When a representative of Tui tv c
eaded upon Secretary Metealf of the f i
ratio cattle growers association tha -
said that owing to the presen
passed by the cattle bouuis tf
Colorado Wyoming and Montana no fever
had ever been developed This under
the rule that no cattle can bo -hipped from
a iess elevation than S50U feet Carrviug
out the rule of this proviso they have foind
it perfectly safe to ship cattle within tue
old line by
Continuing Mr Meicalf laid that the
vast amount of good work performed Dy
Dr Salmon while chief of the bureau of an
imal industrj would amount to nothing and
bo utterly obliterated it the order stood
Seeretaiy Kiisk had never visited the cat
tie section of the West and hi nee was to
tally incapable of forming competent un
derstanding of this matter Theoretically
he possibly might be correct but practically
In conclusion Mr Metealf said that the
order had caused the greatest surprise ami
trepidation among cattle growers generally
After six jears of successful shipping liy
both trail and rail they could not but help
recognize the utmost stupidity in the
measure especially when there was no
cause for it
The general sentiment of the cattle-
ginvers of Colorado is decidedly against it
and voicing the sentiment of tin- cattle
growers of Wyoming the Northwestern
Livestock Journal of Cheyenne will say
editorially to day
Four j cars experience in the handling of
these cattle by rail has satisfied our scien
tific investigators and the practical men
whose money was invested that there was
absolutely no danger from disease to be
feared lrom the movement of herds from
this wide area In consequence there has
been purchased since the beginning of this
j ear not less than fifty thousand cattle by
Colorado Wyoming Dakota and Montana
ranchmen in the district above mentioned
for shipment this spring to their various
Northern ranches to take the place of
beeves shipped out and be matured for fut
ure marketing Most of those have been
tallied out paid for aud are now on the
trail to various shipping points in North
west Texas aud New Mexico They are
being driven through pastures and over
ranges already fuliy stocked by sufferance
and there is absolutely no place where they
can stop and find a range The purchases
believing that the quarantine lines estab
lished by law in the respective states
could be respected as herctoforeaud know
ing that no damage could result to any one
Hence the order of Secretary Kusk if eng
forced not only means the loss of f 1000
000 but it means financial ruin to many of
the operators The oixler savs in plain
English that all of these fKM000 young
steels must be shipped direct to thegreat
markets lor immediate slaughter It is
jiossible that under some former ruling of
the department on the general unwritten
law that the lapse of time purges all quar
antined subjects The secretary may per
mit their removal northward after ninety
days quarantine at the fever line
Should this he done and the cattle be
so held it would simply be
for the reason that there is no grazing
ground adjacent to the shipping points
Ninety davs of fasting and purging would
mean arrival on the Northern ranges in the
autumn so poor that the first blast of win
ter would send them to the bovine heaven
unannounced The loss would be total If
shipped to market for immediate slaughter
the freight charges would amount to more
than tne proceeds of sais
