THE KAIWARRA MURDER.

WELLINGTON, August 1

The petition praying for the reprieve of Louis Chemis will be presented to the Governor at Government House at three o'clock this afternoon. The petition, which bears 8,870 signatures, will be presented by Dr Newman, and Messrs Nicholas Fernandez, W. H. Warren, and J. Maginnity.

" Our Own " wires:—" The Minister of Justice will represent the whole case to the Governor, and it will be finally considered by the Executive on Saturday. It is stated that aomftpf the evidence recently collected points to the guilt of the condemned man; while other facts are inconsistent with that theory. Probably the view I have previously indicated will be followed—viz., that the dread sentence of the law will be commuted to one of imprisonment for life. The case has created the greatest excitement in Wellington."
