L. 108, 109), to be entitled to increased compensation by reason of errors in the amount of award previously allowed, or entitled to original awards by reason of errors in the omission of legitimate claimants, the non-Indian claimants, or their successors, as found and reported by the Secretary of the Interior, to be compensated out of said appropriation to be disbursed under the direction of the Secretary of the Interior in the amounts found to be due them, including $1,000 to be paid to Alberto Cruz for his house, as follows:
Within the Pueblo of Taos, $9,733.05; within the Pueblo of San Felipe, $93; in all, $9,826.05: Provided, That no part of the amounts appropriated in this Act in excess of 10 per centum thereof shall be paid or delivered to or received by any agent or attorney on account of services rendered in connection with these claims, and the same shall be unlawful, any contract to the contrary notwithstanding. Any person violating the provisions of this Act shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined in any sum not exceeding $1,000.
