They Jam the Boulevards of the French Capital To Join In the Welcome to Pres ident Paul Kruger. TRIP ACROSS FRANCE It Was One Continuous OTation All Day Long. Much Hostile Feeling Toward England 31anifested. Paris, Nov. 24. Mr. Kruger arrived in Paris at 10:40 this morning and was given a magnificent reception. The boulevards 'were crammed with vast crowds. Mr. Kruger" and party entered the train at Dijon at 6:30 a. m. His saloon cars were attached to the train Ie Luxe from the Riviera to Paris. In spite of the early hour a fair num ber of inhabitants assembled on the platform to cheer the departing states man. Mr. Kruger uttered a few words of thanks to the city for its splendid welcome. The train, only stopped once en route at Laroche, where a deputation with flags was waiting at the station to pre sent Mr. Krutr with a warmly worded address of admiration and sympathy for the Boer cause. Mr. Kruger thanked the deputation through his interpreter. The crowd, which was of respectable numbers ofr such a small town, gave the distinguished traveler unstinted ap plause Elsewhere along the route there were the same scenes as yesterday. People were waiting on the sides of the track and on bridges and other points of vantage. They waved their hats and cheered as the train rushed past at highest speed. Nearing Paris these gatherings grew more frequent and of larger numbers, until the train approached the termi nus the Oare De Lyon here. Then a re markable spectacle was presented. Not only the windows but the roofs of the houses commanding a view of the track were covered with spectators. In addi tion the railroad employes, engineers, cleaners, porters and guards had clamb ered on the trains lying on the side of the tracks and at the coaling platforms at every point where a glimpse only of the train itself could be secured. THE ARRIVAL This, however, was merely a foretaste of the spectacle which greeted Mr. Kruger's eyes when the train steamed into the station itself. Notwithstanding stringent precautions to admit only tieket holders, a large assemblage filled the station, while through the open doors could be seen a huge concourse of people gathered in the court yard out side. The mayor and municipal coun selors, a number of senators, deputies, army officers and reporters were mus tered on the platform. Mr. Kruger was to have passed through the station hall, which had bee.i specially arranged as a salon of honor, being profusely decorated with flowers ari where he was to be formally re ceived by the mayor and municipal councillors, but for some reason the mayor welcomed him on the platform instead, and Mr. Kruger. to the great disappointment of those waiting in the salon of honor, passed out through an other door to the front of the station, where a landau was drawn up.. Mr. Kruger entered ths vehicle and was at once driven off for his hotel amid en thusiastic cheering, which followed him along the whole route along the outer boulevards, across the Place de la. Re publique, which was a perfect sea of spectators, and through the central boulevards. He arrived at the Hotel Scribe at 11:30 a m. A large escort of mounted municipal guards rode around Mr. Kruger's car riage. Along the main boulevards the crowds increased in size and as Mr. Kruger reached the central portion of the city the sidewalks were blocked and every window was filled with sightseers. Trees Tiad been climbed and boxes, chairs and ladders were brought into use to per mit a glimpse of the noted stranger. "Within two blocks of the hotel the streets were so crowded that progress was impeded. The police precautions were very stringent. A space extending half a block from the hotel was cord oned by rows of mounted Republican guards, augmented by files of armed municipal guards. Over the entire route from the station to the hotel enthusiastic dies greeted Mr. Kruger. Shout after shout arose until there was a continu ous roar of cheering. When the Boer president reached the cleared area in lront of the hotel the demonstration was uproarious. VIVE LES BOERS. Mr. Kruger, bareheaded, bowed on all Bides, while the air was rent with cries of "Vive Kruger," "Vive les Boers." Mr. Kruser quickly alighted from his carriage and entered the hotel, but the mass of spectators was not satisfied and the people shouted, yelled and clapped their hands in chorus until a window on the balcony was opened and Mr. Kru ger appeared. Then hats were again thrown into the air 'and the shouting was resumed with renewed vigor. Handkerchiefs ard flags were waved and the greatest enthusiasm prevailed. The pcene before the hotel continued for over an hour. A body of studehts, bearing flags, attempted to march past the hotel but were stopped. Nothing daunted, the students broke into cries and songs un til Mr. Kruger again appeared in re sponse to their demonstration, after which he retired for luncheon. A sight which stirred the feelings of the crowd to the utmost was the ap pearance on the balcony of the great grandchildren of Mr. Kruger. waving a Boer flag. The little ones were cheerel to the echo, as, held aloft by a servant, they unfurled the Boer colors. Through all this fervid welcome the anti-British sentiment did not appear. The cries were confined to plaudits of Mr. Kruger and the Boers. If there were any shouts opposed to Great Britain they were not heard in the tumult. So direct had been the warnings of the prefect of police, M. Lepine, to cause the arrest of persons raising anti-British shouts, and so omnipresent were the po lice that any person desiring tot give ut terance to anti-British sentiments wou'd hardly have dared to do so- There was but one incident having any semblance of this sort. Opposite the hotel is an English store, and on Its balcony stood many spectators. When Mr. Kruger ap peared on the balcony of the hotel some- Copeka State 3ournaI. INDEX OF TODAY'S PAPER.

