Abstract: Quarrel over a Burial. A peculiar and interesting law case is said to be likely to eventuate shortly in connection with the recent death at Ngaruawahia of a native chief of the Tainui tribe. ... A chief named Honana died at Ngaruawahia on April 26th last. A tangi was duly held, ... Now Ramana Nutana, the leading chief of the Tainuis, desired that the dead Honana should be buried at Raglan, where he had been born, and where his parents were interred, while 'King' Mahuta ordered that the remains be interred in the 'royal' burying ground on Taupiri Mountain.
