Our "aunties' 'say that "one set" of officers can operate the government more economically than two sets. That depends on what you cull a "set," In LOB AngeleH county a "Hot" meanB from five hundred to eight, hundred men. For Instance, at times the assessor's office In operated by OIH-J hundred and ninety-six men; the tax collector's office by ninety-seven; the auditor's by seventy-five; the sheriff's by thirty-five; clerk's by one hundred and ninety-five, etc., etc., besides matrons, stenographers, "delegates," and Beml-occaBlonally, "extra help," In such Burns ns $1750. The work requiring this army of men Is so congested that the county Is compelled to rent rooms for many of our county officers and their deputies, and the work IB scattered over the city of J^os Angeles, ami the county IB paying enormous rents—good interest, on more than three-quarters of a million dollars. The county will be compelled In the very near futiro, to iBmie bonds for building additional court home, jail, and almshouso equipment---!!, in Imperative, and cannot lung be delayed. The ground has already been purchased at I lie agreed price of $:t()U,000, and the buildings to be erected cannot cost less than double that Bum. And when completed, the Increased congestion, resulting from the anomalous growth of the city, will In turn render the equipment utterly Inadequate—and additional equipment will again be the demand of the day. And so on, ad Infinitum. Ami thin brings us to the real occasion for the city and county government--as well us the necessity for creating the new county of 1'omoim. In a large city, the abnormal growth will ever render present equipment inadequate, and <:all foi additional expenditures- —re- suiting In a slate of congestion of titislnesH that is not only confusing, t'-llt unsatisfactory, inexpedient, Im-x- pensive. Pomona county's share of the public business can lie done more economically and more expedltlousl.v "at home," than In the scattered quar- tern which now house many of the county officers. In a compactly nettled county, citizens enjoy a unity of intere.stu and a uniformity of knows every officer, where public patronage will be equitably distributed, fi.-onuiny will prevail, and justice will lie done to all.

The attendance In the San Bernardino Business College thia fall is a record breaker, more than twice what It. was a year ago, and by far the largest in the history of tiie school. Probably no other school in California has ever enjoyed the growth and prosperity now accorded to this Institution, which is enrolling students from Oregon to Mexico and many other states. According to the San Bernardino papers this remarkable growth Is due, first to the extraordinary demand for help at hand—some salaries In the various departments of the Civil Service, this achool having arranged with the authorities at Washington to hold In San liernardlno semi-annual Civil Service examinations for fili different (lovemment positions and tills being the only school In California making a specially of training for the 11. S. Civil Service and assisting young people to secure Ciovernment. positions. Second. The famous Lightning Legible Khorthaml Is taught there by Its author In half the time and for half the cost of the old systems. Third. The school has recently spent many thousand dollars putting In business offices, banks, •!() new typewriters and other Improvements. It Is today one of tho best equipped In the West and has a specialist In charge of every department. Any of our young people Interested In the work can no doubt get particulars by writing the school. ijs FOR SALE 5000 Acres of choice orange, fruit and farming LANDS in the celebrated San Joaquin Valley On main line of railroad and near g-oocl towns.
