being as follows : 



Central Office. 
Boston and 

Bridges. 
Bridge Division. 
Ferry Division.

charge of a Deputy Superintendent. 

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.

The )8 was one of great activity in all the 

lines of Street I nent work. In addition to the construc- 

tion of many new streets and the reconstruction of an unusual 
number of old ones, another section of Columbus avenue, from 
Ritchie street to Washington street, was completed, a consid- 
erable amount of work was done on Commonwealth avenue, 
and a beginning made on the great new boulevard, known as 
Columbia road, which was planned, laid out, and the order of 
construction passed, during the current year. The present 
condition of the new avenues is shown by the accompanying 
chart. Brighton and Huntington avenues are completed ; 
Commonwealth avenue is built to Warren street, the 
remainder being still under construction ; Blue Hill avenue 
is completed to Walk Hill street, and the remaining section 
to Mattapan square will be ordered as soon as the question 
of the grade crossing of the New England railroad is set- 
tled, that now being before the Railroad Commissioners ; 
Columbus avenue will be completed early in the coming year, 
the only section not built being that between Roxbury cross- 
ing and Ritchie street ; the new boulevard, Columbia road, 
will be under construction for the two years to come, but 
the sections between Blue Hill avenue and Edward Everett 
square are already fairly under way. 

The construction of Columbia road completes the system 
of boulevards which was commenced with the laying out of 
Commonwealth avenue in the year 1895. The map herewith 
shown gives the location of these great avenues, and the 
complete system of drives and beautiful residential terri- 
tories, which have been developed, can be seen at a glance. 
Starting from the city proper, it will be possible to reach 
almost any of the outlying sections over well-constructed, 
wide avenues. Columbia road, the latest to be laid out, will 
perhaps be the most beautiful drive in the city, reaching as it 
does from Blue Hill avenue to Marine Park, City Point, 
one roadway being designed as a park road, the other as a 
traffic roacl, and the centre space reserved for the electric 
cars. A portion of this road will follow the shores of Dor- 
chester bay, and the proposed plan will develop one of the most 
beautiful drives in any city, and convert what is now practi- 
cally worthless territory into a valuable residential district. 

The plan of treating hill streets, the grade of which is so 
steep as to make them impassable, which was followed in the 
case of Quincy street, Charlestown, and Ruth street, East Bos- 
ton, was adopted for Covington street, South Boston, illus- 
trations of which are inserted here. This form of construc- 
tion seems to be well adapted to streets of this kind.

WASHINGTON STREET, SHOWING OLD AND NEW PAVEMENT. 



<:t Department. 7 

The plan of repairing macadam streets with the steam 
roller by first picking, then lightly coating with stone and 
rolling in, was continued with success, and the coming season 
even more of the work will be done in this way, results show- 
ing that, at a small expense, macadam roads can be kept in 
excellent condition if given frequent care and attention. 
The difficulty at the present time, as it has been in the past, 
is that the maintenance appropriation is not sufficient to fully 
and systematically do this work. From the Paving Division 
maintenance appropriation, aside from the street work, must 
be taken sums sufficient for the removal of snow, cleaning of 
streets in the outlying districts, the placing of all signs, the 
maintenance of the Permit Office, the support of the stables 
and yards, rebates for stone and brick sidewalks, expense of 
numbering buildings, and the administration expenses of the 
Paving Division Office ; thus the amount remaining for street 
repairs is inconsiderable, compared to the amount of work to 
be done. 

The down-town section of the city has received but little 
attention in the last twenty years. A few main thoroughfares 
have been substantially repaved ; but the great proportion of 
the streets are paved with the old small blocks on gravel 
base, and, through the placing underground of wires and 
other structures, have lost their shape, and are in such con- 
dition that constant attention from the force of patch-pavers 
is necessary. 

More strongly then ever should be urged the making avail- 
able of a sufficient appropriation to reconstruct the streets in 
the city proper. Boston in the past few years has expended 
freely in a most progressive way. The system of parks and 
of boulevards has been developed, and in this regard no city 
in the country can surpass what has already been accom- 
plished and made possible to be done in the future. It is, 
however, a matter capable of demonstration that the amount 
of loss to the teaming interests annually caused by the 
rough and uneven pavements, to say nothing of the unsight- 
liness and discomfort to the great mass of citizens, Teduced 
to dollars would equal an immense sum of money. 

Another aspect of this question is that owners of valuable 
and high-taxed property in the city proper certainly have the 
right to ask that the street surfaces in front of their premises 
shall be well shaped, well drained, and well cleaned. From 
every point of view the city would be the great gainer by 
doing the work necessary in the down-town section in a short 
period of time, rather than continuing the present system of 
doing a bit here and a bit there, and constantly repairing and 



8 City Document No. 34. 

patching ; and for this purpose, as has been clone by cities in 
other States, an act should be passed by the Legislature 
allowing the city of Boston to reconstruct the down-town 
streets by an appropriation made outside the debt limit, and 
$500,000 a year should be allowed for the term, say, of three 
years. 

It must certainly be the wish of the citizens of Boston, that 
the streets of the city should be well paved and clean. 

The press of this city might do a good work, when con- 
trasting New York and Boston street conditions, if they 
would at the same time point out the causes of difference, 
namely, that New York has for the past three or four years 
expended several millions of dollars in substantially resurfac- 
ing and rebuilding — largely with asphalt — all the city streets. 

It has been the custom for some years past for the City 
Council to appropriate each year a sum of money for street 
reconstruction. This money, with the exception of three or 
four assignments for special work, has been allotted by wards 
in equal sums, twenty-five wards receiving $25,000 each with- 
out regard to the necessities of the different localities, and the 
work has been done by the street department under this limita- 
tion. This practice is very objectionable, for the reason that 
every year certain work must be done in some wards which 
exceeds the amount of $25,000. This is particularly true in 
the down-town section where every year a certain amount of 
block paving and asphalting should be done. I would recom- 
mend as a matter of department economy and for the general 
good of the city that the coming loan bill be passed as one 
appropriation, and the distribution and expenditure of the 
money be placed in the hands of the Superintendent of 
Streets. Under this arrangement, the most necessary work 
in all sections of the city could be done, no wards would 
suffer, and the present unsatisfactory conditions in certain 
localities might be removed. 

Asphalt pavement is well adapted for the street surfacing 
of a large portion of this city, now macadamized or granite- 
paved, and the department is in receipt of many requests 
from individuals and from the City Council for this pavement. 

The total amount of sheet asphalt pavement in Boston is 
191,682 square yards, or 10.81 miles in length. It is dis- 
tributed over 108 streets and parts of streets, the largest con- 
tinuous stretches being on Columbus avenue and Huntington 
avenue. Of the total amount 112,216 square yards have 
been laid within five years, and are still under a maintenance 
guarantee from the contractors. The remainder, 79,466 
square yards in area, is maintained in the manner of all other 



. eet Department. 9 

city pa 1 era Up to the past year, the area maintained by 

the city was comparatively small; but in 1896 the guarantee 
expired on 32,050 square yards, and in 1897, on 30,118 square 
yards, and in 1898, 10,145 square yards more will come under 
the direct care of the city. 

The street-cleaning work now done by the Paving Division, 
I believe should be transferred to the care of the Street-Clean- 
ing Division, except that done in the semi-annual cleaning of 
the streets in the spring and fall, when both divisions work 
together. This matter I will touch on under the general 
subject of street cleaning. 

While the relations of this department with the railroad 
and other corporations occupying the streets have in most 
cases been pleasant, and without friction, the companies gen- 
erally evidencing a desire to do their work properly, at the 
same time, with the best intentions on the part of the companies 
and the most careful supervision that can be given by this 
department, there must be a certain deterioration in the street 
surfaces caused by their work ; and I believe that it would be 
but fair and proper that some system be adopted whereby this 
loss might be made good to the city by those companies 
occupying the streets. This might be done either in the form 
of a percentage tax on the receipts of the companies, or a 
fixed charge of so much for their trench openings, the price 
to be based upon the depth and width of trench and kind of 
pavement. The ordinance requiring a bond to be filed by 
each company guaranteeing its work for six months should be 
amended by extending the time to twelve months, as all the 
work done in the late summer, expires in the winter season, 
when it is impossible to make proper examination or to do 
proper work. 

The most notable work done by this division the past year 
was as follows, viz. : 

Blue Hill avenue boulevard completed to Walk Hill 
street and Columbus avenue between West Walnut park and 
Ritchie street. 

Columbia road sub-graded between Blue Hill avenue and 
the New England railroad. 

These streets have been paved with large granite blocks 
with pitch joints on concrete base, viz. : 

Bulfinch street, Congress street between State street and 
Exchange street, North street between Merchants row and 
Union street, State street between Washington and Commer- 
cial streets, Washington street between Kneeland street and 
a point 200 feet south of Dover street, and Winthrop square. 



10 City Document No. 34. 

These streets have been paved with large granite blocks 
with pitch joints on a gravel base, viz. : 

Charles street between Cambridge street and Leverett 
street, Washington street, 200 feet south of Dover to Waltham 
street, and Water street between Washington street and 
Devonshire street. 

These streets have been paved with large granite blocks, 
gravel joints on a gravel base, viz. : 

Dudley street, between Brook avenue and Upham's corner, 
Mam street, from Miller street across Mead street and 
Tremont street from Columbus avenue to Sarsfield street. 

Work has been in progress on twenty-one streets under the 
" 323 " Act, eight of which have been completed.

The work and organization of the Sewer Division has very 
greatly increased during the past year, this being made 
possible by the passage of legislation (Chapter 426 of the Acts 
of 1897 ) giving the city of Boston the right to borrow annually 
$1,000,000 for the construction of sewerage works, these works 
to be assessed on all estates benefited. The act also pro- 
vided that a rental charge should be made for the use of 
sewers of a sum equal to the amount required for their main- 
tenance and care. In former years it has been necessary for 
the City Council to pass in detail, appropriations for sewers, 
and as a result many great improvements which have been 
needed for years have been neglected owing to the difficulty 
of securing sufficient appropriations. Under the new act, this 
is done away with, and the most necessary work has been 
undertaken at once. The expenditures under the new act 
for construction for the first few years will be very consider- 
able, but at the end of that time many of the large pieces of 
construction work will be accomplished, and the amount 
required will become less from year to year. The problem 



EET DEPAETME 11 

of surf a icli has so long troubled the depart- 

ment, is also solved by this legislation, and the most import- 
ant brook channels have been taken in hand, and the work 
already commenced. A general study of the sewerage system 
of the entire city is being made, and the development hence- 
forth will be on established and scientific lines, instead of 
following what has been the custom in the past — to con- 
struct, not according to the needs, perhaps of the near future, 
but as allowed by the limitations of the appropriation. 

A great amount of work which has been done in recent years 
for the necessary relief of certain territories has not been de- 
signed to meet or connect with the future developments of 
sewers, and in many cases this has brought up a very serious 
problem of rebuilding sewers of quite recent construction. 

Already much has been accomplished which gives very great 
relief to certain sections where the sewers were badly over- 
crowded, and the overflows of insufficient size, or the condition 
so bad as to cause a back-up in time of rainfall. Under this 
new act, I believe it safe to predict that in a few years no city 
in the country will be better sewered than the city of Boston; 
and in no city will it be more easy for the citizen to secure new 
sewers where needed or relief from improper conditions. 

Following is the full text of the new act, under which, 
as stated above, the work of the Sewer Division is now con- 
ducted : 



[Chapter 426.] 

AX ACT RELATIVE TO THE SEWERAGE WORKS OE 
THE CITY OF BOSTON. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Section 1. The city council of the city of Boston shall annually 
appropriate, to be met by the issue of bonds as hereinafter provided, 
sums not exceeding one million dollars in any one year, for con- 
structing sewerage works in said city, and shall also appropriate, to 
be met by the annual charges hereinafter provided for, such sums 
as the mayor of said city shall deem sufficient for maintaining and 
operating the sewerage works, and such sums as the city treasurer 
of said city shall each year determine to be the amount to be used 
for the sinking funds for bonds issued for sewerage works, which, 
with all other amounts so us< d and their accumtilations, will pay all 
such bonds at maturity; and there shall also be used for said sinking 
funds all premiums received from the sale of said bonds, and all 
amounts received for breach of any contract for constructing sewer- 
age works, or for securities deposited as security for making such 
contracts and declared to be forfeited to the city, or for sales of 
property. All sewers, drains, pumping stations and other works 



12 City Document No. 34. 

for the collection or disposal of sewage, or surface or ground water 
in said city, shall be included in the term " sewerage work," as used 
in this act, and no such work shall hereafter be constructed in said 
city, except under authority of this act, unless the same has been 
ordered to be constructed before the passage thereof. 

Sect. 2. The board of street commissioners of said city from 
time to time, with the approval of the mayor, may order that sewers 
or drains be constructed in said city; that streams or water courses 
within the limits of said city be filled up or diverted from their origi- 
nal channels; that any such channel or any new channel be wid- 
ened, deepened, paved or covered; that closed or open sewers or 
conduits be constructed for the drainage of lands, or that any part 
of any such stream or water course be so treated, or that any one 
or more of such things be done. 

Sect. 3. Said board may take for said city by purchase or other- 
wise any lands in fee, and any rights or easements in lands, sewers, 
water courses and ways, which said board may deem necessary for 
sewerage works, and in order to take any such lands, water courses, 
rights or easements other than by purchase, said board, or a major- 
ity thereof, shall sign and cause to be recorded in the registry of 
deeds for the county of Suffolk, a statement that the same are taken 
for sewerage works, describing the same as certainly as is required 
in a common conveyance of land, and the lands, water courses, 
rights or easements so described shall upon such recording become 
the property of said city. 

