THE PARIHAKA MEETING.
INTERPRETATIONS OF TE WHITTS SPEECH.
[BY TELEGRAM!.] Haweka, May 21.
The meanings given by the' natives of Te Whiti’s statements at the Parihaka meeting are conflicting. Some say he refers to swamps as the impediments to the roads meeting. Those more in the prophet’s confidence say his words have no reference to the actual road now being made, the word road being only used on a metaphor to signify the paths of the two races, the policy or interests of ihs races being two ends that cannot meet at the same time. Te Whiti strictly enjoins peace and good-will to all men and no interference with road parties, nor other works in progress It is also said by some of the natives that he forbids any more whares being erected to seaward of the reserves.
