The Fort Hill Indian Reservation in the County of Oneida, in the Territory of Idaho, is not excluded from the limits of the Territory by the Act of March 3, 1863, creating it, and the Treaty of July 3, 1868, with the Eastern Band of Shoshonees and the Bannack Tribe does not necessarily except it from the jurisdiction of the territory.
The lands and railroad of the Utah & Northern Railway Company situated within the limits of the Fort Hill Indian Reservation are subject to territorial taxation, which may be enforced within the exterior boundaries of the reservation by proper process.
The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the court.
