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.

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.

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.

Eagle Anvil Works
Established 1843.
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!
The cast uteel surface is warranted to be
oughly welded and not to come off.
