*The Debt of the Cemetery is kept separately from the ordinary City Debt, and 
provision is made for the payment of the same by the proceeds of the sale of lots in the 
grounds, as will be seen by the following section from the Act obtained from the Leg- 
islature : — 

Section 4. "The proceeds of sales of lots or rights of burial in said Cemetery 
shall be paid into the City Treasury, to be kept separate from any other funds of the 
City, and subject to the order of said Commissioners, and such proceeds shall be de- 
voted to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land for said Ceme- 
tery, and to the improvement and embellishment thereof, as aforesaid, under the direc- 
tion of said board of Commissioners. And no other moneys shall be appropriated from 
the City Treasury by the City Council for such improvement and embellishment."

The undersigned, Joint Standing Committee on Accounts, in pursuance of 
the provisions of the eighth section of the Ordinance entitled " An Ordinance 
establishing a system of Accountability in the Expenditures of the City," requiring 
them to audit the Account of the City Treasurer at the close of each municipal 
year, and as much oftencr as they may deem expedient, hereby certify that we 
have examined and audited the within Account of Joseph W. Dudley, City 
Treasurer, and find the same correctly cast, and all payments and expenditures 
therein charged against the City, are sustained by the necessary vouchers. 

We find that there has been received into the Treasury, at sundry times within 
the year ending January 31, 1858, the sum of two hundred fifty-four thousand one 
hundred forty-two and 17-100 dollars, which, with the balance on hand January 31, 
1857, of twenty-one thousand three hundred sixty-nine and 74-100 dollars, makes a 
total receipt of the year of two hundred seventy-five thousand five hundred eleven and 
91-100 dollars; and that there has been paid out from the Treasury during the 
same period, the sum of two hundred fifty-one thousand seven hundred fifty-one and 
92-100 dollars, leaving in the Treasury January 31, 1858, a balance of twenty-three 
thousand seven hundred fifty-nine and 99-100 dollars.

The undersigned, Joint Standing Committee on Accounts, in pursuance of 
the provisions of the eighth section of the Ordinance entitled " An Ordinance 
estahlishing a system of accountability in the Expenditures of the City," requir- 
ing them to audit the account of the City Treasurer at the close of each municipal 
year, and as much oftener as they may deem expedient, hereby certify that we have 
examined and audited the within account of Joseph W. Dudley, City Treasu-

same correctly cast, and all payments and expenditures therein charged against 
the Commissioners, are sustained by the necessary vouchers. 

We find that there has been received into the Treasury on account of the Ceme- 
tery at sundry times within the year ending January 31, 185S, the sum of twenty- 
three thousand two hundred fifty -Jive and 28 100 dollars, which, with the balance on 
hand, January 31, 1857, of two thousand four hundred fifty-seven and 45-100 dollars, 
makes a total receipt of the year of twenty-five thousand seven hundred twelve and 
73-100 dollars; and there has been paid from the Treasury during the same period, 
on the order of the Commissioners, the sum of twenty-three thousand eight hundred 
eight and 19-100 dollars, leaving a balance in the Treasury, January 31, 1858, of

The Annual Reports of the Superintendent of the Almshouse, 
and Almshouse Physician, represent the condition of that estab- 



05 

Hslimont as satisfactory. The number of permanent inmates, — 
twenty-five being the average through the year, — does not keep 
pace with the increase of population. 

Owing to the financial embarrassments of the past season, which 
have thrown many men out of employment, an unusual number of 
persons have applied for lodgings and temporary relief. It is 
gratifying to know that the health of the inmates has generally 
been good. Only two deaths have occurred in the course of the 
season. 

The Superintendent and the Physician have been diligent and 
faithful in the performance of their respective duties. The 
inmates have been kept under proper regulations, while no reason- 
able indulgence or comfort has been Avithheld. 

During the past year, the Overseers of the Poor thought it 
advisable to appoint, during the inclement season, an Agent to 
receive applications for relief, investigate cases of pauperism, and 
under the direction of the respective Overseers, administer such 
relief as might be deemed expedient. This plan was adopted after 
mature consideration, with a view to economy, and also to introduce 
a more uniform and judicious mode of giving assistance, than has 
heretofore been adopted, by administering outside relief in the 
different wards. It is found on trial to work well. The Agent 
has discharged the duties of his office to the full satisfaction of the 
Board — and the results fully equal the expectations which were 
indulged when the plan was adopted.

