STANLEY JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 5 November 1890
STANLEY JOTTINGS. &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) &nbsp; A further attempt has been made to ' get at ' Those Lords of Wastes and Princes of deserts, the V.D.L. Company, by another assessment of the Circular Head properties. Formerly the annual values of these lands were carefully assessed year by year by the local justices, who in addition to their intimate local knowledge, might fairly be presumed to possess a practical knowledge of land values. Outsiders, however, who bore no kindly feeling towards the company, and only regarded them as foreign land grabbers, considered that the local bench was either bamboozled by the company or playing into their hands. A good many &nbsp; years ago Messrs, Kemp and Butler made a fresh valuation, and published a roll that was so glaringly inaccurate that it never could be used. A Mr. Smith was them em- ployed by the Government to make another assessment. Then Mr. Henry, of the Real Estate Duties Office, ...
