The Declaration of Independence is generally regarded 
as one of the most famous documents in the history of 
the world. On June 10, 1776, the Continental Congress 
appointed a committee, consisting of Thomas Jefferson, 
Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and 
Robert R. Livingston to draft a Declaration of Inde- 
pendence. 

Jefferson wrote out a rough draft of the Declaration, 
which was carefully revised by the committee and pre- 
sented to Congress for adoption. After some further slight 
revisions by that body, it was adopted on July 4, 1776, 
at Philadelphia. 

The parchment with the original signatures was de- 
posited with the Department of State when the govern- 
ment was organized in 1789. 

The original Declaration of Independence was trans- 
ferred from the Department of State by direction of 
the late President Warren G. Harding to the Library of 
Congress. The Declaration was moved from the Library 
of Congress in 1952 at the direction of Congress and 
transferred to the National Archives Building where it 
rests today. 



THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 



MADE BY THE ORIGINAL THIRTEEN STATES 
IN CONGRESS AT PHILADELPHIA 



UNANIMOUSLY ADOPTED JULY 4, 1776 



When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one 
people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with 
another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate 
and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God 
entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that 
they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created 
equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain un- 
alienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of 
happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted 
among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of 
these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and 
institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, 
and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most 
likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate 
that governments long established, should not be changed for light 
and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that 
mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than 
to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accus- 
tomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing 
invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under ab- 
solute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such 
government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such 
has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies, and such is now the 
necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of govern- 
ment. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 7 

repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the estab- 
lishment of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
facts be submitted to a candid world. 

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary 
for the public good. 

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and press- 
ing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent 
should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected 
to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large 
districts of people, unless those people should relinquish the right of 
representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them, and 
formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncom- 
fortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the 
sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with 
manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others 
to be elected, whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, 
have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the State re- 
maining, in the meantime, exposed to all the dangers of invasion from 
without, and convulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for 
that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refus- 
ing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither; and raising the 
conditions of new appropriations of lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his as- 
sent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of 
their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of 
officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 



8 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, without 
the consent of our legislatures. 

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior 
to the civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign 
to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent 
to their acts of pretended legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 

For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any mur- 
ders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these States: 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world: 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent: 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury: 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses: 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring 
province establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging 
its boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and fit instru- 
ment for introducing the same absolute rule into these colonies: 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and 
altering fundamentally the forms of our governments: 

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves in- 
vested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his pro- 
tection, and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and 
destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries 
to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun, 
with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy, scarcely paralleled in the 
most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized 
nation. 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 9 

He has constrained our fellow citizens, taken captive on the high 
seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of 
their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeav- 
ored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian 
savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished destruction 
of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in 
the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered 
only by repeated injury. A prince whose character is thus marked by 
every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free 
people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We 
have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their legislature 
to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded 
them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We 
have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have 
conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these 
usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and 
correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of 
consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which 
denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of man- 
kind, enemies in war, in peace friends. 

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, 
in General Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the 
world for the rectitude of our intentions, do in the name, and by au- 
thority of the good people of these Colonies, solemnly publish and 
declare, That these United Colonies, are, and of right ought to be, 
free and independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance 
to the British crown, and that all political connexion between them 
and the State of Great Britain, is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; 
and that as free and independent States, they have full power to levy 
war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do 
all other acts and things which independent States, may of right do. 
And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the 
protection of Divine Providence we mutually pledge to each other our 
lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour. 

JOHN HANCOCK.

12 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 



The United States Constitution is the oldest 
federal constitution in existence. It was so well 
framed that it has served as the basis for this 
government for a century and a half. Only once 
has it been seriously endangered, this being dur- 
ing the Civil War. Many of its principles have 
been adopted by other countries. 

The Constitution was the outgrowth of a con- 
vention of delegates from the different states that 
met in Philadelphia in May, 1787, Rhode Island 
not being represented. George Washington pre- 
sided over the convention, which lasted from 
May to September. 

The Constitution was then submitted to the 
then existing states for ratification, with a pro- 
vision that it should become effective when rati- 
fied by nine states. New Hampshire was the ninth 
state to ratify, June 21, 1788, and the Constitu- 
tion went into effect in 1789. 

The states ratified the Constitution in the 
following order: Delaware, Dec. 7; Pennsylvania, 
Dec. 12, and New Jersey, Dec. 18, 1787; Georgia, 
Jan. 2; Connecticut, Jan. 9; Massachusetts, Feb. 
6; Maryland, Apr. 28; South Carolina, May 23; 
New Hampshire, June 21; Virginia, June 26, and 
New York, July 26, 1788; North Carolina, Nov. 
21, 1789, and Rhode Island, May 29, 1790.

The numbering of the sections of Part II first appeared in the Revised Statutes 
of 1842. In 1889, when the tenth section of Part II was stricken out, all subsequent 
sections were renumbered, with the result of making much confusion in citations. 
In this copy the original numbers have been restored.

BILL OF RIGHTS 

Article 1st. [Equality of Men; Origin and Object of Government.] 

All men are born equally free and independent: Therefore, all govern- 
ment, of right, originates from the people, is founded in consent, and 
instituted for the general good. 

Annotation — 53 NH 9, 65 NH 113, 86 NH 597, 89 NH 428, 96 NH 423, 102 
NH 215, 105 NH 366. 

[Art.] 2d. [Natural Rights.] All men have certain natural, essential, 
and inherent rights — among which are, the enjoying and defending 
life and liberty; acquiring, possessing, and protecting, property; and, 
in a word, of seeking and obtaining happiness. 

Note. — The abbreviation "Art" was first inserted in this and following articles 
of the Bill of Rights in General Statutes, 1867.

94 NH 148, 102 NH 236. 

[Art.] 3d. [Society, its Organization and Purposes.] When men enter 
into a state of society, they surrender up some of their natural rights 
to that society, in order to ensure the protection of others; and, without 
such an equivalent, the surrender is void. 

Annotation — 53 NH 9, 60 NH 219, 71 NH 552, 89 NH 54, 97 NH 91, 105 NH

[Art.] 4th. [Rights of Conscience Unalienable.] Among the natural 
rights, some are, in their very nature unalienable, because no equiva- 
lent can be given or received for them. Of this kind are the Rights of 
Conscience. 

Annotation — 53 NH 9, 59 NH 219, 89 NH 54, 100 NH 436. 

[Art.] 5th. [Religious Freedom Recognized.] Every individual has a 
natural and unalienable right to worship God according to the dictates 
of his own conscience, and reason; and no subject shall be hurt, mo- 
lested, or restrained, in his person, liberty, or estate, for worshipping 
God in the manner and season most agreeable to the dictates of his 
own conscience; or for his religious profession, sentiments, or persua- 
sion; provided he doth not disturb the public peace or disturb others 
in their religious worship.

CONSTITUTION OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 77 

[Art.] 6th. [Morality and Piety.] As morality and piety, rightly 
grounded on high principles, will give the best and greatest security 
to government, and will lay, in the hearts of men, the strongest obliga- 
tions to due subjection; and as the knowledge of these is most likely 
to be propagated through a society, therefore, the several parishes, 
bodies corporate, or religious societies shall at all times have the right 
of electing their own teachers, and of contracting with them for their 
support or maintenance, or both. But no person shall ever be compelled 
to pay towards the support of the schools of any sect or denomination. 
And every person, denomination or sect shall be equally under the 
protection of the law; and no subordination of any one sect, denomina- 
tion or persuasion to another shall ever be established. 

Note. — This article amended 1968.

420, 75 NH 560, 76 NH 393, 88 NH 394, 93 NH 301, 99 NH 519. 

[Art.] 7th. [State Sovereignty.] The people of this state have the sole 
and exclusive right of governing themselves as a free, sovereign, and 
independent state; and do, and forever hereafter shall, exercise and 
enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and right, pertaining thereto, which is 
not, or may not hereafter be, by them expressly delegated to the United 
States of America in congress assembled. 

Annotation — 66 NH 362, 90 NH 472, 105 NH 286. 

[Art.] 8th. [Accountability of Magistrates and Officers.] All power 
residing originally in, and being derived from, the people, all the 
magistrates and officers of government are their substitutes and agents, 
and at all times accountable to them. 

Annotation — 66 NH 362, 67 NH 1, 90 NH 472. 

[Art.] 9th. [No Hereditary Office or Place.] No office or place, what- 
soever, in government, shall be hereditary — the abilities and integrity 
requisite in all, not being transmissible to posterity or relations. 

[Art.] 10th. [Right of Revolution.] Government being instituted for the 
common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, 
and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, 
or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are per- 
verted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means 
of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform 
the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance 



78 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and de- 
structive of the good and happiness of mankind.

NH 314, 90 NH 472, 99 NH 33, 101 NH 527. 

[Art.] 11th. [Elections and Elective Franchise.] All elections ought to 
be free, and every inhabitant of the state, having the proper qualifica- 
tions, has equal right to elect, and be elected, into 'office; but no person 
shall have the right to vote or be eligible to office under the constitu- 
tion of this state who shall not be able to read the constitution in the 
English language and to write; provided, however, that this provision 
shall not apply to any person prevented solely by a physical disability 
from complying with its requisitions, nor to any person who now has 
the right to vote; and provided further that no person shall have the 
right to vote, or be eligible to office under the constitution of this state 
who shall have been convicted of treason, bribery, or any wilful viola- 
tion of the election laws of this state, or of the United States; but the 
supreme court may, on notice to the attorney-general restore the privi- 
leges of an elector to any person who may have forfeited them by con- 
viction of such offenses. The general court shall have power to provide 
by law for voting by qualified voters who at the time of biennial or 
state elections, or of the primary elections therefor, or of city elections 
are absent from the city or town of which they are inhabitants, or who 
by reason of physical disability are unable to vote in person, in the 
choice of any officer or officers to be elected or upon any question sub- 
mitted at such election. The right to vote shall not be denied to any 
person because of the non-payment of any tax. 

Note. — First proviso inserted, 1903; second proviso inserted 1912. The last 
sentence was added in 1942 and amended in 1956, and 1968.

[Art.] 12th. [Protection and Taxation Reciprocal.] Every member of 
the community has a right to be protected by it, in the enjoyment of 
his life, liberty, and property; he is therefore bound to contribute his 
share in the expense of such protection, and to yield his personal serv- 
ice when necessary. But no part of a man's property shall be taken 
from him, or applied to public uses, without his own consent, or that 
of the representative body of the people. Nor are the inhabitants of 
this state controllable by any other laws than those to which they, or 
their representative body, have given their consent.

furnish evidence against himself. And every subject shall have a right 
to produce all proofs that may be favorable to himself; to meet the

leges, put out of the protection of the law, exiled or deprived of his 
life, liberty, or estate, but by the judgment of his peers, or the law of

tions, the trial of facts, in the vicinity where they happened, is so essen- 
tial to the security of the life, liberty, and estate, of the citizen, that 
no crime or offense ought to be tried in any other county than that in 
which it is committed; — except in cases of general insurrection in any 
particular county, when it shall appear to the judges of the superior 
court, that an impartial trial cannot be had in the county where the 
offense may be committed, and upon their report, the legislature shall 
think proper to direct the trial in the nearest county in which an im- 
partial trial can be obtained.

