THE FARMERS' VOICE.

The Farmers' Voice was first issued by the Farmers' Voice Company January 21, 1901. It was instituted to advocate the principles of the "Farmers' Alliance." J.J. Henley assumed control April 14 of the same year and a few months subsequently purchased the interests of the other members of the company. The paper has been continued along the same lines - steadfastly advocating the principles of the Populist party and Democracy; always staunch for fusion and fusion principles. The Voice is classed as a Democratic paper, but it has always advocated the same policy.

J.J. Henley was born in Randolph county, North Carolina, January 11, 1849. He was reared and educated in the common schools of that locality. Mr. Henley was a pioneer of Kansas, having come to the state in the autumn of 1869. In the spring of 1870 he homesteaded the northwest quarter of section 35, town 5, range 1, across the Republican river, just one-half mile south of Clyde. From 1876 to 1887 Mr. Henley followed mining in Arizona, but returned to Cloud county and took up newspaper work. Mr. Henley was married in 1893. His family consists of a wife and two engaging children, Edna, aged seven, and Bryan, aged five.
