(Report of t^e TX^ater Commi00tonev0» 



To the City Council: 

The "Water Commissioners herewith present their report of 
the operations of the Water Department for the year 1889 : 

The construction account Jan. 1, 

1889, was $487,797.93 

Increase during the year, . . . 4,466.68 



■Cost of the works Jan. 1, 1890, . . 1492,264.61 

The receipts and expenditures for 1889 appear in the fore- 
going report of the superintendent in detail : 
■Gross receipts for 1889, . . . $40,237.53 

" 1888, . . . 38,441.32 

Increase for 1889. .... $1,796.21 

The actual increase for 1889 was $2,396.21 

Accounted for as follows : 

from the extension to Millville, . $92.55 

from the extension to Penacook, . 415.74 

from the compact part of the citv, 1,887.92 

2,396.21 

In anticipation of an increase of receipts 
the commissioners decreased the amount 
charged the water precinct for water 
for hydrant service, . . . 600.00 

Leaving the increase as stated above $1,796.21 

The increase of population in the city has required an exten- 
sion of the distribution and service pipes 6,110 feet, but 2,772 
feet of f and 1-inch pipe has been taken up, so that the actual 
increase is 3,338 feet. The commissioners have reason to 
expect that a similar increase will be required for 1890. 

The number of leaks during the year was fifteen, as against 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 109' 

eleven last year, but three of the leaks were caused by lightning, 
reducing the number to twelve from all other causes. 

In our report for 1888 we stated that there was a temporary 
indebtedness of $7,000. This indebtedness, with interest 
amounting to 240, has been paid from the earnings for 1889. 
leaving a balance on hand of $781.23. 

The pressure in the most elevated parts of the precinct is 
hardly sufficient to meet the requirements of the citizens resid- 
ing there, and properly to protect the property there located. 
The commissioners have had this matter under consideration, 
but as yet have not decided upon a plan. It is probable that 
some additional expenditure will be required for this purpose ia 
the near future. 

All of which is respectfully submitted,

joseph h. abbot,

Horse Hill bridge has been entirely planked and new stringers 
put in, as have also Twin bridge at Penacook and Borough 
bridge. 

While the Free bridge is practically safe for present travel, it 
is fast growing weaker, and should be replaced at an early day 
by a new one, as the present bridge cannot be repaired with 
economy. The iron bridge at East Concord has got to be en- 
tirely replauked and new stringers put in. 

It has been necessary to put in a great many new catch 
basins at Penacook the past season, which work will not have 
to be repeated for some time to come. 

The extensions of Walker street and Capitol street have been 
built the past year. 

The constant call for new streets, and the cost of building 
them, necessitates a considerable increase in the expenses each 
year. 

Respectfully submitted. 

DANIEL K. ABBOTT, 

Commissioner of Highways.

128 CITY OF CONCORD. 



REPOET OF THE COMMITTEE O^ 
SEWERS ANT> DRAI^^S. 



To the City Council: 

Your committee having in ciiarge the construction and care 
of the public sewers of our city would submit the following 
report for the year ending December 31, 1889 : 

Whole amount appropriated, . . $6,000.00 

Amount expended, .... 6,528.21 

Excess of expenditures over appropria- 
tions, $528.21 

An itemized account of the same will be found under the 
proper head in the precinct expenditures. It will be noticed 
that a little larger sum has been expended in this department 
than was done last year, rendered necessary on account of the 
unusual growth of our city and other pressing reasons for bet- 
ter sewerage in different localities. 

We have been able to construct the sewer that has been so 
long needed in the western part of the precinct, from Tahanto 
to Liberty street on Warren street, and from School to Orchard 
street on Pine street, thus relieving a large and populous sec- 
tion of the city that has long needed sewers, both for house 
drainage and for removing water from the streets, that could 
not before be done. 

We found the same difficulties and troubles existing at the 
south end " Brook Sewer" so called, near Water street, that 
had caused our predecessors so much annoyance, and how best 
to remedy it with the least expense so as to give permanent 
relief has been our aim. Plans that were considered feasil)le 
at first, were, upon further investigation, rejected as being likely 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 129 

to furnish only tempoian' relief. In the meantime your com- 
mittee decided to repair the break in the sewer by rebuilding a^ 
section of it of double thickness and putting in an overflow. 
While this cannot in any way remove the cause for complaint, 
it will, in case of a heavy rain-fall, instantly relieve the sewer 
of the tremendous strain, thus preventing another break, 'con- 
sequently a large expense to the city. For this reason your 
committee have deemed this advisable as a temporary arrange- 
ment, and, as we reported a few months since, we recommend 
that a survey be made and plans prepared for a system of sew- 
erage that would not only relieve the extraordinary pressure 
now made upon the present Brook sewer, but would also 
accommodate some portions of our city that cannot now reach 
the public sev/ers, viz., from the county jail and Odd Fellows' 
Home southerly to the Old Fair Ground so called. 

We have, agreeably to instructions, engaged engineers to 
make a survey of the section above described, and we hope to 
report plans for the same at an early day. This work seems to 
be of so much importance, that we recommend that early action 
be taken and an appropriation be made to enable us to build a 
sewer of suitable dimensions from some point on Allison street 
to the river, early the coming season. 

The Committee on Sewers and Drains for 1888, in their 
report, say that "the important matter will have to be consid- 
ered soon of extending the large brick sewer from the foot of 
Depot street to Main and thence up Warren to Spring street." 
The same necessity now exists, only in a greater degree, and 
should have our attention. 

The 20-inch main sewer at the north end of the precinct, 
running across the intervale near the shops of the New England 
Granite Co., has not one half of the capacity of the branch 
sewers discharging into it, consequently is not able oftentimes 
properly to convey to the river the increasing sewerage and 
drainage in that growing section of our city. Some plans based 
upon a survey should be adopted as early as may be, so that 
when work is commenced there it might be continued upon some 
definite plan that will embrace that whole district. 

