Marseilles, Nov. 22. Paul Kruger landed here at 10:45 tliis morning. Mr. Kruger was persuaded to hurry in order not to disappoint the crowds which had gathered to see him land. From the moment the white twelve-oared barge left the side of the Gelderland, with Mr. Kruger surrounded by the Boer repre sentatives, including Dr. Leyds and Messrs. Fischer and Wessels, the cheer ing did not cease until Mr. Kruger en tered his hotel. Even then a large con course of peopfe remained in front of the building until Mr. Kruger appeared on the balcony. Replying to the addresses of welcome of the presidents of "the Paris and Mar seilles committees on the landing stage, Mr. Kruger spoke in Dutch and in a low voice. But he accompanied his words with energetic movements of his hat, which he held in his right hand. He eald: "I thank the president of the Mar seilles committee and the president of the central committee of the independ ence of the Boers for their welcome. I thank all this population assembled In great concourse to greet me, for, al though I wear mourning for the mis fortunes of my country, and although I have not come to seek festivities, still, I nevertheless accept with all my heart these acclamations, for I know they are dictated to you by the emotions which are inspired in you by our trials and by your sympathy for our cause, which Is that of liberty, which awakened you. I am truly proud and happy at having chosen as my point of landing a port In France, to set foot on free soil and j be received by you as a free man. But my first duty is to thank your govern ment for ajl the tokens of interest that again only recently it was pleased to give me. I believe England, had she been better informed, would never have consented to this war, and since the ex pedition of Jameson, who wished to seize the two republics without the ne cessity of firing a rifle shot, I have nev er ceased to demand a tribunal of arbi tration, which, up to now, has always been refused. "The war waged on us in the tw6 re publics reached the last limits of bar barism. During my life I have had to fight many times the savages of the tribes of Africa, but the barbarians we have to fight now are worse than the others. They "even urge the Kaffirs Bgalnst ub. They burn the farms we worked so hard to construct, and they drive out our women and children, ' whose husbands and brothers they have killed or taken prisoners, leaving them unprotected and roofless, and often without bread to eat. But, whatever they may do, we will never surrender. We will fight to the end. Our great, imperishable confidence reposes in the Eternal, in our God! We know our cause Is Just, and if the justice of man lis wanting to us He, the Eternal, who is Master of all peoples, and to whom belongs the future, will never abandon us. "I assure you that if the Transvaal and the Orange Free State must lose their independence it will be because all the Boer people have been destroyed, with their women and children." Michael Davitt delivered a short ad dress in behalf of the Irish people which evoked most enthusiastic applause from those present, during which cries of "Vive l'lrelande" resounded. The gist of Mr. Davitt's address was inter- Explolt of a Detachment of One Hun dred American Troops. Manila, Nov. 22. A detachment of 100 man, from Companies I and M, Twenty-fifth U. S. Infantry, colored, under Captain O'Neill, made a clever capture of thirty insurgents with rifles, supplies and 1,500 rounds of ammuni tion, in a camp east of San Marcelino, which the Americans charged at day break. Among the rifles captured were a few Krag-Jorgenaens, which the in surgents had recently secured. Several of the Filipirfos were wounded. Captain Gulick, with sixteen men of the Forty-seventh infantry, had a sharp- encounter with insurgents con cealed in a blockhouse near Binoron- gan. The insurgents flred a volley from thirty rifles on the appearance of the Americans, wounding two, one mortal ly. The firing soon became hot on both sides. With nine men, Captain Gulick swam the river, gained the hillside, routed the enemy and incidentally killed several fleeing Bulomen. The came party with a score of comrades, drove the insur gents from Bulasan, where they were Intrenohed. The detachment killed fourteen and captured five in two days. Numerous reports of minor engage ments and captures in southeastern Luzon have arrived here in letters brought by steamer. OPPOSED BY NINE ENVOYS CHINA'S PROPOSED PUNISHMENT OP BOXER LEADERS. AMERICAN HO AliJ MEETING. the Twentieth Century Fund and China Situation Discussed. Boston, Nov. 22. Many of the cor porate members of the American Board met for a conference in the Hotel Belie vue this afternoon to consider the rais ing of the "Twentieth Century fund" and the new responsibilities through the trouble in China. A brief reception was held by Presi dent Samuel B. Capen, LL.D., his ex cellency Governor W. Murray Crane, who is a member of the board, and sev eral of the missionaries who have re cently returned from North China. Luncheon was served, after which President Capen stated that tljere was abundant reason for encouragement, because of steady gain in gifts from the living. The present income for the board was about $700,000. The existing debt is due to a falling off of legacies. The Twentieth Century fund of $250, 000 will take care of debt and the plan is to add all legacies received and spend one-third of the total each year. Short addresses favoring the plan and reviewing the Chinese work were made by. Colonel Charles A. Hopkins, Rev. James H. Roberts, late of Kalgan, North China; Rev. George H. Ewing, who escaped from Pao-Ting-Fu before the massacres there, Rev. Charles Ewing. who was in the siege of Pekin; Rev. Henry P. Perkins of Linchlng; Rev. F. M. Chapin, who was in the siege of Pekin; Rev. W. C. Noble of Pao-Ting-Fu, Dr. Lucien C. Warner, In behalf of the co-operating committee of New York, and Charles A. Hull, Esq., of Brooklyn. Strong Letters Denouncing the Decree Have Been Written by the Ministers Mr. Conger Advised by Stute Depart ment Not to Insist on Impossible Con ditions In the Negotiations. London, Nov. 23.

