Drug Trial Ends To Stop S VANCOUVER (CP) Fisheries Minister Jack Davis says Ottawa has accepted a challenge by Premier W. A. C. Bennett of British Columbia to stop the flooding of the Skagit Vail lion while questions are being raised in Canada. The company plans to raise the Ross Dam in Washington State by 125 feet and thus back up water in the dam and sources of power would cost the f city an extra million.

Sentence will be passed involved in the conspiracy. The verdict came after 22 days of trial. The five charged in the original arrest Aug. 7, 1968 were accused of conspiring to traffic in drugs between Sept. 1, 1966 and July 18, 1968. Charged were Gunn, John McKecff, 30, of to two years and Simons was dismissed with the word from Judge W. R. Mcln-tyre that he was "lucky." On May 5, a new trial this was shortlived defence counsel objected on technical grounds to the full jury list from which a panel would be selected. This full panel was dismissed May 7. The second trial began May 19 and went for 23 days to June 19. In it McKeoff was convicted and later sentenced to 10 years in prison. The charge against ley south of Hope, 80 miles east of Vancouver.

He said it is apparent that the plan by Seattle City Light Co. to raise its Ross Lake dam and pay flood damages to British Columbia is wrong from an economic point of view and a year compensation for flooding more than acres of the Skagit valley. Wildlife and conservation organizations call the scheme a "giveaway" and have demanded the flooding be stopped. Seattle City Light says for instance, that set up a national water bomber fleet to help the he said. "I think it .makes sense to have a strategic water bomber fleet which could locate at .one or two strategic places in DAVIS Question Is men were charged with contempt as a result of jury tampering, and one convicted.

"Federal government lawyers are studying the deal and will rcDort to the cabinet on how it might be said Mr. Davis. "I can't say we are going to stop it, but I will certainly have to- be convinced it should go ahead." Asked what Canada's chances are of stopping the scheme, which was ratified by both the provincial and federal governments before the international joint commission, which has jurisdiction over international waterways, was established, he said: "the inference is that we have the authority." Mr. Davis noted that Joe Greenej minister of mines, energy .and resources, has asked Seattle City Light on three occasions to apply for a licence from the federal government. Mr. Greene also said public hearings will be held on the proposal. Mr. Davis said Seattle City Light must also go before the U.S. Federal Power Commission and it is unlikely that body will rubber-stamp its Plane Catches Fire In Mid-Air .VALLEYVIEW Norman Raulston, a farmer near this northwestern Alberta community, suffered bums when his light aircraft caught fire in mid-air shortly alter take-off.

The minister hinted at strong measures to preserve Canada's recreational value through federal legislation. "We can move directly on pulp mill standards through the fisheries act, but we can only move to the extent that measures are needed to protect fish and fish can live in some kinds of he said. "For instance, you can have turbidity in water. It's an eyesore, it hurts recreation, but it doesn't necessarily hurt the fish so the fisheries act won't do everything. "We're going to bring in new regulations, worked out with the industries, and certainly met by the majority of companies and met by all new mills. "These mil be regulations which the industry itself, in the great regards as reasonable. We'll enforce them (the new regulations) on the mavericks or laggards who are refusing to do the reasonable thing.

For the Royal Canadian Mounted Police drug squad, it was the end of seven years of intensive investigation, and preparation for trial.
