Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1888.

[No. 83, Sess. II., 1887.—Petition of Hori Puni and 11 Others.]

No. 83, Sess. II., 1887.—Petition of Hori Puni and 11 Others.

Petitioners pray that the island called Matiu or Soames Island may be returned to them, as they have not parted with their right to it.

I am directed to report as follows: That the allegations in the petition have not been substantiated, and the petitioners having failed to establish their claim, the Committee has no recommendation to make.

28th August, 1888

[Translation.]
No. 83, Sess. II., 1887.—Pukapuka-inoi a Hori Puni me etahi atu 11.

E inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakahokia tera Moutere a Matiu ki a ratou, no te mea kihai i hokona a ratou take ki taua whenua.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: Kihai i mana nga take e mau ana i roto i te pitihana, a i ranga i te mea kihai i taea e nga kai-pitihana te whakamana i a ratou take, kahore he kupu a te Komiti.
