Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

How dare the poverty-stricken Democrats lsy claim to positions of honor at City Hall? But votes are counted by heads, not by the dollars they represent. The common laborer's vote counts just as much as does the milllonsire's. Every vote is a vote on election day.

THE MAYOR AND THE NEGROES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

THE MAYOR AND THE NEGROES. Those who charge the Mayor with llliberallty, those who say that he applies tests of religion and race to the administration of the city's affairs, will do well to read the following.words of -Rev. J. Henry Duckrey, the colored lender, delivered recently from tbe pulpit of the Mount Olive Baptist Church. Mr. Duckrey said, in part: "During the past year, the colored people of this country have a lot to be thankful for. We are lieginning to stand out and better along the lines cf peaceful and useful Industry. The heart of the great American people has been at last rightly reached"" In the deprecation of lynching. I am thankful that higher prosperity Is evidenced among the negroes of New England. "Here In Cambridge, I am thankful for th* Cambridge Idea as promulgated < and carried out by Mayor McNamee.

GEORGE A. PERKINS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

GEORGE A. PERKINS. The Chronicle usually trie* to be fair. Very often It succeeds. Knowing that this is the main cause of it* prosperity; that this is why Intelligent people like to read It, we wonder that It sometimes allows Itself to fall away from Its standard. Last week it published a picture of .Mr. George A. Perkins, accompanied by a column of sneering ridicule, The sneers were not directed against his character as a man or bis standing in. the community. . '■.">'.'. What called them forth was the fact that since 1882 he has run for office a number of times as a Democratic candidate against overwhelming political odds. XI Is conceded that he was three times elected to thp House of Representatives from old Ward 1, once defeating Hon. John Read, and that Gov. Russell sufficiently approved of him to appoint him a member of the State Highway Commission, an office which be filled with distinguished success for several years, a portion of the time as chairman. The Chronic...

GENERAL APATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

GENERAL APATHY. General ajwtby seems to be In com* miinil of the Non-partisan forces, and In his skirmishes with tbe enemy to date- in- has been compelled to retreat In disorder. No political battle has ever iii-en fought tn Cambridge, wbere the opposition has shown so little skill as at this time, or where the people have shown so much Indifference. Clearly tin- machine method* which compelled the Non-partisan voters to take what was given them or go without, ba* bad its effect. The ticket as chosen ha* been a wet blanket, and If the Indications at this time signify anything, It Is that It will not dry before election, The Non-partisan speakers are compelled to confine themselves to small halls mid small audiences; and small meaningless speeches Is the rule everywhere. Tbelr campaign opened with a chill anil has continued to shiver In it* circuit of the city. Bcrnp book oratory and state innuendoes which bare don* duty since the first of tbe year, are tbe recitations to which the f...

ALL ARE AMERICANS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

ALL ARE AMERICANS. Mr, Edmund A. Whitman appears to be greatly exercised over wmethlng. Last year he voted for the re-election of Mayor McNamee,-but this year he will vote the other way. The reason for this change is, as he puts it himself, that we find "the mayor, as the head of the Democratic organisation in the city, applying tests of race and creed, to appointments to office." We should like to ask Mr. .Whitman what test* of race and creed were applied In tbe cases ot James W. Pierce, whom the (mayor appointed city engineer; of W. I* B. Glfford who was re-elected librarian; and ot Dr. Farnham, who was re-elected physician to the board ot health. These offices pay |3000 a year each. They are the highest paid offices In the city except those ot mayor and city solicitor. They are the only one* in the $3000 class. What tost ot religion and race was applied when Dr. Boswell Wetherbee and Goodwin A. leenberg were 1 appointed members of tbe board ot health? Did Dr. W. C. Lane and E. We...

ARCHIBALD THE KNIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

ARCHIBALD THE KNIGHT. As Archibald M. Howe strutted forth on the stage of Odd Fellows' hall, at the Non-partisan meet lug laat Monday night, he looked every Inch a bold and a valiant knight. It was a glorious scene. To one not acquainted with the gentleman, he might I,c taken for a god; but to others who know him well, he would be taken for something else, which it la not necessary here to mention. Archibald was extremely dramatic as he defiantly moved toward the centre of the stage, w|tl| hi* right hand pointing toward tbe sky, exclaiming, "Where I. McGlnty?" That was Indeed n tragic moment. Everybody looked upward, for that Is where Archibald's home office is; be le only nn agent from on high, Most people have an Impresslon that MrGlnty did not go up, but thnt he was deposited In a cavity, in the bottom of the ocean. Able critics of history have been studying this point of Archibald*. No one can doubt but that Archibald Is familiar with the Inst resting olsce of McGlnty. Why shoul...

THE DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

THE DIFFERENCE. Last week there were two meeting* of colored citizens. One was held In the Non-partisan cause. There were by actual count 17 voters at thl* rally. The Chronicle and the Tribune both, published a column account ot this '•enthusiastic" gathering but failed to state the number present. The same article was published in both paper** and was evidently written by some on* in the Non-partisan headquarter*. On the same evening another rally of colored citizens, in the McNamee interest, was held. There were 400 at this meeting. The Chronicle said nothing about it, The Tribune gave it one (neb under general heading of "Central Square Items." "if some of the Republican voters of Boston would abate a little their hostility to men with Irish names ther would not find themselves so embarrassed as they now appear to be by the nomination of tbe Hon. Isaac B. Allen for street commissioner." So spoke the Suburban last week. It Ib dangerous In America to vote against a man because of h...

