REPORT. 



Chief Engineer's Office, 

City Hall, January 1, 1873. 

To His Honor the Mayor, and City Council : — 

Gentlemen : — I have the honor to present the Thirteenth Annual 
Report of the Steam Fire Department of this city, it being the 
Thirty-fifth Annual Report since the organization of the depart- 
ment. 

Under their several heads, forming a part of this report, I 
present a detailed statement of its organization, the cost of main- 
taining the same, a list of all fires occurring in our city during the 
past municipal year, also the number of hydrants and reservoirs 
where water can be obtained in case of fire, with the location of the 
latter, their capacity, etc. The loss and insurance on fires are presented 
in detail, with the exception of the great fire of Nov. 9th and 10th, 
which I find impossible to present in this report. I trust the rec- 
ommendations which I deem it my duty to submit, will commend 
themselves to the judgment of your honorable body. 

The department as now organized is as follows : — 

At the commencement of each municipal year there is appointed 
by His Honor the Mayor, and President of the Common Council, 
a Joint Standing Committee on the Fire Department, composed 
of three members of the Board of Aldermen, and five from the 
Common Council. This Committee have charge of the financial 
interests of the department, having authority by the ordinances of 
the city to spend such sums of money for its maintenance as the 
wants of the department seem to require from time to time, when 
such expenditure does not exceed the sum of five hundred dollars. 
All expenditures over that sum must be authorized by a concurrent 
vote of the City Council. 



4 City Document, — No. 58. 

The Board of Engineers are elected by the concurrent vote of 
the City Council, in the month of February or March, and hold 
their office for one year, or until their successors are chosen. 
This Board, when organized, have full control of both officers and 
members, as well as all of the houses, horses, and apparatus, and 
are also made responsible for the good conduct of the men ; and 
by the ordinance of the cit}?, section 4, they are authorized to 
make such rules and regulations for the extinguishment of fires, as 
they in their judgment may from time to time determine, such 
rules being subject to the approval of the Joint Standing Com- 
mittee on Fire Department. There is also elected in the month of 
April, a Secretary of the Board of Engineers, said officer being 
recommended by the Board of Engineers, who holds his office for 
the term of one j^ear. The rank and file of the department is as 
follows : Four hundred and fifty-nine members, who are recom- 
mended by the Board of Engineers, appointed by His Honor the 
Mayor, confirmed by the Board of Aldermen, and who hold their 
position as firemen during good behavior. They are divided into 
42 companies, as follows: 21 Steam Engine Companies, 11 Horse 
Hose Companies, 7 Hook and Ladder Companies, and 3 Extin- 
guisher Corps. 

Each engine company in the City Proper, East and South Boston, 
and Dorchester District (with the exception of those companies 
hereinafter named), has an engineman, fireman and driver (who 
are permanently employed), and eight hosemen, who do duty only 
at fires ; one of the last number is designated as foreman of the 
hose. Engine Company No. 6 of the City Proper, Engine Com- 
panies Nos. 16 and 17, of Ward 16, with Engine Companies Nos. 
12, 13, and 14, located in the " Roxbury District," are composed 
of an engineman, fireman and two drivers, — one to drive the 
engine and the other the hose carriage, — who are permanently 
employed ; and eight hosemen who do duty only at fires. The hose 
carriages in this district are drawn to fires separately from the 
engines, instead of being attached as in the other portions of the 
city. 

Each hose company has a driver (who is permanently employed) 
and eight hosemen, who do duty only at fires, and one of this num- 
ber is designated as foreman of the hose. 



Fire Department. 5 

Hook and Ladder Company No 1 has a driver, foreman, assist- 
ant foreman, four axemen, four rakemen, and thirteen members. 

No. 2 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axemen, 
four rakemen, and nine members. 

No. 8 consists of a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axe- 
men, four rakemen, and thirteen members. 

No. 4 consists of a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axe- 
men, four rakemen, and nine members. 

No. 5 has a driver, foreman, assistant foremen, four axemen, 
four rakemen, and nine members. 

No. 6 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, and six mem- 
bers. 

No. 7 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, and six mem- 
bers. 

There has been added to this department the past year, two fire- 
extinguisher wagons, each equipped with ten fire extinguishers, 
three hundred feet of one and one-half inch hose, with axes, rakes, 
lanterns, etc.

CONDITION OF THE DEPARTMENT. 

At the close of the municipal year the twenty-one Steam Fire 
Engines in commission were in thorough repair and perfect work- 
ing order, with the exception of Melville Engine No. 6, which 
is at the Amoskeag Works being thoroughly overhauled. The 
five auxiliary engines are also in thorough repair and good work- 
ing condition. The several Hose Carriages connected with this 
department are also in thorough repair, with the exception of those 
used by Engines Nos. 12, 13 and 14, which will have to be replaced 
during the present municipal year. The Ladder Carriages are 
also in good repair. The several pieces of apparatus connected 
with this department, such as Extinguisher Wagons and Coal 
Wagons, are in good condition. 

I was enabled to maintain the maximum strength of the Steam 
force by telegraphing on Sunday the 10th day of November, to the 
agent of the Amoskeag Works, Manchester, N. H., to send by 
express duplicates of such parts of the machinery as were liable 
to give out, with a corps of workmen from their works to aid and 
assist in placing the apparatus in the best possible condition and 
ready for any demand that should be made upon it. Owing to the 
large destruction of hosf 1 , telegrams were sent to New York, which 



Fire Department. 9 

were duly answered, and in three days a full complement of new 
hose was purchased a nd delivered, and this department rendered 
as strong and effective as it was previous to the fire. 

A majority of the horses have recovered from the epidemic, and 
the places of those still unable to work are temporarily supplied by 
hire. 

NEW APPARATUS. 

Four Steam Fire Engines have been purchased, — three from 
the works of Messrs. Hunneman & Co. and one from the Amos- 
keag Works, Manchester, N. H. These engines were built under 
the immediate supervision of Messrs. Cole, Engineinan of No. 12, 
Traver of Engine No. 6 and Ray of Engine No. 1, who were 
appointed by the Chief as Inspectors of Steam-Fire Engines. 

