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, 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). 



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 tlie 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. Tlie sections in pica are unchanged 
from the text of 1854. Words in italics show verbal changes. Sections

THIRD REPORT 

OF THE 

COMMITTEE ON JOINT RULES 
AND ORDERS. 



In Board or Aldermen, August 8, 1881. 

The Joint Committee on Joint Rules and Orders beg leave 
to submit a third report at the present time, in respect to the 
operation of Joint Kule No. IQ. 

It having been decided by the President of the Common 
Council, that orders looking to the expenditure of money 
for objects not contemplated at the time the annual appro- 
priations were made, would require a statement in print of 
the expenditures already made by the committee, board, or 
officer to have charge of such new expenditure, it is evi- 
dent that Rule 16 may become an impediment to the public 
business instead of a safeguard. 

The first form of the rule, as in force until 1875, provided 
that when any committee found its regular appropriation 
was expended or was clearly insufficient, it should state the 
fact in a printed report of the expenditures already made, 
and obtain a farther supply by transfer or loan. The reason 
was evident: the annual appropriations are made by a 
majority vote only, and should be, for definite objects, 
carefully estimated by the various departments. If the 
appropriation proved too small, it would show a state of 
affairs requiring careful attention from the Council, and there- 
fore requiring, by another rule, a two-thirds vote of both 
branches assentino- to the increase. 



2 City Document No. 116. 

But, in 1875, a new clause was put in, making it necessary 
to make tliis printed report when money was wanted for a 
new purpose, perhaps even a purpose ordered by the Coun- 
cil. This part of the rule seems out of harmony with the 
rest, and a remedy must be provided in an another form. If 
a regular committee or department, having an ample appro- 
priation for its regular wants, is directed by the Council to 
take charge of a new matter, it is unnecessary and unfair to 
compel it to report in print its financial condition. 

For example, the Park Commissioners have this year an 
appropriation of $10,000 for clerks, etc. They have spent 
only $1,373.92 up to August 1st, a proper and reasonable 
amount. The Council orders them to expend a larger sum, 
say $60,000 for the Arnold Arboretum. This has nothing to 
do with their regular appropriation, and yet, under Rule 16, 
as it stands, they must submit a report of the state of their 
appropriation for office expenses. This, certainly, cannot be 
the true object of the rule, because the Council does not 
expect the Arboretum to be paid for from the appropriation 
for carrying on the Commissioners' office, and does mean to 
provide the money in another way by loan. 

Your committee, therefore, recommends that Joint Rule No. 
16 be amended in conformity with the annexed draft. By 
this change no money can be taken for a new purpose, except 
by transfer or loan, both methods under Joint Rule No. 18 
requiring the consent of two-thirds of both branches. In 
defining what expenditures can be charged to the appropria- 
tion for incidentals, your committee has put in words the 
practice of past years. 

The addition to Joint Rule No. 24 is slight but necessary, 
as it covers the reports so often made, recommending a ref- 
erence to a committee or board. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HUGH O'BRIEN, 
CLINTON VILES, 
ANDREW J: bailey, 
WILLIAM H. WHITMORE. 



Ordered, That Joint Rule No. 16 be and it is hereby 
amended to read as follows : — 

Section 16. The specific appropriation for the several 
objects enumerated in the general appropriation order shall be 
deemed and taken to be the maxium amount to be expended 
by the several committees, boards, and officers having the 
charge thereof, for the entire financial year. 



Report on Joint Rules and Orders. 3 

Whenever the amounts designated and appropriated as 
aforesaid have been expended, and an additional sum is 
required, or whenever the estimates for any purpose exceed 
the appropriation specially made therefor, the committee, 
board, or officer having charge thereof shall furnish to the 
City Council a detailed statement, in print, of the expendi- 
tures already made, and the necessity for an additional 
appropriation. 

Whenever the City Council shall order an expenditure by 
any committee, board, or officer, either in addition to the 
estimates on which the appropriation was made, or for an 
object not included in such estimates, it shall provide for the 
payment of the same. 

No expenditure shall be made from the reserved fund 
except by a transfer to some other appropriation, or to a new 
appropriation to be established. 

No expenditure shall be charged to the appropriation for 
incidentals excepting those ordered in accordance with 
chapter 165 of the Acts of 1861, jaadr-cha^i^tejr-S^^-af the- 
Aet-s-ef 1874; expenditures for one or both branches of 
the City Council, ordered by concurrent vote ; amounts 
necessary to pay judgments or to settle claims against the 
city ; and transfers. 

