OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



REP OUT. 



To THE Honorable City Council: 

The Board of Overseers of the Poor would submit the follow- 
ing report of their work and financial condition, for the year 
just closed. No year since the breaking out of the Rebellion 
has witnessed more startling events, each tending to depress' 
the laborer in his hire, and deprive the poor man of the limited 
means of supporting his dependent family^ The result has 
been fully apparent by the increased demands on this depart- 
ment, and the amount of relief granted which the imperative 
tiecessities of the applicant seemed to require. We have, 
however, experienced no pecuniary embarrassment, and again 
would express our gratitude for the ample means granted by 
the City Council, by which we have been enabled to meet our 
numerous and pressing demands, and close the year free from 
debt. The following exhibit will show our resources and 
expenditures for the year :

We may represent the Almshouse buildings as in good re- 
pair; some paint and whitewash, however, wUl be required 
to give them a neat and wholesome appearance in the 
spring, though not at present absolutely requiring further 
improvements. We hope the City will at an early day intro- 
duce steam for heating, and gas for lighting, the house. We 
think, as a matter of safety, economy and comfort, the institu- 
tion should be furnished with these modern improvements. 

Additional security in case of fire should be provided. The 
distressing event which occurred in our neighboring City a few 
weeks since has shown the necessity of ample provision being 
made ready, in cases of emergency. We hope to have such 



OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 99 

arrangements made as will insure perfect safety in case of 
fire, and would recommend that one or more lire escapes be 
provided for that purpose. 

The bath boiler in the culinary department has never an- 
swered the purpose for which it was designed, although suffi- 
cient fuel is consumed to keep an abundant supply of hot 
water at all times. We desire to have it so utilized as to sup- 
ply the necessity for which it was established, which, we be- 
lieve, could be accomplished with no additional expense for 
fuel. The well-earned reputation of the Superintendent of 
the Almshouse, with the eminent qualij&cations of his wife as 
Matron, is a prominent and very important feature in the 
management of the institution. 

We had 45 inmates in the house under their care one year 
ago, since which time 92 have been admitted, making a total 
of 137. Of those admitted, 31 were lodgers and 61 were ad- 
mitted for support During the same time, 31 lodgers and 49 
inmates have been discharged, and 8 removed by death, 
leaving our present number 49, 11 of whom are on ac- 
count of other cities and towns, 6 on private account, 4 at 
work for their board, and 28 entitled to support by the City. 
The aggregate ages of those who have died were 486 years, 
the average age 60 years and 9 months ; and the united ages 
of 10 of our oldest inmates are 754 years, an average of over 
75 years. 

Of the inmates, 5 are insane, and 6 are idiotic ; 3 of 
them are incurable, being demented by epileptic fits. Upon 
the breaking out of the small-pox in the City, the Board 
deemed precautionary measures necessary to avoid the disease. 
The privileges enjoyed by the inmates were restricted, and no 
case of the dreaded disease, we are pleased to report, has been 
in the institution. We may report as good health has been 
enjoyed as could reasonably be expected in a family so largely 
composed of a class afflicted with all the diseases flesh could 
well inherit; most of the deaths having been the result of 
physical decay rather than from any local disease. 



ipO OJERSEERS OF THE POOR. 

The family fully appreciate the liberal prpyisipqs made by 
the City for their comfort arid home asspci^atipna., f^l;ie re- 
ligious services held Sabbath afternoons have been much enr 
joyed by those who were unable to attpnd services at their

trust committed to their more immediate care, have b^een dilir 
gent in their; duty, that no pn^ Plight suffer for v^hptu ample 
provision is made by the City. They are fully confident that, 
with the manifold requirements of their office, they have withr 
held no relief that vv^as in i]?ejr proyli^ce ^p b^^^towpn thj^ ; de-

