In the past eight years Boston has undergone many and 
great changes, and along lines of broad and progressive 
development ; and the citizens of Boston should fully ap- 
preciate the splendid work of these last few years, and as a 
result the tremendous possibilities for the future of the city. 
This work although costly, has built the foundation for the 
most desirable city for business or residence in this country. 
The foundation was built none too soon ; and what has been 
accomplished, had the work been undertaken a few years later, 
would in part have been impossible, and in every way would 
have been vastly more expensive. 

In these eight years have been brought to a conclusion — 
or are well under way — the abolishing of the railroad grade 
crossings, the building of the subway, the completion of the 
great Southern Terminal Station, the development in part of 
the vast new dock system, the improvement of tjie harbor, 
the building up of the park system, the perfecting of the 



6 City Document No. 35. 

water supply, the beginning of the great new bridge to 
Charlestown, and the extension of the electric car service in 
all parts of the city ; and in addition and in close connection 
with all this development has followed the work of the- 
Street Department. 

In the Street Department the work of the past three years 
has been the greatest in its history in amount and importance. 
In these years have been built the five great boulevards, 
which, branching out in different directions, have brought 
the outlying sections of the city in close touch with the city 
proper over well-built roads, supplied with sewer, water and 
gas, so that great areas of most desirable residential land are 
now available for the rapidly growing city. The increase in 
population in these years has been large, and through the 
development of its own territory this increase has been made 
possible, for the reason that the city has made it attractive 
for its people to stay within its borders. 

In addition to the boulevards a great number of assessable 
streets have been built which greatly add to the value and 
beauty of the outlying wards. In the down-town section 
many of the most important thoroughfares have been repaved 
in the best manner. But fully as important, though, owing 
to its nature, not so much noted by the citizen, has been the 
work of perfecting the Boston sewerage system, so that now 
there is no other city in the country where the sewer system 
is so complete, and the difficulties to be overcome in the fu- 
ture so few. Prior to 1896 no action had been taken looking 
to a general relief from the very pressing need for surface 
drainage in the outlying districts ; the great problem of Stony 
brook was only cared for in part ; the large down-town Canal 
Street Relief Sewer, which served the needs of a large and very 
congested district, and the brokeu-down and bad condition of 
which had been reported on for years, was daily becoming 
worse ; the Main Drainage Works plant, on the efficiency of 
which depended the health and comfort of the entire city, 
and the condition of which daily threatened most serious dan- 
ger to the sewerage system of the city had received no at- 
tention for years ; no connections had been made with the 
North Metropolitan system, although rent was being paid 
therefor by the City of Boston to the State, and the fouling 
of the shores of Charlestown and East Boston had become a 
serious nuisance ; and the capacit}' of the basins at Moon 
Island was greatly overtaxed. All these conditions have 
been corrected, and the sewer problems of the future are now 
of the ordinary nature, which can be well cared for within a 
reasonable appropriation, and little is left undone that appears- 
as a menace to the general health of the community.

In the matter of the removal of offal and other refuse 
the methods of a half a century were still pursued. All this 
has been changed, and the system now in use surpasses in its 
sanitary completeness and general arrangements that of any 
city in this country. 

New methods in the Street-Cleaning Division have accom- 
plished better results than ever before. 

The Ferry Division has been thoroughly equipped with 
new slips and drops, two boats have been built and another 
is under way. 

The only division which has not kept pace — owing to 
lack of appropriations — with the general work of the depart- 
ment and the growth of the city has been the Bridge 
Division. Many of the bridges are old, and should receive 
attention ; but the City Council has not been able or seen fit 
to provide the necessary moneys. 

The whole scheme of street watering has been changed, so 
that now every public street in the city is watered by the 
department, and the cost assessed on the abutters, thus doing 
away with the old haphazard way of doing the work by pri- 
vate subscription, and results have been attained not possi- 
ble under the old svstem.

From the maintenance appropriation of this division there 
was built a new stone crusher in the Brighton District, with 
a capacity of two hundred and twenty-five tons daily, with 
arrangement of bins for the storage of stone, and the whole 
plant is a very complete one. 

In this division excellent results were accomplished as far 
as financial conditions would allow, but owing to the very 
considerable decrease in the moneys appropriated, the work 
was much less than conditions called for. This department 
for the past two years has advocated a general policy of the 
reconstruction and repaving of the down-town streets, so that 
Boston might take its place with other advanced munici- 
palities as well paved and well cleaned. The amount made 
available, however, was only sufficient to do some of the 
more necessary work. 

The average appropriation for new work under the general 
law (not assessable), since the consolidation of the depart- 
ment, which took place in 1891, has been $850,000 per year. 
The appropriation for 1898 was $448,000. 

"Work on the boulevards has made satisfactory progress 
and Columbus avenue is now completed with the exception 
of a short section between Centre and Ritchie streets, where 
one side is left uncompleted, work having been suspended in 
consequence of the cold weather. 

On Blue Hill avenue no work has been done on the final 
ection, owing to the failure to take action of the commis- 



Street Department. 9 

sioners appointed to make arrangements for the abolition of 
the grade crossing of the New England Kailroad. 

On Commonwealth avenne considerable work has been 
done, and the j3resent Legislature, by the passage of chapter 
236 of the Acts of 1898, has authorized the expenditure of a 
sum estimated as sufficient to complete the paving, with the 
added condition that the work be brought to a close before 
the year 1900. The plans of the avenue have been revised, 
and some changes made which, while lessening the cost, will 
be of benefit to the abutting estates and make the avenue 
much more attractive. 

On Columbia road, from Blue Hill avenue to the New 
England Railroad, the road is completed and in use. Work 
has not been commenced upon the railroad bridge. From 
the bridge to Edward Everett square a large amount of work 
has been done. The grading is substantially completed, and 
nearly all the sewers, water-pipes and gas-pipes have been 
laid, and some work has been done on the surfacing. The 
contracts for construction require the work to be completed 
by July 1, 1899 ; and with the exception of the bridge above 
named, the progress already made indicates that it will be 
substantially completed at that time. 

Work is also in progress on the erection of the bridge over 
the Plymouth Division of the New York, New Haven and 
Hartford Railroad, and on the filling of the section of the 
road and parkway between Covington and I streets. Pro- 
posals have been received for completing the grading of the 
section between Mercer and Mt. Vernon streets. Consider- 
able filling has been done during the year on the latter 
section, under several small contracts. 

On Ipswich street, the bridge over the Fens waterway, the 
abutments of the bridge to carry the park driveway over the 
street, a retaining wall along the line of the railroad, and iron 
fences on both sides of the street at the crossing of the Fens, 
have been finished, and a temporary wooden bridge to carry 
the park drive over the street has been erected. 

The most important paving work was the reconstruction 
of Hanover street between Court and Washington streets, 
Howard street, Tremont street from Boylston street to 
Pleasant street, and Commercial street from State street to 
South Market street. These were paved with granite blocks, 
with pitch-joints, on a concrete base. 

Other jobs of considerable size were Bunker Hill street, 
Charlestown, Tremont street, Roxbury, Norfolk avenue and 
Parker street, granite blocks on gravel base. Asphalt was 



10 City Document No. 35. 

laid on portions of Shawmut avenue, Broadway, and Hay- 
ward place. 

South Union Station. 

During the past year the sea-wall on Dorchester avenue 
extension has been completed from Federal street to Summer 
street extension, and the street has been filled in, the tem- 
porary sidewalk built, and the roadway temporarily paved 
with granite blocks excepting a narrow strip adjoining a por- 
tion of the property of the Boston Terminal Company upon 
which the buildings and other structures have not as yet 
been so far completed as to allow the paving to be done. 
The work of widening Federal street bridge to connect it 
with the new street has also been done. 

Summer street extension in front of the new station has 
been paved and the sidewalks built. The square formed by 
the intersection of Summer street and Atlantic avenue has 
been regraded and temporarily paved, the centre of the square- 
having been raised about two and one-half feet. Atlantic 
avenue, between Summer street and Kneeland street, has 
been put in condition so that it can be used. 

Removal of Snow. 

The regular work of the Paving Division has been con- 
siderably handicapped by the drain made upon the mainte- 
nance appropriation owing to the heavy expense of snow 
removal, the amount of snowfall exceeding any in the 
history of the department. 

The loss of life and property caused by storm was so 
excessive and unusual that the story of the year's snow 
work in some detail is herewith given. 

The new year of the department was ushered in by the 
great storm of January 31. Monday afternoon, January 31,. 
the thermometer was stationary at about 32°, and the snow 
on the ground from the storm of January 26 was about six 
inches. In the late afternoon, the Weather Bureau reported 
that it might turn to rain or continue to snow ; but there 
was no intimation given of the severe and unusual storm 
which followed. In the early evening it looked very 
threatening, and, as a matter of precaution, extra teams were 
ordered to report at 7 A.M. in the shopping district, the 
intention being to have that section of the city covered in 
the very early morning. All through the night the storm 
continued to increase, and by 1 A.M. traffic was practically 
suspended. The cars were stalled, the streets blocked by 




STATE STREET SNOW DRIFT. 




ADAMS SQUARE— SNOW. 



Steeet Department. 11 

fallen poles and wires, and from that time on, the snow,. 
which had been wet — at times almost rain — continued. 
By early morning the thermometer had fallen to 20°, and 
continued falling until it reached 5° on the morning of 
February 2. 

At 5.30 on the morning of February 1, the Street Depart 
ment officials made arrangements for the work of the day' 
The department was greatly handicapped, however, from the 
fact that it was impossible to reach more than one or two 
districts by telephone, all overhead wire service being dis- 
abled. It was necessary to communicate with the district 
foremen, owners of teams and others, by messengers. By 
7 o'clock a considerable force of contractors' teams and 
teams of the Paving and Street-Cleaning Divisions were at 
work on the main thoroughfares, and clearing away from 
the fire-houses. By 8 o'clock the Sanitary Division teams 
and men had been reached, and were added to the force of 
workers. As soon as possible, as many Sewer Division men 
as could be notified were ordered to report on snow work, so 
that by afternoon the entire available Street Department 
force and teams, and such additional contractors' teams as 
could be secured, were actively engaged in removing the 
snow. Thus, with the full force of the Paving, Street- 
Cleaning and Sewer Divisions, and a portion of the Sanitary 
men, work was carried on night and day, including Sunday. 

As many men and teams were worked as could be to 
advantage. The number of dumps substantially regulates 
the entire work as only a limited number of teams can be 
used to advantage at each dump ; and the number of men 
profitably engaged in work is in proportion to the number 
of teams. The difficulties of handling snow in Boston are 
increased by the scarcity of dumping-places. In this storm, 
owing to its severity, dumping was allowed on the Common, 
which greatly assisted in the work. In addition to the 
regular dumps, a small dump was. also secured at Long 
Wharf, and at night the Sanitary dumping-wharf at Fort 
Hill was made available. 

In Boston, unlike New York, the department must take 
into account the fact that the larger part of the teaming 
immediately goes on runners as soon as there is a substantial 
snowfall, and it is therefore not permissible to take the snow 
out of the streets entirely. 

The conditions of the storm were a damp, heavy fall of 
snow, amounting to about 15 inches, followed by several 
days of low temperature, the thermometer ranging between 
5° and 20°, thus creating a firm bed of packed snow which 



12 City Document No. 35. 

turned to hard ice. As the temperature rose, this bed 
became full of cradle-holes, and the streets in some parts of 
the city, where the heaviest travel was, were almost impas- 
sable until the department had cleaned them to the paving. 
To do this it was necessary to pick the ice, and so, sub- 
stantially, every business street in the city had first to be 
picked, before the bed of snow-ice could be removed, adding 
greatly to the cost and labor. 

Another factor which made removal of the snow difficult 
and expensive was that, owing to the wet conditions at the 
time of its fall, the snow was banked on the roofs, and, on 
account of its weight, it was found necessary to shovel more 
than the usual number of roofs ; and, as reported by the 
district foreman, who for a great number of years has had 
charge of the down-town district, more snow was thrown into 
the streets from roofs and areas than had ever been the case 
in his experience. This made it necessary, in a great num- 
ber of streets, to do the work three times over. 

The number of street department men employed on snow 
work was substantially as follows : 

Paving Division ....... 1,000 

Sewer Division . . . . . . . 500 

Street-Cleaning Division ...... 600 

Sanitary Division (for a portion of the time) . . 300 

Total 2,400 

The number of hired teams employed in the work ranged 
from 300 to 850. 

The amount charged to snow-work from February 1 to 
February 13, inclusive, was as follows: 

Labor Rolls.

Street Department. ]3 

In addition to the work as above, the department worked 
on snow Friday, February 4, Friday night and Saturday, 
February 5, and on Sunday, February 6, the entire force, 
including the Sanitary teams. The larger portion of the men 
of the Paving and Street-Cleaning Divisions, however, were 
continued on the final cleaning up of the snow until Thurs- 
dajr night, February 17. So to the above should be added, 
as an estimate, $20,000 for the week's labor and teams, mak- 
ing a total cost of 8108,249.40. 

The number of single loads removed, as reported from the 
dumps, is as follows : 

Paving Division 103,915 

Street-Cleaning Division . . . . 19,276 



Total . . . . . . . 123,191 

The United States weather reports show that the snowfall 
amounted to 14.3 inches. The minimum temperature on 
Monday, the day of the storm, was 5°, and the maximum 
32°. On the succeeding day, February 1, the thermometer 
ranged from 32° down to 10° ; and this was followed by 
three days of very low temperature. 

The second great storm of the financial year commenced in 
the evening on November 27, 1898. This storm is referred 
to as " the November blizzard," and the damage to shipping 
and the loss of life at sea was the greatest in the history of 
Boston and Massachusetts Bay. On the evening of Novem- 
ber 26 the steamer " Portland," leaving Boston at 7 o'clock 
was caught, it is supposed, in the gale at some point below 
Cape Ann, and was lost somewhere in the bay, none surviv- 
ing of upwards of 170 passengers and crew. The following 
is the story of this storm : 

Saturday, November 26, was cloudy ; wind north-east r 
velocity 11 miles per hour ; the average temperature was 
29°. Snow commenced falling at 7.37 P.M., wet and heavy. 
During the early morning hours of Sunday, the 27th, the 
wind increased to a hurricane, and by morning there was a 
heavy fall of snow, which in many places was badly drifted, 
and the city streets were almost blocked. Many of the over- 
head wires were broken, and the telephone and other service 
greatly disarranged. On but few lines of the Boston Ele- 
vated Railway Company were the cars running. The Street 
Department commenced work early Sunday morning, but the 
snow continuing, and the wind blowing with great force, it 



14 City Document No. 35. 

was not possible to do much more than open lines of com- 
munication between the most important fire-houses and 
streets that had been made passable by the plows of the 
Boston Elevated. 

At 1.45 P.M., Sunday, the snowfall amounted to twelve 
inches. On Monday, the 28th, with the thermometer at 29°, 
there was a slight additional snowfall of a half an inch, 
Tuesday was clear, and the thermometer registered 33°. 
Wednesday there was a further fall of snow, amounting to 
5.3 inches, making a total snowfall to be cared for of nearly 
18 inches; and the record shows that on Wednesday, Novem- 
ber 30, at 8 P.M., there were sixteen inches of unmelted 
snow on the ground where no work had been done. 

All the force of the department, Paving, Street-Cleaning, 
Sewer and Sanitary divisions, men and horses, were substan- 
tially put on snow work, the Sanitary forces being returned 
to their own work as the streets were opened up so as to 
make it possible for them to get access to the houses. Work 
was continued night and day throughout the week. 

