WASHINGTON , D. C. , April 12. )
The reports concerning the suit against
Bcrgeant-nt-Arrns Cnnady for alleged crook
edness In transactions relating to the sale of
lock of the Crcosotlng company , In whlcn ho
was Interested , created quite a sensation
hero. It has been known for some tlmo that
ugly stories concerning Mr. Canady's
financial transactions hnvo been current
among parties In Now York City nnd elsewhere -
where who have boon Induced by him to In
vest in various cnterorlses. ' The most serious
ono of nil the specifications in the complaint
cgnlntt him Is tnnt ho attached tlio name of
Senator John P. Jones to COO shares of stock
in the company , which had been issued in
the name of Jones without his knowledge or
consent , nnd that ho negotiated n sale ot n
loan of this stock for his own individual In
terest. Mr. Cnnndy's associates here arc
qualified to speak ou the subject. It Is said
that the difficulty has been pending for n
year or moro , and that the suits might have
been brought last yrar us well as this , but
the supposition Is that the complainants
wanted to glvo as much time ns they could fern
n settlement of the matter. The impression
is that the matter was permitted to go over
until after the adjournment of the special
icsslon of the senate , so ns to avoid any un
necessary complications , und to have the
case settled one way or another bcforo the
rcorgnmz.itlon of the senate ofllccrs this
winter coming.

ALASKA'S NEW GOVEIINOII.

day. The present governor arrived in Wash
ington' several days ago , and tendered hii
resignation to the secretary of the interior
Ho will return to Michigan nnd rc-outcr tin

Some Letters or Interest to Persona
Contomplntlnir Settlement ,
tf
WAsnfNOTON , April 12. The commissioner
of the general land ofllco made public to-day
several letters ns being of general interest to
persons contemplating settlement Id Okla
homa. Commissioner Stockslagcr , in re
plying to n letter from O. M. Wilson , at Ar
kansas City , Kani , savs in part :
" 1 hnvo to state that the lands in question
nro to bo disposed of to actual settlers under
the homestead laws only. A party desiring
to become nn actual settler under the homestead -
stead law s , may Initiate bis claim by entry
nt a district land ofllco after properly ox-
mniningand selecting the land desired , In
Which case ho Is allowed six months from
data of entry In which to establish his actual
residence on the land ; or , If ho so elect ,
ho may Initiate his claim by actual
settlement oti the land , which must consist
of some net or acts connecting himself with
the particular tract claimed , said act or acts
to bo equivalent to announcement of such
Intention and from which the public gener
ally may have notice of his claims. There
fore ho Is allowed three months within
which to mnko his claim of record by entry
in the district land office.
Another letter to Senator Ingalls fiom
Commissioner Stockslagcr , is ns follows :
"I hnvo had the honor to receive by reference
from you , nnd herewith return a letter
addressed to you by G. T. Sommors , dated
Oklahoma Station , Indian Territory , on the
20th ultimo. In reply I have to state that the
net of March 2,18s9 , to which Sotnmers re
fers provides , ns ho states , that no ono shall
be permitted to enter or acqulio any right to
any of the Oklahoma lands , to be disposed ot
thereunder , who violates its provisions by
entering upon and occupying the eamo prior
to 12 o'clock , noon , April 23 , the date fixed in
the president's proclamation of March 2J for
said lands to bccoino open for settlement.
The statute makes no exception to this pro
vision. 1 am Inclined to think , liowovovcr ,
that when a person wns already within these
lands at the duto of approval of the act by
authority , his prcscnco thcro should not be
regarded us a violation of this provision ot
net. The priuiury jurisdiction to net upon
application to enter rests with district land
olllccs , and Sommors may present his appli
cation for entry to them , with proper proof
of his allegation. Should they refuse to per
mit entry , ho may appeal from this action. "
Commlsslou6r Stockslnger to-day ex
pressed the opinion that 100,000 persons
would cuter Oklahoma within n mouth aftei
April 22. For these 100,000 people thcro arc
only about 10,000 homcstouils The inevit
able result ot this tremendous Influx , the
commissioner thought , would bo n great
mucy contests and personal conflicts. A
further result , ho feared , would bo the
spreading of this Immense surplus over the
adjoining Indian lands , from which It would
bo dlDlcult to dislodge them without mucl
trouble and possibly so mo bloodshed. If the
commission appointed to treat with the
Cherokecs for n cession of the Cherokee
outlet could complete their labors within the
next few months , so that the new traci
might bo open to settlement before congress
again meets , this might , nnd probably would ,
relieve the pressure. Otherwise ho fearet ]
that matters would become complicated unt
equilibrium restored with dlluculty.

