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 Reflector, founded in the latter half of 1883, was an eight-page newspaper published every Thursday. By the early 1880s, Abilene had shed its rough cowtown image of the late 1860s to become a thriving commercial center with a rapidly growing population. In its own words, the paper was "conducted in the interest of the Democratic party, believing the party in its wisdom in the choice of candidates, from county offices to national, is greater than personal feeling or prejudice."
