Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1879, No. 1.

[No. 213, 1878.—Petition of Ereatara R. Rangaihoro and Others.]

No. 213, 1878.—Petition of Ereatara R. Rangaihoro and Others.

Petitioners state that the Government claim some land belonging to them, and that they want the thing settled. They pray that a Judge of the Supreme Court may be sent to them for that purpose.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That, in view of the vague nature of the petition, and in the absence of evidence, the Committee have no recommendation to offer.

5th August, 1879.

[Translation.]
Te Pukapuka-inoi a Ereatara R. Rangaihoro me etahi atu.

E ki ana nga kai-inoi, e ki ana te Kawanatanga, no ratou tetahi o a nga kai-inoi whenua, koia i tono ai ratou kia whakaritea tetahi tikanga. E tono ana ratou kia tukua atu tetahi Kaiwhakawa o te Hupirimi Kooti hei whakaoti.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei atu ki te Whare:—

No runga i te kore marama o te ahua o te pitihana me te ngaro o etahi korero whakaatu ki te Komiti, kahore tahi he kupu tohutohu ki te Whare.

Akuhata 5, 1879.
