MOTORS, TAR, AND GOOD ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

? v ? MOTORS, TAR, AND GOOD ROADS. Councillor Russell, of Hawthorn (V.), returned from Britain brimming over with praise for the roads there. The}7 are nearly all tar-paved, lie said, and in 25 years he thinks that an untarred road will be as rare as a marble pavement. : Are the motors taxed for the upkeep, he was asked . 'Not exactly,' he explained. 'There is a petrol tax imposed by the Government which returns a large sum. This is handed over to the Road Boards for expenditure on the roads. And that re minds me: the rates in England are terrific — from 9s to 12s at different places. This is on the annual value. I have often been asked what our rates in Australia are, and when I have replied 2s in the £ as a rule, the general retort is 'Do you expect good roads for that?' This is not the only tax, ..this 9s to 12s; there is the household tax on top of that, and the income tax on top of that. But Britain has many wealthy, and the taxes -are paid seem ingly without much effort.' ? ▲ ...

FIRE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

FIRE PROTECTION. The danger of fire has always been a nightmare; among the citizens', of a place of. any : proportion, and particularly its business section. ' No insurance policy can completely recoup the victim of a disast rous fire. The business loss is not provided for, nor is the time lost in starting- again repaid !___ 'J^hejausir . ness men, hoyyever, have it in their owTi' hands fo '* minimise the^re risks, firstly, by insisting on fire proof construction, and, secondl\r, by installing modern alarm systems, which give warning at the instant of the' outbreak. No building is absolutely fire-proof. It is only Tire-proof in the comparative sense. The building of .steel must have fire alarms installed just the same as any ordinary building. There have been some instances of the averting of serious outbreaks by the timely warning of the fire alarm in Sydney more than any other State. It is not too much to affirm that the installation of a satisfactory means of warning should be ma...

REAL ESTATE Melbourne's Prosperous Outlook A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW The Year's Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

REAL ESTATE Melbourne's Prosperous Outlook A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW The Year's Progress. Melbourne was never more solid than it is to-day. The year began in an atmosphere of tight money and loose prophecies of slump, but it is ending in loose coin a-plenty jingling in the people's pockets, and a tight rein on free holds in city and suburbs. Land values for large suburban paddocks have risen in the ratio of £50 to £70 and £S0 an. acre, but so many subdivisions have taken place that buyers have been able to pick and choose and so keep prices down to a; reasonable minimum. Two or three thousand blocks have been sold to speculators and home builders this spring, and through the year five or six thousand houses have been built, so it is apparent that while the land and build ing market is buoyant, there is -no boom. Immigrants have declined in number in the past few months, but the grain sea son is good, and the flow of new blood will be strengthened again early in the. year.. The type of ...
