Leaving a net balance over the expense, for

A new hydrant has been placed at the corner of Union 
and Maple streets. The expense is included in the above. 

The Board, in their report for 1881, considered some of the 
defects in the Water-Works, as then constructed, particularly 
the difficulty of furnishing a continuous supply of water to 
the higher points of the precinct. They also called your at- 
tention to the importance of laying an additional main pipe 
from Franklin street to the pond, concluding that portion of 
their report as follows : 

" The Board, after a thorough investigation and careful considera- 
tion of the subject, have unanimously voted to lay a second and larger 
main from the dam to a point opposite the entrance to Blossom Hill 
Cemetery, and to lay a large pipe from that point through Walnut 
street to its intersection with Franklin street * * * The Board 
are of the opinion that this main can be laid, with all necessary connec- 
tions, gates, and appurtenances, for a sum not exceeding fifty thousand 
dollars. * * * They respectfully ask you to take such measures as 
will place at their disposal sufficient funds to do this work." 

The city council voted to furnish the amount of funds re- 
quired to proceed with the work immediately. 



54 

February 15, 1882, proposals were issued by the Board 
asking for bids as follows : 

1st. To lay a cement-lined pipe, 18 inches in diameter, 
from a point near the entrance to Blossom Hill Cemetery to 
the meter-house near the dam, a distance of 11,460 feet. 

2d. To lay a cement-lined pipe 12 inches in diameter from 
Franklin street north through Walnut street, connecting 
with the 18-inch pipe near the entrance to Blossom Hill 
Cemetery, a distance of 3,290 feet. 

3d. To lay a cement-lined pipe 4 inches in diameter from 
Bradley street west through Perkins street, connecting with 
the 12-inch pipe in Walnut street, a distance of 650 feet, 
with a hydrant at the junction. 

February 25, 1882, the contract was awarded to Messrs. 
Goodhue & Birnie, of Springfield, Mass., they being the 
lowest bidders, for the sum of forty-four thousand and nine 
hundred dollars. 

During the summer several citizens residing on South 
street petitioned the city council to enlarge the water pre- 
cinct so much as to include their estates. The prayer of the 
petitioners was granted. 

July 1, 1882, the Board voted to extend the 6-inch pipe 
farther south in South street a distance of 2,240 feet, with 
two fire hydrants attached. 

At the same meeting the Board voted to extend the 6-inch 
pipe farther south in Turnpike street a distance of 713 feet, 
with one fire hydrant attached. 

Special contracts were made with Messrs. Goodhue & 
Birnie for laying these extensions, and furnishing gates, pipe, 
and other materials for the completion of the additions and 
improvements necessary to be made. 

December 1, 1882, the Board made an agreement with the 
Concord Manufacturing Company, a corporation owning 
water-power and mills at West Concord near our dam, leas- 
ing to said company the property owned by the city known 
as the " kit-factory," and certain rights in the water-power 



55 

and lands, also owned by the city, situate on the Cooledge 
lot, so called, for the term of ten years from January 1, 1883, 
said company agreeing to allow the city to draw and use all 
the water required for its Water-Works without measurement 
during said term, the city agreeing to pay said company the 
sum of three thousand dollars. 

The work, as indicated above, has been completed dur- 
ing the year, and is now in successful operation. 

It will be observed that the new 18-inch main pipe termi- 
nates near the entrance to Blossom Hill Cemetery. Should 
the necessities of the city ever require a larger supply of 
water, it is the intention of the Board to continue this pipe 
southerly through State, Fisk, and Main streets. 

The Board take pleasure in being able to state that the 
contractors have performed their contract faithfully, and to 
the entire satisfaction of the Board; and though they were 
required to make some changes from the contract, and to do 
some extra work, they have made no claim for extra com- 
pensation therefor. They understand their business, and are 
willing to perform their contracts. 

The following financial statement shows the receipts and 
disbursements on account of said work :

Leaving a balance on hand of 



627.19* 



The year 1882 was one of unprecedented drought. Hon. 
W. L. Foster, in his " weather report," says, " The rain-fall 
was ]i G o 3 o inches less than the smallest annual rain-fall record- 
ed in twenty-seven years." 

The following table shows the height of the water at the 
dam on the first day of each month : 

January, 

February, . 

