    Hypenated words at the ends of lines

    Adventurer

      When transcribing a word at the end of a line that's been hyphenated, is it better to type the entire word on one line or another? For example, in the section

       

      census of 1860 and the elections shall be con-

      ducted according to the former and in the

       

      is LC preference to transcribe it as

       

      census of 1860 and the elections shall be conducted

      according to the former and in the

       

      or

       

      census of 1860 and the elections shall be

      conducted according to the former and in the

       

      or does it even matter?
