From Taiaroa. Discusses a meeting held at Otago Heads which dealt with issues arising from the South Island land sales, including the breaches of contract resulting from the sales, such as the non-allocation of the `tenths' [reserves of up to 6000,000 acres to be set aside for Maori in the Otago Block], no setting aside of special food- gathering areas, and the unfulfilled promises made by Mr Mantell regarding the provision of schools and hospitals.

pp.115-116 [Editorial]
From Te Wananga
A criticism of the Governor's speech at the opening of Parliament. The Editor states that it was generally uninteresting and contained not much in the way of news. The newspaper disagrees with the fourth and fifth comments from the Governor concerning the relationship with Maori and the situation in the King country, and suggests that the relationship is not improving and that Tāwhiao may have a different slant on the situation to do with schools. The Editor doubts that the King country is about to break out of its `isolation'.
The article comments on the inferior skills of teachers appointed to Maori schools and how this affects the standard of education, and notes that there was nothing in the Governor's speech suggesting new legislation in regard to Maori.
