THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE - SUNDAY. JANUARY 3, 1886. 12 CORBIN'S NEW VENICE. A Valuable Grant of Land Under "Water Secured. Report of the Attorney General and State Engineer to the. State Commissioners Improvements at Manhattan Beaeh to Extern! to Shecpsheacl Hay. Special Correspondence of the Engle. Albany. January 1. 1886. Alioiit a yoar ago tlio Manhattan i'.eacli Improvement Company iimdo an apiilic. - n.lioit tioforo tlio E - tnto Land Commissioners for a (jrimt of lan J under tlio water at Hlieepsliead iiay. Tlio application was opposed by residents living In Hie vicinity of tlio bay. After several hearings tlio matter was referred to the Attorney General and State ICmrincer. They have made their roporl iavoriiiK t)l0 (,'rantinK of llio application with some modifications. It iu as follows: 'futiiv I'umwU&Utners of tin: Laibl (Iv'nv; SHIS fill the Till day of October, tlio papers In tlio above application were referred to tlio Attorney Onenil for liis opinion ns to their formal correctness, and on the IStli of October returnod by him with the following - opinion: ori'. - ci; or Tin: Attohnky crnkiuO A i.i; any. October 18. 1SS1.J To the. Ctimwisslmurt o(i;' I.aud Oiih'n: Sins In the matter of the application of tlio "Manhattan Heaeli linprovonieiit Comiiany, limited, for crant of land under waler at Cravesend, ro - fer' - ed to nio for inv opinion. 1 have to say: That your honorable Hoard - oiieluded to consider the application on iN merits, allhoimh the allidavits roouired by ihe rules of your Hoard are not all attached to tiie application. That the affidavit of twenty year' possession required by the rules of your Hoard shows lhat a small part of llio upland is owned by the applicants as tenants in common with olhcrn, hot as the oilier tenants in common do not reinnnstra'e against tho piautlnc of the applioarion, and as the amount of upland thus owned in common is inconsiderable, I do not think this of itself Is of sufficient moment to require a denial of the application. I find that Die papers and maps of the application r.io in oilier rtpocls in ac. - ordaneo with tho rulei and requirements of yonr Hoard. 1, however, call youratleiiiion to ihe remonstraneo filed :i;:ainst tlio cranlinc. of the application and respectfully advise Ihe appointiii; of tho usual oominit'.oo to hear parties, eic, Yours respectfully, T). O'Himkn. Attorney General. On tho said ISth day of October said papers wcro referred lo the State i'.iiejiieer and Surveyor and were returned by him January 5tli with tho following communication: OFFICII OF TIIH STATE F.NIilNHKlt 1 A Nil SUHVKVO'l.

The, examin. - .ti .11 I have made makes 11 quite elear to mv mind that the training of the application would' in no wise obstruct navigation. There are, however, remonstrances Hied opposing the I'raut, and 1 join with Ihe Aliorney General In a Tecomnienda'don that a committee be appoiutod to hoar and determine Ihe issues presented. Kespoetfully. : SWKKT, Siate Engineer and Surveyor. On the Mill of January, lSS.'i. pursuant to ihe recommendation of the foregoing communication and In accordance with tho practice of the Hoard, tho matter was thereupon referred to tho State Kugin - eer ami Attorney General, as a committee to hear panics and report, etc. Tho application is for the graining of acr'.aU lot of land below high water mark of Sheep - head Hay. in the 'I own of Graves - end, Kings t.'ouniv. :!IV acres in extent To the g. - amlng of this applicaliou there wcro liled three separate remonstrances, vi.. : 1. The William A. Kn.'.' - miui estate, by Charles CrooUe, chief engineer, prolcned against tho granting of the application on the ground lhat it would tend to lessen tlio valuo of the properly of faid ostale; that access 10, and navigation of, Sheeps - head l.ev would be greatly impeded thereby: that (lie applicants had not full title to tho uplands adjacent, and that the act of 1S."