FATAL SMASH At Sparrow's Hill DRIVER KILLED CAR WRECKED.   A serious motor accident which occurred early on Tuesday morn- ing at Sparrow's Hill, about eight miles from Queanbeyan, resulted in the death of the driver, William Henry Hambly, and serious in- juries to Ins companion, Andrew Bridson, of Queanbeyan. The accident occurred at a dangerous turn of the road, but it was apparent from an Inspection of the scene after the fatality, that the car was travelling at an excessive speed at the time of the mishap, for after leaving the road, it   travelled for more than 40 yards be- fore striking a tree with considerable force. It appears that Bridson and Hambly left Queanbeyan on Monday at 6 p.m. for Tarago in an Amilcar, which was the property of Mr. J. Esmond, garage proprietor, of Queanbeyan. According to Mr. Esmond, the car, which is valued at £300, was away without his permis- sion. The car was completely wrecked. The return trip to Queanbeyan was being ma...

THE TITLE OF ESQUIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

THE TITLE OF ESQUIRE What gives a man the right to be termed "esquire"? The title comes from the French "ecuyer," a "shield bearer," but has, of course, long since lost all military significance. According to one authority the title is strictly ap- plicable only to the younger sons of the nobility, to officers of the King's house- hold, to Counsellors of law, Justices of the Peace, Sheriffs, holders of Commis- sions in the Navy or Army and grad- uates of the Universities, though by courtesy, it is given also to solicitors, surgeon's, bankers, the landed gentry, and gentlemen of "independent means."

Topics of the Times THE FEDERAL CAPITAL LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

Topics of the Times THE FEDERAL CAPITAL LEAGUE. In Sydney a few years ago a number of high-minded citizens formed what is known as the Federal Capital League. That was at a time when Canberra as the Federal Capital City was the plaything of every member of the Commonwealth Parliament, or of the Commonwealth Administrative De- partments, who sought to delay the performance of section 125 of the Com-   monwealth Constitution Act except in   so far as the last sentence of the sec- tion was concerned. With the aid, however, of other members of past Commonwealth Governments, and public spirited bodies such as the Fed- eral Capital League, Canberra has be- come a reality, and the speed of its development under the Federal Capital Commission has been such that no grit thrown into the bearings in Melbourne could be of any avail. At the com-   mencement of this period of intense development, an opportunity was of- fered to the public of Australia to par...

"KIA ORA CANBERRA" [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

"KIA ORA CANBERRA" Since the first production six weeks ago of "The Canberra Times," there has been interesting comments in the press everywhere on the newspaper of the Federal Capital City. While many of the comments have been to praise the newspaper itself and to commend personally its proprietors, the most im- portant from the public standpoint were those which indicated the great help to the advancement of Canberra which the press generally has ac- knowledged "The Canberra Times" to be. From far and wide, wherever "The Canberra Times" circulates, from within Australia and from abroad, there is evidence that the newspaper has helped to make Canberra better known, and bring it closer to the peo- ple. As illustrative of the added in-   terest which people are likely to dis- play in Canberra now that it has an articulate voice through a newspaper of its own, which may be looked to not in vain, the following clipping from a newspaper in New Zealand may prove of interest ...

SIR ALAN COBHAM GRAND FLIGHT ENDED "Perfect Flying Country" [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

SIR ALAN COBHAM GRAND FLIGHT ENDED   "Perfect Flying Country" The honour of Knighthood of the British Empire has been conferred on Captain Alan Cobham following the completion of his famous flight from England to Australia and back. His companions have been also recognised, Sergeant Ward receiving the Air Force Medal, and Mr. Caper being made a member of the Order of the British Empire. The announcement was made at a luncheon in London tendered the three men by the Air Council. The Secre- tary of State for the Air (Sir Samuel Hoare) stated that Sir Alan Cobham's flight had been entirely of a private effort. The objective of the Imperial Government, he said, should be to bring London within a fortnight's distance of every Empire capital, and Sir Alan Cobham's flight had proved that there was no technical reason against this. If air resources could be organised so that they could be moved from one part of the Empire to another, defence effi- ciency would be vastly increas...

THE ROYAL VISIT May Occupy Three Days EARLIER PLANS UNDER REVISION The plans for the visit to Canberra next year of the Duke and Duchess of York, are to be considered at a conference to be held in Canberra on Tuesday. Announcements made hitherto of the duration of stay of the Duke of York will be altered considerably as a result of recommendations which will be placed before the committee in charge of the arrangements. It is likely that the visit to Canberra by the royal party may occupy three days, the inadequacy of the one day stay previously announced having been realised. The final details of the tour of the Duke of York in Australia have not yet been finalised, but will be one of the matters which will receive the attention of the Prime Minister (Mr. S. M. Bruce) during his stay in England. Plans for the ceremony of opening parliament will be on an elaborate scale. Representatives from every dominion in the British Empire will be present, and every state and capital city of the Commonwealth will be fully represented. The plans contemplate 1200 men being present, representing all units of the army and navy. The navy will be represented by 400 men, the Royal Air Force by 200 men, the cadet forces by 130, and boy scouts by 100. Extensive accommodation will be provided for camping in various areas of the city, and it is stated that the Federal Capital Commission will make arrangements for parking something like 60,000 motor and other vehicles in special areas.
