No. 254, 1889.—Petition of Michael Mullooly.
Petitioner states he purchased a block of land called Uawa from certain Natives to whom it had been awarded, and he spent a considerable sum of money on it. He alleges that John A. Wilson, Government Land Purchase Commissioner, caused the said land to be gazetted under a certain Act, thereby preventing petitioner from completing his title to the said land. He prays for redress in consequence of the action of the said J. A. Wilson.
I have the honour to report as follows: That the opinion of the Committee is that this petition be referred to the Government for consideration.