() gave tho Hoard of Land Commissioners jurisdiction over the haul around and adjacent to Long Island between high and low water marks only, and that as to so much of the proposed grant as extended below low water mark il had 110 Jurisdiction. . Abraham VitnilruM and Motm V. H. Wright, by Andrew C. Ciopsoy, their attornoy, protested against tlio granting of said application on various grounds set forth in their remonstrance Illed with i!io papers herewith, but as these objections have since been withdrawn it is not neodful to further consider them. :l. The Town of Gravesond, by Morris & l'oarsiill, attorneys of said town and tho inhabitants thereof, protested against the granting of the application, on the grounds: (a) That the title 10 the land abovo water sought 10 oe acquired is iu llio Town of Graveseud and not in the Stale, and therefore that tlio Hoard of Land Commissioners had no power to make the grant. (b) That if tliu applicaiiou were granted it would result in great injury to the navigation and fishing in said bay, and would greatly impair the valuo of ;he adjacent properly. ic) That if tho title of tho lands nailer water bo in ;Uo State, and the ronimissioiiers have jurisdiction, pel that they could not grant any laud lying outside md below the "bulkhead lines" established by tho commissioners appointed pursuant to the provisions 3f chapter 670 of Laws of 1MI.0 ; chapter 831 of Laws of IST'J, and chapter Ml of Laws of 1X71. After due notice given, the matter canio on for hearing before your committee on tlio third day of February. 1885, the appearances being as follows: .Mr. James Armstrong, for tho applicant: .Sir. Thomas A. l'earsall and Mr. George 11. I'Tsher, of counsel, for the town: Mr. II. H. Seharniaiin, Mr. Mortimer C. Karl, Mr. Alanson Treadv.ell, for certain residents; Mr. John V. .MoKane. for'i'ownof Graves - ond: Mr. Charles t'rooke, Air. A. II llattersby, for tho Kngeinan estate. The matter was adjourned from timo to lime, tho last hearing being co; uie i.'ith day of .May, 1885. and was Dually submitted and briers Hied August 'J.', IHS'i. I'pon the hearing the llrst objection urged by remonstrant counsel was that the allidavits of the county judge, supervisor and town clerk or of two assessors did not accompany the application according to the rules of your Hoard. It was contended by the applicants that an unreasonable and violent opposition was made to their applicaliou on local grounds, and iliey were therefore unable to got such affidavit, through no fault of their own. On tho other hand, tho remonstrants assorted that no diligent "(Tori had been made to get such affidavits; that County Judge Moore appointed a day for a hearing of applicants and reuioosirants to decide whether ho should give his ai'iidavit or not, and that tho applicants did not appear at that hearing, llowever this may bo, we take it that the object of tho allidavits of' tho local authorities is to inform the Hoard of Land Commissioners 01 the propriety of granting the apiilication when there Is no hearing before it ; but iu cases such as this, whore tho reasons for and against tho granting of the application are fully set forth and urged before tho Hoard or its committee, and the Hoard after such hearing decides for itself as to ihe advisability of tho grant, wo do not think tho omission to obtain such affidavit sutlieiont eauyo for the rejection of tho application: llio procuring of the allldavit bolng a rule of the Hoard and not a statutory requirement, wo think your Hoard have the power to waive a compliance therewith. The remonstrants further objected lo tho granting of the application ou tho ground that all the parties in interest not uniting in the application a grant issued thereon would be a nullity under the provisions of the act of IHoO. which reads that any gram made to any other than tho adjacent upland owner is void. In our opinion, whatever force there may bo in this objection applies lo the grant only and does not alTect the application. The grant, if issuo - J, will inure to the benefit of all the owners of the uplands, those making tho uppliealion as well as tho others, and if the part owners not Joining in the application partake of the bcnelil it would seem to obviate this objection. The remonstrants further objoel that tho Hoard of Land Commissioners has jurisdiction over land only between high and low water marks, Durrounding Long Island Sound, and that it has no power to grunt any laud beyond tho low water mark. It does not appear to us that It was tho intent of tho statute to place such limitation upon tho powers of tho Land Hoard, nur do wo think it can be fairly so construed. The part of the act in question reads, "The powers conferred on the Commls - ilonors of the Land Olllce " ' are horeby ox - tended to lands under water and between high and ow water mark in and adjacent to and surrounding Ixing Island," etc., the purpose of which was, we think. 