"Mi t'ombe wrote me that cer

euhetance, was bis statement as I
recall it. He further said that it
was a great hardship on tbe far

stock up until so late in tbe sea

that state of facte in view. I weot
so far as to say that in my judg

Now, while I do not believe
there is any law making it an of

I certainly would uot. and do not
advise any person to do so without

I do uot belfeve there is any such

guard against tresspassing, then
the general government must fence

believe Congress can delegate to
any official the power to make It a
crime to drive stock upon public
land, still I wish distinctly to state
that I do not adviee any ereon to
violate any such order or rule whan
