It is noticeable that Russian official

A question greatly discussed in the

General Kuropatkin has succeeded in
ascertaining ' ;hat the Japanese are
threatening his rear so near the Muk
den line, and has been enabled to be
gin a retreat, or whether he has
elected to fight. In any case, it is
considered that any dav may bring
news of a great battle in this district,
as the transport difficulties are be
lieved to be so great as to make it al
most impossible for Genera) Kuropat
kin to effect a rapid retirement.
Indefinite reports continue to reach

MUST HOLD PORT ARTHUR.
Russia WIU Mobilize All Forces Possible
1 here for Its Defense.
St. Petersburg, May 19. Advices re
ceived by the general staff show that
the Japaneee'are practically masters of
all the southern end of the Liao Tung
peninsula, ssve Port Arthur and the
territory commanded by guns. This
result, so promptly brought about, is
due to' the failure of tjie Russians to
make opposition of any consequence
to the Japanese advance,
-A-member of the general staff said
to the Associated Press that the re
moval of the guns from the fortifica
tions erected at Kinchau, and the des
truction of Port Dalny, were primarily
for the purpose of concentrating the
entire Russian force at ' Port Arthur.
If the men and guns were scattered,
the effect would have been to distrib
ute the means of defense of the fort
ress over a number of points strate
gically weak. To defend the whole of
the southern end of the Liao Tung pen
insula it would hsve been necessary
to have an army equal to that whieh
the Japanese could have landed.
The weakness of the Manchurian
army, said this officer, left only one
courte to pursue, namely, that o' mo
bilising sufficient troops at Port Arthur
to hold it until relief came. . -

The Japanese are expected here to

War te Involve Others.
St.-Louis, May 19. General Nelson
A Miles, who is here attending the
Good Roads convention expresses the
belief that the Russo-Japanese war
will eventually involve other nations.
I belie e that the war will be a long
and desperate one," (aid General
Miles. "In the next great war, I be
lieve the automobile will, to a large
extent, supplement the horse. There

United States and the number is In
creasing rapidly. Automobiles can
be used on bad roads ss well aa horses.

events are imminent. The outposts of
the two armies are already in contact
in the"aone northwest of Feng Wang

Night and Day,
The Dalles The scouting mill In
this city is now running a double new

and at Columbia river points, such as
The Dallesi Arlington and Echo, where
the sealed bid plan that was insngurat
ed in the state three years ago does not

ly all from the warm Columbia river
ranges, which wools are more or less
earthy and are sought only by deslers
in the scoured product.
There seems to be no disposition on

The choice Eastern Oregon wools
sought for shipping in the grease,
which are grown back in the interior,
are now being sown. This class that in
former years was marketed at The
Dalles, and gave this city the distinc
tion of receiving and shipping more
wool direct from the grower than any
other place in the United States, bas,
since the completion of the Columbia
Southern railway been transferred to
Shaniko. There the wools are all
offered under the sealed bid system.
The first sale there is set for June 2,
the second for June 14, and the third
and last for July 1.;
Pendleton leads off with the first
sealed bid sale of the season on the 23d
instant, and Heppnor folio s on the

points in the state where wools will be
offered upon sealed bids ate Baker City

Indians Work With Japanese.
La Grande Nearly 100 Japanese are
in La Grande from Poitland and points
in Washington to work in the Grand
Ronde sugar beet fields this summer,
and more are expected to arrive a little
later on. The work will be to keep the
beets thinned out and free from weeds.
F. S. Bramwell, field superintendent of ers have just come into Umatilla coun
the sugar factory, stated that the sugar ty to see if they can pick up large con-
company alone has Just completed seed-

Wheat Caught by Frost.

