—Some parties at Wampum have arranged
an ingenious and successful way of catching
fish. It is a boat in which the seats are so
arranged that the boat can be dipped, the
water almost coming over the side. Just
after da skin the eveniug two men take
their places in the boat and row up one
side of Heaver river for a distance of about
a mile, keeping the dipped side of the
boat as near as possible to the bank. This
cotriranee can only be used when the river
iB on the rise, as the fish then congregate
along the shore. As the boat passes along
the shore the fish become frightened and
jump into the boat After going up,the boat
is rowed to the other side where the same
tactics are pursued. No light is used, and
the darker the night the better. The part
ies using this system have been at it for some
time, and every night come in with a large
catch. The fish are unable to escape owing
to the bottom of the boat nearly touching
the bed of the river, thus forcing them to
jump directly into the boat. There is no
law coverihg this ingenious method of
poaching, but it is probable that the Fish
Warden will find some method of stopping
