CANBERRA'S NEW PAPER. "The Canberra Times." [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

CANBERRA'S NEW PAPER. "The Canberra Times." Mr. T. M. Shakespeare, M.L.C., is to be congratulated upon his enterprise in taking time by the forelock, as in 1924, he was early in the field when blocks were sold first at Canberra for business and residential purposes. On behalf of a new company called The Federal Capital Press of Australia, Ltd. he purchased a fine corner block and lost no time in erecting what will be in years to come an historic build- ing, the first industrial establishment to commence operations at Canberra. We welcome heartily "The Canberra Times." Its advent as a weekly paper means much to Canberra, and it will grow. "The Pioneer" has grown and has held the fort for "The Canberra Times," not through a mutual ar- rangement, but as an historical paper. Readers know the desire has been kept well in the foreground to make "The Pioneer" a recognised accurate historical document, and its wide range of intelligent readers by letter and verbally have told us it is so re...

A NEW CLUB AT CANBERRA. The Old Collegian's' Club.

"THE CANBERRA TIMES." Links With The Past. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

"THE CANBERRA TIMES." Links With The Past. (By "Foreword.") When in 1894, a group of news- paper men gathered in the composing room of "The Forbes and Parkes Gazette" to farewell Mr. T. M. Shake- speare, a presentation was made of the setting stick which he had used in serving his time as an apprentice. This inscribed setting stick has been a nighty factor in the country press of Australia, and is to-day still in use in the office of "The Canberra Times." With it, Mr. T. M. Shakespeare left Forbes and commenced his own paper, "The Condobolin Lachlander," which has many links with Canberra and its first newspaper establishment, "The Canberra Times." Thirty years ago, the editor of Can- berra's first paper, Mr. A. K. Murray, was a contributor to "The Condobolin Lachlander." It was there he saw developing, that master mind which has guided the destinies of country newspaper men for over 20 years. Through drought and plenty—mostly drought—"The Lachlander" made its way until at the end o...

LIEUTENANT JOSHUA JOHN MOORE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

LIEUTENANT JOSHUA JOHN MOORE. By Henry Selkirk. In my previous article I have dealt with James Ainslie, overseer to the Hon. Robert Campbell at Pialligo, bet- ter known to us in later years as the Duntroon Estate. It has usually been accepted as a matter of course that Mr. Campbell was the first settler at Limestone Plains, but, after closely examining all available records, I find that this honor must be placed to the credit of Lieutenant Joshua John Moore, a retired officer of the 14th Regiment of Foot, and a Waterloo veteran. Though Mr. Campbell's ac- tual date of occupation is a few years subsequent to that of Lieutenant Moore, he is rightly regarded as the outstanding personality of the district, where he and his family were closely identified with all matters pertaining to the good of the community, while to his own tenantry Mr. Campbell was essentially a beneficent Lord of the Manor. Joshua John Moore was the son of John Moore, a gentleman farmer hold- ing an estate in the Co...

AN AUSTRALIANS IMPRESSIONS OF AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 20 August 1926

AN AUSTRALIANS IMPRESSIONS OF AMERICA. [Last year mention was made in "The Pioneer" of the departure of Mr. Keith B. Hudson, of the Architects' branch, from Canberra to America,   seeking to gain professional information and to learn from travel particulars, and at the same time, see a bit more of the world. As promised, he has sent us a racy letter which throws some more light on life at Los Angeles city.—Ed. "Pioneer"]. The editor of "The Federal Capital Pioneer" has asked me to write a short article on my impressions abroad. These have been so vivid   and varied that I am somewhat at a loss to condense a description of but a few of them into the small space at my disposal. It seems to be accepted as an axiom of travellers between the English speaking countries that they should   be critical of the customs and man- ners of the people they are visiting. This is unfair and maintains that   foolish prejudice between the British and ...
