Committee on Accounts and Claims have been paid, and no 
claims against the city which the city would be liable to pay are 
known to remain outstanding, with the exception of those men- 
tioned under the heading of unfunded debts ; and the balance 
in the hands of the treasurer is fifty-two thousand one hundred 
and fifty-nine dollars and five cents ($52,159.05).

REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS. 



To the City Council : 

The foregoing report of the superintendent of the Water- 
Works to this board (which is made a part hereof) shows the 
receipts and expenditures on account of the works during the 
past fiscal year. 

It will be noted that the receipts exceed those of any previous 
year by a considerable sum. This excess is due in part to in- 
creased receipts for the use of hydrants ; but there has been an 
increase of Si, 424. 88 from other sources. Said receipts do not 
include any income from the extensions of the works to Mill- 
ville and Penacook, and only a small sum from the West Con- 
cord extension. It appears, therefore, that the consumption of 
water in the compact part of the city has largely increased dur- 
ing the year. 

Early in the year citizens of the villages of West Concord, 
Penacook, and Millville made applications to the city council for 
enlargements of the water precinct so as to include their villages. 
Those applications were referred to this board for investigation 
and advice, and, after making careful investigations with refer- 
ence to the feasibility of supplying water from Penacook lake 
to these villages, the expense of doing so, the necessity there- 
for, and the probable income to arise from said extensions, the 
board unanimously came to the conclusion that the public good 
required that the extensions should be made, and they so report- 
ed to the city council. The city council thereupon passed ordi- 
nances enlarging the water precinct as prayed for by the citizens 
above named, and providing the means for making said exten- 
sions. As soon as these ordinances were adopted, we took steps 
to make the extensions, and are happy to be able to report, at 
this time, that they have all been made, and are now supplying 
water to said villages. 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 97 

Our experience with cement-lined pipes has been so satisfac- 
tory that we decided to use that kind of pipe for making said 
extensions. The contracts, therefore, were let to Messrs. Good- 
hue & Biruie, of Springfield, Mass., who laid our second main 
from the pond in 1882. The work was all done under the im- 
mediate supervision of our superintendent, and the frequent in- 
spection of the board. It lias been thoroughly done, and the 
materials used have been the best procurable. It gives us pleas- 
ure to testify to the faithfulness and honorable dealing of the 
contractors. 

The extension to Mill ville required an enlargement of the 
means of supplying water to the distribution pipes which lead 
over the hill toward Millville in Centre, School, Warren, and 
Pleasant streets. Accordingly, a twelve-inch pipe has been laid 
through Rumford street from Franklin to School street, and a 
ten-inch pipe from the latter point to Pleasant street. It is be- 
lieved that this pipe will reinforce the other distribution pipes in 
that vicinity so as to supply a sufficient volume of water to con- 
sumers at Millville at all times, having a sufficient head for their 
purposes, and without seriously interfering with the privileges of 
water-takers at the higher points of the city. In fact, we think 
this pipe has improved the pressure at these higher points by 
keeping a more constant supply of water there, and neutralizing 
the draft that was formerly made upon the higher points by the 
consumers at the lower levels. This extension has been contem- 
plated since 1882, and this seemed to be the proper time for 
making it. 

We have also laid a six-inch pipe from the main into Blossom 
Hill cemetery. The means of furnishing water there prior to 
this change were wholly inadequate. 

The cost of these extensions is stated in the superintendent's 
report. The income from them will probably be sufficient to 
pay the additional cost of maintenance and the interest charges 
upon the money which represents their cost. The permanent 
indebtedness of the city will be increased about $45,000 on 
account of these extensions. The balance of their cost will be 
paid from the income of the works. 

The citizens of Penacook gave a banquet to the city govern- 
ment and the water board on the evening of January 20, 1888, 



98 



CITY OF CONCORD. 



in honor of the completion of the extension of the works to that 
village. It was a graceful token of their appreciation of this

of the board on that occasion, gave an historical account of the

ADDRESS 

OF 

JOHN KIMBALL, 

President of the Board of Water Commissioners, 
at the Banquet, Jan. 20, 1888, celebrating the 
Introduction of Water into Penacook. 

It is now fifty-seven years since I made my home in this vil- 
lage. It is always pleasant for me to come here, because I am 
sure of a cordial welcome. I am not, however, entitled to more 
consideration than my associates and others who have earnestly 
labored for the benefits you now enjoy in the introduction of 
pure water from Penacook lake. 

There are three principal systems of supplying water to towns 
and cities : The reservoir or gravity system, the stand pipe, and 
the Holly system. The reservoir is the best, but in those places 
where sufficient bodies of water are so located that the water 
will not flow to the town by its own weight, raising it by means 
of pumps driven by steam or water power becomes a necessity, 
and the stand pipe, or the Holly system, is usually adopted. Our 
city is highly favored in having within its borders a lake which 
is one hundred and twenty feet higher than Main street, and 
more than fifty feet above the square in front of this building. 

It is fifteen years the 14th of this month since the water from 
Long Pond was admitted into the pipes which conducted it to 
the main streets of the city. We meet this evening to refer to 
some of the early benefactors who spent their time and money 
to supply the town with water, and briefly review the rise and 
progress of the Concord Water- Works during that time. 

The supply of water for Concord previous to 1873 was ob- 
tained principally from springs near the base of " sand hill." 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 105 

In the southern part of the town wells were used ; some of them 
are now in use. As early as July 2, 1829, William Low, Jacob 
B. Moore, Stephen Brown, Joseph Low, and their associates, 
were constituted a corporation, with a capital of $2,000, called 
the " Concord Aqueduct Association," empowered to take water 
from the springs before mentioned and deliver it to customers, 
and charge such price as they deemed expedient. It is not now 
known that this association ever did any business. This act on 
the part of leading citizens of the town nearly sixty years ago 
shows that the people had the same interest and desire for a 
bountiful supply of pure running water that we have now. 

Mr. Amariah Pierce supplied water through an aqueduct made 
of logs to the distillery, which was located near the iron store 
in Depot square, and to other customers. The logs were of 
white pine, about twelve feet long and six to eight inches in 
diameter. The auger used to bore the hole through the logs 
was the pod auger. It required considerable skill to start the 
auger at the end of the log and bore the hole through it for 
twelve feet and come out in the centre at the extreme end. Mr. 
Pierce was successful in his efforts, and some of his logs have 
been found in a sound condition within a few years. 

Mr. Nathan Call succeeded Mr. Pierce, and being desirous of 
extending his works, and needing more capital, he obtained a 
charter, July 7, 1849, incorporating himself and others as the 
"Torrent Aqueduct Association," with a capital of $20,000. 
Mr. Call will be remembered as an energetic man, and while the 
Association was in his charge the enterprise was a success. 
After his death the business was conducted by his son until the 
stock owned by his heirs was sold to James R. Hill, who carried 
it on for several years, when he sold his interest to Nathaniel 
White. 

Henry M. Robinson had commenced to supply water from 
what is now White's park and other springs. After his decease 
Mr. White purchased the rights of the heirs, and thus became 
the owner of nearly all the water property in the main part of 
the city. Mr. White increased the capacity of his works by 
adding more springs, but the demand for water being more than 
he could supply, he sought to increase the amount by pumping 
it from Merrimack river, but on account of the expense the 



106 CITY OF CONCORD. 

plan was not successful. We are largely indebted to Mr. 
White for the efforts he made to supply the city with water for 
about ten years previous to 1873. 

After the great fire of 1851, when a large number of build- 
ings on the east side of Main street were destroyed, there was 
an increased anxiety among the people in regard to the limited 
supply of water, so much so that the city council appointed 
Joseph B. Walker, John Abbott, and Benjamin Grover a com- 
mittee "to inquire as to the feasibility 7 and cost of abundantly 
supplying the compact part of the city with water for fire and 
other purposes." This committee made a report December 16, 
1859. They say they have endeavored to ascertain, — 

" First. The wants of this part of the city in respect to 
water. 

" Second. The best means of securing a full supply of it." 

Under the first head they say " our population is supplied in 
part from wells and the several aqueduct associations before 
named." Under the second head they give five different sources 
of supply, viz., Merrimack river, Horse Shoe pond, Ash brook, 
Little pond, and Long pond, giving the last the preference. 
"Long pond is distant three and one half miles from the state- 
house, and has an area of 265 acres, and is in some places seven- 
ty-five feet deep. Its water is soft, pure, perfectly transparent, 
and abundant in quantity." They estimated the cost of the 
introduction and distribution at $172,475.35, and say, "The 
most serious objection that presents itself to the immediate 
accomplishment of this project is the cost of its execution." 
The city council and the people seemed to agree with the com- 
mittee, as nothing more was done for eleven years. The War 
of the Rebellion had begun and ended. The population and 
wealth of the city had increased. The people had become ac- 
customed to a high rate of taxation, and the demand for an 
abundant supply of water was imperative. 

July 30, 1870, the city council appointed Lyman D. Stevens, 
Josiah Minot, and fifteen others, known as the committee of 
seventeen, to report to the city council the proper course to be 
taken " to secure the early introduction of an adequate supply 
of pure, fresh water, from Long poud." October 29, 1870, 
this committee reported that "measures be taken, on behalf of 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 107 

the city, to obtain the necessary legislation at the next session 
of the legislature, and in the meantime plans and details be 
prepared ready for the work when the proper time came for 
commencing it." Their recommendation was referred to a 
special committee consisting of Josiah Minot, B. A. Kimball, 
J. M. Hill, and D. A. Warde. August 10, 1871, the special 
committee reported that they had procured from the legislature 
the necessary act tk for the purpose of introducing into and dis- 
tributing through the more compact parts of said city an 
adequate supply of water for extinguishing fires aud for the use 
of its citizens, and for other proper purposes." 

They also submitted the form of an ordinance, which was 
adopted December 30, 1871, placing the management and direc- 
tion of the water-works of the city in a board of water commis- 
sioners, consisting of six citizens and the mayor, for the time 
being. This ordinance was strenuously opposed in both 
branches of the city council, but after a lengthened discussion 
it was passed by the necessary vote to secure its adoption. It 
is not improper to say here that the wise forethought and good 
judgment of Messrs. Joseph T. Clough, Franklin A. Abbott, 
and Franklin J. Emerson, members of the city council of 1871, 
have been fully confirmed by the history of the works duriug the 
past fifteen years. 

January, 1872, the mayor and aldermen appointed J. M. Hill, 
B. A. Kimball, J. Minot, D. A. Warde, B S. Warren, and E. L. 
Knowlton, commissioners. James A. Weston, then governor, 
was appointed engineer, and C. C. Luud assistant engineer. 
The right to draw one million gallons daily from the pond was 
obtained from the owners of the water-power, for which was 
paid $60,000. The stock of Torrent Aqueduct Association, and 
the water rights owned by Nathaniel White, were purchased by 
the city for $20,000; also $21,344.61 was paid for other water 
rights and land damages. 

Contracts were immediately made with the American Gas & 
Water Pipe Company of New Jersey to construct, in all respects 
complete for operation, the main line from Long pond to the 
northerly end of State street, and all the pipes for the dis- 
tribution of water therefrom throughout the main portion of the 
city, together with the setting of gates, hydrants, and other 



108 CITY OF CONCORD. 

appendages, for $143,882.74. The cost of the works up to 
December 31, 1874, was $351,293.45. 

Water was admitted into the pipes from the pond January 14, 
1873, being only eight months from the time the contractors 
commenced work, and since that time pipes have been laid and 
water has been distributed to nearly every family and building 
within the compact part of the city. The burdens upon the 
people have been large, and taxes have been increased, but the 
blessings secured by possessing an abundant supply of pure 
water outweigh all the burdens, even were they much larger than 
they now are. 

After an experience of eight years it was found that the de- 
mand for water had so increased that the fourteen-iuch main 
pipe was not sufficient to furnish a continuous supply to the 
higher points of the precinct. Contracts were immediately made 
for a second and larger main pipe, of eighteen inches diameter, 
to be laid from the dam to the junction of State and Rum ford 
streets. This was finished in the fall of 1882, at a cost of 
$44,000. This brings us down to January 1, 1883, five years ago. 

The commissioners close their report for 1882 in the following 
rose-colored language : 

" Our city has now been supplied with water from Long pond 
for ten years. The water supplied has been pure and generally 
abundant. Takers have increased; rates have been reduced; 
large improvements have been made in the works ; and the in- 
come is ample to pay interest charges on the bonded debt, and 
all expense for care and maintenance. As our population 
increases, the demands upon the water-works will increase, but 
the stores in reserve are ample for generations to come. Its 
blessings literally flow to us continually and abundantly, and at 
a reasonable rate." 

The history of the water-works for the next four years was to 
record an unusual gain in the number of families supplied ; the 
erection of more fire hydrants, au increase in the receipts for 
the use of water, and generally in the fulfilment of the anticipa- 
tions of the water commissioners as expressed in all their re- 
ports. But their labors were not complete. There was remain- 
ing a portion of the city, which could be reached by water-pipes, 
that was not supplied. The desire for an abundant supply of 



WATER DEPARTMENT, 109 

water enjoyed by the people of the main village had become 
contagions. The citizens of West Concord came to the city 
council and asked to be admitted to the water precinct. This 
petition was followed by another from this village of Penacook, 
and still another from that part of the city now known as " St. 
Paul's School." These three petitions were referred to the 
water board, with the request of the council that the water 
board advise them as to the proper disposition to be made of 
the petitions. 

