More Small Holding's. I To the Editur d the "Star." Sir, Britain will never be a great food pro- ducing country until its land system is changed. Instead of trying to get more acres under the plough, what is needed is more intensive and thorough cultiva- tion, and that can be best be obtained through smaller beddings and less large farms. What we want are peasant pro- prietors. The great blot on «the 1908 Small Holdings Act is that, under it, the small-holder was put in a position of buying the holding for the County Counci l instead of for himself. Next to cV~ ownership of the freehold more capi- t 1 is essential. You cannot cultivate the land successfully and having the maximum of produce out of it unless you have a capital of at least equivalent to twenty pounds per acre. Of course I know irery wetf illtat tirtgr cam farm some- how with capital less than that. But those days have passed, at least I hope so. There has been a great amount of talk—and talk is cheap-about, i-e- peopling the countryside and rebuilding the agricultural industry but that can- not be done unless ownership of small- holdings is granted. John Stuart Mill said: "Give a man the secure possession of a l'deak rock, and he will turn it into a garden; give a nine years' lease of a garden, and he will convert it into a desert. The magic of property turns sand to geld." Land and liberty, and not liberty and land. on cannot have liberty 'without la.nd. Back to the land first and the i back to the home—you '•auiiot have home without land. I am, etc., I Tnmsaran, T. E. DA YIES, I 12th Sept., 1917. E. DAA-IES.