During the year we have laid 3,972 feet of sewer pipe of all 
sizes, and have rebuilt a portion of the 30 by 36 brick sewer 



130 CITY OF CONCORD. 

uear Water street. An approximate cost of each line we have 
given below as near as practicable : 

Warren street, 596 feet 12-iuch pipe, 484 feet 10-inch 

pipe, 50 feet 6-inch pipe. 
Pine street between School and Warren, 500 feet 

lO-inch pipe, between Orchard and Warren 270 

feet 8-inch pipe, . • • . . . . $3,450.00 

School street, west of Pine, 185 feet 10-inch pipe, 350.00 

•Jackson street, 50 feet 8-inch pipe, . . . 35.50 

Kear of South Main street, 85 feet 10-inch pipe, 455 

feet 12-inch pipe, 624.00 

"Rear of Horse-Car stables, 312 feet 8-inch pipe, , 210.50 

Franklin street, 584 feet 12-inch pipe, 72 feet 10-inch 

pipe, 800.00 

South State street, 245 feet 10-inch pipe, . . 190.00 

Lyndon street, 84 feet 8-iuch pipe, . . . 48.00 

Repairing Brook sewer, ...... 490.00 

The variation in the amount of the subdivisions and the full 
sum expended arises from the many incidental charges for tools, 
teaming, surveying, sharpening tools, lumber, &c., that could 
not properly be assigned to any particular section. 

We have aimed to have the work done in a substantial man- 
ner and at as low a price as such work could be done. We 
have been unable to build all of the sewers petitioned for : 
these will come up for early consideration next spring. No doubt 
other sewers will be asked for, as new streets are opened and 
occupied with dwellings, so that liberal appropriations will 
probably be required to meet all of the reasonable demands.

EEPOET OF PEKACOOK SEWEK PRE- 

ciisrcT. 



To the City Council of Concord : 

The system of sewerage that was established, survej'ed, aud 
partially constructed last year has been further advanced the 
past summer, aud should be still further carried on until all 
parts of our village have the benefits of a complete sewerage 
system. Considerable extra and unlooked for expense was 
incurred in our work the past year, on account of a change in 
the plans for the Charles street sewer, made necessary by the 
strong objections to the making the Contoocook river, above 
the Contoocook Co.'s dam, the outlet of said sewer. This 
obliged us to relay the Warren Street sewer at greater depth 
and with larger pipe, and greatly increase the depth of the one 
on Charles street. But we believe the change was for the 
public good, and that the tax-payers of the precinct would will- 
ingly pay the increased expense rather than have aeother out- 
let in the compact part of the village, in comparatively still 
water. 

It was the intention to improve aud put in permanent shape 
the main outlet at the Merrimack river, and also the one on the 
north side of the Contoocok river. The stone has been pur- 
chased and delivered to l)uild a bulkhead at the former, aud 
pipe for the latter, to carry the sewage out into deep aud 
running water, but the wet season and early high water have 
prevented. This should be attended to at the first favorable 
opportunity. 

The following is the amount of pipe laid the past summer : 

High street, 520 feet 8 inches. 
Maple street, 320 feet 8 inches. 
Summit street, 56 feet 8 inches. 



132 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Union street, 326 feet 8 inches. 
Brook sewer, 225 feet 8 inches. 

Elm street, 254 feet 8 inches, and 114 feet 10 inches. 
Elm street to the Contoocook river, 300 feet 10 inches. 
Bye street to Summer street, 285 feet 8 inches. 
Summer street, 282 feet 8 inches. 
Cross street, 480 feet 8 inches. 
Spring street, 154 feet 8 inches. 
Charles street, east end, 125 feet 8 inches. 
Charles street, west end, 1,260 feet 10 inches.

PUBLIC LIRRARY. 135 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



KEPOET OF THE TEUSTEES. 

To the City Council : 

We beg to present to your honorable body the annnal report 
of the trustees of the public librar}^ 

The year 1889 has been, at times, full of surprises and 
problems, owing to the removal of the books to the new Fowler 
Library building and to the incidents attendant thereto. The 
first year brought a demand for books and other reading mat- 
ter that had not been provided for oi'* even thought of. At 
times the situation has been perplexing, but explanations on 
the part of the Librarian and his assistants demonstrated to the 
patrons the impossibility of always providing the books of one's 
choice. In many instances the books indicated on one's card 
could not be supplied owing to the limited number of books in 
the library. The supply of books is too limited for the public 
demand, and as this demand will grow every year, but one thing 
will meet the exigency, namely, the largest appropriation on the 
part of your honorable body consistent with public policy, so 
that the supply of books may meet the requirements of the day. 
The trustees were called upon to try the experiment of liberally 
ma'intainiug a public reading-room, where the leading newspapers 
and magazines could easily be attainable. The result has justi- 
fied the experiment. Its readers increase in number, and its 
popularity is assured. 

The reference-room, one of the most essential parts of any 
library, is constantly used by the teachei's and scholars of our 
schools, as well as by mature readers and those in search of 
special or encyclopaedic knowledge. To this department the 



CITY OF CONCORD. 



trustees have devoted much time and expended as much money 
as circumstances warranted. 

The public are interested in the welfare of the library, the 
outlay comes back to the people, the books belong to them : 
therefore, representing a population increasing in numbers and 
increasing in knowledge, we respectfully submit our report, con- 
fident that our immediate needs will be understood, and that 
measures will be adopted whereby our public library may be 
given strength to gain a proud standing in the laud. 
Respectfully,

agreement. 

The boxes of books have been carefully packed and promptly 
delivered at the library by Messrs. Gale and Cunningham. 

BOOKS PURCHASED. 

Eleven hundred and fifty volumes have been purchased, 
included in which are twenty-seven volumes of novels in the 
French language, selected by M. Piugault, which, with a few 
volumes of historical works presented by W. P. Fowler, Esq., 
have been placed on the shelves for the use of the patrons of 
the library. 

FISHERVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

Sixteen hundred volumes of various kinds were received from 
the Fisherville Public Library in September last. Of these, one 
hundred were worn out and worthless ; — of the remainder, three 
fourths were duplicates of books already in the library : many of 
these have been taken to replace books that were badly worn ; — 
two hundred of the remainder have been catalogued and placed 
on the shelves. 

There was also received with the library an imperfect file of 
the Official Gazette of the United States Patent Office from Jan- 
uary, 1873, to January, 1884, of which the part published 
between June, 1875, and January, 1879, will enable us to 
nearly complete our file of that valuable publication.

DONATIONS. 



Seven hundred books and pamphlets have been presented to 
the library from citizens of Concord, state and city officers, 
members of Congress, and the executive departments at Wash- 
ington. 

Nearly four hundred volumes of the above were the gift of 
William P. Fowler, Esq., among which was a nearly perfect file 
of the North American JRevieio from January, 1820, to January, 
1866, including nineteen bound volumes, the remainder being in 
the original quarterly numbers. 

