FROM NUMBER FIVE.
On last Tuesday night, at a late Lour when all was still, a bunch of Kight Riders visited the home of your humble servant and asked him to write to The Commercial and say that they were only people jklng for what is right, and if JudgfJarris.and his fellow colleagues viiuld withdraw their lake law suits and all injunc tions and allow any man to fish on the lake and sell his fish to whom be pleases that is the West Tennessee ; .Land Co. stop all proceedings in re- gard to controlling te lake and its contents; let the lake and the fish ermen alone; let them run the bust ness as they please; let men go on the lake free and untrameled, to run their business as any other branch of business is run, that they will stack arms. The Captain said they whipped Esq. Wynn, of Lake County, but that they had a cause for it; that they had no ill feeling toward Tiptonville or Lake County; they only wanted what was just and right, and if those in junctions were withdrawn and all law suits stopped, that they would then stop all night riding that they were only out for justice between man and man.

It being the purpose of the West Tennessee Land Co. to enjoin any one infringing on their rights on Reelfoot Lake, and not wishing to be a party to any more litigation over Keelioot taue, tne Keenoot Fish Co. have dissolved partnership and canceled their lease or contract with the West Tennessee Land Co, This releases J. C. Burdick, Walter Pleasant and John Shaw, compris ing the Reelfoot Fish Co. from any connection whatever with the Reel foot Lake suits and relieves them to a ereat extent of the recen trouble. The proposition as it stands can be stated as follows; The West Tennessee Land Co. do not propose to allow anyone to fish for profit in the waters of Reelfoot Lake with out paying a royalty for the privi lege. Against this the Night Riders say that no one can fish for profit on Reelfoot Lake if they do pay the West Tennessee Land Co. or any one else for the privilege. Of course this does not in anyway concern the right to fish for pleasure. Board met in regi night with' Water an( ending MayJ Collections: Water..
