SipSHI Canadian Free Press. UH I Lima Eilm td rnfMm. $1.50 FEB YEAR IN ADVANCE. PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY AT CANADIAN, TEXAS. Salutatory. With this issue we begin the publi- cation of the Canadian Free Press. Although it is not a metropolitan sheet in size, we hope it will accom- plish its object—to build up the home of its birth and to give its readers the latest and most reliable news of the Panhandle each week. We will en- deavor to labor hard for the welfare of our new home and Hemphill county. In politics the Free Press will be strictly independent, believing that in a new country all political strife should be avoided, as in small communities such strifes always engender hard feel- ings. and have a tendency to retard progress—until such time then as the county shall demand a political exposi- tor we Mill be neutral. Knowing that we have one of the finest counties in the state of Texas, and soon will have one of the largest cities in the state, we desire the sup- port of the wh...

: f - To Our Patrons and the Public Generally. We are so well pleased with the pat- ronage given us by the citizens of Canadian and Hemphill county that we intend to make the Fkee Press an eight page paper the next issue, to continue that size until such time as we can get a few more advertisers, then to enlarge it to a full-sized, met- ropolitan journal. We always intend to keep pace with the city, but do not intend to overdo ourselves in the news- paper line—to start in with a grand flourish and "fall down." but to "go slow but sure.1' We wish to impress upon the minds of our patrons that although the Fkee Pkess looks small in size, in contains more reading ma- terial to the point and in relation to the country and people than some of the "large"* papers. We started the Fkee Pkess when there were only two or three frame houses in town, without only hopes for the future. We have come to stay, to work early and late for Canadian and Hemphill county.

Last week's issue of the Texas Pan- handle, a paper published at a little seven-up village near Fort Elliott, Texas, contained a communication by an anonymotis writer, who is ashamed to sign his own name to his article. Of all the contemptible persons on the face of God's green earth, the anony- mous writer takes the premium. A man never seeks to cover up his doings or writings by a fictitious name, but comes out in a fearless, manlv way. It is the "thing'* which resembles man in form, but who is in reality a treacher- ous cur, who attempts at all times to strike (?) unseen. * This horse-chestnut says that we are "blessed with immense wings of imag- ination, but a poor head for facts." and says "we boast of the noble liberal- ity of officers who contemplate build- ing a $50,000 court house within three...
