a year of prosperity. lie winter has

before were more hopeful than calculat

As our readers know, we took excep

We did not regard the division as fair to

acted for this purpose in Cass couuty,
run the dividing lines through the middle
of civil townships, thus making it neces
sary for voters in many places to attend
two different polling places. We are now
more inclined to look upon the work of
our board as apiece of statemauship.

On Wednesday night Rev. Colman
Bristol, returning from Winnipeg reached
Emerson by train about 11.20 o'clock.
He immediately started towards West
Lynne, crossing the bridge on his way
to Mr. Purdyjp where he intended to stay
over night. On the bridge be meta half
breed who made some inquiries about
the train to Winnipeg and passed on.'
Going on his way, Mr. Bristol soon ob
served the man following him and was
overtaken by him near the brewery
brdge. The half breed seemed to be a
frieodly, harmless fellow and they walked
on together. Suddenly the half breed
struck Mr. Bristol a severe blow on the
back of the head followed by another
with a hard weapon that seemed like a
pistol, felling him to the ground.
Mr. Bristol recovered sufficiently to
make a show of resistance, when his as
sailant seemed to realize the danger of
being caught and took to his heels. Mr.
B. made his way to a hotel near by
where his wounds were dressed, Mr. Wil

it is incumbent Upon all citizens of our
town to look upon this matter in the light
of the public health as well as their own
individual safety and comfort. While in
the country this is a matter that concerns

to others. Let our town be dean and
healthy. Speaking of house cleaning
dont fail to destroy all such deleterious
matter as Police Gazettes and the like.
If the poison of these sheets must come
into our community let it be destroyed
as soon as possible. It is true, this is a

rather than the physical, but all the more

they prevented what might have been

The last number of the Pembina Pio

consolidation of the two Pembina papers,
the PIONEER and the NORTHERN EXPRESS,
and the new paper is to be the PIONEER
EXPRESS. P. A. Gajchell, familiarly
known as "Huckleberry," has sold his
interest in the PIONEER to It. H. Young
Esq., who is to manage the new paper.
The management of the new enterprise,
having all the patronage of the town,
will be able to make a stronger paper
than either could alone, and the consoli
dation will be better for the paper and
better for the town. One liberally sup
ported, able newspaper is better than
two or three, dividing the patronage and
consequently unable to meet the public
demand. The PIONEER-EITRESS has tlie
cordial good wishes of the Republican.

PIONEER-EXPRESS. Mr. Young has made
an excellent paper of the EXPBEBS aud
his new patrons can expect good treat
ment at his hands. But the question is
what is to bocome of Huckleberry? The
press of Nortl* Dakota can hardly exist
without that geuial element which
through many a severe storm lias
steered the PIONEER.

The NORTHERN EXPRESS aud Pembina
PIONEER have consolidated and R. H.
Young, late editor of the EXPRESS, will
assume editorial charge of the PIONKKU
EXPBESS. The EXPRESS
paper and will now be one of the best
weeklies in the Northwest.

The sooner we commence operations the
sooner we will reap tho benefits to be
derived.- There is nothing that
portions of this county needs more than
a good system of drainage.' It is my
opinion that most of the low land in this
county can be drained without burden
ing the people, and that this is the only
thing that is lacking to make this the
best laiiS in the world. I would be glad
to see the township supervisors f«w« tho
matter in hand.

Now that "Huckleberry" and Brother
Young of the editorial fraternity have
shown their sound sense by consolidat
ing and establishing one strong well-sup
ported paper instead of two, half sus
tained, why cannot our ministerial
brethren and churches consolidate the
four or five small Protestant organisations
into say two strong ones In this way
the work of 'Wing souls" could be car
ried on much more efficiently, Some of
our ministers are not well paid. All are
receiving missionair aid from tile
Two churches could be made self-sup
porting at once, and would not be as bur
densome to bur citizens as all aire now.
Besides, the citizens have all "chipped
in" to build the churches already erected,
and many would like very much not to
be troubled with any more such appeals
in the near future. Then there are many
places west of us .utterly destitute of the
means of grace and fully as wicked as
Pembina, so that if "saving souls" isi
really the aim of our ministerial brethren
they need not all linger her«t on the
borders, but should seud some of their
number to the regions beyond.
