THE LOUISA COUNTY CAPITAL WAR
THE LOUISA COUNTY CAPITAL WAR
(Several paragraph breaks added:)

The beauty of a county seat war is that you are never permitted to be weaned by the monotony of the proceedings. This is no pottering around in the business; everything is red hot, sudden, and unexpected. Now you see it, and now again your optics search for it in vain, until it takes another shape and springs up before you to challenge your wonder.

In a county seat war, more than in any other contest, it is true that he laughs best who laughs last. Our neighbors up in Louisa county, have had a fair amount of experience in matters of this kind. They have a rich county, containing two cities that are rivals for the position of capital of their county. They are people of more than average intelligence and education; they possess all the qualifications and characteristics of a live, ambitious, pushing community. They transact an immense amount of general business and support six good weekly newspapers, each of which has a fair following, and stands on its feet firmly enough lo take its own part.

And though they have for years past had a county seat fight on their hands, one of the most harassing, distracting trials they could be afflicted with, these people have carried on a business and labored earnestly to build up their county interests, working with a zeal and public spirit that promises well for the community when the county seat trouble is finally and definitely settled, and they have nothing to do but push Louisa county ahead.

And while outside newspapers and people have very carefully abstained from interfering in this family unpleasantness, there has been a very general wish that it might soon, for the good of the county, reach a definite conclusion. At the last election the matter appeared to be decided in favor of Wapello, but the result, as reported, was not acquiesced in, and the question was carried into the courts. Judge Newman recently ordered a recount of the ballots in four townships and in making this recount, the clerk of the court discovered a mistake in the count of Marshall township, which gave to Columbus Junction a majority of fifteen, in the total vote on locating the county capital.

As a consequence, in the words of our correspondent, "Columbus Junction feels jubilant," although it is impossible to know whether or not this is the end of the matter. But we hope that Louisa county will very soon find a way out of these troubles, and be entirely free from the local bitterness and discontent that cannot help growing out of a contest of this nature.
