FALSE TO PLEDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
FALSE TO PLEDGES. "There was a lot of talk and criticism of .Mayor McNamee's appointees Its assistant assessors last year, and the Chronicle was not struck with the selections which he made, as a whole. We are obliged to say the same this year as to Mayor Daly's appointments. As a bunch there is very little choice between those Mayor McNnmee selected and those of Mayor Daly's choosing. In both cases the men selected were named because of the assistance rendered In the previous campaigns. Several of those appointed by Mayor Daly were paid workers last December. There is no doubt If politics was left entirely out of the question that better men could have been found by either mayor. Hut both mayors are in the same boat as far as that Is concerned. Mere seems to be another Instance where city above party does not seem to be a very close lit." The above is an editorial from tbe Cambridge Chronicle, it Is nn awful arraignment of n party which nt the last election condemned Mayor McNnmee ...

"The Whigs, of Cambridge, will meet at Washington hall, next Friday evening to nominate candidates for municipal office and also to choose a city committee for the ensuing year."

THE CITY THE LOSER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
THE CITY THE LOSER. On lost Tuesday we had an opportunity to sec the work of two city employee* in the course of their work lv keeping the crossings clear on Massachusetts nvenuc between Central square nnd Dnnn street. A citizen stood with us nnd remarked was It fair fo the city to pay those two men the same rate of wages/ We admitted Hint we did not think thnt such treatment was Just. The citizen said that such treatment would have but one effect, -Hie mnn who wns doing the honest day's work would reason, nndwlth Justice, that If his conipnnlon would get f'J.IJO for such work be would do no more work than bis companion. We admitted that bis reasoning was sound, that one laggard would cleiiiornllze 1111 entire force. "How then," said be, "Is such a mini kept at work?"

ELMORE AGAIN STUMBLES. ~ Com,iclJmu n,.EJjimre, js, Jim,,secu-etjirj; of Hie Non-partisan political committee, He Is the mini fninoiiN to smile because of bis luck of being able to grasp figures. Al a recent meeting of the common council he Attempted to reply for Hie tlinnice committee to some questions as to the amount of money expended by the overseers of the poor during last year. If Mr. Elinors possessed v litle more modesty he would have replied Hint be could not answer Hie question and in doing this be would bnve been telling the truth, lint be noted ns though no one could correct biui even If he did not give the true answer to the question nnd In this be mnde his mistake.

LOOKS LIKE THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
LOOKS LIKE THE TRUTH. Tlie story Is going Ihe rounds that Mr. Sharpies, the inspector of milk ond vinegar, bud decided to appoint Louis F. Riihhvin as collector of samples, but Hint he was told by two Son-partisan nldermeu Hint be must appoint a white man to the place. This is an awful condition of affaire if it is true A review of tbe situation as taken from a Son-partisan paper, the Chronicle. Is well worth rending. "Although Dr. W. C, l.ane failed to receive v re-appointment as inspector of milk and vinegar, that does not necessarily mean that there will be no colored man connected with the department. For now that X. Wellington Abbott has been dismissed from his position as eollecioiof samples,lnspector Sharpies has practically decided upon the appointment of Louis F. Haldwln. of J7S Harvard street, the well-known col red real estate denier. Mr. Sharpies received a list of the eligible candidates for the position from the civil service commissioners.

NO TRUTH IN IT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
NO TRUTH IN IT. There Is no truth in tbe story Hint Is going (be rounds that Mr. Coveney bus apologized to the venerable and respected clerk of committees. John McDullle. for the unwarranted Insult Mr. Coveney hod hooped upon him ot a recent meeting of the committer on- finance, It wns one of the most detVgtllblO expressions ever benrd In n committee room nnd It certainly lowered Hie stnmlliig of Mr. Coveney. Mr. Coveney's best efforls should be used lv raising bis stiindlng rather Hum In lowering It, for heaven knows It Is low enough.
NEVER TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
NEVER TOO LATE. Mr. Coveney hns been In n few legislative bodies nnd social organizations. In the latter he has also held the presiding officer's chair. A man Should carefully study the laws of jiorlluniciitnry usages In order that be could do Justice to nil concerned. The high office of the choir demands thai the occupant should study the lows governing Its Haa- but us the present ncctipont of the cbulr seems to violate one of the essential rules, we give him (his advice freely. .Mr. Coveney, If you desire lo enter Into the debate of o question kindly leave the choir and call someone to it. Don't act as though no one else could govern that bod}. You probably think so, but no one else in the city agrees with you. It Is never 100 late to learn to do what Is proper.

