HOSPITAL FOR CONSUMPTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
HOSPITAL FOR CONSUMPTIVES. It is gratifying to note that our board of health has recommended a hospital for consumptives. This recommendation was contained in the report of the board for the year 1908, recently sent to the city council. There can be no question but that a hospital of this nature would prevent, to a great extent, the'spreading of this loathsome disease and thereby much pain and suffering would be avoided and many lives saved. Of course the object would be to prevent the spread of the disease and to cure. if possible, any persons afflicted with the same. To this hospital all persons suffering with consumption, of whatever race, creed, or condition would be taken and cared for. This has been done heretofore by private institutions and no doubt much commendable work has been accomplished In this regard; but this Is a matter In which we should not trust to luck but should depend rather on systematic and organized effort to wipe out this terrible affliction. It would be a...
DR. WEEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
DR. WEEKS. We commend most heartily the uctlon of the board of aldermen in laying the nomination of Dr. Weeks over for another week and if they had defeated it they would be doing a much greater service. We unhesitatingly sny that it is in our opinion one of the worst appointments of a professional man ever made In Cambridge. We do not cure whether Dr. Wetherbee holds the position but we do hope that whoever will hold it will be one who has the confidence of the medical fraternity and citizens generally. We do not believe that such Is theNase with Dr. Weeks. Every one believes, the appointment a political one nnd lf\ihe exigencies or the Xon-partisan party is such, arter their fierce attack on Hie health department in the campaign^-that they must make such an appointment now,— their cry of city before party was a most disftonest one. \ Of all men a physician shoulckjn every respect be above suspicion. Whether right or wrong this is not&gt; claimed for Dr. Weeks and ir the cu...
DR. WETHERBEE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
DR. WETHERBEE. Last week the Tribune said: "Of course, a man who accepled n nomination to a vacancy caused by death or voluntary resignation and who has done his work a,/iy and for'the good of the city, can expect considerate treatment and under the Non-partisan administration will receive It." Thla Is buncombe and the Tribune knows It. I hero have been at least two cases where men accepted nominations to a vacancy caused by death who have not received considerate treatment. Dr. Wether bee accepted such a nomination and so far as any one has yet heard did good' work, yet he has not been renominated under the .Non-parti-san administration, and when the person who has been nominated Is considered, and the reason why he has been chosen remembered, the hollowness of the Tribune's assurance Is apparent. We believe that Dr. Wetherbee is many times the superior of Dr. Weeks, and that the best Interest of the health department would be conserved by returning the former to the board of healt...
GOVERNMENT BY CAUCUS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
GOVERNMENT BY CAUCUS. Last year the Non-Partlsan politicians and their newspapers howled at the thought of the city affairs being run by caucus determined action. The Democratic members who attended a caucus with the mayor pr(or to the assembling of either branch of the city government were severely criticised. The public then supposed these critics were honest in their censure but every day the same public is learning that the Xon-part.sans pursue one doctrine lust prior to election and- only abandon It to adopt another as soon as they have secured the votes of the quillihie public Today we find these same Nonpartisans attending a caucus in wnich they decide what action shall be taken on the various subjects coming before them. Today these men gather prior to the assembling of the city council, and there learn their orders as decided upon by the machine. This method enables a minority to dictate the policy of the government. As one example the number In both branches of the city co...
DICTATING TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
DICTATING TERMS. What a humiliating spectacle! The mayor of the good government league for Mr. Daly was their choice, compelled to dicker with a "Bill Devery" as to who shall be appointed upon the Inspector's force. It comes to us tram \rcllable authority that the mayor is keeping the "trade" made with the pnlitichin of the force ana nan allowed this politician. Inspector-Hurley, to name his cßttfce. The charter places the. mayor aKtbe-feead.Bf the.""pollen force.. He shouidNiot. allow anY man* usurp his place. It looks at the present time that, for the service rendered by Hurley In the last campaign that the entire force must be revolutionized in order to make way for his promotion and that of bis mend. Officer Cox has served on the Inspector's force as has "officer Gordon. Both of these men were candidates tor the vacancy but promotion was denied them to satisfy the demands of the spoilsman. Will Ihe slaughter now going on In the tone continue until other good, faithful officials ...
