third annual report, embracing tiie financial year from March 
31, 1902, to March 31, 1903. The most important change 
of policy during the year has been the separation of the 
offices of superintendent of schools and financial agent. In 
accordance with suggestions presented in our last annual 
report the board voted, in June last, to make certain amend- 
ments in the rules and regulations whereby this change 
might be brought about. It had constantly become obvious 
to the board that the rapid increase in buildings, and their 
size and value, necessitated a closer supervision than had 
been the case heretofore. Moreover the increase in the 
number of scholars and the diversity of their studies together 
with the changes in methods of better education seem to 
require all of the time of the superintendent of schools, 
without leaving the necessary opportunity for him to exercise 
supervision of the buildings. The board, therefore, elected 
Mr. Joseph T. Walker to the office of financial agent at a 
salary of $500, and he immediately entered upon his duties. 
The condition of many of the buildings required prompt and 
diligent attention. The nature of the financial agent's work 
may be seen by reference to the appended report :

SCHOOL REPORT. 89 

This work was under the constant supervision of Mr. 
Walker from beginning to end, having been formally author- 
ized by the Committee on Buildings and Repairs. In 
addition to superintending building and repairs the financial 
agent was suddenly called upon to deal with the fuel situ- 
ation. The ^•alue of Mr. Walker's services were at once 
shown in this direction, for they were of inestimable benefit 
in that trying situation caused by the fuel famine. The 
experience of the past year has demonstrated beyond ques- 
tion the absolute necessity of maintaining the permanency 
of this office. Growing as our schools are, together with the 
rapid increase of buildings, it becomes the part of economy to 
see that they are diligently looked after and kept in the best 
possible condition, otherwise defects and injuries will occur, 
which in a short time might amount to a considerable sum to 
remedy. 

At the opening of the fall term a change in the principal- 
ship of the High school took place. After a faithful service 
of twenty-one years, the longest in the history of the district, 
Mr. Kent resigned his position, and Frederick W. Doring, 
principal of the Woonsocket High school, was elected to the 
vacancy. Mr. Doring has had long experience in high school 
principalship, and is regarded as among the leading educators 
of New England. 

At the beginning of the fall term the New Rumford build- 
ing was open for occuj^ancy, and the wisdom of the Building 
Committee in providing for an eight room building was at once 
manifest. As in other sections of Concord, so in that section 
the increase of the number of scholars became very marked, 
and the rooms were all needed for the accommodation of 
pupils. The school is under the principalship of Miss Luella 
A. Dicker man. 

With the completion of the New Rumford the bonded debt 
of Union School district has been increased to $59,000.00 — 
$31^,000 for the New Rumford and $34,000 for the Dewey. 

The increase of pupils in the High school, to which the 
board called attention last year, has in no wise decreased. 



90 CITY OP CONCORD. 

The accommodations in the High school have not been for 
many years sufficient for the pupils of Union School district, 
and with the increase from outside the district the situation 
has become a troublesome one. The situation would not be 
relieved at all permanently even if pupils from outside the 
district were denied the privileges of the school. The neces- 
sity for an enlarged building would be apparent even then. 
In accordance with a vote of the district, passed April 18, 
1903, the board requested the former architects of the High 
school to prepare plans for its enlargement. Two plans have 
been drawn by Mr. Perley F. Gilbert, the successor of the 
former architects. One plan calls for the extension of the 
present building by wings added both east and west, the 
other plan calls for a separate building constructed wholly on 
the west end of the lot and connected with the present build- 
ing by a corridor or passage. Upon examining the plans 
the board is of the opinion that the latter scheme is 
much the preferable. The annex seems better adapted, 
not only because of its utility, but because of the unde- 
sirable nature of the east end of the lot owing to tlie exist- 
ence of a large reservoir; moreover, an addition of an 
annex would add eight suitable rooms besides a spacious base- 
ment. 

The question of High school accommodations is common 
throughout New England. In many towns where new High 
school buildings have been built within the last few years the 
increase in attendance has more than tested their capacity, 
and various devices have been created in order to provide 
for the over-crowding. Even in our own state we see 
this. In Portsmouth and Nashua the conditions are similar 
to those in Concord. In Manchester the conditions were 
similar, but they were met by the construction of a large and 
costly High school building. 

According to general estimates made by Mr. Gilbert the 
cost of adding wings would be from $34,000 to $37,000; the 
annex would cost from $51,000 to $55,000, while the raising 



SCHOOL REPORT. 91 

of the second story and superimposing another story would 
cost probably from $38,000 to $41,000. The board has not 
obtained working plans, consequently the estimates are merely 
approximate. 

Conceding that the present building is insufficient for the 
needs of the Union School district the question then becomes 
this, whether the district will vote to enlarge the present 
High school building. The Board of Education has long 
desired to install shorthand, typewriting and business book- 
keeping as part of the regular studies but has been unable to 
do so because of want of space. As matters are now it would 
be impracticable, if not impossible, to find place for another 
teacher. It is not fair to the district to make the High school 
primarily a college fitting institution. This is not the modern 
trend of education and the board does not desire to see Concord 
an exception in this respect. The question of admission of out- 
side pupils is purely a matter of business. This year the 
receipts from sixty-eight High school pupils will be $3,060, 
a sum which has greatly helped out the district in the recent 
coal famine. The outside pupils have necessitated an outlay 
only to the extent of the salary of one teacher, and the esti- 
mated expenditure of $300 for books and supplies. The 
estimated cost of pupils in the High school exclusive of inter- 
est on the plant is closely estimated at $45.83 each. Estimating 
the plant at $85,000 the cost would be about $58.00 each 
pupil. The tuition now charged for scholars from outside 
the district is $45.00. 

Another subject to which the board desires to call the atten- 
tion of the district is the desirability of building a new school- 
house on the Plains. The present building is wholly inade- 
quate for the rapidly increasing number of children, and there 
is no way to meet the increase except by enlargement, or by a 
new building. The former plan does not seem to be feasible, 
and would in any event be likely to prove unsatisfactory, 
while the latter plan, namely, a new building, would meet 
the present conditions and could be so arranged as to meet 



92 CITY OF CONCORD. 

the probable conditions for some years to come. A substan- 
tial wooden building might, we think, be erected for a sum 
not exceeding $8,000, the building to be a four-room structure 
with two rooms finished. 

The necessity of permanent improvements in the Walker 
school is urgent and the work should not be delayed. The 
increase in teachers' salaries is due not to changes in salaries 
but to a rule of the District whereby a teacher receives so 
much additional pay each year until the maximum of her 
grade is reached.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT. 



To the Board of Education of Union School District: 

The aim of a school report should be to enumerate the 
events of the year for the purpose of acquainting the Board 
of Education with the condition of the schools, and to act as 
a permanent record for the convenience of future generations. 
It should also serve as a means of advising the board of 
needful changes that the future may be even more prolific in 
satisfactory results than the past. At this point I beg leave 
to express my gratification at the union and accord of the 
educational forces of the district in providing and maintaining 
a system of education so well received by the general public. 
With an earnest and sincere desire to improve upon past 
accomplishments, I herewith respectfully submit my seven- 
teenth annual report, being the forty-third of its series. 

The Importance of the System. 

We are proud of the fact that the United States leads the 
world commercially. This has been brought about by many 
different agencies, the natural resources of the country play- 
ing an important part; but aside from everything else, the 
American idea as exemplified in her public school system, 
perfectly free and unsectarian, is no doubt the controlling 
factor in the equation of success. The democracy of the 
public school, where the children of all classes are brought 
to the common educational crib, will eventually determine 
the permanency of republican institutions. No other system 
can so successfully maintain the unification of the republic, 
" insure domestic tranquility, and secure the blessings of 
liberty to ourselves and our posterity." 



116 CITY OF CONCORD. 

School Work, 
grammar and primary schools. 

One more year of untiring effort has shown positive re- 
sults. Each successive year gives evidence of progress in 
all the different lines of legitimate school work. A school 
system must always be subject to change in order to adjust 
itself to ever-varying conditions — conditions which necessi- 
tate different' methods of teaching and that demand legisla- 
tion, which if allowed to lapse, would render the system 
inoperative. School work here deals largely with the so- 
called essentials. It is not my purpose to enter upon a dis- 
cussion of " fads." The popular conception of what eonsti- 
tutes a fad is so ill-defined that argument would meet with 
difficulty in finding a fair starting point. To show that our 
system cannot be fairly criticised for not dealing generously 
with the so-called essentials, I have prepared a table of close 
estimates showing the relative amounts of time given to each 
study in each grade. From this table, which may be found 
in the Appendix, one can learn that reading, writing, math- 
ematics, spelling, and language, consume about two thirds of 
the entire time. By those wdio are experts in dealing with 
educational requirements, this is considered too great a ratio 
and they believe it should be largely reduced to the advantage 
of nature study, geography and history. From an extended 
experience in experimental observation, I believe more good 
to be derived from the study of nature in the lower grades, 
in proportion to the time given it, than from any other one 
branch. The steady progress in mathematics, noted in my 
last report, has suffered no abatement. The gain, due 
primarily to the system in use, comes also from the more 
intelligent handling of the subject by the teachers. 

Improvement is also apparent in the way in which pupils 
express themselves in their written composition exercises. 
This consists, as regards matter — in brief, definite, compre- 
hensive statement; as regards form — in paragraphing, capi- 
talization, and punctuation. Much of this progress may be 
attributed to improved text-books, but more to the study 



SCHOOL REPORT. 117 

of standard selections which form the greater part of the 
reading courses. Heretofore, practice in EngHsh composi- 
tion has been ahnost wholly written work. The appai"ent 
inability of pupils to express their ideas freely in oral speech, 
or to relate, in proper form, anecdotes and stories which 
have been told them, led the superintendent to prepare a 
schedule of exercises to alternate with technical grammar in 
the eighth grade. This provides abundant practice in oral 
and written narration, reproduction, dictation, and story- 
telling in its many different forn}s. What the results will be 
cannot be determined until succeeding grades may have given 
us a chance for observation and comparison. It is safe to 
say, however, that the time is not misspent. 

All the other branches are being taught as skillfully as in 
previous years, and are subject to such changes as improved 
methods may suggest. 

It is proposed to hold exhibitions of school work in the 
various buildings at the end of next term. This used to be a 
popular feature of the school year, and it is confidently 
expected that the coming event will be in no wise inferior to 
those that have preceded it. 

The lower schools are in urgent need of geographical, his- 
torical, and physiological charts, and more supplementary 
reading matter to promote the better handling of these 
subjects. 

GRADING AND PROMOTION. 

The system of grading for a long time in use in the schools 
of the district, has its many disadvantages and bad features. 
It was originally designed and put into practice for pupils of 
average ability, leaving the very bright and the very dull 
pupils to pay the tribute of lost time to his " averageship." 
Many have sought and suggested plans for rectifying these 
faults, but as yet none has been found which can obviate 
every difficulty. The evils of the present system may be 
largely overcome in our schools by a ^^lan of semi-annual pro- 
motion for the first six grades, embodying the following good 
features : 



118 CITY OF CONCORD. 

I. Pupils can be admitted to school twice each year. 
This represents a saving of one half-year to the pupils who 
are not old enough to enter in September but are old enough 
in January. 

3. A bright pupil can complete the entire course in eight 
years, thereby saving one year of the present course. 

3. A dull pupil failing of promotion is allowed a chance 
of being kept back but nineteen weeks instead of one year, 
as under the present plan. 

4. During the first half of the seventh year, nearly all 
pupils have the advantage of one half-year's review in all the 
studies. 

5. At the end of the first nineteen weeks of the year, a 
teacher knows whether a pupil stands a chance of promotion 
at the end of the year, and under the present plan she is 
obliged to use her energy in a hopeless struggle. The pro- 
posed scheme would entirely obviate this difficulty. 

6. It would require the teacher to keep herself better 
prepared for general teaching. 

7. Pupils would receive the stimulus of promotion twice 
each year. 

The most serious objections are : 

1 . A larger number of classes for the lowest grade teachers. 

3. The unevenness of the classes when the change is made 
from one plan to the other. 

I have formulated this scheme, carefully weighed its advan- 
tages and its disadvantages, and have had frequent consulta- 
tions with the teachers regarding it. I am firmly convinced 
that a trial of the plan will prove true all that has been claimed 
for it. 

HIGH SCHOOL. 

The high school has undergone a radical change in the 
teaching corps since my last report. Mr. Kent, for the past 
twenty years master of the school, resigned at the end of the 
spring term. Miss Cogswell, assistant, also resigned to 
accept a position at Wellesley College. The building up of 



SCHOOL REPORT. 119 

the standard of the school belongs in a great degree to these 
excellent instructors, and their worth is generally acknowl- 
edged and appreciated. The other members of the teaching 
corps were retained. 

The board elected Mr. Frederick William Doring, of 
Woonsocket, R.I.,as master, and Mr. Eben Fenimore Phillips, 
of South Dennis, Mass., as sub-master. Both of these gen- 
tlemen are earnest workers, and under their regime we hope 
the school will increase in popularity and broaden its field 
of usefulness. 