In streets where the travel was heavy the snow cradled 
badly, requiring^he use of picks ; and, in effect, from every 
downtown street the snow had to be carted, the temperature 
at no time through the week rising higher than slightly above 
the freezing point. The hill streets were impassable for two 
days, until the department was able to give them attention. 

The work in the outlying districts was made heavy in 
some places by the tremendous drifts. Fortunately, however, 
the temperature did not at anytime become excessively cold, 
so that by Sunday night a high wind and warm rain assisted 
greatly in bringing the streets back to a normal condition. 

As compared with the snowfall of February 1 of this same 
year, the amount was slightly in excess ; but the weather 
conditions were much more favorable to snow removal, so 
that, while the storm of February, 1898, cost in the neighbor- 
hood of $100,000, the storm of November cost approximately 
$50,000. The cost of snow removal for the financial year 
1898-99 exceeds that of any year in the history of the depart- 
ment. 

The scarcity of dumps has continued a serious obstacle in 
the way of the rapid and low-cost removal of the snow. The 
long hauls to, and the long waits at the dumps make much 
waste and extra labor. 

The following is a statement of the number of days labor, 
number of days teaming, and the number of loads of snow 



Street Department. 15 

Temoved by the Street Department from Sunday, November 
27, to Monday, December 5, 1898, inclusive : 

Number days labor, Paving Division men . . 6,689 

Number days labor, Street-Cleaning Division men . 2,941 

Number days labor, Sewer Division men . , 2,786 

Number days labor, Sanitary Division men . . 279 



Total number days labor .... 12,695 

Number single teams employed .... 3,053 

Number double teams employed .... 2,413 

Number four-horse teams employed . 25 



Total number teams employed . . . 5,491 

Number single loads snow removed . . . 56,695 

In addition to the above, the greater portion of the Paving 
and Street-Cleaning forces were engaged on snow work for 
the following week. 

The large amount of money required for snow work the 
present year emphasizes the recommendation made in the last 
two annual reports of this department that some provision 
be made for caring for snow, outside the maintenance appro- 
priations of the Paving and Street-Cleaning Divisions. The 
maintenance appropriation of the Paving Division should be 
for the maintenance and care of the streets, and such other 
kindred duties as come within its regular province, for two 
reasons : first, that the cost of street maintenance from year 
to year could be compared ; and secondly, that it . might be 
possible, in making up the annual estimate of cost, to have a 
basis on which to figure. 

This year the regular work of the Paving Division has 
been badly crippled the entire year in consequence of the tre- 
mendous inroad made on its maintenance appropriation by 
the storm of February. By careful management, it would 
have been possible, however, to end the year in this division 
almost within the appropriation, had it not been for this 
unusually early fall of snow.'" The snow cost in this one 
year was $172,963. 

It is not fair to those charged with the conduct of the 
work that, through conditions such as these, it should appear 
when the year is ended that they have been unable to so 
manage the finances of their department as to live within the 
appropriation allotted by the City Council; nor is it fair to 



16 City Document No. 35. 

the citizen who expects a certain amount of street work to 
be done that, owing to weather conditions, he should be 
neglected. It is impossible to so plan the work that the offi- 
cials in charge of the different districts of the Paving Divi- 
sion can be instructed or informed as to the amount which 
may become available for their regular work. Under the 
present arrangement, dependent upon the fall of snow in 
the early part of the financial year, the summer work is 
more or less governed ; and there is no way of figuring what 
will come at the very end of the season in the way of cost 
of snow removal. 

I urge at this time, with the experience of the past year 
as a lesson, that in the coming year appropriation be made 
for the regular work of the Paving and Street-Cleaning 
Divisions, and that some arrangement of moneys be made so 
that the cost of snow removal, whatever it may be, can be 
provided for from such further sum as may be set aside for 
that purpose. 

Public Alleys. 

In Boston, as in other cities, there are a great number of 
back passageways, known as alleys. With few exceptions, 
these were owned by private parties, and the city had no 
jurisdiction over them, either as regards cleaning or enforce- 
ment of city ordinances in reference to the throwing or 
sweeping of wastes into the street, and no power to bring 
about sanitary or safe conditions of paving. In some in- 
stances these created a most undesirable state of affairs. 

These alleys in many cases are as important to those hav- 
ing occasion to use them for the delivery of goods as are the 
public streets. In a number of instances the department 
was appealed to by individual abutters, asking that some 
action be taken looking to repaving. Owing to the fact that 
it was oftentimes impossible for a number of abutters to jointly 
agree to do the work, but few alleys had been put in condi- 
tion ; and it was thought desirable on the part of the city 
authorities to ask legislation which would bring about a 
system of control. As a consequence, chapter 298 of the 
Acts of 1898 was passed by the Legislature. Under its pro- 
visions, any alley or passageway not exceeding twenty-five 
feet in width can be laid out and constructed at the expense 
of the abutters, in the same manner as an assessable street, 
such alleys not to be kept in repair, but to be cleaned at the 
expense of the city. Under this act twenty-three alleys and 
passageways were laid out as public alleys, and will be prop- 
erly reconstructed during the coming season. 



Street Department. 17 

Another serious source of, inconvenience can be controlled 
under this act, and that is the blocking of these alleys with 
snow. It has been customary in certain districts of the city 
for the abutters to throw the yard and roof snow into the 
alley, thus making it impassable. In some alleys, by agree- 
ment, this snow was removed by contract; but in others, 
where agreement was not possible, the snow was allowed to 
remain to the great inconvenience of the city sanitary teams, 
as well as the various classes of merchants and trades- 
people who found it necessary to use the alleys for the 
delivery of goods. An effort was made to secure the con- 
sent of the abutters to the removal of this snow by the city, 
the cost to be assessed on the individuals, but only in a few 
instances was this acceptable. The blocking of the alleys . 
with snow, however, is now prevented by requiring a per- 
mit from the Superintendent of Streets to place this snow in 
the alley, and one of the conditions of the permit is that the 
applicant shall produce an agreement with some reliable 
contractor that the snow to be placed in the alley will be 
immediately removed. 

In my opinion, the act should be amended so that authority 
would be given to the city to clear the alleys of snow at the 
expense of the abutters, for the reason that, as I believe, it 
could be done at less cost and more systematically than 
under the present plan of private contract. 

Following is the text of the act : 

[Chapter 298 of the Acts of 1898.] 

AN ACT RELATIVE TO ALLEYS IN THE CITY OF 

BOSTON. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows : 

Section 1. The board of street commissioners of the city of 
Boston may, under the provisions of chapter three hundred and 
twenty-three of the acts of the year eighteen hundred and ninety- 
one and acts in amendment thereof or in addition thereto, lay out 
and construct any alley or passageway in the city of Boston not 
exceeding twenty-five feet in width as a public alley, and the 
provisions of said chapters shall, so far as applicable, apply to 
the laying out and construction of public alleys and the paying of 
the assessable cost thereof, as if they were laid out as highways, and 
any moneys applicable to the laying out and construction of high- 
ways under said act may be used for paying the expenses of laying 
out and constructing public alleys. 

Sect. 2. Said city shall not be liable for any defect or want of 
repair in any public alley, nor be required to keep the same free 
from snow, but shall be required to keep the same free from any 
substance which is liable to cause sickness or a nuisance. 



18 City Document No. 35. 

Sect. 3. Whoever drops or places and suffers to remain in any 
public alley any snow or ice, or any rubbish or obstruction of any 
kind, shall be fined not exceeding fifty dollars for each offence. 

Sect. 4. This act shall take effect upon its acceptance by the 
city council of the city of Boston. — [Approved April 8, 1898. 

Accepted by the citv council and approved by the Mayor, June 
27, 1898. 

Permits. 

The matter of granting permits required by ordinance to 
be taken out for various kinds of work or occupation of the 
streets has received a great deal of careful attention ; and 
with the co-operation of the police the system has been 
operated most successfully. Until 1897 no charge was made 
for permits, but that year, commencing with the first of 
January, a small charge was established; for instance, a 
charge of one dollar for permits to open and occupy the 
streets, and for the various minor permits twenty-five cents. 
It is estimated that this will return to the city the sum of 
twenty thousand dollars per year, which will about cover the 
cost of maintaining the Permit Office. 

The following is the notice giving the cost of permits : 

City of Boston — Street Department.

In the last annual report was printed a copy of the Act 
Relative to the Sewerage Works of the City of Boston, 
passed in 1897. This act has made it possible to accomplish 
much valuable sewer work. As this law is now under fire 
from two different directions, first in the Legislature, and 
secondly in the Supreme Court, where its validity is to be 
tested, the following explanation of the reason and purpose of 
this act is desirable as a matter of record, and also in fairness 
to this department : 

In February, 1896, the writer of this report assumed the 
office of Superintendent of Streets. His first duty was the 
study of the conditions and needs of the several divisions of 
the department. As a result of this study a report was 
presented to the Mayor showing that the conditions as 
regards sewerage works were such as to demand immediate 
action. 

For many years sewerage works of the greatest importance 
and most urgently needed had been postponed from year to 
year until the time had arrived when further delay might 
bring about the most disastrous condition. The great pump- 
ing plant at the Cow Pasture, which had been in continuous 
operation for fifteen (15) years, had received so little 



20 City Document No. 35. 

attention in the way of repairs that at any time a break might 
occur that would disable the entire sewer system of the city. 
The storage basins at Moon Island had more than reached 
their capacity, and the plan of discharging on the ebb tide 
could only be carried out in part. The so-called Canal Street 
Relief Sewer, serving the most thickly settled and important 
section of the city, referred to in the Street Department 
report of 1891, by Superintendent Carter, as in such condi- 
tion as might bring about an outbreak of cholera unless at 
once attended to, was still on the list for attention. The 
sewage of Charlestown and East Boston was still being 
poured upon the shores of those districts, creating a most 
menacing nuisance; although the Metropolitan system of 
sewers, intended for the relief of these sections, was available, 
and rent to the State was being paid therefor, no connections 
therewith had been made. Several of the largest overflow 
sewers were broken down at the outlet, so that at times of 
storm entire districts were backed up and flooded. The 
problem of surface drainage, which had been troubling the 
department for some years, was unsolved. The demands 
of the citizens in the newly-developed parts of the city for 
house sewers could be met only in part. 

This was the condition as regards the construction work. 
In the matter of proper maintenance of sewers, the depart- 
ment was also handicapped. The new features of this act 
were that a certain definite sum was annually authorized for 
the construction of sewers, and such money as might be 
needed for the maintenance of the sewers was made an assess- 
able charge, according to the use of the sewer by the tax- 
payer. 

No branch of municipal work has such close relations to 
the health and comfort of the community as the sewer system 
of a great city. Only those who have had the care, respon- 
sibility and direction of the sewerage system of Boston can 
appreciate the immense benefit which has come from the con- 
ditions made possible under the new sewerage act of 1897,. 
which has been so criticised, so misrepresented, and which 
has been the subject of legal attack, and is now before the 
Supreme Court for decision as to its constitutionality. 

It is a well recognized fact that to properly frame legis- 
lation for the building and assessing of sewerage works 
that will be satisfactory in all its workings is a most difficult 
proposition in every municipality.

Sewer Legislation. 

The first legislation on this subject affecting Boston was 
an Act past in 1709. All sewers and drains at > that time 
were constructed and maintained by private individuals, and 
this first act simply required that permit be obtained from 
the selectmen of the town so that the " inconveniences and 
damages by frequent breaking up the highways, streets, and 
lanes," " for the laying and repairing of drains, or common 
shores, and of differences arising among partners in such 
drains, or common shores, about their proportion of the 
charge for making or repairing the same " might be prevented. 

Various acts and ordinances were passed succeeding this, 
but not until 1837 was an ordinance enacted establishing 
the office of Superintendent of Sewers, and placing the 
matter under the control and direction of the city. After 
this, several acts and ordinances were passed in the attempt 
to more properly arrange for the building and assessing of 
these sewerage works. 

In 1896, when Josiah Quincy became Mayor, the work of 
building sewers was carried on under the authority of chap- 
ter 418, of the Acts of 1892, and amendments. Under this 
act the assessment for house sewers was not to exceed $4.00 
for each lineal foot of sewer built. The overplus came from 
the general tax levy ; and should the sewer cost less than 
$4.00 per lineal foot the abutter received the benefit of the 
lower cost. Thus each year there was a very considerable 
deficit in the assessments, and the individual was benefited 
at the expense of the general tax-payer. The fund from 
which assessable sewers were built was the appropriation 
known as the " 323 Act," which provided $3,000,000 for the 
building of assessable streets and sewers. All sewerage 
works such as the Main Drainage Pumping Station, and 
reconstruction of sewers and outlets, must be provided for 
by concurrent vote of the City Council, and the money 
obtained by loan within the debt limit. Under this system 
the real estate holder, in sections of the city entirely unpro- 
vided with sewerage, was taxed in his general tax-bill for the 
construction, building and maintenance of sewers from which 
he could derive no benefit. Personal property — which cer- 
tainly could not be affected by the construction and main- 
tenance of sewerage works also stood its burden of the cost. 
Moreover, under this system, it was impossible for the City 
Council, with the very limited amount at its disposal — even 
if other demands more attractive to the ordinary city legis- 
lator did not take precedence — to properly provide for the 



22 City Document No. 35. 

very pressing demand for sewerage works. An attack was 
made on the city by the Metropolitan Board of Sewerage 
Commissioners, and an effort made in the Legislature to take 
away from Boston all control of her sewerage works, and a 
part of the plea was that Boston did not adequately care for 
her sewerage system. 

Another question which was becoming of such vital im- 
portance that some action became imperative was the problem 
of how to care for the surface drainage in the outlying dis- 
tricts. The old water courses had become obstructed by 
building operations, the sewers were not originally designed 
to take the surface flow, and whole districts were suffering in 
the wet season from lack of drainage. There was no provi- 
sion of law whereby this matter couid be taken in hand by 
the department. 

Thus the problem presented was a serious one. The mat- 
ter was taken in hand and carefully studied by experts and 
officials of the Sewer Division, and the results submitted to 
the city Law Department, with a view to perfecting an act 
which would give adequate relief, and at the same time 
assess the expense on those benefited by the construction 
and maintenance of sewerage works. As a result of this 
study, what afterwards became chapter 426 of the Acts of 
1897 was formulated, introduced into the Legislature, and re- 
ferred to the Committee on Metropolitan Affairs, who, after 
careful consideration and hearings, reported favorably, and 
the act was passed. 

This act in substance provides that the City Council for 
the city of Boston shall annually appropriate sums not ex- 
ceeding one million dollars in any one year for constructing 
sewerage works in said city, and shall also appropriate, to be 
met by annual charges such sums as the Mayor of said city 
should deem sufficient for maintaining and operating the 
sewerage works. All sewers, drains, pumping stations and 
other works for the collection or disposal of sewage or sur- 
face or ground water in said city shall be included in the 
term sewerage work as used in the act. It further provides 
that the Board of Street Commissioners, with the approval 
of the Mayor, shall order the construction of sewers or 
drains; that streams or water courses within the limits of 
said city may be filled up or diverted, widened, deepened, 
paved or covered by the order of said Board. Said Board is- 
authorized to make takings for sewers, water courses, etc. 
The Superintendent of Streets or such other officer as the 
Mayor of said city shall from time to time direct shall 
carry out such orders. The Treasurer of said city, to meet 



Street Department. 23 

the expenses incurred in constructing any sewerage works, 
shall from time to time and on the request of the Board of 
Street Commissioners, issue sewerage bonds. The Board of 
Street Commissioners, with the approval of the Mayor, are 
empowered to annually determine just and equitable sewer- 
age charges to be paid by estates of said city for the con- 
struction, maintenance and operation of the sewerage works, 
as caused by each estate, the amount of use thereof, if any, 
by the estate or its occupants, and the benefit received there- 
from by the estate. 

