1896. 



Hon. Josiah Quincy, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

Sir : In compliance with the Revised Ordinances, the 
annual report of the operations and expenses of the Street 
Department for the year 1895 is herewith respectfully 
submitted. 

Organization. 

The work of the department during the past year has been 
carried on under the same organization that was effected 
when the consolidated department was created in 1891, with 
the exception that, as recommended in the last report of the 
department, a Street-Watering Division has been established, 
and the work of street watering, formerly carried on by the 
Paving Division, with a foreman in charge, now devolves 
upon the Deputy Superintendent of this division. 

By the provisions of Chapter 449 of the Acts of 1895, 
the Ferry Department, on July 1, 1895, became a part 
of the Street Department, and was on that date organized 
as the Ferry Division. 

The several divisions of the department are as follows : 

The Central Office. 

Bridge Division. • 

Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 

Ferry Division. 

Paving Division. 

Sanitary Division. 

Sewer Division. 

Street-Cleaning Division. 

Street- Watering Division. 

Each of the above divisions, with the exception of the 
Central Office Division and the Boston and Cambridge 
Bridges, is in charge of a Deputy Superintendent. 



2 City Document No. 29 

The Boston and Cambridge Bridges are managed by two 
commissioners, the Superintendent of Streets being the com- 
missioner for the city of Boston, the other commissioner 
being appointed by the Mayor of the city of Cambridge. 

Much confusion has in past years resulted from the fact 
that the district lines were differently drawn in the several 
divisions, while the work of one division in a district often 
required the cooperation of another ; the openings made by 
a foreman of the Sewer Division, in a district, require the 
attention of the paving foreman, and in the central portion 
of the city, the district foreman of paving assists the district 
foreman of the street cleaning in times of storm. Formerly 
the district of one division overlapped and included portions 
of several districts of another division. 

The organization has been much improved, the work sim- 
plified, and cooperation made more easy by the rearrangement 
of the city into new Street Department districts which are 
the same for all divisions, the order for which was issued as 
follows :

(Signed) B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets. 

The result anticipated has been fully realized, and espe- 
cially has this been demonstrated in the Street-Cleaning 
Division, whose district lines most sadly needed alteration, 
having been practically unchanged since their first establish- 
ment by Superintendent Forristall, of the old Health De- 
partment. Economy of operation and increased efficiency 
resulted from the change, and the consequent reorganiza- 
tion, as is shown in the report of the Deputy Superintend- 
ent (Appendix F) ; the average cost of cleaning streets per 
mile, exclusive of supervision, last year, under old system, 
was $12.57 ; this year, under new organization, $11.80 ; the 
average cost, inclusive of supervision, yard and stable 
expenses, etc., last year, $15.61; this year, after reorgani- 
zation, $14.40, showing saving of $0.77 per mile in actual 
work of cleaning, and an additional saving of $0.44 per 
mile in supervision. 

Increased efficiency of the administrative force of the 
Sewer Division has been obtained by the removal of the 
offices to the Probate Building, Court square. Previous to 
this the Deputy Superintendent, clerks, and permit office 
of the Sewer Division were in City Hall, Room 44, the chief 
engineer, district engineers, and draughtsmen in six small 
dimly lighted rooms in a wooden addition in the rear of No. 
14 Beacon street ; here all the working and many record 
plans were necessarily kept, and much time consumed in 
travel over nearly one-quarter of a mile intervening between 
these offices and City Hall, plans for immediate reference 
being required by the Superintendent many times daily. 
Had fire swept these offices, the loss to the city would have 
been immeasurable. The office of the Street-Watering 
Division and of the Permit Office of the Paving Division 
were in the Old Court-House, and this separation of the 
two permit offices of the department in different buildings 
made needless confusion and annoyance for the public. By 
the occupancy of the Probate Building, a fire-proof structure 
of four stories, which was entirely renovated, the entire 
Sewer Division offices were consolidated upon the three 
upper floors, much-needed room and light acquired for 
draughting, and proper fire-proof storage given for plans. 
Upon the lower floor were located the permit office of the 



Street Department. 5 

Paving- Division and the Street-Watering Division, and this 
building being entirely occupied by offices of the Street 
Department, was connected with the general office of the 
Superintendent of Streets in City Hall by an iron covered 
bridge, bringing them, to all intents and purposes, under 
the roof of City Hall and within the personal reach of the 
Superintendent. Events have proved that had it not been 
for this consolidation of forces and increased working space, 
it would have been impossible to have carried on the engi- 
neering and administration of the vast amount of sewer 
construction undertaken this year. 

Purchasing. 

Early in the year a change was inaugurated in the methods 
and forms of purchasing supplies for the departments, the 
office of Purchasing Agent was abolished and the Superin- 
tendent became personally responsible, as he should be, in 
all matters of expense charged to the appropriation of this 
department ; these methods resulted in reducing the amounts 
purchased by deputies, foremen, and others to a minimum. 
New forms of duplicate bills were introduced ; before a bill 
is now passed for payment the signature has been obtained 
of the foreman who received the goods, of the chief clerk of 
the division ordering, of the Deputy Superintendent, the 
purchasing clerk, and the Superintendent of Streets. 

Responsibility for the order, receipt, quality, and price is 
therefore fully fixed. The results obtained are made appar- 
ent by a comparison of the percentages of the total annual 
expenditure paid for bills and for labor last year and this, 
showing a saving of some 6J per cent, in bills, which con- 
sequently gave opportunity for an increased percentage of 
expenditure in labor upon the streets ; a part of this saving 
has been so expended and the balance of the appropriation, 
$24,822.37, has been returned to the city treasury. 

Yards and Stables. 

In South Boston, the stables, yards, and offices of the Pav- 
ing, Street-Cleaning, and Sanitary divisions are upon leased 
property, the Sewer Division yard and Paving wharf are upon 
city property included in the limits of the Strandway, which 
must soon be vacated, and the Bridge Division is obliged to 
rent a stable and has no fit accommodations for office and 
storehouse. A piece of land with wharf privileges should be 
purchased and buildings for the use of these four divisions 
erected upon it. 

In East Boston, the quarters of the Paving and Sewer 



6 City Document No. 29. 

divisions on city land are inadequate and unsatisfactory and 
the buildings must soon be rebuilt ; the city owns no wharf 
privilege, although in the district all supplies of paving and 
crushed stone must reach it by water ; there is no yard for 
the Sanitary and Street-Cleaning divisions ; the collection of 
ashes and offal therefore must be done by contract, and the 
Charlestown street-cleaning force journeys to East Boston 
in order to give it an aspect of cleanliness twice a week. 
These conditions should be changed and a location provided 
on the water-front for these four divisions, with suitable build- 
ings for each. 

The Back Bay district has in its yard no stable accommo- 
dations except for the driving-horse of the foreman, and con- 
sequently all teams here employed are hired ; sufficient room 
should be provided to give stabling to the minimum number 
of horses required. 

Attention is also called to the entirely inadequate quarters 
at the Main and Intercepting Sewer yard on Massachusetts 
avenue, near Albany street. Negotiations were opened dur- 
ing the year for the purchase of the buildings of the New 
England Construction Company, on the city land at Gibson 
street, Dorchester, for this purpose, but were not satisfac- 
torily terminated. 

The city should and could economically maintain a suffi- 
cient force of horses to do its entire work at the periods of 
ordinary demand, and the hiring of teams should be elimi- 
nated as far as possible, and a certain and considerable saving 
would then accrue to the city. 

But the accommodations are at present insufficient, and 
no money is available for additions either to stable or stock ; 
the maintenance appropriation, which is the only one avail- 
able, being severely taxed to replace with sufficient rapidity 
the horses who outlive their usefulness or become injured in 
the city's employ. Additional stables and stock of 75 
horses in the different divisions are required, and would 
result in an annual saving of about $150 per single team 
(horse and man), besides giving employment to an equal 
number of citizens. A better service would be obtained than 
of the under-paid alien in charge of the hired horse of none 
too active character. 

Stony Brook. 

The question of the relation of Stony brook to the exten- 
sion of Columbus avenue and the raising of the tracks of the 
Providence Division of the N. Y., N.^H., & H. K.R. Co. 
was quite fully discussed in last year's report ; and as the 
result of the studies made at that time it was decided, for 



Street Department. 7 

the reasons therein set forth, to locate the channel proposed 
by the Stony Brook Commission of 1886 within the lines of 
the avenue, and to build it between the existing portion 
of the same channel which now ends at the Inlet Chamber 
and the section of improved channel built during the year 
by the N. Y., N. H., & H. R.R. Co. from near Ritchie street 
to 400 feet south of Boylston street, as a part of the con- 
struction of the avenue, and it has been so ordered by the 
Street Commissioners in their order of construction of the 
avenue. 

The necessity for extending the Commissioner's channel 
down to meet that now .ending at the Inlet Chamber is 
clearly shown by the photograph inserted in this report, 
showing the arch of the channel nearly submerged, and the 
channel entirely inaccessible for cleaning out or the removal 
of obstructions, accumulations of lumber, rubbish, etc. 

The scheme discussed for building a low level sewer, in 
connection with this channel, for those portions of West Rox- 
bury which cannot be sewered by extensions of the existing 
system of sewers has also been adopted, and a portion of it 
2,092.5 feet long has been built on the haunch of the arch of the 
channel built last season by the N. Y., N. EL, &H. R.R. Co., 
and the bill for the same has been paid by the city. Another 
portion of the low level sewer has been built in Tremont 
street, between the Roxbury Crossing and Texas street, the 
sewer being built inside of the existing 7 feet X 7 feet channel 
of Stony brook, and paid for by the abutter, as a part of the 
cost of diverting the brook around his premises. Plans are 
in progress for the construction of those sections of Columbus 
avenue between the Roxbury Crossing and Ritchie street, in 
which the Stony- brook channel and the West Roxbury low 
level sewer form a part of the system. 

This channel, carrying the sewer, should be built in advance 
of any other work of construction on this part of the avenue, 
because it requires the deepest excavation ; its construction 
should certainly precede the laying of any large water-mains. 

As a portion of, or possibly the entire present course of, 
the brook between the Inlet Chamber and the land of the High- 
land Foundry Company will probably have to be followed in 
building the new channel, and as this location is parallel and 
adjoining that of the Providence Division, this portion of 
the channel should be built before the railroad company 
begins to build its retaining-wall for raising its tracks, which 
will be begun by midsummer. 

The discussion in last year's report upon the route to be 
followed in building the new channel from the corner of Pyn- 
chon street (or Columbus avenue) and Centre street to Amory 



8 City Document No. 29. 

street, and thence to connect with the northerly end of the 
new channel just built by the N. Y., N. H., & H. R.R. Co., 
proceeded upon the assumption that the present location of 
the brook would be followed, and the cost of building the 
connecting link between the last-mentioned portion of the 
new channel and the portion to be built in Columbus avenue, 
ending near Ritchie street, was included in the estimate of 
cost, but this portion was not included in the order of con- 
struction by the Board of Street Commissioners. But now, 
on account of the removal of buildings and additional takings 
made by the railroad company at the corner of Centre and 
Amory streets, a shorter route may be found by following 
Centre street from its present intersection with Pynchon 
street to the easterly side of the railroad location, thence 
along the easterly side of this location to the northerly end- 
of the channel, as already built by the railroad company. 
This route is about 250 feet shorter than the present route 
of the brook, which would represent a saving of about 
$20,000, based upon the figures of the Commission of 1886, 
and would probably result in a larger saving, as a large 
amount of ledoe, and also the handling of the water of the 
brook during construction, would be avoided ; this last con- 
sideration is one which would be highly appreciated by con- 
tractors. This portion of the channel should not be built 
until the grade of Centre street has been lowered by the 
railroad company in order to carry it under their proposed 
bridge, but should be done immediately after and before 
Centre street is resurfaced. 

An additional reason for promptness is that the old channel 
between Centre and Ritchie streets cannot be filled in (and 
Columbus avenue cannot therefore be finished) until the new 
channel is completed. 

The question as presented in last year's discussion is still 
an open one as to the adoption of means by which water 
shall be furnished to the Boston Belting Company, if a settle- 
ment of their claim to the water of the brook is not made. 
Such a settlement seemed probable in the latter part of the 
year, the Mayor being authorized by the City Council to make 
such arrangements as it was hoped would relieve the city of 
one complication of the Stony-brook problem, which has 
vexed it for so many years ; but no agreement seems to have 
been reached. 

The building of an auxiliary channel from the farthest point 
up stream of the low-grade channel as improved, has, how- 
ever, been abandoned, and the water of the brook must be fur- 
nished, if at all, either by the erecting of a movable dam or the 
setting up of a pumping plant at the present Inlet Chamber. 



Street Department. 9 

The question of the treatment of Stony brook at one other 
point has arisen during the year ; namely, at the Washington- 
street crossing of \he N. Y., N. H., & H. E.R. near Forest 
Hills Station, occasioned by the proposed construction of the 
bridge abutments at this point necessary for the raising of 
the tracks of this railroad. 

Two alternatives presented themselves : either to construct 
a section of the improved low-grade channel at this point, 
forming another pocket and settling basin, which a continua- 
tion of the improvement would not reach for many years, 
or to abandon this location, since after the construction of 
the abutments no excavation for such a purpose could safely 
be made between them. It was found that the construction 
of the section would be very expensive and difficult even at 
this time, and it was therefore decided that a preferable ex- 
pedient would be to construct the conduit when future needs 
required, by extending it upon the easterly side of the rail- 
road upon a taking to be made for that purpose, either within 
or without the railroad location, to a point at which it might 
cross under the proposed embankment of the railroad to join 
the existing channel upon the other side. This arrangement 
not only obviated the necessity of present outlay, for no im- 
mediate advantage, but the new location will undoubtedly avoid 
a pocket of quicksand existing near the present crossing, and 
result in far more economical construction without material 
increase in the length. 

The consent of the railroad by its chief engineer has been 
obtained to the crossing of its right of way with this channel, 
" provided the city will agree to bear all the expense, when the 
conduit is constructed, in protecting the company's tracks," 
etc. — a usual and satisfactory condition. 

"The Boulevards." 

The four avenues, Blue Hill, Columbus, Huntington, and 
Commonwealth extension, which have come to be popularly 
known as "The Boulevards," have required a large amount 
of engineering, draughting, and supervision, and that portion 
upon which construction has been ordered by the Street Com- 
missioners has been divided for purposes of reference and 
contract into 38 sections ; these include the whole of the 
proposed avenues except that portion of Blue Hill avenue, 
from Walk Hill street to Milton line, which crosses the 
N. Y. & N. E. K.R., and upon which construction will not 
be ordered until the grade-crossing problem is solved at 
this point. 

Contracts, forty-two in number, have been let as required 



10 City Document No. 29. 

by law, and work corcmienced either upon sewer construction 
or grading, in some cases both, upon every one of these 38 
sections, except four on Columbus avenue lying between Rox- 
bury Crossing and Centre-street bridge, for which distance 
the avenue is laid out over the existing Pynchon street. 

Because of the fact that the operations of the N". Y., 1ST. 
H., & H. R.R. in raising its tracks between these points 
might inconvenience public travel, it seemed unwise to 
disturb the paved surface of the street and thus increase the 
burden upon heavy traffic in this vicinity, while either end 
of the avenue required such extensive work and was 
so far from completion. It is in these four sections, more- 
over, that Stony brook must go, and much additional time 
was required for the completion of the plans and the work- 
ing out of details. There seems to be now no good 
reason why operations should not commence in the early 
spring upon the important work of these sections, which in- 
cludes the provision for- Stony brook before referred to. 

In connection with the construction of these avenues, the 
West End Street Railroad Company has agreed, because of 
the privilege of location, to loam the entire width of all the 
reserved spaces to a depth of eight inches, at its sole cost 
and expense. 

Commonwealth Avenue. 

Work upon that portion of Commonwealth avenue which 
many years ago was laid out under the general law, has been 
continued during the year. Early in the season the short 
portion of the southerly roadway between Beacon street and 
Cottage Farm at the bridge remaining uncompleted was 
graded, and the roadway opened to travel. 

The widening of the bridge has been commenced. From 
the bridge to Brighton avenue the southerly roadway will be 
used as a speedway, and this is entirely subgraded, edge- 
stones set, and gutters paved and partly gravelled with loose 
material for this purpose ; a few days only of good weather 
will serve to complete it. The portion of the northerly 
roadway between the bridge and St. Paul street has been 
graded, curbing set, and gutters paved and constructed of 
Telford macadam, completing this section of the work. 

Beyond the intersection of Brighton avenue the character 
of the avenue changes, having no loamed reservation for 
street railway, but a wide central roadway instead, with 
winding side-roads on either hand. The westerly roadway 
has been graded, and a Telford road, with paved barrel-gut- 
ters, has been constructed to Warren street ; a portion of it 
requires binding and rolling only. The easterly roadway 




I- -o

Street Department. 11 

has been subgraded to Warren street, and constructed from 
Brighton avenue to Harvard avenue, with Telford macadam 
and paved barrel-gutters. 

