DODGE BROTHERS TOURING CAR The world has built many thousands of miles of good roads, but there are still vast areas where roads are extremely diffi- cult to travel. In these undeveloped regions, Dodge Brothers Touring Car is particularly popular. Its weight is right. The engine possesses ample reserves of pulling power. And if given reasonable care and faith- fully lubricated the working parts of the car rarely call for the owner's attention.

CANBERRA'S FIRST PRIVATE BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926

CANBERRA'S FIRST PRIVATE BANK. Proof of Canberra's prosperity and advancement is shown when banking companies invest, build, and open banks. The first private bank to open up for business at Canberra is the Bank of New South Wales, which has chosen Eastlake as its temporary centre, with a fine building, erected by Mr. John. Deans, opposite the em- porium of J. B. Young, Ltd. In- spector Saunders is managing until a     permanent officer arrives. A social function at the bank premises was held a fortnight ago, and among those present were Dr. Finlay and Messrs. W. Woodger, J. Petley, John Deans, Major Fussell (manager of Common- wealth Bank, Canberra), Inspector Saunders, and others. Felicitous   speeches were the order of the day.

CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926

CANBERRA BURNS CLUB. The popularity of the Burns Club concerts was again demonstrated by the large audience at the Causeway Hall, Eastlake, on Friday, April 23rd, when another good programme was presented. The club has engaged the Scotch vocalist, Mr. Stuart Peters, as well as obtaining the assistance of talented local artists. The opening item by the Molonglo String Orchestra was a captivating item for which they received an en- core. Mr. A. B. Brown, with a topical song in "dude" character, was en- thusiastically encored, and responded with another character item. Mr. Stuart Peters, who had a hearty re- ception, gave as his first item, "The Standard on the Braes o' Mar," which was rendered with fine effect and com- pelled an encore. Mr. A. McDonald, a favorite with Canberra audiences gave a splendid rendering of "The Battle of Stirling," also encored. A mandolin selection by Mr. James Stuart was well received. The sword dance by Miss Allen followed, and the young dancer had to res...

ANZAC DAY CELEBRATIONS, Reunion of Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 24 May 1926

ANZAC DAY CELEBRATIONS. Reunion of Soldiers. An event, historic because it was the first Anzac reunion of ex-A.I.F. men and veterans of the South African and China Wars held at Canberra, was celebrated by a dinner at the Hotel Canberra on Saturday evening, April   24th. True, Duntroon Military College have had special functions each year but that was strictly an official cere- mony, and Duntroon sub-branch of the R.S. and S.T.L., have also met. But Canberra R.S. and S.T. League, under the presidency of Captain Bert Jackson, M.C., with Mr. Mitchell Orr, hon. secretary, are deserving of credit for having taken the matter in hand. It was up to any member to take the initiative, but the work was done, and though arrangements could not be made for the large dining hall as it was engaged beforehand, about 60 sat down in the well-appointed smaller dining hall, where a fine dinner was served. Captain Jackson presided, having on his right Mr. J. H. Butters, C.M.G., O.B.E., chair...

CANBERRA TAKING SHAPE. Progress of Activities. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926

CANBERRA TAKING SHAPE. Progress of Activities. May 9th, 1927, having been definitely fixed as the date of the transfer of the seat of government from Mel- bourne to Canberra, less than a year remains for the completion of pre- paratory activities. The progress of work, however, has been carried out according to a definite programme, and at the opening of Parliament, Canberra, thenceforward to be known as the capital city of Australia, will be visibly established. It is indeed obviously a city now, a city the attractiveness of which windless frosty days of clear sunshine are serving to accentuate. Parliament House stands, a dominating land- mark, high up on the slope of a central elevation, a massive white, window-dotted parallelogram with a background of kurrajongs and sur- rounded on three sides by a road- crossed area of brown soil, ploughed and graded in readiness for the gar- dens and grounds which will be an important feature of an immediately commencing beautification scheme. ...

