employing fifteen or wenty men and that he removed Is not o the credit of some His mill was located back from the river above tbe Island The reasons he gives forhis re moval are as follows When I was in Burlington last winter the only way I could get my hoop poles was to land them at the pay seventyfive cents wharfage and then haul them up to my I was denied the privilege of land ng them at the Island saw mill and the cost was too great to handle them as I was compelled to The owners would not allow me to haul across their land thereby completely shutting me Frame said he had written Kipley
