Our Federal City Taking Form ACTIVITIES AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

Our Federal City Taking Form ACTIVITIES AT CANBERRA. The aspect of Canberra as a garden city, and its possibilities as an attractive tourist resort are being emphasised by its appearance under the prevailing superb weather condi- tions. A mild winter has been followed by a spring time showing at their best the series of extensive plantations where the wattie is in full blossom, and the garden plots and re- serves surrounding the settlements, whose mass of pink and white flowering peach and plum trees is rendered more effective by con- trast with the dark hedges and gardens of the houses, and the vivid green of the neigh' bouring unoccupied areas. To add to the garden city effect, avenues of trees have been planted along the main roads of approach and tree-planting has been under- taken in the grounds of Parliament House, an extensive area already subdivided and under preparation for the gardens of the future. The garden treatment of the surroundings ia proceeding also at Government ...

CANBERRA'S SUPERINTENDENT OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

CANBERRA'S SUPERINTENDENT OF AGRICULTURE. in Mr. J. P. Shelton, M.Sc., B.Sc. (Agri.), H.D.A., who has taken up the position of Superintendent of Agriculture at Canberra, we have an Australian of proved ability, one who will be able to direct students in prac- tical agriculture, and at the same time educate them on scientific lines to obtain the best re- sults from their industry. The position will be largely what Mr. Shelton makes it, in co- ordination with Mr. C. H. Gorman, the Lands Commissioner of the Territory, who is keenly alive to the possibilities in this direction. It is not intended to establish an experiment farm. The main problems upon which attention is to be first concentrated are crop and pasture im- provement, weed control, and fodder conserva- tion. Experiment plots» will be established with the settlers, and hand in hand with this there will be necessary laboratory investiga- tions. In 1912, Mr. Shelton won the first Govern- ment Farrer Scholarship at Hawkesbury Ag...

THE TIDE IS TURNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

THE TIDE IS TURNING. Canberra residents are so used to the spas- modic vituperation of the anti-Canberra Mel- bourne scribes, thaù the following extract from a letter of a former resident, who has returned to Melbourne, is refreshing. It indi- cates that the tide is turning, and that at lass the beauty of Canberra is acknowledged. Speaking of a visit of some of the Victorian members of the English Speaking Union/ the wrriter adds: "I was envious when I saw them away. I thought of their arrival in your lovely spring weather, when everything looks so fresh, and open, and driving to the Hotel Canberra, with its green lawns and flower decked garden plots, Black Mountain in the background, and all the distant hills lovely and blue; and here we are poked away in this cold city, with its drab streets and noisy cars. Oh Î to be back in Canberra."

The Birth of Canberra IMPRESSIONS BY MABEL JUST BRENNAN. [Specially written for the first issue of this Magazine.] [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

The Birth of Canberra IMPRESSIONS BY MABEL JUST BRENNAN. [Specially written for the first issue of this Magazine.] HAIL! CANBERRA! City destined to be- come the fairest gem in the Empire's dia- dem! I was permitted to visit you as a member of the first official party from the Victorian branch of the English Speaking Union early in September in this year of our Lord, 1926. My first impression of you was as you lay smiling in your cradle of opal-like mountains, with your early morning garment of frost sparkling as with a myriad diamonds laved in glorious sunlight! Hail, Canberra! My spirit gazed on you as on an infant in its downy bed! Thou, the babe of a Young Nation ! With eager eyes and throbbing hearts we thrilled as we set our bodily feet on your temporal soil and our eager spirit leapt out to meet the spirit of you who had called us, and was now enfolding us in your embrace. From then on, Canberra, we became yours! Our spirits leapt forward into the vault of. time ! The English ...

ASSOCIATED TREE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

ASSOCIATED TREE PLANTING. Canberra as "The Garden City of the World," is not an exaggerated hope, nor a futile hackneyed phrase, it will, a few years hence be an acknowledged fact. Already the embryo is developing, and the intense study devoted to the carrying out of the plan of its designers by Mr. Weston, Superintendent of Parks and Gardens at Canberra, ably assisted by Mr. J. Holiday, Mr. A. Bruce, and the men employed in afforestation work, enabler those who have seen its growth, to visualise, in a small degree, what the Federal Garden City will be to gladden the eyes of those a generation hence. In conformity with the avenues planned by Mr. Walter Burley Griffin, Mr. W. B. Car- michael, a member of the Highland Society of New South Wales, and the Sydney Cham- ber of Commerce during a visit to Canberra, conceived the idea of public bodies taking up the matter of tree planting, and as will be rioted in a speech by Mr. J. H. Butters in another column the idea became un fait accomp...

LIEUT. J. J. MOORE. Canberra's Pioneer Settler. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

LIEUT. J. J. MOORE. Canberra's Pioneer Settler. In our issues of the old "Pioneer," as it will be called now that this magazine takes its place, Mr. Henry Selkirk, F.R A.H.S., in his historic articles on "Early Canberra," and Lieut. Moore's connection therewith attracted the attention of many who had early asso- ciations with what is now our Federal Capi- tal Territory. The editor has had the pleasure, through those articles, and his lecture on "Early Canberra" of receiving congratula- tory letters from descendants of early settlers. Writing from Victoria, Miss E. S. Moore, a granddaughter of Lieut. J. J. Moore, and also related to Explorers Hamilton Hume and Dr. Throsby, the latter being the first explorer to reach Queanbeyan River, says:- "I am the granddaughter of the late Lieut. J. J. Moore. I was born in N.S.W., and both my parents were born there. My father owned a station in the Riverina and it was there I lived, so I have a good knowledge of bush life. My mother was a niece ...

