Keen rivalry is in evidence be- tween Sir Henry Jones, and a fi-     nancial group headed by Mr, Will- iam Avery of Melbourne, to estab-   lish the paper pulp industry in   Tasmania.   The Parliamentary Joint Com- mittee's report has beer postponed In order to allow S . Henry Jones, to explain his proposals. He made it clear that his offer to pay a royaltiy to the government of 5/- a cord on timber was contig- ent on the promise of the Federal Government to frame a protective   tariff of £4 a ton being carried out.         On Friday, Sir Henry Jones will increase his offer of a deposit of £2,000 to £10,000, with at the end   of twelve months, a further £10,000   if required.

PRINCE'S VISIT Accommodation Problems CAMPING & PARKING AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

PRINCE'S VISIT Accommodation Problems CAMPING & PARKING AREAS.   The forthcoming visit to Australia for the Duke and Duchess of York for the purpose of opening the Federal Parliament in Canberra in May next, has added con- siderably to the work which has been entrusted to the Federal Capital Com- mission in connection with the trans- fer of the seat of government from     Melbourne. The decision to have a one day cere- mony only in Canberra is regarded in many quarters as hardly fair to the Federal Capital, particularly as dur- ng the period which elapses between now and the official opening so much progress could be made in providing accommodation. The difficulty appears however, to be not so much the official guests at the opening ceremony, as the tremendous crowds of people who will probably visit Canberra. This is a quantity which cannot be estimated, and in view of the facilities of motor transport, there is no means of deter- mini...

SEWERAGE PLANS For 100,000 People LECTURE TO ENGINEERS Melboure, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

SEWERAGE PLANS For 100,000 People LECTURE TO ENGINEERS Melbourne, Thursday. Plans for sewerage disposal at Can- berra were described by the principal Civil Engineer of the Federal Depart- ment for Works and Railways (Mr. H. G. Connell) at a meeting of the Victorian Institute of Engineers at which the Chief Engineer (Mr Hill) presided. "The city of Canberra," Mr. Connell   stated, "was planned to accommodate a population of 100,000 people, and was divided into four parts by a series of ornamented lakes. Though the pop- ulation would probably reach 15,000 in a few years, it was difficult to fore- cast the size of the population after ten years. Consequently the problem to be solved was sewerage for several communities scattered over an area of 16 square miles and with a total population of 15,000, which might be increased to 100,000, but the rate of in- crease of which was unknown. A principle which had been main-   tained was that the sewerage must be carrie...

GHASTLY FIND Man's Throat Cut SUICIDE IN CAMP At two o'clock on Monday afternoon the camp steward at Weetangera Road   workmen's camp made a grim discovery   when he looked into the tent of Harry     Crawford. Crawford was lying in his bunk with     his throat cut and an examination   showed that death had not taken place       very long before the discovery. The deceased, who was a returned   soldier and of about 42 year of age,     was a very retiring man, and was not     known to mix much with the men of the camp. He was last seen on Sunday   afternoon when he retired to his   tent, and owing to his disposition, his     absence from meals was not noticed.     The camp steward however who casually looked into his...
