THE CUNNINGHAM MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
THE CUNNINGHAM MUDDLE. Mayor Daly little dreamed, evidently, when ht Usued his peremptory order removing Chief Cunningham from the head of the police department that he was involving himself and the administration in a series of entanglements which are likely to bring discredit on himself and his party. It is now very evident to the members of the Nonpartisan machine that since the mayor had to get rid of Chief Cunningham in order to satisfy the low, reckless longing for revenge which dominates the dictator and the Job getter, he would have retained the respect if not the sympathy of all fair-minded citizens. If he had taken up the task In a more diplomatic manner. But Mayor Daly did not prove equal to the occasion, hence the muddle which has fol owed his hasty, high-handed action. In the words of one who made an impartial analysis of -ie situation he has shown bad taste, had manners, and worse judgment. Nor is lack of experience any excuse for such a blunder. It did not need any ex...
WILL HE CAPITULATE? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
WILL HE CAPITULATE? ,e \on-pnrtlsniy machine is not contented with grabbing all the positions that are nnnual appointments and ousting from them competent officials to make room for party workers, but they are demanding even those places in control of executive hoards and arc threatening the removal of members of those boards who refuse to hand over to them the coveted salaried places The board of park commissioners is composed of two Democrats and one Bcpublican. Mr. Cox. Whose term expires this year, is said to have refused to go back unless the superintendent of park is removed, and it is understood that the removal of one of the Democrats is seriously considered by the mayor in order to place the department in control of the Nonpartisans. There Is also another version of the matter, it is Claimed that the objection is not so much because Messrs. L'onlin and Dwyer are Democrats and • «• appointed a Democrat superlntendenTfo it Is un..— — - — ollcs, and it is claimed in some quart...
THEN AND NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
THEN AND NOW. Last year, when any of the Ilemd- t cratlc members of the city council 1 voted with the Non-partUans It was i quiring nervous "propensities" at the i Democratic party and the "deserter" i was patted on the back and his j praises sounded far and near. c This year Is only along about six i weeks and there have already been 1 more breaks from the machine than 1 there were during the whole of last I year. Yet no one has thought ot look- j Ing at it as a breaking up of the ma- t chine. Indeed, some Non-partisan papers say it is eminently proper that I the Non-partisans should not be In ( accord on everything, and that inde- i pendent action nnd not machine con- i trol Is. what is needed. We think, how- i ever, that when a man so upright In &lt; politics as Alderman Carsteln Btated t that after a careful Investigation he I was unable to vote for Dr. Weeks. .' nothing but machine control could have foisted Weeks and Lynch on the ( city. However, the funny thing Is to ...
BOTH HAVE BEEN BUNCOED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
BOTH HAVE BEEN BUNCOED. i'he present administration is less than six weeks in operation, and Is now generally condemned, not only by the Democrats, but by Non-partisans as well. The newspapers have, in no Instance, given it but faint approval, and on cardinal points roundly criticised it. No one denies that there are many in this city Who believe In NonprrtDan ship in municipal affairs and who voted for it in the last election. They were honest in tlieir opposition to party rule and believed that the so-called Non-partisan leaders were honeßt In their declaration of "city berore party." They now realize that they have been deceived: that the spoils system was never berore so much to the fore as In this administration; that up to the present time the reward of party workers and removal of competent officials and replacing of Incompetent former employees has been the principle occupation of the mayor. They have also discovered that he has not a very great grasp of municipal problems a...
CAREFUL WHAT YOU SIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
CAREFUL WHAT YOU SIGN. The action of Mayor Daly In dealing with Dr. Ijine savors more of a tricky police court lawyer than it does of an honorable, responsible executive.' He first decides to put the doctor through an examination, the result of which docs not, prejudiced ns we think it Is— say he cannot make a correct analysis of milk, but. criticises the way he does It, and gives a gratuitous opinion on what the court might think of his testimony. Armed with this Important document the mayor sends for the doctor, reads It to him and says: "I cannot appoint you," and then demands his resignation and gets It After some reflection and deliberation, with his clerk he discovers that the resignation is not "legal," because he finds the doctor resigned something he did not have, and consequently could not resign. Forthwith, hs hurries his clerk to the doctor's bedside with another document for him to sign, telling him ths first wss irregular. Now we admit that It Or. Laos was 4s facts Ins...
