VITUS ENCAMPMENT, Ancient Order Knights of the Red Cross, meets in Masonic Temple. Sir Knights from other Encampments aordlally Invited to visit us. LOCAL AFFAIRS from Friday's Daily Work on the various excavations in town was partially suspended yesterday on account of the rain. The numbering of the buildings in the city is now in progress and will be a great convenience for strangers in finding par ticular houses either residences or places of business. Mr. H. B. Bush, proprietor of the North Pacific House, was made a present from his wife ot a big bouncing girl on Tuesday evening, 20th inst. Roth mother and child are doing well. Mrs. L. T. Hamilton has been confined to her bed by sickness during the past week. Her many friends will be happy to learn that she was able to be up again yesterday, although not well enough to be out. The copy of the Bismarck Leader before us gives evidence that the Alert is received at that office. The Leader is a good and sprightly little paper aud we like to read it even though we do occa sionally encounter an article that appears somewhat familiar. The dining room girls ot the Grand Central hotel will give a social hop at Klaus hall ©n Friday evening, 30th inst., They are making eveiy necessary arrange ment for a pleasant and enjoyable time, and will no doubt be liberally encour aged in their laudable enterprise by the people of the city generally. Dr. Drake, accompanied by Mr. riall with all the usual equipments pertaining to the enjoyable pastime of endeavoring to help depopulate the feathered world, left Jamestown four days ago for a long trip out through the "Cotabs," no doubt intending to surprise the natives oa their return with a wagon-load of game. Well, they did surprise most everybody with the result of their four day's labor, con sisting of one goose, one duck and four eggs. Verily, the reward of the spring time sportsman is large. Mr. J. M. Eldridge, of Davenport, 1st paid the Alert a very pleasant call yes terday. He is the possessor of very ex tensive farming interests Stutsman county, a large portion of which lie con tiguous to the town that hears his name seven miles west of Jamestown. Mr. Eldridge is president of the Board of Trade in Davenport, and has been the prime mover in the matter of procuring an appropriation from the United States government of $300,000 to construct canals that state by means of which a direct r.ute of navigation will he opened from Davenport to New York. Mr. E. pays Jamestown a visit generally twice a year and at every visit has a compliment to pay our city regard to her rapid growth and improvement From Saturday Daily. There are eighteen individuals who have been unfortunate enough to break the law now incarcerated in Sheriff Mc Kechnie's bastile. Attorney Rose, solicitor for the North Dakota Loan and Trust Company of this city, returned yesterday from a three week's business trip in the East. The people are already taking hold of the project of duly celebrating Memorial Day with an energy that insures not only success but a very enjoyable day. The fishing dawn below the mill-dam still holds out good, and those who have the leisure time kill a great deal of itjan line for the unsuspecting pickerel. Wm. Brewer, a friend of Alfred Dickey, arrived in the city yesterday. Mr. Brew er is a No. 1 hard farmer down south near Dickey's Landing, on the James. T.J.Jones, the extensive south-side machinery agent, received yesterday 2,780 lbs. of twine for the celebrated Deering Twine Binder. This amount of cord alone is sufficient to bind 40,000 acres. Banker R. E. Wallace returned from Chicago yesterday, accompanied by his wife and children who have been spend ing the winter in Pennsylvania, also his cousin, who was formerly engaged in the drag business in Newcastle, Pa. Hon. Johnson Nickeus who went down to Yankton to hear the arguments before the supreme court in the capital commission case returned home yester day. Policeman Lewis raked in three penni less vagrants night before last who upon examination yesterday morning were dis charged #o promising to leave the town within 24 hours Geo. Webster, whom the boys used to call "Williamson's Kid" when he perform ed the duties of assistant county treas urer two years ago at the old court house, is on visit to his«many friends in the city from his home in Aberdeeu, D. T. Four soldiers belonging to company of the 17th regiment U. S. A. arrived in the city a few days ago having journeyed on foot from Fort Sisseton to this place and were met to day by the government ambulance drawn by four lire eyed mules and conveyed to their destination at Fort Totten. Yesterday's noon train going west con tained two extra second class sleeping cars which were crowded to their utmost capacity with emigrant families bound for the Pacific slope. These new sleep ing cars for the accommodation of second class passengers are well ventilated and very comfortable being quite an acquisi tion to the road. J. S. Ilotchkiss, manager of the James town planing mills, has secured the con tract for supplying the