100 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

An accurate account is kept of the time of giving each alarm, 
and of the District and Station from which it originates, and all 
other necessary information. 

The City is divided into eight 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 Station, 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. Wait at the Box, and direct the firemen 
to the fire. 

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 except in cases of fire. 

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

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 pur- 
chase a suitable site for the erection of a building which should 



116 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

be fully adapted for the purpose of the Library, including Mr. 
Bates' donation. 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 appro- 
priate ceremonies, on January 1, 1858. 

Besides the above-mentioned donations in money, the sum of 
ten thousand dollars was subsequently given by Hon. Jonathan 
Phillips, who, by his will, bequeathed an additional sum of

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 eight 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 Chair- 
man 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 IMayor, which resignation, how- 
ever, 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., Avas elect- 
ed Mayor by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. 

Benson Leavitt, one of the Board of Aldermen, acted as 
Chairman of the Board in the interval between the death of 
Mr. Davis and the election of Mr. Quinc}^. 

In 1851, Benjamin Seaver, having already been elected an 
Alderman of the cit}^ for 1852, Avas afterwards chosen ]Mayor 
for said year. 



174 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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

ALDERMEN. 

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

George Blake, re-elected for 1826, declined. 

John Stevens, elected for 1832, died prior to the organization. 

James Savage, elected for 1834, declined. 

In 1845, WilHam 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, Rufus B. Bradford resigned, and was afterwards 
appointed Measurer of Grain. 

In 1859, Timothy A. Sumner, I^sq., 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.

City Document No. 7, for 1861, and City Document No. 16,

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 ;

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

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

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. Coburh, Ward 5, resigned in April, 1855, and

a Principal Assessor. 

Charles J. McCarthy, Ward 7, resigned in March, 1862, 
and w^as appointed Paymaster of Eelief Funds to Families of 
Soldiers in the United States service from Boston. 

There have been nine successfully contested elections. 

The first, February 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 



176 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

of Ward 3, who were returned as having been elected at an 
adjourned meeting, December 11, 1834, on the ground of 
UTCgular proceeding, 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 
member 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 
members from Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned 
meeting, December 14, on the ground that four votes for non- 
resident candidates (after having been first thrown out by the 
ward officers*) were counted at the annual election, December 
12, thereby preventing 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 
members 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 Covimittee 
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 
Government elect. But inasmuch as the elections in question 
were conducted bona fide and no other formality was apparent, 

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



CITY GOVERNMENT. 177 

and as this custom of suppleinentfiry elections liad been in 
vogue for twenty years, the members thus elected were by the 
votes of the Common Council declared entitled to their seats. 

The eighth, March 19, 1863, in accordance with the report 
of the Committee on Elections, vacated the seat of a member 
from Ward 3, on the ground that at the time of his election he 
was not an inhabitant of that ward. Before a decision was 
reached on this point the member in Cj^uestion resigned. 

The ninth, April 9, 1863, vacated the seats of the entire 

delegation from Ward 10, on the ground that more votes were 

returned than there were persons who voted in that ward at the 

municipal election, — occasioned by mistake, probably, in the 

counting of the ballots, — the variation being so great as to 

aftect the election of the whole delegation. At the subsequent 

trial the same members were again returned to the Common 

Council.
