To the Friends ot the "Trans
cript.**
The people of Mower County are just
upon the cvo of one of the most import
ant political campaigns that has ever
transpired in this scction. The question,
whether the present ruling dynasty, to
aupnort which, the scanty earnings and
little property of hardworking faroi^i-g
sad mechanics arc depicted an'i deci
mated by the constant demands of un
just and enormous taxation, shall be
unstained, continued and perhaps per
petuated, is to be decided. This is a
question of no small importance. It
•fleets the growth and development of
the county, it touches the interests of
every citizen. It comes to the home of
every family anu asks in behalf the
scantily clad, self sacrificing parents and
growing, needy children, if the money
which they need and which in all jus
tice belongs to them, shall continue to
be used to gorge tho pockets of a band
of men united by an iron clad oath, to
stand by and sustain each other in their
wicked plundering of the treasury.
The TRANSCRIPT is the first and
only paper, that has ever had the moral
courage to utter the truth with reference
to the management of county matters.
If the people know more -to-day, of the
true condition of affairs, 'than they did
one year ago, they are indebted to this
paper for it. Others have stifled their
convictions, and withheld their utter
ances through fear of loss of patronage,
but in their inmost souls they have
known that what we have said was true.
Every day we are more and more con
vinced of the nobleness of the work in
which ws are engaged. The best
friends of the country are in sympathy
with us, and the people whose rights
we defend are daily rallying to our
support. With the consciousness of
doing right, we shall push forward with
the work we have undertaken, in the
full faith that sooner or later the princi
ples we maintain will be triumphant.
We have been liberally supported,
even better than we dared to expect
bit we still need the aid of friends. The
TRANSCRIPT should be in the hands of
•very voter in Mower County for the
next six months No man can afford to
be without it. If every patron will
urge this fact upon his neighbor, the
and can be accomplished. We also need
money, our expenditures are not light,
and must be met. Many of our sub
scribers are in arrears to all such, we
make this offer. If you will pay up
within the next three weeks, we will
make a deduction of twentyfive per cent,
from your bill. With a little effort you
ean raise the small amount due. To
new Bubscrbers who will pay in ad
vance, we offer the same deduction.—
This makes the TRANSCRIPT the cheap
est, as it is already' the largest and best
paper in this section of the State.
trust that this appeal to the friends of
the piper and the cause, will not be un
heeded.
Disgraceful Proceedings df a
Reform Board.
If a stranger from a well governed
Eastern city had accidentally dropped in
upon us last week, and in his ignorance
of what he was about to do, had taken
up a copy of the little crumb picking
Register which ekva out a miserable ex
istence by devouring what belongs to
the people and puffing those who steal,
nnd iced it,his curiosity might for a mo
ment have b.'en aroused aa well as grati
fied by perusing the ludicous report of
the proceedings of our common council
Tho first point that would probably
have struck him as anomolous, is the
range of powers exercised by this dig
nified body. He would learn that they
are not only the conservator* of public
peace and public morals, they not only
look after streets, sidewalks, and sewers
what men drink and what games they
play, but they assume tho functions of
regulating the internal affairs of private
families, they invest themselves with
the powers of surrogate courts and as
sume the guardianship of unfortunate
ohiMren who happen to have been born
with a modicum less brains than the ru
lers themselves.
The stranger above spoken of, would
•read among other interesting matters,
detailed in the proceedings of said board
»od paid for at the rate of seventy-five
ceutB per hundred words,that a commit
tee was appointed to wait upon "Mr.
.— and request him to keep his
idiotic child out of the street." Wc
forbear giving tho name in sympnthy
for the wounded feelings of the unfor
tunate family, whose misfortunes have
thus been paraded bef' i'e the public
It is a question whether tho pitiable
»bild referred to, iu its unguided wan
derings in tho opcu air and incoherent
utterances for the lack of mind which
«i.ldtd uot see fit to givo, does not
i:i:inil^Ht nioro sense after all, than the
•y.J'j hearted, officious,meddlesome men.
who,because thoy, forsooth, are the acci
dental incuuibants of the petty offico of
village aldermen, assume the right to
obtrude their disgusting presence upon
the sanctity of private households and
drag their misfortunes before tho world
and publish theut in a uewspapcr.
