Smith Daniels Covina 252 C9 Charter Oak 3 62 Total 2S5 ,131 With a quiet determination to rectify errors made in past elections, and to give to Covina the educational progress it stood in need of, the voters of the union high school district turned out on Monday last and carried the school bond issue triumphantly. There was not a shadow of a doubt regarding the attitude of the district. The voting was carried through as a strict business proposition. Every voter seemed to know exactly where he stood before coming to the polls, voted and passed out of the crowd. What differences of opinion may have arisen about the location of the high school, have passed out bf the ken of man for all time, and every citizen without exception ia showing a desire to push the good work forward with all de- apatoh. The'site chosen by the voters was the locution wanted by a big majority, so that no doubt remains, and it will undoubtedly be demonstrated in the coming years that the choice is a wise oue. Coviua is going to grow rapidly, and it will center around and radiate from Citrus avenue according to all indications at present. The spirit which prompted tbe voting uf the bonds will be sent broadcast over the country and the town will receive more legitimate advertising from the building of this school than it would he possible to receive if the same amount of money were expended in booming the town through ordinary advertising channels. The next step to be token immediately is the sale o( the bunds by tbe board of supervisors and the letting of tbe contracts for the erection of the building. The board of trustees acted wisely in making the bonds to read at 81000 each, as they will be all tbe more easily disposed of. The sooner the new building is completed tbe better for the union district, as under present conditions the union district is paying 1180 per mouth rant to the grammar school for tbe building which formerly belonged to the high school district. The local board of trustees feels jubilant over the outcome, an the members interpret the action of the voters on Monday HH an exoneration of the hoard in tbo technical error* j of tbe past elections, which in un- ' doubterlly u ftuu. The board will take ' steps immediately to push the work of erecting the building as rapidly HH possible. MAN KILLED BY ELECTRIC CAR F. A. FitzGerald in Auto is Hit and Fatally Injured. Prof. F. A. Pit/Gerald, teacher of music in tho Covina schools, died at 9 :HO o'clock last night at the General Emergency hospital in Los Angeles of injuries received from a collision between his automobile and a Pacific Electric oar, after having lived in a comatose condition from 9:50 o'clock in the uiorninu, tho time of the accident. The cause of death was concussion of the brain. FitzGerald's left leg was broken in two places in the accident, his pelvis bone was crushed and shattered, and his skull was so injured that it resulted in death. Prof. FitzGerald's death has cast a glootn over the entire community, as he has endeared himself to everybody since his coming hero about a your ago. The entire town is filled with genuine mourning. The accident which caused thn death of Prof. FitzGorald occurred at the junction of Sierra street aud the Pacific Electric track at tho time the Pacific Electric err leaving Covina at 9:50 o'clock reached the crossing. FitzGerald's automobile was crossing the track in a southward direction. When the machine was on the tracks in the direct path of the electric car, tbe engine "went dead" and refused to move tbe car. According $);%.;. Jfl^^j;.-?!^^.,-'-'* 1 rancher who saw tbe tragedy, tbe electric car was about 300 feet from the crossing and whistled violently to the man in the automobile. The machine was carried over 100 yards up the track on the fender of tbe car. The top part of tho machine wuo thrown to oue side, and it was in the canvas that the unconscious body of Mr. FitzGcrald was found, huddled in a heap. Dr. William Capps was Unit on tho scene, and placed tho man in a condition to bo moved to the hospital. As the car was about to leave for Los Angeles, Dr. Reed arrived fiorn the country and accompanied the stricken man to the emergency hospital. When ho arrived at the hospital it was found that nothing could be done to save his life. It was found that the blow which had blackened his left eye hnd communicated to the bane of tbo brain, and had produced the coma- tone condition which remained until his death. That the Ford machine in which ho was Heated at tho time was responsible for bin death IH u certainty according to automobile exports, although they Htato that such un accident might have happened to any machine. It was only a fow days ago that Mr. PitzOerald hndo godspeed to IHH wife, who WKH K"i»K back to her old borne in Lima, Ohio, Hiifforiug at tho time with an attack of appen dicitlH.

Ho told friondH in Covinu only a fow bourn before tho tragedy that it WUH bin intention to rirgatii/o it choral hociety in tho town.

Justice William Marshall acquitted the man ou the grounds that the act of shooting William F. Benle was justifiable homicide. When the announcement was rondo by the justice, after a long day spent in the frightful heat of the courtroom, the crowd of over 300 people who had been waiting for tho end, broke into cheers and hand-clapping. Corley, after having presented tho most stoical of fares and demeanor since the examination, suddenly burst into tears when ho was acquitted, and for several minutes ho struggled for his composure, while ladies crowded around him to offer congratulations. The acquittal seemed to ho popular with tho public, although there IB a decided feeling in thin locality that tbe question was too grave for tbe preliminary to dispose of and that it court. Others eay that Justice Marshall iu freeing tbo young mr.u acted in accordance with justice, and ho ia commended for having the courage of bis convictions. Th« fatal shooting of W. F. Boalo occurred on August Oth at the Cook ranch in Walnut Center, a fow milcH from Covina.