QUEENBTOWN , April 12. The Inmnn line
iteamcr City of Chester , from Now York to
iivcrpool , which arrived here to-dnyrcports
.hat April 8 she passed the Danish steamer
Danmark from Christiana for Now York.
ho Danmark had been abandoned by her
row. Her stern was level with the sea , nnd
or bow stood high out of water. She was
pparcntly sinking. Tlio Danmark was a
csscl of 2,200 tons , nnd belonged to the
Thlngvalla lino.
NEW YOHK , April 12. A dispatch from
London was received nt the maritime ex-
ihungo this morning saying the steamer
Danmnrk from Christiana was seen April 8
Abandoned In mid-ocean. She is said to have
350 passengers on board , mostly Scandlim-
lans. Funch , Edyo & Co. , agents of the
jompatiy hero , say they place no reliance
n the dispatch , but have cabled to the agents
in London nnd Copenhagen for further information
mation ,
The greatest excitement prevails in ship
ping circles over the loss of the Danmnrk.
The Thingvnlla line is probably the largest
carrying immigrant line that plies between
this port nnd Europe. The Danmark had 6n
board when she loft Christiana for Now
York , March 23 , C50 passengers , presumably
Immigrants. The crew numbered forty men.
The ofllco of the agents of the steamer ,
Fuuch , Edyo & Co. , has boon thronged with
people all morning anxiously inquiring for
'liter news of the vessel.
The Dunmnrk was formerly the freight
steamer Jan Hydcl , of the White Cross lino.
Last full Fuuch , Edyo & Co. , who are also
pgents\f the latter line , had the vessel put
"n condition for passenger tralllc , ro-
: hristcncd nor the Danmark and transferred
her to tho. Thlngvalla licet. This was the
vessel's Ilrst trip from the other side under
her new colors.
The New York agents of the Thlngvalla
Jno this afternoon said that tbo steamer
Danmark had been overhauled , and it is
thought by all that she was the best of the
licet. There were on board at the time of
her departure from 710 to 775 people , of whom
050 wore passengers. The Dun murk was com
manded by CapUtn Gudson , nn old seaman ,
known for his courage nnd presence of mind ,
nnd ho is not a man to abandon n ship to the
mercies of the waves when there Is one
chance in oven a thousand of getting her
into port. No incoming steamship to this
time reports any life boats or rafts that
might have belonged to the Danmark. Even
If the Danmurk had been abandoned she had
sunicicnt means to accommodate nil passen
gers nnd crew.
Further particulars of the sighting of the
abandoned steamer Damn k by the City of
Chester have been slowly arriving since
noon. The Danmnrk was rapidly sinking
when the ChoLter saw her. There were no
visible signs of a collision. No wreckage
was floating about. The boats were all gene
from their davits , and nothing Indicating
haste and panic was noticeable.
No answers to cables sent by agents in this
city to London and Copenhagen have been
received up to 2 o'clock this afternoon. Ex
citement is still intense and agents are losing
hone. The steamship Iceland , of the Thing-
valla line , which loft Copenhagen four days
later than the Danmark , and which is duo
hnro to-night , will probably bring some intel
ligence of tbo disaster.
fioino Reassuring Signs.
Nnw YOHK , April 12. The following has
been received by the Associated press from
n ropresentatlverof the Thlngvalla Steam
ship line :
"As some of the comments on the reportet
loss of the Danish steamer Danmark express
apprehension thut this disaster may have
been accompanied by heavy loss of lifo , wo
beg leave to state , for the benefit of all per
sons who have friends on board the ill-fated
boat , our belief to the contrary. Wher
sighted by the City of Chester , Monday last ,
in latitude 45 55 , north , longitude 47 10 , west ,
the decks aft and the sa'is ' were in pieces ,
but the vessel was floating , and although the
reporting steamer exurcssed the belief that
she would shortly founder , this did not oc
cur during all the time that clupset
from the hour she was first sighted unti !
