Large Share of Umpqua Forest
Reserve Appropriated Be
fore Opening.
The notice which the United
States Land Department has given
out to the effect that 91,000 acres
of Forest Reserve land will be
thrown open for settlement on De
cember 21, 1908. and subject to en
try, under the public land laws, on
January 20, 1908, is being widely
circulated through our leading
V. B. Sherman, the well-known
timber man of Grants Pass, Ore
gon, is being besieged with numer
ous inquiries, both personal and by
letter, as to the character and value
of these lands.
To keep himself well informed in
regard to all timber movements, Mr.
Sherman secured an abstract show
ing all the vacant government lands
in the tracts supposed to be opened.
It shows that the government has
but something like 8,500 acres to
offer for entry, instead of 91,000
acres. About 82,000 acres of this
tract had been disposed of before
the reserve was created.
It woula appear for once, at least,
that our government is advertising
to open for entry lands that are al
ready patented.
Mr. Sherman is unable to under
stand why the land office offlculn
should send out an advertisement
stating that there are 91.000 acres
In the tract to be thrown open for
entry, when, as he has' been w.M in -J
formed, there are only about 8,600
uuu by far te greater portion
of this, is in all probability worth
less. serve was created by executive or
der July 1, 1908, and had all the
The Umpqua National ForeBt Re
lands within the exterior boundaries
jeen a part of the reserve, would
have contained about 91,-00 acres.
But it must be remembered that the
Umpqua valley was settled many,
many years ago and during the last
60 years, it has been searched, as
with a fine-toothed comb, for lands
worth settling upon. This settle
ment, taken with the fact that every
alternate section was included in the
grant made to the railroad at the
time of its building, has reduced
the area by something over 82,000
acres. This leaves less than 8.500
acres, and It Is probable that the
majority of this was left because of
Its worthlessness.
There can be, thanks to Mr Sher
man, no question as to the advis
ability of the government excluding
these 8500 acres from the National
Forest Reserve. It is a necessity to
have our reserves thoroughly pa
trolled by government fire rangers
to prevent forest fires. To patrol
.. viOO a -ers, principally worth
less lands, scattered over eight
townships would require a small
army ot rangers.
Common sense would tell anyone
who stopped to think of the matter
that, If there were any c nslderable
areas of timber or fruit land avail
able for entry, the tens of thous
ands of inhabitants of (he I'mpqua
Valley would quickly locate on them.
Inasmuch, however, as there is
really such a small amount of land
to be opened for entry and this land
of so little probable value, It would
really be doing an Injustice to the
public to allow to be published
broadcast statements to the effect
that 91,000 acres of land will be
thrown open for entry, when but
8500 acres are to be opened.
On account of the great publicity
given the notice in the newspapers.
North, South, East and West, It )s
believed, and the belief Is founded
upon the large number of Inq uiries
received, that a large number of per
sons throughout the L'nlted States
have probably left their homes,
ijiven up their positions, and sold
their little all, to go and se. ure a
home In the free lands offered them
by the government in the I'mpqua
Forest Reserve.
No doubt, these combined losses
will run up Into the hundreds of
thousands of dollars. These losses
as a rule, will be bourne by citizens
of the United States whose circum
stances compel them to make a liv
ing for themselves and their famll
e by their bands, but who are anx
ious to better their condition.
It would appear that each and
everyone of them would have reason
to compialn in that the United
States government allows to be cir
culated, through the leading news
papers of the country, statements
which are misleading. The adver
tisement referred to creates the Im
pression that the land, which will
be thrown open to entry, la In the
solid block of about 91,000 acres In
stead ot only a few forties and
eighties, and on occassional quarter
section, scattered through eight
townships unoccupied because of
their probable worthiessness.
If these lands were valuable, why
were they not filed upon during all
the long years previous to last July,
at which time this reserve was
Does it not appear, in this in
stance, that the government Is do
ing not only an Injustice to the
thousands ot persons who will be
disappointed when they learn the
character and Buiall amount ot land
which is to be thrown open, but an
injustice to the state of Oregon?
Will not these hordes ot people when
they come here and see the lands,
surely be disgusted aud say: "Let
us return from whence we came,"
thus giving this fair state a black
eye from which she will be a long
time recovering.
