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 At first the price of the timber ' lands was raised to $8 per acre, and then to $12.50, but ultimately they were withdrawn from sale al together.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 En spite of these terms, the railroad company has held the lands, and has now withdrawn them from sale -She plan being to hold them until lands go to a higher price and the largest possible profit - realized.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.

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.
