No. 254.—Petition of Te Korowhiti Tuataka (Mrs. Douglas).

Petitioner complains of injustice done her in connection with the Waiharakeke and Okauia Block, and prays for compensation.

I have the honour to report,—
1. That in the opinion of this Committee an injustice has been done to Te Korowhiti Tuataka (Mrs. Douglas), and that through the action of the Native Land Court.
2. That as the land to which she was entitled has been sold, the only way in which justice can be done to the petitioner is by the Government granting her land.
3. That the Government should ascertain through its officers the probable value of the land of which she has been deprived, with a view of determining the compensation necessary.
4th August, 1893.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei,—
1. Ki te whakaaro a tenei Komiti kua tau tetahi mate kia Te Korowhiti Tuataka (Mrs. Douglas) a na te Kooti Whenua Maori i tau ai taua mate.
2. Notemea kua hokona te whenua i tika kia riro i aia heoi te huarahi e tau ai te tika ki te kaipitihana me tuku e te Kawauatanga tetahi whenua mona.
3. Me kimi e te Kawanatanga ra roto i ana Apiha nga utu o te whenua i tangohia i aia kia ahei ai te whakatau he pehea te rahi o nga whakaritenga e hiahiatia ana hei tuku ki te kaipitihana.
