EEPORT OF THE SELECTMEN. 



The undersigned, Selectmen, Overseers of the 
Poor, Board of Health, and Surveyors of Highways, 
at the close of the third year of their official duties, 
would respectfully submit the Twenty-Ninth Annual 
Heport of the Expenditures and Receipts of the 
Town of Dorchester, for the year ending January 
31st, 1867, and also oifer such explanations and 
suggestions as to them seem proper. 

e Schools. 

The expenditures for the maintenance of schools 
have much exceeded the amount appropriated, includ- 
ing the income from school property. The reasons 
will be fully, and, we doubt not, satisfactorily 
explained by the School Committee in their report, all 
expenditures on account of schools being under the 
direction of that Committee. 

Poor iis^ the Almshouse. 

In the early part of the year, Mr. John Keen, then 
superintendent, resigned his position, and it was a 
source of anxiety to us to know how to fill the 
vacancies of superintendent and matron thus made, by 
those who were fitted by experience and temperament 



for those important trusts. We are glad to be able to 
report that, by securing the services of Capt. Charles 
Spear and his wife, the present superintendent and 
matron, we have our anxieties removed, and we feel 
that the care of and attention to the inmates, although 
very much increased while the alterations were being 
made in the almshouse, have not been abated, nor has 
the general comfort of the occupants suffered by the 
change. 

Capt. Spear, as a superintendent of workmen on 
the highways, in his care of stock, and as an adviser 
in repairing streets, has given us most complete 
satisfaction. 

It has been our endeavor to make the almshouse a 
comfortable home for those of our people who are 
necessitated to live there ; we believe, making due 
allowance for age and infirmities, that it is as happy a 
home as a majority of those in the town. The alter- 
ation made in the building has added ten comfortable 
sleeping rooms, and a large sitting-room or hall, which 
may be used as a chapel for religious services on 
Sundays, clergymen of our town, and other persons, 
having kindly ofiered to ofiiciate. 

The general health of the inmates has been good 
the past 3^ear. But one death has occurred; that of a 
person who was taken there when quite sick with 
consumption. The gratitude expressed by him for 
the kind attentions he received from the superintend- 
ent and the matron, and his oft-repeated wish that 
he had come sooner, gave us the pleasant assurance 
that the comfort and welfare of the inmates are well 



attended to by those in charge, and that our alms- 
house is not the much-to-be-dreaded last resort which 
the poor and needy often think it to be. • The present 
number of inmates is seventeen; admitted during the 
year, six; discharged, eight. 

One female was sent to the institution from the jail 
at Dedham, under the provisions of chapter 178, sec- 
tion 16, General Statutes, whose sickness was a 
source of considerable trouble and expense. We 
expect the county will pay the expenses incurred for 
nursing and the physician's bill, in addition to the 
compensation named in the law before mentioned. 

The number of persons furnished temjDorarily with 
food and lodging the past year is four hundred and 
fourteen. The number seems large, but we still feel, 
as was stated in a former report, that the town can 
better afford to lodge and feed such persons than to 
turn them away to annoy our citizens by begging 
food and shelter. Second or third comers of this 
class will be complained of as vagrants or vagabonds, 
(unless they can give satisfactory excuses,) under the 
provisions of chapter 235, Acts of 1866. The cost of 
the alterations has slightly exceeded the appropriation, 
but we feel that the expenditures were demanded for 
the comfort of the inmates, and also that the building 
is creditable to the town. 

Poor out of the Almshouse. 

The expenditures under this head have, as was 
anticipated, been increased by the operation of the 



6 



law of 1865 relating to the settlement of soldiers and 
their families. 

The expenditure for coal was large. Anticipating 
the rise in price and an increased demand, we pur- 
chased and paid for seventy-five tons, and have now 
on hand a little more than half of the purchase. 
Deducting the value of the coal now on hand from 
the whole amount expended will leave a balance of 
the appropriation unexpended. 

Ii^^SAJSTE iN^ Hospitals. 

The number of persons supported in different 
hospitals at the expense of the town the past year is 
eight; discharged, one; escaped, one. 

The amount of expenditures for these unfortunates 
we cannot control. These persons cannot be proj)erly 
provided for at our almshouse. 

Highways. 

