SANDERS, ATTORNEY FOR CITY OF COVINA Offices 32S-333-335 Wilcox Building, Telephone, Home 425 LOS ANGELES, CAL. PETITION IS THROWN OUT Supervisors Deny Petition for Pomona County. The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors have by their acts shown to the petitioners praying for the formation of Pomona county that they will not j tolerate such foolishness (?) fnr one moment. Yesterday, without even ,the farce of a hearing, they ordered that the said petition praying for the formation of the new county of Pomona be denied and proceedings dismissed. These,are the facts in brief: Friday !;eing the day set for hearing the case, which has been tbecheif topic of condsideration in the districts vitally interested for nearly six months, the forces on both sides, represented by able counsel, appeared before the Board of Supervisors ot Los Angeles county and after the formality of filing a $5000 bond by Po- moua to defray the cost of an election if called, the "antis" from San Bernardino wore given an opportunity to prove their case. They introduced as evidence 270 affidavits, purported to be registered voters who had previously signed the petition praying for the formation of j the new county, and now asking that their names be stricken from said petition. In addition, to this they ander o»tb , that r 83vibfv tbe .-v - ., u._-rf*jJi t .J*Jif i r .*jl_ i/^*Ji=*!L** i.J*VJ.j.iij»rt£dLi&^- Mlchlganders Will Picnic. On Saturday, Jan. 25, the former Michigan people residing in Southern California will hold their Third Annual Picnic at East Lake park, Los Angeles. Of the many holidays and fete days, none are looked forward to with keener anticipation by the Michignuders of this section than this annual gathering and the corning one promises to be a bigger success tbnn ever. , Arrangements, are already being made for the picuio and the pinna that are gradually being perfected indicate nu immense gathering of Wolverines on the dato mentioned and ' will far surpass any former gathering, if not double. The officers of the Michigan Society are putting, forth evory effort and are planning to have this (.bird annual the grandest time and the greatest gathering ever held in Southern California. At the picnic a year ago the number signing the register was much greater than the officers had expected. This year a more complete reuis- ter will be provided, giving room to all. The registration books will be arranged by counties which convenience will be appreciated. V This opportunity for meeting old friends and making acquaintances among those who came from the same state is warmely welcomed by all Michiganders. The reunion enables thousands of former Wolverines to meet each other who could not otherwise come together. B. BIDWEI«l< ATTORNEY AT LAW Hoir? phone 3164. Glendora, Cal. Jg, P. WALLACE, M. D., D. O.

Satisfaction is guaranteed in every respect. If yoi; give us a fair trial you will not regret it. We also carry in stock every kind ;<f rubber goods. the great register of San Bernardino county. The county clerk of San Bernardino concty also testified that the great register of said county contained 1828 voters residing within the proposed territory to .be included in the new county, the petition as filed by the divisioniata contained 1045 names and that by subtracting the 270 who had naked that their names be withdrawn from said peti tion and the 83 names that did not appear on the great register, itreduc- ! ed the petition' of the divisioniats to I 1 692, lacking 222 necessary to secure 51 per cent of the names upon the great register. Upon this showing the Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles county by unanimous vote denied the right of the divisionists to verify the petitions and affidavits of the opponents in San Bernardino county to the formation of Pomona county, denied the divis- ionists even tho right of hearing and arbitrarily terminated the proceed- in ge. These are the facts and they are ample without comment. The Argus has been consistent throughout this fight. We have worked for the best interest of the citizens of Covina an we saw it. We have conducted a clean, rigorous campaign. We have shown where abuses in county assessments in Covina and elsewhere existed. We have already, ibrouub the crnurteBy of AtHfSBor HojikiiiB. secured an adjustment of the Hume. Wo have SUD- rjorted the formation o! u new county because we Relieved it was for Covina's best interests. We believe 'it now. We have no apologies to offer and no favors to ask which would require of us the surrendering of our rights 10 advocate what we believe to be right. Tbe opponents of county division in Covina havo also fought the (Itfht :out on hroud lines. Their campaign I has been entirely free of pt-rnonul j abuse. They have left no atone tin i turned to achieve succesH, but thorn has been no bitterness engendered, I no friendships strained, KU often the aftermath of u hoi political cam paign. (Jeotlemen, let itb all shake. CommlMioncrs at Covina. gett of Pasadena, George Long Beach and Martin Marsh of Angeles—and Supervisor* Manning, conferred Saturday with a number of local men. They said that they favored, if the right of way could . be secured, the construction of a permanent highway along the Pacific Electric ro t id between El Monte and Co- viun. This route would cover nearly a third of the proposed road between Los Angeles and Pomona, and bo four miles shorter than through tho Spadrn Valley. The money saved by tho shorter route will more than cover the expense of building a bridge across the San Gabriel 'River west of Baldwin Park. High School Orchestra.

The receipts for the Covina post- office for December, ]i)07, wore 21 ' per cent more than in December, j 11)06. It is nearly everywhere conceded that the postoHloe receipts very nearly indicate business conditions In any city or community. On this basis, Covina has made a gratifying increase in business of lute. With this.increase of business it. is gratifying to note that the Christmas rush at the postoffico was handled better and more oxpoditiously than at any year in the history of the office, and this with no additional clerical force. Postmaster Matthews states that this was largely made possible by the excellent facilities tor handling the mail furnished by Dr. J. D. Reed, lessor, in the now office. Covinnitoa have reason to bo proud of their postoHJoo building, for there is no town of similar fii/.o in Southern California that can boast of such commodious and convenient quarters for handling Uncle Barn's business.
