ARE PIRATES AFLOAT t.
IN NORTH ATLANTIC? J
IS QUESTION ASKED g
Washington, June 21.?A woil d- J
wide search for the missing crew of j,
the schooner Carroll A. Deering, of u
Bath, Me., which piled on the Noi th t
Carolina beach last January' with ill
sails set, but not a living soul aboa -d,
has been started by the state depa t- *
ment through American consuls.
The mystery is being investiga ed t
by the department of justice and lie v
department of commerce as is a 30 0
the unexplained disappearance of be s
American steel Freighter Hewi ;t, t
out of Sabine Pass, Tex., for Bosti n. v
This craft disappeared about he v
same time the Deering came ash< e. v
The summary of the history of j le ^
Deering case as sent to consuls i >y 0
the state department discloses t at 0
when the Deering passed Cape Lockout
lightship, North Carolina, on
January 29, while bound from Rio de s
Janeiro for Nqjfolk, a man other c
than the master reported that the 8
vessel had lost both anchors and *
asked it to be reported to its owners. r
Two days later the vessel was c
found on the beach in what the state
department describes as "in such con- ?
dition that there is every suspicion, of .
foul play having occurrel." L 1
The department's summary a?o \
says that a short time after the
Deering passed the lightship, a steamer,
the name of which has not been
ascertained, passed the light vesfcel .
and was asked to stop and take a
message for forwarding, but no re-' i
sponse was received to the "numerous
attempts on the part of the master of c
the lightship to attract the vessel's ?
The department's summary then t
says that on April 11, the following a
message was picked up in a bottle s
/-I u TY _ 11
near t/ape naiieras. s
"Deering captured by oil burning t
boat something like chaser, taking r
off everything, handcuffing crew. f
Crew hiding all over ship. No chance }
to make escape. Finder please no- v
tify headquarters of Deering." t
"The schooner carried a motor life- e
boat and a dory," the state depart- j
ment's summary continues, "but t
neither of them has been picked up y
and no wreckage from them has ^
been found. Most of the provisions c
clothing and supplies of the vessel \
had been removed."
Government agents investigating j
the Hewitt and Deering cases said c
they are baffled and that thus far t
they have not found a single clue
that might lead to a solution of the c
mysteries. Equally as baffling, they
say, are the 'cases of the British t
steamer Albyn and the Russian bark c
Yute, which disappeared last fall, off t
the North Carolina coast. ,
The Albyn sailed from Norfolk (
last October and never was heard
from again, while the Yute when off
Cape Hatteras sent a radio message
asking for aid, but when steamers
reached the position giv?n in -4jhe message
an hour later no trace or tne c
vessel was found and, it is said, she c
has never 'been heard from since, i
Reports to the government are that r
the weather was perfectly calm. , e
After the Hewitt disappeared and c
the Deering came ashore without a c
crew, a British insurance company t
suggested that the two vessels prob- j
ably had collided and that the Deer- r
ing's crew went down with the
Hewitt. An investigation by coast c
eruard officers, however, convinced f
them that the Deering was not dam- c
aged sufficiently to warrant a cqn- i
elusion that she had been in a col- r
lision with any other craft. e
Investigators here said that tl\ey
do not take seriously suggestions of \
bolshevik raiders or de?p sea pirates, i
but they add that one guess is .as i
good as another. They are inclined j

' ' Mr
o the opinion that the two cases
rill go down in history with other
nsolved mysteries of the sea the
reatest of which on record, they delare,
is that of the American bark
larie Celeste, which was found off
he Azores three months after she
eft Europe in 872, with all sails set,
ndamaged, in calm weather, but with
he crew missing.
A boarding party from the ship
vhich sighted the bark found the
able set for dinner with hot coffee
n the pot and everything aboard
he ship in the same condition it
vould have .been had the crew left
nly a few minutes before. On a
ewing machine was a waist which
he captain's wife had been making,
vhile toys used by the captain's son
vere on the floor. In the forecastle
vas a table with playing cards disributed
around as though members
if the crew had leisurely left a game
Besides the captainj his wife and
on, there were ten men in the ship's
rew. The vessel was towed to port
ind again put in service, but about
;ix years later she disappeared com>letely
with her crew and no word has
iver come from her.
Another mystery of the sea pointed
to is that of the American fighter
iVasp, which, after defeating a Britsh
frigate in the war of 1812, sailed
iway from the scene of battle never
o be heard from again.
Story of Pirates Believed.
, ortland, Me., June 21.sThe theory
hat pirates are afloat in, the North
Atlantic has found credence here,
lelief in this explanation of the fate
>f the recently missing ships has
rrown with establishment of the fact
hat the message in a bottle picked up
wo months ago north of Cape Hateras,
purporting to explain the disippearance
of the five-masted Bath
ichooner Carroll A. Deering, mystery
hip of Diamond Shoals, was written
>y Henry Bates, of Islesboro, Me., a
nember of the crew. Question of its
genuineness was settled today by
landwriting experts, who compared it
vith letters written by Bates. The
insigned note stated that the schoontr
had been captured by an oil-bumng
craft, something like a sub-chaser,
hat the members of the crew were
tiding all over the ship with no
Hance to escape, were being hand uffed,
and that everything was beng
Through the effort of Mrs. Willis
?. Wormell, of this city, wife of the
aptain of the Deering, and friends,
he investigation was started by the
tate department, the department of
ommerce, the coast guard and oth>r
government agencies to establish
he fate of the missing crew, which
onsisted of 2 "men besides the capain.
