An Early Federal Movement [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

An Early Federal Movement By K. R, CRAMP, Hon. Secretary Royal Australian Historical Society. It is believed by many that the movement for Federation in Australia originated with Sir Henry Parkes. It is quite true that this remarkable statesman manifested extraordinar- ily large vision, and that none was more in- fused with the Federal spirit than he. It was largely due to his persistent advocacy in the eighties and nineties that the Federal knot was tied in 1901. In that sense he may be regarded as the father of Federation; the great personality that ensured its birth. . But the earliest suggestions of a Federal union were made before Parkes entered the political arena. The original proposal was due to a frus- trated attempt to set up a form of preferen- tial trade, or, to use the term of the time, "differential trade" between New South Wales, New Zealand and Tasmania in the forties. The Legislative Assembly of the Mother colony, which, in 1842 was a purely nominee House, proposed ...

CANBERRA'S CHRISTENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

CANBERRA'S CHRISTENING. By MABEL JUST BRENDAN, Temporally we can't all attend the great christening ceremony on May 9, but in spirit every true Australian will be there! Can- berra, the beautiful babe with the blue of the skies for her eyes, the glorious sunshine her robe by day, the dark blue of the heavens for her night robe, the stars her diadem by night, the, as yet, "shingled" forest which is destined later to be her crowning glory, the covering of her infant head, lies in her cradle of opal mountains before the great White House which stands in its whiteness symbolic of her un- spotted soul-the great soul of Canberra waiting the day when the Duke of York, re- presentative of our temporal head, the son of our Empire's King, will quicken her from the neutrality of an ideal, endow her with in- dividuality and raise her to a status amongst the great cities of the world. A quarter of a century earlier, our King, then Duke of York, was the chief priest at the christening of the Comm...

The Bombardment of Sydney [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

The Bombardment of Sydney By FRANK WALKER, F.R.A.H.S. The above heading is a sensational one enough in these days of war's alarms, but it is substantially correct, for just 113 years ago the town of Sydney underwent a bombardment from a vessel in the Cove, and, although it was an accident, it was none the less serious on that account. The event occurred on the even- ing of the 20th May, 1814, and, whilst it lasted, provided enough excitement and terror for the inhabitants to last them for the rest of their lives, lt would appear that the "Three Bees," a ship of about 500 ions burthen, and loaded with general merchandise, had been anchored near the western side of the Cove, and when a fire broke out in the hold the mooring lines were cut and the vessel drifted out from the shore, by this time well alight. lt was the custom in those days for over- sea vessels to carry guns, and the "Three Bees" was well provided in this particular, and, moreover, the guns were loaded, whilst she had a...

AN HISTORIC MAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

AN HISTORIO MAP. Here is a reproduction from the first official map of the Federal Territory portion, from the map drawn by Surveyor George Dixson, who was engaged on survey work in this por- tion of Australia practically from 1837 to 1846. There is an original map in the Mit- chell Library, Sydney. A friend of the editor, who in years gone by was engaged in survey work, but not in the Government service, had, handed down to him, one of these early maps, and fortunately pre- served it. The map shows all grants, and leases, up to 1843, of what is now Federal Territory, Canberra. Explorer Sturt's grant, adjoining Yarralumla, can be plainly discerned as "5,000" acres.

THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL'S CAR. "FOR SALE, PRE-WAR LANCHESTER, £25." [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

TOE GOVERNOR-GENERALS CAR. «'FOR SALE, PRE-WAR LANCHESTER, £25." That simple announcement in an Armadale (V.) motor garage works marks the final stage in the decline of what was in its day one of the finest motor cars in the world. When brought to Melbourne in 1913 by the Governor General, Sir Ronald Munro Ferguson (now Lord Novar), it was an object of won- der, for no car of such magnificence had been seen here before. Even now, in the luxurious- ness of its upholstering and the quality of its accessories, very few cars are its rivals (says a Melbourne paper). It cost in those days £650; but a much larger sum would have to be spent to-day be- fore a ear similar to it could be made. Noth- ing but the best iron, steel, and aluminium were used, and every part was cast« not press- ed. The engine, built under the front seat is still in perfect condition, after 13 years of use, and all the fittings are hand-made. The decline of the car has been followed with interest by Mr. A. Atyeo, of ...

Canberra Leases HIGH PRICES AT AUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

Canberra Leases HIGH PRICES AT AUCTION. Since the first sale of business and residen- tial sites at Canberra, on December 12, 1924, and the second sale on May 9, 1926, the big inquiry led to another sale on Saturday, April 9. The Federal Capital Commissioners placed the sale of the leasehold (99 years title) in the hands of Messrs. Woodgers & Calthorpe, auctioneers and estate agents, of Canberra and Queanbeyan. The prices reached, in some eases, more than three times the upset price placed upon them. That the sale was very successful is evidenced by the fact that capital value of the blocks sold was £69,825, as com- pared with the official estimate of £34,560. Although special blocks on the Mugga Heights reserved for superior residences at a minimum cost of £3,500 failed to obtain any bidders, competition for business sites in the Civic Cen- tre and for a motor service station was keen. Both Melbourne and Sydney business men at- tended the sale, but Canberra interests ob- ta...

THE CANBERRA FLORIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

THE CANBERRA FLORIN. Since it became known that the Common- wealth Government intended to issue a special mintage of florins to commemorate the open- ing of the Federal Capital by the Duke of York, coin collectors have been making an- xious inquiries about the number of such coins to be issued. It is understood that the whole issue of florins for 1927 will consist of the souvenir coins, of which probably 2,000,000 will be minted at the Royal Mint, Melbourne, and a large supply would be ready for issue before the opening of Parliament on 9th May. The dies were made by the Imperial Mint authorities in London, where the design was approved by Mr. Bruce while he was on his visit to the Imperial Conference. The de- sign of the coin is simple. The side bearing the King's head is the same as the "head" side of the old issue, but instead of the emu and kangaroo on the "tail" side the new florin has a relief image of Federal Parliament House at Canberra, with crossed maces under- neath, and ...
