SELECTMEN'S REPORT. 



Fellow Citizens of Hyde Park : 

The Board of Selectmen submit the following- as their 
annual report for the year ending January 31, 1900 : 

Before presenting the details of the several departments, 
we first call attention to the subject of 

FINANCE. 

The funded debt of the town January 31, 1899, was as 

follows : 

Stoue Crushing Plant loan, $ 1,000 

School Buildings bonds, 10,000 

Sewerage bonds, 145,000 

Public Library Building bonds, 25,000 

$181,000 

111 addition to the interest payment the town has paid 

during the year $10,000 of the above bonds, and as no new 

bonds were issued, the total funded debt January 31, 1900, 

has been reduced to $171,000. Further, the town paid the 

following amounts which were appropriated in 1898 : 

Public Library land, $ 6,500 

Norway Park, 1,200 

Widening Hyde Park Avenue, 14,000 

#24,700 

These items, together with the grade crossing payment 
and the increased Metropolitan Assessments, brought the 
tax rate to a high figure, notwithstanding economical town 
expenditures. In past years it has been the custom in 
special town meetings to make appropriations one year to 



be paid the next. As no money was appropriated in 1899 
to be paid in 1900, we have good reason to expect a lower 
tax rate this. year. 

METROPOLITAN ASSESSMENTS. 

The subject of Metropolitan Assessments is one of great 
importance to the town. They first made their appearance 
in our financial affairs three years ago, and have increased 
in amount each year since. 

The past year the town paid as follows : 

Metropolitan Sewer, $13,345.32 

High Level Sewer, l,89fi.41 

Metropolitan Water, 758.55 



.$16,000.28 
These amounts, with the Readville grade crossing assess- 
ment of $8,873,14, make a total of $24,873.42 paid, in the 
expenditure of which the town had no voice. 

READVILLE GRADE CROSSING. 

According to the reports received from the State Auditor 
from time to time, it appears that there has been expended 
to Nov. 1, 1899, in connection with the work of abolishing 
the grade crossings at Readville and for the new bridge at 
Allen street, about $855, 0J0 exclusive of land damages. 

The work is now practically complete. Under the Mas- 
sachusetts statute abolishing grade crossings, the town's 
share would have been ten per cent., but the Legislature of 
1896, by a special Act, fixed the proportion to be paid by 
Hyde Park in this case at 13 1-2 per cent. The assessment 
is to be divided into twenty annual payments which will vary 
each year. The first, made in December last, was $8873.14. 

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. 
The Board reappointed Superintendent of Streets Henry 
M. Phipps, who has served the town in that capacity for 
several years and given general satisfaction. 



The town appropriated for highways $16,000, which has 
been expended in a careful manner, and no further appro- 
priation for this department was asked for. 

In addition to the general repairs necessary every year a 
large part of the money was expended for improvements of 
a permanent nature, more particularly described in the 
Superintendent of Streets' report on another page. 

NEW STREETS. 
The only new street which the town was called upon to 
accept during the year was the extension of Hyde Park 
avenue from Hawthorne street to the Trotting Park en- 
trance. This was voted in town meeting Sept. 13. No 
appropriation was made as the expense of construction was 
borne wholly by the Norfolk Suburban Street Railroad Co., 
as per agreement with the Selectmen. 

HYDE PARK AVENUE. 

The widening of Hyde Park avenue near the Boston line 
and at Cleary square, making an 80-foot street at these 
points, as decreed by the County Commissioners and voted 
by the town in 1898, more fully described in the last town 
report, was completed last spring, and the Commissioners 
have approved the work. All claims for land damages 
were settled by the Selectmen without litigation, and all 
bills have been paid. 

According to the terms of the decree the county was to 
pay the town $51)08 as its share of the cost of this improve- 
ment. In consideration of the thoroughness of the con- 
struction the Commissioners awarded the town $1207 in 
addition to the decree, and the whole amount, $7125, has 
been received by the town. 

WEST RIVER STREET WIDENING. 
On the petition of citizens a public hearing was held July 
18, before the County Commissioners on the question of 



8 

widening West River street from Fairview avenue to a 
point near the house of Thomas Wallace. 

West River street is 50 feet wide in most parts, but in 
this section, commonly called " between the ponds," it was 
much narrower — at one point only 26 feet. The retaining 
walls had commenced to cave into the water, making it 
very dangerous to travel. A decree was issued by the 
Commissioners laying it out to a 50-foot width. Sept. 13 the 
town appropriated $3000 for the work, which is now com- 
plete, including the building of a new bridge and fencing, 
— all paid for within the appropriation and completed with- 
in the time named by the Commissioners. 

STREET WATERING. 

For this department the town appropriated $3500. There 
is a small balance unexpended. A new watering cart was 
purchased for use in the Readville district. New water 
cranes were erected at convenient points and the town 
divided into five districts, each with a cart. Under the di- 
rection of the Superintendent of Streets the work w T as being 
well carried on when, on June 6, a letter was received from 
the Hyde Park Water Company stating that on account of 
the small supply of water no more could be sold to the 
town for that purpose until further notice, and this condi- 
tion existed throughout the season. 

Arrangements were made with the New York, New 
Haven & Hartford Railroad and the cart in the central sec- 
tion supplied from the stand pipe at Fairmount avenue 
crossing at the same price charged by the Hyde Park 
Water Company. 

We wish to express our appreciation of the courtesies 
extended the town by the Tileston & Hollingsworth Com- 
pany, the Becker-Brainard Milling Machine Company, 
Glover & Willcomb, and the Hyde Park Electric Light Co., 



9 

all of whom supplied water to the carts in their sections of 
the town free of charge. 

STREET LIGHTS. 
The lighting of the streets, as in former years, has been 
done by the Hyde Park Electric Light Company under the 
ten-year contract made Jan. 6, 1898. During the year 
there have been added by vote of the town 3 arc and 8 in- 
candescent lights, making a total of 131 arc and 71 incan- 
descent lights. In the Clarendon Hills district, near the 
Boston line, a few oil lamps are still in use. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 
One of our first official acts was the reappointment of 
Chief of Police James McKay and the regular patrolmen, 
Daniel O'Connell, J. A. Cullen, John M. Brown, Fred C. 
Bigelow, Elmer P. Runnells, and Alexander Schwab, all of 
whom had rendered the town faithful service in previous 
years. On April 27 Chief of Police McKay tendered his 
resignation to accept a position on the State force. We 
deepty regret the loss to the town of an efficient official and 
a good citizen. To fill the vacancy the Board appointed 
patrolman Daniel O'Connell, who has been connected with 
police work in this town for twenty-nine years. Special 
officer Michael J. "Maguire was promoted to patrolman. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Selectmen appointed as engineers of the Fire 
Department, J. C. McDougald, John H. Wetherbee and 
Willis G. Robinson, each of whom has had many years' 
experience in the department. By their efficient manage- 
ment, and the good work of their men, the department is 
now in good condition. 

The Engineer's report, with the details of expenditures 
and the list of fires during the year, will be found on 
another page. 



10 
FIRE HYDRANT SERVICE. 

By vote of the town there have been added during the 
year two new hydrants, making a total of 183 hydrants now 
paid for by the town under the ten-year contract with the 
Hyde Park Water Company. 

The cost of their service to the town during the past year 
was $5,773.22. 

TOWN VAULT. 

In the Selectmen's report of last year, the town's attention 
was called to the inadequate vault room for the storage of 
the town records, as required by law. 

At the town meeting last spring $800 was appropriated 
for this purpose. 

This vote has been carried out, and we have had con- 
structed within the appropriation a new and commodious 
vault, fitted with metallic fixtures, according to law. 

ACTIONS AT LAW. 

Lomelia A. Bickford, Administratrix of the estate of Levi 
B. Bickford, vs. Town of Hyde Park. 

The action was brought in January, 1895, in the Superior 
Court for Norfolk County, to recover, as was alleged, taxes 
paid by the deceased on land on East River Street and 
Providence Street, referred to in different town reports 
since 1895. The case was tried at the May sitting, 1896, 
and upon the ruling of the Justice of the Superior Court, a 
verdict was rendered for the plaintiff for the amount of her 
claim, namely, $204.47, and interest thereon since 1878. 
The exceptions of the town to the ruling of the court were 
argued in the Supreme Judicial Court last November. By 
a decision handed down June 29, 1899, it was held that the 
action could not be maintained, and judgment has been 
entered in favor of the town. Defendant's taxable costs in 



11 

this case amounted to $63.80, which amount was applied to 
the reduction of the judgment in the following case. 

Lomelia A. Bickford vs. Town of Hyde Park (referred to 
in town reports since 1897). 

Petition returnable in November, 1897, for damages for 
injuries to her premises and well thereon by reason of the 
construction of a sewer in East River Street, and the drain- 
in or of her well. The case first came on for trial at the 

o 

May sitting of the Superior Court at Dedham, in 1898, 
when a verdict was ordered for the town. The case was 
taken to the Supreme Judicial Court by the plaiutiff, on 
exceptions, which were argued at the November sitting,. 
1898, of that court, and in July last a decision was reached 
sustaining the exceptions, and determining'that the plaintiff 
was entitled to recover; and judicially interpreting the 
Hyde Park Sewer Act. The case came on for trial again 
in the Superior Court last October, and a verdict was 
rendered for the plaintiff for $1,000. A motion for a new 
trial was made on behalf of the town, on the alleged ground 
that the verdict was excessive ; but after hearing, it was 
overruled and judgment was entered on the verdict on the 
4th of December, 1899. 

Emily R. Hawes vs. Town of Hyde Park. 

Petition for damages for injuries done to her premises by 
draining her well, more fully described in the last annual 
report. The petition is still pending. 

Mary A. E. Murphy vs. Town of Hyde Park. 

(Referred to in last annual report.) Petition for damages 
to her estate on account of the construction of Westminster 
Street, returnable in November, 1898, in the Superior 
Court, Norfolk County. This case has been settled for 
$1000. 

John J. Loud vs. Town of Hyde Park (referred to in 
last annual report) . 



12 

Petition for damages to petitioner's estate on account of 
the construction of Westminster Street, returnable in 
November, 1898, in the Superior Court, Norfolk County. 
This case has been settled for $128.21. 

The four petitions for land damages by Washburn, 
Eustis, Hurter and Bursch, growing out of taking by the 
Sewer Commissioners, under the Sewer Act, (more fully 
described in the last annual report) for sewer construction 
on the easterly side of Neponset River, are still pending. 
Hearings have been had before Charles A. Williams, Esq., 
Auditor, on different days between January 28, 1899, and 
January 13, 19G0, inclusive. The auditor made his report 
and awarded damages as follows : — 

Jennie F. Hurter, .$3000, aud interest from July 15, 1897. 

Eliza G. Washburn, .$2200 

Mary M. Bursch, $700 " " 

Mary A. Eustis, $1200 

These awards are deemed by us and the Sewer Commis- 
sioners, as well as by counsel for the town, to be excessive. 
An inspection of the auditor's reports in these cases indicates 
that evidence introduced in behalf of the town did not 
receive the consideration to which the representatives of 
the town believed it was entitled. Though requested to do 
so, the auditor declined to state in his reports the grounds 
of his finding. The auditor's reports are not decisive of 
these cases. There is a question of law raised in these 
cases that may call for a judicial interpretation by the 
court. 

