CANBERRA WINNING ITS WAY [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

CANBERRA WINNING ITS WAY Senators and members of the House of Representatives, who, from their halls of legislature in Mel- bourne, were bitterly opposed to voting any money for the develop- ment, and settlement, of the Seat of the Federal Government at Canberra, and later on were induced by the persuasive, logical arguments of the sturdy fighters for honoring "the scrap of paper" to visit Canberra; came, saw, and were converted to a belief in its natural position as suitable for the Capital City of the Commonwealth, combined with the resources Nature has provided, viz., abundant water supply, clay deposits which make the finest bricks in the Southern Hemisphere, blue metal quarries, and scenic effects to glad- den the eye of the critical artist—all are slowly, and surely, breaking down to crumbling point all opposition to the practical occupation of Canberra as Australia's Federal pivot. The latest convert, we learn from Sydney Press reports, can be judged from the following:— At t...

CANBERRA SPECIAL ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

CANBERRA SPECIAL ARTICLE. Canberra having become the scene of the greatest activities in city building has vanished the old topic of it being only a dream. Large num- bers of workmen of all branches of the building trades are busily en- gaged in the construction of what is to be the most wonderful and beau- tiful Capital City in the world. Al- ready Government buildings, the Australia Federal Houses of Parlia- ment, Banks, Hostels, Stores and Homes for thousands of our citizens are now nearing completion and under construction. Magnificent pure water supply, sewerage and lighting systems, and miles of well formed streets have been constructed for the use of the thousands of people who will flock to this great city now that accommodation is fast becoming available. All this development is being carried on in fever haste to provide for Parliament sitting there early next year. Of what moment and interest is this development to the people of the British Empire! Besides being a national...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 1 March 1925

ITEMS OF INTEREST. The South African Government has introduced a bill placing heavy re- strictions on the employment of na- tives and Asiatics in skilled labour.   General Smuts opposes the bill, de- claring that it will bring the hatred of all Asia and South Africa. The Boers fought a war with the   Zulus in '79 and they pleaded with   Britain to save them which they did—and asked Britain to take over the Z.A.R.   Aussies saw the stalwart native   fighters of Zululand, Basutoland, and the Matabeles. If they unite, the Dutchmen will be sending out S.O.S. messages again. The first official race meeting at Canberra was a financial success and they cleared about £150. A subscri- ber sends a letter too long for pub- lication, regretting the absence of the Tote, and the pocket-emptying prices of "the books." "Tote or no- thing" is his slogan. The Molonglo and Westlake Pro- gress Associations are live bodies and watch the in...

THE PROGRESS OF THE PIONEER [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

THE PROGRESS OF THE PIONEER This paper, entering on its fifth month of publication, appreciates all the kindly notices in various news papers throughout the Common- wealth, as well as numerous letters from all classes of the communinty. From the Prime Minister, ex-Prime Minister, supporters of the A.L.P., and Commercial men, the condensed wishes are for "Long life to the Pio- neer." The dominant note we have struck "Australia on true democratic lines, and no outside foreign intriguing influences" seems to be the main factor in the gathering in of these appreciative messages. The limitations of space in these columns prevents publication of comments from different papers and magazines. We have a cheery word from Central Queensland from "The Thargomindah Herald," also "The Cooper's Creek Advertiser."' We thank them, for we knew these parts in the days "When the longest day Was never then too hard." "The Narracoote Herald," of South Australia, extends a welcoming hand. "The Munyip Guar...

Tennis   on Canberra will be faithfully and fairly dealt with, and tennis players should make it a point of helping to encourage the writer who gives his time to write for them and help on the progress of tennis at Canberra.

ANZAC DAY CEREMONIAL AT THE ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE, DUNTROON. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

ANZAC DAY CEREMONIAL AT THE ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE, DUNTROON.   A strikingly impressive service was held, as is the custom on Anzac Day, at the tomb of the late General Bridges, who fell at Gallipoli and whose body was brought back and laid to rest on a mount overlooking the Military College. It is a fitting resting place, for prior to the war which took toll on his life, General Bridges was Com- mandant of the College and in that capacity won universal esteem. The service was conducted by Chap- lain Rev. Ward (C. of E) assisted by Chaplains Rev. A Carter (Presbyter- ian) and Rev. Evans (Methodist). The cadets from the College were form- ed up on the left of the dais erected for the service and decorated with the Union Jack and Australian flags. The officers and professors were also in attendance including Commandant Heritage. Lieut.-Colonel Myles was in charge of the parade. To the right of the dais members of the A.I.F. who served in the campaign as well as some veter...

SOME FINER POINTS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

SOME FINER POINTS By "Play Fair."   In previous issues of the "Pioneer."   readers will have observed the logic and wisdom of the articles therein, and in this issue we endeavour to add fur- ther to the elevation of the paper by commencing a series of articles dealing with one of the principal sporting recreations, which is certainly one of the most popular modes of passing leisure hours, and which creates that feeling of good fellowship which we keenly hope to inculcate. Tennis at Canberra, (and when I say Canberra, I mean the area under the administration of the Commission), is entering on an era of undisputed prosperity, which will undoubtedly   keep step for step in comparison to the growith of the Federal City. I venture to anticipate a tennis treat for enthusiasts in 1926 if the N.S.W. L. T. Association is successful in get- ting the American stars, viz.: Tilden, Johnstone and Richards & Co., to make a trip to Australia, and the l...

