ANNUAL REPORT 



STREET DEPARTMENT 



yOR THE 



YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1909. 



Boston, February 1, 1909. 

Hon. George A. Hibbard, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

Sir, — In compliance with the Revised Ordinances, the 
annual report of the operations and expenses of the Street 
Department for the year ending January 31, 1909, is herewith 
respectfully submitted. 

Organization. 

The work of the department has' been carried on during the 
year according to the reorganization created by chapter 3 of 
the Ordinances of 1908. The present organization is similar 
to that established in 1891 and amended in 1895, except that 
the then existing Lamp Department is now a division of the 
Street Department. The several divisions of the department 
are as follows: 



Central Office, 
Bridge Division, 
Ferry Division, 
Lamp Division, 
Pa vine Division, 



Sanitary Division, 
Sewer Division, 
Street Cleaning and 

Watering Division, 
Boston and Cambridge 

Bridges. 



2 City Document No. 38. 

Note. — The Boston and Cambridge Bridges Division, so 
called, is not properly a division of the Street Department, as 
this work is in charge of a commission of two, one member 
appointed by the Mayor of Boston and the other by the Mayor 
of Cambridge, under the provisions of chapter 467 of the Acts 
of 1898 and chapter 412 of the Acts of 1904; but on account 
of the fact that the present Superintendent of Streets is the 
Boston member of this commission and also because one-half 
of the expenses of this commission is defrayed from the 
appropriation for the Bridge Division of this department, it 
is here treated as a division of this department. 



Appropeiations. 

The money assigned for the work of the Street Depai 'ment 
during the year was made available from the following 
sources: 

First. — Maintenance appropriation, derived from the in- 
come of the city raised by taxation. Before the commence- 
ment of each financial year, February 1, the department 
estimates of the amounts necessary for the proper maintenance 
of the various divisions are submitted to the -Mayor, who 
makes such recommendation as he may deem proper to the 
City Council. The maintenance appropriations, as passed 
by the City Council and approved by tile Mayor, were as 
follows : 
Central Office

General Remarks. 

The department has been conducted during the year along 
the lines estabhshed during previous years. The policy of 
doing the work of maintenance and repairs by the day labor 
force has been continued, and, in general, new construction 
has been done by contract. Efforts have been made to 
economize along certain lines, and some reduction has been 
made in the labor force. Analysis of the work done shows 
a greater amount of work performed by the smaller force, at 
a lower price per unit, than by the larger force during the 



4 City Document No. 38. 

previous year. The result demonstrates conclusively that 
the employment of inefficient and incompetent men, with 
duties insufficient for regular employment, had resulted in a 
demoralization of the entire force and an expense beyond the 
actual compensation of the employees in question. It is 
prebably a fact that the efficiency of the average city laborer 
is considerably less than that of the average laborer in private 
employ. In comparing the cost of day labor work with that 
of contract Work, it should be taken into consideration that 
the city laborer is handicapped in the matter of efficiency by 
circumstances not altogether of his own making. Some of 
these are as follows: 

The working of the Civil Service law, notwithstanding its 
merits, places the department at a disadvantage by furnish- 
ing, in certain lines, men who, on account of age or lack 
of previous experience, are incompetent and inefficient. 
Especially is this true of that part of the law known as the 
''Veterans' Preference Act" ; and it is particularly unfortunate 
that men furnished under its provisions are usually of the 
grade of foremen, thereby lessening to a great degree the 
efficiency of the 'subordinates under them. 

The various executive orders regarding payment to be 
allowed for holidays reduces the working time of the force by 
about 10 J per cent, as compared with contract work, and 
entail upon the department a yearly expenditure of approxi- 
mately 1170,000 for which no service is rendered. The wages 
of city laborers average about 25 per cent above those paid 
by contractors for similar work, and entail a further excess 
cost of about $320,000 per year to the four divisions of this 
department employing a force of common laborers, viz., the 
Paving, Sanitary, Sewer and Street Cleaning Divisions. 

Some extension of the contract system has been made 
during the year, as follows : 

In the matter of hired teams, the petty patronage on this 
account had approached the condition of a nuisance. During 
the early part of the year, the department had upward of 
one thousand applications from persons wishing to furnish 
teams at the standard price of $6 per day. This price was 
considerably greater than that paid by outside parties, and it 
was determined to secure teams by open competition, with the 
result that the bills for teaming for the year have been reduced 
$144,035.98 from the amount paid during the preceding year, 
and this with a considerable increase in the amount of work 
done and without increase in the number of teams owned 
directly by the department. These contracts, which did not 
include watering carts, took effect between July 22 and 



Street Department. 5 

August 12, 1908, so that the saving given is only for the last 
six months of the year. It is intended to extend the contract 
system to the street watering service during the ensuing 
year. 

The contract system has also been extended, with consider- 
able success, to the matter of snow removal. It does not 
appear, however, that it is advisable to undertake the entire 
Work of snow removal by contract. As an auxiliary to the 
force of city teams the contract system has seemed at present 
to be desirable. 

In accordance with the recommendations of the Finance 
Commission, all the stone-crushers owned by the city have 
been sold or their services, otherwise dispensed with, and 
crushed stone has been secured by advertisement in the 
open market, resulting in a very material saving. 

The matter of cleaning catch-basins and sewers has been 
Undertaken by contract after public competition, and this 
has resulted in a considerable reduction in the cost of doing 
the work. 

In the Sanitary Division, the contract system has been 
extended to the collection of ashes in the East Boston and 
Brighton districts, with a saving of approximately 50 per 
cent of the cost of doing the work by day labor. 

The Lamp Division in all its branches has reverted to the 
contract system. 

An analysis of the figures given above indicates that the 
Street Department expends in certain ways a very large sum 
of money for a purpose that, for the need of a better word, 
may be designated as charity. It is worthy of serious con- 
sideration whether steps should not be taken to prevent the 
extension of the day labor system under present conditions 
and to allow the money expended under it to be economi- 
cally use:l for the benefit of the general public according to 
contract methods. With this end in view few additions to the 
labor service have been made during the past year, except in 
so far as it has been necessary to appoint new men in the 
clerical and engineering force to perform duties in connection 
with the day labor force already employed and with the 
contract work. 

The present report is made with the object of giving desir- 
able information in greater detail and with a greater regard 
to unit costs than has been presented in reports of recent 
years. While the result has been accomplished to some 
extent, it has been found impossible to give such information 
as completely as desired, owing to the fact that the accounts 
for the early portion of the year were in the same form as in 



6 City Document No. 38. 

previous years, and necessary data were therefore not avail- 
able. It is intended that the report for the ensuing year 
shall be more satisfactory in this respect. 

The following are some of the general details regarding the 
operation of the divisions constituting the Street Department. 
The appropriations; as given, include also revenues and, in 
the case of special appropriations, balances on hand February 
1, 1908. 



BRIDGE DIVISION. 

Appropriation and revenue . . . $200,595 00 
Expenditures 198,797 30 



Unexpended balance . ... . $1,797 70 

The appropriation for the Bridge Division has been devoted 
entirely to the maintenance and necessary general repairs by 
day labor methods. Many of the bridges are in need of 
extensive minor repairs, cleaning, painting, etc., and an 
increase should be made in the appropriation for the ensuing 
year, to allow this work to be done, after which, the usual 
appropriation should be ample for their maintenance in satis- 
factory condition. 



FERRY DIVISION. 

Appropriation and revenue . . . $225,044 85 
Expenditures 249,068 39 



Deficit $24,023 54 

In the Ferry Division, the work has been continued along 
the lines of former years. Some slight reduction and re- 
arrangement of the force has been made in the interests of 
economy and efficiency; but, in general, the organization 
remains the same. Increases of wages by executive order 
during 1907, coupled with the decreased appropriation for 
the past year, have rendered a curtailment of service necessaiy 
by dispensing with the service of one boat for a portion of 
the time. 

The contract for delivering coal from the coal pockets to 
the boats was let by public competition, instead of by the 
former method of giving this contract to a favored con- 
tractor without competition. The result has been a saving 
of $1,001.08 for the year. 



Street Department. 7 

Slight labor troubles developed early in the year on account 
of the demands of the engineer force for vacations or increases 
in salaries, resulting in an incipient strike on the part of the 
engineers and necessitating the discharge and replacement of 
the entire force. Since the discharge of this force, the con- 
ditions of service on the ferries have materially improved. 



