Description UTAH'S SIX SURVIVING DAILIES ing news gathering and editorial policies designed to push the "irrepressible conflict" farther and farther into history and to promote conciliation rather than division. With Fitzpatrick at the helm, The Tribune thrived financially and strengthened its prestige throughout the decade. In 1924, A. N. McKay died and Fitzpatrick became publisher in name as well as in fact. In 1927 he employed G. B.
