REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



To the City Council : 

The boartl of water commissioners submit herewith their 
report for the year ending December 31, 1S96, together 
with the report of the superintendent, giving details of the 
working of the system during the year, all of which is re- 
spectfully submitted for your careful consideration. 

The plant, as in former years, has shown a continual im- 
proyement along all lines. Nothing in the way .of extended 
work or outlay has been attempted during the year. Owing 
to the change of grade in some of the thoroughfares, some 
pipe has had to be relaid but no great extensions haye been 
made. 

The income shows a yery gratifying gain, and the contin- 
ued use of meters has demonstrated their practicability and 
more will be added each year. The plan, as stated in 
former reports, will be adhered to. 

The pumping plant has been maintained at practicalh'the 
same expense as the preyious year, and continues to do good 
work. 

The capacity of the high pressure system for fii'e protec- 
tion was hnely shown in October by an exhibition of the 
pressure on Main street. The large six-wa}' hydrants at the 
corners of Capitol, Park, and Centre streets were turned on, 
and at one time eighteen solid streams were pouring a yol- 
ume of \yater, before which the severest fire would give way. 
The works have never before been given such a test and the 
results were most gratifying, and should prove valuable to 
our citizens in securing reasonable rates of insurance on 
their property. 

Extension of the high pressure system to the new railroad 
shops has been asked for and the commissioners have granted 
the same, and the extension will be made in the spring. For 
this purpose we have had to buy some pipe. 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 213 

The recommendation of the superintendent for the exten- 
sion of the 30-inch iron pipe from the pumping station north 
towards the hU<e is a movement in the right direction, and 
plans will be made looking towards the consummation of this 
in the near future. The condition of the pipe lines of the city 
is a matter of some importance, and has been considered by 
the commissioners. Much of the cement-lined pipe has been 
in use twenty-four A'ears, and while good results have been 
obtained, yet there is an increasing liability of serious leaks 
and consequent da iiage. This can be remedied by relaying 
from year to year the old pipe lines with cast iron, and should 
be done as fast as the means will allow. 

The contract with the Penacook and Boscawen Water 
Precinct which has been in force one year, terminated 
December i, 1S96, and the water was shut oil". The present 
condition of the supplv in Penacook lake did not warrant 
the expenditure of a large sum in this direction, hence the 
action of the board. 

November i, 1S96, bonds to the amount of $10,000, be- 
came due and were paid from the income of the works, re- 
ducing the indebtedness to $680,000. Bonds will mature 
each succeeding year, and it is hoped that without any ex- 
traordinary expenditure, these will mostly be redeemed as 
they become due. 

The same careful and elEcient management of the work 
by the superintendent and his assistants has been continued 
during the year.

SERVICE PIPE. 

There have been laid during the year and connected with the 
main pipes, 61 service pipes, consisting of — 
60 1-inch, 1,600 feet. 

1 4-inch, 4 "

Wliole number of service pipes, 3,116; number discontinued, 
1; number in use at the present time, 3,115. 

Total* length of service pipes, 73,156 feet or 13.87 miles. 

As vou will notice by the record of pipe laid, no impor- 
tant extensions have been made. We have, however, pur- 
chased our usual amount of pipe ; the price has been lower 
than ever before, and we have thus provided a considerable 
stock at low cost for extensions in small sizes of pipe. We 
have now on hand 1,396 feet of 4-inch, 7,213 feet of 6-inch, 
64S feet of 8-inch, and 1,1 iS feet of lo-inch pipe. 



AVATEU DErAKTJIENT. 



221 



All the water rents for the year have been collected and we 
have not been compelled to shut oft" the water in any case to 
enforce the payment. 

We have set 235 meters during the year ; 4 have been 
taken out, making the total number now in use, 502. 

We have built 1,287 ^'^^^ *^^ substantial wire fence on the 
north and west sides of the Cooledge lot ; also 253 feet on the 
west side of the avenue leading from the Hopkinton road to 
the cottage at the lake, and 172 feet of picket fence in front 
of the cottage.

cook lake on the first day of each month :

The lowest point reached was Januarv i, being 174.35; 
the highest was Ma v i, iSi.io; mean height, 178.96, which 
was 7-8i feet higher than the mean lieight for the year 1S95. 

At its highest record, the water stood 12 feet above the 
lowest record of 189^ :ind 7.85 feet above the highest point 
of that year. 

Our immediate locality has l)een unusually favored by the 
rainfall of the 3-ear ; the spring freshet and rains of the sum- 
mer and fall came with great advantage to the lake, and the 
continued and stcadv rise of water makes us confident that 
there will be no occasion for anxiety in regard to low water 
for several years. The first record of height of water when 
the works were completed, was January i, 1S74, 175.90;- 
during that year, the water rose to 1S2. 50, and except for a 
few months early in 1877? this high level, with the slight va- 
riations incident to the change of seasons, was continued until 
1S80-81. In the latter part of 1880, the water began to fall, 
and February 10, 1S81, the lowest point was reached, 172. 



222 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The spring rains, however, soon brought the lake back, and 
although for several seasons the winter months lowered the 
record slightly, the average height continued to rise, until on 
Mav 39, 18S8, the water stood at 185.60, the highest point 
since the construction of the works, and above high water 
level. Unusually high water prevailed until 1S92, when the 
general drought throughout New England began to make it- 
self felt in water supplies. The mean height for the past 
few years has accordingly been low in comparison with 
former records, but after a careful study of this rise and fall 
of Penacook lake we feel sure that another period of high 
water has begun which will continue for a number of years. 

The cement-lined pipe in the works has been laid twenty- 
four years; during the past year we have had a number of 
serious breaks on some streets, thus increasing the expense 
of management and repairs; it is probable that this trouble 
w^ill continue and increase through the coming years ; more- 
over some of these original pipes are hardly large enough to 
furnish good hydrant service along with the increased con- 
sumption which must of necessity come with the growth of 
twenty-four years. I would therefore recommend that as a 
beginning of relaying this pipe, 1,700 feet of 20-inch cast- 
iron pipe be laid from the pumping station to a little north of 
the cemetery gate, to take the place of the original 14-inch 
cement-lined main laid in 1S73 ; a 6 or S-inch pipe on Rum- 
ford street, from Franklin to near Abbott street, a distance of 
about 1,000 feet; and in JNIonroe street from South State 
street to Grove street, 600 feet of 6-inch pipe. 

In closing this report I desire to extend to the president and 
members of the water board, and the employees of the de- 
partment, my sincere thanks for their uniform courtesy and 
co-operation in the discharge of the duties of my position. 

RespectfuHv submitted,

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. 



Report of Commissioner of Highways. 



To the City Coinicil : 

Gentlemex, — In accordance with custom, I hereby sub- 
mit the annual report of the highway department for the 
year ending December 31, 1S96. 

At first, I would call the attention of your honorable body to 
the appropriations as made for 1896 and the different items 
of expense to be met from them. The amount appropriated 
for roads and bridges was $30,000.00. But very little of 
this amount is available for any permanent work on highways 
and bridges as the expense of building and cleaning catch 
basins, the spring and fall cleaning of streets, the weekly 
night cleaning in the business section, and the expense of 
caring for snow must be taken from it. This year the cost 
of building and caring for catch basins was about $900.00. 
The removal of garbage in the spring and fall as recjuired by 
the ordinance of 1895, brought an additional expense of 
$2,000.00. The weekly cleaning and burning of garbage 
from the alleyways of the business blocks costs nearly 
$1,000.00 and without doubt the district must soon be ex- 
tended as calls are constantly being made for city teams to 
remove ashes, etc. Besides this, the macadam, concrete, and 
paving must be kept clean and gutters cleared, which calls for 
$1,000.00 more. By far the largest expense is for the care 
of snow and ice, which, while keeping the roads passable 
leaves nothing to show for the mone}^ expended. Our 
last winter was exceptionally favorable for this department 
and therefore left a portion of the appropriation. All these 



HIGHWAY DF.PAKTJIENT. ZOt 

items aggregated amount to quite a sum, but still the care of 
drinking fountains and watering troughs, and supplies for 
the department must come from this appropriation, and for 
two years past we have had a heavy expense on account of 
the spring freshets. Therefore, I would recommend that 
separate appropriations be made for permanent work, clean- 
ing streets, catch basins, and general maintenance, instead of 
the one now made for roads and bridges. 