Speaking this even ing at a banquet given in his honor. General Duller defended the British army against the charges of outrages against women and of barbarous treat ment of Boers, declaring that all were false. He said that in three cases of alleged assaults upon women that were brought to his attention two of the ac cused were Hottentots following the force, and the third was also a Kaffir. "The army never behaved better," said Sir Redvers. "There is no doubt that the fact that the war has come to Its crisis induces severe treatment. But why is it so? Are the real patriots fighting for their country? The whole people whom we know as Boers either APPLE WOMAN LEA VES $90,000. preted to Mr. Kruger, who was pleased with his reception. Mr. Kruger only replied in the hall of the hotel to the first address delivered by M. Thourel, president of the Marseilles committee who presented the traveler with a sym bolical bronze group entitled "The De fense of Home." Mr. Kruger's reply breathed the same determination to resist to the end as expressed in his speech at the landing Istage. He said the situation was terri ble for the Boer, but It was nowise ex tricable or definitive. They now appear ed to be crushed by numbers, but he was still firm In the hope 'Uhat the reign of the sword would ere long be overthrown by that of justice." Mr. Kruger received a great ovation from Iiis hearers. The only incident which .marred the harmony of the enthusiasm was the throwing of a number of coins among the crowd by guests of a hotel leading to the Boulevard as Mr. Kruger passed. The crowd thought they were thrown at Mr. Kruger and an uproar ensued, which necessitated the intervention of the police. There were no serious con sequences. Although the former president had re tired for a rest, the crowd still remain ed in front of the hotel and horse cars and carriages could only pass with the utmost difficulty. Much indignation was expressed at the hotel incident, as previously cabled. It now appears that the crowd called upon the party throwing sous from the balcony of the hotel to take off their hats as Mr. Kruger passed. But the seemingly plausible explanation was given that they were Englishmen, did not understand French and foolishly threw small coin into the crowd, which they had frequently done on similar oc casions in England. The Frenchmen misunderstood this and imagined that the sous were thrown insultingly at Mr. Kruger. Hence the tumult. The crowd endeavored to Invade the hotel and the (police prevented this. But the hotel (people were obliged to close their doors, and late this afternoon an unfriendly Her Will Filed for Probate In New York Yesterday. New York, Nov. 22. The will of Mary Kiernan, known as "Apple Mary," was filed for probate to-day. In the will she calls herself Mrs. Levi P. Morton. The will disposes of about $20,000, ail of which goes to Miss Cella Haffner of Brooklyn, a daugiter of an old friend of Miss Kiernan. Attorney Seeley in explaining "Apple Mary's" name said: "She came here when a very young girl, early in the 'twenties,' and had married married a man named Levi P. Morton, who per ished with their two daughters when the Henry Clay was wrecked at Forest Point in 1852. She was always known as Mrs. Horton and kept a little grocery shop on Cherry street." Li Hung Chang that the foreign pow ers must themselves punish the guilty officials." Washington, Nov. 22. The state de partment so far has heard nothing from Mr. Conger respecting the im passe reported to have been reached by the foreign ministers yesterday at Pe kin., In fact save a brief expression re specting the insufficiency of the pun ishments proposed by the Chinese gov ernment to be inflicted upon the re sponsible 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 upon impossible conditions In the negotia tions. An. interesting problem la suggested by the possibility, which to-day is al most a probability, that the ministers representing the powers at Pekin can not reach an agreement. It Russia, France and the United States should re fuse to accept the German idea, as sec onded by the British representative, very much would depend upon Japan and even some of the lesser powers represented at Pekin by ministers might have great power in swaying the proceedings of the council. The impression seems to be that if a ma jority of the. ministers or perhaps even one of the representatives of a great power withholds assent to the agree ment then the whole undertaking falls and there must be either fresh negotia