Mr. T. Parata,

Tame Parata was born at Ruapaki Island and is 59 years of age. He has sat in Parliament from 1885 to to the present. Mr. Parata is a half-caste, his father (Anglice Pratt), being the commander of an American whaler. His mother's name was Roroteke, her tribe being the Ngati-Huirapa. He has devoted himself to trying to secure land for landless Natives, and the education of the Native youth, so that Maoris and Half-Castes may eventually join with Europeans under one law and Government.

Tame Parata, 367 Returned.
Teoti Pita Mutu 182 Defeated

Votes recorded, 549.
