The Laws of England, Compiled and translated into the Māori language.

§ 61

[i roto i te reo Māori]

§ 61.

If Constables were appointed in the Maori settlements, they would suppress disturbances, enforce regulations about dogs and pigs, and perform many useful services; thus obviating many of the causes of quarrel now existing.

Several of the Constables now in Auckland are Maories; and they apprehend Pakehas as well as Maories, if they do wrong. As you have already heard, all.men are alike in the eyes of the Law. There is one Law for us all. The Pakeha is not better than the Maori, nor the Maori better than the Pakeha.

For further information about Constables, their duties, and punishments for misconduct, See List of Criminal Offences, "Constable," No. 26.
