REBUILDING FEDERAL BRIDGE. 



The town of Concord built, in 1851, on the site of the old 
Federal bridge, the stone piers, abutments, and covered wooden 
bridge, which was carried away by the ice freshet of April 11, 
1872. A short distance below was located the bridge of the 
Boston, Concord & Montreal Railroad Co., which was carried 
away at the same time. Temporary bridges were built soon 
after, supported by piles, and were continued in use to April of 
the next year. 

Aug. 31, 1872, the city council authorized the Mayor, in be- 
half of the city, to enter into an agreement with said railroad 
company, by which the piers and abutments were to be built of 
sufficient length to place thereon two biidges, one for the rail- 
road track, and the other for the public highway, — each party 
paying one half of the expense of constructing, maintaining, 
and keeping them in repair. This agreement bears date Aug. 
1, 1872, and is recorded in city records, vol. 2, page 410. 

The spans of the old superstructure were^ — 

North span, .95 feet. 

Middle span, 157^ 

South span, ....... 170^ 

Total, 423 

In order to obtain better proportions it became necessary to 
build the south abutment 13 feet, and the north abutment 40 
feet farther north, leaving the length of the spans as stated be- 
low, increasing tlie north span from 95 to 135 feet, and dimin- 
ishing the south span from 170|^ feet to 157^ feet. 

September 28th, the Mayor was also authorized and instruct- 
ed to contract for the erection of a wrought iron bridge, to be 
placed on said piers and abutments, of tlic following dimensions : 

North span, 135 feet. 

Middle span, 157^ 

South span, 157^ 

Length, -150 

Width of roadway, 18 

4 



50 

October 21, such a contract was entered into between the city 
and the Wrought Iron Bridge Company, of Canton, Ohio, to 
erect, according to plans and specifications furnished by it, a 
wrought iron column and channel arch bridge on the founda- 
tions referred to, for the sum of 118,462.50. It was opened for 
public travel, April 1, 1873, and, after a trial of nearly one year, 
has proved to be a substantial piece of work, answering all the 
purposes for which it was designed.

The number of applications for aid during tlie year was 162 ; 
number of persons aided, 179, exclusive of the large number of 
transient persons almost daily applying for assistance. Of the 
number aided by the city the past year, six have died, — males, 
1 ; females, 5. Of the latter, one was aged 85, and one 91 years. 
Two were small children, and two died of consumption. 

Judiciously to care for the poor, and, at the same time, aid 
them to care for themselves, has been the aim and object sought 
in this department of city service the past year. To "feed the^ 
hungry and clothe the naked" is only a part of the duty of 
those to whom this trust is committed. Economy is a virtue, 
but, in expenditures for suffering humanity, cannot always be 
strictly enforced. How, when, and to what extent aid should 
be extended, is a question not always easily to be determined. 
The importance, however, of suitable, efficient, and discriminating 
agencies for the judicious disbursement of public or private 
charities, is readily conceded. The duties of overseers of the 
poor, appointed by towns or cities, are quite different from, and 
do not rest upon the same basis as those of tlie officers of a 
charitable society. While the former in their official acts are 
and must be governed by the laws of the state, the latter are 
left free to follow the impulses of their benevolent and sympa- 
thizing hearts, and dispense their charities, and bestow their 
gifts upon the few, or many, as they deem worthy. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

C. F. STEWART, Overseer of the Poor.

REPORT OF CITY PHYSICIAN. 



To the City Council : 

I have the honor to submit, for your consideration, the follow- 
ing report in regard to those in our city, as have come under 
my observation, who have a claim on our sympathy and a pub- 
lic support: 

At the city farm there has been but very little acute sick- 
' ness, and but one accident — that being a man who was carried 
there after receiving a fracture of the arm. Not a single death 
has occurred during the past year; and, considering the class of 
people supported in almshouses, broken in mind and vitali- 
ty, easily affected by morbid and unhealthy influences surround- 
ing them, sensitive to changes of climate, it shows conclusively 
that good judgment and great care have been exercised by the 
superintendent and his wife ; for many of those in their charge 
have some form of chronic disease, which has for a long time 
unfitted them from supporting themselves. But a well-ordered 
home, nourishing diet, good care and nursing, render their 
lives comparatively comfortable, and able to perform many light 
duties. 

