£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 American consuls. 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 curred." 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 tion." 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 of Deering." 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 peared last fall off the North Carolina coast. The Albyn sailed from Norfolk last October and never was hoard from agaiw» while the Yute was seen off Cape" Hàtteras and sent a Pullman Co. Loses Open Shop Fight Chicago. June 21—The Pullman company lost its open shop fight be fore the I'nited States labor hoard Tuesday when the board upheld thi* contention of union leaders tha> the company had not obeyed "the letter and spirit" of the transportation act when it conferred with its employes in mass meetings. The board threw out the company's petition for a cut in the wages of its shop employes and instructed 't to go back and meet the "duly elected rep resentatives" of the employes. The shop crafts and clerks ia the Pullman works arc involved in ihe case. The board's decision delays .'Wiy ac tion on a reduction in their wages for several weeks. Under the transporta tion act the company must meet the union leaders, and in the event they fail to reach a decision, file a petition before the board and ask a new bear ing. Share of Jobs, Demand of Berlin Unemployed; 5,000 Engage in Riot 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.

Re ports to the government are that the weather was perfectly calm. Investigators here say that they do not take seriously suggestions of bolshevik raiders of deep sea pi rates but they add that one guess is as good as another. 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 her. 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.

Norway Dry, but Booze Arrests Total 58,345 Christiana, Norway, .Tune 21.— Norway is supposed to be a "dry" country, but no fewer than 23,796 persons were arrested last year for being drunk, and 34.550 other arrests were made for sundry misdemeanors traceable to the effects of intoxicants, it is shown in official statistics. While these figures indicate a slight falling off as compared with the previous year, they are far in excess of those for 1918.
