Tho American ship Fort George,
Morso master, arrived In port this
forenoon, 30 days from Oyster Harbor
with 33S0 tons of coal for tho Inter
Up to within ten days ago, all was
quiet aboard. Tho breeze was light the
whole way nnd tho men had not over
much to do. Among their number was
a big raw lwncd negro, seven feet four
Inches In his stocking feet and n per
fect Hercules In strength. This man
was even quieter than his fellows but
he soon mado things lively enough.
It was Just ten days ago that tho Fort
George entered the climate of tho trop
ics, and the cold winds wcro charged
to tho warmer trades. As If by magi,
the negro, George Robert, seemed to be
suddenly transformed Into another
person when tho warmer weather was
At 4 o'clock In the morning, ho Jump

to tho wheel house and, attacking the
man nt tho wheel, all but Mulshed htm.
The mnto heard tho nolso und, with th.)
five remaining men of tho watch, rusn
ed to tho wheclhousc. Thcro they saw
the wild-eyed negro standing nt the
wheel waiting for the men to attack
him. The man ho had Just attacked,
lay limp nnd useless In a corner.
The mnto and his men made n ruth
nnd seized the big negro but It was nil
they could do to overpower him, He
swung his arms around like clubs and
some of the seamen felt the force of his
Roberts was locked up and, after a
little whllo seemed perfectly calm und
self possessed. He expressed sorrow
for what be had done, promised thnt he
would not repent tho offense nnd plead
ed to ho let out of his prison.
It was thought thnt the fellow had
come to his sensen again nnd thnt he
ttould glvo no more trouble, so th
pilson door wns opeucd nnd Robot ts
given his freedom. .
The first thing tho negro did wns to
run to tho forecastle. In n shorter
time than It takes to tell, ho had tho
knobs off several of tho doors nnd had
thrown them overboard. Ho next at
tacked tho doors and windows find
threw somo of these over tho sideThen
he took buckets ropes, mattresses and
anything else ho could find.
This was too tame sport so ho pull
ed out two belaying pins from their
places nnd bejn chasing somo of the
sailors upand down tho deck. The
men who wero standing by say It wan
funny to seo tho chase, but this It will
bo remembered. Is told nftcr tho troif
bio Is nil over. There was probably
nothing funny to be seen at tho time.
Cnptaln Morse wns on tho poop deck
at tho time. Ho signaled to tho mute
and tho crew and Just as Roberts got
beneath him, he Jumped over nnd land
ed In a heap nn tho fellow's head and
shoulders. The crew rushed In nnd
pinioning Roberts' urms nnd feet, soon
had him in irons. Tho struggles of
the negro nro' said to havo been soni'i
thing unbelievable. Ho showed himself
to ho n perfect tower of strength
As soon as Roberts wns safe In Irons
ho was taken to a place near tho after
hatch and fastened by means of n chain
passing through a ring to another nt
tho Bldo of the ship. Slnco that tlmo ho
has not been very wild. As a mattor of
fact, ho can't very well. Ho Is given
his meals nnd sleeps right on tho spot
whero ho Is chained. This afternoon
he will bo brought nshoro and turned
oyor to tho authorities to ho transfor
red to tho Insane asylum.
Whllo Roberto was being chained he
made a Jump at tho carpenter and gavo
him a vicious hlto In the arm. It re
quired a heavy blow on tho Jaw to make
htm let go..
Roberts was shipped In San Fran
cisco and, until ten days ago, ho wns
one of tho quietest and best behnved
men on tho vesse). Ho was very active
nt his work nnd never gavo his oftlcns
any trouble. .
Whllo nil tho trouble was going on
