He iwi piri pono nga iwi o Whanganui ki a te Kuini, no reira he tika kia mohio ratou e kore tetahi hunga noa atu e ahei ki te whakatu ture mo o ratou hoa tangata ki te kore e tukua he mana tika ki a ratou e pera ai ratou. Ko aua " ture'' e korero mai nei o matou hoa o Whanganui, he mea poka ke i te ture, e kore e ahei te whakamana, no konei e kore e tika kia panuitia e matou. Tera ano nga Kooti o te motu nei hei whiu i nga he katoa, me haere nga Maori ki aua Kooti, me o ratou mate, pera me te Pakeha e haere nei ki aua Kooti—e kore te Pakeha noa atu e poka noa ki te hanga ture mana.

The Whanganui Natives, as a loyal people, should know that no body of persons can pass and bring into opera- tion any laws affecting their fellow-men without legal authority to do so. The "laws" referred to by our Whanganui friends are illegal, and cannot be enforced, therefore we cannot publish them. There arc legally constituted Courts in the country for the punishment of all offences, and the Natives must learn to apply to those Courts for redress of their grievances, as the Pakehas have to do.