Early in the year the Board of Street Commissioners 
authorized the Superintendent of Streets to submit to them 
a study and plan of making assessments under the act, and 
the subject was taken in hand by the Sewer Division of the 
Street Department. A special detail of department engineers 
and expert assistants with a sufficient clerical corps prepared 
the plans and figures, which were later submitted to the 
Board of Street Commissioners, and accepted by them, 
with the approval of His Honor the Mayor, and of the city 
Law Department. 

The preparation of the plans and figures involved an 
immense amount of detail work ; but early in September the 
figures and plans for the assessment were delivered to the 
Board of Street Commissioners, the Street Department keep- 
ing the control of the engineering account in connection with 
the sewer assessment work, this engineering force preparing 
the plans and obtaining the data on which future assessments 
will be based. 

The system of assessments put into operation covering the 
expenditures of the past year is as follows : 

The assessment was divided into two parts — 

1. Maintenance and operation. 

2. Construction. 

For the first part, the maintenance and operation, the city 
government allowed $350,000. One-quarter of that amount 
is assessed on all the estates of the city of Boston on the 
basis of land valuations, for the reason that all the estates in 
the city derive some benefit from sewerage works, through 
the maintenance of sewers, water courses and catch-basins 
which care for the surface water from the streets, and also 
for the benefits they receive from the use of public buildings, 
which are exempt from assessment. The remaining three- 
quarters is based on the water tax, and in this city it has been 
found that the proportion which this assessment should have 
to the water tax is about 1 to 5. 

There are something over thirty classes of water-takers, and 



24 City Document No. 35. 

allowance is made in each special class for such amount of 
water as is not returned to the sewers. The proceeds of this 
assessment are used for the care and maintenance of all the 
sewerage works. 

Class 2, Construction, is sub-divided into three classes. 

The first class is composed of main drainage, main chan- 
nels and other large works of which the whole city derives a 
part of the benefits. This is assessed on all the estates 
according to their land valuation. 

The second class of sewers, which are designated as dis- 
trict sewers or sub-mains, are assessed on district areas, the 
engineering force of the Sewer Division having divided the 
entire city into distinct drainage areas, and for the purpose 
of sewerage works each district is carried in a separate ac- 
count. 

Third, lateral sewers, which are assessed on frontages to 
the amount of $ 1.25 for each assessable foot, any cost in ex- 
cess of this amount being charged on the district area ; and, 
in case of any sewer costing less than $1.25 per foot, the area 
is credited with the difference. 

The assessment for construction is the amount of the sink- 
ing fund charges and interest on 30-year bonds. 

This, in a general way, explains the method of determining 
the sewerage charges. It may be that in practice the plan as 
adopted is not perfect in all its details, and some changes 
may be necessary in future assessments. The assessment, 
however, is determined by the Board of Street Commissioners 
each year, so that any defect in the present plan can be cor- 
rected, and but slight hardship entailed by any assessment of 
the past year. 

As stated above, owing to the inability of the city under 
the old sewerage law to provide the necessary moneys to 
properly care for and extend its sewerage system, many large 
and difficult problems must be met and taken care of at the 
outset. In a few years, however, these larger works of con- 
struction will have been accomplished, the city provided with 
a perfect and comprehensive system of sewerage works, and 
the annual charges be greatly decreased. There will of course 
be some opposition to the tax, which comes as a new burden ; 
but if the large tax-payers and real estate owners were to 
thoroughly consider the entire subject, I believe that they 
would be convinced of the great value of this act, whereby, 
without great hardship to any one, it is possible to perfectly 
develop and maintain the most important branch of city work. 

During the two years that the department has been able 
to conduct its work under this act, the problems which had 



Street Department. 25 

"been presented to every superintendent and administration 
for fifteen years were substantially cared for ; and the city to- 
day is in a condition, as regards its Main Drainage System, 
the large overflows, the most expensive part of the great sur- 
face drains, and the rebuilding of certain broken-down sewers 
most important to the general health, which never could have 
been reached without this legislation. The problems of the 
future are comparatively unimportant, except as regards quan- 
tity, — that is, conditions dangerous to public health and 
safety have been remedied. There still remains to be cared 
for, however, the tremendous demand for house sewers which 
has been brought about by the building of the new avenues 
and the construction of certain lines of main drains. 



SANITARY DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 

$508,152.88. 

The past year the collections of this division were as fol- 
lows : 394,937 loads, 54 cubic feet each, of house dirt and 
ashes, 57,764 loads of house offal. 

The principal changes or improvements made in this 
division during the past year have been as - follows : 

A contract has been closed with the New England Sani- 
tary Product Company for the utilization of about 78 per 
cent, of the swill collected in this city daily (the bulk of 
which was heretofore sold to farmers), with provisions for 
taking the balance whenever it is convenient for the city to 
deliver the same. The plant is located in an isolated section 
of the city which is known as the Cow Pasture, was started 
■on the 15th of November, is now treating daily about 130 
or 140 tons, and in a very short time (as soon as the new 
dumping place on the Roxbury Canal is completed) will take 
the balance of the amount contracted for, while in the near 
future the swill now collected in the East Boston and Dor- 
chester districts will be treated in the same manner. 

There has also been put in force a third separation, viz., 
separating the papers and other combustible waste from the 
ashes. The disposition of this class of waste has heretofore 
been a great nuisance to this department, as it is not desira- 
ble for filling, and, when towed to sea, it often floated back 
upon the neighboring beaches, causing considerable annoy- 
ance and some complaint. 



26 City Document No. 35. 

This waste is now being separated in 55 per cent, of our 
daily collections of ashes, and the same carted to a new plant 
which has recently been erected near Fort Hill Wharf, and 
which has just gone into operation. The matter there will 
be sorted, the marketable portion culled out, and the balance 
burned. , , 

In making this third separation the hearty co-operation of 
the public is desired. 

There have also been purchased 30 new steel-bodied dump- 
ing wagons for collecting offal, which have displaced a like 
number of the old wooden ones heretofore used. 

There has also been built a new dumping-plant at Fort Hill 
Wharf for the more expeditious and sanitary handling of the 
garbage. A similar plant, for a like purpose, is also being 
constructed on the Roxbury Canal at the foot of East Canton 
street, and will be ready for operation in a very short time. 

With these changes in the methods of collection and dis- 
posal of garbage the system in Boston now surpasses that in 
use in any other city in this country. It is the purpose of 
the department during the coming year to still further im- 
prove the service, and by January 1, 1900, there will be 
little room left, as far as can be seen, for improvement. 

The horses of the division are in excellent condition, many 
of the older ones having been replaced, by the purchase of 
new animals. The stables have received such attention 
as has been possible from the maintenance appropriation, and 
the condition^ while not all that might be desired, is fair. 

The series of pictures shown in connection with the San- 
itary Division illustrate the change from old to new methods. 
The first two pictures show the old way of collecting mixed 
waste materials, with the rag-pickers overhauling the barrels. 
This made a continual litter on the streets, besides being ob- 
jected to by the Board of Health, on the ground that this 
material, carried into the houses, was likely to spread dis- 
ease. Under the new T system, householders and storekeepers 
are required to keep their combustible waste separate from 
the ashes. The police have stopped the overhauling of 
barrels by rag-pickers, and the improvement as regards clean- 
liness of streets is quite notable. 

The third plate shows the interior of the plant where the 
combustible waste is cared for. What appears in the centre 
of the plate as a trough is the revolving belt, with the ma- 
terial carried past the men, each sorting into a chute (also 
shown in the picture), the material then passing below into 
the basement, where it is baled for shipment. The next, 
plate shows the continuation of the belt, carrying the refuse,. 



Street Department. 27 

which is of no value, into the furnaces, where it furnishes 
the fuel to operate the plant. The next plate shows the 
building erected for the purpose of handling the combustible 
wastes. 

The next plate shows the loading of the farmers' wagons 
at the South End swill yard under the old system. It can 
be easily seen that this method was most objectionable. In 
the first place the city wagons dumped the offal in great 
masses on the platform. This, being shoveled over into 
the farmers' wagons and again carted through the streets, 
was the source of constant and proper complaint. The offal 
from the central down-town section of the city was carried 
by barge and dumped in the bay, creating a constant nuisance 
and source of complaint to the dwellers along its shores. 
The next plate shows the offal wagons dumping their loads 
into the scow at the South End wharf, and there is also shown 
in this picture the change from the wooden box-carts to the 
iron carts. It will be noted that the old-fashioned box-carts, 
so long in use in Boston, are emptied by the men shoveling 
out the contents, whereas the new iron cart is simply dumped, 
and the load is' disposed of in a few seconds. 

The next picture shows the plant of the New England 
Sanitary Product Company at the Cow Pasture. 

The shop work carried on under the direction of the 
deputy of the Sanitary Division has been continued with ex- 
cellent results, the greater part of the shoeing of the horses, 
building and repairing of carts, harnesses, etc., of the depart- 
ment being done by this division. 



STREET-CLEANING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
$316,052.73. 

Removed 131,705 loads of dirt. 

The appropriation for the Street-Cleaning Division work 
remaining about as in past years it has not been possible to 
extend the service, as recommended in the last annual report, 
to Dorchester, Brighton and East Boston. The work in 
these districts now is either done by the Paving Division — 
which in the busy season is unable to give it proper atten- 
tion — or a portion of the street-cleaning force is sent weekly 
or bi-weekly into these districts. 

A change has been made in the manner of doing the work 
in the West and North ends of the city from machine sweeping 



28 City Document No. 35. 

to hand sweeping, and the results attained have been so 
excellent that this method will be extended. The old way- 
was to sweep the streets at night, two, three or four 
times a week, by machine. Under the present method the 
streets are divided into small sections, and swept by hand 
continuously. The expense has been but slightly greater, 
and the increase in cleanliness very apparent, as, under the 
old way, within a few hours after sweeping, paper and litter 
thrown into the streets would create an untidy appearance. 

I again call attention to the failure on the part of the 
police to enforce the ordinances in regard to throwing waste 
materials into the streets, which, in certain sections of the 
city, makes it impossible to bring about better conditions 
without an expenditure of money which is unnecessary and 
unwarranted. 

Emergency Wagon. 

Suggested by an occurrence which happened early in the 
year, a so-called emergency wagon and emergency corps have 
been established within the department. In February, 
during the progress of a fire, a building collapsed, carrying 
down with it a large number of firemen. This happening at 
an early hour in the morning it was not possible to at once 
get together a force of street department men to assist the 
firemen and police in their efforts to clear away the ruins. 
It was not until almost 7 o'clock that the men could be sum- 
moned to the work, when they were able to render substantial 
assistance. 

After perfecting the organization the following letter was 
sent to the Fire Commissioner, and a similar letter to the 
Board of Police : 



Boston, October 4, 
Col. H. S. Russell, Fire Commissioner .• 

Dear Sir, — I desire to notify you that this department has 
put into service a so-called emergency wagon, and that arrange- 
ments have also been made so that such a number of men as 
might be needed on an emergency call could be furnished from 
this department. The wagon is equipped with ropes, jacks, 
shovels, crowbars, axes, saws and such wrecking and other tools 
as might be of service in case of a falling building, fire or other 
accident. 

Should occasion arise where this department can be of assist- 
ance to your force, a telephone message to City Hall 25 (West 
End Stables, North Grove street) will bring the wagon and such 
number of men as may be deemed necessary. 



Street Department. 29 

The arrangement for summoning the men is as follows : 

On call from the proper authority, the watchman at the yards 
will send, through the men living nearest to the yard, cards to a 
certain number of the men on the district to report at the yard. 
From that point they can be sent wherever needed. Those in 
charge of these men are instructed to report at the place of call 
to the officer in charge, and to take all instructions from him. 

On very short notice quite a considerable number of men 
could be brought together in the down-town district, and the 
limit of the available force is not reached until a thousand or fif- 
teen hundred men are called for. 

Trusting that, should occasion arise, you will not hesitate to 
call upon this department, I beg to remain 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Benj. W. Wells, 

Superintendent of Streets.

In the Bridge Division, owing to the fact that absolutely no 
new money was appropriated except for the regular mainte- 
nance, there has been no work of any considerable importance 
undertaken. I cannot too strongly call the attention of the 
City Council to the necessity for action in relation co many 
of the bridges. Some are in need of almost entire recon- 
struction, and others should be thoroughly overhauled. 
There is also need for additional and improved machinery on 
several bridges to assist in the passage of vessels through the 
draws. The maintenance appropriation is but barely suffi- 
cient to care for the running expenses, such as the payment 
of draw-tenders, the purchase of supplies, and the most ordi- 
nary repairs. It is only by the most careful attention on the 
part of the deputy in charge that the bridges have been kept 
in running order, and accidents avoided.

The new boat, " Governor Russell," just ready to go into 
commission, was purchased by the United States govern- 
ment for war purposes, for the sum of $71,000, the exact 
cost to the city. Also, the propeller ferry-boat " East 
Boston" was taken for the same purpose, for which was paid 
the sum of $57,500, making a total of $128,500. A contract 
was made for another new boat, which will be completed by 
February 15, 1899. Contracts for two new drops and tanks 
have been made, and these are now being put in place. This 
will make all the drops practically new, as the eight drops 
have been built since 1894; and it is expected that no new 
drops will be required for at least twenty years. Two slips 
have been sheathed at an expense of about $4,000. This 
work was necessary, as if it had been left undone much 
longer new piling would have been required, which would 
have cost at least $10,000 more. The work done in this line 
hould last for ten years. 

The boats, slips, tanks, landings and head-houses, with the 
exception of the South ferry, East Boston side, are in good 
condition, and no extraordinary expense will be required for 
some years. 

Another new boat should be built, unless both the boats 
sold to the United States government should be repurchased.

STREET-WATERING DIVISION. 

Expenditure. 

$138,728.57. 

Miles of streets watered, 409.95. 

Prior to 1891, any watering of the city streets was done 
by private subscription. In that year a change was made, 
the city undertaking the watering of all macadam streets, 
leaving the paved streets to still be watered by the abutters. 
The appropriation for this work was taken from the general 
tax levy. 

This method was unsatisfactory in many ways, for the 
reason that on the paved streets the difficulty or neglect of 
the individual abutters making arrangements led to very 
uncertain conditions, and also distributed the cost very un- 
evenly. 

The past year another change was inaugurated, the city 
undertaking the watering of all public streets, whether 
paved or not, assessing the cost of the work on the abutting 
estates, under authority of the statute authorizing all cities 
of 50,000 inhabitants and over to do street-watering by 
special assessment. Under this act, however, it was not 
possible to assess by districts. It was therefore thought 
best to omit, as far as possible, from the assessment 
the more sparsely settled districts of the city, where the 
frontages were very considerable and the cost might bear as 
a burden upon the estates. The line was drawn to substan- 
tially include the territory within four miles of City Hall, 
and all estates within this line abutting on public streets 
were assessed five cents per front foot for the street-water- 
ing, the portion of the city outside of the four-mile limit 
being cared for out of the general tax levy. 

The statute should be amended so that it would be 
possible to assess the watering by districts, in order that the 
sections of the city requiring and receiving the greater 
service and the greater benefit should pay proportionally. 

As a result of the change the service rendered by the 
Street-Watering Division has given great satisfaction, and 
this very important branch of the public service has been 
maintained at its proper standard. 

In the report of the Division Superintendent (see Appen- 
dix G) this ground is more fully covered, with the detail of 
the figures and the act giving authority for doing the work 
in this manner. 

