A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE VOTE Cast Here on Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE VOTE Cast Here on Tuesday. Why the Democrats Are Encouraged Over the Splendid Showing Achieved, Despite the Frantic Appeals of Their Opponents The result of the state election In this city last Tuesday is highly satisfactory to the local Democracy, and all sensible deductions lead conclusively to a triumphant victory for Mayor MrNamee and the Democratic ticket In December. Looking at the face of the returns the steady growth and cohesion of the party is apparent in every district. There is nothing In tho 3ntlre vote that can give a ray of hope to the non-partisans, with the possible exception of the Rounds vote, and that vote giving it the most alluring turn, is visionary and delusive and any non-partisan plans or airy castles built upon It will fall. Every Democrat conversant with the sltnatlo.i knows it does not represent fully the nonpartisan following and that many who are Democrats and voted for Rounds will vote In December for Mayor McNamee. Out of a...

FROM GOLD TO DROSS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
FROM GOLD TO DROSS. When the Democrats of Cambridge determined to draw party lines In municipal politics, they found themselves hampered for the want of a newspaper in -which to place before the public the Democratic view of public questions. Mr. McNaftiee and few of 'the leading advocates of the new movement held a conference in which they decided to undertake the publication of a weekly paper. The result of this decision, was the formation of at company and the founding of the Cambridge Democrat This publication was hailed with delight by all true Democrats. It made them rejoice in the fact that at last their feelings and grievances were being voiced in public print in a manner calculated to attract the attention of ail fair minded citizens.

ARE YOU A DEMOCRAT? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
ARE YOU A DEMOCRAT? Some one has said that human speech is a means of concealing one's thoughts. Judging from the remarks of some of our Cambridge politicians a* compared with their conduct, we • are inclined to the belief that there is much truth in the assertion. There is a certain group of men in this city calling themselves Democrats, who bear no more resemblance to the genuine article than does a "gold brick" to the treasure which It Is supposed to represent They are all men who naturally belong to the Democratic party but their attitude In the present municipal contest between the Democrats and the Republlcan-non-partisans Is such as to brand them forever as hypocrites of the deepest dye. They call themselves Democrats yet . In the same sentence they declare their allegiance to another political party which has for a generation ignored the Democrats as if they did not have the rights of even ordinary citizens. They my they are Democrata yet they lend their aid to destroy the v...
THE MISCHIEF-MAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
THE MISCHIEF-MAKER. The municipal campaign is almost upon us. The caucuses come on the 24th inst, and then will be retired the button-hole communicant whose whlspered slanders poison, even while they fall to convince the candid mind. Then, when the candidates have been formally elected, the open campaign will begin, and the bush-whackers and guerillas will cease to be dangerous, except to the party they claim allegiance to. It is worthy of notice that the cause of the Democratic party in Cambridge always develops strength as soon as the campaign becomes an open one. The mischief-maker is no longer able to prosecute his contemptible calling with impunity from contradiction. He is in his element only when. In tho absence of public declarations from the platform, he can go about distilling slanders from the gossip of his own brewing. It is the mischief-maker thatr the Democratic party in Cambridge has most to fear from. Let the campaign be opened early, and that functionary will cease ...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
Why have the non-partisans selected. Mr. Daly as their candidate for mayor? Mr. Daly possesses not one qualification for the office that every other candidate considered by their committee during the year did not possess in a far greater degree in education and experience in affairs. Consequently they haive net chosen him because he was the best-fitted above all others, or because there were none else who would care to have the office. "Therefore, the usual qualifications hitherto expected in a candidate having been set aside, or their Importance reduced to a secondary consideration, the motive for such an act must be of an unusual nature and must portend an unusual exigency. The question at once arises, what is that exigency and Is it such as can justify a responsible party to put forth for the suffrage of the citizens for the highest office at their command, the man best fitted of the candidates for the office? To answer that question affirmatively would be an insult to the Intell...
WHAT THEY HAVE DECRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
WHAT THEY HAVE DECRIED. Just as we go to press we find rumors afloat that the Non-Partlsan machine has put Its foot down on the aspirations of several gentlemen who desired to strive for the board of aldermen, and have flatly refused to permit any more papers to be filed than there aro candidates to be elected. Whatever truth there Is In the street talk of last evening, It Is certain that many people are talking of high-handed proceedings. A peculiar feature of the situation Is that on opening the papers filed they decided to call for new nominations. The reason alleged for this move Is that as the city has adopted the Luce taw, a new.gmtf "* necessary. The original papers gave but little evidence of the success of the attempt to broaden, as John W. Coveaey was Daley's only companion of Irish descent. Dr. Cahlll. who was thrown down last year, it is said, refused to be a victim this year. There teems to be no doubt but machine methods of a very advanced order Is to be the rule of No...
WHERE IS FITZSIMMONS? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
WHERE IS FITZSIMMONS? One of the surprises of the week ox-cured last evening when the Nonpartisan domination papers were opened. It was generally understood tint the Non-Partisans were to be exclusive in their liberality rather than In their discriminations and that least of all no signs of lndlference towards the Catholic portion of the people would be manifested. Dr. Fltzslmmons waa the only member of the school board who Is a Catholic and no one thought the Non-Partisans would fail to nominate him, but when the papers were opened' his name was' among the missing. Those whose papers were filed being Messrs. Piper, Russell, Lew and Mrs. Chase, Fltzslmmons' place being left vacant. It is also certain that Donovan Is to be opposed for nomination for assessor. Evidently if the, Non-Partisans have ' loaded" thell»j&gt; ticket at the top they will not da-It at the bottom. . ::
POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 7 November 1903
POINTS. In a rural district in Scotland many years ago was a school teacher who - was very fond of dwelling on the omnipotence of God before the school. On one occasion, after a very fervid dissertation, he exclaimed, "Can any of you, boys, tell me anything that the great Creator of this universe could not do? I will give a penny to the lad that can think of anything that the great God could not do." A little - freckled faced lad in the room, whd was never noted for anything very" bright, came to hla feet, and the teacher astounded.-said. "Well, Sandy, have you made a discovery? out.with it, man, and let us hear It." and the lad in a piping voice replies "please, sir, He could not make our Will's mouth any bigger without shifting his ears." Daly's nomination came near being Just as impossible. It Is said that the Non-Partisans received a very severe shock when Dr. Caiiill refused to be again sacrificed for the purpose of allowing the above party to show its liberality. There were se...

CAMBRIDGE HEALTH BOARD—MADE EXCELLENT RECORD-ALL APPOINTEES OF MAYOR M'NAMEE—REFLECT CRED IT ON ADMINISTRATION The Cambridge board of health has been very active during the present year and has accomplished much. The health board Is an Important function of a municipal government. The legislature has provided that each city and town shall have a board of health to consist of three one of whom shall be a physician. In order for a health board to meet with success, It Is necessary that its members should have skill and tact, and one great essential is, that tlhey should be adapted for the work. A good training is also a needed qualification as It is necessary for the members to put Into operation the laws and regulations pertaining to nuisances, Infectious diseases and the like, and a knowledge of hygiene, and . kindred branches are requisite. The duty of a health board is to preserve the public health; Or, in other words to prevent disease, especially that of an lnfectuous nature. An...
