Napoleon knows that Snowball could conceivably return so all blame is shifted to him. Little by little, everything that has gone wrong-including the re-writing of some of the history in minds of the animals- is blamed on Snowball.

Immediately, the day to day operations change. Perhaps most important is the abolition of the Sunday meetings. The meetings are now only a listing of the week's upcoming duties. Since this is where Snowball and Napoleon argued, the elimination of the meetings will keep another Snowball figure from rising up to challenge Napoleon's power.

Napoleon is given more free range of his dictatorship.  Snowball offered the animal's a different point of view, one that did not belong or fall in line to Napoleon.  With him gone we see Napoleon become more volatile and more apt to display violence as an answer to gain following.  Napoleon immediately shows his hunger for power and need to infer intimidation to the other animals.
