R. G. Head has declined the
Presidency of the St. Louis Stock

the confidence and respect of every
stockman in the west, and had he
taken the helm of the new enter

The U. S. Economist thus pre
dicts wool figures for 1S77 : Mark
our words, if the spring season will
not open in Texas and California,
if not Michigan and Ohio at prices
that will make buyers open their
eyes with astonishment. This is
what interests us now most, and not
what the ruling prices are at the
Colonial wool sales, as there is no
possibility of obtaining any sup
plies from there at present, nor in
the immediate futur cither.

A shooting scrape took place at
Brigham City a short time ago be

over some sheep which, it appear?,

between the men and Smith ran in
to his house, obtained his gun and
fired two shots at Thistle, shooting
off his little finger. Thistle had no
arms. Smith (hen pulled his gun
on W. A. Daggs, who was present,

been issued for his arrest. Flag
Col. Lanham, member of Con
gress from Texas, in a letter to C.
E. Dailey, thus expresses himself
on matters relating to the cattle in
dustry: J would be glad indeed to
do anything within my power that
might look towards remedying the
evils of pooling in the cattle busi
ness, which are admitted to be wide
spread and far-reaching in their
consequences. To what limit state
legislation may go, and where, the
powers of Congress might begin in
such matters, I confess I have not,
as yet, definitely concluded in my
own mind. I shall be glad to in
vestigate the subject farther, and if
I find anything can be done I shall
be quite ready to aid therein as far
a"s possible. Since I have been in
public service I have looked with
great interest to our cattle matters.
realize the fact that the industry
therin represented is of the utmost
general importance to our state and
specially to my immediate constit
uency. The Apache County Critic says :
At Clayton's camp, one of the num
erous ranches of the Aztec Land
and Cattle Company, on Monday
night last, Joe P. Thomas, alias
"Kid Thomas," shot and killed
Frank Ward, a young man who ar
rived from Texas last spring. It
seems that Thomas and Ward were
gambling when a dispute arose as
to who held the winning hand. Hot
words were interchanged, when
Thomas drew his revolver, and as
Ward arose to leave the table shot
him through the thigh, severing
one of the main arteries of the leg.
No medical aid being procurable
the wounded man bled to death.
Thomas then went to the corral,
saddled and bridled his victim's
horse and rode away, notwithstand
ing the fact that the camp was full
of men. Kid Thomas was at one
time in the employ of the Aztec
Land and Cattle Company and was
well known in Hoi brook and other
towns along the railroad as a swag
gerer and braggadocio, who was
wont to "shoot the town up' every
time he became loaded with whis
key. His victim is said to have
been a very peaceable young man.
Both of the parties have for seve
ral months been out of employ
ment and were simply "putting in
the time" at the ranch where the
shooting occurred. Thomas is said
to have gone in the direction of the
Tonto Basin country, and is proba
bly by this time in the neighbor
hood of Pleasant Valley, where, it
is said, he has many friends.
The Hoof ana Horn says: In
view of the feeling so general
throughout Arizona that the exist
ing laws affecting the stock inter
ests of the Territory are inadequate
to meet the ends for which they
were designed, we believo that much
good .wtfuld bo co'rttjlisbGd by a.
reneral convention of representa
ives of the stock' interests of all
actions to meet at some available
point in the Territory for the pur
pose of drafting such laws as would,
in their opinion, rectify such defi
ciencies as the last two years have
shown to exist in our present live
stock laws. By the admission of
no representative except those duly
accredited by the organized livo
stock associations of the Territory
to express their views and repre
sent them, such a convention would
be endowed with an influence which
would command the respect of the
Territorial Legislature, and insure
from that body a careful and pa
tient consideration of any measures
relating to live stock matters that
it might present. Selected, as ther
delegates would be, by the different
associations of the Territory, its
character would not be susceptible
of the charge so often made against
such conventions that it was com
posed of the rich, and for the rich,
and that the small fry had no show
or share in the results of its delib
eration. Each association, if it
deemed proper, could fully and dis
tinctly instruct its representatives
as ,to its views and wishes on the
subjects to be considered by the
convention, and by such means a
general expression of the senti
ments of the stockmen of the eng
tire Territory could be obtained,
A Dallas (Tex.) of the 15th inst.
says the meeting of the Texas Live
stock Association in this city ore
the 15th of January will be the
most important meeting of the sort
ever held in this State, and will in
all probability be the most numer
ously attended, as it comes at a
crisis in the affairs of the Texas
cattle business involving the solu
tion of several questions of vital
importance to that 'brtinch of in
dustry. For the purpose of im-
pressing the importance of the '
meeting upon the minds of stock
men all over the State, and secur
ing as large an attendance as pos
sible, and at the same time map
ping out a programme for the meet- '
ing and making arrangements for
the entertainment of the visitors,.
Col. C. C. Slaughter, Col. John N.
Simpson, Gen. W. B. Gano. iiud
several other prominent cattlemen
of the city, held an informal meet
ing. It was decided to extend in
vitations to the working members
of the Central Texas Cattle Asso
ciation, the Pecos Association, the
Northwest Texas Association, and
all other cattle associations in the
State, to meet with the Texas Live
Stock Association in a sort of Con
gress, not only for the purpose of
discussing matters of moment" to
the cattlemen of the State, but for
the purpose of agreeing upon a line
of policy to be pursued by Texas
in the International Range Associa
tion, which will meet in Denver in
February. The gentlemen thought
by this means they could secure
the attendance of 500 men at the
very lowest estimate. They thought
business would be facilitated by
having the proceedings of each day
to begin with an address or essay
by some person competent to han
dle the matter upon one of the fol
lowing subjects : ''The Lease Law
"Contagious Pleuro-Pneumonia, its
Cause and Prevention ;" "Splenic
Fever, its Causes, Preyention and
Treatment;" "Quarantine Laws;"
"An Outlet for Texas Beef;" "The
Best Types of Beef Breeds." The
address or essay to be followed-by
an interchange of ideas on the sub
ject treated of until noon, the af
ternoon session to be devoted to
other business. In order to arouse
thought the gentlemen decided that
it would be well to offer 'a hand
some premium for the best essay on
each of the subjects mentioned, so
that the Convention may get illum
ination from outside talent.
