In this connection a paragraph from
the governor's message to the legis
lature at the beginning of the ses
sion will be of interest. It follows:
(From Governor Catts' Message to
the legislature. April 8. 1919.)
"One of the most important is
sues now confronting the state of
Florida is the question of riparion
rights, overflowed lands rights,
and other kindred legal claims,
based upon these low-lying shore
lands of Florida. In order that
thin question may be settled defi
nitely and fully, once and for all,
and the interests and titles of the
landholders may be protected for
ever, it is absolutely necessary, in
the opinion of the governor, that
suitable laws be passed dealing
with this harrowing and vexed
proposition for all times." St. Au
BY "K. Y."
Manager Arthur Olsen couldn't
real'y be blamed for not appearing on
the field yesterday to see his Chero
Col i team play. His captain. CI. Bond,
evidently was looking for a pitching
staff as he pitched almost everybody
on the team except the mascot, and He
wasn't there. The K & N. "round
house gang" fell on four pitchers for
a total of thirty-two runs and twenty-four
hits, including three home
runs, two triples and numerous
doubles, while as far as Ellis was con
cerned, one run would have wort the
game, for the Chero-Colas only reg
istered one bingle of his delivery.
Mack Kewis' men laid the game on
ice in the first inning when they
scored thirteen runs off Bond, sixteen
men facing him in that frame. He
gave way to Vickery in the second,
who was also unable to stop tho
slaughter, giving up si; hits for a
total of nine runs. As for errors made
in these two innings, they were "too
numerous to mention."
The Railroaders scored in every in
nin? of the game making one in the
third, five in the fourth, one in the
fifth and thre in the sixth. A. Styles,
pitched the third and fourth innings
for the Chero-Colas, while Sperduto
finished the game.
The only hit of the game made by
the Chero-Colas was in the first in
ning when Vickery singled over sec

was thrown out trying out to steal

The Riparian Rights Veto
The recent Florida legislature pass
ed a measure known as the riparian
rights bill. In plain, Vvery-day lan
guage, that bill sought to vest the titl-n
of all lands lying between high and
low water marks in the persons, firms
or corporations who have owned, or
thought they owned this property for
half a century. I-awyers and real es
tate people and practically everybody
else in Florida and elsewhere believed
that the people, firms and municipali
ties possessing lands abutting salt
water had a clear title to them, and
as a result millions of dollars wera
spent in improvements, thousands
were borrowed and loaned on the lands
as security and bond issues mounting
into the millions in the aggregate were
Then two cases were decided by the
Florida supreme court, one known as
the Brickcll case and the other as the
Chris Theisen case frbm Pensacola,
the former being settled during th;
last session of the legislature and the
latter some months previous. In these
cases the high tribunal held that the
two old statutes were conflicting but
that the intent of the lawmakers was
to vest all riparian titles In the State
of Florida. These rulings upset the
records of every abstract office in
Florida seaport towns, credit was seri
ously, injured and hugh bond issues
jeopardized. But the legislature was
in session and the authorities ad
vised that a new statute be drafte-1
and passed. Leading lawyers of Tam
pa. Jacksonville, Miami and Pensacola
put their heads together and a bill,
clearifying the old acts and vesting
the title of waterfront lands in the
parties whom practically everybody
