THE MENTONE OUTRAGE.
A Sworn Statement Filed at the State
Department.
Gardner Von Nostrand, the brother of one
of the American ladies who were arrested in
Mentone, France, at the instigation of a milli
ner, was at the Department of State this morn
ing. He made a formal statement of the case,
which contained nothing in addition to what
lias already been published, except a sworn
statement of his sister, which agrees in all
material points with that made by Mrs. Dorr.
1 he papers have been tiled and the depart

ILLEGAL AM) VOID.
The Suspended Star-RoHte Contracts?
They Amount to $147,000.
In the matter of the star-route contracts,
suspended by second assistant postmaster-gen
eral W bitfield, because of apparent illegal, if
not fraudulent execution, the assistant attor
ney-general for the 1'oet-Offlco department has
just rendered a decision. He holds the entire
series of contracts, amounting to some ?147,000,
to be illegal and void. The proposals upon
which the contracts were based, and which
were tiled in the office of the second assistant
postmaster-general in January last, while held
to be irregular in many respects, are not
deemed absolutely void. The assistant attor
uey-general holds that, based upon these pro
posals, new contracts prooerlv and legally exe
cuted. with good and sufficient bonds, mav be
received.
Contract 101.
The opinion of the assistant attorney-general
is very full and recites at length the exculpa
tory evidence presented by the contractors and
their attorneys.
He says in regard to some of the contracts:
"As regards certain executory contracts there
can be no qut stion as to their illegal execution
I he evidence of W. II. Smith, who is a con
tractor concerned in this controversy, shows
that in contract No. 101 he. for and on behalf
or John 11. Pigg. a contractor, signed said
* 'Kg s name to the contractor's oath, and took
the oath for Pigg before Sallie Shelton. post
master, and that in other cases said W H

or s oaths and took the oath for Underwood l>e

GARRETT PARK ASSOCIATION.
A .Movement to Make a Chunge in the
Management.
The annual meeting of the Garrett Park as
sociation which owns a track of land on the
Metropolitan road this side of Rockville, will
be held to-morrow at the park. There is a
movement on foot to make a change in the
management of the association, and an ani
mated election contest is expected. The pres
ent officers are as follows: President. Geo. H.
Burni; vice-presidents. Capt. J. J. S. Hassler
and Judge E. F. Best; secretary. H. N. Copp;
treasurer. S. D. Lincoln, and a board of direct
tors consisting of B. B. Det/ick. H. I'. B. Holt.
E. M. Dawson. Geo. II. Itice, W. D. Harlan and
W. H. Eowdermilk. There are 2.800 share of
stock which are held in small blocks. Some
of the present managers say that the entire
management originated in a desire to get con
trol ot the association, and especially the of
fices of secretary and treasurer, to which small
salaries are attached.
A NOTICE TO STOCKHOLDERS.
The stockholders linve received a notice urg
ing them to attend the meeting to-morrow,
stating that the stock has depreciated in the
present management I and that a change is

Oklahoma Town Sites.
Thirteen applications for town sites in the
King Fisher district in Oklahoma territory and
twelve in the Guthrie district have been re
ceived at the gem ral laud office. Land Com
missioner Stockslager said to-day that no action
would be taken in these laud-site cases except
to refer them to the registers aud receivers of
the land office, for the purpose of ascertaining
whether the land is used for business purposes.
If such is the case the land cannot be subject
to homestead entry. Mr. Stockslager stated
that no title could be given in such cases until
some action was taken by Congress authorizing
it. He added, however, that persons who in
good faith settle upon and occupy lots in such
sites will without doubt ultimately receive title.
Adjudged to be Insane.
To-day a Jury of thirteen was in session at
the court-house to determine the question of
the lunacy of Mrs. Ethel Lynch, of George
town. Dr. J. McV. Mackall, when called to the
stand, raised the point that a physician should
not.be required to testify, except as an expert,
and declined to testify except as such. A re
cess was taken, and the marshal and Mr. For
rest, representing the District, reported the
v to,Jud8c to*- The latter informed the
physician that he was being examined as to
acts already in his possession and was not
called as an expert, and it was expected that he
would testify as an ordinary witness. Dr.
Mackall returned and gave his testimony, and
hearing other testimony,
adjudged Mrs. Lynch to be insane.

