REPORT OF THE SELECTMEN. 



Fellow Citizens: 

Our town has added another year to its history, and 
the time has come for the annually expected report. In 
making this, so far as our Board is concerned, we propose 
not only to glance at our doings for the year of our ser- 
vice as your selectmen, but also to take a brief retrospec- 
tive and prospective view of our town's condition. 

DEATHS. 

The hand of death has been laid upon three men con- 
nected with our town's official affairs during the year. 
Almost in the moment of his re-election, Benj. C. Yose, 
a valued member of the School Board, and a most es- 
teemed and useful citizen, was stricken with a mortal 
disease. And quite recently Joel F. Goodwin has de- 
parted from amongst us — a man appreciated by his associ- 
ates ; for many years one of the town assessors, and of 
late one of the overseers of the poor, and janitor of the 
town offices, in which last position he was brought into 
so intimate relations with our Board that his loss was 
keenly felt by us. But as a Board, we have most deeply 
sympathized with the sorrow which was generally felt by 
our community at the death of our associate member, 
Daniel Sawyer, Avhose sickness and decease followed so 
closely upon his election to office as to deprive us almost 
entirely of the benefit we should otherwise have experi- 
enced from his acknowledged integrity and abilities. 



6 

POLICE. 

The police department has been under the charge of 
Charles E. Jenney, whose long experience here and in 
other places gave good assurance of his fitness which has 
been fully realized by the results. The force was reduced 
by us to the number employed in 1887 in accordance with 
the necessity imposed by the diminished appropriation 
of this year, and we believe that the security and property 
of our citizens have in no way suffered, but have been as 
well guarded as in the previous year ; while there has been 
a saving of -12,000 to the town. For a detailed report of 
the doings of this department, reference may be made to 
the report of the Chief hereinafter printed. 

GRAVEL PIT. 

In 1888 the town voted to buy a gravel pit and appro- 
priated $1,500 therefor. This not having been done by 
onr predecessors, we have purchased a pit in the Fair- 
mount district for $900. 

SUITS. 

No suits have been brought against the town, nor any 
claims likely to lead to litigation presented during our 
term. When we entered upon our duties we found seven 
cases pending against the town. Of these six have been 
settled at a total cost of $ 772.93. Two of these, that of 
C. H. Crumett and H. B. Miner for damage to land on 
Bridge St., and that of H. S. Bunton, trustee, for dam- 
age to land on Perkins avenue, were referred to arbitra- 
tion and damages of $132.93 and $150, respectively, 
awarded. 

The suit brought by Harry J. Booth for personal in- 
juries received by stepping into an improperly filled hole 
on Fairmount avenue opposite the Baptist church was 
compromised for #250. 



The suit of Benj. F. Tyler for damages to team caused 
by his horse stepping into a hole on Dell avenue has been 
settled for $50. 

The suit of Michael Rogers for damage caused to 
his mowing land by felling a tree thereon and by tres- 
pass of the employees of the town has been adjusted for 
#60. 

The suit of Waldo F. Ward for damage to his estate 
from change of grade on Hyde Park avenue has been set- 
tled for $130. The town is also liable for costs on the 
Crumett-Miner and Bun ton, trustee, suits, the amount of 
which has not yet been determined. 

The remaining suit, that of Win, J. Hayes for injuries 
received from a low hanging telegraph or telephone wire 
is still pending, awaiting further investigation by the 
Counsel for the town. We have thought it interesting to 
briefly detail the nature of these cases, as our immediate 
predecessors, though alluding to the suits, wholly omitted 
to give any information about them. 

Of the amounts agreed upon for settlement, but $240 
has been paid, being all which our incidental appropria- 
tion could allow after providing for other legitimate 
demands upon it, no allowance for such expenses being 
possible when the amount of the incidental appropriation 
was fixed, on account of the complete absence of any 
information at that time concerning the character of these 
suits. And now, while speaking of that appropriation, 
we will say that it has been drawn upon to the amount 
of 1207.29 to meet bills of the Board of Health, the appro- 
priation for which proved insufficient. 

It is gratifying to us to be able to state that the various 
appropriations which you made last spring for our use 
have proved ample to do all the things contemplated by 
us then, and it is particularly gratifying to feel that we 



will not leave any unpaid bills as a legacy to our 
successors. 

WORK ON HTGHWAYS AND SIDEWALKS. 

The amount appropriated for highways was heavily 
drawn upon by the early spring rains and the excessive 
rainfall of last summer. It seemed for a time as if the 
money spent in repairing the ravages made by those 
floods was almost thrown away, because in many cases we 
would hardly get the streets in repair before another 
washout would come and undo all our work. 

We regret to say that much of the street building in 
past years has been done in such a way that when heavy 
rains come large quantities of water are drawn into chan- 
nels where no adequate provision has been made to 
receive and dispose of it ; consequently we shall continue 
to suffer from washouts until good substantial work 
is done at the proper points, of a character to relieve our 
streets from being torn to pieces by every heavy rain 
storm. 

We think it was the purpose of the citizens when we 
were elected, and it was our aim to have all new work 
upon our streets done in a thoroughly substantial manner, 
and as indicative of the mode in which we have attempted 
to carry out that purpose we call your attention with 
pleasure to the work done through the centre of the 
town from the N. Y. & N. E. R. R. on Fairmount avenue 
to the point where River street crosses Central Park ave- 
nue. We believe that this kind of work should be con- 
tinued and extended year by year until every part of our 
town is in the enjoyment of streets built in the same 
manner. As this cannot all be done in one year, we 
advise that from one to two miles be done each year, and 
that a special appropriation of say -f 4,0 00 be made each 



9 

year to brush up the other streets and keep them in fair 
condition, as we have tried to do this year with our small 
appropriation . 

In the matter of sidewalks we thought it well to lay 
concrete the length of Everett street, in view of additions 
and improvements made in and around the High School 
property on that street, for the benefit of the scholars and 
teachers of that school as well as the rest of the neighbor- 
hood. The sidewalks on Oak and Maple streets, on Mt. 
Neponset, have also been concreted. This was ordered 
to be done and mone} r appropriated therefor by the town 
in 1888, but for reasons the work was not done, and we 
found it waiting for us to do out of this year's appropria- 
tion. The brick walk on the northerly side of Oak street 
we began to replace by concrete for the reason that the 
brick was so soft and porous as to readily absorb and re- 
tain moisture, which in time of cold weather caused the 
surface to become so slippery as to endanger the safety of 
those walking upon it, and thereby make the town liable 
to suits and damages. The bricks we sold for $5 per 
1000. We have also commenced to utilize the curbstones 
placed on a portion of Austin street last year, by concret- 
ing the enclosed walk. The work on both the above- 
named localities was interrupted by the coming of cold 
weather, and being uncompleted is not paid for ; but 
there is enough money due from betterment assessments 
to fully pay for all. Eight hundred feet of plank side- 
walks have also been built in Readville. 

We have caused curbstones to be laid along the side- 
walk on West River street from a point known as the 
Bass estate to and turning into Glen wood avenue, about 
400 feet in all. This walk has not been made of concrete 
but of a layer of stones covered with gravel, and we 
recommend the construction of more walks of this kind 



10 

as it is much less costly than concrete, and in many places 
Avill as well answer the purpose as concrete, the durability 
of which is yet to be proved. 

The following statement shows how and where the 
Highway and Permanent Improvement appropriations 
have been expended. In the early Spring immediately 
after our term of office began, we gave attention to the 
streets looking to the filling up all the soft places and 
making general repairs all over the town, for which we 
expended 81,194.64. As soon as we could arrange to do 
it we divided the town into five sections, and spent upon 
these respectively for general repairs, as follows : 

Central division, 

Hazelwood and Clarendon Hills division, 

Fairmount division, 

Sunnyside division, 

Readville division, 

Bills paid for Board of Health, 

Total, $3,610 27 

In these divisions we expended on permanent improve- 
ments the following amounts : 

Central division, macadamized way on River street 

and Fairmount avenue, $3,415 08 

Incidental cost of dovetailing above work at 

termini and connections, 
Oak and Maple streets (concreting), 
Everett street, curb and concrete, 
Hazelwood and Clarendon Hills division, work on 

culvert and street crossings, 
Fairmount division, on sidewalks, 
Sunnyside division, West River street near Glenwood 

avenue,

With this brief statement we submit our care of the 
highways to your praise or censure, and withhold any 
advice as to what streets and what work should receive 
especial attention the coming year. We do this because 
the calls are so numerous and urgent from all parts of the 
town that we are unwilling to give prominence to any by 
our recommendation. 

