COUNSEL BURBENDSBS HER THIS MORNING. lumpi Chnbbr and WelUDreeaed Her Grandmother and Several Wltneasea Tell a n-rronlac Title or Cruelty which Pin. fllolo Denies Dressed In Roy's Clothe and Bent to Bex In the Street. 1 Bix-yooj-old Lena MoHugh looked any. e thing but an illuscd and cruelly treated ohlld I OS sho eat next to her guardian, Mrs. Mary Molo, in Supreme Court Chambers this morning. , Her clieoka wero chubby and suffused with p healthy glow, and she looked like a well- I nourished and happy little girl. She was well and warmly dressed, hor outward garments " ' being a plaid ulster with a satin-lined cape, hnd a red Tarn o' Shantor cap. Sho was full pf fun and answered intelligently when Questioned. Little Lena is the bono of contention in habeas corpus proceedings by her grand mother, Mrs. Katherinn Ilupport, of 443 East . , Thirteenth street, a widow in hor soventy. I flrBt year. ' ller suit for tho possession of her grand- i daughter is based on allegations that Mrs. I Mole is keeping the child not for lovo of , , littlo Lena, but out of spite for hor rela tives: that she has porsistently ill-treated 1 tho girl and is teaching hor to lead a vicious I lifo. r She aocounts for tho child's prosporous op- I pearonce by saying that sho commencod pro ceedings two months ago and that since then Mrs.,Moble has for obvious reasons f od and clothed the child with great care. Tho opposing pnrtios sat in tho court-room half on uour beforo Judgo Barrett took his ! Seat and exchanged bitterly hostile glanoos. I Mrs. Mole had littlo Lena on her knee, and yos also accompanied by hor married daugh- tor Annie and hor counsel, Gabriel Levy. ; Tho other group consisted of old Mrs. j MoHugh, her married daughter. Mrs. Minnie i Toggl: her witnesses, Mrs. Ada Fullorton and I Mrs. Mary Jonos ; tho Hot. Theodore Leon. hard, of the De Witt Memorial. Church, of I Whoso church Mrs. McHugh is a member, and Lawyor F. A. Botty. Mr. Levy surrendered tho child to the court, and said his client courted tho fullest i investigation. Her answer to tho complaint t tr&s that Kirs. Ronhio McHuch. littlo Lena's '. mother, whon on hor death-bed at tho l'res- byterian Hospital June If) of this year, gavo Lena into Mrs. Molo's earo and besought tl fr nor to bring her up and not on any account to let tho child's grandmotboi or other rola- i tlves to get hold of hor. Mrs. Molo took tho 9 child out of friendship for tho mother, who i had been her neighbor for years, and was re- 7 oeiving no remuneration for her support. Sho I had treated the child with tho utmost kind- Hess and had never allowed hor to go hungry J or in want of clothing. i Sho said tho grandmother, Mrs. McHugh, J Was not a fit person to havo tho child, as she f was very old and infirm and had no incomo f, other than a pension of $12 per month from '- tho Government on account of her I Son, who diod in the civil war. Mrs. y MoHugh, she alleged, was loft in ohargo of 1 Lille, Katie and Ella, threo of Lena's sisters, F but sent them to an institution within a week f after thoir mother's death. f , Judgo Barrett Baid that tho statements of il the two women wero so conflicting that he t would make no ordor till the testimony of Doth sidos had bean fully taken. At his direction both parties retired to another !room and tho formal examination was begun. Old Mrs. MoHugh said sho had been trying for the past threo months to get Mrs. Molo to give up Lena. ThPlosttime sho went to tho house Mrs. Molo abused her and tried to in cite tho child to push hor down-stairs. Tho child at that time was in rags and looked ill led. Mrs. Ada Fullerton lives at 1382 Ninth avenue on tho floor below Mrs. Mole. She had known Mrs. Mole to beat tho child cmolly many times. Mrs. Molo wont away early in the morning and locked Lena in tho room without any Are or J Anything to eat. Once she got in a tompcr H because Lena sang about her mother. Sho pulled tho child's tongue out of her mouth si and stuck a noedlo into it till Lena screamed W with pain. ffi On Aug. 15, she heard Mrs. Molo tell the fa child to steal apples and onions from a N grocery near by. Tho child did so and Mrs. ra Mole took them. On anothor occasion Mrs. ;i Molo tricked Lena out in boys clothes and 51 Bont her round to bog. a. Mrs. Jones, another neighbor, corroborated !a these statements. N Mrs. Molo, who is a haTsh.featured woman B of forty-flvo years, said sho lived at 1332 m Ninth avonuo; and earned hor living by sow- El ing. She was married, but had separated B from hor husband. Sho laughingly ex- Wj plained the story about tho child begging in i boy's olothos. If "Lena got hold of a jaoket and an old pair k of trousors belonging to my littlo boy and j put thorn on in fnn. Then she went to the next floor, peeped into Mrs. Fullorton's j..; room and said : ' Please givo mo a penur.' ft it was all a pioco of child's m fun. Lena wanted to show how & clever she was and went to two X. pthor neighbors in tho same way. ThegTocor 9 was so pleased at the little girl's brightness 8 that ho gavo her fivo cents and Baid she Jfj lookod nuito a little man." Mrs. Mole denied that she ever ill-treated m or starved tho ohlld. Mrs. MoHugh's lawyer petitioned the u Court to pluco Lena in tho care of tho So- oiety for tho l'rovention of Cruelty to Ohil (Iron, ponding the final docieion, but Judgo Barrett rofusod tho application. Ho said lis saw no reason why tho child should not stay , whoro she is until the testimony is all takon.

