FIRE DEPARTMENT. 105 

The City is divided into seven Alarm Districts. Each District 
is subdivided into Stations, at each of which is a Signal Box. 
There are now fifty-two Signal Boxes or Stations, the number in 
a District varying from six to twelve. 

Alarms are transmitted to the Central Office, from the Signal 
Stations or Boxes, by turning a crank in the Box. The Police 
Officers and one other person resident near each Box, have keys 
to the Boxes. 

Alarms are usually given in less than a minute from the time 
the crank is turned in any box. 

DIRECTIONS TO THOSE WHO HOLD SIGNAL KEYS. 

1. If a fire is discovered in your vicinity, go to the nearest 
box in the District. 

2. Turn the crank twenty-Jive times, rather slowly at first, 
then quite fast at last. If convenient, wait at the Box so as to 
direct the firemen where to go. 

3. If you hear no reply at the Box, or on the bells, turn 
again. If still no reply, go to another Box in the District. 

4. The Police, upon hearing the bells, will spring their rat- 
tles, and call the number of the District and Station. 

The alarm will be given from the Central Station by striking 
the number of the District on the bells, and tapping the number 
of the Station in the Boxes. 

CAUTIONS. 

1. Be sure that your Box is locked before leaving it. 

2. Never open the Box or touch the apparatus, except in 
case of fire. 

3. Never let the key go out of your possession, unless called 
for by the City Authorities. 

There are 52 Signal Stations distributed and located in accord- 
ance with the following plan : —

Although the need of a public library had been for a consid- 
erable time felt and acknowledged, and a small number of vol- 
umes of a miscellaneous character had been sent to the City Hall 
with a view to the future formation of such an institution, nothing 
definite in relation thereto was done until the fifth of August, 
1850, when Hon. John P. Bigelow, then Mayor of the City, 
contributed the sum of one thousand dollars for the purpose of 
establishing the Public Library. This donation, being the first 
money that was given for the object, was received joyfully and 
funded by the City Council ; and the Committee on the Library 
were directed " to proceed with as little delay as possible to 
carry into effect the establishment of a free Public Library." 

Joshua Bates, Esq., of London, whose early life was passed 
in Boston, having offered to this city the munificent sum of fifty 
thousand dollars towards the purchase of books for the Public 
Library of the city, if the city would erect a suitable building for' 
that purpose, — on the 24th of February, 1853, an order was 
passed by the City Council, authorizing the Committee on the 
Library, in conference with the Board of Trustees, to purchase a 
suitable site for the erection of a building which should be fully 
adapted for the purpose of the Library, including Mr. Bates' do- 
nation. Accordingly, said Committee purchased 23,384 feet of 
land on Boylston Street, opposite the Common, upon which an 
elegant and commodious edifice has been erected, at a cost to the 
city, for land and building, amounting to about $ 365,000. 

This building was finished and delivered into the custody of 
the City Council, and by the City Council was transmitted to the 
care of the Trustees of the Public Library, with appropriate cere- 
monies, on January 1, 1858. 

Besides the above-mentioned donations in money, the sum of 
ten thousand dollars was subsequently given by Hon. Jonathan 



MARKET. 119 

Phillips, who, by his will, bequeathed an additional sum of 
twenty thousand dollars for the maintenance of the Library. 
Another sum of ten thousand dollars was bequeathed by the late 
Hon. Abbott Lawrence. All of these sums have been funded 
by the City Council, and the annual proceeds are expended for 
the purchase of books of permanent value. 

The sum of one thousand dollars was given by the late Samuel 
Appleton, Esq., and the same amount by Mrs. Sally I. K. 
Shepard, for the purpose of procuring books for the immediate 
use of the public. 

Very valuable donations of books have also been made by the 
late Kev. Theodore, Parker, the heirs of Hon. Nathaniel 
Bowditch, George Ticknor, and others. 

The Library is open every day, with the exception of Sundays 
and the legal holidays, for the delivery of books for home use, 
from 10 A. M. to 8 o'clock, p. m. ; and the Reading Rooms con- 
nected therewith are opened from 9 A. m. to 10 o'clock, p. m. ; 
both which privileges are enjoyed freely by all of suitable ages 
who agree to conform to the regulations of the Public Library.

IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER OF THEIR SERVICE, 



INSTITUTION, MAY 1, 1822, TO JANUARY 7, 1862, 



.A. 1ST INDEX. 



PRELIMINARY REMARKS. 



MAYORS. 

The asterisk denotes the deceased. 

The Junior of Theodore Lyman omitted in 1839. 

The election of Mayor for 1845 was more warmly contested 
than in any former year. There were not less than eight sev- 
eral ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the 
twenty-first of February, Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the mean time, from January to February 27, 1845, Wil- 
liam Parker, one of the Aldermen, having been elected Chairman 
of the Board of Aldermen, performed the duties of Mayor. 

On the sixth of October, Thomas A. Davis being in declining 
health, resigned the office of Mayor, which resignation, however, 
was not accepted by the City Council ; and on the twenty-second 
of November he died, being the first Mayor who has died in office 
since the organization of the City Government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quincy, Jr. was elected 
Mayor by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. 

Benson Leavitt, one of the Board of Aldermen, acted as Chair- 
man of the Board in the interval between the death of Mr. Davis 
and the election of Mr. Quincy. 