They were placed, upon their completion, immediately in the 
service of the city, and have proved themselves to be engines of 
superior powers, reflecting the highest honor and credit upon the 
builders. 

Two Hook and Ladder Carriages have also been purchased, 
one of which has been placed in the service of the city, in Hook 
and Ladder House No. 4, and the other will be located in the Dor- 
chester District in Hook and Ladder House No. 6. These were 
also from the works of Messrs. Hunneman & Co. There were also 
contracted for, two Horse-Hose Carriages, — the "Webster" No. 
11 and the "Gaston "No. 12, — one for East Boston, and the 
other for South Boston Point. There have also been purchased and 
placed in commission two Extinguisher Wagons and two Coal 
Wagons, — one Extinguisher Wagon for East Boston and one for 
the City Proper, — the Coal Wagons for the Dorchester District. 
There have also been purchased fifty Fire Extinguishers of the Bab- 
cock pattern. This was necessary to replace those destroyed at the 
fire of Nov. 9th. There also has been contracted for, an Iron Fire- 
Boat, of the following dimensions, which was placed in the service 
January 1st, 1873. The fire-boat is about fifty-five tons 
measurement, and measures seventy-five feet in length, fifteen feet 
beam and seven feet in depth. Her hull is built of iron, the keel, 
stem and stern posts being of hammered metal, and the frames, 
which are of reverse angle iron, spread twenty-one inches between 



10 City Document. — No. 58. 

centres, are stiffened by vertical floor plates. Three keelsons 
extend the entire length of the boat. The forecastle below deck 
is fitted with berths, table, seats and lockers for the accommodation 
of the men. The house on deck has a cabin, engine, boiler, cook 
and hose rooms, all of which are finished in a substantial and work- 
manlike manner. The pilot-house is on top of the main house over 
the hose-room, and is fitted with seats and mahogany steering- 
wheel ; a hand-rail extends around the house to prevent accident, 
and the top is covered with tin to ensure safety from fire. The 
main engine is vertical, direct acting, high pressure, with link 
motion and independent cut-off valve. Its diameter- of cylinder is 
seventeen inches and seventeen-inch stroke. The propeller is six 
feet in diameter, with five inches wrought-iron shaft ; two force 
pumps driven from the main shaft, and one steam pump for feed- 
ing the boiler, and a steam siphon pump for the bilge. The 
boiler is an upright tubular, with cylindrical fire-box, twenty-four 
feet grate surface. The whole power of the fire-engine machinery 
is equal in capacity to four first-class fire engines, and with all in 
action will play eight streams at one time. This machinery was 
built by the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company, and of the same 
design as their steam fire engines. The boat, main engine, 
machinery and boiler were built by the Atlantic Works, East Bos- 
ton. The experience of the past years has shown conclusively 
that this boat will prove a valuable and effective auxiliary to our 
Fire Department, commanding as it does a larger field of operation 
than any four steam fire engines in commission. For the cost of 
new apparatus, as purchased during the past year, see table of 
expenditures. 

ADDITIONAL APPABATUS. 

I would recommend the purchase of three additional Steam Fire 
Engines, of the size and capacity of Engine No. 4, — one to be 
located in Ward 4, near the Custom House, one in Ward 6, and 
the other in Ward 14. I would also recommend the purchase of a 
Hook and Ladder Carriage to be located in Ward 4, also two of 
the Babcock self-acting fire engines, one to be located in Bulfinch 
street and the other at the south section of our city ; also a Horse 
Hose Carriage to be located in Longwood.

FIRE-ESCAPES. 

In considering the wants of this department, in order to promote 
its greater efficiency, I have deemed it desirable that there should 
be constructed a combination ladder and fire-escape. This should 
be so arranged that it could be raised to an elevation of eighty 
feet or more, in two minutes' time. When in position, every floor 
of a six-story building should be accessible from the ladder at one 
and the same time. The escape should be so arranged that the 
sick, aged, or crippled could be rescued from either story, and 
their transit to the' street rendered safe and easy. 

The demand for such an escape is so evident, that I am confi- 
dent it will commend itself to the City Council; and should in- 
ducement be offered, I have no doubt the inventive genius of our 
people would soon construct such an one as would commend itself 
to our judgment. 

In addition, I deem it my duty to recommend to the City Coun- 
cil that an ordinance, be passed, compelling the owners of hotels, 
manufacturing establishments, and workshops where men or wom- 
en are employed in the upper stories, to maintain permanent fire- 
escapes from their several buildings ; said escapes to be approved 
by the Inspector of Buildings. 

RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES. 

The expenses of the past year have been as follows : For sala- 
ries of the members, as per vote of the City Council, $221,076,06. 
For the purchase of new apparatus, horses, and harnesses, 
$23,765.48. For new Fire-boat, $19,893.95. For the expense of 
the Committee on Fire Department, $3,359.92. For the parade Of 
the department upon the anniversary of the settlement of Boston, 
$3,344.62. For appropriation made by the City Council for the 
relief of injured firemen, $800.00. For the purchase of hose, and 
repairing, $59,038.04. For the use of water for the extinguishment 
of fires, charged to the appropriation of this department, as per 
vote of the City Council, $75,062.00. For repairs on hydrants 
and reservoirs, $767.08. For expenses of the Coliseum, $2,551.30. 
For the furnishing of supplies, such as fuel, gas, hay, grain, oils, 
etc., $109,727.65. 



12 City Document. — No. 58. 

The receipts of the department the past year, for the sale of 
manure, condemned hose, old material, and horses that became 
unfit for service, amount to $1,914.&6, which has been paid into 
the City Treasury. 

For a detailed statement of the expenditures of this department, 
see table of expenditures. 

WATER FOR FIRE PURPOSES. 

