all of us rejoice with him in, and
send best wishes for the fifteenth
anniversary of his paper which he
celebrated last week. We admire
the Topic and admire the style of
its editor. The people of Caldwell
have every reason to be proud of
their county paper.
The Wilmington Star announced
a. few days ago the beginning of
its forty fifth half yearly volume.
The Star is always the first paper
with us, and we look upon it as the
pride of North Carolina journals-
Its present editor. Maj. Duffy, is
an apt writer. His editorials bear
evidences of ability and his
are gems of the brightest
nature. Long shine the Star.
We were gratified to see in the
last Henderson Gold Leaf, that Thad
Manning had abandoned his idea
of leaving North Carolina, and was
going to remain in Henderson and
continue the publication of his ex-
paper. Joe Daniels says
the editors of the State ought to
hold a meeting and rejoice over
this good news. We will get in
some rejoicing at the next Press
Convention over it.
It is much disputed where the
world's fair in 1892 shall be held.
Our opinion has all along been
that not the slightest idea of hold-
it anywhere else than n ash-
should be entertained.
New York wants it its and is
every effort to secure it. Chi-
says it ought to go there, and
that city is holding meetings and
sending out circulars hying to
create a sentiment in its favor.
And now St. Louis comes out with
a map bearing three large circles
representing a radius of five
miles around New York, Chi-
and St. Louis and claiming
the number of people its own cir-
to be by far the largest and for
that reason it should have the fair.
If all these little towns don't stop

borne a heavy burden to bring the
building to its present stage, and
greatest credit is due them. It is
now hoped to get the building
completed at an early day.
We publish to-day a letter from
Mr. E. A. Oldham, editor of the
Durham Globe, concerning some
recent comments made in the Re-
Mr. Oldham is not en-
consistent in all things, as we
will show. He complains at us
for not writing him a postal asking
him to exchange, and says that
the aid of a newspaper
directory ho may have overlooked
some of his Well, he
managed to find the address of the
Reflector when his circular was
sent out, and found it again when
the first issue of the Globe was sent
out, so it is strange that he should
have lost it before another issue
of his paper. Again, we did not
think it was necessary or the
tom among North Carolina journals
to send a postal card, when a mark-
ed copy of one paper sent to
re was sufficient to secure the
of an exchange. At least this
has been found to be all that was
necessary in our twelve years ex-
and we saw no reason for
making further advances to the
Globe than we always had to other
papers. Of course it is not
to into print about such
matters, but we saw several papers
complaining of the discourtesy of
the Globe so had our say, too. The
Reflector does not retract any
it has said.

Summer drew on, our people
began wandering around in search
of recreation, interest in the
seemed to wane and
enough of the officers could not be
brought together to conduct the
work of the meetings. Hence
there has been no meeting in
months, and the Association
is pronounced dead by those who
began preaching its funeral and
throwing cold water upon it from
its infancy. But the people are
all back home now, court is over,
there is nothing but the usual
tine of business to occupy the re-
of this year and the Re-
suggests that the
be revived and that it go
forward in carrying out the work
upon which it started. Despite
the croakers, we know that Green-
ville can be made a growing town
if her people can only be induced
to act in concert. There is plenty
of material here for factories, there
are ample facilities for all trans-
there are abundant lands
for all new comers who wish to set-
the climate is salubrious, and
every natural advantage is in our
favor. What then wait we for
and indifference will
see other towns supplant us, while
Greenville has advantages over all
her neighbors if they were only
utilized. We urge the business men
to action. Don't say nothing can
be done. Revive the Association
and go to work earnestly, and you

my humble opinion there arc too
many Fairs in the State now for the

hundreds of dollars each year. Our
people are not able to afford this.

farmers are growing poorer and

much of the little we raise is spent
