Mr. OLIVER.

We have not yet decided upon any regulation regarding , grazing within these park reserves. Sheep at present have no right to graze within the area covered by this Bill. Under the law certain portions of the pTairie country are set apart as sheep grazing areas, and sheep are ailowed to graze on public lands within these areas, but none of them are in the Rocky Mountain district. Any sheep grazing in the mountain or foothills are outside the protection of the law.