[Art.] 18th. [Penalties to be Proportioned to Offenses; True Design 
of Punishment.] All penalties ought to be proportioned to the nature 
of the offense. No wise legislature will affix the same punishment to 
the crimes of theft, forgery, and the like, which they do to those of 
murder and treason. Where the same undistinguishing severity is ex- 
erted against all offenses, the people are led to forget the real distinc- 
tion in the crimes themselves, and to commit the most flagrant with 
as little compunction as they do the lightest offenses. For the same 
reason a multitude of sanguinary laws is both impolitic and unjust. 
The true design of all punishments being to reform, not to exterminate 
mankind. 

Note. — The words "those of" following the word "do" in the third sentence, 
stricken out, 1793. 

The word "offenses" in the third sentence was substituted for "dye," 1793.

right to be secure from all unreasonable searches and seizures of his

person, his houses, his papers, and all his possessions. Therefore, all 
warrants to search suspected places, or arrest a person for examination 
or trial in prosecutions for criminal matters, are contrary to this right, 
if the cause or foundation of them be not previously supported by oath 
or affirmation; and if the order, in a warrant to a civil officer, to make 
search in suspected places, or to arrest one or more suspected persons 
or to seize their property, be not accompanied with a special designa- 
tion of the persons or objects of search, arrest, or seizure; and no war- 
rant ought to be issued; but in cases, and with the formalities, pre-

[Art.] 35th. [The Judiciary; Tenure of Office, etc.] It is essential to 
the preservation of the rights of every individual, his life, liberty, 
property, and character, that there be an impartial interpretation of 
the laws, and administration of justice. It is the right of every citizen 
to be tried by judges as impartial as the lot of humanity will admit. 
It is therefore not only the best policy, but for the security of the rights 
of the people, that the judges of the supreme judicial court should 
hold their offices so long as they behave well; subject, however, to such 
limitations, on account of age, as may be provided by the constitution 
of the state; and that they should have honorable salaries, ascertained 
and established by standing laws.

fundamental principles of the constitution, and a constant adherence 
to justice, moderation, temperance, industry, frugality, and all the so- 
cial virtues, are indispensably necessary to preserve the blessings of 
liberty and good government; the people ought, therefore, to have a 
particular regard to all those principles in the choice of their officers 
and representatives, and they have a right to require of their law- 
givers and magistrates, an exact and constant observance of them, in 
the formation and execution of the laws necessary for the good admin-

viz. — 

I, A. B. do solemnly swear, that I will bear faith and true allegiance

of October 31, 1793, and in the Revised Statutes of 1842. In the Revised Laws of 
1842 it is spelled "counselor." Warrant for the present spelling is found in the

A BRIEF HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 



Early historians record that in 1623, under the authority of an Eng- 
lish land-grant, Captain John Mason, in conjunction with several others, 
sent David Thomson, a Scotchman, and Edward and Thomas Hilton, 
fish-merchants of London, with a number of other people in two 
divisions to establish a fishing colony in what is now New Hampshire, 
at the mouth of the Piscataqua River. 

One of these divisions, under Thomson, settled near the river's 
mouth at a place they called Little Harbor or "Pannaway," now the 
town of Rye, where they erected salt-drying fish racks and a "factory" 
or stone house. The other division under the Hilton brothers set up 
their fishing stages on a neck of land eight miles above, which they 
called Northam, afterwards named Dover. 

Nine years before that Captain John Smith of England and later 
of Virginia, sailing along the New England coast and inspired by the 
charm of our summer shores and the solitude of our countrysides, wrote 
back to his countrymen that: 

"Here should be no landlords to rack us with high rents, 
or extorted fines to consume us. Here every man may be a 
master of his own labor and land in a short time. The sea 
there is the strangest pond I ever saw. What sport doth yield 
a more pleasant content and less hurt or charge than angling 
with a hook, and crossing the sweet air from isle to isle over 
the silent streams of a calm sea?" 

Thus the settlement of New Hampshire did not happen because 
those who came here were persecuted out of England. The occasion, 
which is one of the great events in the annals of the English people, 
was one planned with much care and earnestness by the English crown 
and the English parliament. Here James the first began a colonization 
project which not only provided ships and provisions, but free land 
bestowed with but one important condition, that it remain always 
subject to English sovereignty. 

So it remained until the "War of the Revolution." Smith first named 
it "North Viriginia" but King James later revised this into "New 
England." To the map was added the name Portsmouth, taken from 
the English town where Captain John Mason was commander of the 
fort, and the name New Hampshire is that of his own English county 
of Hampshire. 

Captain Mason died in 1635, just before his proposed trip to the 
new country which he never saw. He had invested more than twenty- 
two thousand pounds in clearing the land, building houses, and pre- 
paring for its defense, — a considerable fortune for those days. By 

116 



HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 117 

then Dover and Portsmouth had expanded into Hampton and Exeter, 
and its income from fishing was increased by that from trade in furs 
and timber. 

Taking the idea from the English government, a community of 
"towns" was erected, and this became a "royal province" in 1679 with 
John Cutt as president, with a population intended to be as nearly 
like England as it could be. The "royal province" continued until 
1698 when it came under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts with Joseph 
Dudley as Governor. Thus it continued until 1741. 

During that time England's throne had been ruled by William and 
Mary, Queen Anne, and George I, and New Hampshire was adminis- 
tered by no less than eight lieutenant governors. There had been much 
unrest in England and as a result, to New Hampshire's advantage, the 
Scotch settlers of Londonderry in Ireland had in 1719 sent many of 
their people here to form a "Scotch" colony in the new place they 
would call our own Londonderry. 

Under King George II New Hampshire returned to its provincial 
status with a governor of its own, Benning Wentworth, who was its 
chief magistrate from 1741 to 1766. 

During the first two decades of Governor Wentworth's term New 
Hampshire had been beset with Indian troubles. With little aid from 
England, then at war with its old-time enemy, France, the colonists 
undertook the sieges of Louisbourg, and helped to reduce Crown 
Point, and in the conquest of Canada. By the time of the signing 
of the Peace of Paris in 1762, and the end of the Indian fighting under 
the Rogers Rangers, the entire north country of New Hampshire was 
ready to be explored, surveyed, and populated. 

Governor Wentworth who, as if in anticipation of this opportunity, 
seems to have been well prepared for it, had arranged the purchase 
for the sum of fifteen hundred pounds of the unauthenticated claims 
of Robert Mason, heir of Captain John Mason. This was done through 
a group of twelve influential citizens who called themselves the 
"Masonian Proprietors." Having done this, the governor kept the land 
"within the province." 

Governor Wentworth, with all or most of the Masonian Proprietors 
as his councilors, then proceeded to grant towns to prospective settlers 
as equally as possible. In addition to the thirty-eight towns already 
granted, more than a hundred others followed after the year 1761. 
These towns contained lots available to more than thirty thousand 
families, many from the older towns in southern New Hampshire and 
Massachusetts, but many from other neighboring states. Some of these 
towns were located in Vermont, to be released later by a court order, 
which made the western shore of the Connecticut River the state 
boundary line. 

While the new towns were occasionally given the names of the 
leading grantees, not a few of them bore the historic names of English 



118 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

royalty, frequently those of friends and relatives of Governor Went- 
worth and his own royal family, the Rockinghams, in England. Many 
of the beneficiaries were soldiers who had fought in the Indian wars, 
while a few were of Dutch origin, such as might settle from New York 
in New Hampshire. 

The terms of the grants were simple. The Proprietors could convey 
only the soil, while the political rights and powers of government 
came from the province. Provision was made that no land should be 
subject to taxation or assessment until improved by those holding the 
titles. Rights were reserved for land for roads, churches and schools, 
to be built within a definite period of time, for the use of ministers 
and in many cases for mill-rights. Fees were nominal, often only a 
shilling or an ear of corn a year. All tall pines should be saved for 
the King's navy. 

Benning Wentworth died in 1770. He was succeeded by his nephew 
who later became Sir John Wentworth, the last of the royal gover- 
nors. He is perhaps best known because of his purchase of a thirty- 
six mile tract of land on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee where he 
established an estate known as Kingswood. It afterward became Wolfe- 
borough. 

Governor Sir John Wentworth's beneficial acts to the state included 
the building of roads, including one from Portsmouth to Kingswood; 
publishing the first accurate state map; organizing the State militia, 
a member of which was Major Benjamin Thompson of Concord who 
afterward became known as Count Rumford; his help in founding 
Dartmouth College; and the building of Wentworth House, now owned 
by the State. Loyal to the English crown, he embarked for Nova Scotia 
at the beginning of the Revolution, there to become its Lieutenant- 
governor until his death in 1820. 

A pre-Revolution event occurring in New Hampshire was the re- 
moval in 1774, by a small party of patriots at New Castle, of the pow- 
der and guns at Fort William and Mary. Other Revolutionary events 
included New Hampshire's participation in the Battle of Bunker Hill 
at which nearly all the troops doing the actual fighting were said to 
have been from this State; the signing of the Declaration of Indepen- 
dence by New Hampshire's Josiah Bartlett, Matthew Thornton, and 
William Whipple; General John Stark's victory at the Battle of Ben- 
nington; and the success of Captain John Paul Jones at sea. 

Just as it was the first to declare its independence and adopt its own 
constitution, New Hampshire was the ninth and deciding state in 
accepting the National Constitution as that of a republic, never to be 
known under any other form of government. New Hampshire's John 
Langdon was the first acting vice-president of the United States, and 
was President of the Senate when Washington was elected first presi- 
dent. 

Many events have helped to individualize New Hampshire's unique 



HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 119 

history as the decades have followed each other down to the present 
time. Both Washington and Lafayette passed within our borders. 
Meshech Weare was elected the first state "president." Morey's Connec- 
ticut River steam-boat preceded Fulton's by seventeen years. An 
American President, Franklin Pierce, and a Vice-president, Henry 
Wilson, were elected, both from New Hampshire. Daniel Webster won 
his famous Dartmouth College case before the Supreme Court. The 
first American public library was established at Peterborough. The 
world-recognized "Concord Coach" was made here, as was America's 
first cog-railroad to Mount Washington dating 1869. 

Statesmen, educators, inventors, preachers, scientists, explorers, au- 
thors, industrialists, engineers, lawyers, diplomats, are all arrayed in 
the long line of notables New Hampshire claims as coming from her 
soil. 

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION 

New Hampshire is situated the most northern of the thirteen origi- 
nal states and lies between latitude 42-40 and 45-18 north and longi- 
tude 70-37 and 72-37 west. It is about 180 miles long and 50 miles 
wide, although the extreme width is 93 miles. 

