MAYOR FRENCH'S INAUGURAL 
ADDRESS. 

January 26, 1909. 



Gentlemen of the City Council: 

In assuming the duties of mayor, at the beginning of a 
new municipal term, I follow the custom of the able men 
who have preceded me in office, and submit in writing some 
views and recommendations for your consideration. I fully 
appreciate the responsibility of the office and realize that 
without your help my usefulness can be greatly impaired. 

It is well not to forget that we are the city's servants, 
and the city and its citizens are not our servants ; that an 
indifferent attention to the business affairs of the city will 
produce only indifferent results; that the city demands a 
thorough business administration economically managed, 
as a good business man manages his private business, being 
as careful as if we were working for ourselves and spend- 
ing our own money, instead of the money of others. By 
keeping these sentiments in mind and forgetting the fact 
that we belong to two great political parties, we can then 
render a good account of our stewardship. • 

The city pays interest on more than one million dollars 
of bonded indebtedness. The assessed value of the city for 
the year 1908 was $12,342,690, or the bonded indebtedness 
is about one-twelfth of the assessed value of its property. 
The bonded indebtedness should not be increased unless for 
some purpose which cannot be delayed, or for some unfore- 
seen cause not now apparent. The tax rate of $23 per 



4 CITY OF CONCORD. 

thousand dollars, for the year 1908, is higher than should 
obtain, and a rate of $20 per thousand should not be 
exceeded, but from present conditions in which the city 
is placed, no hope exists to reduce the rate to that figure, 
conditions and circumstances for which we are not re- 
sponsible. 



I recommend the passage of an ordinance fixing the pay 
of able-bodied day-laborers employed by the city at $1.75 
per day of nine hours ; that skilled workmen be paid union 
wages in their several trades; that all city work be done 
and performed by American citizens or by men who have 
declared their intention in good faith to become a citizen 
as provided by law. 

CONTRACTS. 

I recommend that all concrete and cement work for the 
city be let to the lowest responsible bidder; that all other 
contracts of any importance should also be let to the low- 
est responsible bidder. 

(There should be no question raised against these propo- 
sitions.) 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

No city of the size of Concord has a better fire depart- 
ment. The personnel of the department cannot be easily 
improved. From the chief down, the men are steady, 
honest, faithful and competent, and all can rest assured of 
an efficient discharge of their duties. In this department, 
the city gets the worth of its money. 

Soon there should be improve ots made at the Central 

station on Warren street; tlie stalls for the horses should 
he changed to the rear of the apparatus, in order to guard 



MAYOR S ADDRESS. 

against accidents at alarms, and for a speedy response to 
calls. Delay is now occasioned by reason of the horses 
being in a wing at one end of the station. Such delay may 
at any time be the cause of a great conflagration. This 
change will necessitate additional land in the rear of the 
station and some expense in building the addition for the 



The great growth of the city south of West and Clinton 
streets will, in the near future, call for better fire protec- 
tion in that locality. This may not be necessary during the 
present municipal term. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

The law establishing a police commission for the city of 
Concord deprived it of the right to appoint its police 
officers, although since the existence of this commission 
good men, as a rule, have been selected for police officers. 
I am opposed to this manner of selecting them. The police 
officers should be chosen by the city council the same as 
other officers, and be subject to removal by it for sufficient 
reason. A department of such importance to the good 
order of the city should be under the control of the city. 
A police commission appointed by the governor of the state 
is wholly outside of the control of the city, and the 
city has no control over its police officers. It comes 
to this, that our police are state, not municipal offi- 
cers, subject not to the orders or control of the city. 

This criticism of the manner of the appointing of the 
police does not extend to the men themselves. I am happy 
to say that as a body our police are good, efficient men. 

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. 

I regret that I cannot speak with the same praise for this 
department which I can for others. It appears that the 
amount of money expended does not return its full benefit. 



6 CITY OP CONCORD. 

The highways extending from the city do not compare 
favorably with the highways with which they connect at 
adjoining towns. It is common observation that the adjoin- 
ing towns have better roads than the connecting roads from 
the city. The public on our country roads drive through 
the same mud holes and over the same rocks, fast and 
loose, for years, and should one of either be missed, it would 
excite comment. It is an easy matter to tell where the 
town lines cross the roads by the difference in the surface 
of them. It is no uncommon thing in late years to have 
expensive paving which has been down only a few years, 
and which would wear a century, taken up and another 
surface laid down. Stones are hauled to the stone-crusher 
instead of the stone-crusher being installed at the quarry 
dumps. Macadam is laid thin, so thin that the heavy 
teaming over it in a few years wholly destroys it, and the 
surface once macadamized becomes half rock and half dirt, 
not so good as a hard gravel surface. 

Streets are sprinkled once a day only, in some localities 
in the city. These streets are quickly dried and no benefit 
comes to the adjoining owner; about the only practical 
good which can come from sprinkling the streets is over 
the streets through which the street cars run and the main 
business streets; the money expended outside of these lo- 
calities is substantially thrown away. The railroad operat- 
ing through our streets should oil the ground over which 
their tracks run and for a sufficient distance on each side, 
so that a cloud of dust could not be raised every fifteen 
minutes, to be drifted into the adjoining houses, making 
an unnecessary nuisance. 

In the hands of a competent man, much improvement 
• •mild be made in our streets and highways with no greater 
outlay of money, and such competent man should devote 
his whole time to the city service. 



MAYOR S ADDRESS. < 

SOLDIERS' RELIEF. 

Those who fought and won the battle for the emancipa- 
tion of a race from chattel slavery deserve the most 
generous treatment, and I trust all that is possible in this 
direction will be freely done, and I trust that when a case 
of this nature presents itself to our overseers of the poor, 
it will receive prompt attention. 

LIGHTING STREETS. 

Well-lighted streets are a necessity for the safety and 
convenience of the public, and it is unfortunate that the 
city is dependent on one company for its electric lights, 
and I welcome any other company which might apply for 
a license to enter the city. No lights now established can be 
dispensed with and more must be installed, and under 
present circumstances the appropriation for this purpose 
will steadily increase, while if a reasonable price could be 
secured, a much better service could be had without addi- 
tional expense. 

TAXATION. 

Every citizen should bear his just proportion of the pub- 
lic tax. Whether this is done or not depends greatly on the 
courage and efficiency of the board of assessors. This 
board, composed of nine members, one from each ward, 
have wofully neglected their duties. Many stocks of goods 
are not taxed for more than one-third of their actual value, 
none as a rule taxed as high in proportion as real estate. 
Much real estate is not taxed in proportion to its value 
with other real estate ; money, bank stock, bonds, mortgage 
and other securities, escape from taxation almost wholly, 
casting an unequal and unjust burden upon other property 
which is in sight. This evading of taxation is partly se- 
cured by borrowing money just before the first day of 



8 CITY OF CONCORD. 

April for the very purpose of avoiding being taxed, partly 
by false inventories, and greatly assisted by the lack of 
courage on the part of the board of assessors and by 
favoritism. 

I recommend to the new board of assessors that they 
fearlessly perform their important duty, and theirs shall be 
the glory and praise evermore. 

WATER DEPARTMENT. 

This department is in first-class condition. There have 
been laid about fifty-three miles of cast-iron pipes. There 
remain about thirteen miles of cement-lined pipe to be re- 
placed. Soon the old pipe will all be replaced and the 
expense of maintaining the system reduced greatly ; at 
that time there will annually remain a large sum to apply 
towards the payment of the water bonds. Much work has 
been done to clean up the shores of Penacook Lake and to 
preserve the water from pollution. It has been customary, 
for years, with the exception of one municipal term, to 
appropriate the sum of six thousand dollars for this de- 
partment, and it is called an appropriation for hydrant 
service. This money is paid to the water board, and car- 
ried by them as an income from the system. In view of 
the prosperous condition of this department, I recommend 
the discontinuance of this appropriation ; nothing is gained 
by it in any view, it is taking money from one hand and 
placing it in the other, a scheme of raising revenue hard to 
understand. 



The expense incurred by the maintenance of the several 
parks is money well spent, especially for White's, Rollins' 
.•Hid Penacook Parks. These three are open at all times to 
Mir public, and give a chance for young and old to get the 



MAYOR'S ADDRESS. » 

fresh air and the comforts of good shade; they make suita- 
ble and accessible places for the young to play in and are 
much needed. All reasonable facilities should be furnished 
in all the parks for the accommodation of the public, and 
they should continue to be kept in the present good 
condition. 

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

The benefits to be derived from a good public library 
cannot be discounted. Such a one we have. The manage- 
ment is good, and the appropriations heretofore made ap- 
pear to be sufficient. No necessity now exists for an 
enlargement of the present library building or the purchase 
of additional land or buildings. No additional burden 
should be placed upon the tax-payers for the library. 

HOSPITALS. 

It has been customary for years to make an annual ap- 
propriation for the Margaret Pillsbury General Hospital 
of $3,000. I suppose this sum is given partly as a gift and 
partly to pay for the care of needy persons sent there by 
the city, who in their distress are unable to provide for 
their owti care; this is well. From many reliable sources 
come complaints of neglect of various kinds, towards un- 
fortunate people who have to be carried there. In view 
of the fact that the city contributed generously towards the 
support of this institution. I feel warranted in suggesting 
that the cause of complaints be removed. 

On South Street is located the Memorial Hospital for 
Women and Children, an institution organized some years 
later than the Margaret Pillsbury General Hospital. From 
reputation this hospital is well managed and deserving of 
help. 

If the same amount is appropriated for the support of 
hospitals the present year as in past years, I recommend 



10 CITY OF CONCORD. 

thai one-third thereof be donated to the Memorial Hospital. 
The amount appropriated, if any, for the hospitals, should 
he a credit to the city, on account of any dependent per- 
sons who may be sent there by the city, and no charge 
should be made for such dependent persons until the 
appropriation is exhausted. 

BOARD OF HEALTH. 

We all recognize the importance of this branch of the 
city government and its efficient management, but I con- 
sider the expense at the present time of this branch more 
than is necessary. It appears that the health officer has 
sufficient time to attend to the duties of this office and 
should not require the assistance of a clerk. Such reports 
and records as are made and kept in his office surely can 
be done by himself, and I recommend a curtailment of 
expense in this office. 

OTHER DEPARTMENTS. 

I shall submit to you in relation to these and the depart- 
ments that I have specifically mentioned such other recom- 
mendations as occasion requires. 

SECRET SESSIONS. 

I am at a loss for a reason why any of the public busi- 
ness of the city should be done behind closed doors, in 
secret sessions. This practice savors of some unhealthy 
condition in the public service, the very thing of which the 
public should be thoroughly informed. I know of no secret 
business to be done for the city. The public should be ad- 
mitted, if it chooses to attend, to all meetings of the city 
government or to any investigations. The city fathers' 
lights should not be hid, and a record should be kept of 
their voles on important subjects. 



.MAYOR S ADDRESS. 



SUSPENSION OF THE RTJLES. 



1 1 



It has been a custom of late to pass important ordinances, 
resolutions and other matters under the suspension of the 
rules. I hold that all matters of importance should be 
referred to the proper committees, properly considered, 
opposed if necessary, and passed or rejected in the usual 
manner after due deliberation. 

CITY CHARTER. 

There are many important changes which could be made 
in the city charter; as time passes old ways and methods 
once sufficient become unnecessary or inadequate. I sug- 
gest the following as some of the changes : 

The abolition of the city council. 

The abolition of the police commission. 

The control of the police department by the city. 

The election of street commissioner by the people. 

The adoption of the initiative and referendum. 

The granting of franchises for a consideration, no more 
free gifts of valuable rights. 

The right to regulate the charges of such public service 
corporations, such as gas, electric light and telephone 
companies. 

PROGRESS. 

