OF LOCAL SIGNIFICANCE. (Received 9.45 a.m.) MELBOURNE, this day. The managing director of two 'British planting companies in Samoa says the unrest is of little more than local significance. The white residents and the majority of natives are satisfied with German rule, and the presence of the warships was simply to make a demonstration and impress the natives.
