text: There are sundry land disputes on the range between Hoikiya and the Tizu now raised in an acute form by a proposal of Kohoto's to start a new village there. In any case I doubt if there is room for a new village.
text: To Tehephema, another steep climb of 3000 ft up and down again in a distance of five miles or less, (3 as the crow flies). Many complaints and cases here including an unlooked for homicide case, in which a British subject had gone to a transfrontier village and been assaulted there and died when he got home.
