TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

TENNIS. Canberra were successful on Satur- day afternoon in holding the Gorman Cup which they lifted from North- bourne recently, despite the deter- mined effort of the Eastlake Club to regain possession. The bulldog te- nacity of the Canberra gents, who would not admit defeat and who per- sistently emulated the "Horsey" of dance hall fame, was largely respon- sible for the defeat of Eastlake. On two sets Eastlake had the lead 5-3 and 40 love and in each case Can- berra, fighting desperately, was suc- cessful in capturing the set. The ladies doubles provided some sparkling tennis, but Miss Reid's de- structive smashes at the net com- bined with Mrs. Mildenhall's con-   sistent returns were instrumental in   winning the two sets straight. A most enjoyable afternoon's   sport was provided, and every game was fought in the best sportsman- like spirit. Despite the heat the tennis was on the whole of a high standard. The ladies, with their customary...

FACT! [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

Can-berra-lot, but this DID hap-   pen. A tourist party motoring near "The Causeway" Pipeworks, stopped   a passer by and inquired, "How far is it to Canberra?" The reply was, "You're at Canberra now." "What! This Canberra? Why there's streets and houses ahead. We thought we were miles from it: thought it was in those 'bushy hills.'" Ugh!

J. J. POWER, ex-M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

J. J. POWER, ex-M.L.A. Among recent tourists visiting Canberra was the portly form of Mr. J. J. Power, ex-M.L.A. of N.S.W. We knew him in the nineties, when his pater was proprietor of "Power's Hotel," Martin' Place, now (then known as Moore Street), opposite where the Commercial Travellers' Club stands. A chat about old times when the "Bulletin" office was oppo- site Power's Hotel, and Wangen- heim's walls were decorated with black and white, topical subjects by Phil May, Slint Fisher, McBeth, and many other celebrated artists of that day. J. J. Power told a good one when visiting Parliament House in course of progress. Noticing the radiators in the various rooms, he said, I'll never forget my, first ex- perience of those radiators. I was travelling in America and during my stay at New York put up at a   new, up-to-date, skyscaping hotel.   After I turned in, although the night was cold, I began to prespire freely and could not understand it. I tried light...

SOCIAL AT WESTRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

SOCIAL AT WESTRIDGE On Friday evening, November 13, a very enjoyable evening was spent by those who attended a dance social held for the purpose of raising funds for a sewing machine for the girls at Telopea Park School and sports ma- terial for the boys. The function was organised by the Parents and Citi- zens' Association attached to the School. The evening was cool, the floor a pleasure to dancers, and the music provided by Miss Paul's (of Eastlake) Orchestra was favourably   commented on, and encores were in demand. The company included visi- tors from Queanbeyan, Eastlake, Blandfordia, Acton, Westlake, and Westridge. Mr. H. M. Rolland, pre- sident of the P. & C. Association, was present representing the Asso- ciation and spent a couple of hours with the company. Messrs. Eggles- ton and J. Lea were in charge of the door and tickets, and the hon. sec., Mr. A. K Murray.   About midnight, supper was a   welcome item and was relished by...

"PIONEERS." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

"PIONEERS." Replying to the toast of "The Prime Minister," proposed at a din-   ner given in his honor by the resi- dents of Goulburn at the Royal Hotel, Mr. Bruce is reported thus: "He thought the toast being en- trusted to Mr. Bartlett would remind them of those pioneers who had gone before. We were sometimes in- clined to think we are the salt of the earth, and that we had done every- thing to place ourselves in the proud position we occupied. But we, as individuals, should not forget what we owed the Pioneer's of our land." That thought should sink in; it is   not sentiment, but bare justice. Can- berra has had this load to bear in the naming of its suburbs, avenues, and environs. It would appear as though   "someone" studiously avoided giving the names of any of the venturesome, unselfish, hardy Pioneer explorers, and others, who sacrificed their time, ability, health, and in some cases their lives in working out the early foundations of o...

A TIMELY SAVE [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

A TIMELY SAVE On Saturday, Nov. 7th, while some men were working at a pump near Mr. Jolly's residence on the Molonglo River, at the rear of the Power House, two children, between 6 and 7 years of age, commandeered a small punt near the weir and were soon afloat. When the boat began to rock the eldest, who could swim, jumped out and managed to get safely ashore. The other boy, Tom Smith, trying to follow his companion's example, also jumped out, but being unable to swim he was soon in difficulties and sank before aid reached him. One of the workmen on the pump made a gallant effort to reach the child, but was unsuccessful. Mr. George Guy, from the Stores Depart- ment, fortunately happened to be handy and at once jumped in fully dressed and dived for the child and secured him at the first attempt just after he sank. The child kicked and clawed frantically, but Mr. Guy landed him safely. They soon had the water off his chest and resusci- tated him, and the boy recovered later on. It wa...

