68. No license shall be granted for longer than twelve months; but every license shall be subject to renewal in accordance with the regulations made from time to time by the Government.
The renewal of a license under the foregoing provisions shall, as regards the lands contemplated by such renewal, be the continuation of the license originally issued, and the renewed license, with respect to such lands, shall be deemed to have existed, without interruption, from the date of the issuing of the original license.
If, in consequence of any incorrectness of survey or other error or cause, a license be found to comprise lands already included in a license of a prior date, the license last granted shall be null and of no effect in so far as it interferes with the one previously issued.
No holder or owner of the license having thus become null and of no effect shall have any recourse whatsoever against the Government for indemnity or compensation by reason of such nullity.
