CANBERRA MALIGNED [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925
CANBERRA MALIGNED &nbsp; An Anti-Canberra Melbourne &nbsp; &nbsp; scribe, in a tirade of abuse, states: "There is nothing to show for the money spent." He is invited to in- spect the Afforestation Branch, which, in the first place, would give him splendid lung and walking ex- ercise, from the slopes of the moun- tains towering over the Murrumbid- gee and Cotter Rivers where wattle &nbsp; will be blooming in a few weeks' time. Then to the splendid Nursery at Yarralumla, and other effects— not optical illusions—carried out at Westridge, The Hostel, Acton and its Nursery, Civic Centre, Eastlake, Blandfordia, and other places, and he would have his answer from one aspect. Then take Electrical Light- ing and Power, and the vast work of the Main Sewer, and he would see practical work of a necessary charac- ter. Buildings and roadmaking, quarrying operations, cement pipe making, and the extensive storage of water at the reservoirs constructed on Mount Stroml...
EMPIRE NIGHT BONFIRE AT EASTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925
EMPIRE NIGHT BONFIRE AT EASTLAKE The annual Empire night bonfire organised by the children of Eastlake took place on Monday night, 24th &nbsp; May, at 7.30 p.m., on the spare ground which it is ardently hoped the Government will grant for a &nbsp; children's playground. A working &nbsp; community effort would fix swings, etc. The ground is situated between &nbsp; the cottages facing the Power House and the Eastlake Mess. A children's committee circularised the residents and Miss Grace Hays and Master &nbsp; Harry Trevellian were the hon secre- taries and organisers. A huge bonfire was erected, super- interinded by Mr. H. Martin, who was assisted by Messrs. F. Northam, W. Tilley, T. Trevellian, A. Murray, and others. &nbsp; Fortunately the night was fine, though rain threatened. Mrs. J. H. Goodwin performed the ceremony of placing a small torch to the stack, which she consented to last year. There was a gathering of between 200 and 300....
Presentation to Mrs. Horsburgh. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
Presentation to Mrs. Horsburgh. &nbsp; In an unostentatious, kindly way, for a considerable time, Mrs. Chas. Horsburgh has carried on regularly a Sunday Sshool for the children at Acton. Mr. Horsburgh's recent pro motion to Melbourne -necessitates &nbsp; Mrs. Horsburgh severing the happy &nbsp; connection she had so unselfishly &nbsp; established. On Sunday afternoon, July 5th, the parents and children of the' Acton School met at Acton Hall to express their regret at her depar ture. Mrs. Brackenreg, on behalf of the parents voiced the appreciation of parents and scholars of Mrs. Hors burgh's work for the children, and at the same time presented her with a silver card dish and shoe-horn. Mrs. Horsburgh feelingly replied and thanked the donors, and expressed the wish that the children would con - tinue to attend, and hoped the school would grow and flourish at Canberra.

BETTER AND BETTER Dependable ten years ago, and five years ago, and more dependable than ever to-day, Dodge Brothers &nbsp; Motor Car simply represents the latest phase in a process of continual betterment. The first cars Dodge Brothers built established a world- wide reputation. The cars they are building to-day incorporate the accumulated refinements of those ten intervening years. &nbsp; &nbsp; That important improvements in the comfort and appearance of the car are made from time to time, implies no basic departure from Dodge Brothers &nbsp; traditional policy of progressive rather than seasonal development. &nbsp; DODGE BROTHERS &nbsp; &nbsp; STANDARDISED MOTORS LIMITED &nbsp; &nbsp; 252 CASTLEREAGH STREET, SYDNEY &nbsp; &nbsp; ASSOCIATE DEALER W.

WITTY PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
WITTY PARS. It was in irrigated country. A political candidate was making a &nbsp; tour of the polling booths and re- ports of his supporters were en- couraging. He had just emerged &nbsp; from one of the booths when he saw a crowd awaiting him and they sur- rounded him and soon hoisted him shoulder high. "It is very good of you, gentle- &nbsp; men," said the delighted candidate; "but, really, I would much prefer to &nbsp; walk to my car." &nbsp; "Car!" roared the crowd. "Why, you're for the canal!" One of the officers on a battleship was annoyed by the untidy appear- ance of one of the midshipmen One fine morning the middy strolled past the wardroom wearing a collar that had seen better days. This was too much for the gold-braided officer. "Look here," he said, "you should &nbsp; not be wearing a dirty collar like that round your neck." "I assure you this collar was only washed &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ashore yeste...

