to Laying Out and Constructing Highways in the City of 
Boston." (Chap. 478.) Under this Act the loan is inside 
the debt limit. From this appropriation all street and sew- 
erage works construction in highways laid out previous 
to July 17, .1900, may be built. On account of the date of 
its acceptance by the City Council (December 29, 1900) no 
expenditures were incurred in 1900. The amount appro- 
priated under this Act was $1,300,001. 

Thus the expenditures under the several appropriations of 
the year 1899 were as follows : 

From Income of the City Raised by Taxes.

From the moneys provided, as shown in the preceding 
schedule, the maintenance force of the Department has been 
permanently and constantly employed during the year, and 
large amounts of work have been performed by contract, as 
required by the provisions of many of the Acts providing 
loans for expenditure by this Department. 

Specific features of the work are referred to under the 
headings which follow, and the work of the Divisions is fully 
shown in the Appendices attached to this report. 

Surety Bonds. 
Much difficulty has in the past been experienced by the 
Law Department in protecting the City against loss, which 
it has sustained at the hands of those holding permits from 
this Department, guaranteed by personal sureties, for doing 
work in, or occupying the streets. Sureties were found to 
have disposed of property of which they were possessed when 
offering themselves as guarantees upon these bonds ; and, 
because of this oft occurring condition, the Department 
decided to refuse all personal sureties and to accept only the 
guarantee of the surety companies authorized to do business 
in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, fourteen in number. 

The Street Department Districts. 
Early in the year the ten districts into which the City is 



6 City Document No. 38. 

divided for the purpose of this Department, were re-estab- 
lished as follows :

B. T. Wheeler, 
Superintendent of Streets. 

The Eight-Hour Law. 

The eight-hour law went into operation a few weeks only- 
previous to the present financial year, and has been strictly 
complied with. The classes of labor included within the 
law, not working upon an eight-hour basis at the beginning 
of the year, have been so established. 

The operation of the law has no doubt been a benefit to 
the employees of the Department, but the theory that as 
much work would be performed by the laborer in eight hours 
under the present system as was formerly done in nine has 
been exploded* The sum necessary to accomplish the. work 
performed by this Department has been increased, because 
of the requirements of the law, bv an amount estimated at 
$168,000 for the year. 

Property in East Boston. 

A purchase of a lot of land on Chelsea street, East 
Boston, was made previous to my incumbency of this office, 
and a stable designed to be placed upon it. 

While this property was upon the . water front it had no 
wharf facilities and no opportunity for any, without the 
expenditure of large sums of money, the land, except for a 
small filled area at its front, being an expanse of tidal flats. 

This property has been abandoned by the Department, 
and a wharf property, having deep water frontage and dock- 
ing facilities, situated much nearer the central portion of the 
district, has been leased for a term of years, together with a 
large stable thereon ; and on this property the Department 
has constructed sheds and offices. It now has excellent 
facilities thereon for the Paving, Sewer, Sanitary, and Street 
Cleaning Divisions. 

West End Yard and Stables. 
An urgent need of the Department is the construction of 
new stables at the North Grove-street Yard. The Board of 
Health and the Sanitary, Sewer and Street Cleaning Divi- 
sions of this Department occupy old brick buildings, wooden 
sheds, leantos and cabins, scattered over the yard, none of 
them fit for the purposes for which they are used. Notwith- 
standing the fact that there are more horses kept in this yard 
than in any other, the stable facilities are entirely inadequate, 



Stebet Department. 9 

and we lose much horse service annually, from the fact that 
the stables are ill-constructed, ill-lighted, ill-ventilated and 
generally unsanitary. To provide proper storage, office-room, 
stable room and other facilities for the use of this Department 
as well as the Board of Health, a suitable building for the 
use of- all should be erected, and I believe there is no greater 
need in the public service in the City to-day. This has been 
previously recommended by me, and an item of $160,000 was 
last year placed in a loan bill for this purpose, but failed of 
passage. 

Smoke Nuisance. 

Much difficulty is encountered in effectively suppressing the 
smoke nuisance in the City, because of the inadequacy of the 
provisions of the present law, which now allows the emission 
of dark smoke for five minutes continuously. An enforcement 
of the law does not suppress the nuisance, but it has been at- 
tempted to confine it within the limits of the law as far as 
possible. 

Employment of LaboPw 

The report of the Civil Service Clerk, showing the classi- 
fication of the employees of the Department and the transfers 
and requisitions made for the several Divisions of the Depart- 
ment, will be found in Appendix K. 



BRIDGE DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
Maintenance. Specials. 

$138,580.56. $6,470.37. 

The Bridge Division has made more than usually exten- 
sive repairs to the floors and decks of the bridges in its care. 

Especial attention has been given to scraping and painting 
the iron-work underneath those bridges spanning railroad 
tracks, which have been long neglected, and where the gases 
from locomotives bring about rapid deterioration. 

Financial provision was made at the request of this 
Department for repairs to the piers and structures of several 
tide-water bridges, but much of this work has been prevented, 
owing to the attitude of the Harbor and Land Commissioners, 
as they refused to issue permits in Fort Point channel, pend- 
ing action on the widening of the water-ways. 

Plans are in preparation for the construction of a stable 
and headquarters for the South District, upon the lot acquired 
by exchange with the N. Y., N. H. & H. Railroad Company 
on Broadway and Dorchester avenue, South Boston. 



10 City Document No. 38. 

FERRY DIVISION. 

Expenditures. Receipts. 

Maintenance. $166,830.88. 

8236,999.91. Traffic. 

Specials. 12,243,877 foot passengers. 

$104,973.55. 931,853 teams. 

The Ferry Division has added to its service two new propel- 
ler boats, thus enabling it to keep one additional boat in com- 
mission during the year, and dispose of the old side wheeler 
boat " Winthrop," which has been in service since 1873. 

Plans have been prepared for a new head-house and coal 
elpvator at the South Ferry, East Boston side. The contract 
has been awarded, and work is under way on the coal-pocket, 
and the head-house will be constructed as soon as this is com- 
pleted. This has been arranged without the purchase of 
additional land. 

Extensive repairs have been made upon boats, engines, 
landings and buildings. 



PAVING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
Maintenance. Specials. 

$782,700.72 $1,155,631.11 

The Paving Division work has been rearranged ; an en- 
gineering corps has been established in the Division, anala- 
go.us to that in the Sewer Division, and all street construc- 
tion and repair is now directly under the control of the 
Division. 

Money is no longer provided from a loan inside the debt 
limit, in the reconstruction of streets, but additional appro- 
priation from the tax levy is made for such renewals and 
repairs. From the amount so provided the cost of all down- 
town paving and Back Bay asphalting has been paid. 

The maintenance appropriation has been largely expended 
in. an effort to bring the macadam streets, which constitute 
so large a portion of our street mileage, into a more satis- 
factory condition, and the work of construction of new 
streets laid out under Chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891 and 
the amendments thereto has rapidly progressed. Money is 
at hand and plans prepared for the practical completion of 
all streets now so laid out and ordered constructed during 
the coming year. 

The Division has charge of the maintenance and construc- 
tion of about 492 miles of streets. 



Stkeet Department. 11 

SANITARY DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
$609,664.67 

The Sanitary Division has increased the efficiency of its 
construction and repair-shops where most of the horse- 
shoeing and construction and repair of the vehicles and har- 
nesses of the Department is done. 

One new Barney dumping boat, costing $17,500 has been 
purchased and paid for from the maintenance appropriation. 

A loan has been provided for the establishment of a sani- 
tary and street cleaning yard in Dorchester, which will 
enable the Division to make the collection in this district in 
a much more satisfactory manner than under the present 
contract system. 



SEWER DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
Maintenance. Sewerage Works. Stony Brook Improvement. 

$362,060.24 $921,140.48 $198,481.35 

The Sewer Division has expended a large portion of the 
one million dollars, annually provided for sewer construction, 
upon large and important works, principally surface drains 
and in the construction of the necessary house and surface 
drainage required by law, in the "323" streets so called, 
under construction. 

The reservoirs of Moon Island have been practically com- 
pleted, the Dorchester Bay Pumping Station repairs and 
alterations to engines and boilers have been completed, and 
payments approximating $100,000, have been made upon the 
new engine No. 5 for this plant now in course of construction 
at Philadelphia. 

Stony brook conduit has been extended 1,018 running 
feet, and a supplementary channel constructed in Boylston 
avenue to Green street. 

Especial attention has been given to the care and cleaning 
of catch-basins, large numbers of which had been long 
neglected. 



STREET CLEANING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
$339,747.23 
The Street Cleaning Division has changed its methods, and 
furnished better results than formerly. 



12 City Document No. 38. 

The patrol system has been increased, and an attempt has 
been made to keep otherwise clean streets free from paper 
litter, by the establishment of a system of paper teams. 

The establishment of the Sanitary and Street Cleaning 
headquarters in Dorchester, before referred to, will enable 
the Division to give this district the increased service it has 
so long required. 

STREET WATERING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 

$174,742.45 

The Street Watering Division has endeavored to water all 
of the public streets during the year, an increase of 36i miles 
over the amount formerly watered. 

This work has been assessed under authority of Chapter 
366 of the Acts of 1899, but, during the coming year, in 
accordance with Your Honor's recommendation and the sub- 
sequent action of the City Government, the cost of street 
watering will be paid from the tax levy without assessment 
upon the abutter. 



BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE BRIDGES. 

Expenditures. 

' "$17,353.27 

Upon the Cambridge Commissioner, Mr. William J. Mar- 
vin, the responsibility for the Boston and Cambridge bridges 
has largely fallen, and to him should be accorded the credit 
for the excellent and economical manner in which they have 
been maintained. 



SUMMARY OF WORK DONE. 
Bridge Division. 

Overhauled and thoroughly repaired the following bridges, 
viz.: 

Allston, Blakemore street, Chelsea (north), Dover street, 
Massachusetts avenue (over the B. & A. R.R.), Mattapan,

APPENDIX A. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT 
OF THE BRIDGE DIVISION. 



927 and 928 Tremont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit my annual report of 
the expenditures, income, and operations of the Bridge 
Division of the Street Department for the financial year end- 
ing January 31, 1901. 

Embodied in this report will be found a detailed statement 
of the expenditures, a description of the work done on each 
bridge, also a tabulated account of the bridges supported 
wholly or in part by the City of Boston, widths of bridges 
and of draw openings, widths of roadways and sidewalks, 
character of pavements, number of openings made for navi- 
gation, etc. 

The total number of bridges in Boston is 155, not includ- 
ing culverts. Eight of these bridges, namely, Harvard, 
Canal, Prison Point, West Boston, Essex street, Cambridge 
street, Western avenue to Cambridge, and North Harvard 
street, all connecting Boston and Cambridge, are under the 
care of two commissioners, one of whom is appointed by 
the Mayor of the City of Boston, the other by the Mayor 
of the City of Cambridge. 

One hundred and fifteen bridges are supported wholly or 
in part by the City of Boston, 28 of which are tide-water 
bridges, provided with a draw, and 40 are wholly supported 
by railroad corporations. 

Of the tide-water bridges there are 13 of great importance, 
namely, Maiden and Mt. Washington avenue, operated by 
hand-power; the new Charlestown bridge, Summer street, 
Meridian street, Chelsea [North], Federal street, Dover street, 
all operated by electricity; Warren, Broadway, Congress 
street, L street, and Chelsea [South] , operated by steam-power. 



4 City Document No. 38. 

Work necessitating new floor beams, new deck, and 
sheathing, has been performed on Allston, Blakemore street, 
Massachusetts avenue, Mattapan, and Swett-street bridges. 
New sidewalks on Massachusetts avenue, Mattapan, West 
Fourth street, Dover street, Federal street, Beacon street, 
Milton, Maiden and Dartmouth-street bridges. 

Ironwork has been scraped and painted on Allston, Blake- 
more street, 'Massachusetts avenue, Chelsea [North] , Athens 
street, Gold street, Dartmouth street, Albany street, Brook- 
line avenue, and Neponset bridges. 

Bulkheads have been strengthened on Swett street, Linden 
Park street, and Williams-street bridges. 

Piers have been rebuilt, new floor laid in boiler-room, fences 
repaired and painted, machinery repaired, sidewalks redecked 
and concreted on Warren bridge. 

Draw has been widened, new piers, new wheel-guards, and 
new machinery, on Chelsea [North] bridge. 

Two shelter-houses have been erected on Summer-street 
bridge. 

Roadway has been repaved on Congress-street bridge. 

Summer street extension is now open to travel to South 
Boston, the bridges having been completed. 

Extensive repairs have been made on Winthrop bridge. 

Piers have been rebuilt, and the foundation of the old draw 
removed from Dover-street bridge. 

The bridge over Ipswich street, in the parkway, has been 
completed. 

The new Maiden bridge, between Charlestown and 
Everett, is being constructed, and will be completed before 
the close of the present year. 

If the proposed new Broadway bridge, now under consid- 
eration, is not constructed early in the coming year a special 
appropriation must be made to put the bridge in good condi- 
tion, and to rebuild the piers. 

Congress street and Mt. Washington-avenue bridges 
should be rebuilt. I would recommend that early action be 
taken, especially on Congress street. 

The machinery, piers, fender-guards, and water-ways of 
Meridian-street bridge, Chelsea [South] and Neponset bridges, 
are in need of extensive repairs. 