RETROSPECTIVE. 

When, four years ago, the project of borrowing $20,000 
yearly for permanent improvements was suggested, its 
adoption was greatly aided by the expectation which its 
advocates entertained that a very considerable part of the 
money expended for sidewalk improvements would be re- 
covered into the treasury in the way of assessments 
upon abutters. The law allows such assessments to be 
made to an amount not exceeding one per cent, of the 
assessors' valuation of the adjacent property, and it was 
believed that, if the sidewalks were located with good 
judgment, such assessment would repay nearly, if not 
quite, 50 per cent, of the money expended. [n other 
words, the abutters would repay about one-half the cost 
and every dollar expended from the permanent improve- 
ment fund on sidewalks would procure nearly two dollars' 
worth of work. The following table will show to what 
extent these expectations have been realized.

It will be seen by the foregoing table that the total 
amount of expenditure on sidewalks in the four years has 
been $35,894.70, which if expended where the adjacent 
estates were of enough value would have brought back 
into our treasury from betterment assessments $17,947.35. 
Whereas, in fact, it brought only $12,446.41 or $5,500 
less than had been originally counted on. Only in this 
year just past has the ratio of assessment to the cost of 
construction approximated to the 50 per cent, expected, 
being a trifle over 44 per cent., while for the year 1888 it 
was only 33 8-10 per cent.; 1887, 32 per cent., and for 
1886, 35 1-10 per cent. This is the result of building ex- 
pensive sidewalks in many cases in localities where the 
abutting property was not of sufficient value for the 
assessment upon it to pay a reasonable percentage of the 
cost, such as Williams avenue where the cost was 
$1,625.56 and the assessment only $386.14 or 23 7-10 per 
cent.; Beacon street where the cost was $1,761.55, and 
the assessment $501.97 or 28 1-2 per cent.; Perkins 
avenue where the cost was $638.45 and the assessment 
$190, or 30 per cent.; Business street, where the cost 
was $2,137.98 and the assessment $655.32 or 30 6-10 
per cent. 

Indeed, had it not been for such localities as Oak 
street, Maple street, Webster street and portions of River 
street and Gordon avenue and the like, where the assessed 
property paid from 45 to 50 per cent, of the cost, the per- 
centage for the four years would have fallen considerably 
below its present poor average of 34 7-10 per cent. 

In the present financial condition of the town that 
policy is at least questionable which looks to expending 
so much money on streets which cannot or do not give 
greater returns for the outlay. We believe that there are 
many localities yet unprovided with sidewalks where the 



14 

residents would cheerfully consent to pay 50 per cent, of 
the cost of concrete irrespective of the assessed valuation, 
and such should be the places where such walks should 
be made. Where the value of the property or the dispo- 
sition of the residents is such that a fair proportion of 
the cost of concrete cannot be recovered, then the side- 
walks should be constructed in such a manner and of such 
material that an assessment of one per cent, on the value 
of the adjacent property will at least approximate to 50 
per cent, of their cost. And this is equitable, for the more 
valuable property not only pays one-half the cost of its 
sidewalks but by reason of its higher value has paid or will 
pay a larger portion of the net cost of all the sidewalks. 

Moreover, it seems to us that our municipal corporation 
should be governed by the same considerations which 
control the acts of other corporations and individuals, 
should profit by the lessons which the past teaches, and 
should promptly rectify mistakes and . discard errors 
which are plainly shown by its costly experience. We 
may add that Newton and other like places put in no 
such sidewalks as ours except when the abutters agree 
to pay 50 per cent, of their cost. Looking back again 
over the last four years, we find that there was ex- 
pended for streets and sidewalks in 1886, 132,272.04; 
in 1887, $26,361.89.; in 1888, -$44,590.34; and in 1889, 
including $ 261.55 for work done last year, $12,254.91; or 
in the aggregate -$115,479.18. 

Deducting from this the total above shown as expended 
on sidewalks, $35,894.70, there is left $79,584.48 as the 
amount spent in the four years on the roadways alone, 
enough to construct about nine miles of such a road as 
we have this year built through the centre of the town on 
portions of River street and Fairmount avenue; a street 
which, it is safe to say, has some durability and will 



15 

probably need no repair during such time as will be re- 
quired to construct in the same manner the other important 
avenues of travel in our town, if we adopt the policy 
of making such streets instead of carting mud and fine 
sand upon our ways to be washed off by the first rain 
storm, as has been done in the past. We may be pardoned 
for calling especial attention to the fact that while nearly 
#45,000 were used up last year on our sidewalks and high- 
ways we have this year carried the same through on about 
$12,000, including all that we have received from better- 
ments. 

The town has in the last four years expended 
•1486,347.04, made up of $420,347.04 raised by taxation 
and $66,000 borrowed. This year the tax levy was 
$118,000 and $6,000 has been borrowed, making the 
amount for expenditure $124,000. If there be deducted 
from this the amount used for payment of debt and 
interest, $18,780, for deficiencies of last year, $2,800, 
and for money spent last year, $9,665.11, or in all, 
$31,245.11, there is left the sum of $92,754.89 as the 
actual cost of the various departments of the town gov- 
ernment, which at the valuation of last year would require 
a tax of $13.50 on $1,000. When we consider that with 
this equivalent of a tax rate of $13.50 we have been able 
to expend $12,000 on streets and sidewalks, make a sub- 
stantial addition to our High School building, purchase a 
stone-crusher with all its necessary equipments, and every 
portion of our town government has cared well for all the 
trusts confided to it, we find ample ground for taking a 
bright view of the financial condition of our town in the 
future, if a judicious policy is steadily maintained. And 
this is not difficult to do. Let us look at our town 
debt and the future payments to be made on it, which 
are — 



16 



In 1890, principal and interest, $ 19, 740; 



1891, 

1892, 
1893, 
1894, 
1895, 
1896, 
1897, 
1898, 



19,440; 
19,140; 
18,840; 
18,540; 
17,740; 

6,4&0; 

4,240; 

2,080. 



Thus we see that in 1895 the last heavy payment on 
account of debt will be made ; that then this debt, which 
now hang-s like a mill-stone around our necks and adds 
nearly $20,000 to our yearly taxes, will be practically 
paid off. Such being the case, it seems that we have only 
to stand sturdily for a conservative, business-like policy 
for our town to reap substantial rewards in the near 
future. We should bear, with whatever patience we can, 
for the next few years taxes to the amount which we are 
now paying, that we may keep our town abreast with the 
private spirit and enterprise which is so rapidly building 
it up and carefully avoid doing anything from a mistaken 
economy which will tend to retard in the slightest degree 
any enterprise calculated to make our town attractive to 
its citizens and to those who may come this way with a 
view to settling amongst us. We think such a policy can 
be carried out with a tax rate of from $15 to $16 per 
$1,000 till our debt is substantially paid in 1895, after 
which we ought to be able on a tax rate of $13 to $14 
per $1,000 to conduct our town affairs in a very liberal 
manner. 

Such a rate will not be large enough to debar or dis- 
courage capital from seeking a home among us, and this 
view of the future rate is very conservative. If we were 
disposed to indulge in a speculative view we should say 
that the probable increase of property will by that time 



17 

increase our valuation so that $12 per $1,000 will provide 
amply for all our needs. We present these thoughts to 
you, fellow-citizens, hoping that they will invite your 
careful consideration, and lead you to form a firm resolu- 
tion to favor no more town debt till its present indebted- 
ness is all cleared off. 

APPROPRIATIONS FOR NEXT YEAR. 

We have thought that it would be a help to you in 
considering the appropriations for next year if we ex- 
pressed our judgment as to what will be necessary, assum- 
ing that the School Committee will ask for the same as 
in 1889. 

We therefore present the following columns, one show- 
ing the appropriations made for 1889, the other indicating 
what seems desirable for 1890.

