The Lesson of the Gazette.
At precisely thirty-three minutes
past three o'clock on Sunday morning,
Nov. 25th, 1888. our esteemed and
beloved contemporary, the Abilene
Daily Gazette, announced to its readers
that it was dying. Since that time it
has been lying in an unconscious coma,
under the strictest surveillance of its
physicians and nurses. Without the
interposition of some miraculous dis
pensation of Divine Providence the
probability is that the patient has
entered upon that last final sleep that
knows no waking.
The Reflector regrets this un
timely departure of the Gazette, but
Gnds the history of its downward pro
gress full of instruction. It started
its career as the "only Democratic
morning daily in the State" full of
promise. It is true that it was not, so
far as we are able to judge, originally
of a wicked or savage disposition.
But it immediately threatened to
revolutionize the politics of Kansas.
Although such an accomplishment in
volved the overthrow of the great and
underlying principles which have made
Kansas the glory and pride of all her
citizens, yet the Gazette entered upon
its self imposed task with abrazen impu
dence and unlimited cheek woithy of
being enlisted in a better cause. It
promulgated and tried to maintain its
fallacious political theories with a cre
dulity as boundless and a zeal as un
scrupulous as can be found in the most
ardent partisans of whatevei faction.
Its enthusiasm for the cause of Democ
racy led it to misrepresent facts with
all the effrontery of an adyocate and to
confound right and wrong with a fear
ful and wonderful dexterity.
Yet that the Gazette has been sin
cerely zealous in its own system of
politics cannot be denied.
But hardly had it entered upon its
ephemeral career as the "only Demo
cratic morning daily" until the great
issues of the campaign just closed was
upon it. It is barely possible that un
der good guidance and favorable cir
cumstances it might have slipped along
through a few years without digorecjit.
But the important Issues of a presiden
tial campaign overwh1
tow .lined its projec-
, and the unseaworthy craft, which
even in still water would have been in
danger of going down from its own in
herent infirmities, was launched on a
raging political ocean, amidst a storm
in which a whole armada of gallant
ships were cast away, Having cast its
lot with, ths southern domineered
Democracy, from consistency it was
compelled to advocate all the political
heresies of-that party. Surrounded by
fierce and resolute political characters
like Glick.Galloway and Martiu, its po
litical opinions were the mere echoes
of the leaders of tbe party.
Maintained and supported by a com
munity largely Republican it assailed
everything that was dear to the Repub
licans. Maintained and supported by
au agricultural community it advo.
cated political theories which, if
adopted, would cause thousands of
men now engaged in occupations other
than agriculture, to abandon their oc
cupations and from sheer necessity be
come producers instead of consumers
of farm products. The theories advo
cated by the Gazette might pass for
correct political argument in a south
ern State, but in progressive and edu
cated Kansas, such arguments are an
swered by a majority of over 79,000
votes for the representative of the
As long as the official voice of the
people of this State had Dot been heard
the Democratic newspaper might keep
up a running fire against the interest
of every Kansan, but when the people
spoke in such emphatic tones, this last
prop was removed and the "only Dem
ocratic morning daily of Kansas" fell
down in utter helplessness.
