Plan for a Civil Administration Dis
cussed at Yesterday's Cabinet
WASHINGTON. Sept. 12,-The cab
inet meeting today was occupied ln a i
discussion of Ihe form of civil govern
ment for Porto Rloo. The Indications
now are that some form of local gov.
ernment will be decided upon and put !
Into operation within the next few!
The proposed plan, It is understood,
involves the appointment of a civil
governor by the president and also the
appointment of chiefs for several great
departments of government who would I
include the chief of the financial depart-1
ment, the director of posts, and prob-
ably two or three others. In addition
the president will appoint from the
leading cltlien of the island a certain
number to act In a legislative capacity
with the civil governor and members
of his council.
It ls not Intended that this form of
government shall continue beyond the
time when congress may aee fit to leg