Our year just closed shows an excess coUqc,te^j bjy t^he ^{Sec- 
retary over the previous year of $364 73, apd an e^pess, of 
expenditure over the previous year of $1367 ^06.; This (Jepartr 
ment, being credited with the amount collected for disburse- 
ments made by the Board, have been enabled to e:5|:tend their 
relief some 60 per cent.; pve^and above the su,i;n appropriated 
for their use, as will appear by our financial statement. The 
whole number of families relieved directly from this office 
during the year jias b^en, 458, an excess of 105 families over 
the number aided the previous year. The number of disburset 
ments made to these families has been, for groceries, fuel and 
provisions, 1680, and for cash 226, making a total of 19y6t, 
which is an excess of 488 over the previous yieat^ We have 
also granted niedical i^elief to 91 families in addition to the 
above number, to most of jyhotn we have allowed medicine, 
as they were unablej t;p, procure it theniselves. It thus appears 
that 549 families liave applied to this Board for relief whieh 
has beet^ granted,. Many of the families relieved are largely 
represented with ypung children, and, should we average the 
whole number of families at 4 in each family, we have the 
total number of persons assisted during the year, 2196. Of 
the whole number of faiiiilies aided, we find but 72 to be a

our benevolent work, th^ several charitable organizations of 
the City have found ample scope for all resoiirces at their

not allowed the last' rites held sacred for departed friends; 
some of the number were strangers, whose resting place with- 
in the hallowed precinct can only be designated as the un- 
known dead. Eight of the above number have died at the 
Almshouse. One, the widow of a revolutionary soldier, hav- 
ing celebrated her 88th birthday, on the morning of her entree 
upon her 89th year, while patiently waiting, the Master 
called for her, releasing the decrepit form from its bodily suf- 
ferings, leaving many kind friends in whose hearts the name 
of Mary White will ever be of precious memory. 

During the year, we have had 23 persons in the Insane Hos- 
pitals at Worcester and Taunton,' three of whom have died, 
one has been discharged, and nineteen still remain. Two of 
those who died were sisters, and their aged mother, now in her 
93d year, resides in this City. We have had during the same 
tjme 1,8 families residing in other cities and towns assisted by 
such cities and towns at the expense of this City, and one 
person at the State Workhouse for whose support we have 
paid one dollar per week. 

During the year we have had official dealings and corre- 
spondence with sixty-three cities and towns in the Common- 
wealth, requiring careful investigation, by which we have been 
able to adjust controverted questions, and avoid the necessity 
of resorting to legal tribunals for twelve men to adjust what 
can be much cheaper and more satifactorily done by two. 
What formerly occupied six pages of our letter'^book in a year, 
has required eighty-five pages the past year, and we are pleased 
to report the pleasant relation existing in our official duty, be- 
lieving the same is reciprocal, and hope for its long continue 
ance. 

The Legislature passed the following act April 27th, 
1865 : — 

Chap. 162, Sect. 1. No city or town authorities shall be al- 
lowed to send to either of the State Almshouses any person 
infected with small-pox, or other disease dangerous to the 
public health, nor any other sick person whose health would 



OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. ^ 103 

be endangered by removal ; but all such persons, liable to be 
maini allied by the Commonwealth, shall be suppoited during 
such sickness by the city or town in which they are taken 
sick, and notice of such sickness shall be given to the Board 
of State Charities, who shall have aulhority to examine the 
case, and order the removal of the patient if they deem it expe- 
dient. 

Sect. 2. The expense incurred by any city or town under 
the provisions of the first section of this act, after notice 
shall have been given as therein required, and the bills for said 
support having been approved by the agent of the Board of 
State charities, shall be reimbursed by the Commonwealth to 
an amount not exceeding the rate of the average weekly 
cost of the support of similar patients at the Rainsford Island 
Hospital. 

Sect. 3. Any Mayor, or Overseers of the Poor, who shall 
knowingly offend against the provisions of the first v'^ection of 
this act, shall be subject to a penalty of not less than fifty, 
nor more than one hundred dollars. 

