*This Board was abolished Dec. 28, 1904. 


To the Citizens of Hyde Park: 

Your Board of Selectmen, as required by law, submit their 
annual report for the fiscal year ending January 31, 1905. 


The funded debt of the town January 31, 1904, outside of 
fixed Metropolitan and Grade Crossing charges, was as fol- 

Sewerage Loan $160,000.00 

Public Library Building Loan 15,000.00 

High School Building Loan 54,000.00 

Trescott School Building Loan 15,000.00 

High School Furniture and Furnishings Loan 5,000.00 

Total as above described $249,000.00 

During the past year $15,000 of the above amount has 
been paid on the maturity of fixed annual payments. 

The funded debt of the town January 31, 1905 (not includ- 
ing Metropolitan and Grade Crossing charges) is as follows: 

Sewerage Loan $151,000.00 

Public Library Building Loan 14,000.00 

High School Building Loan 51,000.00 

Trescott School Building Loan 14,000.00 

High School Furniture and Furnishings Loan 4,000.00 

Total debt $234,000.00 

The town debt as above set forth is due and payable annu- 
ally as follows: 



Sewerage Loan — $5,000 annually until 1927. 

Sewerage Loan — $4,000 annually until 1913. 

Public Library Building Loan — $1,000 annually until 19 18. 

High School Building Loan — $3,000 annually until 1921. 

Trescott School Building Loan — $1,000 annually until 1918. 


High School Building, Furniture and Furnishing Loan — 
$1,000 annually until 1908. 


The town receives each year various amounts outside of 
the tax levy. In some instances these amounts have been 
appropriated for various municipal purposes, and in some 
cases used to meet legal obligations against the town without 
any direct action. 

There are many unappropriated balances available in the 
treasury for appropriation, derived from various sources and 
your Board is causing a list thereof to be prepared, to guide 
our town in future appropriation meetings. 

The amounts as above set forth have been received in part 
from the following sources: Interest on unpaid taxes, inter- 
est on bank balances, insurance money, sale of land, Com- 
monwealth, corporation and national bank tax, other cash 
payments for various debts due from State, repayments from 
abolition of grade crossings, miscellaneous licenses, sale of 
merchandise, and from other sources, all of which we recom- 
mend should be considered in part from year to year, when 
our appropriations for annual payments on town debt and 
interest, or other necessary appropriations, are made. 

In the consideration of our municipal obligations, and 


some of the reasons for high tax rates, our citizens should 

consider what we pay outside of State and County taxes, 

and current municipal expenses. The following amounts 
have been paid during the past year: 

Abolition of grade crossing at Readville $11,068.55 

Metropolitan Park Loan 5,267.70 

Metropolitan Sewerage System 13,472.36 

Metropolitan Water Loan 3,091.24 


Our citizens should also carefully consider, in compre- 
hending all of our annual obligations and appropriations the 
cost, maintenance and extension of our sewer system. Dur- 
ing the past year alone our Town Treasurer has paid out for 
the above work the following amounts : 

Bonds due $ 9,000.00 

Interest on Bonds 6,220.00 

Metropolitan Sewerage Charges 13,472.36 

Cost of maintenance and extension 9,424.88 



On March 9, 1904, Henry S. Bunton, Esquire, our Town 
Treasurer for thirty years, sent to our Board his resignation. 
Gideon H. Haskell was appointed by our Board to serve as 
Treasurer pro tempore to fill the vacancy. Mr. Haskell 
entered upon the discharge of his duties as Treasurer, April 
13, 1904. 

We desire to place upon our town records, in our annual 
report, t,he sentiments expressed to Mr. Bunton at the time 
of his resignation. 

"We regret exceedingly your resignation and any causes which 
may have prompted it at this early date. This Board and all citi- 
zens recognize your faithful and commendable service to our town 


during the entire period of your official career. Our recognition as 
a Board is but the reflection of the universal public opinion in 
which you are held by our citizens." 

We fully appreciate the evidence of appreciation which 
has been continuous and universal by our citizens, as shown 
by his annual election for thirty years. 


Your Board of Selectmen, also Surveyors of Highways, 
unanimously appointed at the beginning of the year, Mr. 
Arthur T. Rogers as Superintendent of Streets. Mr. Rogers 
has been in charge of the Department by virtue of said 
appointment during the year. A detailed report of the work 
performed is to be found in another part of this report. 

We have not been able to carry out all of the work which 
in our opinion was necessary, owing to a decrease in the 
annual appropriation, but we have tried to distribute the 
same equitably throughout our town. 

The construction of Readville Street necessitated an 
expense of over $4,000. This work was imperatively neces- 
sary, and for past years has been delayed on account of the 
surface drainage problem for this section. 

We are pleased to report that the street with all necessary 
surface drains is constructed, and the future needs of many 
intersecting streets are fully comprehended, in relation to the 
needs for surface drainage. 

We recommend a more liberal policy in relation to the 
placing of cross walks throughout our town, also the placing 
of corner curbings at our street intersections, thus defining 
our street lines. 


The following named streets have been laid out by your 
Board during the year. We reported and recommended to 
the town their acceptance as public ways at the town meet- 


ing held December 28, 190.4. The town accepted our reports 
and appropriated the required amounts for building the 

We have not entered upon any of the new streets for the 
construction thereof on account of the season of the year. 
The building of these new streets should be one of the first 
works of the Board of Selectmen for next year. 

The following is a memorandum of the streets and 
amounts appropriated : 

Damon Street, appropriation seven hundred dollars. The 
amount for this work was transferred from the Street Water- 
ing appropriation for the current year. 

Safford Street, appropriation three hundred dollars. The 
amount for this work was transferred from the Street Water- 
ing appropriation for the current year. 

Regent Street, appropriation twenty-seven hundred dol- 
lars. The amount for this work was transferred from cur- 
rent year's appropriations and balances as follows: 

$ 604.85 from Beacon Street drain balance 

400.00 from collection of ashes and garbage appropriation 
695.15 from incidentals appropriation 
1,000.00 from interest appropriation 

$2,700.00 total. 

Wachusett Street, appropriation four hundred twenty-one 
and 57/100 dollars. The amount for this work was appropri- 
ated from amount in treasury received as repayment from 
abolition of grade crossing at Readville. 

Waterloo Street, appropriation four hundred dollars. The 
amount for this work was transferred from the current year's 
appropriations as follows: 

$200.00 from street watering appropriation 
200.00 from collection of ashes and garbage appropriation 

$400.00 total. 



The town voted December 9, 1903, to appropriate the sum 
of twenty-three hundred dollars to construct a drain through 
Garfield Avenue for surface drainage from said avenue, 
together with that of intersecting streets. Your present 
Board has caused this work to be completed and the drain 
is meeting the requirements in all particulars. 

This was a long needed piece of work and its construction 
has given great relief to this section. We expended two 
thousand and thirty-five dollars and sixty-six cents 
($2,035.66) from this appropriation. At the town meeting 
held December 28, 1904, upon our recommendation, one 
hundred and thirty-three dollars and forty-five cents 
(($133.45) was transferred to the Readville drain to meet the 
deficiency for that work, and at the same meeting the bal- 
ance of two Jiundred and thirty dollars and eighty-nine cents 
($230.89) was transferred to the Highway Department. 


At a town meeting held December 9, 1903, a report was 
made by the Selectmen recommending the laying out of a 
main drain for Readville Street and other streets. The town 
in town meeting accepted the report and authorized the con- 
struction as therein set forth. The work was entered upon 
by last year's Board of Selectmen, and was uncompleted at 
the time we assumed office. The town, upon the recom- 
mendation of last year's Board, appropriated for this work 
fourteen hundred and fifty (1450) dollars, the same to be 
taken for the highway appropriation for that year. We were 
unable to complete the work with the amount appropriated. 

At the town meeting held December 28, 1904, we pre- 
sented all the facts to the citizens and unanimously recom- 
mended that an unexpended balance from the Garfield 
Avenue drain, to the amount of one hundred and thirty-three 


and 45/100 dollars, be transferred to meet the deficiency in 
carrying out this work. T,he recommendation of your 
Selectmen was approved by the town, and the amount neces- 
sary was transferred. The work has been fully completed 
and the drain is working- satisfactorily to your Board and to 
our citizens. Upon the construction of this main drain, it 
was possible for us to construct Readville Street and to take 
care of the surface drainage from the same, and eventually 
other intersecting streets, which are referred to in another 
part of this report. 


The problem of disposing of the surface water that collects 
at the intersection of Westminster Street and Hyde Park 
Avenue .has been before your various Boards of Selectmen 
for many years. The conditions at this point called for some 
permanent construction to remedy the difficulty: 

At the town meeting held December 28, 1904, we recom- 
mended that a drain and catch basins be constructed at this 
point to solve the difficulty. Upon our recommendation the 
town transferred from our Incidental appropriation for the 
present year an amount not exceeding five hundred dollars 
for this purpose. 

This work should be commenced in t,he early spring. 


For many years the owners of property in the vicinity of 
Neponset Avenue have entered various complaints against 
the turning of surface water collected from various intersect- 
ing streets upon the private land in this locality. 

We carefully considered the matter and were satisfied that 
some action should be taken to avoid any further trouble 
from this question. Plans and estimates were considered, 
and at the town meeting held December 28, 1904, we recom- 


mended an appropriation of six hundred dollars, the amount 
necessary to do the work. 

The amount was duly appropriated from the money in the 
hands of the Treasurer received as a repayment on account 
of the abolition of the grade crossing at Readville. 

This work should be commenced as soon as the condition 
of the weather will permit. 


As set forth in the last annual report of your Board of 
Selectmen, Linwood Street had been accepted as a public 
way. Your present Board of Selectmen has caused the 
necessary work to be done. The town appropriated for the 
work on December 9, 1903, the sum of four hundred (400) 
dollars. .The work has been properly and satisfactorily com- 
pleted at an expense of one hundred and seventy-seven 
45/100 dollars. The original amount of this appropriation 
was transferred from the highway appropriation and there 
remained after the completion of the work an unexpended 
balance. At the town meeting held December 28, 1904, upon 
the recommendation of our Board, the balance was trans- 
ferred back to the Highway Department, amounting to two 
hundred and twenty-two 55/100 dollars. 


Under the law many of the various Departments of the 
town are, in every sense of the word, separate and distinct. 
These Departments perform their necessary functions with 
independent appropriations. In order that all might be 
brought into closer relations for the common good of our 
government and to consider various municipal questions, the 
Board of Selectmen, following the action of last year's 
Board, appointed an Advisory Committee under the follow- 
ing vote: 


That a committee of twenty-eight be appointed by this Board to 
act in connection with the Board of Selectmen and the Town Treas- 
urer, together with the Chairmen of the following Boards, viz.: 
School Committee, Public Library Trustees, Board of Health, Over- 
seers of the Poor, Sewer Commissioners, and the Board of Assess- 
ors, to consider the question of our municipal obligations; the ad- 
ministration of our various Departments; the coming year's annual 
appropriations; property values and assessments; also to make such 
report and recommendation to the Town concerning the administra- 
tion of any and all Departments that the circumstances and require- 
ments may justify. 

A partial report of the Advisory Committee is to be found 
in another part of this report. 

We believe that the appointment and work of the Advisory 
Committee for the two years that it has been in existence, has 
met with the general approval and satisfaction of our citizens. 

In our opinion such a committee, under our form of gov- 
ernment, is wise and necessary, and productive of great good 
to our general welfare. Under the workings of such a com- 
mittee the needs and requirements of all Departments can 
be carefully considered and ascertained, so that when final 
action is taken by the town our citizens know that a body of 
citizens, outside of town officials, have carefully considered 
the various subjects, and aware that their recommendations 
are based upon their sound judgment and study. We recom- 
mend a similar committee in future years. 


We .have in many of our public ways a large number of 
shade trees. It has been many years since any particular 
attention has been given to the question of trimming any of 
these trees. In some instances they are so low that many of 
the traveling public have been either damaged or annoyed by 
the low branches. Our electric light system in some in- 
stances is rendered very inadequate owing to the large num- 
ber of branches that surround or are near the lamps. 


As this is a matter whic.h calls for special work at the pres- 
ent time, we recommend that an appropriation be made 
directly for this purpose. 


At the last annual appropriation meeting held March 28, 
1904, the town voted to instruct its Board of Health to trans- 
fer the property and equipment used in the collection of 
ashes and garbage to the Selectmen. An appropriation of 
fifty-three hundred dollars was made by the town for the use 
of the Selectmen for this purpose. 

We .have managed this duty through your Street Depart- 
ment, under the head of Sanitary Division, keeping the work 
and appropriation separate. We have interchanged services 
in this work with the regular Street Department, thereby 
making a considerable saving to the town. We recom- 
mended at the town meeting December 28, 1904, that the 
sum of six hundred dollars be transferred from the appro- 
priation for this sanitary work to other municipal work, as 
set forth in our report on new streets. 