It is bounded on the north by Quebec province in Canada, on the 
east by Maine and the Atlantic ocean, on the south by Massachusetts, 
and on the west by Vermont. The Connecticut River is the western 
boundary. 

"MOTHER OF RIVERS" 

Geographies sometimes speak of the state as the "Mother of Rivers." 
Five of the great streams of New England originate in its granite hills. 
The Connecticut River rises in the northern part, and for nearly 
one hundred miles of its winding course hems the shores of the state 
with a "broad seam of silver." The Pemigewasset River starts in the 
Profile Lake in the Franconia mountains and joins the Winnipesaukee 
at Franklin to form the Merrimack, which at one time turned more 
spindles than any other river in the world. The Cocheco and Salmon 
Falls rivers join at Dover to form the Piscataqua. In addition, two of 
the principal rivers of Maine, the Androscoggin and the Saco, have 
their beginnings in northern New Hampshire. 

New Hampshire has 1300 lakes or ponds and 40,000 miles of rivers 
and streams which provide year round fishing and recreation in scenic 
surroundings, as well as power for the State's many industries. 

"THE GRANITE STATE" 

New Hampshire is commonly known as the Granite State, and of 
late years by some writers is called the Queen State — "Queen bv 



120 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

right of her natural beauty; queen by her native hardy spirit; queen 
by her diversified industry; queen by reason of her motherhood of 
great men. She is enthroned on hills of granite, diademed with spark- 
ling waters and sceptered with industry." 

The state entertains annually over a million summer visitors who 
resort in the mountain, lake and seashore scenery, — in fact it has 
been estimated that a million automobiles cross our borders annually! 
The soil is suitable for fruits, flowers and vegetables. The forests of 
pine, spruce and hard wood add beauty to the landscape and wealth 
to the land. 

The White Mountains are the natural feature which has the widest 
fame. New Hampshire bodies of water cover one hundred and fifteen 
thousand acres and vary from small ponds to Lake Winnipesaukee, 
which is twenty-two miles long and eight miles wide. 

New Hampshire's publicly-owned aerial tramway, the first erected 
to a mountain top in North America, is located in Franconia Notch 
near The Old Man of the Mountain. Its cars have carried 2,000,000 
passengers in their eight-minute ascent of the 2022 feet to the top. 

No state grows apples of finer flavor than come from the hillsides 
of New Hampshire. Horticultural shows have no better exhibits than 
are presented from towns in the southern part of this state, where 
the orchards have been sprayed and treated by the latest scientific 
methods. Strawberries, blueberries, peaches and products of the gar- 
den are grown in great quantities and shipped hundreds of miles. 

New Hampshire is also famous for her products made from the sap 
of the maple tree. 

Dairying is a large business and in recent years the quality of the 
herds has increased tenfold. There are 5,779,840 acres of land in the 
state, 1,960,061 acres being in farm land, with the number of farms 
estimated at 16,554, according to the 1940 farm census. There were 
over two and one-half million acres of timber land, which contained 
over thirty billion feet of merchantable timber, but the disastrous 
hurricane of 1938 has sadly depleted the standing timber in New 
Hampshire's granite hills. 

It is estimated that every year more than four million dollars is 
permanently invested in the purchase of land and the construction of 
buildings in the rural districts. Nearly every town has some summer 
visitors. Winnipesaukee shores are lined with cottages and hotels; 
Sunapee has a summer population of over five thousand, who enjoy 
its beauties. 

The state has a seaboard of about eighteen miles. Hampton and 
Rye beaches have been famous summer resorts since the days Whit- 
tier pitched his "tent on the beach." The salt waves of the Atlantic 
lap the sometimes sandy, sometimes rocky coast into one continuous 
pleasure ground, where surf bathing and scenic beauty enchant the 



HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 121 

visitor. In the early fall of 1915 a disastrous fire at Hampton Beach 
destroyed many of the hotels and places of business there, but the re- 
sort has since been rebuilt from the ruins until it is larger and more 
attractive than ever. The recreational area at Hampton Beach has 
greatly improved the appearance of that part of the coast. The state 
maintains a large public bath house and a parking area there. The 
erection of a sea wall in 1934 not only improved the property along 
the coast but was a necessary measure against coast erosion. 

Among New Hampshire's all-year, all-season recreation attractions, 
none are more popular than its winter sports. Mount Washington is 
the highest mountain east of the Rockies and north of the Mason- 
Dixon Line. Its privately-owned cog railway was the first mountain 
climbing railway in the world. 

New Hampshire has some of the finest ski terrain in the east where 
the sport may be enjoyed well into July and August. Its many lifts 
include the widely known Cranmore skimobile, operated all year, and 
Tuckerman, Cannon, Sunapee and Gilford slopes. 

Portsmouth, the only sea city, has an historic past and a prosperous 
present with its large navy yard. New Castle is a place of romance 
and aesthetic beauty and adventure. A large part of the Isles of 
Shoals in Portsmouth harbor belongs to New Hampshire, with their 
cottages and hotels. Lobster fishermen find the Isles of Shoals and 
the New Hampshire coast favorable areas for taking this famous sea 
food. The state highways are as fine as any state can boast of and 
are kept in excellent driving condition the year round. New Hamp- 
shire is open to visitors, from the coast to the mountains, twelve 
months in the year. 



FISH AND GAME 

In 1865 New Hampshire joined the vanguard of American science 
by establishing a fish and game department, the first one of its kind 
in New England. Since that date, some eighty odd years ago, the efforts 
of this department have been devoted to the propagation and conserva- 
tion of fish and game. 

In modern times the cultivation of fish and the protection of wild 
life have demanded the application of scientific methods quite as 
much as any other element of our life. It is a known fact that while 
European countries have found vast resources in their shore fisheries, 
the United States is by no means able to rely on her coast fisheries, 
and has thus been obliged to develop her inland waters to meet the 
needs that otherwise could have been met only by importation from 
other countries. Moreover, while Europe's supply is bound to lessen 
in time to come, our supply will continue to increase. 

Today, New Hampshire's Fish and Game Department employs a 
balanced team of trained wildlife men, fish culturists, and law en- 



122 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

forceraent officers to maintain and increase the available supplies of 
her native species under the pressure of vastly increased demand. To 
do so means that every one of her waters and every bit of cover must 
be contributing its full share to the state's crop. Research personnel are 
constantly exploring new avenues to increase natural productivity, 
while evaluating the results of current practices. 

Since World War II, a program of modernization and expansion of 
fish rearing facilities has more than doubled the annual output avail- 
able for stocking. Beautiful new rearing stations which rank with 
any in the country for modern design and efficient operation have 
been built at Merrymeeting Lake in New Durham, at Summer Brook 
in Ossipee, and at Merrimack, between Manchester and Nashua. Five 
other stations at Colebrook, Twin Mountain, Warren, New Hampton, 
and Richmond have been completely reconditioned. 

Fish and game is now recognized as a major factor in the recreation 
business which is one of New Hampshire's foremost sources of revenue. 
We can be justly proud of the effective teamwork between depart- 
ment personnel and the sportsmen of the state who are looking for- 
ward with the eye of true conservationists to establishing the fish and 
wildlife species of our state on a secure footing for future years. Deer, 
grouse, black bear, snowshoe hares, landlocked salmon, togue, black 
bass, and several species of brook trout are only a few of the wild 
residents which are to be found in such plenty as to make sportsmen 
choose New Hampshire first. 



"COME TO NEW HAMPSHIRE" 

New Hampshire believes in progress and development in every 
direction. It is the third most industrialized state in the Union and 
prizes itself on the quality and diversification of its products. New 
Hampshire is the home of the famous breed of poultry known as the 
"New Hampshires." She invites the whole world to visit her moun- 
tains, the "playground of America." Those seeking opportunity for 
profitable farming will do well to write for further information to the 
Commissioner of Agriculture, Concord, N. H.; sportsmen are invited 
to send for literature and advice to the Fish and Game Director, Con- 
cord, N. H.; those looking for business openings, either in manufactur- 
ing enterprises or in the retail field, should correspond with the New 
Hampshire Dept. of Resources and Economic Development, Concord, 
N. H.

HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 123 



THE STATE HOUSE 

The first discussions regarding the erection of a suitable state capitol 
building in New Hampshire took place in the year 1814. It was in- 
deed a memorable year. The War of 1812 had come to a close with 
the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, although the news had not reached 
America until after our troops under General Jackson had continued 
fighting into 1815 and won the famous battle of New Orleans. 

Other matters attracted state attention. One was the election of a 
"Republican" governor, William Plumer, who defeated the "Federal- 
ists." Another was the Dartmouth College case in which the Gover- 
nor favored state domination of the College. The legislature con- 
sidered the proposed new capitol building, but first had to determine 
in what locality it would be. 

The contest was between Concord, Hopkinton, and Salisbury, the 
last named town having offered seven thousand dollars for the honor. 
In the end Concord won, and by 1816 final action had been taken to 
build there. 

Considerable expense was saved the town of Concord by the de- 
cision to build the Capitol of granite from what are now the Swen- 
son quarries at the north end of the town, and to have the cutting 
and shaping and facing of the stones done by the inmates of the prison. 

A feature of the new and imposing building thus provided was its 
huge gold-painted wooden eagle, which was raised to the top of the 
dome in 1818. Appropriate ceremonies presided over by Governor 
Plumer were marked by a series of toasts, one of which was, "The 
American Eagle. May the shadow of his wings protect every acre of 
our united continent and the lightning of his eye flash terror and 
defeat through the ranks of our enemies." 

The new building's actual cost was only approximately $82,000, but 
it provided adequate quarters for the legislature and committees, the 
Governor and Council, the Secretary of State, the Treasurer, and the 
library. Stuart J. Park, the builder, goes down in history as having 
done an admirable job, and he has a Concord street to the north of 
the building, Park Street, named in his honor. The first session of the 
legislature to be held in the new building was in 1819. 

There is no record of discussion of enlargements or expansion of 
Capitol facilities until 1857. At that time there was pointed out the 
need for more library space and rooms for new departments. Noth- 
ing was done, however, until the problem became acute in one of the 
Civil War years, 1863, through the offer of the city of Manchester of a 
sizeable sum to build a new capitol and locate it there. This amount 
was stated to be no less than half a million dollars. 

The legislature having voted to retain the Capitol in Concord, plans 
were at once made to undertake its enlargement and remodeling. This 



124 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

was begun in 1864 and completed by 1866. The cost was said to have 
been approximately $200,000. 

In 1881, plans having been proposed to gain new space for needs 
caused by growth in State operations, by the removal of the library 
to a building of its own, plans for such a building were made. These 
plans, as ultimately adopted, not only provided for a "State Library," 
but for the Supreme Court as well, and the building was finally com- 
pleted in 1895. The Library was later enlarged in 1903. 