A lunch counter was started in the basement during the 
winter term. This feature, long delayed, is in charge of Mr. 
Fred Emerton, and ever since its inauguration has proved Its 
usefulness bevond measure. 

The election of a sub-master was another step toward 
departmental teaching. Two teachers now devote their 
entire time to the teaching of English. The study of history 
has been extended to four years, but needs more adequate 
equipment. The school library also needs enlarging. Ex- 
aminations have been instituted at irregular intervals in place 
of the former method. The principal has this to say in 
regard to the crowded condition of the school : 

"The hall has been divided temporarily by curtains into 
three rooms, and it is necessary to keep the laboratories in 
almost constant use for general recitations, to the great incon- 
venience of the classes in the sciences. There is every indi- 
cation of a still larger attendance, and a continuance of the 
present inadequate accommodations would seriously hamper 
the future progi^ess of the school. 

" To say nothing of the increased numbers, I would 
emphasize the fact that several improvements would have to 
be made to establish normal conditions with our present 
attendance. The biological laboratory is wholly inadequate. 
There are also needed a science lecture room and a properly 
lighted room for drawing, while to confine the laboratories to 
their legitimate object and to use the hall only for assembling 
the school, would require three additional rooms. 



120 CITY OF CONCORD. 

"The foregoing is a conservative estimate of what would 
be necessar}- to properly carry on the work of the school in 
its present scope. I earnestly hope, however, that the Con- 
cord High school may very soon be able to offer to its 
students a commercial course of the highest grade. The 
advantages are too obvious to require extended comment. 
With expert instruction and a proper equipment, it will give 
the opportunity to combine with a broad general education a 
special training of immediate value in practical life. Such a 
course is of itself a justification of the demand for ampler 
accommodations, ensuring as it will a broader field of useful- 
ness for the school." 

Military Drill. 

In manv particulars this branch has had the most success- 
ful year of its history. Competent judges at the annual com- 
petitive drill pronounced tiie exhibition in "The School of a 
Soldier " and the "Manual of Arms" the finest ever pre- 
sented in this city. There is now a battalion of two uniformed 
companies and a small un-uniformed company, and we are 
gratified that their general military knowledge and drill 
work show a gradual development. The discipline has been 
meritorious and the arms and accoutrements are in good 
condition. 

It is interesting to note that Clinton Thompson, a captain, 
has entered the Naval Academy at Annapolis, and Clark P. 
Chandler, at present a sergeant of one of the cadet companies, 
recently received an appointment to the Military Academy at 
West Point. 

Alilitary drill for the girls was wisely discontinued and 
calisthenics substituted in its stead. The instruction of both 
the boys and girls has been efficient and complimentary to 
Major C. L. Mason, to whose zeal and skill the success is 
mainly due. 

Attendance. 

The conditions governing school attendance have not 
changed largely since one year ago. There is a material in- 
crease each vear from which it mav be inferred that the citv 



SCHOOL EEPORT. 121 

slowly gains in population and that the schools still retain the 
confidence of the general public. The north end schools have 
been relieved b}' forcing pupils toward the south. If there 
were suitable accon^modations at the Union street building it 
could be used to advantage. All available space at the Kim- 
ball school is utilized and pupils belonging here by right are 
forced to go to the Chandler and Rumford buildings in con- 
sequence of relieving the pressure from the north. The Plains 
school has been larger than ever before and the number of 
grades and more numerous classes make the conditions here 
the most unsatisfactor}' in the district. A new four-room 
building is sadly needed in this growing part of the citv. 
The teacher and the pupils are earnest workers and deserve 
better accommodations. The new Rumford building was 
completed in time for the opening of the fall term. Before 
being occupied it was thrown open for the inspection of the 
public and it was generally commended as being commodious, 
well-constructed, and satisfactory in about every wav. It 
certainly compares favorably with any other building of its 
kind in the state and is a credit to the district and the com- 
mittee who built it. Eight rooms were occupied from the 
very beginning, and but one regular room was opened at the 
Chandler building. This arrangement was made in the spirit 
of economy. The Eastman school has gained about thirtv 
pupils in the last year. Next year bids fair to see this increase 
duplicated, thus making the conditions such as to necessitate 
the finishing of the other room. 

The attendance is kept more uniform b}' the strict enforce- 
ment of the truancy laws. Each succeeding vear shows that 
the policing of the district for truants and absentees as pur- 
sued by Mr. Johnson is effective ajid wholesome. Tabulated 
statistics may be found in the Appendix. 

Buildings. 

Few cities of its size have so many desirable school build- 
ings as Concord. They are commodious, well heated, and 
for the most part well ventilated. The building equipment 
of a school system is an important part of its stock in trade. 



122 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The effect of a well-ordered building upon the conduct of the 
pupils and the general morale of school work can be appre- 
ciated fully b}' those who observe the every-day working of a 
school system. During the past 3'ear the care of the build- 
ings has been more closely supervised than ever before, with 
the result that the loss to the city by a lack of proper repairs 
has been arrested, and if this policy is continued as it ought 
to be it will insure the district against serious depreciation of 
the value of the plant. 

The use of soft coal has badly injured the interior of some 
of the buildings, a necessary evil wdiich we hope may not 
recur. 

Nothing has been done this year in the way of decorating 
schoolrooms. The rules and regulations forbid pupils giving 
anything toward this worthy object but I believe an exception 
should be made in its favor. 

Drawing. 

We are fortunate in having liad no changes in instructors 
or courses since last year. The aim has been to raise the 
standaixl of the work in quality. In the best schools art and 
manual training are closely correlated, it being evident that 
greater value is gained through designing and constructing 
than through designing alone. Without the construction both 
the motive and the incentive for expressing ideas are taken 
away. In our schools there is a serious break in hand-training 
between the kindergarten and the seventh grade. This can 
be obviated by taking time from the regular studies and 
devoting it to the diflerent forms of this work. A beginning 
has been made in the fifth and sixth grades for the boys udiile 
the girls are at the sewing school, by giving them good drill 
in the study of form, good proportion, fine space relations 
and harmony of color through basket making. The drawing 
in the high school is not on a good basis but proposed changes 
for next year's course suggest better conditions. The studio 
classes have increased to fifty students, work being carried on 
to much better advantasce in the Chandler building:. The 



SCHOOL REPORT. 123 

instructor joins with me in deploring the fact that nothing has 
been clone toward schoolroom decoration. I trust I may be 
pardoned for renewing my appeal for aid in this meritorious 
work through voluntary contributions by the pupils. 

Music. 

This department has been conducted with the efficiency 
which has characterized it before. A decided effort has been 
made to strengthen individual work through written tests and 
individual singing before the entire school. The high school 
chorus, numbering about one hundred and twenty voices, pre- 
pared and gave to the public on February 26 "The Building 
of the Ship " by Lahee. Like the concert of last year it was 
a pronounced success and netted a small sum to add to the 
treasury fund. 

The usual effective work has been done with the pupil 
teachers of the training school. A course was arranged for 
the kindergarten normal classes with special reference to 
voice training, the study of the child voice, children's songs, 
and melody writing for children's voices. 

Training School. 

The sphere of usefulness of the training school is as wide 
as heretofore. Its fame has forced itself beyond the city's 
limits. The standard gains with the advancing years and 
the institution still remains a forceful element in our system 
of education. 

The primary and grammar classes of pupil teachers are 
much larger than they have been for the past few years. The 
training has been conducted upon nearly the same lines as 
before and the instruction has shown that power w'hich a suc- 
cessful experience of many years and a true devotion to duty 
alone can give. 

The kindergarten normal classes are well organized and 
thoroughly devoted to their work. The corps of lecturers has 
been stronger this year than last. The first class of eleven 



124 CITY OF CONCORD. 

young ladies graduates next June. Their attention to work 
and their theoretical and unusual practical training should 
make them strong teachers from the start. 

Some people, who have failed to acquaint themseh'es with 
the true conditions, think that school room which ought to be 
devoted to the accommodation of the pupils is now utilized 
by the training teachers. This is not so. The full amount 
of floor space fit for pupils' sittings is utilized bv them and 
HO more room could be had if there were no training classes. 
The kindergarten normal classes are not only a distinct edu- 
cational acquisition to the district but also a financial invest- 
ment. 

Supervision. 

The supervision during the last vear has been closer than 
ever before. At best the amount of time is limited enough 
v/hen we consider that there are sixty-two regular teachers, 
and eight special teachers representing music, drawing, wood 
and iron working, sewing, cooking and military drill. 

Divorcing the financial agency from the superintendency 
gave the superintendent more time and it has been employed 
according to his best judgment in frequent teachers' meetings 
and additional visits to the schools. It is expected that the 
coming year will see the siq^erintendent's field of usefulness 
still further widened by lectures and special meetings designed 
to promote the general educational culture of the teaching 
corps. 

Manual Training. 

wood and iron work. 

The enrollment of pupils for this department is about the 
same as for last year. The high school sends two large and 
enthusiastic classes. Tiie interest does not flag and the exe- 
cution of the work is improving. This is noticeable in iron- 
work, wood-carving, and in the introduction of a new branch, 
pyrography. 



SCHOOL REPORT. 125 

At the end of the summer term Mr. Stewart, the efficient 
assistant, resigned to accept a more lucrative position else- 
where. Mr. George L. Fogg was elected to fill the position, 
which he retained until the end of the fall term when he 
resigned on account of ill health. Mr. Edward A. Gordon 
is now serving as assistant with abillt}'. Nine pupils are 
making engines of various sizes, and it is proposed to give 
some instruction in soft metal molding and casting to a limited 
number. Something may be done also in Venetian iron- 
work, and I think it wise to take some steps toward introduc- 
ing forging, for the educational value of this work is as great 
as any other subject being taught here. A room with a 
cement floor would be needed. I would also suggest that a 
plan of correlating this work with elementary physics be 
considered and, if found practicable, adopted. I still have a 
firm faith in the efficacy of all forms of manual training, and 
believe our effi^rts should be bent in making this work strong 
in ever}^ department. 

Sewing. 

The number of pupils enrolled in sewing at the present 
time is four hundred forty. The large number taking 
sewing led to a change of quarters in the fall term. The 
Chandler building offered better facilities for carrying on the 
work and one of the unused rooms was called into requisi- 
tion. 

It is to be deplored that the high school classes have 
become so small that only nine pupils are now enrolled. 
This affects seriously the advanced work which added so 
much to the annual exhibition of last June. Another year 
will bring the new departure of garment cutting and it is 
hoped that sufficient time will be allowed to insure its 
success. 

It is gratif\'ing to note the unusual absence of friction in 
this department, and I am pleased to report excellent work. 



126, CITY OF CONCORD. 

Cookery. 

During the fall term Miss Harriet C. Gilmore, for a num- 
ber of years teacher of cookery and domestic science, resigned 
on account of ill health. 

Her place was filled by the election of Miss Harriet D. 
Gerould. The work is now conducted upon the laboratory 
plan and is largely individual. This change called for more 
gas burners and other material and the method has infused 
new life into the pupils, making the future standard of house- 
keeping in Concord look much brighter. We are certainly 
to be congratulated that Concord is the only city of the state 
that now supports a department of cookery, but if it is to 
assume that importance which is certainly its due, better 
conveniences should be furnished. The room in use is so 
inadequate both in size and equipment as to make conditions 
for sanitary teaching inconsistent with the surroundings. If 
an annex to the high school should be built, we should make 
provision for a new room which should afford all the conven- 
iences necessary for the proper handling of this work. The 
school is in excellent condition, the teacher earnest and com- 
petent and the pupils interested to an unusual degree. 

Co^XLUSION. 

The schools have maintained the reasonable discipline and 
the scholastic standard of former years. This has not been done 
without earnest work, careful planning and no little anxiety 
on the part of all connected with the details of its execution.

170 CITY OF CONCORD. 

All contracts shall be awarded to the lowest responsible

In awarding contracts for labor and material to be furnished

ing committee for the Dewey school, as printed in the annual 
report, having been adopted, he moved that the committee be 
discharged and it was so voted.

tendered to the Dewey School Building Committee for the 
able and efficient manner in which that committee had dis-

and moved its adoption : 

Whereas, at the annual meeting of this district, holden on 
March 38, 1901, at which it was voted to appropriate the 
sum of thirty thousand dollars ($30,000) for erecting and 
furnishing the Rumford school building, one fifth part or six 
thousand dollars ($6,000) thereof to be raised bv taxation 
upon the polls and estates within the district when the money 
was raised for the regular appropriation for 1902, 



SCHOOL EEPORT. 



171 



Voted, that as said amount of six thousand dollars 
($6,000) has not yet been assessed, and in view of the amount 
which must be raised to liquidate the maturing bonds of the 
district and the amount necessary for the use of the district 
for the current year, it is the sense of this meeting that the 
resolution directing the assessment upon the polls and estates 
of said sum of six thousand dollars ($6,000) for the year 
1902 should be rescinded, and that said amount be included 
in the bonded indebtedness of the district with the balance of 
the authorized cost of said Rumford building, and to secure 
this result it is hereby recommended and directed that the 
Board of Education call, as soon as practicable, a special 
meeting of the district to take action with reference to the 
rescinding of said resolution and authorizing the temporary 
loan of said amount, and ultimately borrowing the same vipon 
the credit of the district by the issue of the bonds of the dis- 
trict in accordance with the provisions of chapter 197 or 
chapter 361 of the Laws of 18S9. 