This law was evidently designed, for a judicious and 
humane purpose, to obviate an emergency frequently arising 
with Overseers of Poor in the discharge of their official 
duties, imposing, as it does, additional labor and burdens on 
cities and towns. We believe it was the design of the Legis- 
lature that its requirements should be kept in good faith by 
each interested party ; and, with abundant cause for feeling 
aggrieved at the delays in adjusting our bills, we are unwilling 
to believe that any desire exists, on the part of those upon 
whom it devolves, to avail themselves of any special powers 
delegated by the act. We have notified the State in seventy- 
six instances during the year, during which time they have 
paid $257 19, being about 20 per cent, of the amount claimed. 
As we are required to make an investigation, give the notice, 
grant such relief as may be required, make a bill with a history 
of the person relieved in each case, and make oath to the cor- 
rectness of the same, and as some of the persons were sick 
for many weeks, necessarily a large expense was incurred. 
And an average of $3.38 paid by the State is really a very 



stoall compensation for the amount paid by the City, anfJ^t 
labor necessary in caring for them. We hope the law will be 
complied with, or, if defective, so amended as to give us the 
®;moiint; i»:ftill which 'justice and equity! reqniaiej : s' '^ oliiifei lo

in respect to the method of relief afforded to the poor, with 
those who advocate the almshouse as the only place for supl^ 
support. The reply of a wise . philosopher to the inquiry of 
how man could best elevate his condition was, first, by action J 
second, by action ; and third, by action. Let out poor be en*

recommend, particularly where there are young children. If, 
^r a few years, the relief afforded should be nearly or quite 
equal to their full support in the Almshouse, their tender sen- 
sibilities will be protected and saved from any refiectipja of an 
unpleasant nature in their mature years. . • i

REPORT. 



Engineer's Office, 

Charlestown Fire Department, 

March 1, 1873. 

To His Honor the Mayor, and City Council: 

Gentlemen, — In obedience to Sect. 6 of the ordinance 
governing the Fire Department, it becomes my duty, as Chief 
Engineer, to present to you the Annual Report of the Fire 
Department of Charlestown, — its condition ; number of 
members, their ages, occupation, and residence ; the appara- 
tus and houses in charge of the several companies ; member 
of fires and alarms ; loss and insurance on the same, as near 
as could be obtained ; amount expended for the support of 
the department ; number of reservoirs, hydrants, wells, &c., 
where water can be obtained in case of fire. 

FORCE AND CONDITION OF DEPARTMENT 
AND APPARATUS. 

The Department consists of a Chief Engineer, four assist- 
ants, and ninety-one members, divided as follows : Four 
hose companies, of thirteen men each, including drivers ; one 
hook and ladder company, of twenty-three men, including 
driver ; one steam fire-engine company, of fifteen men, includ- 
ing engineer, driver, and fireman, and one spare driver. The 



108 REPORT OP THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 

engineer, fireman, and drivers are permanently employed. 
"These companies have in their charge four hose carriages, two 
steam fire engines, and one hook and ladder carriage, all fully 
equipped and ready for service. The apparatus is in perfect 
order, with the exception of the steamer Mystic, vidiich needs 
extensive repairs. The houses are all in good order, and 
need but slight repair. There are also belonging to the 
Department two hand jumpers, one of which is in service 
at the Poor Farm; and one fuel wagon, which needs repairs. 
There are connected with the Department, and in service, 
eight horses, all of which are in- good condition, wilh one 
exception; one of the horses employed on the hook and 
ladder truck is not considered a proper horse for the service 
expected of him, and I would recommend that he be ex- 
changed for one more adapted to meet the service required. 
The Department, as we are aware, has been changed during 
the year from a volunteer to a paid system. On October 1, 
1872, the paid Department went into commission ; and I 
have no hesitation in saying that it has proved very satisfac- 
tory to the City Council and the citizens generally. The De- 
partment has been prompt and efficient, and has responded to 
every call with alacrity. The members are mostly of the old 
Department, and are considered good and reliable men. There 
have been purchased during the year, for the new Department, 
four horse hose-carriages and one hook and ladder carriage. 
Three of the hose carriages were built by Messrs. Leverick & 
Co., of New York, and are considered good and reliable car- 
riages. The hook and ladder carriage was built by the 
same firm, and, after a few alterations by the Board of Engi- 
neers, is now considered to be in good condition. It carries 
seventeen ladders, and is otherwise fully equipped. Hose car- 
riage No. 3 was built by Hunneman & Co., and is considered 
a first-class piece of apparatus. During the year, the steamer 
Howard was exchanged in part payment for a new first-class 
engine from the Amoskeag Manufactory, of Manchester, N. H. 
The engine was delivered in July last ; and I can safely say 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 109 

