Provided, That this act shall not be so construed as to apply to any offense committed by one Indian upon the person or property of another Indian, or so as to repeal any former act in relation to robbing the mails or robbing any person of property belonging to the United States:
And provided further, That this act shall not affect or apply to any prosecution now pending, or the prosecution of any offense already committed.