This gift has recently been supplemented by the gift of 
another file of the same from January, 1806, to January, 1878, 
by Samuel C. P^astraan, Esq., making, with the numbers already 
in possession of the library, an almost unbroken file of the Re- 
view for seventy years.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH, 

To the City Council : 

In submitting to your notice our third annual report, we 
would again return our thanks for your most cordial support; 
and in behalf of our citizens it is a pleasure to assure you that 
the rules and regulations you have approved have been received 
with almost universal favor. 

The work of the board and its health officer is fairly well out- 
lined in the ordinances you have enacted, and which are but 
well defined provisions of our statute law. 

Our work may seem arbitrary to those whom it becomes nec- 
essary to admonish that they have failed to comply with the 
requirements of the law ; yet we submit there is no personality 
in our actions. 

All classes are treated alike. The service of our health offi- 
cer is free to all. His services can be secured by the rich and 
the poor, and he is ever ready to assist every one in bringing 
about the best possible conditions at the least possible trouble 
and expense. A health officer is a servant of the public, and, 
like any other police officer, has only in view the best interest 
of the city and the health of the people. 

In matters of this kind it is of great importance that every 
officer shall be strictly impartial in the administrative and exec- 
utive department of his labor ; and it is of equal importance 
that the same spirit shall be exhibited by the public. 

Personal animosities and neighborhood contentions have no 
place in the work of a health officer, nor should he be expected 
to be always on the watch for the possibility of local and neigh- 
borhood strife entering into and becoming a part of the reasons 
for a complaint. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 146' 

In all matters pertaining to the welfare of our city and the' 
health of our citizens the people should show themselves- siipe-' 
rior to personal, partisan, or sectarian selfishness; but, "with' 
malice toward none, with charit}' for all, with firmness in the 
right, as God gives us to see the right, let us finish the work we 
are in," trusting that our labors will continue to keep Concord 
in such sanitary condition that every one can point with honest 
and just pride to her hygienic position. 

Obviously it would be impossible to formulate rules and reg- 
ulations for the guidance and protection of the public health 
without an organized body charged with the execution of the 
same. Divided authority and the uncertain sounds of a multi- 
tude of counsellors will always result in a deplorable condition 
of affairs, whether it be in matters pertaining to health or to 
business. 

NEW HEALTH OFFICER. 

With the increased duties imposed upon the health officers, 
as determined by the city council last March, it became neces- 
sary for the board to secure the service of a practical workman 
to supervise the construction of service drains and sewers ; and 
we congratulate our citizens that we were able to obtain so effi- 
cient service as has been afforded by Mr. Henry A. Rowell, who 
has devoted his entire time to the sanitary work of the city since 
his appointment. 

In this connection the board would take occasion to recall 
your attention to the very efficient service of Mr. Rowell's pred- 
ecessor, Mr. Howard M. Cook, who did so much, during his two 
years of diligent and faithful labor, in laying out the work, mak- 
ing systematic inspections, formulating rules and blanks, and 
serving notices upon owners and occupants of buildings of the 
reforms required by the ordinances of the city as well as the 
statutes of the state.. 

Such systematic labor for two years rendered it possible for 
the present health officer to accomplish far greater and better 
results in the past year than would have been otherwise prac- 
ticable. 



146 CITY OF CONCORD. 



REPORT OF THE HEALTH OFFICER. 



We would respectfully invite your attention to the report of 
the health officer herewith appended, and to the recommenda- 
tions he suggests, all of which meets with the approval of this 
board ; and we would also make a further suggestion, in regard 
to drain-layers, that any one having been licensed to lay drains, 
and who shall disregard the requirements of the ordinance, in 
avoiding inspection of his work or failing to obtain a permit as 
prescribed, it shall be held as a good and sufficient reason for 
the Committee on Sewers and Drains to revoke said license. 

The board have good reason to assure the council that your 
effort to secure a personal supervision over our sewers and 
drains merits the approval of every citizen, elevates the san- 
itary standard of our city, and increases the value of our real 
estate. 

CITY BUILDING FOR POLICE PURPOSES. 

We would coogratultite the city upon the progressive move- 
ment that has been made during the past year towards securing 
a modern and approved building for the police department. 

It is a pleasure to note the work of the committee having this 
matter in charge, and to express the hope that the building so 
strongly condemned last year by this board and the police 
department will very soon become " a thing of the past." In 
the erection of a new and improved building we believe no one 
will ever regret the expense necessary to carry out a humane 
principle, even though it be for the temporary detention of those 
who are so unfortunate as to be the victims of a vice, or of the 
more perverse and hardened criminal. 

In this connection we would renew our suggestion of last 
year in relation to the city's duty to provide an ambulance to 
meet the many calls for such a means of conveyance for the 
sick, the helpless, and the injured. 

LIVERY AND OTHER STABLES. 

Early in the winter some of our stable-keepers submitted to 
your council a proposition to have the restrictions governing 
their premises so far removed as to allow them to keep hogs 
and pigs under their stables during the winter months. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 147 

The parties interested had a hearing before a committee of 
vour conucil, and the proposition was rejected. Your board of 
health believe this to have been a wise course, and to have been 
a decision the people will sustain. 

Let us ever be progressive, — make improvements everywhere. 
Let us make methodical and systematic changes, and we shall 
not find it necessary to retract or repeal rules and regulations. 
As our city increases in size and population, it will become 
necessary' to enact further rules and regulations, for, while a 
stable may not be considered actually unhealthy in the sense of 
producing disease, yet in all large cities the statute declares 
them to be a nuisance, and in many places even a license to 
erect and maintain a private stable is refused. 

In this connection the board would respectfully urge upon 
the council the necessity of a thorough reform in the stables of 
the Central Fire Station. The conditions required when this 
station was erected were not such as we would now recommend, 
and the committee and the chief of the fire department should 
be ordered to devise and encourage a new departure whereby 
this station and its stable shall not become a nuisance to the 
neighborhood. 

The rules and regulations you have approved to govern livery 
and other stables apply with equal force to the public property 
of the city ; and the conditions that would render a stable a 
nuisance in one part of the city must be subject to the same 
charge in another section, and ownership has nothing to do 
with the case. 

REGARDING DOGS. 

In the excellent report of our police department your atten- 
tion has been called to the complaints of our citizens about the 
unrestrained manner in which dogs are permitted to run at 
large. We believe this to be a matter that should receive your 
impartial attention, and the recommendations of the city mar- 
shal, or some other stringent regulations, should be adopted. 