new Lloyd Hotel with all the necessary mill woodwork, and this coupled with the order for the same supplies for the Klaus' Hotel, the new school house, Churchill & and Webster's new building and Alfred Dickey's resi dence keeps the mill running with a full head of steam. Chas. D. Francis is in the metropolis on business and will probably linger with the boys making their hearts glad as usual until 3tonday next when he is compelled to return to his isolated home and family ties at Spintwood. When Charley is asked why he makes such a hermit of himself he very philosophically replies: 'Tis better to bear the ills we ha?e, than ply to others we know not of. Yesterday was quite a busy day among the peace officers in and out of the city. At the usually quiet and moral town of Windsor, about 18 miles west, there ap peared to be a desire on the part of some of its citizens to "paint the town red" on Thursday evening. The peacemakers thereupon sent for sheriff McKechnie who appeared on the scene yesterday morning and brought ten of the delin quents to town. They are safely housed in the usual place of abode for such per sons and will have a hearing before a jus tice of the peace this morning. From Sunday's Daily. Sheriff Hall, from Foster county, is in the city on official business. W. H. Keefer, of Lincoln, Neb., is in the city, having traveled nearly all over the noithwest. Jim Winslow was busy all yesterday afternoon with his bay team and road wagon conveying his office funiture from the old building to his now one opposite the First National Hank. The finance committee for Memorial day published the other morning should have read Vennum, Calkins and Miller In guessing at Wade's chirography the names of Collins and Wilbur were sub stituted for the two last-named on the committee. C. L. Judd, our city photographer, planted his camera on the southeast cor ner of Sixth avenue and Front street, yesterday afternoon and took a photo graph of the Northern Pacific dining car with all the employees attached to that hotel on wheels. It would be a good scheme if the cere monies of laying the corner-stone of the insane asylum could be postponed until the 4th of July, when there would be a large crowd in the city and that coupled with the other attractions, would com bine to make a good gala day of the holi day. Attorney W. E. Dodge returned from ankton yesterday, where he and numer ous other attorneys went to hear the ar guments in the capital commission case before the supreme court. Mr. Dodge left before the decision was rendered, but says it was the very general opinion among disinterested attorneys who heard it that the decision would be what it is. Mr. Dodge thinks the appeal to the supreme court of the United States will not affcfct the force of the decision. A man by the name of J. R. Whitcomb dropped dead in the Merchant's Hotel at La Moure yesterday from some un known cause. It appears the deceased is same man who occupied the position of cook during last winter at the Grand Central Hotel here. He left for LaMoure, leaving his family here, and it is supposed was engaged at the hotel where he died. The wife and family of deceased resided at No. 1, in the building of tenement houses on the north side, and were in the act of moving to another house when a telegram was received containing the account of his death. The notices Mayor Lloyd has posted around town in regard to vagrants and tramps having to report themselves as such at the police headquarters wll prob ably have the effect of causing a portion to continue their journey and seek green er fields and pastures new. Still we cling to the idea of either the chain gang or a rock pile institution. If, for instance, a number of these worthless individuals who are frequently arrested and commit ted to Jail where the}' become a constant expense to every taxpayer, having to be snpplied with the necessaries of life for which the city receives no return, were to be placed under the charge of an offi cer and compelled to pound rock all day, it would be but a short time before they would skip the country, or if they chose to work in that manner, the city would receive some return for the money ex pended to keep them in having stone to macademize our principal streets. From Tuesday's Dally Carpenter 11 G. McKay has entered the employ of the Northern Pacific R. li. and left for Cooperstown on yesterday's noon train. Station Agent Wm.Sheriff appeared on the street yesterday with a handsome new cap, on which is written in gold letters the title of his office. Miss Belle Schwellenbacli, from Fred erick, D. T., is in the city paying a visit to her sister Mrs. D. R. Long and the many old friends she has in Jamestown. Sheriff Hall of Foster county left for Carrington on his fire-eyed pony yester day. The sheriff ignores (lie railroad aud claims his pony can distance their fastest time on the branch. Tne Jamestown Hardware Co.'s front window was broken into during the night of Saturday last aud a revolver with a few b»xes of cartridges stolen by some unknown parties. The