With reference to your letter of the 5th. ultimo, yr inforemt,n that yoer predecessor in office was not prepared to include the above petition in the Mori Purposes Bill, and that further he did. not agree that it should be in,luded amonget the matter, submitted to th,- Royal Goamission cones as a eurprise to me. Certain inquiries were mege of um principally wits regaro the possibility of eiadlar claims being made by former Maori owners of Groin timber lands. I said that in the whole of my experience as an officer of the Native Department the Tihoi Grown purchase ia4tbe only case in which Departmental valuation figures are available of timber ono land at the two orucial points namely at the time of purchase and on definitim of the Or em'. interests by-the Maori Land Gourt. The figures disclosed that between the yeee 1929. when toe latest purchesea ware made - and 1946 - when the interests purchased were defined - the value of the interests sequired'appreoiated to the extent of L2246: And no factor or combination of factors; such as roading, for instesse ,an poibly be brought into the reckoning that would account for this appreciation in value.,. The inesempable feet is that there was, es stated Id our petittak, groan underpayment by the drown tor 141 shares purchased. The purchases were based on values of 41. pen sere for timber land end 6/- for open country. , On the Court defining the interests aceuired the values sated on were S20 for timber lends -(A oonservative figure 3udgirg by our- present timber operations) end veluee varying between 7/6 and 10/-per sore for the open country. Aocordingly I could not see where a prostdoot might be estebliabed for re-opening other oases. Thee points and other sensate of the case were also disenet- among other matters, were our replies (given verbally before the Committee Of Mori Affairs end not recorded) to the Chief Surveyor's memorandum. This memorandum, which you no doubt read when considering thin matter, does not altogether give 4 fair summary of the position. For instance, in the memorandum the Chief Surveyor, states: &quot;Regarding N (Cleuse of Petition).-the meeting of &quot;assembled owners were either ad3ourned or lapsed for want of quorom.&quot;  . sherofts iha,Regietrar of the esioriki Maori Lend  Board in his report to the President wrote (E/12/1919 - Board file 3268) inter alias- .

4492. &quot;The owners asked at the oommenaltamnt of the meeting to take these two blocks (Tiboi end faibahe) together &quot;in order to obtain en expression of the feelings of the &quot;owners. -This was agreed to. The Revolution to sell Te Tihoi at the Government 'Valuation was read end explained. The owners ebsolutely  refused to entertain the proposal or even dieouss it.  The resolutions to sell eaihshe subdivision at the &quot;Government Valuations were also refused&quot;. 'rho owned of the two blocks ex d a desire to  sell but at a much higher price. Some of them intimated that the Crown had quite recently b'night a block called Hsubuftgaroe (This refers to N I think) adjoining Tihol:, end Waihatha blocks at C3 per acre for the bush portions end 12/6 per acre for the open, end that these two blocks were equally as good at Hauhungeroa. They, therefore, 'asked for the same price se that given for Nauhunieroft Kook. &quot;gobs guirama, on behalf of the owners of Te Tihot Block, et this stage proposed that the m7etings in oonnect&quot;ion with that block bet adjourned. Lumeroa to Tini seconded &quot;the motion and it was agreed to. There are as I have stated other oointe in the Chief Surveyors memorandum which were dealt ,ith by us before the Gommittes f Maori Affairs of which ther is no record on the papers which have come under your notice. There was no one there taking a verbetre4 report of the proceedings. After the General flection I was advised that, as the result meant a change of Government and as this case presented some unique features, ell of which required careful oonsid4ratiom particularly as to th,- nature of the order or reference which would require the aoprovel of cabinet - your predeoesEor felt that the matter should be left over for his successor to deal with. It is nom clear that no minute or record was made of the action eontemplated as indicated above. As the matter is of vital importance to the people I represent, 1 respectfully suggest that this point be referred to your predecessor so as to have it cleared up. There is too, 3ir, the aspect of my integrity; as in its present posture it night be info 'red I was endeavouring to mislead you when I stated in my previous letter that action was contsm. plated as indicated by me. This is dithout d,ubt bad case. Thai Department of. Maori Affairs, as the main instrument used by the Grown in thedf purchases, had perforce to set contrary to its vaunted role of virtual trustee of the Maori race, and as the result of the purchases has reduced the owners, as a sub tribe of Ngati to a state of almost landless. There are of course a few individuals - WI wife being one - who have acquired interest. through other tribal connections. They ars gradually drifting awev from their ancestral home at hokal. During ell last three seers 1 have found urk for three married men, of this tribe in our Incorporation Mill. Some have drifted auk, to Auckland end other parts. Where formerly they owned about 70,000 acres they how have about 10,000 aerials, some of which is very poor land. Although there were lees than 70 signatories, to. thepetition; the total nuMber of those ooncerned in the case would be aoproximatel 500 when all the suooessareere accounted for.