Sect. 4. The Superintendent of streets or such other officer as the 
mayor of said city shall from time to time direct shall carry out such 
order, and may at the expense of said city construct and maintain 
such work under or over any water course or private land, railroad 
or public way, in such manner as not to unnecessarily obstruct or 
impede public travel, and may alter or change the location or grade 
of any public way in which any such work is constructed, may alter 
or change the course of any water course, and in general may do 
any other act or thing deemed by him to be necessary in construct- 
ing or maintaining such work. 

Sect. 5. Said city shall pay all damages sustained by the owner 
of any land, water course, right or easement taken by said board, or 
injured in any manner, or by any person, in doing any act or thing 
under section four of this act, the same to be agreed upon by said 
board with the approval of the mayor and said owner, and if they 
cannot agree the damages shall, on the petition of said owner or 
mayor, be determined by a jury of the superior court for the county 
of Middlesex in the manner provided by law with respect to lands 
taken for highways in said city of Boston, and costs shall be taxed 
and execution issued in favor of the prevailing party, as in civil 
cases. Any person whose water rights are thus taken or injured 
may apply as aforesaid within three years from the time of such 
taking or injury, and not afterwards. 

Sect. 6. The treasurer of said city, to meet the expenses incurred 
in constructing any sewerage works heretofore or hereafter ordered 
to be constructed in said city, shall from time to time on the request 
of said board, approved by the mayor, issue to the total amount 
appropriated, but not exceeding oue million dollars in any one year, 
bonds of said city, registered or coupon, as said treasurer shall from 
time to time determine, and the same shall not be considered in de- 
termining the limit of indebtedness of said city; said bonds shall 



eet Department. 13 

have pri hereof the words Sewerage Loan, shall he 

countersigned by the mayor and be made payable in terms of thirty 
years from their date; and 'shall bear such rates of interest not 
exceeding four per cent, per annum, payable semi-annually on the 
first day of January and the first clay of July of each year, and be 
issued and disposed of in such amounts, in such modes, and at such 
times and prices, as said treasurer with the approval of the mayor 
shall from time to time determine. 

Sect. 7. The board of street commissioners, with the approval 
of the mayor, shall annually before the first day of July determine 
just and equitable sewerage charges to be paid by estates in said 
city for the construction, maintenance and operation of the sewerage 
works, taking into consideration in determining the charges the 
necessity of the works as caused by each estate, the amount of use 
thereof, if any, by the estate or its occupants, the benefit received 
therefrom by the estate, the amount of any assessment for a sewer 
paid by any owner of the estate, the length of time which has elapsed 
since such payment, and the use, if any, that has heretofore been 
made of the sewerage works by the occupants of the estate, and such 
other matters as they shall deem just and proper. The determina- 
tion of such charges as aforesaid shall be final in all cases, and the 
amount thereof as determined for each estate shall be a lien thereon 
until paid, and said board shall notify the board of assessors of said 
city of the amount thereof forthwith after it has been determined, 
and the same shall be included in the next tax bill on the estate 
transmitted by said board to the collector, or in a tax bill therefor 
if no other tax bill is issued for such estate, and be collected as a 
part of the taxes on the estate. 

Sect. 8. All sewers and connections ordered to be made in 
constructing any way under the authority of chapter three hundred 
and twenty-three of the acts of the year eighteen hundred and ninety- 
one, and of acts in amendment thereof or in addition thereto, shall 
be deemed to be constructed under the authority of this act, and the 
expenses therefor shall not be considered in determining the asses- 
sable cost of work, to be assessed under the authority of said acts. 

Sect. 9. No person shall destroy or injure any sewerage work of 
said city, or without lawful authority therefor pollute or place or 
maintain any obstruction in any natural watercourse therein; and 
whoever violates any provision of this section shall for each offence 
be punished by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars or by 
imprisonment in the house of correction not exceeding six months, 
or by both such fine and imprisonment. 

Sect. 10. The supreme judicial court and any justice thereof, 
and the superior court and any justice thereof, shall have jurisdiction 
in equity, on the complaint of said city by its attorney, to enforce 
the provisions of this act and to prevent any violation thereof. 
[Approved May 22, 1897. 

Stony Brook. 

The work of connecting the Commissioners' channel at the 
inlet chamber, near Pynchon street, with the portion of the 
same channel built by the New York, New Haven and Hart- 
ford Railroad Company, has been completed this year, so that 
feibe Commissioners' channel is now built continuously from the 



14 City Document No. 34. 

Back Bay Fens to Boylston station, with the exception of a 
small section near the site of the inlet chamber which is 
still open and uncompleted, pending the settlement of the 
claims of the Boston Belting Company. When the terms 
of this settlement are made, this piece will be completed 
either by building a channel of uniform size through the inlet 
chamber, or by putting in some form of gates or weir at this 
point. 

During the coming year surveys are to be made to de- 
termine the line of the extension of this covered channel to 
the Hyde Park line. If possible a shorter and straighter 
line lying, mostly in the public streets, will be selected. 

Next winter the city should petition the Legislature for 
permission to make a loan outside the debt limit, for the pur- 
pose of extending this channel as far as Forest Hills. The 
channel will be built as a covered conduit, as it lies through 
a thickly settled part of the city where an open channel is 
very objectionable. 

Surface Drainage. 

Under the provisions of the Sewerage Act, chapter 426, 
of the Acts of 1897, takings are to be made of all the brooks 
and natural water-courses of the city, and during the coming 
year extensive improvements will be carried out. Work has 
already been started upon Tenean brook which, when com- 
pleted, will relieve the Lonsdale and Templeton streets 
district, the Geneva-avenue district and the district around 
the so-called " Clay Pits," and will also relieve the over- 
crowded sewer in the vicinity of Gibson and Park streets, 
where at present, in time of heavy rainfall, the manhole covers 
are forced some feet into the air, and the streets and fields 
flooded. 

Canal-street System. 

A very important and necessary piece of work, commenced 
last year, with a partial appropriation made by the City 
Government under the law then in force, was the construction 
of the Canal-street relief sewer. This was carried last year 
from the interceptor on Atlantic avenue through Central 
street, India street and a portion of Commercial street. 
This will be continued the coming year, and probably com- 
pleted to the connection of the Canal-street sewer, near 
Causeway street. 

The route of this sewer, was originally projected through 
Clinton and Blackstone streets and Haymarket square. 



_ARTMENT. 15 

On account of the fact that if the Boston Transit Com- 
mission should determine to build a subway in Hanover 
street, the grade of this subway would be so. low that it 
would be necessary to siphon the sewer; the route was 
changed to go from Clinton street, through Fulton and 
Cross streets, to Hay market square, for the reason that, at 
the point where Cross street crosses Hanover street, the 
proposed grade of the subway is high enough to allow the 
sewer to be carried under it without siphoning. 

Sewers have also been built in Atlantic avenue, by which 
the pollution has been removed from the Mercantile wharf 
and adjacent docks, and in Charles and Allen streets, reliev- 
ing the condition of the sewer system in Brighton and Allen 
streets, and also in South Market street and many other 
small streets. 

The Boston Transit Commission, in connection with other 
work, has rebuilt sewers in Adams square, Beacon and 
School streets, Cornhill, Hanover street, Tremont street and 
Tremont row, and Washington street. 

The building of the South Union station has resulted in a 
general remodelling of the sewer system in that part of the 
city. The sewers in Beach, East, Essex and Summer streets 
have been combined and carried out, and a new outlet sewer 
built in Summer-street extension. 

About 700 feet of the interceptor in Cove street has been 
rebuilt and carried out around the head-house of the station, 
and a very large sewer built from Cove street, across the rail- 
road land, a short distance north of Mt. Washington avenue, 
which is designed to take the sewage of Kneeland and Har- 
vard streets district. On account of the low grade at which 
the railroad subway is designed across Mt. Washington 
avenue, this sewer had to be very much depressed, the crown 
of the sewer being at Grade 3 ; and as there was not sufficient 
weight of material over the sewer to resist tidal pressure, a 
particular form of construction was adopted, the arch of the 
sewer being held down by bent rails, and carried over the 
sewer, and bolted down on each side of the sewer to the pile 
caps underneath, as shown in accompanying cut. 

The most important work which is contemplated for the 
coming year in the city proper is the completion of the Ter- 
minal sewers above mentioned, and continuing the large 
sewer under the railroad yard up Kneeland and South streets, 
from the interceptor to Harvard-street' sewer, and the com- 
pletion of the Canal-street sewer. 

A district regulator will also be built on the interceptor, 
near Summer street, and a regulator in Kneeland street, near 



16 City Document No. $4. 

Cove street, connecting with the interceptor by a small brick 
sewer in Kne eland street. At the request of the Terminal 
Company, a portion of the intercepting sewer, near the loca- 
tion of the gas-holders at Federal-street bridge, will be rebuilt 
at its expense, in order to enable the city to abandon the 
portion of the existing interceptor which crosses under the 
proposed location of the Terminal Company's subway at this 
point. The house sewer will be built in the new Dorchester 
avenue, between Summer street and Mt. Washington avenue. 
The North Market-street sewer needs to be rebuilt ; also, 
sewers in India, Milk and adjoining streets, which are in bad 
condition. 

In Commercial street, near Clark street, the sewer system 
is excessively old and leaky, and must be remodelled, and 
probably entirely rebuilt, as the tide rises and falls freely in 
these sewers at the present time. 

In Charlestown and East Boston, the work on the connec- 
tions of the North Metropolitan sewer will be continued and 
completed the following year. This will mean for these 
localities a great relief from the former unpleasant and 
unhealthy disposition of the sewage on the flats. 

A large amount of sewer work is required in West Rox- 
bury, and the coming year will be an active one in that 
locality. Owing to the completion of the Neponset Valley 
Metropolitan sewer through this territory, many sewers can 
now be built which before were not possible ; and large areas, 
which for a long time have been partially developed, can now 
be made available for residence. 

The abolition of grade crossings at Roslindale and Spring- 
street stations will necessitate some changes in the surface 
drainage at these points, and will allow the proper develop- 
ment of the sewer system for the Hewlett-street district, 
which has been held back on account of these proposed 
changes. 

A very unusual amount of sewer work has been completed 
in Dorchester the past year; and, in addition to the great 
number of small sewers, might be mentioned the Rosemont 
and Mill-streets main sewer, which will be carried on in con- 
nection with the building of the covered channel for the 
southern branch of Tenean brook. 

The completion of the Columbia-road boulevard will 
require a large amount of sewer work to be done in that 
section the coming season, which has already been com- 
menced. A new sewer system will also be constructed for 
the northern half of Savin Hill, including the portion of 
Savin Hill avenue between the railroad and Grampian way. 



l.^x.^et Department. 17 

In addition to the considerable amount of ordinary sewer 
work in South Boston, there has been completed the past 
year the B and Seventh-streets overflow, and also the sewer 
in Dorchester avenue between B and D streets. Included 
in the work remaining to be done in this section are the 
B-street and Kemp-street outlets. 

About 2,100 feet of the West Roxbury low level sewer 
has been completed this year. The building of the sewer 
system in Columbus avenue, between Roxbury crossing and 
Dimock street, is in progress. The relief sewer for the 
Notre Dame-street district is well under way, and will be 
completed in another year. This will relieve this section, 
which has suffered for many years from floods and surface 
water. ' The Dorchester-brook sewer has been extended from 
Norfolk avenue to Clifton street. The long-needed rebuild- 
ing of Harrison-avenue main sewer has been nearly com- 
pleted this year, and this will enable the city to correct the 
sewer system of the adjacent territory. A considerable 
amount of new work has been done hi the new territory 
south of Massachusetts avenue, and adjoining the park. 
There is still under consideration the building of house 
sewers to relieve from sewage the old Stony-brook channel 
between Huntington avenue and Elmwood street. This old 
channel should be rebuilt, and a general system of sewerage 
for that district introduced. As this involves a very large 
expenditure, the matter has been held in abeyance until other 
more important work is accomplished. This matter will be 
given careful study the coming year. 

Muddy -river conduit in Brookline avenue should also be 
repaired, and a considerable portion of it rebuilt. This also 
is a very extensive work. 

A considerable amount of work has been accomplished in 
Brighton. The coming year a large number of petitions for 
house sewers will receive attention, and the matter of surface 
drainage of this territory will be taken in hand. 

There has been considerable complaint from residents in 
the neighborhood of the Back Bay Fens regarding sewage 
deposits. It is claimed, and justly so, that the Stony brook 
watei is contaminated with sewage, and that the settlement 
of the past twelve years, since the Fens were constructed, 
has resulted in a very large amount of objectionable de- 
posits. There is but one way to overcome this difficulty, 
and that is to extend the Stony brook channel to Charles 
river. This would cost a very considerable amount of 
money, and the first portion to be undertaken would be the 
reconstruction of about 4,500 feet of the old Stony brook 



18 City Document No. 34. 

channel, at an estimated cost of about $250,000. Ultimately 
the new channels of Stony brook should be extended to the 
Charles river. 

It is important that the Fens should be cleaned, and the 
existing deposits of sewage removed. I would recommend 
that an appropriation be made for this purpose, and this 
would undoubtedly for some time to come remove any 
serious objections. It is estimated that this would require 
the sum of $25,000. 

In the last annual report a brief account was given of the 
controversy between the Metropolitan Sewerage Commission 
and the city of Boston, and the matter was followed up 
during the past year. Finally, an agreement was arrived 
at, and a contract drawn for five years, from 1896 to 1900, 
inclusive, by which, the amount the Metropolitan Sewerage 
Commission will pay the city of Boston for the rental of its 
sewer system is denned. As a matter of record, a copy of 
this contract. will be found in the Sewer Appendix, page 251. 

