COLONEL GOODWIN'S RETIREMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
COLONEL GOODWIN'S RETIRE- MENT. We regret that owing to want of space we were unable last issue to &nbsp; give a detailed account of a dinner &nbsp; given to Colonel Goodwin on his re- tirement from the Federal Govern- ment service. The lessees of graz- ing properties tendered him a dinner at the Hotel Canberra and presented him with a solid silver salver as a mark of their appreciation and re- cognition of his interest in them and the desire evinced during his years of administration of the lands of the Federal Territory which came under &nbsp; his control as Commonwealth Sur- veyor-General. &nbsp; Colonel Legge, of Weetangera, late Commandant of Duntroon Mili- tary College, presided, having on his right the guest of the evening, and on his left Mr. C. H. Gorman, third Commissioner, who has taken over the departments over which Mr. Goodwin exercised control. Speeches of a highly compliment- &nbsp; ary character were made by Messrs. Tickner, M...
DINNER TO THE EMPLOYEES OF J.B. YOUNG LTD. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
DINNER TO THE EMPLOYEES OF J. B. YOUNG LTD. A unique function took place at &nbsp; the Hotel Canberra on Friday even- ing, December 11th, when Mr. J. B. Young and the Directors of the firm of J. B. Young Ltd. entertained the employees of the various branches of their Emporium recently erected at Eastlake. Unique for two reasons, that the sincere expressions of cor- diality and the good feeling existing between employee and employer was very marked; secondly, it was the anniversary of the purchase of the present business block twelve months ago, December 12th, 1924, and in that short period the up-to-date building, its internal fittings, show- cases, and counters, etc., as one speaker said, could not be excelled for utility and adaptability, in any similar building in the commercial world. Though much time, and thought, has in the past been de- voted to making the premises of the firm in Queanbeyan artistic, and at- tractive, as much as business facili- ties would allow, the ...

TELOPEA PARK PUBLIC SCHOOL. SPEECH DAY, 1925 HEADMASTER'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
TELOPEA PARK PUBLIC SCHOOL. SPEECH DAY, 1925 HEADMASTER'S REPORT. Mr. Chairman, &nbsp; Ladies and Gentlemen, — It is with pleasure that I pre- sent the following report upon the activities and progress of the Telopea Park Public School for the year 1925. Continued Growth.— Opening in October 1923 with but 54 pupils, we reached a total of 255 at the conclu- sion of 1924, while our present en- rolment now stands at 412. &nbsp; &nbsp; 'This represents an average increase of four new pupils each school week. Since we opened over 560 pupils have passed through our books. This &nbsp; means that approximately 150 pupils have. left this school. Thus it will be seen that the population of Can- berra is of a very floating nature. Increased Accommodation.— Dur- ing the year six new class rooms have been added, increasing the accommo- dation from four rooms to ten. This will provide for 500 children, and despite the projected construction of a new school at Ainsl...
First Annual School Sports Day. VISIT BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 21 December 1925
First Annual School Sports Day. VISIT BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL A fine day, somewhat on the hot side, about twelve hundred happy young folk, and willing workers to keep them going in various races, with kind and energetic ladies tend- ing to their appetites, presented an &nbsp; &nbsp; animated spectacle at the Acton Sports Ground on Saturday, 12th December. The Telopea Park School &nbsp; Parents and Citizens' Association, having postponed their annual picnic from Empire Day, which usually is inclement, decided to hold the day in warmer weather. Mr. Butters, hear- ing of the decision, and that at the &nbsp; official opening of the school a day's sport for all the children attending schools on the Federal Territory was arranged, offered material assistance if such a day could be arranged. A well-attended meeting responded to the call, and with Mr. H. M. Rolland &nbsp; as President, Mrs. Chas Francis, Vice-President, and Mr. A. K. Mu...

