FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, JUNE 29, 1903. to the following of the policy laid down by Its founder—of printing a clean local paper which can be placed without fear in the hands of every member of the home, of standing in the front rank at all times In defense of Freeland and its interests and of treating all local sub jects impartially and honestly in its colli mns. To the large number of subscribers whoso names are on the Tribune's books, many of which have been there since the lirst issue of the paper, the publishers are grateful for the support given and hope to deserve its continu ance as fully in the future as in the past. The same can bo said of those advertisers who have for years used the Tribune as a medium to extend their business. Without the generous patronage ac corded us during the past the Tribune could not have attained its position as leader of the local news field, and it is the hope of the publishers that the pleasant relations existing between the Tribune and Its patrons may continue Indefinitely. On our part we give as surance that we will continue to publish the best paper that the field and oppor tunity will permit, and it will appear as often as the patronage accorded it will justify.
