WITH HOOK AND LINE.
The yacht Astoria, the official boat
of Master Flab Warden Clanton.
"ateamod" Into the local water of the
WUlamotte River on Saturday for an
official call on the local fUhermen.
Clanton came here to give notice that
the Clackama River waa closed
closed oven to fishing with hook and
. Local flehermen have been fishing
with hook and line on the supposition
that the river waa open to that mode
of angling. Dut Clanton aald no and
that he would be compelled to enforce
the law and did not want to prosecute
any of hla friend. i
Local fishermen have been relying
on the fact that the late legislature
passed a law permitting fishing with
hook and line at any point not within
son feet of the Falla. But Mr. Clanton
7 aaya that unless. an emergency clause
la enacted with the law it ia o aaya
before a new law goes Into effect. A
there waa no aeemlng emergency In
thl matter aald clauae waa not at
tached to the bill and hence the law
waa enacted without auch clause and
It thua takea 90 daya for the law to go
Into effect. With that Interpretation i
of the matter It la yet eome time be
fore the law la In force and the Master
Warden won't permit further fishing
until It la in force. .
Local fishermen who have been en
joying the aport for eeveral daya will
be greatly disappointed In the turn
things have taken. No effort waa made
to attach the emergency clause at the
passage of the, bill from the Mot that
hen auch Clauae ia auaonea w. un.
not subject to the referendum and, the
leglalaturo la chary of paaalng lawa
with that clause attached unlesa there
la a real emergency. The frienda of
the local , flshormen did not dare to
take those atepg leat It might Jeopard

OUR HOME FISHERMEN
HOLD MEETING SATURDAY TO
CONSIDER ACTION OF BOARD
IN CLOSING WILLAMETTE.
The WlllametteRlver Fishermen's
Protective Association met In the of
fice of Justice Samson Saturday morn
ing for the transaction of business and
the consideration of the question of
the closing of the Willamette River.
By the terma of the law passed In
1901 the question of the fishing season
was left to a -board of fish commis
sioners who were given the power to
make closed and open season at the
discretion of its members on any
stream where the salmon run. This
closing waa to be made In the interest
of the spawning of salmon and had
reference to a protection which should
aid In the propagation of this most ex-j
In 190SMhe legislature paased a law
providing for a closed season, making
this closed season a hard and laat en
actment. But ao far the board haa
refused to vacate Its powers, and aa
there haa not ao far been a test, case
carried to the Supreme Court this
board asaumea to aay that thla recent
law U without .force. In refusing to
abdicate. For an excuse the claim Is
set up that the recent enactment con
flicts with conditions on the Columbia
River and this conflict. If permitted
to have away, would anger the men on
that river and thus open up a contro
versy that might Jeopardize the whole
The meeting Saturday was to dis
cuss and perhapa take action looking
to the institution of a suit that should
determine the powera of the board and
of the legislature. But after an open
discussion It waa deemed wise not to
start anything Just now, but await de
velopment. It seema that the aalmon are not In
thla river yet, although It la later than
uaual. It aeema that for eome reason
oerhapa the river being low and
cold they have not begun to run In
any considerable number but are bow
lying in the Columbia Slough, which ia
in reality the lower. Willamette, and
are not coming up here. If local fish
ermen mad a fight to have the river
opened In accordance with the atatute
enacted in 1906 Instead of permitting
It to be closed aa per the board's ac
tion, then It would open up the Lower
Willamette, where the fish are now
lying, and the fishermen below would
get- them while the local men couia
not get them a they are not here to
get. And to fit up to go to the Slough
to fish would coat local men all they
woold get out of their whole catch.
A a result the local fishermen de
cided at the Saturday meeting to He