One electric watering car was in service during the 



32 City Document No. 35. 

season, and gave excellent satisfaction. It was not possible 
to extend the system, owing to certain uncontrollable condi- 
tions. 

Smoke Nuisance. 

Under the authority of an act passed by the Legislature in 
1895 in relation to the preventing of smoke nuisance, the 
Mayor appoints the Superintendent of Streets as the official 
to enforce the law. The matter is handled by an inspector, 
and two assistants. I think there is less trouble from this 
source in Boston, perhaps, than in many other large cities. 
At the same, time, it is only constant activity on the part of 
the Street Department that prevents the growth of the evil. 

The department keeps well in touch with the owners of 
large steam plants, and also with the coal dealers. There 
has been very little friction, and all seem willing to co-operate 
as far as possible in keeping good conditions. At certain 
times, owing to the scarcity of proper grades of coal, there is 
a temptation on the part of both dealers and consumers to 
substitute low-grade smoky coal. In these times the work 
of the departirent is made more difficult. 

The report of the Chief Inspector, Appendix L, gives the 
number of inspections and general detail of the work. 

Purchase oe Supplies. 

A most important factor in the proper administration of 
a large department is the purchase of supplies. This branch 
of the work has been given most careful and faithful attention 
by the Purchasing Agent of the department, to whom war- 
rants for all stock and materials are sent, and, with the 
approval of the Superintendent, purchases made for all 
divisions 

The volume of business can be understood from the fact 
that in the past year 9,639 requisitions were made for sup- 
plies ordered by the various divisions. Advantage has been 
taken of the market, when possible, and goods bought by the 
quantity. 

Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 

By an act of the Legislature, chapter 467, Acts of 1898, 
in addition to the bridges already under their charge, all 
bridges between Boston and Cambridge were placed under 
the care of the Commissioners for the Boston and Cam- 
bridge bridges, thus taking from the Boston Bridge Division 
and putting under the control of the Boston and Cambridge 
Commissioners the following additional bridges : 



Street Department. 33 

Essex street, Cambridge street, North Harvard street and 
Western avenue bridge to Cambridge. 

As substantially all the bridges are old and in more or less 
poor condition, constant attention and supervision are re- 
quired to avoid accidents and keep them in good condition 
for travel. I have again to thank my fellow Commissioner, 
Mr. William J. Marvin, of Cambridge, for the excellent 
results and conditions which have been brought about by 
his careful and constant work. 

I would earnestly recommend the building of a new bridge 
between old Cambridge and Brighton at North Harvard 
street. This street has been widened and constructed on 
both the Boston and the Cambridge sides, and the connection 
is made by an extremely narrow and old bridge. As this is 
the bridge leading to the Soldiers' Field, where the college 
sports are held, and is also the main thoroughfare connecting 
Cambridge with the new Metropolitan park, and also with 
Boston, some action should be taken at the coming session 
of the Legislature to provide a more suitable bridge. 

A spe'" 1 commission, consisting of Hon. Josiah Quincy, 
Mayor of Boston, Hon. Edgar R. Champlin, Mayor of Cam- 
bridge, and E. D. Leavitt, Consulting Engineer, was appointed 
under an act of the Legislature to construct the new West 
Boston bridge to Cambridge ; and plans for this structure 
are well in hand, and other work will be proceeded with the 
coming season. 

Craigie's Bridge. 

On the south side of the Boston end of this bridge the 
sidewalk had settled, and hard pine, eight by twelve inches, 
was placed the whole length to keep it in place. 

A new bulkhead and fence have been built on the north 
side of the Cambridge end of this bridge four hundred feet 
in length, commencing at the draw. A brick sidewalk has 
been laid, curbstone reset, and roadway paved from the curb 
to the track. The paving on other parts of the bridge has 
been repaired, and the brick sidewalk on the old part has 
been relaid. The fence on the north side of the bridge and 
part of that on the south side has been given two coats of 
paint. 

The roadway has been swept and cleaned ; the bridge 
watered three times every day when necessary, from April 
to November. 

The draw has been sheathed. 

Ordinary repairs and sweeping and cleaning snow from 
the sidewalks are done by the draw-tender and assistants. 



34 City Document No. 35. 

Before deciding the grade to be established on Bridge 
street, near the entrance to Austin street, where the city of 
Cambridge and Boston and Maine Railroad Company are to 
build an overhead street, it would be well to consider what 
the rise of grade will be and the width and the side to be 
widened when a new bridge will be built to take the place of 
the present Craigie's bridge. A part of this bridge on the 
Boston end and also on the Cambridge end, is in very poor 
condition. Some of the piles in the Cambridge end have 
been in position about one hundred years. Trusses have 
been put under it, holes cut in the bridge, and piles driven 
through to strengthen it. 

The draw is worn out. It is also too narrow. Teams 
and cars cannot pass over together. 

The traffic on this bridge is immense and increasing every 
year. One-half of the travel comes from places outside of 
Cambridge. 

By the time the new Cambridge bridge is built to take the 
place of West Boston bridge, a new bridge, as wide and as 
good as this new bridge will be, will have to be built to take 
the place of Craigie's bridge. 

Harvard Bridge, 

In November, 1897, the roadway for the entire length of 
the bridge was newly sheathed. Heretofore this sheathing 
was renewed every year, either in October or November. 
This year by looking after it carefully and patching when 
necessary, we expect to carry it through until spring. By 
putting down new sheathing in April we will have a smooth 
surface all summer which will be much better for vehicles 
and bicycles. We required more room for storage, etc., at 
house on pier, and added to the present structure twelve feet 
by fourteen feet, one story, and painted it and the building 
connected with it. The greater part of the work was done 
by the draw-tenders on the bridge. The iron work under- 
neath the surface of the bridge, where the salt water comes 
in contact with it, rusts very badly. We had the worst 
places scraped and painted. The work was done by the men 
on the bridge. Next year all the ironwork the whole length 
and width of the bridge will have to be painted. 

Other parts of the bridge are in fairly good condition. In 
April the Welsbach light on the Boston end of the bridge 
was put on. The contract expires in April, 1899. 

The bicycle path put down last November, three feet wide 
on each side of the bridge near the curb, seems to give good 



Street Department. 35 

satisfaction to the riders of these vehicles. Ordinary repairs, 
on the bridge, keeping the electric light globes clean and in 
order, the sidewalks free from snow in winter and cleaning 
the bridge, is done by the draw-tender and his assistants. 

Prison Point Bridge. 

This bridge is kept in as good repair as is possible. It 
being old we do not care to expend a large amount on it. 
We expect the Boston and Maine Railroad Company will 
soon build an overhead street. When they do a new draw 
will then take the place of the old one. 

The draw-tender keeps the bridge clean, and does ordinary 
repairs. 

West Boston Bridge. 

The Boston end of this bridge had settled. To keep it in 
place three trusses were put under the roadway. 

The under plank on the roadway of the draw were re- 
placed by new three-inch plank, and new sheathing laid over 
them. The bridge is in very poor condition, and is going to 
be replaced by anew one. No more work is done than is 
necessary to make the bridge safe for travel. The bridge 
was watered three times daily from April 1 to November 1. 

The ordinary repairs, repairing, paving, and cleaning the 
bridge have been attended to. 

The draw-tender and assistants have swept and cleaned 
the snow from sidewalks and piers, when necessary, and have 
made the repairs. 

A temporary bridge is being built on the south side of this 
bridge to take its place while building the new one. This 
new bridge, when completed, will be named the Cambridge 
bridge. 

Cambridge-street Bridge. 

This bridge is in fair condition. New chains for hoisting 
the draw were put in place. Repairs were made onj the 
bridge, draw and piers ; and the small houses on the piers 
were repaired. 

One arc light has been placed on the Cambridge end of 
this bridge. 

Essex-street Bridge. 

This bridge is in very good condition, having been rebuilt 
two years ago. 

The draw-tenders do all ordinary repairs, such as sweep- 
ing the bridge and repairing sheathing on bridge and draw. 
A small building for tools and storage was placed on the 



36 City Document No. 35. 

pier; the work was done by the men employed on the 
bridge. 

New chains for hoisting draw were put on. 

The bridge was poorly lighted. There were only two arc 
lights the whole length of the bridge, and travel at night 
was unsafe. Three new arc lights have been added, two 
Boston side, one Cambridge side. 

North Harvard-street Bridge. 

Repairs have been made on this bridge, draw, piers and 
small houses on piers. 

This bridge ought to be replaced with a new, wider and 
more modern one. Cambridge has widened Boylston street, 
Boston is now widening and raising the grade of North Har- 
vard street. 

The park on the borders of Charles river, on Cambridge 
side, is very fine. 

Extensive improvements now being made on the Boston 
side of' the Charles river for a park and speedway, when all 
are completed, will make this part of the river quite orna- 
mental. A bridge at this place should be in keeping with 
the surroundings. 

Western-avenue Bridge. 

Repairs were made on the roadway, draw and small 
houses. 

The planking in the waterway, piers and guard were re- 
paired. 

One arc light has been placed on the Cambridge end of 



this bridge. 



In General.

APPENDIX A. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE BRIDGE DIVISION. 



927 and 928 Teemont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1899. 

Mr. Benj. W. Wells, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I herewith submit my annual report of the 
expenditures, income and operations of the Bridge Division 
of Street Department for the financial year ending January 
31, 1899, 

The sum of $1-80,000 was appropriated for the care and 
maintenance of this division during the year. The total 
number of bridges in charge of this division previous to the 
enactment of chapter 467 of the Acts of 1898 was 73. 
Chapter 467 of the Acts of 1898 authorized the appointment 
of a commission by the cities of Boston and Cambridge to 
construct and maintain a bridge over the Charles river, to be 
known as the Cambridge bridge, at, upon or near the site of 
the so-called West Boston bridge, and provided that said 
bridge and draw and all other bridges and draws between the 
two cities should be maintained by Boston and Cambridge 
under the care of this commission. 

In accordance with this Act, on July 1, 1898, four bridges 
of this division, viz., Essex street, Cambridge street, North 
Harvard street and Western avenue bridge to Cambridge 
were transferred to this commission, thus leaving 69 bridges 
in the care of this division. This number does not include 
culverts. 

The total number of bridges in Boston is 132, 32 of which 
are supported wholly by railroad corporations, 100 are wholly 
or in part supported by the city of Boston, including the 
four transferred to the commission. There are eighteen 
tide-water draw-bridges, of which six are opei .._d by steam, 
four by electricity, and eight by hand power. 

The inland bridges have been given a careful inspection, 
and every effort made to keep them in a safe condition. 



4 City Document No. 35. 

They have been thoroughly swept, and kept free and 
clean. 

Good discipline has been maintained among the men. 
They have faithfully and efficiently performed their respect- 
ive duties, and no accidents have occurred through neglect 
of duty. 

I would recommend that the following-named bridges be 
provided with proper machinery to assist vessels through the 
draw, and thus obviate largely the inconvenience to public 
travel, — Chelsea North, Federal street, Dover street, Mt. 
Washington avenue, Meridian street, and Maiden bridge. 
Respectfully yours, 

Wm. H. Cakberry, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE FERRY DIVISION. 



North Ferry, East Boston, February 1, 1S99. 

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, 1899. 

South Ferry, East Boston side, located at the termination 
of Lewis street, covers 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 very poor condition ; 
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, covers an area of 28,135 square feet of 
land and water, upon which are 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 East Boston Ferry Company April 30, 1853, for 999 
years, at a rental of $4,000 per year, which lease was 
assigned to the Ferry Department. This entire wharf is 
sub-let to the Public Institutions Department for $2,000 
per year, making a net loss to this division of $2,000 per 
year, which should be borne by the Public Institutions 
Department. 

North Ferry, Boston side, located at? the termination of 
Battery street, covers 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. 



48 City Document No. 35. 

North Ferry, East Boston side, located at the termination of 
Border street, covers 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. 

There are eight drops. Two new drops and tanks have 
been put in the- past year — one at North Ferry, Boston 
side, and the other at South Ferry, East Boston side — 
thus making all the drops practically new, so that no more 
will be required for at least twenty years. There are twelve 
piers. Two of them have been stripped and planked the 
past year at a cost of about $4,200. 

The rest are in fair condition, with the exception of south 
pier, North Ferry, Boston side, which should be entirely 
rebuilt. 

The landings and head-houses are in good condition, with 
the exception of South Ferry, East Boston side, which is in 
a deplorable state. The coal-shed at this place is in a very 
dangerous condition, so much so that we are unable to store 
coal in it any longer. It is imperative that something be 
done with this landing before long. 

During the past year the ferry-boat " Revere " has been 
hauled out on railway, and stripped and calked, at a cost of 
about $1,000. Owing to her age it was deemed advisable 
not to copper her. 

One new propeller ferry-boat, the " Governor Russell," 
was built the past year, but was sold to the United States 
Government, being required for war purposes, for the sum of 
$71,000, before she could be given her trial trip. The pro- 
peller ferry-boat " East Boston " was also sold to the govern- 
ment for the sum of $57,500. 

A contract was made for a new ferry-boat, which is now 
building, and should be completed by the middle of Feb- 
ruary ; and another new boat must also shortly be contracted 
for, unless one of the boats sold to the government is to be 
repurchased. 

Respectfully yours, 

William F. McClellan, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Deputy Superintendent. 



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

This work has been done on practically the same basis as in 
former years, although there have been some changes made in the 
interests of economy and better service. The method of collecting 
ashes by what was known as the route system has been abolished in 
the section of the city north of Massachusetts avenue, and the more 
satisfactory and less expensive method of collection by districts or 
divisions substituted. The offal will be handled in the same manner 
during the summer months, and more frequent collections will be 
made. 

The cost of disposing of the 1,500 loads of refuse collected daily 
is constantly increasing, as owing to the undesirable character of 
much of it for use as filling it is difficult to obtain suitable dumping 
places. The low lands contiguous to the thickly settled parts of the 
city have for the most part been filled, and the only available dumps 
are so far distant from the points of collection that the expense of 
hauling is abnormally increased. In fact, the economic disposal of 
this kind of refuse, namely, ashes, is becoming a serious prob- 
lem, and unless it can be made of commercial value in the near 
future it will be necessary to secure additional dumping places on 
the water front, so that it may be towed to sea. Much progress has 
been made toward this end in the separation by householders and 
storekeepers of the combustible portion of the waste, which has

been placed by them in a third receptacle, and otherwise tied in 
bundles for convenience in handling. It is collected by the paper 
carts, and delivered at the plant of the City Refuse Utilization 
Company on Atlantic avenue. Here the various grades of paper, 
rags, twine, etc., are culled out, put up in bales and sold as merchan- 
dise, the balance being burned in a Morse-Boulger furnace specially 
designed for the purpose. This plant has been in successful opera- 
tion since January, 1899, and was designed to utilize all combustible 
refuse collected in the city proper north of Massachusetts avenue, 
which has been estimated at about 300 cubic yards daily. It is obvious 
that the disposal of clean ashes, separated from lighter, but more 
bulky, refuse — such as paper, etc. — is a comparatively easy matter 
to handle. In the short time that it has been tested, most satis- 
factory results have been obtained, and I would recommend its exten- 
sion to other sections of the city, where smaller and less expensive 
plants might be centrally located for treating refuse of this kind. 

The separation has been brought about largely through the distri- 
bution of circulars calling the attention of housekeepers to the 
matter, and when they understand more fully its object their 
co-operation will be of invaluable assistance to this division. 

During the past year a new method has been adopted for the 
disposal of the two hundred and fifty tons of offal collected in the 
city daily. In past years it has been the custom to sell to farmers 
each day as large a portion as possible of the collections, the balance 
remaining unsold being towed to sea; but, as stated in the report for 
1897, a contract was made for a period of ten years with the New 
England Sanitary Product Company for the utilization of this ma- 
terial, and on November 15, 1898, their plant was put into operation, 
and they are now treating from 180 to 200 tons of refuse daily, 
which we deliver to their boats. The balance, about fifty tons, is 
collected in the outlying sections of the city, and is disposed of 
there by the contractors. 

