Washington, April 25. —The Secretary

Washington, April 25.—Commissioner
Stockelager, of the General Land Office,
today said that from present indications
the contests over land claims in Okla
homa would ultimately involve nearly
every quarter section of land in that ter
ritory. This beiDg the case, he thought it
probable that the Department would make
the Oklahoma contest cases a separate
class and dispose of them at once. Other
wise, in the ordinary course of business,
it would last eighteen months, or two
years, before they could be reached.
The contests in which abandonment is
charged, could not be passed upon until
after the expiration of six months, as
tbe law does not recognize the deser
tion of a claim for a shorter period than
six months as abandonment, but the
cases in which fraud or violation of the
law, or of the President's proclamation, in
going into the Territory prior to April
22d, could be tried and disposed of at

today tbe resolution agreeing to an arbi
tration contract for the control and har
monious operation of the roads in the

ends the scheme to obtain a guarantee of
the dividend on the Oregon Navigation
stock from the Northern Pacific, jointly
with the Union Pacific, and throws the
burden of the lease on the Union Pa ific.

contracts were presented. Only one
was received, however, after which

The Awards Made.
In the Herald yesterday morning the
announcement of the award made to
Mrs. Bigelow and Mr. Schatto, for dam
ages caused by the building of tbe First
street viaduct, was made. The Arbitra
tion Board based their awards on the fol
lowing grounds:
I. The erection of the elevated bridge
is done for public convenience, and for
the protection of life and property to
those people who of necessity must use
said street in order to reach their homes,
and for legitimate business purposes, al
though it is not an absolute public ne
11. By the erection of the viaduct
neither party loses any property rights.
111. The properties in question are
deprived of their easement in using the
street as originally laid out and used by
them, and it is the duty of tbe municipal
government to protect such rights, which
your commission thinks has not been
done in this case; and, therefore, said
properties are entitled to consequential
damages. And while the Santa Fe Rail
road Company, and also the Cable Com
pany and the public at large, will receive
benefits, the property of Mrs. Bigelow
and Mr. Schatto will receive a damage.

Qhildren Cry for Pitcher's Castorfe;
She Resented Interference with Her
Little Amusements.
Clinton P. Ferry, the millionaire lum
ber merchant of Tacoma, and Commis
sioner for Washington Territory to the
Paris Exposition, is another convert to
the belief that marriage is a failure. Mr.
and Mrs. Ferry arrived in Paris about a
year ago, and took a handsome house on
the Avenue Carnot. Mr. Ferry devoted
the greater part of his time to tbe col
lection of paintings and bric-a-brac.
Mrs. Ferry spent most of her leisure
hours in shopping, visiting friend",
and painting tbe town a bea •
tiful carmine color. During ore
o' her shopping tours she
fell in love with a handsome young
clerk in the Grand Magazin do Louvre,
and forthwith engaged him to teach her
the French language. He became a fre
quent visitor at the Avenue-Carnot mar -
sion, and some two weeks ago Mr. Ferry
drorped in on the pair very suddenly,
informed his wife that she "did not
know right from wrong," and kicked the
clerk into the street. Then Mr. and
Mrs. Perry had a scrapping match, dur
ing the course of which, the former re
ceived a black eye, and had his forefin
ger broken. Then Mrs. Ferry's absences
from home became more frequent and of
longer duration than usual, and a lynx
eyed detective was set to watch her. On
Wednesday last this official located Mrs.
F. and her lover in a fourth-rate hotel
in a disreputable quarter of the city, and
shortly after, in company with Mr. F.,
proceeded to the hotel in question, broke
in tbe door of the room, and found suf
ficient evidence to convince them that it
wasn't the French language Mrs.F. most
desired to perfect herself in. The lover
made his escape during the melee which
ensued, and when time was called Mr.
F. was minus his nose, and had a black
eye, and the detective was found doubled
up under the bed, trying to ascertain
just how many teeth he had swallowed.
Mr. Ferry is now suing for a divorce.
His wife has disappeared. At Mr.
Ferry's request the Governor of Wash
ington Territory will appoint another
Commissioner to the Exposition.
