Mr. Pettit was re-elected president. Mr. Can field was nomninated for the posl tron, but declined the honor, re marking in doing so that the last committee had been too well ser ved by Mr. Pettit to think of a change.

COST OF NEW ROADS. -0---o- THE SHIRE COUNCIL'S AP PREHENSION. Councillor \Whittakcrs raised the works under the Country Roads question of the cost of new road 3oard spccificaitons, at the meet ing of the Traralgon shire council on Wecdncsday. He said he had spoken to a large number of shire councillors lately, and all had ex pressed concern at the cost of the roads. It seemed that the new main roads would swamp all the -revenue. and leave nothing for the by-roads. Some councillors had suggested that the width of the formation should be reduced. The secretary estimated that the board had approved of 47 miles ot new roads in the shire. \' '.At an average cost of £1000 per mile, that would mean £47,000, and the council would have to find half the amount, which would entail an an nual charge of £1500 on the re venue. Councillor Pettit mentioned that in the Healvesville shlure a road o'had recently been metalled. Stilt the board insisted, when it took over the road, that the metal must b...

'THE LOCAL GAS WORKS CONDEMNATORY REPORT, S"MOST UNSATISFACTORY CONDITION." IMPROVEMENTS WILL COST NEARLY £70. Mr. Hunt, one of the Colonial Colonial Gas Association experts, recenti paid a yvisit of inspection to the Traralgon gas works. -The 'tollowing report from him was read at the council meeting on Wednes day : With reference to my recent, visit to yourgas works, I now have much- pleasure in submitting, a brief report thereon for you: con sideration. In the first place I may say that .the only pieces of gas making ap paratus tiow in use at your works which appear to be in satisfactory order are the purifiers and the gas holder. The retort bench has fa! len into very bad order, the con densing* plant is inadequate, and there. is no exhausting or scrub bing plant in use, nor is there any means of ascertaining how much gas you are making per ton of coal carbonised. You: manager appears to have made some slight altera tion to the existi lg annular con denser since my 'revious visi...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 April 1914
Advertisers and subscribers will please note that-in consequence ot the Easter Holidays there will be NO ISSUE ot "The Journal" on Tuesday, April 14. The Gas Works. The voluminous expert report on the Traralgon gas works, p\iblshed on the fourth page ot this issue, fully justifies all the excration that has been heaped upon the Traral gon gas, and fully proves that,the gas consumers are a long suffer ing people. One sentence in the report is quite sufficient. Mr \V. H. Hunt says: " The gas works are in a most unsatisfactory condition, either from a gas.mnaking or a gas cleansing point of view, and I should imagine that your consum ers have been-suffering from incon venience as a result of impure gas .being supplied to their burners." The 'word "inconvenience" is far too mild, and doos not nearly ex press all that the gas consumers of Traralgon have suffered from foul gas. After ,reading the re port, one is not surpnsed that the gas chokes the :burners, and blac kens the mantles, and...
