Klberger. representing the owners of throe hotels in Lakowood, New Jersey, and Saratoga Springs, Now York, svas in Coviua twice this week in the interests of his hold syndicate, and although he made no definite stai enienl regarding the pin pose of his vi.?iis. it is known that llie management is seriously contemplating the- erection of several largo tourist holds in I hi; San Gabriel valley. .Mr. F.lbfr- ger has visited several towns In lite orange boll. 'Without stating his impressions of other localities he has visited, the hold man told a representative of the Argus that, he was more (ban favorably impressed with (be possibilities of Covina for the establishment of a modern hotel of moil- erale rates. That this visit was not n, casual one is borne out in tho fact that Mr. Elberger made a careful estimate of conditions In transportation and other matters before visiting the town. The property in Covina with which tlie hotel representative was most favorably impressed was the lot at the corner of Second street and Badillo, a parcel of property ISO feet by 120 feet, the latter dimension facing the Pacific Electric car line, and commanding the broadest view of the Sierra Maclre mountains of any location in the valley. The scenic effects were taken into consideration largely in the approval of this property, fdv ^^ b,otpl-sjt^j^jjj^jj though rewfe'ftts Jn Cdvina'liave grown the attractive station erected by the Pacific Electric railroad, and is situated in the most desirable locality of the town. The fact that eastern investment has been attracted toward Covina as regards the building of a pretentious hotel, has been known in an indefinite manner for some time, but the persons making negoliatious wen? not Identified until this week. Other inquiries for tho purpose of hotel building have been received in Covina. within (he past year, and it ran be sia'cd with good authority (hat i his busine'.v,-; will soon become a fad.

San Antonio, or "Old Baldy" one of splendor as seen in. the winter months, blanketed heavily with snow, showing within the ga.--h made by the Dallon canyon. A morning room on the second floor with front; built entirely of glass would be a desirable feature of a hotel in this location, the eastern man thought, as Ibis would give an unobstructed view of the ^reat range on I he north. This property under consideration is at present owned by Dr. J. I"). Rood, and is covered with fine orange j roes in full bearing. In making preliminary investigations of Covina as a tourist town, Mr. Elberger staled ho found that the town enjoyed one of the fastest electric car services in Southern. California.
