In November, 1868, Der Volks-Zeitung was merged with Die Neue Welt (New World), a morning paper, started by a stock company composed mainly of stockholders of the German Bank. The first editors of Die Neue Welt were Heinrich Binder and Carl Roesser. A. Willhartilz...was business manager for a season; among others who acted in that capacity was Louis Soldan...Finally, after losing a large amount of money for its stockholders (some authorities say eighty thousand dollars) it was absorbed in the Staats-Zeitung.
