THE OLDEST SHIP. Still Working—Story of "Jane." [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

THE OLDEST SHIP. Still Working-Story of "Jane." Jane, the oldest vessel in the world still in commission, has just changed hands. She is a forty-ton ketch, built in Runcorn in 1800, but after 126 years of sea-faring she has found another willing purchaser. Her earliest history is obscure; the name of her makers is not shown on her register, but for a long period she was employed by a shipping firm at Bridgwater. Afterwards she passed into the family of Captain L. P. Smart, of Uphill , near Weston-super-Mare, in whose hands she remained nearly fifty years. Now Jane has once more been sold to a Bristol firm, and in her old age she is being used as a lighter, plying her trade up andi down the Avon. Jane has known war and peace, legitimate trading and perhaps, in tho years shortly after her first commission, the thrills of smuggling. Jane was young when the Penin- sular War was taking place, and no doubt she bucketed her way up the Bristol Channel, which has always been her home, in com...

FROM COAL MINER TO HIGH COMMISSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

FROM COAL MINER TO HIGH COMMISSIONER. Sir Joseph Cook's Entry Into Politics. By "YARRUM." With the passing of The Lithgow Mercury into the hands of a syndicate controlling several newsprints west of the Blue Moun- tains, N.S.W., one of the best, as well as one of the most popular, journalists of Australia passes into retirement (if possible). I refer to Mr. James Ryan, M.L.C.; by pressmen familiarly known as "Truthful James," a high standard to live up to,-but James Ryan achieved it. His pungent forceful articles were masterpieces of logic when "Jimmy" was forced to use his pen to right a wrong br plead a cause. When a slip taken by the miners was, in his judgment, a wrong one, J.R. would fear- lessly tell thron so. Invariably his opinion was right. If, on the other hand, innovations by the local owners or the Hoskins steel man- agement were oppressive, his pen would cut deep-not with the vituperative vapourings of sensational journalism, but sound, logical, scathing criticism-clean...

McCaudle- The Roamer [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

McCaudle - The Roamer BY YARRUM. "Out-back Australia!''-and where doe« "outback" begin? At Bourke, when speaking of distanct stations on the Paroo, or Warrego. Bushmen speak of them as "out-back*'; yet when you reach the places, and ask where a former manager, jackeroo, or stockman, has gone, the answer will be either that he has gone "out-back" to Cooper's Creek, or Thar- gomindah, or Cloncurry, or that he has "gone in" somewhere about Wilcannia, or Swan Hill. Yet city folk, when the latter places are men- tioned, reply: "Oh, that's in the 'Never-never Country.* " I will content myself with the old stock- man's definition of where "out-back" is, who, when asked, replied: it was "out near San- down." The rover of the bush seems to have one ambition, and that is to get away from the confines of a town, the noise of a railway engine, and the non-satisfying ideas of "town* enjoyment-to the open spaces, where he can breathe freely the eucalypti-laden atmosphere, live close to nature, an...

Progress of Construction at Canberra [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

Progress of Construction at Canberia Activities at Parliament House are now practically confined to the laying of special wood block paving and rubber flooring, and the final services of the mechanical and en- gineering trades. The vast undertaking, which was commenced in January, 1924, should therefore be complete early next year. The furnishing and equipment of the Legislative Chambers, and the numerous offices and other rooms have all been ordered, the final de- liveries being due in February next. The grounds and gardens, which will materially add to the attractive appearance of the building, are taking definite shape, and tree planting and the construction of roads and footpaths are in progress. Of the other more important buildings Government House is well advanced, wall til- ing and joinery work indicating the present stage of progress. The Prime Minister's re- sidence, a white walled, green roofed, two storied building, attractively located near the foot of the Red Hill ridg...

Canberra- How It Developed [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

Canberra - How It Developed BT GEORGE A. TAYLOR. Australia, at the end of its first century, held six States, with boundaries almost as strongly defined as those dividing antagonistic nations. Each mainland State had a differ- ently-gauged railway line, with officious cus- toms-brigands holding up travellers passing across each boundary, whilst the two chief cities, Sydney and Melbourne, sized each other like the chief parties to a vendetta! The fact of the matter was that Australia was leaping ahead, and each State envied the progress of its brothers, like competitors in a race. Envy, after all, is only ignorance. The customs-barrier was a hedge that prevented proper understanding. It only wanted some national movement to introduce the young people to each other. The barriers fell at Federation. With Australian Federation rose the ques- tion of a capital city. Only one State could have the plum, and the dying spark of envy flared again. In the battle of the voices Syd- ney and Melb...

