A license is- establish by a ootraeet whioh
rely c oonfers a privilege of hunting or tishi"ngu a
prealses of the granter although the parties e tat-
ed the transaction a 'lease.,
13BI v. MCFAJDDIR, supra.
In its first opinion in the EIBEmh v. I ro*NDvE
oase the ouret held in respect to. an ins truneat grantiag
the right to trap an fihta on ertai lastd for two years,
in consideration of oaly $I.00, and prohibiting pantee
from subletting or assign such rights or p tia
others to exercise then, as follows
Buat though the contract under nrhich tlbbian
hold denominates itself a 'leasso and ppellee
so d enoa nates it in his petition, we believe
on the allegations of appellee's petition that
it s. in fat only a personal license to ibbin
to enjoy the rights granted has by its terms,
and is in no sense a technical lease, as that
te r is uasrstoodd.'
On an appeal frost a trial on the merits of the
ease, the sae court aids
* While the Suprme Court denieM a writ of
error in this oase, thereby as we underatan
sustaining us in what .e said was the nature of
this contrast and the rights of the parties
thereto, we have again carefully sonasideret e1
that was said on the former appeal, and have
again reached the conclusion that we correotly
defined the rights of the parties.
For the purposes of this opinion a lease rau be
defined as a grant of an estate in lint for a lit ed
term with conditions attehed.
