These statements are misleading and fit lac. The Covina supervisorial district contain*) ouo (resident) ward in Pomona and the balance of the city constitutes one Hupen Isorial district.

The call for nlatenientn of the c.ounlry'n national banks discloses the grtitifying faet that, the national banks of (,'ovina are in an exceptionally H.trong position. There has been no scare among our people. There has been no run on our IwnkH. Cash has been paid out, when needed. Our biink reserves have boon ample. In short, Coviria has gone quietly along jiiHt as if Niich a thing as a financial scare had never been heard of. This town, in all its existence, never had a run on its banks. Our people have every confidence in their honesty and honor of our bank o/flciala BROADWELL'S STORE, COVINA Additional Courthouse Building. First steps were taken Wednesday by the Huporvisors for Los A nudes county's part, in the "city beautiful." Architects Hudson and Miin Boll were authori/od to make a preliminary sketch of the proposed annex to the Courthouse, to stand on land that is to bo purchased just south of the commanding site of the county building ut Broadway, New High and Temple streets. An immense teri-story building eventually mny adorn the site, giving the county needed room for n ball of records and for officials now crowded out of the Courthouse, Within a abort time the Supbr- vianrs will determine the beat means of acquiring the land deaired for the annex—whether through condemnation proceedings or by private pur- chnao. ArgumentH are advanced in favor of each plan. Tho land desired lies just south of the Courthouse grounds. It runs through from Broadway to Now High street, and hag an average width of about sixty feet. There are tieveral buildings on the property. Tho district attorney's office is inquiring into the titled of this property, to soo Unit the county, when it comes to acquire it, shiill find no Haw. Money Boon will bo at hand for the purchase of the land. It \vnn provided for in the last tax levy, by which nonrly 8SOO.OOO will be raised for buying the uito and putting in the foundations. As outlined in an informal din oussion by the Huporvisors, it is thu intent to plan for a building of ten Htoiies, although probably no more than four or five would bo built at the outset, Uu» ot.hern being uddud as needed. While the SrporviHorH uxjir«'HH regret tbat the county did not a few years ago buy the entire ri'mnindor , of the block on which the Court hmiht' stands hul'nro Niilmtimtiul improve- inentH went in anil thu price of the holdings iidvanrcd greatly they nay there is nothing to do now hut face the hit.uatini,, get what land can bi> obtained at a fair price, and then plan a building that will inert the publio needw for yearn to come.

Arcadia and Barbarism. If Arcadia does not prove to be a hundred times worse than Ascot ever | was with its crop of criminals, sui- Icidefiand in its general wreck and ruin, it will be because its owners 'or patrons voluntarily place a limit on its methods, und regulate the ex tent of its degrading influence,. Under the oridnary and expected logic of things, A read in will bo a gamblers' and thugs' paradise. Ft is under the control of no authority other than .State laww, and the on foreomerit of these in a community where the sentiment is nil of the "wide open" Hurt,, cannot reasonably be expected to be rigid. A rend in is to be wide open and plenty of it. Thoro la not, a city or town within '20 miles of it whose police force will riot be compelled to exercise eternal vigilance to protect the publio from the thugs, burnti and impostei'B centering about this gamblers' delight. Arcadia will be a rallying point for men who seek to live without labor by plundering their fellows, and who retrieve their losses by duy by means of robbery by night. It is just as well to speak plainly; this new enterprise is a plague spot because it is distinctly a breeding place and rallying point, for criminals and that class of people who refuse to earn their living by honest methods. Tho polico force ut Pasadena, for the protection of the city, will be compelled to adopt every possible moans to make the light-fingered gentry from Arcadia or Mania Anita fool that their presence in Pasadena is not, desirable. That a solf-reHpect- ing community has to be preyed upon by another, whose ideals are below those of a fairly decent barbarism, is one of the anomalies of local self government. Pasadena News.
