According to the freedictionary.com, a white lie is "a harmless or trivial lie, especially one told to avoid hurting someone's feelings". In the situations of O. Henry's play, While The Auto Waits, the lies that the characters made were simply harmless, but they weren't necessary told to avoid hurting someone's feelings.

In conclusion, I wouldn't exactly consider these as "white lies".