that in this engine our city can boast of as perfect a piece of 
apparatus as can be found. She has been put to a severe test 
on two or three occasions, one of which was the great fire 
in Boston, and has proved to be equal to the task. I would 
recommend that the steamer Mystic be exchanged in part 
payment for another of the same class, and that it be put in 
service in Ward One, to be run in connection with Hose 
Co. No. 3, on Winthrop Street. We are all aware of the very 
combustible nature of the materials of which the buildings 
on Bunker Hill are constructed, being chiefly of wood, where, 
in case of a high wind, our hydrant streams would be of little 
service, as the water pressure in that locality is not sufficient 
to be of the ability expected in case of a large fire. And in 
Ward One there is a large amount of valuable wharf property, 
and high buildings, where a steamer would be of more service 
than our hydrants. I hope this matter will receive the earliest 
attention of the City Council. 

HOSE. 

There are at the present time belonging to the Department 
3,900 feet of leather hose, which I consider not reliable for hard 
service, and not a foot of it for steamer pressure. I would 
recommend that it be sold or exchanged, if possible, and good 
serviceable hose be purchased in its stead. We also have 
7,400 feet of Boyd's cotton hose, most of which is in good 
order. I hope that this important branch of the Department 
will receive the earliest attention of your honorable body. 

ACCIDENTS. 

There have been no very serious accidents during the year, 
except in the case of Mr. Martin TurnbuU, of Washington 
Hose Co. No. 3, who was badly injured at the large fire in 
Boston, Nov. 9th. He was well taken care of by the Relief 
Committee, of Boston, and our Charitable Association. Mr. 
Geo. W. Spurr, of Massachusetts Hook and Ladder Co., was 



110 REPORT OF THE CHIEE ENGIISTEER. 

injured by being run over by Washington Hose Carriage, 
July 29th. Mr. Thomas Williams, cf Hose 4, was slightly 
injured in running to an alarm, Nov. 5th. 

Oar Charitable Association has been reorofanized, owinar to 

O 7 

the change of the Department. Although the Association is 
not very abundantly supplied with funds, it is in a flourishing 
condition. I hope it will be remembered by our citizens in 
the future, as it has been in the past. 

PROTECTION FROM FIRES. 

I wish to call the attention of the City Council to the neces- 
sity of immediate action to prevent the erection of wooden 
buildings having no preventives against fires ; many such 
buildings having been erected without partition Walls, and 
with defective chimneys, &c. There have also been erected 
brick buildings which the Board deem unsafe for firemen to 
enter in case of fire. I would recommend that an ordinance 
be passed giving the Board of Engineers power to act in such 
cases, as the present ordinance does not give any such power 
to the Board. 

HYDRANTS AND RESERVOIRS. 

The whole number of hydrants now in service is 125 Lowry's, 
and 36 single. New hydrant chucks are being constructed to 
take the place of the old ones now used, they having been in 
use since the introduction of water, and, being out of repair, 
are not considered of sufiicient strength to be reliable, but 
will be repaired, and kept as a reserve in the difFdrent houses 
of the Department. There are 38 reservoirs and wells where 
water can be obtained. Within two or three years, two large 
reservoirs have been filled up and done away with by the 
Committee on Streets, as I know, against the wishes of the 
Board of Engineers — one at the corner of Main and Chapman 
Streets, a very combustible neighborhood ; and the other at the 
corner of Bow and Richmond Streets, another wooden terri- 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. Ill 

tory. I think this a very poor plan, for, in case of accident to 
our water-pipes, the only reserve is our reservoirs. At the fire 
at the Harvard School House, a break in our pipes caused a 
serious delay. I recommend that supply pipes be connected 
from the water-pipes with our reservoirs, so that we can keep 
them full and in good condition at all times. 

FIRE ALARM. 

