Ex-register Joba Anderson closes & six-year term as'register of deeds of ibis cpunty with an enviable record. No county official has warmer or truer friends than Mr. Anderson, and amung fails friends may be counted al most every man who bas bad nuslness at tjbe office. With an intimate and remarkably extensive knowledge of almost every section of land in the county and of the county recordsJie associated "a polite and obligiog%e meunor, which saved the patrons of the offloe many hours of time and re search. The records, which, when he took: the office were, owing to chang es in tbe la# and other things, in rather bad shape, are now. as correct and clear as human care can make them, and will stand for years as the best testimony of the care and ability of Mr. Anderson i, At present, Mr. Anderson's future is somewhat problematical. With r. Augustus Short he. is interested an abstract business m'tbe county, and he may continue in that work with Mr. Short. Our citizens here hope that he and his excellent family will remain with us. Ex-States Attorney Young also re tires from county 'office with honor and tbe good wishes of a very large number of tbe people whom be bas served. Mr. Young's ability as a law yer and prosecuting attorney needs no enconium from us. It is written on the records of the court calendars. He has a state reputation as a legal adviser, and while he gees out of of I, fice, he will still have all the legal ^businessthat be can well attend to. fTTbere have been j'umurs that Mr. YO see so jet as Mr. Ybiitig leave us. While it: is hardly proper to speak of Mr. Bride as an "out," because-he re tains his office of county auditor un til March 1st, yet it is proper to say at this time, that the people of Pern ina are glad to learn that tbe ar rangements are such that Mr. Bride will still be found in the auditor's of* fice after that time and that he and his family will still be numbered among our citizens. Mr. Thomson's choice as deputy will certainly please our people and we believe tbe -people generally, without regard to party, and will' insure the same efficient work in the auditor's office as hereto fore. Ex-Sheriff McCabe. who has just closed his term, has proved himself a genial, pleasant gentleman, whose urbanity has made him many personal frieuds. It Is understood that Mr. McCabe wili,:in the near future set tle down to married life and -devote his public energies to tbe wheat mar ket and everybody wishes him happi ness iu the former and success in the 'latter. l|i||i§pj Mr. Mclnt&hi the retiring cotnmis sioner, has been a very useful mem ber of one of the ablest, if not the ablest, county boards in our history. Mr. Mcintosh will probably not regret his many enforced journeys to Pem bina, but we hope to see him her|» sometimes at least, in the future. (JLO' -R .JRJFISUR- THEIJJ'S The transfers at th$ court bo use oc curred on Tuesday and evertblpg went onamicably, and nobody vwould have though t.tbat er8twbile. \these mighty Warriors had met in clash of battle. At the register's office Mr. J. M. Cbisholm now signs himself as head man, while HarryCarr of Crys tal is deputy. Mr. Carr is nostraotter to this city and 1s warmly welcomed, especially by the younger mentWrsW society. Mr. J. D. Wlnlawalso finis tbattbe register's offloe is familiar and congenial quar^rs, and bu tec! nical knowledge of ibe business! wi be of great assistance to tbe hew 049] ciali. Ex-Sheriff McCabe left the haodl^f over of the keys to bis deputy Freer man Walters, and: npw'8berlff Trtteift ner presides at the court room, while T. W. Brown of Hamilton Is keeping bouse in one end of the jail building. Geo.