THE TAXES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
THE TAXES. Already the prediction Is made that the tax rate will not be less than $IS.BO. The mayor is quoted as having said In East Cambridge that the taxes would be high, that last year the rate was tlfty cents les* than It should be, and would have to*pe J»ld this don't think his honor knows enough about finance_ to know what It really ought to be this year, let alone last year, but assuming that It was fifty cents too low last year and $17.40 and not $1(i.lHl was the true rate and that he lias goi to make up the. fifty cents left off this year, what reason is there for a tax rate in excess of $17.00 this year with a presumable increased valuation? ' Yet the mayor puts back on the city incompetent eraploytees, and in his campaign criticised the pensioning of retired officers and puts in place of a young, active, vigorous mini as chief of police a man practically broken down, and must soon go on the retired list at a big pension, which will be an added burden on the tax-payer. And...
GRAY. BROWN AND THE MA CHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
GRAY. BROWN AND THE MA CHINE. The erratic Inconsistency of .Mayor Daly's municipal "slaughter house" Indicates that the machine Is frequently without a controller, or that many are trying their hand at running It. Instances ot eccentricity are so numerous that we will content ourselves with mentioning, at this time, only two, which we think clearly illustrates the peculiar freaks to which tils honor and those who direct him are subject. We don't here mind the ract that they have repudiated their platrorm and Non-partisan promises; In fact, that they stand before the people as barefaced falslliers and deceivers. What we have in mind Is the treatment they have given Mr. Gray and ex-Superln-tendeut ot Streets Hrown. These officials were removed by the McNamee administration. The Non-partisans set up a great holler at the time. They contended that they were unjustly dealt with, and in Mr. Gray's case, that bis character was injured, and many other grevlances. real or Imaginary, were fon...

A REPLY. The following letter from the Secretary of the Good Government league was received this week: Cambridge, February 8, IPO4. Editor CAMBBIDGE SENTINEL. Dear Sir: I enclose clipping from your issue of February the sixth. In which you speak of the indorsement by this league of Alderman Lake. I also enclose the only reference made to his candidacy in our publications to date. Where Co yon find the "endorsement? As we stated a number of times last fall we did not endorse candidates. This Is also stated In the reports for the last year, a copy of which I enclose. Will yon not kindly correct the error? Yours truly, BOBERT WALtXITT. The editorial Is the one headed "Condemns Rushing Tactics" and In explaining why the SENTINEL made the statement that the league endorsed the alderman we would refer the genial secretary to the opening sentence In the annual report of the executive committee of the league, which Is as follows: "As Is well known, our league grew out of the Library Hall As...
NO LONGER A DEMOCRAT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
NO LONGER A DEMOCRAT. During ths host of ths lost ss_palis Mr. «evsssy avals ail sgata boasted from the platform that he was s good Democrat, that he would remain one all his life, and he qualified his statement by sjying that he was not a McNamee Demo rat. This was the plea which he made in order to secure the votes of Democracy. We regret to say that he received many of them. At the recent meeting of the Non-partisan politicians dur'ng which General Champlln was presented with a fob. Mr. Coveney announced that he would hereafter. In national politics, be Identified with the Republican party. party and principles never bothered Mr. Coveney. lie wns always found where Covenoy's interest* could, best be secured. His effort to secure his selfish ends has caused him to sev»r his ties of party. Mr. Coveney has now publicly forsaken the party which gave lii iii all he possesses, for without the opportunities given him by It. Mr. Coveney would have bpen a much poorer man. He would have be...
