Gring v. Ives, 222 U.S. 365 (1912)

Gring v. Ives

No. 115

Submitted December 18, 1911

Decided January 9, 1912

222 U.S. 365


The Act of March 3, 1899, c. 425, § 10, 30 Stat. 1121, 1151, authorizing establishment of harbor lines, was not intended, and did not operate, to paralyze all state power concerning structures of every character in navigable waters within their borders, or to automatically destroy property rights previously acquired under sanction of state authority. Cummings v. Chicago, 188 U. S. 410.

In this case, the federal question relied upon is so absolutely without merit, and the grounds are so frivolous, as not to afford a basis for exercise of jurisdiction, and the writ of error is dismissed.

Writ of error to review 150 N.C. 137 dismissed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
