IMPROVEMENT LEASES AND LAND RESUMPTION. Tliere are so many statements made at election time, and so many contra dictions, that even the enlightened elector is at a loss to arrive at a con clusion as to which side is telling the truth. Figures unfortunately do not always toll "the whole truth and no thing but the truth," and consequent ly it means that the elector has to try to read between the lines, .and judge for himself as to who is doing the juggling. At Thursday's meeting, for instunce, Mr. Farrar made great capi tal out of his figures respecting the question of Improvement. Leases. Ho went back to the Reid Government, and read a statement of Improvement Leases granted srince that time. In Reid's time 532 leases were granted, with an average of 9289 acres; under the Lyne-See Government there were 966 leases, -with an average of G31G acre; Carruthers Government, 394 loases, with an average of 4577 acres; Wade Government, 252 leases, with an average of 5829 acres; and un der Labo...
