Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That jurisdiction is hereby
conferred on the Court of Claims to hear and enter up judgment as if it had original jurisdiction of said case, the claim of the New York Indians, being those Indians who were parties to the treaty of Buffalo Creek, New York, on the fifteenth of January, eighteen hundred and thirty-eight, against the United States, growing out of the alleged unexecuted stipulations of said treaty on the part of the United States. In the hearing and adjudication of said case said court may proceed upon the finding of facts already made, upon a reference of said claim to said court, filed on the eleventh day of January, eighteen hundred and ninety-two, and transmitted to Congress by John Randolph, assistant clerk of said court, on the sixteenth day of January, eighteen hundred and ninety-two. Or said court may, if in its opinion justice so requires, take other testimony as to facts. But in any judgment it may render against the United States, in favor of said claimants, interest shall not be allowed. The statute of limitations shall not be pleaded as a bar to recovery in said case. The Attorney-General is hereby directed to appear in behalf of the United States in said case. And from any judgment rendered by the court, either party may appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States. Said cause shall be advanced on the docket and tried without delay in any court which shall become invested with jurisdiction thereof by the provisions of this act.
