A press dispatch from Los
Angeles says: The American Na
tional Livestock association lis
tened toflay to a series of address
es upon a variety of important
subjects in connection with the
industry, and adjourned tonight,
awaiting the rejwrt of the com
mute on resolutions which will
be made to the convention nt 10
o'clock tomorrow. The entire
two days' session have been in
complete harmony, but it is ex
pected ih&t the question of the
adoption of the resolutions will
bring a contest on the subject of
indorsing federal control of the
public domain. Former State
Senator Ammons of Colorado, a
prominent member of the Colo-'
rado Cattle & Horse Growers'
association, is leading the fight
against the indorsement of the
government land policy. Tonight
he appeared before the committee
on resolutions and argued at
length, submitting a series of re

TUB COMMERCIAL CLUII
Although our Commercial Club

Wm. Fnrre, Judge. Miller and
C. W. Ellis, the committeo for

tions in answer to tho query of
the hrigntion Congress as to
how that organization could
best help this section, reported.
Their report appears on the first

A committeo, of which C. A.
Swuck was chairman, reported
having drafted a bill for the es
tablishment of a dry-land farm
in this section, providing for an
appropriation of 915,000. Frank
Davey, C. A. Sweok and Dr. L.
E. Hibbard were appointed to
forward such argument in favor
of its establishment to our legis

nation upon the part of the club
to urge our cause most vigorous

I wish to explain in a few lines in this paper how ou may al
ways no well dressed, bhoes, lints, etc. Lome in and talk the mat
ter over with me you can leave your suit at my place as long as
you want to. Leave your overalls heie when you want your dress
biiit, go to the dance and have a good time. When the party is ov
er come in and change again and your suit may remain hero until
you want it again.
Say, for instance, you ride a horso after cows close to Harney,
Orewsey, Vale, Li wen, Diamond, Narrows, etc., and something
would be going on there. All you need to do is send a postal or
telephone if necessary and your clothes leave Burns by tho next
stager Aftnr your good time return it to me in tho same manner.
I will attend to any further lookout for it. Boys, I will do this all
