AN ACT FIXING THE BOUNDARY LINE BETWEEN THE SUBPROVINCES OF AMBURAYAN AND LEPANTO AND THE PROVINCE OF BENGUET, AND ADDING THE TERRITORY COMPRISED IN THE FORMER COMANDANCIA OF KAYAPA TO THE LATTER PROVINCE.

By authority of the United States, be it enacted by the Philippine Commission, that:

SECTION 1. The boundary between the Province of Benguet on the south and the subprovinces of Lepanto and Amburayan on the north shall be a line beginning at the point where the watershed dividing the waters of the Amburayan River and its tributaries on the north from those of several smaller streams on the south flowing in a generally southwesterly direction through the Province of Benguet intersects the present eastern boundary of the Province of La Union, and extending in a generally northeasterly direction medially along the crest of the above-described watershed and of the watershed which divides the waters of the Abra River and its tributaries from the waters of the Agno River and its tributaries to the point where the ridge forming the latter watershed leaves the face of the high mountain known as Mount Data, and thence in a straight line along the side of Mount Data to the point where the ridge or watershed between the Agno River and the streams of Nueva Vizcaya joins Mount Data.

SEC. 2. That portion of the township of Loo lying south, of the boundary thus fixed shall be a barrio of the town of Buguias. The present organization of the township of Loo is hereby abolished, and all offices existing by virtue of the present organization of this township are hereby declared vacant and such offices are abolished. Local civil government shall be provided for the inhabitants of the territory lying to the north of the line described in section one which did not previously belong to the Province of Lepanto-Bontoc by the governor and the provincial board of that province, in accordance with the provisions of Act Numbered Four hundred and eleven.

SEC. 3. The territory formerly included within the comandancia of Kayapa is hereby added to the territory of the Province of Benguet, and the provincial governor of Benguet shall establish a government in the township of Kayapa in accordance with the provisions prescribed for the establishment of local civil governments in the townships of the Province of Benguet by Act Numbered Forty-eight.

SEC. 4. The public good requiring the speedy enactment of this bill, the passage of the same is hereby expedited in accordance with section two of "An Act prescribing the order of procedure by the Commission in the enactment of laws," passed September twenty-sixth, nineteen hundred.

SEC. 5. This Act shall take effect on its passage.

Enacted, May 26, 1903.
