Tho Argus in for county divinlon becRiiqe wo believe it. is for Iho fntor- ests of the taxpayers. It will at least do away with taxation without representation. Did it ever occur to the c.iti/eus of Covina that tho A/UHH geritlemf-n who aro now so solicitous about Covina's water rights in tiio county division matter represent tli« Hiime interests tiiat claimed tiio whole Han Gabriel nnd compelled tho Covinn Irrigating Company in former years to spend 810,000 to defend its rights? We don't want to open old sores but we are inclined to accept such friendship with a degree of caution. It has been repeatedly stated by tho opponents of county division that, all the supervisorial districts of tho proposed now county wore partly in the City of Pomona, thus enabling that, city to dominate! all county politics. These stfitcniPtits are misleading and false. The Co- virm supervisorial district, contains one (resident) ward in Pomona and the balance of tho city constitutes one supervisorial district. In the passing of Lord Kelvin tho world loses one of its most brilliant intellects. _ His contributions to science have been notable. And despite hie advanced ago bis wonderful mentality was still sookitig tho solution of problems which have baffled tho minds of tho greatest. In his dissent from tho theories of electric energy founded upon tho discovery of radio-activity ho loaves a Jogaoy to science, which, though negative, may prove to be uot tho loast valuable of many. This year's lynching record will show a decided improvement over that of 100(1, tho total for the current year to date being forty-two, composed of three negro women, four white men, and thirty-live negro men. The record includes only ortS'js of unmintakahlo lynching, leaving out those in winch the victims were killed by pursuing posses while resisting capture. The record lor hint year was seventy-two, being thirty more than that of 1!)07. Crimes charged against thone lynched range from robbery In assault and murder. It is worthy of notice that none of tho victims was lynched for such petty or trivial crimes as in several previous years. A large majority of the victims was guilty of criminal assault or attempted criminal assault. Holidays Will Iind December 21st. Governor (Jillott lias given out the following information: "No more holidays will be declared after Saturday, December 'Jl. The banking institutions of tho state have improved to that cxttnt that holidays no longer are necessary. " Governor Gillett is soimnvhat iu- cnUHod over the action of tho hankers of Han Francisco in giving out to the press HtuUiinnnt.s to tho ollYct that the) are not in lived of any more holidays and in the next breath begging tho o.xocutivo to ciintiuuo declaring holidays. In other words, the governor doed not relish being made a scrapegoat liy the ImnkiTtt. In speaking atmut the mutter Guv ernor (iille.lt Miid : "The trouble ih this: Tim Han Krancibco hunkers who aro really in need of holidays do not cure to admit the truth.
