PROGRESS IN THE MILLING TRADE. The New Mill at Canowindra. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
PROGRESS IN THE MILLING TRAD*;. The New Mill at Canowindra. Progress is undoubtedly the watch - word of this State at the present time and our milling- trade in common, Avitli most other industries, continues to move forward. Out West another step forward has been taken by the opening of the Great Western Mill ing Company's new mill at Canowin dra, on April 10, in the presence of a large gathering of .farmers and towns people, including Mr. Johnson, M.H.R., the Federal representative for Lang.

Worboys, who, in reminis cent mood, traced the early incidents which led up to the formation of the company, which was started in 1882, at Spring-grove-now Millthorye. "In the years 18G2 and 3," said Mr. Worboys, "a number of selectors hav ing taken up land in the district, and wheat being the chief crop, the diffi culties of getting it harvested and marketed soon presentied th...

Street Alignments. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Street Alignments. The question of the alignment of streets in an area is very important, and in parts that are closely popula ted, indeed necessary. The cost is not great compared with the advantages to be gained. At present, in scores of streets it is impossible for coun cils' officials to give the proper align ment, and consequently a want of uniformity exists, both as regards the building line, and what is known as the kerb. The alignment settles all this, and these lines are easily identified. We notice that Murwil lumbah Shire Council has just deci ded to have certain streets aligned. The Lands Department has informed the council that it would be necessary to deposit an amount equal to 3s 6d per chain of the proposed alignment, in all, about 121 chains; the council's liability being £21 3s 6d. The Mayor was instructed to make the formal application for same, and forward the amount of its share of the cost.
Roadmaking Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
. Roadmaking Machinery. The visit to the city of a number of shire engineers to attend their an nual conference, has been the means of several good orders being placed with merchants of the city for road making plant. Amongst others, Mr. B. A. Heffernan, engineer of Blaxland Shire, had an order from his council. He speaks very strongly in favour of the modern methods. He was one of the first to introduce the road grader to New South Wales. His experience, while engineer of shires of New Zea land, convinced him that it was wise economy to perform the work of roadmaking by machinery, instead of the old methods of pick and shovel, and since his arrival in this State some three years ago, many councils have copied his example.
Road Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Road Machinery. The engineer for Gundurimba Shire strongly advocated the purchasing of a suitable roadmaking plant for the shire. On the score of economy the question was a pressing one. The cost was estimated to be £1757, and it would do work in twelve months at a cost of £3565, which would other wise cost £7367. His figures were based on actual working experience. Cr. MacPherson, in supporting a mo tion to refer the matter to a com mittee for consideration and report, said the figures read like a fairy tale, and it was a wonder that if such savings could be effected by the plant that it had not been purchased be fore.

Culverts. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Culverts. The Engineer of Byron Shire has made a good suggestion to his coun cil. He says that wherever possible, monier or earthenware pipes should be used to replace the bad culverts in the shire. Wooden culverts are always objectionable, and should only be constructed in isolated cases. A pipe culvert, if well covered, is al most everlasting.
Building Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Building Regulations. Regarding tlie building regulations which so many councils have adop ted, in order, among other things to preserve the health of the inmates, and uniformity of construction, coun cils sometimes delay giving their con sent to the plans and specifications submitted, which causes much incon venience. At last meeting of Auburn Council, a letter was read from a firm of solicitors, in reply to a let ter from the council, asking them to state on what section of the Ordi nances they relied to compel the coun cil's consideration of the plan of building proposed to be erected by Mr. H. King. The solicitors stated that Mr. King relied upon tlie regu lations re the erection of buildings adopted by the council on 28tli June, 1D0D.

There being an obligation by the person proposing to erect a building to submit plans, t...

Defying a Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
Defying a Council. ' The Mudgee Council recently re solved that their labourers should clear a certain natiu*al watercourse running through the properties of two persons. The Act-Sec. 7G-gives councils full power to do this. Evi dently the Mayor anticipated trouble, so he, in company with the town clerk, the works committee, and the council's labourers, visited the site, but, as the husband was away, and at the request of his wife, nothing was then done. In the afternoon of the same day the mayor and.party re-appeared on the scene, but the husband was still away. As it was necessary to have the work expedi ted, the Mayor ordered it to be pro ceeded with some distance away. They started clearing the drain lead ing up to the premises in question, but the next day, when the labour ers reached the boundary of the said property, they found a heap of stones in the drain, which reached up to the bottom of the panel of the two railed fence. This heap prevented the water from taking its natu...

Noxious Weeds Conference. A conference "was held last week at Glen Innes, to consider the question of joint action being taken for the destruction of noxious weeds. The conference was to consist of repre sentatives of the P.P. Board, Severn Shire, and Glen limes Municipal Council. The P.P. Board was not represented, and after discussing the question, those present carried the following motion:-"That a letter l)e written to the P.P. Board sug gesting that the shire council and municipal council should keep all roads and any reserves vested in tliem, free from noxious weeds., and that the P.P. Board keep all stock routes and private lands clean."
