March 17, 1879, Lawrence Daily Reporter (ID 1786)

"The Daily Reporter at Lawrence is the sauciest, prickliest, pepperyest and cutest paper in the state. It is full of fun and mischief and a terror to old fogies and hypocritical long faces. Isaac L. Sherman and Gid R. Propper are the sponsors. Continue to shake 'em up, boys." ? Junction City Union.

J. E. Covel is the editor of the Lawrence Tribune (by the way that is a paper got up in this town); he is also superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School. He attends all free shows. He goes to all the prayer meetings. He stays at home when paid concerts and other entertainments come along, and sells his complimentary tickets, thereby cheating the managers....He is a snozer, a liar, a fraud, a cheat, a rascal, a hypocritical demagogue, and the truth is not in him....

April 5, 1879, Lawrence Daily Reporter (ID 1792)

Police court. Before Judge Steele. The case of Propper vs. Sherman was dismissed. No cause of action. Plaintiff to pay all costs.

The above is a sequel of the Propper-Sherman controversy...which was brought about by G. R. Propper's attempt to appropriate the entire proprietorship of the Reporter without right or title to do so, and to appropriate the revenue of the office to his own personal use....We shall entirely sever all connection with G. R. Propper and all pertaining to such a class....

April 9, 1879, Lawrence Daily Reporter (ID 1793)

...It is a well established fact that I was the sole owner and editor of the Reporter at St. Joe, Mo., and came here with it. Propper had just returned here and was without money and had nothing to do. Knowing of him as a printer and needing assistance in work, I offered him the opportunity to join me in issuing the Reporter here. Furnishing the brains and all the money that was used in starting the enterprise myself, up to the time of his repudiating my connection with the Reporter (by erasing my name from the partnership) he had shared all the benefits that accrued; and now, with monies belonging to the Reporter, that he has appropriated to his own use, he is using every means in his power to rob me of my own....

May 6, 1879, Lawrence Daily Reporter (ID 1799)

"The Lawrence Daily Reporter appears this evening in a new dress under the management of Louis F. Metzger, a journalist of considerable experience, who brings to his new position a sufficient amount of capital to conduct the enterprise successfully. Isaac L. Sherman, the junior partner, officiates as city editor and, as he has acquired quite a reputation as a 'funny man,' it will no doubt be a bright and interesting newspaper." ? St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
