REPORT OF THE SELECTMEN. 



The Thirty-First Annual Report of the receipts 
and expenditures of the Town of Dorchester, being 
for the year ending January 31st, 1869, is herewith 
presented. 

Schools. 
The expenditures by order of the School 

Committee have been, . . . $49,108 15 

Appropriations for the same, . . . 47,000 00 
Income from School Funds, . . . 1,658 88 

Poor in^ Almshouse. 

The provision made for the support of its inmates 
are creditable to the town. The keeper, Mr. Spear, 
and his wife, the matron, have earned the hearty 
approval of the Board by their faithful and successful 
endeavors in discharge of the varied duties that from 
time to time have devolved upon them. Good order 
and a thorough discipline have uniformly prevailed, 
while those under their charge have been kindly dealt 
with and cared for. Twenty persons have been 
admitted during the year, ten discharged, and six 
deceased; present number of inmates, seventeen, 
including one who, for several years, has been at 



the Insane Hospital in Boston, whose removal was 
advised by its superintendent. Permits have been 
given to three hundred and ninety-six transient 
comers for meals and lodgings. 

Poor out of the Almshouse. 
The amount expended during the year has been 
f 3,150.64 J of this amount $250 is due from other 
towns. 

Insane at Hospitals. 
The number of persons supported by the town the 
past year is seven, viz. : at Taunton, four; at Wor- 
cester, two; at ]^orthampton, one. 

Highways. 
At the beginning of the municipal year, the duty 
of superintending the repairs on all the streets in 
town was assigned to Mr. Kuggles, who has given to 
it a large amount of time and attention. This order 
has been strictly adhered to except at Port ITorfolk; 
and iN^eponset. Considerable attention has been 
given to the making and repair of sidewalks, and 
much more is needed. A large outlay has been re- 
quired in rebuilding old culverts and building new 
ones. The disposal of surface-water, which is of the 
first importance, is growing to be more and more dif- 
ficult, for as streets become thickly built upon, old 
outlets are closed and new ones must be provided; 
hence the necessity of under-drainage. Bird Street, 
extending from Columbia to Myrtle Street, has been 



widened, as by vote of the town authorizing the same, 
the abutters for the most part giving the land, and 
but little work is now required for its completion. 
The widening and extension of Crescent Avenue, 
Plain and Chickataubut Streets have been adjudged 
necessary, the abutters, with but a trivial exception, 
giving the land, all of which will be reported upon at 
a future time, with their proper boundaries. 

Important widenings have been ordered by the 
County Commissioners. That on Hancock Street has 
been commenced; also on the corner of Commercial 
Street near Pleasant Street. The widening on Cot- 
tage Street has been adjudged necessary, but as yet 
no report has been made. The laying out of Quincy 
Street from Bellevue Street to the Boston line is 
decided upon; an agreement has been made with the 
Boston, Hartford & Erie Pailroad Company to build 
a new bridge and furnish sufficient means of drainage 
to enable the town to complete the work the coming 
season. Adams Street, from Lower Mills to Minot 
Street, has been widened, and a portion of its location 
entirely changed, so as to make desirable addition of 
ground to the new cemetery. Minot Street has been 
widened its entire length, and work on the same com- 
menced. Arrangements have been made with the 
Old Colony and Newport Railway Company to have 
gates placed at the crossings of all principal streets, 
and also for the same thing with the Boston, Hartford 
& Erie Railroad Company, together with the rebuild- 
ing and widening of the bridges on Harvard and 
Norfolk Streets. 



Cemeteries. 
By the laying out of walks, and other work done, 
their general appearance has been improved. At 
the IS^orth Cemetery iron gates have been placed at 
each entrance. Thirty-seven lots have been laid out 
and prepared, twelve of which have been taken. A 
new tight board fence has been built on the southerly 
line. 

FlEE DePAETME]!s^T. 

The department has been improved during the year 
bv the addition of a Hook and Ladder Truck, located 
on Meeting- House Hill. Seven hundred feet of lead- 
ing hose have been purchased and distributed among 
the different companies. The chief engineer reports 
the department in good condition. 

Lighting Streets. 
We have expended for lighting streets the past 
year $5,217.90. The number of lamps now lighted is 
151. ^An arrangement has been made with the gas 
company to burn the lamps until twelve o'clock. 

State Aid. 
The amount expended by the Treasurer the past 
year is $4,439.00. Under the present law payments 
are made only to pensioners. 

