TEXAS CATTLEMEN ARE CROSSING NATIVEAND BUFFALO SUCCESSFULLY (Special To The Tribune.) San Antonio, Texas, March 24.—The meeting of the cattle raisers of Texas in this city has attracted a greater attendance this year than ever before. This is due largely to the fact that splendid rains through the winter and a continuation of seasonable condi tions has put the large rangers in bet ter shape than they have been for several years. It is the opinion of all concerned that 1911 will show the greatest cattle production for a num ber of years. Another thing, too, that has added to the interest is the fact that cattle growers have discarded the long horn and are devoting their attention to some of the best breeds known to the busines. In an effort to get an animal that is capable of ac commodating itself to all conditions, some breeders have, lor the past three years, been crossing native stock with the buffalo. One peculiarity of the buffalo is that he never lies down with his feet up hill. He always ap jwars to use judgment in this and is thus enabled to rise quickly. Cattle, however, are not discerning and there are thousands of instances, when for age was short, of poor cattle lying down with their feet up hill and on that account being upable to rise and thus have starved to death.

WILL I OPEN OLD FORTS OFFICERS WILL NOT MAKE KNOWN INTENTION OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT. Forts Along Border are in Bad State of Repair and it Would Take Long Time and Large Amount of Money to Put them in Habitable Condition. Washington, March 24.—By orders to be issued at the war department late today or tomorrow, 230 national guard officers will be detailed to duty as observers at the maneuver camps along the Mexican border, service to begin April 5. Several officers of the Minesota mi litia will be among these detailed, but their selection will be left to Adjutant General Wood. Advices have been sent him as to the number allotted to Minnesota. Each officer will remain in service two weeks, exclusive of the time consumed for travel. Noflhing could (be obtained from high officers of the civil or military ad ministration regarding a report that the government intends permanently to raoccupy the forts along the Mex ican boundary that have been aband oned since the SpanishAmerican war. It is admitted as among the possibil ities that these posts will be garrison ed temporarily should the army now gathered for maneuvers remain in the south for an extended period. Even temporary occupation has not been discussed in administration circles, however, according to members of the general staff to whom such a question would be referred*. It is extremely doubtful whether congress would pro vide the funds necessary for the re habilitation of these abandoned posts even if the administration should de sire to reestablish them. Representative Stevens, who is a member of the military committee of the house, sajd today that all the leg islation in recent years had been in pursuance of a policy on concentration looking to the establishment of brig- a de division posts Since that policy was adopted shortly after the Spanish war, congress has provided vast sums for the building up of such posts as that at Fort Russell, Wyo. Mr. Stevens says he does not be lieve congress would sanction such a move, inasmuch as the necessity for maintaining these small posts has passed by reason of the increase in the facilities for bringing a larger military force together from central points. It was also pointed out that these posts are in a delapitated and unsani tary condition and to rehabilitate them would take a long time besides a large sum of money.
