SELECTMEN'S REPORT. 



In presenting to the town their annual report, the Select- 
men would state that they have endeavored to conduct the 
financial affairs of the town in an economical manner, in ac- 
cordance with the plainly expressed desire of the citizens at 
the annual appropriation meeting ; and although in some in- 
stances they have been compelled to overdraw certain appro- 
priations, in the main, it will be seen that the expenditures 
under their immediate control have come within the limits of 
the appropriations. 

There was appropriated for highways, $4,000 ; expended, 
$3,527.32; balance unexpended, $472.68. For incidentals, 
$5,000; expended, $6,478.69; excess of expenditure, $1,478.- 
69. It will be remembered that at the annual appropriation 
meeting the Selectmen asked for $7,000 for incidentals ; this 
amount was the result of careful estimates of known expend- 
itures to be incurred during the year. By referring to the 
incidental report, it will be seen that the six items of insur- 
ance, street lighting, rent of town offices, collector's salary, 
printing and gas amount to over $5,000 ; and the Selectmen 
being fully aware that the above items of expense must be 
provided for, felt fully justified in their request for $7,000. 
For poor, $3,500; expended, $2,564.32 ; balance unexpended, 
$935.68. Police, $1,500 ; expended, $1,468.60 ; balance unex- 
pended. $31.40. Total amount of above appropriations, $14,- 
000; expended. $14,038.93. 

highways. 

The heavy rains in the early spring caused considerable 
damage to most of the hillside streets, and a large amount of 



6 

time and money was expended in putting them in repair 
before any permanent improvements were attempted. Dur- 
ing the past year, West street has been thoroughly rebuilt 
from the Boston line to its junction with Austin street, and 
will require but little attention for years to come. Fairmount 
avenue and River streets between the New York and New 
England and Boston and Providence railroads have been 
thoroughly rebuilt with screened gravel, and are in excellent 
condition, as is evident to all who use these thoroughfares ; 
the sidewalks also between the above-named points have been 
covered with fine gravel. Various other streets and sidewalks 
in the different sections of the town have been improved. A 
right of way having been given by the abuttors, the Select- 
men acting in concert with .the Board of Health, have con- 
structed a covered culvert under Green street, at a point 
near the Boston and Providence railroad depot, to convey 
into Mother brook the stagnant water which, after a heavy 
rain, accumulates on the low ground in the rear of said depot, 
and which, in the opinion of the Boards, was a fruitful source 
of disease, as well as a great inconvenience to the residents 
of that vicinity. 

The bridges in town are believed to be in good condition. 
Fairmount avenue, Central Park avenue ; and River street 
bridge, above the Cotton mill (Readville District), have been 
replanked, and the abuttments of the bridge over Stony 
brook, near the Clarendon Hills station, have been repaired. 

In regard to the highways, we would suggest that the gut- 
ters on several of the avenues on Fairmount be paved, 
as in this way only, can the said streets be kept in good con- 
dition. Central Park and Hyde Park avenues should be 
rebuilt during the coming year, as the heavy travel over these 
streets have worn them out. Had it not been for the con- 
tinued drouth in the summer, delaying the rebuilding of Fair- 
mount avenue and River street, this work would have been 
undertaken during the past season. The convenience of the 
travelling public requires that the town should take some 
action in regard to the construction of a covered culvert from 



the corner of River and Webster streets, through Walter 
street to the river, as only in this way can the accumulation 
of surface water at this point be removed. 

The guide boards throughout the town are in fair con- 
dition. " Old Sorrel " having died, after years of faithful 
service, the Selectmen have purchased a new horse to fill the 
vacancy. 

STREET LAMPS. 

