orwegian Steamships,

Remain at Anchor in Dela

Pallors who have learned that tho Nor
wegian steamships Fram and Sommor
atafl, now lying at this port, aro liable
to capiur? by British uarahlpa, refuse to
soil, compelling the vessels to jemain at

agent of the steamships nre anxious to

Tho Sommerstad cleared nearly two
weeks ngo and was followed several das
later b the Fram. Both hae cargoes

Four other Norwegian steamships, each
carrying similar corgoos have left here
during the past two months .Shipping
men have asserted t:jat thty believed the
cargoes weio never intended for the port
of clearance, but wore being deliveied at

were based upon the fact that the Karls

that this port never shipped suoh cargoes