tions directly between the home gov ernments in the effort to agree upon new bases of action, or the powers must, proceed to deal with the CMneee situation singly or In groups, the latter contingency having been provided for in the German-British agreement. ers, or are doing their level best to sur render. The people left in the field are either mercenaries ar bandits." Gen eral Buller quoted an Orange River col ony judge as saying that the moment when the men in the field ceased to be paid the war would end. IRON CAME TO LATE. How the Laugh Was Turned on German Critics of Buller. London, Nov. 22. General Buller, the former commander of the British troops In Natal, during the course of a speech which he made to-day at Exeter on the occasion of a sword of honor being presented to him, said he had received a quantity of old iron, sent by German critics, while trying to relieve Lady srnlth. He added: "The laugh was on my side because, when the Iron came, I was inside Ladysmith." There is an old saying in Germany "he should be thrown upon the old Iron heap," meaning that the person referred to is no good. It may be presumed that the sending of old Iron to General Buller by his German critics had ref erence to this saying. HEAVY BOER LOSSES REPORTED. MAKING SHOW OF FRENCH FLAG.

Forty-eight Honrs Overdue Owing to Itoiigh Weather and Loss of Propeller Blade Coal Trimmer Commits Suicide Vessel Stuck In the Mud In New York Bay Propeller Fouled Chain In Buck ing OIT. New York, Nov. 22. The great ex press steamer of the. North German Lloyds, the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, arrived to-day forty-eight hours over due, and, to add to her misfortunes, grounded near the Southwest Spit In the lower bay after passing in Sandy Hook. iThe Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse -left Cherbourg November 14 at 11:30 p. m., and arrived at the Sandy Hook light ship at 2:50 p. m. to-day, making the passage in seven days twenty hours and twenty minutes, with an averago speed of 16.22 knots. This is the slow est trip ever made by the steamer. The cause of her delay was primarily the stormy weather encountered through out the voyage. On the 16th at 8 p. m, one blade of the port propeller was lost and the engineers were obliged to slow the engines down to sixteen knots. On the 21st a coal trimmer named Knick jumped overboard and was lost He was a German about seventeen years of age. On rounding the South. west Spit the steamer, being under too much headway to turn the sharp angle of the channel, ran into the mud. Lat er in backing off she fouled a spar buoy and it is supposed that the chain wound about the propeller, as the vessel stop. ped and was unable to move. A diver's services will be used to-morrow to as certain the exact condition before any attempt Is made to move her. The Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse has on board 325 saloon, 328 second cabin and 673 steerage passengers. At 11:16 p. m. the steamer Wilhelm der Grosse arrived off the quarantine station on Staten Island and dropped her anchor folr the -night. The run from where she was aground was made very quickly. ' .

As the outcome of an attempt to arrest two Italians, Francis Pasquello and his brother Phil ip! of New Haven, Policeman Hurley was slashed at with a razor twice by Philipi, but escaped injury each time and later he succeeded in placing the men under arrest. Both men were proceeding to the de pot to take the 8:30 p. m. train for New Haven, when they got into an alterca tion with some other people, with the result that Francis drew his razor and slashed it around so vigorously, though not wounding anybody, that a stam pede resulted. In the meantime Police man John Hurley had been summoned, and when he appeared the Italians fled. The policeman started in pursuit, and as he was about to grasp Francis the latter drew the razor and made a slash for the policeman, but the latter drew away in time. Both brothers kept to gether and on the second occasion as the policeman had about .caught up the razor was drawn. The men finally hid in a barn in the rear of Hall, Elton & Co.'s factory, where they were at last captured. Owing to the critical condi tion of Philipi's wife he was permitted to return to New Haven late to-night, and about an hour later Francis was released under $100 bonds. The latter disclaimed having a razor, but one was found by some boys which, it is said, he , was seen to drop. Honors May be Conterred on Repre sentatives in America. Washington, Nov. 22.
