Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1882.

No. 364 of 1882.—Petition of Timoti Puhipi

No. 364 of 1882.—Petition of Timoti Puhipi.

Petitioner states that in 1868 Ruaroa, near Takahue, came into the possession of John Lundon; that in 1869 or 1870 he and others had signed a conveyance to Lundon; that this was done in field or house, and not in a Court or before a Justice; that up to the present time the laud has not been paid for; that therefore he will not allow Lundon, or any one to whom Lundon may transfer the holding, to occupy the land; and he prays that he may be put into possession of the ground belonging to his ancestors.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That this is a case which can be settled only by a Court of law, the dispute being between private individuals.
