CANNING, A.S. (ALGERNON STRATFORD). - New Guinea. Report of Inquiry into Allegations of Flogging and Forced Labour of Natives.

[Melbourne], Govt Printer 1924. Foolscap, stapled as issued; 18pp. Short tear in a couple of margins. ¶ All is well in New Guinea. "I have decided, after careful consideration and examination of their testimony ... that their evidence is not trustworthy - more particularly as all the official and other evidence available is in conflict therewith." Besides, they all changed their stories soon after. Two statements that appear again and again may seem paradoxical to you: 'natives are untrustworthy and will lie'; and 'all natives denied they had been mistreated'. You are wrong.
