The Fbaro*' Uetperate Effort to Break Down the Mew C.BH .Company. • The Pharos devotes a column to personal attack OD the editor of the Journal and even goes so far as to kiaa Dr. Battery's hand In an effort to defeat the new gaa company. The Pharos scheme is gauzy and the public long ago learned to know the deceit of that organ of the gas company. The silliness of the whole article Is disclosed when It is remembered that the editor of the Journal is not a director and that as many democrats as republicans favor the selection of some other president than Dr. Battery. As far as Dr. Hattery Is concerned the Journal Chas ^nothing against him personally, lie is doing allthe talking and all the fighting. The Journal is sorry to see him mak ing a personal matter of a business question and believes that he will realize his mistake in due time. TIic Octoeonarlan Foot Bace.