The increase of our city in area and population, and also in the 
magnitude and height of its public buildings, extensive warehouses, 
and private residences, has correspondingly increased our liability 
to conflagrations. This should not be so, but the fact is not to be 
denied, as it is fully proved by the annual increase in the number 
of fires occurring, and value of property consumed. As water is 
the only element at present used in the extinguishment of fire, it 
would seem that wisdom and prudence should have provided an 
abundant supply for this purpose. But, for some cause, this press- 
ing want for the protection of our city has been set aside. Upon 
the introduction of Cochituate water, our citizens indulged largely 
in the belief that a considerable portion of the Fire Department 
could be dispensed with. So prevalent was this opinion at that 
time, that the City Council disbanded a large number of Engine 
Companies, and relied upon the flow of water from hydrants for 
the extinguishment of fires. At the time of the introduction of 
Cochituate, the number of water-takers was comparatively small, 
water-closets were the exception rather than the rule, the water- 
pipes, being new, were free from sediment, and yet, in many sec- 
tions of the city, the pipes proved too small to meet the demand in 
' cases of emergency. For this reason the hand-engines were again 
resorted to for the protection of the city. This difficulty of a 
short supply of water has been constantly growing worse, both 
from the increase in the number of water-takers, and from the 
deposit of sediment in the pipes, decreasing their capacity. From 
the increased height of buildings, and other causes, it was felt that 
better appliances were needed, and steam fire-engines were early 
introduced. Their capacity for throwing water was much greater 
than that of the engines previously in use, yet no steps were taken 



Fire Depaetment. 13 

by those in authority to give them an adequate supply. The dis- 
tributing pipes and hydrants in the city proper are the same as 
originally introduced (except in a few instances), and their 
capacity is much reduced by sediment being constantly deposited. 
As chief of this department, I deemed it my duty to lay the facts 
before the City Council, in my annual reports for 1867, 1868, and 
1869, in the following words : — 

" HYDRANTS. 

" During the past three years, at large fires, much difficulty has 
been experienced for the want of an adequate supply of water for 
our steam fire engines ; the immediate cause of this failure is 
this, namely : — 

" That the hydrants, in every instance, are placed upon branch 
pipes, the diameter of which varies from three to four inches, 
while the mains themselves, in almost every instance, are but four 
inches in diameter, that supply them. 

" In case of fire, the hydrant upon these branch pipes will afford 
a supply to only one steamer ; all others on the line are useless ; 
the steamer being at work, makes a vacuum in the pipe by drawing 
the water to the hydrant first tapped. 

" The result of this difficulty is, that much time is consumed in 
shifting the apparatus to lines of pipe in other streets, by reason 
of which, long continuous lines of hose have to be used to con- 
vey the water to the scene of conflagration ; and, by this operation, 
the amount of friction to overcome is very great, requiring often- 
times a water pressure from 180 to 200 pounds to the square inch, 
to be effectual in our high buildings. 

" To overcome this evil, I would suggest that upon our main 
thoroughfares hydrants be connected with the main pipes, of size 
not less than eight inches in diameter, with a proper outlet, which 
would give us a supply of water fully equal, if not more than we 
now get from six of the ordinary hydrants. 

" One of these hydrants would afford a supply for three of our 
engines, with one-third the amount of hose now used to reach the 
fire. The pressure upon the hose would be reduced thirty per 
cent., and the bursting correspondingly decreased." 



14 City Document. — No. 58. 

WATER. 

There are two thousand six hundred and six hydrants, and 
ninety-six reservoirs, where water can be obtained in case of fire, 
which are charged to the Appropriation for Fire Department by 
the Water Board, at the rate of $18.00 a piece, making a total of 
$48,636.00 for the use of water for the extinguishment of fires. 
There is also charged to this department, by the Water Works, 
for furnishing and keeping in repair the hydrants and reservoirs, 
the sum of $32,256.00, making a total of $80,892.00. 

HOSE. 

There is in the department 66,205 feet at the close of the muni- 
cipal year, classed as follows : — 

14,537 feet of leather — of excellent quality. 

7,998 " " " — " inferior 
25,573 " " rubber — " excellent 

3,426 " " " — " poor 
12,821 " " cotton— " good 

1,850 " " linen — " " 



66,205 



There were destroyed at the fire of Nov. 9th, 10th and 11th in 
this city, 20,900 feet of hose. There had been condemned pre- 
viously to the great fire 3,723 feet of hose of all kinds, making a 
total of 24,623 feet. 

To meet this deficiency and supply the Hose Co. at East Boston, 
the new Fire Boat, the Institution at Deer Island, and to replace 
that destroyed belonging to the several cities and towns who an- 
swered our summons for help (amounting to 8,000 feet), there 
have been purchased and added to the account of this department 
46,000 feet of hose. The following is the standard adopted by this 
department for leather hose : — 

STANDARD FOR HOSE. 

Pure oak, city tanned, Baltimore, or Philadelphia leather and 
warranted such, known as " overweight," the average weight of 



Fire Department. 15 

which is not less than twenty-two pounds to the side," and none to 
be used which shall weigh less than twenty pounds. 

Copper rivets, — double riveted, twenty-two rivets to the run- 
ning foot, of size known as No. 8 wire. Splices to be made with 
thirteen rivets, of size known as No. 7 wire. 

Said hose, when finished with three loops and rings, to weigh 
not less than sixty-four pounds to each fifty feet exclusive of the 
couplings, and warranted to stand a pressure of not less than 
(200) two hundred pounds to the square inch. 

Couplings to be of the same thread as now in use by this city ; 
the tail-bands and tail-pieces to be two inches in width aud 
length respectively, and to be secured by thi-ee rivets. 

In this connection I desire to return my sincere thanks to Messrs. 
Boyd & Sons, of 27 Merchants Row, to Messrs. Winship & Co., 
and also to Messrs. Cheever & Co.,. and the Boston Belting Co., 
as represented by Messrs. Hunt & Twitchell, also to Messrs. 
Clapp & Co., for the prompt manner in which they answered my 
request in the repairing of hose, working night and day without 
additional charge to the city. 

