Removal to Kirwin. We will not issue the Independent next week as we have made arrangements to move to Kirwin, and will have to miss one or more issues to give time and opportunity for the removal. Our reasons for seeking another location must be obvious to all. We located our office here originally because we wanted to publish a political paper for local work in the great campaign of 1880, and wished to avoid office rent, and have mail facilities. These two objects were sufficient to decide our location then, but it is different now. Our efforts in the newspaper business during the year we have been engaged have met with such a degree of favor that we are encouraged to adopt it as a permanent occupation. To do this, we must seek a location where we can have a show of patronage such as all newspapers that thrive must have. Kirwin...is within reach of our present subscribers;...the local business of Kirwin may reasonably be expected to support another paper;...and Kirwin has the trade of a large territory of as good land as any in the west....The politics of The Independent will not be changed, but we shall devote more space hereafter to news and business matters, and less to politics....
