by a desire to cru'te an embarrassing
situation for the I'nlted States
The opinion that the so-called Webb
bill Is quite within tho American-Japanese
treaty is based on a study of the
conditions existing when Hip treaty was
framed nnd the situation It was de
signed to meet. The peculiar phrasing
of the article covering the holding of
land and buildings Is due mom to con
ditions of laud tenuip lu Japan than
to conditions In any State of the l.'uioii,
The treaty inakis a distinction be
tween the ownership of "houses, manu
factories, warehouses and shops," sep
arately from the land Itself. That Is,
It Is reciprocally granted that aliens of
either country may have their cholco
of owning or leasing buildings of the
rlasses specified above. This nrranRP
ment wns due largely to the fnet that in
Japan the ownership of buildings sep.
finitely froip the laud on which they
""' "fund Is recognized In law. ln thn
1,'nlted Statps, though such distinctions
nrn nnuslttln It lu lint eilbtnmiirv tn sen.
nrnto tho ownership of the two, and
ownership of a hublness structure luva
riably carries with It title to the lnnrt.
Similarly it is held by the best legnl
opinion here that the treaty pannot
1'roperly be construed as granting the
rmht to lease agricultural land. The pur
poses for which mini mny tin
leiised are specified so clearly ns.
"for lesldentliil nnd commercial pur
poses," and the classification of
buildings which may bo owned or leased
Is likewise so prcPlsp, that It Is held
that tho Japanese would have no ground
for claiming that tho right to hold agri
cultural land Is to bo Interred from tho
lnnguuRo of the treaty. Such a right
has never been desired by any Ameri
can in Japan, ami It Is the understand
