5tock Inspector of Baker County
Says it Would Kill Sheep Industry.
Jonathan Parker, stock inspector of
Baker county, is opposed to the pro
posed range limit law, that Is now
being agitated throughout Eastern
Oregon, and in his annual report
'First and foremost, we have
enough sheep now in this county be
longing to citizens who pay taxes on
the same in Baker county, to graze
the whole range lying within the
boundaries of the county, and this bo
lug the case, It must inevitably hap

ing range will be eaten down too
closely, and finally permanently dam
aged. If more stock Is allowed to
graze thereon than is to be' found
within thp confines of the county be
longing to citizens of the same.
"It is my opinion that what is
known as the 'two .mile limit' scheme
Is not only Impracticable, and a law
compelling sheep owners to keep
their sheep not less than two miles
away from any agricultural ranch
other than that of tho owner of the
flock, must necessarily result In the
practical extinction of the sheep In
dustry in our county. On the other
hand, I am told by lawyers of ability
who have given the matter attention
and study, that such a law would not
stand the test of either our state or
the federal constitution, on account of
its application being to a special
class of property. Mr. Parker's report
shows that Baker county has 101,115
