BLODGETT THE BLUNDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
BLODGETT THE BLUNDERER. Alderman Blodgett Is taken as a shining example of Non-partlsanshlp. llje also exemplifies the party's knowledge of city affairs. The one or two blunders showing crass Ignorance in the city business which he has already made this year need not be recited at this time, but we will advert to the knowledge of the affairs of but one branch of the pity, that of the park department, In which he so glowingly shines? Of course, we do not expect that he. or other Non-partisans would delve into the different departments with the same thoroughness which one really interested in the city would show, for it is not the maxim (except It may be the use of a catchy phrase during a political campaign) of the Non-partisan party to do these thlnga Alderman Blodgett said, when he arose in his seat In the board on Tuesday evening to make the closing argument In the defence of Mr. Cox. that he had talked with Mr. Cox and he believed that his administration had been a particularly e...
SAVE THESE' PLUMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
SAVE THESE' PLUMS. The SENTINEL'S expose of the police commission scheme brought down the wrath of the people upon those who attempted to foist that unjust bill upon the city. We saw In it a plan to perpetuate in office the spoilsmen placed there by this administration. The schemists failed. Now comes an other one. A plan to hold In office other TOminees of this spoils-reward-ing mayor&gt;-This time an attempt Is made to save the assistant assessors. The statement made by the Tribune that these accessors would not pass any house occupied by a Non-partisan seems to have been too much of a temptation for President Steams of the common council. The movement to perpetuate in office these officials rewarded for political services, again comes from a representative of oil tured Cambridge. Mr. Steams would like to have the civil service commissioners place the appointment of assist ant assessors of this city within the classified service, If Mr. Steams believed that the public good...
COX FEARS INVESTIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
COX FEARS INVESTIGATION. The conduct of the Non-partisan member* of the board of aldermen In reconsidering their vote whereby a committee had been already appointed to Investigate the acts of Mr. Cox as park commissioner Jujtllies all fairminded people lv drawing bill one conclusion. The board Indicated by Its llrst vote to appoint a committee that It wanted to be fair and that if Mr. Cox had conducted his department In an efficient manner he would fe.ir no Invest'gallon, because by such a course he could be best vindicated. The board's action in appointing a com mlttee had the effect convincing those present that Alderman Harrington's attack on Mr. Cox must have had very little foundation, in fact, many or them left City Hall feeling that Mr. Cox's vindication and continuation would follow the investigation by this aldermiinic committee. Fortunately for Mr. Cox, however, a recess was declared. During this recess the Non-partisan aldermen must have been told by some one with Ihe kno...
PARTISANS CELEBRATE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
PARTISANS CELEBRATE. The best citizen is the one who will not only study the present, but also the past history of his country. The mistakes of the past can be avoided and the best of history can teach us much good. This title "partisans celebrate" does not refer to that famous McNamee banquet recently given by the .leffersonians, but to another celebration held by the partisans of 50 years ago. The Chronicle does much good by opening its volumes of 50 years ago 'because it teaches us the historical events of 1854. Last week's Chronicle, under its familiar heading of "This Week In Cambridge Fifty Years Ago." said; At the municipal election on Mop day the entire Whig, ticket was chosen The votes cast were as follows: For Mayor. Wards 1. 2. ft. T'l. Abraham Edwards...'l3ft .184 205 022 \Vm. L. Whitney... 103 240 180 520 ,T. A.

THE DEAL IS OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
THE DEAL IS OFF. This Is the language In which the Cambridge Tribune expresses the closing of the Cooliilge estate proposition. The words are suggestive thai there was something doing for somebody close to the powers thai be, and from what, we can hear, It looks as 1 hough somebody had lieen working for a good lump sum. We nre not sufficiently close to the scat of government and Its many workers to know whether this property had been secretly bonded or whether, without, this, an agreement was marie with someone handling the scheme that a minimum sum had been set at. which the heirs, would be satis fled. The original price asked for this property, as published In a Non-parti-san organ, wns J178.000. Failure to get this set the price at $1110,000, and Inability to procure this sum brought It. down to 1125,000, which was looked upon with favor by some, "One Nonpartisan paper does not hesitate to say it was a gigantic scheme to sink the city in debt by swindling it out of 1186,000. Ther...
APPLY AT THE JAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
APPLY AT THE JAIL. The wisdom of selecting overseers of the poor from the various sections of the city Is a proper one. Such an overseer is more familiar with the people of his district than would be one living in another section of the city. The greatest reason for this district selection is the one found by experience that to tho home of the overseer comes many an applicant for aid, either tor medical assistance, for fuel or for food '['his very reason demands the selection of a man. easily to be approached, and whose home is not so palatini as to prevent Ihe poor from making a call for help. We have nothing to say against Mr. John R. Fairbairn personally, but we believe he was the wrong man to select for an overseer of the poor. The Non-partisans of this year act as though no good can conn- from any suggestion made by a Democrat. It Is the same belief that In years gone hy induced them to appoint only Republ! cans lo the various boards of the city, because there was no Democrat c...
