McCaudle the Roamer HIS START IN AUSTRALIA. (Continued from Previous Issues.) [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

McCaudle the Roamer HIS START IN AUSTRALIA. By YARRUM. (Continued from Previous Issues,) During a quiet evening with McCaudle and finding him in a reminiscent mood, I thought I would draw him out on his start at bush life in Australia. "How did you come to drift into the bush. Mac?" I asked. [For the benefit of new readers, allow me to repeat that McCaudle-a ficticious name was a Trinity College, Dublin, man, expelled for "ragging" the son of a titled family. Sent to Australia by his kinsfolk, he received a quarterly remittance which melted quickly at bush towns and shanties in western N.S.W., about JBourke and over the Queensland bor- der. Inland Australia is commonly termed «The Bush."]. "I had to drift. I had no choice,'' he re- plied. "When I landed from an Orient liner at Sydney in the mid eighties, I had visions of easy jobs awaiting me. I took the advice of one of the officers and put up at the Royal Hotel, in George Street. The following day found me in the private bar with ...

MUSEUM OF ZOOLOGY. Collection for Canberra. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

MUSEUM OF ZOOLOGY. Collection for Canberra. The "British Medical Journal" gives special notice to the visit of Professor Colin Mac- kenzie, of Melbourne, in connection with the foundation of the National Museum of Zoo- logy at Canberra, and pays a tribute to his gifts of specimens. There is nothing in the world to be compared with what is being as- sembled at Canberra, it is stated. In a lead- ing article the journal says:-"The Govern- ment is to be congratulated on its decision to establish a eentre of comparative anatomy as the foundation of all medical sciences. We hope that Professor Mackenzies lead will en- courage Australian wealthy citizens to endow research work in the interests of humanity.,, After a brilliant career as an orthopaedic surgeon, Professor Colin Mackenzie, who was educated at the Melbourne University, retired from practice in 1924 to give the whole of his time to the study of the comparative ana- tomy of the indigenous animals of Australia, from which he had p...

COST OF CANBERRA. Expenditure of £7,890,000. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

COST OF CANBERRA. Expenditure of £7,890,000. Important statements relating to the expen- diture incurred in building the Federal Capi- tal were made by a senior official of the Can- berra Commission to the Melbourne "Argus" recently. The figures quoted indicate that the peak period with regard to public works was during the present financial year, when huge sums were spent to complete the first section of the building programme in readi- ness for the Royal visit and the opening of the Houses of Parliament. It was further in- dicated that the preliminary work in connec- tion with the framing of estimates for the next financial year had been completed, but details of the Commission's intentions will not be disclosed until the bill of proposed costs has received the endorsement of Parlia- ment. The work of building Canberra was taken over by the Federal Capital Commission on January 1, 1925, but from 1912 to that date an extensive programme was carried out by the Department of Home Aff...

FEDERAL CAPITAL FORESTRY. Steady Development Since 1913. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

FEDERAL CAPITAL FORESTRY. Steady Development Since 1913. The Federal Capital Foresty records con- tain interesting figures relating to affores- tation activities. Most of the hills surround- ing the city were before Federation well . wooded, but the development of the grazing industry resulted in wholesale clearances. The intensive development of Canberra has re- sulted in the depletion of forest areas, and the Federal Capital Commission has had to pay attention to reafforestation work. Official figures show that the work has been attacked seriously, and, although climatic conditions have presented difficulties, the work so far has been highly successful. Reafforestation work was begun in 1913, and has been continued consistently since. It is the intention of the Commission to carry on forest planting from Mount Stromlo across the Molonglo River to Black Mountain* Many distinct areas around the city are now re- ceiving attention. About 20,250 trees, mostly kurrajongs, have been plan...

CANBERRA SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

CANBERRA SCHOOLS. The Minister for Home and Territories (Mr. C. W. C. Marr) has been advised by the Federal Capital Commission that the Telopea Park School is to be extended in order to provide additional facilities for se- condary education there. The school is also to be subdivided for primary and secondary courses. From July 1 a separate infants' school will be established at Telopea Park, and provision has also been made for an in- fants* school at Ainslie, where a building which will accommodate 250 children of the primary school standard up to the sixth class is nearing completion. If there is sufficient demand for high school education next year, arrangements can be made to establish a separate high school at Telopea Park, in the existing buildings, and the infants' department can be conveniently transferred to Ainslie centre, where there will eventually be accommodation for 500 children. The scheme for a separate high school at Blandfordia has not yet been sufficiently de- v...

Honoring the Pioneers. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

Honoring the Pioneers. Those who take a keen interest in research for early documentary evidence of the work of the pioneers of Australia, who laid the foundations of our national wealth and pro- gress through their unselfish labors in the fields of exploration, agricultural and pastoral development, importation of live stock, and the initiation of secondary industries, are gratified at the announcement that, at last, the names of pioneers shall find a place in pro- minent centres on the map of our Federal Capital City. The decision was made per medium of the press of the capital cities by the Federal Capital Commissioners. Abori- ginal names are also to be given to some of the places on the 900 miles of Federal Capital Territory. It is earnestly to be hoped that modern names will be the last thought of. What a mental roll of honor rises before us when we think of the zealous and untiring work, without hope of applause or reward, of such men as Flinders, Bass, Oxley, Evans, Sturt, M...

