A meeting of the commission is sched uled for 'Wednesday, and this malteT probably will be discussed at that time. The commission has two methods for relief; one is an appeal to the su preme court of the United States, and the other an appeal 'direct to the federal shipping board.

A shortage of officers, for motor, steam and sailing vessels going off shore is predicted by shipping men on account of the large number of navi eat or 8 being called to the navy for service on government ships. Nearly all of the masters and first officers of ships sailing from this port are mem bers of the naval reserve, and must answer the call whenever jnade Navi gation schools conducted by the Fed eral Shipping board are turning out new officers quite fast, but doubt is expressed along the water front that there will be sufficient supply from the school to take all the positions made vacant by the men going into the government service. Officers are being taken from coast wise, China and Australian vessels, with all the companies losing some ot their best men. HEIGHT and TICKETS Also reservations any point on the Mainland.

The permission was received by the i United States inspectors of hulls and: boilers in Saturday's mail from the coast and the information was imme diately transmitted to the Inter-Island officals. The Doris was purchased on the i coast several months ago to replace the Hamakua. which was destroyed in May off the coast of Maui by fire. After arriving: here the steamer was materially altered, to make it suit able for the island trade, and if was then placed on the run between Ho-j uolulu and the Hamakua ccast ports, j It was desired at the time to re name the steamer . Onomea. but this permission had first to be secured from the government. Onomea. after which the steamer is now named, is a.postoffice and port on the island of Hawaii, a few miles out of Hilo. 4 W mi "Are you trying to economize?
