Whereas, on June 7, 1905, the Secretary of the Interior directed the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to cause to be selected, by the Uintah Allotment Commission, one or more tracts of land, suitable for townsite purposes, in the Uintah Indian Reservation Lands, State of Utah, to the end that the same might be reserved under the provisions of section 2380 of the Revised Statues of the United States;

And whereas, on July 6, 1905, the Acting Commissioner of Indian Affairs reported that said commission had selected, as suitable for townsite purposes and as natural and prospective centers of population, certain described lands which he recommended be reserved under the provisions of said section 2380;

And whereas, on July 7, and 27, 1905, the Department of the Interior approved said selection and recommendation so far as it related to the following described lands in the Uintah land district, Utah, and has requested that they be reserved for townsites to be created under existing statute, to-wit:

Lots four, six, and seven, the southwest quarter of the northeast quarter, the south half of the northwest quarter, the southwest quarter, and the west half of the southeast quarter of section twenty-five, lot two, the southeast quarter of the northeast quarter, and the east half of the southeast quarter of section twenty-six, in township three south of range two west of the Uintah special meridian;

Also the southwest quarter of the southeast quarter of section thirty-six, in township three south of range five west, the north half, and the north half of the south half of section one, the east half of the northeast quarter, and the northeast quarter of the southeast quarter of section two, in township four south of range five west of the Uintah special meridian.

And also the south half of the northeast quarter, the southeast quarter, and the southeast quarter of the southwest quarter of section seven, and the northeast quarter of the northwest quarter of section eighteen, in township three south of range two east of the Uintah special meridian;

Now therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested by sections 2380 and 2381 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, do hereby declare and make known that said lands are hereby reserved as townsites, to be disposed of by the United States under the terms of the statutes applicable thereto.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington this 31st day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and five, and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and thirtieth.
