Tho total Increase In tho number
of sheep In Umatilla county with this j
year's crop of Inmbs, will amount to J
85 per cent of the old stock, which j
makes about 250,000 head of sheep j
owned In the county.
The ranges wore overstocked last
year, and very few sheep were ship-
pert nuL. so the old crop is principally j
all on hand with an additional sur-i
plus of 85 per cent to bo kept on tho
same range area.
Now that the woo is sold, the next
question for the sheopman is tho dis
posal of surplus sheep, In order to
keep tho business going nnd to find
sutllclent range on which to keep a
reasonable number.
There is no disguising the fact, ac
cording to a pioneer sheepman of
tliis county, t hat young sheep are go
ing to sell cheap In this county this
year. The range Is slninly all occu
pied and the overcrowded condition
must be relieved by sales. The con
ditions in thf Kastern and Central
states, where feeders are In demand,
will not Justify more thnn $1.55 per
head for veariings here, nnd this
uneras to l'p the ruling price now.
with few takers even at that flcum.
Yesterday 9000 head of yearling
wethers were offered for $1.55 per
head, but were not sold.
This condition Is not peculiar to
Umatilla county, bill nil Kastern Ore
gon experiences the same condition.
Very few sheep were shipped out last
year. CJiowcrs held for better prices,
shipments drugged along and winter
came on before anv movement find
been made. Then tho same old sur
plus was hold over In hopes that some
thing would happen this spring nnd
now tho added S5 per cent of tho now
crop, has not improved tho sltuntlon.
nnd something must bo done this sen
son or tho hnv crop of Eastern Ore
gon will not lie sufficient to sustain
the number of sheep now owned and
pastured in this district.
The Incomo from the wool crop
this year will be below tho average,
despite the clean, thrifty, vigorous
texture of the crop. Tho sheep are
cleaner and the lleeces wolgh less
than usual, while the better prices do
not equal!.!1 tlio loss In I lie weight of
the fleece. Many of the clips sold
here Monday did not nverage over
SO cenlh per head, while very few
clips averaged $1.10 to $1.15.
Tim running expenses, such as
shearing, taxes, salt, Interest on tlio
investment, and all tho ordinary ex
penses of running a herd of sheep
wore tiie snme as If the dip had been
dlrtipr nnd heavier, while the profit
Is appreciably less.
All these facts are taken into con
sideration by the sheepman, nnd al
though the wool prices liavi- been ex
ceptionally high, and the sales very
satisfactory, yet something must be
done to meet the running expenses of
l lie business and keep the herds down
within ttie range area and the liny
production of the comity.
The expenses go on continually,
while tiie herds are held and very
little Incomo except from the wool
sale Is realized. Rvory liimb which
lives and goes to tho mountain ranges
with Its mother on tho first of June
stands the owner the sum of 311 cents
as actual cost, of productl'ui
The year's expenses added to tills
price, brings the cost of tho yearling
tin lo UMiut $1.50 to $1.70 per head
With the market as It Is now, there
Is hut little profit In tho large herd.
In the overcrowded runge districts,
and the tendency must lie toward
smaller herds and quicker sales

Will Send an Unlnstructed Delegation!
to St. Louis,
lialtlmore, Md., May 2. The Mary
land delegation to the democratic na
tional convention will go to St. Jxiuls
unlustructed. This appeared to be fi
nally decided UKin at the opening of
the state convention hero today. A
unique plan will bo adopted In order
to help nlotig tho so-called oorman
boom and nt the same time leave the
Maryland sonator free to control the
delegation and swing its votes to
whomsoever he pleases.
It Is said to be the plan to formally
invito Sonator Oorman to make
own selection for delegales-at-la
In anv event ho would probably die-
lute their selection, but tho Idea is
that the state convention shall, by
resolution, publicly place tho appoint'
meat of tho delegates in Senator Oor
man's handB. Ever since tho senator
returned from his rocent visit to New
York he has let It bo known that ho
did not want tho Maryland delegation
instructed In favor of him or anyono
else. The plan outlined will probably
be carried out In order to show the
confidence of tho convention In Mr.
Oorman and to proclaim to tho coun
try that tho Maryland delegation was
in thorough accord with him and sub
ject to his wishes. It would be tho
equivalent of an endorsement without
placing Mr. normon on record as a
candidate.
