Whereas, by Executive Order dated December 27, 1875, Section 7, township 15 south, range 2 east, San Bernardino Meridian, California, was with certain other tracts of land withdrawn from the public domain and reserved for the use of the Captain Grande band or Village of Mission Indians; and

Whereas, the Commission appointed under the provisions of the Act of Congress approved January 12, 1891, entitled "An act for the relief of the Mission Indians in the State of California", (U. S. Statutes at Large, vol. 26, page 712) selected for the said Captain Grande band or village of Indians certain tracts of land and intentionally omitted and excluded from such selection the said section 7, township 15 south, range 2 east, and reported that the tracts thus omitted included the lands upon which were found the claims of Jacob Kühner and others; and

Whereas, the report and recommendations of the said Commission were approved by Executive Order dated December 29, 1891, which Order also directed that "All of the lands mentioned in said report are hereby withdrawn from settlement and entry until patents shall have issued for said selected reservations, and until the recommendations of said Commission shall be fully executed, and, by the proclamation of the President of the United States, the lands or any part

Whereas it appears that the said Jacob Kühner can not make the requisite filings on the land occupied by him until it shall have been formally restored to the public domain, and that no good reason appears to exist for the further reservation of the said section for the said

band of Indians: Land in California Now, therefore, I, THEODORE ROOSEVELT, President of the United restored to public do
