RI6IS
OF WEAKIBII IM THE
B1I«.
Th« Oil Game of PromisM Begum.
Every day the grasp which the lead
ers of the Austin dynasty hare so long
had upon a large number of the tax
paying'voters of the county, is growing
weaker. The people begin to reflect,
and while they reflect, the question ar
rises, what is the propriety in our pay
ing such enormous taxes every year, to
enrich a few men who lie around the
county buildings in Austin under the
pretext of serving us, while in fact,
they serve their own pockets This
question is followed by a settled con
viction that the time has fully come
when the power of this corrupt and
dangerous dynasty shall be broken.—•
The leaders of this Ring have discov
ered the change of wind and tide, and
are trimming their sails accordingly.—
The cardinal doctrine of their oreed is
this,
uWe
will have the whole profits
and emoluments Tf the county offices if,
we can get them, if not, we will secure
the election of our special friends who
will divide the spoils with us as a com
pensation for our influence." They
never adopt the latter alternative when
they feel sure of the former, and they
frequently advocate the latter in order
to secure the former. Whenever cer
tain men and their organ the Regitter
are known to advocate selecting men
outride of Austin to fill county offices,
as they are now doing, it may.be regar
ded as proof positive of one of two
things—party weakness—or a sly game
to dupe the people. This dodge of
tickling men in the various towns with
promises of office is not new. It is
practiced every year, to secure the del
egation from certain doubtful towns.—
Last year, LeRoy, Windom and Racine
were all seduced by treacherous prom
ises of office,—pledges that those who
tde them never intended to fulfil.—
What was the result Mr. Fairbanks
of Windom, and Sanborn of Racine were
loth sold out in the convention. Wil
liams, of Le Roy refused to barter away
the profits of his olge to Solomon
Snow, in case he should be elected, and
for this unpardonable sin against tho
creed of tho Ring, was defeated by those
who hid been loudest in their protes
tations of allegaiuce to his cause.—
Hathaway was elected by tho votes that
were taken from Williams, which was
done simply and solely because he
agreed to admit Snow as an equal part
ner. Results verify what we «ay, for
to-day no attempt is made to conceal
the fact that the office of Register of
Deeda ia a partnership couocrn between
Snow and Hathaway. Wo said last
year, many times that the King had no
party principles. This proves it, for
they affiliate with Democrats any time
to Fccuro office.
This talk of electing outside men has
commcnccd agriin this fall. What docs
it mean If tho past is any evidence
it means this Elect such men as tho
ringleaders may name. Whom will they
name None but thoso who will en
ter into a solemn compact to do the busi
ness as they dictate, to conccal all their
past delinquencies and frauds, to con
tinue the old order of things in every
particular, to appoint them and their
sons as deputies, and more than all, to
divide the sjioi/s with thrm.
Now, at this early day, wo warn the
citizens of the county to beware of any
nnd all men outside of Austin or inside,
who are taken up and supported by this
money stealing dynasty. There is but
one way to redeem the county from the
thraldom of these wicked despoilers and
that is to elect men to fill their places
who arc known and pledged to oppose
their uulawful and ruinous practices.—
Every time an office is vacated, put a
man into it who has ability and stam
ina, one who will not succumb to whis
ky, threats nor bribes, and one who
will not be afraid to let the people
know where their money goes.
All that Sylvester Smith and Sol
omon Snow want this fall is to get a
Treasurer who will receipt to them for
all the illegally purchased bonds and
orders they may have on hand, who will
not investigate past transactions and
will give the use of the County funds
to Smith A Co. Of course they
would like to manage these little
affairs themselves, but there are several
aspiring "outside" men who wonld not
hesitate to do it for them. Look out
for them.
Temperaace in Polities.
The temperance people of Minnesota
are juat now engaged in a misguided
movement. Being mostly Republicans
they aro likely to make trouble in the
Republican Party. They have planted
themselves upon certain ground and say
to either of the great parties "Come to
us and we will be with you." Their
doetrine is prohibition as a political
creed. The Democratic Convention
will repudiate them at onee. So very
likely will the Republican. This
leaves to them their threatened alterna
tive of nominating a third State Ticket.
