Syllabus

The Act of March 3, 1887, 24 Stat. 505, c. 359, providing for the bringing of suits against the government, known as the Tucker act, did not repeal so much of § 1069 of the Revised Statutes as provides

"that the claims of married women first accrued during marriage, of persons under the age of twenty-one years first accrued during minority, and of idiots, lunatics, insane persons and persons beyond the seas at the time the claim accrued, entitled to the claim, shall not be barred if the petition be filed in the court or transmitted as aforesaid, within three years after the disability has ceased; but no other disability than those enumerated shall prevent any claim from being barred, nor shall any of the said disabilities operate cumulatively."
