Details:  A man named Scott was buying dressed flax at Tauranga and he heard about Farrow and Tapsell's store at Rotorua. Scott was a competitor for the flax and arrived at Rotorua with an armed guard. The local Maori tricked him, killed one of his guards and the other two were rescued by the timely arrival of the chiefs Haupapa and Tangaroa from Maketu.
