PEELIMINAEY NOTE. 



The establishment of the town of Boston dates 
from the passage of the order of the Court of 
Assistants on the 17th September (7th, O. S.), 
1630, " that Trimountain Shall be called Boston." 
The first city government was organized on the 
1st of May, 1822 (St. 1821, c. 110). Eoxbury 
was first recognized by the Court of Assistants 
as a town on the 8th Oct., 1630. It was incor- 
porated as a city on the 12th March, 1816 (St. 1846, 
c. 95), and annexed to Boston (^. e., act accepted 
by the qualified voters of the two cities) 9th Sept., 
1867 (St. 1867, c. 359) . Dorchester was named 
by the Court of Assistants in the same order in 
which Boston was named ; and it retained its 
town organization until annexed to Boston on 
the 22d June, 1869 (St. 1869, c. 319). Charles- 
town was founded 4th July, 1629 ; incorporated 
as a city in 1847 (St. 1847, c. 29) ; annexed to 
Boston, 7th Oct., 1873 (St. 1873, c. 286). West 
Roxbury was incorporated as a town on the 24th 
March, 1851 (St. 1851, c. 250) ; annexed to Bos- 
ton on the 7th Oct., 1873 (St. 1873, c. 314). 
Brighton was incorporated as a town in 1806 (St. 
1806, c. 65) ; annexed to Boston on the 7th of 
Oct., 1873 (St. 1873, c. 303).

' The first act of the legislature of Massacliusetts establishing the city 
of Boston Aras passed February 23, 1822, and adopted by the citizens of 
Boston March 4, 1822. It is chapter 110 of the- acts of 1821. The 
present city charter, being a revision of the former one, was passed 
April 29, 1854, and adopted by the citizens November 13, 1854. It is 
chapter 448 of the acts of 1854. Since then the powers and duties of 
the city government have been altered or enlarged in many respects by 
genei'al and special legislation ; but as the extent of the changes cannot 
in some cases be clearly defined, the act of 1854 is here given in its 
original form, and the amendments or modifications which have been 
made, either directly or indirectly, by subsequent legislation are indi- 
cated in the foot-notes.

^The Gen. Sts., c. 8, § 5 (revision of 1860), provided that no new 
division of wards should be made in tlie city of Boston previous to tlie 
appointment of senators and representatives in the year 1865. St. 1865, 
c. 7, provided that the cities of the commonwealth should in that year 
and in every tenth year thereafter make a new division of their wards. 
A new division of the wards in Boston was accordingly made in 1865, in 
the manner provided in § 3 of the charter. Under the authority of St. 
1875, c. 243, the city was divided, in 1875, into twenty-four wards. By 
St. 1876, c. 242, Ward 22 was divided into two wards, one being num- 
bered twenty-Jive ; and said two wards were authorized to elect alter- 
nately one and two members of the common council. 

2 By St. 1872, c. 140 (accepted by the city council 7th June, 1872), 
and by St. 1874, c. 376, § 53, tlie municipal election is now held on the

BRIDGES.

The several bridges within the limits of the city, whether 
constructed over navigable streams or railroads, are under

mediately to the care and inspection of the City Engineer, 
who is required to examine and report annually upon their 
conditions and requirements. [See City Doc. No. 15 for 
1877.] 

The bridges over navigable streams are placed in the care 
of superintendents, who are elected annually by the City 
Council, or Board of Aldermen. The superintendents 
attend to the opening and closing of the draws, the removal

Operators, Cyrus A. George, Granville S. Mendell, Charles 

M. Chaplin, Uzziel Putnam. 
Repairei's, George S. Thorn, Adam McAfee, Wm. H. God- 
frey. [The above are appointed by the Board of Fire 

Commissioners . ] 

A constant watch is kept at the oiBce, City Hall, night 
and day, by the operators. Each operator serves two alter- 
nate terms, of three hours each, as principal, and the same 
as assistant operator ; so that twelve hours' service at the 
office, out of every twenty-four, is required from each opera- 
tor. No operator is permitted to sleep during his watch, 
unless expressly relieved by some one else, 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 uiformation. 

