CENTRAL AFBICA'S E0AD
Scotchman's Gift, It Has .Done Much
. , to Develop the Region.
Jamas Btavanaon, a wealthy 6cotch
naitsgava fXS.000 to build road be
t vah north ond 6f tko Jfyaaaa and
tha south ond f Lak Tanganyika In
Central Africa, about t6' years mto. Ha
was convinced that, nothing-; would help
mora to dtvelop Africa than good' hlg-h
wayiL v.., . -p.-. ?
It tod 4w yar "to build tho road
nd U was t wU built Its lanstb U
tU Mfii. Apart from Its great, useful-
iu hu meo there mvs always
aid that it has been powerful civil-Ulna-
It haa helped to ' aeeaatom the - na
tives of that densely peopled region to
work for the whites, and to use calico
and other European articles. The work
of construction was th first instance
on a large scale of the utilisation of
native labor In Central Africa. Many
trained laborers now live along the road
and are engaged In transport service
between the two great lakes.
This highway is. known as the Steven
son road. Mr. Chrapkovskl. an official
tn the German service, who recently
travelled over the road haa written an
interesting account of it. .
He says that though nothing haa
ben Jone t maintain the road built
IS mn a .n I, I m ..in with
exception i of ' the oad between Victoria :
Nyansa and Tanganyika, tha best high
way In Central Africa. As nothing has
been done to maintain ' the road it is
now covered with grass, but travellers
say this is really an advantage aa the
vegetation has helped to keep the' road
from washing, and it is also,- better
for the feet of the carriers who dislike
to walk on those stretches where there
is no grass, for It is aa hard as stone
and hurts their feet. .
The usefulness of he road la proved
by- the fact that porters carrying 60
pounds on their backs make an average
of 20 miles a day, while the usual Jour
ney Is -only IS miles. The -road passes
entirely through British territory, and
the government-' has erected a station
every . 29 jnlls -, where - caravans may
spend the night. mv ... o -
inert is provision ai eaca stauoa w
put all the freight under cover, com
fortable brick and concrete houses af
ford excellent conditions; for a good
night's rest and there are cook houses
where the . meals of the caravans are
prepared. One of the neighboring chiefs
is held responsible for the cleanliness
and good order of eaah station. He re
ceives a monthly salary of a few shil
lings from the government and a few
yards of calico from each caravan pass
ing over the route. . w j ?
The road was Intended and is well
adapted for the use of wagons, but un
fortunately the South African oxen that
were brought -into the 'country did not
thrive there and the experiment of us
ing them .was given up. As long as
oxen were used large wagona loaded
with 1,009 pounds of freight and drawn
by II oxen made an average of 14 miles
a. day from' one lake to the other.: ' "
When the oxen proved a failure, small
carts hauled by the natives and carrying
about 1.000 pounds of f reight were 'in
troduced, but It was finally "decided that
transport on tho backs of men who re
ceive only from five to seven shillings
a month was cheaper, and now vehicles
are seldom seen on the road. . .