SCOUT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

SCOUT WORK. We have received the following   from one of the "Canberra" First Troop Scouts which we gladly in-   sert:—   The Scouts recently had an open- air meeting on the flat behind the Acton Offices, when the boys went swimming and learnt a bit of Sema- phore signalling. In future, meet- ings at the Acton Hall every Thurs- day will be a regular fixture. In a   few weeks time another camp will be held.     At the last camp (Black Moun-   tain) the boys had an A1 time, and went home brown and healthy, many of them anxiously waiting to get   home so that they could try their hand at making "Flap-Jacks" and camp pancakes. They had camp-fire yarns, debates on the Scout Law, and some gave songs and recitations. From what I have heard, most of them are ready to go to next camp. Quite a lot was learnt out there, in- cluding first aid. To encourage the boys to learn a little, only tho...

SIR HENRY PARKES, K.C.M.G. THE FATHER OF FEDERATION. V. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

SIR HENRY PARKES, K.C.M.G. THE FATHER OF FEDERATION, V. Through pressure of space we have been compelled to omit, in the past few issues, the continuance of the articles dealing with Australia's greatest statesman, Sir Henry Parkes. This article, in view of the disturbed state of our political life, is fitting. Sir Henry in his work, "Fifty years of Australian History," writes:— "Fifty-five years passed away from the arrival of the 'First Fleet' of Governor Phillip, before the British people settled in Australia obtained the faintest voice in the management of their public affairs. Instead of 'one man one vote' there was not one vote for all the thousands in the country. So, if we date from that epoch, we have not yet completed half a century of enfranchised life (1892). In 1825 the total trade of Austra- lia was of the value of £511,998 or £10/13/11 per inhabitant. In 1861 it had reached the value of £51,001,- 071 or £40/5/5 per inhabitant. In 1889 it had risen to £131,749,505, or ...

A NOTABLE PIONEER BOTANIST DEATH OF MR. J. H. MAIDEN, C.M.G., F.R.S. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

A NOTABLE PIONEER   BOTANIST DEATH OF MR. J. H. MAIDEN,   C.M.G., F.R.S. When the death of Mr Joseph Henry Maiden was announced in the Sydney Press of Nov. 16th, those who knew Mr. Maiden felt that a great man and cultured botanist had gone from our midst. The Sydney Botanical Gardens and Centennial Park are some evidence of the ad- ministrative as well as the practical work of this master mind. Among the positions he held after reaching Australia in the early 70's were research assistant to the late Professor Barff, M.A. (Syd. Uni.), then appointed first Curator of the Sydney Technical Museum, 1881-96. He was also Superintendent of Tech- nical Education and Consulting Bo- tanist to the Department of Agricul- ture and Forestry, N.S.W. He held office in the Association for the Ad- vancement of Science, also hon. sec. to the Royal Society of N.S.W., and was a member of the Linnean and Historical Societies, a Fellow of the Royal Society, and received the Im- p...

The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. NOVEMBER 20, 1925 AUSTRALIA'S VERDICT [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. NOVEMBER 20, 1926   AUSTRALIA'S VERDICT The crisis which has just passed in the destiny of Australia is fruit- ful of many lessons. As "The Pio neer" came into the journalistic arena through the undiplomatic assertion of a professed Bolshevic, and in each issue has stood up against their influence, we make no apology for saying we glory in the fact that United Australia has through the ballot box spoken with no uncertain voice and said "Away with Communism." That the advo- cates of "Direct Action," such as Garden, Johansen, Walsh and Grant had, by some subtle means, gained power in the Labour movement in spite of the majority of Labour unionists objecting to them, cannot be denied by any honest thinker. The heavy poll, intensified by the "compulsory" clause, and that clause wholly in favour of the working class, swung to the side of sane politics. Thousands of sterling unionists, d...

HOWARD. CANBERRA'S MOST POPULAR FREEHOLD SUBURB. A MODEL OF MODERN TOWN PLANNING. (Special Article.) [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925

HOWARD. CANBERRA'S MOST POPULAR FREEHOLD SUBURB.   A MODEL OF MODERN TOWN PLANNING. A most interesting example of the art of modern town planning has   just been completed on the Freehold lands adjoining the Federal Terri-   tory and having nearly a mile fron- tage to the main railway line which forms the boundary of the Territory. A new railway station is to be constructed at once and will be named "Howard" after Mr. Ebenezer     Howard, the father of the Garden   City movement in England and Pre- sident of the International Federa- tion for Town Planning and for Gar- den Cities.   This station is in an ideal position from a railway point of view being on a level piece of line which then   rises in both directions so that if a train got out of control it would run down past the station and then back- wards and forwards until it finally brought up right at the station. Level cross...
