A CITY RAILWAY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

A CITY RAILWAY In one respect it has regretfully to be   admitted that Canberra is less favour- ably equipped than it was five years ago. Five years ago there was a City railway, and trains ran to Civic Centre. Looking at the city plan—the plan on which the development of the city is to be carried out—it is plain that city has a Civic Centre. The interpertation of the plan for the development of the city has kept up to the idea of Civic Centre, and to that end leases have been sold. The leases indeed are fast being developed. Within six months there will be firmly established in Civic Centre certain institutions and establishments   necessary for the further development and comfort of the city. Yet all this is being carried on, it would appear, on foundations which are generally provid- ed in most centres of development, but which in this case are not visible. People who come to Canberra, unless they study a city plan, may never real- ise that there is a Ci...

JERVIS BAY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

JERVIS BAY The report of Sir George Buchanan, the eminent English engineer, who was commissioned by the Commonwealth Government to report upon the harbour facilities of Australia last year, has been received.     Although he never visited Jervis Bay, Sir George says "it is capable of being made into a first-class harbour." He adds: "It has been suggested that Jer- vis Bay, with its fine harbour, should be the port of the Commonwealth Terri- tory. A port could be created there at a cost, but I see no prospect of a de- mand for a commercial inlet and outlet there." The Commonwealth Govern- ment might yet see the wisdom of de- veloping the Federal port, or possibly private enterprise will see possibilities that the expert cannot see. The last expert who made inspection of Jervis Bay reported, "there was no stone suit- able for breakwater purposes," whereas anyone who knows the country can vouch for the fact that there is an un- limited supply of sandstone in t...

CANBERRA'S RAILWAY EARLY CONSIDERATION IMPERATIVE MANY ALTERNATIVE ROUTES Immediate consideration by the Public Works Committee of railway communication with Canberra has become a matter of vital concern to the development of the city. Recently a survey was made of a proposed railway line on the northern side of the river at Canberra, but no announcement has been made regarding the intentions of the Department of Works and Railways in this connection. The question of a railway to connect Canberra with the main Southern line or by other routes to bring it into closer touch with Victoria will bear closer investigation to-day than hitherto, and there are now many more alternative routes to be considered. The latest route proposed is one through Orbost via Bombala to Canberra, which would be a national railway, in which the Commonwealth Government and the States of New South Wales and V[?]ria would be interested financially.

THE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

THE TREE. "I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree; A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;     A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair, Upon whose bosom snows have lain   Who intimately lives with rain, Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree." —By Joyce Wilmer.

The Cruiser Hindenburg. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

The Cruiser Hindenburg. It would be difficult to recognise in the hulk now being raised at Scapa the battle cruiser Hindenburg, once one of the smartest ships in the German fleet, now lying in a forest of seaweed and covered with barnacles. As in the case of the other ships scuttled seven years ago, the crew did everything possible to make difficult the task of refloating. This and other circum-   stances made many salvage experts sceptical that such big ships could be raised at all. One diver found in a cabin on board the Hindenburg several bottles of champagne. The cost of raising the German ships will, it is be- lieved, run into six figures.

PRESBYTERIAN FETE A Successful Function [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

PRESBYTERIAN FETE A Successful Function The Flower Fete and Sale of Goods in aid of the Canberra Presbyterian Church Funds, held in the Acton Hall and grounds on Saturday afternoon and evening last was a most successful func- tion. There was a large attendance in the afternoon, and doubtless would have attracted a similar number in the even- ing, but the weather was bleak and gusty. The fete was officially opened by Mr. J. H. Butters (Chief Commis- sioner) at 3 p.m. In wishing the organ- isers the success they deserved, Mr. Butters referred to the traditional story of the Scotch love of the "bawbees," and suggested that this story must have been started by the Scotsmen them- selves, as a joke or in self defence, be- cause, in his experience of the race, they were singularly open-hearted. After a survey of the stalls, Mr. Butters ex- cused himself on the plea that he had to attend another Scotch function, known as "Ye ancient game of golf." The display of flowers and shrubs was excel...

A TEDIOUS JOURNEY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

A TEDIOUS JOURNEY Some adequate idea of the hardships some of the outback settlers have to endure Is shown bv the recent unen- viable experience of Mrs. Murtagh, Dartella, which Is a valley about 50   miles up the Mitta River (Victoria). Mrs. Murtagh became seriously ill, ne- cessitating medical attention. As the valley cannot be reached by vehicle, she had to be carried out on a   stretcher. Volunteers were soon forth- coming. Some men and a woman from Mitta Mitta township, made an early start by motor lorry to Banimboola, being the farthest point the vehicle could go. They then hurried to Dar- tella, arriving at 11 a.m. Over the rough hill-country, the men, in turns, carried the stretcher, changing places while on the move. After three hours of strenuous work, they arrived at the motor-lorry, and then began a tedious journey, over rough country roads and tracks, to Mitta township, reaching there at 5 p.m. Thus a whole, day was spent, the long and tedious ...

The recent ton days' .reliability contest conducted by the Royal Automobile Club ] of Australia from Sydney to Coolan- gatta, Queensland, and return, a dis- tance of some 1300 miles, proved the most strenuous test ever conducted by an automobile club in Australia, testing j to the utmost the endurance of the l8 ears that competed.