A vote was taken after some discussion and the resolution 
was declared adopted. 

The ballot having been closed at eight o'clock, as voted, 
the moderator appointed George A. Foster and Arthur F. 
Sturtevant to sort and count the votes, and reported as fol-

SCHOOL REPORT. 175 

Concord, N. H., April iS, 1902. 

Agreeabl}' to the foregoing warrant a meeting of the legal 
voters in Union School district was held at the citv hall 
this eighteenth day of April, 1902, at seven o'clock in the 
evening. 

The meeting was called to order by Louis C. Merrill, clerk 
of the district, who stated that in absence of the moderator 
it would be necessary to choose a moderator fro tempore. 

Mr. James O. L^ford moved that James M. Killeen serve 
as moderator pro tempore . 

Motion seconded, a vote taken, and Mr. James M. Killeen 
was elected unanimously ; viva voce vote, no ballot being 
taken. 

The oath of office was administered to. the moderator /re 
tempore by Harry G. Sargent, justice of the peace. 

The moderator read the warrant for the meeting. 

Article i. Mr. James O. Lyford offered the following 
resolution and moved its adoption : 

Whereas, at a meeting of the Union School district, held 
March 28, 1901, it was voted that the sum of thirty thousand 
dollars be appropriated for a new schoolhouse, to be erected 
on the Rumford school lot, and that one fifth part of said 
thirty thousand dollars, amounting to six thousand dollars, be 
raised b}' taxation upon the polls and estates for the year 
1902, and 

Whereas, it appears that the present funded indebtedness 
of the city is such that the burdens of taxation will be more 
equalized if said sum of six thousand dollars is raised at some 
later period, 

Now therefore. Resolved., That so much of the aforesaid 
resolution of March 2S, 1901, as requires said sum of six 
thousand dollars to be raised in 1902 is hereby rescinded, and 
it is voted that said sum of six thousand dollars be funded at

SCHOOL REPORT, 187 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OF 
DISTRICT NO. 20, FOR THE YEAR ENDING 
MARCH 31, 1903. 



During the past year the schools have maintained a high 
standard, and while ideal conditions have not been reached 
there has been a continuous growth in that direction. Harmo- 
nious relations exist between all the teachers, the superintendent 
and the school board, and the energy of all has been con- 
served for the one great purposeful w^hole, the maintaining of 
a school as perfect as can be had under the conditions which 
the district provides, where knowledge shall be imparted 
according to modern methods, the mind, soul and body of 
each pupil trained intelligently and harmoniously, and pure 
ideas and high ideals of manhood and womanhood implanted. 
The function of the public school is constantly growing 
broader; wider and constantly wider with our increasing 
civilization is its influence and power extending, and its facil- 
ities and equipment should keep pace with its opportunities ; 
manual training with its underlying principle of developing 
the whole child should be an important part of the school 
work, and your committee advise an appropriation for this 
purpose. We also urge the district to take immediate steps 
toward providing more school room, the number of pupils is 
constantly increasing and more room is an absolute necessity 
if the schools are to do the best work. During the past year 
much has been done to renovate and improve the condition 
of the school building, all the rooms and the basements have 
been kalsomined and the desks and tables refinished. In the 
last annual report the attention of the district was called to 
the unsanitary condition of the school building. Unsanitary 
conditions still prevail and will continue to do so till some 
system of ventilation is installed. The present system of 
heating is ill-constructed and insufficient, and until some 
changes are made it will be necessary to use stoves in some 



]88 CITY OF CONCORD. 

parts of the building. Believing it to be necessary that some 
competent person should supervise our schools, who shall be 
able to view the entire field, who shall study not one school 
but many, and who shall be able to unite the teachers as one 
body, we advise the continuance of the supervisory district 
relation, and commend the eflorts of the superintendent to 
bring the school up to a high standard. We recognize with 
appreciation the eftbrts of Mr. Merriam for the moral uplift 
of the school and the community, and we urge the citizens of 
District No. 20 to consider the importance of the school as a 
moral force in our community and to contribute generously 
of their time and influence for its support.

Superintendent's Report. 

To the Board of Ediicatioii : 

I herewith respectfully submit mv second annual report, 
which is the second in the series of reports of the superintendent 
of schools in District No. 30, Penacook. The conditions 
under which the superintendent has labored during the past 
year have been far more favorable than those existing previous 
to the time of the last annual report. 

Our present corps of teachers is working with a common 
feeling of perfect harmony and sincere good will for the best 
interest of the schools. This sentiment has to a certain 
extent found its way into the controlling impulses of the 
pupils and through them to the parents. This condition of 
pleasantness in the schools has made possible a far higher 
standard of work than could otherwise have been attained, 
yet it seems to me that there are some difficulties still remain- 
ing to impair the results of the school labors. Teachers and 
pupils must have behind them a united and sympathetic 



SCHOOL REPORT. i 189 

community. Whatever may be the individual opinions of the 
citizens of the district all should work together to obtain the 
greatest good for the pupils. The work of our public schools 
is far too important to admit for a moment tiie interference of 
the personal element. The will — whatever that may be — of 
the majority must be the law of the community and the guide 
of school official and should be cheerfully sanctioned by all. 
Not until this condition of harmony and true interest in the 
welfare of the schools exists can teachers obtain the best 
results from their pupils. 

In this report I shall endeavor to briefly set forth the 
changes and improvements which have taken place in the 
schools during the past year, their present condition, and 
some plans for their future welfare and improvement. I take 
this opportunity to thank the Board of Education for the 
interest and support which they have extended to me in my 
work. 

ATTENDANCE. 

In my last report I called the attention of the board to the 
need of some by-law of the district concerning the attend- 
ance of children between the ages of six and eight. Under 
the present regulations children cannot be compelled to 
attend school until they are eight years of age. Many, how- 
ever, do enter much younger, but their attendance is often very 
irregular and hence their progress is very unsatisfactory. A 
large number do not enter until the law obliges them to do so. 

The results are bad and are felt throughout the whole 
school system. Many of those entering at six years of age 
are absent so much that they fail to do a sufficient amount of 
work to insure promotions, hence spend two and sometimes 
three or more years in the first grade. Thus at the very start 
they lose interest in their work and become discouraged. 

Those who fail of promotion to the second grade and those 
who do not enter school until they are eight years old increase 
the average age so that in the first grade where it should be 
about six and one-half years it is as an actual fact about 
eight. 



190 CITY OF CONCORD. 

COUUSE OF STUDY. 

The purpose of a course of study is not to prescribe a cer- 
tain amount of work to be done in a definite time, but rather 
to be a guide to pupils and teacher and show the best correla- 
tion of subjects. To be sure it should also show^ the amount 
of time necessary for the accomplishment of a definite amount 
of work by classes of average intelligence. However, as the 
capacity of everv class for acquiring knowledge varies, no 
fixed allotment of time can be made. Our present course is 
so arranged and provided with supplementary lines of work 
that teachers can, to a lai'ge extent, use their own judgment 
in regard to the amount of work done by the different pupils. 

Until the fifth or sixth year of a child's school life reading 
should be its most important study. The skill the child 
acquires in this branch of school work forms the base of all 
future knowledge and culture. This fact has liad great influ- 
ence upon the changes made in the course in reading. To 
increase the child's vocabulary and his ability to pronounce 
vv'ords several of the best drill readers have been added and 
some drill in phonics given by each of the teachers of the 
lower grades. 

In the selection of books for supplementary reading, great 
care has been used to get only the best works of leading 
authors. The object is, of course, to form in the children 
a habit of reading the best literature and thereby securing 
for them a pleasant and efiicient method of acquiring broad 
culture. Although several new reading books have been 
purchased during the year, the schools have bv no means 
been furnished with an adequate amount of reading material, 
and in order to obtain the best results additions must be 
made from time to time. 

Another important feature of a good reading course is its 
correlation with other subjects. Many of the books have 
been chosen with the express intention of supplementing 
geography, history, and nature study. The farther this cor- 
relation of subjects can be extended the more efficient the' 
course. 



SCHOOL REPORT. 191 

The spiral swstem of teaching arithmetic has been intro- 
duced in the lower grades, and Book I of the Werner series 
of arithmetic is in use. The use of the other books of 
this series and the methods accompanying them should be 
extended to the higher grades as soon as possible. The Hall 
primer of arithmetic is used in the second grade. With a 
part of the grade the book has been a success ; with the 
other part it is giving some difficulty because the children 
have not been sufficiently prepared. This is not the fault of 
any previous instruction, but is due to the overcrowded and 
uncertain condition of the first grade. This trouble would 
soon be removed if the district would make the proper 
attendance regulations for children between six and eight 
years of age, and establish a kindergarten, which recommen- 
dations are discussed at length in another part of this report. 

The language course remains much the same as that of 
last year. The Mother Tongue, Book II, has been intro- 
duced in the sixth grade, and the Collar and Daniell's "•First 
Year in Latin," in the ninth. Frye's Advanced Geography 
has been introduced in the sixth grade. 

The whole course of study has been arranged with a 
certain definite end in view. It has seemed better to make 
gradual rather than sudden sweeping changes. There are 
two important reasons for this. In the first place any great 
change necessitates many new text-books, hence an additional 
expense which might be burdensome, while if the change 
takes place gradually the new and better books can replace 
the old worn out copies. Then again a radical change in a 
course of study causes a great deal of friction and readjust- 
ment, which with the slower process does not occur. 

In the choice of new books great care has been used to 
secure only the best, and such as have been used with suc- 
cess in other schools of high standard. Should the present 
plan be carried out, another year will find many more of the 
best text-books now^ published in use in our schools. 



192 CITY OF CONCORD. 

TEACHERS AND GRADING. 

The suggestions made in the last annual report in regard 
to the choice of new teachers has heen carefully followed. 
All our teachers have had careful training, or several years 
of successful experience. The results are already manifest 
in the quality and quantity of the work being done in the 
schools. If the present standard of our teaching force can 
be maintained — and public sentiment should not let it fall 
lower — the teachers will be able to do more efficient work 
than thev have in the past, the results will be more and more 
satisfactory, and a wider field of learning and culture will be 
opened to the pupils. The standard of any school cannot 
rise beyond the standard of its teachers. The weak, in- 
efficient teacher must give way to the stronger and better 
qualitied. That a teacher is unsuccessful in her school does 
not always show that she is incompetent, but simplv that she 
is undertaking work for which she is not prepared or well 
adapted. 

During the year there have been but few changes in the 
teaching force. At the beginning of the spring term Miss 
Lillian Stevens took up the work which had been carried on 
bv Miss Bessie Rolfe. At the beginning of the fall term 
Miss Katherine McLaughlin was placed in charge of the new 
room opened in the engine house. There have been many 
difficulties in organizing and conducting this school in a 
room built for other than school purposes, and so far away 
from the central plant. Miss McLaughlin seems to have 
met and conquered these difficulties as they presented them- 
selves. Miss Mildred Emery has taken Miss Bessie Kelley's 
place in the first grade. The other teachers who were in the 
schools last year are doing their usual faithful work, and 
citizens who visit their rooms may see satisfactory results. 

When it was found necessary to place one school in a room 
outside of the main building, some difficulty was experienced 
in the choice of the grades to be moved. After careful con- 
sideration the seventh and eie^hth grades, numbering in all 



SCHOOL REPORT. 198 

about twenty-five, were placed in the new room. This left 
the sixth and ninth grades in charge of Mr. Merriam. This 
arrangement, though the best that could be made, is not the 
most desirable, as it is always best to place the higher grades 
in charge of the principal. The first grade is, as usual, very 
large. In order to relieve somewhat the pressure in this 
room, some of the pupils who have been in the school at 
least one year were placed in Miss Stevens' room, where 
they are to continue their first grade work. Some of them, 
it is hoped, may be able to do the work of the second grade 
before the end of the year. 

The conditions which confront the district in the first grade 
room are really serious, and should be attended to at once. 
The register shows an enrollment of between seventy and 
eighty. The crowding together in one room of such a large 
number is a menace to their physical health and mental 
development. Their ages range from five to thirteen, and 
their needs vary nearly the same as their ages. It is un- 
reasonable to expect that a single teacher can do the work 
required. The condition should be relieved at once by the 
establishment of a kindergarten. The parents who have 
children in school have the right and should demand this 
much for the welfare of their children. Almost no modern 
school system can be found in which the kindergarten does 
not form an important part. It has stood the test of time 
and proven itself to be of great value. 

There is another need much felt in the schools by both 
teachers and pupils, viz., a special teacher in drawing. It is 
hoped by all concerned that some advance will be made in 
this direction during the coming year. The superintendent 
has made some investigations in regard to the cost of secur- 
ing a teacher, and finds the expense would not be great. 

Accommodations and Repairs. 

