WAStflWOTOJf, Jttly Jl.-Ths cattlemen
Wh bV fence oaf the public raages, have
notjet abandoned tbelr hope' of . securing
some modification of the "order of the pres
Ideat.and the secretary, of the Interior
quiring their removal." The order ws Ig
nored by the cattlemen until It was dlscor
: erfi by them tljftt the officials-were 0eter
mlspd "to hat toe law .enforce Tbeo
an'fffort was made to have leglslatioa en
aefW wblch'would gtVnh cattlemen an
other extension ot time for c'omolla-nt wtth
the law. The effort tailed, and, now pres
sure la- being brought o bear, to Induce Mr.
Hitchcock, the secretary of . the Interior,
te modify the order,- or. at least lln Id
a plan for leglslatioa that .will leave the
cattlemen In possession of the ranges. The
cretary baa been receiving a Urge mum
bor. of, letter, from, oettleraeii throughout
-the country, seme of. them crltlclalng his
position and others urging his assistance
In securing them further rights on the
ranges. The following extract from Mr.
Hitchcock's answer to one' of his corre
spondents very clearly explain the atti
tude of the; administration toward the cat
tlemen and the leasing proposition:
"I am today in receipt of your favor In
. closing a letter, from Mr. Smith, 'In rela
tion to a recent regulation respecting the
removal of fences around ranches In the
western country, and note that you think
there 1 considerable force In Mr. Smith's
criticism of that regulation.
Ha Ko Discretion.
"Mr. Bmlth'l letter has been very care
fully considered, and I assure you it will
always give me very great pleasure to
unit with Mr. Smith In any legitimate ac
tion that 'will add very materially to the
lustre of your present fame.' Quoting further-from
Mr.- Smith' latter, we are hav
ing vert practical demonstration that the
thoroughbred cattlemen all over the cen
tral states have written to their representa
tives In congress and In the senate, and
It may be that some pressure may be
brought to bear that will overcome the
. force of tbt order,' but the mistake our
good friends, . the cattlemen, are making
Is In supposing that the department haa
any discretion la It administration , ef the
laws ot congress, aa enacted by the repre
sentatives ot the people, and which, unfor
tunately. In too many instances are be
ing disregarded by thera.
"The department haa lasued no order nor
regulation that la not In strict compliance
with the law which prohibits the approprla
tlon and occupation by cattlemen of the
public domain, and you, aa a legislator, will,
I think, agree with me that the remedy
for an obnoxious law la Its repeal. It It la
found to be-unjust- and against the in
terests of the majority ot the people ot
this country,- who, are the real owners -of
the public domain.
"I fully sympathise -with Mr. Smith's
very natural and proper desire to find a
market for hi thoroughbred cattle among
the cattlemen who bave fenced In the pub
lic domain to an extent which he evl-
.1 dently doea not realize, and to the exclu-
- alon ot homesteaders and aettlera who are
fully entitled to the protection which the
law guarantees .them.-, He la, perhaps; not
'aware, that in, ede Instance alone 65,000
- acres of the public domain -have, been
. fenced In by ope party, who, with others,'
' was here last, winter endeavoring to se
cure legislation that would Justify such
action upon terms and conditions that
would practically amount to a confiscation
of that amount of the publlo land. 1
. Excludes the Settlers.' ,
"This Is only one ' Illustration of the
hundreds of thousands of acres of the pub
lic domain which have been appropriated,
and the miles upon miles of drift fences
which have been erected, to the exclusion
of settler and homesteaders, without the
slightest compensation to the government
or recognition ot the rights of their fel
low citizens, a proceeding which I am aura
Mr. Smith, as a good citizen, would not
think ot justifying any more than he would
the appropriation . by others of his own
thoroughbred cattle with no proper nor
reasonable compensation for hla loss.
"The department, fully realizes and . ap
preciates the magnitude of the capital In
vested In the cattle bualnes. as well as
the necessity fori rendering every possible
legal and equitable assistance in the pro
tection and development of such an indis
penaable food-producing Industry, bus It
cannot ignore existing laws enacted ' for
the proper regulation of the aame, nor
' could do .otherwise- than oppose senate
bill 8,811, Introduced at the laat eesslon ot
eongress. under the terms ot which, had it
become a law, 'all vacant public lands' in
sixteen states and -territories west of the
Mississippi river would bave been open to
leaae for a term of ten years, and renew
able tor a like period at the rate ot 3
cent per acre, regardless of location or
actual : value aa grazing laud.
"The department la ready -and more
than willing to assist In seourlug. such
legislation aa will, on proper lines, pro
tect and promote the .Interests of the cat
tlemen; and haa so informed tbem and
their representatives, both In and uut of

NEW YORK, July 21. At a conference
Just held at Manhattan Beach, In which
the principal nartlclDanta were United
State Senator Dubois of Idaho, ex-Senator
Pettlgrew of South Dakota, Prof. Gar
rett Droppera ot South Dakota, for ten
years professor of political economy of the
Presidential university of Toklo, and
George Shlbley of Washington, plans were
discussed for the organization of a new
national party. -
So. far a It haa gone the new party
seems to be. an effort to unify the so
called liberal, democr acy, which already
has state organization . In New Tork,
Massachusetts, , New . Jersey, Ohio and
Iowa.. . .
Mr. Shlbley presented for the considera
tion .of the other members of the confer-
nce a complete outline ot a . plan for a
national organization on lines similar to
those of the state organizations .of the
liberal democracj.
At the close of th conference ex-Senator
rettlgrew gave out a atatement, In which
e ssld:
Mr. Brvan will not ha mm ranrilriat nf
the regular democracy In 1H, but he and
his friends hope that he will have much
to say regarding the platform and the
management of the campaign. If he docs
not,' Mr. Bryan and hla associates will
form, a new party, based on the Kansas
City platform. .
, Free Sliver I Dead.
Free Stiver will not Brain be a nolltlral
Issue. When we demanded the free coin-
g of sliver we wanted more money.
Ince then Immense new arold fields in
Alaska and South Africa have been
opened; there' is more money than ever
oeiore ana greater prosperity . This re-
tilt Is what we Drediuted when wa asked
for 'more money. Times are good In the
west in spite of the Beef trust. The farm
ers get more fot their cattle and higher
IJHi'w ior ineir cereals.
But on other nrlnclnles aside from all.
ver, the west has not changed. We adhere
a tne original principles or flemocraoy,
ithough the country la fast drlftlnn awav
from all Its old moorings. The main
trouble la the departure from the original
form of government. A Fourth of. July
oration of ten years ago will not fit today.
Mr. Shlbley, who drafted the outline of
the hew party,' said: '
I have been eneared for vpnra In ttio
effort to establish the referendum, not aa
puny issue, out as an essential to mi
rlty Tule. We have now an organization
in- each' state which intends to nut all
candidates on -record on this question , and
It la bound to be adopted and made a cam
paign issue sooner or later.
