SOLDIERS' CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
SOLDIERS' CHILDREN The. Sir Samuel McCaughey be- quest for the technical education of soldiers' children has reached com- &nbsp; mendable figures. A total of 2,685 children had already received, or were receiving assistance for techni- cal training in trades, professions, and business occupations. Assistance includes school fees, books, fares, rewards for efficiency, and in a num- her of cases maintenance allowance. A report of the trustees shows in detail the various classes of train- ing. Thirty-eight students were en- rolled at Universities, 96 at Agri- cultural Colleges, the remainder be- ing engaged in trade training or commercial courses. Assistance was limited to the children of deceased or totally disabled soldiers, and was for the purpose of their technical &nbsp; training in some skilled occupation as a means of livelihood in the future.
MASTER BUILDERS' ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
MASTER BUILDERS' ASSOCIATION Another evidence of the progress of Canberra, and one of historic sig- nificance, was the meeting of Master Builders at the Hotel Canberra on the evening of 18th of August. Mr. John Deans, the builder of the first private residences on the Federal Territory erected on blocks sold at the first auction of land on the Ter- ritory, Dec. 12th, 1924, occupied the chair, and among those present were Messrs Mason, Eggleston, Chapman, MacDonald, Walker, Paynter, Mc- Carthy, Paynter, jun., and Gildea. Mr. Deans, in a short address, outlined the object of the meeting. Mr McCarthy proposed, and Mr. Mason seconded, a resolution to form a Master Builders' Association on the Federal Capital Territory. The following were elected office- bearers: President, Mr. John Deans; Vice-President, Colonel Walker; Secretary and Treausrer, Mr. W. G. Gildea; Auditors, Messrs. Chapman, and McCarthy; Executive Committee, Messrs. Mason, McCarthy, Paynter; Bank, Commonwealth Bank, Can- ...
PLANT A FRUIT TREE [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
PLANT A FRUIT TREE There is not a garden plot among all the permanent cottages erected by the Government for employees, in which at least two fruit trees could be planted. One miserly indivi- didual remarked only a few days ago, "Why should I plant fruit trees;, I might not be here to eat them?" The answer he received, was, "Someone planted the trees from which you enjoy fruit to-day." If each householder planted only two trees there would be fruit at season- able times for the children of the Territory for treats or picnics. Get Afforestation Officer Weston's advice and plant a tree or two. Beauty as well as utility will be the result of your efforts. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925

The cause is a good one, and our readers are asked to book the dates.

"DUNTROON," North Otago, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
"DUNTROON," &nbsp; North Otago, N.Z. Many influential and observant tourists are finding "Canberra" a &nbsp; necessary place of call, and many are now remarking its beauty, wealth of undulating and mountain scenery, and bracing climate, are better val- ued as visits are repeated. Among those who have found the Federal Capital Territory a place of interest, and spoke highly of the fine appointments for tourists at The Hotel Canberra, were Mr. and Mrs. S. G. Raymond, of Christchurch, New Zealand. Mr. Raymond is the well- known and esteemed veteran King's Counsel of Christchurch. As a bar- &nbsp; rister his keen, legal mind is also a storehouse of historic data on Do- minion matters. In the course of &nbsp; &nbsp; an interview with the Editor, the name of Duntroon Military College &nbsp; came up and mention was made of the founders early in the 18th cen- tury—Messrs. Robert and John &nbsp; Campbell. Mr. Raymond at once caught the ...
CANBERRA RAILWAY CONNECTION [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
CANBERRA RAILWAY CONNECTION One of the most important essen- tials for the progress, development, and settlement on Canberra is direct rail communication with Melbourne and the opening up of a seaboard. "The Wagga-Junee to Canberra Rail- way League" quickly followed the wake of "The Tumut League" in placing before Minister for Works Flannery (N.S.W.) the superior ad- vantages their route to Canberra would have over the proposed Tu mut route. Last issue we reported the result of the Tumut delegation. N.S.W. for its own financial benefit, &nbsp; if nothing else, should connect the Federal Capital with some point on its southern line. New country would be opened up, and, without question, the line would pay. Activities at Canberra have already made the Canberra-Goulburn line a very pro- fitable investment for N.S.W. On &nbsp; the other hand, a line opened up to Jervis Bay, which has a harbour for berthing purposes equal to Sydney Harbour, and to my mind, the na- tural s...
CANBERRA'S COLOUR SCHEME [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
CANBERRA'S COLOUR SCHEME Giving evidence before the Federal Works Committee at its recent sit- ting, the President of the Victorian Institute of Architects, Mr. P. B. Hudson, gave it as his opinion that Canberra should be a "White" City. All buildings should be faced as far as possible with light coloured buiid- ing material. He recommended &nbsp; &nbsp; Stawell freestone, but said the best would be terra cotta as the Austra- &nbsp; lian terra cotta would more than favourably compare with the im- &nbsp; ported article. He also would prefer polished granite or trachite for the base of future offices of administra- tion and reinforced concrete for the main buildinig. Canberra ladies have at times felt &nbsp; &nbsp; the need of a dressmaker in the Territory, one who would be pre- pared to go to their homes. See Miss Todd's advt. &nbsp;
CANBERRA HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
CANBERRA HORTICUL- &nbsp; &nbsp; TURAL SOCIETY Gardening enthusiasts at Canberra met at Acton Hall on Tuesday, 6th Oct., for the purpose of forming a Horticultural Society. Mr. C. H. Gorman, one of the Federal Capital Commissioners, was invited to pre- side, and in his opening address, stated the Commissioners were &nbsp; thoroughly in sympathy with the object of the meeting and assured them they would have every assist- ance, within reason, it was possible to give. The meeting decided on the name of "Canberra Horticultural Society," as embracing the work of those present. The election of off- cers took place and the following were unaminously elected:— Presi- dent, C. H. Gorman, Esq.; Vice-presi- dents, Messrs. C. W. Weston, P. L. Sheaffe, and A. K. Murray; Secre- tary, Mr. J. McR. Dunne; Treasurer, Mr. C. Murden; Committee, Mrs. Brackenreg, Messrs. H. Martin, C. May, T. Butler, C. Francis, and J. P. Hobday. It was decided to have monthly general meetings an...
The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. OCTOBER 20, 1925 CANBERRA MEDICAL BENEFIT SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. &nbsp; &nbsp; OCTOBER 20, 1925 CANBERRA MEDICAL &nbsp; BENEFIT SCHEME In a recent issue of "The Pioneer" we published a state- ment concerning the deadlock on the above scheme through the autocratic decision of the B.M.A. Since then, we learn the true facts concerning the rejection of the first scheme were not placed before the audience at the inaugural meeting of the Welfare Asso- ciation under the presidency of Mr. Butters, Commissioner; also, many present were recent arrivals on the Federal Terri- tory and naturally unaware of the emphatic rejection of that medical scheme by a most re- presentative gathering of all classes of the community. The "Community News" refers to its rejection, attributing the reason mainly to "mileage clauses." Space prevents dealing with all the objectionable clauses which employees found they could not accept. One of the chief objections to...

