WASHINGTON, July 23. Them Is
only one thciun of Hawaiian discussion
tn Washington for tho moment and that
is the nomination yesterday of I.. K.
I'uikham to bo Governor of Hawaii.
Tho first inkling that friends in congress
of various candidates for the office

Tho Advertiser's exclusive information
from Washington that Secretary of the
Interior I.nuo had recommended

is before the senate, awaiting commit

nothing yet to indicate whether there
will lie opposition. Soma Democrats
would like to oppose it, uinong
them Senator John Sharp Williams, of
Mississippi. Tho most likely grounds
of opposition would bn that I'inkham
is n Ilcpublicaii and that tho nomination
would bo olfensivo to Japanese.
However, a cablegram today from the
Democratic territorial committee of
Hawaii, stating that I'inkham would be J
acceptable to them, is likely to blanket
any criticism about I'inkhnm being a
