of', the members of the " board of water
commissioners yesterday, and: accord
ingly" the t following; : resolution asking
the council Immediately to call a'spec
ial'bond election was' unanimously
adopted:
"Whereas, ■ the board of water com
missioners, recognizing; the wisdom and
necessity of taking steps to provide an
additional ; water supply for the city,
sufficient in volume to meet its future
requirements and so located as to
render its acquisition' practicable from
a flnanciai'and engineering standpoint;
has found, after thorough investigation
of all known available sources of sup
ply, .that the Owens river valley Is the
best ■■ place ; for obtaining ' the quantity
and quality of water needed by the
city, and has accordingly secured cer
tain options and contracts for -"'the
purchase of lands and ■ water rights
in that valley necessary to provide the
water required; and,
"Whereas,- in .' view, of _ ! the ■*■ large
amount of money that 'will* be required
to 'purchase theri real-property; needed
for. this purpose',' U will be necessary to
provide the fundsTtherefor by the" issu
ance of bonds; now, therefore,' beMt;\
"Resolved, ■ that the'' honorable,' city
council be requested to 'call a 'special
ejection to be held at.the'earllestprac
ticable date and to isubmit to the voters
of ] the "city the proposition " of author
ising a preliminary, Issue of 'bonds in
the amount'of $1,600,000 for the purpose
of acquiring ' lands, water 'rights and
other, property necessary,' to provide the
city with a source of water, supply in
the Owens river -valley,; and that the
matter of obtaining funds /with which
to lt construct ] the works j necessary /for
the' purpose of taking the water out. of
that valley, and bringing It to the city
of. Los. Apgeles be . lef t „ to ' be i, provided
for by "subsequent Issues of bonds.".
Commission Enthusiastic
The water commissioners are more
than enthusiastic over^the scheme ;to
bring the water of .'the j Owens 'river
into the, San' Fernando 'valley. Realiz
ing that In aH'of 'Southern "California
on this side 'of the mountains there is
no. place from which it Is possible 'to
obtain a water supply sufficient for the
needs of a city of ■' even 300,000 Inhab
itants, they fully appreciate, what the
acqulslton of the'' water rights", in' the
Owens valley 1 means to the cityV The
commissioners j feel that' at' last the
solution to the problem they have been
facing so long has been found.
For years Los Angeles has been
•wallowing every drop of water that
Superintendent ; of the Water . Depart
ment* Mulholland , could , find, and the
businessm en who the com
mission say, they are convinced that
the larger business Interests of the city
are already looking with concern at

«lon, iyesterday the proposition in all of
its' phases was discussed/ It cam?, to
light'^that In the . agreement between
Pred jEaton and the commission' the
former was to be allowed all of- the
land, in the valley above the 100-foot
level . for the" purpose of grazing^'his
cattle. The report of Engineers Lippin
cott^and Parker- makes this concession
look' . rather ..•, smajl, however, for it
places the entire bottom of the valley
below this level.- . ■ >•■ ~
I .Commissioner J. C. Elliott, In discuss
ing ; the purchase. of the few remaining
strips of land in the valley, said: }
'/•'l-, feel that we ought to give, those
fellows • a | fair, price for their claims.
We have bought the rest of the valley
on fair terms, and of coure if we must
condemn the few remaining strips it
will; be an easy job, and we can secure
the property through the courts on the
same bap'.s as that on which we have
bought the other holdings in. the valley.'
'. "I also think that the residents of
Independence should be allowed "some
thing for .their rights. . We will prac
tically depopulate the valley and this
will;- of course take away that village's
income." ."•■ > „ .: ' '... ■

land/'broke, in ,with: "Well, you will
not'i have? to \ buy out much, for there
are inot; many people; there. My auto
was .the first one to enter the valley
and.therflrst machine most of the set
tlers' had' ever seen, and they all turned
out'v" l|thlnk I gave a ride to everybody
in town."
, Two .Claimants Send Letter
;-,'A'-'iK. <<Koeblg addressed a commu
nication to' the board setting forth that
he, .with- T.'E. Gibbon' of the Salt Lake
road; owned certain rights in I the val
ley, v While they did not want to "hold
up", the city," they declare, still they in
tend to protect- their vested rights, and
they; announce ' that- they are ready for
a conference' with' the board. ;r; r
; Superintendent Mulholland explained
tna'fthese men' own certain rights on
the Owens, but that , these rights are
located' about fifty miles farther up the
valley 'than the holdings .of the city
extend. The superintendent stated that
tie understood Koeblg and Gibbon had
planned to put In a ' big dam to con
serve, the water for the generation of
electricity, but that the land . which
the reservolr'would have to "cover. is a
portion of Rickle's cattle range,' which
now belongs to the commission, bo that
it will be impossible for the two gentle
men to bother the city's supply without
first purchasing this land from the
city, ■ Thus the commission is safe. The
communication was filed.' • .

OMAHA, Neb., July 31.— A newspaper
trust to defeat W. ; J. Bryan ;'ln any
political aspirations he may cherish Is
being formed In Nebraska, with E. E.
Brown of the Hastings Observer as the
active promoter. The scheme Is part
of a wholesale campaign . of education
in ' behalf of safe and sane politics,
with no special reference " to , the* In
terests of any political party.
The plan, as outlined, contemplates
the establishment of twenty-one papers
in , leading towns of Nebraska to jen
courage the anti-Bryan sentiment now
existing. The move Is prompted by the
fear that another wave of Bryan popu
larity may result from the recent dis
closures of graft In financial and po

' Brown and his newspaper trust; are
said to have the financial backing of
James E. Eekles. ex-comptroller of,cur

Kqultable Life; Thomas F, Ryan, the
Wall' street king, , and, Edward A.
Cudahy, the Omaha packer. It is pro
posed to make Omaha the headquarters
of a chain of papers and to this end
an option has been secured on, the
Omaha Commercial, a weekly business
paper, which, it is said, will bo" turned

backward |at the. 1 same time "but was
saved from falling by his safety-belt,

that Heprlck. had been, instantly killed

; As soon as Frost began to show sign?
of life he was removed 'to the general
emergency-hospital, where he may dls
jit 'any moment. .worked
with 'him for hours in; hope that they
might save his life, but it is feared that
their efforts were In • vain. >
i Heprick and Frost. were employed by
the; Home ; Telephone company/ and at
the time of the accident were stringing
a new l toll wire between Santa Monica

came. It Is said by the other linemen
that the two got the wire too near th-.
high voltage wire.
Hurled From Pole
As the wires came In contact there
was a blinding flash, a crackling sound
and alow cry from one of the men.
Heprick was hurled from the pole ai'.d

killed him opinions differ. His, head