In closing tins somewhat extended report, for which 
we shall offer no apology as we have devoted it neither 
to magnifying our own services nor vilifying the acts or 
motives of others, but in attempting to place before you 
certain knowledge which our official position has given us 
opportunity to acquire, we can say that harmony in 
every particular has prevailed in our Board and that in 
all that has been done by us the individual has disappeared 
in the whole. While, in the early part of our term, sec- 
tions of our highways were assigned to each of us as his 
especial care, we have never fogotten that the whole of 
our town had a claim upon us. It should be gratifying 
to everyone to be selected by his fellow-citizens for a po- 
sition of trust; it is more gratifying to the conscientious 
official to know that his labors are closely watched by 
those whom he is serving. Apathy, which often springs 
from over-confidence, is more disheartening to the public- 
servant, as it is more dangerous to the public weal, than 
all the wiles of the corner or saloon politician, for it de- 
prives him of that strength which is essential to the best 
administration of office.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



The duties of this Board appear to be substantially of 
the same character each year, and are, for the most part, 
denned by existing laws. We have attempted to perform 
these duties with as little friction and inconvenience to 
the public as possible, and yet with a due regard to the 
preservation of the public health. 

There have been instances of the usual contagious dis- 
eases in the town during the year, but with the exception 
of deaths from pneumonia and diphtheria, the mortality 
has not been heavy as will appear from the following 
table of cases reported to us. For the year ending Janu- 
ary 31, 1890, there have been reported to the Board the 
following cases of contagious diseases : 

Diphtheria., 42 cases with 6 deaths. 

Scarlet Fever, 4 " " " 

Typhoid Fever, 10 " " 2 " 

Membraneous Croup, 1 case " 1 death. 

" 1 death. 

with 1 death. 

" 1 " 

" 2 deaths. 



" 

for the year 1888. 

We have caused placards to be put upon all houses in 
which were such cases of a dangerous character. 

On account of the unsanitary condition of the prem- 
ises from bad water and defective drainage we have 



Measles,

ordered four houses to be vacated, to so remain until their 
owners should make such changes in the sanitary arrange- 
ments as should meet with the approval of our Board. We 
have also in many cases discontinued the use of impure 
well water and caused the houses to be supplied with 
aqueduct water. We have issued ten permits for the 
keeping of swine, subject to the rules and regulations of 
our Board. 

We have had a considerable number of petitions and 
applications to interfere in cases of wet, spongy and mal- 
arious lands. In the case of such lands near the O. C. 
R. R. station and Green street we caused a drain to be 
laid from the above station to Central Park avenue in 
the rear of Green street, connecting with Mr. Bleakie's 
drain. We put in a blind drain under Green street, be- 
tween the houses owned by Messrs. Fairbairn and Zim- 
mermann to connect with the drain of the O. C. R. R. 
These works cost $475.48, and we adjudged that no part 
of expense ought to be borne by land owners or abuttors. 

We adjudged that the low land lying east of the O. C. 
R. R. station and owned by the Real Estate and Building- 
Co. should be drained and filled at the owners' expense. 
It has been drained and the filling begun. 

We caused "Dutch Gap Canal" to be cleaned out at a 
cost to the town of $30. 

We have had hearings in regard to the bad drainage 
of Pierce .street and vicinity, and in regard to the stag- 
nant pool in the rear of the premises of Gen. Carrington 
on East River street, but deferred action as our appropri- 
ation had been exhausted b}^ the work above described. 
These places should receive the early and active attention 
of the next Board. 

The question of the disposal of swill and house garbage 
has been one which has given us considerable trouble. 



21 

The experiment of having it removed for its value by 
different parties had been tried in previous years and had 
jjroved unsatisfactory to all concerned. We began by 
having the swill collected and removed by our agent at a 
fixed daily compensation ; this to be sold and the proceeds 
turned over to the Board. But there were continual dis- 
putes arising between our agent and the various purchasers 
as to the value and amounts taken, and the net receipts 
were trifling. 

Learning also that such receipts should be carried into 
the town treasury and then would not be subject to our 
drafts, we thought it wise to let one hand wash the other, 
as far as possible, and finally contracted with Mr. Frank 
Hukin to gather up and carry away the swill for $2.50 per 
day and to allow on his bill for the swill at the rate of 
■f>3 per week. 

Under this arrangement Mr. Hukin has passed to the 
credit of the town $59, and we have turned into the 
treasury $10 collected for swill previously sold. We un- 
derstand that some small sums collected in the same way 
were expended by the Chairman of the Board in purchase 
of disinfectants, etc., which were not reported to the full 
Board. Mr. Dowries" critical condition at the present 
time, resulting from his serious illness, makes it impossible 
for us to get particulars from him.* 

We think the plan at last settled upon about the swill 
a good one for the town and satisfactory to citizens, and 
recommend them to put on another team. 

From this year's experience we think that a larger 

* Before the above report was in print — on Feb. 8th — Mr. Downes 
succumbed to his disease and passed away. He had been a mem- 
ber of the Board of Health for a number of years, and his associ- 
ates reposed in him that confidence which was shown by the public 
in his repeated re-election. 



22 

appropriation for next year should be made for the Board 
of Health. We have been obliged to contract bills to the 
amount of $680.83 in excess of our appropriation. 

These we have approved and passed to the selectmen 
to be paid from the incidental appropriation. This report 
will show how many have been paid and what they are 
for. It requires a considerable sum annually to pay for 
the printing required by existing laws — such as the rules 
and regulations, reports of contagious diseases, notices, 
vaccination blanks and others — to which was added this 
year general advertising of swill regulations, order book, 
etc. 

It is gratifying to observe that the jealousy and hos- 
tility toward the Board of Health, which once existed, 
has disappeared, or is confined to a few individuals ; the 
public has learned to recognize and appreciate the useful- 
ness and beneficence of acts which have, for their sole 
aim, the protection of the public health. The following 
rules and regulations were adopted for the current year : 

Public Statutes, Chapter 80, Section IS. — The Board of Health 
of a town shall make such regulations as it judges necessary for the 
public health and safety, respecting nuisances, sources of filth and 
causes of sickness within its town. Whoever violates any such reg- 
ulations shall forfeit a sum not exceeding one hundred dollars. 

In accordance with the foregoing provisions of law this Board 
makes the following regulations, which will be strictly enforced. 

Regulation 1. — -The owner, agent or occupant having the care of 
any tenement used as a dwelling house, shall furnish the same with 
sufficient drain, under ground, to carry off the waste water; also 
with a suitable privy or water closet, sufficient for the accommoda- 
tion of all those inhabiting the premises. All waste pipes from 
water closets, sinks, bowls, bath and other set tubs, shall be suitably 
trapped, and all drains entering cesspools must be made water tight. 
There should also be a trap in the soil pipe between the house and 
cesspool and provision made to admit air into said pipe between the 
house and trap. 

Regulation 2. — All privy vaults shall be so constructed that the 
inside of the same shall be at least five feet distant from the line of 



23 

every adjoining lot or street and shall be provided with a ventilation 
through the roof; the same shall not be used as cesspools nor receive 
drainage from the premises; their contents shall not be allowed to 
leak out or otherwise become offensive. 

Regulation 3. — A.11 waste water shall be so conveyed through 
sufficient drains under ground to a reservoir sunk under ground as 
shall be approved by the Board of He?dth. No person shall allow 
any drain or the overflow of any cesspool to enter any running stream, 
or any drain constructed for surface water, and no person shall suffer 
any house drainage or other offensive water to remain in any cellar, 
or upon any lot or vacant ground by such person owned or occupied. 
All privy vaults and cesspools within thirty feet of any well or spring, 
the water of which is used for domestic purposes, must be water 
tight. 

Regulation 4. — The Board when satisfied upon due examination 
that a cellar, room, tenement or building in the town occupied as a 
dwelling place, has become by reason of the number of occupants, 
want of cleanliness or other cause, unfit for such purpose, and a 
cause of nuisance or sickness to the occupants or the public, may 
issue a notice in writing to such occupants, requiring the premises to 
be put in proper condition, or if the Board see fit they may require 
the premises to be vacated and the same shall not be again occupied 
without the written permission of the Board. 

Regulation 5. — No person shall throw or put into any public 
place or pond, or running stream, or body of water, or in any other 
place where the Board of Health may deem it a nuisance, any dead 
animal, animal matter, decayed fruit or vegetables, dirt or rubbish 
whatever; nor shall any person throw into or upon any flats within 
the jurisdiction of the town, any dead animals, filth or offensive 
matter. 

Regulation 6. — No person shall bring into the town, keep or offer 
for sale any diseased, putrid, stale or unwholesome meat, vegetables 
or provisions. 

Regulation 7. — Any person sick with the small-pox or other con- 
tagious disease, together with all persons in attendance upon them, 
will be subject to the control of the Board, and no person shall enter 
or leave a house wherein a person is or has been sick with the dis- 
ease or in any way come in contact with the inmates of such house, 
except by permission of the Board. 