After a careful consideration of the subject embraced in the 
petitions, the water board returned them to the city council with 
the following endorsement: " Voted unanimously, That the 
board of water commissioners recommend that the prayers of 
the petitioners be granted." It should be placed to the credit 
of the city council that in considering these petitions and the 
recommendation of their water board all sectional and partisan 
feelings were laid aside. Its members seemed to vie with each 
other in their efforts to bury past differences, and proceeded to 
accomplish the work before them in the best possible manner. 

The ordinance empowering the water board to proceed with 
the work, and to place the large amount required to pay for it 
at their disposal, passed both boards of the city council by a 
unanimous vote. Contracts were made with Messrs. Goodhue 
& Birnie, of Springfield, Mass. (the same party who laid the 
second main pipe in 1882), to lay all the water pipe necessary, 
and before December 1, last, the objects so earnestly desired 
were successfully accomplished. 

The following statistics from the books at the water commis- 
sioners' office, January 1, 1888, are here given for general 
information : 

The whole amount expended on account of construction is $481,224.38 
Amount paid for interest on the debt of the water-works is 321,200.64 
Amount paid for care and maintenance, 35,848.15 

Total, $838,273.17 

Amount collected from water consumers, and water for 

hydrants, to date is $350,798.31 

The present debt of the city on account of the water- 
works is ... : $415,000.00 

It will take about $5,000 more to complete and perfect 

the works, which will increase the debt to $450,000.00 



110 CITY OF CONCORD. 

It is proper to mention here that those citizens, twenty-four 
in all, who have served the city as members of the water board, 
have not asked or received compensation for their services or 
expenses. Of the twenty-four members of the board, five have 
died, viz., David A. Warde, Edward L. Knowlton, Abel B. 
Holt, James R. Hill, and John Abbott. This is not the time, 
and I am not the man, to pronounce their eulogy, but those of 
us who were associated with them and knew them best have a 
pleasant recollection of the earnestness and devotion manifested 
by them in all measures which tended to the improvement and 
prosperity of the city and its people. 

I have briefly reviewed the history of the Concord Water- 
Works for the last fifteen years. We meet here to-night in 
response to your invitation to join with you in celebrating an 
event important to all the people in this city, but more particu- 
larly to those who have their homes and places of business in 
this prosperous village. I will leave it to you to express your 
sentiments on this subject, and, in behalf of those for whom I 
speak, again assure you that in the matter of the introduction 
of water, and all other things which tend to build up and improve 
our city, you will find us ready at all times to endeavor to pro- 
vide liberally for the best good of all the people within this 
beautiful citv.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 145 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



To the City Council : 

In order to more fully meet the requirements of our progres- 
sive and enlightened citizens, a new departure in sanitation was 
inaugurated at your meeting in March, 1887, giving the board 
of health more power and additional funds to use in promoting 
the public health of our city ; and your board of health beg 
leave to submit their report. 

An organization of the board was effected at once, and a 
health officer, as provided for in the new ordinance, was ap- 
pointed. Section 3 provides that this health officer shall be on 
active duty from May 1 until October 31 ; and thereafter he 
shall receive fifty cents per hour when assigned to any duty. 
It is plain that with an appropriation of only five hundred dol- 
lars, it was practically impossible to secure any one for this 
position having an expert knowledge of sanitary work. More 
than this, your board have labored under the embarrassment of 
having to change the health officer. As the pay was small, and 
our first appointee, after a month of effective service, received 
a flattering offer of a position in the department of state, he 
felt it to be but justice to himself and family to accept it, and 
resign his position as health officer. Much as the board re- 
gretted to lose the services of Mr. Merrill, we could but con- 
gratulate him upon his more congenial employment ; and in 
looking about for some one to take his place, we were fortunate 
in securing the services of Mr. Howard M. Cook for the remain- 
der of the year. 

While neither of these gentlemen had received any special 
education in the duties of an efficient health officer, yet so assid- 
uous were they in the pursuit of a knowledge of its peculiar 
requirements, and so wisely were the instructions of the board 
and your ordinance carried out, that we have reason to con- 
gratulate ourselves and the public upon the selection. The 
10 



146 CITY OF CONCORD. 

fact that we have received from our citizens no report deroga- 
tory to the uniform courtesy of these officers is sufficient com- 
mendation. 

The reports of the health officers are herewith appended. See 
pages 151 and 153. 

The ordinance establishing and defining the duties of the 
board of health was characteristic of the comprehensive and 
progressive ideas of the members of our city government ; and 
while it might seem arbitrary in its operation, yet it was only a 
strict interpretation of our statute law, and the great funda- 
mental principle of individual and communal right to pure air, 
pure water, and an uncontaminated soil. The ordinance, and 
the rules and regulations which the board have adopted, are 
commended to the attention of our citizens. See pages 162 and 
168. 

To take cognizance of the interests of health and life among 
our citizens ; to make sanitary investigations and inquiries in 
respect to the causes of disease, more especially of epidemic, 
contagious, and infectious diseases, and the sources of mortality ; 
to gather information regarding these matters for diffusion 
among the people, — are duties which state and municipal author- 
ities owe the people. In no department of life is this better 
exemplified than when an epidemic is developed. Then every 
individual has a vital interest in his neighbor's conduct, and the 
community as a whole is deeply concerned in what every mem- 
ber is doing. If any quarter suffer with an epidemic, the air of 
nearly the whole city becomes vitiated. Selfishness and igno- 
rance should have no part in the administration of laws affecting 
the public health. It is the duty of health boards to prevent, so 
far as possible, any disregard of sanitary regulations, the aim 
of which is to secure for all, rich and poor alike, a matter 
so universal and vital to their interests as health. 

Individual and collective sanitation should always be the 
same. A family and a community are relatively interested 
alike in securing health, freedom from suffering, and the exclu- 
sion of every form of preventable disease. 

Health boards are but exponents of a law having universal 
application, that all shall be protected in their rights to secure 
life, health, and the pursuit of happiness, no part of which can 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 147 

be made available without pure air, pure water, and a soil un- 
contaminated by individual or communal influences. This, we 
believe, was the first and only object of your ordinance ; and 
your board of health, in issuing rules and regulations, have had 
no desire to be arbitrary or to make unnecessary burdens. It 
is our aim to render life more perfect, disease less frequent, 
and death more remote ; and in order to do this, it becomes 
necessary that every good citizen be as faithful in excluding 
from his premises and their surroundings all matters not sani- 
tary in their character, as he would be in excluding, from his 
family, influences derogatory to good morals, or persons having 
no respect for the decalogue. 

The health officer, in his report, has called your attentiou to 
a few matters pertaining to drains and sewers which we would 
respectfully ask you earnestly to consider, as it is a matter of 
vital interest to the inhabitants of those localities. In this con- 
nection the board of health desire to once more call your atten- 
tion to the fact that there is no supervision of the city sewer- 
age system. The committee on sewers and drains, like the 
members of the board of health, have other duties that claim 
their attention, and the time spent in this special work is taken 
from already over-crowded hours. Supervision under such con- 
ditions cannot be considered anything but a makeshift, and 
cannot be effective. No good business man will affirm that 
business principles would prompt any man or a syndicate of 
men to put one or two hundred thousand dollars into an under- 
taking, and then leave it to take care of itself. This is practi- 
cally what has been done in regard to the sewers of Concord. 
When the board of health find instances where house-drains, in 
their connection with the main sewer, have one or more lengths 
of pipe left out and the ditch filled, the true condition being 
discovered only after a considerable period, they believe it be- 
comes self-evident that a competent supervisor is needed. 
Other cities have found it necessary to regulate plumbing, as 
well as the laying of sewers and draius, and the board have dis- 
covered no evidence that this city will prove an exception. On 
the contrary, the inspections of the board show that in securino- 
those modern accessories which in large cities are absolutely 
necessary, the average landlord, householder, and plumber have 



148 CITY OF CONCORD. 

little or no idea of costs and compensations, but are willing to 
trust to any hap-hazard suggestion that has a semblance of 
modern sanitation. The board have found water-closets with 
only direct water pressure from a pipe so small as to be entirely 
inadequate for the purpose intended ; water-closets with neither 
soil pipe or other ventilation ; drain connections with cellars 
having no traps, and in low places having no means to prevent 
the back flow of storm-water ; drain pipes so laid that at points 
in the cellar they are lower than the street sewer. These and 
many other matters seem to demand a most rigid supervision 
on the part of some one who can give his entire time to this im- 
portant factor in the health of our city. No sewer or drain, 
whether public or private, should be allowed to be constructed 
until a plan of the same has been submitted to some one thor- 
oughly competent to decide upon its being suitable for the 
place, and likely to prove satisfactory to all interested. Neither 
should any such sewer or drain be accepted and covered in 
until it has been tested by a competent supervisor, and a record 
made of this fact. When this is done, people will have less 
occasion for digging up their drains and renewing their water- 
closet fixtures, both of which are expensive, and often lead to 
disease, and sometimes seem to be the direct cause of death. 

The board would call especial attention to the fact that 
among the complaints made to the health officer, fifty were in 
regard to offensive privy vaults, and fifteen in regard to bad 
drainage of sink-water, and that of the houses inspected two 
hundred and eighty-five on the line of a sewer have drains run- 
ning into a cesspool or old well, under a stable, or on the 
ground. It does seem as though all intelligent persons would 
prefer to connect their house-drains with the sewer, and put in 
a water-closet with the proper fixtures. This is the easiest and 
most economical way to dispose of this material without any 
offence to the senses, or danger to the health of themselves or 
their neighbors. 

Complaint has come to the board of health occasionally that 
the city ordinance prescribes that no decaying animal or vege- 
table matter shall be allowed to remain on any lot or premises in 
the compact part of the city, but provides no means for the 
removal of the same. The plea is made by some that it is quite 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 149 

a tax financially to be obliged to remove this refuse matter in 
small quantities. At present the city teams go through the 
business portion of the city on certain days, and carry away 
whatever is set out for that purpose. It would seem eminently 
proper to have the team in like manner go through all the 
streets in the compact part of the city at regular intervals. 

This report now comes to a vital point, upon which depends 
the success or failure of the work. One of the greatest obsta- 
cles that the board have had to overcome during the year has 
been the financial phase of the question. To successfully per- 
form the duties of health officer a man must be intelligent, far 
seeing, an apt student of human nature, must have a general 
knowledge of all municipal affairs, and make a special study of 
sanitary engineering. It is essential when such a person is 
found that his services should be retained ; but this is impossible 
with the present small salary of the office. He receives two 
dollars and a half per day for six months of the year, and fifty 
cents an hour for investigating any complaints that may be made 
during the other six months. In other words, he is guaranteed 
about four hundred dollars yearly. A common laborer who 
carries a hod earns more. It would seem that an office which 
demands a man of more than ordinary ability should have a 
reasonable salary. 

The work of the past season is but a beginning. The house- 
to-house inspection is but the taking of bearings for more effec- 
tive work later. The board believe that the public are becom- 
ing interested, and demand that the work shall be pushed 
forward. If you choose to remove this financial embarrassment 
to more successful work, it will no doubt be a paying invest- 
ment. You will never receive a dividend in dollars and cents, 
but it will come in that which is far dearer to you — the health, 
happiness, and life of your loved ones.

150 CITY OF CONCORD. 



REPORT OF THE CITY PHYSICIAN. 



To the City Coxmcil : 

The duties devolving upon the City Physician during the past 
year have been as follows : 

Whole number of visits, .... 223 

Prescriptions at office, ..... 47 

Obstetric cases attended, .... 1 

There have been no surgical cases, and a large proportion of 
the sickness has been of a chronic nature. 

The amount of sickness among the poor, as will be seen, falls 
considerably below that of the preceding year. Heretofore, all 
cases of sickness occurring among the county charges who are 
boarded in the city have been treated by the city physician, and 
included in the summary of his report. But on the first of 
December a majority of the county commissioners saw fit to 
give this work to one of their own political faith, and accord- 
ingly transferred it to Dr. D. E. Sullivan. As the county cases 
have usually constituted two thirds of the business reported, 
the duties of the city physician during the coming year will 
probably not be arduous. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. C. CUMMINGS, 

City Physician.

REPORT OF HEALTH OFFICER MERRILL. 



To the Board of Health : 

Having acted as Health Officer only from May 1, 1887, to June 
15, 1887, it will be evident that no extended report will be nec- 
essary, nor will it be expected. 

To meet the requirements of the new ordinance creating this 
office, it was necessary to formulate and print various kinds of 
reports, which were mostly done under the direct supervision of 
your board. The preparation of these forms delayed the work 
of house-inspection some ten days after assuming my duties ; 
in the meantime, many personal complaints of nuisances arising 
from various causes were attended to and abated. 

I am satisfied that the required inspection from house to house 
is an advance in sanitation in the right direction. To make this 
work as effective as it should be, requires a general knowledge 
of house and drainage construction as well as plumbing ; still I 
trust my inspections as recorded may prove of advantage, if not 
so complete in all details as a more extended experience would 
have made them. 

This feature of inspection, so far as my observation goes, 
meets heartily the approval of the general public. The very few 
objections made, I found only proved the wisdom of this ordi- 
nance. 

I believe this inspection, and the results thereof as recorded, 
should be continued until all buildings which the law contem- 
plates are reported upon. Without specifying any particular 
building or buildings, there are a number of localities which 
should be inspected, in my opinion, by the health officer several 
times during the summer months. 

Many material facts from this inspection are placed on rec- 
ord — facts which may prove of great value, especially should 
our city have an epidemic of any nature. 



