(Special Dlspatcb to The Journal.)
Prlnevtlle. Or., Aug. 37. With week
passed since the slaughter or scatter
lng of 1,000 head of sheep belonging to
Morrow A Keenan at Cold Springs, and
time given for a sober discussion of the
stock situation in Crook county, it la
generally conceded that the range trou
ble haa reached a dangerous crisis.
Business men, and especially the stock
owners, stand appalled at the wanton
butchery which 10 daya ago stirred the
county from on end to the other. A
second clash of the sheep and cattle In

feared that with further depredations

The wholesale killing which occurred
on the afternoon of July 19 waa the
culmination of the rang difficulties
which have kept thla county tn a heated
state for several montha past. It has
been thought at different ttmea that
matter had been amicably adjusted
Sheep and cattle men met several
month ago, when the summer ranging
season opened and the dead Unas were
fixed. Agreements, however, which
had been made were broken, and this
fact led to other meeting for satis

Less than a week after the confer

which waa dated at Prlneville, waa aa
'Dear Sir: Tou will please notify the
members of your association that the

P. S. Perhaps you have never real
ised that the reward offered by your as

not our purpose to be testified against
no matter what reward and Inducements
are offered, and the offering of money
rewards simply makes your employes;
xlstenee In Crook county the more
strenuous. You will understand what
tetter Causes Consternation.
This letter caused consternation
among the members of the Antelope
Woolgrowers association, and waa dl
rectly the cause of all herders who left
with their bunds for Crook county to go
Into the disputed district heavily armed.
So far those In charge of foreign herds
have been given no opportunity to stand
In defense of either their lives or their
stock, but It Is hot expected that th
season will close free from the chron
lcllng of another bloody record, and
that this blow will be directed toward
me sheep from other counties.
Contrary to . all expectations, the
laughter of 10 daya ago waa made
against horn sheepmen. Morrow &
Keenan own and range 12,000 head, and
they stoutly maintain that th band
which was killed waa ranging on sheep
territory and that It was driven off of
that district on to cattle grounds before
the slaughter commenced.
It la thla fact, coupled with the feel
ing that even home aheepmen are not
safe with their property even in sec
tions which have been agreed upon, that
haa stirred this county more deeply than
any event which has happened In years.
It can be readily seen that this phase
of the matter rendera the situation
more trying and more difficult of so
lution. Civil authority has been balked
and the ordeal for supremacy muat be
fought out on Intractable grounds under
the rulea dictated by conflicting Inter
Neither the sheepmen nor the cattle
owners have loat time during the past
few months in gathering their strength
for the final encounters. Anonymous
letters from both side have been sent
broadcast throughout the stock district
These letters, aa a rule, have defined the
stands taken by the different stock-own
ers and threats were carried agslnst any
person encroaching upon the territory
claimed aa their own. The letters show
plainly that the ranging districts of the
stockmen of Crook county are directly
opposed to each other, and it 1 pre
sumed that the recent slaughter may
have resulted from a trespass upon
grounds claimed personally by the cat
tlemen even In the face of the agree
ments made some time ago when the
ranging lines were fixed.
As a reault of th recent trouble
Crook county will watch with Intense In
terest the next move to be made. That
other depredations are Imminent la be
yond dispute, a fact born out by th
almost uncontrollable feeling which la
everywhere apparent Stockmen In

Bids for Installing a heating plant In