I recommend the placing of the least possible number of 
poles in the public streets, for the support of wires ; the 
placing of all wires in conduits under ground ; the pro- 
tection of shade trees from injury by wires; a more thor- 
ough method or way. of making permanent repairs on 
highways ; the scaling down of salaries to a fair compensa- 
tion for the services rendered, taking into account the 
ability of the public servants. 

In conclusion, I ask for your faithful co-operation in con- 



12 CITY OF CONCORD. 

ducting the business of the city, without fear, prejudice or 
jealousy. The majority of the votes of the city have placed 
its management in our hands, trusting in our honesty, 
expecting a good business administration, not expecting us 
to perform impossibilities, or correct mistakes long since 
made, but to carry things with an even, steady hand, profit- 
ing by the experience of the past and doing our plain duty. 
I would urge upon you the importance of careful and con- 
scientious effort during your term of office. Into your 
hands have been entrusted the management of the affairs 
of this municipality. Time, patience and fidelity will be 
demanded in the performance of your duties. You will 
doubtless disagree on many questions, but however widely 
you may differ you should not forget that the eyes of the 
world are upon you. When you leave this hall, you will 
go out as public servants sworn to the faithful performance 
of the trust reposed in you by the people. Let it not be 
said that you failed in your duty to your fellow citizens, to 
yourselves and to humanity.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OF UNION 

SCHOOL DISTRICT, FOR YEAR ENDING 

MARCH 31, 1909. 



To the Inhabitants of Union School District: 

The annual report of the Board of Education for the 
school year closing March 31, 1909, is respectfully sub- 
mitted. 

In our efforts to hold our schools to the high standard 
of former years, and to make such advancement as was 
possible, we feel that we have had the hearty support of 
all interested, — superintendent, teachers, scholars, parents 
and citizens generally. Such improvements in buildings 
and equipment as were possible under the usual appropria- 
tions have been made, and deterioration of the property in 
our charge has been prevented to the best of our ability. 
The misfortune attendant upon the partial destruction by 
fire of the Franklin-street schoolhouse tested the efficiency 
of our school organization, but the regular routine of work 
was scarcely disturbed and it is a pleasure to be able to 
report that no loss to the children of opportunity to pursue 
their studies under favorable conditions, or to the district 
in a pecuniary sense, resulted. The insurance received was 
more than sufficient to completely repair the building and 
to improve it by the substitution of slate blackboards and 
the addition of a substantial iron fire-escape. Of the in- 
surance received, a balance of $571.04 remains unexpended. 
So far as our schools in general are concerned, we are confi- 
dent that little is now lacking in buildings, equipment, super- 
vision, or sufficiency and efficiency of the teaching force. We 
would make an exception, however, concerning the Highschool. 
Notwithstanding its efficiency, certain needs are apparent. 

5 



66 CITY OF CONCORD. 

In a school of its size, which is increasing steadily from 
year to year, a much closer supervision by the principal 
than is now possible with the present teaching staff is abso- 
lutely demanded. This, together -with the large amount of 
clerical work devolving upon the principal, should engage 
his entire attention and relieve him of the personal care of 
classes. Hence, in order to approach the maximum in point 
of discipline and efficient instruction, another male assist- 
ant should be added to the teaching force, that the in- 
creased demands for the coming year may be properly met. 

In only two respects have radical departures been made 
from the former general policy of the board. During the 
year a new schedule of pay for teachers has been adopted. 
The minimum salary of all teachers is now $300 a year, 
with $550 as the maximum in the grades below the Parker 
school and above the kindergarten. The increase from 
minimum to maximum takes place 'automatically and all 
teachers now stand and fare alike as regards salaries. 
The new schedule assures living wages to the beginners 
and a maximum salary to the experienced teachers which 
is larger than that paid by most cities of our size. The 
purpose of the change was to establish a definite system of 
compensation and to make continuance in the service of 
the district wholly a matter of competency. A year's ex- 
perience seems fully to have justified expectations in these 
regards. 

Some years ago, during an epidemic of scarlet fever, the 
local Board of Health with the hearty co-operation of the 
Board of Education, conducted for a short time <a daily 
inspection of all the scholars in the district and thereby 
undoubtedly limited the spread of the disease without in- 
terfering with the continuance of the schools. This was 
probably the inauguration of medical inspection of public 
schools in New Hampshire. Although the results demon- 
strated its value >as a fixture in the routine of school life, 
nothing further along those lines, save a few spasmodic 



SCHOOL REPORT. 67 

efforts during the prevalence of some contagious disease, 
has been attempted until this year, when the very generous 
offer of the local District Nursing Association, to give the 
services of their head nurse for a period of three months 
to make a systematic examination of the children, 'was 
gratefully accepted by our board. The nurse is now 
actively engaged in the work, which is proving beyond 
question the necessity of a closer oversight of the physical 
condition of that large body of children under our care. 
In the early, tender years are laid the foundations for the 
future, and it becomes us to see to it that through no fault 
of ours are the opportunities of youth lost. It is essen- 
tially our duty to provide spacious rooms, well lighted and 
properly ventilated; it is equally our duty to protect the 
child as far as possible against all tendencies, inherited or 
acquired, that may undermine his physical and mental re- 
sources. Defective vision or impaired hearing alone may 
sadly interfere with his progress at study and stamp him 
as one below the average in ability; remove the disability 
by appropriate treatment and he may assert himself a 
leader. Many of the defects of childhood are easily de- 
tected and the proper remedies ,as easily suggested. There 
is an urgent demand at the present time for an intelligent 
supervision of the children in the schoolroom that a sound 
mind and a sound body may be the lot of all. 
Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT. 



To the Board of Education of Union School District :

briefly with matters which have transpired during the last 
year and with suggestions calculated to make the public 
schools more efficient.

Totals 200 104 . 96 

Net decrease 96 

A comparison of the total enrollments for the past five 
years shows an average annual decrease of about six pupils, 
most noticeable in the lowest grades and due principally 
to new parochial schools and to loss of population on account 
of business depression. 

West Concord, East Concord, and the Plains have shown 
losses as well as the northern part of the district proper, 
the last being ascribed to the establishment of parochial 
schools in that section. One room was discontinued in the 



SCHOOL REPORT. 71 

Walker building and one in the Harriet P. Dame building 
at the beginning o-f the fall term, and from present indica- 
tions another room will be dispensed with in the northern 
section during the coming year. 

No additional building construction need be thought of 
at present and none will be required soon unless conditions 
rapidly change. 

In the high school the enrollment is steadily increasing, 
the maximum of four hundred and fifty-seven in the fall 
term being the largest number of pupils ever recorded in 
its history. It is quite interesting to note the result of the 
estimate which was asked of me and submitted to the build- 
ing committee in 1905. 

From the following tabulated comparison it may be seen 
that the estimate was a little too high, but inasmuch as dur- 
ing that period the Holden mills have been removed entirely 
from West Concord, the shoe factory burned, and the coun- 
try disturbed by business depression, it was quite close.

There are two hundred five pupils enrolled in the 
graduating classes of the grammar schools. Allowing sev- 
enty per cent, of these to enter the High school next fall, 
it is safe to say that with the usual additions, the fresh- 
man class will contain one hundred sixty members, which 
signifies an enrollment of nearly if not quite five hundred 
in the High school. Very likely this will be the most seri- 
ous problem of school attendance next year. 

In the Parker school an increase of twenty pupils over 
the attendance of 1907 is shown. 



72 CITY OF CONCORD. 

The Franklin school building was burned on the night of 
November 16, 1908. The pupils left without accommoda- 
tions were housed as follows: The largest number were 
assigned to the Walker school, where an unused room was 
called into requisition. The others were sent to the follow- 
ing buildings : Tahanto, Merrimack, Dewey, Kimball. 

High School. 

The teaching force of this school remains the same as last 
year with two exceptions. Miss Bentley, who had a power- 
ful influence in raising the standard of the school in work 
and in the uplift of student character, was called to a more 
desirable position in Boston and Miss Margaret L. Burns 
was chosen to fill the vacancy. The number of pupils hav- 
ing increased, Miss Helen A. Drake was selected as an ad- 
ditional teacher. Fifty-four students graduated last June, 
thirteen entering college and six, professional schools. Two 
more intend entering college next fall. The large attend- 
ance has tested the seating capacity of the building and the 
inevitable increase of next year must be met by expedients 
in utilizing the different laboratories and the lecture-room 
for additional seating space, thus causing considerable extra 
expense in the purchase of new desks. 

But little change has been made in the course of study, the 
most important being the introduction of Political Economy, 
and Banking and Finance into the Commercial Course. 

It was found that the two periods a week electives in 
drawing, sewing, cooking, wood and iron work, would have 
to be made entirely outside of the regular school time. It 
has been impossible on this account for many who wished 
to take these subjects to do so because they could not make 
the five periods a week in other subjects. I suggest that 
military drill be made optional, thereby allowing a just pro- 
portion of school time to the pupils of the Mechanic Arts 
course and others who wish to take manual training. 



SCHOOL REPORT. 



73 



One hundred seventeen additional 'books have been 
purchased for the library. If there could be an annual 
expenditure for this purpose, in a few years the library 
would be fully equipped. The art exhibit by the Horace 
K. Turner Co., last spring, netted the school about sixty 
dollars which, with five dollars from the prize speaking 
fund, was expended for framed pictures, thereby lessening 
the barren appearance of the interior of the building to 
some extent, but much remains to be done. Some large 
pieces of statuary are needed for the corridors. This is a, 
matter of no small importance because the effect of works 
of art in every form becomes apparent in the elevation, cul- 
ture and refinement of the pupils. 

The increased size of the school makes administration 
correspondingly difficult. The demands made upon the 
principal's executive strength multiply year by year with 
the growing numbers and are too little appreciated and un- 
derstood by those not conversant with the conditions. 
Problems in discipline, upon which the success of any school 
largely depends, arise and cannot be solved as well as they 
could be if the principal's time were not taken up by so 
many recitation periods. 

Whatever advantage may accrue from personal contact 
with the pupils in the recitation room will be more than 
offset by a more careful attention to problems of adminis- 
tration. 

Training School. 

, There are six student teachers in the training school, five 
of whom graduate next June. The entering class of next 
fall promises to be quite large. In view of the fact that the 
present training course is of two years' duration, a certifi- 
cate of graduation from the first two courses in our High 
school ought to be regarded as a sufficiently high require- 
ment for admission to the training classes and the present 



74 CITY OF CONCORD. 

requirement of an average of seventy-five per cent, for four 
years should be discontinued. The standard of the school 
is high enough so that the graduates find little difficulty in 
securing employment. Two of the last graduating class 
are now teaching in this district. 

In response to a popular demand for forenoon sessions in 
the kindergarten, it was found necessary to consolidate four 
rooms into three and adopt a departmental plan of teaching 
in the six highest classes. This has met with some success 
but it has its serious disadvantages and ought to be the 
subject of much more careful consideration before being 
adopted as a fixed plan. The work of the school was well 
shown on the Parents' Day in the winter term. 

Parker School. 

The Parker school has repeated its success of last year. 
The increased attendance caused the employment of an ad- 
ditional teacher so that the teaching force now numbers six. 
The usual Parents' Night was observed on the last night 
of the fall term. The first half was devoted to regular 
recitations in the various branches, including an exposition 
of the work in drawing, cooking, sewing and -wood-work. 
The last half was given to music, calisthenics and the dram- 
atization of Dicken's Christmas Carol, the characters being 
taken by the pupils of the school. The affair was an 
unqualified success and a very large number of citizens 
were present. 

On September 28, 1908, the school was presented with a 
Lincoln Memorial tablet by Mary M. Shute, in memory of 
her husband, Lieut. Charles Henry Shute; and a photo- 
gravure of Lincoln, by Anna Eliza Andrews and Isaac 
Bruce Shute, in memory of Lieut. George Moses Shute. 
Both these officers were members of Company B, of the 
Second Regiment of New Hampshire Infantry. 

