- (By Telegraph.r^O'wDu.c6rrespondent.J" '"Z I- : ; An important alteration of Jhe_Forest. Kegulations affecting Crown lands has been gazetted. It has been a-grievance among sawmillers that comparatively large areas have been secured by millers who owned small plants, and that those who went to the. expense of installing machinery -capable of dealing with- a large output obtained no corresponding advantage' in cutting rights. Under the new regulations, however,, the .area will depend upon the horse-power -a the mill machinery. The total areat ~- granted are not to exceed the following amounts: Where the nominal horse-power of a mill does nob exceed S h.p.j 300 acres; 9. or JO. ; .h.pv acres; ; .11 or 12 h.p./:500. acres; 13 or 14 h.p., 600 acres; 15 or 16 h.p./ SOO-acres; 17 or IS h.p., 000 acres; 19' or 20 h.p., 1000 acres; 21 or 22 h.p., 1200 acres; between 22 and 30 h.p:; 1300 acres; from .30 h.p. upwards, 1500 acres. For the purpose of this regulation, the n.h.p. of a mill shall be that of- the engine, except where the n.h.p. of the boiler is less than that of the engine, in which case that of the boiler shall be taken. No change is made in the royalty charges, but the -whole of the forest regulations have been redrawn to bring them into harmony with the Consolidated Act of 1908. .• r
