Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Herewini Tamahori and 66 Others

Report on Petition of Herewini Tamahori and 66 Others.

The petitioners make numerous charges of inefficiency and misconduct against the Native Resident Magistrate at Waiapu, and pray for his removal from office.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That, while the allegations of the petitioners are of such a character as to prevent the Committee from arriving at any definite conclusion on the subject, the evidence before them goes to show an unsatisfactory state of things in the district. And the charges against Mr. Campbell seem sufficiently grave to warrant a thorough inquiry upon the spot by some impartial and judicious individual, having no connection with the district or with the Government. The Committee recommend that steps be taken by the Executive Government accordingly.