We have made a new arrangement for tjhe sale of garbage 
collected whereby the town will receive about twenty per 
centum more than the former price. 

It was suggested to our Board that the garbage should 
be collected by contract. With this idea in mind we caused 
bids to be furnished concerning this work. Upon full con- 
sideration, we decided to continue the collection by town 
teams, in connection with the one contract route now con- 
trolled by Mrs. Emily R. Hukin. 

In our administration of this Department we have enforced 
the rule that t,he employees were not to go through any part 
of a dwelling to reach the cellar. The reason for this is 
obvious, as it would require additional labor to execute the 
work and greater care would be necessary in bringing barrels 
and other receptacles through any living room on first floors. 

J 9 

In all instances, however, the employees, when the cellar 
was accessible, through an outside door, have removed all 
ashes and other waste material. As far as possible, espe- 
cially throughout the centre of the town where trips are 
made on regular days, it is much better to have all material 
to be carried away placed on the outside of buildings, as is 
usually required where this work is done by municipal gov- 

We trust that this work has been satisfactorily carried out 
by us. 


The street lighting of the town is under a contract entered 
into with the Hyde Park Electric Light Company for a 
period of ten years from January 6, 1898. 

In substance said contract provides as follows: 

Originally 119 arc lamps, 2,000 c. p. 

57 incandescent lamps 26 c. p., for which service the town 
was to pay $8,532 per annum. Additional lamps to be pro- 
vided at the rate of $70 per year for each arc and $16 per 
year for each incandescent lamp. The lamps to burn one- 
half hour after sunset and until 12.30 o'clock every dark 
night, also until one hour after moon rises, and one hour 
before it sets, if not dark, all to be to the approval of the 
Chief of Police. There is also a provision that in all or cer- 
tain sections the lights may burn all night for additional com- 
pensation, — $40 for arc, and $8 for incandescent lamps; also 
for an additional part of the night, — 5c. for arc and ic. for 
incandescent lamp, per hour. 

We now have, under and by virtue of said contract and 
additions thereto, the following lights distributed throughout 
our town, as follows: 

Arc 140 

Ordinary incandescents 89 

All night incandescents 5 



Outside of the contract as above we have in use thirteen 
all-night gas lamps for which the town pays twenty-five dol- 
lars each. 

In our outlying district near the Boston line at Clarendon 
Hills we have a few kerosene lamps. 

The town, at the meeting held December 28, 1904, author- 
ized new lights placed in various parts of our town. A few of 
the new lights are in position. The remainder will be placed 
immediately, as we .have located all of them and the com- 
pany has been duly authorized to proceed with the work. 


Attention was called in the Town Reports of 1903 and 1904 
to the necessity of a crossing over the railroad tracks and 
river at Glenwood Station. We understand that the com- 
mittee, to whom this matter was referred at a town meeting, 
held Dec. 9, 1903, have had several conferences with the 
Metropolitan Park Commission and the railroad officials, 
both of whom are interested in the matter, and it is expected 
that the committee will make a full and favorable report at 
the next town meeting. A crossing at this point would open 
up a large section of land and bring it within easy walking 
distance of our large industrial plants, which can now be 
reached only by going a long distance. We believe that the 
matter deserves favorable and immediate action at the 
hands of the town. 


At the annual appropriation meeting held March 28, 1904, 
the town voted to authorize its Board of Selectmen to peti- 
tion the General Court for necessary legislation, that the 
town might consider the question of abolishing the Board 
of Sewer Commissioners. 

The Bill under the above vote was duly prepared and pre- 


sented to the Legislature and the necessary legislation 
became a law. Acts of 1904, Chap. 339. The Act to become 
operative upon its acceptance by the town. 

At a town meeting held December 28, 1904, the town 
voted to accept the provisions of the above Act and the 
Board of Sewer Commissioners was thereby abolished. 

Your Board of Selectmen under and by virtue of said law 
are for all purposes the lawful successors of said Board of 
Sewer Commissioners. 

We have appointed Mr. Clarence G. Norris Engineer for 
our sewer work, with the understanding that all town engi- 
neering under the control of the Selectmen is to be per- 
formed by him. His salary of fifteen hundred dollars per 
annum, which is to include services for all town work, is the 
same amount previously paid by the Sewer Department for 
their Engineer alone. 

At a meeting held January 9, 1905, it was voted, "that all 
charges in relation to house connections for superintendence 
and inspection be abolished," it being our intention to reduce 
to the actual cost all future house connection, so that our 
citizens, in larger numbers, will avail themselves of the great 
benefits of our sewer system. 

Our first Board of Sewer Commissioners was elected May 
6, 1896. Under the original act, Chapter 287, Acts 1896, the 
town was authorized to borrow, for the payment of all neces- 
sary expenses and liabilities incurred, in the construction of 
our system, $150,000. By the Act of 1898 the town was 
authorized to borrow $100,000 additional, for the same pur- 
pose. Under the law as above set forth the town has issued 
bonds to the amount of one hundred and ninety thousand 
dollars. Your Board of Selectmen now have authority to 
issue additional bonds or notes of tjie town, under said laws, 
for sixty thousand dollars, together with the right to use the 
payments made by abutters on account of the sewer assess- 
ments, for the extension and maintenance of our system. 


The original act provides in part as follows: "Section n. 
The receipts from assessments, and payments made in lieu 
thereof under this act, shall be applied to the payment of the 
charges and expenses for and incident to the maintenance 
and operation of said system of sewerage, and for the pay- 
ment of the furt,her extension of the said system or systems, 
except that said town may apply any portion of such receipts 
to the payment of the interest upon said bonds, notes or 
scrip issued under authority of this act not otherwise pro- 
vided for, or to the payment or redemption of said bonds, 
notes or scrip, as the said town shall by vote determine, and 
shall be used for no other purpose. If said receipts shall not 
be sufficient for said purposes in any year then in such case 
said town shall raise forthwith by taxation, in the same 
manner as money is raised and appropriated for other town 
purposes, the balance required therefor." 

By the terms of the above section the town may, by vote, 
pay the whole, or a part, of its maturing obligations and 
interest on account of its sewer construction, from the 
receipts from sewer assessments levied on abutters. 

We submit that no greater burdens should be placed upon 
present property holders, by taxation, than public needs and 
requirements justify, and submit for the consideration of the 
town the question of meeting the whole or a part of our 
annual payments on account of your sewer loan and interest, 
for the payments made to our town, from said assessments 
and betterments, thereby leaving the burden of our future 
sewer extensions to bond issues, which may, under the law, 
be extended over any part of a period of forty years. Our 
sewer system is as much for the future as for the present, 
and as much of the burdens of its construction, as circum- 
stances will justify, should be placed in future tax levies. In 
this way the present tax payers will not have to be subjected 
to excessive tax rates, and we will thereby equitably charge 
our future property holders with this work, which they will 


enjoy, perhaps more than we. The present policy has been 
to pay for the extensions to our service from receipts or 
cash on hand, thereby relieving unfairly, future tax payers, 
from payments, the benefits of which they will enjoy. 

The cost of our sewer system to date, as appears from the 
records of the former Board of Sewer Commissioners, out- 
side of salaries, amounts to $304,035.01, the same being 
divided as follows:

When the present Board of Selectmen assumed their office 
March, 1904, Deputy Sheriff William Wragg was serving as 
Chief of Police. Mr. Wragg in our last town report recom- 
mended "that some one be appointed to the office of Chief 
of Police who can devote his whole time to the business." 
Many of our citizens, notwithstanding Mr. Wragg's recom- 
mendation, desired him to continue at the head of our Police 

It was understood by all parties that Mr. Wragg's appoint- 
ment by the Selectmen was not to be a permanent one. 

Mr. Wragg's resignation to our Board was received as 
herein set forth. 

Hyde Park, Mass., May 31, 1904. 
The Honorable Board of Selectmen, Hyde Park, Mass. 

Gentlemen: I hereby resign as Chief of Police of Hyde Park, to 
take effect upon the qualification of my successor. 
Yours very respectfully, 


Chief of Police. 

We take pleasure, in this public manner, in setting forth 
the letter unanimously indorsed by our Board to Mr. Wragg 
upon his retirement. 

Hyde Park, Mass., May 31, 1904. 
William Wragg, Esq., Hyde Park, Mass. 

Dear Sir: At a meeting of the Board held this day it was voted 
"that in accepting the resignation of Mr. Wragg as Chief of Police, 
to take effect upon the election and qualification of his successor, 
this Board tender to Mr. Wragg our thanks for his conscientious 
work in behalf of our force and our appreciation of the good work 
accomplished by the Department while under his supervision." 
Yours very respectfully, 




At our meeting held July n, 1904, Jason W. Butters of 
Boston, by a majority vote, was elected by our Board to fill 
the vacancy caused by Mr. Wragg's resignation. After- 
wards at the same meeting the vote was made unanimous. 

Mr. Butters was a former Lieutenant in the Boston Police 
Department and had been stationed at the Boston Police 
Headquarters in Pemberton Square. He was strongly rec- 
ommended to our Board by his former superior officers and 
by many well known people who had knowledge concerning 
his experience as an officer and his standing as a citizen. 

We did not, at the time of Air. Butters' appointment, have 
him fully qualified under the Civil Service Rules of the Com- 
monwealth (which rules are hereinafter referred to), al- 
though said Civil Service Rules were adopted at our last 
annual meeting. Our action was based, as we believed, on 
sound judgment, and without disregarding the Civil Service 
Rules of the Commonwealth, and without the slightest dis- 
approval of the Civil Service Commissioners of the Common- 
wealth, before whom all facts and conditions were fully pre- 

On January 16, 1905, our Board, with consideration for the 
Civil Service Rules of the Commonwealth, caused the follow- 
ing letter to be sent the Civil Service Commissioners. 

Hyde Park, Mass., Jan. 17, 1905. 
Board of Civil Service Commissioners, State House Boston, Mass. 

Dear Sir: At a meeting of our Board of Selectmen held Jan. 16, 
1905, it was voted to ask your Board to give Jason W. Butters of 
Hyde Park, Mass., who has for more than six months been in charge 
of our Police Department, a non-competitive Civil Service exam- 
ination for appointment under Civil Service Rules of this Common- 
wealth as a police officer, and to be designated by our Board to your 
Commission as an officer and employee in the public service of this 
town classified under the Civil Service Rules of this Commonwealth. 
Said appointee to be designated as such officer and employee as 
Officer-in-Charge of the Police Department and Captain of the 
Police Force, and within the classified Civil Service at a salary of 
$1,500 per annum. 


In asking for a non-competitive examination and certification as 
above set forth, we desire to state that said Jason W. Butters has 
special qualifications owing to long experience in police duties which 
make him an officer of exceptional ability for our Department. 
Very respectfully, 



On January 26, 1905, the following reply was received: 


Boston, Mass., Jan. 25, 1905. 
To the Board of Selectmen, Hyde Park, Mass. 

Dear Sirs: Your letter of the 17th instant, requesting the non- 
competitive examination of Jason W. Butters for appointment to 
the position of captain in charge of the police force of Hyde Park, 
was considered by the commissions at their meeting yesterday, and 
it was voted to grant your request. 

Inasmuch as it appears from our records that Mr. Butters was 
twice examined for promotion in the Boston police department and 
passed the examination successfully, the commissioners decided that 
no further educational examination would be required, but that he 
would be subjected to a physical examination, and if he passes, will 
be regularly certified to you for appointment. 
Very respectfully, 



Mr. Butters duly qualified under the physical part of the 
requirements and on January 27, 1905, the Civil Service 
Commissioners certified Mr. Butters to our Board for 
appointment at the head of our Police Department and under 
the Civil Service Rules of the Commonwealth. On January 
28, 1905, our Board unanimously appointed Jason W. But- 
ters as a police officer of our town and employee in charge of 
our Police Department and within the Classified Civil Ser- 
vice Rules of the Commonwealth. 

Mr. Butters' close association with the police officers of 
Boston has been a material grain to our service and we 


believe that our Police Department under his control has 
been wisely and efficiently administered. We are pleased to 
publicly present our full satisfaction in the administration of 
our Police Department as a whole under Mr. Butters. 


At our last annual town meeting held March 7, 1904, the 
town voted to accept the provisions of the Revised Laws 
concerning the Civil Service of the Commonwealth, and 
limited the application thereof to our Police Department. 

Under said Act each member of the force "shall continue 
to hold his office until his death, resignation or removal. He 
shall not be removed except for cause shown after a full 

The Act in force at the time of our adoption thereof has 
been further extended by law and approved May 9, 1904. 
Acts 1904, Chap. 314, as follows: 

Section 1. Every person holding office or employment in the 
public service of the Commonwealth or in any county, city or town 
thereof, classified under the civil service rules of the Commonwealth, 
shall hold such office or employment and shall not be removed 
therefrom, lowered in rank or compensation, or suspended, or, with- 
out his consent, transferred from such office or employment to any 
other except for just cause and for reasons specifically given in 

Sect. 2. The person sought to be removed, suspended, lowered 
or transferred shall be notified of the proposed action and shall be 
furnished with a copy of the reasons required to be given by section 
one, and shall, if he so requests in writing, be given a public hear- 
ing, and be allowed to answer the charges preferred against him 
either personally or by counsel. A copy of such reasons, notice and 
answer and of the order of removal, suspension or transfer shall be 
made a matter of public record. 

