  • 15 Mar 1882: THE BELGIAN EXPORT COMPANY (Limited). Capital, £200,000. Head Office. ANTWERP, BELGIUM.
    Messrs De Paula, Mackley, and Co , 24 Market buildings, Collins street west, Melbourne, and 5 East India Avenue, London.
    This company has been formed by a body of manu facturers aud capitalists in Belgium, with the object of promoting direct trade between that country and the colonies of Australia.
    Some of the shareholders were exhibitors at the Sydney and Melbourne Exhibitions, but beyond securing a certain number of awards, no practical result was achieved. Such displays, unless supported by responsible agents on the spot, prepared to supply intending purchasers not only with all the information requisite to judge the commercial value of the goods exhibited, but also to guarentee prompt deliveries and to afford the usual facilities of payment, are generally speaking of an unprofitable nature to the exhibitor.
    To meet these requirements, the directors have in structed their general agents, Messrs De Paula, Mackley, and Co , to select a suitable warehouse in Melbourne, and this they intend to keep well stocked with goods for which a ready sale may be anticipated. A description of these will be announced in due course.
    It is intended to establish similar stores in the other Australian capitals.
    As regards the direct importation of Australian products into Belgium and other Continental coun tries, the company's agents are instructed to give this subject their most careful attention, and Australians who take an interest in the extension of the trade of their country are kindly requested to further this object by communicating with Messrs De Paula, Mackley, and Co.
    It may be here stated that Belgium is not only a large consumer of products for which Australia is famous - namely, wool, tallow, grain, hides, and copper, but also to a great extent a carrier of these for the French, German, and Swiss markets.
    The annual home consumption may be estimated at £10,000,000, and the value of the goods carried through the country at £9,000,000 per annum.
    Antwerp is most favourably situated for this traffic, and the directors are sanguine that this port will be come one of the most important markets for Australian produce.
    Of the manufactures exported by Belgium, the following may be mentioned as the leading items - Iron of every description, machinery, zinc, lead, window glass, glassware, woollens, cotton and linen fabrics, paper, candles, spirits, and chemicals.
    It will thus be seen that the proposed operations afford the basis for a sound and mutually advantagious trade.
    The directors, while being assured that the course of trading which they have undertaken will be for the advantage of the commerial community, trust that they have made such arrangements as will meet with general approval, and they hope by the earnest efforts of the company and their representatives in carrying on the business as stated, and with such modifications as experience may suggest, to secure the support of the Australian public.
    For all particulars and information respecting this company please refer to Messrs De Paula, Mackley, and Co., 24 Market buildings, Collins street west, Melbourne.
    Antwerp, January, 1882. Thomas Cole Mackley2
  • 4 Oct 1882: In accordance with anticipation, Messrs. de Paula, Mackley and Co., representing the Belgian Export Company, received a repeated telegram on 2nd Sept. from their principals in Belgium, in which the price of the five locomotives for which they tendered was given as £2751, to be delivered in six months; Mr. Bent is satisfied with the offer, and its formal acceptance has been made. This completes the number of locomotives to be purchased outside the colony, ten having been ordered from Beyer, Peacock and Co., of Manchester ; ten from the Baldwin Manufacturing Company of Philadelphia; and five from the Belgian Company referred to above. Thomas Cole Mackley3
    About 12 months ago we noticed the fact that an organisation called the Belgian Export Company had commenced business in Melbourne. This company, as was announced in the prospectus published in our columns at the time, was formed by a body of manufacturers and capitalists in Belgium with the object of promoting direct trade between that country and Australia, but principally in the first instance, at all events - with Victoria. Belgium, it was pointed out, produces a large number of manufactures which Australia consumes, while Belgium is not only a large consumer of products for which Australia is famous, such as wool, tallow, grain, hides, and copper, but to a great extent is a carrier of these to the French, German, and Swiss markets. The proposed operations thus afforded, the pro moters submitted, a basis for a sound and muta ally advantageous trade. Arrangements were made for introducing Belgian manufactures into Australia, and on the other hand, the company's agents in Melbourne, Messrs De Paula, Mackley, and Co, were instructed to make every effort in their power to encourage a direct importation of Australian products into Belgium and other Continental countries. After the lapse of 12 months it will be of interest to note the progress which has been made in carrying out the object in view. It is to be remarked at the outset that companies of this sort can only be successful on the basis of reciprocal trade. If Belgian goods are introduced on a large scale they must be paid for in Australian products. Complete reciprocity, however, cannot be attained at once. At the beginning, the imports of Bel gian goods into Victoria will necessarily be greater than the export of Victorian pro ducts to Belgium. Belgian manufactures are already known and appreciated in Australia, and a market for them may be said to be established. But while there is a constant and active demand in Belgium for such products as Australia can supply, the quality of Australian products is unknown to the Belgians. It is the function, of course, of the company to bring these products into notice and establish them in the Belgium and other Continental markets, and this function the company is duly discharging. It commenced operations by shipping Belgian goods to Melbourne, and by tendering for and obtaining contracts for the supply of ironwork such as steel rails, carriage wheels, and fittings. In this branch of its operations the company has met with considerable encouragement. It has introduced large quantities of bar, rod, sheet, and plate iron, which have been worked up by Victorian manufacturers for Victorian use. A good trade has also been found for softgoods and articles of various kinds which are not manufactured in the colony.
