The Making of a City, AND THE GROWTH OF J. B. YOUNG LTD. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

The Making of a City, AND THE GROWTH OF J. B. YOUNG LTD. The history of the old cities of the world is a revelation of want of foresight and lack of design for future development that has re- sulted in slum areas adjacent to pomp, pride, and luxurious mansions or commercial marts. With this knowledge, the Federal Govern- ments, who have had to deal with the question of the design for a Federal capital city in Australia, profiting by their knowledge of the incongruous massing of rich, and poor, busi- ness and residential bodies in a heterogeneous mixture, in the capital cities of Europe and America, wisely decided to build a city where each section would be distinctly marked and access to and from each centre would be through avenues made beautiful with flora and attractive garden plots. Thus we find on entering the Federal City of Canberra, from Queanbeyan by the south- east road, a business centre at Eastlake, flourishing with business premises of every class necessary for the requ...

AN AMERICAN VIEW OF CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

AN AMERICAN VIEW OP CANBERRA. The following is from an account of a visit of a correspondent, published in the U.S.A. "Detroit News." The statement of "the school scholarless, the houses tenantless, and the city a shell," is an exhibition of deliberate misrepresentation which helps to confirm the belief that what is published in the Press of America must' be taken with a grain of salt : "Wholly apart from its political significance -as a rather amusing picture of a little old bantam hen bravely trying to spread protect- ing wings over the brood of full-grown fight- ing cocks that have wandered far from the maternal coop-the forthcoming tour, officially announced, of the Duke and Duchess of York on the great battle cruiser Renown, about New Zealand and Australia, should have a cer- tain interest for good citizens everywhere. "For the main object-we are told-of the ducal cruise is that their Royal Highnesses may officiate at the opening, on May 9 next, of the first session of the Parl...

IMPORTANT LETTER BY HAMILTON HUME—EXPLORER. Discovered In Ararat Museum. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 21 April 1927

IMPORTANT LETTER BY HAMILTON HUME-EXPLORER. Discovered In Ararat Museum. Cr. J. Moore, of Ararat (V.) states that a visitor to the town, who had been looking over their municipal museum, discovered a letter which he said was worth £1,000. The letter was pasted on a piece of cardboard and was tacked up on the wall. It had also been seen by a lady, who claimed that it was worth a considerable sum of money. The letter was signed "Hamilton Hume," and, although it was not addressed to any person, it had reference to John Batman, who was the first European to visit Geelong. He had been informed that the Public Library, Melbourne, had been searching for this letter. The same party said there, was a Greek Bible in the museum worth £100. The town clerk, fearing that publicity would endanger the safety of the letter, immediately went to the museum, and took possession ol the letter. The letter was beautifully written, but ow- ing to the two pages being pasted on a piece of cardboard, side No....

PRESENTING THE KEY. Prime Minister's Speech. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 May 1927

PRESENTING THE KEY. Prime Minister's Speech.

FIRST AND LAST SPEECH IN FEDERAL HOUSE, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 May 1927

FIRST AND LAST SPEECH IN FEDERAL HOUSE, MELBOURNE. It is a curious coincidence that the first speech made by a Federal member in the Houses of Parliament in Melbourne was made by Mr. W. H. Groom, whilst the last was made hy his son, Sir Littleton Groom, as Speaker. Mr. W. H. Groom was the oldest parliamentarian in the first Federal Parlia- ment, so that the political history of father and son cover most of the period of respon- sible government in Australia. Only two members of the H House of Representatives have sat continuously from the opening of the first Parliament to the present time-Mr. Hughes and Mr. Watkins. Mr. Watkins sat for Newcastle all the time, but Mr. Hughes has represented three electorates. Sir Little- ton Groom is the only other member of the House who has sat in ail the Parliaments, but he was elected to the first Parliament at a by-election following the death of his father. Senator Pearce is the only original Senator who has sat continuously.

