The Municipal Register was first issued in 1841, in which year it 
appeared as a City Document of 104 pages. Its contents were : Rules 
and Orders of the Common Council ; Joint Rules ; Ordinances of the 
City ; Statutes of the Commonwealth relating to the City ; City Govern- 
ment of 1841, with Committees ; Departments (comprising at that time 
the Treasury ; Law ; Police ; Health ; Public Land and Buildings, Lamps 
and Bridges ; Fire ; Public Charitable Institutions) ; Public Schools, and 
a list of the Ward Officers. From that date to the present time the 
Municipal Register has been published annually. In 1848 a list of 
members of preceding city governments was added, with a necrologi- 
cal record. During a number of years it was also customary to publish 
in this volume the ordinances enacted during the year preceding, and 
the special statutes relating to the City of Boston. In 1876 statistics 
of registration and voting made their appearance, and since 1879 these 
have been given in tabulated form. In 1883 the custom of publishing 
portraits of the Mayor and presiding officers of the two branches of the 
City Council was established. 



The establishment of the town of Boston dates 
from the passage of the order of the Court of 
Assistants on the 17th September (7th, O. S.), 
1630, "that Trimountain shall be called Boston." 
The first city government was organized on the 
1st of May, 1822 (St. 1821, c. 110). Eoxbury 
was first recognized by the Court of Assistants 
as a town on the 8th Oct., 1630. It was incor- 
porated as a city on the 12th March, 1846 (St. 1846, 
c. 95), and annexed to Boston 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. 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., 
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.).

AMEJ^DtyEESTTS OF 1885. 



The first act of the Legislature of Massachusetts establishing the 
City of Boston was passed February 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 the original enactment of 1854 and 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 pre- 
sumed state of the charter as affected by subsequent legislation. 

This codification includes the legislation of 1884. The " Act to 
Amend the Charter of the City of Boston" (Stat. 1885, chap. 266, 
is not included, but is given entire on page 42 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). Marginal references 
to these acts indicate sections of the charter which they are sup- 
posed to affect.

unless objection is made. 

Rule 20. No ordinance, and no order or resolution im-

vious question may be demanded upon an amendment, which 
motion shall be decided without debate. When one of these 
motions has been made, none of the others, inferior to it in 
precedence, shall be made, and, in proceeding to vote,

74 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

on a motion to close debate at a specified time, or on a mo- 
tion to lay on the table, or take from the table, shall not

three minutes. In such debate, however, the merits of the 
main question shall not be discussed. 

Rule 28. Any member may require the division of a 
question when the sense will admit of it.

out leave of the Council. 

Rule 31. The previous question shall be put in the fol-

report the result aloud to him. 

Rule 34. A motion that any pending vote shall be taken 
by yeas and nays, shall be in order at any time, and no 
debate shall be allowed thereon, but it shall be passed by 
the assent of one-fifth of the members present. 

Rule 35. After the announcement of a vote not taken 
by yeas and nays any member may move for a verification 
thereof by yeas and nays, and on such motion a debate of 
the original question, not exceeding five minutes, shall be 
permitted ; and the yeas and nays shall be taken, provided 
one-fifth of the members voting shall so require. 



RECONSIDERATION. 

Rule 36. "When a vote has been passed any member 
may move a reconsideration thereof at the same meeting, 
either immediately after the announcement of such vote, or 
whenever motions are in order ; or if any member, who is 
not shown by a yea and nay vote to have voted against the 
prevailing side, shall give notice to the Clerk before ten 
o'clock A.M. of the next day but one following that on 
which a meeting was held (except the final meeting of the

weeks), of his intention so to do, he may move a reconsider- 
ation at the next meeting at which said motion is reached in 
the order of proceedings. 

Rule 37. Debate on motions to reconsider shall be 
limited to thirty minutes, and no member shall speak more

ment takes effect. 



76 MUNICIPAL REGISTER.

Aldermen. 