LAMP DIVISION. 

Appropriation and revenue . . . $800,023 75 
Expenditures 809,510 06 



Deficit $9,486 31 

The appropriation for this division for the past year was 
materially reduced from that of the preceding year, and was 
somewhat exceeded, as shown above. 

A new contract for the gas lighting of the city was entered 
into with the Rising Sun Street Lighting Company for a 
period of one year, beginning September 15, 1908. Previous 
to this time, the work of maintenance was done directly by 
city laborers, the lamps being leased from the Rising Sun 
Street Lighting Company. This contract has resulted in a 
considerable economy over the previous method and in much 
more satisfactory service. 



PAVING DIVISION. 



street. 
Maintenance. Improvements. 



Appropriations and revenue . $863,565 09 $254,667 31 
Expenditures 833,981 43 177,566 28 



Unexpended balances . . $29,583 66 $77,101 03 

The expenditures for this division, except the expenditures 
on account of streets laid out under chapter 323 of the Acts 
of 1891, and amendments thereof, and a balance of about 
$5,000 remaining from the loan of 1907 for Street Improve- 
ments, have been entirely from appropriations from the tax 
levy. As has been the custom, the greater portion of this 
expenditure has been by day labor methods on account of 
maintenance and repairs. The remarks regarding the cause 
of the inefficiency of the city laborer probably apply more 
directly to this division than to any other division of the 
Street Department. The same is true of the remarks regard-

ing the excess paid for hired teams. Considerable increase 
of efficiency has been noted, and conditions are far more 
satisfactory at the present time. 

The percentage of macadam streets in the city is excessive, 
and the requirements of automobile traffic have made the 
question of maintenance a serious one. It can be mathe- 
matically demonstrated that a great saving could be made by 
placing suitable permanent pavement upon the greater por- 
tion of residential streets; and in the interests of economy 
steps should be taken as rapidly as possible to reduce the 
area of macadam pavement. 

During the year experiments have been made with various 
bituminous binders for macadam pavements, and it is antici- 
pated that different forms of bituminous macadam will be 
extensively laid during the ensuing year, replacing the present 
macadam pavements. 

A reduction has been made in the number of districts and 
district foremen by the combination of Districts 2 and 3 and 
of Districts 5 and 11, under one foreman in each case. Other- 
wise the organization remains the same as for previous years. 
Further combinations and reductions are anticipated during 
the ensuing year. 



SANITARY DIVISION. 

Appropriation and revenue . . . $750,329 00 
Expenditures . ... . . . 745,200 90 

Unexpended balance . . . . $5,128 10 

This division has shown the most gratifying increase in 
efficiency during the year of any division of the Street Depart- 
ment, although the appropriation was somewhat smaller than 
for the preceding year and the increase in the amount of 
work done was normal. The cost of doing the work has 
materially decreased, and the division finishes the year with 
a substantial surplus remaining from its appropriation. The 
division was perhaps more greatly overloaded with super- 
fluous employees than any other, and dispensing with the 
services of such employees, coupled with the increase in the 
size of the loads hauled and the amount of work done, has 
been responsible for the decrease in cost. As in the other 
divisions, the entire economy has been effected during the 
last eight months of the fiscal year; and conditions are such 
that during the ensuing year much greater economies will be

accomplished. Additions have been made to the working 
plant, and improved apparatus and a considerable number of 
teams purchased during the year. 

On account of the expiration of the contract with the City 
Refuse Utilization Company (which terminated on September 
15, 1908) for the disposal of city waste, and also because of 
the growing scarcity of inland dumps for the disposal of refuse, 
extensive investigations have been made during the present 
year, with the idea of finding in the near future a more accept- 
able method for the disposal of the city waste. Bids for 
incinerators for the disposal of a large part of the city refuse 
were asked for, but the returns were unsatisfactory, indica- 
ting a cost beyond an amount that could be reasonably con- 
sidered by the city at the present time. Investigations are 
still in progress, and it is hoped that some satisfactory 
general scheme may be outlined in the near future. 



SEWER DIVISION. 

Sewerage Separate 

Maintenance. Works. System. 

Appropriations and 

revenue . . . $352,142 14 $373,778 09 $831,597 47 
Expenditures . . 351,162 41 322,482 32 599,973 76 

Unexpended bal- 
ances . . $979 73 $51,295 77 $231,623 71 

This division has been conducted along the same lines as 
for previous years. The amount of the force has been some- 
what reduced, and the division finished the year within its 
appropriation and at a considerable reduction from the 
expenses of the previous year. 



STREET CLEANING AND WATERING DIVISION. 

Appropriation and revenue . . . $570,050 50 
Expenditures 573,955 81 

Deficit $3,905 31 

The appropriation for this division was materially reduced 
from those of previous years, and the division somewhat 
exceeded it. As the work of this division is more closely 
under observation by the public than that of any other and 
most nearly affects the comfort and convenience of the 



10 City Document No. 38. 

citizens, it is recommended that an increased appropriation 
be made for the ensuing year, in order that the work of the 
division may be extended. 

During the year, extensive experiments have been made 
with various dust-Iajdng compounds, and as a result the use 
of calcium chloride has been adopted to a considerable extent 
on suburban streets, and an emulsion of crude petroleum has 
been found most suitable upon streets where the traffic is 
considerable. These materials are greatly superior to water 
as dust preventatives, and although the oil emulsion has 
some disadvantages, they are more than compensated for by 
the advantages obtained. It is the intention to extend the 
use of these materials very greatly during the ensuing year. 

Beginning early in December, 1908, the force of the divi- 
sion was placed in uniforms, the regulation government khaki 
being adopted for the purpose. This change has resulted in 
greater neatness in the appearance of the force, and seems 
also to have been productive of increased efficiency. 



BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE BRIDGES. 

Appropriation — 

Expenditures .■ $18,524 29 

As has been the custom, the work of the Boston and Cam- 
bridge bridges has been directly under the charge of the 
Cambridge member of the commission, Mr. WUliam H. 
Joyce, and to him belongs in a great measure the credit for 
the very excellent work accomplished. 

No appropriation was made for this work during the year, 
and the expenditures given at the head of this paragraph 
were taken from the general appropriation for the Bridge 
Division, and are included under the expenditures given for 
that division. 

Following are appendices containing detailed reports and 
information regarding the conduct of the various divisions.

APPENDICES. 



APPENDIX A. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
BRIDGE DIVISION. 



Boston, Mass., February 1, 1909. 

Mr. Guy C. Emerson, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit herewith the annual 
report of the Bridge Division for the fiscal year ending 
January 31, 1909. 

There are in the City of Boston 163 bridges, not- including 
culverts. Seven of these, namely, Brookhne street, Cambridge, 
Cambridge street, Harvard, North Harvard street, Prison 
Point, and Western avenue to Cambridge, all connecting 
Boston and Cambridge, are in charge of two commissioners, 
one of whom is appointed by the Mayor of the City of Boston 
and the other by the Mayor of the City of Cambridge. The 
Charles River dam, on the site of the old Craigie Bridge, is in 
charge of the Charles River Basin Commission. One hundred 
and twenty-three bridges are supported wholly or in part by 
the City of Boston, twenty-seven of these being tide water 
bridges provided with a draw. Forty bridges are supported 
wholly by railroad corporations. 

There are fourteen important drawbridges maintained by 
the City of Boston, namely, Broadway, Chelsea (south). Con- 
gress street, L street, and Warren, operated by steam, 
Atlantic avenue, Charlestown, Chelsea (north), Dorchester 
avenue, Dover street. Maiden, Meridian .street, and Summer 
street, operated by electricity; and Northern avenue, operated 
by compressed air, the compressors run by electricity. 

Hearings have been held by the United States engineers 
regarding the removal of Mt. Washington Avenue Bridge, and 
it is anticipated that the United States authorities will require 
the removal of the structure of the old bridge in the near 
future. 

The Chelsea Street Bridge was destroyed in the Chelsea fire 
of April 12, 1908. A special appropriation has been provided, 
and a new bridge is now being built, under the supervision of 
the Engineering Department. 



22 City Document No. 38. 

The Northern Avenue Bridge was opened to travel October 
26, 1908, and the maintenance of this bridge will entail an 
expense of about $15,000 during the coming year. 

