Excerpt from Brown Men and Women: Or the South Sea Islands in 1895 and 1896
Most English boys would have to look up the dictionary if suddenly confronted with, and asked the meaning of, barratry, but to us in West Coast goldfield days it was almost a household word. Handy schooners, filled at Dunedin with everything useful for an alluvial gold rush, were quite as handy for a South Sea island. At the new goldfield township of Hokitika, on the almost unknown, at any rate unexplored, west coast of the Middle Island of New Zealand, consignees waited long in vain. Then the brig Sara/i, or the clipper-built, topsail schooner Rover, was given up as lost with all hands. Insurances were paid. The sailors' widows wept, and married again. The captain and crew died to New Zealand, and rose happily in the heaven of Tonga, Vavau, or Samoa. The Rove} was painted afresh, out of ship's stores, or, may be, out of cargo. Her name was altered, a new set of papers forged, her cargo exchanged for pearl-shell and cocoanut-oil. Native men and women, bought at auction or from the chiefs at Nukffalofa, or Leuka, or more economically deported, at first hand, from some lonely island.
