The Price of Bread. The Brick Board, with Mr Martin Hannah; Mi.L.A., as chairman, is now preparing its report. The menibers are uy no means unanimous. According to the evidence of Colonel Watson, of the Public Works Department, and Mr F. E. Shillaheer, the bricks made abolut Melbourne are better than those made in any part of Australia, al though the prices are much lower. In Melbourne tire price for the best bricks is 36is per t-housand. In Adelaide and Sydney the price is 45s. According to the evidence of Mr H. F. Young, the chairman of the Northlcote Company, the formation of the Brick Association was absolutely necessary to place the brick trade on a satisfactory basis, it having been given in evidence that be fore its .formation the whole of- the brick trade- was being worked at a loss--hardly a company but - what was insolvent. -The worlkmen tlhen were getting- -exceedingly low wages, -and some companies not being able to pay that. It hag not been found that any restraint of t...
