Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized, in his discretion, to extend for a period of one year the time for the payment of any annual installment due, or hereafter to become due, of the purchase price for lands sold under the Act of Congress approved February 14, 1913 (Thirty-seventh Statutes, page 675), entitled "An Act to authorize the sale and disposition of surplus or unallotted lands of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the States of North and South Dakota, and for other purposes," and any payment so extended may annually thereafter be extended for a period of one year in the same manner: Provided, That the last payment and all other payments must be made within a period not exceeding one year after the last payment becomes due by the terms of the Act under which the entry was made: Provided further, That any and all payments must be made when due unless the entryman applies for an extension and pays interest for one year in advance at 5 per centum per annum upon the amount due, as herein provided, and patent shall be withheld until full and final payment of the purchase price is made in accordance with the provisions hereof: And provided further, That any entryman who has
resided upon and cultivated the land embraced in his entry for the period of time required by law in order to make commutation proof, may make proof, and if the same is approved, further residence and cultivation will not be required: And provided further, That failure to make any payment that may be due, unless the same be extended, or to make any extended payment at or before the time to which such payment has been extended, as herein provided, shall forfeit the entry and the same shall be canceled and any and all payments theretofore made shall be forfeited.
That the Secretary of the Interior is also hereby authorized, in his discretion, to extend for a period of one year, the time for the payment of any annual installment hereafter to become due of the purchase price of lands in the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in South Dakota and the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the States of North Dakota and South Dakota, sold at public sale under the Act of Congress approved May 29, 1908 (Thirty-fifth Statutes, page 460), under the same terms and on the same conditions as provided in section 1 of this Act.
