HARDEN The petition of taxpayers for im provement of the King Street bridge was referred by the Minister of the Interior to Mr. Howell, Sup erintendent of Public Works. The latter sends this answer to Min ister King : "While in general it must be admitted that the bridge is not as wide as the street, yet the obstruc tion to travel is far less than repre sented in the petition. "Although there is no eidewalk on the makai side, traffic i3 very seldom so congested that fcot pas sengers cannot with reasonable safety cross over to the sidewalk on the mauka side. "The petition avers that there is not room when the car is on t)ie bridge for teams to pass each other in opposite directions on the makai eide. "I am surprised that there should be any attempt to pass in opposite directions on the same side of the bridge. The travel in one direction should be confined to one side of the bridge and the travel in the other direction to the other sitfe. "The bridge is old and should be replaced by a permanent steel bridge within two years, and it seems to me in the nature of an extravagance to go to the expense of widening the bridge now, when the whole thing must be replaced in a short time. "In comparison I would cite the case of a bridge in Chicago over which there is probably twenty times the traffic of King street, where all teams and horse cars have to cross in a single line in each direction. "The approaches to the bridge sidewalk on the mauka side have already been put in good order, and the public can easily afford to get along with the present incon veniences until the Government is able to put in a creditable bridge." The reformers, headed by Dr. Emerson, intend to "keep everlast ingly at it" in this matter. ONE ON JUDGE FOSTER. A Man Whom He Once Convicted Was His Client. Judge Foster was defending a Chinaman in the District Court yesterday for selling che fa tickets. During the progress of the trial, David Kaapa, a policeman, was put on the stand, and told his part of the story. It was directly against the Chinaman, and on the cross - examination Judge Foster tried to tangle him up. At last, TCaana said he did'nt know any thing much about the character of the Chinaman, except tnat ne naa "been convicted for the same offence by Judge Foster, when he was on the bench." A very audible smile went round the Court room, and the Judge lost the case, his client being fined $150. Music and Mirth.

A Monowai steerage passenger, without $50, will return to San Francisco by the Dimond as a sail or. The man said at the Police Station that he had $150 when he Rtenned aboard the liner at the chilly city. He recited that all of this sum, excepting 5?o, was lost gambling on the Monowai. The man was certain ne naa masierea the mysteries of draw poker and was very desirous of trying his skill in Honolulu. Uealani Boat Club.

Harden, who was recently deported from Honolulu by the I'rovisional Government for agitating a revolution, had a fistic contest last night, savs the Exam iner of the 11th. His opponent was a full-blooded Hawaiian, John Kaimi. The griev ance was that both sought the af- fections of the Fame girl, Senorita Carlotta Rosa Cahassa of ban An- tone, Mexico. The cirl i3 about eiehteen vear3 of age and her parents own a large cattle ranch near San Antone. She has been in San Francisco about four months on a pleasure trip and j a. T" -: I n was nere mai ene met ivaiuji, u gallant son of the sunny islands. He made love to her in true Ha waiian fashion and his affections were in part reciprocated and he believed he would be able to marry the senorita and take her to the islands with him until Harden ap peared on the scene. Harden was introduced to Miss Carlotta at the Park two weeks ago, and it seemed to be a case of love at first sight. This greatly displeased Kaimi, who made known his anger and oflered fight. Harden, accustomed to manv encounters on battlefields and elsewhere, advised the young Hawaiian to accept the inevitable, or if he would not do so, to arrrnge a battle under Marquis of Queens bury rules. This was done after much difficulty, for Kaimi insisted on fighting island fashion, a com bination of fighting, gouging and kicking. The encounter took place at one o'clock this morning at a saloon on Mission street. Harden weighed 135 and Kaimi 145 pounds. Sec onds were present and the police did not learn of the affair. In the first round Harden opened vigorously with his left and landed heavily on Kaimi s nose, drawing blood. Kaimi attempted to butt and got into chancery, where he was engaged until the end of the round. In the second round Kaimi land ed two heavy body blows, Harden retaliating with a hard one on the aw. The fourth and fifth rounds Har den followed Kaimi around the ring, landing wherever he pleased without difficulty. Kaimi was vir tually beaten. Ir the last round the Kanaka forgot all rules and be gan a rough-and-tumble ngnt, in which he was bested again. How about it?