March, 

April, 

May, 

June, 

The lowest point reached was December 1, being 176.90, 

* The difference between tit is balance and the Treasurer's balance, as shown on 
page CO, arises from the tact that some of the Water-Works coupons have not been 
presented for payment.

Our city has now been supplied with water from Long 
Pond for a period of ten years. We can review these years 
with much satisfaction. No one at the present time doubts 
the wisdom of the undertaking. Its practicability and use- 
fulness have been demonstrated beyond question. The orig- 
inal works were thoroughly constructed, so that only a very 
small sum has been required for repairs. The cement-lined 
pipe has been found to be adapted to our wants. The water 



58 

supplied has been pure, and generally abundant, Takers 
have increased from year to year, and are still increasing; 
the rates have been reduced ; large improvements have been 
made in the works ; and with moderate rates the income is 
ample to pay interest charges on the bonded debt, and all 
charges for care and maintenance. The destruction of prop- 
erty in the city by fire has been largely diminished in conse- 
quence of the ample supply of water at hand to extinguish 
fires. Insurance rates have been correspondingly reduced. 
The great majority of our citizens have been abundantly sup- 
plied with water for family uses, and large quantities have 
been furnished for sprinkling lawns and other purposes. By 
the recent improvements, it is believed that every citizen who 
desires the water can be supplied, and that the annoyances 
that have heretofore occurred at the high points in the city, 
by reason of an intermittent supply, will be remedied. As 
our population increases, the demands upon the Water-Works 
will increase : but the stores in reserve are ample for our 
probable wants for generations to come. Of the many attrac- 
tions of our beautiful city, this certainly is not the least. Its 
blessings literally flow to us continually and abundantly, and 
at a reasonable rate. 

Respectfully submitted.

CITY PHYSICIAN'S REPORT. 



To the City Council : 
For the year ending December 31, 1882, I have made 

Visits at Almshouse, 25 
Visits to those, aided by city, not at Alms- 
house, 252 
Prescriptions at office, 11 
Cases of midwifery, 1 

lam safe in saying that there is a population of twelve 
thousand in that part of the city that would come to me in 
case medical assistance were furnished by the city. 

The actual number that have been prescribed for by me 
during the year was thirty-eight. Of this number four were 
surgical cases, — two fractures of forearm, one fracture of 
forearm with dislocation at elbow, and one case of attempt- 
ed suicide. In the latter two trials were made. The first 
was only a small flesh wound, but the second attempt result- 
ed in cutting the wind-pipe about half off. I treated the 
patient until the wound had nearly healed, however, when it 
was thought best to remove her to the county farm, and the 
case passed out of my hands. 

ALMSHOUSE. 

The whole number of inmates was twelve ; average num- 
ber during tbe year, seven and two thirds. My professional 
visits have hardly averaged one every two weeks. As has 



94 

always been my custom when in that part of the city, I have 
made other calls, and kept myself informed of the very gen- 
eral good condition of all there. The frequent small ail- 
ments that will arise among the class that are always in such 
institutions have been met by the matron, thus making my 
visits less frequent. The good management of all having in 
charge those at the almshouse has continued the past year. 
One man, aged 87, died from old age. I would call atten- 
tion again to the buildings that remain as rather ancient 
landmarks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE COOK, 

City Physician. 
Concord, N. H., January 3, 1883. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OE HEALTH. 



To the City Council : 

Twelve complaints have been made to us during the year, 
of the following nature : 

Drains opening on top of ground, 4 

Uncleansed privy vaults, 3 

Filthy pig-pens, 5 

The above does not include a large number of verbal com- 
plaints that have been made to individual members of the 
Board. 

It must be remembered that we have no system of inspec- 
tions : practically nothing is done by the Board except upon 
complaint. While we are sure that our city is very gener- 
ally clean, and free from nuisances, we question whether it is 
wise always to wait for complaint. With a very small sum 
of money, a complete inspection of the compact part of the 
city could be made. We are sure that the suggestions that 
might come from a competent inspector would be appreci- 
ated by most of our citizens, and his advice readily followed. 

WATER SUPPLY. 

Each year finds a steady increase in the number of con- 
sumers from the main supply. We venture the assertion, 
that the day is not a great while hence when every person 
within the water district will be dependent upon Long Pond 



96 

for their daily use. What a responsibility is upon us all ! 
How important that that great reservoir, which is to provide 
us all with the water we drink, and that is used in cooking 
all of our food, should be kept pure. We have as pure a 
supply as any city in New England. Much money has been 
spent by the city upon its Water- Works, and wisely spent, we 
believe. With the new pipe laid this year we have a very 
abundant supply. 

