Thursday-Wairoa

The Native Land Court, under Judges BARTON and Von STURMER has sat continuously since the Court opened on the 8th instant, and a large number of succession claims have been dealt with and orders made in favour of the successful claimants, but the natives have been somewhat dilatory, in consequence of which a good many claims have been adjourned or struck out.

Yesterday morning the Court commenced on the rehearsing of the subdivision cases adjourned from GISBORNE, the first case being the HERCHERETAU block, portion of Mr Hunter BROWN'S run, in which the native owners appealed against the partition made by Judge WILSON at the last sitting of the Court at WAIROA, by which partition their principal settlement at WHAKAI, taking in the church and burial ground, was included in the division allotted to Mr BROWN.

.....more..then the court gave judgment this forenoon, awarding to Mr Brown 2669 acres (out of 8820 comprising the whole block), as an equivalent for the three and a quarter shares he had purchased, the native retaining the residue (including settlements, lagoon, &c) of the land, which is made inalienable.

The partition is looked upon as a very satisfactory one by all parties, and Mr BROWN will now get a Land Transfer Act title for his portion.

Great credit is due to Mr J.P.HAMLIN for his efficient management of the case.

The many friends of the Rev. Brother JOSEPH, formerly in charge of the Catholic schools, on the Shakespeare Road, will regret to learn of his ill health which shows no sign of permanent improvement.

The damp quarters in which the Marist Brothers dwell at CHRISTCHURCH, coupled with the continuous strain of teaching and conducting a large establishment, appears to have completely broken down his constitution, and his recovery from his recent severe indisposition is painfully slow.

The Foresters and printers of NAPIER mustered strongly yesterday to attend the funeral of the late Henry Charles Leigh YATES, who died in his 29th year, and who when living worked as a printer and was a member of Court Sir Charles Napier, A.O.F.

The disease to which he ultimately succumbed only manifested itself within a comparatively recent period, up to which time he was always regarded as a healthy young man, and he took an active part in cricket, football, and other athletic sports.

He was a native of NAPIER, and was apprenticed in the HERALD office, where he rose to be foreman of the night room, highly respected by his fellow workmen and by his employers.

Some time since, desiring to give up night work, he obtained employment on the Telegraph, where again he succeeding in winning the esteem of his employer and his fellow workmen.

When he became to ill to leave his house, Mr KNOWLES kindly allowed him to have a printers' "case" at his home, where almost up to the last he did a little to help in supporting his wife and family. His fellow workmen also assisted him by weekly contributions from their earnings.

The Anglican burial service was read at the grave yesterday by the Rev. De Bert Hovell, and the Foresters' funeral service was read by J.G.GILBERD.

It is the intention of the printers of Napier to erect a memorial stone over the grave of their departed comrade.

The deceased leaves a wife and family, a mother, and several brothers and sisters to mourn his death.
DEATH

YATES-At Enfield Road Napier, on 25th September, Henry Charles Leigh Yates, aged 29 years.
The funeral will leave his late residence at 2.30 p.m. on Sunday. Friends will please accept this intimation.

AMERICA to NZ-AUCKLAND

There is (says the N.Z.HERALD) an American lady-a Mrs CURTIS, a widow residing in AUCKLAND at present, who, it appears came to New Zealand at the solicitation of relatives living in NAPIER, who represented to her they were wealthy, and that if she came to NAPIER she could live in comparative comfort the remainder of her days.

But, to her dismay, upon her arrival in NAPIER, instead of the luxurious home she so confidently anticipated, she found her principal relation quartered in the NAPIER REFUGE.

Her situation was indeed, a pitiable one-a stranger in a strange land, without means and without friends who could assist her.

Finally the Mayor of Napier, who knew her friends, and the lamentable predicament they had placed her in through their misrepresentations, generously came to her assistance and paid her passage to AUCKLAND and gave her £1 to assist her for a few days.

She appeals for aid, sufficient to get her to HONOLULU, where she has friends who will assist her from there on.

Mr J.D.CONNOLLY, the American Consul, will receive contributions from those disposed to give.

He has already received several sums from a number of those to whom the circumstances of the case have been explained.
HBH 1890 Sept 30 Alexander

Ireland to Auckland

The centenarian George SCOTT died last night at his son's residence in PONSONBY.

