FIND NEW FOSSILS  '   IN  YUKON  VALLEY  Additional evidence to support the  theory that the continent of America was once joined to Europe at Siberia is furnished ihy the discoveries  - of E. M. Kindle and J. II. Harnett,  who comprised a United States geo-  logical survey party to visit the Yukon valley and adjacent territory  during the summer. Messrs Kindle  and Barnett arrived in Seattle Friday night and left for Washington,  D.G\, to make their report. to the  government. . ," - '���������  '���������'Our.discovery iii Alaska of several species of fossil inveiit-hu'ates  which do not exist,in any other part  of the continent of America, but  ���������which do exist in Siberia, lends ���������'to  the belief that the two continents  were once joined," said Mr. B,iruetl.<  "I am not at liberty to announce  just what animal fossils we discover  ed, tout thc find is an interesting  one, as it was not known before  that these forms existed at all. on  the American continent.  "We started for Alaska on Juuc.fi,  of this year.

We went 208 miles up t}ie Porcupine  River from Fort Yukon to the boundary, from tha boundary above Eagle to Circle City, and from'Rampart to Tanana.  "On our trip we found fossilized  oysters and clams, which closely resemble the prcseii'tHday fresh-water  mussels and other like forms of the  invertebrates.

"To a certain extent the fate ot  the boy may be determined by my  actions and I cannot talk," he-stated.. "However thoroughly 1 may  know the points, something 1 would  say might be misconstrued, and 1  don't want that to happed."

There is no longCL any  doubt but lhat the deteusc outlined  the day alter thc body of J. F.  Sloane was picked up by the police,  that of mental irresponsibility, will  be followed to the end.  Sydney Sloane may be proved the  Ibesn's ghost in the Sloane household. The old story of the sins of  ���������the rather being visited upon the son  will be told,-by the jury. A tendency in the unind of the boy which  made -him too' weak to resist the in 1  pulse to "slay his father, after being  angered in a y-iiarrel, and thc hereditary -tendencies that made the boy  what he was will bo graphically, pic-  lured.  "It was not for- money that Sydney Sloane killed his father," stated a friend of his family's today.  That will hjK one of the plates in tho  armor to defend the hoy. It was.  not .money. There was no reason  a sane boy or man could have, it is  argued. It must have been, there,  fore, a weakened mind', an irresponsible mentality that prompted tho  deed.  This is the line along which thei  friends of the hoy arc workJn'Ji;-. They  are gathering up the threads of evidence to support this theory. There  may be nothing left undone to prove  the boy to have been irresponsible.  Upon that thc defense will base its  ease, a nil tight for the life of the  boy. '  It is aligned lhat |tbe previous confessions of the boy as to the cause  of the murder, will have no effect.  In the lirst place he made two or  three contradictory statatnents and  it will be hard to prove anything by  them.  is plenty   ol   pig   lion   ami   plenty  lllci   av.ul.uiie, ~   said   Ml.   jYIoolc;  lie  also  slaio-,     LliaL   Lhe   iiomule ! ilKC   u,lu   l'*-^erbial  iilaiit  lb  to .uu  111 Led  with   u     ictoit  * ..  .or tiie iliblniing oi by-piodueis 01  tvooa, wiiien wm tend io out douu  1,110 cnoLiiuous cost ol the nicl necessity 111 Ltie 1 eliiieiuciiL oL lion b)  mo ciiaicoal pLoeess.  !

In the final -fall euch.   employed all  tho holds  and  locks   they knew,  and  while  the   work was    not as fast in  the two previous falls, it was intense  ly interesting to a student of wrestling.     Murdock  evidently , tried      his  with      a   succession  of      hard  Lucj holds he put on him.     A half-nelson  a far-arm,   which seemed   to (be  Ma;,   Sutliin   Won.

It   was   n  championship  game  in  ladies   singles.  7-.1,   6-3.      '  Thc  '"cores  were  The  local  man     won tho  Hist     and  third falls,   in      what  was   generally  conceded to be one of the fastest and  most  spectacular   matches    seen     .in  Vancouver   since the memorable    all-  night   contest   between' Davies       and  Berg   a few years ago.  *  ��������� It  was a contest of skill,     science  and strength   against  practically   equal  strength,      speed  and  endurance.  But the science was the -deciding ele  ment,   and   as Murdock was the possessor  of that necessary quality,'   he  eventually won out. _ The  first     fall  ���������went to Murdock in ten minutes. The  second' was secured   by Johnson with  iwith    a  full  nelson    in     twenty-nine  minutes.      The  third    and      deciding  fall   was   a   long,   gruelling    contest,  and  was finally'' wota by Murdock   in  a few seconds  over  an  hour.  There was practically no difference iu the weight ol the men whoa  they went on the mat lor the lirst  fall. Murdock had Lrained down to  IGti-i, while Johnson was at his us-  -oaL weight of 1551,, so Lhat both  men were well below the recognd-ied  ' lightweight limit. For the greater  part ol the ten miuuLes in thc first  rlall, JVlurdock kept Johnson on the  defensive, and finally ���������got. hiia with  u, half-nelsou and far-arm holds, with  .-which he slowly forced his shoul  '"ders  over-  During the twenty.-minute rest  (period immediately .following the securing of the first fall by Murdock,  Stan Kecfcr of Mount Pleasant aad  !J.. Bradbury of Nanaiuio mixed on  the mat and entertained thc crowd  .while' it was waiting for the ro-  .turn of the big men. These two  ���������youngsters put up a game match,  and although neither of them secured a fall during tho short time which  rthey were on the mat, yet they showed themselves ^ well acquainted with  tine tricks of wrestling. They were  J>olh decidedly aggressive from the  start, and kept up a hot pace all  ,lhe way through. When time was  called honors were about even, and  ...the'audience gave them a good round  Of applause. The match between  these two young men was arranged  at the last moment, and as neither  was in liis best condition, a finished  match could not be expected from  .them. Bradbury went on the mat  at 117 pounds, while Keefer weighed   122.      The   wrestling   weight  Murdoch's favorite hold, finally got  Johnson in a bad posiiion and he  was forced 1o bridge. Ahirdock's over eagerness to get his shoulders  down allowed John,son a chance  to twist clear when he w,as all ,-but  gone. This happened twice. But on  tho third time 'Murdock got������him in  .exactly the same, position again, and  this time he let his weight tell and  the Nanaimo man's bridge was slowly broken and his'shoulders at last-  touched the mat.  Both were considerably, used up in  the match Johnson had one eye  nearly closed r by rubbing along tho  mat.

London, ' Sept, 8.���������. A fresh outcry  from naval experts (o tho effect  that Great Britain's supremacy on  tbe water is threatened, has 'been  raised in connection with the com.  missioning at Portsmouth of tbe  Dreadnaught,  the largest ship afloat.  The government's naval policy is  bitterly attacked and 'severe crit.  icistm heaped upon the cabinet for  the'delay in laying down more war-  sdips of  thc "Dreadnought class.   "*  Accord in j*; to tho present program  me England will have six Dreadnoughts in hand in 1908. An.organ  i/ed campaign is being prepared to  force Premier Cnmpbcll-UaiiiiM'inan  to agroi. to the programme of the ag  itatorsto build four Dreadnoughts to  every two laid down by Germany.  Much com ment is aroused by an expression in the Express which said  Hint while Brynn was in London ho  made n secret pact with the Prein ior hy which they agreed to negotiate a perpetual peace treaty between the United States and Croat  Britain in tbe event of "Brynn being  elected President.
