INFANTILE MORTALITY. WITH AND WITHOUT TOWN PLANNING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

? ? ? INFANTILE MORTALITY. WITH AND WITHOUT TOWN PLANNING. The infantile death-rate of Sydney and various suburbs was touched upon by Mr. George A. Tay lor, secretary of the Town Planning Association, when speaking at the Millions Club luncheon. In charging people of past generations with neglect of their proper interests, Captain Taylor put in a strpng plea for the preservation of infant life. The figures he would quote, he said, would stagger anybody who gave, the subject the necessary thought and compared infantile mortality in Syd ney and its suburbs (where there was practically no town planning in its proper form) with Port Sunlight, Sir William Lever's model town, where the planning had been conducted on the highest and most approved scientific lines. 'The infantile death-rate of Balmain, Leichhardt and Annandale,' declared the speaker, 'is 80 per 1000 of population: in Newtown, Erskineville and St. Peters it is 90; in Rcdfern, Darlington, Water loo, Alexandria, Botany and Mas...

TRUSTS. In his annual report, Mayor Smith,. of Kogarah (N.S.W.), 'trusts' that the Government .will make main roads national works. The Government is up against trusts and the use of the word in the mayoral report is appropriate, so far as the Gov ernment's reception of the suggestion is likely to go. :

AUSTRALIAN ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

. ? -»? AUSTRALIAN ROADS. Ex-Councillor Ramsey, of Winchelsea (Vic), has just returned from an extended jaunt on the 'other side.' He went to see roads. He also went to see castles and scenery, but, as he was a coun cillor, and carried a special letter of introduction irom Winchelsea Council, to inquire into muni cipal enterprises generally while in England, he was, naturally, more than a little interested in the 'national highways.' Besides the letter, he carried numerous lively recollections of jolts and jars, occasioned by the bumpy, liver-shaking tracks, that have, for years, been designated roads in Australia. 1-Tf» rpmpmhprpfl flip hnp-s that teams sink nxle deep into after a spell of wet weather. He thought of the language of the teamsters. He recollected all these things. Then he looked at the traces of old Roman roads, and the many fine highways that lead throughout England — north, south, east and west. Not satisfied, entirely, with his own obser vations, he made extensive...

HEAD OR TAIL? [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

HEAD OR TAIL? A correspondent has written suggesting that Kew Council (Vic.) ought to sanction a private enterprise scheme calculated to attract tourists to the district. Anybody who has been to Mel bourne knows the necessity of something being done for the beguiled tourist. Having admired the wide streets, it is a toss up whether you go to see the Kew monument or the Zoo. But with the new scheme Kew wouldn't have to stake its chance of securing a tourist on the toss of a coin, and the council could dispense with its official collection of double-headed pennies and its staff to carry them about on the lookout for indecisive strangers.

THE SALARY PHASE OF PRAISE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

THE SALARY PHASE OF PRAISE. Thus Mayor Smith, of Kogarah (N.S.W.), in his annual report: 'I had no conception of the vol ume of work that has to he accomplished by Mr. Kvans and his staff until 1 was elected to the may oral chair. I think 1 would be perfectly safe in saying that there are few councils in New South Wales where the duties devolving upon the town clerk and his officers are heavier and more varied, and the present excellent and up-to-date methods adopted, and the condition of the council's affairs generally, speak volumes for the organising and administrative capacity of the town clerk.' We must endorse this. When other town clerks have failed to supply facts and figures for articles that would certainly advance the interests of their dis tricts, Town Clerk Evans has never failed, and we trust his salary is in keeping with the mayoral opinion of his splendid services. A good officer is worth remunerating beyond the temptation of other offers. For good officers don't gro...

PRIVATE AND MUNICIPAL ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

PRIVATE AND MUNICIPAL ENTERPRISE. I From a Melbourne correspondent: — A private syndicate wants to do something big j for Kew (Vic.) in the way of creating a garden suburb. It is something that even money can be taken on the council never undertaking, and odds given on the question of the idea never having previously entered the heads of the councillors, but just because a public syndicate is concerned, bogies of monopoly, confiscation, and other of the asin ine and mythological ideas are being raised, in the same manner as a spirit medium produces things out of ether. The private syndicate's scheme amounts to this —the handing over of the development of a large area of East Kew, running almost from the Kew Asylum grounds to the boundary of Camberwell, to a syndicate of British and Australian capital ists; the leasing for 25 years of the right to run j the tramways over about seven miles of the road- i ways of Kew, and the construction at public ex pense of boulevards along the Yarr...