During the past year, six street lamps have been added at 
private expense, and the total number now lighted by the 
town, including the handsome lantern on the town pump in 
Everett square, presented by F. A. Brown, Esq., the efficient 
agent of the New England Gas Light Company, is 133. The 
light furnished gives general satisfaction, and although occa- 
sional complaints have been received, upon investigation it 
ha6 usually been found that the fault was but temporary, and 
the company have been prompt to remedy the defect. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The resignation of the Fire Department early in the year 
compelled a reorganization, and this was effected through the 
co-operation of the retiring members, in a manner satisfactory 
to the Selectmen, and without imperilling the interests of the 
citizens. Unexpected expenditures on account of hose have 
obliged the department to exceed their appropriation ; but it 
was considered unwise by the joint boards to imperil the 
efficiency of the department for lack of working material. 
We are pleased to state that harmony prevails in the Depart- 
ment, and that the prompt response made to all calls upon it, 
and the earnest labors of its members is sufficient evidence 
of the interest taken by all connected with this branch of the 
public service. 

FOURTH OF JULY. 

The patriotic observance of the Centennial of American 
Independence by our citizens should not be allowed to pass 



without mention in this report, the successful inception and 
carrying out of the celebration, are well known to every cit- 
izen ; and the permanent memorials in Everett square will 
long remain as reminders of that pleasant occasion. In this 
connection it is proper to add, that through the exertions of 
one of our citizens, the twenty-eighth day of October last was 
set apart as a general tree-planting day, and on that day there 
were set out on the streets and avenues of the town seven 
hundred shade trees. 

TOWN HALL. 

There has been received during the year from the Town 
Hall building, $729.00 ; less necessary expenses incurred, 
$313.15 ; net balance paid to Town Treasurer $415.85. 

LICENSE LAW. 

The Selectmen having carefully observed the working 'of the 
non-license plan during the previous year, were convinced 
that the best interests of the temperance cause would be 
served by the adoption of the law ; and have accordingly dur- 
ing the past year granted twelve licenses, of which five have 
been revoked for cause. The amount of money received from 
this source has been $1,700; less one-fourth of same paid 
into the State treasury, $425 ; leaving a balance of $1,275 
paid into the Town treasury. 

From carefully collected statistics in possession of the 
Board, it can be shown that a much smaller number of places 
for the sale of liquors are open in the town, than during the 
previous year, and while not claiming that this is wholly due 
to the course adopted, yet we are firmly of the opinion, that 
the law, although faulty in some respects, — in view of the 
fact that no legislation in the past has been able to prevent 
the sale of liquors ; the present law is not wholly evil, and 
if aided by the hearty co-operation of the citizens, would tend 
to reduce to the minimum, the evils which flow from the un- 
restrained sale of intoxicating liquors. 



9 

In conclusion, the Selectmen would congratulate the cit- 
izens for the harmony which has prevailed in the various 
departments of the public service, and tender their hearty 
thanks for the support they have received from all classes of 
the citizens in carrying out the various plans of the Board. 

Very respectfully, your obedient servants, 

EDWIN R. WALKER, ) Selectmen

REPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



In submitting our report to the Town, we are able to say 
that the appropriation for the support of the poor, was ample 
to meet all expenditures and leave a surplus, as will be seen 
by the following statements : — 

The amount appropriated was $3,500, and we found to the 
credit of this department at the commencement of the year, 
$199.09 on account of coal purchased last year, making an 
aggregate of $3,699.09, of this sum there has been expended 
$2,763.41, leaving a balance of $935.68, which under our by- 
laws, goes into the sinking fund. 

The amounts due from other towns, and the Common- 
wealth, on account of paupers aided by us, added to the 
amount paid for bills incurred in 1875, is sufficient to so 
reduce the sum expended, that the actual cost for the support 
of poor for the year will not exeeed $2,500. The Selectmen 
have employed quite a number of men during the year, 
(giving each a few days work on the streets,) who would in 
some cases have needed further aid from this department. 

The Board of last year recommended " that the town pro- 
vide some suitable place for persons sick and destitute." As 
a matter of economy, we are of the opinion that some action 
should be taken in this matter as early as practicable. We 
are now boarding at considerable expense, at the Taunton 
Lunatic Asylum, four persons, and from a statement recently 
received from the Superintendent, we infer that they could be 
as well taken care of by a competent keeper of an alms- 
house as at that institution. We are also fully supporting 
others who have settlements in this town ; and we are liable, at 
any time, by the death of a parent, to have large families left 
to be provided for by the Overseers. 

