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 Roxbury 
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. 
Q5) ; annexed to Boston on the 7th of Oct., 1873 
(St. 1873, c. 303).

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 codifica-

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 Aldermen, and are subject im- 
mediately to the care and inspection of the City Engineer, 
who is required to examine and report annually upon their 
condition and requirements. [See City Doc. No. 22 for 
1879.] 

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 
of snow and ice from the foot-paths, and the prevention of 
trespasses on 'said bridges. For these duties they receive 
such compensation as the City Council from time to time 
determine. 

BRIDGES WHOLLY SUPPORTED BY THE CITY. 

Ashland street, in Ward 23, over Boston and Providence 
Railroad.

nate terms, of three hours each, as principal, and the same 
as assistant operator ; so that twelve hours' service at the

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 Sig- 
nal Stations or Boxes, by pulhng a slide in the box. The 
police-officers and one other person resident near each station

FIKE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 123 

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 BelU 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 /owr, 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 five, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alartns 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 four times, thus : 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 ; 
upon which the several pieees 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 and 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 —

124 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



DIRECTIONS TO BE OBSERVED IN CASE OF EIRE. 

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 
do the same there ; but do not touch any other box if the 
nearest one gives the alarm. 

After giving the alarm, remain awhile, \i 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 difi'erent section of the city, 
a second alarm can be given by a police-oflacer without wait- 
inof 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. 

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

Central Library books may be applied for at the several

EAST BOSTON BE^NCH. 

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 



PUBLIC LIBKAKY. 159 

collection of about 5,000 volumes was ready for use, and 
this Branch was opened on May 1, 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. 



EOXBUKY 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- 
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- 
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 Lila^ary, 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 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, i^res^cZe«^,• Nathaniel 



160 MUNICIPAL EEGISTER. 

J. Bracllee, Treasurer; Gorham Rogers; Wm. C. Collar; 
Rev. Edward E. Hale ; Joseph S. Ropes ; John F. Osgood ; 
Rev. John Gr. 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 BEANCH. 

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. 



CHAELESTOWN 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. 



BEIGHTON BEANCH. 

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 



PUBLIC LIBKAKY. 161 

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. 
Deliveries of the Branch have been established at the Lower 
Mills, and at Mattapan, from which place books are asked 
for and received 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 Room, 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 ROXBURY DELIVERY. 

On Nov. 11, 1879, the West Hoxbury Free Library trans- 
ferred its collection of over 3,000 volumes, at Westerly Hall,

established there of books from the Jamaica Plain Branch 
and the Central Library.

OF 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 Underbill, 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 Leverett, 
William Hutchinson, Williain Colburu, John Coggeshall, John 
Sanford, Richard Tuttell, Wilham 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 Keayne 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. 

Sept. 28, 1640. — Nine chosen for the next six months : Colborn 
Eliot, Gibbons, Tyng, Winthrop, Bellingham, and Hibbens, old 
members ; with John Newgate and Atherton Hough added. 

May 27, 1641. — Nine chosen: the seven old members, with 
John Oliver and James Pen for Newgate and Hough. 

March 6, 1641-42. — Nine chosen: eight reelected, and Valen- 
tine Hill in place of Hibbens. 

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

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

Sept. 25, 1643. — Same nine reelected. 

May 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. Tjng dropped ; Robert 
Keaj^ne and Thomas Fowle added. 

No election is recorded in 1646, though all but Fowle were 
serving Feb. 25, 1646-47. Probabl}' 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 days 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.

Boston, 1882. 



JOHN P. HEALY, 

Early in the present year the citizens of Boston were 
called upon to mourn the loss of one of their most respected, 
faithful, and efficient public servants. John Plummer He alt, 
LL. D. (Dart., 1871), who died on the fourth of January, 
1882, was born at Washington, N". H., on the twenty-eighth 
day of December, 1810. He was the son of a distinguished 
citizen of New Hampshire, Hon. Joseph Healy, who served 
his State as State Senator (1824), as Representative in the 
Congress of the United States (1825-1829), as State Coun- 
cillor (1829-1832), and who died October 10, 1861, at the 
advanced age of eighty-five years. 

The subject of this sketch passed his early boyhood in his 
native town, which he loved dearly, and to which, in after 
years, he made frequent pilgrimages. Here, on its beautiful 
hills, in its pleasant valleys, through its dense and delightful 
forests, he romped and played, as boys are everywhere wont 
to do ; and in its quiet streams he delighted to fish and swim. 
Here he breathed in that pure and refreshing air which gave 
strength to his frame and vigor to his mind. Here, too, he 
received his elementary education and training. His classics 
and the other requisites for admission to Dartmouth College 
he acquired in the Plainfield Academy, N.H. He was an intel- 
ligent, studious, and sensible lad, and entered his alma mater 
in 1831, when he was nearly twenty-one years of age. 

Healy was soon well known among his fellow-students, 
and became the universal favorite of his class ; his ways and 
manners were sometimes old-fashioned for a young man of 
his years, and he was known throughout the college as "old 
man Healy." His mind was even then well matured, and his

physical development strong and sturdy. He was excep- 
tionally popular with his own classmates, and was, by many 
of them, made the depository of college secrets. His advice 
was often sought by students whose scrapes had endangered 
their stay in college ; and some of these classmates, after 
nearly fifty years have passed away, tell to-day how " old 
man Healy" helped them out of their troubles. 

At college young Healy entered into no sports that re- 
quired physical exertion. While other students enjoyed 
their game at foot-ball, or tried their skill at the oar, Healy 
amused himself by looking on. He had no inclination to 
participate in these healthy pastimes ; but in sports in which 
he had neither to run, jump, or otherwise exert himself, he 
was among the foremost. He was then, as in later years, a 
hearty, honest, good-natured young man, with a natui'al 
turn for the humorous, and apt power of illustration and 
anecdote. 

Favorite as he was with his fellow-students, he was highly 
esteemed by the college authorities, and very much appre- 
ciated by them. The late Professor Charles B. Haddock, 
especially, took a strong liking to Healy, and a very close 
friendship grew up between the professor and student, 
which may possibly have had an efiect upon Healy's sub- 
sequent career. 

In 1835 Healy graduated, and almost immediately after 
began the study of law in Daniel Webster's office, in Boston. 
Since the death of Webster it has often been asked how it 
was that Healy studied in his office, and afterward became 
the law partner of the ''great expounder." Possibly the 
fact that Professor Haddock, who was related to Mr. Web- 
ster, had recommended his young friend to his relative, or 
the fact that Mr. Healy's father was a distinguished public 
man in New Hampshire, and was well acquainted with Mr. 
Webster, induced the latter to take under his patronage the 
young Dartmouth college graduate. Be that as it may, the 



MEMOm OP JOHN P. HBALT. 257 

intercourse and intimacy between the two men became so 
close that it only ended with the death of the elder. At the 
time that Healy first began his law studies with Mr. Web- 
ster, the latter was representing Massachusetts in the Senate 
of the United States for his second term, and was in the 
very prime of his political and, professional fiime. His 
speech, in reply to Hajaie, on the famous resolutions of 
Mr. Foot, of Connecticut, delivered on January 26 and 27, 
1830, has never been excelled as the greatest forensic eifort 
on the floor of the Senate, even by Webster himself, and 
easily won him the name of the greatest orator and states- 
man in the Union ; and his arguments on the Dartmouth Col- 
lege (1818) and Warren Bridge (1837) cases, established 
his title as the foremost lawyer of the land. 

