REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



To the City Council : 

The receipts aud expenditures on account of tiie Water-Works 

during the past fiscal year, appear in the foregoing report of the 

superintendent. 

The receipts exceed those of the previous year by the sum of 

§4, 393. 80. 

This excess is accounted for as follows : 

Eeceived for use of hydrants in excess 

of what was received the previous year, $1,420.00 

Received for water upon the extension 

to Millville, 304.50 

Received for water upon the extension 

to Penacook, ..... 1,007.94 

Nearly all the balance has resulted from 
an increased consumption in the com- 
pact part of the city, .... 1,001.36 

$4,393.80 

Although ten miles of main aud distribution pipes, and nearly 
two hundred service pipes, have been added to the works within 
the past two years, and the number of families which patronize 
the works has increased from 2,304 to 2,675, the expenses of 
management and repairs have increased but sliglitly. The in- 
crease over the preceding year is S285.42, and over the average 
of the five preceding years, $352.39. These expenses certainly 
have not increased in proportion to the increase of the works 
and the number of persons whom they serve. 

The smallness of the expenses for repairs attests to the thor- 
oughness with which the works were originally constructed, and 
the good character of the pipe aud other appliances in use. 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 107 

Only eleven leaks have occurred during the year. These were 
all in the distribution pipes except one, which was on the 14-in. 
main in High street, in West Concord village. Considering the 
fact that we have forty-two miles of pipe, and that the works 
have been in use sixteen years, we regard this as a very small 
number of leaks. Leaks will occur, whatever kind of pipe is 
used. 

There is no present necessit}^ for further extensions of any 
considerable magnitude. Slight changes and extensions will be 
required from year to 3'ear, to perfect the works. We see no 
reason why the ordinary income will not be sufficient to pay for 
these additions, and also pay the temporary indebtedness now 
outstanding, growing out of the recent extensions. This indebt- 
edness amounts to the sum of $7,000, and is represented by the 
notes of the city. The permanent indebtedness of the city was 
increased $40,000 by the extensions to Millville and Penacook 
and the incidents thereto, and it is I'epresented by bonds of the 
city bearing 4 per cent, interest, and maturing in the years 1896, 
'7, '8, and '9. 

It affords us pleasure to bear witness to the faithful, intelli- 
gent, prompt, and efficient manner in which the superintendent 
performs the duties assigned to him. We also tender our 
acknowledgments to the city council for the confidence that 
has been imposed in us, and the cordial cooperation and aid we 
have had from them in all the official duties we have been re- 
quired to perform. Without this confidence, cooperation, and 
aid, the Water- Works could not have been brought to their pres- 
ent state of usefulness.

STREET DEPARTMENT. 



KEPOET OF THE C0MMISSI0:N^ER OF 
HIGHWAYS. 



To the City Council: 

The Commissiouer of Highways herewith submits his annual 
report, covering the year 1888, from January 1st to December 
31st. 

The receipts and disbursements are as follows : 

Receipts $26,876.16 

Expenditures, 28,284.06 



Expenditures in excess of receipts, , . . $1,407.90 

It will be seen that the total amount expended during the 
year aggregates $28,284.06, an increase over last year of 
$7,085.29. 

This is an apparent increase above the ordinary requirements 
of the department of a very considerable sum, which, without 
explanation, would indicate an enlargement beyond the natural 
increase of a single year, though the amount overdrawn is less 
by nearly $300 than was turned back into the treasury from the 
appropriation of last year. 

An examination of the account in detail will show that a 
large part of this sum arises from extraordinary circumstances, 
the increase being practically distributed in the accounts, some- 
what as follows : 

The sum of $2,146.37 was expended in building the massive 
stone wall and culvert near the entrance to Blossom Hill Ceme- 
tery, and was rendered imperatively necessary by the change of 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 115 

location in the higliway at tliat point. The expense, of course, 
is no larger than if a separate appropriation had been made for 
that purpose, but it was deemed best to have the work proceed 
under the direction of the commissioner, and the items included 
in his account, though it will readily be understood that it is 
outside of the purpose of the general appropriation. 

The amount expended for the construction of new sidewalks 
shows an increase of $1,153.48, which is largely accounted for 
by the necessity of concreting, in a single season, the sidewalks 
of the entire square occupied by the government building. 

Another very considerable increase is in the item of " Winter 
Expense," which shows a total expenditure in the " Central 
District" alone of nearly $1,400.00 more than in the previous 
year. The additional expense caused in the outside districts, 
owing to the severity of the storms of January and March, 
1888, will account for all the increase beyond the ordinary re- 
quirements of growth. The items in detail, which vary from 
the preceding year, can be seen by comparison, as the system 
of subdivisions has been continued as heretofore. The only 
changes of moment in this regard consist in the merging of 
what has heretofore been known as " East Sewall's Falls Dis- 
trict " with the "North Concord District," and the detailed ex- 
penditures are given under the heading of the latter district ; 
and a similar consolidation has been made of the " Borough 
District" with the "• Penacook District." 

Both of these changes were brought about by circumstances 
which seemed to render such consolidations desirable, though 
they need not be considered as permanent if it should be here- 
after thought proper to divide them as before. 

The expenses of the "Central District" have been subdivided 
under the same headings as last year, the expense attending the 
building of the bank wall above referred to only being added. 

The expenditures for "Bridges and Culverts" amount to 
$547.33, and include all the repairs which could properly be 
chargeable to the bridges and culverts in the " Central District," 
and also the lighting of Free bridge and the Lower bridge. In 
this connection it seems proper that I should call your attention 
to the necessity of providing a new bridge to replace the Free 
bridge, which cannot longer be repaired with economy. 



116 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Although there seems to be no question of its present safety, 
yet the i)assage of years is beginning to show its effect, P2ach 
year shows a slight settling of the structure upon its bearings, 
necessitating constant watchfulness to provide for the replacing 
of old timber with new, at the least sign of weakness. The 
erection of a new bridge, whether of wood or iron, would re- 
quire a considerable time, and it would undoubtedly be a wise 
foresight to place the matter in charge of a committee at once, 
in order that if action is decided upon for the present season 
such appropriation as may be necessary can be provided. In 
the outside districts, such repairs as have seemed to be needed 
have been made in different sections, the expenses of the same 
being included in the amounts given under the headings of the 
several districts. The largest amounts expended for this pur- 
pose have been in the Horse Hill district, the North Concord 
district, and the Penacook Intervale district, where considera- 
ble sums were required. The Horse Hill bridge is an open 
bridge, and consequently decays more rapidh' than if it were 
possible to protect it from the alternations of wet and drouth. 
The ends of the chords were so badly affected that they required 
to be entirely replaced by new timber, as did also the wall 
plates, and much of the planking. Even now its condition is 
not such that it can be expected to remain secure for a long 
period, and considerable repairs in other parts of the bridge 
will be needed in the near future. In the Penacook Intervale 
district the bridge had become so impaired by age and decay 
that it was deemed best to rebuild the entire structure. Owing 
to the scarcity of stone in that section, the abutments, as well 
as the bridge itself, were made entirely of chestnut lumber, 
and the result proves very satisfactory. It is now a substantial 
and well built bridge, and may be considered sufficient for the 
requirements of that locality for many years toTcome. 

The bridge in the North Concord district, near Farnum's 
mill, was also thoroughly repaired early in the season, its con- 
dition demanding almost the entire rebuilding of the same. This 
is now, as well as most of the bridges in the outside'districts, in 
excellent condition, and no large expenditure will probably be 
required upon them during the coming year. The Twin bridge 
and the Borough bridge should soon be shingled, and it would 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 117 

undoubtedly be good ecouoniy to have the same attended to dur- 
the next season. 

The amount paid out for "Fences and Signs" aggregates 
$128.56, a slight increase from last year. Most of this outlay 
has been for the keeping in good repair, and well painted, the 
fences heretofore erected, and the procuring of guideboards for 
such points as had not been before provided for. The principal 
new work under this heading was the erection of the substan- 
tial fence along the abutment wall opposite the cemetery en- 
trance. 

The "Macadamizing" account shows an expenditure of 
$1,611.80 — an increase of some $600 over last year. This is ac- 
counted for by the additional amount of work done by this 
method, the actual cost per square yard being about in propor- 
tion to that recently done heretofore. The west side of North 
Main street, from Centre street to Washington street, has been 
fully completed, in doing which nearly one thousand two-horse 
loads of broken stone from the crusher have been used. The 
material excavated for the purpose of Macadamizing has been 
fully utilized, and if its value were to be computed on a basis 
of cost of material obtained elsewhere, it would considerably 
reduce the amount charged to Macadamizing. Enough of this 
excavated material has been obtained to re-gravel Maple street 
its full length. Prince street from Green to Spring street. Rum- 
ford street between School and Warren, Perley street from 
Main to State street, and Main street from Perley to West 
street, besides a long piece on Bridge street and Gully hill. 

A large amount of work similar in character to Macadamizing 
has been accomplished by the use of stone chips from the va- 
rious stone-sheds in the outskirts of the city. Although not so 
well adapted for a smooth and permanent street as the more uni- 
form angular pieces supplied by the stone-crusher, yet from mo- 
tives of economy they have been extensively used in some lo- 
calities, and have given good satisfaction. That part of Bridge 
street lying between Main street and the railroad bridge has been 
entirely rebuilt with this material, as has also South State street 
between Laurel and Perley streets ; and at various points on the 
West Concord road, it has been found to be more durable than 
gravel, so that it has been extensively used at sundry points on 



118 CITY OF CONCORD. 

that thoroughfare, much to the satisfaction of travellers after it 
has become thoroughly compacted by a few months' use. In 
this connection it seems proper that I should repeat ray recom- 
mendation of last year, that the present block stone paving on 
Main street should be continued northerly as far as Centre 
street, where the Macadamizing of the present season began. 
Continued observation the more fully confirms my belief that 
such a course would be wiser than to attempt to provide any 
substitute paving for that square. The heavy teaming through 
Bridge street to Main street requires something as an improve- 
ment in the street at that point, and though block paving may 
at first be expensive, it is the most durable and satisfactory of 
anything which can be furnished to meet the requirements of 
travel in that locality. If it should be decided to attempt such 
work, a special appropriation for the purpose should be provided, 
as the sum required would probably be much in excess of what 
could be spared from the general appropriation for that pur- 
pose. The city has no granite blocks for paving now on hand, 
and such paving as has been called for has been laid with "cob- 
ble" paving. Quite an amount of this has been laid under the 
railroad tracks on Chandler street, covering an area of some five 
hundred square yards. The gutter paving has been kept in 
good condition, and new gutters have been laid on both sides of 
Rumford street between Short street and Washington street. 
Gutter paving upon the hillsides is almost an absolute necessi- 
ty for the protection of the streets during the melting snows of 
spring and the heavy showers of summer, and but few locali- 
ties in the compact part of the city are now unprovided. 

The amount for "Sidewalks and Crossings" aggregates 
$3,289.41 — an increase of some eleven hundred dollars from last 
year. This increase is explained, as indicated in my report for 
last year, by the construction of a larger amount of concrete 
walk than usual, the square around the government building 
alone making an addition to this account of nearly $1,200. 

The full amount of the expense of constructing sidewalks is 
included in the sum above given, the item of collections from 
abuttors of one half the expense is given in the receipts, so 
that the actual expense to the city for sidewalks and crossings 
would be reduced by the amount received for collections from 
concrete. 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 119' 

The crossings which are constructed each year are a consid- 
erable item of the expenses iucUided in this account, as it has 
been the intention of the commissioner to construct crossings at 
the junctions of all streets as soon as the concrete walks are 
completed upon both sides of the street, and also at such other 
points as seem best to serve the wants of public foot travel. 

The expense of cleaning the streets is practically represented, 
under the heading of " Cleaning and Sprinkling Streets," by the 
amounts of the labor pay-rolls, with the addition of the amount 
attending the repairs of the street sweeper. This machine has 
for the first time been provided with a metallic brush in place 
of the rattan formerly used, and the change seems to give good 
satisfaction. The greater permanency of the brush thus pro- 
vided, over the kind formerly used, can scarcely be doubted. 

