ELECTRIC CURRENT FOR CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
ELECTRIC CURRENT FOR &nbsp; &nbsp; CANBERRA. Mr. Flannery, N.S.W. Minister for Works and Railways, replying to the application from a Tumut deputation seeking to develop the natural re- sources of the Tumut Municipality and Gadera Shire, stated incidentally, that the State Government had, prac- ticallv, completed an agreement with the Federal Government to supply electricity to Canberra from the Bur- rinjuck hydro-electric scheme.
PROGRESS OF FORESTRY IN THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
PROGRESS OF FORESTRY IN THE FEDERAL CAPIAL. A Juvenile Court of the Ancient Order of Foresters "Pride of Can berra," No. 9896, was opened on May 15th, at the Hall, Acton, Canberra. This has been founded by Bro. M. Heselden, P.C.R. (who was foun- der of the Adult Court A.O.F. at Can- berra, and also the branch at Quean- beyan, last year), with the record of over thirty juvenile candidates, rang- ing from 3 to 16 years. &nbsp; It was declared open by Mr. Water- man, who acted as representative for the Commissioner, Mr. Butters (who was unable to be present), in a few well-chosen remarks. This Court, besides its social value to the, children, also carries its own benefits, sick and funeral, and is divided into three classes—3 to 16 years. It has begun well, with its own banking account of £11/9/ col- lected by Bro. Heselden. Except for cheques from the Commissioners and a few friends, it was mostly contri- buted by the ever open-handed work- men at Parliament House. The offi- c...
BENEFIT SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
BENEFIT SOCIAL. A dance and social was held, under the auspices of Lodge Star of Can- berra 10743, G.U.O.O.F., Westlake, on Wednesday, May 5th, for the benefit of Mrs. Okely, the widow of the late Frank Okely. The whole of the proceeds are to be given to the widow, no deduction whatever to be taken from the re- ceipts. All the 400 tickets printed were sold, and many more could have been disposed of, but it was not con- venient to get more printed in time. In one case, a ticket was resold no &nbsp; less than six times, thus realising 12/. The total receipts were £43/14/. Arbuckle's orchestra kindly supplied the music gratis for the evening, which was very much appreciated by all. Thanks are due to Mr. Norman Far- rell for kindly lending his car for committee use, and to Mr. Arthur Dowsett for the many tickets he sold. Mr. W. H. Kelly, the social secre- tary, assisted by. Messrs. W. H. Wil- liams, sen., W. H. Williams, jun., Bob Harrison, and J. G. Porter, rendered yeoman serv...
The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. MAY 24, 1926. VICTORY FOR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
The Federal Capital Pioneer &nbsp; The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. MAY 24, 1926. VICTORY FOR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. It has remained for men of British &nbsp; breed to break the back of foreign Socialism, alias civil war. The most momentous epoch in the history of Great Britain with regard to domestic disruption, for generations, has, through the sound reasoning and combined &nbsp; common sense of her populace, passed away; and though suffering a tempor- ary setback, commercially, she has come out of the short and sharp con- flict with honor, and won the respect of the other nations of the world. It was absolutely a win for the sane &nbsp; democratic workers of England against mad-brained extremists who had gain- ed control of the Labor movement, as &nbsp; far as the people of England were con- cerned. The trouble between the miners and the mine owners did not call for such a drastic and doomed-to-failure gene- ...
SABRE-RATTLING MUSSOLINI. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
SABRE-RATTLING MUSSOLINI. &nbsp; Cables inform us that the French &nbsp; press are perturbed over the irritating well-staged declarations of Mussolini, "The Dictator of Italy." The leading dailies of Australia publish, from time to time, some dramatic statement of this idol of the Fascists, "The black- shirted menace of Europe," as they have been aptly termed. Mr. A. M. &nbsp; Pooley, a recognised authority on for- eign affairs, recently pointed out in the "Evening News" that "Mussolini it is broadly suspected is at the back of the Greek activities." That does &nbsp; not necessarily mean that Italy could take an active part herself in the war, but it suggests that Italy might hold a ring for the Greeks and Turks to fight it out, and take as a reward, afterwards, some islands, and perhaps some portion of Asia Minor—if Greece were successful. &nbsp; &nbsp; With the so-called civilised world nerve wracked after the devastating and ghastly...
DEATH OF SIR HUGH DIXSON. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
DEATH OF SIR HUGH DIXSON. Canberra has lost the interest of one of her most persistent advocates through the death of Sir Hugh Dix- son, following an attack of pneumonia, at Colombo, on May 12. During a conversation with the &nbsp; &nbsp; writer at his beautiful home "Aber- geldie," Summer Hill, Sydney, last year, he dwelt much on the important position Canberra would hold in the years to come, and pathetically added: "But I will not be alive to see it." Sir Hugh was very much interested in Telopea Park School, a photo of which finds a place on one of the walls at Abergeldie. He presented the first two flags to the school, a Union Jack and the Australian flag. Both were unfurled at the opening of the school in 1922. The first flag was "broken" by the then Minister for Education, Mr. A. Bruntnell, and the Australian flag by the present Minister, Mr. Tom Mutch. Sir Hugh at that time said, when writing about the flags: "If in any other way I can help, the school or Canb...
CANBERRA SOCIAL SERVICE ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
CANBERRA SOCIAL SERVICE ASSOCIATION. Some time ago, the Commission took the lead in inaugurating a social ser- vice movement, having for its object the introduction, by the co-operative efforts of the Commission and the re- sidents, of the social amenities of city environment. A properly constituted organisation, known as the Social Service Associa- tion, the membership of which is open to all residents, has now been estab- lished; and in connection with it dis- &nbsp; trict committees, which will at a later stage elect a Social Service Council, are now in process of formation. Mean- &nbsp; while, a provisional council is operat- ing, elected by committees appointed to supervise various social activities, e.g., indoor and outdoor recreation, lib- raries, education, children's recreation, and women's and children's welfare. The community generally has enthu- siastically adopted the whole scheme, and consistent activity by the com- mittee is the result. A substantial r...
NOMENCLATURE OF CANBERRA AND THE FEDERAL TERRITORY'S ENVIRONMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
NOMENCLATURE OF CANBERRA AND THE FEDERAL TERRITORY'S ENVIRONMENTS. By John Gale. [This interesting article from the pen of the veteran journalist Mr. John Gale—the oldest living journalist in the British Empire—now in his 97th year, will, we feel sure, carry weight. Mr. Gale was a noted traveller in his young days in these parts. A keen observer, methodical, and fond of his- torical research, he knew many of the pioneers of the Monaro district and adjacent places, and his verdict that the first syllable of the word Canberra is pronounced Can should silence the contention of two or three of one family, for a new cult. We thank Mr. Gale for his historic contribution —Ed. "Pioneer."] The place names of many parts of Australia and their corruptions would form a fertile topic of criticism to anyone qualified for the task. Still, there is need for such criticism to a limited extent, if only to ensure ac- curacy for the credit sake of the Fede- ral Capital Territory of the whole Commonweal...

