The little knot of four politicians is now officialily re cognised as' "the" commission, and is free to roam the Commonwealth at public expense, each commissioner drawing 25s a day epenses-besides his £600 a year as a Federal member. It is a pity the Govenanent had not the courage to advise the. Governor General to disbn?d the commission. As matters stand the Ministry, art a Cabinet meeting, recently, decided to naspoint Mr. William Wilks, M.P., chairman of the commnission, and'to nlter the terms of tle letters patent, so that three meemir ivill form a quorum of that body.
