Spalding v. Chandler

No. 86

Argued December 2, 1895

Decided January 6, 1896

160 U.S. 394


The Indian reservation at Sault Ste. Marie, under the Treaty of June 26. 1820, with the Chippewas, continued until extinguished by the Treaty of August 2, 1855, and upon the extinguishment of the Indian title at that time, the land included in the reservation was made, by § 10 of the Act of September 4, 1841, not subject to preemption.

The plaintiff in error claimed the land in dispute in this controversy under an alleged preemption entry. The claim of the defendant in error rested upon a patent from the United States. The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
