Indian War Veterans.
Editor Times: , Please allow me
space to call the attention of your
leaders to the fact in the Daily Ore
gonian of August 31st, many names
of my old comrades are found who
entitled to various sums of money
Tanging in amounts from a few
dollars to hundreds of dollars.
This money is pay for services
rendered in the early Indian wars
of Oregon, and which is not paid
-for the reason that but few of the
veterans can be found by the gov
ernments This money is due the
old soldiers or their heirs and will
lie paid upon application to the au
ditor of the treasurv at Washing
ton D. C. It is positively stated
that no agent is required to obtain
I am very anxious that all those
who are eutitled to this money
which we earned almost a half :
entury ago, should receive it.
I have the "Hisfory of the Early
Indian Wars of Oregon" which
book contains many muster rolls
and all persons who are interested
in this matter can write me at my
lome at Eugene, and I will assist
them all in my power, free, of charge

WANT STREE j VACATED.
Between Public School Blocks School
Board Petitions for it. .
The school board is asking for
that portion of Seventh street which
separates the school blocks to be
vacated. The plan is to dedicate
the vacate section to public school
purposes, and to convert it and
both blocks into one large campus.
A petition asking theconcessionwa s
presented to the council at an ad
journed meeting Monday night.
The petition- was presented by
Chairman George Lillv, . who "ac
cepted the invitation of the coun
cil, and explained , the purpose of
fhe board. The need of ample
school grounds, Mr. Lilly said, was
apparent to all. The district has
spent $30,000 on the two blocks.
It is hut e matter of a few years
until 1,000 pupils will daily assem
ble at the school buildings. Pre
parations should now be made for
the future. Even with the street
dedicated and the whole property
converted mtoa campus, there will.
within a short time, scarcely be
ample room for the school children
of the district. The growth of the
public school is now phenomenal.
The increasel the first week of the
present school year was twenty per
cent over the same week last year,
The condition must be met, and
every school patron should have an
interest in seeing that the . school
grounds be sufficiently spacious
that the children may not be over
Mr. Lilly also Objected to tele
phone poles that are , being set in
that section of the street for which
vacation is sought. ; ihe presence
there of the poles will always be a
menace to children, he said. Boys
at play will want to climb them.
ana some time or another some
child will be hurt as a result.- No
object should be permitted in the
vicinity to tempt children into dan
ger. There is always enough dan
ger on playgrounds without in
creasing it by setting up additional
appliances to add thereto.
The council took 'no action on
the petition, beyond referring it to
the street committee with, instruc
tions to report at the next
meeting. Some of the councilmea
casually suggested tha t ... there
might be serious objection to clos
ing the street.

SELLING VETCH SEED.
Almost as Good as Chittim The Stock
Exhausted All Growers Made
Money This Year. - .
The demand for vetch seed that
was so marked last autumn, is on
with even greater activity this sea
son. Eight or ten thousand bush
els of it has already been sold " by
Benton . county producers, since
harvest time, and a prominent vetch
producer said Monday that he was
certain he could, if he had it, easily
market another 10.000 bushels
It was here that- the virtue '-of
vetch as hay and as a threshed
product was first learned. Its great
value as a producer and its fine
quality as ha y have within a few
years made " it extremely T popular
on all farms, and last season all
this popularity made itself felt in
an unprecedented- demand for seed.
The demand came not only from lo
cal farms, but from agricultural
ists from all parts of the Willamette
valley and local producers were un
able to supply the orders for seed.
The sowing of a great area for this
season followed, and all the seed
threshed has found a ready sale.
In spite of the large amount of seed
thrown into the market by; Benton
farmers the demand ison the in
crease . All but a few holdings
have, been sold, and the market
will soon be bare again of seed,
with the demand only partly sat
Vetch has proven this year a
most profitable crop. Even with
wheat at 75 cents per , bushel, the
vetch has far exceeded it as a pay
ing crop. The ruling price is two
and a quarter cents per pound, The
yield in most ; instances has been
better than wheat. John Whita
ker raised 2,375 bushels on .100
acres. Last year he got 31 bush
els per acre." A small field in the
south end of the -county is reported
to have made a yield .this season of
36 bushels per acre. At two and
a quarter cents per pound, a sixty
pound bushel brings a price of $1.-
35. Albert z,ieroii sowed , vetcn
and winter oats, and got forty bu
shels per acre of the mixed crop
which he sold at ninety - cents, per
bushel, getting $36 per acre off his
land. r. The oats is easily separated
from the vetch, and John Whitaker
expects in his next sowing to mix
oats and vetch, ": subsequently -separating
them. By sowing the mix
ture the crop can be bound ,nd
harvested like wheat. ; That T7as
the method followed by Mr, Zierolf
this season. s V
How long the demand for sead
will last is not known. Prominent
growers believe that .the require;
ments for the seed are only in in
fancy. The' state of ' Washington
they say is well adapted to growth
of vetch. The same is true of
Southern Oregon, and neither have-j
seed, A Douglas county man
recently wrote John Whitaker and
offered to take his whole crop of
nearly 2,400 ' bushels. ; He also
offered to take the crop of J. N.
McFadden of nearly '2,000 bushels.
Neither sold to him. A Vancouver
bank wrote Mr. Whitaker and '.'of
fered to buy his product : A Lane
county man sent to Southern Ben
ton for two wagon loads and paid
$1.7 5 per bushel for it. In Albany
a dealer displays a sign in . w hich
he offers to sell vetch seed at, 2
per bushel. The need for ' seed in
Washington, in southern Oregon,
and even in , Willamette . counties,
growers believe, will tax the energ
ies of Benton farmers a year or
two yet to come.
Another feature of vetch as a
profitable crop is in the abundance
of its yield as hay. A prominent
grower says he could have made
$40 per acre off his vetch field this
season by cutting it as : hay, The
field would easily, , he ; says have
averaged more than four tons v per
acre, and on account of its excel
lence as hay,' it would have brought"
$10 per ton. J. N. McFadden who
threshed 1,900 bushels of vetch cut
the crop green , is baling the
straw, and has already, refused an
offer ot $4 per : ton for , the "latter.
The straw product alone , will net
him $15 or $16 per . acre from his
vetch fields. 7 : , '; . -
Vetch growers also have their
eyes on eastern states , as future '!
market for their seed. " The , seed
cannot be grown satisfactorily there
they say, and in time, after farmers
there have heard of the virtue of
vetch for hay, for the silo and- for !
other purposes, will draw heavily
on Oregon farmers for seed for their
future vetch fields.
Exclusive of a number of small
lots whose amount could not be se
cured, Benton produced this year
474,800 pounds of vetch, or nearly
8,000 sixty-pound bushels, worth
in the market at 2 , cents, per
pound, nearly $11,000. The entire
value of the threshed crop in the
county, ; will probably , exceed
$12,000. , -
When you want fresh vetch seed go to
Zierolf's. " , " -