A large proportion of the persons to whom we have ren- 
dered aid have no settlement, but we did not feel it our duty, 
or deem it advisable to send families to the State Alms 



28 



House, when a comparatively small amount of assistance 
would relieve them. It is hoped that the laws of the Com- 
monwealth will be changed, so that Overseers may render 
temporary aid to worthy poor and be re-imbursed therefor, by 
the State. 

TKAMPS. 

This class of persons are a subject of comment in every 
municipal register in the Commonwealth. The Chief of Po- 
lice reports to us that 1257 "tramps" have been lodged in 
the Station House during the year. The expense to the town 
for food, medicine and extra attendance, amounts to $59.22, 
and by a careful calculation as to cost per capita, it will be 
seen that no extra inducements are offered to this class of 
individuals to repeat their visits, (for refieshments at least.) 
It is stated, however, to the Board that no person need go 
away hungry. The lodging-rooms are comfortable, and very 
few complain as to their treatment. 

The following is a detailed statement of expenditures, to- 
gether with the names of persons to whom aid has been ren- 
dered during the year : —

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

It is with satisfaction that we are enabled to state, that 
during the past year, the town has been free from any epi- 
demic. Two cases of reported small-pox, upon investigation 
proved to be varioloid, and the usual precautions were taken, 
until all danger of contagion had passed.. 

The sanitary laws have been practically enforced, and 
several nuisances abated. The stagnant water which in 
times past has accumulated on the low ground in the rear of 
the Boston & Providence Railroad, had become a source of 
frequent complaint to the Board, by residents in that vicinity ; 
and as the public good seemed to require that this nuisance 
should be abated, the Board have constructed a covered cul- 
vert under Green street, through private lands, — the owners 
having given to the town a right of way — by which the 
water is conveyed to Mother Brook. 

The Board would suggest that the town take some action 
to prevent the common practice of depositing in Neponset 
river, dead animals, and other waste matter, as besides being 
an offence to the eye, in warm weather, when the water is 
low, the rapid decay of animal and vegetable matter, in this 
exposed situation, is dangerous to the health of the commu- 
nity, and becomes a public nuisance.

ENGINEERS' REPORT. 



At the close of this, the Centennial year, it gives us great 
pleasure to announce that the department is at present very 
well equipped and in an efficient condition. The past year 
has been marked by an unusually large number of fires, and 
we regret to say, many of them have been the work of incen- 
diaries. The demands upon the department have conse- 
quently been frequent, yet have been promptly met, and to 
the best of the ability of its members, with the facilities at 
their disposal. We believe that the firemen have been dili- 
gent and faithful in the discharge of their duties. 

There is at present in the department 5,300 feet of hose, 
1,600 feet of which is nearly worn out, and 300 feet has been 
condemned, leaving 3,400 feet of good serviceable hose, 1000 
feet having been purchased during the past year. 

We have investigated the merits of the Chemical Fire En^ 
gine, and have come to the conclusion that one of them 
would be of great service to this Town, particularly where 
there is an insufficient supply of water, or at the early stages 
of a fire. We would earnestly recommend the purchase of 
one, as we consider that it would prove to be money well in- 
vested. 

We find that a number of our fires are caused by defec- 
tive flues, and would recommend a building law, similar to 
the laws now in force in other cities and towns. 

In conclusion we would add that something should be done 
with regard to obtaining water from Stony Brook, near West 
street ; on Dana avenue, Fairmount District ; and also in 
Sunnyside District. 

Yours very respectfully, 

WM. U. FAIRBAIRN, 
L. A RUNNELLS.