The spring freshet did considerable damage on account of 
the great amount of ice, and the Gully Flill and East Concord 
roads were impassable for several days, being covered for 
some distance with solid ice from six to ten feet deep. 
Water and Hall streets, at the south end of the city, were 
quite badly washed. The Turnpike bridge, across the Sou- 
cook river, in Egvpt district, was also carried away. As 
there is another bridge near by, the matter of discontinuing 
the road was considered. The town of Pembroke decided 
to do so, but our city thought it best to rebuild the bridge. 
Bids were called for, for a bridge similar to the one across 
the Soucook river at Clough's Mills, so called. Five bids 
were received and the bid of George G. Jenness being the 
lowest, was accepted. The total cost of the bridge was 
$1,654.78, one half of which was paid by the town of Pem- 
broke. Bids for painting the same were received by this 
department, and the bid of A. C. Leavitt for $24.75 '^^^^ 
accepted. The bridge was opened for public travel about 
September first. The lower Soucook bridge was carried off 
the abutments, but with new plank and timber was replaced 
at an expense of $25.93. 

Besides these, considerable repairing has been done on 
the bridges within the citv. The iron bridge at Penacook 
was thought to need new stringers and roadway, but after 
commencing the repairs it was found that nearly all stringers 
were -in good condition. The roadway and sidewalk were 
I'eplanked, putting the bridge in good condition at less ex- 
pense than first expected. A new bridge was built on the 
Canterbury road, across Hackett's brook, in North Concord 



238 CITV OF CONCORD. 

district. Expense $198.79. The bridge across Turkey river 
at St. Paul's School was replanked at an expense of $39.81. 
The Twin bridge at Penacook is in an extremely bad con- 
dition and needs immediate attention. Last year it was 
strengthened and repaired, but I find it is still settling in the 
centre. 

During the past season, considerable macadamizing has 
been done. Pleasant street from Main to State, Main street 
from Pleasant to Concord, Warren street from State to Spring, 
and prepared for concrete from State to Main, South State 
street from Thompson to Perley, and Park street from Main 
to State. Besides, our roller was rented to the cit}' of 
Franklin for ten days. The macadam of last season has 
shown that it is a practical road to build, as it has stood the 
very severe w^eather and heavy teaming well. Little repairs 
have been necessary except in cases of opening the street 
which is becoming too common a practice. The streets are 
constantly being dug up to put in gas, sewer, or water pipes. 
Under the present system the commissioner has no knowledge 
when or bv whom the work is done. As he is responsible 
for the good condition of the streets, it seems that the granting 
of permits for opening and obstructing them should belong to 
this department. 

There are a number of streets in our city which are in a very 
bad condition, for example, the Penacook road from West 
Concord to Penacook, and Merrimack street from Rolfe 
street to Penacook street, in Penacook. There has been no per- 
manent work done on these roads for many years, having only 
been patched and the material on them is now completely 
worn out. To place them in anything like fair condition it 
w^ould necessitate considerable expense. If our city had a 
portable stone crusher which could be moved to these roads 
and the stone there used, they might be macadamized and 
placed in an excellent condition at less expense, as the cost of 
carting stone to and from the crusher would be saved, than to 
repair them with the means we now have. Main street from 
Centre to Pitman is in very poor condition. After rains and 



HIGHWAY DEPAKTJIENT. 239 

in the spring it is very muddy, as it is impossible to drain it 
west of the Street Railway track. I would recommend that 
the street be paved and hope the council will take some action 
on it. Bridge street from Main to the railroad bridge should 
receive like attention, as traffic on it has increased largely of 
late. 

In July, a petition was presented to this department asking 
for the concreting of Warren street from State to Main. 
After a meeting of the board of aldermen to consider the ad- 
visability of granting it, it was referred to the commissioner 
with full power. As the petition was considered a strong 
one, inasmuch as it was signed by forty-five real estate 
owaiers, the work was done. Although there was some oppo- 
sition to it, since it has been completed the citizens seem 
satisfied with the work. Another petition has since been re- 
ceived for concreting School street from the Capital Fire 
Insurance building to State street. This would place the 
street in good condition and I hope the work will be done 
next season. 

Verv little work has been done on new streets. Langdon 
street, at the new railroad shops, has been filled with grade 
from Turnpike street, Park ridge and Ridge road have been 
made passable, but not much work done on them. Engel 
street, at West Concord, has been laid out and put in good 
condition. In the past two years, portions of the River road 
in Penacook, from the Borough to the Horse Hill bridge, 
which were verv sandy, have been hardened and greatly im- 
proved. Considerable work has been done on concrete walks 
the past season. The matter of laying a concrete walk from 
Waverlv street to Blossom Hill Cemetery, which was granted 
six years ago, is still unsettled. It ought to be laid as there 
is much travel to the cemetery. 

The effects of the maple tree borer of last season were 
plainly seen in the spring, by the number of trees dead and 
dying. The shade trees have been quite free of pests the past 
season, but trees in all parts of the city are dying fast, which 
in many cases is caused, I think, by defective gas pipes. 



240 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The new shed, for storage purposes, which I recommended 
in my hist report, vvas erected on the city lot early in the spring. 
Bids were received and the contract awarded to the Hutchin- 
son Building Co., the lowest bidder. The sprinkling the 
past seascMi has been done quite satisfactorily, and if the pre- 
cinct is not extended, the present appropriation is sufficient. 
In April, the state board of agriculture issued a call tor a Good 
Roads Convention to be held in Concord, May 13 and 14. 
Circulars were seiit to the different manufacturers of road 
making machinery, inviting them to exhibit their goods. Our 
citv w-as asked to have their steam roller and other improved 
machinery on exhibition and to furnish material for those ex- 
hibiting. In response to the invitation to exhibit, the Climax 
Road Machine Co., of Marathon, N. Y., sent two road 
machines and one portable stone crusher ; American Road 
Machine Co., Boston, Mass., a full line of street and road 
working machinery; F. C. Austin Manufacturing Co., Chi- 
cago, 111., one road machine and one portable stone crusher. 
Although the number of machines sent were small the advan- 
tage of tlie impro\ed implements for good road making was 
fully shown. During the first day of the convention, .the 
portable crushers were at work on the city lot on School 
street, and our steam roller on Park street, which was mac- 
adamized from Main to State street. On the second day, 
road machines were given a trial on Penacook street. The 
mayors, superintendents of streets, and selectmen of the 
towns were invited and although the attendance was small 
mucii interest was manifested. 

In conclusion, I desire to return my thanks to his honor 
the mavor, the city council, the committees on streets and 
sidewalks and roads and bridges, for their many courtesies 
and consideration in dealing with matters relating to the 
highwav department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALFRED CLARK, 
Commissioner of Hig'hxvays.

ELECTRICAL DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF ELECTRIC WIRES. 