HORSES. 

There had been much sickness among the horses in this depart- 
ment during the year, previous to the appearance of the epidemic 
so generally prevalent ; yet up to that time no death had occurred 
among them. On the twenty-eighth of October, the disease known 
as the epizootic, or influenza catarrh, attacked them, and so rapid 
was its spread, that on the fourth of November the entire force was 
prostrated. The services of Dr. Very were secured, the horses 
placed under his charge, and every attention given that would tend 
to effect a speedy and permanent cure. The instructions of the 
doctor were strictly complied with in the treatment of the animals, 
by their several drivers who had them in charge. The* disease 
assumed several forms ; in some, the typhoid type, in some pneu- 
monia, in others kidney troubles and dropsy. At this time nearly 
all the horses in this region were so badly affected that but few 
were to be seen upon our streets. Business was almost suspended 



16 City Document. — No. 58. 

for lack of transportation, and such conveyance as necessity abso- 
lutely demanded had to be done by men. The horses in this 
department were seriously affected, their feet and legs being cold 
and badly swelled, and so weak that it was with difficult}' they 
could be backed out of their stalls. Upon the appearance of this 
sudden and sweeping calamity, the Board of Engineers, after care- 
ful deliberation, voted that the force of the department be doubled, 
and that steps be taken immediately to supply the force, so that no 
unreasonable delay should occur in the transportation of the 
apparatus in case of fire. In addition to the doubling of the force, 
it was voted, should the exigency arise, to levy upon and press 
into the service of the city, in their several fire-districts, any horses 
that were available. This vote was approved by the Committee on 
Fire Department, and the proceedings were published in the daily 
papers. As many letters were received commending such action, 
and no objections were made, we have good reason to believe that 
this course was approved bj' our citizens generally. The course 
adopted by the Board of Engineers was generally followed in other 
cities, not only throughout New England, but also in the Middle 
and Western States. The direct loss to this department by death, 
on account of the epizootic, was four, as follows : Engine No. 3 
one, Engine No. 4 one, Engine No. 17 one, and Hook and Ladder 
No. 3 one. 

Twelve horses are still suffering from the effects of the disease, 
and will have to be exchanged at an early day. 

By the upsetting of Hose Carriage No. 5, while responding to an 
alarm from Box 82, on the 15th of August, the horse was thrown 
violently against the edgestone, breaking a leg, which necessitated 
his being killed upon the spot. This was a noble and high-spirited 
animal, the pet of Mr. Lovell, his driver, and a great favorite with 
the whole company. I trust the Committee on Fire Department will 
take early measures to strengthen this force by an early exchange 
of such horses as are unfitted by age or disability for such as are 
able to do the work of the department.

FIRE APPARATUS AT STATIONARY POINTS. 

HOSE CARRIAGES AND HOSE. 

There is apparatus, located at the following points, for the more 
immediate protection of the neighborhood, and without organized 
companies : — • 

One hose carriage, with two hundred and fifty feet of 2-inch- 
leather hose, at the City Hospital, on Harrison avenue, and under 
the care of the driver of Hose Company No. 4. 

One hose carriage at the Hook and Ladder house on Harrison 
avenue, with one thousand feet of hose.

ANNUAL PARADE. 

The two hundred and forty-second anniversary of the settlement 
of Boston was celebrated by the annual parade and inspection of 
the Fire Department, under the direction of the 'Joint Standing 
Committee, and was a credit to the department and satisfactory 
to the City Government and to our citizens. These parades are 
made at an expense of about $3,500 to the city, and are looked 
forward to by the firemen with pride and satisfaction. From the 
nature of the organization, the members of the Fire Department 
are prevented from participating in the enjoyments of our legal 
holidays, liable to -be called upon as they are at any moment. 
They readily comply with the request of the Chief and Committee 
to remain in or about their several houses upon the Fourth of July, 
and other public holidays, without additional compensation. 

While our City Government appropriates from $20,000 to 
$25, COO annually for the enjoyment of the citizens upon these 



Fire Department. 19 

holidays, the members of the Fire Department are thus in a great 
measure deprived from participating- in this enjoyment. 

It is true, and cannot be denied, that a large portion of our citi- 
zens derive more pleasure from witnessing the annual parades of 
the Fire Department, than from any other display provided by the 
city, even though at four times the cost, and I trust the City Coun- 
cil will see the wisdom of gratifying so large and useful a class of 
our fellow-citizens as compose the members of the Boston Fire 
Department, by continuing and encouraging the annual parades. 

FIRES. 

The past year has indeed been an eventful one in the history of

$1,516,549, as will be seen by the monthly tabular statement. 

THE FIRE OF THE 9tH OF NOVEMBER. 

On Saturday, November 9th, at twenty-four minutes past seven, 
an alarm of fire was sounded from Box 52. This was followed in 
rapid succession by four additional alarms, calling the entire 
working force of the department to the scene. The department 
rallied with a promptuess hardly to be expected under the circum- 
stances, the horses being disabled by the epidemic which prevailed 
so extensively at that time. 

The precaution which had been taken by the Board of Engineers 
aided greatly in meeting this emergency, and proved the wisdom 
of the measures that had been adopted. The fire broke out in the 
basement of the granite building cqrner of Summer and Kingston 
streets, owned by S. Klous, and occupied by Tebbetts, Baldwin & 
Davis as a dry goods house, and A. K. Young, hoop-skirt manu- 
ufacturer. The dimensions of this building were 100 bj- 50 feet, 
six stories in height, and mounted by a heavy Mansard roof. The 
fire, originating in the basement, had burned through the elevator 
to the upper story and through the roof. The illumination was 
seen by the police in the city of Charlestown, one mile distant, 
fourteen minutes before the first alarm was sounded in our city. 
To this unaccountable delay in giving the alarm, I attribute, in 
part, this most fearful fire, both in extent and loss, ever expe- 
rienced in the annals of our city. In this section of the city was 
centred the business wealth of Boston. 