Regulation 8. — All persons are warned not to approach a house 
or the surrounding premises whereupon is displayed a disease flag 
by day, or a red light by night. 

Regulation 9. — Whenever the Board of Health shall ascertain 
that any person is sick with small-pox. scarlet fever, diphtheria, or 



24 

any other disease dangerous to the public health, the Board shall 
at their discretion have full control of said person or premises and 
shall if they deem proper order the premises vacated. 

Regulation 10. — The bodies of all persons dying of small-pox, scar- 
let fever, typhus fever or diphtheria, must be immediately disinfected, 
and placed in a tight coffin, which shall not be reopened. In the 
above cases no public funeral will be allowed without permission 
from the Board of Health. 

Regulation 11. — The following cases are considered contagious 
and dangerous to the public health: — Small-pox, Diphtheria, Scarlet 
Fever, Measles, and Typhoid Fever. 

Public Statutes, Chapter 80, Section 79. — When a physician 
knows that a person whom he is called to visit is infected with 
small-pox, or any other disease dangerous to the public health, he 
shall immediately give notice thereof to the Board of Health of 
the town; and if he refuses or neglects to give such notice, he 
shall forfeit for each offence not less than fifty nor more than one 
hundred dollars. 

Regulation 12. — No person will be permitted to keep any swine 
within the limits o the toAvn of Hyde Park without a written per- 
mit from the Board of Health. 

Regulation 13. — No person shall remove, or carry in or through 
any of the streets, lanes or avenues, places or alleys within the town 
of Hyde Park, the contents of any cesspool, vault or privy well, swill 
or house off al, (either animal or vegetable) or grease or bones, unless 
a permit be granted by the Board of Health upon such terms and con- 
ditions as said Board may deem necessary. 

Regulation 14. — No person shall bury the contents of any cess- 
pool, vault, privy or privy well within the limits of the town of Hyde 
Park unless a permit be granted by the Board of Health. 

Regulation 15. — Parties will be licensed by the Board of Health 
to collect swill and refuse matter from houses in Hyde Park until 
Mayl, 1890. 

Public Statutes, Chapter 252. — In compliance with the require- 
ments of the above chapter of the public statutes, the Board of 
Health makes the following regulation: 

Regulation 16. — Any person in the town of Hyde Park, who 
knows or suspects any domestic animal has contagious disease (such 
as glanders in horses or cholera in swine) must immediately report 
the same to the Board of Health. The penalty for neglect to do so 
is fine or imprisonment which will be strictly enforced. 

Regulation 17. — All complaints in relation to nuisances and 
sources of filth, injurious to the public health and safety, must be 
made in writing to the Board of Health, with a description of said 



25 

nuisance and of the premises on which it exists, with the owner's 
name, if known to the complainant. Such complaints must bear the 
signature of the complainant. Whenever such complaint shall be 
made as aforesaid, the Board of Health will proceed to examine the 
premises complained of, and will take measures to abate the nuisance, 
if such is found to exist. 

Fully believing that a large proportion of contagious diseases orig- 
inate from unsanitary conditions, we trust we shall have the aid of 
all citizens and property owners in carrying ovit the above regula- 
tions, which are based on statute laws and the sanitary rules of other 
large towns.

REPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OF POOR. 



To the Citizens of Hyde Park: 

For the first time since the inauguration of our town a 
majority only of the overseers of the poor append their 
signatures to the annual report of the department under 
their charge. Our late associate, Mr. Joel F. Goodwin, 
was first elected a member of this board in 1874, and 
since then, with the exception of two years, '76, '77, has 
served continuously until removed by death. Of his ex- 
cellent qualities, both of judgment and kindness of heart, 
it is not, perhaps, for us to speak. Suffice it to say, that 
while he was ever mindful that he must be just before he 
was generous, the deserving poor found in him a kind 
friend, and at the same time he jealously guarded the in- 
terests of the town. 

During the past year there has been no great business 
depression, or any special cause for destitution, yet 
through the influences of misfortune, attended in many 
cases by those of intemperance with its far-reaching evil 
results, the number of applicants for aid is largely in ex- 
cess of that of many years. Under the present laws, with 
the lapse of time, the increase of paupers consequent upon 
the natural growth of the town will become more apparent. 

In the detailed statement hereto appended there ap- 
pears an item which may need some explanation. A 
large part of " temporary aid " should be charged to 
"military aid " which does not properly come under the 
direction of this department. As there was no special 



27 



appropriation for the purpose, the amount $255, was 
drawn from the poor fund, one-half to be refunded by the 
state. A separate appropriation should be made, as is 
done in other towns. 

We acknowledge the receipt of -$5.00 from Henry B. 
Terry, Esq., donated by some unknown friend for the 
purchase of Thanksgiving dinners for the deserving poor.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC 
LIBRARY. 



The circulation of the Library during the past year 
shows a very slight change from that of the previous 
year, while the number of books and magazines used in 
the reading room has greatly increased, owing probably 
to the improvement in the lighting of the room. 

Since the issue of the last supplementary catalogue, 
nearly 1,700 volumes have been added, making it desir- 
able to print a new supplement, which is now ready for 
the press. It has also made it necessary to procure sever- 
al new book cases. These cases occupy all the space 
available for that purpose in our present quarters, and in 
the near future the further growth of the Library will de- 
mand increased accommodations. 

In this connection it may be well to call the attention 
of the town to the fact that it is possible to furnish the 
library and reading room with such accommodations as 
are desirable with little or no increase in the annual ex- 
pense. The town already pays as rent for the rooms now 
used the interest on '$10,000; the trustees have a fund of 
over $5,000 available for this purpose. The two sums 
would erect a building which would not only supply all 
the room needed, but at the same time by its external 
beauty, be a source of pride and gratification to all our 
citizens. 

The proportion of fiction added during the present 
year has been somewhat less than in previous years, and 
the trustees would call especial attention to the works on 



31 

American Biography, Natural History and Geography; 
and to the French and German books which have been 
recently received. The aim of the Board in the purchase 
of books has been, so far as possible, to furnish instruction 
to the readers, and, at the very least, harmless recreation. 
If in spite of their care any books of doubtful character 
find their way into the Library, the Trustees will be glad 
to have their attention called to such books, that they may 
be withdrawn from circulation. 

A blank book for queries and answers was placed 
on the Librarian's desk some time since, but its 
use thus far has not been very extensive. It is hoped, 
however, that when its advantages are better understood, 
it will serve as the vehicle of much useful information. 

By virtue of a recent statute of the Commonwealth, 
the Town Treasurer becomes ex-ofricio the treasurer of 
the Library Board. This will account for the fact that 
Mr. Gridley, who has served the Board so long and so 
acceptably in this capacity, is no longer its treasurer. 

An unusually large number of books have been given 
to the library as will appear by the following list. 

Washington, 18 volumes. 

Washington, 13 pamphlets. 

Commonwealth of Mass., 5 volumes. 

City of Boston, 1 volume. 

Mrs. E. H. Webster, 1 volume. 

William Ganzhorn, 14 volumes. 

Hubert Stone, 11 volumes. 

F. B. Webster, 1 volume. 

Andrew Washburn, U. S. Census Report, 

26 volumes. 
For the Trustees, 

HENRY B. MINER, Chairman.

ENGINEERS' REPORT. 



To the Honorable Board op Selectmen: 

Gentlemen : We herewith present to you our annual 
report for the year ending January 31st, 1890, together 
with the reeorcl of fires and losses. Some changes 
have been made by us which we feel are for the better. 
Soon after our appointment we issued orders that on 
first alarms of fire only one Hose Company, Chemical, 
and Hook & Ladder should respond and other com- 
panies to remain at quarters twenty minutes for a 
second alarm, instead of running all companies as before, 
the two Hose companies at Engine house to alternate 
monthly on first alarms. Electric lights have been put 
in the Engine house and are so arranged that the whole 
lower floor can be lighted the moment an alarm sounds, 
being much quicker than the old method and doing away 
with oil lamps. In fact everything has been done to 
facilitate the getting of apparatus to fires as quickly as 
possible. The need of a better alarm was brought to our 
attention and we finally decided to purchase a Crosby 
Steam Fire alarm whistle which by permission of the 
Electric Light and Power Co. we placed on their Build- 
ing, they agreeing to blow the same for fires. 

We have inspected the hose now in use and find that 
there should be at least a thousand dollars spent for new 
hose as soon as practicable, as about 2000 feet now in 
use is over eight years old and is fast going out of use 
through age, which leaves us with about 1700 feet that 
is good and dependable. 



