The Government, having decided to set up a „ „ , „ Royal Commission to inquire Sederies’** wor^*n 8 °* the friendly Commission, societies in the Colony, must constitute it in such a way as to give confidence alike to the various organisations affected and to the country at large. The letter of “ A Lover of Justice,” which appears elsewhere, shows that there is already a fear in Interested circles that two Orders strongly represented in Parliament will obtain undue influence on the Commission. Ministers must carefully avoid creating such a feeling. Whilst many of the names suggested by our Parliamentary correspondent are able and zealous men, who are intimately acquainted with the whole subject that will be remitted to the Commission, it will never do to have any one Order too strongly rc-

presented thereon, The Cabinet must act justly towards all. Certainly some of the organisations that do not yet appear to have been considered must have representation if good is to result from the Commission’s investigations. The Government have in their own service several gentlemen whose knowledge of tbeqnestion is unquestioned, and the appointment of any one of whom to a seat on the Commission would be received with general satisfaction. We feel sure that the Premier is as anxious as anyone to have the Commission as truly representative as possible, and that he will listen to any reasonable suggestions on the subject.
