On May 28, 1898, the Lawrence World criticized a rival newspaper, the Lawrence Journal, editorializing: ``We understand now why the esteemed Journal has so little to do with politics. It wants to be bought and because nobody will buy the dear old grandmother it is roaring. It licks its sore spots by making this bald statement: `It (the Journal) is not going to give candidates for office free advertising and if they expect anything they must divide their salaries to help sustain this paper.' The Journal cannot be accused of denseness in its demand for boodle. We have often thought that that paper ought to have more attention than it was paid it but did not know that it was so notoriously on the make. We trust that some of the candidates will come to the relief of this concern as it is clealy in a bad way.''