POINTS OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
POINTS OF VIEW. A Womboyn River correspondent writing to the"Eden Magnet" says: &nbsp; "Tons of rain, two floods have occur- red recently, fattening the oysters, &nbsp; and making the land fit for the com- ing spring." This is optimism of the first water. Bairnsfather's "Old Bill" was a pessimist, compared with this Eden "silver-lining" opti- mist. Heard of a man who had both legs broken, breaking in a colt. A friend began sympathising with him, when the unlucky one said:—"A'int I lucky, 'e might 'ave knocked my eye out! "—Fact.
PITHY PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
PITHY PARS. It is hoped that the rainy season has passed. Wood supplies were &nbsp; eagerly sought by many, but teams could not go out on account of the sodden ground in the paddocks. Building operations are in full swing, Red Hill brick cottages, pri- &nbsp; vate business buildings are being pushed ahead at Eastlake. No. 2 Hostel is making quicker progress; the Secretariat and Parliament Buil- dings are making rapid strides and employing many workmen. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The main sewer has reached past Eastlake cotages and connecting sewers are in courses of construction on a large scale. &nbsp;
"THAT" ROAD AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
"THAT" ROAD AT LAST. The Main Roads Board of N.S.W. has come to the rescue of Queanbeyan Municipal Council and allotted £5000 to be expended on the road leading from the Federal Boundary (Railway Gates, Uriarra Road) to Monaro St., Queanbeyan. This road for months has been a bugbear to motorists and at night was, at certain points, posi- tively dangerous. Queanbeyan un- doubtedly owes its present prosperity to the development of Canberra and residents have received scant encour- agement by the Council in the way of a good road to go and do business in Queanbeyan. Canberra motorists, cyclists, and the various vehicle dri- vers thank the Main Roads Board and fervently hope the Council will speed on the work, and get rid of the present bone-shaking, nerve-wrack- ing apology for a road.
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
ITEMS OF INTEREST. Leo. O'Neill, District Secretary of the A.W.U. has just passed through a serious illness which laid him up for over a fortnight. He is about &nbsp; again, but is far from well, and has lost a good deal of weight during the struggle for recovery. Mr. Wm. Findlay, the popular Eastlake Tennis player, who has been ill for some weeks, and after return- ing from hospital resumed duties at the Stores Office, has, we are sorry to learn, been compelled to take to his bed again. He is now under the care of Dr. Clyde Findlay, of East- lake. His many friends wish him complete recovery. In the list of promotions in the N.S.W. Police force, the name of Constable P. J. Cook, of Molonglo Settlement, appears as Third-class &nbsp; Sergeant. Constable Cook's promo- tion will be recognised as well &nbsp; earned. Mr. John Deans, Builder and Con- tractor, finds ready demand for the cottages he is erecting on the twenty seven building sites he has for sale. The c...

BRICKWORK FINISHED AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
BRICKWORK FINISHED AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE. &nbsp; Tourists and others passing Par- liament House on Friday, July 10th, &nbsp; noticed a small specimen of a flag flying, from one of the chimneys in the kitchen block of the buildings and queried—Why? It indicated &nbsp; the brickwork of Australia's future Parliament House was laid. There is still a certain amount of interior brickwork to be finished—setting in, etc., but the brickwork to plans is an accomplished fact. Bricklayers found ready employment on the numerous buildings, departmental and private, in course of erection at different centres of our Capital City to be. &nbsp;
CRITICISM RESENTED. LIQUOR LICENSES FOR HOSTELS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
CRITICISM RESENTED. &nbsp; LIQUOR LICENSES FOR HOSTELS. Severe criticism was passed by &nbsp; members of the Federal Public Works Committee on the Director of the Victorian Anti-Liquor League, when a letter from Mr Finlayson was read before the committee, in which he protested against the recommendation made recently to the committe by Mr. J. S. Murdock, Commonwealth Architect, to the effect that, to enable the hostels at Canberra to cater more cheaply for prospective residents, it might be advisable to allow liquor licenses to be granted. &nbsp; The chairman, Mr. Gregory, M.P., resented the criticism of a public ser- vant who had been called before the committee to give evidence, especial- ly, he said, as Mr. Finlayson himself had previously been a member of the committee and knew how its business was conducted. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Matthews, M.P.: It is a most impertinent letter and makes unfair insinuations against a public offi...

The Federal Capital Pioneer. The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. JULY 20, 1925. ------------ SIR HENRY PARKES, K.C.M.G. THE FATHER OF FEDERATION. No. 4. The previous articles dealing with the life of this venerable statesman were noticed by Sir Joseph Carruth- ers, one of the three living members of Sir Henry's last Ministry. At a commemorative gathering to honour the birth of this leader of men, held in Sydney May 28th, 1923, Sir Joseph delivered an address which forcibly depicts the struggles and vicissitudes through which this sturdy democrat passed, and finally won his way, through sheer force of character, ability, and eloquence to the highest position in political life. We have &nbsp; received a brochure from his (then) young ministerial colleague and ap- &nbsp; preciate the offer "to use any matter contained in its pages" to help and stimulate recognition of this great leader of men the undoubted author of the Federation of Australian ...
