CITY OFFICIAL PAPER.
DEPARTMENT TO CO-OPERATE
WITH STOCKMEN'S ASSO
CIATIONS IN MATTER.
Washington, March 20 The Secre
tary of Agriculture has approved a re
vised form of the grazing regulations
which governs use of the National
Forest ranges. ' In the opinion of the
department officers, the, most import
ant departures from the old regula
tions are found, first, in the fact
that provision Is made for recognit
ion of a permanent 'National advis
ory board representing the sheep and
cattle Interests, which will confer an
nually with the Secretary of Agri
culture concerning grazing matters;
and secondly, in the laying down of
a rule that on forests where the quali
ty of range and advantages for rais-
' log cattle and sheep are equal, the
year long rate for sheep after the sea
son of 1911 wtUl be thirty per cent of
the year long rate for cattle.
The new regulations have been made
the subject of extended and most
careful- consideration and are promul
gated at the present time as the re
sult of a general revision made of
all the regulations governing the use
of the National forests. Before de
ciding on the grazing regulations, Sec
"retary Wilson invited representatives
of the two great national organization
of stockmen, the National Wool Grow
ers' association and the American) Na
tional Live Stock association, to pre
sent their views to him on grazing
matters, and to make any suggestions
which they might wish to offer con
cerning the proposed regulations.

had been drafted by the forest ser
vice, were submitted to delegates of

the two associations who came to
Washington in response to Secretary
Wilson's invitation. This action on
the part of Secretary Wilson is de
clared to be in accordance with the
established policy of the forest ser
vice in seeking co-operation with or
ganized bodies of stockmen who make
use of the national forest range. Sec
retary Wilson recognizes that the one
and one-half million cattle and seven
and one-half million sheep which are
annually grazed on the forests bear an
important relation to the price of
beef and mutton in this country, and
that the public need of increased
food supplies no less than the best in
lerests of the stock industry call for
careful methods of regulation to pro
mote the full use of the grazing re
source. In his view, co-operation with
the advisory boards of local livestock
associations! has contributed materially
to the adjustment of range problems
In a way satisfactory both to the
