THE NEW BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 2 April 1887
THE NEW BRIDGE. The Boston Herald does not exactly op* pose the project of building a new bridge across Charles River between Boston and Cambridge, but it takes pretty strong ground in favor of compelling Cambridge to pay a large proportion of the expense thereof. About two thirds or three quarters of the money should come from this side of the river, according to the Herald, for the reason, as that journal alleges, that the matter is by far more important to Cambridge than to Boston. We do not agree to this, and trust that no such division of the cost will be made. Nearly the whole of Middlesex County is behind Cambridge in the matter of the proposed avenue, and Middlesex Comity Is vastly important to Boston in various ways. Anything which will facilitate travel between the two localities will be found immensely for the benefit of both. The enterprising merchants of Boston understand this, as is evidenced by the names of those petitioning. When Jordan, Marsh &amp; Co., Shep...
Equal Representation. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 2 April 1887
Equal Representation. If Senator Alger of this city is correctly reported he is entirely mistaken wheu he says that the call for an act to secure the equal representation of wards in the Board of Aldermen is asked for by only one ward in this city. At least three of the five wards of Cambridge were represented at the hearing of this subject. There seems really but one side to the matter. All that is asked for is that each ward shall be sure of two aldermen. This is what all voters profess to want when the nominations and elections take place. Why not. then, make it sure": A certain sort of politicians do not want it, but it is fair and right and ought to be adopted.

The price, silii.issi. to be paid for ike property, is considered quite low.

Tbe old station used by the company before tbe one now occupied was built, and which for a long time has been rented for business purposes, has Is-en removed.
