Owens Valley Herald, volume 17, no. 15, with a headline article "City's Proposals Turned Down Hard by Big Pine" reporting that the Big Pine Property Owners Association rejected the settlement proposition made by the City of Los Angeles. Another article "Shows Confidence in Proposition" reports that Owens Valley property owners support the proposition presented by W. W. Watterson to the Los Angeles Clearing House Association.
To meet the need for water of its growing population, the City of Los Angeles began acquiring water rights in the Owens Valley in 1905. The Los Angeles Aqueduct was completed in 1913 to bring Owens Valley water to the city. During the 1920s, the City of Los Angeles began additional large-scale purchases of land in the Owens Valley to increase its supply of water from the valley, resulting in the city's almost complete control of the valley's agricultural land.
