'TIS SAD BUT TRUE THAT RETURNS GIVE A Majority for Mayor to Judge Daly And That the Democrats Will Have to Get Along With Only Three Members of the Board of Aldermen the Coming Year. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
'TIS SAD BUT TRUE THAT RETURNS GIVE A Majority for Mayor to Judge Daly And That the Democrats Will Have to Get Along With Only Three Members of the Board of Aldermen the Coming Year. "It was a hard fight and one that it was a pleasure to be in just for the sake of the fight, apart from the result," can be applied to the campaign just past, and while the result was not just what the SENTINEL would have wished or either what it expected, it cannot now be helped and must be accepted as one of the fortunes of war. (But wait until next year.) While the Democrats expected to win by about the same plurality as they had last year, the real surprise of the conteat came to the Non-partisans in not getting the 1,500 majority that they so fondly hoped sad expected. It was so close that it was anyone's victory until the last precinct was in and counted The Democrats voted straight for the most part and the Non-partlsani swallowed their ticket whole, no matter how nauseating. Following is a detai...

AS USUALLY THE CASE School Board Not Satisfied With the Mayor's Appointments—Magnifying Classes Used to Find Flaws. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
AS USUALLY THE CASE School Board Not Satisfied With the Mayor's Appointments—Magnifying Classes Used to Find Flaws. The Cambridge school board Thursday evening adopted orders requesting Mayor McN'umee to remove Kdmnnd R. Hherldan, janitor of the Morse school, and William G. Sheridan, Janitor of the Roberts school, because of alleged Inefficiency, and that a new appointment lie made in place of Timothy J. Mahoney, whom the board at the previous meeting had refused to confirm. The board also refused to confirm the mayor's appointment of Hugh Keegan to be janitor of the new Fletcher school, because the building was In the hands of the contractor. Janitors were also barred from being call members of the fire department. Janitors were the chief subject for discussion, and It proved quite Interesting. Mr. Gage, for the committee on school houses, started off by offering an oilier that hereafter no call member of the Ore department shall be appointed Janitor of a sclioolbouse. Mr. Thurston...
THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
THE ELECTION. Deoiucratlc defeat does not mean Democratic death. The Republicans are entitled to their period of jubilation. The name they have adopted to conceal their Identity in city politics has proven effective to lure enough Democrats to defeat the Democratic party. But the Democratic party still lives and will live to enjoy many a victory In the time ot come. The Non-partisan victory this year Is not so great and sweeping as the Democratic victory of last year. Democrats found that victory had its burdens no less wearisome than defeat. Democrats who turned upon their party to rend It, because they did not receive the choice plums, will now seek from the Non-partisan party that which was refused them at the hands of their own party.. Their demands upon the old party were exorbitant and outrageous. Their demands upon the new party will pass beyond all bounds of reason. But if they are denied, there will be rebellion. Any party which holds its tenure at the mercy of the politica...
THE NEW CONDITION [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
THE NEW CONDITION Now that the contest is over and Daly Is apparently the victor, we congratulate him on hie success. We feel that It Is but right to say that he conducted an aggressive campaign. We know that he was forced to associate himself with some whose post-methods and character were not up to his Idea of propriety, but his situation forced on him the necessity of abandoning any notions of fastidlty. For Mr. Daly himself, we must say that he is better than his party. We know that there to much feeling against liim among those who were his former associates, for leading himself to the attempt to break up the party to which be rightly belongs, and which be should, for many reasons, support, but we recognise that 'Mr. Daly had no other avenue open to him to the goal of his ambition, bat by acting as he did, and we have no doubt but there are others who would, or could be Induced to nibble at so tempting a bait. He knew well that his adopted party would much rather hare some one ...
J. FRANK FACEY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
J. FRANK FACEY. Chairman Facey of the Democratic city committee, although at this writing not able to congratulate himself on winning a city campaign for the third time, is not without many reasons for satisfaction. When Mr. Facey took bold of the party management it was at Its lowest ebb, without any one having confidence in Its ultimate triumph. Disorganization was the order In all, but the strongholds where the individual ambition of many aspirants kept it In working order, although not always successful. Looking back , over the three years Unit he has given to the party's service, he finds today a strong party In good working order, and although defeated, showing a much larger strength than in any of its victories. In that time two municipal campaigns have been won, and a strong representative district captured from the Republicans. In all sections of the city, the Democratic voting strength has been greatly Increased and the party, which was at the beginning of his administrati...
DEMOCRACY IN MASSACHUSETTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
DEMOCRACY IN MASSACHUSETTS. The following, which Is an eNtract from a letter sent by Col. Coston to the chairman of the Democratic city and own commit tees throughout the State, so thoroughly expresses the condition of affairs In Massachusetts at the present time that It is worth reprinting. He wrote: "That we failed to win does not In any way take from the fact that with the exception of one presidential election, the Democratic party has been brought to Its high-water mark In the state, and made a real opposition to the party In power. "Defeat does not change our faith In the Issues put forth by the party. As far as Its Influence on national legislation is concerned Massachusetts has become a cipher, politically; Its business Interests have been neglected; Its finances hnve been so managed that It* debt Is out of all proportion to every other state, causing Increased taxes: and equally Important to every believer In good government, our standard of public morals and official condu...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
Is the superintendent of streets to be Maskell, who It was said was promised It last year, or is It to be Jimmy Cullune, who is said to have been promised it this? There seems to be already a merry liattle for the presidency of the common council between Messrs. Meyers and Elmore. The promises for committeeships have long ago been exhausted by the gentleman from the upper end of the city. Three aldermen for the Democrats and eight for the Non-partisans just reverses the condition of last year. Will the former come out at the end of tbe your with four? The latter did this year. Wardwell telephoning on Sunday evening that "Lehan was unqualifiedly with us," seems to have been s|Miken rrom a full knowledge of the facts. Perhaps Lehan was only enquiring why he had said it when he was looking for Wardwell on Thursday, and was closeted with him In Sheriff Fnlrbairn's private office later In the day. Tbe election returns unmistakably remind us of the words of anguish wrung from the heart of...
A REFUTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
A REFUTATION. We, the undersigned, who sent out a card recommending Dr. Fltzslmons as a proper person for re-election to the school board!, wish to make the following statement: A rumor was persistently circulated on Monday and Tuesday last, that Mrs. Adams had expressed regret at the action and would be glad to recall our advocacy of Dr. Fltzslmons. This rumor had no foundation whatever. It was unworthy of the. work wuich women tried to do. We made careful Investigation, consulting members of the school board, and we never for a moment doubted l&gt;r. Fitssimon's character and capacity. In making the attempt to retain him on the board, as one who had given years of faithful service to the dry, we were acting In the part of true Non-partisan-ship and standing by the methods of civil service reform. ELLEN F. ADAMS, HELEN L. BROOKS. SARAH WELD CAHRET. SUSAN H. HINCKLEY, ELIZABETH HOAR BTORER, MARY WARE ALLEN.
