Government by commission has
been a threat held ovr the islands
by some people for many years past.
Tin' fact that, always in the past, there
have been internal disagreements a
bout almost every appoin'ment made
l.y Washington to a federal island po
sition, and about many other matters
that only needed a real "get-together"
feeling to put an end to, has, no doubt,
had its et'feqt In the national capilol
where, after all. these islands do not
loom up as large as the residents of
the group imagine. Still, it. must be
said that since the authorities have
started to fortify Oahu and make it
practically a garrison town, Hawaii
lias loomed up more prominently
in the eyes of the administration
than ever before. But, this very fact
has made the commission form of gov
ernment more probable, and there is
i lot to be said in favor of the idea
from the viewpoint of Washington.
It can hardly be expected that the
national government, is to go on
spending millions ol dollars in making
Oaliu impregnable and in improving
conditions generally, while elected
county officials continue to make a
mess of tilings altogether and embar
rass the military. An end must come
to such an arrangement some day, and
there are those who would welcome
a commission form of government,
for then a terrible amount of waste
would be avoided and the people
would get more for their money ev
ery way. Oahu seems fated to be
come not only a part of the commiss
ioned governed territory, but also a
separate military governed garrison
town, where the commanding ollicer
will be supreme. When this comes to
pass, Hilo will be far more important
than she is at present, and this city
will not be worried much by the
military authorities. The commission
government will, of course, do away
with our elected county officials and
consequently, there will be no polities
to worry the intelligent voters who
will, automatically, become non
voters. Hawaii Herald.

Vegetables of all sorts are beginning

promises to be the best seller of all.
