DEPOSITS ON TENDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 4 August 1914

DEPOSITS ON TENDERS! The Town Clerk, Sydney, in reporting to the Council recently regarding deposits on tenders, stated that if- deposits submitted with tenders were calculated on a percentage .basis on the amountof tender the possibility of grave abuse would exist. All deposits ought to be one fixed sum in relation to any given tender, to be made by all tenderers ' alike. No departure should be made from this regulation.

CONTRACT AND DAY LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 4 August 1914

„ CONTRACT -ANR DAY LABOR. ?* ... ' * '' ? ? v. ?'?'?? t_ Spctiking oii the question of contract v. day labor recently, Minister Griffith said that the President of the Water and Sewerage Board had explained to him that the Board, by a recent award which penal ised it as against the contractor to the extent of nearly 30 per cent., had been driven to practically giving the whole of the laying of mains for water supply and sewerage outside the city proper into the hands of contractors. The award fixes the depot of the Walter Board as the employers' 'shop,1 thus compelling it to pay not only fares, but travelling time from this point to the place where the men are employed, possibly miles away. On a recent job which the Board carried out by direct employ ment it was found that nearly one-third of the ex penditure on labor went in these fares and travelling time. The contractor, on the other hand, makes the site of the job his '.shop,' and does not have to pay these charges. Tic is thus...

THE LATEST. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 4 August 1914

THE LATEST. It is a poor industry, trade, or profession, that does not produce a periodical yarn. The building trade is' rather too prosaic to produce many, but the latest supplied by, a certain Sydney daily should hold the fort for some time. Here it is: — A cry for help resounded through Cathedral Square, Christchurch, one recent night. A passer-by ran up to see what was the matter, and was astounded to find a man tightly wedged in between two buildings on the south-west side of the square. 'Pull me out; pull me out,' shrieked the imprisoned one, 'the buildings are closing on me.' He was hauled out without further ado, and then told an extraordinary story. He was in the act, he said', of passing through the- right-of- way, when the buildings came together and pinched him, and he could neither go forward nor get out again. Next morning he could not possi bly have' got his head where his body was the night before. We don't doubt the final reference to the head next morning.

BATHURST AND DAY-LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 4 August 1914

BATHURST AND DAY-LABOR. Bathurst Council tried hard to evade clay labor in its sewerage undertaking, even to the' extent of defying the Minister. But the odds were against the council. First of all no tenders were received. Then on the recalling of tenders the only one re ceived was 25 per cent, above the. Department's estimate. Alderman McPhillamy who, \ with two others, stood out for contract, said :— 'I do. not like accepting a tender above the estimate, but there is a devil you know and a devil you don't know. We have an experience of day labor with our water works and the well on the flat, and even in the Park. In the latter case, the cost was double what it should- have-been.1' -' '. ' ; ?? Bathurst is1 to'; be congratulated on its fight, but it was unlucky. It can, however, keep a strict eye on the work by the Department. Jt is just as likely to end 50 per cent, over the original estimate as 25 per cent. ? o ?

We take this opportunity of assuring our»customers and friends that we have no intention whatever of increasing our prices.

I think it behoves all branches of industrv to keep going as fully and progressively as ''? possible, in order to provide work for all who can be provided for. I think it is bad policy to stand still in times like these. The country is sound and prospects of a quick recovery are to be expected from a local standpoint. Buildings take much time to complete, and the probability is that time wasted in waiting to see what' happens will be regretted later on. -:

'AUSTRALIANS ALERT.' Harold W. Cavill (advertising Leaded Lights and Stained Glass), writes: — At this unprecedented period of Australian history, we, as patriotic subjects must be alert, but while desirous of defending our country from any attack (which is highly improbable), we must not overlook the fact that anything approaching panic at this period .will mean material loss to one and all. The Prime Minister, Mr. Cook, assures us that Australia is uncommonly well situated as regards food supplies. Why then should business be dislocated by the unjustified fear of the public? Our politicians have set us an example of loyalty, let us, then, as true Australians, be prepared to view things sensibly and, in the gracious words of our King, 'Be brave, he calm and fear Gocl.'