152 CITY OF CONCORD. 

I attribute one great source of illness to the existence of the 
privy-vaults in the compact part of the city, a large per cent, of 
which are too near living-rooms. In many instances this is un- 
avoidable so long as the privy system is allowed. Many are 
not properly constructed, nor properly taken care of, caus- 
ing such a condition of things as must, from its very nature, 
prove detrimental to health. More complaints arose from this 
cause than from all others combined. The only effective remedy 
is an ordinance requiring all in the compact part of the city to 
connect with the sewer. With our complete sewerage, it would 
seem that there was really no good reason why this should not 
be done. From expressions made on this subject, I believe 
such an ordinance would almost invariably be cheerfully com- 
plied with. I trust that your views on this subject may coincide 
with my own. In this connection, before closing my report, it 
may not be improper for me to express the hope that the public 
generally will in all ways sustain this new departure for the reg- 
ulating and enforcement of our sanitary system. While to the 
city as a whole, on one season's trial, no marked results may be 
observed, I am confident that, as time progresses, the plan will 
be more and more earnestly endorsed, and that the compara- 
tively small cost will be considered a wise expenditure. 

I have not made a specific report as to the number of com- 
plaints, number of inspections, and number of nuisances abated ; 
my efficient successor will give such details as will show the 
general workings of the office. 

I highly appreciate the courtesy so cordially extended to me 
officially, and express therefor my sincere thanks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

DARIUS MERRILL, 

Ex-Health Officer.

REPORT OF HEALTH OFFICER COOK. 



To the Board of Health : 

I entered upon the duties of Health Officer on June 16. I 
found that Darius Merrill, who held the office from May 1 till 
that time, had commenced a house-to-house inspection, and was 
conducting the business in a systematic manner. I continued 
the work till November 1, when the time allotted for inspections 
under the ordinance for the year 1887 expired. Blank books 
had been prepared, under your direction, for the use of the 
Health Officer ; and the information desired was obtained by 
observation, and by inquiries of the owners or occupants of the 
premises that were visited. This information related to various 
matters connected mainly with the sanitary condition of the 
same, such as the condition of the street and gutter ; distance 
of shade-trees from the house, and whether preventing sun ex- 
posure ; site of house, damp or dry ; surrounding land, whether 
higher or not ; condition of yard ; stable or outbuildings, distance 
from house, and condition ; privy vaults, kind, and whether 
connected with the sewer, condition, and how near living-rooms, 
or well, if any on the premises ; cesspool, kind, and how near 
the house or well; water-supply, and if from well, how near 
other sources of pollution ; owner, agent, or occupant, and 
whether private, boarding, or tenement house ; sun exposure, 
good or bad ; number of stories and rooms, and whether con- 
structed of wood or brick ; cellar, whether cement, board, or 
earth floor, damp or dry ; ventilation and condition ; house ven- 
tilation, good or bad, and means employed ; window space, 
small or ample ; heating, whether by stove, steam, or furnace ; 
plumbing of house, and whether connected with sewer, cess- 
pool, or surface drain ; house drain-pipe, kind, and if with trap 
and ventilation ; water-closet, location, kind, and ventilation ; 
adjoining nuisauces, if any ; population, men and women ; chil- 
dren, under five years, and between five and fifteen ; number to 
each room ; contagious diseases reported ; deaths, age and cause. 

It was not possible to complete the work, during the time 
allotted, the past season, but most of the streets were visited ;

These complaints, which were both formal and verbal, have 
all been disposed of so far as was practicable. There are two 
or three cases where owners have been notified to connect their 
premises with the street sewer, and were not able to do so the 
past season, but will the coming year. 

In the report of the Board of Health for the year 1886, atten- 
tion was called to the want of proper sewerage in a large num- 
ber of the houses in the city. It was stated that " in too many 
instances the entire sewerage system consists of a piece of lead 



Bad well-water, 

Keeping superphosphate,

Offensive privy vaults, 

Offensive drains, .

pipe four feet long, extending from the sink out through the 
side of the house. Here is poured all the refuse water used by 
the family, to stand in a filthy pool, or to percolate through the 
soil into some neighboring well." The sanitary inspection made 
thus far the past season reveals the fact that there are 388 houses, 
both private and tenement, that are using either surface drains, 
cesspools, old wells, or stable cellars for the purposes of sewerage. 

One thousand copies of the general state law and city ordi- 
nance have been distributed on the streets that were visited ; 
and those who are violating the laws in regard to this matter, 
and have read them, can no longer plead ignorance of their 
requirements. The general laws of the state provide that " no 
person shall occupy, or lease to, or permit any other person to 
occupy, any building within the compact part of the city or town 
as a dwelling-house, unless such building shall be provided with 
suitable privies and vaults, constructed as required by law, and 
with suitable drains or sewers for conveying away the sink- 
water from the premises so used and occupied into some public 
sewer, whenever there shall be one within one hundred feet of 
said dwelling-house ; and whenever there shall be no public 
sewer, then the sink-water shall be conveyed away under 
ground, or otherwise disposed of so as not to be offensive. 
And any person neglecting or refusing to comply with the pro- 
visions of the foregoing section, upon conviction thereof, shall 
be deemed guilty of maintaining a common nuisance, and be 
punished by a fine not exceeding ten dollars for each day of 
such neglect or refusal, after notice from the board of health." 
The city ordinance relatiug to the public health states that "the 
owner, agent, or occupant, or other person having the care of 
any tenement used as a dwelling-house, shall furnish the same 
witli a sufficient drain under ground to carry off the waste 
water ;" and the penalty for a non-compliance with the law is, 
that " upon conviction thereof before the police or other court 
of competent jurisdiction, shall be fined not less than three 
dollars and not more than one hundred dollars, with the costs 
of prosecution, for each offence, except in cases where the pun- 
ishment is made or provided for under the laws of the state, in 
which case the penalty so prescribed shall be imposed." 

It seems strange that any one owning a house on the line of 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 157 

a street sewer should continue to violate the law and incur the 
liability of disease and death by the use of surface drains or 
cesspools. According to the report that I have given, there are 
285 houses that are using these, and some of them are on what 
are termed the best streets in the city. There are 103 usiug 
them that are not on the line or in reach of any sewer, but many 
would be connected if there was one in their vicinity, or built so 
that the} 7 could use it. There are about 30 families living on 
the east side of South Main street, between Chandler street and 
the private way below the house of Robert Woodruff, that can- 
not use the South Main street sewer on account of its being too 
high. Seven families in Avery's and Woodruff's blocks are using 
a drain that empties itself on the side of the hill near the Pres 
cott Organ Co.'s shop and the warehouse of George T. Comins 
It is a great annoyance to those who work there, is one of the 
worst nuisances in the city, and needs to be remedied forthwith. 
A petition for a sewer from this section to connect with the 
Chandler street sewer has been presented to*the city council ; 
and it ought to be granted and the sewer built as soon as prac- 
ticable the coming season. There is a section on Pine street, 
between Warren and Centre streets, that is in need of sewer- 
age ; also, on Warren street, west of Pine street ; and perhaps 
in other sections better known to the Committee on Sewers and 
Drains. This committee has performed a good work the past 
season iu putting in a sewer connecting with the one on Beacon 
street, and that will drain a section near the junction of Wash- 
ington and Rum ford streets. Repairs and improvements have 
also been made on one of the main sewers that empties on 
the east side of Water street at the south end, and which it is 
hoped will prevent any further annoyance from that source. 
The Committee on Sewers and Drains, I understand, have issued, 
during the past season, 110 permits to enter the sewer. In a 
number of cases owners of houses, where the drainage was bad, 
were notified to connect with the sewer, and have complied. It 
seems to me that a general notification should be given to all 
who have not complied with the law in this respect. 

Complaints have been made, in different sections, of offensive 
odors that come from the openings into the street sewer. While, 
in the judgment of those best informed in the matter, it is bet- 



158 CITY OF CONCORD. 

ter to have the odor find its way out at these places rather than 
to be forced into the houses by placing traps at these outlets, 
there ought to be some means employed for flushing the sewers 
whenever it is necessary in the summer season. 

More attention should also be paid to the proper ventilation 
of the drain-pipes leading from the houses into the street sewer. 
While traps, in most instances, have been put in, there is a great 
lack of means for their proper ventilation, according to the rules 
laid down in the ordinance relating to sewers and drains. I 
found a prejudice existing in the minds of some against con- 
necting their houses with the street sewer from the fear of sewer- 
gas or odor ; and they cited instances of those who have had 
trouble from this cause. I think the trouble complained of 
arises not from the street sewer, but from the private one. 
Where a connecting sewer or drain is trapped and properly ven- 
tilated, and the trap looked after that it does not become foul 
or obstructed, I do not believe there would be any trouble. 
Some cases of sickness have occurred that I have no doubt were 
caused by a lack of attention in this respect. 

The sewers in some of the streets iu time of heavy rains are 
either not large enough, or there is not sufficient fall to carry off 
the water ; and, in consequence, a large number of cellars or 
basements have been flooded. The past summer was a wet one, 
and there was a good deal of trouble from damp cellars, and 
from water standing in gardens and lots that were usually dry 
at that season of the year. 

Another matter that demands attention is the existence of so 
many privies, especially in localities where the houses are in 
close proximity. This is the case on a number of street corners 
where the rears of the houses are near together. In many in- 
stances the privies are too near living-rooms, have no proper 
vaults, and will always be a nuisance and an offence ; and water- 
closets ought to be substituted for them. Perhaps the passage 
of an ordinance for their removal, as soon as practicable, would 
be a step in the right direction. I am satisfied that some own- 
ers of houses are waiting for such a law before making a change. 
Good progress has been made the past season in putting in 
water-closets. According to the report of the water depart- 
ment for the year 1886, there were 826 in the city. This year 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 159 

there must be a large increase over that number, and they are 
being put in with a greater regard for ventilation than when first 
introduced. 

It will be seen, from the tabular statement, that there are quite 
a number who are the owners of pigs and hens, and there are a 
few cows kept. Many of these were found in what might not 
be termed the compact part of the city. Section 10 of the ordi- 
nance relating to this matter states that " no person or persons 
shall erect, maintain, or use, within the compact part of any 
ward in the city, any pen or sty for swine." Section 11 states 
that " no person or persons shall keep or use any hog-pen, goat- 
pen, chicken-coop, or barnyard so near to any public highway, 
as, in the opinion of the sanitary officer, may be offensive or in- 
jurious to the public health, or adjoining or abutting any lot 
upon which any other person resides, if so near them as to be 
offensive." The law has been enforced only in cases where 
complaint has been made. It is one of the most difficult duties 
of the Health Officer to decide what to do where hens are kept, 
as in some cases persons are dependent in a measure on them 
for their support ; and he is liable to incur ill-feeling on the 
part of the parties interested. It is certainly not a fit place 
to keep pigs or hens in the compact part of the city, where 
they are liable to become offensive to neighbors ; and if there 
is to be a strict enforcement of the ordinance the coming sea- 
son, due notice ought to be given to those who would be af- 
fected by it, so that they can dispose of their property with- 
out loss. 

There were 71 houses inspected where well-water was used, 
and 15 were using spring-water. Some of these have ceased 
using their wells, and have had Lake Penacook water put in. I 
doubt if there are any of the wells used that are not more or less 
contaminated. Those who have had the water from their wells 
analyzed have found it unfit to use. Some of the wells are situ- 
ated withiu a short distance of privies and sink-drains, and it is 
impossible to prevent the pollution of the water. And in this 
connection, it is proper to say that it is the part of wisdom to 
keep the water of Lake Penacook in as pure a condition as pos- 
sible, and to guard from any danger that may arise from making 
it a place of resort in the summer season. The stable of Mr.

HEALTH ORDINANCE. 



PASSED MARCH 31, 1887. 



CITY OF CONCORD.

Sec. 2. The members of the said board of health shall meet within ten 
days after their election, and shall organize by choosing one of their 
number president and another secretary. They shall nominate some 
person who, in their judgment, possesses the qualifications necessary to 
constitute an efficient sanitary officer, and shall send such name to the 
mayor of the city within twenty days after the creation of the board ; 
and the city council in convention, at their first meeting after receiving 
the name of the person so nominated, shall proceed to ballot upon the 
confirmation of said person as the sanitary officer of the board; and if he 
shall receive a majority of the ballots so cast, he shall be declared elected. 
If the nomination be rejected, the board of health shall be notified of the 
fact within two days thereafter, and it shall within four days after such 
notice nominate another person for such office, whose name shall be pre- 
sented and acted upon in like manner. Should a second nomination be 
rejected, the board of health and city council shall continue in similar 
manner until some person is chosen for the office. The meeting or meet- 
ings of the city council, for the purpose of acting upon second or subse- 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 163 

quent nominations, shall be called within four days after the mayor has 
been notified of the nomination by the board of health. If the board of

and fifty cents. He shall act as the executive officer of the board of 
health, shall serve all orders and notices issued by the board, and shall 
enforce all rules and regulations issued by the board, as well as all the 
ordinances and rules relating to nuisances or other conditions affecting 
the health and comfort of the public. 

Sec. 4. The sanitary officer shall, under the direction of the board of 
health, in the first week of May, commence a systematic house to house 
sanitary inspection, which shall continue until the inspection of the city is

reasonable time of all nuisances found ; and shall give such advice and 
make such recommendations to householders and others as he may deem 
necessary to secure good sanitary conditions. 

Sec. 5. The board of health shall prescribe a blank form upon which 
a complete record of the inspections made by the sanitary officer shall be 
entered; a record shall also be kept by the sanitary officer of all com- 
plaints made to him or the board; of all orders issued ; of all notices 
served ; and of all nuisances abated. All the records kept by the sanitary 
officer shall be submitted to the board of health whenever called for, and 
shall at the end of each fiscal year be placed in the hands of the city clerk. 

