REPOKT OF COMMITTEE 0]S^ FIINTANCE. 



The books of the city treasurer have been examined, and com- 
pared with those of the city clerk, by the Committee on Finance, 
and all the accounts are found to be correctly kept, with proper 
vouchers on file for all payments. All the bills allowed by the 
Committee on Accounts and Claims have been paid, and no 
claims against the city which the city would be liable to pay are 
known to remain outstanding, with the exception of those men- 
tioned under the heading of unfunded debts ; and the balance 
in the hands of the treasurer is forty-one thousand sixteen dol- 
lars and thirty cents ($41,016.30).

KEPOKT OF AVATEE COMMISSIOIS^EES. 



To the City Council : 

The Board of Watei' Commissioners respectfully present 
their report for the year ending December 31, 1890 : 

The foregoing statistics are taken from the report of the- 
superinteudeut to the board, and show the income and expenses, 
of the water works during the year, and the improvements and 
extensions that have been made. It will be noted that the 
works have been self-sustaining, and that there is a balance of 
earnings amounting to $6,233.45. In other words, the income- 
has been. sufficient to pay the expenses of maintenance, the cost or 
new distribution and service pipes laid during the year, amount- 
ing to $7,701.89, and the interest upon the water-works debt., 
and to leave the balance above named. This income accrnea, 
from water rates, that are lower than the rates in most places of 
the same size as ours. The income of this year is $1,895.8& 
larger than the previous year, showing a good growth in the 
compact parts of the town. 

In our last report attention was called to the low pressure xm 
the more elevated parts of the city, and to the necessity of im- 
proving the works so as to remedy this defect. The board have- 
had the matter under consideration during the year. We em- 
ployed Mr. Percy M. Blake of Hyde Park, Mass., a civil engi- 
neer skilled in the construction of water-works, to advise about, 
the matter. After giving the subject careful attention and con- 
sideration, he made a report to the board, advising the pumping: 
of water from Long pond to a reservoir located upon some con- 
venient elevation, like that lying between Franklin and Peuacoolc. 
Streets, and the distribution of the water by gravity from suchi. 
reservoir. This report was published in pamphlet form and 
distributed to the citizens in May last, and it is unnecessary to- 
refer to it more at length here. 



120 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Soon after this investigation was made our attention was 
called to Walker's pond in Webster. It was claimed in behalf 
of this pond that water can be supplied to our citizens from it 
by gravity, without a very much larger outlay of expense than 
would be required to establish a pumping plant with its appur- 
tenances for transferring water from Long pond to a reservoir 
located upon an elevated site, and to secure the additional water 
rights required in connection with it. The board now have 
this matter under investigation, and are not prepared at this 
time to recommend a plan for overcoming the weakness of our 
present system. 

It is evident that something must be done at an early date, 
and that it will require a considerable expenditure of money. 
As soon as a conclusion is reached, the plan will be submitted, 
and the city councils will be asked to raise and appropriate the 
necessary funds to carry it into effect. 

We expect, when the outstanding six per cent, water bonds 
mature in 1892, 1894, and 1895, that they can be refunded at 
the rate of four per cent, or less. If so, the debt can be in- 
creased nearly $200,000 without increasing the interest charge. 
The present prospects of the city certainly warrant the expecta- 
tion that the income of the works will increase from year to 
jear as it has in the past. In short, we believe that the re- 
quired additions can be made to the works without materially 
increasing the burdens of the citizens.

All of which is respectfully submitted as supplementary to the 
report, by

CITY OF CONCORD. 141 



EEPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 0:N^ 
SEWERS AISTD DRAII^S. 



To the City Council : 

The Committee ou Sewers and Drains would respectfully sub- 
mit their report for the year ending December 31, 1890 : 

Regular appropriations for sewers and 

other amounts to this department, $5,078.00 

Amount expended, .... 3,929.65 

Balance unexpended, ...... $1,148.35 

Special appropriation for "• South End" 

sewers $12,000.00 

Premiums on bonds sold, and interest, . 390.00 



$12,390.00 

Amount expended, ...... 3,543.24 



Balance unexpended, $8,846.76 

It will be seen, by referring to an annexed table, that we 
have been able to build about 4,582 feet of sewers on the gen- 
eral account, supplying the larger portion of those petitioned for, 
and have also repaired some of the existing sewers, as needed, 
yet leaving quite an unexpended balance of the appropriations 
to be transferred to the next year's account. Agreeably to 
your instructions, and in accordance with the location and plans 
you adopted, we commenced the construction of the South 
End sewer, 38 inches in diameter, to extend from the river, 
across the intervale, to Allison street, about 4,000 feet. On 
account of heavy rains and other causes, we were not able to do 
as much as was expected, but enough was done to insure the 



142 STREET DEPARTMENT. 

early completion of it next summer, which we believe will afford 
the relief so much desired for the health and comfort of the 
people in that section of the city. 

We give below the location of the work done in this depart- 
ment, and an approximate cost of each : 

Walker street, 72o feet 10-inch pipe, and Rumford 

street, 175 feet 8-inch pipe, .... S576.37 

Highland street, 550 feet 8-inch pipe, and Bradley 

street, 198 feet 8-inch pipe, .... 407.20 

Summer street and Winter street, 268 feet 8-iuch pipe, 186.40 

Pleasant street, 250 feet 18-inch pipe, . . . 711.40 

Ferry street, 880 feet 10-inch pipe, . . . 805.60 

Water street, 286 feet 8-inch pipe, . . . 152.20 

Franklin and High streets, 228 feet 10-inch pipe, . 259.28 

Sciiool street, 172 feet 8-inch pipe, . . . 126.00 
Tahanto street, 280 feet 8-inch pipe, 60 feet 6-inch 

pipe, ......... 212.50 

Pleasant street extension, 180 feet 8-inch pipe, . 85.80 

Waverly street, 290 feet 8-inch pipe. . . . 124.50 

Mills street, 40 feet 10-inch pipe 44.00 

South End brick sewer, about 730 feet 38-inch diam- 
eter, has been completed. 

We would renew the suggestions made in our report of last 
year, in regard to the extension of the large brick sewer from 
the foot of Depot street, up Warren, to Spring street, which 
should have early attention ; also to the recommendations made 
-by your committee recently to the Board of Aldermen, in regard 
to the needed sewers at the North Find of the precinct. 

While substantial progress has been made in a better regard 
to the rules and regulations pertaining to the entering and care 
of our sewers, and while we notice with pleasure the growing 
appreciation of them by our citizens, yet there is, we believe, a 
just cause for the complaints made against some who have been 
licensed as drain-layers, for the very careless manner in which 
they have done their work, both in entering the sewers and cov- 
ering the ditches. We would suggest that our system of sewers 



CITY OK CONCORD. 143 

has cost the city too much to be carelessly treated. Why 
should they not be as jealously guarded as our system of 
Water- Works ?

STRKET DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF PEXACOOK SEWER PRE- 
CINCT. 



Nothing has been clone the past year by way of extending the 
sewers ; but the main outlet at the Merrimack river has been 
completed in a thorough and substantial manner, and in such a 
way as entirely to obviate the difficulty which has heretofore 
existed during the hot weather, doing away entirely with the 
disagreeable odor that was noticeable in that vicinity. One 
other improvement should be made, at the outlet of the Elm 
street sewer where it empties into the Coutoocook river, carry- 
ing the sewage out into deep and running water. Our sew- 
erage system is in excellent shape, and as the volume of water 
is being constantly increased by water-closets, etc., it will be 
more efficient, and the danger of their becoming clogged will be 
materially lessened. 

The following is a financial statement of receipts and expen- 
ditures for the year :

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



KEPOET OF THE TRUSTEES. 

To the City Council : 

The Trustees of the Concord Public Library view with grati- 
fication the good work accomplished bv the library. Each year 
shows a well marked gain over its predecessor, both in the num- 
ber and the class of books taken, and also in the amount of 
reading and consultation done within the building. The ref- 
erence room is fast increasing, and must soon be recognized as 
one of the most important educational factors in the city. 

The trustees commend the report of tlie librarian to your 
consideration, and trust that its suggestions may meet with 
your official approval. 

Very respectfully, 

ABIAL ROLFE, Ward 1.

BOOKS ADDED. 

Fourteen hundred volumes have been purchased, and three 
hundred volumes have been received as donations to the library, 
from various sources, during the past year. 

THE READING-ROOM 

has been open every week-day during library hours, and on 
every Sunday from one to five o'clock p. m. Latterly, the Sun- 
day readers have increased in numbers, while the number on 
•other days has not diminished. 

THE REFERENCE-ROOM 

has been open every week-day since the first day of June last 
from two to six o'clock p. m., for the use of the teachers and 
scholars iu the city schools, and others who wished to consult 
the books. This department is now well patronized, and the 
thousand and one questions asked by its patrons have been 
answered, so far as practicable, by the assistant librarian in 
charge. 

