NEW FRENCH AFRICA EXPEDITION
Scrtpps News Association!
Paris, Sept. 7 It was officially an
nounced today that Capt. Lenfaut. the
French explorer, is about to leave on an
other expedition to West Africa in order
to discover, if possihle, a navigable
waterway connecting Lake Chad with the
coast of the Atlantic. In his former ex
pedition of 1903-4 Capt. Lenfaut ascer
tained that through waterway existed
along the Niger, the Benue, the Mayo
Kebbi. the Logone, and the Shark, but
he was unable to follow it from the be
ginning to end by boat as theMayo-Kebbi
was found to be obstructed by rapids.
His discovery however enabled the French
government to abandon the difficult and
costly Congo-Ubangi-Fortda Possel route
for conveying supplies to the troops on
lower Shari. The result of the expidition
is awaited with a great deal of interest.
