MELBOURNE,. April 17
The, annual report of, the Governor of Papua expresses .the opinion that Paoua will never become a, white man's country in the'sense that they will settle and make homes there. An interesting feature of Papuan development is the extent to which -the natives gradually come to take a greater and more important part in such development and 'fit themselves to discharge dutiesi in their new life. They are now supplying practically all the reouisite labour. The Government proposes to assist primary and technical education of the natives, which- hitherto has o onlv been done by missionaries.