AEROPLANE CRASH. Not Kilted. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 May 1927

AEROPLANE CRASH. Not Kilted. During the naval and military review on the afternoon of the opening day, the cere- mony was marred by an unfortunate fatality through a 'plane crashing some distance in front of Parliament House. The pilot, Fly- ing Officer F. E. Ewen, 30 years of age, was killed. The deceased officer suffered a frac- ture of both arms, the left leg and internal injuries. He moved slightly when removed from the broken machine and was taken to Canberra Hospital, where he died without re- gaining consciousness. He was an old Dun- troon College cadet, and was popular among his college mates and with the Air Force. He was a native of Eden, which many rightly claim to be the natural and safe sea port to Canberra.

CHARMED WITH CANBERRA. In the old days, when he had the repu- tation of being one of the finest orators Queensland ever knew, they familiarly termed him "Jimmy.*' Now he is the Hon. James Blair, Chief Justice of Queensland. On his return from Canberra he said:-"I saw a magnificent spectacle, which I would not have missed for a year of my life. Both my wife and myself were keenly appreciative of the courtesy extended by the Government.'' He admired the location and surroundings of the new capital. The pine trees above Canberra revealed wonderful results for seven years. Here was a lesson to Australia on the value of afforestation. A Russian physician, named Boris, Married Doris, the pride of the chorus. With twins they were blessed, And I'm here to attest, They now have a wee "Doc" and Doris! -Judge.

THE FIRST MP. TO RESIDE AT CANBERRA Dr. L. W. Nott, M.H.R., for the Herbert district, Queensland, has permanently taken up his residence at Canberra, therefore he becomes the historic pioneer member-as far as the first Parliament is concerned-to oc- cupy a home within the Federal capital. Dr. Nott, who defeated Mr. Theodore, ex Premier of Queensland, in the latter's own electorate for the Herbert seat, has announced that he feels he can better serve the electors of his constituency, right at the seat of Gov- ernment, Canberra, and periodically visit his electorate whenever duty calls or needs re- quire it. Mrs. Nott and family are quite set- tled down and, as Dr. Nott has his nameplate out, he is also beginning his practice here. Dr. Nott will be one of the party to ac- company the Prime Minister (Mr. Bruce) at the end of June in his visit to Queensland, including the Herbert.

CANBERRA COMMISSION. Colonel T.J. Thomas Chosen Temporarily. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 May 1927

CANBERRA COMMISSION. Colonel T. 3* Thomas Chosen Temporarily. To fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. C. H. Gorman, the Federal Ministry has appointed Colonel T. J. Thomas, finance mem- ber of the Naval Board, a temporary member of the Federal Capital Commission. In . making the announcement the Prime Minister (Mr. Bruce) said that under the pro- visions of the Seat of Government (Adminis- tration) Act, 1924-26, the successor to Mr. Gor- man could be appointed only for the un- expired portion of the term of Mr. Gorman's appointment, which would, in the ordinary course, have ended on November 2, 1927.

THE ORIGIN OF AINSLIE SUBURB. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 May 1927

THE ORIGIN OF AINSLIE SUBURB. Among the earliest settlers at Majura, with- in Federal Capital Territory were the Mac- Intosh family, who came straight from the Highlands of Scotland, nearly seventy years ago. Mr. Walter McIntosh, one of the sons of these pioneers, recently passed away at the age of 62 years, after a long illness. We tender our sincere sympathy to Mrs. McIntosh and family, and to Mr. Wm. McIntosh in their sad bereavement. The twTo brothers, the late Walter and his remaining brother William, were born at Majura, not far from Duntroon Military Col- lege. Up to the age of 12 years they did not attempt to learn English, but spoke the Celtic or Gaelic language. Some weeks ago I learn- ed from Mr. Wm. McIntosh the facts con- cerning the origin of the name Ainslie, for the suburb of Ainslie is growing rapidly Incidentally Mr. McIntosh, after over 60 years' residence in the vicinity, stated that he had no recollection of a blacks' camp near Mount Ainslie. Alluding to the dis...
