The Thirtieth Annual Report of the Receipts and 
Expenditures of the Town of Dorchester, being for 
the year ending January 31st, 1868, and the fourth 
of our official duties, is respectfully submitted. 

Schools. 
The amount expended by the School 

Committee for schools has been. 
The amount raised by tax for same. 
Derived from income of Town School 

Funds, ...... 

Received from the State, 

PooE KT Almshouse. 
The same superintendent and matron have had 
the charge of the establishment as last year, and 
have continued to give satisfaction by their attention 
to the wants of the household. Mr. Spear, in addi- 
tion to the duties of superintendent, has had the 
oversight of all the workmen on the highways the 
past season, and has acquitted himself to our entire 
satisfaction. There has been some sickness at the 
almshouse the past year. Three persons have died'^' 
— two aged females, and one young lad who - 
admitted temporarily, but who was found to bf'^^^'^ 
sick with consumption to be removed to the k.-^^^® 



almshouse. There are now two persons here who 
were sent from the jail at Dedham, boarding at the 
expense of the county of ]!!^orfolk, and another 
female who was found in distress in the street and 
brought to the establishment by one of oi;r physi- 
cians. The last named female we expect will soon 
be provided for elsewhere. 

The present number of inmates, including those 
temporarily boarding, is nineteen. Discharged dur- 
ing the past year, two. Three hundred eighty-eight 
travellers and vagrants have been temporarily pro- 
vided with lodgings and food. 

The lockrup has been remodelled and made more 
comfortable and secure. Besides six single cells 
on the lower floor, there are three double cells and 
a secure and comfortable room for the safe-keeping 
of insane persons on the second floor. These have 
been constructed on the same plan as that adopted 
in our neighboring cities. 

All the teams employed in the repair of highways, 
and the two horses belonging to the fire department, 
are kept in the stable at the almshouse, and they 
show Mr. Spear's careful attention. The horses 
belonging to the fire department are kept at work 
on the highways within a short distance of the 
steam fire engine, so as to be ready at all times 
for duty. 

POOE OUT OF THE ALMSHOUSE. 

e amount expended the past year under this 
^ has been |2,539.74:. A few persons who have 



no legal settlement in this town, and who were only 
in need of temporary assistance, have been provided 
with some fuel and provisions. The amount appro- 
priated by the town was $3,500. 

IiNTSAiq-E IIS' Hospitals. 

The number of persons wholly or partially sup- 
ported by the town in different hospitals is six, viz. : 
at Boston, one; at "Worcester, two; at Taunton, two; 
at ^N^orthampton, one. 

Highways. 

A stone-crushing machine and a steam-engine for 
working it have been purchased and put in operation 
the past season. Many of the streets in town have 
been dressed with the material from the crusher, 
and we think nothing better can be used. We have 
now ready for use over two thousand loads prepared 
during the winter for spring work. Both the crusher 
and engine are provided with wheels, and can be 
removed in the spring to any part of the town where 
needed, and put in operation. 

From a careful computation made by Mr. Spear, 
we are satisfied that the material prepared by the 
crusher costs not over thirty cents a load ready for 
distribution. With a gang of fourteen men, there 
can be quarried and crushed ready for removal over 
one hundred loads per day. 

Fairmount Avenue has been graded to conform 
with the order of the county commissioners. The 



new street from Mother Brook across Eiver Street to 
Hyde Park Avenue, has been very nearly completed. 
West Street has been finished. The crossing of 
River Street over the Boston and Providence Pail- 
road has been very much improved. Piver Street has 
also been widened near the Gary estate at Hyde Park. 
Commercial Street and Mill Street at their intersec- 
tion have been greatly improved by widening and 
changing the grade. Cottage Street has been 
widened near the Five Corners. JN^eponset Avenue has 
been widened near Mr. J. T. Murphy's shop, and a 
fence should be built there in the spring. The grade 
of Dorchester Avenue from Crescent Avenue to the 
residence of Mr. John J. May, has been changed and 
made much better; this avenue from Crescent Avenue 
to Satin Hill Avenue, has been very materially 
improved. We think Dorchester Avenue has never 
been in as good condition as at present; in fact all the 
streets in town are in good condition, better we think 
than at the commencement of the year. We feel sure 
no more economical or better plan can be adopted for 
the repair of highways than that pursued the past 
year. Twenty-three hundred dollars w^ere expended 
in removing snow from the streets in the winter of 
1866-7. Thus far this winter we have been more 
fortunate. 

