HAPPILY ENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
HAPPILY ENDED. The compliance of the Cambridge Railroad Co. with the popular demand for a fivee cent fair, happily ends the long strife between that corporation and the public, and will give general satisfaction. It is to be regretted that the Company does not see its way clear to a continuance of the convenient transfer system; this, however, is an arrangement which may be resumed at no distent day; let us, for the present, be content with the important concession just made. There are two sides to this, as to most questions in controvesy between corporations and the public. The horserailroad company is really "between the devil and the deep sea;" on the one hand are the stockholders, demanding ample and punctual dividends; on the other, a perennially dissatiaflied public. On the whole, we have excellent reason to congratulate the Company, as well as ourselves, on the conclusion just reached. We feel bound to allude to one remaining and serious grievance; the lack of sufficient cars...
WHOLESOME LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
WHOLESOME LEGISLATION. We notice that a bill has been introduced in the present legislature, the purpose of which is to define the privileges and limit the capacities for mischief of the so-called mercantile agencies. We tried to point out. in a recent editorial, some of the dangers arising from the freedom allowed these organized systems of espionage—for they are little else^—and the absolute need of their wholesome restraint at the hsuds of the law. We find affixed to the petition, in support of the projected legislative action. the names of a number of prominent citizens, and of many heavy business concerns. We are glad to see such evidence that the mercantile community is waking up to a realization of the injustice, as well as peril to the business community, inherent in this injurious and partial tribunal of endits.

One objection to the reading of speeches on festive occasions, is the greater chance that they are not original. On« of the finest addresuced to which we ever listened from a Commander of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, on the. occasion of its anniversary, was read from manuscript. A few days after, the »ri:er •aw the same eloquent speech, lit the handwriting of its real author —a very different man from the gallant officer in command of the venerable company. The striker on the Bapti&gt;t bell in Centra! square, acts at times very mnch us though it were afflicted with "emotional insanity." A week or ten days ago. we counted the strokes up to 140, at which point m ceased to enumerate. It is rarely indeed. that this eccentric machine strik' I iv consonance with the other bells. Cheapness is by no means always synonymous wit it economy. ' Mr. Alexander Black says of Ktuersoti. iv the Brooklyn Magazine: "lie wa- ■ practical man. He had a good appetite himself. He a...

POETS AND THEIR POSSESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
POETS AND THEIR POSSESSIONS. We are assured, on the very highest au--1 thority, that it is only with the utmost ; difficulty that the possessor of earthly opulence attains everlasting life; not that iwe are any where taught, or have good ■ reason to believe that the ownership of ; property is in He.—l a sin; it is the influ- | ence too frequently exerted by wealth on tbe heart and mind—on the character of I its possessor, against which we are warned alike by the strong denunciations of scrip- •■ ture, and by the lessons of every-day experience. For one Amos Lawrence, with whom financial success and abounding worldly prosperity became actual means of grace ;.who literally held his honorably acquired wealth, as the Lord's steward, for its wise distribution among his less fortunate brothers,—for one rich man of this type, we have a hundred—yes, a thousand Vantlerbilts, Astors and Goulds, and their smaller satellites. We need uot go from our own city for illustrations of either type; so...

Death of Curtis Davis. Tbe announcement on Sunday or the death of Mr. Curli* Davit, which occurred at 10 o'clock on that morning, caused deep turprise, aa it was not - felt that Mr. Davit was so near dissolution, although it wu known that he was not in good health, and that be had been confined to his bonse for uvetal weeks. Apparently on the gain towards restored besltb, it wu thought by himself snd by bit family that be would toon be able to attend to buainess which be had been forced to relinquish late in tbe fall. After a good night's rest, be arose Sunday morning, exhibiting bit' usual cheerfulness, and partook of a hearty breakfast. Shortly after eating the morning meal he was attacked witb fainting, and in one of the swoont he quietly breathed bis last, with no indications of suffering. Mr. Davis was a native ol Bradford, N.
