MOTOR PROVERBS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

MOTOR PROVERBS Take care of the car or thieves will take care of it themselves.   Time tide and road hogs wait for no man.   An oiling a day keeps the repair bill away. A little knowledge of driving is a dangerous thing.   Take care of the car; the ditch   can take care of itself. A fool and his license are soon parted.       It is a wise driver who knows his own failings.   Spare the brake and spoil the car. Hooters speak louder than words. A stop in time saves a fine.   A car in hand is worth two in   the ditch. An overhaul in time saves nine. Learn to drive well before start-   ing out alone. Don't speed.     Always be prepared to make a quick stop.   Slow down to five miles an hour at street car lines.   Always sound your horn when pass- ing another car. Don't use your bright lights in t...

HEADLIGHTS Danger at Night [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

HEADLIGHTS Danger at Night One of the unpleasant concomitants of the heavy motor traffic in evidence in Canberra in proportion to the pop- ulation is the dazzle by night of motor headlamps along frequented thorough- fares.     While it is admitted that the curves in the streets of Canberra call for more than usual care on the part of drivers at night and in this connection powerful headlamps are necessary at times, there appears to be no reason why lamps should not be dimmed more frequently along the highways such as Commonwealth Avenue. The daz- zling headlamps encountered In Com- monwealth Avenue every night, are a menace to both vehicle drivers and pedestrians, and far more considera-   tion might be extended than is display- ed by drivers who rarely, if ever, dim their headlamps.       Owing to the rapid increase of motor, cars and trucks on the roads the dazzle of headlamps is liable to become a very ...

AUSTRALIAN TRADE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

AUSTRALIAN TRADE Trade figures for the Commonwealth for July show that imports in fairly substantial volume found their way into the different States. The largest receipts were by New South Wales at £5,852, 493, the Victorian figures being £4,534,358, out of total imports of £13,-   278,770.     Exports were £9,828,327, so that the   balance in favour of imports was £3,445,443 against £5,208,818 shown in July last year. Shipments of £3,400,- 487 of gold sent from Sydney on behalf of the Commonwealth Bank to the     United Stales helped the exports, but of these are omitted, the total of ex- ports is only £6,427,840, against £7,008,- 173 last year.             As the gold shipped represented im- portations a year earlier from America and South Africa, allowance should be made for it. Exports generally were lower because of the nat...

ENGLISH SPEAKING TOUR Victorian Delegation VISIT TO CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

ENGLISH SPEAKING TOUR Victorian Delegation VISIT TO CANBERRA A party consisting of about 70 mem- bers of the Victorian Branch of the     English Speaking Union will be visiting Canberra next week, and will make a stay of three days. The tour is the result of efforts of the secretary of the Common Interests committee of the union (Mrs. Alys Gipps). The Federal Capital Commis-   sion is providing facilities to render the visit as pleasant as possible for the party, which will make Hotel Canberra its headquarters. Arriving by special   train on Wednesday morning, the party will visit the Cotter River, and on re- turn to the city, a tree planting cere-   mony will take place.

WHAT THE PRINCE LIKES [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

WHAT THE PRINCE LIKES While he is most careful never to hurt anyone's feelings, the Prince of Wales (remarks a London "Pictorial") has a perfect horror for "white ele- phants," and those objects of peculiarly   brilliant ugliness that characterised the     Victorian era. The Duchess of York is just as modern in her tastes as her Royal sister-in-law, Princess Mary, but she doesn't share the latter's love of antiques to such a great extent. She has, too, a very feminine love of   cushioned comfort, soft lights and fires in her rooms. The Prince of Wales     has received a lot of help from her in the furnishing of his houses, for the   two are tremendous friends.

PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

PERSONAL The Prime Minister (Mr. S. M. Bruce)- accompanied by Mrs. Bruce left the Essendon Aerodrome at 8.40 a.m. on Thursday morning by aeroplane for Adelaide (Telegraphs our Mel-   bourne correspondent. He was due at Adelaide at 3 p.m.. There was no fare- well ceremony, a few personal friends   and representative citizens only gath- ering to see him off. This was the   first occasion on which the Prime   Minister had travelled from one State Capital to another by air.   Sir Neville Howse (Minister for De- fence) and Lady Howse, left Mel-   bourne for London on Tuesday by the Mooltan.

A CONTINUING CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

A CONTINUING CITY. Very few years have elapsed since public attention was drawn to the prophetic quality whlch invested an in- scription in the historic burial ground of St. John the Baptist's Church, Can- berra. The memorial which marks the resting place of two of the district's sturdy pioneers bears the text "For here ho have no continuing city, but seek one to come." The remark- able coincidence which unconsciously connected the fourth oldest grave in   Canberra with the future of the Fed- eral Capital City, has been remarked upon by thousands of visitors to Can- berra and has in turn been recountered all over the world. Comparatively few indeed who have heard or told of this interesting fact have realised that while they contemplated the prophetic meaning read in the fragment of scrip- ture, the prophecy has faded into ful- filment. For here in the happy vale chosen as the seat of our nationhood, a city has risen wherein the destinies of the Commonwealth of Australi...

