THE NON PARTISAN TACTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
THE NON PARTISAN TACTICS. gen, Uimnpllh Imllglned that he had succeeded in producing evidence that would shake the confidence which the public (has reposed In Mayor McNamee's administration where he made the sensational charge that.an apparent discrepancy had been found in the purchasing account of the street department, but when Mr. Upham, City Auditor, came forward and assumed the responsibility of the whole transaction at the same time showing that the error taad been corrected through Mr. Shea's careful oversight of his department, Gen. Champlln must have wondered if a resignation was ■not in order. Mr. Bell has become very sollcltlous of the welfare of the city of late. He fears the Supt. of Streets and the Supt. of Buildings are going to ruin our fair name as he wants them to submit to an investigation. No wellinformed citizen has any fear of the outcome of Mr. Bell's order, but this same class of citizens are beginning to wonder why Mr. Bell was not equally anxious about the ...
A SUGGESTION AND A COUNTER SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
A SUGGESTION AND A COUNTER SUGGESTION. The subjoined correspondence is self explanatory. We have no doubt there are a large number of men and women who, like Mrs. Adams, would like to see the schools "taken out of politics." If It were possible to plan which would do this In the manner suggested by Mr. Facey, viz., by giving hoth parties equal and fair representation, there would not be a Democrat In the city who would object to It. The non partisans were highly elated last year over what they termed their victory In electing all the candidates for school committee. They called It "saving the schoola" "Saving the schools"—from what? From the Democrats? Nothing else. Do they not appreciate that If the Democrats had any designs on the schools, the Democratic women and girls could come to the polls in such numbers that every Democratic candidate would be easily elected?
LET US SAVE THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
LET US SAVE THE CITY. The remarks of Mr. Champlln at the "select gathering' 'at the Colonial club the other evening must have fallen with severe harshness on the ears of some of his auditors. "Let us save the city" said the general, but he did not say from what. There were persons present who knew what he meant and to their shame be It said that t,li«y did not have the courage to resent It.
POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
POINTS. At a Democratic rally held In Cedar hall In 1901, "Gus" Daly presided, and In Introducing Mr. John H. H. McNamee as one of the speakers, he said he would be the next Mayor-of Cambridge. Daly did not then dream that the nonpartisans would ever use him to attempt to disintegrate the Democratic party. St. Paul said that no one was tempted beyond his strength. Daly'B Democratic . strength was evidently less than the temptation. "Codex" asks with the Traveler "Has Daly changed, what have these fleron Covenantors discovered about hlmttflj makes them like him?" Don't assume too much, dear Codex. All the parchment emanating from that source will yet be known In the political history of Cambridge as "Rag-man Rolls." Just like the parchment signed long ago by their ancestors. f Councilman Clark and Elmore now say that they are sorry that the story about ths mistake In the payments for field stone leaked out. Of course they are, because it showed nothing wrong on the part of anyone In ...
BOSSISM VS. ALLEGED MACHINE [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
BOSSISM VS. ALLEGED MACHINE It has been one of the principal articles of tlhe stock in trade of our friends, the non-partisans, to raise a mighty howl about the Democrats of Cambridge being under the-behests of a machine. Tlhey have not been able as yet to name what the machine is composed of, but, In a hazy way, and with a very lofty bearing, they simply murmur and cry out "Machine, machine." They also assure everybody within the sound of their voices that tlhe non-partisan municipal party Is too virtuous, too patriotic, etc., etc.. to be under the thrall of any machine or any coterie of men who might aspire to guide Its fortunes: That, In fact, the movement was spontaneous, and would have our good citizens believe that they consider the having a machine to run party affairs to be the helgut of unprincipled political chicanery. But once In a while something comes to light—a straw floats to the surface which Bhows to our people conclusively that there Is something benath all this, a...
ANOTHER COWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
ANOTHER COWARD. Just how the story started or by w hem It Is hard to find out but there was certainly some trepidation among many of the school teachers when the rumor went around that there was not enough money to pay the salaries this month. On Monday when these same salaries were paid there was relief expressed by many for when so many hard stories are told about city affairs In Cambridge one hardly knows what to believe. There Is this to be said: After paying every teacher on the September payment. Agent Samuel B. Hubbard, of the Cambridge school committee, who, as secretary, for 10 years has been in charge of the payroll, had $118,654.14 left, anj yesterday he paid out 535.212.21. leaving a balance of $33,441.93.

Thurston was appointed chairman of the committee on finance, and, on reflguring the account, he reduced the total to $353,000, ...

BOARD OF ALDERMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
BOARD OF ALDERMEN. There was considerable discussion Tuesday evening on the order "introduced by Alderman Bell on October13, calling tor a list of bills outstanding from the departments of streets and of public buildings. The order was returned to the board with the mayor's veto and the accompanying explanation that the order was too vague as to just what was wanted. When it was read Alderman Bell happened to be out of the chamber, and as a matter of courtesy, Alderman Barrett moved thatit be tabled, which was carried. Later Alderman Bell had it taken from the table and there was a lively tilt. Alderman Bell in defense of the order said there should be no task for the departments to get at the information if their books were properly kept. He said he felt strongly that it was important that city council know exactly the financial condition of the city. It cannot know it if there are unpaid bills outstanding. Continuing, he said, "Why should the mayor take it upon himself to help out...

HENRY F. LEHAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 31 October 1903
HENRY F. LEHAN. Henry F. Lilian will go back to the State House with perhaps a cleaner title to his seat than any other man sent Iron any other district In' the commonwealth. Perhaps no other representative In next year's house will, be able to point to a uranlmous nomination at the caucus, a unanimous election at the pools, not only by constituents, but by constituents among whom he was born and among whom he has spent his whole life. We have no doubt that Harry will give full attention to his duties as a legislator, but we hope he will not neglect his law studies. We predict for him a bright and prosperous future not only as a public man but as a member of the legal profession. The Democratic candidate for representative honors in the fourth Middlesex district, was born in Boston on the '2!' th of March, 1852. Moving tog Cambridge in 1860 Mr. Abbott attended the primary school in Lafayette square, for some years. At the age of 11 ho went to the war as an officer's boy, afterwards ...
