Railway Passengers and Cattle Trucks. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
lRailway Passengers and Cattle Trucks. Railway passengers travelling on the near-suburban holiday lines com plain bitterly that; after having :piid first class fares, they were invited to step into cattle trucks, with all the discomforts, plus the cattle stink. Some refused to use their tickets, and indignantly demanded their, dpurchase. at face value from` the ticket sellers. Others submitted to the- inposition;'. But those who did not use their tickets have been writing indignant -letteis in "the voices of the morning;" aver ring that, as the IRailway aDDalrtmenit has travellers fined for riding- on- sec- ond class tickets in first class carriages, then it would bi a:fair propositioin that the department should be:prose cated and fined for imposnig upon first class passengers by -requiring: them to ridlo in third class rolling stock.

Motor Road Hogs. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
Motor Road lHos. Tie following, from the "Footscray [Independent," has, perlhaps, as much application to Esseldon's main road Imotor conditions as to those prevailing in the suburb of our contemporary: "'fhe regulation of lmtor cars is a matter, whiclh will have to be taken into earniest consideration by the local coincil. A railway locomotive is crib hod, cabined, and confined iwithii fences, but the driver of a motor car, oftein flying at the pace of a railwiay train, can skip along our thoroughfares secure in the knowledge that there is nothing to hold him. Ballarat and (tGelong roads, as main thoroughfares to importanLt Olltlres, are much use by the car men, and a few of them not particular as to speed have been ex tremely careless as to the rights of p&lt;leostrians.

ROOFING-IN PLAYING FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
ROOFNG-IN PLAYING FIELDS. To protect baseball and other ath letic fhelds from rain and avoid post ponement of games on, account of 'wet grounds," two St. Louis (U.S.A.) inventors have devised and patented a cover that may be spread over the field when it is not in use. The cover is arranged in two forms to be used with or without a grandstand. , In one form cables are run out from drums under tne eaves of the grind stand and -anncored beyond the ' t side baseline; a canvas or tarpaulin cover attached to hangers sliding on the cables, making a sloping roof over the field. In the other sorm the cover is supported by a steel mast and swinging boom placed near the field. When the boom is swung out over the field a tent in the form of a pyramid or cone is let down and anchored with its edges outside the baselines. In either form the cover can be quickly .spread over the field or cleared away by electric power.
SAFETY OF STEEL CARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
--Qý}- SAFETY OF STEEL CARS. In the event of a heavy collision, wooden railway cars fail, either by going entirely to pieces or by one of the massive and otrong underfranles mounting upon anotier, and shearing the superstructure of the lower car entirely from its base. Wooden con struction has the disadvantage that, although its strength to resist tie first shock is great, once it has given way it offers but little progressive re sistance to the crushing and rending energy of the collision; whereas the tough metal of which steel cars are built, nuot only offers a much greater roesitance to tly first shock, but, after the car or cars have begun to give way. the material still puts up a stub born fight to retain
