The Rules and Orders of the Common Council, issued regularly 
from 1822 to 1,840, contain the annual register of the City Council and 
the City officers. The volume of 1822 comprises fifteen pages. In 1829 
it was ordered that the City charter be inserted. In 1830 the charter, 
the acts relating to Boston, and the ordinances occupied pp. 11-39 of 
the Rules. In 1832 an index was added. The Rules of 1840 contain 
eighty-five pages, and three pages of index, being similar to the Muni- 
cipal Register, so called, which was first issued in 1841, as a docu- 
ment of 104 pages. Its contents are : Rules and orders of the Common 
Council ; joint rules ; ordinances of the City ; statutes of the Common- 
wealth relating to the City ; City government 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 pub- 
lished annually. In 1843 a list of members of preceding City govern- 
ments was added, with a necrological record. As late as 1863 it was 
also customary to publish in this volume the latest ordinances and 
recent special statutes relating to the City of Boston. In 1851 a list 
of the annual orators was added; a map of the City in 1853. The rules 
of the Board of Aldermen were not inserted until 1853. In 1876 statistics 
of i*egistration 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 list of past city governments of Rox- 
bury and Charlestown was added in 1888. Corrections of the Municipal 
Register may be addressed to the City Clerk. 



The establishment of the Town of Boston dates 
from the passage of the order of the Court of 
Assistants on September 17 (7, O. S.), 1630, 
"that Trimontaine shalbe called Boston." The 
Town of Boston was always without a charter. 
The first City government was organized on 
May 1, 1822 (St. 1821, c. 110; accepted on March 
4, 1822) . Roxbury was first recognized as a Town 
by the Court of Assistants on October 8, 1630; 
it was incorporated as a City on March 12, 1846 
(St. 1846, c. 95; accepted on March 25, 1846), 
and annexed to Boston on January 6, 1868 (St. 
1867, c. 359; accepted on September 9, 1867). 
Dorchester was named by the Court of Assistants 
in the same order in which Boston was named; 
and it retained its Town organization until an- 
nexed to Boston on January 3, 1870 (St. 1869, 
c. 349; accepted on June 22, 1869). Charles- 
town was founded on July 4, 1629; incorporated 
as a City in 1847 (St. 1847, c. 29; accepted on 
March 10, 1847) ; annexed to Boston on January 
5, 1874 (St. 1873, c. 286; accepted on October 7, 
1873). West Roxbury was incorporated as a 
Town on March 24, 1851 (St. 1851, c. 250); an- 
nexed to Boston on January 5, 1874 (St. 1873, c. 
314; accepted on October 7, 1873). Brighton 
was incorporated as a Town on February 24, 
1807 (St. 1806, c. 65); annexed to Boston on 
January 5, 1874 (St. 1873, c. 303; accepted on 
October 7, 1873). These are the principal 
annexations. 



THE 

CITY OF BOSTON, 

ITS POWERS AND DUTIES. 

[AS GIVEN AND IMPOSED BY THE CITY CHARTER, APRIL 
29, 1854, AND BY SPECIAL LAWS SINCE PASSED.] 



It has been the aim of the compiler to put in the form of an Act the 
powers now held by, and the duties imposed on, the city, and with this 
aim in view he has made his own arrangement of the sections now in 
force of the charter and the laws since passed. He believes that the 
following sections show the law as it now is, although not in the precise 
words in which it has been passed. The references in the margin are to 
the authority for the law as stated in the sections to which they apply.

in General Court assembled, and by the authority of 
the same, as follows : —

SEAL OF THE CITY. 



35 



SEAL OF THE CITY. 

By Chapter 1, Section 9, Revised Ordinances of 1890, 
it is provided that "the seal of the City shall be circular in 
form, shall bear a view of the city, the motto ' Sicut patri- 
bus, sit deus nobis,' and the inscription, 'Bostonia condita 
A.D. 1630. Civitatis regimine donata A.D. 1822,' as 
established by the ordinance passed January 2, 1823, as 
herewith set forth : " — 




The " Ordinance to Establish the City Seal," passed on 
January 2, 1823, provided as follows: "That the design 
hereto annexed, as sketched by John R. Penniman, giving a 
view of the City, be the devise of the city seal ; that the motto 
be as follows, to wit : f Sicut patribus, sit deus nobis ; ' 
and that the inscription be as follows, to wit: 'Bostonia 
condita A.D. 1630. Civitatis regimine donata A.D. 
1822.' " The drawing of the seal established in 1890 revives 
the drawing given on page 221 in the collected Charter and 
Ordinances of 1827. A design by Mr. Penniman appears 
also on the treasury checks of the City, and a fac-simile of 
this sketch is given in the Municipal Registers of 1883 and 
1884. A rough copy is printed opposite the title page. The 
motto of the City seal is taken from i Kings, viii, 57. For 
the penalty in cases of unauthorized use of the City seal, see 
the Pub. St., Chap. 205, § 26.

