No. 320, 1899.—Petition of Ihipera Patuwai.
Petitioner prays for rehearing as to succession to Eraihia te Waerenga, deceased owner in Mataikona No. 2 Block.
I am directed to report that, as the petitioner and her sisters appear to have lost their chance of appealing against the decision of the Native Laud Court through ignorance of the law, the Committee recommends that this petition be referred to the Government, with a view to giving them an opportunity of being heard in support of their claims.