HEALY AND BIGGAR TESTIFY.
They Tell the Parnell Commission of
Their Connection With the League.
London, May 29.?Mr. Maurice Healy, M.
P.. for Cork, was placed in the witness box at
to-day's sitting of the Parnell commission. He
admitted that the National league of Cork had
received applications from various branches of
the league for lists of the names of merchants
and members of the league in order that all
others might be boycotted. In answer to an
interrogation. Mr. Healy held that this practice
was legitimate.
Mr. Joseph Biggar, M. P.. for West Cavan.
deposed that he was expelled from the
supreme council of Fenians because he advo
cated constitutional methods. He afterwards
joined the league. His speech in 1NS0. in
which ho referred to llartuian having imita
tors in Irelaul. had been.misread. He reallv
only intended to warn the whig* that the dis
gust of the people might result in the use of
dynamite. He subsequently advised the peo
ple to see to it that the laud was of no value to
land grabbers. He also admitted saying that
while it was no part of the league to recom
mend the shooting of landlords, it would de
fend persons charged with shooting them or
their agents. Mr. Biggar said that he spoke
thus because he had no confidence in the ad
ministration of the law in Ireland. Moreover,
he believed that the league should defend pris
oners when the crimes with which they were
charged arose from bad laws. He said that
Mr. Egan and he were trustees of the league's
funds. He was unable to associate Eg-an with
the Sheridan outrage.
NEVEU CONTRIBUTED TO FENIAN FCXD8.
Mr. Biggar said he had contributed nothing
to the Fenian funds. His object in joining the
brotherhood was to obtain its assistance in
parliamentary elections.
Sir Henry Jonnes, for tho Tintes, cross
examined Mr. Biggar.
Witness said he never took part in the work
of the league's treasurer. He never drew a
check or saw a bank book. He was naturally
indolent and left the work to others. He did
not know where the record of the money deal
ings of the league was kept, nor did he even
know why he had been associated with Eagau
as treasurer. Just before the suppression of
tlie laud league most of the books were re
moved. Thirty-two books had been handed to
Mr. Soames, the solicitor for the Timet.
Presiding Judge Mauueu remarked that this
was the first time he had heard about these
books.
Sir Henry Jonnes said that it was a mistake.
There were no such books in Mr. Soames' pos
session.
Mr. Biggar said that all the important books
of the league had been removed to England.
They were very bulky. He did not know that
any of the books had been destroyed. He had
not the slightest idea of what had became of
the missing documents.

