J IS QUESTION ASKED g c 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 ? attention." ? 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.

' V ' ' 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 if cards. 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 taken off. 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.
