United States v. Soldana
Argued March 4, 1918
Decided April 15, 1918

In view of restrictions and conditions for the protection of the Indians contained in the Acts of May 1, 1888, c. 213, 25 Stat. 113, and February 12, 1889, c. 134, 25 Stat. 660, the grant made by the latter to the Big Horn Southern Railroad Company of a right of way through the Crow Reservation, whether amounting to a mere easement, a limited fee, or some other limited interest, was not intended to extinguish the title of the Indians in the land comprised within such right of way, which therefore remains "Indian country" within the meaning of the Indian Liquor Act of January 30, 1897, c. 109, 29 Stat. 506.
