Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Indians win first round of legal battle Insects remain threat YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) The Indian Brotherhood of the Northwest Territories claimed a psychological victory Wednesday in the opening skirmish of a legal battle that will have far-reaching effects on economic development of the Northwest Territories. Mr. Justice William Morrow of the Northwest Territories Su- preme Court ruled that he will retain legal control of the case involving an attempt by the In- dian Brotherhool to file a cav- declaration of against square miles of land covered by unsettled treaties. He also directed that the temporary land titles freeze imposed on the Mackenzie Val- ley in early April be continued until least the end of July. "It certainly is a psy- chological victory for the Indian said Brotherhood Pres- ident James Wah-Shee after the case was adjourned until July 9. "This is the first actica we've taken legally with respect to land on a large scale and we're happy with the way things have turned out." A packed public gallery in the stuffy little courtroom in this Territorial capital heard com- plex legal presentations from six lawyers during the two-day hearing, with the main argu- ment centred on Mr. Justice Morrow's jurisdiction. The major contention bv Crown lawyer Ivan Whitehall was that Mr. Justice Morrow bad no jurisdiction to rule on the merits of the Indians' claims. The Crown wanted a ruling on the application to file the caveat with the land titles office while avoiding t n e broader issue of aboriginal rights which forms the basis of the Indians' case. WANTS SUPERIOR COURT Mr. Whitehall argued that the broader issues in the dispute should be heard by a superior federal court. Lawyers for the Indian Broth- erhood said the judge has enough jurisdiction to deal with aboriginal rights claims. They want the case heard in a North- ern court. Both sides expected Mr. Jus- tice Morrow to make a ruling on jurisdiction, but he reserved decision and ordered lawyers to be prepared to present him with all the evidence involved in the case in July. Mr. Justice Morrow said he could not decide about jurisdic- tion until he heard the evidence from both sides. "I have heard argument base on references to abori- ginal rights, Crown title, Hu- son's Bay land, the manner of the handling of patents and land grants, transfers involving the two of which is before me in concrete form as evidence. "There has been very little agreement as to the true nature of these things." The judge's decision brought an immediate protest from Mr. Whitehall.

The IMed States is opposed to any increase because it would devalue the dollar as an international reserve currency. And in the House of Lords Wednesday a British govern- ment minister coaieaded that to increase the official price would bcrofit the rich ooaaries at the expense of the poor.
