Fonricr Secretary of the Interior
E. Al Hitchcock owes it to : the
go vemment's reclamation service
.and to the \u25a0thousands of settlers
affected by the irrigation projects
to come to Sacramento and take
the witness stand to clear up the
ugly accusations that are being
made by the "kicking** farmers
against the federal officials, par
ticularly against J. B. Lippincott
The men who are crying for water
for their crops have issued about
two tons of "literature" in setting
forth their grievances, the friends
bf : 3LlppJhcott and Newell are; ranting
:^with. 'Indignation and abuse, and. out

\u25a0 the : c -bitter, controversy. Ex-Secretary
H«chcock. because of. his familiarity
