PATROLMAN RICE RESIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
PATROLMAN RICE RESIGNS. Patrolman Ralph It. Dice of the Cambridge police department has resigned his position. The resignation was placed In Mayor Daly's hands Monday by Acting-Chief Pullen. Tatrolman Itlce gave as his reason for resigning that he had an opportunity to go Into business with his brother, and alter thinking it over decided to accept it. He Is 32 years old. having been liorn In September. 1871. He was appointed to the police force Jan. 2S. 1896, and since that time has done patrol duty In all sections of the city. Mayor Daly accepted It. There has been no member of the police department before the mayor oftener on various charges than Rice. He was continually falling Into some infringement of the rules and on several occasions came very near losing his buttons. He had fondly hoped to be one of the appointee* to the position of sergeant under the "Reorganization" scheme, but his hopes were not realized. This may have had something to do with his resignation.

THE ELKS DINE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
THE ELKS DINE. It Is a singular coincidence that B. P. O. E. stand for "best people on earth." and for Benevolent and Protective (irder of Elks, as well. Judging by the class of men one meets at Cambridge Lodge. No. 830. one would feel safe In claiming that whichever interpretation one puts on these Initials It will mean the same class of Individuals. It is difficult to find a more genial, hospitable, benevolent set of men than one meets at the Cambridge Lodge of Elks. Last Wednesday the lodge had In addition to its regular session. Initiation exercises, an Italian supper and Impromptu concert. The whole affair proved to be a great success. Everybody wns loud In the praises of the chairman of the social session for the excellent taste which he displayed In catering to palate* of the various members. The visiting brothers from Boston, INew York, Hartford, San Francisco, and other cities did much to make the entertainment a sneceas.

THE DEMOCRATIC POSITION [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
THE DEMOCRATIC POSITION There has been a great deal said and some of the Non-partisan members of the cjinmon council have stated 111 that chamber that the attitude of the Democrats In holding up the water loan was not s..icere and that they were playing politics, and further that they were simply holding It up at ths time In the hopes that In the event of their winning next year that they would pass it then and have all the fat po3i tlons and plums to give out themselves. If the people who make such absurd statements would but pause for a momeat and consider thty would see how foolish their own statements were. In the first place. If the Democrats win next year—which event we confidently predict from present IndleaSotlS—they con id not for a moment entertain the false hope that they would have a twothlrds majority in the common council which would be necessary to pn.-s the oicler and they very well realize the fact that the Non-partisan members would not aid in passing any loan with...

Those who made such a statement knew better If they knew anything at all. for in the estimates prepared the cost Is placed at ■798,000 for the four sections, and we take the figures from the estimates prepared by themselves and given to us from their office. This is explicitly laid down In the estimates of the water board, and does not Include the extra $100,000, which they any would be *he extra cost of doing the job at day labor.

DOUBLE VICTORY [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
DOUBLE VICTORY The Victory won by tho throe druggists who wore refused a license by Mayor Duly was certainly a vindication of their rights In the inteiests of justice and tolerntlon. As wo pointed out last week. 0 man charged with a misdemeanor Is entitled to lie considered innocent until he Is proven guilty. The four druggists who have fallen under the bun of Mayor Daly and the acting chief were the victims of a plot as despicable In Its character as that of a. band of guerrillas who steal upon a company or soldiers and ruthlessly put to death leg-weary or sir-Itstricken men who have fallen behind In the march. Acting Chief fallen sent, n reserve otlieer through the city In plain clothes with orders to entrap. If he could, every druggist Into selling him Intoxicating lirpior contrary to law. This Of. tlcer used every ruse within his ken to Induce the drugglsU to become his vie. tims. He pleaded sudden Illness, he assimilated friendship, he even procured an Introduction under an ass...
COUNCILMAN GILES [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
COUNCILMAN GILES Anyone who visits the common council chamber of a Tuesday evening will notice a sleepy-looking Individual who has been sitting well down in hU cha'.r the entire evening, rise shortly after the curfew tolls the knell of parting eve and speak as follows: "Mr. President — I hope the council will hasten in Its business tonight. I'm sleepy and want to go home." Even with a Wilson eardrum It would be Impossible to hear this young Non-partisan t?i councilman, who was run Into nomination at the last moment with the Intention on the part of General Chaniplln of trimming Mr. Joel, say another word during the evening which pertained at all to the subject in quest on. He Is always late at the meetings. He has never been known to introduce an order into the council: he never pays the slightest attention to the words of his fellow members; he keeps up an eternal "buzz" with his left-hand neighbor, and when the evening grows late he adjourns to the ante-room, dons his coat, return...
NON-PARTISAN BLUNDERS [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
NON-PARTISAN BLUNDERS In the rush to push through the "reorganization"' for the police department the whole thing was done In the usual manner which has characterized the work of that irresponsible party In the past, mid as "by their deeds shall ye know them." what Improvement can we' expect for the future? In a communication sent to the board of aldermen by the mayor It would seem that there had not been Hie requisite number of men appointed which the "reorganization" scheme made possible, and tlie mistake was rectified (?) by the appointment of n new member. As has been-asked very pertinently by several since Tuesday evening, What assurance have we now that the mayor and Ills party are right V The blunders which they have made In the past and the thoroughness which they have shown and are snoring that they know nothing whatever about the city's affairs will undoubtedly lead to some serious mistakes In which, after the tax-payers have had to settle some large amounts, will awaken t...

COUNCILMAN WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
COUNCILMAN WOOD. I'ounollinnn Russell A. \\'ood Is still right In the business, The wise ones lit City Hall allowed hist week that the young man had petered out and had colne to the end of the rope, where he would be left to dangle. Like n gritty young mnn having once got n good' hold he refused to let go. and to the surprise of all and to the credit of himself he appeared Tuesday night With another carefully-prepared speech. As tin- case stands today the councilman has actually rilled over five newspaper columns with Indisputable facts pertaining to the subject of our water system. The task STr. Wood undertook has been nothing short of collossal. nnd it Is understood that he hns not come to the end of his resources yet. To persevere In-a matter in the manlier shown by Sir. Wood Is worthy of commendation even though he be In the wrong. But what mnn Is so narrow-minded as to maintain, la the fnce of nil the fncts he has lined up before ns. that be Is entirely In the wrong? If he is n...
PIERCE OUSTED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 May 1904
PIERCE OUSTED. The confirmation If L. M. Hastings as city engineer last! Tuesday evening by a majority of the board of aldermen marks the end of a struggle between principle and sell-interest among the Non partisan!, which for a time seemed destined to end in utter demoralization. The contest between Messrs. Pierce and Hastings for the position has brought to light many facts which tend to show the hollowness of Nonpartisanship. It Is evident from what has transpired that the fate of the socalled Non-partisan party is doomed. Two weeks ago. when Mr. (Hastings failed of confirmation many thought the matter would be dropped. It was felt that for once under Mayor Daly's administration the principles of Nonpartisanship as expounded' by his honor and other party leaders had prevailed. But it, was not to he. The Old-time Library Hall dictators would not tolerate such a thing when one ot their pets was to suffer. They had dominated and they must now dominate the board of aldermen. Howwas t...
