A CODIFICATION 

OF THE 

CITY CHARTER OF 1854, 

AND STATUTES AFFECTING THE SAME. 



[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. The charter herewith presented is a 
codification of the original enactment of 1854, and of the general and 
special acts since then adopted, prepared, by order of the City Council, 
by the Committee on Ordinances. The sections in pica are unchanged 
from the text of 1854. Words in italics show verbal changes. Sections

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

duty. 



122 MUNICIPAL KEGISTEK. 

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 for three rounds. 

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. 

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_^re, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows followed 
by box number. Third Alarms are sounded by striking 
ten blows three times thus : 10 — 10 — 10. 

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 fourtimes, 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 €>nly 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 — 



PIKE-AIiAKM TELEGRAPH. 123 

2 — 2 — 4 — 4. Hook and 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 fall minute for the sound of the bells. 

If 3^ou hear no sound, ^i<Z? 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. 

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 can be given by a police-officer without wait- 
ing for an order from an Eno'ineer. 

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. 

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

Central Library books may be applied for at the several

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 u 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, and 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 



PUBLIC LIBRAET. 155 

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 
the Branch are in the Savings-Bank Building, corner of 
Broadway and E street, and during the year 1878 were 
enlarged by taking the entire floor. 

ROXBURT BRANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, the Eev. George 
Putnam, D.D., Supply C. Thwing, Esq., William Whiting. 
Sr., 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 Eeligious Society 
in Koxbury, on Eliot square. As it was deemed for the inter- 
est of all concerned that the advantages of these funds should 
be joined with such others as may accrue from the provi- 
sions made by the City Council for the benefit of the District 
of Koxbury, in the way of a Branch of the Public Library, 
the Mayor, authorized by the City Council, signed an indent- 
ure 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 Koxbury 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 



156 MUNICIPAL EEGISTER. 

Athengeum are : Charles K. Dillaway, President; Nathaniel 
J. Bracllee, Treasurer; Gorham Eogers ; Wm. C. Collar; 
Eev. Edward E. Hale; Joseph S. Ropes; John F. Osgood; 
Eev. John G. Brooks ; Henry W. Putnam, Secretary. 

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 . 

JAMAICA PLAIN BRANCH. 

This Library, which has heretofore been a delivery Branch 
of the Eoxbury Library, was established by the Trustees, 
Dec. 5, 1877, as an independent Branch of the General 
Library. This Library has excellent accommodations in 
Curtis Hall. A delivery of the Branch was established at 
Eoslindale, December 3, 1878, and another at the West 
Eoxbury Delivery, Jan. 6, 1880, where books are applied for 
and received three afternoons and evenings in the week. 

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 Charlestowai. In July, 
1877, this Branch received, by the will of Miss Charlotte 
Harris, a fund of $10,000, and the testator's private library. 

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. 



MAKKET. 157 

DOECHESTEE BRANCH. 

This Branch has rooms in the new City Building at Field's 
Corner, where it was opened in January, 1875, after dedi- 
catory 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 in May, 
1877, to the city its valuable collection of books, contained 
in their Club Eoom, at the corner of Newton and Tremont 
streets, a Branch for the reception and delivery of books 
from the General Library was established in that place, the 
following August, for which accommodation the city pays said 
association as rent the sum of $1,000 per annum for a term 
.of three years. 

WEST ROXBURY DELIVERY. 

On Nov. 11, 1879, the West Eoxbury Free Library trans- 
ferred its collection of over 3,000 volumes at Westerly Hall, 
to the Public Library, and on Jan. 6, 1880, a delivery was 
established there, of books from the Jamaica Plain Branch 
and the Central Library.

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 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, acted as Chairman of 
the Board in the interval between the death of Mr. Davis and the 
election of Mr. Quinc3% 

In 1851 Benjamin Seaver, having already been elected an Alder- 
inan of the city for 1852, was afterwards chosen Maj^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 Msljov 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 Maj'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 Henrj^ 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 Mayor 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."

the highest number of votes were declared elected. 

The Municipal Government for 1855 was the first one that was 
organized under tbe new or r.evised City Charter, which provided 
for the annual election of twelve Aldermen. 

For reports of contested seats in the Board of Aldermen, see City 
Document No. 7, for 1861, and City Document No. 16, for 1862.

Joseph Healy, of Ward 10, died in office, April 18, 1880. 

There have been nineteen 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 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 u'regularities, 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 COUN^CIL. 249 

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 vacanc}'. 

The fifth, Februarj' 27, 1851, vacated the seats of two members 
from "Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an adjourned 
meeting which was illegally held. At the subsequent trial the 
same members were again returned to the Common Council. 

The sixth, January 20, 1853, vacated the seats of three members 
of Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an adjourned 
meeting which was illegall}- 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 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 

^This fact was admitted, tiiough not stated in the report of the committee. 



250 MUNICIPAL REGISTEE. 

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 from 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, Januar}^ 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 bj^ 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 b}^ 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, for 1872.] 

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.
