Legal Injustice. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887

Legal Injustice. The unlucky experience of a reputable citizen of Cambridge, emphasizes and illustrate*) a gross Injustice of which we recently had occasion to speak: the employ men tof the criiuioal law for the collection of debts. The gentleman to whom we refer, having been unfortunate in business, was arrested by aa unscrupulous creditor on a trumpedup charge of dishonesty. Being en'irely innocent not only in fact, but, which is a very different matter, lo law as we I— he was on examination forthwith discharged. completely purged of the least suspicion of dishonor. Meantime, that purveyor of scandal, the dally newspaper, had spread far and wide the damaging accusation ; and the public, ever only too willing to credit the worst Id the character of less fortunate fellowbeings, had convinced itself of tlie truth of the most unfounded accusation. It is even te be feared that to many readers the result waa a real disappointment, since nothing is more agreeable to certain mental and lu...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887

The gay deceiver. Dr. Grant, alias Perry, is now safely quartered in tlie East Cambridge jail. It is said that the doctor is good looking, which probably accounts for Miss Torrey's infatuation. There are loud appeals for additional electric lights in our streets. The light has now become a necessity, (and the wonder it that we have so long been in darkness. All our principal avenue* should have electric lights. Joseph Cook seems to find little to praise or admire in the character of Mr. Ben-her; but then the Rev. Joseph probably never entertained a really hearty admiration for any merely human being except liim-elf. It is almost a pity that circumstances will make Udiftscult for this distinguished win to pronounce his own funeral discourse; no one else will be apt to do him complete justice. The devil has been most persistently and judiciously belabored during tlie past winter iv Boston. What with popular meetings in Faneuil Hall and Kings Chapel, and tlie revival labors of Messi». ...

CITY HALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887

CITY HALL NOTES. The committee on police, wisely we think, recommended the full exoneration of Officer Scobey, who was charged with the too free use of his chtb on the occasion of the riot on the 20th «X., and the succeeding morning. The officer, with his associates, had been ordered to disperse the lielligerent congregation of people which had unlawfully assembled and which was committing outrageous attacks upon horse cars and imperilling the lives of passengers. The persons bringing the complaints agaiust the officer, may be good citizens, and we have no doubt they are, but under the excitement which then prevailed they should have avoided the crowd with which the police had to deal, and have gone about their business when requested by the officers. We believe that the police should have the support of the authorities when engaged in the suppression of outbreaks of auv character. Mayor Russell expresses the sentiment of all good citizens when he endorses the services of the police...
