1893. 



The Rules and Ordeus of the Common Council, issued regulni-ly 
from 1822 to 1840, contain the annual register of the City Council and 
the City officers. The volume of 1822 comj^rises fifteen pag(!s. In 1829 
it was ordered that the City charter be inserted. In 183U 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. The Municipal Regis- 
ter was first issued in 1841, as a document of 104 pages. Its contents 
ai'e : Rules and orders of the Common Council ; joint rules ; ordinances 
of the City ; statutes of the Commonwealth relating to the City ; City 
government of 1841, with committees ; dejjartments (compi'ising at that 
time the treasury; law; police; health; public land and buildings, 
lamps and bridges; fire; public charitable institutions) ; jDublic schools; 
and a list of the ward officers. From that date to the j)resent time 
the Municipal Register has been published annually. In 1843 a list 
of members of preceding City governments Avas added, with a necro- 
logical 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 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 estab- 
lished. A list of past city governments of Roxbury and Charlestown 
was added in 1888 and continued to 1890. 



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 first City 
government was organized May 1, 1822 (St. 1821, 
c. 110; accepted March 4, 1822). Roxbury was 
first recognized as a Town by the Court of Assist- 
ants October 8, 1630; it was incorporated as a City 
March 12, 1816 (St. 1846, c. 95; accepted March 
25, 1846), and annexed to Boston January 6, 1868 
(St. 1867, c. 359; accepted 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 annexed to 
Boston January 3, 1870 (St. 1869, c. 349; accepted 
June 22, 1869). Charlestown was founded July 4, 
1629; mcorporated as a City m 1847 (St. 1847, 
c. 29; accepted March 10, 1847); annexed to 
Boston January 5, 1874 (St. 1873, c. 286; ac- 
cepted October 7, 1873). West Roxbury was in- 
corporated as a Town March 24, 1851 (St. 1851, 
c. 250) ; annexed to Boston January 5, 1874 (St. 
1873, c. 314; accepted October 7, 1873). Brighton 
was mcorporated as a Town February 24, 1807 
(St. 1806, c. 65) ; annexed to Boston January 5, 
1874 (St. 1873, c. 303; accepted October 7, 1873). 
These are the principal annexations.

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, tlie city, and on certain 
officers, and with this aim in view he has made his own arrangement 
and construction of the sections now in force of the city charter and 
the laws passed between April 29, 1854, the date of the passage of the 
city charter, and June II, 1893. He believes that these 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.

SEAL OF THE CITY. 



By Chapter 1, Section 6, Revised Ordinances of 1892, 
it is provided that " the seal of the City shall be circular in 
form, shall bear a view of the city, the motto ' Sicut patei- 
Bus, SIT DEUS NOBIS,' and the inscription, 'Bostonia condita 
A.D. 1630. CiviTATis REGiMiNE DONATA A.D. 1822,' 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. Pennimau, giving a 
view of the City, be the devise of the city seal ; that the motto 
be as follows, to wit : " 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 1 Kings viii. 57. For 
the penalty in cases of unauthorized use of the City seal, see 
the Pub. St., Chap. 205, § 26.

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 Februaiy, 
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 Mayor, which resignation, however, was 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 organi- 
zation of the city government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December Josiah Quincy, Jr., was elected Mayor 
by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. ■ Benson 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 Alderman 
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 ballot- 
ings, 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 Ilenry L. Pierce had seventy-nine plurality, 
he was declared duly elected Mayor for the year 187:1 

In 1873 Henry L. Pierce, Mayor of the city, was elected a member of 
the Forty-third 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 Congi-ess 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."

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 organ- 
ized under the new or revised City Charter, which provided for the 
annual election of twelve Aldermen. 

At the municipal election, Dec. 14, 1880, the retui'ns of the precinct 
officers showed William Frost to be elected Alderman by a plurality 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 committee of the Board of 1880, having 
made the recount, reported, December 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 consider 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 ballots for Messrs. WooUey, 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 manj^ 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 precinct 
officers shoAved 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. W^hitten 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, Avhich reported, 



172 MUNICIPAL REGISTEK. 

January 17, that William Frost had 19,861, and Charles Y. Whittenhad 
19,825. On Januaiy 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 precinct 
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 " Leighton; " 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 ad- 
joining name, but being of such length as to partly cover the names in 
question." The committee 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 proceeding, to render 
the whole number of votes certain by taking the highest number of votes 
for candidates on each opposing ticket, adjournment 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 members 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 members 
fi'om Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned meeting, December 
14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident candidates (after 
having been first thrown out by the wai'd officers)^ were counted at the

annual election, December 12, thereby preventing 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, Februar}^ 27, 1851, vacated the seats of tw^o 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, Februai-y 3, 1853, in accoi-dance 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 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 ot 
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 delegation 
from Ward 10, on the ground that more votes were returned than there 
were persons who voted in that ward at the municipal election, — 
occasioned by mistake, probably, in the counting of the ballots, — the 
variation being so great as to affect the election of the whole delegation. 
At the subsequent trial the same members were again returned to the 
Common Council. 

The tenth, January 21, 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 1^67.) 

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. 



COMMON COIIN^CIL. 177 

The twelfth, Jaimary G, 1870, vaeated the seat of a m(!mbcr re- 
turned from Ward 13, for the same reason as recited above. 

The tliirteenth, 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 con- 
tested by J. Q. A. Brackett, and a recount of the original ballots 
showed that said Bi'ackett was elected by a plurality of one ballot over 
F. S. Risteen, and said Brackett was accordingly declai'ed by the Com- 
mon Council of 1872 to be entitled to the seat. Subsequently Mr. Ris- 
teen 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. Xo. 18 for 1872.) 

The sixteenth, January 4, 1874, vacated the seat of a member re- 
turned from Ward 13, because, by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The seventeenth, January 14, 1875, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Waixl 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 aj^peared 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 follow- 
ing-named wards, viz., 3, 13, 16, and 19, because, from an examination 
of the original ballots cast in said wards, it appeared that other per- 
sons 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 bal- 



178 MUNICIPAL KKGISTKR. 

lots 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 yacated and the contestants declared elected, the Coun- 
cil exercising its discretion as to the intent of the voter in certain cases 
of technical irregularity. (See City Docs. I^os. 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. 

See "Reports of Controverted Elections in the Common Council of 
the City of Boston, from 1827 to 1889." Boston: 1889, pp. xvii and 
277. 

The longest continuous service in the City Council is that of David F. 
Barry, member of the Common Council since 1880, now (1893) presi- 
dent of that body. EJiphalet Williams (president of the Common 
Council, 1829) served fifteen 3'ears, but not consecutively. James J. 
Flynn served twelve years in the Common Council (president, 1883) 
and three years in the Board of Aldermen. Thomas Wetmore served 
eleven years, not consecutive, in the Board of Aldermen.
