Alson C. Davis, a Democrat legislator and party leader from Leavenworth (later Wyandotte) County, wrote from Wyandotte that he strongly favored "the establishment of a first class democratic paper" in Leavenworth. He believed this was vital "to the Cincinnati Platform Democracy" and was willing to pledge an additional $400 to the cause; a Mr. Beach had previously offered to give Halderman "a bonus of two thousand dollars" with which to start such a newspaper.