Tiie last general catalogue of the library was issued in 1884, 
and contained a list of the books up to the time of its publica- 
tion. Since that time seven supplements to the catalogue have 
been issued, and there is matter on hand for another, making 
eight or more separate catalogues of books now in the library, 
requiring possibly a search through every one to find any par- 
ticular book. As a remedy for this, I would recommend that 
the supplements be condensed into one volume, and that the 
original catalogue be suffered to remain unchanged, thus reduc- 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 153 

iug the number of catalogues to two, which may be done with 
but little expense besides the printing. 

The rooms in the basement story of the library building 
should, as soon as possible, be put in order for the reception 
and storage of the government documents now kept in the upper 
book-room, as the shelves now occupied by them will be wanted 
for books used in the circulating library. 

The opening of the reference-library for the accommodation 
of the scholars in the public schools and others has added to 
the task of the librarian and his assistants, and the employment 
of an assistant to take charge of this part of the work seems 
desirable. This subject is recommended to your consideration.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

. To the City Council : 

Your board would resi)ectfully bring to your notice tlie fourth 
annual report of this department of the public work. 

It is a pleasure to be able to give the assurance that good 
progress has been made during the year, and that our citizens 
are annually becoming more and more interested in matters con- 
cerning this department. 

REPORT OF HEALTH OFFICER. 

The report of our health officer serves to confirm this asser- 
tion, and we would ask your attention to his report of work 
performed, as well as to the suggestions therein contained, all of 
which have our approval. 

In this connection we would add, that the time of the health 
officer has been fully occupied during the year in attending to 
the duties of the office, and his report shows very conclusively 
that our people are annually requiring more information regard- 
ing conditions possibly affecting the public health, as well as 
more attention on the part of our city government to matters 
pertaining to the cleanliness of streets, alleys, vacant lots, and 
nuisances wherever they may be found. 

POLICE STATION. 

Our people have good reason to be proud of our new city 
building which has so long been needed for the convenience of 
the police and other departments of our city administration, and 
any one who was conversant with the conditions that existed 
in and about the old lobby will affirm that humanity dictated 



156 CITY OF CONCORD. 

a radical change in the quarters assigned to those wlio are so 
unfortunate as to be classed with those having criminal tenden- 
cies. 

Another class that our police force are obliged to deal with 
are not guilty of misdemeanor, but are homeless, friendless, and 
moneyless. In our new building such people can be provided 
with a comfortable place, and yet not be compelled to associate 
with those having vicious or criminal reputations. 

We believe public opinion fully sustains the action of our city 
council in the erection of this building, and that it will prove a 
good investment in providing suitable offices for the several de- 
partments of the city administration at comparatively small ex- 
pense. At the same time it is an object-lesson in humanity to 
those whose moral obliquities render it necessary to tempora- 
rily detain tliem for their own and the pul)lic good. 

CITY AMBULANCE. 

The purchase of an ambulance was only carrying out the 
spirit of humanity toward those who are so unfortunate as to be 
the victims of injuries or sudden illness. It was a necessity of 
which our laboring population very naturally took cognizance, 
long before those less liable to accidents were made aware of how 
often such a vehicle would be brought into use in a city like 
Concord. 

The fact that it was in use at five different times during the 
first month after it was delivered to the city is ample proof 
that it had become a necessity, and that the money expended 
in its purchase was wisely used in providing a means of com- 
fortable transit for the unfortunate. 

MARGARET PILLSBURY HOSPITAL. 

It may be early to congratulate our citizens upon the good 
fortune that has given them the assurance of a first-class 
general hospital of a capacity that will meet the wants of our 
city in that direction for many yedrs. The munificence of a for- 
mer member of our city government — and for a period its chief 
executive officer — will place Concord in the front rank in the 
charitable work of earing for the sick and afflicted, and in pro- 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 157 

viding for tlieni the comforts of ;i home, and iu such iimelioia- 
tion of suffering as cannot be had for a large class of individuals 
outside the wards of a well conducted hospital ; and there is 
good reason to believe that Mr. Pillsbury became aware of the 
good such an institution might confer upon our city, while 
he was acting as a member of our city government, — therefore 
after a successful business career his mind naturally reverted to 
the conditions that formerly existed. 

Now, while he has contributed so liberally for carrying out a 
great principle of humanity, it is to be hoped our citizens will in 
some manner indicate their desire to have our municipal gov- 
ernment, annually or otherwise, appropriate substantial financial 
aid to its support. Thus far the annual support has been on a 
liberal basis, and we have never heard of a citizen's raising an 
objection. Let the good work go on, and a reward is certain to 
follow. 

GENERAL PROSPEROUS CONDITION OE THE CITY, AND ITS OBLIGA- 
TIONS. 

The public have good reason to be pleased, and our citizens 
to be congratulated, on the continued prosperity and substantial 
growth of our city. The increase in business and population 
has been marked since onr last r-eport, and in this connection we 
desire to call your attention to the fact, that with an increase of 
population and of business interests, the duties and obligations 
of the city toward her people are made more conspicuously im- 
perative. This fact must be apparent to all, — otherwise our new 
fellow-citizens could not secure and enjoy with others equal and 
inalienable rights to good health and happiness, which require 
a clean soil, pure air, and pure water. 

The municipal obligations of a town or a city are increased 
in the same ratio that a population increases : new streets are 
laid out, buildings constructed, and business interests developed 
or made possible. 

Business interests and the abodes of the workmen demand 
your protecting influence to the end that adequate means shall 
be provided to secure an abundant water-supply, as well as good 
and sufficient exit for the removal of sewage and garbage. Al- 
ready the committee on sewers and drains are devising ways and 



158 CITY OF CONCORD. 

means to briug about a considerable extension of our sewer 
system, and it is understood that our water commissioners are 
investigating plans for a better water service, as well as one 
which will probably be sufficient for our present and prospective 
use. To do this, some large natural reservoir of good wholesome 
water should be connected with our present system, and on such 
higiier elevation that it can be delivered by gravity and afford us a 
high water service. This would be far preferable to a pumping 
system, which is expensive and requires constant supervision. 
It is generally understood that such a reservoir has been found 
in a neighboring town, and so situated as to give us such in- 
creased service as we could wish, and at the same time give a 
much needed service to a portion of the town of Boscawen. No 
objection can be raised to this proposition — provided it is certain 
there is sufficient water — as it would provide another source of 
income, and thereby help pay a return on the investment. 

INCREASED WATER-SUPPLY. 

The distance, as compared with what has been considered 
necessary in other cities, is a small item, and chemical analysis 
shows the water to be but slightly inferior to our itreseut 
supply, and much superior to that of many large cities. The 
fact that the water-shed of Penacook lake has been cleared, 
leaving only the refuse of very little forest and other vegetation 
to find its way into the water, serves to give us a fluid contain- 
ing almost the minimum of organic matter ; and should the 
same conditions be imposed and carried out over the water- 
shed of Walker pond in Boscawen, the same result would nat- 
urally follow, and the condition of the water would be much 
improved. Its present condition cannot be considered as being 
incompatible with good health, and the secretary of our state 
board of health says, — "The proportion of solids in Walker 
pond is lower than in nine tenths of the waters used for drink- 
ing purposes in other cities, and in my judgment it can be used 
without any fear ;" and the doctor's opinion is backed by other 
eminent authority. In the consummation of any plan or system 
that will give us an increased water-supply and sewerage, a large 
outlay of money will be necessary to effect such changes and 
extensions as will be required ; therefore, before any plan shall 



HEALTH DEPAKTMENT. 159 

have been adopted, the same patient study and investigation 
should be given the subject, that would be considered desirable 
should a syndicate be preparing to invest the same amount of 
capital in manufacturing or other business pursuits. 

SEWAGE DISPOSAL. 

The problem of what shall be done with the waste and effete 
matter of villages and cities is attracting the attention of the 
officials of all large places, and some of our neighbors on the 
Merrimack, between Concord and tide-water, are seriously 
alarmed at the conditions that obtain at present. Some of them 
take their water-supply from the river, and, as an epidemic of 
typhoid fever has been prevailing in those places, investigations 
have been made by health authorities, and the disagreeable fact 
was revealed that the water-supply might have been the means 
of disseminating the contagious germs of the disease. 

The State Board of Health of Massachusetts extended their 
inquiries into the probable origin of this epidemic as far into 
New Hampshire as this city, but we believe it was conceded 
that the original influence was not to be found in this state. 
However, the investigations tiiat were made to locate the 
primary influence that developed the epidemic only served to 
show that such conditions may arise at any time, and therefore we 
should not be surprised should a demand be made to prevent the 
pollution of the Merrimack. 

In view of the possibility of such an attempt being made to 
prevent the pollution of naturally clear and healthful water, it 
may be an act of wisdom for Concord and other cities in New 
Hampshire, which are now turning their sewage and refuse mat- 
ters into the river, to be making investigations into the systems 
that contemplate the destruction of waste and effete material, 
and its economical disposal without being a nuisance to those in 
its immediate vicinity. 

For several years a small appropriation has been made look- 
ing to this end, but as no commission was appointed to make 
the investigation, nothing has been done, and the appropriation 
has not been expended. 