Alarms are transmitted to the Central Office, from the 
Signal Stations or Boxes, hj pulling a slide in the box. 
The police officers, and one other person resident near each 
station, 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 /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 /oi^r, another 
pause, then strike ^ve, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows. Third 



,122 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Alarms are souuded 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 and Ladder Companies onli/ are 
wanted, signal to be given by striking ten blows once, with 
the number 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. 

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

DIRECTIONS TO BE OBSERVED IN CASE OF FIRE. 

Get the key to the nearest box to the fire. 

Open the box — pull the hook all the way down once, and 
let go. 

Wait one full minute for the sound of the bells. 

If you hear no sound, pull again, and the third time if 
you get no sound. 

If you fail the third time, go to the next nearest box and 
do the same there, — but do not touch any other box if the 
nearest one gives the alarm. 

After giving the alarm, remain awhile if possible by the 
box, so as to direct the firemen to the fire. 

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

No person will give alarms for the same fire (after the 
first alarm has been given) , without an order from an Engi- 



FIKE DEPARTMENT. 123 

neer ; 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. If, however, a fire breaks 
out while another is burning in a different section of the city, 
a second alarm can be given by a police officer without 
waiting: for an order from an Engineer. 



CAUTION TO PERSONS HOLDING SIGNAL KEYS. 

1. Never open the box or touch the apparatus, except in 
case of fire. 

2. Never sound the alarm for fire seen at a distance. 

3. Be reasonably sure there is a fire before sounding the 
alarm. 

4. Be sure your box is locked before leaving it. 

5. Never let the key go out of your possession, except 
to some responsible person, to give an alarm of fire, and be 
sure the key is returned. 

6. If you remove from your house or place of business 
return the key to the Fire Alarm Office without delay.

CITY HOSPITAL. 

[Ord. p. 430.] 

The City Hospital is situated on Harrison avenue, between 
Springfield and Concord streets, and was commenced in 
1861, 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 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, 1849, gave prop- 
erty to the city, valued at $25,000, for the establishment of 
a Free City Hospital in Ward Eleven or Twelve. 



142 MinsricrPAL register. 

Anothier 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 
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 may be 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 Super- 
intendent.

150 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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. Vattemare. 

In 1847 a Joint Committee of the City Council on a Library 
was first appointed. The Hon. Josiah Quincy, 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 Athenaeum 
Library bad been unsuccessfully made. 

Ill 1849 the Hon. K. 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, August 5, 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- 
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 ot" 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 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 151 

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 Eoom, and the Bindery, with 
rooms for the Barton and Prince Libraries. At the same 
time the Bates Hull was redecorated. In 1876 an exterior 
gallery was built between the rear towers. 

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 tiuenty 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- 
lin Club, at its dissolution, gave one thousand dollars. The 
late George Ticknor bequeathed four 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. 



152 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Very valuable donations of hooks have been made by the 
late Joshua Bates (in addition to his gift of money) , the 
Patent Commissioners of Great Britain, the late Rev. 
Theodoee Parker, the heirs of the Hon. Nathaniel Bow- 
ditch, the late George Ticknoe, Hon. Hjenry L. Pierce, 
the late Benjamin P. Hunt of Philadelphia, and others. 
J. Ingersoll Bowditch has made provisions for adding to 
the Bowditch Library. 

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 rich 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 engravings, autographs, etc., was purchased in 1873, 
numbering about 12,000 volumes.

Bates Hall. 

Persons admitted to use the Libraries. 

I. Inhabitants. — Any person over 14 years old may use 
books and periodicals in the buildings without previous regis- 
tration ; but to draw books for home use application for a 
card must be made in due form to the Registration Clerks at 
the Central Library, at the Branches, or at the Deliveries. 

II. J^on-residents. — All can use books and periodicals in 
the buildings ; but the following can also apply to the Regis- 
tration Clerks, as above, for cards to draw books for home 
use : — clergymen and teachers having regular professional 
occupation in the city, and members of the following insti- 
tutions, whose governments have guaranteed the Library 



154 MUNICIPAL KEGISTER. 

against damage from such members ; Boston Society of 
Architects ; Boston Society of Civil Engineers ; the Law, 
Theological, Medical, Liberal Arts and Oratory departments 
of the Boston University ; the Medical and Dental Schools of 
Harvard University ; the Massachusetts Normal Art School ;

III. -Special Privileges. — Cards entitling the holder to 
draw more volumes, and to retain them longer than usual, 
are granted to professional authors, teachers, etc., whether 
resident or not, if the applicant in the blank provided gives 
the reasons for which it is customary to extend such privi- 
leges. Such cards are not given for general reading, hid only 
for special studies, and last only for one year, and it is not 
expected that they will be used to draw 7iew and popular 
books. 