Upon the execution of this agreement, the department 
proceeded with the work of enlarging the sewage storage 
reservoirs at Moon Island, a contract was let, and work has 
been begun. The result of this construction will be the 
doubling of the capacity of the reservoirs, and it is expected 
that they will prove sufficient for all requirements likely to 
be made until the year 1905. If at this time the volume 
of sewage becomes so great as to overtax the reservoirs, fur- 
ther extensions will have to be made, for which there is 
ample room on the island. 

At the same time, the pumping plant at the Calf Pasture 
has been thoroughly everhauled, and its capacity increased. 
A contract has been made for designing a new 72,000,000- 
gallon sewage-pump, which is to be set upon a foundation 
built for that purpose when the original plant was put in. 
The design for this pump will be completed during the com- 
ing year, and a contract let for its construction, it is expected, 
during the succeeding year. 



SANITARY DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 

$492,670.56 

The past year the collections of this division were as fol- 
lows : 353,725 loads, 54 cubic feet each, of house dirt and 



Street Department. 19 

ashes ; 56,783 loads of house offal, showing a very consider- 
able increase in the amount of material removed. 

No special money being provided for this division, it has 
been necessary to use the maintenance appropriation for the 
purchase of certain supplies which were not estimated when 
the appropriation was made ; and, in the interest of safety, it 
was necessary to expend a considerable sum on the Fort Hill 
wharf. 

The dumping scows also have required a considerable ex- 
penditure in docking and repairs. 

A contract has been made with the New England Sanitary 
Product Company to receive the offal at various dumping 
points, and remove the same to a plant to be constructed by 
them at the Cow Pasture. This will do away with the very 
objectionable practice of dumping this material at sea. The 
contract and plans require that a plant shall be erected by 
the contracting company, substantial in every way, and 
thoroughly adapted to the purposes for which it is to be 
used, and it is- expected that on completion the most perfect 
plant of its kind in this country will be in operation. 

Before the end of another financial year, it is my hope to 
also report a plant in operation for the disposal of the combus- 
tible waste. This matter has received careful attention, but 
it has not been possible as yet to bring about the improve- 
ment. I feel confident, however, that the coining year this 
matter will be taken care of. It will then be only necessary 
for the city to dispose of its solid ash collection, and, as this 
is clean material, there is no objection to either dumping at 
sea or depositing on vacant land. The entire matter of the 
disposition of the waste products of the city will then be 
handled in a proper and sanitary manner. 

As the garbarge must now be handled for final disposi- 
tion, separately from the ashes, it will be necessary to recon- 
struct Fort Hill wharf, so as to allow two scows to dock at 
the same time, there now being but one berth. 

The steel carts put in service last year have proved satis- 
factory, and I would recommend the gradual displacement of 
the old form of wooden cart by new steel dumping carts.

STREET CLEANING DIVISION. 

Expenditure. 

$309,993.38 

Cleaned 13,261 miles of streets ; removed 121,768 loads 
of dirt. 

The work of this division has been carried on substantially 
on the old lines, with the exception of such slight extension 
of the patrol service as the appropriation would allow. The 
work of this division is greatly increased, and the results 
made less satisfactory, from the fact that so large a portion 
of the down-town streets are old and hi poor condition. On 
streets newly constructed with modern paving — either 
asphalt or granite blocks with pitch joints — it is a compara- 
tively easy task to keep the pavements clean ; and on all such 
streets the patrol system is largely used, and as a result' 
these streets are always clean and show up handsomely. 
There is, however, but a very small proportion of the down- 
town area that has been repaved for many years. 

It is desirable that street-cleaning districts be established 
in the sections of the city which are now covered in this work 
by the Paving Division. Under the present plan, as a matter 
of economy, it has been the practice for the Paving Division 
to do the street cleaning in the sections where, at the time of 
this arrangement, there was little or no paving ; and also in 
East Boston. I would recommend that a street-cleaning 
force be established in East Boston, Dorchester and Brighton. 
No stable accommodations being available, and the appropria- 
tion not being of sufficient size to warrant, this plan has not 
been carried out. The street-cleaning forces, however, have 
been sent for the first time, as often as arrangements could 
be made, to Brighton and Dorchester. East Boston is cared 
for by the men of the Charlestown District. 

By the purchase of wharf property in East Boston in 1897, 
it is now possible, if an appropriation can be obtained, to 
make suitable quarters for the establishment of both Street- 
Cleaning and Sanitary Districts in that section of the city. 
In Dorchester, there is available for this purpose the build- 
ings on Gibson street, excellently located, and to be secured 
at a low cost. 

A special appropriation should be made for the removal of 
snow ; it would then be possible to estimate with some accu- 
racy the amount required for domg the work of the year on 
a certain basis.

A more rigid enforcement of the ordinances in relation to 
the throwing of waste materials hito the streets would greatly 
assist the department in setting a higher standard of cleanli- 
ness.

The City Council has greatly neglected this division in the 
matter of appropriations. Until within the past two years 
an appropriation has been made for the reconstruction of cer- 
tain old bridges which were badly out of repair, and the 
maintenance appropriation has never been considered to be 
made for the purpose of doing new work. The care of the 
128 bridges and the payment of draw-tenders and other 
employees and necessary repair stock and supplies is all that 
is contemplated when the maintenance appropriation is made. 

No special money was voted last year, and only by great 
effort was a small amount transferred, which made possible 
some slight reconstruction work on Congress-street bridge, 
whereby it was made safe. Several of the most important 
bridges of the city, where the travel is greatly increased are 
in such a condition that immediate action should be taken. 
Substantially new bridges are required at Congress street, 
Mount Washington avenue and Maiden, and other bridges 
are in need of considerable reconstruction.

During the past year addition has been made to the elec- 
tric motors for assisting teams up the drops. These have 
worked well, and have made possible a better running time 
of the boats. Three boats have been equipped with electric 
lights, now making five boats so provided. Contract has 
been let for the building of a new ferry-boat, the completion 
of which is called for by May 1, 1898. Another boat will be 
immediately contracted for as soon as this one is in service, 
and found to be satisfactory. 

One new drop and tank have been constructed and put in 
place at the South Ferry, East Boston side, and the City 
Engineer recommends that two more be built and placed in 
position. When this is done, all the drops will be practi- 
cally new. Plans and specifications have been prepared for 
a new head-house and the re-arrangement of slips at the 
South Ferry, East Boston side. There is some question as 
to the land-takings, which may delay the prosecution of this 
work. 

The " East Boston " and " Hugh O'Brien " have been 
hauled on the railway, calked and metaled during the past 
year. The boats are now in good condition with the ex- 
ception of the old " Winthrop," which cannot possibly be 
made to do service more than one or two more years. 



STREET WATERING DIVISION. 

Expenditure. 

178,736.72 

Not including water-bills of 

$76,930.40 

The season of 1897 was a very difficult one, unusal 
weather prevailing until late in the fall, making it necessary 
to extend the street watering season. The increase in ex- 
penditure over last year of about -$7,500 was made necessary 
by this lengthening of the season. 

To properly cover the work of street watering, a larger 
appropriation should be made available ; and I would recom- 
mend that for the coming year the watering of all the city 
streets be placed under the supervision of this department, 
and advantage be taken of the Act passed by the Legislature 
of 1897, authorizing this work to be done and the cost 
assessed on the owners of the abutting estates. At the 
present time the city undertakes the care of macadam streets 
only, and the watering of paved streets is done by subs crip- 



,t Department. 23 

tion to private contractors ; thus the burden bears unfairly, 
and the results are not satisfactory. In certain sections of 
the city, particularly in the poorer quarter, where the streets 
are paved, no watering is done for the reason that the people 
are not able to pay, or their great numbers make it difficult 
for arrangements to be made for the work by individual 
efforts. 

Under the Assessment Act the cost of street watering 
would be assessed on the property, and the amount would be 
so small that it could hardly be felt as a hardship. Studies 
are being made along this line, and it is probable that the 
City Council will be asked to authorize the department to 
undertake the street watering under the Assessment Act. 

As mentioned in my last report, it was expected that a 
thorough trial would be given the electric watering car ser- 
vice. The matter, however, was blocked by the management 
of the West End Street Railway Company, and the experi- 
ment still remains untried. Under present conditions, how- 
ever, I anticipate no trouble of this sort the coming season, 
and the subject will be thoroughly gone into. 

Purchase of Supplies. 

The same careful attention has been given through the 
purchasing agent to the purchase of supplies for the depart- 
ment. The establishment of a Central Supply Department 
and stock-room has made it possible to take advantage of the 
market, and the matter of distribution and checking of 
supplies has been given more attention, with good results. 

Stables and Buildings. 

The condition of the buildings occupied by the Street 
Department for stables and other purposes is such that a very 
considerable amount of money could be expended to advan- 
tage, and with an ultimate saving to the city. As far as the 
maintenance appropriation would allow, repairs, painting 
and additions have been made ; but these have necessarily 
been quite limited. In the west yard, on North Grove street, 
there is ample room for the care of a much larger force. 
The buildings at this yard are, with one exception, old, badly 
arranged, and so situated as to cover the ground with the 
least economy of space. Could an appropriation be made, it 
would be possible to re-arrange this yard, so that all the 
horses and teams required for service in that district, by the 
Street-Cleaning, Sanitary and Sewer Divisions, could be pro- 
vided for. What is true of this yard applies to many others. 



24 City Document No. 34. 

In West Roxbuiy, the Paving Division stable is in such con- 
dition that it is hardly worth while to repair; and yet, in its 
present shape, it is almost untenantable. 

A hospital for sick horses is greatly needed. I trust the 
comparatively small amount of money needed for this pur- 
pose will be made available next year. 

An additional number of at least fifty horses could be em- 
ployed with economy and advantage to the general work of 
the department. Stable accommodations, however, are such 
that it is necessary to depend on hired teams. 

Smoke Nuisance. 

Under the provision of the statute relative to the abate- 
ment of the smoke nuisance hi the city of Boston, this work 
has been authoritatively assigned by the Mayor to this de- 
partment for some years. This includes careful inspection 
of all boiler plants and the examination of all plants in the 
matter of smoke nuisance. No boiler permits are granted by 
the Building Commissioner without first receiving the ap- 
proval of this department ; and before this department con- 
sent to these permits, the applicant must make satisfactory 
representation as to the proper equipment of the plant, so 
that no smoke nuisance will arise. 

Although it is a somewhat difficult matter to handle, the 
results of the work of this department in this city have been 
quite satisfactory. One inspector and two assistants devote 
their entire time to this subject. 

Complaints. 

Much attention has been given by the present administra- 
tion to the treatment of complaints and requests received at 
this office, and a system has been developed during the past 
year which it is believed is producing excellent results. In 
past years there appears to have been no uniform method of 
dealing with complaints, each having been treated as an in- 
dividual case. In some cases a memorandum was sent to the 
proper official, in others a formal letter, and sometimes the 
original complaint. In any case there was no regular system 
of obtaining reports or recording the results of such investi- 
gation as was made, and no assurance was given to the Super- 
intendent that the causes of dissatisfaction were removed or 
explained. 

Under the present system, on receipt of a complaint, it is 
immediately stamped with a number (these numbers being 
consecutive), a reference to the proper official of the depart- 



et Department. 25 

ment, aru lent of what action or information is 

desired. ien made on a day book kept for the 

purpose, giving the name of the complainant, number of com- 
plaint, official to whom referred, and memorandum of the 
subject and of the directions given by this office. Thus, in a 
very few minutes from the time of its receipt, the document 
is on its way to the proper official to receive such attention 
as may be required. 

Each complaint so forwarded is required to be returned to 
the Central Office, with a report stating what action has been 
taken, and giving such information as is necessary to a full 
understanding of the case. To avoid any risk of complaints 
being overlooked in the several divisions of the department, 
each complaint on being returned is checked off in the day 
book, and each week a list, by numbers, is sent to the differ- 
ent divisions of any complaints forwarded during the preced- 
ing week and not yet returned. Upon the receipt of such 
notice the official in charge is required either to return the 
documents with explanation of the delay, or to report what 
progress has been made, and what further action is proposed. 

Upon receipt of any complaint, suitable acknowledgment 
is made to the writer. If the cause of complaint is such 
that there must necessarily be some delay, or if there 
are any special circumstances to be explained, a letter is 
written ; but if the matter relates to some fault in the ser- 
vice or to some minor defect in a street or in some of the 
structures under the care of the department, a printed form 
on a double postal card is filled in and sent. This consists 
of a statement (signed by the Superintendent), that the com- 
munication has been received and referred to the proper 
division for action or report, with the number and date of 
the complaint. The reply card attached is addressed to the 
Superintendent of Streets, and contains a printed acknowl- 
edgment that the matter has been satisfactorily attended to, 
with number and subject of complaint and date of receipt, 
and blanks for date of reply and signature of complainant. 

At the bottom of this reply card is left a space for any 
comment which the writer may desire to make, and this can 
be used, if desired, for forwarding a second complaint if the 
former one has not been attended to in a satisfactory manner. 
When a reply card containing such further complaint is re- 
ceived, it is compared with the report (if already on file), 
and forwarded to the same division to which the original 
complaint was sent, and a record made on the day book. 
The number on the card and on the original complaint being 



26 City Document No. 34. 

the same, it is very easy to trace the responsibility for any 
delay which may have occurred. 