THE MONTH'S PROGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
THE MONTH'S PROGRESS Since our last issue the progress of the Commission's works pro- gramme has been steadily main- tained, and there appears to be no reason why the objective of June, 1926, should not be attained. It is perhaps not generally realised, how stupendous is the task which confronts the Commission. Not only is the constructional programme &nbsp; upon which it is engaged substantial, but much of it requires to be com- pleted simultaneously, and the re- sultant pressure upon the resources of staff and material at the disposal of the authorities is heavy. It is difficult within the space at our disposal to set out in detail the progress made in individual build- ings. In our last issue readers were given a fairly comprehensive de- tailed outline of the stage to which the several major buildings had then advanced. In this issue we may ad- vise generally that Parliament House is progressing steadily. The brick- work is finished, the flooring is also completed, with t...
R.S. & S.I. LEAGUE, DUNTROON SUB-BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
R.S. & S.I. LEAGUE, DUNTROON SUB-BRANCH. A highly successful smoke concert was held in the Duntroon Amusement Hall on Friday, August 14th, under the auspices of the Duntroon Sub- branch of the R.S. & S.I.L. of Aus- tralia. Amongst those contributing to the programme were Messrs. Han- cock, Lodge, Paynting, Lee, Traynor, Rundell, W. O. Chumleigh, The Three Digs, and Edwards' Jazz Orchestra. During the interval occasion was made to present to the President, Lt.-Col. Plant, a gold-mounted walk- ing stick, and to the late president, Mr. E. G. Crace, a tea service. Col. Plant, in acknowledging the &nbsp; gift, congratulated the members of the sub-branch on sticking to the League in the way they had done, especially as the branch, being in the Federal Territory, did not share in the same benefits as the State bran- ches. He urged the members to help and continue the good work of the League. Col. Plant is shortly leaving Duntroon for India. Ex-President Crace also s...
CANBERRA. SPECIAL ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
CANBERRA. SPECIAL ARTICLE. &nbsp; There exist quite a number of fac- tors which have an important bear- ing on the future of Canberra and which will tend to help in that pro- gress which is sure to come to the place which is destined to be the first City in Australia. Firstly of course, the establishing of the Federal Parliament, bringing with it as time goes on an ever increasing number of public servants —and ever-increasing this number must be. This young nation of our's must and will attract population and with a vast country full of natural wealth only waiting to be exploited and developed by that increased po- pulation the day will come, probably suddenly and soon, when the influx of desirable immigrants cannot be prevented. They will arrive, become absorbed and in the ordinary course of events themselves help to swell the already increasing population. &nbsp; This in itself means larger and more public departments. &nbsp; As the City becomes establishe...