The Town Clerk requests information of any omission or error 
in the above tables, in order that the registration may be as com- 
plete as possible. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

HENRY B. TERRY, Town Clerk. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF OF POLICE. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — The subjoined is my annual report for the 
year ending Dec. 31st, 1876, together with the criminal 
record. The whole number of arrests during the year was 
117, for the following crimes : — Larceny, 7 ; assault and bat- 
tery, 15 ; liquor nuisance, 5 ; single sale of liquor, 13 ; illegal 
keeping liquor, 12 ; keeping open shop on the Lords' day, 3 ; 
common drunkards, 7 ; simple drunkeness, 27 ; breaking and 
entering in the night, 1 ; vagrants, 13 ; juvenile offenders, 12 ; 
rescue of horse from pound, 1 ; cruelty to animals, 1. The 
number of houses entered is less than last year, and I would 
request all persons having knowledge of robberies to report 
the same as soon as possible at the police office, as early in- 
formation in such cases is of the utmost importance. The 
lock-up is in good condition having been put in thorough 
repair. The number of tramps supplied with food and lodg- 
ing during the year was 1257, being nearly four hundred more 
than last year. The decrease of intemperance in the town 
has been very noticeable during the year. I would suggest 
that a By-law be passed by the town which shall apply to the 
suppression of truancy which is becoming alarmingly preva- 
lent. The following is a schedule of the property belonging 
to and contained in the Station-house, to-wit : — 17 pairs of 
blankets, 8 mattrasses, 8 pillows, 4 slop buckets, 6 quart pots, 
7 pairs handcuffs, 3 pair toggles, 4 billies, 4 rattles, 2 lanterns. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES JACOBS, 

Chief of Police. 



BY-LAWS. 



At a meeting of the legal voters pf the town of Hyde Park, 
held August 2, 1875, it was voted to adopt the following By-Laws, 
to wit : — 

NOTIFICATION OF TOWN MEETINGS. 

Every town meeting shall be notified by posting copies of the war- 
rant calling the same, in ten public places in the town, seven days, 
at least, before the day appointed for said meeting ; and a copy of 
the warrant shall be published in the local newspapers of the town 
once, at least, before said meeting. 

ANNUAL TOWN MEETING. 

The annual town meeting shall be held on the first Monday of 
March of each year. The meeting shall be opened at eight o'clock 
a.m., and the polls shall be kept open until sunset. 

RULES FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF TOWN MEETINGS. 

1. — Every meeting shall be opened with prayer. 

2. — All questions submitted for the consideration of the town, in- 
volving the expenditure of money, shall be in -writing. 

3. — No vote fixing the period for closing a ballot shall be reconsid- 
ered after such ballot shall have commenced ; but it may be in Order 
to extend the period without such reconsideration. 

4. — When a question is under debate, motions shall be received to 
adjourn, to lay on the table, the previous question, to postpone to a 
certain time, to postpone indefinitely, to commit, or to amend ; which 
several motions shall have precedence in the order in which they are 
herein arranged. 

5. — The powers and duties of the presiding officer, not especially 
provided for by law, or by the foregoing rules, shall be determined 
by the rules of practice contained in "Cushing's Manual," so far as 
they are adapted to the condition and powers of the town. 

6. — No vote shall be reconsidered except upon a motion made 
within one hour after such vote has passed, unless such reconsidera- 
tion is ordered by a vote of two-thirds of the voters present. 



51

ruary in each year, and end on the thirty-first day of the following

papers.

same delivered to the collector, on or before the first day of August 
of each year.

REPORT. 



At the close of the first century of our national existence, 
and upon entering the second, we may well pause for the mo- 
ment, to consider the mistakes and errors of the past, and 
how, in the future, we may be able to avoid and remedy them. 

Our fathers planted the seeds of prosperity when they es- 
tablished the common school, as the foundation of this 
Republic. 

Education here is free. All may come to the fountain of 
knowledge and partake, the poor as well as the rich, without 
any invidious distinction of cast or sect. Here, knowledge 
is power. The common schools are the conservators of 
Republican institutions. 

Rome once had her Republic, but she had her standing 
armies to defend it. America has her Republic, but her 
common schools are her defense. The common school sys- 
tem lies at the foundation of that form of government, which 
is best fitted for the highest development of man. Let it be 
carefully preserved and improved. To this end, therefore, 
let none but wise and harmonious counsels prevail in the 
control and management of this most important element in 
our government. No community can afford to be partisan in 
the management of its public schools. 