160 CITY OF CONCORD. 

WHAT SHALL WP: DO WITH OUR SEWAGE ? 

A problem involving complex and conflicting conditions, 
and of great magnitude, confronts several cities of New Hamp- 
shire, and cannot be solved witiiout persistent and patient 
investigation ; for, with taxation already reaching almost the 
maximum limit of endurance, some method must be found that 
will be economical as well as effective. Theoretically, people 
will give all they have for life and health, but practically it is 
not easy to secure unanimity of action on questions involving 
public opinion and the expenditure of public money for health 
purposes : it has been found to be more agreeable to the tax- 
payer to procrastinate, patching up a little here and there and 
taking a good deal of risk, instead of making radical changes 
that will secure perfect protection. Thus far, almost the only 
principle that has been involved, in trying to solve this problem, 
has been how to get it out of the way in the shortest possible 
time — whether by fire or water. 

Little or no attempt has been made to utilize these matters in 
such a manner as to render them useful to those engaged in 
agricultural pursuits, yet it would seem as if it must ultimately 
be made clear that such is the natural solution of what to do 
with all waste matter, and especially so since it is a principle, 
if not an injunction, of nature that nothing shall be lost, but 
that in the cycle of change continually going on between the 
animal and vegetable kingdoms everything shall in some way be 
utilized. 

While it is quite true that it is not the province of a city to 
invest in a plant such as would be necessary to reduce garbage 
and sewage to the proper conditions required that they may 
become useful and profitable fertilizers, yet it is a fact that 
all new industries expect more or less of the fostering care that 
can only be afforded by municipal authority. With a large and 
flourishing tannery in our midst, having an immense amount of 
valuable waste products developed during the process of man- 
ufacture, and with the large quantity of street refuse that is 
removed during the year by the street commissioner — much of 
which is of vegetable origin — we have hundreds of loads of 
material that might be used in the development of a plant 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 161 

which might possibly become self-supporting as 'soon as 
experimental research had been eliminated from the expense. 
These are matters of importance, and it becomes the duty 
of every city to make the most of its opportunities ; but 
if on investigation it is not considered feasible to use these 
waste products in this way, we have now a considerable 
area of laud to be devoted to public parks, and a great deal 
from our streets might be utilized in filling and grading in 
these public places, as well as for a top dressing on other 
portions already grassed over. 

PUBLIC PARKS. 

Good friends of the city have favored us with ample area to 
make beautiful public grounds, and we shall be remiss in 
our duties unless we shall exercise reasonable diligence in 
developing public parks that will not only be ornamental but 
healthful to all who can make their use available for themselves 
and their children. In this way such grounds become a factor 
in the development of a city, and the increase of valuation in 
their immediate vicinity serves to furnish a portion of the taxable 
property necessary to secure the amount required to protect 
and keep such public places in good condition. 

CENTRAL FIRE STATION. 

Last year your board called the attention of the city council 
to the necessity of a thorough reform in hygienic conditions 
existing in and about the central fire station, and remarked 
that "The rules and regulations you have approved to govera 
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." Allow us to add, that it is hardly to the 
credit of a city to be the first to openly violate its own rules 
and regulations, and our people will scarcely expect our health 
officer strictly to enforce the ordinance governing livery and 
other stables, and not have the same rules apply to the city 
stables. 

11 - • 



162 CITY OK CONCOUI). 

Let each department of our public work remember that we 
have outgrown the period of a small town or village, and that 
conditions that might be pardonable in a sparsely settled town 
cannot be tolerated in a compactly settled portion of a city 
without becoming a nuisance ; and just so far as a nuisance is 
allowed to remain in a neighborhood, the valuation of that sec- 
tion is thereby reduced, — therefore, private and public interest 
must suffer in proportion. Let the city set a worthy example 
for all others to follow, and there will be no occasion for inter- 
ference on the part of the health officer. 

DO n't throw refuse matter into the street. 

In this connection we would call the attention of our citizens 
to the following ordinance : " 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 inclosure, or in any 
pond or other body of water where the current will not remove tlie 
same, any rubbish, dirt, soot, asJies, hay, shards, oyster, clam, 
or lobster shells, tin cans, decaying fruit or vegetables, waste 
water, or any refuse animal or vegetable matter whatsoever, 
nor keep in or about anj' dwelling-house, barn, shed, store, 
shop, or cellar, any of the aforesaid substances in an}' manner 
liable to become putrid or offensive, or injurious to the public 
health." Now, in many sections of the city, people seem to 
iiave forgotten that they are not still residing in the country, 
jind daily dump ashes into the street ; and in our business centres 
too little regard is paid to the enforcement of the ordinance, 
— as dirt, bits of paper, and other refuse are swept into the 
streets regardless of the fact that they only serve to furnish 
additional dirt and dust to be driven about by the winds the 
rest of the day. In larger cities the promiscuous distribution 
of hand-bills and other advertising matter by irresponsible 
|)ersous is strictly prohibited, and all our people who are obliged 
to pack and unpack merchandise on our sidewalks should use 
great care in preventing paper, straw, and other material used in 
packing cases, from being unnecessarily scattered along our 
streets. 

In the matter of ashes our health officer has been very lenient, 
J)ut a reform is needed and an example may be necessary ; there- 



HKAl.TH I)EPAKTMP:NT. 1 G3 

fore we add the following section from the same ordinance, 
which provides the [)enalty for a violation of any of its 
provisions : 

" Sec. 25. Any person or persons, company, or corporation, 
who shall violate or cause to be violated, by agent or otherwise, 
any or either of the sections of this chapter, or any or either of 
the provisions thereof, or any or either of the orders, rules, or 
regulations of the board of health, or who shall fail or neglect to 
comply with any or either of the requirements thereof, by agent or 
otherwise, ui)on conviction thereof before the police or other court 
of competent jurisdiction shall be fined not less than three dollars 
and not more than one hundred dollars, with the costs of prosecu- 
tion, for each offence, except in cases where the punishment is 
made and provided for under the laws of the state, in which cases 
the penalty so prescribed shall be imposed." At i)resent the 
gathering of ashes and other garbage from Main street is per- 
formed by the street department, and it is unnecessary to add 
that any one who has witnessed the manner in which is it done, 
especially when the wind is strong, will aflflrm that a reform is 
quite necessary. The carts and other vehicles nsed in this 
department were constructed for the repair of streets, and were 
never intended for the transportation of ashes and other-garbage. 

CAN WE NOT IMPROVE OUR PRESENT METHOD OF REMOVING ASHES 
AND REFUSE? 

Some provision should be made to have this work performed 
in a more cleanly manner, and during the summer some other 
portion of the day should be set apart for this labor rather 
than during the hours when Main street is thronged with people 
attending to shopping or other work generally pursued during 
business hours. 

HOG-PENS AND OTHER NUISANCES. 

There can be no doubt that a hog-pen, barnyard, cow-stable, 
or chicken-pen, near to other buildings used for dwellings, may 
and do become nuisances, therefore we append the ordinance 
which applies to such places. 

"Sec 11. No person or persons shall keep or use any 
hog-pen, goat-pen, chicken-coop, or barnyard so near to any 



164 CITV OK CONCOKD. 

public highway as, in the opinion of the sanitary officer, may be 
offensive or injurious to the public health, or adjoining or abut- 
ting any lot upon which any other person resides, if so near 
them as to be offensive, or in any manner that the contents of 
such hog-pen, goat-pen, chicken-coop, or barnyard are dis- 
charged on said lot, or an}' street, lane, or alley in the city." 

Sensitive people are annoyed, and oftentimes made ill, by 
the noise of such animals, as well as from the nuisance that 
obtains from the offensive odors, which will assail the senses 
unless such places are in better condition than they are gen- 
erally found to be when the attention of the health officer is 
called to them. 

On account of an application to the cit}' council for a license 
to erect a hen-house, and the same being referred to the board 
of health for an opinion, this subject was duly considered, and 
the following interpretation of the above section was placed 
on record : 

"In the opinion of your board of health it was intended by 
the city council that the term chicken-coop should have the same 
significance as the term hen-pen, and in this report the terms 
will be used as synonymous. It is also our opinion that it was 
the design of the city council that passed this ordinance to 
wisely discriminate between conditions that might obtain upon 
the farm, or in small villages, and there be accounted as being 
necessary and unobjectionable, while in the city the same or 
similar conditions would be accounted a nuisance. Civil and 
personal rights in the compact part of a ward or city demand 
the exercise of rules and regulations governing the domain of 
public and private property, and it was in view of such condi- 
tions as might arise regarding the hog-pen, hen-coop, goat-pen, 
&c., that this law was enacted. 

