Wm. H. Godfrey, $5 per day. Benjamin F. Burchsted, 

General Assistant, $4.50 per day. 

A constant watch is kept at the office. City Hall, night and 
day, by the operators. Each operator serves two alternate 
terms, of three hours each, as principal, and the same as as- 
sistant 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 necessary information. 

Alarms are transmitted to the Central Office, from the Sig- 
nal Stations or Boxes, by pulling a slide in the Box. The 
police officers, and one other person resident near each sta- 
tion, have keys to the Boxes. 

Alaems are sounded by striking the number of the box 
upon the Alarm Bells, and upon> the Gongs in the Engine- 
Houses. 

Examples : To announce the existence of a fire near Box 
No. 41 (Old South Church), the bells will strike ybwr, make 
a pause of a few seconds, then strike one, thus 4 — 1. This 
will be repeated at intervals of about one minute. 

For a fire near Box No. 145 (South Boston Point), the 
bells will strike one, make a pause, then strike four, another 
pause, then strike five, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 



FIEE DEPAETMENT. 99 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows. Third 
Alarms are sounded by striking twelve blows twice, thus : 
12 — 12. 

In cases where the entire department are required, alarms 
are sounded by striking twelve blows three times, thus : 12 

— 12 — 12. 

In cases where Hook & Ladder Companies ow?2/ ^^^ wanted, 
signal to be given by striking ten blows once, with the num- 
ber of the Company struck twice, thus : Hook & Ladder No. 
one, 10—1 — 1. Hook & Ladder No. four, 10 — 4 — 4. 
Hook & Ladder No. seven, 10 — 7 — 7. 

If more than one Hook & Ladder Company is wanted, the 
signal will be given thus : Hook & Ladder one and three, 10 

— 1 — 1 — 3 — 3. Hook & Ladder two and four, 10 — 2 — 2 

— 4 — 4. Hook & Ladder five and seven, 10 — 5 — 5 — 7 

— 7. 

No person will give alarms for the same fire (after the first 
alarm has been given) , without an order from an Engineer ; 
and the person so ordered will be sure to go to the same box 
from which the first alarm was given, and report the same to 
the Chief Engineer. 

Alarms are usually given about half a minute from the 
time the Box is operated. 

DIRECTIONS TO THOSE WHO HOLD SIGNAL KEYS. 

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

2. Pull the slide down once and let go. Wait at the Box, 
and direct the firemen to the fire. 

3. If you hear no reply on the bells, pull again. If still 
no reply, go to the nearest Box. 

4. The police, upon hearing the bells, will spring their 
rattles and call the number of the station. 

CAUTIONS.

CITY HOSPITAL. 

[Ord. p. 359.] 

The City Hospital is situated oa Harrison 9,venue, between 
Springfield and Concord streets, and was commenced in 1851 ; 
and consists of two pavilions connected with a central struc- 
ture. This Hospital is intended for the use and comfort of 
poor patients, to whom medical care will be provided at the 
expense of the city ; and it is also intended to provide accom- 
modations 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 
GooDNOW, who, by his will, dated July 12, 184i?, gave prop- 
erty to the city, valued at $25,000, for the establishment of a 
Free City Hospital in Ward 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. 

Hon. Otis Norceoss has given to the city a fund of $2,000, 
to which has been added a bequest of $1,000 by the late Jo- 
nas Ball, the interest of which is expended annually in fur- 
nishing clothing to indigent patients when leaving the Hos- 
pital. 

Applications for admission of patients may be made at the 
Hospital on each day of the week, Sundays excepted, be- 
tween 9 and 11 o'clock, A. M. 

Whenever able, the patient should apply in person. When 
not able to appear in person, application may be made by a 
friend, and the patient will be visited by one of the resident 
graduates, or by some physician designated by the Trustees. 

Persons accidentally wounded, or otherwise disabled or in- 
jured, shall be received at all hours. 

On each day of the week, Sundays excepted, from 2 to 3 
'clock, P. M., friends may be permitted to visit patients; 
Ihough no patient shall receive more than one visitor on the 
*same day. 



