Adelaide j move to punish native killers train hits motor car at crossing urgent request from Darwin fears of massacre in arnhem land by the mail special representative Canberra saturday. Following the murder by Caledon Bay natives of con stable Mccoll which is the culmination of a Long record of killings arrangements Are being made by the Federal government to equip a punitive expedition against the aboriginal slayers. This is being done in response to urgent requests from the administrator at Darwin who strongly advocates an expedition. According to Darwin advices there is fear of a Gene ral massacre of missionaries and other Whites in arnhem land unless Strong measures Are taken by the government against the Caledon Bay natives. Must be taught lesson the supplies for the expedition will travel to Darwin in the Steamer Larou Bra. The equipment will include a 6pecial portable wireless set which will enable the expedition to keep in constant touch with Darwin. Although the minister of the Interior or. Perkins said today that it bad not been finally decided yet whether the expedition would actually be 6ent out the general impression in Canberra is that it will be authorised. The minister has consulted several of his colleagues on the question and will disuse the matter with the prime minis Ter or. Lyons on detailed report about the in Der of Constable Cooil bag Ben received by the department of the Interior Froin the administrator. Who strongly urges that a punitive expedition should set ont As soon As possible. It is essential he says to teach the Cedon Bay natives a lesson. So far. They had been unimpressed by the action taken by the government following the Fri girder of a japanese party some months ago and had defiantly threatened to at tack any additional police parties sent out against them. This threat bad been conveyed to Dar win by Friendly tribes. The minister Points ont that the threat was put into effect with fatal results when Constable Mccoll was speared to death. As a result of their Success in this at tack the natives had become bolder and. It tras feared that missions would be in danger of attack unless immediate action were taken by the government to sip them that they could not take life with impunity. The administrator Points ont that the expedition sent to apprehend the murderers of the japanese sailors Lias resulted in the death of Constable. Mccoll. And it a apparent that sterner measure arc necessary. A the arnhem land natives be the most warlike of All the australian tribes. Thev have a formidable record of murder Dat ing from the first White occupation of Northern Australia. Since time immemorial they have waged an offensive against malays and others who have touched the australian coast and their prowess has reached the islands lying to the North of Australia. They have always resented White intrusion. What expedition will do the object of the punitive expedition will be to impress on the natives that the administration cannot be trifled with. The tribes concerned will be required to sur Render the natives guilty of the Mccoll outrage and to give hostages for Good behaviour. Advices received by the minister indicate that Public opinion in Darwin is aflame. The administration is being urged by ail sections to take action lest there be a massacre of All missionaries in arnhem land. The general opinion is that Only a die play of Force can Avert a catastrophe. Arnhem land natives Are vicious by instinct. Killing is part of their tribal code and they Are inspired by an implacable hatred of White people. Their enemies Are ambushed and no Quarter is shown Darin people say that they roust be taught to respect the White Man s Law otherwise the life of so White person throughout this vast area trill be Safe. The minister has been advised that a Section of aborigine Protection association officials is in favor of Strong measures. The views of the missionaries on the subject differ a Good Deal but those in arnhem land Are stated to be extremely apprehensive. On monday my Perkins will discuss to question by Telephone with the per manent head of the department or. Brow who will then have reached mount la on. Hie Way to Darwin. This 2,500-mile conversation will deter mine whether or. Brown is to proceed immediately to Darwin to take charge of the organisation of the expedition. The present plan if for a car to be sent from Alice Springs right across Central Australia to mount Isa to pick nor. Brown. Expedition As last resort a punitive expedition against the Primi Tive natives of arnhem land to ave Sre the deaths of five japanese fishermen and Constable a. S. Mccoll should be a last resort according to the director of the museum or. H. M. Hale. Or. Hale added that it was difficult to ascertain exactly what was behind the natives action. What were the japanese doing there lie asked. Were they poach ing or had they the right to fish in the Waters or. Hale said that probably some of the japanese had the Richt to fish and that others were poaching. If they were poaching they were asking for trouble. It would be necessary to knew the whole of the fact to give definite opinion what should be done but a Puri Tive expedition should be a last resort. Generally it was better to leave the natives alone. If they Carue in Contact with White people their old tribal Cus Toms were broken up and they soon went to pieces. Scientists believed that the Only Chance of preserving the aboriginal race was to have reserves in which they could roam undisturbed. Or. X. B. Tindale ethnologist of the Adelaide museum who spent two years with the arnhem land natives said that half measures were no Good in handling aborigines. There were Only two things to do either to let the natives alone or to control them. Or. Tindale lived in arnhem land from 1921 to 1922. He found even then that the aborigines were beginning to feel embittered against the Whites. They feared the loss of their women. Generally the natives were Friendly but it was necessary for White people to take every precaution and to be firm. Any 6ign of weakness was a temptation to the natives which would not be resisted. For example the leaving of stores unguarded simply invited theft. Above a native holding a Spear of the Tyoe used by the Caledon by natives. Right the strik ing head of a roote Eylandt native.