Of the fifty-one petitions for land damages growing out 
of the abolishment of grade crossings, (more fully described 
in the last annual report) twenty-one have been settled ; 
three have been heard in the Superior Court, two of 
which are now pending in the Supreme Judicial Court on 
questions of law, and twenty-seven are now pending before 
the auditor. 






13 

The petitions by George S. Lee, Trustee, George S. 
Lee, Administrator, Lola 13. Page, and the Real Estate and 
Building Co., on account of decree of the County Commis- 
sioners (more fully described in the last'annual report) are 
still pending. 

The following cases, caused by sewer construction, were 
the only suits brought against the town during the past 
year. 

Charles F. Allen, et al, Trustees vs. Town of Hyde Park. 

Elizabeth S. Coleman vs. Town of Hyde Park. 

Two petitions for damages growing out of the construction 
of the town sewer through petitioners' premises between 
Beacon Street and the Neponset River. These cases were 
entered in the Superior Court in August and September, 
respectively, and are now pending before an auditor. 

Mary Gallagher vs. Town of Hyde Park. 

This is an action oi tort for $4000, brought in December, 
1899, returnable in the Superior Court next February, to 
recover for alleged personal injuries caused by the alleged 
defect in a highway, growing out of the sewer construction.

excellent condition. 

There has been 1600 feet of new paved gutters built and

Park Avenue, over Mother Brook, have been repaired. 

Twenty new sign posts have been put up during the 
year. 

Besides the general repairs that are necessary at all 
times of the year, there have been about 2000 tons of

tor of Buildings for the year ending January 31, 1900 : 

Whole number of permits issued, 116 

For new buildings, 65 

For additions and alterations, ' 51 

Number of notices sent to persons who had com-

Number of visits made to the various buildings in 
process of erection and alteration, woodwork- 
ing and machine shops, wajste boxes, back

pected under the circumstances. There has been but one 
complaint entered in regard to waste material which, on 
notice, was removed.

Having been appointed Chief of Police to take effect on 
the first day of May, last, I found everything in good condi- 
tion in and about the Station, and it 'has been my endeavor 
to keep it so. The Police Force during the past year has 
consisted of seven regular men, five being assigned to all- 
night duty. I would respectfully recommend that the tines 
received by the town in criminal cases be placed to the 
credit of the Police Department. I would also recommend 
a patrol wagon to be so constructed that it can be used as 
an ambulance. In concluding I desire to express to the 
members of the Police Force my appreciation of the good- 
will and cordial relations existing among them, and to the 
Selectmen, who have in many ways assisted me in promot- 
ing the success of the Department, I extend my thanks. 
Respectfully submitted, 

DANIEL O'CONNELL, 

Chief of Police.

engineers, five permanent men and thirty- three call men, 
making a total of 41 men. 

The excellent fire duty done by both the permanent and

REPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



The Overseers of the Poor herewith respectfully submit 
their report for the year ending January 31, 1900 : 

The additional cost of maintaining the Poor Department 
during the past year is due mainly to the increase in the 
number of pauper insane, who are supported in State insti- 
tutions at an average cost of $3.25 per week. The number 
fully supported has also increased about 25 per cent. At 
present the monthly payments for rent aggregate $62.00. 
During the year the amount paid for hospital charges and 
nursing has been unusually large, more than $500. 

The bill now before the Legislature, which provides that 
the entire cost of maintaining the pauper insane in all cities 
and towns shall be assumed by the State, if it becomes a 
law, would no doubt lessen the cost to the different muni- 
cipalities, although the expense would be assessed and form 
a part of the State tax. From the present outlook the sum 
of $8,000 will be required for the support of poor during 
the ensuing year. 

There has been a marked decrease in the number of 
travellers applying for lodging as compared with the previ- 
ous year, which indicates that the army of the unemployed 
has been very materially lessened. 

The number of persons receiving aid, with a detailed 
list of expenditures, is hereto appended : 

Whole number of persons aided, 2227 

Number of persons fully supported, 34 

Number of persons partially supported, 203 

Number of tramps lodged, 1990

REPORT OF BOARD OF HEALTH, 



To the Citizens of Hyde Park : 

We herewith present the following as our annual report 
for the year ending January 31, 1900 : 

In the early summer and spring months, as has been the 
case in former years, we received many complaints calling 
our attention to the need of better surface drainage in vari- 
ous parts of the town. These complaints were investigated 
and where a remedy or amelioration of the conditions were 
within our means, it has been applied. 

Stony Brook, from a point near West Street to the line 
of the Metropolitan Park, has been deepened and widened 
so as to furnish a better outlet for the great amount of water 
draining into it. The condition of the brook would be 
greatly improved by widening and deepening to true grade 
the channel at the northerly end towards the Boston line. 

The serious need of better drainage was also apparent 
near the N. Y., N. H. & H. Railroad, in the rear of Cor- 
son's and Raymond's stables. A suitable ditch was dug on 
the line of proposed Providence street, and cross ditches 
into the adjoining land, which have served to materially re- 
duce the amout of water usually lying stagnant in that 
locality. But to make this complete the drain should be 
cut through to Stony Brook on the westerly side of the rail- 
road, thereby furnishing not only a better outlet for water 
on the easterly side of the track, but drainage to other low 
and swampy land. 

The branch from Stony Brook just south of Clarendon 
Hills Square was also cleaned from its junction with the 
brook to Huntington Avenue, but to make this permanent 



50 

the main channel should be deepened, as has been stated 
before. 

There yet remains much that should be done in the line 
of drainage for surface water in the district lying between 
Readville Street and West River Street, which is still a 
menace to the general health of the locality, and also many 
others of lesser magnitude but of fully as great importance. 

SWILL AND GARBAGE. 

The collection of swill has been carried on as in previous 
years and the service, we have reason to believe, has been 
on the whole satisfactory. 

During the warm months we were obliged to have an ex- 
tra team in this work in order to make two collections each 
week . 

The question of garbage collection has been brought to 
our attention several times during the past 3 7 ear in connec- 
tion with numerous complaints in regard to the general cus- 
tom prevailing in the town of dumping refuse matter in airy 
convenient place or places that may be fouud about the 
town. There are probably twenty or more such places in 
and about the town, and as the matter usually dumped on 
them is not such as to create noisome odors by decaying, 
there is no present remedy if the owners of the land desire 
to use the same as a dump. However, if suitable provisions 
were made for the collection of house and store dirt, ashes, 
etc., and a dump properly cared for or the, waste matter 
destroyed, the town would present a much cleaner appear- 
ance and go far towards making Hyde Park a model town. 

We have now two horses and three wagons, with the 
other necessary equipments to carry on the swill collection, 
but have no provision for stabling or proper care of the 
same except such as we are able to hire. This state of af- 
fairs is wrong, and the property of the town cannot receive 
proper care and supervision under such conditions. 



51 



CONTAGIOUS DISEASES. 



We feel that the citizens have good cause for congratula- 
tion on the continued reduction in the number of contagious 
or preventive diseases over that of former years. 

The whole number of cases of contagious disease 
reported to the Board during the year is 110 as against 
142 in 1898 and 160 in 1897, divided as follows: — 
Diphtheria and membraneous croup, 25 cases with 3 deaths ; 
measles, 8 cases, no deaths •; typhoid fever, 17 cases, one 
death ; scarlet fever, 60 cases, one death. 

The total mortality from contagious disease for the year 
was five, as against eleven for 1898. 

The method of quarantine in contagious cases has been 
the same as in former years, and the disinfection and fumi- 
gation by formaldeheyde gas has been continued by the 
Board with very gratifying results, as has been shown. 

The number of cases of scarlet fever was doubtless in- 
creased by the mild form in which it has prevailed during, 
the past year. In many cases the symptoms were not .pro- 
nounced enough to be recognized, consequently they r were 
not reported by the parents,, and the. children returned to 
school before being free from contagion. 

During the summer we had cause to investigate several 
cases of typhoid fever that seemed to show common cause 
or causes for infection. It was found that the trouble 
could be attributed almost wholly to the milk supply 
in the families. The milkmen were instructed as to 
the proper methods for the care of their product, and since 
then there have been no cases that could be traced to that 
source. 

We have continued to furnish diphtheria anti-toxine free 
to all physicians who desired it, and in the last year we sup- 
plied them with seventy-four bottles. The anti-toxine is 
made under the supervision'of the State Board of Health and 



52 

is furnished to the town free of charge. The Board desires 
to extend its thanks to the members of the medical profes- 
sion for their promptness in reporting all cases of contagious 
diseases and their earnest efforts to carry out our regula- 
tions in regard to quarantine of suspected as well as positive 
cases, which has doubtless materially lessened the number 
of cases of contagion for the year. 

SEWERAGE. 

The ever-offensive and disease-breeding privy vault and 
cesspool are still being used to a great extent in those parts 
of the town already furnished with common sewers, but all 
those which were apparent nuisances and were brought to 
the attention of the Board, have been discontinued or tem- 
porarily remedied and allowed to remain in use only until 
such time as connection can be made with the sewer. We 
again advocate the more general use of the sewers, especial- 
ly in the central portion of the town, and trust that during 
the coming year there will be a marked increase in the number 
of connections and consequent abolishment of many sources, 
of disease. 

In closing we would once more call your attention to the- 
need of a proper building for stabling the horses and shelter 
for the wagons used by this department, and would respect- 
fully recommend that such accommodations be provided the 
coming year. It is the opinion of the Board that the only 
method of removing the causes for complaint regarding the 
unsightly dumping places is to have the work done under 
somewhat the same method as the swill collection, and at a 
common dump which can be properly cared for. 

A copy of the report of Health Officer and Inspector of 
Plumbing is appended hereto.

and place as may be designated by the Board of Examiners appointed by 
the Board of Health, as provided for in said Acts, to whom such appli- 



56 

cation shall be referred, be examined as to his qualifications for such

Section V. No person shall proceed to construct, add to, or alter any 
portion of the drainage system (except to repair leaks) of any building 
in the town of Hyde Park, until plans showing in detail the whole drain- 
age system shall have been tiled at the office of the Board of Health, upon 
blanks in such form as the Board may determine; no person shall com- 
mence work on such drainage system until the plans are accepted by the 
Inspector of Plumbing and a permit of approval granted. Plans and 
specifications shall be approved or rejected within five days of the time 
of filinc. 

Rules and regulations for material, construction, etc., may be found in 
the town by-laws. 

Regulation 9. The Board of Health hereby adjudges that the deposit 
of sputum in street cars, public buildings, or churches is a public nuis- 
ance, source of filth and cause of sickness, and hereby orders : That 
spitting upon any floor of any street car. public building or church be, 
and hereby is. prohibited. 

Fully believing that a large proportion of contagious diseases origi- 
nate from unsanitary conditioas, we trust that we shall have the aid of 
all citizens and property owners in carrying out the above regulations, 
which are based on statute laws, and the sanitary rules of our large 
towns. Respectfully submitted,

To Willard S. Everett, M. D., Chairman, and Members 
of the Board of Health, Hyde Park, Mass. 

Gentlemen : — I herewith submit to vou my third aimual 
report as Health Officer and Inspector of Plumbing for the 
year ending January 31, 1900. 

