Japanese Trade with Australia.
The Japanese appear to be seriously turning their attention to the prospect of deriving wealth from trade with Australia. It is stated that the proposal to establish woollen mills in Japan was suggested by the idea of utilising Australian wool. It lias also been pointed out that the cheap tweeds mauu.V;t;!red in Australia might meet with an on tended ’-uniat. A writer in a Jr .-mesa . u.- “ Choya Shim* bui>,” '•'■"c? t! ..i d- profit can be ezpoet* ‘y.. . uv; ;■ '• < j chants from trod--vidi Co'vn, v.'t’i which commercial ns i- oli-ii'ly boon opened, as -h;il o ivintry ft‘uual' -v.id poor ; while as c t'h. ft-i •... , t.’r.-).,]y largely in the hands id ■: .uu-,- : ~’>.l ,4moricans, the •j!ip»ncs« w.li in'-.-* s id further difficulty in making bead-.. ■■:y in that direction. These ob ject b us, ho contends, will not apply in the '..iso of Australia, which is separated from Japan by only a comparatively narrow tract of water. The Government is encouraging the idea by pending samples of Japanese productions to’ the Sydney exhibition, and providing a free return passage for intending exhibitors. The writer‘to the “ Choya Shimbun” considers the efforts to establish a trade in rice and other food stuffs in competition with Annan and other rice exporting countries, and in articles for daily use rather than in costly and luxurious objects, will be most likely to be successful. Shipbuilding in its most advanced form, the construction of steamers is now being prosecuted by native enter* prise at Nagasaki.