I would respectfully call your attention to Barney Dumping Boat 
No. 1, which has been in service in this city for more than twenty 
years. The boat is unseaworthy, and will not admit of further 
repairs. Attention is also called to the stables in charge of this 
division, which are very much out of repair. Special appropriation 
for their reconstruction is recommended, as also for the purchase of 
a new boat. 

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

House Offal. 

There are employed in the removal of house offal two hundred 
and thirty-four men and ninety-eight wagons. The offal is removed 
from dwelling-houses twice a week during the summer, and once a 
week during the winter months, and from hotels, markets and restau- 
rants 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. 

Four sections of the city are done by contract, as follows: The 
collection of house offal in East Boston, by T. Mulligan; Dorchester 
District, by John Bradley; Brighton District and a portion of West 
Boxbury, by George T. Barnes. 

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

1894 $26,262 40 

1895 27,374 47 

1896 21,884 11 

1897 17,416 75 

1898 ■ 10,982 25 

The following table shows the number of loads of house offal 
collected and removed in the last five (5) years:

1895 51,327 

1896 56,402 

1897 56,783 

189S . 57,764 

Each load of offal is equivalent to fifty-six (56) cubic feet, and has 
a maximum weight of one and a quarter (14/) tons at certain seasons 
of the year. 

Of the amount, 57,764 loads, collected during the year 1898, 
3,726 were collected by the East Boston contractor, 1,472 by the 
Brighton contractor, 6,058 by the Dorchester contractor, and 805 
loads by the West Boxbury contractor, leaving 45,703 loads collected 
by city teams. 

The collection of this material is attended to in winter by an 
average regular force .of 71 city offal carts and 169 men, and on 
contract woik 27 offal carts and 65 men, making a total of 98 offal 
carts and 234 men. 

The disposal has been made during the year in the following 
manner: The offal from the markets and the offal that had decayed 
was put on board a scow and towed to sea; that of Charlestown was 
taken to the yard at Maiden bridge and there disposed of to farmers; 
that of East Boston was collected by a contractor and removed to 
Revere; the offal of the city proper, Boxbury, a part of West 
Roxbury and South Boston was conveyed to the yard at the South 
End and disposed of to farmers, who removed it daily; a portion of 
the West Boxbury offal was collected by contract and removed to 
Needham; that of Brighton was collected by contract and disposed 
of outside of the district; and that in Dorchester was collected by a 
contractor and sold to farmers. 



Street Department — Sanitary Division. 133 

During the year a contract was made with the New England 
Sanitary Product Company, for the utilization of the offal collected in 
the city daily; and commencing November 15, 1S98, the offal collected 
in the South Boston, Charlestown, City Proper, Roxbury, and part 
of West Roxbury districts, in all about 80 per cent, of the total daily 
collections, was sent to Fort Hill Wharf and deposited on boats 
owned by this company. In order to carry out the provisions of 
this contract it was necessary to construct a new wharf at the foot 
of Oliver street, at an expense of about $6,000, and also to purchase 
twelve new steel dumping carts. 

Out of 57,764 loads collected during the past year in the city and 
suburbs, 34,141 loads, or 59 per cent., was fed to hogs, and 23,652 
loads, or 41 per cent., carried in dumping boats to the sea.

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 Diet and Ashes. 

In the collection of house dirt and ashes there are employed 380 
men and 163 carts. This material is removed from hotels, tenement 
houses and stores daily; from dwelling houses once a week. 

The City Ordinances of 1898 (chap. 38, sect. 1) require that 
house dirt and ashes shall be kept in an easily accessible place for 
their removal, 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, 28 per cent, was carried 
to sea. 

The collection of house dirt and ashes in four sections of the city 
is done by contract, as follows: South Dorchester, by Denis Flynn, 
and North Dorchester by Patrick J. Lyons; East Boston, by W. F. 
Hedrington, and a part of West Koxbury by John J. Moore. 

Of the 394,937 loads of ashes collected during the past year, 
234,223 loads, or 60 per cent., were deposited on low lands in the 
outlying districts of the city; 113,528 loads, or 28 per cent., were 
towed to sea, and the balance, 47,186 loads, or 12 per cent., 
were collected by contractors and used on low lands for filling. 

Good results were 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 distribution 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 previously existed being in 
a large measure prevented. 

Several complaints have been received concei'ning the failure of 
the division to promptly remove offal and ashes; investigation 
of these has usually shown that either offal has not been properly 
separated from ashes or other refuse, as is insisted upon by the 
department, or else that the receptacles were kept in some inacces- 
sible place, or were larger than the ordinances provide and the 
regulations of the department permit. 

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

Notice is hereby given that the new plant erected for the inciner- 
ation of combustible waste will be in operation at an early date, and 
the following regulations in regard to the three separations of refuse 
will be enforced by this department: 

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, such as paper, rags, excelsior, straw, mat- 
tresses, old clothes, pasteboard boxes, carpets, etc., 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, and must be protected from the weather until collected by 
the proper authorities. 

The above rules must be complied with, or refuse will not be 
removed. 

The removal of ashes and other refuse is governed by the fol- 
lowing provisions of law: 

Acts of 1892, Chapter 419, Section 112. 

All receptacles for ashes, waste and other substances, liable, by 
spontaneous combustion or otherwise, to cause a fire, shall be made 
of incombustible material, satisfactory to the inspector. Every 
building used as a tenement or lodging house shall have outside, and 
appurtenant to it, a suitable space, satisfactory to the inspector, for 
the temporary deposit of garbage and other refuse matter. 

Kevised 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. 

Kevised 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.

Superintendent of Streets.

Deputy Supt. Sanitary Division. 
November, 1898. 



136 City Document No. 35. 

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. 

The annual spring cleaning of the entire city was undertaken 
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 2; Tuesday, May 3; 
"Wednesday, May 4; Thursday, May 5; Friday, May 6; 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, 

Superintendent of Streets. 
City Hall, Boston, 1898. 

Note. — This circular, printed in English, Hebrew and Italian, was posted in 
prominent 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. 

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 three hundred and eighty 
men and one hundred and forty-two city carts, also by six carts 
with the East Boston contractor, twelve carts with Dorchester con- 
tractors, and three carts with the "West Boxbury contractor. 

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 about 44 cubic feet. Dur- 
ing the year 1897 all the ash carts owned by the city were equipped with side-boards, 
increasing their capacity to 54 cubic feet, but for the purpose of comparison the old 
basis has been used.

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 dumpiug-boats, known as the Barney dumping- 



Street Department — Sanitary Division. 163 

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 wbarf 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. 

Heeht's Wharf. 

Situated at 466 to 470 Atlantic avenue, containing about 35,460 
square feet, placed in charge of the Sanitary Division under a lease 
dated March 1, 1898, and extending for a period of ten years. This 
wharf adjoins and is next to Fort Hill Wharf, and ia occupied in 
part by the New England Sanitary Product Company as a berth for 
their scows ; also by the building* of the City Utilization Company, 
for the disposal of waste and rubbish. 

Gibson Street Plant. 

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

The Sanitary Division cares for the horses of the Street Cleaning 
Division located at Kutherford avenue and Highland street, bearing 
a proportionate share of the cost of maintaining both of these 
stables.

LEAVITT ENGINES— PUMPING STATION, SEWER DIVISION. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 165 



South Boston. 

During the past year the rebuilding of the Kemp-street outlet 
has been started and 600 feet completed. B-street sewer between 
Dorchester avenue and Fourth street was rebuilt, affording a 
proper outlet for sewers in that vicinity, and allowing the rebuild- 
ing of many small tributary sewers as the future may demand. 

Dorchester-avenue sewer, between D street and Dexter street, 
and the sewers in Dexter and Ellery streets were also rebuilt, 
thereby obviating a long-standing source of complaint, and doing 
away with the temporary sewer overflow into the South bay at D 
street, the whole flow of this territory being carried to the B and 
Seventh- streets overflow, which was built last year. 

The H-street sewer and overflow were rebuilt between Eighth 
street and tide- water, affording an adequate outlet for a large dis- 
trict in time of heavy storm, and doing away with the numerous 
complaints the division has received in the past, of water backing 
up into the cellars. 

In regard to future work the first thing that demands our atten- 
tion is the effect which the change in location of the New York, 
New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company will have upon the 
sewer system. The sewer in Blake' street will have to be rebuilt, 
as it is not strong enough to stand the jarring of the trains which 
will pass over it. The sewers in Dorchester avenue, Powers 
street and Boston street are not large enough for the future 
requirements of the district, but as they will answer for a number 
of years it is perhaps better policy not to attempt to rebuild 
them at the present time in anticipation of the raising of the grades 
of the streets, but to leave this matter for the future, and when the 
district becomes so well developed as to overcrowd these sewers, 
to relieve it by running a large main sewer around the artificial 
hill caused by raising the grades of the streets, finding a location 
for this sewer in streets which will have to be laid out in the 
vacant land either to the east or west of Dorchester avenue. 

As the filling of Columbia road between City Point and Mt. 
Vernon street is nearing completion it would be advisable to 
build the sewers in this road as soon as possible. 

The Commonwealth lands on South Boston flats, which by 
reason of their proximity to the new Union Station will shortly be 
placed on the market for commercial purposes, will therefore 
require the attention of this division during the coming year. 

The sewer in D street, between Dorchester avenue and Ninth 
street, and also between Second street and Broadway, should be 
rebuilt as the sewer is broken down and settled in many places, 
and is in a bad condition. 

East Boston. 

Connection with the Metropolitan sewer has been made at 
Eagle square and work is in progress at Chelsea street and at 
Curtis street. The connection with the Metropolitan sewer will be 



166 City Document No. 35. 

made at Chelsea street early in the coming year. The sewers in 
Bennington and Chelsea streets, between Eagle square and Putnam 
street, are too small to properly drain the territory and should be 
rebuilt. House sewers and surface drains are needed in the East 
Boston parkway. 

The East Boston low-level sewer should be built as soon as 
possible to drain the low lying territory at Orient Heights, and to 
afford an outlet for the sewers in the proposed Bennington-street 
boulevard and the sewers and surface drains ought to be promptly 
begun if the construction of this boulevard is ordered. 

Chablestown. 

All connections with the Metropolitan sewer have been made 
in this district, except in Beacham-street district. The Beach- 
street overflow is in progress, and will be finished early in the 
coming year. The Beacham-street district should be connected 
at an early date, and the sewers rebuilt on the separate system 
using those now in existence for surface drains as far as it is 
possible. 

The sewers in Main and Cambridge streets, from Beach street 
to the Somerville line, are in a very leaky condition and much too 
small to satisfactorily drain the territory through which they run. 
They should be rebuilt at the earliest possible date, or at all events 
before the grade of Cambridge street is raised in abolishing the 
grade crossings at this point. 

Brighton. 

About 600 feet of six feet six inches by seven feet, and 400 
feet of six feet by six feet brick conduit for Salt creek, and 
1,600 feet of thirty inches by thirty-six inches brick sewer in 
Cambridge street, between Seattle street and Charles river were 
built. The outlet for house sewers and surface drains for the 
part of Commonwealth avenue, between Summit avenue and 
Kinross road, has been started, and the house sewer system for 
the Aberdeen district practically completed. During the coming- 
year Commonwealth avenue, between Warren street and Chestnut 
Hill avenue should have a complete system of house sewers and 
surface drains, and the surface drainage system for the Aberdeen 
district should be built. 

The Shepard-street brook should be taken in a covered conduit 
from the pond at the wool-scouring establishment on North Beacon 
street, near the iron bridge to Shannon street and the Faneuil 
Valley brook should be improved by deepening and widening from 
the same pond to Lake street. 

The conduit for the Salt Creek brook should also be finished 
from Charles river to its present terminus at Gardner street. 

West Roxbury. 

On Goldsmith brook, between Washington and South streets, 
there were built about 1,600 feet of brick conduit, principally eight 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 167 

feet six inches by six feet nine inches. This is the portion of the 
brook which was subjected to continual flooding at every rain. 

Surface drains in Keyes and Lee streets and a conduit in Calder 
street for Franklin park branch of Stony brook are in progress, 
as well as house sewers in "Walter and Jones streets, South street, 
near Congreve street, Congreve street, Wachusett street, and 
outlets for Temple and Perhani streets, all of which will be com- 
pleted early in the coming year. During the coming year sewers 
should be built in Mendum street, Gardner street, between the 
Metropolitan sewer arid Baker street, and a surface drain in Baker 
street from Spring street brook to Gardner street. Goldsmith 
brook conduit should be extended to West Roxbury parkway. 
Sewers and surface drains in Spring street, between Centre street 
and Gardner street, are needed, and the West Roxbury low level 
sewer should be extended beyond Forest Hills. 

Dorchester. 

The most important work done in Dorchester during the past 
year has been in the way of surface drains of large size to carry 
the somewhat large brooks which pervade this territory. 

This is in pursuance of the recommendations made in former 
reports. The old sewers, built many years ago, on the " com- 
bined " system, were professedly designed only for a small per- 
centage of the total storm-water of the district. Now that new 
streets are being laid out in every direction, each one with its 
catch-basins taking the surface water from the gutters, the old 
sewers refuse to longer carry this additional load. Therefore, 
a separate system of surface drains for storm water only is 
imperatively demanded ; and this division has made a good 
beginning in this direction. 

The large surface water drain to carry the water of " Tenean 
creek," commencing (at the lower end) at what is known as 
" King's Mill pond," in the neighborhood of Harrison square, has 
been finished nearly up to Charles street, near Field's Corner 
Station. This will drain out the so-called " Clay-Pits " (back of 
the car stables), a long standing nuisance, and will afford good 
surface drainage to Bloomfield and Tonawanda streets and Geneva 
avenue, and the whole of that neighborhood. A branch of this 
drain crossing Gibson and King streets and running up through 
Rosemont street has been well carried up towards its final desti- 
nation on Carlisle street. For a considerable portion of the way 
this was built in the same trench with the new outlet house sewer 
for this region. 

A branch of this last-named drain should be extended during 
the coming season through Shawmut park (now Florida street) to 
Edwin and Templeton streets. 

One thousand seven hundred and fifty linear feet of these drains 
were built in 1898, making, with what was built in 1897, a total 
length of 1,960.5 linear feet of conduit, running from 14 feet X 12 
feet to 6 feet X 6 feet 6 inches in size, built to date. 



168 City Document No. 35. 

Another improvement of great importance has been commenced 
on the " Canterbury branch" of Stony brook, between the West 
Roxbury boundary line at Harvard (formerly Back) street, and 
the upper large culvert on Lauriat avenue. 

With a view to immediate relief of this district from the win- 
ter and spring floods, this improvement, so far, has taken the 
shape of an open ditch (the excavation for which will all be 
utilized in building a more permanent channel) , with the excep- 
tion of the portion lying in Callender street, between Lyons and 
Don streets, where a brick conduit ten feet in diameter is being 
constructed at a grade of from fourteen to twenty-two feet below 
the surface ; the cutting being in solid rock. This solid construc- 
tion is adopted so that the grading and curbing of Callender street, 
under chapter 323 of 1891, can be proceeded with, as ordered by 
the Board of Street Commissioners. 

The whole territory, also, between Lauriat avenue and Norfolk 
street, especially in the neighborhood of Dumas, Mascot and 
Willowwood streets, is in a state of bad flooding in storms ; and 
although the open ditches we are now cutting there will be inval- 
uable for temporary relief, yet they are shifty and unreliable for a 
term of years. They should be superseded by brick or concrete 
channels in the same excavation as soon as funds will allow. 