To Jiis Honor the ^layor ajid tJie City Council : 

I have the honor to submit herewith my second annual 
report. The work done during the past year, under the su- 
pervision of this department, by the several electric com- 
panies has been gratifying and cannot but be a benefit to the 
parties interested and to the city. While there has been con- 
siderable done in the way of improvements, there still re- 
mains much to be done under the resolutions passed by the 
city government December 29, 1894. In many cases this is 
being carried forward willingly by the officials of the differ- 
ent companies. 

Concord Land and Water Power Company. 

The work done bv this company since January i, 1S96, has 
been very largelv in the direction of improving the insulation 
and the mechanical strength of overhead construction. There 
has been a shortening of the total length of their circuits some 
seven miles, bv the removal of wire which, while not dead, 
was unnecessarily long. A large amount of the defectively 
covered wire has been taken in and what remains will be re- 
moved after more vu^gent matters have been considered. 
The arc circuits have been divided into a large number of 
sections, to the end that an open circuit may be quickly lo- 
cated, and, while search for it is in progress, the service can 
be maintained in the remainder of the circuit. Work for a 
time has been mainly directed to the rearrangement of the 
triphase distributing apparatus, looking to the removal of the 
possibility of crosses between the prniiary and secondary cir- 
cuits, and considerable has been accomplished in this direction. 



ELECTRICAL DEPARTMENT. 257 

The reels used in lowering and hoisting- the street lamps 
are in niany cases attached to polls too near the ground, mak- 
ing them dangerous to the puhlic where they become charged 
with heavy currents of electricity through the accidental 
loosening of the wires. I hope, with your co-operation, to 
have these put in a safe condition as soon as possible. There 
still lemains a large number of dead or abandoned poles in 
the streets, which should be removed either bv the Concord 
Land and Water Power Company or by the citv. A large 
number of wires attached to trees yet remain, which carry 
heavy currents for the arc lights. My attention is frequently 
called to these by property owners, who have spent a long 
time growing the trees for shade and beauty and who feel that 
they should have some protection from the ruin of fire caused 
by the crossing of wires not properly insulated, in wet 
weather. In m\' opinion these wires should all be removed 
and placed on substantial poles. I recommend that the corn- 
pan}' be asked to make such changes within a reasonable 
time. 

Postal Telegraph Cable Company. 

During the vear 1S96, this company has rebuilt its line, 
putting in new poles and wires from Nashua to Concord, 
and changing its line from the state camp ground by taking 
the southern side of the road, which will lessen the liability 
of coming in contact with Concord Land and Water Power 
Company wires. The Postal Telegraph Cable Company has 
placed substantial structures on the iron bridge. A cable 
box has been placed on a pole on Bridge street and a cable 
1,600 feet long carries the wires from this box south on North 
]Main street to a local office situated in vSmith's block. I con- 
sider the work this company has done from the state camp 
ground to its office one of the best and most substantial pieces 
of electrical engineering in the city. The company has some 
changes yet to make in its call box system, which, when 
done, will place it in the front ranks of efficiencv. 



258 CITY OF CONCORD. 

CoNX'ORD Street Railway. 

This company has maintained its system of wiring to a 
fair degree of efficiency. There has been during the year a 
large number of old poles removed that had become unsafe 
to carry the heavy wires required for work and strong new 
ones have been substifuted in their place. Almost all the 
guard wire system has been overhauled and put in a fair con- 
dition. There have been new guard wires placed on Liberty 
street to protect the fire alarm from possible contact. 

Fire Alarm Service. 

This part of our wire system has been maintained in its 
usual fine state of repair and everything is being done to keep 
Concord ahead of anything of a like nature in the state. 

Western Union Telegraph Company. 

The plant of this company- has been kept in its usual good 
condition. There seems at this time nothing for me to rec- 
ommend in connection with its maintenance. 

Consolidation of Poles. 

I suggest that some arrangement be made so that one large 
pole could take the place of from two to six small ones. In 
this manner, all parties could occupy the same pole, thus 
doing away with such needless trouble and annoyance, as in 
the case of Mrs. Peter Sanborn on South Main street, or as 
shown at the corner of Freight and South Main streets, or at 
other places to which your attention might be called. 

In conclusion, I think, as a whole, our electric service and 
construction will compare favorably with that of any other in 
the state. I wish to acknowledge that whatever success I may 
have had in the discharge of my duties as inspector is due 
largely to the kind support that I have received from his 
honor the mayor.

REPORT OF CITY ENGINEER. 



Office of City Engineer, 

Concord, N. H., December 31, 1S96. 

To the City Coitncil : 

In accordance with the ordinance creating this department, 
I herewith present the fourth annual report for your consid- 
eration, together with a statement of the work done luicler its 
supervision, for the year ending December 31, 1S96. 

The cost of all sewers constructed during the past year, 
the repairs made and cost of .same, will be found upon the 
following pages. 

Plans for the work in hand have been matle as required, 
the sewer plans revised, additions made, and all errors 
found in locations corrected. There 3'et remains much to do 
upon these plans to show the sewer system of the city as it 
should be. Many details were left oft^ the plans under the 
old methods, which we now endeavor to show and which 
will be of great service in the future. 

All work called for bv the heads of departments has been 
disposed of as required. 

A contour map of Rollins Park has been made, to assist 
the park commissioners in their svstem of development at 
this park. 

Considerable time was spent at Blossom Hill Cemetery in 
connection with the grading done this season. 

Plans for the masonrv and suj^erstructur^ of the Soucook 
River bridge, on the Pittsfield road, were made, and the 
bridge built jointly by the city of Concord and the town of 



CITY ENGINEER. 



2G1 



Pembroke. A statement of the expense attending- the same 
will be found in the report of the commissioner of highways. 
The "Twin bridge" at Penacook should receive your early 
attention, as it has passed the stage of economical repairs 
and is in worse shape than it was before repairs were made 
on it in 1S94. 

The map of the city has been completed from Bow line to 
the cemetery in West Concord. This winter we expect to 
plot the territory from the West Concord cemetery to the 
Boscawen line, giving a continuous map from Bow line to 
the Boscawen line and from the Merrimack river to the 
westerly end of Penacook. 

Such time as could be spared from the work under way 
was devoted to the extension of the city survey. 

The employes of this department for the past year have 
been: Frank W. Brown, assistant engineer; Carl Hunting- 
ton, Fred W. Lang, transitmen ; Charles H. Chandler and 
Joseph Odlin, rodmen, who have rendered valuable assist- 
ance in their diflerent positions. 

I wish to express my appreciation for the support given me 
by the mayor and the members of the city council during the 
past season. 

The expenses of this department for the year 1S95 are as 
follows :

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 



To the City Council: 

The trustees of the Public Library herewith transmit the 
report of the librarian of that institution and ask your atten- 
tive consideration of the information and suggestions therein 
contained. 

The report is so comprehensive and exhaustive that sup- 
plementary remarks of our own would seem to be superflu- 
ous and quite unnecessary. You will correctly infer from a 
perusal of this report that recent accessions to the library 
have established for it a high standard of excellence in almost 
every department of literature. 

It is believed that no scholar, student, artisan, or workman, 
will fail to find upon its shelves information, more or less 
extensive, upon every subject he may desire to examine ; 
and the unprecedented circulation of books during the last 
year furnishes conclusive evidence of the high appreciation 
by our people of the benefits which the library confers. 

We cannot doubt that a liberal appropriation by the city 
government will enable us to continue and maintain the ines- 
timable advantages to the community which the library 
affords. 



272 CITY OF COXCORD. 

In submitting this report, tlie trustees cannot omit to record 
their high appreciation of the untiring industry united to an 
enthusiastic zeal of the librarian and her assistants, and to 
make thankful mention of the unvarying courtesy and kindly 
patience with which the wants and the very numerous inqui- 
ries of the patrons of the library have been served.

PUBLIC LIBRAKY, 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN. 



