A constant watch is kept at the Office, Court Square, night

terms of three hours each, as principal, and the same as assist- 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 77 

ant operator ; so that twelve hours' service at the office, out 
of every twenty-four, is required from each operator. No 
operator is permitted to sleep during his watch, unless expressly 
relieved by some one else, and by consent of the Superintendent. 

Each operator is accountable to the Superintendent for 
any mistakes that may occur at the Office during his hours of 
duty. 

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

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. 

The ringing of the bells and the tapping of the Boxes, each 
denotes the number of the Station from which the alarm origi- 
nated : thus, — one blow, a pause, three blows, another pause, 
and two blows (1 — 3 — 2) indicates that the alarm came from 
Box No. 132. 

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. 

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. 

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



78 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

CAUTIONS. 

1. Be sure 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. 

There are 73 Signal Stations distributed and located in ac- 
cordance with the following plan : —

to the city valued at $ 25,000, for establishment of a Free City 
Hospital in Wards Eleven or Twelve.

Librarian. — Edward Capen. Salary, $ 1,700. [Nominated

Although the need of a public library had been for a consid- 
erable time felt and acknowledged, and a small number of 
volumes 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 



94 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

be fully adapted for the purpose of the Library, including Mr. 
Bates's donation. Accordingly, said Committee purchased 23,380 
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 
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 
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 ex- 
pended 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 Rev. Theodore Parker, the heirs of Hon. Nathaniel 
Bowditch, George Ticknor, and others. 

The Library is open every day, with the exception of Sun- 
days 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 
connected therewith are opened from 6 a. m. to 10 o'clock

age who agree to conform to the regulations of the Public 
Library.

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 Chair- 
man of the Board of Aldermen, performed the duties of Mayor. 

On the sixth of October, Thomas A. Davis, being in declin- 
ing 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 1835. 

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. Quincy. « 

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



158 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 
ballotings, from December 12, 1853, to January 9, 1854. In 
the mean time, the duties of Mayor were performed by Benja- 
min L. Allen, Chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

ALDERMEN. 

Nathaniel P. Eussell, 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 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 Kufus B. Bradford resigned, and was afterwards ap- 
pointed 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 
majority 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, 
for 1862.

COMMON COUNCIL. 

William Bowes Bradford, Ward 3, elected 1822, did not

vision for affirmation, except for Quakers.

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.

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. 

The Junior of William B. Fowle omitted in 1865. 

Ezra Forristall, Ward 6, resigned in May, 1853, and was

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

a Principal Assessor. 

Charles J. McCarthy, Ward 7, resigned in March, 1862, 
and was 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 number 
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." 



160 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 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 
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 
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 of 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 Election, 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 

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



CITY GOVERNMENT. 161 

were conducted bona fide and no other formality 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 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 question 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
