There is an unprecedented rush for
homestead claims at the local land of
fice this month. Especially has the
rush been on this week, almost a total
of 140 homestead applications having
been filed during the month, the greater
number from the Siletz reservation
There is about 50,000 acres of govern
ment land on this reservation, not in'
eluded in the lands allotted to Indians,
which is subject only, to location as
homestead claims. The greater part of
this land is valuable for its timber, and
it is for this reason, that locators are
now extremely anxious to take the
lands. Under the provisions of the act
of 1895, homesteaders were required to
pay 50 cents per acre, when the filing is
made, and $1 upon the completion of
final proof, which could be accomplished
after three years occupation. A part of
this act was repealed last winter, refer
ring to the 60 cents and $1 per acre,, but
the filing and filial proof fees remained
the same as heretofore. These lands
had not been suojuct to entry as school
lands, timber lands or anything except
homesteads. A few days ago, when
the state land agent desired to file on
12,280 acres of government lands in this
reservation, the attempted riling was re
jected by Register Moores and Receiver
Galloway, as they held that the repeal
act. did not affect the kind of locations
to be made on the lands, and therefore
did not consider that indemnity school
lands could be located on the reserva
vation. The state land agent has 30
days to appeal to the general land office.
In the meantime, settlers are locating
homesteads on the probable-to-be con