Not until 1903 was the problem of increasing needs for more space 
in the conduct of the State's business to come under discussion. In 
this discussion the point was conclusively made that "the majority of 
State offices cannot be provided with accommodations and are located 
in other buildings . . . ." and that this was uneconomical and ought 
to be corrected. 

Acting under a resolution which instructed the Governor and Coun- 
cil to remedy this situation, Governor Bachelder employed a firm of 
Boston architects to prepare a plan for an extensive enlargement of 
the Capitol. 

The arguments included the danger from fire, the inadequacy of 
the House and Senate to seat the membership, and the lack of meet- 
ing rooms for the legislative committees. This called for what amounted 
to an entirely new state house at an expense of approximately a million 
dollars, and by 1909 a bill for such an amount was introduced. 

Again the city of Manchester entered the scene, offering the million 
if the state house might be removed and rebuilt there. The legislature 
voted again to retain the Capitol in Concord, and an act for the is- 
suance of bonds for the construction required was passed. 

Governor Quimby and his Council then employed architects under 
whose plans the entire building was remodeled precisely as it is to- 
day, making the entire building fire-proof in all its parts, providing 
electric elevators, modern lighting, vaults, and an up-to-date heating 
system. During the years following, the proposal of 1903 regarding 
the necessity of providing for the various departments under one head 
was again considered, and plans were drawn in 1937 for the present 
State House Annex. 

The corner-stone for this new undertaking was laid in 1938, and 
the cost at completion, including a considerable grant from the federal 
government, amounted to $327,000. Here are housed more than twenty 
of the State's departments in modern, well-equipped offices. The Annex 
is connected by an underground passageway with the Capitol itself. 

Since the building of the Annex, other improvements have been 
undertaken to keep the State government in step with modern prog- 
ress. Recently the entire outer surface of the Capitol Building has 



EARLY GOVERNMENT 



125 



been expertly sanded and washed, restoring the granite stones to their 
original clean, fresh appearance. 

Likewise the statues of John Stark, Daniel Webster, President Pierce, 
John P. Hale, and Commodore Perkins have been properly cleaned 
and made tarnishproof by a modern professional process. Also the 
gilded wooden eagle, the Capitol Building's long familiar emblem, 
having been found to be suffering from the effects of many decades 
of weathering, has been replaced by an element-proof metal replica 
which now adorns the dome where its gold will glisten in the sunshine 
of long years to come. These things are among the accomplishments 
of the administration of Governor Lane Dwinell.

1874 



As parts of Massachusetts Bay Colony (1641-3 to 1679) the towns 
of Hampton, Exeter, Dover, and Strawberry Bank were comprised 
within Norfolk county, which was one of the four shires, viz., Essex, 
Middlesex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, into which the Bay Colony was 
separated from "3d month, 10th day 1643." 

The Province of New Hampshire agitated the subject of county 
establishment for years previous to decisive action in 1769, one plan, 
which came to nought in 1755, being to make two counties, Ports- 
mouth and Cumberland, with the Merrimack as the dividing line. 

The act which passed April 29, 1769, contained the provision that 
it should not take effect until "his majesty's royal approbation there- 
of be known," and the further provision that "said counties of Straf- 
ford and Grafton shall be for the present annexed to and deemed 
and taken as parts and members of the County of Rockingham *** 
until the governor by and with the advice of the council shall de- 
clare them respectively sufficient for the exercise of their respective 
jurisdictions and no longer.' Governor John Wentworth, in a mes- 
sage to the house of representatives in March, 1771, said "it gives me 
great pleasure to inform you that his majesty has been graciously 
pleased to approve and confirm the act for dividing this Province into 
counties." The existence of Rockingham, Hillsborough, and Cheshire 
counties began on March 19, 1771, Strafford and Grafton having re- 
ceived authority to exercise and enjoy county privileges, as set forth 
in Governor John Wentworth's message to the house on May 28, 1772, 
their separation from Rockingham became effective on June 5, 1773, 
by the terms of the act of February 5, 1773, "fixing the times and places

for holding courts in *** Grafton county," four months being allowed 
for the building of "prisons, court houses," etc. 

FIRST DIVISION 

The division of 1769, by the "Act for dividing this Province into 
Counties and for the more easy administration of Justice," was as 
follows: "The bounds of the first County to begin at the mouth of 
Piscataqua River and to run up the same to the Easterly corner of 
Newmarket including the River, and from thence Northwesterly by

THE COUNTIES 

When New Hampshire was a part of the colony of Massachusetts 
Bay, from 1641 to 1679, the principal towns of New Hampshire were 
part of Norfolk county in Massachusetts. New Hampshire did not 
divide herself into counties, however, until 1769, six years before the 
Revolution. In that year the five counties of Rockingham, Strafford, 
Hillsborough, Cheshire and Grafton were established. 

Coos was the sixth county, established in 1803. Merrimack was 
established in 1823, Sullivan in 1827, and Belknap and Carroll in 1840. 
Since the original division into counties the legislature on twenty oc- 
casions has amended and changed the layout. The following is a list 
of counties in their customary order, giving the name of each, the date 
of its establishment and the place of the county seat.

THE SENATE 

The senate began under the constitution and first met in 1784. There were at first 
twelve senators who represented the five counties that then existed, five senator! 
from Rockingham county, two from Strafford, two from Hillsborough, two from 
Cheshire and one from Grafton. In 1793 senatorial districts were created to take 
the place of county representation and each district elected one senator. The elec- 
tions during the early years took place in March and the legislature met in June 
annually. 

The senatorial districting of 1793 was changed over in 1803 and several times 
subsequendy. In 1878 the senate was doubled in size. In 1915 the senators were 
elected by plurality instead of majority vote. The following is a complete list of the 
senators from the beginning, showing the name and residence of each member of 
each senate, arranged in the order of districts from 1793, when the districts were 
created, and previous to that year, in the order of counties.

DEPARTMENT OF STATE 

Articles 66, 67 and 68 of the second part of the constitution pro- 
vide for a department of state with a secretary of state who is elected 
biennially by the legislature and a deputy secretary of state appointed 
by the secretary. In the colonial period there was a secretary appointed 
by the chief executive, but no deputy. During the revolutionary period 
and under the constitution of 1784 the secretary was chosen by the 
legislature and given authority to have several deputies, but in 1793 
the constitution was changed to provide for a single deputy. 

The following is a list of the secretaries of state from the begin- 
ning, together with the term which each served and a list of the deputy 
secretaries.

NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 



THE UNITED STATES 



The United States is composed of fifty states, 
one district, one commonwealth, and five major 
non-contiguous territories and possessions. 

The republic originated in the rebellion of 
the British Colonies of North America, Canada 
excepted, in 1776, and in the Declaration of 
Independence, the thirteen colonies in revolt 
styled themselves "The United States of Amer- 
ica. 

The Canadian boundary line is 3,900 miles in 
length, the Mexican boundary line being 1,975 
miles in length. 

According to the 1940 Federal census, the 
first basic re-measurement of the land and water 
area of the continental United States since 1880 
showed a total area of 3,022,387 square miles, 
consisting of 2,977,128 square miles land area, 
and 45,259 square miles inland water area. The 
total area of Alaska, according to this census, is 
586,400 square miles and the total area of 
Hawaii is 6,419 square miles. 

The Capitol of the United States is at Wash- 
ington, D. C. The corner stone of the original 
building was laid on September 18, 1793 by 
President George Washington. The original 
building was finally completed in 1827, its cost, 
including the grading of grounds, alterations 
and repairs up to that year, having been 
$2,433,844.13.

FEDERAL CENSUS OF 1970 

The State. New Hampshire was one of the Thirteen Original States. 
Its population on April 1, 1970, according to the Twenty-first Census, 
was 737,681. The State has a land area of 9,017 square miles. In 1970 
there was an average of 81.8 inhabitants per square mile as compared 
with an average of 67.3 in 1960. 

The official population count of the State as of April 1, 1970, was 
737,681. This represents an increase of 130,760, or 21.5 percent, from 
the 606,921 inhabitants of the State in 1960. 

This report presents final 1970 census statistics on the number of 
inhabitants of the State and its counties, classified by urban and rural 
residence. In addition, figures are shown for each county subdivision, 
each incorporated place, and each unincorporated place of 1,000 or 
more. 

The figures presented here are being issued in advance of their 
publication in Final Report Series PC(1)-A. The final report for this 
state will be issued within the next few months. 

An outline of the 1970 census publication program can be obtained 
free of charge from the Bureau of the Census, Washington, D. C. 
20233 or any U. S. Department of Commerce Field Office. 

In 1790 New Hampshire had a population of 141,885 (Table 1). In 
1970, 180 years later, its population was over five times as large. In 
the twentieth century, the intercensal rates of growth ranged from a 
low of 2.9 per cent to a record high of 21.5 per cent. In 1900 the popu- 
lation of the State was 411,588, and in 1960 it was 606,921. 

Urban and rural residence. — According to the definition adopted 
for use in the 1970 census, the urban population comprises all persons 
living in urbanized areas and in places of 2,500 inhabitants or more 
outside urbanized areas. More specifically, the urban population con- 
sists of all persons living in (a) places of 2,500 inhabitants or more 
incorporated as cities, villages, boroughs (except in Alaska), and towns 
(except in the New England States, New York, and Wisconsin), but 
excluding those persons living in the rural portions of extended cities 
(see "Urbanized areas," below); (b) unincorporated places of 2,500 in- 
habitants or more; and (c) other territory, incorporated or unincor- 
porated, included in urbanized areas. The population not classified 
as urban constitutes the rural population. 

Urbanized areas. — An urbanized area generally contains at least 
one city of 50,000 inhabitants or more and includes that portion of 
the surrounding territory, whether incorporated or unincorporated, 
which meets specified criteria relating to population density. There 
are a few urbanized areas which are based on "twin central cities" 
that have a combined population of at least 50,000. Some urbanized 

284 



FEDERAL CENSUS 285 

areas contain one or more incorporated places designated as "extended 
cities." These places are so designated because they have one or more 
large portions (normally at the boundary of the city) with relatively 
low population density. These portions are classified as rural and the 
residents are not included in the population of the urbanized area. 

County subdivisions. — The Census Bureau presents statistics for 
subdivisions of counties, as follows: 

(a) By minor civil divisions in 28 States — Arkansas, Connecticut, 
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massa- 
chusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, 
Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, 
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Vir- 
ginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. 

(b) By census county divisions in 21 States — Alabama, Arizona, Cali- 
fornia, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Ken- 
tucky, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, 
South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wy- 
oming. 

(c) In Alaska, by boroughs and reservations for those census divisions 
(the county equivalent) which are so subdivided. 

Minor civil divisions (townships, districts, etc.) are the primary po- 
litical divisions into which counties are subdivided. In some States, 
incorporated places are minor civil divisions in their own right. In 
other States they are subordinate to the minor civil division in which 
they are located, or the pattern is mixed — some incorporated places 
are independent minor civil divisions and others are subordinate to the 
minor civil division. 

