Canberra Water Supply and Sewerage [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 August 1927

Canberra Water Supply and Sewerage Water Supply.-The water supply for Can- berra is obtained from the Cotter River, a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River. It has a catchment area of about 170 square miles on which there is no settlement, the country be- ing steep and difficult of access. The water is of the highest quality for domestic supply, and the inclusion of the whole catchment in the Federal Territory ensures its protection against contamination in the future. The average daily flow of the Cotter River is 70,000,000 gallons, sufficient for the supply of 700,000 persons at 100 gallons per head per day. A storage reservoir has been formed on the Cotter River, near its junction with the Murrumbidgee, about 14 miles from the city site. The dam was originally intended to be 100 feet hiin order tn imnnund 1.400 mil lion gallons. It was constructed, however, to a height of 60 feet, and the capacity of the dam is therefore reduced to 380,000,000 gal- lons. The safe draft of this rese...

McCaudle the Roamer HE MILKS A COW AND KILLS A SHEEP. (Continued from Previous Issues.) [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 August 1927

McCaudle the Roamer HE MILKS A COW AND KILLS A SHEEP. By YARRUM. (Continued from Previous Issues.) "The Roamer" continues his reminiscences: I mentioned the station hand, after landing me at the hut at 4 a.m., said: "I'll cali you at 6; other mornings you start at half-past five." With the few bags, on what he called "a bunk/' under me, and my one relic of happier days, my travelling rug, over me, I turned in as I stood. It seemed I had only been asleep half an hour when I was roughly shaken, and the voice of, what I learned later, was the old man whom I saw pretending sleep m the other bunk on my arrival said: "Hey, git up, it's after six. I've got ter show yer where to git the milk bucket." I rose with a sore hip from the hard boards of the bunk. "Old Sam," as I later found he was known, pointed to a rusty wash-basin outside perched on three sticks driven triangle fashion into the ground, when I asked: "Where do I Wash?" I pass over that ex perience. Pointing in the direction of a...

NEW BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 August 1927

NEW BOOKS. By a recent mail two of the latest of the new series of books published by "The Corn- stalk Publishing Co.," of Sydney, are to hand from Angus & Robertson, Ltd. This com- pany endeavors to encourage Australian en- terprise in literature. The first, The Revolt of Asia, by Upton Close, is a gripping work by one who knows his subject. He is no alarmist, but after twenty thousand miles of investigation from Japan to Palestine, the reader gains first hand Knowledge of Asia as a rising power, and Australians particularly should read the work and know the neighbors at our door. Six Years in the Malay Jungles is not so terrorising as its title would convey. It con- tains much scientific information on the flora and fauna of the Malay territory, and sparkles with humor, and is written in capti- vating style. The author, Cardeth Wells, is a member of the Royal Geographical Society, and of the Institute of Civil Engineers.

PRINCE OF SIAM AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 August 1927

PRINCE OF SIAM AT CANBERRA General Purachatra, Prince of Kambaing Bejra, and a brother of the King of Siam, and his wife and daughter, the Princes». Maurachatra, paid a visit to the Federal Capital recently. The visitors, who were the guests of the State, were shown all the points of interest by the Federal Capital Commission, and were motored to the Cotter River Dam. Prince Purachatra, a charming and cul- tured man, was greatly impressed by the way in which the Federal Capital is being laid out. He commented very favorably on the fact that instead of starting from the centre and building out, the general scheme at Can- berra was to get four or five suburban points well started and then building from these either outwards or inwards. This appealed to the Prince as a step in the right direction, lending itself particularly to the "avoiding of all kinds of congestion. People also had the choice of living in either one suburb or the other, and yet remaining in the one city. A keen phot...

"CANBERRA—ITS HISTORY AND LEGENDS." [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 August 1927

"CANBERRA-ITS HISTORY AND LEGENDS." [The following is from the pen of a son of one of the earliest graziers in the district, and we welcome this appreciation of John Gale's work.-Ed.]. Those of us who anticipated with keen in- terest the coming of Mr. John Gale's book with the above title have no cause for dis- appointment with this valuable work of our much esteemed 97 year old veteran journalist. A notable feature about this book is that the author is modest in his own personal narra- tives, and generous in conceding a fair amount of space to others of the past or present who have a story worth telling, or reproducing. This is instanced in the somewhat lengthy contribution of Mr. Samuel Shumack, and quotations from the literary works of Super- intendent Brennan and others of the past. This book has a charming appeal in that it takes us back into the real atmosphere of ' the days of our grandfathers in and around Canberra. This effect is accomplished by some kind of journalistic ar...

FAREWELL PRESENTATION TO MR. H. M. ROLLAND, O.B.E., F.R.A.I.A. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 20 August 1927

FAREWELL PRESENTATION TO MR. H. M. ROLLAND, O B E., F R A J.A. Canberra has lost one of its most un- assuming and, at the same time, one of its most conscientious and capable citizens by the promotion of Mr. H. M. Rolland, late chief architect at Canberra, to the position of Commonwealth Works Director at Adelaide. Mr. Rolland has been identified with the work of "making Canberra" since 1913, but up to 1921 his duties were operated from Melbourne. In the latter year he took up residence at the Federal Capital under Mr. J. Murdoch, C.M.G., Chief Commonwealth Architect, and Colonel P. T. Owen, C.M.G., who was, at that time, in full control of constructional activi- ties as Commonwealth Director-General of Works prior to the advent of the Federal Capital Commission. During these years, and since the Federal Capital Commissioners took over the work, Mr. Rolland has had many trying problems to solve Many say that if they had been left a free hand the early ad- ministrators would have ach...
