No. 6

Argued January 20, 21, 1910

Decided February 21, 1910

216 U.S. 372


The authority for cutting timber from the public domain under the Act of June 3, 1878, c. 150, 20 Stat. 88, extends only to land valuable for minerals, and not to lands adjacent thereto and not actually valuable for minerals.

Although the purpose of a statute may be defeated by it qualifications, courts, in construing it, are bound by word that are explicit and unmistakable in meaning.

151 F.1d 22 reversed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
