TUESDAY MOANING, APR.IL 4.
ggyy . .
This number begins the fourth
volume of this paper. We liave no
supurfluous Ink to waste on compli
menting ourselves or our readers on the
vent, but lire content to leave the
judgement of whether the Republican
has been a success or not, with our,
subscribers. If a welcome visitor it
will probably be welcomed for years
to come; if not, it will contiiiun to
bore the people of Forest county, at
least as long as wo shall continue to
have an existence, which we hope will
be for some years to come. We feel
encouraged to proceed, and shall do
so, hoping that it wilt be read with as
much interest as our labor on it de
serves. Wishing our readers a pros
perous year, as we expect to have, we
go to press.
The Crawford County system of
making nominations lias been adopt

Somo of the old editors of the
country, regular old fogies, who are
near sighted, are trying to make the
ladies believe that wearing low-necked
dresses produces sore throat. It's all
humbug, gotten up by those old fo
gies who can't see. Ex.
We are not near sighted, nor yet so
old that we can't see, but we can see
enough of a lady if she wears dresses
that come clear up and fasten close
around the throat. If the ladies can
brave the biting frosts and cutting
winds of winter, with the neck and
shoulders entirely bare, why, they're
tough, that's all we have to say.
We take the following from the
Ruing Sun, published at Emlenton :
On Saturday night last the Drug
store ot J. urosser. also used as an
Express Office, was entered by burg
lars who succeeded in extracting 825
from an express package. The build
ing was entered Irom the lrontdoor by
means of a false skeleton key. No ar
rests have been made but we think
that it would be a great deal more sate
for one or two individuals not to be
e lught in the vicinity when anything
of the kind happens after this, if they
should be lucky enough to miss an ar
rest this time.
Rev. Virtue has so far recovered as

The following from the Warren
. Henry D. Grunder, one of the early
German settlers in this county, died at
the residence of his son, John Grunder,
i i Pleasant township, on the 20th of
March, aged 75 years. Ho was a na
t've of Bavaria. In 1817 he come to
t .is country landing at Philadelphia.
In. 1832 he removed to this place,
where he was well known and highly
respected for his earnestness, honesty
And sincere piety. A good man has
gone to his reward.
We hear that the First National
Bank of Warren proposes to erect a
new Bank building the coming season
in connection with the new brick build
ing to be built by Mr. Burgess, direct
ly opposite our office. .Then plan is
to make it a fine structure, with a se
cure vault, fine finish, and all the mod
ern improvements and safeguards for
that kind of business. This institu
tion needs such a building arid we hope
the plan may be fully carried out.
The Charity Concert last Wednes.
idar evening was a gratifying success.
A large audience assembled and seem
ed .pleased with the playing and fring
ing under the direction of Held. The
flinging by tin Sttngcibund, Misses
Stella Mann and Anna Mcuke, was
loundly encored and especially com
plimented. We clip the following from the
Pitiiole jd Vicinity. Pithole

attraction lor oil operators the coming
summer, ana wnatwitn the completion
of the many wells now coin? down in
that vicinity, and the exteusiou of the
i'itbole Vallev lailroad' to Shamburcr,
rieasanivuic, enterprise and Titus

not so finely p relumed.
The Hooker farm, lying to the
southeast of the former site of Prather
City, was sold a few days siuee fbr
1105,000 to Messrs. Phillips Bros., and
die bluffs are fairly bristling with der
ricks already up or being constructed.
The saud rock in this locality is fully
as thick as that of the "Hats" which
were so productive a few years since.
This farm contains 90 acres.

About four o'e'rt t yesterday after-
tioon, n youth of fourteen years named
John Myers, entered Mr. C. W. Mead's
jewelry store, 31 Spring street, for the
purpose of obtaining a watch worth
about $8, which ho had left there fbr
repairs. He refused to pay for repair
the watch and it was consequently re
turned to the case. Myers hung about
the store, and managed while no one
was looking to take a gold watch val
ued at $65 from the counter and put
it in his boot. Mr. Mead missed the
watch almo-t immediately, and upon
searching the youth the watch was
found on his person. He was taken
before Justice Clark and committed.