This was made a public event, the local Post of the Grand 



SCHOOL REPORT. 75 

Army of the Republic being present in a body and many 
others attending. The programme may be found in the ap- 
pendix to this report. 

The conduct of this school is based upon strict application 
to school duties, to the minimizing of outside attractions as 
a menace to the pupil's best interests, and a wholesome disci- 
pline, all as vital elements of success in school work. The char- 
acteristics of the pupil are carefully noted and he is taught 
as an individual as far and as carefully as conditions allow. 
The parents are kept informed of their children's progress by 
frequent written reports and by personal consultations with 
the teachers. The attainments of those pupils who apply 
themselves faithfully to their work are positive and gratify- 
ing, the course of study is modern in its formation and 
application, and between eighty and ninety per cent, grad- 
uate well fitted for the succeeding High school require- 
ments. 

Manual Training. 

wood and iron. 

The facilities for manual training have been increased by 
the addition of new benches, a shaper, two new forges and 
the employment of an additional instructor. This has en- 
abled us to double the amount of work done by the grammar 
classes heretofore, and also allowed the introduction of a 
course in forging. The Mechanic Arts course has now both 
a freshman and a sophomore class taking the full number 
of hours required. Wood-work has been modified slightly 
by dropping whittling and by changing certain unsatisfac- 
tory models for more useful and attractive ones. There has 
been co-operation between this department and that of 
drawing in the matter of applied design and the intention 
of the instructors to more closely connect the two depart- 
ments is a worthy one. In the High school the freshman 



76 CITY OP CONCORD. 

class has model work suited to previous training, the sopho- 
more class has wood-turning, pattern-making, and forging 
based upon the course in the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, and the junior and senior classes take machine- 
shop practice. In freehand drawing the class M work has 
been given up. The freshman and sophomore classes have 
the same course as last year. The junior and senior classes 
have additional problems in architecture. 

Probably no more comprehensive course in manual train- 
ing exists in the state than the one here. Mr. Carroll has 
labored and is constantly laboring to make it equal to the 
best as far as conditions will allow. The teaching force is 
capable, the equipment very liberal and quite sufficient. 
To maintain these two essential features has raised the cost 
of the school to a large annual expenditure. The serious 
question now is how to decrease the expense and not impair 
the efficiency of the school. 

Sewing and Cooking. 

The courses in sewing and cooking have remained un- 
changed. On 'account of the jar of the machinery and the 
need of room, these schools were removed from the Morrill 
Manual Training school and located in the Chandler and 
Parker school buildings, respectively. They have been 
granted necessities in the matter of equipment, which have 
long been 'their due. 

Night School. 

This school was successful notwithstanding the attendance 
was only about half as large as that of the previous year. 
The students were interested and the progress was much 
more noticeable than in the larger school of 1907. The 
majority were of foreign birth and confined their efforts 
to reading, writing and spelling. Each successive year there 
is some demand for advanced studies, but the number of 



SCHOOL REPORT.

applicants is not sufficiently large to warrant starting the 
classes. The school this winter will be somewhat larger than 
that of last year in enrollment, but the average attendance 
on account of bad weather will not be quite so well sus- 
tained.

Kindergartens. 

With the change at the Dewey school, all the kinder- 
gartens now have forenoon sessions. No new ones have 
been established during the year, but the standard of work 
has been strengthened. The supervisor and the regular 
teachers have used their best endeavors to keep abreast 
of the times in faithful attention to duty both in teachers' 
meetings and in the class room. It is worthy of note that 
many business men have been present on public days and 
that the hand-work has called forth words of praise from su- 
pervisors in other cities. The accomplishments of the kin- 
dergartens are thoroughly appreciated by the primary 
teachers and the equipment is all that can be desired. 
The attendance has shown a slight increase. 

Drawing. 

At the end of the spring term Miss Grace L. Bell, for 
many years instructor in drawing, resigned her position 
to take a more lucrative one in the High school at Spring- 
field, Mass. The efforts of Miss Bell will be remembered 
here for a long time on account of the steady progress 
maintained year by year and the 'favor with which the 
results of her school work were received by experts. Her 
successor, Miss Faith C. Stalker, of Worcester, Mass., is 
giving conscientious service. An improvement is notice- 
able in the strictly manual work of the lower grades, in 
applied design, and in the reed and raffia work. The new 
course in the High school contemplates advanced drawing 
from models and from life, as well as still life in water 
color. 

Military Drill. 

In the fall Colonel Mason resigned his position as in- 
structor, and at the beginning of the winter term Lieut. 
S. E. Hall was chosen to fill the vacancy. During the

year the cadets have taken part in the annual Field Day,

ship Drill at Boston. Lieutenant Hall reports a renewal 
of interest. 

Music. 

Music is in the hands of a capable instructor and a 
willing corps of teachers. There has been little change of 
method and the pupils are singing more and a better class 
of music than ever before. A girls' glee club of no mean 
ability has been formed in the Parker school and the regu- 
lar work of some of the elementary schools from the view- 
points of tone production and sight reading is to be highly 
commended. Thirty-five minutes a week have been allotted 
music in the High school. Taking into account that the 
chorus numbers two hundred and twenty-five voices it is 
remarkable that in this small time so much has been ac- 
complished. The usual glee club organizations have been 
maintained and on Thursday afternoons informal musi- 
cales have been given in connection with outside talent. 
The annual concert given by the High school chorus was 
highly remunerative and a goodly sum is now on deposit 
for future needs. 

Deficient Pupils. 

From records at hand we find that eighty per cent, of 
the pupils in the elementary schools receive promotion 
twice a year even though the mid-year promotions are very 
strict. The remaining twenty per cent, fail for various 
reasons, some of which follow: 

1. Lack of personal interest Etnd effort, almost always 
the result of faulty home training. 

2. Time lost on -account of sickness. 

3. Too young for the grade. 

4. Forced to remain in school against their will. 



80 CITY OF CONCORD. 

5. Attention taken from school work by outside at- 
tractions. 

6. Mentally deficient. 

Recent investigations by the teachers have revealed the 
following conditions in the elementary schools : 

1. The number of pupils so deficient mentally that they 
would better be in some institution specially adapted for 
such pupils, nine. 

2. Pupils not included under No. 1, who are so much 
below normal in mental capacity as to be unable to make 
much progress and are a hindrance to the rest of the 
class, sixty- three. 

3. Pupils four or more years behind in their school 
work, thirty-five. 

4. Pupils two or more years behind in their school 
work (includes 1, 2, 3), two hundred forty-two. 

For pupils classed under No. 2 a special school would be 
a natural suggestion, but on closer analysis of the report 
we find that the segregation of these pupils presents a 
problem of considerable complexity. Thirteen live in the 
outlying districts. The others live all the way from Call 
Street to Rockingham Street, so that the location of such 
a school would be difficult. Every grade is represented 
from A to M, making an average of about four pupils to 
a class. There aire only enough pupils for one room, but 
one room containing any great number of grades would 
fail of 'accomplishing desired results. Some of the reasons 
why many are from two to four years below grade are: 

1. There are many foreigners who know nothing of 
our language and are consequently slow in beginning. 

2. Others, native born, come from homes where no 
English is spoken and their progress is correspondingly 
slow. 

3. Many come from rural districts where the advan- 
tages are limited, and they are far below grade when they 
enter. 



SCHOOL REPORT.

4. Some being unable to maintain a standing in the 
parochial school come back to the public schools and fail 
of doing the work. 

It is very likely that the ratio of such pupils to the total 
number enrolled is about the same as it has been for a 
number of years, the increase if any being due to the first 
reason named. 

School Hygiene. 

The recent appointment of a committee on hygiene to 
look after the health conditions in the schools is one of 
the greatest importance and will be far reaching in its 
effects. Through the generosity of the District Nursing 
Association the schools are having the services of the district 
nurse for three months free of expense. Miss Moore's 
report for one month, ending February 1, is substantially 
as follows : 

"I was surprised to find the number of children who 
neglected the daily care of the teeth. The heads of all 
the children examined were found to be clean. 

Whole number of pupils examined, 192 

Number found with enlarged tonsils, 66 

Number found with symptoms of adenoids, 28 

Number found with poor teeth. 25 

Number found with defective hearing, 20 
Number found who were in poor physical 

condition, 29 ' ' 

I suggest that the matter of doing away with the com- 
mon drinking cup be given immediate consideration. 

The Elementary Schools. 

The amount and character of the work done in the ele- 
mentary schools has not a little to do with the general up- 
lift of the public school system. For the past year this 



82 CITY OP CONCORD. 

has been accomplished in a quiet but none the less effect- 
ive way, reflecting credit upon the teachers and the pupils 
alike. Especially true has this been of the so-called essen- 
tials as revealed to me by over six hundred official visits, 
frequent tests, and careful comparisons of written re- 
sults. The quality not the quantity of the work counts 
most and largely upon this the efficiency of any school sys- 
tem must depend. Within the year the work has been com- 
mended by persons high in educational authority and the 
records of pupils who have left the city and entered other 
schools offers a convincing argument that elementary 
school work here suffers little by comparison with that of 
other places. 

The teachers have been earnest in their efforts, mani- 
festing a desire for professional progress that promises 
well for the future. At a general meeting in the fall the 
suggestion that the teachers of each building form clubs 
for the purpose of studying pedagogical works was quite 
generally adopted and is sure to render great service to 
the schools. 

Parents' Days have been frequent, the attendance large 
and many have come at these times who would not other- 
wise have done so. The Rules and Regulations provide 
that each teacher may take three half-days each year for 
the purpose of visiting other schools. Many have availed 
themselves of the privilege, but others have not. I can 
suggest nothing better for a teacher than that she visit 
and become acquainted with methods and ways in other 
places. 

On December 4, 1908, the fiftieth anniversary of the 
erection of the Merrimack school building was observed 
with appropriate exercises. This was brought about by the 
forethought of Miss Kimball, principal, and the other 
teachers of the school. Intended only as a simple affair, 
the interest grew so that the alumni assembled in large

numbers to renew old acquaintance and live over again 
the days of yore. 

A trial is now being made of the Palmer system of 
penmanship in class L. At present penmanship in the 
lower grades lacks uniformity and is far from satisfactory. 
From the use of one system only uniformity, at least, can 
be restored. 

I again recommend that the forty-minute test rule be 
abolished as far as it applies to classes L and M, and that 
one hour be allowed the pupils of these grades as a more 
reasonable time to write their tests with sufficient thought 
and care and for relieving an intense strain on the nervous 
sj'stem. 

The usual appropriation for the prize speaking fund 
was applied as follows : Two casts — a Delia Robbia and a 
Bambino — and two group pictures for the Franklin low- 
est primary school, two pictures for the high school, and 
a small amount given toward a picture for the Parker 
school. 

Keeping after school, obnoxious especially when not used 
with the best of judgment, has been the subject of much 
thought this year. The most successful teachers use it on 
only rare occasions — many not at all. It has to lie demon- 
strated that it is educational economy to attempt to force 
something into the brain of the child whose whole attitude 
is repulsive and not receptive. A plan was suggested by 
which the parent was called into partial responsibilit} 7 for 
his child's progress. Two afternoons were set aside each 
week on which pupils could come for additional help after 
school. A slip was sent to the parent notifying him of 
his child's deficiency and offering assistance if he would 
see that the pupil came on the afternoons designated. This 
has worked well in schools where it has been tried and 
relieves the teacher of a part of the responsibility for pro- 
motion which she ought not to assume. 

