    George W Kamehameha had heard rumors that Prime Minister Wilcox Might not run for re-election but he gave them no credit. He had a private conversation with his brother Charles who was now the Head of the Royal Bank of Hawaii. Charles was concern about the spending by the government and worried that it could create real problems for the Kingdom's economy. He agreed that he saw nothing to suggest that the Prime Minister was thinking of not running but noted that his wife said that Patricia Wilcox was unhappy with the amount of time that her husband was away and that the Wilcox era might be drawing to a close soon.

    In a private lunch at the Prime Minister's Office George W Kamehameha and Prime Minister Christopher Wilcox discussed the upcoming National election and what legislation he hoped to accomplish. The Prime Minister was quite frank in his discussion and expressed amazement that George's father was able to serve for so long. Christopher stated that his wife had had it with al of the travel and the long hours. George stated that his mother felt the strain but that his father made her his partner in everything. She was glad when he retired. The Prime Minister then asked him would he run for Prime Minister and George smiled and said that he was considering it. He would support Wilcox with another term

    1918 The Hawaiian Budget had finally been passed and several trade treaties were now having hearings. The Ireland Base Treaty was a revision to the agreement and would run for 25 years It was undergoing hearing by the House Armed Services Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The Administration was supporting the agreement but the Social Democratic Party was opposed to it. Since the National Conservatives had a Majority it was expected to pass but the Prime Minister was seeking support from the Liberal Democrats.Chairman George W Kamehameha had the support of all of the National Conservatives and almost alll of the Liberal Democrats on the Armed Services Committee.

    The Liberal Democrat Party had now started to support what was considered the traditional foreign Policy of the Kingdom. Hawaii had a strong relationship with the British Commonwealth, Central American Republic, Empire of Brazil and the Kingdom of Ireland. It had also developed a special relationship with the United States during Prime Minister-ship of William Kamehameha. There had been some disagreement on defense policy between the two parties but this was mainly over types of warships to be built.

    Late August 1918 Prime Minister Wilcox announced in an interview with Hawaii's Largest Newspaper that he would seek another term as Prime Minister in 1920. He was concern with the situation in Asia and in Europe. He had approved of the Irish Government's attempt to prevent a war between Russia and the Austro-German-Polish Alliance. The Irish Envoy had made some progress and hoped to return with additional proposals after talkins with the Austrian, German, Polish and British governments

    George arrived in Ireland with his brother and sister and they rushed to the Hospital in Dublin. While George and Charles comforted their mother their sister spoke with the doctors. Since she was also a medical professional they were able to explain clearly what they had done. The patient was clearly in serious medical trouble. She clearly was disturbed by the inability to improve things. She wished that her father was in Hawaii but that was not to be . he could not travel by air.

    The Hawaiian Naval vessel dispatched from Hawaii to Ireland was proceeding through the America Canal. It had cleared Hawaii in record time and was setting a record for traveling to Ireland. The medical team on board was being advised of the former Prime Minister's condition by a special radio connection with the Hospital. Admiral William Kamehameha II had left for Ireland by airship and was briefed by Radio on his farther's condition. He had spoken to his brother George and Charles but not his sister, as she was too busy with their father's care. The Admiral's wife was also aboard.
