IK THE dispatches have correctly re
ported Mr. Kustgard. his action in
making charges against citizens of -
Southeastern Aluska at Ketchikan.;
without either offering proof to sub
stantiate them or without retraction
and apology, is enexcusable. It is all
the more reprehensible because it fol
lows so mauy similar outbreaks and
a long series of insinuations and inucn
do that have involved the reputatlous
of scores of people of Southeastern Al
aska who have uot been given oppor
tunity to defend themselves.
The highest conception of the duties?,
of a prosecuting officer requires that (
he exercise the same character of zeal
in protecting the good names of citi- ]
zens from wrongful attack as he dis- ;
plays in the prosecution of those whom <
he believes have violated the law of i
the land. No prosecuting attorney has <
the right to make charges against men <
that amount to accusation of crime un- |
less he is ready to proceed against
A prosecuting attorney who is so
anxious to secure convictions that he
charges other officials and citizens
with stacking the cards on him in an
unlawful manner every time he is de
feated is a menace to a community.
The Empire has said not a little about i
the looseness of the manner in which (
newspapers and individuals sometimes |
accuse people of faithlessness. It is
even more abhorrent for a public offi- (
ciai?particularly for the legal adviser j
of other officers and a prosecutor?to
make such charges unless he is pre- i i
pared with the proof to substantiate
The law makes it libel for a news
paper to say that a man has committed
crime in the absence of his conviction.
While it may not be libel or slander
for a prosecuting attorney to attack
men. in the course of court proceed
ings. to the point of charging crime,
the same moral principle which caused
the people to make it unlawful for
newspapers to do it is involved.
EXPOSING A CONSPIRACY.
SENATOR JOHN W. KERN, of In
diana. the Democratic leader in
the United States Senate, is
credited with exposing the newspaper
conspiracy at the head of which is
William R. Hearst and John R. Mc
Lean. to discredit President Wilson
ind his Cabinet. Among other things,
he read to the Senate this telegram
from the Cincinnati Enquirer that was
sent to newspapers in Indiana, the
awners of which were personally
friendly to John R. McLean: *
"Please file early Friday eve
ning 300 words showing unfavor
able sentiment your section to
ward President Wilson's stand
on the Panama Canal tolls. In
terview big business men and get
them to say something hot."
Senator Kern said that similar tel
egrams were sent by Hearst newspap
ers to editors and publishers that
Hearst and his editors knew. The fa
vorable answers received were ex
changed and published simultaneously
In the eleven daily newspapers the two
men control, and in other papers that
they could induce to handle them.
