General Manager Walters of tho North western Is back from tho convention of tho National Livestock association, hold at Denver.

He found tho Denver meeting the best at tended In years, those present to a large extent being ranchmen and cattlo grow ers from Colorado, Nebraska. Wyoming and South Dakota. From every locality, says Mr. "Valtern, tho reports Indicated that tho cattle men have been going through the best winter In years. There have been no losses worth mentioning and animals arc In good fall condition right now, when or dinarily they are thin. None of tho cattlemen seemed alarmed over the Im portation of Argentine beef and tho re duction of tho tariff. They took tho po sition that beef Is to continue high and that the cost of production Is to remain about tho samo as sow. Increasing, how ever, as land prices for grazing purposes advance. Before adjournment tho convention went Into the feeding In transit questions and the thlrly-slx hour on tho road without feed and water law. The' upshot of the discussion wjb tho adoption of a memor ial to tho Department of Agriculture. This memorial asks that In place of cattle being unloaded for feed and water at least once during every thirty-six hours on tho road while going to market, the railroads bo permitted to supply what Is known as the "feed and water cars." These are cars furnished with racks for the hay and corn and troughs for the water for tho cattle while enroute to mar ket. The memorial was not adopted until af ter It was shown by shippers of long ex perience that In the past the losses havo been heavy during loading and unloading at feed and water stations, whero cattlo havo sustained broken legs, been hooked nnd othcrwlso Injured. Tho testimony showed that wild cattlo In particular sel dom ate when uncarred at stations, whereas. If feed was lilvon to them In the cars, thoy nta of It and reached tho markets In good condition.

"In my oponlng audreas before tho congres, I Bhall dlsouss tho matter from tho hotclman's point of view, and havo assurances that the hotclmen as a body will support mo. "Letters havo come to nie, which show that although many of the best hotels In the country havo adopted tho cabaret and tango feature In their business in order to attract local cafe patronage, they have found that tho temporary profits which resulted were more than offsot by tho loss of permanent nonse patronage. "Tho nolso nnd Into hours Incident to cabnret nnd tnngo parties In hotels, in terferes with tho pcaco and comfort of roomers, built transient and regular, who aro not Interested In tho folly nnd frolic of tho cabnret patrons. "A cabaret Is really a theatrical per formance, and as such Is the business of the showman, rather than of tho hotclman. I am told by eastern hotcl men that tho tide Is already turning, and that both cabaret and tango will soon be discontinued In hotels there." In addition to tho question of such at tractions In hotels, tho hotclmen will dls ouss the desired uniformity of hotel laws throughout tho country, and also tho def inition of Just what constitutes a hotel.
