Silver City Independent. That Lease Law. The following in regard to tho lense law will be read with inter est by all who are interested in ; range stock: Mr. Charles T. Adams. 1 CarlsbJd, N. M. Dear Sir: I have your favor of the 2oth. inst. inquiring what action was : taken in regard to the "lease j law" at the National Wool Grow lers Convention held in Helena. That convention passed a reso lution as strongly against any government control of the range for grazing purK)ses as it possi bly could, and intends making every effort to defeat any pro Iiosed legislation for that pur pose. The convention was a large and enthusiastic one, in numbers several times as large as the con vention held in Denver. Ten thousand dollars was raised in the convention to be used in ed ucating the public to the evils and dangers to the sheep indus try of a lease law and for the purpose of sending a committee to Washington to work against the passage of any such legisla tion should it be necessary to Bend such a committee this win ter. You can rest assured there will be a most determined fight made to prevent the passage of a "lease law." Cured Lumbago. A. Ii.
