THE RAILWAY RATE (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
THE RAILWAY RATE (TO THU EDITOR.) Sir--In the interests of fair play: I think there ought to be an expla nation vouchsafed as to the manner in which the Bruthen-Orbost Rlil way Trust have arranged the railway rate in the Shire of Orbost, taking the shire valuation as a basis, which was:made by a. disinterested officer of the shire council and was so high that it caused ill-feeling against the valuer. In my case the valuation of my property was doubled, so that it is safe to go on the shire \a'uation as the 'ruest estimate of the value of properties with:n the shire.. Now, having th i authority given above in' viewv I mightlbe entitled to ask why:i first-class lan:l is valued at 6d in the: pound, whilst fifth-class land is valued at'ls 6d in thepound by the Railwvay Trust. In all the elements of fair dealing the arrangment ought to be the other way about. First class lani should be valued at Is 61 in the pound and fifth-class at 6d in the pound, always having regard-to distance from ...
