Boston, February 15, 1900. 

Hon. Thomas N. Hart, 

Mayor of the City of Bostons 

Sir, — In compliance with the requirements of section 24, 
of chapter 3 of the Revised Ordinances, the Board of Elec- 
tion Commissioners respectfully submits its annual report 
for the year 1899. 

At the beginning of the year the figures submitted by us 
to the Board of Estimate and Apportionment as our estimated 
requirements for the year were based upon the probability of 
an unusually heavy registration, owing to the fact that the 
contest for the mayoralty nomination, particularly in one of 
the two leading political parties, would bring out a large 
number of voters at the caucuses, and the experience of this 
department warranted us in assuming that as the registration 
increased so the cost of carrying on the department became 
greater. Though the amount allowed by the Board of Esti- 
mate and Apportionment was $9,500 less than our figures, 
it was our good fortune to carry on the department, not only 
within the amount allowed, but to have a substantial balance 
left to our credit, as was the case also the preceding year. 
This result was brought about only by exercising great care 
in our expenditures and it has been demonstrated to our sat- 
isfaction that the additional demands upon this office in the 
years of heavy registration can be met successfully without 



2 City Document No. 13. 

a great increase in the office force. The supplementary regis- 
tration was very heavy in September, owing to the Act of 
1898, chapter 548, section 20, which provides that there 
shall be no supplementary assessment after October first. 
During the month of September the registration was done 
entirely at the central office, and for most of that month the 
office was kept open, in connection with the assessors' office, 
until ten o'clock in the evening in response to the claim that 
many of those seeking to be assessed and registered had 
neither the time nor opportunity to attend to it during the 
day. It may be thought advisable in the future to provide 
places for evening registration in co-operation with the Assess- 
ing Department in the different wards during September to 
relieve the central office. If such places are provided, the 
number of evenings usually provided for registration in the 
different wards prior to the State and City elections may be 
reduced, so that no additional expenditure will be necessary 
to make such provision. 

The number of male voters on the first printed list made 
up from the assessors' returns to this department was 84,967. 
There were 15,524 names added prior to the State election 
and 2,334 names added before the city election making after 
the necessary revision the total number of male voters regis- 
tered for the city election 102,875, thus exceeding the simi- 
lar registration in 1897 of 102,473, which up to that time 
was the largest in the history of the city. At the city elec- 
tion in 1897 79,763 votes were cast for mayor, and in 1899 
81,341 votes were cast for the same office, the latter being 
the highest number of votes cast in this city for mayor. In 
1896 out of the total registration of 96,746 male voters 
82,198 votes^ were cast for president and 80,405 votes for 
governor. There was no mayor elected that year so the 
comparison of votes cast cannot be further extended. 

Caucuses and Elections. 

The Act of 1899, chapter 346, regulating the holding of 
caucuses reduced the number of caucuses held in Boston from 
seven to four for the two leading political parties. The sepa- 
rate caucuses for choosing a ward and city committee, and 
the separate caucuses for the nomination of candidates for 
representatives to the General Court and for the Common 
Council are no longer held as formerly by one of the two 
leading political parties, but their nominations are made at 
one or the other of the two regular caucuses. The interval 
between the State and City elections is so short that in order 
to comply with the requirements of law with regard to issu- 
ing the call for caucuses prior to the city election, and with 



Election Department. 3 

regard to filing certificates of nomination and nomination 
papers, the caucuses of the two leading political parties were 
held in the past year on successive evenings in the same 
place, and created some embarrassment in making proper 
arrangements for the caucuses held on the second evening. In 
two wards the votes cast in the caucuses on the first evening 
were not counted until the afternoon of the second day, and 
in one of these wards the caucus officers had not completed 
the count and return of votes cast until nearly two hours after 
the time fixed for the beginning of the second caucus. This 
condition of affairs could have been prevented by agreement 
of the two parties not to call their caucuses on successive 
evenings, but in the absence of any such agreement, without 
a change in the law the same embarrassment is likely to 
arise again. 

