FOB A STATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM. Out of the intricate maze of legislative matters, the pulling and hauling to gain this or that advantage affecting some little corner of California, there occasionally arises a constructive idea —a big wholesome measure upon which all of the people can lay aside their sectional prejudices and join hands to urge forward as promoting the interests of the entire state. Such a measure is the conception of Governor Oillett to create a fund of $18,000,000 by issuing 4 per cent bonds for the purpose of building a great system of modern highways throughout the state. It is a plan which should invoke the deepest interest and most enthusiastic approval of every loyal citizen—every man who has the material welfare of California at heart and whose deep desire it is that his state should show the greater measure of development and progress. The governor's scheme to carry this into effect is something new, Init carries with it sound business sense, which precludes the possibility of squabbling enmity between different sections. Th<! money, once the bonds are voted and sold, is to be expended under the sole direction of Hie state's engineering department, with no special salaried p<i- iitie.'il ' ; rond commissioners" fo prey upon the public fund. The state is to redeem the bonds, iis they mature, from a sinking fund provided for tin; purpose. The various counties are !i> pay only the interest, on the bonds, each county to pay inlert-st only upon the amount which lias boon expended within its borders. The slate; is to maintain the highways, once they have been constructed. With th(i completion of this great arterial, highway system, cnnnc'c.ting every county seat, traversing valley and coast and routes of magnificent scenic attraction,, built in the most approved manner known to modern engineering, the various counties can build their lesser roads up to equal efficiency, making a complete system unequaled in any state in America. True, some of our counties are already well inoculated with the good roads virus. Sacramento is spending a million on new highways, much has been done by the coast counties and through the San Joaquin valley, Los Angeles has ever been ready to expend money upon public improvement and San Diego has set a shining example through combination ~<J? "public and pri- -vaie • witerpr'Jse. But there is no gen- oral system, no uniformity, no connection. Under the proposed plan every county in the state will practically be given an opportunity to borrow money at 4 per cent, interest to build its main state roads, will have no principal to •pay back and will turn the finished road over to the shite to keep in repair. That's ;i good enough pxijinni- tion, isn't it? Surely there enn be 710 objection upon the part; of the individual county. And as Governor Gilleft has pointed out, no state could derive greater beiir- fit from a comprehensive system of good roads than California. Good roads are needed over which to haul our fruits to market. They will develop o>-r rural sections. The state's manifold attractions will bring thousands of tourists to automobile or drive over-scenic. California with rhe certainty of good roads and tlui reasonable certainty of ideal weather conditions. It will induce settlement, adding to wealth and population. The advantages arc immeasurable. Two measures affecting the good roads issue are now pending before the legislature. One calls for the submission of the bonding proposal to the vote of the people. The other provides for an apprnjiriat ion for preliminary work to map out the course of procedure. Let your legislator know thai you and your neiylib'irs are inter- '•sli'd in the passage of these two HII-HS- nre-i. There will bo ample time In stmlv the matter in delnil before Hie bondin" <|iicstiou is submitted to vote. Kvorr < 'ali I'D 'iiia n slu in Id it. Your enthusiasm will grow as yon progi-o^s.

Gillett of California, when lied visited recently this fair gem set in its semi-tropic surroundings. No wors more fitting could have been chosen in describing-Covina, the chief town of the far-famed San Gabriel Valley Every boulevard and driveway for miles in every direction is Hanked with peerless groves, and the very atmosphere in the early springtime is laden with the perfume of the orange blossom and the trees laden with the golden ripe fruit. Along-these tirm, oiled driveways, ornamental vegetation of the common and rarer sorts grows in profusion, and withal are the lovely homes set in spacious grounds, where roses thrive in such varied richness that they appear voluptuous even amidst indescribable floral wealth. Sublimely eminent over the landscape that blesses the eye from Covina is the majestic peak of San Antonio and those of lesser altitude, but none the less beautiful, of the Sierra Mad re range, with their snow crowns shining and sparkling like jewels. Covina has no rival in Los Angeles county for beav.ty of situation. Enhanced by the markings of civilization, its scenic loveliness, viewed in broad perspective, is hardly surpassed anywhere. There is little danger of incuriug any tourist's resentment by advising him to tarry at Covina for more than a casual glance about him. Many things he will treasure in memory are to be seen in and about the pretty burg, BIRDSEYE VIEW OF COVINA To the homesceker Covina extends a standing invitation. The right band of hospitality is all ways extended to all worthy people to cast their lots with ours and enjoy the grandeur of inountain. the perpetual gladness of vernal life, fruiting and flowering- in perennial concert, an atmosphere blending- the azone of mountain tops with the tincture of the sea, the conveniences of civilization, and an opportunity of securing handsome returns for their labors in the cultivation of our groves. Covina was incorporated as a city in 1901, and at once took rank as one of the best governed cities of California, which position it holds steadfastly. Our population is estimated at 2500. Covina is located twenty-one miles east of Los Angeles in the upper San Gabriel Valley. It is connected with Los Angeles and other points by the Southern Pacific railroad and the new line of the Pacific Electric, which furnishes . hourly service, with a running time of 35 minutes, through many miles of the finest orange groves. The public schools of Covina are the pride of the people and the buildings arc constructed after the most approved modern plan. In all respects they arc up-to-date. Our high-school certificates arc- accepted in the leading colleges and universities, East and West. Grammar school graduates accredited in the high schools of California ruid all other states. The people of Covina are, emphatically, church-goers, and each of the. six different churches are well attended. The Methodist and Haptist denominations are both building now edifices to accommodate their respective congregations, which had outgrown their present church buildings, No saloons exist in the city, and those who desire to raise families amid good social and moral environments lind here an ideal community. Covina boasts of a beautiful Carnegie library, built is 1M05, which is largely palronixed. An especial 3c UT co >n - . ,n s the children's reading room.
