New Plymouth, Saturday.

At 2 o’clock, Te Whiti and Tohu were again brought before the Bench, when C. W. Hursthouse, licensed interpreter, who stated that he had known Te Whiti for 25 years, gave evidence as to the obstruction caused by the natives at Parihaka. On being asked if he had any questions to put to witness, Te Whiti said he had not, but would make a statement. The Bench said he would subsequently have an opportunity of doing so, and the Court then adjourned till to-day, at 10.30 a.m.
