FISH TRAP LEASES
ALL LI0EN8HS IS8UBD SINCE lift*
MAT BE WORTHLESS
Provincial   Fisheries Act  Has  Never
Been Brought Into Force by Proclamation Although Bxpllclt
Provision Bays It Shall.
A Victoria despatch of August 6th,
���ats, oat of tbe seemingly innocent and
uninteresting appliostinn for an injunc
ti n in tbe civil suit of Capital City Packing Company vs. Anglo B. C Packing
Company, disclosures have come which
indicate that not only are all the foreshore and trap fishing leases issued by
the chief commissioner of lands and works
scarce worth tbe paper they are written
upon, but tbe tame applies to all land,
timber and other leasts executed since
1899���involving many millions of money
and concerning prominent capitalists in
all parts nf this province, eastern Canada,
the United States and England.
Aa briefly stated previously, ths injunction application arose in connection
with a controversy as to the eiclusive
right in site and fishing privileges claimed
by the Capital City Company as prior
holders of a lease for the foreshore where
their traps are ait utte and their cannery
erected in Renfrew district. They are
suing to compel the removal of the defendant company's canneries, traps and
buildings, which occupy identical terri
tory, and fnr damages, an accounting of
fish taken up to date, and payment therefor. The injunction was desired to res
tram the further taking nf salmon in the
defendants' traps pending trial of ths
action. It was argued by R T. E liott
before Mr. Justice Duff, opposed by E.
P. Davis, K. C , and A. P. Luxton, K C ,
and denied by hit lordship in a very brief
but positive decision. His lordship directed attention during the hearing of
argument to the faot that the conditions
of the lease issued by the chief commissioner could only he justified (insofar ai
they deal with the fishing snd conditions
attaching thereto) under the Provincial
Fisheries Act mid this bad never been
brought into effect by proclamation, although containing explicit provision that
it is not to have the force of the law unites ro given existence.
Th t leases, it is olaimed by the issuing
department, are under section 41 of ths
Land Act, but as they oontain provisions
as to accounting for fish taken, regulations as to fishing, and an obligation upon
the leases for payment of a royalty of f 1
per thousand fish, and the land act Is
foreign to all these, it is held to be impossible of application. The ruling of
Mr. Justice Duff is that no exclusive right
can be given by the province to fish in
tbe sea or to territory beyond the low
water mark. But it is further held that
Mr Elliott has been unable to show, and
his lordship remarks significantly that he
is of opinion that I hers is no law existent
to be cited, that the chief commissioner
was vested with any due authority for issuance of the leases in the first place.
The point at issue is that during the
brief regime of Joseph Martin, m 1899,
legislation was placed upon the statute
book removing from th* chief commissioner the authority vested in him prior
to that time to execute leases of crown
lend, timber, etc. The execution of such
leases was instead placed in the hands of
the lieutenant-governor-in-council, and
the documents to obtain effect and valid
ity required to have upon them the sesl
of the province. Despite this legislation
and the faot that abrogating law has never
since been passed, the chief commissioner
has continued to issue leasts in tht same

THROWINO FI8H OVERBOARD.
The canneries on the lower Fraier re
port score fith than they can poisibl)
handle. The limit is being enlorced and.
as some of the boats ire catching from
Dine to twelve hundred a piee., it is leav
lag the fishermen with a large surplus,
which they are selling at any price that
they can get,. One man reported that h
had salted 5,000 sockeyes that he haii
bought at half a cent apiece. The boats
tt the mouth nf the Fraser are throwing
fish overboard simply because they oould
n.t float if they took more in the boat.
Very few humpbacks are reported bu
some shtd are running with the salmon,
which is a very unusual thing.
Vancouver's Population.
Vancouver's population, at a conserva
tire estimate, is placed at 45,000 From
recent data in the possession of the Hen
derson Directory Company, the above
figure is considered a safe calculation of
th. number of people in that city, James
H-uilersnii, president of the directory
c unpany stated that the city officials wen
abundantly justified at estimating the
population at 45,000. lie said that th-
progress of the city was being steadily
niaiiitiim.il, and that the half centuri
mirk should be reached before the end i4
In- year. The city has grown at leas'
4.000 since the commencement of th.
year.
