PEELIMINARY 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, 1846 (St. 1846, 
c. 95), and annexed to Boston (i. 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. 349). Charlestown 
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 Eoxbury 
was incorporated as a town on the 24th March, 
1851 (St. 1851, c. 250) ; annexed to Boston 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).

1 The first act of the legislature of Massachusetts establishing the city 
of Boston was 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 
general 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.

include an equal number of voters in each ward, 
as nearly as conveniently may be, consistently 
with well-defined limits to each ward; and, until 
such division be made, the boundary lines of the 
wards shall remain as now established. 2 ] 

Sect. 4. The annual meeting 1 of citizens, for Aimual 

meeting for 

the election of municipal officers hereinafter men- ^ e election 

f f city ofli- 

tioned, shall be held on the second Monday 3 of m«. 

1 By St. 1875, c. 243, the number was increased to seventy-two. 

2 The Gen. Sts., c. 8, § 5 (revision of 1860), provided that no new 
division of wards should be made in the city of Boston previous to the 
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-five ; and said two wards were authorized to elect alter- 
nately one and two members of the common council. 

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

follows : — 

"Sect. 3. At the municipal election next succeeding such division,

BRIDGES. 

[Ord. p. 82.] 

The several bridges within the limits of the city, whether 
constructed over navigable streams or railroads, are under 
the control of the Board of Aldermeu, and are subject im- 
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. 20 for 
1878.] 

The bridges over navigable streams are placed in the care 
of superiutendents, 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 
of snow and ice from the foot-paths, and the prevention of

such compensation as the City Council from time to time 
determine.

The Hon. Samuel C. Cobb, Mayor of the city iu 1874, 
having brought to the attention of the City Council of that 
year the subject of providing at the present time a large

by the City Council, on Feb. 17, 1874, to refer the whole 
matter to a Special Commission, composed as follows : — 

The Mayor, ex officio, two members of the Board of Al- 
dermen, and three members of the Common Council to be 
elected by concurrent vote, and three persons at large to be 
selected by the Mayor. The Commission was constituted as

James Power. Common Council, George A. Shaw, James 
J. Flynn, H. J. Boardman. At Large, Richard Froth- 
ingham, Edward H. Clarke, William Gray, Jr. 

This Commission reported in Dec, 1874, that a park be 
established on the Back Bay lands, and be connected with a 
series of parks in the suburbs ; and that authority be asked 
of the Legislature to grant the power to take such lands as 
may be necessary therefor. [See City Doc. 105, of 1874.] 

Such power was granted by the Legislature, May 6, 1875 
(chap. 185), subject to acceptance by the people. This act 
was accepted by a vote of the citizens, June 9, 1875. Yeas, 
3,706; Nays, 2,311.

One Commissioner is appointed annually before the first 
day of May for three years, and the Commissioners serve 
without compensation. 

The second report of the Commissioners (City, Doc. No. 
42, of 1876) recommended the establishment of parks and 
park-ways in this city, comprising in the whole 1,133 acres, 
at an estimate cost of $4,962,000. 

By vote of the City Council passed July 23, 1877, the 
City Council appropriated the sum of $450,000 for the pur- 
chase of not less than 100 acres of land and flats in Back Bay, 
so called, as described in the sixth Report of the Park Com- 
missioners (Doc. 104 of 1877) ; and by another vote, passed 
Feb. 26, 1878, authority was given to said Commissioners 
to purchase, for $16,000, 2| additional acres and such other 
parcels as would secure proper entrances to the park from 
the surrounding highways. 

On Feb. 12, 1878, an appropriation of $25,000 was made 
to meet the expense of grading said park, which work is 
now in progress. 



FERRIES. 

[Ord. p. 293.] 

By chapter 155 of the Acts of the year 1869 the City 
Council of Boston were authorized to purchase the property 
and franchise of the East Boston Ferry Company. Accord- 
ingly, after a long period of negotiation, the terms of the 
purchase were agreed upon, and, on December 17, 1869, the 
city voted to purchase the ferry property and franchise for 
the sum of $250,000 ; and the property was delivered to the 
city on April 1, 1870. (See City Doc. No. 115 of 1869. ) l 

1 By a vote of the City Council, passed July 30, 1877, it was determined that the fer- 
ries should be run free of all tolls on and after January 1, 1878. At the request of 
some citizens a mandamus was issued by the Sup. Jud. Court for the city to show cause 
why an injunction should not issue to prevent the execution of said order. After a 
hearing of the case the Court decided that the city had no authority to pass the order 
of July 30, 1877.

122 MUNICIPAL EEGISTEE. 

FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 

John F. Kennard, Superintendent. Salary $2,300, and the 

use of a horse and vehicle. Office, City Hall. He has 

also the care and charge of all the public Bells and Clocks. 

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

M. Chaplin, Uzziel Putnam. 
Repairers, 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 office, 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 mistake 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 
Signal Stations or Boxes, by pulling a slide in the box. 
The police officers and one other person resident near each 
station 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 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. 



FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 123 

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 Jive, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows followed 
by box number. 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. 

Return Signal. — Notice will be given on the bells and 
gongs by striking one blow four times, thus : 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 ; 
upon which the several pieces of apparatus on their way to 
the fire will return to their quarters. 