Scarcely a physician in our city but can bear witness that 
many of our citizens are greatly alarmed every year in con- 
sequence of children and others being attacked by dogs, in the 
streets, upon the sidewalks, and in the yards of residents, and 
investigation generally fails to show any adequate provocation 



148 CITY OF CONCORD. 

on the part of the one injured- There should be something more 
than a small tax imposed as a restriction, for dogs, like other 
animals, should not be allowed to trespass beyond the limits of 
their owners' premises, and when found away from their homes 
should be treated in the same manner as horses, oxen, or a herd 
of cattle would be when found running at large upon another's 
premises. There is no more reason in allowing yards, lawns, 
and gardens to be entered upon and injured by dogs, than to 
have cattle roving about and destroying flowers, shrubs, and 
other property. It may be said that any person aggrieved can 
have recourse to the common law governing matters of dam- 
ages ; yet it is a well known fact that custom and courtesy have 
so long governed public opinion in this matter that for a man 
to have a dog case in court is generally regarded as only an- 
other form of showing his personal animosity. 

FIRE ESCAPES. 

In our report last year your attention was called to the law 
governing the construction of fire-escapes, and it was suggested 
that rules and regulations should be made that would* make it 
the duty of some one to see that the law was complied with ; 
but nothing has been done to render the law more effective. 
In fact, public buildings for school purposes are being erected 
without any means of escape, as contemplated by the state law 
and by a recent vote of the city council. It is well understood 
that the committee having the matter in charge have provided 
the usual means of entrance and exit, but no outside stairways 
have been constructed as contemplated by the state law of 
1883, and the action of the city council above referred to. 

Examples of this kind are not for the best interests of our 
city, for architects and others will be liable to regard the stat- 
ute as a dead letter until the servants of the city are made to 
comply with its provisions. 

The board awaited your action regarding the ap[)oiutment of 
a chief engineer of the fire department with a great deal of 
interest, as the employment of a competent person, who should 
give his entire services to its duties, would allow him to carry 
out the provisions of the law, and thereby protect the lives and 
property of our citizens. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 149 

GARBAGE. 

We believe the problem that will next confront the health 
department will be the question of what shall be clone with the 
garbage of our city, including all forms of waste and effete 
material. 

There is an ever increasing amount of waste i)roducts that 
must be removed. Individual effort is oftentimes of no avail, 
and combinations of a voluntary character among individuals 
having similar conditions to ov^ercome are only practical for 
short periods unless the voluntary action is merged into a cor- 
porate power ; therefore the individual should not object to a 
reasonable tax to support a system that would regularly take 
away from his premises the rubbish of all kinds that will nat- 
urally have to be removed in order to place his house and 
grounds in a hygienic condition. The average annual cost 
would probably be less than most citizens now pay for the car- 
rying away of ashes and other refuse that must be disposed of. 

The organization of a department to deal with this waste 
material is but a small matter, compared with the solution of the 
problem of what shall be done with the garbage when it shall 
have been gathered up by the city teams. We cannot throw it 
into the river, or dump it on vacant lots, without creating a nui- 
sance at some point, which is neither right nor desirable. 

Certain portions of garbage, when properly managed, have a 
commercial value. Such material as the leaves that come from 
our shade-trees, street sweepings, refuse from the catch-basins, 
mud from the gutters and pavements, when composted, have a 
value for fertilizing purposes ; yet the evolution of taking this 
matter from the streets and returning it to the soil requires an 
amount of capital invested in a plant that no business man 
would advise the city to expend. 

There is an immense quantity of ashes to be carted away that 
might be used to fill low ground, except that it is the custom 
for people to mix all kinds of animal and vegetable material 
with the ash heap. Such mixing of animal, vegetable, and 
mineral waste renders the whole mass offensive in hot weather. 

The problem is still unsettled, yet is being investigated by 
municipal and health authorities in many places. So far as we 
are able to judge from reports that have been published, it is 



150 CITY OF CONCORD. 

our opinion that some form of cremation eventually will offer a 
practical solution. 

WHAT CONSTITUTES A NUISANCE. 

The board or its members are oftentimes asked what consti- 
tutes a nuisance, and therefore it ma}' not be amiss to define 
the term. This would hardly be necessary were it not a fact 
that many people seem to regard it as one of their inherent 
rights to do what they please, so long as they do not trespass 
upon the domain of others. Very often such people seem to 
forget that there is any difference between the sanitary condi- 
tions of the town and the city. It does not occur to them that 
there must be vast differences in the social compact between the 
farm-house with its wide-spread acres, and the house-lot in the 
city that is measured in square feet, and that conditions that 
might constitute a nuisance in the one place might be of im- 
portance as a necessary adjunct of the other. 

Strictly speaking, any use of property annoying to another's 
rights is a nuisance. Still, two things are necessary, — a right 
and an injury. To illustrate : No matter how much your refined 
taste may be violated by the architectural structure of your 
neighbor's house, it is not a nuisance because no right is vio- 
lated. So one may not like the looks of a neighbor's pig-pen, 
still one can look the other way ; but so soon as that pig-pen 
gives off offensive odors, as it will in hot weather, it is a nui- 
sance, because every person has a right to pure air. 

The nuisance need not be injurious to health : it is enough 
that it is annoying and offensive to the senses. 

Most nuisances may be classified as violations of our right to 
pure air and pure water, the practical inference being that in 
the management of our own affairs we should not be unmindful 
of the rights of our neighbors ; and we would add that in no 
place can the golden rule be better applied than in matters 
relating to the sanitary conditions of local districts in a small 
city. 

CONCLUSION. 

In conclusion, your board would take this opportunity to 
urge upon all our citizens tiie importance of thorough sanita- 
tion. Not only observe the condition of one's own premises. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 151 

but it is well to pay some attentiou to the conditions existing 
in vacant lots, courts, alleys, and drive-ways used in common 
by several parties. Such places may not have any one espe- 
cially interested who will look after their hygienic state. Pure 
air, pure water, and a pure soil are prerequisites that every cit- 
izen has a right to expect, but such conditions can only be 
maintained by the united will of the people that this standard 
shall not be deteriorated by a want of harmony of thought and 
action. Let every person consider for a moment that as an 
elementary part of Concord's population it represents a corre- 
sponding part of her popular voice in a work of this kind. 

Sanitary reform is in no wise different from the progressive 
steps in every great and good work. Nothing of this nature 
ever outgrows or goes beyond the sentiment of the people. 
Enthusiasm on the part of a few who have given a great deal of 
time and thought to a subject must not be mistaken for the will 
of the people, who, for the want of proper information, may 
honestly differ upon very simple questions affecting the public. 

