Early newspaper accounts made note of the fact that City Folk were turning out in record numbers. The a a monster big tent measured 150 feet by 175 feet used two and a half Miles of rope 1,400 bolts of Canvas and 114 poles. Stockmen plan permanent show first National a big Success Stock show 1/5/1905 during the week of january 9th. Denver is to be the Mecca of thousands of stockmen from All parts of the United states. While the primal cause of the gathering is the eighth annual convention of the National live Stock association the meeting is to be a general conference Between men representing All the various branches of the live Stock Industry and there is reason to believe that there will be practical results from this meeting that will be far reaching in their importance to the Industry. For a number of years the stockmen of the country have been seeking to organize themselves for the purpose of bettering their conditions. Organization has been accomplished in a fragmentary sort of Way. But there has been More or less friction Between the fragments. The National live Stock association was organized with a View of bringing these fragments together As a solid unit. Never before have stockmen so realized the necessity of a better understanding and stronger organization. Understanding the necessity of better knowledge and stronger organization the stockmen from All branches of the Industry will get together in Denver for a week and in conference try to perfect an organization that will bring some practical results. In order to have a detailed plan As a basis of operation. President Hagenbarth appointed a special committee to prepare such a plan for the consideration of the stockmen when they meet. This committee has been at work and will be ready to report when the convention meets. At the convention a special committee consisting of three men from each Branch of the Industry will be appointed to consider this matter. This will provide the general conference Between the branches. The plan proposed will enable each interest to be represented and is a Radical change from the method of organization heretofore in Force. The sole executive authority of the National association will be confined to an executive committee consisting of one Man from each Branch of the Industry. This committee will be known As the a Central committee a and each general committee will select one of its members to represent its Branch or interest on the Central committee. Delegate conventions Are dispensed with and in place there will be annual meetings at which All the general committees meet in joint session to hear reports of officers and make suggestions and recommendations to the Central committee. On All Ordinary matters a majority vote of the Central committee will prevail but in matters affecting policy or commercial interest. Any Branch shall have the right to protest in which Case the matter must be referred to the general committee of the interests directly affected and provisions Are made to enable these general committees to meet in conference to discuss such matters. This practically Means that in matters of vital importance there must be unanimous consent on the part of the Central committee to secure action. Objects to be attained 1. To allay friction Between the various branches and interests of the Industry by providing an Opportunity to Confer with each other readily thus producing a better understanding of the conditions and necessities of each and the obstacles with which each has to contend. 2. To encourage More advanced and scientific methods in the production transportation marketing and manufacture of live Stock. 3. By co operation with the various departmental branches of the Federal and state governments to secure intelligent development of the live Stock Industry in All its branches along both educational and commercial lines. 4. To develop plans for collecting and disseminating vital statistics and other valuable information in relation to the live Stock of Commerce and As far As possible to eliminate the present Uncertain knowledge regarding the Supply 5. To develop plans for a better distribution of live Stock on the markets and to eliminate As far As possible the present disposition to oversupply and glut the larger markets at critical times. 6. To encourage and assist in better organizations within the various branches to the end that there May be More intelligent action and a More stable base to the Industry. In matters where there is a conflict of interest Between branches represented the first Effort must be devoted towards securing a perfect understanding As to the actual Points of conflict and by conferences Between such interests seek to bring about if possible the elimination of the cause of conflict. Where this is found to be impossible such matters will have to be adjusted outside of the association and in such manner As the interests involved May determine.