Many of the bridges are old, and require much reconstruc- 
tion, and as a large per cent, of the maintenance appropriation 
is required for the actual operation of the bridges, payment 
of draw-tenders, etc., I would recommend that where exten- 
sive repairs are needed, special appropriations should be 
made for that purpose. 



Stkeet Department — Bridge Division. 5 

The headquarters now occupied by this Division at South 
Boston have been acquired by the New York, New Haven 
& Hartford Railroad Company, and I would recommend 
that a building, to be used as a stable and storehouse, be 
erected on the lot owned by the City of Boston, on Broadway, 
near the corner of Dorchester avenue. 

Particular attention has been given to the painting of the 
ironwork under the floor of the different bridges.. 

The force employed on the tide-water bridges has been so 
assigned that there is now on duty at all times either the 
draw-tender or his first assistant. The work performed by 
the men in charge of these bridges has been generally satis- 
factory ; they have kept the piers and premises in good con- 
dition, and no accident has been reported that could have 
been attributed to their carelessness or negligence. 

The inland bridges have all been carefully looked after, 
and thoroughly swept each week. 

Care has been exercised in keeping on hand duplicate parts 
of gearing and machinery, and by so doing, due precautions 
have been taken against inconvenience to public travel and 
navigation. 

Respectfully yours, 

Walter Reed, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Street Department — Ferry Division. 39 



APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE FERRY DIVISION. 



North Ferry, East Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the annual report of 
the expenditures, income and operation of the Ferry Division, 
for the financial year ending January 31, 1901, and the 
amount of property and the condition of the same. 

One new propeller boat, the " General Sumner," was built 
and put into commission September 4, 1900, the total cost of 
which was $95,300. 

The ferry-boat " Winthrop," having been in service for 
twenty-seven years, was sold at public auction, October 25, 
1900, for $1,199.50 net. 

The propeller ferry-boat " Gov. Russell," which was re- 
purchased from the United States Government and refitted 
for ferry purposes, did not go into service until January 3, 
1900, so that two new propeller boats have been in commis- 
sion this year. Three propeller boats run on the North 
Ferry, three side-wheel boats at the South Ferry ; a total of 
six boats in commission during the year. For eleven months 
of last year there were only five boats running, four side- 
wheel and one propeller. 

The increased cost of maintenance, caused by running one 
additional propeller boat and one propeller in place of a side- 
wheeler, withdrawn from the service, was about $9,500, not 
including the expense for coal, which was increased about 
$7,000. 

At the beginning of the year $2,000 was paid for a new 
shaft to replace one broken in December, 1899, and two more 
have since been replaced, one on the " D. D. Kelly," the other 
on the " Revere," a total cost of nearly $6,000. 

A new and modern coal-pocket is being erected at the 
South Ferry, East Boston side. Plans have been made for a 



40 City Document No. 38. 

new head-house at this place, and as soon as the coal-pocket 
is completed work upon it will be commenced. ' These im- 
provements have been needed for many years, and it is hoped 
that before the end of the current year this landing will have 
as good facilities as the others. With this exception the 
buildings, boats, piers and drops are in good condition. 

Extraordinary repairs were found to be needed to the 
engines of the " Noddle Island," " Gov. Russell," and 
" Revere." These have been made at a cost of nearly 
$2,500. 

The water-closets and sinks at Boston side, South Ferry, 
have been connected with the sewer. This necessitated the 
building of nine new closets, at a cost of about $900. 

A new office has been built for the use of the Deputy 
Superintendent, at East Boston side, North Ferry, at a cost 
of about $1,000. 

Ice-water tanks have been placed in head-houses at both 
sides of North Ferry. 

The canopies, gates and drops on both sides of the North 
Ferry and the head-house on Boston side, have been painted 
for the first time in several years. 

The head-house on Boston side, North Ferry, has been 
wired and lighted with incandescent lights. 

The piers at three of the landings have been repaired and 
put in good condition, at a cost of over $2,000. 

By reference to the financial statement it will be seen that 
the receipts fell off $5,194.25, of which amount $1,185.50 
was the difference between the sale of the " Ben Franklin " 
in 1899, and the "Winthrop" this year; the balance was 
decrease in foot and team travel. This decrease was occa- 
sioned by the blocking up of the South Ferry, East Boston 
entrance, by tunnel construction, and the fact that during a 
greater part of the year the large steamers were not running 
here, being engaged in carrying troops to South Africa. 



Land and Property of the Ferry Division. 

South Ferry, East Boston Side. — Located at the termina- 
tion of Lewis street, and covers an area of 58,725 square 
feet of land and water. On these premises are one head- 
house, with canopies, one work-shop for carpenters, machin- 
ists and blacksmith, one gate-room and oil-room ; all in a 
poor condition : three piers, which form the two slips, two 
drops and tanks, and one dock, where boats are laid when 
not in use, or while undergoing repairs. 



Street Department — Ferry Division. 41 

South Ferry, Boston Side. — Located at the termination of 
Eastern avenue, and covers an area of 38,135 square feet 
of land and water, upon which are one head-house, with 
canopies, one gate-room, three piers, which form the two slips 
and two drops and tanks. 

North Ferry, Boston Side. — Located at the termination of 
Battery street, and 'covers an area of 45,000 square feet of 
land and water, upon which are one head-house, with cano- 
pies, one gate-room, three piers, which form the two slips, and 
two drops and tanks. 

North Ferry, East Boston Side. — Located at the termina- 
tion of Border street, and covers an area of 62,138 square 
feet of land and water, upon which are one head-house, with 
canopies, one boiler and oil-room, one stable, and one coal 
shed, three piers, which form the two slips, and two drops 
and tanks. 

The wharf property adjoining the premises at Boston side, 
South Ferry, was leased by the East Boston Ferry Company 
for 999 years, at an annual rental of $4,000, which lease was 
assigned to the Ferry Department. The whole of it is sub- 
let to the Penal Institutions Department for $2,000 per 
year. This makes a net loss to this Division of $2,000 a 
year, and, in my opinion, the Penal Institutions Department 
should pay the whole rental. 

The following steam ferry-boats are in commission : 

Name. When built. Kind. Length. 

Revere 1875. Side-wheel 148 ft. 

D.D.Kelly 1879. " " 148 " 

Hugh O'Brien 1883. " " 163 " 

General Hancock 1887. " " 148 " 

Noddle Island 1899. Propeller 164 ft. 3 in. 

Gov. Russell 1900. " 164 " 3 " 

General Sumner ...1900. " 164 " 3 " 

Respectfully yours, 

Jos. J. Dennison, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT 
OF THE PAVING DIVISION. 



Room 44, City Hall, Boston, February 1, 1901. 

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

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the annual report of 
the expenditures and income of the Paving Division of the 
Street Department for the financial year ending January 31, 
1901, showing the nature of the work, the number and 
variety of permits issued, and the details of expenditures 
involved in paving, macadamizing, regulating, and construct- 
ing various streets. 

The Paving Division has charge of the following work : 

The maintenance and rebuilding of street surfaces and 
sidewalks. 

The placing of street signs. 

The numbering of buildings. 

The issuing of permits to open or occupy the streets, or for 
such other purpose as may be required under the ordinances. 

The removal of snow and ice from the streets, gutters and 
plank walks. 

The cleaning of streets in the outlying sections of the City 
not covered by the Street Cleaning Division. 

The Division is in charge of a Deputy Superintendent, with 
a clerical force under the direction of a chief clerk and an 
engineering force under the direction of a chief engineer. 

The past year has been one of unusual activity in the 
Paving Division, and the amount of work accomplished has 
resulted in a material improvement in the condition and 
appearance of the streets throughout the entire City. Owing 
to the uncertainty attending the outcome of the legislation 
relating to the tax limit, and the consequent delay in the ap- 
propriations, little new construction was begun until late in 
the season ; notwithstanding this fact, however, a large num- 
ber of streets have been constructed in the outlying districts, 



54 City Document No. 38. 

and material progress has been made in the reconstruction of 
streets in the business section of the City. The condition of 
the down-town streets, so called, has been a constant source 
of complaint for years ; the pavement of many of these streets 
has been laid for from twenty to thirty years, and the constant 
wear and tear of heavy teaming, together with the digging 
up of the pavement by corporations occupjang the streets 
has rendered, their condition worse from year to year, until 
at the present time many of the streets are entirely unfit for 
the travel to which they are subjected. 

Reconstruction. 

The business interests of the City demand that proper 
facilities be provided for the transportation of goods, and the 
immense amount of teaming required for this purpose ren- 
ders it imperative that the streets be paved with a perma- 
nent pavement laid in the most substantial manner. A com- 
prehensive scheme for the renovation of the streets in the 
business section of the City has been inaugurated, the bene- 
ficial effects of which are already apparent in the improved 
facilities for teaming and travel on the streets reconstructed 
in the past year. Atlantic avenue and Commercial street 
furnish notable examples of both the old and new conditions. 
These streets, which together form a broad avenue covering 
the entire water front of the lower end of the City, and which 
are almost wholly given up to heavy teaming, have been a 
constant source of complaint on account of the deplorable 
condition of the road-bed and pavement, which rendered 
teaming both difficult and dangerous. To remedy these 
conditions and provide a pavement which would meet the 
requirements of the heavy traffic to which these streets are 
subjected, provision was made for repaving these streets with 
large granite blocks with cement grout joints laid on a con- 
crete base. 

Contracts have been let covering the entire water front on 
these streets, and a large portion of the work has already 
been completed. The work will be resumed and finished 
the coming season, and the streets when completed will fur- 
nish an avenue for heavy teaming without an equal. The 
following-named streets have also been reconstructed in a 
substantial manner as stated, viz., Devonshire street, from 
State street to Water street, and Oliver street, from Milk 
street to Atlantic avenue, were repaved with large granite 
blocks laid on a six-inch concrete base with pitch and pebble 
joints ; Prince, Court, and Bos worth streets were repaved with 



Street Department — Paving Division. 55 

granite blocks with pitch and pebble joints on a gravel base ; 
and Boylston street, from Washington street to Tremont street, 
repaved with granite blocks on a gravel bed. The repaving 
of Summer street, from Washington street to Federal street, 
has also been completed with large granite blocks laid on a 
six-inch concrete base with cement grout joints. 

Asphalt Pavement. 

There has been an increased demand for asphalt pavements 
on the part of the public, particularly in the residential dis- 
tricts and in the sections of the City occupied by business 
offices, on account of the noiseless character of the pavement 
and its cleanly appearance. 

In compliance with this demand, asphalt pavements have 
been laid in the following streets, viz. : Tremont street, 
from Scollay square to Boylston street; Beacon street, from 
Arlington street to Clarendon street ; Boylston street, from 
Arlington street to Berkeley street; Temple place; Mason 
street ; Trinity place, from Stuart street to Stanhope street ; 
and Prince street, between Hanover street and Salem street, 
in the City Proper, and in Meridian street, from Trenton 
street to Eutaw street, in East Boston. The asphalt in all 
of these streets was laid under a 10-year guarantee. 

A portion of Tremont street was paved with a new style 
of wooden block laid on a 6-inch concrete base as an experi- 
ment for the purpose of determining the comparative dura- 
bility of this form of pavement. The blocks used were 
furnished and laid by the United States Wood Preserving 
Company. These blocks have been treated by a new process 
which, it is claimed, renders them impervious to moisture 
and more durable than the old style of wooden block. This 
portion of the work was also laid under a 10-year guarantee, 
and the practical result of the experiment is awaited with 
a great deal of interest. The widening of the sidewalks on 
this street now meets with universal approval on account 
of additional accommodation for foot travel and the improve- 
ment in the appearance of the street. 

Assessment Streets. 

Under the provisions of Chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891, 
and Acts in amendment thereof or in addition thereto, 
thirty-two new streets and two public alleys have been con- 
structed and sixteen streets partially constructed. Work on 
the widening and construction of Cambridge street, Ward 
25, from Brighton avenue to Washington street, which was 



56 City Document No. 38. 

begun and suspended under the last administration, has 
been resumed, and the work will be completed the coming 
season. The work of widening Tremont street, Ward 25, 
from Washington street to the Newton line, a much-needed 
improvement, has also been begun, and good progress made 
thereon. The work is now suspended, but will be resumed 
and finished in the spring. The construction of the " 323 " 
streets, so called, and all new street construction, is now under 
the direct supervision of the Paving Division. The large 
amount of engineering incidental to street construction re- 
quires the constant employment of a large force of engineers, 
who have heretofore been detailed from another Department. 
These men, although paid by the Street Department, were 
still under the control of the Department to which they 
belonged. 

Experience has demonstrated that to secure the best re- 
sults this force should be under the direct control of and 
answerable to the Superintendent of Streets alone. This has 
been accomplished by the creation of an engineering corps 
of the Paving Division, corresponding to the engineering 
corps of the Sewer Division, to take charge of the details of 
construction, prepare plans, and to consider and report on all 
matters requiring the services of an engineer. 

General Work. 

The regular force of the Division has been constantly 
employed during the year in improving the general condition 
of the streets throughout the City. 

About forty-two (42) miles of macadam streets, with an 
area of 551,869 square yards, have been resurfaced. 

