March 6, 1873, Dickinson County Chronicle (ID 1233)

With this issue, the third volume of the Chronicle will be completed. When we commenced its publication it was, with the exception of the Salina Herald, the only paper between Junction City and Denver. Now there are no less than a dozen. The Chronicle will continue its hitherto prosperous journey, regardless of the jealousy of envious foes....

"The Chronicle has pursued Mr. Augustine in an unjust and defamatory manner." We clip the above sweet scented paragraph from Augustine's journal. Bah! Those who are acquainted with the facts in the case, and of Augustine's past record, will regard it as a huge joke at his expense. We do not wish to engage in a personal controversy, and will not unless compelled so to do in self-defense. And we hereby notify Mr. Augustine that, unless he ceases his warfare upon us, we will be called upon to write a biographical sketch of him, and show up, in its true light, some of the incidents in his disgraceful career.

March 13, 1873, Dickinson County Chronicle (ID 1235)

With this issue, The Chronicle begins its fourth year. When its publication began, the county was sparsely settled and the outlook for sufficient support for the paper was dubious. But immigration poured in and, until rival interests came in contact, all united in support of the paper....That we have made some enemies is true, however much we may regret the fact; but we would rather have enemies from standing up to our convictions of right than to have friends by our connivance with the wrong.

And here we submit it as a fact, well-known to every man in this town, that the first bitter opposition...came from the course we adopted in our columns against the establishment of houses of ill-fame in Abilene. At that time, we incurred the bitter enmity, among others, of our former friend, Mr. Hodge, who had suffered the location of several houses of prostitution on his absent brother-in-law's land, adjoining town, without one word of protest. We also protested against the course pursued in allowing the dens to run in violation of law all summer and, when the season was ended, collecting ground rent from the vile owners and occupants, as was done by Augustine & Lebold. No wonder that these men are among our most malignant enemies....

May 8, 1873, Dickinson County Chronicle (ID 1249)

As most of our readers already know, we have sold The Chronicle office. Shane and others are the purchasers. It is understood that they will fill all contracts already made with our subscribers....They also take the accounts of all who owe us on subscription. All who are indebted for advertising or job work will settle with us....When we located here, life was unsafe in this town; the county was new, and the population small. There were then about eight school houses in the county; now there are over 50. Now there are thousands of acres of rich soil under cultivation where there was but hundreds three years ago. Then the settlements were confined mainly to Lyons, Turkey and Chapman creeks and the valley of the Smoky Hill; now the prairies all over the county are dotted with farm houses, and the busy hand of industry is seen in all directions....In taking leave of the readers of this paper, we simply throw off the editorial harness because other interests and projects require our attention; we cannot perform the duties which they demand, and at the same time find time to make the paper as good as it ought to be....
