This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Abilene Weekly Reflector was published from May 3, 1888 until February 21, 1935. Owned by the Reflector Publishing Company, consisting of John J. Cooper as president and Richard Waring as business manager, the Reflector began a new Republican Party affiliation. The new proprietors cited "the universal demand of republicans in this section of the state for a Republican newspaper at Abilene" and began the "anomalous task of converting a Simon-pure democratic paper into a live, progressive republican journal." In 1888, the Reflector became the official paper of Dickinson County, seizing the title from the Abilene Gazette.