Chairman of Overseers of the Poor.

REPORT 



SUPERINTENDENT OF THE ALMSHOUSE. 



Roxbury Almshouse, January 25, 1858. 

To the Board of Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxbury : 

Gentlemen, — In conformity to custom, the undersigned would 
respectfully submit to you the annual report of the Almshouse, 
accompanied with the few following statements : — 

The number of inmates in the house at the commence- 
ment of the year, February 1, 1857, was 
Roxbury people admitted during the year 



Discharged 
Died . 



Now remaining in the house 
Average number in the house 

Four of the number now in the house belong to West Roxbury, 
and their support is severally charged to that town. 

State Paupers have been admitted for temporary relief. 
Owing to the suspension of many kinds of business the past few 
months, there has been a large number out of employment, who 
have applied for medical advice to the Physician. Dr. Streeter 
has been punctual in his attendance, and with good results ; 
always cheerful, and ready, when called upon, to come to the 
relief of the sick and suffering. 

For a further statement of the medical department, please see 
Physician's report.

Whole number accommodated -with lodging and food the past 
year has been 228. 

Many have applied while intoxicated, and I did not feel it my 
duty to assist them in any way whatever. 

The health of the inmates the past year has generally been 
good ; only two deaths have occurred, one of these, an aged 
woman, who had been an invalid for many years, and died with 
dropsy ; the other was an aged man, brought to the house with 
palsy, and lived but two days after being admitted. 

Several persons brought to the house during the year too sick 
to be sent to the State Almshouse, have been cared for until 
they were well enough to be sent away with safety. 

Owing to the constant tillage for years, the soil has become 
exhausted, and does not produce well for the amount of manure 
and labor laid out upon it. In my opinion, it would be good 
economy for the City to seed it down to grass for a few years, 
and hire a few acres of land in the vicinity of the Almshouse, if 
such can be procured, for the raising of vegetables. 

Respectfully submitted by your obedient servant, 

Ezra Young, 
Sujyerintendent of Almshouse.

REPORT 



PHYSICIAN TO THE ALMSHOUSE 



To the Board of Overseers of the Poor : 

Gentlemen, — In submitting the Annual Report of the Medical 
Department of the Almshouse, it is gratifying to state that the 
general health of the inmates has been good, especially when we 
bear in mind that the larger number of them are advanced in 
life, and more or less infirm. 

Twenty-eight persons have received medical attendance at the 
house during the year. Of this number, six were temporary in- 
mates, being too sick at the time of admission to be carried to 
the State Almshouse ; but, as soon as their condition would justify 
it, have been removed to the Almshouse at Bridgewater, or dis- 
charged. Three persons have received medical attendance, more 
or less protracted, outside the Almshouse, until they were able to 
be removed. But a small proportion of the sickness has been of 
an acute character. In the early part of the year, there were six 
cases of scarlet fever, — five children, one adult, — and one case of 
typhoid fever. Two deaths have occurred in the house during the 
year, one of apoplexy and one of dropsy, both aged persons. 
One of these persons was brought to the house in a helpless con- 
dition, from an attack of apoplexy, and died two or three days 
after admission. 

In closing this brief report, I cannot refrain from referring to 
the unwearied care and attention of the Superintendent and his 
wife, to the welfare of those committed to their charge, as deserv- 
ing the highest commendation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph H. Streeter, 

Physician to the Almshouse. 

Hoxbury, Jan. 31, 1858. 



11 E P 11 T 



CHIEF ENGINEER OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. 



Roxbtjry, February 1, 1858. 

To the Honorable Mayor, Aldermen and Common Council : 

In accordance with section six of Ordinance No. 34, regulating 
the Fire Department, I submit to you my Annual Report, from 
February 1, 1857 to February 1, 1858. 

The Department is full in point of numbers and the members 
are prompt and energetic in the discharge of their duties, and 
cheerfully comply with all the rules and regulations. The appa- 
ratus is in good order. 

