rettry of the Territory, last' flight. If

that a lengthy cablegram, ' signed by
representatives- of the Hawaiian toel
tin, bad gone forward yesterday to
Secretary Lane mi lung that he tie nom
inated as Governor of Hawaii to taa-
ceed Lucius E. Pinkham.
Colonel uhea aayi that he has no
direct Knowledge that any such cable
gram has gone forward, but that he
understands that it has, and if it fiat
it was. without bis knowledge or eon
"With all due respect to the wishes
of those who are interesting them
selves in my behalf in connection with
the governorship, s,nd who are no
doubt actuated by the best of motives,
I wish ft say," said Hceretary Iinhee,
in a rormnl statement, "that if My
itame has been sent on to Washington
jfor the office, as is stated, it wm on-
nuT-nonaca ana without my content.
Doesn't Want Jeb.
"I have no aspirations for the got-.
emorshlp and would be compelled to
decline it were the honor conferred'
upon me, and furthermore, I would
not be loyal to Governor Pinkhtm's
administration, of which I am part,'
were I te lend myself to any move or
action that would stand in the way
of his reappointment or retention in
"I believe that the -present execu
tive enyiys the full confidence of the
Administration and certainly baa
proved himself a friend of Hawaii and
Hawnitana. Far be it from me to lend
mvsclf to his undoing." ,
While the Kesretary of the Terri
tory did not say no, it is believed that
the above statement, or one approxi
mating it. has already been cabled on
to Secretary Lane, on the heels of the
ruble asking for his nomination.
Didn't Bother Witt Plnkbao.
"We have sent on our request to
Secretary Iae tht he awe laukea
as Governor, " aaid Rudolph M. Dun
can, a prominent Hawaiian leader, yes
terday. "We. spoke to,Mr,i laukea,
informally, about H an Saturday,' and
tie. arted Via ' tq talk otr the matUr
with the OoWrnW: before are-took ac
tion. But we have decided '-toVaiaM,
our recommendation, in the name of
the Hawaiian people, witffinit consult
ing anyone but ourselves. We did not
CO back to see Mr. Tauiea nor did we
bother calling on the Governor.
"What we have done is to make
our wishes plain to Secretary I.ne.
Whflt he may do or decide is not for
ns to sny. lie is the man who will
choose the Ocfvernor. not us.
Hawnlians Back laukea
"T have been both surprised and
delighted at the unanimous manner in
which fhe Hawaiian leaders, as rep
resented by the officers of the main
Hawaiian societies, hsve rallied back
of the request upon Washington that
Inuken be named. While a number
signed under the 'understanding that
there will be no publicity given to the
mutter until Washington is heard from,
not one of those asked to sign refused
to do so.
"As Hawaiians we believe that
Colonel Tn uken has demonstrated his
fitness for the high rut position in this
Territory, and as lie is fitted for the
Governorship we want him to be
named for that post."
As yet there has been no statement
from Colonel McCarthy repudiating
the messages sent to Washington on
hi behalf for the position. As treas
urer of the Territory ho does not feel
under the same obligation as the Acc
rete ry, apparently, to go down with
