Appointed from the leaders inspiration of the national camp dealt with the main edition central magazines of the National Democratic before and after the World War I, continuing and much expanding this role in the II Republic of Poland. Interests of the company were administered by Stanisław Kozicki, Mieczysław Niklewicz and Antoni Sadzewicz (the last one was replaced in 1928 in the Company Board by Jan Za³uska). All of them were trusted activists of the National Democracy creating from the end 19th century, foundations for the national camp.