Sec. 6. The sanitary officer shall see that sections 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 
12, 13, 14, 15, of chapter XXII of the Revised Ordinances of 1884, relat- 
ing to sewers and drains, are enforced ; and shall perform such other 
duties in the enforcement of the provisions of said ordinance as may be 
authorized by the city council or the committee on sewers ; he shall also 
enforce the provisions of section 11, chapter XXI, relating to the pollu- 
tion of the waters of Penacook lake. 

Sec. 7. No person shall place or leave, or cause to be placed or left, 
in or near any highway, street, alley, or public place, or in any private 



164 CITY OF CONCORD.

will not remove the same, any rubbish, dirt, soot, ashes, hay, shreds, 
oyster, clam, or lobster shells, tin cans, decaying fruit or vegetables, 
waste water, or any refuse animal or vegetable matter whatsoever, nor 
keep in or about any dwelling-house, barn, shed, store, shop, or cellar, 
any of the aforesaid substances in any manner liable to become putrid or 
offensive, or injurious to the public health. 

Sec. 8. No person or persons shall suffer or permit any cellar, vault, 
private drain, pool, sink, privy, sewer, or other place upon any premises 
or grounds belonging to or occupied by him or them, to become offensive

Sec. 9. No person or occupant or any person having control or charge 
of any lot, tenement, premises, building, or other place, shall cause or 
permit any nuisance to be or remain in or upon said lot, tenement, build- 
ing, or other place, or between the same and the centre of the street, 
lane, or alley adjoining. 

Sec. 10. No person or persons shall erect, maintain, or use, within the 
compact part of any ward in the city, any pen or sty for swine, swill- 
house, or building for rendering any offal, tainted or damaged lard, 
tallow, or any putrid animal substances, or for the deposit of green pelts 
or skins. 

Sec. 11. No person or persons shall keep or use any hog-pen, goat- 
pen, chicken-coop, or barnyard so near to any public highway as, in the 
opinion of the sanitary officer, may be offensive or injurious to the public 
health, or adjoining or abutting any lot upon which any other person 
resides, if so near them as to be offensive, or in any manner that the con- 
tents of such hog-pen, goat-pen, chicken-coop, or barnyard are dis- 
charged on said lot, or any street, lane, or alley in the city. 

Sec. 12. The owner, agent, occupant, or other person having the care 
of any tenement used as a dwelling-house, or anj r other building, shall 
furnish the same with a sufficient drain, under ground, to carry off the 
waste water; and also with a suitable privy, which, if not properly con- 
nected with the public sewer, shall have a vault which shall be sunk under 
ground, and built in the manner hereinafter prescribed, and of capacity 
proportionate to the number of inhabitants of such tenement, or of those 
having occasion to use such privy ; and no person shall suffer any waste 
or stagnant water to remain in any cellar, or upon any lot or vacant 
grounds by him owned or occupied, in the compact part of any ward of 
the city.

the inside of the same shall be at least two feet distant from the line of 
every adjoining lot, unless the owner of said adjoining lot shall otherwise 
agree and consent ; and also from any street, lane, alley, court, square) 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 165 

public place, public or private passage-way. Every vault and cesspool 
shall be made tight, so that the contents thereof cannot escape therefrom, 
and shall be securely covered ; and no person shall open a vault, privy, 
or cesspool, or remove the contents thereof, or haul such contents 
through any street in the city, from and after the first day of May to the 
first day of November of each year, between the hours of six o'clock in 
the morning and nine o'clock in the evening. 

Sec. 14. Any person or persons intending to construct a privy vault or 
cesspool shall first obtain a written permit to do so from the board of 
health, signed by the sanitary officer. Each permit shall designate the 
location on lot, distance from any house, well, or spring, the kind of 
vault or cesspool, and the depth thereof; said permit shall contain a 
printed abstract of the state law and city ordinances relating to the 
construction of privy vaults and cesspools ; but no cesspool for the 
reception of sink or other waste water shall be constructed within one 
hundred feet of a public sewer; no abandoned well shall be used as a 
privy vault, cesspool, or sink. 

Sec. 15. When any vault, privy, cesspool, or drain shall become of- 
fensive or obstructed, the same shall be cleansed and made free ; and the 
owner, agent, occupant, or other person having charge of the premises in 
which any vault, privy, cesspool, or drain may be situated, the state or 
condition of which shall be a violation of the provisions of this chapter, 
shall remove, cleanse, alter, amend, or repair the same within such rea- 
sonable time after a notice in writing to that effect shall be given to either 
of them by the sanitary officer, as shall be expressed in such notice. In 
case of neglect or refusal so to do, the board of health may cause the 
same to be removed, altered, amended, or repaired, as they may deem 
expedient, at the expense of the owner, agent, occupant, or other person 
as aforesaid. 

Sec. 16. No manure from stables, barns, or any other place within the 
compact part of the city, shall be allowed to accumulate until it becomes 
offensive to persons residing in the vicinity, or passing along any street, 
lane, or highway ; and no swill or garbage, or any other animal or vege- 
table substances, shall be allowed to accumulate in or about any premises 
until the same shall become offensive or putrid. 

Sec. 17. The prudential committee, or boards of education, shall not 
admit any scholar into the public schools without satisfactory evidence 
that such scholar has been vaccinated ; and the city physician shall at all 
times be prepared to vaccinate, at the expense of the city, any scholar 
who, from poverty, is unable to pay therefor. 

Sec. 18. It shall be and is hereby made the duty of every physician, 
surgeon, or other person attending upon a case of small-pox, epidemic 
cholera, epidemic dysentery, diphtheria, scarlet fever, typhoid fever, 



166 CITY OF CONCORD. 

measles, vellow fever, or other dangerous contagious, infectious, or pesti- 
lential disease, and every householder, attendant, or agent, in whose 
house a case of any such disease occurs, shall report every such case to 
the sanitary officer or the board of health within twenty-four hours after 
first having knowledge of the same, giving the number of the house, the 
street, avenue, or lane upon which it is situated, and the name of the 
occupant or occupants, with the name and age of the diseased person, if 
known ; and the board may take such action as they deem expedient to 
prevent the spread of such disease. 

Sec. 19. All petitions for the cleansing, removing, or abatement of 
any nuisance shall be made to the board of health, or to its executive 
officer, or to any one of them, verbally or in writing, stating distinctly 
the character of such nuisance, the premises where situated, and the 
reason for its removal or abatement; but if it becomes necessary to insti- 
tute legal proceedings against the party or parties complained of, the 
complainants shall, before such proceedings are instituted, file a complaint 
in writing with the board. 

Sec. 20. A notice seized on an owner, agent, or occupant of any prop- 
erty, or left at the private residence of the owner or agent or occupant, 
or if after due search neither can be found, posted on the front door or 
wall or fence of such property, and a like notice sent to his last known 
post-office address, shall be considered sufficient and ample notice. 

Sec. 21. The sanitary officer shall have the same power to make 
arrests as is by ordinance and law conferred upon the regular police of 
the city, in all cases where any person or persons shall violate the laws 
of the state, city ordinances, orders, rules, or regulations relating to the 
health of the city ; and shall wear a uniform and badge to be prescribed 
by the board. 

Sec 22. The board of health shall provide itself with such blanks 
and record-books, at the expense of the city, as are necessary, and shall, 
at the close of each financial year, make a report to the city council of 
all complaints made to them and the causes for the same, with such sug- 
gestions pertaining to the health of the city as it may deem expedient to 
present, so much of the vital statistics as is necessary, the causes of 
death so far as possible, and such other sanitary information as may be 
called for by the city council. 

Sec. 23. The board of health may make such rules and regulations for 
the prevention and removal of nuisances, for the control and restriction 
of infectious and contagious diseases, and such other regulations relating 
to the public health as in their judgment the health and safety of the 
people may require, which shall take effect when approved by the city 
council, recorded by the city clerk, and copies thereof printed and circu- 
lated among the citizens, or published in one or more of the daily papers 
of the city, or both. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 167 

Sec. 24. The board of health shall meet at such times and places as it 
may deem necessary for the consideration of matters relating to the pub- 
lic health ; they shall investigate, inquire into, and advise in all cases 
referred to them for such purpose by the sanitary officer, and shall direct 
him in such cases. In case the sanitary officer of the board is unable to 
act as the executive officer of the board, through sickness or other good 
cause, the board may select a suitable person to act temporarily in his 
stead, and the said person shall, while so acting, possess all the authority, 
with the same compensation, given the sanitary officer under the provi- 
sion of this chapter. The members of the board of health shall receive as 
compensation for their services the sum of twenty-five dollars each an- 
nually. 

Sec. 25. Any person or persons, company, or corporation, who shall 
violate or cause to be violated, by agent or otherwise, any or either of 
the sections of this chapter, or any or either of the provisions thereof, 
or any or either of the orders, rules, or regulations of the board of health, 
or who shall fail or neglect to comply with any or either of the require- 
ments thereof, by agent or otherwise, upon conviction thereof before the 
police or other court of competent jurisdiction shall be fined not less 
than three dollars and not more than one hundred dollars, with the 
costs of prosecution, for each offence, except in cases where the punish- 
ment is made and provided for under the laws of the state, in which 
cases the penalty so prescribed shall be imposed. 

Sec. 26. Section 4 of chapter VI, and sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 
11, 12, 13, and 14 of chapter XIV, of the Revised Ordinances of 1884, 
are hereby repealed ; also such ordinances and parts of ordinances as are 
inconsistent with this ordinance are hereby repealed. 



168 CITY OF CONCORD. 



RULES OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

Adopted April 29, 1887. Approved by the City Council April 

30, 1887. 

Referring to section 7 of tbe foregoing ordinance, it is plain that it 
was the intent of our city government to establish conditions of cleanli- 
ness, which is the first principle of sanitation, and has more influence 
in the prevention of disease, and in restraining the progress of epidemic 
and infectious influences, than any other rule or regulation. This section 
as well as others, so far as cleanliness is concerned, applies to all parts of 
the city, and the health officer has been especially instructed by the 
board of health to strictly enforce the provisions of all the different sec- 
tions. 

The Board of Health ask the people carefully to read the ordinance, 
and especially to note that it devolves upon them to execute the pro- 
visions thereof, for no money has been appropriated to carry away gar- 
bage or to clean up back yards or alleys; on the contrary, sections 15 
and 25 expressly provide penalties for the neglect or violation of " any or 
either of the sections of this chapter,' 1 etc. Therefore we call upon all our 
citizens to clean out back yards and vacant lots, to prohibit and prevent 
the throwing of garbage and all waste matter into back yards and alleys, 
as well as the dumping of ashes and perishable materials into the street, 
or alley-way, or vacant lots, unless the same had been specified as a 
dumping-ground by the health officer, in which case people so using such 
dumping-grounds must comply with the rules and regulations concerning 
the manner in which such places shall be kept, as well as the material to 
be dumped, for no animal or decaying vegetable material shall be left 
above ground ; and all owners of private ways or vacant lots allowing or 
inciting the filling in with ashes or other material will be held responsible 
for the condition such grounds are found to be in. 

At the present time we are unable to specify but two places for the 
deposit of ashes, broken crockery, scraps of tin, stones, refuse bricks, 
and other waste material that will not become a nuisance by reason of 
decomposition. These are on the bank of the river, upon the city lot 
east of the river and north of the Free Bridge road, and in a similar 
position on the land of Messrs. K.obertson & Rowell, on the west side of 
the river and south of the Free Bridge road. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 169 

Neither of these grounds is to be used for the dumping of any animal 
or vegetable substances that, by putrefaction, will cause stench or other 
nuisance. 

To enable people to carry away dead animals and decaying vegetable 
matters that will become a nuisance unless properly disposed of, the 
Board of Health have appointed George L. Theobald, veterinary under- 
taker, to carry away and properly bury all animals and perishable materi- 
als, and said Theobald has taken upon himself the responsibility of pro- 
viding a proper place whereon to bury such animals, and other matter, 
the same to be accepted by the health officer of the city. 

The Board of Health would hereby specify the following schedule of 
prices as the maximum to be allowed said Theobald for the transporta- 
tion and burying of dead animals, the same to be called for within three 
working hours after being notified that an animal is dead at a given 
place : 

For carrying away and burying a horse, ox, or cow, $5 ; hog or a 
dog, $2 ; cats or pigs, $1 ; a cart-load of decaying vegetable matter, $2. 

Ashes and other matter which will not decompose, and therefore can 
be deposited on the dumping-grounds, will be carted away at reasonable 
rates, and orders can be left with the health officer. 

Sections 10, 12, and 16 refer to conditions not to be allowed " within the 
compact part of any ward in the city," and in the absence of the ordi- 
nance defining the limits of such " compact part of any ward in the 
city," it becomes the duty of the Board of Health to define what is to be 
understood to be "the compact part of any ward in the city." 

Your Board of Health are disposed to be liberal in this matter, so that 
as many families as possible may take advantage of the ordinance govern- 
ing such " compact part of any ward of the city," and as the city has 
expended over one hundred thousand dollars in providing public sewers 
for a considerable portion of the central wards of the city, and whereas 
such expense was incurred solely in the interest of the life and health of 
our citizens, whereby the removal of waste and effete material can be 
rapidly accomplished, it seems naturally to follow that all pai-ts of the 
city having public sewers in the streets should be considered the com- 
pact part of any ward in the city. Therefore the Board of Health define 
the compact part of any of our central wards to be bounded by the Mer- 
rimack river on the east, and extending as far south, north, and west 
through any and all streets which have public sewers. 