.The Congress Street Bridge has had extensive repairs both 
to the approaches and to the draw ; and the machinery operat- 
ing the draw has been overhauled and put in good order. The 
bridge is now in good condition, with the exception of the 
draw pier and fender guard. 

The Massachusetts Avenue Bridge over the Boston & 
Albany Railroad has been rebuilt during the past year, and 
the surface of the Everett Street Bridge, Brighton, has been 
renewed. 

Four hundred feet of the southerly end of the Cottage 
Street Footbridge, East Boston, has been removed, on account 
of the progress of the filling in of the flats on that end of the 
bridge. 

The sluiceway on the westerly side of the railroad bridge 
on Southampton street has been filled in solid. The easterly 
sluiceway is in very bad condition, and the bridge and bulk- 
heads should be rebuilt. 

The elimination of grade crossings in East Boston has 
added the Sumner Street Bridge and the Webster Street 
Footbridge (both over the Boston & Albany) to the bridges 
in charge of this division of which Boston maintains the 
wearing surface. 

The progress of the work on the Stony brook improvement 
has done away with the Linden Park street, Williams street, 
Keyes street, and Elmwood street bridges, which have been 
'arched over, and the street built over them. ' 

Many of the bridges are in very bad condition, and must 
have considerable attention during the coming year in order 
that they may be kept passable. On the Meridian Street 
Bridge, the roadway planking, water ways and pier are all in 
a very bad condition, and should be renewed. A new draw 
pier and draw landings should be built. As the repairs 
needed on this bridge are very extensive, a special appro- 
priation should be provided for the purpose. 

The Chelsea North Bridge will have to have special atten- 
tion during the coming year; the sidewalk on the main bridge 
should be renewed, and also the sidewalk and roadway plank- 
ing on the draw. The draw should have new machinery; the 
sides of the water ways and the fender guards should be 
removed; and the entire bridge should be painted. At least 
$5,000 Mil be required to put this bridge in any fair kind of 
condition. 



Street Department — Bridge Division. 23 

The entire Charlestown Bridge, together with the draw- 
tender's house, should be painted, which will mean an 
expenditure of about $8,500. 

The Huntington Avenue Bridge has been considered 
unsafe for heavy traffic for some time past. A special 
appropriation has been provided for this work, and the bridge 
will probably be rebuilt during the coming year. 

There is a bill in the Legislature providing for the con- 
struction of a new bridge at Neponset. The draw now in 
use is too heavy to operate by hand, and the bridge is 
so old that it would not be economy to install operating 
machinery. 

The North Beacon Street Bridge is in bad condition, and 
should be replaced by a drawless bridge. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Thomas H. Sexton, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
FERRY DIVISION. 



Boston, February 1, 1909. 

Mr. Guy C. Emerson, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit report of income, expen- 
ditures and operation of the Ferry Division for the financial 
year ending January 31, 1909. The expenditures for this 
year show a decrease of $45,289.43 over last year, despite 
the additional burden imposed by the one day off in seven 
law, which necessitates the employment of an extra crew. 

This amount includes the payment of bills amounting 
to $3,200 of the previous administration. This has been 
accomplished by reducing the working force without decreas- 
ing the efficiency of the service; also, by having our own 
mechanical force do the repair work much needed repairs, 
out of the ordinary wear and tear, have been accomphshed 
during the year. 

My recommendation for the coming year is that the south 
pier. North Ferry, Boston side, be rebuilt, also that the repair 
dock at South Ferry, East Boston side, be repaired; these 
items will cost $10,000. 

The property in charge of this division is as follows : 

South Ferry, East Boston Side. — Located at the termination 
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 workshop for carpenters, machinists and 
blacksmith, one storehouse, one new modern coal pocket, 
three new piers which form the two slips, two drops and 
tanks, one wharf and dock where boats are laid when not 
in use or while undergoing repairs. 

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



Street Department — Ferry Division. 47 

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

North Ferry, East Boston Side. — Located at the termination 
of Border street, and covers an area of 62,138 square feet of 
land and water, on which are one head-house, with canopies, 
one boiler and oil room, one coal pocket (new), three piers 
which form the two slips, and two drops and tanks. 

The following steam ferryboats are in commission:

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
LAMP DIVISION. 



Boston, Mass., February 1, 1909. 

Mr. Guy C. Emerson, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir, — The annual report of the Lamp Division for 
the year 1908 is herewith submitted. 

This division has supervision of the hghting, care and main- 
tenance of the various types of electric, gas and naphtha lamps 
in use by the city for illuminating the streets, alleys, parks 
and squares, the setting up of all new lamps in the streets 
and the placing of glass street signs and numbers in the 
lanterns. 

There was appropriated for this division for the financial 
year ending January 31, 1909, the sum of $800,000, and there 
was received from revenue credited to the division the sum 
of $23.75, but owing to circumstances that were unavoidable 
this amount was exceeded and a transfer was made from 
another appropriation to that of this division to the amount 
of $9,500, making a total credit of $809,523.75. 

The expenditures amounted to $809,510.06, thus leaving 
a balance of $13.69 unexpended. 

It had been anticipated that a contract for lighting the gas 
and naphtha lamps would have been made at a much earlier 
date than that finally decided upon and that a very substantial 
reduction in prices would also be made, thus allowing the 
division to live within the sum appropriated. 

After experimenting for a year under the system of lighting 
the gas and naphtha lamps by means of municipal employees, 
leasing the lanterns and fixtures and paying for repairs and 
renewals, purchasing gas direct from the gas company and 
naphtha from the producers at the market rate, it was deemed 
advisable, it having been demonstrated that the work could 
be carried on much cheaper, to return to some form of a con- 
tract system. 



60 City Document No. 38. 

On June 1, 1908, the following notice was published in 
various papers and journals throughout the country: 

CITY OF BOSTON.— Notice to Bidders.— GAS 
AND NAPHTHA LIGHTING — The Superin- 
tendent of Streets of the City of Boston, Office 
47, City Hall, invites proposals for lighting with 
gas and naphtha incandescent mantle burners on 
such streets, parks and alleys as may from time 
to time be designated by the Superintendent for 
five years, from August 1, 1908. The present 
number of gas lamps is about 10,500, and the 
number of naphtha lamps about 1,400. The city 
will furnish the posts and service pipes. The 
bidders must state a price per lamp per annum for 
each of the following lamps or clusters: 

1 — For single gas incandescent burners. 

2 — For single gasolene or naphtha incandescent 
burners. 

3 — For a lantern with two gas incandescent 
burners. 

4 — For a lantern with three gas incandescent 
burners. 

, 5 — For a cluster of two lanterns with one gas 

incandescent burner each. 

6 — For a cluster of two lanterns with two gas 
incandescent burners each. . 

7 — For a cluster of three lanterns with one gas 
incandescent burner each. 

8 — For a cluster of three lanterns with two gas 
incandescent burners each. 

In the case of the gas lamps, the bids may 
include the furnishing of the gas as well as the 
furnishing, maintenance and lighting of the lamps; 
or, in the alternative, may be confined to the 
furnishing, maintenance and lighting of the lamps, 
the city to furnish the gas. . Only proposals 
obtained at said office, filled out, signed by the 
bidder and left at said office on or before 12 o'clock 
m. of WEDNESDAY, July 1, 1908, with a certified 
check for $5,000, payable to and to be the property 
of the city if the proposal is not carried out, will 
at said hour and place be publicly opened and read. 
The successful bidder will be required to fiurnish in 
the sum of $100,000 a bond of a surety company 
authorized to do business in the State of Massachu- 
setts. Samples of the equipment, including 
lanterns, burners, etc., must be submitted with the 
bid. The Superintendent reserves the right to 
reject any and all proposals should he deem it for 
the interest of the city so to do, and to give pref- 
erence to the proposals of bidders agreeing to pay 
the trades unions' rate of wages. 

GUY C. EMERSON, Superintendent of Streets. 