Of the acknowledgment cards sent out from this office, letter- 
press copies are taken, making practically as good a record 
in the letter books as though a letter had been written and 
sent, and at a great saving of time. It will be noted that by 
the use of these reply cards the acknowledgment of satisfac- 
tory service by the complainant only requires the insertion of 
the date, and the signature of the writer — the card, as 
already stated, being addressed, ready for mailing. 

The daily record of complaints, in which the numbers 
appear consecutively, is indexed each day alphabetically 
under the names of the complainants. When the complaints 
are finally returned to this office, they are pasted hi file books 
in the order of their numbers, the reply cards being attached 
to the complaints to which they relate, and fully indexed by 
giving the names of the writers and the subjects of com- 
plaint. It is thus easy to turn back to former complaints 
on any particular subject or from any particular correspondent. 

By this system, it is believed that the essential conditions 
of good service are fulfilled, and at a comparatively small 
expenditure of time and labor. It insures the immediate 
transmission of the complaint to the executive officer in 
charge, and his prompt action and report; it gives the cor- 
respondent the assurance that his complaint is receivhig 
attention, enables him with very little trouble to acknowledge 
satisfactory service, and gives him an opportunity to make 
further criticism if he desires ; and finally, it brings all the 
facts in the case before the superintendent in such a manner 
that he can readily forward to the complainant an explana- 
tion of any circumstances in regard to which it is desirable 
that he should be informed. 

It may not be out of place to say that the department not 
only admits the right of every citizen to make reasonable 
complaint, but fully recognizes the fact that intelligent and 
friendly criticism is a most valuable aid to good service, 
amounting as it does to a system of volunteer inspection, and 
supplementing the regular inspection service of the depart- 
ment. The public has shown itself to be very willing to co- 
operate with the department in carrying out the details of 
this system. When the return postal cards were introduced, 
while it was believed that a large proportion would be re- 
turned, it was feared that many would be neglected or for- 
gotten ; but the result has exceeded expectation, the number 
not returned having proved a very small one. Moreover, 
the great majority of complainants, finding themselves met in

a spirit of fairne nth a desire to do what is possible for 

their relief, ha~< i 3d to be reasonable in their demands, 

and anxious only for efficient service and the good of the 
public ; and I wish to take this opportunity to express my 
gratitude to the many good citizens who have given the 
department their co-operation and support in its efforts to 
improve the service and adapt it to the needs of the com- 
munity. 

Signs. 

Greater and more systematic attention has been given this 
year to the placing of street signs. New and more attractive 
styles of double-faced post signs have been devised and 
adopted. While this may seem a comparatively unimportant 
matter, the many favorable comments made by citizens to the 
department show that this improvement has been appreciated. 

The signs placed by this department are made by the San- 
itary Division, but the work of locating is under the super- 
vision and direction of, and the expenditure charged to the 
Paving Division. 

Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 

No work of importance has been undertaken the past year 
on these bridges. The utmost care, however, has been nec- 
essary to keep them safe under the limited appropriation, and \/ 
in good condition for the immense travel. 

I must again express my appreciation of the services of 
my associate, Mr. William J. Marvin, of Cambridge, upon 
whom the detail of the work has largely fallen. 

The matter of a new bridge to Cambridge, as recommended 
hi the last report of this department, is before the present 
Legislature, with an excellent prospect of legislation being 
passed which will make possible the construction of a new 
and adequate bridge. 

Craigie Bridge. 

A new sidewalk has been built on the south side of the 
bridge for the whole length of the Cambridge end, a new 
roadway has been laid for the same distance between the 
sidewalk and the track, one hundred and twenty-five feet of 
new sidewalk has been built on the north side at the Boston 
end, and new timbers were put under the draw to hold it in 
place. The work was done at night so as not to stop travel. 



28 City Document No. 84. 

The pavement on the north side of the bridge for its whole 
length has been repaired, and the following repairs have been 
made on the draw-tender's house : New gutters on piazza, 
new tinning on ell, two chimneys re-topped, two coats of paint 
put on house. The engine-house and iron on pier, and the 
new fence have been painted, and two chimneys re-topped on 
the house at the Cambridge end of bridge. 

The bridge is swept once a week, always after midnight, 
and the roadway is watered with salt water three times daily 
when necessary to lay the dust. The ordinary repairs, and 
sweeping sidewalks and piers have been done by the draw- 
tender and assistants ; draw sheathed when necessary. 

Next year the sidewalk on the north side at the Cambridge 
end will have to be rebuilt, a new fence built, and the roadway 
paved. The sidewalk on the south side Boston end will have 
to be repaired and a new fence built. A part of the piles at 
the Cambridge end have been in place about one hundred 
years, and they have to be looked after very closely to 
prevent accidents. 

Harvard Bridge. 

Harvard bridge is in good condition. At the request of 
the riders of bicycles, for a width of three feet from the curb- 
ing on each side of the bridge, the sheathing which has just 
been completed, was laid lengthwise of the bridge, the balance 
being laid diagonally as heretofore. This flooring lasts about 
nine months, and then repairs have to be made. Last year 
about thirteen thousand feet of the best of the old sheathing 
was saved for patching, making quite a saving, and when 
sheathing the roadway this year about the same quantity was 
saved for use in a similar way next year. 

The cost of sheathing the roadway was $2,795, Boston 
paying one-half. 

The whole length of the iron fence on each side of the 
bridge has been painted. The iron work outside the rail has 
been scraped and painted, and the house on the draw pier 
has been painted. 

The West End Street Railway Company relaid their tracks 
on the bridge at the time the sheathing was done, putting in 
new rails where necessary. The sheathing between the rails 
and between the tracks was renewed with new plank, making 
a much better road than the old one. The West End Rail- 
way Company has always promptly responded to all requests 
for needed repairs or alterations. 

Ordinary repairs on the bridge are made by the draw- 
tender and his assistants. They also clean the surface of the 



Department. 29 

bridge weekly, remove We snow from the sidewalk, and keep 
the electric light globes clean and in order. 

Prison Point Bridge. 

This bridge is in very bad condition. The draw, which is 
of the old-fashioned leaf pattern, is in such condition that it 
is almost impossible to raise it. It would require a consider- 
able outlay to make it work easily, but we do not think it 
advisable to expend much money upon it, as it is expected 
that the Boston and Maine Railroad will begin the work of 
separating the grades of the road and railroad at this point 
next year and the plan for so doing provides for a new high- 
way bridge over the channel. 

The draw-tender's house has been painted outside, the two 
chimneys retopped, and the bridge and draw have been 
sheathed. Ordinary small repairs have been made and 
sweeping done by the draw-tender and assistants. 

West Boston Bridge. 

This bridge is in the same condition as it was last year. 
By watching it closely and making the necessary repairs 
promptly it is kept in good condition for travel. It is a con- 
stant care. We hope the time is not far distant when the 
cities of Boston and Cambridge, with the co-operation of the 
projected elevated railroad company, will see their way clear 
to build a new bridge of stone and iron. 

The paving has been repaired on both sides of the road- 
way the entire length of the bridge. The roof of the engine- 
house has been stripped of the shingles that were badly 
decayed and a tin roof substituted, making it much safer 
against taking fire from sparks which are freely showered 
upon it from the smoke stacks of tugs while lying there. 
The engine-house, sheds and iron work have been painted. 

The bridge has been swept once a week, always after mid- 
night, and watered three times daily with salt water in dusty 
weather. Sweeping piers and draw, cleaning snow from 
draw piers and sidewalks, and ordinary repairs have been 
made by the draw-tender and his assistants. The draw has 
been sheathed when necessary. 

The West End Street Railway Company relaid their 
tracks the whole length of the bridge, it being necessary to 
do so on account of the settling of the pavement, and the 
generally poor condition of the bridge.

APPENDIX A. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE BRIDGE DIVISION. 



927 and 928 Tremont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1898. 

Mr. Benj. W. Wells, Superintendent of Streets. 

Dear Sir, : I respectfully submit my annual report of the 
expenditures, income and operation of the Bridge Division 
of the Street Department for the financial year ending Jan- 
uary 31, 1898. 

There was appropriated for the care and maintenance of 
this division, during the year, the sum of 1125,000. 

The total number of bridges in Boston is 132. This num- 
ber does not include culverts. Four (4) of these bridges, 
viz. : Harvard, Canal, Prison Point, and West Boston, all 
connecting with Cambridge, are under the care of two com- 
missioners, one of whom is appointed by the city of Boston 
and the other by the city of Cambridge. 

Thirty-three are wholly supported by railroad corporations, 
and ninety-nine are supported wholly or in part by the city 
of Boston. « 

There are twenty-three tide-water bridges provided with 
draws ; six (6) of these are operated by steam, four (4) by 
electricity , and thirteen (13) by hand power. 

Maiden bridge, one of the principal bridges operated by 
hand power, is in immediate need of extensive repairs, as it is 
old and badly decayed, and requires constant care to keep it 
in order. 

I would recommend also that steam or electric power be 
substituted to operate the draw. 

Mt. Washington-avenue bridge is also operated by hand 
power, and is second, on the south side, in the number of 
openings to permit vessels to pass through, and has a large 
amount of travel, heavy teaming, etc. 

It is hoped that with the extensive improvements in the 
vicinity of this bridge, provision will be made for its recon- 
struction. 



7 



4 City Documef 

There are twelve tide-watf i great importance, 

operated as follows : Meridia ' ^elsea (North), Dover 

street, and Federal street 1 power. 

Chelsea (South), Warren, 3 River, Congress street, 

L street, and Broadway by steam' power. 

Maiden and Mt. Washington avenue by hand power. 

During the past year four (4) new trucks have been 
placed on Warren bridge, new deck put in, sheathing, etc., 
all the ironwork painted, and the tracks levelled by placing 
oak sleepers two feet apart underneath. A new engine, 
with winches, for the purpose of assisting vessels to pass 
through the draw, thus saving much time to public travel, is 
being placed in position. 

On May 21 a portion of Broadway pier, 118 feet long and 
30 feet wide, fell into the water, carrying with it all cross 
beams and deck, and a large tool-house, necessitating the 
rebuilding of a new pile structure. 

The remainder of the pier is in great need of being rebuilt, 
and should be attended to this year. 

Congress-street bridge needed extensive repairs during the 
past year. The sidewalks on both sides have been recon- 
structed, the deck on road-bed, the bulkhead at the draw, 
and the fender-guards, etc., on the South Boston side, have 
been repaired. 

Close attention should be given to the repairs of this 
bridge the coming year, owing to the immense increase of 
travel over the bridge, on account of the new freight facili- 
ties located at South Boston. 

The following-named bridges were closed to public travel 
for reconstruction and extensive repairs : • 

May 4, Western-avenue bridge, new timbers, new deck and 
sheathing, new sidewalks and piling. 

May 25. Leyden street, East Boston, ironwork scraped 
and painted, new deck and sheathing on road-bed, new 
sidewalks. 

July 26. Blakemore street, new sidewalks. 

August 10. Centre span on Beacon street, ironwork 
cleaned and painted ; new timbers, deck and sheathing. 

September 16. Shawmut avenue stripped of all old wood- 
work ; iron girders properly cleaned and painted; about 
thirty iron braces removed and replaced with new ones ; new 
deck and sheathing. 

November 3. Keyes street, new timbers, new deck sheath- 
ing and new sidewalks. 

November 9. Cornwall street, new timbers, deck sheath- 
ing and sidewalks. 



Street [ — Beidge Division. 5 

November 29. Elmwood street being in such a bad con- 
dition new timbers for deck, sheathing and sidewalks were 
used. 

December 23. Hyde Park avenue, new stone abutments; 
new timbers eight bj^ sixteen inches, two feet apart on centre, 
new deck, sheathing and sidewalks, making a complete new 
bridge. 

The inland bridges have been given a careful inspection 
and all efforts made to keep them in safe condition ; they 
have been thoroughly swept and kept free and clean. 

Good discipline has been maintained among the draw- 
tenders and their assistants on the different draw-bridges. 

They have faithfully and efficiently performed their various 
duties, and no accidents have occurred through neglect of 
duty. 

The material used in repairs has been of good quality, 
has always been promptly delivered, thereby causing no delay 
or disappointment in the performance of work. 

The same care has been exercised to keep on hand dupli- 
cate sets of gearing. 

This precaution will lessen public inconvenience in case 
of accidents. 

I would call attention once more to the fact that more 
suitable headquarters be provided for the mechanical depart- 
ment in this division ; would also recommend that the follow- 
ing-named bridges be provided with proper machinery to 
assist vessels through, and obviate largely the inconvenience 
to public travel. Chelsea (North), Dover street, Federal 
street, Mt. Washington avenue and Meridian street. 

Table of expenditures on structural repairs of bridges 
charged to Bridge Division appropriation, which shows the 
large amount of work accomplished in excess of previous 
years : 

Western avenue to Cambridge 
Broadway pier ..... 
Beacon street (centre span) . 
Shawmut avenue . 
Essex street ...... 



The sum of $903.85, which was spent in construction of 
Essex-street bridge, was in excess of the amount appropriated 
for the same. This was contract work under the Engineer- 
ing Department.

City Document No. 34. 



The following bridges were partially reconstructed and 
repaired, and charged to Special Appropriations : 

Congress street, Cornwall street, Elmwood street, Hyde 
Park avenue, Keyes street, Leyden street, Warren avenue. 

On April 21 a careful inspection of Longwood-avenue 
bridge was made by the Town Engineer of Brookline and 
this division. 

It was thought expedient to close the bridge, and by 
mutual agreement of the town of Brookline and city of 
Boston the bridge was closed to the public, and work of con- 
structing a new bridge commenced at once. 

An appropriation of $150,000 was made for this bridge, 
half of the expense, $75,000, to be paid by the town of Brook- 
line, and half by the city of Boston, Park Department. 

