Through the paper's long history, there were some inconsistencies in its volume numbering. In 1972, when the when the Saturday editions of the Journal and Bulletin were combined to create the Journal-Bulletin, the Saturday edition was reset to become Volume 1, Number 1.  The daily edition of the paper followed suit in 1995 (becoming Volume XXIII) upon the termination of the Evening Bulletin.  In July 2017, the Journal announced it was resorting back to the original volume numbering. The Friday, July 21 edition of the newspaper was set to become Vol. CLXXXIX, No. 1, to mark the first paper of the 189th year.
