MORE CONCILIATION. Even the Plasterers are Satisfied. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

MORE CONCILIATION. Even the Plasterers are Satisfied. When the plasterers are satisfied it is saying something for the means responsible for their satis faction. „? It is conciliation in this case. Last week an agreement Avas fixed up between the Union and the N.S.W. Master Builders' Association. We are told, that concessions were made on each side, but we note that the men have received a rise in wages of 3/- per day. As Mr. E. H. Buchanan mentioned recently, the, men will be found ' ready to conciliate while increases are given them; but when times arise that may mean decreases— what then? So long as times are good and the public can afford to pay for increases, well and' good. When the time arrives that the investor will not be quite in the same position to pay up, we are afraid that conciliation, like arbitration, will be declared a failure.- . ?

"The Absent-minded. Beggar." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

'The Absent-minded. Beggar.' Wharf Strike ! Off Strike ! Strike of each allied trade ! Goods are ruined — Trade is wrecked — the wharfies have they day; They draw their strike allowances and shipping is delayed, Whilst Mr. Common Public has to pay, pay, pay! And whilst the usual strike is on, up goes the price of meat! Up goes the price of sugar, bread and tea ! Up goes the price of groceries and everything you eat! And when the strike is off what do you see? I The 'boss' and men 'conciliate' — but up the prices | stay, The difference in cost they share, you'll find it; [ So Mr. Common Public knows for each strike he I must pay, 1 In 'rising prices' that come up behind it. I Crazy Strike ! Lazy Strike ! this is a weary song, j 'The Unions are out again — another bob a j day'; Up the cost of living goes — they pass the price along To Mr. Common Public, who must pay, pay, pay! * But Mr. Common Public, who now worries, growls and frets, At Polling time he gets a chance to rule; But as ...

Architects, Builders and Engineers THAT BUILDING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

Architects, Builders and Engineers THAT BUILDING ACT. The Works Committee of the Sydney City Coun cil discussed the same old subject at its last meet ing. -The City Architect reported that at tl\p time the Amended Bill was framed, it was made ?sufficiently.' elastic to admit of alterations and im provements from time to time by means of giving power to the council to make by-laws. It was recommended that this plan be adopted and the passing into law of the bill as it is already framed be lirfpri forward hv tlir» rnnncil We are not certain that the council's draft makes specific provision for the free use of reinforced con crete. The council should be certain on this point before' adopting the recommendation: of the Works Committee. Then the council might also discuss the advisableness of appointing an expert Board to advise it in connection with the architecture of buildings proposed to be erected. The council, acting on the expert advice of a properlycon stituted Board, should have...

RHYMES FOR THE TIMES. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

RHYMES FOR THE TIMES. No. 1. [By G.A.T. When you've doubted 'arbitration' and the men have downed their tools, ^ Or the 'bosses' take a hint and lock 'em out; There's a silly little noodle in the rigmarole of fools, Who never knows what all the row's about. He's an absent minded beggar, for he very soon forgets, In every blessed labor row you'll find him; His name is Common Public, and when strikes are on he frets, Trfnr he'i crnt a wife anrl little fines hehind him. Meat Strike! Wheat Strike! Strike of a hundred trades! Forty thousand unionists will knock off work and play; Affecting forty thousand more in other ranks and grades, And Mr, Common Public has to pay, pay, psy! If a Union Tram Conductor cannot wear a badge of tin, To his usual job you'll find he will not roam; He ties the Tramway System up and so the cars stay in, And Mr. Public walks — or stays at home !

HOW WAGES ARE ADVANCING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

HOW WAGES ARE ADVANCING. It is quite certain that manufacturers' profits have not grown in the same ratio as wages. In fact, the advances of late have been such as to seriously eat into profits in ! man)' industries. During the past seven ,years the advance has averaged 34^ per cent, in general wages in this1' State. 'A comparison is given below : — Probably the actual average in 1914 will approach 40 per cent, over 1905, unless strikes reduce the dayjj worked very materially. 1005. 1912. ?.Industry — . £ s. d. £- s. d. .

"THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA." The Institute in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

'THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA.' The Institute in Queensland. We characterised the advent of the Institute in Queensland as the dawn of a new era in the Local Government of that State, and we notice that the opinion is shared by Mr. L. V. Wilkinson (Council lor (Q.) to Professional Officers' Association), who uses that phrase in the concluding portion of a letter to the Brisbane 'Courier,' in reference to the estab lishment of the Queensland Section. He wrote :— The decision of the Institute of Local Govern ment Engineers of Australasia to establish a centre in Queensland, is a step in the right direction, and should do much to improve the deplorable condition of Queensland country roads. It is true that the movement is looked upon askance by the local au thorities, for they see with its advent the necessity fnr PmniiviiKr fulKr enmnplAnt /-itiaiifin/1 mon of o proper professional rate of remuneration. Of course, it is absurd. for the shire councils to think that they can get efficient prof...

THE NATIONAL ROADS CONFERENCE. Being the Institute's Annual Conference, Sydney, April 7th, 8th, 9th. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

THE NATIONAL ROADS CONFERENCE. Being the Institute's Annual Conference, Sydney, April 7th, 8th, 9th. ? 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 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 ...