Ordered, That Joint Rule No. 24 be and it is hereby 
amended by inserting in the second line, before the word 
" or," the words " reference to a committee or board."

ing side shall give notice to the Clerk, within twenty- 
four hours after the adjournment of such meeting 
(except the final meeting of the year, or that preced- 
ing any adjournment for over two weeks), of his 
intention so to do, he may move a reconsideration at 
the next meeting, at which such motion shall be in 
order in the regular course of business. Debate on 
motions to reconsider shall be limited to thirty min- 
utes, and no member shall speak more than five

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 oper- 
ator. No operator is permitted to sleep during his watch,

mistake that may occur at the office during his hours of duty. 

An accurate account is kept of the time of giving each 



FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 117 

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 station 
have keys to the boxes. 

Nos. 41, 42, 43, 45, 46, and 49 have been supplied with 
the " Tooker keyless door." 

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 /bwr, 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 ybwr, another 
pause, then strike _^ve, 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 tewlve 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 & 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, 



118 MinsriCTPAL register. 

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 tninute 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. 

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, hoivever, 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 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. 



FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 119 

5. Never let the key go out of your possession, except

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 151 



EAST BOSTON BEANCH. 

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, 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 
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. 

ROXBURY BEANCH. 

Under the will of the late Caleb Fellowes, the Rev. 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 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 
be joined with such others as may accrue from the provi- 



152 MUNICIPAL KEGISTER. 

sions 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 indent- 
ure with the Trustees of the Fellowes Athenaeum, by which 
that institution is united with the Branch Lil^rary. The 
agreement (to be found in the Eeport of the Lilirary for 
1872) in eifect 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 popu- 
lar Library in connection therewith, to be of the character 
of the Lower Hall of the Central Library and of the other 
Branches. The buildino- on the corner of Millmont street and 
Lambert avenue was completed, and the Lil)rary 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, JPr'esident ; Nathaniel 
J. Bradlee, Treasurer; Gorham Rogers; Wm. C. Collar; 
Rev. Edward E. Hale ; Joseph S. Ropes ; John F. Osgood ; 
Rev, 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. 

JAIVIAICA PLAIN BRANCH. 

This Library, which has heretofore been a delivery Branch 
of the Roxbury 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 
Roslindale, Dec. 3, 1878, and another at the West Rox- 
bury Delivery, Jan. 6, 1880, where books are applied for and 
received three afternoons and evenings in the week. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 153 



CHAKLESTOWN BEANCH. 

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. 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. 

DORCHESTER 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 Koom, 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 paid said 
Association as rent the sum of $1,000 per annum for three

years. At the end of this term the Library was moved to a 
room expressly fitted up therefor in the new English High 
School Building, on Montgomery street, where it is now 
located. 

WEST KOXBUEY DELIVERY. 

On Nov. 11, 1879, the West Roxbury 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

SELECTMEN 

OP THE TOWN OF BOSTON, FROM 1634 TO 1821, INCLUSIVE. 

The dates recited below include the terms of service. 

Prior to the date when the seven Selectmen became regular offi- 
cers, similar officials had served. The earliest entiy preserved in 
the Town Records is dated Sept. 1, 1634. "We cannot, therefore, 
learn when the custom began of choosing selectmen, or townsmen. 
We find at that date, however, a board of ten citizens in office, — 
John Winthrop, "William Coddington, John Underhill, Thomas 
Oliver, Thomas Leverett, Giles Firmin, John Coggeshall, William 
Peirce, Robert Harding, and William Brenton. 

Oct. 6, 1634. — Richard Bellingham' and John Coggan were 
chosen in place of Firmin, deceased, and Harding, now in 
Virginia. 

March 1, 1636. — Chosen: Thomas Oliver, Thomas Leveritt, 
William Hutchinson, William Colburn, John Coggeshall, John 
Sanford, Richard Tuttell, William Aspinwall, William Brenton, 
William Balston, Jacob Eliot, and James Pen. 

Sept. 16, 1636. — Hutchinson, Oliver, Leverett, Colborn, 
Coggeshall, Sanford, Brenton, and Balston reelected, and two new 
men added, — Robert Keyne and John Newgate. 

