Supreme Court of the United States

June 9, 1924

1

Perhaps the most impressive prerogative of the United States Supreme Court is its jurisdiction over controversies between states. Eliminating the necessity of diplomacy, and perchance a resort to the final arbitrament of war, the highest judicial tribunal of this country has during this litigation exercised its jurisdiction over this disputed area and frustrated occasion to employ the sword. The following resume of the various opinions, orders, and decrees will in a measure serve to indicate the diligence and perspicacity with which court and counsel and others engaged in determining the controversy have pursued the task to final determination:

PER CURIAM.

78

On consideration of the report of the commissioners, heretofore selected to run, locate, and mark portions of the boundary between the states of Texas and Oklahoma along the south bank of the Red river, showing that they have run, located and marked the portion of such boundary along the Big Bend Area, such report being as follows:

79

Report of the Boundary Commissioners.

80

To the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States:

81

As commissioners designated in the decree of March 12, 1923, in the above entitled cause, we have run, located and marked upon the ground the boundary between the states of Texas and Oklahoma along the Red river in what is known as the Big Bend Area (Area A) in accordance with that decree and the principles announced in the opinion delivered January 15, 1923, and we have the honor to submit the following joint report respecting that part of our work, with field notes and maps.

82

Paragraphs 5, 6 and 7 of the decree follow:

83

'5. The south bank of the river is the waterwashed and relatively permanent elevation or acclivity, commonly called a cut bank, along the southerly side of the river which separates its bed from the adjacent upland, whether valley or hill, and usually serves to confine the waters within the bed and to preserve the course of the river.

84

'6. The boundary between the two states is on and along that bank at the mean level attained by the waters of the river when they reach and wash the bank without overflowing it.

85

'7. The exceptional places where there is no well defined cut bank, but only a gradual incline from the sand bed of the river to the upland, the boundary is a line over such incline conforming to the mean level of the waters when at other places in that vicinity they reach and wash the cut bank without overflowing it.'

86

The foregoing specifications applied in the light of the opinion, admit of, and require the exercise of practical judgment in determining the line intended; but certain fundamentals, such as the following, obviously must form the final basis for the exact location of the line.

87

The boundary line is a gradient of the flowing water in the river. It is located midway between the lower level of the flowing water that just reaches the cut bank, and the higher level of it that just does not overtop the cut bank. The physical top of the cut bank being very uneven in profile, cannot be a datum for locating the boundary line; but a gradient along the bank must be used for that purpose. The highest point on this gradient must not be higher than the lowest acceptable point on the bank in that vicinity. The boundary line has been determined accordingly.

88

We have marked the boundary line by wooden posts called 'witness posts' set along the bank at varying short distances from the boundary, and from each other. A bearing and distance has been taken from each witness post to one or more points on the boundary.

89

Permanent reference monuments are located at varying intervals on the Texas bluff overlooking the river valley. Other permanent reference monuments are located on the Oklahoma bluff, and these overlook the river valley.

90

By accurate surveys the witness posts are joined to each other and to the monuments on the Texas bluff. Similarly the Texas monuments are joined to each other and to the Oklahoma monuments, which in turn, are joined to each other and to the witness posts. Permanent bench marks located near the boundary are also joined to the witness posts and to the reference monuments.

91

All oil wells within three hundred feet of the boundary have been accurately located upon the ground, and the position of each, whether in Texas or in Oklahoma, is stated. From each oil well, a bearing and distance is given to a point on the boundary.

92

The boundary line is shown by the usual symbol and appropriate wording on the accompanying maps, which also show the positions of the witness posts, the oil wells, the reference monuments, the bench marks and other information usually appearing on such maps. These maps are made part of this report and are identified as follows:

93

Map No. 1: Cadastral Map of the Big Bend Area.

94

Map No. 2: Cadastral Map of the oil field region, in two sheets, Nos. 1 and 2.

95

Map No. 3: Topographic Map of the Big Bend Area, in four sheets, Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4, contour interval 2 feet.

96

[NOTE: MATERIAL SET AT THIS POINT IS NOT DISPLAYABLE (GRAPHIC OR TABULAR MATERIAL)]

97

The survey was begun April 16, 1923, and completed February 17, 1924. The location of the boundary, reported herewith, is that position which existed on December 31, 1923.

98

The surveying has been done with painstaking care in accordance with approved modern methods. The results have been subjected to one or more tests to verify their accuracy. The field notes have been reduced to the minimum, consistent with the proper record of the boundary location.

99

The geographic positions are on the standard datum of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey; the datum of the elevations in mean sea level.

100

The field notes of the boundary, location of oil wells, description of reference monuments and witness posts, and tables of azimuths, distances, geographic positions and sea level elevations, follow:

101

Description of Reference Monuments.

223

The reference monuments on the Texas side are made of concrete, moulded in mass at the station, in galvanized iron forms 36 ins. long, 16 ins. upper diameter, 24 ins. base diameter, set 30 ins. in the ground. The center of each monument is marked by a heavy bronze tablet, inscribed as shown above.

224

The monuments on the Oklahoma bluff are correlated with the United States General Land Office public land subdivisional survey. Each one is an iron post, 36 ins. long, 2 ins. diameter, having a bronze cap, the post being placed full length in concrete, in a galvanized iron form 36 ins. long, 8 ins. upper diameter, 14 ins. diameter at the base, set 30 ins. in the ground. These monuments are appropriately marked according to the standard specifications of the General Land Office. They readily identify the position of the monument in the United States rectangular survey system. In each cash the neighboring public land survey corner, to which connections are shown in the following field notes and on the maps, are similarly constructed as a further amplification of the control system, this work having been performed by an engineer detailed by the General Land Office, the field notes of whose operations are, or within convenient time will be, filed with the records of that office.