It is as useless in sanitation as it is in any other social prob- 
lem, to get so far in advance of public opinion as to have a reac- 
tion. An enthusiasm leading to such results will sooner or later 
receive a rude shock, for people are not inclined to give a uni- 
versal acceptance to any one's theory of reform until they 
become educated and familiar with its principles. Then they 
become the exponents of public sentiment, and demand a 
reform with a force evolved from public opinion ; therefore, no 
one can meet it with indifference. At the present time the 
press is placing before the people a great deal in the way of 
sanitary information, and we may confidently expect public 
sentiment to keep pace with the reforms necessary to keep our 
city in as healthy a condition as is possible. Therefore it surely 
behooves us to keep the matter of the future hygienic state of 
our city ever in mind, as ours is a government by the people 
and for the people, while we are but the servants of the public 
for a public trust.

REPORT OF THE HEALTH OFFICER. 



To the Board of Health : 

Gentlemen : The health officer herewith submits the report 
of the affairs of his office from the time when he assumed his 
duties on May 1, 1889, to the end of the year, December 31, 

1889.

From the foregoing it will be seen that the number of com- 
plaints brought to the attention of the office would average more 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 153 

than one for each day iu the year ; but every case has received 
its fair consideration. 

A large majority of the complaints were proved to be well 
founded, and wherever a nuisance was found to exist its abate- 
ment was ordered at once. It is a pleasure to be able to add 
that in most cases the parties responsible readily complied with 
the orders of the health officer, and immediately provided for 
the correction of the objectionable matters brought to their 
notice — a fair indication that the public desire to sustain the 
officers in their efforts to enforce the ordinances relating to 
public health. 

SANITARY INSPECTIONS. 

The system of regular inspections for the purpose of ascer- 
taining the sanitary condition of the entire compact portion of 
the city has been continued, and considerable progress has 
been made in tabulating and arranging for reference the infor- 
mation thus gained. This work has included the inspection of 
271 private dwelling-houses, 
306 tenement-houses, 
41 stables, 

7 meat-markets, 
11 store cellars, 
2 hotels, 
10 business blocks, 
making a total of 648. There have also been 364 inspections 
of premises, which have been previously examined, for the pur- 
poses of determining whether the orders and, suggestions of the 
officer have been heeded, and for the investigation of new 
sources of complaint. As a result of investigations in partic- 
ular cases, and of information gained by regular inspections, 
there have been issued from this office 466 formal notices em- 
bodying the orders and suggestions of the board in cases of 
the following nature : 

Abatement of nuisances, ..... 78 



Cleaning of vaults and privies. 
Providing water-closets. 
Connecting with publi-c sewers, 
Removal of hogs, 



92 
112 
163 

21 



154 CITY OF CONCORD. 

There have been 134 cases in which vaults and privies have 
been removed and water-closets substituted, and 75 additional 
water-closets have been provided within the sewer district. 
These closets have been set in the following classes of build- 
ings : 

Private dwellings, ...... 67 

Tenement-houses, ...... 123 

Business blocks, ...... 17 

Hotels, 2 

The number of families supplied would be in excess of this 
number, as it is not uncommon in tenement-houses to find two 
or more families with but one water-closet.

cians in each month since Mav 1 , as follows :

Of the above cases reported, two deaths resulted, one being 
an infant, from diphtheria, and one adult, from typhoid fever. 
Wherever the physician in attendance has suggested a possibil- 
ity of the disease being chargeable to unsanitary conditions, 
investigation has been instituted, and the parties responsible 
have been required to make such changes and improvements as 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 155 

seemed necessary. Investigations in these and other cases 
have revealed the fact that many cases have existed, and prob- 
ably others do exist, where the only tra,p used as a guard for 
connection with the public sewer has been situated in the pipe 
outside the house. This is believed to be a dangerous omis- 
sion, as the house pipes are liable in time to become charged 
with noxious gases which can escape directly into the dwelling. 
To this error is undoubtedly chargeable many of the throat 
troubles which afflict women whose work requires frequent 
standing at the sink where the poisonous gases constantly rise. 
In all cases, a soil-pipe at least four inches in diameter should 
be carried from the sewer-pipe in the cellar upward through the 
roof of the house ; and if this were made an absolute require- 
ment by the health ordinance, there would be far less risk of 
contagious diseases. Cases have been found where the small 
lead pipes from the house have been inserted in the end of the 
large sewer-pipe in the cellar, with no attempt to close the open- 
ing from the sewer-pipe. As a result, the cellar must naturally 
become filled with sewer gases, which eventually find their way 
through the floors to the rooms above. A more offensive, if 
not more dangerous, result follows the stoppage of the sewer, 
when its filthy contents are discharged directly into the cellar ; 
but even then the danger is not fully realized, as is shown by 
the fact that in some cases a considerable time has been allowed 
to elapse before the difficulty has been remedied. If no care 
is exercised, the stoppage of a sewer-pipe may easily occur, 
especially where a "• slop-basin" is used. 

The interior of the pipe becomes coated with the greasy sub- 
stances in the sink-water, and the coffee grounds, vegetable 
peelings, bits of dishcloth, and other materials adhere to this 
until the opening is entirely closed. A noteworthy case of this 
kind was seen by the health officer where a six-inch pipe was 
completely filled, like a candle-mould, for four feet in length, 
the most of its contents proving a want of care in allowing mat- 
ters to go into the pipe which should have been burned or 
buried. Cases have also occurred where the stoppage was 
directly attributable to the malicious acts of individuals, as 
where a full sized lobster was found in the pipe, and where a 
quart bottle had been inserted through a T. 



156 CITY OF CONCOKD. 

Only one case of impure well water has been found ; but in 
that case an investigation revealed the startling fact that two 
sinks emptied their slops into a rotten plank drain running 
within six feet of the well. Tliat sickness existed in the fam- 
ilies using the well was a natural consequence, as the analysis 
of the water by Prof. Angell, to whom a sample was sent, 
proved it to be unmistakably polluted with sink drainage. The 
well was ordered to be abandoned, and the premises have since 
been connected with the city water-works. 

SEWER CONNECTIONS. 

In accordance with the city ordinance, the sanitary oflicer has 
endeavored to [)rovide for the enforcement of all the regula- 
tions relating to sewers and drains. It has consumed a great 
deal of time, but illustrations have not been wanting to show 
the necessit}' for oversight on the part of some municipal officer. 