March 20, 1637. — Eight reelected; Eliot and Pen returned in 
place of Keayne and Newgate, and Robert Harding added. In 
all eleven. 

Oct. 16, 1637. — Eleven chosen: ten reelected, and William 
Aspinwall in place of Brenton. 

April 23, 1638. — Seven chosen: Oliver, Leverett, Keayne, 
Colborn, Newgate, Pen, and Eliot, — all having served before. 

Nov. 5, 1638. — Seven chosen: six reelected, with Robert 
Harding in place of Newgate. 

April 29, 1639. — Nine chosen: Oliver, Leverett, Keayne, Col- 
born, Harding, and Eliot; Pen dropped; Edward Gibbons, Wil- 
liam Tyng, and John Cogan added. 

Dec. 16, 1639. — Nine chosen: Colborn, Harding, Eliot, Gib- 
bons, Tyng, and Cogan reelected ; Gov. John Winthrop, Richard 
Bellingham, and William Hibbens, new members. 



SELECTMEN. 



243 



Sept. 28, 1040. — Nine chosen for the next six montlis : Colborn, 
Eliot, Gibbons, Tyng, Winthrop, Bellingluim, and Illbbeiis, old 
members ; with John Newgate and Atherton Hough added. 

Ma}' 27, 1641. — Nine chosen: liie seven old members, with 
John Oliver and James Pen for Newgate and Hough. 

March G, 1641-42. — Nino chosen: eight reelected, and "t'^alen- 
tine Hill in place of Hibbens. 

Sept. 2, 1642. — The same nine reelected for six months. 

March 20, 1642-43. —Winthrop, Bellingham, Tyng, Gibbons, 
Colborn, Eliot, Hill, and Oliver reelected; Hibbens put in place 
of Pen. 

Sept. 25, 1613. — Same nine reelected. 

Ma}- 17, 1644, — Eight reelected, with Pen for Bellingham. 

April 10, 1645. — Eight reelected, with Edward Tyng for 
William Tyng. 

Dec. 26, 1645. —Winthrop, Hibbens, Gibbons, Colborn, Hill, 
Eliot, and Pen reelected ; Oliver and E. T3-ng dropped ; Robert 
Keayne and Thomas Fowle added. 

No election is recorded in 1646, though all but Fowle were 
serving Feb. 25, 1646-47. Probably some change had taken 
place about this time, as March 13, 1646-47, we find a board of 
seven acting, and the same seven were chosen five daj-s later at a 
" general town's meeting warned from house to house." From 
this time it seems to have been a settled custom to elect seven 
selectmen in March for the year ensuing, though occasionally this 
number was exceeded.

ballotings b}' the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twent3'-first 
of February, X^ioi^as 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 Ma3'or. 

On the sixth of October, Tliomas A. Davis, being in declining 
health, resigned the office of Maj-or, which resignation, however, 
was not accepted b}- the City Council ; and on the twent3'-second 
of November he died, being the first Mayor who has died in office 
since the organization of the cit}' government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quinc}', Jr., was elected 
Ma3'or b}' 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 cit}' for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for said 
3'ear. At the commencement of the ensuing municipal year, 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of Ma\'or. 

The election of Mayor for 1854 was continued through three 
ballotings, from December 12, 1853, to January' 9, 1854. In the 
mean time the duties of 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 tlie city 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 pluralit}', he was declared duly elected Mayor fur the year 1873. 

In 1873 Henry L. Pierce, Mayor of the ciij', w^as elected a mem- 
ber of the 43d Congress from the Third Massachusetts District, in 
place of William Wiiiting, deceased. Mr. Pierce resigned his office 
as Mayor on November 29, and occupied his seat in Congress on 
Decemlier 1, 1873. 

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



ALDERMEN. 255 



ALDERMEN. 

Nathaniel P. Rnssell, Daniel Baxter, Joseph H. Dorr, re- 
elected ; and Thomas C. Wales and Bedford Webster, elected 
1825, declined. 

George Blake, reelected for 1826, declined. 

In 1828 Robert Fennelly died while in office. 

John Stevens, elected for 1832, died prior to the organization. 

James Savage, elected for 1834, declined. 

In 1845 William Parker resigned. 

In 1848 George E. Head resigned, and was afterwards chosen 
one of the Principal Assessors. 

In 1853 L3-raan Perrj', who had been duly elected an Alderman, 
died before his qualification. 

