terms of three hours each, as principal, and the same as assist- 
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 Bos. 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, eax:h 
denotes the number of the Station from which the alarm origin- 
ated : 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. 

DIEECTIONS 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, slowly and steadily. 
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. 



76 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.

This Hospital is intended for the use and comfort of poor pa- 
tients, to whom medical care will be provided at the expense of 
the city; and it is also intended to provide accommodations 
and medical treatment to others who do not wish to be regarded 
as dependent on public charity. 

The Hospital was suggested many years ago by Elisha Good- 
now, who, by his will, dated July 12, 1849, gave property to the 
city, valued at $25,000, for establishment of a Free City Hos- 
pital in Wards Eleven or Twelve. 

Another benefactor to the Hospital was the late Lawrence 
Nichols, who bequeathed to the city for the use of the City 
Hospital, the sum of $1,000.

Although the need of a public library had been for a consider- 
able 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 citj, con- 
tributed 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 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 91 

Library of tlie 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 
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 Laweence. 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 L K. 
Shepard, for the purpose of procuring books for the immediate 
use of the public. 

Very valuable donations of looks have also been made by the 
late Rev. Theodore Parker, the heirs of Hon. Nathai^iel 
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 hooks for home 
use, fron 10, A. m., lo 8 o'clock, p. m. ; and the Reading Rooms

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 

21 



162 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 
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. 

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. Russell, Daniel Baxter, Joseph H. Dorr, re- 
elected ; 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 organization. 

James Savage, elected for 1834, declined. 

In 1845 William Parker resigned. 

In 1848 George B. 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, 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. 

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 
qualify himself, declining to be sworn, there being then no pro- 
vision for affirmation, except for Quakers. 

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

Henry D. Gray and Isaac Harris, Ward 1 ; Bleazer 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. 

The Junior of William B. Fowle, omitted in 1865. 

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



164 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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

Edward F. Robinson resigned in May, 1861, and was elected 
a Principal Assessor. 

Charles J. McCarthy, Ward 7, resigned in March, 1862, and 
was appointed Paymaster of Relief Funds to Families of Sol- 
diers in the United States service from Boston. 

There have been ten 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 
of Ward 3, who were returned as having been elected at an 
adjourned meeting, December 11, 1834, on the ground of irreg- 
ular 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, 1830, 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- 



*TMs fact was admitted, though not stated in the Report of the Com- 
mittee. 



CITY GOVERNMENT. 165 

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 
were conducted 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 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 dele- 
gation 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 
affect the election of the whole delegation. At the subsequent 
trial the same members were again returned to the Common 
Council. 

The tenth, January 24, 1867, vacated the seat of a member 
from Ward 3, who was chosen at an adjourned meeting (held on 
account of a tie vote at the regular meeting, Dec. 10, 1866), on 
the ground that the Polls, at said adjourned meeting, were not

kept open the same number of hours as were required by the 
original warrant. At a subsequent election the same member 
was returned to the Common Council. [See City Doc. 12, for 
1867.]