APPOINTMENTS AMOUNT TO NOTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
APPOINTMENTS AMOUNT TO NOTHING. The recent banquet of the Non-parti-san leaders has furnished the Democrats more good food for thought. .Mr. Coveney. who is sponsor for the party, told the gathering on that occasion: "The appointments do not make so much difference, but the financial consideration does." When his speech, which contained this remarkable statement was concluded. It met with hearty approval. The public can now .see the reason for such questionable appointments. The party in power believes in this doctrine. Tho public is Justified in such an opinion because the mayor who followed Mr. Coveney. gave his assent.to the latter's statement, by hla silence. The SEXTIXKL lias on more than one occasion said thai me Good Government League hnd a great missionary field in which to work, among its own members. The spirit of the past Mm jiiiijl-nti&lt; seeuis to have taken possession of the present Son-parti-sans. Appointments were or no concern then. Tor we have had embezzle...
THE CHRONICLE'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
THE CHRONICLE'S OPINION. The Chronicle of last week In an cdi torlal on the police department said: "The remarks of lihe chief have) added force, because they come from a man who. In all positions, has practised what he now preaches." We are surprised that the Chronicle would make such au assertion because that very paper, ns shown elsewhere, was most pronounced In its condemnation of the work of Chief Pullen when he was a sergeant. The reliance which the public places upon a newspaper editorial IS such as to demand that all editors should at least be careful as to the truth of Its editorial. We know of no article on the condition of the police force that was so strong In its condemnation as was the editorial in a former Issue of the Chronicle headed "Whitewash for Sale." That article did much to Improve the police department. We believe It was that very article which was put to such good use In the fall campaign of that year, that caused the people to give Mayor Fox a hoard of alde...
J. FULTON CUTTING A DISAPPOINTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
J. FULTON CUTTING A DISAPPOINTMENT. "The widely heralded lecture by Mr. H. Fulton Cutting, of Now York, at Saunders theatre. Monday night under the auspices of the Good Government league of Cambridge, was a disappointment. We believe this sentiment was general among the audience which heard him. The lecture was nothing such as was expected, ana we fall to see how Cambridge workers, or good government sympathizers, could get any great amount of enthusiasm from his presence among them, instead of being the festure of the evening, that honor certainly belongs to President Eliot, of Harvard, who was at his best snd simply delighted ths great audience. As for Mr. Cutting, he has a poor voles, a poor delivery, snd what hs amid waa not partiamarlv of interest ts •asshrMgS peoplt sr specially applicable to the political situation In this city, which was what the audience e ldeutly went expecting to hear." Chronicle. The SENTINEL last week asked this question In editorial "Was Mr. Cutting's ...
A CAMPAIGN PROMISE BROKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
A CAMPAIGN PROMISE BROKEN. The board of health came in ror very much criticism during the last campaign. The appointments or Drs. Sen nott and McGlrr were severdy crbl ised by the campaign managers and their removal for Inefficiency should have at least been attempted by this admin'stratlon. The Non-partisans laid so much stress upon the value of the health of the community that no other course was to be expected. What do we find? We find that Dr. Weeks who was elected b,y the &gt;'pii-partlSBns Sftt In his seat and did hot vote against the re-employment of these two officials. The Non-partisans must accept one of two horns of a dilemma, either they were not honest. In questioning the ability of these two doctors. In their appeal for votes, or that Dr. Weeks, who has come into official relations with these men. was not able to ills cover their inefficiency.