About two o'clock Saturday after
noon a young man named Oliver Mc

causing instant death.
We clip the foliowiug from
Petroleum Centre Record:
A despatch received Tuesday morn

Rhodes well No. 2, Rooxer farm, has
increased its production to 1G0 barrels
daily. It had been doing between fif
ty and sixty barrels.
On complaint of- a woman that he
had insulted her, Mr. J. B. Fetterer,
of Rouseville, was ejected from the
3:39 train going north, at this place,
yesterday afternoon, by the conductor
and brakenian, and handled, in a rath
er rough manner, his coat being torn
completely off his back. While we are
not prepared to Break of the truth of
the case, so fur asthe alleged insult is
concerned, from a long acquaintance
with Mr. Fetterer, we do not believe
hitu capable of descending so low as
to ofr an insult to any one, much less
a lady. Tho alltiir will prubably end
in a law suit.
From Mr. Owen GalTiiey, we learn
that his liquorstore, Washington street,
was brokeu into about half-past 11
o'clock last night. The thieves enter
ed the building by b. caking in the
back door. On getting in they broke the
lock of the desk containing the money
drawer, but failed to secure the antici
pated pile of greenbacks, as Mr. Gaff
ney had removed his money the night
before. The rascals then left, taking
with ill em four boxes of valuable cigars.
This morning the cigurs were found in
the possession J. R. Taylor and "Slip"
Lewis, hailing from Buffalo, N. Y.,
and restored to the owner. The two
men immediately left for parts un
known. Such are tho facts of the rob

who was taught 11. the sand rope coil,
while at work on the Columbia farm,

Wo take the following from the
Corry Republican :
James M. Bunn, Esq., spejial D. G.
W. T., Thursday instituted a Temple
of Honor in this City. Tne organiza
tion is called Corry Temple No. 35.
The time of meeting has been fixed on
Tuesuay evenings, and the place Good

The Temple starts out under good

The alarm of fire was given atnhout
9 o'clock on Saturday night. The
cause was the burning of a frame barn
on Centre street, near Hare Creek.
The baru was the property of W. B.
Lowe, of Wattsburg, and was entirely
consumed. Loss, about three huudrcd
dollars no insurance. Some seventy
five dollars worth of door and blinds,
stowed in the loft, were also burned.
The fire companies were promptly on
haud with their apparatus, but the
flames enveloped the entire building al
most instantly, and had its own ' way.
The fire was unquestionably tho work
of an incendiary, and the cause that
prompted the tiring of the building
doubtless pure enssedncss. There is a
clue to the perpetrator that may lead
to his detection, and in caso he is dis
covered we trust the full penalty of
the law will be ractod out to him.
A little after twolvo Tuesday night,
the alarm of fire wos given. A dwell
ing hoiioe, on the south side of Smith
street, owned by Philip Mcgber, was
discovered to bo on fire. The building
was a two story one with a wing and
was entirely consumed. The house
had been vacant for about ten days,
and the fire, from all appearances, was
the work of an incendiary. The value
of the building was about $800 in
sured with Holiister Davis, & Co., in
the Jtna for $500. The Hook and
Ladder apparatus and one of the Hose
Carts reached the fire, but as there was
no opportunity for saving anything,
the engine was not brought to the
Intense excitement is raging concer
ning oil lands in Cranberry township,
nearly opposite Reno. Three wells
are about completed in that vicinity,
and the prospect that they will prove
large producing wells is very flatter
ing. One ofthese well.on the John Milton
farm, owned by McDonald, Hcfl'er
nian Findley and Simon, of Oil City,
is now being tested. This well, known
as the "Mollie well," was drilled by
Peter Nolan, an experienced operator,
and is 907 feet deep, with Jhirty: feet
of wild equal in quaility to any found
iu the oil region. The company owning
the well havo a leaso of thirty acros.all

This well is southeast from Reno,
near the Uredin and Milton wells, and
has a heavier sand rock and on the
belief that the territory still further
east would prove more productive,
some parties, on Tuesday, leased
twenty acres adjoining the leases on
which the well is located, paying there
for one half the oil and 620 bonus per
A large amount of land has been
purchased and leased in this vicinity,
and Messrs. McMulleu, Patterson
and Dickey, of Petroleum Centre, and
Messrs. Irwin & Bauni, of Frank
lin, are the largest holders.
The prospects are very flattering
that this territory will prove produc
tive. A well owned by West, Forley and
others, located on the Baum tract,
Patchell Run, commenced pumping
last Friday, and is yielding 20 barrels
per day, heavy oil.
The Rocker farm, lying to the south
east of the former site of Prather City,
near Pithole, was sold a few days since
for $105,000, to the Philips Bros.,