HOPE IT ISN'T TRUE. We ho|H' the story Is not true that the Good Government League Is to invite Senator Mat Quay of Pennsylvoiiio to address its members, it is said that his sub cot Is to be, "The Plum Tree, HOW It Is fostered nnd who should get Its plums." We feor for Pennsylvania should this eeleliroled character come to Cambridge, for as badly as the Keystone State Is "governed we fear "that oVoli "Qiio.v" Could get points on the cultivation ami cure of the plum tree which would but Increase tbe evil reputation of the ruler of Pennsylvania polities.
LACK OF CONSIDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
LACK OF CONSIDERATION. Too many laws are passed and too many ordinances ore enacted by the city through the lack of proper consideration, other things of n personal nature push one side those of v public benefit This serious defect Is not always to be found In the man of limited education who is not supposed to carefully weigh bis every word. An example of hasty legislation which was broader in its scope than was the Intent of Its mover was the legislation known as the semicolon low. This slight mistake In punctuation has caused the loss of much money to the hotel keepers of Hoston and Considerable annoyance to guests of those houses. Alderman Blodgett is the lost one who would be Suspected ns to being guilty of giving any measure, much less on ordinance too little consideration, yet he is the very one who gave such careless consideration to an ordinance which be Intended to amend that if others ill the city government *hnd not discovered h|s error tbe driving of horses through our ...
WILL IT BE FULFILLED? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 March 1904
WILL IT BE FULFILLED? One of the hustlers agalnBt the reelection of Mayor McNamee, in the eastern end of the city, was George It. McGinnis. who made a personal plea, that he was not treated right by the administration. He was laid off by Mr. Shea when Hie work warranted the reduction of the force. He wns very bitter becousi 1 of his being laid off ami he paid back the score by personal appeals to vote for Mr. Duly. The SENTINEL understands that he bail told a certain party that he has been promised tbe position of truant officer and tills from the mayor himself, Thus far the schools of our city have been kept fairly clean of polities. We trust that the above statement is not true, but we nwalt to see where the said McGinnis Is placed before we make any further comment.

The merchants, of not only this city, but alsoof the townsinnl cities all over the country ore Justly Incensed nt what they consider the growing evil of the trading stamp, The legislature can go just so far In the matter and no farther. It would seem that the merchants could regulate the mutter by nil agreement among themselves nnd if anyone of them should break the agreement the public would soon know It If all the others held to theirs and the Injury thnt be would suffer In the public estimation would soon react to his detriment, It would seem to us to be a matter Hint in the end tbe uierchonts themselves will lie forced to regulate by agreements by and between themselves. Until something of tills sort is done there can be no filial settlement of the mutter. Tbe large attendance of remonstrants at the hearing before the board of aldermen on Tuesday evening, against the attaching of the wires of the Telephone company to the poles of the Electric Light company In this city, shows th...

MARKET LETTER. On Wednesday less business was transacted on the New York Exchange than on any full day with but one exception since Sept. 18, 11KKI, however, in spite of the great dullness,in New York and Boston, the stock market has shown much strength. In Boston, American Woolen Preferred, Massachusetts (las and I'lab have been particularly strong. A New York specialist on St. Paul says: "Personally I am a bull on St. Paul for a long pull, nnd believe eventually It will sell around $200 per share, and believe present dividends will be maintained, but meantime it would not surprise me If between now and election it sold down to 130." (In September, IIKI2, St. Paul sold as high as 11)8 3-4, and in August. 1908, as low as 133 1-4.) Many of the railroads are showing a great decrease in net earnings. In Peuna. there has been a constant selling of long stock among the small holders, who do not like the large additions to the capitalization. We believe the market is undoubtedly waiting f...
