Incidents at "Villef raache ' Not
Eclipsed hy tlie Fetes at Toulon '
Meeting? of Xonbetand the
, DaXce of Genoa
PARIS, April lO.-The Important festiv
ities attending President Loubet's visit
to the Riviera- -were brought to a climax
today in the double naval demonstration
at "Vlllef ranche and Toulon. Both proved
splendid spectacles. The profuse decora
tions at Toulon, the flotillas of pleasure
boats flitting- about the harbor, the
gaily dressed warships lylttg in the road
stead and, the animation of the Immense
crowds of strangers jostling one another
in the streets and along the wharves Im
parted a color and plcturesqueness to the
scene which outvied the situation st
ViUefranche. The French people, how
ever, derive as much pleasure from the
incidents at "Villefraache as from the
meeting of M. Lotbet and the Duke of
Genoa at Toulon.
"The Russian squadron," says Le Jour
nel des Debats, "saluted the President on
his departure for Toulon so that Russia
will be associated as completely -as could
be desired with the fetes on the Riviera.
Those who have "spoken about the cool
ness of two friendly and allied countries
are now compelled to admit that they
took the desire for the reality. Those
who contended that Russia wished to
manifest hostility toward the Franco
Italian rapprochement now have proof
to the contrary in the ract that the Rus
sians came to salute the President at
tfie very moment when the fetes at Tou
lon, sealing this rapprochement, were
about to take place."
M. Loubet fully appreciates the value
of the French set word "ally" In connec
tion with? the relations of! France to
Russia and he again took an opportunity
to pronounce it on board the Alexander
II this morning. When accepting tea
.from Admiral Blrlleff, ne said:
"I am "Very much pleased that His
Majesty the "Emperor has sent a squad
ron to salute the President of the French
Republic I am very grateful for this
mark of respect and I raise my glass to
the health of their Majesties the Em
peror and Empress, and, to the friendly
and allied Russian Nation and to the
prosperity of the Russian Army."
Admiral Blrlleff suitably responded,
toasting "The President of the French
Republic, the prosperity of La Belle.
France, my second fatherland, and the
glory of therencb-Navy and Army"
""The 'ceremony of decorating -Admiral
Blrlleff with the cross of the Legion of
Honor was performed In the presence
of the whole crew. M. Loubet then em
braced the Admiral and expressed regret
that the previously fixed hour for his
arrival at Toulon prevented him making
a detailed Inspection of the Russian
flagship. All the officers of the flagship
were presented to M. Loubet who shook
hands -with them all.
The Alexander II -was the first to fire
a parting salute as the St Louis steamed
out of the bay and the crews manned
the Russian warship "when the St. Louis
passed, shouting seven times, "Viva la
Republlque," or raising some kind of
hurrahs. Simultaneously the trumpets
blared and there was a great beating of
drums. After M. Loubefs departure,
Admiral BIrlleff entertained the local
officials on board the Alexander II.
The general programme at Toulon was
carried out without a hitch. The Duke
of Genoa and the Italian officers and
sailors met with a flattering welcome,
the French seamen fraternizing with the
Italians on shore. Every desire was
shown on both sides to cultivate a mu
tual good feeling.
Extracts from the Italian press evinc
ing satisfaction over the events at Tou
lon and expressing the belief that these
will result in drawing the two countries
together are extensively reproduced in
and indorsed by the French press today.
the Spanish nallon. The President's
third toas was. Introduced as follows:
"Will the 'officers at the navy of His
Majesty, the Emperor of Russia, whose
flag has been acclaimed here amid never
to be forgotten festivities, and will the
foreign officers .deputd to come to Tou
lon, -who have- been pleased to sit at this
table beside their French comrades', per
mit me to associate them in a toast -which
I propose to the- officers and crews of our
nacy? The soma spirit of honor, the
came habit of discipline and the same
passion for danger, have established a
noble brotherhood among the navies of
all nations. It is only Just to unite them
in one and the same tribute for the ex

they give to humanity?