The general work of the schools has shown sure signs of 



84 CITY OF CONCORD. 

growing strength. Public criticism is offered each year 
and on looking over records for the past forty years I 
judge that it is of about the character and extent that it 
was in times gone by. I regard public criticism as a 
healthy sign and I sincerely hope the time may never 
come when it shall cease, if it is given without animosity, 
personal prejudice, and in a broad, public-spirited way. 
I fail to find anybody officially connected with the affairs 
of this district who does not have the best interests of the 
schools at heart and who spares any pains in trying to 
strengthen the teaching of to-day that it may be a firm 
stepping-stone to future educational progress. With a 
keen appreciation of the aid given me by the board of 
education, the teachers and the citizens of this city, I re- 
spectfully submit this report.

Superintendent.

The receipts show a decrease of one hundred and ninety 
dollars over those of last year. This can be traced to a 
number of causes. There is no doubt but that many pupils 
spend their money for moving picture shows that would 
otherwise be credited to this system. The results from the 
Rumford school show what enthusiastic teachers may ac- 
complish.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OF PEN- 

ACOOK SCHOOL DISTRICT FROfl APRIL 1, 

1908, TO HARCH I, 1909. 



The Board of Education submits herewith the last report 
of educational conditions in Penacook School District, to- 
gether wiHn the report of the superintendent and treasurer. 

At the end of the school year in 1908 the supervisory 
district of Franklin, Penacook and Boscawen was dissolved 
and the Penacook, Boscawen and Hill District was formed 
and George "W. Sumner was elected superintendent. For 
the first time in its history, Penacook has a resident super- 
intendent and the consequent increased efficiency of super- 
vision has been apparent in many ways, chief among which 
is the unification of the Boscawen and Penacook school sys- 
tems. The unity of the teaching force has been better pre- 
served than ever before and we believe that good work is 
being done in every department and in every school. 

The lengthened period of school life for the great ma- 
jority of the children is the most notable thing in our 
educational progress. The High School has the same effi- 
cient corps of teachers as last year and began the year 
with an enrollment of seventy-eight pupils. One hundred 
per cent, of the grammar graduates took up High School 
work and an equally good record is expected this year. 

Three caribon prints have been added to the collection 
in the Charles Street building from the proceeds of the 
school entertainment held during the past year, and it is 
hoped that the policy of beautifying the interior of all our 
school buildings will be continued under the new adminis- 
tration. 

There 'has (been some criticism of the persistent effort to 



140 CITY OF CONCORD. 

maintain universal regular attendance at school during 
such hours as the law requires. The policy of the board 
has been to secure the largest possible regular attendance and 
to reduce as much as possible the tardiness and the number 
of excuses and other irregularities. The thoroughness, tact 
and albility of the truant officer deserves especial com- 
mendation in this connection. Is it too much to ask that all 
fair-minded, patriotic citizens and parents of this district 
should co-operate with us in the effort to build up and 
maintain a high standard of school attendance? 

For several years there has been a steadily growing senti- 
ment that the schools in the village of Penacook should be 
united under one administration. The first public step 
toward this condition was taken two years ago when the 
western part of the village, known as the Borough District, 
was united with School District No. 20, to form the Pena- 
cook School District. The final step was taken during the 
past year when the Board of Education of Boscawen School 
District, No. 7, cooperating with this board, agreed upon 
• the terms of union and drew a bill to create the Penacook 
Union School District which was passed by the legislature 
and took effect March 1, 1909. 

We believe that this is the most important step that 
Penacook has ever taken in educational matters and that 
it will prove an ideal condition if the parents will co- 
operate -with the Board of Education to make it a union 
of spirit and purpose as well as a union in name.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



Penacook, N. H., February 20, 1909. 

To the Board of Education: 

The recent action of the legislature makes it safe to as- 
sume that, on the first of March, District No. 20 will become 
one of the parts of the new Penacook Union School District. 
This report, then, the eighth in the series of superintend- 
ent's reports, is also the last. 

The occasion would be a fitting one for a somewhat de- 
tailed report concerning the progress of the schools since 
the establishment of the district, but time is lacking for 
such an undertaking now. A report addressed to a part, 
only, of the district that is to carry forward the work 
of the schools is not the place for recommendations or a 
discussion of policies for the future. This report, there- 
fore, will be very brief. 

I believe, however, that it would be of great interest to 
the members of the larger body politic about to be organ- 
ized, to know something of the history of its two constitu- 
ent parts. A recent perusal of the reports of the two dis- 
tricts has made me strongly suspect that there are local 
school traditions which we cannot afford to allow to be 
forgotten. The two school systems in the village of Pena- 
cook have not attained their present standard of excellence 
without self-sacrificing effort and a high, if commonplace, 
type of every-day heroism on the part of many teachers, 
board in embers and others, whom it would be well for this 
and the coming generation to remember. Permit me to 
recommend that, at an early date, a report be prepared 
addressed to the citizens of Penacook Union iSchool Dis- 
trict, containing an outline of the policy had in mind by 
the new board of education and citing the main points of 



142 CITY OP CONCORD. 

interest in the history of District No. 7 and District No. 20. 
Such a report would he of especial value if the history 
could he presented in part from the biographical stand- 
point and in a style appealing to youth. Young America 
can hardly he said to value overmuch its legacy from the 
past. Is it too much to hope that a knowledge of how much 
the present school system has cost, might lead some boy 
or girl to value to-day's privileges more and use them to 
better purpose ? 

Seven of last year's teachers have been retained and four 
new teachers employed this year. Each of the new teachers 
had carefully prepared for the work of teaching, either in 
normal school, training school or college, and had taught 
a year or more. It has seemed to me that every employee 
of the district, including teachers, supervisor of music and 
truant officer, has (been doing painstaking, faithful work. 
Such a spirit as the teachers manifest, when complemented 
by a careful organization, cannot fail to secure the results 
for which you are looking. Thus far it has seemed im- 
possible to arrange for teachers' meetings. The articula- 
tion of the system has heen somewhat less perfect because 
this opportunity for free interchange of ideas has been 
lacking. 

In purchasing text-books and supplies, an honest attempt 
has been made to remember the needs of the grades while 
providing a considerable quantity of new books, w r hich were 
absolutely necessary, for the high school. 

The continued growth of the high school is most gratify- 
ing. The arrangement of the courses is such that the em- 
ployment of a fourth teacher cannot be longer delayed 
without narrowing its field of work or lessening its effi- 
ciency. 

Respectfully, 

GEORGE W. SUMNER, 

Superintendent.

TOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT OF CONCORD. 



SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT, 1908=1909. 



To the School Board of Concord Town District: 

I herewith submit my second annual report as superin- 
tendent of schools of the Town District of Concord. 

The moving principle of all school work must be the 
preparation of our boys and girls for citizenship. The 
teaching of the various subjects of the school curriculum 
is for the purpose of giving a mental equipment that will 
enable a boy or girl to grasp life's problems with vigor- 
ous honesty and courage. 

This thought I have kept constantly before my own 
mind, and have striven to keep it always before the minds 
of the teachers. With this db-ject in view there is the ab- 
solute necessity for the honest performance of each day's 
tasks and duties. The acceptance of slovenly, or half-done 
work will quickly establish a habit that will prove a seri- 
ous handicap to a child through life. Between teacher 
and pupil there must be entire honesty, frankness and fair- 
dealing. 

The teacher who comes before her classes unprepared in 
her part of the work, will find herself compelled to work 
always with pupils who fail to prepare their work. Or if 
her own work is not carried on with vigor, her pupils will 
never put energy in the doing of their work. If the 
teacher permits things to drift along without definite plan 
and preparation, the children quickly catch the spirit and 
their work will be aimless and without results. 

Hence throughout the year I have had teachers work to 
a daily programme, guide their work by the state pro- 



152 CITY OF CONCORD. 

gramme of studies, require clean, well-prepared work. 
and further, to do their own work with at least a fair degree 
of vigor. 

This has resulted in greater mental activity, and there- 
fore better work and better habits of work on the part of 
the pupils. 

But the schools must not be permitted to assume all 
rights or duties of establishing right habits in the children. 
The chief part of this work rightly belongs to the home 
and cannot be delegated to or assumed by the school. The 
home and the school must co-operate for the best interests 
of the child. 

If there is a spirit of fault-finding or unfriendly criti- 
cism on the part of either towards the other the effect 
upon the children is disastrous. If the daily happenings 
of the schoolroom are carried home and misinterpreted 
and discussed in the presence of the children, for them the 
usefulness of the school is impaired if not utterly destroyed 
and they are thus defrauded of their natural rights. 

Or if a teacher is so injudicious as to speak slightingly 
of the town, or of the people or the children among whom 
shi is working, she thereby throws away her chance of 
doing her hest work for these children. 

Injudicious criticism of teacher by parent, or of parent 
by teacher, tends to destroy in the child that respect for 
authority, and that confidence in his natural guardians and 
mental guides, which constitute two of the chief factors 
which make for good citizenship. 

Unless parent and teacher work together in a friendly 
way for the proper training of the children, good results 
are impossible. 

And may I here speak a word in behalf of the teacher? 
Her position is an exceedingly difficult one. She is usu- 
ally a young girl, away from home and thrown among 
entire strangers, and this at a time in her life when she 
especially needs a mother's care and advice. It is very 



SCHOOL REPORT. 153 

likely that she is homesick and taxed to the utmost of her 
ability by her work. She is nervous and sensitive to the 
slightest word or glance that seems to her to indicate a 
criticism of her work, and the burden of this work has 
begun to weigh upon her and to almost crush her. 

In the schoolroom she must have an unlimited fund of 
tact. She must be firm enough to control the restless, 
gentle enough to win the timid, calm enough to restrain 
the boisterous, animated enough to encourage the bashful 
and diffident; and these are only the incidental qualifica- 
tions which she must have. Essentially, she must be a 
teacher — capable of imparting all kinds of knowledge and 
training to all kinds of children. Put yourself in her 
place before criticising her too severely. 

The work in all the schools is being brought closer to the 
programme of studies, and is being more closely graded so 
that practically the same work is being done in correspond- 
ing grades in all schools. This working to a programme 
of studies and the grading in accordance with it, means a 
very great saving in time. Without it pupils were fre- 
quently taken over the same subject or parts of a subject 
again and again, while other subjects of equal importance 
were slighted or entirely neglected as their supposed im- 
portance or unimportance appealed to a particular teacher, 
or it might be as her knowledge of the subjects permitted. 

The work is being adapted to the age of the pupils. A 
child can learn the mechanics of reading better before he is 
eight years old than he can later. The essentials of lan- 
guage and the fundamental operations of arithmetic can 
be best learned before the age of eleven. During these 
early years the memory is very active and the child enjoys 
rapid drill work. He has very little power of steady ap- 
plication, but must have frequent changes of work. His 
reasoning powers have not yet developed and therefore 
the solving of puzzling problems, the attempt to give a 
thorough knowledge of any such subject as interest or 
mensuration, or the teaching of technical grammar, in 



154 CITY OP CONCORD. 

short, work in any abstract subject is entirely out of place. 
This is the time for establishing habits by doing. The 
child's thinking is slow, but he must be doing things all 
the time. He cares nothing for abstract principles or gen- 
eral rules but he is interested in doing the concrete ex- 
ample, and from the doing o'f a large number of concrete 
examples the abstract principle may be established. 

It is not until the child reaches the age of twelve or 
fifteen years that he begins to reason from the abstract 
back to the concrete. . The mechanical processes should be 
so thoroughly mastered before this that he would, not have 
to give them any thought but may be able to give all his 
attention to the solution of the problem in hand. Most of 
the difficulties which upper grade and high school pupils 
encounter in their work arise from the fact that they did 
not receive sufficient drill in the fundamentals to give 
them the mastery of them, but were kept puzzling over 
work entirely beyond their ability, such as technical gram- 
mar and the difficult principles of arithmetic. 

By adapting the work to the ages of the pupils there 
begins to show a material improvement in all subjects. 
The essentials of reading, language and grammar, arith- 
metic, history, geography, writing, etc., are better taught 
ami the non-essentials are receiving less attention. 

