SCOTCH CONCERT AT CAUSEWAY HALL, EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 27 February 1926
SCOTCH CONCERT AT CAUSEWAY HALL, EASTLAKE. To finish up "the Highland Gather ing," Canberra Burns Club arranged a splendid programme for the evening. The newly erected hall at "The Cause way" was crowded to its utmost, and many could not gain admittance, which the committee regret. Electrical ef- fects were a feature, and were manipu- lated by Mr. Beale. Mrs. W. Mitchell and Miss Kermode acted as accom- panists, and Mrs. J. Kennedy played an overture. The chairman, Mr. James McKinnon, president of Burns Club, with vice- presidents J. H. Goodwin and A. K. Murray, and the Rev. A. McVittie (of Newcastle), occupied seats on the plat- form. The concert commenced with a "Piping Selection" by Pipe-Major Young, and was enthusiastically re- ceived. Space forbids detailed report, but Messrs. A. Brown, A. Alder, T. Mur- phy, and A. McDonald were recalled for their vocal items, as were Mrs. W. Mitchell, Miss Gardner, and Miss Allen. Mr. J. Traynor was as popular as ever in his monologue, and by...
NEWS IN BRIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 27 February 1926
NEWS IN BRIEF. &nbsp; &nbsp; Two aeroplanes now make a special ascent every day at Duxford, Cam- bridgeshire, for the purpose of report- ing the weather. Of the "Big Bertha" type of gun, which was used to bombard Paris in the Great War, seven were made, but only three were actually fired. Of the enormous quantities of her- rings caught off the English coasts, only 5 per cent. is consumed at home. The remainder is exported to various countries. One oyster will produce as many as one million new ones in a year, but of these more than 99 per cent., from various causes, perish in infancy. Within the next ten years the motor cars in Britain are expected by Sir Henry P. Maybury, Director-General of Roads, to increase till there will be one car to every twenty of the population. In an address on the subject of spirit guardianship, the Rev. G. Vale Owen told a story of John Wesley, who, having in his possession a sum of money, was waylaid by thieves, whose intentions were fr...

THE AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL CAPITAL LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
THE AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL CAPITAL LEAGUE. The following are extracts from mat- ters dealt with at the last meeting of the League:— Sir Arthur Rickard, K.B.E., a mem- ber of the executive and a valued sub- scriber to the League since its incep- tion, was granted leave of absence. He has left Sydney on an extended trip abroad. The president, Alderman William &nbsp; Brooks, M.L.C., reported having seen the Prime Minister, who expressed the opinion that Parliament would meet at Canberra not later than March of next year. Mr. Brooks said that the work at the capital was being ex- pedited to bring about the transfer of the capital from Melbourne to Can- berra, and he thought that before twelve months hence the seat of Ad- ministration would be functioning at Canberra. Mr. T. M. Shakespeare, M.L.C., gave some interesting facts about the popu- lation of the Federal capital area and expressed the opinion that early next year there should be an additional 5000 people living at Canberra. ...
GERMAN TOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
A report, not intended for Austra- &nbsp; lian eyes, has been furnished by the toy makers of Germany, which is far from pleasing to those whose sos and brothers gave their lives to free us from the mailed fist of Germany and &nbsp; prevented the Huns dominating the world. A Hun is always a Hun-like the leopard, he cannot change his &nbsp; spots, or his nature-brutal, arrogant, and remorselessly revengeful. In the German commercial traveller's grip, in one hand, is the cheap German-made goods. In the other, he is ready to carry at any time a dose of poison gas or flamenwerfer. The report states- and, mark you, issued from Germany: "Among the world's countries only Australia and New Zealand have in- creased their purchases of German- made toys." The report states that German toy exports from January to June, 1925, was £1,730,825. "Aussie" wounded and blind sol- diers had their splendid Aussie-made toys left on their hands. Merchants and importers who boasted of...
TELOPEA PARK. School Sport. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
TELOPEA PARK. School Sport. On Saturday, 13th March, a cricket team consisting of 12 boys from the Yass District School, under the charge of Mr. Brigden, the headmaster, jour- neyed to Canberra to engage the Te- lopea Park boys in a friendly match. The local boys looked forward to the match with keen anticipation, as they hoped to regain "the ashes" which had been wrested from them on their visit to Yass a fortnight before. The match commenced on the Te- lopea Park school ground at 11 a.m., the Yass captain winning the toss and sending the home team to bat. After a good display of batting, the Telopea Park boys were all out for 110 runs by 12.20 p.m., when an ad- journment was made for lunch. The two teams were conveyed by car to the Hotel Canberra, where they enjoyed an excellent repast in the private dining-room, after which a brief speech of welcome to the visi- tors was made by Fred. Hammond, and responded to by Ralston Tice- hurst, the captains of the Telopea Park and Yass team...

