£Schooner Deering Seized
§ by Pirates Off the North
«•ft î S
Carolina Coast, Is Belief
'Deering Captured by Oil Burning Boat Some
thing Like Chaser Taking Off Everything,
Handcuffing Crew," Says Message.
WASHINGTON, June 21.—A world-wide search for the missing crew
of the schooner Carroll A. Deering of Bath, Maine, which piled
on the North Carolina beach last January with all sails set but not a
living soul aboard, has been started by the state department through
The mystery is being investigat
ed by the department of justice
and department of commerce as is
also the unexplained disappear
ance of the American steel freight
er Hewitt out of Sabine Pass,
Texas, for Boston. This craft dis
appeared at about the same time
that the Deering came ashore.
The summary of the history of
the Deering case as- sent to con
suls by th.e state department dis
closes that when the Deering
passed Cape Lookout lightship,
North Carolina, on Jan. 19. while
bound from Rio De Janeiro for
Norfolk, a man other than the
master reported that the vessel
had lost both anchors and asked
to be reported to its owners.
Suspicion of Foul Play.
Five days later the vessel was
found on the beach in what the
state department describes as "in
such condition that there is every
suspicion of foul play having oc
The department's summary also
says that a short time after the
Deering passed the lightship, a
steamer, the mame of which has
not been ascertained, passed the
light vessel and was asked to stop
and take a message for forwarding
but no response was received to
the "numerous attempts on the
part of the master of the light
ship to attract the vessel's atten
The öepartment's summary then
says that on April 11 the follow
ing message was picked up in a
bottle near Cape Hatteras:
"Deering captured by oil burn
ing boat something like chaser tak
ing off everything, handcuffing
crew. Crew hiding all over the
ship. No chance to make escape.
Finder please notify headquarters
No Wreckage Found.
"The schooner carried a motor
lifeboat and a dory." the state de
partment's summary continues,
"but neither of them has been
picked up and no wreckage from
them has been found. Most of the
provisions, clothing and supplies
of the vessel had been removed."
Government agents investigat
ing the Hewitt and Deering cases
say they are baffled as thus far
tliev have not found a single clue
that might lead to a solution of
the mysteries. Equally as baf
fling. they say. are the cases of
the British steamer Alltyn and the
Russian bark Yute which disap

Share of Jobs, Demand
of Berlin Unemployed;

Berlin, June 21.— (By The Associ
ated Press.)—Thousands of unemploy
ed workmen Monday entered the labor
union assembly and demanded that all
workmen who had steady employment:
shoujd give up their jobs in order that
the idle workmen might be employed.
The president of the labor union as
sembly was badly beaten with black
jacks. The fight spread until 5.000
persons were embroiled, using fists,
chairs and sticks. Repeated alarms
brought several hundred police to thé
scene who cleared the building after
the uproar had continued for two hours.

when the steamer ascertained the
position given in the message an
hour later no trace of the vessel

Investigators here say that they do
not take seriously suggestions of

rates but they add that one guess

Unsolved Sea Mysteries.
They are inclined to the opinion
that the two cases will go down in
history with other unsolved mys
teries of the sea, the greatest of
which on record, they declare, is
that of the American bark Marie
Celeste which was found off the
Azores three months after she left
Europe in 1872 with all sails set
undamaged in calm weather but
with the crew missing. A boarding
party from the ship which sighted
the hark found the table set for
dinner with hot coffee in the pot
and everything aboard the ship in
the same condition it would have
been had the crew left only a few
minutes before. On a sewing ma
chine was a waist which the can
tain's wife had been making, while
toys used by the captain's son
were on the floor. In the fo'castle
was a table with playing cards dis
tributed around as though mem
bers of the crew had leisurely left
a game of cards.
Besides the captain, his wife
and son. there were 10 men in the
ship's crew. The vessel was taken
to port and again put in service
but about six years later she dis
appeared completely with her crew
and no word has ever come from
Pirates Afloat, Rumor.
The theory that pirates are
afloat in the North Atlantic has
found credence here. Belief in this
explanation of the fate of recent
ly missing ships has grown with
establishment of the fact that the
message in a bottle picked up two
months ago north of Cape Hat
teras. purporting to explain the
disappearance of the crew of the
five masted Bath schooner Car
roll A. Depring mystery ship of
Diamond Shoales, was written by
Henry Bates of Isleboro. Maine,
a member of the crew. Question
of its genuineness was settled by
handwriting experts who compared
it with letters written by Bates.
The unsigned note stated that the
schooner had been captured by an
oil burning craft, something like a
submarine chaser, the crew hand
cuffed and that everything was be
ing taken off.