' Now, although motors may be run and fires can be put 
out with water loaded with organic matter, it is not the kind 
for man to eat and drink. We are sure that this most im- 
portant aid to the city's wealth and prosperity demands 
watchful and intelligent care. Tims far this has been had. 
It is only for the future that we are anxious, and speak a 
warning word. 

SEWERS. 

Witli an abundant water supply, sewers become a neces- 
sity. Year by year new pipe is laid until at the present time 
we have a very complete and well-ordered system. As re- 
gards their ventilation and proper supervision, we can only 
repeat what was said in our report last year. We consider 
these matters of great importance, and what was said then 
was said in good faith, and because we believed they were 
needed. We have seen no cause to change our minds in the 
year that has just passed. 

VITAL STATISTICS. 

Whole number of deaths among residents, 216 

Population, 14,000 

Death-rate per thousand, 15.44 

We have included as among residents the one death at 
the almshouse. Last year the whole number of deaths was 
240, making our death-rate 17 and a fraction per thousand. 
As has been our custom, the 18 still-births this year are not 



97 

included among the births or deaths, but are classed by 
themselves. We would call attention to Class I, Zymotic 
diseases : Cholera infantum, 7 ; diphtheria and diphtheretic 
croup, 4. It is a very remarkable showing. Typhoid fever 
has had only 8 victims, and the disease prevailed to a greater 
extent last autumn than for many years before. 

Order III — Tubercular Diseases. Nearly one sixth of the 
whole number of deaths has been from consumption. 

Of the circulatory system, 21 deaths have occurred from 
the different forms of diseases of the heart ; while of the res- 
piratory system only 14 deaths from pneumonia have taken 
place. Forty-two deaths have occurred among children un- 
der 5 years of age, and 56 in persons over 70. 

The whole number of living births has been 272, showing 
that our increase of population has kept quite largely ahead 
of the decrease. 

The city ordinance requiring physicians to make return of 
births and deaths to the registrar has now been in operation 
four years. We believe no other city in New England can 
show equally accurate tables of vital statistics.

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 

To the City Council : 

The Trustees of the Public Library present their report for 
the year ending December 31, 1882. Accompanying are the 
reports of the librarian and the treasurer. 

The public library is largely the teacher of the community. 
It aids during school-days ; but in the education after the 
school, it is a large factor. The books selected for it should 
therefore be the best upon all subjects of useful knowledge. 
It must have standard works, and in a good degree furnish 
the new books of interest. To meet this demand has been 
the design of the trustees. The one great obstacle in the 
way is want of funds. The appropriations are still far be- 
low the pressing needs of this city. The expenses for the 
coming year will be increased by the preparing and printing 
a new catalogue. 

The use of the library depends upon the readers. The 
books are for service, not for ornament, and the more they 
are used the better. 

The exposed position of the library should lead us to keep 
it well insured, and also, as does its growth, constantly re- 
mind us of the need of a safe and commodious library build- 
ing. 

The report of the librarian gives the particulars of the 
year past. The trustees would respectfully suggest to the 



104 

city council the consideration of the recommendations made 
by the librarian.

REPORT OP LIBRARIAN. 

To the Trustees of the Public Library : 

The librarian herewith presents his report of the additions 
made to the library during the eleven months ending with 
the 30th day of December, 1882 : 

Number of volumes purchased, . . 254 

Number of volumes of periodicals bound, . 33 

Number of volumes donated to the library, 90 

Number of pamphlets donated to the library, 90 

Making an addition of . . . . 467 
volumes and pamphlets. 

Seventeen volumes have also been bought to take the place 
of worn-out books in the library. 

The library now contains more than eight thousand vol- 
umes, about six thousand of which are in the circulating 
library. Of the remainder, about four hundred volumes are 
used as books of reference ; and more than sixteen hundred 
volumes are made up of congressional documents and other 
matters of equal or less value. 

The annual circulation of books is about twenty-four thou- 
sand volumes, and there has of late been a slight increase in 
the number of our patrons. 

The propriety of a larger annual appropriation for the sup- 
port and increase of the library than has been customary in 
times past is respectfully commended to the consideration 
of the city government. 

