THE NF. WT COUNTY PROJR T.
The project fr forming a new ennnty out
of portion" of Crwforn Warren, and Ve
naugo counties, with Titusville as a county
seat, has been revived this winter. Senator
I.owry has introduced to the Senate a bill
for the formation or the new county, and
there is strong prolwbllity that it will
pass that branch of the legislature. We
have filth to believe, however, that the
measure will be killed In the House. Hith
erto we have regarded this project as hardly
"orthy or notice, and have consequently
wn s'lent in regard to it. But it is now
time to spesk out upon the subject, InaV
nch as there is some danger that the
scheme nay be carried through the legisla
ture. In common with everybody else in
this part of Venango county, we are op
posed la this measure, regarding it as en
tirely a matter or speculation. We don't
relieve that outside of Tlttisvilla a hundred
men in the three counties approve of the
scheme, Tbey do not wish to add to their
already heavy burden of tnxatloo merely
for the benefit ot Titusville. The people
along Oil Creek valley am unalterably op
posed to any such project. The people of
enango are well sMisllod with their pres
ent situation. Tbey desire no change, and
will strenuously fitful ngaicst anything ol
the kinds Why wouldn't It do as well te
make Tittissille a county, then it could
be csnnty and county seal all to
itself, and have the privilege of paying
for the fun. But to speak seriously the
people to b affected by this measure, and
who are opposed to its consummation,
should let their Apposition he known and'
felt at Hhrrfsbnrg. These new county
.'homers and speculators should be thwart
ed. There can be unsound argument adduced
in favor ot tbla proposed new county. We
shall bare mora- to say upon Ibis subject
Tuc production on the Pierson Farm now
averages 276 barrels per day. This ts a
falling off of nearly one half since Novem

this farm, and Ore new ones going down

are eagerly senght after, but tbe owners are
aot at present disposed to sell leases.
