WELLINGTON, May 5. The Minister of Lands states that he has .given definite instructions to have certain matters brought before the Land Board at its next meeting, to deal with \Ahe questions raised by the Kopane soldier settlers. He had submitted to him a statement showing the position of these settlers which gave him the greatest satisfaction. Regarding the suggestion that the Government should capitalise rent for the first year or two instead of demanding payment at once, the Minister says the Land Boards have power, to postpone the first, second and third years' rent in cases where circumstances -demand postponement. At the end of this period there are three courses that may be taken. First, the postponed rent may be spread over a period of from two fco five years, and repaid in instalments, second, it may be capitalised and added to the capital value of the land on which the rent is assessed; third, in extreme cases it may be remitted altogether.
