The le tcr Is regarded as a somewhat extraordinary one and tho Acting Governor was Inc lned to ro- gard It as conlldentlal. It was, how- ever, read during tho conference with the Rev. Wadman yesterday, and .was written to Deputy Attorney General Milverton, In reply to a letter from tho latter, asking Smith if ho had anything to Say on the subject of clemency. Smith defended tho Koreans by ap pointment of tho court. Their crime, however, was conclusively proved, and Smith took no appeal after tho Circuit Court verdict. Tho five sentenced to bo hanged for torturing their victim to death wero brought here and tho Rev. Tho reply Is rogarded as very extra- .pruinary as coming rrom counsel ror the defendants. Smith says that whllo ,M doe8 not care to express himself as , 1. .. . .... . .isnment at all or not, if it is the law of tho laud, ho considers that no caso could call for It moro than that of his clients.

Tho various Interests of tho Islands suc ceeded In preventing tho Importation of the objectionable birds, ft was claimed at that time that the Kea bird was a .Jilghly dangerous and de structive creature, for It preyed upon sheep In tho Colonies. It was stated by Havry Armltage that a bounty was paid for the extermination of the Kcas In New Zealand.
