COVINA EARNS HIGH PLACE Makes Unqualified Success of Carnival. future. Much of the success of tbe day was due to auch men as Col. F. M. Chapman, Mayor E. H. Lnliee, J. O. Houser and the prominent, merchants of the towu. Success for Co- vinn means concerted action. That's what we'll have from this on. CALIFORNIA CONVERT. Concerted action brings results. When the Declaration of Independence was being born a man said: "We must all hang together or we'll all hang separately." The people of Covina have been bunging together of late, and the result, is that, out of the numerous thriving towns of Southern California, Coviiin has been recognized in the front ranks with the best of them. The name of Covina has been in a dozen metropolitan newspapers during the past week repeatedly—Covina has been doing something. We have always been a hustling little community— we have hustled this past two weeks with splendid results. The carnival and political all day meeting of last Saturday was a bigger, better burst of enthusiasm than took place in any town of tbe valley, not excepting any city of seven or eight thousand people. It is a policy to be kept up, repeated ad libitum, until Southern California gets the idea deeply imbedded that Covina is a place where live people are conducting live business. We don't have to boost and boom anything in an exaggerated manner—simply to insistently cull attention to the thing? we have got—and then call attention to them again. There were three thousand people in Coyina last Saturday. The crowd was distributed over a good deal of territory. The stores were Blled •with shoppers, tbe football and basketball games olaimed a large quota, and the grove on tbe school campus was crowded with men, women and children from all over the valley, listening to the final benediction from notable speakers in regard to tbe greatest American game, that of electing a president. Tbe newspaper man interviewed every one of tbe prominent speakers. Senator Frank P. Flint said: "I have been in this community before. I have not been able to keep pace with it in my mind while absent. While I was being whirled about the country in the automobile parade, I lost the thread of political affairs and fell to wondering where would be the end of tbia progress in the upper San Gabriel valley. The growth here is nothing short of marvel ona." Representative McLnchlan snid : "When I begun to speak here today I found an attentive, intelligent audience such as I do not often meet even in this great state of educated people. I felt t.he influence of this thoughtful attention, and I made an effort to speak as I have not spoken in this campaign." Hon. Lee Gates said : "Did 1 please you with that address? Well, the great crowd before me was an instrument that was in perfect tune, and it iupsired rue. I want to come again sometime and talk to a Coviua audience if Covina is willing." Ex-Mayor Webster Davis of Kansas City said: "I told the audienno in my speech that I was coining here to live, and you bet I am. I want to live my life out here in the Upper San Gabriel valley." And besido these words from the distinguished visitors were expressions on all sides of satisfaction from the crowd on the "way Covina does things." Thw merchants of the town responded to the demand for concerted action arid made the day an industrial day of good bargains and good fellowship. The stores along the main street did a rushing business all day. From J. F. Home, the grocer, from Warner, Whitsel & Company, from Bioudweli and many others comes the statement that the effort was well worth while and a big advertisement of the town and its merchants. A big day for them all. The idea is well worth repeating. (J. F. Clapp, proprietor of one of tin- drug stores, stated that something of tlila nature should Li; done every few months or oftener. Mr. W. W. Nash, another pioprieior of a drug store, said that tie had the biggest trade of any daj since he i has been in business here. Other* tell the same story, ami the lact remains that, not only were the people well entertained, hut they found opportunity for good bargains and took advantage of it. Tbe Seventh Hegiuieit band of Pomona, employ- \ ed by the merchants for the day, wa-i satisfactory in every way and did much t') k<-ep the crowd in a good buoior. J. J. Fitzderald of the Hotel Veurlouie (-aid that his trade duiimg the day very satisfactory, and e •.pibs&ed a hope that the town wuulil keep up the good v,<;rk iu the Ex-Mayor Davis, Disciple Drollery, Finds the Homeland. of Ex-Mayor Webster Davis of Kansas City is the latest convert to the climate which surrounds the Upper San Gabriel Valley. Nothing is too fulsome in his estimation that can be said of Covina and vicinity when it comes to the real joy of living, and this sojouruer from the great city of the middle west is competent to judge, as he has a wide knowledge of the American commonwealth. Ex- Mayor Davis made a most entertaining speech to the 3,000 people assembled iu the campus grove last Saturday. The former chief executive of Kansas City was not troubled with the caies of running for office, or out stumping the county for other candidates, but spoke at this big Republican carnival for the joy of being "in at the death," so to apeak, for it was the last rally of the campaign in the San Gabriel valley. The ex- mayor is an interesting talker, and not having auy particular political broadsides to fire, he told stoties until the audience forgot that the rough seats were hard, and laughed and shouted like care-free children. "I came here with a speech all prepared," said the ex-mayor. It is a good speech. In fact it is a splendid speech. I have it now in my breast pocket, but I have listened to tbe speakers until I am forced to admit that my speech has already been given by those who have gone before. But it will fit the occasion four years from now just.aa well, for Taft will be a candidate for re-election and Bryan will still be running." The ex-mayor is a most genial man. He says be ba<* a preference for Coviua above all the other places he has visited in this state It is hoped that he will make Covina his home, something which he has already hinted at. Tarry thou with us, genial Kansau. We need you and you need us. Frost on the Pumpkin. Charles E. Paige, one of the recent purchasers of a ranch in Covina, has returned from a transcontinental trip from Los Angeles to the New England 1 states on the Salt Lake train, the Los Angeles Limited. Mr. Paige says that this route is n _yery pleasant method of taking the trip. The trip to Chicago ia made without changing cars. Back in the hills of Vermont and New Hampshire, Mr. Paige Bays that the autumn foliage was all in its "lory of colors when he was there, and before ho left the air was beginning to be nipping. lie saw plenty of snow in Kansas and Nebraska and was glad to see the blossoms and green follatr«,on tho slopes before running into Sacramento. Mr. Paige says: Coviua'a good enough for me. Covina Orange Groves We have a large clientage buying good orange groves. If 3-011 want a quick sale, list jour grove with us.
