"FIJI, THE LAND OF PROMISE." [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

"FIJI, THE LAND OF PROMISE " - f This is the title of a recent book by^Sir Thomas Henley, M.L.A. It is a work that should be widely known, as Fiji a few days' distant from our shores has wonderful at- tractions for the tourist. Sir Thomas says: "It is clear to one that what the Riviera is to the colder zones, the islands of the South Pacific eventually will be to the Common- wealth of Australia." More knowledge of our island neighbors is necessary, and Sir Thomas has given a faithful picture of Fiji, its inhabitants, their customs and pursuits, as well as evidence of the need for commercial development. Ari elderly man of ultra convivial habits but withal learned and bookish, was haled before the Lar of Justice in 2 country town. "Yere charged with bein' drunk and disorderly," snapped the magistrate. "Have ye anything to say why sentence should not be pro- * nounced?" "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn,'* began the prisoner in a flight of oratory. "I am not so ...

THE BEST ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

THE BEST ROUTE. What is the best route from Victoria to Canberra f Those who have travelled to Can- berra by car advise that tourists should not attempt to negotiate alternative routes where roads are bad, but should travel via the Prince's Highway. This route has been chosen by organised motoring parties, and is regarded as the best. The Prince's Highway leads to Cann River, where the King's High- way is taken, and the route then leads through Bombala and Cooma to Canberra. »It is understood that definite areas have been selected at Ainslie on the Yass side and Eastlake on the Queanbeyan side of City Cir- cuit for parking purposes during the Royal visit. Visiting cars will not be allowed be- tween these areas and the administrative centre.

TRADE OF THE PRINCIPAL BRITISH PORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

TRADE OF THE PRINCIPAL BRITISH PORTS. In the light of Mr. Bruce's advocacy of de- centralised marketing in Great Britain with a view to reducing the "spread" between pro- ducer and consumer, it is of interest to note that the port of Manchester has again se- cured the third place in order of importance on the value of cargoes handled during 1925. The trade of various ports, as shown in the Board of Trade's annual statement, is as follows : London .. Liverpool Manchester Hull .... £745,425,872 579,680,083 115,647,548 115,083,167 There has been a steady growth of the value of cargoes entering and leaving the port of Manchester during the past five years. In 1921 the figure was £86.5 millions, the next year it rose to £92.0 millions, then to £94.1 in 1923, and up again to £114.6 in 1924, finally reaching £115.6 in 1925. This continued increase is more striking in view of the fall in values of many commodities since 1921. When it is remembered that the port of Manchester is relatively n...

NEW METHODIST CHURCH AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

NEW METHODIST CHURCH AT CANBERRA. Another historic church event took place on Wednesday, February 9th, when the founda- tion stone of the first. Methodist Church to be erected within the Federal city area was laid. The building will be of artistic design, in keeping with the dignity its position at South Ainslie warrants-with Mount Ainslie in the background and within bell sound of the old historic Church of England, the foundation stone of which was laid in 1841. The Rev. John W. Wheen, President-General of the Methodist Church, presided, and laid one of the stones-the second was officially declared well and truly laid by the Rev. H. A. Overead, B.A., President of the Victorian and Tas- manian Conference. The Revs. J. Vercoe (Canberra), and Evans (Queanbeyan), Bern brick, and Messrs. Colman, Southwell, Fal lick, Henry, Crapp, and others entertained visitors after the ceremony. Regret was ex- pressed at the absence of the veteran, Mr. John Gale.

Canberra's Great Loss [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

Canberra s Great Loss The citizens of Canberra were deeply moved when the news came through on Feb- ruary 24 of the sudden death, following an operation for appendicitis, of Mr. Clarence Hardie Gorman, colleague of Mr. J.. H. But- ters, C.M.G., and Sir John Harrison, Federal . Capital Commissioners. Tributes to áis sterling worth and character have already been published from Chief Commissioner Butters and Slr John Harrison. Proof, if any were necessary, of the popu- larity and esteem in which he was held by the official staff and ali classes of the community was evident at the memorial service held in Acton Hall on February 25, the same hour his body was laid to rest at South Head, Sydney. The Chief Commissioner journeyed to Sydney on receipt of the sad news, but expressed his desire for the service'to be held at Canberra. The staff attended, as well as representative residents of the Federal Territory, and many visitors, among: whom were the Hon. W. M. Hughes and Mr. Justice Fergu...

THE KING'S DESPATCH BOXES. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

THE KING'S DESPATCH BOXES. A London cable states that it is understood to be the King's intention to present to the Commonwealth despatch boxes similar to those which stand on the table in front of the Speaker's chair in the House of Commons. The boxes are to occupy a similar position on the table of the House of Representatives at Canberra. When the King expressed a wish to make a personal gift to the new Government build- ings, and suggested the despatch boxes, the offer was gladly accepted.

PARLIAMENT AT CANBERRA. Reopens on September 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

PARLIAMENT AT CANBERRA. Reopens on September 28. Although the Federal Parliament, when opened by His Royal Highness the Duke of York on May 9, will remain in session at Canberra for no longer than one day, the Ministry has arranged for the reopening of Parliament at the Federal Capital on Septem- ber 28, and the transfer of departmental staffs to Canberra will be carried out accordingly. The transfer will begin on August 1, and by the end of September every branch of the Federal service will be represented at Can- berra either by the complete central adminis- trative staff or by secretariats of sufficient numerical strength to cope with a busy session of Parliament. Three departments will be transferred in their entirety at once. At the same time eight secretariats will be moved. The permanent heads of departments will be included in the initial transfer, and therefore by the end of September the activities of the Common- wealth will be directed from Canberra. The Federal Cabinet, t...