On the opening of the proposals on July 1 it was found 
that there were three bidders and a canvass of the proposals 
resulted as follows:

The bids were taken under advisement and after due con- 
sideration were rejected. Later on, in view of the facts that 
more time was needed to arrange for new specifications, 
that additional time should be given to the investigation of ■ 
any new type of lamp or improvements that might develop 
along the hne of efficiency or economy in street lighting 
methods, that the Rising Sun Street Lighting Company 
had all of its equipment already on the streets and ways of 
the city and that a saving could be made, a temporary 
contract was entered upon with the above -company under 
authority of the Mayor, without inviting proposals, for the 
term of one year from September 15, 1908, deducting the sum 
of $9.60, the price paid per lamp per year for gas by the

By mutual consent the contract' for incandescent lighting 
between the city and the Edison Electric Illuminating Com- 
pany which was to have continued until June 1, 1909, was 
canceled, taking effect on and after April 1, 1908, with the 
written understanding and condition that bills for service 
provided for in said contract should, during the remainder 
of the term, be rendered and settled on the regular 
municipal lighting schedules of the company, a separate bill 
to be rendered for each meter. A result of the above change 
of rates has been a reduction in the cost to the city depart- 
ments as a whole for this class of lighting. 

On April 2, 1909, an arrangement went into effect whereby 
the Edison Company agreed to maintain and repair the 
electric light cables owned by the city in the different park- 
ways, also the overhead system at Castle Island, without 
expense to the city; the company to cancel the unpaid bills 
against the city for maintenance and repair of the said cables 
and the city agreeing to pay during the life of the contract, 
concerning the street and park lighting of the city, the rates 
fixed by the said contract, without the deduction of one cent 
per lamp per night which had been made under the former 
arrangement for such lamps as were connected with the city 
cables. 



64 City Document No. 38. 

In September a notice to contractors for street lighting 
and manufacturers of street lighting apparatus was published, 
inviting such parties having apparatus adapted to systems 
other than the present system of low pressure gas mantles 
to demonstrate therewith, if they so desired, during the 
continuance of the present contract for street lighting, with 
a view to the improvement of the present system upon the 
expiration of the present contract on September 15, 1909. 

Various types of arc, incandescent electric lamps, vertical 
mantle and inverted mantle gas lamps and automatic light- 
ing devices have been demonstrated with on the streets and 
are now in process of investigation and being experimented 
with. 

A more brilhant illumination of the important thorough- 
fares, business streets and public squares is needed, as it is 
a factor in the improvement in the social, moral and business 
conditions of the city that should not be overlooked. Consid- 
erable correspondence and investigation have been conducted 
in relation to improved and ornamental posts and fixtures 
together with other new lighting processes that have been 
brought to the attention of the division, and a large amount 
of data has been obtained. A more ornamental lamp-post 
on certain prominent thoroughfares and squares is desirable. 
The design of such a post should be the subject of careful 
study and consideration. A post carefully proportioned and 
of a decorative but not too ornate design could be used to 
advantage. 

A mast-arm type of post is also needed, or a cross-suspension 
lamp fixture, at many important street intersections or on 
such streets where the foliage overhanging both roadway and 
sidewalk requires a better distribution of light than can be 
obtained by the use of the ordinary post. 

The discontinuance of all of the naphtha street lamps having 
been determined upon on account of the excessive rate paid 
per lamp; and in order to obtain a more efficient lighting ser- 
vice in the districts supplied with these lamps, the substitu- 
tion of either mantle gas lamps, where gas mains were laid, 
or with the Tungsten series lamps, principally the latter type 
of lamp, has been in progress. A considerable reduction in 
the yearly cost of maintenance will be obtained by this change 
when the work of installation is completed. It has been 
found that the Tungsten lamp with radial reflector gives 
a very satisfactory illumination upon those streets in which 
it has been installed. Tests made on the street to deter- 
mine the value of the illumination from these lamps have 



Street Department — Lamp Division. 65 

shown a distinct gain over the former method by an increase 
in the intensity of the useful light thrown upon the area to 
be lighted. 

In order that the citizens residing in the Germantown 
District could receive the benefit of gas service, the gas com- 
pany was prevailed upon to extend its mains throughout that 
district, including the new state highway. Work was com- 
menced late in the fall on the installation of mantle gas 
lamps in the above district, and it will be completed this 
spring. 

The work done by the division in the installation of new 
lamps and repairs and alterations of services and posts has 
been conducted as follows: 

There have been 207 naphtha lamps changed to mantle 
gas lamps where the gas company have extended their mains. 
One hundred and eighty-eight new single mantle gas lamps 
have been set up and one new triple mantle gas lamp installed. 
Five gas lamps that were out temporarily have been relighted 
and four have been replaced that were discontinued. Two 
triple mantle gas have been changed to single mantle gas lamps. 
One new naphtha lamp has been set up and one replaced. 
Twelve double mantle naphtha have been changed to single 
mantle naphtha lamps. 

Care has been assumed of four new. fire-alarm signal lamps. 
Thirteen new arc lamps have been installed and temporary 
arc lamps have been provided during the skating season at 
Wood Island, North Brighton and Jamaica Pond. 

Thirty gas lamps, 74 single mantle and 4 double mantle 
naphtha lamps and 9 arc lamps have been discontinued and 
removed. 

On account of the extension and repair of the Traverse 
Street Subway eight 16 c. p. lamps were removed and fifteen 
16 c. p. lamps were newly installed. 

Twelve 40 c. p., twenty 60 c. p. and one 80 c. p. new Tung- 
sten lamps have been installed on the streets, and ten 32 
c. p. carbon lamps have been changed to 60 c. p. Tungsten. 
The total number of lamps of all types, set up, relighted 
and replaced during the year is 427. The total number of 
lamps discontinued is 287, a total net increase of 140. 

Changes in locations of 16 gas, 46 naphtha and 6 arc lamp- 
posts have been made on account of street construction, 
building operations or grade changes. 

Two hundred and twelve lamp-posts have been set for the 
various types of lamps, and 48 incandescent fixtures have 
been put up; 1 naphtha and 33 gas lamp-posts that were 



66 City Document No. 38. 

broken by teams or other causes have been removed and 
new posts set; 4 gas and 3 naphtha lamp-posts have been 
set in place of bracket fixtm^es. 

Fifty-six gas, 36 naphtha and 7 arc lamp-posts have 
been straightened; 77 gas, 11 naphtha and 5 arc lamp-posts 
have been reset to Hne and grade; 19 gas, 60 naphtha and 
2 arc lamp-posts that have been discontinued were removed 
from the streets; 12 gas brackets have been removed from 
buildings; 1 lamp-post has had the spindle recalked. 

Four hundred and eighteen new service pipes have been 
laid, and 42 have been removed and cut off from the 
main .pipes; 12 services have been reconnected with new 
mains, and 159 renewed or relaid that were trapped or other- 
wise affected by street changes; 56 leaks in services were 
repaired; 21 risers renewed or shortened; 12 risers were 
removed, and 501 services were cleared. 

The number of ^ glass street signs that have been placed in 
the lanterns is 796, and also 270 numbers; glass shades have 
been placed in the gas lanterns when requested. 

Tables showing the expenditures of the division, the total 
number of lamps of various types installed, the contract 
prices paid per lamp per annum, the increase or decrease of 
the lamps, an inventory of property, and copies of the light- 
ing contracts, etc., are annexed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edward C. Wade, 

Deputy Superintendent. 



Gas Lighting. 



There are 11,061 single mantle gas lamps in use, 179 triple 
mantle gas, 19 triple mantle police lamps in front of stations, 
and 192 open flame fire-alarm signal lamps. 

The city furnishes and provides for the setting of the lamp- 
posts, has service pipes laid from the gas main to the top of 
the post, maintains all such pipes and posts in good condition 
and repair, furnishes the gas, contracts for lanterns, burners, 
other necessary equipment and labor for lighting and care. 

The division pays for the cost of gas, lighting and care for 
the fire-alarm lamps, and the cost of repairs and setting up 
of posts is assumed by the Fire Department.

city. The said plant and all appurtenances so furnished by 
the contractor shall remain his property and must be removed 
by him at the expiration of the contract at his own expense.

cise due diligence in the erection of said plant, or if the mate- 
rials furnished therefor are not to the satisfaction of the 
city, the city may give the contractor notice in writing of 
such dereliction, and then if the contractor fails within thirty 
days thereafter to obey any proper order of the city, in con- 
nection with the work of erecting and furnishing the plant,

They shall be neatly painted by the contractor such color as 
the city may designate, and shall be repainted from time to 
time whenever, in the opinion of the city, it shall be deemed 
necessary. The posts must be kept free from dirt and must 
not be used for advertising purposes. The city will set, 
connect and keep the posts in good repair and plumb. 

