Constructional Activities at Canberra The constructional work at Parliament House is practically finished. The rooms are now ready to receive the furniture, which is arriving daily. It is expected that all furni- ture will be placed into position by the end of the present month. Carpet and linoleum laying generally is well in hand.

All elec- trical and mechanical services are on the verge of completion. The surrounding area is the scene of much activity-concrete kerbing and guttering, the gravelling of paths and the formation of roads are almost completed.

Canberra Revisited [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

Canberra Revisited DR. FEEDK. W. ROBINSON, Queensland University. I We feel deeply indebted to Dr. F. W. Robin- son for the following article, the first of a series he has kindly promised to write, ex- clusively for "The Pioneer," Dr. Robinson is well known as the author of "Canberra's First Hundred Years," which will be a classic future historians will study and quote from. When Professor at Duntroon Royal Military College, he devoted much tims delving into every avenue for material to accurately trace the past history of what is now Federal Territory, and the work he has set himself to do will yield good results to benefit future generations. This article is a foretaste of what is to come.-Ed.] What mean ye by these things? .... These old words echo out of a time long past, but they contain a question which recurs with every generation. It is the question prompted by the instinct of human curiosity as to its own past, when awakened by some monument, some ruin or mere remainder, ou...

CANBERRA'S FIRST POST OFFICE AND FIRST POSTMASTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

CANBERRA S FIRST POST OFFICE AND FIRST POSTMASTER. One of the most interesting landscapes of early Canberra, painted by artist Boyd, brought from Queen's Hall, Parliament House, Melbourne, and placed in King's Hall, Parliament House, Canberra, shows a view from Mount Pleasant, looking west, overlook- ing what is now Ainslie and Acton. It was painted on the spot in 1912, and Canberra's first Post Office was then standing and is shown in the picture. Since then it has come under the building demolishers' operations, and not a vestige of it remains. Sutton is a small village within the Federal Territory, and Mr. J. Williams, the postmaster, is a son of Canberra's first postmaster. From Mr. Williams, who also conducts a "smithy" there, we have received the following details concern- ing Canberra's first postmaster:— Francis James Williams was born in Syd- ney June l, 1829. He was educated at St. James' Church of England School, and was a prominent singer in St. James' choir for some yea...

McCaudle the Roamer THE CAMP FIRE CONCERT. (Continued from January Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

McCaudle the Roamer THE CAMP FIRE CONCERT. By YARRUM. (Continued from January Issue.) In the January issue I introduced readers again to McCaudle, the Trinity College (Dub- lin) graduate who had taken up his residence in Australia,-remittance man, a periodical bush hotel spender, but a confirmed roamer of the back-country-wide-spaces, west of Bourke and out to Central Queensland. McCaudle had arrived at our homestead just in time to be "put on" as one of the drovers of a twelve thousand mob of sheep about to start on a long trip, from beyond the Queensland bor- der to a station on the Bogan River, N.S.W. Young Jimmy Cashman, the son of the head stockman at the out station, was as proud of his place in the drover's team as "horsetailer" as any newly appointed A.B.C. to a State Governor. It was his first journey outside the paddocks in which his father had ridden, mustered, and driven stock, during the 12 years of young Jimmy's life. We were about four days' journey on the road and, a...

THE ONLY DESCENDANTS OF LIEUT. J. J. MOORE. The First Settler at Canberra. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 March 1927

TEE ONLY DESCENDANTS OF LIEUT. J. J. MOORE. The First Settler at Canberra. In this issue we reproduce photos of the Misses Moore, granddaughters of Canberra's first settler, as recorded historically in early issues of The Pioneer by Mr. Henry Selkirk, F.R.A.H.S. These ladies are the only living descendants bearing the historic name of Moore. Another historic link is, that their mother was a sister of Hamilton Hume, the explorer- another link with Canberra, because the explorers Hamilton Hume and Captain Hovell were close to Limestone Plains as Can- berra was called in 1824. The Misses Moore were born in N.S.W.; their father, Fredk. T. Moore, owned a station in the Riverina, and finally settled in Vic- toria, where his daughters now reside.

MAMMOTH MEALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

MAMMOTH MEALS. Britain can boast of some remarkable trenchermen, but for anything unusual in this direction we have to go to America! A little while ago, Beefsteak Pete, a cele- brated Bowery character, consumed 17 lb. of meat at one sitting. Five days later he ate 24 lb. of steak at one meal. Recently the champion pie-eater of Brook- lyn, New York, who also claims the 'pie-eating championship of the world, consumed sixty-one pies in ninety-one minutes. Then there is on record the feat of "Lamby" Smith, who ate seventy-five lamb chops at one sitting, and the achievement of the water-melon champion of consuming seventeen juicy specimens of his favorite fruit in one day! Another man ate fifty-three hard-boiled eggs in an hour, as a result of which he died, while the champion green corn-eater disposed of so many ears of corn at a meal that the length of the cobs laid end to end aggregated 21 ft. 7 in. The latest accomplishment is that of "Little Neck Silas," of Staten Island. He ate 60...

PRESENCE OF MIND. During the World War one of the great steamships that was used as a transport for soldiers was on her way across when a torpedo boat was sight- ed. In anticipation of the danger they were rn, all on board were lined up on deck. There was a deathly hush for an instant, when suddenly from down the line a negro's voice rang out: "Is dar ennybody heah dat wants to buy a gold watch and chain?"