Your Board of Selectmen reappointed the present Engin- 

2 9 

eers of the Fire Department: John H. Wetherbee, John C. 
McDougald and Dennis W. Mahoney. 

As required by law said engineers duly organized, and 
re-elected John H. Wetherbee as Chief Engineer. The 
report of the various duties performed and the administration 
of this Department is found in detail in another part of this 
report. We congratulate the town on our faithful and effi- 
cient Department. 


The contract made with the Hyde Park Water Company 
October i, 1895, for a period of ten years, expires during the 
coming year, and it is important that the matter should be 
considered at an early date as it will be necessary to submit 
the same to the town before the expiration of the present 

For the information of our citizens we herewith present 
an abstract of the contract for this service. 

Contract with the Hyde Park Water Company was dated 
July 27, 1895. At the time of this contract one hundred and 
five hydrants were in position and seventy additional 
hydrants were contracted for, to be located by the Select- 
men, at that time. Term to be ten years from the first day 
of October, A. D., 1895. All hydrants in excess of one hun- 
dred and seventy-five shall be located and maintained on 
service line at the rate of twenty-five dollars per annum for 
each hydrant. For said one hundred and seventy-five 
hydrants for said period, the town is to pay fifty-five hun- 
dred dollars per annum, payment to be made annually. 

The additions made since the contract are as follows: 

Three additions January 14, 1896. 
Two additions October 20, 1897. 
One addition March 21, 1899. 
One addition June 30, 1899. 
One addition Sept. 12, 1902. 


There is one additional hydrant authorized December 28, 
1904, which has not yet been placed on account of the season 
of the year. 


The Directors of the Blue Hill Street Railway Company 
petitioned our Board, early in the present year, for a location 
of its tracks beyond their present location on Milton Street 
at Metropolitan Park land, and to cross said Milton Street 
for the purpose of connecting with its location in the town 
of Milton. 

This petition involved, as far as our Board was concerned, 
the right to cross Milton Street, thereby connecting the loca- 
tion of this company from Readville to the Blue Hills. The 
Railroad Commissioners have certified to our location as 
required by law. 

We are assured that the Company will have this new line 
in operation this coming year. 


As required by law the Board of Selectmen present to the 
citizens its selection of jurors for submission to the next 
annual appropriation meeting. The list is to be found in 
another part of this report. 


Your Board reappointed Richard F. Boynton as Inspector 
of Buildings for the year ending May 1, 1905, at the salary 
of $200 per annum. We refer our citizens to his report for 
further information concerning this Department. 


Several years ago the town voted a small sum of money 
to be used in making a beginning for Assessors' plans so 


that property areas might be accurately set forth and known. 
Our Assessors were then, and we understand are now, con- 
vinced that this is an important and necessary work. We 
contemplate, and have arranged with the Engineer of the 
Board of Selectmen, to make a substantial beginning on this 
work. We feel that as this work develops greater accuracy 
will result and areas and lines will be easily ascertained and 
determined. The carrying out of this work will be of great 
assistance to our Assessors, and the work has already been 


The question of ,a permanent clerk for the Board of Select- 
men has long been considered. We are of the opinion at 
the present time, that in consideration of the various duties 
performed by the Selectmen in relation to municipal work, 
including Sewer Department, collection of ashes and garbage 
and various other duties to be performed and the necessary 
records to be kept, that one clerk should be employed, who 
will devote his entire time to the town. If this recommenda- 
tion is carried out, the Selectmen's office will always be open 
during the day for the transaction of municipal business. 

We have started, by our clerk, Mr. Harry J. West, a 
detailed system of reports in relation to the cost of the vari- 
ous municipal works, that we may know with as much accu- 
racy and dispatch as possible the cost of any particular piece 
of work. 


Peter Rogers v. Hyde Park, suit for personal injuries in 
which damages for $4,000 were claimed, more fully described 
in preceding town reports, was reached for trial October 13, 
1904. Efforts had been made at different times to adjust this 
case without trial, but the difference between the parties was 
so great that they were unable to come together, until dur- 


ing the trial, when the case was settled, and pursuant to 
agreement, a verdict was directed for the town, upon the 
town agreeing to pay the plaintiff $400. 

Catherine E. Stanford v. Hyde Park, action for personal 
injuries caused by a defect in the Jiighway on River Street, 
more fully described in previous annual reports, was argued 
on briefs in the Supreme Judicial Court, in January, 1904, 
and a decision by that Court sustaining the verdict of $1,250 
received by the plaintiff in the Superior Court, was handed 
down February 29th of the same year. Judgment has been 
paid by the town. 

The cases of Mary D. Hammond v. Hyde Park, and J. 
Forest Hammond v. Hyde Park, two actions by minors, 
each claiming damages in the sum of $10,000, as more fully 
described in preceding town reports, grew out of the action 
of the School Committee at the time of the small-pox epi- 
demic in 1901-2, have been twice tried together before a 
jury, and are assigned by the Court as the first cases for trial 
at the present January sitting, and probably will have been 
tried when this report goes to press. 

Joseph J. Dunn v. Hyde Park, suit for personal injuries 
caused by an alleged defect in the highway, more fully 
described in previous annual reports, was dismissed in 
December, 1904. A motion by the plaintiff for the restora- 
tion of the case is pending, and will be opposed by counsel 
for t,he town. 

The petition for the abolition of the grade crossings at 
Fairmount Avenue and Bridge Street is still pending. The 
hearings were closed early in the fall and the matter taken 
under advisement by the Commissioners. Before any deci- 
sion on their part had been made, the Chairman of the Com- 
missioners, Henry P. Moulton, Esq., died suddenly, and since 
that time one of his associates, John J. Flaherty, Esq., has 
been seriously ill and is now absent from tjie Common- 
wealth. The death of Mr. Moulton will necessitate the 


appointment of an additional commissioner and further hear- 
ings, but these cannot be held until Mr. Flaherty's return. 

The action brought by William L. Holmes against the 
Board of Health to recover damages caused by alleged 
wrongful removal from the building where he was staying, 
under claim that he Jiad small-pox, is still pending. For 
further particulars as to this action, reference is made to the 
last report. 

The case of George A. Tillson against the town for injury 
claimed to have been received by reason of an alleged defect 
in Hyde Park Avenue near Kennedy's Block is still pending. 

The suit of Andrew Roman for alleged defect in Metro- 
politan Avenue was disposed of without trial and without 
expense to the town. 

In the last report reference was made to an action brought 
by Ethel A. L. Smith, a minor, claiming damages for alleged 
wrongful exclusion from school during the existence of 
small-pox in t,he town. This action has not been tried, and 
may await the final decision of the case of Mary D. Ham- 
mond and others against the town, which are somewhat of 
the same character. 

The last report gave a full statement of the endeavors of 
the last Board of Selectmen to secure a compliance by the 
Old Colony Street Railway Company with the terms of the 
original street railway location, granted in 1893 to the Nor- 
folk Suburban Street Railway Company, as to reconstruc- 
tion, paving, and repairs. The Old Colony Street Railway 
Company claimed that it was relieved from these obligations 
by a statute passed in 1898 and that the Board of Selectmen 
of 1893 had no right to put such requirements in the orig- 
inal location, and that the same were of no binding effect. 
A petition has been filed in the Supreme Judicial Court to 
test the validity of the orders of the Board, and of the orig- 
inal location, relative to these matters. After hearing before 
a single justice the case was reserved for the full bench of 


the Supreme Judicial Court, and the matter has been argued 
before that court, but no decision has yet been rendered. 

Under the provisions of Chapter 456 of the Acts of 1900, 
the County Commissioners were directed to build a new 
bridge over the Weymouth Fore River between Quincy 
Point and North Weymouth, at an expense not exceeding 
$100,000. Upon the completion of said bridge and the ascer- 
tainment of its cost and expense, the Commissioners were 
directed to file a report in the office of the Clerk of Courts 
for Norfolk County, and the Superior Court was directed to 
appoint three Commissioners to assess the expense of the 
bridge upon the County of Norfolk, and upon such cities, 
towns, and quasi-public corporations as the Commissioners 
should award and determine to be specially benefited by the 
bridge in such amounts as they shall award and determine to 
be fairly proportionate to the special benefits conferred by 
said bridge upon said county and the cities and town and 
corporations assessed. The court appointed a commission 
consisting of Henry P. Moulton, Esq., John J. Flaherty, 
Esq., and Ernest H. Vaughan, Esq., and notice was served 
upon the town of Hyde Park that it was one of the towns 
upon whom the expense of construction of said bridge might 
be apportioned. Extended hearings were held before this 
commission commencing on the 26th day of April, 1904, and 
closing on the nth day of July of the same year. This com- 
mission had not filed its report at the time of Mr. Moulton's 
death and further hearings and the report of the commis- 
sion have been delayed by the same reasons that have caused 
the delay in the final decision as to the matter of abolition 
of grade crossings at Fairmount Avenue and Bridge Street. 
We confidently expect that no part of the expense of this 
bridge will be charged upon this town. 

Under the laws in force as to apportionment of expense 
of care, maintenance, and operation of Metropolitan Park 
Reservations and Boulevards, a commission is appointed in 


every fiftji year to determine the proportion in which each 
of the cities and towns within the Metropolitan Park District 
shall pay into the treasury of the Commonwealth for said 
purposes for the ensuing five years. A new apportionment 
is to be made this year, and a petition has been filed in the 
Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County for the appoint- 
ment of a commission, and service has been made on the 
town. The order of notice thereon is returnable on -the 21st 
day of February, 1905. Under this petition a Commission 
will be appointed and hearings held at an early date. 

Chapter 491 of the Statute of 1901 required the Metro- 
politan Park Commissioners to build a drawbridge and ap- 
proaches across the Mystic River between the cities of Som- 
erville- and Medford, at a cost not exceeding $200,000, to be 
paid in part by such cities and towns in the County of Mid- 
dlesex as shall be found to be specially benefited by the use 
of said bridge for highway purposes, and in part by the 
Metropolitan Park District to such extent as said District 
shall be found to be benefited by the use of the bridge for 
park purposes, and in the proportion to be determined by a 
special commission. TJie Metropolitan Park Commission 
has filed a petition for the appointment of Commissioners to 
determine in proportion to such benefits the part of the cost 
of said bridge and approaches to be paid by each of said 
cities and towns in Middlesex County and by said Parks 
District. An order of notice upon this petition has been 
served upon the town returnable on the same date, as the 
petition last referred to, and the course of proceedings 
thereon will be substantially the same as under the last

Report of the Advisory Committee Appointed by 
the Selectmen. 

To the Citizens of Hyde Park: — 

At a meeting of the Board of Selectmen, held the twenty- 
fifth day of November, 1904, it was voted to follow the cus- 
tom inaugurated by the preceding Board and appoint an Ad- 
visory Committee, with duties and powers similar to those 
conferred upon its predecessor. 

The membership as appointed consisted of the five mem- 
bers of the Board of Selectmen, the Town Treasurer, the 
chairmen of the following boards, viz: School Committee, 
Public Library Trustees, Board of Health, Overseers of the 
Poor, Sewer Commissioners, Board of Assessors, and twen- 
ty-eight citizens representing the various sections of the 

The work of the Advisory Committee of the preceding 
year had met with such universal commendation and its rec- 
ommendations had been so emphatically endorsed by the cit- 
izens at the appropriation meeting, that the present Board of 
Selectmen recognized the importance of similar action this 

The full committee as appointed consisted of the following 
gentlemen: — 

Edwin C. Jenney, W. H. Powers, 

W. D. Preston, . H. B. Miner, 

Frank B. Rich, . C. F. Stack, 
H. S. Thompson, Geo. E. Haven, 

Richard W. Wright, David Perkins, 

G. H. Haskell, C. F. Morrison, 

4 2 

David W. Murray, A. L. Lovejoy, 

Charles Haley, Geo. H. Rausch, 

P. J. Fitzgerald, Jos. K. Knight, 

E. L. Barrett, S. E. Newell, 

J. G. McCarter, John Johnston, 

E. E. E. Bartlett, George Miles, 
Alfred Foster, Albert Davenport, 
H. M. Hamblin, S. T. Elliott, 
George Peabody, Calvin H. Lee, 
W. C. Deagle, H. S. Bunton, 

F. N. Tirrell, E. S. Hathaway, 
Chas. E. Palmer, L. P. Howard, 
J. S. Coveney, F. W. Darling, 
W. E. Norwood, George Jeffers. 