I have been called, by the overseer of the poor, to attend cases 
in twenty different families, supported partially by the city or 
county, and have found this class of patients generally very 
grateful for the assistance i*endered, and not disposed to ask for 
help any longer than is absolutely necessary. 

Our city has been remarkably free from epidemic or conta- 
gious diseases for the past year, which has been favorable to 
this class of our population ; for the first effects of malarial and 
epidemic influences are jirimarily found among this unfortunate 
class in all towns and cities. 

Our benevolent societies are and have been doing very much 
to relieve such as would otherwise suffer a long time before they 
would make their wants known ; and, as good works should 



73 

always receive encouragement, I Lope we shall, as citizens, nobly 
support tbese humane and benevolent associations. 

I would add one word in behalf of the board of health : 

They are often called to {)laces which are obviously unhealthy, 
and a nuisance to all residing in the neighborhood ; but, until 
our system of sewerage is completed, it is impossible to make 
permanent improvements. 

I believe, however, it is time when the public should demand 
that back yai-ds should not be used for pig-stys and outbuild- 
ings ; that all stables have water-tight, cemented cellars ; and 
that, as our sewers are extended, owners of tenement houses 
and others should be cofninlled to use them for sink drains and 
water-closets, as an open sink drain is the most fruitful source 
of typhoid fever which is known among medical men. 

It is a source of regret that our school buildings have been 
erected with so little regard to ventilation and drainage ; and I 
hope, as our sewers are extended into the vicinity of each of 
these public institutions, that improvement, so long needed, will 
be made at once. 

G. P. CONN, City Physician.

Report of tlie Police Justice. 



To the Mayor and the Board of Aldermen of the City of Con- 
cord: 

The Police Justice herewith submits th'e twenty-first annual 
report : 

Tliirty-one civil actions have been entered in the police court 
during the financial year, terminating with this date. 

Two hundred and thirteen persons, charged with the commis- 
sion of various criminal offences, have been arraigned before 
the police justice during said year. 

An account of those prosecutions, in which the city marshal 
and the assistant city marshal have participated, may be found 
in their respective reports of this date. 

The police justice charges himself as follows: 

Amount of costs received in such criminal 

prosecutions, $1,286.33 

Amount of fines received, 996.13 

Amount of costs in civil actions, 24.17 

$2,306.63

Paid for blanks and other expenses, 17.62 

Paid city treasurer, 1,231.14 



12,306.63 



Of the number charged with the commission of criminal of- 
fences, an unusual proportion have been before the police court 
for examination merely, — the final disposal of whose cases de- 
volving upon the supreme judicial court.

To the Mayor and the Board of Aldermen of the City of Con- 
cord: 

The Special Justice of the police court herewith submits his 
report for the two years last past : 

There have been entered before him to January 31, 1874, four 
arraignments for criminal offences, three of which were trans- 
ferred to the supreme judicial court, and one was discharged. 

During the last year there were seven arraignments before 
him for such offences, in one of which the respondent was dis- 
charged ; in two others the parties recognized to answer before 
the supreme judicial court; one was committed to jail, and the 
three others were sentenced to pay fines and costs. 

The city marshal's report will sufficiently explain the nature 
of the several offences. 

The special justice charges himself with 
amount of costs in said criminal pros- 
ecutions, $51.43 

Fines, 22.00

EEPORT OP THE CITY SOLICITOR 



To the City Council : 

The suits of John B. Palmer v. Concord, and Chase Phil- 
brick and Jeremiah Donovan v. Concord, mentioned in my last 
report as then pending, have been tried, each resulting in a 
verdict in favor of the city. The former case has been carried 
to the law term of the supreme court upon exceptions taken by 
the plaintiff, and is now before the court. Judgment has been 
ordered upon the verdict in the latter case. 