Cemeteeies. 

We have drawn orders upon the town treasurer for 
$17,64:8.83 in payment for real estate bought by the 
Cemetery Committee, on Adams and Milton Streets. 
We consider the town fortunate in securing so desir- 



able and central a location. The wall around the 
J^orth Cemetery has been repaired and a part has 
been rebuilt ; a strong and neat fence has been made 
upon the wall to protect it and to improve the appear- 
ance of the ground; a new fence has been built on a 
part of the northerly and easterly sides. Other 
improvements have been made in this and also in the 
South Cemetery. 

FiKB Departmen^t. 

The steam fire engine bought for the town has in 
every instance where its services have been required, 
proved a very valuable addition to the efficiency of the 
department. The engineers are very much pleased 
with its performance. There was no provision made 
in the vote of the town meeting, making the appro- 
priation for the purchase of the engine, for hose, or for 
a hose-carriage. One thousand feet of leading hose, 
and a good hose-carriage have been bought, and their 
cost is included in the expenditure which therefore 
exceeds the appropriation. 

By the report of the chief engineer, it appears the 
department is in good condition, excepting the engine 
at the Lower Mills. An iron pipe has been laid from 
"W. Baker and Co.'s chocolate manufactory to the 
corner of River Street, through which water can be 
forced from ISTeponset River. This will prove a very 
great protection in case of fire in the Lower Mills 
Village. We recommend the extension of the pipe to 
the head of Sanford Street. The engine-house at 



8 

Mattapan has been enlarged and improved and the 
necessity of removing it obviated. 

LiGHTiNa Streets. 

The nnmber of lamps lighted at the expense of the 
town is 130, at an expense of $3,904.15 the past year. 
This expenditure we consider very necessary, both for 
the comfort and convenience of the inhabitants, and 
also as a preventive of crime. Many citizens are 
wishing the lamps could be burned all night, and not 
be extinguished as now at or before midnight. The 
subject is worthy the consideration of the town. The 
expense would probably be increased about one-third. 

State Aid. 

On account of an alteration in the statute laws of 
the Commonwealth, we have expended but $11,849 
for this purpose the past year. 

Taxes. 

The collector has received and paid over, the enti"- 
balance of taxes for 1865 and 1866. The whole tax 
raised for 1867 was |2 13,906.30, all of which with the 
exception of $16,580.69 has been paid. 

IlSrCIDENTAL ANT> GeKEKAL. 

The county commissioners have ordered the laying 
out of Richmond Street from Dorchester Avenue to 
Washington Street, and have purchased the estate of 
the late Dr. Brewer, one-half the net cost of which 
was paid by the tow^i. This street when finished as 



intended will be a yery great convenience to the 
travelling public, and also a benefit to property in the 
neighborhood. "We confidently expect the commis- 
sioners will order the widening of Hancock Street and 
Commercial Street from Cross Street to Glover's 
Corner, an improvement much needed, especially near 
the residence of S. P. Dexter, Esq., and at the head of 
Pleasant Street. 

'We have bought for the town, of Mr. Stephen 
Baker, a large tract of land composed of the best 
gravel and of rock fully equal to the Wales' gravel 
for the repair of the highways. This land is easy of 
access, and when the gravel and rock have been 
removed, will, from its favorable location, be worth 
more than its original cost and interest. 

The railing around the town-house lot, having 
become decayed and unsightly, we have caused it to be 
removed and a new picket fence to be built. 

A necessity exists for widening l^orfolk Street near 
the town-house at that point. It is narrow, and owing 
to the great number of carriages passing to and from 
the Catholic Cemetery, it is dangerous. 