In this connection we would respectfully remind the public that section 
14 of the aforesaid ordinance prohibits the construction of a cesspool for 
the reception of sink or other waste water within one hundred feet of a 
public sewer; and section 8 prohibits any person or persons from allow- 
ing any "cellar, vault, private drain, pool, sink, privy, sewer, or other 



170 CITY OF CONCORD. 

place or grounds belonging to or occupied by him or them, to become 
offensive or injurious to the public health ;" while section 12 prescribes 
how all buildings shall be furnished with suitable drains and privies or 
water-closets. 

Section 17, referring to our public schools, must be enforced by our 
boards of education. The city physician and assistant city physician will 
be prepared to vaccinate any scholar to whom the boards of education 
shall give a certificate that he or she is a proper subject to be vaccinated 
at the city's expense by reason of poverty, and all physicians shall give a 
certificate of vaccination, properly filled, to each person as per the blanks 
furnished by the state board of health. 

Under section 18 it becomes the duty of all the physicians or other 
persons attending upon a case of small-pox, epidemic cholera, or dysen- 
tery, diphtheria, scarlet or typhoid fever, measles, or other dangerous, 
contagious, or infectious disease, as well as every householder, attendant, 
or agent, in whose house a case of such disease occurs, to report every such 
case within twenty-four hours after having knowledge of the same; and, 
as the physician, when attending such a case, is the party responsible for 
the proper diagnosis of disease, it is incumbent upon said physician to 
make or cause to be made the proper report to the health officers, and 
when it is within the knowledge of all parties interested that such a 
report has been made, it shall be held sufficient notice, as only one 
report of each case is required ; but no scholar shall attend any public 
school within the limits while suffering from whooping-cough, or while 
any member of the household to which he or she belongs is sick with 
small-pox, diphtheria, measles, or scarlet fever, nor in case such sickness 
has occurred in such household, until he or she shall bring to the teacher 
of the school to which he or she belongs a certificate from the attending 
physician that sufficient time has elapsed and sufficient care has been 
taken to remove any possibility of the infection of other pupils ; and the 
board of health specify the time necessary for that purpose in contagious, 
exanthematous diseases to be until the period of desquamation has 
passed. 

The board also prohibit the throwing of the dejections, from patients 
sick with typhoid fever, epidemic cholera, or dysentery, into public or 
private drains or sewers, cesspools, or on the surface of the ground in 
any part of this city, until these dejections have been properly disin- 
fected ; and the following formula is recommended for that purpose as 
being efficient and inexpensive : 

Corrosive Sublimate and Permanganate Potassa, each, . . 1 dram 

Water, 4 pints 

Mix, and keep well corked for immediate use, of which a cupful is suffi- 
cient for each dejection. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 171 

It is expected that in cases of doubt as to the case being one of conta- 
gion, the physician will report the same to the health officer as suspicious, 
when such measures will be taken as may be deemed necessary, until the 
true nature of the case can be determined. 

The Board of Health have nominated Darius Merrill, of Ward six, to 
be their executive officer and inspector, and would prescribe that his uni- 
form should be that of the police of this city, with the addition of a small 
badge with health officer inscribed thereon. The health officer can be 
found at his office between the hours of 11 and 12 A. m., and 1 to 2 p. m., 
and all complaints must be made to him, as he is required to keep a 
record of the same. A letter-box will be provided at his office, and 
complaints can be made in writing at any time, and dropped into this 
box ; but all complaints and communications must be signed by the com- 
plainant, as anonymous communications will not receive any attention.

Report of the Commissioner of Highways. 

To the City Council: 

In conformity to the requirements of the city ordinances, I 
submit herewith my report for the year 1887. Although the 
commissioner of highways assumes the duties of his position not 
until the mouth of February, yet as the reports for each year 
are closed in December, I have followed the custom heretofore 
pursued of including the full year from January 1st to Decem- 
ber 31st in my report of the doings of this department. 

The receipts and disbursements are as follows : 

Receipts, $22,900.40 

Expenses, ...... 21,198.77 



Balance unexpended, $1,701.63 

It will be seen from the foregoing account of running ex- 
penses, that the total amount expended shows a decrease in this 
department of $2,293.94. The changes which make up this 
difference will be seen from comparison with the report of last 
year, as I have continued the system of sub-divisions inaugurated 
by my predecessor, believing such arrangement to be as simple 
as any method furnishing the same amount of information. 

The division of districts has not been materially changed, and 
the expenses of the "Outside Districts" have been entered as 
heretofore, in such way as to indicate, in some degree, the ex- 
penses in each locality. The " Central District," covering the 
thickly settled portion of the city, also embraces a considerable 
territory in the suburbs, extending across the " Dark Plains" to 
Loudon line, over the " Lower Plains" to Pembroke line, through 
the southern and south-western portions of the city to Bow line, 
past St. Paul's School to Hopkintou Hue, westerly to and around 
the southerly end of Penacook lake, northerly past the State 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 173 

Prison to the railroad crossing, and north-easterly past the Page 
Belting Company's works to the Federal bridge. It will thus he 
seen that there are some forty miles of highways included in the 
k ' Central District," beside the streets in the compact part of the 
city. 

The intention has been to so divide the expenses of this " Cen- 
tral District" under proper headings as to indicate the cost of 
the various works assigned to this department. 

The expenses under the heading of " Bridges and Culverts" 
include the building of new culverts, as well as the repairs of 
old ones, and such expenditures for lumber as has been used in 
the " Central District " in replanking and otherwise repairing 
the many bridges. The amount expended is $531.86, the most 
important items of which relate to the repairs upon Free bridge 
aud the bridge at Richardson's mills on the Soucook river. The 
latter work was a practical rebuilding of the wooden portion of 
the bridge, it being provided with new caps on the piers, new 
stringers, new planks, and new rails — a work rendered necessary 
by the generally decayed condition of the old bridge. The end 
abutment was also built higher, to allow of the raising of the 
approach to the bridge, which, as completed, is admitted a much 
needed improvement, the cost of the whole aggregating $136.83. 

Such repairs as were necessary at Free bridge were made 
under the supervision of that experienced bridge-builder, Mr. 
S. F. Patterson, and included the removal of a portion of the 
abutment caps, and thorough repairs to the ends of the chords, 
which had commenced to settle by reason of the decay of the 
portion resting on the abutment caps. The shingling was also 
sufficiently patched to last for a time longer, and perhaps until 
extended repairs or entire rebuilding may be decided upon. In 
its present condition the bridge is supposed to be entirely safe, 
but the age of the present structure is sufficient evidence that a 
new bridge will have to be provided for in a few years' time. 

A thorough examination of the iron bridges has been made, in 
company with Mr. Whalen, whose long experience in the build- 
ing of iron bridges has rendered him familiar with their require- 
ments. No indications were discovered of any defect, and from 
appearances nothing in the way of repairs will be required for 
some time to come. 



174 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The sums paid out for "Fences and Signs" amount to only 
$105.11. The greater part of the expense for fences comes 
from the need of an occasional coat of paint upon the fences 
which have been required to be erected by the city along the 
tops of abutments and bank walls ; but in the same account is 
included the cost of new fences, and of old fences rebuilt. The 
item of " signs" is not large, but their erection and maintenance 
in all suitable places will continue to be of interest to the pub- 
lic. The most expensive of those erected this season was at the 
junction of Main and West streets, where a substantial granite 
post, provided by the city, has been surmounted by a neat and 
attractive guide-board, furnished by the liberality of Mr. F. H. 
Smith. 

The amount of Macadamizing done during the season has 
been somewhat less than in some years previous, which is ac- 
counted for by the pressure of other work, caused by extensive 
repairs in other sections. There was laid, in all, about four 
thousand yards, covering the territory on State street lying be- 
tween Laurel and Thorndike streets, and on South street between 
Pleasant and Fayette. The management of the stone-crusher 
was attended to by Mr. Horace Hammond and his son, William 
H. Hammond, and the expenses of running the engine were 
reduced to the minimum, though the results accomplished were 
in the highest degree satisfactory. The Macadamized streets, 
though rather expensive in building, evidently give the best sat- 
isfaction to the citizens generally, and when once well built 
require but trifling repairs in a long series of years. The Mac- 
adamizing in our own city has well stood the test of time, 
though it is admitted that a perfect Macadamized street cannot 
be built without the use of the steam road-roller. If this sys- 
tem of street building is to be continued in the future to a greater 
exteut than in the past, as seems probable, there could be little 
risk in procuring such a machine, as, if properly cared for, it 
would remain in good condition for many years, while the cost 
of operating is said to be considerably less than by the use of 
horse-power. This question is referred to at this time because 
it seems that the coming year will offer unusual inducements to 
proceed with the Macadamizing of North Main street. Exten- 
sive repairs upon that street will be imperative, and if, as pro- 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 175 

posed, the grading of Blossom Hill cemetery is proceeded with, 
a large supply of stone suitable for the crusher can be supplied 
at a nominal expense, and with greater convenience than is likely 
ever to occur again. If such an arrangement could be carried out, 
I should recommend that the present block stone paving be con- 
tinued northerly as far as Centre street, thus providing for stone 
paving to the outside limit of the business section, and offering 
opportunity for great improvement in reaching Main street 
from Bridge street. The business interests of that section seem 
to demand the change, and the great amount of heavy teaming 
from Bridge street across the horse railroad tracks would be 
much benefited. 

No block paving has been attempted during the current year, but 
the cobble paving of gutters has been continued, not only for the 
better completion of the streets, but for the protection of those 
streets having considerable slope, from the effects of the spring 
rains and the more violent showers of summer. Paving of this 
character has been laid during the present season on both sides 
of Washington street from Main to State streets, and on the 
south side of Washington street from the Alert hose-house to 
Union street. Similar work has been done on the south side of 
Bridge street, and on the lower side of Freight street. 

The sums charged to "Sidewalks and Crossings" amount 
to $2,135.93, which is somewhat less than last year, owing to 
the smaller amount asked for by petitioners for new sidewalks. 
It is believed that the coming year will perhaps require an in- 
crease of appropriation on this account, as it is expected that 
the entire square on which the government building is located 
will be ready for the construction of new sidewalks. This item 
alone is estimated to cost about $1,200, of which one half would 
require to be borne by the city, besides all the expense of nec- 
essary street crossings. The matter of sanding the sidewalks in 
winter, which is no inconsiderable item, is not entered in this 
account, as it seemed more properly to belong to u Winter Ex- 
pense," and is therefore included under that heading. 

The expense of " Cleaning" the streets has been considerably 
augmented by the numerous showers, which necessitated fre- 
quent removals of sand and dirt from the " catch basins " which 
are scattered through the city. When it is considered that there 



176 CITY OF CONCORD. 

are over six hundred of these necessary adjuncts to our street 
and sewer system, some idea may be obtained of the amount of 
work required. The street-sweeper has been used upon the 
pavements regularly, as heretofore, the sweeper requiring re- 
filling about once in each season at an expense of some $30. 

The " Sprinkling" account includes the amount paid for one 
extra team, in addition to the three sprinklers operated by the 
men and teams from the Central Fire Station. All four of the 
sprinklers owned by the city have been kept in operation during 
the dry weather, but it has been impossible to sprinkle so large 
a territory as to satisfy the citizens of all sections. Many per- 
sons have expressed a willingness to contribute for the services 
of one or more additional sprinklers, but from the limited 
amounts at command, their wishes could not be complied with, 
as the additional expense outside of the services of the present 
city teams is out of all proportion to the amounts which could 
reasonably be collected. The estimated expense for each new 
sprinkler put in service, besides its first cost, is about .$400 per 
annum, while the contributions during the present season have 
averaged less than $230 for each sprinkler. If it were possible 
to include the compact part of the city in a " sprinkling pre- 
cinct," with enough sprinklers to properly supply every portion, 
the expense to be covered in the regular tax-list, it would prob- 
ably give better satisfaction and a more equitable distribution 
of the expense than can be obtained in any other way. 

The " Winter Expense " of $2,373.64 includes such payments 
as are made necessary by the winter season. This item is sub- 
ject to very considerable changes, dependent largely upon the 
amount of snow-fall and the peculiar circumstances incident to 
winter, such as drifting, alternate freezing and thawing, and 
the number of storms. The larger amount of the expense is for 
labor and teams, and owing to the large amount of snow in the 
winter and spring of 1887 the sums used on this accouut were 
considerably above the average ; and though quite as necessary, 
such payments are by no meaus so satisfactory as when applied 
for purposes of a more permanent character. 

All other items of expenditure, which could not well be classi- 
fied under the above headings, are detailed in the statement of 
expenditures under the heading of " General Repairs," though 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 177 

in many instances the explanation indicates the purpose of the 
outlay. It is impracticable to mention in detail the work which 
has been done in the way of general repairs, as each day brings 
its allotted work in keeping the streets and highways in proper 
condition ; and the thousand and one matters which require con- 
stant and unremitting attention assume in the aggregate, as 
represented by dollars and cents, an appearance by no means 
trifling. Among the more ordinary repairs required, the mend- 
ing of streets by a coat of gravel is illustrative of the cost of 
one item which is regular, and which requires repetition every 
few years. For instance, during the season there have been 144 
loads of gravel used on Washington street between State and. Jack- 
son streets ; 152 loads on Bridge street, mostly between the two 
bridges ; 20 loads on Ferry street ; 107 loads on the West Con- 
cord road ; 81 loads on Chapel street, which street was substan- 
tially rebuilt ; 244 loads on Turnpike street between West street 
and the terminus of State street ; 52 loads on Court street ; 174 
loads on Warren, Short, and Merrimack streets ; besides the 
almost innumerable small lots which were required in all direc- 
tions by reason of the numerous showers in July and August. 
In addition to this work of a general character, special work 
has been done at particular points, by reason of circumstances, 
among which may be mentioned the raising and hardening of 
Pleasant street through the valley beyond the asylum. This 
was a work made imperative by the extension of the water pipe 
through that street toward St. Paul's School. The pipe had to 
pass over the culvert spanning the brook, and required a large 
amount of material for a considerable distance, in order to bring 
the roadway a suitable height above the pipe. Similar work 
was also rendered necessary near the Federal bridge on the 
East Concord road, in completing the raising of the highway so 
as to protect it in some degree from the spring freshets. This 
has been accomplished for a distance of some 300 feet, hard- 
ened with gravel, and the sides protected by stone rubble. 
For this purpose there were used 377 loads of filling, 66 loads of 
gravel, and about 40 loads of stone. 