"The ordinance allows the health officer to exercise his judg- 
ment and give his opinion upon what may be a nuisance, and 
offensive or injurious to the public health, and we are well 
aware that many complaints have been made that hen-pens aie 
a nuisance, from different parts of our city and from unpreju- 
diced people residing more than double the distance from hen- 
pens than do the abutters and remonstrants in this case ; . . . 
and it is the opinion of your board of health that a building, 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 165 

erected upon the grounds as set forth in the petition, raav be- 
come offensive and injurious to the public health ; therefore we 
return the petition without approval. 
'• By order of the board of health : 

H. A. ROWELL, 

Health Officer ^ 

A portion of our report is again brought to your notice, in 
order that our position may be fully understood, and it is suffi- 
cient to add that the penalties above quoted (Sec. 2.5) apply to 
this section as well as to the others. 

CONCLUSIONS. 

In conclusion we would add, the public mind is becoming 
more and more enlightened upon the subject of public and per- 
sonal hygiene, and the individual has become more and more 
critical concerning all matters of personal and public sanitation. 
It will be found that in proportion to the educational advantages 
a community have enjoyed, just so far there will be a public 
demand for a more advanced and a higher standard of moral, 
mental, and physical conditions. Conveniences that were 
considered sufficient in Concord for many years subsequent to 
its incorporation as a city, have given way to a public water- 
supply, to public sewers, the telephone, electric fire alarm, paved 
streets, and public parks. Shall we go back again? By no 
means. Let us, as we are prospered and as our population is 
increased, meet all the obligations thereby entailed with intelli- 
gence, and with such a liberal spirit of improvement that those 
coming into our city, bringing with them capital and business, 
shall have no occasion to regret their choice of location, but, 
rather, that capital and labor alike shall feel that we have a 
hearty welcome with which to greet them, and a true interest in 
their welfare and prosperity. 

And while there is no royal road leading to health, and man's 
condition and destiny are much in his own hands, there are duties 
relating to the public good, in a moral and physical sense, that 
every good government, whether it be state or municipal, is 
bound to perform. At the same time, the public must remem- 
ber, that in the performance of these duties, the obligations 



166 CITY OF CONCORD. 

existing between tlie people and tlie govei'ument are nnitiial, 
and no one is exempt from the duties imposed, nor from the 
enforcement of wholesome rules and regulations that shall allow 
all, rich and poor alike, to enjoy '• life and the pursuit of hap- 
piness." 



It is with sorrow that we report the death of Dr. H. C. Cum- 
mings, who was associated with this board from its reorganiza- 
tion under the present ordinance until the time of his death. 
He was a conscientious and faithful public servant, ever leady 
to respond and advise, and one who was devoid of selfishness 
and personal aggrandizement in connection with all public 
work. 

He was kind, yet earnest ; a zealous advocate of sanitary 
reform, yet never acting without good reason ; a firm believer 
in modern hygiene, yet never obtruding his opinions unless 
solicited, he was ever ready to stand by his convictions, unless 
good reason was advanced to prove that a change of senti- 
ment would enhance the value of the work. 

In his death the public have lost a firm friend and an ardent 
believer in the future of our city. May his name be long 
remembered !

It will be noticed that the list of complaints is much larger 
than last year. In ray opinion, however, such increase is not 
because more nuisances exist, but because the people generally 
are taking more interest in providing against sanitary defects 
than heretofore. 

In most cases the complaints made to the health officer have 
been well founded, and wherever a nuisance has been found to 
exist, its abatement has been ordered at once. But there are 
some complaints that upon investigation are found to originate 
from quarrels between neighbors, who make complaint for the 
purpose of making themselves thoroughly disagreeable. All 
cases are properly examined, however, and such suggestions are 
noade as are likely to obviate future causes of complaint, but 
people must not expect the health officer to take part in neigh- 
borhood or family disagreements. It will be noticed by the 
list above given that a large number of complaints relate to 
offensive vaults and privies, and, until proper substitutes are 
provided, this cause of complaint will continue. It would be 
liardly judicious at this time to prohibit absolutely the use of 
vaults, but in connection with the efforts of the board of iiealth 
it might be well to make more stringent regulations regard- 
ing the same. In many cities the individuals who make 
a business of removing the contents of vaults are regularly 
licensed by the health board, and a list of cliarges is also i)re- 
scribed. If some sucli arrangement could be made here, the 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 169 

results would undoubtedly be beneficial, as, by restricting the 
number of licenses, the parties who engage in the business 
would be enabled to procure suitable conveniences for carrying 
on the work. For lack of such regulation the present methods 
of using an open cart, oftentimes leaky and unsuitable, make 
doubly offensive the odors which pollute the air through every 
section where such vehicle ma}' be driven. 

SANITARY INSPECTIONS. 

Tlie system of regular inspections has been continued during 
the current year, and much improvement has been found in the 
sanitary condition of premises inspected the previous year. 
During the year inspections have been made of 

247 private dwelling-houses, 
311 tenement-houses, 

7 boarding-houses, 
57 stables, 

8 meat-markets, 

2 fish-markets, 
13 store cellars, 

3 hotels, 

17 business blocks, 
2 school-houses, 

making a total of 667. There have also been second inspections 
in 231 cases, and third inspections in 112 cases. In a few cases, 
also, a fourth inspection has been required, for the purpose of 
determining whether the orders and suggestions of the officer 
had been fully heeded. 

There have been sent through the mail 89.5 formal notices, 
embodying suggestions from the hoard in cases of the following 
nature : 

Abatement of nuisances, . 
Cleaning vaults and i)rivies, 
Providing water-closets, 
Removing old privies. 
Connecting with i)ublic sewer, .

There have been 237 cases in which vaults and privies have 
been removed and water-closets substituted, and there have also 
been 71 additional water-closets set in new houses built during 
the past year. These closets have been placed in the following 
classes of buildings : 



Private dwellings,

The above indicates a large increase over the year 1889, there 
being nearly 100 more water-closets set, and 93 more vaults and 
privies removed, showing a marked and encouraging improve- 
ment in this special direction.

Flora the above cases reported seven deaths resulted, two 
being from diphtheria and five from typhoid fevei'. During the 
latter part of August and the first part of September there 
were so many cases of typhoid fever as to cause much anxiety, 
and every effort was made to guard against the spread of the 
disease. Rigid examinations were made for the purpose of 
tracing the causes, and in one case in particular the investiga- 
tion was so productive of results as to lead to the belief that 
the timely discovery of defective drainage pipes prevented what 
might have been a wide spread epidemic. In the instance re- 
ferred to, the sewer-pipe passed under an unused portion of the 
house, where it was not likely to be seen, and its original con- 
struction was so faulty that a large opening discharged sewer 
gas directly under the kitchen and dining-room floors. None 
of the inmates of the house had suspected the true cause of the 
difficulty, and when the health officer discovered the condition 
of affairs the owners were undoubtedly as surprised as they 
professed to be. Under the orders of the health officer proper 
changes and repairs were made at once ; the house was fumi- 
gated, and no further trouble has arisen at that place. The 
results in this case serve to emphasize the importance of every 
house-owner's knowledge of his own premises in so far as that 
knowledge relates to the poisonous sewage which he may be 
discharging into his own house by reason of improper trai)s, 
faulty plumbing, or unavoidable accident. 

But two cases of impure well-water have been found duiing 
the past year. In one of these cases it was discovered that 



172 CITY OF CONCORD. 

surface water was allowed to discharge into the well, and two 
persons who had been using the water were stricken with typhoid 
fever. A sample was sent to Prof. Angell for analysis, was 
found to be i)olluted with vegetable matter and sink drainage, 
and entirely unfit for use. The well was ordered to be filled 
up, and the premises have since then been connected with the 
city water-works. 

SEW^ER CONNECTIONS. 

In accordance with the requirements of the city ordinance, 
the health ofliicer has endeavored to fulfil his duty in regard to 
the enforcement of rules and regulations relating to sewers and 
drains. The inspections required for this purpose, and the 
making of the records of the location of inlets — where connected 
to the public sewer — with the location of inside and outside 
traps, has consumed a great deal of time, but it is believed that 
the results obtained have been beneficial. The experience of 
the past year has been such that I repeat the recommendation 
made in the report of last year in regard to the granting of sewer 
permits. As the ordinance now stands, the permit is issued by 
the Committee on Sewers and Drains, and unless the health 
officer is notified by that committee every time that a permit is 
granted, it is almost impossible for him to comply with the ordi- 
nance relating to the inspection of the connections. If it is 
thought desirable still to burden that committee with the for- 
mality of issuing permits, I would suggest that a requirement 
that such permit be countersigned by the health officer might 
pei-haps accomplish the desired result. 

In laying the main sewer through any street, it has been the 
custom to prepare inlets for each lot, whether they were for 
immediate use or not, and it is desirable that such inlets should 
be used wherever, it is possible, instead of cutting a new en- 
trance to the sewer. As the sewer map, on file at the city 
clerk's office, shows the location of all such inlets, it is possible 
for every one who desires to take advantage of it. If it were 
made a requirement upon the granting of a permit to use such 
inlet, it would prevent many of the right-angled connections 
which are now made, and which are objectionable when a diag- 
onal connection can be made instead. 



hp:alth department. 173 

During the past year there have been made 146 sewer con- 
nections, and the health officer has kept a full and complete 
record of the date of connection, location of inlet, location of 
trap, size of pipe, kind of pipe, rate of fall per foot, total length 
of pipe, and the name of the licensed drain-layer doing the 
work. In most cases the drain-layers licensed by the city coun- 
cil have attended to their duties according to the requirements 
of the city ordinances, and liave notified the inspector when 
ready to make connections with the public sewer. 