Our fire alarm still continues to work well. During the 
year a 2500 lb. bell has been placed on the Bunker Hill fechool 
House, on Baldwin Street, and I can safely say that our city 
can boast of as perfect a fire alarm as any city in the Union. 
We have 22 stations where alarms can be sounded. I would 
recommend that an alarm-box be placed near the corner of 
Richmond and Canal Streets, and another between boxes 34 
and 24, in the vicinity of Chelsea and Prospect Streets ; and 
one in the vicinity of Waterman Mills, on Medford Street. 
These I consider are needed, owing to the very combustible 
material in those vicinities. I would also recommend that 
better accommodations be provided in the steamer house, for 
the batteries, &c., connected with the alarm. 

FINANCES. 

The amount appropriated for the Department during the year 

was, $33,600 00 

Special appropriation, • 4,000 00 

Received sale of hose carriages, 1,500 00

112 REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 



FIRES AND ALARMS. 

The Department has been called out to fifty-eight alarms 
during the year ending March 1st, 1873, nineteen of which 
were working fires. The Department has rendered assistance 
at three fires in Boston, two in Somerville, and one each in 
Cambridge and Chelsea. The whole amount of loss during 
the year from March 1st, 1872, to March 1st, 1873, was 
|74,685; insurance, 57,925 ; total loss, $16,760. 

CONCLUSION. 

In closing my report, I would take the occasion to tender 
my thanks to the members of the City Council for the respect 
and courtesy shown the. Board at all times ; to the exempt 
members of the Department for services rendered ; to the 
Chief of Police, and members of the force, for the valuable 
assistance rendered the Department during the year ; to the 
assistants associated with me, as I cannot let this opportu- 
nity pass without thanking them all for their prompt and 
faithful aid given on every occasion ; to the officers and 
members, for the prompt and faithful manner in which they 
have performed all duties assigned them ; and to the Chiefs 
and officers and members of the Boston, Cambridge, and 
SomerviUe Departments, for assistance rendered our Depart- 
ment during the year. 

Re ^pectfully submitted.

INSTRUCTIONS TO KEY-IIOLDEIIS. 

1. On the breaking out of a fire, notice should be immedi" 
ately communicated to the nearest alarm-box, keys of which 
are always in the hands of the police, and respons^ible persons 
in ihe vicinity of the boxes. 

2. Key-holders, upon ihe diecovery or posilive 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. AH persons giving fire alarms are requested to remain 
^ by the box a moment, and,, if no clicking is heard in the box, 



134 REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 

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 location of signal boxes near their 
property ; also the places udiere the keys are kept. Be sure 
the alarm is properly given. One signal 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, ViT'ith short intervals, and repeat- 
ing; for box 32, three strokes, 1-1-1, a pause, then two strokes, 
1-1, a pause, and repeating. Alarms for other numbers are

11 E P O R T . 



To His Honor the Mayor, and Gentlemen of the City Council. 

The following report of the doings of this office for the past 
year is offered for your consideration. 

The number of visits made to city patients at their homes 
has been 720, and at my office I have received 57 ; making in 
all 777, exclusive of attendance at the Almshouse and Small- 
pox Hospital. 

Whenever sent for by the Superintendent, I have visited 
the Almshouse, and at such other times as I thought necessary ; 
making in all 62 visits. The general health of the inmates 
has been good, the Galls for the physician having been for 
those who either were invalids at entrance, or those suffering 
from the diseases incident to old age. Scarlet fever made its 
appearance in December, and by it we lost an interesting 
child, the adopted daughter of the Superintendent. The other 
deaths have been, from pneumonia and scrofula, 1 each ; 4 from 
consumption, and 3 from old age. There have been 2 births. 

The Police Department have called for my services at the 
station-house 10 times ; the attendance being generally to 
those who were suffering from the effects of liquor, or who, 
while under its influence, had met with some bodily injury. 



140 llEl>ORl: Ot* THE CITY I'HYSICIAN. 