He was born in DONEGAL one hundred and one years ago, and saw the French land in Ireland in 1898.

Scott came to New Zealand in 1845.

He was wonderfully strong up to the time of his death, and up to the last few days regularly smoked his pipe.

His death is believed to have resulted from sheer old age, as he had no illness.

Some days ago a well known country settler had laid a wager that he would ride one horse 120 miles in 24 hours. Yesterday the back of time instructed the stakeholder that he would forfeit his deposit of £5 rather than complete the wager, and the deposit money was handed to Mr A. LEAN, the backer of the horse.

Ormondville Farmers' Club have adopted a resolution thanking Mr J.H.COLEMAN for his opposition on the Rabbit Board to the introduction of stoats and weasels into Hawke's Bay. The members of the club were of the opinion that the cure for the rabbit pest would be worse than the disease.

A KAEIOI correspondent sends an account of a gathering there to bid farewell to Mr Jonathan OSTLE, who for the past three years has been engaged on Government road contracts in that district. During the evening a number of songs were given and speeches made, in which he was assured of the esteem and goodwill of his fellow-workers and the neighboring settlers.

Mr OSTLE leaves for ENGLAND, en route for America, where he has obtained a more lucrative appointment.

Our Waipawa Correspondent writes under yesterday's date: -

There was a large attendance at Mr A. McKAY's funeral yesterday.

About eight horsemen came from TAMUMU, and old settlers from all parts of the district flocked in, anxious to pay a tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased.

Intense indignation is felt throughout the district at the action of the coroner in insisting on holding an inquest, in defiance of the wishes of the relatives and the medical adviser of the deceased.

I hear that the matter will form the subject of further enquiry, and that Drs REED and GODFRAY are taking steps to have the matter thoroughly sifted.

Mr Mc KAY was conscious after the accident, and up to his death, gave a clear account of the affair to his relatives and his medical adviser, who certified to the cause of death.

The Napier Bowling Club will open their season on the new green in Dalton Street Napier.

At the end of last season the club decided to obtain a ground of their own in a central position, and about three months ago a few of the members purchased something over half an acre from the Borough council for £500.

Hawke's Bay Presbytery met yesterday, the Rev H.W. JOHNSTON presiding.

The chief business was the hearing of the "trials" for ordination of the Rev. Middleton RYBURN, who has received a call from the GISBORNE church.

Mr RYBURN acquitted himself to the entire satisfaction of the Presbytery, the matter and manner of his discourses giving promise of a most successful ministry.

The Revs.S.DOUGLAS, MEANEE, and W.RAEBURN, of WAIROA, were appointed commissioners of the Presbytery to ordain and induct Mr RYBURN to the GISBORNE church on the 19th instant. The Rev. H.W.JOHNSTON was appointed to moderate in a call to the Rev. W.STEWART, at WOODVILLE, on Wednesday next.

Now that the sea wall on the Marine Parade, Napier has been extended another fifteen chains north, it would be well that the road and footpath should be completed and formed for that distance. As it is at present, the northern end of the parade presents a very unsightly appearance.

One of Messrs SMITH and PROVIS' cart horses caused some excitement at the Spit yesterday morning. The animal shied and went over the side between the two bridges near the Union Company's offices. The driver went in after his steed, and after some trouble the dumb animal was got on shore again.

Yesterday was "pension day," and the Customs office was surrounded by veterans come to receive the dole which a more or less grateful country metes out to them.

Mr PATTEN is the Imperial pension's officer for NAPIER, and in his district are 34 Imperial pensioners who draw an aggregate sum of from £600 to £70 annually.

The largest of the pensions is £40 per annum, and the smallest £10.

HBH 1890 October 3 WATSON James

Gisborne-Thursday


Mr James WATSON's death must have come to him in gentle guise. He had been to see a relative in the hospital in the morning, and in the afternoon went to stay at a house of a friend. He complained of feeling out of sorts, and instead of going out sat in an easy chair.

Later he was found dead, still sitting in the chair, and it seems evident that he passed away without a struggle of any kind. An inquest was held today, when medical evidence was given to the effect that death was due to aneurism.

