CBDBTI SEAT MITTBHSV
The people of Sleepy Eye nave*about
completed the undertaking of circulat
ing a petition for the removal ofChe
County Seat of Brown County from
New Ulm to Sleepy Eye, and they
claim that they have secured a suffi
cient number of signers to compell the
commissioners to proeeed in the matter.
They nave had a fair show, no attempt
was made to interfere.
Now comes New UimTs turn, a peti
tion of remonstrance being circulated,
and we are free to sav that when the
work has been completed, the voters
of Brown County wdi have manifested
their objections to vote on the remov
al proposition at this time.
We have learned from a number of
parties that have signed the Sleepy Eve
petition taat heir signatures were se
cured by misrepresentation. Some
were told that Sleepy Eye has §30,000
in the banks of St. Paul and that the
amount would be turned over,' to the
commissioners as soon as the seat was
declared removed,and that New Ulm
would never pay the $10,000 offered.
The facts are that the $10,000 of New
Ulm are already in the hands of the
County Treasurer, while Sleepy Eye's
$30,000 are in bonds, which may or
may not be realized, as there area hun
dred ways of preventing it But even
if the bonds could be floated, the offer
of New Ulm will, as shown our last
issue, more than balance Sleepy Eye's
Another mode of securing signatures
has been the claim that Brown County
has no title in the Court House square
this question has been finally settled by
Judge Severance's decisions which read
••irom the showing made the county
of Brown may rightfully erect a court
house and maintain it on Block 106
mentioned in the complaint where the
county buildings of the county have
been for more than twenty years'*.
(In order for temporary injunction, de
cision of Oct. 8th~ 1887.)
„That the county of Brown has good
right to erect and maintain a conrthouse
on said Block 106. situated the city
of New Ulm aforesaid, when it ha3
funds thttt can be legally applied to
such purpose, and has good right and
title to said Block for such purpose."
(Decision of April 9th. 1888.)
Besides these decisions the city of
New Ulm had quit-claimed due form
of law all its rights, title and interest
in the same to the county so that the
latter has now a perfect title in the
premises The quit claim deed is on file
in the Auditor's office and recorded in
Book 32 of Deeds page 479
The main inducement to capture sig
natures has however been to ask the
people to only sign the petition, to
make New Ulm come to time, as Sleepy
Eye was not at all anxious to get the
County Seat, while fact this was the
only issue Sleepy Eye has worked to
secure the County Seat for years
and has only been waiting to get
strong enough to realize the project.
The commencing of the new court
house threatened to interfere with said
project and hence the kicking
Sleepy Eye wants the County Seat
and all other talk to the contrary is
The old story that there was no ne
cessity of building a new court house
because the old one was good enough
to last another fifty years, will have no
bearing on the fair minded voters of the
County. Judge Severance, before
rendering his decision, inspected the'
old shell personally and expressed
his surprise at the time that the people
of so wealthy and prosperous a county
as Brown could oppose the measure.
Here is the Judge's finding on that
"That tne said County of Brown
constructed County offices and build
ings as in the complaint aliedged
that all of said buddings are old. delap
idated, defective, and in size and con
struction wholly insufficient for the pur
poses and cannot be repaired so as to
answer the purposes of said countv for
county buildings. That it is necessary
and the interest of said county demand
that it should ereefc anew court house
in and for the use of said countv and to
contain ail the county offices for said
county and that §35,000 will be reason
ab cost of the same."
(Decision of April 9th, 1888.)
A great number have signed the
Sleepy Eye petition because they were
asked to do so in order to give the for
mer a chance to have a vote taken on
the qnestion. Did these parties stop to
think that an election would cost the
Count* several thousand dollars? and
that such an election would create an
unusual amount of excitement and
cause bitterness and hard feeling be
tween the good relations of the voters
of the count}, especially when the de
feat of the undertaking is admitted?
We are satisfied when all these

points are carefully considered that
hundreds of those that signed their
names to the petition for removal will
have it taken off and that they will sign

A bus team at Mankato ran away

There is a possibility that Bulow, the
Little Falls murderer, may yet escape
the gallows. His lawyers have a plan
which bids fair to save his neck, though
imprisonment for life will be the alter
native- In his trial he was allowed to
plead guilty of murder in the first de
gree, when the law provides that a plea
of guilty cannot be accepted for any
greater offense than murder the sec
ond degree. We believe he is receiving
the worse punishment in a life sentence
to imprisonment but it is a strange law
that prevents a man from pleading
guilty to an offense he knows he is
Henry Cabot Lodge, in his "Life of
Washington," makes this pungent re
mark: "There are people to-day, not
many, luckily, whose families have been
here for 250 years, and who are as ut
terly un-American as it is possible toe
while there are others, whose fathers
were immigrants, who are as intensely
American as any one can desire or im
agine." The truth ought to penetrate
the thick skulls of the "America for
Americans" shouters who are periodic
ally getting up a secret society designed
to do away once and forever with for
eigners. Who is an American? Any
honest man who comes here for a per
manent home, who leaves behind him
all old world politics and prejudices
who adapts himself to the customs of
the new world and loyally works to
maintain and! uphold the republic
What does it matter whether he was
born in Sweden or Scotland or Germanv
or Ireland or anything else? The im

from, but what he is and what he pro

Anglomanie dudes. And good men
make good Americans* And good men
are born under many skies.—EVENXHG.
Among- hopeful Jsigns in the South

growth of the savings bank sysstem.
Until 1886 Maryland aras the only State
which had a bank that was exclusively
a savings institution. In 1887 North
Carolina was added to the list, and the
next year South Carolina- Georgia and
Louisiana, these four reporting over
23,000 depositors and nearly $6,000,000
in deposits Each year adds new States
to the list, and it will not belong before
the people will look back with amaze
