The Liberty League

Another paper, which had a short life, and whose publishers were unannounced, made its appearance April 3, 1873, its name being The Liberty League. The paper was started as an organ for the liquor dealers of Rock Island and the ad joining cities. It lived three weeks, when, as generally supposed, the material was stole during the night time, shipped to Burlington, Iowa, and sold.