The most important changes in text-books during the 
year w T ere in arithmetic and writing. In both of these 
subjects, with the new books, a marked improvement has 
been made in the work during the year. 

The work in singing, which was introduced last year, is 
showing good progress and amply justifies the expense 
incurred. 

In closing, I desire to extend my thanks to parents, teach- 
ers and school board whose support and co-operation have 
made the success of our work possible. 

J. A. MACDOUGALL, 

Superintendent of Schools. 



PEPORT OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. 



In submitting our report for the year ending in March, 
1909, it is in the belief that our schools have maintained a 
degree of progress and general prosperity that will com- 
pare favorably with other rural schools. Whatever we may 
provide in schoolrooms, or books, or good supervision, the 
success of our schools depends largely upon the teacher. 
The often repeated saying, that the teacher makes the 
school, is exemplified in some of our smaller schools quite 
as well as in the larger schools of the city. We realize that 
the selection of competent teachers is one of the most im- 
portant duties devolving on the school board. 

A question, often difficult of solution, is how to provide 
school privileges for the one, two, three or more children in 
sections where the limited number makes the support of a 
school inadvisable, and the homes of the children are so 
remote from any school as to require conveyance at the 
expense of the district. Arrangements that seem most con- 
sistent with all circumstances in the case, are sometimes 
unsatisfactory. It should be remembered, however, that a 
perfect equalization of privileges under circumstances 
above referred to, would be an impossibility. 

The treasurer's report shows the balance in his hands 
of some $600 less than that of a year ago. The annexa- 
tion of the Burrough district to District No. 20, while re- 
lieving us of some expense, has materially reduced our 
revenue. A recent act of the legislature has made it the 
duty of each district to fix and pay its salaries, and to 
make all appropriations at the school meeting. It would 
be impossible to calculate definitely our current expenses 
for the coming year. It is evident, however, that we must 



156 CITY OP CONCORD. 

raise a larger amount of money than last year or submit to 
a curtailment of our school privileges.

REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



Office of the Board of Water Commissioners. 

Concord, N. H., February 1, 1909. 
To His Honor the Mayor and the City Council: 

The Board of Water Commissioners have the honor to 
transmit herewith, the reports of the superintendent and 
the engineer of the pumping station, exhibiting in detail 
the operations of the system for the year 1908, which cover 
the ground so fully that there is little for the board to add. 
We wish, however, to commend and express our appre- 
ciation of the faithful service of all the employees of the 
department. 

The physical condition of the system is eminently satis- 
factory. Our citizens have abundant cause for congratula- 
tion in the fact that while other municipalities have, during 
the protracted drought of last summer, been threatened 
with a water famine, our system has yielded an abundant 
supply of unexceptional quality, no consumer having been 
obliged to restrict himself in its use for fear of exhausting 
the supply. 

Respectfully submitted,

GEORGE D. B. PRESCOTT,

"We have been compelled to shut off one service for non- 
payment of water-bill. 

The improvement of the wood-lots owned by the city 
around the shores of the lake has occupied the attention 
of our force during the winter months mainly by thinning 
and clearing out the dead wood and underbrush. 

In the spring, 2,000 small pine trees were set out on one 
of the pasture lots, but owing to the extremely dry season 
some of them died. A small nursery has been started, 
twenty-five pounds of pine seed being purchased and sown 
in beds. It is the intention of the department to transplant 
these little trees on the several lots around the lake as soon 
as they are large enough. 

The shores of the lake have had a great deal of attention 
this season but there still remains a large number of stumps

which we hope to remove another season if the present low 
stage of water continues. 

On account of high water which has at times been above 
the flagging on the dam, the fence and its foundations had 
become somewhat undermined so that repairs were neces- 
sary. It was decided to construct a solid concrete wall about 
five feet in depth and to extend the flagging in concrete 
to meet the face of this wall. A pipe rail fence with 2-inch 
pipe for risers and 1%-inch pipe for runners and special 
fittings has been placed on the wall. It is the intention 
to place a similar fence on the east side of the dam the 
coming season. This work was done by the department by 
day labor and it is hoped that it will prove substantial and 
lasting. 

The 6-inch main has been extended in Washington Street 
and Park Avenue. Penacook, in order that the patrons 
of Contoocook River Park might have the benefit of Pena- 
cook Lake water. 

There have been two other extensions of street pipes, 
one in Penacook Street, Penacook, south from Rolfe Street, 
and one in the Iron Works Road, west from South Street, 
in the city. 

This season has seen practically the completion of the 
relaying of the cement-lined pipe laid in 1872, with cast- 
iron pipe, there now remaining but 1,200 feet, which will 
he replaced in 1909. This relaying, with the exception of 
what was done when the high service was installed, was 
begun in 1897. the work being done by the department by 
day labor and has been paid for wholly from the income 
from the water rates. With the increased size of mains 
the system is now in excellent condition for any demands 
that may be made upon it. 

The following list is given, showing the extent of the 
relaying and the changes made in the sizes of the mains :

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 



BOARD OF HEALTH REPORT. 



To the City Council: 

We have the honor to submit the following report of 
the Board of Health for the year ending December 31, 
1908. 

Meetings. 

Regular monthly meetings have been held throughout 
the year and some business of a routine nature was 
transacted at nearly every meeting. We have been fre- 
quently interrogated by the sanitary officer as to the best 
method of handling certain contingencies and we have 
taken pleasure in the discussions which have been provoked 
in this manner. 

Contagious Diseases. 

The city has been singularly free from contagious dis- 
eases during the past year. Such cases as have appeared 
have been promptly quarantined either at their homes or 
at the hospital. On the recovery or death of the patient 
the premises and all books, clothing, furniture, etc., are 
thoroughly fumigated by formaldehyde gas. 

This gas, in concentrated form, is very deadly to all 
forms of germ life and effectually sterilizes all articles with 
which it is brought into intimate contact. 

The method approved and adopted by this board is the 
one now generally conceded to be the most effectual. We 
refer to the potassium permanganate and formalin method 
which has the advantage of almost instantaneouslv liberat- 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 205 

ing immense volumes of gas insuring good and efficient 
action even though the cracks around doors and windows 
are not sealed. 

The liberal use of antitoxin in diphtheria cases has, of 
course, been the most important factor in the holding of 
that dread malady in check. 

For a detailed statement of contagious diseases as well 
as of other matters of interest we refer you to the report 
of the sanitary officer which is transmitted herewith. 

Vaccination. 

We are pleased to be able to report that our crusade for 
the better enforcement of the vaccination law has borne 
fruit with the result that there are now very few unvacci- 
nated school children. 

Milk Inspection. 

The inspection of milk and dairies has gone steadily on 
by the milk inspector assisted by the sanitary officer. Your 
body has been kept in touch with the work by monthly re- 
ports, for a general summing up of which, as well as for 
other information pertinent to this matter, I refer you to 
the milk inspector's report which is hereby transmitted. 

At a meeting held November 2 this board adopted the 
Dairy Score Card of the United States Department of 
Agriculture for the purpose of keeping the records of 
dairy and milk inspections. 

This action serves to make our records uniform with, 
and comparable to, those of many other communities using 
the same methods. 

It is probable that commerce, guided by science, will 
eventually solve the clean milk problem here as it has 
already done in many other places. The relentless law of 
the survival of the fittest is sure to gradually eliminate the 
unclean. The propaganda for reform should be an educa- 



206 CITY OF CONCORD. 

tional movement, teaching the public what it is entitled to 
have. 

The laboratory and field work of the inspector should 
be addressed to the instruction of the producer and handler 
of milk primarily, and to informing the public as to which 
sources of supply nearest conform to our standards 
secondarily. It would seem as though a quarterly bulle- 
tin in the public prints, showing the score-card rating of 
all producers could not fail to be productive of much good. 
Perhaps a better method would be to publish the names 
of all those whose scores were equal to, or above a certain 
fixed minimum. This would naturally stimulate the pro- 
ducer as it seems likely that in the course of time those 
whose names habitually appeared on the "roll of honor" 
would receive the bulk of the most desirable patronage. 

The rest w r ould be simple. Forced by this "bloodless 
warfare of commerce" the delinquents must either retire 
from the business or adjust their methods and product to 
the standard demanded by the people. 

From time to time the "fixed minimum score" should 
be raised a few points and thus the improvement would 
go on constantly all along the line. 

Water Supply. 

Our city is fortunate in having a never-failing source 
of pure water so near at hand. Every effort should be 
made to preserve its purity. The policy of the city in 
acquiring the shore property around Penacook Lake can- 
not be too highly commended. No doubt the forests which 
will eventually surround this charming body of water can 
be made to yield a constant supply of merchantable tim- 
ber which in years to come will pay fair interest on the 
money invested. 

The multiplication of power boats on the lake has 
raised the question as to the effect upon the water for 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 207 

drinking purposes. It would seem as though there is no 
cause for fear in that direction. 

The engine exhausts throws out some oil in the form of 
a spray. This settles on the water but does not mix with 
it. It must all be washed ashore in the course of time. 

This film of oil on the water near the shore no doubt 
prevents the breeding of mosquitoes to a certain extent, as 
oiling the surface of ponds and swamps is a well known 
method of exterminating this pest. 

The drainage of the various cottages and camps around 
the lake might be a menace did not rigid inspection by the 
sanitary officer reduce this danger to a minimum. 

Mr. Howard, the state chemist, reports favorably on the 
water after a long series of analyses, covering every sea- 
son of the year. 

The faint vegetable odor and taste at certain times is 
due to the presence of certain algae or microscopic water 
plants. They are harmless. 

In conclusion, the board wishes to express its thanks to 
the sanitary officer, Mr. Palmer, for his hearty and intelli- 
gent co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES R, CORNING, Mayor,

REPORT OF niLK INSPECTOR. 



The adoption of the new milk ordinance, one year ago, 
was a distinct innovation in the methods of producing and 
handling milk in our city. 

Previous to this time little thought was given to the 
care of this very important product, when, with a fat and 
solid of sufficient standard, everybody rested content. Now, 
however, we have begun to learn that the fat and solid 
content of a milk are of very little importance and that a 
clean, wholesome milk is what we want and' that such a 
milk is of vital moment to the health of every consumer. 

There is still much to be done in our city on this problem 
of clean milk, but all has been done as far as time and 
opportunity would allow to educate both consumer and 
producer. This has been accomplished in the main, as Mr. 
Palmer's report shows, by personal work, talks, etc.. with 
both the producer and consumer, with the results that 
many methods have been changed and much equipment 
abandoned or improved. 

The greatest difficulty in the production of clean milk 
is that the consumer is not willing to pay the price which 
will enable the producer to sell his milk of pure quality at 
a reasonable amount of profit. 

We all know that milk as a universal food enters every 
home and is the principal food of infants, children and in- 
valids, but few realize that every quart of milk at seven 
cents is equivalent in food value to a pound of beef at 
eighteen cents. 

Clean milk is a safe and valuable article of food with 
nutritive value unimpaired, hard to produce and cheap at 
any price. Dirty milk is dangerous as a food with nutri- 
tive value very much impaired, easy to produce and dear 
at any price. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 209 

To produce clean, wholesome milk requires great care 
and considerable expense; the producer must learn this, 
and having learned it, he necessarily expects the consumer 
to pay him for his time and care. 

Concord does not pay for the cleanest of milk — few 
.cities do for that matter. There are some men in Concord 
now who can furnish you a very creditable milk and a 
milk that stands out above most of the others. These men 
deserve encouragement by increased patronage, and I think 
they are getting it. These men are encouraged to do still 
better and all men are stimulated by just pride to raise 
their standard to that of the very best milk plant in our 
city, as shown by the records. 

How high the standard will be raised depends entirely 
on how much Concord citizens are willing to pay for their 
milk. 

