By which it will be observed that the expense of relief 
and partial support out of the Almshouse is largely in excess 
of the full support of the inmates of the house. 

Our board, after careful deliberation, believe this to be the 
most judicious course to pursue, in dispensing the charities 
committed to our trust, especially where there are families of 
young children, who should be watched over and cared for by 
their natural guardians, and those only who know the love of 
a parent for their own children. 

They will there spend their youthful and happy days with 
no alienated affections ; and, if poor, in their mature years the 
stigma which invests those who have passed through the por 
tals of an Almshouse will not rest on them. 

And here we may express our views briefly in regard to 
the duty of Overseers of the Poor towards those for whom 
our State has made us liable when they fall into distress, and 
have no other means of relief. 

In our early history, and before the establishment of the 
Almshouse system, provision was made generally at the an- 
nual town meeting for the care of the poor, which was in 
most cases by offering them at auction ; when, of course, the 
meanest man, with but a very slight apology for a soul, was 
declared to be the lucky person : and the widows and orphan 
children were assigned to his tender mercies, which not un- 
frequently were very cruel. 

But, in process of time, what seemed a better way suggested 
itself in the Almshouse system ; where from the infirmities of 
age or disease a home might be found. But, like all other 
charities, this mode has been subject to imposition and abuse ; 



11 



82 REPORT. 

and a class of idle and di'ssolute persons have claimed a right 
to support, when they were abundantly able to earn their own 
living, and, if not wholly devoid of shame, would shun such an 
institution as not designed for them : and too often we believe 
Overseers of the Poor have encouraged such, when, if a 
prompt refusal had been met, the applicant would have gone, 
and in an honest way obtained his own living. We think 
the managers of our Almshouses should in all kindness con- 
sider the condition of the applicant ; and, if temporary relief 
only is desired, let it be granted : at the same time, endeavor to 
assist the person to some employment, and in such ways as 
will show to him, that, with health and strength, he can be 
one of nature's noblemen, and care for himself. 

In the various and trying discharge of our duties, we have 
as far as possible endeavored to pursue such a course as we 
believe will commend itself to every thoughtful and candid 
mind, both in regard to its domestic economy and indulgence, 
in allowing a retentive pride of manliness, which in eight out 
of ten cases ought to be encouraged, toward the applicant. 

Our work has somewhat exceeded that of the last year, as 
a natural result of an increase in population. With such in- 
crease, there will be some who have not brought their pocket- 
books with them. Were it not so, we might in hopeful anticipa- 
tion look forward to that joyful day, when no pinching hand of 
want should seek relief from the Overseers of Poor, and 
.charity in kindness and long-suffering should cease to exist, 
for want of occasion for its healthy exercise. 

The whole number of families relieved during the year has 
been three hundred and eighty-five, an increase of sixty-two 
over the previous year, representing more than thirteen hun- 
dred persons. Fourteen hundred and thirteen orders have been 
given for groceries, fuel, or cash. Eighty-one persons have 
been medically treated; and we have buried twenty-three 
adults and eleven children, and sent twenty-seven persons to 
the State Almshouse. 

Of the total number of families relieved, one hundred and 
nineteen are those of soldiers who served on the quota of this 



REPORT. 83 

city in the late war, being an increase of thirty-four over the 
previous year, and more than fifty per cent, of the increase 
during the year. 

We must express our disapproval to this mode of relief, 
furnished in the manner it now is. Not denying its legality, we 
fail to see why a man who abundantly provided for his family 
before engaging in the service should, by such act, place him- 
self and family before the community as dependent on the 
public for support and paupers. 

Trusting to the wisdom of our General and State Govern- 
ments, and believing that eventually a system of relief of a 
more substantial nature will be adopted by them, for the 
present we must meet and relieve as the law provides ; but 
with deep regret that a different way, and such as would better 
comport with the inducement held out when the country was 
in peril, and men must be had to maintain our national ex- 
istence, has not already been devised. 

