Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1904.

[No. 824, 1903.—Petition of Horomona Rongoparae and 3 Others.]

No. 824, 1903.—Petition of Horomona Rongoparae and 3 Others.

Petitioners allege that the Aorangi Block, Takapau District, was wrongfully included in the land purchased by the Crown as the Umuopua Block, and they pray for restitution.

I am directed to report that the Committee is of opinion that the recommendation made in 1896, on a similar petition, should be given effect to—viz., that two competent persons be appointed to visit the land, in company with the Natives interested, for the purpose of determining whether the boundaries, as agreed upon when the sale to the Crown took place, have been adhered to; and if it is then found that a mistake has been made the petitioners be granted some compensation.

[Translation.]
No. 824, 1903.—Pitihana a Horomona Rongoparae me etahi atu toko-toru.

E Ki ana nga kai-pitihana ko Aorangi Poraka, i te Takiwa o Te Takapau, i whakaurua hetia ki roto ki te whenua i hokona e te Karauna e karangatia ana ko Umuopua Poraka, a e inoi ana hoki kia whakahokia taua whenua kia ratou.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro a te Komiti me whakatutuki te ripoata i mahia i te tau 1896 i runga i tetahi pitihana penei ano te ahua—ara, ki te whakaaro a te Komiti me whakatu e te Kawanatanga kia tokorua nga tangata mohio, a me haere raua me nga Maori e whai tikanga ana ki te titiro i taua poraka, kia mohiotia ai kei te haere tonu ranei nga rohe o te poraka i runga i nga rohe i whakaetia i te wa i hokona ai te poraka ki te Karauna, kaore ranei; a ki te kitea kua he nga rohe heoi me puta he utu ki nga kai-pitihana.