actual value of the expense of replacing the large pane ot glass that they destroyed. The Bismarck Journal, Col. Lonnsber ry's newspaper, has made its appearance, and in typographical appearance as well as editorial ability is a first class weekly, and is highly creditable to the capital city even in its third heaven of glory to which it is raised by the recent decision of the supreme court in the capital com mission case. Z. S. Martin's horse rail away on Fifth Avenue North Sunday afternoon, throw ing Mrs. Martin out of the vehicle with fortunately little or no damage, but a by-stander, who attempted to stop the horse in its headlong gallop, was thrown against a post and sustained several bruises and cuts about th-3 head. Peter Aubertin's horse made a bold rush for libert}- yesterday down Fifth avenue and Font street, capsizing the wagon and pinning the driver beneath the wagon box to a pile of lumber, l'ete finally stopped the frightened animal and Chief Dewyrc extricated the driver from his uncomfortable position with nothing but a bruise or two to remind of him the accident. TheJamcfitown Alert lias solved one of tlie greatest biblical problems poor blind mortals have to contend with. II demonstrates beyond a doubt that tbe great national debt the United States is now laboring to pay, is entirely the result of a big jamboree that Noah indulged in soon afterthe flood subsided. We suggest that Brother Warnock abandon the editorial Held and enter the divine arena. What say von, .1. ('.—Sykoston Advocate. All we have to say is that we are ready to consider a "call" from any good poul try district with a liberal salary attach ment. The ten prisoners who were arrested for creating a disturbance at Windsor, D. T., were brought before Judge Hay ward at the courthouse yesterday morn ing. Their names were as follows: Dick Adams, John Ryan, Tom Foley, R. Mcllugb, Tlios. Riley, John Kappan, Frank Burns, Mike Kennedy, ("has. Warren and another John Ryan. They all pleaded not guilty. The examination took place and the e/ideneo introduced went to show that a certain portion of the gang endeavored to get the balance of the workmen to enter a strike for higher wages. Several threats were made in re gard to cutting the telegraph wires aud other similar threats of like nature. The Judge discharged seven of the number, sentenced John Kappan to 20 days in jail for stealing bottled beer from Mr. Mans field and will dispose of Warren and Burns this morning. Klaus' Park, situated across the river in the southwest portion of the city, is fast becoming a Sunday resort for those who have no other day in the week for rocreation. The spot is a beautiful one and well adapted for a park. It was the scene of many enjoyable picnics last year, and will furnish the same advantages to our citizens this season. If a small amount of money was expended in eleariug the grounds of the many weeds tliat abound there the place would present an appear ance that many eastern cities of larger dimensions than ours would be proud to call a city park. There is as yet no near approach to the park for pedestrians, but we understand that Mr. Danner's is about to build a foot-bridge across from his place. W tried the boat business Bun day and in acting the part of a good Sa maritan we suffered and were ridiculed for our good deeds. From Wednesday's Daily. The street sprinkler started out yester day afternoon and in the evening a sprin kle of ram came down from above. Chas. T. Hills, clerk of the district court for Stuisman county, left last eve ning for Crawfordsville, lnd., on a visit to his relatives and friends in that place. The Bismarck Evening Leader is so elated over the decision of the capital case in favor of Bismarck that it has very materially increased in size and improved in excellence as a newspaper. Capital is coming into Jamestown and the upper James River valley rapidly for investment the past week or two and everything betokens lively times in the way of opening farms anil building im provements during the summer. Architect Budge is drawing the plans for the new Winslow and Bickford block On the corner of Fourth avenue and Main street, and will also superintend the building of the structure. It is to be three stories high, stone front, and the most magnificent building in the city, containing on the first floor a banking room for the North Dakota bank and two large mercantile rooms. Merrick Moore's garden in the south part of town presents a more than healthy appearancc. The onion patch is as green and thick as onions can grow The trees are flourishing in a manner which indicates a fruitful crop of every thing to recompense Merrick this fall for his untiring efforts. Harry Cornwall's granary at Eldridge is in a somewhat precarious condition on acconnt of the cellar having caved in. The building being filed with grain neces sarily makes the case worse. Now if Harry had taken the trouble to hunt up one of those marble beds that abound in that district on which to build his barn, this unfortunate circumstance would not have