Association with so great a man, in the greatness of his 
intellectual powers, must have had an effect on the mind of 
the young law-student, and soon after his admission to the 
bar, in 1838, we find him assisting Mr. Webster in the 
preparation and trial of his great causes, and following his 
political faith and fortunes. Mr. Healy was elected to the 
Massachusetts House of Representatives, as a Whig, in 1840, 
and again in 1849 and 1850, and served each session with 
fidelity and distinction ; and in 1854 he represented a part 
of Boston in the State Senate, serving as Chairman of the 
important Committee on Railways and Canals, and on tlie 
Committees on Towns and on Education. 

Soon after Mr. Healy 's admission to the bar he became 
the partner of Mr. Webster, and during the most of the 
years that the partnership continued Mr. Webster was 
almost constantly in Washington, either in the Senate or in 
the Cabinet, and Mr. Healy was much relied on by his 
senior for the laborious work of preparing the cases Mr. 
Webster had in charge, and for the business detail of their 
management. " This relation of the parties," wrote a lead- 
ing Boston paper in its obituary notice of Mr. Healy, " was 



258 MUISTICIPAL REGISTER. 

more than professional and formal ; it was sympathetic and 
filial. Mr. Webster reposed unbomided confidence in his 
associate, and appreciated at its just value the native sa- 
gacity and legal acumen of the young counsellor- In Mr. 
Webster's absence from the city, during his official terms at 
Washinoton, the law business at home was entrusted to the 
junior, with due consultation between the two by mail re- 
garding important issues or contingencies that might arise." 

So high an ' appreciation had Mr. Webster of the legal 
attainments of his junior, that, while he was Secretary of 
State under President Fillmore, he procured Mr. Healy's 
appointment as Judge of the United States District Court 
for the District of California. From the same paper above 
quoted we take the following version of his declining the 
office, only adding that it is such an example of sincere 
filial aflection as is rarely equalled, if ever excelled : — 

Mr. Healy hesitated much as to accepting ; but being warmly urged 
by friends in whom Ke reposed confidence, at length decided affirma- 
tively in the matter, and made preparations to leave for the distant but 
promising field of professional opportunity thus opened to him. To 
tell how he came to recall that decision will be to present not only a 
biographical fact in its proper order, but will vividly illustrate a salient 
personal trait. Mr. Healy's father was the Hon. Joseph Healy, a man 
of distinction and influence in New Hampshire, and representative in 
Congress of that State during several terms. At the time referi'ed to 
he was a man of venerable years, and withdrawn through decrepitude 
from all active pursuits. His son's appointment and his purpose to 
accept it had been made known to him, so that, when the son came to 
the ancestral home for the final leave-taking, he brought no surprising 
intelligence. The old man had decided upon it as a wise step for his 
son to take, and upon their meeting so advised him, saying: " My son, 
you must go ; it is your duty to go." In giving utterance to the coun- 
sels of wisdom he could not restrain the promptings of affection, and 
burst into tears. It was the turning-jjoint of the whole aftair, for filial 
considerations instantly became dominant in the young man's mind, 
and the desire of Webster, the urging of professional friends, and the 
prospects of a career of the highest honor, ceased to have weight before 
the old man's involuntary appeal. Mr. Healy resolved to remain at 
Boston so long as his father should live. Much as he will be lamented 



MEMOIR OF JOHN P. HEALY. 259 

by those with whom he has held professional and business relations, it 
is with those who have, in more intimate relations, come to know the 
tender sensibilities of the man, and that loveliness of personal chai-acter 
which this anecdote bespeaks, that his loss will most deeply be felt. 

During a few years following Mr. Webster's death Mr. 
Healy continued to practise law in his office at the corner of 
Court and Tremont streets, in Boston ; but in 1856 he was 
chosen City Solicitor to succeed Hon. Ambrose A. Ranney. 
For twenty-five years, whatever w\as the political complexion 
of the City Council, he was each year reelected ; and last year 
the office of Corporation Counsel was especially created for 
him. There is but one opinion in the public mind as to his 
administration of the office of City Solicitor, and that is, that 
he discharged all its duties in a conspicuously wise, honest, 
able, and successful manner. His firmness and strong sense 
of right, and the faith in, and respect for, his unflinching 
honesty, conduced nuich to maintain the proud eminence of 
Boston for municipal integrity and honor among her sister 
cities on this continent. Twenty-five consecutive elections 
bear witness to the faith which many successive City Coun- 
cils had in him. 

He was most constant in his attendance in his office, and 
seldom even took a day's vacation, or absented himself from 
the city. He was most courteous to all who came in official 
relation with him ; and no one ever left his presence without 
being impressed with his absolute honesty. He was kind to 
all his associates and subordinates, and was tender and for- 
bearing to the young men connected with his office. His 
was one of those natures which never suspected wrong in 
any one. 

His mind was, however, thoroughly masculine, and, al- 
though not a lawyer who indulged in constant reading of law 
books or reports, he was thoroughly grounded in the under- 
lying principles of the law, and had the faculty of applying 
hese principles to his cases whether at nisi prius or in an 



260 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

argument on questions of law before the full bench. No man 
had a better knowledge of, or more experience on, questions 
of municipal law than he ; and his opinions were sought and 
acquiesced in by many cities and towns outside of Boston. 
His arguments before court or jury were generally short, 
and he always took in and stated the sensible and salient 
points. His power before juries was remarkable ; and, in the 
opinion of the Chief Justice of the highest court of this Com- 
monwealth, was peculiarly eifective. He used none of the 
devices of rhetoric ; his address to the jury was plain, open, 
honest talk, as between neighbors. He thus gained their 
good-will and attention ; and, as his integrity was known to 
all, their confidence and favorable verdicts followed. The 
courts all recognized the same traits of his character ; and, as 
he was never known to argue frivolous exceptions, he was 
always listened to with closest attention and interest. 

When Mr, Healy first became City Solicitor the Supreme 
Court leaned much in favor of plaintiffs in suits for damages 
caused by falling on slippery sidewalks. By persistently 
insisting that cities and towns were not responsible for cli- 
matical conditions, the court was induced to modify its pre- 
vious opinions on this class of cases, so that now cities and 
towns- are freed from liability in a large number of cases 
in which they had previously been held to be responsible for 
accidents. 

His opinions on questions arising in the various depart- 
ments of the city government were sound, and always fear- 
lessly given, having regard only for the right, and never 
caring whether they favored friend or foe. 

