. Order Sent Here
MELBORNE. Australia, Feb. li.
Discovery, that the Australian gov
ernment had placed orders in thr
United States for building of .fouH
teen wooden sailing ships, has arous
ed; the trade! unionist to attack th
government. The criticism is inten
sified by the charge that the govern
ment has been shipping Australian
lumber to American yards for the
construction of the vessels.
The Premier, William IL. Hughes Is
acused of having broken faith wth
the Australian ship rights by glvliig
the American workmen the contracts
instead of having the vessels built
Mr. Hughes replied Ty saying that
the ships were ordered from the
United States to meet the critical sit
uation and that with the cooperation
of Australian' workmen, the govern
ment was ready to engage in tllp
building In Australia. He said that
the last information from the United
States was that the construction cf
the fourteen vessels was being expedited-
Commenting upon the affair, W.
A. JJrown, secretary of the Port
Philip 8hip Wrights Society, said:
"It seems disgraceful that, while
Mr. Hughes has been agitating for
shipbuilding in Australia, Austral
ian trad em en should have been so
hoodwinked in regard to the scheme
and that vessels are to be built in
America Instaed of Australia, espec
ially when timber has to be pent from
here for the purpose."