Having briefly reviewed the work of the board in its general 
features for the past year, we would not be unmindful of those 
who have contributed of their time and means in furtherance 
of our benevolent work, prominent amongst whom has been 
the Rev. Mr. Barnard. 

A man of long experience, and having a heart in the right 
place, a hand to act in unison with its pulsation, has always 
cheerfully acted with us in every desired benevolent work. 
The ladies, too, with their natural sympathy for the poor and 
less favored, have been diligent in their missions of relief to 
the sick and suffering. Whether as almoners of public charities, 
or from private means, their kind and generous contributions 
have alleviated much suffering, and in silence caused many to 
rejoice for the liberal hand that withholdeth not, extended for 
their relief. 

Selected as we have been to this duty, by the suffrage of 
our fellow-citizens, it ha* been our earnest desire, first, to meet 
all applicants in a proper spirit of kindness, and, after due in- 
vestigation, send no one empty away who apparently was in 



84 « REPORT. 

need of the sought-for relief ; and second, to carefully guard 
against any waste or misuse of the means committed to our 
trust for the relief of our worthy poor. 

With an approving conscience, we must submit to the public 
to decide whether we, as good stewards, have been faithful to 
that trust. 

Very respectfully submitted by 

Overseers of the Poor. 

DAVID B. WESTON, Secretary.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 



In Board of Mayor and Aldermen, March 27, 1871. 
Referred to Committee on Fire Department, and sent down 
for concurrence.

ENGINEER'S EEPOET. 



Engineer's Office, March, 1871. 
To His Honor the Mayor and City Council : — 

Gentlemen, — Section 6th of the Eules and Regulations of 
the Fire Department requires the Chief Engineer annually, in 
the month of March, to make a report of the condition of the 
Department, the age, residence, occupation, of the members 
belonging to the same, the houses and apparatus, cost of main- 
taining the same, all losses that may occur, all accidents, the 
number of fires, description of the buildings, names of the 
owners, and the insurance thereon, and the number of reser- 
voirs and hydrants where water can be obtained. And, in 
compliance with this section, I most respectfully, submit the 
following report : — 

FORCE OF THE DEPARTMENT. 

The Department consists of a Chief Engineer and four as- 
sistants ; four hose companies, of twenty men each ; one steam- 
engine and hose company, of twenty-three men, including the 
engineer, foreman, and driver, who are permanently employed ; 
one hook and ladder company, of thirty men : making in all a 
total of one hundred and thirty-eight men. They have in 
charge five four-wheeled carriages, two steam fire-engines, and 
one hook and ladder carriage. 

Our duty during the past year has been very arduous. 
We have on several occasions been called upon to respond 
to the alarm bells of this city when there were six or 
eight buildings on fire at once ; but, thanks to the Mystic and 
the alacrity of the members of the Department, Ave soon had 



CHIEF engineer's REPORT. 87 

the fire under control : and I know of no year while I have 
been connected with the Department that it has been more 
prompt and efficient than during the past year. 

HOUSES. 

The Houses of the different companies are in fair condition. 
Hose Company No. 4's house has during the past year been 
put in good condition : the bell-tower has been removed, and 
the inside of the building greatly improved. 

Hose Company No. 2's house has had the bell-tower re- 
moved, and the inside of the house renovated twice. The first 
time, necessity called for it ; and the last time was occasioned 
by .a fire occurring on the premises : and at the present time 
the house is in good condition. And I know of no very ex- 
tensive repairs needed on any houses connected with the 
Department for the ensuing year. 

APPARATUS. 

During the past year the Howard Steamer has been rebuilt 
by Cook, E,ymes, & Co. ; and I pronounce her at the present 
time as good, if not better, than when she was new. The 
Steamer Mystic has been at the shop of the same firm, and had 
a good overhauling, and thoroughly repaired at considerable 
expense. Both engines are at the present time in good condition 
to go into service at any and all times when called upon. 

The carriages for the past year have had no very extensive 
repairs. The running part of the same are in good condition ; 
but, for the ensuing year, most if not all the hose-carriages 
will need repainting, and some other repairs, more especially 
the carriage under the charge of the Howard Company, which 
needs new wheels and other repairs to make her compete with 
other carriages connected with the Department. 

