The I ourth of 1908. It, is gratifying to note from reports that there is a more g tendency f.o ohserve the eo of the Fourth of July this year than there has been for twelve years lire- ceding. The preparation is general, especially in tho West and Middle Went, There is not so much demonstrative regard Hhown for the nation's natal day along the Atlantic const, especially in the great centers Jiko New Vork, Philadelphia, JJoston iin.l J'ali.imoro, whom the alien element predominates and where money in the place of manhood is the essential standard of life. ft is gal.ifying tn note tho revival ot inte.retd, in Independence Oay, for it, IH the iNation's Forefathers' JJuy, JOvory- ono, except those of anarchistic tendencies, will pause long enough to take a thoughtful glimpse at the record of how this republic, happened. It i.s in the intelligent observance of the day that tho interest, In tho nation's story is ke.pt, alive. Let us continue for tho sake of POH- j teril.y to stand by the traditions of its observance in the simplest, old fashioned forms, with flag and drum, and song culogium and prayer. Blessed ho the day, whatever might have inspired It. The Alhambnm. Taft anil Sherman. Since the foundation of tho government no man has come to the presidential ofHco so adequately prepared by experience and training for its duties IIH William Howard Taft. Me IH Hfty-otU! years of ugo and in the very prime of his powers, He ip both a sclioJiir and one acquainted with buHinese affniru. Uy the time ho was forty yearn of ago h« had won success at the bar IIH a practicing lawyer and Inter, had distinguished himself as a judge. In his more recent career as an administrator lie has been for a considerable period in each post, tho governing head of two essentially foreign countries (Juba and the Philippine Islands and tho head of one of the great departments of our mitlnnal udmifdra- tion. In the character of special envoy he has visited the principal countries of the world and como into direct personal re!ations with their foremost men. It, may lie said of Mr. Tuft, recalling his experieucon at, home and abroad, that his acquaintance with the governing forces of the world today in iimro comprehensive Hum that of any other man, certainly than that of any other man of similar responsibilities and pros peels. ,James H. Sherman ol Utica, New York, named by the Republican party as its candidate for the vice presidency, while a lesser llgure than Mr. Tuft, is none lh» less of n man of character and pni'.itiacl cainibilil.y. Like Mr. Tall, he in of the old American slock, one whose mind and character stand upon the back ground of a long line »t' wholesome American breeding. He is the sou of a judge and himsell a lawyer, though for nearly twenty years bis energies have been given to public son ice as a member of CoiigresH. Mi 1 , Sherman is by temperament u follower rather than .1 leader; lie has been in recent years a strict ml in in ihtrution man, that is, one dependably on the Hide of the President in all his act ivil ies.

Jl, will be remembered that the present tariff on citrus fruit was secured largely through the persistent, and unwavering efforts of Congressman MeLachlan, and it again behooves the orange growers of Honth- ern California t.o nee that he is again returned to Congress to safeguard their interests. Covina not Satisfied with Commission's Report. Intense intercut, is being manifested in the forthcoming election for the bonding of I/os Angeles county for 81!,.000,000 for the construction of .'SOU mile.s of permanent highways. No improvement can be attempted that will do more for tho rapid development of the county than a complete system of g )od roads. It is, however', essential that when thi-i debt is being incurred that the roads should be constructed where the tax fiayers, those who as-sumo tho obligation, will receive the greatest benefit. In this particular we believe a mistake has been made by tho highway commission, and a serious one, iri not adopting the report submitted to them by the Covina committee asking that, the highway connecting this city with Los Angeles be constructed along tho Han 'Ucriiiirdino road and thence west through Hnvan- nah arid Alharubra, making a direct and the only direct highway from "Loa Angeles through tho Bun Gabriel Valley. Huoh n highway would bn- coine tho groat commercial road of this valley. It would reduce tho distance between (Jlendora and Ax.usa to LOH Angeles many miles over the foothill boulevard. It would mean that thousands would travel this road where hundreds would use tho road through i'Jl Monte along the south side of the right of way of the Pacific Electric. The oili/ons of Covina do not ask that the Kl Monte survey be abandoned but tho line as recommended by the Covina c'ommit- tou be included in the grind, system of highways proposed. Our citi/ens should get busy and potitiun the Ho aid of Supervisors to have the report so amended, for it, is incon- ccdvable to believe that any law was deliberately framed, providing for such vest expenditures of money, that would deny to tho taxpayer tho right of protest or hearing as to where this money should be expended.

Menz-"Ease" Elk Skin Work Shoes There will be so much good wear and solid comfort left in them even after a year ot service that you wou't feel like leaving- them behind. For a man who is on his feet all day long we never saw a shoe to equal the genuine Men/5-' l Eease" for service and comfort. In a way Menx- "Ease" shoes hurt our business—it takes a man too long to wear them out. While wearing a pair of Menz-"Ease" he would wear out two and sometimes three pairs of the ordinary kind'of work shoes that you buy at other places in this town. We want to sell as many shoes as we can, but we figure we are more apt to keep your trade if we sell you a shoe that will give you extraordinarily long service instead of a shoe that gives you only the ordinary service you are used to.
