RE MOTORS USING THE ROADS IN AKAROA COUNTY AT NIGHTS.
Sir,—One aspect of the motor traffic which should appeal to the farming community, i 9 that the larger num bar of motors passing each individual property daily, must increase the value of his land. It cinnot be denied that the increased increment takes its rise from the opportunity, offered to the people by a quick means of loco. motion. The property ownera of the Nelson district are not shutting out the motors with bylaw.-*, which are only suitable for ten years back, with the result that the land in that locality worth eight pounds an acre five years ago, is now selling at forty an acre. May I ask what is the value at, present of a horse that is afraid of motors, pat thn class of animal in the sale ring and tell the truth about him and however fine looking an animal be i 3 you will be lucky if anyone will tak« him at five pounds. I am, etc ,
A Lover oj? the Horse who much raqbets that the horse muht give * way to the Motor i?or utility pur , PO3E3