By a slight change now being made in the library-rooms, 
accommodations will be made for seven thousand volumes 
more than we now have. Shall the space be filled ? 

I would suggest that an insurance of at least $5,000 should 
be placed upon the library. 

Accompanying this is a list of the books placed in the 
library since the publication of the last supplemental cata- 
logue. 

DANIEL F. SECOMB, Librarian.

REPORT OE THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council : 

At the adjourned law term held in August last the law 
questions in the suit of John F. Edgerly and wife v. Concord 
were decided in favor of the city, and this probably ends the 
case. 

The suit of Ann G. Currier v. Concord follows Edgerly v. 
Concord, a nonsuit having been entered at the October term, 
1882. 

The suit of Concord v. Warner was tried before Hon. W. 
H. H. Allen at the October term, and the decision was in 
favor of the city. The amount of the bill, $37.78, has been 
collected of Warner and paid over to the city treasurer. 

The petition of Lydia W. Clough was heard by Judge 
Allen at the April term, 1882, and the decision was that the 
said Lydia W. Clough be allowed to file her claim in the 
office of the city clerk within a certain time. She filed her 
claim within the time allowed by the court, and on the 10th 
day of July, 1882, she sued the city, claiming damages to the 
amount of $3,000. The case has not yet been tried. 

March 1st, 1882, William K. Norton sued the city for dam- 
ages to himself and team, occasioned, as he alleges in his 
writ, by a defect in the highway leading from the city proper 
to West Concord, at a point nearly opposite the new state 
prison. The accident happened on the 13th day of January, 
1882, and the amount of damages claimed is $1,000. There 
have been some efforts made to settle this case, and it may 



126 

yet be arranged to the satisfaction of all parties. If not set- 
tled, it will probably be tried at the April term, 1883. 

June 12th, 1882, Marcus P. Norton, trustee and assignee 
in trust, et als., sued the city in the United States circuit 
court to recover damages for an alleged infringement of 
certain letters-patent of the plaintiff for a relief valve attach- 
ed to steam fire-engines. The amount of damages claimed 
is $40,000. He has also brought similar actions against the 
cities of Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth, and Dover, in this 
state. Concord has united with these cities in making a 
common defence against this extortionate and unrighteous 
demand. Patent lawyers have been retained to conduct the 
defence, and other steps have been taken to secure a fair 
trial of the cases. It will be in order for trial at the May 
term, 1883, of said court at Portsmouth. 

October 26, 1882, the city brought a bill in equity against 
one John B. Giles, of said Concord, asking that said defend- 
ant be commanded to remove a certain building owned by 
him and projecting some ten feet into and over the " Kit 
Factory road," so-called, in West Concord. Upon this there 
was a temporary injunction granted. December 26, 1882, 
the defendant answered, denying the material allegations of 
the bill. It will be heard at the April term, 1883. 

The suits of Clough and Norton v. Concord, the " Knibbs 
Patent suit," so-called, and the bill against Giles, are all the 
cases now in court in which the city is a party.

REGULATIONS 

OF THE 

CONCORD PRECINCT FIRE DEPARTMENT, 

ADOPTED BY THE BOARD OF ENGINEERS, JANUARY, 1874. 



Article 1. Any engine or hose company, running 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 be- 
long to such company so receiving. 

Art. 3. Each engine and hose company shall have 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 a reasonable 
distance. 

Art. 4. No company shall take possession of a hydrant or 
reservoir, unless their hose and apparatus for attaching to 
the same are at hand and ready for use. The company 
which shall be thus ready shall be entitled to such hydrant 
or reservoir ; but, upon the order of an engineer, another 



149 

company may attach a second line of hose from such hydrant 
or steamer, in case the same may be necessary, — such com- 
pany 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 fire, will be 
allowed to proceed faster than a walk, and at all times to 
keep on the right of the street. Drivers are strictly enjoined, 
in proceeding to a fire, to use the utmost care and caution 
consistent with promptness. Racing between companies is 
forbidden, under any circumstances. Any collision or cas- 
ualty occurring to horses or apparatus will be considered a 
sufficient cause for the suspension of the driver in charge at 
the time. 

Art. 7. 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. 8. In case of fire, the foreman first arriving shall be 
in command until the arrival of an engineer. 

Art. 9. Any order issued by the chief, or an assistant en- 
gineer, shall be promptly obeyed.
