Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
Mayor McNamee's re-election is everywhere conceded. The only danger Is that Democrats will be too certain of the result and that they will not make the slight sacrifice of time necessary to go to the polls. It is of vital importance that every Democrat shall vote next Tuesday. You should not only vote yourself but': you should see to it that every man whom you can influence votes also. Now that victory is within our grasp let us not loose it through over-confidence. Let u#|not be satisfied with a bare majority. Make it a grand tremendous sweep. Donovan and Coveny are also beaten. Let us bury them forever. •&gt;, -

THEY CAME FROM MANY CITIES AND STATES. Some Facts About Student Registration. What the "Purist" Party Resort to In Order to Swell the Voting List in the Doubtful Wards of the City. A large number of students of Harvard College have had themselves registered to vote at the city election. Nearly all of them claim to live in Ward 8. They were put on the list merely through the exertions of Secretary Samuel D. Elmore, who is a candidate for the common council from Ward 8, and Philip P. Sharpies, whom the mayor refused to reappoint to an office because of his offensive partisanship. The names of the young men who are registered in this way, together with certain significant facts bearing upon the question of their real places ef residence, are subjoined. The record poults conclusively to the desperate methods which the Non-parti-san purists will adopt when they think there Is danger of losing an election without them. We don't know how many of these thoughtless students who have come her...

FOR DR. FITZSIMONS. (Cambridge Press.) v r- — , -,-- »- After one has Inspected the grand work going on at tbe Putnam wjwol in East Cambridge to its evening classes it can be readily understood why the Non-partisan women have deoided to support the Democratic candidate for the school committee, Dr. Philip M.