The treasurer, clerk pf Jourt, coun ty Judge and superlntendlnt "all re joice that it did not seenj^good to the voters, that there Jh^ijid be any changes in their offices*-bit they have to furnish new bonds s^ear in Just the same Will FeUion is to be congratulated on attaining bis ma jority and deputyship In the clerk of court's office at the samjf time. And thus tbe County jjragon, with new greased wheels, starts out on an other two years trip, her roll in peace and prosperity. ,-i.vr THE BROKEN BANKS. Many people point to the broken banks which have closed' their doors during the last few weeks as the re sult of Cleveland's1 adiwulstration of the tariff, ofthepopuligfic W^ve, or of the election of McKlQi|y,.:all accord ing the Various political vieW6 of dif ferent critics. *||v The fact is that' thl^ie financial troubles date back to iB&S, ahd so far as political policies aff^st .finance we must go back prior to t|jjit date. The fact is apparent tbatth6"hard times" of 1893 did not really get to tbe north west until 1895 and J896. In the manufacturing parts of the country, the panic comes quickly and sudden ly, because such work depends direct ly on capital. The farafter dees uot feel it for some longeV-l :time because his crop comes only or he only feels the lack va. year, and capital when jets to people this ijUMtig the year crop of 1895 than in any other yea^of its experi ence. Now to apply in the case or the bursted banks. The cause of their failures can be laid to three thiiigs. First, palpable mismanagement if not dishonesty of their trusted officials, or to the panic of 1893, o^ the hara times among the agriculturllists resulting from the panic of 189&but which have only been fully felt|during the l&st eighteen months. 4ifts really an ex ample, which shows the Intimate re lation between the jftanufacturer of the east and the farmer t»f the west. Any waye of trouble in the east is bonnd to roll to the west in time. We are one people, our interests are iden tical, thereis ho financial east or west, and the WallBtreet magnate and the North Dakota farmer must bang together or they will break sepa rately. If either atlgtnpts to wrong the other,-they wi)|w|ure themselves and at the/best they^nll be kept busy work! ng together t^Mll off the ever recurring periods of Jmrd times •^1 A SAD BE: [VEMENT, •!i.like Governor "being elected a subject of To a young mai Briggs, the honor oj governor was certfcli pardonable, persona] at the very hour of of his ambition, jusi cup filled to overfio orstb%t give -men pleasure, almost ail of taking his oath bl his daughter Stell| uteB after tbe.tiele, news: While the d' lady was not unex] coincidence In the make her death evei siblei than if it hadpiccurred sooner or later.

The suavity of a democratic register of deeds can ea9ily be matched by the politeness of a republican county sup erintendent. The honesty of a pop ulist treasurer, the integrity of a democratic county judge, the upright ness of a republican attorney, and the probity of a popocratic cl.erk of court, are equal virtues in the eyes of the people, and while the man may still hold his political opinions and as sociations yet the officer should be. he longer a politician. Ability, honesty, carefulncs, polite ness, these are the qualifications of the official and these, are, qualities that are expected by the people who elect the officials. The political battle, so far as the county work is concerned, Is over. We sincerly regriet that some were de feated, but none the less, the PION EER EXPRESS can and does cheer fully accept the will of the people and while it may not congratulate the partisan, it can and does, wel come the new officials as county offi cers and to those who come to Pem buia to reside with their families, as well as to thqse whose duties only bring them her occasionally, we, in behalf of the citiaens of Pem bi na, give cordial welcome, and hope and beiieve that the end of their terms will find them well pleased with the people and city to which they have dome.

After reading it, it was handed us by Mr. Hart for answer. At first we may say that Mr. Bolter is a littl? off in his locality. There are no Indians in this county. The Indians ib this state occupy a si miliar backwoods, mountainous and out-of-civilizatlon locality as does Cambria county in Pennsylvania. Cambria county IS full of mountains, coal, iron, forests and "Bolters." It Is one of the few counties in Pennsylvania that occas ionally gives a democratic majority and is not far from tbe place where they still Vote for Andrew Jackson for president But as to squaws being married and given In marriage. The government does not encourage the industry by a bonus, but our inquiring friend might acquire the distinction of being a Suaw-man," ed, by a little judicious energy on his own part, and we would hazard a guess that even without a bonus, that the position sought would yery likely just suit a man of Mr. Bolter's si^e. Among the advantages Mr. Bolter will find in such an alliance is the fact, that it is the Indian custom for the squaw to do all the work both in and out of the tepee. The gentle man of the establishment simply walks around and occasionally goes bunting. The squaw sometimes draws rations from the government and a blanket or two, which he kind ly assists her to eat and wear. We have an idea that such a wife and surrounding conditions would be very suitable to a young man/of such pe culiar inquiring habits as those of Mr. Bolter. If Mr. Bolter will kindly send us his photograph we will forward it to Joe Bolette out at Turtle Mountains and we think that be can find a dusky mate who will make htm happy even without a government bonus.
