Young City and the Push of the Business Men Correspondence of the Herald Oot should be understood forthwith that Warren is not only the most beautiful town of western Yania barring Titusville of bnt in some respects is one of the asd most prosperous places in the whole country Of course while the price of oil upon which it depends to quite a de gree for its increase of wealth is so low it cannot move forward in all ita enterprises with the celerity that it wonld with more profitable prices Nevertheless it somehow manages to progress all the Eo body who has Riven attention to the vari ous public demonstrations of the past summer can fail to notice the evidence of thrift and of the wide awake citizens The great agricultural ex was a grand success and now there is another public scheme on foot for further benefiting the young city and putting it up equal to any of the advanced oil region towns This is tbe admission or introduction of the electric system At the head of the movement is the same aggressive spirit whose management has made nearly every public affair that the city has enjoyed for years successful Geo P Orr is a business man who seems de termined to keep the in Warren moving To this gentleman perhaps more than any other one or two or half s dozen men is duo the credit of much of Warrens greatness iu these publio affairs It is true that Hon Thos applied bis

large percentage of these seem hostile to nay new feature of public improvement calculated to draw even a small portion of their annual income They however seam to enjoy them after they have become thor established ind wonder why they have not been introduced This electric light scheme would be a crowning blessing to the community in some respects and doubtless the support Sir Orr requires for the fulfillment of his designs will be ob after the matter has been fully con in all of its promising aspects The question of whether Warren is soon to shed its childish clothes as a borough and appear as a full grown city is oue that has begun to agitate the public mind consider ably We have in tact three Warrens compo Bed of the borough proper East and North Warren East Warren or Glade ig

immediately jn the borough direction It wonld there fore Beem to be an opportune for those who faror a city government to move p tle matter We could name a first Much Married Mr Solomon LONDON Oct