    The following, Messrs DePaula, Mackley and Co inform us, is a list of the principal Government and other public contracts entered into by the company during the period under review, with the total amounts of each in round numbers: -With the Victorian Railway department- Contract for steel rails and fastenings 30,630 tons, £195,000, five locomotives, £14000, 60 railway carriage wheels, £5 000, 5,000 tons steel rails &c, transferred to our company, £35000.With contractors to the Victorian Railway department -Contract for upholstering and fitting railway carriages including window glass, £ 10,000.With the Maryborough Water Trust -Water pipes contract, £ 27,000 With the Tasmanian Government -Contract for steel rails and fastenings for the Mersey and Deloraine railway £ 21000 With the New South Wales Government - Iron telegraph poles and fittings £ 500. This makes altogether £ 307,500. In addition to the above the company has secured indents for contractors railway plant, tram rails, pig iron, quicksilver, newspaper, soft goods, &c , which, with the goods already imported and on the way for stock, would amount to £100,000 more.
    While the importation of Belgian goods has been going on, active steps have been taken to develop a return trade by sending to Belgium samples and trial shipments of Vic- torian products, as for example wool, wheat, wine, tallow, skins and hides, furs &c. For all these articles there is a constant and steady demand in Belgium, and as the company does not confine its operations to that country, but has agencies in Germany, France, and other parts of the Continent, there is every prospect that an extensive market for Australian products will be found. This anticipation is not based on mere con jocture From the advices which have been received by Messrs de Paula, Mackley, and Co , it is believed that Australian produce will be very welcome in Belgium. There is wool, for example. Belgium is a large consumer of this article, of which she imports largely from South America. The South American wool, however, is not as clean nor so generally acceptable to manufacturers as Australian, and when the latter is known it will become firmly established in the Belgian markets. Again, the quantity of raw material treated in the Belgian tanneries and fellmongeries is very great, so that a steady demand for Aus tralia hides and skins may be expected. The Belgian fur manufactories also absorb large quantities of raw material of which Victoria and the other Australian colonies are in a position to furnish a large supply. The company has already sent shipments of rabbit skins and the skins of native animals, together with specimens of Victorian made rugs, &c , in order to show how the raw material is worked up here. Belgium has been long noted for its fur manufactures, which it supplies in large quantities to countries where warm clothing is required, and Belgian ingenuity may be reckoned upon for turning to good account the materials of which Auatralia possesses such an abundant supply. There is also in Belgium a market for Australian tallow, and business in this product has already been done. As to wine, it may he stated that the company's agents, before the Bordeaux Exhibition was held, sent some samples of wines to Antwerp, where they were submitted to a number of experts. The wines were spoken very highly of, and the only objection found was that which was made subsequently at Bordeaux, viz., that the price was too high. Australian wines are required by Continental manufacturers principally for blending with other wines, and for this purpose cheapness, as well as soundness, is an essential. It has been suggested to the Belgian manufacturera that they should establish a company for the purpose of buying up and blending in Australia the wines of the small growers , and that they should also take up land and plant vineyards in Victoria and the other Australian colonies, bringing out from Belgium men skilled in vine growing and wine making. If this were done-and there seems to be a probability of it-we should have Belgium assisting to develop one of our most important industries and giving us at the same time fresh population of the sort we most require. Belgium appears determined to push trade in every direction, and especially with the Australian colonies. We are informed that a second company, similar to the one under notice, has been started in Brussels, and that the formation of other companies under tbe like conditions has been spoken of. The King of the Belgians who takes a lively interest in international commerce, has been kept informed of what has been going on by the Belgian Consul in Melbourne, and has expressed his satisfaction thereat. So much importance does Belgium attach to the extension of her commerce with foreign parts that she has founded a school of commerce, in which prizes of the nature of "commercial scholarships" if the expression may be used, are given. Provision is made by which the students most successful in the examinations are allowed a sum equal to about £210 per annum for three years, on condition that they travel or engage in trade in foreign countries, and send home periodical reports on matters that have come under their observation relating to trade and commerce. One of these successful students has found his way to Melbourne and has associated himself with the Belgian Export Company for the purpose of acquiring a knowledge of the Australian trade. It may be said in conclusion that the growth of the Australian-Belgian trade, and generally of trade between the Australian colo nies and the Continent, will be greatly promoted by the improved steam communi- cation which is one of the features of modern progress.There has already been established a direct line of steamers between Melbourne and Hamburg, the Messageries Maritimes Company furnish a monthly service with Marseilles, and it is expected that before long there will be direct communication with Austria. The Austrian Lloyd's already run steamers from Trieste to India and China, and it is believed that an extension of the service to Australia is in contemplation. Thomas Cole Mackley4

Henry George Swallow

M, #10286, b. 1854, d. 28 Oct 1894

Upper Beaconsfield

In April 1889 Henry George Swallow bought Lots 5 and 18 of Martin's Subdivision (GEM-D-1) in the centre of Upper Beaconsfield. These two blocks were to the eastern side of the Assembly Hall (now part of the Community Complex ground). On this land he erected a baker's shop. He had another store in Berwick (pt lot 9, section 16) on High Street, where he lived with his family. He also owned 1 1/2 acres of land (lots 7.9.10 Sec 1 New Berwick). By Aug 1892 the land in Upper Beaconsfield was mortgaged to the Commercial Bank and they eventually repossessed it. The same happened to his 1.5 acres in New Berwick. At the time of his death there was no property mentioned, thus the bank would have re-possessed the land before his death.
Henry George Swallow died on 28 Oct 1894 when he was 40 years old. He is buried in the Berwick Cemetery.1,2
