Considerable progress has been made with the repairs to Merchant street. In some places the roadway will be very narrow. Within the last few days we quoted some of the boss lies that foreign papers have told about Hawaii, but that is not telling lies ourselves, as the Government organ would imply. The "Gazette," having got worsted in its editorial due with the "Bulletin has now turned its attention to the reprint columns of the Advertiser. Better look at home, neighbor. Tns "Gazette's" reprint matter does not seem to have much application to Hawaii or Hawaiian interests. One day we find in its columns an article on '.'West India Venison," a few days later "A Fish Story," and next appears "A Shark Story." Marshal Kaulukou believes it to be in the interest of good government and the -cause of reform to retain in service all police officers who have proved themselves competent and reliable. Somebody does not agree with the Mar shal. However, the latter may rest as sured that the general public is with him. THE AHUNA ESTATE. The Ijiw in Cfelna Respecting Distri bution of Estates.

We do not hold ourselves responsible for the statements made, or opinions expressed by our correspondents. Can Those Things Be? Ed. P. C. Advertiser- Sir : I received this morning from one of Honolulu's citizens in blue, a paper entitled "Exe cution," and signed by Police Justice Dayton, attached to which was this note : Police Court. J. W. Luning 1 v. Chas. Michlels.) F. Pahia, Esq., Deputy Marshal: Sir: You will please execute the execu tion in the above case by making a levy upon the cornet of the defendant, in his possession. Chas. Creighton, Attorney, for plaintiff. I never doubted that Shylock would endeavor to exact his pound of flesh, but I did not think that even an Hawaiian lawyer, who in some respects surely has no peer, could be a party to an act of such ineffable meanness as that required to be done by the Deputy Marshal. Mr. Creighton and his highly respectable client, of course, were aware before that elegant effusion ("execute the execu tion" is worthy of the client and must surely be his copyright) was penned, that I was to take part ia the Joran con cert to-morrow night, and in directing the levy against the cornet they hoped one of two things, either to make it im possible for the programme already an nounced to be carried out, and thus to injure people who have only the mis fortune to be, like myself, musical artists, or to extort the money unjustly claimed from others than myself, because they know not only that I have passed my word never to pay Mr. Luning's out rageous claim, but that I intend to keep it. If I had been dealing with people moved by a sense of right, or who had ever experienced the thrill which fol lows the performance of a generous act, I might have asked why they could not have stayed their execution until after the concert. But to a client more re markable than the ornithorynchus, even if that creature had been more nearly allied to the reptile class, and to a young attorney who still prefers to do a sharp thing than a wise one, the opportunity they have seized must afford them un bounded satisfaction. What matters to such men that the Joran family may be compelled to break faith with the pub lic. How foreign to their natures must be the performance of social duties. A word or two? Mr. Editor, about the facts of the case of which the execution is the outcome may be instructive. Mr. Luning sued me in the Police Court for $100, the balance of the sum of $150, the amount of his claim against me for ser vices rendered in making an inventory of goods that were saved from the fire at my store. When the case was called I was not ready with my defense, and therefore I applied to the judge for an adjournment. This was refused for no reason given. Mr. Luning was repre sented by Mr. Creighton, I conducted my own defense. Mr. Luning swore he was engaged to make the inventory; that he was occupied on the work two and a half days, and that he claimed $150 for his services that is at the rate of $1,440 per month of 24 working days ! Although it was proved that the insur ance companies, who were interested in the matter equally with myself, paid their representative for the same work $50, yet in the face of that fact and that there was no independent testimony of the value of the work and of my direct evidence that there fwas no agreement to pay Mr.JLuning any particu ticular the Justice decided in Mr. Lun ing's favor, holding, I presume, that the claim was proper because it was sworn to by the person interested. Plaintiff must be sorry he did not put his claim at $1,500, as by equally good law he would have got a verdict in his favor all the same. After such law I was not surprised that the cornet I am a cor netist by profession was demanded, so that I should be left without even the means of making a living. Surely this is the only country where judgment is recorded as one step in a case and the next deprives the unfortunate litigant of the means of satisfying such judgment. Can it really be that a man' tools, the implements he uses in his business, can be taken from him. I am too poor to own a bed, but have the misfortune to possess a little wearing apparel. Are my clothes to be taken also, Mr. Day ton. (You signed the execution; did you peruse the instructions to the Mar shal also?) If so, will you give me timely notice, so that I can provide a few ti leaves and practice the art of making a malo ? I hope to have the pleasure of filling my part of the programme at the con cert to-morrow night, despite the un generous attempt to prevent me. I trust the public will show their ap preciation of the exceptionally great skill of