Contracts and Day Labor. PERCENTAGE SYSTEM. APPLYING IT TO RAILWAY WORKS. ?? '' ?' '' ; i The scheme Which the - Minister for Works has been formulating, for carrying out Government works by day labor, and at the same time pre serving the contract system is about to be tested on certain railway works. The proposal is that the contrac tor should be paid on a percentage basis, according to the ratio which the actual cost of the work when completed bears to the departmental estimate. Referring to this innovatiou, Mr. Griffith said he-had decided, with the approval of the Cabinet, to make a test of the system. ' It is not,' he remarked, ' an abandonment of the day labor sys tem at all. It is only the substitu I tion of an experienced contractor on ! a percentage', as supervisor of the job, tor a departmental officer on a | fixed salary. It is a method that has worked extremely well in other I countries, and I hope it will work S satisfactorily here.' j The Minister explained that the co...

'A mischievous lad of Piketown, threw a stone and hit Mrs. Pike in the alley last Tuesday.' 'Coe Doe climbed on the roof of his house looking for a leak and fell striking himself on the back porch.'
