FISH LEGISLATION HAS RIGHT-OF-WAY "I shall give the fisheries bill which I have Introduced my first attention , when 1 return to Washington" said | Delegate James Wlckersham last ev j ening. "because I deem it is the moet | important measure for Alaska Just now." The bill, ho said, was for the pro tection of the fish resources of the Territory and provided regulations governing the Industry, but did not, he said, provide for the establishment of government salmon hatchories. He said that the government hatcheries were handled through the bureau of fisheries and it was not necessary to provide for therit in the bill. Delegate Wlckersham says that there are two bills pending for the creation of the Alaska Development board, one of which was prepared by Secretary of the Interior Franklin K. Lane and introduced by Senator Cham berlain, of Oregon, and the other pre pared and introduced by himself. His own bill he said was prepared very carefully and that ho had gone consid erably Into the subject working out a great deal of the necessary detail on the measure in order that it should be a practical working law. Both bills he said had the approval of Sec retary Lane but said the Delegate, "I don't think Chairman Houston, of tho House Committee of Territories wants the bill to pass at this time." Secretary Lane, the Delegate says, has approved his bill invalidating the mining law passed at the first session of the Territorial Legislature and that the bill had been favorably reported j from the committee, but now that tho next session of tho Legislature was so near, that he would not push the matter for the reason that the Legisla ture can correct all that is wrong with the law. - - Villi , Speaking of things nearer home, Delegate Wlckersham said that he had Introduced a bill appropriating an ad ditional $450,000 for the Capitol build ing at Juneau, which, added to the former appropriation,, would amount to $650,000, but that thero would be nc chance of getting this bill passed | new. because there would be no pub-! lie building bills passed before the De- j cember session, when such bills would j all be passed at the same time. The Gastineau channel bridge will1 be built by the government. Delegate Wlckersham says. If anybody wants it built. It will be an easy matter to get an appropriation for the building of the bridge if the people ask for it, he said. "I Introduced a bill provid ing for the sale of tide lands here In Juneau, the funds accruing from such sale to be devoted to the building of the bridge, tyit I discovered that there was a decided opposition to this meas ure and did not urge action on It." I The Judge will speak at Treadwell this evening and leave for Sitka on dress the people here Monday night. A large part of yesterday was spent on Douglas Island, and he will speak at Douglas Saturday night. / . SERVICE AND THE PUBLIC.
