Introductory....This journal shall at all times and upon all subjects say just what the editor thinks, no matter how much or how violently such views may conflict with the time-worn customs or stereotyped notions of that undefinable faction of the human sum total which we call "society" would be to give the best statement possible of what we propose to do....A very large proportion of the space in our columns shall be given to subjects purely literary ? good stories, lively miscellany, interesting essays, etc. Everything pertaining to the field of science shall also receive a fair share of attention....Politically, The Freeman will have no party predilections, though we shall always discuss freely, and as candidly as possible, all political topics which commend themselves to the editor as worthy of consideration. Socially, we shall advocate such measures of reform as we think calculated to bring the greatest good to the greatest number....Religiously, The Freeman will not be a Christian paper; not even in that broad and comprehensive sense which includes as nominally Christian those papers that serve the devil all the week and publish church notices on Sunday....
The presswork of The Freeman is done on the steam job press of the Leavenworth Commercial, and the clear impression upon its pages reflects credit upon the superior facilities of that establishment.
