PROGRESS OF WORKS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925
PROGRESS OF WORKS The work of constructing the Cap- ital goes undisturbedly on. Our last issue gave a somewhat brief indica- tion of the volume of activities, and the progress at the end of Septem- ber. The pressure lessened not dur- &nbsp; ing October, and each week means a definite advance in the preparation for the invasion which is steadily drawing nearer. Parliament House, the sole reason for the development of other acti- vities, has now attained externally an attractive appearance, which &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; should excite the interest and admir- ation of the visitors for whom Can- berra will prove the enjoyable ter- minus of a Christmas tour. Inter- nally, too, it is a veritable hive of industry, artisans of all trades ap- parently vying with one another in their efforts in the interests of the future occupants. The internal plas- tering of the main block is practi- cally completed, and that of the kitchen block is well advanced. The whole of t...
UNITED SCHOOLS SPORTS DAY FOR ALL CHILDREN ON THE CAPITAL TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 November 1925
UNITED SCHOOLS SPORTS DAY FOR ALL CHILDREN ON THE CAPITAL TERRITORY. The Telopea Park School Parents and Citizens Association inaugur- ated an annual picnic for the Telopea Park school children and held it first on Empire Day. On account of the &nbsp; unseasonable weather at that time of the year, it was decided this year to postpone it and hold it later in &nbsp; &nbsp; the year when the weather would be more pleasant. At the monthly meeting held on Nov. 4th the date was fixed and a committee appointed to arrange details. Mr J. H. Butters, Commissioner, &nbsp; &nbsp; hearing of the project at once got in touch with Mr. Henry, the headmaster, and through him the secre- tary, and the Association. Mr But- ters promised, on behalf of the Com- mission, that if it were made "A &nbsp; &nbsp; united sports day," the Federal Capital Commission would help financially as well as provide trans- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;...

The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. DECEMBER 21, 1925 A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR to all our Readers and Advertisers, the rest of the Commonwealth included. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. DECEMBER 21, 1925 A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR to all our Readers and Advertisers, the rest of the Commonwealth in- cluded. This issue not only brings us to the threshold of the festive season, but it is "the anniversary" issue. On December 3rd, 1924, "The Pioneer" entered the world of newspapers; it was of humble pretensions but thanks to our readers and business folk it has attained a circulation and main- tained interest far beyond the bor- ders of the Federal Territory—al- ready it reaches America, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, and many parts of England. We have subscribers in New Zealand, Fiji, and all the States —not casual, but annual. We have endeavored to give only sound mat- ter, avoiding vitrolic, gossipy scan- dal. We have had many effusions sent in of a "bee in the bonnet" nature, as well as correspondents who sent in growls anent adminis- tration, which they would not ...
RECORD LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
RECORD LAND SALE. On Saturday last the anxious en- quiry and demand for building blocks in Queanbeyan was fully demon- trated at the land sale held by Messrs. Woodgers and Calthorpe at their rooms, Monaro Street, when the record sale of 143 blocks sold in 90 minutes was established. It would be interesting to know if this has been surpassed within the Common- wealth. The sale of these blocks realised £8,667. All blocks were re- sidential and brought up to £3 per foot. Prior to the auction sale the Queanbeyan P. & A. Association pri- vately bought 24 blocks adjoining the showground for £1110. Messrs. Woodgers & Calthorpe are to be con- gratulated on the success achieved.
Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
DEATH. &nbsp; The death occurred on Friday, the 11th December, of Mr. John Rose at Canberra. The late Mr. Rose was associated with the Main Sewer workings, on the Federal Capital, for a period of upwards of four years, in the capacity of miner and shift boss. The funeral took place on Saturday, 12th December, and was attended by a large number of &nbsp; friends and fellow workmen, the place of interment being Queanbeyan Cemetery. Deceased was 56 years of age, and was a native of Sebasto- pol, Victoria. A number of beautiful floral tributes were placed on the grave. The pall-bearers were Messrs. J. J. Dillon, M. Flynn, C. Taylor and P. King, and the burial service was impressively conducted by the Rev. Father Haydon. Mr. Rose was an ardent horticul- turalist, and with Mr. Rodgers at Westlake had a garden of flowers and vegetables that were the admira- tion of all in the vicinity. At the recent Canberra Horticultural Show Mr. Rose and his colleague won first prizes for...
PRIZE ESSAY. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
PRIZE ESSAY. Mrs. J. H. Goodwin donated a spe- cial prize for an Essay on Education, to be written during school hours. &nbsp; The winner, Master. E. Waterman, is to be complimented on his effort, &nbsp; which we publish. EDUCATION. &nbsp; 1. Meaning of the term Education. 2. Value of Education. 1. Meaning.—Education has been &nbsp; defined by Herbert Spencer as "A preparation for a complete living." &nbsp; And, in its widest app1cation the word may well include the whole process of development through which we all pass in our allotted span, and the adapting of oneself to one's physical and social environ- &nbsp; &nbsp; ment. But the usual and more de- finite sense in which the term is used, is applied to those measures employed by the adults of a com- munity for the instruction of the young and the elevation of the stan- dard of culture. &nbsp; 2. Value: (1) Of Home Life.— &nbsp; Among the many different forms ...

