THE "SENTINEL'S" GOSSIP On Current Events and Happenings. A Few Things Observed by Him as He Patrols His Post. Councilman Monk has n very deep thought-out plan to assist this city In Its present flnnnclal difficulties. I was talking with him on the Increase of the tax rate and the very bad condition of several of our streets which are continually growing worse, and he said: "The financial a ndltlon of Cambridge now Is Just as oad as It can be. but what have we ro look forward to? There are streets which aro a disgrace to any city, and If we kept all of these as we ought to keep th'om we would be bankrupt. We baVe got to devise some method to help out our finances, nnd I am of the opinion that wo must do this with our water, gas and electric lighting, and kindred public necessities. If those were all owned by tho city and administered economically, as a business man would conduct his own private business, we would have tho products of these things given tq us at a much lower price th...

FOR WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 4 June 1904
FOR WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. Attention is called at this time to the movement now going on In Cambridge to shorten the hours of labor of the grocery and provision clerks by asking the merchants to close their places of business Wednesdays during Julio, July, August and September at 1 o'clock p. m. We know of no ibody of men who deserve the unanimous support of the public than do the grocery and provision clerks, who work all hours of the night and day to serve the public and at tho same time do Justice to their employers. In Cambridge the clerks nre at work from I! a. m. to (1 and 7 p. m., except Saturdays, when tho working dny Is lengthened until 11 and 12 p. in., and In some cases the Sabbath morn has broken In before their work is completed. Surely, then if any body of mon deserve a halfholiday during the summer months, tho grocery and provision clerks deserve it. and tho purchasing public can assist them to secure It if they will but* remember that the obliging clerk who sees to it ...

THE STREET LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 4 June 1904
THE STREET LOAN. Last year when Superintendent of Streets Shea had spent a large part of the money In his maintenance account and was ready to commence construction and rebuilding in his department he went to the city government and asked for the necessary funds to commence the work. The Non-partisans refused to give him n cent, and It was necessary to lay the men off on this account. The Non-partlsnns cared nothing for the men who were out of work or their families who would suffer: they cared nothing for the dangerous condition of the streets: they cared nothing except to play what they considered was good politics In keeping money from the street department which would be spent under a Democratic administration. Almost the first set which the same Non-partlsans did this year on coming Into power wns to introduce an order for a street construction loan. The street department had this year over $TO.i)tto more than Superintendent Shea had Inst year, but this did not satisfy the rapa...

OUTRAGEOUS UNFAIRNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 4 June 1904
OUTRAGEOUS UNFAIRNESS. One of the most outrageous Instances of unfairness which has come to the surface 'since the movement started' by 2 Councilman Wood of Ward in was inaugurated, for an Investigation of the water question, occurred last Tuesday. An order came down from the board of aldermen that the city government accompany the water board on a tour of Inspection of the Hobbs brook and Stony brook reservoirs. The day set for this junket was next Tuesday. As was divulged to Mr. Wood Inadvertently by one on the inside, it is the intention of the water board to overwhelm the members of the city council with an appreciation of the vastness and grandness of Cambridge's grand HT plant, anC after treating the members to a rousing dinner and a general good time to. trust to our Maker above that the appropriation order will go through on Tuesday night with colors Hying. Oh, no, gentle reader, do not think for a moment that this Is dirty politics. How could it be? It is simply another Non...

WILL THEY BE CONSISTED? Mr. McDuffee has already In his possession an order which Councilman Wood will Introduce next Tuesday night.

We"ask again. Will they be consistent?
VETOED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 4 June 1904
VETOED. The veto by flovernor Bates of the bill giving tho call-men of the Cambridge Hre department the preference in appointment to the permanent force is thoroughly in keeping with his attitude on all questions and acts which in nny way tend to tnke away from the Republican officials any powers which they may hold. This bill received the unanimous endorsement of the city council and fhe mayor of our cfty. It provided that the cnll-ineii should take a civil service examination, and nfter nnssing the same be given the preference In appointment. The civil service, as it is applied at the present time, is a farce. Because a man may be able to write a good hand and to do examples In arithmetic correctly does not of necessity make him a good Ilreman, and yet tnat Is what the civil service requires. It is nn acknowledged fact that at the present time the callmen ot tho fire department do a great part of tho work. The permanent men. because of the numbers, are depended upon to see that th...

METROPOLITAN'S INVITATION. Secretary Davenport of the' Metropolitan water and sewerage board has i stnted that the Cambridge efty government would be welcome visitors at the ' .Metropolitan works next Saturday, June 11. This obviates the objection raised lust Tuesday night, when Councilman Wood moved to amend Alderman Lake's order to visit the Cambridge works by auding a trip to Clinton. On Tuesday night It was suggested that it would be a piece of impertinence'to "butt in" at Clinton without a knowledge of whether 5f not visitors would be welcome.Secretary Davenport has salt? that not only will'the members of the city government be welcome at the works at Clinton, but he will Instruct Engineer Richardson, Who Is stationed at Clinton, to show the visitors over the works and to extend every possible courtesy. .Mr. Davenport further suggested that the visitors drive 13 miles over irom Clinton to Southboro, where the colossal storage plant there located might be inspected.
