tion of coneolidatinK Alhambra, Poutli
Pasadena and Pasadena was ndvunrerl
several degrees yesterday afternoon at

trade of the three cities, when it was
brought out that the sentiment in Los

Walter Raymond, chairman of the
South Pasmlena committee, reported
that he had personally Interviewed a

motely the proposition of acquiring
more territory to the east of their pres
ent city limits.
The siprniflcance of this report was
men't in South Pasadena has hereto
fore been in favor of annexation to
Los Anpeles for advantages that would
accrue from Owens river water nnd a
sewer system. Now that those chances
seem far removed, it Is thought that
South Pasadena will look to Pasadena
to supply these necessities, as well as
municipal liphtinpr.
Jurltre W. M. Northrup, chairman of
the Alhambra committee, reported that
Alhambrans want to "be shown" the
advantflgre of consolidation. He re
quested a copy of the city charter of
Pasadena and other documents to show

Water from Little Bear Valley
Finds Way Into Silver
baffling rise of Silver lake, which
threatens to submerge the tracks of
the Tonopah & Tidewater railroad, it
\M said hero today, Is caused by the
draining- of the Little Bear valley res
ervoir Into the Mojave river. The
railroad company has installed mam
moth pumps and a drainage canal in
an effort to stop the steady rise of
the lake and prevent Its tracks from
going out.
In order to repair several big cracks
In the new concrete dam at Littlo
Hear valley it has been found neces
sary to empty the big reservoir, Into
which the natural lake at that point
has been converted. The discovery of

To drain the reservoir vast volumes
of water are being turned down the
mountain Into the Mojave river. It

river from the surface and after its

the Silver lake.
Hundreds of thousands of Inches of
wnter must be turned out of the reser
voir and the waters will ultimately
find their way into the Silver lake.
