MERRIWA MOVING [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

MERRIWA MOVING. If, by some happy circumstance, many N.S.W. councils could be obliterated as at. present consti tuted, and others of the calibre of Merriwa spring up in their place, what a vast improvement would be effected in local government. Merriwa has only a revenue of £500, but it has a permanent qualified engineer (L.G. Engineer W. G. Finn), and pays him £450 per annum. He started 22 months ago at £400, but he has made good for Merriwa, and the councillors, being administrators in the best sense of the word, have done the fair thing. We have always said that it is such councils that should receive the favorable consideration of the Minister in regard to grants, because the proof is there that they will be properly applied. ? ^

WHAT MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

WHAT MATTERS. A great deal* of the National Parlia ment's time was recently taken up dis cussing whether the Government had engaged a non-unionist painter in prefer ence to a unionist. Nobody asked whether he was the best man for the job. That should have been all that really mattered. [George A. Taylor (Editor) and W. V. A. O'Carroll, 17 Grosvenor Street', Sydney.]

DIRTY SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

DIRTY SYDNEY. 'The City Council is considering a proposal for the putting air increased. amount of the city rubbish and garbage out to sea. The only comment that can be- made upon this is that it is exactly what the citizens of Sydney have learnt to expect of the City Council. It is this sort of thing that makes the average citizen pray for the day when all musti ness and cobwebs of Sydney's present constitution will be sent out beyond the Heads along with its punts and its garbage, and sunk there finally, never to return.'— 'S.M. Herald.'

CHEER-UP REFLECTIONS.—I. "The War Type." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

CHEER-UP REFLECTIONS.— I. 'The War Type.' The revolutionary production of a new situation, new set of circumstances, new outlook — call it what you will — has this remarkable effect: It creates with equally stunning suddenness a new human type, and always in the pessimistic mould.'- ? ' If a drought be the national trouble, the type is dry and dusty-looking, and talks only of sun-baked plains,' dying sheep, and a bleached panorama. . If it be a wave of wowserism, the type lias' baggy trous ers and Pharisaical whiskers. It is the least harmful of all types produced by abnormal conditions, and most of us good-naturedly accept its pessimism as to the Hereafter with unqualified optimism. But if a war disturb our equanimity, as at present, we are inflicted with a type which is something of a Uriah Heep-Scrooge protoplasm. It is the most dangerous of all, because its very presence is infectious. Ordinarily sane men listen to its arguments and oftentimes accept them in preference to the be...

Architects, Builders and Engineers. PRACTICAL PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

Architects, Builders and Engineers. PRACTICAL PATRIOTISM. Someone said recently that persons puzzled as to pro cedure at this period could do no better than practise the simple precepts of patriotism. The phrase, as it stands, is apt to be misleading. What is patriotism? Not patriotism in the abstract — for it is useless; but patriotism of the practical kind. It is not solely flag llapping, contributions to the citizens' war chest, knitted socks, or even twenty National Anthems before retiring with a dash of Marseillaise. Certainly all are the warp and our support of the part of the Empire in which we live — .Australia in our case — as well as of the Empire as a whole. There are, in fact, two sides to patriotism; and they may be described in the simple terms of 'outward' and 'inward.' For instance, when an Australian employer gives a donation to the War Fund, he practises 'outward' patriotism. When he dispenses with a third of his staff, ties up his capital, or unnecessarily raises ...

RAISING PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

RAISING PRICES. First the timber merchants agreed not to raise their p'rices, and now the slaters have followed with a similar declaration to hold good while present stocks last. The master builders are warmly appreciative of this attitude-, which is, after all. only in keeping with common-sense judgment, apart from any patriotic impulse, at this time. If everybody endeavored to exploit the market building would necessarily cease. The investor feels that lie is now paying quite enough for his construction. Anyhow, in these times, he certainly is unlikely to pay more, and those who think they can force him into doing it are simply cutting their own throats. Master builders complain, and in some instances bitterly, of the manner in which prices have been unjustifiably raised in certain quarters. The President of the Associa tion has been on a mission of personal interviews with some good effect. But since the Chamber of Commerce passed resolutions against the raising of prices, the As...

THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS AND THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS AND THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK. The rival parties in Australian politics carry their opposition to the degree of dis proving each other's existence in anything that really matters, and in a great many things that don't matter. The mere formal declaration on the nii4 r\r Ann flinf nn r\}\ 1 o/»4- ic I'\ln r*\r en fn /*OC to extract from the other a charge of color blindness and a soul-staking challenge that the thing is unmistakably white. But upon one subject, at. least, there is unanimity, because there really is no disputing the fact. Both Prime Minister Cook and Labor-Leader Fisher agreed in their opening speeches that Australia was at the zenith of her pros perity. Of. course, both claimed that its continuance was dependent upon the return of their particular party. But this contingency can well afford to be set aside in the common agreement that, after each side has done its best — and its worst — prosperity remained with us. Even the war cannot impoverish us to...

THE ATTITUDE OF THE N.S.W. GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

THE ATTITUDE OF THE N.S.W. GOVERNMENT. At the outbreak of hostilities the N.S.W. Government said things and threatened to do things that were impres sively rational and national. As a result it gained many new friends, including men whose personal and business interests in normal times made them sternly anti-Labor. But the early confidence and support are being gradually forfeited by the Government's failure to act up to its inferred policy. For instance, it is doing a big back down as regards the industrial aspect of things — really the pivotal factor in the preservation of trade and industry in as satisfactory a state as can be expected. The sug gestion at the outset was that the operation of the awards should be rescinded for a time, that employers should be encouraged to keep their staffs together by distributing less money among a greater number. * But the Government won't do that. Some say that it can't — the unions won't let it. Well, if it is so supine as to place the intere...

A DRAINAGE PUMP. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

A DRAINAGE PUMP. A drainage pump taking up liquids carrying con siderable masses of hard and fibrous solids is the ?mechanical novelty of the Hon. R. C. Parsons. It is of the centrifugal type, with a conical fan or im peller, and as the liquid is admitted to the outer side of this fan, the blades, rotating against a kniie in the casing, act like shears to cut up any solid |Jii.'iMuj; iiuu me bjm ai uiiuuiijci icauiny iu uic uuuci. Any material not sufficiently reduced at the first revolution is recut until the pieces are fine enough to pass out. In the severe English- tests,, with Sin. suction and delivery pipes, the pump worked effectively when fibrous substances clogged up a coarse sieve like flannel in a quarter of a minute, and greasy cotton waste, pieces of sacking and cloth ing, paper,' hemp ropes, bricks, and pieces of wood were readily pumped — even a suit of overalls, a dead rabbit, and the handle of an engineer's hammer being cut into small pieces without causing any inter...

ECONOMY OF ROAD ENGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 31 August 1914

ECONOMY OF ROAD ENGINES. Says the Armidale 'Express' : — The Engineer for ? Ciost\\'5'ck Shire (Mr. W. J. Thompson) submitted , some remarkable figures at Wednesday's meeting of his council, anent the economy of engine work on roads. He said that after deducting every expense, even in moving* camp and the payment of extra wages, the council gained 10/- per chain over the ordinary dray work, and this with rolling complete. The dray work could not be rolled. The roads were further immeasurably superior when made by machinery.'.. Mr. Thompson estimated the general saving to the council at 130/- a day, and even up to £:5 a day 'on long jobs. The longer the job the more saved. . The road plant had more than- justi- fied its existence. . _ — . — . ? ♦ ?