Census county divisions represent community areas which have been 
defined in recent decades by the Census Bureau with the cooperation 
of the Governors and State and local officials. These areas have physi- 
cal features (roads, streams, etc.) as boundaries or follow the limits of 
incorporated places. The census county divisions in these States have 
replaced a variety of minor civil divisions which were unsatisfactory 
for statistical purposes principally because their boundaries frequently 
changed, were imaginary lines, or were not well known by many of 
the inhabitants. 

Incorporated places. — Political units recognized as incorporated 
places in the reports of the census are those which are incorporated 
as cities, boroughs, towns, and villages, with the following exceptions: 
(a) boroughs in Alaska, and (b) towns in the New England States, 
New York, and Wisconsin. For extended cities (see "Urbanized areas" 
above), the data in table 2 refer to all of the population residing 
within the corporate limits of the city. For these cities, table 3 shows 
the urban and rural parts separately; comparable 1960 data are not 
available because this concept was not used prior to 1970. 



286 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

Unincorporated places. — As in the 1950 and 1960 censuses, the 
Bureau has delineated boundaries for closely settled population cen- 
ters without corporate limits. All such places of 1,000 inhabitants or 
more are shown in tables 2 and 3, and are identified with the letter 
"U." 

Boundary changes. — The boundaries of some of the areas shown 
in this report may have changed between 1960 and 1970. The 1960 
figures given here have generally not been adjusted for such changes. 
Specific information on the changes will be presented in the Series 
PC(1)-A final report for this State. 

Percents and symbols. — Percents which round to less than 0.1 are 
shown as zero. A dash " — " signifies zero. Three dots "..." mean not 
applicable. Minus sign preceding a figure denotes decrease. The symbol 
"NA" means not available, and "U" means that the place is unincor- 
porated. In table 3, an asterisk "*" denotes an incorporated place 
under 2,500 located in an urbanized area.

*According to the new urban definition, the urban population comprises persons 
residing in urban territory but not necessarily in an urban place, which is defined 
as an incorporated place of 2,500 or more, or an unincorporated place of 2,500 or 
more located outside an urbanized area. Under the old definition, incorporated 
places of 2,500 or more and places urban under special rule are classified as urban 
places.

1970 



420 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

REPUBLICAN ORGANIZATION 

REPUBLICAN STATE PLATFORM 

Adopted at The Republican State Convention 

Concord, New Hampshire 

October 3, 1970 

PREAMBLE 

We, the Republican Party of New Hampshire, in convention assem- 
bled on this third day of October in the year of our Lord nineteen 
hundred and seventy, do hereby present to all the people of New 
Hampshire the following statement of principles and pledges in the 
belief that it represents a progressive program which will serve the 
best interests of all the citizens of our State. 

Here in New Hampshire, we must all pledge to resolve those prob- 
lems which confront us. 

With courageous leadership, our strong Republican Party can pre- 
serve the natural beauty, the clean air and clear water of our glorious 
State. 

Care for all our citizens in need, with compassion and with dignity. 

Assist the property taxpayer through aid to our local governments. 

Combat the menace of drugs through education, effective rehabilita- 
tion and enforcement of the law. 

And lastly, promote orderly and positive growth of recreation, tour- 
ism and industry to insure a high quality of environment and economy 
that will make this State a truly better New Hampshire in the years 
ahead. 

Constitutional Amendments 

We urge all citizens of New Hampshire to vote yes on the following 
Constitutional Amendments in order to make New Hampshire gover- 
ment better meet its responsibility. 

1. 4-year term for Governor 

2. Annual Sessions of the General Court 

3. Legislative Compensation Committee to set salaries of members 
of the General Court 

4. Oath of Office (technical change to conform with federal consti- 
tutional requirements) 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 421 

Consumer Protection 

We endorse the consumer protection division in the Office of the 
Attorney General and encourage the citizens of New Hampshire to 
take full advantage of the services made available by its creation. 

We believe that the protection of New Hampshire's citizens from 
false and misleading advertising and from unfair and deceptive busi- 
ness practices is a legitimate goal of responsible goverment, as is the 
protection of the legitimate businessman from unfair competition. 

Crime and Justice 

The Republican Party commends the conscientious efforts of our 
local, county and state law enforcement officers in their continuing 
attempt to check the rising crime rate. 

We recommend further expansion of the activities of the Governor's 
Commission on Crime and Delinquency in order to further aid in law 
enforcement on all levels. 

We recommend that the Legislature consider codification of the 
New Hampshire criminal laws. 

We recommend the activities of the Citizens Committee on the Ad- 
ministration of Justice and urge them to make specific proposals for ac- 
tion by the Legislature. 

Drugs 

The Republican Party pledged to continue its highly acclaimed at- 
tack on drug abuse with a three-pronged program of education, en- 
forcement and effective rehabilitation. Our excellent progress in edu- 
cation and enforcement must now be emphasized in rehabilitation. 

Ecology and Open Space 

New Hampshire's wonderful natural beauties must be maintained 
and her inland and coastal wetlands preserved. Open space should be 
preserved consistent with sound growth. We will support open space 
legislation to offer deferred taxation on agriculture, forest, recreation 
and wild land. Such legislation should provide for tax recapture suffi- 
cient to recover deferred taxes and to prevent speculators from bene- 
fitting at the expense of our taxpayers.

The Republican Party is firmly committed to greater quality of edu- 
cational opportunity in New Hampshire at all levels. 

We pledge a further increase in state aid to local school districts. 

We pledge that there will be a continuing reassessment of education- 
al organization, administration and methods. 

We pledge to work for an equitable professional negotiations law. 

We pledge to encourage the better utilization of our vocational-tech- 
nical facilities. 

We shall continue to support quality education for the non-public 
(parochial) schools of our state. 

We urge improvement and expansion of the Higher Education Loan 
Plan. 

We pledge to continue to fund our State University system at a 
level that will insure its continued excellence in higher educaion. 

We strongly believe that state officials and college administrators 
must exercise firmness and vigilance to insure the rights of all students 
to the education they and their parents are paying for .... an educa- 
tion free from subversion, violence, or threats of violence, while zeal- 
ously guarding the rights of academic freedom and free speech. 

We urge the continuance of the ROTC program at the University of 
New Hampshire, and we zealously guard the rights of the participants 
in this program to receive their commissions in the traditional manner. 

We urge that under no circumstances is the American Flag to be 
removed from any public platform because of threats of violence. 

Fuel Oil 

The Republican Party of New Hampshire will do all in its power to 
persuade President Nixon to alter his present fuel oil formula for New 
England in such a way that a large enough quota be established at 
the earliest possible date to provide sufficient supplies of fuel oil for 
the winter of 1970-71 and the future for all needs at fair prices com- 
mensurate to other areas in the United States. Furthermore, to insure a 
stable supply of fuel oil for the future, the Party will exert all possible 
effort to cause the assignment of the construction of a petroleum re- 
finery in New England, as has previously been proposed. 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 423 

Health & Welfare 

Having demonstrated our deep concern through initiating the pro- 
gram of State aid to local mental health Clinics, the Republican Party 
pledges continued emphasis in planning and in financial support of 
this established program. 

The Republican Party pledges to improve services and conditions 
at the New Hampshire Hospital. 

The Republican Party pledges to expand the geriatrics program at 
Glencliff, thus further reducing the permanent load at the New 
Hampshire Hospital. 

The Republican Party, having initiated action which resulted this 
year in the State's acceptance of about fifty percent of the foster chil- 
dren for room and board payments, urges the Legislature to study pro- 
visions for additional responsibility in this field. 

We encourage the increased use of our vocational-technical institutes 
to train para-professionals in the medical field. 

Highways 

The Republican Party pledges to support a realistic highway pro- 
gram toward completion of the master plan for primary and secondary 
highways. 

Recognizing that the natural beauty of New Hampshire's highways is 
one of our greatest assets, we urge that every effort be made to main- 
tain and beautify our highway system. We pledge to implement fur- 
ther programs to control highway litter. 

We recommend that a greater percentage of the state gas tax rev- 
enues be allocated for use by cities and towns. 

We urge the Federal government to return more highway funds to 
the states. 

Industry 

The Republican Party pledges to seek and promote the establish- 
ment in our state of new, high-wage industries with pollution-free 
facilities. 

We pledge to continue to seek ways to assist our present New Hamp- 
shire industries to up-grade their wages and facilities. 



424 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

We pledge to seek new industry through selective, personal sales- 
manship and promotion. 

Labor 

The Republican Party of New Hampshire will urge Congress to 
place sharp restrictions on foreign imports of shoes, textiles and elec- 
tronics in order to protect the jobs of New Hampshire workers. 

Unemployment compensation benefits should be increased to pro- 
vide dependency allowances to workers laid off through no fault of 
their own sufficient maintenance during such periods of unemployment. 

Local Government 

Towns and cities should be given great latitude to form voluntary 
joint area or regional organizations to cope with problems that can 
best be served by such joint action. Local governments, including coun- 
ties, should be urged to do for themselves to the maximum extent possi- 
ble to assure a continuing high degree of home rule. 

Pollution 

It is the Republican desire to stop pollution and preserve our en- 
vironment. In order to secure this goal promptly and effectively, we 
propose the following: 

1. To investigate and enforce the present anti-pollution laws. 

2. To introduce legislation in those areas where pollution controls are 
either weak or non-existent. 

3. To supply individuals and local governments with technical advice 
and supervision in their anti-pollution efforts. 

4. To accelerate the clean-up of our water ways by introducing legis- 
lation to ease the financial burden of towns constructing and main- 
taining sewerage systems. 

5. To make those who pollute pay the clean-up costs. 

We pledge to seek new ways to better coordinate all pollution control 
plans and efforts. 

Recreation and Fish and Game 

The Republican Party leadership has initiated orderly and prosperous 
expansion of New Hampshire's recreational facilities. 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 425 

We recommend that immediate action be taken to protect and restore 
New Hampshire's historically valuable properties. 

We recommend that New Hampshire residents receive preferential 
treatment at state-owned recreational areas. 

We reaffirm our pledge to encourage orderly expansion and develop- 
ment of recreational areas by the private sector. 

We pledge to continue to protect the rights of New Hampshire 
sportsmen. 

We oppose the enactment of gun control laws. 

Senior Citizens 

Because current Social Security regulations prohibit able elderly 
from earning significant additional income by reducing benefits pro- 
portionately, we propose that the New Hampshire Congressional dele- 
gation be urged to support amendments to the law allowing recipients 
to earn more money. 

Older persons have specialized nutrition needs which are com- 
pounded by income and transportation problems. Not only do they 
need special foods, but they often cannot afford them, and cannot find 
ways to get to where the food is. Therefore, we should move on these 
problems by: 

Instituting a pilot project to test the Federal Food Stamp Program, 
which will allow older persons who qualify to purchase the special 
foods they need at substantial savings from local stores. 

