PALMEE'S   BAB.
Placer Ground.
Placer mining in the vicinity
of Palmer's Bar will be one of
the strongest attractions to the
Bar during the coining season,
It is reported that a strong company have secured a 20 years
lease of about two miles of rich
ground, and have taken up 500
inches of water. A $25,0D0 hydraulic plant will be placed in
operation by the opening of the
season.
■Big Chief.
The first payment on the bond
of $20,000, was made on Tuesday the 1st. inst. The a-
mount of the payment was
$1,500. The next payment of
$8,000 falls due on Jan. 1st; the
balance extends over a period of
one year. We learii that Mr.
Egan has a force of seven men
at work developing the property.
That an open-cut ending in a
tunnel is now in over 24 feet.
The ledge is about 5 feet in
width, and in many places the
yellow metal can be seen in the
ore. Mr. Egan has quite a number of sacks of ore ready for
shipment, and will soon ship a
carload to Trail.
Local Mining,
Business is picking up and the
prospects are improving all over
the district. A large number of
mines have been sold and bonded throughout Kasl Kootenay.
Development work has been
pushed, and the indications are
that we shall have a Klondyke
here during the coming year.
Indeed, it is the opinion of mining experts that the Fort Steele
district will become the largest
silver-lead producing district
the province.

Bonner's Perry, Oct. 27. The
Bonner's Ferry people expect
construction to commence right
away on the line from Bonnor's
Ferry to Kushkonook. Contracts hare, been let and the line
surveyed from start lo finish,
and grade stakes are to be seen
along the proposed line. This
will prove a bonanza for the
British Columbia people without doubt.
M, A. 0,
To a Route South.   France Contends
That it is in No Man's Land.
If the nows of the European
cable is to be believed Great
Britain and France are in a serious diplomatic entanglement
respecting Fashoda. It is even
assorted that rather than withdraw empty-handed in tho face
of the British claims to priority
of Egyptian title President
Faure would invite war, which
might at loast prove a diversion
for the revolutionists.
The object of the French advance on Fashoda was to defeat
the British plan of establishing
a line of communication from the
north to the south of Africa by
snatching territory which would
invest Prance with a vast empire extending from the Atlantic
to the Red sea. That this
scheme was arranged with the
utmost deliberation some time
ago is now evident.
The Bahr-el-Ghazai is a former province of the Egyptian
Soudan, south of Khartoum and
north of Equatoria. It may be
described as five times as big as
England, aud it is covered with
forests and mountains and seamed with low valleys subject to
inundation. It includes the larger portion of the basin watered
Bahr (or river) Ghazai, which,
wilh its affluents, the Bahr-el-
Arab, Jur, Rohl and Roa, forms
a labyrinth of streams.. Fashoda
is situated on the Nile proper,
just north of this labyrinth of
and hence commands access to
all the streams which feed the
great river. It is the capital of
the Shilluk country, and it was
annexed to Egypt nearly half a
century ago.
In 18(1!) Sir Samuel Baker, on
behalf of the Kedive, carried the*
Egyptian flag as far south* as
Uganda. It was Gordon however who first undertook to introduce a settled administration
into the Soudan, and for this
purpose he appointed Romolo
Gessi Pasha governor of the
Bahr-el Ghazai. His energy
cleared the province of the
hordes of slave dealers, and
created in the dem, or camp, of
Suleiman (also called Dem Zo-
beir,) a capital which soon developed into the largest and busiest
township on the upper Nile,
When Gessi died Luptou was appointed to succeed him as gover
nor, and he held this position
until the rising tide of Mahdism
flooded the province destroyed
his army and carried him into
captivity to Khartoum.
The expulsion of the Egyptians from the Bhar-ol-Ghazai
opened a possible route for the
French across tho African continent connecting their Congo
colony on the west with their
possessions on the Bed sea.
Their activity was no doubt
stimulated by the fact that England claimed that the Upper
Nile provinces were within her
sphere of influence, and obtained
the recognition of her claim in
African conventions negotiated
with Italy iu 1890 and 181)1. It
is a part of the British case at
the presenl moment that, these
treaties were duly notified to the
French government, and although they wore never express*
edly recognized by France, they
wore never disputed by her.
The first indication that the
French Intended to penetrate to
the upper Nile became apparent
in February 1894, when Ihey negotiated a treatynwith Germany
in regard to the Oaincroons and
lake Tehad. This treaty had
the effect of opening a way for
the eastern extension of the
French   Congo   colony.    Lord
Kimberley thon hit bpon tin

