£6 O O The Otago Daily Times stated, that the Land in the Province of Otago reached by rail roads had increased in value 400 per cent during the last two years, In Scotland where the halt of the Land is owned by UU men it has been estimated that the estate held by these 150 owners have since the introduction of rail-ways, increased in value to the extent of 4000 millions sterling. We cite these instances to shew how the making of roads, and rail ways affect the landed proprietor in both hemispheres. Land is compara- tively worthless unless its products can be brought to. market and turned into money. . Without roads it is worthless, save as a possession: because let as much grain or crops be grown on it as possible, there is no chance of their being brought, where they can be sold. When people who have large Landed estates, and no roads tu them in other countries, and cannot get the Government to make them, they do so for themselves, as they know that every pound expended in road making, either by themselves, or by the Government, doubles the value of every acre of Land they possess. If a man only had twenty cabbages a year to sell, he would get more for them if he had twenty people willing to purchases them, if he had only two. Thus it is the interest of the owner, and occupier of Land both to obtain as good roads has possible through, the Land they, either own, or occupy. Now this is. the point, to which we wish to arrive, the Maori's are the large Land owners of the North Island. They hold two thirds of the whole say 15,000,000, acres, it may be said by them that a large portion of it is not of much value. This HE KUPU WHAKAATU KI NGA HOA TUHI MAL

Kei Koterengi i tawahi, ko te hawhe o te Whenua no nga tangata 15 >, a kua meatia, ko nga paamu e purutia ana enei tangata 150, kua meatia i muri nei kia haere- ngia e nga rerewe, kua nui haere te utu ki te 400 miriona moni, e whakaatu ana matou i enei mea hei whakakite i te paanga ki nga tangata whiwhi Whenua o te mahinga rori me te rerewe. Kore rawa he paanga mo te Whenua ki te kore ona hua e tae ki te makete, ara, ki te hoko kia puta mai ia he - moni. A, ki te kore he ruri, kaore he taunga, heoi tonu ko tona whiwhinga, no te me ahakoa nui nga mea e whakatupuria ki runga, kaore noa he ara hei taenga mo aua mea ki tetahi , waahi hei hokonga mo ratou, ki te whai Whenua nunui etahi tangata o etahi atu Whenua, a, kaore he rori ki aua Whenua, a, kaore ranei te Kawanatanga, e hanga, ka mahia e ratou ake, e mohio ana hoki ratou ko nga pauna moni e pau ana i te mahinga rori, a ratou ranei, a te Kawanatanga ranei, ka paparua ake te utu mo nga eka katoa e to ratou Whenua. Mehemea erua tekau tonu nga kapiti, puka, a te tangata! hei hokonga mana i te tau, tena ia-e-whiwhi nui mo ratou me hemea kua kite ia i nga tangata erua tekau e hiahia ana ki te hoko i runga atu o nga tangata tokorua. Koia nei nga painga ki nga tangata whai Whenua, tangata noho Whenua ranei, kia whiwhi raua i nga rori pai ma roto i te Whenua, nona, ake ranei, noho noa iho ranei.
