Vol. 1, No. 39. By Ben H. Keyser, editor. Published every Saturday morning at Junction City, Riley Co., K.T.

Prospectus....This is the most Western town of any importance in the Territory, being three miles west of Fort Riley, and located immediately at the junction of the Republican and Smoky Hill forks of the Kaw River; it naturally commands the trade of the settlers upon the rich and beautiful valleys that spread towards the west and south from the banks of these streams. The continued prosperity of the town, although but six months old, its rapidly increasing importance and the many and varied interests that are centering around it has induced the undersigned to try the rather dangerous experiment of publishing here, upon the borders of civilization, a newspaper....Under any and all circumstances we hope ever to remain honest and independent enough to state fairly and freely our convictions upon all matters....We have engaged correspondents from different parts of the country: from Utah, California, Washington City, &c., &c....Terms $2 in advance; 10 copies sent to one name $15.... -- Ben. H. Keyser, editor Junction Sentinel.