It is with pleasure that I have to report that the number 
of cases of contagious diseases has been materially reduced 
from that of former years, which can be attributed largely 
to the better understanding of the necessary requirements 
to be followed in such cases. 

Improvements have been made in appliances for the use 
of formaldeheyde gas, which have been taken advantage of 
with prospects of still better results than in former years. 

Agreeable to your orders and in accordance with plans 
and estimates made, Stony Brook, for a distance of about 
one-half a mile north of the Metropolitan Park line, has 
been widened and deepened as much as the present levels 
of the water mains, as previously located, will allow. This 
has apparently been sufficient to accomplish your desires in 
this locality. However, the condition of the brook farther 
north needs considerable outlay of money to put it in proper 
shape in order that the section lying just south of Clarendon 
Hills may be properly drained. 

The drain in the rear of the town stables and other prop- 
erty near the railroad has also been put in good condition 
and has doubtless carried off the water from that locality, 
as well as it can be done until further improvements 'are 
made in the channel of Stony Brook. 

The horses and wagons used in the swill collections are 
in good condition generally, and the building covering the 
dump will continue to be of good service with few minoi' 
repairs. A drain has been put in from the tank, thereby 
removing any known cause for complaint in regard to the 
use of the building:. 



58 

Quarantine notices have been posted on 85 houses in the 
town. Disinfection and fumigation has been thoroughly 
done in all cases that have been quarantined, and also in 
twenty-two houses where there had been a case or cases of 
consumption, — in all over 190 rooms. 

The general condition in the town is good and there is 
every prospect that under the present system it will con- 
tinue. The condition of the dumps in various parts of the 
town is always a source of complaint. 

It is respectfully suggested that as far as possible all com- 
plaints should be made in writing and signed, in order 
that the matter may be taken up properly and that 
suitable receptacles for swill be used to facilitate collections 
of the same. 

INSPECTION OF PLUMBING. 

There have been filed at this office 188 applications to do 
plumbing, of which 138 were for work in old buildings and 
50 for work in new buildings. In 126 buildings the prem- 
ises drain into the sewer, and in 56 into cesspools. 

The fixtures used in buildings are as follows : Water- 
closets, 226 : bathtubs, 92 ; wash bowls, 108 ; sinks, 198 ; 
wash trays, 54. 

The general condition of the plumbing work done is very 
good, and I wish to thank the plumbers for their courtesy 
and earnest endeavors to improve the general sanitary con- 
dition of the buildings in town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CALEB T. LOVELL, 

Health Officer and Inspector of Plumbing. 



SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD 
OF PARK COMMISSIONERS. 



Although the year 1898 closed leaving a feeling of dis- 
appointment as to what had not been and might not be 
done by the Metropolitan Park Commission in the taking of 
land for the purifying of the Neponset River, and for a 
boulevard near it, the delay and possible abandonment 
being, as was understood, due to the high prices put by 
some of the owners upon their properly, the last year of the 
century shows , on the most important item for the welfare 
of our town, viz. : the purification of the Neponset River, 
considerable progress towards what was, without any ques- 
tion the intention of our Legislature in. making the large 
appropriation of 181)8. 

Although it is within the power of our town officials to 
prevent the fouling of the stream by our people, any move- 
ment of this kind must be a radical one to accomplish this 
•even within our own limits ; and we cannot, through the 
ordinary channels, prevent the stream from being polluted 
outside of our town. Naturally, there is, and will be, 
hesitation in enforcing any provision which inconveniences 
and causes expense to our manufacturies and people until 
the sentiment of the town as a whole is in favor of such 
enforcement. Therefore, we believe that the takings which 
have been made the past year will meet with the approval 
of our citizens, and will undoubtedly result in making the 
Neponset a pleasure to those who live and work near it, 
instead of creating disgust for its present impure condition. 



60 

.We believe in the policy which was so well and plainly 
expressed by the Chairman of the Metropolitan Commission 
in his address September 22, 1898, when he said as to the 
taking of the river banks, that " industries are not to be 
interfered with. It does not mean that there is any spirit 
on the part of the Commonwealth to come here and wipe 
out industries that happen to be located along the river." 

The plans and descriptions of land taken have been filed 
during the current year in the following order : 

May 27, 1899. For a boulevard taking the river banks 
just west of Gienwood Avenue station on the Midland 
Division of the N. Y., N, H. & H. R. R. to near Paul's 
Bridge. Plan No. 189. 

October 2, 1899. From Paul's Bridge southwesterly to 
near the station of Green Lodge on the Providence Division 
of the same railroad, taking the Neponset River and adja- 
cent territory to a width which covers all the low, Avet 
meadow land. About 3000 feet in length of this taking is 
in Hyde Park and the balance in Canton and Dedham. 
Plan No. 187. 

October 21, 1899. Additional taking near Gordon 
Avenue, entrance to Stony Brook Reservation. 

December 28, 1899. Along the Neponset River, between 
Fairmonunt and Glover and Willcomb's, at Gienwood 
Avenue. Plan No. 200. 

January 4, 1900. From Fairmount east along the 
Neponset River in Hyde Park and Milton, to Mattapan. 
Plan No. 226. 

The following plans have been carefully compared with 
the descriptions, and after careful consideration have been 
assented to by this Board, 

Sept. 18, 1899. To the taking of land near Gordon 
Avenue. 



61 

Sept. 25, 1899. To the taking shown on plan No. 187. 

Dec. 27, 1899. To the taking shown on plan No. 226; 
also on plan 200. 

The takings so far as tiled, practically control the pollu- 
tion of the river from the Westwood town line to Fairmount 
Avenue, in Hyde Park, a distance of about three and one- 
half miles, and control the stream, on one side at least, 
from Fairmount Avenue to the northeast line of Hyde 
Park. 

Not only will the people, in the near future, have 
guaranteed to them for all time a clean, pure stream, a 
prospect that will delight all of enjoying, as of old, the 
pleasure of boating and fishing, but in addition, will have 
unobstructed paths along its border. The beautiful scenery 
through which they will lead, the hand of man will not be 
able to improve. ♦ 

During the year rive applications for the removal of shade 
trees have been made, and the legal notices have been 
posted, hearings held, and permission to remove them 
grauted as follows : 

March 23, 1899. To E. O. Taylor, to remove three 
shade trees in front of his land on Lincoln Street. 

April 22, 1899. To Willis G. Robinson, to remove 
three trees in front of No. 51 Lincoln Street. 

May 29, 1899. To Trustees of the Public Library, to 
remove a tree on Winthrop Street. 

Dec. 18, 1899. To the Selectmen, to remove two trees 
at the corner of West River Street and Fairview Avenue. 

Aug. 8, 1899. Declined to allow a tree to be removed 
on Dana Avenue. 

May 29, 1899. Voted to paint the flag pole on the park 
at Readville. 

There has been additional legislation as to shade trees y 
the past year, which is as follows : 



62 

ACTS 1899. CHAP. 330. 

An Act to Codify and Amend the Laws Relative to 
the Preservation ■ of Trees. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows : 

Section 1. Every towu shall, at its annual meeting for 
the election of town officers, elect a tree warden, who shall 
serve for one year, and until his successor is elected and 
qualified. He may appoint such number of deputy tree 
wardens as he deems expedient, aud may at any time remove 
them from office. He aud his deputies shall receive such 
compensation for their services as the town may determine, 
and in the dafault of such determination, as the selectmen 
may prescribe. He shall have the care and control of all 
public shade trees in the town, except those in public parks 
or open places under the jurisdiction of park commissioners ; 
and of these, also, he shall take the care and control if so 
requested in writing by the park commissioners. He shall 
expend all funds appropriated for the setting out and main- 
tenance of such trees. He may prescribe such regulations 
for the care and preservation of such trees, enforced by 
suitable fines and forfeitures, not exceeding twenty dollars 
in any one case, as he may deem just and expedient; and 
such regulations, when approved by the selectmen and 
posted in two or more public places in the town, shall have 
the force and effect of town by-laws. It shall be his duty 
to enforce all provisions of law for the preservation of 
such trees. 

Section 2. Towns may appropriate annually a sum of 
money, not exceeding in the aggregate fifty cents for each 
of its ratable polls in the preceding year, t;o be expended by 
the tree warden in planting shade trees in the public ways, 
or, if he deems it expedient, upon adjoining land, at a dis- 
tance not exceeding twenty feet from said public ways, for 
the purpose of shading or ornamenting the same": provided, 
however, that the written consent of the owner of such land 
shall first be obtained. All shade trees within the limits of 
any public way shall be deemed public shade trees. 

Section 3. Whoever, other than a tree warden or his 
deputy, desires the cutting or removal, in whole or in part, 
of any public shade tree, may apply to the tree warden, who 
shall give a public hearing upou the application at some 
suitable time and place, after duly posting notices of the 
hearing in two or more public places in the town and also 



63 

upon the said tree: provided, however, that the warden may, 
if he deems it expedient, grant permission for such cutting 
or removal without calling a hearing, if the tree in question 
is on a public way outside of the residential part of the 
town; the limits of such residential part to be determined 
by the selectmen. No tree within such residential part shall 
be cut by the tree warden, except to trim it, or removed by 
him without a hearing as aforesaid; but in all cases the 
decision of the tree warden shall be final. 

Section 4. Towns may annually raise and appropriate 
such sum of money as they may deem necessary, to be ex- 
pended under the direction of the tree warden in extermi- 
nating iusect pests within the limits of their public ways 
and places, and in the removal from said public ways and 
places of all trees and other plants upon which such pests 
naturally breed : provided, however, that where an owner or 
lessee of real estate shall, to the satisfaction of the tree 
warden, annually exterminate all insect pests upon the trees 
and other plants within the limits of any public way or 
place abutting on said real estate, such trees and plants 
shall be exempt from the provisions of this section. 

Section 5. Whoever affixes to any tree in a public way or 
place, a playbill, picture, announcement, notice, advertise- 
ment, or other thing, whether iD writing or otherwise, or 
cuts, paints or marks such tree, except for the purpose of 
protecting it, and under a written permit from the tree 
warden, shall be punished by a fine not exceeding fifty 
dollars for each offence. 

Section 6. Whoever wautonly injures, defaces, breaks, 
or destroys an ornamental or shade tree within the limits of 
any public way or place shall forfeit no'; less than five nor 
more than one hundred dollars, to be recovered by com- 
plaint, one half to the complainant and the other half to the 
use of the town. 

Section 7. Whoever negligently or carelessly suffers a 
horse or other beast driven by or for him, or a beast be- 
longing to him and lawfully in a public way or place, to 
break down, injure, or destroy a shade or ornamental tree 
within the limits of said public way or place, or whoever 
negligently or wilfully by any other means breaks down, in- 
jures, or destroys any such tree, shall be liable to the 
penalties prescribed in the foregoing section, and shall in 
addition be ln.ble for all damages caused thereby. 



64 

Section 8. It shall be the duty of the tree warden to 
enforce the provisions of the preceding seetions. 

Approved May 1, 1899. 

