Janitor LH'uison's Testimony Fully Corroborated. Mr*. Lease Calls a Georgia Beporter a Liar—The Latter Challenges Her Champion—Other Polit ical Matters. By the Associated Press.l New Yohk, Sept. 22.—The Herald's Albany correspondent says, in regard to Labor Commissioner Peck's case: The reliance of the prosecution is on burned fragments of paper taken from the fur nace. Some fragments are of the exact color, texture and print of tbe forms sent out by Peck's bureau to collect in formation for his tariff report. On some can be distinctly read the names of New York and Brooklyn firms engaged in the woolen and clothing business. The nature of the evidence on which the indictment is found is the same aa told in the dispatches tbe night Peck was arrested. Janitor Denison told again how, at the request of Steno grapher Rogers, he agreed to make a fire in this furnace and burn a lot of papers they bad stored in Peck's bath room. The packages were wrapped in manilla paper and marked with numbers in blue pencil. The janitor had no chance to scrutinize the papers, as Rogers stood over him. Peck watched closely while the papers were being re moved from tbe bathroom. Tbe janitor says Rogers said: "I dont want anyone to know about this. Do you think it will be known?" The janitor replied that he guessed not. The jailor farther said, while tbe pa pers were in the bathroom, Peck said to him: "William, if any one calls, tell him I'm out." After all the papers were in the fur nace, and ac Rogers was going up tbe stairs, he said: ''If any one comes now, it's all right, William, Mr. Peck will see them." Testimony of a corroborative nature as to tbe color and contents of tbe re turns used in makiDg up Peck's reports was given by clerks of the labor bureau. Their description of the blanks tallies exactly with that given by the janitor, of those he destroyed. The express man's description of the packages he carried to Peck's room, also corresponds.

Columbus, Ga., Sept. 22. —Daring a third party meeting here today, Mrs. Lease characterized the Atlanta Journal as a lying sheet, and its representative as a liar.

