With this issue the Eastern
Reflector begins its seventh
volume. Six years ago to- day,
on the 25th of January, 1882, it
made its first appearance, in very
small then printed

predecessor, the Express, and its
history from that day down to
the present time, is, perhaps,
well enough known not to need
reviewing again just now.
it to say, that the Reflector
has attained a sufficient age to
, know something of what news-
paper life is. It has stood face
to face with the stern realities
of a career, and to it the
trial and hardships attendant up-
on publication are not
unknown. Of its past existence
we propose in this article to
speak only of the past year,
and of that but briefly. The
principles advocated by the Re-
during the past stand
for themselves and need not be
referred to here.
The year just closed was, from
a standpoint of material
its most eventful.
The main improvement made
was the replacing of our old
hand press with a new power
press which enabled the enlarge-
of the paper from a seven
column to an eight column sheet,
greatly increasing the amount of
reading matter each week. The
general patronage of the Re-
during the past year
was considerably increased and
the seventh volume is begun with
a larger number of subscribers
than at any former period.
There has no
growth to its circulation yet the
increase has been steady, grad-
and encouraging. The earn-
est efforts of the Reflector for
the advancement of Greenville
and community are fresh in the
minds of every reader, and while
in numerous instances can be
seen good results arising from
our labors, modesty forbids
speaking our own praise in that
In the future the aim of the
tor will still be upward
and onward. Its labors for
Greenville and Pitt county shall
be even more zealous than here-
Its political creed will
remain thoroughly and
believe under those

it will not hesitate
evils that may be detected in
the party of its choice. It be-
that virtue, morality and
sobriety are the true safeguards
of every community-that no com
can prosper where such
sentiments do not prevail, and
will faithfully strive for the ad-
of such principles in
this section. It believes that in-
and fair dealing should
govern all transactions between
-mankind, and will frown upon
any semblance of dishonesty,
immorality or corruption.
To its readers the Reflector
hopes to grow more acceptable
with each issue. Already we
have in contemplation improve-
in its typographical

attractive, and other improve-
will follow as rapidly as
means will permit. Within its

Cleveland's clean, honest and
conservative administration of
public affairs that has brought
about this happy state of things.
The people of the rural districts
are beginning to find out what a
gigantic humbug the radical par-
is. They have been brought
to see at last that that party has
been false to every principal
which it professed to adhere to;
that it has been untrue to every
promise, and that all its actions
have been characterized by fraud,
theft, intimidation, treachery,
and an intense hatred of the
Southern people. They have
been led to believe that the best
interests of the country can be
best and advanced by
the promulgation of sound Dem-
doctrines and principles.
They have scented the rottenness
in the Republican camp, and are
fleeing to the fold
for deliverance. W e are pleased

our opinion that the leaders of

Reports and Presentments.
Of coarse the reports made by
the Grand Jury at the recent
term of Pitt Superior Court, which
we published in fall last week, are
familiar to every reader the
Reflector. Copies of these re-
ports will be presented to the
Board of County Commissioners
for them to consider. The Jury
reported the jail dirty, filthy and
uncomfortable on the inside, and
the premises around the jail filthy
offensive. This matter as to
the interior of the jail had already
been reported to the State Board
of Health by the County
and it is a matter the
Commissioners should look into.
It is true inmates are placed
there in punishment for crime, but
at the same time human consider-
entitle them to be kept in
clean and comfortable cells. If
the fault lies with Sheriff or
the officers under him, then the
performance of official duties
should be required. If the fault
is in the building or its furnishing
then steps should be taken to
properly remedy it.
The report in reference to
County Poor House should also
have immediate consideration.
People are placed there who can-
not provide for themselves and
they should not be allowed to
fer for want of food or covering
for the body. That
there is shameful and it
be prevented. Th
that the Board of Com mis
dispose the present prop-
and purchase a location near-
town and make and have kept
a more decent and respectable
Poor House, is a good, and one we
would be glad to know they
acted in accordance therewith.
The Grand Jury also did some
good work in present-
We learn that every Mag-
in the county, save five,
were presented for failure to make
official returns of cases tried
by them. The law declares then
guilty of a misdemeanor for such
Perhaps the presentments for
which the Jury deserves
praise were those for gambling.
Wholesale offenses of this nature
have been going on Greenville,
but this is the first Grand Jury
for several Courts that inquired
into them. The names of persona
presented are not yet known to
the public, but they are numerous.
When it was noised abroad that
such presentments had been made
there were several uneasy faces to
be seen, and it was no common
thing to hear question asked
VI of them Much
comment has been made and
of a serious nature have
been brought to light. We have
heard of grown men, men of large
families, who have been enticing
boys from twelve to fifteen years
old and upwards into the back
rooms of drinking saloons and
gambling with them nearly all
night. Those men should hang
their heads in shame and the
of bar keeper who allow-
ed such should be revoked. Not
a great while since the
created some hard feelings against
itself by suggesting existence
of such evils and advising parents
to keep their boys at home after
night, but it can be seen
wherein we were right. We have
also been told of an
shocking in its nature to mention
in a bar-
room. If proven to be true every
accomplice should be severely pun-
and the man in whose shop
it occurred should be from
town. We earnestly hope the
next Grand Jury will continue
good work commenced by the
last one by finding true bills
against that the
Court before which they come up
for trial will mete out just punish-
The gambling dens in

In the year 1620, forty-five
of Africa were brought from
the coast of Africa and landed on
the banks of the James River, in
Colony of Virginia. They were
brought against their will and
made drawers of water and hew-
of wood, and in the view of
law and public decision considered

was to the good fighting of the
