With this issue of the WESTKUX
NEWS-DEMOCUAT the paper enters the
fourteenth year of its existence , which
has been a checkered one. Starting as
the Democratic Blade it finally became
the Gazette , next the Independent , and
then the Valentine Democrat. Jn Sep
tember it was merged with the Western
> cws.and bears its nresent hyphenated
name with modesty and decorum. The
paper speaks for itseli , and for it we
have no apologies to offer , except that
we would make it better were ik not
for our straitened circumstances. This
obstacle however will we hope be
gradually removed , and as our ambi
tions soar no higher than our paperthe
readers of the XE\vs-DKMOcnvr may
rest assured that they will be made
richer as we grow in wealth. Our cir
culation is now larger than that of an } *
other country paper on this line of road ,
and we shall strive to make of every
reader a friend. True to its principles
and its clientele , it will always be found
standing up for the right and the inter
ests of the stockmen and fanners vho
are the "bone ami sinew'1 of the north
west. We are proud of our paper , and
hope that our readers may always be
proud of it too. With this wish \ve be
gin the new volume , and hope to begin
many more the same way.
A letter from a friend in England to
the Shelby Sun contains the following
significent item : "One thing demon
strates the gigantic fraud which the
people of the United States amot : un
consciously submit to , and that is tin-
sugar trust fraud. Here in Eng and
where there is not a pound of sugar
produced , granuh'ted sugar retails at
three halfpense (3 ( centt > ) a pound , but
in the "land of liberty" where sugar is
produced , the government , under the
guise of tariff dues , throws its mantle
of support over one of the worst mo
nopolies that ever cursed a nation , and
the consequence is that the people arc
made to pay between G and 7 cents a
pound. "
