Westlake News [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Westlake News ----o---- Don't forget that the local Pro- gress Association is a strong body, and wishes everyone that is not a member to join up and make it still stronger. It is pleasing to note that there are only just a few who are not members, but it is hoped that in a short time they will come along and join. Several of the young men from here have felt lonely and to get over the difficulty have got married, and there are a few who may in the near future take the same steps. We must congratulate them all. It is to be hoped that the Depart- ment will take pity on the residents and make a move with the open fire- places so that we may have some comfort in the cool weather. No doubt the new hall will be wel- comed when it is granted, and in fact the tennis courts, too. The road (if we may call it that) is in a deplorable state and it is to be hoped that it will be seen to. The gardens are looking beautiful now with the tomatoes ripening and various other vegetables coming on. It i...

The Progress of Sport at Canberra. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

The Progress of Sport at Canberra.     The keen healthy rivalry between the different centres of our Federal City in the realm of sport is grow- ing in strength and stability. Canberra had two vigorous reps. at the recent Country Week Tennis Carnival in Sydney. Messrs. Findlay and Martin, of Eastlake Club, acquit- ted themselves well, as a fuller report elsewhere proves.   But their ability was not credited to Canberra. They were linked in play with two Queanbeyan players and on paper called reps. of Quean- beyan. The following are some of the prin- cipal activities in the world of "clean sport" within the Territory. CRICKET CLUBS. Federal Cricket Association, affi- liated with the Cricket Association of N.S.W.     Ainslie: Premiers 1922-3-4. Duntroon: Runners up 1922-3. Eastlake: Runners up 1923-4. Canherra. Hostel. Westridge. Hall. The conflicting name of "Can- berra" Club should be changed to some other name, as all...

Communism. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Communism.   The article under the above title in our January issue has evidently "struck home" to one individual who evidently is so much ashamed of the principles he is trying to flatter himself he believes, in that he did not sign his name to the illiterate effu- sion or screed he addressed to the Editor. It would not be noticed but for one sentence, "The quicker revo- lution comes the better for the worker and we will have good lead- ers." Such balderdash is beneath notice, save as an indication that "Soviet dope" is working. The cables to the metropolitan press are giving us hints from the observations of the British Trades Unions' Delegation to Russia. When the full text of their observations are published they will show that the emancipation of the working classes of Russia is far from the ideal Bolshevic propagandists would have us believe it is. Australia is in the vanguard of the world of nations in legislation for the benefit of those whose existence depends ...

In Lighter Vein [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

In Lighter Vein Would-be Burglar (pointing a revolver): Move, and you're a dead man. Professor: Allow me to remark, my good man, that your statement is absurd. If I move it is excellent proof that I am alive. You really should consider your words a little before using them. A traveller in the North of Scot- land, when he reached his destina- tion, discovered he had left his waterproof in the compartment. He hurried over, as the train was mov- ing out, and shouted: "Is there a black macintosh in there?" "No: we're all Macgregors here." was the reply. "I say, Dad, didn't you say that the savages never hardly wear any clothes?" "Yes, Johnny." "Then, why did you put a button in the Mission plate last Sunday?" On a car journey to the Jenolan Caves I heard this one. Smithy said to Scotty, "It seems a pity no Scotch man can go to heaven." "Hoot awa' wi' yer; nonsense!" replied Scotty. "Well," said Smithy, "I heard a man say, 'A man died and when he reach- ed the gates of the Celestial City...

Sir Henry Parkes. THE FATHER OF AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Sir Henry Parkes.   THE FATHER OF AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION. No. 2. In the previous issue proof was given that to this grand old states- man was due the title of "Father of   our Federation." I have before me a copy of' a speech delivered by Sir Henry Parkes at Mudgee, N.S.W. It is headed, "Speech delivered at a Public Dinner given by the working classes of, Mudgee, Aug. 4th, 1866.'' Space forbids lengthy extracts, yet were it all printed many of its points could aptly apply to Canberra.   Henry Parkes (as he was then) was a democrat of the true type, seeking constitutionally what was best for the people as a whole and no "special class" privileges. Take this   from the introduction to the speech mentioned: "Yesterday I was enter- tained by the leading members of your community, and I take this ga- thering of working men, as a mark of distinction, that it is made an object of emulation on the part of two sections of the community as to...