The contractor must furnish cross-arms on such posts as 
the city may designate, arranged to take two or three lanterns 
as may be required by the city. 

5. Lanterns. — The lanterns must be of boulevard pattern, 
and identical in construction with the sample lantern sub- 
mitted with the bid. The lamps and ventilators must be so 
constructed that the lights therein will be protected against 
insects and wind and weather. 

6. Burners and Mantles. — The burners to be used must 
be first-class in material and workmanship, furnishing at all 
times when in service a steady, clear, white light, free from 
smoke, of the required candle power. 

If the burners shall not give continuously the required 
candle power they miist be replaced by the contractor with 
burners that will. No incandescent mantle will be permitted 
to be used unless composed of the best material and standard 
weave and of first-class quality in all respects.

by the city, said schedule not to exceed four thousand burning 
hours per lamp per year. The lamps must be lighted within 
one hour from the time fixed in the schedule as the time for 
beginning, and must be extinguished within one hour from 
the time fixed in the schedule as the time for beginning to 
extinguish. 

'In order that the city may determine whether the gas or 
naphtha lamps are lighted and extinguished in accordance 
with the official schedule or time table hereinbefore men- 
tioned, the contractor shall furnish the said official with maps 
or lists showing the number and geographical location of each 
lamp in the district of each lamplighter, and designating the 
particular lamp at which each lamplighter commences to 
light and also the lamp at which he completes the lighting; 
and in extinguishing^ the lamps the lamplighter shall begin 



80 City Document No. 38. 

and finish at the same lamps as are designated for begin- 
ning and finishing points on any lamp district during the 
term of contract. 

The lamplighters or other employees of the contractor will 
not be permitted to climb the lamp-posts for the purpose of 
lighting the lamps, or for any other purpose, except by use 
of a ladder. 

For every light that does not burn continuously at the 
proper candle power' throughout the hours prescribed each 
night, a sum equal to gfg- of the contract price per lamp 
per year, for each night's failure, will be deducted from the 
amounts due the contractor and forfeited to the city. These 
"outs" will be reported by the Police Department at its 
respective police stations daily, in writing, open to the con- 
tractor, and shall be regarded as final and binding upon the 
contractor, errors proven or admitted excepted. 

8. Repairs and Maintenance. — The contractor must at 
his own expense keep the entire plant in good repair and 
maintain same to the satisfaction of the city. Upon failure 
of the contractor to promptly make any and all necessary 
repairs (including repainting of lanterns and posts) the city 
may cause same to be done and deduct the cost thereof from 
any amounts that may become due to the contractor. All 
glass must be cleaned at least once a weekj and oftener if 
necessary to do so, in order not to retard or diminish the 
candle power of the lamps. All broken or displaced glass, 
and all broken or defective mantles, must be replaced forth- 
with, and all street lamps must be constructed so that present 
signs may be attached, and shall, after each cleaning, be 
replaced, with the signs facing the proper street. All broken or 
displaced glass shall be removed forthwith by the contractor. 

The contractor shall report, in writing, at the office of the 
official in charge of street lighting, on Thursday of each week, 
the number of each kind of lamps lighted on each of the 
preceding seven nights, and on the tenth day of each month 
the number of each kind lighted, as aforesaid, on each night 
subsequent to the last report, stating in each report the name 
of each person lighting the lamps, and the locations of any 
and all lamps added to or removed from the district of each 
lamplighter, and is to notify said official, in writing, of any 
damage to or repair needed to the posts or service pipes. 

The contractor will be allowed the entire use of the Lamp 
Department shop. No. 690 Albany street, at a rent of $100 
per month. 

9. Removal of Lamps. — Whenever ordered to do so by 
the city, the contractor must change the location of lamps, 



Street Department — Lamp Division. 81 

weather permitting, from one place to another (posts to be 
f m'nished by the city ready to receive lamp) , at his own cost 
and expense. 

10. New Lamps. — The city may, from time to time, order 
the erection and maintenance of new or additional lamps, at 
such locations as it may deem proper, and it shall be the duty 
of the contractor, at his own cost and expense, to properly 
erect upon said posts furnished, placed and connected by 
the city, and put into operation such additional lamps and 
maintain the same in all respects as called for in these speci- 
fications. All additional lamps ordered shall be put in ser- 
vice within ten days after they are ordered and posts set and 
connected; and notice that the same are in service shall be 
given by the contractor to the city, 

11. Discontinuance of Lamps. — ■ The city shall have the 
right to increase or diminish the number of lamps furnished 
under the contract, but it is understood that the total num- 
ber of gas and naphtha lamps to be furnished under this 
contract shall not at any time be less than 7,500. 

Naphtha or gasolene lamps may be, changed to gas lamps 
at the discretion of the city when the gas post and service 
connections are ready therefor. When orders to discontinue 
lamps are given, in accordance with the above, the contractor 
must put them out of service within five clays, and notify 
the City of Boston in wiiting; payment for the same shall 
cease on such discontinuance, and when the contractor 
removes a gas lantern without substituting another therefor, 
he shall properly plug the service pipe so that the gas will 
not escape therefrom. 

12. Candle Power. — All the burners, whether of gas, gaso- 
lene or naphtha, must be maintained continuously when in 
service at not less than 60 actual candle power. The city 
shall have the right at any time to test the lights in the 
usual accepted manner by standard photometric tests, and 
if there is found any deficiency the contractor must proceed 
at once to remedy the defects and raise the burners to the 
required candle power. 

13. Supply of Gas. — The city shall furnish all the gas 
required for the lamps, but is not to light it. 

The city agrees to furnish at the mouth of the riser pipes in 
the gas posts the required amount of gas for street lighting, of 
the quality and at the pressure furnished in said city for resi- 
dence consumption; and the contractor will be required to 
produce at all times a sixty (60) candle power light on a 
consumption of not to exceed 3 feet of gas per lamp per 
hour. Any excess consumption over and above an average of 



82 City Document No. 38. 

3 feet per lamp per hour shall be paid for by the con- 
tractor at the rate of eighty (80) cents per thousand cubic feet, 
which excess shall be determined as hereinafter provided. 
After the determination, said amount shall become due and 
payable by the contractor, or on failure of payment may be 
deducted by the city from any amounts due or thereafter to 
become due the contractor. 

Tests to ascertain such consumption shall be made when 
requested by either party in the following manner : representa- 
tives of the parties hereto shall select at random from various 
parts of the city not less than thirty (30) and not more than 
fifty (50) burners, noting the pressure at the particular post 
from which each burner is taken. Such burners shall then be 
tested by the representatives of the parties hereto for the con- 
sumption under ihe same conditions of pressure as that 
obtained at the particular places where the burners were in 
use. 

If by such tests it shall appear that the said burners are con- 
suming gas at a rate greater than 3 cubic feet per hour on 
an average, then it shall be assumed that all burners in the city 
are consuming gas at the same rate as such average rate, and 
the amount of excess gas consumed shall be arrived at by mul- 
tiplying the number of lighting hours by the excess amount 
over the rajie as shown by the test. The rate of consumption so 
determined shall govern until another test is made. 

14. Naphtha or Gasolene. — The contractor shall furnish all 
the gasolene or naphtha which may be necessary to supply 
incandescent mantle gasolene or naphtha street lamps at such 
locations as the city may from time to time direct, and furnish 
with posts for the purpose. 

The contractor will be required to supply each lamp each 
night with a sufficient quantity of gasolene or naphtha to 
insure the standard of light herein contracted for at all times 
during the hours of burning. 

The gasolene or naphtha used in supplying the lamps must 
be of the very best grade, free from water, gum, glue or other 
impurities. 

15. Payments. — Payment for the work .performed under 
this contract shall be made by the city monthly, in the same 
manner as other city work is paid for, at the rates specified in 
the contract and subject to appropriations. 