OONNECTlON WITH THE COSSPIRACT?WILLIAMS
AND 8MITII SAID TO HAVE BEEN AKHEMTED.
Chicaoo, May 29.?The testimony. m elicited
before the grand jury in the Cronin case ye?- |
terday. wax not only very important, but thor- |
ough. Each and every witness summoned was
put through a series of questions such as J
called up their remembrance of facts from the ,
greatest to the smallest in importance.
^ The chief witness was the milkman, Mertes.
Said he: "I passed the Carlson cottage on the
night of the murder. I saw a buggy contain
ing two men and u white horse drive"np to the
door. The man mm ted on the left jumped from
his seat hastily and rau up the steps. He car
ried two packages. Before he had time to
kuock at the door it was opened, it appearing
to me that some one was waiting inside the
hallway. At the instant the man stepped in- !
side the door the man in the buggy whipped
up and drove rapidly to the north street, I
wiiere he went to the west and was
lost to sight. I had been driving past
the cottage when 1 saw the man in the buggy
get out and run up the steps and the buggy
drive away. After attending to my business at
a grocery near by, I returned over the same
road past the cottage on my way home. T1i*h
was. perhaps, thirty-five minutes later. I ,.?w
a light in the cottage and heard a hammering
or smashing sound.''
It was plainly evident from the above testi
mony that the man who rau so rapidly up the
stairway was Dr. Croniu, intent on rendering
succor to some dying man.
THE NEXT WITNESS WAS CARLSON, SR.,
the owner of the cottage, who said:
"When the man who called himself Frank
Williams rented my cottage March 20. I noticed
that lie went over and talked to Sullivan, the
ice man. lie apparently talked familiarly with
him. As the 20ili of April approached and th<'
rent day was coming near, I 1>< gan to think it
strange th.it my tenant did not occupy the
premises. I wanted a reliable tenant. Seeing
the man had talked with Sullivan. 1 stepped
over and spoke of his queer conduct in not liv
ing in the house he had rented, and added
that I felt somewhat auxious about my rent and
the permanency of the tenant "
"He's all right." said Mr. KuUivan to me.
"He will pay you all right enough when the
month is up." Mr. Sullivan at first denied
that he ever saw the man.
The connection of Iceman Sullivan with the
Croniu mystery and the cause of his arrest and
detention are here made plainly apparent.
YOU NO CARLSON WAS THE NEXT WITNESS.
for the state. "I was present," said he, "when
the furniture was brought to the cottage?two
days after the rental?March 22. Two men,
calling thciuselvca Williams, unloaded the truck.
The driver remained seated. He did not han
dle the goods. I casually stepped up to the
driver and discovered that he was a Swede. I
spoke to him in that language and he told me
that he had brought the luruiture from 117
Clark street."
The story of the men who rented the cottage,
having formerly roomed at 117 Clark street,
where the furniture was taken by A. 11. Hevall
A Co., is thus verified:
young mrs. Carlson's story.
The next witness was one of importance.
She was young Mrs. Carlson, and was attired in
deep black with a heavy mourning veil cover
ing her face. Said she: "I visited my mother
in-law March 20. While at this home-a cot
tage which sits in the rear of the fatal cottage ?
a man knocked at ihc door and entered. He
came from the ba k part of the pr. uiise-. in the
vicinity of Sulliv.-.n's l,aru or liou-e. He said
he desired to see the cottage which was lor
rent. Old Mr. Carlson took him over and
showed him about tlie place. Ihey returned
and the man said he would lake thecottagc. at
the same tiiu< producing ci2. the
| amount of the first month's rent. He
gave his name as Frank Williams. While the
receipt for Uie money was being m.tde out
young Mr. Carlsou ask- d Mr. W illiams what his
business, calling or profession was. This did
not suit Williams, for he looked sulleuly at his
questioner and at all of us. and then lowering
his eyes said: *1 aui employed down town.1 I
remarkid shortly after he ieft that he seemed
mad at the q:i ?stioiL When he departed he
did not go to the front, toward Ashlaud avenue,
but started over toward Sullivan's. He seemed
uuxious to get out of the house."
The description given by Mrs. Carlson tallies
very closely with that given by Woodruff of the
man he called King, and who, he said, gave him
the trunk-hauling job.
Mr. and Mrs. Conklin. at whose house Dr.
Croniu boarded, were th<- next witnesses. Thev
told how Dr. Croniu was driven away in a buggy
With a while horse.
COUOHLIN SAID TO HAVE CONFESSED.
There was a report privately mentioned that
when Coughlin heard of his indictment he at
ouee sent tor Captain Schaack and gave him a
complete statement of all he knew, acknowl
egliig that he had lied from the beginning to
end about the Smiths from Hancock. Mich., in
order to save himself, and explaining his con
nection with the conspiracy tully. An attempt
to reach Captain Schaack failed and the report
eould uot be verified.
Black, alias Woodruff, was also much con
cerned over his indictment, and was known to
have had a long conversation witli a detective
after midnight, in which he gave the names of
several persons alleged to be implicated m the
murder.
The last reports last night indicated that
Sullivan. Coughlin and "W oodruff" were run
ning a race in the "squealing" line in order to
beat each other in securing immunity from
punishment by becoming a witness for the
state. It was said Coughliu was in the lead.
WHO WAS THE MAN?
It is stated that the Pinker tons have ascer
tained that city Detectives Coughliu aud
W'halen hurried a man off on a northwestern
train ou the night of May 4. the date of Dr.
Crouin's disappearance. The police yesterday
made another investigation of the Carlson
house, and discovered some new nails in the
floor. It was at once inferred that the con
spirators had removed some of the boards and
buried Dr. Cronm's clothes, jewelry aud medi
cal box between the two floors. Last night
officers were detailed to pry up the flooring,
but the result of their search has not been
made public.
ALDERMAN M'CORMACK'S DENIAL.
In regard to the story told by a private de
tective named Bruce. printed last evening in
the Daily A'ew*, to the effect that he (Bruce)
had been offend a sum of money to kill Dr.
Croniu, Alderman McCormack says there is no
truth in the story whatever. He says it is a
piece of spite work on the part of Bruce. Mc
Cormack further stated he intends to take legal
steps to have Bruce punished for his false
statement.
LUKE DILLON 18 UN EASY.
With the exception of W. J. Hyues, the attor
neys, it is evident that all the prominent Irish
men are shut out of the police couference. aud
are totally in the dark in regard to the course
being pursued by the authorities in the Cronin
investigation.
Luke Dillou, of Philadelphia, has entered a
vigorous protest against the actions of the Chi
cago police, and says they are not on the right
track, aud will not listen to suggestions from
men in a position to put them in the right way.
He says it is not a sure thing that auy Irish so
ciety had anything to do with the murder of
Croiiin, and is evidently angry to think that
the police would think of such a thiug for a
moment, and is anxious to turn them from in
vestigation on that line.
As a matter of fact Mr. Dillon does not know
and has no means of knowing what course the
police are pursuing. Chief Hubbard nid this
morning thtt he did not know Mr. Dillon and
hud never seen him. If that gentleman has
auy valuable suggestions to make or pointers
to give, the chief is uot aware of the fact If
he or any other man has auv suggestions to
make the chief will listen to them but will not
tell outsiders what he is doing. ""
ANOTHER IMPORTANT ARREST MADE.
It la quietly given out to-day that the polioe
made another arrest in the Cronin case this
morning. Willard J. Smith, the Michigan
friend of Coughlin, is the man who is reported
to have been mysteriously gathered in by the
police. Smith is the man for whom Coughlin
says h? hired the horse and buggy on the night
Dr. Cronin was murdered. A day or two ago
Smith, who suddenly turned up, denied thai he
went out riding that night, but tutor develop
ments indicate that h? lied when he mad. that
statement Smith lia* the same crooned-he ?d
like eyee. shifty and mall. iWriM by the
liyeryman. 1'iuan who let oat the now famous
white horse. Furthermore. Smith is positively
? dentitied aa the man who came to |?r. Croniu's
house that fatal Saturdav nitrht and lured him '?
i Altogether it M em* aa though the
police had a truck another important 1m' in the

