LANCASHIRE ENCROACHMENT. Sir,—Fishermen plying for sea fish in the Estuary of the Dee are much indebted to you for the timely warning you I gave them to be prepared to defend their rights and privileges against the intrusion of the Lancashire Sea Fisheries Committee, who seek to obtain for themselves unlimited control of our fishing ground. Much has been said and written on this (so-called) amalgamation of fisheries, and hitherto our local fishery authorities have been well-advised in staunchly refusing to allow Lancashire to plant their Sovereign flag in the Estuary of the Dee.—I thought after the con- ference held in Chester Castle last May where the representatives of the Lancashire committee were so clearly made aware of the feeling of all concerned in the estuary of the Dee, that they in common courtesy would have allowed the Conservators of the Dee to mind their own business. But in doing so I fear I have given them credit for too much honesty of purpose, for in the face of the opposition which has been continuously waged against their intrusion they now give notice that they intend to apply to the Board of Trade for an order to complete their amalgamation scheme. This, of course, would mean the handing over of the management and control of the sea fishing in the estuary of the Dee (a most productive fishing ground having an area of over fifty square miles, and worth at least from 29,000 to £ 10,000 a year) into the hands of a rival county, whose fishing interests are directly at variance with the welfare of our local fishermen.- Yours, &c., OBSERVER. ■
