SAFETY OF STEEL CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
SAFETY OF STEEL CARS. In the event of a heavy collision, wooden railway cars fail, either by going entirely to pieces or by one of the massive and strong underframes mounting upon another, and shearing the superstructure of the lower car entirely from its base. Wooden con struction has the disadvantage that, although its strength to resist the first shock is great, once it has given way it offers but little progressive re sistance to the crushing and rending energy of the collision; whereas the tough metal of which steel cars are built, not only offers a much greater resistance to the first shock, but, after the car or cars have begun to give way, the material still puts up a stub born fight to retain its original form. The behaviour of trains of steel cars in collisiolis shows that the end plat S" * € whrich eare not by the pas *gPand "ymeld S a- g the firsi t energy of . iie collision, and generally the whole of it, is expended in crumpling up the vestibules-furthermore, this usun...

The Danger of Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
The Danger of Fire. It is to be hoped that everyone will be careful in thle use of lire now that tile thermometer ranges so high in the nine ties, and that everything is as dry as tinder. The recent disastrous vaterside fires at Aspendale. Chelsea. etc., alford a lesson; and it is regrettablo that several local-residents ha-o ihereby lost their sea wide catmping-out houses. As a general rule picnickers take too many risks after having boiled the hilly, by leaving the fire to take care of itself, or else by allowing some smonld5ig em bers to remain and s~tariltit 7-~tuih atlvltV lvtll-r t th ssfttouflng breeze.

Essondon Council Estimatns. The estimates of receipts and expendi ture are published in our reading columns for general information, and show total estimated receipts of t30,500.

It is now or never for this --while the council his the solid advam tages of the loan expenditures, which ought to effect saving a heavy dratin oni the general revenue.

WANDERING COW NUISANCE [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
WANDERING COW NUISANCE Almost every suburb suffers from the wandering cow nuisance, and, notwith standing that the cows are arrested by the municipal cow-catchers, and the owners fined before the courts, owners of these animals still offend. So bad is the nuisance that. the municipalities of Footscray and Williainstown have proposals before them for prohibiting the keeping of cows within those municipalities. If Essendon cow own ers be not more careful there will be a movement set going to prohibit cow keeping within this city also. It will then be too late to repent. Already there are numbers of ratepayers who bit4erly complain of the wandering cows, so that offenders need not expect to bo allowed to keep cows much longer, unless ithoy show nlore con sideration to the general public. We are not making iny complaint as to the really excellent way in which our municipal inspectors perform their work, as they practically earn their salaries in the fines inflicted. But our purpose is t...
CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
---- -. --- . .C CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor. " Sir,-Your remarkably good reports of council meetings are seldom open to exception, but I trust that in fairness to me you will permit me to explain c that at the last 'meeting of the Bulla Shire Council I proposed that investi pect of a combined effort being made by the three councils iriterested, as sisted by the Country Roads Board, to have the road from Essendon to Bulla (not Konagaderrer) put in first-class order, possibly by tar sprinkling, as is being done by the Melbourne City Council, for a total cost of .9 of a penny (nine tenths of a penny) per square yard. This road now probably cost us as much or more than my pro posal would, and my proposal would preserve the light grit '(the best por tion of any road) from being washed and blown away by every wind and rain, I trust iny proposal I may make will at all times bear the closest in vestigation as this will.-Yours, etc., FRANK BUCKLEY.