DEMANDS REMOVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
DEMANDS REMOVAL. It Is early in the year to have any one demand the removal of Superintendent, of Streets George M. GluttOS, but such an event has already taken place. If all reports from an authoritative source are true. The demand was made on the mayor, not by a Democrat, but by a Non-partlsan official. Councilman Sydney Monk, lie believes that Mr. tinkas is an inefficient official and Should be removed. The poor management of the snow has aroused the councilman's ire. Mr. Monk takes much interest In the city's affairs. He is a close observer of men and measures and does not hesitate to call a spade a spade. . The streets of Somerville are in a much cleaner condition than, our street*. Superintendent Pilchard is milking the railroad at least do its share of the cleaning, while at the same time the back streets of the city are being cleaned. This Is not the case In our city. The main avenues which are under the eye ot the public to a greater degree than the back streets are being g...
IS NOT NON-PARTISAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
IS NOT NON-PARTISAN. Practical Politics says: Whatever else may be said ot the new administration In Cambridge, after lis llrst qionth of official existence. It certainly Is not Non-partisan. That has been 111 evidence from the start, and there Is every reason to suppose. In view of what has oeen done thus fsr and is known to be planned for the riiture. that the administration's delinl Hon of Non-partisanship would lie synonymous with "anti-Democrat ir." or possibly with Rome word more explicit and applicable to anti-McNamee De mocracy specifically. The weight of this article ran be best appreciated when the public be comes aware of the fact that "Practical Politics" Is not a Democratic paper, but is owned and edited by Republicans. Republicans who condemn the sailing under a false flag, who believe that Republicans should stand by their colors and not abandon them for the spoils of offlce.
THE CHRONICLE ASKS [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
THE CHRONICLE ASKS "Why didn't the man who drafted the Cambridge police bill (creating commlsslonershlps with salaries of thousands of dollars) put It In on his own petition. Instead of getting Senator Rounds to take the responsibility?" The Chronicle seems to delight In showing up the deficiencies of Senator Rounds. This Is the second time the Chronicle has issued articles which show Mr. Rounds to he unsulted for the high position which he now holds. All these points go to prove that the high standard of previous senators Is notably lacking In the present Incum bent. The nrtlcle proves that Senator Rounds Is an easily led man. Of course. If chestnuts are too hot. we prefer to have someone pull them out of the (Ire. If yon are In such a predicament, call and see Senator Rounds.
POLITICS AND HYPOCRISY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
POLITICS AND HYPOCRISY. There Is no Held In which hypocrisy bos such a fertile growth as In the pasture of politics. The spirit to deceive Is fostered by one's activity In this game ns in no other way. The more clever the politician the more clever Is his deception. He can meet a bitter enemy and grasp him by the hand and give a supposed shake of friendship and yet In his heart at that very moment he is cherishing ths thought of hatred or malice toward that vary man. Is solltles it Is best Is—iftsd by the "glad hand bnt ths sssrVls Isort." I he recent Non-partisan banquet furnished us with many examples of this sort of man. The remarks of Mr. Coy eney concerning General Champlln WOTS mast Insulting to anyone conver sanl with the political definition of "glad hand." We would like to know liie inward feeling of that prince of glad hand men when lie presented the gift U&gt; G 'faT'Ch'ahi'pllir. and the latter's heart beats as he responded. The sentiments or the tongue and the h...
THE SACRED HEART REVIEW SAYS: [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 20 February 1904
THE SACRED HEART REVIEW SAYS: "We note with some stirrings of interest though the affair In Itself is inconsequent—that the Cambridge schoolboy who refused to take nis diploma last year from Mayor McNamee because the mayor was irißh.' has accepted It trom Mayor Daly. We wonder H he thinks our present mayor is any nearer the Mayflower than the former Incumbent." lie ia no nearer the Mayilowor. but be has freaks that appear to lead liim further from the Irish than the former Incumbent. The Non-partisans are up against a little snag in the order, giving the city laborers $2.2.", a day. The question is. shall they pass it in the board lv concurrence with the council and let it go to the mayor for a veto. It Is said that the mayor is opposed to it. as it would add another S'.Ti.ikiii to the budget, and Is'lleves the lioard should stand by the report or the finance committee, while it is claimed that some of the Nun partisans on the lioard think be ought to shoulder it. The Democrats have...