4803. A hill ranking off of the Depertment At Maori Affairs (Mr. nowler) was the Land Puruhass Crfleer. This Ooer was at Various time also Registrar, President and Commissioner of the Maori Land ,&quot;: ourt. Ac President and Commlesioner he woe in a jedioial position; his duties being virtually those of a Judge of the Court. and in that eapacity he emcng other things, would have had to take into aocsount whether soy Maori selling land had sufficient other lands for bin maintenanes or was otherwise properly provided for. In these Tihoi purohen no such consideration was given to the circumstances of th people ooneerned: elth,ugh the Aot 'specifically requires that Vie aspect shoul.bs taken into account in all purchases. The Tihoi people were at the time in poor ?traumatise (This own be ',horn by referenos to the purchaee deeds themselves) and they were ',louse of the stressful times end the Land Purshase Officer's ever ready Government cheque book, and he was abiW,to dominate the situation. The Grown was in such a position that they were able, and did take full advantage of their superiority over the will and judgment of- the Maori owners of these valuable timber lands.  The Chief aurveyor made a point of the feetthat for a period extending from 17/12/1920. until 21/3/1921 thAsetted rertriotion against private alienation was not in foro and the owners made no effort to dispose of the land privately. (Top of sheet 4 of his memorandum). This statement isebeer sophistry. Firstly; the Owners have no ready weans of ascertaining that re. striations had been lifted - this can only be asoertained so far as Maori's arc ounoerued by having their attention drown to it by those whc know where the informatiqnsoan be found: and secondly; (And this earn the term)sr. the period when the restriction was not in fore extemed,owar n matter of leas than 10 weeks, and included the Christmas and beef Year holidays. I would sug,est that the interlude in this regard wee the result of en oversight on the part of some Officer and It was attended to immediately the annropriste period elapsed when ham ug diary mite brought it under notice. Bow' At can be expected that negotiations Gould be opened and eerried through on private dial is auoh short, Lisa is eAsestion that cannot be appworiale anyone who knownenything about such matters. The conelUdine paragraph of the memomendum was fully answered before the Committee of Maori Affairs; and it was shown that in so far as reading was conoerned this country is ensr-rolling tussock puede land and, roadine is a o agmratively inexpensive item) and that nothing like the figure of the rise in Values sines the ourchasea could be attributed to Government or private expenditure-. I respect the Government ourchesed thesands at figures whioh were considerably below their true values. (The percentages vary from 32 on open land 40 1493 in the cue of timbered raft as the rise in Clause: ). The oonsoienoe of the Crown I wayld imagine should be ill at ease over these Tihoi purchases, and I earnemtly plead with you, air, to reconsider your decision. The dictum, inherent in Britian juatioe, that:- Where one of Inc particle stands such a relation of superiority towords the other, end iClim'a position to exercise Ruch dondnation and influence over his will and 3udgment, that the law imposer: nA,ohlinetlen upon the dominent party to eatablish, if challenged, that he has not abus,d that influence or t,ken undue or improper advantage of the earvient party's euojection, distress, or neoee-ities.

