The lead story of the November 9, 1883, edition of the Danville Times reports on the statewide election in which the Democratic Party gained a majority over the Readjuster Party. The headline of the article, "Glorious Victory! Mahoneism Killed and the State Redeemed," reveals the newspaper's bias toward the Democratic Party. (William Mahone was the leader of the Readjuster Party.)