In the fall the large size of the sixth grade made it impossi- 
ble to use the school hallway, as was done last year. The 
Board of Education carefully considered the various places 

13 



194 CITY OF CONCORD. 

that might be available and found the ward-room the most 
suitable. Through the courtesy of the city government the 
room is now used for school purposes. 

Closets provided with running water have been placed on 
the second floor of the building and a portable partition 
built to enclose the schoolroom. This arrangement has fur- 
nished an excellent, well lighted, well ventilated, and well 
heated room. In case the district does not provide more rooms 
by building a new scho'olhouse this summer, the use of this 
extra room will be of great advantage to the schools another 
fall. It would be difficult to find a use to which a room ordi- 
narily so unused could be put wdiere a greater good would 
result to so large a number of people in such a good cause. 

Puring the summer vacation the walls and ceilings of the 
rooms and hallways of the school building received a 
thorough cleaning and whitening. The desks and seats in 
Mr. Merriam's and Mrs. Holden's rooms have been restained 
and the floors of all the rooms have been redressed. The 
building now presents a clean, wholesome appearance, which 
it is the pride of teachers and pupils alike to preserve. 

Mr. William Farrand, who has been janitor since the open- 
ing of the fall term, has done his share to keep the building 
in the condition in which it should be. Mr. Farrand, both 
as truant officer and janitor, has given the best satisfaction in 
the performance of his duties. 

This report would not be complete unless it contained 
some mention of the need of a new school building. This 
year the pressure was relieved somewhat by the use of the 
ward-room but still the seating capacity of the first grade 
room is taxed to its utmost. Instead of having fewer scholars 
another fall we may justly expect an increase of at least 
twenty-five and probably more. What shall be done with 
these pupils? Other room might be secured outside of the 
present school building. However it seems to me that this 
method of providing for the overflow will soon, if it has not 
already, reach the limit of economy. 



SCHOOL EEPORT. 195 

A new building of at least four rooms must l)e built in the 
near future, and until it is built the work in the schools can 
not be satisfactory. 

This need has been long felt and thoroughly discussed by 
the members of the district, and I think the majority realize 
its importance. It now remains for them to act. 

Co-operation. 

In conclusion allow me to Xjuote freely from an article 
which I have previously written. In the last annual report 
the object of our school system was briefly explained. Now 
it is well that a means should be suggested by which this 
object may be better attained. School officials, teachers, and 
pupils may do everything in their power to bring about the 
highest good and best results in the schools, yet their efforts 
will not meet with entire success unless they have the hearty 
sympathy and co-operation of the parents. The effort on the 
part of the teachers to increase the per cent, of attendance 
furnishes a good illustration of this fact. 

The best rules and regulations for the regularity and punc- 
tuality of attendance have failed again and again, simply 
from careless indifference on the part of the parents. Children 
are allowed to be late or remain away from school on the 
merest pretext. The result is injurious to the individual pupil 
and the school as a whole — to the individual, in that habits 
of irregularity and indifference are formed ; to the school, in 
that the regular work is interrupted by tardiness and com- 
pletely broken up by absence. 

But this is only a single case in which parents may lend 
support to the schools. Teachers labor day after day with 
untiring zeal and patience ; they mold and develop the mind 
and character of hundreds of pupils, yet it is seldom they 
receive a suggestion or a word of encouragement from parents 
or even a visit which would show parental interest. Parents 
too often think that the only time when it is necessary for 
them to show an interest in the work of the class-room is when 
thev can find fault. 



196 CITY OF CONCORD. 

There is no institution of modern civilization so important 
or so worthy- of attention and care as our system of public 
schools. Phenomenal in its development, unlimited in its 
capacity for good, it stands an institution on the work of 
which rest the possibilities and welfare of the greatest repub- 
lic and nation in the world. The broader the mental develop- 
ment and the stronger the character of the children who leave 
the public schools to become citizens, the more nearly has our 
educational system attained the object toward which it is 
striving. Then realizing its power over society in general the 
parents should place themselves in the true relation of friendly 
and kindly interest to the school, and place the school in its 
true relation of importance to the child. If in my work I 
can awaken in the citizens of District No. 20 a deeper sym- 
pathy for the welfare of the schools I shall feel that I have 
accomplished a great good.

SCHOOL REPORT. 203 

SCHOOL REPORT OF THE TOWN DISTRICT 
For the Ykar Ending jNIarcii, 1903. 



In presenting this, the seventeenth annual report of the town 
school district, we desire to say it has been our aim, as in 
past years, to employ the best teachers within our means, and 
make as few changes as possible. Generally speaking, the 
year has been prosperous, and our schools, for the most part, 
are in good working condition. We have encountered the 
usual drawbacks, among which the prevalence of whooping- 
cough has been prominent; this with other causes has made 
sad inroads upon the attendance in some of our schools. It 
was thought best to dispense with teachers of vocal music 
during the winter terms, that our funtls might be sufficient 
for the usual thirty weeks of schooling. 

Plains School. 

The summer term was taught by Miss Georgia A. Foster. 
Good discipline and thoroughness were in evidence at the 
close of the term. 

The fall term was taught by Miss Nellie Brown, of Andover, 
N. H. 

Miss Mabelle Steele was in charge of the winter term, and 
under her instruction good progress was made, although the 
attendance was quite irregular on account of sickness. 

V. 

Standisii School. 

Miss Lora Tarbell did good work during the first term. 
The second term was taught by Mrs. Smith, whose work 

was highly satisfactorv. 

A. 



204 CITY OF CONCORD. 

MILL^'II.LE School. • 

The primary department was taught b}- Miss Ethel Paige 
with t|ie best of results. 

The spring and fall terms of the higher grade were taught 
by Miss Ida M. Robins with good success. Miss Robins 
resigned at the close of the fall term and Miss Eva I. French, 
of Pembroke, was secured for the winter term. Miss French 
gave perfect satisfaction, which was shown bv the large num- 
ber of visitors present at the examination. 

A. 

Iron Works School. 

Taught by Miss Jennie Brown who had the hearty support 
of all concerned. This school which has been under her care 
for several years is one of the best. 

A. 

BURROUGH vSCHOOL. 

This school registered thirty-two names for the fall term 
and only a decrease of two for the winter term. 

The first two terms of the year were taught by Miss Han- 
nah M. Stanyan, a teacher of experience who has had charge 
of this school during several terms. 

Mr. Warren Abbott took charge of the school during the 
winter term. That much patient and earnest work has been 
done by both teachers was evinced at the closing exercises. 
The number of scholars here in so many grades of advance- 
ment makes the teachers' work necessarily difficult. 

S. 

Mountain School. 

This is one of our larger schools, twenty-five names appear- 
ing on the register, and was under the instruction of Miss 
Florence N. Adams, a teacher of faithfulness and ability, 
whose work was fullv appreciated, and was attended with 
good results. The closing exercises were attended by over 

forty of the parents and friends. 

V. 



SCHOOL REPORT. 205 



Virgin School. 



The three terms of the past year were taught by Miss Ida 
B. Sleeper, whose faithful service in the past has brought this 
school to its present excellent standing in scholarship. The 
closing exercises showed much interest by the number of 
parents present. 

V. 

Number Four School. 

The spring term was taught by Miss Georgiana Webster, 
of Kingston, N. H. The fall and winter terms by Miss Ruth 
W. Favor. The closing examinations indicated good progress 
in all lines of work. On account of sickness, the attendance 
became so reduced during the winter term that it was thouo-ht 
best to close the school at the end of five weeks. 



Little Pond School. 

The three terms of the year have been taught by three 
different teachers, as follows: Spring term, Mr. Walter 
Fletcher; fall term, Miss Georgiana Webster; winter term. 
Miss Ida ]M. Robins. All things considered these teachers 
have accomplished good results. On account of sickness and 
other causes, the rate of attendance was very low for the 
winter tei'm. 

S. 

TURTLETOWN SciIOOL. 

Miss Bessie E. Virgin has had charge of this school for 
the entire school year. 

Universal satisfaction was given to both parents and schol- 
ars. Good advancement was made in all branches taught. 

V. 



206 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Horse Hill School. 

Miss Carrie E. Foss, of Kingston, N. H., has had charge 
of tliis school during the past three years, with the exception 
of one term. Under her faithful management and good 
discipline, the school has come to rank among our best in 
point of scholarship.

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF COMMISSIONER OF HIGHWAYS. 



To the City Council: 

Gentlemen: — In accordance with the ordinance, I here- 
with submit the annual report of the highway department for 
the year ending December 31, 1902. 

The work of the highway department which must be taken 
fiom the appropriation for general maintenance is so exten- 
sive that it does not allow its use in any particular direction, 
only in patching and minor repairs. The demands for small 
repairs are so numerous that the department endeavors to lay 
out the work where it is most needed. Possibly many citizens 
feel that their street is neglected, but I think that if they will 
consider the large number of demands for small repairs they 
will understand the situation more thoroughly. 

In regard to shade trees, I would suggest that a separate 
appropriation be made for removing and trimming them, as 
the money expended in their care does not show in street 
repairs. On August 11, Concord was visited by a severe 
cyclone which did a large amount of damage to trees through- 
out the city, making quite an expense to the department. 
Since the law establishing the office of tree warden has been 
passed the calls from citizens for removing and trimming 
trees have increased considerably. The growth of the trees 
has also shut in many of the street lights so that another 
season a large amount of trimnnng will be necessary to 
improve the lighting service. 



HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. 209 

Considerable work has been done this year grading with 
stone chips from the stone-sheds. With a little work on them 
with the steam-roller they make a very good road for heavy 
travel at a small expense. 

In the spring the work of the new electric railway on Hall 
street was completed and the line broad gauged from Pleasant 
street south, and the streets were put back in good condition. 

The change last season in the method of collecting garbage 
has arranged itself quite satisfactorily, and I think residents 
have but little trouble in following the collections. The 
present method of cleaning improves the general appearance 
of the city very much. 

As fiir as the appropriations would admit, the usual amount 
of work was done on catch-basins and concrete walks and 
crossings. 

The appropriation for permanent work was cut down 
this year to $5,000 so that it was impossible to do much 
special work. Considerable of the macadam put in a few 
years ago needed resurfacing. South State street from 
Pleasant to Thompson, North State from Warren to School, 
North Alain from Pitman to Court, and Green from Pleasant 
to School, were picked up and rolled and are now in good 
condition. 

The only piece of new macadam put in was about 450 feet 
at St. Paul's School and 1,505.2 yards of concrete were laid 
at the same place. The school paid $582.23 of the concrete. 
A large amount of excavating was necessary vv^here the mac- 
adam was put in, on account of the clay, and the school 
kindly gave 715 loads of gravel for filling. 

Both crushers and the steam-roller will need considerable 
repairing before ready for work next season. 

The bridge over the Soucook river on the Sheep Davis 
road was in such condition that it was considered unsafe, and 
late in the fall the work of constructing a new bridge there 
was begun. The total cost of the bridge and repairing the 
abutments was $820.51, of which the town of Pembroke paid 
$312,06, their portion of the bridge. 

14 



210 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The season being quite vainy, it was very favorable for the 
sprinkling department. The carts have all been repaired and 
painted and are in good condition for next season. 

The team service of the department is in better condition 
than ever before and w^e now have four two-horse teams. 

A record of the street repairs will be found elsewhere in 
the report. 

I wish to extend my acknowledgements to his honor the 
mayor, the city council, and the city officials for their courtesy 
and consideration toward this department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALFRED CLARK, 

Co7nmissioner of Highvoays.

248 CITY OP CONCORD. 

While the number of alarms exceeded all previous records, 
a large majority of them were minor atlairs accompanied with 
little or no loss. 

The number of fires ascribed to incendiarism was lament- 
ably large and it is to be hoped that the court records for the 
coming year will show the ranks of the hoodlum element to 
have been decimated and the working force at the prison to 
have been strengthened in corresponding ratio. The appa- 
ratus is in good condition. Engine 4 was repaired and Chem- 
ical Engine i was repaired and painted. One harness, four 
Eastman holders and sixty service coats were purchased during 
the year. Seven hundred and fifty feet of hose were relined, 
but no new hose was added to the complement. 

I would respectfully recommend the purchase of one thou- 
sand feet during the coming year, and also the purchase of new 
heating apparatus for the Central station and one pair of 
horses. 

A local fire-alarm system, a village ladder truck and adequate 
water pressure at Penacook would greatly increase the effi- 
ciency of the department. 

As to the further needs of the department I can but repeat 
the recommendations of former vears. The fire-alarm tele- 
graph system is in good condition, although, as explained in 
former reports, some of the circuits are abnormally large. 
One box was removed from and one box added to the system, 
and the main lines were extended one mile. 

A new storage battery was purchased during the year, and 
repairs upon construction were consistent and thorough. 

The lesson taught by the storm which visited this city upon- 
the eleventh of August last should not be soon forgotten. The 
fact that the system escaped heavy loss at that time aflbrds no 
reason to presume that the same good fortune will attend 
similar conditions in the future. 

