STANLEY AND EMIN BEY.

A DESPATCH PROM STANLEY,

[Br Electric Telegraph.— Copyright.] fPEH Press Association.]

LONDON, November 5,

A despatch has been received from Mr H. M. Stanley at Zanzibar. He says that on reaching Lake Albert Nyanza for the third time, after his first visit to his rear guard, he heard Emin Pasha and Jephson had been prisoners since August 18, and unless they received assistance before the end of December any help would be useless. It appears troops of the equatorial provinco revolted, and the Mahdists shortly after invaded the district. After the first battle the Natives were seized with panic and joined the invaders, who, suffering a reverse in the attack on Dufela, had sent to Khartoum for assistance. No explanation is given in the letter as to how Emin Bey was rescued. Mr Stanley merely says he stayed at Wadelai for a month collecting fugitives, and left Albert Nyanza on May 8, homeward bound via Victoria Nyanza. No hostile Natives had been met since leaving Kabboreja. He expects to reach the coast in January. _____