To tJic Board of Trustees of the Coticord Public 
Library : 

Gentlemen, — The fortieth annual report of the Hbrary 
is herewith presented. 

A few statistics will best outline the year's growth ; they 
are as follows : 



Volumes added during 1S96: 

By purchase . . . . .

Periodicals bound . . . .

Of the 916 volumes purchased, many have been to replace 
long-lost copies, a large number to supersede those un- 
wholesomely dirty, a score or more at the recommendation 
of teachers for their class work, and many after consulta- 
tion with specialists in all lines, from theology to stone-cut- 
ting. There has been a steady endeavor to bring the depart- 
ment of science more up to date. The accessions of new 
books have been published by the JMoiiitor and the Patriot 
with unvarying courtesy. 

18 



274 CITY OK CONCORD. 

In the 90,000 books mentioned as delivered during 1S96 
are not included those hundreds constantly selected and 
taken to applicants in the reference room, or those frequently 
handed out to be perused in the reading room. 

The increase in circulation is especially gratifying in a year 
when campaign clubs and bicycles were in competition with 
our shehes. 

Concord has always had the reputation of having the 
largest circulation of any city in the state, exceeding Dover 
in 1S95 by 10,000, and Manchester by 25,000, and it is to be 
presumed that the gain of 3,000 this last year will enable it to 
still keep the lead in number. 

With this circulation of over 90,000 only 'five books have 
been lost and not paid for. This showing has not been 
reached without great eftbrt. For example, to secure one 
overdue book the weeklv dun bv postal card was sent for a 
month, then a messenger dispatched twice, then the librarian 
went once to the boy's house and four times to his place of 
business. Miles have been walked and letters written even 
to California to trace families who have moved without keep- 
ing their written promise to give immediate notice at the 
librarv of any change of residence. The five books for 
which it has been impossible to get satisfaction have all been 
lost by persons who have simply vanished from town. 

The large number of new borrowers {^2^)) does not in- 
clude transient applicants or those from out-of-town who pay 
for the privilege of taking books. 

The chief event of the year has been the recovery of the 
library from what Eugene Field calls catalogitis ; for July i 
the card catalogue was finished, in half the twenty-four months 
estimated the work would require, notwithstanding that 
with the shelf list or inventory made at the same time, over 
50,000 cards were written. These are housed in three fine 
oak cases furnished by that base of supplies, the Library Bu- 
reau on Franklin street in Boston. It has already been 
stated that each book has its author and subject, or if fiction, 
its author and title card, and there are manifold cross-ref- 



PUBLIC LIBRAKY. 275 

erences which direct a person looking at the subject elec- 
tricity, for instance, to look also under the subjects electro- 
magnets, dynamos, etc. 

The card catalogue is most helpful to the library staH', and 
is already consulted by the public even beyond our hopes. 

The pressure of work is now transferred to rearranging 
the volumes upon the shelves so that books relating to any 
one subject shall lie shelved together, arranged alphabeticalh' 
by the authors' names, and all the novels of anv one writer 
will stand together in alphabetical order. This classify ing re- 
quires that every one of tlie 20,000 volumes be taken down, 
its old label scraped ofl', a new one put on, and its new call 
number written three times — once on the outside label, once 
on the inside pocket, and once on the book slip ; and the 
book, having been dusted, is then carried to a new shelf 
which has been washed. 

We began this rearranging in October and are doing it 
without withdrawing any sections from circulation, with only 
an occasional extra helper, and along with our heavy winter 
work ; and we sometimes stop to hunt for a speciallj^ de-- 
manded book among hundreds piled on the floor, but we ex- 
pect by February i to have the whole library in order. 

Another item of work accomplished has been the erasing 
of the old penciled call-numbers from the 3^,000 cards in the 
catalogue. 

The public will be greatly benefited by. this new arrange- 
ment, for the c^uicker an assistant can gather an armful of 
books which will answer one question, the quicker she can 
turn to the next applicant, or the applicant himself miiy step 
in to the shelf where he will find all the resources of the 
library on the subject he is investigating ; and the most nearly 
allied subjects will precede and follow. 

In adopting the Dewey system of classification we foil into 
line with the best and largest libraries in the United States, 
in which it has been tried for seventeen years. The broad 
divisions of the system are : 



276 CITY OF COXCOKD. 

o. General Works, 



I . 


Philosoph}-, 
Religion, 


3* 
4- 

5- 


Sociology, 
Philology, 
Natural Science, 


6. 


Useful Arts, 


7- 


Fine Arts, 


S. 


Literature, 


9- 


History. 



But each class has sub-divisions; for example : 500 will 
be the classification number for works on all the sciences, but 
510 for those on arithmetic, 520 for astronomy, 530 for 
physics, 540 for chemistry, 550 for geology, 560 for paleon- 
tology, 570 for biology, 5S0 for botany, 590 for zoolog3\ 

Accompanying this class number is the book number 
which prevents confusion of different works on the same sub- 
ject. And the initial letter of the author's name will be the 
initial letter of the book-number, so that, for instance, the 
total call-number of a work on botany by Gray would be 

580 
G79. 

The expansiveness of this Dewey system is such that an 
indefinite number of books can be added or the entire library 
moved without making void these new call-numbers which 
tell of each book Vk^hat it is and where it is. 

To ease the books from the crowded condition which they 
were in, the old book-cases in the upper stack room have 
been drawn into the middle of the floor and new shelves run 
along the side walls. This uses up all the available shelf 
space in the building. All borrowers have been given new 
cards suited to the putting down of these call-numbers, and a 
catalogue containing them will soon be printed of all the 
fiction in the library. 

In order to induce people to read something besides novels, 
a student's card will be allowed each borrower on which he 
may take out one work of non-fiction at the same time he has 



PUBLIC LIBKAKY. Zti 

out a story on his other card. Another year we shall have 
the data wherewith to register the circulation of books by 
classes, and can then see whether the Concord pulilic reads 
more biography, science, history, or religion. 

The joy the librarian feels when a child aspires or can be 
led to something better in his reading is as keen as that felt 
by a parent or teacher over an upw^ard step, and it is an 
equally great pleasure to have an adult seek and find on our 
shelves the literarv tools he craves to make him a cleverer 
artisan or a more profound thinker. 

The confidence and kindness of the trustees and the cheer- 
ful co-operation and verv arduous work of the assistants are 
most gratefully acknowledged. 

Respectfullv submitted, 

GRACE BLANCHARD, 

Librarian. 



SANITARY DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF BOARD OF HEALTH. 



To Jus Honor the ]\Iayor and the City Council : 

Gentlemen, — The board of liealth respectfully submit here- 
with the report of their executive officer, which summarizes 
the department's work during 1S96. The board have held 
regular meetings each Saturday afternoon during the year at 
their office in Button's block. Careful attention has been 
given to all matters presented. Especial pains has been taken 
to keep Concord abreast with sanitary progress and to secure 
an efficient administration of the rules and regulations pro- 
vided b\ state and municipal enactment for the protection of 
the public health. The board were especially interested in 
the conference of sanitary officers held in this city in October, 
and belie\e the state association then formed will accomplish 
much toward securing better enforcement of the sanitary laws 
as well as improvement of the code. The annual meetings 
of the association will be held in our cit}', and we wish those 
who feel an interest in the subject of sanitation w'ould make 
an effort to be present at some or all of the sessions. As in 
former 3-ears, the board ha\e been placed under great obliga- 
tion by the courtesv and co-operation of his honor the mayor 
and the members of the city council. 