The sprinkling account includes a new sprinkler, besides the 
various sums entered under that heading, an explanation of 
each of which is shown in the account. The suggestion which 
1 have before made, that it may be desirable to include the com- 
pact part of the city in a " sprinkling precinct," occurs more 
forcibly with each succeeding year. The subscriptions for 
sprinkling are not in fair proportion to the cost, and if no other 
than the city teams were used for the purpose, the expenses 
for this work could not possibly be met from the limited amounts 
at command. My experience in connection with this subject 
leads me to believe that if a reasonable plan can be provided, 
which will secure to all citizens the advantages afforded by the 
sprinklers, so that the expense of the same can be equitably 
divided, it will meet with general and hearty approval. 

The " winter expense " shows a large increase, as both the 
heavy snow-storms of January 25 and March 12 had to be cared 
for from the appropriation for the current year. The total 
amount expended as properly chargeable to winter expense for 
the Central district was $3,759.75, being more than $1,400 in 
excess of the previous year. The amounts annually to be re- 
quired for this purpose are very uncertain, being entirely 
dependent upon the weather, though it will readily be seen 
that any excess above the ordinary sums required for this pur- 
pose reduces in so much the amount available for the ordinary 
and permanent work of this department. 



120 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The foregoing remarks indicate in a general way the amounts 
which have been applied for the various works undertaken as a 
part of the routine duties of this department. Other items, not 
properly falling under either of the above classifications, are 
included under the term " General Repairs." Most of the items 
found in this account will explain themselves, the largest part 
of the sum being the aggregate of the labor pay-rolls, which in- 
clude the labor attendant upon caring for all the highways 
within the limits of the Central district. It would hardly be 
possible to refer in detail to tiie labor thus applied in various 
localities. It has been the intention of the commissioner to 
attend immediately to an}' work suggested as being necessary 
to render the highways passable and safe. 

In many sections it is impossible to construct good, perma- 
nent roads, from lack of suitable material ; but improvements 
have been attempted wherever it could be done in a reasonably 
economical manner. Gravel suitable for making good roads is 
becoming scarce, and requires to be drawn from longer distances 
than formerly. But with our present system of road-building, 
a large amount of gravel is annually required, and it will be 
many years before the Macadamizing of streets will become so 
general as to allow of its discontinuance in any marked degree. 
As showing the amounts required in a single locality, it mav be 
mentioned that one thousand and fifty-eight loads of gravel have 
been used on the Millville road, from the jail to the Long Pond 
road beyond St. Paul's school. This thoroughfare has needed 
more care of recent years, from the fact that it is very largely 
used for pleasure travel, in addition to the business travel which 
would naturally belong to it. Possibly this has been somewhat 
increased since the West Concord road has been avoided by 
timid horsemen, on account of the use of the steam-motor in 
that highway. An accurate counting of the teams passing over 
the Millville road in summer, at a time when St. Paul's school 
was not in session, shows an average during the past season of 
more than six hundred and fifty teams a day, for a full week 
when the count was made. Roads in other sections have been 
regravelled in short pieces to an amount which would make a 
large aggregate, though singly they would seem unimportant. 
One piece, however, on the East Concord road, extending from 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 121 

the railroad crossiug to the tannery, used four hundred loads of 
gravel, all of which was procured from the banks in the ceme- 
tery. 

The road machines belonging to the city have been used with 
effect, as in previous years, and their continued use in the coun- 
try districts is of great advantage and in the direction of true 
economy. The commissioner was authorized to procure an ad- 
ditional machine ; but the heavy drafts upon the appropriations, 
caused by the extraordinary demands upon the department in 
other directions, as herein referred to, made it seem judicious to 
defer for a season the purchase. The need exists, however, 
and, if the appropriation will allow, it should be procured early 
in the coming season. When the suggestion for its purchase 
was first made, it was in direct reference to the requirements of 
the highways in the northerly section of the city, particularly in 
and about the village of Penacook. The digging up of the 
streets in that village, for the introduction of the water and sew- 
erage system, has rendered extensive repairs necessary, and a 
considerable outlay must be made before they can be restored 
to a reasonably satisfactory condition, 

A large number of catch-basins will be required at Penacook, 
the possibility of which was suggested in my report for last 
year. Three such catch-basins have been constructed there 
already, and as those necessary appendages to the sewer system 
are provided for the removal of surface-water, they are properly 
chargeable to the highway department. 

I have thus referred in a general way to the work performed 
by this department, in order that your honorable body may be 
fully informed as to the duties and requirements of this impor- 
tant branch of the public service. 

I acknowledge with thanks the many courtesies received from 
the members of the city council, and, in declining a reelection to 
the position of commissioner of highways, it is with a gratify- 
ing appreciation of your friendly confidence heretofore. I have 
labored zealously for what I have believed to be for the best 
interests of the city, and trust that my acts have justified your 
confidence and met your approval. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES H. ROWELL, 

Commissioner of Highways.

REPORT OF THE COIVI^IITTEE 0:N" 
SEWERS AOT) DRAIN^S. 



To the City Goxmcil: 

The committee herewith submit the following report in rela- 
tion to sewers and drains for the year 1888 : 

Amount appropriated, .... $3,070.00 
Amount expended, .... 4,521.22 



Excess of expenditures over appropria- 
tion SI, 451. 22 

a detailed account of which will be found in the precinct de- 
partment of expenditures. 

It was expected by the committee that a larger appropriation 
would be required for the purpose of extending the sewer upon 
the east side of South Main street, at an estimated expense of 
$1,200, and the appropriation was increased $840 over 1887 
for that purpose ; but the demands for sewers have been much 
larger than anticipated, and it has been impossible for the com- 
mittee to keep the expenditures within the appropriation with- 
out denying that which seemed an actual necessity. 

Our city is gradually increasing in size and population, and 
many new buildings are being erected upon streets that have no 
sewer connections ; and it is expected and demanded by those 
citizens, who so build and occupy new houses, that they should 
be accommodated and supplied with such improvements, in or- 
der to comply with the requirements of the board of health. 

We regret that the lack of funds has prevented some changes 
and re[)airs that could have been made advantageousl}' to the sys- 
tem ; also, as quite a difference of opinion existed between the 
committee and citizens in the neighborhood as to what was most 
exi)edieut to do, it was thought best to defer action for the pres-

ent, although the time is not far distant when a large outlay of 
money will be required to perfect a permanent and satisfactory 
system in that locality. We refer to that portion of the system 
on Water street. The present sewer seems inadequate at times 
for the amount of water passing through it, and has occasioned 
much trouble and labor, also dissatisfaction to those living in 
that locality. A system of sewerage will be required to accom- 
modate those living in the western part of the city, where it is 
now impracticable for them to utilize the present system, and 
whenever this is done a permanent remedy and relief can be 
provided for the outlet at the Water Street sewer, the expense 
of which was estimated to be from S12,000 to $15,000. An- 
other important matter will also soon have to be considered, — 
that is, the extension of the large brick sewer from the foot of 
Depot street to Main, and thence up Warren to Spring street. 

During the past year a system of sewerage has been con- 
structed in Penacook, at an expense of more than $16,000, 
which, with the introduction of Long Pond water, supplies a 
long-felt want to that village, and one that will be greatly ap- 
preciated by its citizens. We trust that West Concord will not 
be far behind its sister ward in these improvements, and take 
advantage of the opportunities thus offered. 

During the past season there has been laid 1,321 feet of 8 in. 
pipe, 2,151 feet 10 in. pipe, and 736 feet of 12 in. pipe, making 
a total of 4,208 feet — an excess of 1,537 feet over 1887. 

New sewers have been constructed in accordance with peti- 
tions presented, and the expense of the same is as follows : 
The total expenditure, amounting to $4,521.22, as stated in the 
detailed account in precinct expenditures, has been sub-divided, 
so far as practicable, so as to show approximately the expense 
of each separate piece of work :

Water street was laid, but remains on hand, 
though repairs were made on the old sewer, and 
expense made in preparing for the new sewer to 
the amount of ...... . 96.80 



Making a total amount, as thus sub-divided, of $4,354.83 

The difference between this amount, which has been applied 
to each separate piece, and the total amount expended being 
$166.39, is represented to the amount of $100.85 for work done 
for Union School District on the Spring Street lot, payment for 
which has been made to the city treasurer, as will appear from 
his report. The balance of $65.59 is represented by ihe expend- 
itures for carting, for blacksmithiug, and for various tools re- 
quired in the general progress of the work, which could not 
properly be charged to any particular piece ; and as various 
articles still remain on hand, it has not been deemed necessary 
to make the exact sub-division. 

All petitions for sewers during the year have been granted 
and constructed, with one exception, where it was practicable. 
There have been one hundred and twenty permits granted to 
individuals to connect their drains with the public sewers.

KEPOKT OF PEIS^ACOOK SEWEE PRE- 
CINCT. 



To the City Council of Concord : 

The idea of a system of sewerage for the village of Penacook, 
a want long felt, and made more necessary by the introduction 
of Long Pond water, took definite shape at a meeting of the 
citizens of District No. 20, where the subject was fully discussed, 
and the matter was referred to a committee, with instructions to 
examine the different plans, estimate the cost, and report to an 
adjourned meeting. After a full and searching investigation, 
the committee reported that surveys had been made, and that 
they would recommend the overflow system, as suggested by the 
engineers, Messrs. Foss & Merrill. After full and free discus- 
sion of the matter, it was unanimously voted to instruct the 
aldermen from Ward 1 to secure, at the earliest moment, the 
construction of a system of sewerage that would meet the wants 
of the precinct, and that the precinct should be bonded to pay 
for the same. 

That action was taken, as your honorable body well know. 
A precinct was formed. A loan was placed upon what we con- 
sider to be very easy terms for the precinct to meet ; and the 
Committee on Sewers and Drains commenced the system. 
Owing to the large amount of rainy weather during the fall 
months, and the change of location of the main outlet, made 
necessary by the objection of the authorities of the Northern 
Railroad to the original plan, the cost of construction has been 
somewhat larger than it otherwise would have been, but the 
estimates have been exceeded but little, if any. We would rec- 
ommend that an additional appropriation be made the coming 
year of $3,000, and that the work be continued in places not in- 
cluded in the estimates for the vear 1888.

REPOKT OF THE TRUSTEES. 

To the City Council: 

An examination of the Librarian's report makes it manifest 
that an immediate increase of books is imperative. The patron- 
age of the library exceeds the expectation of its trustees, and 
renders their office of greater importance than heretofore. They 
are looked upon to supply the literary wants of our citizens, and 
to maintain the well-being of the library. In order to do so, 
the trustees respectfully request that an appropriation sufficiently 
large be made to meet the necessities of the library.

LIBKARIAlsr'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Tricstees : 

During the past year tlie librarj^ has been open for the deliv- 
ery of books 266 days, in which time 51,234 volumes have been 
given out, a gain of 8,893 volumes over the number given out 
in 1887. 

Nine hundred and seventy volumes have been added to the 
library, of which 821 were purchased ; the remainder were re- 
ceived as donations. 

The charge of twenty-five cents for each card was abandoned 
on the sixteenth day of March last, since which time the library 
has been, as required by the law of the state, free for the use 
of all the inhabitants of the city. 

The effect of this change was soon apparent in the increased 
call for cards and books. Between the first day of May and 
the twentieth day of October 23,302 volumes were given out, a 
gain of 6,953 volumes over the number given out in the corre- 
sponding time the preceding year. 

Eighteen hundred and thirty cards were issued between the 
sixteenth day of March and the first day of January of the 
present year. 

Agreeably to a vote of the City Council, a box of books has 
been sent to Penacook twice a week since the commencement of 
the summer season. At present about 180 volumes per week 
are required to meet the demands of patrons in that part of the 
city, and the demand for cards and books is still increasing. 

