It initially had two daily editions, and circulated 1,000 free copies. Following another ownership change, the Bee was renamed the Bulletin in August 1880 and discontinued in 1882.

dbo:abstract
  • The Portland Bee was a Republican newspaper in Portland in the U.S. state of Oregon in the late 19th century. It was launched in November 1875, the same year as the Portland Daily Bulletin disincorporated; like the Bulletin, it had both daily and weekly editions. It initially had two daily editions, and circulated 1,000 free copies. Though fairly short-lived, the paper has been described as "a journal of force and influence in its time." It was quoted, and its contents syndicated, in numerous contemporary newspapers in its region, and contemporary papers also published general praise for the Bee. Several of the many owners, publishers, and editors it had during its short tenure were family relations of the editors of other major newspapers of the time, the Oregonian and the New Northwest. Shortly after the paper launched, and after its first ownership transfer, its editor engaged in an extended editorial battle with the editor of a rival paper, and ultimately killed him in a duel. D. H. Stearns, the paper's founder, repurchased the Bee following the scandal, and emphasized the change in leadership in advertisements in newspapers around the state. Following another ownership change, the Bee was renamed the Bulletin in August 1880 and discontinued in 1882. The Oregon Historical Society acquired archival copies of the Bee upon its incorporation in 1898. (en)
