Dodgers clinch fifth consecutive NL West title with 4-2 victory over Giants

Lincoln elected President

Abraham Lincoln was victorious, and the Chicago Tribune on Nov. 7, 1860, was joyous. The newspaper and its publisher, Joseph Medill, had strongly supported Lincoln's candidacy. A Page One editorial read in part: "There is hope yet for freedom, for honesty, for purity. Let distrust and apprehension be banished forever. ... It is enough to say that the triumph is a glorious one -- that Abraham Lincoln is President elect of this great Republic. And let all the people say Amen!" In the nine-column broadsheet, opinion was most of column one, news ran in columns two to six and advertisements filled the remaining three columns.
