Therefore it did 'insult its readers" when in its editorial two Weeks ago it assumed in argu ent that they were the same thing and overned by the same conditions. It ,ve statistics first on mined tin,- then it proceeded to draw conclusions from nese statistics on the manufacture of rtiware and tinplate, which it now says is an' insult to intelligence to, consider the same thing. The Pink Paper says we are mist-iken to the rise in price of tinware and that livo or three years ago it raised 40 per |$nt and says that the tariff is to blame it the increased price. But the census pport to which the Pink Paper referred for its statistics, says, the price,of pig in Jhe foreign markets from which jr manufacturersdraw their total sup plies, increased in price from 14 cents to I c&its per pound irom the year 1898 the year 1903. Now, admitting that rare did increase in price 40 per cent fa three years ago, the tariff liad en in existence for ten pr twelve years levious with no rise in frice of tinware, just about the time raw material Rubied in value the price of tin ware is aimed by the P. ft' to have risen. We Rll not "insut our readers" but let them »w their own conclusipusi. .' Pink Paper also says that the tiuv lis tp blan|e^r the tin tirust. Well, in Vway th^via cwtainly pna.

Second District, v- 3 In this sort of reasoning the democrats ienore their own time worn argument for free trade by which they have always de nied that protective tarifi will build fac tories. They also ignore another great fact that in many cases and notably in the case of tinplate, the tariff destroyed a monoply held by Ehglish manufactur ers previous to the establishment of fac tories in this|coUntry. (See census re port referred to.) They also ignore a third fact that the greatest and worst trusts and monoplies of this country are in products not affected in any way by the tarifi, among which are tbe Standard Oil monoply'and the Meat trust. They also forget that trusts exist just as largely in countries like England that have no protective tsrifl. 4 It may be true however that in the case of tin plate and some other manu factures the people have a weapon in the tarifi by which we, may be able to control the trusts in these particular pro ducts. In that case the people without reference to party, will be willing to use the club. But we do not want to destroy the business. The factory is all right. The trust is the wrong. The P. P. says it is wrong for 80,000, 000 people to pay 15,000 Americans for making tinplat for us. It would prefer to pay 15,000 Welsh people to do the same work as they used to do it We prefer that American factories do it If it must be a trust we prefer an American trust to the Welsh trust that was and is in existence. KIND WORDS. We copy at some considerable length from other papers this week some com' ments on the silver anniversary edition issued two weeks since. While the very pleasant and kindly words of our many journalistic friends make our hearts warm with pleasure, yet we have not placed them in our columns as feathers in our cap, but in part-because we be lieve that our readers will be glad with us for the frfendly expressions for the paper, which is as much theirs as it is the publishers.' Besides this, most of the our editorial friends have also added various comments in reference to the past quarter century in North Dakota, which will be of interest to the general reader.' Several private letters have also been received by the publishers from some of the old pioneers, which have been very pleasing to us. The kind re ception of the special edition bas been ample payment for the trouble and 'ex pense of its preparation. In the many exchanges received we may have missed some editorial comment, but we hope and believe that these copied express the general feeling, which on the part of the publishers, is gratefully reciprocated to every paper in the state. It would be a very conservative esti mate to say that Pembina county has lost a millton bushels of wheat this sea son by flooding. At present prices that would mean a loss of from $700,000 to $800,000. One-fifth of that sum spent in systematic and scientific ditching would have saved most of the loss of this year, besides the losses of years to come. WORDS OF SILVER. Hie biennial report of Jud LaMoure's retirement fiom the state senate is fil ling up space in the dull season. Mr La Moure sajt in the lower house of the -ter ritorial, legislative assembly which met at Yankton in December, 1872, and was in «ith^r the council or the house at most of the subsequent sessions at Yank ton and Bismarck. As senator firpin the Fii^t district his name has headed the listvat all of the feight seinions since stHtehobd. But thisUtem was really in tended to be about the Pembina Pioneer Express. That paper celebrated its twenty-filth birthday last week and pub lished a photo-engravure reproduction of i&.first tssqe,:pf