J'omoim Tirn<'H: The Now Courtty Facts, publisher] at, Ontario by (iiiy Dyar, ia t.o be rnnde r ) ' !rn > nr " !nt '" It was originally dcHignod f.o promote t,b« formation of a now county, but it 8f!f:rn8 Mr, Dyar IIHH found that important public niutter« arc not published in the locul pqporfl over that way, hence the need of another paper. Mr. Dyar ha« made the Facts a live paper. He is at home in making n newspaper, arid hun «hown excel lent ability for the work. Calvin llnrtwell of Pasadena, who for the pant year haw been Hhoriff Harnmel'H chief deputy, haft been appointed by tho Board of Super- viHorH to fill the vacancy canned by tho enforced resignation of Coroner Ijfuiterninn. FInrtwcll for four yearn nerved LOH Angeles county an lieuorrl- er, making an excellent, record. Them are no truer or more honorable meu than Cal Hartwell and the general public \H well pleawed by the notion of tho Supervisory Manufacturer's Record, Baltimore: Much hiiH been said during the last few yearn about t}ie reduction of railroad rates and through public fiction and the competition of mil roads a great many ratew have been reduced. Latterly there haw been very conHiderablo IcgiHlatiori reducing rates. There is, however, another wide to tho <|UCHtioii from the viewpoint of public interest, and the country's need of more railroads is in nowise changed by tho f>re f Yent ilnauuial uonditionis. It goo& hi) to nay that oven should there be a slight let-up in traffic, this would not change the fact that our transportation fiioilitiea uro wholly inadequate to the volume of our trade and that the count,! y IH rapidly growing while tho railroadH are not. The Into Senator (ionium of Maryland, 10 or 15 years ago, very wisely Niiid that "the greatest problem before the people of America IH that of din tribution. " Distribution, of course, iiiiplIdH traiiHpoi'tatirin. Mvery day Nince I linn IIIIH einphasi/.ed the correctness of Senator (ionium's .judgment. Under such oonditionn Um coHt of transportation in of far less importance I bun tho (|uestion of securing tho facilities noodrd. We already have by far the chenpoHt railway rates in the world rales that are I ho marvel of people of European eounl.ricH. What we need now i.s not low rates, freight or pas- Kongor, but a vaut ineriiaso in facili- lien for handling hiiHincHH. Of nil (he absurd movementH of the lust, 1 '2. months in the railroad and political worlds, nothing elmi quite equals the ell'orts to forco down railroad rutus. Money for railroad expansion cannot .poasjbly be hii'.l under present conditions, The railroad bum'tipss must lie given an opportunity Ui make protltN largo i<nough t<> tempi capital .from everywhere to seek invi'Ht.niunt in railroad bucnritieb.

They were greeted by H full honso the opening night and everyone seemed to be more than pleased with the sample. These evangelists bavf? just closed a very successful revival at Kivorsido, where there were ninety-two additions to tho local congregation. They are both preachers and both singers. W. T. Brooks is tho older mid .'" the one who does moat of the preaching. Arthur Brooke, the younger, directs the'musio and sings a solo every evening. Both evnnge-i lists speak very enthusiastically ui the prospects as they saw them and predict that the Covina meeting will surpass the one just closed at Riverside. Tho Brooks brothers are alumni of Kentucky University, of which institution Rev. Couley was an instructor. 'Rev. and Mrs. Conley and the Brooks brothers and Mrs. W. T. Brooks, who with a little daughter, Virginia Ford Brooks, are on this trip, are old friends and the revival will bo a season of reunion of these KontiKikiaus. There will be services at the Christian Church every night at 1 :30, including Saturday night. A large adult choniH has already been organized and preparations are being made) to form a "Sunbeam Chorus." Bv^ry >crsg person it Covina will be Wel- come to this chorus, which is to be one of the attractive features of the revival. Friday night, especially, will be Bible-school and young people's night. The evangelists say the services will not be more than one hour and twenty minutes long, and that they believe it as essential to close on time as it is to begin on time. ^\ generous supply of "Glory Songs,"anew evangelistic edition, which books were brought from Kansas City, are in use at the meetings and the music will be well worth going to hear.
