June 10, 1898–Almonte Gazette
Residents of the vicinity of Youngville, below Almonte, complain that the Mississippi in that section during the past week has had on its surface a large number of dead fish of all kinds—sucker, pike, pickerel, bass, chub, etc.—the stench from which was almost unbearable during the hot weather.
The fish were killed by dynamite, and a sharp lookout will be kept for the law-breakers who thus wantonly destroy the fishing ground that has always furnished sport for the disciples of Walton. The guilty parties will be severely punished, if possible.
