Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of American in Congress assembled, That the following sums be, and the same are hereby, appropriated, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to supply deficiencies in the appropriations for the fiscal year nineteen hundred and nine, and for prior years, and for other objects hereinafter stated, namely:
To enable the Secretary of the Interior to employ in the Office of Indian Affairs an expert accountant to state the account of the Northern Arapahoe Indians, in order to determine what sums of money, if any, are still due said Indians from appropriations made in
fulfillment of the treaties with the Northern Cheyennes and Arapahoes ratified by the acts of Congress approved July twenty-fifth, eighteen hundred and sixty-eight (Fifteenth Statutes at Large, page six hundred and fifty-five), and February twenty-eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-seven (Nineteenth Statutes at Large, page two hundred and fifty-four), one thousand five hundred dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary.
That the general deficiency appropriation act of June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and six, so far as the same provides for the payment of item two of the judgment of the Court of Claims of May eighteenth, nineteen hundred and five, in favor of the Eastern Cherokees, shall be so construed as to carry interest on said item two up to such time as the roll of the individual beneficiaries entitled to share in said judgment shall be finally approved by the Court of Claims, and for the payment of said interest a sufficient sum is hereby appropriated.