The Sioux Indians, the inhabitants
of the South Sea Islands, the Patairo
O
niaus and every other barbarous race on
tho face of the globe, pity tho weak, the
cripplad, the weak minded and unfortu
nate, aid and protect them from the
gazo of the world, and at every oppor
tune moment throw the mantle of, even
savage charity over the ills for which
the imbecile arc not responsible but
the common council of Austin, with less
reasonless sympathy than tho savage,
with puffed up self-assurance, drive the
poisoned arrows of afliction deeper into
the hearts of the unfortunate, merely to
"show their mighty power."
City Courts.
The dispensers of justice in our village
aro just now doing a lively business.
The disposition manifested by the spe
cial police, to arrest every man who
walks a little crooked, or speaks above
a whisper, fills the criminal oourt with
a succession of c'.Ses of so trifling a
character, that aig Honor's docket is a
regular Dogberry affair. Full one half
the perrons arraigned, have been guilty
°f Po offence, but from two to ten dol
lars cost is made to the city
.and the bogus
officials who go through the disreputa
ble performance of pulling men up,
get their dollar. By the way, this
premium offered for arreBts is entirely
illegal, and could not under any cir
cumstances be collected. More than
this, the posse of specials whom the
irate fathers have furnished with clubs,
have no authority under the law, and
lay themselves liable every time they
lay hands upon a man.
In the race for civil patronage, Esq.,
Mc lentic is decidcdly ahead of his
illustrious competitor E«j. Mandcville,
and his dockct is full of cases. He
presides over his court with dignity and
ability, is a man in his proper and legal
place should do. It is now pretty gen
erally couceded that the man whom the
people elected is the legal justice.—
We had supposed that the judgment
of the city fathers on this point was
fixed aa irrevocable aa the eternal hills,
rat it seems that tlisy too entertain
doubts as to their wicked action in at
tempting override the choice, of the
people and are going to have their con
duct investigated. We admire their
humility in undergoing this self ex
amination and in the mean time re
commend a diet of bread and water.
A Democratic Fooler.
The Democrat of this week is out
with a column article, devoted to coun
ty politics. The writer charges the
county officers with"corruption,""appro
priating the funds of the people to
their own use," "growing rich at pub
lic expense," "debauching the public
morale," in fact, the whole catalogue of
crimes that men can commit in office are
brought to the doors of our officials.—
All the charges made by the TRANS
CRIPT during the last yetr, against
these same men, are endorsed and boiled
down into a single column.
It will be remembered that the Dem
ocrat, last fall, upheld these officials,
and branded these same eharges when
made by us, as false. What influences
have been used to bring about this re
pentance, or whether it is genuine, wo
do not know. We would like to be
lieve that friend Wood begins to see
things as they really are, but Democrat
ic editors are never responsible for any
position which they assame, and wc
hear it intimated that this is a feeler
after loaves and fishes.
A Betorna Frolie.
Saturday Evening last was the scene
of another of those disgraceful rows that
are so common under our present imbe
cile city government. But as the se-1
quel shows, the city powers were most
fault and the fittest subjects for the
lockup. It seems that a good natured
Norwegian had been indulging a little
too freely in eye-water, and by some mis
hap got his fingers shut into a crack of
the back door to a saloon on Mill St.
Tho giddy gentleman was thus held
until released by tho inmates, when he
rolled upon the ground and roared lustily
from severe pain. The noise attracted
the attention of the omnipresent Mayor
and his pos3e, who taking it for granted
there could be no noise without crime,
started tlic injured man towards the
jail instead of the Surgeon's where lie
ought to have been taken. The suffer
ing man naturally protested against
such unjust proceedings and offered re
sistance as he had a right to do, at
which the bystanders say he was severe
ly maltreated by an over officious po
liceman- Suffice it to say he had the
sympathies of all who saw tho transact
ion and the universal judgment was
that he was less drunk than those who
had him in charge.
