DANCE AT HOTEL CANBERRA £137 FOR FLOOD RELIEF FUND   The Hotel Canberra was a blaze of light and color on Wednesday   evening, 10th June, when its first large dance was held. The object of the dance was to raise funds for the Queanbeyan Flood Re- lief Fund, and the untiring efforts of the committee and honorary secre- taries were well rewarded, as nearly 300 people attended.

The Hotel Ball- room was kindly lent by the Federal Capital Commission, whilst the hotel staff gave their services free as also did the members of the orchestra.

POINTS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

POINTS Many items held over for want of   space this issue.   The "Newcastle Morning Herald" of N.S.W. towers over the Melbourne "wild-cat'' scare accounts of the flood at Canberra. It stated: "The flood did considerable damage to the New Parliament House, in fact it was ruined." Parliament House was only affected by the rain and that no more—by comparison—with any   building in course of construction during heavy rain. Work was kept going on the interior sections and did not stop as stated.   "The Pioneer" can be purchased direct from the distributing agents, A. M.

ITEMS OF INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

ITEMS OF INTEREST Canada, following the lead of Australia, has decided to have a dis- tinctive Federal, or, Dominion Flag   to be recognised as the "Canadian   Flag" The maple leaf, we presume will have a prominent place. The large number of children gathered round their Empire Night Bonfire at Eastlake gave practical proof of the necessity for a children's recreation ground.   The flood revealed the unsuitabil- ity of some of the sites chosen for employees' domiciles. Colonel Goodwin was out with helpers in the early watches of   "Flood Night" superintending, the settling of the families forced to leave their flooded homes at Eastlake and elsewhere.   Constable Cook was fortunate in finding the body of the young man who was drowned. The first place he tried with the grappling hooks ended his quest. The recent disastrous flood has proved the absolute necessity for "flood boats" to be housed, one near the Power House an...

CANBERRA. PROGRESS OF CITY. FEDERAL PARLIAMENT'S HOME [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

CANBERRA. PROGRESS OF CITY. FEDERAL PARLIAMENT'S HOME Mr. W. M. Hughes, M.P., who has returned from Sydney after a visit to the Capital area, sees no reason to doubt that the next Commonwealth Parliament will meet at Canberra. "I am very pleased," said Mr. Hughes, "with the progress that is being made at Canberra, and am   more than ever convinced that the choice of a site for the Federal capi- tal was a wise one. Those who cham- pioned it in the early days fought against heavy odds. Vested interests,   prejudice, and ignorance were united against them. Seen through the   spectacles of jaundiced and parochial men, Canberra was a place unutter- ably remote—a drab and arid desert. It was described as 'the desert capi- tal,' and expenditure of public money upon its development as wanton, wicked, criminal. "As very few people had any first- hand knowledge of the place and its surroundings, some of this mud stuck. The wheels of progress in the early...

The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. JUNE 20, 1925. THE FLOOD AT CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

T he Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League.   JUNE 20, 1925.   THE FLOOD AT CANBERRA After months of practically dry     weather the outlook for stockowners on Federal Territory was far from bright. Rain came, but it ended in a deluge, resulting in the worst flood known to old residents, who in some cases suffered through the knowledge   of lesser floods and were unprepared for such an inrush. As the flood   waters swept past Queanbeyan into Federal Territory, the Molonglo River widened its serpentine course, to be fed by Black Creek, Mill Creek, and numerous anna branches, all running strongly. Trees, logs, fencing and   haystacks were seen sweeping all before them as they passed the rear of Canberra Power House at East Lake. The name was appropriate as the waters at the causeway, when the flood was at its height, extended for nearly three-quarte...

COMMUNISM [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

COMMUNISM   "The Pioneer" in its articles on   "Communism" hit—solely—at the Third International--Communistic-- Soviet--Propagandists and the widest stretch of imagination could not take it as an attack on the Political Labor Party. We learn a few biased indi- viduals objected—let these objectors go to the Weekly and daily papers and castigate them—aye, and sporting weeklies run by one who makes no secret of his animosity to the "Labor" Movement. Communism hatched in Russia will be the Curse of Australia if not stamped out before it gains more strength.

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. Canberra was the subject of many questions when Federal Parliament resumed work last week. Sir Austin Chapman was seeking information with relation to the opening up of roads and railway communication with Canberra. He informed Major Marr (representing Senator Pearce, Minister for Home and Territories), "That he had made efforts to obtain a quarterly report from the Federal Capital Commission, that had been referred to in the press, but had been unable to do so. He warned the Min- ister that unless the report was made available he would take more stren- uous steps to obtain it." Major Marr promised to have inquiries made, and later informed Sir Austin Chap- man that his department would sup- ply a copy of the report, but it was not to be taken as a precedent that the reports of the Commission would be given.

THE CANBERRA FREEHOLDS ESTATE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR INVESTMENT. MOST SENSATIONAL OFFER OF FREEHOLD LAND IN HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

THE CANBERRA FREEHOLDS ESTATE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR INVESTMENT. MOST SENSATIONAL OFFER OF FREEHOLD LAND IN HISTORY. Opportunity knocks once at every man's door. The man who has the eyes to see it, the mind to realise it, and the courage to grasp it, is the man who will make money. He alone shall one day count his gold in thousands.     Glance around you and recall the men in Australia who are eminently   wealthy. A few may have been blessed with wealth at birth. But the remainder, the middle-class people, how did they make their money? Ask, them.   "We were hard up like you one day," they will tell you. "Then one day opportunity came along and we had the sense to grasp it. To some of us it came in the form of a pur- chase of land. We realised while others gazed at an unoccupied patch of open land that that site might one day bear some magnificent build- ing. We pictured roads in the vicin- ity, a dense population, and sensing t...
