Four Boy Thieves Lashed.

Church Pastor Administers Whipping at Hoquiam, Wash.

HOQUIAM, Wash., April 7. -- Four juvenile thieves received five lashes each upon their bare backs yesterday, the blows being administered by the Rev. T.T. Love, probation officer and pastor of the Lutheran Church.

The whipping took place with the consent of the parents in juvenile court chambers. The pastor made the lash of three willow wands bound with a leather thong. After each blow he held his watch for three minutes, giving the youths time to contemplate before the next application.
