ANNArol.l", June 27. The Issue with
rhch a tourt of Inquiry is wrestling
Ute represents more than Hi guilt or
Innocence of a few Individual midship
men or the possible culpability or negll
rsire of offlclals of the academy.
The question Is whether the country
gill has r-aun to letaln Its cherished
te'lefs In the Naval Academy. May It
I he regarded as one of the nation's
ttrongest forces for character building,
for the Inculcation of those principles of
honor and Integrity which are recognized
a, ihe essential of a gentleman nnd as
ffordlng a splendid training for a
career of honorable and useful service
to the country?
Careful Investigation of all the
.'.m.H ,n what now appeals to be
t dismal situation leads Inevitably to
tfie conclusion that there Is no reason to
doubt the fundamental soundness and
r-holesomeness of the Naval Academy,
li is true that n festering eore Is now
le.ng exposed to the public with all Its
disagreeable details, and It Is true that
poison appears to have, been some
lnt disseminated through the system.
Hut once this eore Is lanced and a
drastic local remedy applied the wound
may be counted on to heal quickly, re
storing a sound and healthy condition.
(irosTth of nd Practice.
Such Is the situation at the Naval
Academy. Practices begun without real
evil Intent have culminated In the un
doubted theft and burglary of examina
tion papers, an offenca ahocklngljr re
pugnant to all the IdeaU -which It is
.ought to Instill Into the young men at
Feet none too eteady to begin with
have been treading a path the dangers
of which both the academy authori
ty and the midshipmen themselves
seem to have falloVl to appreciate until
it led some Individuals Into acta which
teuulre nothing less than the termination
of their association with tho naval. ser
vice. It is the nttempt to identify and
eliminate the tainted members and the
titural resistance to this drastic remedy
'hat has wrenched and distorted the
Naval Academy body for the time being.
From tho midshipmen themselves
c- nies the beet evidenco that this Is the
proper view of the situation. There
nr already manifestations of a deep
sealed conviction that tho honor of the
r ademy regiment demands not only
that It be purged of the presence or
those of guilty knowledge or act, but
nisi that for the future the midship
men exercise a greater vigilance to
i htlt the beginnings of practices which
fire likely to lead to nets reflecting
tport the whole body.
It Is not easy for those personally and
l-ulmately Involved In the proceedings
to sea beyond the present circumstances,
Mhlch are admittedly painful nnd dis
tressing. To tho midshipmen most
directly Involved the present proceed
Incv are a life and death struggle for

ttns's decisions, to sncrlflce the good of
Hi" Institution as a whole for tho sake
' a few Individuals, and to subvert
military discipline by political Influence
end the technicalities of tho law.
The Immediate situation, however, is
dllllcult one. For weeks It was not
known Just how- the examination papers
lure obtained and Just who was prl
rra ily responsible, hut events of tho
it fen days have Indicated that It will
l. it be long now before the whole truth

Sot'TIIAMrTON, I,. .Time 2?. The
stolen Jewels for the relurn of which
110,000 reward without questions was
offered on Friday were taken from Ihe
summer rottage of Mr. nml Mrs. Sher
wood Aldrlrh of New Tork. The mys
tery hitherto surrounding the ownership
of the missing gems was disclosed for
life first time to-day.
It wan asserted tti.it the detective
wotklng on the robbery know who did
the Job. lie In believed to be n pro
fessional burglar who has been here
for some time representing himself as
an agent. The Pinkertons have his
picture, and, according to the latest
Information, the maid at the Aldrlch
cottago hae Identified It as that of an
agent who called at the cottage a few
days before Ihe robbery.
.Mr. Aldrlrh, who Is president nf the
Hay Consolidated Copper Company of
2 tlroad slieet, was advised to say
nothing about his os by the Insurance
company nnd the l'lnkerton detectives
at work op the case. When the large le
ward was. advertised In Friday papers,
however, there was no end f specula
tion as to the ownership nf the Jewels.
Dreleer A- Co., who offered the reward,
would shed no light mi' the mystery and
the detective" also were silent.
.Mr. Aldrlch himself cleared up that
pan of the case to-da after It was
hinted publicly In Southampton that
the robbery was an "Inside Job." Mr.
Aldrlch gave out the details of the theft
and then reported It to the local police,
who have been as much at sea about
the theft as outsiders. In fact the whole
summer colony has become excited over
the Incident. The I'lnkertons hae been
most active, but nothing that they knew
leaked out until to-day.
The thief, according to Mr. Aldrlch,
took the Jewels a eeveht)-one pearl
necklace and a marquise diamond ring
from a top bureau drawer In Mrs.
Aldrlch's room some time between mid
night and 8 o'clock last Monday, The
Intruder must have climbed up one of

seer. As nearly ns Mr. Martin, Deputy
Commissioner of Correction Uurdette
U. Irfwls and Major l.awes can ascer
tain the powder the prisoners took was
a mixture of several drugs which they
thought was cocaine, morphine and
heroin. In the mixture were aconite,
nspltlu, Htropln und nltiuglcerlie
tablets, pulverised ami mixed. The re
sult, making the "white powder" so
familiar to drug users, was parsed
among the men In small bottles after
dinner at noon. The doctors will havn
to analyze It to be sure that It did not
contain other drugs. They say It Is
a marvel that eo terrible a concoction
did not kill all who took it.
Stolen From Storeroom.
From the stories of thoee of the
victims who could talk It Is believed
that a small number of prisoners, pos
sibly employed In the mess ball, stole
the drugs from the old nloreroom In tho
mess hall building. The hospital was
moved from there to the Industrial
building two weeks ago. and the drugs
had not been transferred. This wa
known, and It Is thought the craving
for the narcotics was too strong. The
outer door was forced and entrance
gained to the Inner room through a
The theft and the fact that so many
of the 433 Inmates had "sniffed" the
supposed cocaine did not become known
to the prison authorities until nearly
2 o'clock, when a baeball game was
about to commence between the reforma
tory team and a team nf young men
from Staten Island. The prisoners