The streets which have been ordered to be built by the board 
of aldermen have also been provided for from the appropriation 
for highways, though it might not always be possible to do so 
12 



178 CITY OF CONCORD. 

without exceeding the amount appropriated. Of such streets a 
considerable outlay has been made in putting Charles street in 
condition ; a larger amount was used in the construction of North 
Essex street, and still more upon Blanchard street. For the 
last two streets a large amount of material had to be drawn, 
there being used upon North Essex street 473 loads, and upon 
Blanchard street no less than 1,037 loads, of filling and gravel. 
There is work of similar purpose to that accomplished near 
Federal bridge which should be attended to between Free bridge 
and "Gully hill," and for economical reasons should be done 
in connection with the removal of the soil on North Main street 
when that street is Macadamized. It will be a work of some 
importance and proportionate expense, but evidently should not 
be much longer delayed. The road should be raised some two 
or three feet from near the easterly end of Free bridge to the 
rising ground near " Gully hill." Suitable filling can be ob- 
tained near by at a nominal cost, the top hardening, however, 
having to be drawn from a long distance, unless, as suggested, 
the excavation required for Macadamizing North Main street be 
utilized for the purpose, as it has been demonstrated to be well 
adapted for such use. Upon that basis a rough estimate of the 
expense would be about as follows : 

4,500 loads filling, delivered, $900.00 

1 double culvert, complete, 200.00 

1,500 loads hardening from No. Main st., delivered, 750.00 

A total of, say, $1,850.00 

The idea is of sufficient importance to warrant your careful 
consideration as among the immediate wants of the future. 
The foregoing recital of work done and work needed, applies, of 
course, to the central district, but some facts mentioned apply 
with equal force to the expenditures in the outside districts. 
The heavy fall of snow last winter caused an outlay proportion- 
ately larger in the outside districts, as did also the numerous 
showers of the past summer, and as all the funds are drawn 
from the same appropriation, the effects are visible in the 
amounts paid out in each district. But little special work has 
been attempted at any point, the ordinary requirements being 
sufficient to demand all the funds provided. 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 179 

The two road machines owned by the city have been in use 
almost constantly when the season would permit, that is, be- 
fore the heat of summer had deprived the soil of the necessary 
adhesiveness to make a good road. Each year increases my 
appreciation of the economy and effectiveness of these ma- 
chines. Under the control of a good road-builder, they will 
not only make better roads, but they will materially lessen the 
cost of repairs in subsequent years, while the satisfaction of the 
public is abundantly attested by the commendatory remarks 
which have reached me from many sources. 

I would recommend the purchase of an additional machine, to 
be permanently located at Penacook, from whence it could be 
used to advantage in several of the surrounding districts. This 
is especially desirable at this time, as the laying of the water 
pipes in the streets of that village will render extensive repairs 
absolutely necessary upon the opening of spring. It is probable 
that other large expenditures in this department will follow the 
introduction of water at Penacook, as a sewerage system will 
naturally follow. If such system should be decided upon, the 
highway department should furnish catch-basins similar to 
those in use in the central district, to provide for the proper 
disposition of surface water, and thus get rid of the old plank 
gutters, which have been so expensive and unsatisfactory. 
This work would cause an expense which would warrant the 
addition of at least $1,000 to the appropriation, for that pur- 
pose alone. 

I have thus alluded briefly to the various matters in connec- 
tion with this department, believing that } 7 our honorable body 
will more fully realize the fact that not a dollar is spent with- 
out the return of its full equivalent, than from the mere perusal 
of the account of receipts and disbursements. 

I return my acknowledgments to the Mayor and the Commit- 
tee on Roads and Bridges for friendly courtesies] and kindly 
suggestions, and hope for the approval of the Council, which 
has honored me with an important trust, which I have endeav- 
ored faithfully to discharge. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES H. ROWELL, 

Commissioner of Highways.

STREET DEPARTMENT. 183 

All the bills for proportions of expense of laying concrete 
during the current year have been full}' collected, as will be 
seen from the foregoing list, which includes also all the bills of 
previous years, which are supposed to be collectible, so that 
there remains nothing to be reported as due upon this account. 

The only item which is due the city from individuals, in con- 
nection with this department, is the sum of $41.75, which is 
due from John B. Giles, of West Concord, being the expense 
incurred in drawing away certain obstructions within the street 
limits, and ordered by the board of alderman to be removed. 

This bill has been presented to Mr. Giles, and, on his refusal 
to pay the same, it has been turned over to the city solicitor for 
collection.

STREET DEPARTMENT. 191 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON SEWERS AND 

DRAINS. 



To the City Council: 

For the year 1887 there was appropriated for the sewerage 
system $2,230, and the committee have expended the sum of 
$2,140.32, a detailed account of which will be found under its 
proper heading in the precinct department of expenditures. 

During the season there has been laid 2,671 feet of new pipe, 
84 feet of old pipe, 264 feet of pipe taken up and relaid, and 
70 feet of brick, making a total of 3,089 feet; and new sewers 
constructed in accordance with petitions presented, as follows: 

Lyndon st., between Franklin and Church, 130 ft. 8-inch pipe. 

Harrod court, 232 " 

City lot, Warren street, . . .120 " 

Between Union and State streets, . . 144 " 

Badger street, 135 " 

Badger street, ..... 430 ft. 10-inch pipe. 
Mills street, between West and Downing, 330 " 

Water street, ..... 194 ft. 12-inch pipe. 
White street to Beacon, across lots, . 1,304 v ' 

Repairing sewer on intervale, . . 70 ft. brick. 

At the time of making the appropriations for the year, it was 
thought, as there was no extraordinary amount required, that the 
sum recommended by the committee would be sufficient ; but the 
demands being larger than anticipated, it has been impossible 
to do all that was required in the petitions presented, find make 
the necessary repairs. It was not thought advisable to author- 
ize an expenditure larger than the appropriation, and therefore 
it became necessary to defer action upon three petitions until 
another year : One, asking for the extension of the sewer from 



192 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Penacook street to a point near the horse railroad station ; one, 
for a drain on South Spring street, running across private 
grounds, — and the committee were of the opinion that this was 
a matter that should properly be referred to the board of health ; 
and also a petition for a sewer in the rear of the residences on 
the east side of South Main street, extending to Chandler street,, 
which would involve quite a large expense. The location of the 
residences in this locality renders it impossible for them to con- 
nect with the sewer in Main street ; and it seems a matter of 
necessity that a sewer should be constructed at an early date, of 
such capacity as will accommodate those requiring it. We 
would suggest that the appropriation for sewerage for the next 
vear be made large enough to cover the expense required to do 
this work. 

The extension of the water precinct, including a large portion 
of West Concord and Penacook, and the introduction of water 
from Penacook lake, have provided these villages with an excel- 
lent opportunity of obtaining a system of sewerage which they 
so much require, and can be obtaiued at a moderate expense. 

An ordinance was passed in September establishing a sewer- 
age precinct for Penacook, including the boundaries of the water 
precinct, and action taken for a survey and for the commence- 
ment of work early the present year. We trust the citizens of 
West Concord may realize the necessity and the advantages to 
be gained, aud early avail themselves of so desirous a privilege. 

Owing to the great number of heav}? showers that visited 
us during the past summer, there have been several complaints 
made on account of water flowing back into cellars. The sewer 
at the north end of Main street seems insufficient to take care 
of the large amount of water running into it at such times, and 
a remedy should be provided the present year. Upon examina- 
tion we think that this can be done without a large outlay, and 
without incurring the expeuse of making a new outlet across the 
intervale. The business portion of Maiu street has also suf- 
fered to some extent in this way. In order to effect a perma- 
nent relief, the large brick sewer running from the river to the 
foot of Depot street would have to be extended to Maiu street, 
and thence up Warren to Spring street. This would be some 
three or four feet lower than at present, but a connection with. 



STREET DEPARTMENT. J 93 

the main sewer could easily be made, and thus give an outlet 
that would be sufficient, and afford a permanent solution of the 
difficulty. This would involve quite an expense; but as it is 
only a question of time before it will have to be done, the com- 
mittee would call it to your thoughtful consideration, and sug- 
gest that an appropriation be made large enough to complete 
part, if not all, of the work the coming season. 

Under the present ordinance, the action of the board of health 
has no doubt increased the number of applications for permits 
to enter the sewers, as during the past season one hundred and 
ten permits have been granted to individuals to connect their 
drains with the public sewers.

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 201 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 

To the City Council: 

The Trustees of the Public Library beg to submit the annual 
reports of the Librarian and Treasurer. 

It will be seen by the report of the Librarian that the number 
of subscribers during the past year has been increased, and that 
the number of volumes taken out is in large excess of any vear 
since the Public Library was opened. "We could point to no bet- 
ter evidence of public favor and appreciation than the fact that 
the circulation of books in 1887 increased to nearly 7,000 vol- 
umes over that of the preceding year. The people of Concord 
expect and demand such liberal appropriations on the part of 
the city government as will enable them to obtain all the litera- 
ture which a popular library ought always to have. With a 
generosity unexcelled, a gentleman and his sister, natives of our 
city, are about to present to Concord a building properly de- 
voted to the uses of a modern library, and we recommend that 
the council take this matter into careful consideration. Such a 
gift as is contemplated carries with it a deep responsibility on 
the part of our city. The usual appropriation will be inadequate 
to maintain a public building like the one in view, and the mu- 
nicipality will be asked to show a liberal disposition when this 
splendid memorial is given into their hands. In nearly every 
city and important town in New England magnificent buildings 
containing free libraries have been established by citizens who 
have the welfare of the community at heart ; and now that our 
own goodly city is to be adorned like her sisters, let those who 



202 CITY OF CONCORD. 

have her interests in charge see to it that so noble a donation 
receive the fullest appreciation. 

In conclusion, we congratulate our people on the newly ac- 
quired interest manifested in the Public Library, and we see no 
reason why it should not continue to grow every year.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 

To the Trustees of the Concord Public Library: 

The Librarian herewith presents his report of the library work 
during the year 1887. 

The library has been open for the delivery of books 285 days r 
during which time 42,341 volumes have been given out, being a 
gain of 6,814 volumes over the number given out in the year 
preceding. 

Deducting the books in the library that are seldom or never 
called for, the whole library has been given out between six and 
seven times over. 

Seven hundred and forty-four books have been purchased, 
and about 125 have been received from the national and state 
authorities and private individuals. 

Eighty-one volumes of pamphlet books have been purchased, 
which supply a class of reading much called for, at a cheap 
rate. 

Sixty-one volumes have been laid aside, being worn out and 
defective, unfit for further use. 

About 1,150 cards are now in constant use, making an aver- 
age of about thirty-six books given out on each, each book being 
kept out on an average between ten and eleven days. 

Volumes 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 of the 
"Courier of New Hampshire," the first newspaper printed in 
Concord, have been secured for the library, also two volumes of 
the " New Hampshire Courier," and three volumes of the 
" Farmer's Monthly Visitor," for which thanks are due to Mrs. 
Arthur Fletcher and to Woodbridge Odlin, Esq. 
Respectfully submitted, 

D. F. SECOMB, Librarian.

212 CITY OF CONCORD. 



REPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council: 

At the commencement of my term of office, the city of Con- 
cord was interested in three legal controversies. The first in 
order of time was the suit of Engel against Concord, which was 
commenced March 5, 1883, and still remains upon the docket. 
The case is referred to Joseph Barnard, of Hopkinton, and will 
be disposed of at the next term of court. 

The suit of Lowell Eastman aganist Concord was settled at 
the April term, 1887, of the supreme court, by the payment of 
$175.16 to the plaintiff. One half of this amount, to wit, 
$87.58, was paid by the city of Concord, and the balance was 
paid by the Page Belting Co. I advised the above settlement, 
believing it was for the best interest of the city. 

