ANOTHER NATIVE DISTURBANCE
Gbahamstown, Nov. 28. • Mr Harley, of Hikutai, has lodged, through his solicitor, a complaint against four natives who obstructed his survey last Saturday, and an information for assault against two others. The case will be heard next Friday. The survey party, headed by Mr R. C. Long, were engaged surveying a piece of Mr Alley’s land at Hikutai, the Crown grant of which was granted nearly 40 years ago, when a mob of 10 armed and 300 unarmed men, headed by Tamati Paetae, Native Assessor, stopped the work, although Mr Long and his chainman were on highway of country roads. .