ANGLICAN CHURCH PATRIARCH. Death of Rev. S. Hungerford. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

ANGLICAN CHURCH PATRIARCH. Death of Rev. S. Hungerford. The Rev. Septimus Hungerford, whose death occurred at Cremorne (Sydney), a few days ago, would have reached the age of 102 years if he had lived until August 12. His life was filled with romantic interest, and his wonderful memory enabled him to carry his many friends back to days that have now passed into history. He was born in England in 1825, and was brought to Australia by his parents while still very young. Mr. Hungerford, as a young man, was a law clerk in West Maitland, but he decided to enter the ministry, and was ordained by the Bishop of Newcastle (Dr. Tyrell) in 1854. He was appointed to the parish of Armidale. After an incumbency of 21 years at Armidale, Mr. Hungerford went to Sydney, and was for some time at Miller's Point and Asfifield. He assisted Canon Taylor at Newtown, in 1879, and removed to St. Thomas's, Enfield, and re- mained there until 1895. In that year Mr. Hungerford retired from parochial work and se...

FOUNDING AN ARTS SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

FOUNDING AN ARTS SOCIETY. A meeting which should have future his- toric interest, was held at Hotel Canberra on June 28 for the purpose of inaugurating a movement to form a Society of Arts. The convener, Mr. D. E. Limburg (architect), is to be congratulated on the result of his ini- tiative. At his request, Mr. H. M. Rolland (chief architect, F.C.C.), presided, and out- lined the objects desired. The time was op- portune to form A society, but Art covered a wide scope, and it would be necessary to de- clare the scope and objects of their Society and to encourage the various sections of art to develop into a body which would mean much to those who were interested and estab- lish a society worthy of Art at their Federal Capital. Mr. R. A. Broinowski (Usher Black Rod, Parliament House), supporting the proposal, emphasised the need for such a movement and the necessity for development of the in- tellectual branches, such as poetry, literature, drama, and fine arts. There were many socie...

CANBERRA HIGHLAND SOCIETY AND BURNS CLUB. A Wireless Set For Canberra Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

CANBERRA HIGHLAND SOCIETY AND BURNS CLUB. A Wireless Set For Canberra Hospital. Mention was made in last issue of the movement, originating from the above Society, to erect at Canberra a Burns memorial to take the form of a hail with a statue of Scot- land's National Bard m the foreground. We mentioned that subscriptions could be for- warded to the president, hon. treasurer or hon. secretary. Mr. David Rogers, of Syd- ney, a subscriber to our magazine, has for- warded a donation of £5/5/- as a result of our notice. We hope other readers of Scottish birth will follow his generous example. Since the inauguration of this Scottish S'ociety, we can point to its practical worth at the Federal Capital. Though only a little over three years old, this Society has raised, by Highland gatherings and concerts, the sum of £1,670. It gave the proceeds to different charitable objects. Mainly through its efforts, a piano was purchased for Can- berra's first permanent school-Telopea Park. The Societ...

EXPENSIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

EXPENSIVE. It is officially estimated that the move to Canberra will cost about £60,000 a year in special allowances to enable civil servants to meet the increased cost of living. Allowances vary from £39 to £76, with £50 as a fair aver- age. There will be about 300 civil servants transferred to the Federal Capital by the end of the year, and their special allowances will run into £15,000.

ANOTHER DISCOVERER. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

ANOTHER DISCOVERER. This is from a New Zealand paper:-"It is interesting, in view of the celebrations at Can . berra, to know that the site for the Federal Capital was first chosen by Mr. J. C. Watson when he was Labor Prime Minister, and when on a fishing expedition to the district with other politicians. Mr. Watson was a native of Weston, near Oamaru, and served his ap- prenticeship as a compositor on the staff of the 'Oamaru Mail.' '' Mr. Watson worked as a compositor on the "Queanbeyan Age'' in his younger days for Mr. John Gale, who instructed him on many Canberra points.

CANBERRA WAR MEMORIAL. Designs Exhibited In Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

CANBERRA WAR MEMORIAL. Desunís Exhibited In Melbourne. An exhibition of the compétitive designs for the Australian war memorial at Canberra has been opened in the Exhibition Building, Melbourne. Five hundred drawings, repre- senting the work of 70 competitors, are on view. The display has been arranged by the Institute of Architects, and has been made possible by the Federal Capital Commission at Canberra. The conditions provided that the cost of the memorial should not exceed £250,000. The adjudicators (Sir Charles Rosenthal, Profes- sor L. Wilkinson, and Mr. J. S. Murdoch) considered that only one of the designs sub- mitted could be carried into effect for that sum. The report of the assessors recommends that two of the competitors be asked to col- laborate in the preparation of an additional design. As an act of grace, the memorial authorities have paid an honorarium of 100 guineas to the authors of 12 selected designs.
