EXT OF THE LONDON TIMES AND
"WEI HAI WEL June 3. I have just re
turned from an extended trip on board
the steamer Haimun to Kinchou Bay,
where I was able to glean many addi
tional facts relative to the recent engage
ment near that place. I was fortunate
enough to meet an eye-witness to the
entire battle, and he cleared up a num
ber of doubtful points regarding the move
ments preliminary to the ordering o the
general assault. At mid-day o May 26,
the KinchOu Peninsula presented "a scene
of unprecedented activity, and a military
spectacle seldom equaled, -40,000 Japanese
troops being massed behind the western
spur of Mount Sampson and under such
email cover as was afforded by the Suchia
tun Twin peaks. The Japanese forces
-were actually within 2000 yards of the
Kusstan works, and there was so little
room to deploy on the isthmus that en
tire batalllons of tho Japanese troops had
to stand waiting waist deep in the sea
until enough of their comrades had fallen
before Russian "bullets to secure for them
a foothold on land.
Waiting Time Most Trying.
The waiting time was most trying, the
shells from the Russian batteries massed
upon me neiguts. piougning ww. m j
batteries were brought Into action from
Chlllcnwang and the Ka.uchlayan flats,
while the guns of the fleet kept the lino
of Russian works fringed with bursting
projectiles, which eventually saved the
main body of the Japanese Infantry.
It was mid-day when the Russian fire
from the peaks of Mauchiaying village
seemed to slacken, and almost immedi
ately afterward the Japanese batteries
mado their appearance between the
Suchlantun range. They were to make a
desperate effort to carry the nearest Rus
sian works. In tho open, absolutely with
out cover, they poured an accurate fire
into the Russian position, and a half hour
later tho order for a charge upon
Mauchiaying was given the waiting infan
try massed upon the isthmus.
Like hounds released from, the leash,
the little brown men started across the
intervening space while tho guns of the
Russians poured down hundreds of ex
plosive shells, but without In any way
checking the onslaught.
Mowed Down Like Grass.
Reaching the first lino of hills, which
afforded slight cover, the Japanese infan
try halted long enough to fill up the gaps
In their shattered lines, and then swopt
up the slope toward the Russian guns.
Human power, however, could not have
carried the Russian position at this time,
and tho Japanese infantry was hurled
back, shattered and defeated. Bullets
from the Russian infantry In the trenches
and from the machine guns at the top of
the slope mowed down the Japanese like
grass. A few who seemed to bear charmed
lives managed to stagger half way up the
hill to what seemed to be a depression
that would afford cover from the rain of
bullets. But it was a vain hope, as it was
here that the Russians had strung their
barbed wire obstruction, which it was 1m
possible to pass.
The Japanese column melted like solder
before a plumber's blowpipe and within 15
minutes tho entire body of men engaged
in the charge had ceased to xlst, except
as a trail of mutilated bodies at the foot
of the Russian entrenchments. Seeing the
failure of this movement, the' Japanese
gunboats and supporting artillery concon
trated tholr whole fire on the one point
where General Oku had determined to

pected to open the entire structure of the

who had such troops as the Japanese,
and who was willing to .take the respon
slblllty of such fearful losses as must
necessarily follow. The second charge was
successful, as tho Japanese were able to
get within bayonet length of the enemy
and the latter fled, leaving their cannon
to the foe.
I learn that it was the mining ship

PRINEVILLE, Or. June 2. (Staff Cor
respondence.) A glance at the altitude of
tho different portions of Crook County,
between Benham Falls and Prinevllle,
shows why it is practicable to take water
out of the Deschutes River and reclaim
250,000 to 400,000 acres of land. Tho sur
face of tills whole region slopes toward
the north. "Wnile there are, of course.
some small tracts that have a different
slope, the general character of the sur
face is such that canals can be construct
ed to carry water over the arid plains
and distribute it so that all the land ex
cept a few buttes can be irrigated.
Benham Falls is ten miles south of
Bend, in the Deschutes River. Tho water
at the Falls does not take a precipitous
drop, hut flows in a torrent down a steep
and rockjr canyon. The altitude at tho
point where a dam can be built to divert
the water is 4100 feet above the sea level.
This is 400 feet 'Or more higher than tho
point above the town of Bend, where
water is now being taken to irrigate 25,000
acres of land on the cast side of the Des
chutes and Crooked Rivers.
Nearly a Mile High.

The distance from Benham Falls down

Power Company is to take the -water from '
tho Deschutes River at Benham Falls and
cary it in an easterly direction to a point
nearly south of Prinevllle. Tha canal
will then circle around toward the north.
bringing the water to the tablelands south
and west of this city, and even to the
city Itself if occasion requires.
In this manner a canal will be construct
ed, following around the edge of the foot
hills at such a height that laterals can
distribute the water from the main ca
nal to all the region, enclosed by the ca
nal arid Crooked River. The waste water,
if any, will be turned into Crooked River,
where it will return to the Deschutes, as
may be seen by reference to tho map
published in Wednesday's Oregonlan.
In Its- general character the land be
tween Bend and Prineville Is a great'
plain, with very slight undulations. The
soil is commonly called a lava ash, and
Is very productive when watered. The
whole tract, in Its natural state, la
covered with sagebrush, with scattering
Juniper trees on most of it. Of this whole
tract, containing 250,000 acres of vacant
land, 140,000 acres can be irrigated with
water taken from tho Deschutes River,
three miles above Bend.
Further Contract Desired.
In addition to this 140,000 acres, for tho
reclamation of which a contract- has. al
ready been let, the Deschutes Irrigation
& Power Company has applied to the
State Land Board for a contract to -irri
gate 80,000 acres lying south and east of
the original tract. This 80,000 acres, and
probably a considerable portion of the
140,000-acro tract, will bo watered from
the Benham Falls Canal. North of
Crooked River are tho Haystack and
Agency Plains districts, which, .together
with other lands in private ownership.
will make another 150.000 acres of arid
land that can bo reached by the Deschutes
This will make a total of 400,000 acres
that will come under tho Deschutes sys
tem. Much of this will not ho reached
for many years to come. Because of its
proximity to Priuevllle.'-tho Benham Falls
Canal project is of particular interest to
the residents of this city,
Prineville Will Get Benefit.
The members of the State Land Board
visited Prinevilio yesterday on their re
turn from a tour of all the land which is
to be reclaimed. In the. evening they were
tendered a reception by the people of th
city, wbn they explained in brief addresses
the benefits that will follow the successful
completion of the irrigation system.

it concerns the ocean area actually seen

ate effort on the part of Republican lead
ers to break the deadlock in the State
Convention failed today, and at 8 o'clock
tonight the assemblage took a recess un
til 10 A. M. tomorrow without having
nominated a candidate for Governor.
The attempt to bring the break about
was a spectacular one. Ex-Congressman
Walter Reeves, chairman of the commit
tee on resolutions, and Chairman Cannon
engineered the plan, which was made pos
sible by the report of .the committee on
resolutions, which presented tho resolution
it originated, and which was referred to
the committee at yesterday's session. This
resolution was to the effect that the dele
gates be released from instructions, and
when it was presented, Mr. Reeve3
called upon the candidates one by one to
come before the convention and express
their opinion regarding it.
Each declared in favor of the resolution,
speaking in the order named: Frank O.

change from the ballots of the previous

delegates voted for Judge Sherman, whoso
speech before the convention had made a
good impression, and he received 80 votes.
When the convention reconvened for the

from Yates to Lowden came, and he got
