No. 1388

Submitted April 2, 1888

Decided April 23, 1888

A claim by the Louisiana to 5 percent of the net proceeds of the sales of the lands of the United States, under § 5 of the Act of February 20, 1811, c. 21, 2 Stat. 641, and a claim by the same state to the proceeds of the sale by the United States of swamp lands growing out of the provisions of the acts of September 28, 1850, c. 84, 9 Stat. 519, and March 2, 1855, c. 147, 10 Stat. 634, are claims against which the United States can set off the amount due to them by the state on matured coupons on bonds known as the Indian Trust bonds, issued by the state.

Under § 1069 of the Revised Statutes, the Court of Claims had no jurisdiction of so much of the claim to the 5 percent fund as was credited to the state on the books of the Treasury Department more than six years before the bringing of the suit

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