The jury returned a verdict of "died from natural causes."

The Napier Operatic Society have at length succeeded, after considerable trouble, in securing the services of Mr Harry HALL, of WELLINGTON, for the purpose of representing the part of the goblin steward in "Rip Van Winkle" next week.

Mr HALL is the son of the late Mr J.L. HALL, whose name was for many years a household word in New Zealand theatrical circles, and the undoubted ability of the latter gentleman as an able and conscientious actor is apparent in the junior members of the family.

Mr Harry HALL played the part of the dwarf steward when "Rip" was presented by the Wellington Operatic Society in February last.

He leaves for Napier on Saturday morning and will arrive here in time for the next rehearsal of "Rip Van Winkle," which will be held in the Theatre Royal tomorrow evening at half past 7 o'clock.

Half an hour later Captain PREECE resumed his seat and Sergeant CULLEN reported that the boys had been soundly birched in the interim.

On complainant entering the box, she commenced a voluble history of the 16 months over which her married life had extended.

Mr John BURNS is going back to the workshop. Mr Burn's constituents (writes the London correspondent of the Argus) are failing to pay up. They promised to give him £3 a week while he represented BATTERSEA on the County Council. But the funds are done, and as Mr BURNS cannot afford to take money from other sources, he drops his political and other work and goes back to his engineering. It is not a creditable thing to the working men of Battersea

The newly formed branch of the Independent Order of RECHABITES appears to be making headway. It has not been in existence quite three months, yet at the meeting last night the secretary reported 22 members on the books up to the end of last month.

The financial report was not less satisfactory, showing a good credit balance carried to the sick and funeral fund for the time the Tent has been working.

Prior to the meeting of adults a juvenile branch was formally instituted by D.D.C.R. BRO. A.H.HERON, who then installed the following officers: -

C.R, Bro. J.THOMSON

William H. LULY-arrested on a similar charge, had his bail estreated.

The Registrar of Electors in his effort to purge the Napier Rolls has sent out a great number of objections. To some of them he has received very peculiar replies. One uncivil elector merely returned the objection laconically endorsed "this is a lie."

Captain TURNER, surveyor, who is laying off the new dray road between WAIROA and NAPIER, and who has the reputation of being one of the best road surveyors in the colony, visited here a few days ago........more....then Captain RUSSELL thanked by WAIROA people for a work he has taken a great interest in.

While we import bacon from Canterbury we cannot expect a big show of live pigs.

Mr W PREBBLE fined £2 by his Honor the Chief Justice for not answering to his name when called upon to serve upon the common jury in the Supreme Court yesterday.

Mr J BENNETT excused from serving on the grounds that he was judge at the park Club's races.

Mr J LOPDELL because he was clerk of the course

Mr M RYAN because he had the contract for the publican's booth at the meeting

Messrs A.D.NEWTON, W FULFORD, John RENOUF were all excused on the ground that the notices had only been left at their homes, and they were away working in the country and had no knowledge of them
Evidence of the service officers were taken in each instance.

Mr J H WILLIAMS applied to be excused on the ground that he had left 16 shearers at work on his station, and it was important that he should be with them.

His Honor said that supposing a small shopkeeper asked to be excused on the ground that he had no one to attend to his business during his absence, he could not excuse him. He thought the cases parallel. Only illness, humanity, or public convenience could be considered, and it was on the latter ground that he had excused the officials of the racing club. Mr WILLIAMS was not excused, but was afterwards challenged by counsel for the defence in the case of the Crown v BRASSEY.

In the case of Messrs J.S.GREENFIELD, J GARNETT, H.W.G.HENDERSON, W EVANS,
W E BECK, and R,W, HANSARD were also challenged by defendant's counsel, and Mr W BECK was challenged by the Crown Prosecutor.

HBH 1890 October 17 Port Presbyterian Church

A social gathering and entertainment was held in the Port Presbyterian Church last evening. There was a large attendance, the church being quite full. The chair was taken by the Rev. S.DOUGLAS, who remarked in a few brief comments that the object of the entertainment was to endeavour to wipe off an old church debt, a very considerable portion of which had been paid off during the past year. He also spoke of the necessity which existed for a new church building to take the place of the present structure. This however, he thought was a matter for future consideration, and the consummation of his desire could scarcely be hoped for yet.

