Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION the fact one man publishes two papers, but Jakeman has hit upon a daisy plan to fill the columns of his sheet: the editorials of one are the editorials of the other, and much of the other matter is just the same. For running a newspaper, Jakeman has a Henry Clay head on him, more clay than Henry!" In 1890 Ward Stevenson took over the paper and was at its helm when it succumbed on September 9, 1893. And the Times-Reporter, unveiled on July 16, 1892 under editor E. A. Gregory, passed on to newspaperdom's Valhalla some six months later on December 16th. Which left the journalistic field open for the arrival of the Messenger, historically reviewed in Chapter 3. MARYSVALE Newspapering in Marysvale and Junction is linked together because the only publication of longevity in Piute County was located in each of those communities at some time in its history.

She was described by the Wasatch Wave as "a maiden fair, fully equal to the occasion." But historian Alter reports, "Miss DeWitt quit; we did not find out why." Perhaps, research indicates, because she was only 18 years of age and producing a paper was hardly a feminine profession in that day. The reins were handed to J. T. Camp, whose Utah news-papering ventures were numerous and invariably unsuccessful. As the Pioneer was in its death throes, John F. Price made an effort to revive it but failed in 1901. Hall of Fame publisher Josiah F. Gibbs began Marysvale's second publication on September 15, 1902 and retained ownership though leasing it to others until November 4, 1904, when it, too, succumbed. George J. Russell was one unsuccessful lessee (May 15, 1903-July 17, 1903) and A. B. Williams and 68
