Volume 1, Number 1; W. H. Caldwell, editor and proprietor

Having purchased the materials upon which the Record was recently printed, and the subscription books of said paper, we today present to the notice of the public an entire new paper. We did not and cannot become responsible for any contract entered into by the Record management, except to furnish to their subscribers who have paid in advance my paper to the full end of the term for which payment was made....The Courier is launched upon the public under pressure of rather strong opposition and much feeling of bitterness upon the part of the journals now running in the city (Gazette, Republican, and Democrat)....

A pleasant call from Geo. S. Irwin, editor North Topeka Times, and manager of the Irwin Dramatic Troupe on last Tuesday.

March 13, 1879, Beloit Courier (ID 1784)

We have met with that sort of an accident this week which is at once a printer's bad luck and shame -- the pieing of a form. Just as we were going to press, the second page dropped clean out and left us a naked chase. In order to get out a paper this week, we are compelled to come out short on matter.

We are in receipt each week of Billy Caldwell's Courier....Billy is a good printer, a good citizen, a sound Republican, and was a splendid soldier among the boys in blue. -- Ottumwa (Iowa) Courier.

...The above is taken from the old paper on which we spent the better part of our lifetime -- some 20 years altogether. It is the office in which we served as devil, jour., foreman, city editor, and proprietor successively....

August 7, 1879, Beloit Courier (ID 1844)

What in the world was the matter with the newspaper runners last Tuesday? Here was N. B. Reed of the Globe-Democrat, St. Louis; A. R. Green of the Kansas City Journal; Mr. Bramwell of the Topeka Commonwealth; a gentleman representing the Chicago Inter-Ocean, and another from the Cincinnati Enquirer -- all in Beloit the same day....

The Jewell Center Monitor-Diamond has changed hands, Mr. Winsor retiring and J. Thompson & Co. succeeding....The paper appears now as the Jewell County Monitor.

The first number of the Kansas Free Press, issued last Friday at Smith Center by Dr. Neely Thompson, is on our table. It is a quarto, five-column....

February 19, 1880, Beloit Courier (ID 1951)

We were pleased to have a visit from G. Webb. Bertram of Oberlin....It will be remembered that Mr. B. was at one time one of the proprietors of the Record, the predecessor of the Courier.

The Courier does not approve of regular bully fist fighting among editors, therefore we condemn the cowardly action of Paradis of the Concordia Expositor in knocking down and brutally beating Hagaman of the Blade, if it is true he gave the victim no warning. The fierce warfare of words that has been going on between the two in their respective papers partook more of the cock-fighting fraternity than editorial gentlemen....
