New, Charles

New, Charles a British missionary to Africa who suffered martyrdom very recently, was a member of the United Methodist Free Churches of England. He was laboring among the Chagga, whose chief, Mandara, conceived ill-feelings against New, and used him so ill that he died in consequence of the severe treatment he experienced, in the summer of 1875. The British government is at this writing in negotiation with the Chagga to secure indemnity for their brutal conduct towards one of its subjects. Mr. New deserves to be remembered not only for his Christian missionary labors, but also for his service to African exploration.