The voltage of the electric light wires has recently been 
practically doubled. In a great many instances the fire-alarm, 
telephone and light wires occupy positions upon the same 
poles, the fire-alarm wires having the right of way at the top. 
The crossing or intermingling of these wires is liable to be 
followed by far reaching and disastrous consequences. 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 249 

The best method of protection is, of course, artbrded by 
the underground system, but as the time when this will be 
accomplished is probably, to sa}- the least, remote, the minds 
of the men in whose care these wires are placed naturally seek 
the next best means of protection. In my opinion the high- 
wa}' commissioner should be vested with the authority to 
condemn and remove any and all unsound trees which can by 
falling toward any point of the compass reach into or across 
highways traversed bv these wires, whether said trees stand 
upon public or private land. It matters not what associations 
may be connected with a particular tree tending to make its 
removal regretted or what illustrious personages mav have been 
sheltered by its branches, if unsound and carrying the element 
of danger mentioned above it is a menace and should be 
removed. 

No one regrets more than the undersigned the fact that the 
expenditures of this department exceeded the appropriation, 
but at the time the appropriation was inade it was impossible 
to foresee the conditions which subsequently arose. The 
reason therefor can be ascribed neither to carelessness nor 
extravagance. It was simply unavoidable. 

During the month of September I had the honor to attend 
the convention of the International Association of Fire En- 
gineers held at New York City, and I wish to extend ray 
thanks to your honorable body for the opportunity afforded 
me upon that occasion to learn. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. C. GREEN, 

Chief Engineer.

January 29, 7 A. m. Upon the above date and at the time 
stated, it was discovered that the steel ceiling in Sullivan Bros.' 
drug store, corner INIain and Pleasant streets, was discolored, 
evidently from heat. Investigation proved that the brickwork 
under the boiler on the second floor had been overheated, burning 
a hole through the floor and charring two floor timbers. At the 
time of the discovery there was no fire in existence, it having 
apparently died out through lack of draft. It was a fortunate 
escape from a disastrous fire. Loss trifling. No claim for insur- 
ance filed. No alarm given.

Testing Signals. 

For the purpose of testing the condition and accuracy of 
the fire-ahirni 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. The boxes used for this purpose will 
vary each week, alternating in the circuits. 

Upon each other week-day a single blow upon the bells will 
be rung in from a box, alternating as before mentioned. 

The- Fire-Alarm Telegraph 

is the "Gamewell" patent. It embraces 39 miles of wire. 

On the lines are 39 fire-alarm boxes belonging to the city, 
and 9 private boxes, — in all 48. 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 steel). There 
are also 16 mechanical tappers, 40 direct-action tappers, one 
four-circuit repeater, and four indicators. 

The battery consists of 22S storage battery cells for the 
lines, and 34 open circuit battery cells for other electrical 
purposes. 

The alarm system was installed in iSSo by the Gamewell 
Fire-x\larm Telegraph Company. 

Directions for Giving an Alarm. 

Above all things, keep cool. 

To obtain the key to the box break the glass in the key box 
located beneath the alarm box. 

In each box there is a small bell called a "tell-tale," de- 
signed expressly for the purpose of informing you whether an 
alarm is being transmitted, the instant you open the door. 

Open the box, and, if this bell is not heard, pull down the 
hook once only and let go. 

But if this bell should be heard it would indicate that another 
box had been pulled and it would be useless to attempt to 
pull another until the one already pulled had performed its 
mission. 



286 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Wait until twenty seconds have elapsed after the " tell- 
tale " has stopped ringing, close the door, which will restore 
the armature to the position it left when the door was opened. 

Open the door, pull down the hook once only and let go. 

Should there be no response, pull it again. 

Then, should there be no response, go to the next box. 

Unless your presence is most urgently required at the scene 
of the hre, remain at the box to direct the department. 

Never open the box or touch anything pertaining to it except 
in case of fire. 

Never give an alarm for a fire seen at a distance. 

Be reasonably sure that there is a fire before giving an 
alarm. 

Never give an alarm for a chimney fire unless there is 
imminent danger of the building catching.

REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



To the City Council : 

The Board of Water Commissioners has the lioiior to submit 
the following report for the year 1902 : 

The accompanying report of the superintendent contains the 
details of the work of the department for the year and renders an 
extended report from the board unnecessary. 

The present condition of our system is highly satisfactory, 
both as regards the quantity and quality of the supply and phys- 
ical condition. 

The work of replacing the original cement-lined pipe with cast- 
iron has been continued, and the comhig year will practically 
mark the completion of that work in the territory bounded on the 
north by Pleasant, on the east by South Main, on the south by 
West and on the west by South Spring streets, besides relaying 
a section on North Main street, nortli of Chapel street. 

The cottage near the dam has been moved to the east side of 
the dam and the old barn removed and the grounds graded, thus 
removing the appearance of danger of contamination of the 
supply from that source. 

The policy of the board has been to preserve the purity of the 
supply in every possible way and to continue the work of laying 
cast-iron pipe where most needed as far as the means at its dis- 
posal would permit. 

It is hoped that in the future the earnings of the system will 
pay the expenses of maintenance, the interest on the water bonds, 
allow the expenditure of ten or fifteen thousand dollars annually 
for reneAvals and extensions, and pay the instalments of the bonds 
as they mature.

The lowest point reached during the year was ou September 
26, being 184.60 ; the highest was on December 17, 185.50; 
mean height, 184.98, which was 1.12 feet higher than the mean 
height lor the year 1901. 

The water has been running over the overflow through the 
entire year, except eight days in February and Ave days in Sep- 
tember. 

We have replaced nearly two and one half miles of old cement- 
lined pipe with cast-iron, also increasing the size of the mains. 
There still remain of the original cement-lined pipe laid in 1872, 
12.05 miles, and I would respectfully urge that the work of relay- 
ing be continued as fast as the income of the works will allow. 
There are also in use 3.53 miles laid in 1882, and 9.51 miles 
laid in 1887, all of cement-lined pipe, but according to the ex- 
cellent record of the original mains these will be of good service 
for several years after the older pipes have been replaced. 

We have moved the cottage at Penacook lake across the road, 
and built a new stable according to your directions ; the cottage 
needed considerable repairing inside, which was done, a piazza 
was added and the buildings are now in good condition. The 
old barn was moved away and the grounds graded, making that 
end of the lake much more attractive. 

The water in the lake continuing high, we were obliged to cut 
the brush and trees along the shore up to high water line and 
shall continue the work this winter. Tlie wood which we cut is 
used at the pumping station and shop. 

I would call your attention to the fact that our pump has now 
been in use eleven years, and while it has furnished excellent 
service with very little expense for repairs, it would seem advis- 
able to consider the matter of some auxiliary power, as an acci- 
dent would at least cause anxiety to the department as it might 
shut off the entire high service, including St. Paul's School and 
the fire service in Main street. 

I wish to thank your board for many courtesies extended ; and 
I also wish to express here, both for myself and the employees of 
the department, gratitude to Messrs. Fiske and Hood for kind- 
ness during their term of service. During the ten vears of Mr. 



WATER DEPARTMENT. 319 

Fiske's presidency we have always felt free to ask and safe to fol- 
low his counsels ; particularly have I personally appreciated his 
wise guidance and staunch support through the varied experi- 
ences and difficulties of a water departnient. 

Respectfully suhmitted,

REPORT OF CITY ENGINEER, 



Office of the City Engineer, 

Concord, N. H., December 31, 1902. 

To the City Council : 

In accordance with the ordinance creating this department its 
tenth annual report is herewith submitted for your consideration, 
together with a statement of the monies expended on sewer con- 
struction and maintenance. 

The work of this department lias been carried on with the 
usual force, and to their cheerful attention to tlie duties assigned 
them is due, in a large measure, whatever of success has attended 
our etlbrts. 

AVe are not unmindful of the co-operation of the mayor and the 
city council together with the heads of the diiferent departments, 
with whom our relations have been most pleasant, and to whom 
our thanks are due. 

All services required by the city departments have been ren- 
dered as promptly as possible with the small force employed. 

A map of the city has been prepared for publication by the 
city history commission, which map is principally made from 
actual surveys, but some portions of it had to be filled in from 
data secured from other sources, but we believe the information 
from outside sources is as reliable as can be obtained until such 
time as the general survey of the city can be completed. Such 
time as was available was spent on extending the general survey 
in the outlying sections of the town. 



CITY ENGINEER. 



335 



There has been added to the e(niii)meiit of this department one 
eighteen-inch wye level, Avhich by practicing the strictest economy 
was purchased from funds of the annual appropriation. 

The employees of this department during the past season were : 
Frank W. Brown, who resigned in April ; Horace P. Pklgett, 
who succeeded Mr. Brown and remained until October first, as 
assistant engineers, and Harry C. Hill, transitman ; Edward J. 
Murphy, Carl D. Kennedy, and George H. Barber, rodmen. 

Mr. N. W. V. Matheson was employed the latter part of 
December and is still with us. 

The expenses of this department the past season were as fol- 
lows :

Sewers. 

The sewers in the St. Paul's School sewerage precinct have 
been completed and in operation for some months. The small 
sizes of pipe used in this precinct caused some unfavorable com- 
ments to be made by the taxpayers in it, as they had supposed 
that the "combined" system was to be installed instead of the 
"separate" system, but no complaints as to lack of adequate 
service have been received by this department since their comple- 
tion. Three flush tanks are connected with this system and are 
in operation. Tlieir water supply is taken from the city mains, 
and the precinct pays a special rate for water used in thejn. 

The sewers in this precinct were built under conti'act with 
Charles L. Fellows & Co., the contract price for same being 
$5,700; extra work amounting to the sum of $5 was allowed 



326 CITY OF CONCORD. 

and paid in addition to the contract price. No charge was made, 
to this precinct, for inspection dnrin-j: tlie season of 1902, as one 
of the assistants from the engineering; department attended to this 
duty. 

In the city precinct minor repairs^ have been made, tlie spring 
and fall flashings have been thoroughly done, and some small new 
laterals laid, as shown on the following pages of this report. 

One common cause of trouble with small laterals has been the 
stoppage of them by sticks placed in the catch-basins by children ; 
these sticks would remain in the catch-basins until showers or 
rain-storms floated them into the street sewer, where, if they were 
not too long to turn in the main pipe tliey would float away and 
no damage would be done ; but if too long to turn in the street 
pipe they would lodge partially in the main and the balance of 
their length in the basin connection, and would then catcli any 
floating substances. This would continue until some pai'ty com- 
plained of flooded basements or poor service, and upon investiga- 
tion we would tind the difficulty at the catch-basin connection. 

The remedy for this trouble woidd lie in the use of some catch- 
basin trap which would not admit sticks long enough to do dam- 
age. Such traps are on the market. 

Nothing has been done in the East Concord precinct either in 
the line of repairs or extensions. 

In the West Concord precinct there has been built an extension 
of the North State street sewer in the Sewall's Falls road ; also a 
twenty-inch outlet sewer from a point near the old kit factory prop- 
erty to the Merrimack rivei-, which outlet combines tlie three old 
outlets at this point that emptied into Rattlesnake brook ai)d at times 
caused complaints from people in their vicinity. This sewer 
should remove all cause for future complaints and leave the brook 
in a much better sanitary condition in times of di'outh. 

The twenty-inch outlet was built under contract with Mr. John 
Walker, of Newmarket, N. H. The contract price amounted to 
$3,034. No extra work was allowed. The inspection on this 
work was furnished by the engineering department. 

A statement of the expenditures in this precinct will be found 
in this report. 



CITY ENGINEER. '' 337 

Penacook Precinct. 

No extensions have been made in this precinct during the past 
season. 

The sewers have been tlushed and some repairs made. 

A statement of the amounts expended will be found on the fol- 
lowing pages of this report. 

The cost of sewers constructed the past season has been some- 
what in excess of the usual price, caused chiefly by the scarcity of 
labor, together with the general increase in price of materials 
used. We have never found it so difficult to procure labor since 
our connection with this depai'tment as it was during the season 
of 1902. The demand for labor of all classes was in excess of 
the local supply, and at times we were seriously handicapped. 
All things considered, the cost of the work will compare favorably 
with that in other cities. 

There should be a general revision of our entire sewer system 
in the city precinct in the near future, as we have some portions 
of it that are not properly proportioned to drain the areas that 
have been added to the districts which they were originally 
designed to accommodate. 

I would suggest that some definite steps be taken towards 
adopting a general plan for our sewers, to be followed in future 
changes or extensions, and that the services of some competent 
consulting engineer be secured to co-operate with your engineer 
in making a thorough study of the situation and preparing some 
definite plan for your consideration. 

This is a matter where we should obtain the best advice to be 
had and adopt the most feasible methods of construction . 

Some of our districts can now be provided with sewers that 
will be adequate for any future growth, as they have reached the 
limit for area that can be drained, if the old districts are main- 
tained with their present outlets. Still, it may seem best upon a 
thorough study of the whole question, to arrange the main out- 
lets in a different manner and combine more districts, or possibly 
divide into smaller sections some of the areas draining through 
one outlet. 



838 CITY OF CONCORD. 

It is not the idea of" your engineer to at once expend large 
suras of raoney upon the work of reconstructing the entire sys- 
tem, but rather to have some complete and definite plan at hand 
for any and all future extensions or changes. 

