FOUND IN THE GRASS.
Part of the lloo«ll of the Cap tured New Sjileni Train ltob ber, lii»eovered on the Spot Where He Was Taken—Unpublish ed Details. The Man at Large One of the Expert Crooks of the Country. Train itobbera Uooilln Founil. All doubts as to the identity of the captured New Saieui tniiu robber now lyiutf iu the Fargo jail are set at rest by the discovery made by Postoffice Inspector Watkius last Sun day at the scene of the capture. It will be remetnbered that a confession wus re ported to have tuade by the man to the inspector. This was not true. What led to Mr. Watfcins recent trip and sue ceeful discoveries can only be laid to good detective work. The prisioner has been reticent anil has stolidly refused to say any thing since his capture on the 10lh of June, by the inspector aud the posse of Sheriff Hayes of Stark county, The fact of the takiug of the man is yet fresh in the minds of all, but the detuils of his capture have not yet been pub lished, for reasons best known to the officials. Briefly, the two robbers after holding up the long train, terrorizing the employees and securing their boodle in registered mail letters, tied towards the south from the scene of their daring exploit. One of them carried a shot cun from the train. They also attempted to get away with a considerable amount of specie. They made rapid progress direct for the Black Hills. The robber who is at large could not swim, while his par tner could. About thirty miles south of the railroad track they were obliged to cross one of the forks of the Cannon Ball river, a small but deep stream flow ing into the Missouri. This was entered and safely crossed by swimming their horses. Further along a creek was met, which mired the horse of the rider IT ho was himself able to swim, and who had attempted the stream first. The other robber failing to find a ford, here sepa rated from his pal who had reached the opposite bank. Each went in different directions, the man who was caught pro ceeding south and the other following up the course of Cedar Creek, which the horse could not ford and which the rider could not swim, neither could the ani mal be abandoned. The sheriff's posse followed the track of the man who went south. About 85 miles from New Salem, at 7 o'clock in the morning, he was discovered resting from his long hard ride on the bank of a small stream under some low bushes. The horse was grazing at the end of a lariat rope, the saddle on the ground. On discovery of pursuer-3 the fellow quickly threw the saddle on the horse, Hung away a bag of eighty silver dollars, a package of flour and one of bacon, and dashed Off at full speed. He was over taken and at the mouth of a Winchester made some statement, upon the strength of which the reward of $1,000 has been claimed. On his person was found a gold ring and gold watch taken from the mail sacks and only about $100in money. He was taken to the jail at Dickinson and kept there for a few days, and for greater security removed by the inspec tor to Fargo. That this was a wise pre caution may be judged from the escape of the only two prisoners at the Dickin son jail on the Fourth of July. The men had evidently divided their awag before starting, so that in ease of separation each would have his share. Inspector Watkins probably knows by tni'g time the amount they secured. The published estimate of §5,000 or 86,000 as the amount, is but the rudest guess. It is believed that the robbers got away with nearer §50,000. The registered pouch was discovered on the trail to have been burned, and noar by the shot gun was found abandoned as too cumber some to carry. Believing that part of the money at least had been concealed by the captured robber, or rathor thrown away during his short flight after discovery, Inspec tor Watkins left this city last Friday morning and, taking one assistant with him, on Sunday morning last reached the spot on the bank of the stream where they got their man. Recent rains had caused a heavy growth of grass and the wind been sweeping over the place since June 10th. But after a day's search over a space of about four acres tbe shrewdness of the inspector was re warded by finding in torn bits and ragged pieces a large amount of cur rency. One wad contained a oig bill —tfl'.liOO. Tner* were found numerous tens and twenties more or less mutilated, in prairie yrass knee high. The whole bundle bad been dropped in one place and in the robber's haste not securely hid. Coyotes or gophers had torn and separated the money and the winds had scattered it. The amount recovered the inspector will not disclose bnt it runs into the thousands. The other robber is at large yet, and is the leader. He is known as a marvellously clever cracks man, with a romantic career. He is dar ing and self-possessed, and has figured in criminal annals of the west, but never convicted. Has killed his man. The fellow in jail is also a certain murderer. Inspector Watkins leaves for Helena to night aud will then take a lay off of 30 days in Washington. rbe robbery was committed on the evening of Juue 7th, at 10 p. m., near New Salem. The time and place chosen show the work was carefully planned and the time card of the road studied to ad vantage before the attempt was made. This was done in Mandan, which place both of the cracksmen visited. One reg istered at a certain hotel shortly after inspecting at the depot the make-np of a train similar to the one they proposed to raid. Tbe other was taken sick at a hotel in that city bnt his illness was of short duration. The men had come horseback from tbe