Nothing is more to be desired tlmn
temperance rulers. Drunkenness is the
bane and disgrace of our national coun
cils. But these temperance reformers
have taken a wrong way to accomplish
a very good result. The right way is
to go to work in republican style among
the people and see that none but tem
perance men are nominated for office.
We venture the prediction that if the
Good Templars and their co-workers in
the good cause nominate a third ticket
this fall, there will be on it the usual
proportion of whisky-drinking men, be
sides an unusual number of imbeciles.
This movement will furnish a W op
portunity for broken down Politicians
who will don the robes of templars as
a temporary expedient to gain power.—
No man is fit for office unless he is tem»
perate in all things,—but the simple
fact Chat a person does not drink whisky
is no] evidence that he would govern
a
State, County or City with ability. Our
temperance friends forget (as they did
here last spring) that there are other
qualifications beside total abstinance,
necessary to fit men to discharge public
duties successfully.
•hall Ike People Bale?
The only safety of Republican govern
ment is the integrity, ability and vigi
lance of the people. No truer saying
was ever uttered than that "eternal
vigilance is the price of liberty."—
The people can never slumber over
their rights, nor entrust their interest
to the keeping of hired servants if they
would be prosperous and happy.—
Every citisen has a political duty to
perform, which no one can do for him.
He is a unit of the government and as
such is responsible for the right or
wrong that exists. Men act wisely
when they unite their energies in a
ood cause. Every evil that creeps
into our political system should be
rooted out. The people should act
together in doing it. Hence a peo
ples' movement to break up the corrup
tion of a party or a clan who have
usurped the powers of a party, is always
honorable and right, such movements
are our only safeguard. They arc al
most a necessity of our political system
and they are becoming more common
every day. In a large number of the
counties of this State, where a few men
have combined for many years to con
trol offices and patronage for selfish
ends, until the burdens of taxation have
become too heavy to be borne in silence,
the people aro waking up to their own
interests, and uniting with a determin
ed purpose to hurl the usurpers from
power. This is not only being done in
this but in other States. In the city
of Chicago a revolution in local matters
is going on and the fight is very bitter.
On a large scale they have there the
exact counterpart of what exists in Mow
er County. They have a ring that has
farmed out the county offices for many
years. But the people without regard
to party or sect, have now taken hold of
the matter. They have but one plank
in their platform and that is to drive
out the old ring.
As might have been anticipated all
The St. Paul Press, for instance, is
the organ of the Head Ceuter Ring of
tho State, and it loses no opportunity
to hurl its fury at any movement in any
county, that looks towards reform.—
That paper can see no virtue in the peo
ple, but any existing order of things,
however corrupt, is, in its estimation,
entitled to profound regard, and is law
supreme. The little crumb-picking
Register of this place in a small way
takes the same course since it first star
ted. The only thing that has kept the
breath of life in it, is what money the
old ring have stolen from the people
and given it. For five years this sense
less paper has cost the county at least
one thousand dollars per annum, and
all this time it has done nothing but go
through the pantomine of opening and
shutting its mouth whenever certain
ring men nodded. No wonder that all
such hireling sheets should oppose eaeh
and every movement of the people that
would have a tendency to dry up the
source of their sustenance. But the
shallow devices of suoh selfish men can
never prevent the onward movement of
the ear of reform. Those who publish
newspapers to uphold iniquity, and en
deavor to blind the eyes of the people,
and dupe them to support fraud, are
digging their own graves deeper and
deeper every day. Sooner or later the
virtue, integrity and independence, of
the people will be made manifest, and
all wicked usurpers will be hurled
from power. Tes, let the people move
when ever they will to the overthrow
of wickedness, and let small dogs bark
at them if in so doing they find conso
lation, during their brief day.
We Peer Uaffcrtnaato.
It is an easy thing to make wholesale
assertions that our neighbors tell lies,
but it is quite another thing to prove
that they tell them. If one half the
allegations of the Mower County Reg
itter for the last year were true, (an
hypostheBis which no christian would
be wicked enough to make,) the Fa
ther of Lies wodld justly assign the
TRANSCRIPT a position in his house
hold not much below tho Regitter.
