SMUGGLERS DISTURBED. SURPRISE AND SCUTTLE. A NEW GUINEA INCIDENT. Captain Haug, of the German steamer Siar, states ' while his vessel was off British NewGuinea on her way to Brisbane, he saw a steamer of about 3000 tons lying south-east of Ketava Island, and to the northwards of the steamer were nve jarge native sailing vessels. He shaped his course for the steamer to ask for the exact Greenwich time, as his chronometers were very much out, but the steamer immediately wheeled round and went east wards at full speed. The sailing vessels also dropped ' their sails and turned back. The Siar wen1; after the steamer, but could not catch her. Captain Haug could not see any name on the vessel, and he came to the conclusion that the steamer was engaged in smuggl ing operations and must have mistaken- the Siar for the Com monwealth Government steamer Merrie England. When the Siar was a considerable distance south wards the steamer wheeled round and seemed to go back to wards Ketava.
