AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
AT LAST. A Piece of Property Has Been Found That is Thought Will Stand Investigation for Over-Assessment. After looking over all th&amp;jiroperty that there could be a possibility ot being an over assessment In the recent raising of values by the assessors In the Harvard square district, three trustees, all residents of other cities, and towns, have decided that they will apply to the county commissioners In an effort to cast discredit ok the work of those who have levied the taxes there, and In the name of the A. D. club, asking that an abatement of the taxes on the building at the corner of Massachusetts avenue and Plympton street be made. A petition has been filed with the clerk of courts at East Cambridge, asking tiiat the county commissioners give a hearing to the'representatives of the A. D. club. The petition represents Alfred Bowditch of Boston. Chas. F. Adams, 2d, of Concord, and Neal Rantoul of Boaton, and states that on May 1 and ever since the above-named have be...
MR. BLODGETT CRITICSES CAMBRIDGE "GOO-GOOS." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
MR. BLODGETT CRITICSES CAMBRIDGE "GOO-GOOS." Severe criticism of the Good Government association of Cambridge marked the address of Warren X. Ulodgett last night before the members of the Ward 9 Non-partisan club. The speaker could see no reason for Ihe existence of the organization for che reason thnt It put a candidate through a sort ot third degree Inquiry ns to his birthplace, employment, family history and personal affiliation, and ut the same time did not and could not ask for assurances as to his moral courage and character. Other speakers were Augustine J. Daly. Non-partisan candidate for mayor; Hon. John W. Coveney. James Culhnne and Assessor Jeremiah F. Donovan.

A PECULIAR CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
A PECULIAR CONTEST. The extraordinary and peculiar features of the city election cause it quite to overshadow In point of Interest the great state election, which locally was but of secondary and subordinate Interest Men of all parties are Interested In the city election, not altogether for party reasons, and not all for the same reason. For months the non-partisan party have been searching for a .standardbearer. In turn every prominent man of ability and standing on that side has been considered, weighed, tested —and rejected. The lightning finally struck one Augustine J. Daly. And who is he? A lawyer of the ordinary type, whose practice has been confined largely to tbe local police court, without business training or experience In public office, an inconspicuous person, unknown to the general public, the kind of an Individual one would be astonished to find at the head of a great business corporation, the last man in the world one familiar with tne professed ideals and theories of...
THE LABORERS AND THE STREET DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
THE LABORERS AND THE STREET DEPARTMENT. The records show that the employes of the street department have worked more steadily this year than In any , year in the history of the department. Heretofore administrations have laid off large numbers of men in June and tie latter part of May, only to re-em-ploy them in October and November Just prior to the city election. This year a large force of men were employed a month earlier than usual and Instead of laying off a large number of meh in June, the department kept them working steadily into August An examination of pay-rolls discloses the fact that out of.the eight standard appropriations of the street department for the time during which Mr. Shea has been in office,- about 11 months, there have been spent in wages $16,610.77 more than was given the city employes from these eight appropriations under the administration of Mr. Brown, in 1902. To Illustrate the treatment of laborers under the administration of Mayor Champlln, the chairma...
THE MAYOR VERSUS NON-PARTISAN POLITICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
THE MAYOR VERSUS NON-PARTISAN POLITICIANS. The assertion was made by Mayor McNamee last year that the real estate In this city was not assessed ai Its true value. This statement was denied by the Non-partisans. Now, If the statement made by the mayor In regard to the real estate values were true. It certainly would be In order for the Non-partisans to make a retraction. They used strong language, they said the mayor was reckless In his utterances; that there was no foundation In fact for tbe statement. We trust they will carefully read what Is to follow, and If, after so doing thoy aro not convinced that they were wrong and the mayor was rlg'at • hen we will lift our hat to them. When tho mayor pointed out thnt certain estates wore not assessed at their true Value/he m'ettnt that an in' justice was being perpetrated on the public. Ho meant that one fellow was paying tho taxes which the other fellow ought to pay. If A pays taxes on property which Is assessed at $10,--000, and tho est...
THE MAYOR AND THE ARMORY BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
THE MAYOR AND THE ARMORY BALL. The utter maliciousness of the story published In Thursday morning's Herald lp which It was stated that the mayor would refuse to attend the mil Itia ball at the Armory because he couldn't precede the governor in the grand march, was fully exposed when the mayor stated his real position. We think every right minded citizen will agree that as the city is to pay $80,000, more or less, for this afmory It would have been no more than decent and appropriate If the militia officers had asked the city to take some official part in the formal open ing of the building. The militia liommlttee may be fully equipped In t'.ie matter of military tactics, but they appear to be a little behind In the; ordinary proprieties of civic life. Possibly If tbey are not too much blinded by prejudice the calm anil dignified statement of the mayor will open their eyes. Probably this Is the first time fiat an armory built and paid for by a city, for the housing of Its own milltlo...

