The real proprietor, in the eyes of the I'nited States authorities, is Uncle Sam. The discovery was made during researches incident to the negotiations for the quarter of a million dollar loan authorized for the Board of Control by the last general assembly. In all probability a special bill will be introduced in congress to quiet the staee's title. The flaw occurred because, many ice- years ago, proprietors who had en )or. tered the front land on what is now on- Mlonticello plantation did not exercise adi- their legal option upon the land im be- mediately in the rear of the riparian land.
