THE PENALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

THE PENALTY. Fines exceeding £2000 in the aggregate were recently 'inflicted1 on the N.S.W. miners who struck over the working of the afternoon shift. Public opinion was in favor of the miners' claim. Under present conditions they are practically robbed of home life so essential in the uplifting of mankind. But when the men struck they forfeited public sym pathy and paid the penalty of the law into the bargain.

The Institute, seeks to reduce the number of administra tive bodies to which it has to go in connection with these regulations, and its special committees expect to be able to present a report on the subject at the next meeting. ' . The Institute also recently wrote to the Minister of Labor asking whether th.e Scaffolding Bill intro duced into the Legislative Assembly this session was identical with the measure considered and approved by the committee appointed by the Government last year, or the bill as originally intro duced?' A reply from the Chief, Inspector of Fac tories stated that the bill now before the.

THE OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

THE OUTLOOK. War is in progress. Peace lies weeping on the doorstep of Civilisation. But Faith and Hope are not yet dead. The cause of righteous humanity must ulti mately prevail; and speedily, we trust. We Britons, from the standpoint of national security,' are safe as ' the ' Rock ' of Gibraltar, and as mighty, stubborn and impregnable to the challenge of the enemy, directed from 'whatever quarter and in whatever manner. For the Empire stands united. But despite our favorable, position from , that standpoint, and the certainty of ulti mate triumph, we stand to suffer as an ' Empire. .War, justified or unjustified, judged strictly from the standpoint, of civilisation and Christian principles, is a revival of the barbaric practice of man's ? inhumanity to man which we thought an enlightened age had banned with the chair of torture and sundry other forms of. inquisition. Sacrifices will have to be made, priva tions will have to be endured in propor- ? tion to the havoc wrought. The f...

"BUILDING" FOR AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

? w ? 'BUILDING' FOR AUGUST. 'Building' for August is now ready with a new cover, artistic, yet simple, typifying the 'anti-tradi- tion' spirit of the magazine in its attitude toward Architecture and constructional progress in general. Marion Mahony Griffin was responsible for the design. The contents are 'plain-English' when technical, and thus provide popular, as well as instructive reading. Louis H. Sullivan, 'anti-traditionist,' and a member of the International jury in connec tion witn tne worm s competition tor tne design ot Canberra's Buildings, asks: 'What is Architecture?' and supplies the first of a series of articles in answer. .' George A. Taylor (Editor), on tour, has ' .a breezy budget of 'board-ship impressions and what he liked — and didn't like — about Auckland (N.Z.). Marion Mahony Griffin writes further on 'Demo- cratic Architecture' ; likewise R. T. Baker, F.L.S., on 'The Cabinet Timbers of Australia.' No one ? in any way associated with Construction — to use a c...

VICTORIAN MASTER BUILDERS. Their New President. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

VICTORIAN MASTER BUILDERS. Their New President. Our Melbourne correspondent writes : — In following to the presidency of the. Master Builders' Association two such men as Messrs. J. W. Swanson (1911-12 and 1912-13) and Clements Langford (1933-U), Mr. W. H. Cooper has an ex cellent lead to big things; and in selecting Mr. Cooper the Master Builders have found the man avIio will do them. Coming from a family of builders, his whole life has been connected with construction. When in association with his father (Mr. W. K. Cooper) and brother (Mr. W. h.. Cooper), it was well known that in addition to his constructional ability he was a master of design. In debate his thoughtful utterances have always made his opinions valuable, making him a much sought man for wages boards, conferences and deputations. He is one whose tact and dignified bearing should do much for the prestige and influ ence of the Association.

"STEADY AND PLUCKY BUSINESS ACTIVITY." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 August 1914

'STEADY AND PLUCKY BUSINESS ACTIVITY.' Architects Copeman and Lemont write;. — Re tjie effect of war' on building operations in our State. Up to the present our, business lias 'not suffered. All honor to those of the architectural and building fraternity who have offered themselves for active service. Those that remain at home can best serve the interest of the Empire by avoiding .commercial .and business scare. Granted that prices of some of our building material may advance, at the worst it will only affect a certain nronortion of the cost of a buildiner. Some Iaree specu lative building .schemes will no doubt be abandoned for a time. The .wonderful resources, of our State are surely too great' to justify a lack of pluck and, viewed from a calm business standpoint, there must be sufficient neces sary building to keep' us all' 'employed. Even at the risk of slight possible losses on the part of both builders and investors, it is surely worth such possible risk rather than resorting...

COST OF ARBITRATION. WHAT WORKERS HAVE LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 24 August 1914

COST OF ARBITRATION. WHAT WORKERS HAVE LOST. Toward the end of the conciliation era the demand of organised labor for arbitra- , tion became almost as continuous and in sistent as the cry of the child for the new . toy. We would have no industrial peace, ' we were told, until the legitimate rights of the workers were acknowledged under a system of arbitration. Practically in -the spirit of the parent who -gives -the child the cried-for toy, a N.S.W. Liberal Government introduced arbitration. That the system would be costly was patent from the outset. But peace at all costs was the ruling spirit of the time. And, indeed, to this day arbi tration would have been a good legisla tive investment on the State's behalf had peace resulted. But the system has, apparently, conduced more to discord. At any rate, we have not had a decent spell of peace since the workers were granted their new rattle. One expectation, however, has been ful filled — that as regards cost. Some eloquent — too eloqu...

INCREASING PRICES. Straight Talk by Master Builders. "Deal with Them Later On." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 24 August 1914

- ? INCREASING PRICES. Straight Talk by Master Builders. 'Deal with Them Later On.' At the last meeting of the Master Builders' Association, the question of increased prices in certain building materiajs was discussed. The President, who had conducted a personal investiga tion, stated that in some cases increases had been made with the declaration of war. Certain mer chants seemed to have been in a hurry to put increases on. It was a fine thing for the Chamber of Commerce to have met and nassed a resolution that prices should not lie raised to allow of industry being kept going. But it was robbed of some of its effect when certain members went straight away and defeated that object. In some instances increases had been made to the extent of 20 per cent. The Timber Merchants had set a good example. It had not been followed in every instance. The Association had now to say what should be done.. The President concluded with the remark that some who had raised prices appeared to have be...
