Mr. OLIVER.

There may be some small isolated areas taken up by settlers. There are certain small areas which we propose to take out of reservation. On examination it has been found that they do not meet the conditions considered desirable in a forest reserve, and we think the public interest is best served by withdrawing them. Besides the reserves shown on the main map, there are reserves in the railway belt of British Columbia which are shown on another sheet.