The inspections which have been made of lateral sewers con- 
nected with the main sewer, show that the material used has 
been of good quality in all cases, being entirely of Akron pipe 
or cast-iron pipe. The length of the different sizes which have 
been laid is as follows : 



Ten-inch Akron pipe. 


40 feet. 


Eight-inch "■ 


252 " 


Sis-inch " 


2475 " 


"■ iron pipe, 


160 " 


Five-inch Akron pipe, 


6749 - 


Four-inch " 


74 " 


Three-inch " 


30 " 



making a total of 9780 feet, 

or an average of about 67 feet each for the 146 different lat- 
eral sewers constructed. 

The premises thus provided with sewer connections furnish 
lateral sewers for 

62 private dwellings, 
120 tenements, 

2 boarding-houses, 
5 business blocks, 
1 market, 

3 stables, 

1 barber-shop, 
1 barn-yard, 

and 40 'of the above have been connected with new iiouses 
erected during the year. 



174 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Eight lateral sewers have been taken up and relaid witli 
larger pipe, for the purpose of making connections for water- 
closets. In eight other cases plank drains, cement and stone 
drains, have been taken up and replaced by Akron pipe. 

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

26 cesspools, 

52 surface drains, 
7 wells used as cesspools, 
5 drains discharging under stables. 

The main sewers have been extended to many localities where 
needed, as will be seen by the report of the Committee on Sew- 
ers and Drains, and a large section has thus been permanently 
provided with drainage facilities. 

The extension of the Walker street sewer from Bradley street 
to Rumford street provides sewer accommodations for fourteen 
houses now erected, of which ten have already made connections. 

The Highland street sewer provides sewer accommodations for 
ten dwelling-houses, of which nine have already connected. 

The new sewer built in Ferry street provides sewer accommo- 
dations for seven dwelling-houses, of which six have already 
connected, and also provides for disposing of the objectionable 
features connected with a cow-yard adjoining that street. 

A new sewer has been built in High street, providing sewer 
accommodations for three dwelling-houses, of which two have 
already connected. 

The extension of the School street sewer from Tahanto to 
Pine street furnishes sewer accommodations for four building 
lots, and one dwelling-house which has already connected. 

The new sewer in Tahanto street provides for three dwelling- 
houses, of which one has already connected. 

A new sewer has been built in Waverly street providing sewer 
accommodations for ten dwelling-houses, of which seven have 
already connected. 

The Mills street extension to Downing street provides for 
three dwelling-houses, of which two have connected. 

Since the beginning of the present year a monthly statement 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 1 75 

of Llie mortality of the city lias been prepared from the returns 
made to the city registrar. These have been sent in exchange 
to other cities, and the reports thus received from different sec- 
tions show that the average death rate is below most of the 
cities and towns thus far heard from. 

It will be seen by the foregoing statement of the business 
transacted in connection with this ottice that the duties of the 
sanitary officer are continuous and varied in character, and fre- 
quently of such a nature as to require the exercise of much 
patience and discretion ; but the results accomplished show a 
very considerable progress in sanitar}' improvement, and a 
growing appreciation on the part of the public of the means 
which are used to insure their health and safety.

I would most respectfully suggest that this department requires 
a team. Frequently we are called to some part of the city to 
make an arrest, but before we can procure a team and arrive at 
our destination the party has escaped, and that old question is 
asked, " Where are the police?" What would the public think, 
or say, if the fire department were obliged to go to livery stables 
to hire horses in case of an alarm of fire? It is just as essen- 
tial that the police should respond at once to all calls. 

ADDITIONAL DAY OFFICER. 

I would recommend the appointment of one additional day 
police officer. There are many cases that need investiga- 
tion, witnesses to look up, etc. ; and when the City Marshal is 
obliged to be absent from the office, no officer is on the street in 
the daytime. If we had no outside extra work to do, perhaps 
the present force would be sufficient. It should be borne in 
mind, that the first thing a criminal does after committing a 
crime is to beat a retreat, and that it takes some time to insti- 
tute a search for him ; also, that it reduces the force for patrol 
duty. Surely it is desirable to have a pati'olman on duty con- 
tinuouslv. 



1 would also suggest that the City Council furnish some place 
for children to coast and skate, at a small expense. The [)ond 
at White Park could be prepared for a skating-rink, and 
would relieve our streets of many children who endanger them- 
selves and others. 



186 CITY OK CONCOUI) 



The ordinance compelling owners to license their dogs caused 
tlie disposal of a large number of the same, for the reason that 
if a man thinks enough of his dog to pay a five-dollar license, 
he will not allow it to run the streets to annoy and disgust the 
public. It had a desirable effect; but it should be amended, 
as it is defective in its present form. 

POLICE STATION. 

To Mayor Stillman Humphrey and the City Council the cit- 
izens of Concord should be grateful for the model Police Sta-' 
tion, which was so much needed. That we have one of the 
most convenient and suitable buildings for its purpose in New 
England there is no doubt. If another were to be built, I could 
suggest no change, except, in case a team should be furnished 
this department, a shed should be added to the south end 
of the building for the same. 

POLICK FORCE. 

Concord should be congratulated upon its police force. Your 
police officers are men of sterling qualities and steady habits. 
Their efficiency is the best recommendation they can have. 
I can state with pleasure that each has heartily seconded my 
endeavors, and I hereby return my grateful appreciation of 
their zealous efforts. 

SPECIAL RESERVE OFFICERS. 

The reserve officers have done valuable service, and aided the 
regular force materially during the past year. It is a valuable 
part of the police force of Concord in case of necessity. The 
thanks of this department are due them for their services, and 
to Captain Gilmore for the time and patience he has bestowed 
in making them the finest appearing body of police (for its 
number) in New P^ngland. I would suggest that these men, 
having seen service and having a certain amount of experience, 
are the better equipped and qualified for. the position of police 
officers, and that when a vacancy occurs it should, if practicable, 
be filled from this squad. That such a course would be an 
incentive to the men to do duty, which at times is neither con- 
venient nor pleasant, there can be no doubt. 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 187 



IN CONCLUSION. 



To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen I return my sincere 
thanks for the courteous treatment this department has received 
at their hands. 

I wish to extend especially to His Honor Stillmau Humphrey, 
the Mayor and Chief of Police, my sincere thanks for the kind 
consideration, loyalty, and assistance rendered at all times. 

Harry G. Sargent, Esq., City Solicitor, has always, and under 
trying circumstances, been ready and willing to aid us in all 
cases ; for which this department is under many obligations. 
Respectfully submitted : 

a. SCOTT LOCKE, 

City Marshal.

EEPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council: 

The cases of Merrick & Martin and Nancy L. Button against 
the city, pending at the date of my last annual report, have 
been disposed of. These cases were appeals from the award 
of damages by the mayor and aldermen for the Elm House 
property, which was taken for the Pleasant street extension. 
In the Button case, a settlement was agreed on, increasing the 
amount awarded by the mayor and aldermen from Sl4,017 to 
$17,000, Mrs. Button to bear the expense of removing the 
buildings. In the Merrick & Martin case, the county commis- 
sioners awarded damages in the sum of S2,800. 

The case of John C. Smith against the city, to recover $1,000 
for injuries occasioned by an alleged defect in the highway, has 
been settled by the Concord Horse Railroad without expense 
to the city. 

In the case of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company against 
Concord, the commissioners have made a report sustaining the 
claim of the city to tax a portion of the water-power at Garvin's 
Falls. The case has been taken to the law term of the supreme 
court on exceptions claimed by the Amoskeag Manufacturing 
Company. 

In June, 1890, the city procured an injunction against Betsey 
J. Burleigh, to restrain her from violating the provision of the 
building ordinance within the limits of the fire precinct. A 
hearing was subsequently had before one of the justices of the 
sui)rerae court, on the petition of Mrs. Burleigh to dissolve the 
injunction, which resulted in the injunction's being sustained. 

In the case of Haskell against Concord, the referee, Hon. 
Jeremiah Smith, of Bover, resigned his commission as referee, 
and the case now stands in order for trial by jury. 



POLICE DEPARTMKNT. 191 

The case of Mai-ia Hanison against the city was continued at 
the October term, 1890, of the supreme court, on account of 
the serious illness of the commissioner of liighways, one of the 
principal witnesses for the city. 

The case of Merrimacl< County against Concord, pending in 
the law terra of the supreme court, was decided adversely to 
the city at the adjourned law term in July, 1890. A motion 
for a rehearing was granted, and the case was argued orally by 
the solicitor in December last. 

The case of Lowell P^astman against Concord, which is an 
appeal from the assessment of damages by the board of mayor 
and aldermen in laying out Durgin street, has been referred to 
the county commissioners, and is now pending before them. 

