"In principle" is an idiom some

HAWAII LANDS SALES ARE ILLEML.
Washington, Sept. 20. Today's
usual, Secretaries Hay, Gage and Long were tlie absentees. The cable of
General Otis, Informing the Secretary of War that Aguinaldo's request
that one of his representatives be allowed to come through the American
lines for a conference with General Otis regarding the release of American
prisoners, was laid before the mestlng by Secretary Root and discussed at
length. The question of the releas; of the Spanlbh prisoners whom Ajrul
naldo Is reported as ready to rcliise If transports are smt to the blockaded
ports for that purpose was considered, but ho action taken.
A question having atisen as to the title of public lands in Ha
waii, it was briefly discussed, but in tlie absence of Secretary
Hay no further action was taken.
It is understood that President Mckinley will issue an order
restraining the Hawaiian Government from alienating any of
the public lands of Hawaii cither by sale or lease.
Attorney General Griggs has rendered a decision relative to
these public lands, occasioned by a petition from some Ameri
can citizens who have "squatted" on a large tract of land In the
coffee district, which the Hawaiian Government was about to
place on the market. The Attorney General holds that the
Hawaiian Government has no legal right to dispose of any part
or parcel of the public lands of Hawaii!. It is furthermore held
that all transfers of land made by the Hawaiian Government
since annexation are illegal and void.
The statement was made today by a gentlemen close to Secre
tary Hay that President McKinloy will call upon the officers of the
Hawaiian Government to cancel all leases and sales of public lands
made since the enactment of the Newlunds Resolution, and
shall also return the money to the purchasers. It is said the
administration holds that the Newlands Resolution gave the
public lands of Hawaii in trust to the Hawaiian Government
and no lands can be disposed of except by special act of Con
gress, as provided in tlie Newlands Resolution.
