It Would do Ore&t Injury to The
Stockmen of Lake County if
It Should Become a Law.
I read In the Daily Oregonlan of
Jau 30th that Henator Kinith of Uma
tilla county Introduced a bill which
panned the Henate on Jau 30th, re
quiring that "hair brand" lie placed
on cattle liefore they are driven from
one county to another. The pur
pone of the bill, ho he explained, was
to prevent the driving away, Inten
tionally or by miHtake, of tattle le
loURing to other imthoiih. Such a
ineiiHure It HeeiiiH to me, if enacted
Into law, would miult In great In
jury to the cattle interent of Lake
county, Ih well an the entire ntate.
All mtoiih In thin nee t Ion who are
engaged In the cattle Imluntry have
itfiefr cattle already branded, whether
they own many or few. Many own
large herds which ncatter over a con
Hiderable woie of country during the
Hummer Heanon, not Infrequently
ranging Into two or more different
counties. Thene cattle are gathered
together In the fall or early winter
and driven to their home winter ran
ges, which now almost universally
consiHts of feed yards. If the owner,
of these cattle were compelled to
brand those that stray outside the
county In which Is situated the wln-
lore crossing the county line, for
home, It would siifjtt tfte owners td
endless ex iense and botiief ns well
as serious da singe to the stock; as
every well Informed and practical
stockman well knows that cattle
branded iu fall or winter do not re
cover from the effects of such handl
ing before the following season, if at
all. Many owners of cattle in Silver
Lake, Summer Lake and down frcm
the Chewaucan, drive their entile
every spring to Klamath county
where they hire pastures from the
Indians during the summer months;
those cattle are again driven back
into Lake county every fall, whore
they arc fed during w inter, and where
their owners reside. I'nder the pre
pared law, those cattle must be
branded with a "hair brand" when
driven into Klamath from Lake dur
ing the spring drive, and again as
they come front Klamath back Into
Lake In the full.
Again, all beef cattle driven nwny
from Lake county towards Shasta
Valley pass through Klamath Co.
Under the proposed law before pass
ing over the line Into Klamath Coun
ty they must be branded, either by
passing the stock through a chute,
or by roping und throwing. Either
of which process would cause stock
to lioRln falling away in flesh as it
w ould lie Impossible to brand with
out severe treatment, which to say
the least would yearly cost tho cat
tlemen of Lake many thousands of
dollars, with no appreciable benefit
resulting therefrom. The proposed
bill would not meet the desired
object that is, prevent steuliug as
any one who wished to steal cattle
would not hesitate to place on them
a "hair braud" if necessary. Mr.
Smith's bill should not becomealuw.