The town has been obliged to purchase a duplicate 
set of weights and measures for the use of their sealer, 
he having been forbidden any longer to use the set 
belonging to the State. ' 

A beautiful soldiers' monument has been erected on 
the town's land at Meeting-House Hill, by a committee 
of citizens, with funds furnished by private contribu- 
tion. The monument should be inclosed by an iron 
fence, and the common lying between Winter Street 



10 

and Adams Street could be graded and beautified. 
In a town as large as Dorchester, there are constantly 
arising wants and needed improvements. "We have 
endeavored to keep pace with the times, and as far as 
practicable to attend to the wants of our increasing 
population.

AUDITORS' REPORT. 

The undersigned hereby certify that Ave 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 1st, 1867, four hundred 
twenty-two thousand seven hundred twenty-eight and j^q\ dollars, and 
there has been paid from the treasury, during the same time, three hun- 
dred eighty-six thousand two hundred forty-two and -^-q^ dollars, leaving 
in the treasury February 1st, 1868, thirty-six thousand four hundred 
eighty-six and ^^^ dollars, as shown by the foregoing account. 

W. F. TEMPLE, 
GEORGE HAYNES, 

Aicditors. 
Dorchester, February 1st, 1868. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 

To the Selectmen of Dorchester: 

Gextle:men, — I herewith respectfully present the Nineteenth Annual 
Report of the condition of the Fire Department ; also an account of 
the expenditures made under the direction of the Board of Engineers, 
and a record of the fires and alarms the past year. 

The department is, I feel, worthy of commendation, for the prompt- 
ness of its members at the call of duty, and is as efiicient as ever. I 
have to congratulate the residents of the Lower ISIills Village upon 
their being better supplied with water in case of fire than ever before, 
and I feel that the necessity for the construction of reservoirs for water, 
to be used in cases of fires in other parts of the town, is pressing, and 
would again express my feelings of the great danger many parts of the 
town are under from want of water for the use spoken of. It seems to 
me a moderate expenditure by the town, each year, for the purpose, may 
obviate a necessity for a very large expenditure at some future time, as 
will be veiy likely to be made after some conflagration has shown to the 
citizens, in a way, not to be misunderstood, the necessity I have, a 
number of times, endeavored to show. 

Engine No. 1 is an old and almost worn-out machine ; it is too heavy 
and unwieldy, constantly getting out of repair when used, and unfit for 



48 

the place where located. It is my opinion a light steam fire-engine 
should be substituted. This, with the one thousand feet of leading hose 
now being made, and the supply-pipe from W. Baker & Go's chocolate 
manufactory, would be very efficient in case of fire in the Lower Mills 
Village, and in other parts of the town. 

Engine No. 2. — This is a new steam fire-engine, built by Messrs. 
Hunneman & Co., of Roxbury. It has proved to be a very superior 
machine, and has to a great extent overcome the prejudice at first so 
strongly felt against it. Wherever the occasion has presented itself for 
its use, it has undeniably proved to be vastly superior to hand engines ; 
in fact, since the introduction of steam-engines into fire departments, 
men have seemed unwilling as formerly to labor on hand machines, the 
most exhausting and exciting labor men are often called to do. It is not 
to be expected that in Dorchester, where we fortunately have had so 
infrequent fires, and therefore so little practical experience, the company 
in charge of this engine should be as efficient as they would otherwise 
be. They have shown themselves willing to do their best. This engine 
is attended with a new hose carriage, with one thousand feet of leading 
hose, in charge of a company of twenty men. The horses are used by 
the town on the highways, and, it is believed, earn their living. 

Engine No. 3. — This engine is in very good condition, and provided 
with an ample supply of hose, well taken care of. 

Engine No. 4. — In good condition. The engine house has been 
enlarged and greatly improved. Company efficient and prompt. 

Engine No. 5. — Also in good order and ready for use. The house 
has been shingled, and is now in good condition. 

Engine No. 6. — This engine is in as good condition as any hand 
engine in town, and the house and appurtenances are well cared for. 

The hook and ladder carriage is in serviceable condition, being located 
at the Lower Mills Village. Another carriage, with hooks and ladders, 
may be needed at the northerly part of the town. 

The department is organized as follows : — 

Sylvester H. Hebard, Chief Engineer. 

Assistant Engineers: 
James T. Oliver, Henry Fobes, 

Nathaniel Withington, Geo, G. Dennison, 

Theodore Herset. 

There are now six companies in commission, viz. : —