taken place. Tony Klaus arriyed in the city yester day from Helena, Montana, having paid a Hying visit through the west. Tony is authority on the business-like appearance of a western town and from his report our fair metropolis is busier, and making more substantial improvements than any other place on the roa I, which proves Jamestown is sustaining that reputation for steady growth and firm foundation as a permanent ana healthy city she always held. W. H. Colby, the townsite boomer| of Ypsilanti, was in the city yesterday ou a still hunt after Mayor Lloyd. He claims to have a bill against the city inasmuch as Thos. B. compelled all the tramps to leave town by his wide spread proclama tion, and four of those imposters managed to li oof it down as far as Ypsilanti on the James and steal Mr. Colby's boat from its mooring. No doubt the miscreants are enjoying a delightful picnic on their way south this fine weather. From Thursday's Daily. Contractor Robert Davidson is busy building an elevator on the south side of Danner's brewery. Lewis Dony, representative of the J. M. Brunswick, Balk & Collender Co., was in tho city yesterday on his way west to Butte City. Mr. Jake Snntli, accompanied by Mr. Vanorder, from Tarbell, were in the city yesterday and returned last evening with the collin for Mrs. Bedie Blancliard's little boy. Mi. R. M. Winslow could be seen yes terday hard at work with his coat off hoe ing down the sand in the new pen that is built, near his excavation just as easily as if it were fresh mown hay. The contractor of the Winslow & Bick ford exca^tion have made rapid and good work of the job, having completed it last evening Everything is now ready for the masons to begin and in a very short time the vacant corner will present a far different appearancc. F. E. .iones yesterday received a tele gram that $30,000 of the Insane Asylum bonds had been placed in New York and that the money would bo here in a few days. This will enable the commission ers to perfect the title to the lands pur chased of Mr. Flint and proceed rapidly with the construction of the building which is now almost ready for the first estimate. About fifty men arc at work on the foundation the massive walls of which are looming up in good shape. Herman Timm, the kind and accommo dating manager of Henry Danner's ex tensive brewery, conducted an Alert man through that immense establishment yester day morning and so thoroughly explained to him every process of manufacturing lie beverage that Bacchus loved that it. has been hard work to keep Harry from starting a similar institution of his own. Mr. Timm is one of the oldest brewers In the Northwest, having 35 years practical experience in the business, lie owns a brewery himself in Owen Sound, (Jnt., and has been in the employ of a large number of the largest brew eries in Canada and produced every kind of beer from the best Canada ale to Jamestown's celebrated Bock. A man who gayc his name as Frank Harm was arrested yesterday on a charge of stealing a gold watch and chain from a boarder in Smith's boarding house on Sixth avenue north. He was brought before Judge Hamilton and failing to produce bail he was sent to jail to await the next term of the district co rt. Upon his person was found a revolver which has since been identified by Mr. Fitz as being the same weapon that was stolen from his hardware store last Stturday evening. The thief evidently threw away the stolen watch and chain unob served when first arrested as both have since been found and are now the hands of chief Dewyre, who is awaiting the owner's return for positive identifica tion of the property. Takes it all Back. Editor Bntton, of the Steele Herald, who look us to grammatical task for using the auxiliary verb "has" in the phrase "policc headquarters has been decorated" etc., and charged us a cigar for the cor rection, it seems by ttie following, was all broke up by a curtain lecture from his wife on the subject before our rejoinder was received. The lady referred to has evidently "been to school." The Jamestown Alert is excused. Jt need not send the cigar. But we really think it mean in Warnock'to come here and consult Mrs. B. before penning his rejoinder, leastwise, our better half asked us when she had read the Herald, if we ever heard of a trapper being trap ped. Not defining her idea, she fully ex plained, and the pitli of her explanation is embodied in the Alert -article. We think this a put up job, and we hereby notify Bro. Warnock that we intend lay ing for him. We are on the war path, and nothing will satisfy ns but "blndl" Special Election. JAMESTOWN, D. n., May 20, 1884 Notice is hereby given that on Tuesday, the 10th day of June, A. D. 1884, at the Engine House in the 2nd ward of the city of Jamestown, D. T., an election will bo held for the election of an alderman, to represent the said 2nd ward in the city council of the said city of Jamestown, D. T., and to fill the unexpired term of Joan Dee, resigned. Said election will be opened at ten (10) o'clock in the morning and remain open until five (5) o'clock in the afternoon of the same day. Dated this 27tli day of May, 1884. 