U.S. Supreme Court

Oklahoma v. Texas, 265 U.S. 493 (1924)

Oklahoma v. Texas

No. 15, Original

Order that reports by commissioners respecting running of boundary line,

etc., be filed, and limiting time for objections or exceptions,

entered April 25, 1924

Exceptions filed May 22, 23, 1924

Decided June 9, 1924

265 U.S. 493


1. An application for an oil and gas lease, under the Act of March 4, 1923, which is subject to approval by the Secretary of the Interior and grantable only after the Texas-Oklahoma boundary line and the medial line of Red River shall have been settled by this Court and the property released from the existing receivership, does not confer a present and certain interest entitling the applicant to object to the report of the commissioners herein respecting the survey and location of the boundary. P. 265 U. S. 495.

2. A practical construction of the decree herein ( 261 U. S. 261 U.S. 340) adopted by the commissioners in locating the boundary along the south bank of Red River at the Big Bend Area held reasonable and correct. P. 265 U. S. 496.

3. Where, through gradual accretion occurring since the receiver took possession, the south bank of the river was extended northward, the boundary was properly located along the bank as so altered. P. 265 U. S. 498.

4. A river-bank boundary follows natural accretion to the bank in which an artificial structure was a minor factor. P. 265 U. S. 499.

Reports of commissioners approved.

Upon a hearing of exceptions and protests to the report of the commissioners on their survey, marking, &c., of a part of the boundary between Oklahoma and Texas. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
