Description THE TERRITORY'S EARLIEST NEWSPAPERS merger of the two dailies from which its hyphenated name is derived. The Journal is a descendant of the Utah Journal, which made its bow on August 1, 1882.

At that time Manti had a population of 2,408 and its Sanpete County neighbor, Ephraim, where the Enterprise was located, numbered 2,086.
