CITY AND VICINITY. From Saturda^toily. Barney Darling was arreted by Sheriff Eddy this morning, and arraigned before Justice Bigelow on the charge of aiding and abetting the escape of Owen Har graves, a prisoner who slipped away from Deputy Miner the other day .The prelimin ary bearing developed that Darling drove the rig which earned Hargraves out of the city, and he was held to the district court in the sum of $1,000. In default of bail, Darling was committed to the county jail. The offense charged is a pretty serious one, and if proven will probably result in the defendant serving a term of years at Bismarck. Hargraves has not yet been recaptured. The remainder of the personal proper ty belonging to the Botsf jrd estate was «old this afternoon, except some articles which Auctioneer Cornwall refused to dispose of at the low prices offered. Seven Deeriog binders were sold, at figures ranging from 970 down to 821.50. They were purchased by John S. John eon, J. Wikey, P. Smith, R. Gainafortb, F. Wilkius,. Osmer Burleson and F. Hauser. A grain box was knocked down to Pat Moran for 812.25. Two complete threshing outfits were reserved for a time, the best bid for one of.the engines being but 8500. There was a large at tendance of farmers at the sale, whioh was being continued late this afternoon. Judge Nickeus afhisted Harry Cornwall in looking after the interests of the estate, in the absence' of the executor, H. M. Taber. John Eager is attending to business again after a pleasant visit of several weeks in Chicago, and at his old Illinffs home near that city. He returned last night.* Mrs. Eager is reported improving in health and will return home in a couple of weeks. Mr. Eager spent eight or nine days at the World's fair, and like everybody else who has visited the White City, is enthusiastic over its wonderful attractions. He says the ex pense on the grounds is not nearly as great as many persons think, and with a reduction of railroad fares the exposition can be reached at a comparatively slight cost. Crops in Illinois are reported good, but the same business depression exists as here. Thousands of men are being thrown out of employment daily, and every train brings crowds of miners from the west to Chicago, and other cities to swell the multitude. It is impossible for them to find work, and the situation is indeed growing serious. From Monday's Daily. Sheriff Eddy started his binders to work this morning on his farm. A prairie fire has been burning for sev eral nights in the hills west of the city. A new crossing is being put in on Front street, at the intersection of Third avenue, north. Down in Fargo, recently, a prisoner paralyzed the court by asking for a -change of Venus. August Kubn has placed his 3-year-old filly, Queen, in the hands of J. F.

The daily range is from 25 to 30 degrees and anything greater than that rare at this time. Miss Margie Wells has returned home, after spending a portion of her college vacation at the World's fair and with Minneapolis friends. Stewart Wells also arrived from a World's fair trip. The Capital says The Alert editor was worked by a spotter and took "bracers" with him in several of the late blind pigs. This is such a clumsy false hood, known to so many people, that it is hardly worth refuting. A. J. Smith went north to Carrington to look after his farming interests lo cated in that vicinity. Mr. Smith tbiaks that harvest will be a little later there than here, owing to the isoreased moisture which the grain received. A good yield is expected. Saturday evening, Mrs. D. E. Mc Laughlin, accompanied by ber son, Louis Flint, and Mn. Julia Wing, left for an extended trip on the Pacifio coast cover ing a period of four or five weeks.

Judd and wife and John Latta and wife returned tbis morning from Jackson Park. "The exhibit is all there," said Mr. Judd. "The attendance is not what was expected or what it should be. I saw a great deal in the way of photography that interested me. A small camera is allowed visitors, to take snap shots, for a fee of $2 a day." Judge Morgan of Devils Lake received by express Monday a handsome gold headed cane. It was a present from the bar and court officers of Walsh county, who took this method of showing their appreciation of the judge's many good qualities as evinced during the recent term of court held in that county. The cane was appropriately inscribed. The judge was greatly pleased with the gift. The Minneapolis journal pertinently says: "Every depositor who withdraws from a bank money that he does not need retires just that much from circula. tion and to that extent contributes to the stringency which depresses the valne of his property, cuts down bis wages and adds to the general depression. The place for the money is in the banks where it can be used in the business of the country. Saturday evening, at 9:45, John A Peterson passed quietly away at the asy lum of consumption. He was abont 35 years of age. Interment took place at 2 p. m. today, in Highland Home ceme tery, under the charge of the Mauons of this city, of whom he was an honored and respected member. Rev. J. D. Whitelaw conducted a short ser vice at the asylum. In April last the deceased returned from a winter trip to Jacksonville, Fla., to which place he bad gone in an endeavor to regain his lost health.

Atchison Bros, of Britton, South Da kota, who were in the city yesterday with a couple of oar loads of horses, report the crop outlook not very bright in the north ern portion of that state. Mr. George Atchison says about half the usual wheat yield will be harvested, but this will fur nish bread and supplies for winter, af ford seed for next season, and probably enable farmers to meet their interest on notes. Marshall county settlers are gen erally in good shape. Notwithstanding the poor prospects for tbis year, and the unusual business depression, Mr. Atchi says land values are holding up well and he finds little difficulty in trading farms in the Dakotas to Iowa, Nebraska and Montaua parties for horses. The de mand for horses has been good for some time, but tLe market is reported dull at present. Bank Examiner Thorne of Hastings, Minn., arrived yesterday to turn over the affairs of the Lloyd's National to Judge Rose who was appointed examiner and given full authority by the comptroller. In making this appointment Mr. Eckels said he was (pleased to do so, on the grounds of the office seeking the man, not the man the office, Judge Rose having stated that he went to Washing ton in the interests of all concerned and not to seek a position. As Mr. Thorne has made a full report of the affairs of the bank, there is little to do except to look after collections, pending the further desire of the comptroller. Mr. Thorne is considered one of the best ex* aminers in the service of the department and he has been placed in charge of the big German-American bank at St. Paul that failed last week.

