Walden v. Knevals, 114 U.S. 373 (1885)

Walden v. Knevals

Submitted April 1, 1885

Decided April 13, 1885

114 U.S. 373


The lands granted by Congress to the State of Kansas for the benefit of the St. Joseph & Denver City Railroad Company by the Act of July 23, 1868, were not open to sale or settlement after the line or route of the road was "definitely fixed," which it was when the map of the route adopted by the company was filed with the Secretary of the Interior and accepted by him. Van Wyck v. Knevals, 106 U. S. 360, affirmed.

This was a bill in equity to compel a conveyance of land. Plaintiff below derived title through the grant of lands made by Congress to the State of Kansas, to aid the St. Joseph & Denver City Railroad Company. Defendant below derived title through a patent from the United States granted after the company had filed its maps with the Secretary of the Interior. Decree for plaintiff, from which the defendant below appealed.
