KRUGER IN PARIS. A BLUNDER AT THE STATION* The reception of Mr. Kruger in Paris was a success, in a French sense, so far as enthusiasm was conoerned, but it did not pass off quite so smoothly as the multitude had hoped. To begin with, the train shot past the reception saloon, and consequently there was a somewhat undigni- fied rush to the other end of the platform. The cheering was terrific. When Mr. Kruger and his friends had descended, M. Crozier, of the Protocol, bade him welcome. The ex-President having re- plied, was next button-holed by M. Grdbauval, Preaident of the Municipal Council, who de- livered a speech of welcome, in which he said that PARIS DETESTED OPPRESSION, and had herself combatted and overthrown it. Mr. Kruger's reply was very brief. Clearly he was tired, and his face gladdened when the procession headed for the carriage. He took his departure amid a scene of great disorder. Mr. Kruger was welcomed at the hotel by an address in Dutch, a bouquet, and the Dutch hymn. For several hours afterwards there was a continual stream of delega- tions, and late in the afternoon Mr. Kruger, ac- 3ompanied by Colonel Meaux Saint Marc, of Presi- dent Loubet's military household, left his hotel, and went to CALL ON THE PRESIDENT, the carriage proceeding by the way of the Champs i'Eljs^es in order to avoid passing the British Embassy. An hour later President Loubet re- turned the visit. This having practically ended the ex-President's day's work, he sought a little rest. But more delegations came, among them Mias Maud Gonne, who, however, was told by Dr. Leyds that Mr. Kruger was tired, and was not risible to anyone. This reply was also given to Prince Henry of Orleans. SUNDAY SPENT IN QUIET. It was impossible for Mr. Kruger to spend Sun- day in strict accordance with the Dopper faith, for the reason that there was no Dutcm church bandy. But he did the next best thing-he held a service in his drawing-room at the Hotel Scribe. He himself read a chapter from the Bible and one of the Boer delegates undertook to read a sermon. The ex-President, who years ago got over his dislike to musical instruments in church worship, expressed a wish that they might have a harmonium, but the desire could not be gratified, and so the singing was unaccompanied. After the service Mr. Kruger kept to his room, reading his Bible, and declining to see anyone. He snubbed several importunate photographers by sending word to them that he could not consent to be photographed on a Sunday of all days.
