General Regulations

General Regulations.

Before Land in the Province can be disposed of to Europeans, the title of the Aboriginal Natives must be extinguished, and clauses 3, 4, and 16, have reference to and are intended to faciliate purchases of land by the Government from the native owners, by granting to the natives themselves a Crown title to portions of Land sold by them, and also by providing that Europeans who have lived on Native Lands and acquired influence with them, should be secured in possession of their homesteads, difficulty having been experienced in acquiring land, owing to the opposition of such persons to its sale by the Natives. The remaining clauses of the section relate to the division of the land, its mode of survey and sale.