A Bushman's Farewell TO HIS CABBAGE-TREE HAT. (Reprinted by request.) [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

A Bushman's Farewell TO HIS CABBAGE-TREE HAT. (Reprinted by request.) By "YARRUM." Old hat, though I don't like a new one, Through this war I must cast you aside; You've proved a good friend, a true one, Through many a blazing hot ride. Each rip in your crown tells a story Of our gallops o'er mountain and flat And each patch is more to your glory, My battered, old Cabbage-tree Hat. We've streaked it, old hat, by the moonlight, When the cattle were going like   smoke, We've heard the wild bull's distant bellow In his stronghold 'mid the brigalows and oak. You've been soaked in the floods of the Darling, Cut to ribbons and tramped nearly flat By the bullocks when they broke at "The Crossing," My hardy old Cabbage-tree Hat. Though your crown be patched up with leather, Though I've sewn you with horse-hair and string, No more shall we travel together When the mustering comes next spring. For your work is ended—Rest peace- fully there— And should I through this war come to t...

Canberra Burns Club [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 February 1925

Canberra Burns Club   Canberra Burns Club held their first Highland Gathering on Satur- day, 21st February, at Acton Race course. The weather, which did not look promising in the morning on account of the gale which was blow- ing, quietened down considerably, and the fairly strong breeze which continued all day did not prevent a large attendance. The sports opened with the chil- dren's events at 11 o'clock, and about 150 children took part under the control of Mr. A. Hamilton, assisted by Messrs. C. Hooper, J. Miller and A. Peacock. The events were keenly contested   and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The Highland events commenced at one o'clock, under the direction of Messrs. W. Scott and J. McKissock. Mr. John Moodie, of Sydney, was suc- cessful in all three events, with Mr. A. B. Cunningham, of Sydney, second. The piping was enjoyed by a large audience. It is to be regretted that there were other Highland Games on the same day which accounte...

Included in the cam- paign were lectures by the Director of Health, Dr. Compston, followed by the screening of health films.

DEATH OF MR BRUCE BROWN [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

DEATH OF MR BRUCE BROWN When the news reached the many friends—both in official and private circles—at Canberra, on Saturday, March 14th, that Mr. Bruce Brown had passed away at Lewisham Hos- pital, Sydney, after a short illness,   the sympathy and regret was keen, genuine and spontaneous. When we   mention it was after a short illness, it means short as far as having to take to his bed is concerned, but Bruce Brown was a great sufferer from the day when, with other fine young men of the A.I.F., he was put out of action by the fiendish poison gas from the Huns on the field of battle. His quiet, courteous manner towards all with whom he came in contact in carrying out his duties at the enquiry office of the Lands and Survey Department at Acton, Can- berra, and his tact and patience were often mentioned to his credit. The late Bruce Brown was only 27 years of age and a little over twelve months ago, surrounded by a host of well-wishing friends, he was mar- ri...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

Heard of a man who makes it a practice, at the week-end, to take a ten-minutes walk to a neighbour, who subscribes to the local tri-weekly, and borrows his paper to see what time his particular church services start. He's not a Scotchman, either. His religion is not worth two-pence to him—the cost of the paper—yet he is a strict parish church-goer. The bitter and threatening attitude towards Western Foreigners in China, more particularly aimed at British and American residents, has been traced indisputably to Russian intrigue and propaganda. The latest development is the appointment of' M. Knopp, who was shrewdly active as Soviet agent in Berlin, is now transferred to Japan with the impres- sive title of "Minister Plenipotentiary to Japan." Australia would do well to watch developments. Don't for-   get that two year's ago 1000 Japs,   armed with various weapons, took posession of the main street of Broome, Western Australia. They still dwell there. &am...

PNEUMONIC INFLUENZA "PUBLIC NEED NOT FEAR." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

PNEUMONIC INFLUENZA                               '"PUBLIC NEED NOT FEAR." According to the chairman of the   Victorian Health Commission (Dr.   Robertson), the public has little rea- son to fear a serious outbreak of pneumonic influenza this year. "Of course," he said, "there is bound to be influenza this winter, the same as there is every year, but history shows that for some reason or other very   serious epidemics break out but once every 30 years."     With all due respect to Dr. Robert- son, "Prevention is better than cure"' and Dr. Compston knows what he is talking about. He has experience and statisctics to base his opinion on.