At the first meeting of this Committee, held on the evening 
of November 30th, organization was effected by the election 
of Francis W. Darling, Chairman, and William E. Norwood, 
Clerk. At this meeting four of the appointees signified their 
inability to serve, viz., E. L. Barrett, William C. Deagle, F. 
N. Tirrell and E. S. Hathaway. The Board of Selectmen 
filled the vacancies thus caused by the appointment of James 
A. Tilden, John H. Monahan, J. EL Farrell and J. F. Pring. 

This Committee, after careful consideration of the appro- 
priations necessary for the various town boards for the cur- 
rent municipal year, beg leave to make, in part, the follow- 
ing report. The work of the Advisory Committee will be 
continued along other lines, but we have -felt that, so far as 
the appropriations were concerned, our recommendations 
should appear in the Town Report, about to be issued, in 
order that citizens may have ample opportunity to consider 
them before the appropriation meeting. 

In the matter of the town's requirements for debt and in- 
terest, the amount needed, $24,400.00, is approved. 

The amount required for salaries, $5,460.00, is approved. 
This is $300.00 less than was appropriated last year on ac- 
count of the abolition of the Board of Sewer Commissioners. 


We recommend the appropriation of the usual amount, 
$200.00, for the Grand Army Post. 

We recommend the appropriation of $1,000.00, voted at 
the last town meeting, December 28, 1904, for the School 
Committee, to be paid from the tax levy of 1905. 

We recommend, as did the Advisory Committee of last 
year, that no money be appropriated for the observance of 
Independence Day. 

A petition from certain citizens has been received, through 
the Board of Selectmen, asking our approval of the appro- 
priation of $400.00 for band concerts during the summer. 
While this committee does not disapprove the object of this 
petition, it feels that the town should not be asked to pay 
the entire expense of an institution which is naturally re- 
munerative to a few citizens. We believe it is the custom in 
some towns to raise by subscription the larger part of what 
is necessary and for the town to appropriate the balance. 
Such a proposition might have met with the approval of our 
committee but we did not feel that we could approve the ap- 
propriation of so large an amount for the enjoyment of a 
limited number of our townspeople and the lucrative benefit 
of a very few citizens. Action upon the petition as it appears 
therefore was indefinitely postponed by the committee. 

We recommend that the Board of Assessors shall tax all 
land on which are bill boards, as improved landL 

We recommend the appropriation of $300,00 for the trim- 
ming and removal of trees, to be expended by the Tree War- 
den, under the direction of the Board of Selectmen. This 
action is recommended in response to the request of Tree 
Wardens and of many citizens. 

We come now to the consideration of the requirements of 
the several boards of the town government. First, we take 
up the requirements of the Board of Selectmen. 

The amounts voted last year were: 


Highways .- $22,000.00 

Incidentals 10,000.00 

Police 11,201.00 

Fire Department 11,700.00 

Street Lighting 10,850.00 

Street Watering 4,500.00 

Removing Garbage and Ashes 5,300.00 


We recommend the appropriation of the following amounts 
for these purposes for the present year: 

Highways $25,000.00 

Incidentals 10,000.00 

Police 13,836.00 

Fire Department 12,400.00 

Street Lighting 11,350.00 

Street Watering 4,500.00 

Garbage and Ashes 5,000.00 


We further recommend that the amounts received for ex- 
cise and franchise taxes and betterments be appropriated to 
use on the highways, as last year. 

We investigated carefully the conclusion reached by our 
sub-committee on Police that a town ambulance had become 
practically a necessity, and we are of the opinion that the 
Board of Selectmen should be instructed to procure a com- 
bination ambulance and patrol wagon. At our request an 
article will be inserted in the town warrant covering this sug- 

The Board requiring the next largest appropriation is the 
School Committee. For this department we recommend the 
appropriation of $54,700.00, being $2,500.00 more than last 
year, occasioned by requirements for extra teachers. Last 
year you devoted the sum receved from fines collected from 
defendants in criminal cases to the School Committee, for 
plumbing at the Greenwood School. This year you have al- 


ready appropriated about one-half the sum anticipated for 
repairs and changes at the Police Station. 

For the Board of Health we recommend the appropriation 
of $1,400.00, the same as last year. 

For the Overseers of the Poor we recommend the appro- 
priation of $7,500.00, being $700.00 less than last year. 

For the Public Library we recommend the appropriation 
of $4,000.00, being $200.00 more than last year. 

A comparative statement of the amounts appropriated in 
1903 and 1904 and those advised by us for the current year, 
is as follows: 

1903. 1904. 1905. 

Selectmen $86,300.00 $75,551.00 $82,086.00 

Schools 55,600.00 52,200.00 54,700.00 

Poor 10,000.00 8,200.00 7,500.00 

Health 6,800.00 1,400.00 1,400.00 

Library 4,000.00 3,800.00 4,000.00 

Bonds, Notes and Interest 25,000.00 25,000.00 24,400.00 

Salaries 5,685.00 5,760.00 5,460.00 

Grand Army 200.00 200.00 200.00 

Fourth of July 350.00 

Voted in previous years to pay 

from next tax levy 6,900.00 . . 1,000.00 

Police Signal System 3,750.00 

Steam Roller 2,650.00 

Trees . . . . 300.00 

$207,235.00 $172,111.00 $181,046.00 

The information obtained by us as to the probable amounts 
of the State and County taxes this year would seem to in- 
dicate a phenomenal increase over last year. We have no 
means of obtaining exact information but such as we have 
points to an increase of perhaps $8,000.00 over 1904. Of 
itself, this would cause an increase in the tax rate of about 
fifty or sixty cents. The increase over last year in our rec- 
ommended appropriation would amount to about $9,000.00. 

4 6 

In offset of this, the increased valuation is expected to be 
somewhat less than normal. As to the Metropolitan charges 
for sewer, parks, water and grade crossings, we have been 
unable to acquire any exact information but we anticipate 
they may not, in the aggregate, vary much from last year, 
the amount for these purposes then being $32,899.85. 

In closing we are pleased to state that all boards of the 
town government have co-operated with us in our labors and 
have approved of our findings. Every recommendation here- 
in made has been adopted unanimously by this committee.

Report of the Board of Engineers of the 
Fire Department. 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

Gentlemen: The Board of Engineers herewith present 
their annual report for the year ending January 31, 1905. 

The Department has responded to ninety-five alarms dur- 
ing the past year, fifty bell and forty-five still. There have 
been fifteen no school signals, and we have answered four 
Boston and three Dedham calls. 

The Department has traveled 727 miles, laid 16,500 feet of 
hose, 15,000 feet of chemical hose, raised 4,000 feet of lad- 
ders, used 5,700 gallons of chemicals. At 51 fires we have 
used the chemical engine only. 

The following table shows property losses, etc. : 


Total, $163,400 $19,895 $101,400 

We have extended the fire alarm system, have replaced 
five miles of wire, have purchased and put up seven miles of 
new wire, put in a tapper system for call men, and purchased 
one new fire alarm box, so that we can have one extra box 
on hand at all times, in case of accident. 

All equipment is in good condition. The fire alarm system 
should be extended every year and some new boxes added 
and the old wire gradually replaced by new. 

The apparatus now consists of three hose wagons, one 





$ 6,590 






hose reel, one chemical engine, one ladder truck, two five 
gallon hand chemical tanks, seven horses, five sets of double 
swinging harness, one single harness, five thousand feet of 
good hose, two thousand five hundred feet of poor hose, 
one Eastman deluge set, a storage battery, forty-four fire- 
alarm boxes, forty call bells on tapper system, thirty-five 
miles of wire and ten single beds complete, all in good con- 

The work of the Department for the past year has been 
very gratifying to the Board of Engineers, ninety-six per 
cent, of the men have answered all alarms for the year, show- 
ing the great interest they take in the work. 

The Board of Engineers wish to thank the Department for 
the prompt and faithful work for the past year, to the Police 
Department for their assistance and to the citizens for their 
many kind words. 

The Department now consists of Chief Engineer, two 
Assistants, five permanent men and thirty-four call men, 
making a total of forty-four members.

The present police force assigned to regular duty consists 
of fifteen men, namely a Chief, Lieutenant, eight night men 
and five Sunday men. The number of Patrolmen is inade- 
quate to meet the requirements of this part of the Police Ser- 
vice. Two routes at least, covered by night officers, are so 
long that a large part of their territory can be covered only 
at great intervals. To relieve this situation two more regu- 
lar men are required and I renew the recommendation of my 
predecessor in this matter. The frequent calls for assistance 
from the police department in cases of accidents present the 
necessity of having a police ambulance with red cross equip- 
ments. The large number of men now employed within our 
town render the number of these calls to be on the increase 
rather than otherwise. The number of female arrests and 
oftentimes unsightly scenes in connection therewith also 


suggests the need of such a vehicle for patrol duty. I there- 
fore recommend installation of combination ambulance and 
patrol wagon. At a recent town meeting provisions were 
made for alterations in the Police Station. 

I wish to make clear the necessity of these changes. At 
present there is but one cell room, containing but four cells. 
In the first place a separate room for female prisoners is 
imperative for obvious reasons. Secondly the large number 
of persons now being detained requires, however crude, in- 
stallation of sanitaries, and a padded cell for the insane. 
Lastly, the office should be on the ground floor where all 
persons detained can be immediately brought to the atten- 
tion of the officer in charge, for the purpose of future identi- 
fication, etc., and he be in possession of a single key to the 
cells instead of each officer ^having one as at present. In 
conclusion, gentlemen, I desire to thank you for your uni- 
form courtesy and confidence and also acknowledge the 
efficiency and support of the members of this department. 
Respectfully submitted, 


Chief of Police.

Report of the Park Commissioners. 

One of our members, Frank B. Rich, elected Park Com- 
missioner in 1902, was, at the last town meeting for the elec- 
tion of officers, made a member of the Board of Selectmen 
and understanding that he could not legally hold both offices, 
resigned from the Park Board March 8, 1904. 

As required by Chapter 336 of the Acts and Resolves of 
the General Court in the year 1891, notice was immediately 
given by the two remaining members of the board to the 
Board of Selectmen that there was a vacancy in our board 
and that we were ready to meet with them in joint session 
to fill the vacancy for the unexpired term. 

The' joint session was held March 21, 1904, and Stillman 
E. Newell was chosen as the third member of the Park 

This board has always had and expressed a lively interest 
in the purification of the Neponset River and in our Ninth 
Annual Report quoted Sections 1 and 2 and mentioned num- 
ber 3, Chapter 541, of an act approved June 28, 1902. Under 
this act the State Board of Health has during the past year 
given notice to the authorities of the town of Norwood and 
the owners of the tannery in that town to discontinue the 
discharge of unpurified sewerage and waste into the river 
after July 1, 1905. This is not only a very important but a 
very difficult matter to accomplish and necessarily required 
a very careful study. Although the odor from the stream 
during some of the warm days last summer was quite marked, 
we know that many of the small discharges of foul matter 
into the stream were cut off. 


March 30, 1904, the town voted as follows: 

That the land set forth in Article 26 be used as a public 
play-ground, and that the said land be placed under the con- 
trol of the Park Commissioners for such purposes, and that 
the Park Commissioners be directed to lay out the same as 
a public play-ground, and that the cost of the same be paid 
from funds now accredited to said Park Commissioners. 

This land belonging to the town comprised about six acres 
at the head of Sunnyside street. The ground was quite 
rough and largely hard pan, making it expensive to grade and 
no use whatever as a play-ground without grading. It was 
generally understood that the sum of seven hundred dollars 
would pay for grading the lot and this was based on a plan 
showing a field laid off in thirty feet squares of one hundred 
and eighty feet wide by three hundred and sixty feet long. The 
plan was made and handed to the commission to work upon 
by players of base ball, who were responsible for getting the 
vote passed. Under competitive bids, the work was awarded 
to an outside contractor who employed our townsmen in do- 
ing nearly all the work, and it was only when the work was 
nearly done that the size of the field was questioned, and the 
commissioners, none of whom were ball players, learned that 
one hundred and eighty by three hundred and sixty feet was 
the standard size of a foot ball field, but not large enough for 
the game of base ball. Having expended a sum equal to the 
generally understood cost and with very little interest shown 
in the matter by the young men and finding that to fit the 
ground for football by clearing up the surface and loaming 
and sowing grass would largely increase the expenditure, 
even with the mandatory vote passed, the commissioners de- 
cided to expend no more upon it without further instruction 
from the town. 

The amount expended has been: For Engineering, $25.00; 
Grading, $700.00. 


Doubtless the mover and advocate of this vote had been 
led to believe that the town lot was suitable and could be 
graded for about the sum of seven hundred dollars to make 
a good and sufficient ball ground, when in fact the balance 
of the appropriation on which the Park Commission could 
draw would not have sufficed by a considerable amount to 
properly grade and finish a base ball ground. The ground 
as graded would make a fine site for a hospital or other 
building for benevolent purposes. 

