To the Editor:  —The writer's subscription (as have those for every former one) for Vol. xv of The Journal will soon be forthcoming, and for the fact above he would regret a break in the file. To the ordinary observer the proposition to remove The Journal to the Capital or elsewhere must have in its favor some occult reason or grounds, so palpable and strong are the objections. In all forms of journalism the argument for a central place of publication is vital, but in the special case of The Journal, it is tenfold stronger. The word "Association" gives the key to this statement. Surely reasons, at the present sufficient, and daily augmenting—not to mention success—would induce the common mind to think and say "The Journal is exactly where it should be." Yours truly,Independence, Iowa, Dec. 27, 1890.
