The editor states that the paper will:

“Coupled with this wish we give an unqualified assurance of a clean, upright, healthy newspaper. While rising above the mediocrity of contemporary journalism, we shall ever scorn to countenance that type of newspaper which debauches the minds of its readers by pandering to the vilest sensationalism and then sustains an evil existence on the tainted shackles of public depravity. The "Independent" will be a paper qualified to enter every Catholic, every Christian, every American home, fitted alike for the perusal of child and adult, the advocate of civil righteousness and public purity”
