Dr. A! Hrdlicka of the Smithsonian
Institution Finds Traces In Southern
Siberia and Mongolia of a People
Who Antedated the Mongols and
Chinese Greatly Resemble Indians.
Ilecent Investigations by many scien
tists Indicate that the original ludlnn
population of the United States was
the overflow of the aboriginal popula
tiou of southeastern Asia and Mongo
lia. Dr. Ales Hrdlicka of the Smith
sonian Institution, who lately returned
from that region and Is now in Wash
ington, says he found striking evl-,
deuces I bat the theory is correct. He
bases his belief not only on the prehis
toric cem'ains found in this little ex
plored region, but ou the striking re
semblance of the cxlstiug race of na
tives to the American Indians. ,
Dr. Hrdlicka explored southern Ft-,
beria, both east and west of Lake Hat
kal. He extended his search iDto outer
Mongolia. The capital, Urga, and two
large monasteries of the region are
constantly visited by natives from all
the surrounding country. On one oc
casion he had a chnu.ee to sec a path-
ering of 7,X0 natives In one place.
The museums of Siberia proved un
expeetedly rich in ethnological and
orchcological material bearing on hia
Ancient Burial Mounds.
There are thousands of "kourgons,"
or burial mounds, that dale back
through the development of the native
race to the period when they were In
the stone age and no metal implements
AH the measurements, both facial
and physical, of the natives tend to
confirm the theory that they are the
originals of the American. Indian stock,
ami some of the photographs of tho
living natives are so strikingly like th
present day Indians that it would be
impossible to tell them apart In this
connection he sajs:
"Among all these people there are
visible many and unmistakable traces
of admixture or persistence of what
appears to hare been the older popula
tion oC these regions, pic-Mongolian
and especially prc-Cbinc.se. and those

is that they are so slow in Seeing
