THE WIFE BEATERS.
And Their New PttnisTiment Sheriffs
Office has Visions of First
Over at the sheriffs office there
is some speculation over the things
that may develop in that vicinity
as a result ot the law requiring
wife beaters to be whipped. The
office has good . reason to believe
that wife beating is going on in
this town to a limited extent. The
new law makes it encumbent on
the sheriff to administer 20 lashes
to the husband, in case ..of a " con
viction. In case the wifecomes out
victorious in the family scrimmage,
mere is no provision lor ner to .-De

are several husbands in town, ,'iyha

The new law provides for the
whipping to- be done inside the
county jail. '.' It used to be done
publicly. - The convicted prisoner
was tied to. the post, and stripped
to the waist. ? The officer applied
vigorously a whip having a number
of crackers. The swish of thecatwas
frequently foUowed by bleeding back
for the prisoner. In the new law
there is provision for jurisdiction,
not only for circuit courts, buf for
justices of the peace. The first

-. Innocence No Long- '
Washington, Feb. 14. The New
York World-today, prints the fol
lowing editorial heaedd. ''The In
nocent Mitchell:" . '"
"It was not many weeks ago that '
the indictad ' Senator -Mitchell, of
Oregon, with tears streaming from
his eyes, ' defended himself before
the United $tates Senate on charg
es made by the federal grand jury.
It seemed impossible for any human .
being to ba more innocent than ;
Mitchell appeared to be while he;
was delivering - this apostrophe to '
his own guiltlessness. 1 Now a
ruthless government has made pub
lic a letter written by .Mitchell to
his law partner,- Judge Tanner, in
which the senator practically m-
etructed Tanner how to testify be
fore the grand jury. These illum
inating postscripts were attached
to this bit of correspondence:

Ihe NewJ York Evening Post
saya editorially: ..
in nis lone public career has en
joyed a number of opportunities of
exonerating himself, is now facing
another. His law partner has turn
ed state's evidence. One . of the
documents upon which Mitchell re
lied for defense was an agreement,
presumably signed March 5, 1901,
by which Mitchell was to share
none of the returns from the land
office business of the firm. This
compact according to the confes
sion of Tanner, was not signed un
til December, after Mitchell's name
had already been involved in the
land scandals. There is also a
lengthy and interesting letter in
which Mitchell states to Tanner
'facts' as Mitchell wishesthem t
be understood, and as Mitchell
hopes Tanner will remember them.
"This epistle, like others famous
in political history, contains sever
al postscripts the last one, 'Buri
this, without fail.' Mitchell i
simply under indictment; he has
not yet been tried and convicted.
However pained he may be by these
various disclosures, he can hardly
be surprised that his tearful protes
totions of innocence are received
. The Washington Times today
.rints the following editorial wMcii
accurately reflects public sentiment
at the national capital:
"Congressman Williamson, of
Oregon, is the latest to join the ar
my of distinguished indicted. Mr.
Williamson has paid to the circum
stances the deference of retiring
from his accustomed seat. This i
a wholy proper move, and Repre
sentative Htruaann, of the. same
state, would be benefited were some
good friend to impress this truth
upon him. The fact that a man i
indicted does not argue that he is
guilty, but that his demonstration
of the fact of innocence is due and
seemly. Until this has resulted,
the role of modesty is mcst becom
ing. There have been immense land
frauds. .The names of senators and
representatives have been mixed
up in these. . It would be a sadden
ing revelation that any in public
office had been so untrue to the peo
ple, but, if there is guilt, the de
mand is that it be pointed out and
nobody spared. Meanwhile the
verdict be withheld. But mean
while also, Ihe persons accused will
excite reprobation if they insist up
on ignoring the indictment return
ed against them and treating the
matter as though nobody cared." .
