No. 191 of 1882.—Petition of Horomona Paatu and 8 Others.
Petitioners pray that Crown grants may be issued to them for the following Native reserves:—New River, Aparima, Centre Island, Colac Bay, Paihi, Wakapatu, Waimatuku, Te Anau, and Popoti. They also complain that three acres of land at Otautau, promised in 1874, have not been given to them yet.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the Commitee has examined the member who presented the petition, and otherwise endeavoured to procure additional evidence; but, no further light having been thrown on the subject-matter of the petition, the Committee can only reaffirm the report originally brought up.
No. 191 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Horomona Paatu me etahi atu e 8.
E Inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakaputaina he karauna karaati kia ratou mo etahi Rahui Maori ara:—mo Nu Riwa, Aparima, Ruapuke, Koraki Pei, Paihi, Wakapatu, Waimatuku, Te Anau, me Popoti. E whakahe ana hoki ratou mo te kore kaore ano kia hoatu kia ratou etahi eka e toru i whakaaetia i te tau 1874.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Kua uiuia e te komiti te mema nana tenei pukapuka-inoi i tuku ki te Whare, a i whai hoki te komiti kia riro mai ano etahi korero ke atu, engari kihai i tau he maramatanga ki runga ki nga take o te pukapuka-inoi. No reira heoi ano ta te komiti he whakapuaki i te ripoata tuatahi.
