The tenth annual 'convention of the Na tional Llvo Stock exchange met at Exchange hall In South Omaha yesterday. President W. II , Thompson of Chicago called fho meet ing to order and then read his address , dur ing which he said : This Is the greatest producing country on the -globe , and could easily feed and 'clotho ' the civilized world If the obstruc tions to our foreign commercial Interests were removed. Those engaged In breeding , raising , feeding and maturing our llvo tock through their untiring determination to pro duce nothing but the best , have succeeded In placing It on a par with , If not superior to * the live stock of any nation on earth , llut the producer of this country cannot rest here. Taking Into consideration the climatic and other conditions surrounding him , he should continue to select the very best breeds obtainable , changing often to pro. vent Inbracdlng , thereby Improving his out put until It will eventually become superior to that of any similar product in the world. Aa to values , tbo past year has been a very successful ono for tbo producer. He wlio has been particular about breedn , flesh und age , when marketed , has reaped the reward duo his labor nnd Intelligent applica tion of knowledge as to the requirement. On tbo other hand , he who has been In different as to breed , shape , condition and age , has paid the penalty ol neglect of con forming to tbo demands In these particulars. It should not be forgotten that to obtain the best market values , the animal must bo one-half to three-quarters bred , of the best strains of blood , nnd should bo prepared and marketed at the earliest possible age In order to bo profitably to the producer , the slaughterer and the consumer. Why should not this country with her unlimited domain , her perfect climatic con ditions , her fertile hills , luxuriant valleys , ' ' boundlem plains , and 'her Intelligent husbandry - [ bandry , stand first and foremost In the j world as a llvo stock producing country ? f The question. In my opinion , Is uuonswer- ' " able. Let the producer ot beef feed and 1 mature strictly for beef ; the. dairy , breed i and raise strictly for dairy products , not crossing with the beef-producing animal. Of L A the. hog the best breed that will mature 'Vjj ' * w nt the earliest age Into a prime light weight , Sj , * . " \ which always brings the hlghett market P * price. Of the sheep the best breed for mutton , not forgetting the fact that If the producer expects to receive the highest mar ket value , they should 'be so bred and fed as to market as lambs , yearlings , and not later tbau two ycari old. Tbo sheep Industry of this country has not yet arrived at a point where It become * necesmy to breed principally for wool , but I6th and Douglas Omaha. JL,1BUDEIS&OIS , , $ PROPRIETORS.

And right hero let me say that during the last year the cattle ranch man has done more to Improve tbo quality of his herd , by the Introduction of thoroughbred stock than nuy year within the history of this country. I would suggest that you recommend such means a to you seem expedient to bring about a change In the methods of branding cattle , urging that th'o brands be placed on otce other part of the animal than the side or rump , thereby making the animal of greater value to the producer. As the great grazing territories of the north and northwest , as well as those of the south and southwest are fast passing awayv It behooves us nt this time to pay the ranch men that tribute to which they arc BO Justly entitled. To them belong In a great measure the credit of developing this vast expanse of territory and opening the samn to the ad vance of the tillers of the sol ) . By reason of their enterprise In raising and herding large droves of cuttle which had to bo transported to market , they created the necessity for and Induced these great arteries of com merce , the railroads , to extend lines through their domain , which Is dally becoming a more and more- valuable section of the coun try. Following the lines of the railroads , as Is Uways the case , came the producer , the bono and sinew of our country. He Is the principal factor of our state governments , the political power , the financial credit of the state In which he lives llu Is the ana to say whether or not the llvo stock of this country shall bo superior to that of any other. * He establishes and supports homo mar kets In the state where he raises his product , ho pays for public improvements , supports his home und. calls around him churches , schools , public nnd private Institutions and nil the comforts and necessities of domestic tranqulllty. , . . , . , . For u state to foster and protect the best lutc'reHts of its producers Is to add strength to Us government. I would suggest that you recommend to the several state governments that , where Irrigation Is necessary and wou d < M to the Interest of the producer , the public funds bo used to supply their needs In this re spect , thereby adding more to the wealth , productiveness and prosperity of their people than many other expenditures for public 1m- PrThoTenefUH of such public irrigation cannot - not be over-estimated. They would be. far- reaching in their effects. It would mean practically a desert waste , often stricken with hrt winds and a total destruction of vegetable life turned Into u land of good crors. good homes nnd good citizens. Horace Oreelev must have bad this In mind when he advised young men to "go west , that the west might have more good citizens , more good homes , good government , good public improvements and. by Irrigation for the dry lands nnd the introduction of thor oughbreds , more producers of good HVO block , , U is quotluK history to nay that prosperity la to be found with the young man who Is Industrious und a muster of his calling. Therefore to the young man of today who has turned his attention to agrlcuIturaLpur- BultK. the question as well as Us solution U referred to make of It what be will U destiny IB lu hli hands , and with a careful attention to details , ever bearing In mind the necessity of Industry , thrift and a com plete mastery of his chosen profession , there Is before him nothing but success. Routine business was then taken up. Uxecntl c Committee Mcctlnir. Twenty-eight out of the thirty-eight mem bers of the executive coirimlttee of the Na tional Live Stock exchange met at Exchange hall yesterday afternoon. It Is expected that additional members of the committee will be here by this morning , when the Annual ses sion of the exchange will bo held. All day yesterday delegates arrived , and while the majority spent tbo afternoon on the expo sition grounds , quite a number called at the exchange and paid their respects to 1'restl- dent Murphy , Secretary Lott and other members of the local exchange. No new business of Importaneo was brought up at the meeting of the executive committee , the afternoon hour being de voted mostly to the reading of the minutes of the last session. The minutes were ap proved and the report of the executive coni ; mltteo which will be made to the convention today was prepared and adopted. It was announced that tbo national association was In a flourishing condition and that the business of the 6ifferent exchanges was be ing conducted In a satisfactory manner. The principal question to be considered by the exchange today will bo the application of the war revenun tax to the llvo stock business. It will be recommended that the national exchange make a test case for all fifteen of the exchanges represented In the organization. The Idea of making ono case Is favored as | t will save expense to the different exchanges and ono decision will affect all exchanges alike. Members of the exchange consider that the live stock busi ness Is overtaxed by tbo war revenues and the test will be made along this line. Nearly all papers executed by commission men must bear revenue- stamps and while the amount In individual cases Is not much the ag gregate Is considerable , III AttiMiilnnce.

The first business of Importaneo was the adoption of the following resolution : Whereas , There Is n great scarcity of meat supplies In Germany nnd consequently al most prohibition prices In many parts of that country , and In view of the fact that there 1 n good deal of agitation In favor of the admission of American llvo stock ; therefore , be It Resolved , That It Is the sense of the Na tional Llvo Stock exchange that the time Is opportune for the national Department of Agriculture to make herculean efforts to se cure the opening of the doors of Germany to American rattle. Secretary Baker next read the report of the executive committee. This committee favored the enactment of a federal law hav ing for Its object the establishment of u cab inet department to be known as the De partment of Commerce and Industry. A bill for the establishment of such a department Is still before congress. The commltteu re ported having co-opcrntcd with the secre tary of agriculture In making changes and maintaining the federal quarantine line. In February last this committee participated in a convention held in Chicago with the object in view of lifting the price of Amer ican corn and Increasing the use and value of grain , fodder and fiber. Further , this committee assisted In the formation of the American Malzo propaganda. In April last this committee brought to the attention of the secretary of agriculture the hardships worked on exporters of live cattle by unjust rules and regulations of the department gov erning the period of rest at seaboard of rattle Intended for export and succeeded In accomplishing reforms which have proved satisfactory to these engaged In the business. This same committee reported having con sidered the war revenue law and its appli cation to the live