Your serious consideration of this question is of importance to 
the city's sanitary condition. 

As clerk of the committee on sewers and drains, I have col- 
lected and deposited wath the city treasurer, for which I hold his 
receipts, the sum of $51, for rent of pumps and hoister and the 
sale of old materials.

REPORT OF BOARD OF EXAMINERS OF 
PLUMBERS. 



To the City Council: 

The third annual report of the board of examiners of 
plumbers, for the year 1903, is herewith submitted. 

The organization of the board remains the same as in 1901. 

During the past year the board has held nineteen meetings, 
twelve regular and seven special. 

We have examined during the year seven candidates for 
journeymen's licenses, all of whom have successfully passed 
and received their licenses. 

The total receipts for the year, for fees and renewal of 
licenses and certificates, were $25.00. The cost of materi- 
als for examination was $10.64. 

Your examiners would renew their pi^evious recommenda- 
tions and respectfully suggest that some suitable provision be 
made in the new city building for the practical work of this 
board ; the city engineer's office is not the proper place for 
such work and has not the proper fittings, it also interferes 
with the work of that department. 

The following is a list of all the registered plumbers, given 
in the order in which they appear on the register :

SANITARY DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



To His Honor the Mayor and City Council : 

So far as any serious epidemics or other unusual occur- 
rences are concerned, the past year has been a rather unevent- 
ful one for the board of health. The following report com- 
prises the general work of the board for the year ending 
December 31, 1902, together with a report of the work done 
imder the department of milk inspection. 

The membership of the board and its organization have 
remained the same as in 1901. Mr. Palmer, as sanitary offi- 
cer, has rendered the same efficient service as in the past, 
and the board wishes to express its appreciation of his zeal 
and energy. 

The general health of the city for the past year, as measured 
by the numerical standard of the death-rate, was not quite so 
satisfactory as in 1901, the total deaths in 1902 being 38 r, or 
13.63 per thousand population, as against 352, or 13. 11 per 
thousand in 1901. The number of deaths from the different 
diseases, the number in each of the different wards, etc., will 
be found in the detailed report of the sanitary officer. 

The plumbing law has now been in force long enough so 
that its good results are becoming apparent, and the general 
character of the work done in this city will compare favorably 
with that of any city of similar size. Plans and complete 
records of all work done are kept on file in the office of this 
board. Undoubtedly the plumbing ordinance has contributed 
verv materially to the sanitary welfare of the cit\-. 



SANITARY DEPARTMENT. 349 



CONTAGIOUS DISEASES. 



Since sanitary measures have a most decided effect in 
diminishing this class of diseases, their presence or absence is 
a good criterion of the general healthfulness of the city ; in 
fact a better one than the general death-rate, which simply 
gives us the number of cases of sickness which ended fatally, 
but no idea of the duration thereof or of the number of persons 
temporarily incapacitated. During the past year Concord has 
been especially fortunate in this respect, there being but 
twenty-nine cases of diphtheria, two of which were fatal; six 
cases of scarlet fever, twenty-seven of measles, and two of 
smallpox, none of which were fatal. 

Of the two cases of smallpox the first was discovered May 
21 in the office of a local physician to whom the patient had 
applied for treatment. A consultation was held, and it was 
decided to remove the patient at once to the isolation hospital 
on the Plains. The boarding-house where the man had 
resided since his arrival from Boston, about ten days previous, 
was immediately fumigated and his roommate vaccinated and 
kept under observation until he made his escape to Provi- 
dence, R. I., where he developed a mild case of varioloid, 
his vaccination having modified the disease. No further 
cases resulted from these, and the patient on the Plains finally 
made a good recovery and was discharged at the end of seven 
weeks. 

The other case of smallpox was that of a child at Pena- 
cook, discovered the last day of the year and iinmediately 
removed to the isolation hospital in Boscaw^en. This was 
done as Boscawen already had several patients in their hospi- 
tal and could take care of one more at much less expense than 
that for which we could open our hospital. 

We can only attribute our freedom from this disease to the 
fact that as a rule our citizens either from choice or because 
of the requirements of their employers are well protected by 
vaccination. This work, taken up last year for the first time 
in a systematic manner among our school children has been 
continued in the same way this year under the supervision of

the health officer. It is but courtesy to mention here that this 
work has been greatly facilitated, and much assistance ren- 
dered to the board, by the hearty co-operation of the truant 
officer, Mr. Johnson. 

TYPHOID FEVER, 

Subject to limitations and sources of error the presence of 
typhoid fever may be taken as an index to the purity of a city's 
water and milk supply. During the past year there have 
been twenty-three cases of this disease reported, three of 
which resulted fatally. Thirteen of these cases occurred in 
September; eight were in ward 7, and four were in ward 4. 
On investigation in the tamilies where these cases occurred, 
no apparent source of contamination could be found, either 
with the milk or the water supply, but this does not necessa- 
rily mean that there was no such source. The board recog- 
nizes that typhoid is a preventable disease and one that 
usually carries off people in the prime of life when they are 
of most value to the community, and is doing and will con- 
tinue to do all that is possible to limit its spread. 

BARBER SHOPS. 

There is little doubt in the minds of those who have given 
much thought to the matter that barber shops furnish a fruit- 
ful source of infection. The barber practically never steril- 
izes his instruments, or when he does it is in such an incom- 
plete manner as to be of little practical value, and only serves 
to give a fiilse sense of security. The common use of the 
towel, the magnesia block and the astringent pencil should 
be stopped, as well as several other such practices. It is time 
that some attention should be given to these things and that 
they should be reached through proper legislation licensing 
each shop and providing some form of inspection. 

INSPECTION OF MILK. 

Inspection of milk in dairies for the year 1903 has been 
conducted as regularly and as thoroughly as the limited ap- 
propriation set aside for that purpose would permit. Two 



SANITARY DEPARTMENT. 351 

hundred and ninety-one samples of milk were collected and 
examined, and forty-five dairies were inspected. In the ex- 
aminations of milk made, the average per cent, of cream was 
4.25%, of solids exclusive of fat 8.68%, and total solids 
12.93%. It will be noticed that the average per cent, of 
cream runs high, while the per cent, of solids exclusive of fat 
run low; but the total solids give a fair average. This show- 
ing is accounted for in this way, that dairymen in general 
strive to get cows that will produce milk rich in cream and 
of good quantity, the matter of solids being completely ignored. 
The public are to an extent chargeable with blame on this 
point, as they have insisted on this quality of milk. Milk 
solids are to an extent essential to the maintenance of the 
normal functions of the body. The law wisely demands a 
milk much higher in solids exclusive of fat than our milk will 
ordinarily test, and it is the intention of the board to improve 
the milk in this resjoect ; this is no mean undertaking and will 
require some years of careful attention to accomplish. Public 
sentiment, in the meantime, must be taught that milk to be a 
food, well-balanced in its chemical constituents, must contain 
more of solids exclusive of fat, and less fat. 

Our experience in the past year has taught us that milk 
dealers do not exercise the proper amount of care in the dis- 
tribution of their milk, neither is there a proper amount of 
cleanliness observed. There is so much detail that has to be 
watched bv the inspector that frequent inspections are neces- 
sary to detect frauds and adulterations. We are keeping an 
accurate account of all inspections, both of the milk and of the 
dairies, and by this record we are better able to look up the 
standing of each man. 

We have been hampered considerably in obtaining a good 
collector, as it requires a man with considerable tact and ex- 
perience. The inspection of farms has been taken up in a 
small w^iy and enough has been learned to convince the board 
that the sanitary conditions are not what they should be, and 
that a lot of hard and persistent work should be put in along 
this line. Out of forty-fiv^e dairies inspected only five came

up to the requirements. Many of the sanitary evils could be 
eliminated if owners of dairies would only exercise a mini- 
mum amount of care and slight expenditure of money.

REPORT OF THE SANITARY OFFICER. 



To the Board of Health : 

Gentlemen, — It is my pleasure to present to you my 
tenth annual report as your sanitaiy officer, which embraces 
the entire work of this department, except the milk inspection, 
for the year ending December 31, 1903. 

This work has been fruitful in the betterment of sanitary 
conditions all along the line and throughout the entire city. 

The general health conditions of the city have been good 
during the year as compared with previous years, as will be 
observed by reference to the mortuary table herein presented. 

The total number of deaths during the year was 381, in- 
cluding all who died at public institutions coming here for 
treatment, but are not included in making up the death-rate. 

It is with a good deal of personal pride that I refer to some 
of the reforms accomplished in the interest of public health 
during the past ten years. The removal of sixteen hundred 
privies and substitutes of water-closets, the licenses of gar- 
bage teams and cpntrol of receptacles, the inspection and tests 
of plumbing, the establishment of the Foster Ward at the 
Margaret Pillsbury General Hospital, where a large number 
of contagious and infectious diseases can be treated coming 
from localities and families too poor to afford proper facilities 
for the management and treatment of such diseases, the free 
distribution of diphtheria antitoxin to the afflicted poor, the 
frequent fumigation of schoolhouses ; also the fumigation of 
cases of death from tuberculosis, and assistance given the 
poor who are placed in quarantine when necessary, and deemed 
a legitimate expense for the protection of the public health and 
are not made paupers thereby. 

The law giving the board of health the authority to enforce 
vaccination in schools, and many other minor reforms, have 
been put into effect, which has enabled us to put the health 
department in a better position to protect the lives of the citi- 
zens of our city than has been possible heretofore.

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 



To the City Council: 

The trustees of the public library present herewith the 
report of our efficient librarian, which gives a compi-ehensive 
view of the work that has been accomplisiied and the pro- 
spective benefits that will result if the library is well sup- 
ported. An examination of her report discloses some of the 
needs of the library — as, for instance, the need of more 
room. This is a necessity which is daily growing more 
urgent and which will demand and require practical attention 
in the near future if the benefits of the library are to be fully 
and adequately enjoyed by its numerous patrons. 

The librarian's suggestion in regard to the use of the money 
derived from fines and the sale of catalogues seems to be a 
reasonable one, and it is hoped it will receive your favorable 
consideration.

REPORT OF THE CITY LIBRARIAN FOR 

1902. 



To the Board of Trustees of the Concord Pit b/ic Library: 

Gentlemen, — The notable thing about the year's work at 
the library has been the increased use of the reference room. 
Time was when the only clubs ladies belonged to were litera- 
ture classes which began with the stud}' of Chaucer and ended 
with Gray's *•' Elegy." Now women everywhere are study- 
ing eveiything, and our townswomen are iiot behind any one 
in the pursuit of knowledge. Each hour of each day is sacred 
to some club, and the members thereof largely prepare their 
lessons therefor in our reference room. Is not that gratify- 
ing? The diversity of lines along which clubs work has 
caused a general dusting of our non-fiction books; many 
works on prehistoric America have been used for the first 
time in a decade, and there has even been a waiting list for 
Smithsonian Reports. On the other hand, a contrasting 
demand has been for the current magazines which are wanted 
by those writing on topics as modern as "Contemporaneous 
American painters." 

Besides the club use of the library thus inadequately men- 
tioned, its use by the schools deserves description. On the 
reference room table are rows of books labelled with different 
teachers' names and consisting of volumes selected by those 
teachers for consultation by their pupils. For instance, a 
principal who teaches American history has twenty- five vol- 
umes selected — Fiske, Lodge, Parkman, Justin Winsor, etc. 
— and has marks put in at pages where there is a live thought 
he wants assimilated. High school pupils come across the 
street, by permission, in school hours to this room for work, 
and if the library is thus privileged to become a higher school, 
we realize it is owing to the co-operation of the teachers in the 
city. Not only are pupils thus introduced to the weightier 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 371 

books, but they are required to read many on our shelves 
which make for general culture, and it is owing to teachers' 
requirements that some of Scott, Dickens, and Thackeray are 
going to be known to some of this generation. Pupils who 
enter for the annual prize speaking contest do excellent work 
in looking up material for their efforts, particularly those 
who prepare original declamations. 

With an assistant in the reference room interested to help 
all comers, with every shelf laden with books labelled for 
some special club or class, and with every chair taken, we 
realize keenly that more and better reference work could be 
done in a room four times the size of the present one. A 
little girl was lately caught just in time as she was coming 
away from the reference room because there was no vacant 
seat there. It is not unreasonable if a lady complains that as 
she is trying to get into the spirit of an art critique, she has 
to rub elbows literally with a boy cribbing a composition on 
" Sports, Ancient and Modern." A library wants to be a bee- 
hive of industry, but it does not want to be a jumble, and we 
sometimes feel we are getting too thick to have the true library' 
atmosphere. 

Yet a crowded building is not the only drawback a library 
can have. A poor location would injure its usefulness in a 
communit}-. One has only to go, for instance, to the rather 
inaccessible and gloomy library in Manchester to understand 
what up-hill work the librarian there has to do in order to 
attract just such patronage as comes naturally to us here, 
where the ideal proximity of schoolhouse and library, and the 
central, sunny situation of the latter must be credited with 
much of our desirable custom above recounted. 

