a westerly direction, and by a tangent which extended would strike the southerly line of Mystic avenue at a point 1,420 feet westerly of the southwest corner of Mystic avenue and Taylor street, to a point 250 feet northeasterly from the south side of Mystic avenue, measured along said tangent; thence northwesterly, by a straight line making an angle of 100 with said tangent, to the line of the northerly side of Mystic avenue at a point marked X.

North side of Mystic River above Boston and Maine Railroad Bridge

- Pier and Bulkhead Lines.

Beginning at the easterly corner of the north abutment of the Boston and Maine Railroad Bridge, the bulkhead and pier-head lines are coin-' cident, and follow the southerly face of said abutment to the southwest corner thereof; thence the westerly face of the said abutment for a distance of 400 feet; thence northwesterly, by a straight line making an angle of 40° with said line and said abutment, a distance of 450 feet; thence northwesterly, by a straight line which prolonged would strike the easterly side of Middlesex Avenue Bridge at a point 290 feet northerly of the end of the draw opening on the north side, a distance of 1,000 feet; thence northwesterly to a point in the westerly side of Middlesex Avenue Bridge 425 feet distant from the southwesterly end of the draw opening in the north side; thence turning westerly and southerly by the arc of a circle of 1,915 feet radius (the center of said circle being in the west face of Middlesex Avenue Bridge prolonged) through about 45° ; thence southwesterly, by a tangent to said arc which prolonged would strike the southerly side of Mystic Avenue prolonged at a point 1,725 feet westerly of the southwest corner of Mystic avenue and Taylor street, to a point 560 feet from its intersection with the south side of Mystic avenue measured in said tangent; thence, by the arc of a circle turning from a southeasterly to a southwesterly direction and tangent to said last tangent line with a radius of 340 feet, to a line tangent thereto and 275 feet distant from and parallel to Mystic avenue at a point marked Y.

Above the points X and Y the lines are coincident, and follow the meanderings of the river, with a variable distance apart as indicated upon IIarbor Line Board Sheet L, to the Medford Street Bridge in the town of Medford.

The State has established no lines on the river above the Boston and Maine Railroad Bridge.

III. MALDEN RIVER.

- Pier and

From the Mouth of the River to the Dam in Malden

Bulkhead Lines.

Beginning at the point Q in the pier-head line on the north side of Mystic River, the pier-head line runs in the arc of a circle of a radius of 600 feet through 69°, turning in a northerly direction ;

thence by a tangent to this arc to an intersection with the bulkhead line on the north side of Mystic River prolonged northwesterly, which point is marked R.

Beginning again at the southeasterly corner of the north abutment of the Boston and Maine Railroad Bridge, the pier and bulkhead lines are coincident, and follow the easterly side of said bridge abutment a distance of 570 feet; thence in a straight line to a point easterly of and 170 feet distant from the easterly rail of the Boston and Maine Railroad, measured at right angles thereto from a point on said rail 1,010 feet north of the south end of the north abutment of said railroad company's bridge; thence runs more easterly in a straight line to a point 460 feet distant from the easterly rail of the Boston and Maine Railroad, measured at right angles thereto from a point on said rail 1,355 feet north of the south end of the north abutment of said railroad company's bridge; thence runs still more easterly to a point 815 feet distant from the easterly rail of the Boston and Maine Railroad, measured at right angles thereto from a point on said rail 1,615 feet north of the south end of the north abutment of said railroad company's bridge, which point is marked S.

The distance between the points R and S is about 400 feet. Above these points the bulkhead lines follow the meanderings of the river, and converge gradually to a distance apart of 150 feet opposite the switch of the Medford branch of the Boston and Maine Railroad; thence, in a distance of about 600 feet, they approach to 100 feet of each other and preserve this distance apart of 100 feet to a point about 200 feet below the second bridge near the rubber works; thence they converge to a distance apart of 50 feet at said bridge.

Above the points R and S, pile structures may be authorized to extend beyond the bulkhead lines to the line of mean low water. The State has established no lines for this river.

(Approved June 20, 1890.]

IV. ISLAND END RIVER.

Pier and Bulkhead Lines.

Beginning at the point 0 in the pier-head line on the north side of Mystic River, the bulkhead line runs northerly in the line of the easterly side of Elm street produced across the Mystic River to its intersection with the bulkhead line at the point marked X on the north side of Mystic River; thence turning easterly by an angle of 10°, measured from a northeasterly to an easterly direction from the line of Elm street produced, it continues straight till it intersects the line of the northeasterly side of Beachem street produced southeasterly at the point marked Y ; thence in a straight line to the point marked Z, which point is 500 feet distant from the northwesterly face of the powder magazine on the opposite side of the river, measured in the line of the northeasterly side of the powder magazine wharf.

Beginning again at the point N in the harbor line on the north side of Mystic River, the bulkhead line runs northwesterly at an angle of 125° with the line M N, measured in a northerly and westerly direction, a distance of about 430 feet; thence turning at an angle of 119°, measured from a southeasterly to a northeasterly direction, it continues northeasterly about 625 feet till it intersects a line drawn parallel to the line Y Z on the opposite side of the river, from a point in the northerly side of the powder magazine wharf 100 feet distant from the westerly face of the powder magazine.

Above the powder magazine wharf, the bulkhead lines follow the meanderings of the river, gradually converging to a distance apart of 309 feet just below the fork of the river; thence the lines preserve a distance apart of 200 feet in the main river up to the solid dike, and in the branch a distance apart of 100 feet up to the mill-dam.

The lines thus described are bulkhead lines between which no solid filling shall be hereafter permitted, but pile wharres may be authorized to extend to the mean low water line. The State has established no lines for this river.
