A constant watch is kept at the oiSce, 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 tvvelve 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 maj^ 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. 

Alarms 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 /oi^r, make 
a pause of a few seconds, then strike one, thus 4 — 1. This 
will be repeated at intervals of about one-half minute. 

For a fire near Box No. 145 (South Boston Point), the 
bells will strike one, make a pause, then strike /bwr, another 
pause, then strike ^■^;e, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 
13 



98 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 ordy are 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 Enoineer. 

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. 

i 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.

CITY HOSPITAL. 

[Ord. p. 359.] 

The City Hospital is situated on Harrison avenue, between 
Springfield and Concord streets, and was commenced in 1851 ; 
and consists of three 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 
GooDXOW, who, by his will, dated July 12, 1849, 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 Norcross 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- 
nishino; clothino; to indis^ent 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 oclock, A.M.

drink to a patient, unless by permission of the nurse; and 
any article sent to the patients shall be left with the Superin- 
tendent.

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 \vas 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, wdiose early life was 
passed in Boston, having ofi'ered 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 buildiug 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 
buildiug, 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 Boylstou 
street, opposite the Common, upon which an edifice was 
erected, at a cost to the city, for land and building, of 
about $365,000. 

This buildiug 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 
buildiug, 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, bequeathed 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 Mary 
P. TowNSEND devoted to the library /bw thousand dollars 
of a sum to be appropriated at their discretion. The Frank- 
lin Club, at its dissolution, gave one thousand dollars. The 
late George Ticknor bequeathed ybi«r 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 sjDccial 
directious of the donors. 

The sum of one thousand dollars was given by the late 
Samuel Appleton, Esq., and the same amount by Mrs. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 121 

Sally I. K. Shepard, for the purpose of procuring books 
for the immediate use of the public. 

Very valuable donations of hooks have been made by the 
late Joshua Bates (in addition to his gift of money), the 
late Rev. 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 harmony to the whole. 



PUBLIC LIBRAEY. 123 



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. 

EOXBURY BRANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, theKev. George 
Putnam, 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 
mile of the meeting-house of the First Religious Society 
in Roxbury, 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 was deemed for the interest of all concerned 
that the advantages of these funds should be joined, with such 
others as may accrue from the provisions made by the City 



124 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Council for the benefit of the District of Eoxbury, in the 
way of a Branch of the Public Library, the Mayor, authorized 
by the City Council, signed an indenture with the Trustees 
of the Fellowes Athengeum, by which that institution is 
united with the Branch Library for _the Highlands. The 
agreement (to be found in the Eeport of the library for 1872) 
in effect gives the citizens of the Highlands 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 
maintains a popular library in connection therewith, to be of 
the character of the Lower Hall of the Central Library and of 
the branches at East and South Boston. The building on the 
corner of Millmont street and Lambert avenue will be com- 
pleted, and the library opened in the summer of 1873. 
The Trustees of the Fellowes Athenseum contribute $3,000 
towards supplying the books with wdiich it will be opened. 
The present trustees of the Fellowes Athenseum are George 
Putnam, D. D., President; Nathaniel J. Bradlee ; W. C.

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

ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twentj' -first 
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 Maj'or. 

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 ofl3ce 
since the organization of the city government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quinc}^ 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 cit}-- for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for 
said year. 

At the commencement of the ensuing municipal 3'ear, 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of Maj^or. 

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 Maj^or were performed by Benjamin L. 
Allen, chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

At the municipal election in 1872, William Gaston was certified 
by the returns of the officers of the several wards, to have been 
elected Ma^'or of the city for the next municipal term. But upon 
charges of alleged fraudulent practices in one of the wards of the 
city, a recount of all the ballots cast at said election was demanded 
and made, and it appearing therefrom that Henry L. Pierce had 
79 pluralitj', he was declared duly elected Mayor for the year 
1873. 

ALDERMEN. 

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

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 dnly elected an 
Alderman, died before his qualification. 

In 1856 Levi B. Merriam, 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 ill- 
ness, and soon afterwards died. 

At the municipal election in 1852, oiine 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 Cit}^ 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.

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. 

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 Soldiers iu 
the United States service from Boston. 

Daniel Dowd, a member from Ward 13, died in office September, 
1872. 

There have been fifteen 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 irregular proceed- 
ing, to render the whole number of votes certain by taking tl^e 
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 mem- 
bers of Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters, 
sufficient to aflfect 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, 
December 14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident can- 
didates (after having been first thrown out by the ward officers)* 

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



COMMON COUNCIL. 233 

wore counted nt the annual election, December 12, thereoy prevent- 
ing 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 subse- 
quent 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 Report 
of the Committee on Elections, vacated the seats of three members 
from Ward 11, on the ground that the Ma3^or and Aldermen bad 
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 bonajide, 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 vote 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 reurned 
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 v/hole delegation. At the subsequent trial the same mem- 
bers were again returned to the Common Council. 

The tenth, Januarj^ 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 

30

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. No. 12, for 1867.] 

The eleventh, January 16, 1868, vacated the seat of a mem- 
ber 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 member 
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. Risteen 
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. Risteen, and said Brackett was accordingly de- 
clared, by the Common Council of 1872, to be entitled to the seat. 
Subsequently Mr. Risteen contested this decision on the ground 
that his name was 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. Risteen was again returned to his for- 
mer seat, and was again duly qualified on February 1, 1872. [See 
City Doc. No. 18.]