Monday's Atlantic mail, due at 4:40 s. m. did not arrive notil 9:40 last night. It was run- as a speoial in oharge of Con ductor Slrian as it was more than 12 hours behind tfie schedule. The ^aoifio express was two hours late this morning owiog to a hot box which delayed the train more or less nearly all this way out from St. Paul. An extra stop was made at Fargo, Spiritwood and this city to remedy the evil. There was a meeting of a number of the depositors of Lloyds bank today and a committee appointed, consisting of Messrs. Haight, Fanoher, Roper,.Casey and Huntington, to consider plans in the interest of the creditors. Nothing fur ther was done. The governor's party, whioh had in tended to remain another week, sud denly changed theif intention and broke camp yesterday.

The morning tram today brought in two car loads, packed, of harvest hands from the east, all eager to get work at 82 per day. There was a big prairie fire yesterday near Mandan and the town was covered with smoke and dust. A great maDy of the merchants and railroad men went out to the scene of the fire to fight the flames. The wind was strong and the fire traveled very fast. It is reported that most of the stock range between the Heart and the Cannon Ball rivers has been destroyed. The fire also worked north of the railroad track and it is sup posed burned out a good many farmers. E. T. Kearney with a bundle of whips in one band and a can of machine oil in another said yesterday: Yes this hot wind will hurt wheat. How can it help it? I have been looking for harvest hands today for we begin cutting tomor row. Hands want $2 a day and board I offered $1.50 a day, and it's all I'll pay. With an average of five bushels in the county, at the present price, a harvest band wants for a day's work abont all a farmer will get for an acre of wheat. These men refuse work and then go hogging for a meal. Their guts will play tag a long time before I feed a man who wont work for 81.50 a day and board. An opportunity for discussion arose as to the correct measurement of the race track at the fair grounds. The proper place for the measurement to be taken is three feet from the pole, as the ex treme inner portion of the traokiscalled This is the position which a horse would occupy when taking the pole which the winner usually does and which makes the "record" for the half or mile which ever the course may be. Each outside horse travels a correspondingly and pro portionately greater distance. There fore the measurement of the track five feet from the pole instead of three feet, ought to show a greater error than two feet. The diameter of the curves at the track are 573 feet it is understood, and the circumference 1,800 feet in length, leaving 420 feet of straight track on each side, Now, if that measurement was taken accurately—an approximate was only intended—the extra length would be 12.56 feet or 10.5 more than was meas ured. A slight error in the measure ment of the circumference of the wheel with which the measurement of the track was made would make a cumulative error which would account for a large part of this 10.5 feet, From Wednesday's Daily. Born—To Mr. and Mrs. Steve Ross, on Aug. 7th, a daughter. Choke cherries are in season again and the small boy is after them. Wm. E. Fletcher returned last night from a trip to Jackson Park.

Soliday: The state bank exam iner has made an examination of the Carrington bauk, and submitted his re port to the governor.

Matthew Bennett: I would have had "bushels" of fruit this year on my gooseberry bushes if it had not been for an "inch" worm which nearly stripped them. Have two varieties of gooseberry and of course the best suffered most. Prairie fires in the western portion of the state are doing considerable damage, both to pasturage, hay lands and grain.

It is learned that the wife of August Albrecht, a well known farmer living north of Spiritwood lake, had a narrow escape from death last Sunday. She went to the cattle corral and was sud denly attacked by a savage bull and tossed on his boms until unconscious Fortunately hei» husband rescued her from the animal before she was seriously gored. She has been prostrated since with fright and bruises. One of the good deeds done by the city officers this year is the cleaning of the main thoroughfares of the small stones which have worked to the surface of the roadway. In many places travel has made detours to avoid such places or else gone bumping through at the expense of vehicles and the temper, few men have earned honest meals and the difficulty remedied at a small ex pense. Hardly a driver passes these places without thinking of the bumps which heretofore marked the localities. Last night tbe city police headed east the eight men caught bathing inside of the city limits and fold them to "git" and it was seen that they got. The mar shall has a volunteer force of about fif teen, who are in instant readiness at any time of the day, to assist all 'bums' out of the confines of Jamestown. Any man who is willing to work and shows a dis position to take 'anything which will bring in some remuneration, instead of laying around, will not be molested, but will be assisted to find employment, otherwise there will be little comfort for him here. G. W. Perry: I have been traveling for some time for a large St. Paul grocery house, and have made the best of the North Dakota towns regularly. Country merchants are beginning to see that the cash system [is their only salvation, and farmers are learning to buy less of what can be raised oa their farms, and buy what they can better afford. Competi tion is strong in the state, and this has led to a heavy credit system. It has sur prised several merchants in this part of the state, who recently adopted the cash system, to see how much money the farmers can get when obliged tc pay cash. No one knows where it comes from—but it comes. Railroad Notations. From Thursday's Daily. The difficulty of getting east bound sleepers is now occasionally experienced.

World's Fair Dates and Figures. Following are some dates and figures in connection with the World's Fair that may prove interesting: On Feb ruary 24th, 1890, Chicago was selected as the site of the Fair by the National House of Representatives. The first balloi was: Chicago, 115 New York. 72 St. Louis, 61 Washington, 56. The eighth and final ballot stood: Chicago, 157 New York, 107 St. Louis, 26 Wash ington, 18.
