ftiverting rates made known on 4 h t fiij5 lzca1iot- THI + i l survival of the whipping P9sL in the state of Delaware and therecerit flogging there of a iqur teenyearold boy for petty theft has aroused some discussion among the newspapers The New York speaks of it as a relic of jfarbarism while the Washingtpa post believes such punishment wIfebeatingIrepeated petty thett e ng and other hardened crime Hu mane methods have been tried and found wanting The brute goes to jail at the expense of honest hard working taxpayers fares sumptuously every day for some petty crime while his wretched family suffers both cold and hun ger and yet as soon as he is released from prison he will return with renewed intergy to his favorite crimes For such people we have always contended the whipping jost is the only adequate prescrip tion Such crimnals are open to na argument less eloquent than the lash They fear the lash as they fear nothing else and if that punishment were adopted and rigidly enforc gin every city town and county in ottr state the ends of Christian mercy would be better served 1THE SIGN AX wishes each and everyone of its n any subscribers a merry Xmas and a happy