10 confer jurisdiction upon the said Commissioners to grant as v.eil lauds below as abovo low water mark, whore the grant would not tutorfero with navigation. Yo are strengthened in this opinion from 1111 examination of tho records of grants made by this Hoard and iu predecessors in this vicinity, which show that the Land Hoard has invariably claimed and exercised this right. H is further objected by the remonstrants that the bulkhead cud pier linos established by the Commissioners, under the provision of chapter 070 of tho Laws of lHtiil, chapter 'Ml of tho Laws ot 18T - 'l and chapter 581 of the Laws of I8"f, aro "permanent exterior lines established by law" within the meaning and inienl of that part of tho Law of 1850 which reads: "Hut no grant under this aot shall extend beyond any porinanonl oxterior water lino established by law.'' and that tho Land Bourd has no power 10 issue a patent for so much of tho land applied for as extends beyond such "bulk head and pier linos. Chapter 070 of tho Laws of 18'i'J is entitled "An acl for the appointment of Commissioners to lay out a plan for roads and Btreots iirtho towns of Kings County.'' It provides that the (thou) Supervisors of tlio towns "of Kings County mentioned of which Graveseud is one - ), be appointed Commissioners 10 lay out a plan for streets and roads in said towns." Section ! makes it the duly of said Commissioners to "plan and lay out streets, roads and avouues In the said towns, conforming to the uvenuos and streets and plan of tlio City of Hrooklyn as now terminated at tho city lino, as nearly as may lie piuc - licablo and Judicious. They shall havo a map mado thereof as decided upon by thoni, and shall file tho same, when completed, in the otllco of the clerk of Kings County, and they shall place suitablo monuments to indicate the several localities. Section 5 gives said Commissioners oxclusivo power to lay out streets, avenues and public plucos " ' and all streets or avenues afterward openod shall be made to conform to such permanent lines and tho plans thereof. Chapter 37 of the Laws of 1873, referred to, is entitled "An Act supplemental to au act, entitled 'An net for the appointmont of commissioners to lay out a plau for roads una streets iu the toi'us of Kings County.' " Section 6 ol tho act is as follows: The said commissioners aro hereby authorized and empowered todotorniir.il and designate on the maps to bo Illed by thorn the bulkhead and pier lines which are to form tho termination of the streets and avenues adopted and laid out by them along tlu of the district under their jurisdiction, on t.ravos - end am! Jamaica bavs, nnd they are abo authorized and empowered to lay out and map interior basin and bnlltlioud lines on the swamps uml low lanusol the said districts, and such pier, bulkhead and basin lines shall theroupon become a pari of said dis trict, 111 into manner with too lines 01 o.. avonuos.'1 .. , , , ch.ir. - .?iAf 11.ni.,... - f 1K7I Is entitled, "An act in relation to tiie Town Survey Commissioners of Kings County, and tor tin' preservation ottuo maps and monuments prepared and established uy them." Section 1 provides Unit 'be map provided for by tho rormor act shall tie bleu in mo tho Secretary of State and tho oilieo of Ihe Kogis.er nl llw, ('.iililti, Inv'mwl if til llio olliceottho t lerrf of the County, and a copy In each town clerk s oilieo, as provided by the former act, and provides that said map. among other designations, shall show tlio " bulkhead and pier lines. li'nr nmranl - In till, .il ,li,cl (on of tllO lUmOUStmiltS that the ferogo'.ng acts take away from the Com missioners of the Laud Olllce 1110 power 10 510111 n uiilti - ilth,,, ll,n (it,nlii!iiit. SUVSl 1. Sheepsliead Hay was not included within tho territory in which the Commissioners iieentioned in the. acs cited) wore empowered to erect bulkhead anil pier lines. ) That said CoimiiiHsionorn were authorized to es tablish terminal street bulkhead lines only, nnd not such permanent exterior water Hues as wore con - leniitliitcil tiv tho net nf 1K50. :;. 'I hat ll.o maps havo not been Illed as provided by law'. As to whether Sheonshead Bay was lncludod within the territory in which the Commissioners wero empowered to erect bulkhead and pier lines, and whether such maps wero Illed as roquirod by the act of 1S7 - I, tho evidence is conllicting and unsatisfactory, and for tho purposes of determining tills matter we do not consider it important, bolng clearly of the opinion that tho bulklioad and pier lines mentioned 111 said acts are 1101 anon " permanent oxterior water linos" as was contemplated by tlio act of 18.10. Tlio titles of tlio acts of lSliO, 1872 and 1S7 - I, as well as tho provisions ol such acts refer, it seems to us, to such piers and bulkheads as should determine the termination of the streets and arenuos laid out by the commission, aud could not have b?en Intend od to determine or locate the channol of the bay. They were rather interior than oxterior water linos. 