This is the last issue of The Tribune in its present form. A consolidation of The Humboldt Enterprise and The Tribune has been effected , the two properties being : owned and controlled by The Tribune Publishing : Company - pany , an incorporation with a paid up capital stock of $6,000. $6,000.The The stock is held b } ' fifty-two stock holders most of whom live in the eastern half of the county and all of whom are among : the leading republicans of the county. The paper will be published in Falls City under the title "The Falls City Tribune. " It will be equal in size to the largest paper published in the count } ' , and we hope to make it the superior of all in reading matter. It will have a guaranteed circulation of more than 2,000 subscribers , which is by far the largest circulation of any county paper. The subscription price ' will continue at $1.00 per year. The advertising rates will be fifteen cents an inch except for contract work which will be twelve and one-half cents an inch. The paper will be republican in politics. The consolidation of these two papers was con- sumated at the recent republican county convention , and was in response to a universal demand among the republicans - publicans of the county to have a republican paper published at the county seat which would meet the requirements of the party in size , equipment and circu- lation. The Tribune is now prepared to compete with all competition in all things pertaining to newspaper work and job printing. We ask to be judged by our accomplishments and not our promises.
