TINCHER AS THE SPOKESMAN FOR THE FARM BLOC There's No Haste in Pressing Farm Legislation this Session. GET FACTS FIRST RAILROADS PASSED ON THE SAVING Two-Thirds of the Amount Went to Public in Reduced Freight Rates. ' Independence, Inyo County, Calif., Nov. 19.—Friction between two types of resistance today threatened, according to Inyo county authorities, to snap tbo tension of u situation croated south of hero last Sunday In tho seizure of the Los Angeloa aqueduct by Owens Valley ranchers and to plungo this port of California into civil war. Since the approximately 100 ranrhors took over the Alabama gates of the aqueduct and diverted Los Angeles' chief source of water supply into Owens Lake, thoy have remained at tho spillway quietly unarmed ,and waiting for armed force to be sent against them. But the city lias refused to attempt forcible ejectment of the raiders and has contented itself with peaceful court action to recover its property. No Stats Interference The governor Monday denied the request of Sheriff Collins for statn troops and a In en then has sot changed his policy of non-intervention. Accordingly the ranchers are faced with the alternatives of either abandoning their attempt to force the city into a settlement of their long standing wator rights feud with It, or else continuing "on tho Job" at the spillway indefinitely—for engineers estimate that Los Angeles still has about throe months supply of water on tap in its reservoirs. A Tense Situation. Now. according to their spokesmen the" ranchers are not In any mood to give up their fight nor are thoy In any mood to remain on the uquoduct for three months. They demand immediate settlement of their dispute with the city and each day that this settlement Is delayed increases the tenuity of the fltuntlon and the likelihood of a more serious flare-up of tbo feud. "I am thoroughly cuuvincod," MM District Attorney Ilessia yesterday, "that utiles* troops intervene, in the controversy between Inyo o.ounty and the residents of the city of Los Angeles thero will IK 1 loss of life and destruction ot property." Fears for Aqueduct, Sheriff Collins said: "I am powerless. If I attempt to oust the ranchers it will mean possible loss Of life and the dynamiting ot miles of the aqueduct. The ranchers are not armed now but I know that enough arms are available In the valley to supply 175 men and women with weapons Inside, ot one hour. At leust a scoro of women are holding themselves In readiness to bear arms and thoy are .not novices. They can shoot straight." Today S. H. Robinson, special counsel for Los Angeles lit expected—to arrive here to seek warrants for tho arrest of those who Mon day defied a superior court order commanding them to cease inter ferlng with the city's wuter supply and leavo the aqueduct. Citizens predict that any attempt to make arrests under audi warrants will only bo the signal for "real trouble." Water Going to Waste. The spillway through which the raidors diverted tho aqueduct's flow Into Owens Lake and away from the city was still wide open today with water going to waste ot tho estimated rate or 15,000 cubic feet a day and extensive preparations wero bolne made to keep it opori. Additional tents were being eret.-ted to shelter tho approximately 100 men on guard against any possible attempt by the city to recover control of Its water supply. Groceries, much, cggH and vegetables from the towns and farms of the valley were arriving hourly for the sustenance of the "army of occupation," and two more searchlights last night Were added to the battery already employed In (Humiliating all approaches to the rant­ ers' camp. During tho night tho defense lines about the camp were tightened, no one being allowed to pass the sentriq.s without a satisfactory account of his business. Appeal to Government. Sheriff Charles Collins, of Inyo county announced that ho had sent a telogram to Attorney Cleueral U. S. Webb at Sun Francisco, urging him to attend the conference between the governor and Hussion. Collins said that he Mready had asked tho governor three times to order in the state troops. Agricultural Commission to Make Survey Before Mak- ng Recommendations.

Washington, Nov. 19.—Early action nt the coming short session of congress on farm relief legislation appeared Improbable today in vlow of tho announcement by farm bloc leaders that agricultural depression has been somewhat relieved, and tho decision ot the agricultural commission named 'by President Coolldgo to Investigate and recommend steps for stabilization of the Industry, to recess after today's session ' for three or four weeks. Tincher ss Spokesman. Representative Tincher, Republican, Kansas, spokosman for the house farm bloc, announced after a conference with Senator Curtis, Republican of the same state, that no effort will bo made to press tarm legislation at the impending session before the president's commission reports. In the opinion of farm bloc members, he explained agriculture, especially In a large section of the west, has been given sufficient stimulus to tide the farmer over for the time being. Recognizing the immensity of their task, mentbers^of the administration agricultural committee havo decided that any effort to formulate a program, causing lasting prosperity for the farmers, would be time wasted until official statistics on all phases of the question could be prepared to guide them. Oct tho Facts First. Every agency of tho government charged with administration or farm regulations, the gatherlug of production and marketing statistics, financing and transportation, has been asked to compile the desired information for the commission and It will reassemble as soon as the data Is ready. , While the work of the commission is expected by Chairman Curr of Wyoming, to carry out Its activities, past March 4, when the pros- ont congress expires, emergency problems are to be disposed of as quickly as possible to permit legislation action, in accordance with the wishes of President Coolidge, without undue delay. With this purpose in inlnd, the cattlo industry, described by tho commissioners as being in "a depressed condition" is to be given first consideration. Girls, How About a Razor for Christmas?
