SEAL OF THE CITY. 

By Chapter 7, Section 1, Revised Ordinances, 
passed December 29, 1882, it is provided that " the 
seal of the city shall bear a view of the city and the 
inscription: 'Sicut patkibus sitDeus nobis. Bos- 

TONIA CONDITA A.D. 1G30. CiVITATIS EEGIMINE 

DONATA A.D. 1822.' " A representation of the seal, 
as at present and for many years past in use, is given 
below. [For penalty of unauthorized use of city seal, 
see Pub. Stat. c. 205, § 6.] 




The " Ordinance to Establish the City Seal," passed 
Jan. 2, 1823, provided as follows: — "That the design 
hereto annexed, as sketched by John R. Penniman, 
giving a view of the city, be the city seal* that the

Deus nobis ' ; and that the inscription be as follows, 
to wit: 'BosTONiA condita A.D. 1630. Civitatis 
KEGMMiNE DONATA A.D. 1822.'" The Original sketch 
by Mr. Penniman was discovered by the present City 
Treasurer among the papers of his department when 
he took 2^ossession in 1881. The design has been 
used since upon certain documents, and now appears 
on the treasury checks. A fac-simile of the sketch is 
presented in the preceding plate.

BRIDGES. 



[Rev. Ord., Chap. 40.] 

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

mediately to the care and inspection of the City Engineer,

condition and requirements. [See City Doc. No. 22 for 
1879.] 

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

pensation as the City Council from time to time determine.

A constant watch is kept at the head-quarters, City Hall, 
night and day, by the operators. Euch operator has assigned 
to him certain hours of duty, during which time he is respon- 
sible for the correct working of the apparatus in giving alarms, 
and all testing of the circuits and other details pertaining to 
the service. An automatic arrangement is connected with 
the receiving apparatus, by which assistance may be called 
from the sleeping apartments, if at any time the operator 
should be suddenly incapacitated by illness from performing 
his duties. No operator is permitted to sleep during his 
watch, unless expressly relieved by some one else, and by 
consent of the Superintendent. 

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. 



FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 139 

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. There are 319 fire-alarm boxes in 
connection with the head-quarters, numbered variously from 
2 to 746. Seven of these boxes are supplied with a "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. 

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

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 is requii'ed, alarms 
are sounded by striking twelve blows three times, thus : 
12 — 12—12. 

Return Signal. — Notice is 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 
return to their quarters. 

In cases where Hook and Ladder Companies only, are 
wanted, the signal is given by striking fifteen blows once, 
with the number of the Company struck twice, thus : Hook 
& Ladder No. One, 15 — 1 — 1. Hook & Ladder No. 
Four, 15 — 4 — 4. 

If more than one Hook & Ladder Company is wanted, the 
signal is given thus : Hook & Ladder One and Three, 15 — 

1 — 1 — 3 — 3. Hook & Ladder Two and Four, 15 — 2 — 

2 — 4 — 4. 

Of other signals given on the fire-alarm bells, 189 indicates 
fire at Deer Island ; 198 indicates a call from Chelsea for 
assistance ; 22 indicates no School ; eleven blows indicates 
Police Call.

SELECTMEN 

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

Prior to the date when the seven Selectmen became regular offi- 
cers, similar officials had served. The earliest entr}' preserved in 
the Town Records is dated Sept. 1, 1634. We cannot, therefore, 
learn w^hen the custom began of choosing selectmen, or townsmen. 
We find at that date, however, a board of ten citizens in office, — 



SELECTMEN. 247 

John Winthrop, William Coddington, John Underhill, Thomas 
Oliver, Thomas Leverett, Giles Firmin, John Coggeshall, William 
Peirce, Robert Harding, and William Brenton.

MimiCIPAIi EEGISTEK. 



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 
Keaj^ne 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 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.

ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twenty-first 
of February, Thomas A Davis was elected. 

In the meantime, from January to February 27, 1845, William 
Parker, one of the Aldermen, having been elected Chairman of the 
Board of Aldermen, performed the duties of Mayor. 