The only suit now pending against the city is one brought by 
Jonathan Kimball for alleged damages caused by falling upon a 
sidewalk in front of the residence of E, H. Rollins.

REPORT 



TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



To the City Council: 

The report of the librarian of the Concord Public Library to 
the trustees, forwarclecl with this report of the trustees, shows 
that the condition of the library is as favorable as it has been 
for past years. 

The increase of books by donation is very encouraging, and 
it is to be hoped that the good example of the donors may be 
followed by many others. 

By the report of the treasurer it will be seen that there is 
now in the treasuiy the sum of $301.64. It was thought to be 
a matter of necessity by the trustees that there should be pub- 
lished a full and complete catalogue of the books of the library. 
This is now being carried out, and this money in the treasury 
has been held in reserve for this purpose. This, of course, pre- 
vents the purchase for the present of such books as are very 
much needed. It is to be hoped, however, that our city fathers 
will make up this need by a liberal gift from the city treasury. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

In behalf of the trustees of the Concord Public Library.

REPORT OF LIBRARIAN OF CONCOED PUBLIC 
LIBRARY TO THE TRUSTEES. 

Your librarian would respectfully submit the following report 
of the condition of the library at the close of the year : 

Number of volumes in library at last report, 5,983 

Books added by purchase, 134 

Books added by donations, 131 



Number of volumes now in library, 6,2-18 

The donations were as follows: From a friend, through Rev. 
N. Bouton, D.D., eighteen volumes ; United States Bureau of 
Education, four volumes ; Hon. B. Wadleigh, five volumes Pub- 
lic Documents; Hon. S. N. Bell, six volumes; and from the 
Concord Agricultural Library Association, ninety-seven volumes 
of agricultural books, — a very valuable donation, as the books 
are the best published on the subject of agriculture. 

The majority of all the books missing at the annual examina- 
tion have been returned to the library at the date of this report. 
The number missing was one hundred and fifty-four. The num- 
ber of persons using the library during the year, eight hundred 
and fifty-three, being a small increase over last year.

Less paid the city for one half receipts for 

sale of lots, 1873, 531.20 



15,160.80 



It will be seen by the above statement that the committee 
have expended $371.14 more than the receipts of the past year. 
The introduction of Long Pond water was attended by con- 
siderable expense, but it is believed that the great advantage 
gained by it fully justifies the cost. The fountain in the grass 
plot on the summit is of neat but inexpensive design, and the 
two drinking fountains are for use rather than for beauty. The 
laying of the main pipe, and all the plumbing, have been 
done in the most thorough and substantial manner, and more 
beautiful fountains can be placed in the location of the present 
ones, whenever the city can afford it. 

It is a matter of congratulation that the city has purchased 
the additional land (about twenty-three acres) for an extension 
to the present limits of the cemeteiy. It is now desirable that 
this addition should be carefully surveyed and plotted, so that 
the necessary improvements may be commenced as soon as 
possible. The committee understand that this land was pur- 
chased on the same general terms as the original tract, viz., 
that the first $1,500 received for the sale of lots should be ap- 
plied to laying out and embellishing the grounds, and that 
thereafter, one half the money received for the sale of lots 
should be paid to the city until the purchase-money was paid. 

It seems very desirable to the committee that a sufficient 
sum of money should be appropriated for the purpose of putting 
the new part into as good order as possible, at as early a date 
as practicable, and that the lots in the best locations should be 
sold at such increase from former prices as will make the income 
materially larger. There will be plenty of cheap lots, and 



84 

there should be an opportunity for those who are willing and 
able to pay more for choice locations to do so. 