TRIP ACROSS FRANCE. President Kruger Received a Continu ous Ovation Along the Route. Dijon, France, Nov. 24. Mr. Krugei has become for the moment at least the popular idol of the French. His triumphant progress northward through the country through Marseilles to Dijon, has placed this beyond doubt. He met with a tremendous reception in each town along the route where the train stopped, culminating in scenes of frenzied enthusiasm here calculated to turn the head of any man. The population of Marseilles gathered in thousands to escort him to the rail road station and gave him a rousing send off, while at Tarascon, .Avigon, Valencia, Lyons, Macol and Dijon the inhabitants who crowded the railway stations made the rafters tremble with enthusiastic shouts of "Vive Kruger," and "Vive Les Boers." The demonstration was all the more significant because it shows that the fervid acclamations at Marseilles were not merely an explosion of exuberance on the part of the warm hearted ana excitable populace of a sunny clime, but sentiments shared with even greater intensity by the usually less demonstra tive and colder blooded inhabitants of the northern provinces. The warmth of the enthusiasm in creased instead of decreasing, as might have reasonably been expected from the difference in character of the inhabit ants of the provinces through which Mr. Kruger passed, but one of the most im portant phases of the demonstration was the turn it took in an anti-British direction. The few criminally foolish English whose ill-timed levity at the Hotel du Louvre in Marseilles exasper ated the people in the streets there never dreamed of the serious consequences of their act. They sowed the wind, and to day the English people are reaping the whirlwind. The news of the supposed insult to Mr. Kruger seems to have spread across France and at all stations, but especially at Lyons and Dijon shouts for the Boers were mingled with loud cries of "Down with the English." Indeed, at Lyons the denunciations of the English drowned the shouting for the Boers. This is a disturbing feature which is universally discussed. Fears are expressed that tomorrow's reception Paris may assume a character calcu lated to arouse the feeling of Great Britain against France to such an ex tent as to result in unpleasant rela tions between the two countries. The warmth of the re-enthusiasm reached in Marseilles yesterday palpably raised the spirits of Mr. Kruger and his ad visers to a high pitch. The faces of Dr Leyds, Mr. Fischer and others which on the eve of the arrival of Mr. Kruger revealed the anxiety they felt regarding his reception, were today lightd up with happiness and confidence. Evidently hope had revived in all that his mis sion to Europe wrould be crowned with success. Mr. Fischer spoke to Mr. Kruger re garding the visit of the Boer envoys to the United States and told him of the reception and welcome they had receiv ed there from the American people. Ho expressed himself grateful to know that so many Americans had expressed sym- IContinued on Sixth Page. j VASTEOF TILE Efforts to Solve the Chinese Problem oi Present Lines Are So Regarded by the British Cabinet. WEAK KNEED POLICY That of the United States Is So Characterized. No Trouble With Colombia Is Anticipated. London, Nov. 24. The pessimism re flected by the Washington specials deal ing with China finds a keen echo in Great Britain's cabinet. The gloomy foreboding that the United States will be compelled to withdraw from the con cert of the powers is only one of the causes of this feeling, for the British ministers are now inclined to believe the present lines of negotiation, can not re sult satisfactorily. "The United States," said an official of the foreign office to a representative of the Associated Press, "can not be any more anxious than England to get out of the China muddle. The cabinet min isters are reluctantly coming to believe that the endeavors to compel China to punish individual offenders are merely waste of time. Death by edict is a farce and a fairy tale. The powers' forces now in China are utterly inadequate to overrun the country and enforce their demands. England has no intention of augmenting her troops to such an ex tent as will be necessary if the Euro peans themselves undertake to inflict punishment. It looks very much as if we shall all have to climb down. The only question is how can it be done with the best dignity and under circum stances giving the most satisfactory re sults. "The policy of indefinite decimation, which, the American Journals seem to attribute to Germany, is not in the slightest shared by Great Britain. This view is not of a majority