When an improvement is discovered, per- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; fected, tested and found good, it is made at once. The car is always up-to-date. Moreover, the owner does not have to fear that his Dodge Brothers Motor Car will be made obsolete, shortly after he has bought it, by the announcement of &nbsp; &nbsp; radically new types.

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS AND WISE INVESTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS AND WISE INVESTMENT. As the end of the year approaches our human nature asserts itself and resolutions are made for the better ruling of our lives and routine for the coming year. We give the past year a rough survey and pick out the things which we should have done and the things which should not have been done and it is a happy and fortunate being or perhaps a &nbsp; self-satisfied one that can find no errors and omissions in their life during the period under review. &nbsp; Perhaps the most universal resolve is to exercise thrift, put aside a little more every week to make provisions for a rainy day, old age and or for the benefit of our dependents. We are not naturally a very thrifty nation and it is just as well that a time such as this comes annually and an impetus is given to us in this direction. The basis of all wealth being land and the product thereof, the surest way of saving moeny and of making a safe investment for savings is the pu...

THE "CANBERRA ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE." A NEW QUARTERLY. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
THE "CANBERRA ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE." NEW QUARTERLY. Canberra should be well and truly advertised when the new magazine under the above title comes under the notice of the people of the Com- monwealth. It is well printed, its illustrations—historical, geographi- cal, and topical—are worth the mo- ney paid for a copy (2/-). Its let- terpress is clear, and comprises splendid matter, poetical, historical and interesting, not only to those within the confines of Federal Capital Territory, but for those outside its boundaries who desire intimate, ac- curate data concerning Australia's future Capital City, Canberra. The &nbsp; joint editors and proprietors are Messrs. D. B. O'Connor and R. C. &nbsp; Jones, and they are to be compli- mented on their initial effort. They have secured the assistance of such well-known writers as Roderic Quinn in a fine poem "Canberra, the Pride of Time," J. H. M. Abbott in "A &nbsp; word with Mr. Ainslie," semi-fic- &nbsp; tion...
TERRITORIAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
TERRITORIAL ITEMS. "Jim" Phillips, one of Canberra's oldest identities, has "crossed the Great Divide." His end came in hos- pital where he was undergoing treat- ment in Sydney. We tender our sincere sympathy to his widow. Old Jim was a conscientious, faithful worker, and ready at all times to do charitable acts. "Ted" Clark, sen., another life- &nbsp; long employee in the Territory, is seriously ill, and has been for the past two months. We hope he may &nbsp; soon recover. The bookings at the Hotel Can- berra for tourists and others during Xmas holidays have been many. Canberra will cater for more visitors this year than ever it has before.
CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. This Club is going ahead as in- &nbsp; creased membership and interest proves. Though started only twelve months, the membership is over 150, and in that time over £500 has been collected for practical charitable pur- poses. The first President of the Club, and who did much of the ini- tial work which brought Burns Club into prominence, was Mr. Walter Scott, who recently resigned after holding the position for the first year. Mr. Jas. McKinnon by a unanimous vote, was appointed his successor, and already has shown as he did as a working member of the committee in the past, a deep and keen interest in the development of the Club. With Mr. A. Stuart as secretary, the Club has recently held a successful concert at Acton Hall and dances un- der the committee's supervision at different centres of the Territory. His Excellency, the Governor-Gen- eral, Lord Stonehaven, during his recent unofficial visit, evinced great interest in the work of Burns Club. It has ...
BOY SCOUTS AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
BOY SCOUTS AT CANBERRA. By One or Them. &nbsp; The movement is progressing satis- factorily, and it is hoped that within a few months six well established troops will be functioning in Can- berra. Duntroon will soon start- ing, and Mr. C. W. Guthrie, who is the Scoutmaster, will arrange for a meeting with the Commandant, Dun- troon, to finalise matters. Then there are to be troops for Eastlake, &nbsp; Molonglo, Causeway, and Ainslie. This comprises the six troops. On Sunday, 6th Dec., the Scouts attended church service at Canberra Church. Arrangements are being made for the big camp, when the N.S.W. Scouts will be our guests. It is estimated that the cost will amount to about £105. As the Scouts are distributing &nbsp; this among them, visitors included, the cost works out at about 1/9 per head, but probably, a charge of 2/- per head will be made for transport charges, if any, and any surplus after the camp will be distributed. Mr. Guthrie has already taught ...
