Waski-;tvs, Oct. S. Confirmation of
the report that a decisive Kittle had taken
I'lace be:w.-een the -overnment forces and
those of the revoJiitiouarj- part t in Ver.ei
uela ktis no; receive! at the navy depart
ment until yesterday. Early in the mom
ins: a dis-xstch cam to Secretary Tracy
from Rear Admiral Walker. commandin;
the United State vessels in Venezuelan
waters, saying: -It is reported that an en
gajiement has taken place, resulting: in
total defeat of government and capture of
Veneinelan commander-in-chief near
Caracas. Revolutionists JP. occupy Cara
cas to-morrow." This message was dated
at I-a'.tuayra and came to the navy depart
ment twenty-four hours after it was filed.
Shortly after came another dispatch from
the admiral. This was also dated T-aGnayra
last nurht and read as follows: -President
and Venezuelan ministry have abandoned
Venezuela. Revolutionists successful."
-.Hose! Firing on Consul Hanna.
It will he noticed that neither of these
dispatches contains any mention of the re
port that the United States consul. Mr.
Hanna. was fired on by a Venezuelan war
ship while in the harbor of Macuto in his
napt ha launch; and because of this omis
sion and from the fact that neither Consul
Hannan or M inisterSeniirs has sent a state
ment of such an occurrence to the state
iepnrtment, it is believed in official circles
that the report is not true. An official of
Che navy department w hose position en
titles him to speak authcntatix-ely said to
Unite! Press reporter yesterday after
noon in reference to the matter that had
sny nsssuli lieen made on Consul Hanna
Admiral Walker would undoubtedly noti
fiei the navy department of the fact. He
said the small .cuns of the Chicago would
have been sniTieient to quickly silence the
I'ncle Sam Well Heeled at I-nCnayra.
The sKti' messages wore biid before the
cahiutt at its nievtiii!i" yesterday and the
report that Consul Hanna had been
attacked was also diseusse-.l. but in view of
the fact that 1:0 o:I:cial in formation con
corniii the reports! o:::r.'..-;e aicainst him
ami the fla.i had Ki n received the subject
was passed over xv;;hei:t ncfion. The
United States has two Vi-- -!. the Chicago
and the Kesrsaeo in the harlvr of 1 -a-Gnayra.
and another vessel the Concord
is within a day's sailing distance. The
Chicago and the Concord ar? two of the
new vessels end are thoroughly etjuij -pod
for warfare, so there is mdfear felt in offi
cial circles that the intcrvsts of this coun
try will not be Well protected.
NO FLAG ON FORT SUMTER.
It Is Abandoned and Couldn't Return
Washington. Oct. S. At the reccr.t
Grand Army encampment in this city an
enthusiastic veteran introduced a resolu
tion railing upon the secretary of war to
hoist an American ftaj; over Fort Sumter
in Charleston harlor. In the excitement of
the moment the resolution Jfl'cnt through
without opposition or investigation. At
the war licjnrmirnt the chief engineer I
who h.-is charge of th.e government fort ili-!
cations was iUCf.tio:ed on the subject. He
says the secretary of war has not yet com- :
plied with the resolution, nor is it likely j
thai be will. The army regulat ions pro- j
vide t'...it the Union Hag shall le displayed j
nt miilv i y posts and fortifications that an' j
j.-ii r:s.;,otl or oceupiea. lort Mimw is
neither garrisoned nor o-'eupied.
Volc!yn Complications flight Arise.
In further explanation of the non-appearance
of a f.ag at Fort Sumter and other
piaetically abandoned forts the engineer
c.flioers say that serious foreign complica
tions might arise if the resolution adopted
by the G. A. li. encampment were carried
out. For instance, if the flag was hoisted
over Fort Sumter a foreign warship might
visit the harbor of Charleston. In accord
ance with the naval regulations of the
world the foreign warship would salute t he
American flag and expect, a similar salute
in return. The foreigner could not be ex
pected to know that Fort Sumter was un
occupied and was simply floating its coun
try's flag as a matter of sent iment. Not
having his salute acknoxx ledged, the for
eigner would lie justified in charging this
country with discourtesy, and would have
a right' to demand an explanat ion.
Silver Seems To lie Slng;ih.
Washington, Oct. a "It looks as though
the people were losing confidence in silver,"
said Mr. Ijtvch, the director of the mint.
"The visible supply in New York is small,
and a large part of it is held by parties who
tiought when the price was high, and are
holding iiu to it. Our oflVrs here seem to
be decreasing, which would go to show a
reduced supply, and ought to show a higher
price. The price today, however, was as
low as Sll cents and 9 mills, and a few days
ago wns a shade lower. There has been a
decline of ulxmt 2 cents since Julyl. The
cause of this decline in price uud the lack of
confidence in silver npparcntly must be duo
to the diminished use of silver abroad, but
I cannot fully understand it."
Oil Mahini for Mrs. Harrison.
Washington, Oct. 8. One part of Mrs.
Harrison's treat me,i:t the post few days
which is thought to have a soothing and
restful effect is marv-sige with oil, a not in
frequent and generally successful method
of bringing back the strength to an enfee
bled constitution. It is especially useful
where the nervous symptoms are as mani
fest as in Mrs. Harrison's case. However,
the physicians report no material change
in their patient.

Pyer planned to get him out of the way.

Then the orchestra played "God Save the
