proved a triumph for Mr Krugur such
as even tilts Uoer delegates ami Ills
most ardent admirers failed to antic
ipate The delirium of enthusiasm
which ninrked every step of ills prog
ress from the time he landed until the
hotel was reached was a revelation
even to the people of Marseilles them
An assomhly of such masses exceed
Jng even the most sanguine estimate
inljlht perhaps he partly explained by
the ceremonious obsequies of the
bishop of Marseilles including an im
posing religious procession from the
cathedral but nothing can minimize
the spontaneous explosion of sentl
ment displayed toward Mr Kruger by
the entire population of the first port
and one of the largest cities of Kranee
Yet the grandeur of this demonstra
tion perhaps ranks second in im
portance to the emphatic manifestos
of no compromise which Mr Kruger
delivered in a low voice but one vi
brating with emotion accompanied by
energetic gestures of the right hand
stirring the hearts of all wit In bear
The last sentences of his declaration
were uttered with a vigor and a de
cision which bore out his reputation
as the Incarnation of iron will and
stubborn resistance Ills mere deliv
ery of a declaration of such far-reaching
Importance testifies to the inde
pendence of his character as it came
as a surprise even to ills intimate po
litical advisers who up to the last
were In ignorance of his determina
tion He announced to the world that
the Hoers would be free people or die
The unfortunate occurrence at the
hotel on the main boulevard alone
marred the character of the demon
stration which up to that moment had
been unanimously and exclusively a
tribute of sympathy and admiration
Vive Kruger Vive les Boers
and Vive la Libert o were the cries
that formed a hurricane of cheering
and swept over the city Unfortunate
ly the highly reprehensible foolishness
of half a dozen persons in throwing
small coins into the crowd as Mr
Kruger passed acted like magic In
lita conjuring up an anti British outburst
which it needed all the promptitude
and energy of the police to prevent
becoming a serious disturbance The
hotel remained for the rest of the day
in a state of siege while at one time
a procession several thousand strong
marched in the direction of the British
consulate shouting Down with the
English and raising other threaten
ing cries The result was that a
strong body of police was compelled
to disperse the demonstrators al
though It was not found necessary to
make more than n few temporary ar
Text of KruRnrrt AilriroM
The following is the text of Mr Km
gers speech on landing
I thank the people of Marsplllos for tliolr
welcome I thank oil tills population art
vombled In great concourse to grewt nit
for although I wear nimirnliiB for the mis
fortunes of my country anil although I

for our cause which Is that of llbeity I
am very proud and happy at having chosen

net foot on free soil and to bo received by
you as n fieemnn Hut my first duty Is
to thank your government for all the tokens
of Intercht that again only recently It was
pleased to give me I bellcvo England
had she been better Informed would never
have consented to this war and since the
expedition of Jameson who wished to seize
the two republics without the necessity
of firing a rltlu shot I have never ceased
to demnnd a tilbunal of arbitration which
lias always been refused Th war waged
upon us In the two republics reached the
lust limits of barbarism During my life
I hare hud to tight many times the savages
of he tribes of Africa but the barbarians
we have to fight now are worse than the
others They even urge the Ktiltlrs ngalust
us They burn the farms we worked so
bard to construct and they drive out our
women aud children whose brothers and
husbands thry havo killed or taken prls
oarrs leaving thfta unprotected and roof
leas and often wlthoot bread to t But
whatever tbey may do we will never sur
render Wo will fight to the end Our
great Imperishable confidence reposes In
tb EUrnal la our wl VT know our
came U Just and If the Justice of men Is
wanting to us Ho the l Ucruut who mus
ter of all peoples and to whom belongs
the future will inner abandon us I ns

London Nov Jt -Nine of the for-
gn envoys says the Peking corre
spondent of the Morning Tost have
written strong letters denouncing the
punishment edict aud declaring that
Tung Fu Ilslang must be punished
London Nov ll Or Morrison wir
ing the Times from Peking Tuesday
says The appointment of Yu Chang
as governor of the province of llu Pel
has been cancelled This was due to
the strenuous British protest Chlng
Using who has been appointed In his
place Is regarded us almost equally ob
jectionable The foreign envoys have
agreed that the consistent bad faith
which the Chinese have shown In dis
seminating abroad misleading Intelli
gence shall be recorded In the preamble
to the conjoint note It Is reported
that Chinese troops have repulsed a
Herman expedition but no details have
been received

No Word Il oiu Conger
Washington Nov The state de
partment so far has heard nothing
from Minister Conger respecting the
impasse reported to have been
readied by the foreign ministers at
Peking In fact saveTa brief expres
sion respecting the insulllciency of the
punishments proposed by the Chinese
government to be Indicted upon the
responsible leaders of the Boxer move
ment Mr Conger has not communi
cated with the department for more
than a week
Without taking Issue with Mr Con
ger respecting this matter of punish
ments the state department has earn
estly advised him not to insist on im
possible conditions in t ho negotiations
An interesting problem Is suggested
by the possibility which now Is almost
a probability that the ministers rep
resenting the powers at Peking cannot
reach an agreement The Impression
seems to be that If a majority of the
ministers or perhaps even one of the
representatives of a great power with
holds assent to the agreement thon the
whole undertaking falls and there
must bo either fresh negotiations dl
rectly between the home governments
In the effort to agree upon new basis
of action or the powers must proceed
to deal with the Chinese situation
singly or In groups the latter contin
gency having been provided for in the
German British agreement

Denver Nov 23 It Is Impossible for
the railroads to estimate the amount of
damage suffered by reason of tho
wind storm which swept the lines for
nearly UK miles along the base of the
mountains yesterday The wires were
blown down aud trains are moved with
great caution In the absence of tele

had their roofs blown oil station build

through the storm region and the
tracks strewn with wreckage which
further retarded the movement of
Between Pueblo nnd Colorado
Springs houses were damaged hay
stacks blown away and outbuildings
demolished The property loss will
be heavy among the ranchmen
The storm stands without a parellel
In many respects Former severe
wind storms have been accompanied
with either rain or snow but In this
case It was neither and the wind car
ried sand gravel and smnll stones
similar to the awful sand storms of
the desert It was remarkable and
unlike any past storms in the scope of
territory covered though terminating
at the fojt hills seemingly Cripple
Creek and the district surrounding
was basking in bright clear weather

Colorado Springs and the country be

The damage at Colorado Springs by
the storm will approximate 200000

for a 30000000 reduction of the war