A few cases have occurred where parties, through ignorance 
or wilfulness, have attempted to make connections with the 
main sewer without a permit, but in every case they have been 
made to conform to the regulations as soon as the fact became 
known. Severe measures have been avoided, when possible 
otherwise to accomplish the desired results ; but it may at some 
time be advisable to make an example of any one who know 
ingly ignores the health ordinances in this regard. In one case 
a man was found to be laying a sewer-pipe from his cellar to 
the main sewer, with the end of the pipe at the cellar lower 
than at its connection. In another case, a pipe being laid from 
&. cesspool to the sewer was found to have its sewer connection 
high enough to have turned the stream from the sewer directly 
into the cesspool. Of course such mistakes are corrected, but 
they might not be until after much harm was done, did not the 
inspecting officer discover it. 

There have been 118 permits granted to make connections, 
and most of these have been directly inspected by the health 
oflicer, and such changes and additions made at the time as 
were required to complete them properly' and satisfactorily. 

It is recommended that such change be made in the city 
ordinances as will place the granting of permits to enter the 
sewers within direct control of the ins[)ecting officer in order 



IIKALTH UEPARTMKNT. 157 

that he may be informed in ample season to be enabled to make 
inspection as occasion may require. As the permits are now- 
issued by the Committee on Sewers and Drains, it is not always 
practicable in the busy season to notify the officer of every per- 
mit so as to give him proper opportunity to make examination 
before the work is too far advanced. 

As a rule, the drain-layers licensed by the city council have- 
properly attended to their duties, and have worked in harmony 
with the health officer in inviting proper inspection. It becomes, 
necessary, however, to report tlie case of one individual who 
holds a license, who has persistently disregarded the require- 
ments of the ordinances, and has apparently avoided any 
inspection of his work. This may arise from an assumption 
that his work does not need inspection, but of that the inspector 
should be allowed to be the judge, but it is hardly possible 
when it is discovered repeatedly that lateral sewers have been 
laid and completed before the permit has been asked for. Such 
action is demoralizing, and makes a grievance for other licensed 
drain-layers who desire to observe the regulations. 

The inspections which have been made of lateral sewers con- 
nected to the main sewer have been as follows, tlie material 
being Akron pipe in all cases : 
Length of 6-inch pipe, 1595 feet. 

'' 5 " 4303 " 

" 4 " 2.54 " 

'^ 3 " 52 " 

making a total of 6204 feet as used in 86 different lat- 
eral sewers, — an average of about 72 feet each. 

The premises thus provided with sewer connections furnisli 
lateral sewers for 

66 private dwellings, 
72 tenements, 

4 school-houses, 

5 stores, 

6 stables, 

2 meat-markets, 

1 hot-house, 

1 photograph room. 



158 CITY OF CONCORD. 

aud 39 of the above have beeu connected with new houses 
erected during the year. 

A part of the sewers referred to have been laid at Penacook, 
witliin the new sewer precinct .there, and the fact that 42 sewer 
permits have ah-eadv been granted in that village shows a gen- 
eral appreciation of the great improvement. 

In six cases plank and cement pipe drains have been taken 
up in various part& of the city and replaced by Akron pipe. 

At the suggestion or order of the board of health, there have 
been abandoned and discontinued during the current year, — 

30 cesspools, 
51 surface drains, 
10 old wells used as cesspools, 
7 drains discharging under stables. 

A considerable sum has been expended in extending the 
main sewers to localities where needed, as will be seen by the 
report of the Committee on Sewers and Drains, and a consid- 
erable section is thus permanently provided with drainage facil- 
ities. 

The extension of Warren street sewer from Tahanto street to 
Liberty street provides sewer accommodations for sixteen pri- 
vate houses now erected, of which thirteen have already con- 
nected. 

The Pine street extension from Orchard to School street pro- 
vides for nine dwelling-houses, of which five have already con- 
nected. 

The Franklin street extension to High street provides for fif- 
teen houses, seven of which have made connections, aud there 
have been eight connections to the new sewer in the rear of the 
east side of South Main street, besides others of less number in 
other localities. 

From the foregoing statement of the business transacted in 
connection with this office it will be seen that the duties of the 
sanitary officer are varied in character, but all intended to pro- 
mote and encourage progress in providing for the health and 
safety of the public. 

An equable temper and much self-control are required in deal- 
ing with many of the persons whose attention is called to an 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 159 

infraction of tlie law, especiall}' where a suspicion exists that 
some individual has entered a complaint. Every effort has been 
made to enforce the laws with as little friction and hard feeling 
as possible, and in most instances it is believed that such efforts 
have been crowned with success. 

For the uniform support and assistance extended to the offi- 
cer by the members of the board of health, he returns his most 
grateful acknowledgments. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HENRY A. ROWELL, 

Sanitary Officer. 



160 CITY OF CONCORD. 



KEPOET OF THE CITY PHYSICIAN. 



To the City Council : 

The services of the City Physician, for the year ending Jan- 
uary 1, 1890, have been required as follows : 

Whole nunaber of visits made, .... 116 
Prescriptions given at office, .... 6 
Obstetric cases attended, ..... 1 

Nothing ha^ occurred in connection with these duties worthy 
of special mention, unless it may be of interest to state that na 
ease of any of the so called contagious diseases has been treat- 
ed, which fact we may no doubt largely ascribe to the faith- 
ful work of our health department. 
Respectfully submitted, 

E. A. CLARK, M. D., 

City Physician.

Arrests made by special officers. 

Assisted in making arrests by special officers, 

I would most respectfully suggest that the Police Depart- 
ment requires a police wagon, one that can convey six or eight 
persons, and suitable for use as an ambulance in case of 
accident or death. Frequently we are obliged to crowd two 
officers and three arrests into a small wagon, and in such a 
cramped condition it is quite difficult to handle an ugly, fighting 
"drunk," besides incurring danger to the officers by being 
thrown from the carriage. It could be kept without expense, 
and might save an accident of a serious nature. 

Since my last report, arrangements have been made at West 
Concord for locking up prisoners, which has proved very con- 
venient ; and I would again recommend the same arrangement 
be made at East Concord, with telephone attached, which 
would assist this department, and, in case of fire, would be of 
great service to the public. 

VICIOUS DOGS. 

I will again call your attention to the dog question. Shall 
our citizens have any protection from vicious animals ? You 
are no doubt familiar with the many complaints from people 
who have been attacked by dangerous dogs. If an ordinance 
could be passed requiring owners to keep such dogs on the 
chain, or dispose of them, it would be an act of safet}' towards 
protecting our citizens who are obliged to pass where this class 
of dogs are kept. 

EFFICIENCY OF THE FORCE. 