A stone bridge is now in progress of erection in place of 
the old wooden affair, and when completed will be the finest 
in the city. 

Respectfully yours, 

Wm. H. Carberry, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX B. 



EEPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE FERRY DIVISION. 



North Feery, East Boston, February 1, 1898. 

Mr. Benj. W. Wells, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir: I respectfully submit the annual report of the 
expenditures, income and operation of the Ferry Division 
of the Street Department for the financial year ending Jan- 
uary 31, 1898 : 

South Ferry, East Boston side, located at the termination 
•of Lewis street, covering an area of 58,725 square feet of 
land and water. On these premises are one head-house, one 
coal-shed, one work-shop for carpenters, machinists and black- 
smith, one gate-room and oil-room, all in a very poor condi- 
tion. 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, Boston side, located at the termination of 
Eastern avenue, covering an area of 28,135 square feet of 
land and water, upon which is one head-house with canopies 
extending over driveways, one gate-room, three piers which 
form the two slips, and two drops and tanks. 

The wharf property adjoining these premises was leased 
by the Ferry Department in 1881 for 999 years, at a rental 
of $4,000 per year. The whole of it is sub-let to the Public 
Institutions Department for $2,000 per year, making a net 
loss to this division of $2,000 a year, which should be 
borne by Public Institutions Department. 

North Ferry, Boston side, located at the termination of 
Battery street, covering an area of 45,000 square feet of 
land and water, upon which are one head-house with canopies, 
one gate-room and steam-room, three piers which form the 
two slips, and two drops and tanks. 

North Ferry, East Boston side, located at termination of 
Border street, covering an area of 62,138 square feet of land 
and water, upon which are one head-house with canopy, boiler- 
room, oil-room, stable and coal-shed, three piers, which form 
the two slips, two drops and tanks. 



56 City Document No. 34. 

There are eight drops. One new drop and tank have been 
built and put in place during the past year at South Ferry, 
East Boston side, and the City Engineer recommends that 
two more be built and placed in position. When this is done 
all the drops will be then practically new. 

There are twelve piers, only two of which are in good con- 
dition, and extensive repairs should be made on the rest. 
Those at South Ferry, on both sides, are in very poor condi- 
tion, especially on Boston side, where the south pier must be 
entirely rebuilt. 

The head-houses are all in good condition, with the excep- 
tion of the one at South Ferry, East Boston side. Plans 
have been drawn for a new head-house and coal shed, and 
for the rearrangement of the slips at this landing, and it is 
hoped that before long this terminal will be equal, if not 
superior, to any of the others. 

I again repeat my recommendation of last year that Battery 
street be widened from Commercial street to the ferry gates. 

There are seven ferry-boats in use in this division, six of 
them week days and three on Sunday. One is a spare boat. 

During the past year two of the boats the " Hugh 
O'Brien " and "East Boston" have been hauled out on rail- 
way and calked and coppered at a cost of almost $4,000. 
A new propeller boat is undergoing construction and will be 
in commission about May 1, 1898. It will take the place of 
the "Ben Franklin," which has outlived its usefulness. 
The other five boats are in very good condition. The end 
of the " Hugh O'Brien " has been built up the past year,, 
making her good for some time to come. 

A new modern boat should be built to take the place of 
the " Winthrop," which is now twenty-five } 7 ears old. 

During the past year every boat (with the exception of 
"Ben Franklin") has been thoroughly overhauled, both 
machinery and woodwork, and painted throughout. Elec- 
tric lights have been installed on three of the boats as pro- 
vided for by a special appropriation, making five of the seven 
boats equipped with electric lights. 

Electric motors have been installed at all the landings, and 
it is now possible on this account to make schedule running 
time, regardless of weather conditions. 

The south pier at North Ferry, East Boston side, has been 
completely overhauled and repaired at a cost of §2,000. 
This was imperative, as the pier was in a dangerous condition. 

The landing at the South Ferry, East Boston side, was 
raised about 14 inches, this will prevent any but an ex- 
traordinary high tide rising over the landing. Previously

any little increase in the tide necessitated the use of planks 
in order that passengers might reach the boats. 

By reference to the financial and travel schedules you will 
see that the increase of receipts was $4,369.60, increase of 
.foot travel over 431,000 and of team travel 23,500. 
Respectfully yours, 

William F. McClellan, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Offal. 

The method of disposing of offal and garbage during 1897 was, 
as in preceding years, to sell the material to farmers in neighboring 
towns, the portion not disposed of in this manner being towed to 



208 City Document No. 34. 

sea. Out of 56,783 loads collected during the past year in the city 
and suburbs, 43,207 loads, or 76 per cent., was fed to hogs, and 
13,576 loads, or 24 per cent., carried in dumping-boats to the sea. 

On April 1, 1897, the dumping and disposal of offal at Highland 
street, Boxbury, was abandoned, at the solicitation of the Board of 
Health, the Institutions Commissioner, and by vote of the City 
Council. By this action it has, to a certain extent, increased the 
cost of collecting offal in Boxbury and a part of West Boxbury, and 
decreased the revenue to the city from the sale of the material. 

A more sanitary way of disposing of the city offal has long 
been under consideration, and, as the result of investigation made 
by a committee appointed by the city government, a contract for 
a term of ten years was made with the New England Sanitary 
Product Company, in January, 1898, by the provisions of which 
nearly 77 per cent, of the collection is conveyed to an isolated point 
within the city limits and treated by a method known as the 
Improved Arnold process, which disposes of it in an unobjection- 
able manner. Provision was also made for extending the scope of 
the contract so as to include the outlying sections of the city, when 
advisable. 

During the year twenty-two new steel-bodied dumping wagons 
have replaced the same number of wooden wagons which were 
unfit for further service, and it is intended to substitute them gen- 
erally for the wooden wagons, as they are much better adapted for 
the collection of offal. 

Ashes. 

Of the 389,098 loads of ashes collected during the past year, 
243,556 loads, or 63 per cent., were deposited on low lands in the 
outlying districts of the city; 100,905 loads, or 26 per cent., Were 
towed to sea, and the balance, 44,637 loads, or 11 per cent., were 
collected by contractors and used on low lands for filling. 

The material designated " ashes" includes, besides the material 
itself, the general refuse of the city, such as store-sweepings, 
papers, and rubbish of all kinds, and our method of disposing of it 
has many objectionable features. Some of the refuse which is 
towecl to sea is of such light composition that it often floats back 
to the neighboring beaches, and is the cause of frequent complaint 
from the residents. There has also been complaint from dumps 
unavoidably located near residential sections, owing to papers and 
other light refuse being blown about by the winds. 

It is the purpose of this division to obviate this difficulty, at least 
in a measure, by the erection, this year, of one or more furnaces, 
suitable for the burning of such combustible waste, arrangements 
for same being already in progress, and it is estimated that material, 
having a commercial value, which can be culled from the refuse, 
will cover the entire cost of the operation of the proposed furnaces. 
In view of this plan, householders in one section of the city were 
requested, nearly six month ago, to keep papers and other refuse of 
a combustible nature in a separate receptacle, or to tie the same in 
bundles, to facilitate their removal. The system has worked satis- 
factorily where it has been tried, and it will be further extended. 

Owing to the bulky nature of the material termed ashes, it was 
deemed advisable to enlarge the ash-carts by the addition of boards 
on the sides and ends, thereby increasing their capacity by about 
one-third. Some objection was made to this change by employees 



Street Department — Sanitary Division. 209 

in this division, but the introduction of a scales at one of the larger 
dumps soon demonstrated the utility of the measure, the average 
weight of several thousand loads collected in the enlarged carts being 
only 1,500 pounds. If the separation of papers and light refuse 
from ashes can be successfully compassed throughout the city, a 
suitable cart for collecting same will be introduced. 

A change, productive of good results, was made in the collection 
of store-sweepings in what is known as the business section of the 
city, the occupants of stores, etc., being requested, by the distribu- 
tion of printed notices, to put out all waste material previous to 
7.30 A.M., so that the collectors could remove it while the streets 
were passable, much annoyance and inconvenience which had pre- 
viously existed being in a large measure prevented. 

I would again call your attention to the dilapidated condition of 
the stables in charge of this division, and earnestly recommend that 
a special appropriation be made for their renovation. 

Several 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 sepa- 
rated from ashes or other refuse, as is insisted upon by the depart- 
ment, or else that the receptacles were kept in some inaccessible 
place, or were larger than the ordinances provide and the regula- 
tions of the department permit. 

In order that householders might understand these regulations 
and that the work be not unnecessarily delayed, the following circu- 
lar was issued : 

It will be noted that the circular also requires a third separation, 
viz.: that all refuse other than household ashes or offal be placed in 
a third receptacle. This was done in anticipation of an arrangement 
for caring for the combustible waste separate from the heavy ash 
by incineration. 

Notice to Housekeepers. 

On and after Monday, Oct. 11, 1897, nothing but GARBAGE, FOOD 
CANS and FOOD BOTTLES must be put into the garbage receptacles, 
and nothing but DUST and ASHES must be put into the receptacles for 
ashes. 

ALL PAPERS, LIGHT WASTE and other GENERAL REFUSE 
must be placed in a third receptacle, or, if too bulky, must be tied in 
bundles to prevent their beiug scattered in handling, and MUST BE 
PROTECTED FROM THE WEATHER until collected by the proper 
authorities. 

GENERAL REFUSE includes the following: 

Paper, Excelsior, Old shoes and rubbers, 

Rubbish, Straw, Leather and rubber scraps, 

Bottles, Mattresses, Carpets, 

Rags, Old clothes, Broken glass, etc., 

Tin cans, Pasteboard boxes. 

The Superintendent of Streets of the City of Boston is required to 
remove ashes and OTHER REFUSE, and is governed by the following 
provisions of law: 

Acts of 1892, Chapter 419, Section 112. — All receptacles for ashes, 
waste and other substances, liable, by spontaneous combustion or other- 
wise, to cause a fire, shall be made of incombustible material, satis- 
factory to the inspector. Every building used as a tenement or lodging 
house shall have outside, and appurtenant to it, a suitable space, satis- 
factory to the inspector, for the temporary deposit of garbage and other 
refuse matter. 



210 City Document No. 34. 

Revised Ordinances of 1892, Chapter 43, Section 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. 

Revised Ordinances of 1892, Chapter 43, Section 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. 

The Superintendent of Streets, therefore, calls attention to the neces- 
sity of keeping ASHES and OTHER REFUSE MATTER as required 
by law, and gives notice that NO REFUSE WILL BE REMOVED 
unless protected from the weather, and so placed as to be easily 
removed, and kept as follows: 

1. ASHES must be kept free from all other refuse matter and in 
metallic vessels. 

2. HOUSE OFFAL or garbage must be kept free from all other 
refuse matter (except FOOD CANS and FOOD BOTTLES), and in 
suitable vessels. 

3. ALL OTHER REFUSE must be kept free from ashes and garbage 
and in suitable vessels, or in bundles firmly fastened, so as to prevent 
the rubbish from being scattered in handling.

Patrick O'Shea, Superintendent of Streets. 

Deputy Superintendent, Sanitary Division. 

Also the annual spring cleaning of the entire city was under- 
taken with good results, and the following notice issued to the 
public : 

CITY OF BOSTON. 
Notice to Housekeepers and Tenants. 

Housekeepers and other occupants of dwellings are requested to 
place their house and cellar dirt and sweepings in the streets opposite 
their premises between the hours of sunrise and 2 o'clock P.M. of the 
following days: Monday, May 3; Tuesday, May 4; Wednesday, May 5; 
Thursday, May 6; Friday, May 7, when they will be removed by the 
city carts. After which times no person will be allowed to place any 
dirt, ashes, filth or rubbish of any kind whatever in any of the ways, 
streets or places of the city, without a permit from the Superintendent 
of Streets. 

Dirt of any kind not to be placed in the streets on Saturday. 

Benjamin W. Wells, 

City Hall, Boston, 1897. Superintendent of Streets. 

Note. — This circular, printed in English, Hebrew and Italian, was posted in prom- 
inent places by the regular bill-posting companies, and for a week was also carried 
on the sides of all the wagons and carts owned by this division. 

Special Notice. 

On and after above-named days, ashes, etc., in order to be removed 
by city carts, must be placed in receptacles not larger than an ordinary 
flour barrel, and in a position on a level with the grade of the adjoining 
sidewalk. 

Vault filth, offal, bricks and mortar, gravel and earth, garden rakings 
and shrubbery are not included in the above, and will not be removed 
by the city if placed in the streets. 

During the year the wheelwright, blacksmith, paint, harness and 
horseshoeing shops of this division at the South Yard were con- 
tinued with competent mechanics upon the same basis as any 
journeyman shop in the city; the repairs and some constructive work 
of this and other divisions has been done cheaply and well. A 
statement of the work performed will be found on pages 225 to 236.

Kemoval 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 330 men and 145 city carts, 
also by five carts with an East Boston contractor, seven carts with 
Dorchester contractors, and two carts with a West Koxbury con- 
tractor. 

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 :

1 Previous to the year 1897, each load of ashes contained ahout 44 cubic feet. During 
the year 1897 all the ash-carts owned by the city wei'e equipped with side-boards, 
increasing their capacity to 54 cubic feet, but for the purpose of comparison the old 
basis has been used.

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 361 
men and 159 carts. This material is removed from hotels, tenement 
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 position. 
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, 26 per cent, was disposed of in this man- 
ner, viz., carried to sea. 

There are four sections of the city let out by contract for the collec- 
tion of house dirt and ashes. Dorchester contracts — South is held 
by Denis Flynn, and North Dorchester by John McShane; East 
Boston, by W. F. Hedrington, and a part of West Boxbury by John 
J. Moore. 

