REPORT 

OF THE 

OOMilNJIITTEE ON FINANCE. 



The Joint Standing Committee on Finance, in conformity with 
the requirements of the Ordinance prescribing their duties, " es- 
tablishing a system of accountability in the expenditures of the 
city," submit to the City Council their Annual Report of the E,e-= 
ceipts and Expenditures of the financial year, ending February 1, 
1863. 

We have examined the Treasurer's books, and those of the City 
Clerk, and find that all payments therein recorded are duly authen- 
ticated with appropriate vouchers, and that the several items, foot- 
ings and balances are correctly cast, and stated, and that the books 
of those ofiicers have been faithfully kept, and with a system that 
cannot fail to give satisfaction to the tax-payers of the city.

Your Committee are of the opinion that the farm is judiciously 
managed by the present Overseer. The family is composed al- 
most -wholly of aged people and children, who appear quiet and 
comfortable. The loss of land by the freshet in the spring of 
1862 was quite large — estimated at three-fourths of an acre. Your 



40 



Committee believe that the interests of the city require that some- 
thing should be done to prevent the loss of land in this way. 

Respectfully submitted, 



WILLIAM D. COLBY, 
MOSES H. FARNUM, 
CHARLES W. HAZELTINE, 



Committee.

CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 



To His Honor the Mayor and Board of Aldermen of the City of 
Concord : 



The Chief Engineer would respectfully submit the following re- 
port, in accordance with the Ordinance of the City in relation to 
the Fire Department, for the fiscal year ending Feb. 1, 1863: 

The number of fires and alarms have been as follows : 

February 24. — Fire at School House in Ward Four, caught from 
ashes in a barrel in closet ; damage trifiing. 

Same evening — Fire at shop of Thompson & Dennett corner of 
Warren and Main St., caught from defect in chimney — put out 
without a general alarm. 

February 25. — Fire in rear of Joseph Brown's shop. Main Street, 
extinguished without alarm. 

Same night — Fire at the Elm House, in water closet, set by paper 
wet in spirits and small splinters of pitch-wood — burnt a little and 
went out — discovered next morning. 

During the same week a fire was kindled under the floor of the 
third story of Stickney's new Block, — burnt considerable and then 
went out. 

These three last fires were undoubtedly the work of the same 
parties, and although a reward was ofi"ered and certain persons 
were suspected, no evidence sufficient to commit has yet been ob- 
tained. 

March 23. — Fire at corner of Main and Warren Streets, small 
one story building, occupied by Thompson & Dennett, and owned 
by F. Low. Loss to building and goods, $800. Insured. 

April 6. — Fire at house of E. Wentworth, corner of Washing- 
ton and Pleasant Street. Total loss, $1,500. Insured ^1.000. 

April 28.— Fire at South end of City Hall lot, " Smoky Hol- 
low," house owned by H. M. Moore, and occupied by five Irish fami- 
lies. Damage to building $200. No insurance. 



47 

May 11. — Slight fire at E. G-. Kilbiirn's store, corner of Main 
Street and Free Bridge Road, — appeared to have caught in a large 
box of friction matches. Damage trifling. Insured. 

May 30. — Slight fire at house of Mrs. S. A. Kimball, north end 
Main Street, caught in attic from defect in chimney. Damage $15. 

August 6. — Fire at Athenian Building, in printing ofiice of L. 
L. Mower ; lower floor occupied by Sinclair & Holt, as a Billiard 
Hall. Damages to Mower ^50, and Sinclair & Holt $125 by fire 
and water. Insured. 

August 7. — Fire at dwelling house of Daniel Farnum, on Little 
Pond Road. Buildings totally destroyed, together' with one horse, 
all his hay and grain — most of the furniture of the house saved, — 
fire caught in the barn. Loss 84.000. Insured $2,750. 

August 10. — Alarm from the burning of chimney and smoke at 
the old Ezra Ballard house, Little Pond Road. 

Aug. 1862. — House, barn and out-buildings of Mr. Robinson, 
on the Dark Plains, Ward 2. Totally destroyed. Loss $1200. 
Insured $800. 