A balance of $87,227.88 remains unexpended of an appro- 
priation of $170,000, which it was estimated would complete 
the avenue to Warren street, and which appears to be more 
than amply sufficient. The surplus may be used to coutinue 
the work beyond Warren street. 

The principal features of the work of the year may be 
summarized as follows : 

Paving with granite blocks, and regulating 35 streets, or 
parts of streets, in various districts. 

Construction of Telford macadam roadways on Common- 
wealth avenue, from Cottage-Farm bridge to Warren street ; 
on Talbot avenue, from Wells avenue to Washington street, 
and on Harvard avenue, Norway street, Parker street, and 
St. Germain street. 

Construction of sewers and grading upon Blue. Hill, Co- 
lumbus, Commonwealth extension, Huntington, and Brigh- 
ton avenues. 

Constructing three other macadam streets, under Chapter 
323 of the Acts of 1891, and commencing eight others. 

Setting 51,669 linear feet of new edgestone, and laying 
20,632 square yards of new brick sidewalks, and 12,295 
square yards of new granolithic sidewalks, besides resetting 
and regulating 113,806 linear feet of edgestone, and relaying 
72,360 square yards of brick sidewalk. 

Increasing our asphalt pavements by 17,933 square yards. 

The completion of Chelsea-street bridge ; the rebuilding of 
Chelsea, north, with new steel retractile draw ; the extension 
of the pier and widening of Cottage-Farm bridge, and the 
construction of Gold-street bridge. 

Building over 33 miles of sewers and 570 catch- basins and 
drop inlets, repairing 561 and cleaning 6,509 catch-basins, 
removing therefrom about 18,264 cubic yards of filthy 
material. 

Cleaning about 11,419 miles of streets, removing 122,544 
loads of dirt. 

Sprinkling 338.13 miles of streets during the season. 

Collecting and removing 336,886 loads of house-dirt and 
ashes. 

Collecting and removing 51,327 loads of house-oifal. 

During the year, work has been completed upon streets, 
five in number, previously laid out and commenced under 
Chapter 323 of 1891, etc., and work has been commenced 
and prosecuted upon eleven others, upon which construction 



12 City Document No. 29. 

has been ordered ; one only, Audubon road, has not been 
begun, as the date of the order (Nov. 7, 1895) made it im- 
practicable . 

The work begun last year upon Boylston-street extension 
has also been prosecuted. 

The report of the Executive Engineer, which follows, 
alludes to the work of the Central Office, and includes a state- 
ment of the general finances of the department, with appro- 
priations and expenditure from loans for special work, 
together with a valuable table of prices that obtained upon 
a contract basis.

Employment of Labor. 

During the year ending February 1, 1896, 122 applications 
were made upon the Civil Service Commission for 428 
employees of various grades, and 671 names were submitted 
by them, of which number 442 were given employment in 
the several divisions ; of the 442 persons employed, 36 were 
appointed provisionally (Civil Service, Rule 36), 5 were 
given non-competitive examinations, 2 promoted, and 93 
were veterans. 

During the year 131 persons were transferred to this 
department from other city departments ; making a total of 
573 persons employed during the year. 

Notices of 319 discharges from the department rolls were 
sent to the Commission. 

The department records show that there are 3,044 persons 
eligible for employment in the various divisions, and of that 
number 2,531 were upon the pay rolls on the week ending 
January 23, 1896. 

On July 1, 1895, the list of Ferry Division employees 
(195) was added to the department register. 

The following table shows the classification of all employees 
of the Street Department on the rolls January 23, 1896, as 
recorded by the Civil Service Clerk of the department :

BRIDGE DIVISION 



The total number of bridges in Boston in the care of the 
Bridge Division, not including culverts, is one hundred and 
thirteen. Thirty-four of these are wholly supported by rail- 
road corporations. Four — Harvard, Canal, Prison-Point, 
and West Boston bridges — all connecting Cambridge, are in 
the care of two commissioners, one appointed by the City of 
Cambridge, the Superintendent of Streets being the Boston 
Commissioner, ex-officio. The remainder, seventy- five in 
number, are supported, wholly or in part, by the City of 
Boston, and are in the care of this division, including 
twenty-three tide-water bridges, with draws, alone requiring 
for their operation seventy draw-tenders, assistant draw- 
tenders, and engineers. A complete and systematic record 
of the openings of the draw bridges, giving numbers and 
time of openings and other data, appears in Appendix A. 

The following table shows the amounts expended from the 
maintenance appropriation of the Bridge Division for the 
past five (5) years :

There has not been an accident or a break-down incon- 
veniencing public travel during the year. Charles-river 
bridge was closed to public travel from June 19 to Aug. 1, 
while extensive repairs, under the direction of the City Engi- 
neer, were made, and Mystic-river bridge, over that river 
and the B. & M. R.R. tracks, which has been closed to public 
travel during all of the "year previous to Jan. 1, '96, while in 
process of building, has been reopened to the public. Some- 
thing has been done toward modifying the smoke and hot- 
cinder nuisance, so very disagreeable to pedestrians, and 
often so disastrous to horses and vehicles on Broadway and 
the Dartmouth-street bridges, by the erection of a shield on 
either side of both these bridges, which has thus far given 
most satisfactory results. Broadway bridge, because of its 
very large span, has always been very dark at night until 



Street Department. 61 

this year. In cooperation with the Lamp Department, a large 
electric light has been placed in the exact centre of the draw 
by a device which works perfectly, permitting the opening 
of the draw without disconnecting the electric current, light- 
ing up not only the roadway, but the waterway as well, and 
proving a great convenience to navigation. 

Attention is again called to the necessity of proper head- 
quarters for the South District of this division, which is still 
located on Foundry street, in a small building which has to 
suffice as an office and storehouse, the stable and storehouse 
of the district having been entirely destroyed by the 
strengthening of Broadway Bridge nearly two years ago. 
A portion of a stable, situated some distance away, was leased 
as temporary quarters and has been occupied ever since. 
Proper accommodations are badly needed in order that sup- 
plies may be purchased in quantity and arrangement made 
to properly protect them and check their delivery, as well 
as for stable purposes. 

Of the bridges of greater importance but two are now 
operated by band-power — Maiden and Mount Washington- 
avenue — and one, Meridian-street, by horse-power ; rather 
primitive methods for these advanced times, and it is expedi- 
ent that these be added to the list of those now operated by 
electric motors, of which there are three — Chelsea North, 
Dover, and Federal street bridges; The others use steam, 
but experience indicates electricity to be the best from every 
standpoint. The cost of coal for engines is a very consider- 
able item in the expense of the division, while the cost of 
electricity is very trifling; the cost of repairs on engines far 
exceeds that on motors. There is the further consideration 
of space and cleanliness, all favorable to the motor. After 
making some inquiries, and investigation with reference to 
Warren bridge, it appears that complete electric power could 
be installed there for about $2,000. The boilers and engines 
could be sold, and a saving of about $700 per annum made 
on coal, and something additional saved on repairs, indicating 
a mistaken economy in retaining the engines. 

One bridge has been added to those in the care of the 
division — a temporary foot-bridge over the N. Y., N. H., & 
H. R..R.. at Roxbury Crossing, erected during the year at a 
cost of $981, charged to the maintenance account. 

Constructive work in the Bridge Division, for which money 
is provided by loan, has been of unusual proportions during 
the past year. The rebuilding of Chelsea-street bridge, com- 
menced last year, has been completed, and in addition to the 
work done by the B. & M. R.E., at Chelsea bridge, the draw 
over the North channel has been entirely rebuilt. Charles

river-bridge draw pier has been remodelled and rebuilt. 
Gold-street bridge abutments and iron superstruction have 
been completed, and Cottage Farm bridge is in process of 
construction. 

The amount of expenditures for permanent improvements 
from loans provided, has been as follows during the last five 
(5) years :

The following statement of the City Engineer contains the 
main features of the special work of construction assigned to 
him by this department for engineering supervision : 

City of Boston, Engineering Department, 

50 City Hall, January 31, 1896. 
Mr. B. T. Wheeler, Superintendent of Streets: 

Sir : I herewith submit the following report of the work 
done under my direction for the Bridge Division of the 
Street Department during the year 1895. 

The following are the principal items of work done : 

Charles-river Bridge. — A contract was made June 14, 
1895, with J. N. Hayes & Co., for repairing the draw and 
draw foundation. The cost of the entire work was $4,259 .51. 

Chelsea Bridge North. — May 23', 1895, a contract was 
made with Augustus Bellevue & Co. to rebuild the draw 
foundation, about fifty-four feet of bridge, and the wharf, 
and to lengthen the up-stream pier fifty feet, and the down- 
stream pier sixty feet ; under another contract the same firm 
rebuilt the wood-work of the bridge above the piles for a 
length of fifty-three feet. The draw has been replaced by a 
new steel draw of the retractile style, built by the Penn 
Bridge Company of Beaver Falls, Penn. ; it is operated by 
electricity, the motor being furnished by the General Elec- 
tric Company ; the draw has been in use since December 28, 
1895. The total cost of the work charged to this appopria- 
tion to February 1, 1896, was $33,827.'91. 

Chelsea-street Bridge. — As mentioned in the last annual 
report, the pile structure was rebuilt by B. F. Nay & Co., 
and the steel draw was built by the Boston Bridge Works. 
The bridge was opened to team-travel February 26, 1895. 
The cost of the contract-work on the pile bridge was 



Street Department. 63 

$15,241.53; on the steel draw, $8,450. The sheathing of 
the bridge and draw was done by the Bridge Division. 

Cottage Farm Bridge (over the Boston <& Albany Rail- 
road) . — During the past year the following work has been 
done on the northerly section of the bridge : The middle pier 
has been extended 210 feet 6 inches, and the parapets on the 
abutments set by David S. Crockett & Co., the stone for 
the parapets being furnished by the Cape Ann Granite Com- 
pany ; two steel girders have been built and set in position by 
the Boston Bridge Works ; 20-inch steel beams have been 
furnished by Page, Newell, & Co., but are not yet in place ; 
and hollow bricks and skewbacks have been furnished by 
the Boston Fire Proof Company. 

Gold-street Bridge. — Under an order from the Street 
Department, dated May 13, 1895, plans and specifications 
were prepared for a bridge over the tracks of the New York 
& New England Railroad at Gold street. 

A contract for the abutments was made with Frank H. 
Blaisdell, dated June 11, 1895, for the sum of $1,850, 
and subsequently an agreement was made with him for 
building two short return- walls at the ends of the west abut- 
ment. Work was begun July 1 and completed about Jan- 
uary 1. The total amount paid under these two agreements 
was $2,333.45. 

A contract was made with the Boston Bridge Works, dated 
June 11, 1895, for the superstructure of the bridge, for the 
sum of $1,570, and the work was completed January 20, 1896. 

This department was also requested to see that the work 
of raising the building on the northerly side of Gold street, 
adjoining the east abutment, was carried out in accordance 
with an agreement made by the Street Department with F. 
H. Blaisdell, dated September 18, 1895. This work was 
finished early in January, satisfactory to the Building Depart- 
ment, and a final estimate made January 24, 1896, for the 
sum of $2,082.37. 

West Newton-street Bulkhead. — A timber bulkhead was 
built across the end of West Newton street abutting on the 
line of the Boston & Albany Railroad, under a contract 
with A. Bellevue & Co., for the sum of $344. 

Temporary Foot-bridge at Roxbury Grossing. — A wooden 
foot-bridge was built over the tracks of the New York, New 
Haven, & Hartford Railroad at Roxbury Crossing, on Tre- 
mont street, under a contract with Josiah Shaw, dated June 
11, 1895, at a cost of $981. 

Yours respectfully, 
[Signed] William Jackson, 

City Engineer.

BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE BRIDGES. 



Canal or Craigie's Bridge. 

The sidewalk on the south side of the Cambridge end 
should have been rebuilt this year ; but not having sufficient 
appropriation to do the work in a thorough manner, it has 
been temporarily repaired. It will be necessary to rebuild 
it next year. 

The piles on the Cambridge end have been in place about 
100 years. They are now very much decayed on the upper 
part where the salt water does not reach them. The piles in 
four bents have been pieced out and new hard-pine girders 
and trusses have been firmly bolted to them. 

The current repairs have been made, such as painting and 
sheathing the draw', cleaning roadway and sidewalks ; and 
repairs on boiler and machinery to move the draw. 

The above work has been attended to by the men on the 
bridge. The roadway of the bridge has been watered with 
salt water., 

Harvard Bridge. 

The roadway has been replanked for the entire length of 
the bridge with 2-inch spruce plank, costing $1,519.41 for 
each city. 

It will be necessary to do this work every year. 

The West End Street Railway Company replanked the 
space between their tracks with 3-inch spruce, which makes 
a much smoother surface for travel than the 2-inch plank 
did which was formerly there. 

The asphalt sidewalks are in poor condition and are to be 
relaid next summer by the contractors, at theii expense, in 
accordance with the terms of the contracts, which require 
them to keep the sidewalks in good repair for five years. 

The iron-work on this bridge is in bad condition from 
rust. It will have to be painted in 1896. 

The men employed on the bridge have done all the clean- 
ing without extra cost to the two cities. They also clean all 
the lamps and make all small repairs. 

Prison-Point Bridge. 

The draw on this bridge is in very bad condition. It is 
almost impossible to raise it. It is not proposed to expend 



66 City Document No. 29. 

much money on the bridge at the present time, as the grade 
crossing of the Boston & Maine Railroad at this point is to 
be abolished. A commission has been appointed, and the 
proposed changes include a new highway bridge and draw 
built at a higher grade. It is expected that the work will 
be completed within three years. 

Current repairs have been attended to, such as planking 
and sheathing draw, etc. 

West Boston Bridge. 

In October a portion of the bridge near the draw on the 
Cambridge side commenced settling. It was found that the 
piles in three bents, or sections, had settled about five inches 
and were still going down. Twelve new piles were driven : 
five in one section, four in another, and three in another. 
The work was done from the top of the bridge, taking one 
side at a time, by placing a scow on the outside of the 
bridge with an engine on it with the pile-driver on the 
bridge. The work was done without interruption to travel, 
and without frightening horses, as would have been done if 
the engine/had been placed on the bridge in the usual 
manner, v 

After driving the piles from above, the work was finished 
under the bridge by bolting extra girder caps to the piles 
that were driven. Sixty-six braces, 3 X 12 spruce, 20 and 
25 feet long, we^e firmly secured to piles distributed in dif- 
ferent bents, •v^-^ 

The wheel-guard on both sides of the draw, the entire 
length, has been renewed with hard pine-timber. On the 
side of the wheel-guard, an iron plate 4 inches wide 
£ inches thick, has been bolted to the timber for the whole 
length of the draw to protect the wood-work and to keep 
teams from injuring the draw. 

The bridge is very weak in places. It has to bear a great 
strain when the ice is breaking up in the spring. Next year 
it will need a thorough repairing, and possibly more piles 
will have to be driven. 

When this bridge was rebuilt it was not expected there 
would be such an amount of travel over it as there is at 
the present time, especially such heavy teaming and such 
heavy electric cars. The spaces between bents of piles are 
18 and 19 feet, and they should be not more than 16 feet. 

The men on the bridge do the ordinary repairs, looking 
after the cleaning, keep the machinery for moving the draw 
in good condition, their engine-house clean, and do all paint- 
ing 1 of wood and iron work on the draw and house. 



Street Department.

The roadway of the bridge has been watered with salt 
water. 

The West End Street Railway Company relaid their track 
the entire length of the bridge in October, and, in so doing, 
relaid the paving on the sides of the rails in a satisfactory 



manner. 



In General. 



The usual statement is appended of the number of draw 
openings and the number of vessels which passed through, 
also table showing the traffic over bridges in September. 

The amount of revenue received for rents, dockage, 
repairs to West End Street Railway Company's tracks, etc., 
during the year, has been $2,303.70, one-half, $1,151.85, has 
been paid to each city.

FERRY DIVISION. 



On July 1, 1895, the Ferry Department was consoli- 
dated with the Street Department, and has been operated 
since that time as the Ferry Division, with a Deputy Super- 
intendent in charge. Of the seven ferry-boats belonging to 
the division, six are in active use each week-day : three at 
the North and three at the South Ferry ; one is kept as a 
spare boat; three are used on Sundays — two at the North 
and one at the South Ferry. 

The following table shows the amount expended for main- 
tenance by the Ferry Division for the last five (5) years : 



1891 (13 months)

211,567 19 

213,746 76 

212,988 13 

209,911 30 



The boats of the division are from twenty-five to five years 
of age, and while their condition is good, each one of them 
having been thoroughly overhauled and painted during the 
past year, they should unquestionably lie taken out, stripped, 
calked, and coppered, as some of them have not been out 
of the water for nine years. One of them, the "Ben Frank- 
lin," has been built up twelve (12) inches, in order to fit the 
drops, and the "East Boston," although five years old, has 
been first put in commission this year. 

