Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1891, No. 2.

[No. 599, 1891, Sess. II.—Petition of Eruera Rangitakaiwaho and Others.]

No. 599, 1891, Sess. II.—Petition of Eruera Rangitakaiwaho and Others.

Petitioners pray that a rehearing may be granted on the Ngawakaakupe Block.

I am directed to report as follows: The Committee finds that every means provided by the law in reference to rehearings have been exercised by the petitioners. If upon the evidence, as alleged, the Court in each case gave judgment that could not be borne out, and disregarded palpable facts in support of the claims of the petitioners, then it would appear that a wrong has been done which certainly requires some looking into; but as the case is only before the Committee ex parte, it will refrain from determining the question in any way beyond referring it to the Government for inquiry into the special points raised by the petitioners.

21st September, 1891.

[Translation.]
No. 599, 1891, Sess. II.—Pukapuka-inoi a Eruera Rangitakaiwaho me etahi atu.

E Inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakaaetia he whakawa tuarua mo te Ngawakaakupe Poraka.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: Kua marama ki tenei Komiti kua whakahaerea katoatia nga huarahi o te ture e te kai-pitihana mo runga i nga whakawa tuarua. Otia mehemea e tika ana nga korero e korerotia nei i tukuna te whakataunga a te Kooti i ia whakawakanga i runga i te huarahi ekore e taea te whakamana, a i takahia nga korero tautoko a te kai-pitihana i tana take, penei e marama ana kua tau tetahi mate ki te kai-pitihana a he roea tika kia uiuia. Otira i te mea ko tetahi taha anake kei te aroaro o te Komiti e korero ana e kore te Komiti e tuku i tetahi whakataunga pehea ranei ki waho atu o tenei ara me tuku tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia uiuia nga take e korerotia nei e te kai-pitihana.
