Referring to yours of Gth August, we certainly do nbt. ^anticipate complete dislocation of business so far as the -building trade is concerned.

A FINANCIAL SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 10 August 1914

A FINANCIAL SUGGESTION. Alkemade Bros., Melbourne (advertising Alkemade Hydraulic Ground Lime), make a financial suggestion: — The question that enters our mind is: 'Is there any justification that our Building Trade should stop because England is at war, or that money will become scarce?' , ' We say noi Money is the means wherebv we trade and its value is its purchasing power, and we, in Aus tralia, have notes and coins of our own. These notes and coins are recognised over the world and no doubt they 'will be required for war purposes, so by all means im prison the lot to date. But to enable us to carry on such of our lbcal industries and building trade that is possible on our own raw material, surely arrangements could be liiuuc wun me uovernnienr to issue a special note or coin for the purpose of payment of materials and wages while the war is going on, thereby keeping men in work and in good spirits.

'ADVANCE AUSTRALIA.' ? Chas. Carter, Melbourne (advertising 'Arabic' Cool Roofing Compo), points to the watchword: — ._ Here in this great isle of the Antipodes let us, as the .J.greatest of youthful nations, avoid deed or word tending 1 to aid the creation of unnecessary scares during this severe crisis in the world's history.

"TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

1 'TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK.' In the course of some' reference to the generous attitude which ; it was assumed, on an authoritative ' statement, master' builders intended!, taking toward their -employees, the old biblical quotation, ''turning the other cheek,' was employed. President '.Williamson, of the Association, now writes that 'at no time will master builders turn their' cheek, or- an y other part, for anyone to smite.' They never invite that form of. action, and if it does come they are, generally prepared to meet it. ? The President has given the venerable quotation its literal interpretation, whereas we intended it to be accepted colloquially. This is .borne but by the context which applauds the generous spirit of'' master- builders, despite the uncompromising attitude of the unions in the past. It is fair to assume that less advanced biblicists than the President, read it that w.ay. ...

ADVERTISING KOGARAH. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

ADVERTISING KOGARAH. The neatly gotten lip brochure embodying a resume of Kogarah's (N.S.W.) municipal activity during 1913, should be distributed broadcast: It constitutes a splendid advertisement for the district, giving illustrations and facts indicating progress that would be certain to attract investors. It would even be a good business move for local real estate- to adopt this suggestion; but the council should certainly see that the fine opportunities pre sented by Kogarah are known to outsiders.

♦ ? f MONUMENTAL MASONS. ' 1 he decision of the N.S.W. Master Monumental Masons' Association to seek an amendment of the Act prohibitive of Sunday trading, cast a sidelight on the keenness of competition these days. The Association's action was .inspired by- the. practice in vogue of soliciting orders from people visiting the cemeteries on Sundays. The remedy can be applied by including 'yards' under the Early Closing Act, and action on the part of the responsible. Minister is confidently anticipated.
