Captain Bruce, Prime Minister [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 3 December 1924

Captain Bruce, Prime Minister   On his return from active service, and at a welcome, the then Prime Minister forecasted that Mr. Bruce   would be his probable successor, as he had evidently closely studied his political career. By a sudden turn of the political wheel the prophecy     was fulfilled. One is struck with the   strength of his leadership; when al- most on the verge of Ministerial shipwreck his intervention has steer- ed clear of the danger the Ship of State. During his recent visit to the N.S.W. Capital he made one state- ment that, if followed, would un- doubtedly bring to the aid of the Government many thousand electors who are "halting between two opin-   ions." Addressing a meeting at the   National Club, the Sydney press in-   formed us, he stated, "The National Party should recognise they were a   National party formed in time of   stres...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 3 December 1924

THIS sounds the "reveille" of "The   Federal Capital Pioneer." In issuing this, the first newspaper   printed and published on Federal   City Territory, its first note sounds a call for just recognition of the work of the pioneer explorers of this vast   continent, a continent destined to be   greater than any ere another cen-   tury has been added to the present.     When we study the design, by Mr. Walter Burley Griffin, for our Federal   Capital City, and its environs, the   absence of the names of the men who   marked 0ut the tracks which, later     on, through their self-sacrificing la-       bours and scientific reports led to     the unfolding of the Pastoral, Agri-   cultural, and Mineral possibilities of   &nbs...

Mr. W. M. Hughes, P.C., M.H.R., Etc. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 3 December 1924

Mr. W. M. Hughes, P.C., M.H.R., Etc. William Morris Hughes is an ex-   ample of the democratic possibilities         of our continent and constitution, as   far as individual effort and merit are   concerned. From obscurity, practic-   ally, he rose by sheer force of intel- lect, personality and ambition to the highest pinnacle of political life. Landing in Australia a friendless   stranger, after many vicissitudes and in spite of obstacles that would have checked the ardour of many stronger men, he became leader among the   leaders of men. This is not fulsome flattery, nor an   eulogium, but downright fact. The writer knew him in days when the fight for better conditions were along the roads of unpopularity and scorn from the seats of the mighty—his foresight at all times was keen and   sturdily optimistic. Take the in- stances,...

A Welcome to "The Pioneer." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 3 December 1924

A Welcome to "The Pioneer." (By W. M. Hughes, M.H.R.)     The publication of "The Federal Capital Pioneer" is a page in the history of Australia. The first issue of this journal must find a place in the archives of the Capitol. In the days when Canberra shall have come into her own and its name be known to the peoples of all lands as the capital city of the great and thickly populated Australia that is to be,   Australians will speak of the "Pio- neer" as do the Americans of the first paper printed in Washington. But the publication of the "Pio-     neer" is something more than a mere historical event, it is a sign of the times. This journal is the leader of       the vanguard, the banner-bearer of the new order of things. The Com- monwealth is about to set up house   for itself. In a very little while the   National Parliament will assemble in its own ho...

Australia, Awake! [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 3 December 1924

With no uncertain sound "The     Pioneer" makes this appeal. While many of our somnolent politicians   are only thinking of ease, the subtle   propaganda of the Communist Party is quietly spreading and eating as a canker into our national life. Daily we read of some ultraist giving So- viet dope to Australian audiences.   Miss Goldman, an erstwhile devotee at the shrine of Lenin and Trotsky, has declared, "The graft and the greed of the majority of those in authority has made, and is making, Russia worse than it was under the   rule of the Czar."     Our constitution, "broad based     upon the people's will," is what we       make it through the representatives we select. The proofs we have of Soviet misrule, injustice, and blood- lust are sufficient, or should be, to satisfy any intelligent being that in- stead of b...

The Present and The Future. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 3 December 1924

The Present and The Future.     As this unpretentious issue comes under the critical eye of public   opinion, the Editor asks for due con- sideration of the difficulties, which,     for lack of proper facilities for the erection of the machinery prevented us from launching "The Pioneer"     in a more up-to-date form.   I am deeply indebted to Messrs. A. M. Fallick & Sons, of 'The Advo- cate," Queanbeyan, for the invalu- able assistance they have willingly given to enable this first newspaper   printed at Canberra, to see the light of publicity.   Our intense desire in sending       "The Pioneer" on its way is to strengthen the minds of those who   aim at making this great Common-     wealth of ours safe for democracy under sane, safe, sound and solid con- stituitional la...

THE PIONEER. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

THE PIONEER.     Australia is a masterful land, to be wooed by masterful men;   It was so when the First Fleet came, it is even now as then.     Nor have such men been lacking, as history's pages show,   And where the virgin forest stood   now grain or fruit-trees grow. Since Wentworth and his two staunch friends the mountain guard first scaled,   Our country's unknown hinterland has slowly been unveiled. Brave men with English, Irish, Scotch or Welsh blood in their veins, Went forth into the wilderness and suffered countless pains; Such men were Burke and Wills and Sturt, and Mitchell, King and Gray, And other daring spirits also helped to pave the way. Settlers came and built their homes along the tracks thus blazed, Their land they cleared of timber, and upon it live-stock grazed. The pioneers conquered, for they'd ne'er admit defeat,   They stood their ground unda...

Canberra Cemetery [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Canberra Cemetery One of the urgent needs of the Federal Capital is a convenient ceme- tery. This question seems to have been overlooked by those in authority, therefore it is hoped the new Com- mission will make it a point of con- sideration. At present there is only the old cemetery at Canberra C. of E. grounds. True, all denominations have had the use of it in the past, but as "God's acre" is by laws of State divided to suit the desires of the different creeds, it has caused ex- pense, often falling heavily on some who could ill afford it to have their relative interred in their own par- ticular consecrated ground. There have been instances where a death of a workman has occurred at the Cotter River, and the body had to be conveyed to the nearest General Cemetery, viz., Queanbeyan, over 20 miles. Other cases who have died in Canberra Hospital have also had to travel to Queanbeyan. A ceme- tery is badly needed. Is the question one of a Cemetery or a Crematorium? On hygenic grounds...