ANOTHER INVASION OF INFLUENZA DR. COMPSTON'S PREDICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

ANOTHER INVASION OF   INFLUENZA   DR. COMPSTON'S PREDICTION. A precautionary notice has been issued by Dr. Compston, Director General of Health. He states: The   disease is prevalent in Great Britain and invariably in the past an out- break in Australia has followed an outbreak in Great Britain as soon as vessels arrive from the other side of the world carrying infection. "We can do nothing to prevent" ex- cept ask the public to treat it as an infectious disease. If you take an infection, stay at home. If your em- ployee takes it, send him home. If your friend takes it, remind him of his duty to himself and his neighbors and hint to him that "there is no place like home." No quarantine     measures are possible to cope with influenza. It is not that we treat the disease lightly, but simply that we are powerless to take effective action to stop it on ships. We can do no more than appeal to the pub- lic to protect itself...

The Federal Capital Pioneer. The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. MARCH, 1925. THE WINE INDUSTRY REPREHENSIBLE BETRAYAL OF RETURNED SOLDIER SETTLERS. When the State Government of N.S.W. prepared a scheme to settle on the land men returning from the fields of battle, the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area was chosen as one offering the best inducement. Plans on a large scale were drawn up, and the Griffith, Beelbangera, and Yenda portions of the Area were allotted to returned soldiers. Financially, the task was too heavy for the State to bear, and the Federal Government, with Mr. W. M. Hughes as Prime Minister, was approached. Cabinet and Parliament decided to grant a large sum for the purpose, N.S.W., on its part, agreeing to su- pervise, find the staff, and settle the men. It "settled" some of them completely. The Commonwealth, having found the major portion of   the cash, rightly has power to ask, Has the money provided the settler with the means for...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

The Victorian Farmers, sitting in   conference in Melbourne, March 12th after a lengthy debate rejected a mo- tion which would prevent the Coun- try Party from forming an alliance with any other political party for coalition purposes. This means the Federal pact, Farmers and Nation- alists, is practically safe for three years. The "Amurikan" Fleet are on their way to Australia. Don't repeat this while they are here. When the Aussies had Fritz started on his homeward run, the "Yanks" had just arrived at that sector. The Yanks had a drive, but forgot to "mop up" and Fritzes got behind them in a tunnel and cut them up badly. The "Aussies" were booked for relief, and were about to have their first good spell after the heavy fighting round Villers-Bre.-Corbie region. The "leave-spell" order was counteremanded, and the "Aussies" had to hop in again and carry on with the Yanks intermingled so that they could pick up the Aussie way of "mopping up." General Monash and other "hea...

THE LATE SIR HENRY PARKES THE FATHER OF AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION. No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

THE LATE SIR HENRY PARKES THE FATHER OF AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION. No. 3.   This is the substance of a speech delivered at a public dinner given by   the people of Albury to the veteran statesman, May 15th, 1866.   "It is characteristic of the Anglo- Saxon race to propagate the prin- ciples of Freedom and Progress wherever their steps are planted. The great people of which we form a part has been designated by an eminent man 'The English-speaking Nation,' as that people is now rooted in every quarter of the globe, carrying its in- stitutions and its language to the uttermost ends of the earth. One of   the institutions of this nation, and he believed a good one, was to be   found in its public dinners, such as this. This was a peculiar but a great   institution which often produced re- sults of the most beneficial and har-   monious character. It might be that their function that evening would ser...

SOCIAL BALANCES [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

SOCIAL BALANCES Mr. S. Shotton, in an address on "What Social Classes Owe to Each Other," speaking of Australian con- ditions said: ''The late Bishop Moor- house of` Melbourne, once said in reply to an interjection, 'We have no aristocracy here, sir, some people are richer than others, that is all.' The sooner that fact is recognised the better it will be for Australian De- mocracy. We cannot have it both ways. The fact that "only muscle"   is counted by some should not blind us to the fact that, without a direct- ing brain, muscle is of little use. The Russian people have found this out to their cost. There is no such thing as equality, "so many men, so many minds." We can only hope for equality of opportunity, and even this is hard and even difficult to deter-   mine. In this journal allow me to emphasise this—here in our present     day. Take two boys, each the son of poor parents, who enter,     say, C...
