Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1902.

[No. 239, 1902. —Petition of Hoone Mokena and 15 Others.]

No. 239, 1902. —Petition of Hoone Mokena and 15 Others.

Petitioners allege that certain settlers in Mangakahia district have impounded stock belonging to Natives which had wandered on to unfenced land leased by the said settlers, and they pray that some consideration may be shown to them, and that the settlers be compelled to protect their land by fencing.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition be referred to the Government, with a view to bringing the case under the notice of the Hon. the Native Minister as early as possible.

18th September, 1902.

[Translation.]
No. 239, 1902. —Pitihana a Hoone Mokena me etahi atu tekau ma rima.

E ki ana nga kai-pitihana tera etahi Pakeha o te takiwa o Mangakahia kua whawhao i nga kara rehe a nga Maori ki roto ki te pauna i te mea i haere aua kararehe ki runga ki nga whenua kore taiapa kei aua Pakeha e riihi ana, a e inoi ana kia whakaarohia ratou a kia whakahaerea he tikanga e taiapatia ai e aua Pakeha o ratou whenua kia kore ai e takatakahia.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga, me te mea atu kia tirohia tenei keehi e te Minita mo nga Mea Maori i tetahi wa tata.