of the British press, who without taking pains to find out the inner opinion of the cabinet, gen erally condemn what they are pleased to call the "weak-kneed policy of Amer ica." The seizure of the British steamer Taboga by the Colombian government officials at Panama is not regarded se riously here. The British gunboat Pheasant will investigate the matter, and in due 'course of time Colombia will be asked for an explanation. But the affair is not likely to produce any strik ing developments. The request of the United States am bassador, Mr. Joseph Choate, for the suppression of the Filipino junta at Hong Kong has been put in the hands of the colonial office. It will probably take some weeks to ascertain the facts with doubtful results. An official said: "Hong Kong of course, is part of a free country and we cannot take too ar bitrary steps, even to please America. Most of -the international plots are hatched right here in London; but we are quite powerless to suppress them." The persistent reports that Sir Alfred Milner, the British high commissioner in South Africa, will be invalided home permanently, are groundless. He will be afforded a holiday, as soon as feasible. He is the last man the government eon templates withdrawing from South Af rica and the state of his health by no means justifies the rumors. London's new lord mayor, Mr. Frank Green, takes a very radical and friendly view of the American invasion of the city's finance, trade and transportation. "It is merely a matter of utilitarian Ism," he said to a representative of the Associated Press. "American capital is bound to improve business here and it is welcomed warm ly anything tending to bring the two na tions the most good, even though it may appear to result only to the advantage of one of them. Together, England and America are more powerful in every way than the rest of the world. "Regarding placing government loans in America, patriotism, naturally, com pels me to say English flnancers should have the first chance; but, if Americans give better terms, why, let them have them by all means. All things being equal. I see no reason why America should not be allowed to subscribe to the loan which is likely to be asked for at the resumption of parliament and if by open competition she can secure the bulk I am sure no hard feelings will ex ist in the city." Hot on the heels of Mr. Chas. T. Yerkes' underground railroad scheme come the announcements of so many projected roads that London may be said to have become the victim of the tube mania. If all the companies are allowed to operate half of London would be undermined. Parliamentary sanction will be applied for in the case of no less than ten electric tubes, necessitating the deposit of 5.000,000 as parliament ary guarantee. It is likely that several of these will never materialize; but, as Mr. D. H. Lauterbach who is here in the interest of Mr. Yerkes, points out there is no reason why London should suffer from lack of transportation facilities, when capital is going begging and the electrical science of the world is at its beck and call. Mr. Albert Johnson of New York is interested in an entirely different scheme. His interest lying in the direc tion of suburban surface traction, espe cially in Manchester and Liverpool and the large cities of the north, where he is acquiring important concessions. The announcement that Mr. Francis Howard, the son of Mrs. T. P. O'Connor by a previous marriage, is representing the leading artists in his visit to the United States in order to induce the United States government to establish a national art gallery, appears to be premature. The Daily Chronicle says: "He has, it is true, asked Messrs. Sar gent and Whistler whether a national gallery had their approval, and both made an obvious affirmative reply. But there is no question of an agency and hardly one of an advocacy of national galleries, in the sense of international galleries, which the leading cities of America already have, and a purely pa tritic collection of which Benj. West's would be flanked byWhistler's would not be particularly exhilirating." Two dukes will soon arrive in the Trited States, the Duke of Manchester and his bride, who, with Mr. Kruger, has divided the honrs of the week in public interest, and the Duke of New castle, who sails December 6. The lat ter intends to spend a few months in Florida, returning in April. He will not be accompanied by the duchess. All sorts of rumors are current about the Jockey club investigation into Lord among which is the allegation that a well known sportsman bribed jockeys with large amounts during the past sea son, with large profits.

