MATAKAOA, Wharekahika. —Ki te mea ka kawea tuaruatia

ano tenei whenua ki te aroaro o te Kooti, na ko te takiwa tika

tena me te wahi hei whakapapanga mo nga tupuna. Ko tenei

he hanga noa te mahi e korero nei i waho o te Kooti nga

tangata e tohe ana ki taua whenua.

E kore e o ki tenei putanga o te Waka nga kauwhau whaka-

papa o nga tupuna o Iharaira Te Houkamau. Engari me waiho

Ko HIMIONA HURIWAKA, o Te Papatupu Manganuiateao,

Whanganui, e whakapai ana ki te mahi a Waikato ki te whaka-

rere i te kai i nga wai whakahaurangi; engari ki tana whakaaro

me tahuri ratou ki nga Pakeha korero ai—te iwi nana i kawe

mai taua kai—ki te kore, ki tana whakaaro e kore e kaha nga

Maori ki te whakakore i taua mahi whakawai tangata.

MATAKAOA, Wharekahika. — If this case should again be

heard by the Court, that will be the proper time and place for

all parties to go into the question of ancestry. In the mean-

time, what is said by opposing claimants, out of Court, will

have no effect.

We have not space in this issue for the lineage of Iharaira Te

Houkamau. We shall endeavour to publish it in a future

issue.

HIMIONA HIKIWAKA, of Te Papatupu Manganuiateao, Wha-

nganui, approves of the temperance movement among the

Waikatos, but he thinks they should first labour to promote

temperance among the Pakehas—the people who introduced

drinking customs—otherwise, he fears, the Maoris will not be

able to resist the temptation.

HUTANA TARU, of Waipiro Bay. —Your letters have been

received.

HONERUA, of Opunake. —It is well.