The Socialist Labor party having established itself as a 
political party in accordance with law, by the vote cast for 
its candidate for governor in 1898, held caucuses for the 
first time during the past .year. On account of failure to 
comply with the provisions of law, no caucuses were held by 
this party prior to the State election, but a call was season- 
ably issued for caucuses in all the wards of the city prior to 
the City election, and suitable and convenient places were 
provided by us for holding such caucuses. In some of the 
wards it was understood by us, and it proved to be the case, 
that no nominations were to be made, yet it became neces- 
sary to provide a blank ballot in such cases, and to equip the 
polling places as if a caucus were to be held. No ballots 
were cast in these wards, and we submit that some change in 
the law should be made whereby it will be necessary to pro- 
vide polling places only in such wards where nominations 
are made and printed on a ballot furnished by this depart- 
ment, notwithstanding the original call for the caucuses 
included all the wards. 

In addition to the caucuses and elections above referred 
to, a caucus and election were held in the Thirteenth Suffolk 
Representative District, to fill a vacancy caused by the death, 
previous to the meeting of the Legislature, of the candidate 
chosen at the State election. 

The caucus officers have as a rule performed their work 
satisfactorily, and the conduct of the caucuses shows from 
year to year a great improvement. Unusually large caucuses 
were held the past year, and the returns generally were 
prompt and accurate. Whether any further improvement 
could be accomplished by providing compensation for such 
officers, is a matter worthy of serious consideration. 

It is claimed that where such officers are paid voluntarily 



4 City Document No. 13. 

by the ward committees better service is given. If the law 
required that some compensation should be paid to such 
officers, either by the political parties or by the city, it would 
undoubtedly be welcome to such as already perform their 
whole duty, and perhaps secure greater efficiency throughout 
the city. 

The election officers, too, have generally served the city 
faithfully and well the past year. In each of the 191 pre- 
cincts in the city we appointed a warden, clerk and four 
inspectors, representing equally the two leading political 
parties, and 1,146 such officers were appointed and qualified, 
after being gathered together in different sections of the city 
to be instructed as to their duties. With so large a number 
it is not surprising that a few cases of dereliction of duty 
should arise, but these are dealt with summarily. Two 
election officers were discharged during the past year during 
the progress of the election, as their conduct and condition 
were such as to disqualify them from further service, and one 
officer who was nominated from the floor to fill a vacancy 
was removed upon complaint, which was sustained, that he 
was not affiliated with the political party which he was 
chosen to represent. As against these cases of malfeasance 
in the discharge of their duty, it can be said that the great 
majority of our election officers, many of whom serve from 
year to year, are loyal to the public and to the party which 
they represent, and their work is uniformly characterized by 
promptness, honesty and accuracy. In addition to the six 
election officers regularly appointed to serve in each precinct, 
the same number of deputies are also appointed in accord- 
ance with law, and we experienced some difficulty in secur- 
ing the presence of these deputies prior to the election in 
order that they might be instructed as to their duties and 
sworn to faithfully and impartially discharge the same, 
which is necessary before they are entitled to receive com- 
pensation for their services. As very few of them are called 
upon to fill the places of regulars at the elections, the great 
majority of those who qualify receive one dollar and fifty 
cents for reporting at the opening of the polls, which is the 
only duty required of them. 

Our opinion previously expressed that these deputy elec- 
tion officers should be dispensed with and the money now 
paid them saved is strengthened by the experience of the 
department the past year. 

The difference in the number of male voters in the several 
precincts has become so great as to call for some change in 
the existing conditions. The ward lines will be changed again 
in five years, but the precinct lines should be changed at once, 



Election Department. 5 

if additional precincts are not deemed advisable. With the 
191 existing precincts the average of male voters based upon 
the registration at the city election of 102,875 would be 539. 
The number of voters in the precincts varies from 863 to 234, 
while 104 precincts contain less than 539 male voters and 
87 precincts over that number. We are of the opinion that if 
enough additional precincts were provided to make the whole 
number 250 the best results would be accomplished ; with 
the registration at the present figures there would then be 
an average of 411 voters in each precinct, and this number 
would ensure a more prompt return of votes cast. The 
rapid growth and development of the suburban wards have 
caused them to exceed greatly the number of voters in most 
of the old wards ; and by an examination of the tables in the 
following pages it will be noticed that there is a wide vari- 
ance in the number of voters in each ward, the highest 
number being 5,915 and the lowest 2,730. This would seem 
to warrant an immediate change in the ward lines if such a 
course were authorized by law. 

