(Published by arrangement.) THE REAL INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
(Published by arrangement.) THE REAL INTE3MPERANCE. "Temperance" was the subject of a sermon by the Rev. Dr. Randolph Ray, rector of the Church of the Transfiguration," reports a recent issue of the "Times" (New York). "We Americans more than any other people have the dangerous habit of going off at a target,'. he said, "setting one thing as a fetish high above all others while the re maining worth-while things of life go on neglected. The result is a life lacking balance; the solution is the introduction of intemperance. "Prohibition is an example, . with adherents trying to make a moral issue of the use of wines and liquors and seeking to meet the problem of misuse by forbidding any use at all. That type of intemperance-for the Prohibition law is a form of intem perance-has constantly marked the life of America." "Dr. Ray," continues the "Times" report, "saw a great potential dan ger to youth of the present day in the fact that the nation realises the Prohibition law is improper a...

FAIRY MEADOW LIMESTONE FOR FEDERAL CAPITAL [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926
FAIRY MEADOW LIME .. STONE ' ,I FOR FEDERAL CAPITAL Expert geological evidence before the Federal Public Works Committee shows the likelihood of limestone de posits at Fairy Meadow, 30 miles fromn Canberra, being tested for the con struction of the permanent administra tive buildings at the Federal Capital. Mr. D. G. Mahoney, of the general survey branch, told the committee that he had inspeeted limestone deposits at Fairy Meadow, and made a very con servative estimate that there were 3,000,000 tons of stone there. In prac tice, however, •that: figure might ,be easily doubted. He. thought that it would be possible to quarry ,blocks large enough for building purposes. Chrystaline limestone, such as at Fairy Meadow, would wear uniformly. Witness stated that it would be ad visable to sink shafts to ascertain how deep were the foundations. Me also favored opening up Fairy Meadow quarry before it was decided to use limestone. If several faces were opened up it would be possible to tell-i...
