MARKET LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
MARKET LETTER. I'elligrew. Blight &amp; Co. say this week. There is complete stagnation in the stock market, not for many years has there lieen such a small amount of business transacted as on Thursday; neverthless we do not believe the present state of affairs can lasl for a much longer period. Money Is more plentiful and the circulation of $81.00 per capita is the largest in the history of the country. The public find nothing at the moment lv the situation to encourage buying. The decision of the Northern Securities case still hangs on the market, the disclosures 111 the Ship Building company are not forgotten, and now the Huston gas Investigation is attracting attention. in the Boston market there has been .spine Hide strength In I'tiih and American Woolen, I'fd.:- Mass, lias mid Copper Range were a bit weak, the former on account of the Investigation, the latter owing lo the unfavorable news regarding the strike nt Hie mines.

THE McNAMEE BANQUET. The banquet given by the Jefferson club In honor of Ex-Mayor John 11. H. McNamee was a notable event. The spo # ntaneouBoutpourlng of cltlsens to do him conclusively Ihat the ox-nH fcyo the hearts the PBBfctng tribute to one who has done so much * for the city as well ns his party, and It further shows that those who have followed his leadership during Ihe past three years still believe that he should not retire to private life but perhaps lie given higher honors In the future.
THE OFFICE DEMANDS IT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
THE OFFICE DEMANDS IT. We regret to note the Tact that the mayor has been ireter'red to In debate. in the common council, as a "dummy." The position of mayor demands our respect because he Is the servant of the people and was the choice of the majority who voted at the last election. It you cannot respect the individual, have a high sense of regard for the office. If the mayor must be alluded to In other than gentlemanly language let such words come from the Non-parti-san members who are so much disappointed in the choice they made for this high otttce. The councilman who was guilty of the offense mentioned did so because of his intense interest in a resolution presented by him on the evening or January 26th. The resolution was presented by Councilman Cronin and read that it was the sense of the members of the common council that the city employees now receiving $2.(K1 lier day should be given $2.25 per day. it was referred to the committee on finance, which committee reported inexp...
IN JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
IN JUSTICE. In a recent Issue of the SENTINEL we compared the Chronicle's estimation of Sergeant Pullen's conduct with that - of Chief Pullen's. We did not mesn to blame the present owners for this radical difference in views. The harsh criticism of Sergt, Pullen appeared In the Chronicle when not under the control of the present proprietors. Messrs. Seagrave and Bean. As some people have thought that the present owners were guilty of so radical a change we with pleasure correct this false Impression. /"N^
ONE ON ALDERMAN CLOSE [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
ONE ON ALDERMAN CLOSE "Alderman Close claims that his conscience underwent no change between Tuesday and Friday of last week and that he stated to no one whether he should or should not vote to license Inn-holders. He admits, however, that he believes all the inn-holders constantly violate the law, and says that he would vote to revoke-all their 11--clihses even now," If he could Ret a majority of tbe board to do so. We do not wish to do the gentleman any injustice, but his position seems to us n very strange one. He votes to license parties #&gt;horn he believes to be frauds, and his signature Is written with his own hand, upon their licenses."—Editorial In Chronicle, May 16, 1885. jj Our opinion or tbeabovc clipping Is that Alderman Close muitt have had a decide*! change In hlB opinion be tween the days mentioned. The cause of such change we do not know. We cannot understand how a man could call al] the men In n certain class as law-breakers and yet give them the very oppo...
THE LAWLESS INSTINCT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
THE LAWLESS INSTINCT. "More forcibly than elegantly states Attorney Jerome of New York City, be told our Chicago Merchants' ■Club, 'we've got to get the men' to work our city governments. Then he proceeded to nccounL-for the scarcityof goon men In public life. It dawned on lilin that the corruption of public life Is perfectly rational, because It is nothing but the reflection of commercial life. To this severe indictment the Chicago Tribune enters the pien of guilty for the 'prominent citizen' who bud always supposed himself lo be its client. 'Yes, Mr. Jerome was light.' tbundei-s the editor, suddenly becoming the tribune of the people. To the original Indictment it adds these counts against the 'prominent citizen of lawless instincts': "He 'creates the soot and smoke,' 'makes the stenches,' 'uses the sidewalks as a shipping yard,' 'steals laud from the street and liver,' 'grubs all he can for the car tracks without compensating the city.' 'owns most of the ore-traps and filthy tene...
SCORES THE "TRIBUNE." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
SCORES THE "TRIBUNE." The I'ress charges the Tribune with being such a partisan that even the bad acts of the party will receive its praise although the same act has previously been condemned by the editors. What, causes men to commit such acts? The desire to get money. It is the same desire that causes men to get money under false pretenses. Can It be that the Tribune is so anxious to get the patronage of the party that in order to secure it. all principle must be abandoned and the guru of hypocrisy must be donned: that the editors so fur forget their calling that they will write Contrary to their honest opinions? Another serious charge of the I'ress Is that the Tribune waits until it observes how the public sentiment Ik going. Ihen decides. Editors should not follow public opinion; they should mould it and lead the way to improved conditions. it really is amusing to read of editors condemning a measure, and yel praise a man for introducing the condemned measure . The cause tor suc...