35 

HYDRANTS. 

This branch of our Fire Department requires prompt 
action, we think, with a view to giving- to the property 
created here in the last few years that protection which 
suitable hydrant service alone can give. 

When the water works were constructed five years ago 
and when the town contracted for 100 hydrants the whole 
scope of the water system as then contemplated was on 14 
miles of mains and those 100 hydrants were placed there- 
on. But our town has grown since then and the water 
works have kept pace with this growth until there are 
now 24 miles of mains, the 10 miles additional having 
scarcely a hydrant upon them. We earnestly recommend 
to the town to take immediate measures to have from 50 
to 60 more hydrants, provided a contract can be made for 
the same, as will not materially increase the present cost 
of our hydrant service. 

An ample hydrant service will frequently remove the 
necessity of long lines of hose and will thus save much 
expense in wear and tear of same, and, moreover, the 
shorter the lines of hose the more quickly can streams of 
water be put upon a fire and the more effective will those 
streams be. 

FIRE ALARM. 

This branch of our department we found in need of some 
attention and at request of Mr. Hawley, steward of en- 
gine house, who has had the management of this branch, 
he was furnished with the necessary tools at a very small 
expense, and during the year has made many improve- 
ments in the same, saving the town considerable expense 
of hiring Boston parties as heretofore. The line has 
been put into two circuits so that in case of an accident 
on the line a part of it remains in use, instead of rendering 
the whole line useless until repaired as before, and here 



36 

we will say that the fire alarm has become a very impor- 
tant factor in the fire department, enabling us to get 
alarms as soon as fires are discovered and saving- a good 
deal of valuable time. We earnestly recommend the pur- 
chase of eight more alarm boxes in order to give the 
same protection to portions of our town that are enjoyed 
by those that have them. We have now about 14 miles 
of wire on two circuits and 10 fire alarm boxes, two 15 
inch tapper gongs, one at engine house and one at elec- 
trict light station, one tower striker on M. E. church bell, 
one tapper at Corson's stable, also, tappers at houses of 
Chief Hilton and Assistant Engineer Sweet, also, in 
houses of four members of department, at Balkam's lum- 
ber yard a tapper and button, the current being furnished 
from a 56 cell battery located in basement of engine house 
and under care of E. A. Hawley, steward of engine house. 
The fire alarm is now in good order and with the same 
care and attention it has had during the past year, we be- 
lieve it will do all that is claimed for it. We would urge 
the town to extend the system so as to give all parts of 
our town the protection a good fire alarm affords. The 
town has been very fortunate in having but few fires as 
the following list of alarms will show.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



To the Citizens of Hyde Park: 

The committee having charge of the public schools 
would respectfully submit the following report touching 
the matters placed in their charge by your confidence 
under the laws of the Commonwealth. 

ORGANIZATION OF THE COMMITTEE. 

The committee was called together shortly after the 
March election and organized by choice of Charles G. 
Chick, chairman, and Richard M. Johnson, secretary. The 
rules and regulations of the previous board were then 
adopted and sub-committees appointed by the chairman 
and approved by the committee as required by the rules. 

SUB-COMMITTEES. 

High School, B. C. Vose, Edmund Davis, A. Washburn. 
Grew School, Edmund Davis, Louise M. Wood. 
Fairmount School, A. Washburn, R. M. Johnson. 
Greenwood School, R. M. Johnson, C. G. Chick. 
Damon School, C. G. Chick, B. C. Yose. 
Butler School, Louise M. Wood. 
Evening Schools, Edmund Davis, B. C. Yose. 
Industrial School, A. Washburn, Louise M. Wood. 

At the time of organization Mr. Vose was unable to 
be present by reason of the sickness which soon termi- 
nated fatally. The committee upon receiving news of his 
death held a special meeting, delegated the chairman and 
secretary to attend the funeral services, and appointed 
Mr. Davis and Mrs. Wood a committee to prepare and 



present resolutions. This committee submitted the fol- 
lowing, which were adopted by a unanimous vote of 
the board and entered upon our records. 

" Resolved, That we mourn with deep sorrow the death of Benj. 
C. Vose, a valued member of this hoard. 

Resolved, That his large experience as a successful teacher in 
former years, his keen insight into and intelligent appreciation of 
the needs of our schools, and his sound judgment made him a wise 
and safe counsellor in all matters which came up for deliberation in 
the board. 

Resolved, That we recall with pride and gratitude his fearlessness 
in the discharge of duty, his careful and painstaking labors in what- 
ever was assigned him to do, his readiness to analyze and weigh the 
merits of any subject under discussion, and the manliness and cour- 
age with which he maintained his convictions at all times and at 
whatever cost. 

Resolved, That in his death we lose a genial and pleasant associate, 
a steadfast friend, an able and earnest worker in the cause of educa- 
tion, a public spirited citizen and an honest, pure-minded man. 

Resolved, That with this realizing sense of our own loss we can 
and do most deeply and tenderly sympathize witli those nearest and 
dearest to him in the far greater loss which they have sustained. 

Resolved, That these resolutions be entered at length upon the 
records of the board and a copy transmitted to the family of our late 
associate. 

The vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Vose was 
subsequently filled in convention with the selectmen by 
the choice of Edward S. Hathaway. 

Mr. Hathaway as a new member did not wish to 
act as chairman of the High school committee but pre- 
ferred an assignment to the Greenwood school. Mr. 
Johnson at once resigned as chairman of the Greenwood 
and was appointed to that position upon the High school 
committee, and Mr. Hathaway was thereupon appointed 
to the chairmanship of the Greenwood school and to all 
other positions assigned to Mr. Vose.

In addition to the amounts which appear in the forego- 
ing statistics as having been expended in school inciden- 
tals at the respective school buildings, a further sum of 
•1460.30 has been expended in incidentals of such a na- 
ture that they affect all of the schools alike and cannot 
be readily apportioned to the several schools. 

APPROPRIATIONS AND EXPENDITURES, 

At the annual meeting in March the town appropri- 
ated for its schools the following amounts : 

For salaries, janitors and fuel, 
text books and supplies, 
incidentals, 
evening schools, 

Unexpended balance from last year 

Salaries, janitors and fuel,

The town has thus placed at our disposal the gross 
sum of $33,005.24 for school purposes. In December, 
at our request, -|500 was transferred from the appropriation 
for text books and supplies to the account of school 
incidentals.

The changes made at the High school building during 
the year largely increased the expenditures from the inci- 
dental fund. New seats and desks were purchased for 
the new room, the walks and terrace were concreted, and 
various items of minor importance caused an outlay of 
about -$600, and so exhausted the incidental appropriation 
that the transfer above stated became necessary- The 
bills of this department are substantially paid to the end of 
the financial year, and as will be seen small unexpended 
balances remain. The large amount paid for text 
books and supplies covers outstanding bills of last year 
to the amount of several hundred dollars. We have on 
hand the sum of $42.47 of Mass. school fund, and have 
used during the year -$33.75 for reference books. It 
will be seen by comparison that your schools have 
been carried on at a cost of about $2500 less than last 
year. In making this statement the cost of new buildings 
is not included. 

TEACHERS. 

There have been but few changes in the corps of 
teachers during the year, especially is this true in the 
grammar and primary grades. The reports of the local 
committees herewith submitted will show the particular 
changes which have occurred. 

It is of great importance to our schools that 
good teachers be secured and retained as far as possi- 
ble. In the exercise of their discretion in the choice 
of teachers lies the most important duty of the com- 
mittee, and the school work will very soon show whether 
this duty has been wisely performed. With normal 
schools and training schools to fit teachers for their work 
it is possible to secure competent instructors well 
equipped for their work, but the selection must be care- 



10 

fully made as it is true that a diploma is not always conclus- 
ive proof that its holder will make a successful teacher. 

Two years ago a change was made in the schedule 
of salaries with a view to holding in your employ the 
teachers of the higher grades, and this year the sal- 
aries of the masters of the grammar schools and lady 
teachers who had been employed by the the town for eight 
or more consecutive years were increased. We hope 
these changes will enable us to keep good talent in the 
important grades of the course. 

It has been found desirable during the year to em- 
ploy competent lady assistants in the master's rooms at 
the Fairmount and Greenwood schools. These buildings 
are now fully occupied, and the care of the masters con- 
sequently increased. It seems well for the master in 
charge' to have a general oversight of the work in the 
various grades, and to extend his personal influence to all 
the pupils, for whose conduct and advancement he is held 
responsible. 

