to a decision made public ny the dis-

decision secretary Houston says:
"Many important changes have
taken place due to the present war
conditions and the stockmen have
been called upon to overcome many
difficulties in order to keen up the
country's supply or beef mutton

use but also to help meet the needs
of the allies.
"In view of this situation I have
decided to defer action in connection
with any further increase in grazing

The secretary's letter also states
that no long term grazing permits

' El raso will have a chance to land'
the coming convention of the Texas'
Cattle Kaisers which was to have
been held next March at San Antonio;
following news from the latter city
that it cannot entertain the conven-
tion properly due to the large num-
ber of soldiers quartered there occu-
pying all available living accommoda-
tions. After receiving notice that San
Antonio would not attempt to enter-
tain the convention president J. M.
Wyatt. of the chamber of commerce
decided to take up the matter of trying
to secure the convention at the next
meeting of the board of directors.
It is pointed out that El Faao has
no other convention of sixe in pros-
pect and that better arrangements
than ever conld be made for the en-
tertainment of the cattlemen. It is
estimated that there would be fully
S000 visitors in attendance. El Faso
has not had the Cattle Raisers' con-
vention since 190J. which is urged as
a further reason why the convention
should be brought to the city.
Dalian and Oklahoma Bidder.
Dallas has already put in a bid for
the convention it is understood and
it is certain that Oklahoma City will
also try to secure the meeting. For
various reasons however local boost-
ers believe that El Paso has a good
chance to secure the meeting.
The decision to give up the conven-
tion was made at a meeting of 21
resident cattlemen of San Antonio at
the Cattlemen's exchange there Mon-
day. Reasons for the decision were
contained in a letter read by CoL Ike
Prvor. of San Antonio and endorsed
bv all present. It was stated in the
letter that in addition to 00.000 sol-
diers there was a large number of
tourists and visitors in the city thus
taxing the capacity of the city's
hotels to the utmost.

COTTONSEED CAKE IS IN
GOOD CONDITION REPORT
That the cottonseed cake storeu
at Galveston is in excellent condition
and that all tne product will be care-
fully inspected at the college station
in Galveston is the information con-
tained in a telegram from E. A. Pe-
den food administrator of Texas re-
ceived bv George H. Clements secre-
tary of the El Paso chamber of com-
merce. The telegram was in answer to re-
ports .tending to keep down the sale
of the cake by representing that it
was not of good quality. Since the
action of the government in estab-
lishing a uniform price for the cake
of from S to J10.&0 lower than had
hitherto been received by dealers it
is reported that attempts have been
made by "parties whose interest t is

quantities to cattlemen of the drouth