A constant watch is kept at the head-quarters, City Hall, night and

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 117 

of duty, during which time he is responsible for the correct use of 
the apparatus in giving alarms, for testing the circuits, and for 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 from performing his duties. 

An accurate account is kept of the time of each alarm, of the 
station from which it originates, and of 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 other 
persons near each station have keys to the boxes. There are 501 fire- 
alarm boxes in connection with the head-quarters, numbered variously 
from 2 to 874. 

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. 

Second Alarms are sounded \>y striking ten blows, followed by the 
box number. Third Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows twice, 
followed by the box number. 

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

In cases where special apparatus is wanted, signals are given as fol- 
lows : — 

For Engine Companies 13 blows, 

" Chemical Engine Companies 14 " 

" Hook and Ladder Companies 15 " 

" the Water Tower 16 " 

" Hose Companies 17 " 

to be followed by the numbers of the Companies wanted, and the 
number of the box to which they are called. 

Of other signals given on the fire-alarm bells, 689 indicates a fire 
at Deer Island ; 698 indicates a call from Chelsea for assistance ; 699 in- 
dicates a call upon Chelsea for assistance ; 22 indicates " no school." 

Meridian Bells, at their various locations on churches, school- 
houses, and engine-houses, are struck from the Fire-Alarm office pre- 
cisely at noon (standard time), every day. Correct time is furnished 
by telegraph from the Observatory of Harvard Hniversity, so that ac- 
curacy is secured. 

All bells in the city proper north of Dover street, except the Faneuil 
Hall bell, have been cut out from sounding public alarms.

WATER-SUPPLY DEPARTMENT. 

[Charter, § 74. Rev. Ord., Chap. 21.] 

The first water document published by the City of 
Boston appeared in 1825. The public introduction of water 
from Lake Cochituate, took place on October 25, 1848. The 
history of the Boston Water Works up to January 1, 1868, 
has been written by Nathaniel J. Bradlee ; from 1868 to 
1876, by Desmond FitzGerald ; of the "Additional Supply

from Sudbury River," by A. Fteley. In addition to the 
annual reports on the Cochituate supply, from 1850, and of 
the Mystic supply, from 1866, there are numerous special 
reports. By an act passed in 1875 (Chap. 80), the City 
Council of Boston was authorized to unite the Cochituate and 
Mystic Water boards under one board of three members, to 
be called the Boston Water Board. An ordinance to establish 
the Boston Water Board was passed March 22, 1876. One 
member of this Board is appointed annually, to serve for 
three years from the first day of May. Salary, $3,000, 
each, per annum.

Note. — All the addresses delivered by the Annual Orators were published, except 
those of 1806, 1812, and 1852. The orations of 1792, 1798, 1804, 1807, 1808, 1809, 
181 1, 1816, 1821, 1850, 1854, 1859, and 1876, went through a second edition each ; those 
of 1863 aud 1876 were published also in a more elegant form ; those of 1842 and 
1845 went through four editions each ; that of 1857 through five. The orations from 
1771 to 1788, and the large-paper editions of the orations of 1863 and 1876 are in 
quarto, all others in octavo. 

The names given above are copied from the orations as officially published. The 
Massacre orations were reprinted in a volume in 1785, by Peter Edes, and again in 
1807. For the orators from 1771 to 1851, inclusive, see " The Hundred Boston 
Orators," by James Spear Loring (Boston, 1852) ; and the appendix to the oration of 
1889 for the full names of the orators from 1783 to 1889, inclusive. 



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 September 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. 2-37 

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

MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



April 10, 1645. — Eight reelected, with Edward Tyng foi 
William Tyng. 

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



No election is recorded in 1646, though all but Fowle were 
serving Feb. 25, 1646-47. Probably some chaDge 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.

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 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 
nealth, resigned the office of Mayor, which resignation, however, 
was not accepted by the City Council ; and on the twenty-second 
of November he died, being the only Ma} 7 or who has died in office 
since the organization of the ctty 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. Quinc}'. 

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 } r ear, 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. Pieyce 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 R. Cutter, Chairman of the Board of 
Aldermen, who signed all official papers as " Acting Mayor."

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

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

In 1856 Levi B. Meriam 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 
pluralitj 7 of fifteen votes over James J. Flynn, 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. 



250 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 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 19,861, 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 1888 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-

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 by the sole authority of the Warden, and 
other irregularities, at the annual election, December 8. 



254 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) 1 
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, Februaiy 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. 

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 

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



COMMON COUNCIL. Z55 

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, 18GC), 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 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 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. 



256 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.] 

In 1887, one seat in the representation of Ward 4, and one in 
that of Ward 15, were vacated, and the contestants declared 
elected, the Council exercising its discretion as to the intent of 
the voter in certain cases of technical irregularity. [See City 
Docs. Nos. 6, 11, of 1887.] 

In 1889, one seat in the representation of Ward 3, and one in 
that of Ward 12, were vacated, and the contestants declared 
elected, the intent of the voter in cases of technical irregularity 
being considered.

Council of the City of Boston, from 1827 to 1889." Boston :