Fire Department. 21 

These magnificent stores and massive warehouses were the pride 
of Boston merchants and architects. The price of land had be- 
come so high that every available foot was covered with buildings, 
carried to a great height. Many of these buildings, so massive in 
appearance,, were of the most combustible character, and covered 
by roofs which were highly inflammable. 

In ten minutes from the time the alarm was sounded I arrived 
on the ground, and found the condition of the fire as follows: 
The building in which the fire originated was literally consumed. 
The building on the same side, below, on Kingston street, was well 
on fire ; the adjoining building on Summer street was also on fire 
in the rear; and the building on the opposite side of Summer 
street was on fire in the attic stories. 

I found at work at this time the following companies : Engine 
Company No. 4, stationed at the corner of Summer and Kingston 
streets ; Engine Company No. 7 stationed on South street, and 
Hose Company No. 2, stationed on the corner of Bedford and 
Kingston streets. These companies were stationed at the best 
possible points for effective work, and were in charge of officers 
whose experience and judgment are held in high esteem, and who 
have served in this department with signal ability for the past 
quarter of a century. I refer to Captains Green, Jacobs and 
Regan. 

The efforts they had made and were at the time making, I fully 
approved of. The alarming proportions of the fire on my arrival 
assured me at once that the force at my command was entirely in- 
adequate. I immediately sent to Charlestown and Cambridge for 
aid. 

The entire supply of hose in the department was gathered from 
the several houses and brought to the fire ground. The Tug Boat 
" Louis Osborn" was immediately pressed into the service of the 
city and took her position at the B. H. & E. R. R. Wharf, foot of 
Summer street. Telegraphic despatches were also sent to the dif- 
ferent cities and towns for assistance, and these despatches were 
responded to with remarkable promptness. 

The wind varied from N. W. to N. with a velocity from five to 
nine miles to the hour. On the windward side the indraft of air 
through the burning streets assumed the character of a brisk wind 



22 City Dcument. — No. 58. 

attberate of sixteen or eighteen miles per hour, while the heat was 
so intense as to cause smoke, steam, etc., to be carried up in spirals 
to a great elevation. On the south side the induced currents were 
very strong, ranging from thirty to thirty-five miles per hour, 
carrying the fire bodily to the windward, which was the cause of 
the fire burning so rapidly, apparently, against the wind. These 
high winds permitted the indraft to rise at a considerable angle, 
leaving a large space of highly rarified air, inducing stronger cur- 
rent to flow in, which, meeting the indraft, gave it a whirlwind 
form. By this action the heat above the buildings was of the most 
intense character. 

The fire raged with fearful rapidity against the wind, as above 
described. This and the location of the hydrants made it impos- 
sible to mass any amount of force in one place. The peculiarity 
of the streets, which can be readily understood by a glance at the 
map, where hundreds of buildings were approachable only on one 
side, presented difficulties in themselves almost insurmountable ; 
but greatest and most disheartening of all was, that our engines, 
as powerful as any in the country, could not from our hydrants 
obtain a supply of water, and the work in many instances was 
futile on this account. Had the Government of past years listened 
to the request of the gentlemen who composed the Board of Engi- 
neers, and acted upon their suggestions, there would have been, in 
this section of our city, water-pipes and hydrants of a size com- 
mensurate with the wants of our steam department ; and, in the 
opinion of the Board of Engineers, had a line of the Lowry 
hydrants been placed on Summer and Franklin streets, upon 
water-pipes of sufficient size to supply them, the engineers of this 
department would have massed at these hydrants four steamers at 
each, with short lines of hose ; and the effect would not have les- 
sened the estimate of the power of the engines, but would have 
been a saving of millions of dollars to the city. 

In addition toour own department, in response to my call for aid, 
the following cities and towns responded, and the following table 
will show the number of engines, hose and hook and ladder carri- 
aces, the number of men, and the number of feet of hose furnished 
by each city and town. 

On their arrival, positions were assigned as fast as it was pos- 



Fire Department. 23 

sible so to do. Much difficulty was experienced on account of the 
different sized threads, as well as the difference in the size of the 
couplings, and the inability to connect thereby to our hydrants ; 
but changes were made with the least possible dela} 7 by sending 
our own apparatus to lrvdrants, and placing these companies at 
our reservoirs, where the}' were enabled to get a much better supply 
of water than it was possible for our own department to obtain 
from our hydrants.

GUNPOWDER. 

The use of gunpowder as an auxiliary in the extinguishment 
of fires has been a question of great interest. Information upon 
this matter has been sought for in every city in the country 
where it has been used. In every instance, the answer to our 
inquiry has been, " With us, it proved disastrous." Why it thus 
proved so was clearly set forth in the several letters recr'ved. 
The graphic representations given by the press of the exploits of 
General Sheridan, in saving from complete destruction the city of 
Chicago, by the demolition of buildings b} r powder, led me to seek 
a personal interview with him, in order to obtain all information 
that would enable me, in case of emergency, to act with positive 
knowledge, gained by the experience of its use in Chicago. 

To my inquiries, the general replied that he was sorry the 
country had been so misinformed ; that the statements published 
were but sensational reports without foundation ; that he was 
entirely opposed to the use of gunpowder as a means to prevent 
the spreading of fire, and that this opinion was confirmed by his 
observation of its use by parties in Chicago ; that he was satisfied 
that one steam fire engine was of more advantage than all the gun- 
powder there used. The parties who did use it in Chicago, claimed 
to have accomplished. a great work, and that they could have done 
a great deal more, had the privilege been given by the proper 
authorities in the earlier stages of the fire. These claims failed of 
endorsement by those best competent to judge. The only monu- 
ment of their exploits left was a block of five three-story dwell- 
ings, which had been blown up at the windward of the fire, and 
which, from absence of gas, did not ignite on account of the 
explosion. 

