Dec. 10. —Numerousquestions are now being agitated by stockmen throughout the west, which will come up for discussion and actiou at the forth coming meeting of the American Nation al Live Stock Association in Denver. The meeing will beheld in the Broadway theatre of this city. January. 21 and 22 the call having bee issued by President Murdo MacKenzie aud Secretary T. W. omlinson Some familiar topics are to be discuss ed, including the uttitude of the Nation al government on forest reserves and public grazing lands, rail road service and shortage of livestock oars, foreign markets for meat products, meat inspec tion and the cost thereof, etc. But there are to be some new subjects tnnt will bring out discussion and un doubtedly action of some kind by hun dreds of stoedmon who will attend. One of them is the problem of fixing a minimum speed for stock trains. This follows logically the law already in force which provides that the railroads must not keep stock in transmit over 30 hours at a time. The new legislation to be brought up is to move the stock at a certain speed when in transit. This is deemed necessary to insure getting stock to market in good time and in good physical condition. Another questioq to be discussed wilj be the transportaiton of live stook atend ants and refund of fares to parties who go out to receive live stock actualy con tracted for. This question has created no end of trouble reoently. Legislation in various states directed aganst rail roads has brought about a certain strict ness in tiie ujetaapee of transportation within states, and the new national law, of course, prohibits the issuance of trans portation between etates. What the stockmen now desire is to have the law amended in some way so that tne railroads shall furnish them transportation for parties who go to re ceive live stock already contracted for. In some places within states the roads refuse to do this, and betwuea states the are restricted by law. The stockmen takq the position that two trips are uec essary to close a cattle deal, and the railroad should bear the oxpence of trav • el atleast one way. Thebe and many other questions are to be discussed jti the meeting. The financial stringency and its remedy is a question to be debated upon. The po sition taken by the packers iu hanmeaing the market and refusing to pay profi table prices to the groweru will come up, and the question as to how' much has act ualy been accumplished by the packers’ rust for the good of the business through out the country will be discussed.
