CORRESPONDENCE. -9-~- SURVEV FEES. 7b the Editor of the Trarnlgan Perord. Sir,-I amn pleased that your Callignt' correspondent has drawn attention to the. excessive survey charges now being made under the present Act. I also.under?toad that tlhe survey fees would lb rmuch lighter under the new La]nd Act, than und-r the old one; but this week, £17 odd is de manded for the survey of 200 acres, that under the old Act would have Ieon sur veyed for ahout £9 or £10. I was under the impression that when the survey fees amounted to over £10, the layttieut would be extended over two or three years, to make it lighter for the selector, but amn now informned the anmount' numst bhe paid within 28 days from date of notice. In conclusion I would suggest that selectors in tliis'distric hllould, throughli onit repre sentative, draw the attention of the Minister of lands, to the heavy fees de m:Inded, and to endeavour to obt?dn a redress of the grievance -f .... ."....
