Despite the inclemency of the weather, which can bo attributed to tho Almighty, and the frowns of the local central Democratic committeeman, the lion. \V. A. Welch, the debate between tho Socialists and Democrats in the Womtins Club House on Thursday evening uttracted 8 fair-sized audience. The absence of prominent local Democrats was noticeable, but the edict, htid gone forth from their tireless and "peer- lees" leader, W. A. Welch, that to debate with the Socialists was to lower the standard of pine Democracy. The meeting wna presided over by D. S. Foster of Azusu avenue, who is a candidate for the state senate on the Socialist ticket. The question was, "Resolved, that the election of William J. Bryan will be of more benefit to the American people than the election of any other presidential candidate." Tho affirmative was handled by Howard C. Tripp of San Gabriel, Democratic national organizer of Bryan clubs in Los Angeles county, and a close personal friend of Bryan. He prefaced bis remarks by stating that he was not here under tho auspices of the local Bryan club; in fact, he was given to understand that they were either.op- posefl or,all-aid to .debate with the Socialists, but as'far as be was concerned, when the Democrats could not meet the Socialists in fair debate, be was willing to band the reins of government to the Socialistic party, "i hold," said Mr. Tripp, "my commiBsion as national organizer from the national committee and do not have to ask the consent of any local central aomniitteemau as to when and where I shall hold meetings, " Rev. T. W. Williams of Los Angeles was the able champion of the Socialists. He lost no time in attacking the record of Mr. Bryau from the time he first entered politics, as regards the working man. "Do you," said ti.e speaker,, ''fancy for an instant th-ifc the Democratic party orators moan >• wrA of what they say about that party being friendly to workinginen? It is a clear, cold fact, proved by the record and not disputed, that the Democratic party has had absolute sway in the South for forty years, and in these southern states where the party leaders had every chance to make good, labor is unorganized, unions are almost (in- known, wagws are low, and conditions that surround the wage earners aro deplorable. " Following the debate forty minutes were consumed by the speakers in answering questions asked by individuals in the audience. Ladies' Night at the Country Club. One of the pleasantest social functions of tho present month was ladies' night" at, the Covina Country Club on Thursday evening. The Country Club house, unique in many ways and eminently artistic, was gay with Japanese lanterns, red flowers and greenery. With tho logs blazing brightly on tho mammoth hearth, the interior on this occasion was a scene of cheer and beauty, a striking contrast to tho drizzling rain which fell without. The guests were entertained in the spacious music and billiard rooms, where tables were arranged for the game o£ "live hundred." Tho prizes were won by Mrs. K. (). Simpson, a beautiful silver spoon, and Mr. A. K. Evans, a dainty watch fob. The games were interspersed with excellently rendered vocal and instrumental numbers. The evening closed with serving recherche refreshments. , Those who enjoyed this pleasant social evening were: Mr. and Mrs. A. P. KerckliofF, Mrs. Porter of Santa Barbara, Mr. and Mrs. William Crook, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Collins, Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Pratber, Mr. and Mrs. R. O. Simpson, Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Clapp, Mra.

Mr. Wright's duties will be those of secretary and manager combined, and tho work of increasing the lines in the Covina valley will bo taken up under his direction. Tho business of the company has grown to proportions wherein it is necessary that tho secretary and manager devote bis whole time to the work, and Mr. [iouser did not feel that this waa possible for him. Mr. Houser will retain bis interests in tho company. Tho changing of the lines in A/.usa and Gleitdora, which has boon in progress for some time, will be brought to a close this week, and new linos will be placed in other localities.
