Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Heyward's name into 'Heydude' in an item in the paper." Sometimes even a printed retraction didn't protect the editor from a vengeful reader. C. S. King, co-publisher of Og-den's Utah Daily Union, apologized in print on November 26, 1889, for a story he admitted was "false, untrue, libelous in every particular." But he added a paragraph that again inflamed Edward W. Exum, to wit: "The item to the effect that Mr. Exum had welcomed a new arrival to his home and hearthstone is also false." The result: Exum met the editor on a downtown street, shot him in the throat and then, as King ran, in the leg. King later avowed that his retraction had been written by Exum and the "blessed event" described in the final sentence was added with intent to irritate. Nevertheless, King survived to continue writing Union editorials 'til the paper's demise two years later. The editor didn't always come out second-best with irritated readers. Reporting on a Nephi incident in January, 1891, the Manti Home Sentinel wrote: "The editor of the Nephi Ensign (James H. Wallis) and the postmaster, Whitbeck, had a scrap on the 4th of this month. It would seem by the account given by the Ensign that Whitbeck wasn't in it at all." A Provo Enquirer writer evidently said the wrong thing about the wrong man in September, 1892, the Manti Times-Reporter revealed. "Mr. Clove, editor of the Enquirer, was whipped by Councilman Barney a few days ago for making an attack on that gentleman through the columns of the newspaper," read the brief Manti report. A founding member of Utah Press Association paid in bruises for an editorial opinion on November 29, 1893, the Park Record observed. "A. N. Rosenbaum, editor of the Logan Nation, was assaulted and roughly handled by G. W. Thatcher of that city," the Record recorded. It was the culmination of an ongoing verbal battle he'd carried on with Thatcher, once co-owner of the Journal and then owner of the community's Opera House, which Rosenbaum editorially urged citizens to boycott because it wouldn't advertise in the Nation. Worse, Thatcher was a candidate for Mayor and, needless to say, didn't have the endorsement of Rosenbaum's paper. Thatcher 270