In 1856 Levi B. Meriam died while in office. 

In 1858 Rufus B. Bradford resigned, and was afterwards ap- 
pointed Measurer of Grain. 

In 1859 Timothy A. Sumner resigned, on account of illness, and 
soon afterwards died. 

In 1878 Samuel C. Perkins died while in office. 

In 1879 Benjamin Pope died while in office. 

In 1880 George E. Bell died while in office. 

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 twelve Aldermen. 

At the municipal election, December 14, 1880, the numbers of 
the ballots returned by the precinct officers were so very close 
between the eleventh and twelfth Aldermen, who appeared to have 
been chosen, and the two or three candidates who had the next 
highest number of ballots, that a recount of the ballots for these 
persons was demanded in the form prescribed by law. Accord- 
inglj' the original ballots cast in the several precincts on the 
above date, which had been duly returned to the City Clerk, were 



256 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

counted b^^ a committee of the Board of Aldermen of 1880, ap- 
pointed for tlie examination of tlie returns of votes the da}' preced- 
ing said election. The candidates whose votes were recounted 
were Cyrus S. Haldeman, James J. FljMin, William Frost, John 
Thompson and George S. Dexter. The result of this examination 
was reported to the Board on the 27th of December, and the two 
doubtful seats were, in accordance with said report, awarded to 
Messrs. Haldeman and Flj'un. 

The results of this examination having been printed, together 
with the results as certified by the precinct officers, it was found 
difficult, upon an analysis and scrutiu}' thereof, and a comparison 
of them with the votes cast for Mayor and fcr Street Commis- 
sioner, to account for this determination. 

Accordingly, after the inauguration of the Municipal Government 
of 1881, a petition, numerously signed, was presented for a re- 
examination of the ballots cast for Aldermen, December 14, 1880, 
in order to verify- the result above reached. A contest for the seat 
of James J. Fl^'nn was also made by William Frost, who was a 
candidate for Alderman. 

A new committee was appointed upon this subject, no mem- 
ber of which had served upon the former committee ; and thej', after 
a very careful scrutiny and verification of the ballots, reported 
that William Frost was entitled to the seat held b}' James J. Flj'nn. 
There were two minoritj' reports on this subject ; but the Board of 
Aldermen, by a large vote, sustained the views of the majorit}^, 
and awarded the seat to Mr. Frost. 

One peculiar element in this case was the fact that man}' ballots 
were either mislaid or stolen, in Precinct 3 of Ward 13, on 
election day. 

For details of this case, which was a remarkable one in many 
respects, not herein recited, see Cit}- Document No. 38, for 1881. 

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

There have been the following successfully contested elections. 

The first, February 22, 1830, vacated the seat of a number 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 authorit}" 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. 

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, thereb}' 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 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, 1853, in accordance with the Report 
of the Committee on Elections, vacated the seats of three members 

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



COMMON COUNCIL. 259 

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 governmeijt elect. But inasmuch as the elections in question 
were conducted bond: Jide, 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 Beport 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 rnhabitant 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 
that the polls at said adjourned meeting were not kept open the 
same number of hours as were required b}' 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, 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, Frede-iok S- Risteen 



260 MUNICIPAL KEGISTEE. 

was declared elected as a member from "Ward 10. This election 
was contested by J. Q. A. Bracliett, 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 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, Januar}" 4, 1874, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, because, hy 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, b}^ the count of the original ballots cast 
in said ward, it appeared that another person was elected. 

The eighteenth, Januarj^ 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. 

The twentieth, Dec. 27, 1880 (see records of Board of Aldermen 
of said date) , vacated the seats of one member from each of the 
following-named wards, viz., 3, 13, 16, and 19, because, from an 
examination of the original ballots cast in said wards, it appeared 
that other persons were chosen. From an examination made at the 
same time of the original ballots cast in Ward 5, it appeared that, 
instead of there being a tie vote for a third member from said ward, 
three members were duly chosen. A peculiar interest is attached to 
the case in Ward 13 from two facts, — first, that some of the ballots 
undoubtedly deposited by the voters of Precinct 3 of this ward were 
either mislaid or stolen at the polling place ; and, second, because the 
Committee of the Board of Aldermen of 1880, who examined the bal- 
lots for Common Council in that ward, erroneously reported that the 
sitting member had been dulj' elected. [See City Doc. 54 of 1881.]