The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. JUNE 25, 1926. FOREIGN INFLUX OUTSTRIPPING OUR OWN RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926

The Federal Capital Pioneer The Official Organ of The Australian Federal Capital League. JUNE 25, 1926. FOREIGN INFLUX OUTSTRIPPING OUR OWN RACE. Statistics published for the first quarter of 1926 show an 80 per cent. increase in migrants from Southern Europe and Asia—and still they come. The French steamer "Ville D'Amiens," which arrived at Sydney on June 14th, brought another big batch, ranging from scholars to waiters, including In- dians, Belgians, Germans, Jugo-Slavs, Italians, Greeks, Frenchmen, Russians, and Syrians. It was also announced that the big Italian Navigazione Generato Italiana Company's liner "Citto de Genova," to arrive on June 20th, had a full complement of third class passengers. This is a matter vitally concerning Australia's future. That Italian agen- cies are at work pouring in Italians who are quietly elbowing Australian workers out of jobs is evident in every State. We have received a letter from "A Digger" which is too long and too "adjectively" couched t...

SCOTTISH SUNSHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926

SCOTTISH SUNSHINE. A resident at Canberra received a copy of his home paper from Scotland, "The Forres, Elgin, and Nairn Ga- zette," and passed it on for our per- usal. We were struck with one item,   which ran: "In Forres last month there were 58 hours 40 minutes of sunshine. The rainfall measured 3½ inches." Now, one can realise as never before why we have so many Scotchmen at Can- berra; they come out for sunshine. Fancy counting sunshine for the month by minutes. An Australian paper would have said we had 375 points of rain. That reminds me. Two boundary riders met on the journey round the boundary fence dividing the stations each was employed on. First Boundary Rider: "How much rain did they have at your homestead yesterday?" Second B.R.: "75 points." First B.R.: "Oh, is that all; we had 'arf an inch at ours."

AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL AT CANBERRA. Considerable interest has been evinced in the architectural competi-   tion for the design of the proposed Australian war memorial at Canberra, for which entries and designs were re- turnable by April 30, 1926. Designs were received simultaneously in Sydney, London, and New York, and altogether there were 70 entries from all Australian States, New Zea- land, and Australian architects in Europe and America.

TAKING AN INVENTORY. Some years ago, a Bathurst auc-   tioneer sent his clerk, into the country to take an inventory of the furniture of a house. He was absent an extra- ordinarily long time, and on search be- ing made was found helplessly drunk, with a whisky bottle by his side. In his book only a single entry had been written, namely: "One revolving car- pet."

DEPARTURE OF CONSTABLE FOSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926

DEPARTURE OF CONSTABLE FOSTER.     Constable Foster, who has only been 10 months at Canberra, has received notice of his appointment to take charge at Bermagui. He regrets leav- ing, as he had made his home here,   and thought he was likely to be sta- tioned here for some considerable time, but he has to obey orders. Mr. Foster will be missed, as he had al- ready taken a keen interest in football and was a prominent member of the Eastlake Tennis Association—a sturdy advocate of clean sport, conscientious in the discharge of his duty, fearless of men's opinion, yet not officious. Mr. and Mrs. Foster and their little daughter take with them the best wishes of the people of Canberra, who trust their surroundings at Bermagui will be as congenial as they have been at Canberra.

THE FIRST PHILHARMONIC CONCERT AT CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 25 June 1926

THE FIRST PHILHARMONIC CONCERT AT CANBERRA. All roads led to the Causeway Hall on Saturday evening, 15th May. A long line of cars, as 8 o'clock ticked off, left no room for doubt that citi- zens of Canberra were behind the movement to inaugurate high-class musical evenings for the community. Many visitors from Queanbeyan and the surrounding district were present, and were well repaid for their jour- ney. The hall presented an animated and picturesque appearance. The   stage gave evidence of artistic pre- paration; a scenic background to the platform; male members of the newly formed Musical Society seated behind two rows of lady members; beneath, on the right, brass and reed instru- mentalists, and on the left stringed in- struments, with the conductor's stand in the centre. The conductor and or- ganiser, Mr. E. A. Mowle, had spared no pains to have every detail up to concert pitch, and with Mr. W. Far- row as stage manager, and Mr. C. E. Pike as secretary, they made th...