In order to enable the owners of the Board of Trade Building 
to make some desirable changes in their property, the delivery- 
room of the library was given up on the tenth day of August. 
This change made it necessary to move about three fourths of 
the books and fit up the remaining rooms for the changed condi- 
tion of the library. 

The removal of the books to the Fowler Librarv Building 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 141 

commenced on the twenty-second day of October, and the 
rooms in the Board of Trade Building were given up on the first 
day of November. 

Some time was necessarily spent in arranging the books of 
the circulating library in their new quarters, and the rooms were 
opened for their delivery on the twelfth day of November. 

Owing to the diflflculty in procuring workmen to finish the 
needed carpenter work in the new building, the reference library 
has not yet been arranged. 

The reading-room has been furnished with a supply of the 
leading magazines and newspapers published in the country, 
and is now in successful operation. The Sunday attendance 
as yet is small, but slowly increasing. 

More books are much needed in the circulating library. The 
number in this department should be doubled at once to meet 
the reasonable demands of the patrons. 

Respectfully submitted, 

D. F. SECOMB, 

Librarian.

REPOET OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

To the City Council: 

In submitting to your notice an abstract of our work during 
the past year, we would take this occasion to thank the Honora- 
ble Council for their cordial support, and would congratulate 
the public that so little disease of an epidemic character has 
prevailed. 

The climatic changes of the past season were unusually 
varied, yet the health of our citizens did not seem to suffer as 
might have been reasonably expected. The mortality rates of 
some other large towns and cities seemed to show the effects of 
prolonged moisture, and we believe that our immunity was 
largely due to the fact that we have a system of sewers and a 
good water-supply. 

The introduction of a water-supply and a partial system of 
sewers into Ward 1 has already been of great benefit to the 
citizens of that enterprising precinct, and, when the system is 
fully developed and carried out, it will richly repay its cost in 
the increase of the comfort and happiness of ever}' individual ; 
for it is a broad general principle that must always hold good in 
civilized communities, that whatever has a tendency to avert, 
destroy, or diminish discomfort, pain, sickness, death, vice, or 
crime, is a matter of vital importance, and of vital interest to 
every class of persons. In the introduction of pure water, and 
in devising a system for the safe and rapid removal of the sew- 
age of that ward, you have done a sanitary work that will event- 
ually prevent disease, prolong life, and improve the mental and 
physical conditions of the residents of this important suburban 



144 CITY OF CONCORD. 

ward of our city. It is to be lioped that every family iu Pena- 
cook will very soon "have a sufficient supply of pure vv^ater from 
the public water service, and that the system of sewers will be 
extended as fast as possible, until all are enabled to do away 
with cesspools, surface drains, and privies. 

It is true there is some expense attending improvements such 
as this system contemplates, yet how often, after all has been 
done, does the sanitarian hear expressions like this : *■' I do not 
see how we could get along without it, or realize how we used 
to suffer ; nor could we think of returning to the old way of 
cesspools," etc. This would at once lead one to infer that the 
increased expense was fully met in the increased comfort and 
happiness, to say nothing about the enhanced value of the 
property. 

We would respectfully call your attention to the report of the 
health officer and inspector, Mr. Cook. 

It is very evident from his report that you have made no mis- 
take in constructing new sewers in the compact part of the city 
during the past summer. Large sections have been accommo- 
dated, and the alacrity with which all concerned availed them- 
selves of those new sewers showed very conclusively that they 
were duly appreciated. Not only were a large number of fami- 
lies enabled to do away with surface drainage and cesspools 
that had become a local nuisance to themselves and also to their 
neighbors, but it will bring new lots for building purposes into 
the market, as they can utilize these sewers for drainage. 
Therefore a public sewer, like a public street, serves in its wa}' 
to open up sections of land for public and private enterprise. 

While the matter of sewers and drains is under consideration, 
we would respectfully call your attention, as we did last year, 
to the necessity for a more rigid municipal supervision of our 
sewerage system, and to reiterate our opinion of last 3'ear, that 
" No good business man would affirm that business principles 
would prompt any man, or a syndicate of men, to put one or 
two hundred thousand dollars into a commercial enterprise, and 
then leave it to take care of itself." It would not be considered 
good management to leave our system of water-works to be 
tapped at any place or iu any way that best suited the person 
or family desiring a water-supply. We all are ready to admit 



HEALTH REPORT. 145 

that such a course would in a short period destroy the whole 
system. 

The same reasoning obtains regarding our system of sewers, 
except " out of sight out of mind," and therefore but very few 
ever take the trouble to investigate or even think of what may 
occur, unless some better system of permanent supervision is 
evolved. 

One year since there was a consultation regarding sanitary 
matters and improvements in our city, and the honorable mayor 
recommended an increased appropriation of two hundred and 
fifty dollars for the purpose of paying the expenses of a com- 
mittee from the council and board of health, that they might 
visit other cities and learn from observation the sanitary con- 
ditions that promised the best results. Unfortunately for the 
best interests of our city, members of this council, as well as 
the board of health, have business or professional relations that 
demand all their time, and it is no easy task to arrange for a 
few days' absence, that would be necessary to investigate how 
others are disposing of garbage and the accumulating waste and 
effete matter incident to every large town or city. 

Therefore no part of the additional appropriation has been 
expended ; yet it is the opinion of this board that some such 
investigation should be commenced and prosecuted, until a com- 
mittee might be able intelligentl}^ to report to this council what 
has been accomplished in other cities having the same or similar 
conditions ; for it is better to profit by the experience of others 
than to be obliged to learn through the expensive experience of 
our own failures. This is especially true regarding the ultimate 
disposal of garbage, kitchen waste, etc. 

The intelligence of the people will ultimately reach a convic- 
tion that it is unnatural as well as unsanitary for any town or 
cit}' to pollute natural water-supplies with the waste products 
of a population calling themselves civilized, thereby rendering 
the water unwholesome and unfit for immediate use. The grow- 
ing necessity for public water-supplies in all large places only 
serves to render people more and more watchful of what neigh- 
boring towns and cities are doing with their sewage and waste 
matter. Constant vigilance is the price of safety. The drain- 
age area of a water-supply must be kept under the closest sup- 
10 



146 CITY OF CONCORD. 

ervision by the sauitary authorities of a community ; for it is 
not enough that we obtain a supply free from pollution — it must 
be kept so. 

A commission, appointed in Massachusetts to exercise a 
jealous guard over tlie public water-supply, reported over one 
year since, and upon their recommendation the state board of 
health " is invested with the general supervision of the water- 
supplies. No sewage, drainage, excrement, or other refuse or 
polluting matter of such kind or amount as, either by itself or 
in connection with other matter, will corrupt or impair the 
purity of a water used for domestic purposes, is permitted to be 
delivered into a water-course, or any of its feeders, within 
twenty miles above the point where a water-supply is taken. 
Upon the application of a city or town to the supreme court, 
alleging the pollution of its water-supply in violation of law, an 
injunction may be issued, or the polluting substances required 
to be so cleansed or purified that they shall no longer be delete- 
rious. The limit of twenty miles in this law is a defect ; but 
sanitary legislation is a thing of slow progress, and our friends 
in Massachusetts undoubtedly secured as much as was possible 
for them to obtain at the time." 

Now it may be some time before the people of New Hamp- 
shire demand that laws shall be specially enacted to protect 
themselves from the contaminating influences of the pollution 
of running water ; yet in common law the same individual rights 
obtain, and communities as well as individuals are law-breakers, 
and trample upon the inherent rights of every individual to pure 
air, a clean soil, and pure water, when they allow our lakes, 
brooks, and rivers to be polluted, as these are the natural water- 
supply of New Hampshire. 

Reasoning from analogy, your council cannot be too strict in 
the exercise of your power to protect the water-supply of our 
city. In fact, the law would hold the municipal council and 
water commissioners to be criminally culpable should any epi- 
demic or infectious disease be developed on account of the pol- 
lution of the water from any cause that ordinary human fore- 
sight might have averted. Because our water-supply is com- 
munal instead of individual is no excuse for its not being abso- 
lutely protected ; indeed, it should be made more imperative, 



HEALTH REPORT. 147 

for the larger the number supplied from a common reservoir, 
the greater the clanger from unhealthfnl influences. 

In this connection we would respectfully call your attention 
to the city physician's report on this subject. 

It has been said, by a distinguished writer on sanitation, that 
the condition of the streets of a city was a good index of the 
general intelligence and sanitary knowledge of its inhabitants. 
This may not be wholly true ; yet it is quite certain that ordi- 
nary foresight should prevent the necessity of promiscuous 
digging up of our streets to construct sewers and water service 
within a few days after expensive work has been done in paving 
or Macadamizing. 

It would seem but reasonable that whenever a section of our 
streets was to be improved by being paved or covered with 
broken stone, due notice should be publicly given, and all 
those along the line having house drains or water service requir- 
ing renewal or new work, should understand that all such work 
should be done before or while the reconstruction of the street 
was in progress. Our ordinances require all residing along the 
line of our public sewers to be connected therewith, and no bet- 
ter time can be found than while the street is being repaired ; 
then, nothing but extraordinary occasions should require the 
highway to be disturbed. We would also call tlie attention of 
the public to the ordinance requiring the replacing of the earth 
and paving when they have been disturbed ; and the fact that so 
little regard is paid to its provisions is only another evidence 
that we need further municipal supervision. Individual rights 
should not be infringed upon, yet the public have rights that 
should be respected, and the promiscuous digging up of our 
streets and the destruction of shade-trees should not be permit- 
ted. Such matters may not be directly injurious to the public 
health, yet they are productive of discomfort to the public as 
well as to those directly interested ; and improvements made by 
private enterprise, which directly or indirectly add to the beauty 
of our streets and thoroughfares, and to the comfort of those 
who traverse them, should not be allowed to be sacrificed with- 
out good and sufficient reasons. 

The board desire to call attention to the unsanitary condition 
of the lobby on Warren street. In their opinion it is not a fit 



148 CITT OF CONCORD. 

place for human beings to occupy, and its use for the detention 
of law-breakers, or for lodgings for the unfortunate, is a viola- 
tion of the laws of healtli. It has one door in front, a small 
window opposite and two others in the attic, and a small venti- 
lating cupola, beneath which is an opening about eighteen inciies 
square in the ceiling. The only possible means of ventilation 
are furnished by the door, windows, and trap-door. The use of 
the door for that purpose is out of the question at all times, and 
during cold weather the windows are also unavailable for this 
purpose, limiting the source of a fresh air-supply to the eighteen- 
incli aperture. 

There is more than an ordinary necessity for sufficient venti- 
lation, for one corner is occupied by a privy which is connected 
with the sewer, but is not supplied with running water to admit 
of its being properly flushed. Another fruitful source of foul 
and disease-laden air is located beneath the floor with its many 
cracks. For years the building has been cleansed of the filth 
which drunkenness and deviltry make plentiful, by flooding it 
with water, and then getting rid of it by allowing it to run off 
upon the ground under the building, through a small opening in 
the floor. The deposits remain upon the ground to send back 
their poisonous effluvia, especially in warm weather. 

The lobby is not provided with a padded cell, which is often- 
times imperatively needed, nor with any conveniences for the 
sick. The cells are alike, in that all have no furniture save a 
bare bunk of plank. There is no means of distinguishing in the 
accommodations between the poor unfortunate who is obliged to 
seek shelter, and the criminal who has transgressed the laws ; 
nor is there any provision for separating such females as it may 
be necessary to confine there from the low and vile of the oppo- 
site sex, save by the grated doors and walls of the cells opening 
out of a common corridor. 

These, briefly stated, appear to the board to be sufficient rea- 
sons, from the stand-point of health and morality, why action 
should be taken without delay to remedy an evil which has gone 
unnoticed far too long. 