The head-house at the South Ferry, East Boston side, is 
not a credit to the city, especially as to its sanitary arrange- 
ments, which have been complained of by the Board of 
Health ; and the coal-shed at this place is old, and its fall is 
not unlikely at any time. 

The improvement in the service and equipment since 
May 1, 1895, the cost of which has been charged to mainten- 
ance, may be here referred to. A third boat has been oper- 
ated at the North Ferry, as it had been apparent for some 
time that it was necessary for the proper service of the pub- 
lic, and it has been run every day except Sundays, from 7 
A.M. to 7 P.M., entailing an additional expenditure from 
maintenance of some $8,000. 

The spare dock on the South Ferry, East Boston side, has 
been dredged at an expense of $600. This dock is used to 



Street Department. 71 

haul off boats that are to undergo repairs, and there was so 
little water in it at low tide that the boats rested on the bot- 
tom. One of the boats ("East Boston") was never in this 
dock, as it was unsafe to put her in there, and she always 
had to be laid at an outside wharf. 

Passenger supplementary drops have been put in on South 
Ferry on both sides, same as at North Ferry, at a cost of 
about $1,200. These were needed very badly, and should 
have been put in years ago, as their absence has undoubtedly 
been the cause of many accidents and subsequent payment of 
damage. 

Another improvement was the running of the second boat at 
North Ferry at night, until 12 o'clock. Forme rly it stopped 
at 11 o'clock, thereby discommoding hundreds of people. 

By order of United States Steamboat Inspectors, the life- 
boats have been removed from over the wheel-houses to for- 
ward end of canopies on all of the boats, and a skiff, with 
water-tight compartments, has been put on each end of can- 
opies on ladies' side, so now each boat is equipped with a 
life-boat and two skiff's. These have cost about $700. 

The drops and piers at both ferries have been equipped 
with electric lights, superseding the old-fashioned lanterns 
and gas. This is one of the greatest improvements that could 
have been made at small expense, and it has proved an un- 
qualified success. 

During the year a pass system has been introduced on the 
ferries, principally for the purpose of obtaining an account 
of the number of teams and foot-passengers carried free, but 
also to restrict as far as possible the unwarranted free use of 
the boats. Return is now made by gatemen and collectors, 
of travel of this class, amounting to 2,406 teams in seven 
months, and 13,077 foot-passengers in three months, the 
time during which this method has been in operation. 

The constructive work, which is paid for from loans pro- 
vided for permanent improvements, has not been large during 
the year ; the remodelling of the " East Boston " has been com- 
pleted, and a new drop constructed for the South Ferry and 
put in place. 

The amount of expenditure from loans provided for per- 
manent improvements during the last five (5) years has 
been as follows :

The following statement of the City Engineer contains the 
main features of the special work of construction assigned to 
him by this department for engineering supervision : 

City of Boston, Engineering Department, 

50 City Hall, January 31, 1895. 

Mr. B. T. Wheeler, Superintendent of Streets: 

Sir : I herewith submit the following report of the work 
done under my direction for the Ferry Division of the 
Street Department during the year 1894. 

North Ferry Pier. — March 27, 1895, a contract was made 
with W. H. Ellis & Co., for extending the middle pier at 
the East Boston side of the North Ferry. The pier was ex- 
tended 30 feet at a cost for contract work of $1,775.60. 

New Drop. — A contract was made by the Superintendent 
of Ferries, June 20, 1895, with William McKie, to build 
a new ferry drop to replace the old one at the southerly side 
of the Boston landing of the South Ferry for $5,611. The 
old drop was delivered to the Ferry Division, its machinery 
being removed to the new drop, and the necessary changes 
of the foundation and landing being made. 

Yours Repectfully, 

[Signed] William Jackson, 

City Engineer. 

An increase in the receipts of this year over last, results 
from an increase of foot-passengers .carried of 648,469, and 
of teams, 30,270, and amounts to $14,084.66. 

Details of expenditure, income, and table of travel will 
be found in Appendix B.

80 City Document No. 29. 

The following statement of the City Engineer contains the 
main features of the special work of construction assigned to 
him by this department for engineering supervision : 

City of Boston, Engineering Department, 

50 City Hall, January 81, 1896. 
Mr. B. T. Wheeler, Superintendent of Streets: 

Sir : I herewith submit the following report of the work 
done under my direction for the Paving Division of the 
Street Department during the year 1895. 

The work done is similar to that heretofore, with the 
addition of a large amount of work upon the five main ave- 
nues, the construction of which was authorized by the Leg- 
islature of 1895, Chapters 268 and 334, referring back to 
Chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891 ; namely, Blue Hill avenue, 
Columbus-avenue extension, Huntington avenue, Common- 
wealth-avenue extension, and Brighton avenue. These acts 
require the construction of sewers, gas, and water pipes in 
each avenue, with house connections for all abutting lots. 
The construction of these, together with other miscellaneous 
structures, such as water-main pipes, underground wires, 
and surface drains, intended to forestall the necessity for 
breaking up the surface of the finished street, require a large 
amount of labor to be performed before the surfacing of 
the street can be commenced. 

In these avenues, a very large amount of this preliminary 
work has been done. Early in the year estimates were 
made of the cost of construction of these avenues, exclusive 
of sewers and land damages, upon a definite plan, and such 
rough grading as could be done in advance of. sewer con- 
struction was commenced then as fast as the sewer construc- 
tion was completed ; contracts were made for grading. The 
work of grading has been in progress during the winter, and 
with a single exception, all the rough grading contemplated 
at present is under contract and should be completed by 
June 1, 1896. The exception referred to consists of about 
20,000 cubic yards of surplus material on Blue Hill avenue 
opposite Franklin park. A part of this material can be 
used to supply a deficiency in Columbus avenue, and it is 
probable that the remainder can be used for contemplated 
improvements in the near vicinity. 

Blue Hill Avenue. 

The portion of the avenue laid out under the act com- 
mences at Washington street or Grove Hall, and follows the 
course of the old Blue Hill avenue to the Neponset river at

Mattapan, a distance of 2.86 miles, nearly in a straight line. 
The part between Washington and Walk Hill streets, a dis- 
tance of 2.21 miles, has been ordered to be constructed. 
The part under construction borders on Franklin Park for a 
distance of 2,670 feet, and Franklin Field, a distance of 1,340 
feet. It is 120 feet wide throughout, and will be built for the 
greater part of its length with two roadways, each 32.5 
feet wide, a central reservation 25 feet wide for street-cars, 
and two sidewalks, each 15 feet wide. The sidewalk will 
have a loamed space 5 feet in width next the roadway, and 
the central reservation will be loamed and grassed. 

In front of Franklin Park this construction will be varied 
and provision made for easy access to the park. The road- 
ways are to be built of Telford macadam, with paved 
o-utters, but with ed«;estone from Washington street to the 
circle at Talbot avenue only. Ten contracts for rough grad- 
ing have been made, seven of which are not completed at 
this date. One of these contracts includes the road con- 
struction opposite the main entrance to Franklin Park, and 
calls for completion of this section by August 1, 1896. 

Provision has been made for saving all stone suitable for 
use in constructing roadways, but a large part of the rock 
excavated is of such inferior quality as to be only suitable 
for filling. The estimated quantities of grading to be done 
under these contracts, and the corresponding cost of doing 
the work, is as follows : 

Earth excavation . . 100,796.77 cubic yards. 

Hock excavation . . 28,600 cubic yards. 

The average prices to be paid are as follows : 

Earth excavation . . $0,356 per cubic yard. 

Rock excavation . . 1.023 per cubic yard. 

The total amount paid to contractors for work done to 
February 1, 1896, is $18,663.35. 

Columbus Avenue Extension. 

This avenue extends from Northampton street to Frank 
lin Park, by the way of Poxbury Crossing, along Pynchon to 
Centre street, then through vacant land to and across Wash- 
ington street and by way of Seaver street to Franklin Park, — 
a total distance of 2.21 miles. It is generally 80 feet wide, 
and is to be built without a special reservation for a street 
railway. The section between Poxbury Crossing and Hog 
bridge is about 3,105 feet in length and includes the pres- 



82 City Document No. 29. 

ent and prospective site of Stony brook ; the improvement 
of the brook will necessarily precede the construction of the 
road, and, with the exception of the removal of the buildings, 
filling cellars, etc., no work has been or can he done at 
present. It is intended to pave this section with granite 
blocks. From Roxbuiy Crossing to the old part of the 
avenue, the roadway will be of asphalt. From Centre street 
to the park the roadway will be of Telford macadam. The 
only work done by this department has been the rough grading 
between Washington and Centre streets. A considerable 
part of the avenue will be in readiness for road-making on 
the opening of the working season, and with the exception of 
the Pynchon street sec! ion the work will be practically 
finished during 1896. 

Huntington Avenue. 

This avenue extends from Cople}^ square, along the line of 
the old avenue to Tremont street, and thence follows the 
former location of Tremont street to the Brookline line, at 
the Parkway, a distance of 2.25 miles. From Copley square 
to Massachusetts avenue, a distance of 3,240 feet, the boun- 
dary lines are unchanged, but the avenue will be rebuilt with 
a reserved space 25 feet wide for street cars, two roadways, 
paved with granite blocks, each 25 feet wide, and two side- 
walks, paved with bricks, each 12^ feet wide. From Mass- 
achusetts avenue to Tremont street, a distance of 1.15 miles, 
the avenue is widened to 100 feet, laid out in the same man- 
ner and built with Telford macadam roadways and gravel 
sidewalks. The part of Tremont street renamed Huntington 
avenue, 2,563 feet in length, has been widened to a general 
width of 80 feet. In this section there will be no reservation 
for street-cars. Roadways will be built of Telford macadam, 
and the sidewalks, which will be 13 feet wide, will be built 
of gravel. The preliminary underground work is well ad- 
vanced on this avenue, and it is expected that the surfacing 
can be begun early in the- season. The work done by this 
department was the resetting of the edgestones and the reg- 
ulating of. the sidewalks on the northerly side, between 
Copley square and Massachusetts avenue, and the depositing 
of about 10,000 cubic yards of filling between Gainsborough 
street and Long wood avenue. This will not complete the 
tilling between these points, and the balance of about 15,000 
cubic yards will be supplied from the surplus on the remain- 
ing parts of the avenue. The gravel filling referred to is 
being furnished for $0.79f per cubic yard, and the work will 
be completed in February, 1896. 



Street Department. 83 

Brighton Avenue. 

This avenue extends from Commonwealth avenue to Union 
square, Allston, a length of 0.67 miles. It is 100 feet wide, 
and will be built with a central reservation 25 feet in width 
for a street railway, two roadways, the northerly one 30 feet 
wide and the southerly one 25 feet wide, and two sidewalks 
each 10 feet wide. The roadways are to be built of Telford 
macadam . 

Preliminary underground work is well advanced and the 
surfacing is under contract, conditioned to be completed on 
September 1, 1896. Amount paid to contractors for grading, 
t<> February 1, 1896, is $2,467.63. 

Commonwealth Avenue Extension. 

Commonwealth avenue has been extended from Chestnut 
Hill avenue, Brighton, to the Newton line, there connecting 
with the Newton boulevard; the extension is 0.71 mile in 
length and 120 feet in width. It is to be built with a central 
reservation 25 feet in width for a street railway, two road- 
ways, the northerly one 25 feet wide and the southerly one 
40 feet wide, and the two sidewalks each 15 feet wide. The 
roadways are to be built of Telford macadam. Four con- 
tracts for rough, grading have been let, one of which is still 
unfinished. A large quantity of excellent stone for road 
construction has been found, and there will be a considerable 
surplus of stone and of loam available for other avenues. 
Trap rock of excellent quality is now being delivered at the 
city stone-crusher near by, and is being crushed and piled 
for future use. Eleven thousand one hundred and fifty cubic 
yards of surplus filling has been delivered on the adjoining 
section of Commonwealth avenue. The rough grading, 
including rock excavation, will be completed early in the 
season, and it is expected that the underground work can be 
completed in time to allow of the entire completion of the 
avenue during 1896. The total amount of earth excavation 
is estimated at 35,732 cubic yards, and of rock excavation 
at 9,200 cubic yards. Earth excavated and delivered within 
three-quarters of a mile has cost an average of $0,284 per 
cubic yard; earth delivered on the adjoining section of 
Commonwealth avenue, hauled about one mile, has cost 
$0,228 extra per cubic yard for hauling. Rock excavation, 
including breaking, hauling, and piling, has cost an average 
of $1.30 per cubic yard measured in the cut. The total sum 
paid to the contractors for grading, to February 1, 1896, is 
$14,070.79. 

The table showing lengths and areas of paving on accepted 



84 City Document No. 29. 

streets has been carefully revised and compared with the 
list of streets in Boston, published by the Street Commis- 
sioners. As has been before stated, there is and can be no 
complete and authoritative list of public streets in Boston. 
The older streets have become public in many instances 
without record, and frequently the status of streets and alley- 
ways has been questioned in the interest of abutters. The 
manuscript list in this office, and from which the table has 
been made, is as nearly complete as it can be made at this 
date. In this connection it should be stated that 3,600 
square yards of asphalt pavement, commenced (the concrete 
base only being laid) in 1894 and completed in 1895, have 
been credited to 1894 in the tables. 

Block-stone pavement has been laid with concrete 6 inches 
thick with a cushion coat of sand about 1 ^-inches thick. 
The material used for filling joints, adopted by the Street 
Department, was pebbles and Portland cement grout. The 
cement grout has been mixed with sand in varying quantities 
for experimental purposes. The proportion of one part cement 
to one-fourth part of fine house sand was found to give the 
best results, and was adopted for most of the work done. 
The quantity of cement used varied greatly on different jobs, 
the average of all work so done being 9.94 square yards of 
pavement per cask of cement, at a cost for cement of $0,231 
per square yard. The cost of filling joints in this manner 
has been about $0.20 less than the' sum paid in 1894 for pitch 
and pebble joints. 

Street paving, on old and new streets, has been supervised 
in all cases where requested, and the following quantities 
have been laid under contracts supervised by this depart- 
ment : 

Block-stone pavement, on a concrete base, laid with Port- 
land cement grout joints, 14,428 square yards, at an average 
cost of about $4.25 per square yard. 

Block-stone pavement, on a gravel base, laid with Portland 
cement grout joints, 11,405.6 square yards, at an average 
cost of about $3.10 per square yard. 

Block-stone pavement, on a gravel base, laid with gravel 
joints, 13,579 square yards, at an average cost of about 
$2.75 per square yard. 

Trinidad sheet asphalt, with a binder course of asphaltic 
cement concrete, on an American cement concrete base, 
10,639.3 square yards, at an average cost of about $3.65 per 
square yard. 

Sicilian rock asphalt, on an American cement concrete 
base, 7,293.7 square yards, at an average cost of about $3.65 
per square yard.

Street Openings. 

A fertile source of annoyance to the travelling public, the 
real-estate owner and this department, is the subject of 
street openings. The recent acts by which streets are con- 
structed and assessed upon the abutters, provide that service- 
pipes for sewer, water, and gas shall be laid to the sidewalk 
line, and that the street shall not be again opened for the 
space of two years, "except in case of obvious necessity." 
An ordinance of the city of Boston provides that when about 
to construct or resurface a street, the Superintendent shall 
give notice to all persons authorized to place any structure 
in such street, and after the completion of the work shall not 
permit an opening to be made therein for the space of one 
year, "except in case of obvious necessity." 

It is apparent at once that the construction of the words 
'obvious necessity" must be a much disputed subject. 

There is still a larger number of streets which have no 
legislative protection, but whose constant reopening and 
repair of surface thereafter is a continual drain upon the 
public treasury. 

The landholder, who is about to construct a building, and 
who claims not to have seen the published notice, requires 
water, gas, and sewer connections, and while in most cases 
he has been careless or indifferent in providing himself with 
these necessities to a tenantable building, the blame is usu- 
ally charged to the contractor or to some one for whom the 
owner does not feel personally responsible ; and a claim is 
made that no encouragement is given for the development of 
property and increased taxation if the owner is compelled to 
hold his property useless for a year or a portion thereof. 

There is a certain claim of right in this, and it may be said 
that real-estate owners have a right to these necessities at all 
reasonable seasons of the year ; granted that such openings 
should be permitted in a newly surfaced street, some method 
other than those at present in vogue must be employed to 
protect the department and the tax- payer against increased 
outlay and expense on this account. The difficulty is not 
that the corporation or persons so opening cannot, but that 
they do not replace the pavement in as good condition as 
when originally laid. 

