Architects, Builders and Engineers THE LATE COLONEL VERNON. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

Architects, Builders and Engineers THE LATE COLONEL VERNON. Judge Backhouse presided at a preliminary meeting ot friends of the late Colonel Vernon. convened by our Editor,, and held in the Town Hall, on Friday afternoon. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss means of keeping alive the memory of the deceased gentleman. It was explained that in life the Colonel was associated with architecture, construction generally and the military, while as a private citizen he was held in the highest esteem. In each of those circles movements of per petuating his memory were mooted. It was, however, suggested to our Editor by. many mutual friends that he should consolidate the movement into one grand and laudable effort. Hence Friday's meeting. After the subject had been discussed, it was agreed to request the Lord Mayor to call a public meeting to forward the move ment. Mr. G. A. Taylor was appointed Hon. Secretary and Treasurer. Some of the suggestions as to the form the memorial; should ta...

STATE OR COMMONWEALTH? [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

? . ? « ? STATE OR COMMONWEALTH? A Sydney architect writes: — 'When the Builders Laborers' Federation applied for a Federal award, and it became a question whether the State or the Commonwealth award should stand, the then Minister for Labor (Mr. Beeby) promised that the Government Avould deter mine the point. This has not been done, and an example of the confusion liable tinder the present conditions was given in connection with a work of mine last week. By the builders laborers observ ing the Federal award, which provides for 44 hours a week, the bricklayers, committed to 48 hours a week, would have been 'inconvenienced.' The difficulty was, however, settled by the builders' laborers agreeing to observe the 4.8-hour standard, because, they argued, it prevailed at the commence ment of the contract.' (The reduction of hours from 4.S to 44 has been postponed for three months, vide 'an article by Presi dent G. P. Jones, of the Master Builders' Associa tion, in last week's issue. Howev...

NEWCASTLE BUILDERS. The Year's Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

? 9 ? NEWCASTLE BUILDERS. The Year's Progress. According to the annual report of the Newcastle Branch of the N.S.W. Master Builders' Association, the membership iioav stands at 123 — an increase of 23, made up of 13 Association and 10 Exchange members. The Building Trade. The report states : — The building trade generally has exceeded all previous years' operation. In the city large and commodious business and mercantile structures are j in progress, whilst in the suburbs residential proper- j ties are springing up on all .the new sub-division i areas. That has naturally made timber very scarce j and taxed the timber merchants to the utmost to keep pace with the times. Our suburban cottage, trade is one of our chief factors, the greater portion of these structures being pretty designs and attrac tive. There is not a shadow of a doubt that our city is fast coming to the front as a commercial port of importance where the imports and exports for the, north and north-west portions of th...

MAIN ROADS GRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

MAIN ROADS GRANTS. L;G. Engineer Grade, Macintyre Shire (N.S.W.) writes : '1 notice, in the 'Local Government journal' that the Hume Shire is much exercised in its mind over our alleged order of the Minister, that the main roads grant must be spent 'at certain specified locali ties on the roads. It is said that this is an unwar ranted and dangerous interference with the duties and responsibilities of shire engineers. 'There may be a division of opinion as to the wisdom or the necessity of the main-roads regula tions, but matters should not be made to appear worse than they really are. As a matter of fact there has been no interference with the main-roads expenditure in this shire. 'I was invited. to say where the work should be done, and in the official allocation these localities are simply copied in — so in other shires of which T have made enquiries. 'Mr. R. E. Jones (Chief Local Government Engi neer) has a wide knowledge of the State roads, but would not, I am sure, claim that d...

CORPORATE BODIES AND BORROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

CORPORATE BODIES AND BORROWING. J reasurer Cann has announced his intention of intro ducing a scheme empowering corporate bodies to raise, loans. Under the new order of things such bodies as the Water and Sewerage Board, the Harbor Trust, and the Railway Department, will be in the position of judiciously replenishing their coffers without waiting on an im pecunious Government 'to raise the wind,' or Uncle Lolien to come good. Last year the wind was very wayward, and Cohen became suddenly interested in a tall building or cloud effects when a N.S.W. politician hove in sight. The result was that the quasigovern mental bodies had to play the part of old Mother Hub bard's dog. Treasurer Cann is to remedy this. There are, however, other aspects which will be discussed next week.

"PUTTING IT SQUARELY." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

'PUTTING IT SQUARELY.' City Engineer Adams, of Newcastle (N.S.W.), in making an application for increased salary, put the' facts veiy squarely. He pointed out that it was twelve months since he accepted office, and a more strenuous year's work he had never put through in all his life. Me had no sooner taken up duties than he found himself confronted with the fact that the office of the city engineer was also saddled with the duties of city architect and build ing surveyor, no mention of which was even hinted at, either in the advertisement inviting applications for the position, or the conditions governing the appointment, so that he had been performing these duties, at the lowest estimate worth £.1.50 a year, i'or the past twelve months gratuitously, and the new building ordinance imposed further responsi bilities in this respect. The annual expenditure under his office was in the neighborhood. of £30,000. In addition to this he had the care, maintenance, and repair of muni cipal h...

N.S.W. LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

N.S.W. LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS. It is significant, so far as the forthcoming N.S.W. local government elections are concerned, that all pretence as to the non-introduction of the political element has been dropped. liven the Sydney morning press, which has in the past excised all mention of anything like a contest on political lines, has thrown aside the bluff on this occasion. It is asking, almost beseeching, the Liberals not 'to split the vote. Shortly we may expect to hear of Liberal and Labor leagues being established in all shires and municipalities and all the prejudices and bitter ness of a political campaign, which it is desirable to keep out, enacted. In the past the vigor, purity and ? efficiency ofv local government are supposed to have rested on the absence of the political taint, and all its accom panying plotting and general malpractice. That time, however, appears to be rapidly passing. The ascendancy of Labor in the political arena means only one thing, and that is...

SIR ALLEN TAYLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 27 January 1914

SIR ALLEN TAYLOR. The 'S.M. Herald' 'confesses this morning to being in a ?.quandary as to whether Sir Allen Taylor or Mr. Spencer Brunton would make the more fitting city alder man. The task of selection is committed by .the 'usually expressive morning journal .to the good sense of rate payers. Of course, all these questions are, but as to the man likely to best represent the interests of the city and its ratepayers, avc Have no hesitation in plumping for Sir Allen Taylor. He has proved himself possessed of that ability and progressiveness that are essential at this period of Sydney's development. In short, Sir Allen Taylor h:is been tried and found successful, while the election of Mr. Spencer Brunton would be largely in the measure of an experiment. And this is no time for experiments. '-^