While those who break the laws are not usually entitled to 
particular sympathy, yet they have a right to demand, as a 
matter of humanity, that while in confinement their sanitary 



HEALTH REPOUT. 149 

surroiindiugs shall not be such as to endanger or destroy 
health. 

In concluding this report, the board desire to call the attention 
of all our citizens to the provisions of section seven of the ordi- 
nance passed March 31, 1887 : 

" 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 lot or enclosure, or in any pond or other body of 
water where tiie current will not remove the same, any rubbish, 
dirt, soot, ashes, hay, sherds, oyster, clam, or lobster shells, tin 
cans, decaying fruit or vegetables, toaste water, or any refuse 
animal or vegetable matter tvhatsoever, nor keep in or about any 
dwelling-house, barn, shed, store, shop, or cellar, any of the afore- 
said substances in any manner liable to become putrid or offen- 
sive, or injurious to the public health." 

The report of the health officer serves to show that a great 
many use back alleys, and drive-ways in the rear of blocks, for 
dumping all forms of rubbish, and complaints are frequently 
made that slops and refuse of all kinds are thrown from the 
back windows of tenement-house blocks, making a local nui- 
sance near the windows of the basement or lower floors. Ashes 
are not only thrown upon the surface in these localities, but 
any one having occasion to go about the city with teams, during 
the winter months, finds that a great many violate this section 
in throwing their daily accumulation of ashes into the street. 

No prosecutions have yet been made by the health ofl3cer for 
violations of this section, and the board sincerely hope none will 
be necessary. 

If our citizens will assist our health officer by having a system 
of home inspection, he would find far less reason to leave orders 
for cleaning up back yards ; and, as owners of blocks and tene- 
ments are held equally responsible, under the law, with occu- 
pants, we append the regulation adopted by this board, and ap- 
proved by the council April 30, 1887 : 

" The board of health ask the people carefully to read the 
ordinance, and especially to note that it devolves upon them to 
execute the provisions thereof, for no money has been appro- 
priated to carry away garbage, or to clean up back yards or 
alleys; on the contrary, sections 15 and 25 expressly provide 



150 CITY OF CONCORD. 

penalties for the neglect or violation of ' an}' or either of the 
sections of this chapter,' etc. Therefore we call upon all our 
citizens to clean out baciv yards and vacant lots, to proliibit and 
prevent the throwing of garbage and all waste matter into back 
yards and allevs, as well as the dumping of ashes and perish- 
able materials into the street, or alley-wa}', or vacant lots, unless 
the same had been specified as a dumping-ground by tlie health 
officer, in which case people so using such dumping-grounds 
must comply with the rules and regulations concerning the man- 
ner 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 aslies or other 
material, will be held responsible for the condition sucli grounds 
are found to be in." 

The legislature in 1883 enacted a stringent law, the provisions 
of which were intended to protect the public against loss of life 
by fire. While Concord has not in the past been so unfortunate 
in this respect as some cities in New Hampshire, yet there are 
a good many buildings within our limits that are not " so erect- 
ed as to afford ample facility for entrance and exit on all occa- 
sions ; suitably provided with means of escape in case of fire ; 
and also that they be erected with reference to the health and 
safety of the persons who may reside in or visit them." 

The board of health desire to call attention of the council to 
section three of said act : 

" The board of engineers of every city and the fire- wards of 
every town shall, for the purposes of this act, be deemed inspec- 
tors of buildings, unless otherwise provided by such cities or 
towns : and every building by them designated as requiring ex- 
amination shall be examined within ten days by such board of 
mayor and aldermen, or said selectmen, as provided in section 
two." — Laws of 1883, ch. 94, sec. 4. 

According to this section, the board of engineers are to be 
deemed the inspectors of buildings, but the ordinance establish- 
ing and maintaining our fiie department fails to make this a part 
of their duties. 

Their duties of collecting fines from absent members, to see 
that members of the department " wear some suitable badge," 



HEALTH REPORT. 151 

and that " each company of the department shall appear for an 
annual parade and inspection," are explicitly set forth ; but 
nothing is said about their duties as inspectors of buildings and 
making report to the board of mayor and aldermen, who are re- 
quired to examine any building designated within ten days. 

These are only quotations from our state laws, and explana- 
tory ordinances for the use of our municipal departments should 
be furnished. 

We are often asked by medical men and others if the city have 
an ambulance that can be used to carry the injured or sick to 
their homes or to the hospital. We are obliged to answer in 
the negative. Yet there have been several instances during the 
past year when such a vehicle was very much needed ; and the 
board would recommend one to be kept either at the central fire 
station or at some centrally located stable, from which it could 
be quickly summoned for the use of the police or fire depart- 
ment, as well as for conveying patients to the hospital. 

It may be added that these are small matters to bring before 
the honorable city government. This is true ; yet the chances 
to perform great deeds are comparatively rare, and fall to the 
lot of but very few, while the sum total of human happiness in 
this world is made up of little things, almost infinitesimal in 
themselves, yet in the aggregate they make life's work a perpet- 
ual sunshine, or a dismal, fatiguing, uncomfortable existence ; 
and while people should not be expected to endure the discom- 
forts of the unsanitary conditions around them, still all must 
remember that the settlement of personal animosities and neigh- 
borhood disputes forms no part of the work of a health oflScer.

REPOKT OF THE HEALTH OFFICEK. 



To the Board of Health : 

On entering upon the duties of health officer for the season of 
1888, I caused notices to be printed, and also published in the 
daily papers, calling the attention of the owners and occupants 
of tenements and other property in the city to the duty of clean- 
ing up their premises and putting them in such a condition as 
to conform to the sanitary laws. This request was generally 
complied with, and a large amount of the cleaning of yards and 
vj^ults was done before the commencement of warm weather. 

Attention was also given to a number of vacant lots on some 
of the streets and in the rear of blocks on Main street, that had 
been used for the depositing of all manner of rubbish. Owners 
of these lots were notified to have them cleaned up, and notices 
were posted thereon calling attention to the city ordinance in 
relation to this matter. Teams were furnished when desired, 
at the expense of the applicants ; and quite a number of orders 
for the cleaning of vaults were also received, and given to par- 
ties who left their names for that purpose. 

There are at the present time but two places specified in the 
regulations of the board of health for the dumping of rubbish. 
These are on the bank of the river, upon tlie city lot east of the 
river and north of the Free Bridge road, and in a similar posi- 
tion on the land of Messrs. Robertson & Rowell, on the west 
side of the river and south of the Free Bridge road. 

There is plenty of room at these places for dumping purposes. 
They are easy of access, and people should conform to the rules, 
and not dump their rubbish on vacant lots or on the sides of the 
roads leading out of the city. 

The number of requests and complaints for various causes 
during the past season was 109, as follows: 

Bad well-water, ........ 1 

Bad drainage, ......... 1

These complaints were attended to, and a disposition was 
evinced to comply with the requirements of the health ordi- 
nance. 

From the inspections made in 1887, it was found that many 
houses situated on the line of the street-sewers were not con- 
nected with them, in violation of the laws relating to the same. 
Owners of houses thus situated were notified by direction of tiie 
board of health to conform to the laws, and connect their 
premises with the sewer. At last accounts 61 private houses 
and 55 tenements had been connected, which shows that good 
progress has been made in this direction. There has been no dis- 
position to oppress any one, and a number who were not able, for 
good reasons, to make the improvement the past season will do 
so next summer. The building of the much needed sewer in 
the rear of the east side of South Main street, connecting with 
the one in Chandler street, furnishes sewerage to 17 more tene- 
ments, and the owners were ready to avail themselves of the 
privilege. 

This sewer was mainly built for the benefit of these tene- 
ments, as they were so situated that they could not connect 
with the South Main Street sewer. The extension of the sewer 
from Washington street around into Centre and also a part of 
Pine street, will greatly accommodate the houses in that section. 
By the laying of a branch sewer near Fiske's lane, at the North 



154 



CITY OF CONCORD. 



End, to the land of Mead & Mason, the sewerage of thirteen 
tenements belonging to them is carried away instead of flowing 
out on the surface and polluting the soil, Most of these tene- 
ments were so situated that they could not connect with the 
North Main Street sewer, and the branch sewer was put in for 
their benefit. Credit is due to Mead & Mason for the efforts 
they have made the past season in providing better sewerage for 
their tenements in different parts the city, and also to A. F. 
Holt and the executors of the estate of B. F. Caldwell for simi- 
lar improvements in the tenements on Turnpike street. 

A great improvement has been made at Penacook by the con- 
struction of sewers in most of the streets of that village. A 
number of owners of private houses and tenements have availed 
themselves of this opportunity for better drainage, and further 
improvements may be expected during the coming year. 

In one instance, in the compact part of the city, the well- 
water used in a block of tenements was analyzed by Prof. E. R. 
Angell, and found to be bad, and Lake Penacook water was 
substituted by the owner when it was evident that the well- 
water was unfit to use. 

Where sickness and death have occurred from contagious dis- 
eases, and were thought to be caused by the unsanitary condition 
of the premises, an investigation has been made, and whatever 
was found to be wrong has been repaired by the owners. In 
one instance, in a double-tenement house where scarlet-fever 
prevailed in a family, a change was made from privy vaults to 
water-closets. In another case, where a death resulted from 
diphtheria, and a defective sink drain was discovered, the old 
drain was taken out, an iron pipe substituted, and a sink-trap 
put in. 

The sanitary inspection was continued during the season of 
1888 with the following results:

Since the month of August a monthly statement of the mor- 
tality of the city has been prepared from the returns made ta 
the city registrar. These have been furnished to the daily pa- 
pers, and sent in exchange to other cities. The statement gave 
information as to the number and cause of deaths, death rate 
per 1,000, locality, sex, color, condition, age, and place of bur- 
ial. The number of births was also given, and a meteorological 
report was inserted, taken from the monthly statement prepared 
by Hon. W. L. Foster. Reports in exchange have been re- 
ceived from various parts of the country, and contain much 
information. Notwithstanding the bad weather and the large 
number of sudden deaths from accident during the year 1888, 
I think that the death rate of Concord will compare favorably 
with other cities in the United States. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. M. COOK, 

Health Officer, 

Concord, Dec. 31, 1888. 



The sad and unfortunate cases of sickness and death from 
typhoid fever in the families of Harry and John Hawkins, oc- 
curred in the autumn of 1888. The former lived in a third- 
story tenement in Stickney block, and the latter in a tenement 
on Wentworth avenue. 

Harry Hawkins was the first one taken sick, and died in Sep- 
tember, after a short illness. His wife was stricken with the- 
disease, but recovered after being taken to the City HospitaL 



156 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Mrs. John Hawkins was the next one taken sick, and died in 
October at her home on Wentworth avenue. The two daugh- 
ters, Bessie and Ada Hawkins, and the nurse, Miss Tupper, 
who attended Mrs. Hawkins, were taken ill soon after, and were 
removed to the hospital. The sons, George and John, had 
symptoms of the disease, and were also taken to the hospi- 
tal. Bessie, George, and John died at the hospital within a 
short time of each other. Miss Tupper recovered, and Ada, at 
this time of writing, is in a fair way to recover. John Haw- 
kins, the father, did not take the disease, neither did any one 
in the families that lived in the other tenements. Thus, of the 
eight who were taken sick, five died and three recovered. 

The tenement occupied by Mr. Hawkins, and owned by 
J. Wentworth, is situated on Wentworth avenue. It is in 
the west end of a block of tenements, and was formerly a 
stable, but some two 3'ears ago was raised up, a cellar put 
under it, and it was fitted up for a dwelling. Two other tene- 
ments in the block have connections, for the water-closets 
and sinks, with the same sewer-pipe as did the tenement occu- 
pied by Mr. Hawkins. 