FORGET IT. Mr. John W. Coveney ot Ba*t Cap*, bridge, some time Democratic alderninn, now Non-partisan campaign orator, at a Non-partlean rally the other night, said to hi* audience, "Forget what some of your candidates said laat year In the exuberance of their enthusiasm." He was referring to a speech, which during tin- last campaign be made every night on the Democratic platforms. This speech wa* *o grossly foul that It would be an offence against decency to repeat It In print, or la spokem language. It was merely a cold-blooded, deliberate. Indecent insult to the wive* and mother* of the Non-partisan voters, Ho was repeatedly urged by Democrats to discontinue tb* utterance of this foulness, but In the "exuberance ot Oils entluiKlamn" he persisted. That speech lost votes to the Democrat*.

The speaking at last Monday* affair wa* of the moat depressing character. None of the speakers were able, try a* they would, to create any enthusiasm, cheers were called for Mr. Daly, and not more than SO people responded. Mr. Daly wa* plainly embarassed with tbe coldness of hi* reception, and faltered perceptibly at tb* beginning of his speech; he, however, recovered well before the do**, and although be wa* only threshing old Non-partisan straw deserved more warmth ef appreciation than be received.

SIGNIFICANCE OF LAST YEAR'S VOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

SIGNIFICANCE OF LAST YEAR'S VOTE. It 1. doubtful if the significance of the No-llcense vote last year is fully appreciated by the people of Cambridge. We believe It contains food for reflection. Among the many calamities predicted. In tbe event of Democratic success In the city election, was the return to the open saloon. Our opponents would not concede that there waa the semblance of any virtue In the Democratic party. It was to their minds a vicious, uncouth horde prone to all vice and excesses, who reveled in disorder and confusion, and Its ascendancy meant moral, political and social degradation to the community. The Democratic leader, oame forward and made two requests of this barbarous undisciplined horde, to vote the straight Democratic ticket and to vote no license, and tbe response wa* such a* the moat decistv* la oar history, and the No-license majority trash a* Oam■bridg* bad not seen before. It wan the r**pon*t of a people to the suggestion of their leader, to rlndleato ...

NEXT YEAR'S TAX RATE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

NEXT YEAR'S TAX RATE. Alderman Coveney, last Monday evening, gave the best reason possible why the tax payers of this city should not put the business of thte city Into tbe hands of a man of no business experience or training. After recapitulating tbe city debt and fixed charges, he asserted that for the next five years tbe tax rate would be $20 on the thousand, and that it was not a theory but a condition that confronted us. Now, every dollar of the enormous city debt Cambridge has today, is the result of Non-partisan legislation, and now acknowledging the conditions, they ask the people to put back Into their hands the control of affairs, and take them out of the bands of the mayor and party, who have reduced their taxes, and given them on efficient administration at cost Do the tax-payers of this city relish the Information that In the event of Mr. Daly's selection., they will have to pay for the luxury in added taxes at the rate of $3.10 per thousand dollars of valuation? On the...

Before tbe meeting of tbe board of aldermen, on Tuesday evening Inst, was nearly finished, the Non-partisan aldermen, on Tuesday evening last and Alderman Coveney, left the chamber to attend the rally in North Cambridge. And these are tbe men who are preaching so loudly about tbelr looking closely after the city's business. It was noticeable that the Democrats stayed until all the business of the evening was finished, and this despite the fact that the opening rally of the Democratic campaign wa. In progress In Institute ball.

Donovan declaring that he wa* "ready to join under any banner or any party that will lead to his (McNamee's) defeat," might have been put—"l am willing to join under any banner or with any party that will give Donovan what he wants." How Walter Wardwell must have smiled to himself when Jerry declared last Monday night, "In politics 1 have never wavered in my life when I took a position," when he thought of the position that Donovan tried to occupy as a friend of Wardwell last year. Archibald Howe declared- Monday evening that the city of Cambridge has been governed by the courts a great deal during the past year. That this is in a measure true Is exemplified by the reply of Candidate Blodgett, when he was told that If the Democrats had attempted to swell the voting lists as the Non-partisans were doing, by adding student names, that they (the Nonpartisans) would get out an Injunction to hare It stopped. "I think that there are fools enough on our side to do It," he replied, "but I t...

THAT JOINT CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

THAT JOINT CONVENTION. Mr. Blodgett In his speech at Odd Fellows' hail last Monday evening, devoted much of his talk to theattempt of some members of the Common Council to get themselves Into the aldermanW chamber and compel the convening of a Joint convention for the purpose of making some official appointment. The point which Mr. Blodgett wanted to make was that the councllmen had' a right there and that the mayor used the police to prevent their attendance. Nothing could be farther from the truth than what Mr. Blodgett tried to show. The custom prevailing at the holding of Joint conventions, ever since the foundation of the city, has been for the Board of Aldermen to take the initiative by adopting an order to notify the Common Council that tbe board would receive them in convention for the purpose of transacting some particular business. The convening of a Joint convention has always been attended with certain formalities to which time and usage has given permanent sanction. The...

DISORDER AT NON-PARTISAN RALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 5 December 1903

DISORDER AT NON-PARTISAN RALLIES.

It Is only necessary to add that the persons against whom there were disorderly expressions of disapproval at the Non-partisan rallies were Coveney and Donovan. We doubt if any on* could influence the average person to conceal the contempt la which these two men are held by men ot both partie*. Such men a* Mr. Wardwell are listened to with respect and.attention at every meeting at which they appear. No speaker at a Non-partisan ral...
