I'd Write u* to-day- Three Thousand Enthusiastic Divisionists Attend. Hurrah for Pomona county I Hurrah for Elliott, our next supervisor ! Hurrah for Potter, Collins and Jennings! These were the shouts that greeted the few "autia" who stood with the many hundreds of enthusiasts for county division on our street curbs on Monday night to watch the doming of the special train bearing nearly 1000 men and women who were corning to help in Covina's grand demonstration in favor of the new Pomona county. The antis must have wished that it might all turn out to be a horrible nightmare. But such was not the case. It was a stern reality. At Chino 125 people boarded the train, at Ontario nearly 300 more were added, and when the eight coaches pulled in at the depot at Coviua over 800 climbed from the train and forming in sets of fours, headed by the hand and many bearing torches and banners, marched to the Womaua Chub House, where the meeting was held. The parade and meeting was the greatest political meeting ever held in the San Gabriel valley. The train was met at the Southern Pacific depot by a committee of Covina citizens, where a procession was formed to march to the Cliib House. The marchers were warmly welcomed by the citizens throughout the streets. T,he Club House being too small to accommodate such a crowd, an overflow meeting was held on the corner of Citrus avenue and Badillo street. All the candidates for office in the new county were at the Club House, and occupied seats on the platform and in turn wore given a rousing demonstration. The people wore there and there with au overwhelming majority of the voters, all ready to shout and proclaim themselves for the new county of Pomona which is soon to he formed. Many who had previously been looked upon as "autis" were so surprised at the swelling tide of sentiment that they were completely swept away, and wore ready and anxious to fall in line with the majority. The meeting wus called to order by J. L, Matthews, who proposed C. S. Beardsley of Covina as chairman for the evening. The nomination WHB received with vociferous cheering. Mr. Beardsley on taking the chair briefly thanked tho audieuco for the honor conferred aud at once came to busiues by introducing Dr. Shepherd of Pomona. Dr. Shepherd stated that they had been accused by tlieir opponents of drawing the linos of the proposed new county HO an to affect the . voting unfairly. He produced a mup showing the boundaries marked in heavy lines which evoked a shout of "What's tho mutter with tho county lines? They'ro all right." Kofer- Iriug to tho automobile- demonstration ! made a few days before liy this anti. divisionists, ho wild, "Let them continue: thi-ir promenades arid for every automobile full they have we will come back m. them with a train load, (loud applause,. We have put the linen where the opposition demanded them and they are going I to stay there. I believe UUH part |of the county ought to be able to | manage it« own affairs, and when Mr. George YVhitcomb wi.ys you can not pass thin thing 1 determined 1 i would fight until doomnday if nee ' ensary to know if <T«eorge Whitcomb •owij.s Coviua. Covina for .-:ome years |bus been paving higher taxed than any other plach in I-'-* Angeles county and the large (arid ov.nein in fciirroijnding places have been paying the least. In the new county the .officials would have a smaller area to look after and therefore «.iir roads 1 would be better kept and our schooly better administered. This is not a political fight. It is a ranchers' fight. We can govern ourselves, aud, please God, we will, " The following signed statement from Geo. S. Phillips, owner of thousands of acres within the proposed now county, who has recently been quoted aa being opposed to a now county, was read : Pomona, Cal., Doc. '2, 1907. Pomona County Division Committee, Gentlemen: In regard to the article in the Ontario Record, as to my views on county division: I never gave any interview on county division to anyone representing that or any other paper. But that there may in the future be no mistake as to my position on the question of county division, I will say that if the new county can bo formed with the lines as designated in your petition to the Board of Supervisors, I am heartily in favor of it. But if on protest to the Board of Supervisors, the lines are