That before any of the lands are disposed of the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to reserve from said lands such tracts for town-site purposes as, in his opinion, may be required for future public interests, and he may cause the same to be surveyed into lots and blocks and disposed of under the provisions of section twenty-three hundred and eighty-one of the Revised Statutes of the United States.
That the Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized to make an allotment under the general allotment laws of the United States to each child of Indian parentage on the Yakima Reservation whose father or mother is or was a duly enrolled member of the tribe
on that reservation, and who has not heretofore received an allotment; and there is hereby appropriated, out of any money in the Treasury of the United States not otherwise appropriated, the sum of thirty thousand dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary, to enable the Secretary of the Interior to make the necessary surveys of such town sites and the sale of lots therein as may be established on the Yakima Reservation under the provisions of this act and the allotments to be made to the unallotted children there, as provided for herein; the cost of making these allotments to be reimbursed to the United States out of the proceeds derived from the sale of surplus lands within the reservation: Provided, That the Secretary of the Interior shall cause to be set apart and reserved for schools, park, and other public purposes not more than ten acres out of each body of lands which may be reserved for town-site purposes under the provisions of this act: And provided further, That after paying the expenses connected with the survey and sale of the lots within such town site as may be established, the Secretary of the Interior shall cause not more than twenty per centum of the net proceeds arising from the sale of lots within such town sites to be set apart and expended under his direction in the construction of schoolhouses or other public buildings or improvements in the town site in which such lots are located, and that the remainder of the proceeds from the sale of the lots shall be deposited in the Treasury of the United States and become a part of the fund belonging to the Yakima Indians arising from the disposal of the surplus lands on that reservation.
That the lands allotted, those retained or reserved, and the surplus lands sold or otherwise disposed of shall be subject for a period of twenty-five years to all the laws of the United States prohibiting the introduction of intoxicants into the Indian country.
