Following the general surprise at
the receipt of a cable from Washing

I'ounclcg the nomination of 1 E. Pink
l.am for governor of -Hawaii, general
. sentiment is . Bwinging Into line ad
getting on . the "Plnkham "Band
wagon". That he .is the. man for the
Job is almost the unanimous opinion
today. t; - v
Cablegrams of congratulation have
t-een forwarded to Mr Pinkham in
WaBhlneton. while local friends have
reclTe4 confirmation of the news of j
his ' appointment, as given them , by
the Star-Bulletin. ' j
Rumors that protests have been
- filed aralnst the appointment fall of
..confirmation either in Honolulu or In
Washington. So far as can he earned,
the decision of the president will be
allowed to stand with any open dis
sension being .registered. -;
''. That D. E. Metzger, will be named
territorial secretary continues the talk
of Mra. Grundy . and the fact ; that
Messrs, Pinkham and Metzger were
business associates In the well boring
business is given by the knowing ones
as a reason for such an appointment
being made.
1 Another candidate mentioned for the
Becretaryrhip is Dr. James H. Ray
mond .and his many friends are of the
opinion that his chances for the posi
tion are as bright as those of anyone
this far suggested.
Dr. C. B. Cooper strongly denies.
that he is a candidate for the secre
taryship or any other office in the
pfft of the governor. He states that
his private ; practice keeps Jiim suffi
ciently husy and that he is seeking no
political Job.
On. every. band today the sentiment
tied up work on the big
would, be tackled by still another ex

final decision was reached as
to the resumption of the work; and the
distribution of financial responsibility

the rumored intention of Secretary
Daniels to. employ outside help on the

Because one of their number had

Walter F. Woods, co-partner of Gus
Mhuerson, testified before the coron
er's jury this afternoon that he con
sidered the ateel pillara on the armory
job too light to ; support" the trusaea
for the roof and that he and Anderson
had protested against what they de
clared was a weakness and a danger.
He said the work was stopped - and
then 'started again, and that the archi
tects had said it was all right to go
ahead. He had always considered the
job unsafe, he testified.
Johnson, a fellow workman on the
job when Anderson was' killed, and
who narrowly missed death himself,
testified to practically the same
things. He also said he considered
the supporting steel pillars too light,
and that to stiffen them temporary
wooden braces had been fastened
down the sides, '.'v:

A statement made to the Star-Bulletin
last night by Lee B. Turner, one

covery today that official correspon

tractor, Honolulu Planing. Mill, show,
ing that neither side ' regarded the
steel erection work as entirely safe
owing to the manner in which the pil
lars and trusses were being put np.
Correspondence Shows Protest -
The Star-Bulletin was furnished
with copies ; of the correspondence
showing that the architects protested
against the pillars and trusses being
put up in advance of the side-walls,
taking : the position that the great
weight of the trusses resting on the
slender pillars , fifty . feet In the air
constituted a menace to safety. It is
also fchown that expert advice was se