once occupy and administer the j
province. With this view he I
negotiated the unhappy Anglo-
Congolese treaty, which leased I
the Bhar-el-Ghazal and other-
territories on tho uppei Nile to
the Congo Free State.
He put too much in h.s treaty.
By a clause providing for a road
at the back of the German East
African colony connect ng British East Africa Nyassaland, he
offended Germany and thus a-
roused a formidable opposition
against the agreement.
France took full advantage of
Lord Kimberley's blunder, and
joined hands with Germany in
openly denouncing tlie Anglo-
Conglese treaty. Both powers
brought pressure to bear on king
Leojiold to withdraw from the
treaty, and in due course the
clauses against which they protested were, with the 'assent of
the British governmenl abandoned. Then Franco concluded
* treaty of her own with the

The inland revenue in P7.-1 was

in 187(1 was $100,000, and in
189" it rose to $5,000,000. The
salmon canning in 1870 amounted in value to $72,000, and in
1897 it was $4,500,000. Tlio imports in 1*72 were $1,800,000 and
in 1897 they were $7,130,000.
Th'e exports in 1872 were $1,

Salisbury Hns The United Support
of The English Press.
London, Oct, 25, All interesl
is centered today in the marquis
of Salisbury's addition in the
Fashoda correspondence contained in the publication of tho
British blue book on* thai subject.
Conservative newspapers express themselves as being highly pleased with this rejoinder to
the French yellow book on ihe
same subject. They declare
that it dispels the idea spread by
the di'spniteh of the French ambassador here, Baron de Courcel,
that the*premier was willing to
negotiate the whole question!
But the liberal and radical organs stillieons-iders the marquis
of Salisbury's attitude admits of
negotiations promising friendly
arrangements. The en tiro press,
however, scouts the idea of the
possession of Fashoda coining
within the sphere of discussion.
The French papers to day arc
more hopeful and believe a pacific solution of the dispute can be
found.
The English papers are full of
particulars -of naval gnews, but
the only fresh development is an
order received at Portsmouth to
prepare all the ships of Ihe lloet
and reserves for immediate mobilization. Eight additional warships there, in consequence,
commenced coaling this morning and working parties were
immediately placed on board the
other reserve war vessels iii
Portsmouth.
Although not connected with
the war preparations, much attention has boen attracted to the
request received by Clyde* shipbuilders from the adinirality for
tenders for four new first class
battleships, one first class cruiser aud 12 topedo boat destroyers.

RECEIVED
The Backcapper.
The San Francisco Call has
some pertinent remarks regarding a species of humanity which
(lour.i*shes in some of the mining
-districts, usually known as a
•*• backcapper",
•"The   worst   enemies   many
mining lections have are among
their owu residents.    They pretend to Mow all about its mines,
•their "history, product, probable
future and their value.    Then if
.some  enterprising owner   suc-
ei'.eds in .getting investors iuter-
vftstefl enough to come aud look j
.M,r. ibis claim those ''backcappers" j
get in their work.    Instead of |
bringing oul. the good points of!
the properties, they bring out;
rt.ll .the bad ones and give the.
property a 'blackeye' to any sale
in which thoy can have a linger.
If a .eyclone or an earthquake
irriimM be induced to select this
■class pf people for general destruction a   great   many  more
names *woti'id command capital
wiifcli which to operate.    Even a
i-aiuf) with plenty of good mines
(Mid prospects will have uphill
work to advance if it contains a
few .men of this kind.   Any deal
that they may be iu on is all
right, but those with which they
have nothing to do are sure to
get the rough side of their ton-
jrue.    Of course, a stranger will
be apt to listen to an old resident
who.tells him apparent facts concerning tho mines of his section,
uud it is foi' this reason that men
tut this kind can do much harm.
Many a mining sale has fallen
through because of hints or innuendoes from   such   people   as
iliis.    Men about to invest in
.mining   property are timid at
best aud any cunningly devised
•story adverse to the mine is apt
to iind a reaily listener.    No de-
,'tMit person wants to see capitalists   swindled   with   worthless
iClaiins, but  it is usually  those
Which have merit which are at-
packed    by    Ihe   blackmailers,
backcappers or hoodoos to be
found in almost every   mining
camp in thu mining regions of
.tlio west."
A Baso of Supplies.
Porl Steeli' has many advantages to  recommend it as au
.mil.titting  point, for those who
intend to prospeel or develop
the mini's of llie district.    Port
.Steele merchants are in a position to supply any order that can
ibe .tilled in Spokane, Victoria or
in any place.    Our merchants
carry all kinds of stock used in
wining, and no mining company
need go out of the district for
.any   supplies,   and   when   the
freight rates and duties are taken into consideration, at prices
oven  below the ligures of the
wast cities.     Port Steele district has tho mineral  resources,
and  our   merchants   have   the
supplies.
A Good Time Coming.
There is a buoyant feeling in
the Port Steele district al this
time. The great miniug deve
opinents which have taken
jWace during the past year, combined with the new discoveries
Oil Boulder creek, Wild Horse
and otlier portion of the district,
had every one to hopu that next

