The ex-President of the Transvaal
Declares His People Will
MARSEILLES, Nov. 22. Today proved
a triumph for Mr. Kruger such as even
the Boer delegates and his most ardent
admirers failed to anticipate. The delir
ium of enthusiasm which marked every
step of his progress from the time he
landed until the hotel was reached was a
revelation, even to the people of Mar
seilles themselves. It fully equaled, If It
did not surpass, the frantic demonstra
tion of patriotism with which France
opened her arms to Major Marchand at
Toulon on hli return from Fashoda. An
assembly of such masses, exceeding even
the most sanguine estimate, might per
haps be partly explained by the ceremo
nious obsequies of the Bishop of Mar
seilles, including an imposing religious
procession from the cathedral, but noth
ing can minimize the spontaneous explo-
.sion of sentiment displayed toward Mr.
Kruger by the entire population of the
first port and one of the largest cities of
Yet the grandeur of this demonstration
perhaps ranks In importance to the em
phatic manifesto of "no compromise"
which Mr. Kruger delivered In a low
voice, but one vibrating with emotion,
accompanied by energetic gestures of the
right hand, stirring the hearts of all
within hearing. The last sentences of
his declaration were uttered with a
vigor and a decision which bore out his
reputation as to the incarnation of iron
will and stubborn resistance. His mere
delivery of a declaration of such far
reaching Importance testifies to the lnde-
pendeacQ.ot.hls-character, aslt cameras
advisers, who, up to the last, Were irf
Ignorance of his determination. He an
nounced to the world this morning that
the Boers would be free people or die,
and the faces of the men about him,
Wessels, Froebler and the other Boer
representatives, bore the look of fearless
determination reflecting the spirit that
Mr. Kruger declared animated every man,
woman and child In the Transvaal.
One Unfortunate Incident.
The unfortunate occurrence at the hotel
on the main boulevard alone marred the
character of the demonstration, which up
to that time had been unanimously and
exclusively a tribute of sympathy and
admiration. "Vive Kruger," "Vive les
Boers," and "Vive la llberte,'' were the
cries that formed a hurricane of cheer
ing and swept over the city. Unfortu
nately the high reprehensible foolishness
jpf half a dozen persons In throwing small
.coins Into the crowd as Mr. Kruger
vpassed acted like magic in conjuring up
an anti-British outburst, which it needed
all the promptitude and energy of the
police to prevent becoming a serious dis
turbance The hotel remained for the
rest of the day In a state of siege, while
at one times a procession several thou
sand strong, marched in the direction of
the British Consulate, shouting, "Down
with the EngUsn and raising other
threatening cries The result was that a
strpng body of police was compelled to
disperse the demonstrators, although it
was not found necessary to make more
than a few temporary anfests. Through
out the evening, however, large bands
of students and other youths marched up
and down in front of Mr. Kruger's hotel,
and the hotel which was the scene of the
unfortunate Incident, cheering in chorus
for Mr. Kruger and the Transvaal and
denouncing England. These demonstrat
ors were more noisy than dangerous, and
the police wisely left them to relieve their
feelings by shouting instead of interfer
ing with them, which might have created
The incident was the main topic of con
versation this evening, and Indignation
was universally and vigorously expressed,
but the adult better classes did not seem
to magnify Its importance. The Mayor,
immediately on hearing of what had oc
curred. Issued vigorous instructions for
the discovery and prosecution of the cul
prits. Every one expressed astonishment at
the robust and healthy appearance of Mr.
Kruger, considering his advanced age.
He walked firmly, leaning but lightly
upon his cane when he crossed the land
ing stage to the landau in which he drove
with Dr. Leyds and MM. Paullst and
Thourel. The landau was followed by
five carriages contalnlngBoer officials, and
these were followed by six others convey
ing the officers of the Gelderland and the
members of the Marseilles reception com
mittee, all forming a procession headed
by various societies, with banners, and
escorted by a large police force.
Mr. Kruger repeatedly acknowledged
the acclamations of the crowds that filled
the sidewalks and balconies of the houses,
black with sightseers, waving hats and
handkerchiefs. At several points along
the route bouquets were presented to him,
and on the balcony of the Military Club
stood a group of officers in gala uniforms,
Tjtoo joined In the ovation. On arriving
at the hotel, Mr. Kruger's ears were
greeted with the strains of the Boer
hymn, played by a local band, while the
standard-bearers drew up In two ranks at
the entrance and waved the standards as
Mr. Kruger, bareheaded, passed between
them to liis apartments.
The Speech at the Hotel.
Soon after, in response to a thunderous
ovation, e speared on the balcony and
repeatedly bowed, but some 10 minutes
elapsed without a sign of abatement in
the enthusiasm He spoke a few words,
which were Interpreted In French by Dr
Leyds, which were followed by a renewal
of the frenzy. Finally, to testify to hla
gratitude, he took in his hand a corner
of the French, tricolor that was flying
from the balcony between the Transvaal
and the Free State flags, and pressed It
1 to bis heart again and -again. The enthu-
siastic people cheered him until he with