The School Committee, as public officers, are vested, by 
the statutes of this Commonwealth, with great discretionary 
powers in the establishment and management of schools. 
It is well that the community take a lively interest in the 
management of schools, but it is of the utmost importance 
that it be co-operative with the Committee rather than disor- 
ganizing, and such as to neutralize their efforts. School 
Committees cannot make the schools effective without the 
co-operation of good teachers and well-disposed parents. 



82 



SCHOOL EXPENSES. 



At the beginning of the present year the Committee were 
met with an obstacle somewhat embarrassing. At the town 
meeting, in March, they asked for an appropriation of $20,000 
for the salaries of teachers and janitors, and for fuel. This 
was refused; and only $15,000 were appropriated. This 
action, on the part of the town, was nearly unanimous, there 
being scarcely a remonstrance against it. The Committee, 
though not legally bound by the action of the town, in the 
matter of school expenses, nevertheless felt it to be their duty 
to pay respectful attention to the expressed will of the citi- 
zens, and have endeavored, in every way known to a just 
economy, to reduce the expenses, so far as possible, without 
lowering the standard of the schools, and thus, in some de- 
gree, lighten the already too heavy burden resting on the tax- 
payers. In this, the Committee feel that they have succeeded, 
with the encouragement of a large part of the community and 
the co-operation of the teachers in cheerfully submitting to a 
reduction of their salaries. The schools have never been in 
so good a condition as they are to-day. The town was never 
blessed with better and more efficient teachers than those 
now serving in the schools, many of them having been with 
us a number of years. 

The Committee recognize the fact that the present pay of 
the teachers would, in ordinary times of prosperity, be con- 
siderably too low ; but they also recognize the fact that 
many citizens in the community, who are tax-payers, have felt 
the necessity, for the past few years, of exercising the most 
rigid economy, in their business and households, to meet 
their current expenses, and some of those who have been re- 
garded as well to do in this world's goods, have not been 
able to meet their assessments, in consequence of which their 
estates have been sold for the taxes, as the records of the 
town officials will amply attest. 

By the laws of this Commonwealth, education for children 
between the ages of five and fifteen years , is compulsory. 



83 

Poverty is the greatest obstacle to the execution of this law ; 
in other words, another law comes into play, which counter- 
acts and, to a considerable extent, overrides it, which is the 
law of necessity. " Necessity knows no law." Many chil- 
dren are kept out of school from this cause alone. The 
parents feel that their children must work to enable the 
family to maintain existence. The community is poor. The 
whole country is sensibly feeling the hard times. Much of 
this financial depression is due to the extravagance in the 
government of our Municipal, State and National matters. 
For the past fifteen years, extravagance has been the rule 
and not the exception in public as well as in private affairs. 
Two years ago, this town, through its School Committee, 
began the work of economy in the matter of school expenses, 
and this year a further decrease of expenses has been ef- 
fected, and our example has been followed in many other 
towns throughout the State. It may be a serious question 
as to whether it should begin with the schools, but the 
answer is, better there than nowhere. All avocations for ob- 
taining a livelihood are necessarily interlinked in a civilized 
community, and the remuneration for labor, intellectual as 
well as merely physical, should be justly apportioned as nearly 
as may be, to the actual and necessary demands upon such 
avocations. Matters of detail will always accommodate 
themselves to the general rule, or in other words, " take care 
of themselves." It is a law of business, that the margin of 
profit decreases in proportion as the remuneration becomes 
certain. The merchant embarks his capital and takes the 
risk of its loss ; he has a right to expect a larger profit than 
the professional man or teacher, because he takes the greater 
risk. It is no advantage to teachers in the end, that their 
salaries should be so high as to tend to the impoverishment 
of the community, that is to pay them ; but they should 
always be as well paid as the community can afford. Never- 
theless, the good teacher will be apt to realize that his own 
pecuniary interest is, in a great measure, identical with the 
pecuniary ability of his paymaster. 



