LIVE UP TO IT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
LIVE UP TO IT. Since the Inauguration of the present administration the Sentinel has again and again referred to the actions of the Non-partisan leaders as contrary to their speeches In the campaign. We know of nothing In public nt'e that is so reprehensible as such acts. "An open foe may prove a curse, But a pretended friend U worse." The public has been deceived. Many of the Non-partisan leaders made an attack upon the board of health because they alleged that Mayor McNaniee had placed politicians upon that board, which came in such close touch to the public health, *et the flrst appointment to be made upon that board (Dr. Weeks) Is one which commends itself to no man acquainted with the qualities of the nominee. The caronicios estimation of hi in la summed up as follows:: "One of the main objections to him is that he is conspicuous as a politician and not as conspicuous professionally as is desired by many who believe taut a high-class practitioner snould fill the place." The .No...
EX-SUPERINTENDENT SHEA. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
EX-SUPERINTENDENT SHEA. On Monday last John T. Shea handed tne keys of the department to his successor, George M. Clukas, after whici he called upon the various heads of departments and thanked them for the courtesies extended to him during the past year. His conduct was in strong contrast to the ill*manuered exit or Former Superintendent of Streets Chas. A. Brown. Mr. Shea during the year introduced many improvements wuich will stand for the benefit of the city. i_»e gave a recognition and encouragement to trade unionism as no otuer superintendent in the history uf the city has done. His was tne first municipal aepartment which received the label of the journeyman horseshoers. He gave tne union scale ot wages to the blacksmiths, horseshoers, carpenters and harness makers. In all these cases tne wages of these men were Increased. He secured the passage through the council of the six months' hair-holl-day. He made a union department of the street employees. He was the first superinte...
MAKING WAY FOR ADDITIONAL PLUMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
MAKING WAY FOR ADDITIONAL PLUMS. The Non-partisans, as well as others on the Inside, realize that Cambridge has too few plums to be given to satisfy the army of seekers after positions. They also realize that something must be done to carry out even a part of the many promises made for rlectlon purposes. The big fish must be cared for, even If the little ones go hungry. With this purpose In view, Aldormnn Lake has Introduced an order looking for the creation of a police commission. This ls~bne of the greateet blows thst can be administered to home rule, but home government In the hands of the Democrats Is a government that Is the target for attack by the Republican army. A police commission for Cambridge la an Insult to the city. If a police commission Is good for OamDttdge, It ought to be good for Somervlllo and Newton, our sister cities. The Republicans have entire control in these places and the police force Is Just as deep In politics there us In Cambridge. Once place a police c...
CONDEMNS RUSHING TACTICS [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
CONDEMNS RUSHING TACTICS The SENTINEL, the Tribune and the Chronicle all condemn the rushing methods adopted by Alderman Lake in his haste to push through his police commission bio. The Chronicle's opinion of tne measure is as follows: "We hate to surrender any part of our local seir-gov'ernincut, for it is a sign of weakness and demoralization, and is not in line with the popular idea of modern self-government. Certainly until the conditions get very bud, we do not believe It wise to seek a change. It is a serious and lasting matter, and there should be no undue haste about It. The aldermen should give the most careful consideration to the subject before taking action. We are glad they had the wisdom to lay the matter on the table and not heed the requests to have it rushed through." Alderman Lake, by the above article, Is condemned In no uncertain tones by this leading paper of the Non-partisan party amd he is another one of those men whose candidacy was so highly ennrsed by the G...
RAILROADING THROUGH POLICE COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
RAILROADING THROUGH POLICE COMMISSION. The question of the merits of the proposition Is nothing in comparison to the anxiety to give positions to the faithful. Alderman Lake displayed very poor taste in attempting to rush througn such a bill which would carry such questionable methods into the city's affairs. The Tribune snys: "There is no need of acting hastily upon It. If this city is to confess Its failure to administer its police force In the manner In practice In other cities of the state: if it is to abandon the good government of a vital part of its affairs to a commission of three men, it should be only after the most mature deliberation and the most urgent public demand." What a condemnation of Mr. Lake's rushing tactics and. yet the same paper says, "Whatever the outcome may be we commend Alderman Lake's action in the matter." Here is ah example of how faithfully the Non-parti-San press prefer party to city, it admits that if. after due consideration of the matter, by the ...