With these facts before them, the Board of Engineers carefully 
investigated the character and location of buildings in the sections 
of our city liable to a serious fire, and were unanimous in the 
opinion that gunpowder could not be used advantageously, where 
our streets were narrow, and lined with high buildings filled with 
merchandise. 

In order to accomplish the end desired, namely, to drop the 
building or buildings, there must be a cavity to drop them into ; 
this could be only had by removing the goods from each story 



Fire Department. 27 

above the basement. An attempt to blow up a building without first 
performing this work would simply blow the front and rear wall 
into the street, and drop the floors upon the merchandise, thereby 
preparing it for a ready bonfire. Again, the gas should be shut off 
from that section of the city where it was deemed desirable to 
use powder. Failing to shut off the gas, the gas-pipes in the 
several stories of the building exploded would be broken, and a 
full flow of gas from the street mains would permeate every part of 
the debris, so that the least spark or flicker of flame from the 
explosion, or from falling cinders, would ignite the entire mass. 
An explosion sufficient to throw the wall of any of our warehouses, 
would break eveiy pane of glass within one hundred feet of the 
building exploded, and make an open conduit for this increased 
body of flame to ignite, and set on fire all buildings within the 
distance named. In addition to this, the streets are blocked and 
made impassable, the firemen, for the time being, are forced back 
as a precautionary measure, and the time consumed in the prepa- 
ration, and waiting for the explosion, is of too much value to be 
estimated. Such, gentlemen, were the opinions formed and enter- 
tained by the Board of Engineers, as to the use of gunpowder. 
While entertaining these views, I realized this fact : that neither 
myself nor my associates had had any personal experience ; that 
our opinions were formed upon the experience of others, and, while 
commended to our own judgments, yet, in this matter, exceptions 
were taken to our judgment by some of our most influential and 
respectable citizens ; and I determined to make a trial of gun- 
powder, to arrest, if possible, the onward march of the flames. 
At 11 o'clock I gave the order to a messenger, to notify Captains 
Green and Smith to report to me at once. In as short a 
time as possible for them to comply, these gentlemen reported. 
I issued the necessary orders to them, in reference to bring- 
ing a supply of powder. They started to execute my order at 
once, and in due time reported to me, with the powder. Having 
no authority to use gunpowder, in any emergency, unless by the 
consent of two of my associate engineers, I summoned them to 
report to me at my head-quarters for the time being, on Federal 
street. I stated, upon their assembling, that the demand of our 
citizens was that we should use gunpowder as an auxiliary aid in 



28 City Document. — No. 58. 

the staying of this fire. They deprecated its use, but felt that the 
demand must be complied with, to satisfy the citizens of Boston. 
I stated to them that I had ordered the powder, but the statutes 
and ordinances of the city had placed the authority in their hands, 
whether it should be used or not ; when, on motion of Captain 
Smith, the following vote was passed : " That the chief be author- 
ized to use gunpowder, if, in his judgment, it will in an}' way tend 
to save the city from destruction." His Honor the Mayor was 
present at this time, with Alderman Jenks, and Alderman Woolle}^, 
Chairman of the Committee on Fire Department, to whom the 
dangers, liability, and responsibility of the' use of gunpowder were 
fully set forth. His Honor the Mayor was then asked, whether, 
in the carrying out of this vote to use powder, the government 
would sustain the action ; he replied : " The government will sus- 
tain you in all reasonable measures for the suppression of this 
fire ; but I charge you in its use to exercise due care for the 
saving of life." I then entered upon the work, and called Captains 
Green and Smith to aid and assist in selecting and mining build- 
ings. The building was selected and mined. This building 
possessed advantages for the work, from the fact that a part of the 
upper story was vacant. A battery of water was brought up and 
secured ready to operate. At this juncture one of our city police 
notified me that His Honor the Mayor desired my presence at the 
City Hall. It was with extreme reluctance at this time that I obeyed 
the summons, but feeling that the chief executive officer of our city 
had a right to command my presence, I obeyed. On arriving at 
the City Hall, I found the front door closed. I had ordered this 
door open, for the purpose of receiving goods of a valuable char- 
acter, which I had ordered to this building. I insisted upon hav- 
ing the door opened, and then reported to His Honor the Mayor. 
Upon presenting myself at the Mayor's office, I asked what was 
wanted ; when I was answered by Mr. Burt, who said, "We want 
the Common opened, and we wish to organize men for the purpose 
of removing goods and blowing up buildings." I answered that I 
was ready to receive any assistance in the direction named ; that 
I had already commenced operations ; that buildings were being 
blown up, that powder was upon the ground, and more was in 
transit. I then asked who were the men that wished to aid and 



Fire Department. 29 

assist in this work ; and several, gentlemen volunteered their ser- 
vices. It ^as suggested that, to enable them to pass the lines, 
and to accomplish the work, they should have a written passport 
and authority, which I granted ; that being clone, I retired from 
the hall, to resume mj r duties upon the fire-ground. 

There were some explosions of buildings by the use of gunpow- 
der, but they were far less in number, and had much less effect in 
staying the spread of the fire, than was claimed by parties who, 
by virtue of sensational reports, similar to those relating to Gen. 
Sheridan, may, by some persons, be supposed to have assisted in 
saving the city from destruction. 

The use of gunpowder in this district was contrary to my judg- 
ment. The experience of the 10th of November fully confirmed 
this opinion. If, however, in the opinion of the City Council, gun- 
powder should be brought into requisition, or any explosive sub- 
stance, as a means to prevent the spreading of fire, I would recom- 
mend to your honorable body that the law be so changed that the 
authority should be given to the party to use it who has the 
responsibility upon him for its use, without being obliged to hold 
a meeting and get the consent to its use, as is now the case. I 
would also recommend that the subject be submitted to a commis- 
sion, who shall report what, in their opinion, is the best explosive 
under the circumstances, that could be used for the demolition of 
buildings, and that certain members of the department be thor- 
oughly educated in the use as well as the strength of the explo- 
sive recommended, to the end that just so much be used as is 
requisite to drop the building or buildings, as the exigency should 
demand. In this connection I would also recommend that an alarm 
signal be adopted by the City Council, which should, at the request 
of the Chief Engineer, or Engineer in command, or His Honor the 
Mayor, be a signal call for the several companies of militia to 
report to their armories and to await further orders. This request 
would prove to be invaluable to the citizens of Boston in the pro- 
tection of goods, and preserving, in conjunction with our police, 
order and quiet in such cases of emergency. 