HOSE. 

There is connected with the Department about six thousand 
feet of leather hose, of which three thousand feet is good, and 



88 CHIEF engineer's report. 

in fair condition to attach to a hydrant, but not safe and reli- 
able for the use of steamers. The remaining three thousand 
feet I would recommend to be sold at any price that can be 
obtained. We also have about four thousand feet of Boyd's 
patent hose, with the universal coupling attached to the same ; 
which gives great satisfaction to all parties who use it. And I 
would recommend that during the present year one thousand 
feet more be added to the Department, so that we can be able 
to put one more company in service with the same, to take the 
place of leather. Of the amount of hose now in service in 
the Department, not more than one-third is capable of stand- 
ing the pressure of the steamers ; and, as we have on many 
occasions nearly lost valuable buildings on account of hose 
bursting, and owing to tlie service it has seen, I would re- 
commend that this important branch of the Department be 
replenished as soon as possible. 

FIRE ALARM. 

During the past year the fire alarm has worked well. The 
apparatus has been detached from the bell of the St. Francis 
De Sales Church, and attached to a three thousand pound bell 
on the Warren Schoolhouse. It also has been detached from 
the bell of the St. John's Church, and attached to a three 
thousand five hundred pound bell on the City Hall. In the 
lower and upper part of the city, the fire alarm gives perfect 
satisfaction. There has been some complaint from the citizens 
and firemen near the centre of Ward 3, that they are not 
properly alarmed in case of fire. And, as the distance between 
the Warren School bell and the bell on the Rubber Works is 
greater than between any two alarm bells in the city, I 
would most respectfully recommend that a two thousand five 
hundred pound bell be placed on the Bunker-hill Schoolhouse. 
I would also recommend that a fire alarm box be placed at the 
head of High and Winthrop Streets, and one near the foot of 
Baldwin Street on Main, and another at Prude«ville. With 
these suggestions carried out, I think the alarm would be a 
great deal more perfect than at the present time. 



CHIEF engineer's repokt. 89 

ACCIDENTS. 

There have been no fatal accidents the past year, but some 
narrow escapes. On the evening of May 20, at the fire at F. 
O. Reed & Co's. glove factory, Mr. Albert C. Abbott, a mem- 
ber of Hose Company No. 1, was badly burnt in the face and 
hands by an explosion of naphtha. At the same fire, Mr. 
Albert Smith, Engineer of steamers, lost the end of two fin- 
gers by being caught in the machinery of his engine. At a 
fire in Rideout's stable, on the evening of August 1, Mr. John 
Uatt of Hose Company No. 4 was somewhat injured by falling 
from the hay-loft. At the fire in Tudor Buildings, July 21, 
several members of the Department received slight injuries, 
but none serious. At the fire at Mr. Charles Curtis's stable on 
Lawrence Street, on the morning of December 26, Mr, W. 
E. Bridgett, Secretary of Hose Company No. 3, and Mr. Wm. 
H. Dennis of the Steamer Company, received severe injuries 
by the falling of a floor. 

At an alarm of fire on the morning of February IT, Mr. 
Geo. H. Huff, First Assistant of Hose Company No. 1, fell 
while running with the carriage, and received severe injuries 
to his arm and head. 

Most of the above were provided for by the Charitable As- 
sociation. 

The Charitable Association is still in a prosperous condi- 
tion, although they have been called upon to pay more bene- 
fits than any previous year. It has been the means since its 
organization of helping a good many needy men connected 
with the Department, who have been injured while in the 
performance of their duty. I hope it will continue to receive 
the merited support it deserves from our citizens. 

FINANCES. 

The amount appropriated for the Fire Department for the 
past year was $10,000; expended $11,381.85; being a deficiency 
of ^1,381.85. The amount received for services of steamers and 
sale of old material was $136.00. 

12 



90 . CHIEF engineer's REPORT. 

FIRES AND ALARMS. 

