< N SENATOR WILL RESIDE HERE B. F. Buller of Idaho Says Covina is the Homeland. Senator R. F. Duller (if Idaho, who owns 36 acres of orange ami lemon land in Covina niul immediate vicinity, is inakitu? an extended viaib here, stopping at the Hotel Vendoirio and visiting his son, Charles F. Buller, who has been located for some time on one of the ranches. Senator Buller has made several tripa to California, hut on this occasion lias expressed himself as being mote pleased than ever with this state, especially with the San Gabriel valley and the country em- biaced in the Covina district. During the past week he has beeu negotiating with a local contractor for the erection of a large business block in the center of Covina on Citrus avenue, which is to be occupied by the Warner, Whitsel & Co. grocery store. The Buller block will be 101 feet in length, 30 feet wide and two fitories high, with basement. The upper floor will probably be used as a public, hall or fitted for lodge rooms. The building will be built of pressed brick. Owing to the fact that the senator has very extensive holdings in Idaho and business which cannot wholly be ignored at the present time, he would not definitely state that he would locate permanently here immediately, but he intimated that such was his Intention eventually. "You may say that in all probability I will make Covina my home for the rest of my life," he said to an Argus representative. Both Senator Buller and his wife are delighted with the Covina district. Senator Buller's ranch holdings here are divided into several ranches. All of the 36 acres are in bearing oranges with the exception of three acres of lemons. There is also a ranch of 25 acres in Walnut Center, which will be laid down to alfalfa this year. The Buller block in the center of 'Covina will be the largest and finest building in the town. The scene of Senator Buller's activity during a large portion of his life was laid in Idaho, where he is known as the owner of 3,000 .acre: of finely improved land, covered with cattle and grain, and for fifteen years he was the- president of tbs First National bank of Hailey in that state. The senator resigned that position last year and established a bank of his own in Boise with a capital of 8100,000, known aa the Bank of Idaho, RETICENT AND MODEST. The senatorial term in the state senate of Senator Duller does not geles without giving the home mer- : chant a bid for the irade. It is nn- juat discrimination." Senator Buller also \vent on to say Mint although it was difficult to convince eastern ranchers and capitalists that orange hearing land was worth the price asked fur it here, it \vas the dutv of the town to attract as many as possible, as the only method of convincing them was to get them iere where they could see for them- ' selves. Senator Buller snid that he : was skeptic;;! himself before coming. In his experience the senator aiiid he liad found that a hoard of trade ivis of little value to n town. Some con- ! jerted action, however, should he i kept up to legitimately advertise any ; ^immunity. When the senator made j Ilia first trip to Covina, he said that i no one in Los Angeles seemed to j know where the town was situated, uut since the electric cars had come the town is being advertised every bour of the day by the big oars that pass down Main street on their way to this town. The senator expects to make an extended stay hern while superintending the erection of the new building. Although the active president of his bank in Boise, it is unnecessary for him to remain in Idaho to manage his business, he states. In the coming of Senator Buller to CovitiH, the town is indeed fortunate. A business man of proven worth and integrity, in the full vigor of the afternoon of life, ho will lie- come of great value to the town in mapping out its future and in bringing together a concerted movement for greater prosperity. His wife is a woman of delightful personality, making friends of all who come in contact with her, and she is a woman of talent of whom any community might be proud. NOCTURNAL PROWLER. Takes Chamberlen's Trousers Small Sum of Money. With Citizens of Covina will join in regrets with Rev. George Chamherlen of the Brethren Church in the visitation which he received early Monday morning from a sneak thief, who stole the pastor's trousers, containing a sum of money. The Chamberleu household was sleeping soundly, when Mrs. Chamberleu was awakened by some noise, and thought that one of the children was walking about the room. When she spoke, a tall man straightened up at the foot of the bed and moved toward the door. The thief scurried down the stairs and tnrough the kitchen, carrying the minister's trousers with him. In the kitchen he stumbled and spilled out small silver from the minister's pockets upon the'flour. Mrs, Chamber! en awakened her husband and City Marshal Muhnert was called by telephone, hut it was doomed advisable to wait until morning before the hunt was taken up. Jt was then found by following the expire for some mouths, but he is tracks of the marauder that ho had exempt from duty at the present time as the legislative halls of Idaho are not in session. Senator Buller is a man who does not court publicity, and although he has become a millionaire through careful invest- gone into a nearby cornfield, and it was hero that the trousers were found, lying near an old suck which the thief had discarded. The pockotn had been rifled. A little further on another sock was found, the thief ment and application to business, and ! evidently taking them o(f because of has at all Mines been a forceful awl j Sf ,jii,, w ' them in walking over the and then replacing prominent man in Idaho, he has little to say of himself, prefering perhaps to allow his deeds to speak in place of words. When speaking of the Covina valley and its prospects however, the senator approaches an near to enthusiasm as his quiet nature will warrant. "I have beeu all over the state of California," said the senator one day this week; "and have found it delightful in many places, but Southern California and especially this part of the valley where Covioa i.s situated is the ideal homeland of the human family. I think this is the prettiest spot I have ever Be my life. My wife is also complet'-ly enraptured with the country. Vou inny way that I havo every intention of making my hero." TRAUINU AT H'OMH.
