tax system of the Territory bo perfect
that It Is beyond the possibility ol

Admiral Dewey uotv has a task on

trouble than getting married or aspir
ing to the Presidency, 'lhcro are few
Americans who would not prefer

Acting I'nltcd States Attorney, today:

Dear Sir In the case of Joseph H.

uadv holds lands In tho Ilawalt'iu Isl

this m (iiiBtlion by the said Joseph II.
Aihcrton as such trusteo vna and Is
In contravention of Section u." of the
Act to provide n Government lor tho
Tenltoiy of Unwell, to tho cllict thaf
"No corporation shall own nnd hold
leal estate In the Hawaiian Islands In
excess of one thousand uuies," and
that, therefore, the plaintiff Is not on
titled to proceed In equity against tho
defendnnt. There waB an eccptlon
taken to this portion of tho nnxuor on
the giouuil that the name was Impel tl
limit, which exception this court sus
tained because of tho law not allow
ing nnv one hut tho Government to
make the objection that a corporation
has acquired and holds more than a
thousand acres of land, as limited by
tho Organic Act.
As tills matter was attempted to be
set up by the defendant bb a defense
In this suit, nnd thcrciore may bo eas

Government, for such action by our

Mr. Dunne has not jet mado up his
mind what action he will take In the
Tho only Instruction the lluletln's
Washington correspondent has ever
received Is to get facts. This is so far
removed from tho long established and
dishonest policy of the Advertiser that
the ponderous organ cannot tealize
that any paper can puisne an honest
policy. Honesty and accuracy havo
ever characterized the Ilulletln, never

forced to plow up their eollee trees
which were hoped to be the salvation
of the country in diversified Industiles.
It Is fortunate they sto able to find
profit In sugar but a greater benefit
would bo derived If a positive move
ment could be started thioughout the
Territory to secme piotectlon for tho
coffee fields that represent' a good
un.ount of invested capital.
This transport load of well educated
hardy men and women that Honolulu
is now entertaining Is proof positive
that the pioneer spirit of tho great
American people Is handed down to
tho present geneiatlon In full force. It

It Is an open qucstloVsa whether the
President did not disapprove of tho
Cooper bond scheme In pure self de

tho President might expect a request
that he pay the salary of local officials
