BUTTER FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 3 April 1914
BUTTER FOR EXPORT. Towards tho end of last year in structions were issued by the Minister for Customs "(Mr Groom) to the effect that managers of factories, who de sired to secure certificates from the Customs department, under commerco regulation 43, should be permitted to do so without the necessity of having the grade mark stampod oh the boxes.

Of the Victorian applicants 17 had formerly had their butter boxes "grade marked" but the Minister is gratified to dis cover thai -14 other factory managers have appreciated his efforts.

The wholo troublo occurred in less than a minute, but over two hours was oc cupied in restoring normal condition*. The fusing of the wires' was as sensational as it was unexpected. Persons standing at the intersection of Kooyong road and High street, Armadale, at first noticed a pungent smell of burnt rubber from the elec tric switch-box, which is undor the footpath, and to which access is gained through the lifting of a heavy trap-door.

Parliament, and the public were &nbsp; stirred to their depths a year or two ago by revelations as to the systematic loafing done by telephone tunnel men '"on the job." During the last week or two I have had a lengthened opportunity of realising that the "man on the job" is not dead but flourishes like a green bay free in the department. Some time ago (writes a corrQspondent) all., the telephones' in the building where I Am located, were connected with underground wires, after lengthy operations involving the continual cut ting off the 'phone. A week or two ago another official came along and, after fiddling abont for a day or two, announced that everything was now all right with number 001.
