country Btirrouadmg as well as by Warren itself Another large dry goods establishment is talked of If it comes it will be situated in the Hoffman block The Beauties of This Young City and the Push of the Business Men Correspondence of the Herald AVxaBEK Oot should be understood forthwith that Warren is not only the most beautiful town of western Pennsyl Yania barring Titusville of bnt in some respects is one of the lireliast 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 goaheaditiveness of the wide awake citizens The great agricultural ex hioition 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 IJRht 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 prooession 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 Struthere applied bis energies in days that are past and his great capital as well in adorning community with many of its most beautiful embellishmenti but Mr Struthcrs In now compelled to let his mantle fall upon younger shpuldeis and it seems to hare fallen upon Mr Orr In the Introduction of the new system of illumination Orr many obstacles to overcome the most difficult of which the prejudice of the people and the apathy of business men Some and in fact 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 oughly established ind wonder why they have not been introduced befora 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 tained after the matter has been fully con sidered 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 seperateu from the borough by the Gone vrango Creek and daring the past summer has advanced in population to such an ex tent tbat the citizens do not feel entirely safe without some form of goTeromsnt What shall that be Of course the inhabi tants of the borough would reply R city in which aU divisions would have a hand It would seem preposterous to organize an other borough witk only a creek a few hundred feet wide seperating it from the one already in working order And yet there are many Bist Warren people who desire that very thing Bat as they are divided in opinion on the subject it is mot likely that a move will be made immediately jn the borough direction It wonld there fore Beem to be an opportune oocasion for those who faror a city government to move p tle matter We could name a first clcsa Much Married Mr Solomon LONDON Oct case of Edward Solomon husband of Lilian Russell who was arrested on the 23l inst for bigamy on complaint of his first wife Lily Grey came up for hwaring yesterday Testimony was given that when he was first taken

whi5n he married Lillian Bussel he was unaware that his first wife was aa he had neither seen nor heard from her for several years Mr Solomon was remanded pending the arrival from the United States a number of witnesses whose attendance has been se cured The magistrate refused Mr Salo mons request for a reduction of bail enough to have a lover Her mother had told her so and she did not want him to bother her any more From this moment the boys whole character was changed He told some of his comrades that he was going to kill Melissa and himself but they only laughed at him and no one thought he attempt anything of the kind In the afternoon he stooped Melissa as she was home from school with several children and said Melissa you remember what I told you at Siaysville1 without wailing for au answer he drew a pistol from a pocket and fired at her Twice he fired in quick succession and the poor girl dropped dead with two bullets in her head The other children ran away screaming and the maddened lover knelt beside the corpse of his sweetheart kissed her forehead and then putting the pistol to his own head fired twice and fell by her side in a dying condition both balls having entered his brain He lingered five hours before dying but never recovered conscious ness The funerals were held together to day that to help him I had placed myself ia a false position Now to add injury he de mands my aid to get from his wife He threatened that unlets the inouoy was given him before next Monday he would kill maim or shoot her so that she would be prevented from gaining a livelihood I told him that I didnt care to talk with him any further In answer to questions itness further testified that he was married that ho cor responded with his wife but did not know where she was as she had several houses in the country and his letters vere forwarded that he met Miss Cameron a year ago and came to know her well about sir months ago when her husband asked witness to be come trustee for
