Editors of 'Pielgrzym', published in Pelplin since 1869, similarly to editors of other Polish periodicals in the West Prussia, did not manage to avoid release processes brought to editors responsible for offences against the Penal Code of the country. Nine out of fourteen responsible editors had release processes brought against them. As many as 45 times the articles published in 'Pielgrzym' were taken to the Starogard court. As a result, until 1914 the editors were imposed a fine of 12455 marks and sentenced to prison for one year, three months and one week. However, after appeals these rulings were reduced to 6925 marks, one year and one week of imprisonment.