Black Hills, where they pur chased good horses, one at Spearfish and Mi /, %'S' t't* W W c*f\ 7" *vV«TF^ the other at Sturgis They intended to return to the same locality, and when it is known that a man cau ride south along the edge of the Bad Lands in the Dako ta's for many miles, even as far as Texas, without meeting a human habitation, or other evidence of civiliza tion if he cares to avoid them, it is seen their route was well chosen. Mandan is scarcely thirty miles from New Salem, the only part of the road where that par ticular train would be iu the night. West of that point as far as Miles City, Montana, the train passed ver the road in daylight, and darkness is necessary for the successfully holding up trains. DON'T KILL THE BIROS. Give the Beauties an Opportuuity to Exist Until sturbetl in their Short Dakota Summer. The last growl of the "Cynic" in the Gleudive Independent is about the bird butchers. The complaints of destruc tion by cut worms and other insects are becoming more numerous in that vicin ity and the cause is beyond doubt due to the indiscriminate shooting of harm less birds. Small snipe, larks and doves areoft6n needlessly shot by hunters, while boys who rob nests are none the less to blame. The cynic continues: Nature generally so adjusts herself that when you exterminate any bird or animal something of twofold danger comes in its stead. If we exterminate wolves we will be overrun with prairie dogs aud jack rabbits kill the birds and we are plagued by insects. If it were even possible to kill all the flies, we would die of pestilence, but laying this all aside, for God's sake and the people's sake spare the birds, one of nature's greatest blessings—beautiful to the eye heavenly to hear and indispensible to the agriculturalist. There is a law to pro tect the wanton slaughter of birds, let it be enforced. We are careful that the game law is jt violated, but the law that protects birds is of ten fold more importance. Enforce tht law and teach children at ho ue and school to appre ciate the beauty and value of birds.Even in Sunday school it might be of more cousequence to teach the children why they should not stone birds, than to try and understand how Joshua got influ ence enough to make the sun and moon stand still while he finished his battle. A writer in the Orange Judd Farmer refers as follows to what are known as good insectivorous birds, those that are to be classed among the most helpful kinds in the general warfare against in sects: Robins for cut and other earth worms. Swallows, night-hawks and pur ple martins for moth catchers. Pewees for striped cucumber bugs. Wood thrushes and wrens for cut worms. Cat birds for tent caterpillar. Meadow larks, woodpeckers and crows for wireworms. Blue-throated buntings for canker worms. Black, red-winged birds, jays, doves, pigeons and chippies—strawber ry pests. Quail for chinch bugs, locusts. Whip-poor-wills for moths. Hawks, all night birds, owls, etc., tanaeers, and black-winged summer red birds—curcu lios. There may also be mentioned the following insect pest destroyers: Nut crackers, fly catchers, chimney swifts, indigo birds, chipping and song spar rows, black birds, mocking-birds, orchard orioles. General Manager Mellon. General Manager Mellon's trip over the Jamestown A: Northern and the main line of this division resulted very satis factorily. He complimented Superin tendent McCabe ou the ship-shape con dition of the road bed and excellent work of the crews in laying new rails and putting in new ties. The company is preparing to do a big business this fall in hauling out the wheat crop and no road in the state is better able to handle a rush of grain eastward than the Northern Pacific. If the present growing crop of North Dakota is gather ed in safety it will test to the utmost the capacity of all tbe roads to meet the de mands made upon them for cars. The Northern Pacific will take care of its patrons better than any other corporation, as it is better equipped for doing so, and under the present management every ef fort is made to accommodate shippers in the pursuit of its liberal policy- general ly towards the public. General Manager Mellon is. a young man to be entrusted with such a high and responsible position, but he has reached it through sheer force of ability and industry. He is popular with the employees. A recent raise in the pay of engineers, trainmen aud switchmen was obtained through Mr. Mel lon's prompt recognition of the justice of the request. He believes in requiring good service from men and paying for such, and also in rendering tbe same to the public. Under Mr. Mellon's management the operating of one of the most extensive railroad sys tems in the United States seems enter ing upon a career of unexampled success. Richard Sykes' Arrival, Richard Sykes of Eugland, arrived from St. Paul Friday morning. He has been making bis annual trip of inspection at Larcbwood, Iowa, and is in North Da kota for the purpose of looking after his large interests here. Mr. Sykes is looking well, bis health being excellent, while his old time con fidence in tbe fnture of this state is stronger than ever. He will meet Mr. Groat of the Northern Pacific, here to morrow and go with him to Edgeley and Sykeston to inspect lands in those localities. Mr. Sykes is highly pleased with the outlook for the present year and as he will remain in tbe state for several weeks, the readers of The Alert will no doubt hear of some new enter prise or suggestion of value originating with one of North Dakota's best friends arjd most efficient advocates.

