AUSTRALIA'S WARSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 24 August 1914

AUSTRALIA'S WARSHIPS. The present spectacle of warlike preparation in Sydney Harbor supplies a moral for the serious reflection of militant unionism. No more emphatic example of the necessity for being ready has ever occurred in our history. .Certainly with the material at our disposal we are well advanced from the defence standpoint. But with less industrial trouble at the Commonwealth shipbuilding yards and less delay as a result we would have been in an even more satisfactory position. Two vessels are now in course of construction far behind their contract time. What an asset they would be in a completed state just at present! In fighting our own petty industrial wars we have been apt to forget the enemy. The terrible possi bilities of that nationally suicidal line of action have never been more strikingly suggested than at this perilous moment when our Empire is at war. : ?. .' ?: ? — — ; ? ♦ — ? ? — ' ??'

THE TEESDALE-SMITH CONTRACT. Convincing Facts and Figures. What the Public Has Gained. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

THE TEESDALE-SMITH CONTRACT. Convincing Facts and Figures. What the Public Has Gained. Ail tlie Labor Party has so far done, and probably ever will do, regarding the Teesdalc-Smith contract, is. to ..say it was 'wrong.' Of course, figures have been quoted and allegations made- until the day-labor champions themselves'' probably don't know where they arc, or what they are talking about, more than that they are talking anil the subject relates to the Tcesdale-Smith contract. But the only real argument is summed up in the one word, ''wrong.' Now was the Government 'wrong' in letting the contract. Air. \V. H. Kelly, Assistant Minister for Homif Affairs, in. the course of an interview, said: — ?'The real question is whether this contract was good business or bad 'business from the Commonwealth .point, of view. The answer is to be found not only in the fact that the contractor was getting less from the Common wealth contract, and having to pay much higher wages in connection with it. than...

Also President of the N.S.W. Chamber of Manufactures, and Senate Candidate. We never have been sticklers for any political party in particular, believing that individuals more than parties enrich legislatures. Hence we con sider that whichever way the elections go from the purely party standpoint, H. E. Pratten should be among the elected. Viewed from the higher level of individual capacity and personal force, he would be a worthy representative. Associated with a party in the majority or the minority he would be a mighty acquisition to the National Parliament. On those grounds we ask our readers, adherents as they are of both parties, to take the higher view and register a vote for H. E. Pratten and Australia. [George A. Taylor (Editor) and W. V. A. O'Carroll, ,17 Grosvenor Street, Sydney.] H. E. PRATTEN, BIG AUSTRALIAN.

EXPENSIVE RAILWAY BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

EXPENSIVE RAILWAY BUILDING. The country press is taking up the cudgels against day-labor. This from the Richmond River 'Examiner': — According to figures given officially the other evening in the Assembly, the South GraftonGlen reagh section of the North Coast railway has already been responsible for an expenditure of public money to the extent of £260,00.0 odd. This is upwards of £110,000 in excess of the outlay had a tender been an,c(;icu iui tnc CACCiiuuii ui me wuik. j. u liic lay mind the cost is enormous, and requires a lot of ex planation as to why the unnecessary excess of day labor over contract system was warranted. The line passes through comparatively easy coun ?try, with no engineering difficulties, no heavy cuttings, not a single tunnel, yet swallows a mileage rate of something like £1.0,000, or double what the Grafton-Casino line cost through identically the same class of country. If the other sections have absorbed public money to a like extent, then the North Coast ...

DUTY ON MARBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

DUTY ON MARBLE. Giving evidence before the Inter-State Commis sion, last week, Mr. Walter George Crane, of G. E. Crane and Sons, Ltd., marble manufacturers, applied for a reduction or abolition of duty on white marble. He said that at present white marble of sufficiently good quality could not be obtained here. His firm had given local white marble a trial, but found it unsatisfactory. Mr. Peter H. Miller, departmental manager of Holdsworth, Macpherson, Ltd., confirmed ' the evidence of the previous witness. Mr. William Odling, of Anselm/Odling, and Sons, quarry owners and marble manufacturers, supported the application. There was no white marble in New South' -Wales that could be used for monumental work of a highly finished character. The more finish one tried to put upon ' New South Wales white marble, the more dirty it looked. It lost its white appearance as soon as exposed to the weather. He asked for the removal of the duty of .15 per cent, on marble slabs. Mr. William Rooke, ...

GERMANS IN BUSINESS. May They Make Contracts? [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

? v ? ' . GERMANS IN BUSINESS. May They Make Contracts? A letter was forwarded to the Federal Attorney General by Premier Holman, raising the questions whether German or Austrian subjects residing in Australia are entitled, without licence from the King, to enter into contracts in the Commonwealth, and whether they may sue, and be sued, on such contracts in Australian courts during the war. Referring to this matter last night, Sir William numerous and difficult questions that arose as to the conditions in which intercourse with an enemy's ? country might be maintained under licence from the King. The question was limited to the carrying on of their business by alien -enemies in Australia. The contract involved in that question was not one of a national character as much as it was one of com mercial domicile. It was clear that alien enemies, who after the beginning of the war, were expressly permitted to continue in Australia were under the King's protection as long as they demeaned ...

INDUSTRIAL REGULATION OF WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

INDUSTRIAL REGULATION OF WAGES. Mr. G. S. Beebyj Ex-Minister for Labor in N.S.W., and one of the sincere politicians of the times, read a notable paper before the Science Con gress, on 'Industrial Regulation of Wages.' We characterise it as 'notable' not agreeing with all he, said, but recognising, nevertheless, the splendid truth of passages like the following: — Australia's greatest period of material develop ment ana progress naa syncnronisea wun us industrial experiments. Employers as a class had up to the present generally been able to adjust increased labor cost without reducing profits. But they were approaching the break ing-point. The elaborate codes which the Arbi tration Courts substituted for ordinary contracts of employment, and the persistent increases in minimum wages, would shortly begin to en croach on profits. When this happened, and shrinkage of enterprise followed, a general recon sideration of the whole scheme of industrial regu lation was inevitable. Before lon...
