CANBERRA'S LIQUOR ORDINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

CANBERRAS LIQUOR ORDINANCE. The liquor ordinance in force at Canberra is condemned in the annual report of the Federal Capital Commission, which was placed on the table of the House of Represen- tatives recently. The report states that, as no restriction was placed, upon the volume of liquor which could be brought into the Federal Territory, many persons purchased more than they needed. This had of ten conduced to im-r moderate indulgence, and sometimes to seri- ous consequences, particularly in the large camps. "Within nine miles of Canberra there are a number of hotels," adds the report, "and the effect of no-license in the territory has been the development of a bar trade at those hotels. The large weekly, and even daily, exodus from the territory to Queanbeyan has resulted in the taking away of, a great deal of shopping business, which otherwise would have been transacted in the territory. As a result of two years' observation, the Com- mission has come to the conclusion that th...

PARLIAMENT HOUSE, CANBERRA. Artistic Furnishing. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

PARLIAMENT HOUSE, CANBERRA. Artistic Furnishing. Visitors from all parts of the Common- wealth to Parliament House have expressed their admiration at the high standard reached in the furnishings, regarding the work as evidence of fine taste and a credit to Austra- lian craftsmen. Each piece is of distinctive style, and the timbers used Australian. The designer, Mr. L. Taylor, deserves credit for the artistic effect produced; beauty, combined with comfort, being the dominant feature. The principal timbers used are blackwood, maple, silky oak and cedar-each State get- ting its quota. The aim throughout has been to use everything, where possible, of Austra- lian origin, produced in Australia, failing that of British manufacture. This scheme is carried out even in the upholstery. Particularly striking are the tables in the Senate clubroom; the tops are hexagon in shape, with twelve columns clustered around a central trunk. In the library stands an- other fine circular table, nine feet i...

Visits of Royal Princes to Australia [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

Visits of Royal Princes to Australia BY CAPTAIN J. H. WATSON. President Royal Australian Histoxical Society. Apropos of the approaching visit of His Royal Highness the Duke of York to Can- berra, it may interest readers of The Federal Capital Pioneer to learn something of former visits of Princes of the Royal blood who have been here, written by one who has taken an humble part in some ceremony, in which each one of them was officially present. And the writer may be pardoned for mentioning here that he also "presented arms" to Edward, Prince of Wales (grandfather of the present Duke of York) who with Alexandra, Princess of Denmark, made the Royal entry and pro- gress through London on March 7, 1863, pre- vious to their marriage at Windsor on March 10th. The first Prince to visit Australia was Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, a brother of the above Edward, Prince of Wales and later King Edward VII. Prince Alfred, fourth child of Queen Victoria, was born August 6th, 1844, entered the...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS T. C. :-The Latin inscriptions on the Speaker's Chair in the House of Represen- tatives translated are: (1) . The hand that deals justly is a sweet smelling ointment, (2) . A heedful and faithful mind is con- scious of righteousness. (3) . Justice is influenced neither by en- treaties nor gifts. (4) . Liberty lies in the law. Envy is the enemy of honor. Praise be to God. "Voter":-Incorrect. Canberra citizens have no direct representative in the Federal Parliament. We have no vote-therefore, no member-I quite agree that in submitting to laws we should have a voice in their mak- ing. "Ainslie" :-The corroboree ground contro- versy is of ancient date. Anyone acquainted with the habits of aborigines would acknow- ledge that the site mentioned would be an ideal spot and one likely to be chosen bv the early blacks of "Pialago," as "Duntroon" was named.

The Visit of Royalty to Canberra The eyes of the world, metaphorically speaking, 'frill be on Canberra during the next few weeks. As mentioned in a former issue, Canberra has at last come into tts own. In- dependent of the glittering splendor of the many uniforms, military and naval; the thousands of cars parked in ample spaces; ihe beflagged thoroughfares; the music of massed bands; the stately entry of their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of York; the cavalcade leading them through ^avenues of cheering crowds; the tumultuous bum of expectant visitors from all parts of the globe until the Royal party reaches the portals of the great white building to of- ficially open which they have journeyed from the Northern Hemisphere, seeing sights at all places of call which only those of Royal rank are privileged to see,-independent of all this, Canberra mil show something morel Those who have not previously visited Can- berra will see a sight that will compel ad- miration.

A MYSTERIOUS DISEASE, [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

A MYSTERIOUS DISEASE, There is a mysterious disease among horses in the North-west of Western Australia known as "walk about." The disease affected ani- mals walk about without grazing until they come to an obstacle, like a fence or a tree, and there they stand until they die. To investigate the disease for the Common- wealth Government, Professor A. J. Ewart, Professor of Botany in the Melbourne Univer- sity, and formerly Government Botanist of Victoria, will leave Melbourne early in April. The two new Australian cruisers, the "Australia" and the "Canberra," each 10,000 tons are to be completed and commissioned with a complement of men from the Royal Australian Navy in February, 1928.

CANBERRA C. OF E. GIRLS' GRAMMAR SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

CANBERRA G. OF & GIRLS' GRAMMAR SCHOOL. A Church of England Girls' Grammar School has been established at Ainslie, Can- berra. The Bishop of Goulburn, Dr. Rad- ford, thus refers to the position in the Southern Churchman: "Last December I succeeded in persuading the directors of the Monaro Grammar School to decide to remove the school to Canberra, and the shareholders in January consented, on condition that no financial liability was in- curred until, in the opinion of the directors, there was a sufficient response to an appeal for fresh capital. The headmaster and I have selected a site of 15 acres at Canberra, and have formed the nucleus of a committee of churchmen, in Sydney in the interests of this new venture. . Ï shall be paying a visit shortly to Melbourne to form a similar com- mittee there. What is needed is £5,000 to erect buildings for the accommodation of a day school to take the influx of boys ex- pected in August, and then £15,000 for build- ings to accommodate ...

The Romance of the Potato [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

The Romance of the Potato By RICHARD HILDER, Burnie, Tasmania. In the introduction of what follows, I feel in duty bound to give a brief history of the now indispensable potato, which for 100 years (in England) was regarded as an interesting exotic plant. The true story of the potato, as established by most recent American research, is briefly as follows:-The potato, as we know it, was in cultivation in South America cen- turies before the Christian era. Persistent research has failed to find Solanum tuberosum growing as a wild plant. Vases discovered in pre-his torie graves in Colombia, South Ame- rica, have the exact shape of the cultivated potato tubers. And in some cases dried speci- mens of the root have been found in those tombs. When the Spaniards first invaded South America they found the potato extensively cul- tivated in the high parts of the country, now known as Colombia. As early as 1538 a Span- ish writer mentions the potato found growing near Quitta. He says: "A kind ...
