HEWSON who was convicted at the last sitting of the Supreme Court for criminal assault, received his flogging on Wednesday. Witnesses were Dr HITCHINGS, the goal surgeon, Mr BIRCH, the sheriff, Mr MILLER, the goaler. No invitations were sent to the Press - in fact, the profoundest secresy was observed. We are informed that the proceeding was little better than a farce. The prescribed 25 lashings were administered, but in such a fashion as to be no real flogging. The man's back was not cut and only on shoulder blade showed the slightest marks of the lash. It is therefore not surprising that after this precious "flogging" he put his coat on and walked off as if nothing had happened. There should be an official investigation of the affair

His evidence went on to show that the land came into the possession of TUHOTUARIKI through his two wives, RANGARONGA and WHARETAWAI, both of whom he survived, retaining possession of the land himself. there being no direct living representativee of TUHOTUARIKI, the title had to be searched for in the collateral branches. His honour said he was strongly reminded of the prophet of old who was sent to bless but ended up doing the other thing..

Native Land Court Re: Pukehamoamoa. The Judge delivered his judgement. They would not split up this estate and under the existing circumstances we have determined to prohibit the alienation of this land for the present. We think we may allow it to be leased for a term of years, but unless the owners can agree as to the shares, we have decided on making the inalienable during the lifetime of Renata KAWEPO. After that the court can consider the matter further. an order. (This rather a lenghty article and I have abridged it. Anyone with an interest in this , please contact me and I will forward the complete work)
Re : Otamuri The two claimants TE MUERA & Ani KANARA asked the court to proceed with a subdivision of interest in this block, in pursuance of Sectio II of the Native Lands Act 1878. Renata KAWEPO opposed the partition on the ground that the title was analagous to Pukehamoamoa and involved the same abstract consideration. The court adjourned the matter until Wednesday next