16. Miscellaneous. — The contractor shall allow his em- 
ployees to lodge, board and trade wheresoever and with whom- 
soever they may choose, and shall give preference in 
employment, first, to citizens of the City of Boston, second, to 
citizens of Massachusetts, and shall save the city and its 



Street Department — Lamp Division. 83 

agents and employees harmless from any and all claims against 
them or any of them arising from any act, omission or neglect 
of the contractor, his agents or employees in carrying on the 
contract, and no workman, laborer or mechanic employed on 
this work within the Commonwealth shall be requested or 
required to labor more than eight hours in any one calendar 
day. 

Any assignment, subletting or otherwise permitting the 
work herein specified to be done by any one other than the 
contractor, or encumbering the work or plant by mortgage or 
in any way, will be sufficient cause for the abrogation of the 
contract by the city.

On the first four streets the contracts were awarded in 
1907, the specifications calling for a 3-inch by 3i-inch gum 
block. The 1908 contracts, the last two, called for a 
4-inch by 4-inch hard pine block. 

The asphalt pavement laid this year was confined to the 
resurfacing of several small areas of old asphalt streets, with 
the exception of Cooper street, which was awarded last year. 
The asphalt patching was advertised and awarded to the lowest 
bidder, the Warren Brothers Company being the successful 
contractors. 

Crushed Stone. 

In previous years the crushed stone used by the division 
was produced wholly by the city crushers at a cost consider- 
ably in excess of what it could be bought for in the open 
market. This condition having been shown clearly, it was 
decided to dispense with the city crushing plants located 
on leased ledges, and five (5) were sold to the highest bidders. 
There are now three (3) plants which are located on city 
property and still used by the city, one at Codman street, 
Dorchester, one at Chestnut Hill avenue, Brighton and one 
at Dimock street, Roxbury. 

Steam Rollers. 

Eleven 15-ton and one 3-ton steam rollers constitute the 
steam roller outfit of the division. These rollers were over- 
hauled during the winter, the necessary repairs made, painted, 
etc., and turned out for the season's work in good condition. 
As these rollers do a great deal of picking in the repair of the 
macadam, the constant shake and jar loosen the bolts and 
wear the bearings unevenly, so that after a season's use there 
is quite an amount of work to be done to put them in proper 
repair. 

Personal Property. 

The personal property of the division, consisting of tools, 
hardware, appliances, etc., is in fair condition, the report at 
the end of the year showing a valuation in the neighborhood 
of $63,000.

Yard and Wharf Room. 

Each district is well provided for in the matter of yard 
room, the North Yard particularly havmg an excess in two 
locations, one at Hecht's wharf and one at Burnham's wharf, 
which are very expensive and could be dispensed with with- 
out detriment to the division. The property occupied by 
the division for yards, stables, etc., is owned by the city, 
with the exception of the East Boston and South Boston 
districts, which are leased. 



General Work. 

The division force has been employed on the general work 
of maintenance, such as paving, macadam reconstruction, 
edgestone and sidewalk construction, new and old, and fence 
and bulkhead repairs, as follows:

and the acts in amendment thereof and addition thereto, 
twenty-five new streets were constructed.

Providence street, from the west side of Church street 170 
feet easterly, was paved with wood blocks on a six (6) inch 
Portland cement concrete base, with cement grout bed and 
joints, by the United States Wood Preserving Company, under 
a ten (10) year maintenance guarantee. The track area was 
paved by the Boston Elevated Railway Company. The regu- 
lating of the edgestones and sidewalks was done by the con- 
tractor. In the rear of Hotel Thorndike the brick sidewalk was 
replaced with flagging laid in cement mortar. The old paving 
blocks were hauled by the contractor to the South Yard and to 
the Massachusetts avenue lot. The former pavement was 
granite blocks on a gravel base with gravel joints. 

Summer street, between Washington street and Hawley street, 
about 240 feet in length, was paved with wood blocks on the 
existing concrete base, which was cleaned off and brought up to 
the proper grade with Portland cement concrete, with cement 
grout bed and joints, by the United States Wood Preserving 
Company, under a ten (10) year maintenance guarantee. The 
track area was paved by the Boston Elevated Railway Com- 
pany. The contractor also laid a vitrified brick crosswalk at 
Washington street and the bricks for the same were furnished 
by the city on the line of the work. The old paving blocks were 
hauled by the contractor to the South Yard and to the Massa- 
chusetts avenue lot. The former pavement was granite blocks 
on a concrete base with grout joints. The sum of six hundred 
and fifteen dollars ($615) has been charged to the Transit Com- 
mission as its proportionate share of the expense of repaving 
this street. 

Washington street, from Cornhill to about 78 feet ■ south of 
Court avenue, about 513 feet in length, and State street, on 
the north side of the Old State House, about 117 feet in length, 
and State street, on the south side of the Old State House, 
about 123 feet in length, weie paved with wood blocks, on a six 
(6) inch Portland cement concrete base, with cement giout bed 
and joints, by James Doherty, under a ten (10) year mainte- 
nance guarantee. The track area was paved by the Boston 
Elevated Railway Company. This work is a continuation of 
the work done last year on Washington street, thus completing 
the laying of the wood block from Beach street to Cornhill, 
all of which work was necessitated on account of the work 
done in connection with the building of the Washington Street 
Tunnel. The regulating was done at the expense and under 
the supervision of the Transit Commission. The old paving 
blocks and flagging were hauled by the contractor to the 
South Yard and to the Massachusetts avenue lot. The former 
pavement was granite blocks on a concrete base with pitch 
and pebble joints, but on account of the tunnel operations 
this pavement w^as taken up and the roadv/ay was temporarily 
repaved with granite blocks on a gravel bed. The sum of four 
thousand eight hundred sixty-seven and eighty one-hundredths 



92 City Document No. 38. 

dollars ($4,867.80) has been charged to the Transit Commission 
as its propoitionate share of the expense of repaying these 
streets. 

West street, from Washington street to Tremont street, about 
470 feet in length, was paved with wood blocks on the existing 
concrete base, which was cleaned off and brought up to the 
proper grade with Portland cement concrete, with cement 
grout bed and joints, by the United States Wood Preserving 
Company, under a ten (10) year maintenance guarantee. The 
old paving blocks were hauled by the contractor, some to 
Lexington street, East Boston; some to the East Boston 
Paving Yard, and the balance to the Massachusetts avenue 
lot. A vitrified brick crosswalk was laid by the contractor at 
Washington street, the bricks for the same being furnished 
by the city on the line of the work. The former pavement 
was granite blocks on a concrete base with grout joints. 

Granitoid Concrete Blocked Pavement. 

This is a patent pavement composed of crushed stone and 
Portland cement. It is laid seven (7) inches deep and consists 
of five and one-quarter (5J) inches of concrete and one and 
three-quarters (If) inches of surface blocking. The concrete 
is composed of one (1) part Portland cement, three (3) parts 
sand and four (4) parts of crushed stone. After the concrete 
has been placed, and before it has begun to set, there is deposited 
thereon the Granitoid blocking, which is composed of two (2) 
parts of Portland cement and three (3) parts of fine hard 
crushed stone. After the initial set this is worked into brick 
shapes of approximately four and one-half (4^) inches by 
nine (9) inches, having rectangular surface similar to paving 
blocks. An expansion joint of composition is made across 
the street at such intervals as may be necessary. This pave- 
ment was laid by the Rudolph S. Blome Company, under a 
five (5) year maintenance guarantee, in Zeigler street, between 
Washington street and Warren street, about 315 feet in length. 
The contractor did the excavating and furnished the materials 
for the pavement. The surplus material was hauled by the 
contractor to the Dimock street lot. The regulating was done 
by the city. The former surface of the street was macadam. 

Assessment Streets. 

The following streets have been constructed or are in the 
process of construction under the provisions of chapter "323" 
of the Acts of 1891, and the acts in amendment thereof or in 
addition thereto. Ashland street, from Mill stieet to Everdean 
street, is about 289 feet in length. The contract for construct-

completed June 18, 1908. It is a thirty-eight (38) foot street 
with a six (6) inch macadam roadway, three (3) foot granite 
block gutters, flagging crosswalks, granite edgestone and 
seven (7) foot crushed stone sidewalks. The existing mac- 
adam roadway and crushed stone sidewalks were found to be 
in good condition and required only reshaping to conform 
with the present construction. The straight edgestones and 
flagging were furnished by the city and hauled by the con- 
tractor. The circular edgestone and paving blocks were fur- 
nished by the city on the line of the work. The crushed stone 
and screenings for leshaping were furnished by the contractor. 