Two hundred and sixty-five thousand linear feet of edge- 
stones have been set or reset, 222,000 square yards of paving 
relaid, and about 145,000 square yards of brick sidewalks 
laid outside of the work done under contract for street con- 
struction. Many of the macadam streets in the outlying sec- 
tions of the City are in a disgraceful condition, and the con- 
dition of many of the paved streets affords just ground for 
complaint. 

The work of the past year has resulted in a marked im- 
provement in the appearance of the streets, but much still 
remains to be done to make their condition satisfactory. 

Extensive repairs have also been made on the asphalt 
streets throughout the City, under the supervision of this 
Division, and their condition has been materially improved. 
The condition of some of the older pavements on which the 



Street Department — Paving Division. 57 

guarantee has expired is such that it would be economy in 
many cases to resurface the entire street as the expense of 
patching increases with each successive year, and no amount 
of patching will put or keep the pavement in proper condi- 
tion. 

A large portion of the road-bed of Commonwealth avenue, 
in Ward 25, has been entirely reconstructed, and the construc- 
tion of the avenue is now complete, with the exception of a 
portion of the loam space. 

The bridge over Columbia road, at Richfield street, Ward 
20, is now in process of construction, under an agreement 
between the City of Boston and the New York, New Haven 
& Hartford Railroad Company. The completion of this 
bridge will do away with the awkward and dangerous condi- 
tion heretofore existing at this point, and will enable the City 
to complete the construction of Columbia road, and make 
suitable connections with the intersecting streets. 

The abandonment of the Park Square Station as a railroad 
terminal has opened the way for a change in the construction 
of Berkele}^ street, between Boylston street and Columbus 
avenue, which will be of material benefit to the public. Ad- 
vantage has been taken of the opportunity afforded to revise 
the grade of the street and do away with the bridge over the 
railroad. Plans have been made, and a contract let for re- 
moving the bridge and filling the street over the railroad 
location. By the revised grade the present rise in the street 
will be removed, and a practically level grade established for 
the street, which will give better facilities for travel. 

Crushing Plant. 

Important and much-needed changes in and additions to 
the crushing plant of the Department have been made during 
the year. A new crusher, with an output of 300 tons per 
day, has been erected between Iffley road and Montebello 
road, in the West Roxbury District. This crusher is fitted 
with all the modern appliances and is built in the most 
thorough and substantial manner ; it is conceded to be one 
of the finest in the country. The crusher formerly standing 
on the Bleiler ledge, in the Roxbury District, has been 
removed to the Kenney ledge and thoroughly overhauled and 
repaired. 

Extensive repairs have also been made on the other 
crushers belonging to the Department, and the entire crush- 
ing plant is now in first-class working order. The crusher 
at Rosseter street, in the Dorchester District, will serve its 



58 City Document No. 38. 

purpose in its present location through the winter, but its 
condition is such that its removal to another location would 
not be feasible. 

Yard and Wharf Room. 

The facilities for receipt and storage of material for con- 
struction, and for the proper care, of the stock and property 
of the City, have been entirely inadequate to the needs of 
the Department. Much has been done during the year to 
meet the wants of the Department in this respect, and as a 
result the conditions have been materially improved. 

By the conversion of the old swill wharf and buildings on 
Albany street to this Division, additional and much-needed 
room for the receipt and storage of construction material for 
use in the City Proper has been secured. 

Additional wharf and yard room in the North End district 
has also been secured by the lease of the adjoining premises, 
which, with the contemplated change in and addition to the 
present buildings will provide ample room for the receipt and 
storage of the stock and property of the City in this section. 

In the East Boston district a model yard for the use of 
the several Divisions of the Street Department has been pro- 
vided by the lease of a portion of the property of the Glendon 
Company. Stables, sheds, and an office building have been 
erected and ample facilities provided for the proper care of 
the stock and property of the several Divisions. 

The excellent wharf privileges connected with this yard 
and ease of access render it a most desirable acquisition to 
the Department. 

Steam Rollers and Tools. 

The steam rollers belonging in the Department (six in 
number) have been thoroughly overhauled and repaired at a 
considerable expense, and, with a slight outlay for minor re- 
pairs, will be in good shape for the coming season. 

The stock of tools belonging to the Division has been 
thoroughly gone over and repairs and additions made to the 
same. The wagons and other appliances in use have also 
been repaired, and everything put in good condition for use. 

Assessment Streets. 

The following streets were constructed under Chapter 823, 
of the Acts of 1891, and the Acts in amendment thereof, or 
in addition thereto : 



Street Department — Paving Division. 59 

Ashley street, from Breed street to Walley street, is about 
650 feet long. The contract for constructing the surface of this 
street was awarded to Philip Doherty, September 21, 1900. 
Work under this contract was begun October 1, 1900, and sus- 
pended December 17, 1900. 

Barry street, between Hamilton street and Quincy street, 
" ledge excavation." The contract for excavating the ledge on

At the close of business on June 14 last all bonds with per- 
sonal sureties were retired, and applicants for permits were noti- 
fied that future bonds must be guaranteed by some one of the 
surety companies authorized to do business in the State of 
Massachusetts. 

There are now on file 988 bonds, which are so guaranteed, and 
the result has been very satisfactory. 

Under the old system, in many cases when it has been neces- 
sary to call upon the personal sureties to assume liability for dam- 
ages caused by parties holding permits, it has been found that the 
sureties were woi^thless, as property which they possessed when 
signing such bonds had been transferred, and could not be held. 

Over two hundred letters have been sent to storekeepers and 
house-holders in connection with selling fruit, etc., from door- 
ways, windows and areas, and special care has been used in grant- 
ing permits relating to that class of business. 

There have been 14,037 notices sent to the various foremen 
during the year, directing them to repair defects in the public 



Street Department — Paving. Division.

streets which had been reported by the police and others ; also, 
3,581 letters and notices to private parties, departments and 
corporations to repair the streets where they had received 
permits for openings, and the resurfacing had been improperly 
done, and to owners of estates where coal-holes or sidewalk 
lights were defective. 

Notices have been sent to Departments, corporations, and 
owners of abutting estates on streets where improvements were 
about to be made in 2,265 instances. 

Four hundred and forty-two notices have been sent to Depart- 
ments and corporations at the request of the Chief Engineer of 
the Paving Division, calling for various changes on account of 
street improvements. 

Inspectors. 

Inspectors connected with this office have been engaged in 
inspecting locations where permits had been granted for street 
openings or occupancy, and, where defects were found, the 
parties so opening or occupying have been notified and required 
to place the street complained of in satisfactory condition. 

Inspectors have been detailed to serve with the various corpo- 
rations at all times while their work has been in progress, and a 
report has been regulary received from them, in writing, giving 
the particulars of the work and its condition. 

Street Numbering. 

During the year 106 whole streets were numbered or renum- 
bered, 984 parts of streets were numbered, and 6,741 metallic 
figures were supplied. 

The following table explains the work done by districts, and 
in addition gives the number of estates numbered, and the num- 
ber of changes made necessary by renumbering or other cause.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT 
OF THE SANITARY DIVISION. 



Rooms 917-920 Tremont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1901. 

B. T. Wheeler, Esq., 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the annual report of 
the expenditures, income and operation of the Sanitary Divi- 
sion of the Street Department during the financial year 
ending January 31, 1901. 

The work of this Division consists principally in the 
removal of house offal, waste and rubbish, ashes made in the 
process of heating and cooking, and engine or power ashes. 

The serious problem that confronted this Division at the 
opening of the year was the economical adaptation of its 
working force to meet the requirements of the eight-hour 
law, passed by the citizens at the election in December, 1899. 

The loss of labor caused by the operation of this law on 
the basis of the number of men employed is approximately 
equal to 20,000 days' work. 

In order to adjust the teaming labor so as to occasion the 
least waste of time and the most efficient prosecution of the 
work, an increase was made in the force of hostlers at the West 
yard. Teamsters were entirely relieved of the care of their 
horses and harnesses while at the stables, thus enabling 
them to give a full day to the work of collection. 

The success of this experiment warranted its extension, 
and it was adopted at the Roxbury yard with the same sat- 
isfactory results. The further extension of the plan through- 
out the Division is now contemplated. 

The securing of suitable dumping-places presents a prob- 
lem difficult of solution, to which attention has been 
called in former reports. In all the more thickly settled 
sections of the City, the dumping-places are so remote from 
points of collection that the expense of hauling is vastly

increased, and this becomes equally true in the rapidly grow- 
ing outlying districts. This is particularly applicable to the 
Charlestown District, where it is imperative that some relief 
be given, and it is therefore recommended that a scow be 
located near Charles River avenue to receive material col- 
lected in Charlestown and portions of the North and West 
Ends. 

The objection of householders to gathering paper and other 
light waste into a separate receptacle, or to the so-called 
" third separation," has gradually diminished as the public 
has become acquainted with the plan and purpose. 

The success of this separation is shown by the great in- 
crease in the quantity delivered to the City Refuse Utiliza- 
tion Company's plant, as compared with the previous year. 
The average weight per load in 1899 was 796 pounds; the 
average weight per load in 1900 was 1,045 ; increase per 
load, 249 pounds. The aggregate removal in 1899 was 
6,669 tons, and in 1900, 8,581 tons — an increase of 1,912 
tons. 

The contract system now in operation in some of the 
suburban districts is unsatisfactory to the residents, and a 
continued source of annoyance to the Division ; the substitu- 
tion of labor under direct control of the Division is desirable, 
and is strongly recommended. 

The extreme age of one of the Barney dumping boats 
necessitated the purchase of a new boat, the cost of which, 
117,500, was paid from the maintenance appropriation for 
the year. All three boats are now seaworthy and in excellent 
repair. The docks have been dredged to a depth sufficient 
to allow them to enter and depart at all tides. 

Considerable expense has been incurred the past year in 
the employment of outside tow-boats, the Department boat 
not being always available. 

The repair-shops at the Albany street yard have been 
improved, and they are now second to none of their kind. 
Early in the year the repair-shops of the Street Cleaning 
Division were merged into those of this Division, and many 
radical changes were made. 

Both the blacksmith and wheelwright shops were sup- 
plied with all necessary modern machinery, and operated by 
an electric motor of fifteen horse-power. At the same time 
the nine forges of the blacksmith and horseshoeing shops 
were connected with a Sturtevant electric motor and fan. 
In short, the shops have been modernized, and are now 
thoroughly equipped for the work of repairing and construct- 
ing the rolling stock of the Street Department. 



156 City Document No. 38. 

Commodious and convenient quarters on East Eagle street, 
East Boston, have replaced the location at Chelsea street, 
temporarily provided upon the substitution of Department 
force for contract labor in the collection of ashes in this 
section. 

The stables and sheds on North Grove street are wholly 
inadequate to the increasing demands of the West District. 
Most of the carts and wagons are without covering, and 
shelter for many horses has of necessity been provided in 
old, unsanitary sheds, remote from the stable, while the stable 
walls are so bulged in places as to raise a question concern- 
ing their safety. 

Apart from this, the several stables and sheds in charge of 
the Division have been kept in good repair. 

The rolling stock has been put in excellent condition. 
Several large paper wagons have been added for conveying 
paper from points remote from the place of deposit. 

Many horses are required to replace those nearly or quite 
unfit for service. Sixteen have been added during the year. 

Respectfully yours, 

C. A. Young, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Removal of House Dirt, Ashes, Waste and Rubbish, and 
House Offal. 

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

Previous to the year 1897, each load of ashes was equivalent 
to 44 cubic feet. During 1897 sideboards were attached to ash 
carts, increasing capacity of cart to 54 cubic feet. 

Prior to 1899, waste and rubbish were not separated from the 
ashes. About 150,000 barrels of engine ashes, the residuum 
of coal used for power, were collected and removed. 

On offal, each load is equivalent to 56 cubic feet; weight 
approximately 1|- tons on an average. 

Many small dead animals — dogs, cats, etc., were removed, 
and a constant increase in this branch of the service is shown.

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT 
OF THE SEWER DIVISION. 



30 Tkemont street, 

Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Me. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit report of the expendi- 
tures, income and operation of the Sewer Division for the 
financial year ending January 31, 1901. 

The work of the Sewer Division is as follows : 

The preparation of plans for sewerage -works, the con- 
struction and maintenance of all drainage works, including 
the investigation of complaints in regard to defective drain- 
age, the granting of permits for sewer connections and the 
preparation of plans for the assessment of the cost of sewer 
construction; also the examination of the plans of other 
corporations proposing to construct works in public streets, 
with reference to their probable interference with sewerage 
works. 

A general statement of the most important work done by 
the Division during the year, classified according to districts, 
is given in the succeeding pages. 

South Boston. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
1,207.31 linear feet of pipe sewers, 3,073.42 linear feet of brick 
sewers and 12 feet wooden sewer — making a total of 4,292.73 
linear feet or 0.813 miles, besides extensive repairs. 

The principal sewerage works completed are : 

The " A " street overflow connection with Russell's dock. 
This work has relieved the sewers in the vicinity of A street 
and Congress street, which were greatly overcrowded in time 
of storm. 

E street, from West First street to Summer street and in 
Summer-street extension. This work has provided an outlet 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 175 

for sewers already built in Summer street, and others de- 
signed but not yet built in the lands of the Commonwealth. 

Private land, formerly Blake street. This sewer was 
made necessary by the new location of the New York, New 
Haven & Hartford Railroad crossing this street, the old sewer 
not being strong enough to carry the heavy traffic which will 
run over this road. The new brick sewer was built inside the 
old stone sewer without disturbing the surface of the ground. 

