WOLLONGONG IN 1913. Wanted—A Qualified Engineer. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 16 February 1914

WOLLONGONG IN 1913. Wanted- — A Qualified Engineer. Mayor Dean, of Wollongong (N:S.W\), does not disguise the fact of his satisfaction at what the' council accomplished in .1 \W,). And to some extent he is justified. Wollohgongites — if they don't, mind that funny cognomen — could be lots worse off than the present council has left them. Incidentally they could be much better off. The Mayor, and the council — to pay them the compliment — will no; doubt be interested to know how. Simply by em ploying a permanent qualified engineer. 1 lie Mayor confesses in his report that considera able criticism' has been levelled at the -condition of! the roads and the streets, and that the' district has; not a sewerage system. . \ The Mayor also says: 'In each of the past three; years a sum in excess of that previously spent has been expended under this head, averaging about, £2100 per, annum, this being disbursed under 1 exactly the same system as has been in vogue here for many years past, excep...

"A STORY OF USELESS REGRET." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 16 February 1914

'A STORY OF USELESS REGRET.' Some time ago we published an article entitled : 'A Story, of Useless Regret.' It set out the policy of councils in sweating a capable officer until he resigned to take up a more remunerative position. Then the municipal sweaters became suddenly alive to the injustice, and offered him compliments 'galore and extra- 'salary'1 to 'stay. . -This was 'tli'e^tory of useless, regret.' ... . . We have since had occasion, in many instances, of exposing cases of this kind. The latest is the case of Shire-Clerk P. J. Carew, of Warringah (N.S.W.). We do not know 'the' extent of his salary,' and consequently do not infer that he was sweated. But it is significant to note that when - he gave notice to take up a better paying job, the council offered him a mighty rise of £'.1.15 a year to remain. They paid him compliments too. But it was 'a story of useless regret.' Carew cleared. Now if the clerk were Avorth that much to the ratepayers, why hadn't the council the com...

DAY LABOR IN N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 16 February 1914

DAY LABOR IN N.S.W. Among master builders there is no more severe critic of day labor than Mr. Dan Stewart. At the 'annual' meeting of the Association, he was in .par ticularly good form. . He slashed. into the system right and left, smote it hip and thigh,. and chal lenged the Government to have it investigated by a competent tribunal. Day labor, in his opinion, meant the expenditure- of £5,000,000 for a £3,000,000 return. Dav labor overseers had told him things that had niade him marvel how the men put in their time doing so little. ? And the class oi men who were put in charge of the system ! Somi didn't know blue metal from sand. Anything .was put into jobs — ^anything to fill up. So the work was not only badly executed, but the material was bad, and the whole system fell with a crash. All the use'of clay labor was to keep employed a large army of men who could be shifted to centres where erec tions were about to take place.

THE EASTER CONFERENCE. A National Road Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 16 February 1914

THE EASTER CONFERENCE. A National Road Movement. Australasia calls for the best solution of the roads problem. To the present there has been a great deal of talk as to ways and means. The Insti tute intends to act. The Easter Conference is, con sequently, to take the form of a National Roads Congress. We hope, as a result, to at least fix a basis upon which the various governing authorities can work. To the present reliance has been placed in local governing bodies. That would be alright if all employed permanent qualified engineers. But, as you know, some don't. The result is that we have good roads only in strips, or patches. That isn't good enough for a country of our expansiveness or for a people draw ing their wealth from the land such as we do. Good roads might not be altogether our national salvation, but they certainly are prime factors in our national development. It is appropriate that we, as an Institute, should offer some expert solution of the problem since our members ...

The Col. Vernon Memorial Scholarship A PUBLIC FUND ESTABLISHED. The public meeting convened by the Lord Mayor of Sydney to determine, upon a means of perpetuat ing' the memory of the late Coionel \V. L. Vernon, V.D., F.R.I.B.A., was held in the Town Hall on Friday.. February .1.1, the Lord Mayor presiding. The result was a decision to. open a fund for the establishment of a 'Col. Vernon Scholarship in Architecture and Town Planning.' The sum of As Mr. Burcham Clamp said, it. was a. pity that more architects, were not present, as the late Colonel had always been courteous in his reception of architects, and ready with his advice. From our standpoint we thought it a pity, in view of the very regrettable and wholly, erroneous attitude of the Institute toward the late chief of the profession, whose patriotic stand on a national question' was wholly misconstrued, either through motives of jealousy, or downright idiocy. It is true that there were subsequent numerous and unmistakable indi ...

? ♦ ? NOISES— NUMEROUS AND VARIOUS. The other day, Architect R. J. Haddon, of Mel bourne, applied for an injunction against the ring Ing of a suburban church bell, on the grounds that it was a public nuisance. This gave the sub-editor an inspiration. fie writes from the standpoint of a Sydney resident: — Lord Mayor Richards lias the reform lust, the new broom 'habit, or whatever else it is that infers newly-kindled enthusiasm. While he is hot on the cnhWt — time, in the words of the philosopher, being 'a chilling process'— I hasten to suggest my idea of a reform. It is a noiseless city. Anticipating disparagement from the conserva tive section, 1 ask why it is impossible. Chicago ? with apologies to the spirit of Sir (leorge Uibbs — - has undertaken it, and means to win out. Why cannot Sydney? Or better — why cannot Richards? I write feelingly on the subject. Mr. l-'ditor — and you understand.

BRISBANE'S DOMESTIC ARCHITECTURE. A Southern Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 16 February 1914

BRISBANE'S DOMESTIC ARCHITECTURE. A Southern Criticism. Coming into Brisbane after having seen Sydney with its wonderful display of domestic architecture, one is not' favorably impressed with the wooden residences scattered rather more scantily about the slopes overlooking the Brisbane River. The materials used (timber walling with iron roofs) have not. the necessary. depth of color, nor do they allow of sufficient breadth of treatment to make them harmonise with the natural .surroundings. Imagine a wooden house, with its elevation ' chiefly composed of verandah railings, perched on stumps, ranging from six to 20 feet in height, the spaces between these stumps either left open, show ing the floor joists in full view, or filled in with battens spaced apart. There is little chance for the artist in such a building. We would be silly, nevertheless, to condemn this system of construc tion for it seems to be well suited to the local con ditions, and is the result of experience of them. I...
