Taunton Evening News. - This paper is owned by a corporation of Taunton business men and was established in
18S9. It is a penny daily of eight columns and eight pages; politics Republican, and has an average circulation
of 3,800. This paper had an uncertain life during the first five years of its existence, but in 1894 Dudley M.
Holman was elected to the positions of treasurer and general manager, which positions he holds at the present time.
Under Mr. Holman's able management the size and circulation of the paper has increased so that now it is on a firm
financial basis and one of the recognized dailies of the county. It holds the only Associated Press franchise in
Taunton, and has its own operator, taking the full report of the Associated Press over its own wires in its office.
It has a battery of linotype machines and a Goss perfecting press of the latest make. Its local and editorial departments
are on a par with its modern up to date equipment.
