no conviction could be had. Such a
state of affairs Is deplorable, but
what Is the remedy.
Will It Be Done?
The Iiko county authorities will,
and should leave no stone unturned
to apprehend the parties guilty of
the killing of tiny McCune's sheep In
the northern end of that county
some weeks ago. The deed was so
cruel, so utterly wanton and das
tardly that every effort should be
made to bring the guilty scoundrels
to Justice. There can be no posslblo
excuse for such acts. Cattle men
sometimes become so exanperutod as
to drive sheep oft the range. But
the butchery of 2,ri00 Innocent
animals Is without precedent.

Senator Hansbrough, chairman of
the public lands committee, intro
duced a bill Feb. 20th, amending the
lieu land law in a way to rob It of
Its objectionable features. In view
of the fact that Hansbrough backs
the measure, It is sure to receive con
sideration. Ills bill provides that
wherever lauds covered by patients
or nupcrfected claims are Included in
forest reserve, hereafter created, the
owner of such lands may, upon re
linquishing title to the Government,
hare his lands and improvements
appraised and lie paid by the Secre
tary of the Interior the full appraised
value of the same, but ho shall not
hare the right to select other land in
lieu of that relinquished.
A second section provides that "no
forest reservation shall hereafter be
created covering any lands within
the limits of any railroad grant."
The last section provides that ar
sons owning lands within exlstlug
reserves may surrender their hold
ings and select In lieu thereof tracts
of equal area, but of approximately
the same value as ttie tract surrendered.
