Furthermore, U thowg that Mr. Kinney Is endeavoring to get the delegate to change his ' mind about supporting Pinkham. Delegate Kuhlo says In.ihis letter. which is date July 28: "Pinkham, as I cabled, has been ap ' pointed governor. His pull has come lrora Representative Kent of Califor nia. He (Kent) some time ago asked me whether I had any candidate. 1 told him no and he then proposed Pjnkham's name.

In this connection, that Ha waii's fight against free sugar should be made on the merit of the situa tion In Hawaii, where conditions are Different from Louisiana. The delegate's letter shows that he was active In trying to secure hear ings for the Hawaiians who were at Washington, and .that he and Kinney were cordially received at the -White House on- one occasion when they went to talk on sugar. ' "I went over with W. A. Kinney to the White House," and asked to see the president to talk over the Hawaii an situation on sugar," he says.
