The Palouse Republic is 90 years old this month. Of course the newspaper in Pal- ouse was not always called the Republic, the first news- paper was the Palouse Boom. erang and was started by Mr. E. H. Orcutt, a former school teacher. About the same time, I. I. "Shang" Hughes mm oper- ating the Palou News. In 1889 a partnership of P. H. Winton, Norman Buck and William Goodyear was form- ed and purchased the Palouse News. Mr. Buck owned a newspaper plant in Lewl ton and that equipment was moved to Palouse, which im- proved the printing facilities of the News. Some time later Mr. Goodyear acquired com. plete ownership of the News. In 1892 A. H. Harris began publication of what was cal- led the Palouse Republcian in opposition to the Palouse Nlews, which was a demo. cratic organ. Both papers were published in Palouse for a number of years. In 1898 Mr. Harris pur- chased the News from Mr. Goodyear, combining the two papers and renaming the pub. llca.tion The Palouse Repub- lic, the name that has been used since then. A few years later, Harris sold the paper to a partner- hip of B. M. Schick and a Mr. Hetzel. This firm dissolv- ed and George N. Lamphere, of Moscow, and Schick man- aged the Republic together until Schick assumed full control. The next owners were Brown, Lynch and Harris. ton. Mr. Harrington bought out his partners and had full ownership until 1940 when he sold the paper o the Mac. Phersons. Bob and Don Mac Pherson published.the paper for a while and then Bob MacPherson was publisher until his death In 1966. The present publisher, Wal- lace Rosin, took over the paper in the fall of 1966 and is the publisher at the present time. Nimy years of newspaper. ing in Patouse is commemor- ated in this issue, with acco. lades to all of the publishers of the past, who, during their tenure of office, many times went through great struggles to keep a newspaper in Pal. ouse. We hope we can equal their efforts and also survive whatever trials may come our way in the future. Long live Palouse and it's citizens and may the Republic be a living part of it's future.