The case of School District No. 16 against Concord was de- 
cided at the March, 1887, law term of the supreme court. This 
was a proceeding to determine the title to $1,652.79 which had 
been paid into the city treasury during the last fourteen years 
as taxes assessed for school purposes upon the inhabitants of 
School District No. 16 of Concord. There being no children 
in the district, the money had never been drawn from the city 
treasury. The law of 1885, establishing the " town system" of 
schools, abolished School District No. 16, and the question 
arose as to whom the money belonged. The court decided that 
the school board of the town district of Concord should be ap- 
pointed trustees to draw the money from the city treasury, and 
should refund to the inhabitants of the old district No. 16 the 
equalizing tax assessed on their persons and property under the 
law of 1885, and to apply the balance, after paying the expenses 
of the suit, for the educational use and benefit of the people in- 
habiting the former territory of District No. 16. The money in 
the city treasury has been paid to the school board of the school 
district of Concord, in accordance with the decision of the 
court. 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 213 

On the 21st day of May, 1887, suit was brought against Con- 
cord by Ruel Philbrook, James Knibbs, Marcus P. Norton et als., 
to recover the sum of $30,000 for an alleged infringement of the 
Knibbs patent valve, so called. About the same time similar 
suits were brought by the same parties against the cities of Man- 
chester, Dover, Nashua, and Portsmouth. At a meeting of the 
mayors and solicitors of the above cities, held at Manchester, it 
was unanimously agreed that the cities should uuite in a com- 
mon defence, and that the expense of defending the suits 
should be shared proportionally by all the cities. By a unani- 
mous vote, Hon. William L. Foster was elected as counsel for 
the combined cities. The suits are now pending in the United 
States circuit court. The first question to be determined is the 
validity of the release which was given to Concord and the other 
cities by Norton et als. in 1883. The parties who represent 
Norton in the present suits claim that the release was obtained 
by fraud, and that the consideration of the release has failed. 
It has been agreed that the question of the validity of the release 
shall be tried before Judge Colt, without a jury. If the cities 
prevail upon this point, as I believe they will, it will end the 
suit. If the decision on the validity of the release is adverse to 
the cities, then the whole question as to the alleged infringement 
of the patent by the cities will have to be tried again. There 
seems to be little doubt but that the cities will prevail in the end. 

At the last term of the supreme court for this county, a suit 
was brought against Concord by Joseph B. Walker to recover 
the sum of $500 for damages alleged to have been caused by 
the improper construction of a sewer, thereby causing the water 
therein to flow back into Mr. Walker's cellar, and filling the 
same with filthy water. The case has been continued to the 
next April term of the supreme court, when it will be dis- 
posed of.

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE FOR 
THE IMPROVEMENT OF BLOSSOM HILL CEM- 
ETERY. 



The following ordinance was passed May 16, 1887: 

CITY OF CONCORD. 
In the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighty-seven. 

AN ORDINANCE in relation to the improvement of Blossom Hill Cem- 
etery, providing a Special Committee and denning its duties. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of Concord, as follows : 

Section 1. The contemplated improvements at Blossom Hill Ceme- 
tery shall be made under the direction of a special committee composed 
of twelve persons, as follows : 

The mayor. 

Two members of the board of aldermen ; two members of the common 
council, to be appointed by the mayor. 

One member of the board of cemetery trustees, to be chosen by said 
board of cemetery trustees. 

And six citizen tax-payers or lot-owners, to be recommended by the 
lot-owners in said cemetery, and confirmed by the city council. 

Sec. 2. Said committee shall serve (without compensation) for a term 
of three years, and such time thereafter until their successors shall be 
elected by the city council, and said committee (of which a majority shall 
constitute a quorum) shall have full power to fill any vacancies that may 
arise, by a majority vote of said committee. 

Sec. 3. Upon the passage of this ordinance the mayor shall call a 
meeting (by notice in the daily press) of the lot-owners in said cemetery, 
to meet within ten days, to select the six members of the committee be- 
fore mentioned; and said general committee shall, within fifteen days 
after their election, meet, and organize by the choice of a chairman, a sec- 
retary or clerk, a financial agent or treasurer, and an executive sub-com- 
mittee, and adopt such rules or by-laws as may be necessary. 

Sec. 4. Said committee shall have full power and direction in the ex- 
penditure of the special appropriations made by the city for said work, 
and shall report to the city council at the close of each fiscal year, and 
oftener if required, all details of expenditure, work completed and con- 
templated. 

Sec. 5. This ordinance shall take effect upon its passage, and any or- 
dinance or parts of ordinances inconsistent with this ordinance are hereby 
repealed. 

Under the provisions of the foregoing ordinance, a committee

15 



226 CITT OF CONCORD. 

Mayor John E. Robertson. 
Aldermen George O. Dickerman, 

John C. Ordway. 
Councilmen Frank J. Batchelder, 
Josiah E. Dwight, 

James H. Chase (representing Cemetery Committee), 
Joseph B. Walker, 
Samuel S. Kimball, 
Gustavus Walker, 
William F. Thayer, 
Edson J. Hill, 
Gardner B. Emmons. 
The last six, representing the lot-owners in said cemetery, 
were chosen at a meeting called by the mayor and held in the 
City Hall, May 27, 1887, and confirmed by the City Council, 
June 25, 1887. 

The committee organized as follows : 

John E. Robertson, Chairman. 

John C. Ordway, Secretary. 

Wm. F. Thayer, Treasurer. 

Jos. B. Walker, S. S. Kimball, J. H. Chase, 

Executive Committee. 

Several meetings of the committee have been held, the na- 
ture of the improvements to be made discussed, and a substan- 
tial agreement reached that the front and approaches should be 
first improved. The merits of a wrought iron fence and stone 
wall were discussed at length. 

Mr. Charles Elliott, of Boston, a landscape artist, was pres- 
ent at one meeting, and offered the committee valuable sugges- 
tions. A front stone wall three feet high was finally agreed 
upon as the first work to be done ; and the committee, after ad- 
vertising for proposals, were authorized to contract for one 
thousand running feet of same, to be laid the coming season. 
A contract was made with R. McDonald for $3,968.30. The 
executive committee were also authorized to dispose of the old 
wall, and to contract for the necessary grading. 

No considerable amount of the appropriation of $3,000 made 
the present year has been as yet expended. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN C. ORDWAY, 

Secretary of Committee.

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 227 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 



To His Honor the Mayor and Gentlemen of the City Council: 

I have the honor herewith to submit to you the annual report 
of the Fire Department for the year ending December 31, 1887. 
During the year the Precinct Department has responded to 
twelve box alarms, two of which have been for fires out of 
town, viz., Lebanon and Suncook, both occurring May 10th, 
and one for a fire near the new prison. Steamer 3 of Penaeook 
has responded to three alarms, one of which was on the Bos- 
cawen side of the river. Engine 2 of East Concord has re- 
sponded to three alarms, two of the fires in that ward being 
farm buildings, and located beyond the reach of water. En- 
gine 3 of West Concord has responded to three alarms, at only 
one of which they played any water. There have been ten 
tk still" alarms, caused by chimney fires, where, in a majority 
of cases, help has been summoned from the Central Fire Sta- 
tion. I am pleased to report that no serious fires have oc- 
curred, the promptness and efficiency of the Department, backed 
by good apparatus and plenty of water, having in every in- 
stance kept the fire confined to the buildings in which they 
originated. 

You will see, by referring to the recapitulation, that our losses 
have been larger than last year, yet they are unusually small 
for a city of the size of Concord, and will compare favorably 
with our small fire loss for the past ten years. In view of the 
fact that the year 1887 has been a noted one for large fires, we 
have every reason to congratulate ourselves on our escape from 
any destructive fires. 

EXPENSES. 

The cost of maintaining the Department the past year has 
been as follows, viz. :

HOUSES. 



The buildings occupied for Fire Department purposes are 
generally in excellent condition. The house at Penacook needs 
painting. The house at West Concord is totally unfit for the 
purpose. There is not room enough for the apparatus, and no 
convenience for drying hose. I trust that another year will not 
pass without some action being taken in this matter. I would 
also renew my recommendation of last year that a furnace be 
put into the house of Hose 3. 



APPARATUS. 

The apparatus belonging to the Department is all in excel- 
lent condition. There have been purchased daring the year three 
hose sleighs, and the sled for the Hook and Ladder Company has 
been remodelled and painted. The hose sleighs have been put in 
charge of Kearsarge Steamer and Hose Company No. 2, Eagle 
Hose Company No. 1, and Good-Will Hose Company No. 3. The 
hose sleigh formerly used by Hose 3 has been transferred to En- 
gine 3 at West Concord, it being much lighter and easier hauled by 
hand. The Gov. Hill two-wheeled hose reel has also been trans- 
ferred to West Concord. The whole Department, with the 
exception of East Concord, is now supplied with hose sleighs, 
which is a great improvement over the old method of dragging 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 233 

the heavy carriages through the snow, as it enables the compa- 
nies to make much quicker time to fires, and is a great saving 
in horse-flesh. 

HOSE. 

During the past year there has been purchased for the use of 
the Department 2,000 feet of fabric hose, "Paragon" brand. 
We have now on hand 5,500 feet fabric hose, in excellent condi- 
tion, and 3,100 feet leather hose, in fair condition for hand- 
engine and hydrant service, but not reliable for heavy pressure. 
This is an ample supply for the present. 

FIRE ALARM. 

The great value of this branch of the service becomes more 
apparent each year. The saving of loss by fire and water by 
the prompt summons of the firemen is inestimable. Supt. E. F. 
Richardson has been unremitting in his efforts to keep every- 
thing pertaining to his department in excellent condition. One 
new private box has been put in during the year, viz., box 8, 
located at the Page Belting Company's works. A floor has been 
laid, and other needed repairs made in the battery- room. Two 
tappers, one box, and the magnet on the striker, at the house of 
Hose 3, were burned out by lightning during the summer. Some 
trouble has been experienced by other wires coming in contact 
with those of the Department. Great care should be taken in put- 
ting up electric light wires, in order that they may not interfere 
with the fire alarm wires. One wire has already been burnt off 
from coming in contact with them. This is a serious matter, 
and should be closely looked after, for there is great danger of 
burning out the signal boxes, and thus rendering the alarm use- 
less for considerable time. The agitation in our larger cities of 
placing all wires under ground has amounted to little more than 
talk so far. I think it would be well for the City Council to 
take this matter into consideration, especially in regard to the 
electric light wire, before they grant leave to extend the system 
much farther. More or less trouble has been experienced by 
the moving of buildings through the streets where the wires are 
strung. Permission ought not to be granted to any one to move 
buildings unless they are willing to assume all responsibility for 



234 CITY OF CONCORD. 

damage, and expense of cutting wires, etc. One bill has al- 
ready been presented to the city for damages from this source. 

HYDRANTS. 

The extension of the water-supply to West Concord, Pena- 
cook, and St. Paul's School will give those localities an abun- 
dant supply of water for fire purposes. There have been 46 
hydrants added during the year, making a total of 159 public 
and 22 private hydrants now in use. 

HORSES. 

It is not expected that horses used for the Department 
and also by the Street Department can always be kept at 
the stable in the day-time, or even in the immediate vicinity, 
but the practice of allowing a pair of horses to be as far away 
as West or Washington street is exceedingly dangerous. For 
instance, when the alarm was rung in from box 35, August 
19th, the horses used in the P2agle and Kearsarge Hose carriages 
were nearly down to West street with a sprinkler full of water, 
and the other two pairs were on Main street near the Opera 
House. The result was, that Hose 2 and 3, from the North 
and South End, arrived at the fire before any of the apparatus 
from the Central Station ; and when the hose-carriage horses 
got to the station they were nearly winded, and in no condition 
to get the apparatus to the fire promptly. Horses from the 
Central Station should not be allowed to go below Cross or 
above Court street with a sprinkler. 

RECOMMENDATIONS . 

I take this occasion to repeat the recommendation made in 
my last report for a bell for fire alarm purposes to be located at 
the north part of the city. We have a bell striker located in 
the tower of the Methodist church, that is practically of no use 
on account of the bell being broken. It is dangerous to let this 
state of things exist longer. I would also renew my recom- 
mendation to furnish the Department with rubber covers for the 
protection of property from loss by water. They could have 
been used to advantage twice during the past year. The De- 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 235 

partment should also be furnished with one or two fire extin- 
guishers for use at chimney fires, etc. What the Department 
needs is a hose wagon, constructed so as to carry rubber covers 
and two extinguishers in addition to the hose, to be kept at the 
Central Station, and the lightest four-wheeled hose carriage 
transferred to West Concord. 

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. 

In conclusion, I desire to return to the Assistant Engineers, 
and the officers and members of the different companies, my 
sincere thanks for the prompt and cheerful manner in which 
they have obeyed all orders, their earnest, intelligent, and per- 
sistent efforts to protect the property of our citizens from 
destruction, and to maintain the well earned reputation of 
our Department as an efficient organization. His Honor the 
Mayor is entitled to the thanks of the Department for his uni- 
form courtesy and kindly interest in their welfare. The mem- 
bers of the Fire Committee, who have looked closely after the 
interest of the Department, the City Marshal and members of 
the police force, for their support, will also accept my thanks. 
To Torrent Engine Company, No. 1, of Boscawen, the citizens 
of Ward One are under great obligations for their ever prompt 
response to the call for aid.

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 attached 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 
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 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 
company may attach a second line of hose from such hydrant 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 com- 
mands during all such service. 

Art. 6. No company, while returning from a fire, will be allowed to 
proceed faster than a walk, and it must at all times 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 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 245 

casualty 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 engineer shall be 
promptly obeyed. 



RULES FOR DRIVERS. 

The drivers shall be required to occupy sleeping apartments in the 
Central Station, each being allowed two nights off each week, from 9 
o'clock p. m. to 6 o'clock a. m., upon particular nights to be designated 
by the steward. 

They shall be at or near the station at all times, except when employed 
by the superintendent of streets or absent by permission of the steward 
or an engineer, and shall perform such duties as the steward or chief 
engineer may direct. 

They shall groom and take proper and trusty care of their horses ; 
shall keep the stables clean, and the harnesses and all things pertaining 
to their department in order ; shall have the horses harnessed as directed, 
and not leave the station without everything in readiness for immediate 
service ; shall exercise their horses when required by the steward or chief 
engineer, and practise care and economy in feeding and general manage- 
ment. 

In case of fire, the drivers shall be subject to the orders of any engi- 
neer.

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 247 



FIRE-ALARM SIGNALS. 



1. Alarms rung in from boxes 41, 42, 43, 45, 46, and 47 will not be 
responded to by the Alert Hose until signalled. The signal to proceed 
to the fire will be a second alarm ; the signal of dismissal, three strokes of 
the bells. 

