Consuls abroad havo been notified to
look out for any clue to tho vessels
and tho Secret Servico operatives
have been put at work.
Ono theory is that bootleggers
havo taken the ships to aid In
running liquor Into the South At
lantic States. This arises from tho
fact that Senator Simmons of North
Carolina, recently complained to the
Senate that there wero not enough
coast guard cutters to patrol tne
coast He said that liquor running
was being Indulged In freely in de
fiance of tho law.
Senator Hale of Maine is under

an extended investigation, stretching
over tho past month or so, by agents
for the Department of Justice and tho

Shortly after tho eplHode three