The entire city proper, including Boxbury and a part of West 
Boxbury, together with South Boston, Charlestown and Brighton, 
are now done by day labor. 



House Offal. 

There are employed in the removal of house offal 205 men and 92 
wagons. The offal is removed from dwelling-houses twice a week 
during the summer months, and once a week during the winter; 
from hotels, markets and restaurants it is removed daily. The men 
are required to enter yards, collect the offal, empty into wagons 
and deliver at the depots, located as follows: One on Albany street, 
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 re- 
mainder is dumped on the scows and carried to sea. About 24 per 
cent, of the quantity collected during the past year has been dis- 
posed of in this manner. The Dorchester, Brighton, East Boston 
and West Boxbury contractors dispose of offal at present in the 
same manner as the city itself, by sale to farmers. 



Street Department — Sanitary Division. 225 

At present there are four sections of the city let out by contract 
for the collection of house offal: East Boston, by T. Mulligan; 
Dorchester District, by John Bradley; 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: 

1893 $20,790 03 

1894 26,262 40 

1895 27,374 47

Division Repair Shops. 

Located at the South End yards, situated at No. 650 Albany street. 
At these shops all of the repairs on carriages, carts, wagons, etc., 
are made, together with the painting of the same; all harnesses are 
repaired and many made, and a portion of the horseshoeing done. 

The mechanics 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 the horseshoeing is done for the several 
divisions. 

Wheelwright Shop. 

Cost to maintain during the past year the sum of $9,471.19, of 
which amount $3,524.40 was expended for labor, and $5,946.79 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 the above 
amount expended in maintaining these shops, the following amounts 
were charged off to the several divisions, and others, for repairing, 
altering and putting in good condition their carts, wagons, watering-

Street Department — Sanitary Division. 241 

Plant and Property in Charge of the Sanitary Division. 
South City Stables, Shops and Sheds. 

Situated on Albany street, opposite Newton street. The lot 
belonged to the city before being used for this purpose, and con- 
tains 90,780 feet. 

The stable and buildings connected therewith are of brick. There 
are also on the premises five wooden sheds, used for storing wagons, 
etc. The stable is two stories high, with French roof, and has 
accommodations for 100 horses. Twenty-three horses are kept in 
sheds. Total original cost, exclusive of land, $79,089.23. 

Connected with stables are blacksmith, wheelwright, paint and 
harness-makers' shops, in which the wagons, carts, harnesses, etc., 
used by the department are constructed and kept in repair; also a 
horseshoeing shop for shoeing the horses of the department located 
in this section of the city. 

Offal Depots. 

Erected in 1864, on the wharf fronting on Albany street, opposite 
Brookline street, on the other side of the dock from that used 
by the Paving Division. The lot which the building occupies and 
the yard attached to the same contains 39,511 feet, and belonged to 
the city before being used for this purpose. Total original cost 
of building $18,578.89. This building is used for the deposit 
of house-offal daily collected in the city carts, and from which it is 
thence conveyed without the city limits by purchasers. 

West Stable and Sheds. 

The stable is a brick building, a story and a half high, 128 feet by 
50, located on North Grove street, built in 1860, with suitable out- 
buildings attached to the same. It has accommodations for 83 
horses, in stables and sheds. The lot contains about 45,152 square 
feet. On May 11, 1896, a horseshoeing shop was established for 
the purpose of shoeing the horses of the department stabled in this 
section of the city. 

Highland Stable. 

With accommodations for 72 horses, on the old Almshouse lot, 
Highland street, containing 81,082 square feet. A part of this 
stable and adjoining lot is used by the Paving Division. There 
is on this lot a brick stable, which cost $88,594.13. On this lot is 
an offal-shed, erected in 1875, at a cost of $1,160.12. 

During the year the stabling of horses in the basement of this 
building was abandoned and 15 stalls were placed in the second story 
of the building at a cost of $3,000. April 1, 1897, the offal- 
shed erected in 1875 was abandoned, and renovated for the purpose 
of storing wagons and carts. 

Charlestown Stable. 

With accommodations for 25 horses, is situated on Eutherford 
avenue; lot contains 17,300 square feet of land; stable built in 1875, 
cost $5,083.07; sheds and out-buildings built in 1879.

Fort Hill Wharf. 

Containing 21,054 square feet, placed in charge of the Sanitary 
Division, used as a dumping station for the city's garbage and 
refuse, and as a landing place for scows, which convey this stuff to 
sea. There are two dumping-boats, known as the Barney dumping- 
scows, and these are in continual use for the above purpose, and 
are towed to sea by the Street Department steam tug boat 
" Cormorant." The tug boat is also used by the Sewer Division. 

A portion of this wharf is used by the Street Cleaning Division as 
a locker for push patrol-carts, etc. ; a part is in charge of the Paving 
Division, and a portion occupied by a tenant. 

Gibson Street Plant. 
Containing 42,000 square feet, and situated in Dorchester district, 
which has been used and occupied by the New England Construc- 
tion Company for the treatment and disposition of offal, and which 
is now closed. 

On September 3, 1897, the Street Cleaning Division commenced 
to feed and care for the horses belonging to that Division, and 
stabled at 650 Albany street and North Grove street. 

The Sanitary Division still cares for the horses of this Division 
located at Rutherford avenue and Highland street, bearing a pro- 
portionate share of the cost of maintaining both of these stables. 

All of the stables and sheds under the charge of this Division 
need thorough repairs, no extensive repairs having been made for 
years, and a special appropriation for this purpose should be granted 
by the City Council.

A general statement of the work done during 1897, and work 
necessary to be done, is given in the succeeding pages : 

South Boston. 

During the past year B and Seventh-streets overflow, the sewer 
in Dorchester avenue, between B and D streets, and the sewer in 
Dorr street have been completed. 

The sewers in the following streets should be attended to 
in the immediate future : 

B street, between Dorchester avenue and Fourth street, Dor- 
chester avenue, between D and Dorchester streets, D street, 
between Dorchester avenue and Eighth street and Dexter and 
Ellery streets. The Mercer-street sewer should be enlarged, and 
a beginning made on the Kemp-street outlet, and as much of this 
as lies in the proposed location of Columbia road will have to be 
built immediately. 

Sewers in the following streets should receive attention during 
the coming year : 

From D. street to B street, Silver street from B to Dorchester 
streets, Bolton street from B to Dorchester streets. Although 
there are many others in poor condition which should be rebuilt, 
those above mentioned are the most troublesome. 



Charlestown and East Boston. 

The work on the connections with the North Metropolitan 
sewer in Charlestown and East Boston should be continued and 
completed during this coming year. 

The building of a new outlet of ample dimensions to relieve 
the territory in the vicinity of Tibbetts town way, the rebuild- 
ing of the Beach-street outlet and sewer in Cambridge street 
(which should be done previous to the raising of the grade of 
Cambridge street) and the rebuilding of the Rutherford-avenue 
sewer will constitute the work in Charlestown. 

In East Boston the rebuilding of the Porter street and Putnam 
street outlets should be attended to this year. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 245 

During the past year the following connections with the Metro- 
politan sewer have been made in Charlestown : 

Chelsea street at Vine street, Chelsea street at Meclforcl street, 
Rutherford avenue near Miller street ; the Rutherford- avenue 
sewer from outlet near Miller street to Chapman street has been 
rebuilt to proper size, replacing an old broken-down sewer. 

The connections which have been made during the past year 
in East Boston are : Marginal street at Ruth street, Marginal 
street at Cottage street, Porter street at Bremen street, Border 
street at Eutaw street, Border street at Lexington street, Border 
street near Decatur street, Sumner street at New street, Cottage 
street at Maverick street, Lamson street at Maverick street, 
Jeffries street at Maverick street, Sumner street at Jeffries 
street. 

Brighton. 

The sewer for Cambridge street, between Seattle and North 
Harvard streets, has been built, and the remainder, between Seattle 
street and the Charles river, started. This sewer will be com- 
pleted early in the coming year. Sewers have also been built in 
Strathmore road, Sidlaw road, between Commonwealth avenue 
and Chiswick road, Chiswick road, between Sidlaw road and 
Chestnut Hill avenue, Washington street, between Nantasket 
avenue and Commonwealth avenue. Commonwealth-avenue 
outlet, between Lake street and Commonwealth avenue, was 
finished this year. One of the most important undertakings in 
Brighton this coming year will be the sewering of the Aberdeen 
district, which should be sewered on the separate system ; both 
house sewers and surface drains being built at the same time, 
inasmuch as the house sewer will have to find an outlet through 
the Brookline system, which is, in this neighborhood, a strictly 
separate system. 

West Roxbury. 

In the Mt. Hope district 8,113 linear feet of pipe sewers on the 
separate system have been built. During the coming year the 
system should be completed by the building of the surface drains 
and improvement of the brick channels which traverse this dis- 
trict. The Perkins-street sewer, between Jamaicaway and Centre 
street, has been completed. 

In the neighborhood of West Roxbury and Spring-street sta- 
tions and the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad there 
are large areas which have for a long time been partially developed. 
It is probable that during the coming year a large amount of sewer 
building will be clone in this part of West Roxbury, owing to the 
completion of the Neponset-valley Metropolitan sewer through 
this territory. These sewers will be on a strictly separate system, 
and will require long outlets, varying from 2,500 feet to 7,000 
feet in length. 

This work should be undertaken and carried on as rapidly as 
possible, as the cesspools from the houses now drain in the neigh- 
borhood of the Brookline pumping-station. 



246 City Document No. 34. 

The proposed abolition of grade crossings at Roslindale and 
Spring-street stations will necessitate some changes in the surface- 
drainage system at these points, and at the former point will 
allow proper development of the sewer system for the Hewlett- 
street district, which has been held back on account of these 
proposed changes. 

Dorchester. 

In the Forest- avenue and Lauri at- avenue districts the following- 
streets and parts of streets have been sewered : 

Evans street, the southerly end of Nelson street, the southerly 
end of Fuller street, Fairmount street, and parts of Capen, Selden 
and Morton streets, Lauriat avenue, Chapman avenue, Birch 
street, Oak terrace, Mountain avenue,. Dumas street, Mascot 
avenue, Willowwood street, a part of Ballou avenue, Rosseter 
street and outlets. 

The following streets remain to be sewered, and should be 
attended to the coming year : 

Corbet street, Hopkins and Dyer streets, the southerly ends of 
Selden and Fuller streets, the northerly end of Nelson street, 
Norfolk and Maxwell streets, the remainder of Morton street, 
West Selden street, Carlos and Don streets, part of Lauriat 
avenue near the railroad station, Lauriat street, Tucker street, 
Lyons street, Jones avenue, Middleton avenue, remainder of 
Ballou avenue and Morton street, and a part of Norfolk street. 

In the Dorchester Lower Mills village the following streets are 
well settled, and should be provided with sewers : 

Monson street, River street, part of Temple and Morton 
streets, part of Dorchester avenue, Bellows place, Idaho street, 
Avondale place, part of Codman street and Cedar street. 

In the neighborhood of Talbot avenue the following streets 
remain to be sewered : 

Bernard street, Spencer street, Millet street, Clarence place, 
Melbourne street, Wrentharn park, Torrey street, Waterlow 
street, Peverell street and Hewins street. 

In the northern part of Dorchester, work on the Columbia-road 
boulevard will be pushed to completion. A new sewer system 
will be constructed for the northern half of Savin Hill, including 
the portion of Savin Hill avenue between the railroad and 
Grampian way. 

The Rosemont and Mill streets main sewer will be carried on 
in connection with the building of the covered channel for the 
southern branch of Tenean brook. 

ROXBURY. 

About 2,100 feet of the West Roxbury low-level sewer has 
been built this year, and the sewer system on Columbus avenue, 
between the Roxbury crossing and Dimock street, is in progress, 
and will be completed at an early date. The Dorchester-brook 
sewer has been extended from Norfolk avenue to Clifton street.

Iu all probability no further construction will be necessary on 
this sewer for a number of years. 

The long-needed rebuilding of Harrison avenue main sewer 
has been nearly completed this year, and the building of this 
sewer will enable the city to rectify the sewer system of the adja- 
cent territory. Sewer systems have been built in Peterborough 
street and in Parker, Turner and Norway streets. 

The coming year the sewer in Hemenway street, formerly 
Parker street, will have to be rebuilt between Norway street and 
the passageway south of Boylston street. This is a continua- 
tion of the work of last year, when this sewer was rebuilt 
from Westland avenue to Norway street. The building of this 
sewer will enable the city to rebuild the pipe-sewer in the before- 
mentioned passageway, which has been a source of endless 
trouble and annoyance. The sewer system of the proposed 
Ipswich street will be completed the coming year, and at its 
southerly end a connection will be made with the brick sewer in 
Boylston street, between Hemenway street and the Parkway. 
This latter sewer has settled so badly that a portion of it pitches 
the. wrong way ; but by making the proposed connection it will be 
drained out by the Ipswich-street sewer, and will not have to be 
rebuilt. 

It is hoped that the division will be able to build the house- 
sewers, recommended in several previous reports, on the sides of 
the old Stony-brook channel, between Huntington avenue and 
Elmwood street, in connection with the rebuilding of this old 
channel. 

The Muddy-river conduit in Brookline avenue should, be 
repaired, and a considerable portion of it rebuilt. This will be 
a very expensive work. A surface-drain should be built in Heath 
street, between Huntington avenue and Lawn street. 

When the Huntington-avenue boulevard was completed, this 
surface-drain was started and carried to the line of the avenue. 
It should be completed the coming year, as the Heath-street sewer 
is entirely inadequate to take the floods of surface-water which 
come down this street. 

