THE ZANZIBAR TROUBLE

i ■ ♦ (PSB PRRSS ASSOCIATION.) Zanzibar, January 16 The insurgent forces attacked and destroyed a German mission station near Dares Salam, on the Lake Nyassa road. The object of the attack was to recapture over 100 freed slaves, which was successfully accomplished by the rebels.