An important feature of this same Canterbury branch, namely, 
" Oakland Garden Fork," has been under construction all the 
way from the Franklin Field ditch upward. With the com- 
pletion of Columbia road from Blue Hill avenue to Stanwood 
street and of many streets in this vicinity, a large amount of sur- 
face water was necessarily carried to this water-course ; and 
during the past year the improvements have been started in 
several places and should be completed the coming year, so as to 
take care of all the water coming down from the north-east cor- 
ner of Franklin Park and through the former Oakland Garden 
territory, which water has heretofore done much damage by 
flooding. 

Work has also been nearly completed for the surface drain to 
carry the water of Mattapan brook from Norfolk street through 
Capen and Fuller streets, near Fairmount, and through Selden 
street to Morton street. There it can empty into an unoccupied 
swamp until such time as the construction of the remainder of 
the ' ' Blue Hill avenue boulevard " provides for the improve- 
ment of this brook down to its extreme lower end at the Neponset 
river. 

The whole of the large valley of "Davenport brook," em- 
bracing all that territory between Lower Mills and Ashmont, is 
practically destitute of any system of surface drainage ; and the 
growing demand for catch-basins here, and the bad flooding 
occurring under the present arrangement, make a large amount 
of construction imperative here as soon as the necessary funds 
are provided. 

The necessary takings have been made for the improvement 
of what is called the Freeport-street brook, between Dorchester 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 169 

bay and Freeport street ; this improvement should be started 
this coming year ; and the brook channel, between Talbot avenue 
and Blue Hill avenue, should receive the attention of the division, 
as we have received many complaints from the same. 

The improvement of the surface drainage for the Devon-street 
district should also receive our early attention. 

The separation of the surface water and the house sewage in 
the district drained by the Dorchester brook sewer is a very im- 
portant matter and should be carried along to completion, as 
we have already started to apply this principle at the upper end 
of this district. 

With the building of the proposed Columbia road at Mt. Ver- 
non street, the old brook channel, between tidewater and 
Edward Everett square, will necessarily have to be improved, 
thereby affording an overflow for the Crescent-avenue sewer, 
which in time of storm is very much overtaxed. 

It will be necessary to make an extensive study during the 
coming year for a gravity outlet for the system of sewers which 
is now taken care of by the Lyons-street pumping station. When 
these sewers were built it was the intention of this division 
eventually to provide an outlet to take their flow by gravity to a 
tunnel sewer in the vicinity of Park street connecting with the 
Dorchester interceptor, but during the last year the Metropolitan 
Sewerage Commissioners have made an extensive study for a high 
level sewer which will pierce the Stony brook divide in the 
vicinity of Mt. Hope Cemetery, and will be deep enough to 
afford an outlet for this system of sewers and to connect the 
Lyons-street pump wells with the Metropolitan high level sewer 
at this point ; this sewer can probably be built considerably 
cheaper than the proposed Park- street tunnel, and it will there- 
fore become necessary to make surveys to find the best route for 
such a sewer. 

In connection with the building of the south branch of Tenean 
brook, the new outlet for Carlisle street, which is designed to re- 
lieve the Centre-street tunnel of a part of its overload, has been 
extended 3,345 feet, making a grand total of 3,460 linear feet to 
date ; 1,820 feet of which are combined with the Rosemont-street 
surface drain in the same trench. 

This outlet will undoubtedly be completed during the coming- 
season, so as to afford much desired relief to the Centre-street 
tunnel . 

One of the most conspicuous cases of house-sewer construction 
in this district includes the Adams and Richmond-street sewers 
at Lower Mills, of which 5,295 linear feet in all have been built 
in 1898. 

This will practically round out the sewerage of ' ' Lower Mills 
Village " for the present ; leaving only scattered small portions 
to be built as called for by future needs. 

During the past year the sewer system for Columbia road be- 
tween Franklin Park and Edward Everett square has been car- 
ried on, and with the exception of the outlet in Ceylon street is 
ready for house connections. 



170 City Document No. 35. 

The sewer system for the northern half of Savin Hill has been 
started and will be pushed to completion during the coming year. 

An unusual amount of sewer work was completed this year on 
account of the improvement of many streets under chapter 323 of 
the Acts of 1891, etc., and these streets necessarily required 
attention from the division. 

Roxbury. 

The sewer system in Columbus avenue, between Northampton 
street and Franklin Park, is now complete ; the point between 
Roxbury crossing and Dimock street being the connecting link. 

The sewer in Hemenway street has been built and also part of 
the sewer in passageway in rear of Boylston street that has caused 
so much trouble. 

The surface drain and house drain have been built in Peter- 
borough street ; before either can be used it will be necessary to 
provide an outlet for this street. 

The sewer in Halleck street, that has been so often reported in 
a dangerous condition, has at last collapsed. The sewers in this 
district are all too high, and to rebuild this sewer at its present 
grade on the combined system would be a mistake, but in order to 
lower it it would be necessary to rebuild the 3 feet 9 inches X 4 feet 
brick sewer in Ruggles street and Halleck street to the railroad, 
which is in good condition but too high. It has been decided to 
build a house sewer in Ruggles street and Halleck street, which 
will be connected with the intercepting sewer in Ruggles street at 
the railroad, and build it low enough to be extended all over the 
district. This has been done in Ruggles street as far as Halleck 
street, and when the Halleck-street sewer which is over 1,000 
feet long is being constructed, the house sewer will be built in the 
same trench and used as an underdrain, thereby saving the cost 
of pumping the large quantity of water which is discharged at the 
breweries. When the proper time arrives the sewers in this dis- 
trict can be changed into the separate system. 

When the water in the Back Bay Fens was lowered for the 
construction of the Ipswich-street bridge, the deposit brought 
down by the Stony Brook channel was exposed. The odors aris- 
ing from this deposit were so objectionable that it was decided to 
remove it. A large centrifugal pump, boilers, engines, etc., and 
flexible discharge pipe were built in pontoons and the deposit be- 
tween Stony Brook channel and the Agassiz bridge was pumped 
into the Stony brook covered channel below the gate-house and 
flushed to Charles river, where it was dredged into scows and 
carried to sea. The cost of this work was $25,000. 

It has been recommended in several previous reports to build 
house sewers along the side of Stony Brook channel, between 
Huntington avenue and Ehnwood street. This work has not yet 
been started. 

The Muddy River conduit in Brookline avenue should be re- 
paired and a considerable portion of it rebuilt. This will be very 
expensive work. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 171 

A surface drain should be built in Heath street, between Hunt- 
ington avenue and Lawn street. When this work is done there 
will be less trouble with the syphon at the Parkway which is con- 
tinually being cleaned of the gravel which washes from Parker 
Hill. 

The surface drains in the South Huntington avenue system are 
still connected with the sewer in Heath street. 

Nothing has been done about the overflow or surface drain for 
the Vila street district. 

Jersey street is to be the outlet for the entire surface drain 
system of the Back Bay lands, bounded by Brookline avenue, 
B. & A. R.R. and the Parkway. The outlet will drain into the 
Muddy River conduit in Brookline avenue ; it will be a 4 feet 
9 inches circular brick drain. This size is required to provide for 
water which should drain into the Muddy river channel (the natural 
outlet) through smaller drains. This will be a very expensive piece 
of work. Piles from 20 to 35 feet in length will be required for a 
foundation. An expensive tide-gate will be required to keep the 
tide which may rise to grade 15 from flooding the passageways, 
yards and cellars. The catch-basins in the passageways will be 
grade 13. This drain should now be built, as the drains built on 
Boylston street, Peterborough street and Ipswich street now 
drain on to private land. The house sewer for Jersey street will 
be in the same trench as the surface drain. 

Boylston-street extension is in an unfinished condition. The 
house drains have not been built. The surface drain discharges 
on to the land at the side of the street and cannot be provided 
with an outlet until Jersey street drain is built. 

Peterborough street sewers and drains are built, but there is no 
outlet. A sewer is required in Jersey street, connecting this 
sewer with the Boylston street sewer ; and the catch-basin drain 
must wait for the Jersey street drain. 

Ipswich street has all its sewers and drains built, with the excep- 
tion of the house drains. This sewer is connected with the Boyl- 
ston street sewer, but the surface drain discharges on to the land 
and must wait for the Jersey street system and a surface drain in 
a proposed street, from Jersey street, parallel to Boylston-street 
extension. 

Sewers and surface drains have been built in the Francis street 
district, which is to be changed into the separate system. A 
surface drain has been built which drains into Muddy river, and 
a house sewer has been built in the Riverway drive which is to 
connect with the Brookline sewer at Francis street the coming 
year. 

Sewers in the old Francis-street district are on the combined 
system and discharge into the Brookline sewer without an over- 
flow ; on account of the elevation of the district above the outlet, 
there has been no flooding. 

Streets in the low part of the district (which lies to the south 
of Francis street) have been built, and, if the sewers were to be 
built on the combined system, they would receive the storm water 



172 City Document No. 35. 

from the old district and cellars would be flooded. It has there- 
fore been decided to build new sewers on the separate system and 
run a system of surface drains over the old district. 

The outlet for these sewers is carried across Muddy river to the 
Brookline sewer ; this outlet is too small for the whole district and 
will have to be enlarged ; this will be done by carrying another 
pipe across the river alongside the present sewer ; if complica- 
tions had not arisen with the Boston and Albany Railroad, this 
would have been done during the present year. 

The most important sewers completed during the past year in 
the southern part of this district were the relief sewer for the 
Notre Dame street district which has suffered for many years 
from floods of surface water ; the rebuilding of the Haskins street 
sewer which was found in a very bad condition and from which 
we have received numerous complaints in the past ; the much 
called for sewer in Benton street, thereby abating a nuisance of 
long standing, and the completion of the long-needed Harrison 
avenue sewer, thereby allowing the city to rectify the sewer sys- 
tem of the adjacent territory. 

During the past year we have received numerous complaints 
from the sewers in Cottage terrace and Marshfield street, and, 
after an examination of the same, found that they should be re- 
built, as they have settled and become so distorted that it is 
impossible to clean them. 

The outlet for the proposed sewer in Ritchie street has been 
completed during the past year, and by building the sewer in 
Ritchie street we will relieve a large area from which we have 
received numerous complaints. 

During the coming year the Sherman street district should be 
attended to, as the sewers in this district are much too small and 
a suitable outlet should be built, thereby relieving a large 
district. 

This matter has been recommended for the past seven years 
and is a much needed public improvement. 

City Proper. 

The Canal Street Relief Sewer was built in 1896 in Central 
street; it has been carried on through India, Commercial and 
Clinton streets ; this year it was built in Fulton and Cross streets. 
As fully described in last years' report, the route of the sewer was 
changed from Blackstone street to Cross street. In crossing 
Hanover street, a section was built which will allow the proposed 
subway to pass over the sewer. It was found to be impracticable 
to construct this crossing without making a syphon with a depres- 
sion in grade of at least eleven inches. The arch of the sewer 
is flat, being constructed of iron " I " beams embedded in con- 
crete. The sewer has been constructed to within about one 
hundred feet of Endicott street and will be completed the coming 
year to Canal street at Traverse street. 

The Kneeland street sewer has been completed ; the South 
street sewer is within a few feet of completion at Harvard street ; 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 173 

and the district regulator in Dewey square is ready for its machin- 
ery. When these things are finished, and the small regulator at 
Oswego street is built, the change in the sewer system at the 
Southern station will be completed for the present, but eventually 
this district should be changed to the separate system. The 
district regulator at Dewey square, when completed, will take 
the place of the present regulator at Dover street, and should 
greatly help the district between Dover street and Essex street, 
covering an area of 164 acres which will then be below, instead 
of above, the regulator. This benefit will be more fully appre- 
ciated when the changes in the Pumping Station and the extension 
of the Reservoirs at Moon Island are completed. 

That portion of the intercepting sewer which was in the line of 
the subway, on the Terminal Company's ground near Federal 
street bridge, has been destroyed and a new sewer 235.5 feet 
in length has been built by this Division and paid for by the 
Terminal Company. 

Work has been started on the sewer system of Charlestown 
street. The eighteen-inch pipe sewer on the east side, from 
Causeway street to Stillman street, has been built, but will not be 
in use until the Canal Street Relief Sewer reaches this point. The 
sewer on the west side cannot be built until the buildings are 
removed. 

Canal street has been laid out, the catch-basins have been built 
and connected with the old sewer which will be rebuilt when the 
Canal Street Relief Sewer reaches this street at Traverse street. 

The old wooden sewer in Way street, destroyed by the widening 
of the Boston and Albany location for the N.Y., N.H. & H. R.R., 
has been replaced with a twelve-inch pipe sewer by the N.Y., 
N.H. & H. R.R., at their expense. 

A sewer is needed in Albany street from Wareham street 
toward Plympton street. 

The sewer in Hanover street crosses Washington street under 
the subway in a syphon and discharges through the Friend street 
sewer which is seven feet higher than the syphon. The grade of 
the syphon was so placed that the sewer from its outlet could be 
carried down Hanover street to the Canal Street Relief Sewer in 
Cross street, when the relief sewer should reach that street. The 
Canal Street Relief Sewer is now ready and the connecting sewer 
should be built, unless the proposed subway in Hanover street is 
going to be built immediately, in which case the sewer should be 
built in connection with it. 

Sewers in North street, India street, Milk street, and adjoining 
streets, Commercial street to Clark street, and Salem street, should 
be rebuilt. 

Moon Island. 

Of the estimated amount of excavation to be done on the 
extension of reservoir, 152,497 cubic yards, or about 95 per 
cent., have been taken out. The easterly wall of the reservoir 
is completed, and one-third of the southerly wall. Three-quarters 



174 City Document No. 35. 

of the easterly division wall is completed, and one-third of the 
foundation of the centre division wall is in place. The masonry 
is completed in gate chamber No. 4. 

The roadway embankment at southerly end of reservoir has 
been filled to grade 17, and the gravel filling and ballast on slope 
is in place. Two-thirds of the ballast placed is covered with 
rip-rap. 

Two hundred and ten linear feet of flushing sewer have 
been built; 610 linear feet of ten-inch and fifteen-inch drain 
pipe have been laid, and three (3) manholes built. 

The twenty-four-inch iron and earthen pipe for tide gate 
chamber outlet has been laid. 

About 111,000 cubic yards of waste material have been 
deposited for filling back of sea wall. 

The storm of November 27 did considerable damage to the out- 
fall sewer embankment between the island and Squantum, by 
washing away the gravel above the rip-rap to the extent of about 
4,000 cubic yards. As there was some wash above the rip-rap 
before by storms of less magnitude, it was considered advisable, 
when repairing the bank, to place slope paving on the bank to 
grade 18, to protect it in the future. Four hundred linear feet of 
filling and paving have been placed to date. 

The floor of the gate-house at the outlet was destroyed, and 
the joints of the masonry started during the same storm. 

On account of the possibility of greater damage being done by 
some future storm, it is advisable to extend the sea wall, now 
building, for a short distance on the opposite side of the gate- 
house, to allow for filling on all sides of the foundation, except 
the face, and insure the stability of it in the future. 

There are several necessary things about the island that should 
be done before the work of extending the reservoir is completed. 

The bluff on the north-easterly side of the island, which is 
over 100 feet in height, washes and furrows badly each year, 
carrying large quantities of material into the water. Now, that 
the sea wall is built ou this side of the island, with a fill behind 
it to an established grade, it will be necessary to grade the bluff 
to such a slope that a sod can be grown on it to protect it from 
the action of the rains and frost, or the grade of the filling at its 
base cannot be maintained, and will always present an unsightly 
appearance. 

