corporations are engaged in or intend to engage in putting or placing
logs or timber into any navigable water in this state for the
purpose of rafting or floating such logs or timber to any place
within this state for manufacture or sale and where such logs are to
be rafted or floated a distance of one mile or more, such person,
firm or corporation may have some mark of his or its selection and
authenticated as provided in this chapter impressed in a conspicuous
place on the end or surface of each such log or piece of timber.



4877.  Any log or timber which has any such recorded mark impressed

4878.  Every person, firm, or corporation that neglects to have his

debarred from all benefits arising from the recordings of the mark or
marks, and the vendee or assignee of any such logs or timber is
subject to the same regulations and restrictions.



4879.  It is unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation, except
boom companies which may be required or compelled to catch and hold
logs or timber, to take up or have in their possession, or to sell,
dispose of, or convert or appropriate to their own use, without the
written consent of the owner or his agent, any marked log, timber,
pole, pile, tie, shingle bolt, boom stick, or lumber of value, not
the property of such person, firm or corporation, found on the bank
or banks of, or adrift, or strayed in, any harbor, river, lake, bay,
slough, bayou, creek, pond, stream, ditch or other waters situated
wholly or partly within the boundaries of this state, if the person
or company claiming such mark has had a description and diagram of it
recorded in any of the counties of this state through which such

timber or lumber were marked and that the description and diagram had
been theretofore recorded. Any person violating the provisions of
this section shall be punished by a fine not exceeding six hundred
dollars ($600), or by imprisonment for not more than one year.
