A RUSH OF HOMESEEKERS
in Army of Settlers Marching to ttie
THROUGH A SEA OF MOD AND WATER
Tbe Eager Crowd Was Held Back by Mus

nal to March Wan Given.
St. Pai'i., April 15. Reports from the
Bisseton Reservation indicate that the
weather in all that can be desired for the
opening today, but the conditions tinder
foot are most unfavorable. The whole
country is'a sea of mud and water, and
the race for choica selections will be to
tbe strong instead of the swift. Snnrise
also dieclosed long lines of homeseekers
and townsite boomers s retched alone tbe
boundaries of the reservation, held back
only by guns of the soldiers and the fear
that their claims will be thrown out if
they crossed in advance. Promptly at
noon the signal gnns gave the word to go.
Major Barnard's bugler announced it at
Brown Valley and as the notes resounded
from the hill-top a rapid firing of
mueketry along the line carried word to
the eager multitude, who started oft at
break neck pace for the promised land.
I Jjast nigiit a party ot nearly two
hundred nndr the leadership of Okla
homa Charlie attempted to cross Lake
Travers in the darkness and gain the
reservation, but a drunken member of the
party let matters out. A detachment of
soldiers met them as they landed, con
fisicatod their boats, and drove thein
from the reservation.

the people went wild in every town
along the bordor of the reservation.
Couriers at onco started iu every direc
tion to carry the good news to every
camp among the hundreds of home
seekers who had been camping iu the
towns for weeks. They at once began
packing up, preparatory to an early start
tomorrow to the point on tho line which
they consider the most advantageous for
an entry. The news baa caused sud
den demand for horses, and within an
hour prices went up 50 per cent. Every
body seems intent upon tmying all that
is for Bale, and every store and market
is thronged with anxious purchasers.
THE OLD SOLDIERS WILL nCIllT.
Watertown, R. D., April 15. This

peaceable, and no disturbance is feared.
The old soldiers held an indignation

and the ranchmen, who are fencing the
f.rlile land, some cattle nave been
stolen, and this has been magnified to
such an extent that the people generally
believe that the inhabitants of the basin
are thieves. Now that the Pinkertons
are in the basin, tbey will find it hard to
get ont. The mercenaries were organ
ized in Denver and brought to this point
on a special train, when they were
herded into the isolated country by their
masters, ostensibly to prevent cattle
stealing, but really to exterminate the
peaceable ranchers. The situation is
desperate. Everybody knows the facts,
but every man fears his neighbor and
refuses to talk. Governor Barber de
clines to send the militia into the field,
saying that he has no knowledge, offi
dally, of any trouble in Johnson county,
but everybody knows that men are being
killed there daily. The sheriff of the
county is aman whe is in sympathy with
the small ranchmen. He is a man of
great nerve, and if, as is clearly his duty
to "do so, he should call on the citizens to
assist him in arresting this armed force
that has without authority of law, in
vaded his county, he could quickly
gather about him 200 or 300 cowboys who
are familiar with the country and at
heme in the saddle, and, in that event,
there is little chance of any of the invad
ing party getting out alive. While the
majority of small ranchmen are honest
and industrious, they are all desperate
and daring, with but very few cowards.
And though this invading party may be
only after a few- of the worst thieves, the
small ranchmen do not know whom
thev have on their list, so that it puts
each and every one of them on the defensive.

The teatimonv of those who witnessed

after the shooting, he was gietly ex
cited. Witnesses heard him say, as he
walked up and down waiting impa
tiently for the consul-general to appear:
"Oh, if I had only followed my first
impulse and had used that whip. 1
tried to scare him, only I lost control of
myself. Lieutenant Rogers testified
that he was a friend of Hetherington;
then he added : "I went with him to
the Union Club on the 1st of January,
and with him Baw Gower Robinson.
Mr. Read was there, as well as some
others. We went mere with tne inten

and attache ot the Chinese legation, is no
longer the official representative of the
Flnwerv Kingdom in any capacity, hav
ing been notified to draw the remnant of
his salary and depart, ine entire t-in-nese
legation is greatly exercised over
the dnnlicitv of its important and trusted
employe, and loud complaints have been
forwarded to 1ns imperial majesry across
the Pacific as to the attache's machina
tions. Ho Shen Chee will escape the
headsman's knife, however, for he was
born in Hong Kong, and is a. British
subject. About the tune uf the passage
by the house ot tne weary tiiinepe oiu
the Chinese minister began to have his
doubts of the honesty uf his English
Bpeaking assistant, on account of the nu
merous letters received front Chinese
merchants in San Francisco, New ork,
Denver and other places remonstrating
agaiust the passage of the bill, which
they said was a monstrons measure, and
calculated to do them irreparable injury.
Ho, it appears, in hiB translation ot tne
bill had made it appear a very inoffiiiisive
document, Instead of a very stringent
one and had partially got lhe idea into
the minister s heart mat u woum not oe

tho minister Bent all tns i-.ngiisii iciurs
ami naoeis to New York for trail 9 la' ion
there. Just at tne time me ueary diii
was passing the minister learned its true
contents. Then there was a scene and
an abrupt dismissal. It Is sum Ho s
reaxotiB for misleading his chief were
entirely selfish. Ho hud arranged with
C. P. Huntington, Stevens and others to
net. from the Chinese government the
forfeiling banking and railroad conces
sions that once had been granted to
Count Mitkiewicz, and had alreadv made
arrangements to proceed to China on
th,t , errand with Mr. Stevens, and pos
sibly' an. liu,..i .... Milli,,na rs
lars were to be involved in the enormous
projects. His idea was to keep the
American and Chinese governments on
good terms if possible, eo as to further
his own ends, and for that reason he
blinded the whole lp(raiion us to tho true
condition of things as long an possible!.
Unfortunately for his Hrb.eme, he thought
the Gearv bill would bo held back un'il
tbe close of the pension, which would
give him plenty of time to carry out his
plan. Geary sr oiled all, however, by
unexpectedly suspending the rules and

His Ferlodltial Changes.
Boston. April 14. The announcement
that the Rev. James Field Spaulding is to
return to the Episcopal church has
created a sensation among rengious peo
ple here. On the last bunday ot last
November Dr. Bpaulding, who had been
for twelve years rector of Christ Episco
pal church, Cambridge, formally an
nounced to his people that he intended
to enter the Roman Catholic church. In
his sermon on that occasion he explained
that he could no longer feel at home in
the Episcopal church because of its
rationalism, freethinking and toleration
of unbelief. Coming as it did just as
the excitement over tbe confirmation of
Bishop Brooks, his withdrawal was re
garded as significant. People nere !-
lieved that it woum do louowea Dy me
withdrawal of many other high chnrch
Episcopalians who were scandalized by
the election of It. Brooks. This was
not the case, however, and now it is ap
parent that even in t o case of Dr.
rinaulding the step was hasty and ill-ad
vised. Dr. Spaulding was originally a
Lutheran, then a Baptist, then an
Episcopalian; but even tbat did not
prevent him from accepting or rejecting
Catholicism. He would seem to have
run the gamut of religions experience.
It is not known what induced him to re
consider hiB acceptance of Catholicism ;
but those who know bira best say that
be probably accepted it largely on eenti-
mental gronnns, ana mat a closer ac
quaintance with it convinced him that it
was not what he really wanted. He can
again enter the Episcopal ministry if be
so dei'ires, and it is generally believed
here that he will do so. -

supreme court of appeals yesterday
heard argument in the case involving
the allegation that an option had been

$20,500, which was to include also a

adopted. Shepherd refused to accept $20,

result was a damage suit instituted by
