JAPAN INSTRUCTS

Tokyo, Japan, Oct. 15—(AP)

consideration for the past
tical action on the part of
The Japanese foreign office to
day instructed its delegation at Gen
eva to use every effort to prevent
the inclusion of including an Amer
ican representative in the League
council. A proposal for the ad
mittance of an American delegate
was made yesterday during the dis
cussion of the Manchurian trouble.
The Tokyo government has
adopted the view that an unfavor
able impression has already been
made on the Japanese people by
Secretary of State Stimson's re
cent note to the League.
Stimson in his message advised
the Council to "in no way fail to
assert all pressure of authority
within the competence of the
League" in working toward a set

American government to persuade
Japan to withdraw objections to
the participation of a United States
representative in the League coun

to rbitrate the Sino-Japanese disa
greement.
When Secretary of State Stim
son was informed today of the
Japanese attitude, he called in Am
bassador Dehuchi of Japan and
explained to him this country's
stand. He said that the United
States would play the part of an
observer to help efforts of the
League to invoke the Kellog-Briand
pact of war renunciation.
Stimson explained further that
the American representative at
Geneva would not take part in any
procedure under the League's cov
enant instruments to avert war.
CATTLE MUST
BE INSPECTED
Brands on All Stock from
County Required to
Receive O. K.
Rulings in regard to the trans
fer of shipment of cattle and
houses, now effective in the state
of Montana, were explained this
week by County Attorny Conwell
and Sheriff John Albert. Observa
tion of the laws has been lax in
regard to the proper inspection of
stock, and a rigid enforcement is
to be made, according to the
sheriff.
The regulations of the Montana
Stock association, with the (state
laws on the subject, declare that
all cattle or horses that are shipped
to market, subject to feeding en
route, Or any stock otherwise
shipped from the county, must un
dergo an inspection of the brands
before leaving the point of ship
ment.
Another regulation that has been
unobserved by some stock raisers
is the rule in regard to pigts. Legis
lation now in effect clearly states
that all swine must be kept in
properly enclosed fields, and that
it is unlawful for any to be al
lowed at large outside of the en
closure.
Sheriff Albert will make the re
quired inspection of_all (stock ship
ped from Red Lodge. Charles
Oliver is the offid»' brand inspec
tor at Silesia, and Deputy-sheriff
Tracy McCall at Fromberg.

YELLOWSTONE BEET
HARVESTING GOES
ON AT RAPID PACE
More Than 25 Per Cent of
Crop is Harvested
Last Week
Billings, Mont., Oct. 14.—(UP)
—The harvest of sugar beets in
Yellowstone Valley is going full
blast, with approximately 25 per
cent of the crop harvested and de
livered to the various dumps.
Growens generally are anxious
to get the beets out of the ground,,
and this week increased labor in
anticipation of harvesting at least
60 per cent of the crop before next
week-end.
C. W. Doherty, manager of the
Great Western Sugar company's
plant here, said the factory was
running at top speed and already
had set (slicing records over prev
ious years.
The sugar content is just about
the same as it was last seaison and
is coming up slowly with ripening,
The wet weather, contributing to
the poundage, has held down de
velopment of sugar somewhat,
Last year a heavy frost in the
middle of October greatly reduced
the sugar content, and growers are
hoping that the season will advance
beyond that date. In which case,
sugar experts say the average con
tent will he higher than last year.
Fieldmen report that early es
timates were conservative and
that average yields will run higher
than had been anticipated. This
is atrributed to the warm wet
growing weather which prevailed
in this region, but which now has
given way to ripening weather
with maximum growth attained.

SILVER FOXES
Brevard, N. C, Oct. 14:—(UP)
—Silver fox farming, heretofore
considered possible only in Can

-a St. Louis corporation, has estab
lished a large ranch in the Blue
Ridge mountains and has over 60

Climatic conditions closely re
isemble those prevailing on Prince
Edward Island, Canada, where do
mestic raising of silver foxes start -1
ed 24 years ago. The altitude, 2,600
feet above sea level, makes the cli-|
mate fairly cold in the winter and