Banawaj.
On Saturday last, a frightful runaway
occurred in this village. H. A. Brown
Esq., af Brownsdale, drove up to the
Durham house, with his fine, spirited
span of horses, attached to a three-hun
dred dollar covered buggy. Leaving
the team for a moment to call the ostler
both horses took fright, and dashed
down Water Street at a furious rate,
Arriving opposite the lumber yard of
Crooker Brothers & Lamoreaux, they
suddenly turned towards the piles of
lumber with such ppeed,that the result
could hardlyfail of being most distastrous.
Tho buggy was torn to pieces, and one
of the horses broke a leg. No blame
attaches to any one, but the accident
should be a lesson to those who are in
the habit of leaving horses in the streot
without being hitched.

Dividing up.
Wc learn that E. ]i. Crar.c Esq.. lias
resigned tho civil part of his justiceship
in favor of the Croat Reformer. We
have heard of hair splitting but never
before heard of splitting an office and
resigning half of it.

Farewell Visit,
The Methodists -helil an ice»Cream en
tertainment, and farewell visit for Rev.
Nelson at their church, last Thursday
evening. It was a pleasant re-union
and well attended. Tho proceeds
amounted to about $25, which we un
derstand were (transferred to the pocket
of the departing friend and pastor.
Arrest Kim.
We noticed tho reat Reformer break
'•jg holes in the sidewalk that has just
been laid on St. Paul Street. This is
prohibited by ordinance and why not
arrest him. Perhaps a Reform Alder
man is a privileged character, and not
subjcct to either moral or State laws.
Harvest.
Nearly all tho mechanics will leave town
next week to work in tho harvest fields.
This is right. Builders can well afford
to wait for .tlio grain to be harvested.
The weather continues delightful and
nothing but the powers of the great
Eclipse can destroy the expectations of
the most sanguine.
W hear it intimated that his Honor
the Mayor with some two or three of his
accomplices, tore up a sidewalk last
Saturday Evening, in orJer to bring
an accusation against the owners of the
lot opposite. This .corresponds well
with other performances of the city au
thorities.
Dishwater Spreading.
The Register last week sprinkled a
column of dishwater over the respecta
ble people of Lansing. They say they
can stand a?most any amount of abuse,
but to be washed down with the nauseous
dilutions of that sheet, is more than
their good nature can endure.
Life of St. Panl.
We were shown, by Messrs Webb &
Sleeper, Agents, a ueatly bound and
very interesting book with the above
title by the Rev'ds Conybeare, Howson
and Bacon. This must now be consid
ered as the standard work on the sub
ject. It merits high praise for its thor
ough research,am pie and beautiful illus
trations, and excellent spirit. Those
desiring this truly useful and interest
ing book, should leave their orders
with the above named agents.
Ing Bel
Mr. W. C. Hooker, recently from
New York, an eminent and successful
instructor of the Spcncerian System of
Penmanship, proposes to give a course
of twelve lessons, in this city, commen
cing Monday Evening next. Mr Hooker
has occupied positions in some of the
best Institutions^ in the East, and brings
with him high testimonials of ability
and success. We hope that a large
number of our young people will avail
themselves of this opportunity to be
come accomplished in this most useful
of all arts. Mr. Hooker will call upon
most of the families of the place during
the next three days and make arrange
ments for his class.
The Eclipse.
Next Saturday the 7th inst., the most
important Astronomical event of the
present decade will take place. The
Moon will pass between the Earth and
theSun,entirelyobscuring the latter from
a portion of North America. The belt of
total obscuration will be about 150 miles
wide, the center line of which passes
from the Pacifio Coast at about 50°
north latitude, South Easterly across
tho Continent striking tho Atlantic on
the coast of North Carolina. This cen
ter line passes through Iowa near Sioux
City. The Eclipse will not be total
here, but nearly so about 4 o'clock
P. M. at which time every man, woman
and child should be looking at it
through a smoked class.
