Remarkable Phenomenon at Sea.


New York, Feb. 15.— Captain Niemann of the steamer Prhinz Maurits[,] which arrived from Paramaribe [sic – Paramaribo] today, says he witnessed a remarkable phenomenon February 13 in lat. 36 30 and long. 74. The vessel ran into a vapor, ascending from the sea and forming a fog. "The water seemed to be boiling," said the captain. "The clouds changed rapidly and in the distance we could see a great many waterspouts. I have no explanation for it."

Note: Although no craft is seen, boiling water (UFO underwater) and waterspouts (UFO in the air above the water) are common ingredients in UFO cases. (CF)
