Struggle for power

Adirondack squatters, rich and poor alike, are to be bodily evicted from state land this fall of 1910 and their camps and dwellings torn down, according to state Forest, Fish and Game Commissioner James S. Whipple, in Albany.

He has instructed his subordinates to tear down all the buildings which will include summer hotels and numerous expensive bungalows of New York millionaires. The rich camp squatters can fight the state and stave off action for years to come and the attorney's fees will not amount to any more than camp rental which is something that the poor squatters can not do. (Note...In the last 100 years, attorneys have been known to raise their rates!)
