cannot be accomplished so long as some

against each other on personal as well as
political giound. So with news jour

attention and consideration of every true

when the limited patronage is considered
that i usually bestowed upon newspa

difference to the publishers whether it is
given to one good journal, or whether it
is divided among two or more papers

or locality. The journals referred to
were running at a loss, aud why continue
the work when the people were not in
the least benefitted thereby, but on the
other hand were asked to sustain two
party oigans when one was all they could
consistently maintain. The fact cannot

to change? By your suffrage, lepubli

The Ford County Republican has
ceased to exist, and in its stead springs
up the Globe-Republican, which sig
uities a consolidation of the Globe Live
Stock Journal and the Foiu County
Republican. Duriug the past two and
one-half years we have exerted every
power within our limited means to give
to the public a newspaper worthy of their
patronage, aud feel that they have ap
preciated our feeble efforts, and hope
they will in the future favor the Globe
Republican with whatever patronage
they may have. With these few brief
remarks, aud thanking the people of
Dodge City and Ford county for the in

show up for official positions a year or

of the republican parry in the county can
not be attributed to the work they have

Compliments thus paid without solici

TOWANDA, Pa. Oct. 8, 1889.
To Mr. Andrew Russel, chairman re
publican county committee.
I am pleased to learn that D. L. Swee
ney, now of Ford county, Kansas, was
nominated for sheriff. I resided for
many years in the same town with him.
I was for many years chairman of our
republican county committee while he
was here. I knew Mr. Sweeney as an
active, energetic aud always reliable le
publican, so fiom principle; while be
was always modest and kind to political
opponents yet no man was more firm
than he in his political faith. He was
always of assistance to us. It gives his
old friends great gratification on the
honor conferred upon him by his adopted
grate and can assure all that the confi
dence reposed in him will be well be
stowed. Hoping that he may be suc
cessful. I am vouis tiulv,

The long looked for and the much
talked of consolidation of the Ford
County Republican aud the Globe Live
Stock Journal was finally accomplished,
and the two offices are now merged iuto
one. with headquarters in the Globe
building. The friends of the two papers
so consolidated will want no better rea
son for this action, we imagine, than to
be assured that it is in the interest of the
people; that it means the upbuilding of
a better newspaper for our city, county
and state; better by way of compari
son than either of the former journals
ever could claim to have been. It will
endeavor to keep apace with the spirit
and progress of our people as we may
be enabled to understand them; battling
for right and justice; defending the
honor and integrity of our people when
unjustly assailed, as well as cautioning
them against wrong-doing, thus assum
ing to aid them in their daily walks of
life. Politically it will be uncompro
misingly republican, stronger, if possible,
than either of the former papers were,
or the strength of both combined. The
friends and patrons of the former, we
hope may become the friends and pat
rons of the new paper. The manage
ment of the Globe-Republican will be
iu competent hands. An experienced
journalist will be at the wheel to guide
and direct the new craft through the
tossing billows of the journalistic sea
with safety, aud land hei iu a safe aud