Taxes. 

The collector has been as prompt in collecting and 
paying over as in former years. Of the amount 



raised this year, |192,176.92, the town of Hyde Park 
has paid |2,425.32, being their proportion of the State 
and County tax; of the balance, $189,751.60, Mr. 
Hebard has collected a large proportion and promptly 
paid over to the Treasurer. 

Police and Watch. 
The usual Sunday police has been placed along or 
near the Dorchester and Boston line, extending from 
Harvard Street to Savin Hill, a portion of the year, 
and at other points where considered necessary the 
entire year. A night-watch is required at several 
points in the town for two nights in the week all the 
year through, and occasionally oftener. Early in the 
autumn, when several burglaries were committed by 
breaking into houses in the night time, at the request 
of citizens the watch was enlarged and kept on every 
night for a time, but discontinued as soon as was 
deemed expedient. The commitments to the lock-up 
in the year have been one hundred and twenty-two, 
most of which have been for disorderly conduct and 
disturbing the peace. 

EXTEAOEDIXAET EXPENSES. 

The repairs and alterations on !N^eponset Bridge 
and Avenue have been unavoidable ; the latter is now 
filled out to the commissioners' line and safely fenced. 
The bridge has required considerable repair to make 
it safe for the heavy travel that passes over it. High 
and Water Streets, at Port ISTorfolk, have been con- 
siderably improved by cutting down, and a portion of 



the material thus obtained has been used to good ad- 
vantage by the raising of Tenean Road, which had 
been badly exposed to the wash of high tides. It has 
been planked on each side below the filling, and a 
good fence built. The new road leading from Com- 
mercial Point to Mill Street, was also in bad condition 
from the same cause. Over two thousand loads of 
gravel were required to bring it to proper height, at a 
cost of from seven to eight hundred dollars for labor 
and material. These roads, or a portion of them, are 
built on salt marsh, and liable in several places to set- 
tle for some time to come; consequently care should 
be taken that they are kept at proper level, for 
the flowage of even one tide would be likely to 
make breaches costly to repair. The rocks projecting 
into the street at the southerly end of Dorchester 
Avenue have been removed, by blasting, back to the 
line, and a suitable wall built, the whole cost esti- 
mated at $1,200. A large culvert has been built from 
Dorchester Avenue, near Linden Street, to the tide- 
water at Commercial Street. The whole cost of stone 
and labor for the same was $1,200. The expendi- 
tures on Richmond Street above the appropriation 
were occasioned by the great amount of rock which 
required blasting, more than was anticipated when 
commenced. The filling of the pond on Pond Street 
is estimated to have cost, for material and labor, $700. 
The Town House has been newly shingled, and other 
ways improved, and a new furnace set; the whole 
cost of improvements, $1,084:.56. 



PoKD Street. 
The stagnant pond of water on this street has, by 
request, been filled nearly to a level with the street, 
and making something more than 9,000 feet of land 
which the abutters would like to purchase, and as it is 
not wanted by the town, and will probably bring more 
than the cost of filling, we recommend that it be sold. 

Reservoirs. 
Four brick and stone reservoirs have been built in 
a most thorough and substantial manner; one on 
Sumner Street, near the junction of Stoughton Street, 
one at Field's Corner, which was not quite completed 
on account of the wet season, one at ISTeponset, and 
one at Port Norfolk, holding about 30,000 gallons each ; 
also two wooden tanks, one in the brook at Cottage 
Street, and one in Koxbury Brook, at the extreme 
north-westerly section of the town. There are other 
sections where they seem needed. 

Hyde Park Line. 
By an Act of the Legislature, passed in April last, 
portions of the towns of Dorchester, Milton and 
Dedham were set off and the town of Hyde Park 
established. The boundary line between the towns 
of Hyde Park and Dorchester has been established 
and run, a survey and plan of the same made and 
placed on file, and stone posts erected at several 
points thereon. 



10 

Gravel Lai^d. 
A lot of land has been purchased near Ashmont 
Street for the gravel, on favorable terms; less than it 
will be likely to sell for after the gravel is removed. 

Flagstaff. 

A new flagstaff has been erected on Meeting- 
House Hill, in accordance with the vote of the town, 
in place of the one presented by the late Enoch Train, 
which was destroyed by lightning some two years 
since. 

En-ghste-House No. 3. 

