With this issue the Adams County
News passes into history and its suc
cessor, The Washington State Journal,
will make its initial bow to the public
next week. It will be the aim of the
Journal to give its readers the news
within its territory without fear or
favor and regardless of the wishes or
"influence" of any man or set of men.
In matters political we shall endeavor
to at all times stand squarely and firm
ly for the interests of the common peo
ple, which means Republicanism of the
Roosevelt brand. In matters civic our
aim will be to point out and expose
extravagance and wrong-doing on the
part of the official servants of the
people regardless of political or reli
Being comparatively unused to news
paper work we neither claim or expect
to do impossible things; we fully real
ize our infallibility and our liability to
err; but whatever energy and ability we
possess will be put forth in an honest
effort to place before the reading public
a newspaper in the strictest sense, and
one of which no citizen of Eastern
Washington need feel ashamed. We
realize that this can not be done in a
day or a week or even month, and
this initial issue must not be taken as
a specimen of what the "Journal" is to
l)e. We did not take over the "News"
until Monday forenoon and it has been
simply impossible, in the very brief
time at our disposal, to put out the
style paper we desired our initial num
ber to be, but our next Wednesday's
issue will, we hope, wear its permanent
dress and be more in keeping with our
ideal of what the Journal will eventual
Commercially, we intend giving the
patrons of our advertising department
an'advertising medium second to none
in the Inland Empire. Starting out
with a circulation aliove a thousand—
this week's issue being 1250 copies
advertisers will readily see the advan
tage of patronizing a paper that is able
to, and will give them value received
in full. Our job department is now
well up among the best in the country
and our intention i» to make it the best.
Our home will be in the old Adams
County News building where we will
be glad to see all our friends and where
we are rigging up a mountain battery
for the accommodation of our enemies.
J. M. Bennington will have charge of
the editorial department and A. G.
Hinckley will be business manager.
In every paper in Adams county
publishing the Republican ticket, says
the Lind Leader, the candidate for
Justice of the Peace for Lind is given
as Dr. Merriman." As Postmaster