THE CANBERRA STAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

THE CANBERRA STAMP. An air of mystery is being preserved by the Postal Department round the special postage stamp which it proposes to issue in order to commemorate the opening of Parlia- ment at Canberra. The dies are ready for the printing of the stamps, and, in fact, some of the stamps already have been printed, but be- yond a statement that the design is an attrac- tive one, the postal authorities will give no information concerning the appearance of the stamp. The idea behind this veil of secrecy is that an element of surprise will add to the interest which will be created by the issue of the stamp. The present intention of the de- partment is to issue the special stamp for one week, beginning on the day of the opening ceremony. Resentment at statements doubting the ability of shopkeepers to meet the demands of visitors during the visit of the Duke and Duchess of York has been expressed by busi- ness people at Eastlake. They say that they are quite capable of catering for the l...

CANBERRA RACING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

CANBERRA RACING CLUB. Placing on record the resuscitation of a racing club at Canberra is worthy of note, because the club has started out to run this sport on clean lines. The first meeting was held on Saturday afternoon, February 12th, under ideal condi- tions. The Federal Commissioners extended their patronage, and a large concourse wit- nessed the races. The membership roll grew rapidly prior to the meeting, which was re- presentative of all classes in the Federal Territory and the surrounding distinct. The following officials are responsible for the success of organising and placing the Canberra Racing Club on a sound footing: President, Mr. J. Arbuckle; vice-presidents, Dr. Clyde Finlay and Mr. H. Adams; trea- surer, Mr. J. Force; secretary, Mr. J. Bryan; assistant secretary, Mr. W. Gray; committee, Messrs. J. Waldron, S. Southwell, R. Kiely, M. Cavanagh, R. Reid, E. Scott, C. Chalker, E.

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. "T.C." (no address given).-Every number except the first. "Chaucer."-You have chosen a high classi- cal name for such a query. The text is: "True patriots all! for be it understood, We left our country for our country's good," This couplet is from the prologue which was delivered on the occasion of the opening of the first theatre in Australia-The Prince of Wales Theatre, in Pitt Street, Sydney, about the spot where the Strand Arcade now stands; it was destroyed by fire over half a century ago. The lines were composed by George Barrington, a clever pickpocket from London, whose activities in this line earned him a free trip to Botany Bay.

The Late Mr. C. H. Gorman AN APPRECIATION, BY C. B. BYRNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

The Late Mr. C. H. Gorman AN APPRECIATION, BY C. B. BYRNE. To the community of Canberra an oppor- tunity occurred during the last two years or so of becoming acquainted and forming a friendship with the late C. H. Gorman; and I venture to say that the sad event of his death has removed a man, who many of you counted as one of your best friends, and quickly recognised as one to admire and re- spect. Clarence Hardie Gorman. May I be permitted to say a few words in memoriam? Clarence and I were boys together at Rand- wick in the school-days. When he left col- lege he went to Mildura, Victoria, and subse- quently resided for many years on the Northern Rivers, occupying a position under the . N^SiW. Government. Meanwhile when I left school I became junior clerk in his father's office (Hardie & Gorman). In the year 1907 Clarence came back to Sydney and joined the office staff, thus continuing our boyhood friendship. We worked together as clerks in the office until the year 1910, w...

CONGRATULATIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

CONGRATULATIONS To Messrs. W. Freebody (captain), M. Crowe, N, Ridley, and J. Ridley for their meritorious win at the N.S.W. Country Ten- nis Carnival, held in S'ydney from the 11th to 24th January. When consideration is given to the fact that ninety-six teams competed for the vari- ous champion events, the winning of the champion team match by these tennis en- thusiasts, entered as "The Canberra Team" is a cause for sincere congratulation. The team were entertained by the Canberra and Quean- beyan Tennis Clubs, at a complimentary din- ner at Hotel Canberra on Friday, February 11th, and were royally toasted and feted. Tennis has lost a warm supporter through the sudden death of Commissioner C. H. Gorman. He donated the first cup for tennis at Canberra. One of the visiting prelates at Canberra the other morning inquired of a man if he was a resident of Canberra. "Nb," he re- plied, "I am an exile from Melbourne." The prelate would have been justified in advising this dismal being to ...

RADIO AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 24 February 1927

RADIO AT CANBERRA. An interesting suggestion is being placed before the Royal Commission appointed by the Commonwealth Government to investigate radio, and it has a distinct bearing upon Can- berra development and should have best of encouragement. It has been submitted to the Commission by Mr. George A. Taylor, presi- dent of the Association for Developing Wire- less in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, and is that the Federal Government should, under the new system of scientific research» establish a Radio Research Bureau at Canberra. A suggestion was placed before the Wire- less Institute recently by Professor Madsen, of the Sydney University, that a sum of money should be placed with the University of Syd- ney for a Radio Research Bureau. It is hoped that the Federal Government will not consider that suggestion. The establishing of a Radio Research Bureau is a Commonwealth matter, for, if Commonwealth funds go to any particular State University for that purpose, OK any other purp...