$75.70 OUT OF EVERY $100. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
$75.70 OUT OF EVERY $100. Supt. Shea has closed his year. The record he has made is now a matter ot history. Although he was the centre of attack during the last campaign, alt bough he was the one Individual against whom a series of continuous falsehoods were hurled, we feel confident that when the smoke of battle blows away, John T. Shea will stand with his face to the toe unscarred and uninjured. How well he has done Is told by the figures at the head of this article. What do they represent? The amount ot money given In wages, team lug and watering contracts out ot every $100 given by the city government for the street department. In 1000 Superintendent Brown under Mayor Champlln gave in wages $61.01 out, of every $100 appropriated by the city government. In 1001 Superintendent Brown, under Mayor Dickinson, gave $60.80 In wages out of every .$lOO. in IIHKI, Superintendent John T. ; Shea, under Mayor McNamee, gave $76.70 in wages to every (100 given him by the city government.

BEFORE AND AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
BEFORE AND AFTER. The attitude of (the Non-partisan press In their Interest for the welfare of the city employees remind us of some of tho patent medicine illustrations of "Before nnd after Taking." There In as much difference In their Bui„ for cue worklngman prior to election and their present position as Is pictured in these Illustrated ads. Before the last election the Nonpartisan orgens uowled against the manner In which the city employees were treated until the people, unfamiliar with their hypocrisy, were led to believe that ihe tolling masses had found new , hneiplons. They were champions for policy only. They remained champions until they deceived those who trusted In them. Election now being over they return to their original position and now assail S .perintendent 3hea for having 12 men do the work around Olty Hall when two men could do tho same work. They forget tnat i\v pub lie desires the removal of this snow and Ice as expeditiously as poas'.y •. Next fall these same o...
NOT INTERESTED IN THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
NOT INTERESTED IN THE CITY. Last March Foreman Osborne was discharged from the street department. 1-ast week ex-Lieut. Henry C. Jones made a visit to tne office of the street department to inquire ub to the whereabouts of a sign post, against which e person was supposed to have driven and been Injured. The evidence token at the time was conclusive that s.ich a claim was false because there were no marks upon the post. Mr. Joneß gave the post to Foreman Osborne tor safe keeping so as to have the same when the case would come oefore tlie courts. What Mr. Osborne has dene with the post is not known. This is known that he did not take that care which snould be exercised by one who had the city's interest at heart, it a continuation of Democratic power would have resulted In the discharge of more men just as disinterested In the city's welfare as was Mr. Osborne, then the city will not be the losev by the change.
THE CHRONICLE AND SUIT, CLUKUS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
THE CHRONICLE AND SUIT, CLUKUS. We recall only a few years ago when the Chronicle called Mr. LTukus s grafter, a salary-grabber and editorially criticised his book-keeping methods. How things have changed. The same men welcome Mr. Clukas with open arms. Why this decided change? There Is method in the Chronicle's madness. An inspection of the auditor's books will show the animus of the Chronicle's flings at former Superintendent Shea. The chronicle did less printing for the department under Mr. Shea than under .Mr. clukas. The Chronicle lost the printing of odd Jobs, these Mr. Tracy got at a less price however than was paid to the Chronicle. The Chronicle for years has had the city advertising and no effort Was made to reduce the space to be paid tor by the city. During Mr. Shea's administration a plan was devised which materially reduced the amount of paid space in the Chronicle. It Is no wonder that the proprietors of the Chronicle welcome the coming of a new superintendent with wh...