The remedy, then, seems to be, that every party, having 
the right to open the streets, be required to make a deposit 
with the City Treasurer, upon which this department may 
draw for the expense in making the pavement good with its 
own force, and that this deposit be renewed from time to 
time as required by the department, no permit being issued 



Street Department. 107 

until such deposit is made. This, in itself, would have a 
salutary effect in causing the exercise of greater care in com- 
plying with the regulations of the department, and would 
make it possible to restore the surface to its original con- 
dition without expense to the department and the public. 

In an attempt with the authority the department now has 
to get the best results possible from the work of the com- 
panies opening the streets, the following regulations and 
instructions were issued : 

CITY OF BOSTON. 

Street Department — Paving Division. 

Instructions for Inspectors. 

Inspectors are to be appointed by the Superintendent of Streets, and 
are to have charge, under the direction of the Deputy Superintendent 
of the Paving Division, of all -openings made in, and obstructions of, 
the public streets of the City of Boston, by coi-porations having the 
right to lay, maintain, or repair rails, wires, pipes, or conduits therein. 

Inspectors are to be paid by the corporation whose work they have 
in charge at the rate of $3.00 per day of nine hours. When their ser- 
vices are required for ten hours, they are to receive 30 cents for the 
tenth hour; for all time over this, and for all work on Sundays and 
holidays, they are to receive " time and a half, 1 ' or 45 cents per hour. 
When corporations are excavating trenches over time, they will not 
require the service of an Inspector; but when they are back-filling or 
surfacing the street, the Inspector must be present. 

The Inspector must make a daily report, in writing, to the Deputy 
Superintendent of the Paving Division of the work of which he is in 
charge; and he must also be on. his work from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. 
There is to be only one Inspector on a trench, and he is to be held 
responsible for the condition of the trench. 

In the refilling of trenches the best of the excavated material is to 
be carefully replaced in the trenches, and thoroughly consolidated by 
ramming. 

Paved Streets. — The trenches are to be refilled and paved to an even 
longitudinal grade, and in case this method leaves any sags or depres- 
sions in the existing roadway, within a distance of ten feet from the 
side of the trench, such sags are to be taken up and repaired with 
material of the same character and quality. If any of the paving stones 
are broken, or are unfit for use, they must be replaced with large 
granite blocks of the standard specifications of the Street Department. 

Macadam Streets. — The trenches are to be refilled to an even longi- 
tudinal grade, and all macadam material is to be replaced on top of 
the trench ; and in case the macadam has been wasted, or is insufficient 
to make a depth of eight inches, new crushed stone is to be furnished. 
In case this method leaves sags or depressions in the present roadway, 
within a distance of ten feet from the side of the trenches, such sags 
are to be refilled with crushed stone, and the whole surface of the trench 
and the sags which have been refilled are to be covered with gravel 
binder, thoroughly wet down, and rolled to a hard, uniform surface. 

The above directions apply also to gravel streets, except that a good 
quality of coarse gravel shall be used instead of broken stone. 

The above directions apply to all ordinary work ; and inspectors are 
to carefully examine all permits that are granted for opening trenches, 



108 City Document No. 29. 

in order to see whether they contain special instructions for doing the 
work ; and in case such special instructions are given, the Inspectors 
are to see that they are carefully followed. 

The Inspectors can allow parties opening streets under a permit to 
tunnel under crossings ; but after the pipes are laid and the back-filling 
commences, the Inspectors must see that the tunnel is broken down, 
and the crossings carefully relaid. 

In case any corporation refuses to obey these instructions, the In- 
spector on the work is to take the permit, and report to the Deputy 
Superintendent of the Paving Division ; and this shall be a revocation 
of the company's right to open the streets. 

B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets. 

Boston, June 5, 1895. 

Twenty thousand four hundred and forty eight (20,448) 
permits were granted during the past year to open streets. 
The excavations made under these permits aggregate 266.4 
miles in length, and show the extent of this work. 

The Street Department has been accustomed to grant to 
the various gas and other companies, whose work would in 
certain cases admit of no delay, a so-called " emergency 
permit," which allowed excavations to be made without 
special permission being obtained, the only requirement 
being that a daily return of openings made under this form 
of permit should be forwarded to the office of the superin- 
tendent. 

Five thousand and ninty four (5,094) openings of an 
average lenoth of six feet each were made under " emer- 
gency permits" for breaks in water and gas pipes which 
were alleged to require immediate attention. These open- 
ings were made under 106 permits. 

In addition to the above permits, various other permits 
have been issued to pedlers, mechanics, and others, for 
different purposes, fifteen thousand eight hundred and thirty 
six (15,836) in number; making the total number of per- 
mits issued thirty six thousand two hundred and eighty four 
(36,284). 

Smoke Nuisance. 

A review of the work of the past year, in enforcing the 
statutes for the abatement of the smoke nuisance in the City 
of Boston shows very good results not alone in the adoption 
of many patent devices and the use of smokeless fuels, but 
since the passage of the new law, operative on July 1, 1895, 
owners of estate have shown a very liberal spirit in the 
matter. This is mainly due to the persistent work of the 
observers and the almost constant patrolling of the city, which 
is divided into districts, more especially the congested or 
business portion. This section of the city has been receiving 



Street Department. 109 

special attention, the observers patrolling some part of it 
every day, and so familiar have they become with the condi- 
tion and location of the various stacks that any slight change 
is immediately noticed and steps are at once taken to find 
out the causes. This diligence on the part of the observers 
has resulted in the discovery of two places using a cheap 
and inferior grade of fuel, presumely on trial. • 

It was formerly the custom to bring the complaints to the 
attention of the engineer in an effort to keep them within 
bounds, but of late these complaints have been brought 
directly to the attention of the owners, and frequent visits 
have resulted in changes which have been very beneficial to 
the community and in the direction of economy. 

While the work performed by the observers and the fre- 
quent visits to the owners has had a most salutary effect, and 
tends to keep in check a great deal of carelessness hereto- 
fore exhibited by the stokers, yet the increased consumption 
of coal, made so by the additional demands on the plant, and 
in some cases, the addition of work beyond the capacity of 
the boilers, makes the usefulness of the patrol system more 
and more pronounced. 

During the past year 11 complaint notices were served and 
12 inspections made, making a total of 330 notices served 
and 312 inspections completed. This shows 18 more notices 
served than inspections made, which may be classified as fol- 
lows : Error, 1 ; duplicates, 2 ; refused to give information, 
3 ; moved or closed down, 12. 

In the latter part of 1894, it was very evident that the 
law of 1893, Chap. 353, entitled "An Act to Abate the 
Smoke Nuisance in Large Cities," was very lenient, and to 
say the least, somewhat inoperative, in view of which the 
matter was taken up by many merchants doing business in 
the central section of the city, who were affected by the then 
existing smoke nuisances, and a bill embodying their ideas 
was submitted to the Legislature of 1895, and was referred 
to the Committee on Cities. After a two days' hearing, the 
Merchants Association, being represented by Hon. A. E. 
Pillsbury, the soft coal dealers and consumers by Mr. E. W. 
Burdett, and the ChVy of Boston by Corporation Counsel A. 
J. Bailey, the committee reported a bill — House Document, 
No. 1048 — now known as Chap. 389, entitled "An Act to 
Abate the Smoke Nuisance in the City of Boston." This 
Act was signed by the Governor in the latter part of May, 
to take effect July 1 . 

Immediately following the passage of said Act, the chief 
inspector waited upon the owners or representatives of a num- 
ber of boiler plants that were likely to become amenable to 



1 10 City Document No. 29. 

the law, sooner or later, when the demand on their plant 
should happen to be increased, and called their attention to 
the new law, and of the intention of this department to 
strictly enforce the same. 

The success of this method of notification was very grati- 
fying, as in nearly every case visited a disposition was shown 
to comply with the law, either by the adoption of a smoke- 
consuming device or a change of fuel ; in some cases it 
simply requiring a closer attention to the boilers, and a 
change in the method of firing by the stoker. In some 
instances the owners were willing to subject themselves to 
considerable expense, that they might, as law-abiding citi- 
zens, contribute to the public comfort and general cleanliness 
of the city. 

The boiler plants, the owners or representatives of which 
have been interviewed in relation to the new law, are as

Of the above, the Cobb Boston Tea Company, City Hos- 
pital (new), J. W. Dammerall, Moulton Cafe, Pigott & Son, 
C. M. Priest, G. W. Sammett & Son, and United States 
Hotel Company, adopted the use of hard coal. Smoke-con- 
suming devices were adopted by the following : Boston Globe, 
Briggs, Hoffman, & Co., Dwinnell, Wright, & Co., Guyer 
Hat Company, Hollis Cold Storage, Houghton & Dutton, 
Hut-chins Church Organ Company, Krey & Co., H. & J. 
Pfaff, A. W . Perry, Rich Building, Nathan Robbins estate, 
Sears estate, 41 Arch street, Shepard, Norwell, & Co., R. H. 
White & Co., and G. W. Young. 

H. & J. Pfaff and Shepard, Norwell, & Co. were equipped 
with a fire brick arch furnace, known as the " Central Draft 
Furnace," and in both plants the device was short-lived. 
G. W. Young, who burns mainly shavings, equipped his 
plant of two boilers with the " Lord Device," a steam and 
air arrangement, and the device not proving satisfactory has 
since been ordered out. Smith's Brewery, Marginal street, 
East Boston, was equipped with the " Andrews Hot Air 
Device," and a recent visit to the plant found it burned out. 
A. W. Perry, Sullivan place, was equipped with a patent 
deflector inserted in the smoke-flue, and the same has been 
recently taken out. 

In addition to the above work, the observers were noti- 
fied to report all upright boilers used by contractors, if 
burning soft coal. When these were found on principal 
thoroughfares, the owners attention was called to the new 
law, and also to the menace and nuisance likely to exist, and 
they invariably adopted the use of hard coal, that being 
particularly adapted to the upright type. Among these 
notified were the three subway contractors, Messrs. Jones & 
Meehan, Mr. Eversonand Mr. Shaw, John S. Jacobs & Son, 
C. H. Williams, and Mr. Carson, Chief Engineer of the 
Boston Transit Commission.

Observations. 

A large number of short observations, covering only a few 
firings, have been taken by the observers on various plants 
throughout the city since the passage of the new law, with a 
view of getting violators of the five-minute clause. When a 
violation is found, the attention of the boiler-plant owner is 
called to it, and assurances are received that the matter will 
receive his earliest attention. Other observations have been 
made at the request of boiler-plant owners, who having 
equipped their plant with devices, and before accepting the 
same, wished the city to pass upon them. These latter 
observations with reports are on file. 

Nova Scotia Coal. 

The following table shows the number of tons and value 
of importations of Nova Scotia coal recorded at the port of 
Boston for the year ending Jan. 31, 1896, no coal being 
received from Feb. 1 to July 31.

Apparently this coal in the main is sold outside the city 
limits, and the few plants in this city who have been found 
using it are located in out-of-the-way places, and are mixing 
it with hard coal screenings. 

Eegulations covering Permits for New Boilers. 

As a result of our standing objection, filed with the Build- 
ing Departmemt, 135 boiler applications have been received 
and disposed of as follows :

this department or objections overruled by the Board of 
Appeal. (Chap. 419, Acts of 1892.)

SANITARY DIVISION 



The work of the Sanitary Division includes the removal 
of house-offal and the removal of house and store dirt and 
ashes, accumulated from the burning of materials for heating 
buildings and for domestic purposes. 

The following table shows the amounts expended for the 
maintenance of the Sanitary Division for the past five (5) 
years : 



1891 (13 months) 

1892 

1893 

1894

469,370 74 
481,300 63 
467,459 02 

432,778 52 



But few complaints have been received concerning the 
failure of the division to promptly remove offal and ashes ; 
investigation of these has usually shown that either offal has 
not been properly separated from ashes or other refuse, as is 
insisted upon by the department, or else that the receptacles 
were deposited in some inaccessible place, or were larger 
than the ordinances provide and the regulations of the depart- 
ment permit. 

In order that householders might understand these regu- 
lations, and that easy access would be given employees to 
the receptacles, and the work not unnecessarily delayed, the 
following circular was issued : 



CITY OF BOSTON". 
Street Department — Sanitary Division. 

Notice to Householders. 

Attention is called to the following sections of the revised ordinances 
of the City of Boston : 

CHAPTER 43. 

Sect. 14. No person shall keep in his house, or on his land, any 
house-offal, unless the same is placed in a suitable vessel, free from 
ashes and other refuse matter, and so placed as to be easily removed. 

Sect. 17. No person shall place or keep, in or near any building, 
ashes or cinders in such a manner as to be liable to cause fire, nor mix 
them with other substances, nor place or keep them except in metallic 
vessels, so placed as to be easily removed. 



Street Department. 117 

The regulations of this department require that all receptacles for 
ashes or offal, shall be placed either at the curbstone or in an easily 
accessible place on the level of the lot on which the building stands. 

Employees of this department are not supposed to enter cellars, cellar- 
ways, areas, or bulkheads, for the removal of ashes or offal. 

The use of receptacles larger than an ordinary flour barrel is strictly 
prohibited. 

B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets. 

During the past few years the shops of the division at the 
South Yard had been almost entirely discontinued. These 
have now been reestablished with competent mechanics upon 
the same basis as any journeyman shop in the city, and the 
repairs and some constructive work of this and other divi- 
sions has been done cheaply and well. 

To the operation of these shops and the methods estab- 
lished there, is due in large measure the decreased expense 
of operating this as well as other divisions of the depart- 
ment. These consist of a wheelwright and blacksmith shop, 
paint shop, harness shop, and horse-shoeing shop, and a 
statement of the work performed will be found later in Ap- 
pendix D. 

The following table shows the number of loads of offal 
collected and removed in the last five (5) years, since re- 
6rganization as a division by the Street Department :

1893 ...... 51,415 

1894 50,637 

1895 . . . . . . 51,327 



Each load of offal is equivalent to fifty-seven (57) cubic 
feet and has a maximum weight of one and one-half (1|-) tons 
tons at certain seasons of the year. 

The above table does not include previous to the year 
1893 the amount collected by contract in East Boston and 
Brighton, which amounted to about 5,100 loads per year. 
Of the amount (51,327 loads) collected during the year 
1895, 3,732 loads were collected by the East Boston con- 
tractor, 1,419 loads were collected by the Brighton contrac- 
tor, and 4,179 loads Avere collected by the Dorchester 
contractor, and 517 loads were collected by the West Rox- 
bury contractor, leaving 41,480 loads collected by city teams. 

The collection of this material is attended to in winter by 
an average regular force of 77 city offal carts and 169 men, 
and on contract work 16 offal carts and 32 men ; making a, 



118 



City Document No. 29. 



total of 93 offal carts and 201 men. At different times, and 
especially in summer, an approximate extra force of 21 
teams and 42 men are employed. 

The disposal has been made during the year in the follow- 
ino; manner : The offal from the markets, and offal that is 
decayed, is put on board a scow and towed to sea ; the offal 
of Charlestown is taken to the yard at Maiden bridge and 
there disposed of to farmers ; the offal of East Boston is 
collected by contractors, and is removed to Revere ; the 
offal of the City Proper and South Boston is conveyed to 
the yard at the South End, and disposed of to farmers, who 
remove it daily ; the offal of Roxbury and a part of West 
Roxbury is conveyed to the yard on Highland street, and 
disposed of to farmers ; a portion of the collections of West 
Roxbury is collected by contract and removed to Needham ; 
the offal of Brighton is collected by contract and disposed 
of outside of the district ; the offal in Dorchester, commenc- 
ing January 21, 1895, was delivered to the New England 
Construction Company, at its plant on Gibson street, under 
a contract made July 25, 1894, for reduction and final dis- 
position ; teams which had made the collection formerly, 
under a contract which was rendered void upon the opera- 
tion of this plant, were hired by the day, and this continued 
until the complaints of the residents of the locality caused 
the plant to be adjudged detrimental to the public health, 
after an examination by the Board of Health, and the process 
was discontinued on April 18, 1895 ; since that time the 
offal has been collected by a contractor, who in turn sells 
it to farmers from his own offal-sheds near Commercial 
Point.

The experiment in the disposal of offal which resulted in 
the construction of the reduction plant of the New England 
Construction Company, demonstrated that public opinion 
will not permit the establishment of such a process in a 
settled portion of the community. The representatives of 
other processes, both of reduction and incineration, claim 
them odorless and unobjectionable, but even if this be true 
in itself, their establishment must result in the concentra- 
tion of the offal collection at this point. When the present 
methods of disposal become detrimental to the health of the 
community, or are made impossible by legislative enact- 
ment, the plant of the process adopted should be located 
upon some island in the harbor, and the collection should be 
made in covered cans or detachable wagon bodies, and 
delivered on the water front at many and widely distributed 
points ; it could then be taken by scow to the point of final 
disposition without rehandling, and the most objectionable 
feature of garbage collection thus obviated. 



Removal of Ashes and House-Dirt. 