The action of the various pul)lic bodies with which he 
was connected exhibits the universal esteem in which Mr. 
Healy was held. 

Mr. Healy's domestic life, until its very latest years, was 
of that happily uneventful type, many years of which can 
be suflficiently described in a few short sentences. Upon his 



MEMOIR OF JOHN P. HEALY. 261 

first coming to Boston he made his home at the house of Mr. 
Jedecliah Barker, in Province court, where he and Mr. 
Oliver Ditson v^ere room-mates up to the time of the latter's 
marriage, nearly ten years later ; and the intimate friendship 
between the two continued throughout Mr. Healy's life. In 
December, 1847, Mr. Healy married Mary Stickney, Mr. 
Barker's only daughter, who survives him. Their only child, 
Joseph, was born on August 6, 1849, and by his life at school, 
at college, and in his profession, more than justified the 
pride and fulfilled the hopes of his parents and friends. To 
Joseph, in 1878, was born a daughter, a source of ever- 
increasing interest and delight to her grandfather, and early 
in 1880 it would have seemed that nothing could be added 
to the comforts and pleasures of Mr. Healy's serene old age. 
In April of that year a sickness lasting less than three days 
brought the idolized son down to death ; and to many who 
knew them both it seemed inevitable that the heart of the 
father should be buried in the grave of the son. Mr. Healy 
was not a man to talk of his griefs ; he seldom alluded to 
his loss, and some intimate friends who had known him in 
former j^ears as a genial companion again at rare intervals 
enjoyed his shrewd humor and rare conversational powers. 
But that a change had come over him was only too evident. 
He mino^led with the world even less than he had done be- 
fore, and when his own summons came, and came suddenly, 
as he had always reverently hoped it might, the grief of 
those who mourn him was tempered by the thought that he 
had gone to meet his boy. 

The funeral services were held at Mr. Healy's late resi- 
dence on Temple street, on Saturday, January 7, 1882, 
at one o'clock, and were attended by Mayor Green, and 
a number of Aldermen and Common Councilmen and 
city officials, several ex-mayors, a very large number of 
legal gentlemen, including the Chief Justices of the Supreme 
Judicial Court and of the Superior Court, and others well 



262 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

known in other professions. The services were conducted 
by the Rev. S. Iv. Lothrop, D.D., who spoke of the sudden 
death, within so short a time, of two meu^ alike eminent and 
honored in their common profession, to the elder of whom 
they had gathered to pay tribute. If, said he, the "honest 
man is the noblest work of God," then Mr. Healy was among 
the noblest of the noble. He was so thoroughly honest as 
to be respected, confided in, and relied upon. He had as 
few faults as commonly belong to humanity ; and to be just, 
to do right, and to preserve his own personal integrity and 
the honor of the city unspotted, was the law of his life, and 
faithfully and unflinchingly he obeyed it. His heart Avas as 
warm as his head was cool, and his judgment wise and com- 
prehensive. His death has left a vacancy difficult to fill. 
In his opinions and religious convictions he was conservative, 
but not narrowly so. His life and convictions rested upon 
deeds rather than words, and should be an admonition to us 
to be as faithful, true, and persevering as he was, that we 
may be prepared for the end, which sooner or later must 
come to all of us. 

At the conclusion of the services the remains were taken 
to Mount Auburn, His Honor Mayor Green and Messrs. 
Samuel F. McCleary, Henry C. Hutchins, Henry W. Paine, 
Oliver Ditson, and Benjamin P. Cheney acting as pall- 
bearers, and were placed in the family lot beside those of his 
son. 

" And doubtless unto him is given, 
A life that bears immortal fruit ! "

APPENDIX. 

ACTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL. 

In Common Council, Jan. 5, 1882. 
THE DEATH OF THE COEPORATION COUNSEL. 
The following was received : — 

Executive Department, Jan. 5, 1882. 
To the Honorable the City GovmcU : — 

It becomes m}' sad duty to inform you that the Honorable John 
P. Healy, the Corporation Counsel, died yesterday at his residence. 
Mr. Healy's services to the cit\', covering a period of a quarter of 
a centur}', were so varied and valuable that I respectfully recom- 
mend that the event of his death should be noticed in some proper 
manner. 

SAMUEL A. GREEN, 

Mayor. 

The President. — The Chair awaits the pleasure of the Council. 

Mr. Whitmore. — It is my dat}' and privilege, Mr. President, 
having belonged for three years to the committee which had par- 
ticular relations with Mr. Healy's office, to present at this time 
suitable resolutions of respect ; and, in sending them to the Chair, I 
will say that 1 shall not undertake to add anything, because I know 
that others desire to bear a proper tribute to his memory. I would 
be happy myself to avail of this opportunity to say more, but I 
refrain, believing that I have given expression to my own feelings 
in the resolutions I have offered. 

The President read the following : — 

Resolved, That the City Council has heard with deep regret of the death of 
John P. Healy, the Corporation Counsel, who for twenty-five years consecu- 
tively filled the responsible post of City Solicitor of Boston. 

Resolved, That the City Council hereby records its appreciation of the 
great professional skill vt'ith which Mr. Healy protected the interests of the 
city, of his unceasing and courteous attention to his duties as legal adviser of 
the Council, and of the many charming qualities of head and heart which 
made him the most agreeable of companions, as well as the safest of counsel- 
lors. 

Resolved, That the City Clerk be instructed to forward a copy of these 
resolves to the widow of our friend, with the warmest assurance of our sym- 
pathy with her in her irreparable loss. 



264 MUNICIPAL EEGISTEE. 

Mr. Morse, of Ward 9. in seconding tlie resolutions, spoke as 
follows : — 

Mr. President, — The announcement by His Honor the Mayor that 
the honored Counsellor of this city is dead fills me with profoundest 
sorrow, and I know that the members of this Council, as- well as 
the citizens of Boston, will feel that a great loss has fallen upon 
us. His death was sudden and without apparent pain. He at- 
tended the dinner of the retiring Board of Aldermen on Saturday 
last, entertained company at his house on Sunday, was taken sick 
with congestion of the lungs on Monday, and last evening was no 
more among the living. 

I am especially filled with sadness when I recall m}^ last visit to 
this Council Chamber previous to my membership in this bod}'. It 
was on April 20, 1880, when this bod}' met to pay its homage of 
respect to the memory of Joseph Healy, the only child of the 
deceased, who was a member of the Council from Ward 10. From 
the loss of that only child, and most promising son, Mr. Healy 
never full}' recovered. 

It was a terrible blow for one in his years, and for one so ten- 
derly attached as he was to his only child. 

