Like its daily counterpart, the ''Blätter'' was initially Democratic in politics then became Independent in 1872 to maintain its appeal to its growing readership. By 1880, over 21,000 subscribed to the publication; by 1911, this figure had grown to over 40,000. Cincinnati’s strong German-American community contributed to the success of the ''Blätter'' until the 1910s. The anti-German sentiment that prevailed during World War I and the growing Prohibition movement caused the publication to lose newsstand sellers, subscribers, and advertisers, and it ceased publication in November 1919. The daily, then known as the ''Tägliches Cincinnatier Volksblatt'', published its last issue a week later.