During the year ending March 1, 1871, the Fire Department 
has been called into service by thirty-five fires, to which all or 
part of the Department was in service, — thirty-two slight 
fires and repeating alarms, and twelve needless and false. 
Whole number of alarms, 79. 

Loss from March 1, 1870, to March 1, 1871, 8176,275 ; in- 
surance, $151,495. Total loss, $28,780. 

HYDRANTS. " 

During the past year there has been put in some eight or ten 
new Lowry's hydrants. The whole number now in service is 
120 Lowry's and 36 single hydrants ; and, as the same is now 
under the charge of the Superintendent of Streets, I would 
recommend that they, or any thing appertaining to the Fire 
Department, be transferred to the Board of Engineers. I 
know if this recommendation is carried out, it would be more 
perfect, and give more satisfaction to all parties concerned. 

•NEW LADDER CARRIAGE AND SPARE LADDERS. 

For the last two years it has been fully demonstrated, that 
the city needed more ladders, and a new hook-and-ladder 
truck. I would at this time recommend that there be pur- 
chased for the use of the department a first-class hook-and- 
ladder truck, to be located as near the centre of the city as 
possible ; and as this apparatus is one of the first we need, 
and in case of hard going the last we get, I would recommend 
that the said carriage be run by horses at every alarm. There 
are spare ladders located at the several schoolhouses, and at 
the houses of Hose Companies 1, 2, and 4, and at the City Hall. 
There is also in reserve one two-wheeled carriage at the Poor 
Farm, with two hundred and fifty feet of hose, and at the store- 
room of the Department on Winthrop Street, one two-wheeled 
hose carriage, and five hose sleds for winter use. 



CHIEF engineer's REPORT. 91 



CONCLUSION. 



In closing this report, I would thank the Citj Government 
for the respect and courtesy that they have shown me at all 
times, also for favors that have been asked for, and speedily 
granted. To the City Marshal and men under his charge 
thanks are due, for assistance rendered at many times during 
the year. For' services rendered by many of our exempt 
members, I would return thanks. Will many of our citizens, 
who have at many times while we have been on duty given us 
much encouragement, please accept thanks. To my assistants, 
for the able and faithful manner they have supported me dur- 
ing the past year, I desire to return thanks more sincerely 
and gratefully felt than any words at my command can express. 
To the officers and members of the Department, I would say, 
that words are wholly inadequate to convey to you the feel- 
ings of my heart ; and I hope that the noble and invaluable 
services that you have rendered me and the inhabitants of our 
beloved city will not go unrewarded. 

All of which I most respectfully submit to j^our honorable 

body.

INSTEUCTIONS TO KEY-HOLDEKS. 

1 . On the breaking out of a fire, notice sliould be immediately communicated to 
the nearest alarm box, keys of which are always in the hands of the police, and re- 
sponsible persons in the vicinity of the boxes. 

2. Key holders, upon the discovery or positive information of a fire, will unlock 
the box, pull down the slide or hook once, and let go. This gives the desired alarm 
all over the city, repeating itself four times. 

3. All persons giving fire-alarms are requested to remain by the box a moment, 
and, if no clicking is heard in the box, pull again ; if you still hear no clicking, go 
to the next nearest box, and give the alarm from that. 

4. Never signal for a fire seen at a distance. Never touch the hook except to 
give an alarm of fire. Be sure the box is locked before leaving it. Give an alarm 
for no cause other than an actual fire. Do not give an alarm for a chimney. 

5. Owners and occupants of buildings are requested to inform themselves of the 
locations of the signal boxes near their property ; also the places where the keys 
are kept. Be sure the alarm is properly given. One single stroke of the bells and 
gongs is not given for an alarm of fire. 

6. Alarms will be sounded upon the fire bells thus : for box 5, five strokes 1-1-1- 
1-1, with short intervals, and repeating. For box 32, three strokes 1-1-1, a pause, 
then two strokes 1-1, a pause, and repeating. Alarms for other numbers are given 
in a like manner. 

I. P. MAGOUN, Chief Engineer.
