CANBERRA MALIGNED [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 June 1925

CANBERRA MALIGNED   An Anti-Canberra Melbourne     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   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   May, at 7.30 p.m., on the spare ground which it is ardently hoped the Government will grant for a   children's playground. A working   community effort would fix swings, etc. The ground is situated between   the cottages facing the Power House and the Eastlake Mess. A children's committee circularised the residents and Miss Grace Hays and Master   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.   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....

WITTY PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925

WITTY PARS. It was in irrigated country. A political candidate was making a   tour of the polling booths and re- ports of his supporters were en- couraging. He had just emerged   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-   men," said the delighted candidate; "but, really, I would much prefer to   walk to my car."   "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   not be wearing a dirty collar like that round your neck." "I assure you this collar was only washed       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:   "Tons of rain, two floods have occur- red recently, fattening the oysters,   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   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-   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.       The main sewer has reached past Eastlake cotages and connecting sewers are in courses of construction on a large scale.

"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. 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   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.

CRITICISM RESENTED. LIQUOR LICENSES FOR HOSTELS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925

CRITICISM RESENTED.   LIQUOR LICENSES FOR HOSTELS. Severe criticism was passed by   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.   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.       Mr. Matthews, M.P.: It is a most impertinent letter and makes unfair insinuations against a public offi...

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   received a brochure from his (then) young ministerial colleague and ap-   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 ...