I regret that a new house was not built for the better accommo- 
dation of Engine No. 1, and Hook and Ladder No. 1. The 
favorable offers made to the Committee on the Fire Department, 
the last year, will probably not be again renewed. The present 
building is old, leaky, and wanting in every convenience required 
for the proper storing and care of the apparatus now kept in it. 
The remarks in my report of last year fully apply to this building 
this year. I would recommend that a new building of brick be 
erected this year on the same site as the old one ; and agreeably 
to the plans submitted to the Committee last year. 

The house occupied by Hydrant Co. No. 1, near " Waitt's 
Mills," is also deserving of your early attention. The present 
locality is not the proper one. The house stands over a running 
stream of water, which keeps the hose very damp, and it is almost 
impossible to properly dry and oil the same in cold weather. The 
house has been painted the past year. 

Engine House No. 7 stands on land belonging to the Providence 
Railroad Company, and last season it was thought the City would 



70 

be required to remove the building ; when it is done, I would 
recommend that an addition be made to the house, for at present, 
it is not long enough for the apparatus. This house has been 
painted the past year. 

Six hundred feet of new hose have been purchased for the De- 
partment. Of the forty-one hundred feet now on hand, a portion 
is old, and not worth repairing. 

Three new Reservoirs have been built the past year of large 
capacity ; one at the corner of Parker and Alleghany Streets, one 
at the comer of Warren and Waverly Streets, and one on East 
Street, opposite Norfolk Avenue. I would recommend that in 
future when reservoirs are built, they should be made to contain 
at least 30,000 gallons of water. 

Eight Hydrants have been constructed the past season, viz., 
two from the Cochituate Pipes on Tremont Road, one at the corner 
of Tremont and Sudbury Streets, and one at the corner of Tremont 
and Ruggles Streets, six from the Jamaica Pond Pipes, viz., one 
in Ruggles Street, opposite the Catholic Church, one at the corner 
of Vernon and Belmont Streets, one at the corner of Vernon and 
Washington Streets, one at the corner of Davis and Webber 
Streets, one at the corner of Davis and East Streets, and one on 
East Street, opposite " Stubbs' shop." When the pipes of the 
Company are laid over a greater extent of territory, I would recom- 
mend the insertion of more hydrants. By the provisions of the 
act of incorporation of the Company, the City were allowed to 
insert ten, six of which have been inserted, the remaining four 
have been paid for. The head or source of supply from Jamaica 
Pond is not as great as I could wish, still they will be of great 
service to the Department. 

Our Department is smaller than any in this vicinity. Nearly 
every town around us possesses a larger Department than Rox- 
bury ; as wooden buildings increase in our city, (and more than 
two hundred have been erected the past year) the danger of fire is 
increased, and I would recommend that an additional Engine be 
placed on East Street, at or near Eustis Street. 

In all the expenditures for the Fire Department, a due regard 
has been had to economy, and nothing has been purchased but 
what was absolutely required for the use of the Department. The 
amount expended for Reservoirs and Hydrants has been large, but 
will prove of more benefit to the City than a like sum expended 
in any other way. 

During the term of office yet remaining to me, it shall be my 
earnest endeavor to make the Department worthy the confidence 
of the City. 

The accompanying documents show the number of fire alarms 



71 

during the year, with the loss and insurance as far as could be 
ascertained ; names of members of Board of Engineers ; members 
of the Department, age and place of residence, pay of members, 
condition of houses and apparatus, list of hydrants and reservoirs 
and the rules and regulations. 

The Department have been called out the past year 59 times, 
viz : — 

From actual fires within the City . . . 27 times. 

" false alarms 22 " 

" fires out of the City 10 " 

Loss by fire, $28,025 00. Insurance, $17,100 00. 

Last year the Department was called out 78 times, viz : — 
From actual fires within the City .... 33 times. 
" false alarms " " ' . . . . 26 " 
" alarms from out of " . . . 19 " 

Loss by fire $35,785 00. Insurance, $16,446 00. 
Respectfully submitted. 

SAMUEL F. TRAIN, 

Chief Engineer. 



In Board of Aldermen, February 1, 1858. 

Referred to the Committee on Accounts, with instructions to cause such 
parts to be printed in the Annual Report of Receipts and Expenditures of 
the City as they deem expedient. 