ACTS, 1899. — CBAP. 436. 
An Act Relative to the Protection of Shade Trees. 
Be it enacted, etc., as follows : 

Section 1. Section eight of chapter fifty-four of the 
Public Statutes is hereby amended by adding at the end 
thereof the following words : — " and shall forfeit not less 
than Ave nor more than one hundred dollars to be recovered 
by complaint; one naif to the complainant and the other 
half to the use of the municipality in which such injury is 
done," — so as to read as follows : — 

" Section 8. Whoever negligently or carelessly suffers a 
horse or other beast driven by or for him, or a beast 
belonging to him and lawfully on the highway, to break 
down, destroy, or injure a tree, not his own, standing for 
use or ornament on said highway, or negligently or wilfully 
by any other means breaks clown, destroys, or injures any 
such tree, shall be subject to an action for damages at the 
suit of the owner or tenant of the land in front of which 
the tree stands, and shall forfeit not less thau five nor more 
than one huudred dollars, to be recovered by complaint; 
one half to the complainant and the other half to the use of 
the municipality in which such injury is done." 

Section 2. This Act shall take effect upon its passage. 
Approved May 27, 1899. 

It appears from Section 1 of the Acts of 1899, Chapter 
330, that it is now obligatory on the town to elect a Tree 
Warden, and that the local Park Commissioners, as com- 
missioners, cannot act as tree wardens, and have control 
only of public shade trees in the public parks or open 
places under their jurisdiction. 

This legislation is very satisfactory to this Board, but we 
hope the one chosen will have due regard to the beauty as 
well as utility of our shade trees.

JOHN J. ENNEKING, Sec'ty.,

By comparing the figures relating to appropriations for 
the years 1898 and 1899, the high rate of taxation of the 
latter year may be accounted for. It will be seen that the 
increase in valuation was $317,270.00, and at the same 
time the tax levy for 1899 exceeded that of 1898 by 
$46,307.25, an increase of more than 25 per cent. Of that 
amount $24,700.00 was voted by our citizens in 1898 to be 
raised by taxation in 1899; the balance, $21,607.25, may 
be charged directly to State assessments, mainly on account 
of the so-called Abolition of Grade Crossings at Readville, 
and the very marked increase in the assessment on account 
of the Metropolitan Sewer. It may be noted that the Grade 
Crossing item in 1898 was $56.50, and in 1899, $8,873.14: 
in 1898 the Metropolitan Sewer item was $4,421.93, in 
1899, $13,345.32. What these assessments for the ensuing 
year may be, it is impossible to state ; but, probably, not 
less than the amounts called for last year. In addition to 
the above, the taxpayers of Hyde Park will be called upon 
to include in the annual tax levy of 1900, an assessment 
on account of the Metropolitan Park. The amount of this 
item cannot be determined at present, but it is safe to 
assume that the call will not be for less than $10,000. 

Respectfully submitted, 

THOMAS E. FAUNCE, 
GEORGE W. CHAPMAN, 
CHARLES F. MORRISON,

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE HYDE 
PARK PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



HISTORY. 

At a town meeting held in 1871, largely through the in- 
fluence of the late Theodore D. Weld, a Committee of nine 
was appointed a Library Committee to inaugurate a move- 
ment in favor of a Free Public Library for Hyde Park. 

They entered upon their work with great energy, and 
soon enlisted the support of the public- spirited citizens of 
the town, then in its infancy. Subscriptions were obtained, 
a Fair was held, a Course of Lectures, and several Enter- 
tainments were given includingone by the Public Schools ; as 
the result of their untiring efforts upwards of $6000 was raised 
as a Library Fund. The first meeting of this Committee 
was held in the library of Alanson Hawley who at that time 
presented them with over one hundred new and valuable vol- 
umes which may be regarded as the foundation of the Lib- 
rary. Although in failing health at the time, no one was 
more earnest or devoted to the cause, but he did not live to 
see the realization of his hopes. 

In their report presented at the annual town meeting in 
1872, they gave a detailed account of their labors and rec- 
ommended that the Board of Selectmen, the School Com- 
mittee, the Town Treasurer, and the Town Clerk, be ap- 
pointed a committee for the nomination of a Library Board. 
In consequence of this recommendation, the following were 
elected, the majority of* whom were members of the original 
committee : 

Theodore D. Weld, Rev. Isaac H. Gilbert, Rev. Perley 
B. Davis, Rev. E. A. Manning, Edward M. Lancaster, 



146 
Hobart M. Cable, Rev. W. J. Corcoran, Mrs. Mary H. 
Hunt, and E. S. Hathaway. Mrs. Hunt declined to serve, 
and C. W. W. Wellington was chosen in her place. Upon 
them devolved the task of creating a Library, of purchasing 
books, electing a Librarian, and finding a suitable room. • 

The Library was first opened in March, 1874, in the west- 
erly end of the second story of the brick block at the corner 
of West River street, and what was then called Hyde Park 
avenue, now known as Harvard avenue. In 1883 it was 
removed to the westerly end of the second story of the 
brick block nearly opposite its first quarters and adjoining 
the Episcopal church. These rooms which seemed ample 
when the}^ were secured were soon outgrown and the space 
required for books gradually encroached upon the Reading 
Room. 

After long and patient effort on the part of the Trustees, 
and others interested in the welfare of the Library, the town 
voted an appropriation of $25,000 in December, 1898, and 
instructed the Trustees to erect a building on the corner of 
Harvard avenue and Winthrop streets. Subsequently, be- 
fore the building had been begun, the town voted $tj,500 
more for the purchase of additional laud adjoining the 
original site, and still later $2,500 for furniture and fixtures. 
With this money and the Library Fund already in their 
hands, the Trustees erected the Library Building which is 
described later in this Report. This was first opened to the 
public use in September, 1899. 

The first Librarian was William E. Foster, then a recent 
graduate of Brown University, who has for many years past 
been widely known as the efficient head of the Public Lib- 
rary at Providence, R. I. 

Upon his resignation in 1876, after two years of service, 
the Library was temporarily in charge ot J. J. Reeves who 
was followed later in the same year by Mrs. H. A. B. 
Thompson who .remained in charge for a little over twenty 



147 
years. Daring her long service she saw the Library 
whose interests she had so much at heart, nearly treble its 
number of volumes and greatly increase its cir- 
culation. She was a wide reader of excellent taste and 
judgment who was able to render valuable assistance to 
the Trustees in the selection of books, and to give good 
counsel to such patrons of the Library as consulted her as 
to their choice of reading. 

She was followed in 1896 by Miss Elizabeth Ainsworth, 
a graduate of Mt. Holyoke, who had been for some years 
enofaofed in teaching. She has brought to her work o-reat 
energy and efficiency. Miss M. A. Hawley has been per- 
manently employed as Assistant Librarian since 1883, and 
bj T her uniform courtesy has Avon the regard and good-will 
of everyone who has had occasion to use the Library during 
all these years. 

On the opening of the new building in 1899, Miss Gert- 
rude L. Adams, a graduate of the High School was placed 
in charge of the Juvenile Room where she has displayed 
skill and tact. 

NEW LIBRARY BUILDING. 

As this is the first report ©f the Trustees since the com- 
pletion of the library building, it may not be out of place to 
give a b.ief description which may supplement the illustra- 
tions which accompany the report. 

The foundation is of hammered Deer Isle granite and the 
walls are of gray Roman brick, with terra-cotta trimmings. 
The inside finish is of oak, with the exception of that in the 
main reading room. 

The outside dimensions of the main buildiug are 43 x 81 
feet, with a stock room in the rear 20 x 47 feet. The base- 
ment, which is high, well lighted, and free from dampness, 
has, beside the boiler-room and toilet-room, three large 
rooms, one of which is used as a work-room, and the other 
two for storage purposes. 



148 

The first floor contains an entrance hall 28 feet in height 
with a mosaic floor, oak panelling with Tennessee marble 
base, and an oak staircase ; the delivery room, 20 x 40 feet ; 
the juvenile room, 28 x 30 feet; a librarian's room; toilet 
rooms, and the main reading room, 28 x 40 feet, and 28 
in height. This room is finished in the colonial style, hav- 
ing Corinthian pillars and entablature with ceiling beams. 
At one end is a large fireplace, with Sienna marble facings, 
and an oak mantel surmounted by an oak clock with a 
marble dial, generously presented by the Horticultural 
Society. The walls are surrounded by oak bookcases, five 
feet in height, containing reference books and magazines for 
use in the rooms. 

The second floor, besides the trustees' room, contains a 
large room, 28 x 40 feet and 18 feet high, which is used at 
present by the Historical Society. Whenever the increased 
demands of the library render it necessary, it can be used 
as an additional reading room. This room the trustees 
have called " Weld Hall,"' in memory of the late Theodore 
D. Weld. The associate of Phillips, Garrison, Whittier, 
and others of like high purpose, he was widely known in 
his earlier years as an eioquent and fearless iriend of the 
oppressed, while in his declining days, having taken up his 
residence among us, he endeared himself to his fellow- 
townsmen as a high-minded, public-spirited citizen, zealous 
in every good work. To his untiring efforts the library 
was greatly indebted in its infancy. 

The stack-room, which is detached from the main build- 
ing, from which it is separated by fireproof doors, is 
practically a fireproof structure. It contains iron book- 
stacks of the most approved design. They will contain 
32,0C0 volumes, and accommodations for 16,000 more can 
easily be added whenever occasion demands. 

The style of architecture is Grecian Ionic, and great care

has been taken to have all the proportions and details 
conform to the requirements of the style adopted. 

The lot on which the building stands is slightly elevated 
above the surrounding streets, and is bounded 200 feet by 
Harvard Avenue, 100 feet by Winthrop Street, and 100 
feet by Everett Street. It is proposed to beautify this in 
the spring by setting out trees and shrubs. 

The trustees desire to put on record their high apprecia- 
tion of the skill and fidelity of tho architects, Messrs. 
Clark & Russell, and of the fair dealing of the contractor, 
Mr. George Howard, who has spared no labor or expense 
in fulfilling the terms of his agreement in a liberal spirit. 

Besides the principal contract, other contracts have been 
made as follows : 

Snead & Co., Iron Works, bookstacks ; Magee Furnace 
Co., represented by Stillman E. Newell, of Hyde Park, 
heating and ventilating apparatus ; The Library Bureau, 
tables and card catalogue cases; Paine Furniture Co., 
through George S. Cabot, of Hyde Park, chairs ; R. Hol- 
lings & Co., lighting fixtures; Hyde Park Granite Co., 
curbing. 

The cost has been as follows : 

Building, including architect's fee, heating and 

ventilating §26,000 00 

Land 12,500 00 

Bookstacks, furnishing, grading, etc 6,772 04 



to, 272 04 



The trustees are happy to be able to say that the building 
has been completed within the amount available, and that 
there will be a small balance on hand after paying all out- 
standing bills. 

We add the following brief extract from a public address 
delivered by one of the clergymen of the town. 



150 

" Our new Public Library Building is a structure to be proud of as 
we look at its dignified outward proportions; while within, it a 
simplicity, its loftiness, and its beauty exert upon all who enter, an 
educational power apart from the books which are treasured within 
its walls. Our citizens ought never to regret its exceedingly moder- 
ate cost, for it is destined to be an investment which will pay back a 
thousand fold." 

The notable o-ifts which have been received durino- the 
erection of the building have been one thousand dollars 
from Mr. Henry S. Grew, a clock from the Horticultural 
Society, and one hundred dollars from Mrs. Hamilton A. 
Hill, in honor of her late husband, who was for a time one 
of the trustees. This sum has by her request been expended 
for reference books, which have been placed in the reading 
room. 

