The Reflector is authorized to re

office-holders who believe that "to the
victors belong the spoils."
This will be a week of jubilee in
Kansas and indeed throughout the Na
tion. It will be a dead town that does
not celebrate Harrison's election.
"To the victors belong the spoils"
was a favorite cry that went up from
the hungry Democrats four years ago.

The people of Kansas have more con
fidence in the ability and willingness
of the Republican party to enforce Pro

blatant professions of self-righteous
third party professionals.
Just as was predicted, now that
Cleveland has met with defeat he is
the worst-cursed man in the Nation.
His own party despises him because it
knows that he caused its overthrow by
his ill-advised and inoppoituue advo
cacy of free trade.

Smith, R. N. Smith, B. C. Cranston,
S. P. Harriugton and C. B. Hoffman,

resentative cf labor.
Mr. Cleveland owes his defeat to
much the same causes that caused his
success. His election as governor of
New York and as President were the
result of splits in the opposition. His
defeat is to some extent due to a fac
tional fight in his own party.
Good election returns, caused

Yes, Providence looks kindly upon a
people which has the good sense to
elect a straight Republican ticket.
Next year's wheat crop is assured. An
era of prosperity has already begun.
Two years since Hon. John A. An
derson was elected by a plurality over
Lowe of fl,489. The returns thus far
received indicate a plurality over Tobey
of between 8,000 and 9,000, notwith
standing the fact that there was a fusion
of the Union Labor and Democratic
votes in almost all the counties. Mr. An
derson runs ahead of Harrison in every
county heard from and will still retain
Ms oMsobriquet of "Big Majority An
derson." Four years ago the body of FrohlbU
tiooists made a fight on alleged matters
of principle. This year they simply
made a fight against the Republican
party. This organization, like an un
grateful child, spit in the face of the
mother party which pberjsheg it in in?
fancy and taught It the principles of
morality on which it based its platform,
and like the self-same wicked child it.than the total population, but as the
has received the severe spanking it sojstate is Republican anyway, it does

A Permanent Victory.
The overwhelming victory won by
the Republicans in the late National
election is signified in more ways than
one. Not only is it a hearty endorse
ment of Republican principles and es
pecially of protection, and a condem
nation of Democratic free-trade
advocacy and incompetent civil service
but it is eloquent with promise of a
long and uninterrupted Republican
rule, one which shall not be broken for
a score of years to come.
Lest some should think us extrava-
g.iiit in making this claim, let us
briefly review the situation. In the
first place the "solid South" has been
broken. We.st Virginia has wheeled
re in' o the Republican line and the indi
Jouions sue that in another four years
MisMouii, Virginia and perhaps Ken
tucky will also be found on our side.
The remarkable gains made by the
Republicans in those commonwealths
warrant the assnmption.
Again, the next Congress will be a
Republican one. The House of Rep
resentatives will have a Republican
majority of about fifteen while the
Senate will have two more Republi
cans to" add to the present majority as
well as a Republican presiding officer,
Vice President Morton. This is a
state of affairs which has not existed
for more than a decade and it will give
the administration an opportunity to
shape legislation in the interests of
the people, as the Republican party
has always done, and so obviate any
desire for a change.
But one of the strongest reasons for
believing that the victory is a perma
nent one remains to be stated. In
the north-west are four large Territo
riesWashington, Dakota, Montana
and Idaho which have been vainly
knocking for admission to the Union
these many years. One of the first
acts of the new Congress will be to
make them States. They have every
requisite fur admission and it has been
only the obstinacy of a Democratic
House that has prevented it. They
aie overwhelmingly Republican as
much so as Kinsa9 and they will add
at least twenty electoral votes to the
Republican :olumu in 1892 and there
after. There remains also to be taken into
consideration the census of 1890 and
the new apportionment of Representa
tives which will follow. The West
and North has grown in population
more rapidly than the South since 1S80
and hence will get a larger percentage
of the Representatives again adding
to the Republican strength.
Add to these reasons the fact that
the Democratic party has been tried
and found wanting, that the North has
no desire for another administration
dominated by a hundred Rebel briga
diers, that the Americans prefer that
America be her own guardian instead
of turning over the reins to Europe,
and that patriotism is an abiding ele
ment in American hearts, and we have
a powerful and unanswerable argu
ment leading us to the belief that the
rule of Republicanism to be inaugu
rated on the fourth of March next will
continue to bless the people for many,
many years to come.
Tammany is on top in New York
City. The county Democracy sectiou
of the party has gone to pieces, and, as
a faction, will probably never take part
in another National or State canvass.
Mayor Hewitt, the candidate of the
"Counties," is overwhelmingly beaten
for re-election, although he evjdeptly
obtained strong Republican up.pprt,
fpr he Uepub.lieap nomipee for Mayor
runs behind his ticket, Juat now the
Hijl faction of the party, as opposed to
the Cleveland faction, is in control in

While we are rejoicing over the grand
Republican victory gained in Dickin
son county, we must not forget to give
due honor to the various elements
which have aided so much in making
the victory possible.
The Republican central committee
has proved itself fully able to conduct a
successful campaign. The chairman,
John J. Cooper, and the secretary, A.
C. Romig, have spared, neither time
nor effort to carry the canvass forward.
And the result, the greatest Republi
can victory in years, proves how well
they did their work. Nearly every
school district had at least one Repub
lican meeting and large rallies were
held in all the cities. The Republican
central committee can rest on its laurels,
assured of a glorious fruitage for its
There were, too, many influential
irentleroen outside the committee and
candidates who lent their time, voice
and inlluersce l the woik. Among
these, to whose efforts the magnitude
of the victory in this county is largely
due, may be mentioned the old Repub
lican war-horse, Dr. J. M. Hodge, who
has worked day and night for the whole
ticket; D. R. Gorden, president of the
Abilene Harrison ai.d Morton club; W.
S. Stsmbangh, O. L. Moore, O. S.
Crawford, Hon. C. Kohler, J. P. Cainp
btll. E. 11. Morse, W. P. Robinson and
a tcore of others, all of whom have
.lone noble work for the party.
The county Rpublican press has of
course been the chief factor in the con
test. Commencing with the Daily and
Weekly Reflectok, which has untir
ingly supported the cause of Republi
canism and the straight Republican
ticket, there has been a red-hot fusilade
of argument and exhortation kept up
along the line in the Abilene Chroni

has sent his regrets to Mr. Cleveland.
The Hope Dispatch will hereafter be

ing the campaign. The Dispatch has
done valiant work for the Republican
party in the past few months, being
the only paper in its part of the county
that has uncompromisingly supported
the straight ticket. Mr. Crary de
serves commendation for the gallant
fight he has made. We hope the Dis
patches prosperity may continue.
