St. Petersburg, Jao. 6 .— The remark-
able allegation that the British fleet
was held in readiness to destroy the
Russian fleet, if the battle of the Sea o
Japan had gone in the Russians favor,
is made by Admiral Rojestvensky in a
letter published in the Novoe Vremys
today with the permission of th* min­
ister of marine.
Referring to the absolute secrecy of
Admiral Togo in regard to the disposi­
tion of his forces, Rojestvensky de­
clares that “ this was unknown even to
the admiral of the British fleet allied
with the Japanese, who concentrated
his forces at Wei Hai Wei, in expecta­
tion of receiving an order to annihilate
the Russian fleet, if this, tbe final ob­
ject of Great Britain, was beyond the
power of the Japanese.”
From Admiral Rojestvensky’« ac­
count of his tactics in the battle of the
Sea of Japan, the reader is almost
convinced that the Russian commander
outmaneuvered Admiral Togo at every
point, and was himself tha real victor.
He delares he knew Admiral Togo’s
exact whereabouts two days before the
battle, made his disposition according­
ly and entered the fight with his eyes

Salem— Prominent irrigators of Ore­
gon are considering the advisability of
asking the next legislaure to amend the
irrigation laws in several particulars.
At the present time all the contracts
with the state for the reclamation of
desert lands under the Carey act are
based upon the theory that the owners
of the canals and ditches are entitled to
collect a perpetual annual rental from
the landholders. In Idaho the land­
holders will eventually own and control
the canals, ditches, headgates, etc.
In the contract with the state of
Idaho for the construction of the Twin
Falls canal it is provided that a com­
pany shall be formed among the land-
owners on the basis of one share of
stock for one share of water right, and
that within seven years the control of
the canals, ditches, dams and headgates
shall pass to the corporation formed
among the water users.
Previous to
the formation of this company and be­
fore the expiration of the seven years’
limit, the construction company is en­
titled to collect annually not exceeding
80 cents an acre. The eame theory of
ownership prevails in all government