John P. Healy was in the 72d year of his age when he died. 
He was born in the town of Washington, N.H., in the year 1810, 
and was educated at Dartmouth College, where he graduated in 
1835. Immediately upon finishing his collegiate course Mr. Healy 
came to Boston, and entered the office of Daniel Webster as a 
student of law. Thereafter he was intimately associated with 
Mr. Webster in the practice of law until Mr. Webster's decease ; 
and during the greater portion of the time was his partner in busi- 
ness. In 1856 Mr. Healy was elected City Solicitor, and from 
year to year has been constantly reelected up to the time of his 
death. This marked selection of him as the legal adviser of this 
city was procured through no political influence, — no one cared 
how he voted, — but v^^as a tribute to his abilities and learning on 
questions of municipal law, and to his sterling honesty. No public 
officer ever enjoyed more the respect of the community for his in- 
flexible integrity than did he. Beside his family, whom he tenderly 
cherished, he had but one duty — his office ; and often he neglected 
the former in his devotion to the latter. He was constant in his 
service ; the city was his mistress, and he worshipped and served 
her more faithfully than knight ever served lady. 

How true indeed of him the words of the great bard : — 

" O good old man, how Avell in thee appears 
The constant service of the antique world, 
When service sweat for duty, not for meed ! 
Thou art not for the fashion of these times, 
Where none will sweat but for promotion ; 
And having that, do choke their service up 
Even with the having: 'tis not so with thee." 



MEMOIR OF JOHN P. HEALY. 265 

His honest}', simplicit}', and piirit}' of character and integrity 
were liis distinguishing traits. He never compromised liis princi- 
ples for the sake of expediency or policy, but carried his convic- 
tions of justice, and honor, and right, into n\\ his dealings. 

He guarded the public interests intrusted in his hands with even 
more jealousy and cai'e than he ever did his own private affairs. The 
public at large has little conception of what the City of Boston 
owes John P. Healy for his long and distinguished services as City 
Solicitor. 

While we mourn his death, his life is worthy of emulation by all 
who have public interests confided to them. Mr. President, I 
second the motion for the adoption of the resolutions offered by 
the gentleman from Ward 12. 

The resolutions were ordered to a second reading, and on motion 
of Mr. Lauten, of Ward 14, a rising vote was ordered on the ques- 
tion of their passage. 

The resolutions were passed bj- a unanimous rising vote. Sent 
up. 

Mr. Whitmore off"ered the following : — 

Ordered, That the President and eight members of the Common 
Council be constituted a committee to represent this branch of the 
City Council at the funeral of the late John P. Heal}', Corporation 
Counsel. 

Passed ; and Messrs. Parkman of Ward 9, Wharton of Ward 11, 
Huntress of Ward 11, Emery of Ward 18, Morse of Ward 9, Cot- 
ton of Ward 4, Whitmore of Ward 12, and Cummings of Ward 10, 
were appointed said committee. 

Mr. Whitmore off'ered the following : — 

Ordered, That the Joint Standing Committee on Rules and 
Orders be instructed to have prepared a suitable memoir of the 
late John P. Healy, and to insert the same in the Municipal 
Register for the current year. 

Passed. Sent up. 



ACTION OF THE BOARD OF ALDERMEN. 

A special meeting of the Board of Aldermen was held Friday 
afternoon, January 6, 1882. In calling the Board to order, 
Mayor Green said : — 

" G-entlemen, 3'ou have been called together to receive a com- 
munication from the Common Council in regard to the death of the 
Hon, John P. Heal}-. During a period of twentj'-five years he 
was connected with the city government as its legal adviser, and 
it seems right and proper that some notice should be taken of his 



266 MTJNICIPAL KEGISTER. 

death." The Mayor read, the executiA'e communication announcing 
to the City Council the death of the Hon. John P. Healy, Corpora- 
tion Counsel, with the resolutions which had been sent up for con- 
currence. 

The question coming on the passage of the resoliitioiis in con- 
currence, Alderman Slade said : "I wish that I was able to make 
the remarks that are due from a member of this Board of Alder- 
men on this occasion. Coming from the same State that Mr. 
Heal}- did, and having been raised in the immediate neighborhood 
where he was raised, probably my acquaintance with liim will extend 
back farther than that of any other member of the City Council. 
I recollect that when I was quite a small bo}' Mr. Heal}' v/as a 
school-teacher in our neighborhood. Children are ver}' apt to 
remember a ver}^ popular teacher, or one for whom the^' had great 
respect and love. That was the case with Mr. Heah'. He was a 
very popular, pleasant, and efficient school-teacher. In the few 3-ears 
intervening between that and the time when I met him in Boston, 
I, of course, lost sight of him ; but oile of my first acquaintances 
in this city was Mr. Healy. He was the first and only man I ever 
called upon for legal advice, and his advice was always freely given. 
I think it was characteristic of Mr. Healy, as a lawyer, to give 
advice, to young men especiall}', without charge ; and the advice that 
any person received from him could be relied upon. I think he was 
strictly honest in all his dealings with his fellow-men. I have been 
quite intimately associated with Mr. Healy for more than thirty 
years in Boston, especially since I have been in the City Council. 
In the work of the department of improved sewerage Mr. Healy 
stood at the back of the committee, and in every emergenc}' has 
been our guiding-star, as you might say, all through. The com- 
mittee had implicit confidence in him ; and I believe we have never 
been mistaken in that confidence. I sat beside him at the dinner 
of the Board of Aldermen last Saturday evening. He was very 
happy in going over the events of his earl}' life while teaching 
seliool, which I have mentioned, and seemed to remember the names 
of all the children and their parents as well as I, who had been 
there a great deal of my life, and to be gratified at learning what 
had become of them all. It was \evy pleasant to me to have that 
pleasure that evening, and with all others I regret that he has been 
called away so suddenly. With these few remarks, I move the 
adoption of the resolutions." 

The resolutions were adopted unanimously by a rising vote. 
The Mayor, and Aldermen Slade, Hersey, and Haldeman were 
joined to the committee to represent the City Council at the 
funeral.

ACTION OF THE BENCH AND THE BAR OF SUFFOLK 
COUNTY ON THE DEATH OF JOHN P. UEALY. 

A largely attencled meeting of the Suffolk Bar Association was 
held in tlie Supreme Judicial Court Room on January 6, 1882, to 
take action on the death of the late Hon. John P. Heal}-. Among 
those present were Attorney General Marston, Hon, Charles R. 
Train, Hon. Seth J. Thomas, District Attorney Stevens, J. H. 
Noble, Clerk of the Supreme Court ; Clement Hugh Hill, Clerk 
of the United States District Court ; Assistant District Attorney 
Dacey, Colonel Henry Walker, Hon. William G. Russell, Hon. 
Henr}^ D. Hyde, Charles E. Pratt, Esq., Andrew J. Bailey, Esq., 
City Solicitor; Solomon Lincoln, Jr., M. F. Dickinson, Jr., 
Augustus Russ. Esq., Thomas J. Gargan, Esq., Hon. E. Rockwood 
Hoar, Hon. William Gaston, Colonel Isaac Hull Wright, J. Lewis 
Stackpole, Esq., R. M. Morse, Jr., Esq., John C. Dodge, Esq., Rob- 
ert Codraan, Esq., Charles Allen, Esq., Charles Theodore Russell, 
Esq., George O. Shattuck, Esq., Colonel E. P. Nettleton, N. F. 
Safford, Esq., Hon. Asa French, T. L. Wakefield, Esq., Clias. H. 
Swan, Esq., Godfrey Morse, Esq., Otis Norcross, Jr., ICsq., Gren- 
ville H. Norcross, Esq. Besides these there were a large number of 
the 3'ounger members of the bar, and the assemblage was remark- 
able as being one of the most distinctively representative of the 
legal profession ever held in the court-house. General Marston 
called the meeting to order, and, after alluding to the circumstances 
which brought them together, called upon the Hon. Sidnej^ Bartlett 
to preside. Caleb William Loring, Esq., was elected secretarj'. 
The Hon. Peleg W. Chandler presented a resolution, with these 
remarks : — 