2. Alarms rung in from boxes 8, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 23 will not be 
responded to by Good-Will Hose until signalled. They will be governed 
by the same signals as the Alert Hose. 

3. Eleven consecutive strokes of the bells, following any regular box 
alarm, or during any fire, is a call for the relief steamer (Gov. Hill), 
and will be responded to by Eagle Hose, which has that steamer in 
charge. The relief steamer will, however, respond to the first alarm 
from Box 7 (N. H. Asylum for the Insane) without special call. 

4. Two rounds of each eleven strokes of the bells, with an intermission 
of one minute between the rounds, without any regular box alarm, will 
signalize the requirement of a steamer from outside the Precinct, and 
will be responded to by Kearsarge and Eagle Hose companies alone. 
In case further aid is necessary, the box-alarm 34 (Central Station) will 
follow. 

(These rounds of eleven strokes, which are signals for the relief 
steamer, or a call from out of town, must not be confounded with an 
alarm from private boxes 5, 6, 7, or 8.) 

From the above, it will be seen that the companies are subject to calls 
as follows : 

Alarms rung in from box 8 will be responded to by Kearsarge 
Steamer and Hose, Alert Hose, and Hook and Ladder. When followed 
by eleven consecutive strokes, Eagle Hose Company will respond with 
Steamer Gov. Hill only. 

Steamer Kearsarge and Hose — To all calls except the relief steamer. 

Eagle Hose — To all calls, excepting box 8, including the relief. 

Hook and Ladder — To box alarms only. 

Alert Hose — To box alarms only above Pleasant street, and upon 
second alarm to boxes below. 

Good-Will Hose — To box alarms only below Centre street, and upon 
second alarm to boxes above, excepting box 8. 

The signal for dismissal (three strokes) is used only for the purpose of 
notifying the companies not on duty that their services are not required, 
and does not imply that the fire is out, or that the companies on duty are 
dismissed. 



248 



CITY OF CONCORD. 



TESTING SIGNALS. 

For the purpose of testing the condition and accuracy of the fire-alarm 
telegraph, a box alarm will be rung in every Monday afternoon at 4 : 30 
o'clock precisely. It will be one single round only, indicating bv the 
strokes on the bells the number of the box ; and the box will then be cut 
out, and no additional round sounded. The boxes used for this purpose 
will vary each week, alternating in the circuits. 

Upon each other week-day a single blow upon the bell will be struck 
from the button of a box, alternating as before mentioned. 



THE FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH 

Is the " Gamewell " patent. It embraces fifteen miles of wires on the 
main lines, and seven miles of extension wires for call-bells. 

On the main line are twenty-five fire-alarm boxes belonging to the city, 
and four private boxes, — in all, twenty-nine. There are three alarm 
bells, — two of 2,000 pounds each (American steel), and one of 1,000 
pounds (bell metal), with a tower striker to each. There are also one 
engine-house gong, four mechanical tappers, one four-circuit repeater, 
and three indicators. 

On the extension line are twenty-three call-bells. 

The battery consists of eighty cups for the main line, and five cups for 
the extension. 

The alarm was put up in 1880 by Edwin Rogers, 27 Federal street, 
Boston, Mass.

THE MAYOR'S ADDRESS. 



Gentlemen of the City Council : I hardly know if it 
has been the custom, since the introduction of biennial elec- 
tions, to present an address at the beginning of a new year ; 
yet I think we may, with propriety, briefly review our ac- 
tions of the past year, and consider some of the most impor- 
tant matters that will require our attention, trusting that 
our experience of the past will prove advantageous for the 
future. 

Every member of the city government should be thor- 
oughly acquainted, so far as possible, with the receipts, 
expenditures, and standing of the several departments. To 
act understandingly, and manage judiciously the affairs of 
the city, it is necessary that we should know its

Increase of city and precinct debt for the year, $27,641.84 



The increase of the precinct debt of $49,637.50 is due to 
the extension of the Water-Works to Millville, West Con- 
cord, and Penacook. This can hardly be termed, an 
increase of indebtedness, as our water-system is self-sup-

porting ; and unless some unforeseen calamity takes place, 
it will eventually provide for the payment of its debt. 
During the past year there has been paid

It is desirable to lessen the tax-rate and lighten the bur- 
dens of all as much as possible, yet we must provide for the 
payment of the city's obligations as they become due, and 
also the necessary amounts for running expenses. Appro- 
priations should be made for the payment of

Our highways need constant care and attention to keep 
them in a comparatively safe condition. The heavy show- 
ers during the past season have occasioned a large outlay 



252 CITY OF CONCORD. 

of money upon the roads out of town ; but they are in a 
very good condition, and better, I believe, than many of 
our streets in the city. The money appropriated for this 
purpose has been judiciously expended. The calls for 
repairs, improvements, and laying out of new streets, dur- 
ing the year, are constant, and often perplexing to the 
commissioner. To know just how much can be expended 
in any particular locality, and what repairs to make with- 
out exceeding the appropriation, requires excellent judg- 
ment. To please all is an impossibility, yet I believe care 
has been taken, and an earnest endeavor made, to give sat- 
isfaction. 

Your attention is called to the report of the commissioner 
and the recommendations made by him. That portion of 
Main street from Bridge to Centre should be paved the 
present season. 

The question of raising the grade of the road from the 
foot of " Gully hill " to the bridge is also a matter for your 
consideration. If this is contemplated, it would seem that 
it should be done at the time of paving Main street, on 
account of obtaining the hardening for the top of the 
grade, which would lessen the expense quite materially. 
One obstacle presents itself to this improvement, that is, 
by raising the grade of the road upon the east side of the 
bridge, would it not cause the water, during freshets, to 
flow back and find an outlet upon the west side ? It might 
occasion the necessity for raising the grade on the west 
side from the bridge to a point near the shoe factory. This 
would be an improvement appreciated by the public gen- 
erally. Main street, from Court to Fisk street, requires at- 
tention ; and it is suggested that improvements be com- 
menced, and that a portion if not all the street within 
those limits be Macadamized the present season. If it is 
deemed advisable to make any of the proposed improve- 



mayor's address. 253 

ments, the appropriations should be made sufficiently large 
to cover the expense. 

STREET SPRINKLING. 

Considerable dissatisfaction has been expressed by some 
of our citizens in regard to the sprinkling of streets; and in 
this connection I would like to call the attention of the 
council to the following extract from the report of the com- 
missioner of highways : 

" The ' sprinkling ' account includes the amount paid for 
one extra team, in addition to the three sprinklers operated 
by the men and teams from the Central Fire Station. All 
four of the sprinklers owned by the city have been kept in 
operation during the dry weather, but it has been impossi- 
ble to sprinkle so large a territory as to satisfy the citizens 
of all sections. Many persons have expressed a willingness 
to contribute for the services of one or more additional 
sprinklers; but from the limited amounts at command 
their wishes could not be complied with, as the additional 
expense, outside of the services of the present city teams, 
is out of all proportion to the amounts which could reason- 
ably be collected. The estimated expense for each new 
sprinkler put in service, besides its first cost, is about $400 
per annum, while the contributions during the present sea- 
son have averaged less than $ 230 for each sprinkler. If it 
were possible to include the compact part of the city in a 
'sprinkling precinct,' with enough sprinklers to properly 
supply every portion, the expense to be covered in the reg- 
ular tax-list, it would probably give better satisfaction and 
a more equitable distribution of the expense than can be 
obtained in any other way."

That we have a good and efficient service is conceded by 
all. The officers and members are all men of intelligence 
and experience, and have demonstrated that they are ready 
and willing at all times to perform their duty fearlessly 
and faithfully. The apparatus pertaining to the depart- 
ment is in excellent order, and will not require any extra 
expense during the coming year. The buildings are in 
good repair, with the exception of the house at Penacook, 
which should be repainted. A petition has been presented 
for a new engine-house at West Concord. The build- 
ing now used for that purpose, and for a ward room, has 
heen built a long time, and is not large enough to accommo- 
date the present wants of the community. Should you de- 
cide to grant the prayer of the petitioners, an amount suffi- 
cient for the purpose should be appropriated. Although we 
have an excellent service and fire alarm, I think the city is 
deficient in alarm bells. The bell at the north end, being 
cracked, is practically of but little use. If no arrangement 
can be made to have it replaced, a new one should be locat- 
ed in that neighborhood. A bell is also needed near the 
central part of the business portion of Main street. At 
present it is very difficult to distinguish the number of the 
alarm in that vicinity, through the noise of traffic, and also 
when heavy winds prevail.

mayor's address. 255 

During the past year the force has been increased by the 
addition of one day police, at an expense of $800 per year; 
and I believe this action upon the part of the city council 
has received the approbation of the entire community. 
Good and efficient work has been done by this officer. 
Nearly $265 has been expended for purchasing uniforms 
for the officers, and other supplies which the department 
required. These articles have been charged to the city 
marshal, and are by him charged to the officers receiving 
them. 

Your attention is again called to the " lobby " on Warren 
street. This building was erected merely for temporary 
use some years ago, and in its present condition is not a 
suitable place in which to confine human beings. If it is 
deemed inexpedient to take further action in regard to a 
new city building, I would again recommend that a struct- 
ure of moderate cost be built on the lot on Warren street, 
that would provide better accommodations for a lobby, the 
city marshal's office, police court-rooms, etc. 

SCHOOLS. 

The expense for the support of the schools for the past 
year has been $40,838.68. The management of this impor- 
tant department, in which we are all so deeply interested, 
lies not with us, but with an independent board of educa- 
tion, elected by the people. Our duty is to provide such 
means as are required by law, while such additional amounts 
as are deemed necessary are raised by vote of districts. We 
can cheerfully commend the interests of our children to 
the care of our committee, knowing that their fidelity to 
the trusts imposed upon them cannot fail of producing ben- 
eficial results, and that the money so willingly appropriated 
will be judiciously expended. 



256 CITY OF CONCORD. 

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

The annual appropriation of $2,200 for the Public Library- 
is money worthily bestowed, and could not be expended 
for a better purpose. From the reports of the trustees and 
librarian, it will be seen that the care and business con- 
nected with it are constantly increasing. Its importance 
is appreciated more and more each year. It may not be 
wrong to anticipate coming events, and refer with grati- 
tude to the time when better accommodations will be 
obtained. 

CITY HOSPITAL. 

The City Hospital is an institution in which our citizens 
have a deep interest. I think our recent visit to that place 
convinced us all that we were justified in increasing the 
annual appropriation to $1,200. 

LIGHTING STREETS. 

The appropriation for this purpose in 1887 was for 

Gas lights, S3, 500. 00 

Electric lights, 1,500.00 



$5,000.00 
Amount expended, ...... 4,686.47 



Surplus, ........ $313.53 

To this department your special attention is called. It is 
necessary that our streets should be well lighted. This is an 
expense we cannot avoid. During the past year two elec- 
tric lights have been added, so that now we have seventeen. 
There are petitions for three more awaiting your action, 
and I understand that requests for others are to be made. 
The demand for these lights is increasing ; but it must be 
remembered that they are an expensive luxury, and it is a 



MAYORS ADDRESS. 257 

matter for your consideration as to what extent you are 
willing to increase the expense in this direction. The con- 
tract with the Gas Co. has continued for a long time ; and 
I think it would be advisable that a new one should be 
made, and the time for burning the gas-lights be extended 
an hour longer than at present. 

CEMETERIES. 

The appropriation of $3,000 for Blossom Hill has been 
paid over to the treasurer of the special committee appoint- 
ed to make the proposed improvements. No work has yet 
been done, owing to the delay in perfecting plans ; but 
contracts have been awarded, and operations will be com- 
menced early in the season. In order to carry out the 
improvements suggested, it will be necessary to appropriate 
the same amount the present year. 

SEWERS AND DRAINS. 

The expenditures have been $2,236.54, and 3,089 feet of 
new sewer pipe has been laid. There are several matters 
in connection with this department that will require atten- 
tion the coming year, and an additional amount for the ap- 
propriation will be required. Your attention is called to 
the forthcoming report of the committee, and to the rec- 
ommendations made by them. 

BOARD OF HEALTH. 

Under the ordinance passed by the City Council in March 
last, a new Board of Health was organized, enlarging their 
powers and duties, and an appropriation of $500 made for 
their use. Of this amount there has been expended $479.80. 
This amount does not include the total expense of the 
board, as the item of office rent of $50, and a portion of the 
17 



258 CITY OF CONCORD. 

expense of printing, are included in the items of general 
expenses. The action of the council in establishing this 
Board of Health has met with public favor ; and the results 
of their labor, if continued, must be beneficial both to the 
health and the cleanliness of our city. There are many 
valuable suggestions contained in their report, which should 
receive your consideration. 

OUR POOR. 

The appropriation for the support of the poor in 1887 
was $2,000, and the expense has been $3,112.76 — an excess 
of $1,112.76. That this department is well managed, the 
wants of the unfortunates humanely considered, and the 
efficiency of the officers unquestionable, there can be no 
doubt. It is our duty to provide for the poor ; and an ex- 
amination will satisfy you that the cares and expenses in 
this direction are increasing yearly. 

I have endeavored to lay before you briefly the expendi- 
tures and necessities of the more important departments. 
In looking back, it seems at a first glance that our city ex- 
penses have been large, but as we reflect a moment, we 
can see how, as improvements are made, more money 
must be used ; and we cannot, surely, with all due regard 
to economy, allow our city to fall behind in the progress of 
the day. I have no doubt that your discretion and sound 
judgment will dictate such action as will promote the best 

interests of all.
