FIFTY THOUSAND IN BENTON.
Railroad Lands Movement to Force
Their Sale at $2.50 per Acre.
Are Southern Pacific rrilroad
lands in Benton to be sold to actual
settlers at $2.50 per acre? There
are 50,000 acres of such lands in
the county. They lie mostly in
southwestern Benton, extending
from Marys Peak to the Lane coun
ty line. There are also many
quarter sections and smaller sub--divisions
in Willamette and other
precincts. Many of the quarters
are covered with a heavy growth
-of the finest timber, aggregating
millions ot feet per quartet . None
of the lands can be bought at any
price, having been witndrawn a !
lew years ago from the market. !
At first the price of the timber '
lands was raised to $8 per acre,
and then to $12.50, but ultimately
they were withdrawn from sale al
together. There is a law under which it is
claimed that the railroad is com
pelled to sell these lands to actual
settlers at $2.50 per acre. It is the
law that grants the lands to the
xaiiroad in order to aid in construc
tion. The company was the Ore
gon Central, and for several years
before the grant was made, it has
been struggling to get funds with
which to construct the road. A
provision of the grant was that 20
aniles of road should be built with
in a given time. After several ex
tensions of the time limit had been .
.made, finally, under an act fcof con-
gress approved April ioth, 1809, !
the twenty miles was built, and the i
terms of the grant complied with. I
la the act however, it was specified
that the lands should be sold to
-actual settlers at $2. 50 per acre. It
was also specified that the terms of
a&e grant should be accepted by
:4lte company within a year, and
tthat proper acknowledgment of
this acceptance should be made.
This acknowledgment was made
ty the company, the provision with
;reference to sale at $2.50 included.
En spite of these terms, the railroad
company has held the lands, and
has now withdrawn them from sale
-She plan being to hold them until
lands go to a higher price and the
largest possible profit - realized.
Originally the grant eastside and
jrestside, comprised 6,500,000 acres
2n all about 3,000,000 acres remain
unsold. It is claimed that nearly
the half of Jackson county is thus
"stled trp, and the development of
the section retarded by the action
xfi. the company.
The movement to compel the
- company to observe the " terms of
"the law, had its beginning at the
tEagene Shipper's convention.
There.it was advocated by Mr.
: Killingsworth of Portland, and Mr.
JMullert of Jackson county. In Jack
"son it was a political issue at the
election last year, and it was on
.that issue that Senator Mullett
'was elected. Senator Bourne and
' Congressman Hawley have since
taken the matter up at Washington
' and the metropolitan newspapers
liave been discussing it. The pres
" ident is reported to have become in
"terested, as has the attorney gen
eral of the United States. The con
tention is that either legal proceed
ings or an additional congressional
--act will force the railroad to put
the lands on the market under the
terms of the land grant lawv There
is no doubt but the agitation will
aassoit in action by high authorities,
tati-S it looks very much 1 like the
Hands will yet go. to actual settlers
nt the original government price,
sfeoagh the railroad claims it has
-a perfect title. The opening ot
i the lands tinder the terms of the
grant would give very great impet
us to settlement and development
of Beaton, and still greater impetus
to such development - and settle
ment in other Counties, particularly
in Southern Oregon.

Veteh Pasture In Spring.
In western Oregon and Washington,
where fall sown vetch matures for
hay in June and rains are not infre
quent at this season of the year, it is
quite a common practice to pasture it
in the early spring March and April
to keep the growth from becoming' SO
heavy that it will fall before it is cut
and to retard its development so that
haymaking Will occur after the rains
are over. ; If' the crop is heavy and
falls during bad weather, it is best to
make ensilage of it immediately.

Land Plaster on Clover.
In the Willamette valley, Oregon, it
Is a common practice to apply land
plaster to clover in the spring during
March and April. From forty to sixty
pounds per acre applied on the surface
of the ground in the early spring are
said to double the yield of both hay
and seed. '
