Draooh, Donmark, Nor. 28. A horrible
murder took place on the 10th inst., on a
Russian schooner in the BaJtlo sea, near tha
fetahd of 'Bornholm. This schooner was

'hands. Among theao was one Jan Umb, a
worthless fellow, who was caught robbing
his shipmates, as well as stealing ropes
from th'e ship. The officers and the orew
began tooslng and chastising htm.
On the -18th of Norombor, when oil Born
holm, Jan Uub jumpod overboard. A ropo
was thrown to him and ho was hauled on
board, aferr which bis life was mado ono of
absolute) misery. The night following was
vory dark. Jan Umb took advantage of the
darkncua to murder the captain and live of
his shipmate, whoin ho afterward threw
overboard. Not satisfied with this, bo next
half murdered tho mate, who was asleep in
The immediate causo of tho matter was
this: Jan Umb was at the wheel. He did
not steer to tho captain's satisfaction and
the captain hit him with a ropo, Jan Umb
thon got in a rage, took a piooo of wood
and knocked the captain down, aud then the
helmsman who had reliovd him. Next ho
went to tho lookout and killed him. After
this he called the other watch (three men)
from tho forocostlo and killed them one after
the othor. Some of thorn wero not quite
dead when he threw them overboard. Ho
saw a boy, a rolfttive of the master, crying
and bogging for bis life, but the brute threw
him ovorboard also. Then he gathered all
the valuables ho could get hold of, taking
the captain's watch and wedding ring before
throwing him overboard. He then wont
down in the cabin, az in hand, to kill the
mate and get his money. The mate heard
him, but thought it was tha master" The
murderer "wont to the bed and struck at 'the
mate. Instead of bitting him on tha hoad
lie out .him in tho legs. A struggle ensued
and the mate succeeded in scaring him
away with an Imaginary revolver.
The murderer then wont on deck, lashod a
knife to a long pole and tried to stab the
mate with this through the cabin window.
But the mate, blooding, managed to keep
out of his roach. Tiio brute, soeing be could
not reach him, began to pour petroleum
down the cabin. He next dipped a rope in
petroleum, applied a match to it and then
dropped it down tho cabin, so as to set flro
to tho oil ho had poured down and burn tho
snip anu mate witn it.

Then h"6 went aft 'to
but meanwhile the
mate had climbed through the cabin win
dow, and he came back to the murderer
while the lattor was busy nailing the door
and knocked him down with u pieco of wood,
pulled him to the mizzeu rigging, lashed
him theroto, put a rope around his neck aud
tied his hands, and then bo foil senseless to
the deck- through loss of blood, where he
was" found by the mate of a passing Danish
steamer, who had observed the ship without
any man visible on deck to manage her.
This was about 8 o'clock .n tho morning.
The murderer had been about half the night
engaged in his murderous work. Several
ships were now in sight. At 7:U0 a Swedish
steamer had passed close under the schooner's
stern, but, thinking all was right, steered
away again. Thon the Danish steamer took
charge of the ship. The steamer's mate and
four of tho hands went on board, aud, see
ing what had boon done, tied the murderer
in tho mlzzen rigging and set one man to
watch him. After dressing tho mate's
wounds they towed the schooner to Copen
hagen, when the police took charge and
carried tho mate to a hospital The mur
derer was examined as to his sanity, but he
was found to bo quite normal He has now
confessed his crime, and will bo delivered to
tho Russian authorities.
When the murderer was takon on board
the sohoouer to show the police bow he had
committed tho crime he wept like a ohild.
The captain has a young wife and a little
child in Russia to lament their lost The
mate is recovering from his wounds, and
the schooner will soon continue its voyage
