About

Established in October of 1875, the weekly Pendleton East Oregonian was distinct in offering subscribers a bonded guarantee that they would not lose their money. Paying upfront for a subscription was risky, as money was scarce and many papers went out of business a few months after publishing the first issue. The East Oregonian was a success, attracting local advertisers and satisfying everyone on the subscription rolls. Tensions began to surface, however, as it became evident that the paper would be a Democratic mouthpiece, a feature that alienated Republican advertisers. After a group of Democrats purchased the periodical in 1877, local businessman Lot Livermore withdrew his financial support and backed a Republican paper, the Pendleton Independent.
