Henry A..Sackett, of San Francisco; ar
rived,11 .on .boardf thil steamer Costa Rica
at Alnswo'rth .Dafck list night In chains
'and was" immediately removed by Patrol
man Baty'and Riley to the City Jail. He
la Violently Insa'ne. From Jetters found
in his pocket he 'is believed Jy the police
to be' an artist - on -his way to visit
friends in Portland. He gave hir age at
the central station as 45 years.
The officers of the Costa Bica have a
peculiar story to tell concerning' their
passenger. When, he boarded the ship at
San Francisco he appeared to tie la hte
right mind, and ; for a few hours after
the steamer left the wharf he mlnglcd-j
with the other passengers, making ac
quaintances. H was of a jovial .disposi
tion and was soon" In the midst of a circle
of men and women who listened, with in
terest to his jokes and atorles.
About the middle of the first day but
Sackett left the group of acquaintances
suddenly and Tetlred to his stateroom.
He returned to the deck half an hour
later with his hat filled with gold coins.
His, actions were very peculiar He
stepped -up io the group, started -to say
something, then stopped suddenly and
walked to the rail. Before anyone could1
prevent him, he sprang overboard, with
hc hat in hishand.
The Costa Rica was stopped and a boat
lowered. Sacket was rescued and re
turned to the steamer, where he fought
to get away from "the men "Vhq, had
paved hbX;, The boat's crew stated that
when they, reached him Tie was swimming
away from' the steamer and resisted the
efforts of the stallors to rescue jhi'm.
Sacket was very violent after the ship
had been regained and,, the officers w6re
compelled to place him in chains. He
continued to rave until the ship reached
the dock in this city, refusing food. As
roon as the steamer madeport.the police
were notified and took Sackett Into cus
tody. The San Francisco authorities
have been asked to identify the mas. In
his pockets were several letters, among
them a card of introduction signed
"Charlie and which read "this will In
troduce Exactly" Sackett. the great art
ist, tbmy dear Aunt CatTle."
The officers of the sfeamer are deter
mined in their statements that Sackett
had his hat half full of gold coins when
ho sprang overboard. The money was
lost When Sackett's 'stateroom wasvviB-
Ited . after his rescue It was discovered
that hlstgrip was open and the contents
scattered about the door. It is believed
that the tit of insanity came upon him
suddenly and that he immediately went.
to the grip and took out the money, which
he placed In his hat before returning to
the deck. The man had been very agree
able before leaving the deck, and bfficers
and pas&ngers. can . assign no reason- for
his- sudden- aberation of reason.-. He"was
apparently in excellent health when he
boarded the- streamer.
WEARY OF WAR ON CHURCH
Scparaton of Church and State of
PARIS. May ?0. The debate In the
Chamber of Deputies on the bill providing
for the separation of -church and state is
proceeding dally, with less -attention than
was bestowed on. the less Important de
bate over the budget This Indifference of
Parliament and ' the public Is. exciting
M. Pcllatan. who was Minister of Ma
rine In the late Combes Cabinet, has
written a weekly review saying that the
separation Of church -and state Involved
tlie most momentous change France has
sfen since the abolitloti-of the monarchy.
He pointed out that the orators discuss
only the details of the-measure, without a
voice yet being raised to consider the
revolution In general conditions involved.
The cause of the absence " of - passionate
speeches is due to the general conviction'
that the passage ot the- bill is a .foregone
conclusion. .The four main articles of the bill have
already been passed,, leaving only two
brtef . ones remaining, ..The articles al
ready, adopted establish the "principle,
complete thescDaration and provide for
civil corporations? to carry on the religious
establishments. The main struggle has
been over having the enormous wealth
of the churches In art objects, paintings
and tapestry pass to the succeeding civil
corporations instead, of going to the state.
The Socialists urged the .state's right- to
take over these objects, but government
Influence secured changes in , article 5, so
that church goods will $be retained by
their civil successors, thus'obviathig their
transference to the .state. .The. remain
ing articles of the bill vieal with pollce.re

NEV YORK, May 20. The World will

Three diamonds, cut " from the world
famous" Excelsior stone, .and. valued in the
aggregate at J90.000. have disappeared
from the shop, of Tiffany & Company, in
this city. The company believes that they
were stolen by somebody In Its. employ.
In all. teniamonds were cut from the
Excelsior; last Van. shortly after Its .pur
chase by Tiffany 'from' an English syndi
cate. The Btone was found at Jaagersfon
teln. South Afrtca. in '1833, and in the
rough weighed 97i carats. It was the
largest diamond' that has ever been cut
up, and "the total value of the ten stones
taken from It was $300,000. Five of tho
diamonds were sold to New York custora
.ers'last Christmas. Of the remaining five