The Prefect and Mayor then called to

briefly, declaring how deeply he. had been
touched by the unexpected warmth of his
reception in Marseilles, and by the sym
pathy of the people.
After luncheon and a little repose, Mr.
Kruger descended to the hall of the hotel,
where he received the delegations. Ho

of the fireplace. Dr. Leyds and Messrs.

and the ex-President's Speech.
MARSEILLES, Nov. 22. Paul Kruger:
ex-President ot the South African "Repub
lic, landed here at 10:45 A. M. 'The scene
at the landing place was an animated
one. The decks of all the steamers in the
Lyons Basin were crowded with sight
seers. The crowd swelled to great pro
portions as the news spread through the
city that the Gelderland had entered the
harbor. A cold northwest wind, which set
in during the night, cleared away yester
day's clouds, and the" morning broke
fresh but with bright Bunshlne. The
inner harbor was all the gayer for the dec
orations of a number of French vessels
which arrived yesterday, covered with
multi-colored flags and pennants, among
which Boer flags were prominently dis
played. The Gelderland was sighted several
miles out at sea, and Dr. Leyds- and
Messrs. Fischer and Wessels, an inter
preter, and Dr. Van Hammel immediately
proceeded to the Dutch warship in a
steam launch and boarded her. A con
ference between the Boer leaders ensued,
while the Gelderland was slowed' down

was the president, had been waiting in the
cold, damp morning air for two hours,
when a boat from the Gelder
land landed Dr. van Hammel, the
bearer of a message, saying Mr.
Kruger could not land for two hours.
The messenger explained that the com
mander1 of the Gelderland, before Mr.
Kruger left Dutch territory (otherwise
the Dutch warship) desired to render him
the honors due to a President of the
South African Republic, and the com
mander also wished the officers and crew
of the Gelderland to take a solemn fare

ship of a guard of honor drawn up on
her deck. For this ceremony the sailors
were to don their full dress, which would

direct primary nominations will operate
to place before the electors such nom

tors desire to stand for the various of
fices, and will not operate to defeat that
end, that system would result in the per
petual retirement of the boss system and

I would prefer not to pledge myself to
vote for any particular thing, whether
direct primary nominations or not, as
one should be governed in that or any
other matter wherein he acts representa
tively only after a careful consideration
of the means employed to brliur it about.
In other words, I would want to see the
bill first and exercise my own Judgment
as to its efficacy. Any scheme of pretended
reform defeats or delays real reform, and
to consider it in the Legislative Assembly
Would be a waste ot valuable time.
I have no bill formulated relating to
primary nominations. Others have given
i this matter great consideration and are
mora competent to frame such a measure.
But X am sure that all the members
of the Legislature will scrutinize a bill
relating to that subject with great care
and pleasure. If the political parties
were more equally represented in the
Oregon Legislature more satisfactory
work might he expected in this particular
respect, as well as in all others.
In conclusion, I will say, it-is my opin
ion that the more nearly any and all mat
tern are brought In touch with the elec
tors, the better it will be for the public.
The further they are moved from the
electors, the more flourishing It will be
for the political boss and the patriot who
always wants something. In other words,