OUR HEALTH BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
OUR HEALTH BOARD. ' 'The Board of Health of 1003 is one of the most competent health boards that Cambridge has ever had. The three members took office the early part of the year and showed at once that they were interested and fully competent for the work. Their skill and tact In handling matters was commended generally. The board elected Dr. Farnham as the medical inspector, and made some changes, the most Important of which were the appointment of Dr. Sennott, a graduate of the Harvard Medical School, to be city bacteriologist and Dr. McGlrr, also a graduate of the Harvard Medical School, to be physician at the diphtheria hospital. Both of. these appointees have shown beyond question that they are thoroughly competent and give greater satisfaction to the medical fraternity and to the people than their predecessors. Many Important measures were passed by the board which have not only been commented upon favorably in this city, but In other cities. The board provided' for notice In ...
NON-PARTISAN BLINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
NON-PARTISAN BLINDNESS. Jerry Donovan, in his peregrinations throughout the city, takes that short step that divides the sublime from the ridiculous with such abject abnegation that common decency and regard for the fitness of things must suggest to every one that he is the last man who should be chosen to a place of honor and responsibility. A principle forcibly enunciated by the Republican party in the past was, that the office should seek the man, that a public office, being a public trust, the man to hold It up to that Ideal should be a trustworthy man. If a trustworthy man must be one who Is honorable and consistent in his dealings with his fellow-men, the political honor and consistency of Jdrry Donovan cannot be regarded as indicative of an honorable man, and his election can only mean a low standard of political morals. In the first place, Donovan's conduct today Is a positive contradiction of his conduct in the past Whenever he appealed before now to the people of old Ward ...
DONOVAN'S WITTICISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
DONOVAN'S WITTICISMS. At a rally held last week, Jerry Donovan sold! that during Mayor McNamee's first year be was making nominations, when he knew they would not be confirmed, but would not nominate him be .luse he knew he would be confirmed, ' If Mr. Donovan had any sense he ' would not, at this time, be telling any such stuff. The Non-partisan majority ' In the board Of aldermen that year, laid down the principle that they would not ' make any confirmations when there were no vacancies and lived up to It without deviation throughout the year. Many men, far more capable than Mr. Donovan, were nominated by the mayor, only to suffer defeat by the Nohpartisan aldermen. In one case Alderman Carstein went so far as to say that ' 90 per cent, of his inclination was with the nominee, but that the other 10 percent controlled his vote and Judgment, and accordingly voted against the nominee. Why, then, should they make an ' exception In favor of Mr. Donovan? ' Many rumors were afloat concer...
DANA ON "BROADENING." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
DANA ON "BROADENING." Richard H. Dana, In his speech last Monday, felt happy because he found evidence of broadening in the Non-par-tisan ticket He said that he was an American and that we don't want "Scotch-Americans, nor German-Amer-icans, nor Italian-Americans, nor French-Americans, nor—nor IrishAmericans," and he expressed the hope, that as we grow larger and greater we will broaden more. But Mr. Dana wishes, notwithstanding his Americanism and his hope to bring about the defeat of tbe man and party whioh compelled them, much against their will, to broaden. And he seeks the co-oper-ation of the people against whom their narrowness was directed to help In that defeat. All the evidence of broadening, all symptoms of liberality, manifested by those people today, have been wrung from them with the same willingness that a man gives up a tooth to a dentist and that old molar would be In the Non-partisan mouth today If there was not such a man as John H. St McNamee to put the forceps I...
THE FIGHT WANING. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
THE FIGHT WANING. A significant change seems to have coma over some of the Non-partisan organs of late and in fact over their whole campaign. Our Harvard square contemporary started out with Mr, Daly's race'and faith as a hobby horse on which it expected to ride him Into City Hall, but It has abandoned It entirely. Perhaps the SENTINEL'S pounding and'exposure of its purpose bad a salutary effect; be that as It may, we are pleased to notice the changes. We also noticed a correspondent in its columns devoting considerable space to race and religion, and promising a continuance of his work for Mr. Daly. He, too, has dropped out of sight. With all the leading men of the past taking no Interest in the campaign and the Nonpartisan papers dropping the fight, the position Mr. Daly finds himself In, leading Donovan and Ooveaey about town, is not to l&gt;e envied. There are people who say that he never thought much of tbe pair, anyway, and when this contest is over he will think less ...
STOLBA ON LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
STOLBA ON LABOR. At the Democratic rally in Armory hall, Brattle square, last week, Mr. Wm. Stolba of the cigaimakers' union Was one of the speakers, and in opening said that he wanted it known that he was not there at the request of the campaign managers, but at the request of organized- labor, which believed that the present administration had shown more regard for the welfare of the worklngmen than those that had preceded it tor many years. He defended the superintendent of streets and said that it was not necessary for any worklngman to bring baskets of grapes and vegetables to the superintendent to hold his Job. He read from a book published by and in the interest of organised labor before Mr. Shea was ever thought of for superintendent of our street department, wherein he was commended for his many efforts in the interest of the common people. Mr. Stolba Is an old member of labor organizations, and his views of the present administration from a workingman's standpoint will com...
JERRY "CRAWLS." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
JERRY "CRAWLS." Candidate Donovan, at Prospect hall, on Mondayvevening last, made the statement from the platform that Chairman Facey of the Democratic city committee had hired two men to go to the Non-partisan rally in Bast Cambridge last week: and raise a disturbance at the meeting. After the Prospect hall rally, before he had left the hall, he was told, in the presence of a number of his Non-partisan friends, that he could name nny charity that would be benefited to the extent of one hundred dollars If he would prove his statement And what was the reply of this man, who Is crying throughout the length and breadth of Cambridge that the Democrats are attacking him, and misrepresenting him at every meeting. It was: "I can't prove it" Yet he made It publicly, with all the earnestness of which he Is capable, and at the en* of a list of charges or attacks. And this man thinks that any of his statements will be believed, but when he is asked to prove even one of them he says that he can...
THE BRIBE TAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 12 December 1903
THE BRIBE TAKER. "The man who said openly to the world that a man who went to the legislature and didn't take the 'stuff' wssnt fit to be In the legislature; the man who said in my hearing at dinner one night, that while he was there he took the 'stuff,' and didn't care who knew lt'J These were the words of Mayor McNamee, and the person to whom he referred as the man who "took the stuff," was Mr. Coveney, the candidate for alderman on the Non-parti-san ticket President Roosevelt speaking of corruption In the postal service has this to say: "No crime calls for sterner reprobation than the crime of the corruptlonlst In public life and the man who seeks to corrupt him. The bribe-giver and the bribe-taker are both equally guilty. Both alike sin against the primary law of the State's safety. All questions of difference In party policy sink into Insignificance when the people of this country are brought face to face with a question like this, which lies at the root of honest and decent go...
