The Register this week states that the Courier is trying to read the Register out of the party because "it would not play second fiddle to it." No one need fear that the Courier can succeed. The Register couldn't be kicked out. After the Courier had trampled all over it and the republican convention had jeered at its views, the Register feebly gets its fiddle into position and chimes in with the Courier's tune. It seems a little strange that the Times should come out with a long editorial pleading for the waterworks company at the same time that au advertisement of the company appears in its columns. It also sccms a little strange that the waterworks company should break over its policy of not advertising and advertise for more water consumers at the same time that they strictly forbid the using of hydrants except between the hours of 6 and 8. And it leads to the inquiry, are the Times editorial columns indirectly for sale?