While lbs Olaraber From ncbnjrlar la Itopa. full tha Dald Vaala la Uoiutrui 1'roni. lata and IXallrond Influenoo Outline of a Deal H'hlch May Carry Gen. Iluated Onco aioro to tho Chair This Winter. Mr. Fremont Colo, tho young Assombly man from Schuylor County, is making his canvass for tho Spoakorshlp from thla city. His headquarters aro at tho Fifth Avonuo Hotel, Ho Bold to-day that Ms ohanoos woro improving and that ho folt confident that ho would bo Speakor of the Assembly of 1888. When told that Gen. Jamos W. Husted was boasting that ho would wield tho gavel again young Mr. Colo smiled as he re marked; " Gon. Husted is always sure. Did you over know him to say that he would not be elected Speaker? He has boon disap pointed several tunes and I think he will be disappointed again." There 1b no doubt that young Mr. Cole is depending a great deal upon tho influenoo of ex-Senator Thomas 0. Flatt and tho Flatt machine to make him Speaker. The repre sentative from Bohuylor has tho pledged support of six or seven members of the last Assombly who havo beon re-oleoted and who are supporting him out of personal friendship. Then thero aro about a dozen members who think very favorably of him, but who aro not absolutely pledged to vote for him. A largo majority of the members of tho noxt House are keeping aulot on tho Speaker ship question. They prefer to bo clussed as doubtful and are not anxious to declare for any candidate. They are tho mon who wish to see who will oiler them tho best inducement in the mnko np of tho committees, and tho distribution of tho patronage of the Assembly. It is from this Held that Mr. Cole will have to draw votes. To get votes from such ho will hao to use machino influence and promises. His friends say that ho has already served three terms in the Legislature and is equal to tho emorgency. However, It must bo rcuiom bored that he is pitted againBt Gon. James W. Husted, who was an Assemblyman years beforo Mr. Colo was a votor. As a promisor Gon. Husted has no equal, and if Mr. Colo is depending upon promises, ho Bhould remem ber that liia opponent is a professional, whilo tho young statesman from Schuyler is as yet an amateur. Whilu Mr. Colo is hopeful, Gon. Husted is boastful. While Mr. Colo is depending upon ex-Senator Flatt, Gen. Husted's eye is on the iron rails that stretch from Forty-second Btrcet to Buffalo. Tho contest may ra solvo itself into a fight between Thomas 0. Flatt and Chauncey M. Dcpow. The sup porters of Gen. Husted say that ho will be nominated in tho caucus by acclamation. A well-known ltermblicnn politician from the interior of the Slate said last evening at the Gilsey House : " I think Gen. Hunted will be ro-elected by a deal. It would not surprise me to see Tom Flatt turn in for Husted. You see, Flatt wishes to control the ltepablican majority in the Senate Ho wishes to retain his grip there in order to contlnno his hold on tho Quarantine Commission. Now, suppose he needs tho help of tho Central road and the other influence that Husted can bring, who would bo Speaker? I can tell you this : Flatt does not care a red apple for tho Speakership. Up wishes to control tho Bepublican majority in tho Senate. The Speakership will depend a great deal on tho organization of the Senate. I am told that Colo ib frightened at some of the rumors ho has heard.'' Thero was no conforenoo of prominent Republicans at the Fifth Avonuo Hotel last evoning. A number of legislative Bepub lican pilgrims are expected in tho city in a day or two to compare notes. WARRANTS FOR IYES AND STAINER. Tho Arrests of the Ex-Flnnnclera to Do Honaht Next Week.

Tho general impression that tho decision of tho Court of Appeals will result in a " general jail delivery " of tho hoodlors is incorrect. Even Richard 8. Now combo, counsel for ox-AIdcrmau Jachno, finds no ground for bono for Juuhne. Ho said to a reportor for Tun Woni,n tills morning : ' Jaohne's caso is bottled forever, I sup. poso.