Election Booths and Polling Places. 

In our last annual report we stated at some length the 
reasons which made it necessary to purchase one hundred 
voting booths made of thin corrugated steel, and we then 
admitted that the severe test given these booths at the city 
election in December, 1898, when the weather was unusually 
trying and the temperature at zero, proved conclusively that 
they were not adapted for use in such weather as is likely to 
occur at the time of the city election. The matter of mak- 
ing them comfortable at such times was considered, and it 
was decided to have the sides and top lined with thin wooden 
sheathing, and we believe they are now so equipped as to 
fully and satisfactorily answer the purpose for which they 
were built, although the weather at the last city election was 
mild and afforded no opportunity for a thorough test. The 
expense of making this change was greater than we expected, 
but was largely covered by the amount received the past year 
from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for moving, fitting 
up and repairing the old wooden booths belonging to this 
department which were loaned in 1898 during the war with 
Spain for the use of the State troops enlisting into the service 
of the government. Until we are again allowed the use of 
the school buildings for polling places the public must be 
contented with the accommodations and facilities offered by 
these booths. 



City Document No. 13. 



Recounts. 



The reduction in the number of caucuses held in this city 
by one of the leading political parties before referred to has 
reduced somewhat the number of petitions for recounts of 
votes cast at caucuses, but there has been no falling off in 
the number of petitions for recounts of votes cast at elections. 

On the whole such recounts have been conducted with little 
friction, and apparently to the satisfaction of all parties. 
Owing to the other demands upon the office at the busy sea- 
son and the limited office force it has been necessary to 
recount votes on the Sabbath day on two occasions much to 
our regret and annoyance. We hope it will not again be 
necessary to do this. In 1898 a change was made in conduct- 
ing the general recount after the city election by securing 
a large and well lighted hall in the immediate vicinity of our 
offices, and employing an extra force of skilled clerks that the 
work might be more quickly done than in the small and 
poorly ventilated room connected with our offices where such 
recounts had been previously conducted. So successful were 
the results that we conducted the general recount after the 
last city election in the same hall which had sufficient floor 
space to allow the placing of fifteen tables, at each of which 
two clerks were assigned representing the two leading politi- 
cal parties. We were enabled also to accommodate the large 
number of candidates interested by giving them full repre- 
sentation, and we believe that until the law is changed so 
that some limitation shall be placed upon the right to peti- 
tion for a recount the method of conducting a general recount 
of the votes of the city, thus followed by us, is the one 
which gives the greatest satisfaction to the public, and accom- 
plishes the best results. 

The abuse or" the right to petition for a recount does not 
diminish. Numerous petitions are filed, signed by the ten 
required voters, who make oath to the truth of their petition 
which sets forth that a recount would affect the result, 
whereas in truth and in fact the margin is so great that no 
such change could naturally be expected. As the recount 
progresses, it is found that an inspection of the ballots, 
particularly of caucus ballots, is only desired, and by the 
admission of interested parties present it is evident that 
there is no expectation that the result will be changed. If 
a penalty were imposed by statute upon petitioners in such 
cases we believe that the abuse above set forth would be 
greatly modified. 

Nine complaints for illegal registration were filed with 
this department during the past year, and but two com- 



Election Department. 7 

plaints in 1898, which would indicate that the lists of voters 
as prepared by us on the whole contain only such names as 
are entitled to be placed thereon. Of the nine complaints 
in 1899, in two cases no warrant was issued, as the evidence 
submitted was deemed insufficient. In the remaining seven 
cases warrants were issued, and after hearings conducted in 
accordance with the new method of procedure established by 
the Legislature of 1898, five of these complaints were dis- 
missed, in two instances from the failure of the complaining 
parties to further prosecute. The evidence in two cases was 
adjudged sufficient, and the names were stricken from the 
lists. We again urge the passage of a law which shall give 
the complainants in this class of cases authority to summon 
witnesses, and an adequate penalty should be attached to the 
failure to respond to such summons. 