Items of Interest. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Items of Interest. Canberra is quickly forging ahead. Each week sales of business and resi- dential isites are recorded. Among the buyers recently, two prominent Labor Members in the House of Representatives obtained building blocks in the vicinity of Red Hill. It is time some of the "Staff" Em- ployees started to boost Canberra in- stead of bemoaning the fact that they are not in Melbourne. Canberra has a climate which the sturdy children upon its soil proves, beyond doubt, is second to none. The Commission, having taken over, has caused a flutter in the dove- cots among some who thought them selves indispensible. A Citizens' League could do good work and help to boost Canberra. "The Pioneer' is your paper, help us to circulate it. Send us in your items of interest. We have a W.P.B. for items from personal venom, sectarian or egotis- tical scribblers. "The Pioneer" will be issued monthly and when machinery is in stalled will hold its own for a newsy and" popular magazine. We trust ...

Encouraging Opinions [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Encouraging Opinions FROM PROMINENT PEOPLE The following telegram was re- ceived from the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth, Captain Bruce, on the day "The Pioneer," was pub- lished, and too late for insertion:— Received at Canberra P.O., 2.50 P.M., Dec. 3rd, 1924. From Melbourne. Desire offer congratulations on publication and wish Federal Capital Pioneer a long and useful and suc- cessful career. (Signed) F. M. BRUCE. The prophetic foreword of wel- come, so aptly phrased by Mr. W. M. Hughes, K.C., M.H.R., published in the first issue of this modest journal, was copied and quoted by papers in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and in many places in the Commonwealth as far as Thargomindah and Cooper's Creek in Queensland. Mr. Hughes places us under further obligation of thanks to him for a kind word after seeing the first edition. He writes: "I have received 'Tle Pioneer.' I am delighted to know the function was a success and that your paper is such a good thing." Sir Austin Chapman send...

The Federal Capital Pioneer JANUARY, 1925. "The Pioneer" Prize Poem [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

The Federal Capital Pioneer JANUARY, 1925.   "The Pioneer" Prize Poem In the first issue a prize of £1/-/- for the best poem on "The Pioneer" was offered and the response was gratifying to the Editor, who had the competition judged by a competent gentleman who wishes his name omitted, but his judgment is en- dorsed. Miss A. Roper, of 65 Brad- ley Street, Goulburn, is the winner, whose poem shows constructive and descriptive merit as well as ability to poetically express her original   ideas. Mr. G. B. Lowery, of Tuggra- nong, was "runner up." We thank the competitors for their interest. Space forbids publishing more than the two mentioned poems. THE FEDERAL CAPITAL PIONEER I am the Pioneer. I pave the way To glorious doings of a later day.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Bereavement Notice. Keen sorrow was expressed when the news spread on the Territory that Septimus Shepherd - better known as "Barney" Shepherd-had passed to the "Great Unknown" in Queanbeyan Hospital after a very short illness. He was a type of     young man the community could ill spare. At his duties as "Plant" Store- man at the Stores Branch, Eastlake, he was a conscientious, painstaking, reliable employee. In private life, a clean-living man and a model hus- band. Only a week before he was stricken down with the disease from which he died (pneumonic influenza) he had followed to the grave his bon- nie second youngest child, George aged 2½ years, from the same com- plaint. Those who stood by "Bar- ney"' at the graveside of his little one, little thought he, the father, would so shortly, be taken, as he was the picture of health, over 6ft. in height, and built in proportion. Dr. Christie attended and both he and the matron and nurses at the hospital were ...

Sir Henry Parkes, K.C.M.G THE FATHER OF FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Sir Henry Parkes, K.CM.G THE FATHER OF FEDERATION. In the first issue of "The Pioneer" reference was made to the fact that to Mr. John Gale, J.P., of` Quean- beyan—still keen of intellect, and re- markable for his memory, though 94 years have passed since he arrived on this planet, and easily the oldest living journalist in the Common- wealth—belongs the honor of being called "The Father of Canberra, Federal Capital." None dispute it, for his pamphlet, printed at the time under the title of "Dalgety or Canberra—Which?" leaves no room to doubt it was his clear, concise, logical, and able advocacy of Can- berra, with its natural resources so accurately described (to the detri- ment of Dalgety), convinced the Cabi- net and Parliament of the Common- wealth, and won the day for Canberra. But the first voice to be raised publicly, and prominently, for Fed- eration of the States of the Common- wealth, was that of that far-seeing statesman, the late Sir Henry Parkes. Gifted with wonderful f...

Country Tennis Carnival THE QUEANBEYAN TEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 January 1925

Country Tennis Carnival THE QUEANBEYAN TEAM.     The members of the Queanbeyan team, which comprised Messrs. Find- lay (captain), Ayliffe, Martin, and Carnall, have reason to be pleased with their success in the above com- petition. Not only have they per-   formed splendidly, but they have shown that the standard of tennis in the Federal Territory and district is certainly points in advance of most country centres, for they were suc- cessful in obtaining the best average in their division. There were eight teams in the division, including West Wyalong, in which team was Kalms, of Davis Cup fame. Having won 39 sets as against 38 each by West Wya- long and Crookwell, the Queanbeyan team performed meritoriously. Find- lay and Ayliffe were the stronger pair, and only 7 sets were lost out of 32 played, 2 sets being lost to the Kalms brothers, and 2 sets to Les. Baker and Reid of the Newcastle team, the former having since de- feated Schlesinger, a ...
