Tho summer conference of tho pre.:
mlers of British dominions, including'
tho premier of Australia, nnd the gen
eral understanding that Australia Is
In closo sympathy with the United
States in tho matter of oriental Im
migration, makes thnt far-away com
monwealth of more than ordinary In
terest to Americans Just now.

The continent, lying thus far out

rarely visited by Americans. For most
of us knowledge of this fascinating
land is obtnined by a study of a few
pages in the back of school geoic-
raphies pages descriptive of "Aus

One of the first surprises awaiting
tho tourist from the northern hemi
sphere is to find that Australia and
New Zealand may not be grouped as
two Islands of like appearance, differ
ing mainly In size; near neighbors
which may be treated as a unit. New

Australia as Bermuda Is from New

Unique vegetation of remarkable
variety and beauty, animal life of by

tralian a never-ending sourco of in

Australia Is a large country. It Is
about fourteen times the size of
France or Germany, twenty-five times
tho size of Italy, or Ecuador, and two
and one-half times the size of Ar
gentina, Its chief competitor In "tho
southern hemisphere. Its area Is equal
to three-fourths of Europe, one-third
of all North America, or one-fourth
"t the British Empire. The continent
is almost exactly the slzo and Is near
lythe shape of the United States,
Level In Surface, Low in Elevation
Australia is the most level In sur
face and regular In outllno of all the
continents, and even of most largo is
lands. It Is also tho lowest continent,
with nn average elevation about that
of Ohio. Its surface lacks variety.
Tho change from one type of topog
raphy Is so gradual, and significant
natural features are so few and so
widely spaced that, with the excep
tion of tho Murray river, they are not
utilized In marking Uio boundaries of
The traveler In search of duplicates
of the Canadian Itockles, the Yosem
lto and tho Grand ennyon, of Nor
wegian fjords nnd Alpine scenery, need
not visit Australia. Its mountain
scenery is thnt of the southern Ap
palachians, the white mountains, and
tho low ranges of Arizona. Its plains
and plnteaus are compurable with
those of tho Rocky Mountain foothills
nnd the arid expnnses of. Utah, Idaho
Although the moutnlns are low com
pared with those of other continents,
their Influence is great, for nowhero
Is their control of rainfall nnd con
sequent distribution of vegetation nnd
people better exemplified, A bird's
eye view of.Austrnlla shows a belt of
vegetation extending along Its north
east nnd southeast edges, with a patch
on the extreme southwest corner and
another covering most of tho island
of Tasmania. In these regions, the
Tho trade winds abundantly supply
the northeast coast, but carry little
water beyond; the westerlies, the
"roaring forties" of tho sailor, deposit
their moisture on tho lands along Bass
strait and on the southwest tip of tho
continent, but hnve littlo or none to
carry Inland. Tho north coast Is al
ternately drenched nnd dried with the
coming nnd going of monsoons. Tho
center of the continent Is therefore
arid, largo parts are desert, and tho
numerous largo lakes shown on the
map are expanses of snlt mud covered
with water by Infrequent rains. Aus
trnlla's streams are fewer nnd carry
less water than those f any other
Its Forests Are Surprising.
Tho flora of Australia Is not only
beautiful, It Is unique, having no
counterpart In other lands. Of the
10,000 species of plants most of thorn
are purely Australian, and nro un
known even in New Zenland. The gen
eral Impression one gets of Australian
forests is their total unllkeness to any
thing seen elsewhere. Forms which
may bo recognized as tulip, Illy, honey
suckle and fern take on a surprising
aspect. They are not garden flowers,
but trees, nnd the landscape of which
they .form n part reminds one of the
hypothetical representations in books
of n landscnpe of MesozOlc time, a pe
riod antedating our own by millions
Tho Impression thnt one is looking
nt n landscune which has forever dis
appeared from other parts of the
world Is so vivid that the elms and
maples nnd oaks in some of the city
streets strike a Jarring note. Tho
transition from Jurassic to modern
times Is painfully abrupt.
The animals of Australia, too, are
so distinct from tho rest of tho world
that some have proposed two great
zoological realms: Australian and non-
Australian. The peculiarity lies not
only In the fact that Australian types
are not found elsewhere, but also that
families like tho cats and tho pigs,
which nre found native on nil other
continents and on many Islands, are
nbsent from Australia. Tho kangaroo
is Australia's national animal, and the
group to which It belongs, the mar
supials, Is typically Australian.
A belt of country 100 miles wldo
nlong tho cast, south and southwest
edges of Australia would Include prob
ably 80 per cent of tho commonwealth's
populntlon. There nro no Inland cities
of over 10,000 population, except six
mining camps, and the most remote
of these Is about as far from the sea
as Is Pittsburgh.
A striking featuro of the Australian
census Is the concentration of popula
tion In cities- a phenomenal situation
for nn agricultural and pastoral na
tion with less than 1 per cent of Its
nrea under cultivation nnd 47 per cent
unoccupied. The six Australian state
capitals Include 88.80 per cent of the
commonwealth's population, and five
of them are growing nt the expenso
of tho back country. No other nation,
and few states, can match these fig
ures. A "white Australia" is tho settled
policy of tho commonwealth govern
ment, the Immigration laws being so
administered as effectually to exclude
colored races. Legislation is directed
particularly to the exclusion of
Chinese, Japanese and Polynesian la
bor, not only from the lnnd, but from
employment In pearl fishing, coastwise
shipping, and on overseas steamers
holding mall contracts. '
