CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP. The stock of the Amador County Publishing Company, purchased of Mr. D. Gutmann and others by the late Mr. Henry Eudey in Dec. 1900, was on last Wednesday sold to Mr. Richard Webb and associates, and to-morrow the last named gentleman will take control of the Ledger as Editor The new deal puts behind the Ledger some of the wealthiest and most prominent men in this county, and at its head the old newspaper wheel-horse and war-horse known to • everybody in the county and to the newspaper fraternity throughout the State. The Ledger could not have fallen into abler hands nor been backed up with more capital no matter what combination might have been made. The patrons of the paper are sure of getting the best there is in journalism and of receiving fair treatment. During the five years the undersigned has been in the newspaper business in Amador county he has endeavored to treat every individual fairly and squarely. In short, to do unto others as he would have others do unto him. He has maintained the business on an absolutely cash basis from start to finish, and has worked along the line of honest and true journalism, as he understands it, regardless of selfinterest selfinterest or pressure from any source. In various ways he has often been more or less handicapped handicapped in the matter of expressing his views, and, feeling this, he said nothing editorially, although aching all the time, . like the toothache, to ventilate certain matters. It was often hard to steer clear of breakers, but it has been done, and the »" Ledger ship, so to speak, appears to be stanch and seaworthy and in excellent trim for its new captain. The associations we have formed have invariably been pleasant. We have no complaint to make. We do not regret regret the time devoted to newspaper work here, but we put S aside the faber, for a time at least, with the utmost pleasure. We thank the citizens of Jackson and Amador county for the cordial reception accorded to us five years ago, and for the courtesy that has been extended by one and all up to the present time. Jackson is our home and it is quite likely to continue to ibe our place of residence, for it is a pleasure to live in the foot-hill country and among a large-hearted, generous people. From the newspaper fraternity of the county and State we have received all the fraternal courtesies that a country editor could possibly hope for or expect, and we thank our brother editors sincerely for the honor. f To the patrons of the Ledger we wish success, and in their behalf we invoke the approving smile of Dame Fortune. Your obedient servant, P. BUFFINGTON. a on in to as a
