L. C. Warner is the business manager of the Rogers Republican, and was born in York State in 1849. He has been connected with railroad life for many years, and has also given much of his attention to journalism, and has risen to considerable prominence in that calling. He was postmaster of Brookville, Kas., for six years, and at the present time is the owner of the Brookville Transcript, a breezy weekly paper published in the interests of the Republican party. Mr. Warner was married in Virginia to Miss Nettie Crandall, a native of New York, and by her is the father of two interesting children: Roy and Maurice. C. F. Honeywell, editor of the Rogers Republican, was born in the “Buckeye State” in 1868, and at the early age of fourteen years went to Kansas and purchased the Brookville Transcript, which he managed alone for four years, and is still a joint owner of the paper. He is a member of the Methodist Church and belongs to the Knights of Labor.
