PaiLaperpaia, Jan 16, '
The usual slanderous article ap- |
peared again in “Items on the wing” |
on Sunday lsst. but as the writer j
thereof was arrested as a swindler |
last Wednesday, little notice was E
given to it. But the important ar-|
ticle was a so-called refutation to the |
articie that appeared in a prominent |
daily paper. The “Items on the |
wing” newsgatherer claims that his |
arrest was a case of mistaken identi
ty, but we are sorry to state that such
is not the case, as he was the indi
vidual wanted and was released on
his own recognizance. We are pre
pared to state that we do know per
sons whom he has reccived money
from in this his swindling plan and
we defy him to deny it. After such
an exposure it does not matter to the
public whose chsracter he tries toran
down, as it will only show that being
shown to the public as a swindler, his
only object will be to bring any one
that he can to a level with himself.