in the history of the Port Steele

[N' the niihiiig

tl e people who do the work of
raising the mineral wealth of the
mines be assured of a fair distribution of it among themselves.
The prevailing wage of a miner
in this province is §3.50 per day,
and when*.- his work is constant
this is a fair wage; a wage sufficient to render the miner comfortable in his home, and to give

tants were less than those of
Port Steele. Revelstoke is] the
only point of any importance
that is unincorporated, and they
would have been in city garb
long ago, had it not been for the
absolute assumption of tho
whole financial burden of protecting ..their town from the
dreadful erosion of the Columbia
river. This fact stared them in
the lace. The river year after
year eats the very heart out of
the town and they rightly felt
unequal to the hard task of rip-
rapping the bank" or dredging
another channel for the river.
They wisely turned from municip
al to j
aid.
It oannot be gainsaid but that
all these citk s have been borne
along by the abiding hand prosperity.   As should we!    Imitation sometimts is a virtue.
,,   I   Incorporation ogives a place
that necessary unity and solidar
ity, which insures   oneness
aim and power, among the discordant iiumberj-of the various
citizens.   The rights and wrongs
also, of the whole body of commune citizenship, meet a   just
tribunal,—the ballot   box—and
this saves us from  th
mare of a oue-mau-town.
Now, it is understood, that
provemeuts and adornments
about town.
Incorporation does not moan
the establish ment of a paid tire
brigade, Tliere is au efficient
volunteer brigade which would
answer then as now, Revelstoke
although not incorporated has
two strong tiro brigades.
Therefore, in calm view of
the whole circumstances, as we
s.'e them, we should have municipal incorporation,

It is to the interest of every man
who intends to make his home
in the I'orl. Steele district, aye!
in British Columbia, to see that
the wage of the worker is not
lowered. It is only those who
seok lo mine our minerals and
CVl-iy °«l ot the country the
wealth thai, tin se minerals produce, who can be said to really
profit by low wage*. With the
objects of these men the residents of the Fort Sleele district
hftye naturally no sympathy.
During the past year several
towns have sprung np in the

construction of the railway, they

And although in the opinion of
the Board of Trade, incorporation would then be not good,
yot, now, they might think so.
Moreover who aan say whether
they were competent, judges,
fair and impartial- or not? They
may not have been then In favor
of incorporation yet now they
might hold the view that It
would be of incomprehensible
benefit and advantage. We are
confident that when this important matter is looked into, by
our intelligent citizens, one and
all will say it is for the ultimate,
good,
Now the expenses of such au

Would there be an additional
tax to rate-payers and property
owners? No! there would not;
and even if there were a slight
increase in the taxes, would not

Halifax, Oct. 20.—Great activity prevails in naval circles at
this station. The cruisers Pallas and Talbot arrived from the
eastwfW'l ftDtl the ofers of the
ship expected that* after their
busy senson in the south they
Would at least have it respite of
a few days. They were, how<
ever disappointed and hartlly
had the vessels dropped anchor
when they were ordered to the
dockyards to take supplies. The
significance of tliis move is apparent, That there was something important on hand was
apparent from the alacrity with
which stores of all kinds were
being handled. Explosives and
other machines of war were
hustled on board with great dispatch and Admiral Fisher has
issued orders that the ships
should be ready to sail at daybreak. At first it was impossible (to obtain any definite information concerning the destination of the men-of-war, but finally it was learned that they had
been ordered to the French West
Indies. The admiral's secretary
was visited but that gentleman
was too busy to be seen, A
large staff of assistants are also
rushing through the necessary
orders,
The assistant secretary, however, was available, antl questioned. Whon asked as to the
truth of the repoit, he said the
vessels were'being prepared in
haste for a voyage to the West
Indies, to what part he would
not state, but would not deny
the, objective point was the
French possessions. In naval
circles the action of the admiral-
ity is regarded as surprising,
Tho vessels were to have taken
part in the naval and military
manoeuvres on Friday and Sat

