A question has been frequently mooted, which must soon be determined, namely, what course the government will take in respect of judicial rents, which will shortly be legally capable of revision under the 8th section of the Land Act of 1881? Thirty-six thousand tenants are, at present, holding under statutory terms, which will expire in September and November, 1896, and if even a moderately large number of them, or their landlords, are dissatisfied with the judicial rents, or any other matter connected with the hearing and decision of the cases, the Land Commission and County Courts will be flooded with work, and long before the numbers of the earlier cases are sensibly reduced, others will come pouring in from each succeeding gale-day.
