S. Mendell, Charles M. Chaplin. 
Repairers, George S. Thorn, Adam McAfee, Uzziel Putnam, 

Wm, H. Godfrey. t Benjamin F. Bnrchsted, General 

Assistant. 

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 i£ 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. 

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 



TIKE DEPARTMENT. 109 

No. 41 (Old South Church), the bells will strike four, 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 tire 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. 

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 only 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 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. 



110 MUNICIPAL KEGISTER. 

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. 

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.

HOME FOR THE POOR. 

The necessity of a separation of the paupers who are re-

with the criminal classes, haviug been determined by the City 
Council, a tract of land containing about fifty acres, being a 
portion of the Austin Farm, so called, in West Roxbury, 
was purchased by the city under an order passed December 
20, 1873, as a site for a building to be devoted to a " Home 
for the Poor." Plans and estimates for the construction of 
the edifice have been prepared by N. J. Bradlee, Architect, 
which call for the appropriation of $551,188 for that object ; 
but no action has been taken thereon by the City Council at 
this date.

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 
structure. 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 
accommodations and medical treatment to others Avho 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, 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 
Jonas Ball, the interest of which is expended annually in 
furnishing clothing to indigent patients when leaving the 
Hospital. 

In 1874, George Goodnow gave to the city the sum of 
$1,000, the interest of which is to be expended by the Trus- 
tees in the purchase of books and pamphlets for the use of 
the patients. 

In 1875 a bequest was received from Mary Louisa Shaw 
of $2,000, the interest of which is to be expended by the 
Trustees for the purchase of fruits and flowers for the 
patients. 

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

Whenever able, the patient should apply in person. When 



PUBLIC CHARITABLE INSTITUTIONS. 129 

not able to appear in person, application may be made by a 
friend, and the patient will be visited by some physician 
designated by the Trustees. 

Persons accidentally wounded, or otherwise disabled or 
injured, shall be received at all hours. 

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

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.

From 1841 to 1847, various preliminary movements were 
made towards a City Library. In 1843 and 1847 books 
(some of considerable value) were received by the city, 
from the City of Paris, through M. Vattemake. 

In 1847 a Joint Committee of the City Council on a Library 
was first appointed. The Hon. Josiah QuiNcr, Jr., while 
Mayor, offered to give $5,000 for a Public Library, on 
condition that the citizens should add $10,000. The offer 
was not met. 

On the 12th of March, 1848, an act of the State Legisla- 
ture authorized the City of Boston to establish and maintain a 
Public Library, and it was accepted by the city April 3d. 
Meanwhile efforts to procure a union with the Atheneeum 
Library had been unsuccessfully made. 

In 1849 the Hon. R. C. Winthrop, J. D. W. Williams, 
Esq., Hon. S. A. Eliot, Dr. J. Mason Warren, Dr. J. B. 
McMahon, and Ezra Weston, Esq., presented books for a 
library. 

In 1850, Augusts, the Hon. John P. Bigelow, while Mayor, 
presented $1,000, which was funded, and two days later 
the Hon. Edward Everett presented his set of Public Doc- 



136 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

uments and State Papers of the United States, with other 
works, numbering upwards of 1,000 vols. 

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' donation. Accordingly, 
said committee purchased 23,380 feet of land 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. 

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 were made in the build- 
ing, thereby increasing its capacity by nearly one hundred 
and fifty thousand volumes. In 1874-5, an addition was 
erected, in the rear, giving increased accommodations for the 
official quarters, for the Patent Room, and the bindery, with 
rooms for the Barton and Prince Libraries. At the same 
time the Bates Hall was redecorated. 

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 four thousand dollars 
of a sum to be appropriated at their discretion. The Frank- 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 137 

lin Club, at its dissolution, gave one thousand dollars. The 
late George Ticknor bequcathedybwr thousand dollars. The 
Hon. Henry L. Pierce, Mayor of the city in 1873, on retiring 
from the office, gave his salary for the year, five 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 
directions 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 books 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. 

The rich antiquarian library collected by the Rev. Thomas 
Prince, during the first half of the last century, was placed 
in 1866, in the custody of the library, by the deacons of the 
Old South Church. 

By the munificence of Thomas G. Appleton, Esq., of 
Boston, the very rieh and valuable collection of engravings 
formerly belonging to Cardinal Tosti, of Rome, now de- 
ceased, was purchased and presented to the Public Library 
in 1869. The collection contains nearly eight thousand 
prints, six hundred of which are framed. 