The board again desire to record their appreciation of the 
work done by the executive officer of this department, 
Charles E. Palmer, wdiose interest in his work and his 
especial fitness for it make his services to the public each 
year more valuable. The board feel that his fellow-citizens 
appreciate his efficiency, for on many occasions unsolicited 



SANITARY DEl'ARTilENT. 279 

spoken or written testimonials have been given, but they wish 
to call especial attention to his work during- the past year as 
shown by the records of the department. Mr. Palmer in the 
twelve months of 1S96 investigated 53S complaints of 
nuisances; inspected 712 blocks, houses, etc. ; supervised the 
making of 83 connections with the sewers; placarded ^77 
cases of contagious diseases, and made 1,411 visits thereto; 
attended eight funerals; fumigated 150 rooms and five carri- 
ages; burned 47 pieces of bedding ; issued 399 burial permits; 
gave 249 permits for children to return to school, and made 
14 plumbing tests. The above facts show^ how industrious 
the health officer has been : we would add our testimon\' to 
the elficiencv with which all of these manifold duties have 
been performed, and congratulate the citv on having so com- 
petent and faithful an official in a position which means much 
to the welfare of a community. The board would especially 
commend Mr. Palmer's firmness in securing compliance with 
the regulations of the department. The public generalh" co- 
operate heartily with the officials in a careful observance of 
the city's sanitary code. The exceptions are very few in the 
course of a year. One of the most notable is the objection 
sometimes made to fumigation, although no duty is more 
clearly prescribed by the sanitary regulations than this. It 
has been the constant aim of the board to treat all fairh', in 
this matter as in all others. 

Diphtheria. 

Our plan of microscopical examination in the diagnosis of 
diphtheria, inaugurated last year, met with the very hearty 
approval of t!ie physicians and has been continued with great 
satisfaction this year. Prior to this innovation, a benign in- 
flammation was not infrequently diagnosed as diphtheria v»ith 
the consequent placarding of the house, quarantine, and dis- 
comfiture of the family ; again, the malignant throat was 
not recognized until the unexpected death happened, — then 
the neighborhood was alarmed and our board unjustly crit- 
icised because isolation was not enforced. All this may now 
be obviated by making use of this method of diagnosis freely 



:^'*^0 CITV OF CONCORD, 

placed at tlie disposal of the profession. Dr. A. K. Dav has 
very acceptably attended to our bacteriological work since 
July I. Very few outside the medical fraternity understand 
the meaning of rubbing a piece of wire across the inside of 
the throat, and it may be well to state its meaning. Diph- 
theria is now believed to be due to a characteristic bacillus : 
the wire introduced into the throat or nose comes in contact 
with the germs; it is then drawn across a nutrient medium in 
the glass tube wherein the germs develop and under the 
microscope are recognized. We are herebv enabled within 
twenty-four hours to know the nature of the membra.ne and, 
if the bacilli are not present, are assured of the person's right 
to mingle with others. We hope the public appreciate how- 
much this means to them ; chancg has given place to certainty 
and a diagnosis made as accurately as science of to-day will 
allow. 

We are rejoiced to note the more general use of antitoxine 
in the treatment of this disease and are able to say its results 
have been gratifying; out of the fiftyrfive cases reported to us 
during the year, it was used in twenty-five of them with a 
mortality of one, or four per cent. In the thirty cases not 
treated by antitoxine there was a mortality of seven, or twenty- 
three and one third per cent. The death-rate of all cases was 
fourteen and one half per cent. The cases where antitoxine 
were used were not selected cases but were of the usual order ; 
in fact, the serum therapy was not resorted to in some of 
them until it seemed they were about to prove fatal and in 
the only death under its use the parents of the child refused 
to allow the attending physician to make the injection until it 
was almost certain death would ensue. 

This experience is certainly worthy of publicity. The 
figures cannot be disputed ; this so-called new treatment, other 
things being equal, has in our city during the past twelve 
months proven to be six times as efficacious in the saving of 
lives as the old treatment. The experimental stage has 
passed ; its standing in medicine to-day is pronounced ; our 
phvsicians are alive to the advancements of the times and are 
to be congratulated on their interest taken in this question. 



sanitary defartjient. 281 

Measles, 

While along certain lines our work has become more scien- 
tific and efiective, as in the management of diphtheria and 
scarlet fever, on the other hand the present methods in 
caring for measles seem to be of no avail in controlling the 
disease. If we are ever to obtain satisfactory results from 
our labor, the same rigid system must be followed as in the 
more severe ailments. 

Tuberculosis. 

An examination of our vital statistics reveals the deplora- 
ble fact that eight and one half per cent, of our loss has been 
due to this most deadly of all preventable diseases, the subject 
of study of medical men and sanitarians everywhere. This, 
of all infectious diseases, is the most amenable to hygienic 
measures for its prevention — now our only resource. The 
encouraarin"' feature is, that statistics show a decreasing mor- 
tality, due doubtless to an ever increasing general knowledge 
of the sources of danger and the true nature of the disease. 
The public know that to produce it, the tubercle-bacillus, 
the germ, must find lodgment in the human body. This 
may be through the air we breath, poisoned by sputa from a 
tuberculous subject, which has been allowed to become dry, 
and if pulverized floats as dust. The remedy is, to never 
allow it to dry in spittoons, on cloths, or in any other wav. 
Moisture holds the germs and prevents absolutely their difib- 
sion in the air. Attendants in sick rooms, or wherever such 
disease is suspected, should remove all dust from furnishings 
with a damp cloth and not simph' float it in the air for in- 
halation or redistribution. Another source of danger, a very 
grave one, is our food supply, such as milk from tuberculous 
cows. This has become more criminally inexcusable now 
that the disease is so readily detected ; but whatever general 
legislation is proposed there should be coupled with it certain 
requirements in the care of stock, pertaining to light, ventila- 
tion, etc. Dark, damp, ill-ventilated, crowded quaiters favor 



282 CITY OF CONCORD. 

the growth of tlie tubercle-bacillus in man or beast. In- 
struction in our public schools on this subject Avould greatly 
aid in its limitation and soon prove that the disease, terrible 
though it be, is not a necessary evil. 

In case of death, apartments, furnishings, clothing, etc., 
should be thoroughly fumigated and cleaned under the di- 
rection of the health officer. In nearly all cases it is being 
done but there is no ordinance requiring it. 

Fumigation. 

Sulphin- fumigation is possessed of so many disagreeable 
features, that we were deeph' interested in the proposed use 
of formic aldehyde gas for the purpose, and in conjunction 
with Dr. Watson, of the state board of health, and our bacteri- 
ologist. Dr. Day, a series of experiments were conducted to 
test its efficiency. 

Cultures of the Klebs-Loeffler bacillus, the germ of diph- 
theria, were used, but while the gas was generated in the 
strength supposed to be requisite, .and was found far more 
agreeable than sulphur fumes, and harmless to everything in 
the room, it was also ineffective on the germs. It is hoped 
that by perfection of this method or some other equally im- 
objectionable one, sulphur fumigation may soon be relegated 
to the past. 

Plumbing. 

The board would renew its recommendations of past years in 
regard to an inspector of plumbing, but the experience of our 
sister cities would seem to show that general legislation is 
needed as well as municipal ordinance.

T'o the Board of Health : 

Gentlemen, — I submit hefevvith my annual report, 
together with the vital statistics for the year ending Decembei

the past year. It is the aim of this department to pay strict 
attention to all matters affecting the public health, and the 
department has been reasonably successful in bringing about 
good results, as this report will show. The number of re- 
quests for investigation, and complaints for existing nuisances, 
and those found by house inspection, are shown bv the fol-

The above complaints have been duly inspected, and when 
iustihable an order has been issued. As a rule these orders 
are well complied with ; the exceptions are reported to you at 
your weekly meetings, and an order of the board issued. 

Sanitary Inspections. 