Camp Meigs. In 1893 an appropriation of sixty dollars 
was made for the purchase of shrubbery for Camp Meigs. 
During that year those living near cared for and watered the 
plants at a great inconvenience, and the Hyde Park Water 
Company, having agreed to furnish the water for them with- 
out charge, an appropriation was made by the Board of one 
hundred dollars for the purchase of pipe and hose and for 
cleaning up the paths, trimming the grass, and small rustic 
seats. Of this appropriation the sum of $75.61 has been ex-

Report of Cemetery Commissioners.

Report of Overseers of the Poor. 

The Overseers of the Poor herewith respectfully submit 
their thirty-seventh annual report. 

The death of Mr. Charles Lewis, for many years chairman 
of the Board of Overseers, occurred at his home on the fifth 
day of November last, after an illness extending over a pe- 
riod of nearly a year. Kind and considerate, of sterling in- 
tegrity, he had won the respect and esteem of his associates 
and the community at large. 

In comparing the work of the Overseers of the Poor for 
one year with that of another we find very little change, ex- 
cept in amounts expended, with very nearly the same lists of 
names. By reason of change in law in relation to care of 
pauper-insane, the expenses of the department are consider- 
ably reduced. All inmates of institutions other than asylums 
for the insane, are maintained as a direct charge to the town. 

The falling off in the number of tramps lodged at the 
lockup, as compared with that of last year, is most notice- 
able. The police report 760 persons were lodged during the 
year, while the record of the previous year was 3,198. This 
great change is due solely to the action of the police, who 
have adopted the plan of weeding out the professional 
tramps and putting them into court as vagrants. 

In consideration of the fact that there is due the town 
from the State, cities and towns a sum amounting in round 
numbers to $850, which sum will be collected during the en- 
suing year, it is estimated that an appropriation of $7,300 
will be sufficient to meet the expenses of the department. 



Whole number of persons aided (including tramps lodged) 1,108 

Number of persons fully supported 27 

Number of persons partially supported 321 

Number of tramps lodged at lockup 760

Hyde Park, Mass., Jan. 31, 1905. 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

Gentlemen: The Inspector of Buildings submits the fol- 
lowing report for the year ending Jan. 31, 1905.

I have submitted my annual report to Joseph E. Shaw, 
Chief of District Police, State House, Boston, Mass. 



Inspector of Buildings. 


To the Citizens of Hyde Park: 

We have the honor to present to you the following report 
of the work of this Board for the year ending January 31, 


There has been reported to the Board during the year 
ending December 31, 1904, 129 cases of contagious disease, 
divided by months as follows: 

Diphtheria. Scarlet fever. Measles, Typhoid fever. 



































Totals, 12 21 93 3 

This table shows a marked decrease in the number of cases 
of scarlet fever and typhoid fever over the corresponding 
report of last year. There were no deaths from diphtheria, 
measles or typhoid fever, and one only from scarlet fever. 
There were 93 cases of measles reported to the Board as 
against 3 the year previous. The total number of cases of 
contagious disease reported to the Board was 3 less than 


last year, and 215 less than two years ago. Considering the 
increase in population in the town this is a favorable record. 

The number of diphtheria cases was less than previous 
years and there were no deaths. We cannot speak too highly 
of the benefits of diphtheria anti-toxin; an early diagnosis 
and prompt use are needed. It is indeed a blessing. 

On January 3, 1905, a case of small-pox was discovered in 
a boarding house on Waterloo Street in the Readville Dis- 
trict. Living in the house at the time were 9 men, 2 women, 
and 2 children. The men were employees of the Sturtevant 
Blower Works. The house was immediately placed in quar- 
antine and police officer stationed near to guard the house 
night and day. 

The Board consulted with Dr. T. B. Shea of the Boston 
Board of Health, and arrangements were made to take the 
patient to a contagious hospital in Boston. Next morning, 
January 4, an ambulance from Boston removed said patient 
from Hyde Park. 

The other people in the house were vaccinated and provi- 
sions and medical attendance supplied by this Board while 
the quarantine was in force. Many of the employees of the 
foundry where this man had been working were also vacci- 

Upon investigation it was found that this man with a friend 
had arrived in Boston on the steamship Cymric December 
14, 1904, and they had both been exposed while on board to 
this disease. 

This Board was notified by the Boston Board of Health, 
that five other persons were passengers on the same boat, 
and were at that time in Hyde Park. We immediately 
looked these people up and they were given a thorough 
examination by the physicians of the Board. 

On January 11, another case broke out at the quarantined 
house 14 Waterloo Street. This proved to be the man who 
came over on the Cymric with the first case. This second 


patient was removed to Galloupe's Island by the Boston 
Board of Health, the town thereby saving much expense. 

We are pleased to say that these two cases were all we .had 
and after two more weeks of quarantine (making three in 
all) the people were released from 14 Waterloo Street. One 
of the children in this house was a pupil of the Damon 
School. The Damon School was therefore thoroughly fumi- 

The Board strongly requests that all cases of consumption 
where death takes place or the person so afflicted moves 
from one house to another that this Board be notified of the 
same and that it be allowed to disinfect the premises because 
it believes such a step is one of prevention and in the right 
direction. Statistics show that the ravages of consumption 
have been greatly diminished the last few years by cleaner 
and better ventilated dwellings. Prevent the spread of con- 
tagion if possible. 

This Board is connected with the Mass. Association of 
Boards of Health, which is of much advantage in keeping its 
members in touch with all duties pertaining to a Board of 
Health and thereby in the front rank of sanitary advance- 


We still request that all complaints to the Board be made 
in writing and signed. The complainants are not divulged. 
The knowledge of any matter requiring the Board's attention 
should be immediately made known to it, that such matter 
may be attended to at once. 


The number of connections with the public sewer are 
about the same as last year. The Board strongly recom- 
mends that sewers be built in Reddy Avenue and Rosa 
Street and in the Holmfield and Readville Districts. In most 


of this territory the ground is not suitable for the mainte- 
nance of proper cesspools and is a constant source of com- 
plaint from overflowing cesspools. 


The Board after having many complaints from the Stony 
Brook Water Shed in the Clarendon Hills District, and hav- 
ing duly investigated the same deems it advisable that some- 
thing be done to relieve the existing conditions in that 

The first two months of this year the collection of ashes 
and swill was under the supervision of this Board, but at the 
last appropriation meeting March 30, the Board of Selectmen 
was given the care of this work and since the above date has 
been under the control of this Board. 

CHAS. F. STACK, Chairman, 
WM. W. SCOTT, Secretary, 

Report of Inspector of Plumbing and Health Officer. 

To Dr. C. F. Stack, Chairman, and Members of the Board of 
Health, Town of Hyde Park: 

Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit to you my first 
annual report, which is also the eighth from this office for 
the year ending January 31, 1905. 

There have been filed at this office 161 applications to do 
plumbing work, with plans and specifications calling for the 
following fixtures : Water-closets, 193 ; wash-bowls, 92 ; bath- 
tubs, JJ; wash-trays, 76; sinks, 108; urinals, 7. 

There have been filed in this office 86 applications to con- 
nect with the public sewer. 

Since assuming the duties of Plumbing Inspector, after 
receiving my appointment from you on August 22, 1904, I 
have made jy inspections of new plumbing work and in only 
one or two cases was it found necessary to order any 
changes. The relations existing between the Master Plumb- 
ers and this office are most cordial. 

There have been 15 cards posted for contagious disease, 
fumigated 65 rooms, including the Damon School, .and used 
for this work 52 quarts of formaldehyde. 

I have received and investigated 25 complaints, making 
56 calls in looking up these complaints, as in many cases the 
trouble could not be located without going several times. 

I have received quite a number of anonymous letters of 
complaint, but would state that no notice is taken of such 
letters. I would recommend to the public that all complaints 
be made in writing and the complainant's name signed to 
same. You may rest assured that all such communications 
will be held as strictly confidential. 

Inspector of Plumbing and Health Officer. 


To the Honorable Board of Selectmen:. 

Gentlemen: I herewith submit the report of the Tree 
Warden for the year ending Jan. 31, 1905. Early in the 
spring I commenced to give the trees in the town a thorough 
trimming and had gone over about one-quarter of t,he town 
when I was informed that there was no more money avail- 
able, so I ceased work. Permission has been given to 
remove trees on West and Webster Streets. There is much 
trimming yet to be done in some parts of the town and I 
would recommend that the sum of Three Hundred Dollars 
be appropriated for the care and maintenance of trees. 

Respectfully submitted, 


Tree Warden.

To the Citizens of Hyde Park: 

The number of pupils graduating from the High School 
last June was thirty-one and the number of pupils entering 
last fall was one hundred fifty-seven. It was so evident to 
the School Committee that the entering class would be larger 
than usual that a new teacher was engaged, and a new room 
furnished before the opening of the fall term. 

The increase in the number of the grammar school pupils 
required an addition of one to the teaching force. 

The opening of new rooms means an increase in the 
expenditures for coal and also for supplies. In consequence 
of these extra expenses we were obliged to ask an appro- 
priation of $1,000 for salaries and fuel, which was unani- 
mously voted. That this was not entirely unexpected will be 
observed by a reference to last year's report of the School 
Committee in which we said, referring to the grammar 
schools: "We expect an increase in the number of school 
children and naturally that would require more teachers," 
and in reference to the High School: "The increase may 
require a new teacher in spite of all our attempts at 

Your School Committee is not only willing but anxious 
to co-operate with the other departments in town for an 
economical administration of affairs. At the same time, 
they deem it advisable to appropriate each year sufficient to 
meet the expenditures for that year rather than to carry 
them over to the next year. Economy does not mean post- 
ponement of payment. 


In our estimate of expenditures for the current year we 
have been assisted by the Advisory Committee and the 
estimate hereinafter given is the result of our joint efforts. 

The number of pupils in our schools is larger than ever 
before, and consequently the appropriations will have to be 
larger, though the increase outside of salaries and fuel is 
very moderate. However, we appreciate the fact that a 
careful supervision of expenditures may bring better results 
than large appropriations. 

The patronage of the High School is still on rhe increase. 
A larger proportion of grammar school graduates enter the 
High School than formerly. The number of pupils gradu- 
ating from the grammar schools next June will be about 
eight or ten less than last year, although the entire member- 
ship of our elementary schools has increased. The number 
of pupils entering the High School from St. Raphael's will 
be fully as large, and, possibly, a little larger than last year. 
We, therefore, expect an entering class not quite so large as 
last year, but numbering from 145 to 150. The number in 
the graduating class of the High School is sixty-three. 
Making the usual allowance for decrease in membership in 
the classes already attending the High School, it is apparent 
that there will be a further increase in the number of pupils 
in the High School next year. The enrollment the present 
year is 375, and the enrollment next year will, probably, not 
be less than 400 and is likely to be more. 

From these figures, it is apparent that another room must 
be fitted up with desks and seats; that more seats must be 
put in the Assembly Hall; and that an additional teacher 
must be employed. 

While we expect an increase in the attendance in the 
grammar schools, we do not have any information which 
shows that there should be an additional increase in the 
number of teachers. Of course, it is possible that circum- 


stances may change so that one or more teachers will have 
to be added to the present force. 

All of our public school buildings, with the exception of 
the Damon, are now connected with the sewer. This build- 
ing contains eight rooms, four of which are in use, accommo- 
dating about 170 pupils. It is located near the blower works, 
but while the location is far from ideal and might be 
improved, yet the conditions are not likely to be any worse 
next year than they have been. Doubtless, the land is valu- 
able for business purposes, and it may be advisable for the 
town, if it can get a proper price for the lot, to dispose of it 
and change the location of the school. If no change is to 
occur in the location, the building ought to be repaired and 
connected with the sewer. A committee appointed by the 
town at our last annual town meeting to "report as to 
whether a change in the present location* of the Damon 
School is necessary and if it is, to report as to the best loca- 
tion and the approximate cost of making such change" is 
still outstanding. Consequently, the School Committee do 
not feel it to be their place to recommend any definite propo- 
sition relating to the question. If, however, any consider- 
able amount of money is to be expended on this building, it 
will have to be raised by a separate appropriation for that 
purpose as it is not included in the estimated expenditures 
for the current year. 

The attendance at the evening schools is larger than ever 
before, and it appears to the committee wise to furnish good 
facilities for the education of pupils not able to attend the 
day schools. We, therefore, recommend an increase of $100 
in the appropriation for this purpose. 

For a number of years previous to last year, an appropria- 
tion was made each year for an industrial school. Last year, 
owing to the report of the Advisory Committee, no appro- 
priation was made for that purpose. The chief reason for 
this discontinuance is found in the fact that it adds to the 


tax rate. For the same reasons as were given last year, the 
committee have not included this in their estimate. 

We recommend that the town raise by taxation the pres- 
ent year for current school expenses the sum of $54,700, 
divided as follows: , 

Salaries and fuel $44,800.00 

Incidentals 5,000.00 

Text books and supplies 3,600.00 

Evening schools 1,300.00 


Reckoning the $2,000 appropriated for putting in sani- 
taries at the Greenwood School, but taken from fines paid 
by defendants in criminal cases, this estimate is an increase 
of $500 over the total amount appropriated at the last annual 
town meeting, but is $500 less than was appropriated during 
the last fiscal year for school purposes. 