" Mr. Chairman, I have been requested by friends of Mr. Healy 
to prepare and present to this meeting a resolution. I have 
undertaken the duty with some hesitation, because there are many 
present who have come into more intimate relations with him 
of late years. But I have known our friend for nearly half a 
century. I preceded him in the important office which he held 
with such distinguished ability, and can testifj^ of him at a period 
before a large majority of the bar were admitted to practice. There 
are older men than Mr. Healy now practising in this city. The 
Nestor of our bar (Long live the King !) precedes him by several 
3'ears ; but in continuous service here our deceased associate was 
among the first. Those of us who survive, and especially those 
who have been obliged by physical infirmity to relinquish active 
business in the courts, cannot but be sensibl}^ touched by the 
numerous recent deaths of our active comrades, and are reminded 
of those mournful words of an old' writer, ' Where now is Mow- 
bray ? Where is Mortimer ? Nay, wiiich is most of all, where is 



268 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



Plantagenet ? They are entombed in the urns and sepulchres of 
mortality-.' " 

Resolved, That the members of the Suffolk Bar desire to express, at the 
earliest moment, their thorough appreciation of the great professional ability, 
the eminent public services, and the high character of their deceased asso- 
ciate, Hon. John P. Healy. In actual, continuous labor at this bar, he was 
one of the oldest members. He was well read in professional learning, a 
patient investigator, a safe counsellor, faithful to his clients, true to the court, 
and courteous to his opponents. But his greatest power, and his most extended 
influence, were in his character as a man. Simple in his tastes, unostentatious 
in his manners, kindly in his methods, with a keen sense of humor, his pres- 
ence was always agreeable, and his influence for what was just and right was 
always pronounced and strong, and given with a sincerity utterly regardless 
of personal consequences and the makeshift expedients of timid and unreli- 
able men. As a public officer in an important and most responsible position, 
Mr. Healy was entitled to all the consideration in which he has been held for a 
quarter of a century. In times when the seductions of power and luxury have 
greatly multiplied the temptations to unfaithfulness and a lax morality, he was 
absolutely pure and incorruptible. Coming in conflict often with claims which 
were considered just by their advocates, and thus exciting the earnest opposi- 
tion of interested parties, the man does not live who would dare, in tliis com- 
munity, to asperse his honor in the slightest degree. The death of our associate 
was so sudden as greatly to shock the natural sensibilities. It is less than a 
week since he was in the active performance of the duties of his office ; but he 
had arrived at an age when the summons must soon come, and when it might 
be expected at any moment. The work that was set before him here has 
been done, and well done ; the fruits are now his in the increased capacity for 
higher uses in a larger sphere. 

After the resohition hud been read by Mr. Chandler, the ques- 
tion being upon its acceptance, Mr. Seth J. Thomas said : — 

" Mr. Chairman, I too have known Mr. Healy for many 
years ; and I think I may say that I do not know of a man living 
on Saturday" hist, who, among all classes of our fellow-citizens, higti 
and low, rich and poor, learned and ignorant, was better known 
than Mr. John P. Healy. It is in the mouth of everybody that 
I meet, ' A good man has departed ' ; but I, who have known 
him for so many 3'ears intimately, go further than that, and say 
that, in mj^ judgment, he was both a good and a great man. His line 
was great, and he was great in that line. When two years or so 
ago I looked upon another old friend as he lay in his casket, and 
whose office was for so many j'ears at No. 30 Court street, I said : 
' How is it that such law, so much needed, is no longer audible?' 
And I found the answer to be, sucli is the law of nature. But, 
while my fiiend at No. 30 could tell me what the courts of England 
and of this country had decided in a gift case, perhaps quite simi- 
lar, ni}- friend at No. 46 could tell me what the court must decide, or 
perhaps would decide, in this very case. If my friend at No. 30 
had learning, my friend at No. 46 had wisdom. He had, as the 
sigii Scant expression is, ' a heap of common-sense.' And he w^as, 
thi'ough and through, an honest and sincere man. The old Chief

Justice Bigelow once said : ' How is it that Mr. Healy gets his 
cases? He is so jtidiciiil that he argues the case of the other side 
as fairly as he does his ovvu.' Tlie reply was, ' Tliat is true. He 
gets his cases because jurors believe in him, and if you rule the law 
with him lie Avill be pretty sure to recover ; for he never tries a case 
except he believes that lie ouglit to win it.' He was frank, too, witii 
his friends, and did not hesitnte, even with Mr. Webster, to state 
how the matter rested in his mind. I recollect that, in the course 
of the ti'ial of John Francis Knapp, at Salem, in which Mr. Webster 
acted as leading counsel for the government, it was with great 
difficulty that he could persuade the court — composed of Justices 
Putnam, Wilde, and Morton — that the testimony of Coleman, to 
whom Knapp had made a confession, was admissible ; and when 
speaking to Mr. Healy some time nfterward of the difficulty he had 
in getting that testimony into that case, Mr. Healy I'eplied, 'Yes ; 
but I don't believe 3'ou ought to have got it in.' I doubt if Mr. Healy 
had read Plato with care ; but, b}' one who had, Mr. Healy would 
be regarded as a great favorite with Plato. I know of no man who 
would have conducted an examination in the protagaros or in the 
republic more as Plato did, in the method of Socrates, than Mr. 
Healy. I think I may sa}?^ the city never had a more faithful 
public servant; and. I believe that twenty years hence no man who 
may die in this city in the year 1882 will be better known by those 
who survive him at that time than Mr. Healy." 

Mr. Thomas was followed b}' George O. Shattuck, Esq., who 
said : "■ I can add only a single word in support of what has already 
been said. Mr. Healy was a large man, with a strong intellect, 
warm affections, and broad sympathies. His success with juries 
was remarkable. He owed it to his weight of character, and to 
the general confidence in his integrity. He was not remarkable in 
the preparation of a case, but he relied on what he considered the 
main point. Probably no man at the Suffolk Bar had won from 
juries so many verdicts b}' reason of his weight of character and 
the confidence felt in his integrity as John P. Healy." 