Read and sent down for concurrence.

The following disposition was made of the persons arrested 



918 



79 

Four hundred and fifty-five persons liavo been provided with 
lodgings during the year. 

TIig Police Department the past year, and as now organized, 
consists of myself, eight Assistant Marshals, and eight Night 
Watchmen. Two of the Assistant Marshals are on duty every 
night, and six are on duty during the day ; making an increase of 
four men more on duty at night than Ave had at the commence- 
ment of the year. 

In consequence of repeated burglaries committed in the night 
time, which caused much alarm to the inhabitants of this City and 
neighboring towns, in October last the Board of Aldermen in- 
creased the night watch to forty men, for a number of weeks, 
which force has been discontinued ; through the efforts of the 
police, five of the burglars have been arrested, convicted, and are 
now serving out their sentence in the State Prison. 

The Marshal and Assistants have acted as truant officers, and 
all communications from teachers of our public schools have been 
promptly attended to, and many children returned to school who 
would not have attended had they been permitted to carry out 
their intentions. 

The usual amount of service has been rendered by the police 
in abating nuisances, attending fires, public meetings, &c, all of 
which has been done by them without extra expense to the City, 
and which does not appear in the Reports of the doings of the 
Department. 

The same number of Special Police were on duty during the 
fruit season that were employed the preceding year, and with 
equally as good results. 

The regular police have been diligent in causing a proper ob- 
servance of the Sunday Law, and all persons known to keep open 
their shops or places of business in violation of said law, have been 
prosecuted for the same. 

In regard to arrests, you will readily perceive that intemper- 
ance, (either directly or indirectly) exceeds all other causes of 
violations of the statute or criminal law. There have been a 
number of prosecutions for violations of the liquor law, the most 
of which have been appealed from the Police Court to the Court of 
Common Pleas, for a trial by jury. In some instances the par- 
ties appealing have been convicted, while most of them have been 
discharged or their cases continued. 

Since the instruction from the Board of Aldermen relative to 
the enforcement of the Liquor Law, a number of persons, by their 
voluntary act, have notified me of their intention of abandoning 
the traffic of liquor selling ; others have been prosecuted and con- 
victed in the Police Court, from which they have appealed. 



80 

There are a large number of places in the City where we have 
reason to believe intoxicating liquors are kept for sale, but the 
patrons of those places are few who will come forward and testify 
to their purchasing, or being present at any sale, or in any way 
having knowledge of any violation of law relating to the same ; 
and many of those who are summoned before the Police Court to 
testify in liquor cases, before a trial can be had on an appeal, 
will be in parts unknown, or beyond the jurisdiction of the 
Court. 

The police have discharged their duties, generally, satisfactorily, 
and exhibited a willingness on their part to do all in their power 
to subserve and Dromote the interests of the City. Many of their 
duties have been onerous and unpleasant, but they have been 
performed willingly, and, it is hoped, to the satisfaction of the 
public. 

Respectfully submitted. 

A. S. PARKER, 

City Marshal. 

Roxbury, April 5, 1858. 



In Board of Aldermen, April 5, 1858. 

Referred to the Committee on Accounts, with instructions to cause the 
whole or such parts of the Report to be printed as they shall deem expe- 
dient. 

Sent down for concurrence. 

JOSEPH W. TUCKER, City Clerk. 

In Common Council, April 12, 1858. 
Concurred. 

FRANKLIN WILLIAMS, Clerk. 



REPORT 



COMMISSIONERS W FOREST HILLS CHETM 



In conformity to the fifth, section of "An Act relative to a 
Public Cemetery in the City of Roxbury," the Commissioners 
respectfully submit their 

TENTH ANNUAL REPORT. . 

1. Labor. The amount of labor performed on the grounds of 
the Cemetery the last year, does not vary essentially from that of 
the preceding. In the various departments of the work, thirty- 
eight men, upon an average, were employed during ten months of 
the year, and about nine the remaining two months. 

2. Lots Prepared. One hundred lots have been trenched, 
graded and sodded, the bounds defined by stone posts, and the 
borders adorned with trees and shrubs. 