Rebuilding the B and Seventh streets overflow. This was 
made necessary by the heavy filling which will be placed 
over it, to carry the new location of the New York, New 
Haven & Hartford Railroad. 

The sewer in Silver street between B and D streets, 
together with brick outlet in B street, has been rebuilt. 

A new sewer has been built in Bell court. 

Numerous minor repairs have been made in the district 
during the year. 

So far as can be determined the following will be the prin- 
cipal works built in this district during the ensuing year: 

Sewerage works in Leeds and Dixfield streets, laid out 
under chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891. 

A portion at least of the sewers in the Strandway may be 
built. 

The following sewers are in very bad condition, and should 
be either rebuilt or repaired as is found necessary at as early 
a date as possible. 

D street, from Dorchester avenue to Eighth street, is very 
badly settled. It should have had a pile foundation, but was 
built without it. The rebuilding has been delayed owing to 
the uncertainty in regard to whether the depression in D 
street at the railroad bridge would be done away with or not. 
As long as this depression remained it complicated the 
design for the sewer, but it seems safe now to assume that it 
will be filled up to meet the grade of the new street, which 
will be built upon the old location of the railroad when this 
is abandoned by the railroad company. 

The D street sewer, between West Second street and 
Broadway, East Ninth and Dunham streets sewers, and the 
sewer in Mercer street, with its outlet in Vale street. 

Gold street, West Fourth street, West Fifth street, West 
Sixth street, West Seventh street and West Eighth street 
sewer, all lying between E and B streets. 

K street overflow outlet should be extended and finished 
off in a manner similar to that at N street. 

The outlets at H, M, and P streets should be extended 
through the Strandway to low-water mark in a manner simi- 



176 City Document No. 38. 

lar to that adopted at N street, and a new outlet should be 
built for the overflow of the Q street sewer at First street. 



ROXBUKY. 

There have been built in this district during the past year, 
291.18 feet of brick sewers, 5,057.44 feet of pipe sewers, and 
2,364.86 feet of surface drains, making a total of 7,713.48 feet, 
or 1.46 mile. 

Sewerage works have been built during the year in 

Dunford street and Cardington street. 

Chickamauga park. 

Fort avenue. 

Humboldt avenue, Waumbeck street to Hollander 
street. 

Massachusetts avenue, Swett street to Dorchester brook 
sewer. 

Gainsborough street. 

Aberdeen street. 

Kempton street. 

Bay State road. 

Faxon street. 

Medfied street. 

Roseland street. 

Board of Survey street, No. 295. 

Gainsborough street, between St. Botolph street and pas- 
sageway. 

Alleghany street. 

Sachem street. 

Ritchie street, between Columbus avenue and Marcella 
street, is in progress. This sewer is a continuation of the old 
brick sewer through the Marcella-street Home property, built 
about 30 years ago, and is a very important piece of work, 
as, when completed, it will relieve a large territory in the 
vicinity of Washington street and Kingsbury street. The 
sewers in this vicinity being so small, serious flooding results 
after every heavy storm. 

The district which most needs immediate attention in Rox- 
bury is the Ruggles street district, the principal streets of 
which are : Ruggles, Hammond, Warwick, Westminster and 
Cabot. 

These sewers are all too high to properly drain the cellars, 
are badly out of line and grade, and are much too small to 
carry the " combined " flow. 

The Bower and Sherman streets district, like the above, 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 177 

has an old and dilapidated system, and a start should be made 
to rebuild it in the near future. 

The Swett street district, so called, is now prominently 
brought to our attention by the proposed action of the Street 
Commissioners in laying out Atkinson street under chapter 
3.23 of the Acts of 1891. 

The George-street sewer, from Rockford street to Clarence 
street, is too small and high to drain the cellars. It should 
be rebuilt of a larger size and at a greater depth. 

Owing to the rapid development of the territory in the 
vicinity of Humboldt avenue, Ruthven and Hutchings streets, 
the old sewers have become entirely inadequate. Many of the 
finest dwellings in this vicinity have been troubled by the 
backing up of sewage into the cellars, and the street and 
lawns have been flooded, causing considerable damage. A 
start should be made on a system of surface drainage during 
the next year. 

Vila street district. The sewerage works necessary for 
Brookline avenue, between Longwood entrance and the 
Riverway will be built as soon as the plans and specifications 
can be completed. This will commence the work on the out- 
let for the Vila street district, the lower end of which is in 
Brookline avenue. 

This district is at present discharging both house sewage 
and storm water into the Metropolitan sewer, and as soon 
as the portion of the surface drain in Brookline avenue 
is completed it should be carried at least as far as Vila 
street; and if the surface drainage system is not carried over 
the district this outlet should be converted into a temporary 
overflow for the system. 

Fenway lands. — The surface drainage of this district, or 
as much of it as is built, is still discharging on to the surface 
of the marsh. The present outlets are in Kilmarnock street 
at Boylston street and Ipswich street, near Lansdowne street. 
The main surface drain of the district will be in Jersey street. 

It is recommended that when the Jersey street drain. is 
built the existing surface drains be extended to it, as the 
discharge of this water on to private land must soon cause a 
nuisance. 

Smith Street District. — This district suffers severely in 
storms which are not of the severest; something should be 
done as early as possible. 

A large surface drain in Smith street, from Stony brook 
channel in Parker street to Whitney street, would probably 
effect enough relief to silence a majority of the complaints 
from the residents of this district. Plans and estimates 



178 City Document No. 38. 

have been prepared, and work will begin as soon as the work 
of the Metropolitan Sewerage Commission in this district 
will allow. 

The wooden outlet for Muddy river in Brookline is in 
very bad condition, and will have to be extensively repaired 
and a portion rebuilt during the coming year. 

Plans are in preparation for the proposed by-pass channel 

the Back Bay Fens for the foul water flow of Stony 
brook, and the work may be begun during the coming year. 

On the Muddy river parkway, or Jamaicaway (so called), 
between the gate-house on Brookline avenue and Morss 
avenue in Brookline a similar problem exists to the Stony 
brook foul water channel, namely, the problem of providing 
a channel or channels for conveying away the flow of Muddy 
river, when the same is too foul for the open channel. A 
design has been prepared for this purpose, and the cost esti- 
mated at $316,000. • The town of Brookline discharges 
more foul water into the Muddy river channel by far than 
the City of Boston, and should join in building this channel, 
or else should be advised to take care of pollution on its 
own side. 

Of the above-named price, if the two municipalities join, 
32 per cent., or $101,120, should be borne by the City of 
Boston, and 68 per cent., or $214,880, by the town of Brook- 
line ; these proportions being based upon the respective 
areas of each municipality located in the watershed. 

Dorchester. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
24 feet of brick sewers, 17,746.93 feet of pipe sewers, 
4,907.31 feet of brick surface drains, 11,841.96 feet pipe 
surface drains, 60.24 feet stone surface drains, 199.20 feet 
wood surface drains, making a total of 34,779.67 feet, or 
6.59 miles. 

The following work has been built during the year: 
J^The 5-foot conduit, and house sewer on each side of the 
same, in Ceylon street, from Quincy street to Columbia road, 
has been completed. This drains the low portion of Colum- 
bia road near the railroad bridge and adjacent territory 
between Washington and Glendale streets and the low 
ground in the vicinity of Richfield street. 

Massachusetts avenue, from Swett street to Edward 
Everett square, has been provided with house sewers from 
the railroad crossing to Edward Everett square and with 
catch-basins and surface drains for the entire length. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 179 

The Magazine street sewer which had an outlet into the 
South Bay at Massachusetts avenue has been connected 
with the intercepter, doing away with the outlet which had 
become a nuisance. 

The repairing of the Dorchester intercepter at Freeport 
street has been begun. 

Sewerage works in Boston, Draper, Barry, Conrad and 
Annabel streets have been completed, and have been begun 
in Hancock street. 

A considerable amount of surface drainage work has been 
built in Dorchester during the past year. On the Canter- 
bury branch of Stony brook the 10-foot circular brick conduit 
has been extended through Lyons street from Callender 
street nearly to Franklin field. A 7-foot circular brick 
conduit has been built on this brook between Bernard street 
and "Franklin field. The Oakland Garden fork of this 
branch has been extended up Millet street to the culvert 
crossing this street near Wheatland avenue. 

A pipe conduit is being constructed in Norfolk street, 
between Bernard street and Wentworth street, for a tribu- 
tary of this brook, which comes from the south, and is 
known as the Wentworth street fork. This conduit should 
be extended through Wentworth street to the land of Har- 
vard College. A 24-inch pipe surface drain, which is also a 
part of this system, has been carried from West Park street, 
through Kilton street, to and across the N. Y., N. H. & H. 
R.R., at Harvard street station, and obviates the flooding 
which regularly occurred at this point after every heavy rain- 
storm. 

On Tenean creek, the structure on the south branch has 
been completed between Gibson and Dix streets, thereby 
making the structure complete from tidewater to Dorchester 
avenue, .at Rosemont road. 

The Ashmont street fork has been completed to Templeton 
street, and one branch continued to Wrentham street, near 
Bruce street. 

On the north branch the conduit has been completed as 
far as Westville street, and now provides an excellent outlet 
for surface water for an area of about 350 acres of well-built- 
up territory, from Mt. Bowdoin to Park street and Dorches- 
ter avenue. 

Davenport Brook. — A culvert has been built for this brook 
on Adams street, near Minot street, the Adams street sewer 
being lowered by siphoning in order to provide waterway for 
the culvert. 

A brick conduit has been built for the brook in Magdala 



180 City Document No. 38. 

and Van Winkle streets, and private land adjacent. Be- 
tween Bailey and Burt streets the brook has also been 
enclosed in a brick conduit. 

In addition to the above-mentioned work, house sewers or 
surface drains have been built in Cottage Park, Corbet, Max- 
well, Codman, Norfolk, Millet, Burt, Florida, Shepton, Callen- 
der, Templeton, Chase, Fenton, Glen, Wooison, Hosmer, 
Harlem, Samoset, Gately, Beaumont, River, Adams, Wash- 
ington, Mascot, Van Winkle, Montague, Shepton, Seaborn, 
and Florida streets, and in Neponset and Dorchester avenues; 
and are now in progress in Moseley street and Spencer street, 
between Athelwold and Harvard streets. 

The principal work in Dorchester is, and will continue to 
be, the extension of the existing sewerage systems. 

The sewerage system in Blue Hill avenue, between Matta- 
pan square and Walk Hill street, is in an unfinished condi- 
tion and should be completed. A part of the house sewer 
on the east side has been built in connection with the Mat- 
pan brook conduit, but remains without an outlet. 

At the Columbia road crossing of the Midland Division of 
the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. the sewerage system is in a com- 
plicated condition, a number of temporary expedients having 
been adopted pending the completion of the new railroad 
bridge. As soon as the abutments have been constructed 
the sewer system at this point will be completed in perma- 
nent shape. 

The old pipe sewers in Vinson and Spring Garden streets 
need rebuilding. 

In order to improve the conditions under which the Tal- 
bot avenue sewer is operated a complete separation of the 
house sewer and storm water systems throughout the Tal- 
bot avenue and Harvard street district should be effected. 
This work will consist principally in building surface drains 
to take the flow of the catch-basins out of the existing sewers. 

In Dorchester a large amount of surface drainage work 
is called for, of which the following items may be men- 
tioned : 

Oakland Brook Culvert, across River Street, near the Hyde 
Park Line. — This culvert is in a dilapidated condition and 
unable to carry the brook when in flood, the water going 
over River street at this point. The brook at River street is 
the outlet for a drainage area of about 700 acres, partly in 
Hyde Park and mostly unimproved land. This culvert 
ought to be rebuilt at once, and takings made for the outlet 
down to some convenient point where an outlet can be ob- 
tained into the main brook or the Neponset river. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 181 

Mattapan Brook. — On this brook the conduit which has 
been built from the river to Fremont street should be ex- 
tended far enough to cross the railroad track at least, and 
this work should be completed before work is begun on the 
abolition of the Blue Hill avenue grade crossing. The 
building of surface drains and culverts in West Selden 
street on this system may necessitate some clearing out and 
ditching of the watercourse between the points last named 
and West Selden street, but will hardly require the building 
of any masonry structures. 

Davenport Brook. — This brook should be deepened at the 
lower end, below the culvert recently built at Adams street, 
enough to drain off the stagnant water standing under the 
culvert. A covered culvert should also be built between 
Van Winkle and Bailey streets, and between Burt and 
Ashmont streets. The pipe culvert under the car-house op- 
posite Armandine street should be extended to connect with 
the lower Armandine street culvert and thence to the upper 
Armandine street culvert. There should also be a pipe 
conduit laid between the Rockwell and Stockton street 
culverts. 

Tenean Creek. — The south fork of the brook should during 
the coming year be extended through Rosemont, Samoset, 
Centre and Gorham streets, and through private land, Brent, 
Wainwright and Lithgoe streets to the culvert across Centre 
street into which the Seaborn street system of surface drain- 
age now discharges. The Ashmont street fork of this brook 
has been built as far as Templeton street, and one tributary 
continued as far as Wrentham street near Bruce street. 
Both tributaries should be continued up to Ashmont street 
during the coming year. 

