-t fe 'i 'ill I II II THE TRANSCRIPT AUSTIN, MINNESOTA: THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 1, 1879. Tlir Uoiirts. V.'e are glad to hear that there appears to be a decided reaction in sentiment on the bond question. Many of the bitter est enemies of the proposition on the east side at first, are now advocates of the bonds. They see that the annual interest on §20,000 will make scarcely any per ceptible difference in the tax levy, and, llierefore, the actual additional cost to each farmer on uccouut of the building will bo a very insignificant sum. But most sensible of all, they have come to the conclusion that a new court-house is an absolute necessity—that it is not safe, nor wise, nor just, to longer risk the val uable records ot the county in the pres eat building. We wish thai every voter would look at the needs of the county and voje yes or no on this proposition just as he shall find the needs of the county to be. That is the principle which shoal I guide every voter. The fact is so evident...

We do cot expect a very large vote on Tuesday, but we do have aright to expect that every citizun having the interests of Mower county at heart wil! come forward and vote for the bonds. The County Commissioners have, for years, seen the necessity of new buildings, and after de ciding to build them, now give the people an opportunity to say how they will fur nish the means required. If they vote down the bonds, of course the Commis sioners will feel warranted in levying a direct tax, and those who vote .against the bonds will have no right to complain of high taxes. Friends, read the special law under which this special election is called, and work and vote unr.erstandingly. An Act to Authorise the County of Mow* er to luae Bonds for Building a Court- House.

VOL. XII. NO. 7. THETRANSCRIPT C. H. DAVIDSON,Editor!^,'Proprietor. AUSTIN, MINNESOTA: THURSDAY MORNING. MAY 13,1879. NO BONDS WANTED. Four to Five Hundred Majority Against the Measure. The vote on the bond proposition Tuesday was generally light throughout the county, except in two or three towns, which rolled up nearly their usual vote, and against the bonds. The city of Aus tin did not poll much more than half a vote, but every vote cast was in favor of the bonds. Below we give the vote of the most of the towns, which shows 416 majority against bonds. The towns to hear from will probably increase the majority to 500 or over. The opposition on the west side of the county was not because the people were opposed to the building of a court-house, but because they were opposed to the issuing of bonds for that purpose. They want it built by direct taxation. Here is the record: TOWNS. Austin City—First Ward Second Ward Third Ward Austin Town Adams Bennington Clayton Dexter Dexter Villag...

Men are no longer what they were When the young Christ was newly born, Or when amid a golden morn Rime tottered on her uncient throne V/hea hearts went out to minister Unto the idolatrous fsr and wido Sweet hope and mercy s.wctifiod, And all that love had made its own. Men are no longer what they were When souls began to doubt and hopa To fade--like mist upon a slope Dissolved in dawning floods of light: hen fait a seemed half a thing of air Built on the moving sands of dream, A creed of empty sound, supreme In dull, colu splendor of the night.