It. C. Leavitt Drops Words of Wisdom Farmers Should Hearken Unto. A Timely Hain Brings an Emi grating lft-own County anner Back. Words of Wisdom. R. C. Leavitt of Miuneapolis, one of the pioneers of the northwest and general manager of the Gull River Lumber com panv says: "You can't say too much in the papers about the benefits of sheep raising on a farm. There can't be too many sheep raised in this country.These rolling prairies are the natural grazing grounds for sheep and this pasturage now going to waste for want of stock to eat it, could fatten beef, mutton and pork enough for the whole country if en tirely utilized. In Iowa years ago farm ers got as poor as Job's turkey trying to raise wheat. They had to quit or move on. Now that they have abandoned tbe wheat crop as their principal reliance and have gone into stock, they are get ting independent and have fine farms well improved with good buildings upon them. It was the same in Southern Minnesota. Not until the farmers got into raising stock, selling butter and farm produce, did they get along. Chat tie mortgages were always lying in banks when the wheat crop was the chief in dustry. I remember a Spring Valley, Minnesota, bank that was full of chattle mortgages before farmers quit wheat and went into stock. A few years after wards those same farmers had 8100,000 on deposit in the same bank, all due to the safer business of stock raising. The Alliance Hail association has al ready adjusted and promptly settled with the following well known farmers in Stutsman and Barnes counties: Elizabeth Pannell 60 00 John H.

Unkenholz and Knight are all in the field settling losses occasioned by the storm of the seventh. Losses by this storm have been reported from Stark county on the one side and Pembina on the other. All will be closed up by the loth inst. It is safe to say that but few farmers witb good crops will neglect to take insur ance in this vicinity. |It's Different When ItKains. Ordway Johnson, the Aberdeen boomer, relates the story of a Brown county farmer who sowed 150 acres of ground to wheat this spring and who waited alone in the early part of tbe season to see the result. No rains came and tbe grain did not show up. The farmer thought he had been doing that kind of %vaiting long enough and so con cluded to linger no longer. By some mistake or accident he had a team and wagon not mortgaged and he according ly sold off what farm truck he could, hitched up and started south for Iowa. He had not gone fifty miles before a black cloud loomed up on tbe horizon, and soon a sopping big ram was falling upon the astonished immigrant, who promptly turned bis team around and started back for the farm he had abandoned. Before be got there the rain bad soaked him through and tbe wind had blown over and partly wreck ed his wagon, but he made tracks for the farm and now is watching bis crop grow into money that will let him out of difficulties and probably keep him for a permanent citizen. Mr. Johnson says thai in May, before the rains, be offered to sell his residence in Aberdeen for 82,500 and could get no buyer. Shortly after the June rainB came he refused $5,000 for the same property. All the people want to know is the fact that it does rain occasionally in this country and the land of tbe Da kotas' is good enough for them. Facts From Foster. From the Independent it is gleaned that Foster county's Fourth of July was a wide-spread and enjoyable affair. At tbe Carrington & Casey ranch Manager Palmer superintended a big celebration. A game of ball between tbe Melville clun and tbe Mule skinners was won by W.*'. Ti^ia hi^ ift-iullifi ^lfTHiir„fr Wnlliiriirrii "^T|iTi^irif nriTr^iimrt'mwr ,vr^^ CfT WflffflWPB Wheat growing in any place is nothing but speculation, the best way you can put it, and nine men out of ten who are too lazy to do anything else in the farming line will make a failure. In this country men want to work three or four months in the year and live the rest on the profits of a wheat crcn. They can't do it, and those who have not found it out to their cost already, will before long. This is a magnificent country, it will be thickly populated, and I believe become the most prosperous portion of the United States." Hail Losses Adjusted. the skinners. There was a big dance in the evening and display of Are works that was witnessed by people ftom all parts of the county. In Wells county there were horse races and dancing and a happily deliver ed Bpeech by Prof. T. S. Wadsworth of Jamestown. The Independent also con tains the following stock items: A. O. Elder informs us that he bad 2.914 pounds of wool from 385 sheep. He shipped the wool to Chicago and ex pects to trot about 20 cents a pound for it. Mr. Elder says it is just like finding money to get it raising sheep and that he has got back the original amount in vested and has 600 sheep for his work. Some strange disease has attacked