September. — 2 Barns with 30 tons of hay, mowing machine and 
other farming implements burnt, owned by John L. Tallant Esq., 
Ward 2. Loss $700. No insurance. 

September 13. — Fire at MiUville — grist-mill and planing-miU of 
Geo. Frye. Damage $2,500. Insured $1,500. 

October 18. — Fire at Stickney's Block, caught by heating through 
the chimney and setting the wood work on fire in the store of Mr. 
Kilburn. Discovered by the city watchman and put out without a 
general alarm. Damage $25. 

December 6. — Fire at store of E. Gr. Kilburn, Stickney's Block; 
caught the same as the one above. Damage to goods and build- 
ing $125. Insured, 

January 1, 1863. — False alarm occasioned by want of care in 
ringing the bells. 

January 3. — Fire at dwelling house formerly owned by J. L. 
Day, on Loudon Road, in Ward 2, Total loss of house, barn and 
out-buildings, together with two oxen and two cows, owned by Mr. 
Holt, who occupied the premises. Loss $1,500. 

December 21. — Fire at camp ground, sutler's tent, guard house, 
and stable burnt. Loss $300. 

December 22. — Fire at a building occupied as a barn and wood- 
shed, rear of Main Street Ward 6, owned by Oliver Turner, and 
occupied by tenants, together with cow and hay. Loss $150. In- 
sured $75, on building. 



48 

It will be seen by the above that tlie losses the past year have 
been mostly in the agricultural portions of the city, three entire 
set of farm buildings having been destroyed, two barns filled with 
hay &c., and a saw, planing and grist mill, the loss in all reaching 
at least $10,000, a larger amount, probably then has occurred dur- 
ing the last twenty years, while in the main part of the city it has 
been very small, not amounting in the whole to more than $2,000. 

During the year Engine Co. No 4, has been disbanded and most 
of the members were transferred to the Steamer Co., " Gov. Hill" 
and the Eagle Hose Co., which have been formed during the 
year. 

The new steam fire engine which was ordered to be purchased 
last year, has been located where Engine Co. No 4 originally was, 
which has been altered so as to accommodate the Steamer, Eagle 
Hose Co., and the Hook and Ladder Co. No 1, and near by, almost 
adjoining, has been erected a new stable for the use of the horses 
owned by the Centre Highway District. 

There has also been purchased 1000 feet of double rivetedleath- 
er hose, and 100 feet of rubber hose which are in charge of the 
Steamer and Eagle Hose No 1, together with what hose was orig- 
inally purchased for Engine Co. No 4. 

The experience of the last year has made it apparent to every 
person at all conversant with the situation of the compact part of 
the city that the money expended for the above named objects 
was well invested, and the question is often asked, why not change 
the other two engines and get another steamer ? 

The time may and probably will come when such a change should 
take place, but it is the opinion of the Board of Engineers that the 
situation of the fire apparatus as now located, viz : the Steamer, 
Hose and Hook & Ladder Cos., in the centre, and Engines No 2, 
and 3 at the extremes of the main village, are amply sufficent for 
our present necessities, and should so remain for the present. 

The Board of Engineers are also of the opinion that those en- 
gines out of the mfain village, viz : No. 7, at East Concord, No. 6, 
at West Concord, and No. 8, at Fisherville, should not answer to 
an alarm in the centre unless specially notified. 

During the past season, in accordance with a vote of the City 
Grovernment, a Reservoir 70 feet long, 30 feet wide and 6 feet deep 
was constructed by a committee appointed for that purpose, in the 



49 

school house lot, with pipes connecting the same with the reservoir 
in front of the State House, and also down Main street connecting 
with a small reservoir in front of J. R. Hill's New Block and also 
with one at the corner of Main and Pleasant street. The experi- 
ment of filling the reservoir in front of the State house, during the 
time of the fire on the 3d inst., at Mr, John Albin's house was tried, 
with entire satisfaction, although it was one of the coldest nights 
of the season. Some slight alteration however, should be made 
in the Spring, when the ground opens, to prevent so much water 
from running to waste. 

