THE "SENTINEL'S" GOSSIP On Current Events and Happenings. A Few Things Observed by Him as He Patrols His Post. For the first time in many years the pedlars and ;' use who deal in cheap fdod arc very shy how they bring or semi this elas, of goods to .this, city. Before the appointment of the present efficient Inspector of meats and provisions to look alter these matters it was well known that there was no such inspector here aad when there was a lot of spoiled tish, meat, fruit or vegetables a host of out-of-town pedlars would buy these goofls cheap and sell them here as they knew that there was no one to molest them. The vigilance of Mr. Johnson has driven nearly all these cheap hawkers from our streets and It is now very seldom that they will take a chance in coming here. The order of things has been a great factor in keeping the good health of our citizens, and the better class of pedlars are very pleased that the cheap competitors have been driven from our city.

If It had not been for Alderman Billy Davis Instating on putting in that order for continuing the mayor's action in removing Chief of Police Cunningham, the chief would lie today again wearing his uniform and be back at the head Of the department In reality as he is now only technically, it was despite the protests of Mayor Italy and Of AlderUUin Coveney that the order was Introduced for the mayor held that chief Cunningham-was not legally appointed and he knew all about it. Justice Baker rules that all of Mayor Daly's contentions were, of no avail and reserves '.lis decision only on the question as to whether the chief was legally discharged or not. 1 think that tills is a pretty severe blow to the mayor's Judgment ol the legal aspect of the affair, Tin- assistant assessors came very near not getting their pay this mouth.

LEGALLY APPOINTED. Says Justice Barker in the Case Of Chief of Police Cunningham—Position Not Under Civil Service Rules. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 18 June 1904
LEGALLY APPOINTED. Says Justice Barker in the Case Of Chief of Police Cunningham—Position Not Under Civil Service Rules. Chief of Police Htnry J. Cunningham scored several points In the hearing before Mr. Justice Barker lv tbe supreme court on Tuesday last in his suit against Mayor Daly and Acting Chief Frederick B. Puilen for reinstatement. The defense set up by Mayor Daly that Chief Cunningham was never legally appointed because of his failure to comply with the civil service requirements and because he was not, prior to his appointment, a member of the police force, was overruled peremptorily by the court. When Chief Cunningham was appointed there was much criticism of Mayor McNamee's action In taking one outside the police force for the position and it was persistently stated and reiterated among the opponents of the ex-mayor's administration, that the appointment was not valid because Cunningham was never properly qualified. The ruling of Justice Barker demonstrates the falsity...

THE BEAD AND THE IDEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 18 June 1904
THE BEAD AND THE IDEAL. There Is perhaps no word In our language more misleading to the average render than the word "Ideal." It Is used to express all sorts of conditions and In almost every instance is used as though it were real. It may not have occurred to the unthinking or the very busy that "Ideal" and "real" are diametrically opposed to each other. Even to the very brightest of minds this distinction has been lost sight of much to the confusion of those who reckoned or theorized without its iniporta lice. Without going Into details we may mention that it has led profound philosophers like Kant and Hegel to build up a false system of reasoning: It has caused historians and statesmen to make false speculations, while it has allowed the clever but dishonest interpretor of conditions to beguile the -(.public IrttO believing that the one was the otner in order that he might profit by both. The manner In which the public ot Cambridge had been deceived by this kind or sophistry unti...
MORE BROADMINDEDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 18 June 1904
MORE BROADMINDEDNESS. Really is it not surprising that so liberal (?) a Non-partisan as Councilman Walcott should rise and oppose Councilman Downey's motion that the report from the water supply committee, regarding Mr. Wood's order, lie printed in the calendar. Is It that the councilman from Ward !) believes that the report Is so Inconsistent, confuted and self-contradictory that It will not bear publication? I-'le on such a questionable proceeding as to refuse to allow tin- report to be printed. Fortunately the report has been obtained by the Cambridge papers, and so Air. Walcott's noble stand has become null and void. Mr. Walcott. it looks very much ns if you were playing politics. We have always maintained that to practice true Non-partisanship is a pretty hard thing to do. although It has been done in one or two instances, and we believe you an- a living example and proof of our claim.

THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 18 June 1904
THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE Through what Is considered by many as an Injustice done one scholar by a teacher of the English High school, a special meeting of the school committee wns called for Tuesday evening to have the committee define Its rule In relation to what was a necessary quallllcntion for a diploma. Although Committeeman Thurston endeavored to have this done. Messrs Stone. Piper and I.nncester and Mrs. rhase voted the motion down, and nothing was accomplished. At the present time the principals of the different schools or the teachers can Interpret as they wish and no scholar would be able to obtain his or her diploma should he or she fall under the ban of nny teacher lo whose class they might he so unfortunate as to belong. This is clearly a deplorable state of affairs, and not one which should he allowed under any circumstances.

RUMOR GAINS CREDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 18 June 1904
RUMOR GAINS CREDENCE. As time goes on the rumor Is gaining credence -hat. as we have had occasion to point out before, lien. Champlln will not be at the head of the Nonpartisan forces next fall. The lieneral doubtless realizes thnt it is better to retire with laurels than to risk a defeat at the head of the Democrats. Who will head the forces when Chaiuplin gets out It Is hard to say. It Is barely possible that his retirement as leader would result In the abandoning of the Non-partisan party entirely. Of course the eventual breaking up of the party Is inevitable, so after all. It may as well come tills fall as a year later. Already it Is almost an assured fact that there will Is- a Republican ticket next year. To have three tickets in the Held would mean sure disaster to the Non-partisans. On the whole. It is beginning to look rather stormy on the banks of the Potomac, and Wljen champlln formally announces his retirement there, will certainly be consternation l» Mr- Daly's camp.
