Land Valuation.

Timabu, May 25 A meeting of farmers of the Geraldine district was held yesterday afternoon at the conclusion of the weekly stock sale to protest against the present system of valuing land, and it was unanimously decided to form a taxpayers' Protection League. Complaint was made that values in Geraldine district were too high, and that the Assebsment Court was wrongly constituted, and the abolition of this Court was advocated, the valuing to be done by one man appointed by the Government and another appointed by the Road Board or County Council with an umpire in the event of a disagreement, the decision then arrived at to be final. The speakers also contended that valuers should personally inspect every farm and leave with the farmer a note of the valuation made, to prevent valuations being raised later on, as they complained was often done now. A strong Committee was formed, and representations are to be made to the Government.
