president's letter to the secretary,
dated today, is as follows:
"In view of the reports made by
the geological survey on the charac

the orders dated July 26, October 10,
13 and 15, 1906, withdrawing certain
lands from coal entry, and issued un

modify these orders in the following
particulars: All land now reported
by the geological survey to contain
no usable coal shall be immediately
released, also, -
"All lands which contain workable
beds of coal and concerning which
the geological survey has sufficient
information available to enable you
to properly classify such lands and
promulgate rules and regulations for
"Hereafter other lands shall be
similarly opened to entry as rapidly
as the geological survey can make
proper examination thereof and re
port to you.
"I am advised that under this or
der about twenty-eight million acres
of coal land will immediately be
opened to entry."

as follows in the Albuquerque Even
