  • W. David McIntyre


THE annexation of Fiji did not solve the problem of the frontier in the South Pacific. Further expansion was demanded. A number of similar frontier questions confronted Carnarvon in 1874. The chiefs of Rotuma had requested annexation. Samoa was still coveted by New Zealanders, New Guinea attracted Australians. Vogel pressed for his chartered company and the kidnapping problem remained.
