occupation and use by the authority of any and all property of the state
of whatever kind or character on the Niagara river or within the

vests the authority with and delegates to it the right to exercise any
and every right and power of the state in connection therewith, whether
proprietary or sovereign in character, which the state itself might
exercise, provided that such consent and delegation of power shall not

navigability of the Niagara river or the international rapids section of
the Saint Lawrence river, consistent with the maintenance of such
projects, but on the contrary the projects shall be such as will improve
