Saturday witnessed the last publication of the Plymouth Tribune and .
the Plymouth Chronicle as separate newspapers. Beginning Monday
January 9th, a -new newspaper will make its appearance in Plymouth
The two Republican newspapers have been combined by Samuel E. Boys
publisher of the Chronicle and will be called THE PLYMOUTH RE-
This is the last issue 'of this newspaper under the management of
Hendricks and Company. . . "'
The final union of the two Republican newspapers has been accom-
plished, after efforts toward consolidation exetnding for several months
past. The combination of the circulation of both papers, has been
the ideal of both managements for a long time, and h; been finally
accomplished, with prefect satisfaction toward the publishers of both.
The union of the two publications, will be a date of importance in
the editorial history of Plymouth and Marshall county. Many difficult
situations such as advertising patronage by business. men, political con-
dition, etc. will at once" be corrected by the consolidation, which was
deferred only by the inability to reach satisfactory terms.
The Plymouth Tribune, was instituted by Hendricks and Co. in the
year 1900, as a successor to the Plymouth Republican, and Plymouth
Evening News. '
During the time, that these publications were issued by the retiring
manasmcnt, every effprt has been. made, to give the residents of Ply-
mouth and Marshall county, the best newspaper which has' ever been
published here. The Tribune has made many enemies by its attitude
on -various public questions, but it has always stood and fought for
what it deemed was the right. As a consequence, we believe that the
Tribune has a host of friends, more staunch and true ' than its most
bitter "disbelievers." To this army of friends our subscribers and
patrons we heartily introduce, and recommend our successor, and late
contemporary, Mr. Samuel E. Boys who will continue to serve you
with the best Plymouth newspaper, the Plymouth Republican.
The present management will in all probabilities, leave Plymouth
With the idea in mind, of seeking, a larger field, with an increased
chance of opportunity four our children, our. intentions are to secure
a newspaper in a larger city. . f
The year 1910, has been the most prosperous year in the history of
the Tribune. As publishers of the Tribune, we believe that we have
advanced the paper to its utmost and with confident hopes of high
prospects, we consign the newspaper to the new management, The
Plymouth Republican. To our friends and .past .patrons, we extend
our heart-felt thanks, for support and patronage, so generously be-
stowed, and wish all a happy and prosperous new year. And so with
malice toward none, and good will toward all, we say Gccd-bye..

German Township Compelled
Selection of Fries. ,
Choice of Commissioners for Infirmary
"Superintendent Gives Much Dis
satisfaction Among Democrats.
The choice of William Fries of
Bremen as successor to Peter J.
Kruyer as superintendent of the
county farm seems not to have
given the best satisfaction, accord
ing to comments among democrats
since the election.
It is said the party wanted a
young man without a family, and
Mr. Flies is over fifty and has five
children. It is said further that
they wanted a farmer and that Mr.
Fries is a clerk in a hardware store
and not a man of proper -caliber to
handle the job as it should be.
Moreover, the thing which de
cided his selection was neither his
favor with the commissioners nor
his fitnecs for the place, but instead
it was a cold, raw threat from the
democrats of German township
which amounted to compulsion in
the matter. There was nothing
else for the commissioners to do but
elect Fries.
TKey voted for twenty-four bal
lots to make ehoving and then did
what they intended to do at the
Tne German township politicians
put it up something like this, eo it
is said by those on the inside.
"German township gave the
ticket oyer 200 majority, and if you
don't give us this place we will go
republican in the next election."
That was what turned the trick.
The feeling of the commissioners is
shown, however, by the following
yotes which the different candidates

Commissioners Lee and Thayer
cast the votes that elected Fries on
the 24th ballot.
It is said by Sarber's friends that
he had the strongest and best
recommendations of any of the
candidates. The vote 9hows how
ever that Cram was the strongest
candidate as he received the most
yotes and was in reality the com