Avenue Louis Pasteur, between the Fenway and Longwood 
avenue, about 1,371 feet in length, is being filled in and graded. 
The filling is obtained from various sources. William J. Barry, 
under his contract dated October 2, 1908, is at present deliver- 
ing filling. A large part of the fill is over low, marshy ground, 
and on account of the consequent settlement the work pro- 
ceeds rather slowly. 

Bayswater street, from Saratoga street, across Austin avenue, 
is about 1,120 feet in length. The contract for constructing 
the surface of this street was awarded to James Doherty

and completed April 2, 1908. It is a fifty (50) foot street 
with a 6-inch macadam roadway, three (3) foot granite block 
gutters, flagging crosswalks, granite edgestones and eight (8) 
foot crushed stone sidewalks. The work this season consisted 
principally of completing the macadam roadway and crushed 
stone sidewalks, the crushed stone for the same being fur- 
nished by the contractor.

The edgestone, bricks for crosswalks and gutters, sand, cement 
and crushed stone for the concrete base for crosswalks, paving 
blocks for brows of crosswalks and the crushed stone for the 
roadway and sidewalks were furnished by the contractor. 

Bruce street, from Dracut street to Wrentham street, is about 
135 feet in length. The contract for constructing the surface of 
this street was awarded to Daniel E. Lynch November 11, 

1907. Work was begun November 29, 1907, and suspended 
December 26, 1907. It was resumed July 23, 1908, and com- 
pleted September 2, 1908. It is a forty (40) foot street with a 
six (6) inch macadam roadway, three (3) foot granite block 
gutters, flagging crosswalks, granite edgestones and seven (7) 
foot crushed stone sidewalks. The work done this season 
consisted of completing the roadway and the crushed stone 
sidewalks, the crushed stone for the same being furnished by 
the city and hauled by the contractor. 

Corona street, from Bowdoin street to Geneva avenue, is 
about 1,001 feet in length. The contract for constructing the 
surface of this street was awarded to William J. Barry June 
23, 1908. Work was begun August 7, 1908, and completed 
October 14, 1908. It is a thirty-five (35) foot street with a 
six (6) inch macadam roadway, three (3) foot brick gutters, 
brick and flagging crosswalks and six (6) foot artificial stone 
sidewalks. The new edgestone, brick blocks and-crushed stone 
were furnished by the contractor. Such of the existing mate- 
rial on the street as was found suitable was used in the present 
construction. The contract for constructing the artificial stone 
sidewalks was awarded to Jeremiah J. Sullivan September 3, 

1908. Work was begun October 28, 1908, and suspended 
December 19, 1908. The sidewalk on the south side was 
completed for nearly the entire length of the street. The 
remaining sidewalks were excavated and filled with cinders and 
left in a passable condition for the winter. Work will be 
resumed early in the spring. 

Cottage street, from Maverick street across Gove street, is 
about 630 feet in length. The contract for constructing the 
surface of this street was awarded to James Doherty November 
14, 1907. Work was begun April 23, 1908, and suspended May 
28, 1908. It was resumed July 28, 1908, and completed July 
31, 1908. It is a fifty (50) foot street with a six (6) inch 
macadam roadway, three (3) foot granite block gutters, flagging 
crosswalks and granite edgestone. The sidewalks, which are 
eight (8) feet in width, are of brick except along the playground, 
where they are of crushed stone. The edgestone, paving 
blocks and sidewalk bricks were furnished by the city on the 
line of the work. The flagging was furnished by the city and 
hauled by the contractor. The crushed stone for the macadam 
and sidewalks was furnished by the contractor. 

Cotton street, from Walter street to Fairview street, is about 
721 feet in length. The contract for constructing the surface 



Street Department — Paving Division. 95 

of this street, with the exception of the artificial stone side- 
walks, was awarded to Peter F. Connolly July 3, 1908. Work 
was begun July 16, 1908, and suspended August 24, 1908. It 
was resumed October 2, 1908, and completed October 22, 1908. 
It is a forty (40) foot street with a six (6) inch macadam road- 
way, three (3) foot brick block gutters, brick and flagging 
crosswalks and granite edgestone. The sidewalks, seven (7) 
feet in width, have an artificial stone walk four and one-half 
(4^) feet wide "and a seeded loam space 1 foot 11 inches 
wide. The edgestone, bricks for crosswalks and gutters, sand, 
cement and crushed stone for concrete base for brick cross- 
walks, paving blocks for brows to crosswalks and the crushed 
stone for the roadway were furnished by the contractor. The 
contract for constructing the artificial stone sidewalks was 
awarded to Thomas A. Nolan July 23, 1908. Work was 
begun August 18, 1908, and completed September 15, 1908. 
These walks are laid under a ten (10) year maintenance guar- 
antee. Underdrains were laid connecting the cinder founda- 
tion of the walks with the catch-basins, the object being to 
prevent the accumulation of water at the low end of the walks

Bonds for Permits. 

There are on file in the Permit Office 1,458 one thousand 
(1,000) dollar bonds which are guaranteed by some one of the 
surety companies authorized to do business in the State of 
Massachusetts. There are sixty-one (61) twenty thousand 
(20,000) dollar bonds on file in the office of the City Auditor 
under which permits are granted by the Permit Office. 

Coal Vaults or Areas Beneath Sidewalks. 

There have been twenty (20) permits issued for the con- 
struction of areas and coal vaults during the year, as per 
order of the Board of Aldermen. 

There have bden sixteen (16) permits issued for sidewalk 
covers of various kinds over areas. 



Emergency Permits. 

The system of handling emergency permits — the purpose 
of which is to allow the interested parties to do work, in the 
night or at times when it is impossible for them to obtain 
regular permits, necessaTy for the safety of life and property — 
has been improved from year to year and is now in very 
good shape. 

Some difficulty has been experienced by the district fore- 
men in locating openings made by corporations owning 
underground structures, at street intersections, and in the 
event of several openings having been made in locating a 
leak on one permit. This has been obviated by requiring 
the corporations to give exact locations, by means of ties 
to permanent bounds in the case of street intersections, and 
by securing the exact location of each hole made in locating 
a leak. 

Notices. 

There have been 14,628 notices sent to district foremen, 
corporations, departments and private individuals, directing 
them to make repairs to defects in the public streets. 

There have been 318 notices sent to departments and 
corporations to perform work under the direction of the 
Chief Engineer of this departrnxcnt. 

Each morning a statement is forwarded to each district 
foreman giving the locations of all openings for which permits 
were issued during the previous day. 



232 



City Document No. 38. 



An inspector is assigned to oversee the construction of all 
artificial sidewalks, and another is detailed to the examination 
of places where defects are alleged to exist which have caused, 
accidents. 

The inspectors detailed to serve with the corporations 
making openings in the streets send a daily report to the 
Permit Office of all openings and backfillings inspected during 
the previous twenty-four hours. The salaries of these men 
are met by the corporations whose work they inspect. 

Electric Poles. 

Permits have been issued during the year for the placing 
of forty-two (42) new poles as per plans on file in the Permit 
Office and in accordance with orders of the Board of Alder- 
men. 

Permits have been issued for the resetting of one thousand 
two hundred and seven (1,207) poles which were defective 
or dangerous. 

Permits have been issued for the removal of three hundred 
and eighteen (318) poles as per order of the Board of Alder- 
men and Wire Commissioner. 

Plans. 

Plans of electric pole locations and locations for electric 
conduits, gas mains, railway tracks and a large number of 
miscellaneous matters, such as steam pipes, areas, etc., are 
kept on file and indexed as follows :

Sidewalk Defects. 

During nine months of this year two inspectors have been 
examining the sidewalks of the public streets for defects 
liable to cause accidents to pedestrians. Their inspection 
covered open areas needing guard rails; area covers smooth 
or with bull's-eyes out; bulkhead covers and edges; coal-hole

covers, rims or stones smooth or otherwise defective ; depres- 
sions and stub-toes of various kinds, etc. 

The inspectors made 14,741 inspections and under chapter 
38, sections 12, 18 and 19, and chapter 47, section 54, of the 
Revised Ordinances of 1898, and chapter 5, section 3, of the 
Revised Regulations of 1898, they found 4,156 defective 
properties. 

