Lemma 100.17.8. Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$, $g : \mathcal{Y} \to \mathcal{Z}$ be morphisms of algebraic stacks. If $g \circ f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Z}$ is locally of finite type, then $f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ is locally of finite type.

**Proof.**
We can find a diagram

where $U$, $V$, $W$ are schemes, the vertical arrow $W \to \mathcal{Z}$ is surjective and smooth, the arrow $V \to \mathcal{Y} \times _\mathcal {Z} W$ is surjective and smooth, and the arrow $U \to \mathcal{X} \times _\mathcal {Y} V$ is surjective and smooth. Then also $U \to \mathcal{X} \times _\mathcal {Z} V$ is surjective and smooth (as a composition of a surjective and smooth morphism with a base change of such). By definition we see that $U \to W$ is locally of finite type. Hence $U \to V$ is locally of finite type by Morphisms, Lemma 29.15.8 which in turn means (by definition) that $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ is locally of finite type. $\square$
