The city trustees met in regular icssion Tuesday, Joseph Moxley being he only absentee. It was an important session to the property owners of the city, as the first definite steps were taken by the rustees in the matter of municipal street Improvement. For some v/eeks the trustes have been visiting various towns in Southern California investigating the mcr- ts and efficiency of the Petrolithic method of road building, with the result that they have practically decided to adopt this character of road building for Covina. Center will be the flrst street to be improved and the following committee of property owners on this thoroughfare was appointed to cooperate with the street committee: C. E. Crawford, J. N. Wilson, H. M. Friedman, Harry Lewis, A. H. Craw ford, Jacob Maurer, C. E. Blackmail, Dr. J. C. Goodell, D. Bradshaw. The adjourned meeting of the city LOCAL NIMRODS BUSY.

This year Ed Middaugh is the flrst one to return with the spoils. In company with a party of seven, he shot the only buck out of four deer sighted. The party included Lloyd Garrison, Chase Fairly, Ira Bell, Ed Middaugh, Mark Middaugh, Ed Matney, and Charley Coffman. The party hunted In the Dalton canyon, some of them returning the same night. Garrison and Fairly went provisioned for a week and will try farther up. A number of the local sportsmen have been out since the fifteenth gunning in the fields and and hills for doves.

Covlna Will Have Likely Bunch In Newly-Organized Summer League. Game Tomorrow. Covlna diamond enthusiasts' are iu line for some good baseball games this summer. A team has been organized by George Covert and Garry Layman to play in the newly-organized summer league of Southern California. This league Is to be conducted strictly In accordance with the A.A.U. rules, and a great many of the players on the various teams are college men. With the passing of the White Squadron, a new team is a very welcome addition to the town, and as the management proposes to use local men as much as possible, the now organization should be very popular. Eight teams are In the league, and all but two games will be played in Co- vlna. At the end of the season a suitable trophy will be awarded the club finishing at the top of the percentage column. Miller of the Woodlll-Hulse team has been secured to pitch for the new team. This speedy youngster has appeared frequently on the local diamond and has made a hit with the fans. He Is the only twlrler to score a shutout In Covlna, or to win two games In succession. Shutt and Graf of Pomona college will also appear in Covlna uniforms. Shutt proved a star at backstop for the winners of the Southern California championship, while Graf, his team mate, playing second base, had the highest batting average in' the league. Bush Thomp son, the ex-Angel right fielder, will wear the padded glove. The big fellow hardly got his stride In fast company this season, but against medium talent his slugging ability will be a world of strength. Middaugh at first base, and Shirley at short, will com pie to an Infield that will bo the best, possible In the town. In the few games that "Spider" Middaugh has played his hitting has been a big feature, and with his elongated construction, It takes a high ball to get past him. The outfield will bo a well-balanced unit. Montague and Aguayo will occupy the same positions they did In the former Covlna team, while Morwln will bo stationed In the right garden. The latter has shown up well In several preliminary games, making good with the stick. Tomorrow, the Initial appearance ' the Covlna team will be made on the local diamond against the Schlltz team of Los Angeles. The l.ittet organization IH made up of college and high school stni'H, and IH doped by a great many as ii strong factor In the pennant race. The local men wilt appear for the llrnt, time In their IM- Hulls, that have, been partly s'ibnerlb- ed for by the San Felice cigar company.
