SHEEP AND CAITLE
TO GET TOGETHER
Hearing Held Before the
State Land Board on the
Application of Two-mile
ttw an( j enforcement or the leas
ln g Q f „(Ate lands within the area of
the s tookmen claim la protected by
The stock and the sheepmen were
aparenUy no nearer an agreement late
yesterday regarding the two-mile limit
that law, in the hearing before the
land board, than when they started.
The matter of definitely deciding upon
and adopting the rules governing the
leasing of the land was Anally left up
to the state land board. That body
will meet later and decide Just how the
leasing problem will be handled. The
stock and sheepmen unanlmouely
passed a resolution thanking the board
for the time given them at the hearing.
Briefly summarized, the sheepmen
claimed that to take from them the
right to lease state school lands within
the two-mlle limit means the ruina
tion of the sheep Industry. They plead
for time to be able to "get out from
under" In the sheep business.
The stockmen, on the other hand,
claimed the right to all of the grazing
land within the two-mlle limit law
because they alleged the law Intended
to bar the sheepmen from the use of
the range within that area, and yet
they were being permitted to trample
out the range by trailing sheep across
It so that It became useless for stock
Insofar as pasturage Is concerned.
They seemed to be of the opinion that
It Is Impossible to divide the range
between stock and sheep.
Among the speakers for the stock In
terests were S. B. Blackwell of Glenns
Ferry, Roll Myers of Horseshoe Bend,
K. B. Crawford of Welser and officers
of the Idaho Cattle and Horse Growers'
association. Frank R. Gooding, Na
than Ricks, Sam Ricks, Senator K. D.
Houtz and others spoke for the sheep
Sheepmen Plead for Time.
Governor Gooding declared that If
the state lands are removed from the
leasing column the Industry stands to
be shortly ruined and he pleaded for
fair treatment and the right to grad
ually get out of the sheep business as
the homesteader encroached upon the
range. He thought It was unfair to
enforce a two-mlle limit law agalnet
the sheepmen because a homestead hod
been taken, as is the case, hs said. In
many Instances, by those who never
become bona Ade homesteaders. Na
than Ricks made a similar argument.
He declared that no industry was doing
more for Idaho than the sheep and it
was entitled to fair consideration. It
was his argument that the priority
right of stockmen and the two-mile
limit law mean ultimately that the
sheep Interests will have to go out of
business. He added he was for the
home builder as strong as any stock
Marauder le 8cored.
The marauder eheepman was at
tacked by Senator Houtz, speaking
from the sheepman'a standpoint Ha
claimed the land board should take
some step to bar the roving French
and Basque flock owners from the
range. Senator Houtz represented the
Portneuf Sheep Grazing association.
Sam Ricks alleged the marauder
"doesn't live In Idaho or anywhere
The bitterest attack against the
sheepmen was made by E. B. Crawford
of Welser. He declared that he was the
only man In his section of the country
who had stood out against the sheep
men in the use of the range and had
been successful. He mentioned fighting
the Butterfield Livestock company 'n
this regard, declaring they absolutely
refused to abide by the terra» of the
two-mlle limit law. The sheepmen, he
declared, were "ruthless and design
ing" and always against the home
steader. The latter, he said, to be the
builders of Idaho and worth In the
long run more than the sheep men.
"I'm a cattle man and I wont you to
know It," he cried.
What Rules Declare For,
The new rules proposed by the land
board were presented and read rule by
rule after which they were discussed.
These rules declare against a policy
that will result in the monopoly of the
range by controlling the watering
places. Declaration on behalf of bona
fide residents Is declared for by the
board together with fostering of the
livestock Industry, encouragement of
the small owner, permitting the small
stock owner to have access to big
leases, giving communities preference
right to contiguous Isolated tracts, per
mitting trailing across Isolated tracts,
permitting the leasing of state lands
for agricultural or grazing purposes for
a term of from one to five years, limit
ing agricultural leases to 326 acres, al
lowing arable lands withdrawn -for
grazing purposes, allowing a grazing
lease to be changed to an agricultural
lease, assignment of leases, auction of
leases, terms of payment, requiring
leases to give bond and prohibiting the
occupât. on of lands without lease.
The rules further provide that leases
will not belssued to non-residents of
the state of Idaho. Grazing leases ar«
to run from 7 1-2 to 25 cents per acra;
agricultural leases, from 25 cents to $1
per acre par annum. The filing fee la
