Olin v. Kitzmiller, 259 U.S. 260 (1922)
Olin v. Kitzmiller
Argued April 21, 1922
Decided May 29, 1922
259 U.S. 260
The compact between Washington and Oregon, approved by Congress April 8, 1918, agreeing that all laws and regulations for regulating, protecting or preserving fish in the waters of the Columbia River of which the two states have concurrent jurisdiction shall be made and altered only with the consent of both states, and the
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.
