Injunction Sought Against Lumber Com

Lumber company's drive ure arriving in
tho boom two miles above here and log
men nre today arranging tho lower
booms preparatory to beginning to sluice
them over the dam. Nono hnvo yet
passed here. About 40 logmen are hero
now. Those owning motor boats nnd
imvlng cottages up the liver early re
quested the superintendent of tho drive
so to uriange their booms that passage
could be had up and down the liver and
were met with a ,refusal. This has caused
much feeling aiid an application was
made to a NeU' Hampshire judge at Con
cord Tuesday 'for temporary Injunction
restraining the company from closing
tho river, and asking that the injunction
be made permanent. It Is an Important
question of mutual rights of navigation
and the local parties . express the senti
ment that the time has come when tho
question should bo definitely settled
whether this, or any other, company has
a right to string booms entirely across, a
navigable stream and so pack their logs
In It as to completely stop passage to all
boats for several weeks. It Is tho in
tention to push this matter to a decision
at whatever cost this year. Two years
ago a similar application was made to
tho courts nnd the Injunction was grant
ed, but the lumber company agreed to
keep tho river open and did so that year,
but new managers come down In charge
each year and as It Is some bother to
keep It open tho new men refuse, thus
making expense locally each year to got
It opened. It Is proposed this year to
settle the question for all time.