I would also recommend, if it is deemed desirable by your hon- 
orable body to use explosives, that a magazine be built, accessible 
within five minutes' time, said magazine to be of sufficient size to 
contain the necessary shores, tools, etc., for immediate use.

Fire Department. 33 

Richard W". Kane, a member of Hose Co. No. 10, died of con- 
sumption, Oct. 21st. Mr. Kane joined the department February, 
1872. 

ACCIDENTS TO CITIZENS CAUSED BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

Feb. 9th. Hose Carriage No. 9, in going to the fire on Border 
street, East Boston, ran over a man on the corner of Border and 
Eutaw streets. 

ACCIDENTS TO CITIZENS. 

May 13th. D. W. Appleton who was locked up in the police 
station on Walnut street, Ward 16, was so badly burned that he 
died from the effects. 

July 7th. Mrs. Benedicta G-ueneo was fatally burned by the 
explosion of a kerosene lamp at the fire No. 32 Ferry street. 

Aug. 18th. Mary Ann Fahy was badly burned by the explosion 
of a kerosene lamp at the fire in Centre Place, South Boston. 

Nov. 8th. Thomas Corrigan employed by the Boston Oakum 
Co. on Norfolk avenue, Highlands, was burned to death. 

Dec. 26th. M. F. Murphy (a gas fitter) was seriously burned 
about the hands and face while attempting to fix the gas pipe at 
the National House. 

The fate of our associates who perished during the efforts made 
for the preservation of our city from the fire of Nov. 9th and 10th, 
I recall with sorrowful emotions. The remembrance inspires 
feelings deeper than are ordinarily awakened by examples of 
individual sacrifice. We mourn for them as firemen, as fellow, 
citizens, as friends, as brothers. We grieve for their stricken 
homes. We sympathize with those who loved them. In their 
relation to the public as firemen they displayed a loyalty that was 
ready to sacrifice their lives, if need be, in the faithful performance 
of their duty. Around them clustered all that is dear to the heart 
of man : the fondest love, the brightest hopes, the solemn trusts 
of home. But other homes were in danger, and nobly they fought 
the raging elements, proving that the darkest page of material 
misfortune may be the brightest in the record of patriotic 
example. 

Calm in the hour of peril, firm even on the brink of death, they 



34 Citt Document. — No. 58. 

groped their way amid dense smoke and scorching heat, making 
almost superhuman efforts to rescue the treasures of our merchants' 
stores and -warehouses from destruction. Such self-sacrifice and 
devotion can never be forgotten, but will continue to live in the 
memories of a grateful people. Peers of the heroes of all times, 
the gratitude that cannot reach them will seek in the desolated 
homes those who have suffered the greatest bereavement. Equally 
we mourn for those who, hastening from abroad, came to our rescue, 
and with the highest magnaminity went side by side with us, and 
fell in the conflict. Gratitude for their heroic devotion presses our 
hearts. In lite they belonged to other communities, but the death 
sacrifice has made them ours forever. 

firemen's fund. 

The gratitude and generosity of Boston's noble men is manifest, 
overwhelmed as they were with grief at the terrible calamity that 
had befallen our city. Hardly had the limits of this terrible fire 
been established, when the department was made the recipient 
of checks ranging from one to ten thousand dollars each, until the 
magnificent sum of one hundred thousand dollars and upwards has 
been realized, for the benefit of firemen who lost their lives or who 
were injured at this fire. Of this amount over eighty thousand 
dollars has been placed in the hands of a Board of Trustees, of 
which the Hon. Martin Brimmer is President. The action taken 
by this board, in looking after and caring for the widows and 
orphans, meets my heartiest approval. There was also sent to 
the Chief Engineer over twenty thousand dollars, five thousand of 
which was paid, as requested, to the Charitable Association of the 
Boston Fire Department, the balance to be used for the benefit of 
the firemen who were injured, and the families of those who were 
killed, according to the judgment and discretion of the Chief. 

LIFE INSURANCE. 

An order from the City Council was received, asking the Board 
of Engineers to consider and report what steps were necessary to 
be taken to insure the lives of the members of the Boston Fire 
Department. After careful deliberation on the part of the board it

was deemed inexpedient to recommend action to the City C>uncil. 
The lowest estimate of those obtained from several Life Insurance 
Companies would cost the city the sum of $20,000 annually, to 
insure the lives of the members of the department in the sum of 
$1,000 each. It was recommended by the Board of Engineers, that 
the department mutually insure themselves. This recommend- 
ation was adopted, and an organization was accordingly com- 
pleted on the 3d of February, 1872. The plan adopted was that 
each member be insured to an amount equal to $2.00 from each 
member of the organization. 

The following deaths have occurred during the year, and the 
amounts set against the names paid to the widow or next legal 
heir. Joseph W. Sweat, $674.00 ; Richard W. Kane, $776.00 ; 
Thomas Young, $782,00 ; William Farry, $780.00 ; Daniel Cochrane, 
$780.00. 

The report of the Treasurer of the Charitable Association of the 
Boston Fire Department for the year 1872, with a list of officers 
elected for the year 1873, is here appended.

HOUSES. 