The removal of ashes, house and store dirt has been 
attended to during the year by a minimum force of 223 
men and 93 city carts, also by 6 carts with an East Boston 
contractor, 5 carts with a South Boston contractor, 10 carts 
with a Dorchester contractor, and 3 carts with a West Rox- 
bury contractor. At different times, and especially during 



120 



City Document No. 29. 



the winter months, an additional force of 37 teams and 74 
men are employed. 

This work shows a constant increase from year to year, 
as will be seen in the following table, and is an indication of 
the actual growth of the city :

SEWER DIVISION. 



The maintenance force of this division is engaged in the 
operation and repair of the Main Drainage Works, at Old 
Harbor Point and Moon Island, as well as the repair and care 
of the entire sewer system of the city, including the flushing 
and cleaning of sewers and catch-basins. 

The following table shows the amounts expended from the 
maintenance appropriation of the Sewer Division for the past 
five (5) years :

The past year has been one of such unusual activity that 
the amount of sewer construction in 1894, previously the 
largest in the history of the division, has been exceeded in 
the number of lineal feet of sewer built by over fifty per 
cent. (50%). 

The city has built with its own labor and by contract 
139,200.09 linear feet of sewers, and designed and inspected 
36,287.35 linear feet for private parties building under 
release; making a total for the year of 175,487.44 feet, or 
over thirty-three miles. The total mileage of sewers now 
built is 416.45, of which 22.93 miles are intercepting sewers. 
Many new catch-basins and culverts have been built and old 
ones repaired. Over sixteen miles of sewers have been 
cleaned and flushed, and 18,264.25 cubic yards of sludge re- 
moved from various catch-basins. 

All sewers, with four exceptions, when the law under 
which they were constructed permitted, have been built by 
department day labor ; the sewers in all streets laid out 
under Chap. 323 of 1891, and Acts amending and referring 
thereto, including " The Boulevards," have been built by 
contract, as well as all surface drains, catch-basins, and 
house connections therein, which will ever be required, 
carrying the latter to within the curb-line. 

In addition to the 1\ miles of boulevard, requiring two 
sewers, with house connections and a surface drain with con- 



Street Department. 123 

necting catch-basins for nearly the entire distance, sewers, 
with house drains, or surface drains, or both, have been 
constructed in the following "Board of Survey" streets, so 
called : 

Abbotsford street, Bay State road, Brighton avenue, 
Granby street, Greenbriar street, Geneva avenue, Harvard 
avenue, Josephine street, Kenmore street, Lauriat avenue, 
St. Alphonsus street, and Sherborn street. 

Surface Drainage. 

The attention of the City Government and the public is 
again called to the subject of surface drainage and the neces- 
sity for legislation to protect natural water-courses from 
obliteration. It is unfortunately the fact that private inter- 
est is rapidly filling up these outlets which Nature provided 
for the surface drainage of the water-sheds, and considers 
itself injured when flooded thereby in time of storm ; con- 
necting the City of Boston in some unaccountable way with 
the injury, and unfairly demanding the construction of catch- 
basins for this flow to be connected with the public sewers. 

A portion of the article on " Surface Drainage " published 
in the report of last year seems worthy of reproduction in 
an attempt to bring forcibly to public attention the necessity 
of immediate legislative action : 

"While the sewers in the City Proper, East and South 
Boston, and Charlestown are, in the main, large enough to 
carry both the sewage and surface water, those of the out- 
lying districts are altogether too small to take the surface 
water, the areas to be drained being enormously larger than 
in the districts first mentioned. As the sewer system has 
been extended, year by year, into these outlying districts, 
the sizes designed have been but little larger than what was 
necessary to serve the needs of the district at the time of 
building. For many reasons this policy has been unavoid- 
able ; the size of oulets limits the size of extensions, and 
scarcity of funds often makes it imperative to build a sewer 
smaller than good judgment would dictate, in order to reach 
some community where the public health is endangered for 
lack of sewerage. 

" In many cases it would be not only financially impracti- 
cable but would show bad business judgment to sink large 
sums of money in building sewers large enough for all time, 
when the development of the district is uncertain or likely 
to be slow. The result of these various causes is, that the 
sewer system in Dorchester, West Roxbury, Brighton, and 
parts of Roxbury, while large enough in general to take care 



124 City Document No. 29. 

of the house sewage and the street-water during light rains, 
is totally inadequate to cany off the surface-water of heavy 
rains. 

" The state of things is growing constantly worse as the 
city grows, because, as new streets and houses are built, the 
proportions of impervious service from which the rain runs 
off rapidly, is being increased, causing the rainfall upon any 
given area to be concentrated and discharged in less time 
than in former years. 

" The inadequacy of the sewer systems to carry the storm- 
water becomes, therefore, more apparent every year as this 
change in the character of the surface of the around goes on. 
It is also apparent that it becomes correspondingly impor- 
tant to preserve and improve the natural water-courses to 
serve as carriers of the bulk of these floods, as the alterna- 
tive to this is practically to rebuild the whole sewer system 
of the suburban districts upon a larger scale. 

" In other words, we shall be compelled to regard our sewers 
as part of a partially separate system, although they were 
built and have been used upon the combined principle. 

"By confining the sewers to the duty of carrying the house 
sewerage and the discharge from a limited number of catch- 
basins only, they will prove in most cases large enough, while 
the natural water-courses, supplemented by .surface drains in 
the streets, will have to be developed into a system for car- 
rying away the storm-water. 

" It is also important to keep as much surface-water as pos- 
sible out of the sewer system, for the additional reason that 
all water, whether sewerage or rain w r ater, has to be lifted by 
the pumps of the intercepting system. 

"But however much those whose business it is to care for 
the city's interest may be impressed with the importance of 
preserving the water-courses, it is very difficult to impress 
the general public with its importance. This department is 
constantly involved in contests with land-owners who are 
filling up and obliterating these water-courses, heedless of 
well-defined channels or conspicuous street culverts. And 
here comes in play that discouraging phase of human nature, 
in consequence of which men, who are honorable in their 
dealings with their fellows, seem to be able to make use of a 
much lower code of morals when they come to deal with that 
impersonal entity called the city. 

" Although it may be explained to them that their course 
will entail upon the city in a few years an enormous expense 
for rebuilding the sewers of larger size, and although the 
law is perfectly clear that no man has a right to obstruct a 



Street Department. 125 

natural water-course and thereby damage his neighbor, still 
their personal gain outweighs these theoretical consider- 
ations, and they will persist in obliterating the channel, and 
will bring every political and other influence to bear to the 
end that the water which should flow in that channel be 
turned into the sewer, and have in many cases succeeded. 

" No one can pretend that the land speculator suffers any 
hardship by not being allowed to improve his lot in this 
manner, because the depreciation in the value of the land 
caused by the presence of the water-course has undoubtedly 
been discounted in the purchase price in every transfer 
through which it has passed, and certainly no one can claim 
that he has any moral right to the increment of value added 
thus at the city's expense. Unfortunately, his legal right to 
it is clear if he can get the thing done, and therein lies the 
temptation. 

" Now, the city's interest is such a vital one in this matter 
that it cannot afford to remain passive ; its course must be 
more aggressive in the future, or many of the most impor- 
tant of these water-courses will be practically obliterated 
within a few years, as a perusal of the paragraphs describ- 
ing their present condition will prove. 

"The law, as it stands, gives the city no rights which are 
at all commensurate with its interest in the matter. 

"The city's obligation is to keep a good and sufficient 
culvert in operation on every water-course w T hich crosses a 
public street. 

"If an abutter upon a water-course starts filling it in, the 
city can take no action until actual damage has resulted from 
flooding the street. 

" This is the sum total of the city's duties and rights in 
regard to these channels." 

Following this were suggestions for new legislation, the 
object of which would be to keep the existing channels open, 
also to improve the same without the necessity of making 
takings, and the consequent liability for damages ; and also 
to enable the city to assess the cost of improvements upon 
lands abutting upon such stream. 

This last phase of the question deserves further discussion. 

Abutting lands are not the only lands benefited or served 
by an improvement of a water-course. Let us consider 
what are the causes which bring about the necessity of im- 
proving, that is, enlarging the capacity of a water-course. 
It is not only the desire to utilize, by building upon, the 
low lands near the brook, but it is the actual change in the 
nature of the surface of the entire valley or water-shed for 



126 City Document No. 29. 

which the brook serves as the natural drain, caused by the 
grading, filling of hollows, construction of streets, houses, 
etc., whereby the proportion of impervious surface is in- 
creased, and the surface-water discharged more quickly into 
the water-courses, as previously explained. 

Although the total quantity of water to be provided for 
is not increased, the effect is the same as though there were 
an actual increase, because the same quantity is discharged 
in less time; enlargement of the discharging channels there- 
fore becomes necessary, for the channel must be equal to the 
maximum demand upon it, even if that demand be of short 
duration, or a flood ensues. 

The service which such an enlarged water-course per- 
forms, then, is to drain off the surface-water of all the land, 
high as well as low, which lies within its water-shed ; in- 
deed the changes just described usually take place first upon 
the high lands, which are naturally occupied and developed 
before the low lands. It is evident, therefore, that the cost 
of enlargement should be assessed upon all the lands within 
the water-shed of that portion of the brook which is enlarged, 
and, in equity, the assessment should be confined to such 
lands as the city, outside of such water-shed, is not benefited 
or served in any way by the improvement. But the low 
lands, which have always been liable to be flooded, receive 
a benefit in addition to the service which the brook renders 
them in common with all the land of its water-shed, — they 
become habitable ; whereas before the enlargement, which 
means deepening and lowering, of the brook they were not. 
Hence, a larger proportion of the cost of improvement 
should be assessed upon them than upon the high lands. 

The difference in the valuation of the low T lands, as shown 
by the assessors' books, in the year following the completion 
of the improvement, as compared with the valuation in the 
year before the improvement was begun, might fairly be 
considered as measuring the benefit received by them, and 
an assessment to defray the cost of the improvement might 
be made to equal this amount, the remainder of the cost of 
improvement, if any, being assessed equally upon all the 
lands within the water-shed, including the low lands ; in the 
case of the latter, the last described increment of assessment 
(representing service) being added to the first described 
increment (representing benefit received), and constituting 
the total assessment upon the low lands ; that upon the high 
lands being the increment which represents service only.

Division will be found in Appendix E.

STREET-CLEANING DIVISION. 



The Street-Cleaning Division has charge of the cleanliness 
of the public ways in the central portion of the city in which 
there are paved streets ; namely, in seven districts, while the 
suburban districts — No. 4, Brighton; No. 5, West Rox- 
bury, and No. 6, Dorchester — are cared for by the Paving 
Division. 

The following table shows the amounts expended for the 
maintenance of the Street Cleaning Division for the past five 
(5) years :

With an expenditure of $305,998.50, this division has 
cleaned 11,418.99 miles of streets, removing 122,544 loads 
of street-dirt; has also cleaned 2,718.45 miles of paved 
gutters on macadamized streets, including special work on 
crossings, maintained 16 dumping-stations, removed excess 
of snow from pavements and crossings, paid special atten- 
tion to the collection and removal of leaves in the fall of the 
year, maintained a paper-patrol in freezing weather and a 
push-cart patrol in the retail district, which has been ex- 
tended during the year into the business section of Roxbury ; 
and, besides making necessary repairs to its plant and pur- 
chasing the new stock needed, made a disposal at sea of 
31,278 loads of street-dirt. The average cost of sweeping- 
streets, including supervision, labor, yard, and stable ex- 
penses, pro rata of dumps, and removal, was, by improved 
organization and supervision, reduced from $15.61 (the cost 
last year) to $14.44 per actual mile of street swept, during 
the last eight and one-half months of the year. In the care 
of the three suburban districts, the Paving Division removed 
from macadamized streets 22,636 single and 2,107 double 
loads of street-scrapings. After a severe snow-storm, the

chines, 12 water-carts, 79 street-carts, 93 horses (owned by 
the division), 20 asphalt-scrapers. 

Six of the above horses are driving-horses. 

The push-cart patrol use : 

Sixty-one push-caits, 82 extra barrels, 3 street-carts, 
3 horses (all hired). Of the 61 push-carts, 37 are in daily 
service. 

In addition to the above-mentioned carts, the division 
hires about 43 extra teams. 

During the summer an extra single team and helper were 
hired, to empty the public waste-barrels located throughout 
the city.

The department owns three 3-horse sweeping-machines, 
which are stored in the yard of the Lockwood Man'f g Com- 
pany at East Boston. These were purchased in 1894, and 
were not found to operate successfully ; they are designed 
for self-loaders, but are of no use to the department. 

Special efforts have been made during the year for the 
abatement of the "paper nuisance" and kindred causes of 
unsightliness, due to the carelessness of abutters and the trav- 
elling public. 

The following circular has been issued and given wide 
distribution : 

CITY OF BOSTON. 

Street Department. 

Notice to Occupants. 

Your attention is hereby called to the following sections of the Revised 
Ordinances in relation to 

Throiving or Sweeping Dirt of any kind into the Public Streets. 

CHAPTER 43. 

Sect. 38. No person shall, except in accordance with the permis- 
sion of the Superintendent of Streets, or in accordance with the provi- 
sions of Section 42 of this Chapter (providing for the sanding of side- 
walks), sprinkle, scatter, put, or place, any earth, dirt, gravel, sand, 
cinders, ashes, sawdust, salt, or mixture of salt, in or upon a street, not 
nor shall any person, except in accordance with the permission of the 
Superintendent of Streets, remove any manure or dirt from any street. 

Sect. 39. No person shall throw, or sweep into, or place or drop 
and suffer to remain in any street, any piece of hoop, board, wood, wire, 
paper, or any nails, sweepings, sawdust, soot, ashes, cinders, shavings, 
hair, manure, oyster shell, clam shell, lobster shell, card, hand-bill, or 
rubbish or filth of any kind, or any noxious or refuse liquid or solid 
matter or substance. 

Sect. 103. Whoever violates any provision of this Chapter, shall be 
punished by a fine not exceeding twenty dollars for each offence, and 
not only the person actually doing the prohibited thing, but also his 
employer and every other person concerned in so doing, shall be pun- 
ished by the said fine. 

Sweeping store dirt to the sidewalks, and thence to the gutters, is in 
violation of the above ordinances. You are therefore notified to provide 
other measures for the removal of all sweepings and litter, as the above 
ordinances will be enforced. 

B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets. 

If the existing- ordinances regulating the conduct of the 
public with respect to cleanliness were faithfully observed 
and duly enforced, the task of the Street-Cleaning Division 
would be greatly lightened. With streets swept every night 
and patrolled during the day, no condition of cleanliness can 



130 City Document No. 29. 

be preserved when the operations of the department are fol- 
lowed by a procession of the thoughtless, the indifferent, 
and the ignorant, casting from them into the street refuse of 
fruit, torn scraps of letters, destroyed after perusal, the 
daily papers, and everything which ceases to have a use, 
while they are conveniently near a public way. 

The number of public waste-barrels has been largely 
increased during the year, and the tendency of fruit dealers 
and others selling goods, under a permit from this depart- 
ment, to throw refuse into the streets has been largely 
checked by the issuance of the following letter, and if com- 
pliance therewith has been refused the permit to sell has 
been revoked : 

CITY OF BOSTON. 
Street Department. 

Boston, 189 



Dear Sir : Complaint having been made of the condition in which 
the street is kept in front of your premises, where you are doing busi- 
ness under a permit obtained from the Sti-eet Department, you are 
hereby notified that it will be necessary for you to procure a waste 
barrel, to be located in the immediate vicinity of your stand. In order 
that these barrels may be of uniform dimensions, color, and lettering, 
you will be obliged to purchase the same of the city of Boston. Appli- 
cation for one of these barrels must be made to the Deputy Superin- 
tendent of the Street-Cleaning Division, at his office at 14 Beacon street, 
within ten days from date. 

Yours truly, 

B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets.

STREET-WATERING DIVISION. 



This division was made a separate and distinct part of the 
Street Department, with a Deputy Superintendent in charge, 
March 6, 1895. Heretofore the street-watering has been 
conducted by the Paving Division, with a foreman in charge. 
That the change fixes responsibility and increases efficiency, 
the service rendered by the division during the year and the 
reduced expense will prove clearly. 

The following sums have been expended for street-water- 
ing during the past five (5) years :

In the past it was deemed proper that the watering in the 
Back Bay and the South End should be done by contract 
rather than day work. This method at best is unsatisfactory, 
as the division and the contractor would often be of counter 
opinions as to when the carts are needed, and the supervising 
force compelled to be constantly on the alert to provide for 
the conditions before their tardy appearance. A contract, 
in street- watering at least, no matter what rebates it con- 
tains for poor service, does not give the satisfaction that day 
work does. For this reason, after due consideration, day 
work was substituted for contract work in the Back Bay and 
the South End districts, with the gratifying result that the 
watering was better done in those localities and at an aston- 
ishingly smaller expense than formerly. The cost of water- 
ing the Back Bay under contract in 1894 was $6,696.02 ; 
this year under day work the expense was $4,990. The 
cost of watering the South End under contract in 1894 was 
$5,128.50, against $2,540 for day work this year. A saving 
in both districts of $4,294.52 in day work over contract. 

