text: 9/2/1926 To Nikiya about 14 miles, via Lazarr and Kitangrr, where I arrested one Tsikimu a troublesome fellow I have wanted for 5 years past. I got rid of a number of medals here.
text: 10/2/1926 Halted Nikiya to deal with two or three land disputes. I fixed part of a disputed boundary between Nikiya and Shietsu (Political Case No. 6 of 1924) and also between Shietsu and Tsungare. A chief of Yezachimi came in about a land dispute between two brothers, one in his village, one in Yazuthu. Apparently it has twice been attempted by dobashis but I refused to interfere.
