The Land Commission.
United Press Association —By Electric Telegraph, Waiau, April 19 The Land Commission drove from Culverden to VTaiau this morning, and inspected Lyndon Nos- 1 and 2, and ADnaa settlements, taking evidence m the afternoon. Several Lyndon tenants complained that rents were fixed too high, but the majority were m favour of the leasehold. Annan tenants were 'satisfied with present conditions, but complained of the nonconstruction of a promised road to the settlement. Another complaint made was that the settlements were loaded with the excessive cost of constructing expensive roads. Walter Eutherford, formerly a large landholder, favoured the lease m parpetuity system, with periodic revaluations. The Commission returned to Culverden to-night, and will hear further evidence at Hawarden to-morrow.