This work has been extended during the past year over 
sections of the city contiguous to those inspected in 1895, 
and has included the business and tenement blocks in the 
compact part of the city. The method of carrying out this 
work and recording results has been the same as that insti- 
tuted last vear. This systematic plan of work is of great 
value to the board, in that it enables it to act impartially and 
not feel obliged to wait until someone enters a complaint, 
which, though often just, is sometimes made from other 
motives than those of sanitary reform. The following table 
will give the amount of work done in this connection :

Sewer Inspectiox. 

In compliance with the city ordinance I have endea\ored 
to perform my duty as regards the enforcement of the rules 
and regulations relative to sewers and drains. In three cases 
parties have attempted to make connections with the main 
sewer without having the same inspected, but in each case 
they have been made to conform to the regulations, as soon as 
the fact became known. During the year, eighty-three sewer 
connections have been made, a complete record filed in the 
office of the board of health, and copies sent monthlv to the 
city council. The following table shows the various sizes 
and kinds of pipe used :

It would be of much benefit if such change could be. made 
in the city ordinances as would place the granting of permits 
to enter the sewer in the direct control of the inspector's 
office, in order that he might be informed in season to make 
inspection as occasion may require. 

Public Health. 

The general health of the citv during the year 1896 has 
compared favorably with previous years, the number of 
deaths being 343, a mortality of 14.5 per 1,000 inhabitants. 
The mortuary table furnishes nearly all the information that 
could be desired. 

Contagious Diseases. 

The total number of cases of diseases dangerous to the 
public health which have been reported to the board during 
the year can be seen in the following table. In the control 
of this public danger I have endeavored to strictly enforce the 
rules which were revised and adopted in 1895. The school 
pamphlets have been found of great service, and the thanks 
of the board are due the teachers in the public schools for a 
faithful compliance with the conditions of admitting children 
who have been kept out of school by reason of contagious 
disease.

Diphtheria. 

It will be seen by the above table that 55 cases have been 
reported with a fatality of 8, as compared ^vith 35 cases in 
189^, with the same fatality. Sixty bacteriological examina- 
tions haye been made which haye enabled physicians to make 
as early a diagnosis of the disease as possible. Of the 60 ex- 
aminations 24 proved to be negative, which cases would have 
been held and treated as true diphtr.eria under the old system. 
Thirty-two re-examinations have been made to determine the 
time when it was safe to discharge the diphtheritic patients 
from isolation. Antitoxine has been used to some extent 
with excellent results in reducing the percentage of. deaths to 
the number of cases. In onlv a single instance has death 
resulted where antitoxine has been used. The expense of 
the bacteriological examinations has been $212 for year 1896. 

ScAKLET Fever. 

There have been but four cases of scarlet fever reported 
during the ^■ear, none proving fatal, as compared with 44 
cases in 1895, with a fatality of 8. All cases were promptly 
isolated and its spread was thus prevented. 

A1easi.es. 

Four hundred and fifty-two cases of measles have been re- 
ported to the board during the year. Between the months of 
September and December we experienced the greatest epi- 
demic of this disease known in the history of the board. 
While no deaths resulted, man}- classes in school were sadly 
depleted. It is difficult for the board to prevent the spread 
of this disease on account of its extreme contagiousness and 
from the fact that many people look upon it as one of the 
necessaiy ills to which children are exposed, and oftentimes 
object to taking the necessary precaution to prevent infection, 
some persons even going so far as to expose their children 
voluntarily to the disease in order to get over with it.

Typhoid Fever. 

This disease has declined in the past year; i^ cases were 
reported to this office during the year and 5 deaths resulted. 
Eight of the cases were imported, that is, the disease had 
been contracted elsewhere and manifested itself shortly after 
the patient reached our city. In only two instances where 
the disease existed have I found defective plumbing and gen- 
eral unsanitar3- condition of premises. In this connection, I 
would call attention, as in other years, to the importance of a 
code of plumbing rules, under the care of an inspector of 
plumbing.

Recommendations. 

I would respectfully recommend that the ambulance be 
fitted with rubber tires ; such tires are now used in many 
places, and our ambulance should be fitted up so that any 
person who should be injured could be carried to their homes 
or to the hospital as comfortably as possible. 

The lobby at Penacook is in a wretched condition and it is 
wholly unfit for use. 



308 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The boiler in the police station is defective and should be 
replaced by a new one. 

I will i-enew my recommendation for a stable suitable for a 
horse, wagon, and ambulance. 

It can be built after the same architectural design as the 
police station for $i,ooo. 

In submitting my report I desire to express my gratitude to 
the board of police commissioners. His Honor Mayor 
Henry Robinson, and the city council for their considerate 
treatment of this department. Thanks are due to Harry G. 
Sargent, city solicitor, for valuable assistance rendered. 

To all who have contributed to our success we extend our 
thanks. 

To the members of the force my grateful acknowledgment 
and thanks are tendered, for their efficiency and promptness 
in the discharge of their duties. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G. SCOTT LOCKE, 

City Alarshal.

REPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council : 

I hereby submit m}- annual report as solicitor. 

The only causes in which the city was interested as a party, 
that were pending at the date of my last annual report were 
the. suits of Kemp t-. Concord and Mary J. Gay et al v. 
Concord. The first of the aboye suits was settled by my ad- 
vice, by the payment of two hundred dollars ($200) which, 
in yiew of the tacts of the case, I regarded as a wise settlement 
for the city. The case of Gay v. Concord is still pending, 
no action haying been taken by the plaintiff to bring the case 
to trial. During the last year, by the instruction of the city 
council, I haye brought a few suits in fayorof the city of Con- 
cord against indiyiduals to recover taxes which were unpaid. 
They ha\ e nearl}^ all been settled up and are of no public in- 
terest or importance, lieing for small amounts and cases where 
the city has no lien to enforce the payment by a sale of the 
property and a suit is the only remedy which the city had. 

On the third day of July, 1S96, by instruction of a special 
committee of the city goyernment consisting of the finance 
committee, with the city solicitor added, I instituted suits 
against the bondsmen of Albert I. Foster for the years 1893, 
1894, and 189=5, and caused their real estate to be attached. 
These suits were entered at the October term of 1896 
of the supreme court for this county and are still pending 
therein. Since the suits were brought, an offer of twenty per 
cent, of the amount claimed by the city was made by the 
bondsmen to the special committee of the city goyernment, 
before referred to, and the offer was refused. 

During the year advice and assistance have been furnished 
by me to the officers of the different departments of the city 
government, as requested.

City Solicitor.

PUBLIC PARKS. 



REPORT OF PARK COMMISSIONERS. 



To tJic City Council: 

In accordance with the ordinance, the park commissioners 
submit herewith their annual report for the year ending 
December 31, 1S96. 

Tlie appropriations were made as follows : 

White Park ..... $3,250 

Rollins Park ..... 1,000 

Penacook Park . . . . . 100 

Parks and commons .... 550 

The work of improvement during the year has been more 
than in other years. At White Park marked progress 
has been made in filling, also in the planting of trees and 
shrubs. Howexer, the greatest improvement has been made 
at the outlet of the pond by the placing of a stone bridge. 
The plans were drawn by Mr. George B. Howe, and the 
contract was awarded to Mr. Ola Anderson for $775 and 
$3.50 a perch for the stone foimdation. Nothing has been 
attempted which has added so much to the eftectiveness and 
adornment of the park, and when completed with grade, and 
shrubbery planted, it will present a most attractive appearance. 

A friend interested in the development of the park has 
contributed the sum of fifty dollars towards the completion of 
the bridge, an exami^le which we hope some of our citizens 
will follow. 

One of the needs of the park at the present time is an 
entrance and a permanent fence. 

