This chapter provides the arguments presented during the 1919 trial after the 1917–1918 War. Reporting on the conflict's causes profondes, Governor Jules Repiquet argued that the rebels' actions had been directed more against “the settlers” than against “the administration.” Notwithstanding numerous “direct and immediate causes” that implicated the administration, notably the misconduct of the Koné syndic of native affairs, Repiquet insisted (citing naval officer Henri Rivière's account of the 1878 war) that the more ancient cause of the conflict was “the antagonism existing between the two races present.” Colonial Inspector Pégourier, accepted the administration's argument that “incidental reasons” were less important than the “the antagonism of races.”

Keywords:   Jules Repiquet, 1917–1918 War, Henri Rivière, Pégourier, antagonism of races, 1919 trial
