About

The Meade County News was founded in Meade, Kansas, on January 11, 1900. John D. Wehrle, editor and publisher, stated that "The principal aim of this News will be to promote the business interests of the city of Meade, and to further the principal industries of Meade County." He went on to say: "Politically, we will state that it was through the influence and efforts of prominent Democrats and Fusionists that this paper was established... and we feel that it is our duty to support these men." The Meade County News was the "The Official Democratic Paper in Meade County" in 1906 and the "Official County Paper" and "The Only Democratic Paper in Meade County" in 1914. The News was published every Thursday; circulation remained around 700 throughout its run.
