Alice State Bank v. Houston Pasture Company
Argued January 24, 1918
Decided June 3, 1918
247 U.S. 240
Upon a review by certiorari, the Court confines its discussion to the matter relied on in procuring the writ.
An enclosure bounded on three sides by a fence and on the fourth by deep water (Nueces Bay) will sustain a claim of adverse possession under Rev.Stats., Texas, Art. 5674, if the other elements -- claim under registered deeds, payment of taxes, pasturing of cattle and exclusion of others -- are also present.
227 F. 1015 reversed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
