Tiarsday, April 5. 1877. NEWSPAPERS AND NEWSPAPER MEN IN BOCK ISLAND COUNTY. BY J. B. DANFORTH, JR. No. 18. THE AMERICAN LAW REPORTER 1872. Id the fall of 1872 a younjr lawyer, Darned L. G. Johoson, attempted to estab lish a oewspaper, in this locality, for the purpose of reporting decisions of courts, especially Iowa and Illinois courts, and fur nishing such other legal information as should be of use to lawyers, justices of the peace, sheriffs, constables and other offi cers. Two other persons were interested with him in the enterprise, but their names did Dot appear in the paper. The paper was called The American Law Reporter. It was a quarto, of good size and appear ance, the mechanical execution being fioe. The first Dumber was issued in November, 1872. in Davenport, though Mr. Johnson raado his headquarters in this city. After a while he purchased printing material and opened an office in Union block, Wash ington street, (now 18th street), in this city, where the St Elmo restaurant is now kept. The paper was issued weekly for 18 weeks, and ceased for want of support. Mr. Johnson was born in Cook county, this state, Sept. 27, 1847. In 1854 he went to Morrison, Whiteside county, to reside and stuided law there, and ha9 re sided there since that time, with the ex ception of one yer in Oregon, as assistant superintendent of the Burnt River Mining Company. lie attended the law school at Ann Harbor, Mich., and was admitted to the bar in 18C8, by the supreme court of this state. TITE LIBERTY LEAGUE 1873. The printing office in Union block was either leased or purchased by Robert Tompkins and Isaao N. Kirkpatrick, and The American Law Reporter, in its last days, was printed there, also a paper call ed The Liberty League, the first number of which I have. It is dated April 3, 1873, is a handsome eight-column paper, and started with the following announce ment: "This week the publishers take pleas ure in presenting to the public the first number of Ihe Liberty league. It will be devoted to the welfare of the peo ple a sheet anchor to constitutional rights an unflinching opponent to bigoted ignorunce and superstition, and will advo cate the right of a large and respectable class to conduct their business without being subjected, perlodcally, to the on slaughts of carpet-bag legislators, old women, and reformed drunkards. Read the paper and judtte by its contents. "All communications should be addressed to The Liberty League Publishing Com pany, Rock Island, Illinois." Typographically it was a very neat paper Intellectually it was very weak- The name of no man was connected with it and who composed "The Liberty League Publish ing Company" was not known in fact no such organization existed. The paper was started as an organ and-mouth peice of the liquor dealers of this city and adjoining towns, but it hadn't brains enough to be "a hheet-anchor'' for an empty whisky barrel. It lived two or three weeks only, and. John son says, somebody stole the material of his office, run it off in the night, shipped it to Rurlingtou Iowa and sold it. And that was the end of The Liberty League and of the Union Block printing office. NEWSPAPERS AND NEWSPAPER MEN IN HOCK ISLAND COUNTY. BY J, I). PANPORTU, Jr. NO. 13. German Newspapers in Rock Island. THE BEOBACUTER 1857. The first newspaper in Rock Island, printed in the Germanjanguuge was start ed in 1 S."7. It was a small weekly paper called The Jieobachter am Mississippian, It was started by Magnus Mueller, in Charles Buford's block. It was neutral in politics, and was edited by Dr. Fr. Ciolina. The paper was not well sup ported and survived only about ODe year. I have not been able to learn anything regarding the history of Mr, Mueller. Dr. Ciolina was a physician who resided here and practiced his profession some years. He was born at Nierstadt, touthwestern Bavaria, 1817, was educated at the University of Berne, Switzerland, as a doctor of medicine. He came to America in 1838, and to Rock Island sometime previous to 1836. His name appears in the city directory, of 1856, as residing corner of Jefferron and Rock river streets. He was a man of ability, and was a forcible writer and public speaker. He left here many years ago for Chicago, land, if liv ing, is probably there yet. THE CHRONIKDE8 VfESTENS 1860. In December 1859 the material of the Jieobachter office was purchased by Adam and George Leiberknecht, who, on the first day of January 1860.started a weekly newspaper, printed in the German lan guage, called The Chronik des Western. The- name was afterwards changed to Monitor des Wcstcns. This paper, like its predccQBior, was neutral in politics. Though a better paper than its predeces sor, and living longer, it failed to com mand a paying support, and ceased to exist sometime in 18G3. Some months after it was started Adam Leibcrnecht disposed of his interest to his brother George and removed to Gen eseo, where he became a part owner of the Gencseo Republic, and in the publication of which he is still engaged, with the old editor and proprietor of that paper.Gcorge A. Ilobbs, Esq. During the latter part of the existeuce of the paper Mr. Adam Schaaf was con nected with Georgo Leiberknecht in the publication of the Monitor. Ho did not remain long and