W M. GHENKT. - - - Editor. FRIDAY, MARCH 87, 1890 UOOU-BVE. 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 the county. 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 job printer. We retain all unpaid subscriptions. Those of our subscribers who have paid in advance will receive copies of the new paper iu compliance with same. 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 good-bye, W. JI. GTIENEY. Reitablicwii Nlate Convention. To the Republican Electors of Pennsylvania.
