Large Force of Men, to J

Thar haa auddenly appeared aa active
awakening of th Southern Paclflo Rail
way company in relation to Ita Oregon
grant land. , A fore of it cruiser has
been sent into Polk county and la at

tiguous areas of timber, and It 1 re
ported that a large sal I In prospect.
Couthern Paclflo timber lands In

In various place, and, th air Is rife
with rumor of sales. Th belief I
growing that th company haa planned
to make extensive sales or to offer Ita
land for sale In large tracts. A few
ale have already been made. 1
Alarmed . by the wholesale filing
mad upon their land by settlers and
other who hope by some Interpretation
Of th law to acquire th land at th
statutory price, th railroad company I
believed' to hav settled upon a policy
for the future In- relation to th grant.
On theory 1 that th company Is ao
cumulating evidence to establish a claim
that It haa always stood ready to aell
Ita lands to actual settlers at a prtoe of
12. to per acre, and that large areas of
the lands are not suitable for agricul
tural purpose aa ha been claimed by
alleged aettlera. Another theory la that
th company ha In preparation a huge
plan for wholesale disposition of the
limber land before they ar restrained
by an actual government proceeding
that might lead to forfeiture of th
