WHITE CITY CAMP. A. K. Murray's Lecture on "Canberra And Its Origins." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
WHITE CITY CAMP. A. K. Murray's Lecture on "Canberra And Its Origins." By C. E. P. A very interesting and informative lecture was delivered by Mr. A. K. Murray at the White City Camp, un- der the auspices of the Federal Debat- ing Club, on 11th March. A numerous and appreciative audience listened to the lecture, which was indeed full of historical data that was thought to be long since buried and finally for- gotten. However, the lecturer, who is a tireless explorer of ancient records, and a proud possessor of a priceless collection of books, etc., unlocked his vast store of historical lore for the benefit of his fellow-men, who in re- turn accorded him a very hearty meed of thanks and applause at the close of his remarks. Mr. Murray, in the course of his discourse, said that his desire, when he gave an affirmative reply to the delegate of the White City debating committee who asked him to lecture, was to honour the memory and help perpetuate the names of the men of the past, who, a...

CANBERRA RIFLE CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
CANBERRA RIFLE CLUB. The official opening of the above was held under pleasant conditions on Saturday, March 27th. The chairman of the Federal Capital Commission Mr. J. H. Butters, in declaring the club open, said it gave him much pleasure to attend and encourage such an important national and interesting pastime, and hoped the club member- ship would increase as it became bet- ter known on the Territory. Captain Callaghan, on behalf of the members, thanked Mr. Butters for his interest in the sport and for his wil- lingness to perform the opening cere- mony. Mr. Butters fired three shots at the 500 yards target and registered three &nbsp; bull's-eyes. Prize money totalling £5 gave the chance for members to indulge in a good competition. The membership of Canberra Rifle Club has reached 57. The Supervisor of Rifle Clubs has forwarded a supply of rifles. Mr. N.

CANBERRA BUILDING OPERATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
CANBERRA BUILDING OPERATIONS. The first permanent administrative building at Canberra is to cost £500,000, according to evidence before the Federal Public Works Committee, by Mr. John S. Murdoch, Director- General of Public Works and Chief Ar- chitect. &nbsp; &nbsp; This building, he said, would be the forerunner merely of a large group of buildings, which would take centuries to complete. Mr. Murdoch pointed out that the original intention was to provide monumental Parliamentary buildings at Canberra, but this idea had been departed from for financial reasons, and the buildings under erection would be temporary. It had been intended also that the administrative building should be temporary, but later it had been decided that it should be permanent. Accordingly, an open competition for architects &nbsp; throughout Australia was instituted, and out of 94 designs, that submitted by Mr. G. Sydney Jones, a Sydney ar- chitect, has been accepted. The cost of the bu...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. "Bunting."—The answer is No. The blue Australian flag is flown only on Government buildings and offices and by the navy. Under no consideration is a blue Australian flag allowed to be flown by a private individual, or any commercial house. The red Australian flag is the only flag allowed to be flown by private persons. "Swimmer."—Kick at the authorities yourself. You're not a sport in ask- ing me to do it. The first band recital at Canberra was heard on Sunday afternoon, April 11th, when the inter-city Blue 'bus brought the Goulburn Light Horse Band to place on record the above fact. The music was appreciated by a large gathering on the lawn of the Hotel Canberra, which is an ideal spot, sur- rounded, as it is at present, with a wealth of floral colour. The strains of music were hear reverberating, as an echo, through the surrounding moun- tains and hills.
AUSTRALIA WELL REPRESENTED IN U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
AUSTRALIA WELL REPRESENTED IN U.S.A. Official statistics supplied by Sir James Elder, Commissioner for Aus- tralia in U.S.A., will surprise a good many. They show that the 1920 cen- sus revealed that 10,801 persons then residing in America were born in Aus- tralia. Persons one or both of whose parents were born in Australia totalled 13,055, and others of Australian des- cent were 9405, making in all 33,261 persons whose birth is connected with Australia.
WHOLESALE DEPORTATIONS FROM U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
WHOLESALE DEPORTATIONS FROM U.S.A. The report of the Immigration Com- missioners of U.S.A. states:—"There are over one million deportable aliens in the country. The Immigration Bu- reau is making arrangements to de- port one thousand undesirable aliens at once." Non-Americans who have built up small businesses are, they say, living in perpetual fear of being outed at a moment's notice. This news is from the land of boast- ed Liberty. Yet, Walsh and Johannsen (or Johnson) are daily issuing bulletins proving, in their charges against one another, that the move to deport both of them was not only desirable but would have, two years ago, saved hun- dreds of waterside and other workers, and their wives and children from &nbsp; want and poverty. They stand brand- ed as self-confessed revolutionists and parasites on the workers, and Australia would be well rid of them.
THE FIRST COMEDY PLAY AT CANBERRA. In the Community. For the Community. By the Community. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
THE FIRST COMEDY PLAY AT CANBERRA. In the Community. For the Community. By the Community. So ran the inscription on the title page of the tastefully arranged pro- gramme handed to each patron at The Causeway Hall on Saturday evening, March 29th, when "The Man From Toronto" was staged, and staged well, by Mr. A. J. Pate and his Community Players. It was a well-filled and thoroughly representative audience that greeted the company when the curtain went up. Space prevents as full a description of the comedy as we would wish. The verdict was unanimous, as the many cars were making preparations to leave at the close of the play—"Splendid work," "A credit to all the company," and similar tributes, which we heartily en- dorse. Miss Jean Alexander as "Mrs Calthorpe," a wealthy widow, was splendid, and took her part with nat- ural ease and grace, even when posing as "Polly," a housemaid; her acting was rewarded by floral offerings from the audience. Mr. A. J. Pate, as "Fer gus Wimbush," the ...

PROGRESS OF WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 22 April 1926
PROGRESS OF WORK. The latest official report on the progress of activities indicates the completion of the whole of the major operations in the construction of Par- liament House, and the approaching completion of the majority, of inter- nal fittings and mechanical services.