lost sight of. The Dunmurk was floating
directly in the track of transatlantic steam
era and we believe beyond pcradventun
that the passengers and crew were taken of !
some time , possibly as far back as n couple
of days before the City of Chester sightet
the wreck , since the Danmark , having lofi
Christiana on March 20 , should under ordin
ary circumstances have advanced consldcra
bly beyond the position found in. If tin
wrecked passengers and crow had not bcei
picked up they would naturally , even if em
barked in boats aud on rafts , have romainoi
In tlio nolghbornood of tbo wreck , the presence
enco of which would bo mucl
moro likely to attract passlni
steamers than small boats or rafts would
The citv of Chester evidently did not llm
the slightest wreckage near the vessel , sucl
as might bo attributed to smashed or other
wise incapacitated boats , whilst tbo steair.c
bore no sign whatever of human life. Wi
confidently believe , therefore , that , with tin
possible exception of single casualties sucl
as may occur during the transfer of so urnni
people from ono vessel to another , the pas
eougers and crow of the Denmark are safi
and will ere long bo heard of as on board o
ono of the trans-Atlantic steamers. "

A Secret Contract \vlth the St. Paul
Which Is Profitable , t
CIUCAOO , April 12. fdpeclal Telegram to
Tnn BEE. ] The discovery ot the fact that
the St. Paul road had n secret contract with
Armour & Co. , by the terms of which a mile
age of n cent n mlle on refrigerator cars was
given when the agreed rate was but three-
quarters of a cent , was Iho universal topic of
conversation to-day nmotiR railroad men.
The matter was brought up'in a meeting of
the Western Freight association. All the
roads thcn said that they had no outstand
ing contracts which would interfere with the
three-quarters of n cent h mlle rate given by
the railroad companies lo firms who owned
thnlrdown refrigerator'cars. The rate was
then made and , so far as known , all the lines
stuck to It except St. Paul. That line paid
the other packers three-quarters of n cent
nd paid Armour & Co. n cent n rallo nillc-
igo. No one soeins to know yet why the St.
'mil acknowledged tho'existence of the con-
ract. which Is dated December 17 , 1937. The
'act is , however , thutttio St. Paul announced
he existence of the contract in the Thursday
meeting of the Western' Freight association.
It created such a ! row that the
board of managers of the Inter-Stnto
Commerce Hallway association , which was
'n session In an adjoining room was called In
.o settle the matter. There was an oxccod-
ngly stormy time , but as the St. Paul con-
, ruct with Armour & Cd. had over three years
ongor to run , the other roads had to tnko
.heir mcdlcino and nlfe'o adopt the ono cant
n mile rate. A gonornljmnnagor of a promi
nent western roads is quoted ns saying :
' "Tdo secret rate made by the St. Paul with
Armour & Co. , is n practical cut in rates , as
it gnvo the firm a quarter ot a cent a mile
moro for the use of Its cars than it could
have obtained over any other road. It comes
under the clause In the inter-state commerce
net declaring it illegal tt > offer any rebate or
consideration calculated to influence trafllc.
Then while the St. PauJ was paying Armour
& Co. ono cent n mile fqr the use of their re
frigerator cars , they were paying other firms
but three-quarters of n cent. That is the
ilainest Kind of discrimination. "
"How will it end I" -
"In nothing at all. Any Individual or cor
poration could bring nn action under the
intor-stato commerce jact , against the St.
Paul , nnd undoubtodlv secure convictions
under both charges. Hut no ono will bring
charges , nnd the only satisfaction wo will
got will bo in paying out thousands of dol-
ars to packing firms who run their own re
frigerator cars. "
"Won't the president's association bring
the charges in accordance with the resolution
passed Tuesday , to nt as an association
against any road which , Violated the terms of
the inter-stato commerce act ! "
"Well , I should say not You will bo gray-
haired bcforo they over bring charges. The
railroads ought to bring charges , but they
won't. The packers , who have been discrim
inated against , ought to bring charges , but
neither will thoy. "
Chairman Walker , of the Inter-State com
merce Railway association , said in answer tea
a question : "Wo are organized to punish
any and all Inf motions of the inter-state com
merce act , nnd wo shall do it. " Whether or
not the association would or would not bring
charges against the St. Paul , Mr. Wntker
claimed not to know. " Ho said , however ,
that anyone could bring charges to the asso
ciation against any road , uiul if substan
tiated , suit would bo begun in thonamoof the
association. In to-day's meeting of the West
ern Freight association it was agreed that
copies of all contracts In regard to cur mile-
ace should bo submitted to .Chairman Faith-
horn , ho to report wWip of the contracts , if
any , contained tcrmS'or-'oDdltlons-calculatcd

The Street Car Strike.