Musical portion of the entertainment opened with a pretty pianoforte duet by:

Misses MURRAY
Mrs COBB-song
Mr Mc CONNELL contributed a humorous Scotch reading
Mr J MUIR sang a vocal solo in fine style and had to respond to an encore
Mr W. EDWARDS was also encored for his excellent song-He also responded later on in the evening by another song
Mesdames WATKINS and CHICKEN were heard to advantage with a very pleasing duet
A pretty song, well sung by Miss REDWARD was followed by a charming pianoforte solo by Miss HOLT for which she was loudly applauded.
Mr W FOSTER gave a recitation
Mr PUFLETT-sang
Pianoforte duet by Misses DENHOLM
Mrs FLETCHER-sang

Mr COBB and Mr MUIR contributed songs

Mrs FLETCHER another song
Misses A.DENHOLM and HOLT played most of the accompaniments.

A hearty vote of thanks to MR NAPHTALI who kindly lent the piano and to all those who assisted.

At the Resident court yesterday before Dr. SPENCER J.P

Frederick de LACY fined 10s and costs for drunkenness.

C.J. JONES a first offender dismissed with a caution.
Mr G C REES writes in the Wanganui Chronicle:-

"In the year about 1850, when residing with Mr Samuel CLARKE at WAIPUNA, on the TARANAKI River, near PANMURE, a Maori from TAUPO happened to be staying there. This Maori was about 45 years of age, and a very intelligent specimen of the Maori in those days; but I forgot his name. He told Mr Clarke and me that he was invited amongst his people to a feast at TAUPO at Te HEUHEU'S place, where there was to be a moa supplied as part of the feast. However, he said that his party did not arrive until the feast was over; but he saw the skin of the moa lying in a large kit in one of the whares. He said the skin was as large as the hide of a big ox, and covered with tufts of hairy feathers; long hairy-like feathers hung down from the head, with a appearance of horse hair. He afterwards drew a moa on a slate, describing it as about 14ft high and generally standing on one leg, and facing the wind, making springs of 30ft or more at a time. A kick from the moa, he said, would kill an!
y man. The Maoris caught them with snares made of stout ropes."

HBH 1890 October 18 65th REGIMENT

The following story is going the rounds: - The 65th Regiment was 20 years out of sight, till at last the London Punch discovered it to be in NEW ZEALAND.

That island (says a writer in the Sydney Morning Herald) at the time- from 25 to 35 years ago was the very pick of stations in the British Empire for officers without means, and men who could turn their hands to some use when their discharges were purchased or their terms of office expired.

The corps finding itself in such clover asked nothing better than to be left alone-a wish which the easy-going authorities of the Horse Guards discovered and good-naturedly complied with. The result was that officer, non-commissioned officers, and men became a sort of commune or mir.

The full privates were let away for months at a stretch to plough and delve and blast, a small percentage of the earnings-so at least it was whispered-finding its way upward, being promoted, in fact. These knowing lads made themselves popular with the natives, too, so that in the sixties, when trouble commenced in TARANAKI, the Maoris would bawl out, "Lie down, ickedy-fifth; we're going to shoot."

No wonder the new troops that came in the wake of General CAMERON called the 65th the "Civil Maoris," and no wonder that many a stiff stand-up fight in the buff behind the canteen was the result.

It was 48 years ago last Wednesday since the Jane Gifford and Duchess of Argyle cast anchor in the waters of the WAITEMATA with the pioneer party of Scotch settlers for Auckland. The two ships sailed from GREENOCK, and both arrived on the 9th October 1842.

The Duchess went aground off RANGITOTO, and the Jane Gifford got in first. There were some 295 souls on board the latter, and as many on board the former.

Over a thousand of their descendants still remain in AUCKLAND, while a number of the pioneers are hale and hearty to this day. It may interest unionists (says the N.Z. HERALD) to know how these early settlers fared. Government gave them employment cutting the streets and other public works, the married men to have 2s 6d a day, single men 1s 6d; diet, potatoes and pork, and for a change pork and potatoes.