The books and magazines especially adapted to younger 
readers have been arranged on the shelves around the 
juvenile room, where the children have free access to them 
under the supervision of an attendant, who is always 
present to aid them in their selection, and to charge the 
books desired for home use. The children in this way 
become to some extent familiar with a much larger number 
of books than those which they actually read. This privi- 
lege has, with few exceptions, been used in a most orderly 
manner, and the experiment appears to be a decided 
success. 

The classified card catalogue has been completed, each 
book being entered under its title, under the author's name, 
and under the subject, with sufficient cross references to 
make its contents easily accessible to the reader. In 
addition to the catalogue containing cards for all the books 
in the library, there is also in the delivery room a case 
containing a catalogue of all the fiction by itself, and 
another in the juvenile room containing a catalogue of all 
the books in that room. 

Whenever a new book is added to the library, it is class- 



151 
ified, and its appropriate cards are at once added, so that 
the catalogue is always complete to date, a thing impossible 
under any other system. 

Lists of new books are published from time to time in 
the local papers, and it is intended to print occasional 
Finding Lists, under suitable headings, for home use. 

A card catalogue of the chief subjects treated in the 
magazines is now in preparation. 

A bookcase placed near the delivery desk contains the 
more important new books as they are added to the library, 
so that the reader may have an opportunity to decide from 
a brief inspection of the book itself whether he wishes to 
carry it home to read ; a decision which it is often difficult 
to reach from the title alone. 

An average circulation of 4,847 per month for the first 
three months after the opening of the new building as 
compared with an average of 3,132 for the corresponding 
months of the previous year, an increase of over 50 per 
cent., with a like increase in the number of books used in 
the reading room, shows that the new facilities are 
appreciated by the patrons of the library. 

In October, Mr. William H. Alles, who had rendered 
efficient service as a member of the building committee and 
chairman of the board, having removed from town, was 
obliged to resign his position, much to the regret of his 
associates. The vacancy on the board was filled by the 
unanimous election of Charles G. Chick, Esq. , whose long 
service on the school committee gives promise of great 
usefulness in helping to strengthen the bond which connects 
the public schools and the public library. 

In closing, the trustees wish to express their appreciation 
of the generous financial support given them by the town, 
and to ask for the earnest co-operation of parents and 
teachers in making the library a still more potent factor for 
moral and intellectual good in our town life. The library 



152 

may be a source of moral weakness and mental dissipation 
instead of moral strength and mental vigor. It is the duty 
of the library officials to see to it that none but good books 
are on its shelves, but they cannot decide iu what order ©r 
in what proportion these shall be read. A host in enter- 
taining his guests may take care that no injurious food is 
placed before them, but he cannot prevent their neglecting 
the more substantial and nutritious viands and eating only 
that which was never intended to form the body of the 
meal. Delicacies which, taken at the proper time aud in 
the proper proportions, would add a zest to the appetite for 
more nourishing food will, if used to excess, destroy this 
healthy appetite and produce disease. 

This comparison holds good of the library. The trustees 
can see that nothing is furnished which is not suitable to 
read, but it is for the teachers to inculcate such a love of 
substantial books that the young shall seek them in prefer- 
ence to those of a lighter character ; and it is for the parents 
both to foster this love of good books, and by a careful 
supervision of their children's reading, to be sure that they 
are not unduly indulging in books which, though not harm- 
ful in themselves, should be used chiefly as a relaxation 
from more severe mental effort. 

We desire also to ask the parents to impress it upon the 
young people that the reading room is a place for quiet 
study and not for social recreation, and to suggest an 
03casional call at the library on their part, that they may 
see how closely this object is adhered to. It is only by 
such earnest co-operation on the part of all, that the library 
can fulfil its highest mission. 

For the Trustees, 

HEXRY. B. MINER, 

Chairman.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Trustees : 

The following is a report of the Hyde Park Public Libra- 
ry for 1899 ; 

The Library has been open for the delivery of books 251 
days, having been closed from July 10 to September 12 — 
54 library days — during the removal and arranging of the 
books in their new quarters. The Browne system of charg- 
ing, which replaced the card system in September, is prov- 
ing very satisfactory. 

A re-registration of borrowers began at the reopening of 
the library. The number now registered in the adult de- 
partment is 1354 ; number of new borrowers not previous- 
ly registered is 598. The age limit of registration in the 
children's department is twelve years. The number over 
twelve years of age registered in that department is 379, 
making a total registration of 1733. The number of persons 
in the same family entitled to take books has been increased 
to four. The privilege of taking two books at a time has 
been welcomed by many of our readers.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE'S REPORT. 



Citizens of Hyde Park : 

During the past year you have manifested a marked 
iuterest in school affairs, apparently keeping advised of 
changes which we have been instrumental in making. This 
is certainly commendable, and cannot but result in substan- 
tial benefit to the cause of education in our town. We 
respond by asking you to continue and increase your 
interest with us in securing the best attainable results. 
We invite the closest scrutiny of our official action, and 
shall consider it a signal favor to receive from you any 
suggestion for the future or any criticism of the past. This 
invitation includes in its scope, superintendent, teachers, 
and scholars, and we shall hope that it will be responded to 
without reserve, and without apprehension of anyone to- 
ward personal results following. 

We are now in the second year of the superintendence of 
our schools, and Mr. F. O. Draper continues in charge, we 
believe, to very general acceptance. He is having our 
cordial support, and we fully believe that the outcome of 
his efforts has been to elevate the standing of the schools. 
We take the full responsibility of our own action, and if 
any course which we may adopt should prove an undesire- 
able course, the fault will be ours, and should in no way 
subject him to criticism any farther than it applies to his 
method of administration. We believe the schools are 
moving on in the right way and we shall take no backward 
step unless the town, which is the legitimate authority, 
instructs us to take it. 



1^2 

The resignation of Mr. Angleton, in the High School, 
and of Mr. Cross, in the Fairmount, created vacancies 
which have been satisfactorily filled. The present con- 
dition of the High School is excellent; the new principal, 
Mr. M. S. Getchell, has shown eminent fitness, and seems 
fully equipped for his trying and exacting position. He 
has succeeded in bringing to himself the united support of 
the people, which fact in itself is a tremendous guarantee of 
right results. Mr. Arthur W. Armstrong has been trans- 
ferred from the Damon to the Fairmount School, and he has 
fully demonstrated that an efficient teacher does not suffer 
in reputation, nor in his accredited ability to teach, by a 
change of situation. Mr. George L. Farley is Mr. Arm- 
strong's successor at the Damon, and is bringing to his 
work intelligent and active force. We predict for him a 
future of exceptional usefulness. 

The supervision of drawing is in charge of Miss Anna M. 
Kimball, who is doing her work to general acceptance. 
This supervision by a specialist is new to our schools, and 
we feel that we have been particularly fortunate in securing 
so efficient a teacher as Miss Kimball to inaugurate the 
work. 

In referring to teachers, we have laid especial stress upon 
the capabilities of those who are new to us, but this result 
must not, even by inference, reflect upon the true and tried 
teachers and specialists who have been a longer time with 
us. We feel confident that our teachers compare more 
than favorably with those of other towns, and in proof of 
this, note how frequently even our cities lay us under 
contribution, forcing us to surrender them to more promi- 
nent positions and higher salaries. This should move us to 
give larger compensation to those teachers who are qualified 
to fill advanced positions. The} r go from us, not because 
they desire to go, but because their true value receives 
fuller recognition elsewhere. 



163 

In closing our brief report, we wish to renew our request 
for a new high school building ; and to avoid repetition, we 
invite a re-perusal of last year's report. We ask that the 
town's people give very careful attention to their action 
regarding schools, the coming season. We are just now 
where a thoughtless or reactionary movement might work 
incalculable harm ; for, under our changed system of super- 
intendence, many things are in a transitory state and have 
not as yet shown the full and satisfactory results which we 
are sure will come after a fuller test. A great victory will 
be won if we can keep the schools out ot political compli- 
cations, for they always suffer when they become involved 
in partizan and factional struggles. Some of our great 
cities are just now demonstrating the truthfulness of the 
preceding statement. When the machine politician is 
concerned, nothing escapes which may conflict with his 
interests. 

We thank the town for the generous support which they 
have given to the schools in the past, and we confidently 
believe that the future will witness a continuance of the 
same. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. I. HUMPHREY, 

Chairman. 
For the Committee.

STATISTICS. 

The first census under the school attendance law of 1898 
was taken in September, 1899. The records differ in form 
somewhat from those formerly made. The compulsory age 
limits are now from seven to fourteen, and illiterate minors 
over fourteen years of age must attend the evening school 
while its sessions continue. Children of fourteen and fifteen 
years cannot work in any factory, workshop, or mercantile 
establishment without an age and schooling certificate. 

Your attention is invited to a comparison of two of the 
items of this year's census with the corresponding figures 
for last year. At the previous census the number of pupils 



166 

in local private schools was 23 ; this year the number is 5. 
The number attending schools out of town was 92 last year ; 
this year the number is 24. These figures are significant 
and encouraging. 

GRADING AND PROMOTION. 

The subjects of grading and promotion were given careful 
consideration early in the year. With the consent of the 
Committee, certain changes have been made which in my 
opinion are of great importance and, on the whole, of very 
great value. Heretofore the promotion of pupils from 
grade to grade and from the grammar schools to the high 
school has been regulated by the adoption of a standard per 
cent, mark as a test of qualification, the results of stated 
examinations by the Committee, in the highest grammar 
grade, and by the principals, in the lower grades, being 
averaged with daily marks. 

By the present method, daily work is recorded as " E," 
"G," " F," " U," or " P," and the examinations, which are 
given by the teachers, are similarly marked and recorded. 
At the end of the year, pupils whose work for the year does 
not fall below Fair in any subject are entitled to promotion. 
Pupils whose work is not satisfactory in all subjects may be 
promoted on trial if the general character of their work, in- 
cluding attendance, deportment and effort, warrants condi- 
tional promotion. Pupils promoted to the high school on 
trial are entitled to a grammar school diploma at the close 
of one year of satisfactory work in that school duly certified 
by the principal. 

I believe that I am fully informed as to the best arguments 
for the percentage system of marking, and for the employ- 
ment of examinations given by some-one other than the 
teacher as a test for promotion. I do not wish to be under- 
stood as decrying or undervaluing such arguments. 1 am, 



167 

however, positively convinced by my own experience as a 
teacher and as superintendent, as well as by the testimony 
of others, that the sj^stem now employed is productive of 
better results. It is true that we must pre suppose ability 
and integrity on the part of the teachers, to ensure the pro- 
motion of such pupils only as are properly qualified. But 
should a school be so unfortunate as to be without a well- 
qualified and honest teacher, the proper remedy would 
seem to be to improve the teaching rather than to inflict a 
penalty upon the pupils by forcing them to remain in such 
a school a second year. Yet this latter effect is the outcome 
of the examination for promotion when successfully applied. 
In actual practice these examinations do not fully accom- 
plish this end, for reasons well known to examiners. 