"The 'robbery was committed In the work
shop, on the fifth floor . of the Tiffany
bullding 'In Union Square, on the- afternoon-
of Thursday, May 4. -
Loosely ' wrapped in paper, the $90,000
worth of- jewels had been laid by the,
workman on 'the shelf, of the window la
the wire eager which separates the office
from the workshop. The theory Is .that
sone one In the shop who knew the value
ot the contents .of the folded package took
It. before -the articles lying on the . shelf
with It had been .put in the safe. The
man whose duty it was to lock up the
valuables did not miss the diamonds. It,,
was -when the workman asked for the dla
mopds. next.MB'ornlng to finish his job ofV
setting thenr'that. the theft was discovered.
, The State Commission of the Lewis and
Clark- Commission met last nighty In
called session to consider the reply made
to it by the Lewis and Clark Corporation,
in. regard, to the contention of the Com
mission that the- corporation follows the
Commission in authority and Is responsi
ble to It for its actions, on the theory
that the creature Of the state is not moro,
powerful than the state or the representa
tives of the state.
The meeting was a long one and was
fQr the greater part satisfactory both as
to; results and cause, and It Is now evi
dent that the fancied breach between tho
two organizations is not so wide as was
at first thought, nor so Important.
The re.ply ot'the corporation to the de
mands of the Commission was embodied
in: a letter written by Secretary Henry
E. Reed and sent to the meeting of the'
Commission yesterday afternoon. It cov
ered the questions asked by the Commis
sion and answered them in the main to
the satisfaction of the Commission
though at the same time without detract
Ing to any great extent from the stand
of the corporation in its entirety. In fact,
it would appear that the cqrporation has;
been working In harmony" with the Com
mission from the first arid that whatever
trouble has arisen is due in .large part
to. the circumstance of the Commission's
having waived certain' rights it may have
had In the "first place by not-paying any
attention tcf them and allo.wlng the cor
porationto. handle the matters covered
from the first. -
Wirt Minor was present at the meeting
of the Commission 'as its attorney and in
discussing 'the reply of the corporation
stated that in his- opinion there was no
"reason why there "should be any serious
'"The reply," he said, "Is at once an
answer and a refusal;,to answer." ,
Mr. Minor also stated -that In hls j opin
ion the Commission was -not bound-by the
opinion "of the Attorney-Genera krBHt'. Iff
there was "a difference betweaSg3)$ . tw-S4
bodies a board -of arbitrattbrf. ; eetrii be-,
called to -settle "the trouble. t?-'eH nC?
appear V6 -the-speaker, however.; thatt
there was -need for any contention, for i
It was apparent that the corporation
wished to do-' what -It was- required to do
by law, tfiough.'it "was apparent that? it
would not do any more than that. The
members of the corporation were sensible
men and were willing to abide by the law.
At the-end of. about two hours of discus
sion It was decided to refer the reply of
the corporation to a committee of six,
the said committee to consist to as great
an extent as possible of the committee
of six provided for fay law. This commit
tee will meet this afternoon at 4:30
o'c!ock;.when the document submitted will
be gone over and a report made ready to

Henry E. Reed Sets Torth the View
" of the Corporation.
Henry E.( Reed, on behalf of the Cen
.tennial Cdrporatlon, has addressed the',
following letter to the State Cdmmission:
Portland. May 19. 1903. Lewis and Clark
Centennial Exposition Commission. Oregon-
Building, World's -Fair Grounds, City
Dear Sirs: .
'The- executive committee of the Exposi
tion Corporation has given careful consideration-
to your communication qf the 12th,
of May, making demand for "strict com
pliance with the conditions of section 6
ot anact approved January 30. 1903"; also,
to a similar demand made by the commit
tee of six of your commission to our ex
ecutive committee at the conference with
the. executive committee held In the Ad
ministration building on the evening ot
the lUhlnst. To these several represen
tations' qf your commission, the execu
tive committee directs that the following
answer be made for the corporation.
On February .-0,1204. the Attorney-General
of this . state. . whom the law names
as your legal adviser, in an opinion ren
dered to the Governor. Secretary of State
and Treasurer, construed the act in ques
tion. Ini that opinion your legal adviser
stated that "-all- powers of initiative and
control in connection with the Exposition
as such, must necessarily be vested in"
said corporation,, "and there is nothing In
tbo act. as I view IU that divests said"
corporation of- or imposes upon the state
any of such ffowers.'' In transmitting
tliat opinion to the president of this cor
poration. the.Qovefho'r, Secretary of State
and State Treasurer, said:
" "We- heartily concur In this oplnlqn
ana will he governed byMt If any disagree
ment or controversy between the State
Commission and. your corporation should
at any time be referred to us, in accord
ance, with the provisions of said act. ...
We do not conceive it to' be our duty,
much less Is it our purpose or intention,
either as officers of -the State of Oregon,
or by virtue of anything contained In
said act. to -in any way. Interfere with
your corporation's management and con
trol of the Exposition."
ThUt,corporatIon certainly felt that the
opinion, so rendered by your official legal
adviser and concurred in by the board of
review named in- the- act, was a correct
lnterpretatlon-of the. act. and should and
would be so regarded by all concerned.
Since you have questioned the correct
ness of the Attorney-General's opinion
and have employed private counsel who
have given you a different opinion, thi3
corporation, has been advised by Its gen
eral counsel-ion the question involved.
They .concur in the opinion of the Attorney-General,
and say that as no act of
the Legislature- or attempted acceptance
thereof by any bfficers of a duly organ
ized, corporation pf this character could
compel or require such corporation tb
submit its internal! affairs to the . veto
power -of an putslde agency; the passage
of the act in qaestton did not require this
'corporation to do the things enumerated
in section 6 thereof, and no board, or
Official" or committee of this corporation
could.' by word-or deed, bind this corpo
ration to a compliance with the provisfods
of'thaf Septra. In-view of these opinions
of 'the Attaraey-General and its. general
counsel, vMs corporation magt adhere to
its foriaer position as .to -the strict legal
"coastructkm and effect of-.the act in ques
tion, notwithstanding', the extensive opia
fori to the contrary at "your couasel.:
-Bat aside frJMri: the legal questions involved.-
this coffXJratioa has ever been