A portion of the rip-rap around the island should be relaid as 
the action of the ice, together with the storms, has moved it so 
much in places that the ballast beneath it is liable to be washed, 
and endanger the embankment in which the outfall sewer is built. 

The wharf at the island should be extended about forty-five 
feet, and a channel dredged from it to deep water. The depart- 
ment boat cannot land at the wharf if the water is below half-tide. 
A run should also be built alongside the wharf, so the small boat 
can be launched under any conditions of weather. The old boat 
and house for same were carried away by the storm of Novem- 
ber 27, 1898. 



Street Department — Sewer, Division. 1T5 

The automatic tide gauge should be set up at the wharf, so that 
a continuous and correct record of the height of the tide can be 
preserved. Aside from the need of it in connection with the 
works, its usefulness is demonstrated by the repeated requests for 
such information by the different city departments and others. 

A registering gauge should also be placed at the east end of 
the tunnel to obtain data in regard to the waves that occur there, 
so that the same may be determined if possible. 

The lack of facilities for keeping the outfall sewer clean has 
long been felt, and I would recommend laying a six-inch water 
pipe from the gate-house to the connection chamber, with hydrants 
on it, so that salt water may be used for the purpose. 

The old stable, which should have been replaced long ago, 
cannot be used with economy any longer. Aside from its tumble- 
down condition, it will not properly accommodate the horses, and 
there is no chance to get the wagons under cover. A new stable 
should be built, with proper accommodations and in keeping with 
the other buildings on the island. 

During the summer season, the island is becoming quite a 
favorite place for people to visit in carriages and on bicycles, not 
only to see the work, but to get the sea breezes and the fine view 
of the harbor that may be had from the top of the hill. If the 
proposed boulevard in Quincy and Squantum becomes a fact, the 
number will increase, and a driveway around the island and to 
the top of the hill, with the grounds about the reservoir graded 
in proper shape, would greatly add to the appearance of the 
plant and the pleasure of the public. 

I think it advisable at this time to consider the necessity of 
increasing the capacity of the reservoirs beyond the limits of the 
present contracts, in the near future. If the proposed design for 
a high level sewer is adopted, and constructed by the State, it 
will be several years before it will be in operation, and the increase 
in the amount of sewage received before these works are com- 
pleted may necessitate storage capacity equal to the capacity of 
the tunnel. 

Stoxy Brook. 

During the past year, extensive studies have been made of 
what is known as the Stony brook drainage area. The district 
has been thoroughly surveyed, and a complete system of drainage 
for this area designed. This is the largest drainage area in the 
city of Boston, and should be completed as soon as possible. 

Financial Statement. 

Sewer assessments have been made by this division for the 
year ending January 31, 1899, in accordance with chapter 402 of 
the Acts of 1892, and amendments thereto, to the amount of 
$147,335.37, and the bills have been deposited for collection with 
the City Collector. 

Bills for sewer assessments, amounting to $759.87, have also 
been deposited for collection, representing those estates assessed 



176 City Document No. 35. 

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 collection, 
$148,095.24. 

There remain on the books of this division, at 5 per cent, 
interest, $24,548.37, 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 18.5 per cent, of the total 
assessments made under those Acts. Entrance fees to the 
amount of $3,350.06 have been collected from estates upon which 
no sewer assessment was ever paid, in accordance with chapter 38, 
section 10, of the Revised Ordinances. 

Three thousand and fifty-eight permits have been issued to 
licensed drain-layers to make 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, in accord- 
ance with the provisions of chapter 38, section 6, of the Revised 
Ordinances. 

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

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE STREET CLEANING DIVISION. 



921 Tremont Building, 
Boston, February 1, 1899. 
Mr. Ben j. W. Wells, 

Superintendent of Streets, City Hall, Boston : 

Sir, — In submitting the annual report of the Street Cleaning 
Division of the Street Department for the year ending January 31, 
1899, I beg leave to call your attention to some few features of last 
year's work, which deserve more than a perfunctory notice. 

Tabulated statements and even carefully computed totals are not 
always exhaustively descriptive of work done; a better proof of 
which cannot be found in this report than in those figures which 
appear to show the operations of the hand sweeping force in Dis- 
trict 10, the West and the North End sections of this city. 

Hand sweeping, or what may be called the bag-carrier system, 
was introduced in this city for the first time about the middle of last 
September and has been continued with unqualified success up to 
the present. Its tentative period, if, indeed, it was ever deemed an 
experiment, has passed; if it was on trial the verdict is in its favor. 
No figures of cost, nor tables of mileage, can tell its story. The 
results are clean streets for the first time in that section of the city 
covered by this force. The streets, which under the old system of 
machine sweeping were cleaned but three or four times a week, and 
which it was once declared impossible, even with large forces of 
men and teams, to keep free from dirt for any length of time, are 
now being constantly cared for from seven till five o'clock every work- 
ing day of the year. General, and almost absolute cleanliness, is the 
result. It is only a question of time and larger appropriations, when 
hand sweeping will be so extended as to embrace at least the entire 
business section of the city; and it is simply in recognition of the 
splendid results of the work of this system that I urgently recommend 
its extension, and that you ask for more money for this division. 

The work of flushing asphalt streets in the Back Bay District was 
not of sufficient magnitude to warrant an assurance of its success as 
an economical method of street cleaning in this city; and this is, in a 
great measure, attributable to the fact that the conditions which make 
it such in foreign cities, do not exist here. The hydrants, which are 
a prime factor in this scheme of flushing in continental cities, are so 
located and constructed as to contribute to the work of the street

cleaners; they are a part of the street cleaning plant; whereas, in 
our city, they are placed and fashioned for the sole use and pur- 
poses of our Eire Department. Under existing conditions, I would 
not care to recommend flushing on a large scale. 

In the matter of recommendations for the future, which I now 
make agreeably to your request, in addition to that of a large appro- 
priation for the extension of the hand-sweeping system, I respect- 
fully but earnestly remind you of the need of new and more stable 
room. All our stables are old, some of them dilapidated and none 
of them in first-class condition. It will cost a few thousand dollars 
to put them in good repair. Provision should be made towards 
acquiring new quarters for our South Boston force, as it seems prob- 
able that the stables now occupied by us at the corner of Vale and 
Burnham streets must soon be vacated. It is to be hoped also that 
the idea of establishing a force in East Boston will be realized. It 
may be well to mention in connection with this subject, that my 
stable equipments are as complete as the appropriation would allow. 
All the street carts have been put in first class condition, and are, 
for all my purposes, as good as new, — the equal of any lot of carts 
in any department. 

The patrol system force of this division has never had suitable 
accommodations. Their old station at the foot of Oliver street was 
unfit, unsanitary and not safe. At the old Public Library building, 
where I succeeded in locating them towards the close of the year, 
they have large rooms, plenty of light and air and many of the 
modern improvements. 

I do not like to close this annual report until I have paid my 
tribute of praise to all the men who have helped to make this a prom- 
inent year in the history of this division. My assistants in the 
office have always and quickly responded to every suggestion; the 
foremen have worked as a unit and in harmony; the humblest 
laborer has done his duty; and I have no hesitation in declaring 
that the Street Cleaning Division force is a well organized and dis- 
ciplined body. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joshua Atwood, 3d, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Note. — The district covered by the Hand Sweeping Force represents an area of 
188,166 square yards of granite and asphalt pavement. At first glance, it would appear 
that, in the matter of mileage this year's work suffers in comparison with that of 
former years, but it must be borne in mind that no mileage is set against the work of 
the Hand Sweeping Force, for the reason that the streets in this district are being 
cleaned from morning till evening, every street being cleaned many times a day ; 
whereas, those streets in districts covered by the sweeping machine forces are never 
swept more than once a day.

APPENDIX G. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE STREET WATERING DIVISION. 



440 and 441 Teemont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1899. 

Me. 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, 1899. 

Street watering commenced this season on April 10 and 
ended November 24, and was carried on in accordance with 
chapter 419 of the Acts of 1897. The late start was due to 
the unsettled policy of street watering to be pursued during 
the year. The season was about the average in weather 
conditions. Much difficulty was experienced during open 
weather in December, January and February. The thermom- 
eter was usually so low during these months that watering 
could not safely be attempted. So disagreeable were the 
conditions during January of this year that carts were used 
in watering on the 21st, 22d, 23d and 24th on the broad 
thoroughfares of the city proper. They were operated from 
9 A.M. until 3.30 P.M., but it must be understood that the 
temperature was favorable, registering at least 38°. The 
purpose of the division in the future will be to provide for 
such conditions, notwithstanding the inconvenience of turn- 
ing on and off the water and equipping standpipes. 

During the season 409.95 miles of streets were watered by 
this Division. This is an increase of 103.82 miles of streets 
over last year, due almost entirely to the assumption of the 
care of paved streets. The new work entailed much extra 
labor upon the supervising force in the measuring of routes, 
locating stand-pipes, and incidental details. 

Street watering now extends throughout every section of 
the city. Practically every accepted street which was accessi- 



Street Department — Street Watering Division. 237 

ble and the roadbed, in condition was watered. The complete- 
ness and thoroughness of the work is unequalled anywhere 
in this country. Nearly all of the streets within a radius of 
four miles of City Hall were watered four times daily ; and 
some five and six times ; those outside that limit twice, and 
the main thoroughfares outside three and four times, making 
a very satisfactory service. The carts used in the work were 
all of modern manufacture. 

The Car Sprinkler. 

The car sprinkler proved after trial that it would be a 
satisfactory addition to our street watering force. The 
American Car Sprinkler Company furnished the car for the 
test free of charge, and the only expense incurred was that for 
labor, freight and insurance. The experiment extended from 
June 15 to the end of the season. From close observation 
the following appears to be the utmost daily working capac- 
ity of the car : 



Macadam or asphalt streets, 
Paved streets, 


3.66 miles 
5.49 " 


6 sprinklings 
4 " 


Water capacity of car, 
Number of loads required, 




2,000 gallons 
42 loads 



To do the above work it is assumed that hydrants are 
conveniently located, that is, about 4,500 feet apart. In 
treating macadam or asphalt streets, six sprinklings are 
necessary. A fifty-foot roadway is the extreme width of a 
street which can be taken care of by the car ; anything wider 
will be left dry near the gutter. The car does its best work 
on paved streets, and can be worked to the best advantage 
in the outlying sections. One car does the work of three 
and one-half ordinary watering carts. 

Assessments. 

As an introduction to the subject of assessments it may 
be interesting to review briefly the past experience of the 
department in street watering service. 

Previous to this year the expense of watering macadam 
streets has been paid for from the general tax levy. Paved 
streets were watered at the expense of the abutter, that 
is, certain districts in paved street sections of the city 
were given to responsible street watering contractors, who 
rendered service upon agreements entered into with the 
abutters. This method of watering paved streets was 



238 City Document No. 35. 

objectionable for two reasons : First — The service was not 
compulsory. Second — The expense was borne by the abutters 
while on macadam streets the abutters received street water- 
ing free of charge. 

The effect of the non-compulsory, subscription method of 
watering paved streets is apparent when it is noted that only 
one-half of our paved streets were watered under that sys- 
tem. Many abutters by refusing the service, although their 
neighbors might be willing, prevented the watering of the 
street, or if they did not prevent it obtained a service the 
expense of which they did not share. A great many of the 
citizens objected to the subscription plan because it did not 
appear to them equitable that the cost of watering macadam 
streets should be borne by the city, and the expense of water- 
ing paved streets be paid for directly by them. 

The necessary extension of the service in the macadam 
sections has of late years made the question of the annual 
appropriation a serious one. With the necessary increased 
demands of the large departments upon the money yearly 
available for municipal purposes the Street Department has 
been curtailed, and with its other divisions the Street Water- 
ing Division was affected, the appropriation being reduced 
from 1100,000 to $70,000. This latter sum was becoming 
more and more inadequate with the growth of the city, and 
with the paved street question, it became desirable that the 
whole matter be considered as a new proposition. 

The important question involved in the solution of the 
problem was, how should money for the expense of first-class 
service be provided? The sum annually available from gen- 
eral taxation was insufficient for the increasing needs of the 
macadam streets. No proof was needed to show that the 
watering of paved streets could not be assumed and the 
expense paid for by the city out of the general tax levy. It 
was also recalled that previous to 1891 the expense of water- 
ing macadam streets was in the main borne directly by the 
abutters. It is quite true that -the Paving Division 'prior to 
1891 always devoted a part of its appropriation to street 
watering, but this service was not general and only pretended 
to care for newly surfaced macadam streets. The Paving 
Division hardly employed more than one watering cart in 
each district. 

While other cities of the United States have never 
watered their streets as extensively as Boston, yet what 
they have done has been generally at the expense of the 
abutters, on the principle, it is presumed, that street watering 
is a special benefit to property and should be paid for 



Street Department — Street Watering Division. 239 

by them according as they receive the advantage, and not 
from general taxation. In other words watering by subscrip- 
tion or assessment has been the rule, and Boston has simply 
been, in part, an exception. Investigation in other cities 
has shown that street watering, primarily, has been consid- 
ered a matter resting with the abutters as to its performance, 
and the unsatisfactory method of subscriptions to private 
individuals for the work has wholly or in part prevailed. 
When municipalities have undertaken the work they have not 
relieved the abutter of his duty to pay for the service. Their 
interest at all times has been simply to prevent exorbitant 
charges to the abutters, and when assuming the work to do 
it at the least possible cost. 

In determining assessments for street watering the divi- 
sion was governed by chapter 419 of the Acts of 1897, 
an act applying to the watering of streets in the cities 
of the Commonwealth. Under the authority of this 
act the Superintendent of Streets by direction of the city 
government proceeded to water all accepted streets, and 
assess the expense of the same upon the abutter according to 
the linear foot of frontage of his estate. 

It was deemed proper that the area assessed be limited to 
that within four miles south, and three miles north of 
City Hall. The section outside of the limits named was paid 
for out of the general appropriation, and the service furnished 
was of necessity not as complete as within the assessed 
district. 

In ascertaining the cost of the assessment the division 
proceeded upon the basis of first-class service, and the 
work was outlined with that purpose constantly in mind. 
The assessment of five cents per linear foot of frontage of 
estates was found to be the figure at which the work could 
be done. This figure was sufficient, and abutters upon paved 
streets have been agreeably surprised at their watering charge 
for a season — lower in many instances than what they used 
to pay a month to private contractors. There is no question 
that the experience of last season shows the wisdom of 
watering by assessment. The charge was small, and very 
little burden upon the taxpayers. 

The levying of the assessment involved a large amount of 
detail work, which was performed in connection with the 
sewer assessment and under the same supervision. 

The watering of streets is a matter of much concern to our 
citizens. It is a necessity involving the health and comfort 
of the people. It is a great benefit to the residential portions 
of the city, and a little attention to the subject will show that 



240 City Document No. 35. 

even to unimproved property it lias its advantage in that the 
street is kept in condition longer by reason of the service. 
The relation of a well kept roadbed to the value of abut- 
ting property, whether improved or unimproved, is too well 
known to need comment. And the fact that street watering 
preserves the surface of streets, the maintenance of which is 
paid for from the general taxation, necessarily benefits all 
taxpayers. Hence the objection that unimproved property 
receives no benefit from street watering is upon examination 
of the question not sustained. 

The legality of the street watering act is about to be tested 
before the Supreme Court of this State in the case of Joshua 
M. Sears vs. Board of Aldermen and the Superintendent of 
Streets of the City of Boston, in a writ of certiorari to quash 
alleged illegal assessments. Two questions are involved in 
the case. (1) The constitutionality of the act as a method 
of taxation by assessment. (2) The constitutionality of the 
mode of assessment. 