The committee are aware that many things need to be done 
in both the old and new cemeteries, but the funds at their 
disposal are so limited that it is not easy to keep the cemeteries 
up to their present standard, — imuch less to make the various 
improvements needed to make these burial-places what they 
should be. They hope that the citizens will be disposed to 
make such appropriations as will enable them to make these 
cemeteries every way a credit to our city.

CHIEF ENGINEEE'S EEPOET. 



To the City Council : 

In compliance with section 3d of an ordinance relating to 
the Fire Department, I have the honor to submit this, my 
first Annual Report, for the year ending January 31st, 1874 : 

FORCE OF DEPARTMENT. 

The entire force of this department consists of one chief 
engineer, eight assistant engineers, and one hundred and 
ninety men, divided as follows : 

Within the precinct : One chief engineer, five assistant 
engineers, twenty-four members of steam fire engine com- 
panies, thirty-six members of hose companies, twenty mem- 
bers of hook and ladder company. Total, eighty-six men. 

Without the precinct : Three hand engine companies, 
viz., "Pioneer," No. 1, Fisherville, fifty members; "Old 
Fort," No. 2, East Concord, thirty members ; " Cataract," 
No. 3, West Concord, thirty members. One assistant en- 
gineer is resident in each of these localities. Total, one 
hundred and thirteen men. 

During the year, several important changes have been 
made in tlie department. Hook & Ladder Company, No. 1, 
has been reorganized, and increased to twenty members. 



Concord Railroad Hydrant and Hose Co., No. 1, twenty- four 
men ; also, Northern Railroad Hydrant & Hose, No. 2, 
twelve men, have been disbanded ; and two new hose compa- 
nies have been formed, of twelve men each, — one at the North 
and another at the South end. These companies are consti- 
tuted of carefully selected men, and are believed to be 
prompt and efficient ; and in this connection it may be said 
that the entire department is composed of good and reliable 
men, united, effective, and deserving of all praise in the dis- 
charge of their duties. 

APPARATUS. 

The department now has in use two steamers, — one first 
class and one second class ; one horse hose carriage and 
two hand hose carriages, all built by the Amoskeag Manu- 
facturing Co. The last two are new, and were put in ser- 
vice during the year. They are constructed in the best man- 
ner, and are considered good and reliable. The hook and 
ladder truck, built by the Abbot, Downing Co., is also a first 
class piece of apparatus. Eagle hose carriage has been 
repainted and repaired throughout, w4th all the modern 
improvements added, and is now in excellent order and 
condition. 

Our entire apparatus I consider complete, and believe it 
will compare favorably with any in New England. 

HOSE. 

Prior to the first of October, 1873, the department had in 
use three thousand feet of two and one half inch steamer 
and hydrant hose, in a fair condition for service. At the 
recommendation of the board of engineers, the city council 
purchased fifteen hundred feet leather hose of Samuel East- 
man & Co., of this city, making a total of forty-five hundred 
feet, for precinct department. 

At Fisherville, there is six hundred feet of new and three 



89 

liiindred feet of old two-inch hose ; East Concord has three 
hundred and seventy-one feet of new and three hundred feet 
of old ; and at West Concord there is about five hundred and 
fifty feet, making the total amount of hand engine hose two 
thousand one hundred and twenty-one feet. 

HOUSES. 

Under this head I would earnestly call attention to the 
immediate wants of that portion of the fire department 
located on Warren street, and would recommend that suit- 
able buildings be erected as soon as possible, in some central 
part of the city, for the use of the two steamers. Eagle Hose, 
and Hook and Ladder companies, those now in occupancy 
being totally unfit in every respect. 

Steamer house on Warren street presents a forlorn appear- 
ance, shovs^ing the march of time and decay. The stvucture 
now occupied by the hook and ladder company was origi- 
nally built as a temporary shelter, hastily and rudely con- 
structed. It is insecure, and inadequate for the require- 
ments of tliis branch of the department. 

When we consider tlie amount of property these buildings 
cover, it seems that the request for the removal of these 
causes for general dissatisfaction is just, and one that should 
be promptly granted. 