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 18118.
GREAT BRITAIN AND FRANCE.
Britain's Naval Strength Is Unassailable By a Single Enemy.
In view of the present situation it may point a moral if attention is drawn to the strong
naval position of England iu
Europe, and to reinforcements
which could at short notice be
be added to the British lleet,
says the London paper. Mr.
Guyot has told us in the '-Siecie"
that tt war with England would
infallibly couduct to a now
Sedan, and facts justify him in
thi* startling prophesy.
In the channel tho forces of
England' and France stand—
.England, battleships 8, cruisers
4, torpedo-craft 1. Franco, battleships 11, cruisers 4, torpedo-
craft *l. lint the British channel
squadron loaves for Arosa Bay,
on the Spanish coast lo day.
The porl; guard squadron of
four battleships and one torpedo
gunboat, dispersed yesterday,
though hopes hud been expressed
that it would be strengthened.
England has, howover, in coin-
mission with reduced crews,
eleven battleships, four cruisers,
eight, torpodo gunboats, and
eiglileen destroyers, but these
ships are very much scattered,
one battleship or cruiser boing
stationed at each of the Import
ant ports.
At short notice the French
lleet could be reinforced by three
or four old coast defence ships
as many cruisers and sixty or
seventy torpedo boats. The
British Hoot could be further reinforced by three or four old
battleships, eight first cluss
cruisers, twenty second class,
ton third class, und some thirty
destroyers.
hi the Mediterranean tho
forces are: England, battleships
10, cruisers 11, torpedo-craft 111.
France, battleships li, cruisers
10, torpedo-craft fi.
While England has in reserve
two old ironclads aud a dozen
torpedo boats, and Finance three
battleships and about sixty torpedo boats. The French squadron could be quickly reinforced
by four more good but small
battleships and three or four
cruisers.
England has at the present
time, besides the ships enumerated above, a torpedo ram, a torpedo depot ship, and two cruisers in the Mediterranean. The
last two have just been relieved.
The battleships of the French
Mediterranean lleet are, though
few in number, all new and very
fast. "Le Yacht," the leading
French naval paper, says ot'
them, "They are of extraordinary offensive and defensive
strength. They would have no
reason to fear tin equal number
of adversaries belonging to a
foreign Heel."
Of the six, four have steamed
at seventeen knots for twenty-
four hours, and are faster than
any completed British battleships in European waters. They
have done this with their full
load. The other two are
slower.
Our greatest danger in the
Mediterranean is the way in
which our lleot is scattered. At
such a juncture our shtps-which
are none too numerous in that
sea—might well bo concentrated.
Perhaps such a concentration is
already taking place. ,
England hits ono now aiiil fast
battleship—the Canopus—nearly
ready, But for the unhappy
strike she and two of her sisters
would by now have been at
sua,
(liven time und a sullicii'iicy
of ollleers, England could mid in
her strength, besides the above
ships, three armored cruisers,
twenty old battleships (mostly
armed with iniizuleloatlers), ten
Hue cruisers, and twelve destroyers, She could also strengthen
her Heel, hy the pureliuse of ships
building for foreign powers in
England, and now near comple
tion.   Of these there are several
available.
Princess Pauline Harried.
Stuttgart, Oct. 2I>.—The wedding of Princess Pauline, only
child of the King of Wurtemburg, and the hereditary Prince
Frederic of Wied, took place today in the presence of a notable
assemblage of royalty. Queen
Wilhelmina, whose betrothal to
Prince William of Wied, brother
of the bridegroom of today, is
rumored in court circles, was a
conspicuous figure in the royal
assemblage, and among others
present were the Duke and Duchess of York, representing Queen
Victoria, the Duchess of Albany,
aunt of the bride, and the Crown
Prince und Crown Princess of
Roumanio.
The marriage is regarded as a
genuine love match. Both
Princess Pauline and Prince
Frederick are possessed of immense fortunes. Tho late Queen
of Wurtemburg, who died in
1882, left her daughter a large
heritage, and another fortune of
immense proportions will probably become hers upon the death
of her father, the thrifty "boni-
face-mounrch,"
Prince Frederick is heir to one
of the richest ami most ancient
"born" families of Northern
(jormany. His mother the
Princess of Wied, was a daughter
of the lute Prince Frederick of
Netherlands, and was possessed
of a fortune of $8,000,000,