Welcome Tributes. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

Welcome Tributes. lu our endeavor to produce an historical magazine calculated to stimulate interest and honor the memory of the early settlers and pioneers of Australia, and Canberra district particularly, a main desire is to acquaint read- ers with the sterling stamp of men who ven- tured their all, in the days when a journey to our shores was a hazard, the prospects dark, and monetary reward a doubtful quality. These men faced the future with dauntless courage to lay the foundation of a new land. To-day our prosperity is due to their self sacrificing pioneering1 work. The first number of The Pioneer brought to us many appreciative, unsolicited tributes of congratulation. We heartily thank those who have so thoughtfully and generously sent us words of encouragement. We cannot find space to include all, but quote some ais evidence of the range of readers; those who may think their letters are overlooked will pardon want of space, but the appreciation is none the less deep and welco...

BEN HALL. Bushranger's Charity [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

BEN HALL. Bushranger's Charity Mr. James Frost, of Thirroul, still "going strong" at 91 years of age, claims to be the oldest living coach driver in Australia, who, in the good days of coaching, before trains took to the trail, handled "the ribbons'' for Cobb & Co. Before the train puffed its way on a steel road over the Blue Mountains, he drove the four-horse coach from Penrith to Bathurst, and, later on, in gold-digging days, from Bathurst to Forbes, and Orange. He knew Ben Hall, the bushranger, leader of the Ben Hall-Gilbert and Dunn gang, intimately. Mr. Frost states: "Ben Hall was a good man driven bad.'' He used to bring the out- laws groceries and provisions, which were left at some pre-arranged place. Once, Hall and his gang stuck up the coach driven by this veteran whip. There was only one woman among the passengers, and she had £150, which she had placed under the driver's seat. Ben Hall, on being told that the woman was nearly blind and was going to Sydney to see ...

"THE PARISH OF CANBERRA." Federal Presbyterian Assembly Appoints Rev. John Walker as First Minister. [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

"THE PARISH OF CANBERRA-" Federal Presbyterian Assembly Appoints Rev. John Walker as First Minister. The Rev. John Walker, of St. Andrew's Church, Ballarat, has been unanimously ap- pointed by the Federal Presbyterian Assembly as minister of the Canberra parish. Professor R. Gk Macintyre, of Sydney, who moved that the Assembly appoint Mr. Waiker as minister of the parish of Canberra, paid a tribute to the splendid work which had been performed by him during his forty years' ministry in Australia. Known to everyone for his geniality and winsome personality, Mr. Walker was admirably suited in every way to represent a great church in the capital city. His reputation was known throughout Austra- lia, and his reputation for stimulating the spirit of liberality was proverbial. (Laughter and applause). But, coupled with his unique qualifications for the raising of funds, he was a true minister of the gospel, who had always been mindful of the spiritual welfare of lus people. The duties of ...

Early Canberra [Newspaper Article] — The Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine — 16 November 1926

Early Canberra ROBERT CAMPBELL. [Continuing his history of "Early Canberra," Mr. Henry Selkirk, F.R.A.H.S., in this article, tells the romantic story of how Robert Camp- bell was awarded a grant of 5000 acres at Dun- troon.-Ed.] Of all the early pioneers of "Limestone Plains," now the Federal Capital area, none looms so large as Robert Campbell, familiarly known as "Merchant Campbell," or "Campbell of the Wharf." Though not actually the first settler, for in that respect Lieutenant Joshua John Moore takes pride of place, Mr. Camp- bell stands out as the leading figure of that early settlement on the Molonglo River, at that time the most southern outpost of pastoral occupation in New South Wales. Robert Campbell, youngest son of the last Laird of Ashfield in Argyllshire, was born at Greenock, in Scotland, April 28, 1769, and coming of a younger branch of the Camp- bells of Duntroon Castle, was thus a "Cadet of Duntroon," as set forth on his memorial tablet in St. Philip's Church, Syd...