The British ship Yarana is now 15o days out from Santa Rosalia for Iquique, where she was to load a nitrate cargo for San Francisco. Seventy per cent, reinsur ance is being paid on her. The ship Prince Victor is now out 99 days from Newcastle, N. S. W., for Hon olulu, with a cargo of coal, which it is feared has caught fire. Forty per cent, is offered to reinsure the vessel. The Rathdown is now out 53 days from Yokohama for' Portland, and 10 per cent, is being paid on her, while the Sofala is out 46 days from Yokohama, and the Westage 71 days from Hong Kong, bound for this coast. On both vessels 15 per cent, reinsurance Is being paid. The fear for all the fleet now in the southern seas is caused by the news of a terrific hurricane that has swept Samoa, Hawaii and Japan. A MEWJpJBLIC. It Has Been Established in In terior of South America. Chicago, Nov. 24. A Chronicle special from Denver, says: Henry W. Phillips, the first minister to the United States from the New South American republic of Acre, regis tered here from Arieopolis. "Arieopolis," said Mr. Phillips, "is the capital city of the republic of Acre, the 'First republic' we like to call it by way of variation, and some call us the rubber republic. I dare say the nationality is not widely known, being new and to secure formal recognition on the part of the United States is in fact my mission. I believe this is the first time that Arieopolis has been written on any American hotel reg ister; for I did not stop at San Francisco on my arrival from South America, be ing tn a hurry to be at Washington be fore the opening of congress." The Chronicle in reference to the above says: During the past 15 months a new re public known by the name of Acre hus sprung up in the forest country lying partly in Brazil and party in Bolivia. It has been established by a rich Brazilian banker and rubber dealer named Aries, who has sent himself up as president of a community of about 20.000 people, all of whom are in his employ. Demonstra tions have been made against the little country by both Bi-azil and Bolivia. TRUSTS HERE TO STAY. Their Friend Says Presidential Election Settled It. New York, Nov. 24. Charles R. Flint, in the course of an address before the Outlook club at Mont Clair, N. J., re ferred to trusts as follows: "This new consolidation has come to stay. Let no young man think other wise. That fact was settled in our re cent presidential election. The trust is here for good and under the new system that it brings in business, increased in telligence and mental acumen are de manded of the business men. It may therefore be that a collegiate education, with' the mentail training it involves, will in the future be of greater import ance than it was the past to the busi ness man. In a measure this has per haps been already shown.' Missionary Aotivity. Washington, Nov. 24. Missionary ac tivity in the Philippines is indicated by a recent report received at the war de partment which says that Rev. J. C. Goodrich, the agent of the American Bible society in Manila, has established headquarters there and Is busily en gaged in distributing the scriptures in native dialect among the varion-i is lands. Dr. Goodrich is now woriin? on other translations of the GospeS into Vizayan, Cebu-Vizayan, Ilocano and Pampango. The natives are said to re ceive the reading matter of this sort with great eagerness. In Place of the Plunger. Washington, Nov. 24. The navy de partment today entered into a contract with the Holland Submarine Boat com pany for the construction of a boat of the type of the six heretofore contract ed for, to replace the Plunger, the com pany agreeing to take the Plunger off the hands of the government and to build in her place the best type of mod ern submarine boat for the sum of $170, 000, refunding to the government the sum of $4,365 which represents other ex penses to which the government has been subjected. - Small Damage Given. Atchison, Kan., Nov. 24. The $10,000 damage suit of J. A. Hennigh against ex Sheriff Hartman, which has attracted so much attention, was settled today. The jury returned a verdict-of $1'0 damages. Hennigh was arrested by Hartman while he was sheriff, upon the charge of insan ity.