Because the elderly are subject to increasing medical and drug costs, 
we propose that the New Hampshire Congressional delegation be urged 
to support a minimum extension of Medicare benefits to cover out-of- 
hospital drug costs. 

Because loneliness is one of the pervasive problems facing our elders, 
and because older persons should have a variety of choices about how 
they decide to use their time, and further because towns and munici- 
palities have not been able to allocate their money directly to serve the 
elderly, therefore, we should encourage the Legislature to amend the 
Powers and Duties of Towns Act (RSA 31) to allow allocation of 
funds directly for programs for the benefit of older citizens — both for 
recreation centers and facilities and for other service facilities needed 
by older citizens. 



426 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

State Employees 

The Republican Party recognizes the dedication and faithful service 
of the State's many employees. 

We reaffirm our pledge that the salary and wage policy for state em- 
ployees be based upon equal pay for equal work and that salaries meet 
prevailing rates. 

We advocate the strengthening of the state's personnel system by 
supporting its review by competent professional consultants. 

We are in favor of increased fringe benefits to state employees and as 
such recommend an amendment to the employees' retirement system 
in order to provide equitable death benefits to state employees' bene- 
ficiaries. We further recommend increased state contributions to both 
the emplovees' hospital and medical insurance and life insurance plans. 

Taxation 

The needs of the state can be met within the present tax structure. 

We do not propose nor will we support either a general sales tax or a 
personal income tax. We believe the Business Profits Tax, a tax which 
will grow with the economy, has eliminated the necessity for new taxes. 

Direct property tax relief for New Hampshire's hard-pressed home- 
owners is desirable. Therefore, we recommend the Governor appoint 
a special commission to evaluate the equity and the cost to the State 
of the so-called Homestead Exemption Plan. 

Young People 

The Republican Party, recognizing the interest, vigor, imagination, 
and greater awareness of young people, pledges to seek and encourage 
responsible participation by our youth in the political process. 

We are concerned with the incidence of violence and disorder created 
today by a small minority, and we urge responsible young men and 
women to turn their attention and political awareness to this serious 
problem. 

We affirm our support for 18 year olds being given the right to vote. 
We invite and urge young people to join our Republican effort to 
continue the direction and leadership which this state so urgently 
needs and rightfully expects. 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 427 



Conclusion 



We, the Republican Party of New Hampshire, do hereby present 
this Platform, dedicated to a Constitutional government, and we will 
attend practically and diligently to the rights of the citizens of New 
Hampshire. 

We ask that on November third these citizens come forward, having 
carefully and thoughtfully considered the issues, to give support for 
their beliefs. Only through full voter participation can our goal of a 
better New Hampshire be fully attained.

PREAMBLE 

The philosophy of the Democratic Party embodies the encourage- 
ment, implementation and support of vital, viable courses of action, 
designed to meet the current and future needs of the people. 

We, the Democratic Party of New Hampshire, are committed to 
serving human needs, and find that the means for implementing our 
programs to meet these needs are not available. We have concluded, 
therefore, that state and local issues can no longer be separated from 
national issues. The war in Southeast Asia, as Senator Mclntyre has 
indicated, must be stopped, and the budget of the Department of De- 
fense must be reduced. These funds must be re-allocated to domestic 
needs. New Hampshire cannot continue to spend over 200 million 
dollars on war each year. 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 433 

The Democratic Party of New Hampshire shall be furthermore com- 
mitted to a condemnation of the Nixon War policy, to a repudiation of 
of the Cambodian debacle, and to the endorsement of the McGovern- 
Hatfield amendment formula to end the violence currently raging in 
Southeast Asia. 

The present turmoil and discontent rampant in New Hampshire 
and the nation point up the necessity for far-sighted, well-planned, 
decisive action now. This action must be initiated and continued, not 
only by the seasoned elders of the Party, but also, and especially, by 
the spirited and committed young people who are the hope of our 
state and our nation. 

It is with the utmost faith in the ideals, dedication and concern of 
the Democratic Party and its leaders, for the citizens of our nation 
and the world, that we, the delegates of the New Hampshire, in Con- 
vention this third day of October, 1970, hereby adopt our 1970 Plat- 
form. 

Agriculture 

Statistics indicate an extremely low income accruing to the farmer 
as a result of his hard labor and economical management. His per- 
centage of return is discouragingly low in comparison to the capital 
he has invested in land, buildings, and equipment. To improve these 
conditions which have developed and prevailed over a considerable 
period of time, we recommend: 

— continued support of federal efforts to assure that fruit and vegeta- 
ble growers obtain sufficient seasonal farm workers, at an adequate 
wage. 

— continued insistence that freight rates for grain and other com- 
modities be comparable to rates in other sections of the country. 

— continued financial support of the College of Agriculture, the Co- 
operative Extension Service, and the Experiment Station at the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire to insure modern research, training and 
agricultural service. 

— creation of local public forums for discussion of such problems as 
food supply, agricultural labor, and the impact of consumer prices, 
where farmers, organized labor, business, industry, consumers and 
appropriate state and federal agencies may exchange views. 



434 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

— continued support of the following: 

a) the creation of a new standard for food and agriculture in- 
spection since present ones are more than 50 years old (the federal 
government will substantially meet these costs, but New Hampshire 
must provide approved laboratory services) , 

b) an augmented and improved rabies control program, 

c) an animal disease control program to replace the federal pro- 
gram being turned over to the states, 

d) an improved Gypsy Moth Control Program, 

e) laboratory services for large animals at a new Research and 
Pathology Center at the University of New Hampshire or by con- 
tracting for reliable service from regional institutions. 



Consumer Affairs 

The current inflationary climate makes consumer education and 
protection increasingly important in order to insure effective utiliza- 
tion of the consumer dollars available for shelter, health and personal 
welfare. To provide adequate consumer education and protection, we 
recommend: 

— the establishment of a Consumer Council with enough independence, 
authority and financial support to conduct investigations and to 
submit public reports recommending legislation in such areas as: 
door-to-door selling, recision, home repairs, land fraud, automobile 
insurance, meat and fish processing, itemized funeral billing, tire 
grading, garnishment-of-wage policy, public utility costs, and in- 
terest rates on loans. 



Economic Prosperity and Development 

To sustain our economic prosperity, to upgrade those sections of the 
state which have not shared in this prosperity, and to protect an en- 
vironment essential to healthy growth, we recommend: 

— the formation of an economic development policy to promote healthy 
and balanced growth to the state's economy, 

— continued support of industrial development through research di- 
rected toward the expansion and diversification of the economy and 
the discovery of new markets; increased state support for develop- 
ment and promotion activities, 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 435 

— continued support and utilization of federal programs for economic 
development, 

— continued implementation of the Technical Services Act to provide 
services to private industry, 

— continued support of the work of the Rural Area Development Com- 
mittee in each of the ten counties. 

— increased support, on an expanded basis, of the activities of the 
New Hampshire Commission on the Arts which has already shown 
that a well-developed state arts program creates an additional di- 
mension of financial, commercial and educational growth. 

— continued support of cooperative programs among local, state and 
federal groups to enhance economic progress, especially through 
implementation of the Public Works and Economic Development 
Act, the Manpower Development and Training Act, and through 
wider use of the Small Business Administration programs. 

— support of measures initiated by our Congressional delegation to 
rescind the closure order for the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and 
expand the activities of this important facility. 

— support of any reasonable measures, public or private, to lower elec- 
tric rates in New Hampshire. 

— promotion of the tourist industry through an expanded system of 
highway information centers, a state sign system for lodging, meals 
and garage services, and wide distribution of a well-designed tourist 
handbook. 

— promote the acceleration of current federal programs to build low 
and moderate cost housing, particularly for the elderly and disad- 
vantaged, and the formation of a state housing authority to facili- 
ate this action. 

— support of vocational-technical training to attract industries which 
require more skilled labor, and pay higher wages. 

— support the establishment and funding of regional offices throughout 
the nation to promote industry and tourism in the State of New 
Hampshire. 

Education 

New Hampshire's future depends on the provisions of an educational 
system of unqualified excellence for all boys and girls of the state so 
as to develop their talents and abilities to the maximum. 



436 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

Statistics indicate deficiencies in our educational system that are 
due, for the most part, to insufficient financial support for the latest, 
most innovative educational practices, and the best qualified personnel 
to implement such a system. 

The Democratic Party continues to advocate and support the highest 
educational standards, and therefore, we recommend: 
—full financial implementation of Building Aid, District Reorganiza- 
tion Aid, and Special Education programs for the handicapped, 
— funding, as legislated, for the Foundation Aid Program, 
— state assistance to local school districts in their efforts to raise stan- 
dards by helping to pay for the costs of these improvements, and by 
providing increased field services to the local schools through the 
State Department of Education, 
— continuation of the program of state aid to school districts with non- 
public schools with the condition that: 

a) such aid not include funds for religious education; 

b) state standards for all schools be rigidly enforced; 

c) adequate funding at the state level be provided; 

d) such aid be within constitutional limits. 
— support of the following measures: 

a) maintenance of a teachers' salary scale commensurate with cost 
of living, with the state sharing in these costs; this should also in- 
clude maintenance of salaries of principals and superintendents at 
competitive levels, 

b) changes in certification standards as recommended by the Blue 
Ribbon Certification Committee, 

c) encouragement of more imaginative uses of the talent and time 
of trained teachers; team teaching, teacher aides, part-time teachers, 
specialists, etc. 

d) utilization of talented people and private agencies in the com- 
munities as educational resources. 

— State leadership and help, to both local school boards and local 
teachers' organizations, in establishing mutually acceptable proced- 
ures for professional negotiations; 

— maximum use of federal aid to education while retaining state and 
local supervision of the distribution and administration of the funds; 
urging that the time of federal allocations be made in a manner 
which will make local school financial planning possible; 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 437 

— support of the Blue Ribbon Citizen's Committee on teacher certifi- 
cation; 
— increased support of Educational Television; 

— full financial implementation of New Hampshire's State-wide Li- 
brary Development Program; 

— financial support of our State University system at a level no less than 
the per student support accorded by states with comparable economic 
capability; 

— encouragement of the University's efforts to institute charges for 
new out-of-state students that equal the costs of their education, to 
the end that in-state tuitions may be kept within limits comparable 
to those of states of comparable size and economic capability; 

— support of the following measures to bring vocational, technical, and 
two and four year college opportunities within the economic and 
geographic reach of all New Hampshire citizens who wish to take 
advantage of them: 

a) more adequate funding of the vocational and technical in- 
stitutes, and enrichment of their curricula; 

b) scholarship and other financial aid to enable needy students to 
obtain training; 

c) encouragement of private school efforts to provide enriched 
educational opportunities for all New Hampshire students; 

d) the creation of comprehensive commuting college opportunities, 
especially for those who need vocational or technical training; 

e) expansion of the Merrimack Valley Branch of the University 
of New Hampshire by the appropriation of funds in the 1971-72 
capital budget to construct the first academic building of the New 
Merrimack Valley Branch Campus; 

— continued support of the Dollars-For-Scholars Program, as legislated, 
and for adequate funding to provide incentive matching money for 
monies raised locally from private sources; 

— support of federal legislation which would enable all capable stu- 
dents to obtain education beyond high school; 

— support of vocational rehabilitation programs and adult basic edu- 
cation programs so that all New Hampshire citizens may have the 
maximum opportunity to lead productive lives; 

— encouragement, with state support, of local school efforts in the fol- 
lowing areas: 



438 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

a) establishment of public kindergartens for all; 

b) Head Start and Follow-Through programs in the early grades; 

c) improvement of vocational education courses in high school to 
enable terminal students to find employment after graduation; 

d) implementation of innovative programs; 

e) expansion of counselors' services at the elementary level; 

f) development and presentation of total hygiene programs at all 
school levels; 

— support of efforts to encourage the upgrading of the teaching pro- 
fession including incentive increments for special training, and ad- 
vanced degrees, and the availability of regional course opportunities 
at low tuition. 

