On September 20 the County Commission was meeting, but then adjoumed until the next day upon hearing of the death of President James A. Garfield. Between November 23-26 the county commis- sioners approved the jail cells and authorized the county treasurer to pay the Pauley Bros. $3460 plus $236 freight and cartage on the cells and twenty dollars for T-bars on the cells. On December 9, 1881, the "Northern Express" published by Robert H. Young in Drayton, be- came the county's second newspaper; the "Pem- bina Pioneer" was the first. On December 9, 1881, the following were the Pembina County officers, as found in the newspaper, the "Northern Express," published in Drayton: Commissioners--Frank Aymond, Neche; F.C. Myrick, Pembina; John Bechtel, Cavileer; H.R. Vaughn, Pembina, Clerk and Register of Deeds; T.W. Gaffney, Pembina, in his second term as Treasurer; Charles J. Brown, Pembina, but originally from Virginia, in his third term as Sheriff Robert Tweedlie, Pembina, Judge of Probate Ezra A. Healy, Drayton, Superintendent of Schools; L.O. McGuin, Pembina, Surveyor; and Adolf Carl, Carlisle, Assessor. The jailer was Philip White, who had previ- ously worked at the Manitoba Penitentiary. Tweedlie had moved his office from Cavileer Street to the new court house; he was the first county official to move in. The January 13, 1882, "Northern Express" in- dicated he was also the Clerk of District Court. On December 15 the county commissioners in- spected the court house and jail. It was 38x43x30 with 10x20 pediments on the front and rear. On the first floor were the offices of the Register of Deeds, Sheriff, Clerk of Court, and Treasurer. The upper floor had the court room, which was 36x40x 15, and two jury rooms. The jail addition was 24x42. The jail cells were on the first floor. The second floor had a room for female prison- ers and one for the insane. The court house was topped by a 30-foot high cupola. On December 17 T.W. Gaffney reported that the court house and jail were in good shape. The County Commission then voted to accept them from the contractor Herman Weber and autho- rized the county treasurer to pay him the contract- ed amount plus $418.58 for extra work. The com- missioners also authorized payment for stoves for the court house to O.S. Hagerman. On January 5, 1882, David Dick was appointed by the Pembina County Commission as assessor, replacing Adolf Carl, who had resigned. At that meeting the Commission voted to pay Judson LaMoure $99 for rent of the county building to December 16, 1881, and seven dollars to H.A. Murrel for moving county furniture to the new court house. On February 17, 1882, R.H. Young published the first edition of the "Northern Express" in its new location, Pembina.