WALGETT'S APPRECIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

WALGETT'S APPRECIATION. ? Walgett Council had occasion recently to do something out of the ordinary, for Walgett coun cil. That is, it passed a compliment, and the per son honored Avas Local Government Engineer French. The official minute is worth quoting: 'The council congratulates their engineer on the ability displayed in designing' tAvo such large Avorks as the Macquarie bridge and the council chambers, and building them within the estimates and Avithout extras.' When a very casual council passes a \rery gloAv ing compliment such as this, the person compli mented can be excused of any pride. THE FEDERAL PRESIDENT, J. M. Smail, M.Inst.C.E. Whoever it Avas, as President of Carrathool (N. S.W.), considered that an engineer's qualifications included the scaling of Avindmills and the descen sion of wells, is not at the head of the table this year. Councillor Mills has taken charge. Even if the Mills of Carrathool grind slowly, let there be some common-sense iii the grinding.

GENIUS AND CHAFF. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

? ♦ ? GENIUS AND CHAFF. The Sub-Editor is reminiscent and, perhaps, phil osophic: The science concerning environmental influences has been, I fear, rudely controverted by the human products of Roma-street markets, Brisbane. Gen ius, as we universally know it, would scarcely be credited, or discredited, with having its delicate being in a germinal atmosphere of chaff and od ors, ranging in intensity from the healthy onion to the decaying parsnip. Evidently it 'has made an exception of those markets- — 'the eccentricity of genius' perhaps ex plains it. However, within five years the Roma street markets have turned out a Premier of Queensland (Hon. D. F. Denham), the present Acting-Premier (Hon. W. H., Barnes), the recently elected Mayor of South Brisbane (Aid. J. Allen), aldermen and J's.P. too numerous to mention, and — your Sub-Editor, who got his cub experience there. For my part, if I got any genius there I swear I swallowed it with all the first-quality chaff and the second-quali...

J.M. COANE, M.InstC.E. One of the most important items of the Easter Conference Avill be the reports from Mr. J. M. Coane, M.Inst C.E., avIio repre sented the Institute at the late International Roads Conference. The trip Avas undertaken by Mr. Coane at his own expense, the short-sighted Governments — Federal and State — of the time re fusing, although advised by the Institute of the importance cf the conference, to send an official representative. They are, hoAvevcr, certain to take all for nothing now that Mr. Coane has returned. This is one of the reasons why Australia is so much behind in many things. ? w ?

STANDARD FIRE ESCAPES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

STANDARD FIRE ESCAPES. The Superintendent of the Brisbane Fire Brig ade, in his official report to the Board, drew at tention .to the need of a standard system of escapes to embrace buildings of every class, and applic able throughout the State. 'Buildings are growing upward everywhere,' the report continued, 'but in a number of cases, emergency exits seem to have been overlooked. One type of exit from high buildings, however, wants turning down, and that is the vertical ladder, because women and children could never use it; they should be catered for, and suitable stairs provided. There are structures- which, I believe, are exempt from the provisions of either municipal law, or the Shops and Factories Act, which badly require usable emergency exits. 'Seeing that the principle of protecting life from fire is enjoined by law -through the ??State— but only in certain classes of buildings— perhaps your Board,which is also enjoined to protect life from fire could recommend the Governmen...

THE FIRE BOOM. A WORD TO AUSTRALIAN CITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

THE FIRE BOOM. A WORD TO AUSTRALIAN CITIES. The manager of a builders' supply house is a little waggish, but to the point. 'The fire boom in Sydney and Melbourne has inspired a solitary correspondent to the press to suggest that a modern building act is warned in, each city. I think I have heard the argument be fore. Anyhow, it seems very feasible that an act removing present restrictions to the use of, fire resisting materials would be a good thing for Syd ney and Melbourne. I think we might all well agree upon that. Furthermore, I don't think that fires pay. And the statement that men in the des peration of being unable to balance their books nave set nre 10 ineir ounaings is, 1 tninic, too aD surd for serious thought. The real question, however, is why. the man who wants to burn down his premises should des troy the properties of others as well. Whatever is done in the future, some act or by-law should be pased prohibiting the erection of fire traps in congested areas. The owner ...

UNIMPROVED VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 30 March 1914

'? ' . — ? * ? UNIMPROVED VALUE. The term 'unimproved value' becomes more and more a misnomer in describing the original value of land (wrote W. S. Targett in a recent issue of1 the press). As this is the basis for taxation in the great majority of our municipalities, it would be well to be more exact in definition. Not a day passes but a statement is made similar to this of Botany: 'There is an increase on the unimproved capital value of £29,110 over that of 1913.' If last year's value was a correct value, and was not a considerable rise from that of the previous year, that must be a fixed quantity, and, perforce, can not alter. A simpler method would-be to use the term 'ground value,' which would comprehend the automatic rise in values. A MELBOURNE CONSTRUCTIONAL ATTRACTION.
