Excerpt from House Documents, Vol. 133: 61st Congress, 2d Session, 1910-1910 Sir: By direction of the President, I have the honor to transmit herewith the rough draft of a bill authorizing this department to allot lands to children on the Yakima Reservation, to establish town sites there, and to prohibit the sale and introduction of intoxicating liquors within the present boundaries of this reservation. The act of December 21, 1904 (33 Stat. L., authorizing the allotment and disposal of surplus lands on the Yakima Reservation by its language confines allotments to the children then living, and contains no provision for the establishment of town sites on the reservation. Since the previous allotments were made there have been born to the members of this tribe some 200 or 250 children to whom allot ments Should be made prior to the disposal of the surplus lands. The superintendent ln charge of the Indian school on that reserva tion and the chairman of the commission now engaged in classifying the surplus lands under the provisions of the act referred to herein have suggested to the Indian Office the advantage of establishing town sites at certain points on the reservation.
