GOOD ROADS. "The Sydney Press" Again. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 22 June 1914

GOOD ROADS. 'The Sydney Press' Again. The Good Roads Association has recently issued a manifesto which takes the form of an appeal for public support and a statement of the means by which it hopes to attain its object. It has no diffi culty in proving that the evil which it attacks exists and is of universal concern. The condition of the roads throughout the State is a fact which, strikes every visitor with astonish ;ment and indignation. . . . J. here are, ot course, (exceptions to the general indictment. In some jdistricts the roads arc lit for the needs of a civilised ^existence. ? But there are many parts of the country in which .the state of the Sydney and suburban roads is 'approached, if not equalled. The remedies proposed ?,by the association have evidently been very care ?fully considered. Its proposal of a central' board .'for inspection and advice will meet with universal asseiit, and has in substance been approved by the local government engineers and the Shires Associa ...

TREE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 22 June 1914

? «, ? TREE PROTECTION. The Conservator of Forests (V.) wrote to Tem plestowe. Council: — 'Unless shire councils heartily co-operate -with' the forests department in protect ing the natural tree growth on the roads, there will in the end be neither shade nor shelter left on these highways, and either the State or the councils will be put .to great expense in partially restoring arti ficially the fine natural cover which has been des troyed. Apart from this the price of timber re quired for; municipal works such as bridges and culverts' is steadily increasing, and on many roads the cost of renewals and maintenance of small bridges and culverts could Undoubtedly be kept down by strictly conserving the timber which is at times ringbarked on the roads by neighboring land owners.'

ENERVATED ENOGGERA. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 22 June 1914

enervated' enoggera. From a Brisbane correspondent: — Happy-go-lucky Enoggera Council (Q.) seems to be in danger of being made get a move. on. ?, At the last meeting the Auditor-General wrote stating that the auditor's report disclosed an unsatisfactory state of affairs during the last four months of the year 19.13. The banking operations, he said, had been irregular, and the council displayed consider able laxity in not obtaining a fidelity bond from the then clerk. The ratebook, it was added, had not been signed in the usual way. He asked for a list of arrears which had been written off, and the reasons. The arrears of general rates had increased by £200. .Since 1912, lie said, the council's in debtedness to the Treasury, at the end of last De cember, was £227 for arrears. If the Auditor-General gets more than a yawn out of the council he is lucky.

WILD WINDSOR. A wild Windsor ratepayer questions the state ment of the local mayor that the council .bought -a stonecrusher without having borrowed the money. He insists: — 'If not from the Government, then from its bank, as at the beginning of this month, when it held its meeting and struck the rate for 191-1- the council owed the bank £0953/5/1. I am quite satisfied sufficient rates have not been col lected since to clear this and pay about £000 for the crusher and engine.'' ? . . '*''Why argue? -The point is that the stonecrusher has. been purchased.

INSTITUTES OF ENGINEERS. An Incorporation Movement. At a recent meeting of the Victorian Institute of lingineers, the chief business was the consideration of a motion submitted by Mr. J. S.

THE EIGHT-HOUR DAY. Can We Afford It? [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 22 June 1914

THE EIGHT-HOUR DAY. Can We Afford It? The N.S.W. Minister for Labor recently admitted the Government's definite decision to have the eight hour working day apply in all industries. Last session the Legislative Council rejected a Bill that sought to give statutory recognition of the eight-hour day in all those industries in which the ' awards. stipulated that period of labor. The objec tion of the Council was that it was unnecessary to embody in legislative form a provision that was already law under awards of the industrial court. This attitude was quite correct. Now with a more substantial majority the Government believes that it will be able to com mand a more favorable reception for a measure of much wider significance. 'Whether this assumption be correct or otherwise the policy of a uniform eight-hour day will stilt remain open to question until time and results pro vide conclusive proof. As we previously stated, a country in the initial stages of development', such as Australia...

ARCHITECTS' PLANS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 22 June 1914

ARCHITECTS' PLANS. A correspondent to' the press recently asked whether she was entitled to have the plans of a cottage which she is having built, if she paid for them. We have answered that question before, but as enquiries continue we might repeat :— There is no doubt whatever now that in the absence of a special agreement plans and drawings prepared by architects are the property .of the per son who pays for them. True, architects have tried to set up a custom contrary to this, but the Court has refused to entertain it. The law on the subject is, perhaps, best stated in a modern case thus bv one iudee: 'The 'architect rpftisp.rl tn ha ml over the plans and sued for payment, setting up a custom among architects to retain their plans if the work was not proceeded with. The contract. . . resulted in the making of plans, the property in which passed to the building owner on pay ment. I find a difficulty in distinguishing this case from that of a contract to paint a 'picture or to des...

RAILWAY BUILDING CONTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 22 June 1914

RAILWAY BUILDING CONTRACTS. A deputation representing the Victorian Master Builders' Association recently requested the Railway Commissioners to abolish the system when calling for tenders of quoting schedules of rates, and ask for lump sum tenders. It was explained that the existing system of requesting tenders was to a large extent responsible for the fact that many prominent members of the Associa tion did not supply quotations for railway work, as it involved much clerical work and considerable mi»in!iirincv rif rmnntitioc Tf flip 1nmii sum c-irctmn were introduced nearly all the members of the Association would be prepared to submit tenders. The Commissioners promised to consider the request. In reply to a reference made to their decision to have the new jolimont car shed built by day labor, they stated that the work was very urgent, and had tenders been invited there would have been great delay involved in the preparing of detailed plans and specifications. As it was, they wer...
