                   Act of May 2, 1876, P.L. 96, No. 61                Cl. 74
                                  AN ACT

     To enlarge the powers heretofore granted by act of assembly to
        individuals to erect a pier in any of the rivers of this
        commonwealth, so far as relates to the fixing of the precise
        location of such pier.

        Section 1.  Location of piers
        In any case where any person or persons have been authorized
     by act of Assembly to build a pier in any of the rivers of this
     state, and to connect the same with the shore by means of sticks
     of timber, it shall be lawful for such person or persons, their
     heirs and assigns, notwithstanding any provision in any of such
     acts of Assembly to the contrary, to so locate such pier, and
     connect the same with the shore by means of sticks of timber, as
     shall best answer their purposes: Provided, that any change in
     the location of such pier shall be limited within a radius of
     one hundred feet in any direction of the original location as
     heretofore fixed by law: Provided also, that such pier in its
     changed location shall not interfere with the navigation of said
     river, nor in any way injure private property: And provided
     further, that the provisions of this act shall not apply to any
     case in which litigation may be now pending: And provided
     further, that no such pier shall be so located and connected
     with the shore in rivers where port wardens are created by law,
     unless by the direction and consent of said port wardens.  1876,
     May 2, P.L. 96, Sec. 1.