The: your Petitioners were owners of undivided shares in one or more of these blocks of Maori Land, or are the next of kin of former Maori owners who are now deceased. The land is situate in the Auckland Land District, Waiariki Maori Land Court District in Hurakia and Marotiri Survey Districts. 2. THAT in the years prior to 1920 the Crown endeavoured to pur- chase these lands by resolution of the &quot;assembled owners&quot; but the owners as a body refused to sell at the price offered by the Crown. In 1921 the Crown began to purchase undivided shares by transfer from individual owners. These negotiations continued right down to the year 1930. '3. THAT the prices paid by the Crown on these transfers were as follows: on 3B8B3 containing 9709 acres 5/2 per acre or 4/6 per share on 3B8B4 5636 &quot; 15/- per acre or 13/0 per share on 3B8B6 6698 &quot; 15/9 per acre or 13/8 per share on 3B8B8 16129 &quot; 9/5 per acre or 8/1 per share 4. THAT the said lands first appeared on the District Valuation Roll under the above description on 31st March 1931 wherein they are shown as follows: Tihoi 3B8B3 9709 ac. Caal. ?2425 ?2425 388B4 5636 &quot; &quot; &quot; ?2820 &quot; ?2820 with a note thereon &quot;Timber&quot;  3B8B6 6698 ac. Cap.

697, - 2. 5. THAT on 20th March, 1946, on the application of the Crown the Maori Land Court partitioned the lands between the Maori owners who had sold their shares and the Maori owners who had not sold. At the hearing the Crown Representative called evidence of tue value of the land. The values so given were: 3B8B3 all open land ?7280 equal to about 15/- an acre 3B8B4 open land ?325 Timber acres ?62970 Total ?63295 equal to over ?11 per acre 3B8B6 open land ?700 Ti.:ber areas ?97090 Total ?97790 equal to about ?1. per acre 3B8B8 open land ?6420 Timber areas ?81030 Total ?87450 equal to about E5. 8. er acre. 6. THAT values set out in the last paragraph are on a par with the price at which a sale of timber on Tihoi 3B8B5A was confirmed by the Maori Land Court in the year 1939. In the year 1939 access to the 'mid lands was no better than it was between 1920 and 1930 when the Crown was purchasing shares. 7. TEAT some of your petitioners lastyear filed petitions of right in the Supreme Court claiming additional purchase money for the shares in the said lands sold by them, under Section 425 of the Maori Land Act, 1931. The pleas filed in answer by the Crown Solicitor disclosed for the first time to your petitioners that the lands were at time of purchase entered on the District Valuation Roll and included under other numbers viz as follows: 1/201/738 Tihoi part 46193 ac. ?11548 ?11548 This effects all 388B4 and 38886 and parts of 36883 and 3B8B8 dated 31st March, 1916 - -- 1/200/805 Tihoi 382 part 5511 ac. ?1328 ?1328 1/200/809 &quot; 361 part 556 ac. ?90 ?90 These two effect part of Tihoi 3B8B3 dated 31st March 1914 1/200/808 Tihoi 3Q2 Pt. 184 ac. ?45 ?45 and that a report had been obtained from the Valuer General dated 28th January 1920 that the District Valuer advised to the effect &quot;that Valuations of these blocksbave not substantially

7283. increased since the last date of Valuation namely 1916&quot; 8. THAT in view of the disclosure of these facts the petitioners to the Supreme Court have been advised by Counsel that the petitions to the Supreme Court under See. 425 of the Maori Land Act could not succeed and they have therefore not been proceeded with. 9. THAT we say, however: sT?Ire have been grossly underpaid for our shares in the said lands. (b) The entries in the Valuation rolls of 1914 and 1916 did not indicate there was milling timber on the lands. (c) That even if the Valuations of 1914 and 1916 were reasonable then, the timber areas became much more valuable before the Crown began to purchase in 1921 and continued to increase in value in each year thereafter. (d) The Crown should not have continued purchases up till 1930 at 1914 and 1916 valuations with the 4nowledge there was valuable timber of increasing value on parts of the land. (e) The Maori owners were debarred from negotiating any alienation themselves as there was a proclamation over the lands prohibiting alienation except to the Crown. 10. TEAT we therefore pray teat right be done in this matter and that the shares purchased by the Crown be paid for at a true value and your Petitioners will ever pray.

