EXECUTIVE ORDERS. 479 in letter of the Acting Commissioner of Indian Affairs, dated June 28, 1905, addressed to the Secretary of the Interior. It appears, therefore, that a portion only (9,363.5 acres) of the military reserve is needed for Indian school purposes-the remainder of the reserve (20,479.5) acres) being useless for either military or Indian school purposes. At the suggestion of the Secretary of the Interior and upon the recommendation of the Chief of Staff, U. S. Army, I have the honor to recommend that the entire reservation, except the portion (9,363.5 acres) which has been set aside for the Fort Shaw Indian school, as set forth above, be placed under the control of the Secretary of the Interior, under authority of the act of Congress, approved July 5, 1884 (23 Stats., 103), for disposition as provided therein or as may be otherwise provided by law. Inasmuch as the entire reservation has become useless for military purposes, it is further recommended that the portion of the military reserve which has been set aside for the Fort Shaw Indian school be also placed under the control of the Secretary of the Interior, the same, however, to be held in reserve for Indian school purposes. Very respectfully, ROBERT SHAW OLIVER,-Wr Acting Secretary of War. WHITE HOUSE, July 22, 1905. The recommendations made within by the Acting Secretary of War are approved. The Secretary of the Interior will cause this action to be noted on the records of the General Land Office. T. ROOSEVELT. SANTA CLARA PUEBLO, NEW MEXICO. WHITE HOUSE, July 29, 1905.