the cattle that are being herded at the Hawk's Nest, Hunter & Robertson and O. G. Meacham having lost several head. From what we can learn it seems that the fore legs begin to swell up, the cat tle get stiff all over, and die in a short time. Those who have cattle there would do well to look after them and see if they can locate the origin of this strange malady. Danger From hot Winds Over. Aberdeen Republican: The latter days of June and first in July is the crtical period for the South Dakota wheat crop. This is the time the hot winds come. If the wheat is ruined by heat it is always done between June 25th and July 4tb. A period of intense heat almost invari ably follows the summer solstice—June 21st. If tbe earth is dry at this time, the radiation of h«»at is followed by south west winds that take the life out of vegetation. If there is plenty of mois ture, the free evaporation ot it prevents any great atmospbric disturbance and reduces the temperature. If the intense heat of the present week were accom panied by drouth it would mean good bye to our hopes of a good crop. As it is, with the ground saturated in our grain fields and the entire country south west of us clear to the Black Hills coveN ed with great pools and ponds of water, the grain instead of shriveling and turn ing yellow, is fairly jumping upward and taking on every day a shade of green more intense than before. Heat is life to vegetation when it is accompanied by plenty of moisture it is death only when drouth comes also. This year it will add to oar crop. "There's million* in it." Railroad Rumors. It is said that a company of "geologi cal students" who have been gathering 'specimens" west of Aberdeen, have turned out to be surveyors, and have been running railroad survey lines thick and fast. The rumors of the extension of the Milwaukee road from Eureka, its present terminus to Bismarck, are re newed. This break into the Northern Pacific land grant would mean the sub sequent extension of the Edgeley brandy in this direction. It was stated last week by a man well posted in South and North Dakota railroad projects that the Northern Pacific intended to build into Aberdeen this season, extending the Oakes line also that the steel had been purchased for the completion of the Soo grade. As the crop begins to mature and the prospect of a big yield grows into a reasonable certainty, moves on the railroad checker board are becoming ap parent. Still Finding Bones. Henry Broughton of Spiritwood, has gathered this spring seven tons of buf falo and other bones. About half of them were bones of horses, mules and cattle that have died within the last ten years on the Spiritwood farms. Tbe buffalo bones were found only fifteen miles from this place, along tfee shores of Fox lake and the chain of lakes that runs south frora Spiritwood. Early in the spring bones were easy to find, but now the grass is too high to see them and a picker would not make wages at the work. Under favorable circum stances a lively hustler can gather about 800 or 1,000 pounds in a day's work with ordinary luck. Every little slough hole and coulie still contains more or less bones. The price here is 810 a ton load ed on cars, and §18 a ton delivered in Duluth. Seed Wheat Commission Alive. A meeting of the Miller seed grain commission was called to meet in James town Friday, but owing to tbe absence from home of several of tbe members notice failed to reach them in time for them to get to Jamestown. Mr. E. P. Wells received telegrams this morning to that effect from Gov. Miller affd Com missioner of Agriculture Helgeson. On this account there will be no meeting today. Tbe commission consists of Gov. Miller, Commissioner Helgesoa, E. P. Wells and S. S. LyoA of Fargo. It is understood that the meeting will be held later on, when more accurate infor mation as to bail losses and the condition of the crops can be had in whiob to make up the assessment for those who have guaranteed tbe elevators protection from possible loss. (ikte Sowed Wheat. As the time of harvest approaches it is beginning to be seen that a consider able amount of late sowed wheat is not going to meet tbe expectations of its owners. The wheat is not asfaradvaneed as it ought to be and while growing fast now, it is feared it can not reach matur ity in time to escape the usual frost. Much of this grain is not over four, five or six inches high. It is getting late in the season. Wheat ought to be heading out pretty generally but it is not. Mining Statistics. The statistics of mines and mining for this state, to be incorporated in the eleventh census of the United States,will be collected by R. M. Tuttle of Mandan, who has been appointed to do the work. He is very desirous that the state shall be well represented in this department of mining, and any parties who have facts and information of interest, should write him at Mandan. The Ladles Delight.

