Cincinnati Euriulrcr, December 20th. . V. H. Harris, of Now York (Jity, in ventor of gas-making machinea and developer of land schemes and corpora tions, whoso Bonsational arrest took place in this city on a bench warrant iBaued at Now York charging him with being a fugitivo from justice, will this morning walk from tho county jail a free man. Thus ends a case which, during its run, attracted attention throughout tho East and West. The documont releasing Harris was received last evening by Sheriff Archi bald. It came as a telegram from Gov ernor McKinloy and reads as follows: Columbus, Ohio, December 28, 1891. 7b the Sheriff of Hamilton County, Cincinnati, Ohio: This day, upon request of tho Governor of New York, I hereby revoke tho warrant hereto fore Issued by me for tho arrest of W. H. Harris, ' and tho delivery of said Harris to Philip Rcllly, the agent of tho State of New York, tho said warrant having been Issued by mo December 19, 1891. You will return said warrant to me without delay, and acknowledge receipt of this dispatch. William MoKinley." Following tho above came another telegram which read : "Get answer or reason, ours to-night to Sheriff of Hamilton County." To this ShoriQ Archibald replied: "Yours received, will execute warrant as requested. Robert M. Archibald, Sheriff of Hamilton County." From the above it is plain to bo seen that tho New York prosecutors of Harris have failed to make out a case against him, and are now anxious to take their hands off. Of Harris it may be said that ho has all along protested his innocence of any wrong-doing, and would be able at the proper time to so declare himself pub licly. The arrest of Harris in this city, about two weeks 'ago, was at tho instance of Charles Blandtn, of New York, a stock holder in the Natural Gas and Iron Com pany of Now Jersey, which is tho lessee of the American Gas Company, whoso headquarters are at Washington, D. C. Of tho latter company J. N. Huston, ex-Treasurer of the United States, was President and a heavy stockholder. Pre vious to Harris's connection with tho above company he was tho owner of a fuel gas plant at Maysville, Ky., and was at the same time connected with a num ber of land schemes, including a coal and coke concern in West Virginia. Nearly all of the above ventures proved disastrous to the stockholders, by reason of which largo sums of money were lost. Through them all, however, nothing of a criminal nature was over proved against Harris. The causes leading up to tho ar rest of Harris in this city arose chiefly through tho inability of the stockholders in tho latest scheme to realize any profit on their investment. Harris had strenuously contended that this was no fault of his, but tho stock holders wore still dissatisfied, and tho result was an investigation. Upon tho testimony of Blandin and others an indictment was found, and, Harris being absent from tho State of New York, a warrant charging him with being a fugitivo from justico was issued. He was arrested in this city in a house on Eighth street, near Vino, upon infor mation furnished by tho police of New York. At tho time ho was seriously ill, and his removal to New York was im possible. However, a requisition was is sued on Governor McKinloy, and Ser geant Detective Phil Reilly sent hero to bring him back. A few days ago, upon orders of Colonel Doitsch, he was re moved to tho county jail and placed un der tho care of tho sheriff. At 0 o'clock this morning ho will bo released, Previous to departing from tho jail Harris was seen by an Enquirer reporter, and said : " This persecution and prose cution will result in nothing but money to me. Tho conspiracy to securo tho patents I own fell through, as you see, and now my operations in tho courts will begin. Several Cincinnati people will be sued, as well as porsons in other places. I am all right, and have at all times been able to provo my innocence, and am going to do it." I 4 The Modern Mother.

MONEY IN POTATOES. Tho Pittsburg Dispatch Gives Some Figures That Will Prove of In terest to Farmers. The Pittsburg Dispatch relates an in stance of the profit of potato growing. Tho crop was from a 160 acre farm, and more than one-third of which was planted with potatoes. Three months after plant ing, the fanner had filled a contract for 12,000 bushels of potatoes at sixty cents a bushel, and had $7,200 in the bank. Another farmer raised 5,000 bushels on twenty acres, or over 250 bushels per acre, and received $3,000 for the crop. These yields are exceptionally largo, though not beyond the range of possibility on good potato land in a good reason. There is a farm near Moravia, Cayugo County, adds tho Dispatch, which the owner permitted his son-in-law to occupy for twenty years fieo of rent. The shift less occupant was then obliged to leave because he could not mako a living upon it. Then tho owner sold it to an Irish farmer, who had raised potatoes in his native country. It was a largo farm near the village and the price was high, but in three years ho had it clear of debt. Twenty acres in wheat would produce from 400 to 500 bushels, now worth about sixty cents a bushel. The owner of a good potato crop has a reasonable chanco of prosperity, oven in these times of ag ricultural depression. It is a queer fact, however, that thero .aro very few years in which American farmers raiso enough potatoes.to go around, and that car-loads havo to bo imported. Oomic Opera To-night. Tho Robinson Comic Opera Company consisting of twenty-five people arrived from Ironton to-day and will present ' La Mascotto " at the opera house to-night. All who love light and jingling music, clean comedy, artistic dancing and mag nificent costumes should attend. The Robinsons come to Maysvillo with a splendid reputation. They played in Chillicothe and Ironton to largo and de lighted audiences and no doubt will do tho samo hero, as tho prices are so reason able that all can attend. A woodsman does not expend a few powerful blows upon n mighty tree and then stop, expecting the majestic forest monarch to fall ; nor does a wise mer chant send forth a few tids. and then cease, expecting business and a fortuno to como without further effort. Keep ovorlastingly at it. If yours is tho only store in tho place, advortiso to keep people alivo to tho ne cessity of buying; also to compote with tho people who haven't stores in your town, but who find a way to get tho trade that ought to.bo yours.

Tho enterprising minister stipulated that he should perform tho coromony, and thon brought forward Mr. Joseph Beasloy, a prosperous farmer of Henry County.
