VICTORIAN TOWN PLANNING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 20 July 1914

. ? o VICTORIAN TOWN PLANNING. The Minimum Allotment, Anti-Slum and Hpus-; ing Crusade Committee — despite its clumsy name — is doing good work in Victoria. It has circularised the local governing bodies suggesting that provision be made in the new Local Government Bill that every dwelling house hereafter erected shall have attached thereto for exclusive use of occupiers thereof a prescribed area of land exclusive of roads and footpaths. The Government should need no pressure in this matter, but as it does some extraordinary things at times and at other times leaves things undone, no chances can be taken.

MORE STATE SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 20 July 1914

MORE STATE SOCIALISM. Despite the lamentable experience of the N.S.W. Government, Labor in Federal politics is satisfied to risk more, of the people's money in problematical enterprise. Here is one proposal from the polic}r. speech of Labor-Leader Fisher: — To create an enormous State Produce Department, to sec that country produce is marketed expeditiously. The proposal is that the department should do all the middleman's work of marketing, should advance money at low rates of interest to farmers and settlers, and return to the producer the full return of his produce, less actual cost of running the: department. - The.-' well-known policy of Common wealth-owned steamship lines will doubtless be-' incorporated in this new plank.

"HOUSE DUMPING." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 20 July 1914

'HOUSE DUMPING.' ? 1 The practice of 'dumping' old and dilapidated weatherboard structures from other suburbs in the district is strongly objected to by residents of Bruns wick 'and- Coburg (V.). Under the present regulations all buildings pro posed to be removed to the city must first be approved of by the .surveyor. A new set of build ing regulations is being prepared in which it is proposed that the consent of the council. must be obtained in all cases of removal of second-hand buildings. The council has- decided that all premises which had been approved by the surveyor as being fit for removal to the district should be thoroughly fumigated before admission.

THE FIRE RISK. What Melbourne Intends Doing. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 20 July 1914

THE FIRE RISK. What Melbourne Intends Doing. Amongst the 431 clauses 01 the new .building, regulations to be adopted by the Melbourne City Council some day are certain safeguards that have been inserted to minimise the risk of fire (comments the 'Age'). Warehouses are to be divided into sections* which are to be made fireproof. In other words, each building 350 feet in extent, and having a capacity of '-0.000 cubic feet, must be selfcon tained and completely enclosed in fireproof materials. Stair cases and lift wells connecting divisions are to be isolated by brick Avails or by reinforced concrete construction. . All. doors are to lie of solid wrought iron, or, in the case of wooden doors, iron clad. Of course buildings that are being constructed at the present time, and .any that have been erected during the last three or four years, have had these' safeguards. That is the farce of the legal authority which the council is seeking for the new regulations. Two official referees have ...

REINFORCED CONCRETE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 20 July 1914

REINFORCED CONCRETE. At the last meeting of the Brisbane W. & S. Board a letter was received from Mr. E. G. Stone (of Messrs. Stone and Siddeley) stating that he would visit Brisbane at an early date to try and interest the board in the use of reinforced concrete pipes Avherever possible for the Brisbane scheme, and hinting at the possibility of the installation of a large tactory in .unsDane. 1 ne same writer wrote with a view to being given an opportunity of tender ing for the outfall section of the sewerage work (No. 6, Pinkenba to Luggage Point), which, he understood, the board proposed carrying out by day labor. After discussion, in which it was pointed out that there would be plenty of opportunity for the firm to tender for work in connection with the sewerage scheme, it was decided to reply that the board could not sec its way to alter the basis on which it had decided to carry out the No. G section.

VICTORIAN LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 20 July 1914

VICTORIAN LOCAL GOVERNMENT. ? It is promised by the State Ministry that the Local Government Bill, which was introduced and shelved last year will be re-introduced this session. The main feature of. the Bill is the pro vision of machinery for the compulsory amalgama tion of feeble municipal bodies. It provides for the amalgamation of shires whose revenue from rates on a \j- basis does not reach £1500 per annum, and of boroughs in receipt of less than £300, on a similar basis. A new. clause .of the Bill will allow municipalities to raise money for the purchase of motor 'buses. The Bill will also enable municipalities to pass regulations for preventing owners of land abutting on roads or channels under the ,'cpntrol of the Water Commission from fallowing their land within a certain distance of .the roads or channels. No provision is made for the prevention of coun cils wasting their ratepayers' money by the em ployment of unqualified engineers.