This saving in the South End is, of course, partly due to 
the discontinuance of the use of salt-water furnished by the 
contractor. 

The past season was not excessively hot nor yet partic- 
ularly wet. The greatest advantage was taken of the rain- 
fall. 



132 City Document No. 29. 

Complaints made of the work of the division are of two 
kinds, one from the householder, who considers the flooding 
of the street from curb to curb only sufficient for his taste ; 
the other, from drivers and cyclists who appreciate proper 
and intelligent street-watering to be the laying of the dust 
without soaking the street into mud. 

Unusual attention has been given to the prevention of this 
flooding of macadam streets, a custom heretofore prevailing 
to the utter ruin of the street, but to the advantage of the 
water-cart owner since it permitted him to make fewer trips 
over his route, without complaint from the abutters because 
of dust ; and it has been the constant aim of the division to 
acquire that happy medium so difficult to attain, which will 
give protection from dust to the abutters, and freedom from 
mud to the cyclist, meanwhile saving the city the thousands 
of dollars in the cost of maintenance which improper water- 
ing of its macadamized streets has always cost it. 

Better results were made possible by more complete super- 
vision, and to increase the efficiency of the inspecting force, 
its members were provided with bicycles. The effect of this 
improved organization has been to give much better watering 
in the districts where in the past negligence in watering was 
due to the large territory assigned to the inspectors, averag- 
ing over twenty-five miles each, and which it was impossible 
for them to cover twice a day as is now done with the aid of 
the bicycles. The utter absence of any grave street-water- 
ing complaint, the work of the year having been subject to 
the smallest number of complaints of any kind ever known, 
is unquestionably a remarkable testimonial to the efficiency 
attained by the division. It has been brought about with 
the assistance of the bicycle, and the excellent telephone 
system arranged with the inspectors whereby they are in 
communication with the Deputy Superintendent morning 
and noon. 

There is still a false impression in some sections that the 
division waters paved streets, whereas the watering is done 
as formerly by the subscriptions of the abutters ; this is 
because of the extra original cost of paved streets over mac- 
adam, and the further fact that it is possible to keep them 
clean by sweeping. Corporations are compelled to water 
after finishing their operations in paved streets. The divi- 
sion is always willing to assist the abutters in having any 
nuisance abated, and invariably the contractors are ready to 
meet the extra demand upon them in the matter of operations 
in paved streets. 

The use of salt-water on macadam streets is impracticable 



Street Department. 133 

save in a very few locations, and is an undoubted injury to 
the better class of vehicles, and it has therefore been entirely 
discontinued.

176 City Document No. 29. 

It will be noted that the largest outlay for maintenance was 
upon the Boy lston- street bridge, over the Boston & Albany R.K., 
for cleaning and red-leading all the ironwork, and redecking and 
sheathing the same. This was clone upon the recommendation of 
the City Engineer, and cost for labor and material, $2,805.55. 

All of the bridges requiring it have been painted during the 
year, and all of the draw-houses have had all sanitary necessities 
put in complete good order. Water has been connected at L- 
street bridge, and the water connections have been made more 
complete at Congress street, which will result in a considerable 
saving for water formerly bought of water-boats. The men's 
quarters at draw-houses have been renovated and repainted. The 
carpenters have done a great deal of work and done it well, the 
roadways on all the bridges being in excellent condition. 

The names of each of the principal bridges have been painted 
and set up in conspicuous places on them. 

Work upon the inland bridges, in addition to repairs, includes 
keeping them clean. They have been swept regularly and 
thoroughly, and in winter kept clear of snow.

Plant and Property in Charge of the Ferry Division. 

South Ferry, East Boston side, located at the terminal of Lewis 
street, covers an area of 68,725 square feet of land and water. 
On these premises there is one head-house, one coal-shed, one 
work-shop for carpenters, machinists, and blacksmith, one gate- 
room and oil-room, three piers, which form the two ferry slips, 
two drops and tanks, and one dock, where boats are laid when not 
in use or while undergoing repairs. 

South Ferry, city side, located at the terminal of Eastern 
avenue, covers an area of 28,135 square feet, upon which is 
erected one head-house, with canopies extending over driveways, 
also boiler-room and gate- room, three piers, which form the two 
slips, and two drops and tanks. 

North Ferry, city side, located at the terminal of Battery street, 
covers an area of 45,000 square feet of land and water, upon 
which is erected one head-house, with canopies, boiler-room, gate- 
room, store-shed, etc., three piers, which form the two slips, and 
two drops and tanks. 

North Ferry, East Boston side, located at the terminal of Border 
street, covers and area of 62,138 square feet of land and water, 
upon which is erected one head-house, with canopy, boiler-room, 



Street Department — Ferry Division. 185 

gate-room, oil-room, stable and coal-shed, three piers, which form 
two slips, two drops and tanks. 

The wharf property adjoining the head house on Eastern avenue 
was leased several years ago by the Ferry Department for $4,000 
per year. The whole premises are now sublet to the Institutions 
Department for $2,000 per year. 

Of the drops there are eight — two of them are new, one having 
been built in 1894 and the other in 1895. 

Of the other six, four of them are in good condition, two are 
not so good. 

The South drop on North ferry, Boston side, is poor, but per- 
fectly safe. 

The North drop on South ferry, Boston side, is in the same 
condition. 

All the piers, twelve in number, are now in fair condition. 

The North pier on South ferry, Boston side, has just been 
repaired at a cost of over $1,300. 

The several head-houses and buildings are in good condition, 
except the head-house and the coal-shed at the South ferry, East 
Boston side, which must soon be replaced by new ones. 

The head-house on South ferry, Boston side, should be moved 
over to one side same as at North ferry, thereby making it safe and 
more convenient to foot-travel and greatly facilitating team traffic. 

Battery street should be widened on westerly side between 
Commercial street and ferry gate. This has been agitated for a 
long time without success, but should be done. 

With the cooperation of the Board of Police, patrol-boxes have 
been placed at each of the head-houses, and better protection thus 
secured to person and property of the patrons of the ferries.

There have been 13,334 notices sent to the various foremen 
directing them to repair defects in the streets, which have been re- 
ported by the police, or from other sources ; also 2,424 notices to 
private parties to repair work which had been improperly done by 
them where they had received permits to open the streets, and to 
owners of estates where there were defective coal-holes or Hyatt 
lights . 

In accordance with Sect. 8, Chap. 36, Revised Ordinances of 
1892, 328 notices have been sent to the foremen of the several 
districts, directing them to make, if necessary, repairs where parties 
making openings had neglected to attend to them within a specified 
time after being notified to do so. 

Three hundred and nine notices have been sent to departments, 
and others, regarding proposed street improvements. 

There have been 544 new bonds filed ; also 316 applications re- 
ferred to the Police Department, asking for information regarding 
locations where permits had been asked for to sell fruit, etc., from 
windows, bulkheads, and areas, and the granting or refusal' has 
been governed by the recommendations received. The same course 
has been pursued in cases of individuals desiring to occupy 
sidewalks for more than ten minutes at a time to load or unload 
goods. 

The inspectors connected with the Paving Division have reported 
to this office at an appointed hour daily, and presented in writing a 
statement of their doings of the previous day, all of which have 
been examined, and such notices or correspondence as becomes 
necessary bj T reason of their reports, forwarded. During the open 
season there have been a number of extra inspectors employed to 



Street Department — Paving Divisions 293 

watch over the work of companies opening long trenches. Their 
reports were also made in writing daily, giving the number of feet 
opened, amount of pipe or conduit laid, also the amount of back- 
filling, material used, and quality of the work in refilling and resur- 
facing, thus giving an idea of the condition of the streets at the 
points of opening. 

These inspectors were paid by the companies to whose work 
they were assigned. 

Since the removal of this office, on April 15, from Room No. 7, 
Old Court-House to the present quarters, Old Probate Building, 
No. 28 Court square, where, for the fkst time there is sufficient 
accommodation for the work of the office, all plans of street-rail- 
way tracks, poles, etc., and underground pipes or conduits have 
been removed from the office of the Paving Division to this office, 
and together with all other plans showing locations of electric 
poles, underground conduits, etc., are now being arranged and 
indexed. No plan is now loaned to any department or person 
without a receipt being taken for the same. 

Early in March a new duty was assigned to this office, in the 
examination of conditions of streets and sidewalks at points where 
it had been claimed that accidents had happened, and from state- 
ments received from the Inspector of Claims for the city, it seems 
to have been of much value. The following is the summary of 
this work during the season : 

The number of claims filed against the department since March 
12 is 100. 

The general character of these claims is found upon inspection 
to be based on various alleged defects. When, received at this 
office the claim is carefully investigated by the examiner, the place 
measured, and a sketch made of the location, report is made to the 
Superintendent of Streets, and is filed in his office for reference ; to 
be used also for the benefit of the committee on claims, and as 
evidence in court if necessary, and a duplicate report is also kept 
in the Permit Office. 

A great many of these claims are in reality for no defects in the 
highway, but are traced to the negligence of corporations, contrac- 
tors, builders, drain-layers, etc., who fail to properly light or guard 
their trenches or obstructions, and who do not put the street back 
in a workmanlike or satisfactory manner, therefore a new feature 
has been added to fit these cases in the form of a notice which is 
sent to the parties who have or had permits for openings, obstruc- 
tions, etc. As will be readily seen, they place the responsibility 
for these accidents and defects on the proper parties. It is also a 
matter of importance to know that these notices greatly aid the 
Inspector of Claims in the settlement of a number of such cases. 

The number of claims investigated ..... 100 

The number of notices sent out ..... 45

The men are required to enter the yards, collect the offal, empty 
into wagons, and deliver at the depots, located as follows : one on 
Albany street, one on Highland street, Roxbury ; and one at the 
Almshouse, Charlestown ; also to the dumping-boats located at 
Fort Hill wharf, on Atlantic avenue. 

The offal is largely sold to farmers of adjoining towns, the 
remainder is dumped on the scows and carried to sea. About 
nine per cent, of the quantity collected during the past } 7 ear has 
been disposed of in this manner. 

On January 21, 1895, the New England Construction Company 
commenced the disposition of the offal collected under the 
McShane contract at the plant erected by them on the city land 
located on Gibson street, Dorchester. They disposed of 910^ tons 
under their patented process, for which they received $569.44; 
but the residents of Dorchester objected to the process and loca- 
tion of the plant, and held public indignation meetings, appealing 
to the Board of Health to stop the running of the plant, and finally 
applied to the Courts for an injunction ; this was granted, and on 
April 18, 1895, it was closed, and still remains so. 

The Dorchester contractor disposes of the offal at present in the 
same manner as the city itself, by sale to farmers. 

At present there are four sections of the city let out by contract 
for the collection of house-offal : East Boston, by Thomas Mulli- 
gan ; Dorchester District, by John McShane ; Brighton District, by 
D. B. Morrill; and a portion of West Roxbury, by George T. 
Barnes. 

The cash revenue received from the sale of house-offal for the 
past five years has been as follows : 



1891 .... 


. $30,246 65 


1892 .... 


21,282 82 


1893 ....

1894 .... 


26,262 40 


1895 


27,374 47 



Street Department — Sanitary Division. 311 

The money received from the sales of house-offal is deposited 
monthly with the City Collector, and then credited to the Sinking- 
Fund of the City of Boston. 

House-dirt and Ashes. 

In the collection of house-dirt and ashes there are employed 271 
men and 199 carts. This material is removed from hotels, tene- 
ment-houses, and stores daily ; from dwelling-houses once a week. 
The City Ordinances of 1892 (Chapter 36) require that house-dirt 
and ashes shall be kept in an easily accessible place for their re- 
moval, the men being obliged to enter the yards and remove the 
receptacles to the sidewalks, where their contents are dumped into 
the carts. The receptacles are then placed in their original posi- 
tion. The material is disposed of, if possible, on low lands, being- 
used for filling, and is also dumped on scows, to be carried to sea. 
Of the amount collected last year, thirty-one per cent, was dis- 
posed of in this manner, viz., carried to sea. 

There are five sections of the city let out by contract for the 
collection of house-dirt and ashes. Both Dorchester contracts are 
held by John McShane ; South Boston, west of Dorchester street, 
by Denis O'Sullivan ; East Boston by Wm. P. Hedrington ; and a 
part of West Roxbury by Matthew E. Nawn. 

At the expiration of one of the South Boston contracts — that 
one held by F. J. Mohan, — east of Dorchester street, on May 1, 
1895, the work was continued by day labor, with teams from the 
South yard. Later in the year, a stable and yard were hired on 
Ninth street, corner of Vale, and all of the teams for the collection 
of ashes in this section were located there, together with the offal 
wagons that were working in South Boston, in order that the work 
of collecting and removing both house-dirt and ashes and house- 
offal might be done by day labor. 

Division Repair-Shops. 

Located at the South End Yard, situated 650 Albany Street. 

At these shops all of the repairs on carriages, carts, wagons, 
etc., are made, together with the painting of same; all harnesses 
are repaired and many made, and a portion of the horse-shoeing 
done. 

The mechauics in these shops are 'engaged also in making 
repairs on the vehicles, etc., sent by the different divisions of the 
Street Department ; all street-signs are painted for the Paving 
Division, and a certain amount of horseshoeing is done for the 
several divisions. 

Wheelwright and Blacksmith Shops. 

Cost to maintain during the past year, the sum of $10,005.23, 
of which amount $5,206.25 was expended for labor and $4,798.98 
for stock. The carts, wagons, and other vehicles of the division 
were properly overhauled, when in need of repairs, and the entire 
lot of ash and offal sleds were put in proper working order. Of

lowing amounts were charged off to the several divisions and 
others for repairing, altering, and putting in good condition their

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Probate Building, 28 Court Square, 
Boston, February 1, 1896. 
Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir : I respectfully submit the following report of the 
expenses, income, and business of the Sewer Division, for the 
financial year ending January 31, 1896, together with a brief 
statement of the present condition of the sewers and other prop- 
erty, the work done this year, and what should be done in the near 
future that the efficiency of the sewers may be improved. 

Respectfully yours, 

H. W. Sanborn, 

Deputy Superintendent. 

The Sewer Division has charge of the following work : 

1. The maintenance and construction of all common sewers 
and catch-basins. • 

2. The maintenance of the main drainage works. 

3. The maintenance of Stony brook. 

4. The maintenance and construction of all street culverts. 

5. The preparation of plans, and the engineering and super- 
vision required on the construction and maintenance of all work 
connected with the division. 

6. The granting of permits for all connections to be made with 
the common sewers, and the custody of bonds filed by drain-layers 
authorized to make such connections. 

7. The levying of assessments on estates benefited by the con- 
struction of sewers. 

One hundred and thirty-nine thousand two hundred (139,200) 
lin. ft. of sewers have been built during the past year by the 
city, and thirty-six thousand two hundred and eighty-seven (36,- 
287) lin. ft. have been built by private parties according to the 
plans, and under the inspection of this division, and accepted by 
the city under the usual forms of release. 

Before submitting any of the details necessary to a compre- 
hensive statement of what has been accomplished by the Sewer 



320 City Document No. 29. 

Division during the past year, your attention is called to the urgent 
necessity of an increase in the maintenance appropriation over 
what we have had for the past two or three years. It is impossible 
to do justice to the citizens or the department without it. The 
amount received has been carefully expended, but it is impossible 
to keep the sewers and catch-basins in anything like a sanitary 
condition without an increase. To emphasize the fact, I have 
only to state that fifty-five (55) miles of sewers and five hundred 
and seventy (570) catch-basins have been added to the system in 
the last two years alone, and yet instead of an increased appro- 
priation to care for the same, the division had appropriated for 
maintenance the past year $50,000 less than in 1893. 

Another item that should be recognized in providing for the 
maintenance of the division is that of repairs to the plant at the 
pumping-station. Money must be provided to do the necessary 
work, or the vital point in the whole sewer system will some day 
become suddenly inoperative. 

The experience of the last few years has proven that money 
for this work cannot be obtained outside of the maintenance 
appropriation. 

Jt would seem that the healthfulness of the city, which is to a 
great extent dependent upon the proper sanitary condition of the 
sewer system, would be reason enough to furnish a sufficient 
amount to properly maintain the system, even if some less urgent 
matters were curtailed in consequence. 

The city is growing fast, new territory is being developed, the 
sewer system expanding proportionally, and it is impossible to 
maintain it properly without a somewhat nearly corresponding 
increase in appropriation. 

City Proper anp Back Bay. 

The system of sewers in the vicinity of Haymarket square, 
bounded roughly by Causeway, Hanover, Endicott, and Merrimac 
streets, and having its outlet through Canal street, remains in the 
same condition in which it was left by the building of the west- 
side intercepter in 1883. 