AGREE WITH CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
AGREE WITH CHRONICLE. The Chronicle In lis issue of March 12 commenting on Ihe charges mode by Alderman Harrington, closed - Its editorial In these words: "The board owes It to Itself to Investigate the charge made agnlnst an appointee." j*— We agree ytfith the Chronicle. Tho bonrd did the proper act In appointing n committee to investigate. They did wrong to aliollsli Hint committee after the members had been named. It was done without giving any reason nnd was n most uncommon act. It Is an act that we would look for in Republican Philadelphia where corruption holds full sway, but who would think that in Cambridge, under the pure govern ment of Non-partisanship elected on a platform of city above party, that such a course would he adopted'/ II Is another Instances where the Non-partisans have cast a reflection upon the good name of Cnmbrldge. They never should have confirmed Mr. Cox until an Investigation had been held. .Mr. Cox cannot claim his confirmation, under such circumstanc...
EVIDENCE OF PARTIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
EVIDENCE OF PARTIALITY. The action of the board of aldermen In allowing Mr. Oox to appeaT before them to defend himself against charges made calls back to mind two Instances In which this opportunity for, defemie was denied another official. When Mr. Shea's term of overseer of Ihe poor had expired and ail manner of false stories were circulated to defeat his re-election, a proposition was made, to invite Mr. Shea before the convention to be cross-examined at will, not to make a speech In his own defense, and this was not allowed him. When he was attacked In the common council last year by Mr. Elmore, even though he was present, he was not allowed to answer his false accuser, nor even to be allowed to answer questions. It 1b such discrimination as this that strengthens the cause of Democracy.
MR BLODGETT'S FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
MR BLODGETT'S FRIENDSHIP. Five weeks ago, when Alderman Harrlnglon moved that the confirmation of Mr. Cox be laid over for one week, it is said that Alderman Blodgett voted against this motion. If he did it shows clearly that he is a onesided man not willing to hear both sides of a question. We have been wondering why he should have so acted and learned that hi- was an appreciative man and that In addition to recognizing the injury that a failure to confirm might do to the Non-partisan cause, he had a personal regard for the man (the same Mr. Cox, who was the secretary for Mr. Blodgett's special campaign committee, when Mr. Blodgett tried to be elected to till the vacancy caused by the death of Alderman Howland. on which occasion he was defeated by ex-Alderman Edward B&gt;, .lames. If Mr. Coveney had this knowledge, md we believe he did. he should not have appointed Mr. Blodgett on the special committee to investigate the conduct of his friend, to whom he wns'polltically obl...
WHAT DID THEY HEAR? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
WHAT DID THEY HEAR? The answer to this question is eagerly sought by tt)e public. It refers to what information was given to the Nonpartisan aldermen after they had voted for. and the president had appointed, a committee to Investigate the official acts of Park Commissioner Cox. Whatever was the Information given out during the recess It caused the same aldermen to hastily recall the committee appointed to investigate the acts of George Howland'fox. .We have heard that Mr. Cox has said that he was glad that he wns. not'confirmed last Tuesday week since then- appeared to be some opposition at that time. Wo believe that Mr. Cox should have allowed his official acts to have been closely examined, especially if nothing COUld be found to prove nny of the chnrges. The sudden change In the attitude of the aldermen have led the public to believe that the acts of Mr. Cox could not stand Investigation, and that the aldermen were told so In so u,any words.
THE RELIGIOUS CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 March 1904
THE RELIGIOUS CHAMPION. There is no man in public life ,vho has brought religion into the politics of Cambridge as has Mr. John W. Coveney. He does this whenever it suits his purpose. In 1808. wheen General Champlin was seeking a nomination for mayor this same man caught on to the coat tail of William E, Doyle, then a candidate for mayor, and held a meeting of a secret organisation, and appealed to his kith and kin. but they were broader than Mr. Coveney. The latter sunk Mr. Doyle. His same harangue nearly cost McNamee his llrst election, almost lost him his second and Borne Non-partisans feel that he almost lost their cause last year. Mr Coveney acted very strangely on Tuesday. After considering Ihe subject for an entire week he then votes for a committee to Investigate, not the park commission of any one or more years, but the acts of Mr. Cox, a member of tho present board. A recess Is held and he reconsiders Ills vote whereby he voted to appoint this committee. He takes the lloor...