12t-240 JOE. D. MILLS, City Clerk. Mistaken Paternity. The Pierre Journal credits the follow ing to the Alert which is a case of entire mistaken paternity. We have read the item before but do not remember in what paper. It is not the Alert's style of re ferring to officials however much it may disapprove of their ofHcial acts. It sounds more like South Dakota anti-Ord way lingo: Hugh J. Campbell, the leader and gen eral of the anti-Ordway forces, is no less denounced in South than in North Da kota. Those who know him best say he is vindictive and still possessed of the bulldozing characteristics peculiar to him during his career in Louisiana, it is said he left that state for the slate's good, and history seems to be repeating itself in his case in Daketa to the injury of the terri tory at large, and the few good and con siderate people at Yankton who do not approve of their leader's actions. The Russell Ranch. Messrs. B. S. Russell & Sons, whose cattle ranch is located about eight tn ile northeast of the city, are probably the most successful stock raisers in Dakota. They report forty calves having been dropped since January 20th, which are all alive and doing splendidly, two of which are twins from a fine thoroughbred cow. They have also gone into the hog business which will more than likely prove as great a success as the cattle. In addition to their stock they have 1521 acres of land seeded with grain, 320 acres on section 9-141-63 CIO acres on section 13 and 25,-145-07 400 acrcs on section 7-140-fli 1G0 acres on section 35-140-C4, and 25 acres on section 25 141- 63. About two-thirds of this extensive area is seeded with the cleanest of No. 1 hard and the balance in oats. The whole crop has been put in with the greate?t of care and will undoubtedly yield the firm an enor mous profit this fall. The Russell's have been raising wheat in Stutsman county since '70 and are experienced practical farmers. Memorial Day. Says the Bismarck Tribune: There are over sixty posts of the G. A. 11. in Dakota, many of them recently established, and most of them will obserye the 30th of May in accordance with this order of Maj Thos. S. Piee, commander of the depart ment of Dakota, as follows: "The annual return of memorial day, which has been renewed for the past six teen years, will be observed by all posts and comrades, on May 30, next. Each post in its own way will arrange for the observance of the day. An invitation should be extended to comrades, the chil dren of our schools and the people gener ally to be present and participate in the ceremonies. It is earnestly desired that arrangements will be made for Memorial day services in the different churches on Sunday, May 25th, and that all comrades will attend in a body. All flags on Memo rial day should be half mast. Comrades, let us with grateful hearts aud feeling of tenderness on that day, cover the graves of our departed heroes with flowers, the emblems of our love and devotion, recal ling to memory the unknown graves of those who fell on the field of battle, died of wounds, died of diseases, wlio lan guished in prisons, and who have died since the war. Thus may be cherished the memory of their lives and deeds, re vive a deeper love for our country and the flag whose principles it represents." Cause of the Downfall. The cause of the downfall of Barnes county's treasurer is the same as in thous ands of similar cases. He had not the stamina to resist temptation, and "bor rowed" the people'smoney "justforaday or two." His speculations would be sure to return several fold long before what he had "borrowed" would be missed and he would return it with none to see what he bad done. But alas! The turn went against him, and he has not only lost all that man holds dear—his honor and his reputation—but has dragged with him innocent ones who must suffer the dis grace and financial loss. No custodian of the public funds ever was honest either in intent or purpose, who suffi red himself to yield to temptation in the use of those funds for his private or personal ends and the only way that a public servant can expect to render a true account of his stewardship is to keep intact the funds intrusted to his care. The bondsmen of a punlic servant would also serve the public interests by requiring that a full account of the funds in his hands be made, and should also insist that the money called for by that statement should be shown or properly accounted for. It is a duty they owe themselves and the public service, and also a duty the officer owes to thos? who have reposed their trust and their fortunes to his sacred keeping.