United States Dlstrfct Attorney
Lcroj Ross of Brooklyn acting on
Information contained In an anony
mous letter summoned Capt. George
Lunde aad Chief Officer Gus Atkin
son of tho steamship Polar Bear, now
lying In Erie Basin, to appear at his
office and explain w-hy certain items
of tho cargo including a motor boat,
a quantity of skins ond a consign
ment of drugs were not placed oii
the manifest. The Polar Bear arrived
from Hamburg last week.
The two officers told a story of a
six months' voyage that sounds like
old time deep eca fiction a tale of
mutiny, murder, gunflghts on board
and controversies In port. Capt.
Lunde claims the entry1 of the items
In dispute was deliberately omitted
from the manifest by a member of
the crew for the purpose of getting
the officers in trouble.
The Polar Bear, a 2,600 ton Shipping
Board vessel, left Norfolk early in
September, bound for St Thomas,
Buenos Ayres, Hamburg and New
York. Nearly all tho forty-four mem
bers of the crew were Spaniards.,
Trouble started on the first day out
Capt Lunde and Chief Officer
Atkinson are officers of the old school.
They did not temporize with trouble
makers In the crow. Disaffection
spread and when St Thomas was
reached shore leave was denied.
Late one night while the ship was
lying at anchor, about twenty mem
bers of the crew armed with knives,
clubs and monkey wrenches, made a
concerted attack on the quarters of
Capts. Lunde and Atkinson. The
officers were armed with revolvers
and stood off the attack.
Two members of the engine room
crew, William Doberty and William
Donobue, attempted to go to the as
sistance of the captain and chief
officer. Doherty was stabbed to
death and Dqpohue was severely In
jured, losing an eye.
Jesus Gonzales and Jose Fonscca,
firemen, Jumped overboard and swam
ashore. They were , captured later
by United States marines, tried,
found guilty of murder and hanged.
At Buenos Ayres most of the old
crew deserted. Lunde signed a new
crew, but the old men had spread
bad reports about the ship In resorts
for sailors ashore and trouble con
tinued on tho voyago from Buenos
Ayres to Hamburg. Either the cap
tain or the chief officer stood watch
on the bridgo with drawn revolver
continually. At Hamburg some of
the sailors made charges against the
captain and chief officer with the
Spanish Consul and the voyage was
Betweer. Hamburg and Now York
there wan not so much trouble be
cause only a few members of the old