It was assumed by the authorities of the Improved Sewerage at 
that time that the city would proceed at once to rebuild this sys- 
tem, but it has been put off from year to. year until now thirteen 
years have elapsed, and the sewers are filled nearly to the top 
with sewage deposit. 

A more unsanitary condition of things can hardly be found in any 
large city in this country than exists in this district. This whole 
matter, and the possible remedies therefor, were fully discussed in 
the annual report for 1891, to which reference is made. Briefly, 
there are two courses which may be pursued, one, to rebuild all 
the sewers at an elevation several feet higher to correspond with 
that of the west-side intercepter ; the other, to build a new sewer 
across the city from the east-side intercepter low enough to drain 
out these sewers ; a plan which is feasible from the fact that the 
east-side intercepter is about four feet lower than that of the west- 
side. The latter plan is favored on account of its being somewhat

cheaper, and affording a system of sewers at a lower grade, a 
desirable object for this business section of the city, where cellars 
will probably be deeper in the future than they are now. 

The completion of the Beach-street system should be under- 
taken, or at all events, that portion which includes the rebuilding 
of the contracted section of the Harvard-street outlet sewer ; the 
Hooding of cellars connected with this system demonstrates its 
necessity. 

The sewer in Falmouth and Norway streets, which is badly 
settled and broken, should be rebuilt without further delay, as its 
collapse would dam up the sewage of a considerable section. 
The main sewers in Berkeley, Dartmouth, Fairfield, and Hereford 
streets are contracted at their storm outlets into Charles river ; 
these outlets should be enlarged and tide-gates of sufficient 
capacity provided. 

The perfection of the surface drainage system of the Back Bay, 
for which a study was made last year, should be attended to ; 
about one hundred and thirty-three catch-basins and seven thou- 
sand linear feet of pipe sewers and surface drains are needed. 

Twelve catch-basins in Charlesgate East are connected with a 
sewer, while the covered channel of Ston}' brook lies in the same 
street. 

These basins should never have been connected with a sewer 
when a large surface drain was almost equally convenient Their 
connections should be removed from the sewer and put into the 
brook ; an inexpensive change by which a considerable amount of 
surface-water could be kept out of the Hereford-street sewer 
system. 

The houses on the water-side of Beacon street still drain into 
Charles river. A sewer should be built for these houses whenever 
the proposed boulevard along the bank of the river is built. 

A very large number of sewers in the city proper, especially in 
the South Cove, are settled and defective. The following list will 
give an idea of the extent to which the city will be called upon to 
rebuild sewers in the near future ; the rebuilding of a large pro- 
portion of these cannot be much longer postponed, and should not 
be any longer delayed, if funds can possibly be secured, as the 
cleaning of them is continuous and expensive : 

Brighton street, from Milton to Leverett street. 

Wall street, from Minot to Causeway street. 

Wiget street, from N. Margin to Salem street. 

Webster avenue, from Hanover to Unity street. 

Hull street, from Commercial to N. Hudson street. 

S. Market street, from Commercial street to Merchants row. 

Haverhill street, from Traverse to Causeway street. 

Nashua street, from Minot to Causeway street. 

India street, from Central street to India square. 

Milton street, from Brighton to Spring street. 

Leverett street, from Causeway to Green street. 

Chatham street, from Commercial street to Merchants row. 

Bread street, from India to Broad street. 



322 City Document No. 29. 

Part of sewer at Prince and Thacher street. 
Stillraan street, from Charlestown to Salem street. 
Way street, from Harrison avenue to Albany street. 
East street, from Federal to Lincoln street. 
Edinboro' street, from Essex to Beach street. 
South street, from Beach to Kneeland street. 
Winchester street, from Church street to Edgerly place. 
Appleton street, from Tremont to Berkeley street. 
Albany street, from Genesee to Troy street. 
Oak street, from Albany to Hudson street. 
Warren avenue, from Dartmouth to Clarendon street. 
Passageway between Concord street and Worcester square. 

St. Charles, Guy, Piedmont, Ferdinand, Fayette, and Kirkland 
streets are badly settled and need either partial or complete re- 
building. 

Work clone during 1895. 

The defective drainage of the Qnincy Markets, frequently men- 
tioned in previous annual reports, is in a fair way to be remedied, 
the special sewer for that purpose being now under way, including 
a large tank for the storage of sewage during those periods of rain 
and higli tide when the common sewers do not afford drainage to 
low cellars. 

The cellars of business blocks in this vicinity are in much the 
same condition as those of the markets, and it would be a desirable 
thing, if funds were available, to build similar systems for their 
accommodation. 

Five thousand seven hundred and thirty-seven (5,737) linear 
feet of sewers and surface drains were built by the city by day 
labor and contract, and two thousand one hundred and sixty-two 
(2,162) linear feet by private parties and released to the city. 

Charlestown. 

A sewer will have to be built in Chelsea street, between Mecl- 
ford street and Scott's court, to conduct the sewage of the court 
into the Metropolitan sewer, which ends at Medford street. 

Twelve connections, costing about $30,000 in the aggregate, 
will have to be made with the Metropolitan sewers the coming- 
season, as was stated during the year in a communication to the 
Mayor, transmitted by him to the City Council. 

New sewers are needed in Arlington avenue, Russell street, 
between Mead and Eden streets, and in Concord street. 

The Beach-street outlet should be rebuilt of increased size, the 
backing up of sewage in the Cambridge-street sewer being largely 
due to the outlet. 

Old and defective sewers in the following streets should be 
rebuilt : 

Lyndeboro' street, Essex to Middlesex street. 
Beacham street. 

Monument avenue, Warren street to Monument square. 
Rutherford avenue, Chapman to Dunstable street.

Corey street. 

Winthrop street, Warren to Adams street. 

Frotbinghara avenue. 

Work done during 1895. 

One thousand three hundred and eleven (1,311) linear feet of 
sewers and surface-drains were built by the city by day labor. 

East Boston. 

The outlet-sewer for Leyden street, west of Breed street, is now 
under way. It will serve for the outlet for sewers on the south- 
western part of the hill. 

The Havre-street sewer, between Meridian and Sumner streets, 
should be rebuilt ; and a main sewer should be started in Chelsea 
street, near the bridge. 

The following sewer-outlets need rebuilding : 

Porter street. 
Putnam street. 
Jeffries street. 
Decatur street. 
Brooks street. 
Outlet at Dock No. 13. 

Eighteen connections with the Metropolitan sewer system, esti- 
mated to cost $45,000, should be made during the coming year. 

Work done during 1895. 

The Orleans-street sewer, between Maverick and Porter streets, 
has been completed, and a connection made with the Metropolitan 
sewer. 

Three thousand four hundred and fifty-four (3,454) linear feet 
of sewers have been built by the city by day labor. 

Brighton. 

Complaints are constantly coming in to the department from res- 
idents on Union, 'Shepard, Winship, and Washington streets, on 
account of their cellars being flooded during every considerable 
rain-storm. The trouble has been exhaustively discussed in nu- 
merous past reports ; briefly, it is due to the fact that the seweri 
are too small to carry the surface-water during storms, and the 
brook, which formed the natural drain for this district, has been 
almost completely obliterated by the abutters, who now suffer the 
natural consequences of their folly. 

The city, too, is not blameless, its agents in past times having 
yielded to the importunities of these same abutters, and connected 
the brook at various places with the sewers. This department 
has but two alternatives to consider in devising a remedy : either 
to restore the brook channel upon the old route, or by arrange- 
ment with the abutters, upon lines near those of the old route, or 
to build an expensive surface drain located in the streets. The 



324 City Document No. 29. 

Board of Health has the power, which this department does not 
possess, to enter upon private lands and restore the old channel 
and assess the cost of the work upon those benefited, and should 
take this action in the interest of public sanitation. 

The house sewer and surface drain, contemplated for several 
years, for North Harvard street, should be built. Sewers should 
also be built in the following streets : 

Newton street. 

School street, from Market to Portsmouth street. 

Allston square, from Commonwealth avenue to Allston street. 

A sewer should be built from Buffalo to Everett street, there to 
connect with the Everett-street sewer, to take the sewage from 
the stock yards, leaving the old culvert, through which the sewage 
of the stock yards now drains, to carry the surface-water from the 
road-bed of the B. & A. R.R. aud the water from the old brook. 

An outlet should be provided for the surface-water of Lincoln 
street, near where the track of the Sewall & Day Cordage Com- 
pany crosses it. 

Our topographical plans show that a small branch of the brook 
mentioned in the preceding paragraph formerly flowed along and 
across the tracks of the B. & A. R.R. at this point ; this should 
be restored and the Lincoln street catch-basins drained into it. 

Work done during 1895. 

The sewer system of Harvard-avenue has been built, and also 
those of Sections 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 of Commonwealth-avenue 
boulevard. 

Section 3 is being built, as are the outlet sewers in Chestnut 
Hill avenue. A long and expensive outlet remains to be built in 
new streets, between Foster and Lake streets. The Lake-street 
sewer, completed in 1895, is the outlet for a portion of Common- 
wealth avenue and for a part of the Newton boulevard. A new 
main sewer, connecting with the Metropolitan sewer at Faneuil Sta- 
tion, has been built, and will afford an outlet for sewers in the 
streets on the northerl}' side of Bigelow hill. 

Twenty-eight thousand three hundred and eightj'-four (28,384) 
linear feet of sewers and surface drains have been built by the 
cMy by day labor and contract, including the sewers of the boule- 
vards, and four thousand six hundred and sixteen (4,616) linear 
feet by private parties. 

South Boston. 

The sewer outlets along the southern shore of the peninsula at 
H, I, K, N, P, and Q streets are all in very bad condition and should 
be rebuilt. As the Park Department is engaged in building the 
Strandway along this shore, the rebuilding and extending these 
outlets must be done in connection with the work of the Park 
Department. The latter department should pay the cost of 
extensions beyond the present shore line, necessitated by the 
Mrandway. 



Steeet Department — Sewer Division. 325 

The B and Seventh street outlet, from the junction of these 
streets to South Bay, should be rebuilt, both on account of its insuf- 
ficient size and defective condition. If funds can be made avail- 
able the whole scheme, discussed in several previous reports, of 
sewering Dorchester avenue between B and D streets, and rebuild- 
ing D-street sewer, between Dorchester avenue and Eighth streets, 
should be carried out in connection with work on the outlet. The 
sewer in Seventh street, also, between B and D streets, should be 
rebuilt, as it is in bad condition. 

The outlet at Dorchester avenue and Dorr street will have to be 
extended, as parties owning the flats are filling in, and have nearly 
shut off the outlet. The Kemp-street outlet, which has been 
broken down for years, should be rebuilt and made of sufficient 
size to serve for an overflow for the South Boston intercepter. 

The sewers in Dorchester avenue, between D and Dexter streets, 
and in E street, between Seventh and Eighth streets, are broken and 
settled and liable to fall in at any time ; they should be rebuilt at 
once. 

The sewer in Silver street, between C and D streets, is broken in 
in so many places that the flow of sewage is obstructed and backs 
into the cellars ; only temporary relief can be given by frequent 
cleaning. 

It should be rebuilt immediately, as the cost of cleaning it, in its 
present condition, will soon exceed the cost of rebuilding. 

The sewers in Dexter and Ellery streets are so badly broken 
and settled that the cleaning-rods cannot be pushed through them, 
houses are flooded, and complaints are numerous. They should 
receive early attention, and be rebuilt upon a substantial foundation. 

The sewer in Mercer street should be rebuilt of larger size, to 
prevent further flooding on Mercer and Vale streets. 

Many new catch-basins are asked for by the Paving Depart- ' 
ment, and many new manholes are needed on old sewers, as the 
distance between existing manholes is too great to admit of proper 
cleaning. A fund should be provided for building these in this 
district, and also for repairing defective catch-basins and man- 
holes. 

A sewer in Dorchester avenue, between B and D streets, is de- 
sirable, but not imperative, at the present time, and the D-street 
sewer, between Dorchester avenue and Eighth street, should be 
built, as it is settled so much as to form a poor outlet for the 
lateral sewers connected with it. 

Work done during 1895. 

The Dorchester-avenue sewer, between Fort Point channel and 
Broadway, has been rebuilt in a substantial manner. 

Two thousand and ninety-seven (2,097) linear feet of sewers 
were built by the city by day labor. 

Dorchester. 

The sewer outlet and overflow for the Dorchester intercepting 
sewer, at the corner of Freeport and Shamrock streets, has been 



326 City Document No. 29. 

obstructed by filling in of the flats during the past year ; a large 
wooden outlet sewer should be built at this point as soon as prac- 
ticable and carried out upon the flats as far as the wharves now 
extend. Any serious obstruction of this outlet will result in flood- 
ing of cellars all along the line of the intercepter. 

The Dorchester intercepter should be provided with a capacious 
overflow outlet at or near Crescent avenue. This sewer is con- 
trolled by a single regulator, situated at its junction with the main 
at Mount Vernon street ; when the regulator shuts during storms 
there is no relief for the sewer nearer than Glover's Corner, about 
one mile away. All the sewers which connect with it between 
these points are consequently backed up at such times, and re- 
main so until the regulator opens again the connection with the main 
intercepter. The building of this overflow sewer, which should 
properly have been built in connection with the building of the 
regulator, has now become a necessity, and should not be longer 
delayed. Another locality which stands in pressing need of relief, 
and the condition of which has been discussed in numerous pre- 
vious annual 'reports, is the Gibson and Park streets district. So 
greatly are the sewers overcharged with water during storms that 
the manhole covers are thrown off, and the water spouts so high 
from them as to scour out the hard frozen macadam surface of the 
streets and make it necessary to fence off these places until the 
streets can be repaired ; the sewers in these streets, together with 
Tenean brook, drain a very large territory, and their capacity, 
combined with that of the brook, is entirely inadequate to cany 
off the water of a storm. Tenean brook, between Park street, 
near Clayton street, and the Shawmut Branch of the Old Colony 
Railroad at Geneva avenue, inclusive, should be largely deepened 
and widened, and would then be an effective aid to the sewers. 
The temporary plan for sewering Lauriat avenue and vicinity has 
been adopted, the gravity main from Talbot avenue to Lyons 
street begun, and land purchased for a pumping-station, on the 
corner of Chapman avenue and Lyons street. The main sewer, 
extending southerly and easterly from Lauriat avenue, to receive 
the sewers of the Nelson and Corbet streets district, should be 
built this year, and also as many of the laterals in the streets of 
this district as possible. 

This will provide for the house sewage of the district, but not 
for the storm-water, for, inasmuch as all the sewage must be 
pumped once at Lyons street and again at the pumping-station of 
the main intercepter at the Calf Pasture, no surface-water can be 
admitted into these sewers. 

This region is now overflowed and the streets rendered impassable 
at nearly every storm, owing to the inadequate size and obstructed 
condition of the Canterbury branch of Stony brook. An extensive 
improvement of this branch of Stony brook will have to be under- 
taken by the city, and either the cost assessed upon the lands bene- 
fitted, as elsewhere discussed, or borne by the city in general, in 
the interest of the public health. This work cannot be much longer 
postponed as the region is being rapidly settled, on account of the 
proximity of the stations on the New York & New England Rail- 




DORCHESTER-BROOK SEWER, — SHOWING NECESSITY OF BEING REBUILT. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 327 

road. The improvement must be started at least as far down 
stream as the culvert on Walk Hill street, and extended to con- 
nect with the drainage ditch dug by the Park Department around 
Franklin field. Another region where a similiar improvement 
must be undertaken in the near future is that drained by the Mat- 
tapan brook ; a main sewer will also have to be built in this valley, 
to connect with the Neponset Valley interceptor, when the latter 
sewer reaches this locality. The building of the Neponset Valley 
interceptor is being undertaken by the Metropolitan Sewerage 
Commission, and none too soon, as no sewers can be built in those 
portions of Dorchester and West Roxbury which slope towards the 
Neponset and Charles rivers, until the intercepting sewer is read} 7 
to carry away the sewage ; the presence of sewage could not be 
tolerated in the mill ponds of the Neponset river. 

The sewer system of Geneva avenue, Greenbriar street, Jose- 
phine street, all laid out under Chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891 as 
amended by Chapter 418 of the Acts of 1892, have been completed, 
as have also those of Sections 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, and 12 of the Blue 
Hill-avenue boulevard ; Sections 1 and a part of 2 and 3 are under 
contract and in progress, and the same is the case with Lauriat 
avenue. 

Four thousand one hundred and thirty-nine (4,139) linear feet 
of sewers and surface drains have been built by the city by da}' 
labor and contract, including the boulevard systems, and eighteen 
thousand six hundred and fifty-two (18,652) linear feet by private 
parties. 

ROXBURY. 