"NOT A DIPLOMAT." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
"NOT A DIPLOMAT." "Ileforc election Mayor Daly wns criticised for 'be alleged weakness; now he Is equally severely criticised for bis Independence. Mi.ny of his official actions have been very displeasing to the majority of the public. We do not think Mr. Daly Is weak, nor unduly Independent. We think Hint nl heart he If n pretty straight, square sort of p man, and thnt he 1b honest nnd conscientious, nil must ndmlt, friondi) and enemies nllke. But he has made bad blunders, and they have ben exaggerated greatly by reason of the fact that the man has apparently no sense of dlplomncy; we think he has about the least of any man In public life we have ever met. He makes the bad mistake of thinking thnt city business Is his own business and not the public's. Many. or bis appointments are stamped with politics as dlscei'iiuble as were Mayor McNamee's, but the present mayor surrounds himself with nn air of apparent self-satlsfuctlon which makes him unapproachable, and renders him open to t...
OUR BEST WISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
OUR BEST WISHES. We compliment Miss Cedes and Mr. Lloyd, the publishers of the Cambridge Press, for the recent Improvements made in their paper. The city of Cambridge Is to be congratulated In having the Press under such management. They were honest In their Bupport of the .Non-partisan cause during the last election and they are honest In their condemnation of this party when It proves false-to lis battle-cry of "City above Party." We are pleased to see them so prosperous and the SENTINEL extends to them Its sincere wish that continued prosperity will attend their efforts.
FIFTY YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
FIFTY YEARS AGO. The Chronicle of last week, under their article ("This week in Cambridge Fifty Years Ago") teachei ub the methods of political practices of our earlier settlers. The article informs us that ihe Citi/.ens' party held a caucus and nominated candidates for the various offices. That the Whig party afterwards held a meeting to choose their candidates and It was attended by members of the Citizens' party who endeavored to have their candidates nominated by their political opponents, the Whigs. The resolution requesting those who had participated In and was committed to the nominations made at the Citizens' meeting to take no action in this meeting brought about a heated debate. "The resolution was carried, upon which some of the gentlemen referred to left the hall." Notice that not all, but only some left the hall. These some were dyed-ln-the-wool caucus packers. The example set by those men has been imitated by their successors. Utter our Republican friends attended the ...
"CHASERS." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
"CHASERS." We trust that the language of the Non-partisan members of the common council will take on a higher tone than that recently heard In the council chamber. A city that Is noted because of the absence of the saloon, cannot but cause our neighbors to doubt the success of the No-license policy, when one member tells another. If he desires a chaser to "go out and get It." Such language will Justify people to believe that our members of the lower branch must be adepts in the use of strong drink when In their aim to use a simile they - must resort to the drinking habits of society 1 . "Ho out and get It," would infer /that it was a common act; that it could be easily obtained, just as eaally as those places where the people license the saloons. Cambridge prides Itself upon Its no-saloon policy aud such play upon words is not helpful to our standing. First Non-partisan alderman take, casts a reflection upon the city by his police hill and now Nonpartisan Councilman Meyers flings an...
COUNCILMAN CASWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
COUNCILMAN CASWELL. This councilman has different views this year as to the tight of the council to Interfere wlt,h the executive than he hud last year, tast year his acts proved that ho believed the council had much to do with the mayor's business. He was then one of a small party to do all In their power to Interfere and handicap the executive powers of 'Mayor McNamee, the Democrat. This year he has said thai he thought the council had nothing to do with tho executive, Mayor Daly, a non-parti-san (?) Mr. Councilman, the legislative powers given you by our city charter, does not change because of the personality In the mayor's chair. We charge you nothing for'this advice, but. trust you will profit by It. We will give you one more bit of counsel which you should bear In mind. You are one of the head officials in perhups the greatest associationJn this country, tbe Young Men's Christian association. You can benefit or Injure that association by your manly or unmanly actions in tbe c...
"ALMOST OVER." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
"ALMOST OVER." These two words head an editorial in the Chronicle on the appointments to he made by the mayor. The Chronicle Is glad that the appointments are almost over.'" "Almost over." It 1b a 'term that Is used by physicians or even surgeons in the course of tlieir calling when a patient is suffering Interee pain. These two words are used by them to give the patient hope. In .ither words, "Don't despair, your sufferings will soon be over." It Is not Intended to inrer that the patients suflvrlng will only he relieved by death bifc even this would be hope to.aome psilents. Th* Chronicle uses a good similitude. Cam-" bridge has been upon the dissecting table. She has been operated upon by a surgeon who has had no experience In his calling (for Mayor Daly was never a member of the city eouhVIH. Her vital parts have been lacerated by the scalpel of a Non-partisan surgeon, and as she (urns and twists in the pain Ot such an operation, the Chronicle, an eye-witness, is moved through pi...
"THE COMIC COUNCIL" [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 March 1904
"THE COMIC COUNCIL" This is the term with which the Chnyilrlc brands the present common council. The paper has had two articles on the "Comic Council" both of which were severe criticisms of the men nnd measures Introduced by thy Non-partisan members. 1-ast week's article contained this language: "The 'comic council' fnirly outdid Itself nt its session Tuesday evening, and to the eyes of many who saw Its actions, fairly demonstrated Its incapacity to serve ns it co-ordlnnte brunch of the city government. ...,,■ One notable Instance of the failure of die members to show nny capacity for accomplishing the ends for which C ey professed to lie striving was the council's course in regard to Are escapes on the Merrill school." The article not only shows lack of knowledge of the routine work of legislation, but Ignorance of the rules of their own body and a desire not to have the president enforce the council rules. One Non-partisan member snld: "Mr. President. I hope you will not enforce ...
