EEPORT or THE SELECTMEN. 



AdmonisTied by the. closing of the municipal year, 
that our townsmen will expect from this Board the 
report of their doings for the year past, and feeling 
that, however unsatisfactory to ourselves or our con- 
stituents has been our success in performing the 
duties of our new ofiices, we have at least the satisfac- 
tion of knowing that we have labored faithfully and 
honestly to perform the duties which have devolved 
on us, as Selectmen, Overseers of the Poor, Board of 
Health, and Surveyors of Highways; and would 
respectfully report as follows : — 

The past year has been one perhaps unprecedented, 
in the high cost of labor, materials, and provisions ; 
and we have endeavored to be as economical as 
possible, in our expenditure of the town's money ; per- 
haps in some instances, we may have overstepped the 
mark of true economy ; but if so, our excuse is, that 
we have had the well known fact so constantly brought 
home to each of us, that the tax-payers of the town 
were all feeling the constant call of our beloved 



country upon tliem for contributions, to assist in 
sustaining the glorious cause in which we are engaged. 

We cannot forbear congratulating the town upon the 
progress made during the past year, by our army and 
navy, towards the establishment of liberty and union. 
Traitors now tremble, and true men rejoice. Dorches- 
ter has nobly done her duty, in furnishing the aid and 
assistance required ; and most readily has she fui:nished 
the sinews of war, by making appropriations of money, 
with which to assist the willing hearts and hands of 
those who were ready to enlist in the place of others, 
whose business, family relations, or other circum- 
stances, required them to remain at home. The quota 
of the town has been kept full, with an overplus. 

A large amount of money is spent annually by the 
town, in the payment of State Aid, to the families of 
volunteers ; as this money is paid to the families 
monthly, and refunded by the State only once a year, 
the town is of necessity obliged to pay a large sum 
annually, for interest on the money so paid out ; but 
when we consider how much relief is thus afforded 
and how much the volunteer's home is brightened, 
the town can well afford the expense. The labor of 
distributing the State aid is no small tax upon the 
time of this Board, as aid is now paid to 293 fami- 
lies. The amount paid from February 1, 1864, to 
March 1, 1865, was $ 19,373. Great care is necessary 
to guard against illegal payments ; the State refunds 
no money illegally paid, and cases are liable to occur 



where the desertion or discharge of a soldier is not 
reported promptly by the officer whose duty it is to 
make the return. This Board has no means of obtain- 
ing the information, other than through the State 
authorities ; which, when furnished, dates back to the 
time of desertion or discharge ; and the town is liable 
to lose any money which may have been paid for, aid, 
after the date therein mentioned. 

SCHOOLS. 

The expenditures on account of schools have largely 
exceeded the appropriation ; but the Board have not 
felt at liberty to decline the payment of bills approved 
by the School Committee, especially as all the bills 
appear to have been necessarily incurred, a large 
amount of the excess being for heating apparatus, 
removing steam apparatus and substituting hot-air 
furnaces, a change, in our opinion, not too soon made. 
The cost of painting the schoolhouses has been no 
inconsiderable bill. The price paid for coal has also 
been higher than was anticipated. The amount of 
S 2,653.83, has been paid on account of Hyde Park 
School building, for which no appropriation was made 
bv the town. The schoolhouse on Commercial Street 
was offered at auction, but no satisfactory bid being 
made it was not sold.

POOR IN ALMSHOUSE. 



This Establishment is under the superintendence of 
Mr. John Keen and his wife, both of whom the Board 
know to be admirably suited to their situation. Mr. 
Keen has also been employed as an overseer of the 
men engaged in the repairs of highways. His expe- 
rience and ability as Superintendent have been a great 
assistance to the Board in the performance of their 
duties. 

Mrs. Keen as matron, is peculiarly adapted by tem- 
perament and experience to the situation she so accept- 
ably fills ; the poor, aged, and unfortunate, find in her 
a friend and helper, and she is beloved and respected 
by all the inmates of the establishment. 

The Almshouse, Lockup, and some of the out-build- 
ings, were found to be sadly in need of repairs, and 
have been shingled at a considerable cost. This ex- 
pense was not anticipated by the Board, but was found 
unavoidable. The high cost of subsistence the past 
year is well known to all housekeepers. To the good 
care which the inmates have received, we feel is at- 
tributable, in a great degree, the almost uninterrupted 
good health enjoyed by them. 

A sick female, not having a settlement in the town, 
was brought here by one of our citizens for a tempo- 
rary refuge, and before she could be taken to the State 
Almshouse, she became too sick to be removed there 
without endangering her life ; this was almost the only 



case of sickness in the establishment the past year. 
The number of inmates Feb. 1, 1864, was thirteen. 
Eleven have been admitted, nine discharged ; present 
number, fifteen. One man is serving out a three 
months' sentence at the establishment as a vagrant* 
One hundred and sixty-three transient persons have 
been furnished with one or more meals and lodgings. 
In all cases where a person is committed to the Lock- 
up for safe keeping, a small fee is charged for food 
and lodging ; the filthy, and oftentimes shocking state 
in which the rooms are left by the occupants, renders 
this charge necessary. This fee is added to the bill of 
costs by the officers, when the person is sentenced by 
the Trial Justice. A fee is also charged persons 
brought to the Lock-up for lodging when intoxicated, 
if the person lodged is able to pay for it. The cells 
of the Lock-up at the Almshouse being unfit aan 
unsafe for the confinement of unruly criminals, we 
recommend more secure cells should be made. 

