From the year 1822 to 1840 the city annually 



issued a volume entitled " Rules and Orders of the 
Common Council," which contained the annual regis- 
ter of the City Council and a list of 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 Yolume. 
In 1832 an index was added. The Rules of 1840 
contain eighty-five pages, and three pages of index. 
The Municipal Register was first issued in 1841, 
as a document 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 published 
annually. In 1843 a list of the members of preceding 
City governments was added, with a necrological 
record. As late as 1863 it was also customary to 
publish in this volume the latest ordinances and 
i-ecent 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 established. 
A list of the members of the past city governments 
of Roxbury and Charlestown was added in 1888 and 
continued to 1890.

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

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 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 August 1, 1894. 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. 



69 




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 patri- 
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. Penniman, 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.

SEWER DIVISION. 

Henry W. Sanborn, Deputy Superintendent. Salary, $3,000. 
[Office, Room 44, City Hall.] 
The Deputy Superintendent][of this^division has charge of the mainten- 
ance and construction of all common sewers, catch-basins, and street- 
culverts, together with the necessary engineering and supervision, the 
granting of permits for all connections to be made with the common

MAIN DRAINAGE WORKS. 

By an order of the Board of Aldermen, approved Feb. 25, 1875, the 
Mayor was authorized to appoint a scientific commission of three 
members to examine the system of sewerage in this city, and to 
suggest any improvements which could be made therein. Accord- 
ingly, the following persons were selected by the Mayor for such com- 
mission: E. S. Chesbrough, of Chicago, Moses Lane, of Milwaukee, 
and Charles F. Folsom, M.D., of Boston, who submitted their report 
(City Doc. 3 of 1876), recommending the construction of intercept- 
ing sewers, at a cost of about $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 
Doc. 70), recommending the immediate undertaking of the project; 
and on August 9, 1877, a loan of $3,713,000 was authorized to meet the 
expense of constructing a lai"ge intercepting sewer from Charles River 
across the city, in a southerly direction, to Moon Island. 

Additional appropriations have been made at various times as follows, 
which shows the amounts appropriated for Improved Sewerage and ex- 
pended by the City Engineer's Department.

Construction began August 9, 1877, under the dii-ection of Joseph P. 
Davis, City Engineer, and was continued by him until his resignation in 
March, 1880, then by his successor, Henry M. Wightman, City En- 
gineer, until his death in April, 1885 ; since this date until the present 
time by William Jackson, City Engineer. 

In 1885, $65,000 was transferred from the appropriation for Improved 
Sewerage (as shown in table) to the Sewer Department, and expended 
under Thomas J. Young, Superintendent of Sewers, together vpith 
$80,103.40 more, $145,103.40 in all, in building that portion of the Dor- 
chester Branch Interceptor between Mt. Vernon and Shamrock streets. 

To get the total cost for construction of the Intercepting system this 
sum, $145,103.40, should be added to the sum of the " Payments to 
January 31, 1894," $6,206,896.83 in the table, making a total of 
$6,852,000.23. 

In 1884 a sewer was built by the Sewer Department, Horace H. 
Moses, Superintendent of Sewers, in First street, from Dorchester 
avenue to D street, South Boston, which has been subsequently made a 
part of the Intercepting system. The cost of this sewer was $30,766.52, 
w^hich, added to $6,352,000.23, as above, makes the total expendi- 
ture of the city for construction of the Intercepting system to date, 
$6,382,766.75. 

On the first of January, 1884, construction was sufl&ciently advanced 
to permit the works being put in operation. Since that time the exi^end- 
itures have been for the extension of the Intercepting sewers around 
the North End of the city ; for the extension of the South Boston Inter- 
ceptors on both sides of the peninsula; and for the extension of the 



152 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Dorchester Interceptor, which is now practically completed as far as 
Granite avenue, and operative as far as Neponset avenue. 

In 1890 the State Board of Metropolitan Sewerage Commissioners 
began the construction of the Charles-river Valley Sewer, an extension 
of the Boston Main Interceptor, and completed the same as far as Wal- 
tham, in the spring of 1892, at an approximate cost of $800,000, includ- 
ing estimated land damages, under the direction of Howard A. Carson, 
Chief Engineer. This system is in operation throughout its entire 
length from Waltham to Moon Island at the present time (May, 1894). 

Adding $800,000, the total cost of construction of the whole system to 
City and State becomes $7,182,766.75, to date. 

The maintenance of the system was transferred from the Engineer's 
Department to the Sewer Department, Jan. 2, 1888.

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 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 Quiney, 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. 
Quiney. 

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 Aldei'man, 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 jDerformed by Benjamin L. Alien, 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

of all the ballots cast at said election was demanded and made ; and it 
appeai'ing therefrom that Henry L. Pierce had seventy-nine plm-ality, 
he was declared duly elected Mayor for the year 1873. 

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 Congress on December 1, 
1873.

In 1859 Timothy A. Sumner resigned, on accomit 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. 

In 1888 William P. Carroll 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 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 returns 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 ta 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 C4eorge S. Dexter, standing next higliest 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 precinct 
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. 



ALDERMEN. 185 

Januai-y 17, that William Frost had 19,861, and Chavles V. Whittenhad 
19,825. On January 19, 1882, the seat was awarded to Mr. Frost. 

For reports of contested seats in the Boai'd 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 staled 
his intention of not ap^^earing 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, Mai'ch 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, Febi'uary 9, 1843, vacated the seats of three members 
from 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 ward officers)^ were counted at the

COMMON COUNCIL. 189 

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, 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, Febrviary 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 
wari'ants 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 J^lections, 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 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, probablj-, 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 24, 1867, vacated the seat of a member from 
Wai'd 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 adjotirned 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. 



190 MUNICIPAL llEGISTKH. 

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

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

The foui'teenth, January 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a member 
returned fi-om Ward 7, for the same reason. 
The fifteenth occurred as follows : 

At the annual municipal election 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 Brackett was elected by a plurality of one ballot over 
F. S. Risteen, and said Brackett was accordingly declared 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 by some one of the ward ofllcers after said 
ballots were deposited by the A'-oters. 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 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 Ward 1, because, by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward, it appeared that another pei'son was elected. 

The eighteenth, January 4, 1877, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 20, because, by the count of the original ballots cast in said 
ward, it appeared that another j^erson 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- 



COMMON COUNCIL. 191 

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 rejjresentation of Ward 4 and one in that of 
Ward 15 were vacated 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. 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. 

See "Reports of Controveited 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 Citj Council is that of David F. 
Barry, member of the Common Council from 1880 to 1893 (president 
in 1887, '88, '91, '92, '93), now (1894), a member of the Board of Alder- 
men. Eliphalet Williams (president of the Common Council, 1829) 
served fifteen years, 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.
