Hilles Said to Have Assured
Rice of, Governor's Recess
Governor Ftear is to be given a re
cess reappointment by President Taft,
according to promises made to the Ha
waii delegation that went to the Chi
cago convention. .
The storj" came back that Secretary
Hilles, secretary to the. President, had
personally assured Charles A. Rice of
Kauai, member of the delegation and
now national committeeman, that the
reappointment would be made during
the congressional recess. Mr. Rice was
asked yesterday as to this story, and
while declining to discuss it at any
length, did not deny the essential par
ticulars. The report was not confiden
tial, for other members, of the delega
tion also confirm it,v and, furthermore,
the reappointment of Governor Frear
turns out to have played an important
part in the maneuvering during which
Hawaii's delegation voted for McGov

"The delegation can not be tut now,
because the convention itself adopted
the apportionment plan which gives
Hawaii six delegates." said one of the