1 ho act of 1851) war. intended, wo tako It, to prohibit the erection 01 any whurt or pier that suouiu eneroacu upon any channel marked out by 11 permanent water line, mtonded to dellue 11 and to prevent. 1110 encroachment upon, or obstruction of, navigable Winers. Nor do we think anything in liie acts mentioned shows an intention to divest the Hoard of Laud Commissioners of the jurisdiction of applica tions lor giants ot land under water, as would bo the case if the remonstrants were right in their con struction, wo have considored the testimony bearing upon tho effect that tho making and improving of the proposed grant would have updn tlio navigation and use of tho bay, aud aro of the opinion that its boundary along the shore of the bay should bo modified to conform to tho heavy bluo 11110 wo nave shown on map A, which accompanied the application. This change in tho plana submitted by the nntilicant will reduco tho area of land undor water asked for .'11.13 acres. Tho grant thus bounded would, wo bellofo, when Improved, aid tho Government idnn for improving this har bor w hich Is now In progress, by limiting tho tidal how, and would incidontnlly Increase its depth w hile leaving sufficient amplitude to the surface of the bav. Vi'e now come to tho consideration of the last and rjerhans most imuortant objection urged to this crant bv tho remonstrants, viz. : That tho title to llio laud under applied for Is in tho towu of Gravesonu and not 111 1110 Slate, anu mat, luureioro, the Hoard of Land ConimisBionors have no authority to make tho grant. This claim is based upon throo patents givou by colonial uovoriiors, as 101 - lows : Tho first, known as tho "Kloft patent,'' was glvon in llil5 by William Kioft, Governor Goneral, and grants unto .Moody, Hubbard, their associates, hoirs, successors and assigns, a certain quantity or parcel of laud, together with all tho havens, harbors, rivers, creeks, woodlands, marshes, nnd all other appurtenances thereunto belonghyx, Ac.,iVc. The sec ond was given 111 lbvo by Francis Lovoiace, uovoruor General, etc. It grants unto tho patentees undor tho former patent of 111 13 and thoir associates, the freeholders and inhabitants ot said town, all tho aforementioned quantity of laud, otc., "together with the inheritance of all Coney Island;" also, tho meadow land and upland not specllled in tho former patent, and confirms tho said former patent. The third patent was givon in 1U8I by Thomas Don - gun, and ij known as the " Dougau paieut;" it Is confirmatory of tho other patents. Tho remonstrants have cited a number of cases to support thoir claim that tho Hoard of Land Commissioners have no jurisdiction over tho land sought to be acquired by this applicaliou, for the reason that tho title to tlio sumo was vested iu tho Town of Gravos - end by these Colonial grants. In all thocasoB cited, however, the towns had exercised long continued acts of ownership and control over the lands in controversy, and this fact seems to havo entered largely into tho Judicial consideration aud determination. For instance, in liobbius vs. Ackerly, 111 X. Y., the Court, .Mr. Justice Miller, delivering the opinion, Buys: "Tho town had claimed this right (of ownership and control) from time Immemorial." In Hand vs. Nowtou, 92 Y. Y., it was found that tho town had assumed the right to oxor - ciso, and had actually exercised, acts of ownership and control over tho lands iu question since the time of tho Colonial grants In HiOO and ltVili. In tho present case It is substantially admitted that tho Towu of Graveseud had never exereised any acts of control over these lands under water until at or about tho time this application was made, when the town authorities leased a part of this laud for tho cultivation of oysters, fce. (Seo ovldonco of John Y. McKane, Supervisor of tho town, in minutes.) In the case of Trustees of Hrookhavon vs. Strong, 00 N. V., page 5ti, it was found that the town had claimod the right of ownership and control over iho water and lands under water iu question, and had successfully maintained that right when questioned or resisted, since tho time of tho grant, aud the learned Chief Justice in his opinion says: "The usage of tho parties ' ' was important to bo considered iu construing tho terms of tho grant.'' It is doubtful, therefore, whether tho cases cited are sudicieutly analogous to this case, ever to bo decisive, oven if their eltect wero the sainu a3 Is claimed by the remonstrants. Applicants also produco a deed, dated in 1877, (and before any of tho oyster leases are clatmod to havo been mado) from tho towu of Graveseud, through Its Commissioners of Common Huuds, directed lo make such grant, by tho veto of tho electors of said town, iu annual mooting assembled, to the New York and Manhattan Heaeh Kail - way Company. It is claimod that this deed conveyed all the right nnd title of tho town in and to those lauds. 