By direction of the Committee on health, ftee vaecitiation 
has been continued weekly at the Cit}'' Hall, except during the 
hot months of summer. Durinor the extreme excitement con- 
sequent upon the prevalence of small-pox, a physician was 
in attendance every afternoon, and two evenings in each week, 
to vaccinate free of charge any who might apply. The whole 
number of vaccinations performed, including primary and re» 
vaccinations, has been 2049 : of these, 250 have returned, 
showing a good result ; 133 were unsuccessful ; and of the 
1666 remaining, the result is unknown. The virus used has 
been carefully selected from healthy-children, or obtained from 
the cow by responsible parties. The latter has been more 
often used, and with all who preferred it. 

I have felt it my duty to urge upon the Committee on 
Health the necessity of having public vaccinators go from 
house to house, and see that all the inhabitants were vacci- 
nated ; and I am confident that, had the suggestion been 
followed, the epidemic would have been cut short. 

The same suggestion is again made as was offered in my 
last report; namely, that, before admission to any of the public 
schools, the applicant be required to bring a certificate of suc= 
cessful vaccination from a physician in good standing. Among 
the children attending the primary schools, I have occasionally 
found those who were entirely unprotected from small-pox. 

The duties of the physician in connection with the Health 
Department have been much increased by the presence of the 
prevailing epidemic. Since the 18th December, it has been a 
part of the physician's duty to visit such persons as have suf- 
fered from it, and, if sufficiently recovered, to order the re- 
moval of the red flag. At a later period the fumigator was 
placed under my orders, and I have since seen that infected 
houses and clothing were properly disinfected by him. 

During the year ending to-day, there have been 340 cases of 
small-pox reported to the Health Officer; there can be no 
doubt that many cases have not been. At this time, there are 
10 cases, distributed throughout the city, exclusive of those in 



REPORT GF THE CITY PHYSICIAN. 141 

the Hospital.. The Small-pox Hospital was opened for pa- 
tients the 18th February, since which time 11 patients have 
been admitted, and 3 have been discharged well; thus far no 
death has occurred. I have visited there daily, one or more 
times, as circumstances required. There are at present four 
male and four female patients ; only one (male) being at all 
dangerous. 

During the last month, five cases of cerebro-spinal menin*- 
gitis have come to my knowledge ; only two of the cases, as 
yet, having proved fatal. 

Among the city patients not at the Almshouse, there have 
been 2 births, and 16 deaths. The deaths have been as fol- 
lows : From measles, scarlet fever, cirrhosis of liver, cholera 
infantum, 1 each ; from consumption, and valvular disease of 
heart, 2 each ; and 8 from small-pox. 

Very respectfully,

REPORT 



BRIDGE COMMISSIONER 



REPORT. 



Chaulestown, Jan. 20, 1873. 

To His Honok the Mayor, and the City CouisrciL: 

Gentlemen, — In conformity vnth. the ordinance, the Com- 
missioner appointed by the City of Charlestown, for the care 
and maintenance of the Charles River and Warren Bridges, 
respectfully submits the following Annual Report. 

By the Act of the Legislature in 1870, the Commissioners 
were required to build, " in lieu of the existing draw in War- 
ren Bridge, a draw with a clear opening of thirty-six feet, in 
such a position as the Harbor Commissioners may determine." 
The necessity of extensive repairs to this bridge, and the im- 
portance of making such alterations and improvements in the 
draw of Charles River Bridge as would render it entirely reli- 
able as a highway between the two cities, prevented the 
Commissioners from proceeding with th-e work on Warren 
Bridge until this was accomplished ; and they were not able to 
obtain the plans and the approval of the Harbor ComiTiission- 
ers, and commence the work on Warren Bridge, until Septem- 
ber. It was the intention of the Commissioners to extend 
and reconstruct the draw, replank the piers, put in new bulk- 
heads, and repair the bridge with granite blocks, all of which 



146 REPORT OF THE BRIDGE COMMISSIONER. 

would have been done within the estimate presented to the 
City Council when the annual appropriation was made ; but, 
from various causes, over which the Commissioners had no 
control, the expense has exceeded both the estimate and the 
appropriation. 

On submitting the plans to the Harbor Commissioners, as 
required by the Act, they objected to the proposed draw, inas- 
much as it would require such an extension of the pier towards 
the Fitchburg Raiboad bridge as to render it difficult for ves- 
sels to pass through without damage. Under these circum- 
stances it was found that the only draw that could be used to 
obviate this objection was that known as the counter-balance 
pivot. 