which oaly one copy is kn* ii to be in existence. Pembina and ud LaMoure are inseparable and fiis general store take*, a "double halP' dis play ad. A local item runs:—"We l&ri? that'Mr. fud LaMoqre 'bas resigned Bis fou| supplement ol mof$ than or-, position, af'Mounted |nsoector, of Cusvdinary uitasrest tunijpodty numbed ot us —Mrs. A. Boydston, Atttilson, toms. It is to be regretted that we should lose the services of this popular officer." A quarter of a century later, fellows who have foi%ht the old man hard in days gone by are hoping his legislative days are not over. That Pembina .Pioneer of August, 1879, is interesting in the ex treme—and Jud was an old timer in Da kota then! How he must laugh at the bricks so often thrown at him by chaps like the writer, who were not born when he was sitting in that shanty capitol at Yankton thirty-two years ago. But con gratulations to the Pioneer Express on its silver jubilee so cleverly observed.— Sheldon Progress. Last week the Pioneer Express of Pembina gave the celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary a peculiarly unique observance by the issuing a fac simile of the first issue of the pap r, dat ng back to August, 7th, 1879. Its old time readers, especially the earlier residents of Pemina county, will preserve this souvenir as it has an historical value they are well able to appreciate. The idea of Messrs. Wardwell &- Thompson, the publishers, is distinctly original and brings them a prominence and well earn ed high regard among their contempor aries and well wishes of the future. May the Pioneer-Express long continue to en joy its large measure of confidence and patronage among the readjng public of northern North Dakota.—Langdon Dem ocrat. Tne Pembina Pioneer Express begins volume 26, and in celebration of the event it issued a supplement which is fac simile of the first issue. Strictly speaking the celebration is a few weeks ahead of time, which fact the paper ex plains by the statement that while the first issue of the paper was published on August 7, 1879, the newspaper yeiar con sists of .52 weeks, and as the calendar year overruns this a little, in the quarter of a century ot its existence the paper has gained abdut a month. The Pioneer was started by P. A. Gatchell and M. A. Brown, and after several changes it pass ed into the hands of the present propri etors, Messrs. Wardwell & Thompson, in 1887, and it has been published bv them since that time. As is stated, edi torially in the present issue, the aim ot the publishers has been to give the people a good country paper all the time. In this they have certainly succeeded, It is clean and straightforward, and it has original views on questions of local and general interest which it is not afraid to make public. The editorial work ot the paper, has fallen to Mr. Wardwell, who is a"good writer and an exceedingly pleasant man to meet. The Pioneer Ex press is the Herald's junior by a few Weeks. ,In the past twenty-five years the two papers have had many tilts, some of then! quite animated, but their battles have always been fought with good feel ing, and the Herald expects these pleas ant relations to be maintained for at least another twenty-five years.—Grand Forks Herald. The Pioneer Express is twenty-five years old, which makes it one of the earl iest established papers in the Valley. Last week in honor of the atyiiversary of the establishment of the paper Wardwell & Thompson issued a twelve page paper two pages of which were given up to a phpto-engrayure of the first issue ol the Pembina Pioneer issued by Gatchell and Brown on the 7th of August, 1879 This reproduction of the first paper ever print ed in Pembina county contains many in teresting things which makes it of great historic value, and the copy which came to the Times-will be carefully treasured with our own early files. The present editors have owned and operated the pa per^ince April 1887. The Pioneer Ex-' press was the only paper printed in Pem bina county when the Times w^s estab lished in June 1882, and since August 1883 has been carefully read by the pres ent editor of the Times. While the two papers have frequently not agreed about men or measures, there has always been a tnost friendly feeling between the own ersoif tfce two papers, and the Times man considers, the Pioneer Express one Of its most yaiued exchanges, and wish es lor it and its publishers another iwen ty-tive years ot prosperity and progress. —St Thomas Times.

Tbe Pembina Pioneer Express issued last week a supplement which was a re production of the first issue of the Pem bina Pioneer bearing date August 7, 1879. This is in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the founding of that pap er. It is atypical ''old timer" and con tains many interesting items. The Northern Express was established in 1861 and in '83 it was consolidated with the Pioneer under the name of Pioneer Express.
