There has been an active movement in orange groves during the past week, and it is noticeable that the parties who have paid the highest prices are those who have been in the orange business for the past fifteen years in the Coviua valley. J. M. Stanton reports the sale of the south five acres of the Miller & Emery orange grove at the corner of Citrus and Rowland avenues, to F. D. Uaebke of Irwindale, for a consideration of IgOOO. The place has 83 Valencia trees on it, the balance being navels. This was formerly the Madison Bashor homestead. Huzzard & Welch report the sale to A. R. Evans of live acres of the Aschenbrenner brothers grove on the corner of Hollenbeck and Workman avenue. The purchaser paid $9000 for the property. There are 100 large Valencia trees on the property, the balance being in navels. Mr. Evans purchased the property as an investment for his sister who resides in England. This was formerly the A. J. Wilkius place. Twenty-five thousand dollars was the cash price refused by ,!. M. Smith this week for bis valuable ten acre orange grove on the San Bernardino NON-PARTISAN CAUCUS. consiste of, ,flve Candidates Named for the Forthcoming City Election. At, a non-partisan cn'ucus held iu the A.O.U.W. Hall yesterday afternoon candidates were named for the various city offices to be filled nfc the election to be held on April 13. The meeting was called to order nnd Dr. G. D. Jennings was named as chairman of .the meeting, while A. M. Peace was chosen as secretary. The following were nomad na candidates for trustees: E. H. Lahee, K. P. Warner, L. L. Ratekiu, W. P. Watts. Of these the first three received the highest number of voles, Mr.- Watts, however, running Mr. Eatekin a close second. For clerk, A. M. Pence was the choice of the meeting. For marshal, T. A. McCormink was the nominee. For treasurer, W. M. Griswold defeated V. O. English by two votes. This caucus was participated in by nil tho lenders ot the various parties, being tho most representative ever held iu this city. Over fifty were present. A new law enacted by tho lust legislature makes it necessary lor all nominations for officers in cities of the sixtti class to be in tho hands of tho town clerk thirty days before the date of the election. This makes tonight the last d«t« for flliug petitions for candidates. Heretofore if the petitions were filed within twenty days of the day of the election it was all right, but now it's thirty days. I is altogether likely that further nominations will be made by petition, but tip to the bout of going to press OSTEOPATH Phones: Office 175; Res. 23 Hours 9-4 TFirst Nat. Bank Bldg. Covina, Cal.

From the profits of the grove he has paid this indebtedness ; and made other valuable investments. Geo. Covert, proprietor of Hotel Vendome, has sojd his five acre grovo east of the city to D. W.
