Wc do not quite understand the aar
nouncement that the Kmperor William is

I What right h»s he to ask or expect such

There is a war on now betweea two
I countries, the Lnited States and Spain.
| The victor in that war will dispose of the

; right to dispose of them will be asserted
when they have been conquered, even if

An exchange says: "Our attention
has been called to the careless disre
spect shown to the flag by so many
people who hang it from their win
dows or above their houses and leave
it their night and day regardless of
the weather." It says,"on shipboard
and military posts where the flag has a
real significance it is raised at sunrise
' and lowered at sunset It is never
I left out in the storm. Thus the starry
! banner is kept clean and bright and is
; always treated with respect. It should
> receive the same treatment from every
I person." There is a good point in
this and hence we publish it.