WITTY PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
WITTY PARS. She: "That last high note was D flat." He: "That's what I thought, but I didn't like to say so." "So Brown's taking a course in First Aid; is he any good at it Doc- tor?" "Oh, a little hasty at times. A man was nearly drowned yesterday and the first thing Brown did was to throw a glass of water in his face." The family were at supper when the vicar called. Hurriedly the mo- ther put the beer bottle under the table. "Good morning, sir," she &nbsp; said, "come in, isn't it a cold even- ing?" "Yes," replied the Vicar, "I think we'll have some more hail." "I don't think you will," said the irrepressible four-year-old Willie, "Mother hid it under the table when she saw you coming here." An old man from the bush who had not visited the city for many years, one day made up his mind to go to the metropolis. He found a private boarding house, and there, for the first time in his life he saw a young girl doing gymnastics for the amusement of some children. After gazing at ...
The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. JANUARY 25, 1926. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
The Federal Capital Pioneer, The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. JANUARY 25, 1926 &nbsp; We wish all our readers "A pros- perous New Year." To-day "The Pioneer" starts its second year of publication. We gratefully acknowledge message of congratulation and approval received since last issue. "The Pioneer" stands for a fair deal for Canberra. The past administrators, prior to the advent of the Federal Capital Com- missioners had an uphill task. They were at the mercy of politicians, hampered through lack of funds to carry out even a portion of the con- structive work they knew was abso- lutely necessary. Every time they requested capital to carry on and de- velop the city-to-be, though they had the services of the Advisory Board to mediate on their behalf, when it reached the floor of Parlia- ment House in Melbourne, politici- ans, who were in the majority of cases anti-Canberraites, ruthlessly cheesepared the estimates, hindered progress, and disheart...
HISTORICAL LITERARY GEM. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
HISTORICAL LITERARY GEM. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Editor, three years ago, while on holiday in Sydney, sauntered into a second-hand book stall. In a box of books—all marked "one shilling" —he picked up from the medley of subjects, grave and gay, a time-worn book of 284 pages entitled: "The Australian Sketch Book," by James Martin, "A student of the Sydney College." The author published it on August 10, 1838. It was printed and published by James Tegg, George Street. James Martin tells us he was in- spired to write it through reading and re-reading a copy of "Washing- ton Irving's Sketch Book." The author, in his introduction, says:— "I have now but attained my eigh- teenth year, and youth, and inex- &nbsp; perience will plead strongly in palli- ation of whatever errors and inac- curacies may be discovered in my compositions. The fact, also, of this work being the first literary produc- tion that has ever emanated from the pen of an individual educated in Australia o...
NAMING CENTRES IN FEDERAL CITY [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
NAMING CENTRES IN FEDERAL CITY The Secretary of the Royal Aus- tralian Historical Society has re- ceived the following communication from the secretary to the Prime Min- ister:—"I am directed to acknow- &nbsp; ledge the receipt of your letter of the 5th January, in advising that your Society is desirous that the names of pioneers associated with the early history of Australia should be commemorated in the naming of various centres in and about the Federal City, Canberra. The views of the Royal Australian Historical Society in this regard have been noted and will receive considera- ion."
MEETING POSSIBLE AT CANBERRA THIS YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
MEETING POSSIBLE AT CAN- BERRA THIS YEAR. Although the Governor-General's policy speech, at the opening of the present session of Federal Parlia- ment, stated that arrangements had been made to transfer the seat of Government to Canberra early in 1927, the Canberra Commission's second annual report, tabled in the House of Representatives, says that it would he possible to comply with the Government's original desire that Parliament should meet at the capital about the middle of this year. Generally the Commission's report tells of a tale of intensive work. Progress is reported in the construc- tion of all buildings. For the six months ended June 30, 1925, the Commission's expenditure under all headings was £500,269, as against £350,099 for the previous six months. The Commission suggests that a decision by the Commonwealth Bank on the financing of home building in the Territory is urgently needed. It adds that in the building of all structures by private enterprise the ideal of a ga...
PROGRESS OF WORKS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
PROGRESS OF WORKS With the transfer of the Seat of &nbsp; Government to be effected early in 1927, Canberra is now entering the &nbsp; last year of the development neces- sary before the transfer can be ef- fected satisfactorily. Much remains yet to be accomplished, but all acti- vities are proceeding according to &nbsp; programme, and well up to schedule time. &nbsp; In the official reports on the con- &nbsp; struction of Parliament House, the &nbsp; words "complete" and "nearly com- &nbsp; plete" are becoming increasingly frequent. The whole of the exterior of the main block has received its final coating of white cement. In- ternally the plastering of walls and &nbsp; ceilings is about nine-tenths finished. The flooring throughout with the &nbsp; exception of special wood block pav- ceilings is about nine-tenths finished. portion will be commenced during &nbsp; the month.

AN OMINOUS NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
AN OMINOUS NOTE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; During the elections of last year, New South Wales State elections, and the recent Federal election, on every platform Mr. Lang and his Ministers, and Mr. Matt. Charlton and his fol- lowers, in no uncertain manner re- pudiated the Communist leader Jock Garden. Garden showed his antagonism to the Constituted Labour selected can- didates by opposing them and nom- inating against them. With this knowledge to guide us, is it not logi- cal to ask, "How can Unionists obey &nbsp; the latest command of this self-con- fessed Bolshevic?" A circular has been issued bearing the imprint "Trades and Labour Council of N.S.W. Secretary J. S. Garden," and intimates that:—"A special con- ference will be held on February 20th, 1926, at 2.30 p.m. in the Trades Hall, Sydney." It also states "The conference will deal with one of the most pressing problems of the hour, "The attitude of the Trade Union movement to the Labour Party." "The...
AMERICA'S COLD SNAP. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
AMERICA'S COLD SNAP. When the officers from the Ameri- can fleet visited Canberra last winter, there was a nippy wind blowing, such a wind as one often meets at that time of the year in Bourke St. Mel- bourne, or on Circular Quay, Sydney. One of the officers remarked how cold it was. If he is within hail of New York he must have wished himself back at Canberar at Xmas. The cable tells us that on Boxing Day in New York and many parts of America a cold wave struck the city causing deaths and much suffering. When the icy blizzard struck New York the thermometer fell to 18 degrees below zero, while at Chicago (the city the late Sir George Dibbs "damn- ed" it fell to two degrees below zero and heavy loss of live is predicted. In future when critics refer to Can- berra as cold refer them to New York and Chicago.
SUGGESTED HONOUR ROLL AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 January 1926
SUGGESTED HONOUR ROLL AT CANBERRA. The war is still taking its toll of life. Figures to be submitted to the &nbsp; Federal Cabinet by the Repatriation Department shows that, since the armistice, 20,000 Diggers have died as a result of war injuries. During the year ended June, 1925, 2037 former soldiers died, and 15,258 new pensions were granted. Alto- gether 70,000 soldiers' pensions are now being paid. The Returned Soldiers' League has suggested that the names of the soldiers who have passed away since the war, as a result of war injuries, should be engraved on the memorial to be erected at Canberra, together with the names of the men who lost their lives during the fighting.
