a matter of dispute. Chief Justice
Miller having act aside ine order ot
the conrt made April 10, 1893, con
firming the .report oi me commissioners.
There is an interesting history con
nected with this cause celebrc. L'n-
ler an order of the court made more
than a year ago, three commission
ers were appointed to determine the
disputed boundary ana o report.
The state of Iowa claimed that the
boundary line was the exact center
of the river from shore to shore.
while the Illinois authorities insisted
that the proocr boundary was the
center of the navigable channel. The
ease crew out of a init for taxes
brought by the county of Hancock,
Illinois, against tliecompany owning
and operating the bridge across the
Mississippi river between Hamilton
and Keokuk. The Illinois authori
ties claimed taxes upon the bridge as
tar as the center 01 tho channel,
which at that point is located near
the Iowa side of the river. The Iowa
authorities claimed payment to the
center of the river as measured iroiu
shore to shore.

Wempcr ami Carpenter made an ex
amination and submitted their re
port to the court. It was approved.
and afterward it was discovered by
the attorney general of Illinois that
thc boundary had been lixed in thc
center of the river, as measured from
shore to shore, instead of in the cen
ter of thc navigable channel, as the
supreme court's decision hail di
rected. The ltoundary had been
placed just where thc Iowa authori
ties wanted it, instead of where the
Illinois authorities had contended it
should be. This fact bad been seem
ingly overlooked by tho court at the
time it approved thc repnrt of the
commissioners, the presumption
of thc court being, of course,
that the commissioners had acted
in good faith, and had carried
out the court's directions. Th ai-
proval of tho report was a mere for
