WHIPPING-POSTS AGAIN, Private Board. Cigars STOVES. Efforts of Prominent New Yorkers in This Direction. What It Is Hoped to Accomplish Through Such a taw To Be Employed Only for Wife-Beaters and Brutal Thugs. New York proposes to -attempt to re- rive the system of corporal punish ment for certain classes of offenders. At least certain people in New York, led by Elbridge T. Gerry, will try to nave tne following1 made a law at the next session of the legislature: Whenever a male person shall be convicted of a felony consisting1 of or accompanied by the infliction of phys ical pain or suffering1 upon the person ol another, the court may, in its dis cretion, m addition to that penalty now prescribed by law, impose an ad ditional sentence of corporal punish ment to be inflicted upon the offender in the prison to which he shall be sen tenced. Such corporal punishment shall be inflicted in private in said prison, in the presence of the warden and suigeon thereof, who shall certify the fact to the court wherein it was imposed." Commodore Gerry is very much in earnest in the matter, and in an inter view with a reporter for the New York Recorder stoutly defended the plan on tne ground that it provided for the only punishment that is really feared by the brutes that it is intended to reach. "Crime," said he, "of the more brutal and fiendish character is frightfully on the increase, especially in the case where children of both sexes are the victims. Instances in which lifelong injuries have been inflicted on girls and boys of a tender age are becoming so numerous that it is time something was done to strike at the very root of evil, and I am sure the only weapon that can be effectively used against the brutes who, in their passions, exhibit no thought or feeling for their victims is the lash. "Once let the brutal element of the community know that the pain and suffering inflicted by them on others will be meted out on their own bodies and the shocking state of affairs now existing will be to a great extent wiped out. I am thankful to say that the creatures responsible for the of fenses are foreigners. The grade of crime against which the resolution is aimed is peculiar to men from other countries. And the only way to show these wretches that they cannot in dulge in such things in this continent is the crack and the sting of the lash. "It has been erroneously stated that wife-beaters are included among the creatures against whom we are fight ing. This is not so. We are only ad vocating the lash for felony committed j by men. Wife-beaters belong to an other class of animals which may or may not deserve a good thrashing. They, however, do not enter into the discussion. Burglary with violence, as sault of any brutal nature those are the offenders who. I maintain, should feel the sting of the lash. A conviction of twenty years, reduced by good be havior to twelve, has no salutary effect on the callous element with which I am dealing. "As an instance, you, a law-abiding, peaceful citizen, are enjoying a well earned rest; a hardened brute of a bur glar, not satisfied with plunder, delib erately knocks you over the head, puts your eye out, crushes in your skull, maims you, beats you, and for this he gets twenty years. Is that any satis faction to you? Do you get a new eye or another skull or a clean skin? No! Then I say let his punishment be pro portionate in some degree to the of fense. "Formerly crimes of which I specially speak were punishable by death. But experience showed that the class of people that commit these crimes of personal violence don't dread death. Nihilists, . anarchists, atheists and the more degraded classes scout the idea. Gorporal punishment is the only thing the scamps and rafcals are afraid of. A few years in prison doesn't have any deterrent effect. A man comes out of prison and he immediately perpetrates a similar crime, but if he understands that he is going to get a dose of that which he inflicts on other people, he thinks twice before he runs the risk. "It is nonsense to play the fool with criminals and say that corporal punish ment is degrading and a revival of the dark ages. Are the abuses inflicted on little children degrading? Was there anything in the dark ages more debas ing than the revolting acts which oc cur to-day? There seems to be a mawk ish sensibility in the opposition to cor poral punishment. It is the oldest form of punishment known, and it is to be found in the Mosaic law. There can be nothing brutal in it, provided yon don't make the exhibition public. In Delaware they have a curious meth od. A felon is sentenced to thirty lashes, fifteen of which are adminis tered. He is then told to get out of the state, and if he is found there after the lapse of a week the balance of the thirty lashes awaits him. The plan works admirably. "Again, in London, when the garrot ers were terrorizng the city, the cat-o'-nine-tails was brought into play with such effect that garroting was un known in a very short space of time.

Believed to Have Originated in the British Army Favored by Continental Officers. In every capital of Europe the mono cle is common enough, says the New York World. It attracts no attention on the street. In a row of men at a theater a considerable proportion are sure to have it. Perhaps half the offi cers in the Ger man army wear mono cles. They are seen in abundance at any meeting of the French academy. Even socialist deputies in France are not ashamed to go among their con stituents wearing them. A session of the English house of commons glitters with solitary eyeglasses. The single eyeglass is said to have originated among the officers of the British army. About the beginning of the century an order was issued that army officers should not wear eyeglasses or spec tacles. It was supposed that they gave the wearers an unmilitary appearance. The order caused severe inconvenience to many short-sighted officers, and one of them belonging to a crack regiment invented the single eyeglass; its use was no contravention of the order which prohibited spectacles and eye glasses. ' It soon became very popular in the army and was afterward adopted. On account probably of this origin the single eyeglass is very generally worn in Europe by army officers. It is by some thought to give an aspect of de termination and ferocity to the wearer, whereas eyeglasses lend an air of feebleness. PLANK INVEST- MENT.
