Ht'TTi.Dec. :tfl.-The nee^l of a wblp-^ping |s^st for abusive husbnnds becomes^e\er^ day more apparent in Butte. As^usual the great difficulty is that the wites^who appear in justices'courts with faces^black and blur, anil indignantly swear out^wanatits against their husbands, forgive^them befoie the case is brought up for^trial, so the sympathy of the judges and^policemen, neighisirs and new-papci re^^porters, is usually w a.-t'd. Therewas another wife boating case to^^day, ill fact : Ie re is one almost every day.^Khralteth Loos went befoie Judge Eddy^and swoie lo a complaint charging her^husband with threatening and abusing her^and di h ing her out of doors. Tbeislore^Loos, the husband, was arrested. I'he^family live- at 4-*^ Hopkins street. LemuelBatten, the sweet singer of Bit-^rat nriji who was urnstcd yesterday for^heating his wife, pleaded guilty lo the^charge. This no surprised Judge Eddy^that he took ^4 hours in which to render^his decision, and Batten meanwhile was^remanded lo jail. The usual course is for^the defendant in such a suit to plead not^guilty and move the w ife to tears by prom^^ises of reformation, so that she will not^ap|s .ir against him when the case comes upfur trial.