225

The early Texas survey lines in this vicinity are shown on the maps in accordance with the best available information regarding their true position.

Description of Witness Posts.

281

The witness posts are all rough pine, creosoted. Most of the posts are 5 ft. 6 ins. long, and about 4 ins. in diameter, set 36 ins. in the ground. The initial and terminal witness posts, and those located nearest the Burkburnett and Grandfield toll bridges, also the one set on the extension of the line between ranges 13 and 14 west, are 8 inches in diameter, set 42 inches in the ground. The part of each post above ground is squated, and painted white.

282

The posts are numbered up-stream. The initial post ('0') marks the lower limit of Area A; the terminal post, (No. 183) marks the upper limit of the area. Some of the witness posts have double numbers (for example, No. 34 plus 3). These posts were subsequently set to take the place of other posts carried away by the river while the survey was being made. The numbers are stamped in the tops of the posts; they are also stenciled on the sides, as follows:

283
      Tex.—Okla. Bdy. (on side towards the river);
 
      Witness Post (on side downstream);
 
      U. S. Supreme Court (on side upstream); and,
 
      Number (on side opposite to the river).

322

'I, (Arthur D. Kidder and Arthur A. Stiles, subscribed individually), having been appointed one of the commissioners to run, locate and mark the state line between the states of Oklahoma and Texas in accordance with the partial decree relating to state boundary entered March 12, 1923, and the opinion of this court delivered January 15, 1923, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully and impartially perform the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter, to the best of my abilities, and that I will support the Constitution of the United States. So help me God.'

323

A statement of the time employed and the expense incurred in the performance of the work will be the subject of a later report.

324

Five copies each of the report and maps have been to-day sent by registered mail to the Attorney General of the United States, the Attorney General of Texas and the Attorney General of Oklahoma. We also have filed with the clerk of the court fifty copies of the report and maps for the use of such private interveners as may apply for them. Thirty additional copies of the report and maps have been filed with the clerk for such disposition as the court may direct.

325

The originals of the three maps hereinbefore named are bound with the original report, and appear in the following order: Map No. 1, Map No. 2, Sheets Nos. 1 and 2, and Map No. 3, Sheets Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Report of Medial Line Survey.1 To the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States:

331

In obedience to and in conformity with the order of June 4, 1923 (262 U. S. 505, 43 Sup. Ct. 701, 67 L. Ed. 1094), we have surveyed and run upon the ground and have delineated upon an appropriate map the medial line between the state boundary along the south bank of Red river and the northerly bank thereof for a distance of three miles in the vicinity of the river bed oil wells, and we beg to submit this joint report of that work, with field notes and map.

332

The survey was begun June 29, 1923, and completed February 17, 1924. The location of the medial line, as so established and delineated, conforms to the physical situation existing on December 31, 1923, the date as of which we ran, located and marked the boundary between the states of Texas and Oklahoma along the reveivership oil area as shown and described in our report thereof filed contemporaneously with this report.

333

Besides locating the state boundary along the south bank as shown in the other report, a meander line of the north bank was run in the usual manner, for purposes of accurate platting and to aid in determining the location of the medial line. Temporary markers were placed at the angle points along the north bank.

334

The establishment of the medial line conforms specifically to the provisions of the fifth paragraph of the decree of March 12, 1923 (261 U. S. 345, 43 Sup. Ct. 376, 67 L. Ed. 687), entitled 'Supplement to Partial Decree of June 5, 1922,' which paragraph reads as follows:

335

'5. In the sense intended herein, the medial line of the river is a line drawn midway between the northerly and southerly banks of the river, commonly called cut banks, save that, under a stipulation between the parties affected, to which full effect must be given, this line, in so far as it reaches and is in contact with patented or allotted tracts which are within what is now the bed of the river, shall be regarded and treated as falling no farther north than the southerly line of such tracts as the same were represented by the official survey according to which they were patented or allotted.'

336

To carry out those provisions, the 1875 meander line of section 8, of township 5 south, range 14 west, of the Indian meridian, in Oklahoma, was retraced and re-established, because that line forms the southerly line of patented or allotted tracts, which are within what is now the bed of the river, as such southerly line was represented by the official survey of the United States according to which those tracts were patented or allotted. The meander line of 1875 was retraced and re-established in conformity with the rules stated in the Manual of Instructions for the Survey of the Public Lands of the United States, with markers located in true position.

337

The location of the medial line was then determined by running twenty-three cross-sections of the river, by accurate measurement from bank to bank to determine the exact mid-point positions. These mid-points were then connected by straight and curved lines in a manner designed to produce a true and connected medial line conforming to the directions and curves of the two banks, considered together. Markers were placed in the river bed to show and aid in retracing the line. A number of the markers are immediately on the medial line, but some are only near to it and are in the nature of witness posts, being connected up with the line by course and distance as shown in the field notes.

338

All of these markers are heavy iron pipe, called 'drill stem,' 4 inches in diameter, 20 feet long, driven through the sand into the hard clay and shale of the river bed, leaving 30 inches exposed. The material, outfit and crew for this work were furnished by the receiver in this suit. Bronze tablets were placed in the tops of the pipes, each tablet being marked as indicated upon the map.

339

The map which forms a part of this report, is more specifically identified as Map No. 2 of the boundary survey, and is a cadastral map of the oil field region, in two sheets, Nos. 1 and 2.

340

All oil wells within 300 feet of the medial line have been accurately located and are shown in the field notes and upon the map.

The field notes follow:
