LETTERS FROJI BISHOP COURMOHT
To Eev. Father McDermott, of the Holy
Ghost College, Pittsburg.
CATHOLIC MISSIONS AIDING NATIVES.
In a conversation which a reporter of
The Dispatch had yesterday with the
Kev. Father McDermott, of the Holy Ghost
College, the latter furnished some very in
teresting details respecting the recent
troubles in Zanzibar, on the Eastern coast
of Africa. He prefaced his remarks by
stating that the Order of the Holy Ghost is
entrusted with extensive missions on the
entire weslcoast,embracingan extent of 5,000
miles along the coast and 1,700 miles into
the interior, including Senegambia, Liberia,
Senegal, Congo, the Guinea coast; reaching
an the south to the Orange, river, and on
the northeast as far as the famous Tim
buctoo anl the borders oi the Sahara
Desert.
On the east the Fathers ot the Holy Ghost
have had charge for the past 30 years of the
entire district of the Zangnebar. They were
the first pioneers of these vast reeions, and
paved the way for the missionaries of Car
dinal Lavigerie, who are now stationed
along the Great Lakes of Tanganika and
Victoria If yanza. The establishments in the
island of Zanzibar is the starting point and
rendezvous of all the creat modern explorers
of the Dark Continent. It is here that
Stanley and Brazza and a host of others re
ceived a cordial hospitality, valuable assist
ance and abundant information before start
ing on their long expeditions to the interior.
In a word, their missions comprise 5 bish
oprics, 4 apostolic prefectures, and include
over 200 missionaries.
After giving these details the Reverend
Father showed some letters which had been
just received from Bishop de Courmont, of
the Holy Ghost Order at Zanzibar, and
translated the following extracts, which
throw considerable light upon U e origin
and extent of the recent troubles. It will be
seen, from these authentic sources, to which
European power must be ascribed the re
sponsibility of exciting among the native
tribes a hostility which is liable to
"WEAKEST ALL EUEOPEAIT INFLUENCE
on the coast, and to retard the progress of
religion and civilization. It must be re
membered, by the way, that Zanzibar is a
small island within sight of the coast just
large enough to contain a town with a popu
lation ot about 50,000 or 60,000, embracing
natives, Arabs, Europeans and coolies (or
immigrants Jrom East India). Bagamoyo
is a bip village on the coast just opposite
Zanzibar. It is here that the Fathers have
their principal establishment, where over
400 children are instructed and trained in
all the industrial arts.
I Extract rrom the letter ofSeptemberM. 1S88.)
On the 16th of August the agents of the Ger
man Company of Colonization received the
order to take possession of the custom houses
along the coast. Tne discontent of the popula
tion excited against them on every side a strons
opposition, which culminated almost on all
sides in a state of actual warfare.
At Bagamoyo two German vessels of war
have been obliged to land some companies of
sailors and thus force the natives into accept
ing ana recognizing tne new oraer oi wings,
which, for the moment, annearcd to be settled.
until after a brief calm the revolt broke out
again.
This time it was at Tonca. where two German
sailors were severely wounded, and the popu
lace, exasperated uy tne uomuarmns ot tne
village, obstinately refused to receive the em
ployes of the customs. The latter were there
fore obliged to retire in spite of the presence
of the German Admiral and six vessels of war.
A similar resistance was offered at Pangani,
where three Germans were cantured and re
tained in prison for two days without food.
At Ba;rauiO)o, there reigns a great feverish
excitement among the natives who are anxlons
to shake off the German yoke. They speak of
nothing but of the bombarding on the one
hand, and of open fighting on the other. But
it is impossible for me to arrive at the exact
trutn in tne miast oi so many contradictory ru
mors. However, I have been just now in
formed by the French Consul tbat the Baron
Gravemeath, German Governor of Bagamoyo,
has been attacked by the natives. But the
German admiral leaving Zanzibar, and landing
1113 sauors ana some somiers oi tne sultan's
army, drove back the natives, who lost, it is
said, over 1U0 killed and wounded. The Ger
mans lost none, but six soldiers of the Sultan
were u onnded.
For the moment we have, apparently, noth
ing to fear at the Mission, for the natives in
whose midst we have lived and labored so long,
are entirely in sympathy with us. But the fu
ture preoccupies us extremely, for if this affair
ot the custom houses is sustained by force of
arms, and it massacres continue to bo perpe
trated at other points, it will no doubt exas
perate the entire population to such a degree
that all the whites along the coast wiU be
seriously exposed.
A BARON'S UGLY THBEAT.
Extract from letter of October 4, 18S3.J
There are at the present moment from 4,000
to 5,000 persons that have taken refuge within
the limits of our mission at Bagamoyo. The
chiefs themselves have advised the natives to
shelter with us themselves, their families and
their goods, t The Baron Gravcnreuth has de
clared that if be lays hands on the chiefs he
will spare none but those for whom Father
Bauer will intercede. In the coun
try there is no longer any business whatsoever.
Already the famine is ravaging Bagamoyo, and
we are obliged to distribute aid to those who
have taken refuge with us.
If the Germans insist upon maintaining tho
measures taken with regard to the custom
houses, it is to be feared that the great cara
vans of ivory from the interior Trill forever
turn away from Zanzibar and take another
route in the direction of the Portugese colo
nies of Mozambique. With their ivory these
caravans will likewise transport their slaves.
It will not be, indeed, as we would hope, a final
extinction of the degrading slave trade, but a
mere changing of the market
(Extract from thelelterW November!!.!
"We are now at the commencement of No
vember, ana things are still in the same state
as they were a month ago. The Germans, al
though expelled from all the stations in which
they had placed their collectors and agents
(some of whom have been massacred), have
taken possession of Bagamoyo and Dari-Salam.
Each of these posts is guarded by a man-of-war,
without the protection of which the members
of tbc German company and their handful of
native soldiers would be at once attacked and
massacred.
As for Bagamoyo, the entire town, formerly
so populous, is now almost abandoned by its
own former inhabitants. The Indians, with
the entire population of Arabs, have left for
the island city of Zanzibar, carrying with them
their entire stock of goods and furniture. Just
now, however, there are at the mission house
about 1,500 individuals, men, women and chil
dren from every tribe, to whom Father Bauer
distributes dally rations.
The explorer. Hans Mayer, who had cone to
Kiliina Is djaro by Pangani, has been able to re
turn to Zanzibar only with the greatest diffi
culty. He was pillaged, ill-treated and ran
somed for the sum of 12.OJ0 rupees. The Aus
trian explorer. Count Teleki, who left here
more than a year ago, has come back from the
direction of Usamburu. The Jake, which Is
marked on certain maps, does not exist: bnt he
discovered another lake which Is large enough
to rennlre 30 days.
He ascended the steep sides of Monnt Kenia
to a height of 15,000 feet. The summit of this
beautiful mountain is covered with perpetual
snow, while from its sides numberless strfmg
pour into the river Tana, flowing through the
vaiiev ueiow, wit-ro Lucre uweus a mnu and
hospitable population.
Extract from letter of November 3.
The Germans have jnstbeguntho bombard
ment of "Wlnde, a seaport town north of Bag
amoyo. Although none ot the inhabitants
were killed, one of the chiefs was taken pris
oner and condemned to be shot. Before hit
death he received tbe sacrament of baptism
from tbe bands of Father Bauer, who had tried,
in vain, to intercede for his life, with the stern
invaders.
EXTENSIVE CHABITY DEMANDED.
Extract from letter or November a.3
I am just after returning from tbe
town of Bagamoyo. where I found
onr fa tilers embarrassed with tlio bur
den of nourishing from 4,000 to 5,000
persons who have taken refuge at the mission.
This charity of our Door mlssloners of Bag
amoyo has so affected tbe hearts of the people
ot every denomination here in Zanzibar, that
even in the Anglican Church the Protestant
ministers spoke publicly of our situation, and
made a collection to assist us in our expenses.
The Arch Beacon has just handed to Father
ACKer tne sum oi vi rupees as tne ko"1"'
receipts in one church.
TIh, Protestant Bishop, Smythles, has just re
turned from attending the Synod of Lambeth,
in England.
