A bitter stalemate has emerged over the U.S. Department of Justice's refusal to accept three federal judgeship candidates who were recommended by Gov. Pete Wilson when he was a senator and endorsed by his successor, John Seymour. Approval has been blocked on a variety of grounds, according to some of those involved in the dispute: Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William A. Masterson is regarded by the department as too old at 60, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dzintra I.

At this critical juncture in American history, what with the savings-and-loan fiasco, the growing economic malaise, and the frightening prospect of war in the land of Islam, California, the country's most populous state, has been effectively left without senatorial representation in Washington. Goodby, Sen. Cranston, I will miss you greatly. I hope Sen. Pete Wilson is a better governor than he is a senator. Now is when we need you both. STEVEN L. ANGLE Ventura

Sen. Pete Wilson (R-Calif.) lost my vote when he killed the California desert bill which would have protected our desert for all Californians to enjoy now and in the future ("Desert Bill Dies; Cranston and Wilson Blame Each Other," Part I, July 8). Wilson has caved in to the big-money development interests and the off-road terrorists who view the desert only as something to be destroyed in pursuit of a fast buck or a cheap thrill. How can the politician Wilson expect people to vote for him as an "environmentalist" when he refuses to help protect our state's environment?

Your coverage of Sen. Pete Wilson is pathetically polite and toothless. Have you forgotten that Wilson is still the junior senator from California and will be called on to vote on some very tough issues this fall? I want to know if Wilson will support Republican attempts to cut the capital gains tax for the rich. Does Wilson agree that our deduction for state and local taxes should be taken away? Does Wilson have any proposal for balancing the federal budget? If Wilson believes that we should cut federal spending, where should the cuts come from--education, health care, social spending or defense?

Malibu's struggle to become a city has spilled over into the California governor's race, with Democratic hopeful Dianne Feinstein saying that, if elected, she would support legislation calling for a speedy incorporation of the seaside community. "In my view, the will of the people--as expressed quite clearly this past June--should be carried out," Feinstein said, in a letter sent to Malibu's unofficial City Council.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor refused Thursday to reinstate California's campaign contribution limits, prompting Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Wilson to announce he will begin seeking large donations. For the second time in less than a week, O'Connor denied without comment a request that she block last week's lower court decision striking down the contribution limits of Proposition 73 as unconstitutional.

U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson can only hope that the coming election brings him better news than did his tax man: The Republican candidate for governor had to pay $50,476 in income taxes by Monday's deadline, according to copies of his tax returns. Wilson's payment stemmed from taxes owed on the late-1989 deferred sale of properties owned by his wife, Gayle, the senator's campaign spokesman, Bill Livingstone, said.
