pp.415-416 [Editorial]
Comments on a recent article that appeared in the Hawke's Bay Herald concerning the Karaitiana v Sutton case in the Court of Appeal. Discusses the outcome of the case which concerns the repudiation of Maori land sales, and gives the
Court decision, which allowed for land that had been sold to be returned to the Maori owners. Comments that this is fraud as the land was sold legally, and states that it makes a mockery of the legislation that controls the sale of Maori land. Also suggests that another Land Act is introduced that allows for land to be sold without the majority of owners in agreement. Te Wananga advises that people read this article carefully and cautiously.

pp.416-422 The debate on the Hawke's Bay `Ring' land transaction
Report concerning the parliamentary debate on the `Ring' land transactions during which Sheehan produces further examples of the work of Mr Worgan, one of the four translators in the Hawke's Bay land transactions, who had been previously employed by the Government but had been dismissed for embezzlement of government money. Questions if this person should be holding his current position as a Resident Magistrate and Civil Commissioner, and quotes from Mr Fox, the late Premier, that Worgan was a man of the worst character who could not be trusted or believed. Contains further details concerning Worgan's character, and questions the validity of any of the transactions, considering the character and standards of the translators such as Worgan.
Also discusses the appointment of a Colonel Haultain who was sent to the Hawke's Bay area to enquire into the transactions against Maori owners but was unable to complete his work due to many complaints from Hawke's Bay Europeans concerning the validity of the enquiry. States that the work he completed did show defects, deficiencies and injustices in how land sales were carried out.
Other subjects covered by Sheehan in this part of the debate concern the Native Land Act, 1869, the Native Land Frauds Prevention Act, 1870 and the influence the Hawke's Bay European landowners had in the drafting of these Acts.