After the death of Mrs. Hawkins, I visited the house, and, in 
company with Mr. Hawkins, went into the cellar to see if there 
was any defect in the sewerage or plumbing. The cellar had a 
cement floor, and was in a clean condition. The water-closet 
was situated in the cellar, and was of the direct pressure style, 
and a ventilating-pipe connected it with the chimney. The pipe 
from the sink came down into the cellar, and entered the sewer- 
pipe near the water-closet. There was a trap in the sink-pipe 
just below the kitchen floor. As the soil-pipe was under the 
cement floor, I could not discover anything that was wrong 
about the drainage. The water-closet and sink-pipe were on the 
east side of the cellar, and the most of the soil-pipe was in the 
cellars of the other tenements. There was no soil-pipe ventila- 
tor going up through the roof as required in the city ordinance 
in relation to sewers and drains. Soon after this all of the 
family who were sick were taken to the hospital. 

On the evening of November 4, Dr. S. C. Morrill, who was 
at that time the attending physician at the hospital, called at 
my house and said that a thorough investigation of the premises 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 157 

was desired, to find out, if possible, what was the cause of this 
sickness. Mr. Hawkins also came to me the next morning and 
made the same request. I immediately went to see Mr. Went- 
worth, and told him that something must be done in the matter 
of an investigation, and of a repairing of whatever was found to 
be wrong. He thought there was nothing the matter with the 
house, but was willing to do what was right about it, and as 
Mr. Hawkins had a lease of the house, he would make some 
arrangements with him about the repairs, if found necessary. 

Workmen came soon after, and dug down to the sewer-pipe 
just outside of the house in the yard. They found that there 
was no trap at that point, although there were traps in the soil- 
pipes connecting with the water-closets of the three tenements 
situated in the cellars. Upon breaking into the drain under the 
cement floor, it was found to be filled with sewage-water from 
the sinks and closets. The water did not run off as it should 
into the street sewer, and there was not inclination enough in 
the pipe, both inside and outside, so that it was liable to be ob- 
structed. 

The repairs that were made, upon ascertaining the conditioD 
of the sewerage, were as follows : The five-inch Akron pipe 
under the cement floor was all taken out, and an iron pipe 
laid in its place. A trap was put in just outside of the house, 
and a ventilating or fresh air flue connected with it. The 
highest part of the soil-pipe in the cellar of Mr. Hawkins's ten- 
ement was connected with an iron ventilating-pipe run out 
through the roof. About seventy-five feet of the six-inch 
Akron pipe in the yard was taken up and relaid, and the 
right inclination given, so that there should be no danger of 
its being obstructed in the future. I think that the sanitarv 
condition of the premises at the present time is good.

158 CITV OF CONCORD. 



EEPORT OF THE CITY PHYSICIAN. 



To the City Council : 

In accordance with an annual custom and the provision of a 
city ordinance, the City Physician begs leave to submit the fol- 
lowing report : 

Whole number of visits made during the year, . . 43 

Prescriptions given at office, ...... 7 

Obstetric cases attended, . . . . . • 1 

It will thus be seen that there has been but little sickness 
among our city poor. And, although we had during the au- 
tumn months a protracted term of wet weather, which is condu- 
cive to disease and death, still our death-rate for the year will 
not be far above the average of that of years past. This mat- 
ter, however, is fully discussed in the report of the board of 
health. 

It may not be improper here to refer to a matter about which 
the City Physician has been questioned more or less during the 
year, namely, the cutting of ice on Penacook lake. Owing to 
greater enlightenment upon such subjects, our community is 
coming to recognize the value, from a sanitary stand-point, of 
pure ice as well as pure drinking-water. Nothing can be more 
erroneous than the popular idea that water becomes purified by 
freezing. If water is unfit for use, it can be hardly less so after 
being frozen. In support of this assertion, the following is 
quoted from page 9, Vol. 1, No. I, of The Sanitary Volunteer, 
the official organ of the State Board of Health : 

" GATHERING AN ICE-SUPPLY. 

" As the time approaches for the gathering of the yearly ice-supply, it 
would be well for all to remember that impure ice is as dangerous as im- 
pure water, and as readily found. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 159 

" Ice for domestic use should never be gathered from a source where the 
water before freezing was unfit for drinking purposes. The idea enter- 
tained by some that water, in freezing, eliminates its impurities, is a dan- 
gerous theory because it is false. Epidemics have been traced to the use 
of polluted ice. Analysis and microscopic investigations have shown ice 
to contain large quantities of organic matter, as well as bacteria, which 
became active when the ice was melted. The germs of typhoid fever, and 
probably of other diseases, may be imprisoned in ice, and after liberation, 
by melting, become active in the production of disease. These are facts 
well known in sanitary science, and they should be equally well under- 
stood by the people. 

" Be as guarded in the selection of ice as in the choice of a supply of 
water. Gather ice only from clean streams and ponds. Purchase of no 
dealer who does not follow this rule." 

We have in Penacook lake an ample supply of pure water, 
so the ice cut there is pure and wholesome ; but if present 
methods are continued, this will not always be the case. 

As you are aware, the ice is cut not far from the crib or in- 
take of our water-supply. During the cutting and drawing 
away of the ice, fifteen to twenty teams (thirty to forty horses) 
are on the ice more or less of the time, and a considerable 
amount of excrement from the teams must of necessity be left 
on the pond. When the ice thaws in the spring, this, being so 
near the intake, contaminates the water which we drink. The 
question which has been asked is repeated here : Is there not 
some suitable apparatus which can be economically operated by 
steam or other motive power, by which the ice can be cut and 
floated to the shore, thereby doing away with the necessity of 
having any teams on the pond ? 

This is a matter which seems to be beyond the control of the 
local board of health ; but I believe it is worthy of your careful 
consideration. Chapter XXI, Section 11, of the Revised Oi'di- 
nances, reads as follows : " No person shall swim, bathe, or go 
into Penacook lake, or put therein, or upon the ice thereof in 
the winter season, or upon the shores so near the water thereof 
as to cause the defilement or pollution of said water, any ani- 
mal or vegetable matter, or any other substance that will defile 
or pollute said water." 

Section 6 of the Health Ordinance, passed March 31, 1887, 
the latter part, reads as follows: "He [the sanitary officer] 



160 CITY OF CONCORD. 

shall also enforce the provisions of Section 11, Chapter XXI^ 
relating to the pollution of the water of Penacook lake." As 
the parties have permission from the water commissioners, or 
board of mayor and aldermen, or both, to cut the ice, it is 
hard to see what power the sanitary officer may have in the 
premises, especially as he is not on duty during the winter ; and 
as there are prescribed duties which demand all his time in the 
city in the summer months, it is impossible for him to be at the 
lake to enforce the ordinance during those months. There seems 
to be but one practicable remedy : see to it that the lake and 
the shores are not used as a pleasure resort, and allow no teams 
on the ice. 

Is it not unwise, nay, more, is it not criminal, to allow our 
water-supply to become contaminated either in the manner of 
cutting ice, or by its surface and shores being used as a pleasure 
resort during the warmer months? 

The City Physician takes this opportunity to express to you 
his own gratitude, as well as the gratitude which all those who 
have profited by it must feel, for the generous annual appropri- 
ation which you have made to the City Hospital, thereby mak- 
ing it possible for some of our sick poor to receive that care 
and attention which they could not possibly otherwise have en- 
joyed. An idea prevails to some extent among a certain class^ 
that going to the hospital is equivalent to signing one's own 
death-warrant. This, no doubt, arises largely from the fact 
that all the deaths occurring there are published in the daily 
papers, while the recoveries are published only in the annual 
report. All who are acquainted with the institution know that 
the chances of recovery in the hospital are equal, and in many 
cases superior, to what they would be in one's own home. No 
more worthy use can be made of the city's money than in con- 
tinuing the same appropriation for another year. 

In closing, the City Physician would call your attention to the 
reports of the city marshal and board of health upon the con- 
dition of the lobby. When called to that institution profession- 
ally, as has happened several times during the year, he found 
a deplorable condition of things. Think of a man with a battered 
head, another with a lame hip and blistered feet, or any tired, 
unfortunate, and penniless traveller who happens to come along 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 161 

aud want a night's lodging, being given a bed in that place ! The 
best bed consists literally of two-inch hard wood planks, without 
mattress, pillow, blanket, or any article of bed-clothing. Think, 
again, of six or eight persons of both sexes,— drunks, criminals, 
and unfortunates, together, — being confined in a building of that 
size during a hot summer night, and with practically no means 
of ventilation ! The odors arising from the bodies of so many 
persons, most of them filthy, would be almost unbearable ; and 
when to this is added the emanations from human excrement, 
the place becomes unfit for dumb animals. The interests of hu- 
manity and common decency demand a condition of things radi- 
cally different, and may the fair fame of our city soon cease 
to be blackened by that institution. 
Respectfully submitted, 

H. C. CUMMINGS, M. D., 

City Physician.

EEPOET OF THE CITY MARSHAL. 

To the City Council:

I would respectfully submit that this department requires 
a police-station suitable for its business. The present one 
needs no introduction as to its reputation or condition. I would 
recommend, when a police-station is built, that three grades 
of cells be provided. First, for drunks ; that the cells be so ar- 
ranged as that they may be flooded with water to cleanse the 
same. Second, for prisoners and lodgers. Third, for unfortu- 
nate people, who call for a night's lodging. Perhaps it is not 
generally understood that we have calls for lodgings from peo- 
ple who have seen better days ; people who have been nnable to 
find work or friends ; people who have missed the train ; — and 
for women, no matter how low they have fallen, to occupy a 
hard bench in a cell next (perhaps) to a howling drunk, crazed 
by delirium tremens, is seemingly cruel. 

I would recommend that a police-box, or lock-up, be placed at 
East Concord, also one at West Concord, with telephone con- 
nection with each, for the reason that it is not always conven- 
ient for a special officer to procure a team, or spare the time to 
convey a prisoner to this oflSce ; and I think it would greatly 
assist in preserving good order in those wards, and encourage 
the officers in doing their duty. 

Perhaps it is unnecessary for me to mention the increasing 
demand for an enlargement of the present police force. I would 
recommend that three additional night-watch be added at once, 
— one to have a beat at the South Eud, one at the North End, 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 218 

and one to patrol from Pleasant to Franklin street, west of 
Spring street. 

With the three night men at present on duty, two of them are 
liable to be called away to quell a disturbance, or to make an 
arrest at East Concord or West Concord. They may be called 
eight miles from this office. It requires two men to go with a 
team and make an arrest. Is it prudent to leave only one man 
on duty ? and he may be called to some part of the city to at- 
tend a reported disturbance ; for the number of arrests made 
are but a part of the many duties performed by the officers. 

During the day I have endeavored to keep this office open to 
telephone communications. The demands upon my time have 
been such that I have been compelled to be away from the office 
investigating cases, looking up evidence, consulting with the city 
solicitor, etc., — that for each and every day. There are times 
when no police officer is on the street, — he being in the office dur- 
ing my absence, — to properh' keep track of hard characters ar- 
riving in town. An officer should attend the arrival of all reg- 
ular passenger trains ; and if it is deemed expedient, I would 
recommend the appointment of one additional day officer. Some 
ordinance should be passed regulating vicious and dangerous 
dogs. Quite a number of our citizens have been bitten by dogs. 
In all such cases the owner has been requested (and a few owners 
have complied with the request) to either dispose of his dog, or 
put him on the chain. In some cases a number of persons have 
been injured by the same dog. I know of no ordinance to re- 
strain such dogs or owners. 

In concluding my first report, I wish to extend to His Honor 
the Mayor and Chief of Police, and to your honorable board, my 
most sincere thanks for the courteous treatment received at 
your hands ; also to the better class of citizens for their hearty 
cooperation in enforcing duties pertaining to this office. Thanks 
are also due to Harry G. Sargent, city solicitor, for the prompt 
and efficient aid he has given this office. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G. S. LOCKE, 

City Marshal.

