DAILY EAST OREGON
HAVE WINTERED BETTER
THAN FOR FIFTEEN YEARS.
Promlslnq Prospects Before Snake
and Clearwater Stockmen Fat
Cattle Plentiful Sixty Days Early
Never In the history of the cattle
Industry In this country have things
looked so promising for tne range
men as they do today, says the
Grangovlllo News. The novice may
predict disaster to the Industry be
causo of the unprecedcntcdly back
ward spring, basing his prophecy on
the old story of beef stmt just get
ting out of winter Quarters.
This may apply to the big ranges
of Colorado, Nevada, Wyoming nnd
.Montana, but it will not to this pe
culiarly favorable region. Col. Hob
Jones, one of the largest growers,
Blockers and feeders and buyers In
the West asserts that not in Ifi years
have cattle In Idaho county wintered
out bettor than they have this year.
Fed stuff was ready to be sent to
grass this year long before the top
ranges were ready to receive them;
and river stuff from the Snake, the
Salmon nnd the Clearwater, with the
several tributaries of tho lnttor, never
looked better, when pushed out on
top, than they do this spring.
It would make a "long range" grow
er turn green with envy to see the
rattle from this region after a winter
lay out. On the Snako river the cat
tle were ranged high until nearly
Christmas when nearly all wore pull
ed down Into the rich bunchgrasses
of the brakes.
This was also tlio procedure along
the Salmon and Clearwater livers.
As a result beef stuff for market will
be ready this year at least BO days
earlier than for many years past.
RANGE BURNING UP.
Eastern Oregon Foothills Now Parch
ing and Creeks Very Low.
Stockmen in the cattle regions of
Eastern Oregon and Western Idaho
are facing a deplorable condition ac
cording to Charles Worth, of Walla
Walla, who returned from a week's
trip through that country Tuesday,
says tho Statesman, There Is prac
tically no grass on the range, the
creeks are drying up, hay is scarce
nnd worth from $1C to $2(1 a ton, and
stockmen aie generally despondent
over the situation.
"I found conditions wnr.se than I
had heard they were." Air. AVorth said
this morning. "In the Union county
district there Is practically no snow
In the mountains and many of the
streams aro running less wnter than
they did last December In the middle
of winter. The spring has been ex
ceedingly cold and backward and
grass has hardly begun to show on
the ranges yet, necessitating much
feeding. Hay Is scarce and high and
many of the stockmen are turning
their herds off as rapidly as possible.
"From what I could loam in talks
with soveral large stockmen they are
seriously thinking or giving up the
stock business and coming Into this
country. They believe that the day
tor getting rich in the cattle business
Ih past. The ranges are restricted I
and overrun with sheep and the altn
ation has resolved Itseir Into n case
of feeding a good part of the year."
