NEW ROUTE INTO AFRICA.

Prom tho JCcw Yolk bun.
A company has been organized In
Germany under the name of tho Cen
tral African Lakes Company to create
a regular transport borvlco from tho
coast to Lako Nyassa and thence to
Lake Tanganyika, employing 8,000 na
tive carriers. Tho company will carry
goods for the Germuu government, for
the stations of Cjngo Free Stute In tho
southeastern part of us territory and
for the numerous missionary and trad
ing posts that aro distributed over tho
Tho advantage of this routo Is tho
largo amount of water transportation
it affords. Vessels from lluropo muy
unload their cargoes at C'hlnde In tho
Zambesi deltu and river boats will
carry, the freight up the Zambesi and
its Shire tributary to tho rapids In
that water, A portage of sixty miles
will thou ho required. At the head of
tho rapids the trelght will bo trans
ferred to steamboats liuuuil for thu
head of Lako Nyassa, 300 miles away.
Another portage of 1!0Q miles will then
bo required to the foot of Lako Tan
ganyika, whence German steamboats
Mill bo able to deliver tho freight at
ports along tlio thousand miles of Tan
The land portage along tho old e'liia
van route between Zunzlbar and Tan
ganyika Is S00 miles In length, Tho
new l'oute will Involve only 2C0 miles
of land portage, and will thus affect
a largo saving of tlmo and expense.
Tho development of their gi;eat terri
tory In Kast Africa will doubtless de
mand from the Germans the building
of railroad straight from the Zunssl
bar coast to Tanganyika. The routo
which they now propose to utilize Is
to be opened becauso tho railroad which
the British have completed from tho
Indian oceun to Victoria Nyaiuti'