3. Field of Ephron. A large amount of labor has been 
performed upon and about that portion of the Cemetery called the 
" Field of Ephron," carrying out the design and extending the 
operations initiated the previous year. The 200 graves previously 
trenched, have been sodded, and 236 additional graves have been 
trenched and prepared for sodding. In order permanently to 
designate the graves in this portion of the Cemetery, stones of 
suitable and uniform size, prepared for the purpose, with numbers 
distinctly engraved upon them, have been affixed to 312 graves. 
The old wall, on the northwesterly side of the " Field of Ephron," 
has been removed, and a fence corresponding with the other part 
of the Cemetery fence has been built. The avenue which was 
opened and in part made the previous year, has been continued 
in a somewhat circular course, so as to terminate at its entrance 
on Mulberry Avenue, near the Egyptian gateway. To accom- 
plish this work, it was necessary to cut through a large rock a 
distance of seventy-five feet, and the whole is now completed. 
The stone thus removed in grading the avenue, was found very 
convenient, but a few yards distant, in constructing the paths be- 
ll 



82 

tween the ranges of graves ; the item of greatest expense in the 
opening of the avenue becoming thus a matter of economy in the 
grading of the paths. 

4. Avenues and Paths. The work performed on avenues 
and paths the last year has been more than an average of former 
years. The loam has been removed from 2000 feet of the avenues 
and 955 feet of the paths, and the same replaced with stone and 
gravel. 

5. Monuments. The number of monuments erected the last 
year has, for obvious reasons, been somewhat less than for several 
years previous. And yet important additions have been made in 
private lots to these enduring records of respect for the departed. 
Besides many smaller slabs and scrolls, nineteen monuments have 
been erected. 

6. Fences. Fifty-five lots have been enclosed with iron 
fences. 

7. Interments. The number of interments the past year is 
less by fifty-three than in the previous year, amounting, in private 
lots and in the Field of Ephron, to 422. 

8. Lots Sold. The number of lots sold during the past year 
is ninety-two ; the average size of the lots 385 T 3 n 6 (j- feet. This 
number is small compared with the sales of several preceding 
years, and, without taking into account the size, might indicate a 
falling off of receipts ; but the size of the lots being greater than 
in any former year, makes the receipts compare favorably with 
the receipts of the last five years, while they exceed the average 
receipts of the previous nine years. The amount of land embraced 
in these ninety-two lots would make a little over 118 lots of the 
common size of 800 feet each. There have been sold also 163 
graves in the " Field of Ephron ;" a larger number than in any 
previous year. 

9. Lots Finished. There are now on hand thirty-eight lots 
finished and ready for sale ; besides fifty-five other lots which 
have been trenched, ready to be finished as soon as the season 
will permit. A large and beautifully situated lot on Cypress Hill, 
between Cypress and Poplar Avenues, has been purchased by the 
Cemetery Association of the Boston Fire Department, which has 
been trenched and graded, and will be put in order for their use 
early in the spring. 

10. An Unmarked Grave. While the men employed upon 
the avenue which encircles the summit of Consecration Hill, 
were removing loam near the top of the hill, about four feet from 
the surface of the ground, they came upon two human skeletons, 
or, more properly, upon the bones of two once human beings. 



83 

The two sets of bones were lying side by side, separated only by 
a few inches from each other. They seemed to have been packed 
in wood ashes, a large quantity being found with the bones. In 
the opinion of a physician, who was present soon after the exhuma- 
tion, the bones were those of a male and female ; and a quantity 
of long, black hair, in a matted state, found at the head of one set 
of these bones, indicated that it had once covered and adorned 
the head of a female. These bones of the unknown dead were 
suitably cared for by our Superintendent, who had them buried in 
a grave in the Field of Ephron ; and it is the intention of the 
Commissioners to procure a slab, with a suitable inscription, to 
mark the spot where they are deposited. To whom, or to what 
manner of persons these bones once belonged ; by what ties bound 
to life or to each other ; or by what disease they came to their 
death ; or when, or why buried thus solitarily upon this hill, are 
questions which probably no one now living can answer. It is 
matter of reasonable conjecture, however, that, as this hill was a 
part of the land which many years ago was owned by the town of 
Roxbury, and as it was formerly customary in this place to re- 
move persons visited with small-pox from their families and from 
the neighborhood of human habitations, it is possible that the top 
of this hill may have been the site of some rude hospital for the 
reception of those suffering under this disease. And here it may 
be these twain, after having passed the many or the few " weari- 
some days and nights appointed to them," under the ravages of 
this dire malady, sunk into a hasty grave near the place of their 
death ; little dreaming that around them should be gathered, in 
crowding ranks, the dead of other generations, to rise together 
with them at the call of Him who is the resurrection and the 

LIFE. 

