For tin; last few years sheep
from other counties have been com

Among tho barrels of literature
being sent out by Secretary Traffic
Manager J. C. Loary, ot the
American Cattle Growers'
Association, is a letter which
among other things contains the
following paragraph; "Cattlemen
generally favor a just and equitable
plan for the leasing of tho public
domain, A bill providing for such
leaseholds is now being prepared
by this association which will be
presented and vigorously urged for
passage at tho next session of
congress. It will Ijo favorably re
ceived if cowmen generally support
it. Docs it meet with your ap
proval?" The Fxaminer does not
believe there is a single "cowman"
in Lake county, outride of big
corporations, that will support
such a measure. It is a proposition
with tho object in view of crushing
tho small cattlemen and sheepmen.