CANBERRA'S EARLY HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
CANBERRA'S EARLY HISTORY. [We are pleased to place before our readers the following article by Mr. Henry Selkirk, F.R.A.H.S., which is a valuable addition to the early history of the pioneers of our Federal Terri- tory. As mentioned in last issue, Mr. Selkirk was for nearly 40 years re- search officer to the N.S.W. Depart- ment of Lands. Since he resigned, he has spent a good deal of his time, and still enjoys it, at research work for the Mitchell Library authorities.—Ed.] JAMES AINSLIE AND CANBERRA. It is not so long since that in one of our leading metropolitan papers I read an article under the heading "War Memorial on Mount Ainsley." This gives an incorrect spelling to the name applied to one of the dominating features of the Federal capital area. The mere fact of Ainslie being thus misspelt may appear to many as an unimportant item, but surely historical accuracy, even in trifles, is desirable, and how much more so when, as in this case, affecting the nomenclature of a Federal ...
AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL. This being the last season before the Australian code will definitely estatb- lish its supremacy as the football code for Canberra, the Federal Territory Football League, which has controlled the game in this district since 1924, has been making special efforts to tighten up its organisation, and ele- vate the standard of the game. That its efforts have been successful was evidenced in the opening games of the season on Saturday, May 15th, when despite the fact that vice-regal patron- age was sought and secured for the English codes, the national game showed, in the enthusiasm of the crowds of onlookers, and in the vigor and skill of the players, that it will take some surpassing so far as popu- larity is concerned. &nbsp; &nbsp; This year, five teams are competing, each with a reserve list almost suffi- cient to form a second team. Of the five, Federals, Acton, and Queanbeyan have given in previous years proof of their mettle. Blandfordia ...

WHITE CITY DEBATING CLUB. Mr. A. K. Murray Lectures on Tribal Habits and Customs of Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
WHITE CITY DEBATING CLUB. Mr. A. K. Murray Lectures on Tribal Habits and Customs of Aborigines. (By C.E.P.) Mr. A. K. Murray again occupied the stage at the White City Club's recreation room on 5th May, his sub- ject being, "Tribal Habits and Customs of the Aboriginals of Australia," with an account of a two days' battle wit- nessed by himself. Mr. Murray show- ed that his knowledge of the manners and customs of the aborigines was unique and comprehensive, combining as it did the knowledge that comes from close contact, as well as from extensive study, spread over a long period of years, and representing deep searchings into the dark and tragic history of the Australian black. His strange customs in peace and war were graphically described, and a vivid account of a somewhat bloodless though long drawn out battle which was listened to with breathless in- terest, effectively wound up the even- ing's entertainment. In a short introductory speech, the chairman (Mr. Bones) referred to th...

ANZAC SUNDAY SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926
ANZAC SUNDAY SERVICES. Camp Hill was the rendezvous of the returned Diggers and their friends, where a very impressive service was conducted by Chaplains Ward (C. of E.), Hain (Pres.), and Evans (Meth.). Though the day was inclined to be inclement, about 250 persons were pre- sent. Some members of the newly formed Canberra Band were present and led the singing. The service was not prolonged, yet it was a splendid tribute to the men of Anzac. The Canberra branch of the R.S. and S. League was well represented. Mr. Les Edward, after the singing of Kipling's "Recessional," sounded "The Last Post." This function will doubtless be an annual one, and Camp Hill, be- hind Parliament House, should be the &nbsp; "Mecca" of ex-Diggers for Anzac Day services. &nbsp;