Freeport Street Brook. — The improvement of this brook be- 
tween Columbia road and Hancock street near Winter street 
which has been forced by the widening and improvement of 
Hancock street will necessitate the improvement of the 
lower reaches of the brook, and it should be built during the 
coming year from tidewater to Hancock street, partly in pri- 
vate land and partly in the public streets. The Crescent ave- 
nue surface drain should be built across the New York, New 
Haven & Hartford Railroad and through Shoreham street 
before the new road-bed is put in use, and in order to allow 
the completion of Columbia road where Shoreham street 
crosses it. If possible it should also be extended up Carson 
street and Crescent avenue and relief overflows established 
from the existing sewer system into it in order to relieve the 
flooding which frequently takes place in this vicinity. 



182 City Document No. 38. 

Dorchester Brook Sewer. — This sewer, system is built 
throughout most of its extent on the combined system, but 
there are some parts where separate sewers have been put in. 
The separation of this sewerage system is one of the prob- 
lems of the future, and the sooner it is undertaken the less 
expensive it will prove. 

Canterbury Branch of Stony Brook. — On account of the 
development of the territory in the vicinity of Blue Hill 
avenue and Franklin field, this branch of the brook should 
be enclosed in a covered conduit from Don street to and 
across Blue Hill avenue and thence to Harvard street. 
Westerly from this point it may be improved by ditching for 
a long distance, no permanent structure seeming to be 
required until some time in the future. 

A covered conduit should also be built from Lyons street 
northerly and westerly across Franklin field, gathering in 
all the branches coming from the east and connecting with 
the Franklin park brook (so called) near the corner of 
Talbot avenue and Blue Hill avenue. This last water 
course should also be improved and covered from Frank- 
lin field to the culvert across Blue Hill avenue near Angell 
street. 

The Oakland Garden fork of this branch is now enclosed 
in a covered conduit all the way from Franklin field to 
the old site of the Oakland garden, except a short piece in 
Millet street and Wheatland avenue, where it flows through 
private land. This portion should be completed. 

East Boston. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
93.39 feet of brick sewers, 2,049.75 feet of pipe sewers, 
48.70 feet of brick surface drains, 278.60 feet of pipe surface 
drains, making a total of 2,470.44 feet, or .46 mile. 

The most important work done in this district during the 
past year has been the building of house drains, catch-basin 
drains and catch-basins in Wordsworth street, between Sara- 
toga and Pope streets ; building ventilating shafts for the 
Chelsea, Pope and- Curtis street sewers, and cleaning and 
coating inside with Portland cement the sewer in Chelsea 
street, from Chelsea bridge to Curtis street. This work is 
now in progress, and is for the purpose of preventing the 
petroleum with which the ground is saturated from percolat- 
ing into the sewer through the brick work. This oil evi- 
dently leaks from the tanks of the oil works on the north- 
westerly side of Chelsea street. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 183 

Sewers have also been built in Ashley street, Bennington 
street boulevard, Chelsea street, Eagle street, and private 
land, and Sumner street. 

The most important work in the East Boston district for 
the ensuing year will probably be the building of the sewer- 
age works necessitated by the laying out of the Bennington- 
street boulevard, although it is hoped that the Division may 
be able to make a start on at least one of the three intercept- 
ing sewers, which are very badly needed in this district, 
namely, the Breeds Island low level intercepting sewer ; the 
North side intercepting sewer and the Moore street district 
intercepted 

It is also desirable to build a system of sewers for the East 
Boston parkway, so called, and to rebuild the Bennington 
and Chelsea street sewers from Eagle square to Sumner 
street. 

Brighton. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
12,538.13 feet of pipe sewers, 2,746.01 feet of brick surface 
drains, 3,373.24 feet of pipe surface drains ; making a total 
of 18,657.38. feet, or 3.52 miles. 

The most important work in the past year has been in the 
line of surface drainage. 

Sewers and small surface drains have been built in 
Tremont street, between Oak square and the Newton line ; 
and in Cambridge street, between Union square and Wash- 
ington street. 

A covered brick conduit for the Faneuil Valley brook 
has been built in private land and Fairbanks street, from a 
point near Faneuil street to the culvert on Lake street, near 
Washington street, and a small pipe surface drain has been 
built in Washington street, between Cambridge street and 
Dighton place. 

Sewers or surface drains have also been built in the follow- 
ing streets : 

Adams street, Cummings road, 

Both well road, Donneybrook road, 

Brooksdale street, Idlewild street, 

Corri-ne road, Maple avenue. 

Private land north and south sides of Commonwealth 
avenue to Harvard avenue. 

Private land and Madison avenue, Riverview road, 
Newcastle road, Wallingford road. 

Raneleigh road, 



184 City Document No. 38. 

The most important work of this Division in Brighton 
for several years will be. in the line of surface drainage. 
There are a number of sewers which are too small to carry 
the floods of surface water, from which complaints are fre- 
quently received. They require relief by the building of 
surface drains. 

Salt Creek brook conduit should be extended from its 
present terminus, near Gardner street, to Charles river. 
The longer this work is delayed the greater will be the cost, 
as it will be necessary to pass under the tracks of the 
B. & A. R.R., and the railroad people are constantly increas- 
ing the number of tracks at the point the conduit must pass' 
under, they having freight yards at this place. 

A beginning should be made on the conduits for the Shep- 
ard street brook, and also for the large outlet conduit from 
the Wool pond to Charles river, which will form the outlet 
both for Shepard street brook and the Faneuil Valley brook. 
The improvements in the upper waters of the Faneuil Valley 
brook, recently made, will force the City to do something on 
the outlet in the near future. 

The outlet of the Everett street overflow should be ex- 
tended to the Charles river at an early date, on account of 
floodings which occur during heavy rains. This outlet for- 
merly emptied into a tidal creek which was filled up by 
building of the Speedway by the Metropolitan Park Com- 
mission. This Commission should bear a large portion, if 
not the entire, expense of extending this outlet. 

Surface drains should be built throughout the Aberdeen 
district, as the sewers in this district are on the separate 
system, draining into the town of Brookline system, and 
no catch-basins can be connected with them. 

Requests have been received for house sewers in Summit 
avenue, Mackin street, Allston terrace, and Hichborn street, 
all meritorious cases. 

West Roxbury. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
1,018 feet of brick sewers, 9,537.44 feet of pipe sewers, 
3,038.86 feet of brick surface drains, 2,867.70 feet of pipe 
surface drains ; making a total of 19,267.77 feet, or 3.65 miles. 

The most important work done in West Roxbury has been 
the building of Goldsmith brook conduit in South and St. Joseph 
streets; and the building of a house sewer in Gardner street, 
between the Metropolitan sewer and Baker street, both 
quicksand jobs.

Street Department — Sewer Division. 185 

In the case of Goldsmith brook conduit, a bed of quick- 
sand was encountered sixty feet deep below the grade of the 
conduit, and borings showed no stratum of gravel through 
which water could be pumped in order to dry out the quick- 
sand, and a novel expedient was resorted to ; that is, the 
sinking of tubular wells twenty to twenty-five feet below 
grade, surrounded by gravel, through which the water from 
the quicksand filtered to the well. The method adopted to 
accomplish this was first, to sink a 10-inch pipe by means of a 
water jet, then to place inside of it a 2i-inch pipe, perforated 
for about five feet at the bottom. This smaller pipe extended 
down to the bottom of the large pipe, the space between was 
then filled with coarse sand and the large exterior pi£e with- 
drawn, leaving the perforated pipe surrounded with coarse 
sand. The water which . filtered through was then pumped 
from the 2i-inch pipe by means of a steam ejector pump, 
placed at the bottom of the well, connected with a still smaller 
pipe in the interior of the 2£-inch pipe. 

This scheme proved successful, and the quicksand was 
dried out enough to enable the work to proceed. 

A complete sewerage system has been built in Perkins street 
and in LaGrange street, with an outlet in Pleasant street. 

Sewers or surface drains were also built in Bellevue ave- 
nue, Ashland and Rowe streets, and private land, Beech 
street, Belgrade avenue and Lorraine street, Colberg avenue, 
Congreve street, Corey and Park streets, Corinth, Dale, 
Eastbourne, Westbourne, Cornell and Forest Hills streets, 
Grosvenor road, Knoll street, Oakview terrace, Selwyn 
street, Stratford avenue, and Washington street. 

Surface drains should be built throughout the Mount Hope 
district, to relieve the congested condition of the sewers in 
times of storms. These sewers will outlet in the Roslindale 
branch of Stony brook, near its junction with the main 
brook. The Hewlett street branch of the Roslindale branch 
should be taken into a covered conduit from the South 
street culvert,, near the new playground, to Walter street, 
and a covered conduit should also be built from Clarendon 
avenue across Poplar street to the Sycamore street branch of 
Stony brook to take care of the watercourse which floods 
Poplar street, near Heathcote street. 

In order to provide the surface drainage for Rowe and 
Seymour streets a pipe surface drain should be built from the 
Neponset avenue branch of Stony brook, to and across the 
railroad location and longitudinally along the same "and 
thence to and through Seymour street. 



186 City Document No. 38. 

The Kirk street brook should be enclosed in a covered 
conduit from Kirk street to Centre street, and surface drains 
built in Farquhar, Fletcher, Congreve, Hewlett, Selwyn, 
Mozart, Walter and Mendum streets. 

In addition to the surface drainage work required in West 
Roxbury, the most important house sewers required at pres- 
ent are the following, which will probably be built during the 
ensuing year : 

Mendum street and outlet, Spring street, between Gard- 
ner and Centre streets, and outlet in Gardner street to Baker 
street, Elgin and Lorette streets, house sewers and surface 
drains, Montclair avenue and outlet, Sigourney street and 
Selwyn street. 

Charlestown. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
870.84 linear feet of pipe sewers and 1,410.63 linear feet of 
brick sewers, making a total of 2,281.47 linear feet, or .43 
mile, besides extensive repairs. 

A supplementary, 3 feet 6 inches circular sewer, has been 
built in Cambridge street, between Sever and Craft streets. 
This work was necessitated on account of the raising of the 
grade on Cambridge street in order to abolish the grade cross- 
ing, and increases the capacity of the existing sewer between 
these points, which is too small to carry the storm flow. 
This sewer should be extended to Rutherford avenue, thence 
through Rutherford avenue and Mishawum street to the 
Beach street outlet, about 1,200 feet. 

Sewers have also been built in Arlington avenue and 
Beacham street, and are in progress on Alford street, on the 
Everett side of Mystic river. 

The Rutherford avenue sewer should be rebuilt from Cam- 
bridge street to the outlet near Dunstable street. 

The building of the sewers in the Beacham street district 
should also be carried on, including Beacham, Dorrance, 
Hamblen, Ford, West, George, Gilbert and Temple streets, 
and a connection should be made with the Metropolitan 
sewer in Arlington avenue. 

The sewers in Tibbetts Town way and in Tufts street are 
in poor condition and should be rebuilt. 

There is also needed a sewer in Concord street, from 
Monument square to Bunker Hill street. 

The Warren avenue connection with the Metropolitan 
sewer should be completed. Part of this was built some 
two years ago, but, as at that time the Charles River avenue 
bridge was blockaded as far as traffic was concerned, it was 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 187 

absolutely necessary to leave the Warren avenue bridge open 
and as unobstructed as possible. 

At the present time the new Charlestown bridge having 
been completed and open to traffic, it will cause compara- 
tively little inconvenience to people, travelling to and from 
this part of Charlestown, to close Warren avenue while put- 
ting in this connection, which probably would not occupy 
over a month. 

City Proper. 

There have been built in this district the past year 
2,936.08 linear feet of pipe sewers and 1,295.21 linear feet 
of brick sewers, making a total of 4,231.29 linear feet, or .80 
mile, besides extensive repairs. 

The Canal street relief sewer is now completed. Its end 
is at the junction of Canal street and Traverse street. When 
this sewer was first designed, it was the intention to rebuild 
the Canal street sewer, between Traverse street and Cause- 
way street, and when this is done an improved connection 
will be established between the west side and east side 
intercepting sewers. 

The sewer in Beverly street, which is in much worse con- 
dition than the others in the district, is being rebuilt between 
Charlestown and Causeway streets, and will therefore fur- 
nish a second connection between the west side and east 
side intercepting sewers. 

The sewer in Haverhill street has recently been rebuilt. 
The material in which this sewer was rebuilt is of doubtful 
character, not soft enough to require piles, and yet not hard 
enough to build without the assistance of some artificial foun- 
dation. It was therefore decided to build into the side walls 
6-inch I beams, one over the other, with broken joints. 

In Commercial street, at Clark street, there is a wooden 
sewer which was in some way connected with tide-water. 
A great deal of salt water was let into the intercepting 
sewer. To remedy this difficulty the wooden sewer was cut 
off and abandoned as a sewer, although it can still be used 
as a catch-basin drain, a by-pass having been built around 
the tide*gate manhole to the overflow sewer. The houses 
which were connected with this sewer have been connected 
with the intercepting sewer, this being a departure from the 
customary rules of the Division and allowed; first, because 
this section of the intercepter is above the district regulator, 
and second, because if a new sewer were built to take the 
place of the old one it would have to lay alongside of, and 
almost against, the intercepting sewer and eventually dis- 



188 City Document No. 38. 

charge directly into it. For these reasons it was thought 
better to make the exception, and a new tide-gate was built 
to take the place of the old leaky one on the overflow. 