THE MEN WHO BLAZED THE TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

THE MEN WHO BLAZED THE TRACK. By Yarrum. Guard ye the land we won you; Dear was the price we paid; Trust no selfish seekers, See we are not betrayed. Well could these lines be applied to the last thoughts of the explorers and pioneers of Australia. Explorer Hamilton Hume, in practically the last letter he wrote, said: "I would like, if only for the sake of those who bear my family name, that the work I have done should not be forgotten by my country." In 1924 a handful of people gathered at Al- bury to pay homage to the memory of this brave man and his fellow-explorer, Captain Hovell, to celebrate also the centenary of their intrepid journey. Canberra should have their names perpetuated in a fitting manner if only for the work they accomplished, after three days' strenuous mountaineering, in finding a track through the stately range of blue mountains we view with pleasure as the sun sinks in all its glory behind them, and which Hamilton Hume named "The Australian Alps." "Ainslie" is...

THE LION FARM AT LOS ANGELES. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

THE LION FARM AT LOS ANGELES. By Keith Hudson. [Readers of the last issue of the old "Pioneer" newspaper had from the pen of Mr. Hudson, "An Australians Impressions of America/' We mentioned at the time that Mr. Hudson, for- merly of the Architectural Branch, Canberra, was travelling for experience and to gain fur- ther knowledge of his profession. The follow- ing article gives a first-hand account of how moving pictures are staged-Ed.]. Southern California has much of novelty to show the visitor, and not the least interesting are the strange animal breeding farms around Los Angeles. Australians are sur prised to find rabbit breeding an established and growing industry, and perhaps we may not always look upon this with equanimity when our trade to the United «tates in rabbit fur has dwindled under the competition of the home grown article. The rabbits are mostly of high-class chinchilla stock, and pro- duce fur of a much better quality than that from wild rabbits. There is an establ...

THE LATE MRS. E. G. CRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

THE LATE MRS. E. G. CRACE. It is with extreme regret that we record the passing away of Mrs. E. Gr. Crace at her late residence, "Gungahleen," on September 13th. While engaged in home duties, Mrs. Crace suddenly collapsed through heart failure, and   before medical aid could arrive, she was dead.   Her many friends in the Federal Territory   and beyond were shocked on learning the sad news. Mrs. Helen Blanche Crace was the picture of health, in the prime of life, being only 48 years of age. In all social activities for the progress of Canberra and the surrounding dis- tricts, Mrs. Crace willingly helped in a prac- tical manner. A lady of broad views, happy disposition, and a model hostess, she, with her devoted husband, extended hospitality to many visitors to Canberra at their picturesque homestead. The sympathy of the community spontaneously went out to Mr. E. G. Crace and family. Those who knew what a happy home it had been felt how keen wou...

PRONUNCIATION OF CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

PRONUNCIATION OF CANBERRA. At the recent dinner given by the citizens of Canberra to the visiting representatives of the Victorian Rotary Club and the English Speaking Union, the chairman Padre Ward, emphasised the fact that Canberra is pro- nounced Can-bra. Successive speakers invari- ably called it "Can-ber-ra," and the company, on the alert, jocularly corrected them, so much so that other speakers approached the word apprehensively, Padre Ward's correction was timely, inasmuch as these visitors (nearly 100) will be teachers in Victoria of the correct way to pronounce the word, Mr. Henry Selkirk, wjien writing to the editor some time ago, stated:-"I have been familiar with the word for upwards of fifty years, and have always heard it pronounced with the accent on the first syllable, the pity is it was not spelt Can-bera." The writer has questioned closely all the old residents, and without exception they pronounce the word Can-bra. Mr. Wm. McIntosh, senr., writes:-"As an old resid...

CANBERRA UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

CANBERRA UNIVERSITY A project for the establishment of a uni- versity at Canberra is under consideration by the Federal authorities. A committee, con- sisting of the vice-chancellor of the University of Sydney (Sir Mungo MacCalluin), Profes- sor Wallace, of Melbourne University, and Mr. Giblin (Tasmania), has reported on the matter, and its proposals have been placed before the Federal Capital Commission. The committee recommended that faculties of arts and law should be established, and that at the outset professors of economics and of law should be appointed. It was recommended also that lectures in first year science subjects should be instituted, the services of lecturers from Duntroon and the National Museum being available for the purpose, and that scholarships should be provided to take stu- dents to a, different university for courses in science, medicine, engineering, etc., after the first year. It was suggested that the necessary work of the law school, apart from that und...

HARRY MORANT (THE BREAKER). [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 15 October 1926

HARRY MORANT (THE BREAKER). In a future issue of "The Pioneer Maga- zine," we will publish an article on an incident in the life of "The Breaker," whom the editor met in the 90's. He gave his life like a martyr in South Africa; a man who died through an attempt to avenge the brutality of the Boers on a wounded chum. Prior to leaving Australia to serve in the Boer War, Harry Morant wrote for a friend on the back of his own photo.:- When the last rousing gallop is ended, And the last post and rail has been jumped: And the last cracked neck that cannot be mended, Shall under the yew tree safely be dumped. Just leave him alone in God's acre, And drink in wine, whisky, or beer, May the saints up above send "The Breaker," A horse like my old "Cavalier."
