WASHINGTON. April 15. The big
American naval collier Cyclops, ear
ning fifty-seven passengers fifteen
officers and 221 men in her cerw, hag
been overdue at an Atlantic port
since March 13. The navy depart
ment announced yesterday that she
was last reported at a West Indies
island March 4 and that extreme
snxlety is entertained as to her
safety. The vessel was bringing a
enrso of manganese from Brazil.
The fact that the collier had been
musing nearly a month became
known here April 11. The naval
censor refused the Associated Press
lo publish facts on tho ground that
the ship had not been given up for
lost, and that to publish the fact
thai she was overdue might expose
her to enemy attack while she might
be disabled on the high seas. The of
ficial announcement by the navy
department does not give the ship
up for lost but merely saya "the
nivy department feels extremely
nloiis as to her safety."
The statement follows:
"The V. 8. S. Cyclops, navy col

calls sent to search for her along her
probable route are with no success.
'No well-founded reason can be
given to explain the Cyclops being
overdue, as no communication with
her has been had sce leaving the
West India port. The weather In
the 'area In which the vesel must
have passed has not btwn bad and
could Jiardly have given the
Cyclops trouble. While a raider or
submarine could be responsible for
her Iohb, there have been no reports
that would indicate the presence of
either In the locality In which the
Cyclops was.
"It was known that one of the
two engines of Cyclops was Injured
and that she was proceeding at a
reduced spoed with otie engine com
pounded. This fact would have no
effect on her ability to communicate
by radio, for even If her mam en
gines were totally disabled, the ship
would still be capable of using her

continues, but the navy department