Oak Street. — The old sewer between Hudson and Albany 
streets, which was badly settled, has been rebuilt. 

Stillman Street. — The old sewer between Endicott and 
North Margin streets, which was badly settled, has been 
rebuilt. 

TJtiea Street, between Kneeland and Beach Streets. — The 
old sewer was in very bad condition and needed rebuild- 
ing for a number of years. This has finally been done, and 
is one of the most difficult jobs of its kind that has been 
encountered for some time. The sewer in Kneeland street 
was too high to form an outlet for this sewer if laid low 
enough to drain the house drains, which had probably settled 
with the old sewer. It was therefore decided to build a 
length of the Kneeland street low level house sewer between 
South street and Utica street. For temporary purposes this 
has been connected with the Kneeland and South streets 
sewer, which is on the " combined system," but should be 
continued to the end of the sewer which connected with 
the intercepting sewer in the railroad yard, the end referred 
to being on the line of Atlantic avenue. 

Boylston Street, between Carver and Tremont Streets. — The 
building of the new theatre made it necessary to construct 
a new sewer in this street. This sewer is about 20 feet 
deep. 

Albany Street, at Osivego Street. — The regulator on the 
Oswego street sewer at this point and the connection with 
the intercepting sewer have been built. This is one of the 
last pieces of work necessary to complete what is known as 
" changing the South Cove system." 

East BrooMine Street, between Harrison Avenue and James 
Street. — The sewer in this street was in very bad condition. 
It has been rebuilt. This sewer furnishes an outlet to a 
private drain from the Conservatory of Music, the poor out- 
let of which caused much annoyance. 

Pleasant Street, at Porter Street. — Where the elevated rail- 
way structure crosses Pleasant street at Porter street* the rail- 
road construction made it necessary to place a siphon in the 
sewer. As at some future time it is intended to carry the 
Kneeland street low-level house sewer into the Church street 
district, through Pleasant street, it was decided to lay the 
new pipes, which now form a siphon, at such a grade that the 
pipe which is to form the house sewer will be drained by the 
Kneeland street sewer, while the surface drain, which will find 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 189 

its outlet through the Church street district, will always 
remain as a siphon. 

Sewers have also been built in Eastern avenue, Poplar, 
Congress, Newland and Commercial streets, and Trinity 
place. 

The principal work of the Division in the City Proper for 
the ensuing year will be the repairs and reconstruction of old 
sewers, which on account of settlement or decay have become 
unfitted for their purpose. There are a large number of sewers 
in the North End district which are in such condition as 
to -offer practically a free entrance of tide-water into the 
sewerage system, and these should be replaced with sewers 
of modern design at as rapid a rate as possible, in order to 
relieve the intercepting sewers and the pumping station from 
this amount of leakage as well as from a sanitary standpoint. 

Main Drainage Works. 

The principal innovation in the organization of the force, 
charged with the maintenance of this most important branch 
of our public works, has been in the combination of the dis- 
tricts including the Moon Island Reservoir with its appurte- 
nances, Dorchester B&j Pumping Station, and the main and 
intercepting sewers and the maintenance of the channels of 
Stony brook under a single superintendent, responsible to the 
deputy superintendent of the Division ; these various works, 
of necessity depending one upon the other for their efficient 
operation, w 7 ere formerly each under independent supervision, 
and the placing of responsibility for any lack of co-operation 
was impossible. This change has greatly increased the 
efficiency of these branches of the service. 

This work at present consists of the care and maintenance 
of the main and intercepting sewers throughout the City, 
pumping station and deposit sewers at Calf Pasture, Dor- 
chester, and the reservoir and outfall and discharge sewers at 
Moon Island, Pumping Station at Lyons street, Dorchester, 
and the maintenance of the channels of Stony brook. 

Main and Intercepting Sewers. 

The work of the main and intercepting sewer force consists 
of the building, repairing and cleaning of all tide-gates, regu- 
lators, sumps and overflows connecting with the Metropolitan 
sewers in Brighton, Charlestown, East Boston and Dorches- 
ter, as well as the similar connections with the main drainage 
works in the City Proper, Roxbury and South Boston, and 



190 City Document No. 38. 

the cleaning of the main and intercepting sewers belonging 
to the City, and care of manholes on same. 

The following shows the number of gates, regulators, 
sumps and overflows that have to be inspected after every 
storm or heavy rise of sewage in the main sewer, and cleaned 
when necessary. 

Gates. Regulators. Sumps. Overflows.

The length of sewers to be inspected and attended to by 
this force in the City is twenty-four (24) miles. 

The following is an account of the work done from Febru- 
ary 1, 1900, to January 31, 1901 :

An automatic sewer gauge has been set up at the yard on 
Massachusetts avenue, to record the height of the sewage in 
the main sewer. 

Eight other automatic gauges have been built, and they will 
be installed during the ensuing year in different places upon 
the branch intercepting sewers tributary to the main drainage 
system. The installing of these gauges will greatly facilitate 
the work of the Division in locating the source of any undue 
flow of water in the sewers. 

Self registering tide-gauges will be installed at Moon 
Island, and at some point in the Charles river basin. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 191 

Pumping Station, Calf Pasture. 

The extensive repairs and alterations on the high duty 
pumps, and other work which has been going on for two 
years, are nearly completed, and it will now be possible, 
except in times of storm, to handle the sewage without run- 
ning the low duty pumps. This will make a marked saving 
in coal consumption. 

It will be necessary to start without delay the construction 
of the addition to the main building for the accommodation 
of the new 72,000,000-gallon pump that is under construc- 
tion. New quarters for the machine shop will have to be 
provided, and the shop should be in operation before a start 
is made in setting up the new pump. 

The deposit sewers are more nearly free from sludge than 
at any time since the system has been in operation. A day 
force only is required at present to keep them in such con- 
dition. 

On February 1, 1900, there was in the deposit sewers 
3,627 cubic yards of sludge ; during the year there has 
been removed 13,242 cubic yards, and there is at present 
only 290 cubic yards in the sewers. 

Other methods for handling this sludge will have to be 
adopted in the near future in order that the deposit sewers 
and the reservoirs at Moon Island may be utilized to their 
fullest capacity. Studies of such a system and plans for 
necessary apparatus have been made, and a beginning will be 
made during the ensuing year on necessary changes. 

The following principal repairs and alterations have been 
made during the year : 

Completion of Contract " F " covering extensive altera- 
tions on Leavitt engines, increasing their daily pumping 
capacity 16,000,000 gallons each. 

New reheaters and new oiling gallery on Leavitt engines. 

New valve chests and rods on Worthington engines and 
general repairs. 

New circulating pump for supplying salt water to conden- 
sers of Worthington and Leavitt engines. 

General repairs on piping. 

New heating apparatus installed for engine-room and 
repairs to engine deck plates. 

New jacket piping and returns to boilers from No. 3 and 
No. 4 engines. 

New blow-off pipes and side and bottom manholes to 
boilers. 

Rebuilding crematory for filth hoist screenings. 



192 City Document No. 38. 

Many minor repairs have been made, and the plant is now 
in a fair condition of efficiency, but many other minor repairs 
will be necessary to put it in first-class condition. 

The usual table showing the work done by the Pumping 
Station plant has been omitted from this report, as it seems 
to me that the methods used in determining the results given 
during previous years have been too crude to be reliable, and 
that the amount of sewage pumped by the plant has been 
largely overestimated. Reservoir measurements at Moon 
Island seem to show that the present dry weather flow 
through the Pumping Station does not greatly exceed 
75,000,000 gallons per day of 24 hours. 

Lyons-Street Pumping Station. 

At this station, besides the regular maintenance, the fol- 
lowing work has been done : 

Boilers and steam piping insulated ; one new driving belt 
put in, and old one repaired ; general repairs on inspirator, 
and feed-piping and gas-piping installed. Building has been 
ventilated and structures on the premises painted. 

Moon Island. 

Besides the regular maintenance of these works, which 
Consists of the storing and discharging the sewage of the 
City, twice daily, and the ordinary repairs incidental thereto, 
the following work has been done : 

Completion of original contract for extension of reservoir. 

Setting up of four gates and rams on flushing sewer. 

Installation of air compressor, tank, shafting, etc. 

Extension of gate-house for machine shop. 

Paving of slope on south-westerly side of island. 

Grading, sloping and loaming of surface west of reservoir. 

Filling of cove, slope paving, and grading near easterly 
corner of reservoir. 

Awarding of contract for four gate-houses on flushing 
sewer. 

The following new construction or renewals should be 
attended to as far as possible the coming season : 

New stable and storehouse. 

Electric wiring and piping. 

Fencing around reservoir. 

Relaying and extension of salt-water main for washing 
res ervoir*w alls. 

Filling for protection of portion of sea-wall and grading of 
high slope at Moon Island head. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 193 

Sea-wall from gate-house to wharf. 
Extension of wharf and dredging front of same. 
Relaying original riprap for at least 1,000 feet on north 
side of discharge sewer. 

Stony Brook. 

During the current year the following lengths of conduit 
have been built for the accommodation of Stony brook 
channels : 

1,018 linear feet of 15£ by 17 feet brick, main channel, end- 
ing at Cornwall street. 

1,225 linear feet 9 by 9% feet brick, supplementary chan- 
nel in Boylston avenue and Green street. 

1,018 linear feet of 2 by 3 i feet brick, West Roxbury 
low-level sewer. 

The 9 by 9£ feet supplementary channel of Stony brook is 
now connected with the old channel at Green street and will 
take the entire dry weather flow. As this is the portion of the 
flow of Stony brook which causes annoyance, we have gained 
by the building of this supplementary channel the practical 
advantages of extending the main channel to Green street. 
The appropriation for this work is exhausted. 

The work on the maintenance of Stony brook consists of 
the cleaning of the covered main channel of the brook, from 
the Back Bay Fens to Cornwall street, with the repairs of 
all manholes and manhole coverings on this section ; the 
cleaning of the open channel from Cornwall street to the 
Hyde Park line, and repairing all walls, banks, and fences ; 
the cleaning of the old overflow channel, from the premises 
of the Boston Belting Company to the Back Bay Fens, and 
the care of all overflows on above channels, making total of 
6? miles of watercourse to be cared for. 

The old Stony brook channel from the gate-house in the 
Fenway opposite Bryant street to the premises of the Boston 
Belting Company, on Elmwood street, is built of rubble 
stone ; part of the distance the construction being a double 
arch of dry rubble and part a double channel of square sec- 
tion, the sidewalks being loose rubble and the covering 
stone granite slabs. Both of these sections are in very 
precarious condition, the rubble arches being so loose that 
stones can be pulled out by hand from the inside. One 
or two cave-ins have occurred on this section, and when the 
Huntington avenue boulevard was built across it it was lined 
inside with brick masonry because it was unsafe to construct 
the street surface of the new boulevard over it. On the 



194 City Document No. 38. 

square section the granite covering stones are continually 
breaking in the middle, and have been replaced in many 
places with timber. In other places the stones have been 
shored up with timber bracing. It is feared that either one 
of these sections may collapse at any time, and cause serious 
and expensive accidents. This channel should be rebuilt 
throughout its entire length in order to be safe, and . at the 
time of rebuilding pipe sewers should be built on each side 
to take the drainage of abutting estates which are too low 
to drain into the existing sewers. Pollution unavoidably 
finds its way into this channel from these estates and will 
continue to do so until they are provided with proper 
sewerage. 

The estimated cost of rebuilding channel, together with 
pipe sewers, is $302,000. 

There are a number of places along the line of the brook 
where repairs are necessary to the walls and fences. This 
work should be done' as soon as possible after the frost 
leaves the ground in the spring. The need of these repairs, 
generally, is caused by the abutters raising the grade of their 
lots by filling. 

Entrance Fees, Permits, and Assessments. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $5,712.86 have been col- 
lected from estates upon which no sewer assessment was ever 
paid, in accordance with Chapter 38, Section 10, of the Re- 
vised Ordinances of 1898. 

Bills for sewer assessments, amounting to $617.36, have 
been deposited for collection, representing those estates 
assessed under Chapter 456 of the Acts of 1889, and amend- 
ments thereto, which have been connected during the year 
with the sewers for which they were assessed. 

Two thousand one hundred and seventy-six (2,176) per- 
mits have been issued to licensed drain-layers to make con- 
nections 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 accordance with the 
provisions of Chapter 38, Sections 6 and 10, of the Revised 
Ordinances of 1898. 

Eight hundred and nine (809) permits have been issued 
to District Foremen and Contractors for construction and 
repairs of sewers and catch-basins. 

Plans for the assessment of estates benefited by sewer 
construction have been furnished the Street Commissioners, 
representing 62,093 feet of sewers, costing $264,074.

General Remarks. 

The appropriation for the maintenance of the Sewer 
Division for the year was $350,000. This appropriation has 
had no substantial increase during the past ten (10) years, 
and during the present year the amount of work which 
could be completed for this sum has been substantially 
reduced by the passage of the eight-hour law, although in 
that time the amount of sewerage works to be maintained 
has been nearly doubled. If the present state of efficiency is 
to be maintained, the appropriation must, of necessity, be 
increased in the near future. 

During the year especial attention has been given to the 
cleaning of sewers and catch-basins, many of which were so 
filled as to seriously impair their usefulness. The result of 
such cleanings has already been made apparent by the decrease 
in the number of complaints received by the Division, as well 
as by the amount of sludge received in the deposit sewers 
at the Pumping-station. Improvements are still possible in 
this line, and the work should be continued during the next 
year. 