Judge Hoar, who spoke next, gave personal reminiscences of 
Mr. Healy's youth. He related his first acquaintance with Mr. 
Heal3% when then only quite a young man in the office of Mr. 
Webster, and stated the impression which Mr. Healy then made 
upon him, as a miniature Daniel Webster. He was apparently as 
mature at that time as he found him years after. He also spoke 
of the great debt which the city of Boston owed to him for his 
steadfastness in resisting all that seemed to him to be wrong, and 
in doing what, and only what, he conceived to be right. Mr. 
Healy was one of those men who were incorruptible and immovable. 
J. Lewis Stackpole, Esq., spoke of his personal relations with Mr. 
Healy, as associated with him for some years in his office, and 



270 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

especially of the gentleness of his nature, the purit}' of his private 
life, and his consideration and tender care, especfall}' for the 
younger men about him. Colonel Nettleton also spoke of his 
association with Mr. Healy as an assistant in his office during the 
last six or seven years, which ended only on the 1st of October 
last. He spoke of Mr. Healj^'s great bereavement in the loss of 
his only son and child, his constancy in business, and his sturdi- 
ness in opposing all attempts upon his integrity and honor. Philip 
H. Sears, Esq., said that Mr. Heal}' seemed to him to be a man 
who had an inexhaustible fund of common-sense ; and A. R. Brown, 
Esq., spoke of his acquaintance with Mr. Heal}' as a student and 
classmate at Dartmouth College, and how he was the same coun- 
sellor to his class at that time as he was of those who sought 
counsel from him in later years. 

The resolution was then unanimously adopted ; and it was voted 
tiiat copies be presented to the Supreme Court by the Attorney- 
General, and be sent to Mr. Flealy's famil}', and that the bar attend 
the funeral in a body. 

On the fourth da}' of March, 1882, the above resolution was 
pi'esented to the Supreme Judicial Court by the Attorney-General, 
who said : — 

" John P. Healy died on the fourth day of January last, passing 
away so suddenly that we scarcely missed his familiar and gracious 
presence before we were made aware that he had gone beyond our 
vision. Mr. Healy was a gieat lawyer, and a great man. With- 
out any other ambition than that of usefulness he served this city 
as its principal law officer for a period of twenty-five years. It 
can never be known how much of the firmness, the integrity, the 
purity., the elevation of this city is due to his wise counsels and 
sturdy example. That Boston has maintained a municipal charac- 
ter surpassing that of any other city on this continent may be 
ascribed in large degree to him. One man, strong enough, cou- 
rageous enough, able enough, to be always master of the situation, 
and of himself, in such a position as Mr. Healy so long held, is a 
power that restrains evil and enforces and advances good. No 
man has lived within the confines of this municipality who has 
deserved better of his fellow-men than John P. Healy. 

" Of his great qualities as a lawyer of the first rank I will leave 
the resolution of the bar to speak. No poor words of mine can 
add to his reputation, or to the estimate of him which his brethren 
have so well expressed. 

"It remains for me to read the resolution, and then to move, 
Your Honor,' tliat it may have a place upon the records of this 
Court." 

After tlie reading of the resolution by the Attorney-General, 



MEMOIR OF JOHN P. HEALY. 271 

His Honor, Mr. Justice Charles Allen, in directing the resolution 
to be placed on the record, sixjke as follows : — 

" Mr. Attorne3'-General and Gentlemen of the Bar, — There is, 
of late, a sad frequency of occasions like this, when we meet to 
deplore the loss and bear loving testimony to tlie merits of lionored 
members of our profession. The general sense, caused by so many 
deaths within so short a period of time, is undoubtedly one of rapid 
mutation. Those who have been here are gone ; and many of those 
who are here will soon follow. This is natural. It llnds expression 
in our common feelings and our common speech. 

" There is, however, another lesson to be learned from these 
lives, and that is a lesson of encouragement and of inspiration. 
They have, one and all, been engaged in useful and honorable 
work. The investigation and determination of the principles by 
which nations or individuals must be governed in their dealings 
with each other, and on which their rights will depend in all the 
varied relations of national or human experience, and even the 
settling of existing rights and duties where no great principles are 
involved, but where individuals are unable to adjust their contro- 
versies for themselves, — all this is work of a high order, and most 
useful. We need not at this time, if ever, compare our profession 
carefully with others, with a view to see which is able to render 
the best service to mankind. Nor is this occasion suitable for the 
expression of our grateful recognition of the noble work done in 
other walks of life. But our thoughts are naturally turned to the 
consideration of the value and dignity of the way of life which we 
have selected for ourselves. And, with whatever doubts from 
others, with whatever despondency sometimes caused by the course 
of those who take the lowest view of their occupation, — who make 
it a struggle to obtain present advantages b}' any practicable 
means, or who seek to develop the greatest amount of controversy 
that a given state of facts will admit of, — we may well rest satisfied, 
on the whole, in the general conclusion which 1 have stated. No 
one can express this in loftier tone than that adopted by Webster 
at the meeting of the Suffolk Bar on the death of Judge Story. 

" ' Justice, sir,' said he, ' is the great interest of man on earth. 
It is the ligament which holds civilized beings and civilized nations 
together. Wherever her temple stands, and so long as it is duly 
honored, there is a foundation for social security, general happi- 
ness, and the improvement and progress of our race. And whoever 
labors on this edifice, with usefulness and distinction, whoever 
clears its foundations, strengthens its pillars, adorns its entabla- 
tures, or contributes to raise its august dome still higher in the 
skies, connects himself, in name, and fame, and character, with that 
which is and must be as durable as the frame of human society.' 

" We accordingly^ cherish with a just pride the memories of 
worthy members of our profession who have been prominent, and 



272 MUNICIPAIi REGISTER. 

of all those who have done their work faithfully and well, though 
not so prominently before the ejes of the world. Not one of all 
these, living or dead, but is held in affectionate regard or remem- 
brance. 

'•• Mr. Healy, in djing, has given to us not so much the sense of 
change as of permanence. Not so old in years as some whose 
presence we still rejoice in, he was for a long time in the same 
official position. He administered its duties with judicial impar- 
tialit3-. In deciding questions which rested on the application of 
principles of law, he showed no pi;epossession for or against 
persons or political parties. His administration was absolutely 
unpartisan. We can hardly hope ever to see a better illustration 
of the true spirit in which an office like that which he so long 
adorned should be administered. Who can measure how much he 
has done during all these years to introduce steadiness, stability, 
and well-considered methods into the management of the affairs of 
this great city, and how much substantial advantage to this com- 
munity has flowed, and will continue to flow, from such a life? 

"And so, Mr. Attorney-General and Gentlemen of the Bar, 
animated, and encouraged, and inspired by the examples of these, 
our brethren, let us, in a like spirit, take up again the work which 
comes to each one of us. 

"In compliance with j'our request, the resolution will be placed 
on record." 



TRIBUTE BY THE ALUMNI OF DARTMOUTH COLLEGE. 