The force is efficient and well disciplined, notwithstanding it 
is smaller in proportion to the population than any other city in 



212 CITY OF CONCORD. 

this state. The preservation of order and the suppression of 
crime will compare favorably with any city. 

This report shows that this department has not been idle. 
AVhen the amount of territory covered and the distance travelled 
are considered, a better idea is given how industrious the officers 
have been. I know of no Police Department that has worked 
harder than the Concord officers for the past year, and I take 
pleasure in thanking each officer for his courteous treatment 
and his hearty cooperation in all the duties pertaining to this 
depai'tment. 

In conclusion, I wish to extend to His Honor Stillman Hum- 
phrey, the mayor and chief of police, and your honorable body, 
ray sincere thanks for the considerate treatment received at your 
hands. To the citizens who have sustained the force by their 
influence, and to the reporters who are always on the alert, and 
to Harry G. Sargent, city solicitor, for the prompt and efficient 
aid he has given, this department are under many obligations. 

G. SCOTT LOCKE, 

City Marshal.

CITY SOLICITOR. 215 



KEPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council : 

At the date of ray last annual report there were two cases 
pending in the supreme court in which the city was interested 
as a party. One of these cases. Concord against the Concord 
Horse Railroad, was decided at the March Law term, 1889, and 
the position taken by counsel for the city was sustained. The 
temporary injunction against the railroad was made permanent. 
Since that time the railroad has complied with its charter as 
construed by the court, and applied to the mayor and aldermen 
to locate the turn-out which was complained of, and the same 
has been properly laid out and located. 

In the case of Haskell v. Concord^ which has been referred to 
Hon, Jeremiah Smith, of Dover, a view of the premises where 
the alleged injury occurred has been taken, and the final hear- 
ing of the case will soon be concluded. At the present time 
there are several suits pending in the supreme court in which 
the city is interested as a party. Two of these — the suit of 
Lowell Eastman and the suit of Nancy L. Button — are claims 
for damages to real estate which has been taken by the city for 
highways. Under the statute these cases will be tried by the 
county commissioners. The suit of the Amoskeag Manufactur- 
ing Company is an action brought for an abatement of taxes 
assessed on their land and water-power in Concord, which has 
been paid b}' them under protest. The matter has been re- 
ferred by the supreme court to a board of three commissioners, 
consisting of Hon. E. G. Eastman and Winthrop N. Dow, of 
Exeter, and Joseph Barnard, of Hopkinton. A hearing has been 
commenced, and will soon be completed. 

The actions of John C. Smith against Concord, and Maria 
Harrison against Concord, are brought to recover for injuries 



216 CITY OF CONCORD. 

caused by alleged defects in the highway. In the Smith case 
the damages claimed are $1,000, and the defect is alleged to 
have been caused by the track and motor of the Concord Horse 
Railroad. The Horse Railroad have assumed in connection with 
the city the defence of the suit, and if any verdict is recovered 
against the city, which I do not anticipate, it will be paid by 
the Horse Railroad. 

In the Harrison case damages are claimed in the sum of 
$10,000, and the case will be in order for trial at the next April 
term of the supreme court. 

In October, 1889, certain parties who had purchased the Cen- 
tral House, on Centre street, attempted to build an additional 
story in the night-time, without the permission of the mayor and 
aldermen, thereby violating the provisions of the city ordinance 
establishing a fire precinct. On complaint of the board of fire 
underwriters the mayor immediately caused proceedings to be 
commenced, and the supreme court granted a temporary injunc- 
tion against the proprietors of said building. Subsequently said 
proprietors made a proper application to the mayor and alder- 
men for permission to construct said additional story, which 
was granted, and on payment of costs by the proprietors the 
injunction was dissolved. 

Numerous claims against the city for injuries caused by 
alleged defects in the highways are continually being presented, 
and as the number and length of the streets continue to in- 
crease, the number of such claims are not likely to decrease in 
the future. In these cases it is very important for the interest 
of the city that all the facts and circumstances surrounding 
each case should be ascertained while fresh in the minds of the 
parties who have any knowledge in relation thereto. It not 
infrequeutly happens that parties file claims against the city 
nearly six mouths after the injury complained of occurred. In 
such cases it is manifest that the city labors under a serious dis- 
advantage in investigating the merits of the case, or in prepar- 
ing to defend against the same. I would therefore recommend 
that the commissioner of highways, or some other proper officer, 
be instructed to investigate all the facts in connection with any 
accident occurring in the use of the higliways in the city as 
soon as the same comes to his knowledge from anv source, 



CITY SOLICITOR. 217 

whether any claim is filed against the city or not, and immedi- 
ately thereafter report such facts to the city solicitor, with the 
names of any persons whom he shall find to have any knowl- 
edge in relation thereto.

Solicitor.

WHITE PARK. 221 



REPOET OF THE PARK COMMISSIONT]RS. 



To the City Council: 

The Park Commissioners beg leave to submit this their first 
annual report. 

At a meeting of the board held early in the summer it was 
decided, in order to fulfil the agreement made by the city upon 
the acceptance of White Park from the donor, Mrs. Nathaniel 
White, that work should be commenced at once. 

In the absence of a definite plan, it was decided that the 
work done should be confined to the removal of the most un- 
sightly features of the ground in order that a better and more 
comprehensive study could be made for a plan, which the com- 
missioners felt was the first step that should be taken, that the 
work might be pursued with the best results. 

The work the past season, excepting the careful preserva- 
tion of the fine springs upon the ground and the construction of 
an artificial pond, has been preparatory to more complete work 
in the future. The services of Mr. Charles Eliot, of Boston,^ 
Mass., a prominent landscape architect, were secured later in 
the season to make surveys and plans of the ground, and sub- 
rait the same to the commissioners. 

A preliminary plan was prepared and submitted by Mr. Eliot, 
who is now at work perfecting same, and it will soon be laid 
before the commissioners for their final consideration. It is 
intended to show that the grounds can be developed year by 
year, and thereby, with small expense, make this a beautiful 
and attractive spot. 

It will be seen by the report given elsewhere, that the com- 
missioners had, as available funds at the beginning of the year, 
$4,200, to which has been added the amount of the city appro- 
priation, $1,000, for 1889, and from interest and other sources 
S242.96, making A total of So, 442. 96. There has been expended 



222 CITY OF CONCORD. 

for laboi- upon the grounds, and for incidentals during the year, 
$1,838.84, leaving a balance of $3,604.12. 

