A Visitor. Boundary Line in Dispute. The boundary line between Missouri and Iowa wasonce a matter of dispute. lloth states claimed a strip of land comprising 'J.ofisiiiare miles In what Is now the southern tlcrorcouniics in Iowa. The dispute wascarrled to the supreme court ol Ihe fulled Slates In 1SI" and a decision favorable to lowa handed down two year. later. The original act llxlng the lioun- darles of Missouri provided that the north line should run east from a point where the meridan line running north from the mouth of the Kaw river Intersected the parallel of lati tude passing through the rapids of the lies Molne river. That wa known as tho"Indlan bourdaryllnc." It had been surveyed In lulu by John C. Sullivan, for whom It Is believed Sullivan county was named, to tlx tin north limit of the 0agc cession in lis, Sullivan went one hundred mile north from the mouth of the Kaw river and established a corner, but by mistake It varied a little from a true east and west line. However, when Missouri was admitted to the I nlon. In I sal, Sullivan's survey was recog nized as thu "Indian boundary line" and named a the northern limit o' Missouri. An early Missouri legislature order ed a new survey and a new line vva.v run about ten miles north of thu Sul livan Hue. This survey was based on the description In the constitution which called for u parrallel oflatlttids passing through the rapids of tin- Itlver Des Moines." The survey wa. made Joseph H. Drown and wa knowr. a "Hrovvii's I, Inc." For everal years the two state conducted a conversa tional war over the disputed territory. A poll Ileal move to have MIourl oc cupy the strip by force failed. Thetdlsputu went to I lie I lilte l Stales supreme court In 117 ami Ir lIH the court decreed that tin) Kigrt line run hy Sullivan In lIH wa the true northern boundary of Missouri and that It vvathls"lmliau lluundary t.lnu" from the northwest corner ti thu He Moines river to which tbeact of emigre referrid when Missouri was made a Mate.
