NEPIA, HATAREI, AKUHATA 30, 1879.

HE tikanga tenei e kitea ana i tenei motu, ko nga

Maori whakararuraru tikanga—nga koroke turituri,

arai i nga tikanga e kake ai te motu—ko nga tu

tangata ena e ata whakaarohia ana e te Kawanatanga.

Ko aua tu tangata i manaakitia, i whakapatia, i ha-

painga ki nga turanga e whiwhi ai ratou i te rawa;

tena, ko nga rangatira noho tonu i runga i te pai me

te aroha, i uru hoki ki nga mahi whakanui i te motu,

ara i a ratou mahi tuku whenua hei nohoanga Pakeha,

ko nga tangata ena i waiho kia noho noa iho ana i

runga i te rawakoretanga. E kore matou e whaka-

pai ki tena tikanga. He mea whakanui ia i te mana

o aua tu tangata whakararuraru tikanga e nui ai

to ratou maua i roto i o • ratou iwi, e

ahei ai hoki ratou te whakakino tikanga;

NAPIER, SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1879.

IT has frequently been observed that Natives who

have made themselves the most troublesome—noisy

fellows who have striven to obstruct the progress of

settlement—have received the most consideration

from the Government. They have been petted and

flattered, and made the recipients of substantial

favors in the shape of office and accompanying emolu-

ments; whilst many peaceably disposed and loyal

chiefs, who have largely assisted in promoting the

settlement of the country by encouraging the sale of

land, have been allowed to remain in obscurity and,

in some cases, comparative poverty. We do not

believe in a policy like that. It has always increased

the influence and power for evil of such malcontents,

and has given rise to a sense of injustice in the