—[Valley City Times. BOKN—To Mr. and Mrs. Frank Carley, of Tarbell, D. T., on May 20th a bouncing Dakota boy weighing eleven pounds. Mather and child both doing well. Tbe Insane Asylum Corner Stone. A week or so ago the trustees of the insane asylum were soliciting for sub scriptions to purchase a corner stone for the insane asylum, the appropriation that was made for the building or the specifications of the contract not having provided for any such thing. But the committee of one who undertook to solicit for the amount required met with poor success and the matter apparently drop ped. Since then there has a determina tion arisen on the part of the trustees to procure a rner stone at all hazards, aud w« are informed that Mayor Lloyd, trus tee F. E. Jones, and others have very generously made up the requisite amount and the architect has tbe stone alteady ordered from the east. Now as there is usually a certain amount ot ceremony at tending tbe occasion of laying a corner stone for such an important institution as this, it would be very appiopriate for the different societies of our city to join hands and render any assistance in their power to complete the success of the occasion. We believe the foundation will be ready by about the middle of June to receive its coronation. Arrangements for Memorial Day. So far as the various committees ami others have made arrangements for the celebration of Memorial Day the pro gramme will be substantially as follows The procession will form at tlie First National Bank corner at 1 o'clock, Fri day afternoon, May 30th, in which the old veterans, city officials, civic societies, children of the public schools and citizens are invited to join, and march to the courthouse, where the exercises of the day will be bad. The exercises at the courthouse will consist of music by the band, vocal music by the choir, reading of a poem l»y Mrs. J. M. Graham, oration by Rev. J. 11. Ilartman, and conclude with a grand old fashioned camp fire. The committee request all old soldiers of the late war, whether they wore the blue or the grey, to join in tlm exer ercises. Mayor Lloyd issues the following offi cial request for the observance of the day: JAMESTOWN, "May 2S, 1884. Since the close of the late war of the rebellion the thirtieth (30lh) day ot May of each year has been ob served as memorial day for the decora tion of soldiers' graves a fitting express ion of grateful hearts for the memory of our dend soldiers, it is requested that our public offices and buildings of the City of Jamestown be closed from ten (10) o'clock a. m. to four (4) o'clock p. in. It is also recommended that all places of business be closed from ten (10) o'clock a. m. to three (3) o'clock p. ra. on mem orial day. TIIOS. B. LLOYI, Mayor. Tho Ptnn. Bank Two Millions Short. PITTSBURG, Pa., May. 28—In the ex treraley muddled condition of the Penn sylvania Bank affairs and absence of president Riddle, the only person who holds the keys to the securities of the bank and the reticence of the directors and others, no definite conclusion can be made, but it is now taken for granted that the depositors will be fortunate if they get five per cent of the amount en trusted. This much is dnfinitely known that the concern is completely gutted. The assets are diminishing rapidly and liabilities swelling even more rapidly. Those who had call on the resources drew with an unsparing hand and little is left to tell the tale. Capitalists like Wm. Vanderbilt might make a masquerade ou the ledger for those getting aid in some unknown way of depositors' money. The shortage grows heavily as tne intricacies of book accounts are unravelled and from three hundred and fifty thousand over drawn is has grown to one million to day and the end is not yet. The books shed very little light of identity on those who despoiled the institution as the accounts are in fictitious names. The liabilities it is belieyed will reach over $2,000,000. Tbe sad bank methods date three years to the time of the oil excitement and since then has been losing steadily. Prom inent business men who are aquainted with the affairs of the bank say if it had closed its doors March the first there is doubt if depositors would have realized ten per cent. Last night after business. president W. N. Kiddle, by attorney filed a confession of judgment in favor the directors of the bank for $99,75 Judgtnen^was entered and executi mac attachment issued and put in the hauc^ of the sheriff wijfl instructions to levy upon a long list of persons, corporations and institutions as garnishees. The Pennsylvania Bank charter was purchas ed fro .11 a defunct institution and was very liberal. It provided that no stock holders or officers shall be asseesed or lia ble for any purpose whatever for any greater sum than the face of the stock held by such stockholder or officcr. I.ATKH. The deficiency still grows and this eve ning reached $1,2C0,000. Heavy defalca tions are hinted at which it is claimed will reach nearly a million. The direc tors have been in session all day and have appointed Henry Warner, ex-county com missioner, assignee of tbe bank. Many of those who made deposits on Friday threaten the bank officials with criminal proceedings for false pretense in obtain ing money. Cashier Itiebor is now undei police surveilance. Dootrovod bjr Moods. MADRID, May 28—In southeastern Spain 409 dwellings were destroyed and 514 in ured by floods.
