Miller supported “farmers, laborers, and silver coinage, and attacked railroads, corporations, and alcohol. Throughout the papers run Miller drew political cartoons, the earliest local cartoons in the state, against Frank Farris, a state senator. Upon Miller’s death in January 1911, his wife continued the paper until its end several months later.
