i. ABILENE fiEFLECTOB rUBLISIIED BT- EEFLECTOfi PUBUSM& COHPAJX ACKNOWLEDGING FAULTS- The Best Way of Disarming Resentment and Calming Irritation. There is one means of preserving peace, harmony and good-will in our social relations which, although very simple, very just and manifestly very effective, is perhaps more frequently shunned and disliked than any other. It is the frank admission of having been in the wrong. Nothing so quickly disarms resentment, calms irritation, melts' away cold displeasure, turns anger into tenderness, and changes a defiant attitude to one of sympathy, as this candid confession, and yet few -words are more rarely uttered. The simple avowal of the truth, without ex cuse or palliation: 4I was wrong," or 4,I was mistaken," or "1 regret having said or done as I did" is worth a thousand elaborate attempts at explan ation, which are generally unbelieved, unaccepted and give rise to argument instead of reconciliation. The person thus addressed undergoes an...

The Fiftieth Con gress will be noted in history for four thlrjgs: First, the admission into the Union of four new States North I -akota, South Dakota. Montana end Washington Territories, second, for the tftrin discussion which consumed so ranch time in both House and Senate: third, for the crea tion of a new oxocutive department, and fourth, lor the amount of filibustering that took place in the House, Undoubtedly the most important piece .of busine s Congress disposed of was the admis sion of four new States to the Union. This action would have been almost an impossibility before the election which settled the question of the Presidency. It was an action of ureal importance to the Union, adding to the strength of the general Government, and relieving it of a great deal of responsibility. Iti...

Tnbune.1 President Harrison's inaugural is worthy -of the great Nation whose first century of progress he reviews. Eloquent and in every way admirable in tone, breathing a spirit of genuine patriotism, appealing to the higher motives and better feelings of political opponents, it is in the only praise worthy sense non-partisan, and yet seeks no -shallow approval by any concealment or sacrifice of conviction. In that respect it will remind the Nation of the earnest ap peal which made President Lincoln's first inaugural address a powerful and memora ble paper. It speaks unhesitatingly and without compromise for those whose con victions have prevailed in the late election, hut speaks for them only as they sincerely eek the welfare of the Republic. Fel...