During the past year a very neat brick house has been 
erected on Washington, near State street, for the use of 
Alert Hose Company, No. 2, which is creditable to the 
city, and of great advantage to the department. 

A new brick building at the South end, corner of Cross 
and State streets, is nearly completed, and will provide the 
same accommodation to Good Will Hose Company, No. 3, 
as that at the North end gives to the " Alert." 

The houses without the precinct, at Fisherville and West 
Concord, are in good order. The house at East Concord is 
somewhat dilapidated, and needs thorough repairs to render 
it serviceable. 



90 
LONG POND WATER. 

The introduction of Long Pond water, and the placing 
hydrants throughout the streets (the location of which is 
given elsewhere), has proved of inestimable advantage for 
fire purposes, as has been fully attested at the different fires 
that have occurred during the year. 

Especially do we mention two, — that at J. H. Rowell's 
stable, and the Abbot, Downing Company's shops, — both of 
which might have spread into serious conflagrations but for 
this means of extinguishment. It is a matter of general 
congratulation that there now exists no cause for future 
anxiety in this respect. 

FIRES AND ALARMS. 

During tlie year the department has been called out to 
fires and alarms fifteen times, as follows : 

March 7th, 1873. An alarm of fire at Fisherville, in the 
boiler house connected with the cotton mill of J. S. Brown, 
caused by sparks from the furnace door. Loss trifling. 

March IGth. Alarm of fire, caused by burning of chim- 
ney at the Elm house. No aid needed from the department. 

May 15th. J. H. Rov/ell's stable, rear of Phenix hotel, 
was entirely consumed, and the warehouse owned by Hutch- 
ins & Co. was also destroyed; iron store of Walker & Co., 
slightly damaged, as was also the flour store of Whitcher & 
Stratton, and building of J. L. Mason. Cause, probably 
accidental. Losses as follows : J. H. Rowell, on building, 
$3,000— insured fully ; on stock, |600— insured. Hutch- 
ins & Co., loss on building, |8,000 — insured ; on stock, 
$2,350.20 — insured. Whitcher & Stratton, loss on building, 
$175 — insured ; on stock, $50 — insured. William Vogler, 
loss on stock, $180 — fully insured. Walker & Co., loss on 
building, $125 ; on stock, $50 — insured. J. L. Mason, loss 
on building, $150 — insurance, $75. J. R. Crocker, loss on 
furniture and live stock, $525 — insured. At the same time 



91 

a dwelling-house on Chandler street, owned by the Con- 
cord Railroad Co., took fire from the sparks, and was en- 
tirely destroyed. Loss, ^500 — insurance, $300. Total loss, 
$15,705.21— insurance, $15,630.21. 

May 16tli. J. Putney's store at East Concord was burned. 
Loss on building, $1,000— insured, $800 ; on stock, $300— 
no insurance. Total loss, $1,300 — insurance, $800. 

May 30th. Alarm of fire at Page Belting Co.'s shops, 
which was extinguished by their force pumps without aid 
from the department. Loss trifling. 

June 30th. Fire at the North end, in the carriage manu- 
factory of S. M. Griffin & Co., which, with the dwelling- 
house occupied by him, was destroyed. The fire communi- 
cated to the North church, which was entirely destroyed, 
and thence to the chapel on the west, which was partially 
burned. From Griffin's house the flames spread to barn and 
storehouse, which were destroyed. The barn of Lyman 
Merrill was also burned, and an unfinished house belonging 
to him was partially consumed. From Mr. Merrill's prem- 
ises the fire communicated to the house of Sylvester Dana, 
situated on Pearl street, which was also burned. The losses 
are as follows : S. M. Griffin, loss on house and ell, $2,500 — 
insurance, $1,700 ; on contents of shops, $4,000 — insurance, 
$800 ; on furniture and household goods, $750 — insurance, 
$200. The loss of the North church is estimated at $15,000 
— insurance, about $1,600 ; $2,000 additional insurance was 
also held by the pew-holders. Lyman Merrill's loss $700 — 
insurance, $487.50. Unfinished house, built by G. H. 
Seavey, was a total loss of $1,000. Sylvester Dana's loss 
estimated at $3,000— insured, $2,500. Total loss, $26,950 
— insurance, $12,287.50. The cause of this fire was probably 
incendiary. 

