From —, the Company concluded about SOO treaties with the potentates of the Niger territories in Sokoto and Gando, from which they derive their present rights of possession. A French commercial company tried to compete with the British on the Niger, but received so little support from France that they were compelled to abandon their project, the British company having already in a Niger flotilla of 25 steamers and a considerable capital.

In course of time two points with reference to possessory rights came to the front: 1. Germany endeavoured to touch the Tshad Lake shore from Cameroon across the Bennue, and attained her object by an Agreement with England in and and with France in The Convention hetiveen the English Niger Conqmny and Germany of 15th November , secured the East of the Tshad Lake territory as far as Dar Fur to the latter, wliich security has naturally a theoretical value only.
In the same convention of the 4th February, , France also suc- ceeded in reaching the Tshad Lake ; Germany, however, also reached the Sanga Valley and consequently the Congo. To all appearances, France has gained the greatest advantage, having not only right of access to the Tshad Lake along the Shari, but also to Mayo Kebbi 43 and thereby ''par Benoiie", as it is called, to the Niger, on which navigation is free.
It is however doubtful whether Turkey will be able to reach the Tshad Lake across the Eastern Sahara.
