Control of Traffic. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Control of Traffic. Culcairn Council receh'ed a letter from the Shires Association, stating that the question of control of traffic in public places is most important and difficult, and that the regulation of traffic has a wider meaning than the regulation of speed. From a pe rusal of Act 28, 1909, sub-section. 11 of section 75, it would appear that regulating the weights of loads or classes of traffic crossing bridges, is included in its provisions.

QUESTION OF CONVERSION. An Important Appeal. The case which stands as the most important heard before the Land Ap peal Court for some time, was that dealt with in a decision of the Court, delivered on March 9. It raised the question of what is a home mainten ance area, and what value should be placed upon a settlement lease, which the lessee desired to convert into an original conditional purchase and a conditional lease.

(Syd.), F.R.S.I.G.B., presides. "Is the doctor visible?" I ask of the young lady who attends to the visitors. I am requested to wait for a little while, and to take a seat in a rather dingy anteroom, from which I watch the assistants, arrayed in spotless white, at their work cultiva ting various bacilli, micr.obes, and other micro-organisms in one of the laboratories. They go about their work quite unconcerned, yet they are dealing with the germs of some of the most death-dealing diseases known. The thought of this almost made me shudder. I casually said to the young lady, "There ought to be plenty of microbes about here," "Oh, yes/5 was the reply, "this is the happy hunting grounds of the ...

SUSSEX-STREET. Trade in Sussex-street is quiet, though the -last few days have had a hardening- effect on the market, and. there is a little more movement all round,, but no perceptible, change in prices, except perhaps in potatoes, which are slightly better. The trouble in " the Street" is going to be about the scarcity arising from the damage by excessive rains of so much grain and fodder. It is hard, eA'en now, to secure prime samples of any of the leading lines. There is a considerable quantity of potatoes coming lorwarrt for next week from Tasmania, but a great quantity of them are all'ectetl by .?Irish-blight. During the week 980 bags were condemned out of a Tas manian shipment landed on the Union wharf, and 300 bags of a shipment discharged on the Federal wharf . .The cruel part of this business is that the potatoes are examined and passed as sound before being shipped. .Current quotations are : Chatt.-South Australian: Wlieaten, prime,, £3/15/ to £4 for choice.
