ELECTRIC TIME SERVICE. Installation at Commissioners' Offices. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

ELECTRIC TIME SERVICE. Installation at Commissioners' Offices. The service of clocks throughout the de- partments, worked electrically, are so timed to work together, keeping accurately the same time to the fraction of a second. Á similar system is being built for Parliament House by the makers, Prouds, Ltd., Sydney. The pendulum of the master clock is, so to speak, the controller, as far as accuracy is concerned, and drives, mechanically a train of wheels, and controls the circuit of clocks.

Governor Phillip- An Appreciation [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

Governor Phillip-An Appreciation BY CAPTAIN J. H. WATSON, PRESIDENT, ROYAL AUSTRALIAN HISTORICAL SOCIETY It may be appropriate at this time when the Commonwealth of Australia is preparing to officially establish her capifial city at Can- berra, where the Parliament which is to con- trol its six States,, and its Territories, con- taining over six million of people scattered over its vast area, will be established, and opened by a son of the King, to glance back one hundred and thirty-eight years to the time when the germ of this nationality was planted on the border of Sydney Cove by that great, but little-known man, Captain Arthur Philli», R.N. In 1786 the British Government deemed it necessary through the revolt of the North American colonies to find a place to which to send its surplus criminals, who could not be housed in its gaols, its former dumping ground being closed. New South Wales, along which coast Captain Cook had sailed, was recommended by Sir Joseph Banks, who had acco...

The Father of the Australian Press [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

The Father of the Australian Press BY J. A. FERGUSON, BARRISTER AT-LAW M R A.H.S. "It seems not inappropriate that in the first issue of this PIONEER Magazine of Can- berra, a tribute should be paid to the life and work of the Caxton of Australasian typo- graphy. George Howe, alias George Happy, this pioneer printer, arrived under sentence of transportation in the ship Boyal Admiral, on the 22nd November, 1800. His father, Thomas Howe was the Government Printer at Basse- terre, capital of the island of St. Christopher, in the West Indies. George Howe was born At St. Kitts in 1769, and probably served his apprenticeship as a printer under his father. His brother was certainly an assistant in his father's establishment. In later years George is found in London pursuing his trade, and incidentally serving on the staff of The Times. He was about thirty-one years old when he reached Sydney and presented his credentials to Governor King. Howe was a good trades- man, as is proved by the wo...

FOR ASTHMA SUFFERERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

FOR ASTHMA SUFFERERS. The dried leaves of the noxious weed com- monly called "The Castor Oil plant," found in almost every part of the Australian bush, gave relief to old stockmen, and others, suf- fering from asthma, when smoked in a pipe. The writer remembers seeing many with a small bag of dried leaves.

THE ROWAN TREE. Transplanted from Ross-shire to Canberra. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

Budding Macartneys and Maileys at Canberra. THE ROWAN TREE. Transplanted from Ross-shire to Canberra. Oh! rowan, you were cradled Where the Conon waters flow, The soughing wind your lullaby Your coverlet the show. Ben Wy vis watched above you From her mighty towering crest, And held you and your brothers Tn the shelter of her breast. In spring's fair dawning you beheld The wakening of the wood, The violet, and the primrose sweet, Crept close to where you stood. The wild life of the mountains Drew near you unafraid; The foxglove, loved by fairy folk, Stalled to you from the glade. You caught the gleam of Lochan, Shining silver in the lisrht. Or dreaming, felt the lightfoot deer Brush past you in the night. 'Twas when the hills were purple With the heather's scented bloom, And Wyvis slumbered in the sun That fate stood by her loom. And snapped the thread that held you To the spot which gave you birth, And stranger hands-though kindly Bore you, unresisting, forth, To a far-off southern...

Sir Henry Parkes [From the pen of Mr. Victor Cohen, we present to our readers some incidents in the life of Sir Henry Parkes, the Father of Federation. Mr. Victor Cohen is an Australian]. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

Sir Henry Parkes [From the pen of Mr. Viator Cohen, we pre- sent to our readers some incidents in the life of Sir Henry Parkes, the Father of Federation. Mr. Victor Cohen is an Australian]. So much already has been published re- cording the more serious doings of men hold- ing high office in our State that I venture to recount some personal experiences covering the lighter side of their lives. Sir Henry Parkes, though of a seriously constructed mind, as evidenced by his many statesmanlike acts, had his moments of humor; indeed it was that combination which made him so popular. He revelled in it, and often turned an implacable foe into a certain friend. He would draw his opponent into a corner and confidentially whisper he had a good tale to impart, and, like the spider and the fly, trapped his man. I well recollect a reporter from the Mel- bourne Argus, loaned to the Sydney Morning Herald-it being the practice to interchange members of the staff in those days-visiting Sydney. This y...

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS AT CANBERRA.
