Maine llres the first pun in the coming con

what 1 can. Mj interssts, therefore, must be
wholly in the hands of my friends.

that I am the man to represent them next
winter in the Legislature, it will be my great
est ambition to serve them in that capacity to
the very best of my ability. If, however, the
Republican party of the district should select
another Tor that place, it will bo my great
pleasure to do all 1 can for the success not only
of that nominee, bnt for the success of all
other nominees of the Republican party in
the county, in the State and in the Nation.

It is one of the few pleasures of

Michigan they have put the figures at

shows that they are really S65,000,000.

A Buined Campaign Cry.
The great cry of the Democracy for
the past two years has been "an over
flowing treasury demands that we re
duce the surplus." The existence of a
surplus has been so persistently de
clared and upon terms apparently so
well-founded that conservative men
have taken it for granted and have
been unwilling to express themselves
The latest information from Wash
ington, however, is to the effect that
there will soon be thrown into the
Democratic free-trade camp a bomb
shell that will very much disconcert it.
It will undoubtedly be shown that the
basis, and the only basis, of their free
trade cry has been knocked from be
neath their feet by their own acts. It
is a fact, well known to those who fol
low the course of the treasury and are
familiar with the outstanding obliga
tions of the government, that if an
accurate balance had been struck at
any time for several years, it would
have been shown that there is not an
enormous surplusJinEthe treasury; that
on the contrary, if a proper estimate
should be taken of the legitimate out
standing obligations of the government
and of the honest ,debts of the govern
ment which have been either postponed
or the payment of which has been re
fused, owing to the attempts of dema
gogues to pose as professional econo
mists, it would appear that the margin
of receipts over expenditures is no
greater than prudent business methods
require. The public has been deceived
in this respect largely on account of
the method of stating the treasury bal
ances and of the inferences that are
made from these statements.
It is also beyond question a fact that
the government has not presented a
statement of its assets and liabilities,
which properly take into account all
the demand and deferred liabilities for
which the government is accountable.
If the free traders should choose to put
the warrant and accounting officers
upon the stand, facts would be learned
of which they have taken no account in
their raid upon the industries of the
In view of thi3 state of affairs,
which, to use Cleveland's own expres
sion, "confronts us as a condition,nota
theory," the cry of "surplus" becomes
the more odious and must be accounted
for either by supposing a deliberate at
tempt to turn over the industries of
this Nation to the lords of England or
by a willfully blind prejudice against
Republican economic methods.
The only reason ever assigned for
free trade is the existence of loo much
revenue and now if, as seems probable,
the government balance sheet shows
that the "surplus" is largely a figment
of rabid Bourbon imaginations, what
possible grounds can be taken for pas
sing that free-trade measure, the Mills
bill, or for carrying out President
Cleveland's free-trade, free-wool ad
vices? It has long been known that
the amount of the surplus has been
over-stated, but now if it is proven
that there actually is no unreasonable
revenue at all, the free-trade cry is
As we suggested the other day, if
any town in Kansas gets a visit this
year from James G. Blaine it will be
Abilene. It is not yet decided that he
will make the western trip so much
talked of, but he is strongly urged to be
at the Kansas City exposition and the
chances are that lie will accept the in
vitation. We can assure the readers of the Re
flector that if such a trip is made
the "foremost American citizen" will
favor Abilene with a speech.
We sincerely hope it will be -so for

sible exception of Harrison, whose pres

Republican Club Meeting.
An enthusiastic meeting of the Har
rison and Morton club was held last
evening in Armory hall. D. R. Gor
den, the president, presided. The mat
ter of uniforms, torches, etc., for the
campaign was discussed. Upon a vote
of the members it was dfecided that the
black tile be declared the regulation
campaign hat of the club. A commit
tee consisting of Messrs. Shaler, Bert
and Harger was appointed to arrange
for supplying the club's members with
hats. Messrs. Nelson, Rice, Dowling,
Dingee and Ford were appointed a com
mittee on torches, transparencies, etc.
Reports will be made at the next meet
ing. After the routine business was dis
posed of, speeches were in order. C. C.
Bitting was the first speaker. He
made a strong, logical and interesting
plea for protection to our industries
and in opposition to the English policy
of Grover Cleveland. Personalities, he
declared, need not enter into the cam
paign, as the tariff question alone was
He was followed by C. S. Crawford
who handled the Mills bill and Cleve
land's record ably, closing with a well
drawn word picture of the November
Democratic Salt river excursion. Both
gentlemen were generously applauded.
Dr. J. M. Hodge and Col E. H. Din
gee also addressed the club, urging
earnest, untiring" effort in this cam
paign. During the remainder of the cam
paign, the club will meet every Tues
day night, or oftener. The Eepubli-,
cans of Abilene and Dickinson county
have waked up as dever before and the
prospects for a clean sweep for the
party's nominees is assured.

TWO IMPORTANT SALES.
Twenty-three Thousand Dollars "Worth

There was consummated yesterday
two of the largest transfers of Abilene
property that we have had occasion to

Shaler's drug store in the lower story
and by offices upstairs, for the sum of
$9,750. The purchasers are Clark D.

the south part of this county. They
