ALLOTMENTS IN NEWTON. AN EXTRAORDINARY APPLICANT. An interesting insight was afforded at Mon- day's meeting of the Newton Parish Council into the demand for small holdings and allot- ments, to satisfy which an Act was passed by tho Radical Government, and will come into force in January next. The Clerk (Air. James Prince) submitted the following letter, which ii-) had received:—"41, Ermine-road, Hoole, parish of Newton, 7th De- cember, 1907. Dear sir,—I am an applicant for an allotment of five acres or thereabouts. I wa.nt a'so a oot,tago and the usual eas?ments and outbuildings.