Who says Owatonna is Dead.
From what we observed there, and
learned from Mr. Lewis Lord, Dr.
Blood and others, we should judge that
Owatonna is not a "dead sister," but
making some very substantial improve
ments. There will be about one hun
dred thousand dollars expended in
stone and brick blocks for mercantile pur

improvonio.nts
throughout the suburban portions ofthe
town. We learn from Mr. L. that the
new bridge leading out of town across
Strait River, and which is in course of
construction, will cost, when finished,
not far from six thousand dollars. By
the way Mr. Lord drives a fast horse,
and fancy rig, and wc are obliged to him
for driving with us around town, "sight
seeing The large and well cultivated
garden of Dr. Blood, tho grapery of a
German, whose name we did not learn,
and many others, speak well for the
enterprise and taste of those who own
them, and are patterns which many
others should copy. Owatonna has also
a large cheese factory just put in opera
tion, which has already proved that
good cheese can be successfully made
in Minnesota. Steele eounty will prob
ably turn its attention toward building
a Court House next year, as they will
have completed all other heavy improve
ments by that time.

Call and
I.KROY ITEMS,
Quite a painful accident occurred
last week to a man named Mitchel, at
tho old town of Lelloy. Ho was en
gaged in helping to put a new water
wheel in Palmer's mill when some por
tion of the support to the heavy wheel
gave way, and let it down upon the leg
of the unfortunate man breaking it be
low the knee. At tho latest account,
he was doing as well as could be expec
ted.
Last week seems to havo been fruit
ful in the way of accidents. A
little daughter of Wentworth Hayes
was playing upon the stairs of the
school house, and fell over backwards,
striking on her head and back. Wrhen
taken up, 6he was insensible. Ilcr
father was sent for, and. conveyed
her home. Upon examination it was
found that she had not sustained any
very serious injury.
Last Saturday, Messrs S. M. Laribec
and A. B. l)e La Ronde wero out dri
ving with some ladies, and when they
wero coming into Main Street, from the
west end of town, the horses took fright
and commenced running and kicking at
a fearful rate through the street. Mr.
De La Ronde was driving, and he kept
them down the middle of the street.—
Mr. Larabee, who had his young child
in his arma jumped out striking on his
feet and rolling over two or three times
but managed to save the child, but
bruising it seriously. Mr. DeLe
Rondo succeeded in turning the
horses off the street into some thick
brush in the cast end of town and rein
ed them up against a fence without any
further damage. The escape of the
party was almost miraculous. The la
dies deserve great credit for their cool
ness in not trying to get out, for they
kept still, and saved themselves by so
doing. Mr. De La Ronde proved him
self a perfect manager of horses by the
way in which he handled them.
Business is getting rather dull. Far
mers Etay at home and work, and conse
quently merchants are now having time
to make out their list of wants for a fall
stock. We infer from remarks they
make, that they all intend buying heav
ily and withthe present prospects of the
crops, trade must be good.
What little wheat there ia coming in
brings good prices, and happy is
the man who had wheat and "held on,"
but it is not a safe rule as a gneral
thing, to adopt.
Quite an amusing incident occurred
a few days ago in our school: An inebri
ated individual presented himself
Miss Spencer's department and insisted
in taking part in the exercises. He
took his place at the head of a class of
little ones and did some funny spelling.
Tiring of that, he next wanted tj lead
in prayer. Miss Spencer getting an
noyed, sent up stairs for MiBs Davidson,
who coming down saw what was the
matter, and dispatchcd one of the schol
ars for Mr. Williams, one of the school
board. In the mean time, in order to
keep the visitor still, Miss Spencer set
them to singing as loud as they could,
nothing daunted, "we visitor" insisted
on a "season of prayer." Not succeed
ing in this, he demanded a Bible, when
informed there was not one at hand, he
wanted to know what kind of hea
thens they were. Failing in this, his
next strong effort was to make love to
Miss Davidson, hoping thereby to win
snme favor in that quarter. Those of
our readers who know Miss Davidson,
can imagine the "comical situation,"
but he found, as many a man before
him has, that it was no use taking to
her lie next tried to enlist Miss Spencer
in his behalf, but with the same succcss.