During the past year objections in writing were filed with 
us as the Ballot Law Commission of the city of Boston in 
seven cases, all of which were objections to the nominations 
of aldermanic candidates. We were called upon to hear 
and determine four of these cases, objections in the other 
three being withdrawn before reached. Of the cases heard 
three were unanimously decided adversely to the objectors, 
and in one case the designation of the candidate was ad- 
judged not to be within the statute and the objections were 
sustained and the name of the candidate was not printed on 
the ballot. 

Jurors. 

The system of preparing the jury list by this Board was 
set forth at length in our report last year, and certain sug- 
gestions were made which, in our opinion, if carried out, 
would be an improvement on the present system. It is our 
aim to prepare a list which shall contain men of the character 
and intelligence desired for such service, and we exercise 
great care in the selection, and during the past year we have 
received no complaint that the jurors drawn for service had 
not the requisite qualifications, which is some evidence that 
the present system works well. We agree with the Attorney- 
General that the exempted class is too large, and are in- 
clined to join in his opinion that if the term of service were 
further reduced, active business men who object to serving 
on the jury, but whose experience and judgment especially 
fit them for such service would be less incommoded. It is 
claimed, too, that a large number of our intelligent citizens 
do not register as voters because they wish to escape jury 
service. A partial remedy for this would be to prepare the 



8 City Document No. 13. 

jury list from the list of assessed polls, but we see so many 
objections to the latter course that we cannot recommend 
any such change. 

Under the law a person who is drawn and serves is ex- 
empt for three years, but there is no requirement that clerks 
of courts send to us the names of jurors who actually serve. 
Our practice is therefore to follow the list of persons drawn 
sent to us by the city clerk and mark such names as exempt 
for three years. It is known that some of those drawn do 
not report on account of temporary illness, or for some other 
good cause, and others are excused by the Court for reasons 
then judged sufficient, but who might be required to serve 
at another time. The law could be more strictly adminis- 
tered by us if the names of persons serving were thus sub- 
mitted to us. 

A few changes in the law have been suggested in the pre- 
ceding pages, but in no instance do we believe the public 
would suffer greatly if the suggestions were not acted upon 
immediately. The laws regarding caucuses and elections are 
now fairly understood, and in the main are working well. If 
the Election Act of 1898 is to be further amended or modified 
it should be done, in our opinion, only when serious defects 
are discovered in the operation of the law which can be 
remedied only by new legislation. In this connection we 
desire to cite a few additional instances of defects in the law 
which have come to our attention during the past year. 

At the caucus in one of the wards prior to the city election 
two lists of delegates to the mayoralty convention appeared 
on the ballot as pledged to the same candidate while the 
candidate of the opposition had one delegation only. It was 
claimed, and from the evidence disclosed at the recount, the 
claim seemed to be justified, that but one of the two dele- 
gates pledged to the same candidate was filed by the sup- 
porters of that candidate, while the other was filed with the 
intention of confusing and deceiving the voters and thereby 
secure the election of the delegation pledged to the opposing 
candidate. If such were the purpose the scheme was success- 
fully carried out. A bill is pending before the Legislature 
(House No. 245) to allow the person, to whom such a delega- 
tion is described as pledged or favorable, the right to have 
such designation or description stricken from the nomination 
papers before the ballot is printed. If this bill should 
become a law the relief desired would be accomplished. 