The case of Benjamin E. Badger and William S. Badger v. 
Concord is an appeal from the award of damages assessed by 

the mayor and aldermen in laying out street. It was 

filed in court August 6, 1890, and has been referred to the 
county commissioners. 

August 11, 1890, a suit was brought against the city by 
Charles R. Burnham, to recover for injuries alleged to have 
been caused by an icy sidewalk on Chapel street, in which dam- 
ages are claimed in the sum of $10,000. 

Notice has been served on the city by George W. Waters, 
alleging injuries to his person, horse, and sleigh, caused by the 
alleged improper and illegal use of the steam motor of the Con- 
cord Horse Railroad, near the junction of Main, Fiske, and 
Church streets, and claiming damages from said city to the 
amount of $530.

AVHITb; PARK. 195 



KEPOET OF THE PARK COMMISSIONERS. 



To the City Council : 

The Park Commissioners ])resent lierewitli tlieir second annual 
report, covering the year 1890. 

The plans made bv Mr. Charles Eliot, referred to in our [pre- 
vious report, have been taken as a basis for all work done 
during the year, with ti)e purpose of carrying out in detail, as 
circumstances will permit, the various suggestions of that gen- 
tleman, so that when com[)leted the park will present a harmoni- 
ous and suitable design, without regard to the order in which 
the improvements may be taken up. 

As will be seen by the report of the treasurer, the appropria- 
tion has been expended in carrying on the work as outlined 
above, and very satisfactory progress has been made in certain 
directions, and of such a character as to be apparent to the 
public. 

The most of the work has been done under the supervision of 
Mr. J. N. McClintock, civil engineer, who has faithfully carried 
out the suggestions of the commissioners in conformity with 
the general plan above alluded to. The gravel banks, and the 
knoll composed of hard-pan and boulders, contiguous to Wash- 
ington street, were of such a character that it was decided to 
invite propositions for their removail by contract, and an arrange- 
ment was made with Brown & Abbott by which the soil and 
rocks were removed to such parts of the park as required fill- 
ing, and the grading practically completed upon that portion 
lying near Washington and White streets during the season. 
AVith such sandy soil, it became necessary to procure a suffi- 
cient amount of loam for the future proper cultivation of the 
land, and investigation was made with a view of ascertaining 
the possibility of securing so large an amount as would be re- 
quired. It was found that in the south-west portion of the 
park a peat-bed extended to an unknown depth, and that a 



196 CITY OF CONCORD. 

large araouut of soil could there be obtained, which would prob- 
ably, after exposure to the elements, provide a fertile, friable 
loam. Accordingly trenches were sunk, and a large amount of 
peat was obtained and spread upon the surface of the sandy 
subsoil, which had been removed to a sufficient depth to allow 
a proper coating of loam to bring it to grade, and these trenches 
were afterward filled with the worthless subsoil and rocks, with 
sufficient covering, and the ground then levelled. 

Later in the season work was begun upon the proposed lake, 
lying in the lower part of the park, and the muck thus removed 
was used to supplement the peat removed from the peat-bed in 
covering the exposed subsoil. This work was pushed fartlier 
than was at first contemplated for this season, the result being 
that this excavation is practically completed, and hundreds of 
loads of rich muck have been used in grading the sandy surface 
to its proper level. It is possible that the character of this soil 
is such that it may require exposure to the weather for some 
time before being in suitable condition for the culture of such 
plants and shrubs as it may be desirable to plant in it, or that 
it mav be necessary to make an admixture of a lighter loam to 
produce satisfactory results ; but, witliout its use, it would have 
been very difficult, if not practically impossible, to procure suf- 
ficient suitable loam from a distance to provide for all the neces- 
sities of grading. 

The various walks and paths indicated upon the plan upon 
the south-east portion of the park have been carefully laid out 
and graded with suitable material, so that comparatively little 
work will require to be done to complete these very necessary 
adjuncts to the park. A stone foundation has been laid for a 
bridge across the small stream flowing from the lake, so that a 
bridge of suitable design can be erected at any time, when it is 
thought proper and the appropriation will admit. 

A large amount of work has also been done, under the super- 
vision of Mr. Curtis White, in clearing up the underbrush and 
stones in different portions' of the park, and smoothing the sur- 
face in preparation for the future, so that much has thus been 
accomplished which was quite as necessary, though not so ap- 
parent to the observation of the public as other branches of the 
work . 



AVHITE PARK. 197 

The great interest which has been manifested in the work by 
the citizens generally has been a source of much satisfaction to 
the commissioners, who have been pleased to notice the con- 
tinually increasing number of visitors while the work has been 
in progress ; and as certain portions of the park assume a more 
finished appearance, it is not likely that such interest will dimin- 
ish. What has already been done serves to bring into more 
prominence the requirements of the future, but it is not intended 
to proceed beyond the limits of the appropriation which may be 
made in any single season, thougii it is plain to be seen that 
a few years will accomplish wonders towards securing a most 
delightful, quiet, and healthful retreat for all classes of citizens 
within the boundaries of the park. 

The commissioners recommend the purchase of the small strip 
of land lying at the northerly end of the park, next to the ex- 
tension of Beacon street, which can be secured for a reasonable 
sura. The ownership of this strip of land will secure to the city 
a park bounded on all its sides l\y streets when Beacon street 
shall be extended, with the exception of a small corner owned 
by Mr. James H. Rowell, who has expressed himself as willing 
to give the city the option of purchasing his lots whenever he 
shall part with his personal ownership. 

It seems desirable that something in the nature of a fence 
should be erected upon the Washington street side during the 
coming year, and although it may be thought best eventually to 
make this margin of stone curbing, it is believed that a small 
outlay each year in that direction is preferable to the use of the 
large amount whicii would be required for completing improve- 
ments at once. It is probable that a light fence, of neat design 
but inexpensive, may be decided upon as a temporary expedient, 
leaving a more permanent structure to the decision of the future. 
In order to make such fence effective, however, as an outline, 
it is desirable that a concrete sidewalk be completed on Wash- 
ington street during the coming season, as its construction in 
the near future is a necessity, and the required appropriation at 
this time will materially aid the commissioners in a proper de- 
velopment of those parts of the park which may be contiguous 
thereto. 

The commissioners believe that the money thus far expended 



198 CITV OF CONCORD. 

has been a good investment for the city, and tliat the lapse of 
time will serve to emphasize the desirable results which will 
accrue to its citizens from thus securing, in a convenient and 
easily accessible location, a park which, though limited in area, 
combines so many advantages. 

That others who are interested in beautiful natural scenery 
appreciate the possibilities of White Park is shown by a lengthy 
description of the same in Garden and Forest of August 13, 
1890, and the purposes of the commission, as there giveu, may 
may appropriately find place here : 

'"The commission intends to make the park a place of quiet 
resort for people who cannot take the time, or who have not the 
strength, to go often to find refreshment in the open country. 
No elaborate gardening will be arlmitted, not only because it is 
costly, but also because it would be incongruous. Every city 
of the new West may have its carpet-bed ' park,' if it so wishes, 
but Concord proposes to seize her opportunity to provide for 
her citizens and their posterity something very much more valu- 
able. She will set aside and preserve, for the enjoyment of all 
orderly townspeople, a typical, strikingly beautiful, and very 
easily accessible bit of New England landscape. Would that 
every American city and town might thus save for its citizens 
some characteristic portion of its neighboring country.! "

EEPOKT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE 

FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF BLOSSOM HILL 
CEMETERY. 



To the City Council: 

At the close of last year (1889) there remained to be built 
on the street line at the northerly front of the cemetery about 
350 linear feet of wall ; this has been laid the present year, 
leaving an opening for a carriage entrance at the north-east 
corner of the grounds, where a tasteful gate of wrought-iron 
will be placed, and the stone posts finished to correspond in 
design with the work of the main entrance. The street wall is 
now substantially completed, except the curved approaches to 
the proposed gateway and a post or two at the southerly end 
of the wall similar to those at the northern terminal. These 
approaches will comprise about 70 feet of convex curving wall 
on each side of the entrance way, or a total length of about 140 
feet, which should be laid by carefully considered plans in a 
thoroughly artistic manner. 

Your committee very much regret that the last mentioned work 
has not been accomplished the present year as was promised in 
our last report. They had hoped at this time to be able to an- 
nounce the wall complete and in readiness for the arched gate- 
way, but the unusual demand for stone masonry for building 
purposes the past season made it quite difficult to contract 
upon favorable terms for the work desired, and delayed until 
late in the season the work which should have begun with the 
opening of spring. The delay in wall-building necessarily de- 
layed the intended grading, a pressing and urgent need for which 
has been so long manifest. It is hoped that the coming season, 
with sufficient means provided, may witness at least the comple- 
tion of the wall and the skilful grading of the entire front. 



CEMETERIES. 225 

We again plead for a more speedy accomplishment of this 
long delayed and greatly needed work. This cemetery is con- 
secrated as few other spots on earth can ever be for us : it is the 
abode of our beloved kindred who made comely and prosperous 
the city in which we live, and attractive these homes which we 
enjoy, — who made for us sacrifices we can never make for them. 
Unsurpassed as it is in natural beauty, may its outward adorn- 
ment be speedily made to fittingly correspond with the tasteful 
and tender care within ! 