Mr. Williams just then appearing, put
an end to the farce. Mr. visitor left
but not without paying a very high com
pliment to 31is Spencer, for the manner
in which he had been entertained.
Cheap and Valuable Lands in
Mower County.
Several times recently we have called
attention to the fact that there are bet
ter bargains in real estate in this county
than any other portion of the North
wo3t. Our remarks are attracting the
attention of those desiring to emigrate,
and many inquiries are being made.—
For the information of all interested, we
repeat that there are thousands of acres
of as rich, beautiful prairie, as can any
where be found, now lying uncultiva
ted, within from seven to twelve miles
ofthe Milwaukee and St. Paul R. R.,
that can be purchased for six dollars
per acre. The terr of payment are
easy, BO that men with small means, if
abb to make the first payment, cm re
ly upon
the jiroducta of
tho
land
to
meet the balance. How mueh better
this is, than to go fifty or one-hundred
miles from market, and pay three dol
lars per acre. As an investment for
capitalists, these lands area great bar
gain, and will pay at least 2o per csnt.
Hinutes of the First Meeting ef tlie
State Line Teachers' Association.
We publish below the secretary's re
port of the first meeting of the State
Line leachcra' Association. We are
promised the lull report of the laet
meeting for our next issue. We are
pleased to notice this interest in educa
tion and the noble profession of teach
ing,amongtlie friends in thesouthernpart
of the eounty. We second their efforts
and will do all in our power to aid them:
A few friends of education, blown to
gether at the Minnereka school house,
during the gale of Saturday, P. M.
June 12th, '69, resolved themselves into
a Teachers'Association, when upon mo
tion of Mr. Adam St. John, Dr. Turner
was called to tho chair.
Mr. Andrew St. John, was appointed
Secretary, but he very gallantly de
clined in favor of the ladies and Mrs.
M. C. Potter was chosen to fill the office.
After much fruitless searching in capa
cious pockets, and considerable delay,
the necesary pencil and paper were pro
duced, and the "august body" proceeded
to the transactiou of business.
The majority of gentlemen present.,
led to sonic discussion as to the propri
ety of adopting a resolution to the effect
that the "lords of creation," must have
received at the hands of tho "fairer
portion of mankind," the much dreaded
mitten but it was finally dccidcd to
wait the result of the next meeting.
The President was requested to state
the object of the meeting, lie stated
that it was for the purpose of forming
a Teachers' Association, (composed of
those engaged in teaching, together with
all interested in the cause of education,)
to promote the good of common school?.
Remarks by Mr Adam St.
John, Mr. Potter, Mr. George Turner,
Rev. Mr. Kilgore and Mr. Hughes were
made.
Able and earnest arguments from the
President were listened to in regard to
the importance of making this a perma
nent organization.
Mr. Potter moved that a committee
of three be appointed to frame a consti
tution and a code of by-laws, and^hat
Misa'LMaria Gregg, Mr. George Tur
ner and Mr. Andrew St. John, be the
committee.
Moved by Mr. Adam St. John, that
the house resolve itself into a
committee of the whole, to act as leaven
in sustaining these meetings, and there
by stimulate an interest in tho cause of
education.
Mr. Turner moved that a committee of
two be appointed on programme Miss
Mina Spencer and G. Turner wore cho
sen.
Moved, seconded and carried that
our next meeting be at Otranto school
Jiouse.
MovecTTIrat pledge Nevada that
the second meeting from this shall be
held there,—carried.
A motion was adopted that the offi
cers elcfit shall be retained for the next
meeting.
Moved that the President appoint
some person as essayist on the object of
the Association, whereupon he reques
ted Mr. Kilgore to prepare an essay for
our next meeting.
Adjourned to meet at Otranto, at one
o'clock P. M., Saturday, June 2Gt'u.