The district system of electing aldermen provided by 
chapter 355 of the Acts of 1899 became operative the past 
year, and the contests for the caucus nominations in several 



Election Department. 9 

of the districts were very warm. Following the caucuses 
numerous nomination papers in the interest of independent 
candidates were circulated for the required signatures and 
then filed with us that the number of legal voters appearing 
thereon might be certified. The papers were then returned 
to the persons filing the same or their duly authorized 
representatives and when the required number of legal voters 
was obtained, the nomination papers were finally filed with 
this department. On the last day provided for filing nomina- 
tion papers prior to the city election one of these papers 
which had been duly certified was returned to the person 
who said he had filed the same, and who signed in a book 
provided for the purpose the name of the person who was 
the filer of the paper. It appeared almost immediately 
thereafter that the paper had been obtained by fraud, but the 
culprit had disappeared, and in the crowded condition of the 
office at the time an accurate description of him could not be 
given the police who were called upon to apprehend the 
criminal, and any possible accomplices. Though suspicion 
pointed to certain persons we were unable to procure suffi- 
cient evidence to warrant an arrest. The would-be candi- 
date who was thus defrauded petitioned for the right to have 
his name placed on the official ballot, but under the circum- 
stances, though anxious to do so, after careful inquiry, we 
decided we could not grant the relief desired in the premises. 
Hereafter in addition to the usual precautions taken against 
such deceit we shall give a receipt to the person so filing a 
nomination paper for certification of the signatures, and shall 
return the paper only on presentation of the receipt or to the 
candidate in person if he is known to us. We believe such 
a practice will prevent a similar occurrence, and do not con- 
sider that any legislation on the subject is called for. 

A practice of filing independent nomination papers con- 
taining the same surname as that of the candidate nominated 
at the caucus has arisen, and if these papers are not filed in good 
faith, but if as is claimed, for the sole purpose of defeating the 
regular candidate, we believe it to be an abuse of the law 
which should be remedied. If objections to such independent 
nomination papers for candidates to be voted for at the city 
election were made before this Board sitting as the Ballot 
Law Commission on the grounds above set forth it could be 
determined whether the statute defining the duties of the 
Commission were broad enough to consider such objections. 
If the statute does not confer such power it would seem 
advisable to have it so amended that the regular nominated 
candidate may not be defeated by any such questionable 
practice. 



10 City Document No. 13. 

The same Christian name as well as surname, it is claimed, 
also, has been used for the purpose mentioned above, which 
is even a more objectionable feature of this practice. 

It has been found that the operation of section 128 of the 
Election Act of 1898, which provides for the appointment 
by this Board of additional caucus officers, has not in most 
cases accomplished the results desired. Instead of the fac- 
tion in the party without representation behind the rail 
obtaining these officers the drawing by lot has often given a 
majority of these five additional caucus officers in each ward 
to the faction in control of the rail. Yet we believe a 
further trial of the law should be given rather than to repeal 
a statute so recently enacted. 

Two important matters of great interest to the public are 
before the Legislature, and we hope will receive serious con- 
sideration. The holding of primary elections has for some 
time been favored by many on the ground that it would cure 
existing abuses of the caucus laws. If but one caucus 
should be held prior to the State election and one caucus 
before the city election at which all political parties shall 
select candidates there would be a substantial saving of ex- 
pense to the city. The details of such a new system, such as 
the printing of a single ballot or separate ballots for each 
political party, the selection of officers to preside and con- 
duct the caucus and the proper safeguards to regulate the en- 
rolment of the voters with the different parties are matters to 
be deliberately considered and passed upon only after such 
careful consideration. 

The proposition to change the sj^stem of placing the names 
of candidates for the same office now placed alphabetically on 
the official ballot at caucuses and elections is one in which 
the public have a deep interest. There is no doubt but that 
the names having the first places on the ballot receive an 
undue advantage on this account. A bill is before the Legis- 
lature providing that in this city the arrangement of names 
on the ballots in elections shall be decided by lot, the dra wing- 
to take place under the direction of this Board in the presence 
of the different candidates, and if such a change is desired by 
the public it seems to us an entirely feasible proposition. 

There have been several changes in the Board during the 
past year. In October, 1899, Hon. Joseph J. Corbett, in ac- 
cordance with a fixed determination of many months' standing, 
resigned as a member of the Board. The resignation of Mr. 
Corbett was deeply regretted by his remaining associates. 
He brought to the discharge of his duties an experience that 
rendered him peculiarly well qualified to fill the office, and 
during the eighteen months that he was with us the depart- 



Election Department. 11 

ment benefited distinctly by his services, and by his retire- 
ment the city suffered the loss of a capable, experienced and 
upright official. 