MAY SAVB WATER.
Government Expects to Investigate Ir
rigation la Umatilla.
Washington A consultation of irri
gation experts bas been ordered at Pen
dleton to determine the merits of the
Umatilla irrigation project. The re-
elamatlon of between 100,000 and 200,-
000 acres of land, lying directly west of
Pendleton, t an elevation ranging from
300 to 900 feet above the sea is consid
ered feasible. Examination has shown
most of this laud to be unpatented, and
that the Northern Pacific controls the
greater portion of the patented area.
It has been found impracticable to di
vert water from the Snake river, near
Riparia, and bring it onto this land,
and the experts will determine the
feasibility of storing the flood waters of
the Umatilla river in a system of res
ervoirs. If it is found such a systom is
practicable and that dams can be con
structed on the respective v reservoir
sites, and litigation can be avoided,
such as is threatened in Malheur coun
ty, the government will turn its atten
tion to Umatilla, and leave the Mal
heur project to be disposed of later.
The government is now satisfied that
one reservoir In towuship 3 north,
range 25 and 26 east, can be built to
hold sufficient water to reclaim 60,000
acres, but before this project is adopted,
it is desired to know how much addi
tional land can be reclaimed by waters
storwi in smaller reservoirs in that vi
cinity which can also be supplied by
flood waters fiom Umatilla river. If
the board reports favorably on its ex
amination, a special effort will be
msde to perfect the plans for this irri
Better Wool, Worse Mutton.
Pendleton The fact that $2.75 and
more was realised for dry ewes and two
year olds, two and three years ago,
while buyers are not offering more than
12 for the same class of stock now, is
not altogether due to conditions in the
mutton market, though prices have
fallen considerably. The tendency of
Umatilla'county sheepmen to breed for
wool since good prices prevailed is low
ering the mutton qualities. Sheep
bied for selling purposes usually have
coarser, lower grade wool than those
raised for their fleeces.
Dickering oa Sheep Prices,
Pendleton Seven eastern sheep buy
signments to take to the middle west,
'and while they are stlil quite a distance
; apart from growers on prices their pres-
ence makes tna prospect more encour
aging in the congested sheep districts,
where it was feared sheepmeq would
have to carry over all their last year
holdings, together with the spring in
crease. Can Start Oft With 100 Cows.
Echo It is estimated that 100 cows
will be available to start should the
Haznlwood Creamery company carrv
out its intention to install a branch
here. Several farmers in addition to
tr,0ee already posssesing dairy animals
are iCanninir their herds for dairy pos-
sibilities, and with a district a dozen
miles long up snd down the Umatilla
river to draw from, it is thought 200
cows could be secured by midsummer.

It is known and appreciated here
that all the powers have made strong
representations to Pekin in the Interest
of the presorvatiorfof the tranquillity of
the empire, but It is stated that Major
General Pflug's dispatch of May 14
shows the necessity for further impress
ing the Celestial government with the
advisability of acting with a firm band.
The authorities here do not forget that
the Boxer revolt which spread from
Shantung would have involved tha en
tire empire had it not been foi the firm
ness of the southern viceroys.
The military authorities in St.
Petersburg claim to have information
of sensational charactor to the effect
that the Chinese have tacitly agreed to
co-operate with the Japanese operations
against the Russians.
The Japanese propose, it is stated, to
drive General Kuropatkin's forces into
Mongolia, which would place the Rus
sians in the position of Invaders of
neutral territory and enable reprisals
by General Ma's army, which, it la as
sorted, is kept in that region for that
special object, thus cleverly avoiding
the slightest infringement of the neu
trality of China by Japan, and the Chi
nese troops, by not crossing the Man
churian frontier, could not be charged
with a violation of pledges in reppect
to noninterference in military opera
tions in Manchuria.
The opinion of an eminent strategist
given to the Associated Press today is
that the Japanese intend to attack not
only Lir.o Yang, but all along the line,
in an effort to drive General Kuropat
kin Into Mongolia, where the Chinese
are waiting for him.

It appears that William B. Judson,
of the United States engineer corps,
who is an observer with the Russian
army, helped to avert a clash between

Washington, May 18. The census
bureau in a report on irrigation in Col

irrigation works in 1902 progressed
rapidly, and the year shows a consider
able increase in the lirigntqd area. It
is probable, however, that many hun

not receive sufficient water to produce
full crops. Colorado still holds first
place among the arid states in the ex