THE DESPICABLE TRADUCER [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

THE DESPICABLE TRADUCER   In these days, when we have in- stances of those who, by sheer arro- gance, have risen in Government employ, through brave, better quali- fied and loyal men taking upon them- selves the duty, as they saw it, of going out and fighting, kept the cruel Hun in his own country and pre- vented him from coming here—aye and in 60,000 instances giving their lives when they made themselves "a wall of flesh" to stem the advance of the breed of flame-throwing, poison gas-inventing, Lusitania and Nurse Cavell murdering Germans. This, and other individuals of his ilk, sheltered behind the work of these men who were fighting and dying defending their homes, and cunning- ly plotted to make themselves secure in safe Government and private bil- lets and pushed every door to pro- motion before the men who fought had doffed the khaki for civilian gar- ments. Instances are close at hand of men of this kidney, decrying any attempt to train our rising genera- tion to...

ITEMS OF INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

ITEMS OF INTEREST Football enthusiasts are busy pre- paring for their tussles this season. A good coach, strict training, and no shirking are the essentials of a good team.   Cleanly played, no game brings out the best in a man, and teaches him self-control, and how to give and take, more than football. Mark your man is right enough— but not in the vindictive sense.   Canberra has good footballers in each branch of the game, and resi- dents should follow their games and encourage them. Tennis is going to boom at Can- berra. Competitions will be keenly contested. Players are evincing an interest above normal this year. Mr. John Gale, J.P., the veteran journalist, reached his 95th year on April 17th. May he see the century —not out. Mr. Gale is writing a "History of Canberra." It will cover every aspect of its history. The chapter on the Caves and Wonderful Waterfall, as well as the one dealing with Ben Hall the Bushranger, whom he knew personally before Hall...

CANBERRA ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

CANBERRA ITEMS. Char-a-bancs, through an appre-     ciated arrangement by the Commis- sioners, now run regularly on Satur- day afternoons to Queanbeyan, from different centres of the Territorial City Area, and on Sundays and holi- days to various pleasure resorts such as The Cotter and Brindabella Falls. It only requires publicity and the demand will exceed the accommoda- tion.     The dinner to Mr. John Gale was a sincere tribute of respect, and   thanks are tendered to Miss South- well, manageress of the Hotel Can- berra, and staff, for the efficient and capable manner in which every one worked to make the dinner the un- doubted success it was. The circular issued by the Com- mission to secretaries of Progress Associations, and the various repre- sentatives of the employees on the Territory, asking for suggestions to make conditions more conducive to   health, comfort, and contentment, is a step which me...

ACCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

ACCIDENTS Two accidents which might have had more serious results occurred during the month. Foreman W. E. Johnston, one of the oldest in the Federal Capital construction, met with his accident in going to the as- sistance of some workmen who were "snagging" a log. The horses tight- ened up the chains quicker than was expected and a bar caught Foreman Johnston and splintered his right arm in two places as well as severely cutting his thigh, he was hurried to the hospital but it was found neces- sary to have him x-rayed which meant a journey to Goulburn the same night. He is progressing favor- ably, though still in the doctor's hands at Canberra Hospital. Tom O'Brien, working at Parlia- ment Buildings with his horse and dray, had a narrow escape when just at "knock-off" time his horse tried to bolt. Tom tried to hang on to him, but was knocked down, and the dray passed over his body, missing his head; he was taken to hospital suf- fering abrasions and broken ribs. He is still under t...

AN HISTORIC EVENT. HONORING A VETERAN. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

AN HISTORIC EVENT. HONORING A VETERAN. Canberra, since its birth, has had many notable gatherings but none calculated to give "Honour to whom honour is due" more fittingly than the representative gathering which sat around the tastefully decorated and well laid tables at The Hotel Canberra on Wednesday evening, the 22nd April, to celebrate the 95th year mark reached by Mr. John Gale, of "The Retreat," Queanbeyan. Press notices have appeared in many papers referring to the veteran journalist as he has attained the unique distinct- ion of being "the oldest living jour- nalist in the Southern Hemisphere" as well as unquestionably the right to be called, through his able and convincing advocacy of its natural merits as a capital city site "The Father of Canberra. More than that, next issue I shall give conclusive proof that John Gale can also claim to be the oldest living journalist in the English-speaking world. (Space forbids this issue.)     In the second ed...

CAMPAIGNING FOR CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

CAMPAIGNING FOR CANBERRA In the course of an informal con-     versation with the assembled company, subsequently to the foregoing pro-     ceedings, Mr. Gale narrated his inter- riew with the late Lord Forrest (then Sir John Forrest) on the subject of the rival sites in Dalgety and Canberra, for the Federal City. Sir John had been to the Cotter River, and after the trip had remarked to Mr. Gale that Canberra "could not hold a candle" with Dalgety in its claim for   distinction. "But you are not in a position to judge" rejoined Mr. Gale. 'The road from Queanbeyan to the Cotter runs through low lying country, and one must ascend to elevations such as Mount Stromlo, or the lesser heights of the Black Mountain, or Mount Ainslie, to obtain an adequate view of the rolling downs and exten- sive plains round about Canberra, whereas you never left the road which for the most part runs in a series of hollows." Sir John was wrat...

Washington and Canberra. SPECIAL ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Capital Pioneer — 29 April 1925

Washington and Canberra. SPECIAL ARTICLE. The "Saturday Evening Post" of 27th December contains an account of Washington in the year 1800 when the Government was moved there and an interesting comparison can be made with our own Capital City. "Washington, as a city, was then   practically non-existent, one wing only of the Capitol had been erected, which with the President's white sandstone house was a striking object "in dis-   mal contrast" with the surrounding scene. Not an avenue or street was   visible except the New Jersey Avenue —a mere road with two buildings on it—and the Pensylvania, which for considerable stretches ran through a deep morass covered with alder bushes.     Its recognizable portions were lined   with double rows of Lombardy pop- lars guarding a pathway usually filled with stagnant water. In dry weather the avenue was all dust, in wet-weather all mud, and along it the "Royal George,...
