No. 152, 1900.—Petition of Thomas Toms.

Petitioner, a half-caste, asks for restitution of rights to certain lands granted to his father, mother, and himself by the Ngatitoa Tribe, which lands have now passed into the possession of his father's family by a second wife, a European.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition should be referred to the Government for inquiry.

[Translation. ]
No. 152, 1900.—Pitihana a Tamati Tame (Thomas Toms).

He hawhe-kaihe te kai-pitihana, a e tono ana kia whakahokia atu ki a ia ona tika me ona mana ki etahi whenua i hoatu ki a ia me tona papa, me tona whaea, e te iwi o Ngatitoa, na ko aua whenua kua riro i te whanau a tona papa raua ko tana wahine tuarua, he Pakeha.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki e Kawanatanga kia uiuia.
