SELECTMEN'S REPORT. 



The Fifth Annual Report is herewith presented. It in- 
cludes, with some general statements, the receipts and ex- 
penditures for the financial year ending January 15, 1873. 
Among the payments made are several that are extra, and 
worthy of special notice, to wit : that of rebuilding the bridge 
over the river on Bridge street, ^400. Widening the cause- 
way and building a new bridge at the mill pond of the Smith- 
field Manufacturing Company, ^800. Insurance of the new 
school house, ^500. Re-insurance of the Town Hall, which 
was understood to be for five years, but proved to be for but 
three, $S7S- The heavy expense incurred in prevention of the 
spread of small-pox, $700. The expense of investigating the 
question of water supply, ^339.60. Bill of Gardner Chilson, 
for furnaces for the Grew School, and alteration of the same, 
^1,041.50. The cost of grading Albion street, $500. Two 
horses, two new carts and harnesses, ^879. Other amounts 
might be added to these whereby the estimated expenses 
have been exceeded by unlooked-for causes. 

HIGHWAYS. 

Much of the work done upon the streets during the year 
has been effected by men in the direct employ of the town. 
Two new horses and two carts and harnesses, with suitable 
tools, were added to the old stock, making a force large enough 
for all general highway purposes. Owing to the frequent 
heavy rains, great damage was done cm the steep hill-side 
streets, which caused much trouble and expense. Gutters 
have been made and paved in Thompson, Sunnyside and Mt. 



6 

Pleasant streets, and that on Fairmount avenue was repaved. 
The care of streets in steep localities is greatly increased by 
the rapid flow of surface water. It seems inevitable that at 
no distant day large sewers will need to be constructed through 
some of these streets. The contract for making Albion street 
^ was taken by D, W. Phipps, for five hundred ($500) dollars, 
and the work was done in a thorough manner. No appropri- 
ation was made for this street, and it was paid' for out of the 
general highway appropriation. Business street, reported un- 
finished last year, has been completed. Owing to an illegality 
in the laying out of this street it has been relaid and accepted 
by the town. 

In the report of last year attention was called to the con- 
templated alterations in River street, by the County Commis- 
sioners, who proposed to establish a uniform width and fixed 
boundaries. Some of the reasons for this action are, that 
although the lines have been defined and bounds fixed at 
various periods, the abuttors have failed to comply with them. 
Deeds have been given with lines in the street, and in one 
instance a fence was built across the sidewalk, entirely cutting 
off the use of the same by the public. 

At this time the Commissioners were appealed to, who 
stated that they would receive a petition signed by responsi- 
ble parties, and they would meet with them and re-locate the 
street. With this view the Board with others petitioned that 
the case might be taken up, which was done, and the result 
embodied in a decree for the widening and locating of the 
street, with payment by the County of ^4,000 towards the 
land damages, with the cost of survey and plan. It will read- 
ily be seen that every year adds to the difficulty and expense 
with which the whole subject is attended. It is thought that 
this improvement will commend itself to the judgment of all 
when once it is understood and carried out. • 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The lot of land for the Engine House has been paid for, 
also the small piece lying in front of the same, necessary Jo 
secure the right of way to this lot. 



The Department is in good working order, and compares 
favorably with those of other towns. It rendered good ser- 
vice during the great fire in Boston, Nov. 9th, 1872, No. i 
Engine playing without intermission for hours, with a steady 
stroke, and without breaking down, as some did. Quite an 
amount of hose was lost at this fire, but there is still remain- 
ing over 2,100 feet in good order. No claim has been made 
upon the City of Boston for use of or damage to engine and 
hose, the Boards of Selectmen and Engineers feeling that 
what assistance the Department had rendered was but a re- 
turn in part for similar service, always cheerfully afforded 
whenever the town has had the misfortune to need aid from* 
abroad. The new hose purchased this year, added to what 
was then on hand, made an amount sufficient to reach ample 
supplies of water in many localities, and was thought to ob- 
viate the necessity of constructing a cistern which, at best, 
would contain but a limited quantity. Most of the linen hose 
is nearly worthless, and should be replaced by leathern, or 
such as is more durable. The pair of horses purchased in the 
spring are fitted with harnesses adapted to the fire engines, 
and a man in the employ of the town has charge of them, and 
is at all times ready to attach them to one of the engines, 
while an engagement has been made with R. Corson to draw 
the other, which is promptly attended to in case of an alarm 
of fire. . 

MILITIA. 

The amount paid for rent of armory, and also for services 
of Co. C, I St Battalion Infantry, at the Boston fire, is to be 
repaid by the State to the Treasurer, and will appear in the 
report of next year. 

This company has been disbanded and needs no further ac- 
commodations. 

POOR ACCOUNT. 

The expenses of this Department have been larger than 
ever before. The presence of small-pox has caused an extra 



8 

outlay of about ^700, included in which is the cost of building 
a hospital for such cases. By the exercise of a vigilant watch- 
fulness the ravages of this disease have been effectually 
checked, but few cases having occurred in the course of the 
year. 

There is an increase in the number of those who, belonging 
to the care of the State, are left temporarily in charge of the 
town until finally sent to the institutions provided for that 
purpose. The allowance for support of these persons is small, 
and this and other reasons have suggested a question of the 
expediency of providing a house for the reception of such 
•cases. Numerous travellers apply daily for food and lodging, 
some seeking employment ; and, failing to obtain it, doubtless 
resort to unlawful means to supply their wants, all causing a 
large bill of expense and care on the part of those having 
charge of this Department, The whole subject deserves care- 
ful consideration.

ASSESSORS' REPORT. 



The amount voted to be raised for 1872, for State, County 
and Town tax, was ^83,100, and the amount added for over- 
layings was $3,834, making a total of $86,934. This sum 
being in excess of nearly $25,000 from the amount raised the 
previous year, was met by increasing the rate to $11.40 per 
thousand, and by an increase of valuation, and also by finding 
quite an amount of new property, the total valuation of the 
town being $7,329,527, which is a gain of $1,373,602 over the 
previous year. 

The increasing value of land in the town from year to year, 
'the new buildings, the opening of new streets, the sale and 
transfer of real estate, have caused especially the present year 
a very careful and personal inspection of each estate in the 
town, making the duties of the Board of Assessors quite 
arduous, which we feel should not be combined with the duties 
of the Overseers of the Poor and the Board of Health.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF ENGI- 
NEERS OF THE HYDE PARK FIRE 
DEPARTMENT. 



In accordance with the usual custom, we herewith submit 
our annual report for the year ending January 15th, 1873 : — 

The apparatus in active service is the same as reported 
last year. 

There has been purchased during the year one thousand 
feet of new leather leading hose, most of which is in service, 
together with the best of the old hose, which is in fair condi- 
tion. One thousand feet more should be purchased the com- 
ing year. 

In our report of last year, to which we respectfully refer 
you, we suggested that in order to insure that efficiency 
which is expected of the Department, that horses should be 
provided for the purpose of taking our engines to fires ; and, 
also, that a good engineer be permanently employed to run 
and take care of our engines. The Department also labor un- 
der a great disadvantage for the want of a proper fire alarm. 
We hope these matters will receive that consideration which 
their importance demands. 

We desire to return our thanks to the Honorable Board of 
Selectmen for the assistance rendered us in the discharge of 
our duties during the past year.
