The idlers: A study in black and white. The White Tramp: "Goodness! Ain't I sorry I wasn't born black!" While on his recent tour of the North, the Native Minister (Hon. W.H. Herries) expressed his opinion that no Maori should be landless. "What he wanted to do was bring down legislation which would enable the Maori to farm or cultivate his land in his own way, or to despose of it, so long as he did not render himself landless." The Maori's "own way" of cultivating land is in many cases such as to cause the pakeha to wonder why he should have any land at all.
