WASHINGTON, June G.-Governor!
Walter P. Frear, with his family,;
reached here Monday of this week nnd(
will remain for about a week before!
going to Chcago to attend tho Re-(
publican National Convention. G3v-
ornor Frear, immediately upon his ar-j took In this matter, but ho Is not dls
rival in Washington, called upon thojturbed over the final outcome of the
secretary oi mo interior una uibcubs -
ed with him the proposed visit of
tho Secretary to Hawaii. The Sec-j
retary intends to make the viBit, but,
is uncertain as to tho time he will,
bo able to go. Ho told the Governor
that he was anxious to make te ,trip
as soon as possible, and had anticip
ated that possibly he could go during
July. Tho probability that Congress
will still be in session during that
month and the necessity for tho Sec
cretary being in Washington while
Congress is in session malt it nec
essary to postpone tho trip to a
later date. The Secretary said he
hoped ho would bo able to go. in Au-,,ln tho several immigration bills,

gram. Following the split between
Link McCandless and Sheriff Jnrrctt,
it Is said that tho latter is to be turn
ed down by tho Democratic conven
tion, and that with him .will go Char
ley Rose, the deputy sheriff.
Joe Fern has played foxy, and isn't
'ln bad" with Link as Jarrott is. In
fact, it is said that Joo played in with
all sides In tho recent skirmish which
ended so disastrously for the oppon
ents of Link. Uut the wlso ones in
tho party say he can't be elected ma
yor again and Fern Is stated to have
n realization of this fact. Neverthe
less his abilities as a vote-getter com-'j
mand respect, and it is thought that)
if he can bo Bhuntod over to tho can
didacy for sheriff, and a strong man
put up for mayor, Forn will help to(
carry tho ticket.

The Governor, from Inquiries he has