We have expended a much larger sum for the 
repair of the highways this year than was appro- 
priated. The streets in all parts of the town have 
been kept in as good order as could be done with the 
labor of two large gangs of men, under charge of 
Capt. Spear and Mr. T. P. Lucas, employed from 
April to December. The compliments the town has 
received for the great improvement in the condition 
of its streets, and the thanks expressed by our towns- 
men, assured us that, although a large sum of money 
was being expended, the town would be better pleased 
with the expenditure and good roads than with a 



smaller sum expended, less work done, and poorer 
roads. The experience of the past season has satisfied 
us that the town has adopted the best course in 
owning the teams employed upon the repair of its 
highways, more work being done, and in a more satis- 
factory manner, in this way than by hiring teams. 
The town has now seven horses, one yoke of oxen, 
carts, stone drags, harnesses and tools, worth nearly 
or quite f 4,000, on hand, ready for work in the spring, 
the horses and oxen earning their keeping through 
the winter. 

The construction of a large culvert on Washington 
Street, at the Lower Mills village, from near Rich- 
mond Hall to near Dorchester Avenue, at an expense 
of nearly f 1,400; also the grading of High and 
Taylor Streets, widening and grading a part of Com- 
mercial Street, a part of !N^eponset Avenue, a part of 
River Street and a part of Boston Street; are included 
in the expenditures for highways. The pay of the 
laborers upon the highways has been $1.75 per day 
each. When our citizens remember the number of 
miles of roadway in the town to be kept in repair, 
and the constantly increasing travel, they must be 
aware that no small sum of money can keep them in 
good order. Although so much work has been done 
on the highways, and that work distributed all over 
the town, the calls of our citizens for still further* 
repairs and improvements have been many and 
pressing. 



8 



We feel that we should be unjust if we should omit 
to say we have been abundantly satisfied with the 
services rendered by Mr. T. P. Lucas. 

Cemeteries. 

• 

. As long ago as April, 1853, the subject of pur- 
chasing land for a new cemetery, or for enlarging the 
present ones, was considered in town meeting, but no 
land has as yet been bought. The time when absolute 
necessity will require the purchase of another cem- 
etery lot, or the enlargement of the present lots, is 
near at hand. By an Act of the Legislature, passed 
last winter, the town has the power granted to obtain 
land adjoining the present cemeteries, upon certain 
conditions. During the past summer we have had a 
small number of lots in the north cemetery graded, 
and granite bound posts set. These lots we have 
granted (but only in cases of imperative need,) to our 
citizens, upon the payment to the town of fifteen 
dollars for each lot taken, to defray the expense 
incurred. 

A committee of the Dorchester Antiquarian and 
Historical Society was authorized by us to reset and 
recut a number of the monumental stones of the fore- 
fathers and earliest settlers of this town. It is very 
desirable that these stones, marking the resting places 
of the honored dead, should be carefully preserved. 
The very marked improvement in the appearance of 
our cemeteries within the last few years is creditable, 
and should continue. 



FiEE Department. 

The report of the Chief Eiigmeer of this depart- 
ment is annexed. A steam fire engine is being built 
by Messrs. Hunneman & Co. for this town, and a 
brick engiile-honse is building for its reception. "We 
congratulate the town upon the infrequency of fires 
the past year. 

Lighting Streets. 

Many new lamp-posts and lamps have been erected 
by our citizens the past year, which lamps are lighted 
at the expense of the town. 

Total expenditure for lighting streets the past year, 

650.31. 



Police and "Watchmen. 

The expenditure for police services has been but 
1473.00. . 

This small sum has been sufficient for the purpose, 
although included in that amount is a considerable 
sum paid for serving notices, issued by the Board of 
Health to landlords and occupants, to abate nuisances 
on their jDremises the past summer. 

We are of the opinion that the good order and 
quiet of our town, whereby the expenditure of a 
larger sum was uncalled for, is in a great degree 
attributable to the enforcement of the prohibitory 
liquor law. 



10 

State Aid to Soldieks and Soldiers' Fajviilies. 

