Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Newspapering attracted him again after only a brief period of time and the "Essay Kaigh" by-line appeared in the Salt Lake Herald until March 13, 1884 when he became a partner in The Referee and its editor. The publication addressed "fun, fashion and amusement" in Salt Lake City but lasted only a few months. His writing skills were then employed in the Salt Lake area until March 7, 1891 when he became editor of the Utah Democrat in Ogden. It was more a Democratic party organ than a publication of general interest, but Kenner remained with it until 1895, when he launched an unusual periodical bannered The Great Campaign. It was simply devoted to Utah politics from the Democratic viewpoint and predictably was unsuccessful. Kenner then joined the staff of the Provo Uto-nian on May 23, 1896. The paper was, in fact, the Southern Utonian for which he'd briefly written in Beaver fourteen years earlier. As his newspaper career began to fade, he devoted his time to the book, Utah As It Is, published in 1904. It was his valedictory to the profession in which he'd engaged without great financial return, but surely with notoriety, both pro and con. While Ada Freeman captured early recognition as a capable woman journalist, she was not alone. One of her best-known rivals for that honor, though her career was brief, was Kate Jean Boan, who on January 2, 1891 founded the Uintah Papoose in Vernal. Orphaned at age three and adopted by an Episcopalian minister, she found her way to the Mountain States as a young woman, married Wesley Blake, a Signal Corps officer based at Pike's Peak, and became one of the first women to graduate from the University of Colorado. Her husband died in Salt Lake City and for a time she supported her son and daughter by working for the Salt Lake Tribune. Her entree to the Uintah Basin in 1885 was as a matron at the Whiterocks Indian School. She then married Amos Q. Boan, homesteaded with him on a ranch near Vernal and another not far from Roosevelt and became the mother of three more children. 184