On the sixth of October, Thomas A. Davis, being in declining 
health, resigned the office of Maj'or, which resignation, however, 
was not accepted by the City Council ; and on the twenty-second 
of November he died, being the first Ma3'or who has died in office 
since the organization of the city government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quincy, Jr., was elected 
Mayor by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. Ben- 
son Leavitt, one of the Board of Aldermen, acted as Chairman of 
the Board in the interval between the death of Mr. Davis and the 
election of Mr. Quincy. 

In 1851 Benjamin Seaver, having already been elected an Alder- 
man of the city for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for said 
3'ear. At the commencement of the ensuing municipal 3^ear, 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of Mayor. 

The election of Ma3'or for 1854 was continued through three 
ballotings, from December 12, 1853, to January 9, 1854. In the 
meantime the duties of Ma3^or were performed by Benjamin L. 
Allen, Chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

At the municipal election, in 1872, William Gaston was certified, 
by the returns of the officers of the several wards, to have been 
elected Ma3'or of the city for the next municipal term. But upon 
charges of alleged fraudulent practices in one of the wards of the 
city, a recount of all the ballots cast at said election was demanded 
and made ; and it appearing therefrom that Henr3' L. Pierce had 
79 plurality, he was declared duly elected Ma3'or for the year 1873. 

In 1873 Henry L. Pierce, Mayor of the cit3', was elected a mem- 
ber of the 43d Congress from the Third Massachusetts District, in 
place of William Whiting, deceased. Mr. Pierce resigned his office 
as Ma3'or on November 29, and occupied his seat in Congress on 
December 1, 1873. 

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



ALDERMEN. 261 



ALDERMEN. 

Nathaniel P. Eussell, Daniel Baxter, Joseph H. Dorr, reelected ; 
and Thomas C. Wales and Redford Webster, elected 1825, de- 
clined. 

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 chosen one of the 
Principal Assessors. 

In 1853 Lyman Perry, who had been elected, died before his 
qualification. 

In 1855 John M. Clark resigned, and was appointed Sheriff of 
Suffolk County. 

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, Dec. 14, 1880, the returns of the pre- 
cinct officers showed William Frost to be elected Alderman by a 
pluralitj^ of fifteen votes over James J. Flynn, and a ver}^ slight 
difference in the number of ballots cast for other candidates who 
failed of election. A recount of the ballots cast for Mayor 
and Aldermen was thereupon demanded in legal form. A com- 
mittee of the Board of 1880, having made the recount, 



262 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

reported, Dec. 27, that Mr. Flynn was elected having received 
a plurality of votes over Mr. Frost ; and Mr. Flynn took the 
seat at the organization of the Board of 1881. Mr. Frost gave 
notice of his intention to contest the seat of Mr. Flynn, and also 
of Mr. Haldeman who had received the next greatest number of 
votes. A committee of the Board of 1881 was appointed to con- 
sider the matter, and reported, March 14, 1881 (City Document 
No. 38, of 1881), the majority declaring Mr. Frost entitled to the 
seat held b}^ Mr. Flynn, with two minority reports. The majority 
report was accepted, March 21, and Mr. Frost took the seat. One 
peculiar incident in this case was the reception of a numerously 
signed petition asking the Board to examine and recount the bal- 
lots for Messrs. Woolley, Haldeman, and Flynn, sitting members, 
and Messrs. William Frost, John Thompson, and George S. Dexter, 
standing next highest on the precinct returns ; another was the 
fact that many ballots were either mislaid or stolen, in Precinct 3 
of "Ward 13, on election day. 

At the municipal election, Dec. 13, 1881, the returns of the pre- 
cinct officers showed William Frost to be elected Alderman by a 
plurality of 154 votes over Charles V. Whitten. On petition, in 
due legal form, a committee of the Board of 1881 made a recount 
of the ballots cast for Mayor and Aldermen, and reported that Mr. 
Whitten was elected over Mr. Frost, and Mr. Whitten took the 
seat. Mr. Frost contested the seat of Mr. Whitten, and called 
for a reexamination of the ballots cast. Such examination was 
made by a new committee, which reported, January 17, that 
William Frost had 19,861, and Charles V. Whitten had 19,825. 
On Januar}^ 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. 

