Capt. Henry Murphy of the Lackawanna steamer GRAND TRAVERSE caused the arrest of three members of the crew for attempting to desert the vessel at Green Bay. They had signed articles at Buffalo for the round trip, but on reaching that port attempted to leave the ship. Capt. Murphy went before a justice and swore out a warrant for their arrest. They were taken in custody and taken before the justice, who ordered them placed in the county jail until the GRAND TRAVERSE was ready to sail, when they were placed on board and forced to work back to Buffalo.