Central Library books may be applied for at the several 
Branches. 

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 
Mesridian street) was opened to the public in November, 
1870, and was formally dedicated by appropriate services on 
March 22, 1871. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 155 



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 froQi the Central Library, or procured by purchase. 
Li 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 are in the Savings Bank Building, 
corner of Broadway and E street. 

ROXBURY BRANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, the Eev. 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 
Athenseum, by which that institution is united with the 
Branch Library. The agreement (to be found in the Report 
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 $3,000 a year, while 
the city maintains a popular Library in connection therewith, 
to be of the character of the Lower Hall of the Central 
Librar}^ and of the other Branches. The building on the 



156 MUIS^ICIPAL REGISTER. 

corner of Millmont street and Lambert avenue was com- 
pleted, 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 Athengeum 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. 

WEST ROXBUEY BRANCH. 

This Library, which has heretofore been a delivery Branch 
of the Roxbury Library, has this year been established by the 
Trustees as an independent Branch of the General Library, 
and the sum of $10,000 has been appropriated by the City 
Council for this purpose. This Library has excellent accom- 
modations in Curtis Hall. 

CHARLESTOWN BRANCH. 

The Public Library of Charlestown, which was established 
in 1862, 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 



LICEH^SES. 157 

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. 

DORCHESTER BRANCH. 

This Branch has rooms in the new City Building at Field's 
Corner, where it was opened in January, 1875, after dedica- 
tory services had been held earlier in the same month. A 
Delivery of the Branch has been established at the Lower 
Mills, and books are asked for and received there daily. 

SOUTH-END BRANCH. 

The Mercantile Library Association having given to the 
city its valuable collection of books, now contained in their 
Club Room, at the corner of Pembroke and Tremont streets, 
a Branch for the reception and delivery of books from the 
General Library has been established in that place, for 
which accommodation the city pays said association as rent 
the sum of $1,000 per annum for a term of three years.

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

280 MTJSriCIPAL REGISTER. 

ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on tlie twentj^-first 
of Februar}'', Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the mean time, from January to Februarj' 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 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 Ma3-or who has died in office 
since the organization of the cit}' government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quincy, Jr., was elected 
Ma^'or by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. Ben- 
son 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 Alder- 
man of the city for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for said 
year. At the commencement of the ensuing municipal jesiv, 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 Benjamin L. 
Allen, Chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

At the municipal election, in 1872, William Gaston was certified, 
by the rehirns of the officers of the several wards, to have been 
elected Mayor of the cit}^ for the next municipal term. But upon 
charges of alleged fraudulent practices in one of the wards of the 
cit}^, 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 dul^^ elected Mayor for the j^ear 1873. 

In 1873 Henry L. Pierce, Mayor 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 Maj'or for the remainder of the municipal year 
were performed b}' Leonard R. Cutter, Chairman of the Board of 
Aldermen, who signed all official papers as " Acting Mayor."

Thomas J. Fitzpatrick, of Ward 13, died in office, March, 1876. 

There have been eighteen successfull}' 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 bj' taking the 
highest number of votes for candidates on each opposing ticket ; 
adjournment of the meeting b}' 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- 
bers of Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters, 
sufficient to aflfect the choice, voted at the polls. 



COMMON coimoiL. 283 

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 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 illegal^ 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 j'^ears, 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, probablj'', 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. 

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



284 MU]!5^ICIPAL REGISTEE. 

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 hy 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 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 b}^ the voters. 
After a protracted inquirj^ 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.] 

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 seventh, 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. 

The eighteenth, January 4, 1877, vacated the seat of a member 
from Ward 20, because, by the count of the original ballots cast in 
said ward, it appeared that another person was elected.
