§ 121. Booms and other obstructions to be opened on notice; penalty
for failure. Every person who shall build any boom or other obstruction
in the waters of any river or stream, for the purpose of stopping or
securing lumber, logs or other timber shall within ten days after the

river or stream. Every person who wilfully obstructs, by booms or
otherwise, the channel of any river or stream so as to hinder or delay
