TE WANANGA trapped the un-advised Maori into signing deeds he knew neither the meaning or purport of, then does the Napier office encourage resistance to that which is against equity and justice, and has lent and will lend all its strength to upset and set aside the deeds, conveyances, leases, or other engagements which could not stand for an hour in any court of judicature in Eng- land. At the same time, where deeds are in- complete by accident rather than by intention, there is no intention to embarrass the European or Native who has acted in good faith. It will be soon recog- nised that the European with deficient title who has acted honestly has no better friend than the Napier Native Office.

HE mea na matou, na te nui o nga korero a Te Hui i Putiki i Whanganui, i kore ai he wahi mo te whakapapa o nga Tupuna o te Pakeha e o ki tenei putanga o TE WANANGA.

IN consequence of our having given in full (as re- ported in the " New Zealander" newspaper) the speeches made by the chiefs and the Native Minis- ter at a meeting held at Whanganui, we have thought it advisable not to give our usual chapter of English History in this issue.

TE HUI A TE MINITA MAORI A TE HIANA I PUTIKI, I WHANGANUI. I haere a te Hiana te Minita Maori ki Whanganui, he mea hoki i kiia e o reira Maori kia haere atu aia ki reira. Ko Karaitiana Takamoana, ko Hone Pihama ma ana hoa. A he tokomaha nga Maori i hui ki te whare korero i Pu- tiki. Ahakoa he tokomaha nga Maori o Whanganui i ngaro atu ki te kuinga o te awa o Whanganui, he tini ano nga Maori i korero kia te Hiana. Ka hui te tangata, ka tu ko Mete Kingi. Ka mea, haere mai e te Minita Maori, he mea hoki kua tae koe ki te nuku o nga Motu nei, a kua pai nga Maori ki a korua tikanga ko Kawana Kerei. A kua tino whakaae nga Maori ki aua tikanga. A e pai ana a Whanganui kia kite ia te Hiana, a kia kite ano hoki ia Karaitiana Taka- moana raua ka Hone Pihama. Ka mea a Haimona Hiroti, haere mai e to Hiana ka pai koe kia haere kia kite i te tini iwi o nga Motu nei, ka pai kia haere mai ko.e ki konei, no te mea kahore kau o konei he. He pai kau i enei ra, a ka pai kia korero tatou. Ka mea a te Mawae : E he ana i a au nga tini mahi hou a te Pakeha. He Maori ahau, a ko aku mea e pai ai ko o mua mea. A kahore kau pea he pai o nga mea hou nei ki te iwi Maori. Katene : Haere mai e te Hiana, he Minita Maori koe no te tai ki te marangai, a kahore kau he kitekite atu a o konei tangata ia koe. A kua tae mai nei koe, kia roa iho to noho kia roa ai te korero ma matou kia koe. Hoani Mete: Ka pai kia kitea mai koe, kua tata hoki nga ra o te Paremata. A ka mahia nei hoki nga. mahi hou ki te awa o Whanganui. E mea ana aia, kia kaua he mahi hou ki te awa o Whanganui, i te takutai ki Putiki. He mea hoki na te waipuke i aami mai he rakau hei wahie ma te Maori ki Putiki. A tetahi kupu ana, kia kaua e whakaae noa te Kawanatanga ki te kupu tono ruuri a te tangata kotahi, kia waiho ma te tokomaha te tono mo te i ruuri ka whakaae ai te Kawanatanga, kahore ana mea atu kia pa te Kawanatanga ki te mahi ruuri whenua, i te mea

Mete Kingi : Ko te whenua rahui i Patiki mai ano i te Piriti e te Kongutu o te awa, a te awa i Kaitoke, a te pou a te Mawae. E pai ana kia mahia te awa o Whan- ganui kia hohonu. Otira kaua te waka haere ki te hii ka e utu. A kia kohi noa te Maori i te wahie paketai o te awa. E kiia ana, na te Kawanatanga te whenua i te tukutai, otira e ki ana ratou te Maori, na ratou taua whenua. E kii ana nga Maori o Whanganui, kia tu tetahi Tari ma ratou, kia pera rae te Tari i Nepia, e kiia an» hoki, e utu ana te Kawanatanga i taua Tari i Nepia. Kb te utu mo te whenua e kiia nei, ko te " Whanganui Poraka," he kotahi ano mano pauna moni, a e amuamu tonu ana nga Maori ki taua utu. He nui hoki no te whenua he iti no te moni. Kahore kau he mea a te Maori ki to utu, otira ki te mea ka kitea nga eka o taua whenua, penei ka mohiotia nga utu tika mo taua whenua e puta kia ratou, mei hokona ki te utu rite. Ki te mea e kore e utua aia, ka rapu tonu ana tamariki ki te utu mo aua eka kia puta kia ratou. Wihari Turoa : E mea ana tetahi o tatou i korero nei, kia mutu te ruuri whenua, otira e mea ana aia, kahore kau he whenua i toe, e ruuri ai te tangata. I te mea hoki, e kaika ana te hoko whenua a te iwi. E hara i te Pakeha hoko te he, na nga kai tuku whenua a te Maori te he. A korero ana aia ki tana whenua i Waipakura, Te Hiana (Minita Maori) : E pai ana koutou kia karanga i au. E tika ana te kii mona, kihai nei i tae wawe mai ki Whanganui, otira, kahore kau ona mangere. I te wa ona i tu ai hei Minita Maori, aia i mea ai, kia kite aia i nga wahi katoa o nga motu nei, a kia kite aia i nga iwi katoa. Kia tu rawa ake te Paremata kua kite aia i ana tini iwi. Na reira aia i mea ai, e hara i te he nona, aia i roa nei, kihai aia i tae wawe mai ki Whanganui. E pai ana kia tae mai aia ki Whanganui nei, hei mutunga mo tana haere, i te mea e tata ana a Whanganui ki Poneke. A tetahi, e kiia ana he iwi pai te iwi o Whanganui. Mana e ata rapurapu a ratou kupu, a kia ahiahi aia ka Korero ai ano kia ratou. Karaitiana Takamoana
