Volume 1, number 1 of the Republican appeared on February 12, 1906. The May 23 issue announced that General Manager A. E. Blunck and Treasurer Lewis A. Blunckhad resigned. H. E. Booth and William Spry took their places, and Spry and other members of the Republican Party bought up the Bluncks' interest. Malcolm McAllister was Manager and took charge June 1. Over the next few years, advertising revenues became scarce and on Friday, August 13, 1909, this paper wrote: "To the Republican Patrons--This is the last issue of the Inter-Mountain Republican in its present form. Tomorrow, patrons will receive the Salt Lake Herald-Republican. The property and good will of the Republican have been sold to a company which has also secured the Herald, and in a sense, the paper to be published by the new company will itself be distinctly new."
