The Ashburton Guardian. Magna est Veritas et Prævalebit. MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1886. A FLAW IN OUR SETTLEMENT SCHEMES. &quot; The possession m freehold of the least piece of land bars a colonist m New Zealand from acquiring any portion of the wastelands of the Crown that are being offered, and which people are being begged to take, under the exceptionally liberal terms advertised by the present Ministry, A working man who owns the thirty-sixth part of an acre m the town or suburb, on which, perhaps he has built a cottage, is not allowed to take up land on the H )mestead system, nor can he become * &quot; village settler,&quot; or a tenant of the Crown under the perpetual leasing system. If he wants land he must go in'o the market and buy as any other capitalist must do.&quot; Thus the Napier Daily Telegraph of the 28th ult. The complaint is, m the main, true though by no means new, as this flair m our land settlement schemes has previously betrn pointed...
