COVINA, August 22. 1%8. Our Ticket Taft For President Perkins For Senator Sherman For Vice-President McLachlan For Keprcscritativc ALL GOOD MEN NOW. Covina. will have the honor of Hend-, ItiK two delegsiteH to (he Hl;ite f:onven- tion from the Sixty-eighth assembly dlKlrlct., Col. F. AI. Chapman and Dr. <',. D. .Jennings. UcaldeH l.hln honor, it. IH a thing of pride to rem(!mber thai Covina IH becoming more and more a. convention town, anil It will be highly commendable If efforts ar« pill forth at all timcH t.o bring all manner of conventions hero, for It iidverl.lHCB l.he community and brings biiHlneHH. There wfjro Heventy-nlrie delegat.cH hero last, Hal.urday, ut which time the Llncoln- KooHuvolt. faction In ihln Hocl.lon wan formally prewented wll.h lla winding- ,Hhcc-t. The L.-H. League knew that the ,-presentation waH to be made, and several membci'H of lhl» defuncl. party were proHcnl tf) tcnde'r their heal'tfell IhankH for the moHt. timely and Hiill.- : ablc gift, . ; The obHoqulcn were conducted in Ilccrt'H hall, AlphonBO Mooro of Whittier acting as chairman, and Klmer W. Hart, of San Dlman aH Hccretary. Nino ' (lelegateH to tho Ht.atc convention were elected, all Taft. Republicans, those beside the Covina men mentioned being: Harry iMoHH of Itlvera; S.,, W, Barton, East Whllllor; B.'Fish, Pomona; E. E. Armour, Pomona; Dr. A. L. Smith, Monrovia; W. S. Taylor, (Jlendora, and Hobarl. WllllaniH, LordH- burg. The L.-ll. delegates centered on (!eorg(! S. Stunner of Chiremonl as (heir choice, and cut everything else i'roni the lleket, "slngl<;-Hholllng" Stim- injr In a hope that they might Fuiuneze through one man an a delegate, hut it was of no avail. Alvln Currier, the grand old rancher of Spadra, who has put up many a good light since the early California days, was early on the spot, and worked like a fanner getting in hay- on a cloudy afternoon, In an attempt to swing lln- delegates In his favor as senator on the Lincoln-Roosevelt ticket. Currier is a good lighter, and, It may he said, a good loser, and, needless t.o nay, he lost. Ira Lee of I'omona, who was Cogswell's opponent In the Sixty-eighth, was one of I he "upturned faces" at the convention, hnl he made no attempt, to swing tilings In his favor, and his friends concede his defeat, slating that he could control but t weniy-fonr of the possible scvenl y-nlnr votes at Iliv convention. The convention was mild as to sensation, as the Leaguers had all been driven lo cover hy the primaries. The gt-mle hive/.e In the tn-e-tops points lo the fact that Ihr pood men in the l.cuiMie parly arc blowing toward tin- regular parly, and thai before the big ballot of all Is lal rli there will only In a falnl line to show where the temblor split open ilin Republican party in California. What Will You Do, Gentlemen? What will yon c'o on Monday, gentlemen? Will you allow a feeling of apathy to keep you ;r,v ?y fi im the, polls—will yon consent to the IsHuancc of tho school bond? th; in 1 , i : iagre majority vote, or place the issue in danger of dnfnat by defaul' boca -)e errors have crept into affairs psrfomed by human hands? Will it not be far . ore a creditable thing to hand flown to our children, not only the legacy of educational progress hafore years give them ap-, preciation, but the complacent fact that the action was unanimous in their, interests? Will you once more spend a few minutes of your time on Monday j in assiBting the Covina Board of Trustees to rectify the mistakes resulting from the moat intricately worded law upon the California statutes? It Is not the errors in technicality, annoying as they may bs, that figure In the qnestipn., It is the necessity of progressing in our civic provisions, even as we are pro- j grassing in our private lives and fortunes. Wo want to be PROUD wrien the j next decade speaks of the decade past, not shamefaced and filled with stammering explanations. Would It answer at, all twenty years from now if you should Hay to your children that you became weary of voting bonds the law invalidated, fiiving that argument as a reason why Covina could never catch j up to the educational advantages of the towns surrounding it? One year| behind may mean o,;s year always behind. j ' Centuries ago a man went through the streets of little Grecian towns,i teaching his Blmple logic to those who would give him audience. The people j of many villages turned with a grimace as he passed, or hurled an epithet] with a coarse laugh. He told them nations would rise greater than Greece,! that but one of Civilization's fingers had touched the possibilities of the world, j A few followed him to Athens, the greater portion shrugged their shoulders | and remained, From that Pagan teacher has sprung what is known as the Grecian School of Philosophy, not yet dissolved or undermined. Who,remembers the technicalities, If any existed, surrounding the teachings of Socrates? A smile pansed around the hall the other evening, when the county superintendent made the statement, that, although he was not a young man, he knew that if he lived the alloted span he would see Covina a community of 40,000 people, a .smile such as Socrates saw while founding the School of Philosophy. It is true. In the words of the superintendent again, we could not keep the people out of this country of California if we trained guns from the top of every hill and built a Chinese wall the length of our coasts. We must vote the highest figure In bonds for education that the state will allow us to vote, and vote it at once. A year from now we will be one year behind. The question after all, is not whether we are in danger of losing the bond IHSUO, but whether we are to be saddled with the stigma of squeezing It in, because of apathy and indifference. The question of the school bond Issue need not bo discussed here. The entire community Is familiar with It. The message which IS important is the' necessity for carrying the bonds TRIUMPHANTLY, so that when our splendid sons and daughters are winning honorably and well, on a footing with their fellows, we can rest complacently In the thought that we constructed the Great Highway to the Heights we could not ourselves attain. Vote for the bonds on Monday. Enroll your name in the School of Philosophers. BOTH CANDIDATES PLEDGED. Thanks to I ho Argus for Its article hint wf!ol< entitled "What Thompson HltmdH For." Tho publication would Hurely not have boon mad« without ThoinpHon'H authority, arid he Is thereby pledged to support, as state senator, six specified and numbered legislative enactments. Those alx specifications are', word for word and number 1 for number, th<s "legislative platform"''of the Llncoln- 'Qoooevelt Republican League, adhesion to which was the'sole requirement for membership of the League. Mr. Cogswell, an assemblyman', and Mr. Thompson, sis Hfiiato,, arc. thus u.edK.i;d to the mime legislative! platform. PiVila- Ing the Argils for publishing tlic'.r nlodgcH, I hope, li will sei- hu'.v tlic-y keep thfim--ArmiB v/iiH called "the till- Hftcung one" -and Inform ll.s r<-uiU'.'.'..

In tho course and pnw-SH of their official doings. A majority of the six enactments to which Thompson and C'og.iwell are pledged received I he approval of the l(epui)lleMi) county convention, which Instructed and pledged the nominees lo ihelr suppon. I rather think Lincoln, Roosevelt and Tal'l would support them all. If they were now electors of Los Angeles county, and I hope a majority of the legislature may be in truth I.incnln-Koo.scveli-Tiit'i Republicans. S. I 1 . .!. Leave for England. J. W.