The Watchfulness of Treasurer McGinnis Secures the Coun ty Over $3,200. Defective Maps Cause an Error in Computing Our Pro ltata of ltailroad Tax. College Trustees Discuss Fi nancial Questions and Deter mined to Push Things. Stir :::tin's Luck. Any one loofch..: tit the printed maps of Stutsman county will observe that it extends from range 62 on the east to range 68 inclusive on the west. This is an error. Range 69 has always been a part of Stutsman county. This error in the printing came near losing to this county $3,231.23. The Northern Pacific railroad company commenced paying taxes under the gross earnings law :n 1879,which taxes were paid to the several counties through which it passed, in proportion to the number of miles in each county, and in accordance with the number of miles as shown on the printed maps. When County Treas urer S. K. McGmnis received the first payment after he was elected from the territorial treasurer, in 1887,he discovered that Stutsman county was only getting pay for 42, miles instead of 48 miles. Mr. J.W.Raymond was then treasurer of the territory and Mr. McGinnis called his attention to the error. Mr. McGinnis on investigation disooyered that this county never had been paid on more than 42 miles from tbe year 1879 to that time, a period of eight years and request ed Mr. Raymond to refund for the back year taxes. Mr Raymond said it was 4,too late," as part of the i^oney had gone into the gen eral fund of the territory, and since the organization of Kidder county it had been receiving the tax on range 69. When Hon. John D. Lawler succeeded Mr. Raymond, Mr. McGinnis renewed this demand for the back tax, but was met with the same reply, "too late." During the term of J. M. Bailey, succes sor to Mr. Lawler, the Northern Pacific railroad paid about 8150,000 into tbe treasury of the territory, being tax for about two years. Of this amount sever a thousand dollars would be distributed to Kidder county. Mr. McGinnis again set forth the claim of Stutsman county, at the same time serving notice on Mr. Bailey not to pay Kidder county any money untii the claim was settled. He pro posed to Mr. Bailey to give him his bond with surety to indemnify him against any suit Kidder connty might bring against him for paying Stutsman county the money. Mr. Bailey con sented to this and Mr. McGin nis gave as his bondsmen W. M. Lloyd, Geo. H. Woodbury, J. J. Eddy and J. A. Buchanan. Thereupon in June 1889, Mr. Bailey gave to Mr. Mc Ginnis,as treasurer. $2808.10, the amount erroneously paid Kidder county from 1881 to 1886. There yet remained 8423.13 due to Stutsman county which bad been retained the territorial treasury for years 1879 and 1880, before the organiza tion of Kidder county. This amount was in cours of adjustment when the territory was divided. The claim was passed to the joint commission for the adjustment of claims at Bismarck, May 24th, lost and rejected. Mr. McGinnis then renewed the claim through Mr. Hayden, the present public examiner, at the meeting the commis sion at Sioux Falls on JuaelOth. To day a warrant was received for 8423.13, making ia all $3,231.23, which Stutsman county came near losing by an error of the printer. College Trustees Meet. Tbe trustees of Jamestown college held a meeting Thursday and reviewed the financial condition of the institution. Messrs. C. P. Smith, H. B.Allen and Wm. M. Lloyd were the only .members of the board present. Dr. Ganse of Chicago, secretary of the Presbyterian board of aid for colleges, was present and gave the trustees much encouragement. He said the board of aid appreciated the condi tion of affairs in Dakota and would ren der substantial assistance to Jamestown college. In fact, he made a liberal prop osition to help lift the floating debt of the institution. President Mendenhall writes the board from Philadelphia that he will be home sometime about tbe last of this month. When he arrives another meeting will be held and arrangements made for tbe opening of the next year, the corps of instructors engaged, etc., etc. It is understood that the board in tends to soon put a man in the field with tbe object of working up a larger at tendance for next year. If such is done it is believed that the school year will open next September with an enroll ment of at least 75. McCormick binders, Daisy buggies and Rushford wagons at Kirk, Allen & Hathorn's.
