A DESPERATE ATTEMPT BY THE NON-PARTISANS To Swell the New Voting List [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 14 November 1903
A DESPERATE ATTEMPT BY THE NON-PARTISANS To Swell the New Voting List By the Addition of Harvard Students—Some Very Peculiar Results and Answers Before the Registrars of Voters. That the Non-Partisan Municipal party leaders will stoop to anything in their frantic endeavors to defeat the present administration and return themselves to-power at city hall has been fully shown the present week in tbe personal solicitation of non-resi-dent Harvard students to register and "Redeem ths city from the temporary lapse into machine politices and the spoils system which the present socalled Democratic administration of Mayor McNamee ha* brought about" That the self-styled leaders have over-shot the mark and committed another blunder which self-respecting citizens, irrespective of party, will very strongly resent, has been manifest even to the minds of those who created the "blunder," to call It by no harsher name. During the latter part of the past week and early In this week, the following let...

NON-PARTISANSHIP IS A FAILURE SO SAYS JOSEPH HOWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 14 November 1903
NON-PARTISANSHIP IS A FAILURE SO SAYS JOSEPH HOWARD. Whenever it Is Applied tbe Trimmers "Are of No Particular Credit to Themselves or Anybody Else."; The result of the election in New York has called forth many comments, but ncne so striking as those that come from the pen of that long experienced journalist, Joe Howard. Mr. Howard in his letter to the Boston Sunday Globe en the situation in New York, haa struck the keynote of the campaign here in this city. Mr. Howard Well says: "The man who stands on tliie fence ready to jump or fall on the side which he hopes will best benefit ntmself Is not only liable to make a mistake but 1b certain to be despised by those he deserts and suspected by those whom he joins." We have had men In the' Democratic party in exactly this position during all their political career. They were always successful, however, in keeping their masks from being torn from them and their real position shown under the full glare of publicity. They have used the Dem...

NON-PARTISANSHIP EXPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 14 November 1903
NON-PARTISANSHIP EXPOSED. If any one believes that great benefit accrues to a municipality from nonpartisanship, let blm read tbe ljllqwing editorial from tbe Boston Daily . Advertiser, a leading Republican paper of this state. It was published , last year, and was entitled "No 'Cltl- , zens' Movement.' " It is as follows: "This talk of a 'citizens' candidate' , against Mayor Collins next year Is In- , tsrestlng gossip, and that Is all. Tbe Republicans, of course, will nominate a candidate. That Is natural. If he keeps on another year as satisfactorily as during the one just closing Mr. Col- ■ lfns will be re-elected, because he has been an excellent mayor, and this is a Democratic city. The Republicans have no especial need to espouse a . 'citizens' movement." It sometimes' elects a mayor, but that mayor is . never satisfactory, and the inevitable ' result Is a worse period of boss rule. The election of Seth Low in New York . is probably tbe most expensive luxury the citizens of th...
THE BURDEN SHIFTED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 14 November 1903
THE BURDEN SHIFTED. t There was a time when people ques- i tloned the Inequality of the taxes t levied upon tbe citizens of this city, t Statements were made by campaign t orators that such was not the case, but they were uttered with disregard t tor tbe truth. There can be no doubt t tout that some of the citizens of Cam- a bridge paid money which should have | been paid by others. There were s certain classes favored, and these r .irere principally among the rich. This a ■leant that the poor had to pay the taxes of the rich. 1 Look at tbe Lyceum hall property, r assessed In 1892 for $40,000; this was a done under Non-Partisan admlnlstra- a (ions. In 19u3 the property was as- f aessed at $60,000; this i.nder a Dem- \ ocratic administration. Recently, thin t prooerty sold In the market for $80,- ) 00/ 'This Is one Instance of the lne- d quality the citizens of Cambridge have v suffered, t There Is an estate on Linden street » Which was assessed for $27,000. This a estate sold for ab...
McNAMEE THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 14 November 1903
McNAMEE THE MAN. There are more reasons than one why the personality of Mayor McNamee should attract the particular attention of Cambridge citizens at this time. Besides the many occuranmes in his official career there has just transpired an event in bis private life which in many a man of bis prominence would have attracted public attention.. But It was his wish to have the occasion go by unheralded. The event we refer to is his 50th birthday. Fifty years ago on the 10th of November John Hugh Henry McNamee was born in Randolph, Mass. His parents moved to Cambridge in 1859 and the McNamee family l)ave been residents of this city ever since. The place which the mayor has occupied In tbe business history of Cambridge would of itself entitle him to distinct consideration on passing the half century mile-stone, but his prominence in the social and political life of the community gives him a still stronger claim to especial recognition. It is interesting to observe the peculiai mental pi...
THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTER [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 14 November 1903
THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTER The former organ of the local Democracy has seen fit to devote a hall page editorial in an exultant crow ovei the defeat of Mr. Montgomery, the Democratic candidate for senator. It Bays that the Democrats who gave him so "good a thrashing acted wisely in our judgment" and further informs us that he refused to support Mr. Montgomery last y9ar althougn he knew Mr. Montgomery was sup porting him. The more we learn of the conduct of the writer of that article for the pa.it year the surer we become that Ingratitude and treachery form in* small portion of his nature and that tbe enemy finds In him an easy mark by 'meanly tickling hla vanity. If he could bury his egotism and conceit and look at .himself in the light of the people's opinion of him as he would have us measure the fitness ot Mr. Montgomery, he could not help coming down In his own mind to even a lower level than the man be criticises or permit him his just deserts as reflected In the opinion of the ...
