A Popular Newspaper, a Welcome Vis
itor in every Home. Within
the reach of every one.
The managers of The Post take pleasure in
announcing the course of this paper upon en
tering ita thirteenth year of existcuce.
Thk Post is known to the poople of the west
as the uncompromising opponent of wrong and
the fearless defender of the right. It has, du
ring tbe Presidential excitement, and in tbe
stirring events of this Pall in Chicago and over
the whole country, taken a position which has
gained for it thousands of friends in tbe Loyal
People of tbe Northwest.
It baa advocated the success of the
REPUBLICAN PARTY !
But at the same time it has in no manner ex
tenuated tbe faults or errors of those within
that party guilty of oversight or transgression.
It has never turned aside from what it believed
to be the path of duty, nor mislod its readers
or tbo public. As in the past, bo in tbe future,
The 1'oht will bo found in politics to favor the
carrying out to tbe letter tbe Constitutional
Amendments that were tbe outgrowth of the
war ; and of such legislation as will rsetore this
country to prosperity and financial soundness,
witboui too suddenly or arbitrarily shocking
its industrial pursuits.
It bolieve tbo Republican Party is capable of
doing that, and will continue to support it so
long as it honestly endeavcrs to fulfill its
In matters affecting tbe local welfare, The
Post baa been iu advance of all Chicago con
temporaries in defending tbe rights of tbe peo
ple and speaking out againt-t official wroug-do-icg.
Its course in the past is full guarantee
to the public that it will maintain tbe same
course in the future.
IN ALL ITS DEPARTMENTS
The Post will be emphatically A Newspaper,
and wbile being a daily reflex of events, it will,
nevertheless, maintain a character for decency
and good taste that will make it an acceptable
visitor in every well-ordered home. Its col
umns will be pureed of every indecency, and no
money can or will buy any of its space for tbe
praise of anv illegitimate or immoral calling.
In order to meet tbe necessities of tbe times,
tbe prices of Tbe Poet have been fixed at tbe
following low rates, wbicb makes it by far tbe
cheapest newspaper in tbe Northwest :

PROPHET NOT WITHOUT nONOR
IN HIS OWN COUNTRY.
The Opinion of those Right on
We don't give this for aa fait accompli, but
it id very strongly rumored' that Cedar RapidB
is to be tbe balf-wat station between Chicago
and Council I'lutTs.
If this is to be, and some experiments have
been made to that end, we suppose it is on ac
count of the supenor condition of the road. A
trip on the steel railed and well balasted road
is not any more now, if as much, wear and tear
on tbe employes and machinery to a train from
Chicago to Cedar Rapids, 218 miles, as it was
on tbe iron rails from Chicago to Clinton, 138
miles, in the olden time.
It is not necessary for us to say that the C.
A N. W. R'y is a first claos road in every partic
lar, that it ridee as easy "as sitting In a rocking
chair," that its coaches are parlors, that its em
ployes are the most polite and affable gentle
men the traveling publio can meet or will meet
in a life time of travel tbe espnt de corps of
tbe employes, if we may say so, is at a high
staodaard. We say we need not say this in a
newspaper, it is self evident to every traveler
on the road. But in the future these axe to be
increased; we suppose the speed will be increas
ed, and, if possible, the superb trains will be
more superb. There is to be no train more com
plete, either for comfort or safety, leave the
world's commercial metropolis for the (iolden
Gate, than the great trains on the Chicago A
North-Western Railway tbe only company run
ning out of Chicago that has a road so reliable
that tbey are not afraid to run at any speed ca
pable of being attained by engines of the most
improved construction, run with tbe hand of
iron nerje, and a bead of brains, without any
fear of accident or inconvenience.
Every employe on the road feels a personal
interest in the North-Western Railway it's tbe
"clipper" road in tbe West, aod so far as any
thing he can do it will continue so to be.
This is the Trans-Continental link from the
Great Lakes to the Great Missouri Kiver.
The old-time traveler speaks in high glee of
the "ease and comfort" of tbse davs of steel
in contrast with the pioneer days of this pio
neer road in the days of iron. The comforts
of travel on the Nortb-Westsrn Railway are in
every traveler's mouth from tbe Atlantic to the
Pacific. It must be a proud compliment to the
efficient management, and that is tbe reasou
every officer or employe feels so happy in
