This Is an age of tho application of Science to Local Government services. Australia to-day Is in her constructional age, and the highest scientific methods are being utilised In all constructional services, of which those of Local Government are of supreme Importance. Local Government, although It has only been on Its trial for the past few years has developed a class of professional men, who have won a high position In national development. The health and prosperity of a district depend upon the practical skill of the man in charge of the «ervloei. It shall be our aim to fight for the best recognition of the worth of those men who are really the backbone of Looal Government development and national prosperity.

But I hold that this is one of the occasions when the presidential address, must be judged by its' brevity; We have assembled for a specific purr pose, and I shall not raise issues that could, perhaps; ' remove. our concentration from the road problem, ' but shall reserve my remarks for the debate on the .many important phases of the problem which I note are to be discussed. \ It behoves me, however, to say that this Confer^ enc...

LORD-MAYOR RICHARDS, M.Inst.C.E. An Engineer Speaks to Engineers. (Continued from last week). [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

LORD-MAYOR RICHARDS, M.Inst.C.E. An Engineer Speaks to Engineers. (Continued from last week). - There was a paper to be read: 'VVhy Roads are 'Bad and Mow They can be Improved.' The first and last thing was to look after the foundations and the surface drainage. 'The Composite Road' was the title of another paper to be read. That was a road that would require a great deal of watching. Engineers would be besieged with materials and would be told much of their respective virtues as regards wearing. In nine cases out of ten it was an experiment, and the engineer should be careful to protect him self. He could do this by enquiring how far the firm, or the individual wishing to supply the material, would go in taking the risk that the material would stand. There was a paper to be read on 'Reinforced Concrete Pipes in Local Government Construction.' He would say that such pipes had come to stay. Their General Secretary (Mr. Taylor) was to read a paper on 'Engineers and the Road Problem,' ...
