No. 185 of 1882.—Petition of Wiremu Kingi and 109 Others.
Petitioners state that they are the rightful owners of the lands called Ranginui, Rangi-a-Hinehau, and Tiraotane, in the District of Poverty Bay, the titles to which were investigated on the 2nd March, 1882, by Judges Brookfield and Puckey; and that, notwithstanding their claims, the land was adjudged to others. They pray for rehearing.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the Committee learns that this matter is now under the consideration of the Chief Judge, and has, therefore, no recommendation to make.
No. 185 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Wiremu kingi me etahi atu 109.
E Ei ana nga kai-pitihana ko ratou nga tangata tika no ratou nga whenua e kiia nei ko Ranginui, ko Rangai-a-Hinehau, me Tiraotane i roto i te Takiwa o Papati Pei; i whakawakia i te 2 o nga ra o Maehe, 1882 e nga Kai-whakawa e Te Purukiwhira me Te Paki, na whakataua ketia ana o ratou take ki etahi atu.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Kua rongo te Komiti kei te whiriwhiria tenei mea i naianei e Te Tumuaki o nga Kai-whakawa, heoi kaore he kupu.
