Marseilles, Nov. 21!. Today's weath
er conditions were us favorable to the
celebration In honor of President Jeni
fers' nrrival as yesterday's were un
favorable and the delay In the arrival
f the Gelderlnnd was a fortunate dis
appointment. The Dutch cruiser was
tieen In the ofllng at T.ao o'clock, but.
the crowds had been made (skeptical
hy yesterday's fiasco and were not on
hand so early to greet her approach.
By 9.30 o'clock, however, when the ves
sel entered the harbor, the visitors
and townspeople were out hi force and
the streets and quays presented tin
animated scene. The decorations,
which had been taken down on ac
count of the storm, reappeared this
morning on the houses. The boer flair,
crossed with the French trl-color. pro
dominated. At the Jollclto landing
stage, the decorations were the mo-it
elaborate. The entrance tn the hotel
Noailles, where Kruger will stop, was
also ablaze with color. The Geld in
land doaked at 10.30 o'clock. The quay
was packed with people, the Boer dele
gates in the foreground joyously halt
ing the aged president of the republic
Whm Kruger apptared, the crowd
cheered madly and "Vive Kruger"
sounded In a steady roar.
On entering mo Harbor, the Gelucr
innd gave a salute of twenty-emu
guns and the light house batto'-y im
plied. Dr. Leyels and several of the
leading delegates embarked in a.
launch and greeted President Kruger
on board thu cruiser. At 10 o'clock
the launch was seen returning and the
crowd supposing that Kruger was
coming ashore, cheered the launch
loudly. It proved to bo Mr. Von Hum
mer, the president's interpreter, who
had come to tell the committee that
. Krugro would not .land till noon. The
committee represented that It had
waited already thirty hours and was
getting tired. So the interpieter re
turned to urge Kruger to hurry. Ho
finally landed at 10.43 o'clock and re
ceived a vociferous ovation. After
handshaking at the quay, the pollen
made a path to the carriages and
the procession started for the hotel.
The Boer president took tint leading
carriage and was elic-end lldl along
The following is the text of Mr.
Kruger's speech, on landing:

The war waged on us in the two republic!

The only Incident which marred the
harmony of tho onthuslusni was tlio
throwing of small coins among tho
crowd by guests of a hotel on tho
boulevard as Mr, Ktuger passed. Tho
crowd thought they wore thrown at
Mr. Kruger, and an uproar ensued,
S which necessitated tho Intervention of
the police. There wore no serious con
sequences. Much Indignation was expressed at
tho hotel Incident, us previously
cabled. It now appears that the crowd
called upon tho party throwing sous
from tho balcony to take off their hats
as Mr, Kruger passed, Hut thu seem
ingly plausible explanation was given
that they woro l-higJIshmon, did not
understand French, and foolishly
threw small coin Into the crowd, which
they had frequently done on similar
occasions in England. The French
men misunderstood this and imagined
tho sous were thrown Insultingly ut
Mr. Kruger, hence tho tumult.
Tho crowd endeavored to invade tho
hotel, und hu police prevented this.
"Hut tho hotel people were obliged to
Close their doors and late In tha day
un unfriendly mob was stationed be
fore the building, which was cordoned
After luncheon and a little repose
Mr. Kruger descended again to tho
hall of the hotel, where he received the
delegations. Kventually the effort be
coming too fatiguing, he asked that the
other addresses be presented to hint
In writing and then withdrew again
to his apartments, where ho passed
the evening quietly, receiving no oi.
Tho following message was read:
"I am fatigued and am In motirnlncr.
Moreover, 1 never attend banquet.
Otherwise I should have liked to spend
a few minutes with you and to thank
you. 1 shall never forget the warm
welcome I have had in your beautiful
city. Your reception of mo has sur

from the city which gave Franco her
admirable national hymn, that 'Mar

bottom of their hearts. I thank you
In their behalf.
"Could I have been with you I should
have expressed my thanks to all
France and would have raised my
glass In honor of her worthy presi
dent, M. J.oubet."
Dr. heyds then said: "In tho name,
of President Kruger I have the honor
to drink to the health of the president,
of the French republic."
Air. Kruger will leave for Paris at !t
o'clock tomorrow morning, remaining
one night en route at Dijon. A recep

ARTHUR SULLIVAN DEAD.
English Composer Expires Suddenly
in London Heart Disease the
Cause of Death.
By Ecluit Wiie from The Associated 1'ie-.-.
London, Xov. 22. Sir Arthur Sulli
van, the musical composer, died today
from heart disease. It occurred at 9
o'clock this morning. He was laugh

minutes before he died,
Ivater It became known that Sir Ar
thur Sullivan had beon ailing since
he returned from Switzerland, in the
middle of September last. Ho caughc
a chill there and his chest and lungs
became, affected. Ho took to his bed
a fortnight ago, but was' convalescing
and sitting up in his bed Just before
rthur Seymour Sullivan was hum in London
nn May 11, 1842. Ilk musical caicer was iictnm
tweho years latci, when he entered the choir
of the Chapel lto.i.il, Windsor, as a choikter. A
jeor liter he publkhed his first song, and was
fleeted the first Mendelsohn scholar. He studied

Stemd.ilc Bennett and O.. and in lS.jfi ucnt to

But it will be as a composer ot opera, and
especially of light opeia, that he will bo lies'

lit' takes suih an impoitaut place in musical hi'
lory, one with which (hat of t)nuhi'li m t'i'.mn
Jdune is compaiablc. As eaily an 1S07 he began
work in that line-, his (h-t attempt being (ho

followed in the same year ly "The Cimlm
bandlsti," a work which was icwritten siv cars
bro for l''rarcis Wilson and achieved onlv a mud
cute success under thu name ef "The Chlcltain."
In Ihil came a thin! and now almost, hngotten

made in thk country. It was a rewlition of
the possibilities wiilch lay in this foim ot amuse

succcsi-ful as the last) In 1SSI, "The Mikado" in
1SS3, "Huddigoru" in 17", "Tho Yeoman of the

The height ole xcellciioe ws re-ached In "The

decided merits, and "Tho fiondoller" especially
achieved considerable popuhiity, none of them

In the meantime Sullivan li.ul turned hN atten

his talent did not lie in that direction, and
neither of them had moro than a succes il'rstlme.