At the municipal election, Dec. 12, 1882, the returns of the pre- 
cinct officers showed Edwin F. Leighton to be elected Alderman by 
a plurality of 102 votes over Joseph Caldwell. On petition in due 
legal form, a committee of the Board of 1882 recounted the ballots 
cast for these two candidates, and reported, Dec. 26, that Joseph 
Caldwell appeared to be chosen by a plurality of 14 ; and that in 

addition there were found 3 ballots for " Caldwell," 1 for 

" E. F. Leighton," 18 for " F. Leighton," and 11 for" Leigh- 



AJLDEEMEN. 263 

ton ; " also, that, " with the exception of the name ' E. F. Leighton,' 
which was written, the abbreviated names above recited were plainly 
legible beyond the edges of ' stickers,' or ' pasters,' which covered 
and concealed the Christian names of Messrs. Caldwell and Leighton, 
those stickers having been pasted upon an adjoining name, but being 
of such length as to partly cover the names in question." The com- 
mittee further reported that there was plainl^^ no intent to cancel the 
names over which the stickers extended. Mr. Caldwell, who was 
a member of the Board of 1882, thereupon stated his intention of 
not appearing to claim a seat in the Board of 1883, and introduced 
an order, which was passed, declaring that, in the opinion of the 
Board, the abbreviated ballots should be credited to Mr. Leighton. 
The Board of 1883, on petition of Mr. Leighton, awarded him the 
seat at the first meeting, Jan. 1.

There have been the following successfully contested elections : — 

The first, February 22, 1830, vacated the seat of a member from

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 b}- the sole authority of the Warden, and 
other irregularities, at the annual election, December 8. 

The third case, March 7, 1839, vacated the seats of three mem- 
bers of Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters, 
sufficient to affect the choice, voted at the polls.

bers from Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned meeting, 
December 14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident can- 
didates (after having been first thrown out by the ward officers) ' 
were counted at the annual election, December 12, thereby pre- 
venting the choice of two other candidates, who, by excluding the

said four votes, were by the decision of the Council declared 
elected, leaving one vacancy. 

The fifth, February 27, 1851, vacated the seats of two members 
from Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an adjourned 
meeting which was 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 
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 boncijide, and no other informality was apparent, 
and as this custom of supplementar}^ elections had been in vogue 
for twenty years, the members thus elected were by the vote of the 
Common Council declared entitled to their seats. 

The eighth, March 19, 1863, in accordance with the Report of 
the Committee on Elections, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 3, on the ground that at the time of his election he was not 
an inhabitant of that ward. Before a decision was reached on this 
point the member in question resigned. 

The ninth, April 9, 1863, vacated the seats of the entire delega- 
tion from Ward 10, on the ground that more votes were returned 
than there were persons who voted in that ward at the municipal 
election, — occasioned by mistake, probably, in the counting of the 
ballots, — the variation being so great as to affect the election of 
the whole delegation. At the subsequent trial the same members 
were again returned to the Common Council. 

The tenth, 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 the original warrant. 
At a subsequent election the same member was returned to the 
Common Council. [See City Doc. No. 12 for 1867.] 



coMMOiir COUNCIL. 267 

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, Januarj^ 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, January 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 7, for the same reason. 

The fifteenth occurred as follows : — 

At the annual municipal election in 1871 Frederick S. Risteen 
was declared elected as a member from Ward 10. This election 
was contested by J. Q. A. Brackett, and a recount of the original 
ballots showed that said Brackett was elected by a plurality of one 
ballot over F. S. Risteen, and said Brackett was accordingly de- 
clared by the Common Council of 1872 to be entitled to the seat. 
Subsequently Mr. Risteen contested this decision, on the ground 
that his name was erased from a number of ballots by some one of 
the ward officers after said ballots were deposited by the voters. 
After a protracted inquiry the Common Council sustained this 
view of the case, and Mr. Risteen was again returned to his former 
seat, and was again duly qualified on February 1, 1872. [See 
City Doc. No. 18 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 \\\ 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, bj^the count of the original ballots cast 
in said ward, it appeared that another person was elected. 

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

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

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 



268 MXn^ICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 wai'd, 
three members were duly chosen. Peculiar features of the case in 
Ward 13 are, 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 that the Committee of the Board of Aldermen 
of 1880, who examined the ballots for Common Council in that 
ward, erroneously reported that the sitting member had been duly 
elected. [See City Doc. 54 of 1881.]