216 CITY OF CONCORD. 



EEPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council : 

The only suits that are now pending in the supreme court, in 
which the city of Concord is interested as a party, are Haskell 
against Concord, and Concord against the Concord Horse Rail- 
road. The latter action is brought by the city to test the right 
of the Horse Railroad to construct sidings in the streets of the 
city without the same being located by the mayor and aldermen. 
The case is an important one, for if the claims made by the 
Horse Railroad are sustained b}' the court, they have extraordi- 
nary and unusual powers under their charter. The case was 
argued at the last December law term of the supreme court, by 
Hon. Jeremiah Smith, of Dover, N. H., for the Horse Railroad, 
and by the city solicitor for the city. It will probably be de- 
cided at the March law term, 1889. 

The suit of Haskell against Concord is brought to recover 
damages caused to the plaintiff by the alleged improper con- 
struction of a sewer in West Concord. The amount of dama- 
ges claimed is $1,000. It will probably be tried at the next 
trial term of the supreme court. 

Since my last report, the Knibbs Valve cases against Con- 
cord and the other cities of New Hampshire, which were then 
pending in the United States circuit court, have been decided in 
favor of the cities, and the matter is finally ended. The cities 
have won a complete victory. Ex-Judge Foster, who was coun- 
sel for the combined cities of New Hampshire, is entitled to 
great credit for the skilful manner in which he conducted the 
defence for the cities.

Solicitor.

KEPORT OF THE SPECIAL COIVOIITTEE 

FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF BLOSSOM HILL 
CEMETERY. 



The special committee for the improvement of Blossom Hill 
cemetery respectfully submit the following report of progress 
for the year ending Dec. 31, 1888 : 

1. The highway fronting the entrance to the cemeter}' has 
been considerably widened and much improved at the expense 
of the Department of Highways, and the retaining wall on the 
easterly side of the roadway relaid and extended northward for 
some distance, greatly improving the approach from the city. 

2. The contract made last year with R. McDonald for one 
thousand running feet of stone wall has been carried out, and 
the wall laid to the satisfaction of the executive committee hav- 
ing the work in charge, and it is to be hoped will merit the ap- 
proval of the public. 

3. The culvert leading, from the ravine south of the main en- 
trance, and passing under Rumford street, has been extended 
within the cemetery a distance of about seventy-five feet, with 
the intention of filling at least a portion of the ravine, and thus 
giving opportunity for a needed widening of the roadway within 
the enclosure. The retaining-wall of the street at the same 
point has also been moved, and relaid in a more substantial 
manner than before. 

4. Mr. Charles Elliott, of Boston, has furnished plans for the 
laying out of lots in the newer portions of the grounds not be- 
fore allotted, and also for the approaches at the main entrance. 
The opening at the line of the street for this entrance-way will 
be one hundred and forty feet, gradually narrowing by a convex 
curve to about fifty feet in widtii, fifty feet back from the front 
line of the cemetery. This will afford convenient width for an 
appropriate granite (arched) gateway, which it is hoped some 



CEMETERIES. 



239 



of our citizens may be pleased to contribute in loving memory 
of the dead. 

The details of expenditure will be found in the report of the 
treasurer. 

The committee have in contemplation the coming year such 
an extension of the front wall, and grading of the grounds adja- 
cent, as the appropriations made will permit of, and beg leave 
to urge the necessity for an increase of the amount to be appro- 
priated in order that the work may be carried forward more 

rapidly.

Penacook, 1,200 feet fabric hose, 1,000 feet leather hose. 
West Concord, 1,000 feet leather hose, in fair condition for 
hand-engine and hydrant service. East Concord, 600 feet 
leather hose. 

HYDRANTS. 

There have been 11 hydrants added during the year, making 
a total of 170 public and 22 private hydrants now in use. 

APPARATUS AND FORCE. 

The force of the Department is as follows : In the Precinct, 
at the Central Station, two second-class Amoskeag steamers, — 
" Kearsarge " with " Kearsarge Hose" (16 men), and Gov. 
Hill relief steamer with Eagle Hose (13 men). The hose- 
carriages are both of Amoskeag manufacture with reels. Hook 
and ladder carriage "City of Concord" (20 men). All the 



244 CITY OF CONCORD. 

apparatus is drawn by horses. All the men in these companies 
are call men. Permanent men are steward, assistant steward, 
and three drivers. There are six horses beside the steward's 
horse held within reasonable distance. Alert Hose (12 men) 
at the North End. The Alerts use a modern hose-wagon, and 
are provided with a horse kept constantly at the hose-house. 

Good-Will Hose (12 men), South End. The Good-Will use 
a modern hose-wagon, purchased by members of the company, 
and are provided with a horse, kept at a hack stable near the 
Hose-house. Each company has a swing harness. All the 
men are call men. 

The ''Pioneer" steamer at Penacook (28 men) is a fourth- 
class Silsby, with a second-class Amoskeag hose-carriage. The 
steamer can be drawn by horses or by hand, as necessity 
requires. 

The "Old Fort" at East Concord, and the "Cataract" at 
West Concord, are hand-engines, with jumpers for hose. Each 
company has 30 men. All the companies in the Department 
are supplied with hose-sleighs, except "Old Fort" at East Con- 
cord. 

HOUSES. 

During the year there has been erected in Ward 3 a sub- 
stantial and convenient brick building for use of Cataract 
Engine Company No. 3, and ward purposes. It will be provided 
with all necessary conveniences, and suitable accommodations 
for the members of the company, and when completed will be 
one of the best in the city. 

The Pioneer engine-house at Penacook needs painting. 

" Old Fort " engine-house at East Concord is in good con- 
dition. 

The house of Hose 3 needs remodelling, to meet the require- 
ments of the company. 

Last October the city government granted an appropriation 
of $1,200 for the purpose of enlarging the cramped quarters of 
the Alert Hose company at the North End. This has been 
accomplished by building a two-story addition of ornamental 
design to the front of the old structure, and the company has 
one of the best equipped fire-houses in New England. 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 245 

The apparatus room, which is about 32 by 20, has been fitted 
with all the latest improved devices, including an iron run-way, 
a stall in which a horse will be kept at all times, sliding-pole, 
electric lighting gas burners on all the jets, electric trip on the 
stall doors, and halter, and an electric lock ou side door, dis- 
pensing with the use of keys when an alarm comes in. By the 
use of large spring hinges on the doors, and also on the doors 
entering the stable, the complicated arrangement of cord, 
weights, and pulleys is dispensed with, adding much to the neat 
appearance of the quarters. The stall has been fitted with a 
patent iron flooring, which is so constructed and put in that it 
is believed that all objectionable odors will be reduced to a 
minimum, and the latest improved feeding crib and grain 
trough. In the second story of the addition is the sleeping- 
room, containing electric apparatus for the lighting of all the 
gas, unlocking the door, throwing open the stall doors and 
releasing the horse, which operations are simultaneously per- 
formed by means of one pull on a small lever. This story also 
contains the hay-loft, and ample room for the storage of com- 
pany property. The house has been handsomely painted 
throughout, is well lighted, and is a credit to the city and to the 
department. 

FIRE ALARM. 

This branch of the service has seen much needed improvement 
during the year. There has been erected on Jackson street 
a wooden tower, sixty-five feet high, and a metal bell placed 
therein weighing three thousand seven hundred and twenty-four 
pounds. The tower on Central Fire Station has been built 
higher, and a bell weighing three thousand seven hundred and 
forty pounds purchased to take the place of the smaller one 
formerly used. There have also been added five new boxes and 
three gongs. The gongs have been located as follows : One 
at Northern Railroad shop, one at Concord Railroad shop, one 
at Abbot-Downing Co. The alarm has also been changed from 
two circuit to four circuit, known as the North, South, East 
and West. In the North circuit there are five boxes, viz., Nos. 
23, 17, 15, 8, 14, two bells, 4^ miles of wire. 



246 CITY OF CONCORD. 

In the South circuit there are ten boxes, viz., Nos. 41, 48, 46, 
47, 49, 52, 45, 6, 42, 43, one bell, three gongs, 5^ miles of 
wire. 

In the East circuit there are five boxes, viz., Nos. 34, 35, 25, 
5, 24, five gongs, 4J miles of wire. 

In the West circuit there are nine boxes, viz., Nos. 26, 16, 13, 
18, 27, 32, 37, 7, 36. 4^ miles of wire. Total, 19 miles of 
wire, 29 boxes, 8 gongs, and 3 bells. 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

We have in the department two four-wheel hose-carriages 
with reels (Kearsarge and Eagle hose-carriages), located at 
Central Fire Station, which have seen years of service, and 
which, if kept in service longer, should be thoroughly repaired 
the coming year. And I would recommend the city council to 
dispose of the heavy, cumbersome, and less convenient car- 
riages, and purchase two modern hose-wagons to fill their 
places, which are in every respect a great improvement over the 
old reel. 

I also recommend the purchase of one thousand feet of fabric 
hose, 2 1-2 inch, Paragon brand. 

I would further recommend, "' and deem it essential," that 
the house of Hose 3 be remodelled and made suitable for the 
requirements of the company, which can be done witiiout great 
expense. 

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. 

In conclusion, I desire to tender ray thanks to the assistant 
engineers, oflflcers, and members of the different companies, for 
the active interest they have manifested in all matters pertaining 
to the success of the department. I also desire to express my 
thanks to His Honor Mayor Robertson, and to the Fire Com- 
mittee, for the interest they have taken in the welfare of the 
department. To the City Marshal and the members of his 
force, and to the Superintendent of Hre Alarm, I am under 
many obligations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHAS. C. BLANCHARD, 
Chief of Fire Department.

REGULATIONS OF THE CONCORD PRECINCT 
FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

ADOPTED CY THE BOARD OF ENGINEERS, AUGUST, 1888. 



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

FIRE-ALARM SIGNALS. 

1. Alarms rung in from boxes 41, 42, 43, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, and 52, 
will not be responded to by the Alert Hose until signalled. The signal 
to pi'oceed to the fire will be a second alarm ; the signal of dismissal, three 
strokes of the bells. 

2. Alarms rung in from boxes 13, 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.) 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 259 

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

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

Eagle Hose — To all calls, including the relief. 

Hook and Ladder — To box alarms only. 

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

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

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. 



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 by 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 nineteen miles of wire on the 
main lines, and seven miles of extension wire 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, — one of 3,724 pounds (bell-metal), one of 3,740 pounds (bell- 
metal), and one of 2,000 pounds (American steely. There are also seven 
engine-house gongs, four mechanical tappers, one four-circuit repeater, 
and three indicators. 

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

The battery consists of 103 cups for the main line, and five cups for 
the extension. 

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

MAYOR'S ADDRESS. 



Gentlemen of the City Cou7icil: 

The city charter makes it the duty of the Mayor 
to communicate, from time to time, to the city 
council such information, and recommend such 
measures, as the interests of the city shall, in his 
judgment, demand. 

In accordance with this requirement, and follow- 
ing the custom of my predecessors, I will briefly 
present to you such information in regard to the 
condition of our city, in its various departments, as 
I have been enabled to obtain, and will make such 
suggestions and recommendations as seem at this 
time to be advisable. 

Let me first call your attention to the bountiful 
manner in which a kind Providence has blessed 
our beautiful city during the past year, and the 
great benefits we have derived from His constant 
care over us. How peculiarly fitting it is that we 
have sought His divine guidance before entering 
upon the work that is before us, thus giving a 
public recognition of our dependence upon Him 
and His great goodness toward us. 

We have been elected by our fellow-citizens to 
responsible positions, and have taken upon our- 
selves solemn ol^ligations faithfully to perform the 
duties devolving upon us. I urge that we at once 
devote our time and attention to acquiring all 
19 



290 CITY OF CONCORD. 

needed information in regard to city affairs and 
the work to come before us, so that both in our 
public deliberations, and in our connnittee service, 
we shall be prepared to do our work intelligently. 
We are fortunate in having in the council some 
gentlemen whose previous experience in city affairs 
qualifies them to render us much assistance. Oth- 
ers of you, who come here for the first time, bring 
with you the knowledge gained in successful lousi- 
ness transactions, which has, no doubt, fitted you 
for what will come before us here. 