On his way to a neighboring village, situated
on the coast, he was attacked by an armed
force and was allowed to return in safety only
after ho had consented to the payment of a
ransom of 5,000 rupees. Tbe responsibility for
these proceedines has been placed upon tne
Sultan, Said-Kbalifa, by tbe representative of
the English Government,
tExtract from the letter of JJecembcr 4, 1SS3.J
.jTheblockadehas just been declared andbe
cun on December 2. Tbe English and German
Admirals and Consuls, who are ""?"
were at first disinclined to take such a serious
step, which they considered Injuri0". the
European cause. One would think, therefore
tbat their only motive has been a movementol
bitter irritation against the native chiefs, pro
voked by the maneuvers of tho Arab Chiettam,
Bushiri, who conducted the previous insurrec
tion, and contributed the most to enliven the
spirit and onposition to the German occupation.
Provided with the guns and ammunition wnicn
he had taken from the explorer, Hans Mayer,
and with some cannon which he had seized at
the German station of Pangani, Bushiri mad
an immediate descent upon the station of Bag
amoyo. Tbe Germans, notified of his move
ments,were watching tbe entire coast, and as
soon as the first shot was fired from the native
ranks, it was answered by a heavy flro of artil
lery from the men-of-war, and the sailors land
ed shortly upon the shore, dispersing the na
tive troops of Bushiri, after killing a good
number of his men, while they themselves,
though warmly received, sustained no serious
damage. Next day they made some further
demonstrations along the coasVdriving the in
habitants before them into the interior. Here
they met with a slight resistance from some of
the armed natives, who lay in ambusb. One of
tbe Germans was killed, bnt whether it was an
officer or a private nobody knows.
LATER NETVS COEEESPONDENCE.
In spite of this bombardment of the town
from tbe German ships, and of tbe demonstra
tion by land which tbe Germans were making
farther up along the coast, Bushiri reached
Bagamoyo on December 4. Tho town was Im
mediately occupied by his armed followers,
and the Germans shut themselves in their
fortified house.
Next day, at an early hour, La sent for
Father Bauer, to whom he addressed the fol
lowing words: "It is only agaiust tha Germans
that we have any spite; the English, the French
especially, are not our enemies; you and the
Padrls (missloners), if you wish to come to
Pangani, you will be welcome: but if you wish
to remain here you have nothing to fear from
us. Bnt we do not wish the Germans to re
main upon our coast. Tell them, however, on
my pari, tbat I have not come to make war
upon them just now. l shall attack them
only upon their refusal to quit Baga
moyo. Let them go. to Zanzibar, and
there attend to tne administration of their
Custom House. But here and in the ports
along tho coast we shall allow none but Arab
or Indian agents." At the very moment
Bushiri was speaking, tbe Germans, from
their fortified bouse, tired several shells upon
the town, to which Bushiri at once replied by
some rounds from his rifles. During the day
his followers plundered several caravans of
ivory, which had succeeded in reaching the
coast. They seized the ivory, as well as the
merchandise which tbe Indians ot Zanzibar
had brought to trade with the Arabs for the
precious material. Next day there was a simi
lar discharge of shells upon the town followed
by the same flring of small arms and an equal
amount of destructive pillage. On the 7th,
after a warmer and more constant attack from
the ships, Bushiri was obliged to retreat upon
Klngani, where he is at present stationed,
watching every movement of the Germans, and
sending out armed bands
TO PLUNDER THE DEFENSELESS
points along the coast Bushiri Is an Arab
of mixed blood, small and heavy, wearing upon
his countenance an expression of great energy
joined to an air of quiet affability. When re
ceiving Father Baner, he was armed with a re
volver and a handsome rifle his toilet was very
exact, and his costume pretty rich. Like all
the Mussulman chiefs, he Is everywhere accom
panied by a large suite .of women Father
Bauer counted not less than SO in the ante
chamber of the reception room. The number
of refugees at the mission has now reached
7.000. lean explain the reason of this rapid in
crease, by tbe fact that Bnshiri's troop3 are
dally ransacking the surrounding country
making slaves of those whom they find and
killing those who resist All this Is preparing
for us a terrible famine, and I ask myself, like
the apostles, "whence shall we buy bread tbat
these may eat." In addition to the prospect of
a famine, there is, besides, tbe equally distress
ing anticipation of the Test. The dead bodies
lie around in tbe streets, and in tbe houses de
molished by the German shells, without an at
tempt being made to bury them.
In the meantime the forces of Bushiri are not
to be despised. He has, I am told, over 700
gnns of different patterns, bnt all of good
quality, with ammunition for at least two
years. In the town ol Bagamoyo alone, he has
plundered and seized $10,000 worth ot ivory and
linen goods.
