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

TRAINS AT CANBERRA. Starting from about September, the Rail- way Commissioners intend to inaugurate a much improved train service connecting Can- berra with the outside world. Goulburn will be made a kind of clearing house for Can- berra passengers travelling to or from the State capitals. In addition to the present ex- presses and main line mail trains, several ad- ditional trains will be run-some of them through trains direct from Sydney to Can- berra and other branch-li ne trains which will be made up at Goulburn. One train from Canberra will arrive in S'ydney just before the midday passenger, and another will leave for Canberra at night at a convenient hour for those who wish to see a theatre before leaving the metropolis.

THE NECESSITY FOR CANBERRA. Sir Littleton Groom Summarises Reasons. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

THE NECESSITY FOR CANBERRA. Sir Littleton Groom Summarises Reasons. Speaking recently at a conference of the Toowoomba branch of the C.E.M.S., by re- quest, as to the reasons for the establishment of a Federal city, apart from the capital cities of Australia, the Hon. Sir Littleton Groom, K.C.M.G., K.C., Speaker of the House of Representatives, said that in the first place it had to be established, because the Australian required it; but there were valid reasons for placing the existing provision in the Australian requiring it to be so estab- lished. He would summarise them. (1). Because of inter-colonial jealousies. The view expressed by the late Sir Edmund Barton at the Adelaide session of the Con- vention on April 20th, 1897:-"I am inclined to the opinion myself that it would be a good thing, in order to avoid inter-colonial jealousies, that the site of the capital should not be in one of the present centres. But subject to that limitation of opinion we shall do well to allow the...

CANBERRA AFFAIRS. Evolving Name Plan. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

CANBERRA AFFAIRS. Evolving Name Plan. Important matters concerning Canberra were discussed in Melbourne by the chairman of the Federal Capital Commission (Sir John Butters) with Federal Ministers at the end of June. The modified plan for artificial lakes in front of Parliament House to cost £50,000 will probably be placed before Parliament in the next session. The pian has been tem- porarily rejected by the Public Works Com- mittee, but it is strongly supported by Mr. Marr and Sir John Butters. The appointment of a permanent nomen- clatura committee, consisting of the Prime Minister, the chairman of the Canberra Com- mission, and a member of the Historic Memo- rials Committee, to evolve a plan for per- manently naming places in the Federal Terri- tory has been advanced by Mr. Marr. The Commission has full power to name every- thing in the Territory, but will accede to the Federal Ministry's desire to be consulted. The Ministry desires that all names finally chosen shall be distincti...

The Making of a City. (NO. 2.) THE GROWTH OF WOODGERS & CALTHORPE, LTD. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

The Making of a City. (NO. 2.) THE GROWTH OF WOODGERS & CALTHORPE, LTD. In a previous issue we dealt with the enter- prise of the firm of J. B. Young, Ltd., the first buyers of a business site, when land was auctioned within the Federal Capital City, in 1924. Another firm, also from Queanbeyan, which has attained commercial success, is that of WOODGERS & CALTHORPE. The merg- ing of its stock and station agency and real es- tate business, which has for years operated in Queanbeyan; and since the sale of blocks at Canberra has secured and opened up, fine modern offices at Civic Centre, marks a record worthy of more than passing notice. This is a forward step by one of the most progressive business concerns outside the mother State of the Commonwealth. The business of the firm had reached such dimensions that it recently approached its clients and offered them the opportunity lo help to control the ever widening field of activities, and at the same time participate in i...

BACK TO SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

? H- m - i ?? i mi » i i II Mn-at^,» BACK TO SCOTLAND. Five hundred Australian Scotsmen and Scotswomen are leaving for Scotland in April, 1928, to boost Australia. The humor- ists notwithstanding, they are paying their own expenses. The canny committee has cut costs to the bone, and there should be some bawbees over from £200 at the end of a six months* tour. Speechifying and junketing will take second place to picnicing and sight- seeing, but the scheme promises to be one of the biggest advertisements Australia has yet received in the Old Country. Canberra should be ' in it. Have we a Scotsman who will go with the delegation and talk this part of Aus- tralia-and maybe bring back a factory or a family or two with him? Particulars can be obtained from Mr. A. Gilchrist, 65 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.

THE ABORIGINES. Appeal To Men and Women of Australia.

"We implore your generous assistance in our effort to obtain simple justice for the abori- ginals of this State. Our requests are few and their equity cannot be denied. We are only asking for citizen rights as set out in the fol- lowing request made to the State Government, viz.: - "(a) That all capable aboriginals shall be given in fee simple sufficient good land to maintain a family. "(b) That the family life of the aboriginal people shall be held sacred and free from inva- sion and that the children shall be left in the control of their parents. "(c) That the incapables of the aboriginal community (the direct liability of the Govern- ment consequent upon neglect in the past) be properly cared for in suitable homes on re- serves, the full expense of such establishm...

Our First Governor. CAPTAIN ARTHUR PHILLIP, 1788-1792. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 July 1927

Our First Governor. CAPTAIN ARTHUR PHILLIP, 1788-1792. By FRANK WALKER, F.R.A.H.S. At the timg of his appointment as Governor of New South Wales, Captain Arthur Phillip was 48 years of age. and had seen much naval service. He at once threw himself, heart and soul into the enterprise, looked into the detail of equipment, made the best arrangements he could for the voyage, and spent much time in trying to spur the Colonial Office into greater energy in getting things into proper order be- fore sailing. All the activity in this direction was needed, for, even in spite of it, the first fleet set out with many serious shortages. After a voyage which had occupied eight months, Phillip at last landed his company on the shores of Botany Bay, and a few days later removed to Sydney Cove, possession being taken on the 26th January, 1788. The transportation had been safely accom- plished, but worse difficulties lay ahead. Apart from the effect of a bad outbreak of scurvy, which had to be fought...