The special committee which has been carrying on this work, 
created by an ordinance of the city passed May 16, 1887, for 
a term of three years, has been by a later act, passed November 
11, 1890, dissolved, and on the latter date ceased to exist. A 
board of six persons, styled Commissioners of Cemeteries, 
are their successors. May they receive the cordial support of 
your honorable body and the general public. 
Respectfully submitted : 

JOHN C. ORDWAY, 
Secretary of the late Committee.

KEPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 

ON FRONT WALL OF BLOSSOM HILL CEMETERY. 



To the City Council of the City of Concord : 

The committee, to whom was Intrusted the erection of the 
wall in front of Blossom Hill cemetery, continued the work 
assigned them during the season of 1890, and have completed 
the same, as designed, with the exception of the returns to the 
main entrance. 

The amount of money standing to their 

credit at the beginning of the season 

of 1890 was $70.40 

Appropriated in 1890, . . . 4,000.00 

$4,070.40 

Amount expended for walls, plans, exca- * 

ration, and surveys during the season 

of 1890 was ..... 1,722.80 

Balance on hand ..... $2,347.07 

This amount is deemed sufficient to complete returns above 
mentioned and commence the extension of the wall along the 
front of the Roman Catholic cemetery, if such be ordered, — as, 
in the opinion of the undersigned, it should be. It is impor- 
tant that the north end of Rumford street, in front of the cem- 
etery, should be graded as contemplated, as further delay will 
injure the wall erected two years ago. 
Respectfully submitted :

We wish to express our obligations to the Mayor and Com- 
mittee on Fire Department for the interest taken in this Depart- 
ment during the year, and for the many courtesies shown us. 
To the members of the several companies we are indebted for 
the prompt manner in which they have responded to all calls of 
duty, and for the zeal with which all their work has been done. 

The Police Department has been prompt in responding to 
alarms, and has rendered valuable service in keeping the 
streets at the fires free from crowds, greatly aiding the men in 
their work.

REGULATIONS OF 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 i^ipe, 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 hydrant or steamer, as provided in the foregoing article ; but any 
company furnishing the entire line, and receiving water from a steamer, 
the pipe shall belong to such company so receiving. 

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

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

Art. 5. 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. 



FIKE DEPARTMEXT. 245 

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 chai'ge at the time. 

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

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

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



RULES FOR DRIVERS. 

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

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

Tliey 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 proceeding to Main street, via Warren street, the drivers shall trot 
their horses and have them under complete control until the turn has 
been made. 

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 immber will indicate the district.

Names of kev-holders will be found on the boxes. 



riRE-AL.\RM SIGNALS. 

1. Alarms rung in from boxes 41, 42, 43, 4.5, 46, 47, 48, 49, and 56, 
will not be responded to by the Alert Hose until signalled. The signal 
to proceed to the fire will be a second alai*m ; the signal of dismissal, three 
strokes of the bells. 

2. Alarms rung in from boxes 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 23, 26, and 56, 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). 

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.) 



248 CITY OF CONCORD. 

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

Steamer Kearsarge and Hose — To all calls. 

Eagle Hose — To all calls. 

Hooh 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 twenty-four miles of wire on the 
main lines, and seven miles of extension wire for call-bells. 

On the main line are twenty-six fire-alarm boxes belonging to the city, 
and five private boxes, — in all, thirty-one. 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, Mass.

MAYOR'S ADDRESS. 



Gentlemen of tlie City Council : 

In accordance with the city charter we have 
accepted the oath of office, and find onrselves 
upon the beginning of a new year — through the 
trust confided in us by our fellow-citizens — here 
assembled to formally inaugurate the city govern- 
ment for the coming two years. To these citizens 
we have pledged ourselves for an impartial and 
economical management of the city afi*airs. 

Permit me, before proceeding further, to express 
through you, to my fellow-citizens, my appreciation 
of the honor they have bestowed upon me in des- 
ignating me to fill the highest office it is their 
privilege to bestow. In accepting this honor, it 
is my purpose to honor them by a faithful and con- 
scientious discharge of all the duties that devolve 
upon the office. 

It is evident that the people of this city desire 
business men to govern their affairs. Our admin- 
istration will be successful just so far as we respond 
to this demand. The same rules that apply in our 
business should be followed in governing our city* 
There should be no places for partisanship, or dis- 
position of the spoils to the professional politician. 
19 



290 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The qualifications for office under this government 
should be integrity and capacity, — meaning that 
there are no favorites or sinecures under a business 
man's government; that there are no side entrances 
to these council chambers, and that judgment rules 
instead of sentiment. 

Whether such a government shall result from our 
coming together depends, in a great measure, upon 
you. There are so many able men among you, 
and you represent so many difterent'^business pur- 
suits, that great al^ility and valuable personal 
experience can be l)rought to bear upon every 
matter that shall come under consideration. 

As the city fathers, we should guard the city's 
interest as we would those of our own families. 
These two years will be full of responsibilities, new 
to many of us, and whatever is referred to our con- 
sideration, the decisions made should be the out- 
growth of careful deliberation. 

o 

Remember, that we are to consider matters for the 
future as well as for the present. Criticisms must 
be expected until our methods shall have been 
proved by trial. From the moral and upright we 
shall receive nothing but approval, and from all 
just men their whole support. And the whole city 
will feel the ettects of such an administration by 
increased prosperity and unison of feeling. 

This is the era of healthy growth and prosperity 
all over the land, and the rising generation demands 
of us to keep abreast of the times in all our doings. 



MAYOR S ADDRESS. 



291 



What has sufficed in the past may be entirely 
wrong to follow in the future. We must so legis- 
late that our various industries will surely remain 
here, and must endeavor to attract toward our city 
much of ^the idle capital that always seeks invest- 
ment in a wide-awake municipality.

It is my duty to call your attention to the condi- 
tion of the several departments of the municipal 
affairs. I shall add such suggestions and recom- 
mendations as seem in my judgment to be wise. 

In our public schools we may justly take pride, 
and I mention them thus early, because it is to 
them that we must look for helpful work in the 
training of youth and in the making of character. 

The Board of Education may congratulate itself 
upon the material results of the last two years, as 
evinced by the substantial, commodious, and even 
elegant school-houses which have been erected. 
The cost of the new buildings has been, —

Franklin school, inclnding the removal 

and refittmg of the old building, $16,432.81 
Kimball school, 57,673.61 

High school, 80,000.00 

We find efficient teachers in every department ; and 
in our superintendent, Mr. L. J. Rundlett, we have 
one who has by earnest lal^or brought the course 
of study pursued here to a high standard, when 
compared with that of other cities in ^ew Eng- 
land. I am not aware that any proposition for 
further building is likely to come before you. 

WATER DEPARTMENT. 

When our water-supply was first received from 
Penacook lake, it was supposed it would abundantly 
satisfy the demands to be made upon it. This is 
an instance in which foresight was somewhat 
obscured by the extent of future progress. Time 
has revealed to us more growth in our city's pop- 
ulation than was then anticipated. The result is a 
deficiency in the necessary force of our water- 
supply. Added to this increase of population in 
the city proper has been the annexing of Penacook, 
West Concord, and Millville. 

That some definite and immediate action should 
be taken is very evident. Its capacity is taxed to 
its utmost every day, and should a conflagration 
occur in our midst we should be embarrassed in our 
efforts to control it. Especially is the deficiency of 



294 CITY OF CONCORD. 

our water force noticeable in the part of our city 
known as " on the hilL" There are located many 
of our handsome residences, and there, too, can be 
found valuable land for further buildings,^if suffi- 
cient water privileges can be provided there. 

In the business portions the water commissioners 
have had continually to refuse any more requests 
for water as a motive power, and thus, in many 
instances, it interferes with successful business 
enterprise. With all these forcible facts staring 
us in the face, it will he disastrous to the interests 
of our city if we close our eyes to this condition of 
our water-works. From partial investigation by the 
water commissioners these facts have been ascer- 
tained, and it follows that we must seek increased 
supply from some body of watei of higher eleva- 
tion. Two remedies have been considered, — the 
one a pumping-station, the other an enlargement of 
the present gravity system. 

The first action upon this matter will of course 
necessitate the issue of new bonds. To many of 
our citizens the first thouglit of " new bonds " is 
increased taxation, and that^ occasions dissatisfac- 
tion. I shall endeavor right here to correct this 
common error. Water bonds differ from many other 
city bonds in the fact that they are self-sustaining. 
Capitalists stand ready to assume our whole water 
debt, and pay a handsome preminm. Added to 
this are the annual prices paid for the use of the 
water, and from the vai'ious kinds of business wait- 



m.S mayor's address. 295 

ing for opportunity to use water is derived an 
income which puts a different phase upon these 
bonds than those, for instance, incurred by sewer- 
age, which receives no annual income from usage. 