SATDBUAY, KOVK.MIJIOR fi. 181)0,
Ofcttiwn Latter,
li'rom Our Own Cui'1'n.-.tioiii)
CMIiiwii, Oct, 2U.—Among ihej
many subjects ol current political controversy und criticism
there is perhaps none upon
which greater and much inisiin-
dei'sliitiding appeal's to exist
llinn thai of the attitude of the
Liberal parly upon Uie question
of tariff reform. The liberal
parly in Canada, as in
tho Old Counlry, has always
been thoroughly identified with
the inalienable principles of free
trade, nnd the local conditions
llinl havo compelled a modification thereof havo been submitted loitsn matter of necessity
and never of choice. When
therefore liberal speakers and
writers have declared their unshaken fidelity for free trade
they have declared for the principles und for their fealty there
to, both personally and as party I
representatives, and when they
have declared foi' u modification
of those principles in the field of
practical politics, they huve
simply recognised and submitted
to, tlie inexorable logic of the
then prevailing conditions.
A CONSISTENT POLICY.
government have been quoted in on the tariff, as the natural re-
support of this contention, the sources of the country develop,
position of the critics being ac-jand the "sound fiscal policy"
ClU'tttely summed up in a sen-' will adapt itself to tho improved
i tcuee, by Professor Goldwin I conditions and will carry the
j Smith in a published article a'country nearer and nearer to its
| few days ago when'he asserts ultimate goal of free trade.
j that "At the time of the election j This is the common sense po-
| we heiti'd a great deal about free sition for any government to'
trade and very little about uee-, take, this is and always has been
essttry caution." i thc position of the liberal party,
DOWN IN black AND WHITE, j this is the policy which has so
This is not nn accurate state-1 materially augumented tlie pros-
ment of the facts, as may be seen i<*" wiive of EWper^ and de-
by reference to the proceedings velopment this policy will as-
of the Liberal Convention in ?ist ln establishing that prosper-
Ottawa which formulated the!1* M the P™^'' md »ot
platform upon which that t>iec. j the exceptional condition of the
tion was fought. There is no pounfcl'y'
mention of free trade there, tlie | novel election charges,
fact being recognized that suchj The counter charges fyled by
an ideal condition was impossible j the liberal member-elect in East
under existing circumstances in j Northumberland against Dr. W.
Canada: but: what was declared A. Willoughby, the late coiiser-
for was: "the adoption of Uivative membei, and defeated
sound fiscal policy whicli, while candidate of the last election,
not doing injustice to any class contain several personal ullega-
would promote domestic and j tions against the Doctor as start-
foreign trade and hasten the re- j Hng and as serious as have over
turn of prosperity to our people;
and to that end, tho tariff should
be reduced to the needs of
honest, economical and efficient
government." Such was the
declaration of faith, reduced to
black aud white in June ISIIi),
upon which the election campaign in the spring of 1886 was
atn-
There is nothin;
in such n position; it i.s tli
Hide of all practical men. Upon
every live issue, with scarcely
an exception, the policy of any
man or any party, if it is worth
calling a policy at all, i.s tentative and progressive, moving as
the world moves, progressing as
conditions advance.
It is scarcely likely thai any
student, or even fairly close observer of events will question
this iu theory, but may fail lo
apply the principles practically.
For instance, It has been declared weekly and almost daily
during the past two years thai,
the liberal party has gone back
upon tho position if took prior
to the goneral election in 181)11,
whon it is assorted it declared
for free trade. The Premier nnd
other prominent members of the
inconsistent conducted, upon which the olec-
tion of June 1806 was fought,
and by whicli the policy of the
government since its accession
to power has been guided and
governed; suoh is tho declaration of faith of the liberal party
in October, 18!)H, and such will it
be to the end of the chapter,
IT MEETS ALL HEI'I.'IIJEMKNTS.
It meets all possible contingencies that any honest government should be called upon to
meet, As conditions improve
and the Industries of the country
recover from the ponicioiis
effects of artificial protection,
and as the country increases and
develops with the naturally ro-
sullant prosperity, more and
morn reductions may bo put inlo
effect, Tho "Needs of honost,
economical »ud offoctivo government" will be less dependant up-
been sworn to in tho election
trial. It is alleged for example
that in moro .than one part of
the constituency, on tho night
bofore the election, thoro was a
general round-up of doubtful
voters, and that liquor, which
had been previously druggod
under tho candidate's personal
supervision, was freoly distributed. Following the example of
those opposition speakers and
paiiors, who counted that "$10,-
000 bribery fund," fairy story in
tho Kingston trial, as proof positive of the frightful corruption
in the liberal camp, this sad
story from East Northumberland
must bo accepted on sight, and
those guilty of such terrible misdeeds driven with execrations
from public life. Uut in spite, of
lho precedent sot by the opposition there ure not a few liberals
who know and respect Dr. Willoughby as a man and a brother,
who slncoruly hope that thoro
muy bu just as much, and no
more, foundation for those personal charges than there was for
tho H*10|000 corruption fund
yarn.
THE UEST ON KKCOKD,
The well known Mercantile
agency of R. G. Dunn & Co.
open their last trade review with
the. following sentences, "It has
never beeu possible to make a
more satisfactory quarterly report of failures during the five
years wliich are covered by the
returns made exclusively by this
paper, than cau.be made for the
last quarter. While a very few
heavy failures swell the aggregate for the last quarter, those
in real estate,' brokerage, or
speculation alone counting for
more than 11 per cent of the aggregate, with as much more iu
operations not at all reflecting
the general state of business,
the aggregate was nevertheless
smaller than in any other month
covered by our returns for many
branches of business. In some
branches tho failures in September or August wore the smallest
in any month, and also in many
others, the failures for tho
quarter wero the smallest in any
quarter."

