Washington boundary case Involving
tho location of Uie state line near tta

a brief setting forth the alleged new

The court, however, holds that the
question Involved is so simple, and the
facts so apparent, that there is no
ground whatever for Uie contention of
Washington, and it therefore declines
to give further attention to the contro

appeal from yesterday's action, there

other disputed fishing grounds in the

Judgo Brewer advised that Uie two
states should follow Uie plan of the
Southern states bordering on the Mis

Meanwhile Uie court's decision in

have the effect of giving to that state