11. Cemetery Debt. Since their last Annual Report, the 
Commissioners have reduced the debt incurred in the purchase of 
Cemetery land, by the payment of $5,000, which, added to the 
sum of $15,894.67, before paid, amounts to $20,894.67. This 
leaves a balance of $16,000 yet unpaid. 

12. The Receipts and Expenditures for the year have been 
as follows : —

13. While the Commissioners have occasion, as in former 
years, to record their indebtedness to the City Clerk and Trea- 
surer, and also to their Superintendent, Mr. Brims, it is matter 
of deep regret to them in relation to the latter, that the state of 
his health compels him to withdraw from the important trust 
which he has so successfully discharged. Mr. B. has been most 
pleasantly associated with the Commissioners from the first, in 
carrying out their plans and wishes in relation to Forest Hills.

All the labor there performed has passed under his eye, and the 
results now reached, which are matter of just congratulation and 
pride, are in no small degree traceable to his fidelity and taste. 
Mr. B. will carry with him the hearty wishes of the Commission- 
ers for his health and happiness. 

14. Decennial Review. It is now nearly ten years sinc« 
the first purchase of land for Forest Hills was consummated, ana 
its consecration, by interesting and appropriate services, as a 
burial place for our dead. During these ten years 3,064 inter 
ments have been made within these grounds. There have be 
erected by the owners of private lots 250 monuments, bes ; 
three times that number of slabs, scrolls and other monume 
devices. Fifty-two tombs have been constructed ; 424 lots 1 
been enclosed with iron fences, and fifty-three with hedges 

It would be superfluous to speak of the beautiful ada-p 
Forest Hills to its consecrated end, which the hand of taste . 
skill during these first ten years of its history has so fully devel- 
oped. And the importance of the enterprise, no voice could so 
impressively declare, as that of its three thousand freshly ten- 
anted graves. And as the stricken heart, drawn to this spot by 
the memory of its griefs, has lingered to drop its tribute of affec- 
tion over the sleeping dust of its garnered treasures, there has often 
vied with its bitterness the feeling of gratitude for the shaded re- 
cesses and the suggestive beauties of this Garden of Graves. 

Such is the record of the first decennial period in the history 
of Forest Hills. The second, which will make still further 
changes in this consecrated spot, will also greatly enlarge the 
circle of interest which shall rather around it. In the lanimase 
of the eloquent address at the consecration of the grounds, and 
with a more than " half consciousness" of its fearful import, we 
may repeat the rising thought, " whence shall come those, who 
shall fill these narrow chambers, and sleep beneath these marble 
records?" but it is well that we may not foresee the future. It 
is sufficient to be be assured that all that can be done to rob the 
grave of its repulsiveness, and secure a peaceful rest for that 
which is mortal of our households, is clone at Forest Hills. 

ALVAH KITTREDGE, 

Chairman of the Commissioners of Forest Hills Cemetery.

Ordered, That 500 copies of the Report of the Committee on the

JOSEPH W. TUCKER, City Clerk. 



Citj of %nhmjt» 



In Board of Aldermen, April 19, 1858. 

The Committee on the Fire Department on the part of this 
Board, in relation to the communication of His Honor 
the Mayor, addressed to the City Council, on the 15th 
of March last, submit tins additional 

REPORT: 

The Committee, while they believe that a majority of 
the members of the Department are good firemen, are sat- 
isfied that those evils referred to in the Communication, 
and others not mentioned, exist to a greater or less extent 
in all the Companies. The prominent evils are these : 

Disorderly members, frequently of intemperate habits, 
and sometimes of bad character ; 

Violation of rules and regulations ; 

The volunteer system ; 

The arrangement by which the pay of the Firemen is 
drawn by the Clerks of the Companies, and used as a com- 
mon fund, for purposes other than useful. 