The sewer system in the new avenue called South Huntington 
avenue has been built on the separate system, in anticipation of 
the building of this surface-drain in Heath street, and the catch- 
basin drain on the new avenue has been connected temporarily 
with the sewer in Heath street, which, of course, increases the 
flood of water in the latter sewer. 

The relief-sewer for the Notre Dame-street district will be com- 
pleted the coming year. This sewer was carried up as far as the 
line of Columbus avenue at the relocation of Dimock street, and 
left there for the purpose of further extension when Columbus 
avenue was built. 

This sewer will, when completed, relieve -the Notre Dame- 
street district, which has suffered for many years from floods of 
surface-water. The sewer in Haskins and Benton streets will be 



248 City Document No. 34. 

rebuilt, and the overflow or surface-drain for the Vila-street dis- 
trict should be built, if arrangements can be made with the 
Park Department for the locatiou of the same, and also for 
paying a portion of the expense of building. 

City Proper. 

The Canal-street relief sewer was begun last year in Central 
street and has been carried on through India and Commercial 
streets, and part way through Clinton street. This will be 
carried on the coming year, and probably completed to the con- 
nection with the Canal-street sewer, near Causeway street. 

The route of this sewer, which was projected through Clinton 
and Blackstone streets and Haymarket square, has been changed 
on account of the fact that the Rapid Transit Commission have 
determined to build a subway in Hanover street. The grade of 
this subway will be so low that it will be necessary to build a 
siphon on the Canal-street relief sewer if it crosses Hanover 
street at Blackstone street. 

The route has therefore been changed, and this sewer will be 
carried from Clinton street, through Fulton and Cross streets to 
Haymarket square, for the reason that at the point where Cross 
street crosses Hanover street the proposed grade of the subway 
is high enough to allow the sewer to be carried under it without 
siphoning. 

Sewers have been built in Atlantic avenue, thus removing the 
pollution from the Mercantile "Wharf and adjacent docks ; in 
Charles and Allen streets, relieving the condition of the sewer 
system in Brighton and Allen streets, and in South Market street 
and many other small streets. 

The Rapid Transit Commission, in connection with other work, 
have rebuilt sewers in Adams square, Beacon and School streets, 
Cornhill, Hanover street, Tremont street and Tremont row and 
Washington street. 

The building of the South Union Station has resulted in a 
general remodelling of the sewer system in this part of the city. 
The sewers in Beach, East, Essex and Summer streets have been 
combined and a new outlet sewer built in Summer-street exten- 
sion. 

. About 700 feet of the interceptor in Cove street has been re- 
built and carried around the head house of the station, and a 
very large sewer built from Cove street across the Terminal 
Company's land, a short distance north of Mt. Washington 
avenue, which is designed to take the sewage of Kneeland and 
Harvard streets districts. On account of the low grade at which 
the railroad subway is designed across Mt. Washington avenue, 
this sewer had to be very much depressed. The crown of the 
sewer being at Grade 3, and as there was not sufficient weight 
of material over the sewer to resist tidal pressure, a particular 
form of construction was adopted, the arch of the sewer

being held clown by bent rails which are carried over the sewer 
and bolted down on each side of the sewer to the pile caps 
underneath. 

Future Work in this District. 

The most important work which is contemplated for the coming 
year in the city proper, is the completion of the terminal sewers 
before mentioned, and continuing the large sewer under the rail- 
road yard up Kneeland and South streets from the interceptor to 
Harvard-street sewer. 

A district regulator will also be built on the interceptor near 
Summer street, and a regulator in Kneeland street, near Cove 
street, connecting with the interceptor by a small brick sewer in 
Kneeland street. At the request of the Terminal . Company a 
portion of the intercepting sewer near the location of the gas- 
holders at Federal- street bridge will be rebuilt, in order to enable 
the city to abandon the portion of the existing interceptor which 
crosses under the proposed location of the Terminal Company's 
subway at this point. The house sewer will be built in the new 
Dorchester avenue between Summer street and Mt. Washington 
avenue. In other parts of the city the North Market-street 
sewer and the sewers in India, Milk and adjoining streets are in 
bad condition and should be rebuilt. 

In Commercial street, near Clark street, the sewer system is old 
and excessively leaky, and must be remodelled and probably 
entirely rebuilt, as the tide rises and falls freely in these sewers at 
the present time. 

The Legal Grade of Cellars. 

This subject has been discussed in the report of 1896, but 
attention should be called to it again on account of its importance. 
The present legal grade, according to the building law, is 
Grade 12. 

This is evidently founded on the assumption that the ordinary 
run of high tides is, on the average, up to Grade 10. While 
this is true there are very many tides which go above this 
point, and even up to Grade 14. It is not at all uncommon for 
the tide to reach Grade 1 2 at the same time that a rain storm is 
in progress. This of course is hard to overcome in designing- 
sewers. 

A sewer should be, if possible, of such a size that it will 
carry off the storm water without allowing the level of the water 
to get above that of the cellars. This is a theoretical impossi- 
bility whenever the tide reaches Grade 12. 

The only device which could be adopted to help matters under 
these circumstances, is to build the sewer much larger than would 
be needed simply to convey the storm water, so that it will take 
a little while to fill up this extra space. In other words the 
sewers must provide a storage space. 



250 City Document No. 34. 

This requirement results in a large increase in the cost of all 
sewers in tidal districts. The legal grade should be raised to 
Grade 14. 

There is another aspect to this problem of the legal grade of 
cellars and that is, that, as at present established, this grade 
bears no relation to the grade of the street in which the sewer 
lies. It really only applies in tidal districts, for it would be 
absurd to suppose that it was intended to allow cellars on high 
land, perhaps 50 or 100 feet above tide water, to be carried down 
to Grade 12, and to impose any obligations upon the city to 
drain cellars to such unusual depth. 

In addition to changing the legal grade from 12 to 14, the 
ordinance should be amended so as to establish a relation between 
the grade of the street in which the sewer lies and the allowable 
depth of cellars. This would be best founded upon custom, and 
probably the depth of 8 feet below the grade of the street 
would cover all ordinary cases. If such a grade were established 
then a builder, who chose to put in a cellar of unusual depth, 
would understand that he could not expect to find the sewer sys- 
tem low enough to drain him by gravity, and that he must pro- 
vide means for raising his sewage by some form of pumping. 

Control of House Connection. 

As the law stands at present this division supervises only the 
connection of private drains with the sewer, and has no control 
over the laying of the drain from the sewer to the house. The 
drain-layer may or may not make good work of this portion. 

This makes a difference to this division in many cases where 
the work is in wet ground, as it allows a large amount of leakage 
from ground water to find its way into the sewer system. If a 
drain is improperly laid it also results in trouble to this division, 
because when a drain becomes stopped up a complaint almost 
invariably is made that the public sewer in the street is stopped 
up and the owner of the house refuses to go to any expense on 
his private drain until the fact is demonstrated to him that the 
public sewer is in good condition. 

This division should either build all private connections by day 
labor, or should have supervision over them from the sewer to 
the point where the Superintendent of Plumbing, under the build- 
ing law, assumes control. 

In this connection it should be noted that the inspectors of this 
division should have the right to enter buildings in order to find 
out from what houses matter deleterious to the sewers is being 
emptied, and to make tests, etc. These inspectors, together with 
the engineers, who have to enter many buildings to get the grades 
of sewers, should be furnished with badges, in order to assure the 
occupants of the buildings that they are properly authorized 
agents of the city of Boston.

Main Drainage. 

In connection with the main drainage works, contracts have 
been entered into for the enlarging of the sewage storage reser- 
voirs at Moon Island, the capacity of the old ones having been 
fully reached. A considerable improvement has been brought 
about at the pumping-station at the Cow Pasture, contracts having 
been let for the thorough overhauling of the present machinery, 
and also a contract made with Mr. E. D. Leavitt to design the 
new 72,000,000 gallons sewage pump; and the coming year will 
bring about changes of great value in the main drainage system. 

Stony Brook. 

The construction of that portion of Stony-brook channel lying 
between the gate-house on Pynchon street and the channel built 
by the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad, near 
Centre street, has been continued and nearly completed.

Financial Statement. 

Sewer assessments have been made by this division for the 
year ending January 31, 1898, in accordance with chapter 402 of 
the Acts of 1892, and amendments thereto, to the amount of 
$39,534.95, and the bills have been deposited for collection with 
the City Collector. 

Bills for sewer assessments amounting to $2,738.40 have also 
been deposited for collection, representing those estates assessed 
under chapter 456 of the Acts of 1889, and amendments thereto, 
which have been connected with the public sewers during the 
year ; making the total amount of assessments deposited for col- 
lection, $42,273.35. 

There remain on the books of .this division, at 5 per cent, in- 
terest, $25,308.24, representing the assessments under the Acts 
of 1889, and amendments thereto, for those estates which have 
not been connected with the sewer for which they were assessed, 
and bills for which will be deposited for collection as the connec- 
tions are made. This sum represents 19.5 per cent, of the 
total assessments made under those acts. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $3,338.24 have been collected 
from estates upon which no sewer assessment was ever paid, in 
accordance with chapter 36, section 10, of the Revised Ordi- 
nances. 

Permits have been issued to licensed drain-layers to make 4,194 
connections with the public sewers, and the work done under these 
permits has been inspected, and a record of the 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 :

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF THE 
STREET-CLEANING DIVISION. 



923 Tremont Building, Boston, February 1, 1898. 
Mr. Benjamin W. Wells, Sxiperintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir : I have the honor to submit herewith the annual 
report of the Street-Cleaning Division of the Street Department 
for the year ending January 31, 1898. 

The following table will show that never in the history of the 
Street-Cleaning Division have the streets of Boston been cleaned 
at a more economical figure than during the past year, despite 
the growth of the city, and the added burdens on the division :

Character of tpie City Pavement. 

Macadam, in a much-travelled street, costs in the matter of 
cleaning, out of all proportion to its merits as a road surface. 

Asphalt, which may not have other merits as a street surface, 
affords the street-cleaner his best opportunities. Granite block 
pavement occupies perhaps an intermediate place from a street- 
cleaner's point of view, but the modern block pavement, with 
the joints filled with pitch and pebble, is most satisfactory in 
point of cleanliness, as has been clearly demonstrated in the city 
proper; since its adoption in 1891 in the business district, where 
the most debris accumulates, and where the work is done every 
night, the cost per mile is the lowest in the city. 



140 City Document No. 34. 



Advantages of the Modern Pavement. 

One somewhat obvious reason for this lies in the evenness of 
the surface on the modern pavement, a prime factor in any at- 
tempt to clean the street. Another reason not so obvious, is — 
I am convinced — the lessened forcing up between the interstices 
of the pavement of dirt from below. This would not seem to 
be a serious matter, till one tried to keep the surface clean, and 
then a constant supply of soil would be found by the sweeper, 
which can come from no other source. Excessive dust in street- 
sweeping is a serious matter to storekeepers, and is doubtless 
important from a sanitary point of view, while watering the 
street brings about conditions that are found when the weather 
is wet. These observations are offered, as showing how small 
and special considerations will materially affect the cost of the 
work. 

Dumping Facilities. 

A more serious question, from an administrative point of view, 
and one peculiar to Boston, is the lack of dumping facilities. 
We have only one dumping-wharf at our disposal, and few other 
means of disposing of sweepings. 

It is clearly a waste of effort in a city like Boston, with a lai'ge 
water front, to haul street-sweepings a mile to the dumping- 
ground. The remedy is not, perhaps, simple, but the addition 
to our present facilities of one dumping- wharf at the North End 
would materially improve our position. This change is made all 
the more necessary at the present time, from the early probability 
of losing the Cambridge lowlands as a dumping-ground, where 
the sweepings from the West and North Ends are now taken. 

Street-Sweeping Methods. 

The sweeping-machines, that have figured so long as a part of 
the city's street-cleaning outfit, do a certain kind of work on 
certain kinds of street surfaces very well, but the most efficient 
street-cleaning under all conditions is beyond them. The ma- 
chines sweep an uneven pavement very imperfectly, and are well 
nigh useless in dealing with mud. A minor grievance, controlled 
to a great extent by the watering cart, is the cloud of dust 
raised by the machines. Dampening the streets does not over- 
come this trouble entirely, and in the summer, where upper win- 
dows of buildings or dwellings may be open, deposits of dust 
are serious matters to the merchant and housekeeper, even where 
the dust can only find ingress to buildings through the open 
spaces of doors and windows. The best results are practically 
certain with hand-sweeping, and, with the growing demand of 
the public for clean streets, and the modern insistence on cleanli- 
ness as a sanitary measure, hand-sweeping must come in time. 
My experience with hand-sweeping — and we have already a 
great deal of it in connection with the push-cart patrol system — 



Street Department — Street Cleaning Division. 341 

confirms me in the belief that it raises less dust and is more 
thorough. A great advantage in hand-sweeping, which must 
be necessarily done by assigning sweepers to particular sections 
of the street is, that a man is on the ground all day, and serves 
many of the purposes of a street-cleaning patrol. 

The block system, as it is called, or that of assigning one man 
to a certain area of a street or streets, has been found to work 
the best. The man is directly responsible for the condition of 
the block, acquires a familiarity with the ground and the best 
means of doing the work, adapting himself to the local condi- 
tions ; and generally the block system operates to bring the 
streets under a more minute and constant treatment. I am still 
of the belief, as expressed in previous reports, that a better dis- 
cipline and morale of the force would be secured by uniforming 
the push-cart sweepers. 

