Washington : Government Printing Office
Whereas, by the Act of July 1, 1898 (30 Stat. 594) inhabitants of the town of Wadsworth, on the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation, Nevada, were authorized to proceed and acquire title to the said townsite under the provisions of Section 2382, Revised Statutes, and by Section 2 of the Act of June 7, 1924 (43 Stat. 596), the Secretary of the Interior was authorized to survey, plat and sell the unpatented lots in the said townsite as provided by Section 2384, Revised Statutes, and
Whereas, only a small percentage of the lots within said townsite have been sold and it appears improbable that there will be further development of this townsite, and
Whereas, the Indian Tribal Council, the Superintendent in charge of the Reservation, and the Commissioner of Indian Affairs have recommended that all of the undisposed of lots in the said townsite be restored to tribal ownership,
Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in the Secretary of the Interior by Sections 3 and 7 of the Act of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat. 984) I hereby find that restoration to tribal ownership of all unsold lots or portions of the townsite of Wadsworth on the Pyramid Lake Reservation, Nevada, will be in the public interest, and the said lots are hereby restored to tribal ownership for the use and benefit of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of Indians of the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation, Nevada, and are added to and made a part of the existing reservation, subject to any existing valid rights and equitable claims of lot occupants.