Topics of the Times Heme of Federal Bodies. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

Topics of the Time Home of Federal Bodies. Within the last lew weeks there has been several indications of the realisa- tion by Australians of the future im- portance ol their new Federal Capital City, and of their desire to accord it due recognition by having Canberra as the headquarters of the various public bodies. The Returned Soldiers' and Sailors' Imperial League is considering the removal headquarters to Can- berra and meanwhile is recognising the Federal Capital Territory as having status equal to an Australian State. The decision of the Federal Council of the Institutes of Architects, to form an Australian Institute of Architects men- tioned Canberra as the seat of the new body. In the formation of the Aus-   tralian Colleges of Surgeons' the im- portance due to Canberra was recog-   nised immediately the question of the College's headquarters was considered. Other Institutions are contemplating the step, and the frequency with which public bodies are visiting ...

CIVIC CENTRE ADDITIONAL LEASES IO BE MADE AVAILABLE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

CIVIC CENTRE ADDITIONAL LEASES TO BE MADE AVAILABLE It is the intention of the Federal Capital Commission to make available additional business sites in Civic Centre   during the next few months. The sale of additional sites, however, is depend- ant upon the existing brick shortage being removed, and the ability of the commission to guarantee supplies of building material to leaseholders, who will be under covenants to build within a short period. When 21 leases wore sold in the   Civic Centre in May last, a number of blocks in the subdivision were reserved from sale. A very keen demand has since been in evidence, and a further increase in lease values has occurred since May. In the Civic Centre blocks submitted at the May sale, there are twelve leases available and purchasers of these will probably be obliged to pay enhanced prices. Although no decision has yet been reached regarding the date of the sale   of the remaining sites, it is likely ...

Arrangements for the transfer of the Commonwealth Government staffs from Melbourne to Canberra next year, although as yet in the initial stages, are well in hand according to Col. Farr, to whom has been deputed the task of attending to the details of the big move. Certain rules and regulations have been prepared for submission to the Minister for Home and Territories, Sir William Glasgow.

WORKERS' LOSSES JUDGE'S DECLARATION Wrong Court Formula Melbourne, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

WORKERS' LOSSES JUDGE'S DECLARATION Wrong Court Formula Melbourne, Wednesday. The Deputy-President (Mr. Justice       Webb) in the Arbitration Court, de- formula on which the basic wage had been calculated, was wrong, and work- ers had lost thousands of pounds in wages. While agreeing with the Deputy- President Webb, that the workers have   lost thousands of pounds owing to incorrect compilation of basic wage, the Secretary of the Commonwealth   Council of Federated Unions (Mr. Croft) was last night unable to under-   stand the judge's declaration that the formula was wrong, nor could he un- derstand the judge's figures. Mr. Crofts declared that Melbourne's present basic wage, if compiled cor- rectly, should be £5/14/- instead of £4/12/-. He pointed out there was a big difference between the present quoted by the judge and those shown in the last quarterly adjustment of returns from the Commonwealth Stat- ...

REAL ESTATE KEEN DEMAND FOR CANBERRA LEASES [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

REAL ESTATE KEEN DEMAND FOR CANBERRA LEASES An excellent market for Business Sites particularly at Civic Centre, where several of the Blocks sold at the recent sale have changed hands at substantial increases, is reported by Messrs. Woodgers & Calthorpe. There is a good demand for Resid-   ential Leases, particularly in the Red Hill and Blandfordia Areas, where big building activities can be expected dur- ing the next few months. At Eastlake and Ainslie, there is a regular buying power for cottages on low deposit, and easy terms, running from £,1000 and £1,200, and values generally are on the increase.

AUSTRALIAN BANKS Interest in Canberra Many Sites Secured [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

AUSTRALIAN BANKS Interest in Canberra Many Sites Secured Australian banks are displaying in- creased interest in Canberra, and there are indications that other institutions than those which have purchased leases at the public sales and subsequently, will secure sites in the near future with a view to commencing operations in the Federal Capital Territory. Some banks embraced the first op- portunity of securing leases in Can- berra on December 12, 1924. Others purchased at higher prices in May last. The remaining banks will probably have   to pay higher prices still without se- curing sites quite as well situated as those who have already recognised       Canberra's importance. The announce-   ment of a definite date for the trans- fer the seat of government is acting   as an impetus to the entry of private enterprise into Canberra and no other place in Australia affords the openings for enterprise which Ca...

ANOTHER COLLAPSE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

ANOTHER COLLAPSE After a time the yields from the Hill End Mines fell off. Copper re-     ceded in price and the Peak Downs Mine suffered from the effects of pay- ing away excessive dividends, with bor- rowed money. Mines of newly-formed companies failed to justify the ex- pectations hold out in prospectuses. Calls were made, and had to be paid, as there was no "No-liability" at that time. People who had borrowed mon- ey to invest in mining were called upon to pay their creditors; and prices   of shares fell to normal quotations or became unsaleable. A long period of stagnation followed. Mining was totally neglected. The middle seventies were a trying period for members of the Stock Ex- change. A broker did not dare speak the word "mine" in talking to a client, so bitterly were felt the consequences of the Peak Downs and Hill End mania. The time for the formation of indust- rial companies had not arrived. So   the share list had sh...