Dorchester-brook sewer, between Norfolk avenue and Clifton 
street, a stone arched channel with very slight covering, has col- 
lapsed, the arch having probably been lifted by internal pressure 
from the volume of water which it had to carry in storms, as it 
was much too small. It is about to be rebuilt of brick of much 
larger size, and at a greater depth. The new channel will be a 
continuation of the channel built during the last few years from 
the South Bay up to the point in Norfolk avenue where the old 
sewer formerly crossed it. The location will be changed aud will 
lie in the centre of a new street recently laid out by the Board of 
Street Commissioners, nearly parallel with Pontine street. 

Numerous complaints of flooding have been made along the liDe 
of this sewer up as far as Quincy street ; it is undoutedly too small 
for the constantly increasing volume of water which it has to carry, 
and will have to be rebuilt before long up to this point. 

Complaints of flooding are received at every storm from the 
residents of Orchard park and Yeoman street. Some good can be 
done by building a surface drain in Orchard park, but the sewers 
in Yeoman, Chadwick. and Hampden streets are all too small and 
will have to be rebuilt or their capacity supplemented by new 
sewers. Meanwhile the residents should protect themselves from 
flooding by putting back-water traps upon their connections with 
the sewers. 

Guild row is another locality which frequently suffers from Moods 



328 City Document No. 29. 

due to the insufficient size of the sewers. The plan for extending 
the large Vernon-street sewer to this locality should be carried out. 

The projected sj'stem of sewers in Columbus-avenue extension 
will afford an outlet for a sewer to relieve Notre Dame street, 
which now suffers from the inadequacy of the sewer in this street 
and Bragdon street. 

A system of pipe-sewers is necessary to take the drainage from 
the houses on both sides of the old channel of Stouy brook 
between Huntington avenue and the Roxbury Crossing. (See 
the Annual Report for 1892.) 

Until these sewers are built, about 3,000 feet in all, Stony brook 
will continue to be somewhat polluted with sewage. 

The Harrison-avenue sewer, between Northampton and Eustis 
streets, is settled so much that it cannot be cleaned without pump- 
ing it out with a steam-pump. Although the rebuilding of this 
sewer will be very expensive, it should not be put off any longer. 

The following is a list of defective sewers requiring rebuilding : 

Davenport street, from Columbus avenue to Tremont street. 

Walpole street, from Columbus avenue to Tremont street. 

Burke street, from Columbus avenue to Tremont street. 

George street, from Clarence street to Dorchester brook. 

George street, from Gerard to Magazine street. 

Haskins street, from Vernon to Ruggles street. 

Chesterfield street. 

Orchard street, off. Yeoman street. 

Winslow street, from Palmer to Eustis street. 

Chadwick street, from Ambrose to Yeoman street. 

Marsh field street, from Batchelder street to Norfolk avenue. 

Hunneman street, from Brown street to Harrison avenue. 

Harrison avenue, from Eustis to Northampton street. 

Newcomb street, from Reed street to Harrison avenue. 

Lenox street, from Sanford place to Harrison avenue. 

Haviland street, from Parker street to Massachusetts avenue. 

Work done during 1895. 

Main sewers have been built in Massachusetts avenue, Gerard 
street, and Boylston-street extension ; the latter a difficult and ex- 
pensive sewer to build, the street consisting of a new gravel fill 
upon deep beds of mud and peat. The sewer system of the Hunt- 
ington-avenue boulevard is practically completed, with the excep- 
tion of a few unimportant items, and also with the exception of 
the work of strengthening the arches of the old stone channel of 
Stony brook. The sewer system of Columbus-avenue boulevard 
is also practically completed from Northampton to Ruggles street, 
and is under contract up to the Roxbury Crossing. 

The sewer system of the last section of the avenue, from a point 
between Dimock and Brighton streets to Franklin park, is also 
completed. 

A section of the channel for Stony brook, recommended by the 
Commission of 1886, has been built by the N.Y., N.H., & H. R.R., 
in connection with the raising of the tracks of its Providence 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 329 

Division from the bend of the brook at the railroad near Amory 
street to a point 400 feet south of Boylston street, in West 
Roxbury. 

This channel is submerged nearly to the top of the arch, and 
will remain so until the new channel is built at the low grade, 
from the inlet chamber up to join it. A section of the West Rox- 
bury low-level sewer, discussed in previous annual reports, was 
built in connection with, and supported on the haunch of, the 
Stony-brook channel, and paid for by the city, for the reason that 
it could be built cheaper at this time and in this manner than at 
any subsequent time. 

Forty thousand seven hundred and sixty-two (40,762) linear 
feet of sewers and surface drains were built by the city, by day 
labor and contract, including the sewer systems of the boule- 
vards mentioned, and four thousand one hundred and forty (4,140) 
linear feet by private parties, including sewers and surface drains 
built by the N. Y., IS. H., & H. R.R. in connection with raising 
the tracks of the Providence Railroad. 

West Roxbury. 

There is a large region in the southern and western quarters 
of Roslindale, part newly settled and part old, which is without 
sewers, although fairly populous. This region embraces, among 
the older streets, Hemlock, Bellevue avenue, etc., south-west of 
Roslindale village ; also a number of new streets, which have 
been graded off of Bellevue and Belgrade avenues, such as 
Orange, Berry, Newburg, Aldrich, and Colburg streets. All of 
these could be drained directly, or with short outlets, into the 
West Roxbury trunk sewer. Another group, embracing South 
Fairview, South Walter, and Brookfield streets, etc., would need 
an outlet across the Dedham Branch Railroad, just west of Roslin- 
dale Station, into the Brandon and Corinth streets sewer. This 
outlet would eventually be continued across South street to accom- 
modate Farquhar and Selwyn streets, and indeed all of that valley 
south-west of Hewlett street, the sewer in which has already been 
built to go into the existing sewer in Walter street. 

Streets which have been laid out across the lowlands adjoining 
Stony brook, in Jamaica Plain, such as New Keyes and Williams 
streets, have needed sewerage for a long time, but could not be 
accommodated because the existing s} T stem of sewers is too high 
to be extended into them. If the West Roxbury low-level sewer 
should be completed as far as Boylston Station during this coming 
year, in connection with the building of the Columbus avenue 
boulevard, as now seems probable, it will then be within a 
reasonable distance of these streets, and it will then be possible 
to extend it to them and sewer them at moderate cost. 

Those valleys which lie between the Stony brook divide and 
Charles river can be sewered as soon as the Neponset valley and 
Mother brook intercepting sewer is completed. As the work of 
building this sewer has been taken up by the Metropolitan Sewer- 
age Commission, there seems to be a probability of being able to 
sewer these districts properly in the near future. 



330 City Document No. 29. 

The streets in the vicinity of Florence, Sycamore, Ashland 
street, etc., have been in need of sewerage for a long time ; a 
branch of the Roslinclale main sewer will have to be extended to 
this neighborhood from the northerly of the two intersections of 
Washington and South streets. 

Work done during 1895. 

Work is in progress upon a sewer, upon the separate principle, 
to extend from the Roslinclale main sewer at Franklin place to the 
Insane Asylum on Walk Hill street. This sewer will afford house- 
sewerage only for streets along its route, but cannot receive the 
flow from catch-basins. 

Seventeen thousand three hundred and fifty-eight (17,358) linear 
feet of sewers and surface-drains have been built by the city 
by day labor and contract, and six thousand seven hundred and 
seventeen (6,717) linear feet b}* private parties, including sewers 
and surface-drains built by the N. Y., N. H., & H. R.R., in 
connection with raising the tracks of the Providence Division. 

Main Drainage Works. 

The amount of sewage handled at the Pumping-station is in- 
creasing so rapidly from year to year that it is imperative that 
some action should be taken towards increasing the high-duty 
pumping capacity or keeping surface-water to a greater extent out 
of the sewers. It was necessary the past 3 r ear to run the low-duty 
pumps one-quarter of the time, which increased the coal consump- 
tion to a much greater extent than would have been the case if 
high-duty pumps only could have been used. 

So large an amount of surface-water now gets to the Pumping- 
station that, without the pumping capacity to handle it, it causes 
the regulators to be closed longer than they should be, discharging 
more through the overflows than is advisable, and keeping the 
common sewers backed up more than is desirable. 

Another thing that is working to the detriment of the system is 
the continued postponement of building overflows for some of the 
intercepting sewers, that have been recommended for a long time, 
and are now an urgent necessity ; also the failure to extend 
numerous overflows of the common sewers that are becoming 
obstructed to an unsafe extent by the filling-in of the flats at their 
outlets. 

These overflows are spoken of in detail elsewhere in the report 
under the districts in which they are. Mention was made in the 
last annual report of the inadequate accommodations of the force 
in charge of the main and intercepting sewers. Nothing has been 
done towards putting their quarters on Massachusetts avenue in 
shape. It should not be deferred longer. 

The construction of the many connections with the Metropolitan 
system in East Boston and Charlestown will add greatly to the 
work of this force, which will have to be increased, and proper 
buildings should be constructed for their use without delay. 

At the Pumping-station the conditions are about the same as at 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 331 

the beginning of the year. The amount of sewage pumped has 
increased materially, but the much-needed renewals and additions, 
spoken of so repeatedly in past reports, have been held in abeyance 
by the lack of funds. The force has been kept very busy on the 
regular work and the incidental repairs absolutely necessary to 
keep the pumps in operation. 

Pump No. 4 was shut down while the boxes of the main and 
beam shafts were rebabbited, necessitating jacking-up the engine, 
at a cost exceeding $2,000. A few of the items most needing 
attention are : 

New sleeves for plunger-rods, general repairs on air-pumps, and 
the substitution of rock-shafts for the present valve motion, all on 
pumps Nos. 1 and 2 ; extensive repairs on the pump-well gates, a 
duplicate main steam-pipe 'from the boiler-house, and two (2) new 
cages at the filth-hoist. 

There has been more sludge removed from the deposit-sewer 
during the past year than ever before. Unusual quantities of 
soft sludge were deposited in the lower sections of the sewer 
during the hot months. 

The following is some of the work accomplished by the outside 
force in addition to the regular work : The two scows were put on 
the blocks and thoroughly calked ; the sea-wall at the west shaft 
was repointed over the whole face ; the high board fence around 
the grounds was painted ; and a new machine for moving the 
sludge in the north deposit- sewer is being constructed to replace 
the old one that gave out. 

The two sewer- boats, kept in the deposit-sewers, became useless 
and were replaced by new ones. The sludge-tank is getting 
beyond many more repairs, and it is only a question of a short 
time before it will have to be replaced by a new one. The 
flooring of the wharf will have to be renewed this year, as it is 
hardly safe. 

When this is done, it would be well to make the extension that 
has been recommended in previous reports. Tests of the tunnel, 
to determine its condition as regards deposits, give a better result 
than has been shown for several years. Waves in the tunnel have 
been noticed more frequently than usual ; and I would suggest the 
placing of automatic gauges, at favorable points, to obtain data, 
from which the cause might be determined. 

At Moon Island, considerable work has been done outside of the 
regular routine work. The walls in two divisions of the reservoir 
were repointed, as also was considerable brick masonry on the 
buildings and ventilators of the discharge-sewers. A large 
amount of gravel was hauled to different points on this property, 
to repair damage done to banks and roads by the storms, and for 
the necessary filling in the cove. 

An old building was remodelled for the use of the night-men 
when off duty, to take the place of the inadequate quarters in the 
gate-house. 

Two old buildings at Squantum, that were unsafe, were razed. 

I give the following statement of what is needed at Moon 
Island and Squantum. It is imperative that some of this should

be done this year, but all of it is necessary : the building of a boat 
chamber on the outfall sewer ; the laying of a 6-inch cast-iron 
water-pipe along the outfall sewer from the reservoir to the con- 
nection chamber, with a hydrant at each manhole, for use in wash- 
ing off the tie-rods and the upper sewer, to prevent odors ; the 
complete renewal of upper staging in 6-foot gallery in each 
division of the reservoir, and also of all tie-rods and cross-pieces ; 
the building of a new barn and shed or storehouse at Moon 
Island ; the building of a new shed or storeroom (temporary) at 
east shaft ; the laying of a new floor at the lower gate-house ; 
the removal of iron gates in the outfall sewer, for repairing, and 
also for renewal of all anchor-bolts, which latter work cannot be 
done until the boat chamber mentioned is built ; pointing and 
repairing of walls in two divisions of the reservoir, and on the 
buildings ; setting of gauges at east shaft and at connection cham- 
ber ; building a stone wall and repairing roadway at Squantum ; 
painting both iron and wooden fences at reservoir, and improved 



Sewer assessments have been made by this division for the year 
ending January 31, 1896, in accordance with Chapter 402 of the 
Acts of 1892, and amendments thereto, to the amount of 
$202,110.06, and; the bills have been deposited for collection with 
the City Collector. 

Bills for sewer assessments, amounting to $3,557.98, have also 
been deposited for collection, representing those estates assessed 
under Chapter 456 of the Acts of 1889, and amendments thereto, 
which have made connection with the public sewers during the 
year ; making the total amount of assessments deposited for col- 
lection $205,668.04. 

There remain on the books of this division, at 5 per cent, inter- 
est, $32,864.35, representing the assessments under the Acts of 
1889, and amendments thereto, for these estates which have not 
been connected with the sewers for which they were assessed, and 
bills for which will be deposited for collection as the connections 
are made. This sum represents 24.8 per cent, of the total assess- 
ments made under those Acts. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $4,474.07 have been collected 
from estates upon which no sewer assessment was ever paid, 
in accordance with Chapter 36, Section 10, of Revised Ordinances. 
Permits have been issued to licensed drain -layers to make 3,071 
connections with the public sewers, and the work done under these 
permits has been inspected and a record of same made on the 
plans of this division. 

The following tables and statements will show the amount of 
money expended and work done by this division during the year :

Street Department — Street-Watering Division. 413 

Income. 

During the year the Division watered in front of 127 school- 
houses, 9 police-stations, and 39 engine-houses. The Board of 
Police and the Fire Department agreed to pay for the service, as 
they have formerly done, but the School Board refuses, on the 
ground that they have no appropriation for the purpose, although 
they did pay for such service in 1891 and 1892. It is customary 
for departments rendering service for other branches of the City 
Government to charge for the work done, as appropriations are 
made for specific public work, and each department has money 
or should have it for service which they are willing to accept or 
request. Why the School Board should refuse to pay our fail- 
charge is not altogether apparent. 

The following sums were charged for street-watering, and bills 
for the same deposited with the City Collector during the financial 
year ending January 31, 1896 :

The above summary shows that 112 carts watered 301.92 miles 
of macadam streets this year. Last year 108^ carts, hired by the 
city, 13 J working under contract, watered 292.16 miles.

City Document No. 29. 



The cost of the day work this year, exclusive of supervision, 
was $214 per mile, or $64,532.75, against $229 per mile for the 
day work done last year, and $575 per mile for the contract fresh- 
watering service in the Back Bay, and $460 per mile in the South 
End, and a total expense of $74,296.67. Fresh water was used 
entirely this year.

The above comparison is one of the most satisfactory evidences 
of the good results accomplished by the division this year. To it 
attention is specially directed. 

The cost for watering in the Back Bay, with fresh water, in 
1894 under contract was $575 per mile, while this year the same 
service was more efficiently rendered at an expense of $424 per 
mile. 

The expense in the South End last year for watering was $460 
per mile for fresh water, $630 per mile for salt water, while this 
year the watering was done under day -work at an expense of $277 
per mile.

This represents the watering done upon paved streets for and at 
the expense of the abutters ; it is not compulsory, resting entirely 
with the abutter whether or not he shall have it done. The divis- 
ion's concern in the premises is simply to check exorbitant charges, 
which i4 is but fair to state never occur, and to otherwise protect 
the rights of citizens and the city. 

The table shows that 21 carts watered 36.21 miles of paved 
streets, which is an increase of 1£ carts and 8.28 miles over last; 
year.

This summary shows the amount of watering rendered free of 
cost to the city by the contractors for the franchise of watering for 
the abutters. They agree to give this gratuitous service in return 
for the exclusive privilege of soliciting parsonage within defined 
street-watering districts with the right of using the city's stand- 
pipes and water. The work shown in the above table would cost 
the division about $2,000 to perform.

Increase. 



An increase of 122 standpipes since 1891. 

The carts used for street-watering this year were almost entirely 
of the improved style of manufacture. 

The division owns seven watering carts which were this year loaned 
to contractors who furnished horses and driver, and watered the 
streets at the rate of $4.50 per day, the division receiving thereby 
50 cents per day for the use of the cart. This arrangement was 
deemed more profitable than providing horses and a driver for the 
carts. Two of the carts have been transferred to the Paving Divi- 
sion for use on new macadam work. 

The division is indebted to Mr. J. W. Smith, the Local Fore- 
cast Official, for the receipt of daily weather reports which 
assisted us very much in the working of the carts. 

To the Water Board also we owe our acknowledgments for the 
assistance rendered us in supplying standpipes, and in turning on 
and off the water.
