No. 664

Submitted February 20, 1899

Decided March 18, 1899

173 U.S. 439


Under the clause in the Act of March 3, 1885, c. 341, regarding claims

"on behalf of citizens of the United States on account of depredations committed chargeable against any tribe of Indians by reason of any treaty between such tribe and the United States,"

no claim can be received and considered by the Court of Claims which is presented on behalf of a person who was not a citizen of the United States when the act was passed, but who, a foreigner, had then duly declared his intention to become such citizen, and did subsequently become such.
