No. 283, 1898.—Petition of E. Gallagher and 47 Others.
Petitioners pray that Section 15, Block IX., Te Aroha (Morgantown), which still remains in the hands of the Natives, may be purchased by the Government, in order that secure titles may be granted to Europeans holding sections therein.
I am directed to report that the Committee has no recommendation to make with regard to this petition.
No. 283, 1898.—Pitihana a E. Gallagher me etahi atu e wha tekau ma whitu.
E inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia hokona e te Kawanatanga a Tekihana 15, Poraka IX., Te Aroha (Morgantown), e toe tonu nei ki nga Maori, kia taea ai te whakaputa etahi taitara tino whai mana ki nga Pakeha e noho ana i runga i taua whenua.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti mo runga i tenei pitihana.