The clean streets found in European cities are due to the labor 
of many more persons than are ever seen in this country engaged 
in this work. Men, women and even children are hired, often at 
very small wages, and then the expense is much greater than 
the average American is ready to pay for sweeping the 
streets. American public opinion would not tolerate much that 
is a considerable factor in European street cleaning — as, for 
example, the employment of women and children — but is demand- 
ing a higher scale of street cleanliness each succeeding year and 
will unquestionably become reconciled to the expense of the best 
work. It is intended to make whatever changes are made in the 
methods of the division, in line with the above observations, so 
far as will be permitted by the exigencies of the work and the 
appropriation. 

Some Uncalled-for Work. 

A matter that appears to me worthy of careful consideration is 
that of taking away from this division the clearing of sidewalks 
of snow around public grounds and public buildings. This latter 
work, especially, comes at a time when the resources of the divi- 
sion are strained to the utmost in attending to the imperative 
needs of traffic in the removal of snow. It is not street clean- 
ing, nor calls necessarily for a class of labor that might be sup- 
posed to constitute the staff of a street-cleaning department. 

City Ordinances. 

Respecting litter on the streets, the city ordinances embody 
complete and adequate legislation on the subject, but their enforce- 
ment has been so lax that no good results have been attained. 
It would not, perhaps, be fair to say there was no improvement 
in the public carefulness about littering the streets. There is a 
slow movement for the better, evident in the statistics of the 
department, but public sentiment does not appear to countenance 
prosecutions on a severe scale as yet, and until they do, the 
department and the police will have doubtless to wait. Most of 



342 



City Document No. 34. 



the fine street-cleaning in European cities is due to the rigid 
enforcement of ordinances, no more exacting than the code 
obtaining in this city, and public opinion there, having seen the 
advantages of a clean street, sustains the public prosecutor in 
his work. 

I would not feel that this report was complete without express- 
ing my appreciation of the faithfulness of the foremen, sub- 
foremen and workmen who have ably and willingly seconded my 
efforts in the department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joshua Atwood, 3d, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX G. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE STREET WATERING DIVISION. 



440 and 441 Tbemont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1898. 

Mr. Benj. W. Wells, Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir : I herewith respectfully submit the annual report of 
the expenditures, income and operations of the Street Watering- 
Division for the financial year ending January 31, 1898. 

The open character of our winters was made disagreeably mani- 
fest during the past season. In January the dust became so 
unbearable for a time that on January 15 and 16 an effort was 
made to use the watering carts, but had to be discontinued, owing 
to the low temperature. There does not appear to be any way of 
overcoming the dust nuisance during cold, open weather, and 
attention is called to the matter for the purpose of assuring our 
citizens that the division appreciates this grievance ; that it has 
tried to give relief, but experiments have resulted in worse con- 
ditions, — danger to horse travel. 

The season was noted for unusual fall weather. In 1896 the 
carts were employed seventeen days during September and 
October, while in 1897, during these months, they worked thirty- 
five days. The slight increase in expense over the previous year 
is clue to the dry weather in these two months. 

The amount of work done, and the character of the service 
rendered were about the same as in 1896. The smallness of the 
appropriation prevented the increase in the force of carts as urged 
in the last report, but during the warm weather two carts were 
added in West Roxbury, one cart in Roxbury, and one cart in 
the Back Bay in answer to the imperative needs of those sections. 

In our last report attention was directed to the gradual sub- 
stitution of salt water for fresh water, and the matter urges 
itself again because of the fact that we were obliged to pay for the 
water used last year and the year before. As salt-water mains 
are about to be constructed for fire purposes I would strongly 
advise that some consideration be given to the iruse for street- 
watering purposes. The cost of water for 1896 was $85,200 and 
for 1897, $41,730.40, making a total of $76,930.40. A propor- 
tion of this expense could be saved by the use of salt water. 

With your approval a letter containing the following questions 
was sent to the mayors of the fifty largest cities of this country 



350 City Document No. 34. 

with a view of securing information of the methods pursued in 
other cities, and for the benefit derived from a comparison with 
the work accomplished by. this division : 

" 1 . How is the cost of street-watering borne in your city — 
by assessment on the estates benefited, or from the general tax 
levy? If by assessment, is the service compulsory upon the 
abutter ? 

"2. How is your work done? Do you hire the carts and do 
the watering under the supervision of the city, or is it done by 
contract ? 

" 3. How much, if any, street-watering is done by the street 
railway companies free of cost to the city? If the street railway 
companies do not operate electric watering cars, do they con- 
tribute anything to the expense of watering on streets through 
which they run their cars? " 

In many of the cities heard from very little is attempted in 
the line of street- watering, and the voluntary subscription 
method, similar to the manner in which our paved streets have 
been watered, obtains in a great number of them, but it is 
generally unsatisfactory. Some are doing the watering by the 
assessment plan, and in a number the street railway companies 
are obliged to contribute to the expense of watering or render 
some actual watering service. 

No city in the country does as much street-watering as the city 
of Boston, and there is every reason, from comparison, for satis- 
faction at the results the division has accomplished in this line of 
the public service. 

In my last annual report I recommended that the division 
undertake the watering of paved streets, and I wish to again 
press the matter. This service can be rendered better by the city 
than under the present arrangements of the subscription method. 

I wish also to request that the effort to have the Boston 
Elevated Railway Company contribute something to the watering 
of its tracks be continued. 

The following sums have been expended for street-watering 
during the past seven (7) years : 

$76,424 70 
71,211 81 
78,736 72 



Note. — During the year 1897 the sum of $76,930.40 was expended for the water used 
in 1896 and 1897. This expense was not paid in previous years, and for the purpose of 
comparison it has been omitted from the expenditures of 1897 given above. 

The income during the last year was 1482.10. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Thomas J. Finneran, 
Deputy Superintendent Street Watering Division.

Street Department — Street Watering Division. 353 

The above summary shows that 116 carts watered 306.13 
miles of macadam streets this year. This is an increase of four 
in the number of carts, and an increase of about three-quarters 
of a mile in streets watered. The cost of this watering, exclusive 
of supervision and water, was $62,791.75 against $56,333.25 the 
year previous. The additional expense is attributable to the un- 
usual weather conditions of the fall months referred to in the 
beginning of the report. 

The surface watered will be materially increased during the 
coming season by the acquisition of Blue Hill, Huntington and 
Commonwealth-avenue boulevards, which are now complete for 
travel.

The above table shows the work done by contractors for the 
abutters on what is called the subscription plan. The work is 
exactly the same as the amount rendered the year previous. 
Whether the watering is done rests with the abutter, and it can 
be readily appreciated that many elect to go without water when 
it is understood that there are 93.17 miles of streets, paved in 
one way or another, and but 36.21 miles of them are watered. 
The fact that the city takes care of the macadam streets may 
have been the reason why many declined to provide for the 
watering of the paved streets on which thej^ happened to live ; 
but it is certain that the subscription plan is unsatisfactory for 
the greater reason that some abutters have paid for the ser- 
vice, while their neighbors, declining, have had a benefit at 
their expense. The experience of other cities is in the same 
direction.

APPENDIX H. 



City of Boston, Engineering- Department, 

50 City Hall, January 30, 1898. 

Mr. Benjamin W. Wells, Superintendent of Streets: 

Sir : I herewith submit the following report of the work 
clone under my direction for the Street Department during the 
year 1897: 

The work done for the Street Department covers the same 
ground as in previous years, namely, the supervision of the con- 
struction of assessment streets, boulevards and street paving. 

The repairs on the asphalt pavements upon which the mainte- 
nance guaranty has expired have been supervised in accordance 
with your directions, and a table is annexed giving repairs and 
cost thereof in detail ; a table has also been prepared showing the 
details of all asphalt pavement in the city and a copy is enclosed. 

On Blue Hill avenue, the work of construction has been com- 
pleted to Walk Hill street ; from that point to Mattapan, the 
construction awaits the decision of the courts as to the method 
of abolishing the grade crossing on the New England Railroad. 

On Columbus-avenue extension, the section from West Walnut 
Park to Ritchie street has been built during the year. The work 
of constructing the new Stony brook channel has delayed the 
completion of the remainder of the street, but it is expected that 
the entire avenue will be completed in 1898. 

On Commonwealth avenue, a certain amount of work was clone 
near Chestnut Hill avenue, late in the season. 

Columbia road was laid out during the year, and work 
promptly commenced upon it. The work done consists of a large 
amount of earth and rock excavation, between Blue Hill avenue 
and the New England Railroad. 

The table showing lengths and areas of paving on accepted 
streets has been brought up to February 1, 1898.

APPENDIX I. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF SMOKE INSPECTOR. 



28 Court Square, Boston, February 1, 1898. 

Benj. W. Wells, Esq., Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir : I herewith submit a report of the work performed 
under chapter 389, Acts of 1895, and section 119, chapter 175, 
Acts of 1897, relating to the Smoke Nuisance in this city. 

Under the law of 1895, a chimney could emit " dark or thick 
gray " smoke for five minutes continuously, or twenty-five per 
cent, of a continuous period of twelve hours before it was de- 
clared a nuisance. There were times at rare intervals when a 
chimney would emit dark or thick gray smoke for five minutes 
continuously, but they were so rare that it was thought that the 
evidence with regard to them would not stand the strain of a 
trial ; and unless the parties complained of felt disposed to make 
changes at some expense there was no remedy other than taking 
the case into court, and very little if anything could be clone. 

Section 119, chapter 175 of the Acts of 1897, provides that 
" the Building Commissioner may from time to time, after public 
notice and hearing, prescribe conditions on which any or all 
boilers may be maintained in buildings, and if any person inter- 
ested objects to such conditions they shall be referred to a board 
of appeal, consisting of the Chairman of the Board of Health, 
Fire Commissioner and the Board of Appeal." 

This gives the Building Commissioner the power to make any 
conditions that are at all fair with regard to the conduct of fur- 
naces burning soft coal, as in some cases the emission of smoke 
for a much shorter period than the law allows is somewhat of a 
nuisance, owing to location, conditions, etc. 

In order to take action under this law it is necessary to have a 
complaint from parties affected ; when a complaint is received 
against an offending stack an observation is taken, and if the 
chimney is emitting smoke to the annoyance of the parties who 
complained, but not enough to violate the law, the attention of 
the owner or parties interested in the plant is called to the com- 
plaint and also to the law, and all complaints so far, some of 



Street Department — Smoke Inspection. 383 

which required time owing to experiments, the department allow- 
ing considerable latitude in that direction, have been settled 
satisfactorily to all parties concerned without bringing the 
complaint before the Building Commissioner. 

Several complaints were also received against house chimneys ; 
these chimneys, while not under the jurisdiction of this office, 
were looked into, and in some cases the suggestions offered were 
carried out, affording considerable relief. 

Section 99, chapter 3, Revised Ordinances, 1892, provides that 
" no person shall use bituminous coal for the purpose of generating 
steam in boilers in any building, unless the furnace in which said 
coal is burned is provided with some effectual device for consum- 
ing its own smoke." 

It was found necessary, if any progress were to be made on 
the smoke question, to enforce the above ordinance on all new 
boilers, which has been done for the past three years. Early in 
August, 1897, the Music Hall Association made application to 
the Building Commissioner to place and maintain a boiler in Music 
Hall, and notice was sent them to the effect that the department 
would object to the granting of the permit unless they complied 
with the above ordinance. At the expiration of ten days, not 
having received any reply, a notice of objection was filed with the 
Building Commissioner, who forwarded the same to the Board of 
Appeal, who later gave a hearing, the Music Hall Association 
and the City of Boston being represented by counsel. The 
decision of the Board of Appeal was to the effect that no permit 
should be issued until the above parties had complied with the 
ordinance. This they have since done. 

As nothing appeared in the application for boiler permits 
touching the matter of the use of bituminous coal, the Corpora- 
tion Counsel, in the latter part of September, drew up a new 
form of application and permit, calling attention in the applica- 
tion to the fact that if bituminous coal was to be used, the 
furnace should be provided with a smoke-consuming device. The 
permit required the device when adopted to be satisfactory to 
this office ; the necessity of this was shown in the fact, that since 
the enforcement of the ordinance relative to the adoption of 
smoke consumers, some persons, with a view of evading the law, 
equipped their boilers with cheap and ineffective devices, which, 
upon investigation, were found to be short lived and worthless. 

There have been times during the past year when the emission 
of smoke from chimneys has been very noticeable, particularly 
the past few months. Plants that had previously never given 
any trouble were reported by the observers, and, upon investiga- 
tion, were found to be using what is known as a low grade of 
bituminous coal, containing a large percentage of volatile matter, 
this coal being considered good for steaming qualities, but 
making very much smoke. To continue the use of this kind of 
fuel left the owners of plants liable to become amenable to the 
law, and when this fact was called to their attention, orders 



384 



City Document No. 34. 



were immediately given by tliem to stop the further use of this 
grade of coal. 

The greater portion of this coal was later traced as coming 
from the coal pockets of the Boston & Maine Railroad at Charles- 
town, which were burned some time ago. This coal was sold by 
the underwriters to a syndicate, who in turn sold it to consumers 
as a high grade coal, at much less than the market price. 

During the past two months a visit was made to some eighty- 
nine boiler plants, the owners of which having at the time the per- 
mit was obtained, agreed to burn anthracite coal. These plants 
are in the main used only during cold weather, and this investi- 
gation was made with a view of determining whether the above 
conditions were being carried out. Fourteen plants were found 
burning bituminous coal, three of which were equipped with 
smoke devices ; the remainder were notified they were violating 
the conditions of their permit, all of whom have since complied 
with the requirements of the department. 

Coal Importations. 

The following table shows the number of tons and value of