But it may never have occurred to the
addled brain of the selfrigteous crumb
picker who is preparing himself for so
high a position in the above mentioned
household that he has never proved
that during all this tiuie we have utter
ed one falsehood: Does the silly
youth suppose that the idiotio clack of
his tounge as it goes through the old
mechanical performance of saying "you
lie "you lie" "TOU Lix" "you He" "you
lie" "you LIX/'is taking by the public:
any evidence of truth
Does "Charley" remember one day
when he held up his little hand and
swore "that the TRANSCRIPT supple
ment contained a hundred lies And
does he remember that after he had
taken the oath he couldn't point out
one! It is said that there is no ani
mial of so low a grade of instinct but
that it can cry for food, and it is well
known that the best evidenco of a va
cant mind is the constant repetition of
the same thing. The poor Register
boy does both, every day he cries to
the county for food, and fills up the in
tervals with his senseless mumbling
monotone "you lie" "you lie" "you lie"
The State has provided an asylum for
this class of unfortunates and there the
County or his parents ought to have
mercy enough to send him.

PROCEEDINGS OP THE ASSOCIATION
AUGUST
26TH,
The trains yesterday brought a large
number to attend the State Ttachers'
Association, and much interest is man
ifested in the proceedings. At half
past three in the afternoon Hon. O. P.
Whitcomb, President of the Rochester
Board of Education, called the teach
ers' Convention to order and cordially
welcomed the members to the city.—
The State Superintendent and Presi
dent of the Association, Mr. Dunnell,
followed with an able and interesting
address, which was listened to with
marked attention.
8TNOPBI8 or ICR. DUNNELT's ADDRESS
He welcomed them to the hours of
discussion and deliberation before them
and proceeded to indicate some of the
aims which the teachers should have in
view, some of the character lessons he
should give, tastes and aspirations he
should cultivate, and some of the errors
he should avoid. The teacher, he said,
should aim to secure symmetry and
completeness in development. The
methods to accomplish this must be
adapted to the qualities of the natures
to be educated. The pupil must be
come accustomed do things that natur
ally he has no indication to do. and a
concentration of the entire mind must
be secured. The grand object of all
study must be constantly in view and
clearly apprehended. Students should
be allowed to traverse the whole domin
ion of learning.
The cries of the soul for the beautiful
should not be drowned by the cry of the
useful. The habits tastes and concep
tions of life and human duty whieh the
pupil has acquired ia school, will effect
the whole earner of life. It is the gen
eral truth that he will follow the gui
dings of these tastes and conceptions.
In illustration, ihen, of what incal
culable value to every youth is the
habit of reading, a taste fur the knowl
edge found treasured up in books.—
How the mind expands as it is made
acquainted with what other minds have
discovered. How rapidly a love of
learning grows in the mind which has
become in love with its extent and char
acter. A book filled with noble senti-.
ments, correct views of life, the grand
aehicvements which, short though it is,
it may make becomes an exciter of
those ambitions to know, to be and to
do, which are needed in every heart,
that life bccomes both honorable and
useful.
Teachers should 6ccuro for their pu
pils the reading ofiuch books as give a
truthful account of the affairs of men
or recite noble, manly, heroic benevo
lent deeda. The reading of such books
makes character, it inspires to the like
action,/it gives models and urges on to
noble endeavor. Too many pupils leave
the school without a thought of the
demands of life, with no heart to say or
feel that "we are living, we are dwel
ling in a grand and awful time."
Again, pupils must be instructed as
to the costliness of knowledge—that it
is sccurcd only by hard, patient labo
rious toil that no royal road has yet or
ever will be built to it that with the
improvements that may have been dis
covered in teaching, none have ever
lessened the necessity for earnest atten
tion, continued application, real toil.
