The provisions in the Act of March 2, 1889, c. 412, 25 Stat. 980, 1005, with regard to honorably discharged Union soldiers and sailors were intended only to give them an equal right with others to acquire a homestead within the territory described by the act, but did not operate to relieve them from the general restriction as to going into the territory imposed upon all persons by the provisions of the act.