The lawns have been kept in a very attractive condition 
this year, and \york has been facilitated by the purchase of a 
horse lawn mower, thus enabling more and better work to be 
accomplished. 



PUBLIC I'ARKS. 315 

There has been received from the sale of wood $116.65. 
Some action should be taken whereby the Rowell lot, so 
called, cornering on White and Beacon streets adjoining the 
park, could be secured, at the original cost of $1,400. 
Upon this lot is a large amount of grade, and the park has 
already had the benefit of a large amoimt without cost. This 
has been referred to in previous reports and fully explained. 

There will need to be a further appropriation for the pay- 
ment of the bridge, and the question of the water supply has 
been considered by the park commissioners, and an appro- 
priation will be needed to make the present supply more 
efficient. The use of water is a necessity during the dry 
months, for without it many of the shrubs and plants suffer. 

It will soon be necessary to have a special policeman 
stationed in the park during a part of every day and a larger 
part of Sunday. 

The use of bicvcles in the park has been permitted, yet the 
commissioners have had many complaints in regard to same, 
and it is hoped when the play-ground is conipleted that a 
bicycle track will be one of the features. 

With the limited appropriation that we have had from year 
to year, the extension and improvement of the park has been 
necessarily slow. When taking into consideration that within 
a quarter of a mile of the park, since the improvements 
began, there has been an increase, at a conservative estimate, 
of $300,000, it is safe to sav that the city has received many 
times over the amount that has been expended on this one 
park. This feature alone, it would seem, would convince the 
most skeptical that whatever money the city invests in its 
park system would be one of the best investments it could 
make. This has been demonsti^ated in many cities, and 
needs but a careful inquiry to satisfy one in regard to it. 

We hope your honorable board will make a generous 
appropriation for the year 1897. 

ROLLINS PARK. 

Improvements at Rollins Park have been very marked. 
The appropriation has been nearly exhausted, and shows a 



31 G CITY OF CONCOHD. 

careful expenditure of same. The improvements do not 
reveal themselves to the casual observer, as an entrance to the 
park is needed to see all that has been done. 

A very tasty and artistic bridge has been constructed, 
together with the planting of evergreens, shrubs, and trees ; 
also some hundreds of ferns have been transplanted and 
rockeries built. The roads have been recoated and the 
grounds cleaned up. 

It was decided to construct on the Broadvva}' side of the 
park a stone wall, together with an entrance, which has 
improved the surroundings very materially. This work was 
entrusted to Mr. George E. Chesley, and has been constructed 
in a workmanlike manner. Fully one half of the entire 
length of the line on Broadway has been built. 

Trees will be planted in the spring, and the improvements 
will go forward in accordance \\ith the appropriations which 
will be made for the work. 

The commissioners regret that the petition for a street on 
the north side of the park has been dismissed, for it will be a 
detriment to the park to have adjoining lots which cannot be 
controlled. 

PEXACOOK PARK. 

Penacook Park has been under the same management as in 
prcA'ious years. The appropriation has not been entirely 
spent, the grounds have been kept in a fair condition, and 
have been used to some extent. 

PARKS AND COiMMONS. 

The commissioners asked fur a special appropriation to 
be made at the beginning of the year, and the amount of 
$550 was appropriated for parks and commons. This was a 
new feature, and the idea was that certain localities in our 
city, which were lying idle, could be made attractive, thus 
extending our park system throughout the city where oppor- 
tunity aflbrded. A special committee appointed to expend 
the money took the triangle on North State street, just south 
of the pumping station, and began operations late in the 
summer. The ground was stripped of loam and graded with 



IT H Lie PAKKS. 317 

over seven lumdred loads of tilling-, putting the loam back 
upon same; the whole work behig carried on in conformity 
with a plan submitted by Mr. James H. Bowditch, of Boston. 

The whole amount of the appropriation has been expended 
upon this, and there will be needed some more money to 
properh' plant the grounds with shrubs. This the commis- 
sioners feel will prove a very attractive feature to our city, 
and after the first cost of developing, care can be maintained 
with very little expense; and it is hoped that its beauty and 
utility will demonstrate to our citizens the advisability of 
fixing up other plats from year to year. 

It has been ii>timated that certain pieces of land will be 
donated to the city upon the acceptance and improvement of 
the same for park purposes. 

The commissioners are continually reminded that there 
is a great lack of some place in the centre of the city where 
seats can be placed, and welcome given to strangers who 
may be tarrying in our city for a few hours. The piece of 
ground in the rear of the state house has been suggested as a 
very desirable place for such a purpose ; and if arrangements 
could be made with the state for the use of same, the citj- 
could develop and care for it, thus, at small expense, carry- 
ing out a felt demand. 

A city, in developing a park system, is doing somethino- 
which will last, and from year to ^■ear grows better and more 
attractive. It is not so with much of the work done in other 
departments, for so much deteriorates from year to year; but 
as years go by, the park will be ever increasing in value and 
a gratification to the succeeding generations. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF COMMISSIONERS. 



To tJie Mouorablc Board of flavor and Alder/nei/ : 

Your commissioners of cemeteries beg leave to submit the 
following report : 

The work of last year has been carried on in mucli the 
same manner as in previous years. A large amount of grad- 
ing has been done in Blossom Hill Cemetery. The gravel 
hill which has marred the beauty of our beautiful cemetery 
so long has been mostly removed. Not liaving sufficient 
funds at our command, we could not finish the work of its 
removal, but hope to complete it the coming year. 

We have prepared no block of new lots during this year, a 
large one having been graded and prepared last year ; but we 
shall be obliged to arrange another block during the coming 
year as a large amount have been taken during the year just 
ended. 

The occupants of this ''City of the Dead" are increasing 
rapidly. Our superintendent reports to us that the number 
of burials are but a little less than two hundred a year. Prep- 
aration must be made each year for a similar increase. 

We feel it our duty to call your attention once more to the 
necessity of a chapel at Blossom Hill Cemetery. We need a 
granite structure; one that will do honor to our beautiful 
cemetery, and be the pride of our city. 

We have endeavored to be as economical as possible, and 
shall expend yvhatever you may be pleased to appropriate for 
cemeteries in a manner that will warrant the closest inspec- 
tion. 

21 



322 CITY OF CONCORD. 

There being no grading required at tlie Old North Ceme- 
tery, our work there has been mostly in repairing lots and 
beautifying grounds. 

Whateyer your appropriation may be, we shall endeavor to 
make it go as far as possible, yet it seems to us that it should 
be increased from last year. 

We cannot think for a moment that any good respectable 
citizen ever thinks that anything is too good for the dead, or 
feels that taxation is burdensome, owing to too large an appro- 
priation for this department. 

Respectfully submitted,

Apparatus and Force. 

The apparatus and force of the department is as follows : 

Precinct, located at the Central fire station, one first-class 
Amoskeag engine, ''Eagle," with modern hose wagon, 
attached to Eagle Steam Fire Engine company (13 men) ; one 
second-class Amoskeag engine, "Kearsarge," and modern hose 
wagon, attached to the Kearsarge Steam Fire Engine company 
(13 men) ; one second-class Amoskeag engine, " Governor 
Hill," relief steamer, in charge of an engineer and fireman; 
one double 60-gallon tank Hollowav chemical engine in 
charge of two permanent n.ien ; one ladder truck, " Citv of 
Concord," attached to hook and ladder company (21 men). 
There are ten horses owned by the city kept at this station. 
The precinct companies have swing harnesses upoji all appa- 
ratus except steamers. There are six permanent men located 
at the Central station and one permanent man at each hose 
house within the precinct. 

The Alert Hose company (11 men), located on Washing- 
ton street, has a modern hose wagon with permanent man 
and horse.

fourth-class Silsby, with hose wagon. 