Notices to the number of 3,756 were mailed to the owners 
or lessees of the property at which each defect was found 
and in addition 400 verbal notices were given by the inspec- 
tors to the interested parties at the time of inspection. Sub- 
sequent inspection shows that in 2,900 cases satisfactory 
repairs were made and in 1,256 cases they are yet to be made. 

During the past two months the work of these inspectors 
has been so arranged that in each defect reported it becomes 
the duty of the inspector to follow up the responsible party 
until repairs are effected. 

As a rule more than one defect was reported on each notice, 
thus making it apparent that at the lowest estimate the 
inspection has resulted in the repair of 4,000 defects. Prob- 
ably there have not been such a number of sidewalk defects 
removed in an equal period during any ten previous years 
in the history of the city.

Street Department — Sanitary Division. 297 



APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE SANITARY DIVISION. 



Rooms Nos. 917-920, Tremont Building, 

Boston, Mass., February 1, 1909. 

Mr. Guy C. Emerson, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir, — I hereby respectfully submit the annual 
report of the expenditures, income and operation of the Sani- 
tary Division of the Street Department for the financial 
year ending January 31, 1909. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George H. Foss, 

Deputy Superintendent. 



On July 1, 1908, the collection of ashes in the East Boston 
district was let by contract. On July 15 the collection of 
ashes in the Brighton district was let by contract. 

On July 15, 1908, the carrying capacity, of the ash carts 
was increased from fifty-four cubic feet to sixty-three cubic 
feet. 

The City Ordinances of 1892, chapter 36, require that house 
dirt and ashes and house offal shall be kept in an easily 
accessible place for their removal, the men being obliged to 
enter the yards and remove the receptacles to the sidewalk, 
where their contents are dumped into the carts. The recep- 
tacles are then placed in their original position. 

Ordinance of 1907, chapter 4 : The Sanitary Division shall 
remove 'house offal, house dirt and such ashes as are the prod- 
uct of burning materials for heating habitations, cooking 
and other domestic purposes and all other noxious and 
refuse substances from yards and areas when so placed as to 
be easily removed. 

During the year six (6) new winged carts were built by the 
Sanitary Division, having a carrjdng capacity of eighty-seven 
cubic feet each. 



298 City Document No. 38. 

The scarcity of low land available for dumping purposes 
has greatly increased the cost of collection. The division 
is now pajdng for dumping privileges at the rate of ten (10) 
cents per load in East Boston, Charlestown, Roxbury, the 
South End and Cambridge. 

The division also has charge of the construction and repairs 
of carriages, carts, wagons and harnesses, etc., for this and 
other divisions and departments.

ments thereto, which have been connected during the year 
with the sewers for which they were assessed. 

Permits covering 363 connections have been issued to 
district foremen and fifty-eight to contractors; liaensed 
drainlayers have received permits to lay or repair 1,856 
house drains. The work done under these permits has been 
inspected and a record of the same made on the plans of 
this division, in accordance mth the provisions of the Ordi- 
nances of 1908, chapter 3. 

Plans for the assessments of estates for sewer construction 
have been furnished the Street Commissioners, representing 
36,667.80 feet of sewers and appurtenances, costing 
$406,887.69.

APPENDIX G. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
STREET CLEANING AND WATERING DIVISION. 



Boston, Mass., February 1, 1909. 

Mr. Guy C. Emerson, 

Superintendent of Streets: 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the following report 
of the expenditures of the Street Cleaning and Watering 
Division for the financial year ending January 31, 1909. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. B. Pratt, 

Deputy Superintendent. 



The work of the Street Cleaning arid Watering Division 
consists in the machine sweeping and hand sweeping of all 
streets within certain district lines, and the watering of all 
streets throughout the city under Ordinance of 1908, chapter 3, 
section 1. 

The district lines of the division comprise the entire city 
excepting part of Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Brighton and 
West Roxbury:

The work of the street cleaning branch has been of the 
same general character as in past years. During the last few 



Street Cleaning and Watering Division. 375 

months of the year a new type of flushing machine was used 
known as the Kindhng Street Washing Machine. This 
machine consists of a steel tank of about 400 gallons capacity, 
mounted on four wheels. The tank feeds four sprinklers 
between the front and rear wheels, all operated with valves by 
the driver. Geared to the left hind wheel is a cleaning roller 
or squeegee. This is a heavy steel cyhnder with twenty-four 
rubber fins. As the cylinder revolves the rubbers remove 
the dust, mud and slime from the pavement. 

During the season a contract was made with the Calcide 
Process Company to treat about 268,000 square yards of 
macadam roadway with calcium chloride for laying dust. 
The price paid for five months was four cents ($0.04) per square 
yard. The material is brought to the roadway in carts of 
about 600 gallons capacity, filled with a concentrated 
solution of 40 per cent calcium chloride, specific gravity 1.4. 
A nest of five 110-gallon galvanized-iron cans is carried 
on a rack on the rear of the cart. The cart is driven to a 
standpipe on the roadway where a can is placed and filled 
with the solution. The remaining cans are left at other 
standpipes and filled. By means of a siphon arrangement 
the cart is filled with water from the standpipe and with the 
110 gallons of the 40 per cent solution by one operation. The 
empty can is placed on the rack and the operation is repeated. 
One load, or about 600 gallons, covers about 1,900 square 
yards of roadway, or about ten loads to the mile of 32-foot 
roadway. In order to fill the surface thoroughly with the chlo- 
ride two applications are made the first week. The following 
applications serve on an average twentj^-one days. In shady 
areas the salt retains the moisture for a longer period than 
in areas exposed to the direct rays of the sun. It is usually 
ne'cessary to feed the salt by the ordinary application of water, 
var\dng from one to three times per week, according to the 
condition of the weather and the road treated. The calcium 
chloride treatment by this method gives very satisfactory 
results. It leaves no odor, it is clean and, though not a road 
builder, it leaves the surface of the road in much better con- 
dition at the end of the season's treatment. 

About twenty-five miles of roadway were also treated with 
an oil emulsion, mechanically prepared by the use of a soap 
solution to emulsify a residuum asphaltic base oil of twenty- 
five to thirty-five per cent asphalt. The emulsion is prepared 
as follows : The soap solution, consisting of twenty-five 
pounds of "cotton seed oil soap to fifty gallons of steam-heated 
water, is prepared. This solution is mixed with 100 gallons 
of crude oil. Three hundred gallons of this mixture is 



376 City Document No. 38. 

agitated about twenty minutes in a 600-gallon water cart 
until the emulsion is complete. An ordinary watering cart 
of 600 gallons capacity is filled with this preparation and 
driven to the roadway. One hundred gallons of the emulsion 
is drawn into a cart, filled with water from the standpipe 
and spread. Two applications are apphed during the first 
four days. The following applications serve from eight to 
twenty-one days according to the weather conditions, loca- 
tions and surface conditions of the road. 

This treatment gives very satisfactory results. The roads 
are dustless, they become coated with a smooth, hard surface 
which is not washed into the gutters, thus adding life to the 
wearing surface of the roadway. There is the disadvantage 
of a shght odor and a wet, oily surface for three or four hours 
until complete penetration. These conditions are more than 
offset, however, by the results gained in laying the dust 
and in the protection and prolongation of the life of the 
roadway.

APPENDIX I. 



REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS OF BOSTON AND 
CAMBRIDGE BRIDGES. 



Appropriation None 

Expenditures ...... $18,524 29 

The commission is composed of two members, one appointed 
by the Mayor of the City of Boston and the other appointed 
by the Mayor of the City of Cambridge. They have charge 
of the care and maintenance of the following seven bridges 
connecting Boston and Cambridge: Brookline Street, Cam- 
bridge, Cambridge Street, Harvard, North Harvard Street, 
Prison Point and Western Avenue to Cambridge. 

As no specific appropriation was made for the work of the 
past year, the Boston share of the expenses was paid directly 
from the appropriation for Bridge Division, Street Depart- 
ment. 

The bridges under the charge of the commission are, in 
general, in need of considerable repairs in the lines of renewal 
of woodwork and painting. This is particularly true of 
Harvard, Cambridge Street, North Harvard Street and 
Western Avenue bridges. 

As usual, the greater portion of the executive work of the 
Commission has been performed by the Cambridge member.
