Whether justly or otherwise, the names •f various respectod Mayors of Cainbtidge will always be mentioned in connection with important public improvements eonsuiumated under their administrations: thus, that of Mayor Saunders will be associated with tbe inestimable advantage of brick sidewalks, in place of the old causeways of mud or dust over which our citizens were compelled to tramp. To Mayor Saunders are we also indebted for tight ly rows ot shade trees In various parts of the city; and we might thus enumerate many other public benefits which we owe to tbe wisdom aud foresight of our chief-magistrates in past times. It would be interesting if we were able to specify the especial public blessing lo be recalled by future generations, associated with the memory of our present popular executive; would that we might safely predict his connection with the commodious and splendid public library—at present only a literary castle-iu-the-air. There is certainly a more solid foundation for...

CITY HALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 21 May 1887

CITY HALL NOTES. The Board of Aidermen took the right view, we think, when it reduced the 7 per cent rate of interest on unpaid taxes as recommended by the committee on finance. It was clearly shown by Alderman Holton, who moved a reduction of one per cent, of the rate proposed and which has heretofore been charged, that it was an imposition on the taxpayers, when the city eau borrow money at 3 per cent. Alderman Stratum voiced the same sentiment, and the Board sustained both gentlemen. We hope that the Council will take tbe same view aud give persons of moderate means a chance. Mayor Russell announced to the Board of Aldermen on Wednesday evening, that he will soon appoint a matron to look after female prisoners, as a recent act of the Legislature requires. The measure is believed to lie a good one, but we understand that police officials do not favor it. The result of the work performed by the matrons in all cities with more than 30,000 inhabitants will prove the wisdom of passing...