Government Organization 

In an effort to promote efficient and responsive state government, we 
recommend:

torial term of office from two to four years; 

— establishment of terms of officer of major department heads concur- 
rent to that of the Governor; 

— establishment of procedures to improve the fiscal supervision of state 
agencies; 

— support modernization of the State Legislature by:

PARTY ORGANIZATION 439 

c) support of efforts to require the state to assume the cost of 
certain services now funded fully or in part by the towns and 
cities, thus relieving the heavy tax burden on local property 
owners; 

d) support of efforts to require the state to extend its revaluation 
service to municipalities. 

Health and Welfare 

The economic prosperity of our state would be a hollow achieve- 
ment if fellow citizens are forced to bear the burden of poverty, are 
crushed by poor health, are trapped by mental illness or retardation. 

The Democratic Party has a deep and continuing commitment to 
provide help to the poor, the ill and the aged. To continue to imple- 
ment this commitment, we recommend: 

— legislation which would give the state responsibilty for care of foster 
children; a more uniform subsidy rate for foster homes; and the 
further active participation of private agencies in the placement of 
foster children; 

— state financial support of foster children, including funds adequate 
to assist those in need of special care, to provide necessary school tui- 
tion costs, and to reimburse foster parents at a level commensurate 
with required expenditures; 

— abolition of the welfare settlement law and in its place, state reim- 
bursement of towns and cities through direct relief; 

— support of legislation establishing a domestic relations court; 

— adequate salary standards and a practical work load for state social 

workers; 
— funding of post-graduate programs for the training of social workers 

at the University of New Hampshire; 

— encouragement of education and work experience for welfare reci- 
pients to help them avoid the need for welfare; 

— strengthening of licensing procedures in New Hampshire nursing 

homes; 
— increased state support for a registered nurse and practical nurse 

training program; 

— clarification of the relationship between county hospitals and nursing 
homes; 



440 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

— full utilization of federal matching funds for community health 
services; 

— cooperation with neighboring states in planning regional diagnostic 
and treatment centers for the control of cancer and other killer 

diseases; 

— increased state and local support for, and expansion of, Community 
Mental Health Clinics; 

— expansion of out patient facilities and resident care centers for emo- 
tionally disturbed children with emergency receiving centers in com- 
munity hospitals for the acutely mentally disturbed; 

— support of plans to more fully implement Medicare and to extend 
Medicaid; 

— support comprehensive health planning and development of com- 
prehensive group health care facilities, using our total health re- 
sources in the delivery of health maintenance and health rehabili- 
tation services; 

— that the existing abortion laws in New Hampshire be repealed pro- 
vided that there be controls which provide for: proper medical safe- 
guards and supervision, respect for the dignity of human life and 
for the right of individuals to follow the dictates of prudence and 
conscience, and with proper procedures provided to provide assistance 
to those who otherwise would be financially unable to take advantage 
of the procedure established; 

— support of adequate day care centers, properly licensed; 

— establishment of an advisory committee to study and recommend 
changes in present laws governing the adoption of children in order 
to insure uniform and reasonable practices; 

— support of legislation establishing a comprehensive, coordinated 
nursing care program that is fair to needy persons in private homes, 
and that establishes adequate standards of care; 

— reimburseemnt for public health nurses serving towns without a 
local nursing service agency; 

— recodification of laws pertaining to minors (particularly statutes 
which fail to distinguish between juvenile delinquents and neglected 
children); 

— legislation pertaining to the abuses of parental rights that severely 
hamper the welfare of the child; 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 441 

-support of provisions for more group homes for youth who are dis- 
turbed in their own homes and need trained foster parents more 
than institutional care; 

-more adequate funding for diagnosis and treatment of social or 
emotional problems in very early school years to prevent the more 
difficult treatment of more complicated problems later; 

-support for the State Council on the Aging: 

a) formation of local councils on aging, 

b) appropriation of state funds for non-federal shares, not con- 
tributed by cities and towns, to provide adequate services for the 
elderly, 

c) expansion of opportunity for the elderly to render service, 

d) increased attention to the housing needs of the elderly. 

-support of programs designed to train paraprofessional workers in 
the area of social and health services, to ease the acute shortage of 
such workers; 

-support of treatment for alcoholics and drug abusers: 

a) recuperation facilities with provisions for after-sickness facilities, 

b) neighboring alcoholic and drug abuse rehabilitation programs 
with trained workers. 

c) strict punitive measures for professional drug pushers and syn- 
dicated operators, 

d) legislation permitting minors to seek help for drug and other 
problems without parental notification. 

-support of the recommendations of the Vocational Rehabilitation 
Planning Commission, including: 

a) a Department of Special Education at Keene State College; vo- 
cational rehabilitation internship and in-service training programs 
in the University system; 

b) creation of a council on Human Resources to coordinate and to 
do joint planning for those state agencies working with people 
and to provide a comprehensive referral system to insure that all 
New Hampshire citizens needing help have access to it; 

c) creation of regional Child Development centers; 

d) creation of a diagnostic center for the Department of Correction, 
for adults, to be located in the Concord area; 

e) development of a northern New England facility for the crimi- 
nally insane; 



442 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

f) incentive grants to non-profit corporations for development of 
half-way houses and sheltered workshops; 

g) extend vocational rehabilitation service to county Houses of 
Correction. 

—we deplore the lack of Presidential concern for meeting the increas- 
ing pressing financial needs of health, education and welfare. The 
President's refutation of programs designed to aid individuals and 
families in terms of aid to those who lead a marginal existence, per- 
sonifies a lack of commitment to these same people and their needs. 
Therefore, we strongly protest the President's veto of the Health, 
Education and Welfare bill passed by the 1970 Congress. 

Human Rights and Justice 

In a time of violence in our cities, unrest on our campuses, and un- 
easiness in our homes, we reaffirm our commitment to the goals of 
justice and equal opportunity. It is also essential to remember that 
freedom from want is integral to social justice. We encourage respect 
for laws, and support public officials who exercise reasonably their 
duly constituted authority. At the same time, we urge reaffirmation 
of the concepts that all citizens are entitled to exercise their constitu- 
tional rights, that each is entitled to equal protection of the laws, and 
that law enforcement agents are themselves subject to the laws. To 
achieve these objectives, we recommend: 

— adequate funding, and salaried staff for the New Hampshire Human 
Rights Commission to make it a more effective instrument against 
discrimination in the state; 

— opposition to all who would seek to undermine the foundations of 
American constitutional democracy, including all those who would 
suppress or abuse free speech and academic freedom. 

- — continued support of measures such as: ABC, A Better Chance; a 
cooperative town-college-high school program for disadvantaged 
youth; summer camp programs for disadvantaged youngsters; the 
use of elementary school textbooks which mirror the reality of dif- 
ferent races, income levels and more; the provision of health care, 
particularly preventative medicine to the economically disadvan- 
taged, so as to assure fair participation of the poor, regardless of 
color, in the benefits of an affluent society; 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 443 

-amendment of the landlord and tenant law of New Hampshire to 
protect the rights of tenants from arbitrary action on the part of 
the landlords, while at the same time giving due consideration to 
the protection of the economic interests of the landlords; 

-continued support of the movement to lower the voting age to 
eighteen (18) years. 

-amendment of the New Hampshire Law against discrimination (RSA 
354-a) to cover discrimination in employment because of sex and 
age. 

-provision of many more units of new or rehabilitated housing units 
for low income families. 



Labor 

In keeping with the long commitment of the Democratic Party to 
improving the working conditions and security of labor, we recom- 
mend: 

— legislation establishing a minimum wage comparable to the federal 
minimum wage and providing full coverage for all workers; 

— opposition to any so-called "Right to work" laws; 

— legislation to protect the rights of all workers, and to include the 
passage of a balanced negotiations law which will act in the best 
interests of both public employees and their citizen employees; 

— support of efforts to retrain workers whose skills have become obso- 
lete through technological innovation; 

— reorganization and strengthening of the Labor Department to: 

a) more adequately protect the safety of the worker; 

b) allow for more participation by workers in developing safety 
programs; 

c) develop more effective measures to prevent workers from being 
compelled to work overtime against their wishes and self-interest; 

— a careful review of unemployment and workmen's compensation 
legislation to: 

a) insure that all qualified claimants are aware of and receive 
benefits due them; 

b) include greater benefits for those who are unemployed and have 
dependent children; 



444 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

c) expand workmen's compensation benefits to include greater 
assistance to those rendered disabled, through their employment, 
who have dependent children; 

— support of measures to insure fair treatment for all state employees, 
i.e.: 

a) salaries and fringe benefits for classified state employees com- 
parable to the average for similar positions in the other five New 
England states — equal pay for equal work; 

b) reforms in the evaluation procedures for classified positions as 
implemented by the State Personnel Department; 

c) reforms of the appeal procedure required by the Personnel 
Commission; 

d) the introduction of in-service training programs to enable 
state employees to improve performance, and incentives for suc- 
cessful completion of such programs; 

e) review of existing statutes prohibiting a classified state em- 
ployee from making contributions to the political party of his 
choice and/or publicly support candidates of his choice; 

f) support the supplementing of Workmen's Compensation by the 
use of leave up to full pay; 

g) support the provision of time and one-half pay after eight (8) 
hours in a day and forty (40) hours in a week, and for work on 
legal holidays; 

h) support the proposal of state contributions to hospitalization 
insurance. 

— support the requirement that state institutions purchase New Hamp- 
shire products wherever possible within the limits of competitive 
price and quality: 

— support, on the state level, the national platform's demand for ade- 
quate protection of wage earners from unfair foreign imports; 

— support programs to reverse the pattern of underemployment in the 
northern sections of the state, and low wages employment through- 
out the entire state; 

Natural Resources 

Second to its people, New Hampshire's most precious resource is 
Nature. Natural and scenic resources are a critically important element 
in the scheme of New Hampshire's future economy. These resources 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 445 

are of prime importance today and shall provide our most vital legacy 
to future generations. 

