The establishment of the town of Boston dates 
from the passage of the order of the Court of 
Assistants on the 17th September (7th, O. S.), 
1630, " that Trimomitain shall be called Boston." 
The first city government was organized on the 
1st of May, 1822 (St. 1821, c. 110). Roxbury 
was first recognized by the Court of Assistants 
as a town on the 8th Oct., 1630. It was incor- 
porated as a city on the 12th March, 1846 (St. 1816, 
c. 95), and annexed to Boston 6th Jan., 1868 
(St. 1867, c. 359; accepted 9th Sept.). Dorches- 
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. 319; 
accepted 22d June). Charlestown was founded 
lith July, 1629; incorporated as a city in 1847 
(St. 1847, c. 29) ; annexed to Boston, 5th Jan., 
1874 (St. 1873, c. 286; accepted, 7th Oct.). 
West Roxbury was incorporated as a town on 
the 24th March, 1851 (St. 1851, c. 250); 
annexed to Boston on 5th Jan., 1874 (St. 
1873, c. 314; accepted, 7th Oct.). Brighton 
was incorporated as a town in 1806 (St. 1806, 
c. 65) ; annexed to Boston on the 5th Jan., 
1874 (St. 1873, c. 303; accepted, 7th Oct.). 



A CODIFICATION 

OF THE 

CITY CHARTER OF 1854 

AND STATUTES AFFECTING THE SAME. 



The first act of the Legislatiu'e of Massachusetts establishing the 
City of Boston was passed Februaiy 23, 1822, and adopted by the citi- 
zens of Boston, March 4, 1822. It is chapter 110 of the acts of 1821. 
The present city charter, being a revision of the former one, was 
passed April 29, 1854, and adopted by the citizens, November 13, 
1854. It is chapter .448 of the acts of 1854. The charter herewith 
presented is a codification of tlie original enactment of 1854 and the 
general and special acts since then adoiJted The sections in pica 
are unchanged from the text of 1854, except §§ 25 and 60. Words 
in italics sliow verbal changes. Sections in small pica give the pre- 
sumed state of the charter as affected by subsequent legislation. 

This codification includes tlie legislation of 1884. The " Act to 
Amend the Charter of the City of Boston " (Stat. 1885, chap. 266, 
approved May 27) is not included, because of the lack, at this date, 
of authoritative judicial construction of the effect of its provisions 
upon the statutes of which it is amendatory. The text of this act is 
given entire on page 43 et seq., together with the " Act to limit the 
Municipal Debt and the rate of Taxation in the City of Boston " 
(Stat. 1885, chap. 178, approved April 17). Marginal references to 
these acts indicate sections of the charter which they are supposed 
to affect.

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 

PATRIBUS SIT DEU8 NOBIS. BOSTONIA CONDITA A.D. 1630. 

CiviTATis REGiMiNE DONATA A.D. 1822.'" A representa- 
tion 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 motto be as follows, to 
wit : ' SicuT PATRIBUS SIT DEUS NOBIS ' ; and that the inscrip- 
tion be as follows, to wit: 'Bostonia condita A.D. 1630. 
CiviTATis REGiMiNE DON ATA A.D. 1822.'" The design by 
Mr. Penniman now appears on the treasury checks, and a 
fac-simile of the original sketch is given in the Municipal 
Register of 1883 and 1884.

Collector for the non-payment of taxes or other assessments 
thereon, who claims that he is entitled to have the considera- 
tion paid by him for the Collector's deed with the interest 
thereon, refunded to him, by reason of error, omission, or 
informality in the proceedings of assessment or sale, may 
apply by petition to the said committee to have such consid- 
eration and interest paid to him ; and if said committee

alleges that there was an error, omission, or informality in 
the proceedings of assessment or sale, so that he is legally 
entitled to have the title of the city to such real estate relin- 
quished to him, he may apply therefor by petition to the 
said committee, who may determine that such title shall be 
relinquished upon such terras and conditions as they adjudge 
to be just and comformable to law ; and, upon receiving their 
certificate that such title ought to be relinquished, the Mayor 
shall execute in behalf of the city a proper deed of release 
to the petitioner.

covered by such bill were incurred, nor shall he approve any 
bills, as above specified, for refreshments furnished members

writing of the member incurring the same, is presented 
therewith ; and he is further directed to report monthly, in 
print, the names of the members incurring such bills, and the

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 i-esponsible 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- 
nected with the receiving a^jparatus, 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 



132 MUNICIPAL EEGISTER. 

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 v?hich it originates, and all other necessary information. 

Alarms are transmitted to the Central Office, from the Signal Stations, 
or Boxes, by pulling a slide in the box. The police-officers and one 
other person resident near each station have keys to the boxes. There 
are 347 fire-alarm boxes in connection with the head-quarters, num- 
bered variously from 2 to 812. Fifty-three 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 twice, fol- 
lowed by the box number. 

