unless the citizens who have purchased landB by agreement from the Stato of , IH
Utah within the boundaries of the proposed reserve will release His iand to l

and select in lieu thoreof a similar number of acres of public land in another IjH
part of tho State. .
The result therefore rests with the people themselves, It is probable that
Congress will at this session doss a law which will permit the homestcndlng

land ofllco declare said lands to be agricultural lands. This will materially yM
