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 ,
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. Owing to the fact that the ,
ground is covered with 9now as with a
mantle, biblically speaking, you will
please excuse the formality of the ed
itor ruboiug his nose lu the dust and
will take the statement of a willingness
to do t-o, were conditions favorable, for
| the deed. ,
"The statements you characterize 'ab
solutely false and without foundation'
were wired to the Star from Dawsou in ;
a telegram signed 'News' and you will
accommodate the editor of the Star if J
you will call at that scissors and paste i
i emporium and lick the Star correspon
dent. 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.