There is some complaint, and we believe justly too by the hose 
men connected with the various engines in the compact part of 
the city, that no suits of fire clothes are furnished them, that the 
entire pay which they receive from the city will not recompense 
them for the clothes destroyed, to say nothing of the exposure to 
their persons in going into and upon burning buildings, which every 
hose man is required to do as often as there is a fire. The Board 
of Engineers are of the opinion that they should have an additional 
compensation, or that they should be furnished with suits at the 
expense of the city, or that the Companies should be allowed a 
stated sum per annum for the purpose of providing them, and 
have them the property of the Companies. In the latter case they 
would be likely to be better taken care of. 

The utmost harmony prevails at the present time throughout the 
whole Fire Department, notwithstanding the changes which have 
been made during the past year. 

I would respectfully tender my sincere thanks to the Assistant 
Engineers for the promptness which they have always manifested 
in the discharge of their respective duties, and to all the Compa- 
nies and individual members of the Concord Fire Department for 
the cheerfulness and alacrity with which they have performed every 
requirement of the Board of Engineers. 

Respectfully submitted.

From the foregoing statement it will appear 
that the whole receipts of the Com- 
mittee during the above mentioned 
period, Feb. 19, 1862, to December 
23d, 1862, have been $1.029 18 

Expenditures during the same period, 936 50 

Balance in hands of the Committee, $92 68 

The whole amount received for lots sold in 
the old Cemetery, from March, 1855, 
to December 13, 1862, is 1.082 00 

The whole amount expended during that pe- 
riod for water, gravel, moving hearse 
house, making paths,repairing fences, 
&c., is 507 47 

Balance unexpended in the hands of the City 

Treasurer, $574 53 

Five hundred dollars of this balance has been permanently in- 
vested in a 5-20 U. S. six per cent Bond. 

There are still many lots in this Cemetery occupied, which have 
never been paid for, from the sales of which it is hoped such a fur- 
ther sum may be realized and added to the above amount, as to 
form an aggregate that shall yield an annual income sufficient to 
maintain its grounds and fences in good order and repair. 

The whole amount received from the sale of lots in Blossom 
Hill Cemetery from its opening to December 23, 1862, has been 
(S 1.790 89) seventeen hundred and ninety dollars and eighty-nine 
cents. 

Of this amount there remains unexpended in the City Treas- 
ury, $1,000 89 

In hands of Cemetery Committee, 92 68 

$1,093 57 



51 

The ordinance in relation to Cemeteries passed February 4, 1860, 
provides that " all money arising from the sale of lots shall be 
kept in a distinct fund, and the first proceeds to the amount of 
$1500 shall be exclusively appropriated to adding to, improving 
and ornamenting the Cemetery grounds, and all proceeds after 
said amount shall be appropriated, one half to so improving and 
ornamenting the Cemetery grounds, and one half to the payment 
of the principal and interest of the original purchase money of 
said Cemetery lot, till said principal and interest be paid." 

It will be seen that the receipts have exceeded the limit fixed by 
the ordinance, the sum of $290 89. One half of this, therefore, 
(145 44) may be applied by the City Treasurer towards the pay- 
jnent of the debt incurred by the City in the purchase of the Cem- 
etery grounds, leaving $948 13 on hand, and one half of all sums 
hereafter received for their further improvement. 

Important improvements in this Cemetery the next season are 
contemplated by the Committee. A contract has been made for 
the erection of a permanent and tasty front wall of granite to ex- 
tend along the west line of Rumford Street from the gate to the 
south line of the Cemetery grounds. A portion of the front wall 
north of the gate needs rebuilding, and the wall upon the north 
line of the Cemetery should be extended east to the West Parish 
road. The Committee have also in contemplation the thorough 
gravelling of the avenues and walks, together with the erection of 
a dam across Wood's Brook, near the locality known as Indian 
Dell, for the purpose of raising a pond and supplying water, by 
means of a hydraulic ram, for the use of proprietors of lots upon 
the most elevated portions of the Cemetery. 

Your Committee in closing would repeat the substance of a re- 
mark made in a former report, that they feel fully comfident that, 
with proper care, this Cemetery can not only refund to the City 
the money advanced for its purchase and continue self-supporting, 
but become, in a few years, an important ornament of our City.
