ter 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 3d Jan., 1870 (St. 1869, c. 349; 
accepted 22d June) . Charlestown was founded 
4th July, 1629; incorporated as a city in 1847 
(St. 1847, c. 29) ; annexed to Boston, 5th Jan.,

A CODIFICATION 

OF THE 

CITY CHARTER OF 1854,

of Boston was passed February 23, 1822, and adopted by the citizens of 
Boston, March i, 1822. It is chapter 110 of the acts of 1821. The 
present city charter, being a revision of the former one, Avas passed April 
29, 1854, and adopted by the citizens, November 13, 1854. It is chapter 
448 of the acts of 1854. The charter herewith presented is a codifica- 
tion of the original enactment of 1854, and of the general and special 
acts since then adopted. The sections in pica are unchanged from 
the text of 1854, except §§ 25 and 60. Words in italics show verbal 
changes. Sections in small pica give the presumed state of the charter 
as afi"ected by subsequent legislation of 1879, 1880, 1881, and 1882.]

possession 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 accompanying

[The above are appointed by the Board of Fire Commis-

A constant watch is kept at the head-quarters. City Hall, night and 
day, by the operators. Each operator has assigned to him certain hours 
of duty, during which time he is responsible 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 con- 



122 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

nected 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 re- 
lieved 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. 

Alai'ms are ti-ansmittedtothe Central Office, from the Signal Stations, 
or Boxes, by pulling a slide in the box. The police-officers and one 
other person resident near each station have keys to the boxes. There 
are 329 fire-alarm boxes in connection with the head-quarters, num- 
bered variously from 2 to 812. Thirty-two 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 fi'om 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 required, alarms are sounded 
by striking twelve blows three times, thus : 12 — 12 — 12. 

Beturn 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 and Ladder No. One, 15 — 1 — 1. 
Hook and 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 a fire 
at Deer Island ; 198 indicates a call from Chelsea for assistance ; 22 in- 
dicates no school ; eleven blows indicates Police call. 

The Meridian Bells. — Fifty-one bells, one hundred and one 
gongs, ^forty-nine tappers, twenty-four box gongs, and ten vibra- 
tors, at theii" various locations on churches, school-houses, in engine- 
houses, and R.R. depots, are struck fron the Fire-Alarm office precisely 
at noon (Standard time), every day. Correct time is furnished by 
telegraph from Cambridge Observatory, so that absolute accuracy is 
secured.

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 entrj^ 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, — 



222 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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

men added, — Robert Keayne and John Newgate. 

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

Oct. 16, 1637. — Eleven chosen: ten reelected, and William

SELECTMEN. 



223 



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

Dec. 26, 1645. — Winthrop, Hibbens, Gibbons, Colborn, Hill, 
Eliot, and Pen reelected ; Oliver and E. T^^ng dropped ; Eobert 
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 3'ear ensuing, though occasionally this 
number was exceeded.

236 MUITICIPAL REGISTER. 

The election of Mayor for 1845 was more warmly contested 
than in any former year. There were not less than eight several 
ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twent3"-flrst 
of Febriiarj^, Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the meantime, from January to Februai'y 27, 1845, "William 
Parker, one of the Aldermen, having been elected Chairman of the 
Board of Aldermen, performed the duties of Maj'or. 

On the sixth of October, Thomas A. Davis, being in declining 
health, resigned the office of Ma^'or, which resignation, however, 
vras not accepted by the City Council ; and on the twenty-second 
of November he died, being the only Mayor who has died in office 
since the organization of the cit^' government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quincy, Jr., was elected 
Mayor by the Citj^ 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 jea.i\ 1852, 
he resigned as an Alderman, and accepted the office of Mayor. 

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

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

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

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

ALDERMEN. 

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

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, ar^l was chosen one of the 
Principal Assessors. 

In 1853 L3'man Perry, who had been elected, died before his 
qualification. ' 

In 1855 John M. Clark resigned, and was appointed Slieriff" of 
Suff"olk 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 
plurality' 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, 



238 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

reported, Dec. 27, that Mr. Fljun 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. Flj-nu, 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. Woollej^ Haldeman, and Fl^^nn, sitting members, 
and Messrs. "William Frost, John Thompson, and George 8. Dexter, 
standing next highest on the precinct returns ; another was the 
fact that man}^ 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 Boai*d 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 pluralit}^ of 14 ; and that in 

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

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

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 plainly 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.

and was appointed clerk in the City Collector's Department. 

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 hour at 
which the voters were notified it would be closed was a violation 
of the rights of the voters." 

The second. May 7, 1835, vacated the seats of the members of 
Ward 3, who were returned as having been elected at an adjourned 
meeting, December 11, 1834, on the ground of irregular proceed- 
ing, to render the whole number of votes certain by taking the high- 
est number of votes for candidates on each opposing ticket, ad- 
journment of the meeting by the sole authority of the Warden, and 
other 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. 



