We study dynamics of dark solitons in the theory of the DNLS equation by the method based on imposing the condition that this dynamics must be Hamiltonian. Combining this condition with Stokes' remark that relationships for harmonic linear waves and small-amplitude soliton tails satisfy the same linearized equations, so the corresponding solutions can be converted one into the other by replacement of the packet's wave number $k$ by $i\kappa$, $\kappa$ being the soliton's inverse half-width, we find the Hamiltonian and the canonical momentum of the soliton's motion. The Hamilton equations are reduced to the Newton equation whose solutions for some typical situations are compared with exact numerical solutions of the DNLS equation.
