BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

A PROCLAMATION.

Lolo Forest Reserve, Mont.

Preamble.

Vol. 26, p. 1103.

Forest reserve, Montana.

Post, p. 3260.

WHEREAS, the public lands in the State of Montana, which are hereinafter indicated, are in part covered with timber, and it appears that the public good would be promoted by setting apart said lands as a public reservation;

And whereas, it is provided by section twenty-four of the Act of Congress, approved March third, eighteen hundred and ninety-one, entitled, “An act to repeal timber-culture laws, and for other purposes," “ That the President of the United States may, from time to time, set apart and reserve, in any State or Territory having public land bearing forests, in any part of the public lands wholly or in part covered with timber or undergrowth, whether of commercial value or not, as public reservations, and the President shall, by public proclamation, declare the establishment of such reservations and the limits thereof";

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 Montana, shown as the Lolo Forest Reserve on the diagram forming a part hereof.

This proclamation will not take effect upon any lands withdrawn or reserved, at this date, from settlement, entry, or other appropriation, for any purpose other than forest uses, or which may be covered by any prior valid claim, so long as the withdrawal, reservation, or claim exists.

Warning is hereby given to all persons not to make settlement upon the lands reserved by this proclamation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixt. Done at the City of Washington this 20th day of September, in

the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and [SEAL.] six, and of the Independence of the United Sates the one hundred and thirty-first.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT By the President:

ALVEY A. ADEE

Acting Secretary of State.