114 MUNICIPAL KEGISTEK. 

No visitor shall be allowed to give any article of food or 
drink to a patient, unless by permission of the nurse ; and 
any article sent to the patients shall be left with the Superin- 
tendent.

Miss Sarah C. Godbold, Librarian of East Boston Branch. 

Mrs. Anna C. D. Keen, Librarian of South Boston Branch. 

Although the need of a public library had been for a con- 
siderable 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 in- 
stitution, nothing definite in relation thereto was done until 
the fifth of August, 1850, when the Hon. John P. Bigelow, 
then Mayor of the city, contributed the sum of one thousand 
dollars for the purpose of establishing a Public Library. 
This donation, being the first money that was given for the 
object, was received joyfully, and funded by the City Coun- 
cil ; and the Committee on the Library were directed to 
"proceed, with as little delay as possible, to carry into efiect 
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's donation. Accordingly, 
said committee purchased 23,380 feet of laud on Boylston 
street, opposite the Common, upon which an edifice was 
erected, at a cost to the city, for land and building, of 
about $365,000. 



120 MUNICIPAL EEGISTEK. 

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. 

During 1871-2 extensive changes have been made in the 
building, thereby increasing its capacity by nearly one hun- 
dred and fifty thousand volumes. 

Besides the above-mentioned donations in money, the sum 
of ten thousand dollars was subsequently given by Hon. 
Jonathan Phillips, who, by his will hequeatlied an addi- 
tional sum of twenty thousand dollars. Another sum of ten 
thousand dollars was bequeathed "by the late Hon. Abbott 
Lawrence. The executors under the will of the late Mart 
P. TowNSEND devoted to the library four thousand dollars 
of a sum to be appropriated at their discretion. The Frank- 
lin Club, at its dissolutio'b, gave one thousand dollars. The 
late George Ticknor bequeathed four thousand dollars. 

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, in accordance with the special di- 
rections of the donors. 

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 boohs have been made by the 
late Joshua Bates (in addition to his gift of money), the 
late Eev. Theodore Parker', the heirs of the Hon. Nathan- 
iel BowDiTCH, George Ticknor, and others. 

By the munificence of Thomas G. Appleton, Esq., of 
Boston, the very rich and valuable collection of engravings, 
formerly belonging to Cardinal Tosti, of Rome, now de- 
ceased, was purchased and presented to the Public Library. 
The collection contains nearly eight thousand prints, six 
hundred of which are framed.

EAST BOSTON BRANCH LIBRARY. 

This Branch comprises two distinct collections of books, 
one begun by the East Boston Library Association in 1852, 
and merged in the Sumner Library in 1860, and presented to 
the City of Boston and made to form a portion of the East 
Boston Branch Library ; and the other of books taken from 
the Central Library, with additions by purchase, so as to 
give completeness and harmonj'' to the whole. 

This Branch Library (in the old Lyman School-house, on 
Meridian street) was opened to the public in November, 
1870, and was formally dedicated by appropriate services on 
March 22, 1871. 

SOUTH BOSTON BRANCH. 

By a vote of the Mattapan Literary Association, its Li- 
brary of about 1,500 volumes was made the nucleus of this 
Branch, and to these have been added books either with- 
drawn from the Central Library, or procured by purchase. 
In this way a collection of about 5,000 volumes were ready 
for use, and this Branch was opened on May 1st, 1872. The 
rooms for the Branch have been hired in the new Savings 

Bank Building on the corner of Broadway and E street.

ROXBURY BRANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, the Eev. George 
Putman, D. D., S. C. Thwing, Esq., William Whiting, 
senior, and others to be joined with them by an act of incor- 
poration, were invested with a trust, whose purpose is to 
establish a library, and erect a building for it, within half a 



