Fobt Worth, March 12. The Northwest Texas cattlemen's associa tion met here .In annual session to day. Over two hundred cattlemen were present. President A. P. Bush called the meeting to order.

They bad caught stolen eattle at Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City and other points aggre gating In value $10,465. Many cattle were also recovered on the range. Total collections for the year, $0,023; balance on band, $704, the association being financially in a healthy condi tion. During the year twenty-three members, representing 60,00 head of cattle, have neen admitted to mem bership. The Fort Worth union stockyards projoot was heartily en dorsed. The committee submitted a proposition from the Dahlman refrig erating company to tbe oflfeot that in consideration of the sum of $1 per head, to be paid to Ibe company, it would begin the slaughtering and re frigerating of cattle for export to En gland under contract with an English syndicate, the subscriptions at tbe one-dollar rate, to be paid pro rata -monthly. Action will bo taken on this proposition to-morrow. The great question of the association was then taken up on a resolution offered by J. N. Simpson that the association was opposed to the inspection of cat tle on the hoof in tho state where they were slaughtered. After a long discussion, tbe resolution opposing inspection was adopted by an over whelming vote and the convention adjourned till to-morrow. The Lb Hall tbe Cheapest. San Antonio, Maroh 12. A resi dent of San Antonio, who desires bis name withheld for business reasons, speaking to-day of the Interstate com merce law and railway discrimina tions, said: "I will tell you bow the thing is worked against San Antoulo. Re member I am discussing facts, not theories. I bad some non-perishable freight to ship to Ban Franclaoo. The rate from San Antonio to that point is $3.60 per 100 pounds. I sent the freight first to New York, for which I paid $1.60, 1 reshlpped thenoo for San Francisco, for which I paid$1.70,total $3.80, or a saving of 80 cents on every 100 pounds, whioh In car loads amounts up considerably. It was right funny to see my freight come baok through here some weeks later, and I had a moro intense appreciation of thejoke, us I saved money by it. I clve you the inoident simply to show you that there Is suoh a thing as dis crimination and that It Is consider ably prevalent around hero." Deserted and Desperate. Gainesville, Tex., March 13.