Unique natural areas must be protected, acquired, or reserved im- 
mediately, while land is still available. To this end, we recommend: 

— continuous planning at all levels of government to evaluate our 
natural resources and to devise and institute the best methods of 
utilizing and protecting them; 

— protection of our great scenic and recreation resources, including our 
parks, Mount Washington and Franconia Notch, our seashores, our 
mountains, the Great Bay, and primitive areas such as the Con- 
necticut Lakes; 

— further implementation of the recommendations of the State Plan- 
ning Projects, the Governor's committees on Natural Beauty and 
Forest Policies; 

— prevention of the life blood of our towns and cities by a continuing 
struggle against the blight of water, noise, and air pollution through 
all available means, particularly by providing the necessary technical 
staff, financial assistance and legislation to combat them; 

— enforcement of the existing laws pertaining to water and air pollu- 
tion by the Attorney General's office, per direction of the Governor's 
office; 

— legislation and financial incentives to protect salt and fresh water 
marshes, banks, flood plains and restore barrow pits; 

— support of town conservation commissions with technological assis- 
tance; 

— legislation to protect land from rural blight and insure lasting and 
proper development; continued support of the severance tax on 
timber as a measure to that end; 

— flexible powers for wild life management to the Director of the 
Fish and Game Department; 

— provision of more adequate funding for the stocking of game birds 
and animals; 

— establishment of a five-year moratorium on the construction of all 
nuclear power plants in New England until the environmental dan- 
gers have been fully explored; 

— development of a program for placing utility lines underground in 
all new building areas and for conversions in established zones; 



446 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

— development of an improved program of public access to lakes, ponds, 
without diminishing the qualities of these recreational resources; 

— improvement in the efficiency and coordination of state programs 
in Natural Resources in the following ways: 

a) reorganization of state resources agencies into a Department of 
Natural Resources which would include such agencies as the Di- 
vision of Parks, Division of Resource Development (forestry), Fish 
and Game Department, Water Resources Board and Water and 
Air Pollution Agencies; 

b) promotion and expansion of the office for the receiving of com- 
plaints on pollution; 

c) by further strengthening and supporting the Council of Re- 
sources and Development; 

— establishment of rigid water pollution controls and regulations to 
insure "Clean Water" throughout the State of New Hampshire and 
recognition of the State's obligation to assist cities, towns and private 
enterprise to accomplish this end by providing technical and financial 
assistance; 

— support of public and private planning and development programs 
with particular emphasis on encouraging orderly planned develop- 
ment of our natural resources while retaining New Hampshire's 
scenic beauty; 

— support of action to enforce the federal studies of New Hampshire's 
waterways to preserve their unspoiled and primitive beauty from 
unrestrained development, and to achieve the full economic potential 
of these waterways; 

— passage of the necessary legislation to supplement a strong state 
oceanographic program with emphasis on regional cooperation to 
protect our valuable estuaries and to achieve the full benefits from 
our marine resources; 

— support legislation towards the banning of all No-Deposit — No 
Return bottles and aluminum cans within a two-year period; 

— establishment of programs for town and cities to assist them in the 
establishment of waste disposal systems; 

— strive in every possible way to secure absolute protection of the in- 
tegrity of the White Mt. National Forest as a great multiple-use 
national asset of the people of our state, region and nation, and 
further, that the recent report of the Public Land Law Review Com- 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 447 

mission be given the most thorough coordinated study by the State 
Council of Resources and Development and interested private or- 
ganizations insofar as it affects the best interests of New Hampshire. 



Planning for Growth 

Planning is a dynamic process by which people and communities 
evaluate their needs and the problems and establish goals and ob- 
jectives for their future action. To this end, we recommend: 

— financial incentives for regional planning; 

— maximum use of federal aid, such as Urban Planning Assistance 

Grants, and other programs related to transportation, open space, 

water and community facilities; 

— close collaboration with regional development and promotional ef- 
forts, particularly the New England Regional Commission, the New 
Hampshire-Vermont Development Council, the Tri-County Resource, 
Conservation and Development District, the Industrial Councils, the 
Technical Assistance Panels, the Rural Areas Development Com- 
mittees, and the Regional Associations; 

— legislation allowing cities and towns to create cooperative tax dis- 
tricts for special services. 

Public Safety 

The increase in highway accidents and the resulting tragic conse- 
quences to New Hampshire families, as well as the multiplication of 
other public safety problems in recent years, impels us to recommend: 

— periodic re-examination of all drivers to determine the state of their 
health and physical condition; 

support of a state program to implement the Highway Safety Act; 

— establishment of a broad program of traffic studies to aid local com- 
munities in their traffic control and road planning efforts; 

— mandatory, periodic re-examination of accident repeaters; 

— continued strengthening of stand-by emergency plans to cope with 
riots and continuing studies of their origins and causes; 

— support of New Hampshire Law Enforcement Plan, 1970-74, as it 
applies to Public Safety; 



448 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

— implementation of plans to provide adequate instrument landing 
systems, FAA towers and improved weather reporting facilities at 
municipal airports throughout the state to efficiently handle the 
increased air traffic; 

— provision of additional funds for runway resealing and other preven- 
tative maintenance items, clearing of approach slopes, and relocation 
of the runway at Lincoln. (Lincoln Airport is vital to the safety of air 
travel by small planes in that it is the last runway before the Fran- 
conia Mountain Range going in a northerly direction and the first 
when trouble is encountered over the Range in a southerly direc- 
tion); 

— mandatory fire escapes for all commercial or public buildings of two 
stories or more (the requirement now applies only to three-story 
buildings) , and adequate exits in all apartment buildings; 

— establishment of a state program for fire prevention training, using 
existing facilities, of sufficient scope to enable every community in 
the state to take advantage of modern-day, constantly advancing 
training concepts; 

— establishment of minimum standards for equipment and personnel 
operating ambulances in the state; 

— establishment of regulations governing the limits of boat speeds, 
horsepower of boats, hours of operation, age of operators and water- 
skiing, after a thorough study of the capacity of our lakes to deter- 
mine such limits; 

— support of legislation to establish a State Minimum Standard Build- 
ing Code. 

Transportation 

We believe that sound transportation planning is crucial for attract- 
ing industry, for promoting tourism, and for providing convenient and 
safe motoring. We continue to support a well-administered and inte- 
grated transportation system subject to reasonable regulation. Ac- 
cordingly, we recommend: 

— completion of the Interstate Highway System in New Hampshire; 

— passage of enabling legislation to permit the state to appropriate 
funds far enough in advance to take immediate advantage of federal 
highway funds; 



PARTY ORGANIZATION 449 

— legislative appropriation of necessary matching funds under the 
Federal Aid Airport program to establish at least one major jet 
airport; 

— improvement of highway links to the New York-Washington cor- 
ridor, to Canadian metropolitan centers, and to join with neighbor- 
ing states in an East-West Highway System; 

— accelerated construction and improvement of our highway system in 
the North Country, including extension of the Spaulding Turnpike 
and an East-West artery; 

— utilization of federal and state funds for a first-rate network of air- 
ports and for improvement of navigational aids and flight services; 

— improved public transportation and cooperation in regional mass 
transportation planning; including planning for the restoration of 
passenger railway service to and in New Hampshire through Federal 
government action; 

— full utilization of scenic easement funds and legislation to preserve 
the beauty of our highways; 

— establishment of a highway route locations review board; 

— improvement of town roads by means of: 

a) allocation of 15% of state gas tax revenues, rather than a fixed 
figure, to the maintenance of local roads; 

b) state responsibility for bridges on state highways; 

c) increased state aid (TRA funds) for town bridges; 

d) insistence that state roads and bridges be returned to towns 
and cities in good condition. 

Revenue to Support the Preceding Proposals 

The State of New Hampshire has not escaped the economic havoc 
sweeping the entire nation. The fiscal pressures being exerted by the 
Federal Government are currently causing a decreasing demand for 
labor, and an ever-increasing rise in prices. Today, unemployment in 
New Hampshire is double what it was one year ago, yet prices con- 
tinue to spiral upward over 6% per year. And this, at a time when 
local governments are making ever-greater demands for taxes from 
their citizens. 

Prudence, then, would dictate that the Democratic Party, in keep- 
ing with its long-standing policy of seeking to protect the working 



450 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL 

man and the family of low income, make no further demands upon 
our citizenry for any form of regressive taxation at this time. 

Rather, every effort should be made to increase our state and local 
tax revenues within the framework of our existing tax structure. Strong 
executive leadership and aggressive promotion of our great natural as- 
sets, coupled with responsible planning and control to safeguard them, 
can substantially broaden New Hampshire's present revenue base 
through the increases in industrial and recreational development that 
will follow. 

Therefore, we must first: work to effect economics and efficiencies in 
state and local government wherever possible, to assure a uniform 
method of evaluating local property and to extend the revaluation 
service of the State Tax Commission to all cities and towns, to support 
early legislative enactment of a "tax recapture" plan under the provi- 
sions of the "open spaces amendment," to support the enactment of 
legislation establishing dog racing in New Hampshire, to support the 
enactment at the state level of general and more equitable taxes for 
the purpose of providing tax relief to individual local property tax- 
payers. 

Secondly, recognizing that the state can and should reduce the de- 
gree of dependence on local property taxes, we must work to accom- 
plish property tax revision in New Hampshire, seriously considering 
the concept of a "Homestead Exemption," i.e., direct relief to the 
property taxpayer, funded by the state. 

We must seek full utilization of federal matching funds in whatever 
field they may contribute to the initiation, extension, or improvement 
of facilities designed to enhance the quality of life in New Hampshire. 

We support the Federal Tax Sharing Plan now before the U. S. Con- 
gress in order to return to New Hampshire a portion of the Federal 
tax monies raised from New Hampshire citizens to be spent in New 
Hampshire to improve the quality of life for New Hampshire citizens.

RECOUNTS AFTER THE GENERAL ELECTION 



In this chapter may be found a brief description of the recounts of 
ballots held by the Secretary of State after the general election of 
November 3, 1970. 

On November 13, 1970, the Governor and Council voted to accept a 
petition to recount the ballots cast on Question No. 3, the proposed 
amendment relative to annual sessions as proposed to the voters of 
New Hampshire at the November 3, 1970 election, as submitted by 
Representative John M. Bednar of Hudson, et al., and ordered the 
Secretary of State to recount said ballots. 

The recount was held November 23 and 24, 1970, and Question No. 3 
did not receive the required two-thirds votes of the qualified voters 
present and voting upon the said question. 

The following figures are the result of the recount on Question No. 3: 



Yes 124,078 



No 62,812 



Below, in the first column are the figures as officially returned to the 
Secretary of State following the election. The second column contains 
the recount figures. 

In all, fourteen recounts were conducted: State Senator, District No. 
8; ten for Representatives, two for Supervisors, and one for Moderator. 

As a result of the recount, there were no changes of candidates.
