Vol. 1, No. 27. A. W. Robinson, editor.

The editor of the Western News has seen fit to move his office from Detroit, Dickinson County, to Marion Centre, where he expects a hearty, liberal support (don't let him be disappointed). The News is a fixed institution. While we expect to labor hard and unrelentingly for the best interests of Marion County, we propose also to lend a helping hand to our neighboring counties....It shall be our highest aim to make the Western News a paper second to no country paper in the state....As the car of progress rolls its ponderous wheels along, the correspondent of the News will travel by its side, gleaning facts from every revolution of the hub on its mighty axle.... -- A.

We propose to run our sheet on strictly honest principles. The News is run by no party, clique or ring. We are running this ship, and propose to do so just as long as we remain editor and proprietor....Our object for running the News in Marion County is a higher and nobler one, viz: to make the county second to none other in the state....