NON-PARTISAN ARRAIGNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
NON-PARTISAN ARRAIGNMENT. The Chronicle gave an awful scoring to the three retiring members of tne old board or overseers of the poor. We use the word "old" Tor three reasons, the three men were old In the service of the lioard. old In point of years, and old In Ideas, we refer to Messrs. Walker, ltulloek and Mlllan. With pleasure we give to our readers the exact wording of the Chronicle: "The board of overseers of the poor will not lie What It lots been, for the new members are not like the old ones. This Ih not snylng Hint It will be poorer. We see no reason for such n prediction. Tlie deserving poor are not likely to suffer at the hands of the new lioard, and the city's money will not be wnsted." What, n scoring lo give this ancient and retiring trio. If Messrs. Walker, Kiillock and Mlllan can tlnd much comfort In such an article they are welcome to It. John T. Shea should now fee] satisfied that tbe stand which be took against these three men has been at last endorsed by others....
SKATING FOR THE WEALTHY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
SKATING FOR THE WEALTHY. This administration will soon be known as the government of discriminations. One by one the Instances are accumulating wherein flesh Is made of one and tirsh of the other. The aristocratic water board now comes (o the front and gives us a first class example or class legislation. Early in the year the Democratic board oi I'ai'ii commissioners built a rink on the Cambridge Common for the purpose of affording the public the opportunity of enjoying the sport of skating. Money has been Invested In the construction of that rink, the money can be put to good uses merely by watering the area enclosed therein, not an expensive undertaking for it Is not necessary to make a pond up to one's neck in order to skate upon it, just enough to form a coat or lee sufficient to cover the uneven regularities of the ground. The amount of water would be trifling and the cost of the water too small to prevent Buch a proposition. The water board states that It cannot afford to wate...
THE PLEASURES OF BOYHOOD DENIED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
THE PLEASURES OF BOYHOOD DENIED. The boys of the city are up in arms over their being denied the use of certain streets for coasting purposes. All of us look back with pleasure to our younger days when coasting was one of the most enjoyable of boyhood sports. In addition to the pleasure this form of amusement affords is that immense benefit that must come to one's health In exercise in the open air. The benefits due to such healthy activity cannot be measured by the hand of man. Many a boy has had his life preserved by the health giving properties of this amusement. Of course some accidents happen, but even these should not be the cause of the denial of such boyhood pleasure as comes from the const. Certain streets could be reserved for this purpose and all teams could be kept therefrom, the public would use extra precaution and with proper care the boys would be well pleased and no Injuries occur.

CHAIRMAN PATRICK CROWLEY. (me of tho first acts ot the new board or overseers of the poor, which will meet with public approval is the wise selection which they made as to Ihe member who should preside over their deliberations. It is only proper that a man who is "Intensely Interested- In his work should be honored wlllrmrrh-a-high office. Patrick Crowley has brought with him to the position of overseer of the poor that business training which has enabled him to reach tho successful position which he now enjoys. That business Judgment he has given to the city's affairs. It was a goood financial Investment to elect filch a man.

THE SAINT JOHN LITERARY INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
THE SAINT JOHN LITERARY INSTITUTE. This year will observe the 50th anniversary of this great society. The word great does not refer mainly to tbe large membership but to tbe Immense amount of good that this society haa been in uplifting the working people of old East Cambridge. It Is not our Intention to give Its history at this writing, but when the people of the city will learn what has been accomplished- by the young members of the Institute, all will Join In doing honor to an organization, which has produced priests, soldiers, lawyers, actors and successful business men. Its members have been faithful servants In tbe aldermanic and coimcllmnnlc chambers and upon the unpaid boards of the city.

The SENTINEL extends Its heartiest wishes for the continuance of the good work done by this Institute.