The very valuable general and Shakespearian library of the 
late Thomas P. Barton, of New York, together with his en- 
gravings, autographs, etc., was purchased in 1873, number- 
ing about 12,000 volumes.

EAST BOSTON BRANCH. 

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. 

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. 



140 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 was ready 
for use, and this Branch was opened on May 1st, 1872. The 
rooms for the Branch have been hired in the new Saving 
Bank Building on the corner of Broadway and E street. 

ROXBURY BRANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, the Rev. 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. As it was deemed for the in- 
terest 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 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, 
signed an indenture with the Trustees of the Fellowes 
Athenaeum, by which that institution is united with the 
Branch Library. The agreement (to be found in the Heport 
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 Fund, now yielding about $2,500 a year, 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 other Branches. The building on the 
corner of Millmont street and Lambert avenue was com- 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 141 

pletcd, and the library opened, in the summer of 1873. 
The Trustees of the Fellowes Athenaeum contributed $3,000 
towards supplying the books with which it was opened. The 
present Trustees of the Fellowes Athenaeum are George Put- 
nam, D. D., President; Nathaniel J. Bradlee ; Samuel C. 
Cobb ; W. C. Collar ; Charles K. Dillaway ; Rev. Edward E. 
Hale; Joseph S. Ropes; William Whiting, senior; John 
F. Osgood, Secretary; Supply C. Thwing, Treasurer. 

The entire control of the joint collections, and the govern- 
ment of the Branch is vested by the contract in the Trustees 
of the Public Library. 

CHARLESTOWN BRANCH. 

The Public Library of Charlestown, which was established 
in 1802, became, on the 5th of January, 1874, through the 
annexation of that city, the Charlestown Branch of the Pub- 
lic Library of the City of Boston. It occupies the second 
story of the former City Hall in Charlestown. 

BRIGHTON BRANCH. 

The Holton Library, owned and maintained by the town 
of Brighton, and established in 1864, became, on the 5th of 
January, 1874, the Brighton Branch of the Public Library 
of the City of Boston. In August, 1874, the new library 
building, begun by the town of Brighton, was completed, 
and the library was transferred to it the same month ; and 
services of dedication took place in October. 

*

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 several 

271 



272 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 Maj'or. 

On the sixth of October, Thomas A. Davis, being in declining 
health, resigned the office of Ma}'or, which resignation, however, 
was not accepted by the City Council ; and, on the twenty-second 
of November, he died, being the first Mayor Avho 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. Ben- 
son Leavitt, one of the Board of Aldermen, aeted 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 Alder- 
man 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 Major 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 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 Mayor 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 plurality, he was declared duly elected Mayor for the year 1873. 

In 1873 Henry L. Pierce, Maj'or of the city, was elected a mem- 
ber of the 43d Congress from the Third Massachusetts District, in 
place of William Whiting, deceased. Mr. Pierce resigned his office 
as Mayor on November 29, and occupied his seat in Congress on 
Dec. 1, 1873. 

The duties of the Mayor for the remainder of the municipal year 
were performed by Leonard P. Cutter, Chairman of the Board of 
Aldermen, who signed all official papers as "Acting Mayor." 



ALDERMEN — COMMON COUNCIL. 273

ness, 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 twleve Aldermen.

City Document No. 7, for 1861, and City Document No. 16, for 
1862.

Thomas H. Doherty, of Ward 2, died in office August, 1873. 

William B. Barnes, of Ward 11, died in office September, 1874, 
and Asa H. Caton was elected to fill the vacancy. 

There have been seventeen 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 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 mem- 



COMMON" COUNCIL. 275 

bers of Ward 12, on the ground that a, number of illegal voters, 
sufficient to effect 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)* 
were counted at the annual election, December 12, thereby pre- 
venting the choice of two other candidates, who, by excluding the 
said four votes, were by the decision of the Council declared 
elected, leaving one vacancj'. 

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 mem- 
bers of Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an ad- 
journed 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 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 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 delega- 
tion 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 effect the election of 

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



276 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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. No. 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 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, Frederick 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 b} r 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 duty qualified onFebruaiy 1, 1872. [See 
City Doc. No. 18.] 

The sixteenth, January 8, 1874, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, because, by the count of the original bal- 
lots cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The seventeenth, January 14, 1875, vacated the seat of a mem- 
ber from Ward 1 , because by the count of the original ballots cast 
in said ward, it appeared that another person was elected.