With several hundred dollars less to spend than last year, 
our purchases have not been noteworthy, excepting possibly 
the New International Encyclopaedia, bought with the interest 
on the Cogswell fund. Though unable to bu}' expensive 
books, we have tried to buy timely ones. This does not 
mean that the commercial spirit, inquiring " Who will read 
this?" has governed our purchasing so much as the query. 



372 CITY OF CONCORD. 

"Is this a book which a general library of this size in this 
particular town ought to possess?" We hear of two new 
books on the same subject; it is made a matter of conscience 
to puzzle out which is the better one for our library to buy. 
Sometimes light is thrown in an unexpected wav. For 
example, Abbot's " American Merchant Ships and Sailors," 
and Marvin's "American Merchant Marine," appear this 
winter and cover the same ground. I ponder over the style 
and tables of contents of both, and the clerk in the bookstore 
volunteers: "Judge Corning took both home and kept 
Abbot's." Knowing our mayor to be an authority concern- 
ing works on American history, I do not hesitate to suggest 
Abbot's to my book committee as the one to purcliase. 

We have several times during the year availed ourselves of 
our privilege of drawing books for borrowers from the Public 
Library and the General Theological Library of Boston. 
Some teachers preparing for Dartmouth examinations were 
thus enabled to get some rare books they needed, which our 
library could not afford to own permanently. 

In connection with this subject of books wbich the library 
would like to own but cannot, I wish to quote from the Salem, 
Mass., librarian who says, " I would suggest to persons in- 
terested in special classes of books that a ver}^ small fund 
would enable the library to build up departmental libraries 
which would be a credit to the library and of use to readers. 
For example, the interest of $i,ooo annually expended for 
music would soon give us a very creditable collection, and a 
gift of $5,000 would enable us to build up a valuable fine 
arts department. All books bought with funds given the 
library would bear the name of the donor on the book-plate." 

The Library Art Club has periodically sent us exhibits, 
and while pictures are plentiful'in store windows and maga- 
zines, there is no museum in town to show intelligently made 
collections of views, and therefore the library feels justified in 
spending five dollars a year to give this stimulus to the higher 
tastes of the community. An exhibit of the paintings in the 
National Gallery at London appealed to all, as was to be 
expected, but it was a happy surprise to see the hold the 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 373 

photographs of the Sistine Chapel took upon people as they 
came and went. Even the children were arrested by the 
power of the Michael Angelo frescoes. 

Yet no feature should be* introduced into a library which 
would prevent people from thinking primarily of books in 
connection with it. A public library ought to implant such 
a confidence in the ability of books to instruct, delight and 
inspire that any townsman in need of these benefits would in- 
stinctively think of finding them in books. I am not sure 
that a library better have a lecture hall or an art museum at- 
tached. Certainly it ought not to be so zealous in showing 
it is up-to-date as to become a variety show, and it ought not, 
in spite of due interest in children, to become a kindergarten. 

It may seem to many as if our wish for a children's room 
contradicted the above. But a children's room would not be a 
playground. An account of a week of work in the children's 
room at the Providence, R. I., public library proves conclu- 
sively that such a department need not lessen the usefulness 
and dignity of a library. 

At present the best magazines in our reading-room are 
often appropriated by the little folks. I recently found three 
boys, not one of whom could read, contentedly holding upside 
down the current numbers of the "Century," " McClure's " 
and "World's Work. " On a busy afternoon this misappro- 
priation might go on for some time before we had leisure to 
discover and remedy it. And lately a small girl, required to 
do the school's collateral reading, and taken by the title " A 
Fool's Errand," which seems to have a strange fascination 
for all whether they are in the first or the eighth grade, asked 
if that "Tom Fool Errand" was "right for little girls?" 
These same juveniles, turned adrift in a children's room, 
would find only the material suited to them and not flounder 
out of their depth. With all the noble stateliness or intimate 
delights a public library can maintain, it is at best a poor 
foster-mother to a child who has not grown up in a father's 
library. And with upspringing Tabard Inns and Booklovers 
libraries, the next generation of children will not have had 
even a grandfather's library to browse in. 



374 CITY OF CONCORD. 

During the year several hundreds of children have been to 
our so-called boys' room, but there should be more solid at- 
tractions and more careful surveillance in a room which they 
frequent; and our little basement room is so cold in zero 
weather and so flooded during thaws that we then have to 
deny the children access to it, even the little fellow who urged 
that he had on rubber boots. 

We of the library stafl', feeling that w^ith the pressure of 
work we might lose the spirit of a library while fulfilling its 
mechanical duties, have a literature lesson every week, and 
from time to time put ourselves through examination papers 
obtained from library schools. 

There is a little financial matter to which I should like to 
call your attention. We receive between $175 and $300 an- 
nually from fines and the sale of catalogues, and this money 
is not made part of the library's revenue, but goes into the 
city treasury for general outlay. In other cities the fine money 
is spent by the libraries and our borrowers suppose that such 
is the case in Concord ; hundreds have cheerfully remarked, 
as they handed over their pennies, " Well, I'm glad to help 
the library ;" they seem disappointed at learning that their pay- 
ments do not buy new books or otherwise make the library 
directly more acceptable to themselves. If it would be satis- 
factory to yourselves and to the city government to have it 
enacted that beginning with this year the money accruing 
from fines and catalogues should be credited to the library's 
account, I am sure that such an arrangement would be pleas- 
ing' to the general public. The fact that this extra sum would 
be a much-needed help in the yearly running of the library 
should also have weight. 

Before closing this report we would insert some figures, for 
as the Salem librarian again says, "The library is not run 
for the sake of statistics but they are often suggestive." 

During 1902, 704 new borrowers have registered; a larger 
number than in 1901. 

One hundred and twenty volumes have become worn out. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 375 

We have added 800 volumes — 409 by purchase of new 
works, 177 by binding of magazines, 132 by purchase of 
new copies to replace worn-out books, 60 by gifts, 32 by pur- 
chase of duplicate copies of books in great demand. 

Eighty-eight thousand three hundred and ninety-six books 
have been given out ; libraries estimate this desk circulation 
to represent only a third of their entire use by the commu- 
nity. 

The reading of fiction has decreased from 76 to 72 per 
cent, in the past twelve months. Only one book has been 
lost in that time. 

There are now 25,082 bound volumes in the library. I 
have heard that the present building was intended to accom- 
modate 20,000. 

We would herewith thank the many who have brightened 
the library with flowers or enriched it with gifts of books and 
periodicals. 

Without the support of trustees and assistants, the success- 
ful administration of a librarv would be impossible. As it 
is, I feel our library is in a fair way to do what every library 
should do, that is, as it grows, serve higher uses. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRACE BLANCHARD, 

Librarian.

REPORT OF HISTORY COMMISSION. 



To the City Council: 

The City History Commissioa has the pleasure of report- 
ing that the first volume of the " History of Concord " is 
printed, and that the two volumes will be ready for delivery 
early this summer. The estimate of the printer is that the 
work will be completed some time in June. 

As authorized by vote of the city council, the History Com- 
mission applied to the legislature for an act of incorporation, 
and reports that the commission was duly incorporated by an 
act approved March 34, 1903. 

April 4, 1903, the incorporators accepted the act of incor- 
poration, and organized by the choice of Lyman D. Stevens 
as president, Howard F. Hill as secretary, and Benjamin A. 
Kimball as treasurer.

CEMETERY DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS OF CEMETERIES. 



To the City Council of Concord: 

Your commissioners of cemeteries have simply to state that 
your appropriation of last year has been expended in the 
planting of trees and shrubs, and in the general care and im- 
provement of both cemeteries committed to our care. 

We have assurance that the chapel, the generous gift of 
Miss Susan Perkins, will be built the coming season. This 
will fill a long felt want. 

It is the desire of the commissioners to plant still more 
shrubs and trees to meet the growing demand. 

The burials of the year have been one hundred and ninety- 
four. One hundred and sixty-nine of this number have been 
laid at rest in our beautiful " Blossom Hill Cemetery." 

A generous appropriation by your body will enable us to 
beautify more and more this last resting-place of our dead. 

Whatever sum you may place at our disposal will be ex- 
pended, we trust, in a manner that will merit your approval.

Secretary of Coimnissioners.

The appropriations were nearly one thousand dollars less 
than for the year 1901. 

The amount thus appropriated is barely sufficient for the 
maintenance of the parks, so that practically all new work 
has to be postponed. It would seem as if the value of this 
development had already been demonstrated, so that it would 
merit a more generous consideration. In the incompleted 
state in which the larger parks remain to-day, a wrong im- 
pression is gained, whereas if the scheme were fully carried 
out, a more active interest would result. Just as an incom- 
pleted building or structure of any kind is an eye-sore, so it 
is with an incompleted park ; the unfinished part detracts 
from that which has been wrousfht out. 



394 CITY OP CONCORD. 

White Park. 

The work the past year at White park has been in trying 
to maintain what has ah-eady been accomplished, for with 
rain and tornadoes, much extra work has been necessitated. 
The commissioners had hoped to build a new tool house, but 
only the foundation was put in, and it is hoped that for the 
coming year a sufficient appropriation may be made to pro- 
vide for the erection of this building, in which shall be placed 
much needed toilet rooms. The unfinished condition of the 
Centre street side must remain until funds are provided to 
remedy the work of widening the street. 

In May a disastrous tornado visited the west part of the 
city and much damage was caused in this park by the loss of 
over forty trees. This park is largely used during the sum- 
mer months, and the pond has given pleasure to many in the 
good skating during the winter. 

The expenditures have been: For labor, $1,708.38; keep- 
ing ice clear for skating, $29.78; swan, $25 ; grain and fer- 
tilizer, $35.65 ; seed and shrubs, $18.50; water, $15 ; repairs, 
$29.71; lumber, $32.29; hardware, $30.23; incidentals, 
$83.92 ; a total of $2,008.46. 

Rollins Pauk. 

Rollins park has been enjoyed by many as heretofore. 
Some new work in constructing paths and preparing the east 
side for extensive planting has been accomplished, and work 
will be pushed forward as fast as the funds will allow. Mr. 
Flanders has kept good order, and very little damage has been 
done. A toilet room has been provided and a new pump in- 
stalled. 

A very disagreeable condition exists on the north side of 
the park in the shape of pig-pens and hen-yards, a feature 
which was foreseen by the commissioners, but their requests 
were denied, so that now we are favored with these condi- 
tions. 

The expenditures have been: For labor, $512.05; shrubs, 
$60.80; grain and fertilizer, $24.70; lumber, $15.20; repairs, 
$43.79 ; hardware, $25.54; incidentals, $57.17; a total of 
$739.25. 



PUBLIC PARKS. 895 

Penacook Park. 

The increased appropriation was used to repair and paint 
the pavilion, which was fast disintegrating. This park has 
been used by many picnic parties (hu-ing the summer, and the 
increased number of boats have drawn more people there 
than of late 3'ears. 

The expenditures have been : For labor, $161.37 ' lumber, 
$39.13; incidentals, $38.66; a total of $238.16. 

Bradley Park. 

The work at this park is simply keeping it in good condi- 
tion, as is the case in regard to Ridge Avenue park, which 
is growing more attractive year by year. 

The expenditures of Bradley park have been : For labor, 
$35.89; fertilizer, $6.35 ; a total of $42.14. 

The expenditures at Ridge Avenue park have been : For 
labor, $25.39 ' feitilizer, $3.75 ; a total of $29.14. 

The work of grading and seeding Fiske park was completed 
luider the supervision of the superintendent; 146 loads of 
loam were used. The expense, amounting to over $300 in 
excess of the appropriation made in 1901, has been borne by 
private contributions. Some shrubs should be planted, then 
the only cost will be for maintenance. 

In the process of developing a park system, there will be 
stimulated a corresponding improvement in the private 
grounds about a city, showing that there is a love for the beau- 
tiful, if only it can lind expression. A demonstration of such 
work, if made practical, as shown in the small parks and 
plots of land which have already been developed will provide 
an object lesson. 

The care of the trees along the public thoroughfares should 
have better attention. Under the existing law ample provi- 
sion is made for such care. It is also hoped that in the near 
future the gift of a fountain to the city, which has been sug- 
gested, may be realized. 



396 CITY OF CONCORD. 

It is the aim and desire of the commissioners to do what 
they can to make Concord a beautiful cit}-, and it should be 
the ambition of every loyal citizen to help on this good work.

448 CITY OF CONCORD. 

I liereby certify that I have examined the foregoing accounts 
of William F. Thayer, city treasurer, for the year 1902, and 
find all items of receipt and expenditure therein properly recorded 
and authenticated by appropriate vouchers, and the several items 
correctly cast, and the cash balance to be fourteen thousand five 
hundred and thirty-seven dollars and fifteen cents ($14,537.15), 
and as treasurer of the City Water Department, cash balance to 
be five thousand two hundred and twenty-eight dollars and 
seventy-nine cents ($5,228.79). 

I have also verified the account of the trust and sinking funds 
of the city, and find such trust and sinking funds invested and

report.) 

