which was found to be ablaze.
Arousing her husband and sum

under control.
Edward Osborn, - a belated

fore retiring and an explosion oc
curred, scattering flre over the
room. He seemed unable to help
himself, when the door. was burst

' When the "public fully realizes that
in ;all> Southern .California there Is no
source of. water-supply other than the
Owens' River valley. , : which is' adequate
tfrid : available for the .demands of Los
Angeles" now and In. the future, the jic 7
tiori of- the board, of : water commission
era in furthering .this "scheme and ufg
'ihts' the 1 co-operation' 1 of ' citla'ens'<of Los
Angeles will be the better understood.
. Facts which were ;kept secret by the
board'' in. the fear that divulgence wouli
cause a panic, are now freely discussed
by : ■ the A commissioners. About V. six
months "• ago - Llpplncott and \ Parker,
consulting engineers, were employed by
the. board :of water commissioners 10
investigate and " report as -to where
Los ' Angeles could secure a water sup
ply sufficient for the needs of a city- of
300,000 persons "' ■ '• .'•■
That report, which was read ' to the
commission ■ at ; an • executive sessslon,
was as follows: , , '" : '•, ;
.."In' Southern California there Is no
source from. which 1 the city can secure
so great, a quantity of water as- It
needs. | The only available source j ap
pears to be the Owens river valley."^
; It is small i.' wonder then that; the
mayor, .city attorney,, and water com
missioners ; immediately started on a
trek to the valley of the Owens. They
found 'what th«y'were looking for, but
time was precious. . Ex-Mayor.., Fred
Eaton, however, was equal to the occa
sion! and;secured options covering. the
entire valley for^ forty-six miles.
To Call' Election
The proposition will soon be submit
ted to the voters of .the city at a special
election, which' is to decide whether the
city will purchase, the ..water of the
Owens valley. The first bond issue will
be small, but it will be at this election
that the scheme will either be approved
by . the voters or turned down alto
gether. '•' -' ;.;. •' '• - ' ' ■ •
I Never In the; history of Los Angeles
has the action of. a. commission or legis
lative body stirred every home and
citizen as. has the move of the board
in inaugurating this" scheme. .
"What do you ' think of the plan for
bringing water to' the city from the
Owens river?" .'"•" 1 ; " '
; This 'is ' a question asked yesterday
throughout the city 'and the posslbill-;
ties' of the proposition were "eagerly
discussed. ' ' ''H^'t?
Owens lake, which marks the'termi
nation of the river, lies about 180 miles
north of Mojave ] and | above this the
valley stretches for many miles. De
splte the fact that it is watered abund
antly, the valley Is arid.
To the east. from the river the desert
stretches away beyond the horizon,
while to the west the glgantlo peak*
of the Sierra Nevadas lift .t heir snow
clad slopes into the clouds.', It Is from
the canyons that lead back and up Into
these ' mountains to the ' perpetual
snows, that' the hundreds of mountain
streams come gushing down Into the
Owens river. • * ...
As the valley lies in the shadow of
these, the loftiest mountains in the