242 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

The fourth, Februarj^ 9, 1843, vacated the seats of three mem- 
bers from Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned meeting, 
December 14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident can- 
didates (after having been first thrown out by the ward officers) ' 
were counted at the annual election, December 12, thereby pre- 
venting the choice of two other candidates, who, by excluding the 
said four votes, were by the decision of the Council declared 
elected, leaving one 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 bona fide, and no other informality was apparent, 
•and as this custom of supplementary elections had been in vogue 
for twenty years, the members thus elected were 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 municip.il 
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. 

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



COMMON COUNCIL. 243 

The tentb, 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 meethig, 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.] 

The eleventh, January 16, 1868, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 10, because by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The twelfth, January 6, 1870, vacated the seat of a member re- 
turned from Ward 13, for the same reason as recited above. 

The thirteenth, January 5, 1871, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 15, for the same reason. 

The fourteenth, January 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a member 
returned fi'om Ward 7, for the same reason. 

The fifteenth occurred as follows : — 

At the annual municipal election ii;i 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 oflScers 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 in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The seventeenth, January 14, 1875, vacated the seat of a mem- 
ber from Ward 1, because, by the count of the original ballots cast 
in said ward, it appeared that another person was elected. 

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



244 MUNICIPAL EEaiSTEE. 

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

The twentieth, Dec. 27, 1880 (see records of Board of Aldermen 
of said date) , vacated the seats of one member from each of the 
following-named wards, viz., 3, 13, 16, and 19, because!, from an 
examination of the original ballots cast in said wards, it appeared 
that other persons were chosen. From an examination made at the 
same time of the original ballots cast in "Ward 5, it appeared that, 
instead of there being a tie vote for a third member from said ward, 
three members were duly chosen. 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.]

APPENDIX. 



ALDERMANIC DISTRICTS. 

By an Act approved May 21, 1884, being Chapter 250 of 
the Acts of 1884, the City of Boston is divided into twelve 
districts, each of said Districts to choose one member of the 
Board of Aldermen. This act repeals the first five lines of 
Section 19 of the City Charter. 

Following is the text of the aforesaid act :■ — 

Concerning the Election of Aldermen in the City of Boston. 

Section 1. The city of Boston is hereby divided into twelve alder- 
manic districts, and wards one and two shall constitute one district, to be 
known as the first aldermanic district ; wards three, four and five shall 
constitute one district, to be known as the second-aldermanic district ; 
wards six, seven and eight shall constitute one district, to be known as 
the third aldermanic district ; wards nine and ten shall constitute one 
district, to be known as the fourth aldermanic district ; wards eleven and 
sixteen shall constitute one district, to be known as the fifth aldermanic 
district ; wards twelve and thirteen shall constitute one district, to be 
known as the sixth aldermanic district ; wards fourteen and fifteen shall 
constitute one district, to be known as the seventh aldermanic district ; 
wards seventeen and eighteen shall constitute one district, to be known 
as the eighth aldermanic district ; wards nineteen and twenty-two shall 
constitute one district, to be known as the ninth aldermanic district; 
wards twenty and twenty-one shall constitute one district, to be known 
as the tenth aldermanic district ; wards twenty-three and twenty-five 
shall constitute one district, to be known as the eleventh aldermanic 
district ; and ward twenty-four shall constitute one district, to be known 
as the twelfth aldermanic district. 

Sect. 2. It shall be the duty of the city council after any new divi- 
sion of said city into wards, to cause a new division of the city to be 
made into twelve aldermanic districts, in such manner as to include in 
such districts whole and contiguous wards (except so far as the same 
may be separated by natural water-channels connected by bridge or 
bridges) and an equal number of voters and inhabitants as nearly as 



308 MUI^ICIPAL REGISTER. 

convenience permits, and until such new division be made the districts 
shall remain as established by this act. 

Sect. 3. The qualified voters of each of said aldermanic districts 
shall, at the annual municipal election, be called upon to give in their 
votes for one able and discreet person, being a legal voter and an inhab- 
itant of the district, to be a member of the board of aldei'men for the 
ensuing year ; and all such votes so given shall be sorted, counted, declared 
and recorded, and returns thereof made to the city clerk, in the same 
manner as is now provided by law for the choice of aldermen of said 
city. Whereupon the same proceedings shall be had to ascertain and 
determine the person chosen as alderman for each district, as are now 
provided by law in regard to the choice of aldermen. And a new elec- 
tion shall be ordered in any such district, in case of any failure by such 
district to elect an alderman as herein provided, or in case of any 
vacancy by death, resignation or other cause ; and each alderman so 
chosen shall be duly notified as is now provided by law. 

Sect. 4. All acts and parts of acts inconsistent herewith are hereby 
repealed. 

Sect. 5. This act shall take eflfect upon its passage.
