No. 122 of 1882.—Petition of Major Te Wheoro (No. 2).
Petitioner prays that a Crown grant may be issued to him and his hapu for Karioi, and that the grant should contain a clause making the land inalienable except on lease.
I am directed to report as follows:—
The lands of Karioi were petitioned about in 1879 by Kereopa, Hone Hone, and others, and reported upon by this Committee in 1880. Since that time the question of ownership has cropped up. The prayer of the petitioner seems reasonable provided the petitioners are the rightful owners. The Committee recommends Government to ascertain who the true owners are, and have the land granted accordingly.
No. 122 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Meiha Te Wheoro (Nama 2).
E Inoi ana te kai-pitihana kia whakaputaina he Karauna Karaati ki a ratou ko tona hapu mo Karioi, a me uru he tikanga here ki roto ki taua Karaati, ka mutu tonu te mea e mana ko te riihi anake.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Ko nga whenua o Karioi i pitihanatia i te tau 1879 e Kereopa Honehone me etahi atu, a i whai kuputia e tenei Komiti i te tau 1880. No muri nei kua tipu ake tetahi raruraru mo te tino whaitaketanga ki taua whenua. E tika ana ano te inoi a te kai-pitihana mehemea ra ko nga kai-pitihana ake nga tangata e tika ana ki te whenua. E mea ana tenei Komiti kia rapua e te Kawanatanga nga tangata no ratou ake te whenua a ka whakaputa i tetahi Karauna Karaati mo reira.