In cases where the entire department is required, alarms are sounded 
by striking twelve blows twice, followed by the box number. 

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, 16 — 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. — Forty-eight bells, one hundred and one 
gongs, forty-two tappers, twenty-nine box gongs, and six vibra- 
tors, at their various locations on churches, school-houses, in engine- 
houses, and R.R. depots, are struck from the Fire-Alarm office precisely 
at noon (Standard time) , every day. Correct time is furnished by tele- 
graph from Cambridge Observatory, so that absolute accuracy is 
secured.

By an order of the Boax'd of Aldermen, approved Feb. 25, 1875, the

members to examine the present system of sewerage in this city,

and Charles F. Folsom, M.D., of Boston, who submitted their report 
(City Doc. No. 8 of 1876), recommending the construction of intercept- 
ing sewei's, at a cost of over $6,000,000. On July 17, 1876, the sum of 
$40,000 was appropriated by the City Council for the purpose of making 
preliminary surveys for routes to Moon Island and to Castle Island. 

In 1877 the Joint Special Committee upon this subject reported (City

and on August 9, 1877 a loan of $3,713,000 was authorized to meet the 
expense of constructing a large intercepting sewer from Charles river 
across the city, in a southerly direction, to Moon Island. A further 
sum of $1,500,000 was appropriated for this object in May, 1882. On

mit the works being put in operation. (See City Doc. 54 of 1885.)

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 oflice, — 



SELECTMEN. 235

Oliver, Thomas Leverett, Giles Firmin, John Coggeshall, William 
Peiree, Robert Harding, and William Brenton.

236 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



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

Dec. 26, 1645. — "Wiathrop, Hibbens, Gibbons, Colborn, Hill, 
Eliot, and Pen reelected ; Oliver and E. Tyng dropped ; Robert 
Keayne and Thomas Fowle added. 



No election is recorded in 1646, though all but Fowle were 
serving Feb. 25, 1646-47. Probably some change had taken 
place about this time, as March 13, 1646-47, we find a board of 
seven acting, and the same seven were chosen five 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.

250 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

The election of Mayor for 1845 was more warmly contested 
than in any former year. There were hot less than eight several 
ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twent^^-first ' 
of Febriiarj^ 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 tweiit}'- 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 Quinc}', Jr., was elected 
Mayor bj' the Cit^' 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 Mayor. 

The election of Ma^'or 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 b}- Benjamin L. 
Allen, Chairman of the Board of Aldermen. 

At the municipal election, in 1872, William Gaston was certiQed, 
by the returns of the officers of the several wards, to have been 
elected Ma^-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 ; audit appearing therefrom that Henry L. Pierce had 
79 plurality, he was declared da\y elected Ma3'or for the year 1873. 

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

The duties of the Maj'or 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." 



ALDEEMEN". 251 



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 Fennellj 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 Tiraoth}'' 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 
pluralit}' 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 



252 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

reported, Dec. 27, that Mr. Flj^nn was elected, having received 
a plurality of votes over Mr. Frost ; and Mr. Fh'nn took the 
seat at the organization of the Board of 1881. Mr. Frost gave 
notice of his intention to contest the seat of Mr. Fh'nn, 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 hy Mr. Flynn, with two minorit}' 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 Maj'or 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 pluralit}'' 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- 



aldekme:n'. 253 

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.

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



256 MIOTICIPAL EEGISTEK. 

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 b}^ 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, Februar}' 3, 1853, in accordance with the Report 
of the Committee on Elections, vacated the seats of three members 
from Ward 11, on the ground that the Mayor and Aldermen had 
no right to issue warrants for election of members of the Common 
Council, after the annual election, and before the organization of 
the government elect. But inasmuch as the elections in question 
were conducted bond fide, and no other informality was apparent, 
and as this custom of supplementary elections had been in vogue 
for twenty years, the members thus elected were bj' 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 inistake, probabl}', in the counting of the

coMMOisr coimciL. 257 

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, Januar}^ 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.] 

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 the same reason as recited above. 

TJie 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 b}' 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 b}- some one of 
the ward officers after said ballots were deposited by the voters. 
After a protracted inquiry the Common Council sustained this 
view of the case, and Mr. Risteen was again returned to his former 
seat, and was again duly qualified on February 1, 1872. [See 
City Doc. No. 18 for 1872.] 

The sixteenth, January 4, 1874, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, because, by the count of the original bal- 
lots cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was ciiosen. 

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. 



258 MUKIOrPAL REGISTER. 

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 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 tlie ballots for Common Council in that 
ward, erroneously reported that the sitting member had been duly 
elected. [See City Doc. 54 of 1881.]
