EXTRAVAGANCE THE ONLY RULE That Seems to Be Used [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
EXTRAVAGANCE THE ONLY RULE That Seems to Be Used In the Conduct of the State's Affairs Under the Present Regime at the State House. One of the chief questions in this campaign which every honest voter should answer satisfactorily for himself before he casts his ballot next Tuesday Is whether it is a wise policy to trust the party whlah is now In power in this state with further control of the tax levy and the handling of the finances for the people. To the great majority of the citizens who are wavering and who have their own interests in dollars and centß at heart there Is nothing which will appeal more surely and quickly than the matter of money. The paying of hard earned money into the coffers of an extravagant state makes even the most loyal Republican stop and think and Governor Bates will find that his high handed approval of needless expenditure of large sums is very much against the public's notion of aS&gt;uslness like administration, when the votes are counted next...
THE MAYOR EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS ON CAMBRIDGE PARTY PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
THE MAYOR EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS ON CAMBRIDGE PARTY PAPERS. He Tells Very Concisely the Needs of the Democrats in That Respect In This City and Complements the Sentlnal. To the Cambridge Sentinel Co.: Gentlemen: I am much pleased to learn that you are about to publish a new paper In Cambridge, to be devoted to the interests of the Democratic party. There seems to be at present an opidemlc of vilification and misrepresentation of Democratic officials In our city. This vilification and misrepresentation Is systematically and persistently followed through the columns of the numerous newspaper organs of the opposition. There is now no paper in Cambridge which seeks the support of Democrats or Is worthy of that support. The paper which loniw»ly we called our paper has become merely an instrument through which a.c expressed the personal disappointments and idiosyncracles of its editor. It Is no longer worthy of serious attention either as an opponent or an advocate. I am particularly rejoice...

ROUNDS' RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
ROUNDS' RECORD. Nothing In the campaign Just drawing to a close has been more amusing than the antics of William J. Rounds, the Republican candidate for senator. Mr. Rounds was a member of the house of representatives last year, and he represented a district overwhelmingly Republican, lie had no notion whatever that senatorial honors would ever be suggested as a fitting promotion for his loyalty to the principles and purpose of his party—at best not this year—so he was perfectly free to act on all measures from the standpoint of his party. Many important bills came up during the term affecting the plain people, but Mr. Rounds, entrenched in the Republican majority of his district, voted against those measures, confident that he was doing the will of his Republican constituents and that the day of reckoning on a larger scale, was not at hand. However, it came to pabs, at the last moment, that the senator from the district had somehow fallen from grace in his party, and an unexpected ...

OUR SALUTATORY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
OUR SALUTATORY. The reason why this paper is published is that there is a demand for it. We propose to preach Democratic doctrines to defend Democratic men and measures from unjustifiable criticism; to uphold the right and the truth; to attack and denounce wrong and error; to make interesting and entertaining reading for those who are interested in Cambridge and its people; to kep Cambridge, people informed about th doings of their public servants, the private acquaintances and the wants and things that make local news. In politics we propose to be partisans. We shall do all we can to keep the city government in the hands of Democrats; to encourage voting for Democratic state and national officers. We believe in the Democratic party. We dislike and distrust the Republican party. At the same time we shall try to be fair and honest with our political opponents. We shall not defend any official of our own party when he is in the wrong and we shall not dispraise any official of the othe...
McNAMEE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
McNAMEE. For years the Democratic party in the city of Cambridge was a dlsor ganlzed mass. Discord existed therein. It was rent with factions. At times there seemed to be not a particle of harmony. At other tlmtw, the forces would rally and a large num. ber of votes was secured, but not sufficient to bring about the desired end —victory. Attempts were made year In and year out, but they were all In vain. Out of the wilderness, and out of the darkness, came a loader, a bold, a dashing, a daring, and a valiant knight, and he "said, "Follow me and I will lead yon to victory!" And they most of them with a faint, heart, little realizing that victory would come, but victory did come; or at least, a partial victory. This valiant knight, who flashed his sword In the face of the enemy, was elected the chief magistrate of tl.e city. Some said the victory was accidental, and last year the forces lined up on both sides, and this fearless champion led the way for the Democratic forces, and It wa...
