If the Chamber of Commerce and others, peeved at the
port commission, are sincere in wishing the commissioners
elected at large, why didn't they advocate »uch a change be
fore the last legislature?
Why didn't they come out in the open and a«k that all
the port commissioners should be elected at large, just like
all of our councilmen are? Why did they come to the
lature with their sneaking, skulking proposition to have some
superior court judge APPOINT two additional members?
The Chamber of Commerce did not concern itself then
with the question of whether the port commissioners should
be elected at large or by districts. Its chief purpose was to
gain control of the commission by having two more commis
sioners appointed. It did not even propose to have them
elected until that amendment was forced upon President
Chilberg by Senator Land on.
The pretended excuse now offered by the Chamber of
Commerce, that five commissioners are needed because it is
desirable to have two members elected at large, instead of by
districts, is nothing more than buncombe.
That is not the real purpose. If it were, the Chamber of
Commerce bill in the legislature, introduced by Senator Collins,
would have called for the election of all the commissioners at
large instead of attempting to get two new commissioners
The campaign now waged by the chamber and
the Harbor Island crowd is merely undertaken in the
hope that in some way they will be able to control the
two new members. That is the whole story in a nut
Henry Brown's father and mother were married when the aenior
Brown *>i earning It.SS a day. with occasional lay-offs. They started
housekeeping In two rooms. She did the housework, mad* and mend
ad the clothe*. took care of the babies and by her capable ways
made It posalhle for her husband to lay something aalde. Out of those
carefully, painfully accumulated savings Henry was educated
Henry expects to be married this June. Ha draw* a aalary of
ttS a week. Hia girl la the sweetest creature en the face of th*
earth—in Henry's opinion—but she cant cook, aha has to have a
maid, and ah* and Henry are planning ta start In a elaaay apartment.
At the beginning thalr horn* will b* awaiiar than that of tha old

A ride by rail for even a few milee. especially for pteaaure, waa
•a event In the lives of Henrr'a pa and ma.
But we are willing right now to go on record with the prediction
that It won't be long before Henry and his frau will be whlszing through
town and country In an automobile It may not bo paid for. And
it may cut alarming holea In Henry'a 9X6 par. But the Joneses and
the Smiths have autos. and the Browns are going to be every whit
aa good as they.
Of course. It Is tight that the young generation should he better
off than the old. That's what progress Is for. The wonderful achieve
menta In wealth production during the paat two score of years would
be ghastly practical jokes If young Brown and the young Mr*. lirown
this ia to be couldn't start their home making nn a higher economic
plane than their patents knew in the scantier long ago.
