U.S. Supreme Court

Rice v. Sioux City & St. Paul R. Co., 110 U.S. 695 (1884)

Rice v. Sioux City and St. Paul Railroad Company

Submitted January 14, 1884

Decided March 3, 1884

110 U.S. 695


Claimants against the government under legislative grants of public land must show a clear title, as gifts of public domain are never to be presumed.

The grant of swamp lands to each of the states of the Union by the Act of September 28, 1850, 9 Stat. 510, did not confer a similar grant upon the territories, and the subsequent admission of a territory as a state under an act which provided that all laws of the United States not locally inapplicable should have the same force and effect within that state as in other states of the Union did not work a grant of swamp lands under the act of 1850.