1222-2 - 5. 01' 20th March, 1946 on the application of the Crown the Maori Land Court partitioned the lands between the Maori owners who had sold their shares and the Maori owners who had not sold. At the hearing the Crown Representative called evidence of the value of the land. The values so given were: 38883 all open land ?7280 equal to about 15/- en acre 38884 open land 2325 Timber areas ?62970 Total ?63295 equal to over ?11 per acre. 38886 open land ?700 Timber areas ?97090 Total ?97790 equal to about ?12. 0 per acre. 38888 open land ?6420 Timber areas ?81030 Total ?87450 equal to about ?5. 8. 0 per acre. 6. THE values set out in the last paragraph are on a par with the price at which a sale 4 tinter on Tihoi 365A was confirmed by the Maori Land Court in the year 1939. In the year 1939 access to the said lands was no better than it was between 1920 and 1930 when the Crown was purchasing shares. 7. SOME of your petitioners last year filed '4{.=ese of right in the Supreme Court claiming additional purchase money for the shares in the said lands sold by them, under Section 425 of the Maori Land Act, 1931.

1253-3- dated 28th January 1920 that the District Valuer advised &quot;to the effect that Valuations of these blocks have &quot;not substantially increased since the last date of &quot;Valuation namely 1916&quot; 8. IN view of the disclosure: of these facts the petitioners to the Supreme Court have been advised by Counsel that the petitions to the Supreme Court under Sec. 425 of the ori Land Act could not succeed and they have therefore not been proceeded with. 9. WE say, however: (a) We have been grossly underpaid for our shares in the said lands. (b) The entries in the Valuation rolls of 1914 and 1916 did not indicate there was milling timber on the lands. (c) That even if the Valuations of 1914 and 1916 were reasonable then, the timber areas became much more valuable before the Crown began to purchase in 1921 and continued to increase in value in each year thereafter. (d) The Crown should not have continued purchases up till 1930 at 1914 and 1916 valuations with the knowledge there was valuable timber of increasing value on parts of the land. (e) The ori owners were debarred from negotiating any alienation themselved as there was a proclamation over the lands prohibiting alienation except to the Crown. 10. WE therefore pray that right be done in this matter and that the shares purchased by the Crown be paid for at a true value and your Petitioners will ever pray. Signature of petitioner Date Name of deceased owner if Vendor deceased.

14394 OPINION of Mr. Brodie for Mceere. Watt, Currie Acjack. Solicitors, Wanganui re ?PETITICKS OP RIGHT : TIHOI BLOCX 3B 8B Nos. 3, 4, 6 8. The question for opinion touches certain petitions of right filed in the Supreme Court by or on behalf of Manta Methane and other former owners of undivided intereete in the abovementioned 'Native Lands. Their interests, held by them under,e Partition Orders of the Native Land Court, were purchased by the Crown under the authority of Part In of the now-repealed Native Land Act 1909 and its amendments at various times between the years 1921 and 191, and during that period transfers, as yet unregistered, of their respective interests were executed by them in favour of the Crown, By section 371 of the Act of 1909 (re-enacted as section 448 of the consolidating Act of 1951) the Crown was authorised to purchase undivided shares in Native land. By section 372 (now section 452 of the Act of 1931) conditions as to price were imposed on the Crown: the section reads as follows: &quot;No interest of a Native in Native land shall be purchased by the &quot;Crown under the authority of this Part of this Act at a price &quot;which is lees than the amount at which the capital value of that &quot;interest is valued under the Valuation of Land Act, 1908, in the &quot;district roll which is in force under that Act at the time of &quot;the contract of purchase. &quot;If no such valuation is then in force, the Native Lend Purchase &quot;Board shell require the Valuer-General to make a special &quot;valuation Of the interest proposed to be acquired, and the &quot;interest shall not be purchased at a less price than the amount &quot;at which it is so valued. &quot;No purchase shall be invalidated by any disregard of the &quot;requirements of this section, but the deficiency in the purchase &quot;money shall constitute a debt due by the Crown to the owner of &quot;the interest, and recoverable accordingly in proceedings &quot;instituted within two years after that interest has become &quot;legally vested in the drown.&quot; The question is whether the Crown complied with the requirements of this section as to price of the interests acquired. Each of the petitions is based on the contention that in respect of the land to which it relates there wee at the time of purchase and transfer no valuation in the district roll under the Valuation of Land Act 1908 and that no special valuation ?.1

