Representative I-H.' Adams, for ex
ample, is of the opinion that the wife
beatera ojo not get ell that la oomlng
to them;,Jhne Mr. Beverldge It afraid
that the pew plan would prove a eource
of family aupport among a certain class
. ef people. Moat of the others Inter
viewed on the subject, however, are of
- the opinion that auch a law would- be
a good thing provided it was hedged
around with limitations s'uf flolent ' to
- keep out any chance of fraud or burden
' to the counties.
"I am afraid from what I have heard
ef the movement," said Representative
" Beverldge, "that we would be inviting
trouble for ourselves should we pass
such a lsw. It 'appears to me that some
ef the Illiterate daaaea would rather
beat their wlvee and thua allow them
to earn tl a day while they lived off
the eounty than they would to get out
and make an honeat living in the first
place. I am afraid that we would have
wife beating . cases every once la a
while.- ,- .1. .

e Representative V. C Burns la Of an
ppoalte opinion. "If tha law were
paased and the officers would make the
wife beaters earn the dollar a day and
their board besides, so- that the eounty

Senator B. C. Beach thinks the whipping-post
law a good one, and should
be enforced.' "I think the whlppHig is
good medicine," said. tha senator, "and
aa far as I am informed at this tlms
would not be in favor of repealing the
law now In force."
Senator N. . Whealdon of The Dallee
ia In - favor ef the law proposed by
Webater. and thlnka such. a plan would
be a good thing and worthy of tha sen
oua consideration of the legislature,
"We don't whip 'em enough.". is. the
stand taken by Representative L. H.
Adams. THe holds that the whipping'
poat Is a deterrent to- wlfebeaters, and
thlnka the courts should enforce the
law now on the books.
The Journal secured Interviews with
the Multnomah county circuit court
Judges, whose duty or privilege It is
to impose the whlpplng-post penalty.
XndeTe. Traaefe Ideas..:
"My opinion of the whlpplng-post
law," said Judge : Fraxer, . "la beat. ex
pressed, by. my own. acta. In sentencing
two wlfebeatera to be whipped. And
they were whipped.' I am of the opin
ion that, while it ie brutal,, it baa had
a good affect, t have been informed
that threats by tha abused wife that she
would have her husband whipped have
made more than one man- of that elaaa
more, careful what he did. The whlp-
phig-post ia simply a penalty which is
imposed at the discretion ot the eourt
It is an additional power. As to the
other plan, I doubt Its practicability,
tor experience hae proved that when a
man la sent to Jail or to the peniten
tiary' it - costs more to keep him than
hla labor ie worth. Money paid hla
family would not - represent hla earn
Inge, for he would be earning nothing.'
Judge Seara aald that In hla opinion
the law la all right now.
"Of eouree" said he. "It Is "right lhat
the time a man putt in should be de
voted to the support of hie family, but
there are so few cases of wtfebeattng
that I aee no eapeelal reason for chang
ing the law."
Judge Cleland aald that tie did not
know how the preaent law eould be Im
"I don't believe it- haa been in force
long enough for any one to form an in
telligent opinion as to its efficiency. I
don't know what is better to do than
to give it a real trial." .
Judge Gantsnbeln expressed the opin
ion that the whlpplng-post law Is sim
ply an addition to the powers of the cir
cuit Judge, and with It he la able more
than formerly to make the punlahment

' New Tsrk, Nov,-W.The eaclusive
ennouncement this morning that Sena
tor Thomas C Piatt, owing to his grow
ing physical infirmities, recent marital
troubles and othsr causes, would- re
sign hie seat In the United States sen
ate on January I. was confirmed by
the senator today In a telegram sent to
E. H. Butler, proprietor of the Buffalo
Evening News, the organ of the party
in the weatern end of the etate.
In- his telegram, which was printed
in the News, Senator Piatt said:
"Question of resifoaUoa I will dis
ci" hereafter. Am not considering it
It waa pointed out today that en ac
count of hla antipathy to Governor
Hlgaina, Senator Piatt would taks ne
step looking to resigning until Illgglns
retires from office. That la what his
telegram means. Some of his best
friends have urged him to resign at
once and -withdraw - from- tlto-tttrmolt,
but the aged senator haa ". stubbornly
refused. He agreed te eult on January
1, when the legislature oould move to
elect his successor, but he ebsolately
refused to take a step that would per
mit Oovemor Illgglns to appoint his
Woat Bsefjra to Xlgglas.
One of the first official papers that
wttteome - into the hands orTJover'nof
Hughes after be le sworn In will be
the resignation of the aenlor senator
from the state of New York. Should
Piatt eend In his resignation now Illg
glns could appoint a successor to serve
until the legislature could elect It is
a foregone conclusion that he would
name one of his satellites, a men so
Appointed would have an Inestimable
advantage over any. other candidate for
the place. Inasmuch as be would be In
possession and have the prestige of ap
pointment If there' ahould be e dead
lock or a prolonged fight 'it le not In
conceivable that a man eo appointed
might aerve for quite a little' time.
The reaaone for Senator PIstt's bitter
fooling toward Governor Hlgglne ere
well enough known. If there were al
most any ether man In the ehalr la
Albany outside of Hlgglne the resigna
tion of Senator Piatt would have gone