84 

This action, by the Committee, of reducing the salaries, 
was taken upon mature deliberation and under a solemn 
sense of duty, and in view of the capabilities and fidelity ex- 
hibited on the part of all the teachers, nothing but such sense 
of duty, under all the circumstances, could have induced the 
Committee to make this reduction. In this connection, David 
A. Wells of Connecticut, who possesses one of the keenest 
minds that have undertaken to deal with the subject of 
finance, in the course of his lecture on the " Causes and 
remedies of the present financial and industrial depression," 
delivered before the Lowell Institute, December 6, 1876, 
says, " there has got to be a complete and radical change in 
the entire fiscal policy of this nation, acceded to either volun- 
tarily and intelligently, or forced upon us through further 
hard and costly experiences. First and present there has 
got to be a great and speedy reduction in all public expendi- 
tures — Federal, State and Municipal. The public hand can 
no longer with safety take, through direct or indirect taxa- 
tion, from the private pocket so large a proportion of individ- 
ual earnings, as for the last ten years it has done, and even 
now continues to do ; and the individual can no longer with 
safety to himself counsel or encourage the nation as a whole 
or as communities, to undertake to carry out in a few years 
all the improvements which other and older nations' have 
taken generations to effect." 

From the year 1865, the close of the war, to 1872, the 
country appeared to be in a very prosperous condition. Peo- 
ple grew rich for the time on inflated value. In 1872, the 
ebb tide of our misfortunes came on, being accelerated by 
great disasters, and especially, in this part of the country, by 
the great Boston fire, which occurred November 9th, of 
that year. Depression in value then set in and has con- 
tinued until property, which before constituted the wealth of 
the owner, has shrunk away to such a degree as to fender 
him poor in proportion to the amount possessed by him ; but 
neither the mortgages or taxes shrank or abated a tittle, but 
on the other hand, grew larger and more burdensome. The 



85 

above are some of the more potent reasons which actuated 
the Committee in making the reduction referred to in this 
report. 

STATISTICAL. 

In the first year of our corporate existence as a town, viz., 
1868, the Committee fixed the pay of the female teachers at 
$400 for the Primary, and $500 for the Intermediate, and that 
of the Masters of the Readville and Central $1200 to $1500, 
per annum. In the same year, the Committee voted that the 
salaries of the teachers of the Primary and Intermediate 
schools be the same, to wit. : $400 for the first, #450 for the 
second, and $500 for the third year. 

In 1870, the salaries of the Grammar Masters were fixed 
at $1200 per year. 

In 1 87 1, $100 per annum, were added to the salaries of the 
female teachers, making them $500, $550 and $600 per an- 
num. At the same time, the salaries of the Masters were 
again fixed at $1200, $1300 and $1400 per annum. 

In 1872, this was increased by $200, making their salaries 
$1600 per annum. 

In 1875, the salaries of the Masters were again changed, 
and fixed at $1000 for the first, $1 100 for the second and 
$1200 for the third year of service ; and the salaries of the 
female teachers were at the same time reduced ten per cent., 
leaving them at $450, $495 and $540 per annum. 

The salaries of the teachers of the High School during 
the several years past, have ranged as follows : In 1871, that 
of the Principal was $1700, increased in 1872 to $1900 per 
annum ; that of the assistant, in 1871, was fixed at $700, and 
of the second assistant, in 1872, at $600 per annum, in- 
creased, in 1873, to $750 and $650 per annum. In 1875, the 
salaries were reduced to $1600 for the Principal, and $675, 
each, for the two assistants. 

The sums expended for music in the schools in the year 
1868 was $67.47; in 1869, $200 ; increased in 1872 to $1000 



86 

and further increased, in 1873, to $1100 ; reduced in 1875 to 
#630, and in 1876 to $250. , 

During the present school year the salaries were reduced 
and fixed viz.: For the female teachers in the Grammar 
Schools at $400 for the first, $425 for the second and $450 
for the third and subsequent years of service. That of the 
Principal of High School, at $1500 ; the two assistants, $600 
for the first and $500 for the second assistants. The salaries 
of the Masters were allowed to remain as fixed in 1875, the 
Committee believing that it would be doing a decided in- 
justice to make any further reduction in their pay, taking 
into consideration the character and ability of those teachers 
and the expense of living. 

