No. 141.—Piripi Maki and 3 Others.
Petitioners allege that the price agreed upon for Tapuaeruru Block, Ruatangata District, was £350, and that the only payment received by the Native owners was a horse valued at £50. They pray for payment of the balance, £300.
I am directed to report that the Committee has no recommendation to make with regard to this petition.

E ki ana nga kai-pitihana e toru rau e rima tekau pauna moni te utu i whakaaetia mo Tapuaeruru Poraka, Takiwa o Ruatangata, a heoi te utu i whiwhi nga Maori he hoiho, tona utu e rima tekau pauna moni. E inoi ana ratou kia whakaputaina atu ki a ratou te toenga, ara, te toru rau pauna moni.