Mr. L., was the solo owner and conductor for the bal ance of its existence. Of Mr. Schaaf's personal history I have not been able to learn anything. The offico remained idle on the hands of Ua owner for some time and was finally sold and removed' from town. George Leiberknecht removed to Gen eseo and engaged In business, where he still resides. THENEUE VOLKS-ZEITUNG 1875. In the spring of 1875 Mr. Charles C. Wiuter, one of the editors of The West liche Post, of St. Louis, haying been informed that there was a general desire in Rock Island and vicin ity for a newspaper printed in the German language, came here in April of that year for the purpose of con sidering the project. After consulting with the German-born citizens of the town and county be became satisfied that there was a promising field for an enterprising and well conducted German paper here. He accordingly returned to St Louis and made arrangements for material, and returned about the middle of August of that year prepared for the enterprise. On the 30th of August the first number of a handsome semi-weekly paper entitled "Neue Volks-Zeitung," was issued from Zeis's buildiDg on tho northeast corner of 18th street and Second avenue. On the 15th of September the office was removed to the Union office on 18th street. The paper was a success from the start. In politics it is thoroughly independent. Mr. Winter, its editor and proprietor, in his salutatory, said: The Neue Votks-Zeltung will freely discuss all political questions of the (lav in an independent inminur, commending what it thinks pood in both parties and condemning in each what it thinks wrong. And this position it has admirably maintained, discussing every phase of national and local politics with vigor, fair ness, impartiality and perfect independ ence. It is also an enterorisincr rmner for r - tr I - local, town and county news. Mr. Winter was born on April 21, 1842, at Heidelberg, Germany, where he was educated. and attended a course of philolo ey and history at the celebrated university there. He then entered the publishing house of his father. In 1866 he arrived in this country to set op in business for himself. He was first in the book tradet but, from inclinations to literary pursuits, he entered the journalistic profession. He filled editorial positions on several promi nent German-American papers, his last position before coming here having been that of city editor of the Westliche Post, the celebrated organ of Carl Schurz. Ever since his anival in this country Mr. Winter has been a contributor to the American press. Ha wrote a series of essays and reviews on European literature for the Xation. To several literary papers in Germany he contributed sketches of American life which were widely reprinted by German papers in this country. Under his enterprising and able man agement his paper seems to be flourishing and if properly supported by the German Americans of the city and county will become one of our permanent and useful institutions. This closes the history of the press of this city, to the pres3nt time. The next article will commence with the history of the newspapers of Molinc.

W ork done quick, Leave orders at The Argus Counting Room, opposite the he I'ost Umc. In the Sweet By-ana-By cannot but be the happy thought as the fortunate recipient of the "Rocky Moun tain Tourist" scans its wonderful attractive pages and peruses its fascinating descrip tions. Most beautifully embellished with new and highly artistic engravings, its letter-press a model of typographical richness, and the arrangement throughout simply superb, the Rock Mountain Tourist is worthy of comparison with Picturesque America or 'Die Aldine. It is written in gossipy, graphic style, covering details of the tour through the garden of the South west (the Arkansas Valley, Southern Kan sas), to the very heart of the Alps of America the Itocky Mountains. Jaunts are made to all the famous resorts of Col orado, the remarkable ruins, the springs, the mines, and,' in short, to every point of interest to tourist,agriculturalist,capitalist. miner, and invalid. With the Tourist,the tan Juan Uuide keeps fitting company and the two publications are mailed tree to all writing for one or both to T. J. Ander son, fopeka, Kansas. SPECIAL 1CTICES. M A T?T?

Made at the oldest Anvil manufactory in this country. All English Anvils, after a time, become hollowing on the face by continued hammering in use, on account of the fibrous nature of ihe wrought iron causinL' it to "settle," nnder the steel. But the body of the Eagle Anvil being cf crys talMzed iron, such settling cannot occur; and the steel face therefore remains perfectly true. Also, it hag the great advantage, that belnjr of a more solid material, and, consequently, with lets re bound, the piece forced receives the FULL effect of the hammer, instead of a part of it being wasted oy tue reDounu, as with a wrought iron Anvil. Wore work can therefore be done on this Anvil with a hammer one-fifth lighter than required for a wrought iron Anvil which is more elastic. The working surface is in one piece of Jbssop's BKrT Tool, Cast Steil, accurately ground, hard ened and given the proper temper for the heav work. The horn is of tongh untempered stee!
