A RAID ON PARIHAKA.

Inspector M'Govewj accompanied by Sergeant Stagpoole and ten constables, proceeded to Paribaka at an early hour on Saturday for the purpose of arresting three Natives who failed to answer a summons to appear at Opunake on a charge of wilfully damaging property at Pihama, the outcome of a faction dispute over the ownership of land. No resistance was offered, and the men were brought to New Plymouth. It appears that four constables went to the village on Friday to take the men to Opunake, but they refused to go, on the ground that they would not get fair treatment there. Consequently a stronger force was organised, but the Natives came willingly, stating that they would go to Hawera or New Plymouth, but not to Opunake.
