editorial Globe Editorial - O. L. Anderson, Publisher. We ought to be pleased that our news items are good enough to be copied by the yard by our Everett contemporaries, but we are human enough to wish the fact acknowledged when the verbatim reports are made. One thing about this has impressed us as it has some of our readers. It is the boost of the daily that its news are fresh. It is only the antiqued weekly that serves its patron the stale dishes of a week ago. Under those circumstances to read in a daily what was told almost two weeks ago in the Globe, make one think that the tables are turned.
