FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS. The "New Zealand Times" of Saturday says:— From a private bat authentic souroe we learn that the ill feeling between the rval parties to the celebrated Bawke>*« ~ Bay will case is likely to come to a head shortly. As was stated In these columns a week ago, Mrs Donnelly had given Mr Brough'on notice, to gait the Omaha block by the 22nd instant, and pa/ up back rents. On Thursday last over a hundred foreign naiives had made their appear«noe at the pah m the vicinity of tbjj Wooki and numbers of doga were being eolleoted —the object being, apparently, to eject Broughton and bis sheep by force. The Omaha block had not yet been through the # Native, Land Court, but the Oonrt begius a sitting to-day, at which the matte* will probably be decided. Theobjjction to Braughron's presence on the block doubtless arises out of the new. - : historic lair suits m coanection with: i'enata Kawepo, but the ostensible reaion given for ejecting him is that b.t> h not entitled to any share m it, but that the land belong* to the people of whom Airini Donnelly, according to Maori etiquette, U of the very bluest blood, of better caste-, 67en than the late Benata Kawepo, who> ia addition to being of obscurer birth, had at one time beeo captured m battle, and \a consequence bore lasting opprobrium as having been a slave. Mtb Donnelly, therefore, although the goods and chattels of tbe fate chief have passed to Broughton, claims to speak for her people ; and, m that capacity flhe says that Broughtoa must go. 'I hat is the position at present. We understand that the police authorities do not anticipate any serious, breach of the peace, but proper precautions will doubtless be taken agaios/, anything o? the. kind.
