The Land Scandal in N.S.W.

United Press Association— By Rleotrio Telegraph—Copyright Sydney, May 10 Mr Willis was examined before the Land Commission. Ha said that his object m undertaking to have leases converted was that they were situated m an arid district. Though the land laws did not provide for this he thought no reasonable Minister or department would object to a method being adopted whereby the people thereon were put upon a financial and proper position. Until something like what he proposed was done, the whole of the Ipeople would be hunted off the land. He explained the heavy charges he had been put to. The case | was unique, and would have been dragged throughgthe whole Courts of the land. Still if he had been allowed to carry it through he believed he would have won. He emphatically denied that Mr Criofc, the then Minister of Lands, was m any way interested m the matter, and hotly denounced the press. He had been scandalously treated by scurrilous hounds.