PARTY DIFFERENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
PARTY DIFFERENCES. Last year tlhe Democratic party in Cambridge achieved one of the moat memorable victories that has ever been been won In a municipality in this Commonwealth. Not only was great Interest manifested In this city, but throughout the whole Commonwealth, and even beyond Its borders, people Impatiently watched and waited for the outcome. Although tihe Democratic party did not get full and complete control of the city government, yet it elected its mayor and its board of aldermen, and that is as much as it expected. We may say the victory for the Democratic party was complete, and the weeping and gnashing of teeth was confined within the camp of Its opponents, while great was the joy within the Democratic party. It has been said that most of us can stand misfortune, but that few can stand success. Sayings as these are guide-posts to tell us the way In which we should travel. If we profit not by Oiem, we yield not to reason. We sacrifice the teachings of the past. We foug...
THE MERCENARY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
THE MERCENARY. What a work is the building up of a great political party! What courage Is required for Its undertaking, what energy for Its accomplishment! For years more than 5000 democratic voters of the city of Cambridge had stood uncovered before the doors of that temple of bigotry known as Library hail (peace to It* ashes), to humbly acknowledge as a gracious boost th» most trifling recognition in ths form of an endorsement for this or that candidate for the office of alderman Or councilman. Ths majority was the tail to the kite, and the minority was the kite. The lodge room and the church sociable usurped the functions of the public caucus. The few dominated the many In the selection of candidates for public office. From districts wholly democratic a candidate wearing the label of democracy but least acceptable to a majority of the electorate of the district, was occasionally taken up, O. K.'J by Library hall, and with tnat endorsement, went Into the local fight In the distric...
THE SLOP-OVER METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
THE SLOP-OVER METHOD. Alderman Bell was loud In his denunciations of the street department Tuesday night, this time criticising the superintendent of streets relative to matters of accounting. A little Retrospection, not Into very ancient history, may convince Alderman Bell that It Is quite possible he Is getting rapidly Into that condition and situation where in homely language a man Is said to have "slopped over." It Is to be regretted that the superintendent of streets should be perpetually subjected to a scandalous system of persecution, a system secretly planned and hatched out at nonpartisan head tuarters and In nonpartisan parlor gatherings where "dirty Democrats" are never permitted to congregate. In their vain attempt to discredit tne splendid administration of Superintendent of Streets John T. Shea, the non-partisans hope to wreck the local Democracy. The hope Is a vain one. The non-partisans (ought to trick the Democrats Into permitting a hostile committee of common counc...
MAYOR McNAMEE'S POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
MAYOR McNAMEE'S POSITION. Mayor McNamee. during the campaign of 1901-1902, stated many times his position on the tax question in the city of Cambridge. Claim was made and proved that the method of assessing taxes then in vogue was not just; that some of our citizens were taxed for a great deal less than what their property was worth in the market, and others were taxed to the full value that they could possibly obtain even at an amicable sale. The mayor defined the districts In which he felt there should be a raise In values made. He also made the statement that he felt there was not a single toot of land In Cambridge that were over-valued, while there were hundreds of pieces that were undervalued. There has been good proof that his words were true, in the fact that the city of Cambridge has sold a piece of marshland down In one of the lowest spots near the river front for a great deal more than what It was taxed for. This Is probably one of the most undesirable spots In the city, a...
THE PASSING OF COUNCILMAN SHEA. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
THE PASSING OF COUNCILMAN SHEA. Michael J. Shea, member of the common council from ward four was elected last year as a Democratl. He deserted his parly In March to vote for J. T. Donovan for assessor. The reason he gave for '"he desertion was that Donovan was his personal friend and he would stick to him to the end. Whatever his reason he was received by the non-partisans with open arms' and after bolting the Democratic caucus voted with the non-partisans the remainder of the year. There was no more lpyal or consistent or obldent non-partisan than Councilman Shea. He expected and hoped nor a reward of some kind. A nomination for alderman would have suited him very well. He was sure he would get this much when It appeared that bis friend Donovan had . sacrificed ' bis standing with the Democrats, was the boss of the party with which be had allied himself Well, the non-partisan "committee" held, a meeting Wednesday to select candidates for the board of aldermen? Presumably Donovan wa...