The Dartmouth Alumni Association met at the Revere House on 
Saturday forenoon, January 7, to take action on the death of 
the Hon. John P. Healy, who had been president of the Association 
since its organization. Robert I. Burbank, Esq., presided, and 
there were also present the Hon. A. B. Coffin (secretary), Gen. 
Henry K. Oliver, John H. Butler. Mr. Horatio G. Parker, the Hon. 
A. O. Brewster, the Rev. Luther Farnham (who numbered the Hon. 
Daniel Webster among his early parishioners), John L. Hayes, W. 
A. Herrick, Edward C. Carrigan, and others. On taking the chair 
Mr. Burbank read a feeling and appropriate eulogy on Mr. Healy, 
claiming that he was an honor to New Hampshire, to this Com- 
monwealth, to Dartmouth College, to the bar, and to the good city 
he loved so well, and his loss is irreparable. The following resolu- 
tions were presented by Judge Parker : — 

The Association of the Alumni of Dartmouth College, residing in Boston 
and vicinity, submissively recognizing the Divine hand and will in tlie sudden 
death of our honored and beloved brotlier alumnus and president, John 
Plummer Healy, — 



MEMOIR OF JOHN P. HEALT. 273 



Resolved, That his sound and extenisive learning, integrity, candor, clear 
sense, and practical skill as a lawyer and legislator, as well as his independent, 
firm, modest, and manly course and bearing, to the end of a life exceeding the 
allotted threescore years and ten, well earned the sincere admiration and 
affectionate confidence and regard which all who knew him well so freely and 
fully gave him ; and we here express our sense and appreciation of the honor 
"which his attainments, ability, and pure, well-rounded and evenly-balanced 
character and life have long reflected, and will long reflect, upon our honored 
alma mater, toward which he always manifested an unflagging interest and 
ardent love. 

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent to the family of the 
deceased. 

The adoption of the resolution was moved by Gen. Oliver, who 
spolce of Mr. Healy from the stand-point of one outside the legal 
profession, and seconded by Mr. Butler. The Hon. Mr. Coffin 
said that wliile he placed Mr. Healy in the foremost rank of gre^t 
men, he placed him at the head of good men. His character was 
of the noblest, and no one could be with him for any length of 
time without becoming imbued with a higher idea of men and of 
life. Mr. Hayes placed Mr. Healy above Rufns Choate in his 
power over juries. Mr. Carrigan and others paid eloquent tributes 
to the worth of Mr. Healy, and the resolutions were unanimously 
adopted b}' a rising vote. On motion of Gen. Oliver, it was voted 
to attend the funeral in a body, and to send a copy of the resolu- 
tions to the college. 



EDITORIAL FROM THE BOSTON DAILY ADVERTISER 
OF JANUARY 5, 1882. 

THE LATE JOHN P. HEALT. 

In the death of the Corporation Counsel the bar laments with 
poignant grief the loss of an eminent lawyer of the older and better 
school, the cit}^ government is deprived of a long-trusted and skilful 
official servant, and the public at large respect his memory as that 
of a benefactor and friend. His career has been a long and a 
memorable one, although destitute of the accidents and incidents 
which serve to lend grace and romance to mortal life. He was 
brought up under Mr. Webster, and was admitted to a more cordial 
intimacy with his master than fell to the happy lot of any other 
young man. He became his partner on being admitted to the bar. 
But the partnership brought little of the patronage of opportunity 
to the junior. Whoever came to the office came for the Great 
Expounder, and public duties kept him away from the local legal 
arena during three-quarters of the year. Mr. Healy's business in 
those days was very much that of a referee and auditor ; but he 
soon began to collect around him a solid clientage, who learned to 



274 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



appreciate his worth as a fii'st-rate legal adviser. With these his 
relations were most confidential and cordial. With these clients 
he was to the last in his manner simple, homespun, and affable, after 
a st3'le all his own. He became a citizen of prominence, and a 
lawyer of eminence. He carried himself and received ^'^ry much 
the supremacy of some local legal magnate of a country village, 
the great local jurist of the count}', whose opinions are valued as 
oracular and accepted as better than judicial authorit}', and, as an 
individual, is looked upon as every man's trusted friend and confi- 
dential adviser. He worked cheap, made long hours, and did legal 
business in the old-fashioned way, giving clients a large service for 
a small fee ; so that, before his retainer as the city's legal agent, he 
had established a capital legal business, and surrounded himself 
with troops of clients who thoroughly believed in him, and would 
patronize no one else. Very many of these still insisted on cling- 
ing to him after his official occupations compelled him to decline 
general business. The general public have little conception of the 
debt the city of Boston owes to John P. Healy for his long, faith- 
ful, able, and upright conduct of its legal interests. He was a 
veritable Solomon in all matters of legal right where the city was 
concerned. Whenever he recommended a settlement, it might well 
be regarded as certain that a settlement was the right thing and 
the best thing to be done. Whenever he chose a fight, a fight 
might be safely regarded as the prudent policj'. He waS' totally 
uninfluenced b}- fear, favor, or hope of reward. He was rigidly 
upright and conscientiously incorruptible in thought, word, and act. 
He was no party to any frauds, and no fraudulent claimant ever 
looked to him for countenance or support. No just claim or claim- 
ant ever found in him other than a candid listener and a just judge. 
As a jury lawj'er he was heav}' and slow ; but he was safe and 
sure. It was sometimes made a matter of complaint that, instead 
of going before juries in the city's heav}' litigation and fighting the 
battles personally and alone, he too often either retained eminent 
and expensive counsel outside the oflfice, or else sent his subordi- 
nates in to do his proper work. There was some ground for these 
complaints ; but much less than was supposed by those predisposed 
to find fault. He doubted his own strength before the popular 
tribunal, and he had little taste for the wrangle of a jury trial ; 
but he was a much more effective and powerful jurj'^ lawyer, and he 
came to have a distrust of jur}^ trial. His integrity, candor, 
business tact, sound learning, and practical skill in arguing facts, 
gave him weight, influence, and strength with intelligent jurors far 
more than eloquence, elegance, and clamor could have afforded. 
During most of the time when he was open to these charges the 
office was understood to be very inadequately equipped for its 
multiform duties. The subsequent reorganization of the oflfice 
was largely owing to his organizing capacity, and under him it 



MEMOIR or JOHN P. HEALT. 275 



came at last to be a thorough, S3'stematic bureau of TBunicipal 
justice. 