He Murdered His Babe and Beat His Aged Mother. MoKßisTowiJ, Pa., Sept. 22.—1n a frenzy of delirium, caused by typhoid fever, William Loch today cut the thront of Ilia 16-months'-old daughter, telling it as he did so that it would be an angel. He afterwards bathed his face in the blood of the child. The witnesses of the tragedy were powerless to prevent it. Tuesday last, while delirious, Lock, going to the room of his aged mother, began to beat her over the head aud shoulders with a club. Neighbors, at tracted by her screams, rushed in and overpowered the fanatic. The old lady was badly cut and bruised, and her arm broken in two places. The physicians fear she will not live long. A male nurse was then procured to watc'.i Lock, but the murderous instinct seemed to have left him. Last night, however, during the absence of the nurse, he, en tering the room occupied by his wife and two small children, seized the babe, and taking a razor from the mantle, he walked out again on the porch roof. Holding the child upj in the air, he cried: "If I cut your throat you'll be an RDgel, Jesus has commanded me to wash my face in your blood " The shrieks of th'> agonized mother aroused the household and the neigh bors, but they could not get to the porch in time to save tbe child. Lock cut its throat from ear to ear, then laying the bleedirjg form on tbe porch, he plunged his hands into the warm blood and washed his face in tbe crimson fluid. Lock was taken to jail, where be will be held to await the action of the author ities. CIVIL RIGHTS. MONGOLIANS HOLD A MAB9 MEET- ING AT COOPER UNION. They Demand Liberties Under tbe Con stitution Alice Same Mellcan, and Bitterly Denounce the Geary Bill. New York, Sept. 22.—A large audi ence gathered at Cooper union tonight at a mass meeting held under the auspices of the Chinese Civil Bights league of New York city, to protest against the Qeary bill. Wong Chin Foo called the meeting to order and intro duced a Chinese physician, Dr. Thorn, who spoke at length on the object of the meeting. The audience, he said, was invited to attend as lovers of fair play. The United States had violated its treaty stipulations with China, but the Chi nese are victims of both political parties. They have no votes. Any anti-Chinese measure will receive the support of either party. He said be lived for years under tbe government of China, but bad never seen personal liberty inter fered with. Who among his hearers would submit to such tyranny? How does the bill conform to the declaration of independence, which says all men are born free and equal ? Dr. William B. Derrick (colored). Wing Foo Chin, Rev. Gifford Nelson, of Brooklyn, and Rev. Dr. Baldwin spoke against the bill before David Curtis read resolutions which were adopted. They denounce the bill, and protest against the enforcement of the measure, and close as follows: "We, citizens of the United States, in mass meeting assem bled, do hereby resolve and declare that said bill is monstrous, inhuman and un constitutional, and we hereby pledge ourselves to support the protest against said bill which has been entered by the Chinese Civil Rights leagueof New York city." During the meeting copies of the Na tional Anti Chinese Journal, which is devoted to promulgate the existing evils and injuries caused by Chinese amongst us," were distributed in the corridors. Tbe police did not interfere, and the Chinese completely ignored it. AN EXPENSIVE LVXCBT. Lieutenant-General Underwood's Sine cure Abolished. Portland, Ore., Sept. 22. —'When the present term of office of Lieutenant-Gen eral Underwood expires next year, the army headquarters of the I. O. 0. F., witb all tbe military offices above those of department or will bo abolished, and each Patriarch Mili tant branch of the order will be placed under the control of the state encamp ment, within whose jurisdiction it is lo cated. This Action was taken by tbe Sovereign Grand lodge this afternoon, and was accomplished by adopting a re port submitted by a special committee appointed a year ago to investigate the "army headquarters" feature of the or der, and suggest as to whether it is any longer necessary. The committee found that the system has accomplished its mission and has become too expensive a luxury to be. borne by the chevaliers. It represents taxation without represen tation, and the arbitrary power bestowed by law upon those high in authority, and the court martial method of redress, are not in harmony with the principles of Odd Fellowship, all of which have become unnecessary with the removal of the cause that called them into being and have produced dis quiet, apathy and indifference, and in some quarters have awakened strong opposition to a system oi govern ment no longer necessary. A deter mined stand was made for a return to tbe former conditions and relationships, and less expensive methods given to other branches of the order, thus bring ing the civil and military subordinate bodies in closer touch and sympathy with each other, and lightening the bur dens that the present system necessarily entails. By "army headquarters" is meant the lieutenant-general, his office appointees, and special committees of the sovereign grand lodge, appointed to aid him in bis work. Its abolition will deprive the military branch of the order of much of its fuss and feathers, but will bring it closer to the non-uni formed organization. An Incendiary* Work. Moncton, N. 8., Sept. 22.—At Buc toucbe, 67 building's, houses and stores, were burned last night. Tbe fire is sup posed to have been incendiary. Twenty families were rendered homeless.

By the Associated Press.l Providence, R. 1., Sept. 22.—Most of the 40,000 persons who thronged the grounds of the Rhode Island state fair at Narragansett Pier, today, came to see Hal Pointer, sent to break the record.

The quarter was reached in 32>4, the half in 1:04, and everyone knew the record was safe that trip. From the half Pointer quickened his stride, coming the third quarter in 31*4, and tbe last, which was Btraigbt-away, in 31. About 30 minutes later he started again, this time getting a per fect send-off, every fraction of a miie showing accelerated speed. The runner was a length back and flashed past the quarter in 32 seconds. Tben Hal passed the half in 1:03. and the three-quarters in 1:34V0. Then the runner forged ahead, Pointer came up the stretch witb a magnificent burst of speed, (Jeers sitting as still as a statue. As Hal's nose reached the wire, a nrghty shout went up for hundreds of watches stopped at 2:05, some on the quarter, among them John Turner's at 2:04%. Up in the stand W. R. Allen and Mr. Hamlin caught it at 2 :05 1-5, and as the official timers agreed with this, Narragansett Park shares witb Washington park, Chicago, the honor of the fastest harness mile.
