Great Collier, Last Seen Three
Months Ago, Disappears '
WABlirVGTOV, May 21-(Associated
Press) What became of the miss
ing Collier Cvelopn!
Is she a prize in some German port
the victim of treachery I Does she
lie disabled in some unfrequented cove
of the tropical seas driven there and
helpless by ii.-.-i'lent f
Or has she itin.lv her last voyage ami
wtyh more than :ion souls turned up
in Fort of Missing Men to Join seven
teen other ships of tfe Amnrieau
Navy which have disappeared just as
tnysteriously since 17S1I
Sailing. from Barbados in the West
Indies March I with a complement of
195 men, the yreat Hi.OO-o-tun naval
collier has not since been been sighted
or reported. Rv order of the navy de
partment all available tinvy craft in
southern waters have theen making a
dragnet seared for the vessel, but daily
the conviction among officials grows
stronger that the great modern mys
tery of the scs will remain unsolved.
But the scorch 'for the ship still is
maintained with Yuabsted intensity.
Cruisers ami destroyers have retraced
her route. Kvery island among the
scores that dot that ortion of the
sea is being carefully scrutinized for
any clue. Hut the unremitting anxiety
of the searchers has failed to disclose
any trace of a ship apparently plucked
in a Iny from the busy lanes of the
South American trade routes.
To account for this disappearance of
the Cyclops there have been suggested
many theories nil possible, none eu
Was she blown into fragments by
a heavv chnrge of explosives placed
In her hold !,fore-he left port! This
explanation is hardly acceptable be
cause wreckage would have covered
the sen for mnnv miles nround.
' Wns she torpedoed and sunk "with
out a trace" by a German submarine
that had crossed the Atlantic to prey
on comparatively unprotected ship
ping! Thnt theory is discounted, be
cause in such a case, at least a few
S. O. 8. calls could have been sent out
before the Cyclops went under. More
over, floating wrechng certaiuly
would have been found.
Was she attacked ami captured by
a marauding etiemv raider thnt hal
slipped into the -Atlantic after elud
ing the British fleets f Kven if at
tacked, it is claimed the collier's
wireless wwtild have put her in com
munication with other naval vessels or
Did enemy ngents, carefully "plant
ed" among the ship's personnel, seize
control of the Cyclops in the night
and dismantle the radio to make wire
less rtommnnication with the outside
w orld impossible f This explanation
had but little support because it is
elnimed that a small enemy force hard
ly could be expected to reduce to pris
oners a force of nearly three hundred
men, many of then -naval reservists.
Where Mow, If Captured
Again, if taken hy an enemy force
abroad where is the Cyclops now?
Kvery bay, every inlet cnpnble of ad
mitting a vessel of her draft, has been
carefully searched. She had not enough
coal in her bunkers to make the trans
Atlantic trip to some German port.
Moreover, one, engine wns out of com
mission, cutting down her speed to ten
knots an hour. Even if additional coal
had been procured, she hardly could
have slipped past the British patrols
into some German port. Her limping
gait would have made her an easy
victim for the fast Allied destroyers
Did the crew succumb to the effects
of a poisonous gas given off by lu-r
cargo of manganese t Hardly, it is
thought, because all shipping men use,
to cargoes of that character take pre
caution to eliminate the danger.
Did the big vessel of 19,000 tons .lis
placement, constructed with a view to
withstanding the heaviest weather,
founder in a severe tropical storm. This
theory sounds unreasonable to inanv
who believed the ship capable of ml
nig safely out of any storm she might
encounter, yet in view of all the known
cirmimetaneeH the explanation is nc
cepte.l by most uaval officials as the
most probable nccouut for the .lis
Heavy Deck Load
The Cyclop although of deep draft
and broitil beam carried a remarkable
hiyh and heavy superstructure. Fight

