THE TRANSCRIPT.
Entered as second-class matter at the post office at
Austin, Minnesota.
C.H. DAVIDSON,Editor^sg® Proprietor
AUSTIN, MINNESOTA:
WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 10,1882.
MINNESOTA has 110 reason to complain
of the backward season. Central New
York was treated to a lively snow-storui a
week ago yesterday.
REPRESENTATIVES Kasson, Dunnell,
Wilson and Belmont constitute a sub
i-oniniittee to take testimony in New York
in the Chili Peruvian investigation.
AUSTIN is the proper place to hold the
Republican Congressional Convention for
the flrst district. It is centrally located,
and more easily reached by rail than any
other point. We have extensive hotel
accommodations and a good hall.
THE very latest. W. W. Williams ac­
cuses Tim Sheelian of lying! It is
thought Tim will survive,—and if the
Standard
vice
can only be induced to "do so
some more," he will be sure of a re-elec­
tion as Sheriff for the seventh term!
THE modified Chinese bill—with the
change from twenty to" ten years—was
signed by President Arthur Monday, so,
for the next ten years, the Mongolians
must steer clear of the United States—
the "Land of the Free and the Home of
the Brave!"
WE are informed that Capt. A. C. Haw
ley, a resident of this city during the
past winter, has received the appoint­
ment of Adjutant General of the State,
Gen. Van Cleve. Whatever else may
be said of Capt. Hawley, it cannot be
said that he is dishonest or incompetent.
As a politician, while sometimes bitter on
his enemies, he is always true as steel to
his friends.
FEW realize the enormous amount of
money annually paid out for pensions,
though the sum in gross has been often
slated. There is not a county in the State
of Illinois that has not its pensioners, and
Ave believe the smallest number in any
county is nineteen. The total number in
the state is 19,619, and they draw annually
pensions amounting to over two millions
of dollars. Indeed, the amount annually
paid in this state, including arrearages, is
over three millions. Illinois has the larg­
est number of pensioners of any .of the
northwestern tier of states, but the others
follow close behind. Indiana has 14,466,
Iowa 10,925, Michigan 11,468, Wisconsin
9,126, Kansas 7,524, Minnesota 3,932, and
Nebraska 287. In the whole country
there are 269,851 persons drawing pen­
sions, and the money paid to them
amounts in the aggregate to §29,263,469
annually. This is about the sum of the
entire national debt in 1856. Of course
the sum expended will soon reach its
maximum, and then go on decreasing
more and more rapidly as the survivors of
the war drop off, until there will be com­
paratively few left twenty years hence,
when almost the youngest man taking part
in the war will be upward of three score.

.Mr.
DtinneH's
Opposition.
The opposition to Mr. Dunnell embraces
two distinct elements, those who favor
civil service reform, and free trade, and
another class who are displeased with ap­
pointments to office made or not made.
Both elements are seeking a captain, and
each look for the man who represents
them. The woods are full of suitable
men for the latter class, but they are la­
mentably scarce for the former. Sir-.
Bunnell's present strength, as it has been
his past strength, is in that fact. No
man has come into sufficient general
prominence in the district, who is a leader
of men by virtue of his brain power, his
convictions of duty and right, and broad
opinions on public matters. If he exist
at all in the district he has kept his light
shining with sedulous care, under a
bushel. But, if Mr. Dunnell is to be de­
feated at all, if the victor}* over him is to
be anything more then a virtual defeat, if
the party expects to move forward to the
higher ground, this man must be found
by the opposition, and commissioned as
their Captain. If he cannot be found if
they are compelled to choose between Mr.
D. and a man of 110 greater caliber if
the change is to be only one of men, and
none of methods if the practices they
reprobate are to be continued and only
some other man use the "patronage" for
his own and not the public interests
his convictions of the need of his con­
stituents and the country for a free trade
are no clearer than Mr. Dunnell's if the
fight is to be simply Dunnell and anti
Dunnell,—a mere personal squabble for
the spoils, then the real opposition may
as well go back to their tents, and wait
until taller timber grows.—Caledonia

Ar-
gus.
The above is very sensible and rational
talk, for a newspaper which is classed as
anti-Dunnell. Ah, but the editor has
Ideas, unlike the most of the antis who
publish newspapers, and he gives the only
reasons which any honest man ought to
use in opposing Dunnell. Nine-tenths of
the opposition comes from disappointed
office-seekers and their friends. If you
ask any one of these men of their griev­
ance, they will say: "Don't like the ap­
pointment of ." fn the next breath
they will admit Mr. Dunnell's intelligence
and more than usual ability. They will
not bring against him a single charge of
corruption in office during his twelve
years of congressional life. You investi­
gate the matter further, and you will find
these men were formerly strong friends
of Dunnell, but turned against him be­
cause he did not regard their wishes in
the appointment of some postmaster or
route agent. Now, ought the arguments
of a prejudiced, unreasonable, disap­
pointed office-seeker to have any more
weight with the people against Mr. Dun­
nell, than the arguments of the office­
holder in favor of Dunnell. The office­
holder may be indebted to the congress­
man for his position, but in nine cases
out of ten, his support of him will not he
nearly so unreasonably "subservient," as
the opposition of the sore-head will be
unreasonably bitter and unjust. Gener
ally speaking, a man's friend will not do
half the energetic work for him that the
enemy will do against him.