UNFAIR TO ORGANIZED LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
UNFAIR TO ORGANIZED LABOR. A transaction has taken place this week which stamps this administration as not only one adverse to business methods but as antagonistic to organized labor. The printing of the estimates of the different departments us well as the figures submitted by the mayor are printed for the benefit of the finance committee. This year J. Frank I'acey who had printed these estimates tor the last two years made a proposition to submit a figure but he was ioid that no figures would be received as the printing must he given to the chronicle. This stand proves three tilings. That the business administration would not run the risk of giving Mr. Tracy a chance to hid because he might prove to be the lowest bidder. That the policy of the administration is to give all work to those who aided it in the last campaign, which Is the spoils system, n policy which they severely criticised during the campaign. Tne greatest Injustice was ..lis willful discrimination against organized...
MORE DISSATISFACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
MORE DISSATISFACTION. Last week we called attention to the dissatisfaction which exists among the members of the Non-pnrllsan press as to the calibre of the appointments made by Mayor Daly. This discontent Is rapidly spreading to the members of the city council, several Non-partisan aldermen have expressed their disapproval, and now comes evidence from tho common council. Sir. Harlow, tho Non-partisan member from Ward 5, has introduced n most radical measure as to tbe appointments of the mayor. He can give no excuse for Buch an order save the' one that the mayor's nominees are a disappointment What could happen to appointments, under this order, if both branches were politically opposed to the mayor? No nominee of the Mayor'e could hold office against the wishes of the city council, no matter how competent he might be. A competent official then In office and re-appolnted could not continue In office. There could be no such a case as a bold-over. No Incompetent otlidal could be remov...
INTERFERING WITH HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
INTERFERING WITH HEALTH. ,It is a well known fac* thtit the Republican party is the father and protector of trusts. The evil which they have brought upon the people Is already too apparent. It Is said that if some of these trust magnates could corner the air they would delight in so doing, if money would be the result. Life, limbs, or health, nothing Is not too sacred for them to Injure provided they can Increase their dividends. In proor or this we refer to the attempts now being made to encourage the coming of the antl-toxlne trust into the state. Today this trust has no foothold In our state because the manufacture of this cure for diphtheria Is in the hands of the boards of health. How can this barrier lie broken down? Those men. clever In nil plans to defeat the will or the people and serve the corporations, have recourse to the nioHt subtle scheme.- the one of finances. The people are crying against the e.vtravagances of the state's finances. This Is the weapon to be used by t...
WE CONGRATULATE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
WE CONGRATULATE. The Sentinel takes pleasure In congratulating the Cambridge Press on the splendid showing It Is making under the present management Next to the Sentinel It has the ablest editorial page of any paper In the city, and In most Instances we are in accord with what it has to say on city affairs and the present administration. It Is far from being satisfied with Its party as reflected by the Non-partisans (?), the mayor and his machine, and its condemnation Is as unqualified as our own. It is consistently Non-partisan and believes in the party living up to its ante-election promises. In this it has our cordial appreciation and that of all honest Nonpartisans. Honest effort, brains, push and perseverance will always succeed. and the I'ress has all these.
THE PRESS'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
THE PRESS'S VIEW. "If Henry J. Cunningham's connection with the Democratic party as a political worker in the past were sufficient cause for his removal as chief of police, then why could l'hllip 1\ Sharpies, a recognized political worker on the other side. Be conscientiously appointed as Inspector of milk and vinegar? Why could Charles T. Weeks be appointed to the board of health, and still further, why could certain other appointments have been made and more In contemplationV"—l'ress. Hecause the machine has so decreed, and his honor has no alternative but to obey.. "Dr. Weeks, a campaign worker, haß displaced Dr. Roswell Wetherbee, who has proven himself to be an able and helpful health official, a physician of large experience and keen Judgment. Here, again, the welfare of the city demands his retention, but party politics has decreed otherwise."—Cambridge I'ress. "The great rallying cry before election was 'City above party.' Now It la coming to he 'Party above everything.' "—P...