This is a uiatter of importance which we may 
have to consider, and, should ^it assume definite 
form in real action, I hope we shall be wise in our 
decisions, and that they will result in accomplish- 
ing better Avater facilities. 

The rapid growth and development of our city 
proper for the past few years will increase the work 
of the sewer counnittee. Our sewerage is good, 
but it should be a matter of constant care to guard 
against the advent of those diseases which in too 
many instances have their origin in a lack of good 
and suificient drainage. 

Some new sewers will be called for this year. I 
Avould recommeud an extension of one as far as 
the south-west corner of White Park. Another 
should l)e put in on the new Prospect street, to be 
entered from the east side of ^N'orth State street, 
and the one already begun at the South End should 
be completed. It should be the policy of this com- 
mittee to meet the demands as rapidly as possible, 
and to begin the work as early as the spring will 
admit. 

The board of health, to which all sanitary mat- 
ters are referred, is composed of gentlemen well 
qualified for the service. That the result of their 
labors in the past has produced a more healthful 



296 CITY OF CONCORD. 

atmosphere, all will concede. This is a depart- 
ment which considers matters of vital importance. 
Every citizen should be awake to danger, and con- 
fer with this board upon all matters injurious to 
health which come under their observation. Then 
even more efficient results can be arrived at by the 
officials. 

The Margaret Pillsbury Hospital, the land and 
building for which have been provided by the 
munificent gift of our former citizen and ex-mayor, 
Hon. George A. Pillsbury, is a grand monument of 
philanthropy. The gratitude of our citizens will 
ever flow towards the gi^^er. Here indeed will be 
a home for the sick and sufl:ering, where profes- 
sional sldll and tender care will ever minister to 
their necessities. Fortunate is the city which has 
friends like the donor of The Margaret Pillsbury 
Hospital. Our appropriation toward its support 
may well be a generous one. 

The free public library, in the Fowler Building, 
is a literary treasure open to every citizen. ]^ow 
that its use is free, the demands upon its shelves are 
steadily increasing. A liberal appropriation for its 
maintenance and enlargement is called for by con- 
siderations of both public honor and public need. 

White Park, the gift of Mrs. Armenia S. White, 
has, during the past sunnner, made a most com- 
mendal)le development, and has been a very de- 
lightful surprise to many of our citizens. The 
value of the gift is only beginning to be appreciated 



mayor's address. 297 

as it should be. Mr. Charles Elliot, of Boston, the 
landscape architect, whose taste has aided in its 
development, says nature has done more to make 
this spot suitable for a ])eautiful park than for any 
like convenient locality which he has known in our 
state. 

The connnissioners have expended the limited 
appropriations granted with marvellous results. I 
reconnnend for its development an appropriation 
larger than last year, so that old and young may the 
earlier enjoy the beautiful park in its fuller extent. 
A substantial fence should be built along its south- 
ern front, and a desirable addition to its northern 
area can be had for $700. For these purposes I 
recommend an appropriation. 

There is within our reach at the South End a 
very desirable woodland park. The trees on it are 
the growth of a century, and, to save them from 
being cut down, the tract has been purchased l^y 
some public-spirited gentlemen, and will, I under- 
stand, be offered to the city in memory of our late 
distinguished townsman, Hon. Edward H. Rollins. 
I shall recommend that it be accepted, and that 
suitable measures be taken for its preservation and 
future improvement. 

HIGHWAYS. 

The work upon our streets should be begun as 
early as the weather will admit. Macadamizing 
should be continued wherever the city travel de- 



298 CITY OF CONCORD. 

mands it, keeping" of course within bounds of the 
appropriations. The stone we have been using o± 
late is not of sufficient hardness throughout. The 
soft stone wears down, and in time gives an uneven 
road. The stone chips from the stone-yards here 
will cost some more, but will be worth much more 
for Macadamizing. 

Some more new sidewalks will be called for, and 
some of the old ones repaired. Better street cross- 
ings in some localities should be laid. I doubt 
whether thei-e is a community anywhere no more 
populous than our own which has so many miles of 
streets and sidewalks to maintain. 

This work in the past has been Avell carried out 
in most instances, but in order to receive the full 
value of the money thus invested there should be 
constant repairs. The compact part of the city 
should have attention first, the outside wards 
receiving their proportion of the aj^propriations. 
The people in these wards owning work teams 
should be recognized in distributing the work of 
repairs in their locality, instead of sending teams 
from the city proper. 

The office of commissioner of highways, as now 
constituted, gives all the power of action to one 
man, which has been fully deinonstrated during the 
past few years. The mayor and aldermen are 
devoid of any authority in the dictation of the work 
of this department, so important to tax-payers. 
This arrangement, so independent of the voice of the 



mayor's audkkss. * 299 

mayor and aldermen, does not give pei'fect satis- 
faction. To modify it somewhat niiglit give l)etter 
results. 

Oar street electric lights have increased from 
seventeen to fifty-one. Luxury after a time l:)e- 
comes a necessity : so it has proved itself to be 
with electric lights. When we come to know the 
fact that several gas lights are dispensed with for 
each new electric light, they are not as expensive 
as was at first suj^posed. Adding a few more each 
year will give satisfaction equal to the expense 
incurred. 

The question of rebuilding the Free Bridge 
must come up for consideration, and be acted upon 
very soon. In my judgment, a bridge of substan- 
tial construction should be built. A modern iron 
bridge would never be a matter of regret to our 
city. 

FIRE DEPARTMEXT. 

This department is in a condition very com- 
mendable. Its members are all worthy citizens, of 
great courage and ready action. To provide them 
with every available means to carry out the work 
required of them should unhesitatingly be attempt- 
ed. With the recently purchased steamer, added to 
the apparatus already in use in the city proper, 
the department is well equipped as far as the able- 
bodied men and apparatus go, but sufiicient water 
force is wanting. Unless this want is speedily 



300 CITY OF CONCORD. 

supplied, the other efficiencies of the department 
may avail us but little. 

The number of alarms in 1890 was thirty-two ; 
of these, sixteen were what are called still alarms. 

The loss of property was $35,657.67. 

The electric fire-alarm has proved itself of great 
value, and has responded with accuracy in almost 
every instance. 

By the death of the late Chief Engineer, Mr. C. 
C. Blanchard, the city lost an efficient officer and 
the firemen a personal friend. 

Oar new chief engineer is discharging his duties 
successfully. 

The steward of the Fire Station should have 
more suitable apartments, removed from the imme- 
diate vicinity of the horses. 

I would recommend the purchase of a pair of 
new horses immediately, and also that a pair of 
horses be kept at the station throughout the day, 
in readiness for action. 

Some new " fabric hose" will be wanted at Pena- 
cook and West Concord. The usual appropria- 
tions will probably maintain the department. 

Several of the city buildings need repairing, 
especially the Good- Will hose-house and ward six 
ward-room. A special aj^propriation of several 
hundred dollars should be made for such repairs. 

The Police Department, as now organized, has 
a marshal, assistant marshal, six patrolmen, and a 



mayor's address. 301 

number of efficient special officers. Our city has 
been orderly, and crimes of the most noticeable 
kind have been few. In several instances criminals 
have been hunted down with praiseworthy effi- 
ciency and sldll. 

In this department, liarmony and good discipline 
are very necessary to good work, and care should 
be taken in the selection of our police. Physically 
strong, in character beyond reproach: these are 
recommendations that should be considered rather 
than political preferences. 

The uniformed squad of police deserve special 
mention for the admirable manner in which they 
have done escort duty in this city and several 
others. It would be a matter of much regret if 
this imposing line of men should cease to be an 
organization. 

The new building for a police station and ward- 
room seems to be adequate to its purpose. 

The city ambulance, in my opinion, should be 
under the immediate control of the police. 

Blossom Hill Cemetery has been in the hands of 
a competent committee, and satisfactory progress 
has been made in the adornment of the city of the 
dead. To continue this is, of course, our duty. I 
would suggest that more be done for the proper 
preservation of the Old ^orth Cemetery. 

I wish, also, that our administration might wit- 
ness the building of an appropriate gateway to 



302 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Blossom Hill — perhaps the gift of some fortunate 
friend, who might thus do honor to himself and the 

dead. 

I have submitted to your consideration the con- 
dition of the city finances, and other points of vital 
importance to the future of our city. Only as far 
as I can see now have I recommended improve- 
ments. I reserve the privilege of communicating 
to you, from time to time, any additional changes 
which, in my judgment, the needs of the city de- 
mand. 

I refer you to the reports of the several commit- 
tees for a more extended account of the work of 
the past two years. 

My obligations should be expressed to the retir- 
ing mayor for much friendly counsel and aid. 

After this brief expression of opinion, I think 
we are ready to enter upon our duties, and I feel 
sure they will be performed with courtesy and har- 
mony. Cooperation must be our stronghold. By 
what we do, rather than by what we say, will our 
fellow-citizens judge us. I trust that when we 
retire from office it may be said of us that we have 
deserved the good opinion of all reasonable men. 
HEI^RY W. CLAPP.