The roll of city solicitors is a memorable one, and John P. Healy 
leads them all in conspicuously able service. Pickering, Chandler, 
Ranney, Hillard, Healy, are bright names in the official life of the 
city. His mind was purely legal, and his tastes were for the law. 
He was thoroughl}^ grounded in the principles of the law. He was 
not a man of genius, but a legal mechanician of the first order. 
He was not, as compared with mere bookworms, a great student of 
the books, either in the text-books or the reports ; but he was well 
enough in both those lines of legal learning for all practical pur- 
poses. In all the law relating to towns and cities and municipal 
corporations he was thoroughly booked on authority and principle, 
and long experience therein made him a thorough adept. His 
opinions were sought on such matters from all parts of the State, 
and deservedly passed for oracles and models. He was a quiet, 
modest, and unpretentious man. He never pushed for place or 
prominence. The few official trusts which came to him came in 
every instance without seeking on his part, and were due solely to 
the fitness of the man for usefulness in the place. He more than 
once declined preferment, desiring to live and die a practising 
lawyer, and he has died in harness. He belonged to no rings and 
took part in no cabals. He belonged to no mutual admiration 
societies, and he had no lot with schemes and schemers. He was 
a downright, good-natured, true, and upright man. The stain of 
dishonor or the reproach of scandal never reached him. He had 
no vulgar ambition to make a noise in the world ; and yet. by virtue 
of his character and ability, he came to a position and achieved a 
fame of which any ambitious man would have been proud. 
Although not a scholar or a man of letters, he was very much more 
than a mere lawyer and jurist. He was not a man of comprehen- 
sive general reading, and had nothing of the vulgar pride of the 
bookman ; but he was a well-informed and a wise man. He was, 
besides, a delightful social companion, and, as a conversationalist, 
rich, racy, and rare. He delighted to recount his recollections of 
his great master, and would stand with you for an hour on the 
street corner, indulging in rich enlightenment on the personal 
character, life, and traits of his eminent friend. He was thoroughly 
loyal to the memory of the great statesman. With Healy, if with 
nobody else, the great, austere man would lay aside all his state, 
and unbend and stoop to fun and frolic, grotesque and democratic. 
John P. Heal}' was a character at the Boston Bar, not in the sense 
of eccentricit}', but of unique individuality. He was a character 
in his looks, in his manners, and in his views. H^e was a sturdy 
and manly thinker, and had opinions of his own which he never 
hesitated, on appropriate occasion, to express. The Boston Bar, 
within the memor}' of many of its present members, has had not a 



276 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



few contemporaries with Mr. Healy, who, hj virtue of intrinsic 
personalit}', should be ranked as characters : Henr}' H. Tuller, with 
his bhie coat and spencer, and thiclvl^y-padded white choker ; W. R. 
P. Washburn, whose downcast and abstracted mien and slow pace 
made him seem the legal monk ; Thompson Miller, the smail lawyer, 
but great theologian ; Ben Rand, the walking legal encyclopaedia ; 
Augustus H. Fiske, with bald pate, cheery face, and genial if pro- 
fanel}' rough manners, the best reproduction on our soil of the 
ideal English attorney ; and, lastlj^, him who now survives them 
all in a green old age, still devoted to the quiet duties of a prac- 
tising jurist, the best reproduction, in our day at least, of an 
English barrister, — Sidney Bartlett.

The asterisk denotes the deceased. 
The election of Mayor for 1845 was more 
than in any former year. There were not less 



warmly contested 
than eight several 



280 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twentj'-flrst 
of February, Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the mean time, from January to Februar}^ 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 Citv Council ; and on the twent3-second 
of November he died, being the first Maj'or who has died in office 
since the organization of the cit}' government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quinc}', 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. Quincy. 

In 1851 Benjamin Seaver, having already been elected an Alder- 
man of the city for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for said 
year. At the commencement of the ensuing municipal year, 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of 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 G-aston was certified, 
by the returns 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 
city, a recount of all the ballots cast at said election v^as demanded 
and made ; and it appearing therefrom that Henry L. Pierce had 
79 plurality, he was declared dulj^ elected Mayor for the year 1873. 

In 1873 Herny L. Pierce, Ma3'or of the cit}', vras 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."

In 1879 Benjamin Pope died while in office. 

In 1880 George E. Bell died wliile 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 Cit}' Charter, which provided 
for the annual election of tivelve 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 twelftli 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- 
ingl}' the original ballots cast in the several precincts on the 
above date, which had been duly returned to the City Clerk, were 



282 MUNICIPAL EEGISTEK. 

counted by a committee of the Board of Aldermen of 1880, ap- 
pointed for the examination of the returns of votes the day preced- 
ing said election. The candidates whose votes were recounted 
were C3'rus S. Haldeman, James J. Flynn, 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 Flynn. 

T he result of this examination having been printed, together 
with the results as certiiied by the precinct officers, it was found 
difHcult, upon an analysis and scrutiny thereof, and a comparison 
of them with the votes cast for Mayor and for Street Commis- 
sioner, to account for this determination. 

Accordingl}' , 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 verif}' the result above reached. A contest for the seat 
of James J. Flj'nn was also made b^^ 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 they, after 
a very careful scrutin}^ and verification of the ballots, reported 
that William Frost was entitled to the seat held by James J. Fl^'nn. 
There were two minorit}' reports on this subject ; but the Board of 
Aldermen, bj^ a large vote, sustained the views of the majority, 
and awarded the seat to Mr. Frost. 

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

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

At the municipal election, December 13, 1881, the numbers of 
ballots for Aldermen, as returned by the precinct oflficers, were 
ver}' close between the two persons who appeared from said re- 
turns to have been elected, and the two persons having the next 
highest number of ballots. A recount of the ballots cast for these 
persons was demanded, and was made b}^ a committee of the Board 
of Aldermen of 1881, who reported that Benjamin F. Anthony had 



ALDERMEN. 283 

20,085, and Charles V. Whitten had 19,857, and they were 
declared to have been chosen over William Frost, who had 19,803, 
and Paul H. Kendricken, who had 19,759. 

An analysis of the particulars of this recount satisfied Mr. Frost 
and his friends that some error had been made in this result. Ac- 
cordingly, upon the inauguration of the Board of Aldermen in 1882, 
Mr. Frost contested the seat of Mr. Whitten, and called for a re- 
examination of the ballots cast for Mr. Whitten and himself. 
Such examination was made by a new committee, which reported, 
January 17th, that William Frost had 19,861, and Charles V. 
Whitten had 19,825, which brought the result very close to the 
precinct officers' returns, which were as follows : William Frost, 
19,856 ; Charles V. Whitten, 19,830. On January 19, 1882, the 
seat was awarded to Mr. Frost. 

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

Nahura M.Morrison, resigned Mar. 16, 1882, and was appointed 
Deputy Inspector of Buildings. 

There have been the following 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 hoar 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 bj^ 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. 

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, therebj' pre- 
venthig 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 

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



286 MUisriciPAi. register. 

meeting which was illegall}^ 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 
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 honafide^ 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 b}' 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, Januarj'' 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 tlie 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. 



OOMMON^ OOUKCIL. 287 

The twelfth, January 6, 1870, vacated the seat of a member re- 
turned from Ward 13, for tlie 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, Januar}^ 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 7, for the same reason. 

The lifteenth 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 b_y 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 dul}' 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 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, b3'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 wai'd, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The twentieth, Dec. 27, 1880 (see records of Board of Aldermem 
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, 



288 MUiaCIPAL REGISTER. 

instead of there being a tie vote for a third member from said ward, 
three members were dul}' chosen. A peculiar interest is attached to 
the case in "Ward 13 from two facts, — firsts that some of the ballots 
undoubtedl}^ 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 duly elected. [See Cit}' Doc. 54 of 1881.]
