CASTALIA IOWA EDITORS WIELDED GREAT POWER IN 1846 Newspapers wen- a powerful force in Iowa a century ago. Nine papers were being published at the beginning of 1846. two were established during the course of the year, and one was discontinued, so that ten papers were being printed when Iowa was admitted into the Union. The story of journalism in Iowa in 1846 is told by Cornelia Mallett Barnhart in the February issue of "The Palimpsest." the monthly publication of The State Historical Society of Iowa. Nine of the eleven 1846 newspapers were published in Mississippi River towns. Iowa City and Keosauqua being the only inland towns that could claim a paper. The editors of these papers were among the ablest and most influential men in Iowa."James Clarke, founder of the Territorial Gazette and Burlington Advertiser, was serving as the governor of the Territory' of Iowa in 1846. James G. Edwards, editor of the Burlington Hawk- Eye was probably the most outspoken Whig and an irrepressible temperance advocate. Alfred Sanders wielded tremendous influence between 1841 and 1861 as editor of the Davenport Gazette. The Dubuque Miners' Express was called "the Thunderer," because of the tremendous influence that editor George Greene wielded over Democrats in that portion of Iowa. Others were equally articulate on such subjects as abolition and temperance, internal improvements and the public patronage, the Mexican War and the Oregon boundary dispute, and the question of statehood and boundaries. In addition to being self-appointed guardians of the public good, newspapers did much to disseminate some of the best literary gems and philosophical thought in vogue during the "Fabulous Forties." Editors varied in their tastes, of course, some preferring the purely sentimental poetry to the more lasting works. As mirrors of an exciting era, no other single source can equal the newspapers of Iowa a century ago. I FRANKVILLE ! V_ i Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Kneeskern were Frnnkville visitors Wednesdny.