PITY THE SICK. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
PITY THE SICK. lv the last campaign the board of health was attacked because of the socalled introduction of politics into the board, but on Tuesday night the Nonpartisan majority by their acts placed on that board a man by far the most Inferior ever placed there. If the health of our citizens is to be prized and protected, a man or Dr. Weeks' nlinty should never have been placed there. The most talented that could he found would not be more than titted for such a berth. Dr. Weeks will be a prominent factor In the next campaign. We have given warning enough on the matter already, but we have much up our sleeve yet. and we will let It loose nt the proper time.
AN OFFENSIVE PARTISAN [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
AN OFFENSIVE PARTISAN Ihe confirmation by the board of aldermen of Mr. Sharpies, as Inspector of milk and vinegar, places another obstacle In the path of the so-called reformers. One of the arguments which they were braking against the continuation in office ot Superintendent Shea was that, he was an offensive partisan. The same argument is at present being made by them against J. Frank Facey. After Tuesday night's work they should. If they are consistent and honorable gentlemen, forever drop such ftp insincere argument; for on that nigtit they confirmed .Mr. Sharpies. No man on the Non-partisan end. with the exception of Messrs. Chainplin and Elmore, put so much time Into the work of the campaign as did Mr. Sharpies. ■ Wherever the board of registrars of voters went, there also was found Mr. Sharpies. Into"-r"ast Cambridge he hustled, copying flic names of those who were registered, and giving the same to the executive committee of the Non-partisans. On election day no one was more...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
Of course the movement lor n police commission by the Republican end or tho Non-partisans Is considered for the good of the city (?) but when the simple matter of salaries Is considered we find that the three commissioners will receive nine thousand five hundred dollars and the clerk two thousand making an extra expense of eleven thousand five hundred dollars In the salary then alone. With the Incidental expenses It will be found that It would add at least fifteen thousand dollars to the sums already raised by taxation. Are the cltlsene willing to stand this simply for the purpose of allowing a Republican governor to place In positions salary grabbers of that party, for no one thinks that he would appoint a single straight Democrat. We do not think the citizens will stand any such needless expense oven if there be no stronger ground. wtfjj* ~-. Editor Maccahe. In bis East Boston Argus, sayß: .

LEHAN BREAKS AWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
LEHAN BREAKS AWAY. Representative • Deltrick of this city is making a reputation for himself by his conduct in the House. The corporations of the state are not friendly to Mr. Deltrick because he Is one who cannot be used by them. I.ast year as well as this he was Interested in securing cheaper telephone rates. The telephone has now become a household necessity as all admit who have had a 'phone in their homes. Once established in a household only financial reasons will cause Its removal and when removed It is done with much regret. The people are watching this contest and are much concerned as to the results. We are proud to place upon the roll of honor the names of those three Democrats who truly represent the people. Representatives Aylward Sennott and Deltrick and Republican Representative Clark, on the roll call to appoint a special committee to investigate the hours of labor, the rate of wages and the rates of telephone services. Mr. Lehnn. we thus address him because he is no...
SHERIDAN RE-INSTATED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 6 February 1904
SHERIDAN RE-INSTATED. The giving to John Sheridan, formerly foreman In the street department, his old position. Is what has been expected since the result of the 'lection was known. Not only since his discharge but even prior to his dismissal this man was playing polities against the McNamee administration. The Non-partisans find no fault with a foreman In the street department who plays politics in their favor but if the favor of Democracy then he should hot hold office. We can give the name of a city employee who. when he was laid off by Mr. Sheridan, was told "this is what you get for voting the Democratic ticket." If this isn't bringing politics Into his service of the city we fail to distinguish the traits of the game. In the beginning of the yenr Superintendent Shea thought he had a friend in Mr. Sheridan, at least the latter should have been one to Mr. Shea. When Mayor Sortwoll refused to nominate Mr. Rrown. Mr. Shea endeavored to have his friend Sheridan nominated for* the p...
