There is a screw loose somewhere in our governmental machinery. An officer is appointed to the head of a department, and lie seems to DC under no direct control in the conduct of his depart ment, except some irregularity occurs and complaint is made then of course the Governor-in-Council steps in. But we mean in the ordinary conduct of his office or depart ment; beseems to be like Alexander Selkirk, Monarch of all hesurvevs; and responsible to nobody,consequently things drop into a happy go lucky go as you please fashion, that is calculated to lead up to confusion and trouble; the late executive checked this slackness somewhat by his frequent and unannouuc ed visits. Now to l lie Conclu i >ns..f the Commission which follow :— CONCLUSIONS. (a) I hat the Supei inti ndent has neglected to cam out the instructions of the Hospital Ho,ud to pay all drafts as they became due, and that during the months of March August 1915drafts weie frequently permitted by him to become overdue befon being paid.

(d) Th.it exlia expi use has been caused to the lust 1 tut ion by purchasing |< (ally, and that such extra expense could in a number of instances, have been avoided by more careful observation and check by the Superintendent from time to time of the quantities on hand in the Storeroom ami the timely ordering fr>mi abroad of quantities v u Hi c i en t to meet all requirements Conner ed with the Institution (e) I bat on several occasions the Superintendent has borrowrd grits, rio, and milk for the use of the Institution from local traders, and that i this is not a proper or advisa hie method of conducting business in the cave of a pub lie Institution.

THREE CHEEER8 FOR

The b Hid "f the West India
Regiment had by this tune
entered ibe compound, and a
few minutes latei the bai talion
marched IT. the ijeueal lead
ing, sourrounded by his staff
There was a large crowd of
spei 11tors al the iiate, but the
men were taken through the
jiGanis 'ii compound,ands ithey
?ll.iil to cli ise around the road in
order to overtake tin ni, As the
battalion man lied through the
Garrison compound, the men
ol the West India Regimen*!
gave them a rousing cheer, to
which they responded in no tin
certain ^ a\
The route taken was the same
as mi previous occasions. I he\
came down Smith Camp Ro id
winch was throng* d w ith peo
pie cheering as 'hr men went
along. The crowd beta me to
great that Lieut. Ofley and
Waters had to ride in front ol
the hind at North Stn-et, where
thev were metby twn mounted
police orderlies. The battalion
then turned into North Street and
patted the Roman Catholic
CathedraL, where, standing at
the Rates, His Lordship Bishop
Collins gave the men his bios
ing. The other priests with him
were the Veiy Rev. Fr O'l tare
Fit. Xlulry, Finke, Howie and-
Kayser
From North Street the men
turned into Hanover Street, and
at the Militia I le.idquarters,
they were joined by a party of
Bo) Si >utt .i- well as the drum
corps of the K. I V. The latter
cam- in useful, as the line was

could hardlj hear the hand
Turning into East Queen Stieet,
where the crowd seemed to
have grown into enormous, pro

GREAT CROWD IN
KING STREET.
King Street was blocked by a
surging mastol people as the
nun swung round, and butim BS
fur the time being was suspend
ed in all the stores. The Sal
\ ation Armj Band was on the
colonnade of the Cowen Mutio
Rooms discoursing patriotic
airs, and there was quite a little
cheerini! as the men passed
From King Street the battalion
turned into Harboui Street and
moved Eatt The police and
military had the approaches to
the Royal Mail Wharf under
control, and only those who had
passes to the pier were allowed
to pass. Thus the crowd had
to ttop around the sidewalks,
while the men entered the wharf
premises from the Fatl Stieet
gate, where they arrived at a
bout 10 o'clock.
As soon as all the men had
filed in the Band left and the
General and Staff dismounted

No time was lost in getting
the men aboard. Everything
teemed ready and in a few mill

the men in batches. Little b)

ist. That the INFLUENCE
OF SOCIETY upon the gov
ernmental administration of
the Colony is undue, and de-
trimental to the best interests
of the Colony, we mean that
behind the bars of Society?
officials who ha thereto have and enjoy undue
advantage of those who are
not so favoured.
To illustrate, only two or
three years ago, this colony
had a most difficult task to
rid itself of two incompetent
and indolent officials owing
to their social Standing
Again, so subordinate olliei
alsas Nurses have before now,
immediately on arrival been
made habitues of government
house, with t lie result of said
nurses setting the Commis-
sioners at defiance. We
would not for a single mo-
ment restrict the pleasure and
recreation of an\ public ser-
vants, but devotion to bridge,
tennis, golf or dancing must
not be set before and mad<
of ni'>re importance than the
faithful discharge of those
duties foi which such public
servant may be paid by the
puMic; there's the rub, in
their zeal for society they f >r
get the duties (if their office
and still more that they are
public servants. Conferences
over the society tea cup and
card table fix the doom of
some faithful servant who
does not figure within the
charmed circle ; and on the
other hand some faulty offi
rials are shriven over the
aforesaid society tea cup and
card table.
2nd. There is a screw loose
somewhere in our govern-
mental machinery. An offi-
cer is appointed to the head
of a department, and lie seems
to DC under no direct control
in the conduct of his depart
ment, except some irregular-
ity occurs and complaint is
made then of course the Gov-
ernor-in-Council steps in.
But we mean in the ordinary
conduct of his office or de-
part ment; beseems to be like
Alexander Selkirk, Monarch
of all hesurvevs; and respon-
sible to nobody,consequently
things drop into a happy go
lucky go as you please fash-
ion, that is calculated to lead
up to confusion and trouble;
the late executive checked
this slackness somewhat by
his frequent and unannouuc
ed visits.
Now to l lie Conclu i >ns..f
the Commission which fol-
low :
Conclusions.
(a) I hat the Supei inti n-
dent has neglected to cam
out the instructions of the
Hospital Ho,ud to pay all
drafts as they became due,
and that during the months
of March August 1915drafts
weie frequently permitted by