JohnB,Tonor,of Mr.Nuwconibo'Bofflco.con. suited with Assistant District-Attorney Nlcoll to-dnv, and seitlod certain points of differ ence between thorn as to tho appeal book and McQuade's appeal will bo argued boforo tho General Term in this city in January. It is claimed that tho decision of tho C ourt of Appeals virtually settles MoQundo's title to a now trial, for Justice Barrett's ruling ad. mitting tho ovidence regarding the solf-exilo of Molonoy, Do Lacy, Saylosand Kienan Is quite sovorely dealt within Judge l'eckhaui's concurring opinion on that point. Tho question was virtually bottled in tho decision of tho General Term writ ten by Justico Daniels in tho Shnrp motion fo-- a new trial. In it lie said thnt inasmuch as the testimony showing that those boodlors had Hod was ottered by tho Dibtrict-Attornoy "simply and only to show why theso men had not been callod to tho witness stand," it was not an error to admit it. In thn McQundo trial it was offered and admitted "in cor roboration of the story of Fnllgraff and Duffy," and Judge Feckhnm Buys that although tho " offer " of the prose cution " took tho sting out." still it was error to admit it even for tho first named purpose, and it is one of tho points in which tho judgment of Justico Barrett's court is revihid and a new trial ordered. John O'Noll's caso will bo argued on np- fienl to thn General Term on Doc. VI, mt tho hope of a favorable deci sion rests on other grounds, for although tho testimony regarding tho self oxilo of Moloney, Saylos, Krcnnn, Do Lnry and Co. wns offered anil given, no ex ception wns tnken bv O'Niiill's counsel, and therefore it cannot be used as a loer m the appeal.

FtTonnuno, Mass., Nov. 00. At an early hour thU morning, at a point botwoeu Fitch burg and LcominBtor, tho Raymond and Whitcomb vestibule excursion train from tho West crashed into tho rear of a freight train and but for tho prompt nnd decisive notion on tho part of tho baggage-master on tho ves tibule train a second freight train would have como crashing into tho excursionists' train from tho rear. Freight train No. 67 loft Athol early this morning with orders to run ahoad of "extra 37" toFitohburg, and thetu set off, that the extra which carrlod tho Raymond party might pass. Tho froight drew out from tho station about twelve minutes boforo tho vostibulo train arrived. Whon tho latter started from tho station most of tha passengers in tho six coaches woro soundly asleep. At tho end of about a mile run, when the train was speed ing along at about twenty milos an hour, Enginoor Richardson, whilo rounding a sharp curvo saw a man waving frantically across tho track n white flag. That not being a signal of danger, yet seeming rather an un usual occurrence in railroading, ho thought something must bo wrong, and he Blackened the train n trillo, and uono too soon, for just then tho curvo was rounded and on tho main down track, but a fow rods ahead, was a long, heavy freight train j list crawling along ovor tho frosty rails. Tho mnn at tho throttle blow the whistlo, put on tho air-brakes and rovcrsod his en- ino. This did not slacken tho train suf eiently to prevent tho collision, and, seeing it was Inevitable, both Engineer Riohardson and Fireman Dixon lumped, tho former laud ing on comparatively soft ground. Ho was not badly hurt, but llrcman Dixon received serious injuries. The ongino ploughed through tho cabooso and two ears loaded with cotton and kero sene The lmssengcrs woro well shaken up, somo being tossed from their beds. Mr. Joslyu, of Buffalo, a cattle drivor had sovorol ribs broken and received serious internal iujurits. Three freight cars, the passongor engines and conches were Boon ablazo, nnd woro en tirelv destroyed. NOHOI'EFOinHELAllOREnS. The Hnhwar Work to tin Closed for 'the Winter ThU Afternoon. Thero is now no hope for tho revocation of tho order of Gen. Newton closing tho subway trendies. Tho 1,000 hands remaining on the work will bo discharged to-night after the exenvntions aro closed. A great deal of distress is thus caused to a largo number of families, for it Is said that two-thirds of tho 5,000 laborers employed on tlio subways aro married men, somo witli six and eight children. Not moro than two or threo in such families nre solf-subtnining. Contractor Crimmins said to a Wonui ro portorlhat tho work had been stoppod by Gen. Newton's order and that no ono clso wos responsible. " I havo dono everything that I could, ond havo not beon at ull vacillating," bald Mr. Crimmins. Win n asked about Gon. Now ton's statement that Mr. Crimmins received 10 or IB per cent, on ovcry dollar expended for labor on tho subwny work, Mr. Crimmins answered: " That is my business." " Did Gen. Nowton refuse to seo you whon you called at his ofllco lately to consult with him about tho order I" was asked. "HobUit word that ho was engaged and could not bo seen at that time," said Mr. Crimmins. When told thnt Gon. Nowton said that ad ditional trenches might lo opened, Mr. Crim inous laughed significantly and convoyed the Impression that it wits ridiculous to entertain tlui matter. " Wo havo put all our machinery ond an. paratus intho yards," said he, "and wo could not now reopen tho work withous much loss of time and oxpenso. I am sorry to have my mon thrown out of work so summarily when wo thought'that we could go right along, ond the weather is so fawmiblo ; but lot tho re sponsibility rest where it belongs." Mavor Hewitt lias not been visitod by tho workmen's oommitteo appointed at tho Clarendon Hall meeting, lie says that ho has done all ho could and cannot do anything moro.
