Americans Seem To Have Gained Important
Point In Boundary Matter? Headland
to Headland Line Does Not Apply
[Special Dispatch to Dally Alaskan.]
London, Sept. 22. -Attorney General
Finlay completed hla argument in the
Alaskan bonntlary onto today. In con
tinuing his argument yesterday and to
day he cited utterances of American of
ficials and passages from the American
brief, which he olalm* support the Ca
nadian contention as to boundary. Kin
lay claims that the Inlets of Alaska
must be considered as American terri
When the Canadian attorney general
was elaborating U|?n his theory that
the inlets from the ocean must be con
sidered as a |*>rtiou of tho territory of
the United States, Ix>rd Alverstone in
terrupted him to call attention to tho
contention of the Norwegians before
the commission on tho Retiring sea
controversy, that fjords of Norway are
territory of that oountry, claiming that
the line between the water* and coast
must be drawn from headland to head
Flnlay asserted that the sanio princi
ple should apply to Alaska, but he (Al
rerstone) interrupted him again to re
mark that it Is Imposslbc to apply tho
samo principles to Alaska as arc appli
cable elsewhere. It Is belloved that
Ix}rd Alvcrttone's observation was
called forth by tho provisions of tho
Kngllsh-Husslan treaty of 1825, which
s]>cciflcally provides that the line shall '
follow tho sinuosities of the sea coast,
and not tho customary coast line from
headland to headland.

Co. I Takes Slight Lead on Points
Yesterday was the most successful
and the most interesting of all the Held
days that have thus far been celebrated
by tho soldiers stationed at Skagway.
The program was the best, and the
sports woro entered into with more
zest than was the caso with any of the
four preceding field days. The inter
est was not confined to tho soldiers, but
citizens of the town were interested
sj>ectaU>rs t<r all the ovents. There
wero first and second prizes for all of
tho contest*, donated by citizens of
Skagway. The contest for points be
tweeu the two companies was very
closo, Company I winning by a slight
majority, though Company M won the
football and the tug-of-war in which
most Interest centered.
The football game was the most im
portant event of the day. Company I
won the kick off and tho ball went well
up In Company M's territory, but that
team soon had tho ball across the cen
ter line and thon by hard, clean light
ing, forced it within 10 yards of Com
pany I'l goal, when the gong sounded
the end of the first half. .
The second half was more exciting.
Company M kicked off and kept tho
ball going by hard work and crossed
tho line for a touch down, the only
score mode. Capt. Uryne, of the Com
pany M team, made tho run. The
teams changed ends of the Held again
? '? 1
and started to finish the second balf in
record breaking xtvle. The gong
sounded when the ball was just one
yard from the goal line of Company I.
Score 6 to 0.
The tug-of-war. after a heart-break
ing struggle of 10 minutes, was won by
Company M. Until the end, which
came suddenly, first one side had a
slight advantage ami then the other.
Finally Company M, by a mighty tug
at the ro|>e, pulled the white marker
over to its side, and tho hardest fought
ovent of tho day was over.
The four-round glove contest attract
ed much attention. Bernstein, of Com
pany I, and Ueebel, of Company M,
were tho participants. The fighting
was fast and hard, the rounds being
two minutes each, with one minute in
termission. Tho contest was declared
a draw by the referee, Lieut. Width
The catch-as-catch-can wrestling
match between Oxford, of Company M,
and Kreml, of Company I, was won by
the former. Freml won tho first down
after a 17-mioute struggle. Oxford
got the second In a 1 minute rush.
Framl forfeited the third fall and the
contest. Having strained his shoulder
in the first contest, he was unable to
continue the contest.