The following sums have been expended for street watering 
during the past eight (8) years : 



1891 $104,263 62 

1892 94,507 80 

1893 99,430 16 

1894 87,169 08 



1895 $76,424 70 

1896 71,211 81 

1897 78,736 72 

1898 138,728 57 



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, nor was it paid last year, and for the purpose of comparison it 
has been omitted from the expenditures of 1897 given above. In 1898 
the care of paved streets and the increased frequency of watering mac- 
adam streets almost doubled the amount of work and accounts for the 
increased cost. The paved streets were watered in previous years by 
the subscription method at the expense of the abutter. 

Very respectfully, 

THOS. J. FlNNERAN, 

Deputy Superintendent.

The above summary indicates the completeness of the 
work done by the division. The number of carts was in- 
creased from 116 to 197, and the miles of streets from 
306.13 to 409.95, an increase of 81 in the number of carts, 
and an increase of 103.82 miles of streets. This increase 
in a great measure was due to the care of paved streets, 
which in the past have been watered by, and at the election 
of, the abutters.

APPENDIX H. 



City of Boston, Engineering Department, 

50 City Hall, February 1, 1899, 

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

Sir, — I herewith submit the following report of the work 
done under my direction for the Street Department during 
the year 1898. 

The work covers the same ground as heretofore, namely, the 
supervision of the construction of assessment streets, boule- 
vards, street paving and consideration and reports upon vari- 
ous questions which arise concerning the work. 

The repairs upon asphalt pavement have been supervised, 
and a table is annexed giving the amount of repairs and the 
cost in detail on all asphalt pavement upon which the main- 
tenance guaranty has expired. The table showing details of 
all asphalt streets in the city has been corrected to date. 

On Columbus-avenue extension the work has been in 
progress throughout the year, and the avenue was so far com- 
pleted as to be in use in December. 

Columbia road construction has been in progress during 
the year. The first section extending from Blue Hill avenue 
to Stanwood street has been completed, and the prospect is 
good that the work will be finished to Edward Everett 
square in the time allowed in the two remaining contracts, 
on or before July 1, 1899. No work has been done on the 
bridge at the crossing of the New York, New Haven & 
Hartford Railroad. 

The filling done during the year, other than that done by 
the Park Department, has been at the foot of Mercer street 
and along Ninth street. About 21,000 cubic yards of earth 
have been deposited at the foot of Mercer street under several 
small contracts, the material having been brought from the 
hills of South Boston. 

On October 25, 1898, a contract was made with Simon J. 
Donovan for filling that portion of Columbia road between 
Atlantic and I streets. Under this contract 16,267 cubic 
yards have been deposited. 



244 City Document No. 35. 

On December 28, another contract was made with Mr. 
Donovan for filling the section of the roacl between Mercer 
and Mt. Vernon streets, and building an extension of the 
culvert under the railroad. A small amount of filling has 
been done and work begun on the culvert. 

On October 10, 1898, a contract was made with Dennis 
F. O'Connell for building the abutments and pier of the 
bridge to carry Columbia road over the New York, New 
Haven & Hartford Railroad, and also over the new Columbia 
avenue. The foundations and about one-half of the stone 
masonry have been built and the excavation made for the 
pier. 

Ipswich Street. 

On account of the laying out of this street across the 
Fens the following structures were required: 

A retaining-wall on the northerly line of the street, which 
line was also the southerly line of the location of the Boston 
and Albany Railroad, for a length of 530 feet easterly from 
the easterly line of the Fens. 

A bridge over the Fens waterway and a bridge to carry 
the park driveway in Charlesgate West over Ipswich street. 
All the masonry work in these structures was built under a 
contract with Messrs. Holbrook, Cabot and Daly, dated 
November 29, 1897, and the work was completed on Sep- 
tember 13, 1898, at a total cost of 140,528.99. 

The retaining-wall along the railroad serves to support the 
street, and has a height above the railroad varying from 1 foot 
6 inches to 6 feet and a length of 530 feet. It is a rubble 
wall with a cut coping 2 feet wide by 1 foot 6 inches high. 
Owing to the small height of this wall no piles were used, the 
foundation extending only 4 feet below the grade of the 
railroad. 

The bridge over the waterway, so far as the masonry is 
concerned, is an extension of the abutments and piers of the 
bridge on the railroad. The foundation consists of a pile 
and timber platform extending the full width of the water- 
way and abutments, the upstream end being protected by a 
line of 4-inch sheet piling. The platform is at grade — 0.5 and 
the tops of the piers are at grade 12.25. There are two 
piers each 3 feet wide and three openings for the waterway 
each 17 feet wide. A supplementary agreement was made 
with the contractors for the masonry for building the super- 
structure of this bridge except the railing. The bridge is 
built of steel beams of depths varying, to conform to the 
crown of the roadway, from 10 inches in the gutter to 



Street Department — Engineering Division. 245 

20 inches on the outer lines of the bridge ; they are spaced 
from 2 feet to 3 feet 2 inches apart ; the spaces between the 
beams and above them to within 2i inches of the surface of 
the street are filled with Portland cement concrete ; sheets 
of expanded metal are imbedded in the concrete 2 inches 
above the under surface, this surface being flush with the 
bottoms of the beams ; on top of the concrete an asphalt 
covering was laid 2i inches thick. There is a sidewalk 8 
feet in width on the southerly side of the bridge, but none on 
the northerly side, a curb being placed on this side one foot 
from the outer line. The depth of the bridge is 20 inches on 
the outside lines, 19 inches at the sidewalk curb and 14 
inches in the gutter. The surface of the bridge is 61 feet 
in length by 50 feet in width. 

For building the bridge on Charlesgate West it was nec- 
essary to remove a portion of the old retaining wall on the 
easterly line of the Parkway, and the whole of the wall on 
the westerly line of the Parkway down to the sub-grade of 
Ipswich street, excavate the earth within the lines of the new 
street and the bridge abutment, build a new face on the back 
of the abutment . of the bridge over the railroad and build 
a new abutment on the southerly line of the new street. 
The Parkway was originally graded by filling with coarse 
gravel from the original grade of the flats, which was about 
grade 2, to grade 34. Borings taken after the required 
excavation was made, showed that the soft mud underneath 
the filling, which previous to the filling was 14 feet in depth, 
had been either compressed or displaced so that the filling 
extended down to grade — 6. 

Great difficulty was experienced in driving the piles for 
the abutment on account of the character of the filling ; 
where the attempt was made to drive all of the piles called 
for by the plan it is probable that not more than one-half 
of them reached the natural hard bottom which was at grade 
— 28. The piles were driven in a trench excavated to grade 
4 or about 10 feet below the grade of the ground in front of 
the abutment and about 26 feet below the undisturbed sur- 
face in the rear of the abutment. Many of the piles were 
broken in driving, and some that were drawn up after being 
driven were found crippled and broomed at the points. A 
water jet was tried, but the filling was so coarse that the jet 
had no effect upon it ; iron shoes were used on the piles, but 
still they were crippled ; finally only every alternate pile was 
driven and these seemed to reach hard bottom and to so 
compact the material that no more piles could be driven. 
The piles were spaced, according to the plan, 2 feet apart 



246 City Document No. 35. 

on centres in each direction, there being 9 piles in each row 
at right angles to the face of the abutment; 329 piles were 
driven out of 621 called for by the plan. No settlement has 
been detected in the masonry. It is probable that the great 
weight of the filling 38 feet in depth which has rested on the 
mud for the past 15 years has so consolidated it that it is 
able to support the masonry with the help of a smaller 
number of piles than would otherwise be necessary. 

The abutment is 106 feet in length at the ground line and 
has a retaining or wing-wall returned on the westerly line of 
the Parkway, a distance of 35 feet, for the purpose of pre- 
venting the filling on the Parkway from encroaching on the 
street. The easterly end of the abutment is connected with 
the old retaining-wall. The foundation is 18 feet wide, pro- 
jecting at the bottom 6 feet 6 inches in front of the exposed 
face of the abutment. The piles were cut off 1 foot above 
the bottom of the trench or at grade 5. The masonry from 
grade 4 to grade 11 was of American cement concrete com- 
posed of 1 part cement, 2 parts of sand and 5 parts of gravel. 
The concrete had a width on top of 14 feet 8 inches, the 
front line being 3 feet 2 inches in front of the exposed face 
of the wall. On this was laid a footing course of granite 
2 feet thick and 13 feet wide, projecting 2 feet in front of 
the wall above it. 

The masonry above the footing course is of quarry-faced 
Rockport granite laid in horizontal courses in American 
cement mortar with 1-inch joints. The back of the old 
abutment of the bridge over the railroad was faced with 
quarry-faced ashlar, by cutting away the backing of the two 
lower courses sufficiently to allow laying two courses of 
stretchers above the old foundation ; the lower course was 
bolted to the backing of the same course by two li-inch bolts 
to each stone and this course and the next two above it were 
clamped to the old work by two 2-inch wrought iron clamps 
to each stone. The bridge seat courses of both abutments 
are of cut stone 2 feet rise and 5 feet wide ; these are sur- 
mounted by cut stone parapets, the tops of which conform to 
the shape of the roadway and walks. Ballast of quarry 
chips was placed in the rear of the abutment. 

A temporary wooden bridge was erected to carry the park 
drive over the street at a cost of 1565.57, and the drive was 
opened to travel on July 13. 

On July 25, 1898, a contract was made with the James 
Russell Boiler Works Company for building iron fences on 
each side of Ipswich street across the Fens. On the waterway 
bridge there is a railing 3 feet 6 inches high of three 2-inch 



Street Department — Engineering Division. 247 

wrought iron pipes with cast iron posts ; the remainder of 
the fence consists of two rails of 2^-inch X '2-inch wrought 
iron posts of 2£-inch X 1-inch wrought iron set in cast iron 
bases, and palings of f -inch round, iron spaced. 4i inches apart ; 
the fence is 6 feet high. The work was completed on No- 
vember 7, at a cost of $889. 

The table showing lengths and areas of paving on accepted, 
streets and public alleys has been brought up to February 1, 
1899. 

Street paving has been supervised in all cases where 
requested. All paving laid on the before-mentioned avenues 
is included in the quantities given. All granite block pav- 
ing on concrete base has been laid with pitch and pebble 
joints except 1,702 square yards which on account of un- 
favorable weather, was laid temporarily with gravel joints. 

Granite block pavement on a concrete base, laid with 
pitch and pebble joints, 39,789 square yards. 

Granite block pavement on a gravel base, laid with pitch 
and pebble joints, 2,676 square yards. 

Granite block pavement on a concrete base, laid with 
gravel joints (temporarily), 1,702 square yards. 

Granite block pavement on a gravel base, laid with gravel 
joints, 37,030 square yards. 

Trinidad lake asphalt, with a binder course of asphaltic 
cement concrete, on an American cement concrete base, 
■5,166 square yards, at an average cost of about $3.00 per 
square yard. 

Sicilian rock asphalt on an American cement concrete base, 
2,804 square yards, at an average cost of about 13.00 per 
square yard. 

Asphaltina, on an American Portland cement concrete 
base, 569 square yards, at a cost of $2.93 per square yard. 

The cost per square yard of asphalt given above does not 
include the cost of preparing roadbed, except in the case of 
Asphaltina pavement, the price for which includes all work. 
All asphalt is laid with a maintenance guaranty for five 
years, except that Public Alley No. 437 is laid with a 
guaranty for ten years. 

Edgestone set, 85,818 linear feet; gutter paving laid, 
23,035 square yards; brick sidewalks laid, 27,883 square 
yards ; crushed stone sidewalks constructed, 25,390 square 
yards. 

Artificial stone sidewalks, 37,310 square feet; nagging 
crosswalks laid, 5,686 square yards; macadam surface (6 
inches), 44,600 square yards ; Telford (8 inches) macadam 
(4 inches), 33,900 square yards.

APPENDIX I. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF SMOKE INSPECTOR. 



64 Pemberton Square, Boston, February 1, 1899. 
Benj. W. Wells, Esq., Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I herewith submit a report of the work per- 
formed under chapter 389, Acts of 1895, chapter 175, Acts 
of 1897, and section 99, chapter 47, Revised Ordinances 1898, 
relative to the smoke nuisance in this city. 

During the past year the coal market has been in a some- 
what unsettled condition, due to various causes, and notwith- 
standing the fact that large quantities of low grade bitumi- 
nous coals were used from time to time, considerable success 
was met with in the abatement of the smoke nuisance under 
the present statute law. 

This has been accomplished, not alone by the rigid enforce- 
ment of the ordinance relating to the equipment of new 
boilers, but by the activity on the part of the observers in 
reporting chimneys emitting smoke from time to time, not 
always in violation of the law, but sufficient to warrant the 
owner's attention being called to it. These reports or com- 
plaints when investigated were found in many cases to be 
due to the coal, while others were due to carelessness on the 
part of those in charge. While we have been obliged at 
times to treat owners of steam plants with considerable 
leniency, they have always shown a willingness to co-operate 
with the department in the abatement of the nuisance. 

The result of these complaints from the observers also 
show that the smoke nuisance to-day is enlisting the attention 
of steam users to such an extent that many of them keep 
better informed of the condition of their chimney, as from 
time to time I found the object of my visit already occupying 
their attention. 

Since August, 1894, the department in co-operation with 
the Building Department has been enforcing section 99, 
chapter 3, Revised Ordinances 1892 (section 99, chapter 47, 
Revised Ordinances 1898), whereby all boilers using 



Street Department — Smoke Inspection. 269 

bituminous coal for the purpose of generating steam must be 
provided with a smoke consuming device. The legality of 
the ordinance was tested before the Board of Appeal in 
September, 1897, since which time it has been embodied in 
the application for a permit. During the past year there have 
been received from the office of the Building Commissioner, 
385 notices of applications, 330 agreeing to burn hard coal 
and 33 adopting the use of smoke consuming devices. A 
record is made of every application, giving street and 
number, and kind of fuel or device used. At the close of 
this year 1,352 applications have been acted upon, and 1,134 
applicants have signed to burn smokeless fuel. 

Previous to August, 1894, boilers had been installed in 
buildings for heating purposes, equipped with grates to burn 
hard coal, but after a time bituminous coal was adopted, thus 
creating a smoke nuisance. Since the enforcement of this 
ordinance these conditions have been changed, so that to-day 
they do not practically exist, as frequent visits are made to 
plants where it is -possible to burn soft coal. Since October, 
136 boiler plants which are operated only during the cold 
weather were visited, and several cases were found violating 
the conditions of' their permit, but their attention being called 
to it, they immediately complied with the requirements of 
the ordinance. 

As the majority of these boilers are so constructed that 
they cannot be equipped with the smoke consuming devices 
at present in use in this city, they will be obliged to continue 
the use of smokeless fuels, which will provide against any 
future smoke nuisances from this class of boilers. 

Sixteen complaints were received and satisfactorily ad- 
justed, as shown in reports on file. 

One hundred and seventy-one short observations of one 
and two firings, and thirty-five long observations lasting from 
two to nine hours were taken on various chimneys through- 
out the city ; eleven of these latter observations were made 
at the request of owners of steam plants, who having equipped 
their boiler or boilers with a smoke consuming device desired 
the city to inform them if the same was acceptable and com- 
plying with the law ; these tests take from five to seven days 
to complete, reports of which are on file. 

The importations of Nova Scotia coal recorded at the port 
of Boston for the year ending January 31, 1899, shows 20,247 
tons as against 41,730 tons for the year ending January 31, 
1898, very little, if any, of which was used within the city 
limits.
