Eiboeck's Inaugural "English Department"
German press; Iowa politics; temperance; license law; Treasurer of State; Henry Kellner
Eiboeck, incoming editor of the Staats-Anzeiger, explains his goals for the paper. His main innovation is his "English Department": a weekly editorial column in English to reach non-German readers and advocate for "personal liberty" (and against Prohibition) "in the language in which it will be most effective."
