(1856-1925) Australian magistrate and author, in whose Lost Race tale, Beyond the Ice: Being a Story of the Newly Discovered Region Round the North Pole: Edited from Dr Frank Farleigh's Diary by G Read Murphy (1894) an advanced civilization called Zara is discovered, along with three less advanced societies, around the North Pole. The former has flourished for hundreds of years, thanks to a modicum of Weather Control, highly-developed Power Sources and social controls along lines promulgated by Edward Bellamy; during the course of the tale, Zara establishes a Pax Aeronautica over the other three lands.