hull, ami there was other heavy frame

a maximum of efficiency in loading or

forty five degrees, the Cyclops, burden

haps unable to swing back into equilib
riiim, crashed over to one side and
quickly settled. The heavy cargo of
manganese might have shifted and hin
dered 'the vusHol from righting after a
Moreover, vessels which returned to
Atlantic ports about the time the Cy
clops was due, reported that unusually
stuntiy weather had been encountered
in southern waters. Caught in the
trough of a heavy sea, the Cyclops
might hav capsized and gone 'down,'
ipiickly dragging down beneath her
hull all deck equipment which other
wise might iiuve flouted on the surface
as en indication of her fate.
The theory that the Cyclops sudden
ly went down in a storm is about the
only theory thnt adequately would ex
plain her failure to wireless in ease of
danger. The fact that no radio calls
ever came from the Vessel is one phase
that characterizes the disappearance of
the ship as one of the most mysterious
ii Icrn sea annals.

Just Passed By Congress, Says
Thnt travelers from the mainland to

of congress which has been recently

"Congress has passed the passport
law, requiring passengers to Hawaii
from the mninlan.l to have passports.
This is the final - ntightening out of

ment is for the protection of the gov

travel from point to point within the

sumsbly the act will not be enforced
to the embarrassment of citizens who

Project To Build

yesterday by well known citizens who
had been asked to attend a conference
to discuss the project.
Originally it had been planned to pur

but those behind the project here have
been informed that much of the equip

difficulties stand in the way of moving
it to Honolulu. In view of this, I he

once as a swimming pool and a pool to
be used in connection with a "shoot

way ore among the attractions planned
for the park.
It was announced by D .1. Hut Lett,
who is promoting the plan, that assur

Harder Than Draft
It is s peculiar situntion thnt the su
gar industry is more seriously affected
by the mobilization of the guard than
it would hnve been by the calling of
the draft first. I'nd'er the selective
draft regulations plantation laborers
have been given a deferred classifica
tion and will not be called among the
first. In the mnhiliratinn of the gu-rd
there is no such classification. The
igricultural worker is taken as are oth
er workers who are not so essential.
At the labor bureau of tha Planters'
Association yesterday afternoon it was
admitted thnt the sugar industry whs,
o seriously feel the effect of the tak
ing away of so many workers. The
bureau i waiting information ss tn
how many have been tnken from the
different plantations and what are the
actual and immediate needs nf ench.
There it wns snid that on this island
the would probably be little difficulty
in fil'in" up labor ranks as there was
a supply to draw from that would not
i" to another island because of their
wh to k within reach of Honolulu.
They would rather be a hanger on nt an
Oahu plantation than regularly employ
ed elsewhere but thev n-e willing to
work regularly here What course
would be pursued to meet the demands
if the other islands' plantations could
ot be learned, indeed there seemed to
'e no definite nlnns.
81 'nation Anticipated
At the office of Castle 4 Cooke, aiT s
f'r Kwa and Waialna. it was said
'hat the call had been expected
nnd that although between l.-.fl and L'OO
had been taken from those two planta
tions alone arrangements for filling the
vacancies quickly hnd probnbly been
made bv the nlantation managers.
Chances for Boys
Meiander Baldwin is planning to
make use of school boy labor, that is
of bovs over fifteen years of u'i' who
lire suited for the work. There it was
said that arrangements had been made
or using boys from the industn-tl home
oi Kahuku and that for the Hawaiian
' uirar Company at Makaweli a hundred
l:t-"e and strone school boys would be
cured and had already been arranged
f..r. .tohn fluild, in 'telling of this,
t'ointed to the fact that on the main
1- n. 1 school hoys and college bovs were
being and are to he so employed and
that the f'niversitv of California had
. '"tended the length of the summer vi
cation so as to make available a sunnlv
such workers for a lonrjer period than
might otherwise be. The bovs will be
given work for which their strength is
suited and will be pnid accordingly o
thnt during a time when thev would
,.th erwise have been idle thev will be
earning their own livelihood and scores
noon scores of them will be nhle to
start a "nest egg"' through invest
ments in thrift stamps.