When the town was incorporated, in 1868, there were 
eleven schools within what are the prescribed limits of the 
town, — four in the territory formerly of Dedham, five in 
that of Dorchester, and four in that of Milton. The first 
School Committee of the town were elected May 1, 1868, 
and organized the next day. The current expenses of the 
schools, number of school children, average attendance and 
average cost per scholar, from year to year, from that time 
to the present, are given in tables to follow : — 

SCHOOL BUILDINGS. 

Serious mistakes have been made in the erection and loca- 
tion of our school buildings, entailing a great expense in 
maintaining our schools which otherwise would have been 
unnecessary. The Damon was built in 1870; the Grew and 
Blake in 1871, and the Greenwood in 1872, at a total cost, 
exclusive of furniture, &c, of about $125,000. These build- 
ings are capable of accommodating about 2000 scholars. The 
High School building is not included in the above state- 
ment. There are still unoccupied in all these buildings 
eleven rooms capable of seating six hundred pupils. It 
would have been wiser to have built better and less exten- 
sive buildings. The Greenwood building poorly accommo- 



87 

dates a large part of its patrons from its out of the way loca- 
tion. 

HEATING. 

Great difficulty has been experienced in heating the build- 
ings during the cold weather, and especially has this been 
true of the Damon and Greenwood Districts, thereby caus- 
ing the town great expense for fuel and heating apparatus. 
The expense of repairing and replacing heating apparatus in 
these two buildings the past year has exceeded the sum of 
$500, owing principally to the necessity of keeping up 
strong fires, and even running the furnaces to the full extent 
has not produced a sufficient amount of heat for the health 
of teachers and scholars, in consequence of which, frequent 
dismissals in the coldest of the weather have occurred. 

REPAIRS. 

The buildings on the High School grounds were found to 
be fast deterioating in value, never having been painted since 
their construction. Proposals for painting them were invited 
and received by the Committee. The contract was awarded 
to Smith & Son, of Hyde Park, for $197, all labor and ma- 
terials, of best quality, to be furnished by them, and was per- 
formed to the satisfaction of the Committee. The expendi- 
ture was wise and economical. 

This, together with the extraordinary expense of heating 
apparatus above referred to and bills laid over from previous 
and paid the current year, will account satisfactorily, as we 
hope, to the town, for the excess of expenditure over the ap- 
propriations for school incidentals. 

GRADED SYSTEM. N 

It was strongly urged upon the Committee to abolish the 
present graded system and establish a different one, so as to 
enlarge the schools and dispense with teachers, thus making 



a saving of their salaries ; but the Committee could not see 
their way clear to make radical changes of this nature. The 
breaking up the gradations and promotions would be likely 
to effect an injury, for which the saving of expense could not 
compensate. 

REGULATIONS AND COURSE OF STUDY. 

These have been modified and, as the Committee believe, 
better adapted for the use of the schools. The essential 
elements of the old are retained in the new regulations and 
course of study. The modification consists principally in 
eliminating a great quantity of redundant and superfluous 
matter in the " Direction," and in a more simplified form of 
arrangement of the studies to be pursued. 

A more radical change has been made in the High School 
course, both in matter and arrangement, the aim of the Com- 
mittee, throughout, being to place, at the disposal of the 
pupil in the simplest manner, the means of acquiescing and 
fixing in the mind fundamental principles of knowledge 
which, after leaving the school of instruction, will serve as 
an unerring guide in the acquirement of a liberal and useful 
education. 

The present is an age eminently utilitarian and may aptly 
be styled the " Iron Age." Although the heart should never 
be neglected, yet the head should receive a fair proportion of 
training and discipline. The aim of our public schools should 
be, by all means, to make our children useful to themselves 
and capable of making their own way in the world, as well as 
ornamental in society. 

