Dangerous Manhole Covers. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Dangerous Manhole Covers. At the last meeting of tlie Water and Sewerage Board, a letter was re ceived from the Balniain Council, drawing attention to the fact that several accidents had occurred in tlie municipality by reason of sewer man hole covers and hydrant boxes pro jecting above the surface of the road way, and requesting that the road way be tarpaved for some distance round the same, so that the levels of the road may be made more perma nent. The Board explained that the res ponsibility rested with the council, seeing that the Board always fixed margin stones round tlie manholes to the proper levels. If the council then allowed the roadway to wear away till these stones stood above the level of the road, it was certainly their fault, and no blame could rest wit^ the Board. The same can be said of the iron boxes on the footpath. These are often to be found some inches above the level . of the foot path. Originally they were placed to the level of the path, but if the path wa...

Sculling. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Sculling. The next big event in the sculling world is the Harry Pearce-Syd. Kemp match for £100 a side and the Aus tralian championship on the Parra matta a fortnight hence. The match is generally regarded as " a gift" to Pearce, who has won five matches in succession for the title. Kemp must have improved wonderfully to tackle a man of Pearce's calibre. A match is practically fixed up be tween Hagney and I'elton for £50' a side. "After I beat Felton I will: challenge Pearce again," stated Hag ney a few days ago to the writer ; and he added, " I'll beat him, too." Hagney is very well just now, and would give Pearce a great race. Dick Arnst is on the high road to recovery after his illness, and will be in his boat again a iew weeks' hence. He is off to England a few months hence. W. Fogwell left for New Zealand on Saturday for his match for £200 a side with Whelch on Easter Mon day. Prior to his departure he lodged a deposit of £25 for a match with the winner of the Pearce-Kemp racte...
Motoring [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Motoring As anticipated, only one entry was received for the Motor Boat Cham pionship of Australasia, fixed for to morrow, and Mr. Anthony Horderns 35-knot hydroplane, Kangaroo, will have a walk-over to obtain a leg-in for the Griffith Shield. A. S. Jones put up rather a re markable performance in the Sydney Motor Cycle Club's Speed Judging Competition. He was asked to aver age 15 miles an hour over an eight miles' course, and rode it in the exact time allotted-32min. It is doubtful whether such a perform ance has been put up anywhere else the world over. Mr. Jones must be a great judge of pace. He, of course, won the competition. The motor cycle reliability trial of the Sydney Club to Bathurst and back at Easter drew a large entry, and an interesting competition is as sured. The Motor Cycle Club of New South Wales also has a very good entry in hand for its trial to Nowra and back. The first day's run will be to Nowra, on Good Friday, and the Saturday and Sunday will be spent tourin...
Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Boxing. " I've lost my dash," said Joe Costa at the Stadium on Saturday night after he had been so soundly trounced by Jack Howard that the police stopped the fight in the fifth round, and Snowy Baker awarded the fight to Howard. There is no doubt about it either, Costa has lost his dash. He once promised to be a great boxer, but has not fulfilled expectations by a long way. He never looked to have a chance against Howard, and he took the count to nine seconds three times in the fifth round before the police stopped proceedings. Costa was a tired inan when three rounds hau been fought, and wore a very disgruntled appearance as he came out for the fourtn. He looked like a man who had not trained, and this probably accounted for his easy defeat. After his sorry exhibition Costa is not likely to be seen in ac tion again at the Stadium. Howard shaped very well, and showed a big improvement on the form which won for him against Colin Bell. He is a very likely sort, and with a little more...
Government Subdivisions. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Government Subdivisions. The Engineer of Cessnock Shire, (Mr. G. F. Lindeman) has submitted to the council a lengthy report on the subject of non-formation of streets in Government subdivisions. An idea of the injustice done. to the shire by the Government in not clear ing the streets of subdivisions (the same as private individuals who sub divide are compelled to do), could be gleaned by a perusal of the list of subdivisions wherein the streets re main to be cleared: The list was prepared for the information of the Minister in support of the President's remarks to the Minister at the con ference which he attended recently at Newcastle regarding the distress which existed through slackness of work. After enumerating a number of the subdivisions, their condition, and the cost to put them in a fit state for traffic, Mr. Lindeman summarised them as follows, viz.:-To properly clear, form, and culvert all the streets of recent Government subdivisions, Avould cost at the least £15,000. It...