MINISTER GRIFFITH AND HIS CRANES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 July 1914

MINISTER GRIFFITH AND HIS CRANES. Should the official conscience of N.S.W. Minister Griffith ever become sufficiently stricken by the day-labor orgy to induce nightmare, cranes must be numbered among the disturbing elements. Of all the administrative bungling, that connected with cranes ranks next to the day-labor system itself. Several cranes 'were imported some time ago and for quite a Avhile they lay unpacked 'somewhere behind the Mitchell Library. Someone must ultimately have been seized of the possibility of white ants in the packing and rust in the cranes because they were removed — where, nobody seems to know. Anyhow a local crane rises aboA-e the Education Building, which, under the day-labor system, is being 'pushed ahead' with the speed of a hobbled elephant. , ? + ? . _ It in very pertinently remarked by 'The Clarence and Richmond River Examiner,' that the practice of trades unionists calling stop work meetings is a great grievance with employers. These are in flat A'iola...

A BUILDING DISPUTE. Builder and Architect. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 July 1914

A BUILDING DISPUTE. ' Builder and Architect. An action was brought before Judge Box, in the Victorian County Court, lasc week, to recover money in connection with a contract to build a house. According to the 'Age' report, plaintiff was James Michael Dennis, of Williams Road, Windsor, and defendants were Charles Prince and Co.. of .High Street. St. Kilda, estate agents. Mr. H. Walker (instructed by Mr. . Nigan) appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Dethridere ('instructed by Messrs. Ellison and Hewison) for defendants. The case for plaintiff was that defendants entered into a contract with plaintiff to build a house at St. Kilda for £500. Difficulties arose over the speci fications, exception being taken to certain work that was being done. Plaintiff, it was asserted, was asked to carry the walls of the building a.foot higher than was provided in the plan. 'Notes' of the extras were demanded by plaintiff, and when these were not forthcoming he directed his workmen to stop, and Prince and ...

STATE ENTERPRISE. Bungling in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 July 1914

STATE ENTERPRISE. Bungling in Victoria. State Enterprise is credited with having reached the zenith of bungling and. extravagance in the engi neering undertakings connected with the Koowee rup Swamp Settlement (V.). Some startling state ments were made at a recent meeting of settlers held to protest against -the proposal of the Govern ment to make a levy of £55,000 upon the swamp. ±. ?*(.), OUU ot which was to be the settlers share. The work was comprehensively described by one speaker as 'one of the historic bungles of the State.' He proceeded: 'If a Royal Commission were ap pointed it would find that the first cost for draining the swamp, comprising 53,000 acres, was £S0,000. but that was the merest trifle to the sums expended since. Requisitions for more money were regularly put in by the drainage engineer throughout the whole of the time since the beginning, with repeated assurances that 'this would be the-last.' What the total amounted to had. never been officially published.''...

The Engineer in Local Government. MAIN ROADS BOARD. How it is Working in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 July 1914

The Engineer in Local Government. MAIN ROADS BOARD. How it is Working in Victoria. The objectors to the constitution of a Main Roads Board in New South Wales might read with interest the success of the Victorian institution. According ; to a recent article in the 'Age,' the penny wise and ; pound foolish standard of road and bridge construe- ; tion to which many country municipalities have confined themselves in the past, mostly because of veal or self-imposed poverty, is scorned by the Country Roads Board, as it is called in Victoria. Not only have more enduring standards of road construction been determined, but the board is now preparing to improve the quality of country bridges. The great -majority of bridges hitherto made by municipal councils, with or without financial assist ance from the Government, are cheap, weak and relatively transitory. A solid and enduring, bridge is a rarity in the Victorian country districts unless it was built before the present form of local govern...

SAWDUST FOR ROAD-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 July 1914

SAWDUST FOR ROAD-MAKING. »' Some' time ago Councillor Brett, of Nanango Council (Q.), wrote us requesting that L.G. Engineers should let him have the benefit of their experience as regards sawdust roads. At the last council meeting Councillor Brett pro duced a .'sample of sawdust which had been turned into bricks by the addition of a small portion of earth, and which, he contended, was valuable for road-making purposes. He said he had placed some of it on the roads at Blackbutt, and the result had been splendid. The council's overseer vouched for the accuracy of the statement that a , team of bullocks with a laden waggon had passed over the treated road and had hardly made an impression on it. The members .of the council were so satisfied that they had discovered a first-class road-making' material that they decided to lay a large quantity of it down on the principal street in Blackbutt. Should the experiment prove successful it will open up a way for disposing profitably of a waste...