It is, however, chiefly because of their effect upon that 
great majority of schools whose teachers are mentally and 
morally competent that examinations for promotion have 
been discontinued. As long as these, tests stand as the 
measure of the teacher's success, so long will the teacher's 
efforts be directed toward preparation for examination. 
The " confessions" of some of the most successful teachers 
are interesting and instructive. The mind of the teacher 
should not be occupied by such thoughts as " What ques- 
tions is most likely to ask?" and "What is the 

easiest and quickest way of storing my children's minds 
with answers that can be written on demand?" A more 
fruitful line of questioning is, " What work will best de- 
velop "my pupils' minds?" " How can I lead them to do 
that work most thoroughly and effectively?" 

The teachers' examinations, which are sent to the Super- 
intendent's office and are open to inspection by the com- 
mittee, are valuable aids in determining the quality of the 
work done in the several schools, in this respect fully 
taking the place of the examination for promotion. 



168 



SYSTEMATIC TEACHING. 



The quality of much of the teaching iu our schools is 
excellent. It is, nevertheless, imperative that in this 
respect our schools should constantly advance. It is ex- 
tremely desirable' that the teaching should become more 
systematic without becoming in any degree mechanical. 
There is no ready-made " method " that can be introduced 
with any advantage. Yet the study of method and the 
application of a rational method to the teacher's daily work 
is indispensable. But there is a limit to the strength and 
energy of the teacher which must not be lost sight of. The 
necessary daily work of the school is no light burden. 
Even a change of text books adds enormously to the 
inevitable burden upon every faithful teacher ; and the 
addition of a new subject involves a still greater strain. In 
view of the facts that the present requirements in vocal 
music have been in effect little more than two years, that 
the grammar grades have new geographies, and that draw- 
ing directed by a special supervisor is new to all grades, it 
has seemed best to make other new requirements from the 
teachers in the elementary schools as light as is consistent 
with good work. Before the end of the current school 
year, however, I hope to see a definite gain in thoughtful 
and systematic teaching. A definite beginning has 
already been made. The work in method has been outlined 
and a good number of our teachers are making intelligent 
efforts towards improvement. 

CHANGES IN ORGANIZATION. 

During the year there have been important changes in 

organization. In last year's school report, I recommended 

a division of the lowest primary class into a first grade 

proper and a sub-primary class ; the latter to include all 



169 

pupils too young or too immature to complete the work of 
the first grade in one year. This recommendation has been 
adopted, and the sub-primary classes thus formed have 
made an excellent beginning. Their work consists of such 
first-grade studies and occupations as are suited to their 
development, together with a considerable amount of kin- 
dergarten work. From previous experience with such 
schools I am assured that they will prove much better 
adapted to the needs of the youngest children than the first 
grade rooms, and that the relief afforded the latter by the 
division will greatly increase their efficiency. 

The other change in organization relates to the grammar 
schools. By recent vote of the committee, the masters of 
the grammar schools have sole charge of the eighth grades, 
teaching all subjects in these grades without assistants. 
They are thus unable to devote any considerable amount of 
time during school hours to their administrative duties as 
principals, and are unable to supervise the work of the 
lower rooms. This change increases the amount of work 
required of the masters, and places practically the entire 
responsibility for the character of the teaching in each room 
upon its teacher and the superintendent of schools. Except 
in the matter of the direction and supervision of instruction 
in the lower grades, the powers and duties of the masters 
are not altered. 

It is too early to pass final judgment upon the general 
effect of the change. There has been some apprehension as 
to the results of leaving the grade teachers without the 
master's daily supervision. While there is a greater de- 
mand in several ways upon the qualifications of the teachers 
for their positions, I am glad to be able to report no 
apparent difference in the quality of the work or of the 
discipline as a result of throwing the teachers much more 
fully upon their own resources. 



170 

COURSE OF STUDY. 

An entirely new course of study was adopted for the 
High school at the beginning of the current school year. 
This course is as broad as the present number of instructors 
and the equipment of the school allow, and is thoroughly 
modern in spirit. The form of parallel courses is continued, 
but the relations of subjects are such that the curriculum 
might be arranged in the form of a single course with 
liberal choice of electives. 

In the elementary schools the work in geography has 
been radically changed by the introduction of new text 
books and the adoption of Frye's " Child and Nature " as 
the authorized course of stud}^. Of this admirable work, 
the author of our text books says : "It leaves nothing to be 
desired in the way of a course of study." 

In arithmetic, Dr. Prince's course of study, as outlined 
in his series of text books and manual, has been adopted, 
and is being given a trial in our schools. This is practically 
the new State course of s&tudy in arithmetic. 

The periods of discovery and colonization in American 
history have been assigned to the sixth grade for oral 
teaching and for reading and discussion. I recommend the 
purchase of suitable books for the history work in this 
grade. 

In grammar and language there has been no change in 
text books or in the outlines of work. Greater stress is 
laid upon written language than formerly, daily work of 
this character being required in all grades. 

VOCAL MUSIC. 

The rapid development of the work in this department, 
noted in last year's report, has continued. Supervisor and 
teachers have worked with commendable zeal, and the 
results are already apparent. Musical instruction is an 



171 
essential element in modern education, and as it exists in 
our schools to-day it is an unquestioned means of intellect- 
ual development. An especially meritorious feature is the 
individual work which is unusually successful. 
The report of the Supervisor follows : 



REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC. 
Mr. Frank O. Draper, Supt. of Schools. 

Dear Sir : — Again it is my privilege to report on the 
progress of music in our public schools. Without question 
this department has advanced its standard daring the past 
year. The improvement in the quality of tone, as evidenced 
by all classes, first attracts attention. 

The voice of each child from the first grade up to the 
eighth grade inclusive, has been tested. A complete record 
of this test is in the care of the teachers in the four upper 
grades. This record includes the name, age, voice, range 
of voice and an estimate on each pupil's ability to sing tune- 
fully. This record, or voice chart, is open to public inspec- 
tion. A record somewhat similar is made and kept by the 
teachers in the primary grades likewise open to public in- 
spection. The teacher thus becomes acquainted with the 
musical ability of each child. 

As it is our aim to cultivate and develop self-reliance in 
this department, we have required individual singing by at 
least two pupils each day in all grades below the seventh. 
This departure has been accomplished with excellent re- 
sults. Confidence replaces timidity and the pupils take 
considerable pride and enjoyment singing their studies as 
solos, duets, and trios, striving to merit approbation. 

Musical composition has also received some attention 
during the past year. One period once in two weeks is set 
apart for composing melodies four and eight measures in 
length. While this subject is in its infancy it promises 



172 

well for the future. It teaches the pupils to think sounds 
and intervals in succession and guides them to an under- 
standing of the rules of musical notation. 

A new feature introduced at the beginning of the school 
year was the metronome, which is conscientiously used by 
all the teachers. The metronome demonstrates to the pupil 
very clearly the difference in tempo and gives a comprehen- 
sive understanding of the principal movements in music — 
allegro, allegretto, moderato and andante. 

The most difficult problem that confronts a supervisor of 
music is universally acknowledged to be found at the high 
school. In Hyde Park conditions have changed. It is im- 
possible to refer to the music at our high school without 
speaking of the splendid support and inspiration received 
from Mr. Getchell, the Principal. 

The discipline during the music period is all that could 
be desired, and today music at the high school is a " live" 
subject. It is a pleasure to speak of the willing and earnest 
efforts of the teachers, and I wish especially to thank the 
committee for their continued interest and generous support 
of the music, and to the Superintendent I am sincerely 
grateful for the many helps rendered in the interest of the 
department of music. 

Respectfully, 

B. HAROLD HAMBLIN, 

Supervisor of Music. 
Hyde Park, Jan. 25, 1900. 



DRAWING. 



The importance of special supervision in drawing was 
strongly urged in my last report. By the appointment as 
supervisor of Miss Anna M. Kimball, a graduate of the 
Boston Normal Art School and a successful teacher o£ 
drawing, this subject has been given the place it deserves 



173 

in our schools. While manual training should not end here 
it is now possible to give the motor and executive faculties 
of every pupil some systematic and effective exercise. Miss 
Kimball has fully proven her fitness for her position. Her 
work is in every respect commendable and full of promise. 
Following is the report of the Supervisor of Drawing : 



REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF DRAWING. 
Mr. Franr O. Draper, Supt. of Schools. 

Dear Sir: — The work in drawing under supervision, 
commenced in September, has been of necessity largely ex- 
perimental. The effect of good teaching in former years is 
seen in individual cases, but the conditions under which 
drawing has been taught have made unity of plan and pur- 
pose practically impossible. Here, as in other places, great 
efficiency is shown by individual teachers, but others ac- 
knowledge their need of special help and instruction. 

The course used is one approved by high authority and 
worked experimentally with excellent results in other towns 
and cities. Besides the work in free-hand drawing it in- 
cludes elementary work in "manual training,", spoken of in 
the report on drawing of last year as "that important phase 
of modern education," neglect of which is "fatal to the 
great aim of the public schools — symmetrical development 
of the powers of the child." 

The systematic study of reproductions from the masters 
has been carried on with excellent results, showing the re- 
fining influences which beautiful pictures exert, especially 
upon children. 

A beginning has been made in the High school by intro- 
ducing a simple course in industrial drawing into the cur- 
riculum of the freshman year, although not compulsory. 

This year the class consists of twelve boys, who are in- 
structed by one of the High school teachers. The interest 



174 

seems good, and it is hoped that this will lead to the intro- 
duction of other courses. 

It is impossible at this early date to estimate the progress 
made, but enthusiasm and interest, two essentials of this 
branch ot work, are sure to bring progress and excellent 
results. 

I have been supported by the School Committee and 
Superintendent of Schools in a very gratifying way. Com- 
ing as a stranger to a new position, I wish to express my 
appreciation of the kind and sympathetic reception and co- 
operation of the teachers, and the respectful and willing 
spirit manifested by the pupils. 

In closing let me urge the value of intelligent interest of 
parents who, I believe, simply need to know the value of 
this subject and what it has accomplished elsewhere to give 
it their most hearty support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANNA M. KIMBALL, 

Supervisor. 
Walnut Hill, Mass., Jan. 27, 1900. 



HIGH SCHOOL. 

Upon the resignation of the Principal of the High school 
at the close of the school year, Mr. Merle S. Getchell, a 
master in the Sornerville English High School, was ap- 
pointed to till the vacancy. 

Mr. Getchell's record in Sornerville and as Principal of 
the High school department of the New Hampshire State 
Normal School was one of unusual ability and success, and 
was a guarantee of ample qualifications for his new position. 
Since his appointment he has further demonstrated his 
fitness by hi* wise administration of the school, and by the 
strength of his class-room work. It would be difficult to 



175 

over-estimate the value of his services as teacher and prin- 
cipal. A detailed account of the work of the school under 
his charge is given in the following report. 

REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL MASTER. 
Mr. Frank O. Draper, Supt. of School* : 

Dear Sir, — In accordance with your request, I submit 
herewith the annual report of the High School for the year 
1899. 

The enrollment ou December 22, was 238. The mem- 
bership was 230. The membership by classes was as 
follows : 

I. year, (entering class), 107 

II. year, 58 

III. year, 31 

IV. year, 26 
Postgraduates, 5 

Total, $30 

Judging from the last term's record in regularity of 
attendance, I can see no reason for any great loss in num- 
bers during the coming vear, but rather for a marked 
increase. Among such a large number, much absence on 
account of sickness and other imperative causes is quite 
necessary, but there is little excuse for tardiness and 
dismissal. While they do not appear in figures represent- 
ing average attendance, they are as injurious to the best 
interests of the school and pupil as absence ; particularly 
dismissal. Requests are constantly presented for the dis- 
missal of a pupil to go in town by a certain train or to keep 
an appointment with a dentist. While we uniformly accede 
to the request, it is with some regret, believing that the 
parent does not perceive that the loss of that time in school, 
even if there were no recitations for that particular pupil, 
will affect the work of the pupil for some time to come. 



