Many thousands of dollars damage
Ivas been done to the stock interests or
Sioux county since its fettlement by
wolves preying upon the herds belonging
to the people. AVhy would it not le a
good scheme to tax those owuing cattlo
those, who would be benefited directly,
say two cents a head, the proceeds to le
used for the hunting and killing those
distructive pests. The total amount
of cattle assessed by the p'ecinct assess
ors of Sioux county is in round numbers
19,000 head. If a small tax as staUnl
above were levied on each head of cattlo
in the county and then the Flock men
in the county would offer five or t-n
dollars a head for every wolf scalp kill
ed on their reactive ranges we believe
it would not bo long until the wolves
would be all killed or driven out of the
country. Certainly such a pchnme
ought to meet with the hearty approval
of all stock men and the tax levy would
effect no bodv but those who owned cat
tle. Why not submit such a proposition
to a vote of the people this fall. Think
