MUSIC AND SPORTS. Covina Celebrates on July Third With Big Crowds.—Cantons Make Brave Showing. No serious accidents lo record against Covina's big Independence Day celebration, despite the fact that the noise of cannon crackers, sky-rockets and a fusilade' of every kind of noise- producing article ushered in the third of July, the fourth of July and the fifth of July. Covina's celebration was held on Saturday, the third, this year, an all-day program of sports and entertainment. It was the biggest Fourth the town ever experienced. Starting at 9 o'clock the sports, under the management of Howard Douglas, were run off rapidly. The running races for boys were full of their quota of. excitement. The 100-yard dash, open, was won by. Wallace Reed, who defeated his antagonist, Jackson, the colored boy of Azusa, very handily. Azusa, however, carried off the big relay race with five trophy cups. Jackson was supported well by his fellows and the Azusa team made a very fine showing. Reed was not able to make up for the slowness of his team, al- thou".a he gained cteadily on the leaders In the Azusa team. The high jump was won by Howard Douglas, with Sam Allison as nearest competitor. The shot-putting became a general game with many striving for honors with equal success. Long Beach took the game of baseball from the local team bjj a score of 6 to 5. In the Womans Club House at 11 o'clock the citizens listened to an exceptionally fine address by Rev. Will A. Knighten of Los Angeles, who took as his subject the tremendous progress of the American nation since the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Rev. M. Knighten was frequently Interrupted by appreciative applause. A feature of the program was the Grand Army drum corps from Los Angeles. These old soldiers gave some stirring music. Philo L. Case, a hoary old veteran, who Is known as the Drummer Boy of Shiloh', gave an Interpretation of the long roll or call to arms, which he played at that famous battle, when Beau regard's troops were stealing in upon the Union troops. His playing called forth the most patriotic enthusiasm of the day. Veteran "Bob" B,ain exhibited his ancient drum, which his grandfather captured from the Hessians In the Revolutionary War, and which his grandfather carried In the Mexican War, his father In t.he Stale mill- tia of New Yoik, and h!s brother and SUMMARY 100-yard dash OF SPORTS.

Holt's Oldsmobile Shies Violently and Makes Attempt to Get Into Reservoir. Shirley Holt, erstwhile editor of the Whlttler News and the Ontario Record, afterwards reformed, to become deputy county assessor, thence to the land office of the Pacific Electric Company, alighted from his trusty Oldsmobile on his hands and knees Thursday morning, and his machine sky-larked over to the edge of the Covina Irrigating Company reuervoll' on San Bernardino road, where it peered over the edge and decided not to jump In. Holt's newspaper training stood him in good stead, and his language was printable while he plucked the gravel from his palms and brushed his trousers. Like all newspaper men Holt saw the value of the mishap as an article of news at once, so he kept still about It. Holt has a ranch In Charter Oak, where the roads remind one of the trail to Old Baldy, or the sad and billowy waves of the ocean. Every morning, after the Charter Oak roosters have announced that It Is time to sprint for the first Pacific Electric, he puts spurs to his Oldsmobile and cornea down the San Berdoo road, touching the tops of the canyons made by the orange teams on their way to the packing house, and whon he arrives In Covina, he puts his machine up (generally for repairs) at Davis' bicycle shop, and grabs the hind end of the car for LOH Angeles. Thursday morning he stopped nt the reservoir. The manner of his de- The Oldsmobile himself all through the Cival Wai-. A ' lay was l" i(;ulliir male quartette sang several patriotic !

Brown of l.os Angeles, who acted as judge, reserved his decision until a later date. The eve of July 4th, !!)0!), will always be remembered in Covina as the date of the big "Roman candle fight" In the main street of the town. The boys broke loose about 8 o'clock and ' kept up a continuous bombardment; of each other In the streets, using the lloraan candles as men would use guns. The street was a perfect (tame of fire and shooting balls for hours.

Holt was left behind in the road, on his hands and knees, like another Sherlock Holmes looking for footprints. T'je machine struck an Iron post and careened far out over the water, but hung there, while the cushion and Holt's gloves, sailed out Into the wetness* beyond. Holt succeeded In hacking up Ills' machine and made another charge on Covina and tire Pacific Electric car. When he arrived at Davis' shop he asked the proprietor to go fishing for his gloves and cushion. Davis spent, an hour making a suitable grabbing j hook, and carried on a mysterious ! prohbing and dulling for another hour i at the reservoir.

Covina Valley Gas Company Making Extensive Improvements of Plant and Mains. Work began this week on the ox tension of the mains for the Covina Valley (Jus Company. Twenty mllen of pipes will be laid whon the ex. tensions are finished, and it Is ex pectod that 650 consumers will be con nocted with the lines by tho first of September. The work of extension Is being done through a contract with the Gas Operating Company, which company him sub-let tho trench dig- King to the U. R. Davidson Constructing Company of Monrovia. The lines extend from the company's plant opposite the Covina Highlands CitniH Association packing house on the Southern Pacific line, along the west boundry of T. V. Grlswold's orange ranch, thence to Cypress on to Citrus avenue, where It follows this avenue to Alosta street, going up this thoroughfare to Glendora. Just above Alosta on Citrus avenue It again branches to Fifth street and proceeds to Azusa. Manager White states that a large percentage of tho residents In Azusa and Glendora have signed contracts to connect with the mains. The Covina Valley Gas Company has been completely reorganized. None of the former officers or stockholders have any interest in the concern. The company assumed full control of the plant and all matters rtaining to tfe^o bUBtnosn on the. flr»t of May. Manager W. A. White, of Monrovia, who has been connected with the gas business of the Edison four years, was placed In charge of the business, and the stock Is almost wholly held by Monrovia and Los Angeles capitalists. The buslnoBH will be run practically as a close corporation, with little promotion. Some stock IB held in niendora and A/usa but almost none in Covina, and It Is given out by the officers of the company that very little, If any, Is for sale at the present time. Tho manager is pushing rapidly the matter of ettlng HUbacrlberu to the system. The officers of tho company are: President, W. K. Farman, Monrovia; vice- president, C. A. Weaver, Glondora; secretary-manager, W. A. White of Monrovia, now of Covina; trea.Hurer, W. M. firlHwold, representing the l^lrst. National Hank of Covina; eon- wilting engineer, if. W. Hurhart, hlef engineer of the Kdlson Klectrlc 'oinpany of the Pacl/lc coaHl. Tln> company Is making an immediate expenditure of $:!0,00u In Improvements and extensions, A new boiler and engine are now being In- Hlalled at the plant, while, the old boiler Is also being sel. up as an auxiliary. A purlller Is being constructed at a big expense In order that the gas will reach the standard of purity manufactured In the large cities, and when all Improvements) are In operation It Is claimed that, t.he Covina gad will be as High In heat, units as jiny made on the coast. The new purifier is one of the very latest, t.hlngs in gas machinery. Many other Improvements of the plant of a technical nature, which are only understood by gas manufacturers, are being made. A tiew tank which Is to hold the surplus gas for the lines In A/usa and (liendora lias been Installed. The (omjctny has one of the be;U gas makers in the state employed for the manufacture tit the product. The property upon which the plant Is es tabllshed comprise* one IHT.: and car- rieh a water right with it, which make* it especially valuable for Ibis work.
