Willi the issue of today The Tolervain begins the second year of V
existence. One year ago today, ngu.ust the advice of sonic of our best
liiends, and, we confess, with some misgivings on our part, we launc hed
a daily paper in Lakeland. Hay aftcn'uy since that time, we have told the
story of the progress, current happenings, social and business life of this
community, fairly, fully, truthfully r.nd Impartially. The year just passed
has been the year of Lakeland's greatest growth and expansion. While c
are not so vain as to claim great credit for this advancement, we bclievo
it will be admitted that the dally paper has contributed as tnticii as any
other single factor.
It Is in n0 self-vaunting spirit that wa repeat what has been so often
stated during the past year, particularly by visitors, and by the presB of
this and other States that no town In th;. country of double the popu
Irtion has a more creditable newspaper than Lakeland. It. is the largeht
Florida daily published' outside t! few big sea-coast, cities; it is the
only newspaper in the interior of Florida carrying Associated Press dis
patches; and we believe th::t no sacrifice of modesty is involved in the
statement that in its general service. In all departments local, cditoriid
and social it lills its mission to (he snlisfaction. of the people of this
And it is upon this satisfactory service alone that it lias attempted
to build a success. The paper Is in no sense an "organ;" it is absolutely
independent, and free to advocate th,. (liinus that may seem best for the
community, or to condemn things ln.rtful, without let or hindrance from
any source. It has the confidence of its readers, because it has never de
ceived them or misrepresented things to them. It's motto has been, "De
liver the goods." That it has lived up to it is evidenced by the fact that
the paper is taken and read and pai l for by ! per cent of the families
of this community, and that it seldort lows a .subscriber other than by
death or removal.
During the year its circulation lias increased threefold, and It now
enjoys a very creditable advertising patronage. The responsiveness exist
ing between the paper and the reader renders it peculiarly valuable to
ti e advertiser, whose experience with it. as a medium for obtaining re
sults has, without exception, been most gratifying.
Less than eight years ago the proprietor of the Telegram entered
the newspaper field in Lakeland. Tliore was turned over to him a w.a
four-page weekly, from which the present daily and weekly have, be
evolved. There was one stand of typi and a negro-power press, fro.i
which the present modern mechanical plant has been built up. An aged,
partially paralyzed printer and a little boy was th0 "force;" now there are
twenty people on the payroll, including some of the most skillful work
men In the State. Then our expense for labor would have been covered
by $50 a month; now the single item of labor approximates $1,000
, This growth has been accomplished by unremitting toil, by an am
bition to build up an institution creditable to the community, and, per
haps, by some aptitude for the newspaper business on the part of thosa
who directed the enterprise. But these things, indispensable aa they ar;,
would have heen powerless to produce BUch results without the respon
siveness and co-operation of the generous and public splritel poonle who
have put their shoulder to the wheel and made Lakeland ila where
big things are beginning to be the order. We have brr jbl to put
-can men uur wur& uecause we nac uvea among a of-op?'. .
struggles for our own and the community's betterment "f
generous in sympathy and in material assistance.
We believe In Lakeland and in attempting to give hef
daily paper at a time when th0 success of such a ventui
problematic, we have demonstrated our faith by our works!
that her record of progress, splendid r.s It has been, is only n enriost
of the much greater things the next few years, have in store for he?.
And, as In the past, always w0 win strive to be found in the forefront
cf the onward march, striking a blow for the right, and for the thlns tV
make for progress; meanwhile feeling that we ni-ht -jmcrd the l-verid
we have been carrying at the head of this paper t'ie part vev. - tint it