the Joran family. It has been my reat privilege to have heard Eu rope's greatest executants on the piano and violin, yet I do not hesitate in as suring the public of Honolulu that the Joran family as executants can fairly claim to rank with these. The opportu nities of hearing first-class artists here are so few and rare that it is to be hoped that that which is offered to us all to morrow night will not be missed by any one of us who has the welfare of the art we love so well at heart. I am, yours respectfully, Chas. Michjels. Honolulu, October 7th. LATEST NEWS. A Washington special of September 22d says: A gentleman just returned from Philadelphia said to-night: "I would not be surprised if General Sher idan w'ould turn up as an emergency candidate for the Presidential nomina tion at the next Republican National Convention. The ovation he received as he rode at the head of the military pro cession on Friday last, and again when he stood reviewing the passing column, was not lost upon the Republican leaders present at t the centennial ceremonies. That demonstration for Sheridan was s spontaneous, and was an unmistakeable evidence of the popularity of the man. Sheridan himself would shrink from becoming a candidate, but suppose the convention should be forced to nominate him. I was told that Roscoe Conkling had openly expressed a preference for Sheridan and. had declared a purpose to take the field for him if nominated. I was also told that a movement is quietly being made up to secure delegates for the Lieutenant General in Pennsyl vania and other States, so that when the proper time comes Sheridan's name may be sprung with such enthusiasm and numerical support as will stampede the convention into placing it at the head of the national ticket. Sheridan doesn't expect it, but I am confident he is in great danger of being made the con testant of Grover Cleveland in 1888 for the Presidency." A Beyrut letter to the New York "Tribune," September 18th, gives an ac count of a remarkable mosl em revival, which received its first impulse from Constantinople about two years ago and is rapidly spreading throughout the Ot toman Empire. At the outset orders were issued for closing all schools sup ported by foreigners which did not have special grants from the Sultan. As time went on the movement extended to European and American schools of all kinds, Moslem children being pro hibited by law from receiving instruc tion from foreigners. At the same time Turkish schools were opened in towns and villages, and the children were made to attend them by compulsory statutes. Side by side with this Otto man educational movement there has been a religious revival. The mosques have been repaired, renovated and decorated. New places of worship have been opened, and the shrines of Moslem saints have been multiplied. The Turk is described as conducting this revival not in a fantastic spirit, but in a prac tical, business-like way, for the sake of consolidating his political power and re invigorating his influence in Asia. The revival is costing him a good round sum, but he is apparently well satisfied with the investment. The New York "Tribune's" Wilkes barre special of September 21st, says: There is every prospect that the strike of the coal miners in the Lehigh region will be an obstinate and protracted one. The outlook on the miners' side of the trouble is for a long continuance of the suspension of wrork. They are taking their tools from the mines as fast as they are allowed to enter to get them. The Hungarians in the Panther Creek valley have made application to the railroad company for two freight cars to load their tools so that they might leave the region. Altogether 22,000 men are out. A movement has been started in Lake county, Florida, which is rapidly spread ing all over the State, for the organiza tion of a shippers' union to regulate the sales and shipments of oranges, lemons and other fruits. The plan is to dispense with the present commission men in the in the northern and western cities and place there instead, entrusted agents of the union. The Department of State at Washing ton furnishes for publication a memo randum of the agreement between the United States and Spain for the recipro cal and complete suspension of all dis criminating duties on tonnage or imports into the United States and the islands of Cuba and Porto Rico, and all other countries belonging to the crown of Spain upon the vessels of the respective countries and their cargoes. The United States Minister at Madrid is authorized to negotiate so as to place the commer cial relations between the United States and Spain on a permanent footing ad vantageous to both countries. J. Q. A. Ward will receive a commis sion for a statue of Henry Ward Beecher, to be erected in Brooklyn The statue will be in bronze on a granite pedestal. The money available is $25,000, but it is expected that considerable more money will be raised, and the pedestal will be adorned with scenes from Beecher's life. J. T. Brunner, a Liberal Member of Parliament, has given $5,000 for the purpose of starting a fund to meet the material needs of Ireland, and to relieve the distress prevalent in that country. The clerks in the war office at Paris who were arrested on a charge of di vulging the. details of the mobilization of the Seventeenth Army Corps have been found innocent and released. The real offender is a person not in the em ploy of the War Department. It is reported that the Governor of Western Australia has suspended the Chief Justice of the Colony. Hon. Alex ander Campbell Onslow. The cause is not stated. Jem Smith appeared in a sparring con gest in London September 20th, defeating Jem Young.
