NEWPORT NEWS, Va.,Feb. 4.
Lieutenant llerge, comronndlng the
prise ship Appam, talked for the
first time last night of his cruise. He
j ridiculed the suggestion that hla
i raider was the new fruit trader
j Tonga, insisting that It was the
Moewe. He confirmed the accounts
! of his rapture of the seven English
I vessels, and declared he had nothing
! to say regarding his future plans,
j When asked how hla crew felt
about their enforced idleness, the
'lieutenant squared his shoulders
"Ah, my crew," he exclaimed.
"they are artiste. They take their
work aa It cornea. "
Cataaot aealcv Freely.
Apologising for any seeming brevity In
his remarks, the lieutenant said he spoke
as fully aa he dared, owing to his ex
"It would tier useless," he enW. "for me
to repest the stories of the capture of
ihe seven HrlflSh "crews 'hy-fnysolf and
my men. The accounts that I have seen
have leen correct In almost every de
tail. "As to the Identity of the raider. I
can only say this, and I never shnll aay
more 'my ship was his majesty'
"nut Is It thev original Moewe, or is It
another ship converted Into a war vessel
and given the name of the Moewe?' he
waa asked. .
The lieutenant appeared amused at the
question and lauphingly replied: "Again,
I aay It In Moewe."
And to many Interrogations as to when
the raider first was built, If It ever waa
a frelirhter. if plates from the old Mlnewe
were placed on It, and other questlona
that have mystified the world since the
prise crew brought the Appam Into port,
tha lieutenant 'only repeated, "it Is the
Moewe." ' i , .
Keep Them ta Himself.
If the lieutenant has any immediate
plans, he is keeping them well to himself.
He Insists that at present n is Just
waiting. Ua greeted with grateful smiles
the statement that various Englishmen
had complimented the prise crew on It
treatment of them. He said that he had
yet to hear of anyone being mistreated.'
Days and nights of constant vigilance
have told on the prle commander. In
stead of getting a rest, aa he hnd In
tended, when he came ashore tonight he
nervously paced ft hotel corridor, puffing
a cigar and blowing clouds of smoke into
the air until about 10 o'clock, and then
hurried back to the Appam. He wa
dressed in civilian clothes and only a
few persons recognised him.
