Proceedings of of the Kohimarama Conference, Comprising Nos. 13 to 18 of the "Maori Messenger."



On the 23rd of last month, at Meremere, Kereihi Tarapuhi, one of the old Waikato Chiefs. His friend Wiremu Te Wheoro writes—"At the 12th hour of the morning, when near death, he arose and looked up at the clouds drifting over Waikato, and then upon the waters of the river. After gazing a long time, he bade farewell in these words, 'Farewell ye shadows of the Waikato and Taupiri! Farewell ye tribes! Hold fast to kindness!' Here his farewell ceased and he fell asleep. * * * He was beloved by all the people of Waikato. They were never injured by him. All he did was for good and the suppression of evil."
