A POPULAR APPOINTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
A POPULAR APPOINTMENT Applications were recently called for through the metropolitan press for the position of Superintendent of Parks and Gardens at Canberra. After they were considered the posi- tion was secured by Mr. C. Weston, late Chief of the Afforestation &nbsp; Branch. A more worthy and capable occupant of the position could not be found within the Commonwealth. The work—pioneering work—Mr. &nbsp; Weston has done in laying out the various parks, gardens, and planta- tions on the Federal Territory will stand for all time as a monument to his ability and painstaking labours. May he long enjoy the position he has won. Constable Foster is still suffering from the blow received from one of the "bottle" users. A cowards wea- pon at all times.
CANBERRA FIRE BRIGADE WINS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
CANBERRA FIRE BRIGADE WINS At the Eight-Hour Day Sports or- ganised by the Queanbeyan Pastoral and Agricultural Society, and held on the Queanbeyan Showground, a valuable shield was presented by Mr. H. J. Richardson for an open Fire Brigade competition. Canberra Fire Brigade was requested to nominate, which they did with the consent of the Commissioners. There were only two entries, Queanbeyan and Can- berra. There were many remarks from the large crowd attending which were not very flattering to the Queanbeyan men. Canberra's men, under Chief Offi- cer P. Douglas, turned out with their fine motor engine looking as though &nbsp; burnished to the last inch. The Bri- &nbsp; gade, looked spick and span, their helmets, buttons and hose nozzles glittering in the sun and knee boots shining. Queanbeyan Volunteer Brigade (by the way, Canberra is a volun- teer brigade also, with the exception of its Chief Officer and engine-driver attendant), under Captain Jordan, had their h...
TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL P. & C. ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
TELOPEA PARK SCHOOL P. & C. ASSOCIATION The usual monthly meeting of the Telopea Park School Parents and Citizens Association was held in the Schoolroom on last Wednesday week.

The minutes of the previous meet- ing were read and confirmed, and outward and inward correspondence dealth with. The subject of the erection of Tennis Courts within the school grounds for senior pupils was con- sidered, and the Chairman requested Mr. Dunn to acquaint the members with the steps already taken. Mr. Dunn stated that the sub- &nbsp; committee appointed at the last meeting to inquire into the matter (Mr. T. Boag, Mr. H. H. Martin, and himself, with the headmaster), had inspected the site chosen, and it would require little levelling and grading. It was decided to get in touch with the Children's Welfare C...
FOREIGN STEAMERS THANKS TO WALSH AND JOHANSEN [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
FOREIGN STEAMERS THANKS TO WALSH AND JOHANSEN From Brisbane the fact is empha- sised that owing to the strike of British seamen, foreign ships are reaping a harvest of freight. The Dutch steamer Abbekirk, and the Norwegian vessel, Tourine, are load- ing wool worth £30,000 in freight. This money is lost to British ships. The French steamer, Cephee, is tak- ing 20,000 bales of wool, also a mixed cargo of hides, skins, etc., worth in freight £60,000 and these foreign ships pay their seamen in some cases half the amount British seamen receive. This is how the foreigner wins and if Walsh & Co. were sincere in their desire to help British seamen, the first move should have been to declare foreign ships "black." Miss I. Kermode announces that she is in attendance at St. Paul's Church of England Hall, Eastlake, on Tuesdays and Fridays to receive new pupils for piano and all exams.

BOY SCOUTS' MOVEMENT A TROOP FORMED AT CANBERRA On Friday evening at Acton Hall, there was an attendance off about 80 to welcome and hear a lecture illus- trated by lantern slides by Deputy Chief Scout McAlister. Mr. C. H. Garmon, Commissioner, presided.

CANBERRA BURNS CLUB ANNUAL MEETING. The above club held their first anniversary meeting at Acton Hall on Friday evening, October 23rd. &nbsp; The popularity and success of the Club was shown by the fine attend- ance of both sexes. Mr. Walter Scott (President) was in the chair, and &nbsp; Colonel Goodwin also occupied a seat on the platform. The meeting was convened for the purpose of elect- ing executive officers for the coming year. &nbsp; The Chairman, in his opening re- marks, mentioned that twelve months ago they met to inaugurate a "Burns Club" and nine attended. In twelve months the club had grown to 115 members, which he considered highly satisfactory and encouraging. Mr. Scott also stated that Saturday night socials were inaugurated, the pro- ceeds in every case being devoted to charitable and deserving objects. The hon. treasurer Mr. Robert Templeton, was then called upon to read the financial statement. This proved the value of the work of &...
PROGRESS AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
PROGRESS AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE. The main entrance to Federal Parliament House is assuming artis- tic proportions. The main doors, side windows and arched windows, have just been completed and glazed. &nbsp; The supply, delivery, and fixing, was the work of Messrs. H. and E. Sid- greaves, shop front designers and &nbsp; manufacturers, Collins St., Sydney. The frames of the doors and sashes are of copper-sheathed woodwork backed with blackwood, and the cop- per work is artistic and in keeping with the design of the structure. When glazed, the work will, without doubt, be durable and artistic, and will materially aid the adornment of the entrance to our future Legis- lative Chambers. An idea of the solidity of the work may be gained by a perusal of the following measurements and weights —Entrance doors and windows above in sheathed copper metal, 17ft. x 10ft. 6in. and two side windows 16ft. x 10ft. 6in. Four circular head win- dows 18ft. x 7ft. 6in. The main en- trance do...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
WEDDING BELLS The wedding was celebrated at Canberra Church on Thursday, 15th October, of Alexander, son of Mrs. and the late Mr. H. Hamilton, of Bankhead Road Rutherglen, Scot- land, to Jean, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Meikie, of Knowe Place, Rutherglen, Scotland. Rev. F. G. Ward officiated. After the wedding a few intimate friends met at the residence of the bridegroom's uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. D. Gardner, Westlake, where an enjoyable re- &nbsp; past was partaken of and the usual toasts honored. In the evening a large circle of friends gathered at Westlake Hall to tender their good wishes and extend a hearty welcome to the bride, who but recently ar- rived in Australia from Scotland. As was to be expected, the Scotch element predominated and it only required "the skirl o' the pipes" to put the finishing touch on a very harmonious company. Among the artists present were Mr. and Mrs. Sandy Alder, Mrs. Mitchell, and several others well known locally. An enjoyable musi...
SCHOOL CHILDREN'S TRIBUTE TO COL. J. T. H. GOODWIN, Late Commonwealth Surveyor-General. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 October 1925
SCHOOL CHILDREN'S TRIBUTE TO COL. J. T. H. GOODWIN, Late Commonwealth Surveyor- &nbsp; General. A pleasing ceremony took place at Telopea Park Public School since our last issue, when the children from various centres of Canberra who attend the above school, asked Mr. Goodwin to meet them at the school. From the day the school was handed over to him, in his position as head of the Lands Department, to the pre- sent day, Mr. Goodwin and Mrs. Goodwin have been solicitous for the good of the children of Canberra— every function found them helping in a practical manner. The first "Empire Day" since the opening of the school (two years ago) is proof of this. Mr. Goodwin made arrange- ments and secured Yarrowlumla House grounds for a picnic, and Mrs. Goodwin donated fruits and sweets. This year the function was held in the school. The object in inviting Mr. Good- win was to make some presentation to himself and Mrs. Goodwin. (Un- fortunately Mrs. Goodwin was called away to Melbour...