THE MAYOR'S DODGING THE RESPONSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
THE MAYOR'S DODGING THE RESPONSIBILITY. The character of a nuin la often times est determined by the manner in which he accepts responsibility nnd by the fearlessness with which he meets various situations. In the coasting episode just referred to we have much evidence to show us the true character of the mayor. The Ilevißed Ordinances, Chapter 4.1, Sect. 15, says: "Xo person shall roust upon a sled on any street of this city without the written permission of the mayor." The youth of our city sent several petitions to the board of aldermen which body recognized that they had no standing in this matter and referred It to the mayor. The ordinances of the city distinctly confines the giving of coasting permits to the mayor of the city, but the latter has dodged the issue and has thrown upon the cmef or police the duties he should- bear. Mayor Daly should be more manly. If He Intended to deprive the boys of the Innocent pleasures of coasting he should come out and say so and not throw t...
THIS IS NOT TAFFY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
THIS IS NOT TAFFY. We are conscious that we have rapped the mayor severely this week but we want It understood that we are Just as hard as those who are using him, and coaching him on in bis career of madness and absolute disregard of the pledges nnd platform of his party. We know that what is going on and what will go on, Is not the sober reflections of Mayor Daly's own judgment, that he is guided on by Coveney, Donovan and the slick Xon-partlsans who find him easily led. and, bnnklng on his unpopularity with his own kind, succeeds in convincing him that their favor can only be secured by Implicitly obeying their dictation. We do not object to the mo3t radical departure from his so-called platform aud principles. It makes It easier for us. if he will relieve us of the duty of exposing his hypocrisy and that of his party. In that respect, at least, he is most accommodating, and we cordially thank him. Some day we will talk the whole thing over with him and In his usual confidential,...

A POLICE COMMISSION [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
A POLICE COMMISSION Many of the leaders of the Xon-parti-san party are anxious to have the state give a police commission to CamDrldge. Representative l.ehan, told one of his trleuds that the promotions recently made In the police department would stand as we were going to give Camuniige a police commission. When brought to taßk for using the word "we" he said he meant Senator Hounds was going to introduce such B bill. He advises the Republicans of this city to go slow upon such a matter. Let the people of Cambridge manage their own affairs, We need no help from a Republican legislature. Gentlemen, hands off!
APPOINTMENTS NOT SATISFACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
APPOINTMENTS NOT SATISFACTORY. The peopleV this city are much disappointed In the selections made ny Mayor Daly. Citizens, irrespective of party, do not hesltute to express disappointment at the choice of his nominees. The Chronicle has not hesitated to say that the public had hoped, not oniy for better nominations but fewer ones. Last year the Non-partisan press of the city condemned- Mayor McNamee for making so many changes, but the Chronicle of last week voices the sentiment of all fair-minded citizens In this headline: Mayor Daly outrivals ex-Mayor McNamee In his changes of officials." The "city before party" doctrine so loudly proclaimed by the Nonpartisan orators Is now shelved.
WHAT THE SOLDIERS SAY? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
WHAT THE SOLDIERS SAY? The last statement from the auditor appeared in an entirely new form and dress. It is divided into different groups nil in line with the suggestions laid down by Mr. Chase, the expert employed by tho city government to devise some uniform system of public accounting. One of the headings is "Public Charity." The title may be a proper one. but under this claßsill:a--tion appears "Soldiers Aid." We protest against Mr. Chase's insult to the aid given to the widows and orphans of the deceased soldiers ns receiving public charity, and trust that Mr. Chase will sec the error of his way and remove this standing Insult to those who fought under the Hag.
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 30 January 1904
The friends of former superintendent of streets Charles A. Brown are quite put out over the turning dowtt of Mr. Brown. They feel that as he was turned out for party purposes he should have been given the place Instead of Mr. Clukas. The Xon-partl-sans found fault because Mayor McNamee appointed a man who was not v practical road builder and then they appointed a clerk, a book-keeper, lo build roads. No party can hope to hold the good will of the people who In a campaign condemns one party for doing certain things but yet when they get in power carrying out the same principle; the only difference being one man goes out of the office while another comes In. We. arc told tnat Alderman Rlodget! says he does not like what is ..cing done but It Is necessary to build a machine to cope with the Democratic machine. This, of course, is putting city lie'ore party. 'The trouble, however, with what Mr. Blodgett Is attempting to imitate Is that It does not exist. There has been no Democratic ma-...
