extraordinary action taken lately by the riparian owners of the Banks of the having for in object the prevention of that Beautiful old fishing on the thames bad been of late largely interfered and in some instances it had been threatened to put a Stop to the riparian owners of certain portions of the Banks of the River bad claimed the privilege of not allowing boats to top to front of their grounds to at Tome places a demand for Money was made before Ashing was and there were persons who took the Contemp table Means of interfering with the fishing by throwing stones into the this was a matter which affected not the citizens of London but the inhabitants of the whole of us and it principally had to do with a class of persons who could Nola fiord to go to the expense of proving their rights to fishing in the he thought the first thing to do la the Case was to ask what the opinion of the thames conservancy was As to the when the court came to know that opinion they would be better Able to decide was requisite to be done for the preservation of the rights of the Public to fish in the these were rights which the Public had enjoyed for a great Many he considered it most Unalee for any owners of property on the tanks of the River to endeavour to interfere with those he himself to fish on the thames without the slightest and be had yet to learn that any private individual could legally prevent his doing if the rights of Publio had to be defended in a control Law he they would not shrink from their duty la that to prevent people fishing on the River would Hia most unwise and a most in natural if on rights of fish ing were not protested against at there was no knowing where they would there were several members of the Council prepared to Bear testimony to the question if Neces to More patient Man existed than an and he hoped that All necessary would be continued to be Given him in Tho enjoyment of his Pur moved the thames conservancy Board be requested to inform this court whether they Bave under their consideration the recent attempts of the riparian owners of the tanks of the thames to prevent Angling in that a right enjoyed by the Public for very Many and what
