CANBERRA. Australia's National Development. SPECIAL ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
CANBERRA Australia's National Development. SPECIAL ARTICLE. A visit to Canberra, which is rapidly gaining definite proportions would convince the most sceptical &nbsp; critic that the future of this wonder city is assured and established. With the population of Sydney now officially disclosed to exceed 1,000,000 and estimated to be 2,500- 000 by 1950 Australians should feel a justifiable pride in the fact that their country, in the eyes of the world, is to be now regarded with national importance. The necessity for a Federal Capi- tal is therefore obvious and we are to be congratulated upon the choice of site and the progress now evident. With an elevation of 2,000 feet above sea level, naturally beautiful surroundings and that ideal port &nbsp; Jervis Bay, the obvious link with the overseas world, nature has been bountiful with her favors. Climati- cally Canberra is well nigh perfect and as a tourist resort must ulti- mately take pride of place. &nbsp; The t...

ART UNION DEFAULTER. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
ART UNION DEFAULTER. The recurrence of swindles by art union "Promoters" compels many to refrain from buying tickets in legiti- mate charitable movements. A N.S. Wales official connected with the "Help the Consumptives Art Union" played a contemptible part. The &nbsp; culprit, George H. Wheeler, secre- tary, was arrested and charged with stealing £400. He placed unsold tickets in the drawing, and sold the prizes, robbing consumptives.
MOTOR ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
MOTOR ACCIDENT. Mr. T. D. Murdoch of the Accounts Office, Acton, walking with a friend &nbsp; on the right side of the road between Eastlake Mess and the Post Office, was struck by a motor-truck which swerved suddenly, although there was a clear road. It struck him on his side lifting him off his feet, his head struck the bonnet, inflicting a scalp wound and then he was thrown to the left side of the road. The Federal Ambulance was remarkably quick on the scene and conveyed him to Canberra Hospital. Dr. Edwards &nbsp; was called in; it was feared that concusion of the brain might &nbsp; develop, but this was diverted. Dr. &nbsp; Edwards and the hospital staff were in close attendance until the stage was reached, when, except for the &nbsp; pain in the side and the shock, Mr. Murdoch was able to leave the hos- pital.
FORTY-FOUR HOURS FOR BUILDING TRADES AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 July 1925
FORTY-FOUR HOURS FOR BUILD- ING TRADEIS AT CANBERRA. &nbsp; Employees in the building trades at Canberra, after sectional meetings, approached the Commissioner with a request that the 44 hours might be worked in five days—no work on Saturdays. Mr. Butters (Commis- sioner) informed them that if they took a vote on the question the Com- mission would consent to a majority favourable vote. The vote resulted in favor of no Saturday work, which meant the five-day hours would be eight hours forty-eight minutes. The new time-table came in on, Tuesday, July 7th, which meant an alteration in the running of the workmen's train. Official notification was sent to all foremen advising them that the following alterations in train service would be made as from July 7th. &nbsp; Train leaves Queanbeyan, 6.35 a.m. Molonglo, 6.50 a.m. Arrives Canberra, 7.5 a.m. Leaves Canberra, 5.25. p.m. Leaves Molonglo, 5.38 p.m. Arrives Queanbeyan, 5.50 p.m.

THE DAVIS CUP AUSTRALIA'S PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
THE DAVIS CUP AUSTRALIA'S PROSPECTS. (By "Play Fair." Tennis players throughout Austra- lia are anxiously awaiting the final stages of the Davis Cup, and seeing that our star performer, J. O. An- derson, has already been defeated de- cisively by Rene Lacoste of France and Vincent Richards of U.S., many keen judges are anticipating grave doubt as to whether the Australian team will oppose the Americans in the final. From past performances, there ap- pears to be no doubt that the semi- final will again be fought between France and Australia, and to me there is a serious possibility of our boys going under. We must not be discouraged by the recent defeats of our players, nor must we lose sight of the very no- &nbsp; ticeable improvement in the French players. Patterson and Anderson on whom we will depend in the singles, are certainly not improved players, they are not playing as well now as in 1923 and 1924. To me Anderson is a long way below his 1923 form, and the recent defea...

CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
CANBERRA Woodgers and Calthorpe report a good demand for Canberra building sites and have recently completed the sale of the balance of the busi- ness sites at Civic Centre and about thirty residential blocks at Ainslie. Buyers of the latter include Mr. John Deans, of Canberra, who has closed for a block of 17 lots for the build- ing of cottages to suit artisans, etc. The Commission is developing the balance of Ainslie and have started on a fresh block of cottages there. We understand that they are also developing a part of the area re- served for Minor Industries in the same locality. The present position is that there are still some good resi- dential sites available at "Redhill" and "Blandfordia" and about half a dozen residential blocks at Ainslie. The sale of these will complete the whole of the subdivision offered for auction.
THE SEAMEN'S STRIKE FIASCO WALSH, JOHANSEN, AND GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
THE SEAMEN'S STRIKE FIASCO WALSH, JOHANSEN, AND GARDEN. The seamen's strike has ended and the objective of the above reactionary trio—"job control"—was not gained. Those who spent years in agitating for Arbitration versus Strikes, and won, in spite of the combined oppo- sition of the leaders of the employ- ing class and financial magnates, re- ceived a blow when they read Tom Walsh's declaration demanding the de-registration of the Seamen's Union. Judge Power pointed out the enormous responsibility Walsh was so glibly assuming, but he meant to wreck arbitration, and replied, "I take full responsibility." The strike is over; the seamen, their wives and children have suffered more than the steamship owners, and their gain has been no more, but less, than could have been gained by the less drastic road—Arbitration. Striking is a boomerang weapon, it comes back to the thrower, nine times out of ten, and hurts him more than the object aimed at. Premier Lang, of N.S.W., to his credit, gra...
ITEMS OF INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
ITEMS OF INTEREST Burns Club Soccer team helped to advertise Canberra. They journeyed to Sydney and played Cronulla and won by 9 goals to 1. It is hoped that a movement to inaugurate a Horticultural Society will meet with success to encourage amateur gardeners and help beautify each residential centre. The "White Sister Ball" held at Queanbeyan was a pronounced suc- cess. Canberra residents responded well. Already the Treasurer has £134 towards the Hospital fund as a result of the ball. Canberra Australian Rules football team visiting Sydney were honored by a civic welcome at the invitation of Lord Mayor Stokes. Constable T. Foster, from Cooma, has taken up duties, and is domiciled at Eastlake. Messrs. Woodgers and Calthorpe announce all business sites sold at Canberra on present plans. Canberra no longer has only one representative of "law and order." With the increase of population and traffic on the roads more than dou- bled, and "road-hogs" growing more numerous and reckless, Ca...
The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. AUGUST 20, 1925. JAPAN'S WARLIKE PREPARATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
The Federal Capital Pioneer. The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. AUGUST 20, 1925. JAPAN'S WARLIKE PREPARATIONS Many will recall the two visits of Japanese worships to our Common- &nbsp; wealth. In the streets of the Capi- tals of each State, Japanese sailors, in twos and threes, could be seen notebook and guide-map in hand picking out their way often without questioning a passerby. Press com- ments were made of their abuse of privileges when proof was at hand that they were surrepticiously taking soundings of our habors, photos of our defences, and without doubt the distances of capital cities from the sea-board. Two or three years ago the Japanese pearlers at Broome, Western Australia, who for some time had assumed an hostile attitude to the Australian residents, under pretext of some domestic squabble with Malay pearlers there, practically took possession of the town and marched over one thousand strong through the main thoroughfare, armed with sti...
FANCY DRESS BALL AT CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
FANCY DRESS BALL AT CANBERRA The spacious ballroom at the Hotel Canberra was a brilliant scene on Friday evening last, with a taste- fully aranged orchestral stand, in the centre, and multi-colored streamers, from which gay balloons were swinging as they hung from the ceil- ing, and the artistic effect of the variety of costumes worn by the &nbsp; company as they gracefully circled in the ballroom, to the music of the "Stromberra" Orchestra was a scene equal to any similar function organised in the State Capitals. As over 250 tickets were sold by the committee and many paid as they entered, the result financially will reach the object aimed at, vis:—a new organ for Canberra's Historic Church at Ainslie. The committee are to be congratulated on the suc- cess achieved, there was not a hitch to mar the pleasure of patrons from start to finish, although, at times, the floor was fairly crowded with dancers. The vestibule leading into the ball- room as well as the verandahs on eac...
VICE-REGAL PARTY AND AMERICAN OFFICERS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
VICE-REGAL PARTY AND AMERICAN OFFICERS The Governor of N.S.W., Admiral Sir Dudley De Chair, Lady De Chair, and Miss Elaine De Chair, accom- panied by a few officers from the American Fleet, paid a hurried visit to Canberra on their way from Kos- ciusko to Sydney. Admiral Robinson in command of the visiting Fleet sec- tion to N.S.W., was one of the party to Kosciusko and fully intended com- ing on to Canberra, but the exigen- cies of Naval service compelled him to return to Sydney. The party were motored round the Federal Capital and shown every point of interest, including an inspec- tion of Parliament House in course of construction, and a visit to the Public School where they were very much interested in the large num- &nbsp; ber of children attending. &nbsp; After the visit to the school the party drove to the Hotel Canberra, where, as guests of the Commission- ers, they had luncheon. Among those present to welcome the party at lun- cheon were Mr. and Mrs. J. Butt...
MICHELAGO MARBLE [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1925
MICHELAGO MARBLE Almost at the threshold of Federal Capital Territory we have undeve- loped wealth, needing only publicity and Government support to lay the foundation of a profitable and na- tional industry. Within 30 miles of Canberra, at Michelago, there is a large deposit of magnificent marble, equal to the best Carrara marble im- ported from Italy. It is only one and a half miles from Michelago Railway Station, adjacent to the property of Sir Granville Ryrie. The question of encouraging the development of this industry was brought before the &nbsp; Federal Parliament last year when there was a discussion on the need for an adequate Tariff protection for the Australian marble industry to enable it to compete successfully with Italian marble. Mr. Forde (Capricorna) said:— Every year Australia sends away £60,000 to Italy to purchase marble, which is imported chiefly in the form of sawn slabs, despite the fact that in Central Queensland alone there are in sight 18,000,000 t...