By an Act of the Legislature of 1866, approved 
April 23, 1866, we have been obliged to pay to dis- 
abled soldiers and their families, and to families of 
the slain, $29,272.00, that amount being distributed to 
two hundred and eighty-six applicants under this law, 
and eight persons under former laws. This sum we 
had no anticipation of being obliged to pay when the 
appropriations were voted by the town. "We have 
endeavored to do justice to all, and havS been gov- 
erned by the law, as we understand it, and by the 
advice of the Auditor of the Commonwealth in his 
circular. This expenditure is to be re-imbursed by 
the State on or before December 1, 1867. 

I:n^cide]s^tal a^s^d Gej^ekal Remarks. 

Under the head of incidental expenditures has been 
paid : For stock and labor on JSTorfolk Bridge, $350; 
to jSr. W. Tileston, Esq., for services preparing the 
Bebellion Record, $243.12; to Samuel Blake, Esq., 
for examining and copying records at Dedham, Bos- 
ton, Cambridge and other places, for the use of the 
assessors, $127.50. Also paid for abating a nuisance 
on premises at JSTeponset Tillage, by order of the 
Board of Health, $266.50. This bill is a lien upon 
the premises, and is in course of collection. In three 
cases the town has been sued by as many persons for 
damages, alleged to have occurred from defects in the 
highways, &c. In each, the prosecutor was non- 
suited. Messrs. H: A. Scudder and A. C. Clark have 



11 



been paid $80 for legal advice and services- in these 
cases. 

Spring Lane, a town way, has been made passable 
at a cost of |127.50. 

By an arrangement with the land owners on Boston 
Street whose land was taken by the County Commis- 
sioners to widen said street, instead of building a 
heavy stone wall to hold the filling, we have made an 
earth embankment and built a fence on the line of the 
street, at a cost, for fencing, of f 231. A stone wall 
has been built on K-iver Street, near the crossing of 
the Boston and Providence Railroad, to hold filling 
for widening said street, which, by a misunderstanding 
between our Board and the engineer who had the 
oversight, was much more expensive than was neces- 
sary. 'No work has as yet been done on the new 
street ordered to be built by the County Commission- 
ers at Hyde Park; it must be commenced as soon as 
the spring opens. Fairmount Avenue must be graded 
to correspond to that ordered by the Commissioners 
when that avenue was laid out. 

The bridge across ]N^epouset Piver, from Hyde 
Park to Milton, (Fairmount,) should be rebuilt the 
coming summer. We are of the opinion that it is for 
the interest of the towns of Milton and Dorchester to 
build a bridge of stone rather than another of wood. 

The draw in Tenean Bridge, at Commercial Point, 
having become so much out of repair as to be unsafe, 
(a heavily loaded team narrowly escaping falling 
through,) we were obliged to thoroughly rebuild it. 
from foundation to planking, at an expense of about 



12 



$2,000. jThe remainder of this bridge must, in a few 
years, be rebuilt, as we find some of the piles are 
nearly rotted off. It seems to us that if the Legis- 
lature would grant the town the right to make all the. 
bridge, excej^ting, perhaps, a small portion near the 
draw, of solid material, it would be best to do so. 

The Town Treasurer has been obliged by law to 
pay $519, on account of the militia "pay rolls of the 
Dorchester Hifles, which sum is to be refunded by the 
State. 

A settlement has been effected with the Boston, 
Hartford and Erie Railroad Company, for labor done 
in raising the crossings of their railroad on Stoughton, 
Harvard and ]N'orfolk Streets. We congratulate the 
town and that corporation upon the prospect of 
success which now appears to attend this hitherto 
unfortunate enterprise, and the probability that the 
town, which has so long been disfigured and discom- 
moded by the railroad track unused, is now to be 
accommodated and improved by the running of 
frequent trains over it at low fares. The officers of 
this corporation acknowledge that this town has been 
lenient and forbearing, and they agree, the coming 
summer, to replace the unsuitable bridges on Harvard 
and iN^orfolk Streets with more safe and substantial 
structures, and also to improve the ascents to the 
bridges. We anticipate a great improvement in the 
value of property on the line of this railroad in 
Dorchester within a few years. 

The amount of uncollected taxes for the year 1865 
in the hands of the Collector, is only $800. A very 



13 



large proportion of the tax for the year 1866 has been 
paid. 

