An act concerning the employment of Indian Scouts.

Be it enacted, &c., That so much of the Army appropriation act of twenty-fourth July, eighteen hundred and seventy-six, as limits the number of Indian scouts to three hundred is hereby repealed; and sections ten hundred and ninety-four and eleven hundred and twelve of the Revised Statutes, authorizing the employment of one thousand Indian scouts, are hereby continued in force:

Provided, That a proportionate number of non-commissioned officers may be appointed.
