THE sporting season has opened
with a rush that promises exceedingly
well. It is to be hoped that it will
not be marked by the bitter hostili

it last year. Amateur or professional

to be believed that underhand work
is a necessary accompaniment.

Bloodshed Seems to Be in Sight
^IOH the Sisseton Beser- *.
Thelfew Town NaM&i in Honor
ft of a Pluckv
BBOW VALLEY, Minn.. Special, April 18.
—Apparently everything is quiet on the
Sisseton reservation to-night, but there is
every evidence that serious trouble is brew
ing, though the crisis may not be reached
for several days. To-night 150 men who
had made filings at Waterloon, passed
through this village, entered the reserva
tion, and went on the northwestern part of
the reserve, where the good lands and the
new townsite are located. I talked to sev
eral of them, and every one stated decidedly
that he meant to have land. They were
among the first of those to file, and eay they
all filed in less than two hours. This is re
markably short time, and nt of the
squatters were of course unable to reach
claims twenty and twenty-five miles away
in that time.
The authorities claim that the situation
now looks very serious, but of course it is
largely a matter of conjecture. These filers
say they are going to have some ot that
land. Thev cannot get it without a fight.
Four or five days will determine the case.
For a novel reason the new town is had
its name changed rom Sisseton to Effing
ton. Alter consultation the Sisseton Land
company and the people dirtctly around
the town site unanimously decided to name
the placeafter MissEffiebtauffer, the school

TkE FIRST ONE TO REACH IT.
She made the journey alone from Brown's
Valley to the northern boundary, riding
horseback forty-five miles on Annl 14 and
sleeping that night in a tent. On the morn
ing ot April 15 she rode alone twenty-lour
miles, following the boundary until she
met the crowd. She led all the men to the
new town, and tney complimented her in
the manner described. The town is sur
rounded by some of the best land ou the
reservation, and settlers are coming to it
from mile3 around. I rode o\er it lor sev
eral miles, and was surprised to find so
large a tract with so little land not in every
way desirable. Already there have been
started a general store, lumberyard, hard
ware store, blacksmith shop, grocery, mill
inery establishment and a hotel.
Things are quiet in Brown's Valley.
Many more people returned here to-day
iootsore and weary without claims or any
thing else. Many others passed through
on their way to Wilmot. They have lo
cated claims and go ere to file. The
boom is o\er and there is little more to tell
unle-s fighting bejmis. Many good claims
were secured to-day. There are still many
vacant ones. L^rae prairie hres are raging
to-ni^ht and a stiff east wind prevails.

Some of the lines by this means were kept
in operation most of the day. The Sioux
City Street Railway company, with twenty
five miles of hue and the most important

noon. The cable line men have been ar
