CRESPO IS IN POWER.
The Fact Is Officially Confirmed in a
Dispatch From Walker.
LOS TEQUES BATTLE SETTLES IT.
vi United States Consul Is Fired at Ij a
YENEZUEU AND PEOPLE DESCRIBED
"WASimrGTOs-, Oct. 7. A. dispatch from
Admiral Walker to the Ifavy Department
confirms the reported victory of Crespo in
Venezuela; announces that the present
Government has fallen, and that General
Crespo will soon be at the head of the new
Government The dispatch of Admiral
Walker said in substance:
"Revolutionists successful. Crespo vic
torious. President and Ministry have
abandoned Venezuela. Crespo takes pos
session of Caracas to-day."
From this dispatch it will be seen that the
next probable step will be the announce
ment ot a new Government, with General
Crespo at the head of affairs.
An unofficial dispatch from La Guayra
via Uew York says United States Consul
Philip C Hanna has been fired at from the
puns ot a Venezuela war ship while on a
visit to Macuto in a private boat. Fortun
ately the United States consular repre
sentative was not struck. Whether the
firing was an intentional insult to the
American fla; remains to be seen. M&cuto
has been the scene of several sanguinary
engagements which have ended in the de
test of the Government forces.
THE PORT OF LA GUAYRA.
Wlint a Dispatch Correspondent Saw Wlien

Relj on the United States Tor Protection.
The Dispatch received yesterday the
following telegram from a special corre
spondent in Venezuela, descriptive of the
country, inhabitants and customs, which is
ot interest at the present time:
On approaching La Guayra, the port of
Caracas, from the north, at a distance of 40
miles or more, one sees a dark outliue
above the horizon which gives the impres
sion of land, but should one suggest this
idea he or she would promptly be contra
dicted by at least one-half of those present.
Nevertheless all doubt is soon removed, ior
within an hour or so you are near enough
to see high mountains in front and on both
At the foot of these mountains La Guayra
lies in port. At the foot is a small beach
upon which the principal part of the town
is built. From the sea La Guayra has the
appearance ot an amphitheater, with the
bright spots made up ot dillereut colored
houses, tsurmounted by flags of various na
tions. Some ot these designate Consulates;
others are overpnvate houses whose owners
still claim citizenship in the mother coun
try. All have the same meaning, however,
and woe to the revolutionist who dares to
maltreat one of the occupants, for in the.
harbor we see numerous men-of-war, whose
forces have combined tor mutual protection,
and at a signal lroin anv Consulate are pre
pared to send armed boats' crews to right
What One rinds on Leaving Ship.
On landing we met the usual crowd of
wharimen, most of them jabbering like so
many parrots in the Spanish tongue as
spoken in South American countries. But
a few steps and we cross a railroad, this,
with telephones, iorming the connection
link with the capital. The railroad, bv the
way, is 22 miles in length, following an old
wagon road, winding in and around the
mountains to Caracas, 3,500 feet above the
sea. Jt is said that there is not a straight
rail in its entire length, and one readily be
lieves that when he knows the distance is
eight miles ocr the mountains.' There is a
fair wagon road direct, and the drive may
be made in three hours, while considerable
freight is packed over on burros still,
though the two hours by rail is quicker and
Now we enter the train propor.. passing a
plaza in which is a crowd of soldiers the
Indians of the country being in the ranks,
and a sorry looking lot they arc Brown,
dirty, wearing a uniform that was once
mhite. but now having a color harmonizing
more nearly with their complexions. The
streets are narrow and crooked, as in all
Spanish tonus, with one or two notable ex
ceptions, the stores are dark and dirty, with
an indescribable odor from a combination of
garlic, with some one or more of a hundred
smiling things. But when you visit the
clubs you find it cool and pleasant, with the
daily papers and numerous illustrated ones
of other countries.
A Very Considerate Bonldcr.
Suddenly you come upon a large rock,
weighing hundred of tons, surmounted by a
green cross, and are told that in the near
past it came crashing down the mountain
side to stop at this point for no apparent
reason. A grateful public erected tne cross
a an expression ot thanks for not taking
the rest of the town in its path. Of course,
you wish to visit the bull ring, and ascend
the hill to your right, enter a rickety, open
building of a circular lorm.
The only place one may not visit is the
fort on the top of the lull and commanding
the harbor. Entrance to this it impossible,
and one can only form an opinion ot its use
fulness from outside appearances; and as
you see broken walis, with an old-lashioued
cannon protruding here and there, this de
cision must be far from complimentary to
the Government. Strange to say, the na
tives think this fort cannot bedestroyed.
They also think that in case it were bom
barded by any European power, the United
States would interfere. At the same time
their opinion of Americans at present is
'way, below par."
Arms Carried by the Xatlve Troops.
Toe soldiers carry rifles of all descrip
tions from the old-tashioned muBket to the
modern Lee magazine rifle, but none are
without the "machela," a long fcnite simi
lar to one the butchers use, with which most
of the fighting is done.
Passing through the side streets you see
children up to the age of 10 clothed only in
a thin covering of air, while those having
passed that age wear only what is indis-
The harbor is protected br a breakwater
of about one-fourth of a mile in length, to
which steamers may moor. Before the rev
olution the port was verv busy likewise
the railroad and as freight is charged for
ut the rate of 51 per ton to Caracas, one is
prepared to hear that a dividend of 5 per
cent per month is paid.

A MODEL LOCOMOTIVE.
The Pennsylvania Itoad Experiment With
a New Engine.
One of the largest locomotives ever used
on the Pennsylvania lines was at the head
of the Western express when it arrived at
the Union station yesterday morning. It
was built at Schenectady, S. Y., for the
company, and yesterday made its trial trip.
If the test comes up to the promise made by
the manufacturers, a number of such en

The locomotive has ten wheels on each,
side, six drivers, each 2 feet 6 inches high.
It weighs altogether 136,000 pounds. The

Another System In Signaling; Adopted PT
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
It is the. intention of the Pennsylvania
Eailroad to place a system of interlocking
signals all through the road. At present
the company is erecting a power house in
the vicinity of Holmesbarg Junction, near
Philadelphia, to furnish power to the new
$1,000,000 system which they mean to put in.
Already the automatic system of signaling
is nsed between this citv and Wall station,
but the new departure, while similar in de
tail, is somewhat of a slight improvement
It is operated by the wheels of the loco
motive as it passes along over the rail. Two
wires are plsced along each rail. These are
connected with signals which are oonnected
by the current the moment the wheel of the
engine touches it
The new system is being introduced for
the purpose ot reducing accident It not
only gives warning of approaching trains,
but tells their exaot location within fwo
blocks ahead and behind it.
