TEMORA. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

TEMORA. From H. Whitford, Temora's (N.S.W.) Sanitary Inspector : — 'In to-day's issue of the Temora 'Star,' your comments on the Temora Municipal Council were re-printed, and as some of the statements are not correct, I would be pleased if you would compare same with the tacts set out below, viz. : — Revenue, 1913, £5273/0/10. Salaries at 31/12/13 : Town Clerk, £200; Assistant Clerk, £104; Inspector, £208 (including forage allowance) ; Roads Overseer, £23-1; Electrical Engineer,. £250; total, £1050. 'No permanent engineer is employed, but a quali fied man engaged when required. The alleged sensational report of the inspector, commented on in a Sydney paper in February last, was only sub mitted in January, so could not be mentioned in a 191.3 report. . - 'Although grateful for any assistance towards obtaining a higher salary, I for one, do not wish to be credited, or discredited, with being poorly paid.'

THE BATTLE FOR A SQUARE DEAL FOR CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

THE BATTLE FOR A SQUARE DEAL FOR CANBERRA. Peace reigns o'er the field of battle. The Curtis contingent has retired, chagrined and crushed. Its policy was evidently to keep up a desultory fire till the return of Walter Burley Griffin, and then endeavor to draw him into the melee. The first shot was fired after Mr. Griffin had left for America. On first thoughts one would have generously excused the attack, because it was made upon the first publication of the preliminary design. One might also have been inclined to charitably consider that the criticisms were inspired by patriotic mo tives; that all desired was that Australia should get the best possible design for her capital city. But the attacks upon the designer discounted that belief, and suggested that the real object was to drag this great question from the pedestal of national signifi cance into the gutter of professional jealousy. Having had good time to study the accepted plan, our Editor was well versed in its details. Ha...

BRICKWORK REINFORCEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

BRICKWORK REINFORCEMENT. Scarcely a necessity arises in the constructional world, but it is sooner or later met by the inventive genius characteristic of modern times. For many years brick walls and structures requiring reinforce ment were strengthened by embedding hoop iron, or some other similar bond in the courses of the bricks at varying intervals. Now a special brick work reinforcement — Exmet by name — is on the market, under the capable agency of Elliott, Maclean & Co. (Reinforced Concrete Specialists), of Sydney. This firm has never associated its name with anything shoddy, and 'Exmet,' while assured of a good demand, is also fortunate in having a firm so favorably known to constructionists to push it. 'Exmet' is a really scientific brickwork rein iorcement, having many advantages over any material hitherto on the market. It is made in three weights, or strengths, from 24, 22 and 20 gauge, best mild steel, and is supplied in widths of 2tin., Tin. and 12in. There are ...

KOGARAH UNIQUE. Rate Instead of Loan. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

KOGARAH UNIQUE. Rate Instead of Loan. We are not of those who decry without enquiry the raising of loans. Very few bodies can get along as they should without borrowing. Yet the very mention of 'loan' carries the same suggestion as 'Socialism' used a few years ago. It must be admitted, however, that the council that can carry out large permanent works out of a local rate is worthy of commendation. Mayor Smith claims this accomplishment for Kogarah (N.S.W.). He says, in his annual report : — 'For the first time in the history of this council — in fact, I think I might with safety say in the his tory of the State — permanent work of considerable magnitude has been undertaken per medium of a local rate. Alternative proposals were submitted to the council for carrying out the work by means of a loan and a local rate, and it was shown that by the latter proposal the work, the actual cost of which would be about £19,000, could be done by a local rate at a saving of several thousand pounds...

THE SLATERS ON STRIKE. Church Work and "Dirt Money"—And a Lot More Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

THE SLATERS ON STRIKE. Church Work and 'Dirt Money' — And a Lot More Wanted. Secretary Richards reported at last week's meet ing of the N.S.W. Master Builders' Association, that shortly after the previous meeting, the Slaters, Tilers and Shinglers' Wages Board published their Award, granting the men an increase of 1/- per day in wages, besides other concessions. On the day following the gazettal of the award, members of the Slaters' Union came out on' strike, the men demanding a still further increase of 1/ per day (.14/ as against the Award rate of 13/-), and on being refused left their jobs. The increase granted by the Wages Board had the result of placing slaters on a level with the highest paid trades in the building trade, and higher than a good many other trades. By means of Wages Board Awards and a previous strike, the men in this trade have obtained increases of ' '-)/- per day during the short period of -\i years, as com- ' pared with the increases granted by Awards and agr...

FIGHTING THE GOVERNMENT'S BATTLE. A Wages Board Matter. Master Builders Object. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

FIGHTING THE GOVERNMENT'S BATTLE. A Wages Board Matter. Master Builders Object. Acting on a report from the Secretary, the N.S.W. Master Builders' Association, at its last meeting, protested against the Government, and the Railway Commissioners in particular, not being represented as employers on a Wages Board affecting their interests as employers, but leaving it to the Public Works Contractors' Association, which, it was anrucd, was, at least, not so directly interested since the establishment of the day labor regime. The report read : — 'I received notice of application before Laborers' No. I Board, to deal with laborers employed in the construction of railways, train ways, -roads, bridges, etc. The lowest rate of wages claimed was .1/(5 for pick and shovel men; 2 IS separate and distinct claims for rates of wages arc included, amongst others — 1/'7-A for concrete mixers and barrowmen, 1/8 for drivers of concrete mixers, 1/T for brick layers' laborers, 2/- for plasterers, 2/3 for...

A HINT FOR HIGHER RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 April 1914

A HINT FOR HIGHER RATES. A correspondent to a N.S.W. country newspaper gives a certain council the broad hint to raise the rate and give the return in better roads : — 'The best bit of road in the area is a piece that has been privately constructed by Mr. Alf. Buxton, of the Hotel Delungra. Mr. Buxton became tired of waiting for something to be done by the council, so set about and made a small gravel track to his hotel. One resident, in complaining to the writer, said : 'We arc sick and tired of waiting for the coun cil to do anything for us. They make the scarc ity of money their excuse for not fixing up the roads, but that should be no excuse at all. They are the people who levy the taxes, and if they do not make them sufficient to properly maintain the shire, it is their own fault. I am quite prepared to pay another penny in the £1 if we can only get the roads fixed up.' '
