Staunchly Republican in its politics, the paper stated “the Republican knows no master by the welfare of the party…party, not faction, will control the policy of the Republican.” (citation) In 1903 the Mitchells sold the paper to Clarence D. Wallace. The Republican was sold again in 1907 to R.V. Fellhauer, who ran the paper as sole publisher for two years before establishing the Henry County Republican Printing Company in 1909.
