Freighter Abandoned
After Rescue Fails
Transfer Crew Of Chief Maquilla
To Japanese Steamer In
Mid-Pacific
BOUND FOR SHANGHAI'
(By Associated Press)
SEATTLE, Dec. 1.-A wireless to
David R. Girwood, Seattle manager
of the Canadian-American Ship-
ping Co., this morning reported
the company's disabled freighter,E
Chief Maquilla, had been abandon-
ed in mid-Pacific and that her
crew had been transferred to thef
Japanese steamer, Yogen Maru..
The message, which came from
the Yogen Maru, said that the ship
was left to her fate as water con-
tinued to rise in her holds and be--1
cause of a lowering of the baro-
meter. She carried eight officers
and about 32 Chinese as a crew.
Another wireless intercepted by
the Mackay Radio Telegraph Co.t
at Portland from the Japanese
ship indicated that a strong south-
West gale was pouring heavy seas,
over the disabled vessel, making 1
pumping operations impossible. The
Portland message also' indicated
that the Chief Maquilla was be-
ing towed by the Yogen Maru.
The Chief Maquilla, bound from
British Columbia ports with a
cargo of grain and, lumber for
Shanghai, sent out distress calls
early Thursday morning. The Yo-
gen Maru. arrived alongside Friday.
Company officials believe that
rough seas caused her cargo to
shift.
A forewarning of distress, voiced
in a letter written by the Chief
Maquilla's second engineer, Ernest
McKeen, to his brother, Robert in
St. Catherines, Ont., was made
public Friday. The letter said the
Chief Maquilla was loaded with
lumber ten feet above deck. "God
help the deck load if we get some
big seas," it said.

Bandits Get Million
In Air Mail Robbery
(By Associated Press)
ST. LOUIS, Dec. 1-About $1,000,-
000 in bank checks intended for!
collection in Chicago and New
York was obtained by two men who
Friday afternoon held up a con-
tract postal driver and his wife on
their way to deliver five pouches
of mail to Lambert-St. Louis field.
Postal authorities were attempting
today to determine the value of
other mail stolen, including regist-
ered letters and parcels.
The amount of checks was fixed
by Olin M. Atterbury, deputy gov-
ernor of the St. Louis Federal Re-
serve bank, who said his institution
had not made a shipment Friday,
but downtown banks had. The
banks would be put to considerable
trouble, he added, but would lose
nothing through the theft.
Two men in an automobile, neat-
ly attired dand wearing handker-
chiefs for masks, crowded Harry C..
Graham, 35, contract drive, to the
curb and forced him to stop.
Pouches intended for Illinois cities.
were transferred. The robbers fled. 1