MINNEAPOLIS , April 12. There has boon
no change In the status of the street railway
nnd motor strike since last night. The strlk-
rs offered to submit the matter to arbltra-
Ion , but President Lowry refused to enter-
aln tlio proposal. The company has ro-
olvcd n great many applications for work ,
nd asserts that the places of the strikers
can easily bo filled.
The street car company made Its Ilrst for-
nal attempt to raise the strike nt 1 o'clock
his afternoon , The move was made at the
fourth avenue car barns. A special detail
of policemen was on hand to ride In the car
ind see that order was kept. President
Lowry and Manager Frederick drove to the
pot In n carriage to sco the Ilrst wheel move.
The car proceeded on its way , but had not
rene twenty foot before It was stopped by
ho men , the horses unhitched , and the car
ihtivcd back Into the barn. Thopollcouion on
.he . car made no attempt to arrest anyone.
ST. PAUL , April 12. All the street car men
n this city struck at 3 this afternoon.
Shortly before 4 o'clock this afternoon , as
Tourth avenue car was on its way back , it
van surrounded by a hugo and excited
; rowd. Finally someone set the brake on
.ho . rear platform and stopped It. At the
unction n squad of mounted pollco dashed
out of nn alloy way from the Central pollco
station nnd rushed at full speed into the
crowd , with clubs drawn. Once in the center
of the crowd , they arrested three men and
returned. Tlio crowd was constantly
lugmonting nnd was getting very violent ,
fo make matters worse , a number of express
vagons filled with strikers drova in front of
the cars nnd succeeded In making n com-
ileto blockade. The driver of the cur llnally
unhooked his horses and went oft amid the
sheers of the crowd , leaving the car stand-
ng on the track.
A little later another car on Washington
ivonuo , while on Its way back , was blockaded
jy two wood carts , which were dropped on
, ho corner of Washington and Henncpin.
The driver became disgusted , and , tmhitch-
ncr his horses , drovo.ofT. <
The situation was getthiB serious. A
great many stones had been thrown nnd ex
citement ran ut fever heat. Three mounted
policemen charged the crowd , throwing down
several people and injuring a number. Sev
eral arrests were made this time and one
man was unmercifully clubbed by six or
seven policemen. Tha attempt to move cars
xvas then abandoned and the crowd became
less demonstrative nnd gradually thinned
out , leaving two cars on the track. Thus
indcd n day in which Lowry prophesied that
Jo would have all his cars running on every
line bcforo night.
THE HO US 13 OF COMMONS.
Dnlfour Evasively Itoplies to His Par-
ncllitc IntorromnorH.
LONDON , April 12. In the commons this
evening Professor Stewart ( radical )
asked iBalfour whether the circular sent to
the Irlsh poli'co' directing them , to collate all
secret Information regarding the doings of
members of the National league was de
signed to aid the London Times. Ualfour
milled evasively and Pnrnell demanded u
straight-forward answer. The circularho said
was n fact. The use made of Uic circular
proved that the government was the prosecu
tor behind the Times. Referring to tno use
of battering rams In enforcing evictions in
Donegal , ho protested against such cruelty
and barbarity.
Haltour ignored the question regarding the
secret circular. Regarding battorini ; rams ,
he held that It was necessary to use them.
Sir William Veruon Hnrcourt described
the policy of Balfour as one of extermina
tion.
tion.Goshcn
Goshcn declared that the Parnellites were
responsible for that. They had substituted
warfare between landlord nnd tenant for
friendly relations based on recent laws ,
which put Irish tenants in a moro favored
and protected position than any people In the
world. Evictions were not taking place be
cause tenants could not pay rout , but be
cause they would not do so.