TRUANCY. 

i 
This is a subject upon which there has been much and fre- 
quent legislation by the General Court of this Common- 
wealth. The State law makes it obligatory upon cities and 
towns to enact by-laws concerning habitual truants, children 
not attending school and growing up in ignorance, with pen- 



89 

alties, under certain limits, for the violation thereof. Hyde 
Park has not complied with this requirement, and there is no 
law authorizing the arrest or punishment of this class of 
children. The State statutes are so numerous and confusing 
as to afford a reasonable excuse for not having complied 
with this law ; but after a careful examination of these 
statutes, the Committee are of the opinion that the town has 
power to enact by-laws with penalties, on conviction, of fine 
not exceeding twenty dollars or committal to such Teforma- 
tory institution as the town in such by-laws shall assign. 
The statutes also provide that the town may assign, for that 
purpose, any institution provided therefor by the County 
Commissioners, or with the assent of the Board of State 
Charities, the State Primary School at Monson, and the 
County Commissioners are obliged to provide a place on 
united request of three towns of the county, for the confine- 
ment and instruction of such children. The County Com- 
missioners have never provided any place for the confinement 
of such children. It is not practicable for Hyde Park to unite 
with two other towns, if indeed that can be done, which is 
very doubtful. The Committee have requested the Board of 
State Charities for leave to assign the school at Monson, but 
this has been refused. They have also made a like request of 
the authorities in control of other institutions of the kind, 
but have been refused in every case. It is evident that the 
town cannot comply with this portion of the statute because 
there is nothing which it can assign for the purpose men- 
tioned in the statute ; but the Committee are of the opinion 
that the power to fine, provided by the general statutes, has 
not been taken away from the towns by any subsequent legis- 
lation. They have accordingly prepared a code of by-laws 
upon this subject, which, they believe, will serve the purpose 
intended thereby, and they recommend them for adoption by 
the town at the earliest practicable moment.

MUSIC. 

The usefulness of this branch of education is established, 
and the only question before the Committee, the present 
year, was whether a teacher should be employed specially for 
the purpose. It was believed, that to employ the whole time 
of a teacher in that department would involve too heavy an 
expenditure of money than the need would warrant. The 
town has always employed a music teacher, more or less, in 
every year since its organization. An arrangement was made 
with Mr. H. J. Whittemore, of this town, who has had charge 
of this branch for the past five years, to devote one day in 
each week, in the schools, during the year for the sum of 
$250. This arrangement Mr. Whittemore has faithfully 
carried out, not only giving the time agreed upon, but one- 
half day each week, additional, which seemed to be requisite 
to do justice to all of the schools. 

The usefulness of vocal music has never been overrated. 
In no degree does it interfere with the regular studies in the 
schools. On the contrary, the schools are better for it. It 
is a healthful exercise, produces cheerfulness, and invigorates 
and stimulates to activity. It brings lustre to the eye and 
cheerfulness to the heart. 



EVENING SCHOOLS. 



Evening schools were established, by a vote of the town, in 
1874, the sum of $225 being expended therefor during that 
year. The expenditure for this purpose was increased in 
1875 to $406, and the present year it has amounted to $396,63. 
Two schools were opened in October last and closed in Janu- 
ary the present year, — one in the Grew and the other in the 
Damon School buildings, — being kept thirteen weeks, five 
evenings in a week, and attended by 102 different scholars, 21 
being the average attendance. About three-fifths of the 
number attending were males, and two-fifths females, varying 



91 

in ages from twelve to twenty-six years. The branches 
taught are reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic and algebra. 
The schools are open to all persons except those under the 
age of twelve years, and those attending day schools, and the 
pupils are required to supply themselves with necessary 
books. 

CLEANLINESS. 

Rule 14 of the School Regulations provides that every 
pupil shall be cleanly in person and dress, with clothes prop- 
erly repaired. The Committee urge upon parents the impor- 
tance of the observance of this rule, and enjoin a strict care 
in relation thereto, on the part of the teachers, that it be 
complied with. The observance of this rule will cost the 
parent nothing except a little extra exertion, which will am- 
ply repay the expenditure. Children of poor parents are not 
expected to be richly dressed ; but it is expected and insisted 
upon, that they shall be clean and supplied with a sufficient 
amount of clothing to protect them from the weather, while 
attending school.]