I have desired in this address to
make prominent one general thought,
that a youth to be well educated and
fitted for life, must not only have the
ment:tl, moral and physical natures re
garded, but he must be instructed in the
duties of life, its highest behests,—how
best to meet them, with what spirit un
dertaks and discharge them—how host
to find admittance to the truest and no
blest in human life and its achievments
-—how most sncccssfully to run the race
of the student and general learner—
how to become a generous, magnani
mous, useful tn or woman—how most
surely to act out the truth that life is
real and earnest—how drink the .
pirations of learning, how amass it, and
avoid the terrible silliness of pel.intry
—how grapple with the haril things in
knowledge that the mind become both
bold and victorious—how in student
and
latter
lile, bear the banner with
the strange device, even mid snow and
ice bear it pa&t. though fires glow
warm and bright—bear it, tnough a
maiden cries Rest thy weary head—
and though perils bo ioretolil, bear it
far up the height.
Tho above is, of course, but an im
perfect outline of this able addross, as to
be fully appreciated it should be given
entire, which it would bo impracticable
to do by telegraph.
The session will be continued to-day,
and will probably adjourn tin* di» to
morrow noon. This evening Rev.
AUSTIN, MOWER COUiNTY, MINN., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2,1869. NO 21.
John Mattocks of St. Paul, will deliver
an address on National Science—its re
lation to Education.
During Thursday afternoon commit

nominations which reported on Friday.
As soon as the opening exercises
were concluded on Friday, the commit
tee on nominations reported. After
some little discussion the secretary was
authorized to cast the ballot of tho As

THE NEXT ASSOCIATION.
The week preceeding the first Mon
day in September was fixed upon as the
time, and Mankato as the place for hol
ding the next meeting of the association.
RESOLUTIONS
were adopted returning thanks to the
citizens of Rochester for their generous
hospitality in entertaining the teachers
during their sojourn in the city, the lo
cal committee lor its untiring efforts to
add to the interest of the association,
to Captain Heany for the use of the
hall, to the various transportation com
panies for returning teachers over their
various lines free, to the officers of the
association for the prompt and faithful
manner in which, they had discharged
their duties, and to the various speak
ers who contributed to the interest of
the occasion.
A resolution was also adopted expres
sing sympathy with Mr. Payne, editor
of the Minnesota Teacher, in his severe
illness.
THE TOWNSHIP SYSTEM.
Prof. W. E. Phelps, of the First
State Normal School was down on the
programme for a paper on the subject
of "The Township vermt the District
system." He was not present, but sent
a letter which was read, in which he
expressed his opinion that the Township
system was decidedly preferable.
The whole subject was referred to a
committo, of which Prof. Phelps was
made chairman, for .a report at next
meeting of the Association.
CIVIL GOVERNMENT.
The time allotted to Prof. Phelps
was occupied by Mr. A. W. Young, of
Red Wing, in delivering an address up
on the science ofjeivil government. It
was listened to with profound attention.
The convention adopted a resolution
recommending the speedy introduction
of a text book upon the subject into the
public schools.
ROCHESTER SCHOOL BUILDING.
The recess was occupied in visiting,
by invitation, the elegant new school
building which is about being com
pleted in Rochester. It is centrally
located, will seat 800 pupils, has all
modern improvements, and a bell which
weighs 1500 pounds. The building is
doubtless the finest school building in
Minnesota, and will cost when entirely
completed $65,000.
ADDRESS BY PROF. GAGE.
Immediately after recess Rrof. Geo
M. Gage, of the Second Normal School,
delivered an eloquent address upon
"The Teacher Teaching
Our space forbids any attempt at an
abstract of this or any of the other ad
dresses delivered during the session of
the Association. Several of them were
of unusual interest.
CLOSE OF THK ASSOCIATION.
After Prof. Gage elosed, Hon. M. H.
Dunnell, Superintendent of Public In
struction, made a few remarks, in which
he returned his sincere thanks to the
association for the unflagging interest
which they had manifested, and urged
them to still greater effort and devotion
for the ensuing year.
After singing the doxology the asso
ciation adjourned sine die. The trains
at 11-2 o'clock, gowing to Owatonna
and Winona, were crowded to overflow
ing. There was scarcely standing room
on the train until Owatonna was
reached, and the coaches were greatly
crowded from there to St. Paul.
Altogether the association was a
grand success and a credit to the State.
The manner in which the educational
interests of Minnesota are being cared
for is a source of just pride to all her
citizens.
