LINK WITH DICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
LINK WITH DICKENS. An interesting link with Dickens is recalled by the British Board of Edu- cation's proposal to establish a scheme for the administration of the Delaforce Educational Foundation in the Parish of St. George the Martyr. The founder of this charity, Samuel Delaforce, left £3000, of which the interest was to be applied for the benefit of the poor of the parish, including those in St. George's Workhouse, Mint Street, Bor- ough. This institution, then called the Poor House, as such was the home of Oliver Twist, and within its walls on a famous occasion he "asked for more." The copper from which the gruel was ladled into Olivers' basin is still in the possession of the borough council. The Dickens association is strengthened by &nbsp; &nbsp; the fact that he lived at one time in Lant Street, which is within a few yards oi' the Church of St. George the Martyr. Arid it was in the vestry of that church that he allowed Little Dorrti to rest one night.

ARMISTICE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
ARMISTICE DAY. Eight ycart, have not dimmed the memories of that day in 1!)18 when there was a cessation of the battle thun- der on the far flung battlefields. Still vivid in the minds of the people is the joy with which the news was received that the end was at hand to the long years of war. More vivjd .are the recol- lections of the men on the battlefields of their feeling's on that day when u long shrijl whistle bude them cease fire, and an uncanny silonce gave place momen- tarily to the five year long cannonades. Behind them were years of achievement, but bitter years because the achieve- ment was not always apparent, and was ?realised only on that last fateful day, but it is seen clearly by- history in its cold survey of a series of va.st cam- paigns. But while these recollections aro in the minds of men particularly luring the several days in the calendar an which the Great War is recalled to Australians, it is not those thoughts which are uppermost. There wore many silent wlt...

INCIPIENT RIOT On Saturday afternoon last, In Queanbeyan, a street brawl arose out of the arrest by the local police of a man for riotous conduct. At one stage over 350 persons surged into Monaro Street, and only the firmness and de termination of' the police checked a &nbsp; riot. A portion of the crowd was in an angry mood, and for 15 minutes all Street traffic was stopped. Sergeant Hargrave and Constables, Brlck and &nbsp; Shaw, assisted by Sergeant Cook, of Molongio, managed, to quieten the more turbulent of the crowd, and the others gradually dispersed.

BUSH FIRE OUTBREAK NEAR CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 11 November 1926
BUSH FIRE OUTBREAK NEAR CANBERRA 'The first fire this season near Can- berra broke out late on Wednesday be- hind Black Mountain, near the Weentan- gera road. The outbreak was reported promptly to the forestry officials, who are coping with the outbreak. The increasing dryness of the district, and the advent of summer, are increas- ing the danger of fires, and special precautions are necessary to prevent outbreaks. The question of providing patrols to prevent the spreading of any fires which may break out during the summer is receiving attention, but an ounce of &nbsp; precaution is better than an army of firefighters, and observance of the ordinances relating to the prevention of fires is essential.
