No. 74, 1899.—Petition of T. H. Smith.

Petitioner complains of the treatment he has received in reference to his claims in connection with certain land in the Maketu district, and prays for settlement.

I am directed to report that the Committee find the petitioner's case is a hard one, and although his actions in the matter have not been of a businesslike nature he is entitled to consideration; it is therefore recommended that, in final settlement of all his claims, the Government should give him a free grant of the 600 acres of the Maungarangi Block referred to in the offer of settlement by the Government, as per letter addressed to petitioner dated 14th September, 1899.

11th September, 1900.
