In view of the statement made by Mrs. Hose Pastor Stokes In the courad of her testimony that "when twenty three years old th& romoved to New York and became tho editor of the Jewish Dally News," permit us to enter an emphatic denlnl of that statement. Mrs. 8toke.i was at na tlms editor of the Jewish Dally News, for some time. Mr a Htokes was a contributor' to the English depart ment of the Jewish Dally News, her particular work being In connection with the girts' department of that puge. Whatever Mrs. Stokes wrote at that time was In accordance with the pol icy of the Jewish Dally News: she, was very tamo thon. In justice to us It should be said that the Jew ish Dally News has always been dis tinctly American, and opposed to the vlewc now htdd by Mrs. Stokes and those who think with her. Mny we ask you to give the same prominence to our denial as was given to the false statement of Mrs. Stokes. 8ARASOHN & SON. Publishers. New York, Mny S2.