In cases where Hook and Ladder Companies only 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 a half a minute from the 
time the box is operated. 



DIRECTIONS TO BE OBSERVED IN CASE OF FIRE. 

Get the key of 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 



124 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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. 

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



142 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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. 

Another benefactor to the Hospital Avas 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 dothing 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; 



CITY HOSPITAL. 143 

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

intendent.

From 1841 to 1847 various preliminary movements were 
made towards a City Library. In 1843 and 1847 books 
of considerable value were received from the City of Paris, 
through Alexandre Vattemaue. 

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 Libraiy, 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 had been unsuccessfully made. 

In 1849 the Hon. R. C. Winthrop, J. D. W. Williams, 
Esq., the 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, then 
Mayor, presented $1,000, which was funded, and two days 
later the Hon. Edward Everett presented his set of Public 
Documents and State Papers of the United States, with 
other works, numbering upwards of 1,000 vols. 



152 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 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 trans- 
mitted to the care of the Trustees of the Public Library, 
with appropriate 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. 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 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- 
lin Club, at its dissolution, gave one thousand dollars. The 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 153 

late George Ticknor bequeathed four thousand dollars. 
The Hon. Henry L. Pierce, Mayor of the city in 1873, on 
retiring from tlie office, gave his salary for the year, five 
thousand dollars. Miss Charlotte Harris bequeathed for the 
benefit of the Charlestown Branch ten thousand dollars. 

All 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. Siiepard, 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 
Patent Commissioners of Great Britain, the late Rev. 
Theodore Parker, the heirs of the Hon. Nathaniel Bow- 
ditch, the late George Ticknor, the Hon. Henry 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, Esq., of New York, together 
with his engravings, autographs, etc., was purchased in 
1873, comprising about 12,000 volumes.

occupation in the city, and members of the following insti- 
tutions, whose governments have guaranteed the Library 
against damage from such members : Boston Society of

156 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



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 to the whole. 

This Branch Library (in the old Lyman School-house, on 
Meridian street) was opened to the public in November, 
1870, aud was 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 bought 
or withdrawn from the Central Library. 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 
of tlie Branch are in the Savings Bank Building, corner of 
Broadway and E street. 



ROXBURT BRANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, the Rev. George 
Putnam, D.D., Supply C. Thwing, Esq., William Whiting, 
Si\, and others to be joined with them, by an act of incor- 
poration, were invested with a trust, the purpose of which 
was 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 inter- 
est of all concerned that the advantages of these funds should 



TUBLIC LIBRARY. 157 

be joined with such others as may 'accrue from the provis- 
ions 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 inden- 
ture with the Trustees of the Fellowes Athenaeum, 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 Roxbury 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 pop- 
ular 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 completed, and the Library opened, in 
the summer of 1873. The Trustees of the Fellowes Athe- 
naeum contributed $3,000 towards supplying the books with 
which it was opened. The present Trustees of the Fellowes 
Athenaeum are : Charles K. Dillaway, President; Nathaniel 
J. Bradlee, Treasurer; Samuel C. Cobb; W. C. Collar; 
Rev. Edward E. Hale ; Joseph S. Ropes ; John F. Osgood ; 
Rev. John G. Brooks ; Henry W. Putnam, Secretary.

ment of the Branch, is vested by the contract in the Trustees 
of the Public Library.

of the Roxbury Library, was established by the Trustees, 
Dec. 5, 1877, 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 excel- 
lent accommodations in Curtis Hall.

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 



280 MUNICIPAL EEGISTER. 

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 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 office 
since the organization of the cit} T 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 af 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 Ma}-or for said 
year. At the commencement of the ensuing municipal year, 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of Mayor. 

The election of Mayor for 1854 was continued through three 
ballotings, from December 12, 1853, to January 9, 1854. In the 
mean time the duties of Ma} T 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 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, 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 Ma}-or on November 29, and occupied his seat in Congress on 
December 1, 1873. 

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

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 ttvelve Aldermen.

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

of the rights of the voters."

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 high- 
est number of votes for candidates on each opposing ticket, ad- 
journment 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- 
bers of Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters, 
sufficient to affect the choice, voted at the polls. 



COMMON COUNCIL. 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) 1 
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 vacanc}\ 

The fifth, Februar}' 27, 1851, vacated the seats of two members 
from "Ward 3, on the ground that the}' 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, 1§53, 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 bond 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 affect the election of 
the whole delegation. At the subsequent trial the same members 
were again returned to the Common Council. 

The tenth, January 24, 1867, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 3, who was chosen at an adjourned meeting (held on account 
of a tie- vote at the regular meeting, Dec. 10, 1866), on the ground 

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

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 re- 
turned 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 by the voters. 
After a protracted inquiry the Common Council sustained this 
view of the case, and Mr. Risteen was again returned to his former 
seat, and was again duly qualified on February 1, 1872. [See 
City Doc. No. 18.] 

The sixteenth, January 4, 1874, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, because, ~by the count of the original 
ballots 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. 

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. 

The nineteenth, January 10, 1878, vacated the seat of a member 
from Ward 20, because, by the count of the original ballots cast in 
that ward, it appeared that another person was chosen.