FINANCE. 

From the report of the Committee on Finance I 
get the following, as the financial condition of the 
city, January 1, 1889: 

Funded debt of the city .... 175,500.00 

Debt not funded 15,162.32 



$90,062.32

Showing a decrease of .... 112,299.72 

There has been issued during the past year Pen- 
aoook Sewer Precinct bonds and note for f 16,400. 
The payment of the principal as it matures, and 
interest, will be provided for by an annual taxation 
upon the property of the precinct. 

To the appropriation that must be made to meet 
the ordinary running expenses of the city, we must 
add enough to provide for, — 

City bonds becoming due in 1889 and 

Jan. 1, 1890 $14,000.00 

Interest on city debt due in 1889 . . 4,530.00

Interest on State-house loan bonds . . 1,860.00 

HIGHWAYS. 

From the report of the Commissioner of High- 
ways I gather the following statistics : 

Appropriations for highways for 1888, $22,000.00 

Rec'd from collections from sundry 

sources ...... 154.00 

Rec'd from street sprinkling subscrip- 
tions 985.00 

$23,139.00 

,737.16 



Appropriations for sidewalks . . $2,500.00 
Rec'd on acc't concrete collections . 1,237.16 



,876.16 



292 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Total expenditures, $28,284.06. 
An increase over 1887 of 17,085.29. 
An excess of expenditures of $1,407.90. 

The increase of expenditures in this department 
arises largely from the extraordinary expense of 
building the heavy stone wall and culvert near the 
entrance to Blossom Hill cemetery, the laying of 
the sidewalks about the government building, and 
the unusual amount of snow, which seriously 
blocked the highways during the winter of 1887- 
'88. This latter item of expense caused an increase 
of nearly $1,400 in the Central district alone, and 
also a considerable increase in the " outside dis- 
tricts." 

The system of subdivision of the expenses of 
this department into districts has been continued 
this year, so that a very intelligent idea of the work 
of the commissioner may be obtained at a glance. 
Notwithstanding all that has been expended on 
our streets and highways during the past year, 
many demands will undoubtedly be made for much 
more needed work this year. 

As we read the commissioner's report, we can 
realize in some degree the magnitude of the work 
which he has to do, in order that the appropriation 
which can be allowed this department may be 
properly distributed in the various districts so as 
best to satisfy their needs and demands. 

I invite your attention to his recommendation in 
regard to the necessity of building a new bridge 
in place of the present Free bridge, so called, at a 
near future time. I^othing will be gained by de- 



mayoh's addrkss. 293 

laying the consideration of this subject; and if, 
upon investigation, you should decide to do some- 
thing this year, I would suggest that the matter 
be placed in the hands of a committee, so that 
proper time can be taken for a full consideration, 
and an early report may be made to the city coun- 
cil. I am in favor of continuing, each year, the 
work of Macadamizing our streets as rapidly as is 
consistent with other needed highway expenses. 
I believe such streets to be cheaper in the end for 
our city, and the limited and decreasing quantity of 
gravel is thus available for use in other places. 

The streets in the Penacook district will require 
considerable attention this year, their condition 
being such as to need extended repairs on account 
of the laying of the sewers last year. We shall 
have the hearty support of our citizens in liberal 
appropriations for streets. 

SEWERS AISTD DEAESfS. 

The expenses of sewer construction in the centre 
precinct last year were $4,526.47, and the appro- 
priation w^as $3,070, which, added to the surplus 
from 1887, more than met the expenditure. 

Our system of sewerage has been so far com- 
pleted that a moderate appropriation, which can 
easily be carried, made annually for a few years, 
will soon supply each street in the precinct. There 
are some of our streets which will require our early 
attention, and I ask that the usual appropriation be 
made for continuing this work. I need not stop to 
discuss the importance of good sewers to our city, 



294 CITY OP CONCORD. 

but simply urge your careful consideration of the 
subject, as I believe the question of proper drainage 
to be of vital interest to us all. It is very neces- 
sary that all our people have correct ideas in this 
regard, that the best possible results may be ob- 
tained and dangers avoided. The new regulation 
compelling abuttors to enter the sewer seems to 
be a move in the right direction; and this regu- 
lation, and those of the board of health in regard 
to the sewers, should be impartially enforced. We 
shall get very much nearer perfection in this mat- 
ter when a more thorough supervision is established 
and enforced in plumbing our buildings and in 
connecting them with the sewer. 

My attention has been called to the need of 
sewers in West Concord. Water from Penacook 
lake has been so generally introduced there, that 
ultimately some plan of sewerage must be adopted; 
and whenever there is a general request from that 
village for a sewer precinct, I would recommend 
its favorable consideration. 

STREET LIGHTS. 

Our streets are, at the present time, lighted by 
means of seventeen electric lights and one hundred 
and eighty-seven gas-lights — an increase of five 
gas-lights during the past year. The electric lights 
have generally given satisfaction, and our citizens 
would be imwilling to have them discontinued. I 
regret that the excessive cost of everything con- 
nected with the production of electric lights, by 
methods now employed, gives us but little hope of 



mayor's address. 295 

their general introduction at present. It is for 
you to determine how many of them we can afford. 

Some complain that our gas-lights are extin- 
guished too early, and that our lamps are not light- 
ed on all dark nights. Under the present arrange- 
ment with the Gas-Light Company, the city pays 
$16 per annum for each lamp, on the basis of twen- 
ty nights per month, burning until eleven o'clock; 
and on all other dark nights it furnishes gas at the 
same rate per hour. If the gas were burned an 
hour later, it would increase the expense more than 
$500 per year. With the extra money now appro- 
priated on account of the electric lights, I hardly 
think it would be advisable to increase to any con- 
siderable extent the expenditure for gas lights. 
We may, however, be able to arrange with the 
Gas-Light Company for a moderate extension of 
the time of lighting, on satisfactory terms. 

Each electric light costs f 100 per annum, and 
burns every night until twelve o'clock. 

Appropriation for gas-hghts for 1888 . |3,500.00 
Expenditures 3,486.43 

Appropriation for electric lights for 1888 . $2,000.00 
Expenditures 1,764.96 

STREET SPIIEN'KLIN&. 

For an account of the work and expenditures in 
this department, I would refer you to the Street 
Commissioner's report, in which are included his 
suggestions in regard to a sprinkling precinct. 
Many of our citizens, Avho do not now enjoy the 
advantages of a sprinlder, are asking for it; but 



296 CITY OF CONCORD. 

under the present arrangement it is difficult to sup- 
ply them. 

ASSESSORS. 

I need not say that the Board of Assessors occu- 
pies a very responsible position in the work of the 
city government. It should be composed of men 
who have accurate judgment of property values, 
combined with unswerving fidelity. The city coun- 
cil has the duty of raising and appropriating money 
for the requirements of the city, but yours, gentle- 
men of the board of assessors, is the duty of esti- 
mating values, upon which the necessary taxes are 
assessed. 

Your best efforts will be required, that the bur- 
den of taxation may be as equitably distributed as 
possible. Any plans or suggestions that may aid 
in giving greater efficiency to this department 
will meet with my hearty cooperation. 

PUBLIC SCHOOLS. 

There has been raised and appropriated for 
schools and school-houses of our city the past year, 
including the literary fund and the dog tax, the 
sum of $41,416.74:, which does not include the un- 
expended appropriations made by Union School- 
District for school-houses. 

The increasing interest manifested in all matters 
pertaining to education is a very encouraging indi- 
cation of the character of our citizens. Our tax- 
payers do not object to any necessary increase of 
expenditures for schools. As indicating the earn- 
estness and liberality of our citizens in the past, I 



mayor's address. 297 

would refer you to the fact, that between Jan. 1, 
1857, and Jan. 1, 1889, there has been raised m 
this city for schools and school-houses the enor- 
mous sum of more than one million dollars. Re- 
membering this, it need not surprise us that Con- 
cord schools have become so popular, and have 
attracted so many of the best families of our state 
Avithin our borders, in order that their children might 
enjoy the superior advantages which our schools 
afford. Wliile the management of the schools 
does not come under our direct control, it is our 
privilege to assist in many ways those who have 
the work to do. 

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

It is with pleasure that I call your attention to 
our Public Library, for during the past year the 
city has received a most munificent gift in the 
Fowler Library Building. This much needed edi- 
fice was presented by AYilliam P. and Clara M. 
Fowler, as a memorial of their parents, Hon. Asa 
and Mary C. K. Fowler, who were fifty years resi- 
dents of this city. It has been given us under the 
most liberal provisions, with the earnestly expressed 
wish that the citizens of Concord would consider 
that they each have an ownership in it, and make it 
their literary home, to come and go, to sit and read 
in, at their pleasure. The building is beautiful in 
design and conveniently located, and the generous 
donors will ever be held in grateful remembrance 
by the large and increasing number of patrons who 
enjoy its privileges. I am sure we shall be glad to 



298 CITY OF CONCORD. 

indicate our high appreciation of this valuable gift, 
hy a liberal appropriation for maintaining and en- 
larging this already valuable library. 

It is claimed that the intelligence of a community 
can be as accurately jndged by the patronage given 
its public library as by the interest manifested in 
its schools. It certainly can be made a powerful 
assistant of the school. 

The control of the library is in the hands of a 
board of trustees, chosen from among our citizens, 
who have with much fidelity looked after its inter- 
ests in the past. The library is now positively free 
to all our people, and few of us, probably, realize 
the amount of work done there by our librarian, 
and the great demand for books. Its catalogues 
embrace valuable works of history, biography, 
science, art, religion, politics, agriculture, poetry, 
and fiction, for the mechanic, the farmer, the 
scholar, and the professional man. It is most im- 
portant that not only should there be a sufficient 
number of books to meet the present demand, but, 
also, that the trustees should be enabled to pur- 
chase additional books of such a character as will 
meet the progressive requirements of our intelli- 
gent reading community. 

Last year, the appropriation for the library was 
|3,000, which, added to the interest on trust funds 
and other receipts, amounted to $3,237.89. The 
trustees will need more money this year to meet all 
the changed conditions. More books will be re- 
quired, on account of the greater demand therefor. 
There will be an increased outlay for fuel, lights, and 



MAYOU'S ADDRESS. 299 

clerk hire, and no receipts from cards, the Ul)rary 
now being- free. I find they are needing some 
shelves, tables, and other articles for the proper 
care of the books, and for the convenience of the 
patrons. The library contains about 7,500 volumes, 
in a condition suitable for use ; and probably more 
than 2,000 of them are distributed to-day in our 
families. The circulation has increased about twen- 
ty-five per cent, each year since Jan. 1, 1885. 
Last December's report shows a circulation of 
7,500, an increase of 100 per cent, over the same 
month in the preceding year. Undoubtedly the 
new building has attracted some people who will 
not continue, but we may well count upon a per- 
manent increase of patrons. 

I learn from our efficient librarian, Daniel F. 
Secomb, that since the opening of the library in 
1854 it has received from all sources $39,437.89, 
the city contributing nearly $31,000. 

In estimating some of the future advantages of 
the new building, it may be interesting to know 
that the sum of $4,400 has been paid for rents of 
rooms used for library purposes since Jan. 1, 1876. 

We cannot, at this time, accurately determine 
the annual appropriation that will be necessary for 
conducting the library. So many changes have 
been made, as we have before suggested, that the 
present year must be an experimental one. We 
must do all that we can reasonably afibrd this year, 
in the way of improvements there, and another 
year we shall have a more definite idea as to its 
needs and requirements. 



300 CITY OF CONCORD. 

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 

The management of this department is in charge 
of a board of health, organized in 1886, which is 
doing excellent work; and it is of vital importance 
that it have onr continued support and the hearty 
cooperation of every individual in our city. 

I desire to call the special attention of every one 
to the reports of the Board of Health, the Health 
Officer, and the City Physician, as they contain 
information, suggestions, and recommendations of 
too much importance to be neglected, or carelessly 
read and thrown aside. We shall be convinced, 
after examining them, that the good work was not 
too early begun. 