so reduced that the cost of the new county government will bo burdensome to the taxpayers therein, in that case I am not in favor of the creation of the now county. (Signed) GEORGE S. PHILLIPS. A letter from Prof. Gates was then read, apologizing for bis absence aud stating that be was in full accord with the objects of the meeting aud that for years ho had been of tbe opinion that this part of the county should manage its own affairs. The San Bernardino quartet rendered a song entitled "Goodbye San Bernardino, Goodbye." Mr. Frank Balfour of Pomona produced a carefully compiled list of statistics to disprove tbe anti-divis- ionists' contention that the cost to the taxpayers to start and maintain : ?Jfc ;r lf&»*Bii«^^ the rate in tbe old counties, and conclusively proved that they could run tbo new county on a lower tax rate than . they are paying now. "Why," bo asked, "do you incorporate into towns? Because you want to take the government of your homes iutu your own bunds. So wo want to do the same thing with tbo new county." W. A. Johnst.ono of Stin Dimus was tho next speaker. Referring to the matter of good roads be stated that the general road tax was mostly spout around the gatoH of Los Angeles city and wo were uuablo to get much of tho mouoy to spend on tho roads bore. He wished them to remember that Sari Dimas was still on tbo map and still ready with tba* 8100,000 aud a site for a court house. Mr. Cogswell of Ell Monte explained tho steps be had taken in drafting a bill to obtain what be considered a fair way of ascertaining tbo wishes of tho majority at the election but stated that tho bill had been altered in tho senate. Mr. .Huoy of Uplands said, "Ladies, genlomon and fellow citi '/.enH of the county of Pomona, 'or I believe there will be no question of he remilt, when your ballots fall ito the box. l''or six days the children of Israel marched around the city of Jericho without much sip! parent results, but on the seventh 'day ttie walls fell.

Board of Supervisors Have Power to Correct Errors. * In the seventh subdivision of section 2, pngc 279, of statutes of 1!>07, ! In nu flct providing for the formation, organisation and classification of now comities, tho Board of Supervisors is granted the power to correct clerical errors or uncertainties in petit ions. County Surveyor Noble, by bis chief Deputy, Fred L. Jormyn, reported : to the Supervisors that ho had chqcked over tho western boundary of the; proposed county of Pomona, and hud found it erronious in several particulars. Surveyor Noble's letter to tho Supervisors is us follows: Los Angeles, Deo. 5, 1907. To the honorable Bonrd of Supervisors. Gentlemen: I have checked over the description of tbo proposed western boundary of Pomona county and Hud the same erronious. Lcnviug the southwest corner of Sec. 24, Twp. 1 North, Range 10 West;, S.B.M., the description reads "thence west to tho west line of Citrus avenue." Citrus avouuo does not extend as far north as tho southwest corner of Sec. 24, Twp. 1 North, Range 10 West. The description roads "thonco southerly with said center lino (referring to the center lino of the west half of Sec. 36, Twp. 1 North, Rango 10 West) and tho center lino of Sec. 1, Twp. 1 South, Range 10 West, S.B. M., to the north lino of Broadway." This is incorrect, as tho center lino of Sec. 36 is '4 mile east of the ceu- the line of-the west half of See. 1. Continuing the description reads, ^y^SI^^;^^ line ,pf said roadway' to the west line of Citrus avenue." There Is no street on record under the name of Broadway in this locality. Description reads "thenco southeasterly along tho went lino of Citrus avenue to tho intersection of tho center lino of tho north half of Hec. 12, Twp. 1 South, Rungo 10, West." Tho west Hide of Citrus avenue doen not touch at'oroHaid center lino. Yours truly, I. D. Noble, Couutv Surveyor. By Jormyn, Chief Deputy. As a map was filed with tho petition thoHO errors arc technical mid will bo corrected by the Board at tho Una! bearing. TODAY we arc sixtccu years old. These sixteen years have been marked by a steady, consistent growth. And right MOW we are growing more rapidly than ever before. The Reason? The people of this vj»lley appreciate a constant effort toward improved service, better accommodations, courteous treatment and reliable goods. Buy elsewhere and we both lose.