176 
Thus, while the numbers and average attendance are good, 
they may be made much better in fact and result by a 
determined attitude on this question by those having pupils 
in school. 

During the year there have been two changes in the 
teaching force. In April, Miss Bessie M. Hooker, of 
Amherst, Mass.. was elected to succeed Miss Edith R. 
Nickels; and iu June, on the resignation of Mr. Angleton, 
a new principal was chosen. It gives me great pleasure to 
speak of the willingness and earnestness with which the 
teachers have taken up the work of the year. The school 
day of five hours is divided into six periods of about forty- 
five minutes each, exclusive of recesses. Oi.t of the thirty 
periods a week, the teachers are teaching twenty-six to 
twenty-eight. This gives very little time for the correcting 
of exercises or for consultation with pupils. 

In response to a general demand for a new course of 
study, one was prepared during the summer, and adopted 
on trial for the year. It was printed and forwarded to all 
the pupils and those interested in school matters before the 
opening of the term. English and History were emphasized 
for the first year. Physical Geography was placed in the 
first year of the English course, and Zoology in the second 
year of the Classical and Latin-scientific courses. French 
or German was offered in the second year of the English 
course, thus affording an opportunity for three years of 
continuous study in one of the two subjects. Spanish was 
offered as an elective in the third year as an inducement to 
those taking the Commercial course to continue their work 
for at least another year. Drawing was made an elective 
for the first year. There are two small classes in this 
subject. It is to be hoped that a way may be seen in the 
near future to open this course to all of the classes. The 
departure of the whole course was in the introduction of 
the elective system. It has been received with universal 



177 
satisfaction. In our small High schools where there are 
two classes of pupils, those intending to go no farther than 
the High school and those preparing for college, it is some- 
times very difficult to arrange the programme. The for- 
mer, with the advice of parents and teachers, should have 
every opportunity to select their studies. The latter, un- 
fortunately, have little if any choice. The necessary work 
has been mapped out for them by the higher institutions. 
Alter they have entered the High school, and have signified 
what institution they desire to enter, the work for the 
remaining years must be assigned by the master. The zeal 
and interest of the pupils shows that the course is well 
adapted to the school. With a few changes in details, I can 
see no reason why it should not be adopted as a permanent 
course. 

The changes in the course of study necessitated many 
changes in text books. One of our prominent educators 
says: "While frequent changes in text books are to be 
deprecated, it must be borne in mind that educational 
progress has been as marked in the preparation of text 
books as in other directions, and that it is well to take 
advantage of circumstances to replace poor by better." I 
believe that this has been done. There are, however, 
several places where the work would be much strengthened 
by the introduction of a good text book. It is the custom 
in many places to have a large number of equally good 
books on each subject on the adopted list. This does not 
cost anything and is oftentimes of great advantage. Two 
books of nearly equal merit are often tested by using one 
book in one division, and the other in a second division ot 
the same class. The books are loaned to the pupils over 
their signatures, and are inspected regularly. 

It is almost impossible to do the required work of to-day 
in a proper manner without library facilities. Some time 
ago a library was started in the High school, but the few 



178 
books were almost inaccessible to the pupils. Recognizing 
the demands which laboratory and library methods would 
make on our resources, we have attempted to meet these 
demands as far as possible by furnishing one corner of 
the large room with a table and books procured from the 
Public Library. The Trustees of the Public Library kindly 
loaned one of the tables from their old rooms, and also 
granted us the privilege of obtaining as many books at one 
time as we required, and keeping them as long as they were 
needed. The privilege thus extended to the school is fully 
appreciated by pupils and teachers. We are not able, how- 
ever, to accommodate all who desire to take advantage of 
these opportunities, and better facilities in the way of 
tables, books, and shelves, should be provided. 

With the demand for extended work in the library, 
comes that for more work in the laboratory. As .we noticed 
in our course of study, science work has been added to that 
which existed before, so that now there are courses in 
Physical Geography, Zoology, Botany, Physics, Chemistry, 
Geology, and Astronomy. All the work must be done in 
one laboratory — the chemical. While we are being fur- 
nished with necessary supplies to carry on this work, it is 
not economical, in the truest sense of the term, to allow 
such a condition to exist very long. The room is quite 
well fitted for classes in chemistry, but there is no oppor- 
tunity for the teaching of the other branches. 

I noticed in the report for last year that the Battalion was 
reorganized at that time. Work was begun promptly with 
the opening of the autumn term, and has since been steadil}' 
pursued. Uniforms have been procured by the larger 
number, and the Battalion may be said to be uniformed. 
As long as the weather permitted, company and battalion 
drills were carried on out of doors. Work is now being 
done preparatory for the Junior Prize Drill, to be given in 
February. 



179 

Much is said for and against athletics in the schools, but 
it seems necessary to recognize such sports as baseball, 
football, and polo in a school of any size, although a very 
small proportion of those interested actually take part in 
the games. This is no place for argument, but those in 
touch with school work will quickly recognize the truth of 
the above statement. The experience of schools is, that 
when properly managed, it does not detract from school 
duties, but on the whole quickens. It gives me pleasure to 
report that steps are being taken to form an organization 
which shall control all athletic interests, and be responsible 
to the school in a businesslike way for receipts, expendi- 
tures, etc. The young man who is trained to meet a rival 
in the proper spirit, and to be responsible for monies en- 
trusted to him, must be better fitted for the responsibilities 
of life. 

One of the questions which appeared for solution at the 
beginning of the year was physical training for the young 
ladies. The young men had two periods a week for drill, 
while the young ladies took the time for study. After 
careful consideration, Miss Claire DeLano, of Montclaire, 
New Jersey, a graduate of Emerson College of Oratory, 
was invited to take charge of the work. From the first 
time that Miss DeLano met the classes there was no ques- 
tion as to the result of the work. Her own enthusiasm 
with the ready response of the young ladies insured success. 

Such are some of the features of our work. The year as 
a whole has been most successful. With pupils, parents, 
teachers, and school officials working in harmony, the end 
sought will soon be attained. 

In closing, I desire to thank committee, parents, pupils, 
teachers, and you, Sir, for the heart}' support which I, 
during my short period of service, have received. 
Respectfully submitted, 

M. S. GETCHELL, Master. 



180 
CHANGES IN GRAMMAR PRINCIPALS. 

Mr. Edward YV. Cross, who had served the town faith- 
fully as Grammar School Principal for a quarter- century, 
retired from his position as Master of the Fairmount School 
at the close of the school year. The vacancy thus created 
was one of great importance, and by no means easy to fil 
adequately. Fortunately, Mr. Arthur W. Armstrong, 
Master of the Damon School, accepted the position with its 
added responsibilities. Mr. Armstrong brings to his new 
position unusual native abilities enriched by liberal educa- 
tion and successful experience in teaching. The school is 
sure to prosper under his charge. 

The Damon principalship has also been happily filled by 
the appointment of Mr. George L. Farley, a graduate of 
Dartmouth College with one year of resident post-graduate 
work. Mr. Farley's previous experience had been gained 
in high school teaching. He resigned his position as 
teacher of science in the Hanover High School to accept the 
principalship of the Damon School. He is doing excellent 
work, and has won the regard of his pupils and of the 
patrons of the school. 



EVENING SCHOOLS. 
Your attention is requested to the following interesting 
account of the work in the three departments of these 
valuable schools : 



EVENING SCHOOL PRINCIPAL'S REPORT. 

F. O. Draper, Esq., Supt. of Schools, 

Dear Sir : — Herewith I submit a report of the Evening 
Schools from the 31st of January. 1899, to the 31st of Jan- 
uary, 1900. 

The present term opened on the evening of October 30, 
1899, with five teachers in attendance. October 30 and 31 



181 

were taken for the registration of students. The regular 
work of the school commenced on the evening of November 
30, with a large attendance in all departments. 

EXGLISH DEPARTMENT. 

This department has been in charge of three teachers. 
One for the advanced work and two for the elementary work. 
There was a very good attendance in both classes until 
after December 1, 1899. About that time the numbers fell 
off and in consequencethe teaching force was reduced to two 
teachers. In the month of January of this year the numbers 
dec-reused so that it was thought advisable to continue with 
but one teacher. Elementary and advanced classes are 
now in one room. 

Registration from January 31, 1899, to March 30, 1899:

Present attendance, 13 

No. of sessions in the year, 81 

BUSINESS DEPARTMENT. 
This department has a course covering a period of two 
years and it is similar to the High school course. The reg- 
istration this year has been in excess of that of any other 
year. The indications are that there will be at least six 
students to receive the diploma of this department for their 
work in Stenography. There will be also an equal number 
entitled to certificates for their work in Bookkeeping. 

Registration from January 31, 1899, to Mar-h 30, 1899:

DRAUGHTING DEPARTMENT. 

In this department the course of study has been arranged 
to cover a period of four years, and the students are in 
classes. During the season 1898-1899 all students were in 
one class, the first year. The work covered a good portion 
of the elements of machine construction. On the 30th of 
March, 1899, there was an exhibition of the best drawings 
of the students. A number of the drawings represented 
home work. Upwards of sixty drawings were exhibited. 

The department this season is in charge of Joseph C. 
Riley, an instructor in the Institute of Technology. Mr. 
Riley has taken up the work where it was left by the Prin- 
cipal of the school last year and it is being carried on as 
originally intended. 

The classes and their work are given herewith. 

First year class — those students who had not had mechan- 
ical drawing until this year. 

The students have had seven plates on simple geometrical 
drawing, and two practice sheets of lettering. Seven 
plates of working drawings of wooden objects, that is, a 
panelled fence post, a blind mortise joint, etc. A tracing, 
on cloth, of a pulley wheel. At this point the class was 
divided into mechanical and architectural sections. The 
mechanical section is at present making working drawings 
of simple machine parts. They work from sketches. The 
architectural section is working from sketches on the plans 



183 

of a small cottage house. In this section the study of the 
Orders of Classic Architecture is taken up. 

Second year class — four students who have had work of 
this kind before entering the class. Students in the mechan- 
ical section have made three sheets of details of a small 
steam valve, working from the object and making their 
own measurements. At the present time they are working 
on a cam design. In the architectural section the work at 
present is on the plans and elevations of a frame house. 

All students of the second year class have made four 
plates each on projection ; three of the students in this class 
have had work in the construction of ellipses as preparatory 
to the drawing of irregular curves such as are required in 
cam design.

CERTIFICATES. 

Certificates were issued for the first time during the 
season of 1898-1899. The only class receiving certificates 
last year was the drawing class. In this class there were 
twelve certificates issued. I think that the issuing of cer- 
tificates for meritorious work will prove to be of much 
value to the school, in that it will have a tendency to keep 
the students interested and keep them in the school until 
they complete their course of study. 



184 

A certificate is issued for each year's work, and at the 
end of the course a diploma is given and the certificates are 
taken up by the school. 