Rule 40. In all elections by ballot the number of blanks 
cast shall be reported, but shall not be counted in the returns. 
Ballots cast for ineligible persons shall be counted and re-

next meeting. The anteroom and large committee-room on 
the east shall be subject to the same rules ; except that the 
President may allow committee-meetings to be held therein 
at times when the Council is not in session. The Clerk's 
room shall be assigned to the Clerk of the Common Council 
for occupancy and use. The anteroom between the Council 
Chamber and the Clerk's room shall be used durinsr the 
meetings of the Council to give access to the seats on the

All such votes of the committees shall be reported in detail 
once a month to the Auditing Committee hereinafter provided. 
All carriages shall be hired through the City Messenger, 
who shall obtain and verify the bills within twenty days 
from the date when they were incurred. When the Com- 
mon Council is in session at eleven P.M., the City Mes- 
senger is directed to provide carriages to convey members to 
their respective homes, if they so desire. The President is 
hereby authorized to incur bills for refreshments or carriage- 
hire while in the discharge of his official duties. The prices 
paid for all carriages hired under this rule shall be in conform- 
ity with the rates established by the Board of Police. All 
bills so incurred shall be charged to the Contingent Fund of the 
Common Council, and shall be audited, before presentation to 
the City Auditor, by a committee of three members of the 
Common Council. Said committee shall satisfy themselves of 
the correctness of such bills, both as to authority and amount, 
and may require evidence before approving them for pay- 
ment ; such audit shall be completed monthly, on or before 
the twenty-fifth day of the month, and no bill shall be con- 
sidered unless presented within three months of the date of 
incurring the same. 

The Auditing Committee shall report in print every three 
months, giving in detail the bills allowed and the votes 
authorizing the same.

Rule 45. No rule or order of the Council shall be dis- 
pensed with, altered, or repealed, unless two-thirds of the 
members present consent thereto.

Battery-man, James L. Gethins. 

The above are appointed by the Board of Fire Commis- 
sioners. 

A constant watch is kept at the head-quarters, City Hall, night and 
day, by the operators. Eacli 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- 
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 informa- 
tion. 

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 354 fire-alarm boxes in connection with the head-quarters, num- 
bered variously from 2 to 812. 

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, 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 



126 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

at Deer Island ; 198 indicates a call from Chelsea for assistance ; 22 in- 
dicates no school ; eleven blows indicates Police call. 

Meridian Bells, 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 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 entry 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, — 



SELECTMEN. 229

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

MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



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. Tyng dropped ; Robert 
Kea} T 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.

244 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

The election of Mayor for 1845 was more warmly contested 
than in any former 3*ear. There were not less than eight several 
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 tlie 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 b} r 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 city government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December, Josiah Quincj*, Jr., was elected 
Mayor b} r 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 Mayor. 

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

At the municipal election, in 1872, William Gaston was certified, 
by the returns of the officers of the several wards, to have been 
elected Mayor of 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 Henry L. Fierce had 
79 plurality, he was declared duly elected Mayor 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 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 P. Cutter, Chairman of the Board of 
Aldermen, who signed all official papers as " Acting Mayor." 



ALDERMEN". 245 



ALDERMEN. 

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

George Blake, reelected for 18 26, 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 L} T man 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. 

In 1885 Edwin F. Leighton 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} 7 of fifteen votes over James J. Fbynn, and a very 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, 



246 MUNICIPAL KEGISTER. 

reported, Dec. 27, that Mr. Flyun 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 by 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 19,8G1, and Charles V. Whitten had 19,825. 
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. 
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- 



ALDERMEN. 247 

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

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. 



250 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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, 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 vacanc}'. 

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 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 by the vote of the 
Common Council declared entitled to their seats. 

Tlie 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 

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

ballots, — the variation being so great as to affect the election of 
the whole delegation. At the subsequent trial the same members 
were again returned to the Common Council. 

The tenth, January 24, 1867, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 3, who was chosen at an adjourned meeting (held on account 
of a tie-vote at the regular meeting, Dec. 10, 1866), on the ground 
that the polls at said adjourned meeting were not kept open the 
same number of hours as were required 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, Januaiy 16, 1868, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 10, because by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward it appeared that another person was chosen. 

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

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

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

The fifteenth occurred as follows : — 

At the annual municipal election in 1871 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 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 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. 



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