COVENEY'S HYPOCRISY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 16 January 1904

COVENEY'S HYPOCRISY. "I have no enemies to punish or friends to reward." These words were uttered by that notoriously Insincere man. Alderman Coveney, after his election to the presidency of the board of aldermen. Scarcely had the echo of his untruthful words died away before hla scheming brain, defeated a custom that had been established for many years. City governments have, on Inauguration day, adjourned to meet the following Tuesday week, but Mr. Coveney who has become so much interested in the affairs of the city, asked that it adjourn to meet the following night. His object to adjourn to meet this early was, In our opinion, not because he so loved to be attentive to the duties of the city, but because he had an enemy whom he desired to punish. Mr. Coveney has "felt a change of heart in his desire to do committee work. Last rear when his other Insincere statement, "I hereby resign the presidency," was accepted by the board he became so furious that he ordered the arrest of two ...

MISMANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 16 January 1904

MISMANAGEMENT. The 'iiaiiagciiieiit of the tire department during tbe last two weeks has been to our minds very negligent Sufficient lioraes have uot been provided to draw the apparatus through tbe deep suow and the hydrants have not been taken care of properly; though .the latter fault cannot be attributed to .the Are .department, as they came under the care of tbe wuter board. Tbe same number of horses were provided fur the engine aud ladder companies, weighing 0,000 to 8,000 pounds, as for the chemical engines, which weigh only from 2,500 to 3,000 pounds. Anyone should realize that Jt takes more power to druw three tons than It does to ut aw one and a half tons, and why the prop- erty of citizens of this city should be exposed to the dangers they have been during the past few weeks we do not know. In response to .an alarm from liox 73 last Wednesday morning, Udder No. 1, drawn by three horses, was forced to allow them to real three tiaies before It reached the vicinity of the lir...

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 16 January 1904

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. We trust the members of the city council will realize tbe Importance of this office. Men have been put into this office who have been totally unfitted for It. The city fathers too often look upon this board as a berth in which to put some "has been," some men who have seen better days In the political world and whose worthlessness is recognized, but whose hankerlug after office must be pampered. Oh! give him a position as Overseer of the Poor. Is he qualilleil for the duties of the position? No. that has nothing to do with it He wants an unpaid commission. Stick him on that board. Gentlemen of the city council, stop putting men on that board who never have had any interest In the poor unfortunate. Heartless men can do too much harm there.- Select 'men who have some sympathy for the duties of the position,

A FLIMSY EXCUSE. When ti-e nomination of Geo. M. Clukas, as superintendent of streets, was received by the board Of ablermen. Mr. Coveney gave as a reason that the rules should be suspended so ihat .Mr, cliikas mighf assist in ■ ihe making out of the budget for the Coming year. Mr. Coveney would ilke to give the public the Impression thst Supt. Shea could not make out the estimates. Mr. Coveney is perhaps the only one In the city who fathers such a thought. Mayor Daly, on the tltn inst.. sent a letter to Supt. Shea asking the latter to have his department estimates submitted to him not later than the --'nth in3t. When Mr. Coveney was making this Insincere statement Supt. Shea had his estimates completed and It now merely awaits one estimate from the city engineer. You are wrong. Mr. Coveney. John T.

"GRAFTING." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 16 January 1904

"GRAFTING." Said Brother W. -I- O'Brien. In his ' recent sojourn In Massachusetts, when the Sam Parks affair was mentioned to him: "In my official capacity as sheriff of the great city of New York, throughout my full .term of two years, I have been required to take but one or two labor men to prison for 'grafting,' whereas something like 35 lawyers have | been taken over for the same purpose as well as half that many preachers, ' yet we have heard nothing of stopping the profession ot law. although quite a bunch of that profession went to pay penalties for crookedness, nor have we • seen one word In the papers that preaching shall cease because quite a number of that craft found their way to a Certain state Institution, and why we have been told labor organizations should cease to have business officials because one or two hijve gone wrong is a mystery that needs further explanation."—Granite Cutters' Journal.