It will be seen that the amount of sewerage works built 
during the year as expressed in linear feet is somewhat 
smaller than for the last few years. The shortage is due to 
the following principal reasons: 

First. The excessive amount of large-size brick sewers 
and surface drains built. The rapid development of certain 
suburban districts, and the connection of the surface drainage 
with the house sewers, has overcrowded the sewers, with the 
result that many districts are flooded during every rainstorm. 

Such sewer systems should be relieved by the building of 
drains for surface water. The same effect is caused in old 
natural watercourses, and it has been the policy of the 
Division to apply as large an amount of the appropriations as 
possible to the construction of work for the relief of such 
cases. 

By reason of the liberal appropriation of $1,000,000 each 
year for sewers, a large proportion of the meritorious peti- 
tions for house sewers has been granted, and the sewers 
built, and in the future an increasing proportion of the 
annual amount will be available for the building of surface 
drainage structures, and the intercepting sewers necessary 
for connection with the various Metropolitan systems. 

The more meritorious cases have already been referred to 
in the district reports. 

Second. It is estimated that for the year the introduction 



196 City Document No. 38. 

of the eight-hour law has reduced the amount of linear feet 
of sewers which would have been built if the force had been 
on an nine-hour basis by about 6,200 linear feet, and that 
the amount of other structures has been reduced in the same 
proportion. The effect of the eight-hour law has been to 
reduce the value of the work done under the appropriation 
of the Sewer Division by an amount which is estimated to be 
approximately $18,000. 

Third. The largely increased expenditures for land tak- 
ings, construction work at Moon Island, and payments on 
pumping machinery now under contract, have greatly reduced 
the appropriation available for building sewers the present 
year. 

The Metropolitan Sewerage Commission is now actively 
engaged in building a high-level sewer to accommodate por- 
tions of Roxbury, West Roxbury, Dorchester, and Brighton. 
When this is done and put in operation, the City of Boston 
will be assessed its portion of the cost (the assessment being 
based upon the territory which is figured as tributary to the 
high-level sewer). Before this territory can be drained into 
the high-level sewer a large amount of work must be done 
in building the necessary branch intercepting sewers, and, 
properly, these sewers should be completed and ready to be 
put into operation at the same time as the Metropolitan 
Sewer, otherwise the City will pay for service which it does 
not receive, as was the case in regard to East Boston and 
Charlestown, where the City had to pay its assessment for a 
number of years while receiving no benefit from the North 
Metropolitan Sewer, and is at present paying for connections 
for sewers which are not yet built, the fault being the City's 
own in not completing its connections. Work should be 
begun on these tributary high-level intercepters the coming 
year. There will be required 67,500 feet, being 12.8 miles 
of sewers, ranging in size from twelve inches to five feet in 
diameter. 

A rough estimate of the cost of construction of this 
system of sewers is $1,484,500, or in round numbers 
$1,500,000, exclusive of land damages. 

Respectfully yours, 

Guy C. Emerson, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT 
OF THE STREET CLEANING DIVISION. 



921, 922, 923 Tkemont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1901. 
Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the annual report of 
the expenditures, income, and operation of the Street Clean- 
ing Division of the Street Department for the financial year 
ending January 31, 1901. 

Consideration should be given to the fact that the en- 
forcement of the eight-hour law during the year has entailed 
an additional expense of about $27,000 on the Division; 
there has been employed on full time throughout the year, 
nevertheless, an average force of about three hundred and 
fifty men whose combined salaries and wages represent about 
70% of the total amount of money expended during that 
period for all purposes. The result of this additional ex- 
pense is shown to some extent by the tables which follow. 

In March last the repair-shops at the South End yard 
were abolished ; the shops of the Sanitary Division, adjacent, 
having been increased in capacity by the installation of 
electric power and introduction of many improvements, now 
perform all the work formerly done by both Divisions at this 
point at a considerable saving to the City. 

The method of sweeping the business sections at night 
prevailed for some years after the establishment of this 
Division and was satisfactory in its operation, but for some 
unknown reason machine sweeping was discontinued in the 
West and North Ends in September, 1898, and the system 
of night sweeping, instead of being extended, as its merits 
would warrant, was practically abandoned. Convinced, after 
studying this feature of the work, that this method gave the 
best results, and caused the least inconvenience to the public, 
it has been substituted for day work and for hand-sweeping, 



Street Department — Street Cleaning Division. 203 

except by a patrol system, which is established to augment 
its efficiency. Streets throughout the entire street-cleaning 
territory are now machine swept by night, except under 
extraordinary conditions of temperature and weather. Patrol 
districts in consequence have been somewhat enlarged, 
since the patrolman finds his street clean for him in the 
morning, and it is only necessary that he bend his energy to 
keeping it in that condition during the day. With the ex- 
tension of the patrol system during the coming year, as 
intended, the most satisfactory results for the amount of 
money expended will be obtained. 

While there was some complaint made upon the establish- 
ment of this system by those whose conservatism remon- 
strates against what they are pleased to call a novelty and 
innovation, such complaints have now entirely ceased, and 
the public is, I think, satisfied that the method employed is 
for the greatest good of the greatest number. 

Among the many problems which vex this Division there 
is none, perhaps, more difficult of solution than the preven- 
tion of the nuisance of paper-littered streets. No matter 
how well machines or push-cart men may broom a street sur- 
face and clean it of all that which is unsanitary, it presents 
an unsightly appearance if papers or rubbish of a similar 
character be thrown upon it. While it is apparently im- 
possible for the police force to prevent the violation of the 
ordinances by the sweeping of house litter into the street, it 
is especially annoying to note the average citizen throwing 
his newspaper, empty boxes, and fruit peelings upon its 
surface, and this too in the presence of, or, at least, within the 
knowledge of, those whose duty it is to see that the City 
Ordinances are respected. There certainly is sufficient law 
to prevent this annoyance, and the remedy is in the hands of 
the Board of Police to apply ; the duty of this Department, 
then, is to minimize as far as possible this annoyance, and to 
this end the paper patrol system has been organized and ex- 
tended. A marked improvement at once followed its in- 
troduction, and although the cost of teaming thereby caused 
is in excess of that of previous years, the results have been 
commensurate, and the system should be still further ex- 
tended. 

In this connection, permit me to remind you of the 
ordinance you suggested for consideration to the City 
Council last October. To quote your language : " The 
Street Cleaning Division of this Department suffers expense 
and great annoyance because of the paper blown from open 
barrels upon its newly clean surfaces. I would suggest " (you 



204 City Document No. 38. 

wrote) "that the Law Department prepare an ordinance which 
shall enable us to enforce the following rule : ' All papers, 
light waste, and other general refuse, must be placed in 
covered receptacles, separate from those used for the ashes 
and offal, or, if too bulky, must be tied in bundles, to prevent 
their being scattered, and must be protected from the weather 
until collected.' " The ordinance was drafted and the mat- 
ter referred to the Committee on Public Improvements, 
where I trust it does not lie buried. If so, I hope it will be 
resurrected ; for it is indisputable that much of the litter 
that fouls our streets comes from the barrels that are placed 
upon the sidewalks by storekeepers. 

The force, which was established in East Boston immedi- 
ately before I took charge of the Division has been slightly 
increased, and employed on full time during the year. This 
district was formerly visited twice a week by the Charles- 
town gang. It now receives similar care to other sections of 
the City, at a cost of about $12,000. A new stable has just 
been opened, which accommodates the Sanitary, Paving, Sewer 
and Street Cleaning Divisions, and under this improved con- 
dition of things better results for the ensuing year are 
anticipated. 

The work of the patrol, or push-cart men, has been already 
alluded to, and recommendation is made that this branch of 
the service, whose merits have long ago been fitly recognized, 
should be extended. There have been considerable additions 
to this force during the year and, in nearly every instance 
the men employed were all young and active. 

It will soon become a question where the City may deposit 
its street sweepings. Many of the extensive low lands have 
been filled in; and in the suburban districts dependence is 
largely placed upon the owners of private property. The 
Charlestown dump will soon cease to be available, and the 
dumping scow at Fort Hill Wharf is not always able now to 
take all refuse carted to it; the teams have frequently 
had to leave the wharf and resume their haul, sometimes to a 
distant dump, and at increased expense. 

Much misunderstanding between this Division and abut- 
ters on public alleys, regarding their care, developed during 
the early part of the year. The Public Alley Act of 1898 
provided for the construction of these alleys by the Superin- 
tendent of Streets, and assessment of the cost thereof upon the 
abutters, but especially provided that — 

" Chap. 298, 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 



Street Department — Street Cleaning Division. 205 

keep the same free from any substance which is liable to 
cause sickness or a nuisance. 

" 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." 

Abutters seemed to be of the opinion that, notwithstanding 
the provisions of this Act, above quoted, they were at liberty 
to throw into the alley all kinds of house and store refuse, 
and that it was the duty of this Division to remove the same. 
The Act does not even place the duty of removing substances 
liable to cause sickness or a nuisance upon this Division, but 
by arrangement with the Board of Health this Division 
assumed the performance of this work. 

The public alley does not have the same standing in law 
as the public highway, and the duties of this Department 
toward it are not the same. It is now, after construction, to 
all intents and purposes a private way, repairs to which, and 
removal of snow and ice from which, the City does not 
assume, but agrees only to keep it in a healthful condition. 

There is imperative need of more and better stable facil- 
ities in the West End and Roxbury districts, which can only 
be obtained, in the West End particularly, by the construc- 
tion of new City stables upon a comprehensive plan, occupy- 
ing to advantage the land which is now covered with small 
stables, barns and sheds. 

The property of this Division, rolling stock especially, is 
in excellent condition. 

Respectfully yours, 

Frank H. Haynes, 

Deputy Superintendent.

REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT 
OF THE STREET WATERING DIVISION. 



904^905 Tremont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the annual report of 
the Street Watering Division of the Street Department for 
the financial year ending January 31, 1901. 

Public streets have been watered during the past year 
under authority given in the Legislative Acts of 1897, chap- 
ter 419. 

The work of the year has but one precedent for com- 
parison, 1899, the only other year in which all public streets 
were watered under the assessment law by districts. The 
assessments, as made in 1899, were found to be inequitable 
in the division of the districts, and in the rates charged. 
Changes were made accordingly in district lines, and the 
rate of assessment was increased in the City Proper, Back 
Bay, and South End, and decreased in all other sections of 
the City. The results have shown that the assessment by 
the districts of the past year is as nearly equitable as it 
seems possible to make such a system of taxation. 

The special tax for street watering is justly unpopular, 
because of the inherent difficulty in the just apportionment of 
such a tax. Admittedly street watering is a necessary pub- 
lic service for the health and comfort of the people. It is 
also good municipal economy, in that it preserves the road- 
beds of the streets. The expense should be paid, however, 
from the general tax levy, and the fact that the Board of 
Aldermen has adopted the recommendation of the Mayor 
and ordered the watering of the streets at the public expense 
shows general agreement in this view of the question, and 
makes further reference to the subject of assessment for this 
service unnecessary. 

The season of 1900 opened early, and was very dry until 
the middle of September. Carts were employed in the Back 
Bay on March 9, and in all parts of the city April 1. The 
regular season did not close until November 15, and some 



214 City Document No. 38. 

carts were worked in the Back Bay and South End until 
December 9. Cold weather prevented regular service after 
that date, but occasional watering was done until January 9, 
1901. 

The total miles of streets watered was 450, and the num- 
ber of carts employed in the work was 234. This was an 
increase of 36^ miles in streets, and an increase of three in 
the number of carts over last year. The hours of labor were 
reduced from nine to eight, as compared with the working 
day of 1899. 

The work was supervised by 23 tallymen, who received 
then instructions from the Deputy Superintendent each 
morning before working the carts ; their earnest and efficient 
work was appreciated, and it would seem to warrant the claim 
that the bicycle-tallyman service is the best method yet 
adopted for the supervision of street watering. 

There are in use about 500 standpipes, located at con- 
venient distances, and maintained by this Division. From 
them water is taken also by the Paving Division, the Street 
Cleaning Division, and the Park Department. The estimated 
amount of water used for street watering during the past 
year was 483,337,300 gallons. The standpipes were kept in 
excellent condition. In addition to painting them, the cart 
stand at 130 of them was paved this year, and in the City 
Proper, most of the posts were fitted with a swivel joint, so 
that the arm may be swung parallel to the curb when not 
in use. Many arms have been broken by high loaded teams, 
and this improvement was designed to prevent such occur- 
rences. It has been the endeavor to make the standpipes as 
unobjectionable as possible to abutters, by keeping them in 
good condition. 

Very few complaints were received during the season, 
which leads to the belief that the work was generally satis- 
factory, and that the Division is in efficient working order. 
Respectfully yours, 

Frederick Hammond, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Note. — Seventeen standpipes were transferred to the Park Department when it 
assumed care of such public ways as Commonwealth avenue. They were carried in 
the above table until this year. A census of the posts was taken during the year, and 
several errors in the list, as reported formerly, have been corrected. The tabulation 
for 1900 is accurate. During the past year 8 posts were relocated, 3 posts abandoned, 
and 17 new posts erected. 

