Portland — Australian grain dealers
are establishing themselves In the
W is t Coast trade, a zone reached from
the Northwest in times when tonnage
was plentiful, and two charters were
made last week for the business from
the Antipodes to South America, the
American ship Star o f Poland being
fixed at 70 shillings and the barkentine
Hawaii at 76 shillings to load wheat
at Adelaide for Callao.
Exporters here do not look for a ma­
terial movement o f Australian cereal
to the West Coast, and reason that
with the difference in the market
Northwest firms easily could com|>ete
with the Australians.
But the ton­
nage feature is a drawback, besides
the big movement from this district at
present is by railroad to the Atlantic
and thence by water to Europe.

Corvallis— An agitation was started
this week by Corvallis people to have
it made a provision o f the automobile
laws o f the state of Oregon that no
person who drinks liquor to excess or
who is known to be a reckless driver
shall be permitted to drivo an automo­
bile on the highways o f the state. It
is also argued by some that an exam­
ination o f the heart should precede
the granting o f such privilege.
The demand for Buch a law followed
an automobile accident in which two
drunken men and a woman came near
losing their lives, and the public high­
way was made dangerous for others
because o f their reckless driving.
