|Sec. 2||Free bridge.|
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That for the purpose of reaching the Ponca and Yankton Sioux Indian reservations, and for carrying supplies thereto, the Secretary of War be, and he is hereby, authorized and directed without unnecessary delay to cause to be reconstructed across the Niobrara River near the village of Niobrara, Nebraska, the Government bridge recently destroyed by floods. Said bridge shall be a substantial wooden or iron bridge, with the necessary approaches, and the sum of seven thousand dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary to reconstruct said bridge, is hereby appropriated out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated.
That no part of the appropriation made by this act shall be paid out of the Treasury until a contract is entered into with responsible parties, with good and sufficient sureties, to be approved by the Secretary of War, for the construction and completion of said bridge, including the approaches, at a cost not exceeding the sum hereby appropriated. Said bridge, when reconstructed, shall be free to all travelers.
That this act shall be in force from and after its passage and approval.
