Htate fish commission's order
closing the Willamette slough to sal
mon fishing will stand depends upon
the uotcorne of an action pending
before Judge Kakln In the circuit
court at 8t. Helens
The commission's order was made
on the ground that the slough Is a
part of the Willamette river and was
In force last year as no one object
Some months ago, however, a
suit was brought In the circuit court
of Columbia county to restrain the
commission from enforcing the or
der this season, claiming the slough
Is not a p.".rt of the Willamette river
Judge Eakin granted a temporary
injunction as prayed for pending the
trial of the case, but the trial has
not been held, although Judge Eakin
has set tentative dates for it several
times. He is to he in St. Helens next
week and the hearing may come up
at that time, If the attorney general
and the other attorneys are ready to

The spring fishing season on the
Columbia opened at noon Monday
with a larger number of fishermen
at work than last year. The catches
made by the fishermen in the St.
Helens district have been above the
average, so E I. Uallagh, buyer for
the Columbia Kiver Packers associa

fish were delivered and the Wednes
day delivery amounted to nine tons.
Thursday's delivery was 7 tons. The
fish are small but i ne quality good,
so it is stated. The price pafd for
Chinooks is 12 cent-, which is an in
crease over the price paid last year.
Trolling is not permitted until a f

which, Master Kish Warden Shoe
maker has warned will be strictly
enforced. The Washington fish com
mission ruling forbids trolling at all
times, and reports are current that
the Oregon fish commission will is

Thirty-one trap permits have been
