Former Premier of South Aus
tralia Talks to Members of
Chamber of Commerce.
The- QuaLttV Stork or Portland
eaclv "With All Warm Weather Meeds
business Men Shown Ways in Which
They Can Do Most to Aid Nation
and Allies by Encouraging
Production of Shipping.
Hon. Crawfod Vaughan, former Pre
mier of South Australia, was the prin
cipal speaker at the members' coun
cil of the Chamber of Commerce at
the weekly luncheon yesterday. Mr.
Vaughan has been occupied for the
past seven months on behalf of his
government in the interest of develop
ing: trade relations of mutual benefit
to the allied cause and in visiting the
shipbuilding plants engaged in the pro
duction of tonnage for the United
States and other countries. During
the past week Mr. Vaughan spent some
time in the Puget Sound district, where
two yards are engaged in building
ships for the Australian government.
Hon. Crawford Vaughan, Former
Premier of South Australia.
These contracts call for 14 wood ships,
some of which have already been
launched, to be used in trans-Pacific
His address yesterday was chiefly
uevoiea to acquainting the business
men with the ways in which they can
do most to aid the needs of the coun
try by encouraging the production of
shipping of foodstuffs and encouraging
the spirit manifested by the shipyard
workers who are voluntarily assuming
individual responsibilities or making
sacrifices to aid the common cause. He
related how 1100 employes of one ship
yard at Olympla worked a full shift
or Decoration day and refused to per
mit any time to be turned in for that
day's work, making that as their con
tribution to the Nation's need of more
Products Similar to Orreon.
South Australia, of which Mr.
Vaughan was formerly Prime Minister,
is one of the six states of Australia,
of which Adelaide is trve capital, and
is somewhat similar to Oregon in the
diversity and character of its products.
Its exports are wool, hides, pelts, grain,
mineral ores and hardwoods practic
ally primary products.
"Australia has 6,000,000 tons of wheat
and 100,000 tons of sugar and only
awaits sips to help supply the needs
of the allied countries for these articles
of food," said he, "and the shipbuilders
who are giving their best service in
building ships are serving the ailed
cause well.
"When the ships are provided for
this transportation across 6000 miles
between the ports on this side of the
Pacific and Australia there is abundant
call for the cargoes that will supply
tonnage in both directions! We need
a. preat deal of your lumber, and can
exchange - some of our hardwood for
your soft woods. We can furnish iron
ore, 68 per cent pure -for your steel
plants, and from our great steel works
at Newcastle, New South Wales, can
etr.d manufactured steel or ingot iron.'
"By reason of our seasons being Just
the opposite to yours there should be
a considerable interchange of fruits
and agricultural products at all times.
"The Australian orchardists, both in
the growth of citrus fruits and the
staples of the temperate .zones, are
harvesting "their- crops at the season
when .fresh, fruits, are exhausted In
America. The islands of that part of
the world also afford a great variety
of needed products. A great deal of
ct pper is picked up" in the South Pa
cific Islands and comes to your ports.
Ours is not a country of dense popu
lation, but some of our neighboring
islands have many times our own
population. Java, for instance, has
39,000,000 people."
Captain T. Templer-Powell, speaking
on the "Humorous Side of Trench Life,"
gave . an excellent insight into the
character of the British Tommy,-as
witnessed by an officer in the first
year of the war, serving in Belgium
and at Tpres. With the happy faculty
of finding the amusing side of the
most trying incidents of the war, and
interpolatng the lesson learned by the
men at the front, the British officer
was accorded enthusiastic appreciation
toy the members of the Chamber.

upon her. Vhen Mr. Bruce came home

curred he vent to the Mahoney home
and threatened his neighbor with vio
lence. Mahoney then appealed to the courts
and caused the arrest of Bruce for
threatening to commit a felony. The
case came before Judge Jones yester
day for preliminary hearing. After
