No. 557, 1903.—Petition of Paora Kawharu and 13 Others.
Petitioners pray that another hearing be granted in connection with Te Araparera Block.
I am directed to report that, as the Native Land Court gave its award on the strength of statements made by the petitioner (Paora Kawharu), and as the said award has been upheld by the Native Appellate Court, the Committee cannot see any reason to accede to the prayer of the petition; it therefore has no recommendation to make.
No. 557, 1903.—Pitihana a Paora Kawharu me etahi atu tekau ma toru.
E Inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakawakia ano a Te Araparera Poraka.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, i te mea i whakataua e te Kooti Whenua Maori tana whakatau i runga ano i nga korero a te kai-pitihana (a Paora Kawharu), a i te mea hoki kua whakauria taua whakatau e te Kooti Piira Maori, kaore rawa e kitea ana e te Komiti tetahi take e whakaaetia ai te inoi a nga kai-pitihana, no reira kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti.