***My ancestors Matilda and Samuel FURLEY were about this time also and up to now have been unable to trace their positive entry-Elaine

OPENING OF THE BOATING SEASON

Though rain threatened on Saturday it held off long enough to permit of the Napier rowing club holding the annual procession in connection with the opening of the boating season. The celebration was held at the boat sheds on the TUTAEKURI River in the presence of a large number of spectators, including many ladies. The first event was the procession up the river led by Mr S.R.KENNEDY, the Captain of the Napier Club.

Five boats from the Union Club were among those taking part in the procession. The weather was not very propitious, as a strong wind interfered with the races. Afternoon tea was provided by a number of ladies, and was much appreciated by those present.

The scratch fours was then rowed, and resulted as follows: -

First heat:
HUGHES, GUY, C.CATO, JARMAN, v HUTCHINGS, PATTISON, McVAY, N.KENNEDY. A good race won by HUGHES by a length.

Second heat: -
GOLLAN, HUME, HENPTON, H.CATO, v CHAPMAN, W.P.WILLIAMS, E.MOUNTFORT and H.MOUNTFORD.
GOLLAN took the lead at the start and won by two lengths.

Third heat: -
VON HAAST, WILSON, COOPER, W.RUDMAN v NEWTON, KNIGHT, S.JAGO, J.JAGO.
NEWTON won by half a length after a good race.

FINALS:-
ELIOTT, FLEMING, WHITE, KIELY rowed HUGHES' crew. After a slashing race won by a quarter of a length. GOLLAN rowed NEWTON, and won somewhat easily by a length. The final between GOLLAN and ELIOTT was the best race of the day, and was won on the post by the former by a bare quarter of a length.

After the third head the Union Club rowed a scratch race between the following crews: -
WAIROA: FORREST (Stroke), R YOUNG, (3), H SWAN (2), WRIGHTSON (Bow)
ARAWATA: HANDS (stroke), SHANAGHAN (3), C YOUNG (2), NEWMAN (Bow)

After a well contested race, in which more strength than style was displayed, HAND'S crew won somewhat easily at the finish. There is the material for making some good oarsmen in the club. They will, however, have to submit to plenty of coaching.

The public school-bell commenced to ring about 7.30 o'clock last evening. The cause of the alarm proved to have been an outbreak of fire on the premises of Mrs HARPER, who keeps a dairy in premises next to the Provincial Hotel. She had sent her little son aged three years, upstairs to bed, and by some means he had got possession of matches, with which he set the window curtains on fire. The flames leaped to the ceiling and got a good hold of the scrim and paper, and Mrs HARPER'S cries for help brought Messrs FOLEY, MURRAY, and ASHTON to her assistance, and they succeeded in putting out the fire and thus averting serious conflagration. The child who caused the accident has a penchant for striking matches, and was recently reprimanded by a constable for doing so in the street.

A Napier spieler came as far as Te AUTE as a passenger in the train yesterday, and avoided taking out a ticket to Woodville by concealing himself in a horse-box and then escaping to PALMERSTON. Guard WATKINS was on the alert, but the man was too smart to come within the reach of Constable TREANOR, with whom the spieler did not care to come into contact with again-

Patrick O'BRIEN was brought before Mr HALL, J.P. today for being drunk and disorderly. He was arrested on the 16th, and was locked up from 3 p.m. till this morning, owing to no J.P. being in town. Great inconvenience has been caused by scarcity of J.P's. Mr CARLILE is so far out of town, and Mr SOWRY has other work more important on hand at late, and worse still, his wife took ill a few days ago, and is in a critical state, lying there attended by doctors, and her many friends are seriously concerned about her.

Mr J EVANS-BROWN, who is now in the United States, has sent a letter of which readers can read an extract with interest. It tends to show that our Agricultural College at Lincoln compares very favourably with those in the states:-" I

A fine old Maori chief of the Middle Island passed away last week at the age of 80. Belonging to Arowhenua, a village near Temuka, Canterbury province, he settled at an early age at Puketeraki, and came under the influence of the Wesleyan Mission which was established in that place 47 years ago under the Rev. Mr WATKIN.

The Rev. Mr CREED succeeded about three years subsequently to the mission.

Through the care and influence of these missionaries, HAPE (the deceased chief) was induced to adopt the English habits and customs. He also imbibed many of the precepts of Christianity, and made considerable progress in reading and writing his own language.