Among the payments made on account of the Alms- 
house, is a bill paid Moses Glark, of Boston, for 
grain and meal bought in the summer and fall of 
1863, amounting to $ 142.52, and other bills, amount- 
ing to nearly or quite as large a sum, for articles 
bought and used that year. 

POOR OUT OF THE ALMSHOUSE. 

The calls upon our Board for assistance, in furnish- 
ing coal and wood, have been very pressing and con- 



8 



tinuons. It was intended not to furnish fuel to any 
who had not a settlement in some town in Massa- 
chusetts, but the urgency of the calls for only tem- 
porary assistance from some, and their extreme un- 
willingness to go to the State Almshouse, caused us, 
in a number of cases, to break over a rule which we 
found could not be rigidly carried out, with a due 
regard to humanity. We may, and probably have 
been, in some instances, imposed upon ; in fact, we 
are sure, that assistance has been persistently asked 
for, by those who had the means to procure for them- 
selves, would they only draw from their Savings Bank 
deposits. If the miserable pauper factories, the grog 
shops, could be closed up, many a poor unfortunate 
could and would support himself and family com- 
fortably, whose family is now in want. 

INSANE IN HOSPITALS. 

Six persons, during the past year, have been sup- 
ported by the town at the different insane hospitals ; 
one has been discharged. The case of Miss M. B. 
Randall, daughter of Hev. E. Eandall, whose settle- 
ment in Dorchester we were obliged to acknowledge, 
was unknown to us when the appropriations were 
made in April last. The bill for her support, amount- 
ing to ^179.71, also the increased sum now charged 
for board in the Hospitals, have caused the expen- 
diture of a lar^rer sum than the appropriation made. 



HIGHWAYS. 

The duties of Surveyors of Highways, so entir.ely 
new to us, we have endeavored to perform to the 
satisfaction of the travelling public. We have been 
greatly assisted by Mr. Keen, and Mr. Fobes, whom 
we employed to superintend the repairs ; their ex- 
perience has been of great value to ns. Believing 
it better for the town to own its own teams, as far 
as practicable, we bought one yoke of oxen, two 
horses, and two new carts, which the town now owns, 
and can sell at an advance on the cost, should it be 
thought best so to do. 

Brush-Hill Avenue has been gravelled almost its 
entire length, in this town, and is now in excellent 
order for travel ; the streets in the southerly part of 
the town are mostly in excellent order. Dorchester 
Avenue, from Boston line to Field's Corner, needs 
much more attention. In consequence of the altera- 
tion a few years ago, in the grade of this street, be- 
tween Crescent Avenue and Savin Hill Avenue, by 
which alteration almost all the material which had been 
for years past spread upon the street, was removed, 
there is not now suihcient hard material, over the loamy 
and sandy sub-soil, to support the heavy teaming, con- 
stantly passing over that street ; and further, the loca- 
tion of the horse railway in the centre of the street, 
with the block stones by the outside of the rails, so 
constantly out of repair, have made that Avenue a 

2 



10 



source of great annoyance to us, and the travelling 
public. The Board are of the opinion, that the public 
good requires that the horse railway track upon that 
Avenue should be removed from the centre to the east 
side of the Avenue, so that the travelling road can be 
properly graded. Sidewalks are very much needed in 
many parts of the town. In that part of Dorchester 
Avenue between Adams Street and Park Street, a cul- 
vert has been laid, with the expectation that it will 
drain the water from the street, so as to make it more 
passable in the Spring of the year, and also to enable 
those living in the houses abutting, to drain their cel- 
lars, a late widening of the Avenue, we are informed, 
having seriously injured their former drainage. The 
total cost of constructing the culvert was f 274.84, and 
the abutting property owners agree to pay one half its 
cost. 

The Board has bought of Mr. Charles Breck a lot of 
gravel land, adjoining a lot owned by the town on Com- 
mercial Street, at a cost of ^ 1,516.50 ; this we consider 
a very advantageous purchase for the town ; the want 
of good gravel for roads will be constantly and increas- 
ingly felt. The street from Mill Street to Commercial 
Point, called the " Preston Koad," has been put in good 
passable order, and should be finished the coming 
Spring. 

