provision in the act in which they accepted the compact, that no license to fish shall be issued to any person not a citizen of the United States unless he has declared his intention to become such, etc., were not intended to prevent either state from narrowing the licensable classes, e.g., by excluding persons who are not citizens. P. 259 U. S. 263.

268 F. 348 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the circuit court of appeals affirming a decree of the district court which dismissed, for want of equity, a bill by which the plaintiff sought to compel the defendant officers of the Oregon to issue him a license to fish in the Columbia River.