July 15th. Abbot, Downing Company's carriage manufac- 
tory, which was extinguished without aid of the department. 
Cause incendiary. Loss trifling. 

August 8th. Fire was discovered in the wooden store- 



92 

house of the Abbot, Downing Company's works, which soon 
communicated to the three story northerly building. The 
second and third floors of tliis building were used as paint 
shops. Owing to the dry condition of the building, and the 
combustible nature of its contents, the fire made rapid pro- 
gress. After an hour's hard work, the fire was finally 
brought under control. Entire loss on building and stock 
was $19,672.84— insurance, |19,014.80. 

August 30th. Ell of house, owned and occupied by D. 
W. Fox, on Merrimack street, at Fisherville, which was 
extinguished by a few pails of water, without aid from de- 
partment. The fire caught from ashes kept in a barrel. 
Loss, -f 25 — insurance, |25.

REGULATIONS 



CONCORD PRECINCT FIRE DEPARTMENT, 



ADOPTED BY THE BOARD OF ENGINEERS, JANUARY, 1874. 



Article 1. Any engine or hose company, rnnning out a 
line of hose from a hydrant or steamer, shall be entitled to 
the pipe, although the hose of other companies may be at- 
tached in order to reach the fire ; and any company, coming 
to a fire, and finding an incomplete line of hose laid out 
from a hydrant or steamer, shall attach to and lengthen out 
such line, in lieu of laying a line of its own. 

Art. 2. When two or more engine or hose companies are 
playing in a continuous line, the pipe shall belong to the 
company attaching to the hydrant or steamer, as provided 
in the foregoing article ; but any company furnishing the 
entire line, and receiving water from a steamer, the pipe 
shall belong to such company so receiving. 

Art. 3. Each engine and hose company shall liave equal 
claim to the hydrants ; but it is enjoined upon the engine 
companies to draught their own water from a reservoir, 
wherever a suitable one can be found within reasonable dis- 
tance. 

Art. 4. No company shall take possession of a hydrant 
or reservoir, unless their hose and apparatus for attaching to 



112 

tlie same are at hand and ready for use. The company 
which shall be thus ready shall be entitled to such liydrant 
or reservoir ; but, upon the order of an engineer, another 
company may attach a second line of hose from such hy- 
drant or steamer, in case the same may be necessary, — such 
company having first laid its hose, and being ready to attach 
the same. 

Art. 5. In proceeding to, working at, or returning from 
fires, noisy demonstrations are strictly prohibited, and it is 
required of officers of companies to maintain perfect order 
and decorum in their respective commands during all such 
service. 

Art. 6. No company, while returning from a lire, will be 
allowed to proceed faster than a walk, and at all times to 
keep on the right of the street. Drivers are strictly en- 
joined, in proceeding to a fire, to use the utmost care and 
caution consistent with promptness. Racing between com- 
panies is forbidden under any circumstances. Any collision 
or casualty occurring to horses or apparatus will be con- 
sidered a sufficient cause for the suspension of the driver in 
charge at the time. 

Art. 7. The bells will at first ring a general fire alarm ; 
and, when the locality of the fire is known, the number of 
the Ward will be struck, and repeated for the space of at 
least ten minutes. 

Art. 8. No member of any company shall leave the city 
without first informing his foreman ; no foreman or assistant 
engineer, without first notifying the chief engineer, — in each 
case the party so leaving providing a substitute. 

Art. 9. In case of fire, the foreman first arriving shall be 
in command until the arrival of an engineer. 

Art. 10. Any order issued by the chief, or an assistant 
engineer, shall be promptly obeyed.