The commissioners feel assured that no mistake is being made 
in the development of White Park, and thus offering to our cit- 
izens, by its close proximity, the rare enjoyment of a " wood- 
land park, with the shade of its dense canopy of trees as cool 
and refreshing, and with springs of water as abundant and pure, 
as can be found elsewhere in the state," making it a valuable 
acquisition to our city ; they therefore respectfully ask that an 
appropriation be made for the coming year.

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE 

FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF BLOSSOM HILL 
CEMETERY. 



To the City Coxincil : 

The special committee for the improvement of Blossom Hill 
cemetery respectfully submit the following report for the year 
ending December 31, 1889 : 

The work of the past season has been a continuation of the 
front wall. Beginning at the south line of the approach to the 
proposed gateway entrance, the wall has been extended on the 
line of the street a distance of about 615 feet to the south-east 
corner of the enclosure, at an expense, including surveys, of 
S2,719.80. A corner post of suitable design at this boundary 
point will complete the wall south of the approach to the gate- 
way, unless the city should determine to enlarge the grounds 
somewhat by the purchase of an additional strip of land south- 
erly, toward Penacook street, to straighten and improve the 
south line — a suggestion which has received some consideration 
from the committee, but upon which proposition no recommen- 
dation has as yet been agreed upon. It is presumed the city 
will lower the grade of Rumford street at an early day to cor- 
respond with the height of the wall as established by the en- 
gineer, which will improve the appearance of the grounds from 
that direction. 

The work has been done by J. R. McDonald, under the direc- 
tion of the sub-committee, and the wall is believed to have been 
laid in a thoroughly substantial manner. The grading required 
for the laying of the wall has been done under contract with 
Blown & Abbott and E. H. Runnells. The necessity for a 
general levelling of and bringing to grade the inequalities of 
tlie surface for a varying number of feet back from the line of 
the completed wall and almost its entire length is an urgent 
16 



242 



CITY OF CONCORD. 



one, but little cau be done in this direction at present without 
an increased appropriation. 

Details of expenditure will be found in the report of the 
treasurer. 

There still remains to be built about 350 linear feet of front 
wall, to extend northerly that section laid in 1888, from the 
point where it was left uncompleted to the north-east corner of 
the cemetery, where another ornamental post to correspond 
with that at the other corner will be required. These posts will 
also correspond in general design with the work of the arched 
gateway proposed. In addition to this the approaches to the 
main gateway should be constructed the coming season. This 
will require about 70 feet of curved (convex) wall on each side 
of the entrance way, or a total of 140 feet. This will presum- 
ably be somewhat more expensive to build than the straight 
wall. Definite plans should also be made for the arched gate- 
way. 

Your committee renew the hope expressed in a former report 
that some individual or number of individuals may contribute 
the means for erecting a memorial gateway that shall serve as 
an enduring tribute to the memories of the departed, and evi- 
dence the tender love and generosity of the donors. 

Whilfr your committee do not feel disposed to unduly urge 
upon an already burdened city the necessity for an increased 
appropriation for this work of improvement, they regret that it 
does not progress more rapidly ; that the date of its completion 
at the rate now followed must be considerably remote. Do we 
realize that this now hallowed spot was consecrated thirty years 
ago ; that since that time a generation has passed away ; that 
of the committee who made the selection, all but one ; that five 
of the six clergymen who participated in the exercises of con- 
secration, and the mayor who presided on that occasion, are 
now numbered with the silent ; that within this sacred enclos- 
ure repose the remains 'of between four and five thousand of 
our much loved dead, endeared to us by the tenderest and 
most holy memories ; that the time is not far distant when this 
silent city of the dead may outnumber the city of the living ; 
that while in the latter so many pleasing evidences of thrift 
abound, this resting-place of those who made our city so comely 



CEMETERIES. 243 

aud attractive, and sanctified these homes of ours, is still in a 
condition (surrounded here aud there by remnants of unshapely 
aud tumbling pasture wall) hardly compatible with our love? 
While the expenditure of individual means for the adornment 
of private enclosures has been liberal aud tasteful, surely the 
appropriations of the municipality for the improvement of its 
general appearance have been by no means lavish or excessive. 
When this measure, the improvement of the cemetery, was be- 
fore the former city council, one of its members and one from 
an outlying ward urged the appropriation of a sufficient sum to 
speedily complete the needed improvements, and distribute over 
a short term of years the paj'ment of the debt incurred. That 
suggestion may not, perhaps, be unworthy of consideration at 
this time. 

Respectfully submitted : 

JOHN C. ORDWAY, 

Secretary of the Committee.

REGULATIONS OP THE CONCORD PRECINCT 
FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

ADOPTED BY 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 mcomplete line of hose laid 
out from a hydrant or steamer, shall attach to and lengthen out such 
line in lieu of laying a line of its own. 

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

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

Art. 4. No company shall take possession of a hydrant or reservoir, 
unless their hose and apparatus for attaching to the same are at hand and 
ready for use. The company which shall be thus ready shall be entitled 
to such hydrant or reservoir ; but, upon the order of an engineer, another 
company may attach a second line of hose from such hydrant or steamer, 
in case the same may be necessary, such company having first laid its 
hose, and being ready to attach the same. 

Art. 5. No engineer shall interfere with or attempt to give orders 
relative to the location or use of a line of hose when he has ascertained 
that another has command of it, unless by consent of the engineer in 
charge of it, or by orders of the officer in command at the fire ; and it 
shall be his duty to inquire whether there is an officer in charge. 

Art. 6. In proceeding to, working at, or returning from fires, noisy 
demonstrations are strictly prohibited, and it is required of officers of 
companies to maintain perfect order and decorum in their respective com- 
mands during all such service. 
17 



258 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Art. 7. No company, while returning from a fire, will be allowed to 
proceed faster than a walk, and it must at all times keep on the right of 
the street. Drivers are strictly enjoined, in proceeding to a fire, to use 
the utmost care and caution consistent with promptness. Racing between 
companies is forbidden under any circumstances. Any collision or 
casualty occurring to horses or apparatus will be considered a sufficient 
cause for the suspension of the driver in charge at the time. 

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

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

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



RULES FOR DRIVERS. 

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

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

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

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

of the street. 

District 2. Embraces all between School and Washington streets. 

District 3. Embraces all between Pleasant and School streets. 

Districts 4 and 5. Embrace all south of Pleasant street. 

The first figure of the box number will indicate the district.

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 proceed 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, 23, and 26 will not 
be responded to by Good-Will Hose until signalled. They will be gov- 
erned 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. 261 

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 steelj. 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, Mass.