An assistant has been provided at the Grew school 
for several years and the value of the system there would 
not be questioned. We do not hesitate to say that with 
this addition to the teaching force better results will be 
possible in our large schools. 

COURSE OF STUDY. 

Very few changes have been made during the year. 
The course in physiology and hygiene has been modified to 
some extent, and some new text books adopted to meet the 
change. In this connection it seems proper to say that 
it is found almost if not quite impossible to cover the 
branches required by law in a satisfactory manner in our 
course of eight years. New requirements being made 
tend to take the time and attention from a number of 



11 

branches which formerly filled the greater part of the 
school curriculum. The result to those who have 
closely watched our schools for a number of years is ap- 
parent. The tendency is to know something of a large 
number of branches rather than to have a complete 
knowledge of a few. We are firmly of the opinion 
that the same standard of scholarship is not to be ex- 
pected in each of the required subjects unless the time of 
the course is extended. 

SUPPLEMENTAL HEADING. 

A sub-committee (Mr. Washburn and Mrs. Wood) was 
appointed last spring to act with the masters upon this 
matter, as the old books had long been in use and a change 
seemed desirable. This Committee made a careful examina- 
tion of the many publications now in the market, and re- 
ported in favor of an entire change of books and recom- 
mended several series of readers and other publications for 
use in the new course. These recommendations were 
adopted in full committee, and the new books were placed 
in the schools at the beginning of this school year. These 
books contain much general information and are especially 
adapted for sight reading. The change meets the ap- 
proval of teachers and pupils. 

music. 
The instruction in music has continued in charge of 
Mr. H. J. Whittemore assisted by his daughter Miss 
Mary E. Whittemore. In order that the work might 
be improved, if possible, a special committee consisting 
of Mr. Hathaway and Mrs. Wood was appointed to con- 
fer with the instructors and report what, if any, change 
in the course or methods seemed desirable. Some new 
charts have been adopted which we hope will prove ben- 
eficial to the course. 



12 

SEWING. 

Last year sewing was introduced, and one lesson 
each week given to the girls of the fifth and sixth 
classes. This has been changed so that the lessons are 
now given to the girls of the eighth and ninth grades. The 
time of the fifth and sixth grades being so much occupied 
with other important work it seemed best to relieve 
them of this matter and place it earlier in the course. 
Two teachers are employed, one being assigned to the 
Grew and Damon, and the other to the Greenwood 
and Fairmount schools. 

ATTENDANCE. 

It has been the policy of the committee to keep the 
school buildings clean, and to improve the sanitary con- 
dition as much as possible. Disinfectants are furnished 
and freely used in the school rooms and outbuildings. 
Care has been taken to comply strictly with the laws for 
the prevention of the spread of contagious diseases. It 
is with pleasure that we say that the schools have been 
substantially free from these diseases during the year. 
The measles prevailed to some extent in the Grew and 
Greenwood districts last spring, and slightly affected the 
attendance. The High school suffered some from this 
cause. An evil exists at the Damon schools and affects 
the average attendance materially. It was referred to 
last year by the local committee. It arises from the fact 
that pupils enter and enroll as members of the school, 
attend for a few days or weeks, then are absent for a time, 
and as we are informed are in attendance at private 
schools; this not only reduces the average attendance but 
retards the work of the individual pupil and affects the 
whole class. The tables annexed to this report show the 
per cents, of attendance for the year. 



13 

TRUANCY. 

The Committee has received notice from the County 
Commissioners that a county truant school has been es- 
tablished at Walpole. This will meet a long-felt want, as 
pupils who have an inclination to play truant will be re- 
strained by the knowledge that the town now has a place 
for their commitment. Heretofore it has been impossible 
to enforce the law because of the indisposition of magis- 
trates to send children to industrial schools or penal in- 
stitutions for this cause. 

ORDERS OF INSPECTION OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS. 

Sometime in February of last year orders were re- 
ceived from Lemuel Pope of the State Police and Deputy 
for this district, requiring very material and costly changes 
to be made in our school buildings. These changes were 
ordered upon the assumption by the inspectors that the 
means of egress were insufficient in case of fire. The orders 
were similar as touching each building. The board of last 
year caused some estimates to be made as to the cost of 
the changes, and found the full expense to the town 
would be about eight thousand dollars. In view of the 
great expense and the fact that the Committee after care- 
ful investigation believed many of these changes unneces- 
sary and some of them detrimental to the very purposes 
for which they were ordered, this committee did not feel 
justified in making the outlay without having the whole 
matter considered by the town. The selectmen at our re- 
quest brought this subject before you at a town meeting, 
and its further consideration was placed in the hands of a 
special committee. We are informed that the orders have 
been materially modified and largely complied with as 
modified. 

At the time of the above orders others were received 



14 

by the Committee from the same source, requiring - better 
means of ventilation for all of the school buildings but 
no system was suggested in the orders, nor would the 
state authorities recommend any system and assure us 
that when put in use its result would be satisfactory. 
These orders took the same course of those first named, 
and since the reference of these matters to a special com- 
mittee this board has take no action in the premises. We 
feel the town has placed the matters in the care of a com- 
petent committee, and their action will fully appear when 
they shall report to the town. 

PRESENTS. 

In has been the custom for the school children to col- 
lect money among themselves for the purpose of making- 
presents to their respective teachers at the close of the 
school year and sometimes at Christmas. This may seem 
a commendable thing, and evidence of that appreciation 
desirable on the part of the children for their teachers. 
Our public schools are for all classes and conditions, the 
rich and the poor are upon an equal here, and all things 
which serve to make distinctions or to create ill feeling's 
between pupils should be discouraged. These collections 
often compel contributions from those who can ill afford 
them, because to refuse may place a child at disadvantage 
among- his classmates. We believe that no child in our 
public schools should be put in a position where he will 
be made to feel or apologize for the pecuniary condition 
of himself or his parents. In this view of the matter the 
following rule has been adopted during the year: 

"That no collections or subscriptions of money shall 
be taken in the public schools for the purpose of making- 
presents to teachers or other persons without special 
permission from the School Board."

FLAGS. 

During the year public-spirited citizens have presented 
your several school buildings with large and beautiful 
flags of our national design. It is with pleasure that 
we here acknowledge the same, and we believe that we 
fully represent the sentiment of our fellow citizens when 
we extend the thanks of our town to the various 
donors for their gifts. We believe that love of country 
and a pride in all that stands for it and its institutions lie 
at the foundation of good citizenship, and that no oppor- 
tunity should be lost to firmly implant these patriotic 
ideas in the minds of children of our schools. 

From the funds placed at our disposal for the care and 
improvement of the school property we have provided 
for each building a suitable staff, from which will here- 
after be displayed during the sessions of school, the flag 
of our country, and we feel certain that the inspiration 
of these banners will tend to make the coming genera- 
tion loyal citizens and firm supporters of our free govern- 
ment. If the children are early impressed with that love 
and reverence for our flag which comes with a full knowl- 
edge of what it has cost in the lives and fortunes of 
their forefathers to establish and maintain its honor and 
integrity, we feel sure that should occasion hereafter call, 
these children who assemble each day under its shadow 
will stand manfully for its defence whenever and where- 
ever assailed. 

CONCLUSION. 

It has been the aim of your Committee to improve the 
public schools wherever opportunity offered, and to keep 
the standard as high as possible. We are well aware that 
the real results of the work of the year can not be 
known, for, relating as it does to mental development 
and formation of character it can not be measured. Time 



16 

will only show whether our school training is success- 
ful in producing well-trained men and women. 

It must not be forgotten that each year finds new 
pupils for each teacher, nor must we forget that while to 
outward appearance our schools seem nearly the same 
each year, yet they are not the same. So it often happens 
that teachers and methods that have met with marked suc- 
cess one year may prove almost or quite a failure the next 
year because of changed conditions and relations. The 
natures of the pupils, their habits of life and thought, 
their home care and training all enter into this problem 
and become parts of the final result of their school work. 

The school is not a machine shop where all children 
irrespective of these conditions can be put through the 
various grades and come out finished alike, and alike cap- 
able of the duties of life. 

The work of the school must be elastic, touching each 
child where the need appears, and this need must be 
watched for and met by the care and ingenuity of the 
teacher. It is these constantly changing conditions that 
require expert teachers and that constant vigilance of the 
Committee that the pupils may at all times have that kind 
of instruction best suited to them. Nor is the parent 
excused from his share in this watchfulness, for he should 
aid the teacher with his confidence, and assist him to 
rightly understand the characteristics of his child, that 
the methods of instruction may be properly adapted to 
his wants. 

