THE abandonment of League Island is again said to be under consideration at the navy department, with a view to the establishment of a navy-yard near Chester, Penn. THE sentiment of the press of the Pacific coast is as unfavorable to Kear ney as ever. The Alta-California says: "The Kearney circus continues to be the attraction in the interior.

THETRANSCRIPT AUSTIN, MINNESOTA: THURSDAY MORNING. APRIL 10, 1879. THE financial statement of Houston county, as published in the Caledonia Journal, gives the total payments to county commissioners during the fiscal year ending Feb. 28th last, as $955.35— almost $200 apiece around for each of the five commissiners, and considerably more, we believe, than the commissioners of this county drew during the same time. As Houston county is in Page's district, we shall expect to hear, at the next term of court in that county, that he instructed the grand jury to investigate that matter. Of course, it is just as wrong to "steal" in Houston county as it is in Mower. WHAT do the gentlemen who composed the grand jury at the late term of court, think of the following outrageous attack made upon them in Hotchkiss & Page's Republican: There is accumulating evidence that the grand jury system of this country is a useless and mischievous legal excres cence, unworthy of being longer tolerated.

a VOL. XII. NO. THETRANSCRIPT AUSTIN, MINNESOTA: THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 17,1879. Those Cour('lloua« Bonds. We suppose the only proper points to be considered in voting on tlie proposi tion on May 13th, to issue $20,000 in bonds to build a court-house, are, whether a new building is needed, whether the amount asked for is too much, and wheth er it is true economy not to provide suit able buildings for the safe-keeping of the County property and records. Now, we desire to answer these questions, and we will endeavor to do so fairly: First, Is a new court-house needed Any tax-payer who has ever been to Austin and in the least examined th preseut building will not need any argu mcnt on this point. The building Is poor, lickety- concern, very poorly ar ranged, and cannot accommodate tlu officers with half the room which is need ed.
