Bracken reported that the ice plant had no objection to having their water cut off while passenger trains were filled, but cutting off the town would cause serious trouble and should not be done.

T e l e g r a m . SALT LAKE ROUTE. Las Vegas,Nev,Jul,30th,1919. W.H.Comstock, Los Angeles,Cal. Your wire date. Consulted Ice plant and they have no objections to having valve closed when watering trains but it would mean serious trouble for the city main and should not be done. Believe the trouble is in the coach line as we now have good pressure in the city since we raised the head at both springs as instructed by Miller. John Clark and I will make examination of coach line in the morning and report later. Walter R.Bracken, Agent.
