INSULT THROUGH IGNORANCE.
The Toyo Klshen Kaleba'u steamship
America Maru committed an indignity
to the American flag this morning. It
hoisted It below tbe Japanese flag on
the foremast. Tbe Stare and Stripes
was thus placed at balfmaet with the
flag ot a foreign nation above It. Brit
ish steamers carrying American malts,
and American steamers carrying Brit
ish malls, are a common sight in Ho
nolulu. Before tbe. Hawaiian flag went
out of existence on the teas, the prac
tice was to carry the Hawaiian flag on
the foremast on coming Into port. It
It was a British steamer tbe American
flag would fly at tbe tcp of another
mast, and vlce(verea with an American
steamer; while fhe,flag ct tbe country
to which the steamer belonged was
carried at the peak. There was no plac
ing of one nation's flag above another.
Nobody for a moment believe e that tha
Japanese steamer has made this
breach of International etiquette wan
tonly. Japan Is still young in ocean
steamship commerce, and tbe ofHcers
of the America Maru will be up to
their business sometime.

Attorney General Dole at this morn
ing's council submitted to Governor
Dole an "opinion relative to tho effect
upon the Land Act ot 1895 ot the Ter
ritorial Act and of tho extension of the
Constitution and laws of tho United
States to theso Islands."
He finds that section 90 of tho Land

The Land Act was Intended to pro
mote ths acquisition of homesteads by
people of small means 1st, by Inalien
able and unattnchable homestead
leases, for 999 years; 2d, by right of
purchase leasen,for 21 years.
"I am of, tho opinion," soys tho At
torney General, "that the; provisions
of the Land Act relative to homestead
leases and right of purchaso leases nro
repealed by Implication, being Incon
sistent with section 73 of the Territor

things, that 'no lcnso ot agricultural
land shall be granted, sold or renewed

Tho Attorney General Is ot opinion
that the privilege ot acquiring n home

ritorial Act, but thinks that tbo privi
lege Is materially restricted by Section
73 of the Territorial Act where, among
other changes In tho Land Act, It Is
prescribed that tho words, "that I am
a citizen of the United States," or "that
I have declared my Intention to be

required by law," shall lie substitute-!
for the words, "that I am a citizen by

Quoting tho old form ot application,
the Attorney General proceeds to say:
"Tho Territorial Act plainly restricts
acquisition ot homesteads under the
system ot cash freeholds, pursuant to
the Land Act of 1895, to citizens ot the
United States and those who havo
legally declared their Intention to be-
corao such citizens.
This excludes Asiatics, except the
few who wero citizens of tho Republic
of Hawaii on August 12, 1898, and havo
consequently become, citizens of the
United States pursuant to Section 4 ot
the Territorial Act, as Section 21C9 of

Then, as to sales: "Section 201 ut
tho Chll Laws ot 1897 (Section 17 ot

tho purchaser Is not required by the
Land Act or by Section 73 of tho Terri

Congress passed ten years earlier."
He quotes the provisions In question,
which declare that no alien "shall ac
quire tltlo to or own any land In any
of tho Territories of the United
States," with toe following exceptions,
viz.: where tbo right Is Becured. by