After all the real test of improvement will be whether 
our schools are making better citizens than formerly, and 
not whether the pupils are more expert in the branches 
of the course. The tendency we admit is to apply the 
latter rather than the former rule, but the future will 
hold our schools responsible for the kind of men they are 



17 

training without special regard to their expert knowledge 
in this or that science. We are not to be understood that a 
good knowledge of the branches required in the schools is 
not essential, for we maintain to the contrary, and firmly 
assert that the mental power gained in the complete mas- 
tery of our common school course is an important element 
in the success of the children in after life. While this is 
held important we are not unmindful that moral and physi- 
cal culture are not to be neglected or forgotten in the 
school work. We have spared no effort to have all of 
the children of the town without regard to class or con- 
dition provided with an opportunity for obtaining the 
care, instruction, and discipline afforded by properly con- 
ducted public schools. We hope the future will show 
that our efforts have been well directed, and that the 
school work of the year has been in every way successful. 
We would not conclude this report without express- 
ing our appreciation of the material aid given by our 
fellow-citizens, the co-operation of a faithful corps of 
teachers, and the uniform courtesy of the patrons of the 
schools, and we cheerfully say that these have been po- 
tent factors in whatever success may have attended our 
labors during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES G. CHICK, Chairman. 
Hyde Pakk, Jan. 21th, 1889. 

At the regular meeting of the School Committee, held 
this day the foregoing report was submitted by the Chair- 
man, and it was voted that the same be adopted as the 
report of the Committee. 

RICHARD M. JOHNSON, Secretaiw. 



SUB-COMMITTEE REPORTS. 



HIGH SCHOOL. 

Our High school continued till the close of the school 
year in June under the same instructors as last year and 
accomplished results fully equal to those of preceding- 
years. With the end of the summer term, however, 
came important changes in both the corps of teachers and 
the building. 

Owing to the resignation of Mr. Eliot who had for thir- 
teen years so creditably to himself and to the school con- 
ducted its career, the Committee were obliged to seek 
another principal, and placed Jere. M. Hill, M. A., of 
Bangor, Me., a gentleman of ample scholarship and ex- 
perience, at the head of the school ; Miss Carrie B. Morse 
of Charlestown was placed in the position made vacant by 
the resignation of Miss Fanny G. Merrick. Miss Morse has 
charge of four classes in English and one in Latin, and was 
highly recommended as an instructor. The large increase 
in the membership of the school at the beginning of the 
term in October rendered the employment of an additional 
teacher imperative, and Mr. Geo. F. Eldridge of the 
School of Technology, and formerly a graduate of this 
institution, was placed in charge of two classes in alg*ebra, 
two in geometry, and one in English, and is doing good 
work. 

The changes in the building- made necessary by the 
growth of the school were planned and conducted by a 
special committee appointed at a meeting of the town in 
July, and were begun in the summer vacation, and com- 
pleted October 15th. The present needs of the school 



19 

have been met by the addition of an ell 40 x 70 feet to 
rear of the main building, giving one large room in the 
upper and two smaller ones in the lower story, besides dress- 
ing rooms, closets, etc., which were much needed. Of the 
labors of this committee much might be said. In the 
short time given them and with the very unfavorable 
weather for building operations, much was accomplished. 
The new rooms are well arranged, well lighted, tastefully 
finished, and for the present are ample as to room. The 
grounds have been much improved, graded and cleared 
up. The old coat of paint on the main building has 
given place to a soberer and a more pleasing hue, and 
everything put in as good condition as the appropriation 
would allow. One room in the new addition and one in 
old building are poorly ventilated, but the special com- 
mittee of the town on ventilation has this matter in hand, 
and this trouble will, we trust, be speedily remedied. It is 
a matter of some uncertainty as to whether the single fur- 
nace under the new addition will satisfactorily heat that 
part of the building in zero weather. The mild weather 
so far this season has been in our favor. It is very 
probable that another furnace will have to be added be- 
fore next winter. 

The school opened October 15th with 169 scholars, 75 in 
the entering class, the largest in the history of the school; 
and although it is now in very much better condition as 
to accommodations than for some years, the time is not 
far distant when with the same ratio of increase as this 
year our present comfortable quarters will be outgrown 
and larger ones demanded. In all probability the Fall 
term of 1890 will begin with 200 scholars, and that of 
1891 with 230 to 250, and this number is more than the 
present building will hold with proper regard for sanitary 
conditions, so that the question of still further accommo- 



20 

dations will be before us next year, 1891. This in- 
creased demand for a higher education is very gratifying 
to the Committee, and they earnestly recommend that the 
scientific department of the course be encouraged by a 
fair supply of apparatus and material for laboratory work. 
For about $500 such articles as are needed could be ob- 
tained, and with an extension of this part of the course 
better facilities would be given towards fitting young men 
for the demands of active life. 

In closing we desire to express the grateful apprecia- 
tion by both scholars and teachers of the concrete side- 
walk laid by the town in front of the school grounds. 
This improvement in the means of access to the school was 
a welcome one, and has added much to the comfort of all 
who have occasion to use it. 

RICHARD M. JOHNSON, 
EDMUND DAVIS, 
ANDREW WASHBURN, 

Sub-Committee. 



BUTLER SCHOOL. 

The little building known as the Butler schoolhouse still 
shelters daily, under its time-honored roof, two interesting 
and pleasant primary classes belonging to ttie Greenwood 
school. Miss Grace B. Gidney is the teacher in charge, 
and as I have visited the school from time to time dur- 
ing the year, I have always found the children bus} r and 
happy, and the teacher doing steady, faithful work. 
There is a noticeable spirit of kindliness, harmony and 
good feeling prevading the school. 

LOUISE M. WOOD. 



21 

DAMON SCHOOL. 

The work at the Damon school is progressing well in 
view of the changes that have occurred there. The 
number of pupils remain about as reported last year with 
a fair average attendance. 

The transfer of Mr. Cross to the Fairmount school has 
of course interfered to some extent with the work of the 
school. Mr. Cross, having been here for so many years, 
had a strong hold upon the patrons and pupils of the 
school and was thoroughly acquainted with the condition 
and needs of every department. 

The full committee not making the transfer until late 
in August gave us but a short time to fill the vacancy. 

Mr. S. S. Crocker, a teacher of long experience with 
good recommendations, was placed in charge of the school 
at the beginning of this school year, and remained about 
one month, when he resigned to accept a business engage- 
ment. We do not feel warranted in speaking of the 
character of his work in view of the shortness of his ser- 
vice in the school. His resignation came at an unfor- 
tunate time and made it difficult to find an available 
teacher with recognized merit for the position. 

We corresponded with all masters upon the secretary's 
list and had personal interviews with several ; nearly 
all were engaged in teaching and did not desire to 
change. 

Mr. J. S. Manter was finally selected, and has been in 
charge of the school since the last of September. He is 
a Normal graduate and has had several years of experi- 
ence in a similar position. So far as we have observed 
Mr. Manter seems to be doing very creditable work. 

Miss Mary D. Pollard, also a Normal graduate and a 
teacher of experience, was appointed to the vacancy 
caused by the resignation of Miss Sears. She is a con- 



22 • 

scientious, painstaking teacher, and her work shows the 
value of special training. 

Mrs. Walcott, who has heretofore so kindly made this 
school an object of her bounty, kindly presented it with 
a large flag in September, As early as possible a staff 
was provided, and this school enjoys the distinction of 
being the first in town to raise a flag. 

The school property is in good condition and no extra- 
ordinary outlay will be needed the coming year. 
CHARLES G. CHICK, 
E. S. HATHAWAY, 

Local Committee. 



FAIRMOUNT SCHOOL. 

On account of ill health and to meet suggestions of the 
committee, Mr. Howard requested leave of absence, which 
was granted for a year. 

Mr. E. W. Cross, for many years in charge of the 
Damon school, was transferred to the Fairmount school. 
His intimate knowledge of the school work in our town, 
and his entire familiarity with the attainments of the 
pupils and the methods of instruction practised here have 
operated very favorably in preventing what might other- 
wise have caused a serious break in the progress of the 
school. Mr. Cross has fully sustained his previous excellent 
reputation and the discipline and progress of the school 
in scholarship deserves special commendation. 