14702. was made as required in that case by subsection 2. It is claimed in each petition that the price paid 13/ the Crown and accepted by the vendors wee in fact inadequate and that the deficiency constitutes a new-recoverable debt due by the Crown to the selling owners. I am asked to assume that the petitions were filed within the period of limiatation prescribed by subsection 3. The pleas filed in answer in behalf of the Crown in each case aver that there was at all mater1al times an entry in the District Roll which was in force under the Valuation of Lend Act 1908 in respect of the relative land, such entry being.: dated the 31st day of Manch 1916, end also that a further valuation report was obtained from the Valuer-Oeneral in respect of sucand on the 28th day of January 1920. The second half of these pleas may amount to a contention that the &quot;further valuation report&quot; therein mentioned was a &quot;special valuation&quot; within the meaning of subsection 2, if the first half of the plea should fail. However that may be, it is plain that if the facts justify the first half of the plea, there has been no disregard of the requirements of section 372 as to price and the petitions moat fail. It appears that at the times of purchase and of transfer the only entries in the District Roll concealing these lands were entries dated in 1914 and 1916, before the awing of the Partition Orders which defined Tihoi 38 88 Roe. 3, 4, 5 and 6 and ascertained the interests of the petitioners therein. I do not find it necessary to set out the actual entries, There was no valuation of Tihoi 3B 8B ae such and certainly no entry as to individual undivided interests. Mr. Jack, however, has had compatitations made by a surveyor of the land in the Blocks in the relative survey Districts and finds (what I assume to be the fact) that the lands in the Valuation Roll entries of 1914 and 1916 on which the Crown relies - although not under the same titular description or the same ownership r are the very lands in which the petitioners held the undivided interest sold by them to the Crown and in respct of which they now claim.

15013. It is not contended that the price paid by the Crown was in the case of any of the purchases leas than a proportion of such valuation accordino the undivided shares held and sold by the respective transferors: indeed, I understand it to have been rather more, though still far below values indicated by a separate assessment of standing timber in the course of recent proceedings for partition as between the Crown and those owners who had not Mild their shares. On these facts I em of opinion that there was at all material times with respect to the interests purchased a valuation under the Valuation of Lend Act 1908 in the district roll in force under that Act and that the price paid was not less than such valuation. I think that a valuation of the whole is necessarily a valuation of an aliquot undivided part or parts. Given the value of the whole, clearly the value of, say, an undivided half is obtained by dividing by two and obviously the same process of simple arithmetic applies for, say, 1331 undivided shares out of a total of 112981 shares of a given aggregate value. The statute must be read and construed reasonably.'. It expressly authorised the Crown to buy undivided interests. It specified the District Roll as the criterion of value, if such roll contained an entry in force as to the interest purchased. In this case the District Roll by showing the value of the whole showed, by neceesery implication, the value of all aliquot parts, and, in my opinion, the statute is satisfied. Certum est good certum reddi potest. To construe the statute otherwise would lead, I think, to absurdities. Suppose that a parcel of native land, singly owned and duly appearing valued in the owner's name in the appropriate District Roll passes to several devisees as tenants in common in aliquots shares (equalor unequal) under his will and the Crown purchases the interests of some of the devisees which the roll is still in force but not yet altered - could it be argued that because the individual vendors or the values of their respective interests did not appear in the roll at the time of the contract of purchase that the Crown could 06,
