By Ernest Q. Walker.
(Mail Special to The Advertiser.)
WASHINGTON, Mav 15. The throe
gubernatorial candidates aro yet in
town, but tlio administration makes no
moo toward naming Governor l'roar's
successor. Tho candidates and their
immediate supporters in Washington
are accordingly a forlorn coterie. Thoy
aro absolutely without an inkling' of
what is likely to happen, beyond a
grdwiiig conviction already communicated
to The Advertiser that tlio nomination
is still a long way o(T. '
Ordinarily it would not bo much of
a compliment to thrco stalwart candidates
for an Important ollico. to tarry
bo long in town and havo so litllu to
show as tho result of their tarrying.
UOt theso aro truly dry times for all
at Washington, and ono
sho'iild not write too harshly of tlio
forlorn Democratic trio in pursuit of
tho governorship of Hawaii. Others
havo had like experience, but nono havo
td'mo so far, waited so long and, possibly,
obtained so littTo information.
For 'the plain matter of filet is-that
the people in Honolulu know just ns
much right now about who will bo the
next Governor of Hawaii as do any
of tho wise ones now in this city.
''Link" McCnudlcss Is hero and so
is his managor,. Committeeman John 11.
Wilson. They profess to havo no clows
as to which candidate is to win or
whether any of tho candidates now
(aflelil 'will win. Thoy hear flint 1. H.

Brcckoris Good Enough.
It Is hard pickings all along the line.
Secretary of tho Interior Lano is
us to gubernatorial
prospects. Tlio other day Committeeman
Wil'on went up to the department
of justice for u litllo chat with thu
attornoy general, Mr. , Mcllcynolds.
Nothing doing there, cither. Mr, Wll
son was willing to talk about tho Hawaiian
judgeships. Mr. Mclleynnlds
was loo busy to discus? tho judicial
.situation. Then there, wps tho
"Is HreckoiiH a pretty rnpalilo
man!" inquired tho attornoy general.
"Oh. I guess so," quoth Committee,
man Wilson. ''l!6b must bo fnirlv gool
or lie would not )iave held on so long."
"Well, I guess we had better let
him 'servo fin for n little," said the
attorney general. Mr. Wilson fays ho
has recommended no ono yet for that
"It looks to mo as though Collector
Stnckablo would; bo permitted to hold
for a while, yet," declared Mr. Wilson
todav. '"flioro is nothing new I know
of about tho prospects of n Democrat
in his placo, or jn tho placo of Cottrell,
the collector of internal revenue."
Patronage business, however, is a- little
more brisk in postmastershlps.
Threo for Hilo, Knlmlii nnd
Wailuku havo already tiecn nominated

well when it is remembered that tho
oig State of Massachusetts, up to this
iftcrnoon, had Had but three Democratic
postmasters nominated, anil that
the liatch of nominations this after,
npon included only two moro for tho
Hay State. Hut Committeeman Wilson
says ho has recommended three moro
and hopes that thoy will bo nominated
at an early day. These aro H. H.
