Tho lntorlor department has decided

vacant public lands in a tract of over

drawn from nil entry, with n view to
their examination to determine the ad

supply it with water have their head

the headwaters of Spragtte river, Drews

other streams would all be protected by

Inviowof thoileveloi ment ot Irri

in Northern California, tho creation of
this forest reserve is considered most
essential. Tho lands withdrawn are to

tracts as are found unsuitable for re-