The Cataract company (30 men), at West Concord, has a

While the net loss by fire has been far in excess of that for 
the preceding year the city can be regarded in no other light 
than yery fortunate, as the loss outside of that suffered by the 
destruction of the Prescott Piano Factory has been yerv small. 

The apparatus is in good condition. During the year the 
hose wagons "Alert" and "Good Will" haye been thor- 
oughly repaired, retouchetl, and yarnished. 

One new hose wagon has been purchased and placed in 
service at Penacook. Two horses, one three-way Deluge 
set, and four hose jackets haye also been pmxhased. 

One hoi^se has become incapacitated through age to prop- 
erly perform the arduous duties sometimes demanded of a 
fire department horse. This horse has run with the depart- 
ment a great many years, and has been an unusually intelli- 
gent and faithful animal. I respectfully recommend that it 
be loaned 01; given to the highway department, which would 
insure good care and light vyork for the remainder of life. 

The department is destitute of service hats, and I respect- 
fully recommend the purchase of five dozen aluminum hats. 
Also the purchase of one thousand feet of fabric hose, and 
one pair of horses.

338 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The fire-alarm telegraph system is in good condition. All 
of the outside boxes have been rewired. All of the fire sta- 
tions within the precinct have been rewired. All of the 
hard drawn copper main line has been i^emoA-ed and iron 
wire substituted. One mechanical tapper and thirteen direct 
action tappers have been added to the system and the main 
line has been extended two miles. 

The direct action tappers are owned by the members of 
the department, the city wiring to, and maintaining, them. 
This work was expensive, but it was necessary and has im- 
pi^oved the service. It can therefore be regarded as money 
well expended. 

As predicted in the last report, the extension call-bell sys- 
tem has been discarded and the main line removed. Prior to 
December, the gravity battery had been increased from 183 
cells to 20S cells, when it was displaced by the storage sys- 
tem. There are now 190 storage cells, 95 being in sei'vice 
on alternate da3'S. 

There are large areas in the city unprotected by fire-alarm 
boxes, and I respectfully recommend that three boxes, at least, 
be added to the system during the coming year. 

A storage battery plant and appurtenances has been pur- 
chased. By contracting for this plant at so early a date a 
saving of four hundred and twenty-five dollars was effected. 

The thanks of the community are due to the fire depart- 
ment committee for being open to conviction, for so promptly 
investigating the merits of the storage system, and to the city 
government, for so promptly adopting and carrying out their 
recommendations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. C. GREEN, 

Chief Engineer.

HISTORY COMMISSION. 



In answer to the popular demand that a history of Concord 
be written, wliich should comprise not only the period cov- 
ered b}- Bouton 's excellent history, which closes with 1S53, 
but also the events and progress made since that time, the 
city government appointed a commission to superintend the 
execution of this public work. It is now nearly half a cen- 
turv since any attempt has been made to preserve in perma- 
nent form and put in readable shape the events which consti- 
tute the history of the capital city of New Hampshire. Even 
Bouton 's history, which deals only with Concord as a town, 
is not in general circulation and is now a rare volume, read- 
ih' commanding from $10 to $15 per copv- Other towns 
and cities of the state, with commendable public spirit, have 
had prepared their histories, and the capital citv, rich as it is 
in material, should not be behind hand in carrying to comple- 
tion its present worthy undertaking. 

The history commission has given to the consideration of 
this subject much time and thought, has heard with patience 
all suggestions, and has sought information from all quarters. 
In the preparation of the history, the commission desired to 
avail itself of the services of all those wdio are qualified for this 
work, and, in the division of the history, for the history is to 
be comprised in one volume, it has been thought best to devote 
from one third to one half of the book to a narrative or out- 
line history of Concord and the remainder of the volume to 
special topics, in which those events and chai-acteristics of the 
city deserving special attention could be amplified more than 
in an ordinary narrative. In doing this, it has followed in 
part the plan of that most excellent work, the Memorial 
History of Boston. 



346 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The commission has had in mind constantly, in the prepa- 
ration of this work, the question of expense and it hopes to 
have prepared and pubHshed a work which will ultimately 
pay for itself. Several writers to whom special topics have 
been assigned will contribute their services. A good part 
of the history is already nearing the point of completion. 
Some parts are already done. There is vet some preliminary 
work to be completed before the commission issues its pro- 
spectus and invites subscriptions. The interest of the citizens 
in this work is fully shown by the requests already made by 
citizens for opportunity to subscribe for the w'ork. The com- 
mission has every reason to believe that the demand for the 
historv will be sufficient to pay for its writing, compilation, and 
publication. 

JAAIES O. LYFORD, 

Secretary. 



AUDITOR'S REPORT. 



To the City Council : 

The city auditor is required by the ordinance creating Inis 
office to prepare for publication the annual report of the city, 
and to have it ready for distribution on or before March i, 
following the close of the financial year. It has been the 
practice for a number of years to keep open the treasurer's 
books after the first of January, that all sums due to the city 
for the preceding year mav be collected and that all out- 
^ standing claims may be settled. This practice has been fol- 
lowed for the vear 1896, and the books were not closed until 
the latter part of Januar}', 1S97. This leaves but a brief 
time in which to compile and print the report. It has been 
impossible for the auditor to hold any part of the report for 
comparison and verification with any other part and have the 
published report ready for distribution at the time specified in 
the ordinance. Unless the time for the distribution of the 
report is fixed at a later date, it would be advisable hereafter 
to close the books at an earlier date in Januarv, and report the 
claims unpaid as outstanding. 

In accordance with the spirit of the auditor ordinance and 
by direction of the committee on finance, the several de- 
partments of the city have been required to present their bills 
to the auditor for approval, and the claimants have been re- 
quired to present the orders received therefor to the city treas- 
urer for payment. Prior to the passage of this ordinance, it 
was the custom for the treasurers of the several departments, 
or their executive officers, to draw the money in bulk and dis- 
burse it, returning receipted bills and pay-rolls as vouchers 
for such payments. Except in case, of a few of the suburban 
highway districts, the present system of having all payments 
made by the city treasurer is without serious inconvenience to 
anyone, and is in accord with the methods in vogue in other 
municipalities. 



348 CITY OF CONXORD. 

The auditor is required to prepare estimates for appropria- 
tions for each financial year, and to submit the same to the 
committee on finance. In calling for these estimates, the 
several departments have been requested to furnish the esti- 
mates in detail instead of asking for a lump sum for the use 
of the department. It is suggested that the appropriations in 
like manner be made in detail. If this course is followed, 
appropriations made for one purpose cannot be used for 
another. The city government is then brought into closer 
touch with the departments in regard to their expenditures, 
and, in the case of purchases unprovided for at the beginning 
of tlie fiscal year, the department will be obliged to come to 
the city council to obtain a specific appropriation. If appro- 
priations are made in detail, there is not that inducement to, 
make unnecessary purchases that arises where an appropria- 
tion is for a round sum, to be expended at the discretion of 
the department. 

Some of the departments keep an itemized account ot their 
expenditures, and know the condition of their appropriations 
at all times in the year. Others have no knowledge of the 
standing of their appropriations until they are notified by 
the auditor that the appropriation is exhausted. It is only 
by keeping track of its appropriations that a department is 
able to tell whether the appropriations originally granted by 
the city government will be exceeded before the close of the 
fiscal year. 

I have the honor to submit herewith a final report of the 
accounts of Albert I. Foster, tax collector, for the years 1S93, 
1S94, and 1895, showing the amount of deficit for each year, 
the amount due from the bondsmen in accordance with the 
settlement authorized by the city council, the loss to the city, 
and the collections made of the uncollected taxes by George 
A. Foster, who was elected tax collector for the purpose of 
completing the collections of these years.
