torney General declines to express an opinion as to the validity of a certain tax claim and lien therefor arising under the Federal income tax laws as applied to the Virgin Islands of the United States, because this question can only be settled finally by the courts.

flict with a judicial tribunal. 143. 3. Rehabilitation of the Virgin Islands.-The proposed lease of

" States Soldiers' Home, namely, the governor, deputy governor, and secretary, are persons "holding a civilian office or position

tude “is defined as anything done contrary to justice, honesty, principle, or good morals;
Moral turpitude implies something immoral in itself, regardless of the fact whether it is punishable by law. It must not merely be mala prohibita, but the act itself must be inherently immoral. The doing of the act itself, and not its prohibition by statute, fixes the moral turpitude." 294.