We would draw the attention
of the owners of quartz claims to
thu advertisement in our present
issue on page 8 referring to an
amalgamator for sale. It. is now
on a bar of the St. Mary's river,
where it was placed for working
the black sand, wliich however
could not be obtained in sufficient
quantity. It is in sections and
can be packed to any quartz
claim, and would enable the
owners to obtain immediate returns. Il crushes when the ore
is broken   to about four inch
pi s.   It is a recent patent and
saves nearly all the gold, with
oul loss of quicksilver. Capa
city 2 tons per day of H hours.

Fashoda the Key.
('(intimicd from Page 1.
By this time the I^rench had
inoffieially at least thrown off
every disguise. Tho object of
the Franco-Congolese treaty was
stated with cynical frankness at
the time by Mr. De Brazza, who
occupied the responsible position
of commissary general of the
French Congo. "This treaty",
he said to an interviewer on
February 12, 1895, "assure to
France access to the valley of
the Nile. It is our duty to pursue the road open to us, and to
disregard all obstacles which
may be placed in our way by
foreign powers. The consequence of this treaty will be our
possession of the Bahr-el-Gha-
sai province, This is the only
means we have of solving the
Egyptian question in accordance
with our interests."
/The government seems to have
been of the same opinion as Mr.
De Brazza. Mr, Delcasse, the
then colonial minister, who today is minister of foreign affairs,
gave iustructions "for tho formation of a column to protect
French interests on the upper
Ubanghi"—in other words to order the advance. The scheme
was well understood in France,
and the French chamber without asking any questions, voted
$400,000 for the expenses of the
expedition,
The latest contribution to the
French contention that Fashoda
is not Egyptian territory is a
letter alleged to hav« been written by Unbar Pasha at Cairo last
May to Emin Pasha, governor
of Gondakoro, in whicli he says
that the rising in the Soudan
compels the Kedive's govorment
to abandon those regions.
It is furthor shown by the
French that the acts of the khe-
dive's government were in harmony with its language. No attempt was made to establish a
regular system of communica*
tion between Egypt and the
upper Nile regions by thc way
of Zanzibar and Uganda, though
that would have been an easy
task. For five years, from IH8-I
to IHH0, Emin did not recoive a
single catrldge or any provisions.