Piles have been driven by the side of the street over 
the marsh from Port Norfolk to Commercial Street, 
upon which planking is to be nailed, and the street 



11 

raised to a height above high-water mark, and made 
safe and comfortable for travel. The public travel is 
very seriously incommoded by the crossings of the Bos- 
ton, Hartford, and Erie Eaih'oad. On Eiver Street, the 
County Commissioners ordered a bridge to be built so 
as to carry the travel on the highway over the railroad. 
This bridge and crossing, when the Hailroad Company 
shall have properly fenced the sides of the embank- 
ments, will be quite safe and satisfactory. The bridges 
built by the Railroad Company on Harvard and Norfolk 
streets, have been done without consulting the Town, 
and without the direction of the County Commissioners, 
as to the manner of their construction ; they are too 
narrow, being only about 20| feet wide ; and we con- 
sider them unfit and dangerous. The earth embank- 
ments are also improperly constructed, and we have 
notified the Company that we so consider them, and 
shall hold the Company responsible for all damage. 
The crossings at Washington, Green, Columbia, and 
Cottage streets, we are assured will soon be constructed 
in a satisfactory manner. The crossing at Stoughton 
Street has been made a grade crossing, by raising the 
highway. This has not been done to our satisfaction, 
the Company having narrowed the street, and made 
the ascent too steep. We believe the County Commis- 
sioners will cause the Railroad Company to make a 
good and easy grade of ascent, and to restore the street 
to its original width ; also to protect the public travel 
by establishing gates and a flag-man. 



12 



We have hesitated to push this Company to do all 
that was considered necessary to be done, knowing that 
they labored under peculiar disadvantages; and we 
have been assured that the public safety shall be at- 
tended to, and the wishes of the town fully met, as 
soon as possible. The road, when completed and in 
use, we believe, will be of very great advantage, and 
therefore we have felt, that although the town does 
now suffer in consequence of the unfinished state of 
the bridges and crossings, it can afford to wait until the 
coming summer for their completion. 

The Board have, by an order, established a code of 
Rules and Regulations relative to the use and manage- 
ment of the street railways in the town, which, if com- 
plied with, we believe, will be beneficial to both the 
Raiboad Company and the public. • 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

Ey reference to the Report of the Chief Engineer of 
the Fire Department, it will be found, that although 
not so large and expensive as Departments of this kind 
are in most large towns, still, it is efiacient and service- 
able. 

NOTES AND INTEREST. 

We have thought it best to report in full, all pay- 
ments which have been made on account of temporary 

or permanent loans, and have done so. 



13 



ABATEMENT OF TAXES. 

In consequence of an alteration in the statute law, 
causing the taxes on stock in Banks and other corpora- 
tions to be paid to the State, instead of the towns, a 
larger number and amount of abatements were made 
than was anticipated by the assessors. 

LICENSE OF DOGS. 

The money from this source which has until this year 
been paid into the Town Treasury, is now paid to the 
County Treasurer. 

PERAMBULATION OF TOWN LINES. 

During the past year, the boundary lines between 
this town and the towns and cities adjoining, have been 
perambulated, and the bound marks examined, and 
renewed ; record of the same has been made according 
to law. 

ADDITION TO TOWN HALL. 

Feeling the immediate necessity of additional ac- 
commodations for voters at town meetings, and be- 
lieving the town not yet ready to build a new Town 
Hall, the Board have caused an addition to the south- 
erly side of the Town Hall to be made ; we think the 
additional room and accommodations obtained will 
fully compensate for the expense incurred. 



14 



TOWN OFFICERS ROOMS. 

The room at the Almshouse, heretofore used by the 
Selectmen and School Committee for their office, has, 
for years, been found inconveniently small : the School 
Committee having been often obliged to use two or 
three rooms, to the inconvenience of the Committee, 
as well as the occupants of the almshouse. At the 
suggestion of a number of our citizens, the Board 
rented rooms in the new building owned by J. H. 
Robinson, Esq., at Field's Corner. The location being 
quite central, and accessible from all parts of the town, 
we believe the convenience of our citizens, and others 
having business at the office, as well as the comfort of 
the Town officers, will amply repay the expense. 

POLICE AND WATCH. 

The depredations committed in many gardens and 
orchards by boys and others from the neighboring 
cities, as well as the robbery of many unoccupied 
dwellings, have made it necessary to employ a larger 
number of police and watchmen than usual, and the 
expenditure in this I?epartment has largely exceeded 
the appropriation. 

The accumulation of books in the Assessors' Office, 
the loss of which would be irreparable, requires that 
the Assessors should be provided with a larger fire- 
proof safe the coming season. 

A great amount of time and labor have been spent 
in correcting the enrolment list of the town, and it 



15 



is believed that the quotas of the town, under future 
calls for troops, will be reduced to a more equitable 
number than before, w^hen compared with the quotas 
of other towns. 

Under the head of Incidental Expenses, is included 
the amount paid" for gravel land bought of C. Breck, 
and referred to under the head of Highways. 

The Board would suggest to the town, the neces- 
sity of having some Town Officer at the Selectmen's 
and Assessors' Rooms, during a certain part of every 
working day. The business of this town (the largest 
in the Commonwealth) is great, and constantly increas- 
ing, and the inconvenience often experienced by those 
having business with the town, in finding its officers, 
is very annoying. 

If the office of Town Clerk and Town Treas- 
urer could be filled by the same person, and he could 
be found at the Selectmen's Room every forenoon, 
the necessity would be met, and the annoyance, in a 
great measure, removed. 

Guideposts, with guideboards upon them, for the 
direction of travellers, are erected in all the streets 
and ways within the town, where, in our opinion, it 
is necessary they should be maintained.