The teachers in the various departments have been inter- 
ested in their work and have given the students all assist- 
ance necessary to a complete understanding of the subject 
being studied. 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. W. LOWE, 
Principal of Evening Schools. 



INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL REPORT.

The vacation school for carpentry opened in the little 

Everett school building, as heretofore, July 6th, 1899, and 

closed August 23rd, 1899. 

Seventy-eight boys applied, and continued with good 

interest during the term. 

The average daily attendance was twenty-nine, and the

Respectfully, 

GEO. E. WEBB.

SEWING SCHOOL REPORT. 

The Sewing School for the summer of 1899 began July 
6, with an attendance of eleven in the printed cloth class, 
and sixteen in the unbleached samples class. These classes 
were taught in the morning. 

The printed cloth class used the pieces of printed cloth 
devised by Miss Johnson, the teacher of sewing in the 
Brookline schools, and also made practice pieces following 
the same outlines. 

The unbleached sampler class made a sampler of un- 
bleached cotton showing, when finished, the different kinds 
of stitches, patches, seams, and fells. 

The bleached sampler class, which was held afternoons, 
made samplers of fine white cotton showing, when finished, 
the same as the unbleached samplers and also a band, a 
gusset, a darn, cat stitch, embroidery edge stitch, etc. On 
account of the limited time and the irregularity of attend- 
ance, these two classes were unable to complete their work. 

In the drafting class, each girl took measures, cut and 
drafted a pattern, and made a dressing sack. With the 
exception of two, they were all finished, and those on 
account of absence. 

The attendance was varying, the smallest number present 
in the morning being eleven, the largest thirty-two, and the 
average twenty-three. The smallest number present in the 
afternoon was eight, the largest twentv-five, and the average 
fifteen. 



186 

The whole number of sessions held was twenty-nine — 
fifteen in the morning and fourteen in the afternoon. The 
per cent, of attendance mornings was forty-five per cent., 
and that of the afternoons, fifty-one per cent. 

KATE FARLIN, Teacher. 



PUBLIC INTEREST IN THE SCHOOLS. 

An active and intelligent interest in the schools character- 
izes a very large proportion of our citizens. The ready 
response to the suggestion of a permanent educational or- 
ganization of parents and other friends of the public schools 
of Hyde Park was, I believe, thoroughly characteristic, and 
certainly has been an abundant source of gratification and 
moral support to those whose first interest is the improve- 
ment, by every possible means, of the quality and extent of 
public education. The formation of the Hyde Park Educa- 
tion Society is an indication of a healthful and wide spread 
interest which is deserving of every encouragement. 

The problems of school management require time for 
their solution. True progress in education, like education 
itself, is a matter of growth and development rather than of 
upheaval and violent transformation. That the changes of 
the past year have not been spectacular is matter for con- 
gratulation. That there has been unusually rapid develop- 
ment along right lines, seems to be very generally conceded. 
As contributing toward this gratifying condition of school 
affairs, the influence of self-sacrificing personal effort on the 
part of the committee, the faithful devotion of teachers, and 
the interest and hearty support of citizens cannot be over- 
estimated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANK O. DRAPER, 

Superintendent. 
Hyde Park, January 29, 1900.

CLASS ODE. 

Words by H. D. Darling. Music by Alice B. Farnswortn. 

Four years have glided from our lives 

Since first we met some sixty strong. 
Alas, are these few comrades here 

All that these years have passed along? 
Ah me, 'tis true, some duty called, 

With cheering hopes or doubting fears ; 
We whom they left forget them not ; 

Farewell, ye friends of former years. 

May fortune on your footsteps move ; 

May she to us prove also kind. 
We, too must now her favors seek, 

And as we merit, may we find. 
So ever let us shun disgrace, 

Tho' wealth and power may it repay. 
For honor lives beyond the grave, 

Power and wealth but for the day. 

Blank pages are the future's book. 

In which with true unswerving hand 
We write the record day by day, 

Oi all we've done and all we've planned. 
May pride of birth and pride of home, 

And pride of Alma Mater dear, 
Uplift, sustain, and nerve us all 

To keep our daily pages clear.

Previously reported 
Total constructed to date, 

It will be noted that the most important work begun dur- 
ing the year has been a trunk sewer through the Page street 
area. The sewer runs nearly parallel to the brook through 
the low'land lying between Huntington avenue and Central 
avenue at Page street, thence through Page street and 
across private land to Park street. A number of interviews 
and some correspondence were had with the owners of prop- 
erty along the line. Options were finally obtained for a 40 
foot strip for the sum of $4,635 for 62,500 square feet of 
land. On June 28, 1899, the Board made a taking in fee 
of this strip, which is wide enough for sewer purposes and 
also for any future improvements. In July the Board ad- 
vertised for bids for construction of a part of this sewer ; on 
July 17, the contract was awarded to P. H. Rooney, the 
lowest bidder. Construction in the Page street area was 
begun August 10. Progress has been slow, due to the large 
quantity of rock encountered. The contract calls for the con- 
struction of about 7300 lineal feet of sewer, to be completed 
on or before June 1, 1900. 

It will also be noted that important sewer construction has 
been done in the Readville district. In July the Board ad- 
vertised for bids for constructing sewers in Hyde Park 
avenue, sections 8 and 9, from Factory street to the Read 
ville Machine Shop. 



211 

The contract was awarded July 17th to Long & Little, 
the lowest bidders. This is the heaviest sewer construction 
this department has undertaken. It consists of about seven- 
eighths of a mile of 20 inch and 24 inch vitrified pipe laid 
at depths ranging from 7 to 22 feet through materials vary- 
ing ironi quicksand to solid rock. The crossing ot Mother 
Brook was made with extra heavy cast-iron pipe 24 inches 
in diameter. It was necessary to construct a concrete 
foundation the entire length of this sewer. 

Three hundred feet of new first-class fire hose has been 
purchased to be used solely for flushing. The whole sys- 
tem was flushed in May and December 1899. 

The proposed construction of the Metropolitan High Level 
Sewer across and beneath Stony Brook in the Clarendon 
Hills district has led your Board to make a study for the 
further improvement of that brook. As stated in our an- 
nual report for 1899. this High Level Sewer will relieve the 
Clarendon Hills district. 

The town of Hyde Park will pay its just proportion of 
the cost of this High Level Sewer. But the economy to the 
town is apparent, as it will obviate the necessity of building 
over a mile of town sewer at a cost of not less than $60,000. 

Pursuant to (1) Chapter 287 of the Acts of the Legisla- 
ture for 1896 ; (2) the vote of the Town Meeting of March 
24, 1897 ; (3) the vote of the Board of Sewer Commis- 
sioners of January 25, 1899 ; sewer assessments have been 
completed, a system of proper blanks have been prepared, 
and bills have been duly rendered for all estates upon streets 
in which sewers have been constructed. 1345 bills have been 
rendered, amounting to $92,707.17. At the date of this re- 
port the assessment on 518 estates has been paid in full and 
the assessment on 49 estates has been partially paid. The 
total amount paid on assessments is $33,068.26; 246 bills 
have, upon due application, been apportioned. 



212 

The Board is fully satisfied with the progress in the ad- 
ministration of this assessment. And the Board wishes to 
thank the citizens for the prompt and cheerful manner in 
which they have met this additional but necessary burden. 

One hundred and nineteen house connections, aggregat- 
ing 5,892 feet in length, have been made the past year. 
The total number made is 318, total length, 16,642 feet. 
This work is all done under the supervision of the Board, 
upon application by the owners made on blanks obtained 
from the Board, the owner paying the actual costs, which 
amout to about 60 cents per lineal foot. 

The following figures should be of vital interest to every 
citizen : 

Population of Hyde Park about .... 13,000 
Population of the sewered area about . . . 8,000 

Total number of dwellings, stores and public buildings, 2,4o<) 
Number of dwellings, stores and public buildings in 

the sewered area 1,2.50 

Total number ot house connections, ... 318 

Number of dwellings, stores, and public buildings 

served 493 

Number of persons contributing to the sewers, . 2,500 

It is thus seen that only one-fifth of the people of Hyde 
Park are availing themselves of the use of the sewers. 

The situation thus disclosed is an unsatisfactory one. 
Your Board has before this had occasion to urge upon all 
citizens the importance of connection with the system of 
sewers. A system of sewers is no protection to a town un- 
less it is used by all. 

The large amounts of money appropriated to this public 
service are spent in vain unless the system is used by all. 
The householder who does not connect his premises with the 
public sewerage system endangers not only himself, but his 
neighbors, and the whole community. Your Board wish in 
this report to urge upon every householder his obligation to 
take immediate steps to connect his premises with the public 
sewers. Although your Board is quite aware that it fully 



213 

performs its duty by providing the public system of sewer- 
age, and that the power to compel householders to connect 
their premises with that system lies in another of your town 
Boards, yet your Board wishes in this public way to appeal 
to the good sense of the citizens, — That henceforth your 
Board may feel no responsibility in this regard.

AUDITORS' REPORT. 



In compliance with the By-laws of the Town, the undersigned have 
examined the books of the Selectmen, School Committee, Cemetery 
Commissioners, Board of Health, Sewer Commissioners, and Town 
Treasurer, and proved them correct; all payments being accom- 
panied by duly approved vouchers. 

We have made a very thorough examination of the b^oks and 
accounts of the Collector of Taxes, and find upon comparison with 
his submitted report, a balance of $81.13 on account of 1897 taxes, 
and $11.35 on account ot those of 1898, said amounts having been 
debited in his accounts, and will appear in his next annual statement. 

It is the opinion of this board that the Tax Collector, when making 
his annual report, should submit a list of all unpaid taxes ; not only 
those of the current year, but of all previous years, in their entirety. 
It must be very evident to every voter of the benefits that would be 
derived by such a procedure, and would recommend that the town 
take some action on the matter. 

By the report of the Board of Health, it will be seen that the 
receipts for swill are kept in possession of the board, and not 
turned in to the Town Treasurer, the purpose being, we are told, to 
defray certaiu expenditures at convenient times without drawing 
orders on the Town Treasurer. This has been a custom of their 
predecessors but, as it is a keeping of a fund within a fund, we take 
the liberty of mentioning it without recommendations. 

It is also the opinion of the board, that the Assessors each year 
should submit in the Town Report an itemized statement of abate- 
ments made by them during the year, and would recommend that the 
town so instruct. 

In the report of the Sewer Commissioners there is an item which 
they have not mentioned. 

There is a cash balance to the credit of the town of $1,489.61, 
which is an accumulation of funds since the commencement of 
sewerage construction, and is composed of the profit on pipe, in- 
spection, and superintendance. This fund is in charge of the Sewer 
Commissioners. 

In conclusion, we wish to bring to the attention of the voters a 
matter which should receive their considerate attention. 



224 

It has long been a custom that in issuing the Town Report that it 
should be ready for distribution before the town election, in March. 
A lew years ago this could be done, but the work of some of the 
departments has increased to the extent that it has become quite an 
effort to compile their respective reports within the time limit, and 
give the printer the necessary time to publish them. 

It would seem that if, in the future, the reports could be distributed 
one week before the appropriation meeting next following the 
annual town election, that they would serve their purpose as well, 
and thus greatly assist the officers of the several departments. 

We would recommend the adoption of the above suggestion. 

Respectfully submitted,