I can include in this address only a few of their 
valuable suggestions, but I would particularly call 
your attention to their remarks in regard to the 
cai'eless disposition of rubbish and filth ; to the pre- 
vailing habit of dumping ashes upon our streets; 
to the pollution of natural water- and ice-supplies; 
also, to their recommendation for a more careful 
supervision of our sewers, Avhich they accompany 
with a mild suggestion that we show less business 
sagacity in caring for our large property interests 
in our sewers, than we do in the excellent care of 
our water- works. 

They also call our attention to the careless man- 
ner in which our streets are left by some who have 
occasion to dig them up; to the law in regard to 
fire-escapes on our buildings; to the condition of 
the "lobby;" also, to the City hosj^ital, with a 
reconmiendation that an ambulance be purchased, 



mayok's address. 301 

and located in some central place for the use 
of the police or fire department in conveying 
injured or sick persons to their homes or to the 
hospital. 

I am convinced that the appropriations of last 
year were judiciously expended, and would recom- 
mend that the same be continued this year for their 
regular work, with a small additional sum, if need- 
ed, for the special work of investigation in other 
cities, contemplated last year. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The general good condition that has character- 
ized our fire department still exists, and Ave can 
refer with much satisfaction to the high character 
of its members, the excellent condition of the appa- 
ratus, and the continued interest manifested by all 
connected with it for the best results. Certainly, 
no other department merits our continued encour- 
agement more than this. We should not forget 
that we are having the services of our best citizens 
at a moderate cost. 

During the past year two new fire-alarm bells 
have been purchased. One is hung in a tower 
erected near Jackson street, the other in the tower 
at the Central fire-station. This tower has been built 
ten feet higher for this purpose, and it is hof)ed 
that with these bells the fire alarms can be generally 
heard throughout the compact portion of the city. 

Various improvements have been made in the 
fire-stations during the past year: The Alert Hose 
Company's house on Washington street has been 



302 CITY OF CONCORD. 

enlarged, a new and commodious station at West 
Concord nearly completed, and a furnace put into 
the Good Will Hose Company's house on South 
State street. 

It is not expected that any new buildings or ex- 
tensive repairs will be required this season in this 
department. Some alterations and improvements 
are needed at the Good Will house, and a small 
appropriation will be necessary to complete the 
house at West Concord. The chief-engineer rec- 
ommends the purchase of 2,000 feet of hose ; and I 
ask your attention to his suggestion about exchang- 
ing some old hose-carriages and reels for new and 
lighter hose-wagons. 

POLICE. 

Our present police force consists of one city 
marshal, one assistant city marshal, and four reg- 
ular patrolmen and night-watch. There is also a 
numerous special force; and there has been organ- 
ized during the past year a uniformed squad of 
fifteen members. The expense of maintaining this 
department has been $7,399.77. 

During the past year City Marshal Connell, who 
had faithfully discharged the duties of the office 
for more than seventeen years, retired from the 
force on account of ill-health. Our present city 
marshal recommends an increase of our regular 
police force, and such an increase has also been 
demanded by many of our best citizens, who claim 
that portions of our city are unprotected. Were 
our present force increased by two men, it would 



mayor's address. 303 

then be much smaller than is usually employed in 
cities of this size. I would not object to a mod- 
erate increase of the patrolmen. Our present city 
ordinances require that the police be appointed and 
designated as night police and day police. I would 
recommend that the ordinances be so changed that 
om* whole police force may be appointed without 
being specially designated for day or for night 
service, leaving that matter for the chief of police 
and city marshal to arrange as they deem best for 
the interests of the city. 

We should exercise great care in the selection 
of our regular police officers, remembering that 
their value cannot always be determined by the 
number of arrests made. They should be men of 
such firmness and courage, combined with sound 
judgment, correct habits, and courteous and gentle- 
manly deportment, as will connnand the respect of 
the careless, or even the evil disposed, without an 
unnecessary exercise of force. 

"We should also avoid changes in this depart- 
ment, unless for good and sufficient reasons, its 
work being of such a peculiar nature that frequent 
changes would seriously impair the efficiency of 
the force. We should also exercise the same care 
in the selection of our special police. I know that 
their services are seldom required, but I believe 
that we should allow no man to walk up and down 
our streets clothed with authority to wear a police- 
man's badge, who does not possess the proper char- 
acter and other qualifications worthily to represent 
our city in this department. 



304 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The uniforming of our patrolmen has met with 
universal approval, and will doubtless be continued. 
The special squad organized during the past year, 
which has done escort and other duty in this city 
and elsewhere, has won the hearty favor of all, at 
home and abroad, by its gentlemanly bearing and 
excellent deportment. 

CITY BUILDEN^G. 

The matter of a new city building has often been 
considered by previous city governments, and sev- 
eral plans have been proposed for supplying what I 
consider some very urgent needs of the city. The 
building familiarly known as the " lobby," l^uilt 
many years ago for temporary use only, is still the 
only place we have for the brief detention of crim- 
inals, and for lodging those Avhose only fault i& 
poverty. I earnestly recommend that some plan be 
devised whereby this unsightly and unsuitable 
building be replaced by one better adapted to 
modern ideas of decency and humanity. 

It has been suggested that we dispose of our 
interest in the present city hall property, and build 
a new building in some central location, on a large 
and liberal plan, commodious enough to contain the 
needed city offices and halls, and in style similar to* 
those usually found in large towns and cities. It 
seems to me that any plan that could possibly be 
made in that direction would involve too great an 
expense to be undertaken at the present, or any 
near future, time. I would, hoAvever, urge for your 
early consideration the advisability of erecting up- 



mayor's address. 305" 

on the Warren street lot, now owned by the city, a 
building* of suitable dimensions for the accommoda- 
tion of the many city of&ces now rented in various 
scattered localities on our streets; also, to include 
a lobby for the detention of criminals, and for tem- 
porary lodgings for some that can have no other 
shelter. 

It seems to me that it could be built at an outlay 
which would be advisable, in the interests of econ- 
omy, in view of the large rentals now paid by the 
city. 

OLD CON^CORD EECOEDS. 

Last year the sum of five hundred dollars was 
added to the regular appropriation for printing, for 
the purpose of copying, indexing, and printing the 
early records of Concord; but, the appropriation 
having been exhausted before the matter was 
reached, it had to be postponed. Two old and 
much worn volumes, now in the hands of the city 
clerk, contain the only records of our city from 
1725 to 1748, and from 1766 to 1821. These being 
without index of any Idnd, and intermixed with 
other less important papers, their value for refer- 
ence is much lessened. The plan of the committee 
having the matter in charge was to have these rec- 
ords carefully copied, retaining their original spell- 
ing, classified, rearranged, and indexed by some 
competent person, and a sufficient number of copies 
printed to supply our state, city, and historical 
libraries, besides offering for sale such other copies 
as might be wanted. The sale of these extra cop- 
20 



306 CITY OF CONCORD. 

ies would, to a considerable extent, reimburse the 
city for the cost. I am informed that these records 
contain the original laying out of most of the old 
highways of the city. 

It seems to be very important that the old legal 
records of Concord be j^ut in some durable form 
for preservation.

It is generally admitted that a certain amount of 
alcohol and other intoxicating liquors is necessary 
for medicinal, mechanical, and other uses; if so, 
there should be a place where legal sales can be 
made for these purposes, conducted under such 
careful regulations that patrons may be reasonably 
sure of getting pure liquors. I would urge that 
liquor agents be under your constant supervision, 
and required to conform to the exact conditions of 
the laws, also to make regular reports to the board 
of mayor and aldermen as often as you may deem 
advisable. 



mayor's address. 307 

TEMPER AI^CE. 

The illegal sale of spirituous liquors has gener- 
ally been referred to in addresses of this sort, and 
honest and earnest efforts have undoubtedly been 
made for its suppression or control; but all such 
efforts have been confronted by some difficulties. 
We must expect similar annoyances. I trust, how- 
ever, that we may labor with such wisdom and 
firmness as to accomplish something of positive 
value and importance in the interests of temper- 
ance. 

It is a fact, generally conceded by thoughtful 
and candid men, that the prohibitory laws of our 
state cannot be as easily enforced as most of the 
other criminal laws. Evidence is not as cheerfully 
furnished, even by good citizens, in liquor prosecu- 
tions as in other cruninal cases. It is undoubtedly 
the duty of every citizen to assist in maintaining 
every law on our statute books, and he commits a 
great wrong when he neglects to do so; but we 
have to consider facts as they exist, and until our 
actions can be reinforced by a steady public senti- 
ment which will aid us in a full and complete 
enforcement of these laws, we shall not be able to 
do thorough work. 

The laws of the state and city must be our guide 
in all of our actions in this regard ; our success in 
their enforcement will be modified by the circum- 
stances hereinbefore stated. 

We must expect criticism, and even censure, in 
dealing with this unpleasant business, but as the 
responsibility will rest largely upon us, we must be 



308 CITY OF CONCOKI). 

allowed to work in our own way: hence we may 
not feel warranted in adopting all the methods that 
om* friends may suggest. Our intentions cannot 
be misunderstood, if we do the best we can in the 
circumstances as we know them. 

It is hoped that no one will expect to pursue this 
ungodly and illegal traffic within our borders un- 
molested. 

REAL ESTATE. 

The city now owns land situated on Warren, 
School, and Centre streets, west of Pine street, 
bought many years ago for the gravel banks it 
contained. The gravel has since been used on our 
streets, and the city derives but little income from 
the land at the present time. I Avould recommend 
that it be sold to those who will erect upon it good 
dwellings or other suitable buildings within a rea- 
sonable time, reserving enough land about the city 
store-house and sheds to accommodate all probable 
needs. Such an arrangement would in part repay 
the city for the original purchase, and would, I 
believe, result in the increase of taxable property 
within our borders. 

CEMETERIES. 

The work of improving Blossom Hill cemetery, 
according to plans adopted, was begun during the 
past year, and the committee ask for the usual 
appropriation for the continuation of the work. 

I have attempted to give only a hasty glance at 
the more prominent departments of our city, calling 



mayor's address. 309 

your attention to some of our apparent wants. 
These and other matters will come more formally 
before us as time progresses, when, I trust, we shall 
have a better knowledge of our nnuiicipal aifairs. 
Many perplexing problems will arise, and oftentimes 
we may find ourselves unable to give financial aid 
and encouragement to objects that really need our 
help. I urge that we practise the closest economy 
in all of our expenditures, consistent with a safe 
and progressive policy. You will all agree with 
me, that unless some unforeseen demand arises we 
ought to practise rigidly the " pay as you go " sys- 
tem, and the question of a " surplus " need not 
cause us any anxiety should we find ourselves at 
the close of the year with some unexpended balances 
in the different departments. 

Let us remember that we are the servants of the 
whole people of our city, and that the claims of the 
humblest citizen are entitled to our prompt and 
thoughtful consideration. 

We must sometimes expect criticism, even upon 
those measures we think most worthy of approval. 
This often arises from a misconception of the facts, 
or it may occur because public interests have been 
considered rather than private demands. Your 
fellow-citizens will only ask that you conduct the 
business of the city on those same correct, common- 
sense principles that you are accustomed to employ 
in the conduct of your own afi'airs, and with that 
economy in every detail that is necessary to suc- 
cess. 

I need only remind you that harmony in our 



310 CITY OF CONCORD. 

deliberations, and promptness in our attendance at 
all meetings, are of the utmost importance. 

My effort will be cheerfully and earnestly to 
execute the laws of our state and city, and your 
will, as it may hereafter be expressed; and to per- 
form all the other duties of my office in a manner 
that will, I hope, meet the reasonable expectations 
of all. 

In order that I may have a more accurate knowl- 
edge of the condition and requirements of our city, 
I earnestly solicit the kind advice and suggestions 
of my fellow-citizens.
