A too intricate system of cost charges

thcrn control of the rights to fish in

I know of no other place in the world
where such a condition exists. It is
hard to make a inainlander believe
that a landowner can prevent aiivone
from fishing from various points on
this rock hound coast or in the shoals
off these points, if he so elects.
Within the past few days. Kenwe

bought the fishing rights in the waters