Turkey Continues Firm in Her Refusal To Grant an Exequatur For a Consulate at Harfoot. MR. GRISC0M CALLS On the Minister of Foreign Af fairs For Action. But His Efforts Have So Far Proved Unavailing. Constantinople, Friday, Nov. 24. Uni ted States Charge d'Affaires - Griscom called upon Tewfik Pasha, minister for foreign affairs, yesterday, to urge a set tlement of the difficulty in relation to the granting of an exequatur to Dr. Thomas H. Norton, who some time ago was appointed by President McKinley to establish a consulate at Harpoot. The porte however, is firm in its refusal to grant the request for an exequatur. NO MENACE INTENDED. New York, Nov. 24. Trustworthy In formation has been received from Con stantinople by the London correspond ent of the Tribune, that the reports that an American battleship will call at Smyrna on her way to the far east and that there will be something like a na val demonstration for the purpose of in fluencing the Turk are entirely un founded and no menace of this kind is intended. It is expected in official cir cles at Constantinople that the Ameri can claim for indemnities for damages to mission stations in Armenia will be settled by the Turkish government as soon as a practical method is found for discharging those liabilities without es tablishing a precedent for other coun tries. The Turkish government is anx ious to get rid of the American claims, but is bent upon doing it without com mitting itself to the general principle of responsibility for the outrages which oc curred in Armenia and elsewhere. An adjustment of the American claims will be brought about in the course of next year, it seems, and no naval demonstra tion will be required for enforcing it. News comes also from- Constantinople that an agent of the Cramps has been attempting to negotiate a contract for the construction of a Turkish warship in an American shipyard, and that Mr. Carnegie's firm has not succeeded in ob taining a large contract for the project ed road from Syria to Medina and Mecca. THE CAUSE OF THE TROUBLE. New York, Nov. 24. Oscar S. Straus, minister to Turkey, declines to say any thing about, the Porte's action, in re fusing an exequatur for a United States consul at Harpoot, declaring that all comment should come from the state department. Another American, who has spent years in the diplomatic service, said: "The Turkish authorities look with jealousy upon the appointment of con suls to interior points in the empire, es pecially when, as in the present case, the United States wishes to send a consul to a point where it has not had a con sul before. "The reason, perhaps, why the Turk ish authorities more specifically object to the appointment of a consul at Har poot is that it was at Harpoot where the American missionary property was destroyed during the Armenian troubles, on the loss of which our claims for in demnity are based. "America has no commerce at Har poot. Its interests there are only mis sionary, as in that city is located the Euphrates college, besides several mis sion schools, and it is a center for the American missionaries. But it can be reasonably claimed by our government even if we have little or no commerce there now, that we may want to culti vate it, especially as a number of our citizens are resident there. Heretofore such consular business as the United States has had at Harpoot has been con ducted by the British vice consul there." BURIES HIS PAST. Duke of Manchester Starts For JJ. S. Full of Hope. London, Nov. 24. The last person to board the American line train for Southampton at the Waterloo station this morning was the duke of Manches ter who had a great deal of baggage to attend to and was just in time to jump into his compartment as the train moved out of the station. The ducai party, including the three Misses Evans, aunts of the bride, arrived in cabs a quarter hour before the train started. Simultaneously with them came Sheriff Lawrence's state carriage. The public and railway officials mistook the latter for the conveyance of the duke and duchess and their cabs passed almost without notice. The duke was attired In a blue flan nel suit with tan shoes and shaggy Scotch traveling cap and the bride wore a long astrakan cloak. The duke and duchess had their first interview yesterday with the dowager duchess who was quite ill. Their re ception was most cordial, and in the evening there was a family dinner at the home of Mrs. Lister-Kaye, aunt of the duke. " The duke explained that the ceremony in the Alarylebone church was regarded more in the light of a legal contract than as a wedding, which it was expect ed would be more fully solemnized at St. Thomas, New York. 'We are both glad, said he. "to re turn to the United States, and I am confident everything will be satisfac torily arranged. I am sailing by the American line, you see, for I must now pattern after the Americans and a very good pattern J. nave always iouna it. Our plans depend upon Mr. Zimmer man's arrangements.

There are now in the Kansas peniten tiary about 40 prisoners under sentence of death, which in Kansas, Is now life imprisonment. Governor Stanley is making now a study of the subject, his main purpose being to ascertain the relative statistics in states where capital punishment is imposed. "The matter presents itself to me in this way," said the governor today. "If capital punishment tends to lessen mo' violence, then-it is worthy of considera tion.