The houses of this department are under the charge of the 
Superintendent of Public Buildings, and are in excellent condition, 
with the exceptions of those occupied by Hose Company No. 5, 
and Hook and Ladder Company No. 4. During the past year, 
Engine Company No. 4, Extinguisher Corps No. 1, and tbeTnsur- 
ance Brigade have been located, in connection with the National 
Lancers, in a building on Bulfmch street, at a cost of $54,723.54, 
and cost of land of $55,000. Contracts have also been signed for 
buildings as follows : — 

Hose House at South Boston Point for Hose Company No. 12 ; 
an Engine House on Dudley street, Highlands, for Engine Com- 
pany No. 12, and an Engine House on the corner of Warren and 
Quincy streets, Highlands, for Engine Company No. 22. 

PEACE JUBILEE. 

During the time of the concerts at the Coliseum, there were sta- 
tioned in a building built expressly for the purpose and adjoining 
that of the main building, two of our steam fire-engines, viz. : 
Nos. 12 and 21, which were kept in constant readiness night and 
clay for immediate use. The hose was coupled to the engines, and 
run over the building at different points ; steam was also constantly 
kept up by means of circulating water-heaters. In the daytime, 
during the concerts, members of the department were stationed 
upon the roof with the lines of hose from the engines. There 
were detailed from this department, daily, nineteen men, who did 
patrol duty in and about the building, watching for fire day and 
night, and who took charge of the sick and fainting ; the latter 
duty was performed at the " Head-quarters of the Fire Department," 
which was generally pretty full of sick and fainting ladies. The 
Anvil Chorus, one of the features of the concerts, was performed 
by one hundred members of the department, under the leadership

Fire Department. 41 

CONCLUSION. 

To the officers and members of this department I desire to re- 
turn my heartfelt gratitude for the faithful and efficient manner in 
which they have discharged every duty assigned them the past 
year ; and especially do I thank them for the able and efficient 
manner in which they discharged their duties on the ninth and 
tenth of November, and the subsequent week, working bravely, 
skilfully, and heroicalty, for victory, toiling night and day, permut- 
ing neither danger nor exhaustion to shake their determination 
to conquer in the terrible battle they were waging, reflect- 
ing honor and credit upon our organization, commanding the re- 
spect of their officers as well as our fellow-citizens. To them and 
their noble brothers, who came to our aid, is due the salvation of 
our city, which entitles all to the warmest gratitude. Their efforts 
stand out strangely in contrast to that class in our community 
whose occupation consists in grumbling, and whose engineering 
capacity is so largely developed that these years of experience and 
faithful service to the city is of no moment compared with their 
engineering qualities of mushroom growth since the fire. 

I desire to return my sincere thanks to His Honor the Mayor, 
and the members of the City Council, for the aid and assistance 
rendered me in those trying days, of the November fire. 

To the members of the Police Force, I desire to return my heart- 
felt acknowledgments, 

To the Joint Standing Committee on Fire Department, for the 
careful attention given to the requirements of the department, for 
their cordial support and endorsement ; and also for the able, 
prompt, and cheerful manner in which they have given me their 
co-operation during the year, I return my sincere and heartfelt 
thanks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN S. DAMRELL, 

Chief Engineer.

RULES FOR THE DISTRIBUTION 

OF 

THE FIRE APPARATUS. 



Engineer's Office, Fire Department, 
Boston, January 1, 1873. 

To the Officers and Members of the Fire Department : — 

Gentlemen, — The new method of striking the Fire Alarm 
renders it necessary that the rules for the distribution of the 
apparatus should be explained, that it may be distinctly under- 
stood. 

The accompanying document is furnished, definitely stating the 
numbers of each box, and their location, and with explanations 
for your guidance and instruction. 

JOHN S. DAMRELL, 
Chief Engineer Boston Fire Department. 



92 City Document. — No. 58. 



CITY OF BOSTON. 



FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 

Alarms are sounded by striking the number of the box upon the 
Alarm Bells, and upon the Gongs, in the Engine Houses. 

Examples : To announce the existence of a fire near Box No. 
41 (Old South Church), the bells will strike four, make a pause of 
a few seconds, then strike one, thus : 4 — 1. This will be repeated 
at intervals of about one minute. 

For a fire near Box No. 145 (South Boston Point), the bells will 
strike one, make a pause, then strike four, another pause, then 
strike Jive, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows. Third 
Alarms are sounded by striking twelve blows twice, thus : 12 — 
12. 

In cases where the entire department are required, alarms are 
sounded by striking twelve blows three times, thus : 12 — 12 — 
12. 

In cases where Hook and Ladder Companies only are wanted, 
signal to be given by striking ten blows once, with the number of 
the Company struck twice, thus : Hook and Ladder No. one, 10 — 
1 — 1. Hook and Ladder No. four, 10 — 4 — 4. Hook and 
Ladder No. seven, 10 — 7 — 7. 

If more than one Hook and Ladder Company is wanted, the 
signal will be given thus : Hook and Ladder one and three, 10 — 
1 — 1—3—3. Hook and Ladder two and four, 10— 2—2—4 
— 4. Hook and Ladder five and seven, 10 — 5 — 5 — 7 — 7. 

No person will give alarms for the same fire (after the first 
alarm has been given), without an order from an Engineer, and 
the person so ordered will be sure to go to the same box from which 
the first alarm was given, and report the same to the Chief Engi- 
neer.

DIRECTIONS TO THOSE HOLDING SIGNAL KEYS. 

If a fire is discovered, go to the nearest Box to the fire. Pull 
the slide all the way down once, and let go. If possible, wait at 
the Box, so as to direct the Firemen to the fire. If you hear no 
reply on the Bells, pull again. If no reply after the third trial, 
go to the nearest Box. The Police, upon hearing the Bells, will 
spring their rattles, and call the number of the Box. 

CAUTIONS. 

1. Be sure there is a fire before sounding the alarm. 

2. Never sound the alarm for a fire seen at a distance. 

3. Never open the Box or touch the apparatus, except in case 

of fire.

5. Never let the key go. out of your possession, unless called 
for by the Superintendent. 

6. If you remove from your house or place of business, return 
the key to the Fire Alarm Office. Don't leave it with the new 
tenant.
