On March 24, 1877, a gentleman by the name of Prince Arthur Gatchell started the first newspaper in Wadena named The Tribune. The Duluth Tribune described Gatchell to be about as sprightly as any chap on the Northern Pacific road.

Another Duluth paper described the Tribune as a neat little paper and clean in its appearance. A neat six-column, four-page sheet, well edited.