The adoption of this form of draw involved the making of 
a foundation pile pier in the centre of the bridge, and the rais- 
ing of the grade of the bridge two feet, to suffer the draw to 
pass over the water-pipe on the north side. It was necessary 
also to remove the buildings on the piers, as the new draw 
would require much of the space occupied by them, and for 
the purpose of re planking the whole pier. These buildings, 
except the Superintendent's house, were too much dilapidated 
to be preserved; and they were accordingly destroyed, and new 
ones have been erected, at a cost of $2,000. The raising of 
the grade has been very expensive, as it required the taking up 
of a large quantity of dock-mud, originally laid on the tim- 
bers, which had become dry, and hard to remove. The ex- 
pense was also enhanced by the necessity of raising the curb- 
stones on brick foundations, and the elevation of the side- 
walks and bulk-heads. In short, the bridge, instead of being 
repaired as was contemplated by the Commissioners, has been, 
with the exception of the piles and floor of the bridge, entirely 
rebuilt. The Commissioners are gratified in being able to state 
that all the work has been done in a most thorough manner, 
and they believe at a less cost for material and labor than they 
anticipated, and that it will be many years before this bridge 
vvdll require extensive repairs. Notwithstanding the bridge has 



REPORT OF THE BRIDGE COMMISSIONER. 147 

been almost entirely reconstructed, the public travel was inter- 
rupted only five weeks. 

On account of the strong winds and rapid current, it has fre- 
quently been difficult to pass a vessel through the draw with- 
out delay and inconvenience to the public travel. The Commis- 
sioners have therefore decided to try steam instead of horse 
power, as the former can be used not only for opening and 
closing the draw, but, by means of a windlass, can assist a 
vessel in its passage through the bridge. If the experiment 
does not prove satisfactory, the engine can be disposed of, and 
the horse-power re-introduced at a small expense ; but, if 
it is successful, the advantage will be very great. 

As the Commissioners disagreed v;ith the Fitchburg Rail- 
road Company as to their being liable for the expense of rais- 
ing a portion of the buildings belonging to the railroad to the 
new grade of the bridge, by mutual agreement the question 
was referred to the City Solicitor, of Charlestown, and Henry 
W. Bragg, Esq., who decided the law in favor of the Rail- 
road, and the expense must consequently be paid from the 
bridge fund. 

The sidewalk on the north side, over the water-pipe, has been 
covered with asphalt; and, contrary to the anticipations of the 
Commissioners, about $500 of this expense has to be paid by 
the bridge, instead of the Water Board. 

The number of times the draw on Warren Bridge has been 
opened for the passage of vessels from Jan. 1, 1872, to Jan. 1, 
1873, is 7,724, being an increase of 600 during the year. 

CHARLES RIVER BRIDGE. 

Preparatory to making the alterations and repairs on War- 
ren Bridge, important improvements in the machinery of the 
draw of this bridge were made, that no possible accident might 
occur while the Warren Bridge was closed to public travel. 
This was rendered more imperative from the fact that, by the 
splitting of one of the steel friction rolls, the principal truck 



148 REPORT or THE BRIDGE COMMISSIONER. 

was broken, and considerable damage done to the draw. This 
accident required several new trucks and gear wheels ; and, 
although it involved considerable expense, all defective or weak 
parts were removed. The draw has since been entirely satis- 
factory in its operations, and is now in excellent order. The 
fender guards of both bridges have been rebuilt, and the prin- 
cipal expenditures for the coming year will be in providing 
new bulk-heads, and repairing the roadway on Charles River 
Bridge. 

The number of times the draw on Charles Uiver Bridge 
has been opened for the passage of vessels from January 1st, 
1872, to January 1st, 1873, is 10,270. 

I remain, 

Very respectfully, your obdt. servant, 

GEO. H. LONG, 

Commissioner on part of Charlestown, 

Accompanying this report is a detailed account of receipts 
and expenditures for the year. This will be found in the