Many towns in the state appropriate more money per 
pupil, and more per thousand of the assessed valuation than 
Hyde Park, yet the School Committee feel that the citizens 
of our town have always been ready and willing to appropri- 
ate for sc,hool purposes any sum of money that seemed nec- 
essary or reasonable. Our schools in all departments will 
compare favorably with any in the Commonwealth. We 
have made a beginning in manual training, though we have 
no separate department or special teacher. We have done 
away with industrial schools at present, and have sub- 
primaries instead of kindergartens. Yet our sub-primaries 
have the essential elements of a kindergarten and are doing 
excellent work. Our pupils have all the opportunities 
requisite to. fit them for manhood and womanhood. If the 
children have the incentive and the ambition to improve their 
minds and fit themselves to perform the duties sure to fall 
upon their shoulders as citizens of this Republic, our towns- 


people will have no occasion to regret the sacrifices they 
make to educate them all alike. 

On Thursday, Jan. 4, 1905, some individual members of 
the School Committee were informed that a man who a few 
days before was a steerage passenger on the Cymric had 
come down with small-pox in a house on Waterloo Street 
and had been moved to a small-pox hospital on the day 
before. Investigation showed that a girl from the infected 
house had attended the Damon School on the third before 
anyone knew that the house in which she resided was in- 
fected. The school books used by this pupil were at once 
burned, and the Board of Health was requested to fumigate 
the school building, which was done. The committee also 
took every other precaution to avoid the spread of the con- 
tagion. It may be a matter worthy of remark that while 
this unfortunate was being moved to the small-pox hospital, 
two cases against the town to recover damages for the exclu- 
sion of two unvaccinated children were on trial at Dedham. 

In all departments of life and business, the moment one 
problem is settled another is ready to take its place. The 
High School and the Trescott School buildings were erected 
to accommodate the pupils in our prosperous and growing 
town, and before they are one-fourth paid for, other sections 
are in need of thoughtful attention. But Hyde Park has 
always met emergencies in the proper spirit, and doubtless 
will continue to solve such problems as they arise with busi- 
nesslike economy, without running too deeply into debt and 
yet with a healthy spirit of progress, and with a determina- 
tion to furnish the rising generation better opportunities for 
education than any previous generation has had. 

Our public schools were never in better condition than 
they are today. Improvement can still be made in some 
directions, but there are no glaring defects. Perfection in 
any system cannot reasonably be expected, but if "each 
tomorrow finds us further than today," it is all anyone should 


ask in educational matters. Your School Committee is sat- 
isfied that good progress has been made during the past year, 
and that the outlook was never better.

A large share of time and effort during the first two or 
three years of school is devoted to learning to read. If, 
during this time, the learner is so fortunate as to have a 
competent teacher employing the best methods of instruc- 
tion, subsequent progress is rapid and comparatively easy 
with constantly increasing independence and resourcefulness. 
On the other hand, if the teacher is incompetent or the 
method employed is faulty the period of weakness and 
dependence is greatly prolonged and a distaste for school 
reading is acquired which is carried over into all the school 
studies based upon the use of textbooks. The question of 
method in primary reading is, then, of very great import- 

Nine years ago the committee adopted for use in the 
primary schools a "phonic system" of books and manuals 
which have continued in use until the present year. The 
underlying method has many elements of strength, and, in 
competent hands, .has proven very effective. The weakness 
of the system lies in part in a mass of ingenious and some- 
what fantastic teaching devices which, while not an essential 
part of the method, form the most obvious element of the 
system and, in practice, are likely to obscure and weaken its 
really valuable elements. As used by the most successful 
teachers, these devices are subordinated to the essential fea- 
tures, many are omitted or greatly modified and the simpli- 
fied system is adapted in various ways to the teacher's needs. 
But this simplified and useful system is worked out with 
considerable difficulty, is the result of years of patient experi- 
menting, and is not available for new teachers. Another 
serious defect, which is an essential element in the method, is 
the mechanical application of the system to words which can 
be read by the pupil at sight. To prevent sight reading, the 
learner is caused to begin at the close of the sentence and 
pronounce each word, beginning with the last, only after it 


has been marked with diacritical symbols and the mean- 
ingless sounds given in inverse order. 

As compared with the so-called word method which it 
supplanted, this phonic system when employed intelligently 
is vastly superior. But choice is not limited to these ex- 
tremes. The later combined systems as taught in the nor- 
mal schools and widely used by teachers are equally effective 
as a means of teaching reading, entail less strain upon 
teacher and taught, are readily mastered by all the teachers 
now in our primary schools, and are already familiar to most 
new teachers. 

For the reasons outlined above, one of the newer systems 
was recommended after careful observation of the phonic 
system in use. The recommendation has now been adopted 
and the change has been made in the sub-primary and the 
first grade. I am glad to report that there is no resulting 
lack of efficiency in any school, while in most cases there is 
a noticeable advance in the quantity and quality of work 
accomplished during the fall term. 

I wish to renew my recommendation that, when it is neces- 
sary to replace worn-out books, the series of arithmetics in 
use in grades second to fifth, inclusive, be introduced in the 
three higher grades and that the seventh and eighth grades 
be provided with text-books in English grammar in which 
the essentials are emphasized and better illustrative material 
is provided. The language books used in the lower grades 
are very satisfactory. The advanced book is not completed 
in the sixth grade and contains . sufficient material for the 
seventh grade. If the second half of this book is adopted for 
use in the seventh grade as recommended when the series 
was adopted, a brief grammar giving a clear-cut review of 
the essentials of technical grammar should be placed in the 
eighth grade. The complete elementary course would then 
give excellent preparation for the high school work in Eng- 
lish to pupils whose mental development is sufficient to 


enable them to grasp abstract grammatical principles. If it 
is still felt by the committee that more technical grammar 
should be taught in the seventh grade than is provided in 
this plan, the advanced book of a modern language series in 
which grammar is given great prominence would lead to 
better results in the seventh and eighth grades than the 
present course. 

To most pupils below the High School, English grammar 
■is an extremely difficult subject. Indeed, this statement is 
true of High School pupils of average ability and maturity. 
The inadequate English preparation of the entering classes 
of colleges is general and notorious. A part of the difficulty 
is inherent in the subject and is unavoidable. But this neces- 
sary difficulty is aggravated by two marked tendencies in the 
older and in some of the newer textbooks. First, there is an 
elaborate and intricate analysis and classification of the ele- 
ments of the English language, with what seems to the 
pupil whose ability to generalize is limited an endless array 
of disconnected and irrational definitions, rules and excep- 
tions. Second, the laudable purpose of placing before the 
children for analysis the best examples of English prose and 
poetry has led to the introduction of sentences from such 
sources as Browning, Carlyle and Emerson, which are 
obscure and sometimes meaningless to children. The text- 
book in English for use in the seventh and eighth grades 
should present the essentials of grammar clearly and simply 
with an abundance of suitable illustrative material. 

With the changes suggested above, our elementary schools 
will be provided with modern textbooks in reading, arith- 
metic, grammar, geography, and American history. The 
best teachers are least dependent upon the book in teaching, 
but a suitable textbook in any subject provides material 
which must otherwise be written upon the blackboard or 
given to the class in dictation. One of the advantages of free 


textbooks lies in the possibility of the adoption of improved 
books without involving financial loss. 

The qualifications of the teachers is a subject of far greater 
importance than that of the qualities of the books employed 
in teaching. Among the teachers attracted to other towns 
by higher salaries are some whose places it i is exceedingly 
difficult to fill. There is usually a serious element of risk in 
the exchange of experienced and eminently successful teach- 
ers for those relatively unknown and inexperienced. That 
there is, on the whole, no lowering of the standard of excel- 
lence is undeniable. During the past six years, at least, 
there has not been a time when the work of the schools was 
so uniformly excellent as it is during the current school year. 
Some of our best teachers remain after repeated opportuni- 
ties to take positions in other suburban towns with higher 
salaries. It frequently happens that teachers with brief ex- 
perience are well equipped for t,he most exacting positions 
and come to our schools because of the favorable location 
to gain the added experience demanded by the larger towns. 
It is doubtless true that if our best teachers could be paid 
at the highest rates they would remain in our schools for 
much longer periods with great advantage to our educational 
interests. It is equally true that any faithful and well quali- 
fied teacher earns far more than the salaries paid in the most 
favored communities. But it is not true that, because of the 
inadequate salaries, our teachers are incompetent or ineffi- 

The work in drawing and construction has been in charge 
of Miss Florence M. Wood since the resignation of Miss 
Alice T. Boardman at the close of the fall term. Miss Wood 
is a graduate of the Hyde Park High School, Dean Acad- 
emy, and the Massachusetts Normal Art School and .has held 
a scholarship at the Boston Museum Art School. She is 
thoroughly qualified to supervise in this important depart- 


ment of school work which has steadily grown in efficiency 
since its establishment five years ago. 

With the exception of writing! and the making of figures 
in arithmetic, the drawing exercises are the only school 
occupations provided for all the children which call for work 
with the hands. When we consider that under the conditions 
of modern town life most children during their school days 
are deprived entirely of the many home and farm or shop 
occupations which formed an important element in the educa- 
tion of their parents, the meaning and necessity of manual 
work in school is apparent. If the schoolgirl is to be taught 
to sew well she must, in most cases, be taught at school. 
If the boy is to learn to use tools properly he must learn at 
school. And, since sewing is to the girl and the use of tools 
is to the boy as useful and important, at least, as the names 
and location of one-half the rivers, towns, and mountains of 
school geography and one-half the names and dates of school 
.history, the utilitarian argument for hand work in schools is 
sufficiently strong. But the argument from the needs of 
education is far stronger. As a result of the exclusively 
literary education of the schools, in the absence of practical 
home interests and habits of occupation, the graduates of 
our schools have found themselves fitted by preparation and 
interest only for further study along the same lines or for 
clerical positions. Many lines of employment have been 
thus closed to them, their sphere of usefulness is limited, and 
their interests and sources of pleasure in life are circum- 
scribed. It is in view of the unbalanced education im- 
parted by the traditional school subjects, when not supple- 
mented by home occupations, that drawing has become an 
important element of school work, and the industrial appli- 
cation of drawing to design has been emphasized. In all the 
schools designs are applied to construction paper and simple 
objects of use and ornament are constructed. In a few 
cases, color has been applied in the primary grades in the 


making of raffia baskets. In a number of the lower grammar 
grades the pupils have been encouraged to use pocket knives 
and thin pieces of wood from waste boxes in the construc- 
tion of objects in accordance with carefully prepared designs. 
In the primary grades seeds have been germinated and 
plants grown to provide material for drawing lessons. The 
interest and encouragement of parents in these lines of work 
which are designed to give the children a desire for useful 
activity, the ability to perform skilful work with their hands, 
and interest in and respect for hand work and hand workers, 
is general and most highly appreciated. 

No one who has received instruction in music is likely to 
underestimate its value as a means of discipline and a source 
of lasting pleasure. The younger men and women of today 
appreciate as their elders too often do not, the important 
place which music rightly holds in the public schools. In our 
own schools opportunity is given to every child who can dis- 
tinguish pitch, who "has an ear for music," to learn to read 
music and to sing acceptably. A very large proportion actu- 
ally acquire a good elementary education in vocal music. The 
study of music in our schools is so conducted as to form also 
a substantial means of training and education in its broader 
meaning. The work along both lines in this department dur- 
ing the past year has been of excellent quality. 

The continued appreciation of our High School as shown 
by the constantly increasing membership is apparent. Hyde 
Park pupils may receive in this school thorough preparation 
for any college, while the courses are broad enough to pro- 
vide general secondary education of a high order. The 
actual scholastic work of the High School is excellent and 
those elements of moral training which are of even higher 
importance continue to give character to the school and to 
all its departments and activities. 

Your attention is invited to the reports of the Supervisors, 


the Principal of the High School, the Evening School Princi- 
pal, and the Truant Officer, which are appended. 
Respectfully submitted, 





Hyde Park, Jan. 19, 1905. 
Mr. F. O. Draper, Superintendent of Public Schools: 

Dear Sir, — Music today is recognized as an integral part 
of the child's education. As the public school system has 
grown and developed in the United States, musical directors 
and teachers of music have been appointed by the school 
authorities in all our large cities and very many of the larger 
towns. This recognition does not obtain alone in New Eng- 
land, but throughout our land. The teaching of this subject, 
however, is limited in its scope. It is confined to the ele- 
mentary schools, where sight reading and singing are taught. 
As an exercise it is healthful. As a mental discipline it is 
excelled by few studies. By many physicians it is considered 
a safeguard from those diseases that affect the breathing 
organs. It teaches patriotism and tenderness, and inspires 

''Music the fiercest grief can charm, 

And fate's severest rage disarm. 