His career and progress may properly be recognised and regarded as proof that missionary labor is productive of good results.

About 31 years ago the Wesleyans, having been constrained by circumstances to relinquish the field, Puketeraki passed into the hands of the Anglican Church, Mr BAKER being its first representative.

In course of time HAPE became a lay reader, which office he held till the time of his death.

Leading an exemplary life, he exercised considerable influence over his people. To his efforts, in a great measure, the natives have been restrained from habits of drinking. He commanded the confidence of European settlers and natives alike, his word being respected and relied up by all.
Amongst the passengers by the MONOWAI yesterday was Mr W.J. HARKER, who has been admitted to the WELLINGTON asylum as a lunatic

Train collision

The weather since Friday has been unusually severe, a strong N.W. Gale blowing, with a good deal of rain.

On Saturday an express train on the Wellington-Manawatu railway collided with a trolley in the first tunnel on the Johnsonville side of Khandallah. A man named TURKINGTON and a lad named HUBBARD were on the trolley, and each received a rather severe shaking. A second lad escaped without injury. A full inquiry is to be made into the accident by the company.

HBH 1890 Oct 28 BANNISTER
WAIROA

Mrs BANNISTER, who was working together with her husband at Mr George ORMOND'S WHANGAUEHI Station, MAHIA, died early Sunday morning from inflammation of the bowels.

The Rev Mr WELSH went up to MAHIA today to conduct the burial service.
The poll of ratepayers in the special districts, comprising the WAIKAREMOANA riding and part of the CLYDE riding, held last Saturday to decide whether the £6000 as proposed should be borrowed, resulted in the proposal being carried by a majority of three voters and 25 voters.

Of the £600 to be borrowed £2750 will be used to converting the WAIKAEMOANA bridle track into a dray track and for the WAIROA-MAHIA road. £500 for metalling the Clyde-FRASERTOWN road

The most energetic in the matter was Mr J.H.BROWN, who sent Mr J.H. SMYTH down to NAPIER at his own expense to bring up WAIROA ratepayers from that place. Four came up by the steamer on Saturday, and they just turned the scale in favour of the loan.

The construction of the WAIROA MAHIA dray road will be a great boon to Mr BROWN and others in that locality, and the improvements of the WAIKAREMOANA road will greatly facilitate the tourist traffic to our picturesque lakes. The successful carrying of the loan proposal marks a new era in the progress and development of this district, and will lead to further works of the kind.

He was born in Tyrone, Ireland, on November 12th, 1862.
Thursday

The notorious lunatic Hirini APERERE, a well known WAIROA native who goes out of his mind every now and then, is having another fit of madness. During these attacks he develops strong homicidal tendencies. Last Tuesday he drove over to the settlement of a neighbour named WATA PIRIHI, against whom he has a grudge. He threatened WATA with an axe and a knife, attempted to burn his house down, and chased his sick daughter for some distance.........more.....and then Constable SHAW, with the assistance of Constable BARRY arrested him and brought him to the lock-up. During the scuffle he bit Constable Shaw's hand, and then getting Constable BARRY'S finger in his mouth bit it in two, and had to be nearly choked before he let go.....more.....

He was bought up before LARGE and POWDRELL J.P's, charged with lunacy, WATA, the constable and Dr ROSS gave evidence and he was remanded to NAPIER . This is the fifth time he has been sent away as a lunatic and it is believed that if he is allowed to go free he will take somebody's life.

Duncan George ORR-on remand charged with lunacy at the Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, certified to be sane and discharged.

Two volunteers named CHEGWIDDEN and STURGESS were arrested yesterday and committed to gaol on an order issued by the commanding Officer for failing to pay a fine imposed by the same officer for being absent from a parade on the 27th of August. This will no doubt encourage other men to become Volunteers.

At last one of the blackguards who disfigure and injure property intended for the enjoyment of the public has been detected and punished.

William LOCKEY yesterday fined and costs for damaging a seat on the Marine parade.

At the same time and place James WARD, John DIXON, Harry THOMPSON, and James WELLS, and Mary Ann RUSSELL, for a second offence of drunkenness within a recent period, was fined 10s and costs.