Your Committee, in common with the other members 
of this Board, and of the citizens generally, entertain great 
respect for the useful members of the Department. Their 
arduous services are worthy of all praise, and are fully 
appreciated by the Committee. It is wrong that such men 
should be obliged to associate with men of an inferior 
stamp, and it is equally wrong that good men should be 



prevented from joining the Fire Companies, through fear 
of being associated with vicious, intemperate or disorderly 
members. Each fireman should have the privilege of using 
his pay in his family, or for his support, without being sur- 
rounded by associates who will ridicule him for so doing. 

Temperate habits and good character should be made 
prominent qualifications for membership. Men with these 
qualifications can be obtained, and it is the right of the 
citizens that none but such men should occupy a place in 
the Department. 

Your Committee believe that sufficient attention has not 
been given to these essentials. They also believe that an 
explicit avowal to the Board of Engineers, as to the wish 
and expectation of this Board on this subject, will cause 
greater care to be taken in the future, and by the exercise 
of that care, the character and standing of the Department 
will be elevated, and other beneficial results will surely 
follow. 

The Firemen are paid for their services, not a large 
compensation, it is true, but enough to distinguish our sys- 
tem from a volunteer system. And yet some of the worst 
evils of the latter exist ; and if we must have these, would 
it not be better to return to that system at once, and save 
the large amount annually expended for compensation of 
members. The Engine Companies consist of forty mem- 
bers, a force often subjected to very hard work, especially 
at large fires. The members are assisted by volunteers, 
and the services rendered are often valuable; but the sys- 
tem is very objectionable, for reasons suggested by the 
Mayor, and also for others. 

The character of the volunteers is determined pretty ac- 
curately by the character of the members. Dissolute young 
men, hanging about an engine house, " equally ready for a 
run with the engine, a drunken frolic, or a row," indicate 
with considerable certainty the general character of the 
Company. 



Your Committee arc of opinion that the Companies 
should be held responsible for those who visit their houses 
habitually, as they can decide who shall be admitted, and 
who not. 

The regulations of the Board of Engineers prohibiting 
the members from taking their engine out of town, should 
be fully explained to the Firemen, and then rigidly en- 
forced. Your Committee are aware that the temptation 
to cross the lines to neighboring towns, when a fire is in 
sight, is a hard one for firemen to resist; and the zeal that 
urges men to rush to save from destruction the property of 
the inhabitants of such towns, would be commendable, did 
it not involve the total neglect of the property of our own 
citizens, which the Firemen are paid to protect. The im- 
portance of this matter is not overstated. 

At the fire on the Bussey estate, on the 3d instant, in 
West Roxbury, all the Roxbury engines were present. 

In view of these existing evils, the important question 
is, What is the remedy ? 

The Committee believe it to be with the Aldermen. It 
is this : 

Disband those Companies in which these evils are most 
prominent, and organize new Companies, readmitting such 
of the old members as possess the requisite qualifications, 
and supplying the place of the others with men of the 
right stamp. No good Fireman can fairly object to this 
course, and the objections of others are of no consequence. 

The practice of singling out members now and then and 
discharging them from the Department for disorderly con- 
duct, when others just as bad remain, is objectionable. It 
necessarily produces irritation amongst the Firemen, and 
is regarded as partial. 

The Committee believe the true way, when the evils are 
great and numerous, is to abolish this practice, and dis- 



6 

charge by Companies, without censure of individuals ; to 
reinstate the valuable members, and supply the place of 
others by better men. 

Your Committee recommend that "Warren Engine Co. 
No. 1 be disbanded, and that, when it shall be deemed ad- 
visable to organize a new Company, that the Board of 
Engineers be instructed to select members possessing the 
qualifications herein before mentioned. The Committee 
also recommend that henceforth the Firemen draw their 
pay directly from the City Treasurer, who has expressed 
his willingness to perform the service of paying them sepa- 
rately. 

And, in conclusion, your Committee recommend the 
adoption of the accompanying order. 

W. S. LELAND, 
SAM'L PEARSON, 
U. T. BROWNELL.