This building has always stood on leased land, and 
being obliged to remove it a lot was purchased on 
Harvard Street, where it now stands. The cost of 
land, removal and repairs amount to $1,773.68. A 
good building lot on the street can be disposed of 
without injury to the remainder. 

LaI^D AlfD ElSTGIKE-HoUSE AT LOWEE MiLLS. 

A lot of land was bought on Dorchester Avenue at 
a cost of $550; grading the same, $200; but being 
able soon after to procure another lot more central, 
this was sold for what it cost, $750, and the lot on 
the corner of Kiver and Temple Streets purchased 
for $977. A brick engine-house is being built thereon. 

Hook and Ladder House. 
A good hook and ladder house has been erected 
on land belonging to the town, on Meeting-House 
Hill, at a cost of $2,680.15.

AUDITOR'S REPORT. 

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

There has been i-eccived by the Treasurer, from all sources, the 
past year, including the balance on hand February 1st, 1868, three 
hundred ninety-four thousand seven hundi-ed ninety-six and /^^j 
dollars, and there has been paid from the treasury, during the same 
time, three hundred eleven thousand seven hundred eighty-four 
and y'^ij dollars, leaving in the treasury, February 1st, 1869, eighty- 
three thousand eleven and -^^^ dollars, as shown by the foregoing 
account. 

W. F. TEMPLE, ) . ' ., 

}■ AMclitors, 
GEORGE HAYNES,) 

DoECHESTEE, February 1st, 1869. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 

To the Selectmen of Dorchester : 

Gen^tlemejS', — The Twentieth Annual Report of the state of the 
fire department of this town is herewith respectfully presented, 
together with an account of the expenditures made XTnder the direc- 
tion of the Board of Engineers, and also a table record of the fires 
and alarms the past year. 

The dejDartment, I think, is in as good condition, and as prompt 
and united as ever before. Fortunately, the occasions calling for 
the services of the department in extinguishing fires have been few. 
The rapidly increasing nimiber and the close proximity of buildings 
(almost wholly of wood) being erected in this town, calls for a 
larger and more accessible supply of water for use in cases of fires. 

Four reservoirs have been built the past year. One in front of 
the building owned by the Dorchester Mutual Fire Insurance Com- 
pany, at Port Norfolk ; one in front of the building at Field's Cor- 
ner, in which are the town offices ; one on Sumner Street, near the 
Baptist Clim-ch; and one in Narragansett Street, Neponset. I 
recommend the building of at least as many more the coming year. 
The engine house No. 1, at the Lower Mills village, Adams Street, 
having been burned May 19 last, the town have bought a lot of 



55 

land, corner of River and Temple Streets, and bnilt a new lionse 
thereon. From the time of the burning of the house until quite 
lately, the Engine No, 1 was necessarily left out of doors. The 
machine is unfit for the use of the town at the locality where sit- 
uated, and I again recommend the purchase of a light steam fire 
engine in its jjlace. The present engine is in charge of a good 
company, who will, in case of necessity, do all that can be done 
with it. 

Engine No. 2, steamer, is in good condition, and the company in 
charge competent and prompt. 

Engine No. 3 is a Hunneman hand engine, in good order, and in 
charge of a good company. The engine house occupied for the 
storage of this machine has been moved from its former location on 
" Cofliee Court," to a lot of land on Harvard Street, which has been 
bought by the town for the purpose. This change was necessary 
on account of the land on " Cofiee Court " having been sold. 

Engine No. 4, at Mattapan village, and the house in which it is 
kept, are both in first-rate order, and in charge of a good company. 

Engine No. 5, at Neponset, is in good order, in charge of an efii- 
cient company. 

Engine No. 6, on Boston Street, near Upham's Corner, is in 
charge of a first-rate company. The engine and engine-house are 
well taken care of. 

A new hook and ladder carriage'has been purchased, with all the 
necessary apj)urtenances, and a new house has been built on High 
Street, Meeting-house Hill. This carriage, called the " Everett," is 
in charge of thirteen firemen. 

The Mattapan hook and ladder truck at the Lower Mills, is in 
charge of two firemen. 

Hose Company No. 1, at the Lower Mills, is in charge of fifteen 
firemen. 

