Fraternal Visitation. On Wednesday evening last about twenty of the lady memliers of Olive Branch Lodge Daughters of Kebekah of tbi* city, accompanied by about one-third that number of those of the other seat, decided to visit Bcrniee Lodge at South Boston. A horse car was chartered, and at the close of the Lodge the happy party started from Odd Fellows' Hall, 54* Main street. The sight of a Cambridge ear iv South Boston was a source of much amusement to many of the younger members of that community, who took It for granted that the driver and conductor had lost their reckoning and were- tr, ing to reach Harvard square by that route, and many remarks, more pointed than elegant, were made at the stupidity, with suggestions where to switch off. Ax. Of course there was no violence, aad when tbe car arrived at its destination all were happy. The member, of the two lodge. paaaed aa hour or so very pleasantly, and those of this city returned to their homes much pleased with their trip.
The New Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 28 May 1887
The New Bridge. It waa with pleasure tbat we were able to announce in our last week's issue that the long agitation for additional menus of communication across the Charles river basin with Boston has secured at length its object. Governor Ames, late Wednesday afternoon of last week, signed the bill, which had passed both houses on Its last stage that day, which definitely insured the building of the bridge. Three commissioners, two of whom are the Mayors of Boston and Cambridge and the third their appointee, are, by the act, empowered to build the bridge, and the cities are required to pay for its cost iv equal proportions. The bridge can lie built easily during this season and the next, if the work is properly pushed. The third commissioner was appointed Friday of last week, in the person of Leander Greely, Esq., of this city, whose selection must be exceedingly gratifying to our citizens. Known to lie an experienced contractor and a practical business man. he will bring strength ...
The Beverly Division. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 28 May 1887
The Beverly Division. The bill passed by the Legislature for the separation of Beverly r'snii. from the old town has been vetoed by Governor Ames much to the delight of people who do not admire the method employed to secure favorable legislation. The Governor reasonably endorses the sentiments expressed by the House and Senate committee* deprecating the interference of the lobby and the employment of large sums of money to obtain the division of the ancient town. He believes with thousands of hi. fellow citizens that every measure should Ik- considered on its real merit* and not by the influence of tbe "third house." It required considerable temerity iv this act of the chief magistrate for him to set at naught the desires of many |*-rsonal and official friends mmiU-re.l with the proposed seceders. of course there are two opinions a* to the wisdom uf the (iovernor's course, but we believe he is supported by a large majority of the people of the State for his independence. The message...
