effect, so that in future all cases of this
nature will be dealt with in the same
manner, the delinquent being sentenced

The "Flying Dutchman" Caught.
San Francisco, March ill.-News
has just been received here that Cupt.
0. 0. Hansen, known to every sealer
and reveiiua cutter that visits Behritig
Sea as the "Flying Dutchman," has
been caught at Inst. He is a most
during poacher aud many a time has
he raided the rookeries when not a
revenue cutter or man-of-war would
leave her anchorage. The officers of
ihe Bebring Sea patrol fleet tell many
a story of the "Flying Dutchman"
skirting the coast before a full fledged
hurricane. Now the schooner has been
confiscated and the crew ure all in a
Russian prison. Tlie Siberian coast
loomed up and a Russian man-of-war
was sighted in the distance. She gave
chase and Hansen aud his men, knowing what wus iu store for them if they
were caught, chipped 011 ull sail und
attempted to get away. The wind
tore the sails to ribbons and the warship was soon along side.
The Russian commander would listen
to no explanations, uud would accept
no excuses. He towed the schooner lo
Vladivostook where she was confiscated uud the men were thrown into
prison. Capt. Hansen, through Capt.
Johnson, who was iu command of the
vessel, has engaged counsel and the
case is likely to become an international one. Hansen asserts that he was
driven upon the const and near to the
Russian rookeries by stress of weather
while the Russians assert he is a well
known poacher and  nol to be believed.
