It is the first time in. the history, of the Common wealth that the ., electors have been placed in the; position of deciding such a clean-cut issue, and, i therefore, it is more important than ever before that they-should have a true concep tion of the merits or demerits of both parties in order that they might cast- an intelligent vote.

MORE-LAND TARADIDDLES. To the Editor pf ' Huon Times.' Sir,--I see in a, r-epQrt, pub lished in a Hobart daily on Fri day last, of a meeting held by Mr Ready in Hobart that gentleman used my name as a glaring instance of the under valuation of the properties in. the Midland district. Had he, in his illustration, confined himself to the truth, I should^havehad no ob iGetkin to his usine ray name, but when he, on a public platform, makes use of deliberate untruths to suit' his own contention', I think it only right that I should publicly xefute such, When he stated that Mr W. H. Beimett's property, Ashby a'nd'Bloonrfield, was assessed a.t £1 15s. per acre, he rniist either b« sc- ignorant that he could. not calculate it at per acre frpm the assessment roll, or else he wa§ §ta,tin.gf what he knew to be a deliberate mis siatement, A§hby, .comprising 780 acros, is assessed at £3,000 which is at the rate of £3 17s. per acre ; Bloomfield, 5,£00 acres, is assessed at £12,000, which is £2 2a...

Already the advancement made in connection therewith fur nishes conclusive proof that it is going to completely revolutionise the industry. It has now been carried far beyond the experi mental stage, and no . fruitpro ducing country can afford to consider it lightly.