In 1851, Benjamin Seaver, having already been elected an 
Alderman of the city for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for 
said year. 

At the commencement of the ensuing municipal year, 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of Mayor. 

The election of Mayor for 1854 was continued through three 



216 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

ballotings, from December 12, 1853, to January 9, 1854. In 
the mean time, the duties of Mayor were performed by Benjamin 
L. Allen, Chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

ALDERMEN. 

Nathaniel P. Russell, Daniel Baxter, Joseph H. Dorr, re-elect- 
ed ; and Thomas B. Wales and Bedford Webster, elected 1825, 
declined. 

George Blake, re-elected for 1826, declined. 

John Stevens, elected, for 1832, died prior to the organiza- 
tion. 

James Savage, elected for 1834, declined. 

In 1845, William Parker resigned. 

In 1848, George E. Head resigned, and was afterwards chosen 
one of the principal Assessors. 

In 1853, Lyman Perry, Esq., who had been duly elected an 
Alderman, died before his qualification. 

In 1856, Levi B. Meriam, Esq. died while in office. 

In 1858, Bufus B. Bradford resigned, and was afterwards 
appointed Measurer of Grain. 

In 1859, Timothy A. Sumner, Esq. resigned on account of 
illness, and soon afterwards died. 

At the municipal election in 1852, nine Aldermen had a ma- 
jority of ballots ; but in accordance with the statute, the eight 
who had the highest number of votes were declared elected. 

The Municipal Government for 1855 was the first one that was 
organized under the new or revised City Charter, which provided 
for the annual election of twelve Aldermen. 

For reports of contested seats in the Board of Aldermen, see 
City Document No. 7, for 1861, and City Document No. 16, for 
1862. 

COMMON COUNCIL. 

William Bowes Bradford, Ward 3, elected 1822, did not qual- 
ify himself, declining to be sworn, there being then no provision 
for affirmation, except for Quakers. 



CITY GOVERNMENT. 217 

Lucius Manlius Sargent, Ward 6, elected for 1827, declined. 

Henry D. Gray and Isaac Harris, Ward 1 ; Eleazer Howard, 
Ward 2, and Joseph H. Thayer, Ward 9, elected for 1828 ; also, 
Holmes Hinckley, Ward 11, for 1845, declined prior to the 
organization. 

Samuel Thaxter, Ward 6, elected for 1830, declined. 

William Foster, Ward 6, elected for 1831, declined. 

John Boles, Ward 3, re-elected for 1838, declined. 

The Junior of George Morey omitted 1829. 

Asa Adams, Ward 3, took the intermediate name of Perry, 
1830. 

The Junior of Joshua Seaver, Ward 6, omitted 1833. . 

The Junior of Henry Fowle, Ward 2, omitted 1837. 

The Junior of Francis Brinley, Ward 10, omitted 1838. 

The Junior of Ezra Lincoln omitted 1851. 

Ezra Forristall, Ward 6, resigned in May, 1853, and was 
elected Superintendent of Health. 

Daniel J. Coburn, Ward 5, resigned in April, 1855, and was 
thereafter appointed Chief of Police. 

There have been seven successfully contested elections. 

The Ffirst, ebruary 22, 1830, vacated the seat of a member 
from Ward 6, on the ground that " closing the poll before the 
hour at which the voters were notified it would be closed, was a 
violation of the rights of the voters." 

The second, May 7, 1835, vacated the seats of the members of 
Ward 3, who were returned as having been elected at an adjourned 
meeting, December 11, 1834, on the ground of irregular proceed- 
ing, to render the whole number of votes certain by taking the 
highest number of votes for candidates on each opposing ticket ; 
adjournment of the meeting by the sole authority of the Warden, 
and other irregularities, at the annual election, December 8. 

The third case, March 7, 1839, vacated the seats of three 
members of Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal 
voters, sufficient to affect the choice, voted at the polls. 

The fourth, February 9, 1843, vacated the seats of three mem- 
bers from Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned meeting, 

28 



218 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

December 14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident can- 
didates (after having been first thrown out by the ward officers ) 
were counted at the annual election, December 12, thereby pre- 
venting the choice of two other candidates, who, by excluding the 
said four votes, were by the decision of the Council declared 
elected, leaving one vacancy. 

The fifth, February 27, 1851, vacated the seats of two mem- 
bers from Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an 
adjourned meeting, which was illegally held. At the subsequent 
trial the same members were again returned to the Common 
Council. 

The sixth, January 20, 1853, vacated the seats of three mem- 
bers from Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an 
adjourned meeting which was illegally held. 

The seventh, in accordance with the Report of the Committee on 
Elections, vacated the seats of three members from Ward 11, on 
the ground that the Mayor and Aldermen had no right to issue 
warrants for election of members of the Common Council, after 
the annual election, and before the organization of the Govern- 
ment elect. But inasmuch as the elections in question were con- 
ducted bona fide and no other informality was apparent, and as 
this custom of supplementary elections had been in vogue for 
twenty years, the members thus elected were by the votes of the 
Common Council declared entitled to their seats. The passage 
of the Plurality Law of 1854 will -remedy most of these cases for 
the future. 

* This fact was admitted, though not stated in the Report of the Committee.