Music can soften pain to ease, 

And make despair and madness please; 

Our joys below it can improve, 

And antedate the bliss above." ■ 

There is a well defined movement among musical educa- 
tors to establish a course of music in the High Schools. Th^ 
New England Educational League has outlined a tentative 
course which includes the study of the piano, organ, voice, 
or any other instrument of the Symphonic Orchestra, and 
the study of harmony, additional to the one period of choral 
work as at present. Upon inquiry I find that sixty of our 


High School pupils are studying piano, twenty-two the 
violin, four the voice, and a half dozen more other instru- 
ments. T,hus nearly twenty-five per cent, of our High 
School pupils are pursuing musical studies in addition to the 
regular course. Such a condition invites the question: 
Could any credit be allowed the pupils for such study toward 
the completion of their High School course, and would it be 
a wise move to include in the High School the further study 
of music, making it an elective? 

Our schools in town have been doing satisfactory work in 
music. Individuality is encouraged and much enthusiasm 
prevails in nearly all the classes. The teachers have most 
willingly carried out the suggestions of the Supervisor, and 
I believe good work is being accomplished. I would like to 
thank the Superintendent for his cordial support and also 
the Committee for their interest in my department. 
Yours respectfully, 


Supervisor of Music. 


Mr. Frank O. Draper, Superintendent of Schools: 

Dear Sir, — The short time that I have been at work in t,he 
schools hardly makes it possible for me to give any extended 
report of my work or its results, but I can say that I find 
interest and enthusiasm on the part of both pupils and teach- 
ers, and the work in good condition to be carried forward. 

I am devoting my whole time to this town, spending two 
days each week at the High School, and visiting each room 
in the other buildings every two weeks. 
Very respectfully yours, 


Supervisor of Drawing. 


Mr. Frank O. Draper, Superintendent of Schools: 

Dear Sir, — In accordance with your request, I submit 
herewith my sixth annual report of the High School for the 
year 1904. 

The enrollment in December was 375. T,he membership 
was 363. The membership by classes was as follows: 

1st year I5 1 

2d year 9 1 

3d year 54 

4tri year 61 

Post-graduates 6 

Total 363 


Miss Alary E. Houston, teacher of English, resigned in 
June on account of ill health, and during the summer Mr. 
Charles W. French sent in his resignation because of a more 
lucrative offer from New York. To fill these places and to 
supply the necessary teaching force for the increased number 
of pupils the following teachers were chosen: Miss Mabel 
G. Taylor of Wellesley, Mass., Miss Jane L. Kendall of Man- 
chester, Mass., and Mr. Charles W. Amiable of Charlestown, 
Mass. Otherwise we are fortunate in retaining the same 
teachers as last year. If we glance at the list of teachers for 
this year we see that there are three men and ten women. 
The best secondary school authorities believe that there 
should be at least as many men as women teachers, and this 
becomes more urgent as the numbers in the school increase. 
It would seem wise, when it becomes necessary to add to our 
present number, to act in accordance with the above belief. 

Owing to the increased number of pupils a room on the 
third floor was furnished during the summer and opened at 
the beginning of the school year. This room was used for 
two years for the typewriters, as it had better accommoda- 
tions than the regular typewriting room. This makes nine 
regular class rooms. Another will be needed at the begin- 
ning of the next school year. 

In conversing with the parents I have always found them 
in general ready to co-operate, and to do what seemed for 
the best interests and welfare of the schools. When, how- 
ever, any special project is mentioned it is acknowledged to 
be a good move, but there is a reluctance, which for all prac- 
tical purposes is negative, to stand boldly and say I believe 
it is right. This would indicate either a shifting of responsi- 
bility or a fear of leadership. I believe that it is the latter for 
the larger number. There is nothing that would be a greater 
help to our school than better attendance and less so called 
social life. In both of these the parents can do more than 
the teachers as they are really the responsible parties. We 


hear complaints about the financial loss to the town because 
of the "no school" signal, or a "visiting day," but reckon if 
you will the loss when there are some two hundred absences 
in each month of from seventeen to twenty days, forty to 
fifty tardy from five to fifty minutes, and as many dismissed 
losing as much if not more time. And yet we meet here a 
most alarming indifference and lack of parental firmness. If 
each of the parents having children in t)ie school would 
heartily join with the school authorities in a crusade against 
absence, tardiness and dismissal one of the greatest draw- 
backs to class room and school work could easily be re- 
moved. In some places public sentiment supports the 
teacher in refusing to dismiss a pupil. • 

The social problem is everywhere recognized as a serious 
question and one to which much attention is being given. 
T,he home, the church, friends, all have their demands upon 
the young man or woman which must be acknowledged. 
The school cannot, should not receive more than its share. 
How, then, shall the time be divided? The question is met 
in different localities in as many different ways. The ex- 
tremes are where the school makes itself the social as well 
as the educational centre, and where the school refuses to 
accept any responsibility for the social life of its pupils. 
Neither of these extremes answers the question. I believe 
there is a "golden mean" which may be found in the right 
understanding between school and home, and which takes 
into account the ability of the individual pupil. In this 
school we have recognized four social events during the year 
which more or less affect the whole school: Two Prize 
Drills, an Officers' Party, and the Senior Dramatics. This 
does not seem to be excessive, but when you take into 
account the various athletic interests and class socials you 
have a somewhat formidable list if you expect pupils to do 
well in four years the amount of work required of the High 
School. The question needs careful thought and discussion 


in each home, and a sound judgment which will be approved 
by all and put into force. 

In June the class of 1904 presented to the school, to be 
placed in Room 21, three fine pictures: The Automedon or 
Horses of Achilles by Regnault, the Delphic Sibyl by 
Michael Angelo, and a colored print of St. Mark's in Venice. 
The class of 1903 at its last meeting voted to lay aside some- 
thing each year toward tjhe further adornment of Room 22, 
in which they placed their gift last year. It would now be 
appropriate to recognize this action in some way. 

Through the generosity of the Education Society we have 
a good stereopticon. We now need slides, or a fund which 
may be used to hire them. Slides were loaned to us from 
Harvard last spring and we counted on the continuance of 
the privilege t,his year, but their generosity was short lived. 

The Battalion is working well under the revised regula- 
tions adopted in May. It became necessary to form and 
equip a third company at the opening of school. This occa- 
sioned many new questions, but they have been easily solved 
under the new regulations. The town now has no adequate 
facilities for this line of work. It is hoped that the officers 
of the last two battalions will use funds left in their hands 
either for trophy cases or further adornment of the Assembly 

Thanking you, Sir, and the Committee for their support, I 

remain, Respectfully yours, 




Hyde Park, January 23, 1905. 

Frank O. Draper, Esq., Superintendent of Schools, Hyde 
Park, Mass.: 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith the following report of the 
Evening School, for the year beginning October 31, 1904. 

The enrollment, average attendance and average ages in 
the different departments are as follows: 

The enrollment is as follows: 

English Department 174 

Business Department 79 

Drafting Department 45 

Average Attendance: 

English Department 71 

Business Department 44 

Drafting Department 30 

Average Age: 

English Department 21 

Business Department 19 

Drafting Department 23 

I also give below the enrollment and average attendance 
for the three previous years, also the present year, which 
may be interesting for comparison. 

The enrollment is as follows: 

1901-02 173 

1902-03 272 

1903-04 226 

1904-05 298 


Average attendance : 

1901-02 96 

1902-03 96 

1903-04 104 

1904-05 14S 

It will be noticed by glancing at the above figures that the 
enrollment and average attendance are in excess of the 
previous years. 

In the English Department last year we had four teachers 
until about January 1st, and then the attendance dropped so 
that we were able to get along with two. This year we had 
to have five until January 1st, and as the attendance de- 
creased we found we could, by making some changes in the 
classes, get along with four. 

The Business Department has the same teachers as last 
year, and has some exceptionally bright scholars who are 
making splendid progress in their work. 

The Drafting Department is in charge of Mr. Carl King 
of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The work is 
divided into two classes: Mechanical and Machine Drawing. 

The majority of the men who are taking the Mechanical 
drawing are taking it preliminary to Machine drawing and 
the course is designed with this in view. The men, who by 
reason of previous work in drawing are able to cover more 
ground than the average member of the class, are able to do 
this and at the same time keep along with the rest of the 
class in the lecture work. 

The members of the class in Machine drawing are mostly 
machinists and the object of this course is to give them 
something that will be of practical value to them. 

The deportment in the school has been exceptionally good. 
Thanking you for your many helpful suggestions in regard 
to t,he work, I remain, 

Very respectfully, 




Mr. Frank O. Draper, Superintendent of Schools: 

Dear Sir, — Please find below an account of my services as 
Truant Officer for year ending Dec. 31, 1904.

Music by Robert Emerson Davie 
Four short years have passed, dear classmates, 

And 'tis time that we must part; 
Severed are the bonds of union, 

Which have joined each heart to heart. 
Step by step we have proceeded 

Up the hill of work and pain, 
From the foot, where trials gathered, 

To the top, where Honor reigns. 

Now we start on life's broad journey, 

And its varied paths we take; 
But our own beloved High School 

We shall ne'er for aught forsake. 
We may meet, and we may never, 

On our long and rocky way, 
But the friendship we've imparted, 

Shall with us forever stay. 

. Onward, then, through life we'll travel, 

Striving to attain the end, 
Where we meet Queen Glory reigning, 

And her subjects who attend. 
Praise and honor shall await us 

At the throne of Glory fair, 
With the prize that we have taken, 

And the merits that we share. 

Let us bid farewell forever 

To our Alma Mater dear; 
But our love for it shall strengthen, 

And grow firmer year by year. 
Farewell now, beloved classmates, 

Never let our honor lower, 
But bring credit to our High School, 

And the class of Nineteen-four.

Classmates dear as here we gather, 

Ere we bid these scenes adieu, 
Let us join once more our voices 

In a voice to dear old Grew. 
Here since first we sought for knowledge 

Eight long years have sped away, 
And in passing each one brought us 

Near to this parting day. 

And where'er fate casts our fortunes 

Or what paths we may pursue, 
We will ever cherish memories 

Of our teachers good and true. 
And the motto we have chosen 

Keep it ever as our guide, 
In the heart of every classmate 

Let "Integrety" abide. 

2 3 8 

Now has come the time for parting 

From the scenes we love so well, 
Each dear room and pleasant play ground 

We must bid them all farewell. 
Farewell teachers and companions 

With sad hearts we turn from you, 
Other paths of duty call us 

Now Good Bye to dear old Grew.

Hyde Park Public Library

Report of the Trustees of the Public Library. 

The Trustees are happy to be able again to report a year 
of uninterrupted prosperity and usefulness. 

Continuing their policy of placing as many books as pos- 
sible directly before the readers for their selection, instead 
of obliging them to choose by titles from the card catalogue 
or to be guided solely by the advice of the librarians or their 
friends, the Trustees have placed in the Delivery Room an 
additional book-case which will be kept stocked with the 
newer books and those on topics of current interest. They 
recognize the educational influence of the habit of browsing 
among books, and while they have not found it practicable 
to admit readers to the stack-room, they have by constantly 
increasing the number of books on the shelves in the Read- 
ing Rooms and the Delivery Room brought the readers into 
direct contact with a large body of interesting and instruc- 
tive literature. 

In this connection we are glad to say from our own obser- 
vation and the testimony of others that the Library has 
never been frequented by a more orderly and earnest class of 
readers than during the past year. This is due, in part at 
least, to the efficiency of the custodian of the Reading 

The number of books at Readville has been increased and 
an excellent Cyclopaedia of recent date has been placed in 
the Reading Room there. The Library has been most fortu- 
nate in receiving as a gift from Mrs. Mabel Hunt Slater of 
Milton, through Rev. James J. Chittick, a large and beautiful 
oil painting, which has been hung in the entrance hall. It is 
a copy of the picture at Rome by Leonardi representing 


Guido Reni painting the celebrated portrait of Beatrice 
Cenci in her cell while awaiting execution. * 

There have also been placed in the entrance hall two sec- 
tions of Thorwaldsen's bas-relief representing the triumphal 
entrance of Alexander into Babylon. 

The Trustees have had under consideration various sug- 
gestions for improving the Library service without having 
yet reached definite conclusions in all cases. For the details 
of the increased circulation and other statistics we refer you 
to the Librarian's report which follows. 
For the Trustees, 




To the Board of Trustees of the Hyde Park Public Library: 

Gentlemen, — I herewith present the report of the Library 
for the year ending January 31, 1905. 

The Library has been open 304 days. The circulation at 
the Central Library has been 67,907, an increase of 1,009 over 
that of 1903. The circulation at the Branch Library in Read- 
ville has been 2,300, making the total circulation 70,207, an 
increase of 2,147 over that of 1903. 

It is gratifying to note that more people are availing them- 
selves of the privilege of taking the current magazines for 
three days, the number of magazines issued having been 
3,250 over against 2,907 in 1903. 

