No. 466, 1899.—Petition of Taniwha.
Petitioner alleges that a portion of the purchase-money of the Ngaire Block was misappropriated by a Native agent named Charles Richardson Bayley, and prays for inquiry and relief.
I am directed to report that the Committee, having fully inquired into this matter, consider the petition of so frivolous a nature that it has no recommendation to make.
No. 466, 1899.—Pitihana a Taniwha.
E ki ana te kai-pitihana i tahaetia tetahi taha o te moni hoko o Ngaire Poraka e tetahi Kai-whakahaere mo nga Maori, ko Charles Richardson Bayley tona ingoa, a e inoi ana kia uiuia a kia whakaorangia taua mate.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, kua tino uiuia e te Komiti tenei take, a ki tana whakaaro he hanga noa iho tenei pitihana, na reira kaore kau ana kupu.
