opponents have not natives of the lund who objected to being but the slave raiding Arab who from immemorial time had made the lives of those same natives a Less than a year has passed since Sir Johnstons capture of the most atrocious of South African slave the dreaded For a great many until Sir caught Mlozi had been the terror of all the regions north and east of Lake Mlozi had his fleet of

Sahara to Lake These places are fortified slave to which the taken in the raids are and from which they are conducted to the Mozambique or the Ued or to 3Iorocco and Mlozi and his subordinate chiefs fought If Mlozi had negotiated with Johnston when the attack took laid down his and given proper security for abandonment of his villainous his life would have been But after a sham designed to catch the British Commissioner the slaver renewed the Johnstons baud had to cut their way through the stronghold inch by Some six hundred wretched slaves were found in the They had been captured in the far

them much They were in a strange land and they had no worldly The British Com missioner provided them with the means of earning their own and of and happy With Sir the destruc tion of the slave
