WOLLAND MERCHANT TAILOR JUNEAU, ALASKA Star Man Eats Crow During the heat of the campaign in the Yukon the editor of the VVhitehorse Star said things about George Black, a candidate, rhat. he perhaps could not prove, and Black, who was defeated, demanded a public retraction and an apology, else he would take such pro j ceeding9 as the law provides in such , cases. White decided to apologize. What was worth doing was worth doing well ' and here is the way he did it: "To George Black, Esq., Dawson, "Dear sir: ? Not being a lawyer and, therefore, not able to conduct his own case in court, the editor of the Star hereby teuders to you his apology and retraction cf the offensive, 'Libel- ; ous and Criminal' assertions published in 'Said Newspaper' ou the 15th of January.

To iusure getting the right man you had better take a punch at the whole buuch. (If this can be con strued as an attempt to incite a riot, he j apologizes for it, too.; "Anyhow, the editor of the Star apologizes, retracts and hereby re quests his readers to expunge, wipe out from their blackboards or their think tanks, the 'Libelous and Criminal' statements contaiued in the issue of | 'said newspaper' of the 15th of January.