The consumer, as well as the inspector, is the stimulant 
to make the producer bring to our door a clean, wholesome 
milk. 

Mr. Weld, a Washington expert, estimated in a sample 
of Concord milk a teaspoonful of dirt to one eight-quart 
can. This man's milk is going into the homes of hundreds 
of Concord's citizens and unless the bacteriological count 
is over 500,000 or the temperature higher than fifty degrees 
Fahrenheit, no law can reach him. 

Insist that your milk is left at your door in glass jars 
and refuse to pay for all milk which on standing shows 
dirt in the bottom of the jar. Don't pay for a milk that 
tastes bitter, or one that has a peculiar color, or is sour 
when received ; all these characteristics are due to bac- 
teria, which means carelessness in handling and might 
easily have been avoided. 

In closing, will say that, with few exceptions, the atti- 
tude of the producer has been all that could be desired, .and. 
we feel that improvement will be steady- and permanent.

Milk Inspector. 



REPORT OF SANITARY OFFICER. 



To the Board of Health: 

Gentlemen: As Sanitary Officer I herewith submit to 
you my annual report for the year ending December 31, 
1908, detailing the general character of the work of the 
Health Department. 

Mortality. 

There were reported 428 deaths during the year, com- 
pared with the same number for the previous year. The 
death rate was 15.25 per 1,000, compared with 15.2 in 
1907. There were 138 bodies sent out of town for inter- 
ment and 95 'bodies were brought to Concord from other 
places for burial ; in each case a transmit permit issued by 
the proper authorities accompanied the body. 

Contagious Diseases. 

The record of 1908 shows that there was a decrease in 
the number of cases of contagious diseases in Concord, the 
total being less than for any year during the last four. 
There were reported to this office during the year, 100 
cases of measles, 7 cases of scarlet fever, 44 cases of diph- 
theria, with 4 deaths, and 6 cases of typhoid fever, with 1 
death, making a total of 157 cases and 5 deaths. 

Houses containing cases of contagious diseases were pla- 
carded and quarantine established. A number of cases of 
diphtheria and scarlet fever were cared for at the conta- 
gious disease ward of the Margaret Pillsbury General Hos- 
pital, the indigent patients being provided for at the ex- 
pense of the Board of Health. 



health department. 211 

Inspections. 

I have inspected the different school buildings of the 
city and found them in good sanitary condition. Inspec- 
tions were also made at different times during the year of 
the stables and alleyways in the business portion of the 
city and of all premises complained of. 

AVater Supply. 

Concord is to be congratulated on its water supply. 
During the year samples have been analyzed and the re- 
sults were satisfactory, also through the drought the latter- 
part of the year samples showed upon analysis to be of 
good quality. I have inspected the lake and found that 
many improvements have been made by the Water Board 
in the removal of decayed stumps and other objectionable 
matter. Inspections were also made of the reservoir, and 
found to be in good condition. 

Rabies. 

Several dogs suspected of having rabies were called to 
our attention and in two instances the animals were killed 
and the heads were sent to Hanover for analysis, with the 
results heing reported as positive. 

Fumigation. 

The cost of the supplies for fumigation was $50.52. For- 
maldehyde gas liberated by potassium permanganate was 
used with the same good results as in former years. 

Inspection of Dairy Farms. 

January 1, 1908, an ordinance regulating the sale and 
care of milk went into effect, and during the year Dr. Dun- 
can, our milk inspector, and myself have inspected 100 



212 CITY OF CONCORD. 

dairies where milk is supplied to our city. I am sorry to 
state that many of the conditions were not what they 
should be or what the ordinance requires. 

In October, in company with Professor Ivan C. Weld, 
assitant in the United States Department of Agriculture 
at Washington, we inspected twelve of our best milk pro- 
ducing dairies and used the United States government 
dairy score card, and I am sorry to state that the scores 
ranged from 29 to 56 points, or an average of 40 per cent. 
The average should be twice that figure. 

We have visited dairies where the conditions were filthy : 
the walls and ceilings were covered with cobwebs and dust, 
the large, flaring milk pails were used and the dirt drop- 
ping from above into the milk pail or can contaminated 
the milk. The particles might be strained out but the 
germs remained in the sensitive product to multiply. 

Suggestions have been made to the dairymen for the 
better sanitary condition of the barns and greater cleanli- 
ness in the care of the milk and milk utensils. Many of 
our suggestions have been carried out, and others are to 
follow, and we hope during the coming year to make 
greater progress along these lines with the co-operation of 
our citizens in demanding and knowing they have a pure 
and clean milk. The dairy score cards that are made From 
time to time will 'be on file as a public record.

To the Honorable Mayor and City Council: 

I herewith submit for your consideration the following- 
report of the Fire Department for the year 1908 : 

The department responded to 71 bell alarms and 199 
still alarms. 



Precinct, 
Penacook, 
East Concord, 
West Concord, 



74 199 273 

This report will be found to contain statements in detail 
embracing the amount of expenditures, a complete roll of 
the department, with residence and occupation of each 
member, a record of all fires and alarms which have oc- 
curred during the year and the causes thereof, as nearly as 
could be ascertained, with the names of the owners or oc- 
cupants and the value, loss, insurance and insurance recov- 
ered in each case. 

The apparatus is in good condition, with the exception 
of Pioneer Engine, No. 3, which will have to be repaired or 
replaced in the near future. 

The Pioneer, Cataract and Good Will wagons were 
thoroughly repaired, retouched and varnished. 



240 CITY OP CONCORD. 

One Eastman Jumbo Deluge set was added to the equip- 
ment. 

One horse was purchased and one placed on a farm, con- 
ditionally. 

'The test of hose resulted in the condemning of 300 feet 
and the laying aside for relining of 500 feet. 

I respectfully recommend the purchase of 500 feet of 
hose during the coming year, as was done in the year pre- 
ceding. 

This policy continued, will, under ordinary circum- 
stances, keep the complement of hose intact and avoid the 
necessity of purchasing a large amount at one time. The 
fire alarm telegraph system is in good condition. 

The storage battery plates, 244 in number, were renewed. 

A Gamewell electric alarm system was installed in Pena- 
cook, and, as will be seen by the report of Assistant En- 
gineer F. M. Dodge, in whose charge it rests, has given 
most satisfactory service. The regrettable excess of ex- 
penditures over appropriations is in part explained by the 
advantageous purchase of extra fuel, the abnormal number 
of brush fires and attendant expense, and the high price 
of forage which prevailed throughout the entire year. 

I wish to return my sincere thanks to your honorable 
body for the opportunity afforded me to attend the con- 
vention of the International Association of Fire Engineers 
held at Columbus, Ohio, in August. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. C. GREEN, 
Chief Engineer.

pose 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 men- 
tioned. 

The Fire-Alarm Telegraph 

is the "Gramewell" patent. It embraces 40 miles of wire. 

On the lines are 43 fire-alarm boxes belonging to the 

city, and nine private boxes — in all, 52. There are three 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 281 

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 six indi- 
cators. 

The battery consists of 244 storage battery cells for the 
lines, and 46 open-circuit battery cells for other electrical 
purposes*. 

The alarm system was installed in 18S0 by the Game- 
well Fire-Alarm 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." 
designed expressly for the purpose of informing yen 
whether an alarm is being transmitted the instant you 
open the door. 

Open the box, and if this bell is not beard, 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. 

Wait, until 20 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 fire, remain at the box to direct the depart- 
ment. 

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. 



282 CITY OF CONCORD. 

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

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



PENAOOOK FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 
Number, Location, Etc. 
\Y. ('. Green, Chief Engineer: 

I herewith submit for your consideration the following 
report of the Penaeook fire-alarm telegraph system : 

The system is the Gamewell patent and consists of three 
and one half miles of number nine iron wire. 

On the lines are six boxes owned by the city, two pri- 
vate boxes, one 1,500-pound bell, one indicator, two 
mechanical gongs and four direct-action tappers. The 
battery consists of thirty-six storage battery cells. 

The system has given satisfactory results and has been 
of great assistance in locating fires and saving valuable 
time in giving an alarm. 

I would respectfully recommend the addition to the 
system of two boxes during the coming year, and a whistle 
blowing attachment also, as the territory covered does not 
admit of the hearing of the bell at all times. 
Respectfully submitted, 
FRED M. DODGE.

Testing Signals. 

For the purpose of testing the condition and accuracy of 
the fire-alarm telegraph, a box alarm will be rung in every 



284 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Saturday afternoon at 12.50 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. 

Directions for Giving an Alarm. 

To open the box, break the glass and turn the key. 

In each box there is a small bell called a "tell-tale," 
designed 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 the whole length of the slot, 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. 

Unless your presence is most urgently required at the 
scene of the fire, 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. 

The Penacook fire-alarm system was installed in June, 
1908, under direction of the chief engineer.

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES. 



To the City Council of Concord, N. II.: 

The trustees of the Public Library take much satisfaction 
in submitting to the city government and to the citizens of 
Concord the aunual report of the librarian. Its lucid and 
comprehensive statements of the work done during the past 
year prove the increasing usefulness of this department and 
plainly indicate that the library might be of much greater 
advantage to the people, if it were furnished with adequate 
accommodations. That it is sadly crippled in this respect 
is a fact so obviously apparent, that an assertion to the 
contrary would not weaken its force, except upon the theory 
that no public library is needed. But the trustees do not 
deem it necessary at this time to indulge in repetition. 
Former reports contain our views upon this subject. 

With the usual appropriation of $5,000 for the support 
of the library it can continue its work, it is believed, with 
some degree of success for another year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. E. WALKER, 
President Board of -Trustees. 



REPORT OF LIBRARIAN. 



To the Board of Trustees of the Concord Public Library: 

'Gentlemen, — The number of volumes circulated during 
1908 was 96,091, an increase of 4,958 over the preceding 
year, and the largest total in the library's records. No ac- 
count is kept of the number of persons who consult books 
in the reference room or of the number who frequent the 
reading room. Only once before, and that in 1889, was this 
great circulation of 1908 approached ; and in 1889 the rush 
of business was induced by the removal of the library into 
this then new Fowler building and by the withdrawal of 
all subscription charges. 

It is surprising that the use of the library has increased 
during 1908, >as the comfort of readers and the efficiency of 
our service are hindered by our cramped quarters, and as 
cheap attractions have multiplied in town. 

No book has been lost during 1908 which has not been set- 
tled for by the loser. There have been a few despicable 
mutilations of volumes, consisting chiefly of the cutting out 
of leaves. 

The proportion of fiction read was, as usual, about 70 
per cent. The boys and girls, however, are taking out a 
better class of stories than formerly because much of their 
leisure for reading has to be spent on the standard fiction 
which they are required by the schools to become familiar 
with ; 1908 has been the first year to see an appreciable 
increase in the reading of works on sociological subjects. 

Number of volumes bought during the last 

twelve months, 1,225 

Discarded because worn out, 812 

Net gain to shelves, 413 

Number of volumes now in the library, 29,491 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 305 

Of the 1,225 volumes purchased, 515 were of new publi- 
cations, 115 came from the binding of magazines for refer- 
ence work; of the remaining, 366 were fresh copies of old 
favorites and 229 were desired duplicates — ■not necessarily 
novels, for we had to buy two copies of "The Life of Alice 
Freeman Palmer," two of "Classroom Management" and 
of a few other non-fiction works. 

Last winter, when it was called dull times in Concord, we 
imagined that people might, have unoccupied hours when 
they would like to resort to a cheerful, warm place stocked 
with newspapers and magazines ; therefore, in the hope of 
making the library of more good to a greater number, we 
kept open till 9 o'clock during February and March. 
Placards advertising this privilege were taken by the libra- 
rian to the railroad shops, the manufactories and quarries, 
the pool-rooms and restaurants, the corner groceries and 
the Main-Street stores. The experiment was not a success ;, 
no new element was drawn to the library and the reading 
room often had a deserted look during this hour when we 
had hoped to see it crowded. 

