Pratt, acting chief of naval operations, autherlnd the ttatement at 3.4S thl� afternoon thnt the navy had received nd official information whatever of the tinning of an ^armiatice. Thia waa a denial of peraiatent report* that ha had given out such Information. SECRETARY BAKER DENIES REPORT Washington, Nov. 7.-In amwer to a queation at 4 p.m. aa to whether the war department had any confirmation of the report that the armlatice had been aiflned, Seoretary Baker aaid: "We have no confirmation. So far at the war department i* concerned we are wholly without confirmation on the subject and the information that we have it that the commiiiioneri, when we laat heard of them, were on their way to ffcershsl Foch*� headquartera and it would aeem hardly probable that tha meeting could have taken place at the time the announcement waa firat made. The minute the war department has any authoritative news on this subject. I will give it out at once.*' The tecretary** announcement came celebrating for two hours on the strength armiatie* terma had been accepted. In apite of the fact that officials did not accept tht- report as true, demonstrations persisted. President Wilson left the lunch table to see from the verandah what was going on outside nnd waved his napkin to the crowd before the White House gates. The state departm;nt waa advised that Gen, Foch would receive German envoys at 5 o'clock p.m. French time (noon eastern American time.). The unofficial reoorts which started the celebrations said the armistice had been signed at 11 o'clock French time or an hour before the time set for the meeting.

Beck, of New York, a member of the commission of the American Pilgrims at a luncheon given in his honor by an -executive committee of the Pilgrims. In New York bells were rung and whistles blown to celebrate the surrender of Austria-Hungary, but England, whose soldiers had defeated Turkey and achieved victory over the Prussian terror in France, remained silent m the hour of her triumph. REPORT UNFOUNDED. London, Nov. 7.^(6:40 p.m.: - {Associated Prass.>-The British foreign office this evening stated, according to the Excharge Telegraph Company, that the rumor that an armistice with Germany had been signed was unfounded.