boom for MiloD. White in the First dis­

says he is rapidly
rallying the opposition to Dunnell and it
has no doubt he will be nominated. The
Standard,
however, is a poor prophet.
It predicted Dunnell's defeat the last
time.—Minneapolis

An Editor's Opinion,
An editorial friend of ours,who has'grown
enthusiastic over a certain remedy which
has cttred him of dyspepsia, general de­
bility and nervousness, writes an editorial
as follows: "Wc believe that Brown's
Iron Bitters are destined to be
JJitters.'
THE
medi­
cine of the world. They give real health
and strength to every part of the body,
restore every lost or impaired organic fun
ction, and give new life and new vigor to
every
man health
At a recent mass meeting in Mankato
in the interests of Southern Minnesota,
Mr. Willard, declares this part of the state
to be "the best country for dairying that
he had ever seen." New York is next best.
But for nutritious grasses Southern Min­
nesota excelled any other country he had
any knowledge of.
Wheat raising had "played out" many
years ago in New York. It is "played
out" in Southern Minnesota, and we arc
fortunate in having something better to
fall back upon. There may be better corn
countries, but none better for grass.
Southern Minnesota in particular, with
its great abundance of water, is just as
good for dairying as the country around
Elgin, 111., or the best dairying districts
of Iowa, with the added advantage of
the superior richness of our grass. We
find that Northern fruits excel those of
the Middle and Southern States in the
richness of their flavor, and doubtless the
same causes will explain the superiority
of our grass. The statements made in
describing our climate, soil and produc­
tions—Mr. Willard well said—need not
be exaggerated, for we cannot exceed the
truth.
very
ould re
oice that a real cure lies in Brown's Iron
Southern Minnesota is, beyond question
iu the minds of those who have had op­
portunities for close observation, the
choicest portion of the Northwest. Its
rich soil, its variety of surface, its
abundance of pure water as found in
streams and springs, its sufficiency of
woodland shelter, and its freedom from
malarial disease, combine to make it al­
most the ideal home of diversified agri­
culture, and its merit as such will grow
in recognition and remain long after some
of the novel attractions of to-day shall
have exhausted their transitory ".boom"
and fallen back into obscurity and neglect.
The C., 31. & St. P. R. K. Co. aud 1881.
The eighteenth annual report of the
directors of this great corporation has
just been issued. From it we glean the
following facts:
The gross earnings for 1881, were $17,
025,461.66 gross expenses (including
taxes), $10,317,731.14 net earnings, $6,
707,530.52. The increase iu the gross
earnings over 1880 is $3,939,343.05. In­
crease in gross expenses over 1880, $2,
575,505.46.
During the year the company has con­
structed the following branches and ex­
tensions:
In the state of Illinois, a line from
Roc-kton to Rockford, sixteen miles
Braceville coal track, one mile.
In the state of Wisconsin, a line from
Mazomanie, on the Prairie du Cliien di­
vision, to Prairie du Sac, ten miles from
Mouroe to Shullsburg, thirty-four miles.
In the territory of Dakota the Iowa &
Dakota division has been extended to the
Missouri river at Chamberlain, thirteen
•miles the Southern Minnesota division
from Dell Rapids to Sioux Falls, nineteen
miles the Hastings division has been ex
tended west to Aberdeen, thirty miles,
and thence up the James river north from
Aberdeen, forty miles, and its Whitstone
branch, running northwest from Milbank
Junction, has been extended eleven miles
There have also been constructed in the
James river valley, south from Aberdeen,
thirty-three miles of track, and on the
line west from Flandreau twenty-two
miles from Madison to Howard City.
In the state of Iowa a branch has been
constructed from the Iowa & Dakota di­
vision at Emmetsburg northwest fifteen
miles. The Chicago & Pacific Western
division has been extended west towards
Council Bluffs from Marion, 198 miles,
making the aggregate construction for
the year 442 miles, which, added to the
3775 miles previously owned by the com­
pany, makes it the owner of 4217 miles
of completed railway.
Of the extension from Marion to Coun­
cil Bluffs sixty-four miles of track remain
to be laid and when this is done, as it
will be by next July, the company will
have a line between the last named place
and Chicago not inferior to that of any
other company in any respect, and pass
ing through a populous country remarka
ble for its fertility.
A cheap and reliable supply of fuel to
meet the large and growing wants of the
company has been deemed by the direc
tors a matter of the greatest importance
and they have therefore caused to be pur­
chased 3,000 acres of coal lands at Brace
ville,sixty-one miles southwest fromCliica
go, at the cost of $293,000 and 2,000 acres of
coal lands near Oskaloosa la., at a cost
including improvements, $210,000. From
these fields the company is now receivin
daily supplies.
The company has now 1,239 miles of
road laid with steel rails, being an increase
of 418 miles during the past year. The
total bonds and stocks which represent
the entire cost of the company's property
amount to $114,974,489 on 4,217 miles of
road, being at the rate of $27,264 per
mile.
The purchase of the several roads
acquired by this company and the con
struction of their connecting lines, to
gethcr with extensions of the main line
making a system of railroads covering,
in well adjusted distances, an immense
extent of the most fertile and productive
country in the world, susceptible of con­
tinued yearly increase in its population
and productions, giving to this company
a promise of future development unequal
ed by any other railroad system, and
working together so harmoniously as to
render its possibilities for cheapness of
operation unsurpassed.