A single opportunity which we offered was more eagerly 
embraced. I refer to the night when, at the close of its 
session, those in 'attendance at the Evening School across 
the way visited the library and spent a social hour looking 
about and choosing books to carry home. These chance 
borrowers were of many nationalities and it was a great 
pleasure to surprise them by the loan of stories in their 
native tongues. 

At the request of the Woman's Club a shelf in the hall 
was each month filled with printed matter relating to a 
topic suitable for the Club's consideration. The different 
subjects which thus challenged attention but did not seem 
to secure it from January to May were : 

Forestry. 

Juvenile Courts. 

The Town Beautiful an'd Gypsy Moths. 

Organized Play and Vacation Schools. 

Gardens.

306 CITY OF CONCORD. 

At the beginning of the school year, in September, the 
library distributed among Concord teachers a list with call- 
numbers of books recommended for their perusal by the 
State Superintendent of Public Instruction; this list was 
well received. Small collections of our books are placed at 
the disposal of any teacher desiring the same; and the 
librarian, upon request, gives brief talks about books to 
pupils at their schoolrooms. 

For several years the library has run a summer branch 
and in 1908 it was located over on the Plains from the mid- 
dle of June to the middle of September. This makes five 
suburbs of Concord where library extension work has been 
successfully tried. Adults appreciate this rotating Branch 
sufficiently to make its maintenance worth while, but it is 
a good thing chiefly for the children who, during the long 
vacation, thus have a place to resort to where books and 
a friend await them. The little shack rented on the Plains 
was close to the main road and the librarian found the 
location blessed by a breeze from off pine woods and by a 
wide horizon. 

Our deposit and delivery stations at East Concord, West 
Concord, Mast Yard and St. Paul's 'School remain under 
the supervision of the same capable persons as in 1907. 
We regret that at Penacook Mr. George H. Whitman, by 
reason of his intention to move elsewhere, can no longer 
take care of our bi-weekly box of books; but the Ward 1 
agency will be continued. From each district comes testi- 
mony that these little come-and-go libraries are enjoyed. 
The lady in charge of one writes : 

' ' I am surprised that people are reading so eagerly ; one 
woman who has been quite discontented — a person who 
never read even a newspaper — is reading two or three books 
a week and seems no end happier, and she says that she 
had no idea stories were so nice." 

The United States and foreign governments, our own 
and other states, Concord and sister cities have as in previ- 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 307 

ous years favored us by donations of their publications. 
From colleges, churches, hospitals, fraternities, associations, 
clubs and political parties we have received valued reports 
and other printed matter. Of individual donors I will men- 
tion as of especial interest to Concord people the following : 

Mrs. Armenia S. White, 
Mrs. Armenia W. Hobbs, 
Mrs. William B. Durgin, 
Mrs. A. B. Cross, 
Mrs. R. W. Cate, 
Mrs. Henry B. Colby, 
Miss Lillian Phaneuf , 
Mr. Samuel C. Eastman, 
Mr. William E. Chandler, 
Mr. Frank W. Rollins, 
Mr. Giles Wheeler, 
Mr. Roy M. Grover, 
Mr. B. J. Harriott. 
Mr. Milo Benedict. 

The death of Mr. Moses Hazen Bradley, in October of 
the past year, removed from the Board of Trustees one who 
was sincerely interested in the welfare of the library and 
one from whom the staff experienced- many kindnesses. 

There being nothing new to be said concerning our press- 
ing needs, the foregoing report is respectfully submitted. 

GRACE BLANOHARD, 

Librarian. . 



REPORT OF CITY ENGINEER. 



Office of the City Engineer, 
Concord, X. H., December 31, 1908. 

To the City Council: 

The sixteenth annual report of the engineering depart- 
ment, showing something of the work covered by it, is 
herewith submitted. 

The expenses of the department have been as follows: 

Paid engineer and assistants, $3,148.57 

for supplies, 114.60 

postage, 4.25 

repairs, 19.30 

express, . 2.25 

telephone rental and tolls, 29.50 

car fares and livery, 65.90 

cards, assessors maps, 14.63 



Total, 

Appropriation for engineering department. 
Appropriation for 'assessors' maps, 


$3,399,00 

$2,900.00 
500.00 


Total, 
Expended, 


$3,400.00 
3,399.00 



Unexpended balance, $1.00 

Assessors' Maps. 

During the early months of the year plans of Wards 4, 
5 and 6 were completed, showing the different pieces of 



REPORT OF CITY ENGINEER. 309 

property in each, but owing to the difficulties in definitely 
settling the ownership of some properties, only the plans 
of Ward 6, with a full list of the owners, were completed 
and turned over to the assessor of that ward. The other 
plans of Wards 4 and 5, together with a portion of Wards 
7, 8 and 9 will be ready for the assessors in those wards 
early in April, 1909. 

The field work on the remaining portions of the several 
wards will be greatly increased as we get further back 
from the thickly settled portions of the city, where lots 
are less clearly defined and are much more difficult to 
locate. It is hardly possible for one not familiar with the 
localities covered with varying growths, to locate and value 
the different parcels of land and to properly tax the same 
without the assistance of some map to show the different 
owners and the areas covered by each. 

Many owners fail to return their outlying lands, or to 
record deeds showing transfers of such property, thereby 
avoiding taxation on them. 

It is apparent, that, as we get into the outlying dis- 
tricts, property will be found, which will, in a few years, 
pay for much of the labor on maps in the shape of taxes. 

The amount expended on this work the past season was 
$1,024.82. The appropriation made far this work was 
$500, the balance of $524.82 was taken from the appro- 
priation for the engineering department. 

Park Department. 

The stone work, at the entrance to White Park, opposite 
Pine Street, was built the past season from plans made in 
this department. Batters were set for this work and final 
measurements made of it and turned over to the park 
commissioners. 

Fire Department. 

The maps showing the location of all fire-alarm boxes 



310 CITY OF CONCORD. 

and hydrants, in the city proper, was brought up to date, 
and a map showing the location of the lire-alarm boxes 
and 'hydrants in Penaeook was made and turned over to 
the assistant chief engineer in that district. 

Water- Works. 

Batters were set for the concrete wall on the westerly 
side of the dam at the lower end of Forge Pond. 

Cemeteries. 

But little work was done for the cemetery commissioners 
during the past season as no time was available owing to 
demands in other directions. 

Necessary surveys should be made of the southerly ad- 
dition to Blossom Hill Cemetery, before that section is 
disturbed in any way, in order that such work as may be 
done there will be in accordance with some fixed plan. 

The deed books for Blossom Hill Cemetery were brought 
up to date. 

Building Permits. 

In company with the chief engineer of the fire depart- 
ment I have attended fifteen 'hearings upon petitions for 
repairs or for new structures. 

All of the petitions were granted after hearings upon 
the premises. 

Highway Department. 

The work for this department has been, as usual, the 
setting of grades and giving lines, when requested, for 
street and sidewalk improvements and construction. 

Lines were given for the widening of the bridge across 
Turkey River, near St. Paul 's School ; a sketch of location 
of girders in the floor of the bridge and clamps for hold- 
ing girders in place was made and delivered to the com- 
missioner of highways. 






REPORT OP CITY ENGINEER. 311 

Monthly statements of the amounts of coal-tar concrete 
surfaces laid for sidewalk and roadway work were made 
during the season in which it was possible to lay this 
material. 

Sewers. 

Much time was spent on the construction of the "Hall's 
Court" outlet sewer, from the commencement of the work 
in the spring until September first. 

The building of the sixty-inch portion under the tracks 
of the Boston & Maine Railroad was necessarily somewhat 
delayed by the nature of the work, as trains were run at 
short intervals and the work had to be in readiness, at all 
times, for the safe passage of trains. The hearty co-opera- 
tion of the railroad officials aided the work in many ways 
and was fully appreciated. 

The forty-two-ineh section from the foot of Hall's Court 
to its junction with the sewer from the north, in North 
Main Street, was in the deepest cutting of the whole line 
but the entire work was completed without any accident or 
injury to any persons employed on the works. 

The boulders and old retaining wall, found on the east- 
erly side of North Main Street, were costly to remove near 
the bottom of the trench, as was also the old culvert and 
the stand-pipe from it which were encountered in laying 
the thirty-inch pipe to connect the sewer from the south 
with the forty-two-inch sewer. 

The completion of this outlet does not relieve us from 
the necessity for continuing the work of enlarging the 
sewers in North Main, Washington, Beacon, Rumford and 
Franklin Streets, to relieve the much congested conditions 
in the districts served by this outlet. At present the outlet 
is carrying only a small portion of its capacity, it will, 
when the contemplated enlargements of connecting mains 
are made give the desired relief. 

The need of increased capacity in the mains, in the sev- 



312 CITY OF CONCORD. 

era! districts of the city precinct, is more apparent as our 
street surfaces are improved, the land more closely built 
upon and more surface water thereby added to the already 
overloaded sewers. 

Your earnest attention is called to the urgent need of 
liberal appropriations for sewer improvements. 

But one small lateral sewer was laid the past season and 
that in North State Street opposite Calvary Cemetery. 

The cost of all construction and repairs is given on 
the following pages. 

West Concord Sewer Precinct. 

Repairs to the twenty-inch outlet in this precinct were 
necessary on account of settlement in the land lying east- 
erly from the old kit factory site. The pipes were un- 
covered at the points where settlements were noted, the 
joints re-made and the earth replaced. No trouble has 
been noticed since this treatment. It was probably caused 
by high water in the river forcing out the old joints v 

At the lower outlet the brook became foul and the chan- 
nel seriously obstructed, so that it was necessary to clean 
out the brook channel for some distance. The principal 
cause of this trouble was the very dry season and the conse- 
quent reduction in the flow both in the sewer and the brook 
into which it empties. 
There was expended for above work and flushing 

the sum of $122.93 

Balance from 1907, 24.65 

Overdrawn, $98.28 

St. Paul's School .Sewerage Precinct. 

There has been expended the annual charge for water 
used in the flush-tanks; $45 to the water- works, and the 
sum of $2 for trucking. Total expenditure, $47.

Funds available January 1, 1908. $70.64 

Expended, 47.00 

Unexpended balance $23.64 

East Concord Sewer Precinct. 

No repairs were made and no expenses incurred during 
the season chargeable to construction and repairs, leaving 
the amount available for this work the same as last year, 
viz., $127.53. 

The employees of this department for the past season 
were Fred W. Lang, principal assistant ; Clarence A. Little, 
assistant ; Martin G. Ferry, assistant ; Charles 0. Brown, 
Lester H. Plaisted and Otto Davis, rodmen, all of whom 
cheerfully performed the duties assigned to them. 

The report of the hydrant commissioners and the board 
of examiners of plumbers will be found under their re- 
spective headings. 

To the mayor and the city council I wish to express 
my appreciation for their counsel and support, and for 
the privilege of attending the annual meeting of the Ameri- 
can Society of Municipal Improvements, whose sessions 
are a source of much valuable information and profit to 
men engaged on municipal works, also to the heads of 
other departments whose relations with this department 
have been pleasant.

REPORT OF HYDRANT COMMIS= 
SIONERS. 



Concord, N. H., December 31, 1908. 
To the City Council: 

At a meeting held January 9, 1908, the board unani- 
mously recommended placing hydrants at the following 
points and a letter covering the locations here given was 
forwarded to Hon. Solon A. Carter, president of the water 
board : 

Church Street, 50 feet easterly from Bradley Street. 

Tremont Street, 125 feet easterly from Harrod Street. 

Tremont Street, at Jackson Street, 

Jackson Street, east side near Cole's Court, 

Pearl Street, 200 feet easterly from North State Street. 

Academy Street, between Cambridge and Washington 
Streets. 

