THE NEW ERA
In God We Trust; All Others Cash, or Good Security.
WALDEN, COLORADO. DECEMBER 19, 1907.
CALL ISSUED FOR ANNUAL
MEETING OF LIVESTOCK MEN
Denver. 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.
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
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.
