No. 477, 1902. —Pitihana a Christopher N. Fernie me tetahi atu, o Tongoio, Haaki Pei.
E ki ana nga kai-pitihana i runga i te paahitanga o "Te Ture Whakatau Kereme Whenua Maori Whakatikatika hoki i nga Ture Whenua Maori, 1901," kua whakakorea te ruri o to ratou whenua o Arapawanui Poraka, e inoi ana ratou kia whakahokia atu te moni e £195 13s. 6d. hei whakaea i te utu o taua ruri.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia whiriwhiria paitia.