Huntington Street, at Short Street. 

•School Street, move hydrant next west to Piine and 
School Streets. 

School Street, at Liberty Street. 

Fruit Street, 700 feet southerly from Pleasant Street. 

Laurel Street, at 'Grove Street. 

Hall Street, 500 feet southerly from Hammond Street. 

West Main Street, Penaeook, at Pine Street. 

Allison Street, at Badger Street. 

On April 7, 1908, the board met in Penaeook and located 
the following hydrants: 

Penaeook Street, in road to intervale at John Chadwick 's. 

Penaeook Street, 215 feet southerly from E. L. Davis' 
barn. 



REPORT OF HYDRANT COMMISSIONERS. 321 

A hydrant was set on Electric Avenue, Penacook, at 
Elliott Street, and one on the Iron Works Road near the 
Charles Brown place. 

All hydrants recommended were set during the past sea- 
son, excepting the one on South Fruit Street, which should 
be set the coming season to provide fire protection to the 
houses in this vicinity. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. B. HOWE, 
W. C. GREEN, 
P. R. SANDERS, 
Board of Hydrant Commissioners. 



REPORT OF CEMETERY COnniS= 
SIONERS. 



Concord, N. H., January, 1909. 
To the City Council: 

In making our annual report the commissioners can only 
say that your appropriation has been expended in the 
planting >of trees and shrubs and in the care and improve- 
ment of both cemeteries intrusted to our care. For the 
financial standing of the cemeteries we would refer you to 
the report of the city treasurer. The burials for the past 
year have been one hundred and ninety (190) in Blossom 
Hill Cemetery and thirty (30) in the Old North Cemetery. 

The new chapel has been used but six (6) times the past 
year and the commissioners cannot understand why the 
pnblic continue to have funeral services held in the under- 
takers' rooms when this beautiful chapel can be had free 
of expense. 

We would again recommend that a small appropriation 
be made for the employment of a competent landscape 
architect to lay out the new section at Blossom Hill, which 
was purchased a few years ago of Mr. Bradley, so that 
when needed for new lots it would be ready for use. What- 
ever sum you may place at our disposal will be expended, 
we trust, in a manner that will merit your approval.

It is twenty years since work was commenced in develop- 
ing White Park and 'during that time a beginning has been 
made on a system of parks which when completed will 
compare favorably with any city of the size of Concord. 

Unlike many municipalities, the plan here has been to 
develop this system gradual^, but a comparison of the be- 
ginning and the conditions which now obtain show a splen- 
did amount of work accomplished. The appreciation and 
the use of the parks have been gratifying to those whose 
time and thought have been engaged in the administration 
of the work, and while conditions have not reached a com- 
pletion, yet it is hoped that from year to year a greater 
advance can be made. 

This year an advance has been made in the new work at 
White Park by the erection of a new gateway at the Pine 
Street entrance. Unusual difficulties were found in secur- 
ing a good foundation owing to the bed of muck underly- 
ing the surface, and thereby increasing the cost, but the 
result has been very gratifying and with the new extension 
of the iron fence gives a more dignified and completed con- 
dition to this beautiful park. 

It does not seem inappropriate that this new entrance be 
named the "Corning Gateway," in honor of our retiring 
mayor who has shown such interest in the development of 
the park system. 

The Usual care of maintenance has demanded the full 
time and attention of the superintendent and his assistants, 
who have taken great interest in their work. The sub- 
division of expense on account of each park will be found 
elsewhere. 

Xew features which have been introduced have been at 
Rollins Park, where a merry-go-round has been placed to 
the great delight of the children, also the improvement of 
the shelters and planting new beds of rhododendrons. The 
city erected a commodious and ornate band stand at Court 
House Park, which was greatly needed. The old hedge 



328 CITY OF CONCORD. 

has been removed and some grading done on these "grounds. 
The new work proposed is the continuance of the iron 
fence along Centre Street at White Park regrading the 
playground. 

The development of playgrounds, which is being so 
widely noticed, has been considered somewhat and is 
worthy of a closer study. 

We have already at Rollins and White Parks opportuni- 
ties to make the experiment. However, to get the best re- 
sults, it demands some equipment and a supervision so that 
the results shall not be haphazard. The marked success in 
other cities should lead us to consider it carefully. Other 
places could be found where the result would no doubt be 
such as to bring success. A large number of boys and 
young men gather at the extreme north end, on North State 
Street, where if some ground could be secured and ar- 
ranged for baseball and other sports under competent 
supervision, it would undoubtedly prove successful. The 
question arises whether this should not be considered and 
a trial made.

HIGHWAY DEPARTTIENT. 



REPORT OF COMMISSIONER OF HIGHWAYS. 



To the City Council: 

Gentlemen, — In submitting the annual report of the 
highway department for 1908, aside from a review of the 
work done, I can only repeat what I have already said in 
previous reports, that the demands made upon this depart- 
ment and the cost of labor are increasing every year with- 
out any increase in appropriations. While the work done 
under such appropriations as permanent work, new con- 
crete walks and repairing concrete can be regulated by the 
amount raised, it is from general maintenance appropria- 
tion that the greatest number of demands must be met. 
Every citizen, in asking for repairs, thinks his particular 
street is the worst in the city and feels that his request 
should receive immediate attention, while probably there 
are many places in as bad or even worse condition. And 
so, though the department would gladly attend to every 
call if there were appropriation enough, with the amount 
which we have the commissioner is obliged to hold the 
people back and attend to those things which in his judg- 
ment are the most in need of attention. 

It was necessary to do considerable work on bridges last 
summer. The Horse Hill and Federal bridges were painted 
and the Pembroke and Se wall's Falls shingled. The cost 
of painting was $342.30 and the shingling $1,753.80, and 
both amounts had to be taken from general maintenance. 
Next season the two bridges at Penacook and the Loudon 
bridge will have to be painted and all three re-planked.

334 CITY OF CONCORD. 

For permanent work in 1908, nearly a mile of macadam 
was put in on the South Pembroke road, extending from 
that built in 1907 to the Gas House bridge. The work was 
contracted at a cost of $3,250 to the city. There is now a 
fine boulevard from the bridge to the Pembroke line. The 
towns of Loudon and Hopkinton have put in pieces of state 
road w T hich come to their town lines and they are anxious 
to have the road continued within the city limits. Mac- 
adam was also put in on South Main Street from Freight 
to Concord on the east side and from Freight to Hill's 
Avenue on the east side. This was an old macadam road 
which was completely worn out. The work of repairing 
it should be continued another season to connect with the 
state road. The granite block paving on North Main Street 
just north of the Eagle Hotel and from Pleasant to Warren 
Street was taken up and concrete laid. This does away 
with all the block paving from Pleasant to Park Street. 
Another section of macadam was put in on North State 
Street past Calvary cemetery, and it is a great improve- 
ment. At Penacook, the macadam should be carried to the 
town line to complete the work on the Penacook road. At 
the other end of the Penacook road near West Concord 
cemetery a piece of macadam should be put in to connect 
with that farther north. Fiske Street, from Church to 
Walker, also needs repairing. It is in very bad condition 
and should be macadamized. 

Some experiments were made last summer with tar for 
preserving the surface of macadam roads and also as a pre- 
ventative of dust. While the work is still in the experi- 
mental stage, thus far, tar has proved to be the best thing 
on the market. 

Not so much work was done on catch basins as usual. 
The following table shows the location, etc., of the new 
ones:

A larger number of concrete walks were repaired last 
season as the appropriation was increased to $2,000 and 
the usual amount of new walks were granted and laid. 
The following regulation was voted by the board of mayor 
and aldermen, June 8, 1908 : 

' ' Voted, That the commissioner of highways be instructed 
as follows : Upon the granting of petitions for new concrete 
sidewalks, he shall notify the abuttor of the cost of such 
sidewalk and receive one half such amount from such abut- 
tor before he shall construct such walk. ' ' 

While Concord is fortunate in possessing beautiful trees 
it is unfortunate in having the brown-tail moth, which has 
been a considerable expense to property owners as well as 
the city. But the condition of the trees in Concord during 
the summer testified to the fact that the city and owners 
of real estate worked to exterminate the pest. Undoubtedly 
we shall be obliged to continue doing the same work for 
several years in order to rid ourselves of them. Should the 



336 CITY OP CONCORD. 

gypsy moth and elm tree beetle reach us we shall have a 
still more serious problem before us. Each year a number 
of dead trees are removed, and should this continue with- 
out replacing any of them we shall soon notice the loss. 
In New Jersey, the planting and care of all shade trees 
is in the hands of a commission. Where shade trees are to 
be set out the commission decides on the kind though the 
property owners are consulted as to their choice. A much 
better appearance is gained where only one kind of tree is 
planted than where several are found. 

No change has been made in the collection of garbage, 
and about the same amount was collected as in 1907. At 
the request of the Woman's Club, the city council appro- 
priated the sum of $50 for installing refuse cans on Main 
Street. Twenty-four cans were put up at an expense of 
$132.47. They do"much for the good appearance of the 
business section. 

There is a demand each year to have the sprinkling pre- 
cinct extended. Should the various petitions for its ex- 
tension, now under consideration, be granted, it will be 
necessary to purchase two new sprinklers. From the 
mayor, city council and the various city officials, this de- 
partment has received many courtesies which I greatly 
appreciate. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALFRED CLARK, 
Commissioner of Highways.

REPORT OF CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council: 

I respectfully submit the following report for the year 
1908 : 

On December 31, 1907, the following suits against the 
city of Concord were pending in court: Concord Street 
Railway v. Concord, an appeal taken by the Concord Street 
Railway from an award of damages to it by the board of 
mayor and aldermen upon the laying out of a highway in 
Penacook; Joseph Stickney v. Concord, a petition for an 
abatement of taxes for the year 1900; Joseph Stickney v. 
Concord, a petition for an abatement of taxes for the year 
1901 ; Jennie P. Martin v. Concord, a suit to recover dam- 
ages for injury to the plaintiff's real estate on the corner of 
South State and Downing Streets which she claims has 
been caused by the backing up of water and sewage by 
reason of an insufficient and defective sewer; Louis A. En- 
gel v. Concord and the Boston & Maine Railroad, a suit 
to recover damages on account of a change in the grade of 
North State Street in West Concord; Carolyn F. Stickney 
v. Concord, a petition for the assessment of damages on 
account of the laying out and construction of a sewer from 
North Main Street through her land to the river. This is 
an appeal from an award of three hundred dollars damages 
made to her by the board of mayor and aldermen ; John N. 
Lane v. Concord, a writ of entry in which the plaintiff 
claims that in the recent improvements on the road leading 
to St. Paul's School the city has encroached upon and 
taken some of his land without right. 

The cases of Concord Street Railway, Joseph Stickney, 



384 CITY OF CONCORD. 

Jennie P. Martin, Carolyn F. Stickney, and John N. Lane 
have not been pressed by the plaintiffs and no progress 
has been made in them since my last report. The case of 
Louis A. Engel has been settled by the Boston & Maine 
Railroad. 

At the time of my last report the case of the Woodsum 
Steamboat Company v. Sunapee was pending in the su- 
preme court. The city of Concord was interested in this 
case as explained in that report. The supreme court de- 
cided that the city of Concord was not entitled to tax the 
boats of the "Woodsum Steamboat Company. 

At the October term, 1908, of the superior court, Asa 
Emery filed a petition appealing from an order of the 
board of mayor and aldermen widening and straightening 
North State Street at a point opposite land belonging to 
said Emery. This case has not been disposed of. 

I have, during the year, prosecuted many criminal cases 
for the police department before the police court. I have 
given advice and assistance, when required, to the board 
of assessors, to the various departments of the city govern- 
ment, and to committees and members of the city council. 
Respectfully submitted, 

EDMUND S. COOK, 

City Solicitor.
