STOCK DIEP RTMEI T. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] The FJuture of Stock Ramsing. The question has been put to tithese cattlemen again and again the past tWo weeks: "What is the future of your business?" and the uniform answer is. "Diminished but still handsome profits." Their faith is shown by their works. They sell land in quantities and cattle in numbers which would seem to. indi cate they are closing out all their stock interests. It would be a mistake to ac ctpt any such impression. Tempted by the offers which those who want to in vest are making, the cowmen are selling a range here and a herd there, butno one in twenty turns the half of his pos sessions in land and stock into cash. He passes over enough to start a bank build a forty thousand-dollar residen as one has just done in Henrietta, or to` enable him to set up an establishment in the city, but he at the same time holds on to other land and other cattle.

The Opinion Growing at Chicago That a "Dark Hore e" Will Win the Race. The Outlook at Chicago. CHICAGO, June 2.-The hotels were besieged to-night by a host which jam med the lobbies and corridors to a point of suffocation. It was composed of peo ple aimless in their wanderings, save, possibly, of being near the scenes of supposed action. They found, however, the headquarters either emptied of dele gates or barred against entrance. At the Grand Pacific they gravitated into the commodious Blaine quarters, and possessed themselves of the campaign literature scattered about profusely, viewed monotonously the recurring pic tures of the Maine man, and then strug gled painfully to extricate themselves from the mass, and toiled through the packed hallways to renew the same ex perience in the Arthur and Logan headquarters.

STOCIK DEPARTIMENIT. [Contributions for this page respectfully sollcited from stockmen and others.] Range Rights in Montana. The matter of range rights before al luded to in these columns is daily re ceiving more consideration from the stockmen. In a quiet way they are upon many of the ranges securing a sufficient number of the best sites for handling the cattle, which will of course give them absolute control, and will insure them a degree of permanence in their business, which it could not have otherwise. As a rule, the sites most desirable to the stockmen are not the areas susceptible to cultivation, but are the isolated water holes and small streams in the midst of grazing regions that will sustain thousands of horned inhabitants, and unless utilized in that way would be no better than desert wastes. Beef is as essential to the whole popu lation as bread, besides being a chief element in our territorial wealth, and its production should be in every way encouraged. It is apparent...

As the time for calling to order was at 12 m., the ho tels were the scene of action until about 11 o'clock, when the several delegations ,,arched to the Exposition building some of them headed by bands of music.
