Talk about the wicked Democrats; this Non-partisan machine that Is running things just nt the present time could give Tammany, or even Mat. Quny in Pennsylvania cards and sondes and then make them all look like the proverbial 30 cettts when it comes to real, actual spoils. I mean the yard-wide, nil-wool, never-shrlnk kind of office-grabbing that we read about In places which we have hitherto felt we were far removed from. But ain't they peaches. They are not satisfied with whnt Is laying around loobb and not nailed, but they want all thnt the city charter has put a wrought-iron clinch on and they are out with all sorts of instruments to tear these places loose, and when they have no instrument at hand they go to the Legislature to manufacture n new one.

RAPS THE SCHOOL BOARD. Monday evening President Eliot compnred the school management of American cities With those of foreign countries nnd he gave prtlm to the foreigners. No lnrge representative body can do work of an executive nature as well as a .smaller body. He condenined' the large membership of the school board. As the school system of Cambridge Is the one most under hie observation the sharp criticism of the school boards is applicable to the Cambridge board. Our board, he said, was too large to tie efficient. The Democrats have said, that the Cambridge board was not an efficient one and now comes President Eliot accusing It of the same Incompetency. What a shock to Cambridgeites!

NOW FOR MONTGOMERY. "This Is lite year for vindication— for all but William 11. Gray, ex-super-lntendent of buildings and Charles A. Brown, ex-superfntendent of streets. How to vindicate former L. M. Hastings, ex-clty engineer, Is a question which Is hard to answer. Never mind Jf he has made many costly mistakes, his friends demand thai lv* be re-In-stated, and re-lustnted he shall be.

PRESIDENT WHEELER'S ADMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 13 February 1904
PRESIDENT WHEELER'S ADMISSION. The good government league of Cambridge is the gainer by having such v mall as Henry X. Wheeler at Its bead. 'Ill* presence of such n man In the movement does much to check the suspicion 01 the public as to the honesty Of the movement. Mr. Wheeler admitted that thd 1 governments of the cities of Ureal Britain ami Germany were more efficient, economical and practical than were those of our cities. In Ibis admission he Included the government of Cambridge, so long controlled and managed by the Library "hall association, We agree with him in this reflection on the government of Cambridge under Library hall that it was not efficient, economical and practical. These words Were the most suggestive: "In our municipal government we .rely more on men than measures." The condition expressed in these words existed to a marked degree In tbe last campaign In Cambridge. The Xonpartlsan campaign committee practically shut out the public- to the caucus to nominate can...

MEETING OF THE GOO-GOOS. This Is the term which has been applied to the (food Government League clubs of the COUhtry. Saunders Theatre wns secured because even thnt large space would not be sufficient to senl all who would attend, such was tlie opinion of those who planned the attain Their opinion and that of the public seems to have differed. The public acted as Hiough Ihey hnd no confidence In the sincerity of tlie men lielilnd this movement and consequently ihey stayed away. The prime movers must have nt least thought the people might share this opinion because Ihe managers went to New York lo bring a innn of v National reputation to draw ii large audience. Everything wns done by the organisation to fill this edifice, but the result wns n grent disappointment, for empty sents wns n feature of the meeting. Was Mr. Cutting's address a failure?

Among other stateßments made was tlie following: "Officers will absolutely refrain fr.iin all discussions In the Btatiops and from meddling In politics or elections In any way, except to vote. Any officer who Is found guilty of political work of any degree rlßks his position, for there is a determination to stamp this practice out."

ELIOT'S CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 13 February 1904
ELIOT'S CHANGE. "The friends of organized Inlsir received an awful shock when, at the dinner of the Economic club In Chicago, President Eliot said "The scab is v good type of modern hero." No one connected with the labor movement could see bow such a scholarly man could paint such a' picture of a "scab." The only excuse could be of Ills hick of knowledge of the practical workings of a strike and the real character of the senb. Today be snys the sen. may be a hero, not—ls one. A strike may be on and some catastrophe occur which would require the hero to perform some dangerous act, which might save much loss, the scab might be tbe one to Jump into the breech. In such ii case the scab Is a good type of a modern hero. Hut under no conditions can we see a hero In n mini who, tor sottish reasons, endeavors to deprive his fellowinen of Ills Just shnre of his enfnlngs, which earnings would bring added happiness and comfort to Ihe home. President Eliot brought his Hence tv distant Switzerlan...
A TIP TO MR. DANA. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 13 February 1904
A TIP TO MR. DANA. These words were uttered by Mr. Dana at the meeting of the Good Government League: "One head of a department In a city not 100 miles from Cambridge, haa recently boasted he had raised $80,000 for the campaign among people who dealt with his department. We knovV what that means, lie got It from p?o--pie who made their money out of the city." All who rend those lines are satisfied that .Mr. Ila mi bus not rcerred to tbe Democratic administration of the niTnlrs at City Hall. Mr. Dana need not go outside of Cambridge to learn that under tbe past Non-partisan administrations this method of raising campaign funds has been employed, and we nre told to good advantage. Contractors have been allowed to deliver materials not up to the specifications in Ihe hope that when Hie campaign arrived they would appreciate the leeway given to fliein and there Is no doubt hut thai II was appreciated 111 the form of v donation of large or small size according to the extent hi which the ...

A QUESTIONABLE STANDARD. Chief (Vl I'ullen must have witnessed tile perforh cc of Dim Daly 111 the Belle of Xew York and enjoyed bis song "of COUrSe .you call never be like me. hut be as like me as you're able to lie." Chief I'ullen doesn't dare to no quite as far as the famous coniedlali who admitted thai no one could aver be tike him, bill many believc&gt; lie certainly harbors tin- thought. The chief ainencis Daly's speech and substitutes these words: "I hold every one of you .up to my standard, if you cannot reach It, lam sorry, for you cannot make a goof police officer nor expect uilvaiicomen'." If this doesn't represent conceit we are ready to lie .Instructed us to Its meaning, Here be boasts that he himself is a good officer and ho admits thnt men nn the force can never be like him, for which he expresses sorrow. Should the public be sorry If men on the force do not copy his'official conduct J The SENTINEL believes Hint if all the members of the force were to do allot...

THAYER REWARDED. Tbe determination of this administration to reinstate nil those men lnh! off and even discharged by the McXamee administration Is now common talk. All of these men were sore at their treatment by the former administration and all of them were urged to do their share In the defeat of McXamee. and their old positions would be given to them. This promise Is being carried out by the present purity party. The SENTINEL will now review the ease of Eoremnn Thnyer.

Chief of I'ollre Cunningham received SliKt.Ol ns pay for 1!) dnys' salary, from the city treasurer's office on Wednesday. And still the Xon-pnrtlsan machine claims that he wns illegnlly holding his position. Then why not carry out the bluff nnd not pay anything? The courts will decide us lo which claim Is right. In relation to the matter of a subway under the Fltchburg tracks In Xorth Cambridge, It Is related that Councilman Meyers. In calling down one of the Xon-partisan members of the council for voting for It, was told that It was a much-needed Improvement and that It ought to pass, at which .lullus replied, 'Then why didn't you bring In the order and then we would have supported It.
