|Kiowa and Comanche Indian Agency.
Land restored to public domain for park purposes at Anadarko City, Okla.
Whereas, in the opening of the Kiowa, Comanche, Apache, and Wichita Indian lands in the Territory of Oklahoma, by proclamation dated July 4, 1901, pursuant to section six of the Act of Congress approved June 6, 1900 (31 Stat., 672, 676), the west half of the southeast quarter of the southeast quarter and lot fourteen, of section sixteen in township seven north, of range ten west of the Indian principal meridian, containing thirty eight acres and sixty hundredths of an acre, were reserved for the use of the Kiowa and Comanche Indian Agency;
And whereas, it appears that said land is no longer used or required for use by said Indian agency, and that it adjoins the City of Anadarko, Oklahoma Territory, and is needed by said city for park purposes, the mayor of which city has applied to make entry thereof for said purposes under the act of Congress approved September 30, 1890 (26 Stat., 502).
Now, therefore, I, THEODORE ROOSEVELT, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested by section six of said act of Congress of June 6, 1900, do hereby declare and make known that said land is hereby restored to the public domain, to be disposed of to said city for park purposes under said act of Congress approved September 30, 1890.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this 23rd day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and two and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and twenty sixth.
By the President:
DAVID J. HILL,
Acting Secretary of State.