stock commission business and recommended that all members comply with the law , under protest , when called upon to do so by local collectors of Internal revenue. A test case was recommended. The Indianapolis Live Stock exchange was recommended for membership In the na tional exchange. The report of the coramlt- ten was adopted. The suggestion that a uniform commission charge bo made for buying stockers and feeders did not meet with the Ideas of the committee and In this the committee wan upheld. Time of Stork mi 'I'm I UN. Some time was taken up In the discussion of the tweuty-clght-hour law and It was tha sense of the meeting that the law should bo changed. H wag stated that with tbo Im proved facilities for shipping cuttle a tort/ hour trip was rot unreasonable. It was stated that at the time this twenty-clght- hour law was passed the railroads did not provide for the feeding or watering of stock In transit. Now the stock cars used were provided with conveniences of this sort and there was no need of subjecting stock to the harsh treatment afforded at many unloading stations. Hog raisers voiced the sentiments | of the cattlemen In this respect , all being , opposed to the present law. President ] Thompson said that foi the sake of human- , Itv the law ought to be changed. Conditions had changed so much lately that there was no necessity for such a law. Thlu matter was , after considerable dlscubslon , referred to the Incoming executive committee. When the war revenue , tax came up for final disposition It was referred to the cx- pcutlvo committee. The old officers were re-elected without discussion. They are ; W. H. Thompson , president ; C. W. Baker , secretary ; Levl B. Doud , treasurer. All of these officers are residents of Chicago. Ijxcoullvv Coin ml liftL'liOMcn , Next came the selection of an executive committee. Each exchange Is entitled to ono vice president and two members of the executive committee. " The selection made ] follows. In each case the name of the vice | nresldent Is given first : Plttsburg W.

At the conclusion of the confirmation of this committee T. B. McPherson of the local exchange Invited the visitors and their wives to partake of an Informal dinner In the now exchange dining hall. Mr. McPher- on stated that at the conclusion of the meal a special train would be In readiness to con vey the visitors to tbo exposition grounds , where they would bo the guests of the ex- i change. Mr , McPherson's remarks were' ' greeted with cheers and when these had j I , subsided President Thompson announced that the next business would bo tbo selec tion of a place of meeting for next year. Met- Time Follow * On. This opened the gates for a lot of good- natured speeches and considerable amuse ment was afforded those present by the re marks made , Horace Wood presented St. Joseph , James King St. Paul , T. H , Graves Indianapolis , G. B , VanNorman Milwaukee. M. B. Scruggs of Kansas C'lty suggested that the convention meet at South Omaha again next year. He ald that the local members I of the exchange had taken palus to prevent ' any member of the delegation from spend ing a cent and for that reason ho felt that South Omaha was a good town to tie to. T. B. McPherson of the local exchange came and thanked , Mr. Scruggs for his kindly remarks about South Omaha , but suggested that the next meeting bu held at St. Paul , ns the convention had already made promises to this effect. Secretary Baker read a letter from the Chamber of Commerce of Niagara Falls , N. Y , , asking the exchange to meet there next year and then the balloting commenced , St. Paul had the best of It from the start and maintained tills to the end. The next convention will bn held at St , Paul , at a time to bo selected bv the executive committee. A motion to ndjourn was then declared In order by the chairman und the convention adjourned. At the conclusion of .the meet ing a short session of the executive com mittee was hold for the purpose of transact ing some routine business. Before adjourn ing the convention passed u resolution thanking the members of the South Omaha Llvo Stock exchange for the treatment oci , corded. It Is needless to say that this wen ( through with a rush and a cheer. The dinner to the delegates which was given In the largo dining room at the ex change was rather un informal sort of an affair. The menu was nil that could be de sired , every delicacy on the market being provided. Each guest was presented with a souvenir lu the shape of a book contain ing photographs of the exposition , the first Page being devoted to the menu. On the cover was a photograph of the Arch of States with the title of the organization being en tertained. Clironlu Dlurrlioen Coiitrnuliil lit ( lie .t-rmv.

Thus the two crowds about the passenger stations neutralize each ether. The prospect of u lurgo dally attendauco at the exposition for the next few days Is Kood.