The transfer of Miss Howes to the Greenwood school 
caused a vacancy in the twelfth class, which was filled 
very satisfactorily by the appointment of Miss A. M. 
Hood to the position. The other teachers remain the 
same as last year and continue to fill with good results 
their various positions. 



23 

Instructions in needlework have been limited to a 
weekly lesson in the eighth and ninth classes. This de- 
partment has been in charge of Mrs. D. A. Preston. A 
larger appropriation is desirable to increase the efficiency 
of our industrial instruction. 

During the year the fifth or graduating class has pur- 
chased and donated to the school the " Library of Uni- 
versal Knowledge," 15 volumes octavo. It is intended 
that this memorial offering to the school shall take the 
place of the usual present to the master, which has been 
prohibited by the committee's vote forbidding presents to 
teachers. 

The school has also received the present of a bell and 
money has been raised for two flags which will be floated 
over the building as soon as a proper staff can be put in 
place. 

In our administration of affairs the effort has been made 
to emphasize the ideas, first, that the school exists for the 
pupils and for the individual pupil, rather than the pupil 
for the school ; second, that the public schools of America 
must prepare and train the pupils for American citizenship. 

Miss H. N. Sands has just been added to the corps of 
teachers as master's assistant, and many and great advan- 
tages are expected both from her direct work in the fifth 
class and also from the opportunity given Mr. Cross to 
visit frequently different rooms and carefully supervise 
the entire work of the school. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANDREW WASHBURN, 
RICHARD M. JOHNSON, 

Committee. 



24 

GREENWOOD SCHOOL. 

But little has occurred outside the regular routine of 
school life the past year calling for special comment. 

The decease of Mr. Vose early in the school year 
caused a change in the make-up of the local committee, 
and Mr. Hathaway was assigned to the chairmanship. 

Only one change in teachers has occurred. Miss Alger, 
teacher of the twelfth class, resigned her position in April, 
and the vacancy thus created was filled by the transfer of 
Miss Evelyn S. Howes from the Fairmount school. 

The local committee feeling that better work could be 
done if the master was brought into individual contact 
with all the classes in the school, which could not be 
done as long as he was confined exclusively to the teach- 
ing of the fifth class, recommended to the full Board the 
appointment of an assistant for the master's room. This 
recommendation was unanimously adopted by them and 
we were fortunate in securing the services of Mrs. Josie 
T. Reid, a graduate of Farmington Normal school, who 
comes to us well recommended from Gardner, Mass. Al- 
though this plan has been in operation only a short time 
the advantages from the movement are already being felt, 
and we are confident that the results will vindicate the 
wisdom of the step. 

The average attendance of the school has been some- 
what reduced in the lower classes by an outbreak of 
measles in the early months of the year, and in the pre- 
vailing influenza, which has marked the past few weeks, 
the Greenwood has come in for its share. 

The school building is in good order and with the excep- 
tion of the laying of a concrete walk, which ought to be 
done, no great outlay will be required on the building or 
grounds. In compliance with the order of the inspectors 
of buildings a stand pipe has been put in, and the water 



25 

is kept constantly turned on, lines of hose being attached 
on the different floors in readiness for instant use. With 
the method of heating employed, and the protection af- 
forded by the stand pipe and hose, we feel that the dam- 
age from fire has been reduced to the minimum. 

Your Committee desire to again call your attention to the 
growth of this section of the town. There are now in the 
building 344 pupils. Some of the grades are already crowded. 
The town will do well to bear in mind that at no distant day 
additional accommodations for the grammar grades will 
have to be provided in this district. Should the rubber 
works recently established near the River street station 
bring to that locality any large number of children, and 
should this number be further increased by the coming 
of other industries to this section, as is contemplated, the 
consideration of the question of increased accommoda- 
tion may be forced upon us at an early date. 

E. S. HATHAWAY, 
CHARLES G. CHICK, 

Local Committee. 



GREW SCHOOL. 

This school has fortunately met with little change in 
its corps of instructors during the year just closed. Miss 
Farnsworth, a highly esteemed teacher, resigned in May, 
and her class was taken by Miss Harriet Gordon of 
Woodstock, Conn., a lady of considerable experience. At 
the beginning of the September term, with a view of in- 
creasing the general efficiency, Miss Bertram was placed 
in charge of the seventh class, Miss Gordon of the eighth, 
and Misses Gushee and Harlow of the ninth classes. The 
effect of this seems to have been beneficial. Robert Scott, 
who had been janitor of the building for quite a number 



26 

of years, resigned the position a few weeks ago and John 
Peterson was appointed in his place. Mr. Peterson has 
had experience in the work required as janitor of Christ 
Church and of the Y. M. C. A. rooms. 

The pupils of this school number about the same as at 
the beginning of the year. The attendance has been very 
good. Relief from the former overcrowded state of 
many of the rooms has given a more satisfactory grading, 
more personal attention of the teachers to the wants of 
the individual scholar, and greater ease of discipline. 
The quiet, orderly and respectful deportment in some of 
the rooms is very noticeable and gratifying. We under- 
stand that corporal punishment is now rarely administered 
and only when other means have failed to secure ready 
obedience. 

So far as we are enabled to judge the classes have 
made fair progress in study during the year, and doubt- 
less equal to that of the other schools in town. If tbe 
advancement in this direction has not been all which 
could be desired, we think it is due not to lack of effort 
on the part of scholars or teachers so much as to the 
tendency of the present time to scatter instruction over 
so wide an area that in many instances the result is quite 
superficial. 

The Grew graduated a very large class last June. The 
class which is expected to graduate next June is even 
larger, numbering at the present time forty-seven. It is 
hoped that all of these will then prove to be well 
equipped either for more extended schooling or for busi- 
ness life. 

Voluntary contributions of teachers and pupils fur- 
nished means for the purchase of two national flags and a 
storm signal for this school. The committee caused a 
suitable flag-staff to be erected on the building, and on 



27 

Jan. 10th, after appropriate exercises by the pupils and 
others in the hall, the flag was run up and given to the 
breeze. 

During the mid-summer vacation one of the classrooms 
was re-furnished with new desks and chairs. This much 
needed improvement should be continued throughout the 
building as soon as possible. When the Grew school was 
established it was equipped, as we are informed, with furni- 
ture procured at second hand, and comprising a variety of 
styles. It is now old, rickety and dirty, and of various 
patterns. We hope to have power given us to replace 
these with modern and suitable equipments. The walls 
of the room should be thoroughly cleansed and tinted. 
This was last done about ten years ago. Such work is 
now needed, not for sanitary reasons but for its educating 
influences. The six furnaces by which heat is provided 
for the building seem to us to be a very cumbrous and 
costly means to that end. They are frequently in need 
of repair, take up much of the janitor's time which 
might be profitably given to other necessary matters, 
give very unequal amounts of heat to the different rooms 
and cause a great quantity of dust in the basement, 
much of which finds its way through the cracks in the 
flooring above and mingles with the air which the schol- 
ars in the lower rooms breathe. On every account we 
think it would be a wise policy to remove and sell these 
furnaces and heat the building by steam, as is now be- 
ing so satisfactorily done in the Greenwood school. The 
school is well supplied with books and apparatus, except 
that more reference books in the higher classes are needed.

.EVENING SCHOOLS. 

Evening schools were opened early in December ; one 
in the Grew building with Mr. Rice as master and Miss 
Bertram as assistant ; the other in the Damon building, 
with Mr. Eldridge as master and Mr. F. W. Howard as 
assistant, who shortly after resigning, was succeeded by 
Mrs. Merrill. Both these schools began with a large num- 
ber of scholars, more in fact than could be at once accom- 
modated. Though the number has somewhat diminished 
since, the attendance is yet very good, averaging 33 in 
the Damon, and a trifle less in the Grew. The majority 
of the scholars are engaged in work during the day in the 
various manufactories. Nearly half of them are females. 

It is a source of gTatification to the committee that 
while at first quite a number of the occasional attendants 
at these schools seemed to 5*0 there for fun rather than 
anything else, the most of the regular pupils make a 
serious business of it and undoubtedly derive much benefit.

INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL. 

The limited appropriation for the year provided the 
means only to keep this work in operation during the 
summer vacation. The two schools, one for sewing and 
one for carpentry were well attended, and the interest 
well sustained. Mrs. W. A. Boardman had charge of the 
sewing school, and Mr. J. E. Webb of the pupils in car- 
pentry. Every year the subject of manual training is 
demanding and receiving increased attention, and we 
believe that Hyde Park should do more, rather than less 
in this direction. A. WASHBURN,
