WHY THE STRIKES FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

WHY THE STRIKES FAILED. At the uemi-monlhly meeting of the Central Labor Union, a few days since, the committee appointed to inquire into the cause of the failures of the South Boston and Cambridge horse railroad strikes, submitted the following report: "The -employ.** were defeated by tbe untmployed, who are anxious to obtain work on any terms.

THE GRANITE COTTERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

THE GRANITE COTTERS' STRIKE. The granite'cutters' strike in Cambridge and vicinity, which has been dragging along since January, seems to be as far from settlement as ever. About a week ago the Operatives' Union, in a circular to the press, asserted that they had tried to settle the matter by arbitration, but that the employers refused to accept. To this the secretary of the Manufacturers' Association retorted that arbitration was proposed by their committee and not by tho operatives, and that the president of the Granite Cutters' Union declined in language usually represented by dashes to permit "a shoemaker to make prices for a granite cutter." • Their statements and counter-statements brought about a meeting of tho tyvo committees in the rooms of the State Board of Arbitration, whbh it transpired that the operatives would only consent to arbitra. tion after tho employers had discharged the non-union men now working for them. Like the old lady who was perfectly willing to let her ...

THE RIGHT NOT TO SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

THE RIGHT NOT TO SMOKE. The right to smoke is almost universally conceded. Doctors disagree as to its utility, and there is an active society whose purpose Is to lessen and finally abolish smoking altogether. But tha'. a man may smoke if he will, nobody denies. The right not to smoke is not at present so clearly defined. One may not enjoy tobacco in any form. The smoke of it may be an offense to one's sensibilities or stomach. One may be as resolute as possible In objecting to the fumes of even the choicest cigar. But to be free from smoke—'.here's the rub. The smoker smo'tes. The non-smoker protests, but is smoked. He cin't escape. On the street, in the cars, on the steamers, at public dinners, in art galleries, at a friend's house, the fragrance of tie weed is everywhere present, and discomfort for the nonsmoker Inevitably follows. One of the most striking illustrations of the pervasive tendency of the habit is Ihe little but Insurious smoking apartment which has gradually evolved...

AN AUTHORS' CLUB IN BOSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

AN AUTHORS' CLUB IN BOSTON. During the week Attention has been called to a movement that has been fulsome time contemplated towards the establishment, of an authors' club in Boston. The elder authors were Consulted, and cordially consented lo lend their influence iv favor of the new organization, though, of course, it. was expected that they would not be very active members. The active spirit in the enterprise was the Hey. Arthur Wentwortli Katon, well known to many of our readers. He thought that he was working for something that would ho useful and attractive to men of letters, and doubtless ho was. His enterprise was a worthy one, and it will probably succeed in spite of the quite unnecessary stir that has been made in aome of the papers. Tin whole matter Is now in the hands of gentlemen who may be depended upon not to he rash; but, in truth, it is a subject, thai- interests the authors themselves, and Into which we do not care to pry. It is well for men having common interests t...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

Our paragraph last week In relation to tho proposed amendment of tho CambrhTjfe charter was written under a mls- apprehension. The bill before the legislature provides that the Cambridge board of aldermen shall consist of two members from each ward, who shall be elected at large. The object is to prevent one ward from having an undue influence in the board. Tho bill was ordered to a third reading in the Senate on Wednesday, by a vote of 17 to 16, tbe president giving the casting vote. Senator Alger voted against the bill, having previously spoken earnestly against it, saying that the city government was opposed to it, and that public sentiment in this city had not been shown to favor it. It Is as reasonable to hope that a popular subscription will raise money enough to build a new and adequate library building, as it would be to expect a new high school building or the bridge to Boston to be erected as the result of passing the hat. A handsome and capacious library, built at the exp...

Among the Books. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

Among the Books. "Juauita," the posthumous novel of Mrs. Mary Mann, just published by D. Lothrop Company, is a story of tbe fortunes of a young Moorish woman whose name gives the book its title. It is a tragedy of the old slave times in Cuba, and is filled with stories of all the horrors of that regime. Tbe story opens with a rose-colored view of an African valley into which a gang of slave-drivers suddenly dashes and carries away the happy and Innocent inhabitants. Imagination enters largely into this description no doubt, and we are pretty sure that it would be somewhat difficult to identify the valley described, or, perhaps, to match its innocent inhabitants. The slaves thus kidnapped are taken to Cuba, where they and we are introduced to the circumstances of slavery in its most offensive aspect. A wedding bet ween two of the newcomers is performed by s Catholic priest, iv the house of the wealthy slave-driver who owned them all. This mail, rich as he was, delighted in going with...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 April 1887

The present week is notable for the first production on any stage of a drama by a favorite author, the first production in Boston of a melodrama, and the special appearance of one of Boston's old favorites. Mr. Edgar Fawcef, has produced several literary works of recognized merit, and Boston is now called upon to pass judgment upon his new play, "The Earl." The poetry of printed prose may charm the ear of the reader, and yet the same material worked over Into dramatic blank verse may lose ninety per cent, of its valuation, and fall as flat as a hackneyed melodrama. With all due respect to Mr. Fawcett's talent as an author, even considerate justice must declare his new play by no means a success. True, many of its llnes.have literary merit— anything from his pen could hardly lack that.—but Ibe ability to write literature and put it into acceptable shape for the stage is a talk which few authors have succeeded in, and Mr. Fawcett need not feel over-de-spondent at his inability to be.c...

For the Ladies. The rage for thin and clinging fabrics is even greater than last season, and promises to be even universal. Tbe popular combination dresses promise to be those of cashmere draped over silk skirts, as they are Imported in great variety. The shepherd's crook is the popular handle for sunshades, and is in natural wood, with a loop or bent crook, about which is tied a wide ribbon bow. Jackets and scarf in mtios are the dressy wraps to use with various costumes, the jackets being made of exquisite camels-hair stuffs, with revers thrown back like those of a man's coat. Young ladies will wear turbans with black lace crown, jet brim close around the head, and a knot in front made up of black cocks' plumes and black nioirc ribbons tied together with pale green, blue, or old-rose ribbon. Polonaises are seen on many of the new dresses, some of which are draped with a short punier on one side aud long on the other, or elso they have an apron front, or one sido Is like a redlngot...

At Mr. E. Burt Phillips's. Whatever other faults American women may hive, it is generally admitted by foreigners that they dress remarkably well. French women are flashy and aitlficial Iv their attire, and English women, although they dress seuslbly enough, have poor taste—all but a few of the upper clauses look dowd/. One reason why the American women of all clashes are so far ahead of their sex In other countries in tastefulneßi of clothing, Is because their wearing apparel Is manufactured for them by persons who make a business of securing the best designs, the mo-t suitable materials, and have the art of puttlug these together Id an artistic manner. The business of furuisnin/ dresses and wraps ready made has become so enormous within the last few years, and the trade la hi tbe hands of Mich competent persons, that, even if a woman's taste is defective, it la almon Impossible for her to purchase tll-titting or unbecoming toilets.
