Whereas, the Uintah Forest Reserve, in the State of Utah, was established
by proclama- 
tion dated February twenty-second, eighteen hunderd and ninety-seven, under
and by virtue 
of 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", which 
provides, "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 estab- 
lishment of such reservations and the limits thereof"; 
And whereas, it is provided by the act of Congress, approved March third,
nineteen hun- 
dred and five, entitled, "An act making appropriations for the current
and contingent expen- 
ses of the Indian Department and for fulfilling treaty stipulations with
various Indian tribes 
for the fiscal year ending June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and six, and
for other purposes", 
that "before the opening of the Uintah Indian Reservation the President
is hereby author- 
ized to set apart and reserve as an addition to the Uintah Forest Reserve,
subject to the laws, 
rules, and regulations governing forest reserves, and subject to the mineral
rights granted by 
the act of Congress of May twenty-seventh, nineteen hundred and two, such
portion of the 
lands within the Uintah Indian Reservation as he considers necessary";

lands in the 
Uintah Indian Reservation be set apart and reserved as an addition to the
Uintah Forest 
Reserve; 
Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States, by
virtue of the 
power in me vested by the aforesaid act of Congress, approved March third,
nineteen hun- 
dred and five, do hereby make known and proclaim that certain lands in the