The Division is indebted to Mr. J. W. Smith, Local Forecast 
official, for daily weather reports.

APPENDIX H. 

REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS FOR THE 
BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE BRIDGES. 



Canal or Craigie's Bridge. 

New timbers were placed the whole length of the outer 
side of the draw, and a new sidewalk of two-inch plank laid 
on both sides of the draw for the entire length. Hard pine 
timbers were placed on draw pier, and the surface was covered 
with two-inch plank. 

The end of the draw on the Boston side was in bad con- 
dition, and iron plates were placed under the bearing of the 
wheels and new timber put in where necessary. The draw 
and its timber support will have to be rebuilt in a few years. 
It requires a close inspection at all times to keep it in place 
and to avoid accidents. The travel over this bridge by 
teams is increasing, some carrying very heavy loads ; there 
are about ten thousand a day. The draw being so very 
narrow, cars and teams cannot pass over it together, and at 
times a blockade is thus created, especially after the draw 
is opened. 

The timber and flooring on the pier at the rear of the draw- 
tender's house is so much decayed that it will have to be re- 
placed next summer. 

Next year part of the roadway at each end of the bridge 
will have to be repaired, and the draw and fences will need 
painting. The drawtender and assistants keep the draw 
and draw pier free from ice and snow, sweep the sidewalks 
and make all ordinary repairs on machinery, etc. 

Harvard Bridge. 

In April and May of this year the roadway for the entire 
length of the bridge and draw was newly sheathed with two- 
inch spruce plank, planed on one side to an even thickness. 
While doing this work the Boston Elevated Railway Com- 



Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 219 

pany laid new rails, of a better kind than the old ones, the 
whole length of the bridge, and sheathed between the tracks 
and in the tracks. The work was done at night so as not to 
interrupt travel ; there was very little blockade and no acci- 
dents. The work of the company was very satisfactory and 
was quickly done. 

The four-inch planking of the deck under the sheathing 
on the roadway of the bridge was decayed in many places, 
and had to be renewed with new four-inch plank. This 
will have to be done yearly to keep it safe. Cost of sheath- 
ing the roadway was $3,187, Boston paying one-half. 
While doing the work the best of the old plank we saved, 
and stored on the pier to be used this winter for patching. 

Teams carrying heavy loads passing over the draw broke 
some of the timbers in the roadway ; these were replaced 
with new ones. 

A gale of wind that passed over the bridge, July 18, raised 
the asphalt sidewalk on the up-stream side of the bridge 
almost the whole length. It looked as if it would have to 
be taken up and a new sidewalk put in its place, which 
would cost over three thousand dollars ; it was afterwards 
decided to replace it, and fill the cracks and joints with 
cement. This was done by the drawtenders employed on 
the bridge. With care, it will last some years, or till such 
time as the flooring under it will have to be renewed. 

The sidewalks on the draw, and some of the timbers to 
support the same, were so much decayed that it was necessary 
to replace them with new material. New sidewalks were 
laid with hard pine plank, two inches thick, planed one side. 
Parts of the capping on the piers connected with the draw 
were renewed with hard pine timber. 

All the ironwork from the Boston end of the bridge to 
the draw has been scraped and thoroughly painted. It is 
now in good condition, and will last some years. The zinc 
cap and woodwork, outside of the fence the entire length of 
the bridge, has been painted. 

The traffic is increasing so fast, and so much heavy team- 
ing passes over the bridge, that it is necessary to clean it 
twice a week now instead of once. This bridge is of un- 
usual benefit to the cities of Boston and Cambridge, as it is 
in a beautiful location, and is much used in summer as a 
promenade. 

The drawtender and assistants do all ordinary repairs, 
look after the machinery to run the draw, clean the globes 
on the electric lights, clean the sidewalks and piers from snow 
and ice, and make all necessary repairs. 



220 City Document No. 38. 



Prison Point Bridge. 

A house, 12 by 14 feet, one story high, fitted up with 
bunks, etc., was built for the drawtenders to occupy. Four- 
inch plank were put on bridge and draw and it was sheathed 
over all with 2-inch plank; painted house inside and outside 
by labor of the drawtenders. 

This bridge and draw is in such poor condition that it is a 
constant care to keep it safe for travel. There are a great 
many vehicles passing over it. It was feared at one time 
that it would have to be closed up ; to do so would be a great 
hardship to the teamsters, as they would have to go a mile or 
two out of their way to get to Charlestown. The Boston 
& Maine Railroad Company was notified last summer that 
the Cities of Boston and Cambridge would not be responsible 
for any accident that might occur because of its condition. 
The Boston & Maine Railroad Company is expected to 
commence work this summer on the overhead street and 
bridge, running from Bridge street, Cambridge, to Charles- 
town, to abolish the grade crossings. Before commencing 
work on the street the company will build a temporary bridge 
and draw further up stream. 

The drawtenders keep the bridge free from snow and ice 
in winter, at other times they sweep the bridge weekly and 
make all ordinary repairs. 

Temporary West Boston Bridge. 

The sheathing on this bridge was in such bad condition 
that it was necessary to replank the surface the entire length 
with 2-inch spruce plank. This will have to be done at least 
once each year, because of the narrowness of the bridge and the 
heavy teaming passing over it. The traffic over this bridge 
is increasing. The machinery for moving the draw is a 
great improvement over the power that was used to move the 
draw on the old West Boston bridge. 

The drawtender and assistants take care of the draw ma- 
chinery and keep it in good condition. They also remove 
snow and ice from the sidewalk and draw piers, and make all 
the necessary repairs. 

Cambridge Street Bridge. 

New deck planks were put in and the bridge and draw on 
Boston side sheathed; new caps were put on piers, piles 
spliced near draw, and the fender guard repaired with hard 



Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 221 

pine timber, and hard pine floors were laid in drawtender's 
houses. The houses were painted inside and outside by the 
drawtenders. They also sweep the bridge once a week, and 
keep the bridge and piers free from snow and ice in winter, 
and keep the machinery in good running order, and make all 
ordinary repairs. 

Essex Street Bridge. 

The roadway was sheathed on both sides where necessary 
with 2-inch plank ; on the draw pier new caps were placed 
and the pier was covered with 2-inch plank. 

The drawtenders sweep the bridge once a week, and make 
all ordinary repairs. 

North Harvard Street Bridge. 

A small building, 6 by 6 feet to hold coal, was built, and 
the drawtender's house was sheathed inside and shingled ; new 
windows and doors were put in and a new floor laid ; the 
roof and inside and outside of house was painted ; the bridge 
and draw sheathed ; all the fence on bridge and draw 
painted ; and the bridge cleaned once a week. This work 
was done by the drawtenders on the bridge, who also made 
other repairs, without additional expense to the two cities. 

Western Avenue Bridge. 

New deck plank were put on the bridge and draw where 
necessary, and the whole sheathed with two-inch plank. The 
draw piers were repaired, and new ringbolts were secured to 
the pier for vessels to fasten to. This bridge is cleaned once 
a week, and all ordinary repairs are made by the draw- 
tenders. The drawtenders employed to take care of this 
bridge also have the care of Cambridge-street bridge. 

In General. 

The usual statement is appended showing the number of 
draw openings and the number of vessels which passed 
through. 

The amount of revenue received for rents, dockage, etc., 
during the year, has been $784.70; one-half of which has 
been paid to each city.

Street Department — Smoke Inspection.. 237 



APPENDIX J. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF SMOKE INSPECTOR. 



64 Pembeeton Square, Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir, — I herewith submit a report of the work per- 
formed under chapter 389, Acts of 1895, section 116 ; chapter 
175, Acts of 1897 ; and section 99, chapter 47, Revised 
Ordinances, 1898, relative to the smoke nuisance in this City. 

The emission of dark or thick gray smoke for more than 
five minutes continuously, constituting what is technically 
called the smoke nuisance, causes great inconvenience to 
modern city dwellers. The causes of this nuisance are few 
and the remedies comparatively simple. The chief cause is 
ignorance, — either in the construction of the building or 
plant, or in the purchase of the proper coal for fuel, or, as is 
most frequently the case,, on the part of stokers or firemen in 
charge of the plant. Very few persons wilfully or intention- 
ally violate the law, and in the majority of cases it is only 
necessary to bring the matter properly before them to have 
the remedy applied. The chief value of this Department in 
the City of Boston is as an instructor, in pointing out defects 
existing in any plant and suggesting the proper method for 
relief. Nearly all the owners of large plants called upon 
during the past year have shown a decided willingness to 
assist in correcting all defects and in issuing instructions to 
their engineers in charge. 

The following instructions for firing, prepared by this 
Department, have been largely distributed and proved of 
value. 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FIRING BOILERS WITH BITU- 
MINOUS COAL. 

1. All large coal should be broken up so that the largest 
pieces are no greater than a man's fist. 

2. Begin to charge the furnace at the bridge end, and keep 
firing to within a few incbes of the dead plate. 



238 City Document No. 38. 

3. Never allow the fire to burn so low, before a fresh charge 
is thrown in, that there shall not be at least three to four inches 
depth of clean incandescent fuel on the bars, and equally spread 
over the whole grate. 

4. Keep the bars constantly covered, particularly at the sides 
and bridge end where the fuel burns away most rapidly. 

5. If the fire burns unequally, or in holes, the vacant spaces 
must be filled up. 

6. Under ordinary conditions the thickness of fire will vary 
from four to eight inches for different amounts of draught and rate 
of combustion. The best thickness to carry must be determined 
for each case, bearing in mind, however, that a very thick fire is 
conducive to smoke production. 

7. The greatest preventive of smoke is frequent firing of 
small quantities on alternate sides of the furnace. 

8. With a battery of boilers, one boiler must be fired at a 
time on one side of the furnace only, then the next boiler in the 
same manner, and so on to the end ; then beginning again with 
the first boiler, fire the other side of the furnace, and so on down 
through the battery. 

9. If there is no other means of admitting air than through 
the grate and at the fire door, the register in the fire door should 
be left open after firing, and if the boilers are forced it should be 
left open all the time. 

10. With a shallow ash-pit the ashes should be removed fre- 
quently to allow free inlet for air and to prevent burning the 
grates . 

In addition to complaints of smoke from buildings, several 
have been received of violation of the law from portable 
boilers used by contractors in building construction. This 
was caused by the use of soft coal for fuel, and in all cases a 
change to hard coal brought immediate relief. 

Several unusually large plants, either recently established 
or in process of construction, have been inspected, notably 
the Back Bay Station of the New York, New Haven & Hart- 
ford Railroad Company at Dartmouth street, and the Edison 
Electric Illuminating Company on Atlantic avenue, both of 
which are not only equipped with all modern appliances for 
furnishing power, but also for the relief of smoke nuisance. 

It is perhaps well to state in this connection, that in large 
plants of this character complaint is often received of viola- 
tion of the smoke law. This is not due to wilfulness or 
ignorance, but to an endeavor on the part of managers to 
obtain the best as well as the most economical methods of 
construction and operation. In no other way except by 
experiment can this be demonstrated. Many appliances are 
tried and found defective, and it is the change from one 



Street Department — Smoke Inspection. 239 

method to another, either of construction or operation, which 
occasions the variation in the amount of smoke. 

During the year, 285 short observations, of two or three 
hours, have been taken by the inspectors in the several dis- 
tricts. Twelve observations, of from five to eight hours, 
were taken in the business section of the City ; four of these 
not as the result of complaints, but at the request of the 
owners of the property; two of whom, the R. H. White 
Company and the Oliver Ditson Company, have, as the 
result of the examinations, equipped their boilers with smoke 
consumers. 

The Back Bay district has received special attention. All 
of the large hotels and the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, Boston Public Library and other buildings operating 
large steam plants have been thoroughly inspected. Many of 
them, notably the Public Library, were equipped with smoke- 
consuming devices. Where these were lacking they have 
either been supplied or are still subjects of investigation. 

As the result of my observations throughout the city, I 
believe the laws governing and regulating the smoke nuisance 
should be made more stringent, and more nearly in accord 
with those in force in other cities, particularly by reducing 
the five-minute limit to two minutes.

REPORT OF THE CIVIL SERVICE CLERK. 



Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Mr. B. T. Wheeler, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith a report of the work per- 
formed in connection with the Civil Service Commission, 
together with a statement of the force employed and eligible 
for employment for the year ending January 31, 1901. 

Two hundred and seventy-five applications were made upon 
the Commission for 2,012 men of various grades, and of this 
number 9 were for promotion and 7 for reinstatement. 

Three thousand one hundred seventy-five names were sub- 
mitted, from which 478 were selected and appointed, 50 of 
whom were veterans, and 38 were appointed provisionally 
under Civil Service Rule 36. 

Of the 9 applications for promotions all were granted. 

One hundred and six transfers were made from other City 
and State Departments, with the approval of the Civil Ser- 
vice Commission, as follows : 

One was from the Bath Department, 54 from Park Depart- 
ment, 15 from the Department of Public Grounds, 12 from 
the Engineering Department, 10 from the Public Buildings 
Department, 9 from Water Department, 2 from Transit 
Commission, 2 from Metropolitan Park Commission, and 1 
from the Pauper Institutions Department. 

Notices of the discharge of 160 men were forwarded to 
the Civil Service Commission. 

The records of the Department show that there are now 
3,196 persons eligible for employment in the several divisions, 
and of that number 3,008 were upon the January, 1901, pay- 
rolls.
