FRIDAY, MARCH 87, 1890
Victor Hugo, late forcmau of the
Dushore Review, has purchased the
REPUBLICAN plant, and will take
possession of the same on Monday
morning, March 30lh, 1896. Victor
will change the political complexion
of the paper and tnake it a strong
advocate of Democracy.
It is now nearly fourteen years
since we took possession of the RE
PUBLICAN*, an experiment that was
considered hazardous by many, and
we confess the adventure was made
not without many misgivings on our
part, as we were without capital and
must depend upon earnings of the
establishment to meet current ex>
penses. That the struggle proved
a hard one and oftentimes discour
aging, it is needless to recount to
those who have had experience in
the newspaper business. But the
busiuess grew, and to-day the REN
PUBLICAN is one of the most pros
perous printing establishments in
It is with unfeigned regret that
we bid our readers -'good-bye." Our
interest in the city on the mountain
will not be diminished in severing
connection with the REPUBLICAN,
but wc shall ever rejoice in the con
tinued growth and prosperity of old
Laporte, and we cin assure our
readers that under the new manage
ment of the material a breezy and
newsy democratic paper will be issu
ed and will da, valiant service in ad
vocating the material interests of
Laporte, and if the support it is en
titled to is vouchsafed will prove a
most potent factor in the accomplish
ment of the ambitions of our peo
ple. Mr. Hugo informs us that he
will make the new paper some larger
than the present REPUBLICAN, lie
will take this stop about the Ist of
May. Victor is a practical artistic
We retain all unpaid subscriptions.
Those of our subscribers who have
paid in advance will receive copies
of the new paper iu compliance with
We have given the matter some
thought and had partly made up our
mind not to say anything about the
usage we have received at the hands
of a few republicans of the county
who style themselves Quay people.
It is a well known fact throughout
the county that the editor of the
REPUBLICAN took an active part in
the Quay-Hastings fight last
mer and assisted to win our delegate
to the State convention in harmony
with the Hastings' people. This
was perhaps the hardest blow that
ever befell the would-be leaders of
our party, but they were compelled
to take their medicine, Since this
memorable encounter and defeat on
their part they have held us respon
sible for their downfall, and know
ing that we were poor in pocket ins
augurated a scheme to force us out
of business. They formed a stock
company for the purpose ot raising
cash with which to purchase our
plant. We understand they were
going to raise a certain amount and
force us to accept their figures or
'else establish a new Republican paper
in the county. Of course we would
not have accepted their figures un
less sufficiently large, but when we
considered ihe establishment of a
new paper, and realizing that be
cause ot our true republicanism in
the past, we could expect nothing
from the democrats and with the
Quayites opposing us, our future
outlook was not very inviting,
hence we were forced to sell and
chose our bidder. In justice to my
self we desire to say to our republi
can friends who stood by us in this
disgraceful scheme, that not one of
the number connected in the plot to
oust us from our business called on
lis and requested, whether we desir
ed to sell our plant, or our price.
Our friends will apprehend that this
was sufficient reason for us to look
up a buyer, notwithstanding the des
•ire you may have for a party paper.
In taking leave of the REPUBLI
CAN we can not rojrain from express
lag heartfelt thanks to thogo who
have so generously supported us, l>y
their patronage, as well as for their
encouraging expressions of interest
and approval which have encouraged
us in the work we have done. With
these few remarks we bid our readers
