P. W. Eblers, tbe president, and J. V. Hoffman, tbe vioe-pre*ldent of tbe new Interstate Oa* Company, were in Coviua yesterda/*' looking over tbe plant of the Co Vina Valley Gas Company. They expressed themselves as well pleased with Coviua and with tbe opening north of here at Azusa and Gleudora for their company. Accompanied by Mr. Howland and Mr. McLaughliu of Coviua (hey went over the route of tbe gas trunk line from tbe gaa works to A/.usa, and afterwards over to Glendora, returning in time to catch tbe 4 :50 car to tbe city. We learn from Mr. Eblera that the pipe will be laid just as soon as satisfactory bide can be scooted tor tbe pipe (in carload lots) and for the laying of tbe trunk line to 5th street, Aznsa. Mr. Hoffman expressed bis opinion that very soon all tbe territory be twenn here, Azusa and Glendora would become a second Pasadena, free telephone service between three cities now makes the communities practically one; besides, tbe union high sobocf) at Azusa helps to cement tbe tie which binds our northern neighbors. Mr. Hoffman also suggested that we should call tbe attention of tbe property owner to the necessity of advertising Co- 1 vina, and said the Interstate Gas Company would pay more than its share, of the expense of publicity for Covina and its environs. That struck ua aa a good idea, W* inf«nd;,to rewtsd^iljstr Hotf ^ Aznsa and Glendora and have over 400 consumers signed up in those two cities. Gas is promised these cities by August 1 and we have no doubt from the statements made and maps shown us Uy Mr. Ehiers that our two sister cities will be burning good gas by that time.

Tbe Argus last week stated that it could see no apparent reason for the organization of the second Republican Club in Covina when a flourishing and wide awake club with a large membership already existed. Judging frou) tbe lack of attendance at tbe Lincoln Roosevelt meeting called for last Saturday evening in tbe Womans Club House this eenti- meut is indorsed unanimously by the Republicans of Covina. Senator Cburles Bell of Pasadena addressed an audience of ten, giving a brief and interesting outlire of the work accomplished by the last session of the California legislature. On account of the small attendance it was not deemed advisable to organize a club, which was tbe object for which the meeting wan called. Monday Afternoon Club. Tbe annual "reciprocity meeting" of tbe Monday Afternoon Club was held on Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Club Houae. and proved a great success in point of numbers and also in the pleasant* ness and popularity of tbe different events of the afternoon. The hall had been converted by busy and artistic bands into n spring bower of beauty, graceful sprays of blossom-laden boughs, peach, apricot, almond, cherry and bridal-wreath, being used'in lavish profusion. About fifty visitors wore present from other clubs, including Azusa, Monrovia, Irwlndale, Pasadena, Hollywood and Leug Beach. Short accounts of tbe year's work of their nluba were given by Mmcs. Reicbard of Irwindale, Hetb of Azusa, Northup'Of Monrovia, and Miss Cbamberlen of the Pasadena Shakespeare Club. Miss Daviee of the district federation spoke of the room which has been provided tot the use of that body in *"" *'" geles.

Increase Capital Stock. At the regular monthly meeting of the directors of the Coviua National Dank on Wednesday the prt>lin>imiry steps were taken to increase the CHJJ- ital stock of the liarik to f5(i.(i<M». The regular quarterly dividend was also declared. Real Estate den Lose. Judge Houser of the Superior Court rendered a verdict iu favor of tbe defendant this week in the suit of Warner &"Winder vs. S. P. Jen- nisou. This was a case in which Jennison appealed from the decision of the Justice Court wherein Warner & Winder were awarded judgment for a 'commission on the alleged sale of a I ten acre orange grove. Jcnnison I stated that be bad changed bis mind about soiling when tbe real estate men produced a purchaser and the Superior Court held that he bad a legal right so to do. School Election. At the last moment the friends of Mr. T. K. Finch insisted in placing hit name in nominationa against Dr. G. D. Jennings, who IHIH been an avowed candidate ior tho position of i school truwti'o for the pant two weekx. ' Mr. Kitich did rifit want the office and opc-nly said so. There were 1H1 votes c;aHt of which Dr. Jennings received 1-1II. i - -- • Notice to Voters. j To the voters of Covitm: UeiiiK llm notqinei) of the regular ' iiiiii-iiart mm nincus tor city rnar tibal, I ' lo make thin public: | statement: It clef! ted I will serve 'and I shall dit-rriHrK*-' the duti«« u' the offifi; to the bfst of my ability. T. A. MuCOKMlCK. Dreamer Jumps Through Window. William Jennings, a roomer in tho lodging house in the Crouch building, sat up until twelve o'clock on Tuesday night, reading "The Count of Monte Cristo," and us a result threw the whole house into tut uproar about two o'clock in the morning bv jumping through two panes of glass, Into the main hallway, where be was only restrained from rushing into tbe street in his night robe by tbe prompt action of one of the landlords. Jennings said afterward that be gueaved he was dienmiug of the sensational plunge of Monte Cristo into tbO sea from bis prison. Whatever the reason, the young man went bead ffnt through the double window* etttcain. aud all, and only received two amall cuta ou the unit and a feeling of having done something foolish. Other roomers thought a burglar bad fallen through tbe skylight trom the roof. Jennings is being unmercifully "guyed" about the atyijr, but it was foituuato tbe wlnduj|J|o leaped through did not open, on ttw street. Marshal Fairly Selected.
