UNCLAIMED LAND. 'At the meeting of the Footscray Council on Monday last, St. Luke's Church of England, Yarraville, wtote desiring the council to take steps to dispose of land in Somer. ville road, consisting of lots 38 tI 4t, block i, portion 2, section S.

They could not do any thing till they had done so. Cr Pearce; continuing, s...
