The Canonchet Scandal New Stories
About the Affair.
A dispatch from Providence, R.' I., to

tUG X UJ.J4. jt Bit V 3 . II Ui., :VrC-Ni
Lmck, the German tutor, who was so
mixed up in the Sprague-Conkling af
fair, continues to make additional state
ments. On Friday he unbosomed him
self to a city journalist regarding his so-
called statement published in tne frovi-
dence Journal. On the day following
the scene at Canonchet, .Linck received
a telegram from the Hon; Nelson W.
Aldrich. Representative in Congress
from this State, dated from this city,
and asking him to come to Providence
at once. Mr. Aldrich was acting in-con-
innetion with Mr: Danielson. editor of
the journal, ana .Senator Anthony.'to
shield Mr. Conklmanditwas very de
sireable that, sjome.tJu.ing . sfcoukl be pub
lished that would give to the world the
impression that Mr. Conknng was a
much-abused man, and innocent or the
charges gossipers had already begun to
mafee against him. JLincK came nere
and saw Mr. Danielson, and, after the
interview, wrote a very elaborate state
ment, that was to be published in the
Journal on the following Monday. He
then returned to jn arragansetT . ner,
taking up his residence at Lake Side,
On the day of the publication Linck
was much surprised, so he says, to re
ceive a visit from Mrs. Sprague, who
talked to himmherr severely for not
censuring the Governor's- conduct ili'a
stronger way in his statement. During
this tirade Linck learned Mrs. Sprague's
own lips the fact that Mr. Danielson
had sent a proof ot the statement. to
her at Narragansett Hotel very early on
Monday morning for her revision, and
that that accounted for many changes
in the wording and the mutilations that
were so apparent. Another trick play
ed upon the guileless German was that
perpetrated by Mr. Danielson, who,
when applied to by Xanek focadvice as
to whether it was best to get out a writ
for the .Governor's arrest, charging him
with assault, recommended that he go
to see K. H. Hazard and get legal ad
vice from him. Mr. Hazard was an in
timate friend of the Spragues, and a
confidant of Messrs. Danielson and An
thony, and was willing to aid the Jour
rial in its attempts to shield Mr. Conk
ling. He told Linck that Sprague's
great influence, together with the money
he could command, and the great cost
he TLinckl would be'putto, would make
it rather embarrassing' for him, and it
would be better for aD, if there was any
fancied difficulty to forget and forgive.
Linck was easily persuaded to drop the
matter, and so (Senator Anthonys en
