Alderqian Coveney is very positive in the assertion that he is going to have thai iioiiiluatioii for principal assessor delivered to lilin by ihe Nonpartisan's this fall, or there will lie trouble with-a great big T. In conversation with n certain gentleman recently he made the statement tliat he held the Non-partisan parly In toe hollow of his hand, and that If the snln party did not do Just as he wanted It to that there Would be no Nonpartisan parly hereafter, Of course, the Goo Goo Club and Its followers he considers as simply side Issues, anil nlso considers thnt he can pull those Republicans aud Democrats who love flic name "Non-partisan." and still live In hopes that their lofty Ideals may some day be realized If they stick to it long enough, around by Ibe nose. I would mention to the alderman from Bast Cambridge that when the caucus votes are counted this full that ...

THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD DAY. At n well-attended meeting of the Democratic city committee held at the ward room In Central square on Friday evening, June 3, It was unanimously voted to hold a Held day under the auspices of the committee some time during the summer. This unanimity of sentiment In favor of the event Is In itself one of the most essential guar. nntees of Its success. It means that every member of the committee will be nn apostle willing to preach the propriety of the undertaking as a means of advancing the Interests of Democracy. The selection of the time and place for the affair was left to a sub-commit-tee consisting of the president, vicepresident, secretary and treasurer of the city committee.

AS TO CHIEF OF POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 11 June 1904
AS TO CHIEF OF POLICE. The case of Cunningham vs. Daly, mayor or Cambridge, c:. al.. will be heard by Mr. Justice Marker of the Supreme court, sitting at Hoston on Tuesday next. As this case has aroused considerable interest In political and legal circles In Cambridge and indeed because of certain defenses allied on by the mayor, throughout the whole Commonwealth, we submit for our renders a brief statement of the Issues raised by counsel for the parties. This. It is hoped, will make a further study of the questions Involved more Intelligible to our numerous readers outside the legal profession, who are taking a deep Interest in every phase of the controversy. Mr. Cunningham's counsel relies solely on Section 10 of the Charter of the City of Cambridge. So much of that section as Is applicable to the oase reads as follows: "The Mayor, nfter due henrlng. mny. with the approval of a majority of the Imnrd nf nlrieniirn, remove . . . nny members of tlie poitee force . . . nnd nny other e...
PRAISE FOR BLODGETT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 11 June 1904
PRAISE FOR BLODGETT. Alderman Blodgett deserves considerable credit for bringing out the information from the water board's hydraulic engineer, Mr. Coffin, which he did at the after-dinner talk at the Woodland Park Hotel on Tuesday last. In answer to Mr. Blodgett'S question: "At tin end of that time, then leleven years), the expenditure of $760,000 would be useless';" Mr. Collin ."aid: "In I'.nr, we should reach the limit of our present supply and we ther should have to go to some other source of simply. The proposed new pipe line woud do us no good then." It may be that this Is another of Alderman lilodgett's blunders, but. It certainly shows to the citizens of Cambridge the most valid reason In the world why the proposed new pipe line should not be laid at this time, if ever. The citizens are indebted to Mr. Blodgett for drawing out this valuable information which will be the means, no doubt, of saving the foolish expenditure of from threequarters of a million to a million dollars...
WORKING MAN'S FRIEND(?) [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 11 June 1904
WORKING MAN'S FRIEND(?) It was very noticeable how solicitous were the speakers nt the after-dinner talk nt the Woodland Park Hotel on Tuesday that tbe conduit Bhould be built so that the water board could give work to the laboring man. How much this amounts to can lie abundantly shown from the fact that there has been $10,000 appropriated for the purpose of doing work on the park around Fresh pond. Although this money was appropriated some weeks ago there has been no move made to use any part of It for the benefit of the Cam bridge' working men and the park and the shallow water which edges the pond is In a very bad condition at the present time. Is it that the water board desires to keep the pnrk In this present unsightly condition so that the money can be used Just before election this fall when they may consider that it will do the most good? Would some member of the majority on the board please tell the worklngmen Just how this Is?