"DARK LANTERN" METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
"DARK LANTERN" METHODS. . 1 The Cambridge Times asks "What's , this report about a candidate or candi- , dates for aldermen being refused nor- , Ination papers by the non-partisan | committee. Is It to be only the selected , eleven, who are to be voted for at Ihe | primaries on Nov. 24? It looks like more dark lantern methods.' 1 That Is just what it Is. the non-partisan party | must swallow whatever the machine , sees fit to give It. It has surrendered , or has been forced to surrender, all Its , rights and prerogatives in the choice | of candidates as completely as was | ever done by the most pliant tools of machine rule anywhera on earth. The non-partisans are today a helpless par- , ty In the hands of arrogant politicians ' who have more use for the counsel and co-operation of Democratic outcasts ] whom In years past they refused to tol- , crate or trust, than they have for the j musses of their own party. Machine rule with all that If Implies Is the oroer of the day. Coveney. J...

THE GOO-GOO ASSOCIATION. Many- are Ihe Ills to which the Non- I partisan body is heir to. The latest I distemper to rise tie temperature of I its'debilitated s&gt;stem Is that nosey 1 concern, the Good Government association. Nor are the Goo-Goos them selves having anything of a cinch lv • Iheir self-appointed task. Last week Mr. Pollock the Non-partisan opponent ) of Donovan, gave them a rather point- c eel call down In reply to their interro- I gallon, and now comes Mr. Blodgett 1 with a Rick on the same lines. Mr. e Blodgett's objections seems to be that t they ask questions about a candidate's birthplace, employment, family tiCs tory and personal afflictions.

VOTE NO! [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
VOTE NO! We must not permit our Interest in the many candidates for office to cause ns to forget the no-llcense question. It has been charged that Democratic sue- -' • cats (a municipal politic* In Oamorldge meant a return~4othe saloon, and there was evidence during tbe last city campaign that some ot our opponente would aot be sorry If such was tbe result, with a license board appointed by a Republican governor, tbe ninety or more saloons opened in Cambridge would be quite a factor as a "revenue source" to tbe party able to control their distribution. However, the Democratic party baa shown that the larger their party vote is, the larger the license majority le and we earnestly urge oft. all Democrats to see to It that such will be the case this year. We can Imagine no greater calamity that could befall our city than a return to the open saloon and we trust all Democrats will take that view of It It is best for tbe Democratic party. It is beat for tbe city and her people. VOTH NO!<...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 21 November 1903
The Cambridge Press announced some time ago that it was to be neither Democratic nor non-partisan, but It has only kept half that promise, for it Is decidedly on the non-partisan sldr for the past two weeks. Last week it gave a column of sarcastic deductions and calculations on tbe putting to work in the street department of some seventy men to do the usual fall cleaning up. With tbe usual non-partisan strabismus, it can see nothing In It but political and ulterior motives. Bo far as It lay in the power of the non-par-tisans they effectively blocked all proposals that looked In the "direction of tbe worklngmen and It is evident that If they could keep them Idle this time they would no It also, and then send their paid heelers among them to solicit their support. The worklngmen of the city know who have been their friends, they know how much use the non-partisans have for them after election. They have not forgotten the "Champlln Shovel" yet and while sarcasm at their expense may be ...

It may be said that as a citizen he haa been what the average citizen of fair Intelligence and some education may reasonably be expected lo lie. Like many another average, citizen he has, It Is now apparent, secretly nursed an ambition for official honors, not suspected at the time he solicited his Democratic friends and associates to go up to Governor Russell and Intercede with the governor In.his behalf so that he might secure the appointment as a means of helping htm In his law business, because It Ik said to help a young lawyer to be entitled to be called "Judge." When he took a partisan nomination as a Democratic candidate for alderman he was exhibiting only mild symptoms of the Itch tor office, no more than manyotlrcrsby their conduct confess to. Mr. Daly's private life is his own affair; but even If It were for public Intpection we have no reason to claim that it would not oear Inspection. We think we have stated fairly all claims for preferment to the office of mayor which M...