The 7Vtbuat' this morning publishes iuauy
column, of a reporter'* investigation into
Starkey's connection with the Crouiu murder.
It aaya: "The proof ia conclusive that Starkey
supplied Charles Ixnig. the Toronto reporter,
with the cue and materials for the latter", re
ports of Cronin'* presence in Canada and in
terview* ^ with him. For months before the
murder Starkey was in communication with
the acknowledged enemies of I ?r. Cronin and

in Canada from the ware-house receipt law of
Louisville. Ky.
"In the Toronto Empire of February 21 ap
peared an article written by Long -roasting'

spirators, bought the furuiture

and the trunk in which Dr. Cronin s body wa?
carried from the place where he ?x killed.
The article was written ou February 2l> and
printed February 21. Simmons rented No. 117
Clark street February 20. and bought hi* fur

two conspiracies, one in t hicago. the other in
Toronto, should both be started the same dav?"
The Trtbtme r. porter had along talk with
Long in which the latter at first stuck to hi*
storv that he luwl seen Cronin in Toronto, but
finally practically admitted that he and Starkev
ha<l fixed up the alleged interview with Croniii.
It was found that Starkry and a prominent
Irish-American of Chicago had met in Wind

Atilerican had paid over to Starkev "fN.dOO m
cash which he liml obtained for him from a

or United Brotherhood, or L H. R. W. What
took place at \\ nidsor beside* the transaction
mentioned is not altogether a matter of (pecu
lation. Facts were assimilated in the matter,
which show that Starkey shortly after the
W indsor conference, began w^rk on the under
taking which has since brought him luto mora
intimate connection than ever with the enemies
of Cronin. About the middle of February
Starkey received a visit from a man from Chi
cago. This man possessed brains of a high

"covering several days ou each side of Febru

Atter this man * return to Chicago a regular
correspondence ensiled between him and
Starkey. The correspondence ceased oulv with
Starkey's departure froui Toronto.
This man s name and that of the prominent
Irish-American who met Starkey in Windsor