The chair- man of the Federal Capital Commis- sion, Mr. J. H. Butters, will perform the ceremony. A working bee on Saturday worked hard to improve the range ready for the opening day.

LORRY HORSE BOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
LORRY HORSE BOXES. The new horse boxes designed and built by Nom Chong Bros., Braidwood, and mounted on the chassis of their Leyland lorry, created a lot of interest recently, when they brought six race horses from Tarago. Horseowners de- clared that the horses travelled easier than on the railway. The structure is said to be the first of its kind in N.S.W., and quite probably in Au- tralia. When the lorry is needed for other work the whole arrangement is lifted off the chassis bodily. &nbsp;

DOINGS AMONG RETURNED SOLDIERS AND SAILORS AT CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
DOINGS AMONG RETURNED SOL- DIERS AND SAILORS AT CANBERRA (From J. E. G.) It affords me great pleasure to be in a position to be able to bring before your readers the fact that there is such a thing in Canberra as "The Old Comrades' Association." It is an as- sociation of ex-servicemen, brought into being for the purpose of promot- ing the closer touch of comradeship and promoting a better social feeling among the ex-servicemen of the Fede- ral Territory and its surrounding dis- tricts. Although the Old Comrades' Asso- ciation is only in its infancy, we hope to see it grow and keep on growing. We have an object in view, and that object is a long way off, and only by hard work and loyalty can we achieve what we have set out to do. Our aim is to keep our members together and to establish a clubroom, in which we hope to include a billiard room, lib- rary, writing room, and social hall, "outdoor" cricket pitch, tennis court, and bowling green, so by the time we get settled down in what w...
The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. MARCH 25, 1926. THE NAME "CANBERRA." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. MARCH 25, 1926. THE NAME "CANBERRA." Thirteen years after the naming of Australia's Federal City, an attempt is being made to give the name a different pronunciation to that in vogue which has been in use for gen- erations. When on March 12th, 1912, Lady Denman stood on what the offi- cial records call "Kurrajong Hill," and named the Federal capital "Canberra," she emphatically stated: "I name the capital of Australia, Can-berra." Mr. Henry Selkirk, in his work "The &nbsp; Origins of Canberra," states:—"In dealing with the question of Lieut. J. J. Moore's grant at 'Canberry' (now Acton) the application following on a warrant from Sir Thos. Brisbane for a further grant (by purchase) of 1000 acres, dated May 5th, 1925, but for some reason he had not acted on this warrant for land at 'Baw Baw,' but now by letter dated December 16th, 1826, to the Colonial Secretary, asks to be allowed to sec...
CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. The meeting of the above club to receive reports on the recent High- land gathering met in Westlake Hall recently, but as all accounts were not to hand, a full report will be given at the next meeting. Mr. Walter Scott, the president for 1925 and one of the founders of Burns Club with Mrs. Scott, was invited to be present. The new president, Mr. James McKin- non, in a happy speech, asked Mr. and Mrs. Scott to accept from the club tokens of the appreciation of the club for their work in helping the formation and carrying out many successful functions in 1925. The pre- sentation took the form of a gold badge of the club to the late president and a gold badge brooch to Mrs. Scott. Mr. Scott suitably responded. Later on two most important motions were passed and added to the constitution which will have a good effect on the working of the club. On the first: "That only those of Scottish birth or Scot- tish descent be admitted as members of Burns Club," a ballot was ...
CANBERRA FOOTBALL. Federal Rovers United. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 March 1926
CANBERRA FOOTBALL. Federal Rovers United. The annual meeting was held in the Westridge Hall on Tuesday night, March 16. There was an attendance of 32. Mr. A. Roberts presided in the chair owing to the loss of our president, Mr. W. Murphy, who has gone to Sydney to settle down. The hon. secretary (Mr. L. G. Bethell), in his report, said that tak- ing the year all round, the club had had a very successful season, winning three cups besides being the owners of one presented to the club by Mr. L. Howell. At the latter end of the season the club was defeated and lost one (the Richardson). Seven matches were played for it, the club winning three, losing three, and playing one draw, so the honours were fairly even. Owing to misfortune in the last match, some of the club's players be- ing unavailable, the cup was lost. During the season the club had some good trips, visiting the various towns, Yass, Crookwell, Goulburn, and Gun- dagai. At Yass the locals were beaten by 19 to 9, and the Fasc...
