STOCK IS I'f DISIIIMi.
Two Hundred Thousand Horses
Starving In Eastern Oregon.
STOCKMtN ARt NOT C0NCLRM D
The Animal Are Valueless and No
Effort Has Been Made to
lttu Caere:, Or., Fer. 0. From per
sons who are posted on the ondition ol
range horsee io this com.ty, and from
reports received from the varions ad
joining counties, it ia ascertained that
stock horses are sharing the same fate of
starvation to a great extent all over
Cattle and sheep buyers, win have re
cently visited this city, and who bate
also been in tbe coooties of Crook, Gil
liam, Morrow, Baker, Union, Wallows,
Umatilla, Harney and Malheur say that
in every section they have visited, with
very few exceptions, the owners of bo'h
horses and cattle bave 'despaired of sav
ing more than a small ptr cent id tbeir
In MalLeur the conditions are nxre
favorable for tbe horses thsn in any
other county named, and even there it i
estimated that from 00 to 50 per c i.t
will perish. In Harney, Baker, Crook,
Morrow, Umatilla and Gilliam they
could not be saved, iven if their val-ie
woold warrant feeding them hay, as ail
reports go to prove that there is barely
sufficient bay for sheep and cattle.
Both range and bay is scarce in i lie
greater portion ol Morrow and Grant,
while in Harney and that portion of
Umatilla which joins Grant, thousands
of beads of stock cattle bave been driven
in to winter on tbe surplus bay
No definite estimate can poseibly be
made ss to tbe number of horses thai
wdl peiish in each county, as nine ot.t
often stockmen, when appi cached on
tbe subject, invariably answer that the)
bave no idea bow many tbey bave, and
generally add that it makes little diflVi
euce, as tbey are valueless.
Different parties who have traversed a
portion oi tbe r:rges of lLo counties
mined, in reporting on i't came lor two
mouths patt havo slated that tbe Liilt
were becoming strewn with horce car
cases, and, as tbe conditions are daily
growing worse, it may be safely esti
mated that 200,000 horses will die in
Ea?!ern Oregon befo e tbe middle ol
Conservative stockmen, when asked
why horee3 are allowed to perish in such
a reckless manner, have stated that
since tbe decline of tbe mble animal tbe
herds of sheep and cattle bave increased
to such an extent that tbey alone tap
the country for feed, whereas when the
horse commanded a gxxl figure the
herds of cattle and sheep were kept
propoitionately small. Tbe falling off of
tbe value of tbe horse has resulted in
the increase in tbeir numbers, and theie
is not room for tbum much Iooger in

American Members of the Joint Com

Chicago, Feb. 13. A special to tbe
Tribune from Washington says; It ia
stated here there is a 6erious hitch in
the work of the Anglo-American con.
mission. Tbe obstacle is belieyed to be
a demand made by tbe Canadian com
mission for the ceseiun rf tbe town of
Skagway, Alaska. The American com
missioners have definitely refu.ed.
Skagway is tbe natural gateway to tbe

respecting tbe government of Indian

result of his inquiry it had been deter
