Old Klondike Champion Wins Best Fight in
Yukon's History in Eighth Round
Last Night
[Special Di&patch to the Daily Alaskan.]
Dawsoo, Oc'.ober 1? Hurley knocked
Milieu out in the eighth round last
night at the Dawson Athletic Associa
tiou olab rooms, after one of the tam
est and lu'-'st interesting fistic battle*
that eter took place in this city.
Both men were in the pin t of condi
tion Hurley was assisted by Mare no,
; Caaailly and She i Ids, while Baggerly,
NVyatt aud Sueno looked after Milieu.
Charley 15. yle was time keeper. There {
were no preliminaries. Frtnk Slavin '
wss referee and he said Marquis of
Quaensbury rules wr.uld gotorn.
The fighters entered the ring at 10:30
p m and ?hook hand*. Th jy did some
gentlemenly sparring and li;;ht tapping
until the gooff sounded.
The second round was a trlltle live
lier. Some pi*etty passes were made
Hath were erect fjc d each other In a
manner that old well with the spec
tators.
The third round was a regu'ar
whirlwind. Millett fought his man all
orer the ring, from corner to corner,
faxt and furiously. Science was forgot
ten. It was simply slugging. The
spectators rose in their seats and ye'
led, while the two men. always at close
quarters, because of Millitt's endeavor
to rush his oppooeof, wrre using short
jabs and hooks.
In the next round Hurley was the
fresher of the two.
The rest of the rounds were tiresome
repetitions, Millitt rushing from one
clinch into another, until the eighth
when Millett again attempted to rush
things. Burley met him square in the
face, ducked Millett's left, and with a
right hand hook knocked Millett down
and out.
All things considered it was the best
light ever pulled off in the Yukon.

ARMIES ARE fKffli
Russian outposts are being forced back
near Mukden? It is thought Kuropat
kin's condition is serious.
[Special Dispatches to the Daily Alaskan.]
, St. Peters b a rg Oct. 1? There was some sharp fighting near Mukden this morning
which resulted in the Russian outposts being driven back.
Official confirmation of the capture of Da pass by the Japanese Las been received,
and the enemy is now pressing Kuropatkin's left flank.
.
Paris, October 1 ? It is believed that the war department at St. Petersburg has re
ceived more information from the front than it is giving the public and that the capture
of Da pass by tbe Japanese with so little fighting is a blow for which the department is
i unable to account. The fall of that pass could not help but be a keen disappointment to
i the Russians, as it opens up the way for Japan's attempt at turning the Russian flank and
: forcing a desperate battle whether Kuropatkin is ready for it or not. This would neces
sarily, if successful, force the Russians into a hasty retreat in order to avoid being sur
! rounded.
