By Way of Introduction
As the new proprietor and editor o f the Forest Grove
Express, we step forth to make our bow to the good people
o f Forest Grove and vicinity. We are glad to locate in so
, goodly a town. Forest Grove is a consequential place. Its
business blocks are substantial, its streets are sightly; its
college should make any town proud; and its gigantic oak
trees, an institution in themselves, are magnificent, kindling
the eye and stirring the imagination.
We purpose to try to publish a good paper., Our prede
cessor, Mr. Benfei, founded the Express and piloted it
through its infant maladies and troubles. Taking hold
where he let go, we will not do so well as he did unless we
do better, for he has removed many obstacles.
We purpose to stand for the best interests o f Forest
Grove and this part o f the county— interests, financial, men
tal, moral. Everything that shall make this neighborhood
prosperous shall receive our sympathetic attention; every
thing that shall promote the interest o f Pacific University
shall be our special care; and everything that shall conspire
to smooth the pathway o f the churches and to establish them
in the esteem o f the people shall receive our assistance un
Most thoughtful men agree that it is a good thing for a
town to have two well-supported papers. They are as whole
some in their effect as to have two great political parties.
Some o f our leading men have stated that formerly they did
not believe this, but that now they do believe it, and believe
it most thoroughly.
We shall do our best to try to merit the favorable con
sideration o f all classes o f the people.