LIOElfSES. 123 

mile of the meeting-house of the First Eeligious Society 
in Koxbury , on Eliot square. The will provides that $40,000 
shall be spent in the purchase of land and in the erection of 
the said building. The available fund now amounts to about 
$54,000, and the excess over the sum appropriated for the land 
and building, the Trustees are required to invest as a fund, 
the income of which shall be used for the purchase of books ; 
and to this will be added when the building is completed, 
a further sum of about $30,000, which will then be paid 
to them by the executors under the will of the late Mrs. Fel- 
lowes. As it has been deemed for the interest of all concerned 
that the advantages of these funds shall be joined, with such 
others as may accrue from the provisions to be made by the 
City Council for the benefit of the District of Roxbury, in the 
way of a Branch of the Public Library, the Mayor, authorized 
by the City Council, has signed an indenture with the Trustees 
of the Fellowes Athenaeum, by which that institution will 
be united with the proposed Branch Library for the Highlands. 
The aOTeement in effect orives the citizens of the Hio-hlands 
a library, the same in kind with the Bates Hall collection, 
though on a smaller scale, to be increased by the Fellowes 
funds, while the city will maintain a popular library in con- 
nection therewith, to be of the character of the Lower Hall 
of the Central Library and of the branches at East and South 
Boston.

The asterisk denotes the deceased. 

The election of Mayor for 1845 was more warmly contested 
than in any former year. There were not less than eight sev- 



222 MUNICIPAL HEGISTEE. 

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, 
William 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 declin- 
ing health, resigned the office of Mayor, which resignation, 
hoAvever, 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 gov- 
ernment in 1822. 

On the 11th 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 Januarj^ 9, 1854. In 
the mean time, the duties of Mayor were performed by Ben- 
jamin L. Allen, chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

ALDEKMEN. 

Nathaniel P. Eussell, Daniel Baxter, Joseph H. Dorr, re- 
elected ; and Thomas B. Wales, and Redford 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. 



CITY GOVERNMENT. 223 

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 Eufus 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 
fleeted. 

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, andCity 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 
provision for afiirmation, except for Quakers. 

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, de- 
clined 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. 



224 MUNICIPAL KEGISTER. 

Henry Andrews, Ward 2, elected in 1833, afterwards took 
the intermediate letter R. 

The Junior of Joshua Seaver, Ward 6, oroitted 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. 

Daniel J. Cobnrn, 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 Soldiers in the United States service from Boston. 

There have been 15 successfully contested elections. 

The first, February 22, 1830, vacated the seat of a mem- 
ber from Ward 6, on the ground that "closing the poll be- 
fore 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 mem- 
bers 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 can- 
didates on each opposing ticket ; adjournment of the meet- 
ing by the sole authority of the Warden, and other irregu- 
larities, 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 ille- 
gal 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 



CITY GOVERIS-MENT. 225 

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 
members 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, February 3, 1853, in accordance with the 
Rejport 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 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 
Keport 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 

* This fact was admitted, though not stated in the report of the committee. 



226 MUN^ICrPAL EEGISTEE. 

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 be- 
ing so great as to affect the election of the whole delegation. 
At the subsequent trial the same members were again re- 
turned to the Common Council. 

The tenth, January 24, 1867, vacated the seat of a mem- 
ber from Ward 3, who was chosen at an adjourjied 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.] 

The eleventh, January 16, 1868, vacated the seat of a 
member returned for Ward 10, because by the count of the 
original ballots cast in said Ward, it appeared that another 
person was chosen. 

The twelfth, January 6, 1870, vacated the seat of a mem- 
ber returned from Ward 13, for the same reason as recited 
above. 

The thirteenth, January 5, 1871, vacated the seat of a 
member returned from Ward 15, for the same reason. 

The fourteenth, January 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a 
member returned from Ward 7, for the same reason. 

The fifteenth occurred as follows : — 

At the annual municipal election in 1871, Frederic S. Eisteeu 
was declared elected as a member from Ward 10. This 
election was contested by J. Q. A. Brackett, and a recount 
of the original ballots showed that said Brackett was elected 
by a plurality of one ballot over F. S. Eisteen, and said 
Brackett was accordingly declared, by the Common Council 
of 1872, to be entitled to the seat. Subsequently Mr. Eis- 
teen contested this decision on the ground that his name was 



CITY GOVERNMEN^T. 227 

erased from a number of ballots by some one of the Ward 
officers after said ballots were deposited by the voters. After 
a protracted inquiry the Common Council sustained this view 
of the case, and Mr. Eisteen was again returned to his for- 
mer seat, and was again duly qualified on February 1, 1872.