'Ihe remonstrants also objected to tho granting of the application upon tho ground that its eifect would be to depreciate tho value of lands opposite it on Sheopshead Hay and to make it less desirable and leas salable for cottagors, etc. While not doubling that the residents and others urging this objeciion are thoroughly honest and candid in the testimony given by them, it yet seems to your commilieo thai their apprelionslons aro not well grounded. If the testimony ot tho engineers Is to be followed, and wo havo felt compelled to place conlldcnco iu what they had to say about tho eltect that this application and intended improvement would havo upon the work now iu progress by tho I nited Status Government for tho hottermcnt of the navigation of Sheepsliead Hay, etc., the filling In, and reclaiming of tueso low, swampy lands by the applicants, would tend rather to enhance than to depreciate tho marketable value of land In their vicinity. Wo are strengthened in this belief from the fact that when tho application on tho oilier bide of Ihe island by thoNow orkand Mauhatiau Heach Itallwny Company for grant of land under waler was under consideration by the Hoard of Land Commissioners tho objection by remonstrants was thou made that tho granting of that application would materially interloro with the importance of Coney Island as a Summur watering placo, depreciate the value of the lands iu tho vicinity and interfere with the oiijoymout of the population ot the cities of Now York and Brooklyn, who would otherwise resort there lor recreation and pleusuro. The objections of renionstrautB ill that caso ueem to us to havo been proven ill advised and groundless, and tho ad - Joining properly, instead of bolng depreciated, to have been enhanced in value. After a personal ex - amiitadon of the applicant's upland ami lands in the vicinity your coininivteo aro of the opinion that this objeciion is not sufficient ground for refusing the application. The application being ouo for " bonetlcial enjoyment," tho lands sought to bo acquired will havo to bo appraiaod under the direction of tho Controller, and tho value paid by ihe applicant before the patent will issue. The above and foregoing is a rathor full statement of the questions urged before your committee on tho hearing, with our opinion as to the weight to bo given to oacii. Wo may, porhaps, properly say in tills connection that the Stato has, so tar as we have examined, always claimed tho right to make grants iu that vicinity; ami thai, in opposition to tlio granting of tho application of tho New York and Manhatlau Heach Ituilway Company for grunt of land under water on the opposite side ot Couoy Island, lilod September "2, 1880, Homo of tho questions now relied upon by remonstrants, such as tho titlo of tho lands being iu tho towu, Ac., were thou urged before a committee of your Hoard by tho ro - moustrants to that application, and that tin., application was granted as prayed for. II uw Hoard mako tho grant asked for hero and tho applicant is not the "adjacent upland owner" within the moaning of tho statute, tho grant will he a nullity aud void. If the grant is made as askod for mid tho State has no title to or Jurisdiction over n,0 laud sought 10 be convoyod the applicants acpiiro nothing and the remonstrants aro iu no wise injured. It will, howover, give to applicants such color of titlo as will onnblo them, In tho proper proceeding, to havo tho matter adjudicated aud the - seiuowhat obscure and voxatious question of tho title to and Jurisdiction of these landB Dually decided by tho courts and tho rights of both applicants and remonstrants fully established nnd protected. Wo, therofore, respectfully advise that tho application bo grunted subject to the modification iinlicnted on the map, 113 mentioned abovo, and a quit claim patont Usuo. All of which is respectfully submittod. 1). O'Hihkn, Attorney General, ii. Swuut. Stato Jiuglnoor and Surveyor. Dated December 31, 1885. EOCKAWAY HKACIl IMl'KOVEMKXTS.
