Dr. Bennett will arrive shortly iu Coviua and he has stated that he will build a fine residence on the property at once. He is a wealthy and prominent professional man of quite a little reputation in his own community, and has decided to make Covina his home, owing to a decided liking for the San Gabriel valley in preference to other cor-1 tious of California. He states that | he will build a home costing in the neighborhood of 810,000. The second ranch sold by the H. G. Hagerty company for Mr. Bailey is also in the same vicinity, compris- in 20 acres, half navels and half vacant land. This is sold to Mr. Wardman of South Pasadena.

These were tho last lots on this beautiful truct. Real estate transfers have been unusually brisk iu this vicinity iu the past t^vo weeks, and it. is an idica-, tion ot a steady market for the coming winter. All the local realty firms sav that there is a heavy call for property in Covina from distant sources. Especially baa it been proved that Coviua is badly in need of cottages, for the demand has been far in excess of the supply in the past uioutli.

Rigging of Covina has been destroyed through an »U.- tanhment being filed upon the Kig- giiiH ranch fur 812,000 (-0111111 ission money by the firm of C. B, Guthrie, real estate agents of LOH Angeles. The Sweat!: properly in Texas consisted of holdings appraised at *HOO,000 and embraced nearly ,'),000 acres of land, two cotton gins, general atom, buildings, cotton iu bales, etc. Tho Riggins property lies to the .southeast of Covina, and was valued in the deal at 8180,500. The Guthrie company claims commission money at the regular commission rate, while Rigghia states that there was an oral agreement to paj tho company 82,500 for making tin transfer, and no written agreement of any kind. Because of the attach ment, which the Covina rancher says wan put upon the ranch before tho sale was consummated, the negotiations must cease, and Riggius has brought suit in the Superior Court for damages in the extent; of 850,000 against the Gutbrie company. The first action taken was that of a motion be- for*Jh« tioart yesterday afternoon {or b'utnrifcompariy^at time "oi 'attachment, which was 1700, and which the plaintiff Riggins claims is altogether too small to offset the nature of the attachment. This motion claims that the attachment wat> obtained from the county clerk through fraud and misrepresentation on the pan of the Gutbrie company, iu which this company claimed Unit Hio proceedings would bo nominal and tho property free to manipulation for purposes of business. It is further claimed by tho plaintiff that irian- muoh as the doal was not closed, no attachment can legally ho brought on the grounds of collection of corn- rniHuion for Hale. Tho Gulhrlo company, In an interview on Thursday, stated that in all probability a compromise would be effected outside of tho courts, but Mr. Rigginn, in a statement to the Argus yet-.tnrday, said that ho entertained no idoa of compromise, and would fight tho. matter to t.tiu mill.
