Accretion – Title to New Land – Encroachment of Watercourse Upon Lands Beyond – D’s lands were bounded on the east by a river and on the west by the land of P. By erosion the river slowly shifted until all of D’s tract was washed away as well as part of P’s holding. The river then slowly receded and the land of P was built up as was also new land east of the former boundary of P and D. P brings an action to quiet title for the land newly formed. Held, title to the land in dispute rested in P. Yearsley v. Gipple, (Nebr., igig) 175 N. W. 641.