Formation of Roads in Subdivisions. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Formation of Roads in Subdivisions. Hyde Council received letters at the last meeting from two different firms on the subject of subdivision roads. The first, intimating that they had let a contract for the completion of the roads and lane in accordance with the plan, the work to be completed to the satisfaction of the council's engineer within a month. They would give a personal under taking that the formation of the roads would be completed in accord ance with the present requirements of the council, and asked that the council approve of the plan at this meeting, so that the vendors might be in a position to complete titles to purchasers. It was decided that a cash guarantee of £100 be accepted. The other stated that they were unaware, when they fixed the date of the sale, that it would be necessary that the road should be actually formed prior to the sale. They would either allow the council to make the road in question, or would give any guarantee, if required, that it would be ...
Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Football. The Rugby League matches will attract very large attendances this season, judging by the crowds that witnessed the practice matches on Saturday. The Balmain-Newtown match at Metters' Ground, attracted 1500 spec tators, and Newtown, showing ex cellent form for so early in the sea son, won Dy 18 to 7. The South Sydney-Eastern Sub urbs match was exciting, the former winning by a point-13 to 12. Two thousand spectators witnessed the play. Glebe were altogether too good for North Sydney, winning by 16 to 7. South Sydney played a Possible v. Probable match at the Agricul tural Ground in which two New Zea landers;-Wilson (of Ponsonby) and Brett (of Auckland)-played. Both are good men. The Annandale-Western Suburbs game was won by the former by 3 to 2-very low scoring for the Northern Union game. The best form on the day was shown by Strickland, the Glebe three quarter, who scored two great tries, and was very good in defence. Fifteen prominent players who were in the Rugby Union ...
Friendly Appeal Courts. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Friendly Appeal Courts. What are known as friendly appeal courts are very good institutions, if conducted properly. Of course, "we would not infer that any council would conduct it improperly inten tionally, but our attention is drawn to the action of the Warrah Shire, in deciding that the appellants be aslced to meet the valuator at the shire office, so that an endeavour may be made to arrive at a compromise with regard to the assessments. A deci sion may be come to in a friendly way which would be amicable to both parties, without the necessity of the appellant attending the Appeal Court. The council's-representative could at tend the court and inform the bench, and a decision would be given accord ingly. At the same time the appel lant would not be deprived of his privilege of attending the court, and prosecuting his appeal before the ma gistrate. This is a practical way of disposing of the appeals, far more satisfactory to all parties-including the Bench, who is glad to be relie...
Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
Cricket. The tenth round of grade cricket was ushered in on Saturday after noon in fine weather, and the wickets were all in excellent order. Most interest was centred in the Redfern-Gordon match, as it is gene rally conceded that the victorious team will annex the premiership with only another round to be played. Victor Trumper won the toss, and Redfern took tne field. There was a record crowd for a club match, 10,000 going out to tne Redfern Oyal in the hope of seeing Trumper and Macart ney bat. The only " Vic." did not get going, however, for he was stumped when he had scored 34. It was a very quiet innings for the world's champion; batsman. Macartney played brilliantly for 52, when he was caught off Emery. " Noss" Iredale had several lives be fore he was caught and bowled by Emery. Lobban put together 40 and Shortland 30, but the other Gordon ites Avere dismissed cheaply, and the side only totalled 237-a poor score. Gordon have a most pronounced " tail.."

4.-Rates on Forfeited Lands Auction Purchases. (Case).-Rates and interest are due and unpaid on certain allot ments of land within this shire, for some two years. The council have recently been informed by the Law Department that the lands have been annulled, and all moneys paid thereon forfeited for non-payment of the balance of the purchase money. (Q-)--Can the council legally aban don the rates and interest due? or must the arrears be kept in the council's books, and when the land in question is re-sold by the Crown the new owner takes up and pays the arrears? (vide decision given by Mr. Justice Sly, some few months ago). (A.).-I do not think the council should abandon the rates and inter est, but that the arrears should be brought forward in the council's books, and that a new owner will have to pay the arrears. The case of Friskin v. Byrnes, mentioned, ap jjlies.

5.—Rectories and Clergymen's Residences. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
5.-Rectories and Clergymen's Resi dences. (Q.).-Can you tell me if the Jttigli Court lias delivered judgment in the appeal to them on the question as to whether rectories and clergymen's residences are ratable? (A.).-I am not aware that the question of rating rectories and clergymen's residences, has been be fore the High Court. The Full Court of N.S.W., in November, 1909, deci ded that the exemption incluilcj in the words "land occupied by and used in connection with the build ings hereinafter mentioned-"Chur ches and other buildings used exclu sively for public worship" was limi ted to land used in connection with churches not as institutions, but as buildings: and that other land used in connection with the residence of the minister of a church could not be said to be used in connection with the church building itself-merely be cause it adjoined the church land, or was used by the minister of the church.

6.-Rating of Parsonage. (Case).-The parsonage,, is erected, on land which is some hundreds of yards distant from the church lands, and the building is used only for re sidential purposes. (Q.).-Are tnese lands ratable or not ? (A.).-1. I am of opinion that a rectory erected on land some hundred yards distant from the church lands, and used solely for residential pur poses, is ratable. 2.-I believe that District Court Judge Murray so decided in May last. 3. As doubtless the council is aware there are a number of conflicting magisterial decisions on the matter.
7.—Rate Levied Without Notice. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
.Rate Levied Without Notice. (Q.) 1.-Could a rate levied by reso lution at a properly constituted meeting of a council, at which five out of six councillors were present, be invalidated on the ground, taken up by the - councillor who was not present, that no notice was given on the business paper, calling the meet ing at which the rate resolution was ' carried, that the levying of a rate would be dealt with? 2. It is, of course, recognised that the resolution would have to be con firmed at a subsequent meeting to complete the business of the rate levy. (A.).-1. I assume-it not being stated-that the business now under consideration, was not brought in under the president's minute. 2. I think the business was im properly before the meeting by rea son that ordinance 1 clause 9, pro viding that-"No business shall be brought before the council unless no tice of such business has been posted or given to each of the councillors within the time prescribed by the .council;" lias not been com...
