Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power in me vested by section twenty-four of the aforesaid act of Congress, do proclaim that there are hereby reserved from entry or settlement and set apart as a Public Reservation, for the use and benefit of the people, all the tracts of land, in the State of Idaho, shown as the Palouse Forest Reserve on the diagram forming a part hereof;

Warning is hereby given to all persons not to make settlement upon settlement.