- Upon the retirement of Mr. Corbett, the Mayor, acting 
under the provisions of the Revised Ordinances, designated 
Mr. John H. Donovan of the Assessing Department to tem- 
porarily discharge the duties of Election Commissioner. 
Such duties were faithfully and intelligently performed by 
Mr. Donovan, who continued as acting Election Commis- 
sioner until after the recount which followed the city election, 
when Hon. Patrick J. Kennedy was appointed Commissioner 
for the unexpired term. 

Expenses. 

At the beginning of the year the Board submitted as an 
estimate of the probable expenditures of the department the 
sum of $137,000, and the Board of Estimate and Appor- 
tionment allowed therefor the sum of $127,500. A fur- 
ther sum of $5,006.62 was received from the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts in payment of expenses incurred by this 
department in fitting up the wooden booths for army pur- 
poses, and for damages and loss of property, which sum was 
credited to this department's appropriation ; and a balance to 
the account of Special Loan for new steel voting-booths and 
furnishings of $404.27 gave to our appropriation for the year 
1899 a total sum of $132,910.89. 

There has actually been expended by this department dur- 
ing the year 1899, chargeable to the regular appropriation the 
sum of $126,892.44 and on account of the special loan for 
new voting-booths the balance from loan of $404.27, or a 
total expenditure of $127,296.71. There remains, therefore, 
to the credit of this department the sum of $5,614.18. 

The expenditures of the department in detail for the finan- 
cial year ending January 31, 1900, are as follows : 

Salaries : 
Commissioners . . . . $14,13767

The following pages show in tabulated form the number 
of assessed polls, registered voters and votes cast in this city 
at the State, municipal and one special election held in 1899. 
The arrangement of some of the tables has been changed 
from that of former years and we have profited by the system 
adopted by the " City Record," which has printed many of the 
election returns prepared at their request by this department. 

The inventory of the property of the department, prepared 
as required by the Revised Ordinances forms a part of this 
report, as directed by your printed instructions of Feb- 
ruary 3, 1900.

20 Wooden voting booths built in 1898 as permanent structures. 
34 Old wooden voting booths, known as " knock-down " buildings. 

The above booths when not in use are stored at different 
places in the city. Two additional old wooden booths, not re- 
moved from locations, are also used as polling places. To each 
booth belong railings and voting compartments, tables, chairs, 
stove and other necessary furnishings and voting paraphernalia. 
The department now owns 1,654 ch*»>«|, 744 tables, 554 voting 
compartments and 1,106 wooden hoists for the same, 200 stools

Seventeen of these have not been returned, and are charged to 
the following departments : Health Department, 1 ; Street De- 
partment, 1 ; Bath Department, 13 ; City Hospital, 2. Of the 
booths loaned to the State in 1898, two were not returned; a 
fair value for the same has been paid to the city.

25 United States ballot-boxes, comparatively new, used for caucuses. 
25 Standard ballot-boxes, formerly used at caucuses, and now used as 

"extras" at caucuses and elections. 
29 Acme ballot-boxes, 6 of which are regularly used at elections and 

the balance as " extras" at caucuses and elections. 

All of the above are kept in the basement room in the Old 
Court House. At the store-house in South Boston are 277 old 
ballot-boxes, not answering the present requirements of law, but 
placed at each polling-place at elections for temporary use in case 
of emergency ; also 108 old revolving ballot-boxes, not now of 
any available use.

1 card index cabinet, 1 roll-front document case, 1 wardrobe, 
1 coat-rack, 4 long tables, 2 counters, 1 typewriting table, 
1 large iron safe, 3 small tables, 4 clocks, metal frame rack in 
one of large vaults for holding caucus and election cardboard 
boxes (about 500 in number), and books, stationery, and required 
minor furnishings and fixtures for office purposes.
