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. The German war vessel Mowe, one of the blockading fleet, bombarded the town, which was almost completely destroyed, without injuring the rebels, who retreated to the interior after obtaining possession of the slaves and thus outreached the vessel's shells.