In concluding my term of fourteen years as city marshal, I 
should be ungrateful if I did not express a word of appreciation 
for the assistance and hearty co-operation of the citizens, mayors, 
police commissioners, and the police department of Concord ; and 
I feel that whatever success I may have merited by my etlbrts in 
this office should be duly shared by those who have so ably 
assisted me. 

My successor, James E. Rand, who has served this city faith- 
fully for over forty years, needs no commendation from me. 

I wish to extend my heartiest thanks to Capt. Daniel S. Flan- 
ders, who for nearly fourteen years proved to be a loyal and able 
officer. The efficiency and discipline of the Concord police force 
was greatly augmented by the faithful assistance he rendered me. 

The police commissioners, Josiah E. Dwight, Giles Wheeler, 
and Myron J. Pratt, at all times gave me their heartiest support, 
and for their courteous treatment they have my sincere thanks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G. SCOTT LOCKE, 

City Marshal. 



REPORT OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. 



Concord, December 31, 1902. 
To the Honorable Mayor and City Co7(iiciI : 

Gentlemen^ — I have the honor herewith to submit the 
report of the police department for the six months ending 
December 31, 1903. 

I also offer for your consideration such suggestions and 
-recommendations as I deem necessary for the welfare of the 
department. 

The Force. 

The force has undergone some changes in the past six 
-months. G. Scott Locke, who was city marshal for the past 
fourteen years, resigned, his resignation taking effect July i, 
1902. I was appointed city marshal January z"]^ 1902, and 
took oath of office July i, 1902, and assumed charge of the 
department. Patrolman John E. Gay was promoted to assistant 
■marshal July i, 1902, and assumed the duties of assistant 
marshal at once. 

The organization of the police department at the present 
time is as follows : 

Police Commissioners. 
Josiah E. Dvvight, Giles Wheeler, Myron J. Pratt. 

Marshal, James E. Rand, appointed patrolman April 16, 
1861 ; captain, April 16, 1891 ; assistant marshal, April 16, 
.1S94; city marshal, January 27, 1902. 

Assistant, John E. Gay, appointed special officer April 2, 
1894; patrolman, August 6, 1894; resigned as patrolman, 
JVIarch 28, 1900; appointed special officer, June 11^, 1900* 
patrolman, April 24, 1901 ; assistant marshal, July i, 1902. 

Captain night watch, Daniel S. Flanders, appointed special 
officer June 26, 1886; patrolman, January 26, 1889; cap- 
ilain, January i, 1S95-

Out of eleven officers, which constitutes the force at the- 
present time, two are stationed at Penacook, leaving nine in 
the city proper for day and night duty. 

In years past, from four o'clock a. m. until seven A. m.,. 
after the night men had gone home, there was only one man 
on duty. 

Since July i , the men have been arranged so there are not 
less than two men on duty during the twenty-four hours each' 
day. 

The night officers also change their beats every week, giv- 
ing each officer a chance to get familiar with all the beats,, 
and that portion of the city that they cover, which I consider^ 
is of advantage to the officer and a benefit to the public.

By reference to the foregoing table it will be seen that 
there were a large number of doors found open, and secured. 
This shows the thorough work done by the patrolmen, and 
undoubtedly prevented larcenies that might otherwise have 
occurred. The large number of doors tried (258,434) may 
be surprising to a good many, but is obtained by trying each 
door three times every night.

Lodgers. 

The number of persons furnished lodging at the police 
station during the past six months is about the same as the 
corresponding six months of last year. 

In most cases the persons are able-bodied, robust looking 
men, claiming to be looking for work, but the majority of 
them are looking for something to eat, and had rather tramp 
about the country and sleep in the station houses than work. 
There are some, no doubt, who are worthy of help, but it is 
a very hard matter to tell who they are.

Crime. 



During the period covered by this report the city has been 
free from any serious crime. There have been a very few 
sneak robberies committed, the amount of property stolen 
was in the aggregate small, and mostly recovered and re- 
turned to the owners. 



460 CITY OF CONCORD. 

In the past season we have had considerable trouble with 
youthful offenders who have been connected with a few 
robberies, but most of the stolen property was recovered and 
returned to the owners. 

Having captured a gang of this class a short time ago, we 
are in hopes that the trouble from this quarter is at an end for 
the present. 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

Police Signal Service. 

The present police signal service, which was installed some 
years ago, has been and is now of great advantage to the 
force. But there are other and more improved systems that 
are in operation in other cities, that would give better satis- 
faction. I would respectfully recommend that in the near 
future a first-class signal service be installed (Gamewell 
system) such as are in use in other cities, which I think would 
add much to the equipment of the department. 

Patrol Wagon. 

At the present time the onlv wagon the department has for 
such purpose is a two-seated Democrat wagon, which is all 
right in its place, but is very undesirable and inconvenient to 
load and convey intoxicated parties to the station, and I would 
respectfully recommend the purchase in the near future of a 
light patrol wagon, which would add greatly to the con- 
venience of the department. 

Ambulance. 

The city ambulance is a great convenience to all classes, 
and is under the care of the city marshal, but without any 
definite rules or regulations. Many times the officer in charge 
is requested and expected to help dress and load the patient 
into the ambulance. In many cases of accident there are 
more friends of the injured parties wish to accompany them 
to the hospital than the ambulance can accommodate, and 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 461 

being refused creates a hard feeling toward the officer in 
charge. Should this meet with your favor, I would respect- 
fully recommend the passage of an ordinance regulating the 
number allowed inside, and conditions to be complied with 
bv the parties requesting the use of the ambulance, which I 
think would be a protection to the officer in charge and a 
benefit to all parties concerned, 

.Stable. 

At the present time, the horse, wagon, and ambulance, are 
kept at a near-by livery stable, and in case of emergency calls 
there are some delays in making a quick start. I would 
respectfully recommend in the future the erection of a stable 
at the rear of the police station, sufficient in size to accommo- 
date horse, wagon, ambulance, and patrol wagon, and the 
appointment of a permanent janitor who could fill the posi- 
tion of janitor, hostler, and driver, which, in my opinion, 
would be economy for the city, and add much to the efficiency 
of the force. 

More Officers. 

The present police force is inadequate to the wants of the 
public. There is a request by many prominent taxpayers for 
more officers. At the present time there is only one night 
officer south of Pleasant street, and one north of Centre street, 
and none west of Union street. On account of the large 
increase in the population at the south end in the past two 
seasons, there is a constant demand for another night officer 
in that section of the city. Also at the west end and in the 
vicinity of White park and that residential part of the city. 
There is also an urgent demand for a night officer in that 
part of the city known as Fosterville, which is very thickly 
settled with the laboring class of people of different nation- 
alities, and in my opinion needs a night officer as much as any 
other part of the city, and I would most respectfully recom- 
mend that provisions be made for the appointment of three 
additional police officers for night service. 



462 CITY OF CONCORD. 



IN GENERAL. 



I am pleased to commend to your attention the good work 
of the officers and members of the force. They have been 
vigilant and attentive to their duties, and have cheerfully 
responded to all calls made upon them for extra service, and 
I sincerely extend m}' thanks to them for the cordial support 
thev have given me since mv appointment as marshal. 

In concluding this report permit me to return thanks to the 
honorable mavor and city council for the support you have 
given me; also to the board of ^)olice commissioners, judge 
of police court, and City Solicitor Edmund S. Cook, all of 
whom have been very kind, considerate and accommodating 
-at any and all times; and to all others who have contributed 
-to our success we extend our thanks. 

Respectfullv submitted, 

JAMES E. RAND, 

City Marshal. 



REPORT OF CLERK OF POLICE COURT. 



To the City Co7i7icil : 

The clerk of the police court submits the following report 
for the year ending December 31, 1902 : 

Number of civil cases entered, 109. 
Received entry fees in civil cases . . . $54.50 

Paid city treasurer ...... 54-50 

In the past there has been no index to the clerk's record of 
criminal cases. Commencing January 1, 1903, all criminal 
cases will be properly indexed. 

The coming year a civil docket for attorneys is to be tried 
as an experiment. This docket will be similar to the docket 
kept in the supreme court, and will aid materially in the 
-ascertainment at all times of the live cases before said court. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HARRY R. HOOD, 

Clerk of Police Cotirt. 



REPORT OF CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council: 

I respectfully submit the following report for the year 1902: 

On January i, 1902, the following suits against the city of 
Concord were pending : Mary A. Bullock v. Concord ; 
Lavina Arlin v. Concord ; Concord Street Railway v. Con- 
cord ; Augustus B. Hall v. Concord; and Joseph Stickney v. 
Concord. 

The suits of Mary A. Bullock and Lavina Arlin were 
entered atthe April term, 1900, of the supreme court. These 
suits were for the recovery of damages for land taken in wid- 
ening and straightening North State street in 1S99. The 
amount claimed in the Arlin suit was $350, and in the Bul- 
lock suit, $150. I made a very thorough investigation of 
these claims, and finally offered $200 in full settlement of both 
suits, this amount to be divided between the parties as they 
might agree. This offer was accepted by the parties, and on 
April 19, 1902, I paid to Mitchell & Foster, attorneys, $200 
in full settlement and discharge of both suits, and got from 
the parties proper receipts. 

The case of Augustus B. Hall was, at the time of my last 
report, in the supreme court for the decision of questions of 
law arising on the nonsuit of the plaintifi" by the superior 
court. The supreme court had this case under consideration 
for a long time. Finally a majority of the court, three out of 
five, decided the questions involved in favor of the city. The 
plaintifi' immediately moved for a rehearing of the case, but 
the court denied this motion. At the October term, 1902, of 
the superior court judgment was entered in this case for the 
ciiy for costs. 

The cases of the Concord Street Railway and Joseph Stick- 
ney are still on the docket. 



REPORT OF CITY SOLICITOR. 465 

At the October term, 1901, of the superior court a suit was 
entered by the Union School District of Concord against Dis- 
trict No. 20 of Concord, for the recovery of tuitions of schol- 
ars residing in District No. 20 and attending the high school 
in the Union School District. District No. 20 defended on 
the groinul that under a law passed by the legislature in 1901 
these tuitions should he paid by the cit}^ of Concord. I 
entered my appearance for Concord and took the , position 
that the city was not liable for these tuitions. The case was 
transferred to the supreme court. I filed a brief in this case. 
The supreme court decided that these tuitions should be paid 
bv District No. 20, thus relieving the city. 

During the year suits have been brought against the city 
bv the following parties : James W. Lane and Lyman H. 
Lane, Josepii Stickney, Mary E. Wilder, and Charles S. 
Parker et ah. 

The suit of James W. Lane and Lyman H.'.Lane was an 
appeal from the award by the board of aldermen of damages 
for land taken for the construction of a sewer. This aj^peal 
was not taken within the time allowed by law, and upon sug- 
gestion of this fact the suit was dismissed by the plaintifl's' 
attorneys. 

The suit of Joseph Stickney is still pending, and is for the 
abatement of a portion of his taxes for the year 1901. 

The suit of Mary E. Wilder is for the recovery of damages 
for personal injuries sustained by the plaintiff while travelino- 
on Spring street in Penacook, by reason of an alleged defect 
in said street. The plaintiff was traveling on Spring street 
after dark and fell into a ditch which the owner of the adjoin^ 
ing premises had dug across the sidewalk that afternoon for 
the purpose of relaying his sewer pipe. This case came on 
for trial by jury at the October term of the superior court. 
At the close of the plaintiff's opening statement I moved that 
the plaintiff be non-suited. The motion was granted, and 
the plaintiff excepted. The case was transferred to the 
supreme court, and is in order for argument at the March 
term, 1903. If the decision of the supreme court sustains-

466 CITY OF CONCORD. 

the ruling of the judge in the court below, judgment will be 
entered for the city. If the supreme court decides that the 
non-suit was improperly granted, the case will go back to 
the superior court for trial. 

The suit of Charles 'S. Parker et ah. was a bill in equity 
praying for an injunction to restrain the city, its officers, and 
the building committee from proceeding with the erection of 
the proposed new city hall building. Upon the filing of this 
bill I appeared and agreed to the issuance of a temporary 
injunction until the case could betried. The case was tried 
at the April term, 1903, of the superior court. The superior 
court, after a full and lengthy hearing, decided the material 
matters at issue in favor of the city and dissolved the tempo- 
rary injunction. The plaintiffs excepted and the case was 
transferred to the supreme court with the greater part of the 
evidence. Briefs were filed and the case was argued at length 
at a special session of the supreme court in June. The excep- 
tions of the plaintiffs were overruled and a decision was 
announced by the supreme court, fully sustaining the city and 
the building committee in the steps already taken with refer- 
ence to the proposed new city hall building, and removing 
all question of the right of the city and the building commit- 
tee to proceed with the erection of this building. At the last 
term of the superior court a hearing was had on the question 
of costs, and judgment was rendered in favor of the city, the 
amount to be determined by the clerk. This case occupied 
the greater part of my time for three months. 

I have during the year prosecuted many criminal cases for 
the police department before the police court. I have also as 
usual given advice and assistance when required to the vari- 
ous departments of the city government and to committees 
and members of the city council. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDMUND S. COOK, 

City Solicitor.