The Town Treasurer has not as yet been obliged to 
borrow the f 15,000 which he was authorized to by 
vote of the special town meeting. The instalments 
due on the town debt, and the interest due, have been 
paid at maturity. The debt of the town has been 
decreased $9,000. Guide-boards for the direction of 
travellers are erected in all the streets where, in our 
opinion, they are necessary. With a continuance of 
the present good order, good roads, low taxes, and 
remarkable freedom from unhealthy or offensive trades 
in this town; with its unsurpassed beauty of scenery, 
pleasant drives, and proximity to and easy and 
frequent communication with Boston from all parts of 
the town, we have reason to expect a rapid increase 
in its wealth and population.

AUDITORS' REPORT. 

The Tindersigned hereby certify that we have examined the accounts 
of Thomas F. Temple, Treasurer, and find the .same correctly cast, and 
all expenditures and payments are sustained by the necessary vouchers. 

There has been received by the Treasurer, from all sources, the past 
year, including the balance on hand February 1, 1866, three hundred 
seventeen thousand four hundred seventy and j%\ dollars, and there has 
been paid from the treasury, during the same time, two hundred ninety- 
four thousand seven hundred sixty-four and yf^ dollars, leaving in the 
treasury February 1, 1867, twenty-two thousand seven hundred six and 
j^^Q dollars, as shown by the above account. 

W. F. TEMPLE, 
GEORGE HAYNES, 

Auditors. 
Dorchester, February 1, 1867. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 

To the Selectmen of Dorchester : — 

Gentlemen, — As one of the duties of the Chief Engineer of the 
Fire Department, I herewith present to you the Eighteenth Annual 
Report of its condition, the amount of expenditures under the direction 
of the Board of Engineers ; also the record of fires and alarms that 
have occurred during the past year. 

I am happy to state we have not been called upon to extinguish ^res 
in town but six times, and can congratulate your board and the town 
upon the small loss they have sustained by the dreaded element. 

The promptness and efficiency of the several companies, when they 
hav6 been called out, show that they can be depended upon in time of 
need, and are deserving of honorable mention. 

I would again suggest the necessity of reservoirs being built in differ- 
ent places in town, where a scarcity of water exists. The constantly 
increasing niimber of buildings being erected in many localities, must 
make it apparent to all that a timely supply of water may prevent a 
serious conflagration, should a fire occur in an unfavorable time. Let 
me at least recommend that a committee be chosen by the town to take 
the matter into consideration, to report at some future meeting. 



51 



In speaking of the condition of the several engines and apparatus 
belonging to the Department, it would be a neglect of duty on my part 
if I did not again call attention to the necessity of providing Engine Com- 
pany ]Jfo. 1, with a better apparatus for extinguishing fires than the old 
engine now used by them ; for it cannot be Avorked with that promptness 
and efficiency that may be required in its own district, and out of it, it 
is almost useless. 

Engine Company No. 2 has been provided with an engine and other 
apparatus most of the time the past year. The Board have done the 
best they could under existing circumstances, and hope that the new 
house and engine will be completed and added to the Department by the 
first of April. 

No. 3 Engine has been put in thorough repair and painted the past 
year ; also an addition made to the house, and the inside sheathed 
and re-plastered. "With the exception of painting the outside, it is hoped 
that it will not be of much expense for some time to come. 

No. 4 Engine House will require some repairs inside the present 
season. This house is in the town of Milton, and many of the citi- 
zens of Mattapan have expre ssed their desire that it be removed across 
the river into Dorchester. It is a matter, I think, that should be brought 
before the town, before any action is taken. 

No. 5 Engine House will require shingling, and some repairs inside, 
this year. 

No. 6 Engine House has. had a new hose-tower built, and some 
improvements made inside ; also 350 feet of new leading hose has been 
purchased. It is hoped that this house and apparatus will not require 
much outlay for some years. 

The Hook and Ladder is in serviceable condition. 

The total amount of expenditures on account of the Department for 
the .past year, has been $3,976.54, viz. : For repairs, fixtures, &c., 
.$1,740.70 ; new hose, $821.50 ; salaries, $886.25 ; incidentals, $528.09. 

The Department is organized as follows : — 

Sylvester H. Hebard, Chief Engineer. 

Assistant-Engineers. 
George G. Dennis on, James T. Oliver, 

Henry Fobes, Nathaniel WithingtoN;^ 

Theodore Hersey.