I feel that the citizens of Dorchester are under obligations to the 
firemen of their town, for their ready and willing services. The 
good order and haniiony of the members of the department are 
worthy of commendation. 
The amount appropriated by the town for the fire dejDartment 

expenses, was 16,000 00 

The amount expen .ed has been .... 5,719 75 

The department is organized as follows : —

FIEST AKISTUAL REPOKT 



CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS 



TOWN OF DORCHESTER. 



FOE THE 



Year Ending January 31, 1869. 



R E P O RT. 



To the Town of Dorchester and its Board of Selectmen: — 

The Board of Commissioners for the care, superintendence 
and management of the Cemetery situated between Adams 
Street and Neponset River, in submitting the First Annual Report 
thereon, desire to acknowledge their sense of the liberality 
which has characterized the action of the town towards this 
enterprise, and the courtesy they have received in the discharge 
of their duties from various officers and citizens of the town. 

Its liberal action has impressed the Commissioners with a 
sense of the determination of the town to make this such a 
cemetery as shall be adequate to the needs and congenial to the 
tastes of the citizens of Dorchester. 

The Act of the legislature under which the Board is consti- 
tuted was approved by the governor March 16th, 1868 ; accepted 
and the present Commissioners chosen April 6th, 1868. They 
held their first meeting and organized on the fourteenth of the 
same month ; and at that meeting they took the preliminary 
steps for the laying out of the cemetery upon a plan of such 
design that the grounds might retain their attractive natural 
features, and yet be developed, as future wants should require, 
symmetrically and with economy. Such a plan has been com- 
pleted, and it is proposed to commence work in accordance with 
it as early as the season will permit. The completion of this 
plan was delayed, however, by the fact that the Board became 
very early aware that the County Commissioners contemplated 
changing the width, and, perhaps, the location of Adams Street, 
on which the cemetery, for upwards of one thousand feet has its 
principal front ; and the Board judged it better to await the 
definite location of Adams Street, than to expend labor where 
it might be rendered in a great degree useless, if the change of 
location of the street should be made as was then proposed. 
In October last the County Commissioners decided to make such 
change, and a strip of land was thereby left between the ceme- 



69 

tery grounds and the new location of Adams Street, about one 
thousand feet in length, of varying width, containing 131,650 
square feet, including the land in the new location of Adams 
Street. This strip comprised two parcels, held by different 
ownerships, the smaller parcel having two more owners than 
the larger one ; and of this smaller parcel it was found imprac- 
ticable at that time, or since, to obtain a title to more than five 
undivided sevenths. 

The Board felt compelled, however, in order to preserve its 
frontage upon Adams Street, to secure what could then be had 
of this strip, and accordingly purchased the whole of the larger 
parcel and the five-sevenths of the smaller one, having together 
an area of upwards of three acres, at the cost of, $1,774 67 

Other additions of land have been made, as follows : — 

From the Seaverns estate, about two acres, at the 

cost of, 11,000 00 

From the Richardson estate, (upland and marsh), 

nearly three acres, at the cost of . . $446 00 

making (including the parcel of which two-sevenths are still 
outstanding,) about eight acres added during the year, to the 
thirty-two acres previously purchased and set apart for the 
cemetery. 

All said additions are well adapted to the purpose for which 
they have been acquired, and the Commissioners judge that the 
prices paid therefor are reasonable, and that no attempt has 
been made by the vendors to take undue advantage of the needs 
of the town. 

In conformity with the plan for laying out the cemetery, its 
principal entrance will be at the corner of Adams and Milton 
Streets, and its name, as adopted by the Board, is " Cedar 
Grove Cemetery." 

The Commissioners report the following receipts : — 

Cash appropriated by the town, April 6, 1868, 
received as interest on same, 
received for rent, .... 
received for grass sold, 

Total receipts, ....

All which is now loaned upon interest at the rate of seven per 
cent, per annum and United States bonds to the amount of 
eleven thousand dollars are held as collateral security therefor. 
No bills have been presented for payment. It is believed that 
no further appropriation by the town need ever be asked. 

It is proposed, with the opening of the spring, to commence 
active operations upon the improvement of the grounds, the 
construction of avenues and grading of lots in portions of the 
Cemetery ; and, with this view, the Board has contracted for 
carts and harnesses, has adopted measures for securing a proper 
person as superintendent, and it is believed, that at an early 
day, improvements w^ill so far have been made, that these 
grounds can be used in accordance with the purposes of the 
town, as an appropriate and attractive resting-place for its dead. 

Respectfully submitted,