Several times during the year we issued for home use over 
500 books in one day, reaching the maximum on March 19, 
when 578 books were issued, the largest number ever given 
out in one day. The net increase in number of borrowers at 
the Central Library is 434. 

We are pleased to notice an increasing use of reference 
books. There has never been a more earnest, intelligent use 
of reference books among the young people than has been 
manifest during the fall and winter. 

The Electrical World, Garden Magazine, Craftsman and 
Magazine of Art have been added to our list of periodicals 
for 1905. 

Among the most notable books purchased during the year 
are Hastings' Dictionary of tjie Bible, v. 5; Grangers Index 
to poetry and recitations; the completing volume of Cham- 
ber's Encyclopaedia of English literature; New International 
Encyclopaedia and Encyclopaedia Americana. 

Through the Library Art Club the following collections of 
pictures have been exhibited: English country churches; 
English country houses; German festoons; Nuremberg; 
Holland; Elson prints; Italian art, No. 1; Italian art, No. 2; 
Daughters of the revolution; Munich, and Birds. 

The new book cases in the Delivery Room afford people 
a better chance to select books for themselves. Gratification 
has been expressed at seeing works of standard fiction which 
have been placed in one of the new. cases. 

The circulation in the young people's department is not 
quite equal to that of 1903, but the work offers much en- 
couragement. There is an increasing use of works of travel, 
nature, biography and other classes of non fiction so well 
written for young people. One child who came to the 
Library for a "good book," when shown a story said: "I 
don't want a story, I want books about history, birds, ani- 
mals and things." The first book asked for by a Russian boy 
was a history of the United States. 

Lists of new and interesting books, holiday and festal day 
lists have been posted. There has been a net gain of 160 
registrations in this department. 

As heretofore, thanks are due to those who send periodi- 
cals for use in tjhe reading room, and to the local papers 


through whose columns notices and lists of books have been

Board of Sewer Commissioners 


DECEMBER 31, 1904 


F. P. McGregor, Printer 





GEO. A. SMITH '. Engineer 


To the Citizens of Hyde Park: 

Your Board of Sewer Commissioners beg to submit the 
following report of work done by this department from Jan. 
31 to Dec. 31, 1904. 

The organization of the department remains the same as 
last year, as shown on preceding page. 

Under the supervision of your Board there has been 
expended, to Dec. 31, 1904, the sum of $9,357.27 as per 
vouchers on file and exhibited in table No. 1 annexed to this 

Sewer assessments have been computed and bills amount- 
ing to $5,337.64 have been duly rendered upon the comple- 
tion of sewer in each street. 

The value of stock on hand is $1,618.54, as shown in table 
No. 2 annexed to this report. 

Your Board reports the construction of 3.957 lineal feet 
of sewer in 1904. The details of such construction are shown 
in the following table :

Total, 3956-9 feet. 

Equals, .75 miles 

Previously reported, '7-93 miles. 

Total length of Sewers constructed to date, 18.68 miles. 

All sewers were built on petition of abutters after due con- 
sideration by this Board. Connections were made with same 
in each instance upon completion of sewer. 

The cost of maintenance for 1904 has been very light, 
amounting to $90.94. This sum was expended in changing 
manhole covers in Readville Street and for flushing. 

Except for a partial stoppage in Business Street there has 
been no trouble from deposits in the sewers. 

Sewer assessment record plans and profiles are completed 
to date. 

Surveys and studies have been made for the Holmfield, 
Clarendon Hills and Stony Brook areas and construction 
plans completed for a portion of the Holmfield area. It was 
the intention of this Board to let contracts for a considerable 
portion of this work the coming season. 

The construction of the Clarendon Hills and Stony Brook 
trunk sewer will involve the most difficult engineering prob- 
lem that has been encountered in the Hyde Park sewerage 
systom; requiring a large size pipe on an extremely flat 
grade, crossing Stony Brook some half a dozen times. A 
portion of the line is through soft ground where foundation 
will have to be constructed of timber or concrete or both. 
One section of about 300 feet will have to be laid on a pile 

While nothing definite had been decided it is probable 
that the route of this trunk sewer would have been laid out 
as follows: Beginning at the Metropolitan sewer near Brad- 

2 93 

lee Street and running to Bradlee Street; thence on Bradlee 
Street about 306 feet; thence at right angles across private 
land to Huntington Avenue; thence on Huntington Avenue 
to "Madison Street"; thence on "Madison Street" to Hyde 
Park Avenue ; thence on Hyde Park Avenue to Metropolitan 
Avenue with a 24-inch pipe; thence with a 20-inch pipe 
through Metropolitan Avenue and Providence Street to a 
point south of where Stony Brook crosses the Providence 
Division of the N. Y., N. H. and H. R. R.; from there a 
12-inch pipe to West Street; thence by a line south of West 
Street to Summer Street; thence through Summer and West 
Streets to Austin Street; thence through Austin Street to 
drain the low portions of the Sunnyside district. This 
12-inch pipe is estimated to drain the Sunnyside district until 
such time as the Stony Brook line is constructed, when the 
flow can, if deemed advisable, be diverted through that line. 
In the spring of 1904 the following Act was passed by the 
Massachusetts Legislature: 

Chapter 339. An Act to abolish the Board of Sewer Commissioners 
of the Town of Hyde Park. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Section 1, The Board of Sewer Commissioners of the Town of 
Hyde Park is hereby abolished and the powers and duties now per- 
taining to that board shall hereafter pertain to the selectmen of the 

Sec. 2. No contracts, rights, liabilities, takings, assessments, suits 
or other business now existing or pending shall be affected by this 
Act, but the selectmen shall in all respects and for all purposes be 
the lawful successors of the said Board of Sewer Commissioners. 

Sec. 3. This Act shall take effect upon its acceptance by the voters 
of the said town voting thereon at a legal meeting called for the 
purpose. The vote shall be by ballot, and the check list shall be 

Approved May 13, 1904. 

Article 3 of the warrant for the Town Meeting held Dec. 
28, 1904, reads as follows: 


To see if the town will vote to accept the provisions of Chapter 
339 of the Acts and Resolves passed by the Legislature of Massa- 
chusetts during the session of 1904. 

This Act is entitled 'An Act to Abolish the Board of Sewer Com- 
missioners of the Town of Hyde Park." If adopted by the town the 
powers and duties now pertaining to that board shall hereafter per- 
tain to the selectmen of the town. 

This article was voted on and decided in the affirmative, 
thereby abolishing this Board. 

Eighty-six house connections were made during the eleven 
months ending Dec. 31, 1904, with an aggregate length of 
4,789 feet. Total number to date, 799; total length, 40,537 
feet or 'j.'j miles. 

The work has been under the direct supervision of this 
Board, as heretofore, at an average cost of about sixty cents 
per foot. 

The following data may be of interest as no information 
of a like nature has heretofore been published. While many 
of the figures given are based on estimates, they are reason- 
ably accurate.

ings within sewered territory by districts:

for cause, after due notice and hearing, upon charges previously filed 
with them. Whenever said inspector of buildings is temporarily un-

inspector of buildings pro tempore, who shall act as such inspector 
while such inability continues. He shall keep a record of the business

cient. A copy of the plans and specifications of every public build- 
ing shall be deposited with the inspector. 

2. — Every person intending to build or make any alteration in the

floor or to a height of fifteen feet above such ovens, ranges, furnaces 
or heaters, and the inspector shall determine what constitutes such, 

4. — In no case shall chimneys rest upon any flooring without a 
footing of masonry or iron supported by iron beams, having a secure 
bearing of masonry or iron at either end, or be more than four inches 
out of centre of gravity unless the same be attached to a brick wall. 

5. — All flues shall be topped out at least four feet above the roof of 
the building to which they belong. The brick topping out of chim-

inch from any tin or other metal flue or flues, pipe or pipes, used or 
intended to be used to convey heated air or steam in any building, 
unless such flues or pipes shall be cased with metal, leaving a free 
circulation of air all around the same. 


I0- — No smoke pipe in any wooden or frame building shall here- 
after enter any flue unless the said pipe shall be at least twelve 
inches from either the floors or ceiling; and in all cases where smoke 
pipes pass through stud or wooden partitions of any kind whether 
the same be plastered or not, they shall be guarded by either a 
double collar of metal, with at least four inches of air space and 
holes for ventilation or by a soap stone or plaster of paris ring, not 
less than three inches in thickness and extending through the par- 

II. — All frames shall be built with posts, plates and girts, properly 
mortised, tenoned, braced and pinned and supported by suitable 
studding, the posts and girts to be not less than four inches by six 
inches or equivalent thereto, provided however that ledger boards 
may be used in place of girts if the spaces back of the same, between 
the studding be filled with joist in such manner as to prevent draft 
in case of fire. 

12. — The Inspector of Buildings shall examine all shops and other 
places where shavings or other combustible material may be de- 
posited or collected, and at all times be vigilant in the removal of 
the same, whenever in his opinion the same may be dangerous to the 
security of the town from fires; and direct the owner, tenant or oc- 
cupant of said shops, or other places, to remove the same; and in 
case such owner, tenant or occupant refuses or neglects so to do, 
shall cause the same to be removed at the expense of such owner, 
tenant or occupant. 

13. — It shall also be the duty of said inspector to take cognizance 
of all buildings in the town in which any steam engine shall be used, 
and to examine all buildings in town in process of erection or alter- 
ation and all buildings under application to raise, enlarge, alter, or 
build upon and for that purpose shall have the right of entry thereto, 
and to make a record of the same and of all violations of these 
building laws, and of such buildings as in his judgment may from 
any cause be dangerous, and report any dangerous building to the 
selectmen forthwith, together with the location of the building where 
such violations are found and the name of the owner, lessee, occu- 
pants, architect and master mechanic and all other matters relating 
thereto. These records shall at all times be open to the inspection 
of the engineers of the fire department or selectmen of the town. 

14. — Any alterations or additions to any building already erected 
or hereafter to be built, except necessary repairs not affecting the 
construction of the external or party walls, chimneys or stairways, 


shall to the extent of such work, be subject to the regulations of 
these By-Laws. No building already erected or hereafter built shall 
be raised or built up in such manner that were such building wholly 
built or constructed after the passage of these By-Laws it would be 
in violation of any provision thereof. 

15. — No building the exterior walls of which are in part or wholly

pair or rebuild any building within said limits, which has been par- 
tially destroyed by fire or otherwise, without the written permit of 
the Board of Selectmen.

ground to the highest part thereof, or which shall exceed five hun- 
dred superficial feet in area, shall be made to any wooden building 
within said limits, without permission from the selectmen after a 
hearing of which public notice shall be given; provided, however,

repairs upon any wooden or frame building: already built, if the 
height of said building be not thereby increased; and a flat roof, cov- 


ered with metal or other non-combustible material, may be substi

Louis A. Cook Clerk. 

Auditor's Report. 

We have examined the vouchers and accounts of the 
following: Selectmen, Treasurer, Treasurer Pro Tern, Tax 
Collector, School Committee, Overseers of the Poor, Trus- 
tees of the Public Library, Board of Health, Sewer Com- 
missioners and Cemetery Commissioners for the year ending 
January 31, 1905, and find the same to be correct. 

The accounts of our former Tax Collector, George San- 
ford, deceased, have been closed by George R. Lovering, 
Collector Pro Tern, and we find same to be correct. 

We are in accord with the suggestion made by the Audit- 
ors of last year with respect to the following, which we 
quote in full: "We believe that the best interests of the 
town demand that the citizens keep close scrutiny upon 
appropriations and expenditures. We believe that the most 
feasible way to do this is through preferably one Auditor 
who shall audit all bills before payment and keep a balance 
sheet showing the condition of the various appropriations at 
all times during the year. We suggest, therefore, that the 
citizens consider the advisability of making a change in the 
Town By-laws, whereby it shall be obligatory upon all the 
various departments of the town to submit all bills and 
orders to an Auditor for his approval if correct, after an 
approval by the department making the expenditure, and 
before payment by the Town Treasurer. We appreciate 
that the system advocated would make very considerable 
demands upon such an Auditor's time, adding, as it would, 
to the already large amount of work devolving upon three 
Auditors, the additional duties suggested. We believe, how- 
ever, that the town would be the gainer thereby and that the 
change would effect a decided advance in the auditing of 
town accounts." 


The benefits which would accrue to the town from the adoption 
of the foregoing suggestion are two. In the first place, there will 
have been instituted a more complete system of auditing, in that 
accounts will be audited before, as well as after, payment. And, 
in the second place, the full responsibility for all town finances 
would then rest upon one man, the Auditor, instead of it being 
spread over several, men or departments. 

We feel that the By-law suggested might well require such an 
Auditor to draw off a trial balance at least monthly, and submit 
the same to the various Boards, having the custody and 
expenditure of town funds, for their inspection. 
Respectfully submitted, 


Auditors of Hyde Park.
